History not only repeats itself, it rhymes too.
The Democrats have a few ‘go to’ plays that they like to call when things get tough for them. They are so predictable you could set your watch by them.
The most obvious and widely used is identify politics and stirring up division among racial lines. Back during the Civil War and though the 50’s the Democrats appealed to white Americans by demonizing blacks and other minorities. Now they just do the opposite as shifting demographics reward switching sides.
Just like the left’s hero, the power obsessed FDR, the only man arrogant enough to run for 4 terms as POTUS, spitting in the face of Washington’s noble example and forcing the law to be changed to limit presidencies to two terms, Biden is looking to pack the Supreme Court.
When the Democrats win elections they tell us that ‘elections have consequences’. When we win elections they flip the chess board over, take a you know what on it and tell CNN they won.
However, this time they risk the Union collapsing if they tear up the Constitution and add four more ‘Justices’, all with a simple majority vote…
Fox News is reporting:
‘Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody and 19 other Republican state attorneys general sent a letter to President Biden and congressional leaders opposing efforts to alter the makeup of the Supreme Court.
Biden has already announced the formation of the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States, which will explore potential court reforms and address issues, including the size of the court. Days later, Democratic lawmakers introduced a bill to expand the court from nine justices to 13.
“We believe that such actions will seriously undermine our constitutional system, the public’s confidence in our courts, and the rule off law,” the attorneys general said in their letter, which was addressed to Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.
The letter pointed to why the country’s Founding Fathers made a point of having an independent judiciary.
“The Framers created a strict separation of the judicial power from the other branches of government because the colonists had been subjected to judicial abuses by the Crown,” the letter said. “The judicial branch and the judicial power created by Article III was to prevent the new federal government from repeating those abuses.”
The letter went on to address recent accusations from Democrats that the Supreme Court – which currently has a 6-3 majority of justices who were appointed by Republican presidents – has been politicized.
“The justices of the Supreme Court have repeatedly shown their independence, despite their differences and the labels some have put on them,” the attorneys general said. “When elected officials do not like the outcome in a case, that is not a sign of the politicization of the court, but of the system working. After all, the whims of elected officials are the very thing against which the court is there to protect the people.”‘
The Republican Attorneys General went on to warn that the act would result in the ‘demise of democracy’, and they could not be more right.
Packing the court is the most egregious abuse of our system of government we have seen … since the 2020 election BS. If Biden does in fact try to add 4 more Marxist ‘Justices’ to the high court red states will be left with no option but to begin executing contingency plans to secede.
Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida and other red states need to opt out of this Marxist take over. We could form a new union and name is The Republic of Texas … and we could rename the states that remain ‘TAXUS’.
