Not a good thing when Congress threatens to "restructure" SCOTUS

There was a slightly under the radar, yet very ominous threat that was leveled on the SCOTUS by some members of Congress. That threat was that unless the SCOTUS changes the way it rules on legislation, Congress will seek to "restructure" the Court.

If there ever was a step towards becoming a real banana republic, this is a lunge forward.

It gets wonky because the Constitution cements the need of a supreme court, but doesn't say how it should be constructed, thus the eventual passing of the Judiciary Act of 1869. And with law, that's where Congress gets involved.

They are indeed getting froggy.

so let me make sure I've got this straight..

SCOTUS spent much of the time it was a liberal court legislating from the bench, usurping authority and power on the hill... and no one cared.. the house was majority R at that point afterall...

but now that the house is majority D.. and SCOTUS is a conservative court.. even though there have been no major "legislative" actions taken by the court in the past couple of years.. NOW the Dems want to restructure the court...

yep.. makes perfect sense to me.. lol...

Its a sad day when more clowns are employed by Congress than by Barnum and Bailey..

Seems like fairplay. One group wants to restructure the Supreme Court, son another group gets to restructure the Senate and Congress.

Personally I’m more for the latter than the former.

I’m sure any changes will be a net positive for the nation and totally won’t be another power structure in place to benefit the entrenched globalist pedophile oligarchs.

R's have the WH and the Senate right now. Trump should oblige them, expand it to 13 or 15 justices and pack it with pro 2nd Amendment anti-abortion types and watch their fucking heads explode.

Yep...and to add to that, I know several Democrats that are very pro-2A, at least in my area. I no longer care about the proverbial D or A - I simply care about what they "believe" and support.

Meh. The Supreme Court gets to interpret the law. After the law gets appealed to the 9th Circuit and upheld, SCOTUS will just reverse the 9th Circuit and hold it that whatever Congress decides to do is Unconstitutional or otherwise invalid. Say what you will about them, but as a general principle, the Judiciary as a whole absolutely does not like any political body fucking around with it.

The lefts agenda is such that they need the judicial system too legislate from the bench to even function as a party.

No we should not expand the courts seats. No we should not give in or compromise with the leftists.

What a dumbass (but balsey) move by these failing legislators. SHOT FIRED over the bow, now what will the legislators suggest to fix the problem?
  1. SCOTUS Term Limits?
  2. More Justices?
  3. Fewer Justices?
  4. Congressional approval for all SCOTUS decisions?
  5. Popular uprising to intimidate justices into submission to the D's?
Whatever they propose, these few D's kicked sand in the eyes of 1/3 of the government, the only third that is not up for re-election. May SCOTUS revisit their friendly disposition toward Congress and FIX CONGRESS. Find a case regarding Term limits (present or past) and FIX the problem. Or how about a negative determination regarding legislative pensions. Make it a federal crime for members of congress or their families to invest in markets effected by legislation (to address the ethical conflict of interest). And if such cases do not exist, they probably have Lawyer friends who will create such a case and start running it up the chain of courts, where most folks are heavily invested in keeping the courts running, secure, and unmolested by Congress-cretins.

I think there's a phrase in that old document that has something do do with the people actually being able to unfuck the government, should it get to that point. Congress should re-read that part.

HA - members of congress use that part when they are making meme's to share around the chamber.
They know what it says - they just don't care because they know whats best for us, even if we don't like it.


Besides - we should just be polite - no need to stoop to their level

Posturing...I doubt it is anything more. They need their names in the media to feel fulfilled.

I mean I don't like it, but there is nothing unconstitutional about it.

remember this is a country which once banned fucking alcohol. Just think of it. Crazy. And it was done all legal like.

If you think our politics are fucked up now, watch the Ken Burns documentary on Prohibition. Its on Netflix. I mean that was some shit the way that went down.

Restructuring Congressional Districts. Try to restructure the southern border to nill. The Electoral College. Now the SCOTUS.

Its all the the Socialist master plan. Restructure everything one bite at a time. Put everything in their favor to set up house in Washington for a long, long time.
