Biden Orders Commission To Study How Democrats Can Pack The Supreme Court

WASHINGTON DC- OCTOBER 06 Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc Connell talks to reporters after the Senate voted to confirm Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh at the U.S. Capitol

The number returned to nine justices in 1869 and has remained so since.

"The Commission's objective is to provide an analysis of the principal arguments in the contemporary public debate for and against Supreme Court reform, including an appraisal of the merits and legality of particular reform proposals", the White House said in a statement.

Democrats accused Republicans of hypocrisy a year ago when the Senate quickly confirmed Trump's appointment of conservative Justice Amy Coney Barrett a week before the presidential election after the death of liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg the prior month.

Proponents for the expansion of the Supreme Court are looking to create a partisan balance in the Supreme Court following Trumps three conservative leaning Justice nominations.

Translation: Biden, his team, far-left socialist democrats want to pack the court. Legal adviser to Biden's campaign Bob Bauer and Yale Law School professor Cristina Rodriguez will serve as chairs of the commission.

The order "directs that the Commission complete its report within 180 days of its first public meeting", it added.

Ford expected to impose second Stay-at-Home order
Ford had said that a new stay-at-home order was not issued because it produced tremendous ill effect on both children and adults. He says hospitals are reaching capacity and patients in the GTA are being sent to other parts of the province for care.

After the death of the liberal Ginsburg and the confirmation of the conservative Barrett to her seat on the court, the dynamic shifted.

"My Democrat friends decry the last president for weakening our institutions with his words and behavior but they now cheer the effort to pack the Supreme Court and end the Senate filibuster, which would forever diminish institutions at our Republic's foundation", Sen.

Before the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Roberts and liberal justices formed a majority that generally left the issue up to elected officials, saying judges don't have the expertise or power to overrule decisions made with the public's health in mind. Its launch comes amid speculation as to whether he will be able to put his own stamp on the court if liberal Justice Stephen Breyer retires. It is unclear if the commission will provide recommendations to Biden, or simply analysis of the arguments for and against reform.

The 82-year-old Breyer is the court's oldest member and the senior member of its three-justice liberal wing. "But that authority, like the rule of law, depends on trust, a trust that the court is guided by legal principle, not politics". "But whatever the commission says, the truth is that Democrats want to pack the Court to implement a leftist agenda that Americans don't want".

"The topics it will examine include the genesis of the reform debate; the Court's role in the Constitutional system; the length of service and turnover of justices on the Court; the membership and size of the Court; and the Court's case selection, rules, and practices", the statement added. Mike Davis of the conservative Article III Project called the news of the commission's creation "alarming" in a statement, adding that "there is real danger in President Biden giving credibility to the idea of court packing; he is playing with fire and threatening the constitutional foundation of this country". The aim of his address - named in honor of his late conservative colleague Justice Antonin Scalia - was to "make those whose initial instincts may favor important structural change or other similar institutional change, such as forms of 'court-packing, ' think long and hard before they embody those changes in law."... "It also raises serious red flags as to what unconstitutional actions President Biden is planning that a more favorable Supreme Court might tolerate".
