In a stunning display of audacity, California Democrat serial fabulist Rep. Adam Schiff is pushing to “unpack” the Supreme Court by adding more justices to the bench. This is just another example of the left’s attempt to change the rules when they can’t win by existing ones. It’s like a game of Monopoly where they keep trying to create new rules that benefit them.
Let’s not forget that Democrats were crying foul after the 2016 election when Hillary Clinton won the popular vote but lost the Electoral College. Suddenly, they were calling the Electoral College “archaic” and demanding that presidents be elected by the popular vote only. But if the tables were turned and Trump had won the popular vote, you can bet they would defend the Electoral College vehemently. It’s all about convenience for the Democrats.
Now, Schiff and his fellow Democrats are enraged that conservatives have a 6-3 majority on the Supreme Court thanks to President Trump’s nominations. They claim the court is “packed,” a term historically used to describe expanding the number of justices on the court. But here’s the catch – the number of justices has remained at nine since 1869. So much for their definition of “packed.”
Schiff’s call to “unpack” the Supreme Court is nothing but a thinly veiled attempt to stack it with left-leaning justices who will vote in their favor. It’s a desperate power play aimed at changing the rules for political gain. And let’s not forget that Schiff is shamelessly using this issue to raise funds for his 2024 senate race. He’s exploiting his disdain for the high court for personal gain. Typical Schiff.
But wait, there’s more. Schiff’s plan to “unpack” the court includes expanding the number of justices, instituting term limits, and enacting a code of ethics. The sheer irony of Schiff calling for a code of ethics is laughable. This is the same person who perpetuated the Russian collusion hoax against President Trump and defended Hunter Biden’s questionable laptop. The hypocrisy is astounding.
In conclusion, Schiff’s attempt to “unpack” the Supreme Court is nothing more than a power grab disguised as righteous reform. It sets a dangerous precedent that both sides will exploit when they have the chance. Instead of respecting the existing rules and working within them, Democrats resort to changing the game when they don’t get their way. It’s a disgraceful display of politics at its worst. America deserves better.
Expanding the size of the Supreme Court isn’t extreme or unprecedented — but the opinions of this Court certainly are.
