Democrats must consider court-
packing when they regain power.
It’s the only way to save democracy.

Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court, and President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to succeed him, is the doomsday scenario liberals feared when Senate Republicans thwarted the appointment of Merrick Garland in 2016: The GOP’s brazen act of democratic sabotage will almost certainly deliver the high court to the far right for a generation. In the years ahead, the court will probably further erode reproductive rights, gay rights and voting rights, ushering in the darkest era in American history since the post-Reconstruction period. Sounds hysterical, right? After all, Democrats will get their chance at

I hope Leftists keep flapping their lips about these truly radical ideas. Will help people understand why they must be defeated in November.

Does David Faris know we’re a Constitutional Republic and not a democracy? So packing the court is how Democrats get laws they can’t get passed through the Congress as required by the Constitution! My guess is David doesn’t have a Constitution nor has he ever read it! Democracy is majority rule or mob rule and our Founders wanted nothing to do with it. But what do I know? President Trump is trying to save the Republic not a democracy aka the swamp!

Hmmm. Since we have always had a representative republic, there is NO "democracy" here to "save", idiot.

Not happening, zero chance. FDR tried it way back in the 30s when he was stymied by the court in his communist moves, too.

They are just so hysterical that they are hyperventilating and dizzy, any sort of nonsense seems like a plan to them.

Unlike FDR´s time, this time they will succeed if given the chance. They mean to enslave you. Look to Venezuela, Soros, all the psychopathic leftists. Times have changed.
There are only two choices, go and do it first. Or never let the left have the chance. It´s time to start indicting, trying, convicting and jailing, the treasonous leftists. They are making this a war for our survival.

The dRATS were so arrogant as to believe that their old queen bee, PIAPS, was going to produce the voters needed to later pack the Supreme Court during Herself´s tenure. They are paying the price for pushing the electorate to bring in a swamp killer, instead of dweller. HA! If we are lucky, after the midterms and six years later, Trump will have tanned plenty of their hides.

The Dems have handed the Repubs a great campaign platform - "Dems want to change the rules when they lose elections. Vote for the Dems and you´ll get court packing!" That will turn off independents and even some Dems and totally energize Republicans.

And after November, if the Repubs retain a majority in the Senate Trump should talk about court packing and the Dems´ plans and say he won´t do it because it is repugnant.

I agree with #14 and not #11.

The writer of this WaPost mess, a professor of course, says, The idea of court-packing — adding extra justices to the Supreme Court to change its ideological makeup — causes most Americans to blanch.

And he is right.

And so I say, Please oh please make this your campaign banner!

#3 has the right idea, but does not go far enough. Have Trump nominate all 25 on his first list, get them seated, and then have them declare that 33 is the final total by judicial fiat.

"dems will pack Supreme Court "when/if" they get back in power"

FDR tried the same thing...it did not work then, it won´t work now.

No, I am not that old...I just know my history.

My advice is since the dems might not return to power anytime soon...I say just do it now.

Wow, it is so much fun watching the nutcase LIE-berals absolutely loosing it!!!!!!

As with everything else, the LIE-berals set precedence, and then cry when that change is used against them. It was the Demon-RATs that decided years ago that a lame duck president should NOT appoint a Supreme Court justice in an election year. The Republicans just held them to that standard when Ovomit tried to appoint Merrick Garland. And they are still crying and whining about it!!!!!

Now they want to talk about "packing the court". But they will cry the loudest when the Republicans get the upper hand and do just that if the Demon-RATs get the chance to change the rules...

I can´t open the link given, but, for what it´s worth, Faris has also written that Democrats should immediately grant statehood to PR and to DC, should immediately divide CA into at least three states. This, he says, would be "fair" and give a permanent majority to Democrats in the U.S. Senate. But, rural Illinois, rural NY, rural Colorado, eastern Washington State.... all those areas dominated politically by the big Blue cities should also have U.S. Senators who represent THEIR culture.

Jeanine Pirro Says Trump Is Unstoppable

The Wrap, by Jon Levine    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 7/11/2018 9:39:41 PM     Post Reply
Jeanine Pirro gave a glowing assessment of Donald Trump’s chances for 2020, saying that if the president decides to run for re-election, he would probably be unbeatable. “I have to tell you. I don’t think he can be beat right now. I think the left is so disorganized,” Pirro told TheWrap in an interview Tuesday, saying that she could not think of a single Democrat who could pose a credible threat to Trump in 2020. “They are just making fools of themselves. They protest and they are not even sure what they’re protesting,” she added. “If you say something that

The Pew Research Center asked Americans who they thought did the best job as president in their lifetime. The top pick: former President Barack Obama. Obama was the choice of 44 percent of the respondents in the poll, which was published Wednesday. Bill Clinton came in second with 33 percent and Ronald Reagan was third with 32 percent. Although not yet even halfway through his first term, President Donald Trump got 19 percent to place him in fourth place, ahead of both Bushes, John F. Kennedy and Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Christiane Amanpour and husband, Jamie Rubin, are calling it quits after 20 years of marriage. The Washington Post cited "a friend of the pair" that said the CNN host and her longtime partner are divorcing, though the split is "amicable" and "the two remain close friends." The couple wed in Rome in 1998 one year after meeting in Sarajevo, Bosnia, over "late-night margaritas." Amanpour, 60, and Rubin, 58, share an 18-year-old son, Darius.

Rosenstein Asks Prosecutors to Help
With Kavanaugh Papers in Unusual Request
New York Times, by Katie Benner    Original Article

WASHINGTON — Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday. Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide. But in an email sent this week to the nation’s 93 United States attorneys, Mr. Rosenstein asked each

Democrats ready ´Abolish ICE´

A Democratic proposal to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement would shutter the agency, probe whether its agents had flouted international law, and create a special commission to rethink how the federal government handles asylum seekers and undocumented immigrants. The text of Rep. Mark Pocan´s "Abolish ICE" bill, obtained Tuesday by The Washington Post, was sent to House Democrats as they returned from the Fourth of July recess. The legislation, still being tweaked before release, is co-sponsored by Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., and Rep. Adriano Espaillat, D-N.Y., both of whom are immigrants. In an interview, Pocan, D-Wis., said the legislation would

Starbucks eliminating plastic straws from

NEW YORK — Starbucks is going strawless. The coffee company announced Monday that it will phase out plastic straws from all of its stores by 2020. The changes will help Starbucks eliminate more than 1 billion plastic straws per year, the company said. Plastic straws contribute to ocean pollution and pose a danger to marine life. Some governments have begun banning them. To eliminate straws, Starbucks is transitioning from the flat, plastic lids that require them, to ones that feature a raised lip you can drink from. The new designs have drawn comparisons to an adult “sippy cup.” (Snip) Frappuccino

President Trump has now been in office a year and a quarter. President Trump’s results when compared to those of President Obama at the same time are stunning. In every economic measurement, President Trump far out-performs President Obama. The mainstream media and Democrat Party continue to smear President Trump with the fake Russia collusion narrative. In doing so they also continue to ignore President Trump’s many accomplishments. When compared to Obama [and most presidents], President Trump’s efforts to shore up the economy are historic.

Comey, who was fired by President Donald Trump in May 2017, issued a tweet urging Americans to snub Republicans this November. “This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that ‘Ambition must … counteract ambition,’” tweeted the former FBI director, a longtime supporter of Republicans. “All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall.
