The next assault

Post by ed » Mon Oct 08, 2018 11:18 am

Facing a Supreme Court controlled by five solidly conservative justices, liberals have already started to attack the legitimacy of the majority bloc and discussed ways to eventually undo its power without waiting for one of its members to retire or die.

Some have gone as far as proposing — if Democrats were to retake control of Congress and the White House in 2020 or after — expanding the number of justices on the court to pack it with liberals or trying to impeach, remove and replace Justice Kavanaugh.

If they can't drum up popular support for legislation, they go to the courts. If the courts are agin' 'em (note my evolving redneck twang) then change the courts because, you know, they are right.

This fight would be ugly.

FDR tried to "pack the court" like that, but congress didn't agree.

However the number of Supremes is not in the constitution, and has changed a few times early on by legislation.

So it would be legal.

So is what they did to Kavenaugh. Thats not the point.

It is a tactic and one that I have no doubt they would try to employ.

That is not true.

They can get away with it (maybe).

There may be illegalities in there somewhere but what Feinstein did was legal. Really slimey but legal.

“This confirmation vote will not necessarily be the last word on Brett Kavanaugh serving a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court,” said Brian Fallon, executive director of the liberal group Demand Justice and the top spokesman for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Feinstein prevailed upon Ford to commit perjury.

I'm guessing there was even a brainstorming session to get the story just right.

How many times do I have to ask? You want me to come to Chi and beat it out of you? You'd probably like that you bastard.

Answer me, dammit!!!!! I'm losing patience, I am too agitated to serve on the court now.

But you see, it is justifiable.

Unless the adults in the party start taking a principled stand against this nonsense we could be looking at some unpleasant times ahead.

Suppose the democrats "act out" using the likes of Antifa. How long will it be before the right meets them in the streets?

What has enabled this flight from reason and constitutional government in favor of tribalism and emotion Uber alles? Is it schools, colleges, the Internet? Some toxic combination of all three?

Question 1: Is it a working day?

Question 2: Berkeley, or somewhere that law abiding citizens often carry?
