Erica Carlin| Democrats are up in arms about the recent decisions made by the Supreme Court. I don’t know if you’ve heard, but they’ve started calling the SCOTUS a ‘rogue’ court. So, of course, talks of packing the court full of more Democratic Justices is back on the table.
Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez even accused the court of overstepping their authority—She’s clearly clueless. Meanwhile, the Democrats are pushing to make the court another executive branch of the government.
Jeanine Pirro blasted AOC (and court-packing Dems) for their delusional conquest, “These people have no idea what’s going on. And that’s why I had my head in my hands. AOC said the Supreme Court engaged in an overreach of its authority. Does she have any idea what the Supreme Court’s job is in terms of the Constitution?”
Pirro continued, “She says we’re no longer majority rule. By the way, the Supreme Court doesn’t make decisions based upon majority rule. The way they want to pack the court, they’ll make it another legislative branch. And what makes them think they’re the majority, by the way? What makes them believe that? ”
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre confirmed the president’s position on the issue during an Air Force Once press gaggle. Some Democrats have argued for court-packing in recent years, but those calls were amplified following SCOTUS’ decision to overrule key abortion cases Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey on Friday.
I have serious doubts about the validity of that claim. Court packing has been an objective of the left for years. Many Democrats have called for the overthrow of the filibuster just to reach that goal.
Many of Biden’s fellow Democrats have argued for expanding the court to offset the influence of the three justices appointed under former President Donald Trump’s administration.
“So, I know I’ve… I was asked this question yesterday, and I’ve been asked it before — and I think the president himself … about expanding the court,” Jean-Pierre said to reporters. “That is something that the president does not agree with. That is not something that he wants to do.”
