Dems: Supreme Court Must be "Healed"
Aug 13th, 2019 at 8:42pm

The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court's conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.

"The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it," the brief said. "Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be 'restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.'"


I guess that "separation of powers," thingy isn't working out so good.

Supreme Court has been sick for a long time.  This is most clearly seen when they allow corporations to abuse eminent domain.

Right, that was the opinion of the "progressive" majority, that "public use" means the public can park in the casino parking lot that was built after the government condemned the houses that used to be there and sold the property to rich cronies... And it will all be good because the casino brings in more tax revenue, and of course the "progressive" theory is that more tax revenue allows the government to do more good things to help us all! Cheesy

That "progressive" majority doesn't exist anymore, which is why "progressives" want to "restructure" the court, so it once again has a "progressive" majority that can keep reaching conclusions and writing opinions based on the "precedents" of the New Deal Court. Or on nothing at all but their feelings about something...

Along the same line, every Democrat in the Senate is eager to alter the Constitution to restrict your political speech.

That's not really surprising...

Essentially correct, but you make government sound passive when they are malignantly evil.  They want the tax revenue.  They are abusing eminent domain.

Or as Jeff and LBM would say, "imminent domain."  That was hysterical, they both did it over and over.  They didn't know what eminent means

Here's some good news about a court in SC.-

Just think, if Ginsberg would die and Trump appoint another Justice like Clarence Thomas, SCOTUS could get busy making the "progressives" howl even louder about the need to totally abandon what's left of our Constitutional federal system. Smiley
