Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental restructuring if justices do not take steps to "heal" the court in the near future. 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.


Sen. Dems: Stop following the Constitution or else.

There is a reason the Founding Fathers enacted a document with enumerated powers that separated the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches. Those idiots need to craft language they like and get it passed INSTEAD of using the courts to upend the rule of laws they don't like

Fine. Excellent START by ruling the infamous Sullivan Law, and every other similar law at any level, to be a violation of the 2nd Amendment, and retroactively null and void. Good start! Then confess that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided, confess the error, and throw it in the garbage. Good start towards healing the nation, I believe.

The arrogance of the dems is breathtaking. The SCOTUS has equal footing to Congress. It cannot be "restructured" without changing the Constitution. Nor can the Electoral College, or the Election and number of Senators, and lots of other stuff that has been in place for over 200 years and is working well, EXCEPT, for blocking the insane path of the Left. These people are thugs. They threaten to get their way. We need to remember this when dealing with dems. They don't deserve our respect or understanding. They are waiting to meet us in a dark alley and club us into submission. We need to be well armed and ready to defend ourselves. They have made it clear they are NOT going to play nice and rules mean nothing to them.

If the Supreme Court were to say that the Senate must heal and if they did not the court would declare some of their rules unconstitutional, these Senators would cry 'separation of powers' yet they do not hesitate to make threats themselves. Politicization of the Supreme Court began under Democrats (remember Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas, Bret Kavenaugh, etc.?) and the infringement on legislative power by judicial activist judges. Democrats have no one but themselves to blame.

Sorry, #7, but the composition of the Court can be changed by congress. The language in the U.S. constitution provides for that. It is an excellent reason for Republicans to retain majority status in the Congress.

We do not have a conservative court. Roberts is not a conservative. He proved that by rewriting the Obamacare law and then again when he questioned Trump's intent regarding the census. Not his business to know Trump's intent, just supposed to rule whether it is constitutional which it is.

No, #17, not easily "by Congress", by BOTH of the other two branches, Legislative and Executive agreeing to change it. IF both houses of Congress can overrride a Presidential veto, then, yes, Congress alone can change it. But NOT the Senate, and not by any ordinary bill passed in Congress unless the President agrees, or they have two thirds. Neither is going to happen any time soon. And they might not like the snap back from We, the People, if they do it.

As we reported two days ago, Joe Biden completely made no sense when he was trying to explain the Wuhan coronavirus relief bill. It was really bad and it explains why they’re afraid to have him deliver an address to Congress or do any kind of a real solo press conference, because at this point they have to be afraid this is all going to fall apart if he does anything live and this all becomes too obvious to the American people. But there’s only so long that they can hold this off. And it’s getting worse, as video today revealed. Biden was holding an event to announce the nomination

Nancy Pelosi’s top priority is to turn America into a one-party nation ruled by Democrats. Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab. The bill eviscerates state voting laws and forces all the states to conform to a set of rules that includes automatic voter registration. Anyone who goes to a DMV or applies for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attends a public college will be automatically enrolled to vote.

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.
