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.

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

Democrats have really shown their true colors... 1. They say that love America, but clearly hate the Constitution 2. They say they are all about protecting the poor, yet everything they do harms the poor and keeps them impoverished 3. They say they are the champion of the working class, yet tax them to death and do everything to harm the ones who EMPLOY them. 4. They talk about freedom of expression and their love for 'free thought' but have absolutely NO room for any thoughts but their own. 5. They speak of their disdain for those who would impose moral beliefs on others, and if you NOT believe like them then you are the apostate. 6. They say they are the more intelligent of the two major parties... yet every 2 years THEY are the ones who have to round up the most stupid and ignorant voters to get them elected. Democrats, for the most part, are fools. Some are also stupid and some are mad. But they are ALL fools.

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.

Abrams announced Tuesday she would not enter the crowded Democratic presidential primary, and would instead focus her efforts in the year-and-a-half before Election Day on combating voter suppression and boosting participation in the 2020 census. “I’ve just come to the decision that

It’s not that they hold it against Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana, but they fear the rest of the country may not be ready for a 37-year-old, married, openly gay man to sit in the White House, so they are reluctant to help him win the party’s presidential nomination. “Pete Buttigieg is interesting to me, but, honestly, he is probably not electable, and the last thing I want is Donald Trump in office,” said David Cline. “I do believe his sexuality is an issue for folks, which is too bad.

When it was first reported that pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein had died in a maximum-security prison, supposedly by suicide, the Internet was immediately ablaze with conspiracy theories. That's not so strange considering that several people had warned beforehand that Epstein had dirt on many important people; people who would be well served by his untimely death. An autopsy has now found, the Washington Post reports, that Epstein "sustained multiple breaks in his neck bones, according to two people familiar with the findings." And that's rather... interesting...

The case, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. City of New York, is the first major challenge to gun laws since 2010, the senators said. According to SCOTUS blog, the New York State Pistol and Rifle Association, representing gun owners who live in the city, are challenging the city's ban on transferring licensed, unloaded guns anywhere outside city limits --
