A bipartisan effort from Reps. Collin Peterson and Denver Riggleman seeks to codify the nine-seat Supreme Court panel of justices, and undermine attempts to expand the high court.Mr. Peterson, Minnesota Democrat, and Mr. Riggleman, Virginia Republican, introduced a constitutional amendment this week to limit lawmakers’ ability to reshape the court. The two argued that attempts to “pack the court” will only worsen partisan divisions and lead to retaliation and the deterioration of American institutions down the road.

I have an idea. Let’s Ditch the senate and make the Supreme Court number equal to 100. That way if they legislate from the bench we kinda get what the constitution had in mind

A narrowly worded, carefully thought out Constitutional Amendment to limit the SCOTUS to 9 justices is probably something that might actually pass.

If you thought liberal journalists and hosts were ugly to Brett Kavanaugh, you haven’t seen anything yet. Minutes after Donald Trump finished nominating Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on Saturday, MSNBC speculated on secret coded messages the President was sending to racists. If that wasn't enough, race hustler Al Sharpton even disgustingly singled out Barrett’s children. Using the nominee’s two adopted Black children as some sort of prop, Sharpton sneered, “Not to mention, that was the least diverse audience I've ever seen in around announcement like this.

Those two words encapsulated my Election 2016 thought process, which led me to vote for Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson. In these past four years, however, I’ve undergone a political epiphany of sorts: I will now be voting early next month to re-elect President Trump. In Donald Trump, I’ve discovered a president who matches measured military restraint with conservative legislative policies.With this president, opposing pre-emptive wars, defending the Second Amendment, and protecting the unborn are no longer mutually exclusive.

America faces yet another challenge ahead of the swiftly approaching presidential election, and it will thrust a major player, Senate Judiciary Committee member Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), back into the spotlight after weeks of largely avoiding it.Allies and critics alike have noticed Harris’s unusual absence from the spotlight — particularly striking, given her role as Joe Biden’s (D) running mate. While she has lodged attacks at Trump, she has largely conducted herself in the same manner as Biden, remaining relatively publicly subdued and reserving her sharpest attacks for Twitter rather than during in-person campaign events, of which there have been few.

Pelosi seemingly believes that 2020 has given her license to violate all political norms. In the past two months, Pelosi has called federal law officers “stormtroopers,” violated the mask rule she insists upon for others, claimed that she was a victim of a hair salon “set up,” (snip) Her worst act ever, though, could be her siding with the mob with the lie that the Louisville police involved with Breonna Taylor’s death are murderers.
