Dems Unveil Plan to Pack the Supreme
Court but Republicans Can't Wait for
Them to Try

Original Article

Democrats have long teased the idea that they would pack the Supreme Court once former President Donald Trump had put three judges in place, but now that the prospect is becoming a reality, Republicans are actually daring Democrats to try it under the idea that once they do try, it’ll seal their fate in the midterms. According to Fox News, not only are Republicans very confident that they’ll stop the Democrats from accomplishing expanding the Supreme Court from nine seats to 13, but that the move will be unpopular enough to hand both the House and the Senate to them during the midterm elections. This has prompted some


Jerry Waddler (as one of his Dem colleagues once described him), Ed Markey and their pals were an unimpressive bunch yesterday when they laid out their grand design on the steps of the Supreme Court.

That a majority of people will vote for the Republican house or senate candidates may be true, but it will be Democrat sympathizers counting the votes so Republicans won't win in the end. That's what the country has come to.

The country already has tens of supreme court justices. Just look at all the district court judges who think they are on the supreme court and rule what the laws should be and how they should be intrepreted for the entire country.

Just like Guam; if you get too many justices in the Supreme Court building , it "will tip over and capsize". (Hank Johnson should have thought of that before he introduced the legislation ).🤪

Any story about the mid-term elections is irrelevant if the "republicans" don't put 100% of their efforts into securing an honest election in every state. If they don't up the penalty for voting fraud from a slap on the wrist to prison time, we are done. At this point paper ballots counted by the military reserve units is the only thing I would trust!

I am flabbergasted every time I hear someone say "wait until the next election" or "Republicans will win the House back", etc. Do you people not remember what just happened?! Are you so absorbed by the things of this world that you already forgot the last election was openly stolen and all the levers of justice sat idly by? There will be no more fair elections in this country--especially when HR1 gets passed. Why do you think it was the first major resolution pushed forward from this Congress? Because it will permanently lock in all of the Marxist's favorite cheating ploys/schemes and make it impossible for non-Marxists to ever win an election again. This is how evil works. Cheat, Win, Punish Enemies. Repeat. Goodnight America.

Yeah, I would bet the Moderate Democrats are not at all interested on having to vote for this Debacle. They want to keep their Seats and they know the folks who voted them in, will vote them out if they vote "Yes" to pack the Court. Not only that, you also can bet your House that the first Campaign Ads of the Season were cut yesterday at that News Conference with the Democrats TRYING to explain WHY packing the court was necessary. It's a winner for Republicans!

FTA: "This is why some Republicans are honestly excited about the prospect of Democrats attempting to pack the court. It’s only more ammo for them come midterms." Belief in the midterms as a turning point presupposes that the dems won in 2020 fair and square. The whole premise of the article is whistling through the graveyard. The communist/democrats appear to be the only ones playing for keeps in this country, whether in DC or in any large urban area.

Yes to all that #5 and 6 said about voting integrity. Note the fact we had a Presidential election stolen from the rightful winner means nothing to the Republican establishment. They didn’t want outsider Trump as President because he upset their financial apple cart. So, hey, they were for Biden no matter what it did to the USA. Our Republican Congressmen and Senators are really professional talkers. We cannot depend on but maybe two or three of them.

No one in the spotlight wants their name associated with this transparent attempt. Talk about overplaying their hand!!

A series of internal documents responding to a municipal internet censorship authority reveals that information related to the Chinese Military-Civil Fusion (MCF) strategy was removed from a local bureaus’ official websites in June 2018, only months after a trade war had broken out with the United States. The Epoch Times recently obtained documents from a trusted source issued by various departments in Anshan City of northern Liaoning province reveals the requirement to remove information about MCF on departments’ websites and from official accounts on social media platforms. However, the MCF strategy is a national-level strategy that the head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has emphasized.

President Joe Biden announced this week that he was pulling all remaining American troops out of Afghanistan by September 11 — and the media rushed to frame the decision positively. They are technically correct — it makes zero sense to continue to put American lives at risk and spend taxpayer dollars on a decades-long ‘war’ with no foreseeable end nor desire to ‘win’. But as you can guess, when former president Donald Trump announced he would withdraw troops from Afghanistan just last year, the media hysterically warned that he was emboldening the Taliban and making America less safe. ‘Trump administration to cut troop levels in Afghanistan despite Pentagon warnings,’ the Washington

Wars often arise from uncertainty. When strong powers appear weak, truly weaker ones take risks they otherwise would not. Sloppy braggadocio and serial promises of restraint alternatively trigger wars, too. Empty tough talk can needlessly egg on aggressors. But mouthing utopian bromides convinces bullies that their targets are too sophisticated to counter aggression.(Snip)Every new American president is usually tested to determine whether the United States can still protect friends like Japan, Europe, South Korea, Israel, and Taiwan. And will the new commander-in-chief deter America’s enemies Iran and North Korea—and keep China and Russia from absorbing their neighbors?

The White House Friday reversed course on refugee admissions, after an earlier announcement maintaining a controversial Trump-era refugee cap was met with disdain by Democrats and immigration activists. Following a day of blowback from Democrats, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced Biden would set a new, higher ceiling in May after initially saying it would keep the current 15,000 limit. The initial decision had led to widespread complaints from Democratic lawmakers and groups representing refugees, who had already been urging Biden to lift the ceiling put in place by former President Trump. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who came to the United States as a refugee, called it "shameful."

A group of Democrats on Thursday unveiled their bill to expand the Supreme Court, but party leaders showed little support and Republicans assailed the proposal as radical. The “Judiciary Act of 2021” would add four seats to the nation’s top court, effectively flipping the balance from 6–3 in favor of conservative-appointed justices to 7–6 in the opposite direction. The rationale fueling the proposal is that Republicans confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died last year. The GOP broke no rules or laws, but some Democrats were bitter that they did not hold the seat open for whoever won the 2020 election.

There was a prolonged ammunition shortage during the Obama administration. I got through that one because a Power Line reader lined me up with a dealer in West Virginia who seemed to have an endless supply of 9 mm. and .22LR rounds. Over the last year, another ammo shortage has struck, caused in part by an influx of new gun buyers who are responding to rising crime rates, attacks on law enforcement, and the election of Joe Biden. As with most shortages, it has been accentuated by hoarding: whenever a shooter saw boxes of a popular caliber on the shelves, he would buy them all. For quite a while
