Rep. Jerry Nadler punched back at Republicans proposing to confirm a
new Supreme Court justice before the next term by suggesting Democrats
add seats to the bench if they win control of the Senate in November.

“If Sen. McConnell and @SenateGOP were to force through a nominee
during the lame duck session—before a new Senate and President can take
office—then the incoming Senate should immediately move to expand the
Supreme Court,” Nadler wrote on Twitter.

“Filling the SCOTUS vacancy during a lame duck session, after the
American people have voted for new leadership, is undemocratic and a
clear violation of the public trust in elected officials. Congress
would have to act and expanding the court would be the right place to
start,” the New York Democrat continued.

Cut!

Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said "nothing is off the table" if
Republicans move forward with confirming a justice immediately.

“Let me be clear: if Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans move
forward with this, then nothing is off the table for next year. Nothing
is off the table," he said on a caucus call with Senate Democrats
Saturday, a source on the call told Fox News. He added that
"Everything Americans value is at stake."

It's called "packing the court". They would only attempt it if Biden
is president because he would be the one to select the left wing
nominees. The last time this was tried was under FDR. Fortunately he
failed. I see Pelosi is also proposing another impeachment to somehow
prevent Trump from appointing a nominee to replace Ginsburg.
Predictable desperation. Socialism is just around the corner. We are
witnessing the collapse of the American experiment in democracy.

I really expect Trump to win and the republicans to take control of the
house because of the cancel culture, and the violent protests.

Maybe then the republicans should pack the court, and make sure the
democrats never have the majority again.

Packing the court, no matter who does it, is a very bad idea.

Maybe the Supreme Court was a bad idea, or how the judges are chosen
for it.

Something needs to change. Perhaps the president shouldn't be the one
to nominate a replacement. Maybe there should be a national election
when one of the justices dies.

A judge should not be biased towards a political party, their decisions
should be based on the Constitution and existing law. It's easy to see
by the 5/4 decisions they are not.

Our founding fathers were geniuses, and the Supreme Court was a great
idea. Packing it is a terrible idea, no matter who does it. It has
nine members to prevent a tie vote. Suppose Democrats kick it up to
15. First chance they get Republicans will respond with 19 or 21. Then
what? 25? As for electing SC members, I don't think we need justices
worrying about the next election every time they decide a case. We
elect the president and congress. That's enough.

What we are going to witness is the collapse of everything the liberals
have accomplished, and they will do anything to prevent that from
happening.

Really? I don't think so, although I agree that they will do anything
to prevent Trump's nominee from getting on the court -- including some
asinine scheme to pack the court -- if Biden is elected. As for the
collapse of everything they have accomplished -- what would that be? A
conservative leaning court might prevent some of what they would like
to accomplish -- like a virtual repeal of the First and Second
Amendments, federal control of most, or all, aspects of the healthcare
system and the economic system in general, and a massive
redistribution (or destruction) of privately held wealth. Couldn't
happen? The Millenials and those of a similar age are enchanted with
socialism. Wait and see what happens when they get a bit older and
inherit the reins of power.

The crazy liberals have ruined justice in this country. Suppose you
are a Trump support on trial, and the jury is made up of crazy liberals?

What about Michael Flynn and the crazy liberal judge Sullivan? The DOJ
has dropped the charges against Flynn, but Sullivan won't dismiss the
case, because he claims Trump pressured the DOJ into dropping the
charges.

There is no way liberals could make the same charges while looting
buildings and then burning them.

Conservatives allow the justice system to work, liberals don't, and if
the don't agree with the verdict, there is more looting and burning.

That is crazy. Conservatives are not crazy.
