• Bernie Sanders’ Clever Plan to Reshape the Court to His Unconstitutional Ways

    Here’s something from the “not-much-of-a-surprise” file:

    Block During the second Democratic primary debate Thursday night, Senator Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) raised the possibility of rotating justices off of the Supreme Court so that they could be replaced with jurists whose philosophy aligns more closely with his own …  arguing … that the number of justices should remain the same but the composition of the court should change. Block (Jack Crowe/National Review)

    “I do not believe in packing the court,” Sanders said.

    That last part, a break out of decency and common sense? Well, that’s a relief. Oh, wait …

    Block “We’ve got a terrible 5-4 majority conservative court right now. But I do believe constitutionally we have the power to rotate judges to other courts and that brings in new blood into the Supreme Court” …Top of Form

    Bottom of Form

    The Constitution holds that Supreme Court justices may retain their seat on the court “during good behavior,” which has been widely understood as an effective life term. … block

    The Vermont Senator and Democrat Presidential Candidate’s pledge comes amidst recent Republican legislative and executive pushback against the Progressive agenda (“abortion rights”, moves toward censorship, racialist and identity policies, and assorted other anti-constitutional actions.)

    Block Sanders’ comments come after President Trump vowed to appoint a third justice to the court if another vacancy opens before the 2020 election.

    “We have the Senate. We have a great Senate,” Trump told the Hill. “We have great people. If we could get him approved, I would definitely do it. … If there were three days left [before the 2020 election], I’d put somebody up hoping that I could get ’em done in three days, OK?” block

    No wonder Sanders and his big-government cohorts are frantic.

    You gotta admire the indefatigable and serpentine ingenuity of the Left. If they win elections, they run with it. If they lose them, they try to harness government regulations to have their way. Absent that? There’s always the courts to manipulate toward their statist ends. If nothing else, they are resolute and resourceful.

    The Left can’t be trusted with power of any kind.

    Doubt that? I give you, Bernie Sanders.
