    Surge Summary: Justice Stephen Breyer – not one of the Supreme Court’s “conservatives” – has warned radical progressives to be careful about extreme moves to refashion the court. The late liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg had expressed similar concerns before her passing.

    With the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Justice Stephen Breyer (82) is now the oldest member of the Supreme Court.  And the left is mounting a full-court press to force him off the bench now while Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer can ram through his replacement.

    While Breyer is being coy about his future plans, he did not hesitate to blast the left for threatening to fundamentally transform the Supreme Court.  During a speech this week to Harvard Law students, Breyer warned that the left’s court packing schemes would undermine the court’s credibility, making it a political puppet of the ruling majority in Congress at any given time.

    “If the public sees judges as politicians in robes, its confidence in the courts and in the rule of law can only diminish, diminishing the court’s power, including its power to act as a check on other branches,” Breyer said.

    By the way, liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg was staunchly opposed to packing the court too.
