Biden Says Americans ‘Don’t Deserve to Know’ Opinion on Court-Packing: Here It Is

Former Vice President of the United States Joe Biden speaking with attendees at the 2019 Iowa Federation of Labor Convention hosted by the AFL-CIO at the Prairie Meadows Hotel in Altoona, Iowa Gage Skidmore Flickr.

Democrat presidential nominee, Joe Biden has become known for flipping his stance on important issues in an attempt to sway votes in his favor. Biden has previously vowed to ban fracking his first day in the office then famously said he does not plan to ban the practice at all. Keeping up with where the Biden camp stands is dizzying as they continue to flip flop on the issues. As Senate Judiciary Committee hearings begin to confirm President Trump’s nominee, Amy Coney Barrett to the vacant seat left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg both Biden and vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris have been repeatedly questioned on their stance on the subject of “court-packing.” Both have recently dodged the questions however in 1983 Joe Biden was more vocal calling it a “bonehead idea.”

According to reports from Fox News:

Biden, then a U.S. Senator from Delaware, made the comments during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in July 1983 regarding nominations to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. At the time, Republican President Ronald Reagan had stoked controversy for attempting to replace three members of the commission.

Biden argued at the time that, although it was within the president’s right to do so, it risked damaging the credibility of the commission. He compared it to President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s unsuccessful attempts in 1937 to expand the Supreme Court by six justices – in other words, pack the court.

“President Roosevelt clearly had the right to send to the United States Senate and the United States Congress a proposal to pack the court. It was totally within his right to do that. He violated no law. He was legalistically, absolutely correct,” Biden, then 40, told the committee. “But it was a bonehead idea. It was a terrible, terrible mistake to make. And it put in question, if for an entire decade, the independence of the most-significant body … in this country, the Supreme Court of the United States of America.”

Biden’s stance in the ’80s offered a much clearer picture as opposed to the candidate’s “vote for me and see” approach he is attempting now regarding the subject. As reporters continue to ask his opinion Biden simply believes American voters don’t deserve to know his stance unless they vote for him. At a campaign stop in Phoenix, Arizona Biden said the country would “know my position on court-packing when the election is over.”

Okay Joe! Then no votes for you is appropriate. Full disclosure is beyond your capabilities. And anyone who runs for office should never ever say what you just said. And you proved to me the DNC is an insane asylum and you are one of the leading lunatics!

He’s a Democrat Domestic Terrorist so you know that he is lying whenever his lips are moving. Like all Leninist/Communists he will do and say whatever he needs to get elected and carry out the anti-American plan of his poor, working class, billionaire handlers. That is all you need to know about him and the DDT party.

Biden’s stance on packing the court reminds me of Pelosi’s stance on Obamacare. Pelosi was told Congressional members to vote for Obamacare and read it later. Biden is telling the American voter to vote for him and see if he’s going to pack the Supreme Court by adding 6 more justices and ruin our check and balance government. There will be no Legeslative, Executive and Judicial government it will be a dictatorship controlled by the Democrat party. A MY WAY OR THE HIGHWAY GOVERNMENT. The American public doesn’t DESERVE to know what is in store for them under the Biden-Harris Administration or is it that Biden really doesn’t know what he’s going to be told to do under the Harris-Biden Administration as he’s just the head of the snake and Harris is the controlling body.

Both Joe and Kamela are the gift that just keeps “giving”. Joe is 2 quarts low in the brain departments and Kamela is a combination of the charm of Schumer and the brains of Pelosi. A match made in heaven. We could name the pair “Dumb and Dumber”.

The Dems and Libs, are loudly posturing for the “fake” new media re the ‘Pack the Court’ issue as well as any other issue they can drum up. As they have done for four years, already, it is all simply just more of the same sad whining and crying at the 2016 Election, Trump won, Hillary lost, they have as their only position to place in front of We The People. Their own Obama said it best, “Elections have consequences, I won, Just get over it”. All that is happening now in the political arena, serves Dems’ purposes quite well as they want to still defeat Trump, run him out of office, impeach him, distract him from doing his job, etc., to infinity. The consequences to them of Barrett being confirmed to the vacant SCOTUS, fill Dems with extreme trepidation. First and foremost, it will give Trump a “win”. Dems are now and will be apoplectic at that specific Trump success. Somehow, tho Trump is doing his job, nominating Ms Barrett to the SCOTUS seat, Dems want him to NOT DO HIS JOB. He was elected for four years, by We The People. When I worked an eight hour day, a forty hour week, I was expected to WORK eight hours, not seven or seven and a half hours. Forty hours meant forty hours of work, not thirty-five hours. A Trump success here, will be seen as a deep personal defeat by Nancy Pelosi, the proverbial icing on the cake of her wasted four years of a do-nothing agenda of only hating Donald Trump. A failure here will undoubtedly lose much of Dems’ voters, seriously jeopardizing Biden’s already weak campaign. Barrett’s confirmation will render SCOTUS, then, with a 6-3 Conservative majority. This, too, is another of the Dems’ worst nightmares, potentially limiting Liberals’ pet agendas, for decades. With a Trump win in 2020, the Senate maintaining or increasing its Republican majority, and, possibly, Republicans retaking the House, it could be the harbinger forecasting the demise of the Democratic Party. Sad, ironic, but deserved, and it is their own doing, with their four years of only, ONLY, their hate Trump and everything that is Trump, agenda.

The fact that Biden refuses to answer certain questions, tells me he is planning just that. He knows or suspects that public won’t agree with him and that could hurt his chances of becoming President. The thing is, no one is coming out in support of him, other than the mainstream media and he constantly lies about everything. His latest one on going to a black Catholic church while growing up. That’s a HUGE lie, as I know the area and have tons of friends who live in and around Scranton still, my friends are Catholic and went to Catholic school there. They were the ones who taught me to ski. I nor do they remember a black Catholic church anywhere in the area. There aren’t a lot of blacks there either. It’s a huge blue-collar area in northeast Pennsylvania and the smaller towns like Dunmore, Green Ridge, Taylor and Morgan Manor and Lackawanna County. These are people who work with their hands. I’d say there’s about 20% or less of blacks living in the area, it’s a mostly white area, not too many Orientals either, it’s probably less than 5%. It’s a beautiful area in the fall and winter, but its cold and the leaves start turning in late July and early August, that’s when the temperature start changing at night. I learned to love skiing and my favorite trails were at Montage Mountain Resort and spent many weekends up there skiing and snowtubing with my friends. It was so much fun. One winter they got snow in April and hit a record on how many inches of snow fell during the season, 120 inches fell. Anyway, Biden is once again pandering to the minorities. And lying his sorry butt off AGAIN. People aren’t buying it and started questioning his claims but anyone in the area knows that there aren’t a lot of black people there and never saw one black person skiing the hundreds of times I went there. Many times, the temperature dropped to minus 15 degrees at night in the winter. We’re end up going to bars and playing pool on those nights. It was too freaking cold to go night skiing.

Why has Joe Biden’s attempted rape been hushed up? Only in Australia has ir been aired. Like Bill Clinton, and Obama, the News Media is suppressing this in order to help Biden win election. They refuse to clearly show his flip flopping on the issues, or his disrespect for women and the voters of this country. He does not love God, Country, or you. He only loves himself. A vote for his is a vote for Socialism, and eventually the return to slavery.
