Biden’s SCOTUS Reform Panel Advises Against Court Packing

The group tasked with looking into the possible advantages and disadvantages of expanding the Supreme Court is advising against it. President Biden appointed a panel to study potential “reforms” to the Supreme Court at the beginning of his presidency. So far, the panel noted the potential to undermine the high court’s legitimacy in its initial report.

The Hill reports:

“The risks of Court expansion are considerable, including that it could undermine the very goal of some of its proponents of restoring the Court’s legitimacy. Recent polls suggest that a majority of the public does not support Court expansion,” a draft document released by the White House on Thursday states. “And as even some supporters of Court expansion acknowledged during the Commission’s public hearings, the reform—at least if it were done in the near term and all at once—would be perceived by many as a partisan maneuver.”

The debate over reform comes amid a recent dropoff in the 6-3 conservative majority court’s approval rating and at the start of a blockbuster term in which the justices will hear a direct challenge to the landmark 1973 decision ruling in Roe v. Wade and a gun rights case that could result in the expansion of the Second Amendment.

The group noted the idea of expanding the bench could open a can of worms difficult to come back from.

“We have not sought to determine whether any particular perspective on the confirmation process or on the Court’s composition today is ‘correct,’” the document states. “But the more important point is that different segments of the public and the legal and academic communities understand the determinants and likely consequences of the Court’s current composition differently, and any lawmaker contemplating Supreme Court reform should be aware that the pursuit of immediate Court expansion would involve taking a position in a partisan contest in which opinion is deeply divided.”

The loonies think packing the court would be a partison move?
Well,since they lost their grip on the supreme court all they’ve done is cry, because they can’t count on liberal judges to rubber stamp all their twisted policies!

They have been blackmailing Roberts for years! Roberts name was on the Espstein flight logs. My guess is Roberts is a pedophile and they have him on video tape.

Biden’s Executive Order on the commission dealing with the Supreme Court is a clear violation of the Constitution’s Check and Balance System. Nowhere in the US Constitution does it grant the Executive Branch of government the power to examine, oversee, or explore changes to the Judicial Branch of government. The Constitution clearly states that ONLY the Legislative Branch has power to oversee the Judicial Branch. The President has abused his power with his commission to examine another “separate” branch of government.

Am I to understand that a President can deny an order from the supreme court to keep the rule that “remain in Mexico” for migrants seeking entry to our country? So with all this, what is the court supposed to be? The border is invaded daily.

Friday’s news indicates that Biden is (reluctantly) planning to re-institute Trump’s stay in Mexico policy. Could it be that public opinion will force him to return to more of Trump’s accomplishments that he willy-nilly vacated.

Technically he could be held in contempt of the Supreme Court. Which could allow impeachment proceedings under high crimes and misdemeanors even if contempt of court isn’t viewed as a felony it could hold jail time as part of sentence. Noting a sitting president has never been taken to court it would probably await sentencing until out of office however.

I’m not sure what you mean by ” Republican Court will continue to decide that corporations and religion, and not the government” We want corporations to run their business without government interference. As for religion we want to practices our faith without government interference as well. As for abortion the federal government should stay out of the abortion issue leave it up to the state.

We have seen what unfettered corporations have done in the area of free speech. The government has passed various laws that have basically allowed Facebook, Twitter, Google, the various media companies, and others to muzzle our free speech. Then folks say, well it is just a private company, not the government, so the First Amendment does not apply. The government granted these evil corporations licenses to operate, and release of liabilities for anything posted on their platforms. With those, our freedoms have been restricted. No government nor private company should be able to censor our free speech. However, the fix is relatively simple. Don’t use Facebook, Twitter, Tic-Tock, and other such. Don’t watch the horribly biased “mainstream media”. Don’t buy the lies that they push nor the products that push them. We don’t need them, they need us. CUT THEM OFF.

The left’s argument with the court now is that they follow the constitution. We see from all of Biden’s ëxecutive orders”(Fatwah’s as Joe’s favorite governments – Iran and the Taliban – call them) that Joe and the left just does not like our constitution. Perhaps they should take a couple of states that don’t care about the constitution – say New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Connecticut – and form their own “woke” country. Then let’s see how long it is before they come crying for help because they have screwed it up beyond repair.
