Are the friendly media operating under omertà? Has Chuck Schumer made an offer that nobody can/should refuse? Will Supreme Court justices be sleeping with the fishes if they don’t fall into line? Liberty Nation explores the dark underworld of political mafiosos.
Acting as a political version of La Cosa Nostra, leftist politicians are trying to bully the government into doing their bidding. To influence an important Supreme Court decision on gun control, Democrats filed an amicus brief indicating they might vote to expand the size of the highest court in the land if justices do not dismiss the case.
Democrats Threaten Court Packing
While the full content of the amicus brief has not been revealed publicly, Liberty Nation managed to obtain the full text of the document. Oddly enough, the entire brief consisted of one piece of paper covered with letters cut from magazine clippings instead of actual writing.
The message read: “U better dizmiss this here case becuz we’ll totally pack the courts if u don’t!”
The case in question involves a New York City petition challenging a law that prohibits the transportation of handguns. The plaintiffs contend that such laws violate the Second Amendment.
A Democratic staffer speaking on condition of anonymity told Liberty Nation that gun control is such a critical issue that politicos are justified in going to certain lengths to prevent law-abiding citizens from owning firearms. “Some would say our tactics are underhanded, but we’re the ones trying to curb gun deaths. All we’re saying is that this is a really nice Supreme Court ya got here. It’d be a shame if something happened to it.”
The staffer, who told us to call him “Vincenzo,” explained that Dems plan to increase the number of Supreme Court justices to 128 if they manage to gain control of the Senate. If they succeed in digging up a candidate that will defeat Trump, the stage will be set for the nefarious plan. Vincenzo added, “We’re gonna strengthen Roe v. Wade and turn the Second Amendment into a distant memory, capiche?”
Luckily, the Republicans did not allow this thuggery to go unchallenged. They sent a letter which read: “Please don’t do that. Packing the courts is wrong, so we don’t like it. We’re still on for lunch tomorrow though, right?”
Trump Trumps the Democrats
But things aren’t turning out as intended.
In a stunning move of political savagery, President Trump has decided to flip the script. Far from objecting to the Democratic Party’s plan to pack the courts, he is adopting the strategy. Republican lawmakers have changed their tack and will begin pushing to expand the size of the Supreme Court so that Trump can pack it himself.
It seems the Democrats will regret giving him this idea.
Instead of increasing the number of justices to 128, the GOP, at the behest of the president, will expand the court to 2,479 justices. Trump issued a statement in which he explained, saying:
“The Democrats say they want 128 justices on the Supreme Court? That’s small potatoes. We’re gonna add more than 2,000 judges, and it’s gonna be the best Supreme Court ever, believe me. They’ll hear so many cases, so many cases, folks. And we’re gonna judge so many things.”
If Republicans manage to stumble their way into retaking the House and retaining the Senate, they will go beyond just increasing the number of justices. The party is drafting new legislation that would ensure future appointees to the Supreme Court will first have to graduate from the soon-to-be-established Trump Law School for Big League Lawyers and Judges, where students will learn a constitutional approach to the law, how to oppose activist judges, and the finer points of dealing with false sexual assault allegations.
It is not yet known whether or not the Republicans and Democrats can come to an agreement that would maintain the current state of the Supreme Court. But who cares? It’s 2019 for goodness’ sake. Isn’t it time for a change?
