Democrats: If We Can’t Have A Leftist Court, Then We’ll Make New Rules So That We Can

Have you ever played a game with someone who so hated to lose that they started changing the rules once it looked like they were going to lose the game?

Little kids do this all the time. If you’re winning, then, suddenly, it’s, “You can’t do that!”

So, I guess, this is just another example of how much anti-gunners are like spoiled little children.

What do I mean? Well, Democrats (who are, overwhelmingly, the anti-gun party) are scared that they are about to lose the left-leaning bias that the Supreme Court has shown during my entire lifetime (and I’m not a kid). So, because of their fear that an originalist, namely Amy Coney Barrett, probably will become the next Supreme Court justice, Democrats are threatening to change the laws about how long Supreme Court justices stay on the court (hat tip to here for the lead). Victor Morton writes,

Democrats plan to introduce a bill next week that would abolish life tenure for Supreme Court justices.

The bill would give each president the right to pick two justices per 4-year term and limit those choices to 18 years on the high court.

Reuters news agency first reported on the Supreme Court Term Limits and Regular Appointments Act, which progressive Democrats say they plan to introduce Tuesday.

“It would save the country a lot of agony and help lower the temperature over fights for the court that go to the fault lines of cultural issues and is one of the primary things tearing at our social fabric,” said Rep. Ro Khanna, California Democrat and a co-sponsor.

The other two House sponsors are Reps. Joseph P. Kennedy III of Massachusetts and Don Beyer of Virginia.The bill comes as Democrats are fuming over President Trump’s plan to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, solidifying a conservative majority on the court. This anger also has fueled demands that Democrats “pack” the court by expanding its size and adding their appointees.

Of course, the folks presenting the bill are presenting it as a way to “prevent suffering.” Never mind that it’s the supporters of these kinds of bills who are causing suffering in our country by rioting and demanding that other people conform to their will. While the people who support the Constitution (which puts justices on the Supreme Court for life precisely with the intent of preventing a political court) are the people whose attitude is, basically, do what you want if it doesn’t hurt anyone else, but leave me out of it and don’t try to make me pay for it.

But, as we know, leftists are anything but willing to be responsible for their own actions.

Fortunately, right now, we have a Republican-controlled Senate which should kill this idiotic bill, but it says a lot about the lengths that leftists will go to try to get their way at any cost.

  1. They will never take our guns. That’s our only means to defend against tyranny and from the look of things there’s going to be a revolution and it will be we the people throwing all these thieves and liars out of office and starting all over again

  2. Why do you think they want to get rid of the Constitution ( Rules as to how the people allow the government to run ) it worked for 200+ years and will work for 1000’S more …

  3. Dear leftist: You will not get your way and if you do the American people will act to destroy you since you are operating as a corrupt government directly acting against the American People. In simple terms…your ideals or lives will end. This is according to the Constitution of the United States.

  4. The United States bankruptcy court judges who are not even article 3 judges are appointed for fourteen years at a time with the possibility of being appointed to an additional term if they have exhibited the judicial temperament necessary for another term. The Supreme Court is so much higher in importance that any type of limitations should be after a much longer period of time.

  5. Keep in mind, that bill is meaningless set against the Constitution.

    The only way the tenure can be changed is via Constitutional amendment, and that takes a 66% vote of the states.

  6. They are just like little spoiled brats having a temper tantrum. From the Dem members of Congress all the way down to the pencil neck geek MFers making up Antifa & BLM, they are all the same & it is going to take a lot more than a swat on the butt to make them see the Light.
    Keep them clean, loaded & handy my friends & always remember what Thomas Jefferson said “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants.”.

  7. How can a bill from Congress and signed by the President establish a term limit on Supreme Court justices, and limit a President to two nominees per 4 yr. term? It can’t. The Constitution, itself., says the justices serve for life during good behavior, unless they choose to retire. A bill from Congress to the contrary, signed by the President, is automatically null and void, the Congress and the President to the contrary notwithstanding. It takes a Constitutional amendment, not an act of Congress signed by the President.

  8. Since they want to limit the time a Supreme Justice serves can we then have limits on how many terms the Congress and Senate serve? It is only Fair
