    Senate Dems deliver stunning warning to Supreme Court: ‘Heal’ or face restructuring

    Senate Dems deliver stunning warning to Supreme Court: ‘Heal’ or face restructuring | Fox News



    Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental restructuring if justices do not take steps to "heal" the court in the near future.
    Radicals ought to be ashamed of themselves as this is absolutely radical behavior over losing an election. Radical liberalism gone crazy

    The court wouldn't be the way it is today if Mitch McConnell did not hold a seat hostage to give it to a conservative judge that was not appointed by Obama.
    So, you know what, you can take your "radical liberalism gone crazy" and be off with your bad self.

    Give me a fricken break, that is nothing more than a bull**** argument that doesn't address the real issue of Democrats wanted judicial activists on the Court. The 9 Justices worked quite well the decades when the Democrats controlled the House and the Congress. When are you going to realize that liberalism is a disease and not the foundation upon which this country was built?

    Reminds me of FDR's threats to pack the court in order to prevent them from striking down parts of his fascist new deal. It's the same with all this talk about abolishing the electoral college. When the left can't win by the rules the solution is always to change the rules rather than concede that their ideas are just terrible.

    When someone is that partisan, it's a cover for something.

    No judge Obama wanted would have passed through the senate, even you should have known that. The fact that McConnell would not even bring it
    up in the senate merely saved a good deal of wasted time.

    If the court is just going to be used as an arm of the GOP, a tool to keep power because they cannot win majorities anymore, then it will need reform. It must reflect the spirit of the constitution and one would hope the values of the majority, not the vote-suppressing, power-grabbing influence of old, rich, white oligarchs.

    Or one could just download and read the actual BRIEF and dispense with Fox News' coverage.

    PDF link

    The rationale for this long-settled principle issimple: this Court is not a legislature. Obergefell v.Hodges, 135 S. Ct. 2584, 2611 (2015) (Roberts, C.J.,dissenting).
    It can be tempting for judges to confuse[their] own preferences with the requirements of thelaw, id. at 2612, and to legislate political outcomesfrom the bench.
    But a judge is not a knight-errant,roaming at will in pursuit of his own ideal of beautyor of goodness. Benjamin N. Cardozo, The Nature ofthe Judicial Process 141 (Yale Univ. Press 1921).Accordingly, justiciability doctrines, such as standingand mootness, have evolved to serve as an apoliticallimitation on judicial power, confining the courts totheir constitutionally prescribed lane.
    John G.Roberts, Jr., Article III Limits on Statutory Standing,42 Duke L.J. 1219, 1230 (1993).
    In short, courts donot undertake political projects. Or at least theyshould not.

    So was the Court the arm of the Democratic Party when it was predominately run by Democrat appointed Justices?

    Upholding The Constitution is the court's soul purpose. It doesn't exist to do as the majority wishes.
