Any 9th grade education should tell you that there are three branches of government. Normally thought that the Judicial is the weaker of the three. But you would know that.
What is happening now that Supreme Court packing is on the docket of the Left is a bit of a controversy for Biden. He won’t tell us whether he would pack the court or not but instead insists we go out and vote. Then he added that his decision may be released at some point though it would depend on what the Republicans do.
He added to that promising something before election day. Who knows what it is? But then he updated it in an interview. Now he says he would assemble a panel of bipartisan “scholars” and give them 180 days to come up with a reform package. (6 months) If you think that is cover for packing the Court, you are right.
However, if you have three branches with a separation of powers, then restructuring and modifying courts is essentially Congress and the president running roughshod over the Judicial branch. Actually that would be usurping or overstepping the Judicial branch’s powers. But of course Democrats will rationalize it six ways to Sunday.
Supreme Court Packing may be just a part of the whole package. Now if you thought of Biden as a moderate, well that ‘middle of the road’ Joe just isn’t so.
Couple that with the rest of Biden’s other plans. As he politicized COVID_19, Biden is also dreaming of all kinds of government expansion that would rival or even dwarf FDR. Don’t just take my word for it but Biden’s own in an article from New York Mag:
While it’s impossible to tell where the country is headed, Biden’s camp is in the disorienting position of scaling up its laundry list of proposals to match the ambition, and the political appetite, he thinks the American people — desperate for relief — will have in January.
“I think people are realizing, ‘My Lord, look at what is possible,’ looking at the institutional changes we can make, without us becoming a ‘socialist country’ or any of that malarkey.”
So Biden is planning on busting a move on big government. And as the article suggests, it may be flying under the radar. All conceived from his basement bunker. Move over FDR, there is a new central planner in town. Supreme packing is only the beginning.
