Senate Dems deliver stunning warning to Supreme Court: ‘Heal’ or face restructuring
Fox News ^ | 13 August 2019 | By Ronn Blitzer

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.

The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court's conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.

"The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it," the brief said. "Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be 'restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.'"

The last part was quoting language from a Quinnipiac University poll, in which 51 percent favored such restructuring. In the same poll, 55 percent believed the Supreme Court was "motivated by politics" more than by the law.

The Dems really want a civil war.
And they will certainly get one if they mess with the court. That sorry institution has lost most of its respect already, and if those vermin continue to take bodacious Obamas on it, we may as well get the war on with.

Get rid of the Liberals, the court would be better with folks that can read and follow the constitution. Maybe Roberts go now, too.

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

That’s a typo. It’s supposed to be “Heel”!

The Dems will never play fair. They never think the rules we play by should apply to them. When they lose elections they demand to still take all the power. The Democrats are becoming more and more authoritarian by the minute.

These pusillanimous leftists have used the correct word but misspelled it. Rather than “healing” under the ridiculous assumption that constitutional originalism is a disease, they mean “heeling,” as in surrender control to the zealots of leftist doctrine.
