How the Democrats Could Thwart Trumpís Supreme Court Takeover (These people are pure pond scum)
the Daily Beast ^ | 5/11/2018 | DAVID FARIS

Posted on 05/12/2018 6:27:19 PM PDT by Beave Meister

When it comes to filling vacancies on the Supreme Court and lower courts, the Democrats have played nice for far too long.

If you’re a Democratic partisan, the name Merrick Garland probably still makes your blood boil. And it should. As the Supreme Court prepares to issue verdict after verdict that will further entrench conservative power in the United States, the far-reaching effects of Mitch McConnell’s darkly clever Garland hold-up will only become more shocking and problematic. The most galling fact is this: in any sane political system, conservatives would be in the minority, both on the Supreme Court and in the rest of the federal judiciary. And the next time they are in power, Democrats must rectify this injustice by adding seats to the Supreme Court and radically enlarging the federal judiciary, filling those slots with the most outrageous liberals they can find.

Why? The Democratic candidate has won a popular vote majority in six of the last seven presidential elections. Over that same time period, Democrats have secured 30 million more votes for the U.S. Senate than their Republican counterparts. In 2016 alone, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes, and Democratic candidates received 11 million more votes for the Senate. The record here is clear: Over the past 26 years, the American people have voted, over and over again, to give Democrats the authority to staff the federal judiciary with living constitutionalists, and instead what they have received is a Supreme Court that remains in the death grip of a radical, conservative majority and lower courts that have flipped back and forth between Democratic and Republican appointees. Here, as in so many other ways, American democracy has misfired by hewing to institutions and procedures cooked up over candlelight a hundred years before....

I saw this on James Woods Twitter feed. He said, "Wherein a truly dangerous plan to destroy the Constitution is laid out in full. These are the traitors we are facing. Know them. Understand their thought process. Read this to understand why we are a representative republic and not a mob rule democracy. Thank God the Founding Fathers devised three branches of government, a system of checks and balances and, most importantly, the electoral college."

I've been saying that the end game was the Federal courts and particularly the Supreme Court.

Note how all the little Federal judge-presidents have been over-ruling the ACTUAL President.

If Felonia von Pantsuit had won, this would be going on under the radar, but now that Trump is in power, they've had to show their hand.

The plan was to have 6 black-robed klowns on the Supreme Court telling us all when to breathe in, and when to breathe out.

The Democratic candidate has won a popular vote majority

Only if you count the millions of illegal alien votes in California and New York.

FDR tried it. Even he, elected 4 times, could not get the people to go for it.

It guaranteed to piss off voters so please DO run on this nonsense Dems.

Voters understand the system of checks and balances works and needs no radical revision.

In the second paragraph, the author states that is a “fact’ that in any sane political system conservatives would
be of a Vanishing minority.

Really, what better indication could there be of the author’s sheer self-delusion? First of all, calling such a thought a fact is completely idiotic. It is an opinion. It happens to be quite a goofball opinion. No sane system of argumentation would call such an opinion a fact. This alone disqualifies the author from any sort of consideration.

Classic proglib thought process.

Not winning? Cheat.

To hell with what the American Citizens voted for...

There is a screaming need to reopen the mental institutions and eliminate the Department of "education."

I also believe if we were to change to the majority vote to win elections, many many more Conservatives in states like California, New York, Illinois etc. would come out of the wood work to vote and destroy liberals once again.

And if it comes to that, they will destroy liberals corporeally.

It doesn’t matter if you win California and New York each by 100,000 votes or by 10 million votes.

Since Republicans know they’re going to lose those states, they don’t put much effort in contesting them. Why bother? It would be a waste of time and resources. They could campaign there. They could narrow the margin, but 2nd place is 2nd place in our winner take all system so that would be time and effort down the drain for nothing.

That’s why the Democrats boasting they got more popular votes is irrelevant. Its like the losing side in a football game saying “but we got more total yards”. Who gives a crap?

Only Thomas and Alito would be considered conservative on the SC. The jury wil be out for a while on Gorsuch.

Every liberal is a violent totalitarian thug.

Democrats no longer support freedom, democracy or the law. They will do anything to win and violently oppress any opposing view if they get the chance.

Even stupider is his contrivance that his weird constitutional amendment would ever pass...

If got paid by the word for this article, I’ll give him credit for being smart enough to insert enough words to get a bonus...

“The Democratic candidate STOLE a popular vote majority in the last six of seven presidential elections” due to illegal aliens voting and massive voter fraud during the early voting and election day voting.

We can calm the Democrats down by giving them more autonomy over the cities. Let them raise taxes and regulations as much as they want as long as it is within city limits where most Democrats live. Let them do their utopian urban planning experiments in exchange for leaving the rest of us alone.

Really they are not in any kind of bargaining position. With an assist from the mostly conservative military we could easily blockade their water, food deliveries, electricity, internet, cell phones, then hand them a pen to sign their unconditional surrender document.

It’s like a losing World Series baseball team saying “But we won two games, one 10-2 and the other 11-3. The other team won four games 9-8, 7-5, 11-10 and 5-4! We had more runs in the series!”
