When They Can’t Win-Leftists Move the Goalposts

This has been a great year for Supreme Court decisions. Bruen was my favorite, personally. Your mileage may vary.

Democrats and other leftists, however, aren’t so happy, and they want to change the Court to make sure the Constitution doesn’t win the next round:

When spoiled toddlers lose a game, they often try to change the rules or otherwise throw a tantrum. That’s how former President Donald Trump handled losing the 2020 election. And it’s evidently how top progressive members of Congress — who endlessly criticize Trump — are handling a slew of recent defeats at the Supreme Court .

The conservative-majority Supreme Court recently ruled against racial discrimination in college admissions, against President Joe Biden’s attempt to twist the law to spend $430 billion on a student loan bailout against Congress’s wishes, and against LGBT activists in a free speech case.

Progressive Democrats are not taking these decisions well. Indeed, they’re responding by effectively calling to destroy the Supreme Court as we know it. “The Supreme Court is corrupt and continues to fail the people of this country,” far-Left Congresswoman Cori Bush (D-MO) tweeted. “Expand the court.”

“With this Court demonstrating time & again its contempt for the people, every option must be on the table … expand the Court … Our lives & our democracy depend on it,” Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) added.

That scraping sound you hear is the sound of goalposts moving.

Leftist’s modus operandi, of course, is to do just this; when they can’t win, they cheat. Oh, they try to frame it in different language; instead of “packing” the court, they accuse the Right of that (and, of course, carrying out the Constitutionally defined process for consenting and approving a nominee for the Court to fill an existing vacancy is not “packing”) and insist instead that their attempts to add new members is “unpacking” the Court.

That’s laughable.

Democrats in the Senate, though, are emboldened by the implementation of the Reid Rule – a simple majority now being all that is required for judicial appointments. So far President Biden(‘s handlers) have not been sanguine about the idea of packing the Court, and that may be the only thing holding back the destruction of the judicial norms, as Chuck Schumer has long been in favor of doing just that; yes, that’s right, it has come to that, where Joe Biden is the main figure standing between us and the ruin of the Supreme Court.

We live in interesting times, friends. Interesting times indeed.
