‘Expand the Court’: Democrats, the Left Lose Their Minds Over Barrett’s Confirmation
Kamala Harris believes the Republicans have “just done great harm to the American people” by confirming Barrett.
Remember, the left swore they would burn it all to the ground if President Donald Trump even thought about replacing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Please be careful out there tonight, as "the entire fucking thing" is apparently going to be burned down. https://t.co/Ydbv0s4rek

But now we have Justice Amy Coney Barrett!
Let’s kick things off with failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY https://t.co/Csj65IphwZ

Remember when they accused Trump of court-packing? Well, now they want to expand the court. Someone inform these poor ignorant souls that expanding the court is court-packing.
Oh, wait. It’s okay if they do it.
Expand the court.

Abolish the filibuster. Expand the court. Abolish the Electoral College.

We are going to take back the White House & Senate next week with a resounding mandate from the people to fight back against Trump’s illegitimately stacked judiciary. We must expand the Court if we’re serious about the transformational change the people are crying out for.

How about some more thoughts from those who want to twist words and meanings to fit their agenda because Orange Man Bad?
How jarring to hear Amy Coney Barrett discuss her "rigorous confirmation process," given the lightning-fast one month from nomination to confirmation that Senate Republicans pushed through in order to make sure she was confirmed just days before the election.

Look, you may not agree with Amy Coney Barrett’s extreme views, but at least she’s also unqualified

Every single second that Justice Barrett stands next to Donald Trump beaming as part of a Trump political spectacle is an additional argument that she should absolutely recuse herself from any Supreme Court case involving the presidential campaign.

Today Republicans denied the will of the American people by confirming a Supreme Court justice through an illegitimate process—all in their effort to gut the Affordable Care Act and strip health care from millions with pre-existing conditions.
We won’t forget this.

I'm literally crying about the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation while on a Zoom training call for a Biden phonebank marathon. ? This is what our democracy has dwindled down to.

If you want to know how my evening is going I just accidentally ate a chocolate cookie covered in ants as I sat absent-mindlessly spinning out about all the ways Barrett could help steal the election

My Senate Republican colleagues have just done great harm to the American people by confirming Judge Barrett to the United States Supreme Court. There is no question about that.
— Vice President Kamala Harris (@VP) October 27, 2020
President Trump and Senate Republicans have committed an act of supreme desperation: jamming through a Supreme Court nominee just eight days before Election Day as part of their years-long campaign to destroy Americans’ health care.

Please don't forget to blame Susan Sarandon!!
I just want to remind you that Susan Sarandon convinced young leftists to vote against Hillary.
This is how we got the dead eyed woman, Amy Coney Barrett, Kavanaugh, and Gorsuch.

Is the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett a setback? Yes. Is it determinative of the future of millions of people? Frankly, no. I think this reminds us that apathy is not an option, that corruption requires resistance, that our rights must be fought for and never assumed.

Amy Coney Barrett will do all she can to keep Trump in power–if given the chance. Let's not give her or the other GOPers on the court that chance. VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!!
If we win BIG they can NOT Steal the Election!!

They are openly telling us what they are planning to do.
Will Republicans grow a pair and do what needs to be done to prevent it?
There have been changes in the GOP after Trump, but I still have no faith in them growing a pair. Let’s hope Trump can make them.
“They are openly telling us what they are planning to do.
Will Republicans grow a pair and do what needs to be done to prevent it?”
Muslims also openly tell us what they plan to do. And are doing it in places when they’ve gotten increasing percentages.
And the West does nothing for fear of “Islamophobia” accusations.
Will the beheading of a teacher for being a teacher finally awaken France, and others, into action?
The left, of the Democrat kind, of the Muslim kind, intend to do us great harm.
A good place to start with the Muslim problem would be to do the functional equivalent of female circumcision on all Muslim males, and brand their foreheads with STUB. If it is good for Muslim women, then it should also be good for the men.
The GOP, the Invertebrate Party.
The only way for that to happen is for the electorate to pull their heads out and start voting for the Constitution and not just for a savior politician. They have to throw out the old heads who have a much too expansive view of that document and vote in people who will begin restricting the power of the national gov’t (make it federal) again.
Until then it won’t matter if some Republicans grow a pair. They’ll be outvoted by those placed in power by lazy citizens – of whichever party – who would rather be comfortable than free.
Well as the boy who would be king said and I quote, ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES!!!
Prevent it? Hell, if we keep the Senate and WH and pick up the House, Trump should propose that the SCOTUS should be expanded to 15 life tenured seats and then name the 6 new ones off of his expanded list–provided they are all 40 years old and conservative!
As obongo used to say, “Elections have consequences”.
Part two is next week
Part Three will be the longest, the ensuing 48 months
Sounds like a “dark winter “ to me.
“Kamala Harris believes”
Confirmation that Barrett was the right choice.
Expand the Court!
Add five more Trump Judges.
People making these statements are not the adults in the room. They are selfish children who demand that they get their way and, if they don’t, then they demand they change the rules when they are in charge to create a situation where they will never lose again. This is the result of growing up in a participation trophy, identity politics world where everyone is a victim of microaggressions. Simply because they cannot get their spoiled expectations and that they are not as successful as they would like is no reason to destroy the country in a temper tantrum. These responses tell me that far too many parents failed their children by not bringing them up to be responsible adults.
No, this has little to do with participation trophy malarkey. This has to do with a will to power. They will twist and misconstrue the Constitution, the law, and the processes of our Republic to achieve and maintain that power.
They sound like children throwing a tantrum because Trump is the first real opposition in office they’ve faced since Reagan. They thought they had this technocracy thing all locked up.
the nomination, consent and confirmation of ACB has done great harm to the progressive movement
Thanks Donald, Mitch and Lindsay
As well as checkmating C J Roberts,he is now relegated to WGAF.

If you can’t see the tyranny inherent in using the courts as a super-constitutional hammer to obtain the policy preferences of the progressives, then you probably shouldn’t even be voting.
With the left committing and inciting violence all over the country, don’t be surprised if these people intimidate enough Dems to go along with them out of fear. If law enforcement stands down, the left will run wild while the cops only manage the law abiding.
Screw them. If repubs take the house and keep the senate then let’s make democrats our slaves. Then we require they all pay their own bills, have jobs pay their own damn health insurance.
And boot all dem leadership out of our country.
These Dems–including Rashida Talieb–are mourning like women at an Arab funeral. Enough with the ululuations.
True, but I find the tears quite tasty.
The word “steal” is apparently a synonym for “anything that gets in the way of a Democrat victory”. Reversing the odious PA SC decision is thus “stealing” even though that would merely affirm PA election law.
Can Kamala Harris explain what made the confirmation process illegitimate? Fully within the power constitutionally afforded the President and the Senate.
She can tell me why she believes they should not have exercised that power and I will listen, provided she explains what circumstances would exist that would stop her party from doing the same if they had the power.
She can’t do that because we all know they would absolutely do it.
Most of this is just theater. Harris, for example, knows perfectly well that President Trump and the Senate, have done nothing wrong in nominating and confirming a great judge.
But the rubes – I mean the base – want blood, and the party wants donations to keep coming in and they want people to turn out to vote. So they play pretend to be outraged. Continuously.
Whether or not they plan to pack the court (they do) is unrelated to any current events. It’s just convenient to mention right now, in the never ending quest for an agenda more substantive than, “I wanna.”
I love the smell of progressive tears in the morning.
Get out and vote, patriots, we have to put these commie loons back in their box.
If you watch or listen to various speeches by Democrats yesterday, since everyone knew what the result was going to be they resorted to character assassination.
What would the Dems be without their scripted talking points?
Since part of what they require depends on us ( constitutional change) This could be generations before anything is done. Put the left-wingers back on their meds and move on

Not sure he is wrong.
If the GOP holds the Senate and White House, President Trump could afford to make a gracious, bipartisan gesture of expanding the court, since all leading Democrats have suggested it. He’d fill SCOTUS with people of his choice, of course.
Right on! The Dems and the NY Times would suddenly discover that history and the constitution mandates the magic number of nine!
The constitution doesn’t require it. All it takes to change it is a majority in both houses, and the president.
Mark this day. Milhouse missed sarcasm.
Look, this is all about Roe v Wade and legalized abortion. Abortion has become the cornerstone of modern Liberal Progressive ideology. It allows for prenatal euthanasia of unwanted population. And, it targets Blacks and other minorities over the White majority by a factor of 4:1. It is the leading minority population control measure in this country. And, it all based upon one of the most legally unjustifiable theories ever put forth by a court. First of all, in Roe, the Court actually acknowledged that no right to privacy actually exists under the US Constitution, except where rigorously spelled out in certain amendments. Then, it develops the penumbra theory to Constitutional rights. Under this theory, additional rights, not specified in the Constitution or its Amendments exist within some dark, shadow area visible only to certain “enlightened” jurists. Why not just make judicial decisions based upon consulting entrails or casting bones? Roe is one of the decisions most at risk of any review under strict constructionist guidelines. If it is overturned, this kills abortion on demand. And, it eliminates the main source of the control of unwanted minority populations.
Now, elimination of the ACA would be a setback to the Progressives totalitarian agenda. But, it is always recoverable, with regained control of the Congress and Presidency. However, if the Court ever removes the legal quicksand of the basis for Roe, that decision will sink like a stone taking several other decisions with it and undermining the theory that unseen “rights” and conditions upon the exercise of clearly delineated rights exist in some shadowy realm lurking in the shadow of the Constitution and visible only to enlightened jurists. Other important Constitutional conditions existing in the penumbra are “reasonable restrictions” on the prohibition against infringing upon the individual right to keep and bear arms. The allowing of government action without substantive due process and without extreme exigent circumstances. The power to essentially legislate from the bench, in judicial proceedings; imposing methods of judicial relief not authorized under the Constitution. And, the list goes on.
Strict constructionist interpretation of Constitutional authority and restrictions is the greatest threat to the arbitrary actions of the Progressive state. And, if the populace actually gets a good dose of strict constructionism from the courts, they will love it. No more guessing if the Constitutions and laws mean what they say. No more two-tier justice system. No more arbitrary judicial edicts.
Every single thing accomplished according to the rules that doesn’t come out the way they want is always “illegitimate”. I can barely tolerate having to share the same galaxy as these bottom-feeding progressive troglodytes. They have the social and emotional maturity of toddlers with the intellects to match. They are a cancer on the arse of humanity.
The left took control of the Scotus in the 1930s. IN all that time does anyone remember the right saying we need to pack the court?
“The left took control of the Scotus in the 1930s.”
To the eternal detriment of this nation.
“Vote for us or Trump will destroy America” morphed into “Vote for us so we can destroy America” so suddenly I need a cervical collar.
Our forefathers seriously miscalculated future generations’ capacity for reason. They should have stated the number of justices in the Constitution so that it would have taken an Amendment to change it.
I’m calling “Notorious ACB” on the leftist sites. Should rile them up.
The hill dot com pouted out an article about Notorious ACB taking over dead ruth’s office. Not sure where they figured she go. Maybe trade places with John roberts? He’d probably feel comfy in dead ruth’s office.
