“whole thing is doomed from the start”
Joe Biden’s ‘Supreme Court Commission’ held its first meeting this week. Democrats and the media are selling it as a commission to study reform, but we all know this is just the Biden administration’s way of testing the waters on packing the court with progressive justices.
Note how the story is framed in this report from Reuters:
Biden’s U.S. Supreme Court commission meets to explore broad reforms
President Joe Biden’s commission to study potential changes to the U.S. Supreme Court held its first meeting on Wednesday and will have six months to issue a report on reforms including possibly expanding the number of justices, an idea touted by some liberal activists and Democratic lawmakers.
“We definitely have our work cut out for us,” commission co-chair Cristina Rodriguez said at the end of the virtual meeting that lasted less than half an hour.
Rodriguez, a Yale Law School professor who served in the U.S. Justice Department under Democratic former President Barack Obama, said the 36-member bipartisan commission will not provide recommendations but rather evaluate the “merits and legality” of specific reform proposals.
The other co-chair is Bob Bauer of New York University School of Law, who served as White House counsel under Obama.
So both the chair and the co-chair are holdovers from the Obama administration. Sounds perfectly fair and balanced, doesn’t it?
One Democrat was thoroughly unimpressed. Brain Fallon, the former Hillary Clinton campaign aide who now runs the far-left group ‘Demand Justice’, called the effort “doomed.”

Ex-Clinton aide says Biden’s Supreme Court commission is ‘doomed from the start,’ calls for court packing
A former aide to failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called for packing the Supreme Court and said President Biden’s commission to explore that possibility is “doomed from the start.”
Biden’s Supreme Court commission, which has its first meeting Wednesday, will eventually produce a report on possible changes to the court, including expanding the number of seats.
But Brian Fallon, the executive director of liberal dark money group Demand Justice, says he isn’t holding his breath about what the commission will say.
“It’s not even on my calendar, because I don’t care,” Fallon, a former Clinton aide, told Politico on Monday.
Fallon, who also served in the Obama administration as a spokesman at the Department of Justice, added that there wasn’t a thing the commission would do that was “going to impress” him and added that he believes the “whole thing is doomed from the start.”
“We oughta have a Black woman on the damn court to hear a case like this,” Fallon also said, in reference to the Mississippi abortion case taken up by the Supreme Court on Monday.
The video I used for the featured image is boring and not worth sharing, but I took another screen capture that shows what a hit this is with the public. Take a look at the view count on this video. A whopping 1,400 people have watched this. Also, take note of the thumbs down, which vastly outnumber the thumbs up, and finally, the ‘comments are turned off’ notice at the bottom. We can’t have the pesky public weighing in on this.
They’ve obviously got a real winning idea here.
