Lemon: “If Joe Biden wins, Democrats can stack the courts and they can do that amendment and get it passed.”
Cuomo: “Well, you need two-thirds vote in the Congress and three-quarters of the state legislatures.”
Lemon: “They may be able to do that.”
Does the electorate have any doubt as to what are the intentions of the leftwing base of the Democrat Party? The Dems have been trending Marxist/Socialist since the 1950’s.
I doubt that John Kennedy could even win the party’s nomination as candidate for president of the United States. JFK is more similar to Ronald Reagan than Bernie Sanders who unabashedly promotes a new brand of Progressivism which he calls Democratic Socialism.
By any other name it is still Socialism. The subsets of Socialism — Fascism and Communism — were defeated in the 20th century. What makes Sanders think that his version will succeed?
Socialism has to be imposed either by force of arms or legislative edict. It is opposed to the fundamental tenets of freedom and liberty. In America, the Left has had to depend on Congress and the courts to implement their agenda.
That’s why elections matter.
With the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Republicans have an opportunity to confirm a conservative successor. Why is that important?
- Democrats have a problem with the Constitution because it spells out what government can’t do rather than what it can do.
- Democrats don’t like the electoral process which is why they want to abolish the Electoral College.
- Democrats don’t like capitalism nor the principles and traditions of America’s founding which they consider to be the source of all the nation’s ills.
Following his landslide reelection in 1936, President Roosevelt proposed the Judicial Procedures Reform Bill of 1937. The initiative would have expanded the Supreme Court to as many as 15 judges and forced those over the age of 70 to retire. The average age of the justices in 1937 was 71 so Roosevelt clearly intended to stack the court with friendly judges who would rubber stamp his Progressive agenda which had been struck down as unconstitutional by the high court in his previous term.
The president also appoints judges to the court of appeals and district court where liberal appointees tend to make law rather than interpret law — this, by design, in order to enact Progressive initiatives that fail to pass Congress.
When Lemon talks about fairness, is it fair that a district court in San Francisco can rule against the will of the people? There are many examples of this including the marriage referendums in California (Propositions 8 and 22) that were struck down by the court.
The Democrat Party’s long game is to stack the courts, abolish the Electoral College, gain control of both houses of Congress, grant statehood to the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico — thus adding four additional Democrat seats in the Senate — and effectively instituting one-party rule.
President Trump is the only person standing in their way. That’s what the “witch hunt” was all about. Democrats never accepted the results of the 2016 election though they are quick to declare that Trump won’t leave if Biden wins.
The resistance was initiated in the Obama White House before and after the election. Democrats sought to overthrow a duly elected president simply because they held disdain for the man, and believed they were entitled to win.
The unwarranted impeachment was payback to tarnish the man’s legacy. Said Nancy Pelosi, “Whatever else happens, history will record that this president was impeached. He will always be impeached.”
Sounds like the petty frustrations of a bratty child who throws a temper tantrum when they feel they haven’t been treated fairly, or as Don Lemon complained, “It’s not fair.”
Nothing is fair when you embrace a sense of entitlement. That’s why the Left is perpetually gloomy and angry. They believe everything should be handed to them on a silver platter — and the Democrat Party, in order to gain and hold power, is all too willing “to blow up the entire system” in order to implement their socialist agenda.
Beware, not only did they attempt to overthrow the president, the Left is seeking to overthrow America.
