Justice Stephen Breyer is warning Democrats against “packing” the Supreme Court as a way to undo the current conservative majority.

Breyer, the longest-serving of three Democrat-nominated justices, aired his views shortly before President Biden on Friday announced a 36-member commission to study the issue.

Breyer, 82, denounced the idea during a webcast lecture for Harvard Law School on Thursday, saying that it could undermine “the trust that the court has gradually built.”

“What I’m trying to do is to make those whose instincts may favor important structural change or other similar institutional changes such as forms of court packing to think long and hard before they embody those changes in law,” Breyer said.

It is going to undermine the trust. No term limits on SCOTUS either. Stop politicizing the damn courts. you are doing damage that can't be repaired.
I only disagree with him on term limits. Their needs to be a retirement age. People love power too much.
There is a reason they are appointed for life.
Yes, and requiring them to retire at a reasonable age, say 78, doesn't interfere with those reasons.
If there minds are still sharp and there health is good, I see no reason for them to retire. Ginsberg was sick and battled a terminal disease, she should have retired however she was motivated to stay for the wrong reasons.
Fine, term limits aren't something I care about, but I can understand the reasoning, I guess. A lot of the right are bitterly complaining that President Biden is senile, that RBG was senile, that others do their work, so I guess it's an issue for some people.

It (mental unfitness such as senility/dementia/Altzheimer's) certainly was an issue to the founders who wrote the United States Constitution. And Joe Biden was well on his way to profound confusion that goes with 'senility' when he was hiding himself in the basement during the campaign months. He is totally dependent on his puppeteers who used him to obfuscate their bent to take over this free land only to push Marxist theory to replace amendments by cancelling Constirutional safeguards for the common man to be equal with and oppose those whose designs target the tenets of liberty for all.

History of socialism winds up murdering opponents and not negotiation with opposition the fake will to share power. AOC put it in no uncertain terms that she would like to push her experimentalism over accounting to her opposition a few weeks ago before her fake reelection in a district fighting unemployment when she kicked out Amazon from making her district prosperous with the wealth of jobs in her New York burrough. God help the real grass roots suffering under AOC's severe incompetence and major unpopularity remedied only by crooked ballot stuffing to put her chaotic incompetence back into power. I think she is even less popular than Biden's mental decline. Sick way to get "elected" when you are that unpopular with the common people who depend on honesty to vote. That honesty is no longer there but power grabs are ruling in Democrat precincts.

America should have enforced the 1954 law Congress passed to forbid Communism in this land. It is pure hell against human rights.

Democrats want to pick 4 more anti Republican Supreme Court Justices. I saw this a few minutes ago on Fox tv. What do you think?

No, we don't. We want Bart O'kavenaugh removed for cause, and then you need to decide whether you wanna keep goresuch or barrett, because by your own reasoning one or the other is illegitimate.

What cause? Because the Nazis slandered and libeled him?

Fuck you.

Bring in the Chinese, Motherfucker. That's your end game - take this civil war the Nazi democrats are waging against America - this treason of the fuckwad scum democrats - and push it to the point that decent people take up arms against the Nazi fucks. Then the Nazis will turn to you, to your country, and ask you to invade with the help of the democrats, to "restore order."

RIGGING is what Democrats do. Rig social media and the press. Flood the country with millions of illegals to rig the electorate. Ignore election laws. Ignore immigration laws. Ignore the Constitution. Ignore election outcomes. Ballot 'harvesting'.

You have to hand it to the little Dem bastards there's no evil they won't use to gain power.

Yeah. . . I can't see it happening.

The rule change would have to go through Congress. All of the GOP would oppose it, and there, would be, presumably, some sane Democrats that would oppose it to.


Nope,

The Nazis, the democrats, march in lockstep as one collective with a central hive-mind.

Remember, Fox News admitted in Court that no ”reasonable person” would believe anything that Tucker Carlson has to say.

Yo Nazi;

Before I call you a fucking liar, why don't you go ahead and link to a legitimate source on that?
Google is your friend, Bozo.


Sydney Powell is using the Tucker Carlson defense.


Her defense, like Tucker's, is that only idiots would believe what she had to say.

You Nazis want to seize power through any and all means.

Your Reich is determined to spark a full blown shooting war so that you can invite your Chinese overlords in to "restore order."
You are the nazi fascists, Uncensored 2008, and we won by fair, democratic means, and then we defeated you at the Battle for the Capitol on January 6.

A Reich Member is about to regale us with how a system where the means of production is under the absolute control of the state, in which the state sets production levels, what products will be produced. in what quantity, and at what price they will be sold under a totalitarian dictatorship, where individualism is repressed - brutally - in favor of the collective, where individual rights are supplanted in favor of group privilege, where dissent against the party, the Reich, or collectivism is a criminal act, where religion is highly regulated, and doctrine determined by the state is somehow not socialist.

What veto, do you even know how many votes it would take in the Senate to change the lineup of the Supreme Court? Do you know that the number of justices we have now has been changed several times over the history of the US? One reason it is increased is for caseload, the number we have now was set in 1869.

. . . which economic system and its means of production in the US is under the control of the government?

You seem very confused.

What you didn't say is that even if the number in SCOTUS was increased there would still be a back load, because all Justices must sit to hear the case brought before SCOTUS. It is purely a political ploy....
There is no way that Schumer could get this passed because there will not be a reconciliation vote on this. It's too important and would require a 2/3rds Senate vote.....

Are you claiming Veggie Joe would sign a bill to implement a "bonehead idea"? You may be right.............he has done it before.
