Last week, Senate Democrats escalated their war on the nation’s institutions when a gaggle of members sent an unprecedented threat to the Supreme Court.
The rabid leftists led by no-hoper 2020 candidate Kirsten Gillibrand and the crazed Mazie Hirono vowed that the nation’s highest court could expect a “fundamental restructuring” if the justices didn’t bow to demands to dismantle the Second Amendment.
1. Pack the Supreme Court with leftist judges
2. Expand the administrative state
3. Abolish the electoral college
The goal of Democrats is an all-powerful central government chosen by metropolitan elites, thus ending our Constitutional Republic.https://t.co/me4H0QQePX

The threat was contained within a brief submitted for a New York gun control case and it is clear that the senators were referring to the idea of court-packing which has been called for as a way change the rules of the game because they no longer can win national elections.
The packing of the courts in order to nullify conservative jurists has been accompanied by a similar drive to eradicate the Electoral College which worked to perfection in 2016 by not allowing a huge state like California to override the will of the people in smaller states.
Above all, we need to find a way to restitch our fraying social fabric and rekindle our civic spirit. We need to bring back civics education in our schools. We need systemic economic reforms that reduce inequality and give a strong voice to working families.

The fury that the Electoral College (along with the Russians etc.) was responsible for Hillary Clinton’s stunning upset loss has gained much currency on the left which no longer honors the most fundamental forms of governance that have existed since the inception of this nation.
But while the anarchists in the Senate want to take a wrecking ball to long-standing institutions, Republican Senator Lindsay Graham has a strong message for them:
OVER MY DEAD BODY!
The feisty South Carolinian issued his rebuke to his renegade colleagues during an interview with Fox’s Maria Bartiromo on Sunday morning.
This is been a dream of the Left for decades, is to increase the number of judges on the court, Pack them with liberal judges so the court can do through the legal system what they cannot do through the ballot box. The dream of every leftist is to have a liberal court and enacting laws from the bench. The dream of every conservative is to have judges who will interpret the law, not make the law. So when you hear expanding the court, that is code for liberals packing the court.”
He also had strong words for Dems plotting to screw the “flyover states” with their Electoral College nullification scheme:
“When they want to do away with the Electoral College, that’s telling every rural America to go to hell. That would mean Los Angeles and New York would decide who is the president, the Electoral College allows rural American to have a say about picking the president”
Court-packing has long been the left’s wettest of dreams ever since President Franklin D. Roosevelt was thwarted during the New Deal era but the idea has long been gestating and now that it looks like Trump is cruising to reelection, it will continue to be promoted by those who refuse to accept the results of legitimate elections.
For as long as voters are able to keep the Democrats out of the presidency – at least another four years due to their horrendous slate of candidates – it won’t happen and by that time, RBG may have yielded to the inevitable and given Trump at least one more conservative justice.
More Republicans need to find a backbone and the fighting spirit that Graham has.
