ARE YOU SHOCKED YET AT THIS IN YOUR FACE COURT PACKING, WHILE THEY LAMENT THAT BIDEN WILL BE PACKING THE COURTS IF HE WINS?
HOW COULD BIDEN NOT IMMEDIATELY PUT FOUR (4) ASSOCIATE JUSTICES ON THE COURT TO RIGHT THE WRONG THAT HAS BEEN GORSUCH, KAVANAUGH, AND NOW AMEY CONEY BARRETT?
Here is your next supreme court justice Amey Coney Barrett.
She was asked by a Democratic Senator if there were any circumstances under which the president could delay the presidential elections?
She did a roundabout answer, that she would have to read the briefs in front of her, that she would have to consult with her law clerks, and basically conference with her colleagues.
Donald Trump wanted to set the elections back, the only problem is that he has no such power. There was an election during the civil war and Lincoln had no power to set the elections back or to cancel them.
The short answer to the question posed to the future associate justice is that a president has zero power to cancel or postpone the elections.
So there .…. What she did as a lackey for Trump was to bullshit on the answer in order to get herself on the court and to ingratiate herself with her criminal sponsor Donald Trump.
Asked if it is legal for teams of poll watchers to be allowed to stand around polling places and intimidate voters wishing to cast their ballots, she refused to answer with a simple no.
These are the political hatchet wielders who are being rushed onto the highest court that will nullify the will of the American people when they vote.
Republicans have found a way to push back the will of the majority of Americans who have voted twice in the last 16-years for Democrats to be presidents and have seen their will subverted by an archaic electoral college law, in addition to the two US Senators per state rule, that places the voices of white rural voters over the tens of millions more who live in cities and suburbs.
America is for all intents and purposes, a white minority rule nation, where rural whites in small states set their agenda for the nation over the will of the tens of millions of voters who live in large states like California, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, and many others.
So the 578,759 people living in the entire state of Wyoming, get to cancel out the voices over thirty-nine million of the 40,000,000 people living in the state of California, or over twenty-nine million of the 30’000;000 living in New York.
So the republican strategy is to pack the courts with right-wing reactionary hatchet-wielders who will simply chop down established precedent as the court has already done with citizens united, as with Shelby county Alabama Vs Holder, as it does with stopping the census count on the demand of a criminal strongman pretending to be an American president.♠
