Democrats tried to derail Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation by falsely accusing him of being a sexual predator.
Even though Democrats lost that fight they never gave up on neutralizing Kavanaugh.
Now Brett Kavanaugh was given an ultimatum that will change the Supreme Court forever.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler and Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey introduced legislation to pack the Supreme Court by adding four new seats that Joe Biden can fill with radical left-wing justices.
Packing the Court with four new far-left ideologues would flip the Court from a six to three conservative majority to a seven to six liberal majority.
Such a move would destroy the legitimacy of the Supreme Court and help the Democrats cement permanent political power in America.
Right now Democrats don’t have the votes to pass this bill because they can’t unite their Senate caucus around eliminating the filibuster.
But that may not be the purpose of this legislation.
Republican senators believe Democrats introduced the bill to threaten conservative justices Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Neil Gorsuch into voting with the left or else Democrats would trigger the nuclear option on the Supreme Court.
“Just like the last time the Democrats tried packing the Supreme Court, this scheme is meant to intimidate the justices into making liberal rulings,” Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton explained.
“The threats are the point,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell stated. “The hostage-taking is the point.”
For their part, Democrats openly admitted that they hoped the legislation would bully conservative justices to vote with the liberals on every major case.
“The Court needs to know that the people are watching,” Georgia Democrat Congressman Hank Johnson told reporters.
Nadler added that he believed the legislation would cause conservative justices to vote with the left because if they did not then Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi would support court-packing and ram this legislation through Congress.
“I believe that as events unfold, as the Court comes down with decisions destructive to a woman’s right to choose, as they come down with decisions destructive to the climate, as they come down with decisions destructive of civil liberties, I believe that the speaker and others will come along,” Nadler stated.
The left has reason to believe this will work.
Back in 2012, Barack Obama warned the Court not to overturn Obamacare and pressured the Court to rule his way.
Chief Justice John Roberts caved into the bullying and switched his vote to uphold the law instead of overturning the socialist power grab.
Ever since, Roberts slowly morphed into a reliable vote for the left on major cases.
Republicans are worried the court-packing bill could produce a repeat of that nightmare by pressuring a conservative justice into becoming a liberal vote.
