Whoever wins the 2020 Presidential election will nominate at least two Supreme Court justices.
These decisions could shape the next 40 years of American life.
And now the Supreme Court is facing a surprising makeover that no one could imagine.
When Donald Trump ran for President in 2016, one key to his victory was when he produced a list of conservative justices he promised to choose as Supreme Court nominees.
Democrats seethed with jealously over the political masterstroke Trump pulled as it proved pivotal in driving rural evangelical turnout that powered his win.
Now in 2020, it’s the Democrats who are preparing a secret list of radical Supreme Court nominees.
“I would be lying if I said ― in fact, any civil rights or progressive organization would be lying ― if they said there aren’t people they would prefer to see on the bench, because the courts are significant to our ability to advance the constitutional rights and protections that we are committed to advancing,” director of Alliance for Justice’s Building the Bench program Myesha Braden explained to the Huffington Post.
Braden added that liberals would not pressure Biden to make his list public because the left knows it would switch the focus of the race on Joe Biden, which puts the election on terrain unfavorable to the Democrats.
“We try to resist, so to speak, the entire concept of ‘a list’ because it is based on the way judicial selection has always been done,” Braden added.
“It is based on assumptions ― old and outdated assumptions, we think ― about who should be a judge and what their backgrounds should be. We are being intentional with all the various stakeholders we work with and collaborate with to make sure we don’t repeat the same mistakes that got us to a bench that is not diverse.”
Leftists understand that since they only need a simple majority to confirm justices, they have a much wider berth to nominate extreme America-hating justices than when Barack Obama was President.
“An environment where the vote is 51 and not 60 frankly means that you’ve got a bigger playing field to choose from. I think there’s ways to swing for the fence that were potential barriers in the Obama administration,” executive director of People for the American Way Marge Baker told the Huffington Post.
Some Trump supporters fear the Democrats have even more diabolical plans in store for the Supreme Court.
Many Americans believe if the Democrats win the White House and the Senate, they will add up to six new liberal justices to ensure a permanent liberal majority on the Supreme Court.
