Joe Biden is really uniting the country – we’re all united against him.
Even his own SCOTUS justice has had enough of his radical policies.
Justice Stephen Breyer – one of the more liberal justices on the court – is sitting back and watching the Biden clown show unfold and he doesn’t like what he’s seeing…
So much so, that he actually took the unprecedented step to “scold” Biden over his inkling to “pack” the SCOTUS.
Justice Breyer is not a fan of this idea – as a matter of fact, he outright opposes it.
Breyer says that if Biden was to “pack” the court, that move alone would actually diminish the public’s confidence in the court.
This is very true…but there’s one huge problem with this argument…the left doesn’t care about the public.
All they care about is power.
Justice Stephen Breyer, widely known as one of the three liberal justices on the Supreme Court, warned against left-wing calls to pack America’s highest court with additional justices in order to weaken the conservative majority, explaining during a Tuesday Harvard Law School address that it would “diminish” confidence among the American people.
Breyer delivered the remarks on Tuesday in an address in which he said he aimed to “make those whose initial instincts may favor important structural or other similar institutional changes, such as forms of ‘court-packing,’ think long and hard before embodying those changes in law.”
The implications, the 82-year-old justice said, would be great and undermine the American people’s confidence in the courts and “in the rule of law itself.”
“If the public sees judges as ‘politicians in robes,’ its confidence in the courts, and in the rule of law itself, can only diminish, diminishing the court’s power, including its power to act as a ‘check’ on the other branches,” Breyer explained.
Breyer also appeared to dismiss characterizations of a hyper-partisan court, which liberals say stands 6-3 in favor of conservatives, but which conservatives say is still shaky on whether the Court has a consistent conservative majority at all. However, the justice noted that the Court famously refused to hear cases related to the highly contested 2020 presidential election — a telling sign, in Breyer’s mind.
“The court’s decision in the 2000 presidential election case, Bush v. Gore, is often referred to as an example of its favoritism of conservative causes,” Breyer explained. “But the court did not hear or decide cases that affected the political disagreements arising out of the 2020 Trump v. Biden election.”
As Breitbart News reported, Justice Clarence Thomas and other conservative justices voted to hear these cases, excoriating his colleagues like Breyer for refusing to consider the legal arguments they presented.
“It did uphold the constitutionality of Obamacare, the health care program favored by liberals,” he continued, referring to a 5-4 decision by the Supreme Court in 2012, during a time when few people would have said the Court had a conservative majority at all.
“It did re-affirm precedents that favored a woman’s right to an abortion. It did find unlawful certain immigration, census, and other orders, rules, or regulations, favored by a conservative president,” he said.
Because of the nature of these rulings, favoring the political left at times and right at others, Breyer said it convinces him that “it is wrong to think of the court as another political institution.”
Ultimately, he said the court’s authority is built on “a trust that the court is guided by legal principle, not politics.”
“Structural alteration motivated by the perception of political influence can only feed that perception, further eroding that trust,” he added.
The left’s calls to pack the court heated up right after President Trump nominated Justice Amy Coney Barrett to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
That happened just weeks before the 2020 presidential election sham.
Biden has always played the “packing” rumors close to the vest and refused to say if he supported expanding the Supreme Court or not.
Eventually, under a lot of pressure, he finally said that he was not a “fan” of it, but we all know that means absolutely nothing.
It’s clear by Breyers scolding that he’s hearing some serious “buzz” about it again, and that’s likely why he spoke out.
