Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental restructuring if justices do not take steps to "heal" the court in the near future.

The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court's conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.

"The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it," the brief said. "Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be 'restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.'"

The last part was quoting language from a Quinnipiac University poll, in which 51 percent favored such restructuring. In the same poll, 55 percent believed the Supreme Court was "motivated by politics" more than by the law.

Dramatic changes to the Supreme Court have been proposed by several Democrats vying for their party's 2020 presidential nomination, with "court-packing" being a common -- though highly controversial -- suggestion. Increasing the number of justices on the court would allow the president to shift the balance on the bench by loading up justices of his or her preference.

Democratic candidates, including former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas, and Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Kamala Harris of California, and Gillibrand, all have signaled an openness to expanding the number of judges on the court should they reach the White House.

The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Here lies in honored glory an American soldier, known but to God

THE ESTABLISHMENT IS THE PROBLEM...NOT THE SOLUTION

Republicans Don't Need A Back Bench...They Need a BACKBONE!

DEMS will continue to push until they get what they want; full blown socialism and a collapse of this Republic. 
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

Da Fuq?  "Heal?" 

Chucky would not like a "healed" SCOTUS.
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.

I think they do it because it works. Roberts fails us on almost every major issue. He either punts, or rules with the leftists.

What else did you expect from a closeted and blackmailed homosexual justice that was appointed by a blackmailed and closeted homosexual president?

Truth to tell I was researching for something to watch on Hulu and 12 monkeys was apparently the last thing I copied and pasted to search and when I thought I had copied this title for my reply, that popped up instead, so I just went with it.

What?  What they are claiming is what the ninth circuit is doing.  Political motivated court rulings.  Not the law.  How can they warn the Supreme Court it is a separate power for a reason.  America is dying.

We're finally getting a good handle on the 9th Circuit.  There's still plenty of life in this nation.

And once again these threats from the Libs are based on the fact that the Justices are about to hear the case of NYC and they’re unconstitutional restrictions on being able to carry your firearm from your house in the city to a gun range outside city limits.

So they’ve threatened the Justices to either vote their way on this Second Amendment case or else.

And people wonder why we don’t trust these politicians when it comes to guns and the Second Amendment.

I can't trust them on anything anymore, including healthcare, immigration, and abortion.

@txradioguy

That's enough to make you wonder why there are no such restrictions on bodyguards in NYC,ain't it?

I wonder if the FACT that almost all (maybe all by now?) the bodyguards in NYC who are armed are off-duty or retired NYC cops who earn more money protecting the wealthy a few hours a night than they did in a whole week as a cop might have anything to do with those laws?

This is a pandering to their base.

Senate Dems know they have nothing to do with deciding who gets onto the Supreme Court and are trying to influence their electorate.

It will backfire.

Judi McLeod runs a great publication, Canada Free Press.  I once commented on one of her articles that I wanted to have her baby.  She laughed.
