Biden signs executive order on reviewing Supreme Court

| April 10, 2021

Joe Biden signed an executive order to start the process of forming a commission. The panel will review the Supreme Court and other parts of the federal judiciary. It’s possible that the panel will recommend changes to both. Stephen Breyer, one of the liberal justices, is cautioning against taking actions that could erode the Supreme Court’s authority.

From the National Review:

The 36-member panel will be led by Bob Bauer, who served as White House counsel for former President Barack Obama, and Cristina Rodriguez, a Yale Law School professor who served as deputy assistant attorney general in the Office of Legal Counsel under the Obama administration.

However, as the commission is not set to issue specific guidance at the conclusion of its study, it remains to be seen if the panel will ultimately clarify Biden’s stance on the issue.

The order comes after Justice Stephen Breyer cautioned earlier this week that court packing for political gain could undermine public trust in the court and its decisions.

“I hope and expect that the court will retain its authority,” Breyer said. “But that authority, like the rule of law, depends on trust, 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.”

The liberal justice, who at 82 years old is the oldest judge on the court, has faced calls from progressive groups to retire while Democrats control the Senate and the confirmation process.

The National Review and Politico are among those reporting this development.

    Now this is just a complete guess, but I think the panel will suggest that the SCOTUS needs four new members right away or the oceans will rise and flood the world killing all of us in the next 7 years.

    PedoJoe’s puppeteers really want that civil war, don’t they? When it comes, the question will be how many PFCs are willing to pull the trigger on Americans who want our country back? How many Air Force drone drivers will be okay with sending Hellfires through American windows? I would like to think the answer is “zero,” but I fear that is stupidly optimistic.

      Most will obey. That is the purpose of all the goofy indoctrination. It is not intended to convert them or to convince them. It is meant to train them “go along, for now” and “it isn’t worth the pain, yet.”

      And get along becomes go along becomes “how did I wind up firing on those people when we raided their home at 3am?”

      Prepare yourself, mentally, for that. Because most of them will obey.

      How many of their leaders presently are fighting the crap-tastic stuff, now when it is relatively easy, instead keeping their heads down and mouths shut until they can retire?

      Get ready folks. You will be appalled at what will happen.

      Vote liKe Liberty depends on it.

      • Slow Joe says:

        Sadly, I have to agree with you. Most will obey the orders to fire on the evil deplorables, which by then will be labeled as insurrectionists and domestic enemies of the state, as we saw on the Capitol.

      • USMC Steve says:

        And if they choose to do so, they become the enemy and valid targets. They will find that just like in the revolution, we will be very hard to deal with, let alone finish off, and it will make Afghanistan for the Russians look like nothing.

    Biteme from 1983. Creepy Joe, like Hunter somehow doesn’t seem to remember things.

    • The Other Whitey says:

      The fact that the shithead was already in Congress before I was born indicates a lot of what’s wrong with our government. If we’re still here when the smoke clears, term limits are a must.

      • KoB says:

        Testify TOW. Been preaching that same thing for decades myself. Fat lot of good it does. Even had people tell me, “…yeah he’s/she’s a dirty and a crooked politician but he/she is our dirty crooked politician.” We need a true leader in this country that has the interests of the American people on his mind. Oh…wait…

        Anybody else notice that the majority of the prezzy sniffy admin is oblowme retreads? Nearly.every.single.one. Lots of ‘dark money” spent on the election, this group threw an admitted $60 million toward Joe. And as you look thru the linky at the people that run this org, you’ll notice, yep, buncha oblowmen and Seegarmen there too.

        The politicians stirred the unwitting public against one another back in the mid 1850s to pit citizens against one another. Welp here we are…again. Fed up yet?

        In Gorpey Joe’s “defense”, I seriously doubt he remembers anything he said in 1983.. hell, I doubt he remembers what he had for breakfast this morning..

    This is all Obama, never forget that. Joe doesn’t have the vision to destroy America like Obama does.
    Court packing, unlimited illegal immigration, gun grabs, red flag laws, racist military, cancel culture, big tech, multi trillion dollar BS funding bailouts for liberal cities and “programs” and we are less than 100 days into this illegal regime.
    Up next: vaccine “papers”, social credit scores, releasing illegals into your neighborhood and setting up shop and banks that will determine if you are cancelled or not by the purchases you make.
    It disgusts me to see this happening to the country I served for 24 years.

    Both Bauer and Rodriguez are diehard lefties so we all know how this is going to go.

  7. The new thousand year 4th Reich headed by Fuhrer biden or is it obama is engineering the start of a Dictatorship one party rule. I wonder if they have seances at night in the Reichstag Berghof to try and get info from their late mentor Adolph or maybe King George through the old crystal ball. Knock 3 times if this is Adolph and knock 4 times if it’s George. Am wondering when TAH will have to go underground to avoid the Schutzstaffel direction finding trucks.

    Remember, he is at heart dishonest. He lies to his supporters as much as his opponents. Probably more.

    “Committee to study” is not actually doing anything useful. They already know what would have to be done. FDR did the planning in his first term. Propose the bill in Congress. Vote on it. Sign it. Pick the names and confirm them.

    Note also he said “day one” for gun stuff and look at the calendar.

    Remember, also, zer0’s opinion about Pendejoe’s propensity to F things up. He is more likely to start a war with his LeftLoon “allies”.

    Popcorn?

    • Poetrooper says:

      “Remember, he is at heart dishonest. He lies to his supporters as much as his opponents. Probably more.”

      What we really need to remember is that to leftists, truth and honesty are laughably irrelevant concepts and fake sincerity is their primary weapon.

      • 11B-Mailclerk says:

        Pendejoe is a Joe-ist. The Left likes his platitudes, so he plats Left. If/when he feels more secure in his position, he may throw a few plats Right to pick off some RINO support. Never-Trump got him votes. He will milk that one inside-out.

        Pendejoe the Pres-titute.

  9. Andy11M says:

    Calling it now, the panel will recommend that one seat each on the court should be reserved for, a woman, a black, a Hispanic, and a lgbtwhatever, and a expansion by 4-5 members.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      The seats will ONLY be reserved for those who guarantee they will follow the party agenda.

  10. Sarge says:

    Correct me if I am wrong but a fundamental change to the Constitution would require an amendment?

    I do not believe (yes I do) that Biden is stupid enough to try this shit with an EO.

    • rgr769 says:

      The jurisdiction of the court and the number of justices is controlled by statute, not by the Constitution. They could pass a court packing bill next week, and if they could get past a Senate filibuster, the Progs would have their meat puppet sign it into law the following day.

    • Martinjmpr says:

      No, the Constitution doesn’t say how many judges should be on the SCOTUS.

  11. SidneyBroadshead says:

    Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried it during the New Deal. He was going to keep appointing extra Justices until they outnumbered the sitting Justices that opposed him. The Supreme Court fought him tooth and nail until eventually Roosevelt quit. No other president has tried this trick until now because it makes you look like an autocratic Nazi goon.

    • USMC Steve says:

      He also got almost no support on it from congress, but a whole bunch of pushback. They told him they would not go along with it.
