Frustrated with their inability to win elections at the national level because of their far-left extremism, Democrats have been reduced to efforts to change the system itself.
Much effort has been invested in the elimination of the Electoral College following Hillary Clinton’s winning of the popular vote (translation: California) but loss of the presidency and now the nation’s highest court is also on their hit list.
In an unprecedented and dangerous escalation, Senate Democrats issued a warning to the Supreme Court that if it does not join their war on the Second Amendment that there will be hell to pay.
A pack of the most rabid leftist senators including the narcissistic no-hope 2020 candidate Kirsten Gillibrand and the crazed Mazie Hirono threatened the SCOTUS that there will be a restructuring if the conservative justices don’t knuckle under on an upcoming gun control case.
1. Pack the Supreme Court with leftist judges
2. Expand the administrative state
3. Abolish the electoral college
The goal of Democrats is an all-powerful central government chosen by metropolitan elites, thus ending our Constitutional Republic.https://t.co/me4H0QQePX

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.'”
Court-packing has long been the left’s wettest of dreams ever since President Franklin D. Roosevelt was thwarted during the New Deal era and with it looking increasingly unlikely that they will beat President Trump, the assault on the court is intensifying.
And very conveniently, the anti-gun zealots are exploiting two recent mass shootings to launch their assault as Dick Durbin – who once compared U.S. troops to Nazis – drew the battle lines.
I’m urging SCOTUS to stand on their principles instead of co-signing the gun lobby’s agenda. https://t.co/sqkt1vnhgC

But it won’t happen without ferocious opposition and leading the way is Republican Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham who blasted his Senate colleagues:
When you hear Democrats talking about expanding the Supreme Court……..they are talking about making the Court more liberal.
This has been a Dream of the Left for decades.
I will do everything in my power to ensure that dream is NEVER fulfilled!

Via Fox News:
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., blasted his Democratic colleagues on Wednesday for sending a stern and unusual warning to the Supreme Court earlier this week in connection with a gun case.
Judiciary Committee members Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, and Richard Durbin, D-Ill., along with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., wrote in a brief filed Monday that the “Supreme Court is not well.” They suggested the court “heal itself” or face public pressure to be “restructured.”
Graham said this was a clear reference to expanding the number of justices on the court to make it more liberal.
“When you hear Democrats talking about expanding the Supreme Court……..they are talking about making the Court more liberal,” Graham said in a Wednesday tweet that linked to a Fox News article about the brief. “This has been a Dream of the Left for decades. I will do everything in my power to ensure that dream is NEVER fulfilled!”
It is important to note that this is no longer the Democratic party of old – or even that of a few short years ago – but is now a virulent collection of socialist extremists who are hellbent at dismantling the nation’s longstanding institutions that stand in their way.
Never has it been more imperative to crush this anti-constitutional uprising by voting in overwhelming numbers next November to roll back this authoritarian socialist attack on America.
