Not satisfied with controlling two of the three branches of government, radical Democrats now want to hijack the U.S. Supreme Court. In a blatant power grab that shreds the constitutional separation of powers, left-wing Democrats have introduced legislation to add four new justices to the court. The current 6-3 conservative majority would overnight become an activist 7-6 liberal stronghold. In a brief item published in the Chicago Tribune ...

Democrats introduce bill to expand Supreme Court to 13: 'Republicans stole the court's majority'

By Carl Hulse

WASHINGTON — A group of House and Senate Democrats on Thursday introduced legislation to expand the Supreme Court from nine members to 13, trying to spur momentum for the first change in the makeup of the court in 150 years.

The Democrats and progressive activists said the change was necessary to restore balance to the court after Senate Republicans blocked President Barack Obama’s nominee in 2016 and pushed through President Donald Trump’s third appointee, Justice Amy Coney Barrett, just days before last year’s election.

They were to appear Thursday on the steps of the Supreme Court to unveil the bill.

“Republicans stole the court’s majority, with Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation completing their crime spree,” Sen. Edward J. Markey, D-Mass., a sponsor of the legislation, said in a statement announcing it. “Senate Republicans have politicized the Supreme Court, undermined its legitimacy, and threatened the rights of millions of Americans, especially people of color, women, and our immigrant communities.”

It's all about the power. While the Republicans have the same objective, they are a bit more covert in their attempts to obtain/maintain power. Democrats don't care if you see them cheating their way to power. They'll gaslight and obfuscate their way into whatever they want.

They've already said (well, at leas The Turtle has) that this move is intended to bring 'balance' back to the court.

If they pull off this Supreme Court coup, anyone who disagrees with the party line will fall under the heavy hand of their vengeance.
