Less than a month after the confirmation of Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, law professors are begging Democrats to expand the size of all of the nation’s federal courts and load them with leftists who will enact bench law.
In fact, many people recognize the push as a direct attack on the Constitution, which clearly defines the power to establish laws with Congress.
Fox News reported, “Far-left Harvard professors Mark Tushnet and Laurence Tribe are lending their support to the so-called ‘1.20.21 Project,’ which was launched by political science professor Aaron Belkin on Wednesday to counter ‘Republican obstruction, theft and procedural abuse’ of the federal judiciary.”
The rhetoric is nothing short of scandalous, according to many people, and mirrors the weird delusion these people have after liberalism was rejected in the 2016 Presidential election.
He wrote that liberal judges “who ‘no longer have to be worried about reversal by the Supreme Court’ could be useful in marginalizing those Republican ‘losers,’ whom he compared to the defeated Japanese in World War II or the Confederacy in the Civil War.”
Yet, now, it appears he wants to alter the fabric of the American republic because he’s a sore loser.
“At Kavanaugh’s ceremonial swearing-in ceremony earlier this month, President Trump led a standing ovation for McConnell, whom he called a ‘great’ leader who has done an ‘incredible job for the American people.’ Under McConnell and Trump, Republicans have now confirmed 26 federal appellate judges and two Supreme Court justices. (Kavanaugh’s rise to the Supreme Court creates a new vacancy on the influential D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, where he had served for 12 years.)
“That fast pace of conservative judicial appointments has upended and frustrated some of the assumptions of liberal law professors like Tushnet, who wrote just two years ago, ‘Right now more than half of the judges sitting on the courts of appeals were appointed by Democratic presidents, and – though I wasn’t able to locate up-to-date numbers – the same appears to be true of the district courts.’
Liberal academics have long floated the possibility of flooding the bench with Democrats, although the 1.20.21 Project is their most organized effort to date. For example, another far-left law professor, Indiana University’s Ian Samuel, wrote on Twitter as soon as then-Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement in June that Democrats should “[p]ack the courts” as urgently as they should ‘abolish ICE.’”
Tribe, who has accused President Trump of ‘orchestrating a massive cover-up’ that is ‘worse’ than Richard Nixon, said, “The time is overdue for a seriously considered plan of action by those of us who believe that McConnell Republicans, abetted by and abetting the Trump Movement, have prioritized the expansion of their own power over the safeguarding of American democracy and the protection of the most vulnerable among us.”
Of course, it would be expected that a so-called academic would know that ‘American democracy’ was instituted by Andrew Jackson, and the system of government still used in the United States is a representative republic.
Most conservatives recognize this deluded and outrageous attempt for what it is: the desire to undo a loss, as if these people were in third-grade and screaming ‘not fair.’
Many people agree that their mentality isn’t much more mature than that, and now they are seeking to force their personal opinions and will on free Americans.
