Liberal Justice Breyer Warns Against Court Packing

As you are reading this, Joe Biden has his little minions trying to figure out a way to justify packing the Supreme Court.

That plan, however, is about to take a hefty kick in the pants.

Supreme Court Justice Breyer, one of the three liberal justices on the court, has come out to openly push back against packing the court.

The Movement

When Trump was able to appoint three Supreme Court justices in a single term, pure fear ran through the Democrat Party.

Their worries were for naught, as we have all found out over the last few months.

Every justice Trump appointed has crossed the aisle at some point, proving this to be one of the most balanced courts we have seen in our lifetime.

Even so, Democrats do not like the way things are sitting and there is a significant movement within the party to pack the court to give the technical advantage back to the liberals.

Don’t Do It

Prior to passing away, Justice Ginsburg openly stated that she was not in favor of packing the courts.

Now, Justice Stephen Breyer, another liberal, has said the same.

Breyer stated, “Our power, the court’s power, has to depend on the public’s willingness to respect its decision.

“Respect even those decisions they disagree with… even when they think the decision is seriously mistaken.”

“Proposals have been recently made to increase the number of Supreme Court justices. I’m sure that others will discuss related political arguments.

“This lecture reflects my own effort to be certain that those who are going to debate these questions … also consider an important institutional point. Consider it. Namely, how would court-packing reflect and affect the rule of law itself?

“Discussion of institutional change should include discussion of certain background matters such as the trust that the court has gradually built. The long period of time needed to build that trust.”

You can hear Breyer’s full lecture on this in the video below…

Needless to say, those on the left that want to pack the court could care less what Breyer says…

We all realize that the party in power at the time of a justice passing away or retiring is sheer chance in terms of who gets to appoint justices to the court.

We have lived by that rule since the court was created and to this point, it has worked.

The balance of power in the court is cyclical in nature and at some point, liberals will once again have the advantage.

I go back to a point I made earlier, however, in that although conservatives hold a 6-3 advantage on the court, it is arguably one of the fairest courts we have had in a long time.

I do not always agree with the decisions, but I believe that when you do not know the outcome of the case before it is heard, that is a good thing.

For far too long in this country, all you needed to do was to see party affiliation of a judge to predict the outcome of the case, and that is simply not the way the justice system was meant to be deployed, including the Supreme Court.

  1. The real truth is Court Packing will be a never ending process. If the Dems. want a legal war it will happen just try to pack the Court. Another President can come along and pack it even more think before you act. Just remember Reid’s decision to go to the 50 vote limit it will bite you in the butt the same way.

  2. The Demc. will try anything anyway they can to get the upper hand in Gov,t. It will not work and that is why I would never vote for any of them.

  3. Justice Breyer overestimates the rationality of liberals. They see packing (adding Justices to) the Supreme Court as the way to get their ideas into practice in the US. The practicality or legality of their ideas is irrelevant. They know they are good and right and honorable, and their self-righteous blast of bad ideas will continue to destroy the US.

  4. If “Trust and Respect” have anything to do with it, the so called “SUPREME COURT” would have been done away with decades ago !!! One must remember that above all these clowns are LAWYERS, AKA the scum of the earth !!! There can never be any trust or RESPECT for these professional liars and word twisters, especially the ones that have a “LIFETIME JOB” that was handed to them based upon their political beliefs and the beliefs of the one that handed them the job !! It really doesn’t matter how many there are, they ALL are criminals anyway, WHAT A RACKET !!!!

    1. A little harsh there Randy…The FIRST characteristic that is a MUST HAVE in a SCOTUS is honesty, deep knowledge and commitment of and for the US Constitution. They are SUPPOSED to be WISE people, with NO prejudice for or against any issue. RULE OF LAW is a MUST PRIORITY…(hard to find in ANY human but they MUST strive) AND, I believe they need RESPECT FOR ALL LIFE…ALL!!!

Democrats want to eviscerate commonsense voter ID provisions that have broad support with their H.R. 1 power grab.

They led a massive disinformation campaign about Georgia’s election law.

And now, they want to grab even more power by packing the Supreme Court.
