The Far-Left was outraged when the Supreme Court correctly ruled to overturn Joe Biden’s eviction moratorium last week, but the ruling may have helped them advance their plan to hijack the high court and pack it with enough activist justices to mold the court in their image.
The Far-Left officially launched their plan to hijack the Supreme Court back in April. That’s when extremists in the Democrat Party rolled out the Judiciary Act of 2021 — a bill sponsored by Sen. Ed Markey (MA), House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler (NY) and Reps. Hank Johnson (GA) and Mondaire Jones (NY).
The goal of their legislation is to enlarge the Supreme Court from nine seats to 13 seats, a move they claim is necessary to restore balance to a court that currently holds a 6-3 conservative majority — a majority that we all know doesn’t exist despite claims by Mitch McConnell to the contrary.
“We are here today because the United States Supreme Court is broken, it is out of balance and it needs to be fixed. Too many Americans view our highest court in the land as a partisan, political institution, not our impartial judicial branch of government,” Markey said at a press conference.
“Some people will say we’re packing the court. We’re not packing it, we’re unpacking it. Senator McConnell and the Republicans packed the court over the past couple of years,” said Nadler. “So this is a reaction to that. It’s a necessary step in the evolution of the court.”
Though he claimed to oppose the Far-Left plan to
expand hijack the Supreme Court, Biden formed a “bipartisan” commission to conduct a 180-day study of potential changes to the Court, including court packing and term limits for justices.
“The Commission’s purpose is to provide an analysis of the principal arguments in the contemporary public debate for and against Supreme Court reform, including an appraisal of the merits and legality of particular reform proposals,” the White House said in a statement. “The topics it will examine include the genesis of the reform debate; the Court’s role in the Constitutional system; the length of service and turnover of justices on the Court; the membership and size of the Court; and the Court’s case selection, rules, and practices.”
At the same time that this was going on in Congress, Demand Justice, a Chuck Schumer-led group that describes itself as “a progressive movement fighting to restore balance to the courts,” started to demand that Justice Stephen Breyer retire to begin transforming the high court — a transformation that includes the far-left plan to hijack the Supreme Court.
With this as a background, pundits of the Far-Left used the Supreme Court ruling to overturn Biden’s eviction moratorium — a decision that Biden admitted was likely when he issued the moratorium due to its unconstitutionality — to renew their call to hijack the high court (via FOX News):
Liberal media members and pundits reacted angrily to the U.S. Supreme Court overturning the federal moratorium on evictions, despite the Biden administration’s admitting weeks ago it had no legal standing to extend the moratorium.
Former President Donald Trump’s niece, Mary Trump, a regular at some liberal outlets, called for the court to be expanded to make the conservative-leaning members a “minority.” She described the six justices in favor of overturning the moratorium as “cruel” and “conscienceless.” (emphasis mine)
"Supreme Court votes 6-3 to strike down CDC eviction moratorium" in the middle of a still-raging pandemic.
Expand the Supreme Court and make these cruel, conscienceless six a permanent minority.

“This week alone, the Supreme Court has attacked Biden’s eviction moratorium while pushing for the reinstatement of Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy. At what point do Democrats wake up, smell the coffee, get spines and rebalance this packed Supreme Court?” wrote left-wing MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan, before adding that any action taken would require Congress and Democrats to have “spines.” (emphasis mine)

Other critics from the media also took to Twitter to slam the decision, with some, including former Secretary of Labor and cable regular Robert Reich, joining the call to expand the court, and others expressing outrage over the court making the decision amid a pandemic. (emphasis mine)
The 6 Republican SCOTUS appointees (including 3 from Trump-McConnell) just threw out Biden's eviction moratorium, clearing the way for landlords to push tenants onto the street.
Shameful. Urge Breyer to retire. Criticize SCOTUS's loss of credibility. Expand the size of SCOTUS.

In response to the introduction of the Judiciary Act of 2021, the faux-conservative House Freedom Caucus put on a show pretending to stand for the Constitution by introducing a bill to amend the Constitution in order to prevent hijacking the Supreme Court.
For those thinking that the Far-Left will be unable to achieve their goal of hijacking the Supreme Court due to the 60-vote filibuster rule in the Senate, think again. Chuck Schumer has already laid the groundwork for what he’s calling “filibuster reform.” If successful, Schumer will be able to cram the entire far-left agenda down the throat of America.
Based on Markey’s comments when he introduced the bill to hijack the Supreme Court, getting rid of the filibuster is a key part of the plan to expand the Supreme Court. “We begin the case today, clearly we would want Republicans to vote with us,” said Markey. “But if they are not willing to participate in that effort, then we can still do this on a basis of 51 votes, and that will ultimately require a repeal of the filibuster and passage of this legislation with 51 votes.”
The Judiciary Act of 2021 hasn’t gone anywhere so far and Nancy Pelosi claims to have “no plans” to bring the bill to the House floor for a vote, although, she also said that such an idea is “not out of the question.”
“No. I support the president’s commission to study such a proposal, but frankly I’m not — right now, we’re back, our members, our committees are working. We’re putting together the infrastructure bill and the rest.
“I don’t know if that’s a good idea or a bad idea. I think it’s an idea that should be considered and I think the president’s taking the right approach to have a commission to study such a thing. It’s a big step.
“It’s not out of the question. It has been done before in the history of our country a long time ago. And the growth of our country, the size of our country, the growth of our challenges in terms of the economy, etc., might necessitate such a thing.” (emphasis mine)
Pelosi wants you to believe she isn’t directly involved in the far-left plan to hijack the Supreme Court, but in the words of the television commercial, “That’s not how this works. That’s not how any of this works.” When your party controls every lever of government, things like this are done with the complete cooperation of everyone involved.
Biden is in on it. Schumer is in on it. Pelosi is in on it. Heck, even some Republicans are in on it. Everything else is political posturing. Nothing more, nothing less.
Could it be that the Supreme Court ruling overturning Biden’s eviction moratorium will help the Far-Left achieve its objective of hijacking the Supreme Court?
Looks like it will to me.
