Democrats float the idea of ‘jurisdiction stripping’ of Supreme Court

October 6, 2020

Democrats have been threatening to pack the courts if Donald Trump got a third Supreme Court pick. Long before Ruth Bader Ginsburg died the Democrats were threatening drastic action in order to “even” out the court. Now that Donald Trump has that third nominee the calls to pack the Supreme Court have intensified.

But that is not the only option the Democrats are pondering, in addition to this the Democrats have introduced a term limits bill and now there is also talk being floated in Democratic circles of “jurisdiction stripping.” According to this story, what this means is that Democrats want to limit which types of legislation will be reviewable by the court system–lower courts and the Supreme Court. Here is more:

Facing the prospect of a 6-3 conservative majority on the high court following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg,

Hold it, stop everything. This new pick would give the Supreme Court a 5-4 majority. In case the liberals have not noticed, John Roberts is a liberal. Anyway back to the story:

In recent weeks professors at top-tier law schools have published articles advocating for jurisdiction stripping or other reforms that would chip away at the court’s power rather than simply alter its ideological makeup.

Some liberal proponents believe jurisdiction stripping could help Democrats shield bold future legislation from damaging court battles. In theory a Democratic Congress could pass a health-care plan or a Green New Deal with a provision stipulating that the legislation lies outside the bounds of Supreme Court review.

Under variations of the jurisdiction-stripping proposal, Democratic lawmakers could also limit the ability of lower courts to review legislation

So you pass a bill with an amendment to the legislation which says the legislation cannot be challenged in court and there is nothing that can be done about it? What happened to the separation of powers? They really are getting desperate but this idea takes the cake, they are losing their minds.

      The Constitution mandates that the legislature empowers the courts not vice versa and that the ability to review is under the jurisdiction of the legislature, not the courts. Thus it is entirely legal and constitutional that the legislative branch pass a law mandating no racial quotas, return of property rights and voluntarily association rights that are beyond the reach of the courts as indeed they were prior to the 1950s.

      The legislature has allowed the courts to do what they were unwilling to do, ie homosexual rights, abortion, quotas. This was criminal and corrupt on the part of the government and the Dems change of hearts is due to their apparent loss of control of the judiciary. Well what was good for the goose should be good for the gander. While I would normally agree with the Dems they used the courts to subvert the Constitution so I have no reason to see the courts used to destroy their carefully crafted social change and economic redistribution programs.

        The evil minded Scum want to do away with the Constitution – only Globalist Nimrod Rules are acceptable to them (LowLifes ~ Parasites).

    With polls showing lunch pail up by 12-14%, if true, potential voters can not be paying attention or if they are they’re too stupid to engage in critical thinking.

      For the most part they are products of public education. Critical thinking has been replaced by Critical Theory starting in the late 1970’s. It is no wonder they can listen to progressives tell them what they are about to do to the country and go along in lock step.

        That’s EI – ’emotional intelligence’ rooted in the Lie Premise.
        Emotions are easier to manipulate and program – no thinking required, just ‘feelings’ and feeding their ‘wants’.

    It’s right there in Article 3, Section 2.

    Take good care, and may God bless us all!

    Amazing that they have the time to think of all of the possible ways to destroy our country. This one I put at the top of the list.
