Democrats are plotting a hostile takeover of America by packing the Supreme Court. Rabidly liberal Jerrold Nadler ran away from the grilling Jim Jordan gave him on Wednesday, when he forced the hot button issue to a head in front of the House Judiciary Committee. The chairman sidestepped the issue as not relevant to the business at hand. The next day, Nadler not only admitted the scheme, he and his cronies went on the offensive. “We’re not packing the Court. We’re unpacking it,” he flatly tweeted Thursday.
A hostile takeover
One thing is certain, Jerrold Nadler is totally terrified of Jim Jordan. He couldn’t even face his colleague honestly to discuss an issue which concerned the committee they both sit on, which Nadler chairs. When Jordan grilled him over the rumors he was plotting a hostile takeover of the Supreme Court, Nadler refused to even answer the question.
Instead, Mr. Clown Shoes acted like a three-year-old throwing a temper tantrum. “It’s being reported,” Jordan probed, “that the Democrats will be introducing legislation to expand the Supreme Court from 9 members to 13 members and that you and two of our members on this committee will be sponsoring that legislation, is that accurate?” It was, but Nadler was terrified to say so. “That is not the subject of the markup,” Nadler sidestepped.
The Ohio conservative knew that. Which is exactly why Jordan waited until that business was finished before raising the takeover issue in front of the whole committee. “I waited until the bill was over to ask the Chairman a question, if you don’t think it’s important about Democrats trying to extend the size of the Supreme Court — I think that’s a pretty important issue.”

After all, the rumors said he had help from two more committee members with the scheme. “Extending the Supreme Court, a report that the chairman is going to be sponsoring legislation is not something to be talked about on the House Judiciary Committee?”
Nadler made noises like a fish and quivered. That prompted the House Judiciary GOP to tweet out that the hostile takeover was going to have some challenges. “Sounds like the Democrats are running away from the bill before it’s even introduced!” By the time Nadler got home the story was assaulting him from every channel.
After a sleepless night he very carefully tapped out a message to all the progressive twits who follow him. “Some people say we’re packing the Court. We’re not packing the Court. We’re unpacking it.” Very clever, he believes. He also sits on the “Intelligence” committee, which is not a good thing.

An official announcement
After Jerrold Nadler had his backside handed to him publicly over the takeover plot, he gathered support and stormed the airwaves on Thursday to mount a counter-offensive. He led a whole group of Democrats including Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey in a public announcement that they will introduce a bill “to add four more justices to the nation’s highest court.” Representatives Hank Johnson of Georgia and Mondaire Jones of New York are co-sponsors.
“We are here today because the United States Supreme Court is broken. It is out of balance, and it needs to be fixed,” Markey whines. “Too many Americans view our highest court in the land as a partisan, political institution, not our impartial, judicial branch of government.”
Franklin Graham was quick to call the Democrat’s takeover scheme “dangerous days for our nation.” As soon as he heard about the dust-up between Nadler and Jordan, he had to get a statement out to the faithful.
These are dangerous days for our nation. Liberal progressives want to pack the Supreme Court. They want to be able to pass every piece of socialistic, agenda-driven legislation they can dream up to transform this country into a godless, secular society. https://t.co/5J1umHVbeT

“These are dangerous days for our nation. Liberal progressives want to pack the Supreme Court,” Graham warns. “They want to be able to pass every piece of socialistic, agenda-driven legislation they can dream up to transform this country into a godless, secular society.” Even Notorious RBG was against the idea.
As Graham pointed out, “Even the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg was against packing the court.” When someone that liberal opposes that sort of one-sided takeover, it’s really bad. “Pray for our leaders in Congress and for our nation,” he begs.
The last time someone tried a similar move was when “President Franklin D. Roosevelt made an unsuccessful attempt to increase the number of Supreme Court justices in 1937.” It went down in flames then and is destined to again. Pundits call the proposal “dead on arrival” because Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said she had “no plan to bring it to the floor.”
