"Reform" Commission On Supreme Court Doesn't Bow To Left

The far-Left was hoping for more---much more from President Biden's commission to "reform" the highest court in the nation.

They did not bow to the crazed demand by the progressives to add seats to the Court. In fact, they said there was "profound disagreement" among members of the commission.

Conservatives say the Supreme Court is worth defending because it is the "last line of defense" to protect our civil liberties.

Be informed, not misled.

The court is in the cross hairs. 

The commission created by President Biden to "reform" the highest court in the nation has concluded its study without bowing to incredible pressure from the Left to come back with a recommendation to increase the number of justices, and/or establish some kind of term limits.

In its report released last week, the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States said there was "profound disagreement" among its group of legal scholars over the two volatile issues it was tasked with researching and debating.

Thankfully, President Trump nominated three justices to the current court who are originalists---therefore they are conservative rather than "progressive," which holds that the Constitution is shaped by the culture because it is a "living" document.

Jeremy Dys, an attorney with First Liberty Institute, told American Family News that the Left will keep pushing for so-called "court reform" because, in their view, the Right is pursuing an ideologically driven agenda.

Dys says that is simply not true.

The Left sees the Supreme Court as another tool to subdue the conservative Right and their traditional  values.

The Los Angles Times published a feature article titled, "Why the Supreme Court is one of the greatest threats to the American Democracy."

In it they note that Gen Mark A. Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, during the run-up to the 2020 election worried about a "Reichstag moment" that he resolved with his colleagues to thwart whatever the former president [Trump] might try to do."

"The truth is," the Times says, "the biggest threat to American democracy isn't a military coup, as Milley's laudable behavior tends to show. The more probable danger is much less dramatic and much more terrifying: a horrible decision from the final arbiter of our constitutional system---the Supreme Court of the United States." 

However, the Court is hearing cases that will impact society. 

The Supreme Court heard a Second Amendment case in November regarding New York's state law that restricts firearms to inside the home.

Leftist Democrats were livid when the Supreme Court agreed to hear the Mississippi abortion case, which was argued before the Court last week. That case, as you know, could overturn Roe v Wade. I believe the Democrats think it will, and they and their abortion industry colleagues are already preparing for the worst. The Supreme Court ruling will be announced in June.

There is another case being heard this week by the Court that has to do with school choice in the state of Maine.

Dy says the Supreme Court is worth protecting from the far Left because it is the "last line of defense" to protect our civil liberties as guaranteed by the US Constitution.

He says, "I think until this whole thing is completely put to bed, Americans are going to have to continue to be vigilant to preserve the institution that preserves our freedom--- Whether that's Congress, the White House, or especially our last line of defense, our judiciary."

The radical Left is obsessed with destroying our institutions in their "Build Back Better" facade. They are passionate about "remaking America" into something our Founders never intended.

John Adams, one of our Founding Fathers, warned of this: 

"We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled  by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

Many trusted voices are calling Americans to action. To be informed, engaged, and vigilant.

A generation after our Founding Fathers, Daniel Webster told his colleagues in Congress, 

"If the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for the selfish and local purposes. Corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizens will be violated or disregarded."

Pray for our country. 

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Engaged. Be Prayerful.
