Ruth Bader Ginsburg made this jaw-dropping admission about the Supreme Court’s future

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the leader of the Court’s liberal block.

But Ginsburg just put her supporters in shock.

That’s because Ruth Bader Ginsburg made this jaw-dropping admission about the Supreme Court’s future.

Many Democrat candidates running for president have expressed support for the idea of packing the court with anywhere from two to six new liberal justices.

They are playing off their base’s rage over Mitch McConnell and the Republicans supposedly “stealing” a Supreme Court seat by blocking a vote on Merrick Garland’s nomination after Antonin Scalia’s death, and then confirming Neil Gorsuch after Donald Trump’s victory.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg believes this is a terrible idea.

And she told NPR in an interview that the Supreme Court should stay at nine justices.

NPR reports:

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said in an interview Tuesday that she does not favor proposals put forth by some Democratic presidential candidates who have advocated changing the number of Supreme Court justices if the Democrats win the presidency.

Ginsburg, who got herself in trouble criticizing candidate Donald Trump in 2016, this time was critical, not of any particular Democratic contender, but of their proposals to offset President Trump’s two conservative appointments to the court.

“Nine seems to be a good number. It’s been that way for a long time,” she said, adding, “I think it was a bad idea when President Franklin Roosevelt tried to pack the court.”

Several Democratic candidates have indicated an openness, if they were to win the presidency, to adding to the number of justices on the Supreme Court to reduce the power of the current conservative majority. Some would also like to enact term limits for Supreme Court justices.

If Democrats go down the court packing road, it will start an endless cycle of each side adding justices every time they control the White House and the Senate.

But Democrats are so consumed with rage and hatred toward President Trump that they still may go down this disastrous path.

  1. I can not wait to see who the DimDems nominate for 2020. An apparent,
    pseudo-conservative Dem, who shows his/her true (lib) colors SHOULD he/she
    be elected or an HONEST true blue liberal without any subterfuge in his/her
    rhetoric? Hmmmmmmm?

  2. It’s a jacked up system! Instead both parties searching out intellects that can read, they search out ones that can be bought. Now that Trump has been elected we’ve all had a lesson. The lesson I’ve learned is that both sides never wanted an outsider coming into the party and busting up the massive wealth scam called politics. Trumps tariffs have made politicians mad not because of constituents that it may affect but the effect it has on their stock portfolio. Take for instance the current stock market. I looked at a report of 10 major companies and everyone had second quarter earnings that surpassed their expectations and ended up being profitable. Yet the narrative they want to sell is the sky is falling so as to create fluctuation in the market. Why? To affect the countries image of our President. To reduce share price temporarily so they can scoop up at a cheaper price, we lose they gain. They can do this out will with their left wing MSM. The appointment of Supreme Court Justices is another outdated tool to help manipulate fortunes by a select few. Some say the 1% of the 1%. I say that’s a lie, I say 5-6 families in this country.

  3. Monkeying around with the Supreme Court is total folly. We have never had it so good in the United States. The rest of the world wants to get in and the Demo-rats are not happy with the state of the Union. May be they would be happy with our cities burning, bombed out and people starving. Count your blessing D-rats…your cheese is on the cracker!

  4. As usual, you’ve attempted to write a novel, filled with drivel. But, what more can we epey when the IQ is about NEGATIVE 1023 eh ?

  5. Credibly accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women? Would these be the women whom pretty much fell apart under pressure. You got nothing pal. More lies from the left.

  6. Short explanation… the Senate was merely asserting its prerogative by withholding consent regarding Merrick Garland’s nomination to SCOTUS, thereby fulfilling the Constitutional obligation for consideration of SCOTUS nominations. There is no timeline or any admonition to consider any nomination in a timely manner.

  7. Oh, yes, have you forgotten about the “nuclear option” orchestrated by Harry Reid, one of the most corrupt members of Congress in history? Republicans didn’t use it until after Reid started it; let’s get the facts straight.

  8. Nothing the Republicans have done can compare to the treatment given by the Democrats to Judge Bork, Clarence Thomas, and Bret Kavanaugh. The Democrats crucified all of them on the altar of shameless political pandering, telling lies and making accusations that could not be verified. Republicans have never done such dirty tricks to any nominee of a Democrat President. Democrats have no scruples, no integrity; all they want is POWER at any cost.

  9. Vasu:
    Merrick Garland was just another far left liberal disguising himself as a moderate who’d if confirmed, try to turn this country into another third world communist toilet.
