For the last several years, rumors swirled around Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s retirement.
Ginsburg’s poor health fueled speculation she could step down at any time.
And now Ruth Bader Ginsburg got hit with some news about her future that she never expected to hear.
Many political insiders believe Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg hung on despite being incapable of serving on the bench in hopes a Democrat would win the 2020 election and replace her.
But even replacing Ginsburg with another leftist does not solve the problem that conservatives would still outnumber liberals five to four on the Supreme Court.
Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino warned Americans that should Democrats win the White House and control of the Senate in November, the left will not settle for just replacing Ginsburg.
Severino predicted that the Democrats would pack the court with additional leftists to grant themselves a permanent majority on the Supreme Court.
“They’re pretty clear on this. They simply have said [they] don’t want to wait for the actual constitutional process of getting new Supreme Court justices when a president appoints them and they’re confirmed by the Senate. [They] need justices on there who are going to vote with all of their liberal policies,” Severino told the Breitbart News Daily radio show.
And in fact, many Democrat presidential contenders such as South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg campaigned on packing the court with anywhere from two to six additional Supreme Court justices to ensure a liberal majority.
Severino explained that Democrats understood that a conservative majority would serve as a constitutional check and balance on a potential Democrat president and Congress so the left will eliminate any obstacles to imposing socialism in America through court-packing.
“Courts have been willing and happy to enact those [left-wing] policy goals from the bench,” Severino continued. “Now that we finally have a critical mass of justices who are committed first and foremost to the Constitution, and to making sure that the laws are followed as written, they’re saying all we need to just expand the number of justices.”
Severino told the Breitbart audience that this was not wild speculation.
A Democrat-controlled Senate and president stacking the court with multiple left-wing justices was a mere formality.
“They will do it if they win the White House [and] Congress in the fall. They think [they’re] going to expand the Supreme Court until [they] have enough justices to have a liberal majority, and then when they have that rock solid majority on the Supreme Court that will rubber stamp any liberal policy, there will be no checks [on] any unconstitutional actions,” Severino concluded.
