Biden increases pressure on Chief Justice Roberts with launch of court reform commission

One of Donald Trump’s greatest achievements during his presidency was his appointment of three constitutionalist justices to the Supreme Court of the United States. Those appointments, however, put Chief Justice John Roberts in a difficult place as one of the more centrist judges on the bench.

Roberts has been targeted by the newly-minted President Joe Biden as the key to moderating the conservative influence on the court, and the Daily Caller’s Ellie Gardey noted on Saturday that Biden’s new commission to study Supreme Court “reform” is a “warning shot” to Roberts to keep those Trump justices in line. 

SCOTUS “reform”

Despite months of obfuscating on questions of whether he supported the leftist notion of packing the Supreme Court, Joe Biden announced this week that he’ll dedicate resources to exploring methods of SCOTUS reform.

“The President remains committed to an expert study of the role and debate over reform of the court and will have more to say in the coming weeks,” a White House official told Fox News on Thursday.

Biden’s commission of scholars has 180 days to come up with a solution for the “out of whack” court system.

Gardey wrote that Biden’s commission is “a thinly veiled threat to Chief Justice John Roberts in the form of a new commission that will study Supreme Court reform.”

“The threat is clear: if Roberts doesn’t limit the court’s conservative influence on key issues like abortion, gun rights and immigration, Democrats will pack the court,” Gardey explained.

Roberts has tended towards the moderate side of most hot-button issues, but with liberal justices now in the minority, political pressure for him to temper the constitutional influence is rising.

Veiled language

As Gardey pointed out, Biden’s court reform commission is billed as a bipartisan initiative to generally study court reform, keeping the proposal from appearing as an outright threat to pack the courts.

But the intention is clear: “In other words, “Nice court ya got there, it would be a shame if something happened to it,” Gardey snarked.

Biden has wisely refused to come out in support of or in opposition to the notion of expanding the number of Supreme Court judges in order to play both sides of the aisle until enough support is garnered for the leftist plot.

“The reality is that Biden’s commission is a clean handed way to advance the court-packing plot, an intimidation technique to erode the separation of powers between the judicial and executive branches in order to advance Democratic political power,” Gardey concluded. “So far, the Democratic threat of court-packing is working, and brilliantly so.”

  1. Liberal Democrats are not satisfied by controlling the legislative and executive branch of government but want to control the third judicial branch as well. Wm Lee

    1. That’s an abuse of power. There is NO Consent of the Governed for packing the Supreme Court. We the People will IMPEACH & REMOVE Democrats from power before we allow Dictator Joe & Kamala to ab

        1. I definitely believe Obama is Joe Biden’s ventriloquist…everything he is doing and everything he is allowing to happen is coming from the worst president (until now) in our history. It’s Deja Vue–we have lived through all this before!! — but now, on steroids!! Obama was the first illegitimate president in our history due to the fact he was not a US citizen, Biden is illegitimate because he was not duly elected but illegally elected by fraud and deception!

      1. How long should we hold out? How many of the God-given rights, supposedly “secured” by the Bill of Rights, should we allow to be stolen by “our” government?

  2. The entire history of Biden is to govern as a “ruler” and not as a positive force for the United States. This coupled with his tendency to work to enrich himself and his family is clearly detailed by the actions of his son and brother. They have all lined their own pockets by their “Ruler” mentality and at the risk to the United States and its citizens. roof of these facts may be seen in his actions of his first week in office.

      1. My, my! What an a thinly veiled overstep! One is constrained to say, “Just who do you think you are?!! You were never commissioned to engage in such muscle-bound shenanigans with our government system! What do you think ‘we, the people ‘ are going to tolerate from you? Careful, dear Sir! Cease this “trashing” operation or you will lose your base and your job! Just a matter of time.

    1. This has to stop we are losing our Constitution laws and we are doing it willfully. It is time we stand for your Morales and standards God gave us. If we don’t step up our country will become Communist. Wake up people. Biden is a Trojan being led by Wicked Evil people!

        1. I agree with you Impeach Biden and all connected-partnered with him in JESUS Name. “O LORD, The GOD to whom Vengeance belongs. O GOD of VENGEANCE, let YOUR GLORIOUS JUSTICE BE SEEN! Arise O JUDGE of the Earth. Sentence the proud to the Penalties they Deserve.” (Psalm 94) I send these WORDS of GOD to MANIFEST throughout this DNC-Democrats Joe Hunter Biden-family members-money laundering, Harris, Obama-Administration and all involved with these Incredible wicked deeds. I loose GOD’S RIGHT HAND TO CRUSH STRIKE ALL STRONGMAN-RULER spirits, Jezebel, antichrist, principalities powers, territorial, antichrist, Baal, ALL connected spirits that are operating against GOD’S PLANS-AGENDA for America-Israel-Earth I command all these spirits to be bound and UPROOTED by GOD’S BURNING ANGER and FURY NOW. I loose GOD’S 12 LEGIONS of destruction angels to protect shield Pres Trump-ALL GENUINE-Senators-Congress-Supporters-Politicians-News Commentators, ALL family members, possessions.

No one can Reverse MY ACTIONS.” (Isaiah 43) I give Glory and Praise to MARVELOUS BEAUTIFUL ALMIGHTY GOD!! I decree in JESUS NAME!!

          1. You might want to think that through a little farther.if you impeach Biden, then what have you got?

      1. I agree with everything you’ve said so now what we got to do is figure out like you said how to get this fixed we know voting doesn’t get anywhere it’s all corrupt how do we fix it how do we take back our country from these idiots

        1. We will get these evil works fixed, DESTROYED by GOD’S JUSTICE and FAIRNESS NOW, ALWAYS. “Can unjust leaders claim that GOD is on their side-leaders who PERMIT injustice by their laws? They attack the righteous and condemn the innocent to death. But The LORD is my fortress; my GOD is a MIGHTY ROCK where I can hide. GOD will make the sins of Evil people fall back upon them. GOD WILL DESTROY them for their sins. The LORD our GOD WILL DESTROY THEM.” (Psalm 94) I send these WORDS of GOD to MANIFEST throughout The DNC-Democrats-Joe-Hunter Biden-Harris, Pelosi, Soros, Tech CEO’ and all involved,connected to these Rebels. GOD’S destruction, Consuming fire🔥to UPROOT ALL has been Released. “GOD’S KINGDOM RULES OVER ALL” I decree in JESUS NAME and AUTHORITY!!

        2. Well, I am sure they have plenty on Biden, Harris, and Pelosi— if they would get off their bottoms and act on it!

    2. Biden is not right in the head. He is a clear and present danger to our Country and the American people. He is an illegal prez.. Biden needs to leave the Supreme Court alone.

      1. You really think he comprehends what is in the Executive Orders? He just signs as he isn’t the puppeteer! That’s why they kept him in the basement!
        Harris is just hopping to get in there — of course, she should be impeached for inciting violence and insurrection.

  4. Regardless of what Roberts and other government leaders do, the liberal progressive democrat communists will pack the court and more to destroy the Constitutional Republic of the USA. Only GOD Almighty can save the USA!

  5. I’m starting to wonder why he needs a senate a congress and the supreme court. They appear to be a waste of money as king Biden or perhaps king Obama are just a big mess of executive orders. We are required to give him our money to spend and shut up where it goes. Much practice for China polices. Aren’t we lucky?

  6. Get RID of BIDEN, HARRIS, PELOSI, and SCHUMER! They have all committed impeachable offenses. OBAMA is running the show! MAYBE now ROBERTS will wake up and UNDERSTAND his Chicken-S–t non-actions to do his job is going to cost him as well as our Country!
    A PLEA TO THE DECENT CONGRESS and SENATE, PLEASE STEP UP AND NOT LET PARTY AFFILIATIONS DESTROY THIS COUNTRY. THE VAST MAJORITY OF YOU ARE RESPECTFULLY APPRECIATED, WORK TOGETHER AND GET THE SELFISH MINORITY OUT OF OFFICE. 2022 VOTERS WILL DO THE REST!!!

  7. For those of you who voted Biden in, all I can say is, Say your goodbye to America as we once knew it and ….thanks for nothing.

    1. AMEN! I hope those who voted for Biden Harris are the first to loose their jobs but it will probably be mostly working conservatives! Disgusting and evil!

  8. Biden and he’s administration needs to be thrown into the VOLCANO ….and let “PELE” Goddess of fire 🔥 handle it.!!! GOOD BYE JOE YOU GOTTA GO (the KAHUNA has spoken.

  9. There is one solution, and that is Chief Justice Roberts conduct an investigative action against the fraud that was committed throughout the entire U.S. for the 2020 election. The proof and evidence is totally exposed and out in the open. The SCOTUS need to take the action immediately denouncing in its entirety the 2020 election in every state. The people behind the fraudulent election is the entire Democratic Party and the current illegal administration, including the corrupt FBI, and the last AG.

    1. G. Wilson…agree 100 percent. Judge Roberts has screwed up repeatedly on the court and his refusal to hear the Texas case is perhaps the most egregious so far. (Other screwups include the Connecticut “land grab” case, numerous 2nd Amendment cases, the “Wayfair” case allowing states to collect sales tax on internet purchases from firms not having a presence in a state, and more….Roberts must have flunked geography since state boundaries have been in place for years, some (Virginia) date back 400 years or more….and ebay and other firms refuse to point out this justice’s stupidity…

  10. Convention of States is the Constitutional reset we need. Go there to help and see progress. Remember we are ruled by Constitution not Dictators!

  11. Judge Roberts needs to “stand his ground” and refuse to do anything for Mr. Biden. The judicial branch is independent and needs to stay that way. Mr. Biden can go pound sand.

    1. Now Fred, let’s have our ducks in a row before we go hot. Let’s step back a pace and contemplate the consequences of Our actions. They will affect too many people to be rash.
      We do understand your anxiety and frustration with this awful mess. No, really! We do! But, just be cool. Believe me, their time is coming.
      Remember, there is this thing called prayer.

  12. Roberts isn’t going to do a thing. They got the goods on him, so Obama is pulling the strings. Obama, Clinton, Biden, Roberts and many others are sick. They have deep problems within themselves!

  13. Bipartisan commission to study the Supreme Court……if there were no hidden agenda then why the need for the bipartisan commission. For the President to threaten the Supreme Court is a travesty…..King BIden feels he the power to Rule the Country. The Supreme Justices were appointed and approved by Congress, they do not serve the President, they uphold the Constitution.
    Just because the Left (Democrats) aren’t in the majority they want to change the court to suit themselves. Chief Justice Roberts along with the other Justices need to appeal to the American People to stand by them as they are under attack by the far left. If BIden continues along this line and tries to change the court then every President in the future will do the same, it must stop before it goes too far.

  14. biden is not a man just a senile problem to America , fill out the impeachment papers for criminal biden and the phony

  15. ” out if whack court system”???? It was just fine when the liberal left had control of the Supreme Court. This mess has got to stop. IT IS BORDERING ON INSANITY!!!!!

    I am terrified.

  17. I’m thinking all these ignorant democrats need to go back and read the constitution whether they like it, believe in it or not. It is the law of our Republic and needs to be paid attention to. The Supreme Court is an equal and separate branch of the Federal Government who doesn’t answer to the President or Congress. It was put in place to keep the other two branches in check. John Roberts needs to take a step back as well and if he doesn’t have the balls, he should step down.

  18. I am a non-denominational CHRISTian that goes to Calvary Chapel and listens to the international CHRISTian Satellite Network CSNRADIO .com SEVEN days a week especially Monday – Friday. I even listened to it in Germany 🇩🇪 and Hungary 🇭🇺 !

    I LIVED IN, not just visited communist China 🇨🇳 in 2010 . So I KNOW how bad it is to live under communism and I am doing EVERYthing I can here to stop it from coming here. Venezuela WAS a wealthy, prosperous country until it became communist as a 3rd world country with people eating out of garbage cans !!! In China, I attended a university that not only can one get a master’s degree in Marxism, but it had a statue of Chairman Mao in its front yard.
    ( I was fortunate to stumble upon ONE toilet at the university. Every other restroom had stinky porcelain holes in the ground we had to squat over. Upon entering the front entrance to the university and near the plush 28 story building I lived in, the stench was so bad, you had to hold your nose. Electrical wiring hung from the ceiling of the two buildings too. )

    To quote Eskify, “ Through communist policies he starved millions of people, possibly as many as 80 million. He killed any intellectuals who disagreed with him, he put people in labour camps, and condoned beating and stoning people to death in struggle sessions.“

    I saw the plans of the left on their own letterhead paper to murder us, especially the seniors and disabled, and the vaccines 💉 is just one of the ways. ( To build your immunity, eat foods made from GOD like fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, and walnuts. Take a healthy vitamin-mineral drink, Zinc, Elderberry, Vitamin D-3, and Vitamin A daily. Get 8 hours of sleep daily and exercise. I don’t wear a mask because it’s unhealthy unless I am forced to in which case I wear an accepted face shield so that I can breathe AND I am trying to make a political and health statement by NOT wearing one. We are NOT cows waiting for the slaughter. We are humans who can reason. ) Read the first sentence of the Georgia Guidestones also known as Georgia Stonehenge supported by the left elitists .

  19. Is it not against the law for a president to try to influence a court. The government is set up to stop this. That is why there are independent parts of our government. Also wouldn’t the supreme court have the right to say this is unconstitutional.

  20. As I see it , here is our situation. The 2020 election was not President Trump’s election. It was our election for WE THE PEOPLE to choose our national leader. OUR election was rigged and stolen from WE THE PEOPLE ! It is up to WE THE PEOPLE to do something aout it ! The for sale guy that currently occupies our White House is not our legitimate president. He did not win our election fair and square by our legitimate votes. Now , WE THE PEOPLE , must do something about it ! Perhaps a national strike ? Or 300 million lawsuits ?
    Although the temptation is great , I do not advocate an armed revolt as many innocent people will be harmed by that .
    However , I am reminded of something that happened to me. My home was raided and numerous items were stolen. I KNEW who had done it ! So , I went to the city police ( who are supposed to give us help ( or so I thought ) ) and told them what had happened. The city police REFUSED to do anything about it . So , I got satisfaction by taking matters into my own hands. Not as good as being able to do it legally through the court. I never got any of my property back including a few items of great sentimental value to me . But I did get value back in kind. In fact I still do because I never forget !
    The California courts have at various times declared that the votes and the will of it’s citizens as null and void. The United States Supreme Court should be able to do that with a illegitimate election. And order another election. Perhaps we only need enough citizens to appear at the Supreme Court ? WE THE PEOPLE must do something. Are we men and women ? Or are we obedient mice ??

  21. I agree with you Impeach Biden and all connected-partnered with him in JESUS Name. “O LORD, The GOD to whom Vengeance belongs. O GOD of VENGEANCE, let YOUR GLORIOUS JUSTICE BE SEEN!

    1. You have no control over The Lord God Allmighty to loose his right hand, You pray and humbly ask him you have no right to demand him to do that.. Be careful how you demand God that you loosed him.. You are not in control over God….be careful how you pray & demand.

  22. First, I suggest to impeach Pelosi because she represents we the people in the Congress but she showed many of her unconstitutional behaviors. So she is not deserved in the Congresss, must remove her from the Congress
    Next, Joe Biden has to be impeached

  23. We now have a corrupt politicians, corrupt judges and our supreme court’s is useless. Don’t deserve being paid tax dollars. So why even have a supreme court.

  24. I have limited funds and no money available to contribute. However: HOW CAN MITCH MCCONNELL, MITT ROMNEY, THE SUPREME COURT (and others) BE SO BLIND AND IGNORANT?IT IS “INTUITIVELY CLEAR TO EVEN THE MOST CASUAL OBSERVER” THAT THIS ELECTION WAS FRAUGHT WITH FRAUD TO OVERRIDE THE LEGITIMATE VOTES!!!!FURTHERMORE; THE SENATE AND HOUSE WERE DERELICT IN THEIR DUTY TO VERIFY ALL LEGITIMATE VOTES WERE COUNTED, AND ENSURE THAT ALL NON-LEGITIMATE VOTES WERE REJECTED!!!!I fully support President Donald J Trump, recognize he truly loves this country and stands firmly for what is right, for the Constitution and for We The People of The United States of America. There is a very huge silent majority who recognizes that We as well as He are under attack by the radical left. Democ’rats. (Which is what the Democrat Party needs to be renamed as that name accurately reflects their Attitude and Hate for all that is good for our nation.) Democ’rats should never be referred to as being the Democratic Party, because there isn’t anything in their platform or conduct that indicates they adhere to Democratic principles. Anyone who refers to them as being Democratic or being The Democratic Party is either ignorant or lacks even an ounce of intelligence. Just make sure as Republican members/candidates for the Senate and House you will fully support and stand with President Donald J Trump, truly love this country and stand firmly for what is right for the Constitution and We The People of The United States of America. If you do, I am confident the huge silent majority will elect/retain you to represent them. DO IT!

  25. The only way to fix the Court is to get rid of all Democrats – Biden’s hands are tied he can’t bully the Court

  26. The democrats want to remove all opposition to their plans to be able dictate our democracy. (kind of ironic isn’t it)

  27. What i don’t realize is if truth be told how you’re no longer really a lot more well-favored than you may be now.
    You’re very intelligent. You understand thus significantly when it comes to this matter, produced me
    for my part imagine it from so many numerous angles.
    Its like men and women don’t seem to be involved except it is something to do with Girl gaga!
    Your personal stuffs outstanding. At all times maintain it up! https://parbriz-auto-bucuresti.ro/parbriz-dacia.html
