Judicial Watch: The left wants to ‘blow up the Constitution’ with court packing

As Democrats press ahead with a court-packing scheme, many Americans are alarmed by what seems to be an attempt to replace a constitutional system of checks and balances with rule by one party. One conservative activist is calling out the power grab in blunt terms.

Tom Fitton, president of the conservative group Judicial Watch, warned that Democrats are trying to “blow up the Constitution” by turning the Supreme Court into a rubber stamp for their most extreme ideas.

Dems: Supreme Court losing legitimacy

Democrats began arguing that the Supreme Court was losing its “legitimacy” during Donald Trump’s presidency as it became more conservative.

Recently, Democrats have changed the definition of “court packing” to advance this argument in a more pointed form: as Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) framed the push, Democrats are “unpacking” the Court, not packing it.

To the contrary, Fitton said it is Democratic Party “extremists” who are threatening to corrupt what is supposed to be an apolitical institution.

Once the Court becomes nakedly political, there’s nothing stopping successive presidents from changing it to suit their agenda, he told Fox News.

“If you had a commission saying, ‘let’s blow up the Constitution,’ people would be nervous. When you talk about packing the Supreme Court, you’re talking about blowing up the Constitution,” he said.

Biden under “extreme” pressure

While Democrats have discussed court packing for some time, the threat grew more tangible recently when Nadler and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) introduced legislation to expand the Court last week.

“We can undo the damage that the Republicans have done by restoring balance. And we do it by adding four seats to the court to create a 13-member Supreme Court,” Markey said.

Biden, who refused to clarify where he stood on court-packing during his presidential campaign, has kept things equivocal with a “commission” to “study” the issue, but critics are calling this a political maneuver to provide a patina of legitimacy to what is plainly a power grab.

Fitton said that Biden may be trying to strike a balance between moderate and extreme factions, but his “commission” is a rather thin reed. As Fitton put it, Biden is “playing with fire” and unlikely to withstand “extreme” political pressure from the left.

“The pressure is extreme from the left to blow up the Supreme Court,” Fitton said. “Our Constitution is under attack with this commission, let’s be clear.”

  1. All Americans were warned about this back last year. President Trump also told everyone exactly what they were going to do. Every prediction is coming true. Eyes Wide Open!!!

  2. This is nothing more than a coup from the far left to change the constitution to meet Obama’s community organizer groups agenda.
    They the Democrats cheated in the election (2020) to get to this point!

  4. They are trying to gain the power that will allow them to control every American, they will make every decision in life for every American citizen, when you can work, where you can work, how much you will be paid, how much you will pay in Taxes, who will be your doctor, how much Vacation time you can have, what vehicle you may drive, etc. there is no end to their Power grab and control over our lives. We will work for THEM and report to THEM! Total DICTATORSHIP!! Sounds like a COMMUNIST REGIEM to me how about you?

    1. I totally agree and if America doesn’t wake soon we will be worse than China or Russia~~~~ I also bet that the politicians will sell America to the highest bidder and we the people will become their slaves!!! Remember people when you give away your rights you also become their slaves and how you live will be how they say, not you!!!!!!

    2. This has been there agenda for the last 70 years. Before Obama took office he tried to push for Sharia Law and then backed of saying it was too early, but he did everything he could to destroy our economy and push for unrest pushing racism. They were ready to creat New World order with Hilary, but when President Trump stepped in, they took off the gloves and have stolen the election and are doing everything they can to turn this Republic into a third world Country and to be total dictators and the sad part is, they have used the education system for decades to turn our young into Communists. They have been ignoring our Constitution and Bill of Rights and their intent is to get rid of them so they have full power. We, the people have the right to stop them. I fear we have sat back too long to stop them!!!

  5. Well, the Chinese Communist party has Hunter and Joe Biden in their back pockets. Giving them millions of dollars. Sure, Criminal Joe gives up his tax records and it has his tax records on there. But have they found out if he has any off-shore accounts with millions of dollars in them. How does somebody that gets paid $175,000 a year as a congressman have at least 3 million dollar homes and a lucrative checking account? He should be investigated for tax fraud. He acts just like a Dictator with a lot of pawns in his court, pulling the strings. It’s time we put a stop to the power grab of the left and put them all out of office.

  6. Agree with all posts. If we don’t get Piglosi, Schumer joe and the ho out of their stolen offices soon, our country will not last until the mid term elections, IF there will be one! They are dismantling our country piece by piece. Obama’s agenda. Something must be done to get him and Soros out of our country!


    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?


    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONFLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

    Members of the House

    Members of the Senate


    Keep in mind: SILENCE = ACCEPTANCE

    Please, don’t make an excuse not to make the calls, excuses as they say are like A-*****, we all got one!

  8. Give the Democrat’s till august America will be a clone of CCP.
    the only thing the Democrat’s can actually FIX are elections everything else they DESTROY

  9. I don’t know why everyone’s so upset with the Democrats wanting to add more Justices to the Supreme Court. Trump did it more than once. What I wish is that any Justice appointed would base their decisions on the merits of the case. But, instead they always base their decisions on what the party who put them there.wants. Actually, t his would make them all unworthy to sit on any court.

    1. Suzanne, you are not too bright, are you? Yes, Pres. Trump added justices when the total fell below nine. The first to fall was Antonin Scalia, a man who had COPD and went to bed with his CPAP mask on the shelf and a pillow on his face. I think this is why they wouldn’t confirm Merrit Garland, Obama’s appointee, because his death was very suspicious. I am sure he was murdered. He put Neil Gorsuch up for confirmation and he was confirmed. Then I believe someone retired, and Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed after an ugly hearing. When RBG died, Pres. Trump appointed Amy Coney Barrett and she was confirmed. Pres. Trump filled empty spots, he did not pack the court. There are still nine justices on SCOTUS.

  10. Schumer said pointing his ugly stupid finger to President Trump “you will be sorry for this” Schumer is only a Senator, not a President of which he would never qualify. The moronic left will lose, I have faith that most Americans are very awake, not woke, BUT AWAKE TO HOW CLOSE THIS COUNTRY HAS COME TO LOSING FREEDOM. THANK GOD FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP.

  11. I don’t like Chucky Schumer, he needs to be removed from his stolen position. He’s a big idiot. Hides behind Pelosi’s skirt. He needs to really know what it is like to live in communism or even visit a communist country. It might open his eyes. But maybe not.

  12. Need 2-3 million armed march on DC. Round up ALL the democraps traitors and hang them on the front porch of the capitol building.

  13. I hope the American people see what the Democrats are trying to do to our country and its laws before Biden makes everything so bad that it can’t be fixed like Trump had it when he was in control. We have a brain sick man in control of our Country and a Woman vice president that doesn’t know the first thing about running a country that may be in charge in the future . I do believe that the Democrats are trying to change everything as fast as they can before the people realize they have been had and its to late to do anything about it.

  14. Dictator Obama is responsible for everything wrong with our country. He destroyed race relations in this country. Through his deceit and lies he turned millions of people against Law Enforcement. He did his best to destroy the Christian faith in our country. He down sized our military to a very dangerous level and put people in charge of our law enforcement agencies who hate America. Turned his back on our allies and bowed to our enemies.
