Jerry Newcombe on The Threat of Court Packing

One of the most substantial issues of Election 2020 is the Left’s pledge to pack the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) if they win – a scheme neither Joe Biden nor Kamala Harris will disavow. Most people don’t realize how seriously this could undermine our entire democratic republic.

In one fell swoop, they could undermine the United States, which President Lincoln labeled the “the last best hope of mankind.”

The founders gave us checks and balances in the government so that no one group would have too much power.

But we have already seen in the last half of the last century an abuse of power by one branch of government, the Supreme Court – until (for the most part) William Rehnquist became Chief Justice in 1986, thanks to Ronald Reagan. Rehnquist was able to at least slow the tyranny to some degree.

Beginning in the 1950s, the court of Earl Warren (appointed by Eisenhower) and the court of Warren Burger (appointed by Nixon), often trumped the will of the people in many significant cases.

•They removed the Ten Commandments from the schools and later were shocked when kids without any values violated the “Thou shalt not kill” command that they never were exposed to.
