Ruth Bader Ginsburg Not A Fan Of AOC Backed SCOTUS Stunt

AOC isn’t very good at making friends.

You know there’s real trouble in paradise when a hardcore liberal icon like SCOTUS Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg opposes a measure backed by the current darling of the Democratic Party, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

It seems that AOC just knows how to push everyone’s buttons in all the wrong ways, doesn’t it? It’s almost like this is her superpower.

Leftists are now fighting to make sure that conservatives don’t have a majority ruling the Supreme Court by employing court-packing, which RBG says is a horrible, horrible idea.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire:

Speaking with NPR, Ginsburg denounced past attempts to pack the Supreme Court, such as when President Franklin Roosevelt attempted to do so in the 1930s.

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

As noted by LifeNews, another liberal on the court, Justice Breyer, agrees that court-packing would be problematic as well. America largely agrees with both Ginsburg and Breyer, with a recent Rasmussen poll indicating that Americans would rather see term limits on the Supreme Court before they see court-packing.

According to a new Rasmussen Report poll, only 27 percent of voters support increasing the number of justices on the Supreme Court. A whopping 51 percent are against such a measure with 22 percent undecided.

AOC isn’t the only person who is into the idea of court-packing. Sen. Bernie Sanders recently proposed a version of this horrific idea at the Democratic Presidential debate held several weeks back.

Sanders said, “I do not believe in packing the court. We’ve got a terrible 5-4 majority conservative court right now. But I do believe constitutionally we have the power to rotate judges to other courts and that brings in new blood into the Supreme Court and a majority I hope that will understand that a woman has a right to control her own body and that corporations cannot run the United States of America.”

Just before getting elected to Congress, AOC had this to say about court-packing:

“I think that we take back the House, we take back the Senate, we take back the presidency, and we pack the Supreme Court of the United States of America.”

Let’s just keep things how they are, shall we? It seems to be a system that’s at least somewhat working for the moment, no need to mess it up.

Save conservative media!

Black Lives Matter Activists And Pro-Cop Group Get In Confrontation In Brooklyn

Published

on

Pro-police activists clashed with Black Lives Matter protesters over the weekend in Bay Bridge Brooklyn, which happens to be an area where a lot of law enforcement officers tend to live. Videos of the incident were plastered all over social media over Saturday and Sunday, which featured a number of brawls exploding between the “Back the Blue” group and BLM activists on Fourth Avenue and 65th Street. Things got so heated that police were required to put a stop to things. Five individuals were arrested. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Massive police presence in Bay Ridge. Bike police shove the crowd, but the protesters do not disperse,” tweeted NYC Protest Updates 2020 (@protest_nyc). One video features an officer being hit with an egg, and other videos show protesters blocking a police vehicle with an arrested BLM protester inside from moving through a crowd. However, the fracas escalated when one BLM protester’s confrontation with an NYPD officer ended with the protester being tased, handcuffed, and arrested. “The NYPD no longer enforces the law. Cops are NOT allowed to make these arrest because Mayor DeBlasio prohibits arrest & encourages attacks, calling it peaceful protests he lies. When NYPD retreats the violence will come to YOU the people. BEWARE you’ve been WARNED!,” Ed Mullins, President of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, tweeted Sunday. New York City Councilman Justin Brannan who is a representative for the area spoke out against the violence on Twitter. He also announced he’ll meet with the NYPD at the 60th precinct to talk about the constant protests and the NYPD response. Things are getting so out of hand all across our great nation. People are so divided and full of hatred for one another. All of this is the result of propaganda pushed by the progressive movement who would…

Criminal Investigation Launched Into DA Who Charged Officers In Rayshard Brooks Shooting Expands

Published

on

The criminal investigation into Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard, the man who is responsible for charging police officers involved in the shooting of Rayshard Brooks, is being expanded by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, as new questions come to light concerning the grand jury subpoenas his office issued in the Brooks case. Chris Carr, Georgia Attorney General, asked the GBI to look further into Howard after Carr discovered information about the subpoenas. Here’s what we know so far via The Daily Wire: Howard issued grand jury subpoenas directing the Atlanta Police Department to turn over its “open investigation regarding Garrett Rolfe and the use of force incident.” Fox 5 Atlanta reports: The subpoena required that the documents be turned over for the “Grand Jury, June/July term on the of 14th day of July.” Other grand jury subpoenas were issued for phone and surveillance camera videos. Fox 5 reported that the subpoenas were issued while the grand jury was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. The issuing of grand jury subpoenas while there is no grand jury could possibly be considered “an ethical or possibly criminal issue,” according to legal professionals interviewed by Fox 5. Gable Cino, a law professor who specializes in prosecutorial misconduct, spoke with the news network, saying, “It would be a violation of criminal law to make a knowingly false statement or misrepresentation in the subpoena which is a document that has been issued.” Howard is no stranger to controversy and possible corruption. The GBI had already launched an investigation into the district attorney earlier this year concerning a “mysterious salary supplement negotiated between Howard and then Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.” The negotiation directed a whopping $250,000 over a three-year period into a non-profit organization that was headed up by Howard’s office. Of that cash, Howard…
