Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental restructuring if justices do not take steps to "heal" the court in the near future.

The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court's conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.

"The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it," the brief said. "Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be 'restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.'"

"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." - Sir Winston Churchill

RBG must be not doing well. This sounds like the left laying the groundwork for an upheaval if she dies and gets replaced by a Trump appointee.

Let me see if I understand this......... We have three separate but equal branches of government in this country, all designed to provide checks and balances for each other branch--------- and liberals from the legislative branch are threatening to "restructure" the judicial branch because they don't like the checks and balances?


Go **** yourself comrades.

More evidence of how far left the dems have gone. How does a party who controls only 1/6 of the federal government make these kinds of demands?

So the legislative branch is trying to threaten the judicial branch into following emotions rather than reason and the law? I gotta give them credit . . . they are tenacious and never give up.

Of course the Democrats want "impartiality" as long as it favors them. If not, they will "fix it".

What are they going to do? Stack the court? Impeach justices?

They don't have to votes to do either. Now they can try to drag justices through the mud ala Kavanaugh, but dragging innocent people through the mud is a really good way to alienate people. Even Ginsberg who is a fruitcake dying corpse thinks Kavanaugh is a good guy.

What good could possibly come from threatening and goading the Supreme Court? Are these people really that ignorant of the Constitution and US law? I mean most of those idiots are lawyers.

I just don't know anymore. I always think well the Dems were really stupid to do that, that means they will calm down for a bit. Nope nope nope. It's like, hold my beer, the Senate can top that by threatening the SC.

Wow! Dems shamelessly and self-righteously threatening the SC! Good lord, the howling and reeeeing if Rs did this. They can go straight to Hell. They are laying the ground work for SC packing in the near future.

SCOTUS has always been the Dem Holy Grail to absolute power

They were soooo close to winning with a Hilldawg presidency that could finally give them their ultimate dream: a majority activist lib court that would toss the constitution in the garbage and make Congress a powerless vestigial organ and proceed to rule by fiat and declare everything Dems want the law of the land and declaring all rights and freedoms invalid

They know RBG can't hold on forever and are not going to let Trump keep total power out of their hands for another generation

They are determined to simply stack the court with liberals until they can get the banana republic they want

This is the start of them pushing to expand/stack the SC.

Standing by for "what we really meant by that" when questioned harshly by the media.

Crossfire hurricane didn't work, impeachment isn't working, so I guess it's time to move on to stacking the courts.

I think it will be the war of liberal aggression or something to do with their overarching socialist views.

Seriously, where the f/ck do they get off thinking they can talk like this to an equal branch of the gov't. These half-wits need a refresher on our constitutional Republic. GTFO!

Congress is by far more f'd up then the other branches and it's not even close. They need to STFU and fix their own mess and not be threatening the judicial.

The wounds inflicted by the Left which they blame on Trump and 'his White nationalists'. Then they can see themselves as heroes and claim moral superiority.

"Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be 'restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.'"

What they really mean is so they can restructure it to increase the influence of leftist politics. It's so transparent it's absurd.

The Democratic senators' brief was filed in the case of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. City of New York, which dealt with legal limitations on where gun owners could transport their licensed, locked, and unloaded firearms. They are urging the court to stay out of the case brought by the NRA-backed group, claiming that because the city recently changed the law to ease restrictions, the push to the Supreme Court is part of an "industrial-strength influence campaign" to get the conservative majority to rule in favor of gun owners.
So you see, if you don't rule the way the Dems want you to rule regarding gun control issues, well we may have to take steps to make you less equal.

This is really outlandish and utterly unacceptable.

It's one thing to make threatening comments about what should happen with the court is you are just John Q Public, but as elected representatives it is outrageous.

I actually agree with the Democrats here. At least with the principle that the court is not well - because it is not.

The court should not be a right or left leaning court in any form or fashion. The court should be a Constitutional Court, without any allegiance to conservative or liberal political views. Everything should be compared to the Constitution and determined constitutional or unconstitutional based soley on that document and nothing else. No precedence, no SJW movement, what anatomy or skin color or heritage you have should be of no bearing - it either is allowed by the Constitution or it is not. Plain and simple.
