Biden takes the first step towards packing the Supreme Court

In a move that surprised exactly no one, President Joe Biden has taken the first step towards packing the Supreme Court in favor of progressives.

The White House announced Friday the establishment of a commission to "assess" Supreme Court "reform." The commission will be led by two former Obama officials, and was launched after Biden received "pressure from activists pushing for more seats to alter the ideological balance of the court," according to the New York Times

The President has been threatening such a commission for months. Ever since the death of Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg, the radical left has been pushing to expand the number of justices and reclaim the court's progressive balance of power. Now it looks like they might be getting their wish.

The mainstream media likes to claim that the president hasn't take a firm position on court packing. Many Democrats, including current Justice Stephen G. Breyer, have warned that packing the Supreme Court will destroy faith in the court's objectivity and make it just another political body. 

But let's take a quick look at Biden's own words. When he first proposed this commission during a 60 Minutes interview back in October, here's what he said:

“I will ask them to, over 180 days, come back to me with recommendations as to how to reform the court system, because it’s getting out of whack,” he told Norah O’Donnell of CBS News.

"It's getting out of whack."

If Joe Biden believes something is wrong with the Supreme Court, it stands to reason he would want it fixed. And the only thing he's ever talked about is the fact that there are more conservative justices on the court than liberal ones.

The mainstream media may not be able to read between the lines, so we'll do it for them. Joe Biden wants to pack the Supreme Court, and he'll push to do it as soon as the radical progressives in his party give him enough cover.

There's only one way to stop the court-packing agenda once and for all: an Article V Convention of States. A Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments. These amendments can limit the power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government -- including Congress and the Supreme Court. 

Everyone cares so much about the Supreme Court because it's given itself an enormous amount of power. If we can limit its power via constitutional amendment, there will be far less incentive to change the number of justices. 

In addition, a Convention of States could also propose an amendment limiting Congress's power to change the number of justices. An amendment reading, "Congress shall make no law altering the composition of the Supreme Court" would effectively end the threat of court-packing once and for all.

Over five million Americans have voiced their support for the Article V option, and 15 states are on board. To join the movement and fight back against Joe Biden's radical agenda, sign the petition below!

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
