(Tea Party PAC) – With the historic confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett the left is having an absolute meltdown. They actually believed that they had the right to dictate what the Republican-controlled Senate should do and now they think they have the right to call to expand the court and pack it full of liberal activist judges.
They’ll need to win a lot of elections for them to have even a remote shot at making this happen but that’s never stopped Democrats from making wild threats against our democracy. For supposedly being people who are so concerned about “fighting for” our democracy they sure are gung-ho to destroy it.
In response to the news of Justice Barrett’s confirmation, radical leftist House Representative Alexandreia Ocasio-Cortez, or as she likes to be called AOC, spouted off on Twitter late Monday calling for the expansion of the Supreme Court and claiming that Republicans don’t think that Democrats “have the stones to play hardball like they do.”
“Expand the court,” the freshman congresswoman Tweeted after the 52-48 vote to confirm Justice Barrett.
“Republicans do this because they don’t believe Dems have the stones to play hardball like they do,” Ocasio-Cortez added in a follow-up tweet. “And for a long time they’ve been correct. But do not let them bully the public into thinking their bulldozing is normal but a response isn’t.”
“There is a legal process for expansion,” she added.

It’s thoroughly comical to even suggest that Republicans don’t think the Democrats “have the stones” when for the past four years the Democrats have clearly shown they have the “stones” to obstruct our government by any means necessary simply because they hate the duly elected President. They’ve shown they have the “stones” to falsely accuse the sitting US President of crimes there is no evidence he committed and that he was set-up for by people within their own party. They have demonstrated that they have the “stones” to lie incessantly and spread misinformation all with the intent of hurting President Trump.
The Republicans know the Democrats have the “stones.” That has never been questioned. However, it’s the Democrats who apparently didn’t think Republicans had the “stones” to hold their ground and not be bullied into submission.
It’s even more entertaining that she added that the Republicans were “bulldozing” as if that isn’t exactly what the left has been doing since President Trump was elected. The Senate was within their Constitutional rights to move forward with the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett and the Democrats are just throwing one big temper tantrum.
Naturally, AOC found support from fellow “squad” member, the crooked Rep. Ilhan Omar, who retweeted her post, saying, “Remember that Republicans have lost 6 of the last 7 popular votes, but have appointed 6 of the last 9 justices,” she wrote. “By expanding the court we fix this broken system and have the court better represent the values of the American people.”
Clearly, Omar doesn’t have a clue about the values of the American people and also no education on the importance of the Electoral College. Why is it that it’s always the Democrats pushing to abolish the Electoral College? They don’t care about a single person outside of major cities along the coasts. Remember that on Election Day.
The call among Democrats to expand and pack the court is gaining momentum. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) said, “Oh, no! Somebody is talking about breaking the rules and packing the court. Well, of course, Article 3 of the Constitution doesn’t establish how many members of the Supreme Court there should be.”
He added, “I don’t want to pack the court. I don’t want to change the number. I don’t want to have to do that. But if all of this rule breaking is taking place, what does the majority expect?”
Rule breaking? This is the most dangerous aspect of the entire controversy. The left has managed to successfully convince themselves and millions of Americans that the Senate Republicans actually did something wrong. They cite the Republicans refusal to move forward with confirmation hearings for Merrick Garland but that decision was rooted in historical precedent.
The Democrats temper tantrum and threats are what is completely unfounded and absurd. If anybody is engaged in “rule breaking” it would be the left with their plans to politicize the Supreme Court by packing it with activists should Joe Biden steal the election.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Monday night that the Republicans may end up regretting their decision to confirm Justice Barrett.
“The Republican majority is lighting its credibility on fire. … The next time the American people give Democrats a majority in this chamber, you will have forfeited the right to tell us how to run that majority,” Schumer said.
When has the majority ever been told what to do by the minority party? That is a completely absurd and empty threat. If the American people give the Democrats a majority in the Senate, and that’s a big if, it goes without saying that what the Republicans want and think won’t matter a shred to them.
“My colleagues may regret this for a lot longer than they think,” he added.
No Chuck, the Democrats are going to regret their constant tantrums and attacks against the President and the American people who voted for him. The Democrats are not going to win a majority in the Senate and there’s a good chance they’ll lose their majority in the House.
Americans have had enough of the leftist bullying.
