This Is the Very Definition of “Gaslighting”

Nadler: ‘We’re Not Packing The Court. We’re Unpacking It.’ | The Daily Wire

On Thursday, defending the plan he has sponsored to pack the Supreme Court with additional justices so that the Democrats have control over the Court, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) insisted, “Some people say we’re packing the Court. We’re not packing the Court; we’re unpacking it.”

The Democrats must change the rules anytime they lose. Their end goal is to change the rules enough so that they never lose again.

Court packing is a stupid idea, though.

Look, I’m not saying there’s something magical about the number 9 and that we must have 9 Supreme Court justices. I’m sure we can make just about any relatively low number work. It used to be 7 up until about 100 years ago.

But packing the court for political reasons is doomed to failure and will only result in escalation. So, the Democrats add four more Justices in 2021. Then the Republicans take back Congress & The White House in 2024, so they respond by adding four more Justices in 2025. Where does it end?

I’m really hoping saner heads prevail on this one, but sanity is not in great supply in Washington, D.C. right now.
