Liberal Profs Launch Campaign To Pack Supreme Court, Other Fed Courts After Kavanaugh Confirmation

Christine Blasey Ford and the rest of the DIMocrats REFUSE to understand that Ford lied and Kavanaugh will sit on the Supreme Court until he’s 85!………….Papa Mike

Via Fox News:

Less than a month after the confirmation of Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh entrenched a 5-4 conservative majority on the Supreme Court, leading law professors are urging Democrats to expand the size of all of the nation’s federal courts and pack them with liberals.

Far-left Harvard professors Mark Tushnet and Laurence Tribe are lending their support to the so-called “1.20.21 Project,” which was launched by political science professor Aaron Belkin on Wednesday to counter “Republican obstruction, theft and procedural abuse” of the federal judiciary.

That rhetoric reflects the professors’ apparent surprise after Democrats lost the 2016 presidential election, which they had hoped would allow the party to continue appointing liberal judges and justices. In 2016, when Hillary Clinton was leading in all major polls in her bid for the presidency, Tushnet definitively declared in a blog post that conservatives were the “losers in the culture wars.”

He wrote that liberal judges who “no longer have to be worried about reversal by the Supreme Court” could be useful in marginalizing those Republican “losers,” whom he compared to the defeated Japanese in World War II or the Confederacy in the Civil War.

The heated language also highlights what liberals have characterized as the unfair treatment of President Obama’s failed nominee to the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland. In 2016, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, refused to hold a hearing or vote on Garland, saying a lame-duck president shouldn’t be able to appoint a justice in an election year. Garland didn’t have enough support in the GOP-held Senate to win confirmation.

At Kavanaugh’s ceremonial swearing-in ceremony earlier this month, President Trump led a standing ovation for McConnell, whom he called a “great” leader who has done an “incredible job for the American people.” Under McConnell and Trump, Republicans have now confirmed 26 federal appellate judges and two Supreme Court justices. (Kavanaugh’s rise to the Supreme Court creates a new vacancy on the influential D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, where he had served for 12 years.)

That fast pace of conservative judicial appointments has upended and frustrated some of the assumptions of liberal law professors like Tushnet, who wrote just two years ago: “Right now more than half of the judges sitting on the courts of appeals were appointed by Democratic presidents, and – though I wasn’t able to locate up-to-date numbers – the same appears to be true of the district courts.”

Liberal academics have long floated the possibility of flooding the bench with Democrats, although the 1.20.21 Project is their most organized effort to date. For example, another far-left law professor, Indiana Unversity’s Ian Samuel, wrote on Twitter as soon as then-Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement in June that Democrats should “[p]ack the courts” as urgently as they should “abolish ICE.”
