The Democrats are sore losers so they try to change the rules every time they suffer major setbacks.
With the Dem party in disarray and chaos reigning supreme they have good reason to panic.
Trump and Mitch McConnell, through shrewd political moves and taking advantage of Dem blunders, have reshaped the federal judiciary for the next decade.
Trump has also guaranteed a conservative majority on the Supreme Court for a generation and that is before he wins another term.
When he wins – if you saw the Dem debate last night you know he will – he will get a few more Supreme Court picks while at the same time he will literally change the balance of power on the Appellate Courts and remove them from liberal control.
So the Dems in a panic have a new plan to stop this – term limits on the Supreme Court.
From Fox News:
Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday openly called for 18-year term limits for Supreme Court justices, lending his support to a push that has gained steam among Democrats amid the Trump administration’s rapid-fire federal judicial appointments — and the possibility of a looming Supreme Court vacancy.
Holder, who once described himself as former President Barack Obama’s “wingman,” this week also took a shot at Attorney General Bill Barr, saying the current state of the Justice Department (DOJ) is a politicized “disaster.”
Speaking Saturday at Pomona College’s Bridges Auditorium, in Claremont, Calif., Holder said: “I don’t think someone should have that much power in an unelected position for that long. … I think that three senatorial terms, 18 years, would be enough for a justice.”
Currently, a Supreme Court justice is appointed for life. Implementing term limits for the Supreme Court would require a highly implausible constitutional amendment overriding the “Good Behavior Clause” of the Constitution.
After those comments were first reported by the school’s newspaper, Holder on Wednesday confirmed the news and offered more details on his proposal.
“Eighteen years is enough for an unelected official — Supreme Court justice — wielding such power,” Holder wrote on Twitter. “Each president gets two picks which will decrease the political pressure in confirmation. Can be done by statute. Ask each candidate their position — including Trump. Reform is necessary.”
