The Democrats Supreme Court Packing Attempt

Time To Take Out the Trash

Led by House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, the House is working on legislation to increase the Supreme court seats from 9 to 13. This is an obvious and blatant attempt by Democrats to shift the balance of power in their favor. The Democrats are also trying to stop states from pushing through much needed election reform. They prefer no IDs and cheating, which will help keep Democrats in power. The Socialist Democrats are living up to their socialist bent. After all, Socialists do not permit competing parties. Once leaders such as Lenin and Castro took over, their opposition was neutralized. The Democrats are trying to do the same thing.

The Democrats need not fear a conservative Supreme Court. After all, the so-called conservative highest court in the land refused to hear overwhelming evidence that the Democrats stole the presidential election. I don’t trust the turncoat Chief Justice Roberts or any of the new conservatives on the Supreme Court. I trust Justice Clarence Thomas and that’s about it.

The round man known as Nadler seems to be wearing his pants a bit higher these days. I imagined his pants going higher and higher until his face was covered by them. He is helped by his Democratic colleague in the Senate, Ed Markey from Massachusetts. Their idea of packing the Supreme Court belongs in a trash compactor.

CNN Deliberately Manipulating Public


Armstrong Economics Blog/Press Re-Posted Apr 16, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Jeff Zucker was named Chairman of WarnerMedia News and Sports in March 2019. He has also served as president of CNN Worldwide since 2013. If I were Zucker, I would hire an army to protect myself and my family. He is engaged in overthrowing the United States and trashing everything generations have fought and died for over the centuries. What he has done is no different than manipulating the people by creating false flags, as did Adolf Hitler, regardless of whether his end goal to dominate Europe or just the United States. He may be Jewish and does not have the same goal to eradicate Jews as Hitler did, but he is focused on Republicans.

Biden to Stack the Supreme Court to make it WOKE


Armstrong Economics Blog/Rule of Law Re-Posted Apr 15, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

As expected, the Democrats will introduce a bill to change the Supreme Court turning into the first WOKE institution to permanently change the face of the United States once and for all. Biden pretended to create a commission to study changing the Supreme Court and within a matter of days, they proposed stacking the Supreme Court adding four Justices to ensure the Court will be WOKE.

The Judicial Procedures Reform Bill of 1937, frequently called the “court-packing plan”, was a legislative initiative proposed by Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) to add more justices to the Supreme Court in order to obtain favorable rulings regarding the New Deal legislation. FDR was trying to take the United States as close as possible to Communism thanks to the New York Times and their star journalist Walter Duranty (1884-1957) who convinced FDR to recognize the Communist government of Russia (see film Mr. Jones).

The New York Times journalist Walter Duranty on March 31, 1933, denounced reports of a famine. The NY Times was so left, it could not possibly walk a straight line. They were so pro-Communism for they saw Marxism as the way to a new future. It was Duranty who met with Roosevelt to convince him that Communism was working and to encourage his New Deal. The mainstream press in the 1930s was very much touting Communism as the solution to the Great Depression and once more that are all touting “equality” once more to alter the United States once and for all into the new European style socialist state.

On February 5, 1937, President Franklin Roosevelt announced a plan to expand the Supreme Court to as many as 15 judges, allegedly to make it more efficient. Critics instantly charged that Roosevelt was trying to “pack” the court and thus neutralize Supreme Court justices hostile to his New Deal. The Supreme Court over the first two years of the Roosevelt Administration had struck down several key pieces of New Deal legislation on the grounds that the laws delegated an unconstitutional amount of authority to the executive branch and the federal government.

Roosevelt won in 1932 and his reelection in 1936 was a landslide, the highest win for the Democrats in American history post-Civil War when they were the Southern Democrats championing slavery. FDR issued his proposal in February 1937 to provide retirement at full pay for all members of the court over 70. If a justice refused to retire, an “assistant” with full voting rights was to be appointed, thus ensuring Roosevelt a liberal majority. Most Republicans and many Democrats in Congress opposed the so-called “court-packing” plan. The Constitution ensured that judges were there for life.

Article III Section 1
The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour, and shall, at stated Times, receive for their Services, a Compensation, which shall not be diminished during their Continuance in Office.

Actually, it was Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) who argued for the right of re-election with respect to presidents. The people, he said, were the rulers of a republic. And presidents were the servants of the people. If the people wanted to elect the same president, again and again, they had the right to do this. However, when it came to appointing judges, Franklin argued for the Scottish legal system where lawyers appointed judges – not politicians. The notes are available from the framing of the Constitution. They are a great insight into the thinking process that created the United States.

James Wilson (1742–1798) who eventually became a Supreme Court Justice, argued in support of having one person appoint judges. He said experience showed that large bodies could not make appointments fairly or openly.
John Rutledge (1739–1800) who also became a Supreme Court justice, disagreed saying that by no means should the president appoint judges. He said that method looked too much like a monarchy. Interestingly, it was Benjamin Franklin who argued that in Scotland judges were appointed by lawyers. They always chose the very best lawyer to be a judge to remove the competition in their own self-interest.

The delegates voted on the issue. They agreed that the legislature would decide how many judges would sit on the Supreme Court. The president would appoint the judges. The legislature could establish lower courts from time to time. The president would appoint those judges as well. The Constitution, therefore, requires the president to submit nominations to the Senate for its advice and consent. Since the Supreme Court was established in 1789, presidents have submitted 164 nominations for the Court, including those for chief justice. Of this total, 127 were confirmed (7 declined to serve). While politicians continue to think if they appoint a justice they will always vote in their favor, as I have reported before, that has never been the case. It was Chief Justice Roberts, appointed by President Bush Jr., who upheld Obamacare as a tax and has refused to accept any case regarding the 2020 election.

In April 1937, before FDR’s bill came to a vote in Congress, two Supreme Court justices panicked and were intimidated switching sides to support FDR’s New Deal. They switched sides creating a narrow majority to uphold as constitutional the National Labor Relations Act and the Social Security Act. The majority opinion acknowledged that the national economy had grown to such a degree that federal regulation and control was now warranted. That became the justification for socialism. Instead of simply requiring people to save a portion of their earnings, the government seized their funds and then invested them into government bonds.  Roosevelt’s reorganization plan was thus unnecessary, and in July the Senate struck it down by a vote of 70 to 22. Soon after, Roosevelt had the opportunity to nominate his first Supreme Court justice, and by 1942 all but two of the justices were his appointees.

The Democrats are toying with changing the entire face of the nation. With Biden stacking the court, everything from the Second Amendment to Abortion and taxes will be altered forever. They will be hurling the United States ever closer and closer to Revolution. Ah – how history repeats for the LEFT always seek totalitarianism. Had we only listened to Ben Franklin.

I have been warning that the United States will split. You are witnessing its demise.  The Democrats do not have a mandate. Every member of the leftist mainstream press is officially a traitor to everything the Founding Fathers fought for. My family has been in this country from the beginning. My cousin has the musket our ancestor used during the Revolution. We have come full circle. The spirit of the Founders was that everyone was to enjoy their pursuit of liberty. The Democrats disagree with that principle.

Welcome to the WOKE Democratic Revolution where to them, God is dead. Some are starting to believe that this has become a religious war between the believers and atheists. Everything from the Cancel Culture designed to eliminate free speech to forced registration of all guns and their argument to dispense with the 4th and 2nd Amendments and allow the police to just burst into your home to search for guns without any evidence you even have a gun.

Then this teaching in schools that all white people are inherently evil racists but somehow if you are a Democrat you alone are the exception is amazing. After all, the founder of the Democratic Party was Andrew Jackson who was a ruthless slave owner who was memorialized on Confederate stamps.

It was the Democrats who initiated the American Civil War because they were the party of slavery. It was LBJ, who is known to have pushed Kennedy’s Civil Rights bill against initial resistance from Southern Democrats and he explained that by doing so they would bind the blacks to the Democratic Party and they would retain power.

Biden and the Democrats DO NOT have the mandate to change the core principles of this nation. Without the consent of the governed, this is simply tyranny. I have stated many times, a Republic is the worst form of government because they run on one statement, and then enact other measures without the consent of the people. Biden is even disgracing his own son Beau Biden’s memory who won the Bronze Star Medal for his service in Iraq. I seriously doubt he died to fight for transforming the United States into WOKE where it is improper to even call one’s father, father!

DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Comment from Ireland: It seems your 2018 article was correct & more or less on time.

“From a cyclical perspective, if we begin on August 15th, 1969, then we are concluding a 51.6-year wave on 2021.2219178, which will be March 22nd. It is lining up with the Economic Confidence Model and the Monetary Crisis Cycle. Therefore, the violence will reemerge with a new trend once again driven by economics. Violence has continued sporadically but it has been rising gradually again since 2013.”

REPLY: It is my hope that people understand that these forecasts are NOT based upon my opinion. There is a cyclical nature to everything. The key is to open your eyes and look around you. If there is anything I can contribute to society before I am released from this chaotic world, I hope it will be the fact that we make that first step for mankind departing linear analysis and moving to the dynamic world of nonlinear activity where they finally grasp that everything has a cycle.

Cyclically, the time is now. From the landing on the Moon (1969.55), we have now reached 2021.15, marking the attempt to change the world once again on the negative side. The turning point before 1969.55 was 1917.95. Ironically, it was on Dember 15, 1917, when an armistice was signed between the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic on the one side and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Kingdom of Bulgaria, the German Empire, and the Ottoman Empire on the other. Communism was given the green light. Unfortunately, this particular cycle has warned that we indeed face the rise of tyranny once more here in 2021.

Ned Ryun Gets it Right, It Will Take Individual State Action to Stop The Advance of Corporatism


Posted originally on the conservative tree house April 16, 2021 | Sundance | 19 Comments

A slow awakening amid conservatives?…  Is there hope?…  This guy gets it.  American majority CEO Ned Ryun discusses the distinct difference between corporatism and capitalism and points out how JoeBama’s big government model is based on the principle of letting the multinationals erode civil liberties. 

This might sound familiar if you have read THIS HERE and THIS HERE.  Watch:

Multinational corporations do not like capitalism because within the process of capitalism they do not have control over the financial outcomes.  Capitalism breeds competition; multinationals abhor competition, they are totalitarian in ideology and want the entire pie under their control.  Multinational corporations do not like capitalism; underline it, emphasize it, do not forget it.

Boy howdy is there a disconnect amid the outlook of most ‘conservatives’ when it comes to corporations and capitalism. This tweet is a great place to recognize the distinction between the objectives of multinational corporations and their hatred of capitalism.

First, they were not “corporations” on the call, that is not an accurate description. The assembly was a group of “multinationals” discussing their objectives, goals and outlooks on politics.

There is a difference between an ordinary corporation and a multinational corporation. Multinationals hate capitalism.

When I say most multinational corporations hate capitalism many people look confused.

Multinationals want control; some call that corporatism…. but the names are moot. Multinationals want control, and capitalism does not allow them control. Multinationals use lobbyists to generate legislative regulations that stall competition.

Multinationals do not want competition; they are, by nature of their interest, anti-capitalists.

This misunderstanding is everywhere.

Let me help by sharing a short video that explains why:

The first myth busted in that video explains why corporations do not like capitalism. That’s why Big Tech is also against capitalism.

Capitalism is based on the principles of a free market.  Multinationals do not want a free market, they want a controlled market.  Their efforts toward a vaccine passport are an example of yet another control they can manipulate for maximum financial benefit.  It really is that simple…..

…. Meanwhile the crew of totalitarians behind JoeBama know they can benefit from their corporate allies.  The multinationals will pay the politicians for control and the politicians will construct defensive legislative outcomes that protect the multinationals.  That is what is happening in exponentially increasing sunlight.

Unfortunately the multinationals are also the funding mechanism for the UniParty.  Democrats and Republicans both benefit from the financial process of payments by the multinationals for control of legislative outcomes.   This is the entire purpose of K-Street.   In third-world countries we call bribery of elected officials “corruption”; however, in the United States we call bribery of elected officials “lobbying”, the process is exactly the same.

Can you see it now?….

The federal government is lost amid this sordid soup of corporate interests.  Republicans and Democrats are benefiting from COVID financial opportunities provided by the multinationals.

How will this play out?…  Well, follow it to its natural conclusion.

It will be up to the individual states to block vaccine passport requirements initiated by the private sector.  Unfortunately their track record on mask requirements is not a good precursor for what needs to happen.  States will need to initiate legislation that prohibits private companies from demanding vaccinations in order to participate in their commercial enterprise (airline flights, venue entry, tickets, etc.).

Some states will do this, other states will not; that’s the problem.  We are going to have “free states” and “control states”.

Ideological banks may stop doing business in free states.  Ideological airlines may stop doing business in free states.  Ideological companies like Amazon may stop doing business in free states.   Everything will fracture and the Alinsky crew will be high-fiving themselves.  Then issues like the postal service will come up…. Eventually the federal government will step-in to play a role and… they will likely support the corporations because that’s who pays them.

The worst part about all of this is the origination is a fraud.  The entire functional narrative of the COVID virus is based on a fraud.  It’s not about a virus; nothing about this has anything to do with a virus; it is all about control.

Maricopa County, Arizona, Ballot Audit Will Take Place At State Fairgrounds as Board of Supervisors Refuses to Permit Use of County Tabulations Center


Posted originally on the conservative tree house April 15, 2021 | Sundance | 101 Comments

[Full Background Here] After a few months of back-and-forth legal battles between the Arizona state senate and the Maricopa County board of supervisors, the ballots in Arizona’s most populous county are going to be audited beginning in approximately one week, April 22nd.

However, it is my opinion the Board of Supervisors is intentionally trying to set up an issue with chain-of-custody to nullify the results of the audit.

Maricopa County officials refused to allow the audit to take place in the tabulations center where the ballots are currently stored {Go Deep}.  As a result the ballot audit will take place at the Arizona Exposition and State Fairgrounds.  The auditors are trying to be as transparent as possible knowing the outcome, if it turns out as predicted to find significant fraud, will be legally challenged.

The auditors are allowing any person who lives in the county to be a participant in the physical audit and re-canvassing.  The auditor are being proactive toward establishing transparency and legitimacy; however, the county board of supervisors appears to be operating with an intent to undercut the audit results.   [You can follow the audit on Twitter Here] – [You can apply to assist the audit HERE]https://www.youtube.com/embed/smJEAqQoivY?feature=oembed

.

The Maricopa Audit is critical.  It could be the first step in revealing any election fraud; and the consequences of the audit could then trigger other state legislatures to do a similar physical ballot audit and re-canvass.   The leftists know the importance of this Arizona audit; and it is with that in mind I find it very suspicious they are intentionally forcing the auditors to move the physical location of millions of ballots.

Some in Arizona have the same concern.  Note this letter:Attention: Arizona Senate,


Arizona Revised Statute 16-624(A) states, “After the canvas has been completed, the officer in charge of elections shall deposit the package or envelope containing the ballots in a secure facility managed by the Maricopa County Treasurer, who shall keep it unopened and unaltered for twenty-four months for elections for a federal office or for six months for all other elections, at which time he shall destroy it without opening or examining the contents.”

We read Judge Thomason’s order, which states, “The County claims it has not stored the ballots with the Maricopa County Treasurer as required “because of ongoing litigation.” The County states that it will deposit the ballots in the Treasurer’s vault, “as the law requires,” only after litigation concludes. It is unclear why the County feels justified in violating the law simply because litigation is pending, but claims that it cannot violate the law by complying with the Subpoenas.”

Why haven’t you done something about the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors’ violation of ARS 16-624(A) by not transferring custody of ballots to the Maricopa County Treasurer’s office?

We the People, demand the audit be conducted in the Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center (MCTEC) where there are IP addresses, internet connectivity, nest cameras, modems, and routers (and all the data in them) from “the scene”. We should NOT disengage all of that and attempt to recreate it in another location – information and data will be lost. The Board of Supervisors do not  own the County buildings, the audit is funded by the taxpayers and the chain of custody would be protected. Moving the ballots gives the BOS plausible deniability in the event ballots have gone missing. The ballots were already moved once by the BOS – we have not forgotten! Also, it is customary practice when fighting over disclosure and subpoenaed items to make said item available at their physical location when it is impracticable to do otherwise. Furthermore, the former Maricopa County Recorder, Adrian Fontes, had been parading around bragging about Dominion having had offices with staff INSIDE MCTEC for a long time.

Go back to the Judge. Get Judge Thomason on the phone and get the matter on the record now. Demand access pursuant to the order and ask the judge to hold the Board in contempt if they do not open the doors now. The Judge made every point to reinforce your authority over the County.

Where is the court order to secure Irregular ballots under ARS 16-624(B), as they are specifically named separately from other ballots? Under AZ Statute, they are only preserved for 6 months (May 3, 2021). We demand this issue be acknowledged and a court order obtained to preserve irregular ballots in ALL counties in AZ.

You must take action now!

Arizona and the World is Watching how you will react to this very important issue of Election Integrity and We the People of AZ will stand behind you!Sincerely,Vera AndersonPC & State Committeeman LD20, CD6 National Delegate to RNC Convention 2020

JoeBama Flinches, Putin Closes Kerch Strait and Blocks Black Sea to Foreign Warships


Posted originally on the conservative tree House April 15, 2021 | Sundance | 451 Comments

As Russia continues to build up troop presence near the Ukraine border, Joe Biden sent a warning to Vladimir Putin.  In response Russia told the U.S. to stay out of the Black Sea “for your own good” while they conduct exercises.  Biden turned back two U.S. navy ships….  Hours later Putin closed the Kerch Strait.

The Biden administration is attempting to give the illusion of strength but it is all an act and Russia knows it.   The Ukraine is vulnerable to Russian absorption because a large portion of the Ukrainian people support Russia.   NATO is attempting to issue threats, but Russia knows the EU, and specifically Germany, will do nothing except grasp their pearls.  It is all false bravado on the part of the NATO alliance; they have no teeth and their electorate have no desire for another conflict.

A Background Note –  Additional leverage Putin holds goes back to the Nordstream 2 gas pipeline to supply the energy needs of Germany.  German Chancellor Angela Merkel was warned by President Trump not to go forward with the pipeline that creates a geopolitical leverage for Russia.  Merkel went ahead despite the warnings, and adding salt to the issue, Germany never upheld their NATO funding commitments (2% of GDP).  This was a major source of contention between Trump and Merkel.

The knuckleheads behind Biden attempted to flex their muscle toward Russia through a series of sanctions earlier today.   The United States sanctioned 32 Russian entities and individuals along with six technology companies, formally attributed the SolarWinds cyber breach to Russian intelligence agencies, and accused Moscow of still trying to hack American targets.

Russian President Vladimir Putin doesn’t care about words.  Words, without action are meaningless.   Putin knows the Biden administration is weak domestically because the majority of the U.S. electorate view his administration as illegitimate.   Putin also knows Barack Obama foreign policy is essentially Biden foreign policy, and Putin accepts that both Obama and Biden are intent to weaken the U.S. globally.

From the Russian perspective a bunch of noisy and pontificating moonbats are currently running everything in the U.S. and there is absolutely nothing to fear because their leadership, our  U.S. government, is weak and unsupported.  Putin knows Americans are not going to agree to another regional war in Europe when the damn Europeans are not even willing to defend themselves.

Joe Biden acting like Scott Farcus only works until Ralphie puts a fist in Farcus’s face.

And don’t forget… the number one asset of Russia is energy (oil and gas); JoeBama’s energy policy has effectively assisted the Russian economy.   So there’s that…

U.S. Intelligence Now Says Story of Russian Bounties on American Troops Likely False


Posted originally on the conservative tree house April 15, 2021 | Sundance | 104 Comments

After the media blew up a story about Russian military putting bounties on American troops in an effort to shape a Russian collusion narrative against the administration of President Trump, the U.S. intelligence community now says that story was likely false.

(Via Daily Beast) – [O]n Thursday, the Biden administration announced that U.S. intelligence only had “low to moderate” confidence in the story after all. Translated from the jargon of spyworld, that means the intelligence agencies have found the story is, at best, unproven—and possibly untrue.

[…] According to the officials on Thursday’s call, the reporting about the alleged “bounties” came from “detainee reporting” – raising the specter that someone told their U.S.-aligned Afghan jailers what they thought was necessary to get out of a cage. Specifically, the official cited “information and evidence of connections to criminal agents in Afghanistan and elements of the Russian government” as sources for the intelligence community’s assessment.
