  1. That's ok because next Republican President will just add more then you add more then they add more then you add more then they add more then you add more then they add more get it super dumb

  2. It is official: The communists have won from 1957.
    Get ready democrats are going to pack the court.
    Goodbye America say hello to……

  3. So yes or no after almost 100yrs more justice seats just to out vote others in order to just force ideas to get your own way last confirmation was 100% legal ok someone died and the seat needs to be filled you can't predict death but adding more seats to corrupt the system yeah thats way different

  4. Just add the 9 original fellowship of the ring, I would trust their handling of matters.

  5. They shouldn't add more justices. They should put term limits and put all Supreme Court justice positions up for national popular votes. Then they should put all Congressional positions and the Presidency to state and national popular vote respectively.

  6. If they do there could only be one reason, and that is to take away our constitutional rights

  7. What biden will do is put the most radical 4 judges on the bench in which they themselves will rewrite the Constitution in the radical left favor turning America into a socialist state and the president into a dictator .the radical left main objective is the green New Deal. Google it , its insane the only way to get it is to rewrite the Constitution

  8. They could add to the Supreme Court but they have to have access to the bucket of crap that they pick from

  9. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes please level up the playing field must clean the swamp mess up with these white supremacist Republicans holding too much ground

  10. \\ What Today, perhaps more important than ever before, may be the shedding of good light on some dark corners of politics, law and media? //// [Cf. our 160 books & editorials at U-tube, Amazon, in, etc.]. The Festival of Freedom, Lights, Unity, Music and Life, called Hanukkah [Dedication, חנוכה ] reproves – since about 2150 Years Ago – that People United Energy for Survival, [PUES], defeats domestic and external threats. The Festival marks the Rededication of paganism-free, Second Temple of Jerusalem at Kislev-Tevet [used about 150 years prior to BCE.] Its deep wisdom meaning extends far beyond common, political horizons of a specific regime, election, ideology, into an apparent runaway era of super-science-technology-civilization induced by Newton, Darwin, Einstein, Modern Health, Global Economy, Internet, Life Quality and PUES-EFFORTS TO PROTECT THE BEST FUTURE FOR OUR OffSPRINGS.//

    [Nov 28] Can both Trump and media pardon themselves when survival is at stack to heal the Union and move on? Media's gate keepers did nothing wrong by daily publishing, during months before Nov 3 ~200,000+ US-COV-19 deaths, that had scared many voters to vote against the apparently failed regime to control that. Yet, by avoiding & deleting, even herein, pandemic science results of ~ 100 nations [taken from JHU, WHO, etc.], US COV-19-DEATHS, in % of positively marked victims, were consistently trending DOWN [previous posts herein AND ~100 multiple sent emails of the records] – a massive win to the regime was at store. We proffer self-pardoning option that allows mistake-free runoff for the land to calm 4 more years, less fake media accusations.

  12. [Nov 22] Verified pandemic science proof of U.S. COVID-19 % FATALITIES TRENDING DOWN: 2.75 % [Oct 22] to 2.12% [Nov 21]; Also, in comparison, e.g., Nov 2 to [Nov 21]: – Germany 1.97,[1.56] – NL 2.11,[1.86] – Finland 2.20,[1.91] – U.S. 2.51,[2.12] – Mexico 9.79,[9.82] (NO BORDER may also affected U.S. %) – These are just a few examples of published daily data by JHU, WHO, ECDC, NHC, DXY, CDC of fatalities % in positively diagnosed victims in about 1OO nations provided by thousands of scientists, nurses and health workers, that, for months, are hidden or deleted by U.S. media. Instead it scares voters by publishing increasing and accelerating world biggest US COVID-19 cases/deaths. FACTS. But these big Nos. reflect big US population. ACCELERATION? By improved detection techs, methods & infected victims more willing to declare and trust hospitals, and their alleged Nos.-inflation (paid per case). Unequivocally, that ASYMMETRY had moved voters against the regime by Unrepairable Election Invalidations, [UEI], that none can fix today. No alternative, no-escape is thus left to heal the Divided Nation but by national runoff. We anticipate two runoff goods, at least: UEI evaporate if ordered & guided by the Supreme Court Authority AND various reported countries' pretext to respond to pro & cons of WH attack on Iran (published by NYT), to their drawers return by runoff. [IN, Amazon, Google Search, Utube]..

  13. It would of been smart if judge RBG stepped down while obama was in office that would've been a smart move but nope

  14. I hope if biden wins he doesnt add justices, that would be wrong, I do hope they get rid of the filibuster, which was a weapon the Democrats used when they had control, which backfired on them. Karma is a B

  15. It's getting out of wack because it's not going our way

  16. Guess the power that be handling the voting boxs DONT REALIZE THAT THEIR TERM WILL BE ENDING!!!!! #VOTE YOUR SENATOR or GOVERNOR OUT IF YOU HAVE LESS BALLOT DROP OFF LOCATIONS!!! SUPPRESS THOSE THATS SUPPRESSING OUR VOTES GET THEY AZZ OUT

  17. Yes, pack the court 6 to 3, that's not even fair. Add 3 more dem judges, make it even 6 and 6. Yes, so they can really work together and not just party line. Get it done.

  18. Apparently everything is on the table for democrats.

  19. Dems are too weak and owned by the Oligarchy to do anything.

  20. This is the sad truth… take a lesson from TYT on how to report the news!!! Reality.

  21. White old guys hand shows his with the elites, it’s all a game u can’t trust these judges. They show hand signs.

  22. How to stop all this BS right now.
    Democrats and Republicans remain deeply divided about how the U.S. Supreme Court should interpret the Constitution. I think Constitution should be used as it was originally written. It should not be interpreted what it means in current times. If it needs to be changed? It needs to be changed legally by a constitutional amendment.
