Heated Lindsey Graham SHUTS UP Whining Democrats

He’s done with their nonsense…

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) criticized a handful of Senate Democrats on Sunday after the five lawmakers threatened to expand the Supreme Court if they did not get their way.

“This has been a dream of the left for decades — to increase the number of judges on the court, pack them with liberal judges so the court can do, through the legal system, what they can’t do through the ballot box,” Graham told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo when asked about an amicus brief that Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Mazie Hirono (D-HI), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) filed last week.

“The dream of every leftist is to have a liberal court enacting laws from the bench,” he continued. “The dream of every conservative is to have judges who will interpret the law, not make the law.”

Graham’s remarks were in response to an amicus brief that the aforementioned lawmakers filed only days earlier. The legal document warns the nine justices that they if they do not drop a New York firearms case that the court has agreed to review, than they will be faced with public backlash and subsequent restructuring.

Whitehouse unapologetically told The Washington Post that he was cautioning the Supreme Court, not threatening the institution.

“When you hear ‘expanding the court,’ that’s code for liberals packing the court,” Graham said. “Over my dead body, it’s not going to happen.”

Graham chairs the Senate Judiciary, which is tasked with considering executive nominations, including judicial nominations. While serving as a rank-and-file member of the committee in 2018, he was instrumental in Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

“When they want to do away with [the] electoral college, that’s telling every rural American to go to hell,” Graham said. “That would mean that Los Angeles and New York would decide who is the president. The electoral college allows rural Americans to have a say about picking the president.”

“So, they accuse [President] Donald Trump of changing our system — they’re the ones that are turning it upside down because they can’t win under the current construct,” he continued. “So, this idea of packing the court has been a dream of the left forever and we’re not going to let it happen.”

Though Democrats have long been proposing to exert their congressional powers in order to increase the number of Justices that would sit on the Supreme Court at one time, Democrats’ calls for “court-packing” have increased since Trump got elected to office in 2016.

The majority of Democratic presidential candidates running in the upcoming election cycle have advocated for expanding the court, including South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Kamala Harris (D-CA), former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), and Gillibrand, who signed the recent amicus brief.

The two frontrunners, former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), however, both have come out against any form of court-packing.

    Those whiny Democrats need to find REAL jobs and work under the laws they created. That should make them change their tune ( Can you say “Conservative”? Might make a CATCHY song!). Packing the courts is a BAD idea since all DEMOCRATS want to do is push forward their sorry socialistic agendas and DESTROY this country, turning it into something that the Founding Fathers (Under the Guidance of the Almighty God) never intended . . . Team Trump and his allies 2020.

    I wish people would quit calling the left the Democrat party they are not they are the communist party and they are in your face just like your communist cousins. It’s my way or the highway with these people and that’s the way communism is. They’ll do whatever it takes to gain power fixed the ballot boxes which was done the last time and the time before and the time before but no one wants to go fight it because it’s hard to fight big money I suppose. This is up to the people to demand the ballot box to be watched and Elect or electoral ballot boxes are the easiest ones to fix. All you have to do is take every second or third vote of a guy that you like and casted toward the demo /Communist Side of the belt and there you have it. The reason they’re really upset as they don’t know how they didn’t have this last election because they had it stuffed with illegals and dead people I know that the county that I come from my dead father is still on their voting machine that should’ve been removed when he died and they refused to remove it that is the Democrats/communist party.

      We need to go back to the way it used to be, no mail in ballots. You go to the place where you can vote, show your ID then go vote! Problem solved!

      the Communist party is alive and well within the banner of “democrats party” The only one who isn’t is a near incompetent aging an with sundown syndrome and would never be able to handle the rigors of the office.

      The problem with Lindsey Graham is two fold, he wants illegal immigrants to come freely into our country, to supply his rich friends with slave labor. Then he wants to disarm America, to fulfill his obligations to George Soros. Once the gang of Eight, always the Gang of Eight. He has tried kissing up to President Trump, with False Lips! Pray that President Trump doesn’t fall for that!

    I haven’t trusted the Democrats for quite a few years. They have proven that they will use every crooked method to win. They want to gain POWER and change our Country into another COMMUNIST country like Cuba. They falsely accuse our President when they are the ones who want to change our Constitution and laws and our Supreme Court. The DEMOCRATS are the enemy of America.

    There comes a time when you have to stand for the Constitution or die by legislation one bill at a time.

    I will offer this little but important lesson in history – The reason Americans should be aggressively fighting against gun control is because armed people will not willingly load themselves in boxcars or FEMA camps!

    “Those who fear your gun do so because they know they are guilty of things for which they should be shot”- Kevin B Shearer
    “Laws forbidding the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.” Thomas Jefferson quoting Cesare Beccaria
    “Patriots are not revolutionaries trying to overthrow the government of the United States. Patriots are Counter-revolutionaries trying to prevent the government from overthrowing the Constitution.” – Thomas Jefferson

    Let the civil war begin.

    The Dumbocraps named by Lindsey should be removed from Congress. They are anti-American and belong to the Party of HATE, EVIL AND STUPIDITY. The 2020 candidates believe the American public is dumb enough to believe any thing they promise, even when there is no way to provide the program. They want to ruin and bankrupt America,
