Massive Blow to the Radical Left's Agenda
We told you about President Biden and the Left wanting to pack the Supreme Court. The Biden Administration established a commission to determine if reforming the highest Court in America was something that would ultimately benefit our judicial system. The findings so far have been pretty much what we all expected. It is unwise and would undermine the Supreme Court's legitimacy. To no one’s shock, the commissioners brought forward a 200-page draft of their findings, and in an excerpt, they admit : Commissioners are divided on whether court expansion would be wise. Court expansion is likely to undermine, rather than enhance, the Supreme Court’s legitimacy and its role in the constitutional system, and there are significant reasons to be skeptical that expansion would serve democratic values. The Supreme Court was never meant to be used as a political pawn for the party in power. Justice Stephen Breyer even agreed on this issue: The rule of law has weathered many threats, but it remains sturdy. I hope and expect that the Court will retain its authority, an authority that my stories have shown was hard-won. But that authority, like the rule of law, depends on trust, a trust that the Court is guided by legal principle, not politics. In another power grab attempt by the Left, they are also now trying to create an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) army to go after every single American – without probable cause – to have access to almost anyone’s bank accounts. This provision in the proposed reconciliation bill includes banks being required to report any account that has $600 in it or if someone were to spend $600 over a year to be reported. When asked about the American people who are concerned over this tracking method, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said: With all due respect, the plural of anecdote is not data. Yes, there are concerns that some people have. But if people are breaking the law and not paying their taxes, one way to track them is through the banking measure. I think $600 will go on as to what the amount is. The United States is already divided and now Congress is fighting internally over the tracking of our own people. This is yet another overreach of power by the Left, empowered by the Biden Administration. He’s certainly not going to stand up and stop it. President Biden’s weakness is a liability to the United States, especially at a time when the entire world is watching. ACLJ Senior Counsel for Global Affairs and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo just posted a new article detailing President Biden’s weakness on the international stage. He further explained China’s endgame with aircrafts flying into Taiwan: The Chinese interest here is very clear. We don’t have to guess. Xi Jinping, the leader of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) says . . . he wants to bring the people of Taiwan inside his totalitarian Chinese communist regime. . . . He wants to dominate them, and he wants to control this enormous economic power. He wants to take away this democracy that is just offshore from China. He is intent on doing it. We cannot allow the CCP to take this island away from these people who are democrats, who are freedom loving people, and to provide an important security component for the region. Sec. Pompeo summed it up best when he tweeted : When America leads with strength, the world is a safer place.
