America moved closer to a 180-degree shift last week when President Joe Biden established the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States. And now, the treacherous idea of court-packing is closer to becoming reality, as Democrats filed a bill this week to add four (4) seats to the Supreme Court.
In examining “reforms” to the Supreme Court, the major issue the commission will examine is court-packing—put simply, increasing the number of justices on the Supreme Court. If court-packing succeeds, it would completely change America’s judiciary system and threaten the future of our most fundamental freedoms.
