OUT: "Packing the Court"; IN: "DEpoliticizing the Court" - DEMedia cheers

So two things happened this weekend, both showing coordination.

 

First, Biden, Harris, other Dems and the DEMedia are trying to redefine what "packing the courts" means in the current environment. Biden said it yesterday: what Trump is trying to do, fill a vacancy on the 9-member SC, is actually an attempt to "pack the court". That flies in the face of historical meaning (see FDR's attempt to pack the SC to preserve his New Deal plans the Court was disallowing) and 90 years of colloquial usage. Even better, Biden said yesterday that Trump's effort to place ACB on the SC is "unconstitutional", even though it is not. 
 

So Biden won’t address whether he would actually pack the Court in the classic definition, but he is gaslighting Trump for doing what’s been done 29 times in history. And the DEMedia not only won’t call out Biden on his rhetoric, they adopt his language, or he’s adopting theirs. Just seems all too coordinated to be happenstance.

Second, the Media and Dems are now trying to not only move the definition of "Court packing" but they are trying to reduce the meaning and import of any attempt to EXPAND THE COURT". As if overnight, a new term, "depoliticizing" has entered the current lexicon with a meaning that is a perversion of the use of "de" as in undo as a prefix for "politicizing". Increasing the size of the Court, not attempted since FDR's failed attempt in the 1930s, is the ULTIMATE political acts and would politicize the Court in ways unimaginable. 
 

Another entry into the progressive NewSpeak dictionary. 

‘Americans aren’t idiots!’ The AP’s use of ‘Democrats’ language’ to explain ‘packing the court’ doesn’t go well

Posted at 2:09 pm on October 11, 2020 by Jacob B.

Since the Associated Press considers itself “an independent global news organization dedicated to factual reporting,” it would be problematic for an AP article to contain commentary packaged as news and facts.

 

Real Clear Politics co-founder and president Tom Bevan captured the following excerpt from an AP story.

“Bullock said that if Coney Barrett was confirmed, he would be open to measures to depoliticize the court, including adding judges to the bench, a practice critics have dubbed packing the courts.”

The latest version of the article contains the following note:

“This story has been edited to make clear that it is Bullock’s opinion, rather than a fact, that adding justices to the Supreme Court would depoliticize the court.”

To call increasing the number of Supreme Court justices “depoliticizing” would be an egregious political overstatement if made by a Democrat politician, much less a news organization.

 

Also, “packing the court” is not a phrase recently invented by opponents of the Democrats’ desire to increase the number of justices.

 

Americans need a news media that will tell us what’s going on without telling us how to react.

When you've got the MSM, the entertainment industry, tech oligarchs, and the DC swamp controlling most of our information resources, anything is possible.

AP no longer stands for Associated Press

 

Going forward it now stands for Arse-Holes Politicized 

 

This is fun, what else can we redefine?

Nope. Every conceivable metric points to a Trump win. Not including fake polls. By enthusiasm, by merchandise sold, by boat parades, by the number of yard signs, by every measure, Trump has it in the bag already. 

 

You're not looking at the big picture, and hence, you don't know squat about squat.

Except the one metric that would have insured Trump's win.

 

The economy.

Nobody blames Trump for the democrats shutting down the economy over the hoax virus. Get real. It's not year zero and it certainly isn't month zero.
