Senator Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- Democrat Minority leader in the Senate, Charles Schumer, publicly threatened justices of the Supreme Court today in front of the Supreme Court. The threats were recorded and published on Twitter.

The above tweet, with the recording, was published by Steve Scalise, Republican Whip in the House. Representative Scalise was nearly killed in an assassination attempt on Republican members of Congress by a Democrat follower of Bernie Sanders.

This is not the first time Democrat Senators have threatened the Supreme Court.  On August 12, 2019, less than seven months ago, five Democrat senators, Sheldon Whitehouse, Mazie Hirono, Richard Blumenthal, Richard Durbin, and Kirsten Gillibrand, submitted an amici curae brief to the Supreme Court on the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. NYC case. The brief was very close to a direct threat to the court.

From the brief:

The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it. Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be “restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.”Particularly on the urgent issue of gun control, a nation desperately needs it to heal.

The implication is obvious: Nice little Court you have there. Be a shame if something were to happen to it. Rule the way we want, and you may keep your Court.

Ever since the Franklin Delano Roosevelt administration, the court has become more and more politicized. The court has found rights no one ever knew existed, while studiously ignoring rights specifically protected in the Constitution, such as the Second Amendment. It has expanded federal power through the commerce clause to virtually every action in the United States, rendering the commerce clause meaningless.  A federal government limit to regulate interstate commerce is meaningless when all activity is defined as interstate commerce, or, even more encompassing, affecting interstate commerce, and therefore subject to federal regulation.

Constitutionalists, believing in the necessity of the rule of law, have patiently worked to overcome the lobbying of Progressives, who do not believe themselves bound by the Constitution.  Over decades, in the face of direct, obvious political opposition to the Constitutional rule of law by leftists, Constitutionalists have finally been able to have a bare majority of originalist and textualist justices appointed to the Supreme Court. This is the first time an originalist and textualist majority has existed on the court for at least 80 years.

This has enraged Senator Schumer and like-minded progressives, who apparently believe there should be no limits on government power, except what they create, based on their desire to remain in power.

Senatore Schumer believes the Constitution does not limit what infringements can be made on the right to keep and bear arms; he believes the federal government has the Constitutional power and authority to limit the laws the states may pass to regulate abortions.

Decades of judicial activism may be undone if the Constitution is faithfully interpreted and followed.

Second Amendment rights may finally be enforced by the Court.

Legal discrimination in favor of leftist groups could be ruled invalid under equal protection under the law.

States might be allowed to check voters for eligibility.

Illegal immigrants might be ruled as not entitled to more political favors than citizens.

Federal District courts might not be able to override presidential executive actions.

All of which means less power for leftist politicians.

In Senator Schumer's mind, such a result seems to be completely unacceptable.

Chief Justice Roberts felt compelled to respond to such a direct threat.  From nationalreview.com:

“Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous. All Members of the Court will continue to do their job, without fear or favor, from whatever quarter,” Roberts said.

Schumer should be censured in the senate making him impotent in congress as well as in his personal life.

Jail? I was thinking something more along the lines of flaying alive. But he is a special case.

@RoyD – Don’t forget flaying is messy business. Be sure to provide a nice soothing salt water bath between strips to keep the process clean and sterile.

Schumer is a spinless bottom feeder who just ate every word the manly-man side of him tried to impress the world with. If you take back what you said, (1:) You know you were wrong. (2:) You’re not a tough as you would like people to think you are. He needs to be prosecuted the same as the average citizen would if he or she made those threats. No one is above the law.

@StWayne – Did I miss something? Last I heard he stood behind everything he’d said.

Normally, I would dismiss the rantings of democrat lunatics. But remember Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia? Mysteriously dying without any autopsy? These leftist democrat communists must be taken seriously and a U.S. senator no less should be immediately removed and banned from anything government.

Also, let’s not forget the attempted mass shooting of the Republican congressional softball team practice after the “fight them in the street” comments. That POS Schumer chose his words with purpose. He should be arrested for inciting violence.

He should have been dragged INSTANTLY from the steps in front of the Supreme Court as soon as the last word left his leftist lips, and put on trial for threatening a, no TWO, Supreme Court justices. His N.Y. pedestal standing, Libtard ass should be behind bars NOW….

Hey Dean, is the Maxine waters virus contagious? Seems like most of the demoncrapic party and most of the propaganda — opps — I mean the national news channels, have had it for nearly four years now. I understand it has infected the F.B.I., C.I.A., A.T.F.E., I.R.S., E.P.A. ETC. have also been infected. Instigating a riot should be illegal. It was not so long ago when demoncrapic supporter shot up a base ball game. That guy is a Bernie bro if memory serves. I understand the need for debate to work out issues but there is no place for someone,… Read more »

Must say that I agree with part of the democrat letter to SCOTUS. The nation does desperately need the court to heal on gun control rulings. If they would just throw out NFA, GCA, & FOPA while clarifying that the second applies to states and municipalities – we could finally heal.

I AM TIRED OF THE GUTLESS PUKES IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. If that threat were said by McConnell, his censure papers would be drawn up today by Shummer. Shummer’s tactic is simple, he hopes to inspire a nut case to take one or both of these guys out. This plus many other recent things like Donna Brazil’s incredible aggressive explosion on FOX Tuesday (she should be fired) the Democrat asshole who shot up the Republican ball game last year and so much more shows that true communists like these people and the national Democrat party’s leadership is violently dangerous.

@Jim – Much as I’d like to totally agree with you, wishing for Ginsberg’s timely death in such a manner is treading dangerously close to Schumer’s level. Just as Schumer is calling for violence directed at SCOTUS justices, you could be seen as asking for anyone infected with CV-19 to do their best to approach RBG. Not to worry. Virtually everyone in the country will eventually catch the virus – hope is to spread the illness slowly to avoid an excessive fraction of the population being bed ridden simultaneously. We need healthy people growing/raising, processing, delivering and selling food and… Read more »

Being Jewish has nothing to do with his problems. Being a big mouth, socialist traitor trying to incite rebellion should earn him a jail cell or worse.

There are Jews who would consider Donald Trump a left wing loon and then there are Jews who would consider Donald Trump a right wing monster and everything in-between.
I have no doubt that he was influenced by his parents and neighborhood adults which partly resulted in him being what he is. Of course that could be said about most people. The bottom line is he is what he is and we have to deal with it. Or not.
