Phoenix, AZ — During the Vice Presidential debate on Wednesday in Salt Lake City, Utah, Sen. Kamala Harris (Deflecting-CA) refused to provide a direct answer on the Democrats desires to pack the Supreme Court of the United States should Republicans continue to the process of putting President Trump’s nominee on the High Court.
It is worth noting that the moderator did not ask about this. It became a focal and memorable point of the debate because of VP Mike Pence’s dogged persistence of whether or not she and Joe Biden intended to pack the Supreme Court if they won the election.
It seems likely that Republicans have the votes to put Judge Amy Coney Barrett on the Court. Her Senate Judiciary Hearing begins Monday morning with Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) presiding over the committee.
But Biden and Harris have refused to answer the question because obviously they intend to do so, but if they say that, they would make their power grab more obvious and make it more obvious that it’s the Democrats breaking all norms, not President Donald Trump.
The Democrats continued refusal to answer is by design. They are not bluffing and remain 100 percent committed to packing the court should Republicans follow their constitutional duties of advise and consent.
But in a tremendous disservice to the American people, Joe Biden doubled down and made that clear today that he didn’t even think the American public had the right to know about what he thought prior to the election, that they would only know after.

“You’ll know my opinion on court packing when the election is over.”
This is completely disrespectful to the American people.
We’ve been down this road before with Nancy Pelosi and the Affordable Care Act. We deserved better then and we deserve better now. If you recall, during the Fall recess while Obama was trying to jam this down our throats, the American people went ballistic at their Congressional representatives at local town halls.
How condescending and offensive is that? You have to vote for me to know what I’m going to do, but just shut up and stop asking and vote for me.
Like on the issue of race, Joe Biden believes this question is a being pushed by people he feels he doesn’t have to or feels as if they don’t deserve an answer. Of course, the media’s silence on the matter only emboldens the fossil and his weak debating VP choice.
Joe Biden is an old man who has been in the Senate for a little over 19 percent of the time the USA has actually been the USA. He is easily angered and he feels explaining himself is beneath him. He is not a king. Joe’s behavior is similar to this when it comes to race.
He thinks that black people are a group that “need to behave.” You can sense and see his frustration when a black person like “Charlamagne tha God” says he has more questions at the end of an interview. To Joe Biden, Black people aren’t allowed to have questions. He believes he is owed the black vote, and all he has to do is give black people a 15 minute pandering speech with black entertainers, rapers, and stars.
He acts like the question is out of line or somehow inappropriate. He wants to focus on what Trump is saying or doing and the media is perfectly content to aid and abet him in that cause. Of course, because he knows it would kill him in the election. Hopefully, people hold him accountable on his game playing.
President Trump is acting in accordance with the Article II of the Constitution and all norms. It’s Biden who isn’t, not only playing this game, but also not even releasing a list of judges whom he would consider for the Supreme Court so Americans can evaluate what they think of him for it, as Presidents have done in the past. Trump has done it, but Biden refuses, again, trying to play both ends against the middle, cater to the left while not losing the middle.
Media wouldn’t hold Joe to account. But hopefully Americans will call him out on this game. They’ve seen this game before from Nancy “We have to pass it to see what’s in it” Pelosi.
People need to understand what this means if they do this, they would by violating all norms seek to grab control of all the branches of government. One of the many reasons that they must never be allowed to get that power.
