Former campaign manager for Trump’s presidential campaign and political activist David Bossie sees the left’s attempt to get Justice Breyer to step down from the Supreme Court as a win for conservatives.
He contends that the left’s attempts to force Justice Breyer into retirement could backfire on them. Their push to replace him with a younger liberal justice is one more step in their effort to hold on to the high court. They are pressuring Breyer as they move forward with plans to remake and pack the highest court in the land. Plus, he’s just not liberal enough for Democrats these days.
“For this zany bunch, being pro-abortion, anti-free speech, and against the right to keep and bears arms isn’t enough – you must be in favor of fundamentally changing America into the world’s next failed socialist experiment. It’s the left’s new litmus test,” Bossie stated in an op-ed for Fox News.
“Having to live through President Trump nominating three conservative justices to the Supreme Court in four years – Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett – unhinged leftists can’t see straight. In fact, they’re all but foaming at the mouth for the opportunity to put one of their own – a young radical Marxist – on the Supreme Court,” he stated.

The 82-year-old justice was originally nominated by former President Bill Clinton in 1994. He is now the oldest justice on the bench after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing last year.
“Left-wing activists desperately want to replace Justice Breyer with someone who would enter the court with a dangerous political agenda. The agenda would center on laying waste to the Constitution, Bill of Rights and the rule of law,” Bossie remarked.
Bossie would love to see Breyer retire for a host of reasons. Those include gun rights, abortion, and free speech. But he doesn’t believe a judge who is even further to the left is confirmable given the make-up of the Senate.
“I don’t believe that Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia would approve a nominee who wants to repeal the Second Amendment. I don’t believe that Arizona Sens. Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly would vote for a judge who will ignore immigration laws, disrespect ICE and Border Patrol agents and cause more chaos at the border,” Bossie asserts.
He also thinks that Biden is incapable of getting a nominee through the process of confirmation:
And then there’s President Joe Biden, the person who would be responsible for choosing Breyer’s successor.
Biden likes to say that politics is the art of the possible and he’s right. Biden cannot put forward a radical nominee who can’t get the votes of all 50 Democrats.
Not to mention, forcing Democrat senators from red and purple states to vote in favor of an out-of-the-mainstream judge for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court would almost certainly spell the end of the Democrat majority in the U.S. Senate after the 2022 midterm elections. For example, most Georgians don’t want a left-wing activist on the high court and Sen. Raphael Warnock’s reelection would almost certainly swing on that one crucial vote.
Then Bossie gave a warning to Democrats, “My message to the liberals who are running the pressure campaign on Breyer is keep it up – at your own peril. Every Supreme Court pick is a gamble to some extent and there’s always a chance that Biden’s choice could end up to the right of Breyer with his or her rulings. Not to mention, a Breyer retirement now would grind Biden’s socialist agenda to a screeching halt for months. And everyone knows nothing gets accomplished in Washington in an election year – and 2022 is rapidly approaching.”
He claims that if a Supreme Court fight is instigated in the fall of 2021, all pending legislation will effectively stall. That includes the pork-laden $3.5 trillion Democrat wish list. It also includes, “…no amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants; no defunding police; no gun control; no federal takeover of elections; no tax hikes – no nothing.” Bossie calls that “winning.”
The clock is ticking one way or the other for the Democrats. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said in June that if he does ascend as majority leader after the midterm elections in 2022, it’s “highly unlikely” he’ll allow Biden to fill a Supreme Court seat.
So, if the left pushes to replace Breyer now, they torpedo their political agenda. But if they let it go, it could further solidify the court for conservatives. According to Bossie, they’re damned if they do and damned if they don’t at this point.
He’s right about the left not being good at reading warning signs… they are lining up on social media demanding that Breyer retire:
Today would be a good day for Justice Breyer to say he’s retiring #SCOTUS

Your turn, Justice Breyer.

Justice Breyer needs to step down so President Biden can nominate his successor. He may not have a chance after 2022.

Cuomo did the right thing. Let’s hope Justice Breyer is paying attention.

I’d recommend say a 35y old progressive gay law professor to fill the vacant seat of Breyer.

Senator Feinstein and Justice Breyer should retire this Summer.

Biden signs both massive spending bills into law. Justice Breyer announces his retirement afterwards and is replaced by a non-Federalist society lunatic. Biden rides increased white college grad turnout to a mid-term hold of the House and Senate.
Blue skys, baby.
