Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental restructuring if justices do not take steps to "heal" the court in the near future.

The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court's conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.

    How does that work? Can congress just pass some legislation,get a Democrat President to appoint some new judges and declare all illegal migrants U.S citizens so the socialist government can be in place for life like Red China is now.

    Isn't trying to sway or intimidate The Court pretty much the definition of Perverting the course of justice?

    If I were a supreme court judge I wonder what I would be thinking about Democrats in congress threatening me. I can only hope the judges feel the same as I do on this one. :roll:
