Is it constitutional to 'pack' the supreme court with more justices? | Just The FAQs 1


The Supreme Court didn't always have nine justices, in fact, it had more. But what changed and made nine the number that stuck?

WASHINGTON – Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said he's "not a fan" of expanding the size of the Supreme Court, giving his clearest position on the matter since the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg last month.

Biden made the remarks during an interview Monday with WKRC-TV in Cincinnati as the Senate conducts hearings this week with President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

"I'm not a fan of court packing but I don't want to get off on that whole issue," Biden said. "I want to keep focused. The president would love nothing better than to fight about whether or not I would, in fact, pack the court or not pack the court.”

    *The SECRET of All Secret Societies*

    *The Third Eye. The Pyramids.*

    The Third Eye = Telepaths, psychics. Nearly half of the global population is telepathic/psychic. Referred to in the modern day, as ‘Awakening/Opening the Third Eye’, telepaths/psychics aren’t permitted to disclose much information to those who are not awake/aware i.e. telepathic/psychic. There are rules. There is a policing force also made of secret societies.

    The Pyramids = Ancient Pyramids of Egypt. Regarded as mysterious, with questions remaining to present day as to the purpose of their construction, answers are kept hidden within secret societies and the minds of telepaths. Revealed to only those who awaken their third eye and become telepathic, is the marvel of electricity existing in ancient times. Concepts of Free Energy are originally derived from the ancient pyramids, known for producing free electricity in mass volumes, instantaneously. This secret along with the actual methods that were used and needed to produce free energy are kept secret by half the world and regulated by secret societies. The pyramids were turned OFF a long time ago, they can be turned ON today if the secret and hidden powers to be wanted the world to have free energy.

    How? Electrical components, Inductors and Transformers (coils), do not transfer electricity but actually create free electricity. Solar energy fed back into an inductor or transformer, can create unlimited electricity instantaneously. Norms (non-telepaths), are often discouraged and confused when attempting to study electrical engineering or physics due to the false assertion of Electrons. There are no such thing as electrons, they are taught only to confuse norms so they don’t figure out the solution to the worlds energy problems.

    There is a reason why the cartoon ‘Transformers’ was created, along with the lyric in it’s theme song, “Transformers – More Than Meets The Eye.”

    Trump is CURED!! For more Secrets Revealed publicly, Vote Trump!!

    God Bless Sirius and the Grey Aliens.

    God bless QANON.

    Not unconstitutional, but highly unethical. However, we can set it to 9 members with extra language to explain what their role is.

  7. There should be 12 Associate Justices, like a regular jury, plus the Chief Justice to break any ties.
