Biden Already Worried About ‘Extreme’ Supreme Court As New Term Begins

OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.


The Supreme Court is back for a new term and the court will hear a growing list of cases that could transform the nation — and President Joe Biden is already complaining.

During an interview with ProPublica, Biden claimed that the “extreme” Supreme Court, dominated by justices nominated by former President Donald Trump, can’t be relied upon to uphold the rule of law.

“I worry because I know that if the other team, the Maga Republicans, win, they don’t want to uphold the rule of law,” Biden said. “I do think at the end of the day, this court, which has been one of the most extreme courts, I still think in the basic fundamentals of rule of law, that they would sustain the rule of law.”

The Supreme Court has been a thorn in the side of Biden’s administration, frequently ruling against his agenda. But the nation’s highest court appears poised to do even more damage to Biden’s plans to move the country to the far left.

For instance, Biden’s plans to tax ‘the rich’ could soon be axed after the high court ruled earlier this year that Biden’s $430 billion-plus student loan forgiveness was unconstitutional. Biden repeatedly has claimed that he supports the idea of taxing the “wealthiest of the wealthy.”

For example, the case Moore v. United States could greatest influence on Biden, despite the fact that the court will hear cases this fall involving the right to bear arms, the authority of federal agencies, and whether the phrase “Trump too small” can be trademarked.

That debate centers on Biden’s frequently expressed desire for a wealth tax and whether it could be implemented.

Meanwhile, the Court will hear a number of cases this fall that offer promising chances to restrain the federal administrative state.

The court has agreed to rule on cases that contest the constitutionality of an agency funding scheme that is exempt from the congressional appropriations process and regular congressional oversight, as well as the practice of federal courts extending judicial deference to agency interpretations of the laws they are tasked with enforcing.

The court also agreed to hear a case that could bring back the jury trial to a class of civil cases that are currently handled solely by judges who work for administrative agencies. One of the most important cases of the upcoming term may be SEC v. Jarkesy because it may reinstate the right to a jury trial in administrative civil cases, the Daily Signal reported.

The Supreme Court has also burned Biden and Democrats with a number of recent decisions.

The U.S. Supreme Court handed Trump a 2024 election victory and refused to hear a challenge from a long-shot GOP presidential contender who sought to prevent Trump’s name from appearing on the ballot under a provision of the 14th Amendment.

Last month, the Biden administration just got stung with yet another unanimous ruling from the Supreme Court, which of course, included his nominee, Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson. In a 9-0 ruling, the Supreme Court found on Friday that some individuals convicted of gun crimes may receive reduced prison sentences. In those cases, gun-related offenses can be served concurrently.

The Biden administration was not happy back in June when the Supreme Court struck down race-based admission standards for colleges and universities.

Not long ago, the nation’s highest court ruled against states that passed strict gun laws.

The court also threw out Biden’s plan to forgive student loans because it violated the Constitution.

In a crushing blow to unions, a stronghold of the Democrat Party, the Supreme Court also recently ruled that companies can sue unions for financial damage from strikes.
