The deception with which John Hickenlooper skates over the question of Supreme Court packing and pretends to think it means Senate Republicans are rushing too fast to confirm a duly nominated judge is alarming.
Not only does it display Hickenlooper’s willingness to blatantly lie, but it exposes the lengths to which the Democrat Party’s is willing to go to stack the U.S. Senate with their own members for permanent control.
Phenomenal — @Hickenlooper follows the Biden model and refuses to answer whether he'll support court packing.
Meanwhile NYT poll today showed Americans oppose court packing 58/31. https://t.co/7iSCsjVLCc

They’re willing to lie, cheat, and then steal.
Democrats aren’t looking to temporarily take control of the U.S. Senate. Their playbook, which they’ve not kept secret, is a permanent shift in power to one-party rule.
That’s why it’s critical the Colorado media do their job and insist Hickenlooper answer questions truthfully about where he stands on ending the filibuster, extending statehood to the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, and adding more judges to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Democrats make no secret they want to eliminate the filibuster if they take control of the Senate in January.
Then Democrats would have a clear path to pursue statehood for DC, which the House passed in June. Chuck Schumer, who would lead Senate Democrats if they take the majority, also wants statehood for Puerto Rico.
That boosts the number of Senate seats to 104 and all four of the new senators would likely vote Democrat.
With more Senate votes and no filibuster to slow their roll, a Democrat White House and Congress have the power to stack the Supreme Court with an additional four judges, the minimum number Democrats need to swing the court to an ideologically far-left direction.
Joe Biden is being coy and says he will make his views clear on stacking the court after the election, while Hickenlooper plays dumb and pretends he doesn’t understand the question.
So here are the questions for Hickenlooper:
Would you support adding more judges to the nine-member Supreme Court?
Would you support ending the filibuster?
Do you support statehood for D.C. and Puerto Rico?
And, how do you think permanent one-party rule is good for America?
