WASHINGTON, DC- Remember the time unhinged right-wing extremists got hacked off, threatened Supreme Court justices, and doxed their home addresses after they approved gay marriage? Neither do we.
What we will always remember however is how unhinged radical leftists threatened Supreme Court justices to the point where the US Marshals Service has been forced to provide 24/7 security at their homes.
According to the Washington Examiner, the Marshals have been requested by Attorney General Merrick Garland to provide security at the homes of conservative justices in light of recent deranged protests occurring throughout the country by angry liberals upset that they may ostensibly lose the right to murder unborn children.
Of course, if liberals had been paying attention in school about how the whole US Constitution thing works, they might realize that even if the high court strikes down Roe v. Wade, the pro-baby murder gang will still be able to get their abortions in states which permit it.
For example, women (sorry, don’t mean to “misgender”) who want to get an abortion in states such as for example California and New York will be able to do so right up until the child is ready to be born. It will change nothing.
“At the Attorney General’s direction, the U.S. Marshals service accelerated the provision of around-the-clock security at the homes of all Justices, among other actions, last week,” according to a Justice Department press readout.
After remaining silent for a couple of weeks over the impending decision and the sometimes violent protests which accompanied it, Garland last week spoke out (finally) against the “rise of violence and unlawful threats of violence” directed at public servants, saying they are “unacceptable and dangerous to our democracy.”
“I want to be clear. While people vote, argue, and debate in a democracy, we must not—we cannot—allow violence or unlawful threats of violence to permeate our national life. The Justice Department will not tolerate violence or threats of violence against judges or any other public servants at work, home, or any other location,” Garland added.
In addition, the Justice Department discussed plans to “enhance coordination, intelligence sharing, and technical support as it relates to judicial security” in the coming weeks and months following the unhinged protests earlier this month outside the homes of several conservative-leaning Supreme Court justices.
Prior to Garland’s order being released, a declassified memo from the Department of Homeland Security dated May 13 spoke to an “increase” in political violence if and when the Supreme Court returns a ruling similar to the draft opinion leaked May 2.
The memo, obtained by Axios led to some evasion from the Department of Homeland Security, which didn’t answer question about its veracity but told the Washington Examiner that it “is committed to protecting Americans’ freedom of speech and other civil rights and civil liberties, including the right to peacefully protest.”
In anticipation of possible violent protests at the Supreme Court building, fencing was erected to protect both the infrastructure as well as the justices.
It is expected that a final ruling in the case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, is expected prior to the end of the court’s term in either late June or July.
For more on the pro-abortion zealots, we invite you to:
WASHINGTON, DC- “Domestic terrorism as defined by the White House, from a June 2021 release:
“…activities that involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; appear to be intended to intimidate or coerce a civilian population, to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion, or to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.” [emphasis added]
With that in mind, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) wrote to the Department of Justice last week, asking why that agency has not labeled a violent attack on a Madison, Wisconsin anti-abortion center as “domestic terrorism.”
Last week, a group of pro-abortion zealots attacked the Wisconsin Family Action clinic in Madison with Molotov cocktails in response to an illegal leak of a draft opinion from the Supreme Court indicating the probable overturn of Roe v. Wade, the ill-advised and seemingly unconstitutional ruling which gives women a constitutional right to murder their unborn children.
On May 13, Johnson’s office issued a press release announcing Johnson’s letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas regarding collective silence on the attack in Madison.
In the attack, the pro-abortion group, Jane’s Revenge also painted a threat on the building, “If abortions aren’t safe then you aren’t either.” That would seem to indicate an existential threat to that facility.
In his letter, Johnson took the agencies, along with Joe Biden to task, claiming none have made public remarks, nor have issued statements condemning the Madison attack.
“I want to reemphasize that your silence on this abhorrent attack against a pro-life organization is deafening and your continued silence could be construed as a tacit endorsement of such attacks against those who hold different or opposing political believes from those of this Administration,” he wrote.
Continuing, Johnson asked, “What actions are DOJ, FBI and DHS taking to assist state and local law enforcement regarding incidents of harassment, intimidation, and potential domestic threats against pro-life organizations?”
The Federalist reports that Jane’s Revenge, which claimed responsibility for the attack also issued a statement, in which they wrote:
“Wisconsin is the first flashpoint, but we are all over the US, and we will issue no further warnings.” They also further warned that “next time the infrastructure of the enslavers will not survive.”
In his letter, Johnson further admonished the violent protesters who engaged in sometimes violent and deadly protests in 2020.
“In 2020, extremists exploited demonstrations across the country to incite riots that resulted in the loss of life, more than 2,000 injuries to law enforcement officers, and over $1 billion in property damage,” Johnson wrote, citing International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) numbers.
“There are currently mobs outside the residences of the Supreme Court, Justices appointed by Presidents George W. bush and Donald Trump…and once again, DOJ, FBI, and DHS have yet to condemn these activities.”
Despite the fact that such protests are against federal law, and in the case of Virginia state law, the demonstrations have been endorsed by the White House.
“I know that there is an outrage right now about protests that have been peaceful to date,” outgoing White House flack Jen Psaki said in a press briefing last week. “We certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges’ homes.”
In his letter, Johnson gave Garland, Wray and Mayorkas until May 27 to respond to his letter while admonishing them for their silence, relating their silence to the targeting of parents at school board meetings last year with them being compared to domestic terrorists.
Johnson then outlined three requests:
- Has DHS or FBI designated the group, “Jane’s Revenge,” as a domestic violent extremist organization? IF not, please provide your reasoning.
- Will DOJ provide resources to identify and prosecute those responsible for the attack to the Madison Police Department?
- What actions are DOJ, FBI, and DHS taking to assist state and local law enforcement regarding incidents of harassment, intimidation, and potential domestic threats against pro-life organizations?
Senator Johnson probably shouldn’t hold his breath, given the radical nature of this administration.
The thing with domestic violence and “terror” threats all depends on which side of the political spectrum you reside. For a previous piece on this topic, we invite you to:
The following contains content which is editorial in nature and reflects the opinion of the writer.
WASHINGTON, DC- Freedom of speech? Apparently, not anymore. The New York Post reports that a threat bulletin issued by the Department of Homeland Security has identified its latest “terror” threat—people who engage in “the proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions.” Gee, that almost sounds like claiming the 2022 mid-term elections are at risk of election fraud because of—Republicans?

Not really. The bulletin is clearly targeting those who don’t bend over, grab their ankles, and accept the narrative coming out of the White House, the CDC, or any other government agency with initials. Think saying that some people have negative reactions to the jab…or that masks are hurting the psychological well-being of children…or that Joe Biden isn’t a cognitive mess. You get the idea.
The bulletin, in effect until June 7, laid the blame on an “online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories [like Russia collusion maybe?] and other forms of mis-, dis- and mal-information introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic real threat actors.”
In other words, the DHS and by extension the Biden administration is targeting political opponents or enemies of the ruling class. There can be no other interpretation.
The bulletin continued:
“These actors seek to exacerbate societal friction to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions to encourage unrest, which could potentially inspire acts of violence [like Black Lives Matter and Antifa?]. Mass casualty attacks and other acts of targeted violence conducted by lone offenders and small groups acting in furtherance of ideological beliefs and/or personal grievances pose an ongoing threat to the nation.”
In other words, George Orwell’s 1984, and it’s “thought police” have gone from a dystopian novel to reality in Joe Biden’s America.
The DHS bulletin then began to address some “key factors contributing to the current heightened threat environment.”
“[T]here is widespread online proliferation of false or misleading narratives regarding unsubstantiated widespread election fraud and COVID-19. Grievances associated with these themes inspired violent extremist attacks during 2021.”
“Extremist attacks” and COVID-19? Where? When? “Online proliferation of false or misleading narratives regarding unsubstantiated widespread election fraud?”
Oh, you mean like in 2016 and 2017? You mean when Stacey Abrams still has refused to concede the 2018 Georgia governor’s race?

Hillary Clinton still refusing to admit she lost the 2016 election?
Hillary Clinton has delivered the speech she would have given had she won the 2016 election. The arrogance is astonishing. She still thinks she was the rightful victor, that she was born to be president. She holds voters in utter contempt, says Tim Blackhttps://t.co/LAHuFGbpNq

Why is DHS completely ignoring month upon month of violent riots in 2020 all across the country? We know why. It doesn’t fit the desired narrative.

Not surprisingly, the Post noted that the DHS bulletin didn’t provide specific examples of either election fraud or COVID-19 attacks, although one could certainly make the argument that January 6 devolved into violence, although referring to it as a “violent extremist attack” is a bit of hyperbole.
The DHS bulletin is so full of holes it would give a block of Swiss cheese a run for its money.
“The months preceding the upcoming 2022 midterm elections could provide additional opportunities for these extremists and other individuals to call for violence directed at democratic institutions, political candidates, party offices, election events, and election workers,” DHS continued.
The bulletin again referred to COVID-19 and again alleged “domestic violent extremists” using them to “justify violence since 2020,” yet once again, could not provide a single example of such violence surrounding COVID-19 measures.
Yet they claim such measures could be “used by domestic violent extremists to justify violence since 2020 and could continue to inspire these extremists to target government, healthcare, and academic institutions that they associate with those measures.” This is pure fantasy.
This is just the latest case of the Biden administration weaponizing branches of the federal government to target political opponents, having used the Department of Justice last year to target school parents speaking out at school board meetings. That wasn’t lost on conservative podcast host Liz Wheeler, who made that exact allegation:
“DHS declares heightened alert…despite the threat environment not being different than a year ago,” she tweeted. “So why now? Well, the easiest person to deplatform is a terrorist…so DHS labels those questioning the left’s covid narrative as terrorists.”
THREAD: This is the most shocking thing I’ve read in a while. This document was published by DHS. Biden is weaponizing DHS to label… well, you… as a terrorist. 1/ https://t.co/Db46C752LB

“Welcome to your communist future,” she added. “You may not criticize the govt or you will be imprisoned. That is the logical conclusion of this hideous document.”
Oh yeah, the government also wants to teach you how to be obedient stooges. Check this out:
