AOC Brags about Blocking Justice Security Bill as Gun Control Stalls

Progressive member of “the Squad” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez boasted of her part in ensuring a lack of security for Supreme Court Justices. As her lackluster defense, Ocasio-Cortez said she would not vote to enhance safety measures for Justices if others would not support drastic gun control measures.

“I wake up this morning and I start to hear murmurs that there is going to be an attempt to pass the Supreme Court Supplemental Protection Bill the day after gun safety legislation for schools and kids and people is stalled” said AOC in a video posted to her Instagram stories of her allegedly “rushing” to the floor of the House of Representatives in order to object to increasing police protection for Supreme Court justices and their families. “Oh, so we can pass protections for us and here easily, right? But we can’t pass protections for everyday people? I think not” she continued.

Newsweek reports that the bill was passed unanimously on May 9 by the Senate, but was being voted on in the House and “has taken on greater importance following the arrest of a man on Wednesday who was allegedly planning to murder Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.”

Caring Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi had zero concern for the wellbeing of Justice Kavanaugh or the others, following the leaked draft of a decision which could affect Roe v. Wade: “There will be a bill but nobody is in danger over the weekend because of us not having a bill” said Pelosi.

The bill aims “to increase protection for the nine justices, their families and Court staff has stalled amid a dispute between Democrats and Republicans over language House Democrats want to add to the bill that would extend protections to the families of other staff who work for the Court, such as clerks. No agreement has been reached on the Democrats’ proposal” adds Newsweek.

Robert De Niro anti-Trump speech mysteriously replaced in teleprompter at Awards Show

Actor Robert De Niro got a taste of Hollywood’s own medicine when he was reportedly unable to deliver his planned Trump-bashing speech at an awards show. The “Killers of the Flower Moon” actor spoke at Monday’s Gotham Awards, but says when he took the stage he discovered that his anti-Trump remarks had been altered.

Variety reports:

The actor said he had not been informed of the changes, which took out any mention of the former president. De Niro, who was on hand to present “Killers of the Flower Moon” with the Gotham Historical Icon and Creator Tribute, criticized the awards show and Apple. “I don’t feel like thanking them at all for what they did,” he said. “How dare they do that, actually.”

According to sources with knowledge of the show, a revised version of the speech was placed into the teleprompter less than ten minutes before the event started. Reportedly the speech was altered at the behest of Apple, the film’s producer.

The source says the company was responding to feedback from the filmmaking team that wanted the actor’s remarks to be centered on the movie. However, a source close to the film denied that there was any censorship involved and said that the incident was a miscommunication.

There had been multiple versions of De Niro’s speech and there was a desire to focus solely on the moviemakers and their artistry, according to the source. Apple and the filmmakers were unaware that De Niro hadn’t signed off on the final draft, the source maintained.

De Niro did however take the opportunity to criticize Trump regardless of the prompter; the actor read his remarks from his phone. “Lying has become just another tool in the charlatan’s arsenal,” De Niro said. “The former president lied to us more than 30,000 times during his four years in office. And he’s keeping up the pace in his current campaign of retribution. But with all his lies, he can’t hide his soul. He attacks the weak, destroys the gifts of nature and shows disrespect, for example, by using ‘Pocahontas’ as a slur” he stated.
