GOP pressures AG Garland to ‘enforce the law’ for Supreme Court Justice protesters

Published

Supreme Court

Republican Congresswoman Claudia Tenney of New York is challenging Attorney General Merrick Garland to enforce the law and hold citizens accountable for  targeting the homes of Supreme Court Justices.

Liberals and leftwing politicians have praised an unknown whistleblower for leaking a draft of the Supreme Court’s decision  in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization suggesting a potential plan by the conservative judges to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that protected the right to abortion before fetus viability in the U.S.

Activists published a map with the addresses to the homes of the conservative justices, resulting in mass hysteria and protests at the judges homes.

Rep. Tenney tweeted the letter to Attorney General Garland, signed by herself and five other congressmen. “I led my colleagues in asking AG Garland a simple question: as Supreme Court Justices are being targeted, do you intend to enforce the law?”

“The failure of this Admin to act is a shameless & implicit endorsement of mob rule. The right to peaceful assembly is among our most sacred rights as Americans, but this right does not permit us to intimidate judges, jurors or officers of the court” added Rep. Tenney.

Chicago’s Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot encouraged individuals to protest the justices at their homes and tweeted a “call to arms” word of encouragement.

“To my friends in the LGBTQ+ community — the Supreme Court is coming for us next. This moment has to be a call to arms,” the Chicago mayor tweeted.

The White House also has not condemned the protests nor encouraged the activists to halt their protests. No matter how many Democrats support the protests, the fact of the matter remains: 18 U.S.C. § 1507 prohibits picketing or parading outside a judge’s home to influence them in the discharge of their official duties.

    Watching the demonstrators in yards of justices, they are junkyard people! Crude beyond words so mentally sick we can only wonder how soros found them. It would take far more than a year behind bars to rehab them even in school, with a routine of work study and exercize. One if them said Amy Cimy Barrett, mother if five “ doesn’t know what its like to be pregnant”! They claearly do not read or write. Appear ti be in drugs

    Pressure Garland to enforce the law? Why? If he is failing to follow his oath of office do a very public impeachment.

    Democrats DO NOT FOLLOW THE LAW unless they can benefit from it. Such is the case here for ALL to see. Beatle-Juice Lightfoot should be prosecuted on Federal charges for incitement as well aas those in D.C. who also advocate such wrongful and illegal conduct/behavior. I can vividly see why Merrick Garland WAS NOT confirmed as a SCJ (Supreme Court Justice). Democrats and their “Far-Left” cronies are making a mockery of the United States of America and NO ONE IS PUTING A STOP TO IT…..!!

    Enforcing the law is not optional.

    Our country started going astray when the executive branch started only enforcing laws that someone there thought important. This was most obvious to me under Hussein Obama. And now, they’ve added executive orders and Justice is treating them as law. When you refuse to enforce the will of the people, you’re going to go off the rails.

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

Joe Biden

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
