A pro-life group called Created Equal has said the man who attempted to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was inspired by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s comments about the Justice from 2020.

In a statement, Created Equal exclaimed “Today, an abortion advocate apparently acted on the incendiary words of Senator Chuck Schumer that Justice Brett Kavanaugh ‘will pay the price.’ The inflammatory rhetoric of the left is leading to violence. It’s time for the Biden Administration to publicly call for abortion advocates to turn down the temperature.”

In a speech just outside the Supreme Court in March of 2020, Schumer said Kavanaugh has “released the whirlwind and you will pay the price.”

Schumer quickly walked back his comments, stating, “Now, I should not have used the words I used yesterday. They didn’t come out the way I intended to. My point was that there would be political consequences–political consequences–for President Trump and Senate Republicans if the Supreme Court, with the newly confirmed Justices, stripped away a woman’s right to choose. Of course, I didn’t intend to suggest anything other than political and public opinion consequences for the Supreme Court, and it is a gross distortion to imply otherwise.”

Roske was charged with the attempted murder of a Supreme Court Justice after he was allegedly seen carrying a gun, knife, and pepper spray outside of Kavanaugh’s Maryland home on early Wednesday morning, according to sources.

The suspect arrested near Justice Kavanaugh’s Maryland home was identified as 26-year-old Nicholas Roske from California. Roske, who was armed, told authorities he was “upset about the leak of a recent Supreme Court draft decision regarding the right to an abortion as well as the recent school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.”

He also said that he believed Kavanaugh “would side with Second Amendment decisions that would loosen gun control laws,” according to the affidavit.

Roske was carrying a gun, knife and pepper spray at the time of his arrest and had made violent threats against Kavanaugh, sources said. Roske was picked up on a nearby street after calling police on 911 to report himself.

A criminal complaint obtained by Fox News shows that Roske is being charged with attempting to murder a United States Supreme Court Justice. He is scheduled to have a first appearance in federal court in Maryland Wednesday afternoon.

Growing IRS is Biggest Police State Expansion in History

The Democrats’ new reconciliation bill is “going to be the largest expansion of the domestic police state in American history” reports The Federalist. The Federal Government “already collects $4.1 trillion every year—or $12,300 for every citizen” yet believes it “needs 80 new battalions of new IRS cops.”

The job posting itself listed prerequisites for agents who can “Carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre promised that the IRS wouldn’t engage in new audits of anyone making under $400,000, an attempt at saying, essentially, the middle class is ‘safe.’

Connecticut’s Chris Murphy also said that the bill was passed to stop an “epidemic of tax cheating amongst the millionaires and billionaires” and promised that “audit rates won’t increase for anyone making under $400K.”

“This is a lie” adds The Federalist. “Nothing in the bill that Democrats passed through the Senate limits audits. Murphy, along with every other Democrat in the Senate, voted against a Republican amendment that would have prevented new agents from auditing individuals and small businesses with less than $400,000 of taxable income.”

The IRS doesn’t simply collect taxes, it also enforces speech codes. The Federalist reminds readers:

This is what empowered Lois Lerner to target conservatives groups – “crazies and “a—holes” — who used words like “Tea Party” or “patriots” in their names. But, even at the time, leftists at The New York Times editorial board praised the IRS for going after conservative groups because they did not “primarily” engage in “social welfare,” and so did not deserve an exemption under Section 501(c)(4) of the tax code. Has anything in the evolution of the Democratic Party given you confidence that such power would not be abused or that an engorged IRS would be immune from political pressure?

Wrestling with a insanely complex tax code — nearly 8 million words — costs Americans billions every year. Rather than flattening and simplifying this astonishingly convoluted code, which not only would have saved citizens but the government money, Democrats decided we needed up to another 87,000 people to enforce it.
