McCarthy Yells At House Democrats For Refusing To Pass SCOTUS Security Bill

Published

on

On Thursday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) yelled on the House floor as he called for the House to pass a bill that would improve police protection for Supreme Court Justices and their families just one day after a man was arrested after allegedly attempting to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“House Democrats are leaving. Today they want to leave for a long weekend than gave tomorrow back,” McCarthy said. “I spoke to the majority leader [Steny Hoyer (D-MD)] this morning. I told him nobody on this side would object [to] a unanimous consent. He could run that bill to the floor right now and send it to the president so we can protect the Supreme Court.”

“How many times do they have to be threatened? How many people have to be arrested with a gun outside their home? What would have happened had he not called 9-1-1? He didn’t just have a gun. He had zip ties. But somehow you want to leave. This bill could be on the president’s desk right now,” McCarthy added.

The bill McCarthy referenced would have provided the nine justices with security protection similar to the protection provided to members of the legislative and executive branches. The bipartisan bill — sponsored by Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) and Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) —passed the Senate unanimously but was blocked by House Democrats last month.

On Wednesday, Nicholas John Roske was arrested outside Justice Kavanaugh’s home and was charged with “Attempts to kidnap or murder, or threatens to assault, kidnap or murder a United States Judge, to wit: a current Justice of the United States Supreme Court.”

According to FBI special agent Ian Montijo, Roske intended to kill Kavanaugh and then commit suicide.

“Roske then told the detective that he was upset about the leak of a recent Supreme Court draft decision regarding the right to abortion as well as the recent school shooting in Uvalde, Texas,” Montijo wrote in the criminal complaint. “Roske indicated that the Justice that he intended to kill would side with Second Amendment decisions that would loosen gun control laws.”

“Roske stated that he began thinking about how to give his life a purpose and decided that he would kill the Supreme Court Justice after finding the Justice’s Montgomery County address on the Internet. Roske further indicated that he had purchased the Glock pistol and the other items for the purpose of breaking into the Justice’s residence and killing the Justice as well as himself,” Montijo added.

    Perhaps Pelosi’s security should be pulled during the delay she imposed on the House vote. It would send a message to her to shit or get off the pot!!

    What else would you expect from these Demon Demo-rats, they want any Republican-appointed Judges gone even if they have some creep kill one just what they want. They will not support anything that would prevent the killing of a Judge only the sick Obama-appointed ones. The Demon Demo-rats are anti-American, they want the USA to fall on its knees for Joe “the Pedo” Biden. ( did you know that Hunter would share PORN sites with Father Joe as they watched porn Look it up) who is a MEMBER OF Klaus “the NAZI” Schwab, THE NEW WORLD ORDER AND W.E.F. (WORLD ECONOMIC FORM) in other words, OWN NOTHING, NO FREEDOM, NO FREEDOM OF SPEECH, SOCIAL CREDIT SCORE, EVERY MOVE YOU MAKE IS TRACKED AND YOU ARE WATCHED 24 HR. PER DAY, YOU ARE UNDER THEIR TOTAL CONTROL AND IT HAS ALREADY STARTED, SO WAKE UP AND PUSH BACK ON THIS OR ELSE GOODBYE TO YOUR LIFE AS YOU KNOW IT.
    In Canada the DICTATOR CREEPIE Prime Minister JUSTIN “THE DICTATOR” TRUDEAU is trying to get a Bill Passed C11 that they can control and remove anything posts, comments or video, or opinions that don’t approve, there is no freedom of speech or comments allowed only what the “DICTATOR WANTS” period. SO the USA and CANADA CITIZENS OF THEIR COUNTRIES FIGHT THESE Bustards with everything, SPEAK OUT AND WRITE AND COMMENT ABOUT EVERYTHING THESE HEARTLESS, TRAITORS ARE DOING AND LET THEM KNOW THE FIGHT TO TAKE BACK OUR FREEDOM AND COUNTRY FROM THESE TOTALLY LYING CREEPS

    If it was Pelosi or Schumer or any other lifer Dem., you darn straight it would have passed. Our leaders are no longer leaders, they’re greedy self serving monsters destroying our country, if not, the world. All talk and no action, but hey, why should they care, they live in their self contained world with protection from the deeply corrupted news media and paid off officials. Rome was built the same way, and it was destroyed the same way.

    Sorry Leo, I can’t get excited over anything McCarthy does, when he does, which is not too often. Hopefully we will see someone else in place and instead.

    I guarantee you if there were more Dem-friendly justices on the Supreme Court, they would do something about it but since it’s mostly conservative justices, the Dems would be happy in facilitating (by not providing protection) the assassination of any conservative justice so they can appoint a Dem friendly justice to take his place! They make a big stink about Jan. 6 and talk about beefing up security for themselves but not for our Supreme Court justices? That’s nuts! Why isn’t Biden being arrested and tried for treason for allowing the U.S. to be invaded by people from other countries (Mexico and South America) to take control of our country, and Biden stealing our money to give away to the criminals he allows to come into our country illegally. This is treasonous! Why is Biden not being impeached for this dereliction of duty and mismanaging our tax dollars, and not upholding our laws?!?! He keeps trying to blame Russia for everything but it’s his own policy decisions that are causing all the collapse in our country, inflation, then recession and high gas prices. Remember, Biden is the one who shut down the pipeline the first day he got in office. He carelessly rescinded almost everything that Trump did to make this country thrive, just out of spite because he hated Trump, rather than thinking things through first. All this downturn started on Biden’s first day in office. Long before Russia went into Ukraine! But the mainstream liberal brainwashing media don’t want you to know the truth. They just keep pounding away at us with Biden’s lame excuses by repeating it so much that we accept it as truth. Take responsibility for your screw-ups Biden! Why aren’t any of our representatives even saying anything about removing Biden from office? He literally is betraying the U.S. Read up on the WHO World Health Organization taking control of our healthcare and forcing us to be in a One World Order healthcare group as the Dems are pushing us into this One World order crap and taking out identity away. It’s bad enough that Obama with Biden sold us out and took away our healthcare and forced us onto government-controlled healthcare that is downgraded coverage at exorbitant pricing nearly a $1000 mo. for a single adult. How is this better than the free market healthcare we had before Obama and Biden took away our freedom of healthcare?!! What about the millions of U.S. hundred dollar bills on pallets and the weapons and tanks Biden left behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban (our enemy) to have and use against us later down the pike?!! To pull out without a plan first put in place is total irresponsibility of this administration. There was plenty of chatter ahead of time to assume that the Afgahns would not stay in control and run like cowards. They got too use to us doing everything for them the past two decades, why would any intelligent person think they would take care of themselves if we left? There should be a plan B and C in case things go differently but Biden and his administration didn’t think ahead.

    Unfortunately it seems like more and more of the Republican leaders will say something about the other party almost as an appeasement to conservatives. Then their true colors come out–more and more like rinos

    The justices should receive at least the same protection as members of Congress; considering recent events, even more, including their families.

Two Illegal Immigrants Arrested For Allegedly Plotting July 4 Mass Shooting

Published

on

Two illegal immigrants in Virginia have been arrested for allegedly plotting a mass shooting on a July 4 celebration after a “hero citizen” overheard a conversation about the plot and called police.

“A hero citizen picked up the phone and overheard a conversation there was a mass shooting being planned here in the city of Richmond, Virginia,” Richmond Chief of Police Gerald Smith said Wednesday.

“Two illegal immigrants, 52-year-old Julio Alvarado-Dubon and 38-year-old Rolman Balacarcel, were arrested and charged with being a non-U.S. citizens in possession of a gun after police uncovered a plot that the duo planned a mass shooting at Richmond’s July 4 celebration Monday,” Fox News reported. “Smith said that police investigated Alvarado-Dubon based on a tip to police by someone he would only refer to as a ‘hero citizen.’ Police investigated the claims and found Alvarado-Dubon was in possession of two rifles, one handgun, and 223 rounds of ammunition. He was arrested on July 1, while Balacarcel was placed under surveillance and eventually arrested on the same charges on Tuesday.”

Smith also addressed reports that one of the suspects has been deported several times but continued to illegally reenter the United States, saying it was “frustrating” that a person could repeatedly break the law and still be able to plan out a mass murder.

The news comes as illegal immigration has reached the highest level on record with nearly 240,000 migrants being encountered by border officials in May.

“There were an unprecedented 239,416 migrant encounters at the Southern border in May, CBP reports. This is the highest monthly total in DHS history, beating the record that was set the month before in April w/ 234,088,” Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin wrote on Twitter.

National Public Radio Discontinues Reading the Declaration of Inependence

Published

A post by Todd Starnes alerts that National Public Radio (NPR) has ditched its annual ritual of reading the Declaration of Independence. NPR, derisively referred to by Starnes as “National Public Welfare Radio,” announced the cessation of reading the Declaration. Which staffers at the taxpayer-funded radio network had been reading aloud the document since 1988.

The void that would have resulted from not reading the Declaration was not unfilled. “Instead, NPR broadcast an 11-minute conversation about whether or not the Founding Fathers actually meant the words “all men are created equal.” Here’s a link if you’d like to listen to their “screed” (which also reminds us frequently that many of the Founding Fathers owned slaves).

Starnes disclosed that he owns “KWAM, the leading news talk radio station in Memphis, Tennessee. It angers me that my tax dollars are used to prop up a broadcast competitor that spits on our Founding Fathers and our Founding Documents.”

Interestingly, NPR’s newly voiced contempt and cynicism for the Declaration of Independence does not encompass refusing taxpayer-funded government support. Whether or not the Founding Fathers meant what they said and what they wrote may be grist for energetic banter on a radio program that is increasingly committed to shrill progressive virtue signaling. However, the topic of this discussion among smug well-remunerated media activists is irrelevant. The words of the Founding Fathers have been inspirational for two hundred and forty-six years and have been the moral and legal foundation used to free the slaves and develop Constitutional principles to ensure that slavery can never be implemented in this country. Slavery currently exists in several countries now, but NPR is dedicated to ignoring that scourge.
