What if Democrats/Socialists/Communists decided packing the Supreme Court wasn’t going to work, or in the alternative, they decided to put it on the back burner while never entirely giving it up?  If so, what tactic would they come up with to achieve their ultimate goal?  What goal, you ask?  Turning the Supreme Court into an arm of the D/S/C Party, a rubber stamp for what they can’t get legitimately through the legislative process, for what the American people don’t want, cover for ignoring or destroying the Constitution, bit by bit.

But what would that alternative be?  It’s simplicity itself: assassinate enough of the Justices of the Supreme Court that actually uphold the Constitution so Biden’s handlers can appoint the right—left—kind of justice, you know, those of the right gender—whatever that is—and the right race—whatever the left candidates might claim to hold.  The best part is they don’t have to themselves commit murder.  Merely encourage the most deranged among them, wink at blatant violations of the law as deranged militants intimidate Justices and their families, and refuse to condemn it all.  But there’s a problem: assuming we still have a representative republic, they have to pull all of this off before the Mid Terms.  Of course, if Republicans don’t gain control of the Senate, they have another two+ years.

Crazy talk?  Lunatic conspiracy theory?  Not so much: 

A man with a gun and a knife was detained by police early Wednesday morning near Brett M. Kavanaugh’s Maryland home after making threats against the Supreme Court justice, according to federal officials.

According to a criminal complaint charging Nicholas John Roske with attempted murder of a federal judge, two U.S. Deputy Marshals spotted Roske get out of a cab in front of Kavanaugh’s home at approximately 1:05 a.m. He looked at the marshals and then walked down the street. Not long after, Montgomery County got the call from Roske saying he was suicidal and came to kill Kavanaugh.
Montgomery County Police Department officers were dispatched and arrested Roske without incident while he was still on the phone with 911, according to the affidavit. In his suitcase and backpack were a Glock 17 with two magazines and ammunition, pepper spray, a tactical knife, a hammer, a screwdriver, a crow bar, zip ties and duct tape, along with other gear.

After his arrest, according to the affidavit, Roske told police he was upset over the leaked draft of an opinion that would overturn the constitutional right to abortion and also over the recent school shooting in Uvalde, Tex. He thought Kavanaugh would support looser gun laws. He decided to kill Kavanaugh and then himself, according to the police officer, thinking it would give his life purpose.

Roske was particularly upset not just about how Kavanaugh might vote on gun control, but about his potential abortion ruling.  Consider this from Powerline’s John Hinderaker:

Would-be assassin Nicholas Roske failed to carry out his mission of assassinating Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. This isn’t surprising: the sort of person who acts on incitement from the likes of Chuck Schumer is more or less deranged, and more or less incompetent. Yet there are more where Roske came from, and one of them may succeed.

What do the Democrats think about attempted assassinations of Supreme Court justices? To my knowledge, neither Schumer nor Joe Biden’s handlers have commented. I surmise that the Democrats are hoping for one or more assassinations to take place before Biden is hustled out of the White House, so that his handlers can appoint a successor.

The attempt on Kavanaugh’s life has only emboldened the Democrats’ efforts to intimidate conservative justices. Thus, the dark money group called ‘Ruth Sent Us,’ which has been behind much of the publication of justices’ home addresses and threats against their families, is calling for action against Justice Amy Barrett:

For D/S/Cs, “silence is violence.”  When Americans don’t support whatever they want in exactly the language they demand, it’s a grave offense.  They want to murder children, they’re racists, they’re transphobes, they’re white supremacists, they’re literally Hitler and worse whatever “worse” might be this week.  Last week it was “ultra MAGA, but that didn’t work out so well.  Congressional D/S/Cs have been silently violent on illegal “protests”—actually blatant intimidation at the homes of justices.  They have also remained almost entirely silent on the assassination attempt against Justice Kavanaugh.  Even Bill Maher has admitted the D/S/C Media propaganda arm is biased for trying to bury the story.  D/S/Cs have, however, spoken loudly to oppose any attempt to provide enhanced protection for the justices and their families:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez self-hyped her effort to block a Senate-approved bill that would step up security protections for Supreme Court justices and their immediate family members Thursday — a day after an armed man was arrested for attempting to murder Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is also blocking this bill in the House:  

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got in a huff with a reporter while insisting Thursday that Supreme Court justices have adequate protection — even after a serious bid to assassinate Justice Brett Kavanaugh at his Maryland home was foiled just a day earlier.

As Pelosi left her weekly press conference, she stopped to address a reporter who shouted: ‘You said the justices are protected, but there was an attempt on Justice Kavanaugh’s life.’

‘And he’s protected,’ Pelosi snapped back. ‘He’s protected. The justices are protected.’

Congressional Republicans have urged the House to approve a Senate-passed bill that would give the nation’s leading jurists and their families the same level of security as legislators and White House officials. The Senate passed the bill by unanimous consent, but the measure has languished before the House for the past month.

And what of those “protests,” which began after D/S/C groups published the addresses of the justices?  How did our Department of Justice respond to serial felony violations of federal law?  Which federal law?  This one:  

8 U.S.C. § 1507 – U.S. Code – Unannotated Title 18. Crimes and Criminal Procedure § 1507. Picketing or parading

Whoever, with the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer, in the discharge of his duty, pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer, or with such intent uses any sound-truck or similar device or resorts to any other demonstration in or near any such building or residence, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.

What other possible reason could there be for such protests other than intimidating, in the language of the statue: “…of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge…” the justices?  By their mere presence they’re saying: “we know where you live.  We can get to you and you family whenever we want.” It is no coincidence this is happening soon after the leak of a draft abortion decision, and before the final decision of the Court is released.

The Biden Meat Puppet Administration DOJ has done nothing.  They refuse to arrest or prosecute anyone for violation of this specific law.  Senator Tom Cotton is not impressed:  

TOM COTTON: There’s an explicit federal law against protesting in front of the homes of judges or jurors. Yet again, the feckless and hapless Attorney General Merrick Garland did nothing even though he had advanced knowledge. He should resign in disgrace. And if he won’t resign in disgrace, then we should start impeachment proceedings against him in January when we are in control of Congress. Because the rule of law in this country must be enforced evenly, irrespective of one’s political parties and views

The involved justices live in Virginia, and there is a similar law there:  

2021 Code of Virginia
Title 18.2 – Crimes and Offenses Generally
Chapter 9 – Crimes Against Peace and Order
§ 18.2-419. Picketing or disrupting tranquility of home

Any person who shall engage in picketing before or about the residence or dwelling place of any individual, or who shall assemble with another person or persons in a manner which disrupts or threatens to disrupt any individual’s right to tranquility in his home, shall be guilty of a Class 3 misdemeanor. Each day on which a violation of this section occurs shall constitute a separate offense. [skip]

Notwithstanding the penalties herein provided, any court of general equity jurisdiction may enjoin conduct, or threatened conduct, proscribed by this article, and may in any such proceeding award damages, including punitive damages, against the persons found guilty of actions made unlawful by this section.

Yet Virginia’s recently elected Republican Governor Youngkin and Attorney General Jason Miyares have yet to make a single arrest. 

He quickly took this down, but the Internet is forever, and he’s far from the only one expressing this sentiment…

You’re making a mountain out of a molehill!  This isn’t a real problem!  Consider this from Thomas Lifson: 

poll taken by the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center shows very disturbing levels of support among younger Americans for “assassinating a politician who is harming the country or our democracy.”  In particular, those under age 50, labeled as “younger” by the poll, approached half supporting assassination.

Among males — the group far more likely to engage in assassinations (as in the case of the recently arrested attacker at Justice Kavanaugh’s house) — 44% of younger Democrats expressed approval, compared to 34% of Republicans.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is an infamous organ of the Left, yet any poll indicating that kind of support for political assassination is sobering.  Consider too these 2020 comments from Senator Chuck Schumer:

Schumer later tried to walk back his threat, saying he was talking about political consequences, but Supreme Court Justices are appointed for life.  They don’t periodically face the voters.  One might suggest Schumer now intends to try to impeach justices whenever he thinks it politically advantageous, but that’s not at all what he said or what he tried to walk back.

If government valued the rule of law…

Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was pressed on the issue:

Her reply, ostensibly on behalf of President Biden was not encouraging:

Psaki was encouraging violations of federal law.  Her successor has done no better at upholding the rule of law.  President Biden has made a weak rhetorical gesture, but has not followed it up with any kind of action.

This murderous rhetoric, this assassination attempt and encouragement of assassination is not new.  Readers will recall the 2017 assassination attempt against multiple Republicans, an attempt that nearly killed Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA).  It took the FBI substantial time to admit the attack was actual, rather than invented, domestic terrorism:

Final Thoughts: We cannot endure as a nation under a two-tiered system of justice.  This is very much a right vs. left issue, Normal Americans vs. D/S/Cs, but that cannot be true unless the rule of law no longer holds.  No leftist justice has been doxed.  There are no protestors at their homes. They need not worry about assassination because their political, and often, judicial views are the views of the D/S/C mob.  The media speaks of “conservative” and “progressive” justices, and “conservative” and “progressive decisions, but that’s a perversion of our Republican system of government, and a cynical political calculation.

Progressive justices believe the ends justify the means, and if they have to make things up, ignore the Constitution to get what they want, they will. Thus has every current progressive justice on the Court sworn fidelity to the Second Amendment during their confirmation hearings, yet voted against it whenever they could.  Conservative justices are not so politically inclined.  They honor their oaths to decide cases on the Constitution.  If the Constitution doesn’t allow it, regardless of their personal inclinations, it’s unconstitutional.  Progressive justices don’t always betray the Constitution, but on hot button progressive issues, their votes are easily foretold.  This problem can only worsen when justices are chosen not on their fidelity to the Constitution, but on their race and/or gender.  

If indeed Roe is overturned, it will not be because a majority of the justices wish to deny women any “right,” but because the Constitution is silent on abortion.  There is simply no right to abortion to be found therein.  Accordingly, the decision belongs in state legislatures.  Even honest, self-identified leftist legal scholars have been admitting this since Roe was decided, though virtually none have specifically called for overturning it because leftist political considerations virtually always outweigh the Constitution and rule of law.

D/S/C’s motivation for court packing and now, encouraging assassination, is they want to politicize, and thereby control, the Supreme Court.  They want to turn it into a super legislature that will give them what they cannot get through the legitimate, constitutional legislative process.  They want to federalize elections so they can never again lose.  They want government funded health care, a Green regime that will return America to pre-industrial squalor, and so much more.  This is why they won’t honestly and in unmistakable terms condemn assassination rhetoric.  This is why they won’t condemn and impeach Merrick Garland for refusing to arrest and prosecute intentional, serial violations of federal law.  The evil rhetoric, Garland, their Antifa and other paramilitary thugs, their “mostly peaceful protestors” are all a part of their campaign to “fundamentally transform” America into a socialist utopia.

America is a trust society.  We trust our votes matter.  We trust elections are honest.  We trust the courts adhere to the rule of law, not the corruption of politics.  If the Supreme Court should ever bow to the pressure of the mob, and/or the threat of assassination, trust between the justices would be lost.  There would be no end to “protests” and threats, and leftist justices would never again need to try to persuade their colleagues, nor would they need law clerks; there would be nothing to research.  Their desires would become law by default, the Constitution be damned.

If the Supreme Court bows to the mob, if threats of violence decide for them, why should Americans obey their rulings?

Encouraging the murder of Supreme Court justices or even politicians is Stalinist.  It’s the status quo in third world, communist dictatorships.  Even thinking about, let alone advocating, it is materially destructive to our Republic, as is refusing to wholeheartedly condemn those who do.  Refusing to arrest and prosecute those who support assassination by violating the law is even more destructive, because it encourages assassination, and when that line is crossed, what manner of political violence remains taboo?  What is left of the rule of law?  Without the rule of law, America is fundamentally transformed.

Consider who wants that and why.  Normal Americans are not violating federal law at the homes of leftist justices in an attempt to force them to change their votes.

If the Stalinist left succeeds in changing Supreme Court decisions, they will have made a giant, perhaps irreversible, step toward that deranged, totalitarian utopia.  They know it all too well.  If we want to preserve our representative republic, Americans had better know it too, and do what is necessary to ensure they fail.
