More Violent Protests Ensue as Dobbs Decision Looms

So far, we've seen protests targeting Supreme Court Justices and their children, pregnancy centers being routinely firebombed, and churches ruthlessly targeted and attacked by radical pro-choice advocates.  All of this and more following the leaked opinion in the Dobbs case that could overturn Roe v. Wade, and yet the Left refuses to condemn the most radical displays of violence by those on their side.

ICYMI: Former Democrat Congressman Pleads Guilty to Election Fraud

In case you missed it: a former U.S. Congressman, Democrat Michael "Ozzie" Myers (PA), pleaded guilty on Monday to multiple election fraud charges including:

"conspiracy to deprive voters of civil rights, bribery, obstruction of justice, falsification of voting records, and conspiring to illegally vote in a federal election for orchestrating schemes to fraudulently stuff the ballot boxes for specific Democratic candidates in the 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 Pennsylvania elections."

Democrats Endanger Justices, Refuse to Help

Justice Kavanaugh’s would-be assassin is in part the result of a problem created by Democrats who have called for violence against the U.S. Supreme Court’s conservative justices for their support for overruling Roe v. Wade, which was confirmed by the recent Dobbs draft opinion leak.

But worse yet, Democrats not only refuse to condemn the would-be assassin’s actions and other violence against the justices, they are intentionally blocking legislation that would provide the justices clearly needed protection. As Republican Leader Mitch McConnell stated:  

This is exactly why the Senate passed legislation very shortly after the leak to enhance the police protection for the Justices and their families. This is commonsense, noncontroversial legislation that passed this chamber unanimously. 

But House Democrats have spent weeks blocking it. The House Democratic majority has refused to take it up.  That needs to change. Right now. House Democrats must pass this bill and they must do it today. House Democrats need to stop their multi-week blockade against the Supreme Court security bill and pass it before the sun sets today.

San Francisco Liberals Reject Soft-on-Crime DA

In California's primary election yesterday, San Francisco voters overwhelmingly voted to recall rogue liberal prosecutor Chesa Boudin, whose soft-on-crime policies have led to rising crime across the city. The headlines say it all – Progressive San Francisco DA recalled by voters in one of nation's most liberal cities:

San Francisco voted to recall Boudin with 61%, compared to 39% who wanted him to stay as the district attorney, according to results at the time the Associated Press called the race.

[Boudin] faced an onslaught of criticism over his progressive criminal justice policies as those supporting his recall pointed to an increased murder rate, violent crime, shoplifting, burglaries, and an open-air drug trade as reasons to vote for his removal from office.

Ballot Trafficking Highly Unpopular with Americans

As we head into the 2022 midterms, concerns about election integrity remain at an all-time high for voters. And after a Yuma County, Arizona woman recently pled guilty to organizing a ballot trafficking operation in 2020, it's no surprise that concerns about ballot trafficking rank highest. An op-ed by the Honest Elections Project's Jason Snead explains:

One common tactic for committing fraud is known as ballot trafficking or harvesting. Organizers and activists go door-to-door to “help” voters cast their ballots and then collect them, all without any official supervision. Proponents defend the practice as aiding vulnerable voters. In practice, though, vote trafficking often turns these voters into victims.

As Georgetown Chooses the Coward’s Path, Shapiro Resigns

Just days after Georgetown University Law Center reinstated Ilya Shapiro after a four-month-long investigation for an ill-worded tweet, Shapiro proudly resigned.  Georgetown reinstated Shapiro based on the technicality that he was not yet an employee when he tweeted negatively about Biden's narrow-minded pool of potential SCOTUS nominees, a move that led students and faculty at the law school to protest him being hired.  But in resigning, Shapiro is standing up for free speech, contrary to Georgetown Law Center’s spineless actions, which were not based on law school policy but rather based in part on an effort to avoid "woke" student backlash.  As FIRE points out:

When Georgetown reinstated Shapiro, it said that university policies did not apply to him when he tweeted on Jan. 26, as his employment was to begin Feb. 1. The university reasoned it could not punish him for tweets made when he was not a university employee. As Shapiro said in his resignation letter, Georgetown investigated him for four months when the situation “apparently could’ve been resolved by looking at a calendar.” Georgetown’s investigation was primarily calendar based, concluding just days after its academic calendar ended — and just days after commencement, when the majority of students left campus for the summer. (emphasis added).

SCOTUS Leaker Must be Found to Restore Supreme Court's Integrity

Weeks after a draft opinion was leaked in what many regard as the most prominent decision the Supreme Court will make in recent history, one question remains unanswered: Who did it? 

The Supreme Court has a long-standing history of being a highly respected institution that is secure from outside influence. But in recent years, likely due to the appointment of conservative Justices on the Supreme Court, the Left has continuously tried to tear down the Court's reputation, claiming its functions "undermine our American democracy." While the leaker and his or her political affiliation have yet to be determined, the leak of any opinion, especially in a case as significant as the Dobbs case, erodes the legitimacy of the Court and undermines our American democracy.
