Targeting Justice

Last week authorities charged 26-year-old Nicholas John Roske of California with the attempted murder of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Cops arrested him near Kavanaugh's home in Maryland. Reports say the suspect was angry with Kavanaugh concerning the potential overturn of Roe v. Wade, as well as the recent mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

From The Flag: It appears the suspect feared Kavanaugh would vote against gun regulations, as a major ruling is upcoming. Here’s more from both sides about the Supreme Court, threats of violence, and what comes next.

RIGHT-LEANING SENTIMENT

The White House Emboldened the Unhinged Left, and Crisis Looms


  • The Biden administration has supported protests outside of justice’s homes, even though that’s illegal, and it directly led to this threat of violence.
  • Petulant leftists see the Supreme Court as a pathway towards whatever they desire, regardless of the political reality.
  • Chief Justice John Roberts is risking both a constitutional crisis and his fellow justice’s well-being by refusing to issue the Supreme Court’s majority opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

“Of course they came for Brett Kavanaugh” Amber Athey, Spectator World: “An incident like this seemed almost inevitable after the draft opinion overturning Roe was leaked last month. Pro-abortion protesters quickly created maps of the conservative Supreme Court justices’ homes and illegally picketed outside day and night. Pro-life pregnancy centers and churches have been repeatedly vandalized and firebombed. These were clear attempts to intimidate the justices into changing their opinion. The White House did the bare minimum and condemned the attempted murder of Kavanaugh. In a statement to the press, deputy press secretary Andrew Bates said that Biden ‘is grateful to law enforcement for quickly taking him into custody’ … Any sane person knows it was just a matter of time before someone tried to whack a Supreme Court justice, and the Biden administration’s decision to egg on those protesters is further proof of their stunning incompetence.”

“Leave the Supreme Court Justices Alone” Malcolm Beifong, American Thinker: “But abortion advocates are such… babies. It’s so much easier for them to let the court decree that they can get their way, than having to win the majority of ordinary people to their cause. The Democratic Party, of which abortion advocates are a large subset, would have us believe they are great champions of democracy, but they don’t seem to be so hot on the idea when their extreme ideas are rejected at the polls … Like a baseball team that can’t pitch well enough to strike out the other side, they pressure the Supreme Court umpires to widen the strike zone when their opponent is at bat. You know, Justice Alito, they’d hate to have to come to your house… you too, Kavanaugh. We need to understand that not everything we think we should be allowed to do is a constitutionally protected right. That is as it should be, and is not the fault of the Supreme Court.”

LEFT-LEANING SENTIMENT

The Breakdown of Civil Order While Blame Is Misplaced


  • The recent murder of a retired federal judge and this alleged assassination attempt directly threaten civil order and society as a whole.
  • Republicans are attempting to smear Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer because he addressed Kavanaugh in a speech two years ago.
  • This needs to be a major wake-up call for all Americans given how close we came to a personal tragedy and constitutional crisis.

“Judge’s murder, Kavanaugh attempt, threatens all our safety” Dennis Aftergut, The Hill Opinion: “Even with the mass shooting epidemic in America… the June 4 murder of former Wisconsin Judge John Roemer stands out as the broadest, clear and present danger to every person’s right to stay alive in peace. As if that were not enough… Maryland police arrested a man with a gun and a knife near Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s D.C.-area home. … He’s been charged with attempted murder. … The breakdown of the rule of law is all around us. … But if one had to pick the most ominous for the rule of law, it is Judge Roemer’s killing. … When judicial officers are killed for having done their job, the threat is to all of our safety. There is no safety in a society without a functioning legal system.”

“Republicans Smearing Chuck Schumer With Kavanaugh Assassination Attempt” Jonathan Chait, Intelligencer Opinion: “The smoking gun linking Schumer to the assassination plot is a speech he gave to a pro-choice rally in 2020. (A relatively long time for incitement to come to fruition.) The portion of the speech in which Schumer was allegedly seeding a murder plot is this: ‘... I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.’ … Was Schumer threatening a violent response? Or was he threatening a political response? The conservatives all simply assume the former and blame Schumer accordingly. This is a strange interpretation to follow in the context of Schumer’s career, which is not as a paramilitary insurgent but as a rumpled parliamentary insider who is known for his inordinate enthusiasm for announcing new funds for local parks and community centers.”

Americans Disapprove of Politicized Supreme Court


A recent poll shows public approval of the Supreme Court is declining. This followed the leaked draft that suggested Roe v. Wade could be overturned. While 45% disapproved of the nation’s highest court in March, that number checked in at 55% last month (Marquette University Law School).

Meanwhile, a poll conducted in January found that 34% of Americans feel violence against the government is “sometimes justified” (Washington Post/University of Maryland).

The next day, it radioed back its first scientific data on interstellar space. Above is an artist's impression of Pioneer 10 looking back on the inner Solar while on its way to interstellar space.
