(Jun. 15, 2022) — The recent plan to assassinate sitting U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh – seemingly a “lone wolf” operation, at least for the moment – should be  a “red flag” that we are now farther into the Second Civil War than predicted here.  And with the complicity of the mainstream media, much farther. 

And the fact that the apparatchik arm of the Democrat Party – in prior times known as the independent “mainstream media” – chose to virtually ignore altogether the attempt makes it in effect a “soft” accessory to the crime. 

The failure to condemn a criminal act is to condone it and, when the silence from the Fourth Estate persists thereafter, it becomes tacit, albeit silent approval.  Nazi Third Reich Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels would be proud.  Really proud.

And that, Virginia, is where we are.  If a deranged person made the same threat to, say, liberal Justices Sotomayor or Kagan, the “journalists” at the Gray Trollop, MSNBC, CBS and the WaPo – where “democracy dies in darkness” – would be howling at the top of their collective lungs for the person’s head on a spike.  Their silence screams volumes about their malevolent priorities.

And as your humble servant has noted in the past, if hypocrisy did not already exist, a liberal – including a leftist media outlet – would invent it at breakfast merely to survive until lunch. Hypocrisy is the mother’s milk of the vast majority of today’s “journalists.”

And while howling over threats to Sotomayor or Kagan, they would also be drawing whatever fantasy connect-the-dots maze between the assailant and President Trump as their fevered imaginations could concoct.  The mask has been torn away: with few exceptions, the MSM is indifferent to the reality that attacks on conservative justices on the Supreme Court can be ignored and even excused, but the same assaults on liberal justices are forbidden, despite the fact that both are federal crimes.  Cockroaches with keyboards.  

And, speaking of crimes, it is a felony for “protestors” to appear at the private homes of Supreme Court Justices and hide behind the First Amendment to intimidate with the intent to influence decisions made or to be made. 18 U.S.C. § 1503 makes it a crime to threaten by communication (e.g., bullhorns) or endeavor to influence or intimidate any “officer in… any court of the United States… in the discharge of his duties….” 

Anyone who watches the video clips of the “protestors” prancing around in front of Justice Kavanaugh’s home and concludes that their intent is anything other than an effort to influence or intimidate Justice Kavanaugh regarding the upcoming Dodds opinion potentially overruling Roe v. Wade is either willfully ignorant or indulging in a controlled substance.  Those are the only two options.

So what does U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland do?  Taking a cue from the MSM: nothing.  This intellectual insect rivals both Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch for being the worst chief legal officer within the Department of Justice (sic) since its founding.  But hey, what did you expect? Brandon the Goof (“BTG”) appointed him.  All of which simply underscores the reality that we are continuing down the road to a civil war. 

When the chief legal officer of the United States refuses to prosecute people who are openly violating 18 U.S.C. § 1503; when the Fourth Estate turns multiple blind eyes to a direct threat to kill a sitting U.S. Supreme Court Justice; and when the now-serving Majority Leader of the Senate gets away with threatening both Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch by warning them that they “will not know what hit you” if they even think of voting to overturn Roe, it is a safe bet that darker days lie ahead.

Much darker.

  1. The stronger case may be under 18 U.S. Code § 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.”

    There is debate over whether or not this statute clashes with 1st Amendment rights.

    1. The most inclusive and harshest punishment case is under 18 U.S.C. § 1503

      “a) Whoever corruptly, or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, endeavors to influence, intimidate, or impede any grand or petit juror, or officer in or of any court of the United States, or officer who may be serving at any examination or other proceeding before any United States magistrate judge or other committing magistrate, in the discharge of his duty, or injures any such grand or petit juror in his person or property on account of any verdict or indictment assented to by him, or on account of his being or having been such juror, or injures any such officer, magistrate judge, or other committing magistrate in his person or property on account of the performance of his official duties, or corruptly or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, influences, obstructs, or impedes, or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice, shall be punished as provided in subsection (b). If the offense under this section occurs in connection with a trial of a criminal case, and the act in violation of this section involves the threat of physical force or physical force, the maximum term of imprisonment which may be imposed for the offense shall be the higher of that otherwise provided by law or the maximum term that could have been imposed for any offense charged in such case.
      (b) The punishment for an offense under this section is—
      (1) in the case of a killing, the punishment provided in sections
      1111 and 1112;
      (2) in the case of an attempted killing, or a case in which the
      offense was committed against a petit juror and in which a
      class A or B felony was charged, imprisonment for not more
      than 20 years, a fine under this title, or both; and
      (3) in any other case, imprisonment for not more than 10 years, a
      fine under this title, or both.”

  2. The Kavanaugh Assassination Attempt seems better characterized as a “threat” than an actual “attempt.” Maybe that’s “splitting hairs?” Maybe I don’t know enough about the details of the incident. Maybe even I don’t know what I’m talking about? Regardless, if things continue along the same sick path that they have been going lately, then one thing that I do know for certain is that our once great country and once tolerant, mostly law-abiding, and peace-seeking people will soon be past history. BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, the CIA, the FBI, the US Supreme court, purveyors of woke and LGBTQ+ nonsense, RINO senators and representatives (especially the spineless ones), practically the entire wanna-be communist Democrat Party, New World Order enthusiasts, etc, etc, are THE ONES TO FOCUS ON FOR DESTROYING OUR COUNTRY. Some, myself included, call this TREASON, and on that subject I am not “splitting hairs!”
