House Democrats Reject Bill to Bolster Security for Supreme Court After Failed Plot Against Kavanaugh
By now, you’ve likely heard about the attempted murder plot on Supreme Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s life this week.
An armed man was arrested who admitted that he wanted to kill the conservative Supreme Court Justice. The reason for this, as you would have expected, is the apparent leaked draft of the opinion that is supposed to overturn Roe v. Wade and send the authority back to the states to decide for themselves.
Prior to this, people had found the addresses of the other conservative Justices as well and leaked them so people could go and protest outside of their homes. As a result, the Senate unanimously passed a bill to increase the security for the Supreme Court Justices amid the protesting going on.
Well, as the bill got to the House, it was blocked…by Democrats. A bill that was passed by every single Democrat in the Senate, was BLOCKED by House Democrats.
BREAKING: House Democrats just BLOCKED a bill to provide more security for Supreme Court justices and their families.
This passed unanimously in the Senate, yet Speaker Pelosi refuses to bring it up for a vote—despite today's foiled plot to kill Justice Kavanaugh. Shameful. pic.twitter.com/W94z8xh90u

“Just moments ago, The Washington Post published an extremely disturbing report,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell began. “According to the report, a man in his mid-twenties was stopped near the house of a Supreme Court Justice carrying a weapon and burglary tools. He reportedly told police he intended to murder the Justice. Reportedly, he indicated he was angry at the decision he thinks the Court may reach in an upcoming case in light of the unconscionable leak from a few weeks back.”
“This is where we are,” McConnell said. “This is where we are, Mr. President. If these reports are correct: an assassination attempt against a sitting Justice or something close to it.”
“This is exactly, exactly, the kind of event that many feared; that the terrible breach of the Court’s rules and norms could fuel,” he pointed out. “This is exactly the kind of event that many worried the unhinged, reckless, apocalyptic rhetoric from prominent figures toward the Court going back many months and especially in recent weeks could make more likely.”
This morning’s disturbing reports are exactly why the Senate unanimously passed a Supreme Court security bill weeks ago. But House Democrats have inexplicably blocked it. House Democrats need to stop their blockade and pass this uncontroversial bill today. pic.twitter.com/wd8UB5RDvm

They don’t want to block it because they want them dead. They know that the liberal Justices are safe, their lives aren’t in any real danger. They’ll just appoint new liberal Justices to fill their places if something happens to them. That’s just how disgusting Democrats truly are.
