AG Merrick Garland goes to Ukraine but does not enforce Title 18 U.S. Code section 1507 for crimes against Supreme Court judges

At about 1:05 a.m. on 8 June 2022, Nicholas John Roske got out of a taxicab in front of the home of Supreme Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Two deputy U.S. Marshals were standing by their car nearby. Fortunately while there Roske called the Montgomery County, Maryland, Emergency Communications Center and said he was having homicidal and suicidal thoughts. The local police went to the scene and arrested him, and in his possession were a gun, ammunition, a knife, and other items. He later admitted that he had gone there to try to kill Kavanaugh [4].

On 19 July 2020, a man dressed as a Federal Express delivery driver walked up to the door of the home of federal District Judge Esther Salas in New Jersey. Her son answered the door and the suspect shot and killed him, and shot and wounded her husband. Roy Den Hollander, an attorney who had appeared before Judge Salas in 2015, was thought to be the attacker and was found dead as a probable suicide in Sullivan County, New York [5].

Former president Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court in 2016 after the death of Judge Antonin Scalia. We can thank our lucky stars that Senator Charles Grassley — at that time the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee — refused to hold a hearing on Garland’s nomination. After Donald Trump won the presidential election that year, he nominated Neil Gorsuch to the court in 2017, and Gorsuch was confirmed by the Senate.

After Garland was nominated by Joe Biden to be Attorney General in 2021 (with a probable helping hand from Barack Obama and others), the Senate Republicans foolishly agreed to have an evaluation period of only one week instead of 28 days, that would follow the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on 22 and 23 February 2021. The committee vote on the nomination was then done on 1 March 2021. This prevented the gathering and consideration of reasons why Garland should not be confirmed.

It is important to understand the significant authority an Attorney General has. Even though federal agencies and departments have their own lawyers, they do what the attorneys in the Justice Department have decided a legal policy will be, which ultimately means the Attorney General himself or herself.

As one disturbing example, the policies allowing the massive movement of huge numbers of illegal immigrants across the U.S. southern border and their dispersal by the government around this country are the policies of Merrick Garland.

His failure to move against what is plainly illegal behavior at the homes of Supreme Court judges is not the result of ignorance.

    Maybe Garland, lefty hack that he is, will like looking over the landscape toward Mother Russia and recall the old USSR. With some fondness for what might have been. Maybe he will stay over there for good.

    We have a generation of people in government who are well aware they are here due to their ancestors being persecuted. Now they are the ones doing the persecution to people who don’t deserve it. As the saying goes with communism; you learn to hate what you once loved and love what you once hated. This is the case with Garland.

    • Deap says:

      We love the fact Garland never made it to the Obama SCOTUS; but have come to hate Biden (not a woman)SCOTUS one who finally did.

  3. Fred says:

    He went to Ukraine because the left believes those borders must be defended, unlike ours.

    • Babeltuap says:

      Fred,

      They hate all forms of nationalism. They back Ukraine because it’s not nationalism. It’s globalism. A push to destroy all nationalism. Nothing more. No religion, culture. Just their own belief system and own personal brand of failure which they can simply blame on nationalism every single time. After they defeat nationalism the knives will be turned in on the people. Already happening. Destroy all cultures, belief systems…ALL OF IT.

    Do we know for sure Garland is not in Ukraine to still clean-up after Hunter Biden; or to deep six anything left behind by Crowdstrike investigation into the DNC computer breach?
