President Joe Biden attacked six Supreme Court justices for voting to repeal Roe ,, telling the nation that it was not a “constitutional judgement” but “an exercise of raw political power .”
He made this move the day after Justice Brett Kavanaugh had been forced to exit a Washington, D.C. restaurant by anti-abortion activists through the backdoor. This was just weeks after another radical gunman attempted to kill Kavanaugh in his home.
Although the White House strongly condemned the attempted assassination, Biden was reluctant to convey the message. The controversy surrounding the Dobbs Women’s Health Organization case has seen the Biden administration encourage peaceful protests to be held outside of the residences of conservative Supreme Court justices, even though such demonstrations violate federal law. Karine Jeanne-Pierre, press secretary, said that Friday’s protests were fine outside restaurants.
Biden made Friday’s speech as he signed an executive to end a concocted parade of terribles Democrats and establishment media outlets had created since Dobbs –. This included that no women could travel to the blue states for abortions, that hospitals wouldn’t be permitted to treat ectopic pregnancy and that both husbands and wives could be detained for invito s.
The Biden administration also exaggerated fears about the Supreme Court’s upcoming enforcement of contraception for married couples. It has said that it will ban same-sex marriage and that interracial marriages would be outlawed.
Biden claimed Friday that Justice Clarence Thomas called on the Supreme Court for a reconsideration of the right to contraception. As a matter of fact, he had not done so. He stated that contraceptive rights shouldn’t be based on “substantive Due Process” as an explanation.
Thomas is against substantive due process. He fears that a Supreme Court that has the power to envision things in the Constitution might use it for both good and evil.
The Democrats and Biden are supporting the same tactics in their attempts to press the Dobbs majority and to penalize them. They would not allow armed protestors to gather at the residences of liberal justices just before a Second Amendment ruling. They would smear and denigrate the Court if it had voted 5-4 in their favor.
Worse, Biden signals to his most extreme elements that their tactics can be justified. Although the White House is rarely Biden’s advocate for violence and intimidation it still allows his allies to move right up to this line.
A cynic may point out that violence against Supreme Court justices is a win for Biden. If the violence involves guns, Biden can condemn “gun violence.” And, should an assassination attempt be made, Biden will appoint someone liberal to replace him.
Biden claimed once that Donald Trump was an affront to the rule and law. Mark Levin, a conservative commentator noted that no president has undermined the legitimacy the Supreme Court in the same way as Biden on Friday.
It is one thing to call Supreme Court Justices political activists, but it is another to say so by the President of America with justices in active danger.
As the events in Japan have shown, danger is real.
