Catholics Call on Attorney General to Protect Churches from Pro-Abortion Radicals Planned Mother’s Day Protests

Catholics are seeking help from Attorney General Merrick Garland after plans surfaced that leftwing protestors who want abortion on demand to remain the law of the land will show up at churches on Mother’s Day to protest the U.S. Supreme Court’s draft opinion on overturning Roe v. Wade.

The national Catholic advocacy group CatholicVote has asked Garland to enforce the law and protect churches from threats from people who have already vandalized churches and clashed with police at protests.

“The aggressive rage exhibited by pro-abortion advocates over the past week, and the plans of anti-Catholic zealots to disrupt Catholic masses around the country this weekend, is a vile attempt to harass, threaten, and intimidate,” Brian Burch, president of CatholicVote, said in a statement. “It is religious bigotry of the worst kind.”

“Yet these threats to the safety of Catholic pastors and parishioners have been met with a stunning silence from our Catholic President.,” Burch said. “Silence is not an option. President Biden must make clear that the targeting of Catholic churches is indefensible and against the law”.

“Further, Attorney General Merrick Garland must make clear that acting on these plans would constitute a violation of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act and will be punished to the full extent of the law. Furthermore, the Attorney General has an obligation to alert every U.S. Attorney across the country and remind them of the law and their duty to enforce it,” Burch said.

“No religious believer in America should fear for their safety while attending church this Sunday, or any day,” Burch said. “We once again call on all responsible leaders in Washington to condemn and stop these dangerous threats before they result in violence.”

On Thursday, Burch wrote a blog on the intense reaction to Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion.

A group named “Ruth Sent Us” is calling for disruption and violence in Catholic churches, as well as protests outside the private homes of Supreme Court justices and their families. These group also published the addresses of the justices’ homes.

Riot in Los Angeles as Pro-Abortion Activists Confront Police

Riot in Los Angeles as Pro-Abortion Activists Confront Police

Violent demonstrators attacked police, vandalized a sidewalk, and smashed a local business on Tuesday evening during a protest against the Supreme Court’s impending decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 abortion decision.

The gathering was initially peaceful, as several hundred people gathered in front of the federal courthouse in downtown Los Angeles to share their outrage at a leaked majority decision in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case.

Pro-choice activists march in protest after gathering outside the US Courthouse to defend abortion rights in downtown Los Angeles on May 3, 2022. – The Supreme Court is poised to strike down the right to abortion in the US, according to a leaked draft of a majority opinion that would shred nearly 50 years of constitutional protections. The draft, obtained by Politico, was written by Justice Samuel Alito, and has been circulated inside the conservative-dominated court, the news outlet reported. Politico stressed that the document it obtained is a draft and opinions could change. The court is expected to issue a decision by June. The draft opinion calls the landmark 1973 Roe v Wade decision “egregiously wrong from the start.” (Photo by Frederic J. BROWN / AFP) (Photo by FREDERIC J. BROWN/AFP via Getty Images)

The decision, written by Justice Samuel Alito and joined by four other conservative justices, restricted the holding in the case to abortion, though Democrats tried to inflame outrage by claiming all other privacy rights and social issues were affected.

Later, however, the event turned violent, as demonstrators tried to take over an intersection, and some threw rocks and bottles at police.

As the Los Angeles Times reported, some also sprayed graffiti in front of City Hall, and attacked police vehicles:

Around 7:30 p.m., officers escorted a group of about 250 demonstrators marching from the courthouse at Broadway and 1st Street to Pershing Square, said Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore. At some point, a group started to take over an intersection.

Police slowly drove a pair of vehicles into the intersection, moving about 40 protesters out of the way. Some were seen pounding on the hoods of the vehicles; most left the intersection.

One person smashed the window of a law enforcement vehicle near Grand Park, and others tagged a bus stop with the words “Google LASD gangs.”

[“LASD gangs” is a reference to reports of gangs within the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, an ongoing local scandal.]

The Times also noted that a glass door of a local Planet Fitness location was smashed during the clashes with police.

Video of the confrontations circulated online:

Some law enforcement officials were from the Department of Homeland Security, who arrived to assist local police forces.

This was the same law enforcement agency that then-Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) referred to as a “paramilitary” force when officers tried to protect a federal courthouse from Black Lives Matter rioters in Portland in 2020.

On Tuesday, Harris issued a statement declaring it was “time to fight for women and our country with everything we have.”

There were other demonstrations across California, with several hundred protesters gathering in front of federal buildings in San Francisco and Oakland, as well as outside a federal courthouse in Sacramento, the state capital.

Trump-Appointed Judge Announces He Will Block Biden from Ending Title 42 at Border

Trump-Appointed Judge Announces He Will Block Biden from Ending Title 42 at Border

A federal judge in Louisiana, appointed by former President Donald Trump, is expected to block President Joe Biden’s plans to end the Title 42 public health authority at the United States-Mexico border.

Weeks ago, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that on May 23 the Biden administration would end Title 42. The authority was first issued by Trump in 2020 and has allowed federal immigration officials to quickly return illegal aliens to their native countries after having crossed the southern border.

Soon after the announcement, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, and Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt filed a lawsuit arguing that ending Title 42 will place an undue burden on their states and that the administration violated the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) in doing so.

On Monday, Judge Robert R. Summerhays granted a temporary restraining order that is likely to prevent Biden from ending Title 42 while the case makes its way through federal court.

“Today, the court announced its intention to grant a temporary restraining order in Missouri, Louisiana, and Arizona’s lawsuit against the Biden administration over their planned suspension of Title 42,” Schmitt said in a statement.

“This temporary restraining order is expected to keep Title 42 in place until further court proceedings, a critical win for border security and the rule of law,” he continued.

Landry celebrated the decision, writing on Twitter that “Biden’s reckless decision to rescind Title 42 would have flooded our already stressed southern border with illegal immigrants.”

“Fortunately, today a judge has granted our request to halt this enormous threat to our national security,” Landry said. “We will continue to ensure that citizenship means something and that those in this country illegally are not conferred greater rights than our citizens.”

Dan Stein with the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) said he applauded the decision, saying in a statement that the White House “should view Judge Summerhays’” decision  “as a reprieve from an even bigger self-inflicted national health and security crisis,” and use the move to fully reinstate Title 42.

Without Title 42, Biden officials admit that up to half a million border crossers and illegal aliens — the equivalent of the resident population of Atlanta, Georgia — could arrive at the border every month.

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) told Breitbart News that he would expect 30,000 border crossers and illegal aliens every day at the border without Title 42. In Tijuana, Mexico, alone, Breitbart News exclusively reported that up to 6,000 foreign nationals are waiting to rush the border when Title 42 is ended.

The Biden administration’s plan for ending Title 42, which Breitbart News reported and published, details “broadscale release mechanisms” that transform the border into a mere checkpoint for foreign nationals arriving every day.

Under the plan, Biden seeks to cut deportations for border crossers and illegal aliens, instead shifting to mechanisms like parole, Notices to Appear (NTAs), and an Alternatives to Detention (ATD) program — all of which ensure the mass release of foreign nationals into the U.S. interior.

The case is Arizona v. Center for Disease Control and Prevention6:22-cv-885 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana.

SCOTUS to Hear Case Over Joe Biden Ending ‘Remain in Mexico’ Border Policy

SCOTUS to Hear Case Over Joe Biden Ending ‘Remain in Mexico’ Border Policy

The United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) is scheduled to hear a case on Tuesday that will decide whether President Joe Biden illegally terminated the Migration Protection Protocols, known as former President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” program.

In 2019, Trump instated the Remain in Mexico program that helped effectively eliminate the policy of Catch and Release at the U.S.-Mexico border. Rather than apprehending and releasing border crossers into the U.S. interior, the program required officials to return border crossers to Mexico while awaiting their asylum and immigration hearings in U.S. courts.

On June 1, 2021, Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas issued a memorandum terminating Remain in Mexico. A district court then ruled that DHS violated federal immigration law when it terminated Remain in Mexico and that Mayorkas had not adequately detailed his reasoning for terminating the program.

The district court ordered DHS to reinstate the Remain in Mexico program, though Breitbart News sources have said for months that the agency has slow-walked its reimplementation and is hardly making an effort to utilize it.

When Mayorkas, again, tried to terminate Remain in Mexico in October 2021, the court of appeals affirmed the district court’s preliminary injunction and ordered that the program remain implemented.

Now, SCOTUS will hear the case on whether federal immigration law requires the administration to continue implementing Remain in Mexico and whether the court of appeals was correct in determining that the program must remain implemented.

The Advocates for Victims of Illegal Alien Crime (AVIAC), the American First Legal Foundation, and the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) are among the organizations backing Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt’s lawsuit against the Biden administration in the case.

“Congress has established a detailed practice for how DHS processes aliens arriving from Mexico. Only Congress can change that practice,” lawyers representing AVIAC wrote in their amicus brief. “DHS cannot refuse to exercise its discretionary option to have aliens remain in Mexico and it cannot ignore a mandate of Congress to craft a third option that fits its desired immigration policy. That is lawmaking by [the] agency in its rankest form.”

The case is Biden v. Texas21-954 in the Supreme Court of the United States.

LA County Sheriff: Gascon Ignores Anyone Who Isn’t Part of Public Defender’s Office or BLM

LA County Sheriff: Gascon Ignores Anyone Who Isn’t Part of Public Defender’s Office or BLM

During a portion of an interview with the Fox News Channel released on Friday, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said he has only had one conversation with Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón, which he stated is a departure from his regular communication with Gascón’s predecessor in the prosecutor’s office, Jackie Lacey. Villanueva also stated that Gascón only has conversations with people who are with the public defender’s office and Black Lives Matter activists and “Everyone else just doesn’t exist in his world.”

After Villanueva criticized Gascón’s policies, host Tucker Carlson asked Villanueva if he’s vocalized these criticisms to Gascón.

Villanueva responded, “Well, I’ve had one conversation with him, that was this first week in office, where we had an issue of mutual concern, on a — one particular case. But his predecessor, we met every three months. I met her in her office. She met me in my office. We shared concerns, exactly what you’re saying, we did. With this gentleman, unless you come from the public defender’s office, you are a Black Lives Matter activist, those are about the only people he’s speaking to. Everyone else just doesn’t exist in his world.”

BLM Claims $6 Million California Mansion Bought for Cultivating ‘Joy’

BLM Claims $6 Million California Mansion Bought for Cultivating ‘Joy’

Black Lives Matter recently purchased a $6 million California mansion for the purpose of cultivating “joy” among the black community, the organization announced Monday.

“Joy is a radical act,” Black Lives Matter alleged. “As a practice and as an experience, joy is something that can heal and sustain us when times are tough. But joy also provides opportunities to explore the possibilities beyond the limits of our daily lives.”

Black Lives Matter, which is under scrutiny over the misuse of donation funds, said the 6,500-square-foot mansion will be used for fellows who wish to learn how to be joyful during the “challenges of the modern world.”

“Creating opportunities for joyful expression is increasingly necessary but often few and far between,” the organization claimed. “The Black Lives Matter Global Network seeks to change that with a new creative fellowship program.”

It is unknown why Black Lives Matter believes the $6 million California mansion is suited for the fellowship rather than a less convenient location with a glamorous cost. But the organization claims the house will operate as a living space for those seeking joy and and “communal space for collaboration,” which includes a garden space for artists who wish to utilize it for dreaming, meditating, and building joy.

“Black Lives Matter recognizes the power of arts and culture to dismantle white supremacy and bring us closer to achieving full liberation not just here in America, but across the globe also,” Black Lives Matter stated to NewsOne.

In 2021, Breitbart News reported that Patrisse Khan-Cullors, one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement, bought four homes over the past several years.

The lavish spending has encouraged some activists to question how Black Lives Matter is spending their massive pool of donations from the unrest in 2020. Cullors claims she has never taken a salary from the donations but has not stated whether she has received any compensation from the organization by way of gifts, expense reimbursements, or stipends.

“Organizers should get paid for the work that they do. They should get paid a living wage,” she claimed in 2021. “And the fact that the right-wing media is trying to create hysteria around my spending is, frankly, racist and sexist.”

Watch Live: Senate Confirmation Vote for SCOTUS Nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson

The Senate is expected to confirm President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Jackson Brown on Thursday.

The confirmation vote is set to take place at around 1:45 P.M. Eastern.

Jackson will replace Justice Stephen Breyer on the Supreme Court and will fulfill Joe Biden’s promise of putting a black woman on the Supreme Court.

Three Senate Republicans have signaled they will vote to confirm Jackson to the Supreme Court, including Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and Mitt Romney (R-UT).

Last June, Romney voted “no” on Jackson’s nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Collins notably joined with Senate Democrats and voted against President Donald Trump’s nominee, Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation, while Murkowski joined Collins and the Democrats in the cloture motion against Barrett.

All 50 Democrats have signaled they will vote to confirm Jackson.
