    Supreme Court Justice-designate Ketanji Brown Jackson, who was confirmed by the Senate last month, said Monday that she was “shocked” by the leak of a draft decision that showed the high court is on the verge of overturning Roe v. Wade — but declined to speak out against an outbreak of demonstrations at the homes of her future colleagues. “Everybody who is familiar with the court and the way in which it works was shocked by that,” Jackson told the Washington Post of the unprecedented disclosure of the draft opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito. “Such a departure from normal...

    Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, on Tuesday called the protests outside of Supreme Court justices’ homes “reprehensible” in an interview. “I think it’s reprehensible.

    Former Attorney General Bill Barr said Monday on FNC’s “Jesse Watters Primetime” that the protests outside the homes of Supreme Court justices after a draft opinion leaked that would overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling were a violation of both federal and state law. Waters said, “You see these protesters at the homes of these justices, what goes through your mind?” Barr said, “Well, that’s not a valid form of protest because it’s a violation of the law. There is time and place for protests, and the federal statute makes it clear if you go to the house of...

    It’s no shock these days that when liberals and leftists don’t get their way, they ignore facts, shrug off civilized debate, and revel like spoiled children in hyperbole, intimidation, threats of violence, and actual violence. Given how dangerous this stuff is, they’ve ignored history, too. “Men have been barbarians much longer than they have been civilized,” wrote journalist Walter Lippman in The Public Philosophy (1955). “They are only precariously civilized, and with us there is the propensity, persistence as the force of gravity, to revert under stress and strain, under neglect or temptation, to our first natures.” Democrats have butchered...

    Abstract Many social movements face fierce resistance in the form of a countermovement. Therefore, when deciding to become politically active, a movement supporter has to consider both her own movement’s activity and that of the opponent. This paper studies the decision of a movement supporter to attend a protest when faced with a counterprotest. We implement two field experiments among supporters of a right- and left-leaning movement ahead of two protest–counterprotest interactions in Germany. Supporters were exposed to low or high official estimates about their own and the opposing group’s turnout. ...Academically speaking, the right-leaning movement we study can more...

    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.

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to condemn pro-abortion protests outside of Supreme Court justices’ private homes on Thursday even though they could potentially be in violation of Title 18, Section 1507 of the United States Code. During an exchange with Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy on Thursday, Psaki refused to condemn the doxing of justices’ home addresses, saying the potential for Roe v. Wade being overturned has sparked a considerable passion in people.

    In 2014, the number of black American murder victims was 6,095. Then, after the August 2014 killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, anti-police protests and riots began, federal officials and mass media sympathetic to rioters brought heightened scrutiny to police practices, BLM began its career, "broken windows" policing was curtailed, and police morale plummeted. The number of murders thereupon began to surge, never to return to 2014 levels. The "excess" murder victims from 2015 through 2020 who were black -- that is, the additional black victims each year beyond the 2014 baseline -- add up to 11,005. Compare that...

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Protesters marched through downtown Grand Rapids chanting and at times blocking traffic Friday evening, demanding accountability for the fatal police shooting of Patrick Lyoya. Unless we all come together as people who love other people and human beings, what happened to Patrick in Grand Rapids is going to happen to somebody in another city," a protester named Dennis Boatwright told Fox News. "The common people need to come out and hold our society accountable for holding racist views," Boatwright continued.

    (Yegor Zhukov, Age 21) The change of power in Russia will be very similar to my arrest. On the night of Aug. 2, when the longest day of my life finally ended and I laid down on a hard bunk bed in an isolation cell of a detention center, the similarity of these two events suddenly became clear to me. And while my cellmates slept — one young and one middle-aged man who were facing prison terms for armed robbery — my tired and screaming brain continued to draw parallels…. However repressive the ruling regime is, however widespread lawlessness becomes,...

Russian state media warned citizens that those who participate in unsanctioned protests will be “arrested and brought to responsibility.”About 1,000 people at this anti war protest right now.

    OTTAWA—The federal government says the RCMP is working with financial institutions to “unfreeze” bank accounts locked by emergency orders that targeted people who organized, participated in, or donated to the so-called Freedom Convoy blockades. Isabelle Jacques, assistant deputy minister of finance, told a Commons standing committee Tuesday that the RCMP began “sharing information” — related to the end of “unlawful” blockades — with banks and financial institutions as of Monday that should lead to affected accounts being “unfrozen.”
