House Democrats Block Supreme Court Protection Bill

Despite passing unanimously in the Senate, House Democrats will not approve the Supreme Court Police Parity Act.

The bill would provide Supreme Court justices and members of their families the same level of security protections provided to other high ranking officials in the government.

But Democrats, including leadership, in the House say the bill doesn’t go far enough and refuse to pass it in its current form, delaying necessary protection for the justices as demonstrations ramp up over the weekend.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said the security should be extended to law clerks and staff who “have increasingly faced threats to their physical safety.”

“While the Senate passed a bill this week that would extend protection to Supreme Court justices’ family members, we believe that it is critical to safeguard the families of those who choose to serve their country and their communities as judicial clerks and staff as well.”

Hoyer instead wants to pass the House’s Supreme Court Families Security Act of 2022, introduced by Representative Greg Stanton (D-AZ), which would “authorize security for the immediate families of the justices as well as court employees, including clerks”.

Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) accused Democrats of making “unnecessary” additions to the bill as a stall tactic.

“[Clerks and other staff] are not highly visible or recognizable like the justices are, so they’re unlikely to need that kind of protection. Plus, our staff here even in Congress is not provided that sort of protection.”

I would be very interested in knowing how long, both the Republicans and Democrats are willing and strong enough to admit exactly WHAT IS BEHIND ALL THE CRAP THAT IS BEING SPREAD BY BIDEN AND HIS HANDLERS….??
It is obvious to me that the deliberate destruction of this Country and it’s People is the goal, and it is well along in destroying the Country we ALL ( W/some exceptions?) know
and love….PLEASE get some SPINE and admit your intent.

Another reason for us to start performing abortions – on THEM before Roe is overturned!

Due process 1st, then appropriate executions for treason insurrection &/or sedition. We are a nation of Laws, not a mobocracy; if we don’t follow the laws, we’re as bad as those who are not doing so now.

In this matter our sole consolation is that the DemonCrats and even some RINO mothers will by definition out-abort the Conservatives. Attrition is slow, but abortion may serve our cause…or NOT. We should STILL not favor abortion.

The DEMs must protect the clerk who did the leak. Remember, no DEM is left behind. It’s just part of the deal when one joins the Party to destroy the country.

So, add that later, IF they need it. Meanwhile the Justices DO, because of the rabid leftis hate mobs, who might not get their way!

It’s just an excuse to delay protection to the Justices and families while their surrogates illegally try to pressure them. They don’t care about the clerks, etc.; if they were included the Democrats would find another reason to object.
