AG Garland – Enforce Law or Resign

U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer meets with Judge Merrick Garland.

Federal law is clear – protests at or near homes of Supreme Court Justices are illegal, punishable by a year in prison. Why? To protect justices and prevent intimidation. Biden’s pro-abortion Attorney General Merrick Garland refuses to enforce the law – even after a protestor tried to kill a justice. The time has come to fish or cut bait – He must either enforce the law or resign.

18 USC 1507 is not ambiguous. It reads: “Whoever, with the intent of … influencing any judge … in the discharge of his duty, pickets … in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge … or near any such building or residence, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.”

Supporting cases are clear. In Grace, et al, v. Burger (1981), the DC Circuit held: “We emphasize that expressive conduct designed to disrupt the Supreme Court or to in any way influence the administration of justice is not protected by our opinion today,” adding “Such conduct is properly prohibited by 18 U.S.C. § 1507.”

Can the law be any clearer? We do not want judges and justices intimidated, threatened, placed in fear for their lives or the lives of their children – full stop. We do not tolerate that behavior in a nation premised on rulings by an independent judiciary. 

AG Garland is not ignorant, he is willful – and willfully choosing not to enforce this critical federal law.  He sat on the DC circuit in the decade after that ruling. He knows the law.

Not only have we seen extreme protests at the homes of five Supreme Court Justices – whose names are on an illegally leaked draft opinion reversing Roe v. Wade, but these justices have been personally threatened, as have their children. This is a clear attempt at intimidation.

Justice Kavanaugh escaped death by swift action of two US Marshalls. This fact alone changes the lives of justices, their families, and the notion of respect for a judiciary independent of politics – forever.

If he had been killed, or if any justice is harmed, we face a national crisis of untold proportions – the unprecedented killing of a sitting justice, presumably a conservative, who would then be replaced by a Democrat president and congress, would thoroughly undermine civic respect, civil order, and would likely lead to mass violence across the country. History teaches, we must learn.

That Biden did nothing – and continues to do nothing – to discourage such violence, just as he did nothing during violent 2020 race riots, is a disgrace. That a Democrat Majority Leader, Chuck Schumer, threatened justices reversing Roe “would pay” is abhorrent, utterly irresponsible That Speaker Pelosi has gone so far as to encourage violence, pushing “righteous anger,” is an abomination.

But the abdication of responsibility that warrants reversal, impeachment, or resignation is by AG Garland. This AG was ten when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, lived through killings of former AG and candidate Robert Kennedy, civil rights leader Martin Luther King.

If any generation – any person – should understand the horrifying and destabilizing effects of political violence against any leader, president, candidate, former AG, civil rights leader – or Supreme Court justice – with nerves raw, Democrats in charge – it is AG Garland.

To be blunt, there is no excuse – absolutely none – for not enforcing laws written to protect the Supreme Court, sitting Justices, their families, and Republic itself. Not to do so is more than bad judgment, more than e triumph of dirty politics over our independent judiciary, more than wrongheaded, narrow-minded, or simply irresponsible.

Not to pull all stops, get the president, vice president, all congressional leaders, cabinet members, and national voices to plead for no violence – is to invite it. Not to prosecute those in clear violation of federal law intended to protect our judiciary, is to be complicit in potential violence.

The time is now to step up, to arrest and prosecute ALL those violating federal law, seeking to intimidate, threaten, and otherwise impair the independence of our federal judiciary. Ironically, AG Garland is a former judge himself – who knows that this is essential to protect the nation.

Putting a fine point on this abdication of responsibility and defiance of his sworn duty, the present moment must trigger one of three actions – either a swift reversal by AG Garland resulting in prosecutions that deter future violence, his resignation, or impeachment.

Given that AG Garland seems unwilling to enforce federal law, thus puts justices in fear and at risk; given that Democrats in House and Senate are not going to impeach him but cheer his abdication of constitutional responsibility – reality is this. If AG Garland will not enforce laws to prevent and deter violence, protect the High Court and justices, he should resign.

The willful enforcement of the desires of democrats in office with no regard to what is law only proves their desire to be dictators and they should be removed from office under charges of treason.

WHY was Trump accused of “Incitement” for something he NEVER SAID on January 6th, but these high-ranking Democrats have been OPENLY “Inciting” Violence for almost SIX YEARS, and have faced ZERO consequences?! Garland should be removed for Dereliction of Duty. Waters, Pelosi, and Schumer should be facing Articles of Impeachment for calling for violence against Conservatives AND SCOTUS Justices?! SERIOUSLY?!?!

Exactly!
The Democrats totally ignore any and all of the violence resulting from their twisted policies!
Then they all scream; “we must get the guns”! “We must repeal the 2nd amendment”!
And round and round we go!

Chuck Schumer is guilty of sedition for inciting protests and violence against Justice Kavanaugh but his comment did not raise and eyebrow from the Justice Department, the Democrats or from the media. Clearly we have lost any semblance of a fair and balanced justice system.

The AG is more concerned about parents protecting their children in school board meetings than the lives of Supreme Court Justices .!! Perhaps looking for revenge for not being selected to the court !

Yes, Garland should resign. But that requires he be an ethical and moral man, qualities most current democrats lack or outright abhor.

The continued lack of application of the law will be the cause for far too many troubles to count for this nation. AG’s are supposed to be the champion of the law and stand firm, but they are now no more than political hands puppeted by those who occupy the seats of power. This applies on every level…federal, state, and even locally when judges and magistrates foot around and let law breakers walk. Anarchy is the goal……and it seems they are succeeding.

Could it be a streak of jealousy? After all, AG Garland was nominated for the Supreme Court but was soundly denied the seat. Perhaps he just can’t stand to see the justices going about their business without him as an associate…so a threat against the office that he was denied may be, in his view, justice. How sad that those sworn to follow, uphold and protect the United States Constitution can so casually and cavalierly toss their oath aside for petty partisan politics…and he is a stunning example of that. Once you give up your integrity you can never quite recover it.

Now that the congress passed the judicial protection bill I say someone like local law enforcement or the FBI should make an arrest and see what the AG does.

This sounds the same as the AG refusing to prosecute border regulations.He needs to go now and a lot of the AG’s across the country need to go with him!!!

Totally agree!
They have weaponised our government branches and bureaus against their political enemies (which are American Citizens). The entire cabal that continues with this cancerous corruption has played a very dangerous game.
It’s not just shameful hypocrisy, hideous commie tactics, but totally illegal on its face. Accountability, Equality, FAIR and Balanced, that’s gone now.

What does AMAC believe the American Citizens should do with this? If you say vote their butts out of office – we’ve been doing that since 2010 but they figured out how to cheat, steal, lie, conceal and totally cover up their crimes in elections and grafts. Instead, they blame their political enemies of the criminal activities they’re doing, done and will do.

So, there’s a clock that is counting down. It’s their game and they are good at it. Can we beat them? Poll Challengers, Election Inspectors, Workers, and Vote. If everyone is involved and not just for 1 election, maybe we can make a difference.
I’m afraid that 4 decades of yelling about the stupid debts the UNIPARTY in DC has put on our future generations has UNIPOTTIED THEIR PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

Since this criminal, corrupt, treasonous, illegitimate administration assumed control, I have been asking the same question: Where do you go, to whom do you turn, when those whose job and responsibility it is to enforce our laws (the AG and the DOJ) not only are not interested in doing their job, but are themselves involved in breaking laws? Where do you go?

I agree with the article whole hardheartedly, but with this justice department we have now, I’d be surprised if the two marshals that thwarted the attempted murder of Justice Kavanaugh and fulfilled their oath of office don’t get reprimanded and reassigned to some remote posting like Death Valley or Nome Alaska.
It is unheard of in this administration to demand of their staff and cabinet to uphold their oath of office as they swore when taking office.

Exactly right. Some of us were not far away when a hit man killed Judge John Wood in San Antonio. There is no rational defense for the refusal to enforce this very clear law. And Obama wanted to put the man on the Supreme Court?!

He never should have been appointed to AG in the first place. He is just as corrupt as Holder was as we now all see. He is part of the progressive movement which makes him unable to apply justice and fairness equally to all citizens .For the sake of equal justice under the law, which he refuses to apply, he must resign or be fired. He took an oath and falsely agreed to it. Shame on him.

Garland should definitely resign BUT Slow Joe is the “chief executive;” meaning HE swore to enforce the law (as the Constitution requires). That’s a lot worse than making a phone call to someone!

Peaceful as a qualifier? Democrats keep saying the protests have been peaceful, the law does not use that qualifier, I would interpret that any protest would be unlawful.

They don’t enforce the law because they do not care what you and I think, what they care about is the power and money that gets them what they want. They’re not interested in the legal part just in the part that fits their particular agenda and what makes them the biggest payday!!!
