Time to get tough and invoke the Patriot Act – Senator Grassley and Trump Administration
Rabid attacks in Congress by Senators or protestors and most definitely through mail, email, protests, social media companies manipulations of information, and other means outside the Senate hearings by Leftists against the nomination of Kavanaugh…
Should be considered Acts of Domestic Terrorism under the Patriot Act and should be processed accordingly NOW.
These are not just misguided actions of a crazed person or two — they ARE COORDINATED efforts by the Leftists to overtake control of the government through manipulation, intimidation, and violent actions.
The Congressional Research Service report, American Jihadist Terrorism: Combatting a Complex Threat, describes homegrown terrorism as a “terrorist activity or plots perpetuated within the United States or abroad by American citizens, permanent legal residents, or visitors radicalized largely within the United States.
Under the 2001 USA Patriot Act, domestic terrorism is defined as “activities that (A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the U.S. or of any state; (B) appear to be intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the U.S.”
Senator Grassley sent a letter to the accuser’s attorney which drew a deadline of Monday to appear. He gave today as the deadline to answer. They met that but now demand that they appear on Thursday not Monday — the day after a vote is scheduled to be taken on Judge Kavanaugh. They have been working on this case since at least August — if Debra Katz isn’t ready, then she isn’t worth the price she charges.
Why continue to change dates – intimidation and manipulation. There is NO other reason that could be possible.
Sorry once a line is drawn — there should be no reason to go past that line. Anything else is holding the government and the citizens of our country hostage. That is exactly the scope of the Patriot Act definition of terrorism. Backing down provides the perpetrators proof that they CAN get away with acts of terrorism and THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE.
U.S. Marshals Probe Threats Against Kavanaugh Family: ‘F*** YOU AND YOUR RAPIST HUSBAND’
September 20, 2018
The U.S. Marshals Service is reportedly investigating violent threats sent to the wife of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after a 36-year-old sexual misconduct allegation was leveled against the judge.
Citing an unnamed, high-ranking Trump official, the Wall Street Journal and CNN report at least four vulgar messages were sent to Ashely Kavanaugh’s work email address. In one instance, Mrs. Kavanaugh was sent an email which reads, “May you, your husband and your kids burn in hell.” Another message states “Hi, Ashley,” you should tell her husband to “put a bullet in his … skull.”
“My condolences to you for being married to a rapist. Although you probably deserve it,” another email read.
On Wednesday, Mrs. Kavanaugh is said to have received a note with the following subject line: “F*** YOU AND YOUR RAPIST HUSBAND.”
The U.S. Marshals Service has yet to issue a statement regarding the matter.
One person close to the confirmation process said that while Mrs. Kavanaugh is upset by the attacks on her husband, she doesn’t want him to withdraw. Judge Kavanaugh himself hasn’t considered withdrawing, according a person familiar with his thinking.
In addition to Mrs. Kavanaugh, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) has received multiple threats in a bid to intimidate her into voting against the Trump Supreme Court pick.
My office has received some pretty ugly voice mail threats, terrible things said to my staff, so this has been a very ugly process and I think that’s very unfortunate,” Collins told radio station WVOM on Wednesday. Last week, Collins’s chief of staff, Steve Abbot, told a Maine television station, “We’ve had some very abusive callers” regarding Kavanaugh’s nomination. “We’ve had some very vulgar calls and sort of harassing the staff.”
Christine Blasey Ford, the California psychology professor accusing Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a house party in 1984, has also been the subject of threats, according to her lawyer Debra Katz. “As you are aware, she has been receiving death threats, which have been reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and she and her family have been forced out of their home, Katz wrote in an email sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
In a separate email, Ford’s second lawyer, Lisa Banks, claimed to lawmakers that the professor has faced “vicious harassment” after coming forward with her story. “As a result of these kind of threats, her family was forced to relocate out of their home. Her email has been hacked, and she has been impersonated online,” the attorney wrote.
First – Christine Ford braced herself back in August for the firestorm she would incur once on this path. Second, whomever leaked the information to the press should be investigated and charged for invasion of privacy. Third, Sen. Feinstein and whomever else in the Senate should be held to the Ethics and Procedures Standards which have been firmly established and receive consequences for their actions.
Second – This is exactly why the Patriot Act was worded in such a way. Both chambers of Congress APPROVED this act and should now be calling it into play against members in their houses if necessary and definitely citizens rioting/protesting in the streets.
The deliberate attacks on congressional members through any means as a method of intimidation and manipulation of votes SHOULD HAVE BEEN DEALT WITH DURING THE 2016 ELECTION CYCLE. Now they have simply become more emboldened and brazen in their belief that there are no consequences for such behavior.
They are wrong. The Patriot Act has not been rescinded and is in full force so they should take the consequences as set forth in that law.
This is just plain evil that a family could be terrorized for stepping up to be confirmed for a new government position — one of the most important and highest authority judicial positions bar none.
Keep pushing — there are consequences for every action.
It isn’t just us that is watching and waiting — the entire world is either going to take heart or decry your actions. This is a GLOBAL issue. You know it is so.
