Back in 2005 Cornyn mused how violence against "activist judges" was understandable ("great distress


Sen. John Cornyn said yesterday that recent examples of courthouse violence may be linked to public anger over judges who make politically charged decisions without being held accountable.

In a Senate floor speech in which he sharply criticized a recent Supreme Court ruling on the death penalty, Cornyn (R-Tex.) -- a former Texas Supreme Court justice and member of the Judiciary Committee -- said Americans are growing increasingly frustrated by what he describes as activist jurists.

"It causes a lot of people, including me, great distress to see judges use the authority that they have been given to make raw political or ideological decisions," he said. Sometimes, he said, "the Supreme Court has taken on this role as a policymaker rather than an enforcer of political decisions made by elected representatives of the people."

Cornyn continued: "I don't know if there is a cause-and-effect connection, but we have seen some recent episodes of courthouse violence in this country. . . . And I wonder whether there may be some connection between the perception in some quarters, on some occasions, where judges are making political decisions yet are unaccountable to the public, that it builds up and builds up and builds up to the point where some people engage in, engage in violence. Certainly without any justification, but a concern that I have."

Ottawa Blockade and "Freedom Convoy" v. Protest on Alito's sidewalk


We need to call Alito and the others Radical Clerics

Did Merrick Garland give a speech saying he would protect our repro rights??

US Supreme Court public information line 202 479 3211

I asked why the... ahem....."leak".... was being investigated by the Marshals, but not psychotic, caught-red-handed, insurrectionist Ginni Thomas.

What has Garland done on voting rights or repro rights after promising to protect both

When Jen Psaki started I though the media would love her. Instead they

have treated her like shit.

Has Sinema announced her position yet on Judge KBJ? What's she waiting for?

Every day she goes without an announcement is an insult to the Judge.

Makes me think she is savoring a last-minute no vote.

Garland seems determined to be obstinate-the more people tell him to act, the less he will

Like he's proving a point.

And I don't care for his pissy mansplaining lectures to us about "following the facts."

He's on a wrong-headed crusade thinking that giving trump impunity to commit all crimes proves the Justice Department is neutral.

CreativeMarket (similar to Etsy) has created links to support their Ukrainian creatives

FYI - one more way to help Ukrainians directly


Over the last decade, we’ve had the honor to welcome talented Ukrainian creatives to this community: more than 94,000 Dribbble designers and 1,200 Creative Market shops are based in Ukraine. On February 24, their lives and dreams were suddenly shattered by conflict. According to the UNHCR, the number of civilians fleeing Ukraine has now reached 2 million, making it the fastest-growing refugee crisis in Europe since World War II.

At Dribbble, we believe creativity thrives when human beings are free to design their lives without fear of violence. That’s why we’re partnering with the International Rescue Committee to provide relief to Ukrainians seeking refuge. Their teams are on the ground in Poland providing critical aid to families fleeing the conflict and trying to gain control over their future. Together, Creative Market and Dribbble will donate $50,000 USD to this cause.

Over the coming days, we will also showcase Ukrainian creators across our platforms. We encourage you to support their extraordinary design work on Dribbble and ready-to-use assets on Creative Market’s new Finds Page


We’re here to empower creatives to make a living doing what they love, in peace.
