Pro-Abortion Group Publicizes Conservative Supreme Court Justices’ Home Addresses ahead of Planned Protests

In response to the Monday night leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade, a leftist group called Ruth Sent Us posted what it claims are the home addresses of the Court’s six conservative justices online in preparation for an organized “walk-by protest” set to take place outside the justices’ homes next week.

Ruth Sent Us plans to dispatch demonstrators to “the homes of the six extremist justices” on Wednesday, May 11, according to the group’s website.

“ANNOUNCING: Walk-by Wednesday, May 11, 2022! At the homes of the six extremist justices, three in Virginia and three in Maryland. If you’d like to join or lead a peaceful protest, let us know,” the website states.

“Our 6-3 extremist Supreme Court routinely issues rulings that hurt women, racial minorities, LGBTQ+ and immigrant rights. We must rise up to force accountability using a diversity of tactics,” the group adds.

The late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose legacy Ruth Sent Us claims to uphold, criticized the legal reasoning underpinning Roe v. Wade throughout her career and predicted it would lead to political instability.

In collaboration with Vigil for Democracy, Ruth Sent Us generated and posted a Google Maps graphic pinning the home addresses of Justices Barrett, Kavanaugh, Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch, and Roberts, where they presumably reside with their families. Vigil for Democracy titled the map, “Extremist Justices,” adding, “Where the six Christian fundamentalist Justices issue their shadow docket rulings.” The map has 3,185 views so far.

The group advertises that compensation is available for artists who would like to contribute signage or posters to the protests against the Supreme Court.

“Are you a muralist or chalk artist? Are you a graphic designer who would like to contribute remotely? Large-scale art will be included in the protests against the Supreme Court. Stipends available. To apply, please email us at,” the site reads.

In Virginia, where three of the six justices live, protesting outside a private home is illegal.

The TikTok account for Ruth Sent Us seems to indicate that some marchers will silently walk by the homes of the justices wearing costumes depicted in Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel, the Handmaid’s Tale, an increasingly common tactic used by abortion proponents who claim that a Roe reversal represents the first step toward the creation of a dystopian, patriarchal theocracy.

“Stipends available for red cloaks if you’re in DC, MD, VA. Week of action May 8-15! ,” a caption on one video says. The caption also tags two other entities, ProChoice with Heart and Rise Up for Abortion Rights, which posted links to their donation pages in their TikTok bios.

The website also links to a different organization, “Strike for Choice,” which has been endorsed by radical leftist groups including Black Lives Matter, Code Pink, Women’s March SF, Kavanaugh Off Our Court, and Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights.

On the fundraising page for Strike for Choice, called the Open Collective, Justin Russell and Snowden Bishop, who seem to be affiliated with the leftist website, are listed as either administrators or core contributors.

Justice Alito Cancels Public Appearance After Supreme Court Roe v. Wade Leaked Opinion

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito has canceled plans to make an appearance at an event on Thursday in the aftermath of the leaked majority draft opinion suggesting that Roe v. Wade would be struck down.

Alito was set to appear at the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ judicial conference alongside a number of other judges from the New Orleans-based federal appeals court and the district courts of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas but canceled for unknown reasons, Reuters reported.

Patricia McCabe, a spokesperson for the Supreme Court, confirmed to Reuters that Alito would not be in attendance on Thursday but did not give a reason as to why.

A spokesperson for the appeals courts’ judicial council, which arranges the conference, told The Epoch Times that it does not make details about the conference public, including its location, “for security reasons.”

Alito’s no-show at the upcoming event comes just days after a 67-page opinion, along with a 31-page appendix, was published on May 2 by Politico regarding the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that guaranteed the right to abortion across the entire United States.

The leaked document—penned by Alito—stated that “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start” and appeared to suggest that the landmark ruling would be overturned by the Supreme Court, which has a conservative majority.

“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” Alito wrote in the document, which is labeled as “the opinion of the Court” and dated Feb. 10.”It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

While a final decision has not yet been made, if it were to be overturned, the ruling would not ban abortions nationwide, but would instead allow each state legislature to decide.

Justice John Roberts confirmed the draft document’s authenticity shortly after it was leaked but stressed that it was not the court’s final decision or “the final position of any member” in the case.

The chief justice also directed the marshal of the Supreme Court to launch an investigation to determine the source of the leak to Politico while appearing to rule out “loyal” permanent employees.

“To the extent this betrayal of the confidences of the Court was intended to undermine the integrity of our operations, it will not succeed,” Roberts said in a statement on May 3.

“We at the Court are blessed to have a workforce—permanent employees and law clerks alike—intensely loyal to the institution and dedicated to the rule of law,” Roberts continued.

“Court employees have an exemplary and important tradition of respecting the confidentiality of the judicial process and upholding the trust of the Court. This was a singular and egregious breach of that trust that is an affront to the Court and the community of public servants who work here.”

Roberts added that the work of the Court will not be affected in any way.

However, the leaked documents have sparked controversy across the United States, prompting protests by pro-abortion activists and supporters, while Democrats, including California Gov. Gavin Newsom, have spoken out against it.

Newsom on May 4 vowed to make his state a safe haven for women from other states who are seeking abortions if Roe v. Wade. is overturned. Several states, including Oklahoma, Florida, and Texas, have recently limited abortions.

Meanwhile, the identity of the leaker remains known only to Politico reporters, although many believe that a law clerk to a Supreme Court justice may be the person behind it.

Alito’s colleagues, Chief Justice John Roberts, and Justice Clarence Thomas, were also set to speak separately at a similar conference in Atlanta, Georgia, for the 11th Circuit on Thursday and Friday, according to a program obtained by the outlet. It is unclear if they will still appear at that event or not.

Suspected Terrorists Who Crossed Border Into United States May Have Been Released: Mayorkas

Suspected Terrorists Who Crossed Border Into United States May Have Been Released: Mayorkas

Some of the 42 illegal immigrants who were arrested by U.S. border agents and identified as suspected terrorists may have been released into the United States, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandryo Mayorkas said on May 4.

“Some may be placed in removal proceedings. Some may be placed in criminal custody. Some may be cooperating with law enforcement. Some may be downgraded from the terrorist rating,” Mayorkas told the Senate Homeland & Governmental Affairs Committee in Washington.

Mayorkas said officials in his agency know the “precise disposition” of each of the 42 suspected terrorists but declined to share that information in a public setting.

Instead, he offered to give a classified briefing to Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), who had been questioning him.

“I look forward to getting that information,” Portman said.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently revealed that 42 people on the terror watchlist “attempted to enter the United States illegally” and were arrested by border agents between Jan. 20, 2021 and March 2022. The watchlist is maintained by the FBI, which says people on it are “reasonably suspected to be involved in terrorism (or related activities).”

In a hearing in late April, Mayorkas said he did not know whether any of the terrorists had been released into the United States, triggering criticism from Republicans.

In his opening statement, Portman, the ranking member of the Senate panel, described himself as shocked when he learned about the number of suspected terrorists apprehended.

Other Republicans during the hearing on Wednesday also touched on the issue.

The 42 “are the ones we know you caught; we don’t know how many you didn’t,” Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) told Mayorkas.

Sen. Gary Peters (D-Mich.), the panel’s chairman, took a different angle regarding the watchlist.

Peters said Arab-Americans, including those in the state he represents, have “long endured lengthy and intrusive screening when traveling” and noted that Biden while campaigning in 2020 promised to order DHS to review how people are placed on the watchlist and the no-fly list to make sure that the processes “do not have an adverse impact on individuals or groups based on national origin, race, religion or ethnicity” and to “improve the process to remove names, when justified, from these lists.”

“Can you provide an update on the progress of your review and when you expect changes to be implemented?” Peters asked.

Mayorkas said the work is underway but that he could not provide any further information at this time.

Watch: Chaos Breaks Out After Masked Antifa Members Show Up to GOP Rally

Watch: Chaos Breaks Out After Masked Antifa Members Show Up to GOP Rally

The resource-strapped Portland Police Bureau (PPB) reportedly took more than 20 minutes to respond when alleged antifa members assaulted a Saturday campaign event near police headquarters in downtown Portland.

By the time officers had “sufficient resources” to establish a crime scene near Southwest 3rd and Main Street, the black-clad demonstrators had already dispersed after hurling smoke grenades, paint-filled balloons and fireworks, according to police. Two were injured by “mortars,” police said.

The protesters’ violence cut short the event in support of Republican gubernatorial candidate Stan Pulliam, whose platform includes refunding the police.

“This is what happens when a Republican dares to hold an event in Portland to talk about funding our police. Antifa shows up,” Pulliam tweeted along with footage of the incident.

Pulliam also claimed the “underfunded police didn’t show in time to allow our free speech.”

Speaking to media after the incident, Pulliam said what he and his supporters experienced is what “neighbors throughout the Portland community have to experience on almost a daily basis.”

“We called the police, we called 911,” he said. “In fact, at the Justice of Peace Center, we were just outside of their headquarters, sat on hold for over 20 minutes. No police officers ever arrive until the very end, just to take our statement.”

Pulliam contrasted when Portland had 30 officers per 100,000 people in the 1970s to the present-day ratio of eight per 100,000.

“And then we wonder why we have all the violence and destruction happening on our streets,” he added.

A statement from the PPB confirmed that while a sergeant began monitoring the situation and gathering available resources, there “were only a few officers available in the precinct.”

The incident came the same day PPB released a separate statement describing Friday night into Saturday as “an extraordinarily busy evening of significant events” that strained their resources. The night included five shootings, three serious crashes and one stolen ambulance within a 12-hour span.

Officers responded to a call about shots fired and people throwing objects off an overpass while a protest “convoy” driving through Portland was confronted by a group of counter-demonstrators.

Given limited staffing, Portland residents calling 911 are often left on hold for hours during evening spikes in calls, which police are forced to prioritize calls based on seriousness.

The Royal Bank of Canada says one-fifth of container ships are currently stuck at global ports

A new study by the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) has found that 20% of container ships are currently stuck in congestion at various major ports. According to the report, published on Tuesday and seen by Reuters, China’s Covid lockdowns, the conflict in Ukraine, and other strains are causing longer delays at ports, driving up costs.

RBC data shows that ships awaiting berth at the Port of Shanghai now tally 344. That is a 34% increase over the past month, with shipping from a warehouse in China to one in the United States currently taking 74 days longer than usual.

The same can be seen in Europe, where ships from China are showing up an average of four days late.

“Global port congestion is worsening and becoming increasingly widespread,” RBC analysts said, acknowledging that it’s hard to say when things will improve. The plethora of problems is having a “domino-like negative compounding effect across various markets,” they added.

According to the report, since the start of the war in Ukraine and the sinking of several ships in the Black Sea, insurers have hiked premiums to between 1% and 5% of the value of ships compared to the pre-war levels of 0.25%.

Meanwhile, marine fuel prices in Singapore, the world’s largest refueling port, have soared 66% over the past year.

WTO halves global trade growth forecast

“Many market participants thought that supply chains would be untangled by now, but this scenario has failed to materialize,”the report said. It showed that the average global delay of a ship’s arrival was still 7.26 days in March. The figure rarely topped 4.5 days during normal times.

The research also noted that the ban of Russian-flagged vessels from key European ports has led to a re-routed flow and is pushing increased container ship activity at those ports.

The aggregate Time of Turnaround (ToT) for the three largest European container ports – Rotterdam, Antwerp, and Hamburg – are 8%, 30%, and 21% respectively above their five-year normal levels.

“Significant compression of ToT times [is] required before we can confidently suggest a path toward normalizing shipping costs,” RBC analysts said, adding: “The problem? Things are getting worse.”
