Our institutions are facing the most dangerous of threats — they are being degraded from within by people who care more about agendas than traditions.
Until now, we haven’t needed a law criminalizing the intentional politicization of our highest court, because until now, we haven’t had anyone corrupt enough to cross that line.
All of that changed when somebody leaked a preliminary draft of the SCOTUS ruling on the upcoming abortion decision. Many of us were shocked to learn that, while the leaker might wind up being disbarred, there is no actual law on the books for which such a flagrant undermining of (and threat to the integrity of) our political process can applied to such a leak.
It had never occurred to anyone that this might a problem that needed solving. But in a time when the incentives to achieve a political end exeed the benefits of playing by the rules, we are seeing the serious consequences of John Adams’ quote about the ‘whale through the net’ play out in real-time.
When six Republican-appointed SCOTUS judges had their home addresses published so they could be harassed in their home, the dangerous implications of political leaks of the court’s business became real enough.
Democrats don’t seem very bothered by the politicization of the judicial branch despite the fact that the Framers were very careful to construct the judiciary to be as removed from public and political influence as could be made possible.
Neither state nor federal laws criminalizing the picketing of judges’ homes were enforced against the protesters.
To prevent this from happening again, House Republicans have drafted legislation intended to re-establish the secrecy of the deliberations among SCOTUS.

The Leaker Accountability Act of 2022.
Here’s the meat of it:
What do you think? Will the threat of 5 years in prison be a deterrent?
Or is our law enforcement and judiciary so far gone that no laws broken in the service of Democrat causes will ever be enforced again?
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
