Supreme Court chief justice directs marshal to investigate leak, calls out ‘egregious breach of…trust’–Chief Justice John Roberts called the leak a ‘betrayal of the confidences of the Court’ | 3 May 2022 | The Supreme Court issued a response to the report of a draft opinion that, if published, would overturn Roe v. Wade, with Chief Justice John Roberts strongly condemning the leak to the press.

Roberts also spoke out against the notion that the leak could succeed as a political maneuver to influence the outcome of the case. “To the extent this betrayal of the confidences of the Court was intended to undermine the integrity of our operations, it will not succeed. The work of the Court will not be affected in any way,” Roberts said.

Leo Terrell on ‘Fox & Friends’: Democrats are ‘ecstatic’ after Supreme Court leaker changed the news cycle –Terrell says leak of SCOTUS draft opinion on abortion case shifts focus from ‘disastrous’ Biden policies | Fox News contributor Leo Terrell said Tuesday on “Fox & Friends” that the Supreme Court leaker has “changed the news cycle,” distracting from Joe Biden’s policies. The civil rights attorney said Democrats are “ecstatic” over the focus shifting off of inflation, Ukraine and crime. LEO TERRELL: This to me was designed to change the current narrative away from the disastrous Biden administration. It’s designed to focus on the midterm. It’s designed to get people angry, emotional and it worked. We changed the news cycle. This leaker has changed the news cycle. The number one story is the leak. And the Democrats are ecstatic right now because the focus is off gas prices, inflation, the war in Ukraine, crime in the streets, critical race theory, all being distracted by the leaker.
COVID jabs increase stroke risk by 11,361 percent | 3 May 2022 | Getting “vaccinated” for the COVID-19 is a great way to massively increase your risk of suffering a stroke, government data show. Data from the United States government’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) show that a jabbed person is about 115 times more likely to suffer a stroke compared to a non-jabbed person. Taking a COVID shot or two increases the risk of stroke by 11,361 percent. Between December of 2020 and the 11th of February in 2022, 4,532 cases of covid jab-related stroke were logged. VAERS only captures about one percent of all vaccine reactions. Comparatively, the number of strokes that occurred as a result of flu shots between 2008 and 2020, a range of 12 to 13 years, is just 122. “Taking these numbers at face value, you could assume that the Covid-19 injections have proven to be 37 times more likely to cause a stroke than the flu vaccines,” reports the Daily Expose (UK).
