Pro-Abortion Groups Target Churches
Law Enforcement Bracing for Violent Protests

May 7, 2022
Between May 2-6, the following related Flash SMS
messages were sent to AlertsUSA subscriber mobile devices:

5/2 - Security increasing around US Supreme Court building flwg leak of draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade. Large protests expected. Caution urged in the District.

5/6 - Pro-abortion groups are calling for demonstrations at Catholic churches in the US on Mother's Day to protest the leaked SCOTUS ruling striking down Roe v Wade.

What You Need To Know

On Monday of this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified of an increase in security and the installation of non-scalable fence and other barriers around the U.S. Supreme court following the leak and subsequent publication of a draft majority opinion overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision which guaranteed protection of access to abortions, and a 1992 decision (Planned Parenthood v. Casey) that upheld the right.

Needless to say, news of the leaked opinion sent shockwaves through both the pro- and anti-abortion collectives across the nation (one enraged, the other rejoicing). Since Tuesday, protests have been held in U.S. cities coast to coast, including Washington, DC, Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Salt Lake, Los Angeles and Seattle, as pro-abortion activist groups urged supporters to demonstrate at “courthouses and federal buildings everywhere.”

These protests have been steadily increasing in size and level of agitation as different activist groups spin up their efforts to leverage the development. As an example, Antifa is suddenly active again in Portland and Seattle.

Social Media Threats

There have also been an increasing number of posts on social media calling for violence, with some suggesting that churches be targeted with arson attacks. According to an Intelligence Note published this week by the Central Florida Intelligence Exchange, one social media post suggested that the only way to destroy the state as well as “nationalist and clerical fascist movements” is through a combative approach, and that the point was not to make them “listen through militant reformism, but to take away their capacity to ever act on us/them in the first place.”

Pro-life extremists have also been posting to various social media platforms inciting attacks targeting abortion clinics and practitioners.

Mother's Day Surprise

On Friday, AlertsUSA subscribers were notified of calls by pro-abortion groups for demonstrations at Catholic churches across the U.S. on Sunday, May 8th, which is also Mother's Day. Organizers suggest including groups holding signs, wearing Handmaids Tale outfits, passing flyers to church goers, as well as doing a 'die-in.'

Readers are cautioned that while the groups are calling for demonstrations at Catholic churches, protests are possible at any place of worship, of any faith, with an anti-abortion stance. These protests are expected to continue well beyond this weekend in an effort to potentially sway members of the court to change their vote before the final opinion is released in June, or to influence Congress to pass legislation codifying abortion access into federal law.

So, from the pro-abortion perspective, there is added urgency to be noisy.

AlertsUSA encourages readers to keep up with local news and public event calendars so as to avoid the demonstrations.

Increased Caution and Vigilance Urged

For those serving on church security teams, you likely already know if your place of worship is a potential target for demonstrations. Aside from what is taught from the pulpit, is the church active in any form of public anti-abortion activities? If your answer is even remotely yes, now would be a good time to engage other team members and local law enforcement in a simple conversation about what-if's.

As an example, what if your church building is damaged or defaced with graffiti, as happened this week to Sacred Heart of Mary Parish in Boulder, Colorado?

Or what if a crowd of demonstrators is blocking member entry into the church, or preventing church members from exiting?

Have the conversation. Get on the same page.

As a final note on this report, late Friday, while speaking at a judicial conference in Atlanta, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas stated the following:

As a society, "we are becoming addicted to wanting particular outcomes, not living with the outcomes we don't like."

"We can't be an institution that can be bullied into giving you just the outcomes you want. The events from earlier this week are a symptom of that."

AlertsUSA continues to monitor the domestic and international threat environment around the clock and will immediately notify service subscribers, via SMS messages to their mobile devices, of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture for American citizens as events warrant.

Ukraine War Update

May 7, 2022
What You Need To Know

According to the UK Ministry of Defense:

At least one T-90M (shown above), Russia's most advanced tank, has been destroyed in fighting. The T-90M was introduced in 2016 and includes improved armor, an upgraded gun and enhanced satellite navigation systems.

(Kyiv first reported the presence of the T-90M in eastern Ukraine on April 25. See a video of the kill shot here.)

Approximately 100 T-90M tanks are currently in service amongst Russia's best equipped units, including those fighting in Ukraine. The system’s upgraded armor, designed to counter anti-tank weaponry, remains vulnerable if unsupported by other force elements.

The conflict in Ukraine is taking a heavy toll on some of Russia’s most capable units and most advanced capabilities. It will take considerable time and expense for Russia to reconstitute its armed forces following this conflict.

It will be particularly challenging to replace modernized and advanced equipment due to sanctions restricting Russia’s access to critical microelectronic components.

China Must Pay A Price For COVID-19

A ruling group, which tightly controls the bureaucracy and continually boasts about its competence, deliberately spread the disease beyond China’s borders. As of Thursday, that means the Communist Party murdered more than 6.2 million people outside China, a toll reported by the John Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center. That total included 996,886 Americans.

China has killed Americans, and there must be severe consequences.

Terminate Cuba’s 20K Annual Quota of Migrants

The U.S. Embassy in Havana announced recently that it would restore some visa processing that had been suspended because of “sonic attack” and COVID concerns. However, instead of increasing consular staff and ramping up migrant processing, Washington should move to terminate the unprecedented migrant program that provides 20,000 Cuban admissions yearly into the United States. No other country receives such a privileged immigration quota, which started more than 25 years ago as part of an agreement between the Clinton administration and the Castro regime, and today is known as the “Cuban Family Reunification Parole” program. Resuming this extraordinary migrant quota undercuts normal U.S. immigration law and indirectly supports the Communist dictatorship in Havana, as tens of thousands of Cubans who might otherwise stay to fight for the democratization and opening up of their country instead see their future in the United States.

Turkey: NATO's Pro-Putin Ally

Turkey's "balancing act" during the Russian invasion of Ukraine is the result of the country's Islamist leader's two-decade long indoctrination of a generation of Turks to make them "pious." President Recep Tayyip Erdogan may or may not have raised pious generations, as he declared was his political mission, but he has definitely raised an anti-Western generation. That anti-Western sentiment once again makes Turkey the odd-man-out in NATO.
