Supreme Court rejects last ditch effort to stay federal execution

As the nation copes with the aftermath of the January 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol by thousands of angry supporters of President Donald Trump, the United States Supreme Court made a shocking announcement regarding the fate of a female death row inmate scheduled for execution on Tuesday.

According to the Washington Examiner, a last-minute attempt to stay the execution of a woman named Lisa Montgomery was denied by the High Court, paving the way for the last federal execution of a prisoner before Trump’s term expires and perhaps the last federal execution for years to come. 

Chief Justice John Roberts was presented with the application in an 11th-hour attempt to stay Montgomery’s death sentence, but in an unsigned order on the day of her scheduled execution, the Supreme Court rejected the application.

According to the Associated Press, Montgomery, who was the first female prisoner executed in the federal system since 1951, was pronounced deceased early on Wednesday morning, just hours after the Supreme Court decision.

Montgomery was imprisoned for her role in the strangling death of a pregnant Missouri mother and her crime was especially gruesome as she reportedly cut the baby out of the mother’s womb with a kitchen knife. Montgomery took the baby and attempted to pass it off as her own before she was eventually arrested.

Her attorney, Kelley Henry, slammed the Trump administration for allowing the execution of a woman who she attempted to argue was severely mentally ill and the subject of torture in her childhood that left her emotionally and mentally scarred.

“The craven bloodlust of a failed administration was on full display tonight,” Henry said in a statement. “Everyone who participated in the execution of Lisa Montgomery should feel shame.”

Two other federal inmates who were scheduled for their executions before the end of the Trump administration managed to escape the end of their lives, for now, as their executions were halted by a federal judge for the District of Columbia after the two tested positive last month for the COVID-19 virus.

President-elect Joe Biden is expected to end federal executions once he assumes office.

    1. i’m really tired of the mentaly ill argument . hell if shes the mentaly ill thats a point in favor of her execution.

      1. Do not forget democrats are mentally ill and cannot think properly they retort on booze like Pelosi and could not survive w/o drugs

  1. Has anyone asked the family…..especially the child…….of this innocent woman this monster viciously murdered what they thought? Have any of them been given any ‘mercy’? She should have been put down as soon as she was convicted!!!

    1. EXACTLY. The mutilated mother doesn’t get a 2nd chance and she did nothing wrong.

      Instead of releasing criminals to remove overcrowding, start carrying out death sentences. The victims do not get a 2nd chance. COOK ‘EM UP. THEY DID THE CRIMES.

    2. The Left is always the “woo is me” and “poor thing”, but you have to wonder if it was their daughter, their grandchild, would they be feeling the same? These are the very ones that find it acceptable to abort a baby up to the time it’s born. They are really very strange people in my eyes.

    3. Exactly, why should the taxpayers be punished by paying for her prison costs ?? We coddle the imprisoned, hell turn back the clock. For example, if caught and found guilty of theft, cut off the crooks hand!! Rape ? Cut off his ‘wee willy’.

  2. Strangled a Pregnant Woman, then cut the baby out with a Kitchen Knife, she LIVED WAY PAST what I would have given her. Execution after Trial !

    1. Exactly, We are being bled to death for excess legal and court costs to just go over and over appeal after appeal. They were found guilty and sentenced. Carry out the sentence swiftly after trial. They had their chances.

  3. “Two other federal inmates who were scheduled for their executions before the end of the Trump administration managed to escape the end of their lives, for now, as their executions were halted by a federal judge for the District of Columbia after the two tested positive last month for the COVID-19 virus.”

    Soooo… The convicts have to be healthy before the government can put them to death? That’s like putting alcohol on the arm of the person who’s going to receive a lethal injection. It’s a waste of time and alcohol.

  4. Congrats! Who knew what it would take for the Supreme Court of the US
    to grow a pair! They sure hid them well during the Election Process.
    God Bless America!!!!

  5. Some things simply Demand execution.
    This is the top of the list.
    So she was abused.. A lot of us were egregiously abused, but didn’t get vengeance on the innocent.
    We simply made our way in life & grateful to have survived.
    The old saying “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” is true. At least for most. Teaches you what NOT to do
    She needed to be eliminated.

  6. I have no longer any faith in our Supreme Court….They were either bought off or scared sh–l—!!! I never seen such a bunch of yellow snakes………….!

    1. I so agree with you Lynn —our justice system sucks —they let criminal back on the street after they serve a short time —what about the victim —where are their rights….this is sooo wrong…where is the backbone we use to have in our system…or are they being paid off like our government….

    2. Agree! I have no faith in either political party, judges, lawyers, etc. we have been overrun by the entire political spectrum of evil backstabbers. It’s true that the love of money is the root of all evil.

  7. She got what she ask for! Any one that would anything like that has got to be crazy and not to be put to death due to being is crazy also! They did the right thing now the family can Rest In Peace!

  8. So what if the convicts caught the Wuhan virus. Throw a mask on and social distance. What a terrible ruling by the lunatic Federal judge. Now, taxpayers will on the hook for their incarceration bills until they die in jail. If only there were a way to hold these goofy judges accountable – how about sending the incarceration bills to the judge to pay.

  9. One needs to remember that the fence was put up around the capital because of the BLM and ANTIFA and it was breached by them and for reasons unknown stupid Trump supporters followed them in an d gave the democants a big hammer of revenge

  10. When does JUSTICE Roberts get his execution for his part in not upholding the constitution and going to epsteins island? His injustices??? We’re waiting!!!

    1. Independent he has not gone anywhere and his supporters and his political ideology are still here and are now stronger than ever, he is a martyr sir.

    2. I hope you like what is coming to you in the next four years when you FINALLY realize you made a terrible mistake, then you will have received exactly what you deserved!! DON’T COMPLAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. That woman’s lawyer ought to be fried! What an idiot! To defend someone guilty of such a heinous crime is one thing, but to blow oral butt-gas about the President is nothing but pure grand-standing! Moron!

  12. Biden will end all executions. Gee, bail them out if they get arrested, no jail time. Now no executions. There is nothing to discourage criminals from doing whatever they wish to do. AND Biden wants to make sure law-abiding citizens cannot have guns. No self protection, no government protection. Free reign for criminals.

  13. The Moron lawyer says that if we agree with the execution, we ought to feel shame….I wonder what the mother who had her baby cut out of feels? Oh yeah…SHE’S DEAD!

  14. Sad we want to fight to save a worthless criminal who committed a heinous crime. Why do tax payers have to pay the bill for this criminals? They made their bed now sleep in it. No one every cares about the victim. The country is quickly becoming a communist state due to the leftist Democrats. God bless America

  15. Great and we need to get rid of many more on death row, we are tired of supporting the menaces to society the rest of their lives. Give them one appeal and if they fail, execute them. They sit on death row for years costing us money, time to get rid of them.

  16. Why is this lawyer so worried about the death of one woman, who committed a serious crime? The Democrats support the murder of millions of babies every year.

  17. Now, if only we could put the REAL criminals on death row… You know, Pelosi, Schumer, AOC (and her magpies), oh yes, and Maxine (Mad Maxine) Waters. And while we’re at it, how about Acosta, Lemon, Maddow, etc.?

    1. So true!! Trump did not have enough time to clear the swamp!! also, so sad that the swamp will be full again with all the low life’s the Democratic party is bringing in!! Lord help us!


  19. Wait just one minute. Are you telling me that you can avoid the death penalty by getting the flu? WTF? Why the hell would it matter if your are sick if you are just going to be put to sleep never to wake up again anyway?
    Screw your damn feelings. What about the facts? Only feelings and not facts matter now? Total insanity. The only country in the world where the criminals have more rights than the rights of the law abiding citizens.

  20. A death sentence well deserved and it come much later than it should have. She should have been executed one year after her death sentence was handed down. That is plenty of time to go through the appeals process. one County. one State, one District, one SCOTUS.

  21. I am going to go ahead and save this content for my sister for a coming up study project for school. This is a appealing blog by the way. Where did you get the template for this website?

  22. I am not sure where you are getting your info, but great topic. I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more. Thanks for great info I was looking for this info for my mission.
