  • Radical left plot to assassinate opponents no longer unthinkable, Berlin warns

    For years, far-left activists in Berlin followed the strategy of attacking property, not people. But that is changing, the Berlin interior ministry claimed on Tuesday. 2016 was marked out by a spiral in left-wing violence that not only led to a multitude of serious crimes, but also in part to a radicalized tone which has seen calls for the murder of police officers and politicians, the ministry warned in its security report for 2016, released on Tuesday. The inhibition threshold regarding physical attacks is sinking, and we are now at the stage where targeted assassination of political opponents no...

The game, "Push Trump Off A Cliff Again," instructs users to "Take out your frustrations with [the] President by pushing him off a virtual cliff, or into a virtual volcano." A virtual Trump shouts out phrases including "Bye!" and "I'm really rich!" as he tumbles to his death.

    PORTLAND Rep. Scott Hamann, D-South Portland, has been removed from two legislative committees because of statements he made online that suggested he would harm President Donald Trump if he got close enough. Three days after images of a profane Facebook post that Hamann wrote began to circulate online, House Speaker Sara Gideon, D-Freeport, said she has removed Hamann from his seats on the Health and Human Services Committee and the Marijuana Legalization Implementation Committee. In the post, Hamann, 36, called the president a joke, a rapist and a criminal, seethed against his supporters and Republicans more generally and said...

    This is a story that needs to go viral and that needs to be covered by every conservative and patriotic new outlet in America and Europe. It concerns what everyone is calling a Day of The Jackal style plot to assassinate President Emmanuel Macron of France on Bastille day in front of President Trump. The Day Of The Jackal, (The original book and movie not the remake with Bruce Willis which is crap) Is about the attempted assassination of then president Charles De Gaulle by Army radicals after De Gaulle declared independence for Algeria.

    Kim Jong Nam's son did not want body handed over to N. Korea By MASATOMO NORIKYO/ Correspondent July 2, 2017 at 13:10 JST KUALA LUMPUR--The son of Kim Jong Nam, the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, pleaded with Malaysian authorities not to turn over his father's body to North Korea following his assassination in February. However, the pleadings made by Kim Han Sol fell on deaf ears as Malaysian authorities chose instead to secure the release of their diplomats and repatriated the body in compliance with North Korean demands at the end of March. According to...
  • Dem Senator REFUSES to Disclose 8 Years of Emails from Shooter Hodgkinson

    Dick Durbin, the leftist partisan hack who has advocated filibustering President Trumps Supreme Court picks, has something to hide. The Associated Press has reported that GOP baseball shooter James Hodgkinson has been involved with at least two Democratic senators from his home state. Clearly these two senators are Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth. Durbin, who has long been an apologist for Islam, apparently is a defender of liberal aspiring killers as well. If the emails are so innocuous, why not just release them? What does Dick Durbin have to hide? From DailyCaller Democratic Illinois Sen. Dick Durbins office will not...

    American Thinker ^ | 06/27/2017 | David Zukerman
    Howard Jacobson, in his June 24 New York Times op-ed piece, "Why We Must Mock Trump," began by referring to the anti-Trump production of Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" in New York's Central Park, as proof "that plays retain the power to shock and enrage." Do productions of "Julius Caesar," played straight, generally "shock and enrage"? I don't think so. And this production is not straight Shakespeare not with reference to President Trump's apartment on "Fifth Avenue." At the end of his column, Jacobson asserted, "Derision is a social necessity." Okay. Imagine, say, Kathy Griffin holding what looks like the severed...

    Democrats have so normalized hatred and violence against the president of the United States that I fear it will result in some crazy lefty trying to assassinate him. And its not just the president at whom their rage is directed. It's all Republicans and conservatives. They are no longer the opposition party. They are the reckless party, putting lives in danger. Look its one thing to disagree It's what Americas all about. But we are now in a danger zone of complete hatred and chaos unlike anything we've witnessed in American history. The normalization of calling for the assassination, decapitation...

    It is getting extremely difficult to keep track of the ever increasing number of fading Hollywood stars threatening to harm or kill President Donald Trump. The latest outrage occurred when overrated actor Johnny Depp joked about assassinating the President at a U.K. music festival. He asked the crowd When was the last time an actor assassinated a President? This was obviously a reference to actor John Wilkes Booth who assassinated President Abraham Lincoln. He dug an even deeper hole when he followed his question by making a thinly veiled threat on the Presidents life. Amazingly, he told the crowd, its...

    Johnny Depp has issued an apology for a controversial comment about President Donald Trump, asking, When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone, the actor said in a statement to People on Friday. Depps joke, in reference to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth in 1865, was made during an appearance at the Glastonbury Festival. I want to qualify, I

    When James Hodgkinson walked onto the baseball field and fired on those practicing a beloved American game, he committed the most serious political assassination in decades. The Capitol Police were there at the scene, and they acted in saving lives. If they had not, it would have been a massacre. There was little for the FBI to do here. The motives of the shooter are pretty clear, and he had a list of names of his targets. He ranted and raved about Republicans on social media, and he asked before the shooting were the players Republicans or Democrats. Looks like...

    I was watching reruns of The Big Bang Theory on TBS last night, and they had promos for the movie, Olympus Has Fallen, which airs tonight. The plot of the movie involves North Korean terrorists who size the White House, kill dozens of people, and hold the President hostage. TBS cuts the promo to play this plot for laughs. In one promo, the VP in the Situation Room are communicating with the terrorist over a video connection, and the terrorist threatens to kill the President, and a scenes from the end of the movie is cut in where everybody in...

    In a year that he would like to forget, which included his acrimonious divorce to Amber Heard, Johnny Depp appeared at a Q&A at the new Cinemageddon stage at Glastonbury. Introducing his 2004 film The Libertine, about a 17th-century poet who notoriously drank himself to an early death, the 54-year-old chose to discuss American politics. "I think [Donald] Trump needs help," he said. "There are a lot of dark places he could go." He added: "I'm not insinuating anything - by the way this will be in the press and it will be horrible - but when was the last...

The cable network is using the sponsorship of the graphic assassination of President Donald Trump on stage to promote a new series about Shakespeare, Will, scheduled to premiere on July 10. The announcement follows the recent loss of sponsorships and controversy surrounding the Oskar Eustis-helmed production, which depicts Caesar as a Trump-like politician.

  • It's Not "Overheated Political Rhetoric," But the Left's Penchant for Viciousness and Violence

    What's all this caterwauling about "overheated political rhetoric"? Republicans and Democrats are falling all over themselves to blame partisan rhetoric for the shooting of a Republican Congressman yesterday by a deranged Sanders-ista. I know; that's redundant. But there's nothing wrong with passion. ("Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice," said Barry Goldwater). Without righteous indignation, we would have had no American Revolution, abolitionists or the Civil Rights movement. If you can't tell the difference between outrage and incitement, you shouldn't be involved in the political process. If I decry the crime wave caused by illegal immigration, am I...
