    Senator Rand Paul's neighbor Rene Boucher has pleaded not guilty after being charged for attacking the Senator at his Kentucky home. Paul is currently recovering after he was allegedly tackled from behind by Boucher for what Boucher's attorney told CBS News in a statement "was a very regrettable dispute between two neighbors over a matter that most people would regard as trivial." But Paul appears to be disputing claims made by his next-door neighbor's lawyer that a "trivial" dispute over landscaping issues were at the root of a recent dust-up that left the senator with six broken ribs. The statement...

    "Too long a sacrifice / Can make a stone of the heart," the Irish poet W.B. Yeats wrote, having witnessed the violence of the 1916 Easter Rising and its aftermath. In an America more divided than ever, and with the left more radicalized than ever, there are all too many hearts of stone. The Washington shooting of Steve Scalise and other Republican lawmakers back in June; the attack on Sen. Rand Paul last week; and now the massacre in Southerland Springs, Texas – all of them appear to have been carried out by persons motivated at least in part by...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Rand Paul was recovering Sunday from five broken ribs after he was assaulted by a neighbor who tackled him from behind at the senator’s Kentucky home, officials said. Senior Adviser Doug Stafford said it is unclear when the Republican will return to work since he is in considerable pain and has difficulty getting around, including flying. Stafford said this type of injury is marked by severe pain that can last for weeks to months. “This type of injury is caused by high velocity severe force,” Stafford said in an email to The Associated Press.

    In Bowling Green, Kentucky, a neighbor of Senator Rand Paul assaulted him outside Paul’s home: Rene Boucher, 59, of Bowling Green, was charged with one count of fourth-degree assault in the incident, which occurred at about 3:20 p.m. local time Friday, Kentucky State Police said. Paul’s injuries are being described as “minor,” but they don’t sound so minor to me: The arrest warrant in the case indicates that Paul told police his neighbor came onto his property and tackled him from behind, forcing him to the ground and causing pain. According to the warrant, Paul had injuries to his face...

    Full Title: Was The Las Vegas Shooting A Preview Of The Violent Chaos That Antifa Plans To Unleash Starting On November 4th? On November 4th, Antifa is pledging to “gather in the streets and public squares of cities and towns across this country”, and they are promising not to end their protests until “the Trump/Pence Regime” is “removed from power”. But of course these won’t be entirely peaceful protests. In fact, Antifa activists are very open about the fact that “violence is necessary” in order to achieve their goals. This open embrace of violence has gotten the attention of federal...

    Dear Members of the Antifa, You’ve had quite a run in the last year, haven’t you? You’ve assaulted hundreds of Trump supporters at rallies, vandalized property in the nation’s capital and gone on an arson rampage because you were upset Milo was going to speak. In Charlottesville, you arrived on the scene, prepared to commit violence yourselves. Instead, your sick plans were superseded by the monstrous behavior of people as lunatic as you are. The only difference being that the extreme right doesn’t have two cable news networks working as agit-prop wings for them every day, like you do. Last...

    In a pair of tweets Wednesday, Brzezinski said the president’s “both sides” reaction to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, “created a permissive climate for violence.” She suggested that “blood and carnage” will be on the president’s hands and the president’s cabinet and staff will have that same blood on their hands unless they “speak out, step down or act decisively.”

    In recent days we've seen a massive upsurge in leftwing violence. The most devastating was the attempted assassination of Republican congressmen at baseball practice. Even before the election, liberal activists have been attacking supporters of Donald Trump -- leaving behind a trail of bloodied and beaten men and women. Their only crime -- loving America. And the hate and vitriol has only gotten worse since President Trump was sworn into office. But beyond the violence, we are seeing conservatives silenced on public school campuses. Christians are being thrown out of the public marketplace. And any speech the Left opposes is...

    RAHWAY — A longtime Democratic operative from Union County has responded to the Wednesday shooting of a congressman by calling for a “hunt” of Republicans. James Devine posted several messages on Facebook and Twitter following the Alexandra, Virginia, shooting of U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise and several others by a gunman with a history of violence and of making online rantings against Republican officials and their policies.

    Cutting off federal funds to permissive universities and police departments is a good first step When I first saw the video of the Berkeley riots from this past weekend, I thought to myself, well, it’s good that those on the Political Right are fighting back. After a few minutes, though, I realized that unless the police and the courts stop this, someone will eventually get killed. It’s hard to blame folks on the Right for showing up prepared for a fight, especially in radical whack-a-doodle Berkeley. The authorities there – if you can even call them that — seldom do...

    A man who fired shots near a ticket counter at Houston's largest airport on Thursday was killed after being confronted by a law enforcement official, a Houston police spokesman said. Shots were fired near a ticket counter at Houston's largest airport on Thursday, and the man who was killed after being confronted by a law enforcement official. It's unclear if the man fatally shot himself or was killed by a Homeland Security agent who had confronted him, said Houston police spokesman Kese Smith. The man's name was not released by police, but they said he was about 30-years-old. The agent,...

    An 18-year-old Chicago-area man accused of planning to join an al Qaeda-linked group fighting in Syria has been arrested by the FBI, the agency said on Saturday. Abdella Ahmad Tounisi of Aurora, Illinois, was taken into custody late on Friday as he prepared to board a plane at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport bound for Turkey, the FBI said in a statement. It added that Tounisi was a friend of Adel Daoud, an American accused of trying to stage a bombing outside a downtown Chicago bar last year. The agency said Tounisi had not been involved in that plot. Tounisiappeared before...

    Steven Crowder attempted to start a dialogue at a protest against the Right To Work bill in Michigan (which prohibits coercion to join a union, as you can imagine the Bolsheviks running them don't like that).As we've come to expect from the left, every "fear" and accusation of violence they have coming from conservatives is proven to be pure projection of their on proclivities whenever they get the chance to show it.See the video of Crowder getting attacked here. If you're on Twitter retweet it here.

    Hanged census-taker Bill Sparkman in rural Kentucky fueled media speculation that he’d been killed by anti-government Tea Partiers. In fact, he’d killed himselfe. Joe Stack flew his small plane into an IRS building in Austin, Texas. The media immediately suggested that the anti-tax rhetoric of the Tea Party led to the attack. In fact, Stack’s suicide note quoted the Communist Manifesto. A professor at the University of Alabama, Amy Bishop, shot and killed three colleagues at a faculty meeting. The Tea Party came under immediate suspicion. But Bishop was a lifelong Democrat and Obama donor. John Patrick Bedell shot two...

    You know who used to like to use fire-bombs? The KKK. Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) Freedom Riders arrived in Anniston in May 1961. The KKK threw firebombs on the bus, which forced the Freedom Riders out of the bus into the violent arms of the KKK, who wielded bats and chains upon the Freedom Riders. What sets YOU apart from barbarians? Are you "willing to do anything it takes to support progress"? Well, are you?

    It took less than 24 hours for the political Left to seize upon the attempted assassination of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the murder of six people on Saturday to blame the political Right for the shooting. Perhaps the most egregious example came from Paul Krugman of the New York Times, who wrote "We don't have proof yet that this was political, but the odds are that it was." (The newspaper that published plagiarized and fabricated accounts of the "D.C. sniper" by affirmative-action hire Jayson Blair in 2003 is still publishing unsubstantiated suppositions without "proof," eh?) "[Giffords'] father says that ‘the...

    "Missouri governor was intended target of stabbing at MCC-Penn Valley," reads the headline of today's Kansas City Star. On Tuesday, mistaking the community college dean, Al Dimmitt, for Governor Jay Nixon, student Casey Brezik, 2 2, slashed the dean's throat, almost killing him. The governor, on the way to the college, cancelled his visit. Not surprisingly, the story has gotten almost no attention beyond Kansas City. The media do not want you to know Brezik's politics. As his Facebook page makes clear, he seems to have absorbed just about every left wing gripe in the academic ether

    As NewsBusters reported Sunday, a May Day rally turned ugly in Santa Cruz, California, Saturday when some attendees started a riot breaking windows and defacing property. City officials estimate that at least $100,000 worth of damage was done. A little north in San Francisco, three people supporting Arizona's new anti-illegal immigration law were attacked at that city's May Day event. Despite the violence, the reporter for ABC-TV affiliate KGO used an offshoot of "mostly peaceful" to describe the festivities (video follows with partial transcript and commentary):
