    A man was arrested Thursday for allegedly leaving threatening voicemails for two members of Congress, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.). Sixty-three-year-old Carlos Bayon, who resides in New York, is charged with making threats across state lines. Scalise, the No. 3 Republican in the House, was shot during the GOP's congressional baseball practice last year and sustained near-fatal injuries. “Whip Scalise is grateful to law enforcement for their actions. He will never forget how their heroism saved his life and those of his colleagues last year," Scalise spokeswoman Lauren Fine told The Hill in a statement. "As he has...

    PORTLAND, Ore. – A local non-profit food cart in Southwest Portland say they have been forced to close due to alleged harassment and threats coming from protesters across the street at Occupy ICE. The Happy Camper is run by Scott and Julie Hakes. They use the food cart to raise money for their non-profit organization, Operation Off The Grid, which helps the homeless around Portland. “It's our passion due to the fact that Julie and I were both homeless in our past,” said Scott. “We had always said that if we ever get to the point where we could give...

    The Daily Signal ^ | July 3, 2018 | Dennis Prager
    Because of the ever-descending moral and intellectual state of the mainstream news media, there has been no outcry against the leftists who call President Donald Trump and all Americans who support him Nazis. Indeed, members of the media now regularly do so. Without that outcry, this labeling will only increase; and this steadily increasing drumbeat of hysteria is likely to lead to one result: violence against conservatives. It is not plausible to foresee any other outcome of left-wing normalization of the terms “Nazi” and “white supremacist.” The American left has put itself in a moral quandary: Either it doesn’t mean...

    “A Florida man is really unhappy with the Trump administration’s immigration policies that have caused some kids to be temporarily separated from their parents after crossing the border illegally. And apparently, that means GOP Rep. Brian Mast’s three kids – a girl and two boys, all under the age of 8 – should die for it.” – Brittanny Hughes, Media Research Center A Floridian suspect was arrested by federal law enforcement after he allegedly threatened to kill war hero and U.S. Congressman Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL). The same suspect also threatened to kill the lawmaker’s three minor kids, the oldest...

    The political left in America has become utterly unhinged since the 2016 election of President Donald Trump, but rather than regroup and prepare to wrestle back political control in the next election cycle, they have descended further into a chaotic rage that is now bordering on mob violence. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was kicked out of a Virginia restaurant by a liberal owner simply because she works for Trump, and Democrat California Rep. Maxine Waters incited mobs of angry leftists to harass any Trump administration officials found out in public, two recent examples of the left’s increasingly hypocritical...

    Video at link (0:46). This is what passes for a professor these days. This is academia in the U.S., 2018. If Fresno State lets Jarrar go for her vile statements about Barbara Bush, maybe Stanford will be able to snatch her up, but there is certain to be a bidding war. Meanwhile, I don’t know if Jarrar meant me, or neo-Nazi Richard Spencer, or someone else when she calls for acts of terrorism against “Spencer” in this video. Maybe she has Richard and me completely mixed up, as do so many. Academics today aren’t much interested in making distinctions...

    Recently, I arrived at a moment of introspection about a curious aspect of my own behavior. When I disagree with a conservative friend or colleague on some political issue, I have no fear of speaking my mind. I talk, they listen, they respond, I talk some more, and at the end of it we get along just as we always have. But I’ve discovered that when a progressive friend says something with which I disagree or that I know to be incorrect, I’m hesitant to point it out. This hesitancy is a consequence of the different treatment one tends to...

  • Liberal Journalist Jokes That Professors Should Drown Conservative Students

    Jesse Farrar, formerly of Deadspin and Vice, tweeted that professors should instead "hold the conservative students heads under water until they stop breathing." Kirk responded: “I'm sure he is joking, but imagine if conservatives made a joke like that against liberals?” “I am not joking,” Farrar wrote back, later deleting the tweet. When contacted about the tweet, Deadspin's editor wrote that Farrar was joking and said the organization "supports his stance of trolling white supremacist-minded" groups. Kirk, the founder of Turning Point USA, said on "Fox & Friends" he was "stunned" at the comment by Farrar. "They disagree with us...
