    When a Bernie Sanders supporter attempted to assassinate Republicans, the media were quick to disassociate a politician from his radical supporters President Trump is being roundly criticized by the media for failing to criticize one side over the other in the Charlottesville riots, even before the exact sequence of events is understood, such as who initiated the violence. The verdict in this case must precede the evidence. Let’s take a short trip down memory lane and recall how the media treated the attempted assassination of House Republicans by a Bernie Sanders supporter. James Hidgkinson, who had a prolific history of...
  • Capitol Police team responding to Steve Scalise shooting initially sent to wrong site

    WASHINGTON — The U.S. Capitol Police Department opened an internal investigation into why its elite tactical team was initially directed to respond to the wrong location when a gunman opened fire last month at a GOP congressional baseball practice, according to two people familiar with the matter. Instead of responding directly to the Virginia field where House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and several others were shot, members of the Capitol Police Containment and Emergency Response Team were signaled instead to go to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s house in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, several miles away,

    Associated Press ^ | Jul 15, 2017 12:57 PM EDT
    The New York Times has asked a judge to toss out a defamation lawsuit former Alaska governor Sarah Palin filed against it. The newspaper said in court papers late Friday that its prompt and full correction of an editorial that referenced Palin’s political action committee nullifies her claims. Palin sued the Times in Manhattan federal court last month, saying the newspaper had accused her of inciting the mass shooting that severely wounded then-Arizona U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords. She sought unspecified damages. …

    House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was released from ICU on Wednesday after nearly a week, Fox News confirmed. Scalise, R-La., has been treated at MedStar Washington Hospital since June 14, when he and four others were shot during a congressional baseball practice, and remains in “serious” condition at the facility. Scalise was returned to the ICU last week after contracting an infection from his gunshot wounds. Scalise, prior to going back to the ICU on July 5, was listed in “fair condition,” but the hospital downgraded that to “serious” last week after infection concerns and a subsequent surgery. According to...

    Toward the end Dave gets into the warning shot theory of Representative Scalise. Scalise introduced a bill to stop human/child trafficking. Dave believes that the shooting was meant as a warning to other congressmen to keep to themselves. He suspects there will be no more human/child trafficking legislation after the near death of Scalise. I found this interesting. I believe our children are starting to be hunted down by these Godless predators. Please pray for their destruction, and the dismantling of this industry and it's players. ( Please don't listen to this if this is not interesting to you or...

    House Majority Whip Steve Scalise is fighting an infection and is back in Intensive Care at the MedStar Washington Hospital.  Five people were injured last month when a gunman opened fire at a park in Alexandria, Virginia, and Scalise was the most seriously wounded. Shooter James T. Hodgkinson, who was killed by police, had been arrested for domestic battery and criminal charges against his foster children. He was reportedly anti-Trump and the Republican Party.   That does not matter at all to the WASHINGTON POST, as they could care less about the truth.  If we did not know before, we...

    The Washington Post struck out with many on social media over an article that appears to blame a right-wing Illinois shock jock for the Virginia shooting rampage by a Trump-hating, Bernie Sanders volunteer who targeted Republicans during a baseball practice. “What’s the point of this?" Buzz Feed political reporter Katherine Miller asked on Twitter. “The shooter hated Trump and there’s no indication in the story he listened to this pro-Trump host.” Washington Examiner political correspondent and Fox News contributor Byron York tweeted, “Revision of the year: WP suggests, without evidence, Alexandria shooter was inspired by right-wing bigoted radio talker.” “Devoted...

    BELLEVILLE, Ill. — It’s not yet 11 a.m., and Bob Romanik, sitting behind the microphone at his radio station in a rundown strip mall in the middle of America, already has said the “n-word” out loud — and on air — at least a dozen times. Romanik is a surly 68-year-old former East St. Louis street cop. He hates Black Lives Matter and talks proudly about his Caucasian heritage to anyone who will listen. And do they listen. His controversy-courting radio program — he’s the self-styled “Grim Reaper of Radio” on KQQZ 1190 AM — reaches across this region, in...

    Tennessee GOP Rep. Phil Roe said Tuesday that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise is out of bed and getting better after sustaining serious injuries from a gunshot to the hip. Scalise was one of five wounded at the Republicans’ congressional baseball practice June 14, and the last to remain in the hospital. He was released from the intensive care unit June 23 after undergoing multiple surgeries and blood transfusions. “[He’s] just out of bed,” Roe said in an interview with WJHL-TV, The Hill reports. “He’s had a very, very, serious injury. He’s not able to eat yet, but he is...

    A Hartford, Conn. sociology professor labeled white people "inhuman a**holes" and endorsed the idea that first responders should have let House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and others die on a Virginia baseball field because of their race, Campus Reform reported. Trinity College's Johnny Eric Williams posted the hashtag "LetThem[expletive]Die" below an emotional message on Facebook directed at white people. On his now-locked account he wrote, "It is past time for the racially oppressed to do what people who believe themselves to be 'white' will not do - put end to the vectors of their destructive mythology of whiteness and...

    Former Alaska Governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin filed a lawsuit against the New York Times Tuesday over an editorial that tied her to the January 2011 shooting of an Arizona congresswoman. Palin's attorneys claim that the paper defamed her in the June 14 editorial, published hours after House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., was shot and wounded while practicing with the GOP's baseball team in Alexandria, Va. The editorial, attributed to the Times' editorial board and titled "America's Lethal Politics," initially linked Palin's rhetoric to the shooting that killed six people and wounded 13 others, including then-Rep. Gabrielle...

    Civility: For a brief moment after Rep. Steve Scalise was nearly killed by a crazed Bernie Sanders supporter, some prominent liberals uttered a few words about "toning down the rhetoric." If that pledge was sincere at all, it barely lasted a week. Actor Johnny Depp took the prize last week, when at a film festival in England he asked, "Can we bring Trump here," and followed that by asking "When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?" The audience roared with cheers and laughter. Depp later "apologized," saying it was a "bad joke" that "did not come out...

    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 it’s 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 it’s one thing to disagree It's what America’s 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...

    Monday morning, Congressmen Steve Scalise and John Fleming—both Republicans representing districts in Louisiana—sent a letter signed by 59 Members of the U.S. House of Representatives to Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel at the Pentagon, demanding answers regarding Pentagon officials meeting with an anti-Christian extremist. This story began two weeks ago when Breitbart News reported on at least one such meeting. Since that time it has become a growing controversy, as Breitbart News reported additional disturbing details. Now Congress is weighing in. The Scalise-Fleming letter begins: It has come to our attention that as recently as April 23, 2013, Pentagon officials...
