In “Back in the Game: One Gunman, Countless Heroes, and the Fight for My Life,” the Louisiana Republican — who was gravely wounded by a lone gunman during a baseball practice last year — talks about his journey to recovery.

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) revealed a shocking detail the establishment media covered up about James Hodgkinson, the left-winger who attempted a mass murder at a Republican congressional baseball practice: according to Paul, the man who almost killed Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) and wounded four others was shouting, “This is for health care!” During an appearance this week on Fox & Friends, Paul said: I was there at the ballfield when Steven Scalise almost died from a very, very angry, violent man who was incited, really, by rhetoric on the left. And this hasn’t been reported enough: When he came on...

    This summer, California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters called on her supporters to harass cabinet officials. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that you “cannot be civil” with members of the Republican Party. And Wednesday, videotape was released of former Attorney General Eric Holder telling a Democratic audience at a campaign rally on Sunday that they should “kick” Republicans when they perceive them as “going low.” Despite the continued reports of politically motivated threats or violence, Democratic Party leaders have worked to keep this anger burning and incite even more harassment and violence. Beginning with my own near-death experience...

    After Carlos Bayon was arrested on a charge of menacing U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise in a voicemail message, authorities deemed the threat "credible" and described evidence seized at the suspect's upstate New York home as "very concerning." The U.S. attorney did not detail the evidence, but a new affidavit filed in federal court in Buffalo by the Capitol Police itemizes it. No guns were found in the search, yet special agent Lawrence Anyaso says investigators discovered: 150 rounds of 7.62-millimeter rifle ammunition 50 rounds of shotgun ammunition A 2004 receipt for an SKS assault rifle A 1987 receipt for a...

    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...

    PITTSBURGH -- Everyone wants to shake Steve Scalise's hand. A year ago, the Louisiana congressman was near second base at an early morning baseball practice when the sound of shots pierced the quiet of suburban DC. A bullet zigzagged through his left hip, slicing muscle tissue, crushing his femur and mangling his organs. Now, he is recognized by passersby as the man whose survival is nothing short of a miracle. As he walks down the hall of the Duquesne Club -- a handsome old-money institution where President Ulysses S. Grant was one of the first guests -- a man steps...

    Someone is going to get killed. We have gone beyond the severed presidential head held by the unfunny and untalented Kathy Griffin to mob action, including the physical harassment of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen who just days before was drummed out of a Mexican restaurant by left-wing activists protesting the separation of children from parents caught crossing the border illegally. Nielsen was also targeted by a leftist mob at her home: A cabal of protesters gathered outside Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s Virginia townhouse Friday morning, blasting audio of crying immigrant children and chanting “No justice, no sleep.” The...

    A liberal group is raising money to put up a billboard to “take out” Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), who survived being shot while practicing at a baseball field in Alexandria last June. The homepage of Mad Dog PAC’s website has a photo of the proposed billboard with a link asking site-goers for donations. The liberal group is the same organization behind a billboard with the message “IMPEACHMENT NOW” along the motorcade route to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

    Wednesday on Hugh Hewitt’s nationally syndicated radio show, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) warned Democrats would move to impeach President Donald Trump if they reassumed control of Congress after this year’s midterm elections. Hewitt asked Scalise about that possibility, calling it the “bottom line” of the 2018 campaign. “I think there’s no doubt they will, Hugh,” Scalise replied. “They’ve telegraphed a lot of that. Their base is so far radical to the left. Look, Nancy Pelosi yesterday, first of all, she said she’s running for speaker again, so you’ve got to just close your eyes and go back to...

    There's no denying Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise is a big LSU fan. If you doubt that, just check out the tricked-out Tigers scooter the House Whip uses after being injured in June's shooting at a Republican baseball team practice. Scalise's LSU allegiance didn't prevent University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban from asking him to be his guest at Saturday night's game between the Tide and the Tigers, with an invite hand-delivered by another Alabama Congressman. Rep. Gary Palmer, among the attendees at the baseball practice when the shooting broke out, hand-delivered the invitation from Coach Saban to Rep. Scalise,...

Scalise will address the Family Research Council’s annual Values Voter Summit on Oct. 13 in Washington, D.C. The FRC is an anti-abortion, anti-gay conservative group and lobbying organization. FRC’s President Tony Perkins wrote a memo about the upcoming appearance, referencing the June shooting at a Virginia baseball field where Scalise and other Republicans were practicing for an upcoming charity game. The congressman was shot in the hip. “There were times...

    House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said it's "overzealous" to call for a purge on GOP donors who haven't supported the administration's agenda. He was responding to a recent remark from Vice President Pence's chief of staff Nick Ayers. “Maybe he got a little overzealous," Scalise said on NBC News' "Meet the Press with Chuck Todd" in an interview set to air on Sunday. Scalise's comments come after Ayers said wealthy Republican donors should "purge" members of Congress who have not been supportive of President Trump's agenda.
