    House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler’s (D-N.Y.) decision not to allow him to testify during a hearing on gun violence Wednesday may have helped amplify his message on the subject. Scalise — who sustained life-threatening injuries after being shot during practice for the congressional baseball game in 2017 — alleged by not allowing him to testify, Nadler “broke from tradition” by denying “a member who had a relevant testimony to give.” But the Louisiana Republican said the media attention gained from the incident provided him with a wider platform to discuss his view....

    House Democrats blocked Republican Whip Steve Scalise from testifying at a hearing on "gun violence" this week despite being a victim of a shooting. The reason? He doesn't support new gun control measures Democrats are hoping to pass with their new majority. "It was pretty bizarre. Historically when Republicans were in charge, even when Democrats were in charge prior to this more radical leftist majority, if a member of Congress wanted to testify on a committee, they always provided a venue for that to happen," Scalise said. "In this case they were holding a hearing in the Judiciary on reducing...

    Chaos briefly broke out on the floor of the House Thursday as Republicans accused Democrats of trying to pull a fast one with a hasty vote to end the partial shutdown. The drama began in the afternoon when the Democratic-controlled House held a voice vote on an interim spending bill to re-open the government through February 28. Customarily, after a voice vote is held, the opposition party will demand a recorded roll call vote. But when no one was heard, North Carolina Rep. G.K. Butterfield, who was presiding over the House, did not hold a roll call vote and instead...

    Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) on Monday night said that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) "shouldn't condone" her supporters who brought up the 2017 shooting that seriously injured the minority whip in order to berate him online. "She oughta own up and just say, 'Look this isn’t something that I condone,'" Scalise said on Fox News's "Hannity." "She doesn’t … own this herself directly, but she shouldn’t condone it either." Scalise and Ocasio-Cortez briefly sparred on Twitter over the weekend over the freshman New York lawmaker's call for a 70 percent tax rate on Americans making more than $10 million. Scalise ended...

    On Twitter last night, a battle emerged between Republican Congressman Steve Scalise and supporters of socialist Democratic Rep. Ocasio-Cortez. [The story is here.] Ocasio-Cortez wants to raise tax rates to 70 percent, to redistribute wealth from those who create and earn it to those who do not. She wants to take money out of the hands of private businesses who are responsible for earning and managing it and place it in the hands of the government. She says it’s “for the people” but it’s the government, not “the people”, who will decide what to do with it. It’s mob warfare...

    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...
