The Left’s violent rhetoric has claimed another victim, as a gunman opened fire at a practice for the Congressional Baseball Game in Alexandria, VA this morning. The attack injured at least three, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise.
“Are they Republicans or Democrats?” The gunman supposedly asked Representative Jeff Duncan before opening fire. Clearly, he got the answer he desired as he then shot between 50 and 100 times, according to sources on the scene. Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), also confirmed that he was asked that question — see the Fox News video below.

Celebrities like Kathy Griffin, who did a photo shoot holding a mock severed head of President Trump, and the Public Theater, which staged a version of “Julius Caesar” that assassinated Trump, have been encouraging violence among those who may not agree with their lawmakers. Her prominent position has no doubt encouraged those who may have violent tendencies to act on them and join the “resistance” against Trump that the Left is trying to build.
Do you think depictions killing Trump or Republicans are free speech or unacceptable threats? Vote in our Kathy Griffin poll HERE
Another thing, the Republican congress lead by Newt Gingrinch left us with a surplus. Clinton just signed off on the budget, but at least they worked together back then. Delusional thinking is dangerous to our Republic!

Really, Ron. You have to go back to the 1960’s to pull Nixon from the Republican party as a liar. Nixon is not my hero. Reagan built up our military. Obama took us back down to pre-World War II levels when we face more enemies today than ever just to pay for his immigrant and welfare programs to acquire more voters for the Democratic party. Bill Clinton is a liar, thief, adulterer, cheater, and disgusting human being. If he does not repent, he will surely pay for his behavior in the after life. For you to say that you would rather have a disgusting human being running your country, means that you are have the same character. SHAMEFUL!!!!
The polls in 2016 were totally skewed in the direction of the Demoncrats! These too were false. The liberals who took these polls had about 300 more Democrats than any other demographic in their questioning. Rasmuusen had Trump ahead the whole time and, oh, guess who was right? I want absolute proof that Russia so-called changed one vote. You cannot provide this information with 100% accuracy because it did not happen. The CIA is actually capable of pretending to be a foreign entity to hack any computer system. I am not convinced that this whole Russia B.S. was not calculated from the beginning.
Now, I will address your despicable Pro-lifer comments. I am not just a pro-lifer, I am an non-murderer. They rip these precious babies from the mother’s womb and sell their body parts or incinerate them. If you are ok with this, you have some serious morality issues.
As far as taking in the refugees, I have over the years taken in many homeless people and helped them get back on their feet. I try very hard to pattern my life after Jesus and his teachings. I live very simply even though I do not have to. Even Jesus did not surround himself with the Romans and Pharisees, who were taking advantage of their people. We need to know who these people are coming into our country. To have wide open borders, when every other country does not, is insane. Many Americans have been injured or killed because of these policies. If I did not work 12 hour days, I would adopt many children or foster them. However, the issue here starts with being raised properly. We need to teach people to take precautions from getting pregnant in the first place if they cannot take care of them properly. I raised my three children correctly. They are all amazing. I love them because they are precious gifts from GOD. To say “unwanted children” to me seems like such a contradictory term. I do get that there are evil people who should not have children and do not understand how precious they are.
You are lying and making up fake facts about Trump and his daughter so I don’t care if you are independent, your post has proven what type of person you are. You may want to think about this!

The Democrats I see no better than fascists! Traitors to our Country! Love President Trump and his selection of his cabinet members! Love Vice President Pence, He was my Govenor ! Go Trump! Kokomo, INDIANA ! Cheryl McHale

Good points Ron.
Russia might have “jacked” the election in terms of election data in addition to hacking Hillarys email and DNC, jerry meandering was a factor as well, we will hopefully find out if Trump was involved. If so it’s beyond troubling.
Good point election polls have never been that wrong so it makes one wonder. Trump is now under criminal investigation. If , big if, evidence is found that Trump cheated in the election will Trumps supporters continue to support and deny facts? I wonder.
June 15, 2017,7:27 pm
Like Nixon? Super moral. Or Reagan with Nicaragua? Reagan was a good man but he left us in debt, Bill Clinton was a scoundrel and left us in a surplus. I’d rather have a womanizer leave us in surplus.
I’m an independent.
Yep the Dems really screwed up 2016 with leaking debate questions (cheating) and forcing Bernie out. Idiotic moves.
And Russia hacked the election and election data FOR Trump, that has finally been stated by The republican party but not yet condemned or investigated appropriately. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2017/06/15/politics/russia-hacking-election/index.html
All the polls showed Trump losing , his win might have been Russian related, still to be proven.
Trump asked Russia to hack Hillary’s emails during the election that is not OK , even as a joke. That is a treasonous act. Putting our enemy over an American? Poor judgement at minimum.
I would like to say if you feel abortion is a sin then don’t get one but I know it’s not as clear-cut as that . But I’m hoping if you feel abortion is murder that you are also against capital punishment if only God can take a life .
And For all those people who feel a Democrate needs to house a refugee I feel every prolifer needs to adopt a baby. Pro life also means you are willing to and supportive of helping care for unwanted children – food clothing shelter healthcare , otherwise you’re just a pro birther. Low income teens have babies, this is a large majority of welfare.
And I’m fairly certain Jesus would take in a refugee.
People in power are typically corrupt , Sad but true and I don’t think Trump is any different . He might not be taking a salary but he is certainly getting paid every time he goes to Mara Largo and spends thousands of dollars of our money on golf carts , food and lodging . All in his pocket.
Ivanka received 100 Million from Saudi Arabia for her charity after Trump signed the arms deal, sounds like the Clinton foundation doesn’t it? She also received several trademark approvals for her clothing from China the day she met with china leaders .
They all abuse power. Except maybe President Carter, he was just a nice guy.
If we raised our glasses to every nice man/woman in politics ….we’d never be drunk.

This is not about religion alone. It is about moral integrity. People who lie, steal, cheat, and try to jack an election because they are sore losers need to be called out on their atrocious behavior. There are so many liars at the top of this party. They also believe in murder of an unborn child through abortion, which is not just against GOD’s commandments but the law. We will speak the truth until people wake up and realize what is happening in the country right now. Honesty is the most important character trait that a person can exhibit. If you want your party to be known as something else, elect different officials to lead your party.
June 15, 2017,2:40 pm
The truth is This country’s constitution is about freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom to protest etc.
don’t push your religious values on others. Respect the religions that aren’t yours as well. That is part of the freedoms we enjoy in this country. Different political views does not equal evil. Evil actions to others equals evil. You use the term rather lightly. Don’t hate your fellow man for excercising their freedoms. Freedom to not like the president , like so many they did not like Obama, it was their right to protest and speak up . Some did it in an evil way just like some are doing it in an evil way today about Trump . Which is not nice, but it’s a right. People had signs about lynching Obama which is not only a death threat it is racist . When we silence the voice of the people then we have something to fear . There is evil on both sides . People in both parties cross the line of respect integrity and morals. When we make monsters of the other side as a prejudice that’s when it becomes dangerous . For example Hitler did that with the Jews . Not all republicans are bad not all Democrates are bad. Just like not all Teenagers are rebels and not all elderly people are senile.
Just because someone has a different view from you does not make you rightious and them evil. But you can excercise you right to vote , protest and speak up . Your version of the truth is based on your beliefs and experience, not everyone has your same belief and experience . The United States on our worst day is still better than living in any other country . We need to pull together not pull apart .
I may or may not agree with your political views but I respect your right to have them . And I will treat you respectfully . That’s all you need to do with each other be respectful. Respectfully disagree if we need to . Not tear each other apart. I would never want to change your political views or your religious views, but I would like to change your view of your fellow man who might not agree with your views. Disagreement does not equal evil .

SPEAK UP AMERICA! There is no hate involved in telling the absolute truth. You must call out demonstrative deception. The Democratic party are the party of wild deception and evil on this earth. SPEAK UP! Do not let your voice be silenced. GOD would expect you to fight for CHRISTIAN VALUES! THERE IS NO HATE IN THE TRUTH!!!!!!!

Tragic. Plain tragic.
Bill, This website (CBC) itself is devisive and plays to haters. It encourages the reader to hate Democrates. I’m an independent and belong to a liberal site too.
I have noticed by and large that the liberal site I visit does not speak nearly as hateful towards/about republicans as people on this site speak about Democrates.
People who have no desire to understand each other, just label and hate are not helping to heal this country.
June 14, 2017,10:28 pm
Well said Bill.
I’m sick of reading posts on this site from people ( especially those who claim to be Christian ) talk of hate for anyone regardless of party or race. Like they don’t have liberal or Democratic friends and family that are loving people in their lives. Sheeesh. They are the issue.
Hate leads nowhere productive. They spend all day hating and demeaning the other party. I can’t stand Democrates that think Republicans are evil and I can’t stand Republicans that think Democrates are evil. That is just wrong.
And yes plenty of Republicans have committed acts of violence against Liberals, so one side isn’t all innocent by any means. Gabby Gifford was a Democrate shot by a far right person.
June 14, 2017,10:17 pm
Violence is not the solution whether inspired by the right or the left.
Do not comfort yourselves by thinking this only happens when someone is inflamed from the left. Don’t forget about the right-wing biogot in Portland who knifed three men trying to stop him from harassing a teenager wearing a headscarf.
June 14, 2017,5:21 pm
Prayers for all those injured and for our First Responders.
This is exactly what the left and their nazi media propaganda have caused and they need to be held responsible.

PREVIOUS ARTICLENEXT ARTICLE
HERE Is WHAT WILL HAPPEN If The DEEP STATE TAKES DOWN PRESIDENT TRUMP & It’s NOT PRETTY … FOR THEM “The tree of liberty must be refreshed with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” – Thomas Jefferson ELDER PATRIOT – Corrupt politicians ignore Jefferson’s directive to their own detriment. It’s no longer political, it’s personal. Americans have had their eyes opened by the ascension of Donald Trump and no amount of leftwing money can put the Freedom Movement genie back in the bottle. Conservative Senator Ted Cruz made that observation after reviewing the results of the 2016 elections and the expectations of the voters. Cruz, who had the most high profile personality clash with Donald Trump during the Republican primary process nevertheless embraced Trump’s America First agenda and said, “If we’re given the White House and both houses of Congress and we don’t deliver, I think there will be pitchforks and torches in the streets. And I think quite rightly.” Candidate Trump promised many things – border control, lower taxes, fairer trade relations, a balanced budget, healthcare that puts the people first not the government, safer communities, and – to the extent possible – an end to foreign wars. What, among those promises, should any Republican, nay any American, have a problem with? After four months without a single legislative achievement, Congressional and Senatorial Republicans – notably John McCain, Paul Ryan and Lindsey Graham – have joined the Democrats in investigating President Trump absent a single shred of evidence that an underlying crime has been committed. So, what gives? Well, there was one additional promise that Trump made on his way to the White House that has some Republicans joining with Democrats and quaking in their boots, Trump’s promise to “Drain the Swamp.” As we reported yesterday, “An F.B.I. agent with ‘intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the Clinton case’ told us that they uncovered evidence of such massive corruption that the agents involved realized that damned near the entire government could be brought down.” The criminal co-conspirators in both parties realized almost immediately that the new sheriff wasn’t interested in joining them in the swamp so they launched, what can only be characterized as, a coup attempt. Democrats are well schooled in such things probably because of their close alliance with Marxist regimes that can only gain power by seizing it through bloody civil wars. It should be noted that the Democratic Party has already done this once before. One Hundred and Fifty-Seven years ago the Democrats waged a war against the First Republican President Abraham Lincoln for giving Blacks their freedom. That war came at a high price, as many as 700,000 Americans died fighting for what they believe in. To put that in perspective, these casualties exceed the nation’s loss in all its other wars, from the Revolution through Vietnam. Today, Americans are still prepared to fight and die to protect their children’s God-given freedoms. Despite what you are reading and hearing in the mainstream media, they aren’t the leftwing-funded rioters, the pussy hat-wearing feminists, or the cuck bois that cant handle a micro aggression. No, the Americans that back Donald Trump are well armed. Donald Trump’s presidency will move forward politically lest the sixty million patriots who voted for him, that are comprised of the large majority of military voters, police, and NRA members, move it forward by force. These patriots are armed, trained, prepared, and have proven their discipline. They have grown disgusted by the corruption in Washington and will do whatever is necessary to make sure Trump’s Freedom Agenda moves forward and under the direction of Donald Trump himself. No amount of fake news based on unsubstantiated charges by unnamed sources is going to change that. The battle lines have been drawn and no amount of finger pointing is going to convince these patriots to let anyone overturn the election results. So why are establishment politicians courting a bloodbath on the streets of America that will also threaten them personally when they could be part of Making America Great Again? It’s because they have been caught red-handed and up to their eyeballs in a worldwide criminal conspiracy that has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with defrauding the American taxpayers. And, now that they’ve been caught robbing the world’s largest bank – the U.S. treasury – they have chosen to go out in a blaze of glory rather than try to defend the indefensible at trial. Washington’s criminal elites have chosen to go to war to unseat our duly elected president. It’s time to make our voices heard before this turns very ugly. Buckle your chin strap, America is counting on you. EDITORS NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CALL TO ARMS BUT RATHER AN ANALYSIS OF WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THE DEEP STATES OVERTURNS A DUELY ELECTED PRESIDENT. HERE IS A LIST OF EVERY SINGLE TIME OBAMA COMMITTED AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE THAT DEMS & MEDIA COVERED UP “Impeach!” It’s been more than eight years since Democrats uttered that word – long enough for anyone to wonder if it was still in their vocabulary, considering the deafening silence through the dozens of serious scandals during President Obama’s administration – but now that President Trump is the man in the White House, it’s back with a vengeance. Democrats everywhere are wildly slinging the “I” word, hoping to nail Trump for high crimes and misdemeanors after the New York Times claimed a memo written by former FBI Director James Comey said the president urged him to end the federal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Some members of Congress are getting in on the action. They include Reps. Maxine Water, D-Calif., and Al Green, D-Texas. Even a Republican, Rep. Justin Amash, claimed Wednesday there are grounds to impeach President Trump. House Oversign Committee Chair Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, asked for the alleged Comey memo and other documents. Chaffetz tweeted that he is prepared to subpoena the information. And Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., invoked “Watergate.” Now the Democratic Party is reportedly poll testing impeachment as a 2018 election issue. More than 1 million people signed a petition calling on Congress to impeach Trump. Wasting no time Wednesday, the mainstream media sprang into action, enthusiastically echoing the left’s impeachment calls. MSNBC launched a Watergate ad implying Trump is America’s new Richard Nixon. “Watergate. We know its name because there were reporters who never stopped asking questions,” says MSNBC host Chris Hayes, who hinted that Trump is next on the impeachment chopping block. “Now, who knows where the questions will take us. But I know this: I’m not going to stop asking them.” Meanwhile, some overzealous members of the left plastered fliers around Washington, D.C., demanding all White House staffers resign Wednesday. The posters read: “If you work for this White House you are complicit in hate-mongering, lies, corrupt taking of Americans’ tax money via self-dealing and emoluments, and quite possibly federal crimes and treason. Also, any wars will be on your soul. … Resign now.” But constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley, who voted for President Obama, warned “impeachment” enthusiasts not to get ahead of themselves with President Trump. Why? At this time, there’s no evidence Trump actually committed a crime. “The criminal code demands more than what Comey reportedly describes in his memo,” Turley wrote in a May 17 opinion piece posted at the Hill. Turley explained: For the first time, the Comey memo pushes the litany of controversies surrounding Trump into the scope of the United States criminal code. However, if this is food for obstruction of justice, it is still an awfully thin soup. Some commentators seem to be alleging criminal conduct in office or calling for impeachment before Trump completed the words of his inaugural oath of office. Not surprising, within minutes of the New York Times report, the response was a chorus of breathless “gotcha” announcements. But this memo is neither the Pentagon Papers nor the Watergate tapes. Indeed, it raises as many questions for Comey as it does Trump in terms of the alleged underlying conduct. A good place to start would be with the federal law, specifically 18 U.S.C. 1503. The criminal code demands more than what Comey reportedly describes in his memo. There are dozens of different variations of obstruction charges ranging from threatening witnesses to influencing jurors. None would fit this case. That leaves the omnibus provision on attempts to interfere with the “due administration of justice.” However, that still leaves the need to show that the effort was to influence “corruptly” when Trump could say that he did little but express concern for a longtime associate. The term “corruptly” is actually defined differently under the various obstruction provisions, but it often involves a showing that someone acted “with the intent to secure an unlawful benefit for oneself or another.” Encouraging leniency or advocating for an associate is improper but not necessarily seeking an unlawful benefit for him. .

Ever since he took America by storm in the 2016 election, Pres. Trump has attracted controversy and attention in equal measure. Now conservative readers can go behind the scenes of his White House and his winning campaign — check out our CBC Reading Roundup to find out more!
“Within the first eleven months, we canceled or delayed over 1,500 planned regulatory actions, more than any previous president. Instead of eliminating two old regulations for every one new regulation, we have eliminated 22! We aimed for 2 for 1, and in 2017, we hit 22-1.”
“I promised we would pass a massive tax cut for the everyday, working American families who are the backbone and the heartbeat of our country…. We want to give you, the American people, a giant tax cut for Christmas. And when I say giant, I mean giant.”
