TRADE WITH CHINA: China opened its gates to US beef imports this week, giving American cattle farmers much sought-after access to the country’s massive market following a 14-year ban…. Announced last month, the lifting of the beef embargo was one of the first concrete results of trade discussions that began when Chinese President Xi Jinping met with Donald Trump.

The Left’s Blame Game

When Democrat Gabby Gifford got shot, the Left blamed it on Republicans. Now that Republican Steve Scalise has been shot, the Left is blaming it on … Republicans.

DEMOCRATS It's always someone else's fault

From Newsbusters:

Thursday evening, CBS’s Scott Pelley, who officially ended his tenure as the network’s Evening News anchor the following evening, told viewers that “It’s time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress Wednesday was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted.”

It’s clear from Pelley’s subsequent commentary that his answers to all three elements are “Yes.” It’s equally clear from the examples he supplied as support that he sees (or wants viewers to see) the problem as predominantly about the conduct of those on the right.

It’s a Gray and Rainy Monday

Be still and know that I am

Continued prayers for Rep. Steve Scalise, whose condition has been upgraded to serious following additional surgery, and for his family, friends, and medical team. May God grant them strength and skill and peace. Amen.

Prayers for the sailors who lost their lives on the USS Fitzgerald and for their families and friends. May God have mercy on their souls and grant them peace. Amen.

We’ve witnessed a comedian holding up a severed ‘head’ of the President, and a Shakespeare play where Trump is assassinated instead of Caesar, then last week’s attempted massacre of GOP politicians. No matter, Senator Elizabeth Warren says: “Donald, you ain’t seen nasty yet.” Real classy, Senator Warren.

Today, President Donald J. Trump will host a working session with technology leaders in the private sector to develop creative solutions that will streamline government services. Modernizing government is an enormous undertaking and requires the best minds working in concert toward providing services that are effective and cost-efficient.

CNN Mislabels Unity Moment Of Prayer At Congressional Baseball Game As “Democrats Praying”

THE RADIO ON FRIDAY MORNING DESCRIBED IT AS A MOMENT OF BIPARTISANSHIP. HE ALSO ADDED IT WAS UNCLEAR HOW LONG IT WOULD LAST. THAT’S EASY — IT NEVER EXISTED. DEMOCRATS’ KNEELING WAS STRICTLY FOR SHOW.


Democratic Staffers Booed Trump At ‘Unity’ Congressional Baseball Game

So much for defanging the poisonous debate in Washington.

Dozens of congressional staffers erupted into boos, jeers and even vulgar gesticulations Thursday when President Trump appeared in a video at the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park.

Mr. Trump delivered a message of unity, but some fans in the stands weren’t having any of it.

FROM DIOGENES:
Okay, Now That’s Just Downright Offensive!

I know it was just a short three hour phony show of unity by democrats solely for media purposes, but seeing this lying leftist bag of bones wearing LSU Colors is disgusting. Not only a slap in the face to an Historic Southern University, but to the best sports conference in the country, The SEC. Whoever’s idea it was to hand her that shirt needs a good kneecapping! Yeah, I said it!

President Trump’s Statement on Shooting

As you all know, shortly after 7:00 a.m. this morning, a gunman opened fire on members of Congress and their staffs as they were practicing for tomorrow’s annual charity baseball game.

Authorities are continuing to investigate the crime, and the assailant has now died from his injuries. The FBI is leading the investigation and will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available.

Congressman Steve Scalise, a member of House leadership, was shot and badly wounded, and is now in stable condition at the hospital, along with two very courageous Capitol Police officers. At least two others were also wounded.

Many lives would have been lost if not for the heroic actions of the two Capitol Police officers who took down the gunman despite sustaining gunshot wounds during a very, very brutal assault.

Melania and I are grateful for their heroism and praying for the swift recovery of all victims.

Congressman Scalise is a friend, and a very good friend. He’s a patriot and he’s a fighter. He will recover from this assault. And, Steve, I want you to know that you have the prayers not only of the entire city behind you, but of an entire nation and, frankly, the entire world. America is praying for you and America is praying for all of the victims of this terrible shooting.

I spoke with Steve’s wife, Jennifer, and I pledged to her our full and absolute support — anything she needs. We are with her and with the entire Scalise family.

I have also spoken with Chief Matthew Verderosa — he’s doing a fantastic job — of the Capitol Police to express our sympathies for his wounded officers and to express my admiration for their courage. Our brave Capitol Police perform a challenging job with incredible skill, and their sacrifice makes democracy possible.

We also commend the brave first responders from Alexandria Police, Fire and Rescue who rushed to the scene. Everyone on that field is a public servant — our courageous police, our congressional aides who work so tirelessly behind the scenes with enormous devotion, and our dedicated members of Congress who represent our people.

We may have our differences, but we do well, in times like these, to remember that everyone who serves in our nation’s capital is here because, above all, they love our country.

We can all agree that we are blessed to be Americans, that our children deserve to grow up in a nation of safety and peace, and that we are strongest when we are unified and when we work together for the common good.

Please take a moment today to cherish those you love, and always remember those who serve and keep us safe. God bless them all, God bless you, and God Bless America. Thank you.

The Path We’re On

The difference between humans and wild animals is the capacity for reasoned thought. Apparently the left has largely lost that ability. The dichotomy between political parties today could not be more stark. I work with a piece of human sludge, a high school dropout. He’s rude, loud, pushy, and cannot finish a sentence without dropping the “F” bomb at least once. He makes sure everyone knows what he’s thinking and doesn’t want to hear what anyone else thinks. Fittingly he came in today and was not unhappy with yesterday’s attempted assassination. “F*** the republicans!”

This is the enemy we face. It is no longer possible to have a differing opinion from these domestic terrorists without personal risk. It is not beyond the realm of possibility that those of us who are the constant victims of the socialist assaults from all quarters will one day rise up and say “enough is enough.” There are 66 million people who voted for Trump who watch what transpires every day and are willing to fight back. Until then the wild animals will seek out the weak to prey on, egged on by a complicit media who profit from the Soros-funded chaos.

Wash Times: First Shots Of Second American Civil War Have Been Fired

Since the election of 2016, the left has gone crazy. Their version of the Tea Party is called “Resistance” and the spearhead of that is a loosely formed terrorist group called “Antifa.” Antifa is short for Anti-Fascist. The irony of their name is not lost on those who actually know history, as their tactics are straight from the fascist playbook.

In the last few months, these groups have repeatedly disrupted peaceful pro-Trump rallies. They have called for and used violence against people who support the president, disagree with them and even against members of the media who will report things Antifa doesn’t want reported.

BERNIE SANDERS CONDEMNED YESTERDAYS SHOOTING BY ONE OF HIS ACOLYTES. HE THINKS WE HAVE FORGOTTEN THIS.

Sanders Fundraised in 2011 by Falsely Blaming Sarah Palin for Tucson Shooting

“Congresswoman Giffords publicly expressed concerns when Sarah Palin, on her website, placed her district in the cross-hairs of a rifle—and identified her by name below the image—as an encouragement to Palin supporters to eliminate her from Congress,” the Vermont senator wrote.

Sanders was hardly alone in blaming Palin at the time; the New York Times, the Atlantic, the New York Daily News, and Gawker all pointed to the map with the crosshairs.

Unhinged Rhetoric About ‘Nazis’ and Trump Derangement Syndrome Lead to Bloodshed

Well, it finally happened. We’ve been saying for months now that the breathless false narrative created by the media about Trump supporters was going to lead unstable people to do bad things. We’ve seen it in Berkeley, where masked Antifa thugs attacked “Nazis” (or anyone in a Trump hat). Then there was Kathy Griffin’s disgusting mock beheading of President Trump, where she put the Left’s violent fantasies on display, followed up very shortly with Shakespeare in the Park featuring the stabbing assassination of Donald Trump to wild applause and standing ovations. These people are sick in the head.

NYT Uses GOP Shooting To Falsely Attack Sarah Palin With Debunked Conspiracy Theory

“In 2011, when Jared Lee Loughner opened fire in a supermarket parking lot, grievously wounding Representative Gabby Giffords and killing six people, including a 9-year-old girl, the link to political incitement was clear.”

They added later: “Though there’s no sign of incitement as direct as in the Giffords attack, liberals should of course hold themselves to the same standard of decency that they ask of the right.”

Republican receives threat after shooting, warning “one down, 216 to go…”


The lawmaker, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-New York, received an email with the subject line: “One down, 216 to go…,” according to a screenshot of the email provided by Tenney’s office.

The body of the email read: “Do you NOT expect this? When you take away ordinary peoples very lives in order to pay off the wealthiest among us, your own lives are forfeit. Certainly, your souls and morality were lost long before. Good riddance.” A threat was sent to Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-New York on June 14, 2017 after the shooting in Alexandria.

On Tenney’s official Facebook page, someone recently also posted a threatening comment aimed at her son, an active duty U.S. Marine currently deployed to the Middle East. The Memorial Day post said, “Waiting on your son to come back bagged,” according to a screenshot provided by Tenney’s office.

So Much for Civility: Matthews Smears Trump and ‘Weaselly’ Cabinet After Shooting

“Good evening. I’m Chris Matthews in Washington. Donald Trump and his ties with Moscow remain the big story here even on a day struck by violence,” he announced as he started his show.

Matthews was quite giddy as he read from a Washington Post article that claimed an anonymous source told them that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was now investigating Trump for obstruction of Justice. He then demonstrated how amazingly tone deaf he was by callously declaring that Mueller had Trump “in the crosshairs.”

A few minutes later, Mathews went on a diatribe about how much the President was used to controlling everything in his life, including poking at Trump’s marriage:

MATTHEWS: And they’re not weasels, these guys. These are men—particularly they are men in this case who have proud careers behind them, and they’d like to have proud legacies. They’re not like the weaselly people running around that table with him in that cabinet room the other day.

Flashback: Loretta Lynch Calls For ‘Blood and Death’ in the Streets

As TGP reported back in March, former US Attorney General Loretta Lynch released a disturbing video calling for marching, blood and even death.

Lynch worked for President Obama and is most known for not investigating the Clinton Foundation and for meeting former President Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac in June 2016 while his wife, Hillary Clinton, was being investigated for illegal email abuses while she was Obama’s Secretary of State

HuffPo Pulls Article Calling For ‘Ultimate Punishment’ Of Trump

Fuller’s piece contained rhetoric and imagery that seems tasteless, particularly after Wednesday’s events. Fuller boldly declares in the title that “Trump must be prosecuted — if convicted in a court of law — executed.” Fuller doesn’t stop there, however, as he insists that “impeachment isn’t enough” to “drain the swamp,” and to do so means doling out the “ultimate punishment [execution]” in order to fully restore the moral compass of the U.S.

Another Left-Winger Commits Politically Motivated Shooting

Early this morning, James T. Hodgkinson asked Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., if the guys practicing for the annual Congressional Baseball Game were Republicans or Democrats. DeSantis said they were Republicans.

About 3 minutes later, at around 7:15 a.m., Hodgkinson opened fire on the ball players, injuring five before House Majority Whip Steve Scalise’s security detail took him out.

Scalise is reported to be out of surgery and in stable condition. I haven’t heard about the others. But Hodgkinson, 66, has died from the ventilating the armed guards gave him.

Hodgkinson’s social media accounts show him to have been an enthusiastic fan of Bernie Sanders’ campaign and a vitriolic hater of Donald Trump.

2016_04 17 Hodgkinson pro-Sanders tweet

2017_06 12 Hodgkinson anti-Trump tweet

I’m not going to hold my breath waiting on any Democrats or their Left Stream Media apologists to ponder how much their non-stop hatred of Republicans in general and Donald Trump in particular contributed to this man’s decision to fire on unarmed ball players.

I do, however, want to point out that just this past week-end, a theater group in NYC put on a production of Julius Caesar in which Caesar, who is assassinated, is depicted as being President Trump. And some years ago, some Leftist jerks made a movie in which George W. Bush was assassinated.

They call that crap “art.”  But back when Barack Obama was in office, a rodeo clown was berated nationally and lost his job for making FUN of the thin-skinned Democratic president.

All y’all probably remember after the Gifford shooting when the Left was all over Sarah Palin for “inciting violence” because she had opposed Gifford’s re-election.

THAT got a lot of media coverage, as did the usual, endless stream of demands for more gun control laws.

What you may not remember from all the media outcry is that Gabby Gifford was an enthusiastic gun owner whose shooter turned out to have been a Left-winger who had volunteered on her campaign.

Another thing you probably never heard about is that, a few months ago in my home town, a Leftist shot and killed a UPS driver who he said he thought was Donald Trump. Can you imagine the national coverage if he had shot a woman and said it was because he thought she was Hillary Clinton.

But Trump? Meh. ::mediacrickets::

I think there are two not-very-original lessons we can take away from this:

  • One, the Left never learns anything from their numerous failed attempts to blame Right-wingers for political violence.
  • Two, the Left never EVER takes responsibility for the injuries and death that result from their own hate-filled calls to violence.

Hatred Taken to a New Height

It is difficult to fathom how far the left will go to express their complete hatred for anything or anyone who doesn’t agree with them. This is probably the most appalling act I’ve read about in modern history.

Go to baseball practice….GET SHOT!

Gunman Asks If GOP, Then Shoots 5, Including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, Aides…UPDATE: Rand Paul Said Had Scalise Security Detail Not Been There, Would Have Been Massacre

Crazy and they’re saying “attack appears to be deliberate.” You think?

Five people including the House Majority Whip Steve Scalise were shot at a GOP baseball practice on Wednesday morning.

Scalise was shot in the hip by the gunman who fired between 50 and 100 rounds from his rifle before being brought down by one of the security agents on scene.

Florida Rep. Ron DeSantis said the shooter asked the group of they were Republican or Democrat before opening fire.

THIS IS HOW THE U.K. TELEGRAPH DESCRIBES IT. HOW LONG DID IT TAKE TO MENTION THE SHOOTERS’ RACE?

Shameful: Journalists Immediately Politicize Congressional Shooting With Gun Control Calls

Minutes after Representative Steve Scalise and several congressional aides on Wednesday were shot while practicing for a baseball game, journalists on MSNBC and Twitter immediately politicized the attempted massacre, offering calls for gun control.

Although MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle admitted “we don’t know what type of gun” was used, she speculated, “How difficult is it to get a weapon like this?” MSNBC security expert Clint Wattas replied, “It’s not difficult at all…. We have very loose gun laws around rifles, semiautomatic rifles, whatever it might be.”


Shooter identified as James Hodgkinson. His social media amounts to extended screed against Trump.
