‘He Is in Some Trouble.’ Is Trump Talking about Shot Rep. Scalise or Himself?

PRESIDENT TRUMP AND REP. STEVE SCALISE It has been reported today that President Donald Trump suggested Thursday that Rep. Steve Scalise is in worse condition than many initially realized the day after he was shot at a congressional baseball practice. Speaking from the White House, Trump called the Louisiana congressman a “greater fighter” but indicated the situation remains very serious. Scalise, along with another victim, remains in critical condition. “It’s been much more difficult than people even thought at that time,” Trump said of Scalise. “He’s in some trouble.” What a coincidence, as Trump himself appears to be ‘in...

Congress Seems to Think That Before Yesterday, No One Was Ever Shot at in America

THE 26 MURDERED SANDY HOOK SHOOTING VICTIMS Enough of the wall-to-wall media coverage–and the eagerness of Members of Congress to enable it by getting in front of the cameras–of yesterday’s shooting aimed at Congressional Republicans practicing for a softball game. May we remind everyone: NO ONE WAS KILLED. Oh, but yes, even though Congress is elected by the people to represent the ‘actual’ people, it has become quite clear that the members of Congress, on both sides of the aisle, seem to think their lives are worth more than ours. Watching members like Rep. Joe Barton tear up all...

Softball Game Will Go On Because Congress Wants To Show Lack of Fear, As They Are Surrounded By Secret Service

MEMBER OF CONGRESS SURROUNDED BY CAPITOL POLICE Oh, please, the members of Congress insist they will play tomorrow’s softball game, even in the face of today’s shooting (that didn’t kill one victim). But realize, the secret service will be all over the place. I hardly think you or I would get such protection, even after our own families may have been murdered in a mass shooting. Wake up Congress and WAKE UP AMERICA and hold these self-serving demagogues responsible for our safety, not just...

Should Congress Be Better Protected? No, The People They Represent Should Be.

Now, after today’s shooting during a Congressional softball game–where no one was killed–a question is being raised: Should members of Congress be given a higher level of security detail? No, they should for once do their jobs and make America safer, not just their little self-indulgent, self-serving worlds. Get to work Congress and start finally worrying about those who voted for you, not just...

Stop Your Whining Rep. Barton, and Finally Do Something about Mass Shootings

It is quite sickening to see Representative Barton who did nothing after Sandy Hook–when 20 children were murdered in their school–on cable news all day long whining and tearing up after this morning’s attack on Congressional members, all of whom survived. He is supposed to represent the people, but after today, it is clear Barton, and most others in Congress, represent only their...

Pro-Gun Congressman Wipes Away a Tear as He Describes Shooting Where No One Died

Rep. Joe Barton (R-Tex.), who coaches the team, walked back into the U.S. Capitol at 9:45 a.m. “We had a shooter come out to practice,” he said, his voice and body shaking as he described the scene. “He started shooting. He shot at Trent Kelly, our third baseman, he shot at Steve Scalise, our second baseman. He hit Steve Scalise. Scalise’s security detail and Capitol Hill Police immediately began to return fire.” It is understandable that Barton would be shaken up, but as he was being interviewed on MSNBC, he had to pause several times, as if about to...

Trump Doesn’t Care That Russia Hacked Our Election Because He Won

In case you missed it, here is how Trump reacted to his notion that the voting was rigged during the presidential primary (start video at 50 sec. for key portion): That’s right, he doesn’t care if the election was rigged because he won. Wow, how is that for the ‘leader’ of the free world? But it gets even worse now that Trump is the president. It has been well-known that Russia hacked our election, but today it was revealed that such hacking went deeper than ever thought, as reported by Bloomberg: “A new report indicates that Russia’s efforts to...
