Congressional staffers boo
Trump at unity baseball game

Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan

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. One man shouted an expletive at the video screen as Mr. Trump was telling the fans: “We are showing the world we will not be intimidated by threats.” The episode marred what had been a night celebrating those wounded in Wednesday’s murderous attack on GOP players practicing for

Comments:
The radicalization of the dRATS party has truly taken place when there should have been a shared respect for the true tragedy that could have befallen our political system. Not only does this strike hard at our way of life by those who govern US, but must embolden our enemies worldwide to see US as weak. Beware, as war is coming, beyond this psychological one by the dRATS.

One of my, uh, acquaintances was spouting about how the shooting cried out for more gun control. I told him it cried out for more rudeness control but he didn´t get it.

I would have been shocked if they didn´t boo. The dims are the scum of the earth. Disgusting heinous slime. Every last one of them. Biggest threat to America? Dims. Every single problem this country has has either been caused by, or made worse by the Dims. Oh, and I am feeling conciliatory this morning. You don´t want to know how I really feel.

I am sorry, but all this talk of unity by the democrats is pure unadulterated stinking bunk. The only reason they even offered condolences at all was because they knew it was one of their own that had perpetrated this evil act. I am not buying it. In fact, Nancy Pelosi could not hold her empathy together for 24 hours.

The left has crossed the Rubicon regarding moving violent speech into violent action with their embrace of Occupy Wall Steet, BLM, La Raza, ANTIFA, etc. They are clearly moving toward more violence. Don´t let them fool you. They have thrown off any pretense of rejecting vilolent speech or action as we have witnessed across the country on college campuses. Their ideas have been rejected by the American people. All they have now is coercion by force. The left truly has embraced the dark side. It is better that we acknowledge that than try and assure ourselves that they have changed. We can´t afford to play the fool if we want to save the Republic.

If they´re on a summer internship they need to let go. No matter who the President is they deserve our respect and if they don´t get that then find somewhere else to work.

How much more proof does one need. Democrats are beyond help. They have turned into gutter rats with no morals, no values, no soul and zero respect for anyone. Democrats don´t have political views, they are people who have been indoctrinated and brainwashed into a sick religion. They preach tolerance yet THEY are the most intolerant people on the planet. This country better wake up soon. Got it.

STAFFERS,

It was read that (quite by accident) the truth was let out of the bag. Staffers consist of rats (for BOTH parties). It makes sense in that only in DC the majority of the population would be rats (it´s the atmosphere in this location, it´s the golden goose which has the filled purse) Staffers prepare questions for all formal investigations, among many other responsibilities. How often do you yell at Your Representative/Senator as to why certain questions are asked or are not asked. Rats have infiltrated EVERY branch of government from the roots to the leaves on the branches. Yet the pubbies do nothing to eradicate the varmints. WHY IS THAT?

Trump to hold rally in Arizona
but Phoenix mayor requests delay
Washington Times, by Dave Boyer    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/16/2017 9:09:29     Post Reply
On the heels of raising the possibility of pardoning Sheriff Joe Arpaio, President Trump will travel to Arizona next Tuesday to hold a campaign-style rally in Phoenix. The Trump campaign has scheduled a rally in Phoenix on Tuesday night in what will be the president’s first arena-sized public appearance since the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend, over white nationalist ideology. Last week, Mr. Trump said he would consider a pardon for Mr. Arpaio, the Maricopa County sheriff and political ally who was found guilty of criminal contempt for defying a judge’s order to stop targeting illegal immigrants during

The Interior Department won’t be removing monuments to Confederate soldiers at national battlefields that are “an important part of our country’s history,” according to a spokesman. “The National Park Service is committed to safeguarding these memorials while simultaneously educating visitors holistically and objectively about the actions, motivations and causes of the soldiers and states they commemorate,” spokesman Jeremy Barnum told E&E News. National Park statements come after a woman was killed counter-protesting a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. The city voted to remove a statue of

A pro-Trump rally dubbed the "Mother of All Rallies" (MOAR) is set to take place in Washington, D.C. the very same day as a march on the mall is being held by the Juggalos, the fanbase of the rap-rock group Insane Clown Posse, in protest of the FBI´s classification of Juggalos as a "loosely organized hybrid gang." Both demonstrations are set to take place on September 16th and both eye the National Mall as the backdrop for their protests. Organizers of the MOAR event say their demonstration, which is being promoted as the "Woodstock of American Rallies," is set to "send a message to Congress, the media and the world we stand

Little Rock, AR - A federal appeals court panel ruled Wednesday that Arkansas can block Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood, two years after the state ended its contract with the group over videos secretly recorded by an anti-abortion group. In a 2-1 ruling, an 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel vacated preliminary injunctions a federal judge issued preventing the state from suspending any Medicaid payments for services rendered to patients from Planned Parenthood. Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson ended the state´s Medicaid contract with the organization in 2015. The court ruled the unnamed patients suing

Washington - A desperate search was underway Wednesday for five crew members who were aboard an Army helicopter that suddenly went down off of Hawaii. The downed UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter was on a training mission with another helicopter when it was reported missing at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, about two miles from Kaena Point, which is the westernmost tip of the island of Oahu, the U.S. Army said in a statement. A "debris field" was spotted some two hours later, but there was no sign of the crew members, the U.S. Coast Guard reported. The two helicopters are from the 25th Infantry Division's Combat Aviation

The Trump administration confirmed Wednesday it will make critical Obamacare payments to insurers for August — one day after congressional scorekeepers outlined the risks of cutting off the contested reimbursements over the long haul. The decision will allow insurers to breathe easy in the coming weeks but do little to calm their demands for a permanent commitment to the “cost-sharing reductions,” which reimburse plans for picking up low-income customers’s costs on the Affordable Care Act’s web-based exchanges. President Trump has suggested he would suspend the payments to speed Obamacare’s demise,

The 40th anniversary of the launch of two of NASA’s most remarkable spacecraft is fast approaching. The Voyager 2 mission launched into space on August 20, 1977, followed by Voyager 1 on September 5, 1977. And since their departure from Earth, both spacecraft have accumulated various accolades. Voyager 1 is the first spacecraft to enter interstellar space—the region outside the heliosphere, a giant electromagnetic bubble created by the sun—and is the most distant human-made object ever. And Voyager 2 is the only spacecraft to fly by all four planets of the outer solar system: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has donated $100,000 (£77,690) to an anti-hate charity in the wake of violent clashes between white supremacists and anti-racism campaigners in Charlottesville, Virginia. The actor and former Governor of California said he was “horrified” and “heartbroken” by the violence, which claimed the life of Heather Heyer, 32, who was killed when a car rammed into protesters. James Fields, 20, has been charged with her murder.

Donald Trump said he’s disbanding two advisory groups of American business leaders, after CEOs quit this week as the president faced blowback for failing to sufficiently condemn white supremacists. Trump made the announcement on Twitter, less than an hour after one of the groups was said to be planning to inform the White House that it would break up. “Rather than putting pressure on the business people of the Manufacturing Council & Strategy & Policy Forum, I am ending both. Thank you all!” Trump said on Twitter. His remarks were a reversal of what he said a day before, when he tweeted that he had plenty of CEOs who

President Donald Trump on Wednesday praised North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for supposedly backing down off his threats to bomb the Pacific U.S. territory of Guam. Tensions between the U.S. and North Korea have escalated over the past few weeks and until now, Trump’s tough rhetoric and warnings only increased. “Kim Jong Un of North Korea made a very wise and well reasoned decision. The alternative would have been both catastrophic and unacceptable!” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning, the day after North Korea’s state media said Pyongyang delayed a plan to fire missiles toward Guam.

President Trump should have left well enough alone. His Monday denunciation of costumed sheet-wearers and Nazi wanna-bes could have cleared the way for Americans of all stripes to focus their outrage on things that matter more than presidential words. That would be the violence that is infecting our politics and the frightening acceptance of it as the new normal. But Trump’s defiance yesterday is sure to keep the media pot boiling over his rhetoric instead of an ominous reality. Namely, that real protestors don’t carry baseball bats, crowbars and mace.
