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.
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.
Same little creepy Demonrat staffers who exempted themselves from Obamacare. The corrupt, mentally stifled staffers are a huge part of the problem in government, just as elite as the destructive ruling class Demonrats they work for in Boomtown.
Who are these ´staffers´? What are their names, and what are their job duties? What are their salaries? If we are paying them in any way with tax $, we should be able to know exactly who they are and what they´re supposed to be doing.
This work week has been rough with late hours trying to keep this country safe but I´ll be nice because it´s Friday. These rat staffers if they´re being paid with our money need to be fired. 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.
Why is there not massive public outrage over these so-called "Staffers". Surely, this was on video. These people have got to be publicly indicted. Shown for the crass, low life pukes they are. Mr. Trump, you have Got to fight back.
Obie, Billary, the dims in general, and the msm will be back to business as usual today with a new rollout of hate.
I don´t buy this unity garbage from them for second. Sad that the pubbies are going along with it. Only reason you are seeing it from the dims is because they got caught with their pants down with Hodgkinson. Next time, they won´t even care.
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.
This was just a Shameless and revolting display. Don´t think for one minute that there won´t be more blood coming sooner rather than later. If you don´t carry already you might want to start... Your life might depend on it.

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?
(Video) - Thousands of people in tower blocks in Camden, North London, are being evacuated from 800 homes due to cladding concerns following the Grenfell Tower inferno. Camden Council say families in 800 flats in five blocks on the Chalcots estate are going to be temporarily rehoused in rest centres and hotels for up to four weeks while “urgent fire safety work” is carried out. Tests carried out yesterday on the panels of the high-rise estate showed the cladding fitted to five tower blocks was identical to those used at the gutted North Kensington estate. Leader of Camden Council Georgia Gould said tonight external cladding
CNN late Friday deleted a story from its website that claimed Senate investigators were looking into a Russian investment fund whose chief executive met with a member of President Trump’s transition team, later issuing a retraction in the story´s place. The now-deleted story, by investigative reporter Thomas Frank, was published Thursday and cited a single, unnamed source who claimed that the Senate Intelligence Committee was looking into a "$10-billion Russian investment fund whose chief executive met with a member of President Donald Trump´s transition team four days before Trump´s
Geriatric gangster John “Sonny’’ Franzese — the oldest guest of the federal prison system — is a free man at the age of 100. The Colombo family underboss was rolled out of the Federal Medical Center in Massachusetts in a wheelchair Friday and headed to the home of his daughter in Brooklyn, Newsday reported. At the age of 93, he was sentenced to eight years in prison for shaking down the Hustler and Penthouse strip clubs in Manhattan. Authorities said at the time the doddering don — whom they believed responsible for the murders of between 50 and 100 people — could be released at the age of 100 if he behaved himself in the lockup.
A week before the 2016 presidential election, Senators Dianne Feinstein and Benjamin Cardin sent President Barack Obama a letter urging him to take swift action against Russia for meddling in the electoral process through state-sponsored cyberattacks “on United States’ democratic institutions.” (Snip) Feinstein and Cardin’s two-page letter was a dire warning to Obama. They had hoped he would immediately retaliate against Russia. Perhaps it was an effort to ensure that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was victorious. But, as BuzzFeed News previously reported, the White House did little prior to Nov. 8 to punish
Sacramento, CA - Officials denied parole Thursday for convicted killer Patricia Krenwinkel - a follower of cult leader Charles Manson - after considering whether battered women´s syndrome affected her state of mind at the time of the notorious murders nearly five decades ago in California. Krenwinkel, 69, was previously denied parole 13 times for the slayings of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and four other people. The next night, she helped kill grocer Leno LaBianca and his wife Rosemary in what prosecutors say was an attempt by Manson to ignite a race war. The decision on parole came six months after commissioners postponed
A Catholic bishop has instructed priests in his central Illinois diocese to deny communion, last rites and funeral rites to people in same-sex marriages – unless they repent. In the decree he sent to priests, deacons, seminarians and staff in his Springfield diocese last week, Bishop Thomas Paprocki sets forth a set of norms on same-sex marriage and related pastoral issues that he says are the policy of the diocese. Paprocki´s decree bans priests and parish staff from performing same-sex marriages or allowing same-sex weddings or receptions at any Catholic facilities. People in same-sex marriages "should not present themselves for Holy
The chapter is only a few pages long, but it addresses a potentially explosive suspicion: Did Germany´s foreign intelligence agency, the BND, spy on its most important partner, the United States, in the past? (Snip) Documents that Spiegel has been able to review show that the BND, until a few years ago, actually had considerable interest in the United States as a target of espionage. The document states that just under 4,000 search terms, or selectors, were directed against American targets between 1998 and 2006. It is unknown whether they continued to be used after those dates. The German intelligence agency used the selectors
Even in famously abortion-friendly California there is justice for abortion foes. On June 21, the San Francisco County Superior Court threw out 14 of the 15 felony counts that California Attorney General Xavier Becerra had brought against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, the anti-abortion activists who had made widely circulated undercover videos of Planned Parenthood officials haggling and joking over the compensation they expected to receive for supplying the organs of fetuses aborted at Planned Parenthood clinics to for-profit “tissue-procurement” companies. (Snip) California law forbids the recording of conversations
As Title IX celebrates its 45th anniversary, one impact of the law is clear: Millions more girls now grow up playing sports, a reality that seemed impossible in the early 20th century. But the law encompasses much more than providing equal athletic opportunities for girls and women. Title IX touches every aspect of the educational system in ways that are not always apparent to the law’s target population: students. Title IX essentially bans discrimination on the basis of sex within federally funded schools, including universities. The law states that “no person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in,
Washington - Secretary of State Rex Tillerson plans to remove Iraq and Myanmar from a U.S. list of the world´s worst offenders in the use of child soldiers, U.S. officials said, a step that could prompt accusations the Trump administration is prioritizing security and diplomatic interests ahead of human rights. (Snip) Tillerson also rejected an internal State Department proposal to add Afghanistan to the list, two U.S. officials said. One official said the decisions appeared to have been made following pressure from the Pentagon to avoid complicating assistance to the Iraqi and Afghan militaries, close U.S. allies in the fight
Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Friday that a future war waged by Israel against Syria or Lebanon could draw thousands of fighters from countries including Iran and Iraq. His comments indicated that the same array of Iranian-backed Shi´ite militias - but not countries - currently fighting in Syria in support of President Bashar al-Assad could take part in any future conflict with Israel. Tensions have risen between Hezbollah and its longtime foe Israel in recent months since Donald Trump became U.S. president with his tough talk against Iran. Israel´s air force chief said his country would use all its strength from the start
If you thought fidget spinners were bad, just wait for this. A miniature crossbow that can fire toothpicks and needles is causing headaches for parents and school officials in China, according to news reports. The mini-crossbows are palm size and can be used to pierce apples, soda cans and we´re sure a slew of other items. Several cities, including Shenzhen and Qingdao, and reportedly banned the devices, according to AP. According to AP, the mini-crossbow fad has spread quickly, and resulted in police warning that using the crossbows might become a criminal offense in the Chinese territory or Macau.
Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District unexpectedly showed up in droves. Pollsters say sky-high turnout drove Handel, the GOP nominee, to a nearly 4-point victory on Tuesday, despite most pre-election surveys showing Ossoff with a small-but-shrinking lead. Mathematically, a 4-point loss for a Democratic House candidate in a district that has traditionally elected Republicans by wide margins is an encouraging result for
California is restricting publicly funded travel to four more states because of recent laws that leaders here view as discriminatory against gay and transgender people. All totaled, California now bans most state-funded travel to eight states. The new additions to California’s restricted travel list are Texas, Alabama, Kentucky and South Dakota. They join Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee as states already subjected to the ban. California Attorney Xavier Becerra announced the new states at a Thursday press conference, where he was joined by representatives from ACLU Northern California and Equality California.
(Facebook) - Former President Barack Obama took to Facebook to ask Republicans to reconsider their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. "I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party," Obama wrote. "Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did." He argued that the Republican health care bill
In a year that he would like to forget, which included his acrimonious divorce to Amber Heard, Johnny Depp appeared at a Q&A at the new Cinemageddon stage at Glastonbury. Introducing his 2004 film The Libertine, about a 17th-century poet who notoriously drank himself to an early death, the 54-year-old chose to discuss American politics. "I think [Donald] Trump needs help," he said. "There are a lot of dark places he could go." He added: "I´m not insinuating anything - by the way this will be in the press and it will be horrible - but when was the last
Most illegal immigrants who pay taxes have stolen someone else’s legal identity, and the IRS doesn’t do a very good job of letting those American citizens and legal immigrants know they’re being impersonated, the tax agency’s inspector general said in a new report released Thursday. The theft creates major problems for the American citizens and legal foreign workers whose identities are stolen, and who have to deal with explaining money they never earned. But the IRS only manages to identify half of the potentially 1.4 million people likely affected by the fraud in 2015, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax
[…] John Anzalone, Ossoff’s pollster, said the Democrat’s campaign succeeded in turning out its voters — but they were swamped by Republicans who came out in numbers that ended up dwarfing previous high-profile special elections (link) That’s a very interesting admission/statement for a Politico article. That’s also an example of what happens when President Trump’s ‘Monster Vote‘ turns out. (Politico) Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in
The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials. The Philippines-flagged cargo ship ACX Crystal was under control of a computerized navigation system that was steering and guiding the container vessel, according to officials familiar with preliminary results of an ongoing Navy investigation. Investigators so far found no evidence the collision was deliberate. Nevertheless, an accident during computerized navigation raises the possibility the container ship´s computer system could have been hacked and the ship deliberately steered into the USS Fitzgerald, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer. A more
President Donald Trump has said he will pursue legislation that would bar immigrants from being eligible for welfare for at least five years. At a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, last night he said ´the time has come´ for ´new immigration rules´ that would require those seeking admission to the country to be able to support themselves financially and would bar the use of welfare for a period of at least five years. He said his administration would be ´putting in legislation to that effect very shortly.´ It is unclear, however, how Trump´s proposal would change the current situation.
Attorneys for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl want to ask potential jurors in a court-martial for their views on President Trump and whether they voted for him, according to news reports Wednesday. At a pretrial hearing Wednesday, Berdahl´s lawyers submitted the questions to the judge in the case, out of concern that jurors may be swayed by negative comments Trump made in the presidential campaign about the soldier. "The principal issue has to do with ensuring we are able to identify people who have been nominated to be on the court-martial panel — the jury — who are not in a
President Obama has been out of office only a few months. But he might have both a street and an L.A. freeway named after him soon. Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson has proposed renaming Rodeo Road in southwest L.A. “Obama Boulevard” in honor of the president. Wesson noted that Obama held a campaign rally at Rancho Cienega Park on Rodeo Road when running for president and that the area already has streets named after presidents (Washington, Jefferson, Adams). In May, a plan to name a stretch of the 134 Freeway after Obama moved forward with approval from the
MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski compared President Donald Trump’s administration to North Korea Friday, saying “It does feel like a developing dictatorship.” “I will say you can do some work reading history and reading books about how dictatorship happen. The development of very negative forces taking over and what you are seeing is either this happening right now, or someone who’s not well. Very few options,” Brzezinski continued. Co-host Joe Scarborough tried to lighten to mood during the segment, saying, “I think it’s actually more like Hogan’s Heroes if anything else.” Brzezinski she quietly rebuked Trump once more saying
Ex-Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson’s testimony Wednesday should mark the definitive end of “Russia hacked the election” hysteria. Too bad it took so long to get to this point. Johnson told the House Intelligence Committee outright that the Russians failed to alter “ballots, ballot counts or reporting of election results.” Yes, it’s clear Russia (with Vladimir Putin’s full approval) orchestrated cyberattacks designed to influence the 2016 contest, and also pushed fake news. But the hack, and release via WikiLeaks, etc., of Democratic e-mails produced nothing game-changing. The biggest impact was to confirm the obvious: The Democratic National Committee favored Hillary Clinton from the
