Despite the despicable machinations of the liberal media, pop culture “celebrities,” and the deep state against President Trump, and the very real terrorist violence in acts and speech against a duly-elected, sitting President and his supporters, the Democrats continue to lose — deservedly.
Last night, the Democrats lost again in the hotly-contested run-off election for Georgia’s sixth congressional district, which was vacated when President Trump appointed former Rep. Tom Price to be Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Despite millions of Democrat dollars poured into pro-abortion John Ossof’s campaign, pro-life Republican Karen Handel won the election. With 100% of precincts reporting, Handel had 52.7% and Ossoff had 47.3%.
Just days before the election, on June 15, Handel and her neighbors were victims of the Left’s terror when they received threatening letters containing a white powdery substance in their homes’ mailboxes.
Karen Handel, a Roman Catholic business woman, was Georgia’s Secretary of State from 2007 to 2010.
Claire Chretien reports for LifeSiteNews that Karen Handel had fought Planned
Parenthood Abortionhood. In 2011, as senior vice president of public policy of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Handel advised the breast-cancer charity organization to cut ties with Planned Parenthood (PP), which the charity did in early 2012. That led to PP and its political allies viciously attacking Komen and forcing it to reverse its new policy. Handel resigned and documented PP’s actions in a book, Planned Bullyhood: The Truth Behind the Headlines about the Planned Parenthood Funding Battle with Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
In the special run-off election, Planned Parenthood endorsed Ossoff and poured six figures into his campaign. The pro-life Susan B. Anthony List endorsed Handel, as well as contacted more than 65,000 voters with information about her opposition to taxpayer-funded and late-term abortions, and her battle to defund Planned Parenthood.
During their first debate, Ossoff attacked Handel over the Komen/Planned Parenthood incident. Handel defended herself, pointing out that the Komen Foundation’s grants to PP “were not effective” and that:
“It doesn’t matter how many times you say it, it does not make it true. Planned Parenthood does not do mammograms. Period.“
Handel then detailed how she has spent her career fighting for women’s health through anti-breast cancer advocacy and awareness:
“I am gonna be at the frontline of fighting for women. I am not going to be lectured by you, John.”
“Reporting” for The Guardian, former Daily Beast reporter Ben Jacobs archly observes with barely-contained frustration: “The race was the latest in a series of special elections in Republican seats where Democrats managed to deliver moral victories – rather than actual victories – as they proved unable to notch a major electoral win in the Trump administration.”
“Moral victories”? What moral victories?
The election actually was a farce because, as President Trump pointed out in a tweet, John Ossoff couldn’t even vote for himself because he lives with his girlfriend outside the district.
On the morning of June 14, 2017, at 7:09 am at a practice of the Republican team for the Congressional Baseball Game in a public park (Eugene Simpson Stadium Park) in Alexandria, VA, about 10 miles from Washington, DC, a Bernie Sanders supporter named James T. Hodgkinson of Illinois opened fire with a rifle on the Republicans, shooting and wounding Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA) and three other people. (Wikipedia)
As reported by Fox News, Sen. Jeff Flake and former combat surgeon Rep. Brad Wenstrup ran to assist Scalise after U.S. Capitol Police shot and killed Hodgkinson, 66, who had a violent history including arrests for battery, resisting arrest and drunken driving. Senator Rand Paul, also a witness, said he heard “as many as 50 shots”. Calling the scene “sort of a killing field,” Paul said, “We were like sitting ducks. Without the Capitol Hill police it would have been a massacre.”
Shot in the hip, Rep. Scalise was the only member of Congress to be hit. The other three who were wounded are:
Initially conscious after being shot, Scalise went into shock while being taken to MedStar Washington Hospital Center in critical condition, where he underwent immediate surgery. MedStar is the same hospital to which Seth Rich — believed to the source of the damaging DNC emails published by WikiLeaks — was brought after being shot in a residential D.C. neighborhood early Sunday morning, July 10, 2016. Rich died in MedStar under suspicious conditions.
MedStar surgeon Dr. Jack Sava — said to have been Seth Rich’s surgeon as well — said Scalise had been hit by a single rifle bullet that “traveled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding”. Sava said that when Scalise arrived at the hospital, “he was in critical condition with an imminent risk of death,” but that after surgery by June 16, although still in critical condition, “We have controlled internal bleeding and his vital signs have stabilized”. On June 17, Scalise’s condition was upgraded to “serious” and he was responsive enough to talk with his family. He will required additional operations to manage abdominal and bone injuries.
Stephen Joseph Scalise, 51, is House Majority Whip and the representative for Louisiana’s 1st congressional district, serving since 2008. Scalise endorsed President Trump during last year’s presidential campaign, and has been a vocal backer of Trump’s travel ban. As chair of the House Republican Study Committee, he has spearheaded the effort to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
The buzz in the Alternative Media is that Scalise was targeted because of his strong stance against child predators and sex trafficking. Seven reasons are cited in support:
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), who left the baseball practice just before the shooting, told Fox News that as he was walking to his car, a man asked him if it was Republicans or Democrats practicing. About 3 minutes later, at around 7:09 a.m., the shooting began. DeSantis said James Hogkinson was the man who had approached him.
In fact, Hodgkinson had a “kill” list of names of conservative Republican Congressmen in his pocket at the time of the shooting. (Fox News)
Scalise is one of 6 co-sponsors of H.R. 1761: Protecting Against Child Exploitation Act of 2017, which amends title 18, United States Code, to criminalize the knowing consent of the visual depiction or live transmission of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct, and for other purposes, including the amendment of subsections (a) and (b) of Section 2251 of title 18, United States Code to read as follows:
“(a) Any person who, in a circumstance described in subsection (f), knowingly—
“(1) employs, uses, persuades, induces, entices, or coerces a minor to engage in any sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing any visual depiction of such conduct, or transmitting a live visual depiction of such conduct;
“(2) produces or causes to be produced a visual depiction of a minor engaged in any sexually explicit conduct where the production of such visual depiction involves the use of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct and such visual depiction is of such conduct;
“(3) transmits or causes to be transmitted a live visual depiction of a minor engaged in any sexually explicit conduct;
“(4) has a minor assist any other person to engage in any sexually explicit conduct during the commission of an offense set forth in paragraphs (1) through (3) of this subsection; or
“(5) transports any minor in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce with the intent that such minor be used in the production or live transmission of a visual depiction of a minor engaged in any sexually explicit conduct,
shall be punished as provided under subsection (e).
(b) Any parent, legal guardian, or person having custody or control of a minor who, in a circumstance described in subsection (f), knowingly permits such minor to engage in, or to assist any other person to engage in, sexually explicit conduct knowing that a visual depiction of such conduct will be produced or transmitted shall be punished as provided under subsection (e).”
HR 1761 was passed by the House of Representatives on May 25, 2017. The bill was received in the U.S. Senate on June 5, and referred to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary.
From a NYT article by Nicholas Fandos on April 12, 2017:
“When members of Congress practice in the early mornings in an Alexandrea, Va., public park for their Congressional Baseball Game, plainclothes United States Capital Police are sitting there in a black S.U.V.”
On June 14, the day of the shooting, President Trump and First Lady Melania made a surprise, unscheduled visit to Rep. Scalise at MedStar. They were accompanied by Trump’s personal physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson. (New York Daily News)
The Alt-Media say this is Trump’s way of ensuring Scalise’s survival by sending a message to Pedogate that he is watching them.
By now, anyone acquainted with Pizzagate cannot help but associate pizza with peodphiles.
Given that, it is curious that on the day of the shooting, staffers for House Minority Whip Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) were seen carrying several boxes of pizza to Scalise’s office. (The Hill)
In 2015, John Podesta, chair of Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign and a prime player in Pizzagate, was part of a signature drive in a petition to get Scalise to resign.
Here’s the email published by WikiLeaks:
So, do you think Congressman Scalise was targeted because of his stance on Pedogate? Sound off in our poll!
By the way, two days ago, AltMedia journalist Jack Posobiec tweeted that a source told him “the Podesta case is open,” implying that the FBI is investigating John Podesta.
Please pray that the evildoers be brought to justice.
More terrorism from the Left.
Lars Maischak is a lecturer (which means he’s a temporary hire, and not a “ladder” faculty on track toward tenure) in the History department at California State University, Fresno.
As reported by The Daily Caller, in a series of vicious tweets, Maischak compares Trump to Hitler and calls for the hanging of President Trump, the execution of two Republicans for every illegal immigrant who’s deported, and the banning of the Republican Party — all of which Maischak justifies as “saving democracy”. (Note: Maischak has since deleted his tweets and his Twitter account)
“To save American democracy, Trump must hang. The sooner and the higher, the better. #TheResistance #DeathToFascism.”
“Has anyone started soliciting money and design drafts for a monument honoring the Trump assassin, yet?”
“#TheResistance #ethniccleansing Justice = The execution of two Republicans for each deported immigrant.”
“Mercy towards racists was always the fatal weakness of good Americans. 1865, 1965, they left too many of them alive.”
“#TheResistance A democracy must not be tolerant of those who want to abolish democracy. It must vigorously defend itself. Ban the @GOP.”
The blatantly biased Cory James — who archly calls Breitbart News “far-right” but neglects to characterize Maischak with any adjective, such as the fitting label “far left” — reports for Fresno’s ABC30 that after “far-right” Breitbart called attention to Maischak’s “hang Trump” tweet, Maischak said he does not condone violence and defended his tweet by claiming it had been taken out of context and doing a Bill Clinton on the meaning of the word “must”:
“At the moment, based on my conviction that a majority of Americans are committed to Democracy, it, therefore, follows that ‘Trump must hang…,’ with the word ‘must,’ expressing a logical necessity rather than a demand or wish.”
Cal State Fresno’s president, Dr. Joseph Castro, lamely defends Maischak in a tweet and a statement:
“Fresno State understands the deep concerns that have been shared as a result of personal comments made by Professor Lars Maischak, who is a lecturer in the History Department at Fresno State. In response to these concerns, we have conducted a preliminary review to ensure that it is clear that the statements made by him were as a private citizen, not as a representative of Fresno State. Professor Maischak’s personal views and commentary, with its inclusion of violent and threatening language, is obviously inconsistent with the core values of our University.
Our primary concern is for the safety of our students and with providing a conducive learning environment. We acknowledge that our faculty have an obligation to establish and maintain ethical and professional conduct, inside and outside of the classroom.
While Fresno State is committed to state and federal constitutional rights of free speech, the content of statements by Dr. Maischak warrants further review and consideration. The review of these and any other statements will be conducted in the context of rights of free expression, but also for potential direct threats of violence that may violate the law.
The University is taking this matter seriously and handling it in accordance with applicable law and policy, as well as our traditions of academic freedom and the requirements of the faculty collective bargaining unit agreement. The University will fully cooperate with any investigations conducted by Federal officials.”
– Fresno State President Joseph I. Castro
Reportedly, Maischak has been put on paid leave. As you can see by going here, Maischak is still listed as a History lecturer at Cal State Fresno.
Here’s contact info. for you to register your objection and call for the firing of Maischak. This man has no business teaching America’s youth:

Lars Maischak is not only a terrorist, he’s also an utter failure as an academic, being 48 years old and just a temp lecturer. There are 48-year-old academics who are tenured full professors.

H/t Henry Makow and FOTM‘s TPR
Yesterday, during his appearance before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, former FBI Director James Comey was grilled by a very confusing-sounding Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on what McCain called Comey’s “double standard” — in the FBI ending its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private unsecure email server vs. the agency’s ongoing investigation of Donald Trump’s connections, if any, with Russia.
Beginning at the 6:04 mark of the video clip above, McCain and Comey had a rather incoherent exchange:
McCain: “Then when the President said to you you talked about the April 11th phone call and he said, ‘Because I’ve been very loyal to you, very loyal, we had that thing, you know.’ Did that arouse your curiosity as to what ‘that thing’ was?”
McCain: “Why didn’t you ask him.”
Comey: “It didn’t seem to me to be important for the conversation we were having to understand it. I took it to some, um, effort to, to, erh, communicate to me that there is a relationship between us, where I’ve been good to you, you should be good to me.”
McCain: “Yea, but I think it would intensely arouse my curiosity if the President of the United States said we had that thing, you know. I’d like to know what the hell that thing is, particularly if I’m the director of the FBI.”
Comey: “Yeah, I get that, senator. Honestly, I’ll tell you what, this is speculation, but what I concluded at the time is in his [Trump’s] memory, he was searching back to our encounter at the dinner and was preparing himself to say ‘I offer loyalty to you, you promise loyalty to me,’ and all of a sudden, his memory showed him that did not happen, and I think he pulled up short. That’s just a guess. But I, I’ve had a lot of conversations with humans over the years.“
Now why would Comey say that?
“I’ve had a lot of conversations with humans over the years” implies that Comey also had conversations with non-humans.
Or McCain? LOL
I took the above 2 screenshots from a video of an interview McCain did with Larry King some time during the Obama administration.
