Pro-life Republican Karen Handel wins Georgia special Congressional election

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.

Kathy Griffin wants to decapitate President Trump

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.

Covfefe!!!

Pedogate and the attempted assassination of Rep. Steve Scalise

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:

  • Zack Barth, a congressional aide to Rep. Roger Williams (R-Texas).
  • Tyson Foods director of government relations Matt Mika was shot multiple times and was in critical condition.
  • Special Agent Crystal Griner was shot in the leg. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala) used a belt as a tourniquet to stop the bleeding.

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:

(1) Hodgkinson specifically targeted Republicans

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)

(2) Rep. Scalise has spoken out on child sex predators

(3) Scalise is a co-sponsor of a bill to criminalize those who make, facilitate, use, or transmit “visual images” of child sex

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.

(4) New York Times tipped off the shooter on the Congressional baseball practice field

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.”

(5) President Trump knows

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.

(6) Democrats sent pizzas to Scalise’s staff

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)

(7) John Podesta wanted Rep. Scalise to resign

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.

Cal State U. faculty Lars Maischak wants President Trump hanged and Republicans executed

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:

The Left are trying to start a civil war

After the defeat of Hillary Clinton in last year’s presidential election, the Left are taking America’s decades-old “culture war” to a hot war of actual acts of violence and terrorism.

Kathy Griffin wants to behead President Trump

Both before and after President Trump was inaugurated, the Left poured on their hate and death threats. See:

But their targets aren’t just Trump and his family. It’s now open season on the Right — Trump supporters, Republicans, AltRight and conservatives:

Here are three more less-known recent incidents.

(1) Last Tuesday, June 13, 2017, shots were fired at a truck carrying a “Make America Great Again” flag and an American flag on eastbound I-465 in Indiana.

Fox59 reports that officers believe the shots were fired from a newer white 4-door Chevrolet Malibu with a Louisiana plate near Emerson Avenue around 4 p.m. The victim and a witness informed police that the Malibu pulled up next to the pickup truck, a passenger held a handgun out of the window and then a male fired several shots. Fortunately, no one was injured in the incident.

The driver of the Malibu is described as a black male around the age of 23; the passenger is a light skinned black male with a sleeve tattoo on his right arm. Indiana state police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the shooting to call 317-899-8577.

(2) Yesterday, June 15, threatening letters containing a white powdery substance were placed in the mailboxes of Republican Karen Handel’s neighborhood in Roswell, Georgia.

Karen Handel is the former Secretary of State of Georgia (2007-2010) who is currently a candidate for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District Special Election.

Washington Free Beacon reports that police blocked off Georgia Republican Karen Handel’s neighborhood after threatening letters containing a white powdery substance were left in the mailboxes of Handel and her neighbors.

A neighborhood resident posted a picture (see below) of the contents of the envelope she received, including a threatening letter in graphic language, saying:

“Your neighbor Karen Handel is a dirty fascist cunt but I’m sure you already knew that. Take a whiff of the powder and join her in the hospital you Bourgeoisie motherfuckers. RESIST THE FASCIST TAKEOVER!!!! STRING UP THE COLLABORATORS!”

James Hodgkinson, Rep. Scalise’s shooter, had also ranted about Handel on Facebook, calling her a “Republican bitch”:

“Republican Bitch Wants People to Work for Slave Wages, when a Livable Wage is the Only Way to Go! Vote Blue, It’s Right for You!”

(3) Antifa post guidelines on how to spike pet treats with sharp objects and scatter them in conservative neighborhoods.

Yesterday, /pol/ News Forever @polNewsForever retweeted a tweet calling for targeting areas in Texas “where most altright and far right supporters live” with dog treats “weaponized” with nails. Here’s the original tweet:

American Renaissance has put together an anti-Trump hate map showing the Left’s growing violence against the Right — criminal incidents in which Trump supporters were targeted for political reasons. Each marker on the map shows the location of an anti-Trump hate crime: Red markers signify violent crimes; blue markers, property crimes; purple markers, “other” crimes.

The above shows that the Left are actively fomenting a civil war, which will happen when the Right have had enough and decide to push back.

As with Muslims, where are the voices of “moderate” Democrats/Progressives condemning the Left’s hate rhetoric and acts of violence? Where are the denunciations from Democrat leaders Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, et al.?

See also these other posts on the Left’s hate rhetoric and violence:

The professional posturer: John McCain says US leadership was stronger under Obama

john-mccain-lord-of-the-tarp1

And to think I voted for this RINO.

From Daily Mail: John McCain has said US leadership was stronger under Barack Obama and said Donald Trump‘s criticism of Sadiq Khan suggested American ‘doesn’t want to lead’.

The senator from Arizona had said America’s standing in the world was being damaged by Mr. Trump, who has championed an ‘America First’ approach.

He said the US had been better off under Obama, despite being a fierce critic of the former president and particularly his foreign policy which he awarded an ‘F’ grade.

Mr. McCain, who ran against Obama as the Republican nominee in the 2008 presidential election, said Mr. Trump was in danger of alienating its allies.

It comes after Mr. Trump attacked London Mayor Mr. Khan after the London Bridge terror attack which left eight dead and dozens injured. Mr. Trump criticized the mayor after he told Londoners not to be alarmed about an increased police presence following the atrocity on June 3.

When asked about that, Mr. McCain told the Guardian: ‘What do you think the message is? The message is that America doesn’t want to lead. They [the rest of the world] are not sure of American leadership, whether it be in Siberia or whether it be in Antarctica.’

When asked if America’s standing around the world had been better under Obama, Mr. McCain replied: ‘As far as American leadership is concerned, yes.’

Mr. McCain’s comments are especially relevant as he had been such a fervent critic of the previous administration’s foreign policy. Mr. McCain had previously said there was ‘profound concern across Europe and the world’ that America was ‘laying down the mantle of global leadership’.

And speaking last month in Sydney he said: ‘I know that many of you will have a lot of questions about where America is headed under President Trump. Frankly, so do many Americans.’ 

Discussing Mr. Trump’s alleged links to Russia, he added: ‘I can remember the Watergate scandal and how it brought down a president. I’m not suggesting that’s going to happen to this president, but we are in a scandal and every few days another shoe drops from this centipede, and we’ve got to get through that.’

Mr. Trump’s spat with Mr. Khan was the latest in a series of clashes between the pair. Mr. Khan had previously criticized Mr. Trump’s remarks about Muslims and his attempts to bring in a travel ban against people from six mainly-Muslim countries trying to enter the US, and Mr. Trump labelling him a ‘buffoon’ and challenging him to an IQ test.

Asked about the fallout with Mr. Trump, Mr. Khan told ITV1’s today’s Good Morning Britain: ‘We’re not kids in a playground, he’s the president of the US. I’m too busy to respond to his tweets, isn’t he busy?’

He denied he was stoking up a feud which went back to 2016, when the mayor described the then presidential candidate’s calls for a ban on Muslim entry into the US as ‘ignorant’.

‘It takes two to tango. I’m not tangoing with this guy, I’ve got better things to do,’ said Mr. Khan. ‘From Saturday until now my focus has been dealing with the aftermath of the horrific attack. Working with the police, security services, the Government; that’s why I’ve not responded to the tweets from Donald Trump.’

Prime Minister Theresa May waded into the row with clear criticism of Mr. Trump, insisting he was ‘wrong’ to be criticizing Mr. Khan’s response.

James Comey: ‘I’ve had a lot of conversations with humans’

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?”

Comey: “Yes.”

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.

Like this?
