  1. Breaking News – Members of Congress and aids wounded, alongside Capitol Police Officers in shooting spree early this morning having baseball practice for fundraising event !!!!! http://nation.foxnews.com/2017/06/14/house-majority-whip-steve-scalise-and-aides-shot-baseball-practice

      • I saw a headline at TCTH that said Bernie apologized. God bless him but he’s not responsible for the insanity of his supporter. I don’t think Bernie has EVER been hateful or expressed a desire for violence. He’s no more responsible than Hannity or O’Reilly or Trump would have been if a conservative had done this. It’s true, though, that the left HAS BEEN advocating and PRACTICING and then condoning or explaining away violence by their supporters. I’m not saying Bernie, though. I may be wrong, but I don’t associate him with any of this leftist violence. Correct me if I’m wrong. Rush Limbaugh has already cited some guy who says that it’s “self-defense” if the shooter had a serious medical condition because, you know, Republicans are taking away people’s health care. This is how leftists think. This is what they preach.

          “You can’t continue to enrage people the way the left, and predominantly the media, has been doing. The Democrat Party and the left for years have been feeding this. And particularly since the election of Trump they have virtually assured their supporters that Trump is guilty, guilty of treason. And every congressional hearing is going to provide the proof. Every one. Sessions yesterday, Comey a couple of times, Sally Yates, you name it.

          They build up these expectations that Trump is not really the president. He shouldn’t have been. He cheated. He colluded with the Russians. There isn’t any evidence for it, and so every time the left builds up an event where this is going to be established as fact and it blows up in their faces, it creates rising expectations followed immediately by rank disappointment and anger and letdown over the fact that it’s not happening. …”

          So true.

          • One of the Congressmen who was there, a former military leader, said that had Scalise’s bodyguards NOT been there, they would have been massacred (in place) or they would have had no choice but to try to take the guy out themselves, armed with only baseball bats. Thank God for our veterans. The wounded were treated by someone who was a military medic and, of course, others there had medical training.

          • p.s. I’m SURE that, like CNN, the DemoncRATS STAGED THAT PHOTO of themselves praying. How do I know? A DemoncRAT Congressperson TWEETED IT to the media. Why else do it? If you’re praying, you pray. You know, you hide your goodness under a bushel basket. You DON’T tweet it to the media to make sure YOU get “credit” for being holy and compassionate. VIRTUE SIGNALING. It’s all it was. Maybe guilt, too, but who knows.

        • I actually heard Pelosi say today that she hopes President Trump is successful. That’s how insane these people are and how stupid they think WE are. What? Did she go to confession or something? Just the other day, here’s San Fran Nan talking impeachment. As Rush says, what will they tell their supporters when it doesn’t happen? Unlike US, who waited for it but never got it for 8 long years, no matter how Barry (the ineligible) trashed the Constitution and the law, her supporters ARE proved violent, not to mention immature and insane. We on this side of the aisle are rational HUMAN BEINGS. We’re not violent and so we went to the ballot box and we prevailed. What will they do now?

        • I don’t know. You be the judge: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2017/06/14/bernie-bro-full-archived-facebook-of-dc-shooter-james-hodgkison-461-page-pdf-conversion/

          Bernie said they have to “take down” Trump. Guess one could interpret it like Comey interpreted “I HOPE you …”

    • What an awful story. Thinking about all those poor souls in the UK, too. A real towering inferno. RIP. Pray for their souls. Pray for the Representative, too. Last I heard, he’s in critical condition. Did you see that the shooter stalked the team? Hung out at the YMCA across the street for a long time, just watching. The mayor of some town befriended him there! Thought he was a lonesome soul. Another guy said he thought about reporting him because all he did was hang out and stare across the street or at his laptop. See something, say something. You might save someone’s life.

      • The UK tragedy is at the root of it a colossal engineering mistake,
        though there will be lots of political blame later.
        Architects begun using something they called decorative cladding on these somewhat old looking high rise buildings.
        This cladding served two purposes,
        it added some nice color to what might have been drab bricks or concrete and also it contained some thermal insulation, to reduce heat loss.
        The construction of the cladding is a sandwich.
        The outside facing surface is aluminum (aluminum is a flammable metal although it has a high ignition temperature). The inner core of the sandwich is a couple of inches of stuff. That stuff could be either spun glass fiber (called rockwool in some places) or a polyethylene foam.
        Polyethylene is a plastic. Plastic is made from petroleum. All plastics can burn. Then there is a final inner skin also of aluminum.
        The theory is that each square of cladding, maybe 6 feet square, acted like a combustible chimney. Set alight, the polyethylene burned furiously up the inside chimney igniting the cladding block above it.
        Amateur video of the night shows the whole entire high rise structure catching alight in fifteen minutes. That is crazy!
        The amateur video also shows large channels of flame, following a geometric pattern up the side of the building, I am guessing that is the aluminum skin having been heated high enough to also burn.
        The contractor who installed the cladding said that all relevant building standards of the 70’s were followed.
        Sometimes I think about the Titanic, a maiden vioyage through the North Atlantic and two decades before radar was invented.
        The Captain was, I am led to believe, was under emotional pressure to beat the Atlantic Ocean speed crossing record and the Titanic was a fast ship advertised as unsinkable due to movable hold partitions.
        All the Captain had to do as night fell was grab that signalling thing and tell the engine room ahead dead slow.
        He didn’t.
        All the engineers that designed the cladding had to say was you can’t put a highly flammable plastic in the middle of this sandwich.
        They didn’t.
        You can’t mess around with this stuff and you can’t hope that politicians will look out for the public. Politicians are only smart enough to assign blame, they don’t understand basic science and engineering.

        • A failure of imagination, then. Engineering ought to include all worst-case scenarios, like what just happened. (They need to hire more paranoids, iow. People who can imagine these worst-case situations. I totally understand that so many people are optimists and don’t brainstorm about such outcomes.)

          I watched what I could of the fire on FOX News (covered in a window as Hannity and the rest talked about other things). I noticed those big pieces of cladding, coming off the building. Some of the just floated there, airborne by the heat of the inferno. I thought they looked like plastic and figured the fumes must be horrific and that the plastic was fueling the fire. It was a horrible thing to watch, knowing that most likely still people inside. I didn’t see the people with flashlights or waving from the windows, or throwing children or jumping out windows. It reminded me of 9/11. So awful. God rest their souls. What an awful way to die. And to know in advance what’s going to happen.

          Thanks for the scientific analysis. With regard to the Titanic, didn’t they recently postulate that the skin of the vessel had been weakened by an earlier fire in the engine room, which caused the iceberg to be able to rip it apart so easily, when it coincidentally struck where the fire had been?

    Oh I know, the producers are oh so clever,
    It’s just Shakespere ya know, free speech etc
    Free speech does not apply to sedition, to a conspiracy to encourage the murder of the President.
    Forget what you see.
    There will be an email trail surrounding the script,
    surrounding the casting,
    surrounding internal discussions with their lawyers.
    I’m am sick to death of the restraint shown by this Justice Department.
    Seize the emails and arrest the senders.
    It’s an obvious slam dunk.
    If you let this crap go on you let the real violence begin, as above.
    Act now.

    • Exactly so. Shut it down. (Caveat: But not by government force. By the producers realizing the wrongness of the entire premise. Apologize, too, while they’re at it.)

      First thing I thought of after the initial shock wore off was to wonder if they would decide to close it down.

      And here they are on CNN (the reporters), acting AS IF they haven’t all been hyping this hatred of Trump and Republicans ever since even before the election. I told my hubby that if the parties were reversed, they’d be blaming Limbaugh and Hannity for this. Well, guess what? Shooter is a YUGE MADCOW FAN. No surprise there! So they need to cancel this “play” ASAP and I hope Kathy Griffin is proud of herself. These are HUMAN BEINGS, even if they support Trump or belong to his party. The media and the DemoncRATS have been dehumanizing Trump, his supporters, conservatives, and all Republicans for decades. Guess who else this shooter admires? SPLC. The so-called anti-hate group that is about as full of hate as you can imagine. That play is even worse than I thought originally. The reference to Trump and his wife are obvious, but they also praise Occupy and “peaceful protesters”, wear “pussy hats”, compare the Trump supporters to Big Brother, and hype “intersectionality.” All a bunch of progressive neo-fascist blather.

  3. But I think free speech does apply to political satire and commentary, no? Should they be protested, and shunned? Yeah, maybe. ARRESTED?? Scary thought in my humble opinion.

    • I agree. I don’t want to see censorship imposed by the government. Let “society” take care of it the same way the Amish do–SHAME and SHUNNING (used to be called manners and voting with your pocketbook).

      • I am not sure the free speech amendment applies here.
        If I say all green people are crud that is probably protected.
        If I say organize and kill alll green people I think that is conspiracy to commit murder.
        Anyways the President is a special protected instance.Because of the defense of free speech and the camoflage of the play as “art”
        proof of conspiracy would lie in the internal correspondence regarding the legal status of the play.

  4. So how long did the detente last? Less than 12 hours. I watch NBC evening news and what do they do? They call the shooter a “homeless man!” He’s not homeless. He has a business and a nice house in Belleville, IL. He was “homeless” only because he drove to DC and lived out of his car while PLANNING his crime! Then, when they show President Trump’s speech, they can’t just show it. No, they have to preface it with how he’s often “polarizing” but how his speech today was written in consultation with VP Pence and others so his words called for unity and were judicious. AS IF he WOULD be “polarizing” except for the influence of Pence et al. So, iow, Trump asks for it with his usual rhetoric.

  5. Rush made a good point in his rant today: The FBI is looking like mad for “evidence” of the Russian/Trump collusion but they don’t see this plot taking place right under their noses AND they won’t comment about it. They give this shooter the benefit of the doubt. Can’t ascribe motive. Too soon. But they don’t give our president the benefit of any doubt. Or his right to “innocent until proved guilty.”

  6. Published 6 hours ago. How long before they disappear it?

    “It is only fitting that in this season of fake news there is plenty of exaggerated outrage to go around. Consider the latest kerfuffle over the Public Theater’s production of “Julius Caesar,” in which Caesar is a Trumpian figure with blond hair, odd hand gestures and a wife with an Eastern European accent.

    Breitbart and Fox News were aggrieved that the play appeared to show President Trump assassinated on stage under an American flag. And if there was any doubt why this was terrible, the hosts of “Fox & Friends” also noted that “women and minorities” played some of the senators who did the deed — a reminder of the old right-wing horror of horrors: cross-gender and cross-cultural casting of Shakespeare productions. Ever alert to having their brands associated with controversies — aside from ones they create themselves — Bank of America and Delta Air Lines swiftly pulled support: the bank for this production and Delta for its sponsorship of the Public, which presents the Shakespeare in the Park series of which this performance is a part.

    The commentators stoking this scandal are following a familiar playbook. …”

  7. btw, it’s President Trump’s birthday. 71 years. With you could have had a happy birthday, Mr. President.

  8. ~ Terrence Lorelei •

    The “full story” in the Politico states that Chuck Schumer said we should
    all be engaging in a “civil discourse” instead of “hateful rhetoric”. How is THAT for slimy, total hypocrisy? …….

  9. ~Southernyankee •
    This is a very dangerous situation that the democrats have gotten us
    into with their outrageous rhetoric that incites people to violence, I just hope that Rep.Scalise recovers from his wounds.

    ~ Disarmed in CA Southernyankee •
    Leftists are radicalizing their followers just like ISIS does!


    • Not only are they remorseless but they also opine that doing it singly is not enough. They must be organized. I think they’re all TOO ORGANIZED and we know who’s the organizer in chief.

  10. dead BUTT” WHAT the F..does it MATTER NOW? WAY 2 LATE!

  11. & paid 4 …. ….. this sick MONEY$ BAGS …. SOROS ??? ^^^^

    This is all paid for by George Soros & liberals. It is conditioned in very concise methods to brainwash people who are victims or feel guilty, to feel helpless & incapable of saving themselves unless Hillary Clinton is
    in power.

    • Speaking of Soros: Wouldn’t it be interesting if they found proof that somebody paid that guy to attack the Congresspersons’ baseball practice? I’m just sayin’. Supposedly they seized his devices and laptop. There MUST have been plenty on it, since he sat at the Y all day looking at it and at the practice field. He was YUGE in the Occupy Wall Street movement. We know who funded that. Was he one of their paid “peaceful protestors?”

    • He really should resign. We’re supposed to believe he’s so ethical and yet his connections to Comey REQUIRE an ethical person to step down, IF it’s true that he’s investigating whether, by firing Comey, Trump obstructed justice (which is IMPOSSIBLE, BTW, SINCE IT’S HIS CONSTITUTIONAL POWER TO EXERCISE BOTH PROSECUTORIAL DISCRETION AND TO FIRE ANYBODY WHO WORKS FOR HIM). Comey also WAS duty bound to RESIGN because his bias against Trump was obvious from day one. He believed before he even met Trump that he is a liar. Such an honorable, ethical man of integrity, as we’re told Comey is, should have RESIGNED immediately rather than to stay on, in a sneaky, snaky fashion, in order to secretly gather “evidence” to use against his boss if he should ever get fired. Trump was RIGHT to demand his loyalty and he should have gone with his instincts and asked for his resignation asap instead of asking for loyalty. Whoever advised Trump to keep Comey on did him a GREAT disservice.

    • btw, I believe that Trump is in charge of the entire executive branch and so it’s totally in his power to ORDER them to open a case against Hillary’s shady connections (to Russia and other enemies) as well as to re-open the case of her emails. Did he not PROMISE to appoint a special prosecutor for that case, should he be elected?

  13. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/06/15/jeremy-corbyn-empty-homes-owned-rich-should-requisitioned-grenfell/

    Just when you think things can’t get crazier:

    “Jeremy Corbyn has called for the empty homes of rich people in Kensington to be seized for Grenfell Tower residents who have been made homeless by the fire.

    The Labour leader said that the London Borough was a “tale of two cities” between a wealthy south and a rich north.

    He suggested that “requisitioning” expensive vacant properties could help ensure that residents are housed locally.

    The Government has committed to rehousing all those who lost their homes in the fire in the local area.

    However Mr Corbyn said: “Kensington is a tale of two cities. The south part of Kensington is incredibly wealthy, it’s the wealthiest part of the whole country. …”

    “Requisitioning” other people’s homes! Didn’t we fight a war to stop the Brits from doing something similar here? (Quartering their troops?) Sheesh.

    This is priceless:

    ““It can’t be acceptable that in London we have luxury buildings and luxury flats left empty as land banking for the future while the homeless and the poor look for somewhere to live. We have to address these issues.” …”

    This is leftist socialist thought. It CAN’T BE ACCEPTABLE, imho, to have people who think like this in power. (Thank goodness May squeaked by.) I have an idea: How about Corbyn PUTTING THEM ALL UP IN HIS HOUSE?

    • Corbyn is a traditional communist.
      This is just expected behavior from him.

      • Scary that he came so close to winning. I hadn’t a clue that the UK populace was that “liberal.” Is it just that there were no good choices?

  14. Starbucks customer says she was bullied ….. for supporting Trump

    • She has the proof, too, because she took a picture of the cup where, instead of her name, they wrote “build a wall.” Then they shouted that at her when they had her drink, shoved it at her, and all the “baristas” laughed at her, making a scene and humiliating her. Of course, it sounds from the Starbucks response that they’re not going to be punished as they would be if, for example, they’d have ridiculed a liberal, a woman, or a “person of color.” Nope. No firings. No punishment. Just a “coaching” opportunity. How about some “diversity of thought training?” How about some training in MANNERS and RESPECT for other people?

  15. Yellowstone – 4.5 earthquake !!!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtTn5WKa9fk

    • Changing vacay plans. 🙂 Hope it’s not a precursor to “the big one.”

      • Apparently there was a 4.8 in 2014. MAYBE time to panic, but hopefully not!

        • I’m not panicking. Just joking. We’re probably more likely to be hit by an asteroid or a plague. Heaven forbid! Or an EMP. Live for the day. Tomorrow’s only a promise. Can’t think of any other platitudes. 🙂 Anyway, I read somewhere not long ago that the hot spot under Yellowstone doesn’t really have it in it to blow like it did to create the Yellowstone caldera (again). We can only hope and pray. I don’t want to end up like a Pompeian.

      • Mary Greeley has been monitoring Yellowstone for the last four or five years and usually has a daily report. The Park is still showing numerous mini-quakes today after the event that, as usual, go unreported. In addition, Might want to bookmark her sight. If another substantial quake hits soon, somewhere east of the Mississippi should be your destination. They estimate some 28 million will not survive, if it goes !!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdsAJQHUUKM

  16. Alex Jones, “fair and balanced” or, “beauty and the beast” !!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkpNO675Beg

    • I don’t know what to make of either of them.

    • Are you kidding? This hasn’t got to do with Alex Jones …..they could care less about Alex…..It’s to tie President Trump with any fringe conspiracy oriented persona. Simple as that. It’s a hit piece on THe Donald”.

  17. Obama won’t like this!!! 😆

  18. ~ • 4 hours ago … OLD “BLACK” ….COSBY …was it really just

    • Was supposed to be Ms. Cosby but is mistakenly our lovely First Family!

    • Video deleted per request.

      Zen–this happens to me sometimes and I can’t figure out why. I will copy and paste a link but it doesn’t “take”. Lucky for me, I can edit. Anyway, sometimes, too, Youtube just moves on to another video after I’ve watched it. It changes the link in the address bar, too, so I’m copying the link to the NEXT video instead of the one I just watched! VERY annoying.
