Up until recently, many Americans lived in a bubble. That bubble consisted of the belief that the two political parties we’re only at odds in an ideological sense, and everybody really wanted what was best for everyone else. Sadly, that bubble was burst when one lone gunman decided to take the ideological war and turn it into an actual war with bullets and blood and victims.
This brought home the fact that not all of these sideways comments about “doing whatever it takes” and “taking to the streets” are being taken metaphorically. These dedicated followers are actually taking this stuff to heart and making the battle against the Republicans very personal.
While that shooting was the most notable and violent attempt on the lives of Republican congressmen, it was far from the only way their lives have been endangered. These men and women on the front lines of freedom in Washington have been the target of escalating attacks for some time, and it’s time to get to the bottom of it all.
Here’s a list (though it’s far from exhaustive) of some of the worst attacks on our congressmen and women.
A total of 30 Republican members of Congress have either been attacked or revealed that they were the victim of a death threat since the beginning of May.
May 8: Wendi Wright, 35, was arrested after stalking Rep. David Kustoff (Tenn.) and trying to run him off the road. After pulling over, Wright ‘began to scream and strike the windows on Kustoff’s car and even reached inside the vehicle.’
May 9: Virginia Rep. Tom Garrett needed heavy security at a town hall after receiving a series of death threats in May that police “deemed to be credible and real.”
‘This is how we’re going to kill your wife,’ one message said. Others detailed how they would kill his children, and even his dog.
May 12: A town hall participant accosted North Dakota Rep. Kevin Cramer, shoving fake dollar bills into his suit jacket. A Kramer supporter grabbed the same man by the neck. Both men were ejected by law enforcement, but neither were charged.
May 12: A Tucson, Ariz. school district employee was arrested by the FBI for sending several death threats to Arizona Rep. Martha McSally. The man threatened to shoot McSally and told her to “be careful” because her days ‘were numbered.’
May 21: Florida Rep. Ted Yoho described his office getting vandalized by protesters. One female constituent left a voicemail on an office answering machine, promising, ‘Next time I see you, I’m going to beat your f**king ass.’
June 14: Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.) and Jeff Flake (Ariz.), and Reps. Steve Scalise (La.), Kevin Brady (Texas), Jack Bergman (Mich.), Mike Bishop (Mich.), Mike Conaway (Texas), Roger Williams (Texas), John Moolenaar (Mich.), Gary Palmer (Ala.), Chuck Fleischmann (Tenn.), Ron DeSantis (Fla.), Barry Loudermilk (Ga.), Mark Walker (N.C.), Steve Pearce (N.M.), Brad Wenstrup (Ohio), Rodney Davis (Ill.), Jeff Duncan (S.C.), Trent Kelly (Miss.), Mo Brooks (Ala.), and Joe Barton (Texas) were attacked by a gunman during a baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.
Scalise, the House majority whip, was shot in the hip, and remains in the hospital. Four others were injured, including a staffer for Williams and two Capitol Police officers assigned to Scalise.
The same day, New York Rep. Claudia Tenney received an email reading, ‘One down, 216 to go.’
June 17: Missouri Rep. Ann Wagner revealed that she had gotten five death threats in the weeks leading up to the Scalise shooting. Wagner said that protesters had been ‘vandalizing my home, showing up with masks and gravestones, and laying down on my driveway and drawing chalk outlines of dead bodies. Picketing my church at 8 and 10 o’clock Mass.’
June 22: An Ohio man was arrested for leaving a voicemail threatening the life and family of Rep. Steve Stivers (Ohio).
‘We’re coming to get every goddamn one of you and your families. Maybe the next one taken down will be your daughter. Huh? Or your wife. Or even you,’ the man said.
The same day, Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz played a threatening voicemail he had received on ‘Fox & Friends.’
‘I suggest you prepare for the battle motherf**ker, and the apocalypse,’ the caller yelled. ‘Because we are going to hunt your ass down, wrap a rope around your neck, and hang you from a lamppost.'”
There are always going to be crazy people out there who think it’s ok to try and threaten and intimidate people. Whether that’s because they don’t believe in what the congresspeople are doing or just because they’re lunatics. Nobody thinks that this will all just go away, however, it’s about time that we stop encouraging it. The politicians we send to Washington are meant to do metaphorical war and solve problems without violence.
We have a group of men and women whom we send to deal with the problems that require lethal force, but they don’t wear suits and ties. And if things keep getting out of hand like this the government will have no choice but to use some of those people to deal with the problem. You’d just better hope you’re not on the wrong end of that confrontation because your liberal rhetoric won’t do you much good then.

El Chapo’s Cash Won’t Be Used On Trump’s Wall So Look Who Showed Up With $21 Bil For It Overnight
President Donald Trump was recently presented with an incredible surprise of who could be paying for one of his most important and expensive campaign promises when Texas Senator Ted Cruz proposed a bill to use $14 billion seized from notorious drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman. The ingenious and perfectly ironic funding source for this important safety feature was met with as many road blocks as the idea for the wall itself. As quickly as that idea was shot down, a surprise financier showed up overnight with the approximately $21 billion needed to foot the bill and you won’t believe where it came from.
The only thing that’s been holding America’s safety and security back is the ability to fund the 40-foot tall wall that’s expected to stretch approximately 1,000 miles along the U.S. – Mexico border. Although the lengthy construction process is already underway, it could be finished much quicker than originally thought after having solved one of the biggest challenges it has faced to date.
“Building ‘a big, beautiful wall’ on the Southern border was Trump’s signature promise during his campaign, winning him support from advocates for hard-line immigration reform,” Politifact reported.
Original estimates for the cost of this project came in at $12 to $15 billion, however, Bernstein Research, who calculates total building cost believes it could actually come in somewhere around $15 billion to $25 billion. The Department of Homeland Security agrees, estimating a specific $21.6 billion price tag for this massive project, according to Politifact. While that total is in excess of the $14 billion taken from El Chapo upon his arrest, the financing problem could soon be solved if Alabama Senator Luther Strange gets his way.
Strange went on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson to discuss his idea of where this much-needed wad of cash could come from right now, and it’s as ironic as using drug money to pay for it. Those who want immigrants in this country don’t seem to have an issue with paying for them to be here, so they should be okay with footing the bill to keep them in their country.
Strange explained to Tucker that the funds should come directly from so-called Sanctuary Cities who don’t follow the law. In essence, this would be a fine for going against the President, not cooperating with local police, refusing to turn immigrants in, and worst of all, actually preventing people from fairly bidding on the border wall. Sanctuary cities like San Francisco, California punish their citizens for participating in bidding on the construction of the wall by banning them from doing any other work in the city. This is not a democracy, it’s a dictatorship decided by liberals and since they aren’t stopping, Strange wants them to pay for the wall that’s already written into law.
— Fox News (@FoxNews) June 7, 2017
The Senator’s simple solution is that cities who refuse to comply with the nation’s law aren’t going to get the money that they expect from the government because it’s going to go to building the wall. It makes perfect sense to not reward bad behavior with cash that could be used to ensure the rule of law which our nation is built on. Sanctuary Cities don’t make their own rules and can’t expect other people to pay for it when it goes against what the president has already set. Rather than defunding these defiant cities, divert the funding and let their laws be the country’s gain.
Along this same line of logic that Strange presented, costs of this wall could also be met it America stopped or slowed the flow of funding to Mexico. It only makes sense to use the money being sent over the border for the barrier between us since we’re also trying to block Mexican citizens from entering America illegally.
This isn’t about keeping good people out and prevent people from wanting to seek a better life and the American dream, it’s only about preventing those from entering the wrong way and wreaking havoc, compromising citizen’s safety, and sapping off our resources. If it’s important to become a law-abiding American citizen and reap the rewards of living in this country, there’s an immigration to follow to prove those intentions.
The next best thing to using a drug lord’s seized money earned from abusing our border is to make Sanctuary Cities pay for it. They can’t make their own laws to harm people and force other people to pay for it too.
Ex-FBI Director Comey Just Lost EVERYTHING After His SICKEST Secret Yet Gets Out About What He Hid In NY
Back in the good old days, traitors to this country were hanged for treason. Fast forward to today and not only are treasonous politicians still in office, but they’re leading illegal acts of sabotage against our President and lying under oath. After recently learning that FBI director James Comey predetermined the outcome of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email by not even investigating her, the time for this slimy weasel to continue his illegal antics against this country is unfortunately for him now coming to an abrupt end.
Comey’s illegal escapades began during the Senate Judiciary Committee last year where he lied under oath about Hillary Clinton not being guilty of using her private email server to store classified and above-top-secret documents. He’s popped his head out several times this year making various appearances before congressional committees to discus issues where he’s constantly made contradictory or false statements while under oath, defiantly disregarding his position to uphold the law. Now there’s an active movement to get this crooked man disbarred from being able to practice law for the rest of his life, according to a breaking report from the The Washington Times.
“As such, an attorney named Ty Clevenger has filed a grievance with the New York Bar Association against Comey, where he used to serve as a U.S. attorney and still retains a license to practice law,” Conservative Tribune reported. They went on:
The heart of the issue outlined in Clevenger’s grievance is the fact that Comey testified during a Sept. 2016 hearing that he had not predetermined the outcome of the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server prior to his announcement that there’d be no criminal charges in July 2016.
That assertion has since been proven false by the revelation that Comey had prepared draft statements exonerating Clinton of wrong-doing several months prior to interviewing her or more than a dozen others associated with the scandal.
This rather important discrepancy was discovered by the Senate Judiciary Committee as they looked into Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation and subsequent termination by President Donald Trump, and was noted in an August 2017 letter sent by committee chair Sen. Chuck Grassley to FBI Director Christopher Wray seeking confirmation, which while heavily redacted, was nevertheless recently produced.
“Insofar as Mr. Comey gave materially false testimony to Congress, it appears that he violated Rules 1.0(w), 3.3(a)(1), and 8.4 of the New York Rules of Professional Conduct,” wrote Clevenger in his grievance letter to the bar’s Departmental Disciplinary Committee.
Clevenger’s letter also sought to renew prior grievances he had filed against former Attorney General Loretta Lynch regarding the potential pressure and interference she exerted on Comey over the investigation and alleged destruction of evidence in the case, such as laptops possessed by Clinton associates.
Clevenger has also filed a separate grievance with the Maryland state bar and got a Circuit Court judge to order the association to open an investigation into three of those Clinton associates — David Kendall, Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson — who are alleged to have deleted emails and destroyed their laptops which contained pertinent information regarding Clinton’s email scandal, according to Zero Hedge.
Comey isn’t the only crooked politician in hot water right now. His master and puppeteer Hillary Clinton is at the center of her own little scandal this week after the FBI finally confirmed that she worked a scheme with the Russians to transfer 20% of our country’s uranium to Vladimir Putin’s companies in the United States in exchange for a hefty donation to her Clinton Foundation to the tune of $145 million.
Hillary’s blatant treason against the United States through her bribery, kickbacks, extortion, and money laundering with Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business should have been a big enough scandal to send this crooked woman to prison, but thanks to crooked individuals like Comey constantly blocking justice, she’s been able to get away with her crimes for years.
How epic would it be for Comey to not only lose his position with the FBI, but be prevented from practicing law for the remainder of his life? It will be interesting to see if Comey does wind up being disbarred, or if Hillary Clinton will swoop in and kill someone or pull some strings to save his career.
BREAKING: Warning Issued To All Americans Overnight Of ‘Mass Casualty’ Event Planned – Here’s What We Know
America might be distracted with the problems at hand, but we never forget that we are a country at war. No matter what happens on a day to day basis, we always remember that we as a nation were violently attacked over sixteen years ago and it’s a score that we haven’t settled yet because terrorism hasn’t been wiped out.
The rise of the politically correct movement and it’s acceptance of “non-radical Muslims” has somehow allowed them to worm their way into many places that they shouldn’t be, such as government. That is especially troubling, considering that the threat from the Islamic faith and it’s admonitions to kill is, is far from past.
In fact, according to top administration officials, the smaller attacks that we’ve been seeing in recent months are just a ploy to keep their members appeased while they plan a 9/11 scale attack. Daily Mail reports that one a U.S. security chief is warning not just all of us, but other countries as well, to be vigilant:
“Islamic State fanatics and other terror groups are planning another massive attack on the scale of 9/11, a top US security chief warned today.
Elaine Duke, Donald Trump’s acting Secretary of Homeland Security, said jihadists were using crude knife and van attacks to keep their members engaged and their finances flowing as they plot another ‘big explosion’ similar to the September 2001 atrocities.
Speaking at the US embassy in London, she said intelligence is pointing to extremists plotting to take down planes to inflict mass civilian casualties.”
While the United States hasn’t suffered an attack on the same scale as 9/11 since that day, we have watched the terrorists grow both in number and boldness across the globe. Our war on terror in the Middle East might have overthrown some open leaders, but for every open leader that threatens the United States and is eliminated, there are three more willing to take his place in the “holy war crusade.”
“Mrs. Duke said ISIS is currently in an ‘interim’ period focusing on a much bigger endgame.
The security chief, who has served three US presidents, said: ‘The terrorist organisations, be it ISIS or others, want to have the big explosion like they did on 9/11. They want to take down aircraft, the intelligence is clear on that.
‘However, in the interim, they need to keep their finances flowing and they need to keep their visibility high and they need to keep their members engaged, so they are using small plots and they are happy to have small plots.’
She added: ‘Creating terror is their goal and so a van attack, a bladed weapon attack, causes terror and continues to disrupt the world – but does not mean they’ve given up on a major aviation plot.’”
If you’ve gone through airport security lately, you know that the Transportation Security Administration has cracked down on possible threats in a big way since way back in 2001 when we were first faced with this problem. The issue at hand is that no matter how much we increase security, human ingenuity increases with it.
According to Duke, who is President Trump’s acting Secretary of Homeland Security, there’s even a distinct possibility that any plan could be blown up using a laptop, and that’s just one of the many possibilities that she mentioned.
“She said the free movement of goods and people means security has to be tightened in individual countries around the world.
She said: ‘The laptop is one of the many aviation threats, we will never be comfortable and we will always be evolving.
‘What we believe is that because of the movement of goods and people, we have to raise the baseline worldwide, we can’t only consider our borders.’ Mrs. Duke went on: ‘We think the level of terrorist threat against the United States too is extremely high.
‘I think that it is challenging for you because you have the proximities to other countries, the ease of movement from some of the terrorist safe havens is a little easier for you, but we feel the terrorist threat is very high in the United States.’”
The troubling thing about Duke’s statements isn’t “why or how,” but when. She believes that another large-scale attack is going to be coming to us soon. We might not see it coming. This is the big reason that the United States, and other free countries like it, need to crack down on potential terrorists
This is the big reason that the United States, and other free countries like it, need to crack down on potential terrorists entering our countries. We can only be free if that freedom is respected; if we don’t protect the freedom, it will be taken either by those who want to kill us or those who want to control us. Either way, the freedom of living in America is a precious gift that is in jeopardy every single day.
Here’s more from our source on what is know about the possible impending attacks:
“Asked how the US is tackling the threat of another 9/11-style atrocity, she said: ‘We have worked on some strong measures that we can’t talk about. We are trying to play the away game and that is working against them in their terrorist safe havens and homes.
‘We do have some terrorist groups on the move, you just saw the take-over of Raqqa and so if we can keep them declining and moving they have less time to sit and prepare.’
Mrs. Duke warned that the number of home-grown violent extremists, mostly inspired by terrorist organisations, is increasing in the US. She said the ability of IS militants to put terrorist propaganda on the internet will appeal more and more to extremists as they are pushed out of Syria and Iraq.
Mrs. Duke said web giants need to do more to detect extremist content online, and one way of doing this could be using the same technology used to identify people in passenger lists.
‘Terrorists are strong, they are adaptable and the terrorist threat is the highest it has been since pre-9/11. We have got to have every tool that’s possible,’ she added.
A total of 2,996 people were killed during the September 11 attacks, when al-Qaeda suicide attackers hijacked planes and flew them into the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington.
Earlier in the day, she met the British interior minister Amber Rudd to discuss how to force internet giants to do more to tackle terrorism ahead of the G7 summit.
Following the recent wave of attacks in Manchester and London, police chiefs have said the threat facing the UK is a ‘new norm’ that will not change.
Her chilling remarks came 24 hours after MI5 director general Andrew Parker warned Britain is facing its worst-ever terrorist threat in his first major speech since the UK was hit by a wave of attacks.
The British spy chief said it was taking terrorists just days to hatch plots as violent extremists exploit ‘safe spaces online’ to evade detection.
It is harder for the UK to protect itself because of its proximity to other countries and the ease of movement from terrorist safe havens, she suggested.”
