    Steve Scalise suffered a physical assault on June 14 as a result of being shot by a liberal Bernie Sanders supporter. However, few know that three years ago Scalise politely endured a verbal assault by enraged Hollywood liberals in the entertainment business. It was an example of the increasing rejection of civil discourse by the left leading ultimately to the recent baseball field violence we saw a few days ago. A June 16 Hollywood Reporter article by Paul Bond reveals the incident at the Los Angeles home of pollster Frank Luntz who held a soiree in the hopes of bringing together...

    Conservative rocker Ted Nugent, who once told a concert crowd that Barack Obama should “suck on [his] machine gun,” has had a change of heart about violent rhetoric following Wednesday’s shooting attack on Republican members of Congress. “I have reevaluated my approach, even though I’m a street fighter,” Mr. Nugenttold WABC radio hosts Curtis Sliwa and Eboni Williams. “I’m from Detroit, we used language in the street. We used certain harsh terms. “But at the tender age of 69, my wife has convinced me that I just can’t use those harsh terms. I cannot and I will not,” he said....

    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...

    RAHWAY — A longtime Democratic operative from Union County has responded to the Wednesday shooting of a congressman by calling for a “hunt” of Republicans. James Devine posted several messages on Facebook and Twitter following the Alexandra, Virginia, shooting of U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise and several others by a gunman with a history of violence and of making online rantings against Republican officials and their policies.

    After Republican Rep. Steve Scalise was shot yesterday, many liberals on twitter CELEBRATED and said things like,“The Only Good Fascist is a Dead One.”“That’s a Shame but babies blown to bits at Sandy Hook was worse and Scalise takes money from the @NRA” “If the shooter has a serious health condition then is taking potshots at the GOP leadership considered self defense?” “If KKK support Steve Scalise dies, the shooter deserves a holiday, true leadership. Now the trumps, kush, & miller need to be transitioned.” Is it any wonder? The most prominent liberals in America regularly accuse conservatives of being...

    Hollywood has issued dire predictions and hysterical warnings about Donald Trump ever since the Republican businessman first announced his candidacy for the presidency in June 2015. But the level of vitriol and violent rhetoric against now-President Trump has increased substantially in recent weeks, from comedian Kathy Griffin’s now-famous shock “beheading” photograph to Shakespeare in the Park’s not-at-all-subtle “assassination” of Trump on a stage in New York City’s Central Park. Unfortunately, Griffin and the director of Julius Caesar are not anomalies in Hollywood; actors, writers, directors, and other celebrities have fantasized about using violence against Trump, his supporters, and other GOP...

    No sooner did news break that a gunman shot Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) were left-wing Twitter users celebrating the attack — in which two Capitol Police were also shot, as well as a congressional staffer, and possibly more.   Activist and media personality, Tariq Nasheed, appeared to indicate support for the shooting on Twitter:   Author Malcom Harris, "joked"(?) that the shooter may have simply been acting in self-defense: Sonia Gupta, a former prosecutor from Scalise's home state of Louisiana, offered up this:   Twitter user "Leon Trotsky" wrote that Scalise's shooting was "karma" for his "tea bag" beliefs:   Twitter user "Charles Oakley"...

    The controversy over Kathy Griffin holding up a bloodied severed head of Donald Trump — an action which has led to her removal from CNN's New Year's Eve programming — reportedly spilled into the President's family when TMZ reported that the Trumps' 11-year son "Barron was in front of the TV watching a show when the news came on and he saw the bloody, beheaded image." TMZ says: "We're told he panicked and screamed, 'Mommy, Mommy!'" I was hoping against hope that the level of "discourse" hasn't sunk to the point where people who should know better would start attacking...

    My own view is that Donald and Ivanka and Uday and Qusay are genuinely bad human beings and that the American public has made a grave error in entrusting its highest office to this cast of American Psycho extras. That a major political party was captured by these cretins suggests that its members are not worthy of the blessings of this republic. . . .

    Looking back on a Chicago childhood in the 1940s I was at a pro-life meeting in Detroit in the late 1970s, with a biologist debunking the “population problem.” He pointed out that if everyone in the world moved to Texas, there would be 1,500 square feet for every man, woman, and child. That was the size of the footprint of his house in San Francisco. Texas, with that influx of population, would still be less dense than San Francisco; and San Francisco had many open places for parks and tennis courts. When it was my turn to speak, I remarked...

    Twitter is a great place for journalists to vent and to leak their liberal bias for all to see. And exactly that happened Tuesday night when CBS Boston Freelance Writer David Leavitt tweeted, “’Trump died sleeping’ #CalmMeDownIn3Words.” Leavitt’s tweet has garnered over 900 retweets, more than 2,300 likes, and almost 2,000 responses, many of them negative. "Trump died sleeping" #CalmMeDownIn3Words — David Leavitt (@David_Leavitt) November 30, 2016 As outrageous has Leavitt’s tweet was, CBS Boston’s public relations kneejerk reaction was flat out ridiculous. The local news outlet responded to more than 100 irate twitter users, first proclaiming, “Mr. Leavitt is...

    MSNBC and NBC News anchor Chuck Todd ripped the Donald Trump campaign, the Hillary Clinton campaign, and even the media Friday in the wake of the public bickering and finger-pointing that took place at a post-election seminar at Harvard University. Todd noted that the Harvard conference had historically been cordial, and a place for incisive and illuminating election postmortems. Thursday, however, the event was marred with a shouting match between representatives of the two major campaigns and arguments between the media and political operatives.

    TUALATIN, Ore. — A Tualatin couple has been subject to borderline harassment for displaying the last name of a presidential candidate on their cars' license plates. Nine years ago Brian Trump ordered special Oregon vanity plates. --SNIP-- The intimidating behavior by other drivers began about 18 months ago, Trump said. "It took me a minute to figure out. I didn't cut this person off, [I] used my blinker, I'm not like driving crazy," Trump laughed. "Someone goes you're not a Trump supporter are you? And I was like, it's my last name!" Trump says he made the connection, but continued...

    I think that soon after the Convention, Trump can make history and rally everyone around him with a Civility Speech. He needs to announce it, act like its gonna be Yuge, then deliver a speech to every American about civility. Some of the content should be: - saying that he hopes everyone is either watching, or will watch it later on YouTube, even if they don’t like HIM because this is about all of us, not him - saying that American civility will be a bully pulpit focus in his first 100 days in office, but that we can't wait...

Tuesday's event will include former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge and Allegheny College President James H. Mullen Jr. "These two political giants – one from the left and one from the right – have demonstrated throughout the course of their distinguished careers the benefits of civil behavior, and who showed remarkable moments of civility during recent presidential campaigns," the college said in a statement when the announcement was initially made in April.

In one particularly nasty tweet, which has since been deleted, the 68-year-old Jaws star described the billionaire real estate magnate as “a small-d*cked prick,” who had celebrity “whores” supporting his White House run.

    During Starbucks 2016 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, Starbucks chairman and ceo Howard Schultz expanded on a question he posed two years ago: What is the role and responsibility of a for-profit company? Today, Schultz asked partners (employees), shareholders and thousands who watched the live web broadcast: “What is the role and responsibility of all of us, as citizens?” Schultz said he has “struggled for weeks to find the right words to express the pain I feel in my heart about where America is headed and the cloud hanging over the American people.” And he said there are times when he’s...

    Hillary Clinton kept her eye on the general election during her South Carolina primary victory speech, bashing GOP front-runner Donald Trump right off the bat. "Despite what you hear, we don’t need to make America great again – America hasn’t stopped being great. But we do need to make America whole again," she said Saturday in South Carolina, mocking Trump's slogan. "Instead of building walls, we need to be tearing down barriers. We need to show, by everything we do, that we really are in this together.” The former secretary of State appeared passionate as she worked to rally her...

    A Purdue University staff member is being investigated after he allegedly threatened to rape pro-life women during an online debate about the campus pro-life club's recent campaign. The Purdue Students for Life group has been facing a heavy backlash this week after its members put up posters around campus that focused on how the abortion industry targets black women and their unborn babies for abortions. In coordination with Black History Month, the campaign posters read "Hands Up, Don't Abort" and "Black Children are an Endangered Race" and included the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter. On Monday, a small group of pro-abortion students and...
