Just hours after a gunman opened fire on congressional Republicans during a practice baseball game in Virginia on Wednesday, House Speaker Paul Ryan delivered an impassioned speech that called for unity despite partisan differences.

“We are all horrified by this dreadful attack on our friends and on our colleagues and those who serve and protect this Capitol,” Ryan said.

“We are united. We are united in our shock, we are united in our anguish. An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us,” Ryan said, prompting the crowd to stand and applaud.

“You know, every day we come here to test and to challenge each other. We feel so deeply about the things that we fight for and the things that we believe in, at times our emotions can clearly get the best of us. We’re all imperfect,” Ryan said.

“But we do not shed our humanity when we enter this chamber. For all the noise and all the fury, we are one family,” the speaker said.

Ryan also mentioned a widely-shared photo of Democratic congressional baseball team members praying for Republicans, which embodied the unity Ryan spoke about.

Ryan also praised the efforts of the Capitol Police.

“It is clear to me, based on various eyewitness accounts, that without these two heroes, agent [David] Bailey and agent [Krystal] Griner, many lives would have been lost,” he said.

Watch Ryan’s comments below:

Ryan, who hasn’t been viewed very favorably by those on either side of the aisle, nevertheless silenced Americans with this poignant truth.

This shooting should serve as a wake up call to our nation that a house divided against itself cannot stand.” We can only hope and pray this attack isn’t a foreshadowing of more politically-motivated violence.

Jihadis Ask, ‘Are You A Christian?’ Before Killing You. #Resist Asks, ‘Are You A Republican?’


Their hate looks pretty similar, doesn’t it? Jihadis ask if you’re a Christian before deciding to kill you. The Liberal murderer asked are they Republicans?

It’s widely reported that the Jackwagon Bernie supporter that shot up the Republican baseball practice asked whether they were Republican or Democrat before hunting them like the coward he was.

That story has a familiar ring to it…(Ok, one BESIDES the leftist Family Research Council shooter.)

This one.

Coptic Christians describe bus attack in Egypt: ‘Even the little children were targets’

Here are a couple of paragraphs:

After the militants boarded the bus, they asked survivors of the first round of gunfire to “either recite the Islamic shahada creed, live as practicing Muslims, or be killed,” said Nadia Shokry, 54, who was shot three times.

Defying their attackers, the passengers began to pray. “The more we prayed for Christ, the angrier they became and started shooting again and more violently,” Boshra said.

“We told them that we are Christians and we will die Christians,” Adly said as she clutched a cross that a monk had given her at the hospital.

The attackers targeted the male passengers and then began confiscating gold jewelry, money and mobile phones from the female survivors, before shooting at them, too, and running away.

“I begged my attacker to stop after he shot me the first three times. He told me to shut up or he would shoot me in the heart,” Shokry said. She watched as the militants killed her husband, Samuel, 53, her son Mina, 30, and her 18-month-old granddaughter, Maroska, the youngest victim of the attack.

Sound familiar?

For a group that keeps calling Trump supporters ‘Nazis’… which side is actually violent?

CLASH POLL: Who’s MORE Violent – Liberals OR Conservatives?

Is it really even CLOSE?

When Gabby Giffords was shot, they blamed Sarah Palin and the Tea Party. When Republican Whip Steve Scalise was one of several Republicans shot… they blamed Trump.

But that’s the Media (D)’s opinion. What about yours?

It’s because of violent language… they said.

Maybe the problem could be from the methodical dehumanizing of political opponents.

The dead guy is personally and SOLELY responsible for his actions.

But if people are going to complain about over-heated rhetoric and violence
? Look around.

Groups like Antifa and BAMN are not rhetorically violent but PHYSICALLY violent. Cheering when they trash the liberties of political rivals.

In the election, we saw people blaming Trump for violent protests. But it came to light that Bernie’s supporters and Hillary’s supporters, not Trump supporters were doing the attacking. It came to light that there was ORCHESTRATED violence on the part of Hillary’s surrogates, trying to implicate Trump.

We see ‘Antifa’ crowds hitting people over the head with skateboards.

We see University Profs hitting strangers over the head with bike locks.

We have makeshift grenades made out of wine bottles tossed into crowds.

We have seen Berkley BURN so that one political side would NOT be heard.

Here is a screen shot of some of the vultures cheering the shootings.

Let’s get a closer look at one in particular… and make her famous.

Her Twitter feed went dark… but not before we got a screen grab of it!

So let’s ask the question:

Violence And Intimidation Against Republicans Are Becoming The New Normal


Reported by Photo of Peter Hasson Peter Hasson | Associate Editor | 9:59 PM 05/14/2017

In one of the most recent incidents, police in Tennessee charged a woman with felony reckless endangerment on Thursday for allegedly trying to run Republican Congressman David Kustoff off the road after a town hall. The woman, Wendi Wright, was reportedly enraged over Kustoff’s support for the American Health Care Act and screamed at the congressman and his aide, striking his car windows and reaching inside the vehicle.

https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fweakleycountysheriffdept%2Fposts%2F723680541137636&width=500

The same day that Tennessee police charged Wright for reckless endangerment, police in North Dakota escorted an enraged man from another town hall after he became physical with Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer over his support for the GOP Obamacare replacement. “Will the rich benefit from, if the health care is destroyed, do the rich get a tax break? Yes or no?” the man shouted, before shoving cash down the congressman’s collar. “There you go, take it.”

CNN’s Poppy Harlow downplayed the incident, saying the man was “showing his disgust” with Cramer.

The day before that, a Huffington Post article that showed “how to really turn up the heat on elected officials” went viral. The author, Michaelangelo Signorile, called on protesters to harass Republicans at dinner, when they’re out shopping and even at home. Societal norms for the basic levels of decency one should afford political opponents, Signorile argued, no longer apply to liberals.

“It’s time to move beyond polite protests within specified boundaries. It’s time to escalate the expression of our outrage and our anger in a massive way,” he wrote. (RELATED: In Their Own Words: Anti-Trump ‘Resistance’ Leaders Say They Want To Make America ‘Ungovernable’)

“Starting today and from here on, no elected official ― certainly those in the GOP defending and supporting Trump on a variety of issues, for example ― should be able to sit down for a nice, quiet lunch or dinner in a Washington, DC eatery or even in their own homes. They should be hounded by protestors everywhere, especially in public ― in restaurants, in shopping centers, in their districts, and yes, on the public property outside their homes and apartments, in Washington and back in their home states.”

Signorile’s article has already been shared more than 29,000 times.

Political violence has been increasingly common as left-wing organizations have whipped up mobs against Republicans and supporters of the president. (RELATED: Leaked Audio Reveals Anti-Trump Forces Manufacturing Hostile Town Hall)

A popular parade in Portland, Oregon last month was cancelled after threats of violence against one of the groups participating — a local Republican organization.

An email warning parade organizers promised 200 or more protesters would rush into the parade and drag the Republican marchers out, if that’s what it took to keep them from participating. “You have seen how much power we have downtown and that the police cannot stop us from shutting down roads so please consider your decision wisely,” the email warned. Portland has been a site for organized left-wing protests, which have often turned into violent riots. (RELATED: Leader Of Portland Anti-Trump Protests Charged With Sexually Abusing A Minor)

The threat was sent from an email address registered with RiseUp.Net, an organization that is open about “providing communication and computer resources to allies engaged in struggles against capitalism and other forms of oppression.”

The Oregon threat was credible in part because Berkeley, California has become a literal political battlefield on multiple occasions now, after far-left groups have resorted to violence to keep Pro-Trump speakers (or, in one case, free speech marchers who happened to be Trump supporters) from appearing in public.

Pro-Trump speaker Milo Yiannopoulos had his speech at the University of California-Berkeley cancelled after rioters set the campus ablaze in order to keep him from speaking. (RELATED: ‘INFERNO’ — Milo Speech Cancelled After Rioters Set Campus Ablaze [VIDEO])

Political commentator Ann Coulter, who staunchly supported Trump during his presidential campaign, had her speech at UC Berkeley cancelled after the protest groups vowed a repeat performance of the Milo riots. (RELATED: Documents Tie Berkeley Riot Organizers To Pro-Pedophilia Group NAMBLA)

A North Carolina GOP office was even firebombed a month before the election, and a building adjacent to it was spray painted with graffiti: “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else.”

Shortly before the election, a female high school student was attacked after declaring her support for Trump. A fellow female student took the girl’s glasses off and punched her in the face, saying, “Fuck you, you bitch.”

Olivia Corn, president of Cornell University’s College Republicans, said she was physically assaulted the night after Trump won the election. “Fuck you, racist bitch, you support a racist party,” her attacker reportedly said. Ironically, Corn said she was “not Donald Trump’s biggest fan,” and added that she “was saddened that I was not afforded the same respect that I offer others.”

A Maryland high school student wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat after the election was punched and kicked by students protesting Trump after he started arguing with them.

Similarly, police in Florida arrested a 17-year-old high school student after he punched a classmate for carrying a Trump sign at school.

“It definitely had a political motivation,” said Lt. Mike Bandish of the Palm Bay Police Department. “The boy was carrying a Trump sign and walked into the gym. The other boy punched him in the face.”

GOP Effort To Rescind Obama Regulation Fails After 3 Republican Senators Join Ranks With Democrats


URL of the original posting site: http://www.westernjournalism.com/gop-effort-rescind-obama-regulation-fails-3-republican-senators-join-ranks-democrats/

Three Senate Republicans joined ranks with Democrats on Wednesday to reject overturning an Obama-era regulation limiting methane emission from oil and gas drilling. Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., John McCain, R-Ariz., and Susan Collins, R-Maine, joined ranks with Senate Democrats, leaving only 49 votes in support of revoking the Bureau of Land Management rule, two votes shy of the 51 votes needed.

While Graham and Collins had previously made public their intention to vote against the measure, McCain’s came as a surprise.

Vice President Mike Pence had traveled to the Capitol in the event his vote was needed to break a tie vote in the Senate.

The Obama administration’s Methane and Waste Prevention Rule is primarily intended to reduce the waste of methane gasses released during oil and gas production.

“Between 2009 and 2015, oil and gas producers on public and Indian lands vented, flared and leaked about 462 billion cubic feet of natural gas. That’s enough gas to supply about 6.2 million households for a year,” states a fact sheet on the regulation.

Wasted natural gas amounts to $23 million annually in royalty revenue for the Federal government and States that share it, according to a 2010 Government Accountability Office report. In addition to cost saving, the regulation was also intended to help the environment. Methane, the primary component in natural gas, is about 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide and accounts for nine percent of U.S. gas emissions.

Supporters of the regulation say the benefits of lowering waste during the natural gas production process is a win-win for both sides of the political aisle.

“This rule unites people who care about a traditional set of issues related to air quality, but also people who don’t want to see the American government waste resources and tax dollars,” said Chris Saeger of the Western Values Project.

However, opponents of the rule, such as the Independent Petroleum Association of America, say the regulation is outside the authority of the Bureau of Land Management and imposes “costly and duplicative” regulations on the producers of natural gas.

The IPAA says the best way to reduce waste during natural gas production is to increase pipeline capacities, not more government mandates.

“IPAA continues to educate Senate offices on the costly and duplicative burden that the [Bureau of Land Management] rule, which is essentially an air quality rule and is outside the congressionally given authority of the BLM, places on U.S. independent producers’ businesses,” said Neal Kirby, the spokesperson for IPAA.

Senate Republicans had hoped to revoke the methane rule under the Congressional Review Act, which prevents the government from making a similar rule in the future that is “substantially the same” as the one it overturned.

“I think we can replace it with a better reg, rather than a CRA,” Graham said in March of the resolution.

Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Uta, chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, said Graham’s reasoning for voting against the methane rule change was ignorant.

“Sen. Graham doesn’t live in the West, and doesn’t understand these issues, clearly,” Bishop said.

Following the failure of the legislative branch to repeal the Obama regulation, President Trump’s Interior Department still has the option to repeal the methane rule through an exhaustive rulemaking process.
