      Scalise was shot by a guy who Illinois trusted foster children to. He and his wife beat one girl, who later died of an OD. Another girl in their warm loving home allegedly committed suicide by burning herself alive. Illinois cops and coroner were too stupid to see if she was “helped.”.

      Illinois child protective services people put children in homes where there are sex offenders. The website howtobeyour owndetective.com has a post on the shooter being a foster parent, and another woman trying to save her grandson from being in a foster home with a family member reported for molesting two little girls.

      Abraham Lincoln is spinning in his grave.

        A neighbor’s much younger 1/2 sister who was with her or her 1/2 brother all summer, just got yanked back into the home where grandpa molests the children. Mother ‘claimed’ she ran away and was in places where a young girl should not be etc… She was threatening to have the girl tossed into Juvie. It is a complete crock since we are at least 12 miles from the nearest town.

        However the Judge believes Mom, not the 14 year old despite the fact the 16 year old went through the same routine and finally escaped and is now living with the same 1/2 brothers family. Mom just wants the welfare $$$ which is why she didn’t care where the girl was until school started again.
        The girl has tried to commit suicide more than once and has the scars where she has been cut. I would REALLY like to kick the crap out of these darn liberal judges!!!

  3. I have known Steve for 30 years starting at COMNAVRESFOR and continuing at SPAWARITC – he is a wonderful wonderful man – straight out of college he embodied the best humanity has to offer. He was the hardest worker on our team. He was the most generous dependable co-worker. I truly believe that he tries to hardest in the worst swamp that is DC. He is a brave warrior of the highest order. I am PROUD to call him friend.

    I hope someone asks him the following question:

    “Like you, John McCain has recently had a near-death experience. Are you going to double down on being an misanthropic a-hole like he did after his experience, or are you going to try to use your God-given bonus time on Earth to serve your fellow countrymen with honesty and integrity?”

    (The questioner can even follow up with a Brutus-like “I pause for a reply.”)

      I think I know what his answer would be…however, I also suspect he is too much of a “gentleman” to speak ill of another Congressman! But, I’m sure we all know what his answer would be!

      The difference between McCain and Scalise is for the world to see. Rep Scalise is a born again Christian. He is a witness for the world to see and has been already and will continue to be used by God among his peers to God’s glory.

    I’m glad our prayers here on this site has been answered regarding Scalise injuries, and him getting back on his feet. Priase God for that.

    This will now be awkward, but is Scalise a Trump Republican? I know nothing of him or his voting record. Is he a GOPe or one of us? This has me as a suspicious cat, since he is the GOP Majority Whip who works with Ryan and McCarthy. Could someone who has more info onScalise, enlighten me on this?

    This good man came very close to death….had it not been for his security detail and the doctor/ranger that gave first aid ie. tourniquet that allowed him to to even get to the hospital for emergency care. Many prayers were offered up to the Lord to save and heal this man. This has strengthened my faith, ( which I admit sometimes falls short of what I wish my faith level was ) This tells me….once again- that God does hear us in times of trouble. Thank you Dear Lord, for your healing hand on Steve…may you continue to heal our land, Bless our President and give wisdom and courage to our leaders to do your will. Amen.

  18. It was an attempted mass homicide and with clear evidence that he had logistical support. An absolute miracle that the balance of voting power in Congress was not completely disrupted that day, and that was the plan.

    Many jumped into the 1st base dugout and were unarmed. The shooter was making his way from third base, where he encountered the agents who heroically took up arms and shot back. Were there to be no unarmed presence, the first base dugout would have been a killing field, with Congressmen and Senators, all Republicans, as defenseless as folks in the Aurora movie theater.

    How many special elections would we then be looking at? Don’t think that wasn’t part of the plan.

    As useless and corrupt as the FBI leadership is, I would hope they are following the digital trail of the shooter to his network and who was providing the shooter with the support he needed to otherwise walk away from a business and normal life to prepare for this political moment.

    Of all of the silly things our Congress investigates, including our President, it’s all the more pathetic that they have not yet seen fit to investigate an attempted slaughter — of them!

    All Glory to God. Blessings to the Scalise family and to Scalise.

    I believe the Left wanted him and everybody on that field dead. I believe they want Donald Trump dead. They have no socially acceptable or regenerative answers to any problem facing America (most of which were caused by their poisonous and failed policies) and have become a movement that requires defamation and/or death to all who stand in the way of their total power and control.

      I think you are right about it being an oversight. I was suspicious enough to check his voting record and he has been 100 percent aligned with Trump according to the 538 statistics.

    Gonna turn from the friendly neighborhood atheist into the annoying neighborhood atheist for a few brief words. Do not forget the efforts and diligence of the doctors, surgeons and nurses that looked after Rep. Scalise. The fact that they managed to repair him in such a fantastic manner, and caught the infection early enough is a testament to their skill and dedication to their craft, especially concerning the infection.

    My grandfathers both withered away from infections contracted while in the hospital and another one almost took my father from me earlier this year. Infections can be terrifying, especially when not treated properly, or not noticed at an early enough stage.

    “Donald at Bat” (with apologies to Ernest Thayer and anyone
    who feels obligated to read this)

    The outlook isn’t brilliant for the Swampville Slime today.
    The Uniparty RINOs have more games they need to play.
    But Seth Rich died on first; Steve Scalise near did the same,
    and a sickly silence fell upon the patrons of the game.

    A straggling few got up to stop the Deep State, and the rest
    clung to Rule of Law, still deemed beneath the Clintons’ mess.
    They thought, if only Donald Trump could get a whack at that,
    we might just save our Country, now, with Donald at the bat.

    But O’ preceded Donald, as did Deep-State George, the Dubbya
    and the former was a commie and the latter ought to trouble ya.
    Upon the Deplorable Multitudes the Never Trumpers sat.
    There seemed but little chance of Donald getting to the bat.

    Maxine let fly a signal, to the lasting shame of all.
    McCain, the much despised, he held up funding for the wall.
    And when “impeachment” settled and we saw who had concurred,
    John had gone Banana; our World becoming Third.

    From 10 million Monster Voters, there a-rose a lusty yell!
    It rumbled through the pizza shops that, more than pizza, sell.
    It rocked the highest donor lists and knocked the Elites flat.
    Donald, yes our Donald, was advancing to the bat!

    There was ease in Donald’s manner as he put his men in place.
    There was pride in his appointments and subpoenas served post haste.
    And when responding to the cheers, he doffed his MAGA hat;
    no seditious, Swampy lout could doubt ‘twas Donald at the bat.

    The whole world’s eyes were on him as he fought the Lame Stream’s dirt.
    Ten million tongues applauded when he “Tweeted” on their shirt.
    Then writhing Ene-media cried Russia, Russia, Russia!
    While the DNC’s like the KGB, who’ll Beria after they crush ya.

    The Polyp Bureau’s lies, they came a-hurtling through the air,
    And Donald stood a-Tweetin’ in a haughty grandeur there.
    Close by the Sturdy Statesman, the spinnuendos sped.
    “That’ just my style”, said Donald. “Strike one” Mike Savage said.

    From the comments, black with venom, there rose up a muffled roar,
    like the beating of the brainwaves on a bitter, British shore.
    “Block him! Block Mike Savage!” shouted someone in the land.
    And it’s likely they’d have blocked him had not Donald raised his hand.

    With a smile of Christian charity, the Donald’s visage shone.
    He put a whoopie cushion on the Special Counsel’s throne.
    He Tweeted to the Presstitutes; once more the rumors flew,
    like, “The White House is in chaos!”, so Ann Coulter said, “Strike two!”

    “Fraud!” cried all the doubters, and Mulvaney answered fraud.
    One wilting look from Wilberine and the audience was awed.
    We saw the T-Rex’ face grow stern, we saw Mnuchin strain
    And we knew that Donald wouldn’t let those lies go by again.

    Now Bob Mueller holds the ball, ‘cuz Sessions let it go.
    And now, the Left shall lunch on Nothingburgers made of crow.
    But the smile’s gone from Donald’s lips. His jaw is clenched and firm,
    to deep clean out the Deep State and make the traitors squirm.

    Somewhere in Flyover Land, the sun is shining bright.
    The AGs there ain’t playin’, and there, the hearts are light.
    And there, the good men laugh, un-molested children shout,
    But there is no joy in Swampville as The Donald drains it out.

    What a dichotomy. The affection that those in the House have for each other (at least on this occasion) versus the ideology held across the aisle that drives such violence. Scalise is a man of much sterner stuff than I, to keep to the high road.

    Imagine the hysterical apoplexy of the US Media if a politically motivated nutter had shot a Democrat, a Black Woman Muslim Democrat Representative.

    The climate of hate constructed by the US Media actually shows they are desperate. Deviation from the cultural neo marxist line will not be tolerated.
