Dems Blocked Gun Control Testimony from Attempted Assassination Victim

We pay these people too much money to act this petty.

We pay our elected officials a whole lot of money to supposedly keep this nation running.

This gives us a bit of a vested interest in making sure that they are crossing their t’s and dotting their i’s.  Remember, the average salary in Congress is 174,000 taxpayer dollars per year.  If these folks can’t get it right, they have got to go.

That is why we bring to your attention the story of a congressional gun control committee who outright refused to hear testimony from attempted assassination victim and US House Representative Steve Scalise of Louisiana.

House Republican Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., said Wednesday that Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee refused to let him testify at a hearing on gun violence about his experience as a victim of the congressional baseball practice shooting two years ago. The move infuriated his fellow Republicans.

Scalise told Fox News that he found out over the weekend that Democrats had chosen not to allow his testimony at the hearing –“Preventing Gun Violence: A Call to Action” — something he said is a courtesy traditionally extended to any lawmaker who wishes to speak.

Scalise has stern admonishment for the democrats on the subject.

“I thought it outrageous that they want to try to silence this message, because in the end I’m still going to get my message out. They can’t silence this issue,” he said.

Scalise was shot and injured in June 2017. But despite his experience and perspective, he said that committee Democrats said he would not able to testify — although he could submit written testimony for the record, which he did.

“I was surprised, because it’s unprecedented,” he said. “In the past, when we were in charge on the Republican side, if the Democrats selected among one of their witnesses to be a sitting member of Congress, we always gave them the courtesy of testifying in a proper setting, and we were asking for that same courtesy — and they denied it.”

Scalise’s shooter, a radical leftist who once worked for the Bernie Sanders campaign, took aim at the GOP charity baseball team just two weeks to the day after Kathy Griffin released images from her controversial photoshoot, in which she envisioned herself having beheaded President Donald Trump.

George Conway Sets Twitter Ablaze with Ridiculous Trump Nickname

George Conway is at it again, and this time he’s using the 5th grade tactic of name-calling.

George Conway

By week’s end, the President was facing opposition from nearly all ends of the political spectrum, as controversies continue to swirl around his first term. For many democrats, the redacted version of the Mueller report was inadequate, and not because of the redactions themselves.  Instead, concerns over Robert Mueller’s lengthy outlining of possible obstruction of justice infractions has caught their eye, seeing this new avenue of thought as a possible catalyst for nullifying the will of the people in the 2016 election. Naturally, this has led to a bevy of information requests, subpoenas, and threats from the left side of the aisle, aimed directly at the White House. For their part, the Trump administration is doing everything in their power to move on, and get back to the business of governing our fine nation.  Trump has even commanded his subordinates to simply ignore Congressional subpoenas – something that puts those working for the President between a rock and a hard place. The strife isn’t only coming from Congress, however, as the husband of one of the President’s most trusted advisers weighs in as well, resorting to name-calling late in the week. George Conway, husband to White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, went off on a Twitter rant Thursday morning attacking President Donald Trump, bestowing him with a new nickname: “Deranged Donald”. The conservative lawyer — and high-profile Trump critic — was set off by a report that the president promoted a baseless accusation that the United Kingdom helped the Obama administration spy on his campaign — just one day after accepting an invitation for a state visit to Britain from Queen Elizabeth II. “Deranged Donald is at back at it again,” Conway wrote. “Deranged Donald can do things like this and it’s not even the top of the news, because it…

BOMBSHELL: New Report to Show Obama Interfered MORE Than Putin In 2016 Election

Now that President Trump has been cleared of “colluding” with Russia during the 2016 election, more and more information points to the Obama White House’s wrongdoing. It looks like a new report, set to drop in May or June, will show that Barack Obama interfered more in the 2016 presidential election that Russian President Vladimir Putin. Former US Attorney Joe diGenova recently appeared on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.” He noted, “The Horowitz report is coming out in May or early June. There’s another report that everyone has forgotten about involving James Comey alone. That will be out in two weeks. That report is going to be a bombshell. It is going to open up the investigation on a very high note and there are going to be criminal referrals in it.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWH8i5jQNPM MORE: BREAKING: FBI agents Joe Pientka and Mike Gaeta, along with DOJ official Stu Evans, are figuring prominently as witnesses in IG Horowitz’s investigation of department FISA abuses. The findings in the forthcoming IG report are said to be “devastating.” https://twitter.com/paulsperry_/status/1121483182250110981?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1121483182250110981&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F04%2Fbreaking-update-findings-in-the-upcoming-ig-report-are-said-to-be-devastating-obama-interfered-in-election-more-than-vlad-putin%2F DEVELOPING: It is now looking as though there is more evidence that Obama had a heavier hand in interfering in the 2016 election than Putin https://twitter.com/paulsperry_/status/1121507179385819136?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1121507179385819136&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F04%2Fbreaking-update-findings-in-the-upcoming-ig-report-are-said-to-be-devastating-obama-interfered-in-election-more-than-vlad-putin%2F Businessman Donald Trump was thinking about the idea of a Trump Tower in Russia in 2015, 2016-ish. Naturally, some paired this deal (that was never made) to Trump working with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton. Conservative rock star Mark Levin, lawyer and radio host, explains the legal consequences President Trump could be facing. Hint: sorry liberals. Listen: https://soundcloud.com/conservativereview/levin-shouldnt-we-be-cheering-that-the-president-is-guilty-of-nothing “People keep saying, ‘What are the legal implications for Trump?’ There are none. Zero. There’s no legal implication; there’s no legal jeopardy, period. Moreover, in all this so-called reporting and analysis by these phony experts, where did President Trump collude,…
