It is beginning to become difficult to tell when we’re going to hit the peak of liberal lunacy

If we allow what happens in our legislative halls to incite violence and install hatred in the nation’s people, we will have truly lost the reigns of our out of control government.

It is beginning to become difficult to tell when we’re going to hit the peak of liberal lunacy here in the United States.

The election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of these United States set off some inborn, viral circumstance in the liberal left, who have overtly radicalized over the course of the last two years. We’ve seen assassination attempts aimed at both the President and at members of Congress, as well as a veritable plethora of morbid “art” that depicts the fate of the elected Commander in Chief streaming throughout the media gauntlet.

Now, that bizarre and vitriolic sentiment is reaching Capitol Hill in earnest, with one democratic representative taking things far too far.

In the audio recording from a community prayer breakfast, you’ll hear Rep. Steve Cohen speaking to an audience about President Trump endorsing Rep. Marsha Blackburn. Cohen makes the claim that he hopes Blackburn has jumped off of a bridge…the crowd laughs.

“The big orange president, that’s not somebody from Knoxville…He’s going to come down here and endorse Marsha Blackburn. ‘Cause Marsha Blackburn, if he says, ‘jump off the Harahan Bridge,’ she’ll jump off the Harahan Bridge. I wish he’d say that.”

Not okay, folks.  Not okay at all.

Political differences don’t change the fact that we are a nation of human beings, created equal.  If we allow what happens in our legislative halls to incite violence and install hatred in the nation’s people, we will have truly lost the reigns of our out of control government.

Trump Weighs in on Cleveland Baseball Name Change…and It’s Not Pretty

The former President was NOT happy!

Donald Trump, like a great many conservatives around the nation, isn’t all that thrilled with the way in which our national culture is changing.  Of course, this isn’t terribly surprising given that this is the nature of conserving, to allow things to remain the same or to work to bring the nation back to the way it was. So, almost predictably, Trump had plenty to say about the recent change announced by the Cleveland Indians baseball team. In a statement, Trump wrote that he is a “FORMER” baseball fan and said “a small group of people, with absolutely crazy ideas and policies, is forcing these changes to destroy our culture and heritage.” The name change came after years of protests from Native American groups and baseball fans. The former President had a far different opinion than many. Trump’s statement said he thought the name was an “honor.” However, the Lake Erie Native American Council released a statement supporting the team’s new name, WTOL reports. “We are pleased the Cleveland baseball team took a comprehensive approach to listen and learn and show it is possible to take steps toward change,” the statement read. The name change came just months after the Washington Redskins dropped their own mascot to temporarily become the “Washington Football Team”, just until a new moniker could be decided upon.

Tests Show QAnon Shaman is ‘Mentally Ill’, According to His Own Lawyer

But is this all just a part of a broader legal strategy?

From the moment that Jacob Chansley set foot on our television screens, we knew that we’d be talking about him for some time into the future. Chansley, known more commonly as the “QAnon Shaman”, was the iconic character who participated in the January 6th insurrection shirtless, with his face painted, and wearing a large fur headdress adorned with bison horns. Now, as Chansley faces charges in the storming of the Capitol, his lawyers are trying a rather tricky defense:  They’re claiming that the Shaman doesn’t possess full control over his faculties.  In an interview, defense lawyer Albert Watkins said that officials at the federal Bureau of Prisons, or BOP, have diagnosed his client Jacob Chansley with transient schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety. The BOP’s findings, which have not yet been made public, suggest Chansley’s mental condition deteriorated due to the stress of being held in solitary confinement at a jail in Alexandria, Virginia, Watkins said. “As he spent more time in solitary confinement … the decline in his acuity was noticeable, even to an untrained eye,” Watkins said in an interview on Thursday. But is this all just legal maneuvering? Watkins said authorities will need to determine how Chansley can get access to the treatment he needs to “actively participate in his own defense.” Pleading guilty to a charge negates the need for a trial, but defendants still have to be declared mentally competent to do so. Watkins said the BOP’s evaluation of his client did not declare Chansley to be mentally incompetent, and he does not expect Chansley to be ordered to undergo what is known as competency restoration treatment. Watkins turned heads early on in his role at attorney for the Shaman, after making derogatory remarks about his own client’s mental health, using phrases that are deemed unprintable…
