WATCH: One Year After Crazed Gunman Nearly Took His Life, Steve Scalise Makes Incredible First Play at Congressional Baseball Game

There was not a dry eye in the house.

There was not a dry eye in the house.

One year ago, a crazed gunman, driven by vitriol towards Trump and the Republican party, drove from Illinois to Washington D.C. with his SKS rifle to open fire on a handful of Republican congressmen as they practiced for the upcoming congressional baseball game.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise nearly lost his life that day, saved by the heroic rescue of two capitol police who took out the gunman and were themselves injured in the process.

On Thursday, after a harrowing year of recovery that Scalise can only describe as a miraculous, he entered the field for the Congressional baseball game once again.

And made the play of the evening–on the very first play.

Western Journal reports:

In a moment that appeared to be orchestrated by God, the Louisianan fielded a grounder hit directly to him and threw the runner out at first base on the very first play of the game.

Scalise rose to his feet and pointed to heaven, in a gesture clearly meant to give all the glory to the Almighty.

The congressman was quickly mobbed by his teammates, and the crowd on hand at Nationals Park rose to its feet and cheered.

“To be able to walk back out on this field again a year later is an incredible feeling,” Scalise told reporters at the game.

“To think that after nine surgeries and everything I get to be back out here with my colleagues, God bless America,” he added. “I almost lost my life, and through God’s grace and the marvels of medicine I’m here.”

Scalise has not ceased to praise the Lord for his recovery, attributing every moment of survival, from when the bullet first struck him on that fateful day, to the power of prayer.

“I’m a living example that miracles really do happen,” he has said more than once, including his first day back on the House floor, earlier this year.

His return to the field was impressive, considering he still walks with a cane. He was escorted to his position at Second Base by the Capitol Hill police officers who saved his life that day, Crystal Griner and David Bailey, who received the Medal of Valor from President Trump last year for their heroic actions that day. Griner and Bailey also threw pitches at the game.

The glory Scalise gives to the Lord is inspiring and galvanizing for the faithful across the nation that the power of prayer and faith in the Lord can turn anything–even the sometimes violent divide that runs down the middle of our country right now–into a testament of His power and might.

Let’s pray for our nation as fervently as Scalise prayed for recovery so that we can all be strengthened and healed, together, for the sake of our incredible nation.

Hail to the chief!

President Trump may no longer work from behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t planning something big to keep the MAGA movement alive. Here’s the latest on 45, via Washington Examiner: WEST PALM BEACH, Florida — Former President Donald Trump gave nothing away about his plans for life after the White House as he dined with friends at his golf club on Friday. “We’ll do something, but not just yet,” he told the Washington Examiner as he sat at his regular table in the Grill Room of the Trump International Golf Club. An aide to the former chief executive then swooped in and swiftly, but politely, ended the interaction. CONTINUED: Trump has let it be known that he is considering another run for the White House in 2024. Reports also suggested that he was considering setting up a new party, the Patriot Party, as a vehicle to run for office. He brought a small staff with him to Florida. They are working out of the Mar-a-Lago club as they begin to ramp up operations. Here’s some random noise from anti-Trump, anti-free speech, anti-American Twitter… https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1352735841366335488 https://twitter.com/cabot_phillips/status/1352734530524729344 https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1352723083300401152 https://twitter.com/TwitchyTeam/status/1352752362604146689 https://twitter.com/WSJ/status/1349493316468023303

AOC: I Didn’t Attend Inauguration Because I Didn’t ‘Feel Safe’ Around Republicans

UNITY!

If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez loved history (or her country), she would’ve been in attendance at the inauguration on January 20 – however fraudulent it may be. You’d think someone like AOC would want to see history being made when Kamala Harris was sworn-in as the first female vice president – however fraudulent it may be, also. Instead, the loudmouth from the Bronx decided to push her style of “unity” by saying Republicans are dangerous. Swell. From The Daily Wire: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said during an interview on Thursday night that part of the reason that she did not attend President Joe Biden’s inauguration was because she does not feel safe around Republicans. “You knew that people would ask why you weren’t there,” CNN host Chris Cuomo said. “This was a good cause, from your perspective, of dealing with your constituency. But this was supposed to be a show of force, and unity, and you weren’t there. Explain it.” She blabbered, “Yeah, you know, I think we also had very real security concerns as well, as you mentioned earlier. We still don’t yet feel safe around other Members of Congress and…” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfnj-mjqJf8&feature=emb_title
