Trying to pretend it isn’t there is getting rather difficult.

IBT: As Steve Scalise Shooting Shows, Left’s Rhetoric Of Anger And Hate Has Gotten Out Of Hand – “This is how Trump Derangement Syndrome looks. But, sadly, such talk is not at all unusual on the left. It’s what happens when a political movement eschews honest debate and instead begins violently fantasizing in public about the demise of its opposition in the starkest, most eliminationist terms possible.”

Washington Times: A shooting war on Republicans – “Trump Derangement Syndrome leads to an attempted assassination.” Reaping what you sow …

Millions of Democrats, disappointed with the results of the 2016 elections, have built their lives around despising the president. It isn’t healthy for the republic, it isn’t healthy for those afflicted and it won’t be healthy for those who die at the hands of assassins.

Though neither Mr. Sanders nor any other Democrat is responsible for the attack on the Republican congressmen, but they are responsible for creating the current partisan climate, where anything goes in the crusade to destroy a duly elected and duly qualified president of the United States. Trump Derangement Syndrome will destroy everything we all hold holy and priceless unless political passions can be brought under control. The hour is late.

Judson Phillips: Resist movement, violence are tearing America apart – “Antifa, others terrorizing America.”

Since the election of 2016, the left has gone crazy. Their version of the tea party is called Resistance, and the spearhead of that is a loosely formed terrorist group called Antifa. Antifa is short for Anti-Fascist. The irony of their name is not lost on those who actually know history, as their tactics are straight from the fascist playbook.

In the past few months, these groups have repeatedly disrupted peaceful pro-Trump rallies. They have called for and used violence against people who support the president or disagree with them and even against members of the media who will report things Antifa doesn’t want reported.

California and Hawaii have recently announced that they would sign agreements with other nations so they could join the Paris climate change accord. Liberal states have this amazing ability to find things in the U.S. Constitution that people haven’t been able to find for over 200 years, but they ignore the plain language of the document that organizes the United States of America.

Will Ricciardella: HuffPo Pulls Article Calling For ‘Ultimate Punishment’ Of Trump – “The Huffington Post pulled a piece calling for the “execution” of President Donald Trump published Saturday by contributor Jason Fuller.”

Cheryl K. Chumley: We don’t need gun control — we need Democrat control – “Never let a crisis go to waste, as the left’s loud Chicago mayor, Rahm Emanuel, always used to say.”

If nothing else, this horrific ballpark shooting, done at the hands of James T. Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old Illinois man with an anti-Trump Facebook page that touted his love for all-things-socialism, shows just how dangerous the Democratic all-courts-press for political wins has become.

But the fact is, there is blame that can be affixed here. There is one political party more than another that’s comfortable using violence as a form of acceptable political protest. And violence, thy name is Democratic.

The common denominator? These are all leftist-led upheavals and campaigns. These are all Democratic-progressive-socialist-anarchist fueled protests, gatherings, get-togethers.

These are all movements that involve leftists possessed of intense hatred for all-things-Trump, all-things-conservative.

Unity is good. Peace is even better. And living out a godly, biblical life, both on Capitol Hill and in the privacy of home, that convicts of the need to reach out and connect with those of differing views is most definitely the way to go. But let’s face facts here.

The timing of this shooting means something. It says something about our culture, our moral compass, our political realities. It’s indicative of something deeper, darker. Put together all these somethings and what’s left is the need for Democrats, party of the angry, to step up, step forward and get their messaging and political protesting under control. And they need to do it quickly, before any more innocent Americans get hurt.

Thomas Lifson: New York Times publishes despicable lies to soften its own culpability for left wing violence – Denial on parade.

What’s a newspaper to do when it ostentatiously refuses to cut funding for a high-profile play in Central Park depicting an obvious President Trump-themed Julius Caesar being assassinated, and then a left wing extremist attempts to assassinate a group of GOP congressmen?

The answer is obvious: lie!

The New York Times editorial today about the attempted assassination yesterday in Alexandria is one of the most despicable acts of the newspaper since its Russia correspondent Walter Duranty actively covered up Stalin’s crimes in deliberately starving Ukraine.

John Sexton: The Washington Post has suddenly forgotten how the ‘climate of hate’ works – “Today’s shooting of Republicans by a man with a long history of anti-Republican social media postings has created a cottage industry of Republicans blame Democrats pieces on the left.” But, no, both sides are not equally culpable and trying to pretend so is a denial of the facts in existance.

IBT: Democrats Trot Out Plan C In Their Never-Ending Trump Impeachment Crusade – “It is merely a coincidence that just as the Trump-Russia collusion story started seriously falling apart, Democrats suddenly shifted gears to file a lawsuit against President Trump for allegedly violating an obscure provision of the Constitution involving foreign “emoluments.”

But more likely, this is simply another despicable attempt by Democrats to hobble a president they don’t like and overturn an election they regret, using any means necessary to do so. If Plan A (claiming Trump’s campaign colluded with Russians) won’t fly. And if Plan B (saying he tried to obstruct justice) doesn’t end up having legs — despite reports late Wednesday that the special council is looking into it. Then it’s time to move to Plan C, filing laughable emoluments lawsuits.

It makes one wonder how far down the alphabet we’ll have to go before we get to a Democratic plan that involves engaging in a civil debate with Trump over public policies to meet the urgent needs of the country. Do they even have such a plan?

Sundance: WaPo Report: Robert Mueller Investigating “Obstruction of Justice” Claims… – “It would appear the FBI and Robert Mueller’s team are still leaking information as noted by President Trump attorney.”

The risk represented by Robert Mueller is not connected to or about anything surrounding the Russian Conspiracy Narrative; the legal risk is within ‘the leaking‘ of classified intelligence information to undermine the administration, the potentially illegal ‘unmasking‘, and now adding an obstruction of justice angle.

If we avoid all the shiny things, ignore the shell game and reset our frame of reference to the only illegal activity currently known, the leaking; the main illegal activity visible is the illegal leaking of classified intelligence information.

Despite his earnest efforts, there is clear and mounting evidence that former FBI Director James Comey was the primary source of leaked information to the media.

The risk to Comey from his media leaking continues to explain everything James Comey has recently done, said and advanced.

Mueller has several problems. The only criminal predicate to provide credibility for his assignment is the leaking. A close friend and colleague of his is at the center of this predicate having even confessed to leaking and that raises the issue of Mueller’s conflict of interest. Mueller has also demonstrated a significant bias in his senior staff selections. All of this feeds the partisan witch hunt narrative rather than diminishes it and that feeds a sense of unfairness and corruption in the swamp.

Allahpundit: So that’s why so many Trump allies have called for firing Mueller this week – “explains why this news is suddenly being leaked. It’s an insurance policy for Mueller.”

The irony, though, is that it strengthens the “fire Mueller!” case. Mueller was supposed to be the low-key, by-the-book law-enforcement legend who’d conduct a quiet investigation with no dirty media tricks to gratuitously embarrass the president. And now here we are, with his team — presumably — leaking a sensational claim that the president’s being probed for obstruction.

And the question “what obstruction?” goes begging. It takes a lot of creativity to try to rationalize what is actually known to obtain the usual legal requirements for establishing obstruction of justice.

Instapundit has more starting with Kurt Schlichter: Why Should We Trust Mueller? – “Mueller should resign. Aside from the issues above, I don’t see any way that his office’s work will be seen as impartial, defeating the point of a special counsel. And given that — as even Chris Matthews has admitted — the whole Russia-collusion story has imploded, I’m not sure why his office shouldn’t just be shut down.”

Let’s look at all of the evidence. Mueller seems like a good guy. War hero. No scandals as FBI director. Not a known scumbag or skeevy perv. In Washington terms, the last one alone puts him miles ahead of the competition.

But now we find out that he’s Leaky Jim Comey’s bestest buddy there ever was. These guys are pals, and now Mueller is going to investigate the dude who fired his amigo? Does that seem cool to you?

In the news this morning on the Radio, the topic was about how successful the propaganda effort against Trump has been. The assassination efforts? No. The lack of evidence despite the allegations and innuendo? No. The leaks and other actual criminal activity? No.
