The Washington Post has fallen almost as far as CNN. In a news analysis article, the paper tries to shift blame for James Hodgkinson’s attempt to murder Republican congressmen on conservative talk radio.

It’s an established fact that Hodgkinson was a Bernie-loving, anti-Trump, Rachel Maddow “super fan,” so wouldn’t it make more...

In light of the attempted assassination of Steve Scalise and other Republican congressman by a Bernie-loving progressive, and the widespread leftist violence by Antifa and similar groups, it’s worth asking why the American left is so angry.

Larry Elder attempts to answer that question in the video below. The key, he says,...

Well that was quick.

I can’t recall as substantial an assassination attempt against one political party as took place Wednesday morning, June 14, 2017. Certainly there have been individual assassinations and shots fired, such as by Puerto Rican nationalists in 1954, but this was a well planned attempt at mass murder directed...

The Congressional Baseball game is a 108-year-old tradition and one of the best annual showings of bipartisanship.

This year, a day after Rep. Steve Scalise was shot and severely injured during baseball practice, a public display of unity and civility was desperately needed. And that’s exactly what happened.

I am stunned as I write this.

A sitting member of Congress, Rep. Steve Scalise, was shot this morning, based purely upon his political beliefs.

The shooter, James Hodgkinson, posted many anti-Trump rants on his social media feeds. And, it is reported that before unloading approximately 50 shots at a congressional baseball game,...

Wednesday’s baseball shooting left several injured and one dead.

In things I never thought I’d say, I must agree with both President Trump and Sen. McCaskill — unity, not division should be the goal at this day’s end.

It’s impossible to ignore the toxic political polarization or that as Professor Jacobson discussed...

Yes, let’s all come together, hold hands, unite . . . and blame President Trump for the shooting of Steve Scalise and others yesterday. Morning Joe opened today with predictable pieties, Joe Scarborough saying, for example, that “the heated rhetoric in this country has to calm down.”

But before the show’s first...
