Senator’s Wife Writes Open Letter To Corey Booker – ‘I Now Keep a Loaded Gun Near My Bed”

Published

on

For those who, even after last summer’s shooting of Republican Congressman Steve Scalise, remain convinced physical threats against conservative and GOP politicians and their families remain only a theoretical and significantly baseless concern…

I give you Exhibit A: an open letter to Democratic show-boater and Senator Corey Booker (D- NJ), who last June entreated people to confront elected officials by “Go[ing] up on the Hill … Get[ting] up in the face of some Congress-people.” The missive to the New Jersey Senator, penned by Kelly Paul, wife of Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, is published today at CNN.com:

“It’s nine o’clock at night, and as I watch out the window, a sheriff’s car slowly drives past my home. I am grateful that they have offered to do extra patrols, as someone just posted our home address, and Rand’s cell number, on the internet — all part of a broader effort to intimidate and threaten Republican members of Congress and their families. I now keep a loaded gun by my bed. Our security systems have had to be expanded. I have never felt this way in my life.

“In the last 18 months, our family has experienced violence and threats of violence at a horrifying level. I will never forget the morning of the shooting at the congressional baseball practice, the pure relief and gratitude that flooded me when I realized that Rand was okay.

“He was not okay last November, when a violent and unstable man attacked him from behind while he was working in our yard, breaking six ribs and leaving him with lung damage and multiple bouts of pneumonia. Kentucky’s secretary of state, Alison Lundergan Grimes, recently joked about it in a speech. MSNBC commentator Kasie Hunt laughingly said on air that Rand’s assault was one of her “favorite stories.” Cher, Bette Midler, and others have lauded his attacker on Twitter. I hope that these women never have to watch someone they love struggle to move or even breathe for months on end.

“Earlier this week, Rand was besieged in the airport by activists “getting up in his face,” as you, Senator Booker, encouraged them to do a few months ago. Preventing someone from moving forward, thrusting your middle finger in their face, screaming vitriol — is this the way to express concern or enact change? Or does it only incite unstable people to violence, making them feel that assaulting a person is somehow politically justifiable?

“Senator Booker, Rand has worked with you to co-sponsor criminal justice reform bills. He respects you, and so do I. I would call on you to retract your statement. I would call on you to condemn violence, the leaking of elected officials’ personal addresses (our address was leaked from a Senate directory given only to senators), and the intimidation and threats that are being hurled at them and their families.”

Over at 100percentfedup.com, they reflect:

“Violence and threats of violence against GOP lawmakers and President Trump’s administration have reached a new high.

“… Robert Creamer, Democrat strategist, former felon, frequent visitor at Obama’s White House, and wife of sitting US Representative Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), was caught on camera organizing leftists to threaten and agitate Trump supporters during his 2016 campaign. Their goal was to taunt Trump supporters, getting them so angry, that they would fight back, and it would all be captured on camera … After President Trump won the election, leftists organized to tear the city of DC apart during his inauguration. The violence continued with Antifa and left-wing groups escalating their attacks against Trump supporters at rallies and conservative speaking events on college campuses.”

That’s bad.

But things get even worse when prominent Democrats -– those who are supposed to keep the lid on irresponsible or threatening antics from within their ranks — join in on the chaos-cultivating rhetoric. Everyone remembers US Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) who, last June, urged supporters to confront members of Trump’s administration right out in public spaces.

Again, courtesy of CNN, “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from [Trump’s] Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

The feisty Golden State Representative later asserted she wasn’t endorsing violence – but then went on to crow to a delighted Los Angeles audience, “I did not threaten [Trump] constituents and supporters. I do that all the time, but I didn’t do that that time.” (The Hill)

Well. Shazam.

To be fair, a full decade before Water’s combustible comments, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama proclaimed at a Philadelphia Democratic fundraiser: “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun. Because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

I’ve been told the enlightened, philosophically evolved Party of Tolerance was supposed to be scandalized by that kind of minatory rhetoric? What gives, Mr. Former-President?

Months later, the New York Daily News reported, at two Nevada stops Obama fired up the enthusiastic gathered with, “I want you to argue with [your friends and neighbors]and get in their face!”

Booker, who many electoral handicappers are convinced wants to be the next Obama, seems to be channeling the 44th President in seconding that “Get-up-in-their-faces” battle-cry. The Senator’s bellicosity is all the weirder because, as National Review’s Kyle Smith reminds us in a February 2018 piece, at one time the erstwhile Newark, NJ mayor essayed to portray himself a kind of centrist peace-maker on the partisan landscape.

One year ago, at a North Carolina NAACP meeting, he admonished, “Don’t be one of those people I catch calling our president nasty names. I’m serious. How can you think that you’re going to beat darkness by spewing darkness? If Nelson Mandela can love his jailers, if Martin Luther King can love Bull Connor — we’ve got to be people of love!”

Admittedly, confronting someone and also loving them are not automatically mutually exclusive. But with the histrionics and hostility characterizing so much of our public policy quarreling nowadays? “Get in their face”? Not a few electrified activists might be inclined to reckon them’s fightin’ words. I mean literal fightin’ words.

America just might benefit quite a bit if the old Cory Booker — the “lover”, not the “get-in-your-facer” — made a return and regular reappearances thereafter. Accompanied by politicians from both sides embracing that same spirit.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

* By

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

...

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
