Steve Scalise's condition worsens

Written by  Reuters

WASHINGTON U.S. Representative Steve Scalise, shot and wounded during a baseball practice last month, developed an infection and was readmitted to an intensive care unit, MedStar Washington Hospital Center said on Wednesday.

Scalise, the No. 3 Republican leader in the U.S. House of Representatives, had been improving in recent weeks following surgeries to repair internal organs and broken bones.

The hospital, which downgraded his condition to "serious" from "fair," said it would provide another update on Thursday.

A gunman opened fire on Scalise and other Republican lawmakers as they practiced on June 14 in a Washington, D.C., suburb for a charity baseball game. Scalise, from Louisiana, was shot in the hip.

Gunman James Hodgkinson, 66, had a history of posting angry messages against Republican President Donald Trump. He died after being wounded by police at the Alexandria, Virginia, ballpark.

All of the antifa terrorists are his voters and supporters. They want communism. We will shoot them all before that can ever happen.

Just for your information, the Antifa and Resistance movement members are also supported and encouraged by the likes of of Obama, Clinton, Pelosi, Ellison, Schultz, Lewis, Warren, Waters, and others. Sanders doesn't have a lock on the radical Left.

Most want socialism, or more accurately, fascist-socialism, not communism. Fascism can be described as an "economic model in which the state dictates the utilization of privately held assets to achieve public policy goals." The state needn't own all means of production, the definition of communism. What it does is controls them through regulations, laws, taxes, zoning, and even EOs to carry out centralist collective governmental policy. Thus the government need not fund all of its agenda, but rather forces the private sector to do so.

But tell me, are you an American patriot who believes in the Constitution and the rule of constitutional law? Are you a Christian who believes in the Gospel of Jesus Christ? I ask because it seems you look forward to killing a lot of people.

Our prayers are with you.

When Cassius Clay founded the GOP as an Abolitionist, Dem assassins tried to kill him also to keep people enslaved. Thank God Lincoln was converted by Clay to stop slavery as an institution, but Democrats worked to keep Blacks in virtual slavery.

James, as you mentioned pro-slavery forces tried to assassinate Clay. With all the liberal screaming about Trump's anti-CNN video, I wonder what they'd say about Clay's actions. Despite being shot in the chest, he tackled his would be assassin, used his Bowie knife to cut his eyes out, and threw him over an embankment.

In a later assassination attempt by Democrat pro-slavery forces, he was attack by 6 men. When they failed to shoot him, he beat them off, killing their leader with, again, his Bowie knife.

Maybe someone should present Pres. Trump with a commemorative Bowie knife. Just don't put Democrat slayer on it or there'e be howls of protest. By the way, Clay became the US Ambassador to Russia and helped obtain Russia's support for the Union during the Civil War.

Rose, you're right, but sadly there've been Democrats, including members of the MSM, who've publicly said that Scalise deserved being shot, and some have said they wished he and the other Republicans had been killed in the attack.
