The Increasingly Violent Resistance, Comey Confusion, Protecting Life, Marring Mother's Day

by Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author:  The Increasingly Violent Resistance - We have reported in the past about the growing violence on university campuses and attacks against Trump supporters in major cities. Physical assaults and violent attacks by the left are becoming more frequent. These are not isolated incidents by rogue leftists. It is part of a deliberate strategy to terrorize and silence conservatives.

That political debates can at times get heated and occasionally out of control is not surprising. Passions on hot button issues often run hot. But the left has a growing problem with violence and few responsible elected officials are calling them out about it.

The Occupy Wall Street movement, for example, formed to protest excesses in the financial industry, developed a lengthy rap sheet. Democrat pollster Doug Schoen surveyed the Occupy demonstrators and found that 31% supported violence to achieve their agenda.

Hillary Clinton's defeat did not result in any significant introspection by the left. It appears to have only further radicalized many in the "resistance." During Donald Trump's inauguration, they took to the streets of Washington, D.C., blocked public entrances, set trash on fire and attacked private property. I was accosted by two left-wing demonstrators while attempting to get to an inaugural event.

Remember the recent pipeline protests in North Dakota? Law enforcement officials collected 41 pages of social media posts against the police officers who had to confront the demonstrators. The names, addresses and pictures of law enforcement officers were posted online with threats like this one: "Every one of these cops has family . . . Make their family pay."

In one video, a progressive threatened to gang rape officers' family members and threatened to "kill your daughters, your mothers, your fathers, your grandparents, even you!"

As I wrote last week, the progressive left is increasingly engaging in fascist tactics, and The Daily Caller has outlined a number of shocking incidents. For example:
  • Last week, police in Tennessee charged an Obamacare supporter with felony reckless endangerment after she followed Rep. David Kustoff (R-TN) from a town hall event and attacked his vehicle.
  • Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) was also physically accosted by an Obamacare supporter.
Again, my friends, these are not just spontaneous outbursts. The "Resistance" is embracing violence. Let me share with you what one Huffington Post writer suggested recently:

"It's time to move beyond polite protests within specified boundaries. It's time to escalate the expression of our outrage and our anger in a massive way. Starting today and from here on, no elected official -- certainly those in the GOP defending and supporting Trump on a variety of issues, for example -- should be able to sit down for a nice, quiet lunch or dinner in a Washington, D.C. eatery or even in their own homes. They should be hounded by protestors everywhere, especially in public -- in restaurants, in shopping centers, in their districts, and yes, on the public property outside their homes and apartments, in Washington and back in their home states."Of course, at least two members of the Trump Administration have been harassed in public places. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was accosted at an Apple store. Omarosa Manigault was accosted while shopping at a northern Virginia mall.

There was a time not that long ago during the Obama years when "civility in our public discourse" was all the rage among the media. Tea Party supporters were told to calm down and be quiet. Suddenly, those concerned media voices are silent. Virtually no one in the mainstream media or the liberal political establishment is calling out the Huffington Post for threatening Trump supporters in their homes or denouncing the left's embrace of violence.

Comey Confusion - A recent Politico survey found that many Americans are confused by President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey. Here's what the poll found: 35% said Trump was right to fire Comey, 33% said he should not have fired Comey and 32% said they didn't know what to think.

These numbers show why it is so important for Republicans to support the White House and defend the president, and not buy into the Beltway media-dominated groupthink.

The left is completely unhinged in its hatred of Donald Trump. Their media allies are doing everything they can to amplify the left's anti-Trump messaging. Yet after nearly a week of the left controlling the narrative 24/7, only one-third of Americans are siding with the left! Just imagine what the numbers might be if there was a unified GOP response.

Whether congressional Republicans like it or not, the American people elected Donald Trump to be our president. The fate of the Republican Party -- and the country -- is tied to Trump's success or failure. The left is united in its opposition and determined to see Trump and the GOP destroyed. The sooner the GOP stops forming circular firing squads, the better.

For a clear analysis of Comey's firing, check out this opinion piece by former Attorney General William Barr.

Protecting Life - Kudos to the Trump Administration! Several reports say that the State Department will unveil today a dramatic expansion of the pro-life Mexico City policy. As you may know, that policy was instituted by President Ronald Reagan to ensure that no U.S. tax dollars were used to pay for or promote abortions overseas. Bill Clinton and Barack Obama repealed the Mexico City policy when they took office and President Trump reinstated it.

But President Trump went further. He instructed the secretaries of State and Health and Human Services to expand the covered programs beyond the $600 million in USAID funding to include "global health assistance furnished by all departments or agencies." The new initiative, called "Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance," covers another $9 billion in programs, much of which is spent by the Pentagon.

Further demonstrating the administration's commitment to life, I am pleased to report that Dr. Charmaine Yoest was sworn in today as the Assistant Secretary of Public Affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services. Previously Dr. Yoest had served as the Joan Lindsey Senior Fellow at my public policy organization, American Values, and as CEO of Americans United for Life.

Personnel is policy, and I know Dr. Yoest will continue to be a strong advocate for the right to life at the Department of Health and Human Services.

Marring Mother's Day - Remember when Michelle Obama tried to ruin Thanksgiving by telling progressives to push "health care for the holidays"?

Why does the left always feel like it has to inject its radical agenda into everything?

Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, marred Mother's Day with this suggestion: "This Mother's Day, instead of taking your mom out to brunch or sending chocolate, commit to fighting for a government that recognizes . . . the right to decide when and whether to become a mom."

Incredibly, Richards used Mother's Day to celebrate a procedure which guaranteed that 50 million babies were never able to wish their moms a "happy Mother's Day."
