June 2017, a congressional baseball practice turned deadly. A deranged Bernie Sanders supporter opened fire with a rifle on a group of Republican congressmen and staffers. Anything to stop Conservative Republicans... anything.

Our nation was founded on Godly principles, and as a result, America is the most blessed and prosperous nation on earth. Through Trump, God made her Great Again. We aim to keep her great.
Blessed is the Nation, who's God is the Lord.
