Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, was attacked in his home on Friday morning.
The assailant is currently in police custody and Pelosi has been taken to the hospital.
Fortunately, it appears that Pelosi is expected to make a full recovery.
The attacker’s motives have yet to be determined.
The suspect broke into the Pelosi’s San Francisco residence early Friday morning and then violently assaulted Paul.

House speaker Nancy Pelosi was not home at the time.
Increasing threats of violence against political figures have become a serious problem in recent years.
Earlier this year, a man was arrested outside of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home.
The man admitted that he had planned to kill Kavanaugh when police arrested him.
Political rhetoric is at an-time high.

The Hill with more details:
“Mr. Pelosi was taken to the hospital, where he is receiving excellent medical care and is expected to make a full recovery. The Speaker was not in San Francisco at the time. The Speaker and her family are grateful to the first responders and medical professionals involved, and request privacy at this time,” Hammill added.
Speaker Pelosi is scheduled to speak at the Human Rights Campaign Annual National Dinner in Washington, D.C. on Saturday. She has been crisscrossing the country in recent weeks ahead of next month’s midterm elections.
Threats against lawmakers have been on the rise in recent years. Between Jan. 1 and March 23 of this year, U.S. Capitol Police opened about 1,820 cases involving direct threats and concerning statements or actions.
I’m hoping and praying Paul Pelosi is ok. I’m outraged the Speaker and her family are going through this. This is cowardly, disgusting, and disgraceful. https://t.co/RkGRihVJiH

I feel absolutely sick, horrified and disgusted about the news of Paul Pelosi. What in God's name is happening in this country?! Everyone join me and send support, love, prayers, anything you can to Speaker Pelosi, her husband and the entire Pelosi family.
This is a broken world

My thoughts are with Speaker Pelosi and her husband this morning. Violence of any kind, for any reason, is unacceptable and must be condemned. I wish Paul Pelosi a swift recovery.

This may be a good time to remind everyone that we certainly do not condone illegal violence.
But speaking of violence, why is Nancy allowed to say this?

That’s not something we stand for.
Please read this special announcement:
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: We Do Not Support Calls For Violence, But Beware…
Noah here with a special Public Service Announcement.
I think you’re going to like this one and I’d sure love to hear from you in the comments after you read it.
Our mission here at WeLoveTrump is to research and print the truth, wherever we may find it.
The truth the MSM likes to ignore…
The truth the MSM likes to cover up…
The truth the MSM likes to twist.
We correct the record and just like a lion, we set truth free because it can defend itself.
So that’s our mission.
NOTE: our mission does not and never has been to call for violence or to support violence.
You may think it is absurd I even have to print that, and I would agree…
Of course, we are the people who constantly decried and called out all the violence, looting and burning down of cities during the summer of 2020.
That kind of behavior has NO PLACE in America.
So we want to be absolutely clear where we stand.
We also stand for the Constitution.
We stand for free and fair elections.
We stand for truth and justice.
So in case there was any confusion or question out there, I hope this clears it up.
DISCLAIMER: I cannot be responsible for what God’s Angel Army may choose to do.
Speaking of the Bible, there is a verse that says “As for me and my house…”
So that’s what I can speak for — Me (Noah) and my house (WeLoveTrump).
I can’t speak for God’s Angel Army or what they may choose to do.
They kind of have a mind of their own and they don’t tend listen much to what man wants to do.
What am I talking about?
Just a little story taken right out of 2 Kings Chapter 6 from the Bible.
Do you know that story?
Perhaps you need to hear it right now.
Elisha is trapped in Dothan.
The King of Aram surrounded the city and Elisha’s assistant panics thinking all is lost. He thinks they have no way out.
And then Elisha says those famous words: “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
To the person who is only looking in the physical, that looked to be 100% wrong.
To the people who are looking right now and thinking “nothing has ever happened”, they think the all prayer and prophecies have been completely wrong.
But Elisha was looking in the spiritual world and he could see that although King Aram’s armies were surrounding the city, there were actually Hosts Upon Hosts of Heavenly Angels surrounding the King. Completely outmatched. Horses and chariots of fire ridden by Angels filled the hills around the King’s army!
And that, my friends, is where I believe we stand at this very moment.
I can see it, can you?
Read it here, I’ve bolded my favorite part:
8 Now the king of Aram was at war with Israel. After conferring with his officers, he said, “I will set up my camp in such and such a place.”
9 The man of God sent word to the king of Israel: “Beware of passing that place, because the Arameans are going down there.” 10 So the king of Israel checked on the place indicated by the man of God. Time and again Elisha warned the king, so that he was on his guard in such places.
11 This enraged the king of Aram. He summoned his officers and demanded of them, “Tell me! Which of us is on the side of the king of Israel?”
12 “None of us, my lord the king,” said one of his officers, “but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.”
13 “Go, find out where he is,” the king ordered, “so I can send men and capture him.” The report came back: “He is in Dothan.” 14 Then he sent horses and chariots and a strong force there. They went by night and surrounded the city.
15 When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked.
16 “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
18 As the enemy came down toward him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, “Strike this army with blindness.” So he struck them with blindness, as Elisha had asked.
19 Elisha told them, “This is not the road and this is not the city. Follow me, and I will lead you to the man you are looking for.” And he led them to Samaria.
20 After they entered the city, Elisha said, “Lord, open the eyes of these men so they can see.” Then the Lord opened their eyes and they looked, and there they were, inside Samaria.
21 When the king of Israel saw them, he asked Elisha, “Shall I kill them, my father? Shall I kill them?”
22 “Do not kill them,” he answered. “Would you kill those you have captured with your own sword or bow? Set food and water before them so that they may eat and drink and then go back to their master.” 23 So he prepared a great feast for them, and after they had finished eating and drinking, he sent them away, and they returned to their master. So the bands from Aram stopped raiding Israel’s territory.
So there you go.
As for me and my house, we stand for truth, justice, the Constitution, freedom, liberty, free and fair elections, the American dream, life, liberty and the pursuit of justice…
…and we do not stand for, or call for, violence. Period.
But as for the angels I see surrounding this country on its metaphorical hillsides — I do not speak for them. 😊
If you want a little more on the angels, I give you this recent message from Tim Sheets:
