Assassination attempt on House Republican

50 shots were fired at a Democrats vs Republicans Congressional baseball game in Alexandria, Virginia. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana was shot and wounded in the hip. Several Congressional aides and two federal agents were also shot.

The shooter had a long rifle, but apparently not much in the way of military training. The shooter was shot, apprehended, and taken to the hospital.

The shooter was James T. Hodgkinson, a union member, Bernie Sanders volunteer, and left-wing anti-Trump hater. He was shot and killed by the Capital Police.

The shot heard around the swirl.

Don't know much about Steve Scalise. Target of opportunity, accidental bystander, or false flag? I.e., does anyone actually have a good reason to want to take him out, or anyone out at this baseball game?

Rep. Clay Higgins is also from LA. I haven't read anything good about Scalise, it he's a white Male Republican from Louisiana, so good enough I guess.

@2 One Congressman is saying that a guy asked him if it was an R or D practice and the shooting started about three minutes later. It looks like intentional targeting of Republicans.

Of course the "brain trust" that is the GOPe will decide they aren't nice enough.

The Left has been working themselves up to this.

Blogger Cail Corishev June 14, 2017 8:36 AM  

From Fox News, for what it's worth:

"Scalise endorsed President Trump during last year’s presidential campaign, and has been a vocal backer of Trump’s travel ban. As leader of the powerful study group, he has also spearheaded the effort to repeal and replace ObamaCare."

There seem to be conflicting reports on whether the shooter is dead or was taken to the hospital. Odds are he won't survive to talk about who inspired/hired him, one way or the other.

There is a quote from a congressman that "he thought it was a white male but only saw them for 2-3 seconds". If it is a right leaning white male we will know his name within 4-5 hours. If it is a democrat or musloid, or a magic negro, or a mestizo we won't know about it until tomorrow or later.

50 shots and 5 hits. For having the best security around, it does show the quislings can be targeted and hurt for a price.

That was one of my thoughts. If the guy got 50 shots off then the protection details are not as good they are portrayed to be. How many members of congress were present at this event? Seems like there should be a little more protection for a significant percentage of congress all in the same location. Also it appears that the number of wounded is not a final number. There are reports that several pages were injured.

Congressman Mike Bishop called into Paul W Smith on WJR Detroit - here were the highlights:

- Bishop was at first base; jump to the ground while shots went overhead.
- Lots of shots fired - well over 50 - rapid fire successions. (Definitely sounded to me like a leftist who is a really bad shot and just played vidya games.)
- Scalise at second base was the target; they really went after him
- Scalise shot in the hip; didn't look fatal
- One GOP staffer shot in the chest; looks real bad
- One GOP staffer shot somewhere else; doesn't look as bad
- Multiple magazines and time to change between them
- Bishop estimated 8-10 minutes total
- Scalise's security men were outside the diamond; came in; had revolvers (he originally said pistols but said they were just service revolvers); the security men charged the shooter who was very keen on Scalise; they took some hits themselves but also brought him down with far fewer shots.
- The other Congressman and staffers, including somebody's 11 year old boy, were in the dugout or batting box - whatever is the structure as he kept saying there was just one structure they could get into, but if the gunman had gotten to it, it would have been over since there was just one entrance.
- And the diamond had a backstop so they could not flee; only one exit; the guy had clearly planned this and scouted it out before hand.

@28

More from Bishop on Paul W Smith about the nature of the security detail:

- Protection detail was just for Scalise; the other members of the House don't have protection.
- They were outside the baseball diamond.
- They were definitely not expecting anything. Bishop said that he had thought about bringing his son.
- They have done this regularly - 5:30 am batting practice in preparation for a charity game coming up - nobody even considered security for it.
- I did not get the impression that this was open to the public, but not for trying to stop it - just who would want to see 10 Congressmen and about 20 staffers taking batting practice in their sweats?

It's not about skill of the protection detail, though. It's about the constraints of the real world. Misdirection, decoys, variable routes, secret schedules, that is how these people are protected day to day. You can't truly secure a half mile bubble around someone in an urban area, it's just impossible, especially if a pro is trying to get the protectee. I doubt it's possible to secure a 250m radius in most areas and that's a chip shot with just about any centerfire rifle wearing a low power scope. Countersnipers only work on idiots who don't know fieldcraft, at least until the first shot is taken.

If you have reliable information on where someone is going to be at a given time, you're skilled with a rifle, and you're willing to risk dying in the attempt, you can kill them. Fortunately most crazies are unskilled noobs.

This guy was obviously a clown if he didn't manage to kill anyone and he was using a rifle inside 100 yards. Maybe it was a 22 or something.

I want to know when the editors, journalists, and anchors for outfits like CNN and Reuters are going to be arrested for incitement to violence?

They know exactly what they are doing, and every bit of rhetoric deployed from "Hands Up Don't Shoot" onwards has resulted in bloody violence on the streets, 2 assassination attempts against Trump himself, hundreds of dead cops, and tends of billions in damage to America's major cities.

Their stoking of Russia hysteria among many other angles has been explicitly designed to widen this campaign of violence to all Republicans.

Yes, I know at the end of all this is a large segment of the CIA gone rogue, but they are rendered helpless if their mouthpieces aren't there anymore to incite incidents like this.

It's gotta be some sort of antifa or lib shooting.

Early scuttlebutt is that shooter asked someone while walking up to the field whether it was Rs or Ds at the field. The guy said Rs, and the shooter proceeded accordingly. That the guy only wounded people in his first shots is an indicator that the guy wasn't trained.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-06-14/multiple-people-shot-congressional-baseball-practice-house-majority-whip-scalise-hit

Michigan Rep. Mike Bishop tells WWJ Newsradio 950 he was attending the practice around 5:30 a.m., just outside of Alexandria, when shots rang out. He said he and his colleagues were “sitting ducks.”

“As we were standing here this morning, a gunman walked up to the fence line and just began to shoot. I was standing at home plate and he was in the third base line,” Bishop said. “He had a rifle that was clearly meant for the job of taking people out, multiple casualties, and he had several rounds and magazines that he kept unloading and reloading.”

(snip)

“The only reason why any of us walked out of this thing, by the grace of God, one of the folks here had a weapon to fire back and give us a moment to find cover. We were inside the backstop and if we didn’t have that cover by a brave person who stood up and took a shot themselves, we would not have gotten out of there and every one of us would have been hit — every single one of us,” said Bishop. “He was coming around the fence line and he was looking for all of us who had found cover in different spots. But if we didn’t have return fire right there, he would have come up to each one of us and shot us point-blank.”

Plan on her never being called out for not acting as a safety on kick off. It doesn't happen often, but usually 2-3 games in a season you see a teams kicker save a run back touchdown by either tackling or at least shoving the returner out of bounds. I doubt this woman ever tries that or if she does, she ends up hurt as the result of a stiff arm.

Saw the article earlier today and the thing that stuck out the most was the sheer length of it.

Anonymous Anchorman June 14, 2017 9:56 AM  

If the shooter asked "Republicans or Democrats," he likely wasn't targeting anyone in particular.

Presuming it was said/reported correctly (big IF in the first 24 hours of any story), he must've heard the field was (somewhat) regularly used by member of Congress.

As far as how he could pull it off, I think folks believe DC and politicians are far more secure than reality.

Anyone see the movie, "Undecided?" Those two were making a really good "our elections are a joke" movie and got to go shooting with a presidential candidate after meeting him for the first time. They got up close to almost all candidates by just walking up to them.

This incident just highlights the opportunities missed as a result of the US lacking an organized and violent group on the right. If senior level Congressmen are this accessible, leftist judges, journalists, academics and local politicians would be sitting ducks. Although pre-Trump there hadn't even been a right of center presidential candidate from the GOP for at least a generation so I guess one must walk before he can run.

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/kickers-are-forever/

As far as I can tell, the high school girls' kicking record is 47 yards, and the high school boys kicking record is 68 yards. This is notable because girls peak athletically much earlier than boys.

Here's a college kicker making an 80 yarder:
http://www.businessinsider.com/texas-kicker-nick-rose-field-goal-2015-7

As far as I can tell the female equivalent (practice, not a game) all time record is 50 yards.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lOt0x1wFyM

So you have a 30 yard gap in potential kicking distance. NFL kickers are successful 67% of the time for in-game kicks that are beyond the female world record.

Sorry to kill the suspense and end that discussion.

On the other hand, women born with the odd birth defect of male genitalia are increasingly dominating women's sports. The chances are good that one of these amazing women successfully breaks into men's sport for the first time ever.

If you do a word study of the Ammonites mentioned in the old testament, the name that keeps coming up is Balaam. We all know him, he's the guy with the talking ass, and he's presented in our Calvinistic Evangelical history as a hero, except he's not. The New Testament mentions him more times than most of the other OT people put together. His crime? Telling Balak how to bring down the Isrealites by sending his women to intermarry with them. The worst kings of Isreal are the spawn of Solomon's Ammonite wife. Solomon for all his wisdom, built temples to his wives gods.
So I don't know if it is wrong to marry interracially, as much as it's wrong to unequally marry.
Not sure, but isn't a lot of the sharking coming out of the indoctrination in the institutions we subject our children to? The "magic negro" to put it crassly.

I don't get the point of all of the conspiracy theorizing about "psychotropics". If those drugs really caused these kinds of things, there would be thousands/tens of thousands of these acts every day. They are the most widely prescribed drugs in the country. I think they are not nearly as useful as they are made out to be, but of COURSE there's a high chance a shooter is going to be on meds.

People who go kill others aren't generally the happy, fulfilled people who are unlikely to be on scripts. Of course, anyone who kills a bunch of people and ISN'T on prozac or w/e will be instantly forgotten - it's just confirmation bias all the way down.

Blogger NO GOOGLES June 14, 2017 12:53 PM  

Also, there is just no way that a female kicker would actually cut the mustard in the NFL. As a publicity stunt, maybe - but as an actual player? Kickers are actually held to an incredibly high standard, and there isn't a huge amount of variation between the best NFL kickers and the worst. Maybe they could play in arena ball (do they even have designated kickers?) with a shorter field, but it's pretty important in the NFL to be able to have a high percentage of good kicks at ~40 yards, and to be capable of the 50 yard at least occasionally.

Second, she'd actually have to be as good as top tier kicking talent in the NFL for it to make any sense - you can never really use her as a safety on a kicking play to save the touchdown or w/e, and she's likely to get seriously injured if she gets hit AT ALL. To be worth that kind of risk and to have absolutely no defensive value at all, she'd have to be better than your average kicker... and NFL kickers are just too good for that to be the case.

Balaam presuaded the pagans to seduce the Israelites to engage in sexual immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols. Now, fool, find such in Calvin's writing or renounce your slander.

As far as you're going to get is that he was a seer with whom God interacted; does that make God complicit in Balaam's corruption.

More recently, a production of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” depicted a Trump-like figure who was assassinated. The president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., on Twitter highlighted another user’s tweet that said, “Events like today are EXACTLY why we took issue with NY elites glorifying the assassination of our President,” soon after shots were fired at Republican congressmen during a baseball practice.

One of the details coming out: he fired his rifle dry and was down to his pistol when the Capitol Police were able to charge him and shoot him up.

He was living in Alexandria for a few months already before doing this. Again, no one see's something odd here??

I can understand the motivation to blow off you protective duties and spend time on hookers and blow. What's the downside to failing to protect Obama adequately?

Why don't you explain it to us, since we're such dummies. I see a Trump-hating socialist Democrat, who talked about how Trump and Republicans who support him on the travel ban and repealing Obamacare need to be "destroyed," who let his business license lapse several months ago, who has a bit of a rap sheet with some assaults on it, who's been staying in D.C. for a while, probably working up his courage for this.

The only odd thing about it is that there's nothing at all odd about it.

It is amazing how quickly this story was pushed down the memory hole on the TV news. Make sure you keep pushing it on every open channel.

Anyone notice the lobbyist that was shot was from Tyson? Big donor to the Clinton's if I remember correctly. If I remember the reports correctly, Tyson uses a lot of labor from, shall we say, "parts unknown".
