Would-be gunman launched into
Trump tirade before shooting

Associated Press, by Ben Finley & Jim Salter

ALEXANDRIA, Va.- For three months, James T. Hodgkinson lived out of a white cargo van in a gentrified neighborhood just miles from where U.S. laws are made. Fellow YMCA patrons saw him there most mornings working on his laptop. One bartender said he spent many evenings quietly sipping cans of Budweiser by himself. The Bernie Sanders supporter told his wife he had an interest in tax policy, and he sold his Harley motorcycle and home inspection business before making the trip in March. By Tuesday, he seemed ready to come home, asking a mechanic to make sure his tires would survive

FTA: "This man was just so passionate and hateful toward (President Donald) Trump," said Crist Dauberman, recounting Hodgkinson´s profanity-laden tirade....It was more than the average person who had maybe voted for Hillary. This was different. It was deeply rooted to where his whole tone and composure changed. His voice got loud and deep. There was so much anger in it."

If you weren´t convinced before that Hodgkinson intended a mass political assassination, this description should convince you. If Steve Scalise had for some reason decided to not show up at the field on Wednesday, that is likely what would have happened, since he was the only one with security.

Did the FBI get around to declaring a motive, or are they still checking some things out?

My God poster #1 is exactly right. Had the now critically wounded Stephen Scalise not been there, it would have been a terrible massacre. And Hodgkinson would have gotten into his van and driven back to Illinois. .

As for the article, it is informative and well written. (And not politically biased which is so unusual given that these are reporters for the AP.) (It would be unusual from any msm reporters these days.)

The headline is not accurate. He ranted against all Republicans, Republican policies. The list he had with him indicated the names of at least 3 Republican lawmakers. Trump was just part of it. But AP has never been interested in accuracy in media, has it…

It’s my guess he was an angry, irritable little man for a long time. A short (5’5 on the police booking photo from the past), stocky. And a beer drinker.

In the evenings, Hodgkinson became a bit of a regular at the Pork Barrel BBQ restaurant just a few blocks from the ballfield where he opened fire. He always drank alone, and always drank cans of Budweiser - sometimes just one, sometimes as many as six, said Kristina Scrimshaw, a bartender at the restaurant. He rarely spoke.

It doesn’t take much beer to make an irritable drinker turn nasty. No good at rational discussions, they brood over their beers. Then at some point, they explode. He had a history of that.

It is time to remember that there are many similarities between Trump and Sanders supporters. They both feel the people running our country have forgotten about them. There will probably be more violence like this - a country with a very angry minority will produce a few people who feel they can make a difference by resorting to violence.

One of the shooter´s neighbors described him as a contentious, irascible, opinionated, miserable SOB, someone you´d never want to encounter in the flesh. In my brief but educational foray into leftism the active radicals I met were to a man and woman unpleasant people, intolerant of any thinking independent of their beloved Rousseau, Marx, Marcuse, and Ken Galbraith. Collectivists and redistributionists one and all. Back then they wanted only to jail their opponents (Nixon, et al.); nowadays their fringe has gone as far beyond that as you can go.

The police are not ubiquitous. (Nor should they be in a free society.) The main responsibility for our safety rests with us, not law enforcement. They might be there in time to save lives after our distress calls; they might arrive in time to draw chalk outlines around the dead.

Any mass shooting by anything less than a platoon of attackers can be foiled by one or several friendlies with mohaskas and cool heads. Criminals are never going to be without guns. Will their intended victims lose their right to self defense? If the Left has its way, yes.

As former FBI Director James Comey’s best friend, Robert Mueller, stocks his Seinfeld investigation-about-nothing with every Democratic lawyer and Hillary and/or Obama donor he can find, we are treated to the delicious irony of collusion with Russia being confirmed -- and the colluder-in-chief being Ex-president Barack Hussein Obama. Even Obama’s Democrat supporters are now acknowledging he knew about Russia’s hacking of the DNC and Podesta emails. They are acknowledging that he did nothing but are not acknowledging the reason why – that he thought Hillary Clinton was going to succeed him and he wanted to do nothing to offend the

Following CNN’s retraction of a story surrounding the Russia probe and the resignation of three accomplished journalists, a number of conservative commentators took great joy in railing against the network. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to deliver a rant in which he used his favorite description of the outlet — Fake News — rather judiciously. Well, at least one direct competitor came to the network’s defense — MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough. (Tweets) While Scarborough has definitely been on an anti-Trump tilt for a while now, so his comments towards the president aren’t really surprising, his defense of CNN surely

Hillary: Treatment of Libraries in Trump

During a speech at the American Library Association’s convention on Tuesday, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton compared the treatment of libraries in Trump administration’s budget to Ray Bradbury’s novel “Fahrenheit 451.” Hillary said, “I believe that libraries and democracy go hand in hand. That’s why it’s so hard to believe that in 2017 in America, libraries are actually under attack from our own government. I’m told that even here at this conference, some of you have had to duck out of sessions to call Congress and urge them not to eliminate federal funding for libraries.

It was just weeks into President Bill Clinton’s administration when his staff decided the cameras would be off for most of George Stephanopolous’ briefings. People seemed okay with Clinton’s ‘no camera’ rules, but when the Trump administration does it, it’s the end of democracy and freedom of the press. (Photo) In a March 1993 C-SPAN interview with White House press secretary Dee Dee Myers, she explained that the White House stopped the live press briefings because they weren’t “really necessary”. Myers went on to say: “I think that that was something that we did in the first week or two, I

Barack Obama has been pictured visiting the Tirta Empul Temple during his family trip to Bali. The former president, wife Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia, were yesterday pictured white water rafting down the Ayung River, a popular tourist spot on the Indonesian Island. Today a healthy-looking Obama swapped the bulky hat and life jacket for a white polo shirt and dark jeans while attending the Hindu Balinese water temple, near the town of Tampaksiring.

The House Intelligence Committee met behind closed doors Tuesday with John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign chairman, amid complaints by President Donald Trump that the Obama administration didn’t do enough to counter Russian interference in the U.S. election. Podesta’s email account was hacked, as was the Democratic National Committee’s. Many of those emails were then leaked, producing a steady, negative and sometimes embarrassing stream of news about Clinton’s campaign. But the Democrats didn’t cooperate fully with U.S. investigators. “The president and the entire administration were dealing with an unprecedented incidence of the weaponization” of Russian cyberactivity, Podesta told reporters after

We know that President Obama had it in for Gen. Michael Flynn. The former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency was a persistent critic of Obama’s feckless policies, especially regarding ISIS. Obama reportedly advised president-elect Trump not to offer Flynn a high level position. According to this report from Circa, the FBI’s Andrew McCabe also had an ax to grind with Flynn. A few years ago, Robyn Gritz, a supervisory special agent, filed a discrimination/retaliation claim against the FBI. Flynn supported Gritz’s claim. According to Circa, he wrote a letter of support in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationery, backed

Former national security adviser and UN ambassador Susan Rice refuses to go quietly into retirement, even though she remains one of the most controversial figures of the Obama Administration. Now, thanks to a glowing profile in New York Magazine, we know that despite Susan Rice’s very public shortcomings (whatever happened to that dastardly filmmaker who spurred violence across the Middle East, anyway?), she believes any criticism of her tenure is at least partly the result of racism and sexism. When asked why she became a “target” in the Trump Administration, she replied, “I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about

King put out a series of tweets accusing Christians who supported the halt of “fake faith” after the Supreme Court allowed Trump’s immigration ban to go into effect.

The Supreme Court said Monday that most of President Trump’s travel ban executive order can go into effect, delivering the first major victory to the new administration on perhaps his most controversial policy to date. Justices said the lower court rulings that blocked Mr. Trump’s policy were far too broad, and said the president can begin to enforce his ban against foreigners who don’t already have some ties to the U.S. That means the president can begin denying visas to visitors from six countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — who don’t already have family in the U.S., or some other prior connection such as

Losing presidential candidates over the past quarter century have tended to become more popular in the months following the election. But former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has broken that trend, according to Gallup. The latest Gallup poll reveals that a majority of Americans, 57 percent, continue to view Secretary Clinton unfavorably. There has been no change in this percentage since January 2017. Clinton’s favorable rating hit an all-time low, 38 percent, early September last year. The highest it has ever been was 67 percent, which was in 1998 when she was first lady.
