GOP Whip Steve Scalise & two Capitol Police Officers Shot

The Hill

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) is in stable condition after being shot early Wednesday at a baseball practice field in a Washington D.C. suburb, according to multiple reports.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that he heard as many as 50 shots. Paul described seeing shots land near aides who had taken cover on the ground.

One staffer, he said, scrambled over a fence to get away from the fire.

Paul credited Capitol Police, who were there to protect Scalise, with saving lives.

Two Capitol Police officers on protective detail were also reportedly shot in the incident.

The “multiple shooting” was reported in the 400 block of E. Monroe Street in Alexandria, Va., according to police.

The suspect is “believed in custody,” police said. Alexandria Police advised people to stay away from the area.

A reporter from Fox News also tweeted that staffers were hit.

    Before Scalise was shot, man asked if Republicans or Democrats were on field, rep says

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/06/14/before-scalise-was-shot-man-asked-if-republicans-or-democrats-were-on-field-rep-says.html

    A man asked whether Republicans or Democrats were on the field moments before the shooting at a congressional baseball practice outside Washington Wednesday morning, according to a congressman on the scene.

    Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., told Fox News that he left the practice minutes before the shooting. But before he did, he had a “very, very strange” encounter in the parking lot.

    “As I was getting into the car [with a colleague], there was a guy that walked up to us that was asking whether it was Republicans or Democrats out there. It was just a little odd,” he said.

      Michael Moore reports that No Animals were Injured during this focused shooting of Republicans as that would be unamerican and just wrong to hurt poor little dogs when there are conservatives to take out in the honor of abject socialism and hatred by liberals.

        Waiting got Moore to say he’s making a documentary movie to show that had Republicans have not resisted the total gun confiscation his previous documentary fought so hard for this gun violence would never have occurred. Word is that Mikey tripped while eating his way through a side of beef and, as soon as the AAA sends over the required heavy duty recovery equipment to roll him upright, he’ll Have Moore to say.

    Well….this what it has become.
    Try to FIX the nation’s ills, and MAGA, and the crazies are turned loose and incentivized to violence by media and by the enemies of the Nation that want to keep their private gravy trains going, and to demand that everyone follow their personal ideology or die.

    Reports that the police know the identity of the shooter but not releasing his name at this time.

    I heard a police rep talk about why they withhold the identity, at least in the “big city”. They want to execute search warrants on the suspect’s home, work, car etc. without interruption from the public, media, etc, not only to protect the integrity of evidence, but in case there may be “booby traps”. They also want to obtain internet records, cell phone records, and security camera footage in the area. All things I wouldn’t think of off hand.

    Woke to this as well. Woke. Lefties love this word, don’t they?

    Well, we’re woke to the Left, at least since Adolph himself.

    This is just a reminder, like the second alarm after we hit “snooze”.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4603404/Steve-Scalise-aides-SHOT-baseball-practice.html

    They like to keep reminding us that we’re the violent, hateful ones, every so often, by doing things like this.

    Remember, Gabby Giffords was shot by a Leftist because she wasn’t far enough to the Left.

    Sarah Palin got the blame. Which Republican are they going to blame this Isolated Incident on?

    I think the law should rain down “holy hell” on the shooter’s family, friends, neighbors, and acquaintances….drag them all in for intense questioning…and publish their names and testimony….bring LIGHT to these creeps and where they live and how they act and who supports them…..UNTIL we get RID of anonymous postings, and PC journalistic reporting and anonymous “sources” we are going to be led around by the nose. Make it painful to be seditious and to promote VIOLENCE.
    North Korea, ISIS, and Iran may not be our WORST enemy….the liberals, uniparty, and MSM may be the ones we should worry most about .

      I would add: outlaw the use of Passive Voice. It is Lying by Omission.

      “Violence broke out.” No, a bunch of Leftists attacked people.

      “Fights erupted.” No, a bunch of Dindoos attacked a single person and kicked him into a medically-induced coma.

      “Jews just up and died during the Holocaust.”

      No, German citizens in the thrall of a charismatic dictator killed a bunch of Jews.

      Passive Voice should be illegal. Lying intentionally to obscure the truth should be, too.

      Not until Christ’s return will this happen. These people in the press are getting more brazen each day in their intentionally obfuscating use of language.

        “I would add: outlaw the use of Passive Voice. It is Lying by Omission.”

        I had this same thought, I just saw an MSNBC picture labeled “gun fire breaks out at republican baseball practice.” So very deceptive, almost as if a gunfight broke out between gun slinging republicans.

    This is a direct result of the Trump is Hitler narrative that has been so scurrilously pushed by Comey, Clinton, Pelosi, Waters, McCain, McCain, McCain, (did I mention the evil McCain) the entire Never Trump cabal, the entire DNC, the MSM court jesters, et al.

    A man came to kill these men because he has believed a lie promoted by their evil words.

    Thank God Scalise’s security detail was there. If not there would have been a far worse massacre.

    Rodney Davis (R) was there and he is saying it is a result of “Political Rhetorical Terrorism.” Amen Davis, preach.

    Stay locked and loaded.

    War is here.

    Just put on the TV and heard republican Rep. Barton say that the climate of politics caused this and that the shooter decided to shoot at congressmen “who just happened to be republicans” . These people are so corrupt, so self interested, son incestuous, so tied at the hip that they lie right to our faces and expect us to keep them in power.

    USA Today calling on Mueller to recuse himself from the position of special prosecutor because of his close friendship with James Comey.

    Hmmm….. since when did USA care about objectivity?

    Curious. I think this lends positively to the idea that immunity for Comey may very well be part of the equation.

    I think we just heard the “second shot heard around the world.” I have been in a funk all day today after waking up to this horror. I had plans today to spray weeds, pick rocks, and weed eat. None of it happened. I truly believe we have reached the point of no return. Sooner than later someone is going to pull the pin. May God have mercy on our souls for letting it get this far.

    Hmmm… a “nutcase” leaves his wife of 30 years, hangs out at the YMCA, lives out of his van, is known to be very political, hates President Trump, has bought into the entire Russia/Hitler/and all the other ridiculous MSM rhetoric, loved Rachel Maddow, spoke with the former mayor of Alexandria, Virginia every morning for the last month, belonged to the Face Book group “Terminate Trump,” volunteered for Bernie Sanders and knew that the congressmen were practicing baseball and the time they were practicing baseball….. and we are supposed to believe that this was a lone wolf nutter inspired only by his own mind.

    No dots to be connected, move along folks.
