Question of the Hour…GOP Congressmen Targeted?

Before the white-right screamers come up with the usual hysteria – whether this shooting was connected to anything political, or is nothing more than some domestic dispute.

We can expect the usual outpouring of fake outrage, fake sorrow, and bemoaning of violence.

Bullshit.

Republicans been cruising for this for years.

Hope this gets some attention from the Rethugs about their support of a traitor in the Whites Only House, firing up and enablement of racist and white supremacists, destruction of the healthcare plan in opposition to 66% of the voting public, and complete disregard for anything except Party ideology…

When that ideology over the needs of the country starts coming at a righteous price.

And while I certainly don’t support assassination, I really can’t help hoping in the “evil desires” file in the back of my mind – the next whacked out crazy from the left…Spends a bit more range time to improve his accuracy.

 

GOP baseball practice shooter identified as 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson

The man who shot at Republicans at their early morning baseball practice Wednesday has been identified as 66-year-old  James T. Hodgkinson.

The Washington Post reports that Hodgkinson is a resident of Belleville, Illinois and is the owner of a home inspection business. Records in St. Clair County, Illinois show that Hodgkinson in  April 2006 was charged with battery and aiding damage to a motor vehicle.

Per Huffington Post’s Sam Stein, Hodgkinson’s wife told ABC News that Hodgkinson had moved to Alexandria, Virginia two months ago. Hodgkinson’s home inspection license expired at the end of 2016 and had not been renewed.

His Twitter profile shows that Hodgkinson is a left-wing supporter of Bernie Sanders who has also posted several memes on his Facebook page critical of President Donald Trump. He also called Georgia Republican congressional candidate Karen Handel a “b*tch” for saying she didn’t support a living wage during a debate with Democratic rival Jon Ossoff.

Charles Orear, a 50-year-old restaurant manager from St. Louis, tells the Washington Post that he and Hodgkinson met while campaigning for Sanders in Iowa in 2016.

“You’ve got to be kidding me,” Orear told the Post. “I met him on the Bernie trail in Iowa, worked with him in the Quad Cities area.”

Yet Another Mass Murder

Nooooo…It couldn’t be the guns!

10 dead, 20 reportedly injured in shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon

At the moment, little is known about the circumstances surrounding a school shooting in Roseburg, Oregon. Authorities have confirmed that at least 10 people — and possibly as many as 15 — have been killed, including the gunman, with another 20 wounded at Umpqua Community College.

The first 911 calls reportedly were received at 10:38 a.m. Pacific Standard Time. David Jaques of the Roseburg Beacon told CNN that the shooting was confined to a single classroom, and that the shooter was male. Subsequent reports contradict Jaques’ report, however, saying that the shooter moved between multiple rooms before being “neutralized.” It’s unclear what “neutralized” means, although CNN’s Jake Tapper reported that the shooter is allegedly dead.

CNN is reporting that police told dispatchers that they had exchanged shots with a male on the south side of Snyder Hall. They obtained a transcript of the conversation between police and dispatchers via Douglas County officials.

A report from the Oregonian that the shooter posted a “warning” on social media earlier this morning. It is also possible that the shooter started this thread Wednesday night, but at the moment that can’t be confirmed — although CNN reports that “authorities believe it to authentic.”

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown (D) said in a news conference Thursday afternoon that the suspect was a 20-year-old male who is now deceased.

According to CNN, 3,300 full-time and over 13,000 part-time students attend what is largely a vocational college. The average age of students is 38, meaning that this college caters to older, part-time students.

CNN is reporting that Douglas County Commissioner Chris Boice said that the shooter has been detained, although authorities are still saying that the scene has not yet been secured. It is, however, no longer an active shooting situation. The campus is still in lockdown, although at least two school buses containing students who have been searched have left the campus.
