Republicans in Congress Targeted By Democrat Party Assassin – GOP Whip Steve Scalise and Three Others Shot…

GOP House Majority Whip Steve Scalise is in a stable condition after a rabid left-wing activist named James Hodgkinso, 66, opened fire upon the house republican baseball team during practice Wednesday morning.

James T. Hodgkinson was a former campaign volunteer for Bernie Sanders. After asking if those practicing were Democrats or Republicans, he opened fire on players with a high powered rifle from the third base dugout (Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria, Virginia) The group was taking grounders and practicing batting at around 7.00am.

Zachary Barth, a congressional staffer for Texas Rep. Roger Williams, was also shot but is expected to fully recover.  Two US Capitol Police officers who were accompanying Scalise were wounded as they exchanged fire with the gunman. They are both in a ‘good condition’ in hospital.

(Via Daily Mail) […]  Scalise’s office said while he was undergoing emergency surgery at MedStar Washington Hospital Center that he was in ‘stable condition.’  ‘Prior to entering surgery, the Whip was in good spirits and spoke to his wife by phone,’ a spokesperson said.

He is grateful for the brave actions of U.S. Capitol Police, first responders, and colleagues.’

Texas Rep. Roger Williams tweeted that Barth, a legislative correspondent in his office, was being treated in hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.  Barth wrote on Facebook shortly after: ‘I got shot this morning at the baseball fields but I am in the hospital and okay. Thank you for the thoughts and prayers.

Michigan Rep. Mike Bishop described how one man – thought to be part of Scalise’s Capitol Police protection detail – stood his ground to return fire as the congressmen and at least one of their children dove for cover in a dugout and Scalise dragged himself across the field after being hit, leaving a trail of blood behind him.

He told CBS Detroit: ‘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. 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.’

He said: ‘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.

‘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.’

President Donald Trump also praised the two cops for their ‘heroic actions’, saying ‘many lives’ would have been lost if they had not been there.

‘Congressman Scalise is a friend and a very good friend. He’s a patriot and he’s a fighter. He will recover from this assault and Steve, I want you to know that you have the prayers, not only of the entire city behind you, but of an entire nation and, frankly, the entire world,’ Trump said.

‘Many lives would have been lost if not for the heroic actions of the two Capitol Police officers who took down the gunman despite sustaining gunshot wounds during a very, very brutal assault.

‘Melania and I are grateful for their heroism and praying for the swift recovery of all victims.’

The group was practicing for a charity match which is due to take place on Thursday at Nationals Park when they were attacked. Three men escaped and took shelter in an apartment building nearby. (read more)

The shooter was 66-year-old James T Hodgkison (FACEBOOK HERE) A Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer.

    Remember these are the same US Capitol Police officers that allowed terrorism and acts of violence to proceed all day long on Inauguration Day. US Capitol Officers that vote heavy left and usually do not protect right leaning people. I have very little respect at all for US Capitol Police.

    However, this was a shooting of Congressional people so they had to do something to save face. If it was you or I and the group were chanting anti-Trump they would have let us get injured and done nothing or very little. And it would have been buried in the news cycles.

    How many acts of violence against Trump supporters have they allowed in the US Capitol. Lack of fair and just policing sets up the environment that gives many more shooters wings to do something. – just like today. They are emboldened by chronic lack of enforcement of certain groups.

              From all that I have seen re. his facebook activity and his political activism, he could just as easily have been a dissed off conservative fed up w/dimms. He definitely crossed the line but we all know that there are those out there who could just as easily be so fed up with the dimms that they would also cross the line.

              Granted, the dimmms have more violent followers/nut jobs than pubs., but we are not immune from nut jobs being among us. We can only pray that they don’t cross the line.

    “a rabid left-wing activist named James Hodgkinso…”

    This is the kind of spin I see all the time in the mainstream media. We can figure out for ourselves that this guy is nuts, and the article points out that he is a Sanders supporter so we can deduce that he is left-wing. We are smart enough that we don’t need the spin.

    On another note:

    Republicans didn’t screw Bernie, the Democrats did. Shouldn’t a Bernie supporter be more mad at the Dems? I guess it goes to show how successful the MSM brainwashing has been.

    And yet another note:

    It will be interesting to watch the inevitable gun control debate that will follow. Every publicized shooting seems to spawn one. But this time the victims are gun supporters, and the anti-gunners are the enemies of the victims. I see the Republicans are already claiming that the presence of additional guns (in the hands of good guys) saved lives. I agree with this, but it will be interesting to follow this debate.

    From the article linked above:

    The seemingly fractured Democratic Party may face another setback ahead of the 2018 elections, Peter Doocy reported.

    Supporters of progressive Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said they want to start their own party.

    The organizers said they want to focus on the future after their current party’s last presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, seemed to focus on the past.

    Sanders called for “fundamental change” during a speech in Illinois over the weekend.

    Doocy said a document calling for the organization of a “People’s Party” began circulating recently.

        I can’t help but blame Obama for the escalation of this. We have never had a president turn out to be such an unethical, irresponsible, lying, conniving – yet proud peacock – before. Like the proverbial spoiled, narcissistic child. Add to it, all the preening Democrat Hollywood stars and Pop icons, and you’ve got a volatile mix of people who have one thing in common – burned out consciences and evil. There’s no more way to deny it. Denial is what got us this far in the first place. People do in fact have the ability to choose to be evil. Free will. Obama set the pace and his supporters have kept up with him.

        When there’s a show down between good and evil, good will always win. Perhaps good people will soon have enough, and take a stand. No one likes war but sometimes it is all that is left. The Bible admonishes us to flee from evil, rather than try to manage it on our own. Perhaps people like Paul Ryan have enough conscience left in him, that the Good Lord can still get through to him. He is our first line of defense, but the GOP better take a stand soon. They’ve been dilly-dallying around the edges in order of avoidance. We’ll see. Time is coming close. You can feel it.

          I thought about that as well, but I’m seeing he was practicing shooting a couple of months ago, (and he was a bad shot, so the gun was probably a recent acquisition). So, my guess is that he was planning this for a couple of months.

          Of course yesterday could have made him go through with it,

    All one needs to realize of the moral depravity of the left is to notice that neither Schmuckie Schumer, Perplexed Pelosi, et al; democrats have said a word of condemnation and moved to tamp down the violent rhetoric and actions of their rabble rouser followers and fake news media.

    Blood on your hands.

    Disgusting.

    Did the protection people do a great job? No.
    Did the shooter act smart? No.

    Having been in the service during the Vietnam war as a fighting Navy Seabee who trained to fight and build and trained with some Navy Seals and Marines.

    If you are hired to be a protection service to protect high profile people, you have to assume anybody nearby may target your people. These officers only responded after shooting started and a number of shots were fired. If you are protecting someone and a number of shots are fired before you react, good chances are your person(s) is dead. Fail.

    The officers should have inspected all people in the areas and treated all nearby people as potential assassins, especially since MSM and Dems have been calling for violence against conservatives and Republicans. Would I hire these officers for private protection. Absolutely Not. They get a C grade at best. The people they were protecting would all be dead with a good shooter.

    Shooter fail – The shooter seeing his key targets failed to used good military strategy. Good strategy would mean you would take out the strongest force against you first – the officers. Then you would have easy pickings to take out ALL the rest. Fail.

    The officers did no better than the average person with a gun carry would have done. Their job was to protect first. Not after many shots fired. Average work.

      I heard the security officers were in plain clothes. Not sure if that is accurate, but if so, would that not explain why they were not taken out first?

      I think it’s very strange though, that the most serious of the shooting victims happens to be the person with the security detail guarding him. Just seems like kind of a strange coincidence to me considering the number of the people on the field.

    Why is this the only photo of the Democrat baseball team, that was also practicing this morning, at another location in Alexandria?

    Democrat Baseball Team Prays For Republican Colleagues After Shooting
    http://thehill.com/sites/default/files/styles/thumb_small_article/public/blogs/demprayersshooting.jpg?itok=OuBroW3g
    From liberal site DailyWire: “The powerful moment was captured and tweeted out by Democratic Rep. Ruben J. Kihuen.”

    The Republican team members were all wearing red shirts, jackets, caps, with “R” on them…why aren’t the Dems suited up in their blue versions?

    Is this really a photo of the Democratic team this morning?

    Just wondering…

    What type of rifle was it. I heard AR-47 – no such thing. Was it an AK-47, or an AR-15, or AR-10.
    Am curious, because it would explain the wounds. and his lack of accuracy.

    I hope nobody here misses the fact that the International Left is the same here as it has been everywhere….There’s about 15% of the population that is loon-Left/Marxist, and would deal with each and every one of us as they currently talk about dealing with our leadership now…..

    The Killing Fields or a French Revolution could happen here and neighbors who smile at us in the street are just as capable of murder as any historical Leftists. If we don’t stand up to them and INSIST that the media and pols call this what it is, we WILL have to fight them later.

        Yep, just look at the makeup of the Bolsheviks in Russia….Elites both educational and monied, plus the lower class and ethnic minorities from other countries. Its the same crew thats being put together, with the elites using their power, position and money to manipulate the idiots to carry the pitchforks and torches.

    Should be true but definitely is not true…their actions show otherwise.

    Many despise the people of this country and love only themselves and are beholding to whomever is pulling their strings.

    We can never forget the pattern and practice of violence perpetrated by the Democratic power elite during the reign of President Obama. Some examples are: gun running to Mexican Drug Cartels in Fast and Furious, SEIU enforcers man handling opponents of Obamacare at rallies, shutting down the Government and not allowing Veterans to visit the WW 2 Memorial, IRS targeting, Benghazi Abdication and resulting lies, Inciting violence in Ferguson, Baltimore, etc., BLM chanting “What do we want, dead Cops, when do we want it, now” and the subsequent murders of Police Officers, Shutting down a Trump rally in Chicago due to violence, violence against Trump Supporters in San Jose, Ca., Democratic operative Bob Creamer sponsored violence, Hillary Clinton e-mail and Clinton Foundation graft ,CNN employees giving questions to Hillary before the Hillary/ Bernie debate, Violence at Government University with no punishment, etc.

      Good list. Add on the multiple rants on college campuses across the country to keep moderate and conservative speakers from INVITATIONS to address audiences or graduations, and we see an on-going effort to feed the fires of rebellion against any type of traditional discourse.

    I posted this on other shooting thread, thought was relevant here too:
    You know what’s odd when Jeff Flake and the others with him had the interaction with shooter just before the shooting? When shooter asked them are those players republicans or democrats what they didn’t notice about him? Where was the rifle at that moment? What was the guy carrying when he spoke with them? Was he already set up in the woods? Witness said he asked the question then headed in direction of field.

    So the guy drives from Illinois to DC (I assume). Checks into a motel (I assume). Then somehow knows that the Republicans will be practicing at 0700 that morning and know exactly which field they are on. Goes there, verifies the information and starts shooting. He acted alone…..yeah right.
