Shots were fired a little while ago in the opening round of the new Civil War.
Unlike Civil War I, Civil War II will feature liberal vs conservative, Republican vs. Democrat, and the rational against the nut jobs.
A massacre was avoided when capital police engaged the gunman in a firefight, apparently wounding him.
Liberals are praying that the shooter is a disgruntled white male racist. The worst news for liberals would be if a Muslim or Mexican turns out to be the shooter.
WASHINGTON — House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was among at least two people shot Wednesday morning during a GOP baseball practice at an Alexandria, Virginia, ball field, NBC News confirmed.
He was in stable condition, said two different senior-level GOP aides. One source said the Republican lawmaker was wounded in the hip area.
Two sources said at least one Capitol Police officer was also shot.
Police confirmed in tweets that it was investigating reports of a “multiple shooting” and that the suspect was “in custody” and “not a threat.” The victims were being rushed to the hospital.
Sen. Rand Paul, who was among the lawmakers at the scene, told MSNBC that Scalise as a House leader always has Capitol Police with him as security detail. Scalise has represented Louisiana’s 1st District since 2008. It was not immediately clear if the wounded officer was part of Scalise’s detail.
Rep. Steve Pearce of New Mexico tweeted that he was at the GOP’s baseball practice and was “alright.”
President Donald Trump released a statement after being briefed: “The Vice President and I are aware of the shooting incident in Virginia and are monitoring developments closely. We are deeply saddened by this tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the members of Congress, their staffs, Capitol Police, first responders, and all others affected.”
The calls for “gun control” (disarming law abiding citizens) will be coming on strong today.
More assorted reactions:
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and multiple other people were shot Wednesday morning in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia, NBC News has confirmed.
The shooting happened in the 400 block of E. Monroe Avenue. As many as five people were shot, according to NBC News, including the gunman.
A congressional aide said Scalise, R-La., was in stable condition at George Washington University Hospital.
Two Capital Police officers were among those shot as well. Those officers are with the dignitary protection unit.
Sen. Claire McCaskill tweeted early Wednesday that she had spoken to Capitol Police and that the officers “will be ok.”
President Trump issued a statement: “Vice President and I are aware of the shooting incident in Virginia and are monitoring developments closely. We are deeply saddened by this tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the members of Congress, their staffs, Capitol Police, first responders, and all others affected.”
The shooting happened during a baseball practice for congressional Republicans.
Witnesses described hearing Scalise “screaming for help” after the gunman shot his security detail.
“Scalise was on second base, and was crawling out, leaving trail of blood,” said Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., in an interview on CNN.
He was helped by other members of Congress, including Rep. Brad Wenstrup, R-Ohio. He “started doing what you need to do to stop the blood loss,” Brooks said.
Witness David Woodruff said he was running past the field when he heard 12 to 14 gunshots, a brief pause and then four more shots.
Woodruff said he ducked into a garage and called 911.
“Other witnesses here told me that they heard upwards of 60 shots. Again, it sounded like there was a rather lengthy gun battle between those Capitol protective detail and the assailant….,” Woodruff said.
He said he saw a U.S. Park Police helicopter depart with two victims and at least one ambulance leave with police protection.
Reba Winstead lives near the scene of the shooting, and says she heard at least 30 shots as she was getting her daughter dressed for school.
“Boom, boom, boom, boom for the first 10 our so, then there was a pause and then they started up again,” Winstead said. “It was just a calm morning and then all of a sudden there’s gunfire in our neighborhood. ”
Another apparent witness to the event, Benjamin Childers, wrote on Twitter that someone opened fire on a baseball field where congressional Republicans were practicing and he heard many shots.
“We had three members of Congress take shelter in our apartment,” he said on a live stream, as sounds of emergency vehicles could be heard. “The three weren’t shot.” NBC was reaching out to him for comment.
A baseball game was scheduled for Thursday, according to Roll Call.
Police confirmed that the suspect is in custody. Though they said there was no longer an active threat, all Alexandria schools are on “lock-in” status and police are advising residents to stay away from the area.
You may recall a group in the 1980s fronted by the Reverend Jerry Falwell called the Moral Majority.
Today it would have to be renamed the Moral Minority.
Americans today accept acts that my grandmother and her religious leaders would have condemned. In fact, much of what is acceptable today would have not even crossed my grandmother’s mind. She read the Bible every day and attended church at least three times a week.
Let’s remember that until the Supreme Court’s Lawrence decision in 2003 that homosexual acts were illegal in Texas (and some other states as well).
Not everyone on the alt-right is a traditionalist, but many of us are. We’ve lost the battle to preserve almost everything traditional, but maybe not the war, as society slowly falls apart while living on fake Federal Reserve money. When the big financial crisis hits, there will be nothing like the mother of all economic collapses to bring back traditionalism.
Over the past decade and a half, tolerance for polygamy has more than doubled among the American public. A similar trend applies to human cloning.
Stunning as they are, these findings from the latest Gallup survey of moral opinion in the U.S. may tell more about the political future than the daily drama surrounding President Donald Trump.
To be sure, the percentage declaring polygamy and human cloning “morally acceptable,” in Gallup’s phrase, remains small: Seventeen percent are OK with the former; 14 percent, the latter. Neither is likely to become legal soon.
Yet the speed with which these formerly fringe ideas have moved toward the mainstream is significant and consistent with Gallup’s broader finding: Since 2001, there has been a clear and, apparently, irreversible, move toward more permissive or, to use Gallup’s word, “liberal” social norms.
“Libertarian” might be a better term. Gallup documents what can only be called a strong live-and-let-live consensus regarding several practices — birth control, divorce, sex between unmarried adults, gay or lesbian relations, out-of-wedlock childbearing — that within living memory were either fiercely contested or taboo. All garnered at least 62 percent acceptance in the poll, conducted just a month ago. Doctor-assisted suicide is trending up and now stands at 57 percent acceptance.
Taboos are weakening against pornography (acceptance up six points to 36 percent since 2011) and sex between teenagers (acceptance up four points to 36 percent since 2013). Meanwhile, new taboos are developing against wearing fur and medical testing on animals. Only adultery remains as unacceptable as in 2001; just 9 percent tolerate it.
In short, the culture wars may be ending in victory for progressives, with the caveat that a left-right frame is misleading regarding some issues — opposition to pornography, for example, has been a rare point of agreement between the religious right and left-wing feminists.
Americans are not only far more willing to countenance formerly taboo practices, they are also much less interested in government protection of “traditional values” than they were in the not-so-distant past.
It has been six years since another poll, by CNN/ORC, found for the first time that more Americans said the government should “not favor any set of values” rather than “promote traditional values.”
As of the most recent poll, in late 2014, 55 percent preferred a value-neutral government. No one would have predicted that just after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, when CNN/ORC found that 59 percent of Americans favored government promotion of traditional values, an all-time high.
Maybe that galvanizing moment gave way to the multiple disappointments and disillusions of the Iraq war and the financial crisis, which in turn bred broader doubts about government’s ability to do anything right, let alone foster moral values, and perhaps about the values themselves.
Another explanation, though, is that Gallup’s numbers confirm a long-standing postwar trend first identified by political scientist Ronald Inglehart of the University of Michigan, who has argued that Western societies’ turn from traditional values to individual autonomy and self-expression reflects their growing economic security, notwithstanding periodic wars and recessions.
The satisfaction of basic material needs, on a consistent basis, provides time and space for cultural, sexual and spiritual experimentation. Conversely, Inglehart has argued, members of society who feel least secure, materially and otherwise, continue to derive meaning from tradition and react against perceived threats to it emanating from the political sphere.
One interpretation of the overwhelming support of the country’s most religious, tradition-minded voters for a thrice-married, hedonistic tycoon is that it demonstrates their desperation to stop the progressive cultural wave.
Then again, data from Gallup and other sources show such wide moral acceptance of nontraditional norms that the new consensus must include plenty of Trump voters as well. The main exceptions to that consensus are abortion and gun control, about which a relatively even and highly partisan divide persists — and which candidate Trump exploited to win over red-state voters who might otherwise have distrusted him.
Jews in academia and media preaching tolerance for every vice and hatred for every virtue are not even mentioned in any of the analyses of moral degeneracy you’ll see in the MSM. I’m sure Professor Inglehard thinks he’s on to something with his economic theory of vice, and there’s probably some truth to it, but to ignore the Jewish role in perversion and degeneracy is disingenuous.
The response to yesterday’s mass shooting of seven people brought forth the usual immediate liberal responses: Guns must be confiscated. It’s Trump’s fault.
Now that it’s clear that the shooter was a white male and the victim’s predominantly black, I expect that Twitter will be abuzz with the usual anti-white, anti-male racism.
I specualate that the shooter, Peter Selis, lost his cool over an annoying, noisy black pool party at the apartment complex where he lived. Police have not yet ascribed a motive to the shootings however.
A car mechanic casually held a beer in one hand while shooting seven people – all non-whites – at a San Diego-area apartment complex pool.
An eighth man was injured as he fled the scene.
The mass shooter, who was shot to death by police, was identified as Peter Selis, 49, a white man who lived in the luxury apartment complex. Witnesses said he smirked as he calmly shot people after being invited to join the pool party. He was a service technician at a San Diego-area Ford car dealer whose life was crumbling under financial stress and a mountain of credit card debt.
According to police, the victims included four African-American females, two African-American males, one Hispanic male, and an African-American-male who broke his arm fleeing. Police have not yet labeled the mass shooting a hate crime, however, as they say the motive is under investigation.
Several of the victims were reportedly in critical condition after the April 30 shooting at the University City apartment complex, according to Fox 5 San Diego. It was later reported that one victim, a female, has died. Her name has not yet been released.
Witnesses described a “relaxed” looking gunman who clutched a beer in one hand while opening fire at multiple people with another. When he wasn’t spraying people with gunfire, he was saying to others “You can either leave or you can stay here and die,” reported the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Selis “was reportedly drinking a beer during the gunfire according to a witness who spoke to CBS News 8,” that television station reported. NBC7 interviewed a witness who said, “there’s a view of the pool area where we could see the shooter sitting there with a beer in one hand and the gun in the other. He looked pretty relaxed.”
David Phillips told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the shooting erupted at his best friend’s birthday party and as he was returning from the bathroom. “He said he immediately got on the ground. His best friend was among those shot,” the newspaper reported, quoting Phillips as saying, “It was like the Twilight Zone. I really can’t explain what happened.”
According to the police chief, eight people were transported to the hospital. They were: four African- American females, all shot; two African-American males; 1 Hispanic male; and 1 African-American male who broke his arm “fleeing the gunfire.”
“It is with extremely sad heart that we report that one of the females has passed away,” the chief said.
Police, though, are stopping short of labeling the mass shooting a hate crime, and they say it’s not yet clear whether Selis knew any of the victims.
Police shot the gunman to death when he started firing in their direction.
“The suspect pointed the gun at our officers and three of our officers fired on the suspect and the suspect went down and the suspect is deceased,” San Diego Police chief Shelley Zimmerman said in a news conference.
Selis’ court history shows that he was collapsing under the weight of financial problems, including a mountain of credit card debt.
San Diego court records show a legal separation with minor children in the marriage of Peter Selis and his wife, Michelle Selis, that dates to 2008. There is a 2013 wedding registry at Macy’s for Peter Selis and a woman named Patricia Martinez. Her Facebook page does not carry any mention of him, however. Peter Selis’ own Facebook page appears to have been deleted.
Peter Selis also had a 1998 family court case from Idaho labeled “reciprocal support family law.”
A 2015 Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing exists in the name of Peter Raymond Selis and lists as a joint debtor, his spouse, Patricia Martinez. The filing listed assets of $14,100 and liabilities of $108,028.
The Feds cleaned up Al Capone’s Chicago. It looks like they need to clean up (((Rahm Emanuel’s))) Windy City.
Americans voted for law and order. It’s coming.
Chicago’s problem isn’t a gun problem. It’s a blacks with guns problem.
President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday night about Chicago’s violence, saying he will “send in the Feds!” if the city “doesn’t fix the horrible ‘carnage’ going on.”
Trump’s tweet refers back to a line in his inaugural address Friday about “the crime, and the gangs, and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential. This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.”
A spokesman for Mayor Rahm Emanuel referred reporters to an interview on WTTW-Ch. 11 Tuesday night. Asked in that conversation about the White House website under the Trump administration citing violence in Chicago, Emanuel said that federal agencies including the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives already do help the city, but more could be done.
“There’s a lot the federal government can do,” Emanuel said, citing gun control, use of federal resources to track illegal guns and federal prosecutions. “And also, fundamentally, in my view, also help fund additional police officers.
“Over the years the federal government’s stepped back their resources, which we have stepped up. The federal government can be a partner, and to be honest they haven’t been for decades.”
In August, candidate Trump said “very top police” in Chicago had told him the city’s crime problem could be stopped in a week with tougher tactics.
The comment came in an interview with Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, who had asked him how Chicago’s violence could be quelled.
“How?” said Trump. “By being very much tougher than they are right now. They’re right now not tough. I could tell you this very long and quite boring story. But when I was in Chicago, I got to meet a couple of very top police. I said, ‘How do you stop this? How do you stop this? If you were put in charge — to a specific person — do you think you could stop it?’ He said, ‘Mr. Trump, I’d be able to stop it in one week.’ And I believed him 100 percent.”
There’s a clash waiting to happen here. Emanuel is talking about liberal “solutions” to crime, such as more gun control. Trump is talking about getting tough with the scum who rule the mean streets of Chicago.
Advice to law abiding citizens of Chicago: Avoid the groid with a gun.
Unrepentant killer Dylann Roof has gotten what he desired–the death penalty.
Today’s sentencing phase of his murder/hate crime trial revealed a unanimous jury vote calling for the baby faced killer to die for his crimes.
Opinion on Twitter at #DylannRoof is mixed, with some saying he would be punished more by a life sentence in a heavily Negro prison.
It’s interesting that Anders Breivik killed 77 people and only received a 21 year sentence in Norway. American justice and Norwegian justice are miles apart in how racially motivated killings should be punished.
It came as no surprise that a federal jury recommended the death penalty for Dylann Roof, the unapologetic, unrepentant young man who in June 2015 massacred nine African Americans inside a historic church in Charleston, S.C. Not only did he deliberately target innocent parishioners in the midst of Bible study for the sole purpose of advancing the cause of white supremacy, but the trial was as one-sided as could be. Deliberations took less than three hours.
Given the indisputable evidence of guilt and premeditation, the only possible defense against the charges would have been insanity. However, Roof’s rejection of mental illness as an affirmative defense at trial and as mitigation in sentencing speaks volumes about his mission. Such a legal strategy would, from his perspective, have negated any legitimacy to his hateful agenda. It would have suggested that his racist ideology was merely a product of a diseased mind, not a valid political position. Even as he stood firing round after round at his helpless victims, Roof proclaimed, “I’m not crazy,” according to witness testimony.
Roof’s statement that he doesn’t hate blacks, but rather hated their behavior, offers an insight into how almost every white, Asian, and even Mexican person feels. It’s not the color of the skin, but the destructive effect that blacks have on civilization that he says motivated his misguided crime.
At the bottom of this post, I’ve added a comment by a Czech citizen who claims that globalist Jews are up to trying to massively import more Muslims into the Czech Republic. Optimistically, he claims the Czechs are on to the Jewish plot.
On the heels of Czech President Milos Zeman’s warnings of a possible “super-Holocaust” carried out by Muslim terrorists, urging citizens to arm themselves, WaPo reports the country’s interior ministry is pushing a constitutional change that would let citizens use guns against terrorists if police are delayed or unable to make their way to the scene of an attack.
Czech president Milos Zeman had previously proposed that economic migrants should be deported from Europe to “uninhabited Greek islands” or to “empty places” in North Africa. The spectacularly incredible president also proposed that the Greek debt should be progressively reduced in return for shouldering the cost of hosting hundreds of thousands economic migrants.
“We are in Greece, and Greece has plenty of uninhabited islands, and big foreign debt. So if you have ‘hotspots’ in Greek islands, this would be a sort of payment of foreign debt,” Zeman told Financial Times in an interview on the islands of Rhodes where he participated in the Rhodes Forum.
As The Guardian previously noted, the Czech president has unleashed a rhetorical fusillade against Muslim incomers of such intensity that it makes the anti-Islamic sentiments of Robert Fico, the Slovakian prime minister, and even Viktor Orbán, Hungary’s prime minister, seem mild in comparison.
