Do you LOVE America?



    James T. Hodgkinson, the man identified as the shooter behind attacks on Congressional Republicans Wednesday morning, has died following a shootout with the Capitol Police.

    Hodgkinson was 66 years old and  was taken to George Washington University Hospital after he was shot at least twice by police after he unloaded at least 50 shots at a charity baseball game.

    According to his Facebook page, Hodgkinson was an ardent Bernie Sanders supporter and socialist.

    President Trump confirmed the shooter’s death in comments delivered this morning:

      1. …Can’t we all just get along???

        • Nope

        • Rodney King, get off the crackpipe.

        • I know this may sound insensitive but is Congress not in session on Wednesday as well as the Weekend? Trekker Out

          • MT… it was super early in the morning. 7:15 am. It was a practice. I actually thought it was nice to see them up and exercising.

            • They were practicing for a charity game

      2. The shooter is dead? GOOD! One less commie POS breathing. Kudos to the two Capital Policemen who shot him despite being wounded themselves. Rep. Scalise is in stable condition. Don’t know about the other wounded just yet. I can already hear Feinstein, Schumer, and the other libturd scum crying for ‘gun control’, knowing they don’t have the political support for it now.

        • This guy shoots between 50 and 100 rounds at a bunch of sitting ducks in an open field with a long arm semi auto and kills none while only injuring 3?

          I’m glad his toll wasn’t higher, but what does this say about a civil war with the left? Strangely, I don’t really feel threatened.

          • Don’t be complacent just yet. Some of them are military trained and ARE dangerous. Besides, anyone who can’t hit the broad side of a barn can still use a knife or throw ordnance downgrade.

            • DOWNRANGE,

              Hate spell check

              • One antifa down, the gunman leaked too much of the red stuff

                • Yep, Didn’t take long for the Lefty Scum to come out and want to ban guns again.

                  Governor Terry McAuliffe Calls for Gun Control at Scene of Baseball Shooting Incident
                  by The_Real_Fly – Jun 14, 2017 12:17 PM

                  • Well this proves assault weapons are safe. About 100 rounds fired and only he died hahaha

                  • I’m actually surprised.

                    Isn’t it all a-ok when it’s in their favor? That’s their usual MO.

                    I was waiting for the “brave victim pushed over the edge by a terrible unjust fascist police state” blah blah blah bullshit from the likes of Hillary.

                  • McAuliffe can get f#$%ed.

            • These Libs seem to have a common look, this guy has to be related to that Liberal Bob Beckle that was on “The Five” on Fox.

          • SterlingSilv,
            I think you are right. Liberal buys gun, and never goes to the range to practice or even sight it in. The guy spent more time watching Rachel Maddow feeding his hate, than becoming well regulated with his weapon.

            All shots hit low, lots of leg shots and hip shots. You can bore sight a rifle and get better results. Today we have laser cartridges that can bring you even closer to MOA without ever firing a shot.

            • Apparent correction by police, the shooter was caught illegally discharging said assault weapon on his property inside city limits. No charges filed……….

        • The only good thing about this is that this idiot leftist was a piss poor shot. They will be quick to die when civil war 2.0 commences.

          • OTHER BREAKING NEWS>…. Dennis Rodman visits North Korea and gets an American released from Prison.

            North Korea Releases US Student Following Rodman Visit
            06-14-2017 • by Tyler Durden
            The announcement came just hours after Dennis Rodman arrived in North Korea for an unexpected trip, as reported last night. Warmbier, a University of Virginia student from Cincinnati, was sentenced in March after a televised tearful public confession to trying to steal a propaganda banner.

            “At the direction of the President, the Department of State has secured the release of Otto Warmbier from North Korea,” Tillerson said in a statement. “Mr. Warmbier is en route to the U.S. where he will be reunited with his family.”

            What he really meant is that Dennis Rodman’s unique style of “diplomacy” appears to have achieved what neither Tillerson himself, nor the previous administration had been capable of.

            Tillerson’s statement gave no other details and made no mention of Rodman’s visit. But it noted that the State Department is continuing “to have discussions” with North Korea about the release of other American citizens who are jailed there. The statement said the department would have no further comment on Warmbier, citing privacy concerns.

            *** IN exchange Rodman promised Topless Women’s Basket Ball Tournament in N Korea. hahaha Just kidding.. Who knows, he may have used it as a bargaining chip.

            • Fantastic! Thanks for the update. I have been screaming about sending Rodman to NK. Its crazy but heck it gets results!

              • A nut dealing with a nut. Maybe if we sent Charles Manson over?

          • Menzo, I know I can shoot better than any libturd out there.

            • BH..You Think

        • The Deplorable Braveheart

          “The shooter is dead? GOOD!”

          Actually bad. I would like to crawl through his past, connect dots that often get erased to see if this is “random” or “contrived” by TPTB to alter Congressional pro gun votes and derail legislation.

          These people “Check Out” thus closing the book to a great degree.

          • Kevin2, I understand your concern and also believe it’s a plausible scenario, but I believe a lot of info on him can and will still come to light regardless. The book will probably be more open than you think.

            • Isn’t shooting at tyrannical Politicians and removing them from office by death protected under the 1st Amendment as a matter of expression and distrust, and by killing them to remove them from office by force, protected under the 2nd Amendment? Says it right in there,… Why heck, open season folks.

              • CSS, stop and think. This could be a false flag. The antigun lobby is notorious for these.

                • You have just made some sense out of all the noise on this.
                  False flags come in many different styles, shapes, and colors.

              • CrackSumSkulls,
                Your call to violence in a public forum makes me think you are some kind of FBI shill, fishing for people you can set up.

                Next thing we’ll hear, is you asking for help to cut your Ruby Ridge memorial shotgun to 17 inches!

                People don’t feed these trolls, I especially saw too much of this rhetoric the other day in the article on Militias, just days before this shooting in Virginia.

                You absolutely have a right to your opinion, and as I do scream my craziest thoughts at the TV when I see stupid politicians being real jerks, but stop with the online violent rhetoric.

                Today’s crazy online statements could be used against you, if you had to protect yourself or family on the street tomorrow.

                This VA shooters online persona is an open book of hate. There’s nothing redeeming in his politics, conversation, or rhetoric. Avoid that trap.

            • I thought that all these stadiums now had TSA security. So nobody had a gun except the shooter. I smell bullshit. I wonder if Hillary brought in the gun.

            • The Deplorable Braveheart

              Having the shooter expire makes closure easier. Regardless if TPTB are behind it the word “Official Investigation” means a successful agglomeration of falsehoods so well packaged that they appear to be plausible. Bobby Kennedy was the Attorney General for a long period that his brothers assassination was being ” Officially Investigated” and lets all acknowledge the depth of the 911 “Official Investigation”.

              I have no doubt that killers are being “manufactured” today by TPTB to be used if necessary “as needed” in the future. They are white, black, yellow, red and for all I know alien grey. Their politics run right, left and center and their religious affiliation or no affiliation or belief. TPTB are probably surprised when its really a natural nut case and wonder, “So who put this crackpot up to this”?

        • The Free Shit Army is rising.

          • RL,

            You can say that again! There were folks that were clapping their hands when they heard the news and seriously disappointed that SS was not Berned to death by the assasin. The FSA in the n’hood refer to him as a KKK.

            Steve Scalis is a true patriot. Keep him, his family, and all those risking their lives on our behalf in your prayers. The Demonrats, the NWO crowed have been getting bolder in their calls for President Trump’s head and have been promoting ISIS style stabbings in their theaters ?. The 2A is the only thing holding them back. Look at how bold they have become in Kalifornia where the ‘good’ guys are truly outnumbered and getting swarmed. The action is getting closer and closer to home.

            Standing strong,

            Louisiana Eagle ?

            • Laeagle, the hoodrats always lie about white people. Nothing new there. They never have any credibility.

        • Dems have proven you can’t reasonably have a conversation, they are not interested in finding truth

          • They can’t even collate facts for themselves and derive truth, it has to fit their world view or it’s false.

            Very illogical people.

        • If anything this should prove we need more people carrying guns in order to defend against these types of radical socialist/communists. What if no one at the scene had a gun? Also there should be no gun free zones, after all your criminal communist element will ignore the fact it is a gun free zone like this one did. Waiting

      3. Execute order 66 against the socialists

      4. This is just the beginning. Wait until the ultra right wing citizens get involved. . . it’s going to be open season on politicians from the local level to the feds.

        • Hey Confederate, You saying the Politicians will be in the middle of a cross fire? Fromm the Right and Left? Good!! I’ll put my money on the Right. Let Er’ Rip!!

      5. Virginia democrat Governor just said to the press that we lose 93 million Americans PER DAY to gun violence.

        If this is the message from the Left, I think they’ll lose even more votes in the mid terms

        • A peaceful transition of power is now only to be read about in unburned history books. The charred ones are that pile of ashes beside the torn down Confederate statues.

        • Wow! Oh wait.

          93 Million people per day
          X 365 days per year
          That’s 33,945,000,000 per year or almost 34 Trillion people each and every year lost due to gun violence.

          OK. So why is overpopulation a problem?

          He is just pissed that police offed 10 or more of his Democratic voters.

          • According to McAuliffe, America will be empty of all Americans by this time on Saturday. We’ll all be dead by gun violence. I’m getting all my affairs in order as time is running out!

        • 93 MILLION ??????

          This is why the Virginia Governor is leaving office

          He later changed it to 93 people a day, let take in consideration suicides, gang violence, accidents.

          How many people have died in car accidents ? cancer ? today????

        • Lefties are just Pissed that they lost the election. And now the Food Stamp roles in Alabama have been reduced by 85% since the able bodied Lefties refuse to work as a requirement to be eligible for food stamps. That’s how you fix all of this, force them to work for the Freebees. They will all quit and be reduced to skinny hungry losers, instead of Big Fat Losers. Saving working Taxpayer a bundle. Good JOB!!

        • SS, what’s that VA libturd governor smoking? I want to try some. [JUST KIDDING]

        • If we lose 93 million Americans per day to gun violence, then the country will be completely depopulated in less than 4 days.

        • 93 million a DAY? That’s almost exactly the number it would take to sink the island of Guam, according to another like McAuliffe.

      6. Good riddance..too bad it was only one eliminated…..

      7. The FBI is investigating…Thank God Comey is gone….it might disappear as a “matter” under a stack of classified found email and photos of the former AG’s Tarmac meetings he was “concerned about”….One can hope that AG Sessions ignores the hysterical leftists “Russian election interference” claims and gets down to the real business of pursuing prosecuting and persecuting Americas DOMESTIC terrorist problems with a REAL FBI Director.

        • NJ, I saw an article over the weekend at breitbart that Sessions’ people found a ‘slush fund’ that Holder and Lynch maintained PER OBAMA for funding leftist groups including Black Lives Matter and ordered those funds cut off like yesterday.

          • They did, it was common for liberal judges to render judgements against corporations and require additional punitive payments to leftist groups, like La Raza and such.

            The La Raza goes out and registers voters with the new money.

      8. I’d would have loved to hear him implicate his democrat buddies?

      9. its a shame the shooter has died, you cant waterboard dead people

        • It was a win Win either way

      10. Of course the shooter is dead, that’s how TPTB cleanup the lose ends.

      11. And the shooter just happened to know that Republicans would
        be practicing softball at said location at 5:30 AM. I almost
        wish he hadn’t of died and could be questioned. Of course with the state of federal law enforcement, I doubt they would
        have done a real investigation.

      12. Maybe more than 50 rounds fired. At least half of those were probably from the two police officers. The shooter may have been hit right after the beginning of the shootout. So he wasn’t a very good shot but his aim may have been disrupted by the combat situation. Things to be considered.

        • I was thinking the same thing! Thank god he was a crappy shot-and so typical. CNN is already making excuses for him and the Governor is calling for more gun control. I think it might be more appropriate if we have liberals go to counseling so they can learn how to deal with life and how to cope when they don’t get their way. I heard something on the radio the other day and it summed it up pretty good- The only thing Trump is guilty of is hurting your feelings. Deal with it. This country has turned into a bunch of sniffling cry babies. It will only get worse because every time I think the lib’s have hit rock bottom, they find a bottom and continue on.

      13. I believe in non-violence. Not so the left. EVER SINCE ROBESPIERRE, the left has been murdering, killing and oppressing. Black Book of Communism, Oxford Univ. Press puts their toll at 100 million last century. And here is this vile, despicable, evil comment from the equally disgusting, vile, evil Wee Willy Ayers:

        “…we’re also going to make it clear that when a pig gets iced that’s a good thing, and that everyone who considers himself a revolutionary should be armed, should own a gun, should have a gun in his house.”
        – Bill Ayers, leftist activist and confidant of gun control happy Barack Obama, in A Strategy To Win, appearing in New Left Notes, September 12, 1969

        The truth is, to the fascist left, only POWER matters. It is, as Greg Kandra said
        “The horrifying truth is this: we live now in a culture that not only does not respect life, but discards it like trash — not only at the beginning of life, but also at the end, and every place in between. What has happened to us?” (I’ll tell you what happened. The fascist left, the radical gays and feminazis took over)

        Non-violence is the way forward. Of course self-defense as described by Blackstone is not violence. If you are attacked by someone like this madman, you can defend yourself as recognized by virtually all laws

        • One should believe in violence.
          One should choose to use it only when necessary.
          One cannot ignore it or the people that use it everyday. They would use it against one should one not recognize, or choose to ignore, this fact.
          One should try to use it only when necessary to protect my Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

      14. thanks for the voice3 of reason, him….i like reading opinions that are thought out.

        • You’re welcome.

      15. Hey Mac, can we get a different topic. This is overkill. No pun intended.


        • Reason to practice at the 50 and 100 yard targets, isn’t it?

      17. They set the stage with their divide and conquer stratagem they have used for thousands of years, and then the demonic psychopaths controlling the Police State hell on earth of damned and doomed New Babylon America just sit back laughing and marveling at their evil, as they have done for thousands of years with every other society and civilization they have destroyed, and the dumbed down delusional easily controlled humans do just as they have done for thousands of years….blame everything and all their problems on each other, or the other manufactured and perfectly engineered “tribes”, i.e. the modern day left vs right, con vs lib, and other insane engineered paradigms the toxic dump drunken bums of collapsing New Babylon America love to ignorantly place themselves in for their “groupthink” identity. It is always the same divide and conquer game plan, because these demonic psychopath entities are not creative, and they know the dumbed down coward humans will NEVER confront the TRUE evil controlling and causing all the death and destruction, because thousands of years have taught them humans are just lazy cowards, who have whored out their children in the past to this evil many, many, many times, and of course we know all the millions of Munchausen Syndrome infected parents are whoring out their children to this demonic evil right now in New Babylon America……as history once again repeats itself!!!!

      18. In an unrelated post isis just claimed responsiblity for the shooter and also bird droppings on cars of repubs in Washington DC. Just joking! I do feel very sorry that things in the US would come down to this point over somebody trying to make AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! Hopefully after some of the real crooks go to jail for their crimes and inciting riots things will be better

        • Watch the Left Blame Russia for hacking into, and brain washing the shooter.

      19. It’s Bernie’s fault! Actually because the DNC screwed Bernie out of the nomination its Hillary’s fault! They always shoot the wrong person….

      20. This shit is really getting out of control.


        • Yes, yes it is.
          Get ready for the “Wild Ride”.

      21. What’s the big deal. Typical day in DC metro area, just happen to be members of congress.

      22. Sobering moment for these politicians. Not just a game anymore.

      23. Prediction: Expect a Reichstag fire incident very soon. The Marxist left traitors can then blame this false flag on Trump, and demand prosecution/impeachment. And this event will be huge; mark my words. We’re dealing with pure evil here. And ‘any’ means to the end is justified.!

      24. The capitol police were there because the Whip was there. If he hadn’t showed up, the capitol police wouldn’t have been there. An ordinary congressman is not automatically provided protection. This could have been a much worse tragedy. Congressmen with bats against an assasin with a rifle.

      25. Al Franken is claiming DOJ Jeff Sessions had secret meetings with the shooter ….

      26. Is it true that Kathy Griffin has given up the bloody Trump stumphead and is now stomping around with a bloody wrapped leg?

      27. Why would a Socialist want to kill government people. Aren’t we living in a Socialist State. I don’t get it.

        __ this makes no sense

        __ did he express a reason for his actions

        __ I can’t believe this

        __ is this death by cop ?? Suicide maybe. Otherwise it is just more play acting psychological monkey business


        • I recognize Hodgkins Disease, he is that ex-CIA guy who was doing lectures exposing the CIA.
