Congressional Baseball Shooter Dies At Hospital

Bernie Sanders Campaign Team member ‘targeting Republicans’ shoots five including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise with a RIFLE at an early morning congressional baseball practice

Five people including the House Majority Whip Steve Scalise were shot at a GOP baseball practice on Wednesday morning.

Scalise was shot in the hip by the gunman who fired between 50 and 100 rounds from his rifle before being brought down by Capitol Police.

Florida Rep. Ron DeSantis said the shooter asked the group of they were Republican or Democrat before opening fire.

Two members of Scalise’s security detail were also shot and an unnamed congressional staffer was shot in the leg.

Breitbart has live coverage. (Shooter in custody?)

    House majority whip. Millions of suspects who could have ordered the hit.

          Heh, lol.

      At 1 pm Eastern, opening up the hour for CNN News, host Wolf Blitzer called the shootings “deliberate”. In other words, this was no accidental discharge of a weapon. I am not making this up.

        Can’t fool Wolf. He’s is a sharp one.

      Did she or the other beached whale Michael Moore publicly offer a reward yet for whoever gets Trump?

  • deplorabledave

    I hope the demoncrats and the media are happy with their work. This is the type of outcome they are fomenting.

  • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

    Yahoo story says the shooter was asking if there were Republicans or Democrats there before opening fire.

  • Brett_McS

    Early voting?

    I heard that they’re cheering at CNN and Chris Cuomo needs medical attention for a 4 hr erection.

      Don Lemmon and AC will be right on that.

      Show him a picture of Hillary nude that’ll look after the hard on.

      Rosie O’Donnell would get rid of it in a heartbeat.

    Says another coming in 1 hour to hour and a half.

  • The media has incited the easily manipulated to do their bidding.

    • Brett_McS

      I’m amazed that a serious assassination attempt on Trump hasn’t been made yet.

      • It will come.

        • Oracle9

          After all, the media and the arts world are lusting, baying and fantasizing about exactly that.

  • Texas Rep. Roger Williams was also shot at baseball practice in Virginia
    along with House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and aides, Fox News

  • Three words the media shall never utter: “Left wing extremist.”

    • Oracle9

      That appellation defines the Left, doesn’t it?

      • David Murrell

        The fact that the phrase will not be mentioned defines the left-wing media cartel.

  • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

    It’s Trump’s birthday today.

    Wonder if that’s part of it.

    • Maybe.

      • David Murrell

        CNN and the NYT will be investigating that.

  • Oracle9

    Congrats BCF! You broke the story before Google News and before CBC.

    i guess since the targets were conservatives, that kinda explains the lack of interest.

    • ontario john

      The CBC is too busy finding another reason for Canadians to apologize this Canada Day. They have a story on how if you were ever a bully to someone, you should apologize.

  • Bla Bla

    Time for a crackdown on the so called ‘media’ which is nothing more than a propaganda arm of the globalists and their useful idiot lapdogs (I’m looking at you antifa). They have started a civil war that the freedom loving people don’t want, but will finish if need be and someone needs to tell the globalists that the US is not Europe where people would quietly board railcars to their demise.

  • ontario john

    Expect at some point today, that CNN will blame Trump in some way.

    • Clausewitz

      That’s too easy. It’s like stating that water is wet.

  • robins111

    Anyone start a pool yet on who the MSM will blame, Gun Control, Trumps Rhetoric, Evil White men… I’m thinking Climate Change…

    Even if the retard was dressed up in black, has a bandanna over his face, with a bike lock in his pocket, they’ll blame the conservatives. .

  • tom_billesley

    The media take will be ….White man …blah, blah…..Rifle, gun control … blah,blah, with “Republican” slipping to second to last paragraph.

  • BillyHW

    Paul Ryan is safe because no one could credibly claim he is a Republican.

  • House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who was shot in the hip early Wednesday on a Virginia baseball diamond, is undergoing surgery at MedStar Washington Hospital.

    They’re saying he was conscious and in good spirits before surgery.

    • Jabberwokk

      Good. Depending on how the media react to this could determine if this escalates further toward war or towards reconciliation between the parties.

      • Clausewitz

        WWI started with the shooting of the Archduke of Austro-Hungary. Civil wars can start just as easily. Helter Skelter. Keep your powder dry my conservative American friends.

  • favill

    Interesting they described the shooter, but didn’t give his name. As we all know there are converts all over the place, like the guy who shot Cpl Cirillo in Ottawa. Perhaps, the shooter had changed his name to reflect his new-found beliefs.

  • glasnost

    Looks like the civil war, predicted by some, is actually starting.

    • Jabberwokk

      Not yet i don’t think. Still very possible.

  • Jabberwokk

    Shooter was James T. Hodgkinson and after looking at his Facebook page it seems he was an anti-trump Bernie supporter.

    • I just heard that on the radio, a co-worker on the Sanders campaign called him a “passionate progressive.”

      • Jabberwokk

        see below.

      • Clausewitz

        Passionate Progressive is Newspeak for raving lunatic commie humper.

    • Jabberwokk

      From his facebook “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”

      Linked was a petition at to impeach trump.

  • mauser 98
    • Observer

      … that is, a Democrat.

    • One of the Congressmen spoke to the shooter before the incident (name escapes me). Shooter: “Who are these people?” A: “Congressional baseball team”. Shooter: “Which Party — Democrat or Republican?” A: “Republican”. (Fox News — paraphrased).

      Shortly after he started shooting.

    • He worked on Bernie’s Campaign!

  • This is on Chuck Schumer and the Democrats. Schumer needs to come out with a clear and unequivocable statement consisting of the following:

    a) President Donald Trump is not in fact Hitler — he has no connection to Nazism.
    b) POTUS is not in fact a racist and member of the KKK and never has been.
    c) POTUS is not in fact a Russian spy and never has been.
    d) All of the above is the result of fake Media reports and does not represent the position of the Democrat Party. We do not support assassinating Republicans or the President and urge Democrats everywhere to refrain from future acts of violence against Republicans based on false Media reports.

    Responding to the CBC in Ottawa about this Democrat terrorist attack, Trudeau commented: “Allah Akbar”

  • President Trump announces gunman who opened fire at Virginia baseball practice is dead. -FoxNews

    Now the liberals can spin the facts without being contradicted.

  • Bernie Sanders “sickened” by Scalise shooting, reportedly conducted by former campaign volunteer

    • Frances

      And so he should be. Am somewhat skeptical of his sincerity, however.

    • And the recent treasonous NSA leaker — Reality Loser what’s ‘er name — also a Sanders supporter. Bernie Sanders in fact announced a couple days ago that Trump was the most “dangerous President” in American history. His followers actions are based on the lies Sanders is deliberately feeding them. Likewise the establishment Dems and their followers.

      • He is their inspiration.

      • UCSPanther

        It amazes me that these leftist idiots are quite willing to ruin their lives by engaging in political violence for a swarm of elite who clearly don’t even pretend to have their best interests at heart.

      • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

        Guy who jumped the fence to attack Trump was a Bernie bro as well.

        I’m pretty sure all the violent attacks by single people were Bernie’s supporters

        Antifa people generally say they never voted.

        • They seem to have forgotten that Hillary was the one who got caught rigging the Primaries (and we know this thanks to the “Russian” hack) — hence shutting down Bernie’s chances of winning in a fair contest. In fact the Bernie campaign has launched a class-action lawsuit against Hillary to try to recover all the donations his supporters sent for nothing. Yet they still blame Trump — it doesn’t matter who the actual perpetrator(s) are, Trump is to blame. Bernie is talking out of both sides of his mouth.

          • Maggat

            Of course, he’s a progressive socialist.

    Malcolm Harris is not and has not ever been associated with Vox. We’re actively working to get this corrected.

  • This is a progression of leftists’ innate violence.

    Sadly, one should expect more of this.

    • UCSPanther

      I have always said that the ANTIFA and those thuggish campus leftists are paving the way for a new Kent State ’70 with their actions.
