It just happened folks.
The FBI has apparently declared that the Scalise shooting (at the baseball park) was spontaneous and not premeditated.
This, despite the fact that they found multiple pictures of the ball field in his possession.
They have also declared that he had no particular target in mind.
This, despite the fact that he had a list of Congresspeople on him at the time he committed the offense.
They have further declared that they have no particular motive either.
This, despite the reported fact that he asked one of the people there whether it was Republicans or Democrats practicing, and only after hearing it was Republicans did he go retrieve his guns and start shooting.
Oh, and this “random”, “no known motive” nutbag (at least the last word is accurate) traveled the better part of 1,000 miles in a van from Illinois to Washington DC, rented a storage locker in which he deposited a nice big cache of rounds for his weapons, and then did all of the above.
This is the same FBI, I remind you, that had a Director (since fired) who went on national television and laid out every element of a criminal statute being violated by one Hillary Clinton and then proclaimed that “no reasonable prosecutor would bring the case.”
I’m not sure if it was the Hillary thing, or even the 9/11 thing where the ragheads who would go on to blow up 3,000 Americans were called in by an astute citizen who thought it was damn odd they were paying in cash for simulator time and didn’t want to know how to land. After all, we were told, 9/11 was a “complex plot” with “lots of moving parts”, especially the ones that were allowed to keep moving and leave the country for their native (guess which one) nation after it happened by one President Bush.
But this, well, it’s just a bit beyond belief, you see.
You have a guy who drives halfway across the nation, rents a storage locker, searches on the Internet for where a 2017 GOP convention might be held, takes pictures of the very ball field where he commits his assault, has a list containing the names of six members of Congress on his person and then to put a cherry on top of all of it directly inquires of a passerby whether it’s actually Republicans on that field before he starts shooting — and is told “yes.”
This, my friends, is all consistent with a random, no-notice and no-motive shooting “incident” — not a plotted, and carried out, act of terrorism against Republicans by someone who in fact belonged to a Facebook group called “Terminate Republicans“.
