"The President has been briefed several times about the unfolding situation at the Washington Navy Yard by Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Lisa Monaco and Deputy Chief of Staff Alyssa Mastromanaco.

Wait. They probably just stuck notes in the door jamb.

Listen to the authorities.

Sounds a bit dictatorial. Guess they’re preparing us for the coup.

It is serious....from one of the reports I saw here, it is one of Holder’s people, maybe Obama’s son or brother in law, or uncle or whatever.....they were expecting some crazy right wing white honkey.

Not yet...maybe too busy scouring the internet to find another obscure youtube video insulting Muhammed that they can blame it on.

Prayers up for the victims and good guys.

The wording of the WH message though hints of a false flag or black swan event (tin foil hat firmly attached).

Well, he was a kid at one time.

Age is objective. Or is that subjective. Whatever.

The point is, if he turns out to be a right-wing wacko, this will be the result of years of hate and listening to Rush Limbaugh. Anything else and he's a misunderstood youth who has been kept down by the man and is just trying to express his displeasure with life in America.

“People who were inside the building said the gunman — described as a tall, African-American male — wordlessly sprayed fire from an AR-15 assault rifle.”

Since we’re all so STOOOOPID out here our first reaction is to blow off directions from a bunch of police currently engaged in searching for an armed maniac on our block.

I hear ya....only it’s a little bit more difficult to pin the right wing on him iff’n he’s Holder’s People....

My guess is he’s an employee with a beef about getting RIF’d or something.

Couldn't help but chuckle at that Mr. Obvious statement.

Media will do anything, say anything to make Obama look presidential.

If U.S. Persons listened to the authorities after the Boston marathon bombing, the Tsarnaev brothers would still be on the loose.

It was a citizen who defied orders and went outside to smoke a cigarette who discovered one of the sh-theads hiding place.

"Listen to the authorities."

Yes, some citizens did not understand that they would be threatened with being shot by the police just for looking out of their window at the Nazi-like Boston police recently.

And another report says there are 3 shooters.

I really don’t put much faith in initial reports. They are usually wrong.

Of course, these days, I’m not sure any media outlet ever tells us the whole story about anything. Plenty of omissions, lies and half truths.

From the descriptions coming out about the suspected shooter, there’s a 95% chance he did NOT support Romney.

I am so touched that our President is on top of this and always looking out for me. I mean, with his handling of Benghazi and all.. Sniff sniff.. How long before the mighty Oz speaks and fails to attribute this to Muslims? Always protecting his brothers, he is. Four dead Americans in Benghazi because of that.

“Police now believe two shooters, including one in fatigues, have killed four people and wounded eight others at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday, throwing the region into fear and chaos during the morning commute.

Two Navy yard employees interviewed on CNN said they were fired on in a hallway by a gunman they described as a tall black man.

A woman who gave her name as Terry Durham said that as she and co-workers were evacuating, she saw a man down the hall raise a rifle and fire toward them, hitting a wall. “He was tall. He appeared to be dark-skinned,” she said.

“He was a tall black guy,” said her co-worker, Todd Brundage, who is black. “He didn’t say a word.”

The fake president was debriefed all night by Reggie Love, and then briefed this morning by Lisa and Allysa (real names in the article).

To this Hussein replied “Ew! I hate girl germs!”.

Hussein will make sure no one in the media dares to call this a terrorist attack. I am shocked (shocked I say !) that some on TV have dared say a shooter was black.
