Well, now we go from shutdown to lockdown ... You just knew this was coming - somebody was bound to crack. I am surprised it did not happen much sooner. I have the sense that this is only the beginning. Unfortunately, the only thing that will come from this is more calls for gun control and eventual confiscation. Like the little twerp, Mr. “Dead fish,” said - Never let a good crisis go to waste.” I am sure they will play this “crisis” for every last dime they can ring out of it.
When your rhetoric includes “jihad”, “terrorists” and “extreme factions with bombs attached”, you create this kind of environment, Senators.
I’m waiting for the first photoshop of him peering up from behind his desk, below the windows, with his bicycle helmut on.
Well it is a Government Shut down.
Perhaps Barrack’s luv child?
It’s uncanny isn’t it?
Peter King beat Schumer this time.
Anyone want to guess on how long it will take to declare martial law?
It is NOT clear at all if the woman had a gun or ever fired a gun.
Hearing reports that she did NOT have a gun, but not confirmed.
“I am going with cops gone wild.”
Yep. Expect better handling of these things by the Secret Service.
[i] Lebanon 78 comes to mind. [/i]
Actually, it was1983 when the marine barracks were hit by a suicide bomber in Beruit
Bret saying it is NOT clear that she had a gun..
This may be why the press conf is late.
Not possible. Rumor is that his kids are rented.
If the woman was unarmed, then it sounds like she was assassinated by over-zealous law enforcement. It sounds fishy that a woman would take a child along with her in a terrorist attack. They will have to find a gun to plant on her.
“...Even worse, she may have been driving an SUV...”
And of course it’s a - Ready? - A Glock Assault SUV with high-capacity gas tank...who’s ONLY purpose is to spew carbon DIoxide (used to monoxide was the boogeyman but we know better now...) for the EXPRESS purpose of melting the polar ice caps and stranding cute, fuzzy, 1200 pound Polar Bears on shrinking ice floes...
Yup... I get that....
ABC news update .. Woman had tried to ram wh balustrades, motorcycle police chased her. Ended in shooting near treasury building, a child was in the car and has been removed. No weapon was found in car.
Sorry everyone. My post 28 referred to a separate incident an hour or two prior to the current one. My mistake.
Personally I think it’s some fat, overweight DC union cop, who accidentally shot himself while reaching for his 2nd jelly donut! The media & demoRATs will play it up as if there was some sort of attack. I don’t trust a single thing coming from our gubmint any longer, especially with 0dumb0sh_t heading up the rogue regime.
Or is it yet another AR on the rampage?
Thanks for update. I am behind the reports. If this was a real threat, why would they lift the shelter in place? They would have no way of knowing whether this was a larger attack at this point. Brier making point that some reports are that she was UNARMED!! Possible pit maneuver which made her hit fence.
Thanks to the media and DC politics, the whole story is hopelessly screwed up....lol.
Best comment of the day!
Story first, facts later.
Ah, yes, thank you.
Let the propaganda spew from Pravda on the Potomac commence.
This is a useless press conf
News conference........not sure if baby was in car. This is starting to stink.
Now they will not confirm whether child was in car! ??? Hope the stupid cops did not kill the poor child!!
Harry must have told her that the shutdown was going to delay her welfare check - she just couldn’t take it any more ...
First, her free Obamaphone died ...
Then her government-supplied taxi service stopped running ...
Then her government-funded day-care closed its doors ...
Finally, Harry Reid told her - on national T.V. - that he did not give a DemoRat’s tail if her cancer-ridden child died ...
That was it - she snapped!
And it’s all the Republican’s fault! /s
How many did the police hit in the battle?
My vain message to Obama—
You will NOT kill the American spirit. You don’t understand it because you don’t posses it. You pit neighbor against neighbor, and divide our society along lines of race and income and political affiliation. We see what you are doing and despite what your inner circle worshippers tell you,,,you are NOT succeeding. None of us will be surprised when you turn your tanks and law enforcement against your own people, like the Communist Chinese at Tianneman Square. You are pushing people to the brink on purpose. You are evil and you WILL be defeated.
If you combine this post with my previous posts....
As I understand it from CNN, they had a bead on the woman from the incident near the WH and followed her. When police shot her (presumably dead), child was discovered—— lockdown ban was immediately lifted.
This may turn out to be a OH SH-T moment for the police. Their defense will be, as CNN sees it, that once she had the altercation and sped away at high speed, “use of of force was authorized,” and presumably (big presume) justified.
The posts I have posted have been per CNN.
Now some are saying that cop cruiser may have hit the barricades.
Sticking to original wild speculation...Cops Gone wild!
So the Sgt of Arms dosn;t know IF the womn was armed,IF she’s been shot or IF she’s dead.
I heard she had a leased car. I hope she got the extended collision coverage, it really can be a good deal. For about $2 a month, you get $5000 worth of collision coverage, and believe you me, collision repair can be very expensive in the DC area ...
Guns are illegal in DC.
“So the Sgt of Arms dosn;t know IF the womn was armed,IF shes been shot or IF shes dead.”
Close enough for government work, right?
Seriously, this is an 0bamascare phone number.
I just read on another site that the shooter was a woman with a baby in her car. Can anybody at FR help verify this, or is it all just chaos at this point?
Rammed WH gates were three blocks away from actual WH.
Everything I’m reading makes it appear her car was her weapon. Doesn’t seem she fired any shots.
