This is what Gerald Celente suggested would be happening soon, as well as the web bot reports - people acting alone, most likely with not much to lose, if anything, "losing it"...

I agree. Just think of how much more violent things will get when people are hungry:

There was a post on the Ron Paul blog that it was fake because the page was created today.  Can't confirm now that the page was taken down.

Thanks for highlighting that. I will do some more digging. 

In the meantime, here is a case against Loughner in AZ in 2008:

another story quotes the local sheriff as noting that "bigotry" has gotten out of hand, particularly in arizona.  perhaps her being jewish accounts for some of his feelings.  i don't know if it was part of the shooter's motive but it's a possibility.

This guy was political motive. Look at these videos.

Most likely this was ANOTHER Manchurian candidate-type assassination attempt.  The guy appears to be demented, if not outright nuts from those videos posted.

This will be used to crackdown on political criticism, and politicians will rarely speak to their constituents in public after this, IMO.

Its always better to control the public's perception by creating the incident (attack by  a 'crazy' on a politician) than waiting for the incident to happen, and doing damage control after the fact.

Check out our latest PsychoNews story: Signs of the Apocalypse

Its not that PsychoNews is opposed to looking at the bright side of the economy, its that certain issues must be addressed for real recovery to take place, companies have to be allowed to go bankrupt again (no more Too Big to Fail), mark-to-market accounting has to be brought back (for EVERYONE), US debt has to be defaulted on, manufacturing brought back to North America, (private) central banking outlawed...  Until those things happen every uptick in GDP or fantasy unemployment statistics is meaningless.  The issues of shadow housing inventory (held off the market by banks), unfunded liabilties, government deficits, currency debasement and structural unemployment continue to lurk.

As a bonus (to the Oligarchy), it looks like the Congresswoman was actually one of the more honest politicians, and not only that, the shooter raves like a lunatic about gold!  This is a dream come true for the elites, just like the 'mysterious' death of John Wheeler a week ago.

Exactly. Those were my first two thoughts: (1) Of course, they would shoot someone who doesn't even appear to deserve it; and (2) wait'll Fatherland Security gets rolling on this. Just another in a long chain of Reichstag fires.

Deserve?  In the words of William Munny, "Deserve's got nothing to do with it."  Just being an emperial functionary gives some nut-job ideas.

I fear you are spot on in point 2).

Things like this that the elites do not control, especially on their time line, are not welcome by the elite. Look for copycats. BTFD in Gold and Silver.

I find the death of Mr. Wheeler more interesting, indeed. Curiouser and curiouser. . .like the poison didn't get him so they had to do it the hard way. . . very strange. Damned surveillance tapes! Damned cell phones and computers!!

Thousands have it in them

Thousands are thinking of doing something like this

There only needs to be 1 who doesn't see the restrictions in it and has nothing to lose.


I personally don't approve the killing of another human being. Not even in war in which I feel the leaders should fight it out amongst themselves.


But anybody who does anything whatsoever must always think about the consequences.

And this is why, I always thought that anyday now a Bank CEO or CFO would get shot in the face which would have much more effect then killing a politician. A death politician is just a casualty of the policy that is set to destroy the people that got them in place.


She doesn't deserve all the attention in the media. A soldier that dies in a government war who fights for something for which he is told is the right thing to do deserve A LOT MORE ATTENTION then this woman who voted against the people and for her wallet.

Maybe this woman was told that what she votes is the right thing to vote.


Soldiers are grown up people who join the army by their own decisions. They have an option of turning down an order they do not agree with. Soldiers killed in action does not deserve more attention than this woman. They are the similar mould.

"They have an option of turning down an order they do not agree with."

An ILLEGAL order.  They are then arrested and court martialed.  The officer giving the order MAY have the option to shoot the soldier as well.  It can get very sticky.

"Soldiers killed in action does not deserve more attention than this woman. They are the similar mould."

FUCK YOU ASSHOLE.  You show the guts to walk into a war zone and face getting killed before you write somthing that fucking ignorant.

As you reminded it, war zones are dangerous places. Keeping the course does not  go easily anywhere. Going on a warzone does not make it easier.

Warzones reveal people and some people can grow displeased with what they discover about themselves and some others. People often like to depict themselves as they are not. War zones and more generally war times are pitiless to them.

During war times, you are generally left alone, confronted with what you are, as you are to deal with situations requiring to put your life on line. You can find comfort in extreme group life, offered by the military, while merging with the group and renegating on your individuality. All of this resulting from decisions. 

Dont go on warzones if you can not cope with the decisions you might be led to take.

As much as you seem to dislike it, the option of turning down an order exists. Pushing up the possible consequences is simply side tracking. Choices always come with consequences. And on warzones, the consequences can be lethal.

A society like the US offers many other options than soldiering.

Are you saying to shoot all who voted for TARP under the Second Amendment?  Where's McCain?

Most of Congress voted for TARP -- Democrats and Republicans alike.


People have called for pitchforks, and I think most all of the politicos should be tarred & feathered and run out of DC at the end of a pitchfork, BUT . . . this is a bit much.


If we can't extend the civil right of a trial in front of a jury of peers to even the most despised among us, what does that say about us?

When money and power usurps democracy and the judiciary, violence of the masses will ultimately usurp money and power. This cylce has been repeating itself for centuries.

Kennedy was killed because he went against the banking cartel we call the FED. He wanted to end it. Sound familiar ?

Yes, and you can expect what happened to them to happen to us if we do the same...

Are we prepared to take the casualties?  I am not so sure about that.  We are not made of the "right stuff".  Those people grew up in war, knew war... we did not and do not.

Having a gun does not make you a soldier.

We've been at war for the last decade.

Everyone has the right stuff, given the right conditions.

Napoleon said that revolution is just 3 meals away.

I do not believe that an organized resistance would be effective, given the advancements in surveilance technology. 

It will be lone gunmen after loan gunmen that would be able to hit and run.

Remember how long the DC shooter were able to continue before they finally got caught?

I don't defend violence, and myself I wouldn't be able to morally kill a woman in cold blood. But voting for TARP means being a corrupt bastard. Some people have nothing to lose, the shooter was one of them.
