Today's dramatic shooting attack on Congressmen during an early morning baseball practice appears to have been politically motivated.

According to RealClearNews reporter Rebecca Berg, "Rep. Jeff Duncan plans to give a statement to police regarding a conversation he had with the shooter before leaving practice early" and she notes that "The man was wearing running clothes, asked Duncan: "Are those Republicans or Democrats out there practicing?""

Fox confirms, quoting Rep. DeSantis according to whom, the "Man Asked Whether Republicans or Dems Were on Field Before Scalise Shooting"

She adds: "Amazing heroism: Rep. Brooks tells CNN one member of security detail was shot in leg, still helped tend to Scalise afterward"

Meanwhile, Rand Paul told MSNBC that "Scalise being at practice “saved everybody else’s life. W/o leadership person there would’ve been no security there.”

Once again the MSM seems to have all the damning information on the shooter suspiciously quick. A loner with mental issues, a possible conspiracy theorist, who was a Bernie Sanders supporter also sounds eerily similar to James Christian, the alleged Portland stabber.

The whole episode reeks of a government psy-op engendered as a multi-pronged attack to subliminally and directly push several narritives. First is the continued assult on alternative media by discrediting it's followers as deranged psychopaths capable of violent atrocities. We see time and again this same basic premise utilized by the deep state and it's MSM shills (recall recently the Comet Ping Pong Pizza gunman, the Ft. Lauderdale airport shooter, as well as the Portland train attacker). Secondly is an attempt to demonize Bernie Sanders supporters and label them fringe leaning crazed conspiracy theorists. Considering the law suit by a bevy of Sanders' supporters against the DNC and Debbie Wasserman Shultz as well as everything Seth Rich (who appears to have been the source of the DNC emails turned over to WikiLeaks because of his support of Bernie coupled with his fury over the illegalalities that helped fraudulently propell HRC to the Democratic nomination) which both seem to scare the living shit out of a good number of senior Democratic party members, it is probably safe to assume they may being trying to run a campaign to discredit any of Sanders supporters in order to put the lawsuit and even Seth Rich in a more negitive light publicly. And lastly of course the deep state is once again pushing its gun control agenda down the throats of the dwendling few followers the MSM has left.
