What You Need To Know
On 16 occasions this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices regarding security matters. Most pressing for this report, on Wednesday morning AlertsUSA subscribers were informed of reports of the shooting of House Majority Whip Representative Steve Scaliseduring practice for a charitable sporting event. In this incident, a man opened fire on several Republican members of Congress, their staffers and a lobbyist who were practicing for the annual Congressional Baseball Game for Charity, scheduled for the following day. The incident took place at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria, Virginia, just across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C.
Prior to the attack, two other representatives were approached by a man who asked whether it was Republicans or Democrats on the field. One of the Representatives later told reporters that they believe that the man was the same individual police have identified as the assailant, James Thomas Hodgkinson.
During the practice session, Hodgkinson began firing from the vicinity of the third-base dugout. According to the Capitol Police, the shooter was armed with a 7.62 mm semi-automatic rifle and a 9 mm handgun. Representative Scalise, who is the third-ranking Republican in the House, was standing at second base when he was struck in the left hip by a rifle shot. Three Capitol Police who were present as Scalise’s security detail immediately began returning fire, ultimately being joined by local police before successfully bringing the gunman down.
In total, five individuals were injured in the attack, including Representative Scalis, Matt Mike, a lobbyist for Tyson Foods, congressional staffer Zack Barth, and two Capital Hill police officers, Crystal Griner and David Baily.
As of the preparation of this report late Friday, Representative Scalise remains in critical condition at MedStar Washington Hospital Center having already undergone three surgeries to repair extensive traumatic damage to his hip and internal organs.
While the shooter ultimately died of his injuries, unnamed sources have revealed to the media that the FBI recovered a handwritten list of Republican politician names in his pocket, suggesting this was a premeditated political assassination.
Considering the unending vitriolic anger and rage being expressed by the Left at President Trump’s election victory, to include near daily confrontations and attacks against any expression of conservatism on college campuses, regular protests at conservative events and around the clock anti-Trump hysteria with mainstream news outlets, AlertsUSA cautions readers to expect tensions to increase in the weeks and months ahead, which will likely result in increasing violence. If you are a conservative (typically the most targeted group), now is the time to get armed, acquire your concealed carry permit if you have not already done so, and get extra training on how and when to employ your weapon if the need arises.
It is unlikely the political discourse in this country will become any calmer, particularly with the approach of mid-term elections, and you will need the ability to defend yourself if the vitriol and rage of the Left put you or your family members in danger. It is unlikely this attack will result in a sudden bi-partisan gathering around the proverbial campfire with everyone holding hands and singing Kumbaya. The exact opposite is true, particularly as political losses mount and domestic policies are realigned.
ISIS Calls for More Ramadan Attacks
AlertsUSA subscribers were notified of the release of a new audio message issued by the Islamic State yet again calling on followers to launch attacks in the U.S. Europe, Russia, AUS and the Philippines during Ramadan.
“To the brethren of faith and belief in Europe, America, Russia, Australia, and others,” he said, “your brothers in your land have done well, so take them as role models and do as they have done.”
As AlertsUSA has repeatedly warned, we are now in the midst of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan which began Friday, May 26 and runs through to the evening of Saturday, June 24. Last year, Ramadan was particularly brutal and this year the number of attacks and those killed and injured are climbing fast.
Readers are urged to maintain a high level of vigilance and increased security awareness when out an about, and in particular, when present at large public gatherings and other soft targets.
AlertsUSA continues to monitor the overall domestic and international threat environment and will immediately notify service subscribers via SMS messages of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture for American citizens as events warrant.
