    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) told radio station WTOP on Wednesday that authorities believe the man suspected of gunning down two television journalists earlier in the morning is “a disgruntled employee.”

    “We believe the shooting suspect is a disgruntled employee,” McAuliffe said during a live radio interview.

    “They know the suspect, They’re pursuing the suspect,” McAuliffe told WTOP.

      Just horrifically heartbreaking.

          I hate people, too. And it’s somehow liberating to say that, after six decades of trying to like ’em, in my case!

          • August 26, 2015 at 11:52 am

            I feel bad for saying it but some days I am overwhelmed by the abject cruelty coming at us from so many places. So, yes, it’s liberating to just let it out. UGH.

    There are so many millions of weapons out there right now, I’m starting to feel like it’s too late to do anything.

      Will have to be done a state at a time meta. No-one in the federal sphere would have the political power to get rid of the guns. It could happen state by state – if the NRA can be removed.

    There is footage of Jorge Ramos on Facebook out in the hall waiting to go back into the press conference. What he is confronted with is incredible.

    He is told to “get the $!!## out of my country” by some clown out there with him. Unbelievable!

    For those who cannot access FB I was trying to find the video on Youtube but no luck as of yet.

    He’s always been a bigot. He’s such a jerk.


    The tweet re-posted a meme that reads: “It’s said only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How’d that go?”

    The text was superimposed of a red-tinted photo of Adolf Hitler.

    BTW, I will boycott Mariano’s grocery stores because they are allowing guns in IL stores. Their statement was so disingenuous: they are just following IL law. Well, IL law also says you can be refuse to have guns in your place of business. Even effing Whole Foods bans guns in their stores.

    I don’t shop there much anymore, but I’m making it clear that I will never set foot in one of their stores again.

    smh/but I should not be surprised…

    Many people in the media establishment have responded by attacking Ramos for not showing appropriate respect for Trump.

    On MSNBC, Joe Scarborough said that Ramos — who has been a dominant figure in the media for decades — was “looking for his 15 minutes of fame” and “staged” the altercation with Trump’s body guards.

    In the Washington Post, Ramos was belittled as a “conflict junkie.”

    On CNN, Chris Cuomo told Ramos: “It’s his press conference. He runs the rules. You jumped the queue.” Ramos noted that in virtually every press conference reporters ask questions without being called on.

      Then remember how these same folks…..including Chris Coumo reacted when Pres Obama Only said to Major Garrett that he should know better on the last presser POTUS held where and when Major G. was accusing POTUS of ignoring US Citizens currently detained in Iran……for they were not part of the #IranDeal.
      JoScar, MSN, Fox, GOPers, etc all were accusing the President of Silencing Reporters, Being Thin-Skinned, etc, etc.
      Remember how the WHPC would always chide the Obama Team on access, Pete’s Photo, the Denial of Air Time by the Corporate MSM at least on 2 occasions for a Presidential address to the Nation. These same people cheered Bill O’Rielly, Chuck Todd, Jorge Ramos, etc for their rude, crude and insulting behaviors while interviewing Pres Obama.
      Now the same MSM are defending MKelly and are throwing JRamos under the bridge? Hmm?

      Hypocrisy. Lame. Lazy. Corrupt. The US News Media are reaping what they have been sowing for 7 plus years now.

        Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
        He planned this and there will be some in the News Media telling us how mentally demented he is.
        The need nowadays for some to be seen, get notoriety and commit heinous acts is getting out of hand.

    • August 26, 2015 at 11:28 am

      I’m not going to look but he took video of himself while he was shooting? This selfie BS has gone insane.

        Meta, I followed the link on my timeline and he posted all this stuff about someone going to HR on him and that one of those two had made racist remarks about him and I’m thinking this must be fake. Then he says that he has posted the murder on Facebook. Then up pops video of him standing not 10 feet from them with the gun and him shooting them. I wish I could un-see what I saw.

        • August 26, 2015 at 11:40 am

          Oh, no, Donna. I’m sorry you saw it. Some things are just too horrific to process. I still have horrid memories of people posting awful images of children in war.

    Glen Thrush at Politico just ran the most disgusting and despicable hit piece on VP Biden imaginable, obviously full of lies. Gosh, I wonder who was behind that? Same playbook, different day.

      Good morning meta. Yesterday I saw a story (didn’t click) that stated that Hunter Biden had an account on that Ashley site. But the site was created using an old credit card and it had the wrong birthday for Hunter.

      The smear is beginning.
