The ball-field shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, that rained bullets on various Republican politicos may well have been a real assassination attempt. Generally, staged-deception events involve crisis actors playing obscure victims. But this shooting involves high profile House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), who was critically injured. Congressman Scalise by all accounts is an effective legislator and not somebody you want around if your goal is a government crippled by stalemates.
Let’s look at Scalise. Beyond being a high ranking GOP congressman, he’s a leading advocate of new legislation and investigations on human and sex trafficking. In the following video, he is in his office speaking on the issue and calling for passage of his legislation. Incidentally, Northern Virgina, where the shooting occurred, is a leading hub for missing children, as we previously reported. Coincidence? Even if Scalise survives his injuries, he’s going to be out of commission for a while and in recovery, thus not available to push through legislation or follow up on investigations.
Also raising eye brows to anyone familiar with Pizzagate [see] (aka Pedogate), is a report that Scalise’s office staff received pizzas from House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer’s (D-Md.) following the news that the GOP leader was gunned down at baseball practice by “Bernie Sanders supporter” James Hodgkinson. At minimum, this was in poor taste — maybe worse.
What’s the narrative on Scalise’s shooter, James Hodgkinson?
Looking at 66-year-old Hodgkinson’s political views, it appears he was hardly radical but rather standard progressive. In particular, he seemed fired up about the massive — and arguably extreme and toxic — income and wealth discrepancy in the U.S., which he compared to the 1920s lead up to the Great Depression. In reading through his views, he is speaking as an informed, reasonably intelligent progressive, not a nut, not an antifa. His profile has a different feel to me than the standard caricatures used in staged deceptions. His narrative is like one would expect involving a real person — at least up to a point.
But then the narrative becomes disjointed and makes little sense. Faux media said Hodgkinson was hyper-partisan. But that’s not especially a hallmark of Bernie Sanders’ supporters; who, if anything, are more anti-partisan. Deep dislike of Donald Trump is practically the norm for the majority of Americans, even non-partisans. This part looks a bit scripted.
Then we learn that this 66-year-old Bernie Sanders supporter was radicalized by John Oliver, Rachel Maddow, “The Daily Show,” Bill Maher and Robert Reich. This man is my age and from my generation. I knew educated progressives of his kind and age. I was once married to one. The chances are zero that he would be influenced by the first four, who are nothing but crass entertainers/clowns reading not-so-funny sound bites. Robert Reich works, but the others are icons for Millennials and low-IQ types. So this looks totally scripted.
Was Hodgkinson a sheep-dipped patsy or subjected to a mind-control operation?
We learn that in March, Hodgkinson had left his wife and family in Illinois without fanfare and was living out of a white cargo van in the East Monroe Street area of Alexandria. His daughter, Tasha, said, “[His wife] Sue didn’t know what was going on or why.” When his wife emerged for an interview, she said Hodgkinson “went to DC to work on tax reform.” There is nothing in his activities over the last three months that he couldn’t do back home.
We learn from his friend of 30 years, Ray Page, that he was never violent or spoke of violence. Another friend, Dave Walsh, said “something unexplainable must have happened.” Separately, there is a domestic violence and mass shooting narrative developing around Hodgkinson. We wonder if this part is false.
The New Nationalist (TNN) is wary of cartoon-world actors in incidents; but to our eye, the wife and Mr Page, Mr. Walsh and others who knew him look genuine enough. Hodgkinson, therefore, is not a cutout in the strict sense of the term.
He was not working, according Tim Slater, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office. A source close to the Hodgkinson family told The Post that he moved to Alexandria without ever telling his wife, daughter or grandson why. He was seen frequenting the lobby of the YMCA on East Monroe Avenue for nearly three months and would chat there with the former Democratic mayor of Alexandria, but nobody else.
The New York Post adds insights from a Y member, Stephen Brennwald, who said, “He was living out of the gym bag. That, and he sat in the Y’s lobby for hours and hours.” Another Y member said he’d regularly see Hodgkinson at the gym — but never in workout gear. “He never worked out. He’d just sit there and stared at his laptop.”
And when he wasn’t on his laptop, he’d stare out the window — at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park, where the shooting occurred. “He had this kind of faraway stare.”
Yes, that faraway stare. I wonder if he heard voices? Timely indeed that TNN ran a voice from God, or voice to skull article just before this incident. This should be understood. The lone crazed-gunman narrative has been used in the past for political assassinations, and the public has been set up for its use now.
Hodgkinson in his conversation with former Alexandria mayor Euille asked about potential jobs in the area; but when opportunities came his way, he admitted he didn’t have a bachelor’s degree. Why would a 66-year-old guy without a bachelor’s degree go to Alexandria, one of the most expensive towns in the U.S. in the first place? He didn’t have a government career CV either. And, seriously, why would anybody care one way or another if a guy 66 even had a bachelor’s degree?
Now, I’m exactly the same age and came from the same region as Hodgkinson. Men our age just don’t have the testosterone and thus stamina to live in a cargo van in the summer heat and humidity of D.C. Nor do they have the male aggression to pull this off using their own free will. My level (untreated) is 210, which is about average for my age, according to the chart. Feeling lethargic and passive is an understatement, especially compared to my youth. I’m treated with Testim and now feel like a 48 year old, an enormous difference. But without it, no way would a 66 year have the warrior mentality and ability to do what JH did without a big push.
And Hodgkinson shows up in March, which is a miserable time of year. Yes, we might be inclined for a low-testosterone adventure away from home, but not to hang out in the lobby of the YMCA and a cargo van, and probably not for three months, I can assure you. If he intended harm and to commit suicide by cop, there is not one reason to stay in that place for three months to do it. A week would suffice.
One could argue he was broke and thus nearly homeless. But a guy who by all accounts was a working class, blue collar worker collects Social Security at age 66. That’s decent enough income to keep one out of a cargo van in hot, expensive Alexandria, Virginia. Besides, there are other locales (Midwesterners love Colorado) where he could stretch his dollar and stay cool in the summer heat.
The whole script here stinks to high heaven and is incredulous. That doesn’t mean Hodgkinson didn’t gun down these politicos, but there would be other forces and methods involved to lure him into that spot and that suicidal outcome. Of course, the nothing-to-see-here, move-along crowd would never think of that; instead, just accepting that crazy Hodgkinson went to Alexandria to stare out of windows at the Y, sit in the heat in a cargo van and wait several months for a suicide-by-cop opportunity.
And what a useful sheep-dipped patsy to utilize in assassinating the leading legislator on human trafficking and pedo crimes. Yes, what a coincidence indeed. And just blame it on a Bernie supporter. Dead men can’t talk. How convenient once again.
TNN takeaway: Just doesn’t feel like a staged deception. If it was, then we are fooled, too. Bravo, Crime Syndicate, on this one if so. But we suggest this may be a new rollout of an old strategy: real political assassinations utilizing sheep-dipped, mind-controlled patsies. It was also a specific targeted assassination attempt against Scalise. Even if Scalise survives, the attempt served its purpose, by putting the Congressman out of the scene for some time. The others shot were for decoying and misdirection.
