The shooting took place at the offices of the Family Research Council, which is located at 801 G Street, about a block west of the Verizon Center.
A source tells ABC7′s Scott Thuman that the suspect is Floyd Corkin, 28, of Virginia.
FRC Shooter, Floyd Corkin
Sources say Corkin walked into the Family Research Council and said “It’s not about you, it’s about the policy,” and then shot the guard.
The guard, who was shot in the shoulder, was conscious and breathing after the incident.
The suspect was taken into custody by the FBI and was being interviewed. Authorities later found his vehicle at the East Falls Church Metro station.
When, oh, when, will the lamestream media begin to do their jobs? Will we see this story on the NBC Nightly News or World News Tonight? We shall see. Oh, and did you hear? Authorities found Chick-fil-A paraphernalia in the suspect’s car. Gee, wonder what those implications are? /sarc
Tonight on Greta, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli & South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster appeared to discuss their pending legislation/lawsuits, which they will file tomorrow. At question is the Democrat leadership’s interpretation that the individual mandate is constitutionally legal under the Commerce Clause.
VA and SC are just two of 14 states that are in the process of enacting these State laws. We must all hope and pray that these states win the day…if for no other reason than there has never before been a federal law that REQUIRED an individual citizen to purchase something merely to be a legal United States citizen. This is intrusive beyond all imagination, and I await the first cases to be filed and sent to the Supreme Court of the United States. There are plenty of conservative figureheads that are willing to be those test cases. I’m anxiously awaiting that moment in time.
I believe the Constitution will win the day, but with this current corrupt administration, we need all the help we can get.
First up, we have Joe Lieberman on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, fielding a question about the Healthcare Reform Act that passed the House last night. Does Joe like the public option? Not so much.
Next, on ABC’s “This Week,” George had both party leaders on, Tim Kaine and Michael Steele, to discuss various issues facing the country. Healthcare, the gubernatorial votes last Tuesday, the 2010 election, among a host of other things. Watch for the moment Kaine grabs Steele’s wrist, and Steele has to pull it off. This was the equivalent of verbal fisticuffs. I’m sure they like each other, but they are definitely at political war with each other.
Next, on the This Week roundtable this weekend, it was quite entertaining. The democrats would do well to listen to Dr. Luntz on his polling. Also note how Donna Brazile said the addition of denying federal funding for abortions to the healthcare bill that passed the house last night equates (to her) the straight-out “outlawing” of abortions. Excuse me? Since when did federal funding equate with downright outlawing of anything?
Members of Congress were quick to shame corporate executives for over-the-top extravagance during the economic crisis, flying private jets and taking luxury junkets. But some lawmakers are strolling fancy resorts spending tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars and mingling with lobbyists.
“We’re very mindful” of perceptions, House Democratic Caucus Chairman John Larson told reporters Thursday camped outside of the sprawling Kingsmill Resort & Spa in Williamsburg, Va., where House Democrats spent about $100,000 on their three-day annual retreat. “It’s serious and it’s from morning till night. We’ve been dwelling, rightfully, on the economy,” said Larson, D-Conn.
Yeah, dwelling over mojitos and jello shots? I’ll tell you what’s “serious” and going on from “morning till night.” That would be the open bar tabs.
How many homeless people were invited? How many “victims” of foreclosure were invited? Okay, I give up. I’m probably pissing into the wind with those questions. Can you say “hypocrisy?”
