This JUST came up, it wasn’t here when I went to RT, then Reuters. Heard about this about an hour ago, but was too busy elsewhere to check it out then.
“A spokesperson from Del Sol hospital confirms they received a total of 11 victims…”
“Two of those patients are in stable condition and nine are listed in critical condition.”
“UPDATE: 12:30 p.m. KTSM can confirm that 18 people were shot inside the Walmart. The extent of their injuries is unknown at this time.”
“UPDATE: 1:06 p.m. – An officers on the scene tell KTSM that 18 people are dead at the scene.”
“Details are limited at this time.”
I am disinclined to believe this narrative.
If a police spokesperson said it, you know it is not true. Why would they convey truth, what’s in it for them? Fabricating a story is the bestest method for controlling it. If guns are mentioned, it is another propaganda gun-grabbing media blast!
Never ever leave home without your handgun , repeat after me never ever leave home without your hand gun . Have they said the skin color of the shooter yet ? I know if he are she was white we would know by now
Drudge headline says, “supsect circulated manifesto about “Hispanic invasion.”
WELL, THE “SUSPECT” HAS A VALID POINT……….
Agree KOYOTE. Here’s the link https://heavy.com/news/2019/08/patrick-crusius/
One of the witnesses say 4 shooters dressed in black.
Good find, Katie. I hope someone screen shots that part because that is a very specific description that sounds like it’s a mossad FF and not a hoax this time.
That was said on a clip on msmbc…they haven’t shown it since.
Screenshot and saved. I’d post for all here but can’t
Thank you, Bluewater, because I am sure that bit is going to get memory holed. I don’t know how/if I can save that invader woman’s video…
El Paso Walmart shooting witnesses saw ‘three to four armed men running in… dressed in all black… shooting’
And we can hear the Harken calls from The Sensible Gun control sycophants…
Well, you don’t get to violate my rights at any level because of what another person or others have done, are doing or will do..!!
So ur arguments become mute…!
Bill of Rights and Common law…
5 facts you need to know about the shooter. Just a side not here. In this facts sheet the police say there were thousands of people in the WalMart. Gee, is this possible? Anyway, in this article, his comment about the invasion into Texas is enclosed. Kinda interesting!
This event will be great for the democrat debates.
Oh, and you still can’t touch our law, being the Bill of Rights. Specifically the 2nd Article in this situation.
And here’s how mixed up it is. Trumptards in every camp. Here’s the fighting back:
IF THIS IS NOT A FALSE FLAG, THEN THAT WAS ONE PISSED OFF AMERICAN KID……….WHO HAS BEEN DOING HIS SHARE OF “PONDERIN’.
FFIMO….why wouldn’t he just head down to the border and pick them off ? More gun grabbing bs….lies! There was a event for a D-potus hopeful a couple blocks away???
Probably just found out his real parents were wetbacks.

Pic of alleged shooter in police car:
They say he was from Allen, TX and went to Plano High School which is right where I’ve work for the past 5 years. I’ve never met a Patrick Crusius before and I also find it funny how it happened near another Cinemark theater just like the one in Aurora, Colorado. Kinda makes you wonder now, doesn’t it.
Love how they roll out the same lines again: “Heard Multiple shooters” then turned to just “ONE shooter”. “Manifesto” and “assault weapon” and of course NO PICTURES OF BLOOD NOR ANY BODIES at the scene but the same witnesses come up to the reporters saying the same speech like paid actors.
And it happened at Walmart with the best surveillance cameras all over the parking lot and in store, yet ZERO FOOTAGE OF THE INCIDENT!!!!
Goodness people, COME ON! This is ridiculous.
I like extra butter on my popcorn. Medium salt.
His supposed manifesto, which I am only just beginning to read:
Holy you-know-what!! This is heavy, and I’m only 2 paragraphs in. Are there pro-rebuclican undertones? Hmmm…..
Anyhow, this manifesto seems very well-written for a 22 yr old, as did the previous so-called manifesto by the Poway Synagogue shooter, John Ernest, age 19. So very polished for such young minds, so cohesive and detailed.
Will continue reading.
(And this is a hell of a way to impact a weekend. Damn them!!!)
Many angles here. Not sure what to make of it all. Says,
“In the near future, America will have to initiate a basic universal income to prevent widespread poverty and civil unrest as people lose their jobs.”
Commie agenda, no?
Says immigration is to satisfy need for low-skilled labor pool. No mention of military need. No mention of jews.
And in the back of my head, that little voice, Is this a real patriot? Is this a Mossad psy-op? Did people really die? But most of all… How will they use this against us?
This “manifesto” does not sound like the rantings of someone who is about to go shoot up a bunch of people. It sounds more like a team of slick writers who are manipulating me here and then there. Of course, I could be wrong. Right now all I have are my own perceptions. Perhaps more will surface tomorrow, and even so, we are hard-pressed to trust any of it.
BINGO!!!!! And thank YOU for that accurate breakdown. This, 100%!
They are the polluters of peace, the annihilators of joy. I want some of Sunday for myself, where the demons ain’t wreaking havoc. I want fresh squeezed lemonade while sitting in my rocker on my porch watching a couple of ducks swimming on the pond.
They want to cut us off from a simple, beautiful life. They’ve done some damage, but they WON’T succeed.
The fight intensifies and Sunday still provides some solace.
Who knows, but…
There’s more to life than what the demons deliver. Rock on!!
Wow!! You know I have not seen a photo of the garlic shooter. If they actually look this much alike, crazy!
What’s going on here? This is nuts.
Katie, I know. And we haven’t even got to Ohio yet.

And you need not watch more than 20 seconds to get the flavor of such a treatment from its founder, Vianna Stibal:
As they say…’Never let a good crisis go to waste.’
“As soon as we know who the victims are, we will reach out to them,” he said. “As Jews, our job is to make the world a better place. We have to fight the fight even stronger.”
