"Corporations have been enthroned .... An era of corruption in high places will follow and the money power will endeavor to prolong its reign by working on the prejudices of the people... until wealth is aggregated in a few hands ... and the Republic is destroyed." -- Abraham Lincoln, American president, 1861-1865

Social media users took to X on Saturday after former President Trump survived an assassination attempt at an outdoor rally in rural Pennsylvania. The consensus is that this was the result of a massive Secret Service failure. Some, such as Sean Davis from The Federalist, are reporting that the Biden administration has been hamstringing Trump’s Secret Service detail by not giving it the resources necessary to keep the former president safe. Others are positing that something far more malevolent is going on. Here’s a roundup of the reporting and speculation on the incident that shook the nation.

Sean Davis:

BREAKING: A source familiar with Trump’s security detail tells @FDRLST that the former and future president’s detail has been asking for beefed up protection and resources for weeks, but has been rebuffed time and again by Biden’s DHS.

DHS, which oversees Secret Service protective detail “wasn’t responsive to those requests” for more resources, the source said.

Was Biden’s regime behind the attack, or did it deliberately do everything it could to allow it to happen?

A House Republican lawmaker is alleging that Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas denied stronger Secret Service protection for former President Trump multiple times.

Rep. Mike Waltz, R-Fla., made the accusation hours after Trump was grazed by a bullet at his Saturday Pennsylvania rally.

"I have very reliable sources telling me there have been repeated requests for stronger secret service protection for President Trump. Denied by Secretary Mayorkas," Waltz wrote on X.

The House Homeland Security Committee is planning on investigating reports that Trump was denied stronger Secret Service protection before the rally, a source told Fox News Digital.

Like the German army in the summer of 1918, the Democrats are in rabid disarray.  On paper, they still command impressive force.  They continue to jail their political  opponents and shower Donald Trump with potentially lethal legal shrapnel. [UPDATE: I wrote this column  before the assassination attempt on Donald  Trump at his rally in Pennsylvania yesterday.  I will have more to say about that in due course.]

But though their guns may continue their periodic eructations, morale among the troops teeters on despair. Their leaders are panicking.

Robert Fico, the Slovak Prime Minister who was seriously injured in an attempted assassination shooting in May, has said the Trump attack was a “carbon copy” scenario and blamed hostile media and Trump’s political opponents for creating an atmosphere of hate.

The populist prime minister of Slovakia, who only recently re-emerged into the public eye after he was shot multiple times in the abdomen by an activist and government critic, said the attempt on President Trump’s life was like a “carbon copy” in a statement on Sunday morning.

Writing about how a hostile media environment creates “the urge” in some to “sort things out” with violence and implying things had happened in the United States on Saturday as they already had in Slovakia months ago as if “through carbon copy [paper]“, Mr Fico stated his opinion that creating an assassination attempt had been part of the plan of Trump’s enemies.

Since this information was casually dropped overnight, several people on the Left have seized on the fact that Crooks' party affiliation is listed as Republican. Awww yes, this gives Democrats such relief because they certainly don't want to admit that feeding their supporters a nonstop buffet of hate, fear, and paranoia MIGHT set some not-so-mentally-well person off in a horrible way.

EXCEPT, his affiliation likely means bupkis. 

Sounds like Crooks donated a good bit of money to ActBlue:

After the assassination attempt on Trump, many of his supporters have taken to social media to suggest that this wasn’t the action of a “lone madman”, but an operation orchestrated by the American “deep state”, pointing to stories of people reporting the presence of the shooter on the roof but being ignored by the police, or asking why the police sniper waited for the shooter to fire before taking him out. This was easily predictable, and in the following days and weeks we can expect these theories to spread like wildfire.

More surprisingly, however, shortly after the shooting, the words “Staged” started trending in the US as well — a reference to the belief, apparently widespread in hardcore Dem/anti-Trump quarters, that the whole thing might have been staged by Trump himself to increase his popularity.

This might sound deranged, but it shouldn’t surprise us. This is the poisoned fruit of the complete oligarchisation of Western countries, first and foremost the US. Most people have a rational or subconscious understanding that elections are a sham and that there are unseen forces actually pulling the strings behind the scenes — forces that will stop at nothing to have their way, including murder; they just disagree about who or what those forces are.

President Joe Biden's halting and shaky showing at the debate has turned into a week as he was taken to task by a group of center-left House Democrats during a call late Saturday afternoon that was intended to be a softball outreach effort with centrist members of the party.

Sources describe the meeting, which was meant as an opportunity to assuage fears of Biden's fitness for office and temper party defections, as everything from "tense" to "awful."

According to a post on X from Politico's Rachael Bade, Rep. Jason Crow, D-Colo, was yelled at after asking about floundering public confidence in the commander in chief's leadership.

Biden challenged Crow to "name me a foreign leader who thinks I'm not the most effective leader ... Tell me who the hell that is. I don't want to hear this crap," he allegedly said, according to Axios.

Biden-appointed Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle's focus on DEI could have caused our former President Donald Trump to DIE in an assassination on Saturday. 

Trump likely would have been killed if the assassin's bullet was just an inch or two closer to his brain.

Things do not add up, however, as video footage from the rally clearly shows what looks like two Secret Service agents standing watch on the Rooftop directly adjacent to where the shooter allegedly fired from.

The live video feed, broadcast by RSBN, shows Trump being introduced at the rally at 6:04 PM EST. Two agents can be clearly seen standing on the rooftop behind him on the same side he was shot. Furthermore, their rooftop was higher elevation than the shooter’s. How did they miss him?

Democrats want Trump dead.

Just three months ago House Democrats moved to strip President Trump of his Secret Service protection if he is convicted.

Democrat Rep. Bennie Thompson introduced a resolution that would terminate Trump’s Secret Service protection. The legislation dubbed the “Denying Infinite Security and Government Resources Allocated toward Convicted and Extremely Dishonorable (DISGRACED) Former Protectees Act would apply to all Secret Service protectees convicted and sentenced under felony charges.

“The DISGRACED Former Protectees Act would terminate Secret Service protection for individuals who otherwise qualify for it upon sentencing following conviction for a Federal or State felony,” the announcement said.

Webmaster addition: It would appear that the assassination has been planned for months.

Driving Vice President-elect Kamala Harris by an undetected bomb. Refusing extra resources for a presidential candidate. Admitting an agent on a White House detail assaulted her supervisor. 

Long before the attempted assassination of former President Donald Trump Saturday night focused a harsh light on the Secret Service, the presidential security agency was already facing difficult questions about its capability, training, recruitment and emphasis on diversity.

Secret Service agents reportedly were circulating a petition raising questions about their management a few weeks ago.

Those questions are now certain to receive intense new attention after video footage showed a gunman was able to scale a building less than 200 yards from Trump, get to a shooting perch with a rifle and fire several rounds before being neutralized by a Secret Service sniper team at the event Saturday night in Butler, Pennsylvania.

Jimmy Dore: "There used to be 50 giant media companies, so there used to be more truth that could get out. But now because of Bill Clinton and the Telecommunications act in 1996 we went from 50 giant media companies down to 6, meaning that every TV show, every newspaper, every magazine, every radio show, it all comes from one of the 6 companies and that's why journalism sucks so much right now. Journalist used to come from blue collar backgrounds like me, but now they know they all have to work for one of the six billionaire owned companies and so the billionaires hand picked those people from Ivy League schools now and they're all going to be class loyal...

Despite corporate messaging, economic indicators point to an economy in shambles. What’s the truth about our current economic climate? If you have that strange feeling like the full story about the U.S. economy isn’t being told, you’re not the only one. You might even be feeling like things are much worse than the Administration keeps touting through the corporate media. In fact, in this piece we’re going to explore several examples that illustrate just how the American public is being sold one version of the economic story, while being left in the dark about the rest of the story.

A febrile nation was pitched into new turmoil on Saturday.

The cause was an apparent assassination attempt against former President Trump.

The scene, at a rally in Butler, Pa., echoed around the world in an instant. It will be replayed for days, weeks and years to come. 

The images came in chaotic succession. First the sound of shots and Trump bundled to the ground by protective agents. Then, the former president rising with a clenched fist and blood around his right ear. Trump walked — apparently under his own power but with the knot of agents still tight around him — to waiting vehicles and was ferried away. 

The difference of just an inch or two might have protected Trump from a far worse tragedy.

Former President Donald Trump was apparently shot at a Pennsylvania rally Saturday, and some on the left took the occasion to spread conspiracy theories that the shooting was a hoax.

Trump was speaking at a lectern in front of his supporters in Butler, Pennsylvania, when shots rang out. He grabbed at his ear before being engulfed by members of the Secret Service. The former president then stood up and raised his fist to the crowd. Blood was clearly dripping from his ear.

'All orchestrated by Trump.'

While many offered thoughts and prayers for the president, others in social media posts claimed that the shooting was a hoax.

A defiant President Joe Biden insisted to his donors on Monday that he is “done talking about the debate” and implored the party to ignore any further distractions and direct its attention back to Donald Trump.

“We need to move forward. Look, we have roughly 40 days til the convention, 120 days til the election. We can’t waste any more time being distracted,” Biden said in a private call with donors Monday, according to a recording obtained by POLITICO.

“I have one job, and that’s to beat Donald Trump. I’m absolutely certain I’m the best person to be able to do that. So, we’re done talking about the debate, it’s time to put Trump in a bullseye,” Biden said.

The controversial tech magnate has increasingly used the X social media platform to promote conservative views.

Tesla and X social media platform CEO Elon Musk endorsed Donald Trump’s bid for reelection, taking the opportunity to also criticize the former president’s Secret Service detail after an apparent assassination attempt at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania.

“I fully endorse President Trump and hope for his rapid recovery,” the tech magnate said Saturday, posting a video of the politician defiantly pumping his fist into the air before being helped off stage by security. Trump suffered a minor injury after a bullet appeared to graze the right side of his face and hit his ear.

The attempted assassination of Donald Trump may lead to further clashes between the Dems and the GOP, ex-US Army psychological warfare officer and State Department counterterrorism analyst Scott Bennett told Sputnik, raising suspicions about the Secret Service's conduct.

Former President Donald Trump was injured in a shooting at a Pennsylvania rally on July 13 just days before accepting the Republican nomination.

"The Secret Service were remarkably — if not suspiciously — slow in their protecting of the [former] President [Trump], similar to how they were slow in protecting President John F Kennedy when he was shot in Texas," former US Army psychological warfare officer and State Department counterterrorism analyst Scott Bennett told Sputnik.

Ronald Reagan was the last president to be shot in an assassination attempt before Donald Trump was hit at a rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday.

When leaving the Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C. on March 30, 1981, Reagan was shot at several times and wounded when one bullet ricocheted off a vehicle and struck him under the left armpit.

Then-President Reagan spent 12 days at George Washington University Hospital before returning to the White House.

Trump, while not currently the U.S. president, is the first to be shot in an assassination attempt since that day in 1981.

Republicans in Congress have launched an investigation into the 'security failures' that led to a horrific assassination attempt on former President Donald Trump.

Lawmakers say a frightening lapse meant that a gunman was able to get so close to Trump and unleash a barrage of bullets that hit his ear and killed a member of the rally crowd.

The suspect opened fire on the former president from a roof 130 yards away from the stage where he was speaking to thousands of MAGA fans in Butler, Pennsylvania, on Saturday night.

Former Navy SEAL Rep. Ryank Zinke, R-Mont., who has experience in setting perimeters in combat zones, said the shooter being able to access a 'nearby roof' to take aim at Trump was an 'absolute failure of security.'

Donald Trump pumped his fist in the air with blood streaming across his face seconds after being shot in the ear by a gunman in stunning images seen across the world

The former president, 78, survived the horrifying assassination attempt when the bullet missed him by less than an inch on Saturday afternoon, at a rally in Butler, Pennsylvania

It came eight minutes after he took the stage at 6:03pm ET, where Trump began his remarks and pointed to a large graphic in the same direction where the shooter was perched atop an AGR International building. 

At the same moment, Trump supporters said they spotted the gunman - named as Thomas Matthew Crooks, 20 - 'bear-crawling' across the roof with a rifle, but claimed their warnings to Secret Service were ignored.

Bump to the top.

 

Webmaster addition: UPDATE: There seems to be confusion who the shooter was. This article names Mark Violets as the shooter!

UPDATE2: A close up photo of the dead shooter has been posted to social media. I am not going to post it here due to its graphic nature, but it looks more like Mark than Thomas.
