Disgraced McCabe says FBI ‘never really uncovered’ motive behind congressional baseball shooting

Former Federal Bureau of Investigation Deputy Director Andrew McCabe lauded Biden‘s Attorney General Merrick Garland‘s new strategy to combat domestic terrorism on CNN Tuesday, stating that ‘racially motivated, ethnically motivated extremists’ are the most serious threat in the nation. The new strategy by Garland has been criticized by opponents, who contend the Justice Department is expanding its powers to weaponize its tools of investigation for political purposes.

During Garland’s announcement, the attorney general mentioned the congressional baseball shooting, that nearly took the life of House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-LA, as a recent example of a Democratic supporter being politically motivated toward violence against Republicans.

It is here that McCabe switched course. McCabe, who was fired in March, 2018, for lying multiple times to the the DOJ’s Inspector General’s investigators about his role in the Russia investigation into President Trump, then went on to cover up the FBI’s failure to resolve the investigation into the shooting that targeted Republican members in 2017.

McCabe, who became a CNN contributor after spreading the Russia hoax theory, said he thought the mention of the shooting was significant, but said Garland’s example was deft. He noted that while he was acting FBI director in 2017 during the time of the shooting, the bureau didn’t uncover the assailant’s motives. All this, despite the fact that the shooter openly asked if the baseball players practicing were Republicans before opening fire on the teams.

Moreover, the shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, had a long record of posting anti- Republican social media posts. The 66-year-old gunman was ultimately killed in a shootout with police in Alexandria, Virginia. He seriously injured Scalise and four others.

Hodgkinson wrote several months before the shooting on Facebook that “Republicans are the Taliban of the USA.”

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
