Source: NYPost

The gunman who opened fire at a Virginia Walmart has been identified as Andre Bing, a manager at the store, who killed six co-workers before taking his own life.

A Facebook Live video apparently made by a Walmart employee had been circulating online showing a co-worker that she calls “Andre.”

The young man is seen joking with the workers before he walks away when the woman points her camera at him. It was unclear when the footage was shot.

Chief of Chesapeake Police Mark Solesky said the gunman killed six co-workers before killing himself with a handgun

Apparently he gave NO indication of what he was about to do.

Early voting in GA up over 150% from 2020.

It looks like GA REALLY wants to smack the "trump choice" for governor. If kemp wins a 4 way race without a runoff it will be a HUGE defeat for trump. Kemp was his #1 target

Jill Biden pays surprise visit to Ukraine, meets first lady

UZHHOROD, Ukraine (AP) — U.S. first lady Jill Biden made an unannounced visit to western Ukraine on Sunday, holding a surprise Mother’s Day meeting with the nation’s first lady, Olena Zelenska, as Russia presses its punishing war in the eastern regions.

Biden traveled under the cloak of secrecy, becoming the latest high-profile American to enter Ukraine during its 10-week-old conflict with Russia.

“I wanted to come on Mother’s Day,” Biden told Zelenska. “I thought it was important to show the Ukrainian people that this war has to stop and this war has been brutal and that the people of the United States stand with the people of Ukraine.”

The first lady traveled by vehicle to the town of Uzhhorod, about a 10-minute drive from a Slovakian village that borders Ukraine. She spent about two hours in Ukraine.

When I saw where she was visiting yesterday, I had a good feeling she was going to do this. What a big "FU" to Putin.

Seems like a good time for Georgia to push Russia OUT of their country

Seems like the forces of the invaders have been reduced to be sent to UKR, so why not open a 2nd front. Sure hurt the Germans when they had 2 fronts to defend.
Worth a shot

Rep. Adam Kinzinger Pushes 'Uneasy Alliance' to Thwart Trump's Allies

NEW YORK (AP) — In the high-stakes fight for the GOP’s future, Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., is calling on Democrats and independents to form an “uneasy alliance” with Republicans to fight former President Donald Trump's influence.

Kinzinger, one of Trump’s fiercest Republican critics in Congress, has directed his political organization to initiate a novel campaign to convince non-Republicans to support anti-Trump Republican candidates in GOP primary contests across the country later this year. Experts suggest the practice, sometimes known as “party raiding,” will be hard to execute on a broad scale, but Kinzinger warned that failure to shift the GOP’s embrace of Trump could undermine democracy or even lead to “failed state.”

“People need to wake up to that real possibility,” Kinzinger, who is not seeking reelection this fall, told The Associated Press. “We have to be able to have uneasy alliances, as uneasy as they may be in this moment.”

There are few modern examples of a sitting Republican member of Congress so openly asking Democrats to help take down a former president of his own party.

I already planned to do this in GA. Stacy Abrams has no primary opponent anyway. Defeat Perdue & Jody Hice. And if you're in a reliably Red state, even MORE reason to do it. Vote in the GOP primary and defeat the Trump shills that he needs in place to tamper with the NEXT election. If you live in Liz Cheney's district, vote for her.
Not only does it defeat trumps lackeys, the bonus is that it will drive Trump absolutely NUTS

Officers in California saved a pilot who crashed onto railroad tracks seconds before a train smashed the wreckage into pieces.

On Sunday, a Cessna 172 made an emergency landing around 2 p.m. PT shorty after takeoff from Whiteman Airport in Pacoima, according to the Associated Press.

Two officers from the Los Angeles Police Department can be seen on body camera footage pulling the bloodied pilot to safety moments before the train collided with the aircraft.

"Go, go go!" one of the officers shouted while running away.

A scene you usually only see in a movie. Just amazing they got him out.

(the pilot is a little bloody if that sight bothers anyone)
