Attempted Vehicle Attack At U.S. Capitol

Between this nonsense yesterday and the repeated attempts to breach the White House grounds, I think it’s safe to say far too many Americans have gone clinically insane.

At 9:22 a.m. (Wednesday), Capitol police officers observed an “erratic and aggressive driver” in the vicinity of 100 Independence Ave, according to Eva Malecki, communications director for the United States Capitol Police.

As the officers tried to stop the vehicle, the driver pulled a U-turn and fled the scene, apparently striking another vehicle and nearly hitting officers. A brief pursuit ensued until the female suspect was stopped at Washington Ave.

Capitol Police fired shots in an attempt to stop the driver. No one was hit, police said. The female suspect – Taleah Everett, 20, who was held on seven counts of assault of a police officer and two counts of destruction of property, among other charges – was apprehended at 3rd and Independence Ave.

The incident appears to be criminal in nature with no nexus to terrorism, Malecki added.

The incident began at 9:22am, and in the ABC News story – posted at 10:30am – they claim this is not an act of terrorism. Maybe, maybe not, but how can a thorough investigation determine that in an hour? The answer is, they can’t.

  1. Someone said “This country has not been this divided since the Civil War” and I am inclined to agree. Bipartisanship is a thing of the past with politicians and the main stream media has the rest of us divided along very partisan lines. I shudder to think what lies ahead.

  2. I would have to say this country is much more divided than it was in 1861. Not looking good out there. Alfie is correct, terrorists need not apply. Looney libs will do the damage for them. Then again, a bunch of looney Republicans seem to be helping too.

  3. Cathy – There is no need for a travel ban since all the morons are already here.

    Metoo – It can only get worse. I blame the media above all else. Their range is still very wide, and far too many people believe their nonsense.

    RG – Especially when the POTUS starts trashing the Freedom Caucus on Twitter.
