Jared Loghner had been stalking Congresswoman Giffords for over four years, and was upset with her for voting against Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, in last week's Speaker of the House election.
According to the President, this was not the cause for his killing spree. "This mentally disturbed young man was probably pushed over the edge by something he heard on FoxNews" he suggested.
This tragic and senseless event has provided the Radical Democrats with a golden opportunity to ban guns and put further limits on political dissent and free speech.
"We can milk this thing just like President Clinton milked the Oklahoma bombing" White House Chief of Staff Richard Daley told us. "We probably need to pin this one on Sarah Palin, R-AK, to prevent her from running for President in 2012."
Jared Loughner, the shooter, was described by his friends and teachers as "an anarchist, an anti Semite, and radical leftwing nutcase." His favorite books included The Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf. So while it would be difficult to label him as a "right winger" it seemed more credible to call him "mentally ill, and inflamed by people who oppose President Obama's socialist agenda."
There is no evidence available that would suggest that Loughner was a Muslim, but he did shave off all his hair and eyebrows prior to the shooting spree. This is said to be an Islamic custom proscribed by their Quran prior to any suicide mission.
"Goodbye," Loughner posted on his MySpace account at approximately 5 a.m. Saturday. "Dear friends ... Please don't be mad at me."
Photos on MySpace show a close-up picture of an automatic handgun sitting atop a book or paper titled United States History. This picture is accompanied by several videos posted to Loughner's Youtube account, including one of a masked man burning a U.S. flag and another with the words, "Don't trust the current government, listener!"
It is unclear whether Loughner is the person burning the flag in the video.
On both the MySpace and YouTube web pages, Loughner mentions he talks about his distrust of the government and suggests that anyone can call anyone a terrorist.
"I can't trust the current government because of fabrications," Loughner wrote in a YouTube slide presentation. "The government is implying mind control and brainwash on the people by controlling grammar."
