Cause Christmas Eve Is Here

Merry Christmas everyone.

A Toby Ziegler Christmas quote.

"Let me tell you something, the last two Christmases in this White House I've been accused of not being in the proper spirit. I was called names. Not this year! For the next three weeks I will be filling this lobby with music in the mornings and evenings so that we may all experience this season of... [turning to musicians with annoyance] Would you people stop playing for one damn minute!
This season of peace and joy."

-Toby Ziegler

Merry Christmas everyone.

Pensacola Naval base shooting: Gunman was a military pilot from Saudi Arabia training in the U.S.

PENSACOLA, Fla. - An assailant opened fire Friday morning at Naval Air Station Pensacola, leaving three people dead and several others injured before Florida sheriff’s deputies shot and killed him in the second deadly shooting at a naval base this week.
The gunman was a military pilot from Saudi Arabia training in the United States, according to a senior U.S. official.

It was unclear whether the three deceased victims were service members or civilians, said Lt. Cmdr. Megan Isaac, a Navy spokeswoman. Multiple people were taken to hospitals, including two Escambia County sheriff’s deputies who are expected to survive, Chief Deputy Chip Simmons said during a Friday morning news conference.

Reports of an active shooting inside an air station classroom came in at 6:51 a.m., drawing a major law enforcement response in the Florida Panhandle city. The base was placed on lockdown, the Navy said, with its gates secured. After about an hour, the sheriff’s office took to Facebook with an announcement: “There is no longer an active shooter on NAS Pensacola. The shooter is confirmed dead.”

The incident shook a community whose identity is deeply entwined with the base, with many residents either employed there or tied to the industry that sprawls alongside Pensacola Bay. The number of personnel assigned there is almost half the population of the city itself.
