“The illusion of freedom will continue as long 
as it's profitable to continue the illusion.
At the point where the illusion becomes too 
expensive to maintain, they will just take 
down the scenery, they will pull back the 
curtains, they will move the tables and chairs 
out of the way and you will see 
the brick wall at the back of the theater.”

Congressman Steve Scalise sustained a single rifle shot to the left hip. The bullet travelled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding. He was transported in shock to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, a Level I Trauma Center. He underwent immediate surgery, and an additional procedure to stop bleeding. He has received multiple units of blood transfusion. His condition is critical, and he will require additional operations. We will provide periodic updates.
President Donald Trump made a surprise visit to the hospital on Wednesday evening, and later tweeted out that Scalise is in "tough shape" but a "real fighter." He then urged people to pray.

The shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, was killed by Capitol Police.
