Shooter at Joel Osteen’s Houston Church had ‘Free Palestine’ on Gun

Shooter at Joel Osteen’s Houston Church had ‘Free Palestine’ on Gun

Another buried lede: “Moreno had a criminal history dating back to 2005, and previously identified as Jeffery Escalante, according to a Texas Department of Public Safety records search.”

Sources told KHOU that the woman who opened fire at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston, TX, was Genesse Ivonne Moreno.

CNN reported that federal law enforcement said the woman’s gun had ‘Free Palestine’ on it.

The network buried it in the story.

Off-duty cops shot and killed Moreno. She had a child with her, who is in critical condition.

Another portion buried in the news? Moreno also went under the name Jeffrey.

From KHOU (emphasis mine):

[Houston Police Chief Troy] Finner said before Moreno died, she mentioned she had a bomb. Finner said a bomb squad searched the church and the vehicle and backpack and found no evidence of explosives.

Finner also said Moreno sprayed a substance on the ground. He said investigators weren’t sure what it was.

Moreno had a criminal history dating back to 2005, and previously identified as Jeffery Escalante, according to a Texas Department of Public Safety records search. Prior arrests include failure to stop and give information, assault of a public servant, assault causing bodily injury, forgery, possession of marijuana, theft, evading arrest unlawful carrying weapon.

The motive behind the shooting is unknown.

Considering the percentage of trans people in the general population, they certainly do seem to have an outsized propensity for mass shootings……

    Well this one was only an attempted mass shooting …

    Thank goodness she came at the wrong time. An hour earlier or later and it might have been a mass shooting before she could be stopped.

      thus PROVING once more that having citizens armed and prepared to SHOOT BACK is the BEST means of ending, and preventing, mass shooting attempts. As it is, the perp is the only dead one. Two innocents hit but seems they will make it back to normal. This one won’t make it into the list of “mass public shootings”.

      Texas has had it as law on the books for many years now that private citizens who are lawfully able to carry firearms upon their persons in public may also do so in “houses of worship”. I have had the privildege of doing that myself on a number of occasions in the state of Texas.

      Hah, one time, visiting with friends, I simply went into the church with my “friend” on my hip, never said a word. Before the pastor began his sermon I had the sense HE was armed. During the offering I “smelled” that at least some of the ushers were as well, and at least half of the elders. Didn’t SEE anything, just got that feeling. After I met one of the members and as we chatted I noticed that HE was armed.. he also had a military bearing and awareness. No blatantly so, but discernible. He let me know that all the “officers’ of the church (pastor, ell elders, deacons, and nearly three fourths of the rest of the men were always armed, and the wives of all the elders and deacons were as well, along with about half of the adult female population. No winder I felt so comfortable, safe, at ease in their midst. None had any “tough guy” air about them, nor were they beady-eyed always searching. Just very aware, at peace, and comfortable. I have no idea how many others thought I was armed, but did not care.
      That’s how it SHOULD be. Protected but not “nervous” and suspicious. .

        It’s been reported that the off-duty cops who shot the perpetrator were employed by the church as security guards.

        Also that this particular church permits concealed carry but not open carry.

      One report (I got it second hand, so add salt) said the child was the child of the shooter’s “husband” (by a previous arrangement), but he wasn’t supposed to be around the child because he was a sex offender. But I’m still confused over the pronouns used in the stories….

The shooter used an AR-15 that had “Free Palestine” written on it, according to a federal law enforcement source. Investigators are trying to determine whether she was politically motivated or a disturbed individual, the source said.

      We need to think about therapeutic hormones like mood altering drugs, because they are. Anything that impacts metabolism, too.

      There’s an excellent article from The Atlantic some years ago remarkably about this (also notable for being an excellent article from The Atlantic), by a middle-lib professional progressive woman on prescribed T treatments.

      She describes how her experience of everything was different, like describing being on a psychoactive drug. In one conclusion, she said she in a sense got men in a way she didn’t before.

      None of this means it’s bad or wrong to be under the influence of any of these hormones. Being supplemented to different level than you’re used to will put you in a state you’re not used to managing. Maybe forewarned might keep you from shooting up a church.

      that’s just a twenny dollah word for mixed up crazy disconnected from reality. If someone can look”down there” when they are standing in the shower, observe what is “down there” then walk out and still be confused about whether they are male or female, they need to be separated from the rest of society until they figure things out.

The vile Dhimmi-crats believe that it’s not a sufficient challenge dealing with Muslim supremacism and terrorism; thus, these reprobates incite and enable tranny terrorism, as well.

I’m really conflicted on this one.

I’m a little confused. The booking sheet says she was a “non-hispanic” and was “white”.

But born in El-Salvador

Isn’t El-Salvador a Hispanic country?

        Don’t take things so literally.

        Zimmerman’s trial is fairly described as a show trial in the sense that the prosecution was transparently vindictive, the prosecution was manifestly politically motivated (to sate the Dhimmi-crat mob’s bloodlust), and, the trial never should have taken place (given that the facts and law supported a clear-cut conclusion that Zimmerman exercised a lawful right to lethal self-defense.

        That should be clear enough for any rational person to understand.

        Danny… the trial was in Florida and not D.C. , so the verdict was in doubt. D.C. is a no-go zone now plus, as the Steyn-Mann trial shows,any Dem fellow traveler can win by using the D.C. courts. Even little climate gnome Michael Mann.

        I am convinced that the D.C. Swamp can’t be drained but vaporized. All that it takes is for a few more wrong moves by this and any Dem administration. A little rough on the monuments though.

        It was intended as a show trial. It just all went wrong. The judge wasn’t in on it, and the defendant unexpectedly had a good lawyer. The prosecutor wasn’t expecting that. But the reason that he was tried at all was to put on a performance. It was so the prosecutor could signal her virtue. I think that justifies the term “show trial”.

    Didn’t you know?? When the left wants to blame the right…the perpetrator is ALWAYS white. Remember…it started with Saint Trayvon, when that nasty racist, white Hispanic Geoge Zimmerman had the actual GALL to defend himself against getting his head slammed over and over and over again into a cement sidewalk, by a crazed, drugged 17 year old THUG who was casing houses which have been being hit by a burglar, which is why that white Hispanic was doing a neighborhood watch. The left knew, to fit their lying narrative, he had to be white first.

    More interesting and potentially conflicting information from The Blaze’s Sarah Gonzales. The shooter was under an ‘ICE detainer’ in 2010. But, she apparently voted in the 2020 Election. That’s not possible….the left assures us.

    https://twitter.com/SaraGonzalesTX/status/1757162049279332687

    The shooter was definitely born in El Salvador and for some period of time, was on ICE’s radar. I guess it’s possible she married someone and found herself on a path to citizenship, possibly obtaining US citizenship sometime before 2020. Or, she voted illegally.

I can’t shake the feeling that people are hanging transgender on this case gratuitously. What I see is a born female, who doesn’t seem to be even trying to present herself as male (OK, so she aged and isn’t wearing makeup in the photo, she looks pretty basic but she still doesn’t look male). She used a male alias in the past for doing whatever crimes, that doesn’t make her trans. I’m suspending judgment on this assumption.

    Well… today HotAirreports more definitively that the shooter was a trans-woman, born male. So we cant blame testosterone overload, just the usual nuckin’ futz.
    HotAir makes good mention of the police’s tendency to be entirely opaque when a criminal is found to be a trans or an illegal.

      The HotAir article is not supported by the source it links to for support. Karen Townsend seems incapable of reading for content. On the contrary, it appears not only that the shooter is biologically female, but that, as you speculated yesterday, she has never identified as male but has merely used masculine aliases.

      Also, it appears, at least according to this source, that reports of the weapon bearing a sticker reading “Free Palestine” were incorrect, and all it said was “Palestine”.

they of course are now tying her in to the right wing

she “cleaned her ar-15”

andddd

RAILED AGAINST TEACHERS

next thing you know

bad orange man sent her ammo

Perusing this creature’s list of “Priors” I noticed at least three causes of arrest that would disqualify any person from the lawful use of arms. WHY IS IT that such persons are allowed to be freely roaming about in public, armed or disarmed? Can’t trust someone with a gun, why trust them without one? If they can’t be trusted in public WITH a gun, assign them a custodian. Or lock them up. Nearly every one of these significant shootings SHOULD have been prevented by locking up the perp BEFORE they opened fire.

and the “solution” pushed by the lefties is to disarm all of us.. leaving us all defenseless against just this sort of event. Translation: dependent upon and subject to THEM.

Don’t buy that.

Yeah, sure, s/he had “Free Palestine” on the gun. What I want to know is what was his/her motive?

I would say I’m a Dem, but you know I’m being sarcastic.
