Shooting in Wisconsin: Who is Wade Michael Page? (Open Thread)

Here we go again. Another shooting.  Another set of odd circumstances.  Wade Michael Page is the alleged shooter at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, where seven died, including the alleged gunman.  Page was 40 years old and was shot dead at the scene by police, so we may never know his motivation.   As usual, the media and law enforcement immediately referred to him as a lone gunman, white, and an example of “domestic terrorism.” 

Nidal Hasan; Fort Hood Shooter

We don’t recall the media or law enforcement referring to Nidal Hasan as an Islamic supremacist or even a practitioner of terrorism, much less “domestic terrorism.”  Does it make a difference if one is an “ex” member of the military versus a current member of the military?   Odd how much Hasan resembles Page, in more ways than one.

Was Page a former member of the military?  The FBI has seized Page’s military records.

As with the shooting in Colorado, when initial reports spoke of another person being sought, the FBI is looking for another white male, and yet he’s only a “person of interest” and authorities continue to “believe” that Page acted alone.   

Although there were reports of more than one shooter, Edwards said Monday investigators are confident there was only one gunman.

Even if Page wasn’t on the radar screen of local police, the radical progressive organization Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) piped up immediately to say that they have been “watching” Page for over a decade, although they pointedly do not seem to watch potential Muslim terrorists.  I would take with a grain of salt anything these leftists (to be kind) report.  Police are investigating Page’s alleged ties to “white supremacists.”

This story contains an interview of “frustrated Neo-Nazi” (according to SPLC) Wade Michael Page, in which he spoke about his band End Apathy, which the SPLC refers to as a “racist white supremacist” band, although there’s nothing in the interview to indicate anything of the kind.  From the same story:

Authorities said Wade Michael Page strode into the temple without saying a word and opened fire using a 9mm handgun and multiple magazines of ammunition.

Page joined the Army in 1992 and was discharged in 1998, according to a defense official who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not yet authorized to release the information. …

End Apathy’s biography on the band’s MySpace page said it was based in Nashville, N.C.

Joseph Rackley of Nashville, N.C., said Monday that Page lived with his son for about six months last year in a house on Rackley’s property. Wade was bald and had tattoos all over his arms, Rackley said, but he doesn’t remember what they depicted. He said he wasn’t aware of any ties Page had to white supremacists. …

Page joined the military in Milwaukee in 1992 and was a repairman for the Hawk missile system before switching jobs to become one of the Army’s psychological operations specialists, according to the defense official.

So-called “psy-ops” specialists are responsible for the analysis, development and distribution of intelligence used for information and psychological effect. Fort Bragg, N.C., was among the bases where Page served. …

Late Sunday, the investigation moved beyond the temple as police, federal agents and the county sheriff’s bomb squad swarmed a neighborhood in nearby Cudahy, evacuated several homes and searched a duplex. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agent Tom Ahern said warrants were being served at the gunman’s home.


Our condolences to the families of the victims.  Keep them in your prayers.

  1. I love this straight shooter even if he is a Brit – he is fighting for the US and the world in many areas. He has supported Sheriff Joe, his investigation, alarmed the Brits about Obama’s forged BC, and taken on the fraud of global warming, as well as the less than illustrious con man, Al Gore. We need all the help we can get!

    Lord’ Monckton joins commentary team
    Former aide to Margaret Thatcher ‘high priest of climate skepticism’
    August 8 Snip

    An internationally known challenger to the claims of climate-change alarmists and former special adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, debuts today as an exclusive commentator for WND. Christopher Monckton, often referred to in America with the misnomer “Lord Monckton”.

    Monckton in June warned his hereditary peers in the U.K. That the Obama presidency is in danger of falling because of evidence he considers conclusive that Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery. “Mr. Obama’s legitimacy is now in doubt,” Monckton proclaimed in a 20-page report.

    Monckton’s exclusive column will appear each Wednesday.

    • FYI: “In British practice, the title of a viscount may be either a place name, or a surname, or sometimes, a combination thereof. In any event, the style of a viscount is “The Viscount [X]”, or “The Viscount [X] of [Y]”. He is addressed as “My Lord”. Examples include The Viscount Falmouth (place name); The Viscount Hardinge (surname); The Viscount Gage of Castle Island (surname of place name); and The Viscount Combermere of Bhurtpore (placename of placename). An exception exists for Viscounts in the peerage of Scotland, who were traditionally styled “The Viscount of [X]”, as in: The Viscount of Arbuthnott (surname)—very few maintain this style, instead using the more common version “The Viscount [X]”. A British viscount is addressed in speech as Lord [X], while his wife is Lady [X], and he is formally styled “The Viscount [X]”. The children of a viscount are known as The Honourable [Forename] [Surname].”

      Seems it’s not a “misnomer” to call him Lord Monckton. How do you read that?

      Nevertheless, I love him and am glad he’ll be writing for WND. The only thing better would be if he would write for us! 🙂

  2. Have you seen this? It is the word on the street! I even heard it while I was standing in line at the grocery store. Tit for Tats!

    Harry Reid is a pedophile
    mbecker908 (Diary)
    August 2, 2012

    I got that from a reliable source who made me promise not to reveal his name. But he knows. Honest.

    Now I’m sure some would expect me to back up this claim with some of those “fact” thingys or maybe a link or two. Well, given that I’ve promise anonymity for my source, not happening. Just Google “Harry Reid pedophile” there are 1.79 million hits.

    I’ve known this for some time but I was reluctant to go public with the information because I always back up my writing with facts and links. Since I’m sworn to secrecy this time I was uncomfortable putting this story out until some seminal events occurred this week, and I figured “what’s good for the goose…”

    • Glenn gives Harry Reid a taste of his own medicine…
      Just as Glenn was about to get worked up about the Majority Leader’s completely unAmerican comments, an “anonymous” call came in (from someone who sounded a LOT like Stu) with their own idiotic, baseless claims…

      GLENN: Hello.
      CALLER: I have information.
      GLENN: You have information you want to share with me? What is it?
      VOICE: About Harry Reid.
      GLENN: About Harry Reid?
      VOICE: Yes. I can’t tell you exactly how I know this.
      GLENN: Okay.
      VOICE: But Harry Reid is a pedophile rapist.
      GLENN: He’s a pedophile rapist?
      VOICE: Yes.
      GLENN: Wow. I mean, if somebody came before Congress and wanted to be a– you know, somebody wanted to be a, you know, a cabinet member, you couldn’t be a pedophile rapist. How long has he been a pedophile rapist?
      VOICE: Approximately 25 years!

    • The New York Times does it, so why not use “anonymous sources”? Now, I’m not saying that I know for certain that it’s true, but I got a call from the same person, telling me the same thing. It’s up to Harry to prove he’s not, now that the allegation is out there.

  3. Corporate Wives: Doing their Fair Share in order to get a Fair Shot
    August 9, 2012 Snip

    I have to make it quick today – I have an appointment over at Langley to re-qualify for my concealed carry permit and Super-Secret Service Double-Agent badge.

    I leave you to contemplate this blockbuster revelation from Big Guy: Lady M is not getting compensated fairly for her many First Lady responsibilities! I guess it’s part of the Republicans’ War on Women.

    [Obama] “…I wanna make sure that when she’s working she is getting paid the same as men, I gotta say that First Ladies right now don’t, even though that’s a tough job!”

    No kidding: being First Lady is waaay tougher than that job as VP of Community Relations at the University of Chicago. And Lady M made $317,000 (plus perks) for her services there, after Senator Big Guy got UC a $1 million earmark.

  4. Army Major Nidal Hasan’s lawyers seek to block testimony
    August 09, 2012 Snip

    AUSTIN — Another pre-trial hearing is scheduled Thursday morning for the accused gunman in the shootings at Fort Hood.

    Hasan’s lawyers want to block testimony from Evan Kohlmann. Kohlmann is a terrorism expert who’s testified in more than two dozen other cases in government court. He studied the shooting rampage on post and concluded that Hasan is a “homegrown terrorist.”‘ [What else would he be called? The massacre of 13 soldiers and 32 wounded was called “workplace violence” by our pandering Obama government! They didn’t want to label him a Muslim terrorist and upset CAIR.].

    Hasan’s trial is still set to begin on Aug. 20. [Will the Muslim terrorist shave or will the trial be delayed? He has not only cost lives, but all of his tactics keep this killer alive a few more days. Good luck seeing those virgins, whenever Hasan. He is paying a price being paralyzed. Yet we are paying his medical bills.]

  5. Gazillions
    Judge Andrew Napolitano
    August 9, 2012 Snips

    Gazillions. That’s the number of times the federal government has spied on Americans since 9/11 through the use of drones, legal search warrants, illegal search warrants, federal agent-written search warrants and just plain government spying. This is according to Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who, when he asked the government to tell him what it was doing to violate our privacy, was given a classified briefing. The senator — one of just a few in the U.S. Senate who believes that the Constitution means what it says — was required by federal law to agree not to reveal what spies and bureaucrats told him during the briefing.

    The rules for classified briefings of members of Congress on areas of government behavior that the government wants to keep from its employers — the American people — are a real Catch-22.
    The point here is terrifying. If the government derives its powers from the consent of the governed, how can it do things to us to which we have not consented? And when it does these things — like send a drone over your back yard to learn who is coming to your Saturday barbeque or to see what fertilizer you are using in your vegetable garden or to take a peek into your living room or bedroom — and when the laws the government has written prevent our elected representatives from telling us what it is doing, we are at the doorsteps of tyranny. The government gave Paul the distinct impression that it was afraid of our exercise of our personal freedoms, and thus it needs to watch us as we do so. This is the same government whose stated principal purpose is to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution, and thus personal freedom.

    • Of course the “government” is afraid. We threaten their very existence when we want LIMITED government, as the Constitution says. We threaten those commie progressives who want to explode government and use it just as they are using it–to create an all-seeing, all-knowing, all-deciding Big Brother dictatorship.

      Who will be OUR generation’s “Deep Throat”? Does saying “gazillions” constitute telling?


    That’s Lord Monckton’s first column for WND. It’s a goodie.

    • Indeed it is. I like his symbolic title.

      Christopher Monckton of Brenchley warns of ‘bright-Red’ plans for next 4 years
      August 7, 2012 Snips

      The late Milton Friedman won his Nobel Prize for Economics for his work demonstrating that any activity carried out by the State costs twice as much and produces half as much as the same activity in the private sector.

      One corollary of the Friedman Multiple is that every time a politician announces that taxpayers’ money will be spent on “creating jobs,” in net terms he will in fact be destroying just as many jobs as he says he is “creating.” Remember that next time you hear a politician or bureaucrat say he is “creating jobs.” Friedman also pointed out that democracy would fail once the spending of the governing class exceeded one-quarter of national output, because too many people would have their snouts in the taxpayer’s pocket.

      The forthcoming presidential contest is between a successful businessman with a proven and spectacular track record and a know-nothing, amateur community activist whose first executive order was to conceal all details of his track record.

      To deal with the monstrous overspending and socialistic self-indulgence of the bureaucratic class, and the consequent runaway deficit, you don’t need two guesses to know whom to choose.

  7. I love it – another day with Wayne Allen Root. This time it is with the RINO (or Libertarian Paul bot as Dr. P has called him) Geraldo. Root was on Hannity also where he called Obama a usurper. I haven’t seen that one yet. He calls him a Foreign Exchange Student.

    From ORYR – Obama Classmate Schools Geraldo Rivera About Obama’s Indonesian Name Barry Soetoro

    He interviewed Wayne Allen Root. He was Barry Soetoro at Columbia, says Root.

    Geraldo calls on Presidential biographer, Michael Tarkett, to dispute and malign Root. (Listen to his Leftist pitch. He is talking about Romney and the topic is Obama. He says these are all attempts to make Obama a foreigner or non American with no real evidence.) Show us the proof then Obama and Geraldo – Show us the documents that Root is wrong in his assumptions or theory! Root is not Mr. Anonymous like Dirty Harry refers to in his attacks on Mitt.

  10. Obama Occidental classmate confirmed, Obama scholarship, Obama went by Barry, Bill Snider classmate, Obama having too much fun, Citizen Wells exclusive
    August 7, 2012

    “Everyone called him Barry,”…Bill Snider, Obama Occidental classmate
    “We were both scholarship students,” Bill Snider, Obama Occidental classmate

    I did not report the following story from the Greensboro News Record when it first appeared. I had no confirmation and it was not the right time. I now have confirmation from a highly reliable, knowledgeable source. I was not asked to keep the information confidential, but I will do so to protect an innocent party. I did not request the info, it fell into my lap. God moves in mysterious ways.

    It is time to report this. From the Greensboro News Record April 19, 2010.

    “Downtown baker knew Obama way back when”
    “Bill Snider bucked other classmates by calling him “Barack.”
    “Everyone called him Barry,” Snider says. “I didn’t. I loved the name Barack.”

    Thirty years ago, Snider, who now owns Simple Kneads Bakery here, shared the proverbial battered collegiate sofa with Obama and others at Occidental College in Los Angeles. The sofa was in the basement of Haines Hall next to Obama’s dorm room. Snider and other students who lived off campus hung out in the basement between classes. Obama often joined them. “We talked about music and politics,” Snider says, as well as a demand by Occidental students that the college divest its investments in South Africa. “A big movement was under way for (Ted) Kennedy,” he says. “I personally supported John Anderson. Actually, my freshman year, I was a college Republican.” Nevertheless, he had a lot in common with Obama.

    “We were both scholarship students,” says Snider, an Ohio native. “We came a great distance to Occidental. Neither of us had a father. My father died when I was 6. We were both broke.

    Snider says the Obama he sees on television seems like the same deliberate — and politically moderate — guy who at Occidental always thought through decisions about his studies and his life. [Guess he wasn’t part of the Marxist crowd! – Politically Moderate and broke? Two lies we can see immediately.]


    • Does the other student, John Drew, who attended Occidental that has recorded information about Obama’s Marxist ways, know this Bill Snider?

      Bill’s Bakery closed this year. I say hogwash once again. To many pat talking points.

      • It does seem like hogwash. The guy says he hasn’t seen Obama since college but then he says Barry was “pretty shocked himself” when he won the election. And he says Barry never said he would run for the presidency, although that’s contradicted by nearly everybody else who ever knew him! But the clincher is taht Bill, who hasn’t seen Barry since college, claims Barry’s too busy at the moment but they’ll have “time to catch up” later. It’s b.s.

    • But Barry had a father. He wasn’t dead yet, was he? Whoops! Obama on TV “seems like” the guy he knew when they were teens? Hmmmm. If Barry was broke, it conforms with the theory that he used his foreign status to get scholarships for FOREIGN students. If he had a scholarship and this guy says he did. Based upon what? Not his crummy grades. His teachers said he was a poor student. It was reported that his mother despaired of him because he was such a slacker and choomer. Yes, Snider sounds a little like one of the recruited fabulists. Dr. Drew says that Barry was VERY radical and VERY outspoken as a MARXIST when he was at Oxy.

      • Random thoughts: Barry most likely had ‘sponsorships’ for his education vs. ‘scholorships’ where performance was required. The dope smoking loser image does not match up with video of him speaking at Bell’s event. His mother and grandmother could easily afford the tuition. So could Lolo. Barry did not need to get good grades or even go to classes because that is not why/what he went to college for. Sort of like our little Ms. Fluke. She was not at college to perform academically, but politically. It was her job. How did Barry get selected, so to speak, for the higher levels within the community organization machine in Chicago? Perhaps he already had a “worked my way up the ladder” resume from all his years of ‘working’ at the universities?

  11. I always hate to divert a message thread, but here goes. I’m a bit obsessed with that photo of the East-West party group with Barak, Sr at the Nachmanoff’s house…mostly who took it and how did it become public? I found this copy of the photo on and noticed the name of the file…if anyone can derive any info from the filename, here it is:

    Not sure if “Mysel” is a name? or maybe it was “myself” and got shortened? There is a “dave” listed in the photo…Finkeldtein? Finkelstein (a typo)? Mysel?
    Also, I’ve read the Neil Abercrombie “memories” many times but this time noticed the contradiction between his assertion that SAD “was the only woman” in their group of friends and the fact that all of the photos have lots of women.

  12. There’s another photo from the same party

    Photos names etc…. the beach shot with BHO Sr speaking… are 4
    of the choom~gang sitting in the middle all ears? Looks like um.

  14. Want some PAGE connections Miri to add here ? Just yodel if you do. I will round them up with some chocolate too.

  15. Yikes…. to enter above… you must enter…in… BIG DADDY’s name!

    IS the group in the middle sitting on the sand (1 gal Anne Niamoto? & 3 guys) could be same group in the house party photos cheering him on…
    The long list has so much as does each and every highlighted piece.

  18. For Wade Michael Page, his bullet has the name of a man with a blue turban, Satwant Singh Kaleka.

  19. I do not know if anyone knows or cares if Wade Michael Page is buried or cremated.

  20. Prophetically, Wade Michael Page’s friend was Darren Sherlock, Sherlock shares the similar sounding name as the victim of the worst Elementary School shooting in the history of North America, was Mary Sherlach (pronounced like Sherlock). Page lived in Holmes Avenue, and here is the kicker: Holmes Avenue is the same last name as the man, Dan Holmes was a witness to the Nancy Lanza’s collection of guns in Connectiut! Sherlock and Holmes. This world is very crazy!

    • We’ve paid him long enough and taken care of his medical bills. Lets end it soon. What in the world can the defense say? How many witnesses were there? Old Sparkey is waiting in Texas. In fact, he should be brought out of the Huntsville museum just for the special occasion!

  21. Fort Hood …RARITY…..? Military Executions…lets make an Exception!!!
    …..Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan…. I’d love to have him for just …1 minute….

  22. There is a good James: James Radley Mattioli. Mattioli has the same last name as the discoverer of a cat allergy. Rest in peace, James.

  23. There is a hero was born in an non-marital liasion: Jesse McCord Lewis. Lewis was the son of Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis. A hero died execution style: Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung. A cousin of Benjamin Franklin died, Victoria Leigh Soto.

  24. The distant cousin of Muhammad Ali, Jeremiah Alvin Neitz tried to convert the gunman to Christianity, but he chose to shoot himself. His brother, Mike, said, “he doesn’t believe in God,” but Jeremiah said, “Well, Mike, he does now.” Craig A. Pepin died a hero and a saint, and he all French-Canadian. The two victims, one is part Native American, Edwin LeRoy Kennison and Douglas A. Scruton, is part New England Yankee stock. Mary Sherlach is related to Lord Calvert and Ninian Beall. Mark Renninger died and he was the cousin of Candy Corn inventor, George Renninger. There is three heroes died in Washington Navy Yard: Arthur Lee Daniels (a man of African origin and his last name came from the slaveowners), Gerald Eugene Read (a man of Scots-Irish (Ulster Scots)) origin, and RIchard Michael Ridgell (a man of very old Maryland stock). There is another hero: Michael Terrance Landsberry, a man of New England Yankee stock.

  25. Jack Reginald Beaton, Jr. is a true hero. So does, Brett Erin Schwanbeck. So does James Sonny Melton (the “Sonny” is not a nickname but a part of his given name like Sonny Curtis). So does, Erick Steven Silva (a man of Mexican origin). So does, John Joseph Phippen. So does Christopher James Hazencomb. So does Taylor Winston a hero. Due to the so many victims of Las Vegas, the heroes list is endless.
