Revealed: The Brutal Thing That Happened Same Day Marine Was Attacked Outside McDonalds

The attack and robbery of former Marine, Chris Marquez, on Feb. 12, as he exited a McDonald’s in D.C. made headline news.

This was not a lone incident. According to The Gateway Pundit, there was a second, unrelated attack on a Marine that day.

In the second attack, Operation Iraqi Freedom Marine, 35-year old Michael Schoeder, was viciously attacked, struck in the head and robbed. Schroeder was seen in the street, face down and beat up between two cars.

A man and his son driving by in a taxi saw Schoeder, contacted authorities and reported the attack.

Deidre Schroeder, the victim’s mother, was interviewed by WUSA-9. She said, “It’s an angel whoever found him and I’m very, very grateful. Michael could’ve died that night.”

Schroeder’s mother said that her son had been missing all day. Michael’s twin brother had been searching for him and finally located him in George Washington Hospital.

Michael suffered a severe concussion along with a fractured skull. Staples had been used to close the head wounds. He also had difficulty speaking.

Schroeder told WUSA-9 that he remembered having drinks with some friends. Later they left to go home and that is all he can recall.

“I wasn’t trying to find trouble,” Schroeder said. “I was actually trying to walk home.”

The police report stated that Schroeder appeared to be very cold and highly intoxicated. He was also bleeding from a blow to the head.

When asked why someone would attack him, Schroeder said, “It’s hard for me to understand because there would’ve been zero reason for it. He said his cell phone had not been taken, but he was missing between $40 and $60.

According to police, the attack was not captured on surveillance cameras in the area.

The police also state that they do not believe that this attack was connected to the attack on Chris Marquez.

According to a report from CNBC, the storms consisted of at least 60 tornadoes and were responsible for the deaths of at least eight people.

CNBC also reported that over 238,000 homes from Virginia to Maine are without electricity.

This photo was posted by CNBC, showing people trying to clean up after the tornadoes.

In addition to the severe destruction of property, the storms also affected air travel. According to FlightAware, there were nearly 300 flight cancellations nationwide, with approximately 90 of them occurring at LaGuardia Airport in New York.

People took to social media to post photos of the damage and offer prayers and encouragement.

The Weather Channel reported that in Virginia, there were over 35,000 homes without electricity.

Timothy Williams was in the car with a friend when the tornado struck. Williams said, “It picked the car right off the ground and put it right back on the ground.” Fortunately, he and his friend were uninjured.

Marco Rubio’s Strategy For Tonight’s Debate Was Just Revealed, And It May Backfire BIG TIME

Thursday night’s Republican debate may prove crucial for Sen. Marco Rubio.

This will be the last debate before Super Tuesday primaries and his final opportunity to pull supporters away from front-runner Donald Trump.

According to an article by Politico’s Alex Isenstadt, Rubio will implement a new strategy in an effort to diminish Trump’s lead.

Instead of attacking Trump, he plans to attack Ted Cruz.

“Going after Trump would accomplish little because the businessman’s supporters are deeply committed and unlikely to swing Rubio’s way,” Isenstadt writes. “Inciting a confrontation with Trump onstage would create drama but wouldn’t help the senator gain voters, something he badly needs as he looks for his first primary win.”

Isenstadt said the Rubio campaign believes attacking Cruz is its best bet for attracting more voters. “They think the Texas senator’s voters are less locked in and could swing Rubio’s way should Cruz fade. The only way to dislodge Trump, Rubio’s advisers say, is to turn it into a two-man race — meaning that they first need to get Cruz out of the way.”

During the previous debates, the rhetoric between Rubio and Trump has not been aggressive. But if Trump decides to challenge Rubio, then the senator’s campaign had better be ready to respond to the challenge.

That’s particularly important in light of Rubio’s disasterous debate performance prior to the New Hampshire primary.

But Rubio’s campaign advisers believe the only way to lessen Trump’s lead is to eliminate the remaining candidates and create a two-man race between Trump and Rubio.

Should this strategy have the intended results, then Rubio would feel free to launch his attack on Trump.

Of course, there is always the chance Rubio’s strategy will backfire. But with Super Tuesday being so close, Rubio may not have any other choice.

Watch: ‘Black Lives Matter’ Protester Confronts Hillary At Fundraiser, Then Things Get Interesting…

Hillary Clinton held a $500 a plate private fund raiser Wednesday night in Charleston, S.C. The function was held in a private home and included approximately 100 guests.

There were several speakers at the event, speaking on Clinton’s civil rights record as well as the issue of racism in the country.

Also in attendance were Black Lives Matters activists, Ashley Williams and an associate.

After Clinton began her speech, Williams was seen holding a banner, referring to, what she perceived, as inconsistencies in Clinton’s record.

Williams was confronted by Clinton, at which point Williams requested an apology from Clinton for the support that she gave to the criminal justice reforms implemented by former President Clinton.

Williams claimed these reforms were responsible for the increase in the arrests of African-Americans.

The Secret Service quickly handled the interruption and removed Williams and her associate.

According to Williams, her main concerns are the three-strike program, abolishing rehabilitation programs for drug abusers and prison construction.

In an interview with Huffington Post, Williams said, “I wanted to bring her to confront her own words. We did this because we wanted to make sure that black people are paying attention to her record, and we want to know what Hillary we are getting.”

This is not the first time Clinton has had an event disrupted by protesters from the Black Lives Matters group. During an event in Atlanta, in October of last year, protesters were singing hymns and chanting, “Black lives matter.”

In an effort to ease the tensions, Clinton said, “Yes they do, and I’m going to talk a lot about that in a minute.”

Scalia’s Doctor Just Revealed Something Stunning That May Have Caused Early Death…

Despite the initial controversy around the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, the incident report issued by the Presidio County Sheriff’s Department stated there was nothing out of place around his bed.

Scalia’s head had been elevated by the use of pillows, possibly to assist in breathing. One pillow was covering his forehead and eyes; however, it did not appear to have obstructed his breathing.

The justice had breathing equipment near the bed, but it was not attached. The report also stated that the investigation could not find any signs of struggle.

Shortly after Scalia’s death, questions were raised concerning the way local and federal authorities handled the death.

Former D.C. head of criminal investigations, William O. Ritchie went on Facebook, where he said, “As a former homicide commander, I am stunned that no autopsy was ordered on Justice Scalia.”

In a letter released on Tuesday, Rear Admiral and Supreme Court doctor, Brian P. Monahan, stated Scalia had been dealing with several issues effecting his health.

He had been diagnosed with coronary artery disease in addition to diabetes and obesity. Scalia was also a smoker, who had high blood pressure and sleep apnea.

The letter asserted that Scalia’s “many significant medical conditions lead to his death.”

There were also questions concerning the fact that Presidio County Judge, Cinderela Guevara, pronounced Scalia dead of natural causes without actually seeing the body.

Guevera said that she based her declaration on the information she received from the law enforcement officials on the scene, which is permitted by Texas law.

Justice Scalia was 79 years old when he passed away on Feb. 13.
