    The man accused of using a high-powered rifle to try to assassinate President Obama has been found mentally competent to face the charges against him. But prosecutors aren't taking any chances. Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez, 21, of Idaho is accused of parking his car outside the White House on the evening of Nov. 11 and taking aim with an assault rifle. He fired up to nine shots, including one that struck a window of the Obamas' living quarters. That bullet was halted by security glass. The president was never in any danger. He and the first lady were in California at...

    Accused White House shooter Oscar Ortega Hernández recorded a TV pitch to Oprah Winfrey two months ago in which he declared himself to be "the modern day Jesus Christ." Who is Oscar Ortega Hernández? The 21-year-old asked an Idaho State University student to tape the segment.

It's not just a coincidence that I look like Jesus. I am the modern day Jesus Christ that you all have been waiting for," he...
  • 'Occupy San Diego' Honors Suspected White House Shooter with Moment of Silence

    During the height of the Tea Party protests, the liberal media sought to hype any hint that the movement may turn violent against Democrats in general and President Obama in particular. For example, Hardball's Chris Matthews famously blew up in August 2009 at a libertarian protester who legally carried a gun to a presidential townhall meeting in New Hampshire, suggesting it was wildly inappropriate "given the violent history of this country with regard to presidents and assassinations." So it should be interesting to see what attention, if any, the mainstream media pays to Occupy San Diego honoring suspected White House...

    A local man contacted us Wednesday to tell his side of a bizarre meeting he had in early July with suspected White House shooter Oscar Ortega-Hernandez. We canvassed two different neighborhoods connected to Ortega through an extensive background check we ran Wednesday. We knocked, but no one answered. Computer consultant Monte McCall called us after seeing Ortega-Hernandez's picture. "As soon as I clicked on the story on my iPad there was this picture and i was like 'uh oh,'" said McCall. McCall said the picture was Ortega-Hernandez, the same man who contacted him in July and asked to meet. McCall...
