DALLAS POLICE SHOOTING – BLACK LIVES MATTER NB Video Rant

NB Commentary: Sometimes you just have to step in there and say your piece in the face of total ignorance coming from folks who set themselves up as being one who is in the know.  I watched this video up until the 1:02:30 mark when he and his guest took a serious turn for the worse in reporting on this Dallas thing and in particular, reporting on what they perceive is “up” with the inclusion of Micah X Jackson in this scenario.

You can watch the video from this point to see what I am ranting about. This dude took me all the way back to my college years when I had to straighten some folks out about the “Black Experience.” Most white folks don’t have a clue… and in 2016… it don’t make no sense.  My comments are listed below the video.

After reading my complaint about their video, they left this message and removed the video.“New World Agenda commented on a video on YouTube. Shared publicly – Yesterday 1:11 AM 2016-07-24 I’m sorry Nana. Never would I want to offend people (or get things wrong). I pulled the podcast. It would be best to have someone of your knowledge and experience to be on the show to give us the much needed information. We try our best… sometimes it’s difficult to interpret what is going on in the black communities. Thanks for taking the time to explain. All the best!”

Okay, I listened to your pod-cast up until you got to 1:02:30 Mark when you started to talk about the New Black Panthers.

Here is where I have to say your journalism took a nose dive.
You clearly have no idea what the differences are between a Black Muslim, a Black Panther,  a member of the New Black Panther Party,  a member of the Black Lives Matter Movement or even what Professor Griff stands for.

Just like you cannot bundle all white supremacists activists groups or patriots into the same pile, you cannot put all of these and many other groups into the same pile either.
I suggest you find another source of inquiry besides Wikipedia which has been known to report false information.. sometimes reporting events as soon as they happen with full details. Where do they get their details from if not from some insider?
One of the things that is very, very annoying about white guys like you and your guest is that you appear to be intelligent but you have no clue about what you are talking about when it comes to Black folks and their issues.
For one thing, many African Americans use the red, black and green colors and most of the individuals who use them are NOT militant or part of a break away society. In fact, Muammar Qaddafi used the same image.

 FYI Red = Blood, Black = color, and Green = land. It is a symbol of solidarity among African Americans who identify with their contribution and heritage in this country and around the world. In fact, you will see these colors in many African flags, just like you see red, white and blue in a lot of European flags.
Also, the fist of power is a symbol of solidarity. It means united we are powerful, it means unity, it does not mean any of the BS you two are talking about.
The outfit he has on is called a “dashiki” and it DOES NOT AND IS NOT  worn by the Black Panthers or the New Black Panther Members. It is worn by folks who wish to identify with their African heritage along with other African print garments, Again your ignorance is glaring!
You are clearly uninformed and maybe you should get your facts straight before you steer your listeners down the wrong path.
I find it quite hypocritical for  you to mock the young woman because she did not eloquently express herself like a Malcolm X when you have someone like Bush for the president of the United states who barely made it out of high school. I don’t know how you feel about Bush, but your comments and mockery is the stuff of disdain and are reprehensible in this type of journalism, unless you are going to line up with the other troll Youtube channels. What side of the New World Order Agenda are you??
I do know about the difference and if you want to know more, than you should discuss this with someone who does know the difference.
Your comments is why Black folks cringe at your attempts to speak about us when you are so unenlightened about who we are, how we feel and what we need to be a part of this country.
Maybe your ancestors mocked the so-called founding fathers who had the same desire to have their own land and be out from under the hand of tyranny as many Africans in this country have faced for 400 years. You all got your freedom, right??
In conclusion, if you are about making change in this world, and steering away from the ridiculous psyops that are being played on the American people of all ethnicities, please do your homework before you speak. Otherwise, you will sound ignorant, and it’s the ignorance of white folks like yourself, that make it hard for Black folks to see any advantage of aligning themselves with you or accepting what you have to say as viable and worth taking seriously.
No, I am not a part of any of those movements, and most African Americans are not, but for you to lump them all together without a single idea about any of them based on a RBG flag; his attire and the “fist of Power” is highly insulting and misleading. I suggest you erase the entire part, because you obviously do not know what you are talking about.
Let me also add, that I find it interesting that you are quite comfortable with this man, this black man or any Black Man, joining the US military,  going to another country and killing people who did nothing to him. These same black men come home to fewer rights and freedoms that the US military is supposedly trying to make sure others have. I did not hear you mock the insanity of that notion, but seem to appreciate the fact that he was in the military.. yeah, he fought for “his” country? But when that same man finds out that his country will not fight for him, and like you white folks, who feel the same way, somehow there is a difference and now the request for equal rights and human rights for black folks, no matter how they are expressed is laughable to you.

Let me tell you something, dear Mr. White Man, ain’t nothing funny about when you’re coming home from your US military duty; with PTSD and have to face the stark reality that you may be shot and/or killed by a Police officer on a city street because you are a Black Man in America!

Was Orlando Shooting A False Flag?

Was Orlando Shooting a False Flag?

Shooter Has Ties To FBI, Regular At Club, Did Not Act Alone?

NB Commentary: It is truly unfortunate and very, very sad that these events are happening with such frequency. People are losing their lives and folks are mourning their dead relatives and friends. My condolences go out to anyone who is mourning a loss of a love one due to this tragedy. Iba Ye.

One of the things that sticks out in my mind is the total silence by mainstream of the US and its allies complicity in creating these so-called terrorists, here and abroad. ISIS, Al-Qaeda are all products of the US. It is unbelievable to me that the PTB would think there would be no proverbial “blowback” for their hegemony around the world.

Statements made by high officials like “Bomb them back to the stone age” are grievance and narcissistic rants that seem to carry no concept of the consequence as far as these war mongers are concerned. It could be stated that since they are not on the front lines, or behind the monitors where the drones are launched, they don’t see the carnage and therefore are exempt from empathy? Or are they simply psychopaths?

But, on the other hand the moment something happens here, in the US, we get superlatives like, “deadliest mass murder in U.S. history” which is patently false. We look at how these mouth pieces can parrot this narrative ad nauseum yet pay no attention to the pain, sorrow and grief that is happening in their name overseas.

This disconnect is not simply a matter of cognitive dissonance it’s criminal.

The fear and saber rattling cry of “they are gonna take our guns” is so laughable at this point, especially since it has been shown over and over again, that immediately after the drum beat starts for taking folks guns, which has happened after all of these “events”, real, contrived, or a combination of both; folks go out and buy more guns. It makes you wonder if the gun manufacturers are staging these events to boost their gun sales.

Why are Americans so obsessed with guns?
http://www.bbc.co.uk/guides/z3t2hv4

(Spoiler Alert – Snarky Comment Follows)
Two things, agenda of American exceptionalism. & Gun control, which only means keeping it away from the law abiding…. criminals get guns and continue to get guns… all they gotta do is join ISIS and they will have plenty of guns, women and drugs and oil, just saying. I always say, what kind of policy takes guns from Americans and gives them to the so called “rebels’ in foreign lands. DON’T ANSWER THAT, ask Killery instead.

They are trying to tie him into Islamic extremist and the other guy who killed that singer, Christina Grimmie, is just a whack job. They also said he had to be well trained to kill that many people at one time. Who trained him?  Now, false flags have real casualties. Not that they didn’t in the past, but they are doing it for real this time. Like Oswald said, “I’m just a patsy.”

What concerns me most is the short sightedness that comes over the masses when an event such as what happened in Orlando hits the world stage. It’s as if each event cause a sort of amnesia and folks forget every single thing that preceded it. How is that possible when they exact same protocols are used over and over again? Of course, the shock and awe effect of these events could certainly knock even the most centered individual off their square, but when the events carry the same exact scenario it would seem to trigger some cognition or replay of past events in the minds of the masses.

I felt that something was going to occur. I had just finished some work on my computer and was preparing to retire when a familiar dizzy feeling came over me along with a vibration in my ears. I spoke outloud to myself, what’s gonna happen now. Interestingly enough, I didn’t hear about this event for at least 24 hours later. The feeling hasn’t left me and I am not sure if it is because of the mourning and disbelief, or if something else will happen in the not too distant future. I don’t make predictions, there are too many variables that can change things, but I do pay attention to my body as it responds to the change of frequency in our environment.

We must also be aware that all of this is part of a larger plan of social engineering and distraction and innumerable other scenarios that are going on in our world today. It can’t be ignored that death has been the running theme for 2016 thus far. The masses tend to pay more attention when the individual who makes transition is a “celebrity” but what folks sometimes miss, is the bigger the individual the larger the loss, and more follow. My Mom used to say, death comes in threes, but it seems it must be multiples upon multiples of threes at the rate things are going.

And then there’s the kevlar helmet.

I feel a deep sense of sadness for those who have lost their loved ones in this horrendous act. It is appalling that an agenda would be initiated irrespective of the victims and their families. We live in a very distressful time and while folks are talking about the stock market, celebrity deaths, chemtrails, GMO’s, trans-humanism, media propaganda, Illuminati, the value of money, the political charade….. What is most important, “the sanctity of life on this planet,” has taken a seat way in the back.  These theatrics are covering our planet with the energy of suffering, pain, injustice, sadness and a word I seldom use “evil”. When human beings can be a party to the destruction of the planet they live on and the life forms that inhabit it, can we call them anything else but evil?

Was Orlando Shooting A False Flag? Shooter Has Ties To FBI, Regular At Club, Did Not Act Alone?

As mainstream media organizations continue to be afire with reports regarding the recent Orlando shooting, a number of details are escaping the public consciousness that might point to an even more sinister motivation for the killing of 50 innocent people at the Pulse nightclub. Most notably, that the attack could very well have been orchestrated by the FBI and other relevant U.S. intelligence agencies in order to guide public opinion, galvanize the American people, and for other “political” purposes.

Indeed, in my article 5 Reasons To Question The Official Story Of The Orlando Shooting,” I listed a number of questionable aspects regarding the shooting such as the fact that the FBI was well aware of Omar Mateen, his ideology, and his potential violence years before the attack yet did nothing, as well as the fact that this father is a Taliban-supporting TV host from Afghanistan. I also pointed out that Mateen himself had connections to a known ISIS recruiter and suicide bomber. In addition, I discussed the FBI’s history in relation to creating terrorist attacks in order to “bust” them and subsequently take the credit for stopping terrorist attacks.
FBI Foreknowledge, ISIS Sympathies, Taliban Ties
What may at first sound like an instance of senseless violence brings with it a number of other questions. For instance, the FBI was already well aware of Mateen and his connections to radical jihad and terrorism. According to CNN’s article, 50 Killed in Florida Nightclub, Shooter Pledged ISIS Allegiance,” two officials tell CNN that the FBI had investigated Mateen at some point for possibly having ties to or sympathizing with Islamic extremism. A law enforcement official said there were two cases opened involving Mateen but the probes didn’t result in enough evidence to charge him with anything.
The investigations were reported by a number of mainstream media organizations and later confirmed by the FBI itself during a press conference. The FBI admitted that Mateen had been interviewed by agents twice in 2013 due to comments made about radical jihad which were overheard by coworkers. He was interviewed for a third time one year later due to his connection to Moner Mohammad Abu Salha, an American who had traveled from Florida to train in Syria and later to return to the United States in order to recruit other Americans to fight in the Western-backed terrorist brigades attempting to overthrow secular and legitimate government, Bashar Al Assad.
Salha allegedly returned to Syria and blew himself up in a suicide bombing. It is also interesting to note that Mateen’s father Seddique Mateen is a political personality in his own right having hosted a TV show and apparently declared himself a presidential candidate  for Afghanistan. Seddique has denounced the Pakistani government and expressed support and encouragement for the Taliban movement.

Still, the question regarding the fact that Mateen was on the FBI’s radar is extremely important. One key aspect suggesting a false flag that should be looked for soon after the attack is any possible connection the suspect or group of suspects may have had with intelligence agencies. A connection to any one of these organizations and institutions may go some length in explaining how the attack was coordinated, the motivation of the perpetrators, the actual involvement (or not) of the suspects, and who actually directed the operation. For instance, on 9/11, many of the alleged hijackers had previously had close contact with the FBI, CIA, and other high-level intelligence agencies (both home and abroad). Likewise, the Tsarnaev brothers who have been accused of masterminding and carrying out the Boston Bombing  had ties to the FBI before the attack..
In many instances, connections to certain military agencies and communities should serve as the same red flag as connections to intelligence agencies since these institutions have largely been blended together.
The Presence Of FBI “Informants”
The FBI did much more than simply “investigate” Mateen – they introduced him to “informants” as well. According to the New York Daily News in the article, “FBI spied on Orlando gay club terrorist Omar Mateen for 10 months in 2013: FBI Director James Comey,”

Mateen first appeared on authorities’ radar in 2013 after the security guard’s colleagues alerted the FBI spied on Orlando gay club terrorist Omar Mateen for 10 months in 2013: FBI Director James Comey,”
Mateen also told coworkers he had a family member who belonged to Hezbollah, a Shia network that is a bitter enemy of ISIS — the network he pledged allegiance to the night of the carnage, Comey noted.
The FBI’s Miami office opened an inquiry into Mateen.
“He said he hoped that law enforcement would raid his apartment and assault his wife and child so he could martyr himself,” Comey said.
Nevertheless, FBI investigators investigated Mateen, who was born in New York, for 10 months. They introduced him to confidential informants, spied on his communications and followed him. They also interviewed him twice.

Connections To Known Terrorists, FBI Informants, CIA Assets
Mateen was not only connected to Mohammed Abu Salha, he also maintained ties with Marcus Dwayne Robertson, a notoriously violent radical Muslim/CIA Asset.

Robertson, who is also known as Abu Taubah to his thousands of followers, converted at least 36 people to his version of Islam while he was imprisoned for four years in jail.
Early Sunday authorities brought Robertson, who was living in Florida, along with several other associates in for questioning.
According to Fox News, a law enforcement source said: ‘It is no coincidence that this happened in Orlando. Mateen was enrolled in (Robertson’s online) Fundamental Islamic Knowledge Seminary.’
Police believe that Robertson’s Timbuktu Seminary is used to dispense his radical teachings, sources told Fox News.
Robertson, who was a former US Marine and undercover FBI agent before turning into a radical Imam, was released from prison last year despite warning from officials and prosecutors that he would recruit people to carry out horrendous acts of violence.
He was considered so dangerous that he was kept shackled with his own security detail away from other inmates.
Whenever he was transported to court, authorities had a seven-car caravan of armed federal marshals escort him.
He was eventually moved to solitary confinement after prison officials discovered that he was trying to radicalize his fellow inmates.
After serving as a Marine for six years, Robertson, 47, went on to become a bank robber, before turning FBI informant after his arrest in exchange for a short prison sentence.
He was dismissed by the FBI in 2007 after allegedly attacking his CIA handler, and then began preaching Islamic extremism.
He was thrown in jail for tax fraud back in 2011, prosecutors attempted to have ten years added to his sentence last year after discovering documents preaching terror among his possessions. However, a judge released him.
Robertson has openly preached against homosexuality, as wiretaps from 2011 proved that he instructed one of his students to file fake tax returns to get a refund to pay for travel to Mauritania for terror training.
According to Fox News, federal law enforcement officials have been familiar with Robertson since as early as 1991.
Robertson became the leader of a New York gang known as ‘Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves’ and robbed more than 10 banks, private homes and post offices at gunpoint.
They shot three police officers and also attacked an officer after he suffered injuries from a homemade pipe bomb.
In that same period, authorities claimed that Robertson, who was known as ‘Ali Baba,’ also ‘served as a bodyguard to Omar Abdel Rahman, who led the terrorist group that carried out the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center,’ Fox News reported.
When he was arrested in 1991 he cut a deal with prosecutors who let him serve four years in prison before he went to work undercover for the FBI in 2004 to document terrorists’ plans in Africa and the United States.

Thus, the best efforts of the FBI, CIA, and their media mouthpieces are to attempt to convince readers that Robertson was a legitimate radical Muslim (aside from his ties to the U.S. military, FBI, and CIA) but that he was simply too much of a loose cannon to be used as an informant and was therefore cut loose from the program. This claim would actually mean two things: First, Robertson may have been a loose cannon but he was still willing to work as an informant. Secondly, despite his being known as a radical jihadist with a notorious criminal history, he was released from prison on numerous occasions having served less time than many with simple drug offenses to their names. In reality, however, the story purporting to show Robertson as a legitimate terrorist are most cover for what was and still is a CIA/FBI asset.
It should also be noted that Robertson was known to have acted as the bodyguard for Omar Abdel Rahman, the alleged leader of the terrorist group that carried out the World Trade Center bombing in 1993, another “sting” operation that resulted in a terrorist attack going live.
The FBI History Of Creating Terrorist Attacks
For some time Tony Cartalucci of Land Destroyerhas been painstakingly
documenting instances of the FBI organized, arming, funding, and directing domestic terror attacks only to foil those attacks later and claim success in preventing terror attacks on American soil as well as the possibility that many of these attacks simply do not get foiled but are allowed to take place for political purposes.
For instance, in his article CONFIRMED: FBI Introduced Florida Shooter To ‘Informants,’” Cartalucci provides an excellent overview of the FBI’s history of creating terror attacks that can be “foiled” later or even allowed to go live. Cartalucci writes,

Among the activities these informants carry out includes providing and training suspects in the use of real explosives, providing suspects with arsenals of weapons precisely like those used in the recent shooting in Orlando Florida, and encouraging suspects to adopt “radical ideology” over the course of the investigation. Suspects are given the false impression that they are working on behalf of terrorist organizations like Al Qaeda or the self-proclaimed “Islamic State,” often cultivating delusions of grandeur among otherwise mentally ill suspects.
The Intercept in its recent article, Before Nightclub Shooting, FBI Pursued Questionable Florida “Terror” Suspects,”would note that the FBI’s Miami office who investigated Mateen, has been “among the bureau’s most active and aggressive counterterrorism units.”
It would also report on the specifics of this unit’s activities:
For more than a year ending in April — a time during which investigators will now be looking for any clues from Mateen that might have been missed — the FBI in Miami focused on a counterterrorism sting that targeted James Medina, a homeless man with mental problems.
The Intercept would reveal that the FBI informant, not Medina, came up with the idea of crediting the planned attack to the “Islamic State.” In fact, upon reading the FBI’s affidavit (.pdf), it is clear the FBI’s informant encouraged and walked Medina through every aspect of the planned attack, including providing him with what he thought was an explosive device.
Upon reading Medina’s incoherent conversations with various FBI informants, it is clear he possessed neither the mental or technical capacity on his own to perpetrate the attacks he was arrested for.
The Intercept would continue:
Nearly a year before Medina’s arrest, the FBI’s Miami office arrested another supposed terrorist, 23-year-old Cuban-American Harlem Suarez, also known as Almlak Benitez, whom former co-workers described as “a little slow.” The government alleged that Suarez conspired with an FBI informant to bomb a beach in Key West in support of the Islamic State. The FBI provided a fake backpack bomb.
Finally, the Intercept would reveal:
The Orlando shooting isn’t the first case to raise this question. In 2011, when the FBI investigated Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, agents did not deem him a threat.
Instead, at about the same time, the Boston FBI started a nine-month sting operation against Rezwan Ferdaus, who had no weapons and no connections to international terrorists, and whose mental wellness had deteriorated so much that he was wearing adult diapers at the time of his arrest on terrorism charges.
Rezwan Ferdaus, like Medina, was provided assistance by the FBI every step of the way, including being provided 24 lbs of C4 explosives, 6 fully automatic AK47 rifles, and 3 grenades –  the FBI’s own affidavit reveals (.pdf) He was brought deep into a fictional world where he believed he was working directly with Al Qaeda for nearly a year – told that “detonation devices” he constructed and passed on to FBI informants were “used” in Iraq to “kill” American soldiers.
The FBI’s informants conduct similar practices in virtually all of their investigations.
In 2010, the FBI investigated naturalized US citizen and Oregon resident Mohamed Osman Mohamud. In their own official statement titled, Oregon Resident Arrested in Plot to Bomb Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Portland,” released by the U.S. Attorney’s Office on November 26, 2010 it was stated :
According to the affidavit, on November 4, 2010, Mohamud and the undercover FBI operatives traveled to a remote location in Lincoln County, Ore., where they detonated a bomb concealed in a backpack as a trial run for the upcoming attack.
The FBI in February 2012 provided another suspect with live explosives in the lead up to what was ultimately a foiled suicide bombing planned with the help of FBI informants at the US Capitol.
USA Today reported in their article, FBI foils alleged suicide bomb attack on U.S. Capitol,” that :
According to a counterterrorism official, El Khalifi “expressed interest in killing at least 30 people and considered targeting a building in Alexandria and a restaurant, synagogue and a place where military personnel gather in Washington before he settled on the Capitol after canvassing that area a couple of times,” the Associated Press writes. During the year-long investigation, El Khalifi detonated explosives at a quarry in the capital region with undercover operatives. He is not believed to be affiliated with al-Qaeda, officials said.
Considering the disturbing activities conducted by FBI informants during these “investigations,” the FBI appears obligated to tell the American public just what their “informants” were doing with Florida shooting suspect Omar Mateen in the 10 months they were “investigating” him beginning in 2013.
Did they also walk Mateen through planned attacks he ultimately backed out of? Did he eventually change his mind again after the FBI’s investigation was allegedly closed?
The American media and US elected representatives have an obligation to ask these questions, obtain this information from the FBI, and to reevaluate the FBI’s means and methods of investigating potential suspects through what is clearly a dangerous process of entrapment, indoctrination, and deceit.

Was Mateen Being Handled By The FBI?
In addition to the “investigations” being conducted by the FBI into Mateen’s conduct, there is the very real possibility that Mateen himself was being handled and/or lulled into radical jihad, culminating in the very attack that took place in Orlando.
One piece of information that would lend credence to this hypothesis comes from a New York Daily News report that claims Mateen was actually a regular at the Pulse bar. According to the New York Daily News report, Orlando Shooter Was Regular At Pulse Gay Club; Former Classmate Says Omar Mateen Was Homosexual,”

The homophobic maniac who murdered 49 people inside Orlando’s gay-friendly nightclub Pulse Sunday morning had been hanging out there for three years and chatted with men via online dating services like Grindr, said multiple witnesses who claimed to have firsthand knowledge of Mateen’s habits.
. . . . .
Mateen, who had married again, this time to Noor Salman who bore him a son, also visited Pulse several times over the past three years, according to club patrons.
One couple, who work together as drag-dancing performers, said they’d seen Mateen as many as a dozen times at Pulse.
Ty Smith and Chris Callen also said they’d seen him escorted drunk from the club more than once.
. . . . .
“I’ve seen him a couple of times at Pulse, a couple of other people that I’ve spoken with, including an-ex security guard, have actually witnessed this guy at Pulse many times before,” said Callen, who performs as Kristina McLauglin.
“One friend was a security guard there two years ago and she remembers him,” Callen told the Daily News.
He estimates Mateen began showing up about three years ago. Everybody was blown away to realize he was the man responsible for the slaughter.
“It’s shocking to everyone because we saw him there before,” said Callen.
He said one night Mateen got angry about a religious joke and pulled a knife on a friend. But it was nothing the friend couldn’t handle, Callen said.
The performer recalled his first words with Mateen three years ago.
“He was a nice guy,” he said of the shooter. “He was at the bar. He was actually talking with another guy. I turned around. I was in drag. I said hello. He seemed comfortable,” Callen said.
“As I was onstage he was standing next to somebody, having a conversation, having a good time close to the stage. Later on that night … he was out there dancing with another guy. It could be he just went crazy. Maybe he got radicalized and hated who he was,” Callen said.

Interestingly enough, if Mateen began frequenting Pulse around three years ago (2013) that would put his first foray into being a regular at the club around the same time as his first “investigation” at the hands of the FBI.
Was Mateen blackmailed into terror for his sexuality? Was he recruited, radicalized, and facilitated by U.S. intelligence and his regular visits to Pulse merely an act of casing the joint? Did he think he was part of a drill? Did he believe he was really fighting jihad?
It has been admitted that Mateen was “introduced to informants” around this time. So what did they tell him? What did they do with him? The answers to these questions will likely never be known but what is known is that the FBI keeps records of these types of things, so the organization has some serious explaining to do regardless.
More Than One Shooter
Despite mainstream news organizations’ attempts to minimize victims’ reports of more than one perpetrator in the Orlando shooting, authorities are now being forced to acknowledge the possibility that Mateen did not act alone. According to WSB-TV in Atlanta,

Channel 2’s sister station in Orlando, WFTV, is reporting that they expect an arrest in  connection to the Orlando nightclub shooting that left 50 dead, including the shooter.
A top law enforcement source told WFTV an arrest, elsewhere in Florida, is expected of an alleged accomplice.

Janiel Gonzalez, who was in the club on the night of the shooting, seems to think there must have been more than one perpetrator. In an interview with the Palm Beach Post, he recounted a second man holding the door shut and keeping everyone inside. Interestingly enough, it was on the side of the club that the shooter virtually ignored during his rampage. As Palm Beach Post reports,

“I remember telling myself, ‘This is not how I die,’’’ Gonzalez, 26, said.
“When I dropped to the floor and saw people crying and covered in blood. The scent of the ammunition and bullets, I was like ‘This is real life. This is happening right now.’”
He said he never saw the gunman, who was in an adjacent room about 20 feet away. He said he thought the initial burst of gunfire lasted eight or nine minutes.
“He kept on shooting and shooting and shooting, rapid fire,’’ Gonzalez said, “and he’d change (clips), put in more ammunition — bud-dudda. I could smell the ammo in the air.’’
He said he heard another gun from a different direction, so he wonders if there were two gunmen.
“Everybody dropped to the floor. We were trying to look for an exit. But the main exit was right next to the entrance where the shooter was shooting,’’ he said.
“In a moment of desperation we were all crawling on the floor trying to find a place to exit. I looked to my right and I could see people going through some curtains. We were digging through the curtains and found a door.’’
But he said the door was blocked by a man. He wasn’t sure if it was a club security person or an accomplice to the gunmen.
“Fifty people were trying to jump over each other trying to exit the place. There was a guy holding the door and not letting us exit. He’s like ‘Stay inside, stay inside.’ As he is saying that, the shooter keeps getting closer and closer and the sound of the bullets is getting closer. Everyone starts to panic. People are getting trampled. Let us out, let us out!’’’
Gonzalez’ first thought was that it was a hate crime. “This guy is trying to prevent us from leaving. Maybe they’re working together,’’ he said.
Gonzalez said he feel lucky because he hung out on the left side of the club, while the gunman concentrated fire on the right side.
“When you enter the club, there’s a right wing and a left wing. The shooter entered and went straight to the right. He never came to the left (side), which is the hiphop room where the majority of my friends were. Everybody in the right (wing) room got injured.’’
“I’m pretty sure it was more than one person. I heard two guns going at the same time. It was very, very crazy.’’

The Security Firm
Despite all of the “investigations” into Mateen’s ideology and his connections with known terrorists, he was still able to gain not only a gun (the point of focus by the anti-gun left) but a security clearance as part of his job. But the most interesting aspect of Mateen’s employmentwas that he worked for G4S Secure Solutions, one of the largest security firms in the United States and formerly known as Wackenhut. The company is  notorious for its connections to the FBI, CIA, military industrial complex, and the “shadow government” apparatus itself.
Not only does Wackenhut/G4S boast of a board that reads like a list of some of the most powerful intelligence players in the country, but it has been closely involved in surveillance, espionage, and innumerable clandestine operations. The organization essentially has a revolving door with the CIA and functions as just another wing of the intelligence community.
Conclusion
While the right-wing media blames Muslims and the left-wing media blame guns, perhaps it would be more effective if thinking individuals would examine the possibilities that this attack was a false flag incident designed to push an agenda that would benefit those in power in some way or other. Out of this attack we will no doubt see another push for the evisceration of the Second Amendment and other civil liberties as well as increased hype regarding ISIS as a threat to the American way of life and a greater attempt at justification for foreign adventures.
While the information presented above may not be enough evidence to prove in the court of law that the Orlando attack was a false flag attack, it is, without a doubt, reason enough to question the official story thus far and is highly suggestive of the possibility that the largest mass shooting in U.S. history was indeed a false flag attack engineered and directed by elements in the U.S. government intelligence community.
If the attack is attributed to a lone jihadist nut the FBI has some serious explaining to do since it appears that the agency itself is the greatest initiator of terrorist activity inside American borders and is either the most incompetent anti-terror fighter in the U.S. or it is complicit in the attacks that continue to take place.

Unbelievable: Media Allowed To Ransack Crime Scene At San Bernardino Shooters’ Apartment

NB Commentary

I have been hesitant to be drawn into this alleged crime/false flag/hoax for the past few days as I do believe that  a crime certainly had been committed and possibly several crimes to be sure but then the information came across my desk and this video is so compelling I had to share it and comment.
7 Things I learned today.
  1. The suspects were handcuffed and drug out of the back of the SUV. Now how is that possible if they were supposedly shooting at the police while driving. See video report with family’s lawyer who made this startling statement.
  2. The video of the company party was taken the night before, yet the MSM broadcast it as if it was the company party that got stormed the day of the Event.
  3. The woman was photographed lying on the ground dressed in a short skirt and not full body armor.
  4. The number of suspects went down from 3 men to 2 people, a woman and a man but how is it that they could not tell that one of the attackers was a woman?
  5. There were two possibly 3 crime scenes
  6. The word “revenue” on the woman’s official ID card was misspelled. Now they changed her name when they realized that the name they were using wasn’t a typical Arabic name for a female, and some even quible about how “Farook” is spelled, citing that the a”Q” should have been used if it were authentic. But the misspelled word is more damning, as I do know folks who will spell their name differently just to keep the confusion down to a minimum. See here.
  7. And then there’s Melissa’s video and that is what took me to the point of writing my commentary. 
The Alleged Female Assailant
Her Alleged Work ID card
I am not quite sure why there have been so many mass shootings during Obama’s Presidency. I do know that it is certainly giving me a headache and making me very, very sad.

Some say it’s gun control, but like I cited in my other blog, he is really the biggest gun salesman of all time, cause as soon as he threatens more control, folks run out and buy more guns. I am not too sure how that is going to keep guns out of the hands of the masses, particularly when they are even more scared than they were yesterday. Add a few terrorist into the mix and you have a recipe for disaster.

I do believe however, that it is a smoke screen to cover up the debacle that the Middle East has become for NATO and its most powerful military force, the USA. I am not cheering Putin for his aggression in Syria, while I do understand the geopolitical nature of his involvement, but I always think about the people on the ground, something that most people seem to forget. The want Putin to tear it up over there and get it over with. Meanwhile, more and more refugees will be fleeing Syria for surely Russia’s tactical team is precise. Now they are paying Turkey and some African countries to keep them in their borders.
I have seen what refugee camps look like, and if there is any hope that the money that will be doled out to maintain will be used to improve their lives, I personally think is a huge stretch of the imagination. But at least the European countries won’t have to worry about the refugees coming into their borders, to hell with what happens to them after that.
THE STORY
Unbelievable: Media Allowed To Ransack Crime Scene At San Bernardino Shooters’ Apartment
DECEMBER 5, 2015
Just in case you weren’t sure, the dog is definitely being wagged in San Bernardino. How do you know something is fake? A reporter stages a baby crib at the crime scene. When you hear someone say it’s unbelievable, sometimes it’s because it literally cannot be believed.

    Sometimes, I have to sit and wonder, what is the message they are trying to give Obama? For some reason all these breeches of security seem to be sending a deeper message.

I’m not counting but it surely does seem like more than I have ever seen before.
    It’s purely conjecture on my part but it certainly seems strange to have all of these killings and mass murders and disruptions and breeches of security during the Obama Administration.
    At Least 14 Dead in California Shooting, One Suspect Killed
    by CORKY SIEMASZKO, PETE WILLIAMS and M. ALEX JOHNSON
    At least 14 people were killed and a suspect was dead Wednesday after up to three gunmen on a “mission” barged into a holiday party in a California conference room and unleashed a bloodbath, law enforcement sources told NBC News.
    The gunman or gunmen fled in a black SUV after the shooting about at 11 a.m. (2 p.m. ET), police said.
    About 4½ hours later, multiple police cars were involved in a high-speed chase nearby with three people in a dark truck or SUV, law enforcement sources told NBC News. Two of the suspects were shot, the sources said – one was killed, and the other was unresponsive after having been wounded in the chest.
     One suspect killed, one in custody in CA 2:39
    The location of the third person wasn’t immediately clear, but San Bernardino police Sgt. Vicki Cervantes said a third subject was believed to be “outstanding.” NBC Los Angeles broadcast video of officers ringing a black vehicle after the shootout.
    In addition to the 14 dead:
  1. At least 10 of 17 wounded are in critical condition.
  2. Police arrested at least one suspect after shootout hours later.
  3. The shooting erupted during a holiday party in a conference room.
  4. Federal agencies are assisting the investigation.
  5. Cervantes said that one officer was shot in the confrontation but didn’t suffer a life-threatening wound and that one suspect possibly remained at large.
    Seventeen other people were wounded when the shooting started inside the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, about 55 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, police said.
    Authorities said 10 of the 17 injured were taken to hospitals in critical condition. Fire Chief Tom Hannemann said three people were in serious condition.
    It appeared to be the worst mass shooting since the December 2012 slaughter of 20 first-graders and six staffers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
    “These people came prepared to do what they did as if they were on a mission,” San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said. “They were armed with long guns, not with handguns.”
    Burguan added, “The suspects have fled.”
    “We don’t yet have a motive,” the chief said, adding that the getaway vehicle was a black SUV of some kind.
    Burguan warned that the death toll could climb as investigators continued to search the building. “This is a tragedy,” he said.

    Breaking: mass shooting, San Bernardino, plus “training exercise”
    by Jon Rappoport
    December 2, 2015
    (To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)
    KTLA reports—here’s a key quote:
    “The call first came in at 10:59 a.m. of multiple shots fired from the area of 1365 S. Waterman Ave., San Bernardino Police Department Lt. Richard Lawhead said. The department’s SWAT team was training nearby and was suited, ‘ready to roll’ and responded rapidly, Lawhead said.”
    —Yet another mass shooting where, by chance, a training exercise was going on during or prior to the event.
    San Bernardino, east of Los Angeles.  Reports state several shooters in a cluster of three office buildings that employ 600 people, 20 victims down, and shooters apparently at large.
    Here is a recent article I wrote about mass shootings paralleling training exercises:
    by PHIL HELSEL
     Watch Live: NBC Special Report on Shootings in San Bernardino, California.
    President Barack Obama called for stricter firearms laws as after a mass shootingin California that left at least 14 people dead, calling the spate of gun violence in the U.S. “unparalleled” to other countries.
    Obama spoke with CBS News Wednesday as the shooting at a center that serves the developmentally disabled in San Bernardino was still unfolding, and cautioned that much was still unknown.
    “It does appear that there are going to be some casualties, and obviously our hearts go out to the victims and the families,” Obama said.
    “The one thing we do know is that we have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world,” Obama said. “And there are some steps that we could take — not to eliminate every one of these mass shootings — but to improve the odds that they don’t happen as frequently.”

Consciousness and Symbols

Consciousness and Symbols

            The murders in Charleston South Carolina have ripped the scab of US history off and laid bare the festering sores and oozing puss of the consciousness and psychopathology of white supremacy for the entire world to see. That dastardly act exposed the real America. With that act one of the symbols of white supremacy, the Confederate battle flag that flies over the capital of South Carolina has come under increased scrutiny. The rebel flag has long been a bone of contention and conflict between Africans in America and whites. For Black people, the flag represents one aspect of racial oppression, slavery, terrorism, murder and injustice. I say one aspect because on many occasions US terrorists like the Klu Klux Klan and White Citizens Councils also used the American flag as their rallying symbol!
            From an accurate historical perspective, the Confederate battle flag is not the flag flown by the original Confederate States of America, the first seven states that separated from the Union: South Carolina (the first state to secede), Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Louisiana and Georgia.  Later, North Carolina, Arkansas, Tennessee and Virginia withdrew from the Union and joined the Confederacy.
  The Confederacy had several flags during its brief existence. The flag known as the rebel flag or the Confederate battle flag was not one of the series of Confederate flags adopted by the Confederate States of America. That battle flag was originally the flag of General Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia!
            The rebel flag that flies over the South Carolina State capital was not an official symbol of the Confederate States of America! It became the symbol Southern resistance to the anti-apartheid movement also called “integration” during the twentieth century.  In recent years especially during the “Civil Rights” movement, that flag came to represent a consciousness of racial apartheid and animus, political subjugation, socio-economic caste and psychological terror. South Carolina US Senator Strom Thurman popularized that flag when he ran as a presidential candidate in 1948 as a Dixiecrat. During this time the Democrats controlled the South.

 It wasn’t until Lyndon Johnson passed the Civil Rights Bill of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that Southern whites abandoned the Democratic Party in mass and switched Republican. So in actuality the rebel flag is a modern symbol of white supremacy.
            Now in light of the Charleston killings, defenders of that ethos are trying to obfuscate and revise American history. They are attempting to deflect the truth about the real meaning of the rebel flag. Since the killings I have read and seen articles and posts on YouTube claiming the War Between the States was not about slavery, that it was about “states rights”, tariffs and finance, that the rebel flag is merely a symbol of family history, tradition and regional pride! There were posts about Blacks owning slaves and African chiefs selling other Africans into slavery; anything to take the onus off of whites to prevent us from seeing not only the individual atrocities like Charleston South Carolina but the systemic holocausts white supremacy has wrought not only here in this country but around the world!
            If there was ever any doubt about whether slavery was the central issue in the War Between the States, I’ve included a picture of a one hundred dollar bill from the Confederate States of America. Look at the images on the paper. This piece of evidence alone will reveal just how integral the institution of slavery was to the Confederate States of America and its economy. Yes there were issues of “states’ rights”, there were conflicting regional cultural practices and interests, differences in economic philosophy but never forget the fact both the North and South were united on racism and warmongering. Both the North and the South profited from slavery, it’s just the North’s economy was more diverse and did not depend mainly on agriculture as did the South. The Northern financial elites had a major grip on the flow of capital and more access to money than their Southern counterparts.
            If you look at Western and modern world history you find Europeans love war. There is rarely a year that goes by they are not fighting, killing and plundering somewhere, even today. So from my perspective the issues of tariffs, the fugitive slave act, the expansion of slavery into the territories were just excuses for them to do what they love to do best, kill and maim each other and people of color.
 Bloody Kansas between1853-1861 is an example where whites used violence to decide whether Kansas would be a “free” state or a “slave” State. Many define Bleeding Kansas as a precursor to the War Between the States. If that logic is correct then the War Between the States was about slavery!
 Remember slavery was enshrined in the original US Constitution.  The original document that bound the former British colonies together was The Articles of Confederation. It said nothing about slavery from a policy standpoint and left it to the individual states to deal with the issue as they saw fit.  But delegates to a convention called in 1787 to revise the Articles of Confederation conspired to created a totally new document that would enshrine their class as the ruling elite in the more centralized government they created!  Since many of the delegates were slaveholders or profited from slavery in some form or other, slavery became a key issue in the new document called the Constitution of the Untied States of America.

 “A final major issue involving slavery confronted the delegates. Southern states wanted other states to return escaped slaves. The Articles of Confederation had not guaranteed this. But when Congress adopted the Northwest Ordinance, it a clause promising that slaves who escaped to the Northwest Territories would be returned to their owners. The delegates placed a similar fugitive slave clause in the Constitution. This was part of a deal with New England states. In exchange for the fugitive slave clause, the New England states got concessions on shipping and trade. These compromises on slavery had serious effects on the nation. The fugitive slave clause (enforced through legislation passed in 1793 and 1850) allowed escaped slaves to be chased into the North and caught. It also resulted in the illegal kidnapping and return to slavery of thousands of free blacks. The three-fifths compromise increased the South’s representation in Congress and the Electoral College. In 12 of the first 16 presidential elections, a Southern slave owner won. Extending the slave trade past 1800 brought many slaves to America. South Carolina alone imported 40,000 slaves between 1803 and 1808 (when Congress overwhelmingly voted to end the trade). So many slaves entered that slavery spilled into the Louisiana territory and took root.” The Constitution and Slavery http://www.crf-usa.org/black-history-month/the-constitution-and-sla…
            Slavery (both European and African) was the driving force in both the colonial and US economies. Slavery was woven into the fabric of the US Constitution making it the law of the land! The roots of what we see/saw in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, Ferguson Missouri, Baltimore Maryland and Charleston South Carolina recently go back to colonial America when the European monopoly trading companies and their administrators decided to augment their white slave labor force (indentured servants) with Africans. The profit motive “the top priority is the bottom line” of capitalism forged a brutal system that exploited the white bondsmen and African captives using them both as cheap labor. That tradition continued after the Revolutionary War and up until the War Between the States.
            White and Black resistance to the colonial administrators abuses (Beacon’s Rebellion and others) forced the colonial governors to make concessions to the poor whites/indentured servants so they would not side with Native Americans and Africans against the elites. They used divide and rule to undermine Black and White unity. They “freed” the indentured servants, allowed them to call themselves “white” then gave them a modicum of “rights”, privileges and mobility they denied Native Americans and Africans.
            Those divide and rule tactics have allowed the ruling elites to still remain in power and control from colonial times, through the transition to the United States to the present. This is why incidents like Ferguson, Baltimore and Charleston happen! Don’t fall for the okey doke. The rebel flag is not the central issue. It is only a piece of material. The real issue is the consciousness and values behind it! As vile as what that flag represents is, taking it down is only a symbolic concession as long as the consciousness of white supremacy, white skin privilege and domination remain.

Newtown school shooting story already being changed

Newtown school shooting story already being changed by the media to eliminate eyewitness reports of a second shooter

 

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

(NaturalNews) The national media is ablaze today with coverage of the tragic elementary school shooting in Newtown, CT, where 27 people have reportedly been killed, including 18 children.

As always, when violent shootings take place, honest journalists are forced to ask the question: “Does this fit the pattern of other staged shootings?”

One of the most important red flags of a staged shooting is a second gunman, indicating the shooting was coordinated and planned. There are often mind control elements at work in many of these shootings. The Aurora “Batman” shooter James Holmes, for example, was a graduate student actually working on mind control technologies funded by the U.S. government. There were also chemical mind control elements linked to Jared Lee Loughner, the shooter of Congresswomen Giffords in Arizona in 2011.

According to multiple eyewitness reports from Aurora, Colorado, including at least one caught on camera by mainstream media news reports in Colorado, James Holmes did not operate alone. There was a second shooter involved. But the media quickly eliminated any mention of a second shooter from its coverage, resorting to the typical cover story of a “lone gunman.”

Today, the exact same thing is happening with the Newton, CT school shooting.

Eyewitness reports of a second shooter now being “scrubbed” from the news

As the story of this shooting was first breaking, the news was reporting a second gunman.

FoxNews reported that this second gunman was “led out of the woods by officers” and then questioned. The original source of this report was the Connecticut Post.

A local CBS affiliate was also reporting the existence of a second gunman and said “Police believe there may be a second gunman and are looking for a red or maroon van with its back window blown out…”

ABC News also originally reported, “A second gunman is apparently at large. Car-to-car searches are underway.”

A local CT CBS affiliate was also reporting, “CBS News reports that a potential second shooter is in custody and that SWAT is now investigating the home of the suspect. A witness tells WFSB-TV that a second man was taken out of the woods in handcuffs wearing a black jacket and camouflage pants and telling parents on the scene, ‘I did not do it.'”

But the more recent stories being put out by the media are scrubbing any mention of a second gunman and going with the “lone gunman” explanation, which holds about as much water as the “lone gunman” explanation of the JFK assassination.

“A lone gunman killed 27 people at an elementary school here, including 18 children, in a terrifying early Friday morning shooting spree,” reports USA Today. It makes no mention whatsoever of a second gunman.

NBC News is also now chiming in with the “lone gunman” version of the story, eliminating any mention of a second gunman from its coverage of the tragic event.

Another story authored by NBC News carries the title, “26 dead after lone gunman assaults Connecticut elementary school.” Once again, no mention of a second gunman as reported by eyewitnesses.

When key elements of the story keeps changing, something is fishy

Journalists are trained to ask questions, and one of the questions I have right now is: Why was the second gunman suddenly dropped from media coverage after the first few hours of this story developing?

And why is there always a second gunman in these recent mass shootings that seem to be engineered to maximize emotional shock value due to the sheer horror of all the innocent deaths?

This story is continuing to develop, and we’ll keep asking questions here on Natural News. Our hearts and prayers go out to the children and families impacted by this violent tragedy. Given the terrible loss of life that has taken place here, shouldn’t we all seek to get to the bottom of WHY these shootings all seem to fit a common pattern of multiple mind-controlled shooters followed by an almost immediate media cover-up of the facts?

For the sake of those children who were killed today, I want to get to the bottom of this and expose the REAL story, for the purpose of stopping this violence from targeting yet more innocents in the future.

Sandy Hook School Massacre: Unanswered Questions/Missing Information

The Sandy Hook School Massacre: Unanswered Questions and Missing Information

school
“[My staff] and I hope the people of Newtown don’t have it crash on their head later.” –Connecticut Medical Examiner D. Wayne Carver II, MD, December 15, 2012

Inconsistencies and anomalies abound when one turns an analytical eye to news of the Newtown school massacre. The public’s general acceptance of the event’s validity and faith in its resolution suggests a deepened credulousness borne from a world where almost all news and information is electronically mediated and controlled. The condition is reinforced through the corporate media’s unwillingness to push hard questions vis-à-vis Connecticut and federal authorities who together bottlenecked information while invoking prior restraint through threats of prosecutorial action against journalists and the broader citizenry seeking to interpret the event on social media.

Along these lines on December 19 the Connecticut State Police assigned individual personnel to each of the 26 families who lost a loved one at Sandy Hook Elementary. “The families have requested no press interviews,” State Police assert on their behalf, “and we are asking that this request be honored.[1] The de facto gag order will be in effect until the investigation concludes—now forecast to be “several months away” even though lone gunman Adam Lanza has been confirmed as the sole culprit.[2]

With the exception of an unusual and apparently contrived appearance by Emilie Parker’s alleged father, victims’ family members have been almost wholly absent from public scrutiny.[3] What can be gleaned from this and similar coverage raises many more questions and glaring inconsistencies than answers. While it sounds like an outrageous claim, one is left to inquire whether the Sandy Hook shooting ever took place—at least in the way law enforcement authorities and the nation’s news media have described.

The Accidental Medical Examiner
An especially important yet greatly underreported feature of the Sandy Hook affair is the wholly bizarre performance of Connecticut’s top medical examiner H. Wayne Carver II at a December 15 press conference. Carver’s unusual remarks and behavior warrant close consideration because in light of his professional notoriety they appear remarkably amateurish and out of character.

H. Wayne Carver II has an extremely self-assured, almost swaggering presence in Connecticut state administration. In early 2012 Carver threatened to vacate his position because of state budget cuts and streamlining measures that threatened his professional autonomy over the projects and personnel he oversaw.
Along these lines the pathologist has gone to excessive lengths to demonstrate his findings and expert opinion in court proceedings. For example, in a famous criminal case Carver “put a euthanized pig through a wood chipper so jurors could match striations on the bone fragments with the few ounces of evidence that prosecutors said were on the remains of the victim.”[4] One would therefore expect Carver to be in his element while identifying and verifying the exact ways in which Sandy Hook’s children and teachers met their violent demise.

Yet the H. Wayne Carver who showed up to the December 15 press conference is an almost entirely different man, appearing apprehensive and uncertain, as if he is at a significant remove from the postmortem operation he had overseen. The multiple gaffes, discrepancies, and hedges in response to reporters’ astute questions suggest that he is either under coercion or an imposter. While the latter sounds untenable it would go a long way in explaining his sub-pedestrian grasp of medical procedures and terminology.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zE0OT5od9DA
With this in mind extended excerpts from this exchange are worthy of recounting here in print. Carver is accompanied by Connecticut State Police Lieutenant H. Paul Vance and additional Connecticut State Police personnel. The reporters are off-screen and thus unidentified so I have assigned them simple numerical identification based on what can be discerned of their voices.

Reporter #1: So the rifle was the primary weapon?
H. Wayne Carver: Yes.
Reporter #1: [Inaudible]
Carver: Uh (pause). Question was what caliber were these bullets. And I know—I probably know more about firearms than most pathologists but if I say it in court they yell at me and don’t make me answer [sic]—so [nervous laughter]. I’ll let the police do that for you.
Reporter #2: Doctor can you tell us about the nature of the wounds. Were they at very close range? Were the children shot at from across the room?
Carver: Uhm, I only did seven of the autopsies. The victims I had ranged from three to eleven wounds apiece and I only saw two of them with close range shooting. Uh, but that’s, uh y’know, a sample. Uh, I really don’t have detailed information on the rest of the injuries.
[Given that Carver is Connecticut’s top coroner and in charge of the entire postmortem this is a startling admission.-JT]
Reporter #3: But you said that the long rifle was used?
Carver: Yes.
Reporter #3: But the long rifle was discovered in the car.
State Police Lieutenant Vance: That’s not correct, sir.
Unidentified reporter #4: How many bullets or bullet fragments did you find in the autopsy. Can you tell us that?
Carver: Oh. I’m lucky I can tell you how many I found. I don’t know. There were lots of them, OK? This type of weapon is not, uh … the bullets are designed in such a fashion that the energy—this is very clinical. I shouldn’t be saying this. But the energy is deposited in the tissue so the bullet stays in [the tissue].
[In fact, the Bushmaster .223 Connecticut police finally claimed was used in the shooting is designed for long range field use and utilizes high velocity bullets averaging 3,000 feet-per-second, the energy of which even at considerable distance would penetrate several bodies before finally coming to rest in tissue.]
Reporter #5: How close were the injuries?
Carver: Uh, all the ones (pause). I believe say, yes [sic].
Reporter #6: In what shape were the bodies when the families were brought to check [inaudible].
Carver: Uh, we did not bring the bodies and the families into contact. We took pictures of them, uhm, of their facial features. We have, uh, uh—it’s easier on the families when you do that. Un, there is, uh, a time and place for the up close and personal in the grieving process, but to accomplish this we thought it would be best to do it this way and, uh, you can sort of, uh … You can control a situation depending on the photographer, and I have very good photographers. Uh, but uh—
Reporter #7: Do you know the difference of the time of death between the mother in the house and the bodies recovered [in the school].
Carver: Uh, no, I don’t. Sorry [shakes head excitedly] I don’t! [embarrassed laugh]
Reporter #8: Did the gunman kill himself with the rifle?
Carver: No. I—I don’t know yet. I’ll-I’ll examine him tomorrow morning. But, but I don’t think so.
[Why has Carver left arguably the most important specimen for last? And why doesn’t he think Lanza didn’t commit suicide with the rifle?]
Reporter #9: In terms of the children, were they all found in one classroom or—
Carver: Uhm … [inaudible] [Turns to Lieutenant Vance] Paul and company will deal with that.
Reporter #9: What?
Carver: Paul and company will deal with that. Lieutenant Vance is going to handle that one.
Reporter #10: Was there any evidence of a struggle? Any bruises?
Carver: No.
Reporter #11: The nature of the shooting; is there any sense that there was a lot of care taken with precision [inaudible] or randomly?
Carver: [Exhales while glancing upward, as if frustrated] Both. It’s a very difficult question to answer … You’d think after thousands of people I’ve seen shot but I … It’s … If I attempted to answer it in court there’d be an objection and then they’d win—[nervous laughter].
[Who would win? Why does an expert whose routine job as a public employee is to provide impartial medical opinion concerned with winning and losing in court? Further, Carver is not in court but rather at a press conference.]
Reporter #12: Doctor, can you discuss the fatal injuries to the adults?
Carver: Ah, they were similar to those of the children.
Reporter #13: Doctor, the children you had autopsied, where in the bodies were they hit?
Carver: Uhm [pause]. All over. All over.
Reporter #14: Were [the students] sitting at their desks or were they running away when this happened?
Carver: I’ll let the guys who—the scene guys talk—address that issue. I, uh, obviously I was at the scene. Obviously I’m very experienced in that. But there are people who are, uh, the number one professionals in that. I’ll let them—let that [voice trails off].
Reporter [#15]: How many boys and how many girls [were killed]?
Carver: [Slowly shaking his head] I don’t know.

(Added information from research about the CT Medical Examiner.

State M.E. Carver withdraws his resignation)

More Unanswered Questions and Inconsistencies
In addition to Carver’s remarks several additional chronological and evidentiary contradictions in the official version of the Sandy Hook shooting are cause for serious consideration and leave doubt in terms of how the event transpired vis-à-vis the way authorities and major media outlets have presented it. It is now well known that early on journalists reported that Adam Lanza’s brother Ryan Lanza was reported to be the gunman, and that pistols were used in the shooting rather than a rifle. Yet these are merely the tip of the iceberg.

  • When Did the Gunman Arrive?

After Adam Lanza fatally shot and killed his mother at his residence, he drove himself to the elementary school campus, arriving one half hour after classes had commenced. Dressed in black, Lanza proceeds completely unnoticed through an oddly vacant parking lot with a military style rifle and shoots his way through double glass doors and a brand new yet apparently poorly engineered security system.
Further, initial press accounts suggest how no school personnel or students heard gunshots and no 911 calls are made until after Lanza begins firing inside the facility. “It was a lovely day,” Sandy Hook fourth grade teacher Theodore Varga said. And then, suddenly and unfathomably, gunshots rang out. “I can’t even remember how many,” Varga said.[5]
The recollection contrasts sharply with an updated version of Lanza’s arrival where at 9:30AM he

walked up to the front entrance and fired at least a half dozen rounds into the glass doors. The thunderous sound of Lanza blowing an opening big enough to walk through the locked school door caused Principal Dawn Hochsprung and school psychologist Mary Scherlach to bolt from a nearby meeting room to investigate. He shot and killed them both as they ran toward him.

Breaching the school’s security system in such a way would have likely triggered some automatic alert of school personnel. Further, why would the school’s administrators run toward an armed man who has just noisily blasted his way into the building?
Two other staff members attending the meeting with Hocksprung and Scherlach sustained injuries “in the hail of bullets” but returned to the aforementioned meeting room and managed a call to 911.[6] This contrasted with earlier reports where the first 911 call claimed students “were trapped in a classroom with the adult shooter who had two guns.”[7] Recordings of the first police dispatch following the 911 call at 9:35:50 indicate that someone “thinks there’s someone shooting in the building.”[8] There is a clear distinction between potentially hearing shots somewhere in the building and being almost mortally caught in a “hail of bullets.”

  • How did the gunman fire so many shots in such little time?

According to Dr. Carver and State Police, Lanza shot each victim between 3 and 11 times during a 5 to 7 minute span. If one is to average this out to 7 bullets per individual—excluding misses—Lanza shot 182 times, or once every two seconds. Yet according to the official story Lanza was the sole assassin and armed with only one weapon. Thus if misses and changing the gun’s 30-shot magazine at least 6 times are added to the equation Lanza must have been averaging about one shot per second—extremely skilled use of a single firearm for a young man with absolutely no military training and who was on the verge of being institutionalized. Still, an accurate rendering of the event is even more difficult to arrive at because the chief medical examiner admittedly has no idea exactly how the children were shot or whether a struggle ensued.

  • Where is the Photo and Video Evidence?

Photographic and video evidence is at once profuse yet lacking in terms of its capacity to demonstrate that a mass shooting took place on the scale described by authorities. For example, in an era of ubiquitous video surveillance of public buildings especially no visual evidence of Lanza’s violent entry has emerged. And while studio snapshots of the Sandy Hook victims abound there is little if any eyewitness testimony of anyone who’s observed the corpses except for Carver and his staff, and they appear almost as confused about the conditions of the deceased as any layperson watching televised coverage of the event. Nor are there any routine eyewitness, photo or video evidence of the crime scene’s aftermath—broken glass, blasted security locks and doors, bullet casings and holes, bloodied walls and floors—all of which are common in such investigations and reportage.

  • Why Were Medical Personnel Turned Away From the Crime Scene?

Oddly enough medical personnel are forced to set up their operation not at the school where the dead and injured lay, but rather at the fire station several hundred feet away. This flies in the face of standard medical operating procedure where personnel are situated as close to the scene as possible. There is no doubt that the school had ample room to accommodate such personnel. Yet medical responders who rushed to Sandy Hill Elementary upon receiving word of the tragedy were denied entry to the school and forced to set up primary and secondary triages off school grounds and wait for the injured to be brought to them.
Shortly after the shooting “as other ambulances from neighboring communities rolled up, sirens blaring, the first responders slowly realized that their training would be tragically underutilized on this horrible day. ‘You may not be able to save everybody, but you damn well try,’” 44 year old emergency medical technician James Wolff told NBC News. “’And when (we) didn’t have the opportunity to put our skills into action, it’s difficult.’”[9]

In light of this, who were the qualified medical practitioners pronounced the 20 children and 7 adults dead? Who decided that none could be revived? Carver and his staff are apparently the only medical personnel to have attended to the victims—yet this was in the postmortem conducted several hours later. Such slipshod handling of the crime scene leaves the State of Connecticut open to a potential array of hefty civil claims by families of the slain.

  • Did a mass evacuation of the school take place?

Sandy Hook Elementary is attended by 600 students. Yet there is no photographic or video evidence of an evacuation on this scale. Instead, limited video and photographic imagery suggest that a limited evacuation of perhaps at most several dozen students occurred.

A highky
A highly circulated photo depicts students walking in a single file formation with their hands on each others’ shoulders and eyes shut. Yet this was the image of a drill that took place prior to the event itself.[10] Most other photos are portraits of individual children. Despite aerial video footage of the event documenting law enforcement scouring the scene and apprehending one or more suspects in the wooded area nearby the school,[11] there is no such evidence that a mass exodus of children from the school transpired once law enforcement pronounced Sandy Hook secure. Nor are there videos or photos of several hundred students and their parents at the oft-referenced fire station nearby where students were routed for parent pick up.

Sound Bite Prism and the Will to Believe
Outside of a handful of citizen journalists and alternative media commentators Sandy Hill’s dramatically shifting factual and circumstantial terrain has escaped serious critique because it is presented through major media’s carefully constructed prism of select sound bites alongside a widespread and longstanding cultural impulse to accept the pronouncements of experts, be they bemused physicians, high ranking law enforcement officers, or political leaders demonstrating emotionally-grounded concern.
Political scientist W. Lance Bennett calls this the news media’s “authority-disorder bias.” “Whether the world is returned to a safe, normal place,” Bennett writes, “or whether the very idea of a normal world is called into question, the news is preoccupied with order, along with related questions of whether authorities are capable of establishing or restoring it.”[12]

Despite Carver’s bizarre performance and law enforcement authorities’ inability to settle on and relay simple facts, media management’s impulse to assure audiences and readerships of the Newtown community’s inevitable adjustment to its trauma and loss with the aid of the government’s protective oversight—however incompetent that may be—far surpasses a willingness to undermine this now almost universal news media narrative with messy questions and suggestions of intrigue. This well-worn script is one the public has been conditioned to accept. If few people relied on such media to develop their world view this would hardly be a concern. Yet this is regrettably not the case.

The Sandy Hook tragedy was on a far larger scale than the past year’s numerous slaughters, including the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting and the Batman theater shooting in Colorado. It also included glaringly illogical exercises and pronouncements by authorities alongside remarkably unusual evidentiary fissures indistinguishable by an American political imagination cultivated to believe that the corporate, government and military’s sophisticated system of organized crime is largely confined to Hollywood-style storylines while really existing malfeasance and crises are without exception returned to normalcy.

If recent history is a prelude the likelihood of citizens collectively assessing and questioning Sandy Hook is limited even given the event’s overtly superficial trappings. While the incident is ostensibly being handled by Connecticut law enforcement, early reports indicate how federal authorities were on the scene as the 911 call was received. Regardless of where one stands on the Second Amendment and gun control, it is not unreasonable to suggest the Obama administration complicity or direct oversight of an incident that has in very short order sparked a national debate on the very topic—and not coincidentally remains a key piece of Obama’s political platform.

The move to railroad this program through with the aid of major media and an irrefutable barrage of children’s portraits, “heartfelt” platitudes and ostensible tears neutralizes a quest for genuine evidence, reasoned observation and in the case of Newtown honest and responsible law enforcement. Moreover, to suggest that Obama is not capable of deploying such techniques to achieve political ends is to similarly place ones faith in image and interpretation above substance and established fact, the exact inclination that in sum has brought America to such an impasse.
