Hideous liars lying about guns: what people don’t know, don’t want to know, are too naïve to believe, and are too scared to say

“After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn’t do it. I sure as hell wouldn’t want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.” — William Burroughs

We’re looking at a grotesque con here. A hustle. And the predatory politicians lying about guns know they’re lying. They’re disgusting. Repulsive. Sane people can smell the stench rising from them miles away.

First of all, 99% of the people who own guns—I don’t care what kinds of guns—don’t shoot other people. They don’t.

So a legitimate politician who has eyes to see and is honest—there are a few—would say this:

“I’m going to show you where most of the gun crimes in America are committed. I’m talking about murder, I’m talking about wounding, I’m talking about armed robberies, and I’m also talking about places where the residents live under constant daily fear of people shooting guns.”

This would clear the air.

It would also put mass spree shootings in proper perspective, since they account for only a fraction of ongoing chronic gun crimes.

So…on a map, what areas do you think this honest politician would circle? Where are most of the gun crimes being committed—not because the guns are going off by themselves, but because actual people are shooting them.

I assume you know. Inner cities. Saint Louis, Chicago, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, etc.

Who are the people doing most of the shooting in those cities?

Gangs.

Which people in those cities are putting residents under the most fear on a day to day basis?

Gang members.

So here’s a unique idea. Go after the people shooting the guns.

Don’t jabber about taking the guns away from everybody—that’s what the predatory leaders are doing…and they KNOW that won’t solve the situation. They know. Which means they don’t really want to stop the shooting and the killing and the wounding.

But the gangs are immune. They have privilege, for several reasons.

One of those reasons is: according to media and most of government, law-enforcement may not go after groups of black men. That’s it in a nutshell.

Doesn’t matter that those groups of black men are gangs who are responsible for an extraordinary number of gun crimes.

Here’s a bonus fact. What else do gangs do that is destroying many, many lives every day? They distribute and sell killer street drugs for drug cartels. Crack, meth, fentanyl.

What do the cartels do with the massive amounts of money they make? For one thing, they wash it through banks.

This is called a clue, my friends. A clue as to why gangs are protected. They’re good for business. Big business.

Black Lives Matter, which has been funded with major white money, has functioned as a front for the cartels and the banks, in the sense that BLM has completely diverted the American people from thinking about ongoing gun violence and massive drug trafficking operated by cartel agents—THE GANGS—and instead has pressured millions of people to focus on cops killing black people.

If you care to, you can look up the statistics on how many black people cops kill, versus how many black people black gangs kill.

But of course, Black Lives Matter will tell you these comparative numbers don’t Matter at all. Just mentioning them is an act of systemic racism.

Sure it is. Right. Of course.

In reality, some black lives matter more than others. The innocent black people who are robbed at gunpoint, wounded and killed by bullets, held in fear of violence in their own neighborhoods—they matter less than black gang members who are doing the robbing and wounding and killing and selling the killer drugs and owning the neighborhoods and filling those neighborhoods with fear.

Consider this scenario: A very large corporation has been shoveling funds to Black Lives Matter. That corporation is operating on very slim profit margins. In fact, it’s heading right into the red. It has to take out a huge loan. What kind of money could it reach for, if it quietly wants to obtain the best possible terms?

Drug money.

Connect the dots.

Who protects that drug money? BLM. It does it by protecting the gang traffickers. It does THAT by focusing Americans on violence committed by cops instead of gangs.

Who knows? In the world we’re living in, you might be working for a corporation that is floating on drug money—or even a company that was launched by a cartel laundering its money.

Those companies are all over the place. Criminal organizations start them all the time.

The companies are brought to you by gangs with guns on the ground in major cities, who are wounding and killing and robbing people, and doing the grunt work of distributing and selling the drugs that make the big drug money for the cartels, who use that money to launch “legitimate” companies.

This is also Culture:

“Get Rich Or Die Tryin’.” Rapper 50 Cent.

The kids love it.

Let me boil all this down by presenting an imaginary Congressional hearing, in which a black ex-BLM member spills the beans:

Why did you leave BLM?

Because I saw what it was really doing.

And what is that?

BLM is making it socially and politically impossible for law-enforcement to go after black gangs who are shooting black people in inner cities. And BLM is essentially controlling public perception. Making the public see only the instances where white cops kill black people.

I see. So that means—

That means the gangs are given a free pass. And the gangs are killing far more black people than cops do. It isn’t even close.

Hmm. But—

That’s not all. Aside from shooting and killing black people, the gangs are selling and distributing drugs for the Mexican cartels. Making huge money for the cartels. The cartels wash that money in banks.

Wait a minute. We aren’t here today to talk about banks.

Oh yes we are. BLM is by proxy working for those banks. The banks need the gangs to stay free of major prosecution. Because the gangs make money for the cartels and the cartels wash that money in banks.

Stop right there—

No I won’t. You people say you want to stop gun violence in America. But you won’t lift a finger to bring RICO cases against the biggest source of gun violence in America, the gangs. And I’m telling why you won’t.

I’m calling a recess now. This is getting way off track.

It’s exactly on track.

We’re in recess.

—And that’s the end of the hearing.

And news outlets report the hearing as a minor story for one day and it never surfaces again.

The Drudge Report effect: a dumpster of social engineering and mind control

by Jon Rappoport

May 16, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

In reporting on the Buffalo shooting, Drudge prints a series of headlines at the upper left of the page:

* Buffalo shooter targeted Black neighborhood…

* Was inspired by racist theory underpinning global carnage…

* Scene like Armageddon…

* Terrified shoppers jumped in freezers…

* Gov. calls for social media crackdown; ‘Instruments of evil’…

* Copycats becoming deadlier… Grim chronology…

* UPDATE: One dead, multiple injured in CA church shooting; Taiwanese congregation…

The key phrases are “inspired by racist theory underpinning,” and “social media crackdown.”

The whole point is convincing people to believe in the INCITEMENT narrative, when it comes to free speech:

“You see, we have to limit what people can post and write and say, because OTHER PEOPLE will be inspired by words to commit evil and violent crimes.”

This is the preferred method of social engineering and mind control these days.

Of course, it’s selective. No “liberal” in his right mind would suggest that leaking the Supreme Court opinion to overturn Roe v Wade incited people to gather at Justices’ homes to try to try to intimidate the Court. Of course not.

But racist posts online incited a white man to commit mass murder of black people in Buffalo. Sure. Right.

Taking the incitement narrative further, we’re supposed to blame the content of online racist posts for the mass murder, instead of focusing on the single shooter himself and saying he is solely responsible for the murders he committed.

Because putting responsibility on his head takes away the effect of the social engineering con.

We have to clamp down hard on social media and censor until the cows come home—to prevent mass murders. That’s what we’re supposed to believe.

Of course, any language in any context can be blamed for inciting someone else.

You write a series of tweets—and a few months later, a print-out of the tweets is found in a locker along with 6000 pages of other material; and the locker was rented by a man who just killed six shoppers in a mall—so you’re guilty of inciting.

Drudge goes for the tabloid effect. He could have posted links to any number of statements about free speech and the Constitution recently posted by authors…but where is the lurid payoff in doing that?

Here’s the picture you’re supposed to see: out there in the country, there are hundreds of men just waiting for the verbal trigger that will set them off. Without those triggers (posts, tweets), they would NEVER cause harm. It’s the triggers that are the problem. The triggers must be eliminated. Censored.

That’s what you’re supposed to see and believe, instead of realizing that a few men out there are already inclined to commit mass murder, and come hell or high water, they’ll FIND a reason to go on a rampage. And no amount of censorship will stop them.

And guess what? This is exactly the situation that applies to rabid censors. No matter what, they will find a reason to impose censorship on the population. They’ll find a reason, and it will align with their political and social agendas.

That’s called reality.

Buffalo mass shooting—say what?

by Jon Rappoport

May 16, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

8PM, ET, Saturday, May 14.

White shooter, black victims. Shooter had composed racist manifesto.

OK, let’s start with the news report.

AP: “A gunman opened fire with a rifle Saturday at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, in what authorities called a ‘hate crime and racially motived violent extremism,’ killing 10 people and wounding three others before being taken in custody, law enforcement officials said.”

“The suspect was identified as Payton Gendron of Conklin, about 200 miles southeast of Buffalo in New York state, two law enforcement officials told The Associated Press…The suspect was being questioned Saturday evening by the FBI, one of the officials said.”

The FBI was on the scene in two seconds. Both the Governor of NY and the President were “being kept abreast” of breaking developments.

Labeling the mass shooting a hate crime allows the FBI to jump in. That’s a subject for another article, or a book. My point here is:

What about the US cities where murders are served up for breakfast every day?

Getjerry.com: “Your odds of being the victim of a violent crime in Chicago are 1 in 103…according to the New York Times, it’s only seventh in the nation when it comes to murder rates, edged out by cities like St. Louis, New Orleans, and Baltimore.”

Any reasonable person would conclude that violent crime in these cities is out of control. Local law enforcement can’t or won’t deal with it.

When THAT is the case, the US Dept. of Justice has every right to step in and take over.

But it doesn’t.

It only makes a move in a one-off situation like Buffalo, because…hate crime.

The last time I looked, a person who is dead on a floor or a street, as a result of a bullet, is exactly the same degree of dead, whether the bullet was fired by a specific kind of hater or a more general hater.

And, of course, Buffalo gives the FBI and the DOJ a chance for a photo op. Don’t discount that.

In the top murder cities in America, if you could go in and do an honest poll of residents—particularly mothers—in key neighborhoods where gunfire is daily background music— and if you could get honest answers, you’d discover these residents would prefer ongoing active FBI engagement to FBI one-offs every five years. The residents would prefer ANY law enforcement that makes the streets safer.

But who cares about what the residents care about?

They’re the last people to ask.

Instead, we need government bureaucrats to supply all the answers, and politicians to make hay out of hate crimes, and “spokespeople” for the inner-city residents to take center stage. And news media to climb on board and blame Trump or Tucker Carlson.

We need experts to tell us the difference between hate crimes and ordinary murder, and we need them to educate us about systemic racism as the cause for crimes committed by black men.

The black VICTIMS of the black men’s crimes are of NO concern. They’re sacrificed on the altar of “exposing racism at the heart of American life.”

That’s the social contract. Focus no attention whatsoever on the black victims. Instead, explain the black killers’ “true motives”—which, according to experts, are completely beyond the killers’ control.

Dept. of Justice RICO (continuing criminal enterprise) prosecutions of murderous inner city gangs? Out of the question.

In 2021, Philadelphia had 521 murders; New York, 443; Los Angeles, 352; Indianapolis, 246; Chicago, 739. And these numbers were reported with at least three weeks left in the year.

But as far as the FBI and the DOJ are concerned, these numbers and these very real dead people don’t count. The agencies don’t show up in those cities, they don’t do photo ops, they certainly don’t put their own officers on the streets. They don’t push aside local officials who are obstructing local police from doing their jobs.

No. They’re going to Buffalo.

The rest of the time, they’re muttering under their breaths, “Black people killing black people is what black people do, there’s nothing we can do about it.”

This is what the political LEFT is saying.

So don’t bullshit me with Buffalo.

Now: Stop FDA authorization of COVID shot for kids

Stand at the gates of Hell

by Jon Rappoport

March 31, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

A faceless Nazi bureaucracy is poised, waiting for the FDA’s signal to advance on small children and infants, with needles of death.

You can find all the government contact info and talking points — as well as the entire time line of developments, here, here, here, and here — in Toby Rogers’ articles. Also read this stunning article by Celia Farber.

And then raise the Alarm on all fronts. Raise holy hell.

The FDA is taking another run at authorizing the horrific COVID vaccine for children, ages 6 months to 4 years. This is murder and maiming right out in the open.

Even from a conventional medical position, it’s senseless: It’s trying to prevent a disease that doesn’t happen in children. It’s straight-out slaughter.

The federal database contains well over a million reports of injuries from the COVID vaccine. And that figure represents vast UNDER-reporting.

The medical apparatus that administers these shots is remorseless. It doesn’t think. It just acts under orders. It doesn’t stop and wonder about the little children and infants. It has no conscience. It doesn’t need to explain itself. It only has to say, “The vaccine was authorized.”

And the body that authorizes it only has to say, “We weighed the benefits against the risks, and came to the conclusion we did.”

And then the new death march begins.

Evidence for the FDA’s decision? There is no evidence. There is only cooked data and hidden data. There is only the FDA hand in glove with Pfizer and Moderna. Partners.

There is only money and greed and control and destruction of life.

The slaughter of the innocents.

Do what they’ve been telling you to do: see something, say something.

THEY are the insurrectionists. THEY are the terrorists.

9/11: The Gold and The Minders

by Jon Rappoport

September 16, 2019

(To join our email list, click here.)

Searching through the archive of my past articles, I’ve come up with two 9/11 stories that have been largely ignored—left to gather dust as they fade from memory. Here they are:


Flashback: 9/11 and the gold in the NY Federal Reserve

January 30, 2014

With reports that Germany can’t get back much of its gold stored in the NY Federal Reserve, I remembered what I was writing just after 9/11.

Here are a few quotes. Most are from my posts on 9/11 and 9/12, 2001:

“Still no word on the condition of the NY Federal Reserve Bank, which is 2.5 blocks away from the destroyed WTC. This bank, underground, holds $75 billion in gold from [about five] dozen countries.”

“CNN has a large map posted today, which shows the condition of a number of buildings by name in the area, but, curiously, the NY Fed Reserve is not one of them.”

“And now that workers are going down underneath the remains of the WTC, where $100 million in gold is admittedly stored (Reuters), we have no word on the condition of that gold, either.”

“Yesterday, I brought up the issue of the gigantic fed gold reserve stashed underground 2.5 blocks from the WTC. And mentioned that no press accounts were covering damage to nearby buildings. Which I find odd.”

“Here is an account from [a reader] on the ground in NYC, as of an hour ago. ‘It seems like we are getting the same limited [TV] shot on all networks…kind of a tight angle shot of damage of the base of the towers…no shots of damage to nearby buildings, including the gold reserve building. No one knows anything because the whole island [of Manhattan] has been shut down below 14th St. Camera crews not allowed to wander. If you live below 14th St. and you leave your apartment you need identification in order to get back in.’”

“The WTC took up several blocks in lower Manhattan. From the Liberty Street side, it is about 2 blocks to the Fed Reserve Bank of NY, at 33 Liberty St. Under the Bank, 5 levels down, in bedrock, is the $75 billion in gold.”

“The NY Federal Reserve keeps a facility for storing gold in NYC. It handles the gold reserves of about five dozen countries. $75 billion in a vault. About 1/4 of the world’s gold supply. At least, that’s the Fed Reserve press release on this, from 1999. This vault is located close to the WTC, where the towers fell. Is it [the vault] buried? Is the vault open? Anyone see Die Hard 3? A gigantic terrorist ‘diversion’ leading to the theft of all the gold in the vault.”

In the days following 9/11, I also wrote that there were no reports or video of troops guarding the NY Federal Reserve building. This was very curious. 75 billion in gold and no troops present? Nor have I found any video from that time, later posted on YouTube, showing troops around the Fed Reserve.

There is debate about whether a tunnel existed connecting the basement of the old WTC and the basement of the Federal Reserve. A 2010 piece at Cryptome indicates (with photos) that, during the post-9/11 WTC cleanup, an old railroad tunnel between the WTC and Fed Reserve basements was uncovered. (Diehard 3 featured such a tunnel and track.)

Was the Fed Reserve gold taken away after 9/11?

Or had it been taken before 9/11? Perhaps long before.

Clearly, in the immediate wake of 9/11, there was a concerted press effort to omit or limit mention of the Federal Reserve building.

On March 2, 2013, Tyler Durden, writing at zerohedge.com, in Why Is JPMorgan’s Gold Vault, The Largest In The World, Located Next To The New York Fed’s?, reported his finding that “the de facto largest private gold vault in the world [is] located across the street [from the NY Federal Reserve building] 90 feet below 1 Chase Manhattan Plaza.”

This private vault, at the same level as the NY Fed Reserve vault, could front right up against it.

The private vault belongs to JP Morgan Chase. It is larger than a football field.

Under circumstances deemed “essential,” it would appear to be easy to transfer an enormous amount of gold from the Fed Reserve to JP Morgan Chase.

Silverdoctors.com reports that a US Treasury Dept. audit of all US gold reserves inadvertently exposed a total figure of 466 tons, far less than previous claims of 8,133 tons.

Anyone trusting that US-held gold reserves are safe and sound needs to examine his own head.


HERE IS THE SECOND STORY—

Intimidation of 9/11 Commission witnesses: the “minders”

September 15, 2017

Let’s say you work for a large corporation, which is undertaking an internal investigation of possible corruption and fraud within the company.

You’re sitting in a room, and an employee of the company is interviewing you.

But next to you sits your boss. He hears all the questions, and he hears your answers. He takes notes on the interview. He answers questions you are supposed to answer. He is your “minder.”

Getting the picture?

On October 2, 2003, during the 9/11 Commission investigation into what happened on September 11, 2001, a memo was sent to two Commission attorneys, Daniel Marcus and Steven Dunne. It was ominously titled:

“Executive Branch Minders’ Intimidation of Witnesses.”

The memo was written by members of the 9/11 Commission’s Team 2: Kevin Scheid, Lorry Fenner, and Gordon Lederman. There is no indication that any official subsequently acted on their highly serious charges:

“When we have asked witnesses [in interviews] about certain roles and responsibilities within the intelligence community, minders [in the room] have preempted witnesses’ responses by referencing formal policies and procedures. As a result, witnesses have not responded to our questions and have deprived us from understanding the intelligence community’s actual functioning and witnesses’ view of their roles and responsibilities.”

“[M]inders have positioned themselves physically and have conducted themselves in a manner that we believe intimidates witnesses from giving full and candid responses to our questions. Minders generally have sat next to witnesses at the table and across from Commission staff, [falsely] conveying to witnesses that minders are participants in interviews and are of equal status to witnesses.”

“[Minders now and then] answer questions directed at witnesses.”

“[Minders write] verbatim notes of witnesses’ statements [which] conveys to witnesses that their superiors will review their statements and may engage in retribution.”

“[Minders making notes] facilitates [government] agencies in alerting future witnesses to the Commission’s lines of inquiry and permits agencies to prepare future witnesses either explicitly or implicitly.”

“[T]he net effect of minders’ conduct, whether intentionally or not, is to intimidate witnesses and to interfere with witnesses providing full and candid responses.”

This key memo defines the term “cover-up.”

Take it even further. This Commission “minder procedure” would be analogous to you sitting in the witness box at a criminal trial of a mob boss. You’re testifying for the prosecution against the boss. But in the box, next to you, sits a mob assassin.

So you say: “I may have implied I was there on the night the defendant was planning…whatever it was. But I didn’t really say that. I was misinterpreted. I don’t recall being there. I’ve never met the defendant. I’m a retired investor living on a pension. I’m receiving treatment for early-onset dementia…”

Granted, the 9/11 Commission interviewers were certainly asking superficial questions of witnesses from the get-go. But if a government witness by chance saw something or heard something or knew something that would have exploded the official 9/11 story, with his minder there he was in a straitjacket.

And he’ll stay in a straitjacket.

The Normals vs. Conspiracy Theorists

by Jon Rappoport

August 8, 2019

(To join our email list, click here.)

In the wake of the recent mass shootings; and after the FBI concluded that conspiracy theories could fuel terror attacks; and after the major media and politicians hoisted the notion that free speech should be further eroded, in order to protect the citizenry; the obvious choice for persons who want to avoid blame for violence is: REMAIN NORMAL.

Eyes straight ahead. Don’t think. Obey official orders. Maintain a pleasant outward appearance. Don’t question authority. If you accidentally encounter information that points to crimes committed by those in power, don’t bother trying to figure out where on the political spectrum they reside. Instead, move along, forget what you experienced, keep your mouth shut. Play dumb. Better yet, become dumb.

Here’s an instructive and astonishing example, if you consider the implications.

Fake evidence used in the Oklahoma Bombing.

How official “science” was deployed to advance a political agenda.

On April 19, 1995, one-third of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City blew up, killing 169 people and wounding 680 others.

Three men were arrested and convicted: Tim McVeigh, Terry Nichols, and Michael Fortier. McVeigh was put to death on June 11, 2001, Nichols is currently serving multiple life sentences without the possibility of parole, and Fortier was sentenced to 12 years (he served that term and was released).

The official narrative of the bombing stated: A Ryder truck parked at the curb outside the Murrah Building contained barrels of ammonium nitrate plus fuel oil (ANFO bombs), and their coordinated explosion occurred shortly after 9AM on the morning of April 19th.

In addition to the deaths and the woundings, the explosion impacted 324 buildings and 86 cars in the area.

(In My 1995, book, “The Oklahoma City Bombing, the Suppressed Truth,” I laid to rest the claim that ANFO bombs could have caused that much damage; and more importantly, I showed that an explosion coming out of a Ryder truck at the curb could not have caused the particular profile of damage sustained by the Murrah Building.)

The vaunted FBI lab decided that, indeed, all the damage and death HAD been caused by ANFO bombs in the Ryder truck.

But two years after the bombing, on March 22, 1997, we had this from CNN: “The Justice Department inspector general’s office has determined that the FBI crime laboratory working on the Oklahoma City bombing case made ‘scientifically unsound’ conclusions that were ‘biased in favor of the prosecution,’ The Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.”

“…[FBI] supervisors approved lab reports that they ‘cannot support’ and…FBI lab officials may have erred about the size of the blast, the amount of explosives involved and the type of explosives used in the bombing[!].”

“…harshest criticism was of David Williams, a supervisory agent in the [FBI] explosives unit, the paper [LA Times] said. Those flaws reportedly include the basis of his determination that the main charge of the explosion was ammonium nitrate. The inspector general called such a determination ‘inappropriate,’ the Times said.”

“…FBI officials found a receipt for ammonium nitrate at defendant [Terry] Nichols’ home and, because of that discovery, Williams slanted his conclusion to match the evidence.”

And with those revelations, the case, the investigation, the court trials, and press probes should have taken a whole new direction. But they didn’t.

The fake science was allowed to stand.

Therefore, other paths of investigation were abandoned. If bombs did, in fact, explode in the Ryder truck, but didn’t cause the major damage, then those bombs were a cover for other explosions of separate origin—for example, charges wired inside the columns of the Murrah Building, triggered at the exact moment the Ryder Truck explosion occurred.

Now we would be talking about a very sophisticated operation, far beyond the technical skills of McVeigh, Nichols, and Fortier.

Who knows where an honest in-depth investigation would have led? The whole idea of anti-government militia terrorism in the OKC attack—symbolized by McVeigh—was used by President Bill Clinton to bring the frightened public “back to the federal government” as their ultimate protector and savior.

Instead, the public might have been treated to a true story about a false flag operation, in which case President Clinton’s massaged message would never have been delivered.

But the fake crooked science pushed by the FBI lab was permitted to stand—despite exposure as fraud.

If the federal government can egregiously lie about an event as huge as the Oklahoma Bombing, using fake science as a cover—what wouldn’t they lie about?

That’s a question which answers itself.

IN THIS CASE, THE FBI, CNN, THE LA TIMES, AND OTHER MAINSTRAM MEDIA OUTLETS WERE ALL GUILTY OF PUSHING “A CONSPIRACY THEORY,” BECAUSE, AS ANY FOOL CAN SEE, FOLLOWING UP ON THE FBI LAB’S CROOKED LIES AND TWISTED EVIDENCE WOULD HAVE LED TO A NEW THEORY AND A NEW INVESTIGATION OF THE CASE, IN WHICH THE BOMBER AND HIS TWO ACCOMPLICES WOULD MOST LIKELY HAVE BEEN OVERTHROWN AS A COMPLETE EXPLANATION.

Therefore, the free speech of these conspiracy theorists—CNN, the LA Times, and the FBI lab—should be limited, if not completely shut down.

After all, these conspiracists certainly provoked severe demoralization/cynicism about the honesty of government in the minds of many, many persons—and a few of those persons would have been motivated to pick up a gun and do harm to others.

You can’t have it both ways. You can’t say conspiracies are only sold by people outside the mainstream AND no matter what the mainstream publishes it never implies a conspiracy. And this is where the protests against free speech crash on the rocks. This is where the stew of accusations and pretenses of knowledge about how opinion and information cause violence crash on the rocks.

This is where people who can think begin to see how agents and players try to divide and conquer society.

Mass shootings and psychiatric drugs: the connection

by Jon Rappoport

June 12, 2018

(To join our email list, click here.)

I’ve been tracking the connection since 1999, when I wrote a long white paper, for the Truth Seeker Foundation, on school shootings and psychiatric drugs. The paper was titled: “Why Do They Do It? School shootings Across America.”

The drugs aren’t the only causative factor, but they produce what I call the Johnny Appleseed effect throughout society. Sprinkle enough of the drugs among enough people and you get otherwise unexplainable violence popping up—in schools, in workplaces. The psychiatric plague eats out the country from the inside.

Here are excerpts from my 1999 report—

The massacre at Columbine High School took place on April 20, 1999. Astonishingly, for eight days after the tragedy, during thousands of hours of prime-time television coverage, virtually no one mentioned the word “drugs.” Then the issue was opened. Eric Harris, one of the shooters at Columbine, was on at least one drug.

The NY Times of April 29, 1999, and other papers reported that Harris was rejected from enlisting in the Marines for medical reasons. A friend of the family told the Times that Harris was being treated by a psychiatrist. And then several sources told the Washington Post that the drug prescribed as treatment was Luvox, manufactured by Solvay.

In two more days, the “drug-issue” was gone.

Luvox is of the same class as Prozac and Zoloft and Paxil. They are labeled SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors). They attempt to alleviate depression by changing brain-levels of the natural substance serotonin. Luvox has a slightly different chemical configuration from Prozac, Paxil, and Zoloft, and it was approved by the FDA for obsessive-compulsive disorder, although many doctors apparently prescribe it for depression.

Prozac is the wildly popular Eli Lilly antidepressant which has been linked to suicidal and homicidal actions. It is now given to young children. Again, its chemical composition is very close to Luvox, the drug that Harris took.

Dr. Peter Breggin, the eminent psychiatrist and author (Toxic Psychiatry, Talking Back to Prozac, Talking Back to Ritalin), told me, “With Luvox there is some evidence of a four-percent rate for mania in adolescents. Mania, for certain individuals, could be a component in grandiose plans to destroy large numbers of other people. Mania can go over the hill to psychosis.”

Dr. Joseph Tarantolo is a psychiatrist in private practice in Washington DC. He is the president of the Washington chapter of the American Society of Psychoanalytic Physicians. Tarantolo states that “all the SSRIs [including Prozac and Luvox] relieve the patient of feeling. He becomes less empathic, as in `I don’t care as much,’ which means `It’s easier for me to harm you.’ If a doctor treats someone who needs a great deal of strength just to think straight, and gives him one of these drugs, that could push him over the edge into violent behavior.”

In Arianna Huffington’s syndicated newspaper column of July 9, 1998, Dr. Breggin states, “I have no doubt that Prozac can cause or contribute to violence and suicide. I’ve seen many cases. In a recent clinical trial, 6 percent of the children became psychotic on Prozac. And manic psychosis can lead to violence.”

A study from the September 1989 Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, by Joseph Lipiniski, Jr., indicates that in five examined cases people on Prozac developed what is called akathesia. Symptoms include intense anxiety, inability to sleep, the “jerking of extremities,” and “bicycling in bed or just turning around and around.” Dr. Breggin comments that akathesia “may also contribute to the drug’s tendency to cause self-destructive or violent tendencies … Akathesia can become the equivalent of biochemical torture and could possibly tip someone over the edge into self-destructive or violent behavior … The June 1990 Health Newsletter, produced by the Public Citizen Research Group, reports, ‘Akathesia, or symptoms of restlessness, constant pacing, and purposeless movements of the feet and legs, may occur in 10-25 percent of patients on Prozac.’”

Other studies:

“Emergence of self-destructive phenomena in children and adolescents during fluoxetine [Prozac] treatment,” published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (1991, vol.30), written by RA King, RA Riddle, et al. It reports self-destructive phenomena in 14% (6/42) of children and adolescents (10-17 years old) who had treatment with fluoxetine (Prozac) for obsessive-compulsive disorder.

July, 1991. Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Hisako Koizumi, MD, describes a thirteen-year-old boy who was on Prozac: “full of energy,” “hyperactive,” “clown-like.” All this devolved into sudden violent actions which were “totally unlike him.”

September, 1991. The Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Author Laurence Jerome reports the case of a ten-year old who moves with his family to a new location. Becoming depressed, the boy is put on Prozac by a doctor. The boy is then “hyperactive, agitated … irritable.” He makes a “somewhat grandiose assessment of his own abilities.” Then he calls a stranger on the phone and says he is going to kill him. The Prozac is stopped, and the symptoms disappear.

The well-known Goodman and Gilman’s The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics reveals a strange fact. It states that Ritalin [given for ADHD] is “structurally related to amphetamines … Its pharmacological properties are essentially the same as those of the amphetamines.” In other words, the only clear difference is legality. And the effects, in layman’s terms, are obvious. You take speed and, sooner or later, you start crashing. You become agitated, irritable, paranoid, delusional, aggressive.

In his book, Toxic Psychiatry, Dr. Breggin discusses the subject of drug combinations: “Combining antidepressants [e.g., Prozac, Luvox, Paxil] and psychostimulants [e.g., Ritalin] increases the risk of cardiovascular catastrophe, seizures, sedation, euphoria, and psychosis. Withdrawal from the combination can cause a severe reaction that includes confusion, emotional instability, agitation, and aggression.” Children are frequently medicated with this combination, and when we highlight such effects as aggression, psychosis, and emotional instability, it is obvious that the result is pointing toward the very real possibility of violence.

In 1986, The International Journal of the Addictions published a most important literature review by Richard Scarnati. It was titled, “An Outline of Hazardous Side Effects of Ritalin (Methylphenidate)” [v.21(7), pp. 837-841].

Scarnati listed over a hundred adverse affects of Ritalin and indexed published journal articles for each of these symptoms.

For every one of the following (selected and quoted verbatim) Ritalin effects then, there is at least one confirming source in the medical literature:

• Paranoid delusions
• Paranoid psychosis
• Hypomanic and manic symptoms, amphetamine-like psychosis
• Activation of psychotic symptoms
• Toxic psychosis
• Visual hallucinations
• Auditory hallucinations
• Can surpass LSD in producing bizarre experiences
• Effects pathological thought processes
• Extreme withdrawal
• Terrified affect
• Started screaming
• Aggressiveness
• Insomnia
• Since Ritalin is considered an amphetamine-type drug, expect amphatamine-like effects
• psychic dependence
• High-abuse potential DEA Schedule II Drug
• Decreased REM sleep
• When used with antidepressants one may see dangerous reactions including hypertension, seizures and hypothermia
• Convulsions
• Brain damage may be seen with amphetamine abuse.

Other ADHD medications, which also have a chemical profile similar to amphetamines, would be expected to produce some of the same effects listed above.

The ICSPP (International Center for the Study of Psychiatry and Psychology) News publishes the following warning in bold letters: “Do Not Try to Abruptly Stop Taking Psychiatric Drugs. When trying to withdraw from many psychiatric drugs, patients can develop serious and even life-threatening emotional and physical reactions…Therefore, withdrawal from psychiatric drugs should be done under clinical supervision…”

—end of excerpts from my 1999 white paper on school shootings and psychiatric drugs—

There is a problem. It is chilling. Pharmaceutical companies, which manufacture drug after drug for “mental disorders,” are doing everything they can to cover up the drugs’ connection to violence.

They use their lawyers and PR people—and their influence over the press—to scrub the connection.

And now, one typical, disturbing, official reaction to every new mass shooting is: build more community mental health facilities. Obama was prominent in this regard, after Sandy Hook in 2012. The implication? More drug prescriptions for more people; thus, more violent consequences.

I’ll close with another excerpt from my 1999 report. It is the tragic account of Julie Marie Meade (one account of many you can find at ssristories.org (also here)):

Dr. Joseph Tarantolo has written about Julie Marie Meade. In a column for the ICSPP (International Center for the Study of Psychiatry and Psychology) News, “Children and Prozac: First Do No Harm,” Tarantolo describes how Julie Meade, in November of 1996, called 911, “begging the cops to come and shoot her. And if they didn’t do it quickly, she would do it to herself. There was also the threat that she would shoot them as well.”

The police came within a few minutes, “5 of them to be exact, pumping at least 10 bullets into her head and torso,” as she waved a gun around.

Tarantolo remarks that a friend of Julie said Julie “had plans to make the honor roll and go to college. He [the friend] had also observed her taking all those pills.” What pills? Tarantolo called the Baltimore medical examiner, and spoke with Dr. Martin Bullock, who was on a fellowship at that office. Bullock said, “She had been taking Prozac for four years.”

Tarantolo asked Bullock, “Did you know that Prozac has been implicated in impulsive de novo violence and suicidalness?” Bullock said he was not aware of this.

Tarantolo is careful to point out, “Violent and suicidal behavior have been observed both early (a few weeks) and late (many months) in treatment with Prozac.”

The November 23rd, 1996, Washington Post reported the Julie Meade death by police shooting. The paper mentioned nothing about Prozac.

Therefore, readers were left in the dark. What could explain this girl’s bizarre and horrendous behavior?

The answer was there in plain sight. But the Post refused to make it known.

After mass shootings: they’re not just coming for guns, they’re coming for brains

After mass shootings: they’re not just coming for guns, they’re coming for brains

by Jon Rappoport

April 22, 2018

“Planners intent on deploying mind control follow a pattern. They claim they’re curing brain disorders. They’re doing valuable work. They’re only focusing on a tiny percentage of the population. But then, as you dig deeper, you discover they’re really talking about all human beings, who are, unfortunately, wired in the wrong way and can’t ascend to the next level of societal evolution. Therefore, ‘brain science’ has to engage in a wholesale program to retrofit the human species.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

A January 2018 National Geographic article runs a bold headline: THE SCIENCE OF GOOD AND EVIL.

The lead sentence carries considerable freight: “Researchers have found that the way our brains are wired can affect how much empathy we feel toward others—a key measuring stick of good and evil.”

Good and evil—suddenly transferred to the realm of science.

In the aftermath of mass shootings, it’s about guns. But hidden in the background is the notion that the bigger target is the brain.

Read this carefully from the National Geographic piece: “…in recent decades researchers have made significant advances toward understanding THE SCIENCE OF WHAT DRIVES GOOD AND EVIL. Both seem to be linked to a key emotional trait: empathy, which is AN INTRINSIC ABILITY OF THE BRAIN to experience how another person is feeling. Researchers have found that empathy is the kindling that fires compassion in our hearts, impelling us to help others in distress. Studies also have traced violent, psychopathic, and antisocial behaviors to a lack of empathy, which appears to stem from IMPAIRED NEURAL CIRCUITS…” (Emphasis is mine).

An unproven hypothesis emerges: brain deficits account for the majority of EVIL.

Fixing the brain is the answer, of course. How much do you trust medical authorities and societal planners to carry out that task? I’m not only talking about massive incompetence—I’m talking about their desire to go overboard and opt for a wide-ranging reconstruction of human beings.

In order to make humans good.

In order to make them empathetic.

In order to make them endless altruists.

In order to eradicate the notion that Self is a prime value.

We’re looking at an overreaching overhaul of the human personality.

“Don’t think about yourself. Think only about what others need.”

Infamous Yale mind-control researcher, Jose Delgado, spelled out the position in a 1965 interview with the New York Times: “The individual may think that the most important reality is his own existence, but this is only his personal point of view. This lacks historical perspective. Man does not have the right to develop his own mind…We must electronically control the brain…”

This radical refit is justified on the basis of “science”; and of course, the public has been tuned up to believe you mustn’t doubt science.

The National Geographic article quotes a 2011 published journal paper: “…the psychopath must think about right and wrong while the rest of us feel it.”

What? Really? Thinking is bad? The myriad philosophers over the ages who have written about good and evil instead needed to just FEEL? The men who framed the Constitution, instead of contemplating arbitrary power and limiting it, because it is evil, should merely have written a brief exhortation to FEEL empathy for others and then walked away from their work?

Hopefully, you see where this is going. Organized globalists are selling altruism like hotcakes, and they’re using brain research to justify it.

And they’re intent on rewiring brains to force it.

They’re not only focused on violent psychopaths. They’re focused on the human race.

They pretend that the independent individual is too close to the edge of psychopathy. Therefore—experiment on the brain until he is radically diminished and weakened, and becomes a card-carrying member of the share-and-care “human community.”

On that day, all will be well.

Amen.

In his 1962 novel, A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess wrote about this transformation: “Padre, these are subtleties. We’re not concerned with motives, with the higher ethics. We are concerned only with cutting down crime—and…with relieving the ghastly congestion in our prisons. He [the violent psychopath] will [after “adjustment”] be your true Christian: ready to turn the other cheek, ready to be crucified rather than crucify, sick to the very heart at the thought even of killing a fly! Reclamation! Joy before the angels of God! The point is that it [a brainwashing technique] works…The common people will let it go. Oh yes, they’ll sell liberty for a quieter life. That is why they must be led, sir, driven, pushed!”

Unfortunately, many people can’t distinguish between a person choosing to be good and being forced to be “good” through repellent methods of mind control. Only the appearance of an effect is important: “He is behaving. That’s fine. He’s acceptable.”

“Well, we had to rewire his brain in order to achieve this result.”

“What difference does it make? If that’s what you had to do, that’s what he needed.”

And then, one day in the future, that smug and comfortable person is told he, too, has a problem which must be fixed. For the greater good.

Suddenly, as a doctor hovers over him, he changes his mind about a wholesale program to cure civilization.

I’ll leave you with this quote from Andrew W. Saul, a nutritionist who has had much experience working in prisons. The Chicago Tribune published his op-ed piece on December 21, 2017.

“Fifteen years ago, the BBC reported that a double-blind, placebo-controlled study found that adding vitamins [and essential fatty acids] to the diets of inmates at a maximum-security institution cut offenses by 25 percent. The greatest reduction was for serious offenses, including violence, which fell by 40 percent. There was no such reduction for those on placebos. The study’s researchers claim that improving diets could be a cost-effective way of reducing crime in communities and also reducing the prison population. To quote lead study author Bernard Gesch, ‘The improvement was huge’.” [See (2002) British Journal of Psychiatry 181 22-8. The study reports a 35.1 percent “reduction of offences,” compared with baseline numbers, after prisoners took supplements for just two weeks.]

Somehow, those vitamins worked around the claim that the prisoners had defective brains, which predisposed them to EVIL, and impaired neural circuits, which blocked their empathetic responses.

But mainstream researchers aren’t interested in the slightest. They want to force brains into new shapes.

That’s their job.

On behalf of planners of a new world.

Guns: the one-size-fits-all solution is no solution

Guns: the one-size-fits-all solution is no solution

by Jon Rappoport

February 26, 2018

The novelist William Burroughs once wrote: “After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn’t do it. I sure as hell wouldn’t want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.”

The overwhelming number of people who own guns in America aren’t killers. Anyone can, with a little digging, discover where most of the guns crimes are happening—and that’s where law-enforcement should focus their efforts. Trying to disarm the whole country is not only unworkable, it’s targeting the wrong people.

A one-size-fits-all strategy is the work of bureaucrats in a tyranny.

Vaccinate everyone—despite the fact that, by definition, those who are vaccinated should be automatically protected from those “germ carriers” who aren’t. And by the way, research shows that vaccinated people shed (spread) the viruses for which they’ve vaccinated.

Diagnose millions of people with a whole set of standardly defined mental disorders, despite the fact that every individual is unique and different. And by the way, there are NO defining diagnostic tests for ANY official mental disorder. No blood, saliva, urine tests. No brain scans. No genetic assays.

Educate millions and millions of schoolchildren in public government schools by programming them with the same set of “progressive” values, as if they’re all identical automatons in need of mind control.

Carry out wall-to-wall surveillance on the whole population, as if that is the only way to spot a small number of terrorists.

Go to war against major segments of a whole country (e.g., Afghanistan), as if that is the only way to root out a small number of terrorists.

Instead of searching out and vigorously prosecuting mega-corporations (with long jail sentences for executives) who actually pollute and poison the soil, water, and air, assume that the business of America is business across the board, and ignore the “side effects.”

And conversely, when the bureaucracy is rendered so thin it can’t adequately screen and vet the huge number of immigrants rushing into America, promote a policy of open borders so everyone can come in (because “they’re all good people”)—thus reflecting the values taught to the young in government schools. And say this is the meaning of America.

Surveying this list and adding your own examples, you might conclude that entrenched centralized power is actively trying to destroy the country.

And then many people would think you’ve gone off the rails.

And magically, those are the same people who’ve been given a lifetime of indoctrination in the policy of one-size-fits-all, because such a policy is humane and good and serves a brighter future for all, for everyone, for the Collective.

Amen.
