Perhaps Not All “Failures” in the Florida School Shooting Were What We Think

One thing is certain. Every time there is a mass shooting or a mass killing event, there are always more questions left unanswered than answered to most people’s satisfaction. It is no different with events in Parkland, Florida.

Let’s take a look at a USA Today article written by Glenn Reynolds called “Florida shooting yet another government failure to keep us safe.

Before we completely blame the government for failures, isn’t it time to point out, again, that there is a huge failure of the public to look to government to keep us safe? Enough said.

Have we turned on our self-appointed “heroes” in law enforcement? It seems that after 9-11 cops and first responders could do no wrong…with a few exceptions.

Glenn Reynolds rightfully, in my opinion, describes all the failures that took place before, during, and after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass murder in Parkland, Florida. He writes: “From the FBI, to local law enforcement, to the schools, everyone failed. There was failure early, there was failure in the middle, and there was failure late. And no one has taken responsibility.”

It’s difficult to deny any of this. But let me raise some questions that might hold meaning to what is precisely going on that few know about and the majority refuses to consider.

Reynolds presents to readers, whether intended or not, a common theme. “We have more government, at all levels, than we’ve ever had before. Yet failures like this keep happening. The FBI, after all, missed the Tsarnaevs (who committed the Boston Marathon bombing) despite being warned by the Russian government. It missed the 9/11 attacks even though it was investigating Zacarias Moussaoui — agents investigating Moussaoui hit so many roadblocks that they joked that Osama bin Laden must have had a mole in the Bureau HQ. And, of course, the San Bernardino shooters and Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen escaped the net as well.

Is the FBI really this incompetent? I thought they were everyone’s “heroes” looking out for you.

As Reynolds points out in his writing, “…Then, when Cruz finally began shooting up the school, the failures became even more outrageous. A Broward County sheriff’s deputy — weirdly, the same Deputy Scot Peterson who apparently ignored the Instagram threat and also refused to cooperate with investigators — was on the scene, but cowered in the parking lot instead of taking action.”

He also adds something from CNN: “Then CNN reported that not only did Peterson stay out of the building, three other deputies hid behind cars instead of intervening.”

Again I ask, I thought these guys were all “heroes” to you?

But, seriously. I have never thought it was ever a good idea that we, in honest attempts to prevent living in a police state, should idolize those in uniform with guns and authority that can make our lives miserable in the wink of an eye. With this thought, I must say I would be one of the last to defend law enforcement.

Having said so, are we to believe that 4 police officers were afraid to enter the building and that 3 of them “hid behind cars?” I don’t buy that story. Cops may be many things to many people but generally speaking, they are not chicken to walk into a battle scene. With probably the rare exception, cops become cops for the very nature of what they do. They love a position of authority over others and relish the opportunity to live up to their billing of “hero.”

If I’m correct, then why didn’t they enter the building and/or try to do something to stop the further bloodshed?

As more stories surface, for whatever value they have, we hear the same things we have heard in the mass killings noted above: Officers waited outside; ordered to stand down; eye-witnesses claiming there was more than one gunman; one student claimed to walk out of the school with alleged murderer Nicholas Cruz, etc.

Perhaps all those stories are a bunch of bull pucky…or they are all true – perhaps some are true. We will never know.

So at least can we ask the obvious (to me) questions?

Question One – Is our FBI so inept that they have nothing more to show for our billions in tax dollars than failure after failure? It seems they can report they found a fly that came to America from Russia on the ass end of a horse, programmed to “fix” our elections, but they can’t properly investigate all the events that led up to the mass murders named above?

I don’t buy that horse manure either.

So, a combination of supposed chicken cops in Parkland, Florida and an FBI so incompetent it probably fails to keep toilet paper on hand in their offices, we are being told is a simple failure. Hmmm, I wonder.

Question Two – Who knew what, when, and from whom did they know it? Did the FBI, as with all the other mass killing events, know beforehand and/or were a part of those events? Were the “chicken” cops only doing what they were told to do because someone higher up was also under orders?

Question Three – If this was a conspiracy of some sort, what might a reason be? The simple answer would be guns. I have contended for many years that the only and last roadblock to total tyranny and a dictatorial rule is guns. I’ve also said they still aren’t in a position to simply take our guns from us. Instead, they must find other ways, little by little.

Remember? It was on September 11, 2012, when “terrorists” attacked the U.S. Diplomat Embassy in Benghazi, Libya, killing the ambassador and others. What was the first thing out of the mouths of our corrupt government terrorists? Remember? It was a video said to be mocking Islam and that “provoked” an attack. I thought we learned a lesson from that but evidently not.

What was the first thing out of the mouths of many after the Parkland, Florida shooting? Damned the NRA! All attention was deflected onto the NRA, that iconic false strongarm of the Second Amendment. The NRA provoked an innocent attack on students. Nothing else is to blame. It was a choreographed deflection as was the video used in the Benghazi attack.

Question Four – How many more of these events will it take before you will either become a complete slave with no rights left to you, or you will demand answers to uncomfortable questions?

If nothing more than choosing to take the easy way out and accept the all-around failures of governments theory, then people might want to consider who it is that they choose to make their idols and heroes.

Stupid is as stupid does.

Florida Shooting: Let’s Blame That European Socialist Wave and Compare It to The Simpsons

In case you hadn’t figured it out yet, I’m not a very big fan of the NRA. I’m not a very big fan of any of these so-called gun rights advocates because I don’t see them as such. Some choose to believe that if it hadn’t been for the NRA, there would be no more Second Amendment. I might choose to believe that if it hadn’t been for the NRA (and others) we would still have a real Second Amendment. Do you want servitude or do you want to be free from the chains of the fascists? You decide.

It was perhaps 15 years ago when I received a phone call from the NRA. This was a time in my life when I used to be a member of the NRA. During this same moment in time, I had been thinking whether or not I wanted to support the NRA any longer for various reasons – the biggest being that I was beginning to see them as slowly eroding my right to self-protection while getting rich.

Back to the phone call. The guy on the other end, probably a nobody doing his job of recruiting and retaining membership, began to beg me to send him some money and renew my membership. In exchange, the NRA would give me a prescription to their magazine, member card, a blanket with an NRA logo on it, stickers, and a “free” duffle bag, also with an NRA logo on it. I quickly did some math and realized the items I was going to receive exceeded in cost the money they would get for my membership renewal.

I brought this to the attention of the solicitor and his retort was very revealing. He told me he didn’t care about my membership dues – “The NRA had enough “big” donors that it didn’t need my dues money.” All he was interested in was my paid membership so that the NRA could add me as a number to their rolls to use for political leverage.

And thus, my friends is the backbone of the politically-based (biased) NRA.

Wayne LaPierre and Dana Loesch, both from the NRA, spoke in an unscheduled event before the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) convention in Maryland, attempting to show outrage that anyone would attack the NRA for the school shooting in Florida.

It’s so commonplace these days, groups with names like CPAC, nobody bothers to understand what the name means. But, I cannot get mired in this debate.

What wasn’t said by these two, as well as others at the convention, may be more important as what was said. LaPierre distracted everyone with his comments about how the European Socialist Movement was taking over this country. Wake up Mr. NRA. That socialistic movement has been on display in this country for a long time and guess what? You are part of it! Fascism is always the vehicle that gets you to communism/socialism. All aboard!

He blamed the Democrats for not doing something about promoting the growing destruction of the Second Amendment. Did you catch that written this way? He was quoted as saying, “…to work to reduce gun violence” and “…not working with conservatives and activists enough to address mental health as a concern and to put such checks into the database system to prevent dangerous people from getting access to guns.”

I wonder if there exist any who understand this pushing by the NRA is nothing more than another way to strip us of our rights. Nothing the NRA, Trump, or any of the other fascists are proposing will do anything to change what took place or from happening again. If they believed as they say, why are they part of the problem and not the solution?

Dana Loesch blamed the “legacy media” because the “legacy media” blames the NRA. Open my eyes that I might see, glimpses of Truth…….

And, of course, both sides (?) blamed the failure of law enforcement. Really?

Showing the world that he is a part of the Global Power Structure, LaPierre reminded everyone at CPAC to: “…be anxious, and you should be frightened,” saying that if they (the European Socialists) take power our freedoms will be lost and America will be changed forever. WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE! DAMNED THAT LEGACY MEDIA!!!

Be Vewy, Vewy Scared!

Damn the “European Socialists!” What about our own government, our own law enforcement, our own school departments, out churches, our own decadent, immoral society? Nobody dares utter a word about the real failures of this nation. Instead, they, including the NRA, will throw up distractions so we don’t have to address the issue.

Also speaking at this convention, was Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a self-proclaimed “man of God.” Blinded by his own misled lifestyle, one that has caused the destruction of a decent and moral society, attempted to make a correlation between The Simpsons, a cartoon television show, and the Republicans and Democrats as they pertain to gun control.

His, and the rest of American society’s failure to see the filthy, immoral content of such a television show (and it’s his favorite you know), is just but one symptom of a larger failure of society to maintain any kind of moral compass. Because of this, children are mass murdering children in our schools.

Fearful to address the truth, drives us to distractions, blaming everything under the sun except ourselves and our own failures. We live in a gutless world with no longer a conscience, say nothing of Yahweh’s Spirit of Truth within us. We are all insane and our own insanity is driving us to become as…In the Days of Noah.

I’m tired of repeating this, but I am compelled.

Parkland, Florida: There May Be Devil in the Detail

Because we live in a Post Normal world, a person is now guilty until proven innocent and proving such is next to impossible when you consider all high-profile cases are tried in the Media.

As part of the fallout of the shooting in Parkland, Florida, the Media and even the president of the United States, blamed the event on the FBI and law enforcement in general because they did nothing to prevent this tragedy long before it happened…or did they?

What if law enforcement knew all this stuff about this person everyone calls “Cruz?” What if they knew it all and was helpless to do anything about it? What if local laws and school policy prohibited law enforcement from doing anything in order to make crime rates look lower than they really were?

This article might shed some light on that.
