~ “I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan.
Once again, those who support gun control without looking doing their own homework are surprised to learn that the facts are not as presented to by those who want to eliminate the Right to Bear Arms by any means necessary.
They say those who don’t pay attention to history are destined to repeat it. It seems like even though humans have paid attention, they somehow think the same things that failed in the past, like prohibition and communism, will magically work now.
Alcohol kills almost three times as many Americans as guns. Last year, about 33,000 people died of gunshot-related injuries, including those who shot themselves; suicide. When removing those who killed themselves only (again, suicide), that number drops to 15,549, by even anti-gun activists estimates. To put that in perspective, this year’s flu and the vaccine to “prevent” said flu is more deadly. So far, it’s been killing an estimated 4,000 Americans per week. That’s roughly 16,000 per month, a number already higher than last year’s total “gun deaths” which include justified homicides (or self-defense.) You don’t have to be a genius at math to understand that “gun violence” isn’t really the epidemic the media wants you to believe.
So where’s society’s outrage over alcohol abuse? Why aren’t kids marching for alcohol control? Because prohibition doesn’t work. People who want to break the law and drink will do so. People snort cocaine regardless of the fact that it’s illegal. Where is society’s outrage at the right thing?
“Where are all the millions of dollars and campaign contributions and television ads trying to save people’s lives from the dangers of alcohol?” Joseph asks. “This is huge because we have to look at the facts. And the facts are: while it’s awful that these events take place, they’re anomalies in the grand scheme of things. Alcoholism is not an anomaly. It’s very present, ever present in our society and substance abuse is getting worse and worse and worse because the root cause isn’t being tackled.” The root cause is pain and voids within a person. The problem is that social engineering has created a god for people and that god is the government. And it’s a very poor substitute for actual spirituality, says Joseph.
Americans don’t “pull themselves up by their own bootstraps” and rely on their ingenuity and faith and individual strengths. Americans now rely on the god created by social engineering: government. Simply suggest that humans could run their own lives just fine without a government, and most people will act as if you actually insulted their god.
“Freedom is not free,” says Joseph. “Freedom comes at a great cost. It takes a lot to maintain freedom….people are being pushed to the point of rebellion in this country and on purpose.”
I’m not a student of school shootings, except to take note of the shooters, many of whom, from Virginia Tech to Sandy Hook in Connecticut to even Dylan Roof in South Carolina, were mentally ill but able to get a gun anyway, only not so much because of their easy availability as to fatal flaws in the bureaucratic system that were designed to prevent the mentally unstable to get weapons. Bureaucracies do that, which is why there can never be any kind of gun “control”.
A decade has gone by since Virginia Tech and most of the gaps in mental health awareness from that event remain unfilled because the Left’s anti-gun lobby continue to keep their eyes fixed on solving a problem of their ethereal Utopian world of World Order, totally disarming a constitutionally-protected armed populace.
As long as fractures in mental health protections fail, they can continue to keep their eye on the larger prize.
So it will be with the shooting in Broward County, Florida, at Margery Stoneman Douglas High School near Ft Lauderdale. We know where the media and the Left will take this; 1) denying access to guns, and 2) a failure of due diligence by local officials at the school and local police to identify several hundreds of thousands 18-20 year old kids of looking and dressing scary, talking big on social media, making broad statements about shooting and mayhem, but falling short of “legal threats” (as the FBI found with Cruz), and in some way interdict them.
Leftists believe anyone who disagrees with them, much less picks up a gun, is mentally deficient or mentally disturbed. This in turn justifies some sort of physical constraints and invasion of privacy.
I’m not sure how long it will take for public pressure to cause the Parkland school and police to kneel at the foot of political correctness and admit that they should implement new programs to more quickly identify angry young kids, white males at least, so as to give the rest of the community a heads-up every-time that kid walks down the street.
I’m sure that’s what the political Left would like to see happen, which is how they see mass shootings; an opportunity for some small victory[…]
Franz Kafka’s “The Trial” – Film, Literature & The New World Order (screenshot)
What are the odds that social media bias against Conservatives has elevated to the point that Twitter (and Facebook) used its algorithms to engineer a honey pot, minefield of alleged Russian bots to ensnare Conservatives?
What if bad actors among the alt-left are being paid to double as Russian bots, follow, like and retweet Conservative content again, to ensnare Conservatives?
Why? To pave the way for Twitter (and Facebook) to purge Conservative accounts before the 2018 mid-term election season kicks into high gear and the 2020 presidential election season? It is possible that I am overthinking this but I doubt it.
Before you read any further, note that I am not questioning the events that occurred last week in Parkland, Florida but I am questioning the players who in their manipulation of the victims and the families are doing what Progressives do best, i.e., never letting a good crisis go to waste.
This morning, I awoke to 80* less Twitter followers while other Conservatives with Twitter accounts awoke to 800+ less followers in addition to finding themselves locked out of their Twitter accounts last evening (Tuesday, February 21, 2018).
The lockouts appeared to haven been synchronized with yesterday’s breaking news reports that Russian bots since last week’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were collectively spreading fake news.
As a result, Twitter locked out and/or suspended thousands of account under the guise that the accounts were Russian bots who for several days now tweeted and retweeted under the hash tags #guncontrolnow, #Parklandshooting, #gunreformnow, #DavidHogg and #CNN.
The title of the Wired News’ report gave one the impression that Russian trolls or bots were solely pro-gun, i.e., a not so subtle way of inferring that Russian trolls or bots are pushing pro-Trump, pro-gun, pro-alt-right news.
In the wake of Wednesday’s Parkland, Florida, school shooting, which resulted in 17 deaths, troll and bot-tracking sites reported an immediate uptick in related tweets from political propaganda bots and Russia-linked Twitter accounts. Hamilton 68, a website created by Alliance for Securing Democracy, tracks Twitter activity from accounts it has identified as linked to Russian influence campaigns. As of morning, shooting-related terms dominated the site’s trending hashtags and topics, including Parkland, guncontrolnow, Florida, guncontrol, and Nikolas Cruz, the name of the alleged shooter. Popular trending topics among the bot network include shooter, NRA, shooting, Nikolas, Florida, and teacher[…]
Twitter’s Deep State Alliance – Control the Narrative By Any Means
I suspect that it was the tweets about alleged Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student, David Hogg, who many suspect is a crisis actor or at least not who he presents himself to be that sent Twitter over the edge.
Hogg is also the son of a former FBI agent as well which in this day’s climate and the findings of this nation’s beloved deep state only served to raise more questions about Hogg’s agenda. The fact that he is well-scripted and fake news CNN’s favorite does not help.
Yeah, sure. What better way to prove one’s legitimacy than to plead one’s case on America’s premier fake news channel, CNN and to be interviewed by, of all people, CIA operative and front man, Anderson Cooper with one’s father, a former FBI agent by his son’s side.
Don Jr did NOT “Like” a tweet containing a “conspiracy theory” regarding the school shooting.
Dog whistle for “Who are you going to believe? Me, or your lying eyes?”
Anti-Gun, Anti-Second Amendment groups and Communist Media Complex act to Control the Narrative
Determined to silence the voices of Americans unwilling to give up their firearms, the Second Amendment, not buying a narrative that has been repeatedly shoved down our throats the past nine years, Twitter locked down and/or began purging (a) thousands of twitter accounts and (b) their followers.
Why? To control the narrative.
What else did these accounts have in common? Many, correction, the majority from what I can tell are legitimate Conservative twitter accounts belonging to those who called out the dog and pony show. Enter this Wednesday morning: #Twitterlockout which began trending this morning.
Alleged Russian bot, MicroMeatPatty (@TEN_GOP_1) was removed (see screenshot below).
If you noticed, MicroMeatPatty’s Russia location, as “Moscow, Russia,” allow me to point out that left-wing accounts who tweeted under the same hashtags and appear themselves to be a bot, if not Russian bot remain untouched. In fact, I found at least one other account that appears to be a Russian bot or troll, location “Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia” that as of this moment that is still live.
Meet LaGunaBeachAntifa9 (@LagBeachAntifa9), a Progressive “Russian bot” or so he claims.
Russian Bot or Honey Pot?
According to LaGunaBeachAntifa9 (@LagBeachAntifa9)’s profile, he or she is from “Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia” yet the account has not been removed. Even more suspicious is that this account which happens to be only a few days old has only one follower. (Note to self: “Unfollow Anonymous.”)
What are the odds that Twitter and Facebook have created their own bots or have secured the assistance of Progressives (Antifa?) to lure in Conservatives like lambs to the slaughter.
1. Since when does clicking on the location beneath a Twitter profile lead to other tweets from the same location? Clicking on a website linked to a Twitter account almost always leads one to the designated website connected to that account or as I experienced a few hours ago, “malware.
When clicking on, “Krasnoyarsk, Russia” one is immediately taken to a page containing tweets in Russian, Ukrainian and English. Most of it appears to be spam or millennial gibberish and as I pointed out, one or two of the links lead to malware.
2. What if the existence of similar profiles is a honey pot intended to ensnare Conservative accounts that would enable Twitter to allege that these accounts violated Twitter’s rules and terms of service? The endgame of which would be to discredit, silence and ultimately purge Conservatives from Twitter.
*As I conclude this essay, 30 my followers have increased by been re-instated to my Twitter account.
Shortly after the news broke of a shooting in which countless were wounded and killed, the face of David Hogg, said to be a high school student at Stoneman Douglas High School, Broward County, Florida popped up on the television screen.
My response to Hogg was one of unease and as it turns out, rightfully so. This has Michael Bloomberg written all over it.
Is it a coincidence that Hogg who as it turns out, is quite comfortable with the Progressive lexicon, the use of Alinskyite tactics is anti-Trump, anti-Republican, anti-Second Amendment has remained front and center in the headlines since last week’s shooting.
There is more, so much more. Let the manipulation, guilt-tripping and fake news begin.
The student movement March for Our Lives is sponsored by Everytown and is part of a larger leftist movement. Everytown is the Bloomberg organization that now has offices in every state hoping to gut the Second Amendment. That doesn’t mean there aren’t other funders and promoters. The students they are exploiting the movement certainly are rehearsed.
What makes this especially interesting is this is allegedly a grassroots movement organized by students at the Stoneman Douglas High School in the heart of liberal Broward County, Florida. One of the ringleaders is a senior named David Hogg.
Who is David Hogg?
David Hogg was one of the main speakers for the anti-gun students after the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The building that was hit by crazed gunman Nikolas Cruz was the Freshman building. Mr. Hogg reported on Twitter that he will graduate in 2018. Hogg, a senior, claims he hid in the Freshman building and lost some of his friends[…]
After the horrific attack on Republican lawmakers earlier this week, two very familiar liberal narrative soon began. The first was, of course gun control. Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe went straight to the Well of Failed Gun Control Solutions. Colion Noir took the governor to task.
Noir is correct. Gun control is used by people with either no solutions, or people with no intentions to actually solve any problems. Never let a good crisis go to waste right Rahm Emanuel?
