Parkland FL Shooting: How to End the “Gun Debate” Forever

Editor’s Note: The February 14, 2018 Parkland Florida school shooting incident and its emotional aftermath has sparked vociferous calls (e.g. here, here and here) by today’s partisan press and political press groups to stand up against “gun rights extremists and industry lobbyists.” The event has been cynically seized upon as a platform for coordinated public relations efforts targeting the 2018 midterm elections and pressuring President Trump to cede ground on what is perhaps the Democratic Party’s most disingenuous rallying cries. For example,

Written in the wake of the Sandy Hook School shooting, this important article by geopolitical analyst Tony Cartalucci presents an argument that major US news media should provide debate on–if only their corporate overlords weren’t intent on taking the lowroad of once again terrorizing the public. It highlights a 2011 study by the United Nations  in an effort to place the true causes of violence and realities of gun ownership in a broader and overall more forthright set of socioeconomic and geopolitical perspectives.-JFT

UN’s 2011 Homicide Study – .pdf available here.

January 11, 2013 (LD) Violence is driven by socioeconomic and cultural factors, not the mere presence of firearms. The statistics clearly show this, and the very same statistics manipulated by so-called “gun control advocates” irrefutably contradicts their agenda’s premise when put into proper context. Worse yet, the obsession over gun control sidelines the urgency needed to address issues like poor education and dismal economic prospects for those living in the most destitute and violence-stricken neighborhoods in our country.

UK vs. Japan: 2 Unarmed Societies, 2 Vastly Different Homicide Rates. 

Despite both nations being disarmed and having almost no “gun-related homicides,” according to UN statistics*, Japan and the UK still have an astronomical gap in homicide rates. Why? A visit to either country reveals an entirely different culture, education system, infrastructure, and socioeconomic paradigm. This is why despite Japan having a much larger population, even total homicides are lower than the comparatively more violent but less populated United Kingdom – with homicide rates in the UK nearly 3 times higher than those in Japan.

Constructing Lee Harvey Oswald

Editor’s Note: Mass media and leading officials in government play central roles in presenting and interpreting complex events to the public. Substantial evidence from the historical record now reveals how during times of crisis the institution of American journalism cannot be trusted, for it collectively acts to further the often anti-democratic interests of powerful governing institutions.

Thought studiously avoided by most professionally-trained historians, the JFK assassination remains among the most studied events in US history. This is primarily due to non-academic researchers and authors who have vigorously sought to revisit what actually transpired on November 22, 1963. As a result of such efforts well over half of the American population has rejected the Warren Commission and corporate media’s untenable conspiracy theory that Lee Harvey Oswald was Kennedy’s sole assassin.

Still, the narratives of most complex events established by the nation’s storytellers are typically those that most powerfully (mis)inform the public mind. Note, for example, how in NBC News’ anchorman Frank McGee below insists as the report breaks, “The assassin is believed to have fired from a building overlooking the parade route.” Likewise in the immediate chaos of such events certain facts and observations contradicting official storylines, later suppressed or dispatched to the memory hole by academics and investigatory commissions alike, momentarily rise to inform the historical record and thereby alternative interpretations. Today’s internet technology has allowed for the collaboration and rapid dissemination of what once would have taken years to accomplish.-JFT

On November 22, 1963 President John F. Kennedy was killed in a crossfire of bullets while riding in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas. Over the course of the next 72 hours US government sources and major news media presented false and misleading information to cultivate in the public mind the notion that one Lee Harvey Oswald was the sole assassin.

Extensive research and documentation indicate that Oswald was only a “patsy” in the event, having been maneuvered, captured, and presented to the world as the lone culprit.

As New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison observes, the evidence available through the time of Oswald’s autopsy indicated that he “had killed no one, but it made no great difference. The world had been informed that he was the assassin, and that is, for governmental purposes, the same as being the assassin. In either case,” Garrision continues, “there is no difference in the funeral ceremony. Power structures have no compassion. Consequently, what a man has done or has not done is not of any great importance. It is what the government says he has done that is important.”[1]

In 1966 the National Broadcasting Company published Seventy Hours and Thirty Minutes: A Minute-By-Minute Log from the Assassination of President Kennedy Through His Funeral. In this compilation of broadcast transcripts, excerpts of which are reproduced below, one may observe how the Oswald personage–alienated youth, drifter, defector, “Marxist”–took shape over the course of three days to become the enigmatic fixture in the popular historical memory that is unquestioningly maintained by corporate media and proper academics alike.

Oswald is one of many figures to be tried in the court of public opinion long before the facts of their respective cases were gathered and judiciously assessed. Not unlike more recent villains–Timothy McVeigh, Osama Bin Laden, James Holmes, and Adam Lanza–Oswald was methodically designed over the course of several years and subsequently exhibited to secure expedient narrative closure to one of the nation’s greatest tragedies.

The House of Frankenstein–FDA and GMO Salmon

By F. William Engdahl
(November 24, 2015)

After more than three decades of researching and writing on themes of mankind’s inclination to abuse and harm our fellow human beings, I rarely receive something so shocking I have difficulty to write about it. A recent decision of the United States Government’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to permit commercialization of the first-ever GMO animal for human consumption, despite an unprecedented 2 million opposing citizen petitions, and despite opposition of 40 members of Congress, more than 300 environmental, consumer, health and animal welfare organizations, salmon and fishing groups and even supermarket chains,[1] is such an instance. It astonishes me.

On November 19, 2015 the FDA approved the commercialization of a genetically modified animal for the first time anywhere in the world. Hello, GMO salmon! Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the House of Frankenstein. Please read on, as you likely will not believe the level of malicious insanity at President Obama’s FDA today.
The original House of Frankenstein Hollywood film of the 1940’s was based on a novel by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. It dealt with a fictional human cloning by a scientist, Victor Frankenstein, who makes an experiment in human cloning in which he creates an unexpected monster, cloned with the brain of a convicted murderer.

Let’s Repeal the Second Amendment Redux

Quoted from “IBM and the Corruption of Justice in America”, Earl Carey, Bismarck House, 1992, Chapter 36,  page 303.[1]

“KURT EICHENWALD: LET’S REPEAL THE SECOND AMENDMENT

The amendment has nothing—nothing—to do with modern America. We need to get rid of it and try again with an amendment that makes sense.”

The above article was published about 20 days after the alleged Sandy Hook School shooting December 14, 2012.  It is a criticism of the tortured wording of the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

In this article Eichenwald shows he knows how to dissect this problem in semantics into its many parts and do a good job of investigative journalism researching this important subject.  He demonstrates critical abilities to raise questions and seek answers for apparently contradictory claims.

All this is good.  His conclusion is that the 2nd Amendment is so poorly written it should be abolished in its present form and replaced with one which would conform to conditions in our country today as opposed to over 2 centuries ago.  He claims he is not against gun ownership by individuals but only seeks to restrict them allegedly to prevent gun violence in schools and other places in society.

FISA Memo Links DNC-Sponsored Dossier to 2016 Election Conspiracy

Trump: Dems “Should Be Ashamed Of Themselves”

Bryan York
Washington Examiner

The House Intelligence Committee has released its controversial memo outlining alleged abuses of secret surveillance by the FBI and Justice Department in the Trump-Russia investigation. Here are some key points:

* The Steele dossier formed an essential part of the initial and all three renewal FISA applications against Carter Page.

 * Andrew McCabe confirmed that no FISA warrant would have been sought from the FISA Court without the Steele dossier information.

* The four FISA surveillance applications were signed by, in various combinations, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Sally Yates, Dana Boente, and Rod Rosenstein.

CIA and the Corporate Media: The Case of Kurt Eichenwald

Known For Partisan Attacks,
“Deeply wired into the intelligence community”

Yet another harbinger of corporate news media’s continued demise is evident when a familiar mainstream journalist with admitted ties to US intelligence agencies plays covert roles in the issues and events he claims to report objectively on. The case of Kurt Eichenwald suggests how the CIA’s famous Operation Mockingbird is alive and well in the twenty-first century.

On December 16, 2015 FAU administrators terminated this author on pretextual grounds. Less than 24 hours beforehand the same school officials received an inflammatory email from Newsweek‘s Kurt Eichenwald, among the internet’s most avid gun control advocates and anti-Trump crusaders who boasts of being “deeply wired into the intelligence community.”

In the query, one of thousands of emails produced by FAU during discovery, the fiercely partisan Eichenberg more than subtly pressures the FAU administration on Tracy’s public speech concerning the Sandy Hook massacre event, further suggesting that Tracy is mentally ill, guilty of criminal harassment, and may pose a legal liability to the university.

Eichenwald’s email was received by the university’s chief public affairs officer and immediately forwarded to FAU President John Kelly, General Counsel David Kian, and Provost Gary Perry. Perry forwarded the email to Associate General Counsel Lawrence Glick and Vice Provost Diane Alperin. Less than 24 hours thereafter Alperin informed this author he would be fired.

Subject: Interview request re: James Tracy

Mr. Hull,

My name is Kurt Eichenwald and I am a senior writer with Newsweek and a contributing editor with Vanity Fair. I am currently working on an article about people in positions of authority who are advocates of bizarre conspiracy theories or advance ideas far outside the mainstream that do not appear to supported by rational evidence.

As you may know, Professor James Tracy of your school has been harassing parents whose children were slaughtered at Sandy Hook. He is suggesting that their children never existed, that they have been bribed and/or received compensation to pretend their children existed, and that – in at least once instance – a five year old killed Sandy Hook was in fact killed two years later in the Peshawar Army School shooting in Pakistan.

I have several questions that I would like to discuss with you:

1. Do any other members of the faculty or administration also advance these theories of Mr. Tracy?
2. Has any official research been conducted by anyone at the university through the use of university funds to determine that the Sandy Hook attack was fake?
3. Does President Kelly subscribe to the belief that the Sandy Hook attack did not occur?
4. As you may be aware, Mr. Tracy has been contacting parents of children killed at Sandy Hook, calling them “so-called parents” and generally harassing them. Are you aware if this has been done during school hours or while using school computers? Does this conform with policy of the school
4. Does Mr. Tracy have tenure?
5. Have there been any complaints from students, parents or other stakeholders in FAU regarding concerns about Mr. Tracy’s mental stability?
6. If neither the school nor President Kelly subscribes to the belief that Sandy Hook never occurred, is there concern on the part of the school that allowing a man who may be mentally unstable to work on campus could place students or faculty in danger?
7. Has administrators school held any discussions about the potential liability Mr. Tracy might pose if the Sandy Hook parents decide to sue the school for facilitating his harassment?

Finally, under the state open records act, I am requesting all emails sent or received by any member of the office of the president regarding Mr. Tracy since the date of the Sandy Hook attack.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best,

Kurt Eichenwald

This Does Not Represent the Views of the University

Robert Mueller Involved in FBI Release of Deceptive Statements about Sarasota 9/11 Probe

Dan Christensen 
FloridaBulldog.org
(January 18, 2018)

A recent government court filing is raising questions about then-FBI Director Robert Mueller’s involvement in the public release of deceptive official statements about a secret FBI investigation of Sarasota Saudis with apparent ties to the 9/11 hijackers.

The misleading statements, issued by FBI officials in Miami and Tampa, were made within days of a September 2011 Florida Bulldog story disclosing the existence of the investigation and reporting that Congress had been kept in the dark about it.

The statements sought to discredit the story, asserting that agents had found no connection between the Sarasota Saudi family and the 9/11 plot. In fact, the FBI’s own files contained at least three reports that said the opposite: that agents found “many connections” between the family and “individuals associated with the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001.” The FBI released those reports later amid continuing Freedom of Information (FOI) litigation brought by Florida Bulldog.

Mueller, now the special counsel overseeing the investigation into alleged Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, is referenced in a document index created in late November by the FBI at the direction of U.S. District Judge William J. Zloch of Fort Lauderdale. The index was compiled after Zloch asked the FBI to explain where in its complex file system it had located about 80 pages released earlier in the six-year-old FOI case.

Legalizing Pretext: How an American Public University Conspired to Beat the First Amendment

… and Got Away With It

By Louis Leo IV Esq.
People Over Politics
Florida Civil Rights Coalition

In 2016, former Florida Atlantic University (“FAU”) Professor James Tracy filed a civil rights lawsuit against FAU following the termination of his tenured employment. If one relies on mainstream press reports of his firing they may conclude the action was justified because of Tracy’s alleged “harassment” of Sandy Hook parents, and/or his failure to comply with the school’s “outside activities” policy.

Yet at its heart, Tracy’s case has grave implications for the First Amendment rights of virtually every US academic and government employee. Through their own repeated admissions FAU administrators justified Tracy’s termination by arguing that Tracy failed to “disclose” his constitutionally protected political speech for university approval under a vague and confusing school policy.

If this precedent stands unchallenged it will allow virtually any government agency to police employees’ extracurricular speech or political activities, and accordingly discipline workers whose views are deemed objectionable.

What do you know about the James Tracy case?

If you get your news and information from “mainstream” media outlets and their affiliates and partners in fake news around the globe, you probably know nothing about the case.

Or if anything, you might think you know some crazy teacher said nobody died at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and lost his job. So what?

Well, if you think Professor Tracy is crazy, or was out of line in his blog postings about Sandy Hook, Tracy is far from alone in casting doubt about the official story. In fact, 24% of Americans surveyed in 2016 acknowledged the massacre may have been faked to promote gun control—a number which will undoubtedly grow as more and more Americans discover the vastly censored body of research and documentaries like “We Need To Talk About Sandy Hook”.

Notwithstanding the truth about Sandy Hook, or other government conspiracies, what if I told you that Professor Tracy didn’t do anything wrong?

What if I told you that government officials at FAU broke their own rules, and the First Amendment when they disciplined Professor Tracy?

For those who don’t care about freedom of speech, you need read no further.

For those who understand and appreciate the fact that FAU, a major American public university, isn’t the NFL, and that its government officials aren’t allowed to conspire to beat the First Amendment and fire a government employee because of what they say as a private citizen about a matter of public concern, please keep reading.

Professor James Tracy, who has a Ph.D. in mass communications, was an award-winning, tenured communications professor at a government-run university. He was a good teacher who received outstanding and excellent annual evaluations from his supervisors while teaching at FAU for over a decade.

Don’t take my word for it. Read his FAU performance evaluations.

Dozens Of New Crime Scene Photos Released From Vegas Shooting Add More Questions

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department finally released a substantial amount of information this week in the form of 28 crime scene photographs. The photos show the alleged shooter’s room, vehicle, security setup, and even the infamous note. While these photos give us more insight into the shooting, they also leave us with many more questions.

The first photos in the series are not too damning, but they do show the extensive preparations taken by the shooter to prevent entry into the room.
