Media Blackout on School Teachers Organizing Gun Control Putsch

By James F. Tracy

Following the February 14, 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman High School a seemingly spontaneous student movement against gun control emerged from Broward County Florida. The students involved in this movement received widespread coverage via major US media outlets. A March 14 “National School Walkout” received national news coverage as school districts across the US effectively compelled their student constituencies to demonstrate for gun control. None of the overwhelmingly positive reportage hinted at the fact that this “movement” has been cultivated and steered by the highest ranking Democratic Party operatives.

On March 21 independent journalist Laura Loomer obtained further confirmation of the astro-turf roots of “Parkland Strong” when leaked audio of a meeting emerged where Broward public school teacher Laura Miller can be heard jovially coaching MarchForOurLives student participants on Democratic Party gun control “talking points”, planned secret meetings with Democratic Party leaders Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi, encouraging the students to “raise hell” with President Donald Trump, and suggesting that “Jews” control the nation’s capitol.

As this author noted weeks ago, from the start the allegedly spontaneous student movement that arose shortly after the tragic Parkland shooting appeared to be influenced by powerful Democratic Party operatives, including Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, in addition to lower-ranking Dems like Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, who advocated for gun control in a February 22 “Town Hall” event televised by CNN.

Loomer’s story reveals how a public school district and their employees are directly involved in coaching their students to partake in political lobbying and public demonstrations for one of the Democratic Party’s foremost campaign issues. Parents entrust their children to teachers who are expected to have expertise in their fields. Parents further expect all educators to be role models for their children.

With the above in mind the revelation of a major school district and their teachers inculcating students with political beliefs and motivating them to advocate on policies they have limited understanding of constitutes a major scandal–indeed one that any competent journalist would recognize and report on as widely as her editors would allow.

Yet web searches reveal the exact opposite: a far-reaching blackout of Loomer’s March 21 story, the circulation of which was limited to the alternative news media, regularly disparaged as “fake news” by their mainstream commercial counterparts.

 

On the other hand, as of this writing there is an abundance of coverage on the March 24, 2018 “March For Our Lives” event coordinated by Democratic Party operatives and enthusiasts, including Broward County school teachers.

By blacking out Loomer’s bombshell story major US news media further prove their censorial nature and continued decline as mere functionaries carrying out promotional maneuvers that comport with their owners’ political projects and whims. Such media simply cannot be trusted to report objectively on a variety of political issues. These include not only US foreign policy, but also domestic and public safety concerns involving terrorism and mass shootings. Beginning in 2012 with the Aurora Colorado theater shooting and Sandy Hook school massacre, and continuing to the present, real journalism is almost non-existent–in fact not permitted–in corporate-controlled media, which have willingly become  central components of at once publicizing and politicizing tragedy.

Broward County Teachers Caught Planning Illegal #MarchForOurLives (Video)

Public employees coach children on media ‘talking points’, Encouraged to “raise hell” with POTUS

A meeting between Parkland students and anti-gun activists mobilizing for the highly anticipated March For Our Lives event in Washington, D.C. this weekend was captured on hidden audio Tuesday evening [March 20] in Broward County, Florida and provided exclusively to DANGEROUS.

The meeting, which was described as a non-partisan briefing for students, parents, and staff members from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who are attending the #MarchForOurLives, was quickly exposed as being hijacked by Democratic Party top brass and fraught with extreme anti-conservative bias, misappropriation of school resources, and heavy-handed coaching for students when dealing with the media.

Held at the Marriott Hotel in Coral Springs, FL, the meeting was organized by Debby Miller, who teaches at Beachside Montessori Village, a Broward County Public School. Miller introduced herself as a representative for the Giffords Foundation, which has decided to fund and sponsor over 200 students, staff, and parents from Parkland, Florida to attend the march in Washington. Miller stated at the beginning of the meeting that the meeting space was donated by the Marriott Hotel.

First Weapons Seizure Under Florida’s “Risk Protection” Law

Police Say Broward County Gun Owner Feared “Shape-Shift[ing] Neighbor”, FBI Harassment

On Friday March 16 Lighthouse Point police seized the firearms of an unnamed suspect and committed the party to involuntary psychiatric treatment using Florida’s new “Red Flag law” and signed by

According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Broward Chief Judge Jack Tuter’s order states that the unknown party “told officers he ‘was being targeted and burglarized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and a neighbor who lives in [his] building. [He] could not describe the neighbor but stated that the neighbor [can] ‘shape shift, he can change heights and I’m notsure where he comes from’ and ‘to be honest, he looks like Osama Bin Laden.’”

Lighthouse Point police claim to have observed “weapons in his home after they were called to check on his welfare. They also found evidence he had ‘a voluminous amount of notes containing numerous references to former President Barack Obama, that he was killed in the 1980s but came back and now murders children to place their spirits into [the man’s] head, is a member of [al-Qaida], and is [the man’s] enemy,’ the judge wrote in his order.”

The individual also “told officers that he had to turn off the electrical breakers because “’they are electrocuting me through my legs.’” Technically the unknown party has not been arrested and so no police record of the action is available for public scrutiny.

“We put the safety of our residents first,” said Lighthouse Point Mayor Glenn Troast. “This is not about the Second Amendment and it’s not about the NRA. We need commonsense gun laws and this is a commonsense gun law that gives police officers new tools they need to help us protect our community.”

The Sun-Sentinel further reports:

Before now, officials who attempted to remove guns from a person they thought was a danger could be removed from office and fined up to $5,000, the mayor said. Troast said he grew up in a law enforcement family, hunted with guns and has a healthy respect for firearms and gun rights.

Lighthouse Point police made the request on March 14, one week after they were called to conduct a welfare check on the man, who they said was behaving strangely at his condominium building. Authorities said it was the latest in a series of encounters law enforcement had with the man, though he has no prior history of arrests in Florida. He had some prior arrests in Pennsylvania, records show.

Police were called after the man turned off the main electrical breakers to the condo building in Lighthouse Point, court records show. The South Florida Sun Sentinel is not identifying the man because of his medical condition.

Rep. Devin Nunes: NYT reporters are paid to write fake news by Democrat Super PACs

Fellowship of the Minds
(March 17, 2018)

On March 15, 2018, in a televised interview on Fox News, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said something stunning.

Beginning at the 5:20 mark in the video below, Congressman Nunes upbraided the “friends of the Democrats in the mainstream media”. Referring specifically to the New York Times, Nunes said the newspaper’s reporters “are heavily funded by Democratic Super PACs,” which the Times “should have disclosed”.

On March 12, 2018, after a 14-month investigation and who knows how much in taxpayer dollars, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence announced that they had completed their Russia investigation and found no evidence of collusion, coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.

ADL Censorship Campaign Deploys AI-Fueled “Online Hate Index”

ADL Hate CommentsBy Aaron Kesel
Activist Post

The ADL has released a creepy George Orwell 1984-esque video expressing that there is an increase of online hate and how to tackle it. The video shows bubbles that include labeling hate speech such as 9/11 truth, conspiracy, First Amendment, men’s rights and many more. Oh and ironically also the topic of this article – censorship.

The video opens with a woman identified as Brittan Heller, ADL’s Director of the Center for Technology & Society, speaking about online hate and how the ADL and [University of California] Berkeley are going to tackle online hate speech, (a broad definition which hasn’t truly been defined.) Heller goes on to explain that Berkeley and the ADL have been testing artificial intelligence in a lab to help tech giants identify “online hate speech” which presumably is defined by the ADL through the list of topics above in their bubble chart.

The dangerous precedent set for censoring the list above and deeming it hate speech is as follows. Censoring 9/11 truth one would have to ignore the dancing Israelis who said they were there to document the event, a van with a 9/11 mural painted found along with bombs on the George Washington Bridge, as well as the other white Urban Moving System white vans and the documented arrests of Mossad agents. Further, a person would need to completely ignore the insider trading that happened that day as documented by German security firm Convar. And that’s just scratching the surface of questions still no one has yet been able to explain how a building collapses in a controlled demolition matter from a fire like building 7.

In fact, the University Of Alaska recently did a study on just that, finding that WTC 7 did not fall due to fire, contradicting NIST who said the building collapsed from structural damages due to the fire.

Just so the ADL doesn’t call me anti-Semitic, I’ll leave a clear note that I am not blaming one of the other bubbles ADL came up with: “the Jews.” I am simply stating documented facts with questions lingering in response to the nonprofit seeking to censor “9/11 truth.”

YouTube Teams Up with Wikipedia to Temper “Conspiracy Theory” Content

Susan Wojcicki, former advertising executive-turned-YouTube CEO, announced on March 13 that the world’s foremost online video-sharing platform will have a new feature called “information cues” on controversial videos that contradict information approved and distributed by government sources and mass media.

Bloomberg reports:

YouTube will introduce a new tool to combat online conspiracy theories in the coming weeks, the latest effort from Google’s video site to halt the spread of misinformation.

Videos propagating conspiracy theories about events, like the moon landing, will now be accompanied by text from Wikipedia providing facts that counter the theory,

“Our goal is to start with a list of conspiracies around the internet where there’s a lot of active discussion,” Wojcicki declared at the South by Southwest conference in Austin, Texas.

Through The Post Darkly: The Ghost of Phillip Graham

By James F. Tracy

“We live in a dirty and dangerous world. There are some things the general public does not need to know and shouldn’t. I believe democracy flourishes when the government can take legitimate steps to keep its secrets and when the press can decide whether to print what it knows.” Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham, Langley Virginia, 1988.[1]

Steven Spielberg’s tribute to Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham and modern American journalism is a major Hollywood endeavor marshaling the industry’s premier talent. A s of this writing The Post has been nominated for dozens of awards throughout the film community.[2] The movie itself, however, comprises a sort of tortured historical confirmation on exactly how the news media would like to view themselves and their industry. It does so by mixing verifiable truths alongside careful omissions to reinforce a deeper set of myths concerning notions of American press freedom and the Vietnam War era.

On a more immediate level, The Post was produced in under six months, and was at least partly motivated by the political allegiances of its creators, who seek to analogize the Richard Nixon administration’s pursuit of a court injunction against the US press’ publication of the Pentagon Papers to President Donald Trump’s bellicose attitude toward a corporate news media that has arguably become an increasingly partisan political force following Trump’s defeat of his Democratic Party rival.

Spielberg renders Katharine Graham (Meryl Streep) as a somewhat awkward and isolated widow and among the first female publishers in the predominantly male-dominated business of newspaper publishing. Left unmentioned is the fact that Graham was the daughter of Eugene Meyer, one of the country’s most powerful bankers, who bought the Washington Post in 1933 while serving as head of the Federal Reserve.

America’s College Professors: Let’s Dismantle the 2nd Amendment

 Editor’s Note: On March 6, 2018 this message was sent out to the thousands of members of the United States’ largest college faculty union, requesting wide-scale support of the Democratic Party and gun control lobby’s assault on the US Constitution. Notably, the organization represents the bulk of the nation’s salaried and degree-holding intellectual class, speaking for them in one voice as it uncritically accepts the corporate mass media’s grossly flawed reportage and commentary on mass casualty events.-JFT

Dear James,

The recent mass shooting of seventeen students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, has refocused efforts to stem the epidemic of gun violence plaguing the nation. This time the effort has been initiated and led by the surviving students, supported by their teachers, parents, and students across the country. The American Association of University Professors salutes these brave and eloquent young people.

Gun violence is not a problem limited to high schools. Colleges and universities have been sites of mass shootings since 1966, when sixteen people died and thirty-one were injured at the University of Texas at Austin.

Sign on to our statement in support of gun control.

YouTube Now Scrubbing Older SANDY HOOK shooting Videos as Content Purge Intensifies

Natural News

As you may be aware, YouTube is on a censorship rampagegutting all content (and shutting down all accounts) that dare to question the “official” story on the Parkland, Florida shooting. Today, I’ve learned that YouTube is now going back in time and issuing strikes against videos questioning the Sandy Hook narrative from 2012.

Mere hours after I publicly called for the regulation of Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, YouTube issued a strike against my account for a 2012 interview with a controversial book author named Jim Fetzer. That interview, which has now been banned by YouTube, focused on why Amazon.com banned Fetzer’s book. (Yes, YouTube bans an interview about a book being banned by Amazon. This is the new Orwellian tyranny put in place by the tech giants… you can’t even talk about censorship without being censored.)

TruthandArtTV YouTube Channel Now Under Attack:

Fetzer’s provocative book title is, “Nobody Died at Sandy Hook,” and in the book, he claims the entire event was staged in an abandoned school that had no active students or teachers to begin with. Before you render an opinion about that, perhaps you could download Fetzer’s book here (PDF) and see what evidence he presents. Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with Fetzer’s theory, the fact that Amazon.com banned the book was fascinating news. That’s the news I covered in interviewing Fetzer.

Amazon.com sells all sorts of outrageous books making all kinds of ridiculous claims… but a controversial book on Sandy Hook gets priority censorship

Keep in mind that Amazon.com sells books that claim the Earth is flat. They also sell books that promote Adolf Hitler’s genocidal philosophy. But when someone questions the official story on Sandy Hook, they get blacklisted. That’s news! (And that’s why I interviewed Fetzer about censorship.)

Facebook and Google Are Today’s Thought Police

Personal Experiences From the Land of Orwellian Censorship

By James F. Tracy

Social media sites that have for many years allowed for the free and unimpeded discussion and exchange of ideas are now eliminating the posts and even entire accounts of content producers sharing observations and analyses that question the official narratives of complex events. This is straight out of a dystopian novel and entirely alarming. It won’t be surprising if colossal blog-hosting outlets such as WordPress.com eventually follow suit.

In late February 2018 YouTube has taken aim at several channels of well-known alternative media personalities using the platform, including David Seaman, Ron Johnson, Scott Creighton, and The Richie Allen Show. The common denominator of all these outlets is that they examine the relationships between the intelligence community, transnational forces, and political institutions.

The Fate of David Seaman, Ron Johnson, Scott Creighton, and Richie Allen’s YouTube Channels

Allen, for example, has over the years hosted an array of guests, many of whom hold nonconformist, “conspiracy”-oriented positions on political concerns and complex public events. At the time YouTube terminated Allen’s channel he had around 70,000 subscribers and his videos had many millions of views. Allen’s channel is one of many that YouTube has summarily pulled the plug on based on the company’s own subjective judgement and reaction to third party pressure.
