The essence of the information war is the timely interjection, distortion or omission of news events. Reports can minimize, omit or basically bury key news stories that require analysis while magnifying others which are of lesser importance to the keen, analytical mind.
While the Batman massacre is tragic, the buzz in the so called alternative media circle is centered around the litany of ongoing stories that will be stifled in the week to come by the mainstream media’s focus on the Aurora, CO shooting. Beyond that, the analysis you read here is not all presented as 100% fact, some conclusions are presented in light of other evidence, and where noted, some are speculative based on educated theory. In this era of total media bombardment, to the point of overload, some events have to be considered beyond just what is confirmed in print or on video and must be evaluated in the full context of possible human behavior.
1. The American Opposition To The UN Arms Trade Treaty (AKA Small Arms Treaty)
The controversy is brewing over wide speculation that this was a false flag “terror” event and massive psychological operation, not just directed at the American ppl, but the sentiment towards America’s guns around the world.
If you are new to this realm of news, in short, that last sentence means this event may have been planned and executed by people with an agenda, possibly with ties to or within government and/or intelligence agencies. The suggestion of this may be repulsive to you, but there is a long history of staged terror by governments.
Analysis of the tell-tale signs of a seemingly staged event can be found at Natural News and Infowars, among other sites. For the sake of brevity in this article, we encourage you to read those breakdowns. We are just briefly parsing the correlation and timing of this event with the roadblocks in the way of the UN treaty.
Does this look like something a broke PhD student could afford?
First, consider the large scale opposition in America to an international shredding of the Second Amendment that crystallized when 130 lawmakers sent a signed letter to President Obama expressing serious concern. Since then, many mainstream news outlets like Forbes and the DC Examiner have expressed concern in the “fine print” as stated by the Examiner’s Dave Workman. Even the sometimes news “manufacturers” over at Fox News are increasingly concerned by this. Alex Jones remarked Sunday that everything else aside, one undeniable fact is that recently there has been heavy coverage of the Second Amendment issues created by this UN treaty prior to the Aurora, Colorado shooting. The Heritage Foundation noted the treaty would affect “Legally Owned Weapons” back in June despite UN efforts to dispel Second Amendment fears with it’s “Myths and facts”. They even went as far to say watch out for “U.S. taxpayer-funded funded U.N. propaganda in a newspaper near you”, in the same article.
The most obvious concern in alternative media is the way the Batman massacre will be exploited by the New World Order, globalists or others that further their cause, or simply those that want to eliminate guns for the masses, but not for their own security. This hypocritical narrative is one often overlooked by supporters of various levels of added gun regulation or outright bans. The globalists are experts at this kind of manipulation of public opinion. Many are attracted by the “promise” of increased safety, but the picture below should give you pause for concern. It had been circulating the internet on Facebook and alternative media circles prior to the Batman massacre.
This article highlights the various elements of this treaty including bans, confiscation and other restrictions, with further analysis here. Gun destruction is another reality occurring that would expand, see the 600 small arms and light weapons recently destroyed in Ivory Coast in the wake of ongoing political turmoil being “fixed” by UN intervention. Disarming the people is another benefit of a globalist occupation of countries now (Sound like an American future?).
In this charged atmosphere, extreme things are said and put into action and maybe it’s important to keep these themes and memes in mind?
2. The Post-Batman Massacre rampage by Anaheim, CA police that you haven’t heard about
While the media circled around the Batman massacre, Anaheim PD responded to a call which led to a foot chase and eventual shooting of the suspect. The neighborhood was outraged upon learning the details and began to protest, some reports say they began to get violent, allegedly surrounding the officers trying to finish the crime scene investigation.
The way it sounds, both police and residents were out of hand. This occurred in a high minority area where there is a tense relationship between them and the police and was made worse by the questionable circumstances of the shooting. The controversy is mainly over the indiscriminant firing into the crowd which included numerous children. Numerous protesters raised their shirts to reveal welts from “non-lethal” rubber bullet rounds and pepper balls.
There are conflicting reports of what happened, reports say the crowd had varying levels of disorderly citizens. NBC LA reports some wreckless police actions including a police dog getting out of a squad that attacked a stroller with an infant and then a bystander who was “mauled” while saving the infant. They also report discrepancies in the crowd actions compared to other reports and possibly misconduct regarding the shooting of the suspect.
“He was shot first in the back,” she told NBC4 through tears. “He was down. Then they shot him the second time. Then they shot him in the head.“
Other reports mention he was shot in the buttocks and then “struck in the head“
Then consider this from the LA Times
“After the shooting, and while police were investigating the incident, Dunn said a group of people encircled the officers and began throwing things, including bottles and possibly rocks, at them.
Police used non-lethal rounds and pepper balls on the crowd, Dunn said, and at least one person was detained.
One harrowing moment was when a police dog somehow got free from an officer’s car and went at several people. Dunn said it was unclear if anyone had been bitten or injured. “The officer was quickly able to get the dog back into the vehicle,” Dunn said.”
That reads very different from the NBC LA story and even the middle of the road ABC story. There’s reports of people lining the streets with trash cans, setting dumpsters on fire, even throwing a mattress on the debris pile. Those reports couldn’t all be confirmed, even with video of the events.
It seems apparent also from this video that the crowd of protesters weren’t exactly angels. It’s reasonable to assume that in a large crowd, there will be at least one instigator or even idiot. There may be a person that simply makes a bad choice to throw something, it’s just the law of averages and random distribution.
The police chief was quoted as saying “Transparency is essential. Whatever the truth is, we will own it.” With that said, what’s more alarming possibly is the report from the Raw Story.
According to reporter Jay Jackson, dozens of people were filming the event with their cellphones, and four different people told him “that police officers offered to buy their video from them without any explanation.”
If that’s true, it’s troubling since there should be no reason to buy the videos. Whatever the videos show will not change, short of something extraordinary, so whatever happens to the video should be ok with the police department. When the tape eventually comes out, it should parallel the investigation, again, leaving no reason to attempt to buy the videos. So why attempt to buy it? The ultimate point is that one article or news report generally will not give you enough info to form a consensus. If one really wants to know what happened, one must consider all angles, ask reasonable and sometimes seemingly unreasonable questions.
3. The Middle East is a powder keg more than ever as WW3 looms, possibly beginning in Syria:
