The Monitor’s language columnist has made peace with ‘mentor’ as a verb; ‘mentee’ as the term for the one being mentored, not so much.
Canadian terror attack
I don’t know if everyone is expecting a commentary on the shootings in Canada or not, but, since one of our hosts lives in Canada and could be affected by whatever the government does up there, I have some thoughts may or may not make sense but what the heck let’s take a stab at it.
The eyewitness accounts say that the shooter at the war memorial had long black hair and a white scarf with blue Arabic writing on it. The thing is is that there is, almost 24 hours later, a lot of information floating around. The problem with that is sorting out what is good information and what is supposition.
Laying blame on a person or group that did or didn’t do something violent is always risky – especially if you proceed from the point of view that one of the handy things that governments do is do propaganda real good. However with practice, it’s possible to spot their attempts at creating a matrix of false narrative.
We see this all the time whenever there’s a shooting that’s high profile. The media lapdogs always go after the Tea Party, loner, republican first and then hope to hell that the perp actually is. Which never seems to work out for them.
So, here’s some of the reporting that I’ve read with a link for each as usual.
“I saw the whole thing; it was unbelievable. Three shots, two at point blank range,” he said. The shooter was young, 30ish, Caucasian and male. He had dark, longish hair, facial hair and a black and white Palestinian type head scarf over his face, which he pulled down after the shooting. Then he held up the gun and shouted something that I didn’t hear.”
It didn’t feel dangerous, so I wandered up toward Parliament Hill. It was already in lock down but a police officer shouted to a colleague to keep people away from a rusty, brown Toyota Corolla, with no license plates.
Jimmy Kenney was standing next to the car and told me he saw the two suspects drive up in the Honda.
“I saw a car come down, with two young guys in it, and park in front of the War Memorial. The one that got out was carrying a rifle. Then I heard four shots and saw the guard falling. He came back to the car and the driver turned it around and parked in front of East Block. One guy ran down Elgin and the guy with the gun ran onto Parliament Hill.”
The shooter appears to have run towards Centre Block. Barry Willis was working on fiber optic cabling, near East Block.
“I looked over and saw a guy with a rifle it seemed surreal, but then he raised it and pointed it at me. It scared the shit out of me. I was in the military but I’ve never had a rifle pointed at me from 10 feet,” he said.
Mr. Willis said the alleged shooter ran past him and stopped a car, ordering the driver out at gunpoint. “I thought it was all over for him.
“Then [the shooter] got in the car and drove to Centre Block. I started to scream: ‘Terrorist attack, everyone get down.’ Then army and police vehicles appeared very quickly.”
I know exactly what is going to happen over the next few days and you should too if you pay attention to the above. The witness, Barry Willis says “Then army and police vehicle appeared very quickly”. If you’ve ever been in a situation where your life is in danger, unless you’re trained for it in some way, your sense of time gets screwed up from sensory overload.
But, mark my words someone is going to come up with “It was like they were waiting for something to happen…..FALSE FLAG”
What’s sometimes useful for gauging the effect of an article is the comments. Sometimes they’re well thought out, and sometimes…..well let’s just say that some of the commentators should expect a visit from some people in cars with flashing lights.
This comment is from the site barenakedislam which appears to be a Canadian site – I haven’t looked up the whois information on it; it not important enough to spend the time to do it.
MSM in this country has also virtually shut down “comments” on their news coverage. I think they know that there will be a huge backlash of “vigilante” justice coming down soon and they don’t want Canadians getting their fellow citizens “all worked up”. Although it is difficult for (law abiding) Canadians to get access to hand guns or assault-type rifles, there are a huge amount of long guns in the hands of patriotic Canadians…………… people who KNOW how to use them and won’t hesitate to do it if the government seems unwilling or unable to get these “muzturds” under control.
In typical apologist, muslim-pandering, politically correct fashion our esteemed law enforcement/political leaders have ALREADY reassured the imams of Canadian mosques that they will receive special protection from Canadian law enforcement in the event that there is any backlash/retaliation against muslims for the atrocities committed against Canadians by this “religion of peace”. Two of our brave military people are dead because of these animals, and the hear-no-evil, see-no-evil, speak-no-evil libtard “multiculturalists” are already spin doctoring the truth…………. DISGUSTING!!!
I would have to say that one would have to make a very good connection to mark an entire population for extermination. Although history is replete with examples where that isn’t the case, painting an entire religion with violent extremism isn’t very useful in most cases. Just ask the Jews and Christians in the middle east in Syria and elsewhere.
Don’t go and think that FTR/SETV is sympathetic to these people – we’re not and never will be – but we do believe in justice. Sometimes justice has to be withheld for something called evidence.
The sad truth is that these days, evidence can be manufactured very easily. You and I both know that there will be a very public investigation and hearings into this matter and no matter what the government in Canada comes up with, there will be plenty of bleating that will something like this:
- It was a false flag to kill the innocent Muslims
- It was a whitewash to protect the Muslims
- It was a government hit job because the people that got killed were about to go public
- Confiscate all the guns!
- Everyone should have a gun!
So my final thought on the matter is this. Get the evidence NOW before it’s all tainted. Download the web pages, the videos and the photos and do it pretty quickly before the propaganda begins.
Speaking of false flags….
You know, every time I get done writing one of these commentaries (which takes a lot of time believe it or not), yet another bit of news pops up and off I go once more down some rabbit hole with some chick called Alice. How’s this. A former White House staffer, yes someone that actually worked for a real president, says that this Ebola scare is in fact a false flag.
One would think that if anyone had a handle on what a false flag looks like, it would be someone who was there for them. It doesn’t necessarily mean that there is a false flag staring us in the face but I suppose we need to keep an open mind about such things. And I for one sure as hell don’t believe a single word coming out of the mouths of anyone with any authority whatsoever right now. In my opinion, they’ve lost the public trust and mandate to act on anything.
More information is available that suggests the the government had advance information that ebola was coming to the US and that the government expects a much larger outbreak of the disease in the US than it admits.
Keep in mind that Washington is evil and has been killing people in seven countries for thirteen years based entirely on lies. Keep in mind that Washington has a long list of countries that it has destabilized. Most recently Washington overthrew the elected government in Ukraine and is currently working on the remaining independent governments in the Middle East, Russia, and China as Tony Cartalucci’s article documents [here] For six case studies of how Washington overthrows governments read The Brothers.
It’s now clear that the U.S. government has long known this outbreak was coming but did nothing to warn the public.
In early September, the government sought to purchase 160,000 Ebola hazmat suits from a U.S. supplier.
B grade superheros run amok
We can’t even count on cartoon superheros any more. Yet another example of what is wrong with this country occurred earlier this week in Hollywood.
A fight between Mr. Incredible and Batgirl was broken up by Chewbacca, Where’s Waldo and Freddy Kruger. The brawl continued as Superman, Spiderman and other B list superheros joined in the fracas. The fight ended when Kruger pulled out a piece of Kryptonite causing Superman to vomit on Chewbacca.
In a statement after the incident, The Hulk, Thor and Iron Man called the fight “Typical of B list heroes”. The agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. are investigating reports that Batgirl was drunk (again).
Logical thinking takes a holiday….again
Can someone explain to me how the hell this works? If we let in all the foreign (and I’m willing to not use illegal just this one time) “workers”, how the hell is that going to make my wages go up?
Once again, the liberation theology is on parade for everyone to see. I suppose if allowing people from Ebola infected countries to fly around willy nilly makes us safer, then giving what few jobs we have to foreign workers makes sense too.
Read the rest….
Logical thinking takes a holiday, part 2
I guess this could be classified as bullshit.
Time for flu shot propaganda
I have to admit that I do take flu shots IF the shot is effective for that particular year. With my immune system and the damage from several very serious infections – most from insects – and a virus that just about killed me, not getting the flu unless it’s effective is number one on my list.
When someone that I know has the flu or a cold and doesn’t say anything, part of me is pretty pissed off – what they’re doing risks my life. Might as well as put a gun to my head.
Thus, I’m pretty sensitive to flu shots and what they’re made of and how well this particular one is working this year.
A Johns Hopkins scientist has issued a blistering report on influenza vaccines in the British Medical Journal (BMJ). Peter Doshi, Ph.D., charges that although the vaccines are being pushed on the public in unprecedented numbers, they are less effective and cause more side effects than alleged by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Further, says Doshi, the studies that underlie the CDC’s policy of encouraging most people to get a yearly flu shot are often low quality studies that do not substantiate the official claims.
