Ep. 87 – Florida School Shooting – Never Let A Good Crisis Go To Waste (Originally aired live Feb 17th, 2018)

The Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting is a crisis that the shameless mainstream media is not letting go to waste. In fact, they’ve seized upon it to conduct a massive propaganda campaign that’s pushing a multifaceted agenda. We talk about what those agendas are and we play audio of some of the more curious characters involved. Show originally aired on February 17th, 2018.
Our content on the Parkland shooting has been removed from Youtube for violating its policy against questioning the official narrative. So unless that changes, this episode and our previous episode are only available via audio podcast platforms and the podcast player above.

Ep. 76 – Texas Church Mass Shooting Aftermath, Do You Believe The Official Story?

Click below to listen to episode 76 of the Propaganda Report Podcast

The Incident & The Suspect

Below are elements of the official story as I know them, not necessarily what I believe.
The massacre inside the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Texas was caught on camera. For seven minutes, a man wearing all black body armor, a protective helmet and possibly a grim reaper mask moved from aisle to aisle shooting churchgoers and their children execution style, in the head. When he left, 25 of the 50 or so member congregation were dead and 21 more victims were wounded, 1 of which would later die in the hospital. I say possibly wearing a grim reaper mask because there has been some inconsistencies in the reporting on this. That man who investigators say is responsible for the worst mass shooting in Texas history is twenty-six year old Devin Patrick Kelley, a former Air Force member who court-martialed in 2012 for beating his wife and cracking his 2-year old step-son’s skull.
Prior to his court martial, according to the El Paso Police Department, Kelley had escaped from Peak Behavioral Health systems in Santa Teresa, New Mexico. Kelley had been committed after having been caught sneaking firearms onto the Air Force base in what authorities believe was an attempt to carry out death threats he had previously made towards his chain of command. The following year, in 2013, he was investigated for sexual assault. In 2014, he plead guilty to a cruelty to animal charge after being accused of repeatedly punching a dog in the face. And in the months approaching the shooting, he preached atheism on Facebook and mocked those who believed in religion. Oh, and it was initially reported that he once taught 4 to 6 year old children bible studies. So there’s your suspect in a nutshell. I’m sure I’m leaving a few things out.

The Alleged Motive

Investigators have suggested that the shooter’s motive was related to a domestic issue, and that his mother-in-law, who often attended the church, might have been the target. She was not present on that day however. This raises questions. If he was after his mother-in-law, why was he in full SWAT gear? Why did he need an assault rifle capable of holding more than 400 rounds of ammunition? Why did he need multiple extra weapons which were found inside his vehicle? Why wouldn’t he just go after her? While his mother-in-law may have been one of his targets, it’s hard to believe the simple domestic related motives that have been suggested.

The Good Samaritan Heroes

Upon leaving the church, the suspect was met with gunfire from a local who is being hailed a hero. Stephen Willeford was in relaxing in his home a few blocks away when his daughter alerted him to the gunfire. Willeford, a former NRA instructor, grabbed his rifle, a few magazines and was out the door before even putting his shoes on. (Reminiscent of John McClane in the original Die Hard movie)
Taking cover behind a neighbors truck, Willeford exchanges gunfire with Kelley from across the street. Kelley is shot twice. (Willeford was aiming for the gaps in the body armor). Kelley then drops his rifle, flees to his SUV and speeds off. I don’t know how long this gunfight lasted. The likely assumption is that it was brief, just not sure how brief.  After Kelley speeds away, Willeford notices a truck sitting in the intersection. He approaches the truck and enlists the help of the driver, Johnnie Langendorff, the other hero of the story. Willeford hops in Langendorff’s truck and the two good samaritans race after the suspect at speeds reaching 95 mph.
During the chase, Langerdorff spoke with police as he drove and Willeford fired at the suspect’s SUV, shattering its back window.  After about a 11 mile chase, Kelley’s vehicle hits a road sign, speeds up and then overturns in a ditch nearby. The two locals then pull up to the scene. Willeford exits the truck with his rifle and calls for the suspect to get out of the overturned vehicle. There is no response. Willeford keeps his gun fixed on the overturned SUV until police arrive. Authorities later allege that prior to driving into the ditch, the shooter called his father and told him that he wasn’t going to survive his injuries. Then he shot himself in the head.
This is quite a story, one that raises many questions. We address these questions and talk about the agenda items the Texas church mass shooting will serve in episode 76 of the Propaganda Report Podcast. Links and videos that we discuss are below.

Ep. 74 – The False Flag Everyone Ignored – The Peculiar Case of the Kate Steinle Murder

It was the story that launched and validated Donald Trump’s ultimately successful presidential campaign and ignited the national debate on Sanctuary City policy. A 32-year old San Francisco woman named Kate Steinle shot and killed by an illegal immigrant as she walked along Pier 14 with her dad. The alleged shooter Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, who has since strangely changed his name to Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, was a 7-time felon who had been deported 5 times prior to the shooting. The story was quickly politicized and many of the downright confusing details never saw the light of day. Today that changes as we shed light on the story’s uncomfortable details, and illustrate how the murder of Kate Steinle has all the hallmarks of a modern false flag.
Monica’s original blogpost:
TV interview of Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez (nee Garcia Zarate)
Judge denies Zarate the right to show TV interview to jury but allows police interview (which we have not seen)
Picture of gun retrieved from water in case, not in t-shirt (and the gun is claimed by the prosecution to have been fired once while the accused’s alleged “confession” says he picked up the package and heard “three bangs” – yes, that was actually the entirety of his “confession” folks – watch the tv interview & bring a Spanish-speaking friend if you have one)

Ep. 71 – Las Vegas Shooting – There's Something Strange Going On (Podcast)

* Correction – There is a leaked photo of the body from the crime scene. It’s unrecognizable. How long does it take to identify a body in such circumstances?
CLICK below to listen to episode 71 of the Propaganda Report Podcast.

While the truth about the mass shooting in Las Vegas remains unclear, there is one thing we know for sure. Regardless of how horrifying a story might be, the media will always put their political agenda above reporting the truth. On today’s show; The 4 agenda items that this latest tragedy will be exploited to serve. The left attempts to shame gun advocates. Stephen Paddock’s father was a con man and master of disguise who escaped from prison, moved to Oregon, changed his appearance, took on a fake name and lived a very social life for nearly a decade without the authorities noticing. Did the son take after the father? Indivisible disseminates dangerous propaganda to their followers. Look out for snipers in helicopters at the next concert you go to.

Weird Meme in "London Rampage"

170322-london-police-officer-attack-feature.jpegThe front page of The Wall Street Journal today showed this picture, which immediately struck me as highly unlikely. Look at the picture. The story is that Member of Parliament Tobias Ellwood (the man in the suit giving CPR to the man on the ground) got to work waiting for medical personnel, but the picture shows that the man is receiving professional medical help as supplies are ripped open and in use. Clearly, Ellwood was permitted to continue being the main provider of medical aid to the victim despite the fact that an emergency medical team had arrived and was immersed in the scene. (I couldn’t help but be reminded of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on 9/11 carrying stretchers across the lawn of the Pentagon, abandoning his post while the country was under attack and being lauded for it instead of tried.)
I showed my eleven-year-old the picture and asked him this question: “If you were the man on the ground in need of assistance, would you rather have the politician working to save your life or the medical professionals standing all around him?” He astutely chose the medical professionals. I further asked him, “If you were the family of the man on the ground and that man died (which he did), would you be hailing the politician or suing him?” My son said, “He died????? Oh man.” Yeah.
So what gives? Because MP Ellwood is being hailed far and wide as a hero for getting his expensive suit dirty presiding over a dying man while emergency technicians looked on. My inquiring mind wanted to know. I thought either he’s a doctor and all this makes sense, or he isn’t and it doesn’t make sense, in which case I will look to see if he has a background in the military or in intelligence. I googled, “Is Tobias Ellwood a doctor?” and came up short. (The ONLY articles that came up were about the Hero Ellwood.) So I went to Wikipedia and found the following…

And from his official bio:

  • Tobias was educated in Bonn and Vienna when his parents were overseas as members of the United Nations. He returned to attend Loughborough University and subsequently completed an MBA at City University Business School. He also completed the senior executive course in National and International Studies at the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University.

Seems like a pretty insidery guy, but no smoking gun – no reports anywhere actually tell what he did in the Royal Green Jackets (hey, maybe with his finance background he was a medic! Oh wait–maybe not.) But I did find one more tidbit…I went to tweet my findings with an article telling the backstory and found this:
U.S.-Born Lawmaker, Whose Brother Was Killed in 2002 Bombing, Tried to Save Wounded Officer During London Attack
This might strike you as a coincidence, but for me, in a world of false flags coincidences like this don’t get the benefit of the doubt, so I did a little more digging. This particular attack was reported by an insider as having likely been a false flag conducted by Indonesian authorities.
Former President admits False Flag attack in the Bali Bombings that killed hundreds
These are the dots–are they connected?
What To Watch Out For: I can’t help but think this little photo op will level up MP Ellwood’s career. #WTWOF

Nasties v. Deplorables
When I lived in Texas, Rick Perry was running for election as the incumbent governor. A very powerful TV commercial aired with police dashcam showing him trying to get out of a ticket, ranting “Do you know who I am?” to what the commercial described as “a young, black, female police officer.” I never liked him after that because I really detest power-happy pols. When he ran for the Republican nomination for president, I tried to find that video and it had been truncated across the board…below is all that’s left. Youtube scrubbed again! (By coincidence, one of my first posts ever was a clip of a GOP debate in 2011 where Rick Perry laughs at the suggestion that he could be bribed for a mere $5,000–it was shocking! Here’s my post, only the clip has been scrubbed by youtube! https://monicaperezshow.com/2011/09/14/i-cant-be-bought-for-just-5k/)

Another scrubbed video was the Michelle Obama “Whitey” comment. People say it never happened, but I had a friend who said she heard it herself so I looked into it way back then-and got Rick Rolled! Remember that?

150528074706-etan-patz-trail-verdict-juror-adam-sirois-newday-00003201-large-169.jpegI remember this case but I was very young so I didn’t recall the details. Reading about it today as the launchpad for the missing children movement made me curious about how it was finally resolved. Honestly, any major event that acts as a launchpad for a major policy initiative or political movement makes me curious about how it was spun compared with what really happened, so I was curious if it really was what it was painted as. Here was my chance to find out. After all these years, there was a conviction, even after a recent mistrial. I clicked through to the CNN story and, although I rarely have the time or patience to watch the ads or the fluffy news videos, I did it this time because Chris Cuomo (possibly my least favorite so-called journalist, and as the brother and son of governors, likely a deep state operative of the highest order) was interviewing Adam Sirois, the lone hold out juror in the recent mistrial. Despite what clearly appears to be Cuomo’s attempt to discredit the guy, the lone juror convinced me. What do you think? Was Cuomo out to discredit the guy? Did Sirois prevail, or Cuomo?

Touchstones Trump Conspiracies

scratching-gold-to-test-purityThe Trump election is the most significant thing that’s happened in the world since 9/11, in my opinion. I think even the first black president pales in comparison because it didn’t actually change our course. Trump’s presidency might.
The interesting question in my opinion, however, is not, “How did he get elected?” but rather “Why did he get selected?” I’m not at all interested in discussions of “populism” or “nationalism” or “racism” or any of the blowhard psycho-social analysis of why people voted the way they did. What I want to know is, what does it mean that power brokers from the left like Jeff Zucker at CNN all way to the neo-con team on the right at National Review played into Trump’s claims of being an outsider who scared the crap out of the establishment, whcover_20160215_tocile at the same time giving him billions in free advertising to drive that point home. (To wit, The National Review‘s gilded issue gives the impression Trump is already king–the “against” in the title notwithstanding.) Trump actually got more media coverage than any candidate ever and spent the least.
I don’t believe for a minute it was simply about ratings. Yes, the elite love money, and Zucker surely cared about that while crafting Trump & his show the Apprentice at NBC, but anyone who’s been watching mainstream media in this country over the past decades knows darn well there’s a bigger picture at work. I’m sure the government-media continuum is downright giddy that we fund our own brainwashing by actually paying for cable news on top of sitting through the commercials, but there is much more at stake for these players in the long term agenda these outlets push. They wouldn’t (and didn’t) give that kind of coverage to Ron Paul no matter how well he could drive ratings, nor did they ever harp on the fact that Dr. Paul really did scare the crap out of the establishment. Trump was another story.
Furthermore, nothing has changed my simple observation that the only thing arguing for free and fair elections in this country is faith in the governments that count the votes and faith in the media that are supposed to keep them honest. I have faith in neither. I do think it’s tricky to steal elections, but it gets done and it has for awhile. I believe the push from both sides to make a federally administered popular vote system is an attempt by the power elite to take the headache out of fixing the vote, but that’s just streamlining the process not initiating it.
So here I am, scratching my head as to what is really happening and why. The wall talk, the ban talk, the identity-centered protesters all smack of deliberate diversions. There is an agenda at work, that is for sure, but what it is I’m not so sure. My money is on just two possibilities:

  1. There is a cabal that sits above the two-party system that works for world government, centralization of power, a manageable population and, in Zbigniew Brzezinski’s words, “a highly controlled society.” They want to control all the assets and resources, which they do by working to get every individual, corporation and country into debt, which they own (rather than savings, which we would own). And they want to control all the people. To do this they must keep the population down (that’s why so many agenda items for them are designed to disconnect sex from procreation: from birth control to abortion to premarital sex to homosexuality to sex robots to porn to…well, you get the idea! and it’s why they want to control all the land and the food and the jobs or better yet institute basic income for total dependence); they also must have all the information they can on every individual, and they must control the ideas, thoughts and behaviors of individuals (through a combination of information overload and censorship) because ultimately the consent of the governed is the linchpin of those in power…. Perhaps this is the Aldous Huxley crowd with a Brave New World style where everyone takes prozac soma and is blissfully ignorant of their loss of humanity.
  2. That first possibility has been my working theory for years, but now I have to entertain another possibility: that there are two factions competing to shape and control the world. The alternate faction might be the Orwellian elite who believe the only way to truly control the masses is for a boot to step on the human face forever. Perhaps it’s as simple as a disagreement at the top over the answers to the questions posed in The Report from Iron Mountain: is peace possible and is it desirable? Is there an alternative to war for keeping the masses in line? The answers were unclear in the report. One proposal was a giant environmental hoax that would cause the people to be loyal to a world government. Another proposal was to create an enemy of despised people so the mainstream population would feel dependent on the government through fear…. Perhaps my original observation that there’s one cabal and this second manifestation of an alternate paradigm don’t actually reveal two distinct power centers, but merely reveal two paths of what is ultimately still a single power base–that is, two social experiments by the same cabal to test out how truly to control the entire world’s population for the first time. Or perhaps they are putting forth Trump as the crisis that will give rise to the solution: World Government…I really don’t know the answer, which is why I’m going to get back to basics….

What I’ve decided to do is to put on the back burner (if I can!) puzzling over what’s really going on and who’s really pulling the strings. Instead, I’m simply going to hold up events, policies, laws, etc., to the touchstones* of principle. I criticized the left when they failed to do it to Obama and frankly, I don’t think the who or why et al are actually very important if we just stick to principles. America’s founding principles were, after all, designed to restrain government, and if we stick to them we can all be safe–left, right and center–without placing blame or trying to one-up the other side’s power plays.
I have found that I may never be able to stay a step ahead of those who are able to manipulate major events, but I don’t have to if we always insist on principles. They are, after all, either given to us by a God who wants the best for us, or they have emerged over millennia as the enduring principles that immutable human nature requires to maintain stable societies. Either way, they are our only hope for liberty and justice for all–not to mention true human dignity.
Here are the touchstones…

  1. There is only one fundamental civil law: Don’t touch me or my stuff. All other “laws” simply tease this out when it’s not crystal clear. (For example, can you build a dam and deprive down river settlers of water? Developed law is useful for this. “The government owns all the water” is not a legitimate law according to this principle–or to me.)
  2. The Ten Commandments. Whether you’re religious or not, this is a good place to start. Christ’s Two Commandments are surely perfect, but the Ten Commandments never get old, especially Thou Shalt Not Kill and Thou Shalt Not Steal (Taxation is Theft!)
  3. The foundational documents of the United States of America. Frankly, I prefer the Articles of Confederation to the Constitution (The latter enshrines federal taxation, the former does not, and after all, Taxation is Theft!) I actually think the American Experiment was betrayed when the Articles of Confederation were illegal overturned, but I do accept (and defend) the Constitution because of how it was sold to the people and that is the standard to which it should be (but is not) held. The Bill of Rights, I love. If we just restored the Bill of Rights we would win this thing. And the Declaration of Independence. While not a law per se, it lays out the founding principles of the nation and is a touchstone for understanding what we the governed consented to (if anything).
  4. We must also remember that our founding documents contain declarations of rights we inherently possess, they are not gifts from government. That means everyone in the world should be fighting for all of these same rights and principles, and we should acknowledge and support their right to pursue liberty and justice within the confines of their own sovereign nations rather than interfering in their politics for “American interests abroad” which has no basis in our founding principles (nor in the Law of Nations upon which our founding relied and from which “American Exceptionalism” falsely claims a pass). And most of all, we have a moral obligation to limit violence committed by our agents in government to true self-defense according to the principles of just war at the very least, but ideally according to our own individual and fully informed consciences. (The Constitutional requirement for Congress to declare war and the difficulty presidents find when they try to get such declarations is an example of how merely sticking to our own laws will keep us out of moral trouble and physical danger without the brain damage of sussing through all the BS and false flags they throw at us to bypass these safeguards.)

These are the touchstones. I hope we can all have a mind to use them to tease out the rights and wrongs of what’s going on. These basic principles apply not only to personal liberty but to economic liberty. For example, there would be no immigration issue if government policy didn’t deliberately and drastically distort labor markets (in violation of the Tenth Amendment). Applying these principles to specifics the way gold is rubbed on a touchstone to distinguish it from pyrite (fool’s gold) is what I think will be desperately needed over the next months and years. I hope you will join me in my efforts!
*I love the term “touchstone,” which I first fully appreciated watching the great series “Connections” by James Burke. In that series, Burke discusses a handful of simple inventions which changed the direction of civilization. One of them was the touchstone. It was a stone which only gold would mark up in just such a way so that rubbing gold on the touchstone would prove it was gold. According to Burke, this facilitated commerce by allowing an easily verifiable medium of exchange and changed the course of history.

Nasties v Deplorables

a8d2303bbf2a33f449ca0e3c1bf9460eI hate Hitler analogies & any reference to World War II as being the perfect example of everything that could ever go right or wrong in the world, but I also believe that right now some deliberate parallels with history are being orchestrated or at least attempted, from “populism” to “fascism.” Specifically, I can’t help but wonder if the focus on race and immigration are a distraction from the implementation of The Total Corporate State. If there is a parallel with fascism to be made, it’s this endgame that is the real goal rather than actual “hate.” But the “hater” thing is what’s got people screaming at each other right now, and it’s no accident. Both sides of this dialectic have agitation as a major goal seems to me. I call it Nasties v Deplorables, with examples Ashley Judd and Milo Yiannopoulos, respectively. These guys and many others are getting people to scream at each other and use language that was absolutely off limits not very long ago. Why? I have a theory.

I had an epiphany when I heard an alt-right blogger say he used to get total flak for the edgy things he said and now everyone’s saying them! And I realized I noticed the same thing. I used to really worry about offending people, not because I said objectively offensive things, but because merely trying to dig into the truth of certain identity-based political hot-buttons are in themselves offensive to some people.
(This is actually a device used to stifle debate. A parallel example occurred today in a Sean Spicer press conference [starting at around 26:40–it’s already teed up below] where someone asked what we were doing in Yemen and he responded repeatedly that to ask such a question disrespected the death of Chief Owens who Spicer said gave his life on a mission in Yemen protecting us from terrorism.)
(As if that aside weren’t off topic enough, you must take a moment to watch Melissa McCarthy do Sean Spicer…she really nails it….)

As did the alt-right blogger, I noticed that what I say is not in the slightest bit edgy anymore and honestly, I was relieved–I started to think maybe I could let my guard down a bit and not worry so much about the occasional misunderstanding–then it hit me!
The Deplorables are being egged on by the Nasties and they are letting their guards down–actually they all are, the Nasties and the Deplorables. Every nasty thing folks say on twitter, facebook, and gab.ai (the Deplorable-friendly answer to twitter which may actually be a honeypot if this is the real game), is being uploaded to the Fusion Centers. (Think I’m kidding? Go to Utah.) Every nasty (or deplorable!) comment is being recorded and catalogued. (Every single tweet is destined for the Library of Congress also, by the way.) Perhaps you think that the overwhelming amount of this data or the extremes to which people like Milo go make us safe by making us look mild. Or that the Nasties are worse so we can always use that as a defense. What I fear, however, is that the pendulum will swing back, the Nasties will be back in charge and just like what actual state-agent Nazis in Germany said and thought, what seemed totally normal, even de rigueur to them in the context of the time, what Deplorables say in the context of this time will be ex post facto criminal speech. (An ex post facto law is an after the fact law and it is against the fundamental principles of just law, but I see fundamental standards such as these slipping away.) I’m not saying what Deplorables say is tantamount to Nazi-talk, I’m just saying, the Nazis and even ordinary citizens actually thought what they were saying was just fine, even cool, in the context of the time, especially since Nazis were the ones in power. (I recall a movie in which a young woman went to a small German town to root out citizens who abided the Nazis. It was actually called The Nasty Girl, if you can believe it.)
I hesitate to even speculate about this–not because I hate Nazi comparisons (which I do)–but because I don’t want to contribute to the Panopticon, which is surely part of the plan (unrolled by what I deem to be a limited hangout, Edward Snowden). That is, by chilling ourselves for fear the watchers are watching, the watchers don’t even have to watch! We will curb ourselves from exercising the First Amendment without them having to lift a finger.
The psyops within psyops, like the disinformation within disinformation, would be enough to make this libertarian go the Full Rothbard (that is, if she hadn’t already)!
