Texas Senator Ted Cruz was asked on Thursday by as reporter from Sky News why mass shootings only happen in America. He couldn’t answer the question. The slovenly and disheveled Senator went into a hissy fit, and tried to reframe the question. It looked very bad, and certainly feeds into the leftist narrative about the need for gun control.

I don’t expect Ted Cruz to ever say anything that I care about in any situation, but here’s the thing: it’s a good question.

Why do these shootings only happen in America?

If you don’t answer the question, you are left effectively capitulating to the leftist narrative that “it is because guns exist.”

In fact, guns exist in most countries.

Here’s the map of civilian gun ownership worldwide:

Yes, America has the most guns, but most gun owners don’t do mass shootings, so that number is irrelevant. The fact is, in most countries, if a criminally insane person is intent on acquiring a firearm, he can do it. And yet, these weird mass casualty events only happen in America.

Actually, mass casualty events using rifles happen regularly in Europe, it’s just that those don’t count because they’re all done by Moslems. Moslem shootings have happened in France every couple of years in the same period mass shootings have been increasing in America. In 2015, 90 people were killed in the Bataclan theater mass shooting in Paris, which is more than the biggest mass shooting in American history, where 60 were killed in Las Vegas in 2017. But that was Moslems, and Moslem attacks are viewed differently because despite nonstop politically correct indoctrination, everyone is aware that Moslems are prone to commit violence in the name of their religion.

Islamic terrorism is easily put in a box, where it is understood. (It’s notable that on some level, the Brenton Tarrant shooting also fit into this box. It was a reverse Islamic shooting, and the comments sections of conservative websites showed that many people felt on some base level that it was justified as a response to the endless attacks by Moslems.)

However, these “loner” anti-social shootings for seemingly no reason (or some convoluted pseudo-reason) are considered much scarier, and they do for the most part only happen in America. (There have been notable exceptions, including a shooting in Germany in 2019. That shooter made his own guns, which creates a whole other dimension of response to the gun control arguments.)

If we admit that in about half the world a civilian intent on acquiring a gun can do so without much effort, then what is different about America?

Well, there are a lot of things different about America – none of which Ted Cruz wants to talk about:

  • America is the most “progressive” and “liberal” country in the world
  • America has the world’s highest rate of prescription psychotropic drug use
  • America has the world’s highest rate of untreated mental illness
  • America has the ugliest manmade structures in the world, creating urban environments that are alienating and dehumanizing
  • America is one of the most pornography-riddled countries, and also one of the least sexually active countries
  • America has one of the highest divorce rates in the world
  • America has one of the lowest marriage rates in the world
  • America has the highest rate of children living in single-parent homes
  • America has the least social cohesiveness as a result of being the most diverse country in the world
  • Perhaps most importantly: America has a mass intelligence apparatus with a well-documented history of running utterly amoral psychological operations against their own population

These issues all lead to questions that need to be asked if we’re going to try to unravel the mystery of why these bizarre mass shootings keep happening in America – but no one in politics is interested in these questions.

Democrats say that guns must be made illegal to stop these events, and Republicans say that schools should be turned into prisons, having armed guards patting down everyone who enters. I guess they want the same for movie theaters, grocery stores, hotels, handjob parlors, and all the other places these shootings happen – just go full prison society with armed guards everywhere doing pat-downs forever.

Of course, neither solution would actually accomplish anything. No one believes you could actually get rid of all of these guns in America, and enforcing a policy of armed guards in all public places would just result in the armed guards getting shot first (it’s pretty easy to surprise someone with bullets). Most of these schools where the shootings happen have armed guards already – including the most recent one in Texas.

No one is saying that a study should be done where all of these mass shootings are examined and we find out what the shooters had in common and then try to come up with real world solutions. Seriously – have you ever seen any politician say that? I haven’t. How is that even possible?

The only obvious conclusion is that politicians don’t want these shootings investigated. Everyone who tried to do their own investigation of Sandy Hook got sued with a totally new form of civil lawsuit. What happened to the investigation of the Vegas shooter? Remember when that Mexican security guard who allegedly stopped him fled to Mexico, then was dragged back to film a bizarre hostage style interview on Ellen?

He had a handler with him and Ellen had a board with a blueprint of the hotel explaining to him what he did.

Why is all of this stuff so weird?

In this most recent shooting in Texas, everyone was reporting that the shooter was wearing body armor, then days later they said “oh no sorry, actually he wasn’t.” This happened at Sandy Hook, where it was reported by a list of witnesses that a man in body armor fled into the woods.

The official story in the Arizona Batman shooting from 2012 was that the shooter was wearing full body armor and a gas mask. The person they convicted for the shooting was like some kind of vegetable.

Then of course I think everyone knows about David Hogg, and the bizarre things with the Parkland shooting.

The 2021 handjob massacre shooting was also totally weird, with yet another one of these dim-eyed freaks who didn’t seem to know where he was or what was going on.

He had spent time in an in-patient psychiatric facility.

I’m just throwing stuff out there off of the top of my head – you could of course go through all of these events and make a comprehensive list of all the weird things that happened, but all of it would follow along with the things I just listed. If you look into any single one of these high-profile mass shootings that the media goes ape over (as opposed to the ones done every week by the blacks that they just ignore), you’re going to find an entire list of very strange things that have never been explained.

Probably, in this analysis, you’d want to go back to the Kennedy shootings. Lee Harvey Oswald, who was accused of shooting John F. Kennedy, said he didn’t do it and he was setup as a patsy. Unfortunately, he never got his day in court because he was killed by a mobbed-up communist Jew named Jack Ruby (Rubinstein) outside of the Dallas police station.

Ruby then went insane after doing therapy sessions with infamous MK Ultra CIA Jew psychotherapist Louis Jolyon West while in custody, and then died in prison in 1967.

The killing of Robert F. Kennedy was possibly even more bizarre, with the shooter being a Palestinian Christian named Sirhan Sirhan, who is still alive and still maintains that he has no memory of committing the crime – or of making statements in court admitting to the crime.

In a 2011 parole hearing interview, he said he doesn’t remember anything between the days before the shooting and the time, years later, that he found himself sitting in prison on death row.

That’s been his story the entire time, in interviews and hearings. The court said his motive was that the Kennedys supported Israel. This was five years after JFK had been assassinated when his brother was set up to become president.

The year after RFK’s assassination, you then had the Manson murders, which involved brutal killings of Hollywood figures by people who were friends with Charles Manson. Manson was clearly some kind of patsy. He was unhinged from years of LSD which were preceded by an abusive childhood. This story about how he secretly whispered to people to commit murders (without actually ever saying it) is a travesty. It was really like some kind of a joke. Manson had a group of friends that he did acid with, who were at the trial deemed to be a “cult.” They admitted at the trial that he never told these people to kill anyone.

Wikipedia:

In early August 1969, some Manson Family members committed murders in Los Angeles. The Manson Family gained national notoriety after the murder of actress Sharon Tate and four others in her home on August 8 and 9, 1969, and Leno and Rosemary LaBianca the next day. Tex Watson and three other members of the Family committed the Tate–LaBianca murders, allegedly under Manson’s instructions. While it was later accepted at trial that Manson never expressly ordered the murders, his behavior was deemed to warrant a conviction of first degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. Evidence pointed to Manson’s obsession with inciting a race war by killing those he thought were “pigs” and his belief that this would show the “nigger” how to do the same.

So: drug addled rants were a secret message. This was a complete departure from hundreds of years of legal precedent – arguably thousands, going back to ancient Rome.

The other very strange thing about the Manson case, which relates to many of these mass shootings, is that he was repeatedly sent to court and to prison for serious crimes and they just kept letting him go or letting him out over and over again. This was covered in Tom O’Neill’s book that was just released in 2019, “CHAOS: Charles Manson, the CIA, and the Secret History of the Sixties.” That was two years after Manson’s death in 2017. If the Manson trial needed a final nail in its coffin, this book is that nail. The reviews of the book were not critical of any of his facts, and most basically outright admitted that the trial was a hoax.

Here’s Joe Rogan asking a CIA agent, Mike Baker, about that book.

Manson, like all of these whacked-out freaks, was incapable of defending himself at trial and given lawyers that were working with the prosecution.

Charles Manson was not a real “serial killer,” even by their own definitions. But I should note that you will also find this kind of very strange stuff when looking into the various high-profile serial killers. For some reason, we don’t have high profile serial killers anymore – they seem to have been replaced by mass shooters. Jeffrey Dahmer was arrested in 1991, and the Columbine school shooting happened in 1999. Serial killers were also a fundamentally American phenomenon.

You can go on and on into all of these very weird situations – but the point here is not to do some kind of deep dive into conspiracy lore, but just to point out that this stuff gets very strange, and the single most important piece of evidence is that there is zero interest by the government to understand anything that is going on, and in fact they have actively covered up all of this stuff. The government is very open to releasing “classified” information about UFOs and making a big spectacle of it, but the most important Kennedy documents are still sealed.

We’re witnessing a coverup of the Texas shooting right now, in real time.

The Kennedy shootings and subsequent Manson event came after the US government started doing experiments into mind control, which involved drugging people and imprinting them with behavior patterns. These initial programs were called “MK Ultra.” Ostensibly, the purpose of these programs was to “beat the Soviets.” They claimed they wanted spies that were not aware they were spies.

Here’s just the first paragraph from the Wikipedia page:

Project MKUltra (or MK-Ultra) was the code name of an illegal human experimentation program designed and undertaken by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The experiments were intended to develop procedures and identify drugs such as LSD that could be used in interrogations to weaken individuals and force confessions through brainwashing and psychological torture. MKUltra used numerous methods to manipulate its subjects’ mental states and brain functions, such as the covert administration of high doses of psychoactive drugs (especially LSD) and other chemicals, electroshocks, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, isolation, and verbal and sexual abuse, in addition to other forms of torture.

The short story is: these techniques worked. They could erase memories and program behaviors, they could create multiple personalities that could be triggered by sounds or phrases. This was all in the 1950s. The programs were supposedly stopped in 1973 due to information being leaked to the media.

So, we’re supposed to believe that the American intelligence agencies just stopped doing these programs because it was immoral – and the US intelligence apparatus is very moral. It’s definitely good that they stopped these programs in 1973, because there probably would have been quite a few advancements in the technique over the last 50 years if they weren’t so moral as to stop doing these programs.

Are All These Mass Shootings Part of a Government Psychological Operations Program?

This week it was revealed that a “former” federal cop was in the Discord server with the Buffalo shooter.
This week it was revealed that a “former” federal cop was in the Discord server with the Buffalo shooter.

I have no idea if most or all of these shootings are part of a government mind control conspiracy. My thought is that many of them probably are. It is certainly always the government that benefits.

Just think of that Buffalo shooter naming the Daily Stormer in his alleged notes. These notes also say he was pro-gay and believed in the virus hoax, and was also double vaxed – he doesn’t sound like a very close reader of the Daily Stormer. You can obviously say “well, he was just insane.” Okay – and that’s the same explanation for all of these things, going back to the Kennedy assassinations, all of which benefitted the US government, which is also running mind control programs developing ways to create murderers?

Furthermore: the government and media are not claiming he was insane. They are not really blaming me, but Tucker Carlson (who they claim reads me). They are saying that the shooter was driven by ideology – which he read on the internet – to shoot a bunch of random grandmas in a supermarket for no reason. This is despite a history of mental illness, which included his school sending him for a psyche evaluation after he said he wanted to commit a mass murder. So whatever the case, the government and media are not being honest!

As the regular reader is aware, I do not identify as a “conspiracy theorist.” In general, I’m pretty critical of “conspiracy theory” culture. A few months back, I wrote a satire piece about a pretty widespread conspiracy theory that every Walmart in America is connected by an underground tunnel system that links to secret underground bases. You’ll endless amounts of this type of material on the internet (to the point where you begin to wonder if fake conspiracies are not themselves some kind of conspiracy).

We all watched that whole QAnon debacle, something which was clearly a targeted attack on Donald Trump’s supporters. During Joe Biden’s inauguration, I was watching a livestream from a QAnon guy who was claiming that before Biden was sworn in, Trump would pop out from a secret door and be re-inaugurated by the military. That was a lot more interesting than just watching the CNN livestream, but I know as well as anyone that the majority of these people on the internet who get deep into conspiracies are legit kooks. (I don’t think they’re necessarily schizophrenic, it’s just that this society tends to drive people over the edge. Virtually everything that we are told by the media is a lie, and when people realize that, many become susceptible to just believing anything if you lack the intelligence and discernment to parse these things out.)

However, the prevalence of dumb conspiracy theories that does not mean that things you can confirm as fact are not facts just because kooky people talk about them, and it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t ask questions when you have two high-profile mass shootings in a week in the lead-up to an election while the Democrats are trying to strip people of their guns.

Further: I was called a “conspiracy theorist” for saying that the coronavirus was just the flu and that the vax wouldn’t work. I was backing all of that up with data when I said it, but the term was applied to me anyway. So this term “conspiracy theory” is not especially useful. The dialectic should really be drawn between “rational skepticism” and “kookery.” Though you have a spectrum, the difference between the two ends of it would be the amount of both data and logic applied.

Who Benefits?

It’s a trope, but I do think that the question “who benefits?” should always be the starting point when analyzing any world event.

From there, you use available data and tempered, logical analysis to form a picture of what is going on.

We have no mainstream media organization or government agency we can trust to be honest with us, so we don’t have any choice but to analyze information ourselves.

We already have the big picture.

4chan’s /new/ and then /pol/ were both very serious weapons in the war of information, as they allowed people to come together and compare notes, and work together to figure out the root of the world order. Right now, in May of 2022, we have a pretty clear picture of what is happening on the macro scale: we have a group of Jews, pederasts, and transhumanists who are working together to create a unified world government where a tiny elite minority rule over a huddled mass of landless peasants. They have infiltrated the overwhelming majority of governments. This agenda used to exist in semi-secret organizations, being published in dense texts that were not discussed in the mainstream media, but in recent years, it has for the most part come out of the shadows, largely through the World Economic Forum.

The existence of this agenda is now an established fact of reality, and it serves as a heuristic which will often predict and always explain what is going on. For example, I have been saying for ten years that there would have to be some kind of showdown with Russia and China, as these are countries that are not interested in sacrificing sovereignty to a globalist order. That is now officially happening.

Clearly, it is also very important to this international ruling class to ensure that Americans are stripped of both their First and Second Amendment rights. If I was working for these people, I would be arguing that massive, shocking violent events are the only way to do this. When the shooter is white, they blame the First Amendment, and when the shooter is not white, they blame the Second Amendment. It’s obvious that the injection of the “defund/abolish the police” narrative into the George Floyd riots was about drastically increasing black violence in America, which further serves to justify gun control. Overwhelming nonwhite crime is also leading to increasingly negative sentiment towards nonwhite people, which serves to justify more censorship.

Rinse and repeat.

Finally

In closing, I just want to return to my list of things that are happening in America, and state clearly that you can dismiss everything that I wrote about about mind control and still blame the government for these shootings.

In May of 2020 when it became clear that the coronavirus restrictions and the hysterical fear-mongering would last for years, I said that it would cause every form of social ill to skyrocket. A few months later, the mainstream began admitting that it was leading to all types of mental illnesses. I stated that it would lead to increased anti-social violence, including possibly mass shootings. The family of the Buffalo shooter claimed that he was driven insane by the virus restrictions and hysteria. If you combine that with this new revelation of a federal agent being one of his close friends on Discord – probably the one giving him weapons instruction, though that has yet to be confirmed – you don’t need mind control. The federal agent encouraging the act turns it into a government conspiracy, but not one involving MK Ultra-style techniques.

Further, it’s been known for decades that SSRI drugs (Prozac and its spin-offs) drastically increase the likelihood of both suicide and murder. These pills are given to basically any teenager who displays any behavior that the government school system views as negative. Sometimes it is legitimate anti-social behavior, but quite often it is an issue of more intelligent boys getting bored at school. If an investigation were done, I suspect that virtually all of the mass shooters would be found to have been on these drugs.

Then you just have the entire social order, starting with feminism and the destruction of the family, which is designed to destroy human beings. The Texas shooter was from a broken family, living with his grandparents, and was probably also being treated for mental health problems.

One thing is definitely true: these guns do not shoot themselves.
