A few readers are still trying to help me to prove the official Orlando shooting story line. Unable to find videos of the massive presence of ambulances and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) that 50 dead people and 53 wounded people would require, readers are reduced to supplying me with telephone numbers of someone who might know something.

Amid conflicting reports of one shooter vs. several shooters, the proven presence of crisis actors on the scene, the substitution, as in Sandy Hook, of photos and names as proxies for bodies, the interviews by media of only one hospitalized shooting victim as proxy for the 52 others, internet reports that many of the alleged victims have no social media presence, etc. and so on, we are reduced to what strangers tell us on the telephone! This constitutes powerfu evidence that we cannot substantiate the story we are told.

As I said in the beginning, I do not know what happened or why. What I see in Orlando is the same pattern as in the other events: no bodies, questionable shootings, crisis actors, an official story set at the moment of the event’s announcement, no EMTs, conflicting testimony, no investigation by media, just endless repetition of a set story.

We know that governments lie in order to serve their agendas. To mention only a few recent proven government lies: the Gulf of Tonkin North Vietnamese attack on a US Navy ship, Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, Assad’s use of chemical weapons, Iranian nukes, Russian invasion of Ukraine. These lies are monstrous. They resulted in wars that killed thousands of US soldiers and killed, maimed, and displaced millions of Vietnamese and Muslims, some of whom are now overrunning Europe as refugees from Washington’s wars. Other of the government’s lies brought risk of war with more powerful militaries such as Russia’s and Iran’s.

It seems to me that a government that will lie on this scale will lie on smaller scales as well, such as Orlando, Boston, San Bernandino.

If I had to bet on what Orlando is about, I would place my bet on gun control. Sandy Hook also led to a big push for gun control. The victims being children was a plus for gun control, but apparently 20 was not a large enough number. The absence of wounded children did not raise any questions. Lanza’s kill ratio was 100 percent. The Orlando shooter’s ratio was just under 50 percent.

The Orlando shooting produced a reported 103 casualties. Moreover, the victims are not children in a school, but people having fun in a night club. In other words, everyone is threatened by guns in the hands of lone nuts, but not by guns in the hands of authorities—despite the fact that US police killed more Americans during 8 years of the Iraq war than the US lost soldiers in combat.

Some time ago I wrote that the Second Amendment was the only remaining provision in the Bill of Rights, which became part of the US Constitution in order to protect citizens from government. I made the point that the Second Amendment is inconsistent with a police state and that as
Americans, Congress, and the legal community have accepted the police state, the Second Amendment would have to go, along with habeas corpus, due process, privacy, and all the rest.

I also noted how strange it is that progressives and the left-wing are on the side of the police state and want to disarm American citizens. The way the issue is now positioned, the “moral” element in the population demand gun control and only the immoral “gun nut” portion want to allow crazy people to continue mass slaughter.

Some time ago I concluded that the American people are too gullible to be capable of preserving liberty. Nevertheless, I have continued to try to help people break out of the Matrix that controls their consciousness.

One of the most frustrating aspects of many Americans is their naive disbelief in conspiracy because “someone would talk.” It boggles the mind that anyone would think that people involved in a successful conspiracy to achieve their agenda would blow the whistle on their success.

Uninvolved people who might stumble upon the conspiracy know that it is their voice against the government’s and that credibility, career, job, and perhaps life itself is at stake. Just look at the fate of whistleblowers who disclose government crimes. Despite their legal protection under US federal law, they are mercilessly prosecuted. Just look at the invective thrown at people such as myself who try to raise the public’s consciousness.

Moreover, there are people who talk, such as 118 firemen, policemen, first responders, and WTC maintanence personnel who were in the towers and report hearing and experiencing massive explosions one after the other. We even have an organization, Firemen for 9/11 Truth:

The chairman, vice chairman, and legal counsel of the 9/11 Commission talked. They said that the government lied to the committee, withheld information from the committee, and set the committee up to fail.

We even have the owner of the World Trade Center stating on TV that the decison was made to pull WTC Building 7. That means the building was wired for controlled demolition.

None of this talk had any impact. Media ignored it or explained it away. My favorite example is the media explanation of Silverstein’s statement on TV that the decision was made to pull the building. Media said that what Silverstein said or meant to say was that “the decision was made to pull the firemen out of the building.” There was no fire of any significance in the building, and there were no firemen in the building to be called out. Watching the building come down in a controlled demolition you do not see a building in flames.


Foreknowledge was also associated with WTC Building 7’s destruction. BBC TV reported the destruction of Building 7 about 20 minutes prior to its actual destruction with the BBC announcer shown standing in front of still standing Building 7. There are so many anomalies associated with Building 7 that the building’s destruction is not even mentioned in official reports.

Congress, the legal community, the President, and the American people did not demand an investigation based on the intriguing admissions and testimony from people intimately connected with the event.

The “dancing Israelis” also talked. These were the suspected Mossad agents who were observed filming and celebrating the airplane strikes on the towers. They were apprehended and arrested, but their obvious foreknowledge of the event did not fit the official story. They were quietly sent back to Israel where they appeared on Israeli TV and said that they were sent to New York to film the event. You can witness this at about the 6 minute mark on this video:

Of course, the translation could be deceptive, but the subscripts are there in Hebrew, so anyone who knows Hebrew can see if they correspond.

There is another interesting element in this film at about the 5:45 mark, one that the film-maker does not notice. The film shows the film we have all seen of an airliner hitting one of the towers. Notice that the airplane enters the building without any damage to the airliner or the building and explodes only after it is inside the building. Notice that the airliner hits the tower at an angle that has been calculated to have resulted in impact with eight floors, each reported to contain an acre of concrete, plus all the steel girders and supports, and the airliner does not break apart. The film shows that the airliner just effortlessly enters the building. How is this possible? Wouldn’t the impact have resulted in the airliner breaking up and falling to the ground below? Why would the airliner explode only after it miraculously passed fully into the building and not upon impact with the building?

Consider how many years passed before anomalies such as this were even noticed.

In this video Jim Fetzer overviews recent events ascribed to terrorists. Whether or not he convinces you, it is worth watching just as a lesson in learning how to notice anomalies in official accounts.

Unless Amerians become more observant and act upon what they observe, American liberty is doomed.

  1. Wouldn’t the impact have resulted in the airliner breaking up and falling to the ground below?

    No, the high momentum and relative frailty of the aircraft means that it will penetrate the building’s façade as it is breaking up. Try throwing a raw egg at a chicken-wire fence: It doesn’t bounce off; it passes through where it can.

  2. “All governments lie,” said the late I. F. Stone, and the U.S. Government is right up there with the worst of ’em.

    If bullshit were music, Uncle Sam would be John Philip Sousa.

    However much of the various columns and comments in UNZ turn out to be racist or xenophobic bullcrap , these still are the fault of the quislings and apparatchiks playing wizard of Oz in DC. They seem not to understand that once they were proved to be rampant sociopaths, anybody will begin to believe every ugly accusation, all being well deserved whether true or not. They imagine the use of cats paws and cutouts conceals their industrial scale rape, theft and murder.

    Here in Australia with the MSM we were never shown any bodies or even blood in the first few days, at the least.

    And that just proves that the people will except without any evidence any future propaganda lies of atrocities that the evil elite have in store for us.

  5. So, are you saying the thousands of hours of police in the street/ambulance/people carried away from the scene/hospital news updates are all fictional, or from other events?

  6. Mr. Anon says:

    “Here in Australia with the MSM we were never shown any bodies or even blood in the first few days, at the least.”

    When there is a horrific car accident, does the local news station show the mangled, decapitated corpses? When there is a garden-variety murder, do they show the dying man bleeding out from his wounds. Do they show the blood-stained walls and carpets at the scene of an axe-murder? TV never shows that stuff, not in America anyway. Does that mean that car accidents and murders never happen?

    PCR goes off his rocker from time to time.

    So, are you saying the thousands of hours of police in the street/ambulance/people carried away from the scene/hospital news updates are all fictional, or from other events?

    PCR writes very clearly so it’s petty clear whta he said. He said that none of you guys ever provide any real evidence for the claims. For example, you provide no links, nothing at all verifiable.

  9. Kiza says:

    Personally, I have no doubt that in Orlando crisis actors have been used by the media. There is no doubt that almost all of what we see in MSM has gone from written and spoken lies to created images (an image/video speaks a thousand words). I still reserve my judgement on whether Orlando was real or not, but I sincerely appreciate PCRs effort to both consider an alternative possibility and weigh the evidence for and against the alternative version. Without great people such as PCR the regime would have convinced me that Orlando was real. Every mind saved from propaganda is a win for the forces of good in this world.

  10. Old fogey says:

    Thank you very much, Mr. Roberts, for this post and for publishing the link containing Dr. Fetzer’s talk in Seattle. There is no question that the press and the rest of the media are simply not doing their job at a time when the government is clearly deceiving the public. Exactly how all this came about is one of the major questions facing our nation.

  11. Anonymous • Disclaimer says:

    There’s no footage of ambulances. There are lots of police cars in the footage.

  12. What does not giving bona fide crazies access to lethal weapons have to do with liberty?

    Also, would love to have an example from the author of a righteous use of personal weapons agains the government tyranny over the last, say, 50 years. Just to illustrate the point, please?
