Join "Mind Over Murder" hosts Bill Thomas and Kristin Dilley for a discussion of "Mass Shootings: Where Do We Go from Here?" Among the issues covered are whether law enforcement and the media should be releasing the so-called manifestos of mass shooters, and how the media should be educating the public as to the physical damage being done to shooting victims by AR-15 style rifles and other high velocity weapons of war. Does publishing the rantings of mass killers benefit the public in any way? Do these high powered weapons even have a place in the civilian world? Should they be sold to anyone beyond the military and law enforcement?

When we think of the holidays, most of us think of good food, family gatherings and beautiful holiday decorations. For many, it's the happiest time of the year; but for others it's a very different story. The holiday season can be a difficult time for many, especially those grieving the death of a loved one. On this episode of the Raising Joy podcast, we're joined by Hannah Boyd, CCLS, a child life specialist, and Jennifer Hayes, MDiv, BCC, Director of Spiritual Care at Cook Children's. They share their insights on how parents can talk to children and navigate grief as a family during a time of the year that is supposed to be full of joy.

Today's Headlines: As of the latest update, Israel and Hamas are on the verge of finalizing a deal to temporarily halt the ongoing conflict. Israel's Cabinet has given approval for the release of around 50 women and minors among the 240 hostages held by Hamas, reciprocated by the release of 150 Palestinian prisoners by Israel. This includes teenage boys, girls, and women, arrested during West Bank raids framed as counter-terror operations against Hamas. Israel plans to allow 300 aid trucks daily into Gaza through the Rafah crossing and provide more fuel. The truce might extend if Hamas releases additional hostages though Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to resume military operations once the truce concludes. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is set to visit Israel next week. In a legal development, Maryland's 4th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a stringent gun law, deeming the handgun licensing statute, enacted in response to the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting, a violation of the 2nd Amendment. Similar legal challenges loom over other Maryland gun laws, including the assault weapons ban and restrictions on carrying guns in public. The CEO of Binance, the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange, pleaded guilty to a felony related to the platform's failure to prevent money laundering. CEO Changpeng Zhao resigned, and Binance agreed to a $4 billion settlement, acknowledging violations of the Bank Secrecy Act. The company will undergo monitoring and compliance measures for five years. In the realm of corporate drama, negotiations are underway at OpenAI to potentially reinstate CEO Sam Altman. Investors and employees, including many threatening to quit, are advocating for Altman's return while OpenAI's widely-used product, Chat GPT, experienced global outages.

Recently The Washington Post released graphic images, videos, and audio recordings from mass shootings, in a report called “Terror on Repeat.” Should news outlets attempt to push awareness through the use of graphic imagery? If so, do survivor families have the right to refuse to let photos of their friends or family members be released? The answer, of course, is complicated. Complexity and nuance can be hard to find in the news and social media. Like so many things, the real answer comes down to sovereignty: the rights of the people directly involved to make choices about what actions are taken, and to what end. In this special encore episode, Sandy Hook parent survivor Nelba Márquez-Greene and I discuss what cries of “release the photos!” means to survivors who have already had their private lives invaded, and their peoples' images co-opted for others' use. That's just part of our conversation, and all of it is timely: we discuss what it's like to live such a public grief, and what it means to find joy - and hope - in an often violent world. Don't miss it. In this episode we cover: The importance of telling your own story in the ways you want to tell it (no matter who demands a soundbite) Supporting each other: the difference between an “inside the house” friend and an “on the porch” friend.

Hey there friends and weirdos! This week Nile tells Kyle all about a man named Mike Adams, a guy who refers to himself as the "Health Ranger" and runs a number of conspiracy theory websites. What would you like: some Y2K doomsday prepping? Sandy Hook denial conspiracy? "Alternative" medicine? 9/11 trutherism? Mike's got it all, baby! And he'll spew it all loud and proud on the hundreds of absurd websites he's been running, dating all the way back to the 1990s. We discuss all this and more!
This week, we're discussing The Washington Post's controversial decision to publish graphic images from certain mass killings. That's why I reached out to Cam Edwards, editor of Bearing Arms and longtime newsman, to give his opinion on the story and discuss mine as well. Cam recently interviewed Parkland father Ryan Petty about The Post's decision and how some families have reacted to it. He said Petty and several other families were disturbed by The Post publishing the images, especially since not everyone affected was directly contacted by the paper. Cam argued that The Post's decision to selectively publish only pictures from mass shootings that featured AR-15s made the effort transparently political. We discussed how pictures from other mass killings are almost certainly equally disturbing. But The Post singled out AR-15s as part of a clear effort to get those particular guns banned, something that was underlined by an editorial published alongside the pictures. Cam said he didn't view The Post's efforts as journalism. Instead, he argued the paper was engaged in direct activism. Plus, Contributing Writer Jake Fogleman and I talk about the strange reasoning a federal judge used to uphold Colorado's gun waiting period. Special Guest: Cam Edwards.

The day after the Sandy Hook shooting, mom of five Shannon Watts started a Facebook group. Her message was that all Americans can and should do more to reduce gun violence with common sense reforms. The online conversation turned into a movement of moms, dads, students, families, concerned citizens, and survivors working together with partners in the gun violence prevention movement to end this uniquely American crisis. The group is called Moms Demand Action, and is a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence. We are talking to DeeDee Cooper, member of our local Moms Demand Action Kansas chapter, who talks about the ways local moms can get involved. Meet DeeDee Cooper DeeDee has three children and four grandchildren. She grew up in Omaha but has lived in many cities, settling in Kansas City 24 years ago.

The mass shootings that continue to plague our country call for drastic measures, contends author and psychoanalyst Gerald Schoenewolf, but they don't involve confiscating guns or preventing law-abiding citizens from owning guns.As of Oct. 26, the U.S. has had at least 565 mass shootings so far this year, according to the Gun Violence Archive – or about two mass shootings a day.Those numbers came out a day after a deranged U.S. Army reservist killed at least 18 people at a bowling alley and bar in Lewiston, Maine. According to officials, the suspect, Robert Card, 40, believed that people, even members of his own family, were out to get him and were calling him a pedophile. Mental illness is at the heart of many of these killing events, Dr. Schoenewolf and other experts contend, and so they say steps aimed at dealing with those issues are what's needed.On the Lean to the Left podcast, Dr. Schoenewolf, the author of "The Mass Killer: Six Case Histories that Tell Us Why," contends that troubled family issues often are what results in such shootings and he advocates some controversial steps to deal with them, including:Requiring all couples who want to have children to first obtain a license from the federal government.Requiring all couples to undergo training to help them raise their children.Requiring all interest groups that are advocating for specific political actions to register and obtain permission from the government.The problem in the U.S., he says, is not the proliferation and availability of guns, but rather the fact that many of the perpetrators of such shootings come from troubled families in which they were mistreated during their childhood."Most of these mass killers had early traumas, in the first few years of life," he says, adding that the "divided culture" that exists today serves to compound those problems,"When you have a divided culture in which the liberals and conservatives are always fighting, everyone suffers too, because there's constant restlessness," Dr. Schoenewolf says on the podcast. "In the country and all kinds of other things that are happening and more violence is happening all the time. People get angry because they're driving on the highway and they lose it, and they start killing each other because they're following too close behind the other car. Somebody goes up to a door and knocks at the wrong door, and they get shot through the door. People are restless today and quick to violence."Dr. Schoenewolf points out that a barber needs a license to cut hair and if you want to go fishing, you need a fishing license. But there are no such requirements for one of the most complicated acts that an individual can undergo -- raising children."iI parents had to be licensed, you'd have, you'd be able to weed out, say, schizophrenic parents or borderlines, or bipolars, psychopaths. You'd be able to weed out parents who are not going to be able to have healthy children. And you'd, and you also could have parent training," he says.So the government would decide who could and could not have children? "I think the state would have to have special centers for child rearing where children who were taken away from their parents would be raised by experts who would be trained in how to raise children," he explains."These are radical solutions, but we have a radical situation in our country. Desperate times call for desperate measures," says Dr. Schoenewolf, who is the author of 30 books, including 14 on psychology and philosophy and nine novels.This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/4719048/advertisement

Conspiracy theory- which we will here define as attributing the occurrence of events or phenomena to sinister or secret organisations- infects all parts of the political spectrum and exists across the World. However, to a certain portion of the American right, conspiracy theory does not merely influence their thinking; it is their thinking. Any government programme or action is interpreted as an insidious attempt by a secret cabal of bureaucrats to enhance their own power. Jones' pronouncements- most notoriously his claims that the victims of the Sandy Hook school shooting were paid actors- are so strange and extreme that they serve as a way of allowing people to push conspiracy theory to the far-right, and of allowing people to claim that their own views are based in truth and objectivity. Any suggestion of government conspiracy at all is now pilloried as crazy and fringe. But where does this leave us when the Government, and the establishment media, does act dishonestly, as they do from time to time? Clearly, we cannot live in a society where the public almost by default does not trust anything the government tells it. But nor can we live in a society where the public blithely accepts everything authority figures do or say, either. We all have a responsibility to examine information critically, and this is important whether it comes from Alex Jones or Emily Maitlis, Tucker Carlson or Chris Cuomo.My guest today is Elizabeth Williamson. Elizabeth is a features writer for the New York Times who has covered Jones extensively, especially in relation to his legal troubles surrounding the Sandy Hook School shooting. As well as taking about Jones, we discuss the importance of conspiracy theory to the American far right, the rise of fringe movements in the country since the 1990s, and how the mainstream media can begin to regain the trust it has lost.

As the clock struck 11 p.m. Eastern Time, Austin brings to the forefront the breaking news that has just unfolded - the United States launching airstrikes in the Middle East, targeting Iranian-backed military entities. The urgency in Austin's voice reflects the gravity of the situation, as he analyses the initial reports and contemplates the potential repercussions of these military actions. The episode also revisits the ongoing and tumultuous Israel-Palestine conflict, shedding light on the varying and often extreme perspectives that have been shared in the heat of the moment. Austin ensures that no stone is left unturned, no opinion ignored, as he strives to provide a balanced and critical analysis of the situation.

My name is Austin Adams, and thank you so much for listening today. On today's episode, we have some immediate breaking news, which we will get to in just a moment. We will also be discussing the recent mass shooting that happened at a bowling alley by a military reservist. From that, we will discuss some of the history surrounding some of these actions, where some are suspecting that there's some sort of MKUltra type of tie in. I don't know exactly what I believe, but we'll watch about some of that, but I do know what I believe about this, which is that it seems like a pretty consistent pattern that we're seeing every single time we see one of these mass shootings, which is that one month. Or multiple types of psychiatric medications are included for almost every single one of them. So, we will discuss that, some other people calling about that, and then jumping into what that breaking news is. So, just moments ago, in the last 20 minutes as I am speaking here this evening at approximately 11 p. m. Eastern Time, the United States has officially launched attacks in the Middle East. Bombing. In conducting airstrikes against what they are saying is Iranian backed military organizations. So we'll look at what has come out so far on that and what the potential implications of that is. Because to me, this seems like Everything that we thought and feared about all of the current military engagements and what could come of it are coming true. So, on the back of that, we will jump into some of the discussions around the, you know, continuing updates and some more of this will be just kind of around the The commentary that's happening around the Israel and Palestinian conflict. So we'll discuss some of that. Um, some of the crazy statements people are saying, um, on both sides that I completely disagree with. So all of that and more, but first go ahead and hit that subscribe button. I would appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. If you are already subscribed to leave a five star review, it's about the only way that we can get up in the rankings is just by listening and leaving the review. So I appreciate it. Um, That's what I got. So without further ado, let's jump into it. The Addams Archive All right. So the very first topic that we're going to get into today is obviously going to be the breaking news that the US has conducted multiple airstrikes against Iranian funded militant organizations, or at least that's what they're saying so far. So let's go ahead and watch this clip or read a couple articles, and then we'll discuss the implications of this because to me, what this means is. Okay. Is the United States is now at war. This means that the U. S. is now engaging in military conflict just, like, almost a year later. Like, we could, I wonder if we had a ticker up on a wall in, in, you know, the White House that said, days since military conflict and death. I wonder how many days like, you know, like one of those tickers from, you know, days, days since an accident in a, uh, old industry warehouse, like days since killing innocent civilians for the United States. I wonder how long, what that number would get up to, because it doesn't Didn't even reach a year since we pulled out of Afghanistan. That we are now finding ourselves back in a sand hellhole, conducting military airstrikes. Seemingly, I don't know. Let's watch this video, then we'll jump into it together. And here we... Well, Jennifer, this sounds like huge news. Sean, we can report based on senior military sources that U. S. warplanes have carried out airstrikes tonight inside Syria against Iranian proxy forces. We don't know the number of strikes. We were told earlier today to expect that perhaps F 15s and F 16s would be involved in the airstrikes. But we don't have confirmation yet how, about how many warplanes, but those strikes have been carried out. I'm told, uh, it is in response to the more than dozen strikes against U. S. bases. Uh, the message is a clear message designed, uh, to Iran and its proxy forces to stop carrying out these, uh, drone and rocket attacks against U. S. Um, but I'm told that the planes have safely left the area and that the airstrikes, uh, are complete at this time. Um, they were, uh, targeting multiple locations inside Syria and Iran, Iranian proxy forces, Sean. So, that right there should terrify you. The United States of America is now at, they have entered the chat, they have now conducted military airstrikes that is going to cause internal, like some of the biggest concerns that people have had is that, does, do these terrorist organizations have sleeper cells within the United States that they're going to enact acts of terrorism on our soil here because the border's just been. Purposefully and literally wide open for three years now, it's, it's unbelievable. So right as, as all of this is breaking out in Palestine, right, as the war drums were being beat by all of the large conservative entities, the, the Ben Shapiro's, the, you know, the, the Dennis Prager's, the, you know, all of the, the, the two largest entities in the conservative side of things have been calling for war. And now. We're getting it. Is this what you wanted? To see your sons and daughters go to war? 900. US military soldiers have been deployed overseas now, in case something happens. Well, guess what? Something's going to happen now. When we conduct airstrikes, when we are killing others, there's going to be retaliations. Now, I understand that I get that there was a drone strike that was conducted that injured 24 military, 24 of our US soldiers. So I get that I didn't see that there was any casualties. I maybe I'm wrong there. And maybe I stand corrected, but but I did not see any casualties, everything that I saw said injuries. So there's 24 injuries. Now does that And listen, I'm not somebody who's not against defending yourself, whether that's in a fist fight on the street because somebody talks shit and pushes you or throws a punch or whatever. Like I get it. A hundred percent. We have every right to defend ourselves. Is defending ourselves conducting F15 airstrikes on some random potential terrorist group that I don't know, like, so the logistics of this, I haven't dove super deep into, let's go ahead and let's read some of these articles because maybe we can educate ourselves about this as we go along. But this is terrifying to me, guys, I absolutely don't want to see as I've said, and what we've seen this whole time is it's been like the the war drum beating conservatives calling for for in the heightened escalations, we're not even going to war. At this very moment, we very well will be very shortly, but we're not going to war at this very moment with Hamas. We're going to war with some random group, but but guess what allowed this to happen. The war drums were being beaten by all the large conservative influencers, which which is so weird to me, right and that that William will get to this in a minute. And I guess it makes sense a little bit, you know, I've always said, you know, I'm not traditional conservative individual, I just find myself Aligning with conservatives at this very moment, but most of my ideologies and belief systems fall much closer to Uh libertarian I would say is like, you know less government less government intervention less taxes if any um Less military conflicts, you know, i'm pretty anti war at this point in my life I just haven't seen a single war historically that has caused something positive And most of or even had an effect whatsoever like In the last, I don't know, 80 years since, since world war two, have we seen an engagement that had a positive outcome? I don't believe so. And all I've seen is, is, is pointless bloodshed for the improved. stock prices of Raytheon and Lockheed Martin. That's what I see. I don't see any purpose for war at this point. And that's not to say that there ever hasn't been. That's not to say that there won't ever will be. But to me, it's just every conflict we've been in has been a losing war. Vietnam. Uh, you want to go into the war in Afghanistan, the war in Iraq, what, what, what did we accomplish? What happened? What, you know, the Gulf War, where was there any positive outcome from these, these engagements that we're getting into? And now we're actively seeking them. Right, saying that there's okay, there's a drone strike against a military base, um, that had a few people get hurt. And again, let's let's dive into that because maybe I stand corrected. But that was the last thing that I read. There's 24 individuals. So let's just read this and we'll get into it. US strikes Iran linked strike sites in Syria in retaliation for attacks on US troops. In response to ongoing attacks by Iranian backed militia groups, US military forces conducted self defense. I like how they frame it. immediately. They conducted self defense strikes. Like, was somebody actively about to shoot at us? Like, it's not self defense strikes if they send a drone, a few people get a little hurt, and then all of a sudden you send F 15s two days later. Like, that doesn't seem like self defense strikes to me. It's like some, some guy, you know. throws a smacks you in the face. So two days later, you go kick his door in and beat the shit out of him in his living room. Like it's not exactly a self defense strike. But I digress. The United States prioritizes the safety of its personnel and will not tolerate such attacks, taking necessary measures to protect its people. The strikes were narrowly tailored. Wow, the strikes were narrowly tailored to protect and defend us personnel in Iraq and Syria and do not indicate a shift in approach to the Israel Hamas conflict. No, no, no, no, we know we got you guys all hyped up about this war over here. We're not doing we're not doing that right now. We're not going to fight those guys. But we're going to punch this guy in the face over here in the meantime, and maybe, maybe when we're done with that, or simultaneously, while we're also funding Ukraine and funding Israel and funding all of these other organizations while they're going to war Taiwan, simultaneously, like, let's just go fight three different fronts at the same time. And anyways, so this comes from ground news ground news says that this is primarily only being reported. from left leaning organizations. At this point, it says 83 percent of the sources are leaning left. I really like ground news, by the way, there was one news media that I would pay for right now, it would be ground. It's ground. news. If you go to their website, they basically give you a full breakdown of the is how many new sources have come out? Are they left leaning? Are they right leaning? Are they center? What is the bias distribution? What are the blind spots from the right? Thank you. Reporting media compared to the left media. Like if there's a hundred percent reporting by the right and zero percent reporting by the left, it's pretty much a media blackout. So it will highlight those things for you. Pretty, pretty cool stuff. Probably the most. Uh, Non biased news source that I've seen and the most well done. It's very well put together website, too. So good on them So let's jump into one of these do we want to do Associated Press CBS Las Vegas Sun? Probably the Department of Defense. Let's go there and then Atlas News is another one So I'll just go ahead and read their highlight here, but it does say from Atlas News That the United States aircraft have carried out airstrikes against two facilities in eastern Syria used by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and affiliated groups in response to over 15 drone and rocket attacks against American forces in the region. In a statement, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin stated that the president has no higher priority than the safety of the U. S. personnel, and he directed today's actions to make clear the United States will not tolerate such attacks and will defend itself, its personnel, and its interests. Huh. They'll read some of their, um, it says much like Zionists and they're just looking through some of the comments here. Yeah. Probably nothing of value there. Um, but let's go ahead and read the actual statement by the secretary of defense directly from the U S department of defense website title being secretary of defense, Lloyd J. Austin, the third statement on U S military strikes in Eastern Syria. And here you go, says today at President Biden's direction, U. S. military forces conducted self defense strikes on two facilities in eastern Syria used by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. and affiliated groups. These precision self defense, I want you to like, I want to highlight where the propaganda gets just sprinkled in here with these adjectives. The precision self defense strikes are a response to a series of ongoing and mostly unsuccessful attacks against us personnel in Iraq and Syria by Iranian backed militia groups. Again, Iranian backed Militia groups that began on October 17th. As a result of these attacks, one us citizen contractor died from a cardiac incident while sheltering in place. What the one guy who died was a contractor who died from myocarditis. Um, it says 21 us personnel suffered from minor injuries. But they've all since returned to duty. So within a day or two, they're all back. Um, the president has no, so one guy died of a vaccine shot. Uh, because you know, they're all required to get it when in the military. And again, that's hearsay. I don't know if that's true. Um, but while sheltering in place and then 21 other people suffered from minor injuries. So, you know, their ears hurt or something. The president has no higher priority than the safety of us personnel. And he directed today's action to make clear that the United States will not tolerate such attacks and will defend itself as personnel and its interests. The United States does not see conflict and has no intention nor desire to engage in further hostilities, but these Iranian backed attacks against us forces are unacceptable and must. Stop. Iran wants to hide its hand and deny its role in these attacks against our forces. We will not let them. Hmm. If attacks by Iran's proxies against US forces continue, we will not hesitate to take further necessary measures to protect our people. These narrowly tailored, narrowly tailored strikes and self defense were intended solely to protect and defend U. S. personnel in Iraq and Syria. They are separate and distinct from the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas and do not constitute a shift in our approach to the Israel Hamas conflict. We continue to urge all state and non state entities not to take action that would escalate into a broader regional conflict. Conflict. So wait, wait, wait, you guys don't do anything back to us. We're just going to do this thing. And I like how they say, we will not, it said these Iranian back to tax against us forces are unacceptable and must. Are unacceptable and must stop. Iran wants to hide its hand and deny its role in these attacks against our forces, but we will not let them deny their role? Okay, so there's the Secretary of Defense's claim as to why we are now entering a military conflict, right? Oh, don't don't do anything back to us, they said, right? We really hope nobody feels the need to, you know, what did they say? We continue to urge all state and non state entities not to take action that would escalate into a broader regional conflict. That's what they just said. Oh, you mean like bombing people? as a self defense mechanism when nobody was hurt besides one guy who had a heart attack, probably because you forced him to get a COVID vaccine. Like what we're what are we doing here, guys, besides escalating military conflict, but you get to sit here and urge all state and non state entities not to take action that would escalate into a broader regional conflict. Oh, so you want to engage in military conflict and have no Response back right now. To be clear, Iran is not completely uninvolved in this Israel, Hamas, Palestine conflict, right? They are not. Not a player in the game. They're, they're very much so the opposition when we're talking about there's two sides to this, right? We're talking about Palestine, Iran, uh, China, like all of these, these brick players, all are there. Siding on the opposite end of this, right? So that's why we're going to see very likely in the very near future, China move into Taiwan, just as Russia's moving into Ukraine, just as, uh, Israel's going to be moving into Gaza and into Palestine and, and so don't get it twisted, this is a escalation of military force that. Absolutely has to do with the Israel Hamas conflict. They're going to try and frame it as, as this completely different entity, but really they're not, yeah, they're not bombing Hamas. They're making a statement to Iran. So when they're sitting here going, Oh, well don't, don't respond back to it. It's like, yeah. Okay, well, you just bombed an entire city or what? I guess we'll find out these two locations that they're talking about here. So not an entire city. But the US is now at war, they will they have now entered the conflict, we are now in a state where we should absolutely expect retaliation. You know what other wars started with 900 900 soldiers being deployed? Just 900 guys. We're not, we're not, we're not starting anything. We're just sending 900 people over there. You know what other wars started with that? Vietnam. Vietnam. Same number, same number of people, right? And so It's this is terrifying. This is absolutely giving merit to the idea that this will further escalate right as we see China moving into Taiwan with escalating military tensions there as we had a Chinese fighter jet just fly within 10 feet of a US bomber yesterday or today that they released footage of. So yeah, we are. Absolutely moving towards a large scale, extremely horrifying war. And I guess we should have seen this coming since Russia and Ukraine. And some of us even talked about that. I had several podcasts labeled World War Three, right? And that's not hyperbole. That's not exaggeration. This has been escalating. And escalating and escalating. And as we're going to see China moving to Taiwan at the perfect time because when you have US military aid Your tax dollars being spread between Russia and Ukraine, between Israel and Hamas. Like, come on guys. Like, why do we have to fund Israel? They're, they're billions of trillions of dollars worth more money than Hamas is. And, and how is our tax dollars going to help anything besides escalate tensions? So, again, don't get it twisted. They're trying to frame this as if it has absolutely nothing to do with Israel and Hamas. Yeah, it doesn't have to do with Israel and Hamas. It has to do with who is backing Palestine, which is Iran. Right? You go to the Iranian, uh, Twitter, and you'll see that the, the, they're condemning completely the actions by Israel. Um, in a lot of this. So is Iran absolutely in the United States absolutely escalating tensions together is horrifying. It's not just some one off thing. We're very likely going to see retaliation from this. All right. Don't know what to do with that information. But that's what's happening. All right. Another thing that's happened recently is that there has been a Mass shooting. If you didn't hear about this, I'm sure you did in Maine, where a individual essentially, uh, let's, let's go ahead and read this article that comes from, uh, Atlas news, which says authorities, clear scene in Bowdoin, Maine. So, uh, basically all of these officers were surrounding this man's house. 24 hours after this happened, um, it was like 51 people were, uh, injured. Um, I believe the last count that I saw was like 22 people were dead. Um, but let's see if we can get the official numbers on that. Uh, but. They were surrounding his house. They were, they were completely, uh, they were sitting there trying to negotiate with him to move him out of his house and he was not even there. There was whispers that this guy took his own life and that didn't happen at this very moment. October 26th. He is still at large. He is still out there. Now it says authorities have cleared the scene at Meadow Road in Bowdoin, B O W D O I N, Maine, following the search of several properties in the area, meaning that Lewiston mass shootings suspect Robert Card remains at large. Early this morning, local and federal authorities surrounded a run down home along the road, calling for Card to come out, leading many to believe that he had been located. This is law enforcement vehicles. This is a tweet. This is law enforcement vehicles leaving the scene here on Meadow Road. According to Aaron Katursky, police found nothing inside the residence they searched as of right now. Robert Card is still on the run. Main State Police later later tweeted that law enforcement officials are currently on Meadow Road in Bowdoin to execute several search warrants. The announcement being heard over a loudspeaker are standard search warrant announcements when executing a warrant to ensure the safety of all involved. The statement did include, however, that it is unknown whether Robert Card is in any of the homes law enforcement will search. Law enforcement officials are simply doing their due diligence by tracking down every lead in an effort to locate and apprehend the card. So this was like, a big smoke and mirror show. Trying to show that they're like, potentially have an idea of where this man was. But they forgot that maybe... Within 24 hours, you should probably have been in this house within an hour, two hours. I don't know. It seems like, you know, I could have gotten in my car and drove 15 hours or however long it takes to get to Maine. Uh, to, to, to see if he was there quicker than the police. That seems pretty wild to me. So there starts to come some conversations around this, right? One thing that we see come up constantly, every single time there's a mass shooter, we find out that there's mental health issues, right? Which. To be fair, of course, there's mental health issues in order for you to pick up a weapon and mercilessly slaughter civilians, you have to have something that's going on with inside of you. That's not a normal human behavior. That's not normally within the capacity of humanity to be able to conduct such a horrific act. Right. Now, what makes this worse is this man was a firearms instructor and he had 20 years of military service. I believe in the reserves, so maybe take that with a grain of salt, but the fact that he was a firearms instructor, uh, obviously gives more terrifying merit to, you know, his ability to conduct something as atrocious as this act. Uh, so let's go ahead and listen a little bit to this. This comes from the, Always loved info wars Let's go ahead and see what they have to say because they start to tie it in a little bit to The MK ultra stuff which I'm quite surprised Alex Jones to be honest is treading in any sort of direction on a mass shooting towards questioning literally anything because of his 1 billion dollar lawsuit that A judge just said he cannot declare bankruptcy to get out of like, there's two things that you can't get out of declaring bankruptcy with is student loans and making a statement about a mass shooting, having the potential to be a conspiracy. Ooh, crazy. Here it is. Subject. We don't know that. And you know why? Because the C here we go. I'll start from the beginning. Is this MK ultra? Was he a mind control subject? We don't know that. And you know why? Because the CIA under that program, MK ultra MK, Naomi and others admittedly trained people to be assassins and mass shooters, and we know Sirhan Sirhan was drugged up and was just a decoy shooter that's come out and I'm not saying this was MK ultra, I'm not saying that. I'm saying, because there's a history of that, and Adam Lanza, the Sandy Hook shooter, was involved with the CIA, so was his family. That's in mainstream news, look it up. Uh, the Unabomber, Theodore Kaczynski, was in the MKUltra program. Source, Washington Post, LA Times. The stories are so old, you just have to go to the search engine and type in Unabombers CIA and then click images and you'll see LA Times, Washington Post. You can even see newscasts from the 90s about it as well. And it goes on and on and on and on. Uh, the shooter at the Aurora movie theater, the Batman shooters. Dad ran the government brain interface program and he was a volunteer in a mind control experiment. I'm not saying that's what happened there. I'm just saying it's weird. This continues to go on. So We need to investigate, we need to look into here, uh, exactly who this individual is, Robert Card of Maine. Yeah, for sure. But I want to get into the tragic events that we have just seen unfold, uh, in Maine. There's a lot of different angles to this and a lot of different takeaways. You have an individual and they're saying they think it's him, even mainstream news is calling him the shooter, but I think we can still say that's alleged. That's how our system works. Maine massacre gunman Robert Card, that's the Daily Mail, was committed to a mental hospital after hearing voices. Firearms instructor, military firearms instructor, spent two weeks in a mental health facility this summer before killing at least 22 people. Now they're saying the number's down to 18. I hope that's correct. More than 60 wounded. More than 60 wounded, and then they talk about the entire state of Maine being on lockdown because he is at large, but now they think he went across the border to Massachusetts. So the answer is armed citizens, not disarmed citizens, and even though mass shootings are statistically up because they didn't really happen until the 1980s, it's still a very rare form of dying, but nonetheless, terrible if you're wounded or killed. So, again. Is this MKUltra? Was he a mind control subject? We don't know that, and you know why? Because the CIA under that program, MKUltra, MKNaomi, and others, admittedly trained people to be assassins and mass shooters. And we know Sirhan Sirhan was drugged up. And we're just a decoy shooter that's come out and I'm all right. So we listened to some of that already All right. So yeah, pretty pretty crazy. Um And not that crazy allegations because you understand everything that he's saying is factual right those shooters that he's talking about Some of that I didn't know but you know, you go back to the mk ultra stuff You know, even charles manson was a part of the mk ultra um brainwashing mind control experiments that were happening, uh, dosing him with LSD. There's, there's a whole, uh, pretty, really well done, um, book called chaos. Uh, that goes into that, um, about the history of Charles Manson and the CIA and MKUltra. So this isn't new right the idea that this man could have been now what we know we don't know that right He says now we can't say that that's true, which is true You can't say that but what you can say is that this man had mental health issues and that he was obviously being given some sort of antipsychotics or some sort of SSRIs or some some sort of psychiatric treatments to assist with his mental health, right? We don't have a gun problem. We have a mental health problem. We have a, a, a pharmaceutical industrial complex problem that that looks at everyday citizens dealing with everyday types of issues and wants to shove down their throat. These pharmaceutical drugs where everything's a side effect, whether it's an intentional or hopeful side effect or an unintentional off label side effect, right? Every single time that you look at a pharmaceutical medication, literally the way that that works is they throw shit at the wall and see what it does. They come up with all these new compounds. And then they look for whether the reactions if I put these things together and I put it into a human body, what's it going to do, what are the effects going to be? And maybe it has multiple effects. And all of them are side effects. Some are hope that they want them to some are positive side effects, like potentially, I don't know, lowering your risk for suicide, but almost it. In every case, it higher, it heightens your risk for suicide, right? You go watch any pharmaceutical drug advertisement right now. It's like, ask your doctor about Prilosec, which will help you lower your instances of, of GERD, right? Of, of having acid reflux. But also, as it starts to talk really, really fast about all the things that it could help you do and that it's going to do to you and you're going to die and maybe it's going to make you bleed internally and turn your toes inside out and make you start seeing from your nose and hearing from your ears. It's like, it's like all of these side effects that come with it are, it's all side effects. There's no, it's just all they did was look at it and go, Oh, this is a side effect that can make us money. And this is one that we have to mitigate by putting all these legal terms around. Right. So. When you have a man like this that is on probably very serious medications going out from an inpatient facility for mental health issues. There's obviously psychiatric treatment, right? And I believe Candace Owens posted something about this. Um, that was pretty well said, and I'll see if I can pull this up here. Um, which is that another mass shooting that big pharma is going to get away with, right? This isn't Daniel defense's problem, right? This isn't glocks problem. This is a problem with Big Pharma. This is a problem with the pharmaceutical medical and industrial complex. This is a problem with the way that we treat mental illness and that we've set up society, right? She said never a discussion about the anti psychotic medications that these shooters all have in common. So we'll do the usual political song and dance while the American drug cartel billionaires count their billions, right? How many times, right? It's it's whether it was a knife. Or a car, right? Which there's all been mass murders with any type of imaginable weapon that you could you can think of. However, what causes somebody to do those things is not to get to the point where you pull that trigger has absolutely nothing to do with the legality around the weapon type that you use, right? They're going to do what's what's important. What's the, the greatest possibility for the worst outcome for humanity, right? No matter what that is, whether it's running people over with a car, you're going to ban cars. No, whether it's stabbing people like we have mass stabbings over in the UK, right? But, but, you know, what's in common, you know, if you want to look at, I guarantee you where there's a causation. If you want to pull up a chart and look at since the amount of times that we've been allowed to advertise pharmaceutical products, I guarantee you the uptick in mass shootings. You want to know why? There's not the same amount of problems with mass shootings in the UK doesn't have to do with the gun laws or mass murders. It has to do with The laws around pharmaceutical companies, the laws around anti psychotics being peddled to children, the laws about, you know, all of the indoctrinations that we're seeing trying to, to ruin the, the family unit. So yeah, we don't have a gun problem. We have a big pharma problem. We have a medical industrial complex problem. We have a pharmaceuticals problem and that should absolutely be addressed. Right, but what Kamala Harris wants to do is to go the Australia route and get rid of every single access that you have to weapons, as she states here in a recent speech. And here's that. Gun violence has terrorized and traumatized so many of our communities in this country. And let us be clear, it does not have to be this way, as our friends in Australia have demonstrated. And what does she mean by that? What she means by that is the hundreds of thousands of weapons that were mandatorily confiscated in Australia, right? We go and we look at the articles based on this that discuss this. Um, let's see if we can find that here. I had one up about that. Let's see if we can find it. Potentially not, but you get the idea here is like. The problem is not access to weapons because you're always going to have weapon, you're always going to have access to pointy objects. The, guess what? The, the, the people that were conducting mass raids and killings back in, in, you know, the 1700s when we were far more, uh, barbaric than we are today. Did it have gunpowder? They didn't have semi automatic weapons. You know what they had, they had knives and tomahawks and fucking bows and arrows. And they killed far more people atrociously than what we're seeing today. The idea that by suddenly, Making guns illegal and confiscating them door to door, like Australia, right, which was by far the most talent totalitarian state during COVID of any of them that we saw, maybe next to China, which is right there with them on gun bans. Yeah, no, thanks, Kamala. You're absolutely not going to do that. So this comes from Colin rug, which has Kamala Harris references, Australia as a country of the United States should model themselves after when it comes to gun control. Starting in 1996, Australia collected about 650, 000 privately owned guns and a mandatory buyback. They also established a gun registry and. Banned pump action shotguns and semi automatic rifles. Australians can only buy a gun if the government deems it to be a genuine reason, which predominantly means for sport or hunting. The Biden regime is saying the quiet part out loud. Despicable. Now somebody else commented on that that says, We learned from other countries what not to do. The sheer number of reference points available against seizing firearms is staggering. There's about one plausible outcome for that. It's called tyranny. Yeah. Now, it's funny. Yeah, then you go and look at that. Guess who was also just indicted on three different gun charges. Hunter Biden, right? The same people that that are, you know, looking at everyday citizens trying to say that you shouldn't have a weapon are also the same ones who got Hunter Biden out of his gun charges. So let's take that with a grain of salt. Anyways, moving on. Let's hope they find that guy soon. He's a piece of trash. My heart goes out to all of the families that were, are affected by this. That's terrible. 21 people, 18 people, whatever it is. Horrible. Um, and the answer is obviously not taking people's guns away. The answer is figuring out why so many people are, are, are engaging in this. Now obviously not as many people as they would lead you to believe because they want to take those guns away from you. But anyways, here we go. There was a post that came out from the White House. Now, uh, this comes from the, let me, let me preempt this. So, so kind of what, what my thought is here is let's, let's get an update on Israel and Hamas, but let's not do it in the way where I'm telling you exactly what you can go find somewhere else. So what I want to discuss here today is. The way that we're seeing the reactions from the United States, from large conservative influencers through, uh, social media and stuff. So, so let's look at this. This is the White House saying that, you know, to me, the idea that, you know, we have all these conservatives calling for war on behalf of Israel, calling for, for the death of civilians. And there's only, there's literally only one side in the Israel Hamas or Israel versus Palestine debate. On the, in the United States side of things, there's only one side that's calling for the death of civilians and saying it's acceptable, right? Like my position is anti war. My position is anti terrorist in both of, in these cases, there's civilians being killed on both sides. There's mass killings. Palestine came out and said that there's been 7, 200 people that have died as a result of Israel's attacks. Now, the White House is saying that they don't believe that number because, oh, oh, oh, we just, we don't believe anything that comes out from, from the mouth of people that disagrees with our narrative. But again, as I'm saying, there's only one side in the United States, like, and, and, you know, there are very small groups of people and there's some, some horrific videos coming out from universities where they're saying like, Israel, Palestine. Something something Jewish genocide like yeah, horrible. That's terrible. Don't say that. And obviously don't do that. That's atrocious. But what I'm saying is on the mainstream narratives here, when we come to talking and discussing about the people with larger platforms who are saying we're pro Israel, we're pro this, like, you'll listen to this clip by Dennis Prager, where he essentially says that the death of civilians that are caused by Israel is the fault of Palestine. Not the fault of Israel for, I dunno, bombing innocent civilians and children. No, no, no, no. It's the fault of the Palestinians and Hamas. Not our fault for bombing you. It's their fault for starting shit with us, so we had to bomb your children. Like, what kind of response is that? Right? Like, oh, we're justified in doing this because of what you did to us. We get to do whatever we want. No, that's the act of a terrorist. Right? Like, and, and here's literally the White House saying that there's going to be civilian bloodshed and the United States government is okay with that. Even if it's children. Here we go. Watch this shit. Cause this should infuriate you. This is war. It is combat. It is bloody. It is ugly. And it's going to be messy. And innocent civilians are going to be hurt going forward. I wish I could tell you something different. I wish that that wasn't going to happen. Uh, but it is, it is going to happen. And, uh, that doesn't make it right. It doesn't make it, uh, dismissible. It doesn't mean that we aren't going to still express concerns about that and, and do everything we can to help the Israelis do everything they can to minimize it. But, uh, but that's, that's unfortunately the nature of conflict. This is war. It is combat. So essentially what the United States government just said is they are perfectly okay with Israel Conducting attacks on civilians and having collateral damage and you know, we'll look into it a little bit But we don't we know war is messy and they're gonna kill civilians and we're perfectly fine with that and you should be too You know what killing innocent civilians is It's an act of terrorism. So the United States government just condones terrorism when it's on their side of things, right? And again, I don't agree with Hamas conducting act of terrorism either. Terrorism either. They're all horrible and everything that both sides is doing is bad. Right, but only one side it claims to be having the moral high ground here of being a large agreed upon Nation state that is getting funding from our tax dollars So yeah, I wouldn't choose to send money to Hamas either But the United States government literally just looked you in the eye and said that it's okay if Israel kills Civilians cuz guess what? That's war Hmm. Is it? Because to me that sounds like acts of terrorism. And they're not the only one, right? The government is not the only one doing this. You're seeing large conservative influencers, Ben Shapiro and Dennis Prager's out there, saying that, yeah, it's okay. It's okay and it's definitely not the fault of Israel if there is deaths to children. Right in here. Let's watch this clip here and see just exactly what Dennis Prager says because it's just as wild as that statement. Already, because it means confronting evil and people don't want it. Let me start it from the beginning for you here in just a second because yeah, this is absolutely just as crazy. You'll see the same fucking four clips about the conflict. It's like there's the guy getting pulled out the car. There's the girl getting pulled away. There's like two or three. Two or three clips maybe but here we go. Let's let's here it is every Japanese who died in the nuclear bombs Every single one their blood was on the hands of the japanese regime Including the emperor had they not attacked the pearl harbor had they not attacked korea and china? and the philippines And other countries there would never have been one bomb dropped On Japan or on Germany, the West didn't have to be told that German children are as precious as American or British children. German children who died, died because of Hitler and the Nazis, not because of the West. Moral clarity is everything, but people don't want to have moral clarity because it means confronting evil and people don't want to do that. It's too painful or scary. Same here in the Middle East. Now, every, every Palestinian child killed, the blood is on the hands of Hamas and Hezbollah had they not done what they did, there would never be a war. Did you hear that shit? That's so crazy. That's such a wild statement to say that. The, the, the blood of those children in Japan that were incinerated by atomic bombs by the United States is the fault of the Japanese. Like imagine you come get in a fistfight with me and I'll just keep using this because I think it's good. You got to realize, you know, we're at war, right? Whatever. We're, we're in a fight. If I get in a fight with Gaia in a Gaia school. And he punches me in the face, and I get into a fistfight with him, and then all of a sudden, the next day, I go and kill his family. I could point to him and go, Oh, well, you shouldn't start shit. It's like, sure, but maybe don't go kill somebody's family or, or obliterate entire cities with atomic bombs that nobody has ever used sense because of the mass destruction where there's shadows incinerated onto the ground where people used to stand. And you have him sitting here saying, well, don't start shit. Don't won't won't don't start nothing won't be nothing. Like, okay, but also when you're bound by the Geneva Convention and you follow the, the, the Rules of engagement that allow you to become a, a agreed upon nation state by all the other countries, right? Hamas is not in that group. They are actively considered a terrorist group. So yeah, they're not bound by the Geneva Convention. They're not bound by the rules of engagement. There, there, there, there's no rules that they have to abide by because there's no large judicial system. That they have to adhere to the laws of, but Israel does have to do that. And guess what? It was wrong of the United States to drop a bomb because there's also questions around Pearl Harbor. And if we let that happen, right, there was all, there's tons of skepticism about if, whether or not the United States had Intel on Pearl Harbor happening or whether it should have happened to begin with, or who like. And why and when and like, there's a lot of questions around Pearl Harbor. So then to say, well, don't start shit won't be shit. We're going to drop a fucking nuke on you if you kill some of our military personnel. It's like, yes, absolutely kill American military personnel. But if you kill 500 people, does that warrant a response of killing 500, 000 people simultaneously? And majority, 90%, 95%, 100 percent and obviously Pearl Harbor was enacted on a military base. Pearl Harbor was a military base. Hiroshima, Nagasaki were not military cities. You don't just get to go bomb and level entire civilizations because somebody hit your military base. You go hit back on their military bases, right? That's not moral clarity. That's, that's. Like. Moral, uh, confuscation of, of, of, I don't even know what to call it. It's just gross. That's just a such a gross statement. And then you have the United States government parroting that idea. Like, yeah, it's going to be bloody and Israel is going to kill a ton of civilians and children, but yeah, that's war. Like, no, not supposed to be right. And then, and then you have. Them basically trying to propagandize this war from our front and again, beat the war drum to allow us to get in this engagement, which. Whether you want them to or not, we're going to write. You had Joe Biden essentially give a 15 minute Raytheon commercial, right? Who knew that they could last that long? Trying to convince you and I that this is the right thing to do to go to war just two to three days before they get drone striked where nobody gets hurt. And. Like, how easy would that be? Like, you want to talk about false flags. How easy would it be for them to sit a hundred fucking yards away with some remote control somewhere and explode something not even close to civilian or to people who are actually going to die on the military base and then all of a sudden go conduct airstrikes as a response? Like, that's the literally the easiest false flag you've ever heard of in your life. So like... Why should we now believe that we should go drop bombs if not a single family can point to one of their family members dying as a result of these drone strikes? Excuse me. But now we're immediately justified in entering this engagement. in the Middle East. Terrifying. Right? Terrifying. And you saw Ben Shapiro puppeting the same exact narrative that like, oh, it's okay to kill innocent civilians as long as they're not the people that I support. Right? You're a terrorist organization. If you do that to my people or people that are on my side, but if we do that to you back, that's called moral clarity. Like No, it's not. Alright, let's see if we can move on here. Um, there is, oh, and by the way, let's go back to that statement of like, and we're not going to let them get away with trying to deny this. It's like, oh, so you're just not even going to the negotiations come to the table and saying, hey, did you bomb us? And they go, no, we absolutely did not do that. Oh, okay. Well, we're going to bomb your people anyways. Like, we're absolutely not going to let them get away with denying it. Like. Okay, show us your evidence. Like, why do we believe that that was from these people? How do we know? Right? How do we know any of this? Like if there's 21 people who had minor scuffs, and one guy who died from his COVID vaccine, like why should we as the Americans be immediately calling for a military engagement? It just doesn't add up to me. Especially when you see this level of propaganda, right? Like To me, it's like if everybody in the news media, everybody that's a celebrity, everybody that's, that's even Joe Biden or the military industrial complex, all of them are all all singing the same tune as you. calling for support to Israel, maybe you should start questioning your position. If you're finding yourself on the side of the military industrial complex, Joe Biden and CNN, I'm just saying, maybe look into it a little bit further right now. I'm not the end all be all narrative on this. My point is that. Everybody's wrong. There's no reason that we should be going into this military conflict. There's no reason we should be funding Israel. There's no reason we should be funding Ukraine. There's no reason that we should be finding ourselves in these proxy wars, which is eventually going to lead to us because it's not a proxy war eventually, right? That's what you're going to find. Because when, when Iran funds a military organization that bombs, or does a drone strike against the United States, all the sudden it's it's calls for war against Iran. But when we fund Ukraine, and Ukraine goes and bombs and kills Russia, it has absolutely nothing to do with the United States. It's like you can't How do you justify that position? And I, there's like really interesting clarity of statement. They're talking about clarity, like you, as the United States, you cannot tell me that there is any difference between Iran funding a military militia that ends up drone striking the United States. That's not any different than the United States funding Ukraine to go bomb Russia. Right? Same thing, same exact situation, yet you hold the moral high ground and call for the bloodshed of innocent civilians against, against Palestine, or you immediately get to bomb somebody back as a result, like, and then wag your finger at Iran. Saying you better not do anything back to us or we'll absolutely retaliate like it's the hypocrisy is just astounding All right, guys. Thank you so much for listening.
