Rush to Judgment on Orlando Murders Ignores Trust Issues with Official Accounts
“These are in two parts, there’s an actual transcript, and then there’s a summary of the rest,” Judge Andrew Napolitano said on Fox News. “Here’s what’s news in the summary, nobody died until 05:13 in the morning, when the SWAT team entered, prior to that no one had been killed. The 53 that were injured, and the 49 that were murdered all met their fates at the time of, and during, the police entry into the building.”
The clip is presented as part of a wider investigation by TruNews, which asks:
Why has the FBI issued gag orders to local police, fire, and emergency medical personnel? Why has the 911 audio and emergency scanner archives between the hours of 12:00 AM and 0300 AM EST been erased or physically requisitioned by the FBI?
For their part, authorities are disavowing deaths from “friendly fire,” and the mainstream media appears to once more be leaving the tough questions and investigations to independent media and bloggers, who enjoy neither inside contacts nor vast resources.
In many ways, this is reminiscent of the Twin Peaks biker shootings in Waco. Has anyone seen complete ballistics report yet, even though ATF pledged that work would be given priority over other cases? The last update I can find is from January, which states the “earliest possible date of completion and availability will be March 2016.”
That makes it more than fair to ask if the fact that “Four of the nine people killed in a melee between rival biker gangs outside a Twin Peaks restaurant were struck by the same caliber of rifle fired by Waco police” has anything to do with what is starting to look like foot-dragging.
We see this time and again, as those trying to square what we can see on the Lavoy Finicum shooting video with what the enforcers claim and with reports of evidence tampering. Add to that the report that an FBI misconduct case is now before a grand jury, and it’s not unreasonable to ask why anyone should believe a word the government – or the entity usurping that title – says.
Two other stories I personally have done much work on demonstrate additional criminality: The Dobyns lawsuit, where a federal judge accused DOJ and ATF lawyers of committing “fraud on the court,” and, of course, Fast and Furious “gunwalking.”
The lapdog “progressive” media then runs interference for such criminal enterprises, inventing misleading disinformation terms like “botched gun sting,” and then employing Alinsky Rule 5 ridicule to dismiss any other narrative as a laughable “conspiracy theory.”
It’s fair to wonder if some are counting on all the lies and stonewalling and obfuscation to result in just that outcome, so that anyone questioning the official line can be dismissed as the ravings of an outlandish kook, with the real wrongdoing buried and its perpetrators skating free.
The fact is, we don’t know exactly what happened in the Pulse nightclub. For now, we can question why, especially after the lessons of Columbine, the rescuers waited so long, but we don’t know if that would have made things better or worse. We don’t know if the rescue raid could have been handled differently to where fewer people would have died and been wounded. Armchair quarterbacking and second-guessing on such limited information may be easy, and it may even be natural, but that doesn’t make it right.
That said, all of us have an absolute right to know exactly what happened, and to know that the truth will be made available for objective examination, and if appropriate, for further action, pro or con, with full due process if the latter. That’s what’s being denied gun owners in the rush by the blood dancers to ignore all of the other factors (a Taliban father, subversive immigration/invasion policies, radical Islam, a reportedly gay, and a Hillary-supporting killer whose terror warning signs were investigated and ignored) to put us on watchlists and hatelists, and, of course, to ban more guns.
