Rush to Judgment on Orlando Murders Ignores Trust Issues with Official Accounts

FBI Director Comey tells media what he wants them to repeat about Orlando nightclub killings. (FBI News Blog)

“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.

  1. My fundamental question is….what has happened to investigative journalism? These days speed over accuracy seems to be the norm. Therefor damn the torpedoes and full speed ahead! Why is it that only the alternate media is to bring out the truth? Well for one thing the corporate machine breathing down your neck with the words go go go, money money money. This leads into the situation of it must be true because this is what I am being told and I don’t have the time to figure it out…..next! The same thing is true with the public viewing the media, I don’t have the time, this is what they are telling me it must be true. People seem to always have the time to view the latest over priced trendy phones, computers, cars and alike, why not set aside time to search for the truth? It will outlast any trendy devices and will help you maintain your fundamental rights as a person. True investigative journalism seems to come from the person or persons that dare to be different. Regardless of your occupation you are an investigative journalist just experiencing life itself. The choice is yours to seek the truth or move on and let someone else worry about it. As you seek the truth don’t be afraid to demand it as well. Demand the truth from the media, the government, your employer, and life.

    David Codrea and others like you,

    This Buds for you!

  2. “My fundamental question is….what has happened to investigative journalism?”

    There are still real investigative journalists out there, they are just not owned and operated by the corporate owned media. They are considered “alternative media”. but is that really true today when the ONLY real media, the only real investigations are done by a few who are outside of the “mainstream” wholly owned “media”? Isn’t it true now that the “mainstream” media, since they are handed a script, told what to say, what to avoid, what to “imply”, and what not to say ever is actually now just entertainment since nothing they say can be believed?

    I feel it is so, but that is a question one can only answer for themselves.

    God Bless and Stay Safe Everyone!

    If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?

    Chief Tecumseh: “When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

  3. THEY will kill many more to achieve their gun grabbing agenda and mainstream media will continue to cover-up THEIR murders.

    All WE have to do is catch THEM once in the act and then it’s a different paradigm of the dangerous kind.

    Soon enough….law enforcement / CIA / DHS whistleblowers will surface like nuclear subs.

  4. Anyone See This Covered By The Marxist State Media (MSM) Or Comments By Obozo?

    Concealed Carrier Prevents Mass Shooting At SC Nightclub
    June 29, 2016 By Bre Payton

    A man with a concealed carry license stopped a shooter after the latter opened fire on a crowd of people at a nightclub in South Carolina early Sunday morning, according to WISTV.com.

    After getting into a fight with another person, the 32-year-old suspect pulled out a gun and began to fire at a crowd of people gathered outside of the club, hitting and injuring four, WISTV reports. One of the victims, who holds a concealed-carry permit, shot back in self-defense, hitting the suspect in the leg.

    The suspect has been charged with four counts of attempted murder. He was also charged for unlawfully carrying a weapon and for carrying one while committing a violent crime.

    The concealed carrier who shot back won’t be facing any charges, as his permit to carry was valid.
