Guns and Drills and Children, Oh My!
Are we living in a Truman Show?
The most recent mass casualty shooting, in Uvalde, Texas, raises the same troubling questions that pretty much every one of these events has since at least the Gabby Giffords case. I need to qualify everything I write here; I am not claiming no one died here, or in any of these incidents. I don’t know anything for certain.
But as I wrote in an article on my blog years ago (you can access my extensive archives of articles at https://donaldjeffries.wordpress.com/), it isn’t irresponsible to question Sandy Hook, or any other widely reported news story. I’ve pointed out to my fellow JFK assassination researchers that the Kennedy family could theoretically adopt the stance we’ve seen in the Sandy Hook case, and sue researchers for “harassing” them by questioning the circumstances of Kennedy’s death. Isn’t it basically the same perspective? Aren’t we “traumatizing” them by saying it was a conspiracy?
As of last report (and the numbers have grown), 19 children and 2 adults have died as a result of a mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. The gunman was identified as eighteen year old Salvador Ramos. Despite some glaring examples of mainstream news attempting to “lighten” his photographic image, Ramos cannot be identified as White. Early reports claimed he was transgender, too. I knew that wasn’t going to fly, and lo and behold, before long that was found to be “disinformation.” Ramos was just a kid with a gun. It wasn’t mental illness. It wasn’t Ritalin or Adderall. The gun made him do it.
As we find in all these narratives, early news reports completely contradict the later, official findings. In one story, we learned that “Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin told Fox News that one person has been shot and the shooter who ran to the school became barricaded inside it. The school later said ‘Robb Elementary students are being transported to the Willie DeLeon Civic Center for reunification.’ The Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District first reported a lockdown at Robb Elementary at 11:43 a.m. local time. The students and staff are safe in the buildings," the district had said in a message to parents.”
Now, this report raises some interesting points. Again, it’s not irresponsible to question. How do you make a “mistake” like that- saying “the students and staff are safe,” when so many had been shot? Kind of like the two Dallas Police officers who found a weapon on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository after JFK had been shot, both “mistakenly” identifying it as the same “wrong” weapon. And there are multiple reports that the school had been locked down prior to the shooting. Isn’t it the most natural thing in the world to ask just how a shooter entered a building under lockdown? If he was able to do that, exactly what purpose do these lockdowns serve?
Other reports claim that Ramos was confronted by an armed security guard and or police officer. And that didn’t stop him? Stories persist that Ramos was also being chased by border patrol officers. Huh? If any of that is remotely true, including the school being locked down, then how can anyone possibly believe this teenager could waltz into the building and slaughter all those people? As I described in my book Bullyocracy, schools have become like fortresses in recent years. It’s not easy for a parent to enter a school now. So why was it easy for this kid, openly armed, to enter a facility where all the doors were locked, according to other reports?
Considering how many of these shootings have happened just since Sandy Hook in 2012, shouldn’t security have been beefed up each time? Aren’t officials, especially those cops and security officers in every school, constantly alert for a potential shooter? Do you hear anyone asking these questions? Instead, it’s a resounding chorus of “do something!” That “something” is, of course, more gun control. The object here is the villain, not the perpetrator. Especially in this case, when his last name is Ramos, transgender or not.
I haven’t seen many interviews with witnesses. The witnesses are often focused on by those dissecting these events online. Of course, almost all speculation and real investigative work has been banned from You Tube and other other social media platforms. But this one interview is pretty perplexing. View it for yourself here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQIHmfBJFsU As you can see, the parents don’t seem sure of what grade their daughter is in. “We don’t know the grade?” Is that believable? Have you ever met a parent who didn’t know what grade their children were in? And why would any parent have to be “searching” for their child at this point? “They don’t know where she’s at?” How were school officials not keeping them updated?
I become more depressed whenever I look deeper into any of these events. The same elements are always there. How about David Hogg at the Parkland event, claiming he interviewed two other students in a coat closet during the shooting? The subject? Gun control, of course. Not the live shooting event which could have claimed them as victims. Or the young girl who cheerfully talked about walking next to the shooter, after he’d shot the place up, and calmly told him that he must have done it. Probably was him carrying the weapon that gave her that clue. That interview was quickly scrubbed, as so many others have been in similar incidents. Watch the one I linked above while you can. It will unquestionably be memory holed as well.
There was Monsignor Robert Weiss after Sandy Hook, who was caught on tape in an interview very audibly laughing when discussing those children dying. That one was scrubbed, but thanks to the efforts of researcher Chris Graves, I was able to listen to it again. Yep, he’s laughing. Or the two guys carrying a victim out of the gay nightclub in Florida. An extended version of the video shows them letting the victim down, and then they all three engage in what looks like a celebratory dance.
I will be covering some of the most high profile events, like Sandy Hook, Gabby Giffords, the Batman Aurora shooting, and the Boston Bombing, in what will now be Hidden History 4. Hidden History 3: More From the American Memory Hole became too full, so I moved some material over to what will become the next installment in what has become a Hidden History series. I fear lawsuits as much as anyone, so I want to make it clear again that I am not making any definitive claims. I can only go by what is reported, and those reporting these events are the same ones who lie about everything else. Unless you turn off your critical thinking skills, there are disturbing questions that are raised in just about all of these cases. How can one not question all the inconsistencies?
If you’ve read my book Bullyocracy: How the Social Hierarchy Enables Bullies to Rule Schools, Workplaces, and Society at Large, you know all about the live shooter drills which are a confoundingly regular part of school curriculums across this country. This is not a “conspiracy theory.” It isn’t “harassing” any families. It is openly acknowledged by the same mainstream media that demonizes those who question any aspect of these events as heartless ghouls. These drills are scripted, with shooters always fitting a politically correct image. Demented home schooler. Crazed gun nut. Never a wild and crazy climate change activist.
These drills hire crisis actors to play the leading roles. Again, not a theory. It is a fact admitted by all. And they use fake blood. Fake victims. The police and EMT personnel often participate. Guess no real emergencies were taking place at the time. Our tax dollars at work. The children subjected to these drills are never notified of them. They think there is a real shooter at large, who could conceivably kill them. If instilling such terror in youngsters isn’t child abuse, then what is? So, is it really much of a step to think that maybe, just maybe, some of the allegedly real events might be scripted, too? The ones with all the dubious elements to them? Going back to 9/11 at least, there is always some kind of drill going on in close proximity, and at the same time, during these incidents. Even the COVID narrative had advance drills.
If these shootings happen as reported, then my heart goes out to all the victims. Nothing is more tragic than losing a child. But in that case, why are the schools themselves never scrutinized? These events, like the systemic bullying I detailed in my book, happen at facilities that taxpayers finance. Shouldn’t they have a right to expect that their kids will not be shot during the school day? Especially with police and what we’re told is massively increased security on the premises? What about those surveillance cameras that are in every school? Is it not a legitimate question to ask why they never work during these events?
The reaction to these events is always the same. Always. The entire establishment, except for a small group of conservatives, wrings their collective hands over the easy availability of guns. Identity politics, in all its emotion without reason, is never more visible than in response to these incidents. You have the more deranged “Woke” forces, like Michael Moore, outright calling for a ban of the Second Amendment. You know he wants to get rid of the First Amendment, too. The statements issued by celebrities in reaction would be laughable if they weren’t tragic. These vacuous and agenda-driven One Percenters are the ones with the large public platforms. People like me have to counter on Substack and on podcasts. It’s not a level playing field.
We are told that Ramos crashed his truck into a ditch before the shooting. Not sure how that fits into him being chased by border patrol agents. Was that why he crashed the truck? If so, how could border patrol agents not stop him from continuing on into the school (where we are told the doors were all locked?) Ramos was, like most of these shooters, shot and killed at the scene. By the same border patrol that couldn’t prevent him from entering the school dressed in body armor and wielding a weapon.
Just asking these questions somehow disrespects the children and their families. Of course, we see the same thing in political crimes. Seth Rich’s family will sue anyone who investigates who killed their loved one. Does that make any sense? They don’t want to know the circumstances? How many times have we heard about closure, and seen family members weeping in exultation after someone was convicted of killing their loved one? Why doesn’t that apply in these cases?
The New York Times has already gone to the lengths of debunking “3 viral rumors” about the Uvalde shooting. The Houston Chronicle trumpeted, “No, it wasn’t a false flag. Here’s why.” There were other cries of “fake news” in our state controlled media. Are they protesting too much? On the other hand, alternative media quoted a reader whose son recently went to Texas schools. This parent wrote, “ALL schools in our area had been retrofitted (and new schools designed with) buzz- in systems, where you could not walk into the school without being buzzed in by the front office. Parents would literally have to give their name, the name of their student, and the reason for their visit. You would sit outside and wait a couple minutes while the administration and staff verified that your student was a real student at the school.” Hmm.
This parent went on to say, “Once inside, the only place accessible to any visitor was the front office. There was bulletproof glass and / or heavy locked doors leading to all other areas of the school, and this was at multiple schools throughout the years that my son attended. All schools were designed this way! It was done intentionally to stop mass shootings. There is no way that in 2022 the shooter had access to a classroom.” And keep in mind, Ramos was supposedly being chased by Border Patrol agents. His alleged actions put the magic of Lee Harvey Oswald to shame.
I know my anger in such a nightmarish situation would be directed at those running the school. Weren’t the doors locked? Wasn’t there a police officer, or at least security guards, present? Don’t parents have to be buzzed in? Do school shooters bypass the buzz-in requirement? Why weren’t the security cameras working? You know, so we can shut up those dastardly “conspiracy theorists” by showing them exactly how it happened? And I’d really be irate at the Border Patrol in this case. You chased him into the school, when he was brandishing a weapon? You didn’t shoot at him until after he’d shot all those people?
There were early reports that a person with a gun had been shot in the parking lot. If he was really being chased by Border Patrol agents, and was wielding a weapon, this is what probably would have happened. We are told that the parents had to go to a civic center, where they waited for several hours, and DNA samples were taken from them, “used to confirm whether or not their child had died in the shooting,” according to one news account. What? DNA samples? Where are the Social Justice Warriors to claim this is some kind of racism? I’ve never heard of that kind of thing before. The school was all, or at least overwhelmingly Hispanic. Does that make any sense? Some parents were forced to wait from 3 pm until nearly midnight, to find out what happened to their children.
Okay, that is really incomprehensible to me. If we thought routing the Sandy Hook kids to the local fire station was a bit odd, what should we think of this? Those children who weren’t shot should have immediately been in the arms of their worried parents. And the families of the victims shouldn’t have had to compound their grief with this kind of senseless, sadistic procedure. If this was a real event, every official involved in thinking this up should be immediately dismissed from their position.
The narrative continues to “evolve,” as they invariably do in these cases. New articles state that “Authorities are examining the police response.” One story reported, “Officials say they can no longer confirm initial reports that officers engaged the suspected gunman immediately upon his arrival at the Uvalde, Texas school.” Oh, okay. So all the early reports were wrong, as they always are in these incidents. And the police are basically off the hook, which is always the case. School security, from the strangely inoperative security cameras to the “new normal” strict security measures being somehow circumvented, to the failure of any officers on site to stop the suspect, is never focused on. It’s just the guns. And finding at least one teacher to make into a hero. Teachers are always heroic in our state controlled media.
The late Norm MacDonald was just about the only public figure to question this image of teachers as heroes. Certainly, the conduct of most of them during the unconstitutional lockdown, and now the depraved videos on Tic Toc and Instagram, advertising their mental instability, don’t exactly add up to heroism. I’m convinced one of the reasons why Bullyocracy hasn’t garnered more publicity is because of all the horrible teachers it exposes, that enabled bullying, and sometimes were captured on tape being bullies themselves.
With the increased security measures at all schools, and the presence of police officers in most of them, bullying should have been eradicated. There should never be any questions about bullying complaints. Just roll the videotape from all those cameras. But they never seem to do that, to identify the bullies. And on a more important level, the bolstered security has done nothing to stop these shootings. So what is the point of the security? Why make parents go through inconveniences to visit their child’s class or have lunch with them? How come the school shooters don’t have to put up with these inconveniences?
If we had investigative journalism in this country, outside of blogs and podcasts by those with limited audiences, they would be asking these questions. And the officials would be outed for the corrupt stooges they are. Whether all or some of the shootings are real, staged drills, or something else entirely, no one involved is ever held accountable. As Thomas Pynchon once wrote, they don’t have to worry about the answers, if they get you to ask the wrong questions. Those who have the power to ask the questions are asking the wrong ones. I’m not being disrespectful or irresponsible by saying it. To the extent I can, I’m trying to make this a better society.
