Mark Armstrong’s Weekly News Commentary – 23 February 2018

Greetings from Tyler,

As if following the time-honored leftist play book to the letter, the mainstream media wasn’t about to let the Broward County school shooting tragedy go to waste.  CNN raced to the scene to schedule their televised “town hall” meeting to be carried LIVE, nation wide.  We’re beginning to find out that they only wanted one viewpoint pushed, and rejected participation by most everyone who had any reaction other than an emotional demand for gun control.  That was most clearly demonstrated by the Broward County Sheriff, and his impassioned call for “trying something different.”  That dude needs to be shown the door.

The theory behind gun control, is that the police can protect citizens from harm.  The government, if large enough and powerful enough, can take care of the bad guys.  All you have to do is contact authorities, and they’ll swarm into action.  You don’t need to protect yourself, they claim.  More guns  means more violence.

The Florida example may be the worst of all time in terms of backing up the angry screams for gun confiscation.  Anger is understandable and to be expected from the grieving parents, family members and friends of those defenseless teenagers, mercilessly murdered and maimed by the homicidal maniac who shot up the school.  But those charged with Law enforcement dropped the ball, not once, not twice, but every single time!  The F. B. I. was notified and warned twice, the second time with detailed information on the identity and location of the gunman, weeks in advance of the killings.  But they did nothing.

County Sheriffs responded to numerous calls, some saying the little monster had not only threatened, but pointed his guns at people while threatening to shoot them.  Time and time again they went to answer complaints, but never took the future mass murderer into custody, never hauled him off for a mental examination, and never charged him with a crime or took his guns into custody.

The latest shoe to drop, is the school’s own security officer, a Sheriff, hid outside (for a full four minutes) while the massacre proceeded inside the school.  Now they’ve got  him and his home under armed guard, afraid that some infuriated parent of a murdered or maimed child might take matters into their own hands after learning of his incredible act of cowardice.  Or was he told to stand down?  He was seen on his radio, so that’s now up for speculation.

Conspiracy theories are sprouting like spring weeds.  The F. B. I. was told this might well happen and who might do it, and never bothered to act.  The local enforcement officers had dozens of complaints of violence and threats against others, and did nothing.  Now they’re all calling for law abiding citizens to be required to turn in their firearms, as if it’s the fault of the law abiding public that this happened.  “It’s the NRA’s fault!”  Don’t worry.  You don’t need to protect yourselves, the police are all the protection you need, they claim.

If this is how national and local law enforcement protects people, they don’t deserve much faith.  It would be like relying on the mainstream media for truth!  The mainstream has been lying through its teeth for so long that a vast percentage of the population no longer trusts “The Most Trusted Name in News” or any of the rest of them.  We suspect there have been several instances where crimes have been committed by, or with the acquiescence of government in order to bring about a political result.  Anybody remember Fast and Furious?  Attorney Eric Holder decided he’d rather be the first Attorney General in American history to be slapped with the charge of Contempt of Congress than expose his, and undoubtedly the former president’s role in running hundreds of legal guns to Mexican drug cartels.  That, apparently was part of a longer term plan to convince the American public that legally bought and sold firearms were causing murder, mayhem and contributing to drug importation.  Therefore, the government would have a responsibility to crack down on the legal purchase of firearms.  Needless to say, it didn’t go according to plan.

We suspect the dog has been wagged on many an occasion.  Bill Clinton is suspected as having been a master of the craft.  When the subject absolutely positively had to be changed, a catastrophe happens and grabs all the attention for days or weeks.  This school massacre had better not turn out to be one of those situations.  But there are a lot of burning questions, and all the media wants to talk about is  gun control.

We live amid a whirlwind of scams, false promises, false accusations, fake news, and unabashed mainstream deception.  They’re everywhere.  How many times a day does your phone ring with some recording, or foreign operator lying to you about your interest in their plan?  How many false claims appear in the column beside every web page?  How much nonsense have mainstream outlets pumped out?

Deception is being used to manipulate people, whether for gain or for the success of some movement or other.  Apparently, it works.  People make fortunes.  Causes have been stoked, riots started, cities burned and looted.  We’ve seen it, and we’ve seen the mainstream media in active participation.  May God help us to not react emotionally or immediately to every whiff of “information.”  We should have learned by now, that the goal is control of the population and the achievement of ends, whatever means are required.  There are more lessons to be learned, and more scams to avoid.  Thank God we still have some Liberties that allow us freedom of movement, freedom of association and freedom of thought.  Most of the world doesn’t.
