Orlando Shootings: Terrorism or False Flag?

It’s too soon to know whether Sunday’s Orlando incident was terrorism or false flag deception.
Yet it has distinct earmarks of the latter, likely the latest example of domestic state terror, another fear-mongering pretext for out-of-control militarism, endless wars of choice, and domestic repression, America more a police state than free society on a slippery slope toward full-blown tyranny.
Muslims are Washington’s target of choice, falsely blamed for numerous state-sponsored domestic crimes – 9/11 the mother of all false flags.
Convincing evidence indicates the alleged Boston bombers, San Bernardino bombers, Sandy Hook shooter, a shoe bomber, an underwear bomber, Times Square bomber, shampoo bombers, synagogue bombers, and numerous other convenient patsies blamed for similar incidents were victims of elaborate hoaxes, state-sponsored false flag deception.
Pre-dawn Sunday, alleged heavily armed gunman Omar Mateen managed to kill or wound over 100 individuals at Orlando’s Pulse LGBT nightclub before city SWAT police killed him.
Dead men tell no tales. All we know is what authorities say and media scoundrels repeat without due diligence checking.
According to official reports, Mateen called 911, declaring his allegiance to ISIS. Following the shootings, the group allegedly claimed responsibility, saying they were “carried out by an Islamic State fighter.”
America created and supports the group. Why would any of its members or supporters want its benefactor harmed?
Sunday’s incident represents the largest domestic mass-casualty event since 9/11. An obvious unanswered question is how could an alleged lone gunman manage to kill or injure so many before SWAT police stopped him?
Were multiple gunmen involved? Mass shootings on this scale seem unlikely for anyone to be able to pull off single-handedly. Was state-sponsored terrorism responsible?
As expected, Obama politicized the incident, calling it “an act of terror and an act of hate” – vowing “to protect our people and defend our nation, (acting) against those who threaten us.”
Hillary Clinton revealed her rage for endless wars, abhorrence of rule of law principles, and antipathy to fundamental freedoms – urging “redouble(d) efforts to defend our country from threats at home and abroad.”
She failed to explain America faces invented ones only, pretexts for waging war on humanity.
The groundwork is being laid for continuing wars of aggression, launching new ones, and eliminating what remains of constitutional rights.
People are being manipulated to believe the price of security requires sacrificing fundamental freedoms – failing to realize they’re losing both.

Extensive media coverage of June 12 Orlando shootings hyped Islamic terrorism, suppressing what most needs explaining.
One-sided reporting regurgitated official accounts without due diligence checking, the public left in the dark, uninformed.
The New York Times said (alleged) gunman Omar Mateen “proclaim(ed) allegiance to the Islamic State terrorist group…”
Shootings began around 2:00AM. The Times hyped fear, reporting “a panicked scene of unimaginable slaughter, the floors slicked with blood, the dead and injured piled atop one another – (t)errified people pour(ing) onto the darkened streets of the surrounding neighborhood…”
It featured Obama’s politicized comments instead of demanding he be held responsible for state-sponsored terrorism throughout his tenure, harming millions at home and abroad.
It quoted Trump urging “toughness & vigilance…on radical Islamic terrorism.”
It highlighted Clinton’s rage for war and defiance of rule of law principles, advocating “redouble(d)” efforts against “international terror groups,” and “hardened” domestic action.
Neocon Washington Post editors called Orlando shootings “Islamist-fueled terrorism,” suggesting no one is safe anywhere in America from the threat, urging it “be fought and contained wherever it appears.”
WaPo and other major media reports failed to explain consistent US state-sponsorship for these type incidents, convenient patsies blamed for false flag crimes.
Wall Street Journal editors headlined “Jihad in Orlando,” saying ISIS struck America, a domestic Muslim adherent “responsible for the largest mass shooting in US history.”
“(J)ihadist(s) pose an urgent and deadly threat…” Alleged homeland ones are hyped to stoke fear, manipulating public opinion to accept a permanent state of war and loss of fundamental freedoms.
Journal editors urged the FBI to use “sting” operations against Americans allegedly “show(ing) jihadist leanings on social media or with friends” – often resulting in entrapment, a flagrant breach of constitutional rights.
These operations involve government officials or agents initiating a scheme, persuading targeted patsies to consider going along – even though they showed no previous intent or willingness to do so.
Brennan Center for Justice fellow Michael German calls these type activities “manufactured terrorism,” US prisons filled with their victims.
Journal editors urged escalated war on terror – instead of denouncing the ongoing one as a colossal hoax.
We’re doomed if ordinary Americans don’t awaken to the unprecedented threat they face – from neocons waging war on humanity, not jihadists they created and support.
