title and foreword by Wolf Moon
I have often harped on the idea that the left – and enemies of truth in general – have managed to sneak a considerable amount by us, by using a very generalized kind of disinformation. Rather than corrupting our DATA – our facts – they have actually managed to corrupt our THINKING – our processing of the data. This is a far more powerful and insidious way of dominating us.
Small facts can be hidden by small lies. Huge conspiracies can be hidden by small changes to our thinking.
One of the chief ways this has been done, is by subconsciously promoting the simplistic approach of “either-or” thinking – namely XOR (“exclusive OR”) logic. There is a HUGE difference between XOR and OR, because OR logic includes the case or cases where two or more options are simultaneously true – namely AND logic.
XOR thinking is promoted by many means which appear to have nothing at all to do with it. For example, by simply lowering the quality of discourse from calm inquiry to heated argument, XOR thinking is advanced, and more nuanced AND logic is thrown out the window. Thus, TROLLING is a very effective way to advance XOR logic as a means to HIDE TRUTH.
When I talk about the promotion of XOR logic, I’m frequently talking about non-interacting alternatives, where one idea is HIDDEN from investigation, by simply advancing shinier and easier-to-believe alternatives. This works nicely with Eckert’s Law (regarding the thwarting of Occam’s razor by deception), because DECEPTION allows us to construct unbelievable alternatives as realities, and then protect them from scrutiny by means such as simpler and more plausible chaff alternatives. MILITARY CAMOUFLAGE and INSECT MIMICRY both work on this principle. These are both the work of INTELLIGENCE – in one case neural individual intelligence, in the other case distributed evolutionary intelligence.
Now – here is an interesting thought which Gail Combs had – something which not only breaks down such forms of deception, but helps us to see the bigger picture.
What if AND logic doesn’t just bring a hidden alternative back into play for some cases, but actually explains the TOTALITY of facts BETTER than either explanation alone? What if there is EXPLANATORY SYNERGY? In essence, we are recovering a LARGER AND BETTER ruling by Occam’s razor from not just a more LIMITED ruling, but a more MISTAKEN one.
This is something we should add to our logic arsenal. TWO explanations , or a single larger one, may not simply explain MORE cases. Two explanations, or a single larger one, may actually explain all individual cases BETTER.
When we find such a condition, we need to ADVANCE THE BETTER, LARGER EXPLANATION. And we need to fight back against oversimplifying opposition, like the fake news media, which demands compactness and simplicity NOT when it suits the discovery of larger and greater truth, but rather when it suits their agenda of deception.
NOW – on to the specific case under discussion.
What Gail is presenting here is not merely a perfect example of “finding a better, larger, combined explanation”. This is much bigger.
This thinking actually offers the first really good explanation of what I would call the COMPLETE PICTURE of Eric Holder’s greatest wish:
“a way to brainwash people against guns”.
This post explains how numerous curious Democrat strategies are actually connected by a single larger purpose which explains them all. To be really, really blunt about it:
“a way to MK people against guns”.
What we have RIGHT HERE is one of the GRANDEST uses of MK in history – at all levels from targeted individual to mass global. We can now EXPLAIN many Democrat actions which seemed to lack any coherent purpose.
Oh, no. These actions had a purpose. And when we have elucidated the complete, monstrous, THEORY and EXPLANATION of the entire operation, Eric Holder needs to be confronted with every single facet in a court of law, so we can know the TRUTH.Wolf Moon
PART ONE: Introduction
I am going to start with the information from Wolfmoon that triggered my new thoughts and expanded my thinking to “AND LOGIC.“ . The following quotes are from his Déjà Woo and The Unbelievable Convenience of Amnesia articles plus his comments within those articles.
As Wolfmoon says: “This is a perfect place to practice AND LOGIC.“ I have always thought of it as multidimensional thinking instead of linear thinking.
An example of AND LOGIC. is:
Smoking [PLUS] Asbestos = Lung Cancer.
It takes BOTH to get a high incidence of lung cancer but the activists, lawyers and MSM ignored the actual evidence and blamed only Asbestos.
Most people look for the simple logic of If = Then. They do not consider the more complicated If #1 [PLUS] #2 [PLUS] #3 = Then. or as Wolfmoon put it “AND LOGIC.”
The FIRST BIG CLUE from Wolfmoon:
“People will also start looking for MK where it is actually most common and most useful – where it MAKES MONEY and GRABS POWER for DEMOCRATS.”
A great example of this is the Global Warming Scam. HUGE amounts of tax payer $$$ have been diverted into the pockets of select individuals. For example:
“Nancy Pelosi’s brother-in-law is given $737m of taxpayers’ money to build giant solar power plant in middle of the desert. Obama administration approved $1 billion in green energy loans days after failed Solyndra project due to be completed. Energy Department is ‘rushing’ $5bn in loans ahead of Friday deadline.” link
The SECOND BIG CLUE from Wolfmoon:
“….PTSD, anybody? Think about it. AUTOMATIC COVER. And not just that. Supposedly these [MK] techniques work better in the AFTERMATH of traumatic events….”
Would these techniques work even better on a person who has been given BRAIN ALTERING drugs since they entered grade school? Would the power hungry do that to millions of American children in their quest for more and more power?
The THIRD BIG CLUE from Wolfmoon:
This is the real KEY:
“….People cannot even comprehend this idea of making people do something highly non-sensical and possibly even self-destructive…. They have been programmed by Fake Entertainment to reject this stuff as entirely fictional, or sufficiently fictional that it is no more than a parlor trick.
Nobody will tell them about the mathematics of low wins on high purses – the idea that if 9 out of 10 low-level money-maker MK ops fail, but one wins, it EASILY pays for the failures. Americans have been conditioned to believe that only highly reliable techniques are ever deployed. People fail to understand that failure is an accepted part of statistical wins.
My prejudices about what is possible in mind control are why for YEARS I never picked up on a person who did something highly nonsensical that resulted in the goals of CA3 [Conspiracy to Advance Affirmative Action] being fulfilled….
…Spycraft, mission enhancement, obfuscation and disinformation are part of it. Accident creation, crime enabling, and violence are the rest….
Are you starting to see why “MK” and “crazy” go together? Think like a CRIMINAL to see how it’s used. Think like a HACKER who does not want to get caught. Understand WHY discreditation is used to PROTECT technology…”
Wolfmoon was looking at a Conspiracy to Advance Affirmative Action. I am looking at the big one, The Conspiracy to Advance a Complete Gun Ban.
PART TWO: Power grab
The FIRST BIG CLUE from Wolfmoon:
“GRABS POWER for DEMOCRATS.”
What is the BIGGEST stumbling block keeping the Communists, masquerading as Democrats, from grabing complete control of the USA and thus the world? Our Second Amendment rights to own weapons!
Our founding fathers knew exactly how important an armed citizenry was to the preservation of freedom.
Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence.George Washington
History teaches us gun control is the first step of the totalitarian dictator. Murder of defiant subjects is the second:
- 1911 Turkey Gun control — from 1915 to 1917 – 1.5 million Arminans killed
- 1935 China gun control — from 1948 to 1952 – 20 million killed
- 1938 Germany Gun control — from 1935 to 1945 – 20,946,000 murdered.
- 1956 Cambodia gun control — from 1975 to 1977 – 1 to 2 million educated people murdered.
- 1964 Guatamala Gun Control — from 1964 to 1981 – 100,000 Mayan Indians killed.
- 1970 Uganda gun control in — from 1971 to 1979 – 300,000 Christians killed, a total of 2 to 3 million murdered.
PART THREE: Change the Conversation and hide the evidence.
Americans are NOT about to give up their guns. This is especially true of Conservatives, who understand our Second Amendment rights are about preserving our freedom and our Constitution. They understand gun rights are NOT about hunting or self defense. For years the Left has been trying to change the conversation and hide WHY gun ownership is a RIGHT and not a government granted privilege. It hasn’t worked well. Now they realize to grab our guns, they must paint Conservatives as ‘VIOLENT Right-Wing Extremists’ so the arguments by Conservatives will be discounted. The goal is not just to have the arguments of the Conservatives discounted, but to make people FEAR Conservatives so there will be no shock, only relief when these ‘VIOLENT Right-Wing Extremists’ are slated for ‘re-education’ or extermination.
First paint the opposition as the devil incarnate, then take them out. After all the technique work very well for the Nazis and the Soviets and other totalitarian regimes. Why argue with success?
It wasn’t until I was doing the research for this article that I realize the implications of what I had seen on Election day, 2018. A friend and I, wearing Trump/Pence 2020 T-shirts, were handing out flyers at our local polling place. I am close to 70 and under 5′ 4″ while my friend was a short male, perhaps 5’6″. We were talking with a couple of Democrat ladies who were over 50, when a woman in her twenties came towards us. She stopped short, stared at us, and made a wide circle around us. She was clearly SCARED TO DEATH of us!! http://www.sherv.net/scratching.head-emoticon-5921.html
This young lady was an example of just how well the propaganda about ‘VIOLENT Right-Wing Extremists’ was working.
Wolfmoon: “…Like I always say, 99.99(numbers)% of MK is done openly – mostly by the Mind Control Media, but also by individually tailored psy-ops through social media….” This young woman was a perfect example of a victim of the Mind Control Media’s psy-ops. She acted as if she truly believed we would actually get violent and hurt her!
Since the goal of the Left is to paint Conservatives as THE ENEMY and the only enemy, the last thing they want is a competing narrative out there. Therefore, ever since 9/11 the Left has been trying to shift the narrative from Islamic Terrorists to Homegrown Extremists’ aka VIOLENT Right-Wing Extremists.
Here are news stories that show the slow morphing of the focus and the narrative.
First step – shutdown Department of Homeland Security targeting of the REAL Terrorists:
After all you can not have the Sheeple realize you are importing Islamic Terrorists into the country by the bus load.
SYNOPSES of Breitbart Article:
Department of Homeland Security whistleblower Philip Haney, was a founding member of the Passenger Analysis Unit,(PAU). It was established as a stand-alone agency in 2003 after 9/11. He was moved to the National Targeting Center and tracked Tablighi Jamaat, a Salafist Muslim fundamentalist group. Haney discovered a large number of Tablighi Jamaat members were entering the United States on the visa waiver programs often on E.U. – UK passports. They were proceeding to locations known to be part of the extremist networks in the USA Haney had been piecing together. Haney and his fellow investigators found links from the Tablighi Jamaat network to Hamas, al-Qaeda,and global terrorist funding. But his initiative was deemed politically incorrect under the Obama Admin. and shut down by the Department of Homeland Security’s Civil Rights and Civil Liberties division. — link
Even Politico talks of The secret backstory of how Obama let Hezbollah off the hook “…the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States… Hezbollah turned to trafficking cocaine and laundering money through used cars to finance its expansion.”
Meanwhile the media continues to bury the evidence linking any shootings TO Jihad. Unless the person is a White Conservative and/or Christian, color, nationality and religion are left out of the news stories. In one case the Judge even blocked the prosecutors from using evidence to explain the motive of the Fort Hood shooter!
Next STEP – Start shifting the blame
Napolitano stands by controversial report
April 16, 2009
“Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Wednesday that she was briefed before the release of a controversial intelligence assessment and that she stands by the report, which lists returning veterans among terrorist risks to the U.S…..”
Note the phrases: “Threats from white supremacist and violent antigovernment groups during 2009 have been largely rhetorical and have not indicated plans to carry out violent acts.” because you will see them again in the January 18th, 2018 Politifact article where the term Far-right extremist groups “include white supremacists and anti-government militias, among others.”
It is worth at least skimming that report because it hits on many of our concerns, NAFTA, China, “Proposed imposition of firearms restrictions and weapons bans …
…the perceived loss of U.S. jobs in the manufacturing and construction sectors, and home foreclosures. … extremists attribute these losses to a deliberate conspiracy conducted by a cabal of …“financial elites.”
…the perception that illegal immigrants were taking away American jobs through their willingness to work at significantly lower wages….” (After all those concerns are all in our heads and not real right?)
Napolitano: terror threat may be highest since 9/11
February 9, 2011
Washington (CNN) — The terrorist threat to the U.S. homeland has continued to “evolve” and may now “be at its most heightened state” since the September 11, 2001, terror attacks, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told members of Congress on Wednesday.
There is an increased reliance on recruiting Westerners into terrorist organizations, she told the House Homeland Security Committee. State and local law enforcement officers are increasingly needed to combat terror, and the focus must be on aiding law enforcement to help them secure communities, she said….
LAST STEP — Show Muslims are NOT terrorist risks, but that VIOLENT Right-Wing Extremists ARE!!!
November 7, 2018 one day after elections there was a shooting that made the headlines.
Given Wolfmoon is correct and the Deep State can orchestrate some of these shooting, I think the TIMING of this shooting was off. Perhaps the guy was strong enough to fight the ‘directive’ for a few weeks. I think it was supposed to occur a week or more BEFORE the elections and be another “George Zimmerman – Trayvon Martin” media circus to drive voters TO the Democrat candidates. However it is interesting to read what was written, to see the MK Psy-ops embedded in the story because it sticks out like a sore thumb.
The story is not just about an unfortunate shooting, it is all about BLAME CASTING. The story echoes the same type of blame casting seen in the Zimmerman – Martin media circus. In that previous case the media was banging the drum about a ‘White on Black’ crime;. Or as Wolfmoon put it the Conspiracy to Advance Affirmative Action, and stir up blacks to vote for Obama.
Note it also falls right in with Wolfmoon’s proposal: “….PTSD, anybody? Think about it. AUTOMATIC COVER. And not just that. Supposedly these [MK] techniques work better in the AFTERMATH of traumatic events….”
The Left Narrative Engineering from Fortune Magazine:
Last night, a gunman opened fire in the Borderline Bar and Grill last night in Thousand Oaks, Calif. At least twelve people are dead, including Ventura County Sheriff Sgt. Ron Helus, and up to fifteen more were injured.
The shooter was Ian David Long, and he was a Marine Corps veteran. He was found dead at the scene. He seemed deeply troubled…..[As Wolfmoon said, very useful to have a killer, with PTSD, who ends up dead as cover. Almost all of these shooters end up dead because dead men can’t talk.]
we’re in a period of time when this kind of mass violence fails to shock for very long…. And a meaningful political conversation about guns, one that reflects the true concerns of all constituents…
But we’re also in a period where hate speech and the violence it inspires has been on the rise. [ Yea Think?Breitbart Rap Sheet: ***639*** Acts of Media-Approved Violence and Harassment Against Trump Supporters ]
Here’s one data point. White supremacists and other far-right extremists have killed far more people in the US since Sept. 11, 2001, than any other type of extremist group. By far. According to the Anti-Defamation League, some 71 percent of the extremist-related fatalities in the United States between 2008 and 2017 were committed by members of the far right or white-supremacist movements, compared to just 26 percent committed by people associated with Muslim groups.
And yet, official counter-terrorism efforts focus only on potential “jihadists” and not on the white supremacists who are now organizing in similar ways.….
“We’re actually seeing all the same phenomena of what was happening with groups like ISIS, same tactics, but no one talks about it because it’s far-right extremism,” P. W. Singer, a national-security strategist with the New America think tank tells Janet Reitman in a deeply reported piece for The New York Times. Even before the Trump administration, he says, “we willingly turned the other way on white supremacy because there were real political costs to talking about white supremacy.”….. http://fortune.com/2018/11/08/raceahead-california-shooting/“
BOY, they sure are cranking up the volume!
Fartacus [Cory Booker] also jumps in and keep the new narrative in the limelight…
“In American history since 9/11, we’ve had 85 major attacks in our country, 73 percent of them have been by white nationalist hate groups.” — Cory Booker on Tuesday, January 16th, 2018 in an interview on CNN
Of course you have to have the ‘Controlled Opposition’ chime in to MUDDY THE WATERS to keep the Sheeple from thinking for themselves. The key is to tone it down some but still leave the impression ‘far-right extremist groups’ are numerous and dangerous.
Polifact on the Booker quote:
Among those incidents, far-right violent extremist groups were responsible for 62 incidents (73 percent) while radical Islamist violent extremists were responsible for 23 incidents (27 percent).
Booker used the term “white nationalists,” but that’s not exactly the same thing as far-right extremist groups….
The GAO report (see page 29) shows that a subset of far-right incidents — about 38 incidents — were committed specifically by white supremacists…. https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2018/jan/18/cory-booker/fact-checking-cory-bookers-statistic-attacks-white/
Cory Booker Uses Misleading Terror Data To Attack Trump — Daily Caller
WELLlll, they got it part right at least.
“…One of the particular points of contention for Booker was how the White House allegedly ignores America’s white supremacists, whom the senator argued were more dangerous than Islamic militants….
In Booker’s dramatic monologue, he claimed that all of these attackers held “bigoted, hateful ideas about minorities” and implied he wanted 73 percent of the DHS’s time spent tracking down these far-right extremists.
However, there are serious issues with the GAO report that Booker used to argue white supremacists are the biggest terror threat to the nation. One of the major problems with the study is what incidents it lumps in with right-wing terror.
The biggest error in GAO’s data on white supremacist terror was caught by National Review’s David French last April. The Umpqua Community College shooting, one of the deadliest shootings the GAO attributed to a white supremacist, was actually committed by an African-American with no discernible ideology outside of hatred for religion.
Anti-government activists who appeared not to have been motivated by hate for minorities committed a good portion of the violent incidents the study categorized as right wing terror — contrary to what Booker argued on Tuesday. The GAO study also includes prison slayings carried out by white supremacist gangs as cases of domestic terror.
Another problem French found with the study was its glaring omission of left-wing terrorism….. https://dailycaller.com/2018/01/17/cory-booker-trump-gao-report/
Of course BOTH articles blow it, leaving the basic impression behind that there ARE far-right violent extremist groups who are more of a problem than muslim jihadists just as the Deep State planned.
So what is the truth? After all we need the truth to counter the Media’s Psy-ops.
PART FOUR: Lie with Statistics
The Left LOVES to lie using false statistics or fudged numbers. With luck I do not mess up my math. So here goes.
The problem with the narrative that far-right extremists are more dangerous than radical Islamist extremists is it does not take into account population or to be more precise incidence per 1,000,000 people.
Scrounging around the internet I found these numbers:
The US Population is ~ 327 million.
The White, non-Hispanic or Latino population make up 61.3% of the nation’s total, with the total White population (including White Hispanics and Latinos) being 76.9%. — WIKI
65 percent whites leaned right in 2016 per a Washington Compost article by Joshua N. Zingher, an assistant professor of political science at Old Dominion University.
Calculating the white, non-Hispanic, population:
61.3% of 327 million is 200 million
And if you want to get picky, and count only the right-leaners:
65% of 200 million is 130 million
A Pew estimate of Muslims in 2017 is that they are about 1.1% of the total U.S. population. A Pew Forum report on American religion found that Muslims accounted for 0.9% of American adults in 2014, up from 0.4% in 2007, due largely to immigration. (Wikipedia) Note that during the BHO administration the population of Muslims more than doubled.
1.1% of 327 million is 3.6 million
So what are the number of incidents per million people?
There were 62 incidents, assuming that those are by white right-wing people, and NOT ANTIFA or Anarchists, whom we may call white Commies.
Total White Population
62 divided by 200 million = 0.31 incidence per million
(or the picky number)
62 divided by 130 million = or 0.48 incidence per million
23 incidents by radical Islamist extremists
23 divided by 3.6 million = 6.4 incidence per million. That’s 20 TIMES THE RATE.
So Fartacus is Farting PURE Pig feces yet again!
But that leaves the real question. HOW do you GET ‘VIOLENT Right-Wing Extremists’ in the first place, when Conservatives are generally more peaceful and law abiding than the Left???
PART FIVE: Producing VIOLENT Right-Wing Extremists.
This is where WolfMoon’s insight and experience comes into play and the light bulb went off in my head.
“Nobody will tell them about the mathematics of low wins on high purses – the idea that if 9 out of 10 low-level money-maker MK ops fail, but one wins, it EASILY pays for the failures. Americans have been conditioned to believe that only highly reliable techniques are ever deployed. People fail to understand that failure is an accepted part of statistical wins.”
With the media providing cover and a corrupt government fudging the statistics, all you need is to INCREASE VIOLENCE among white males and then place the selected stories all over the news.
But HOW do you increase violence? DRUGS! Not only street drugs but carefully selected drugs administered TO the target —>WHITE MEN<—… or the little boys who will grow up to be white men.
They KNEW the drugs they are forcing on school children would turn them violent. THEY KNEW DECADES AGO!
..in 1973, psychiatrists were giving amphetamines to volunteers in order to observe their reactions. The reactions frightened researchers, who noted that several of the subjects expressed “a desire to kill” or to do something “bad or destructive.”….” (This and the following quotes are sourced in my “Thursday comment” mentioned below.)
So they came up with a ‘new disease’
“…it was not until the late 1960s that the American Psychiatric Association (APA) formally recognized ADHD as a mental disorder….”
Prior to that, in 1957 Laufer et al….“found that “children with the hyperkinetic impulse disorder… had a lower threshold for clinical responses in EEG to the administration of metrazol than children without the hyperkinetic syndrome. Following the administration of amphetamines, however, the threshold was similar to that of children without evidence of the syndrome…”
If you want the history: *https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3000907/
So now you have a reason to administer amphetamines to school children without an evidence of even ‘minimal brain damage’
PART SIX: Next step is to make sure the Kids HAVE THE SYMPTOMS!
Well that is easy:
1. NO discipline is pushed: The Hand that Rocked the Cradle: A Critical Analysis of Rockefeller Philanthropic Funding, 1920-1960
2. Mom is pushed out of the house via Feminism: How The Rockefellers Re-Engineered Women
3. Change the diet to a high carb, high sugar diet and put candy and soda machines in the schools.
4. REMOVE EXERCISE
You should see my lambs when I let them out of the dog crate in the morning. They buck and kick and run and jump… And yet we expect to CAGE little children, ESPECIALLY BOYS all day long in daycare or school without them rebelling?
And when they do we call it a ‘mental problem?
And people swallow this?
Are you effing kidding me??
There are 73.7 million children in the USA. And According to the CDC “More than 5 in 10 children (53.5%) aged 3-17 years with behavior disorders received treatment.” AGE THREE???
This is a short summary of my Thursday Comment It included the links for the following quotes.
“In 1996, 10 percent to 12 percent of all American schoolboys were taking the addictive Ritalin.”
“A study released this month by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia found that the number of teenagers who admit to abusing prescription medications tripled from 1992 to 2003, while in the general population such abuse had doubled”
“…Among elementary students, 17% of all students and 33% of white boys had been diagnosed with ADHD and the vast majority had been medicated for this condition at some time during the 1997-98 school year…. Ninety percent of all identified cases had been medicated for the disorder at some point …”
Think that is bad? It gets WORSE!
“… These findings suggest that as of 1998, school-based studies of ADHD prevalence captured approximately half of the cases treated in the community. Preliminary data from a follow-up study suggest that as of 2002, school records capture as few as 25% of ADHD cases (LeFever, 2002)….”
RITALIN AND VIOLENCE
… there are now over 5 million school kids in America on psychotropic drugs, most of which are prescribed and administered by the schools themselves. ….December 1996, there are four million kids on Ritalin alone, one of the most powerful of the drugs now being given routinely to children in American schools.
What is most disturbing, however, is the growing awareness that the increased violence among school children may have more to do with the drugs than with the guns they use to carry out their violence. ”’
NO Sh…T You think??
So there you have Wolfmoon’s “low-level money-maker MK ops” They only need 0.0001% of the White boys they mess up to go violent. The added benefit is it is the mostly highly intelligent ALPHA males who are likely to rebel and have their brains permanently messed up. A real Win-Win.
So you have the stage set.
There are 73.7 million children in the USA, 14.7 million are boys and about 1/2 are white or ~7 million. If 10% to 33% are drugged, that is at least 7,00,000 to 2,310,000 possible ticking time bombs. Even if only 1 in 10,000 go violent you have 70 or more artificially created incidents.
Remember Booker is citing a GAO Report about incidences from from Sept. 12, 2001 — the day after the 9/11 terror attacks — through Dec. 31, 2016, or fifteen years. “In 1996, 10 percent to 12 percent of all American schoolboys were taking the addictive Ritalin.” So plenty of time for those boys to grow up and kill people…
…. there are now over 5 million school kids in America on psychotropic drugs, most of which are prescribed and administered by the schools themselves. ….December 1996, there are four million kids on Ritalin alone, one of the most powerful of the drugs now being given routinely to children in American schools.
What is most disturbing, however, is the growing awareness that the increased violence among school children may have more to do with the drugs than with the guns they use to carry out their violence.
…Eric Harris, 18, who, with his friend Dylan Klebold, murdered his fellow students at Columbine, had been taking Luvox, one of the new antidepressant drugs approved in 1997 by the Food and Drug Administration for treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD, among children under 18.
…. T. J. Solomon, 15, who shot and wounded six classmates at Heritage High School in Conyers, Ga., on May 20 was on Ritalin for depression.
Shawn Cooper, 15, who fired two shotgun rounds, narrowly missing students and teachers at his high school in Notus, Idaho, was also on Ritalin, for bipolar disorder.
Kip Kinkel, 15, was on Ritalin and Prozac. He murdered his parents and then went on to school where he fired on students in the cafeteria,…
Mitchell Johnson, the 13-year-old student at Westside Middle School in Jonesboro, Ark., who mowed down several children and a teacher with his friend Andrew Golden, 11, was on some sort of medication since he was being treated by a psychiatrist…..
Then all you need to do is use the media to drive home the narrative ‘WHITE-SUPREMACISTS are TERRORISTS!
