Colorado Tragedy and the Occupy Shooter
Before I say anything, I would like to say that my heart grieves for the people who were wounded and died at the hands of James Holmes, who is obviously a very psychotic individual. It was a tragedy by all counts and one that may not have been avoided in spite of how many anti-gun laws that some would like to see in place. The idea that you can go to a movie for a few hours of enjoyment and relaxation only to wind up wounded or dead seems surreal, yet it exists in our society today.
However, the blood was still running when Brian Ross of ABC pointed the finger at 55-year-old Jim Homes, who happened to be a Tea Party member, as he tried to politicize the tragic situation. “Ross admitted on air that he did not know whether the two men were the same, but still went ahead with his claim that the tragedy in Aurora in which 12 people were killed and 59 injured could be linked to the grassroots group.”  As it turns out, the Jim Holmes that Ross pointed his finger at and the James Holmes who was the actual perpetrator of the recent Colorado massacre of individuals attending a midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” were in no way connected.
Frankly, if I happened to be the Jim Holmes that Ross pointed to in his throw-away comment, I would already be talking with lawyers about suing both Brian Ross and ABC. It doesn’t matter that Ross apologized or not. The damage was done and Ross knew it at the time. Simply apologizing for his “mistake” means little because he could have easily done the research before making the comment on the air.
This is an example of how the news bureaus will politicize a situation for their own personal gain. Rather than focus on facts, Brian Ross and ABC chose to push some buttons. They did this by erroneously (and rather carelessly) by attempting to the point the finger once again at the Tea Party, which mainstream media bureaus have been attempting to portray as radical terrorists since the inception. However, regardless of how much violence and true terror there is that’s related to the Occupy Movement, that particular movement seems to always get a pass. Even if/when a situation concerning the Occupy Movement is mentioned by the news – like a rape or shooting – it’s reported then they will quickly move onto something else entirely. To the mainstream media, when bad things happen that are connected to the Occupy Movement, it’s not really a big deal. Let’s move on. Nothing to see here folks. However, had this situation regarding the shooting in Colorado been perpetrated by someone connected with the Tea Party, we would never hear the end of it.
But it is not simply that liberals want to desperately blame this on conservatives. Like the “Fast and Furious” debacle, which appeared to be something this administration dreamed up in an effort to emphasize the need for greater gun control, it may well be that this terrible event is more of the same. Sounds outlandish you say? Maybe, but the difficulty is that it has become exceedingly difficult for many to trust this particular administration and the appointed head of the Department of Justice. We know that in the 1990s, Eric Holder was given speeches saying that people needed to be literally brainwashed into thinking that guns were not needed any longer in society. We know Holder’s unhidden agenda with respect to guns.
Here’s an excellent article by the folks at Western Journalism (see link below). They ask several cogent questions and before you cast them aside as conspiracy theory or simply conjecture, take the time to actually read their responses to those questions.
The first question the author of the article asks is “Was the Colorado Shooting Staged by Obama?” Whether it was or it wasn’t, or whether you believe this is a pertinent question, the other questions and facts bear consideration.
The article speaks of the fact that the shooter’s behavior simply doesn’t add up. Here is a guy who was, by all accounts, very shy, who then not only attacks, kills and wounds innocent people, but paints his hair red and refers to himself as “The Joker.”
Several experts have weighed in on the matter and determined that not only does his behavior not add up, but there are several other things about Holmes that are rather mystifying. It has all the markings of someone who was specifically chosen for a mission.
He had some “exotic” gear that he used during his massacre. He was dressed like a SWAT member, used tear gas, and had “complex booby-traps” back at his apartment. The fact that he simply surrendered to police admitting that he was the guy they wanted.
Anders Behring Breivik had a history of bad behavior prior to the events which transpired in 2011 when he committed mass murder, killing 69 individuals in Norway. Before that, he firebombed buildings in Oslo that resulted in 8 deaths.
The only offense in Holmes’ background prior to the recent rampage in Colorado was a traffic ticket.
Interestingly enough, the article that I’m referring to also points out that for this individual to have the type of equipment he had means that he had funding. You don’t just walk into a store and buy the things James Holmes had. It takes connections and money. The article also reminds us that the FBI has admitted “to setting up terror plots.”  Few really want to believe that our government in the United States is capable of doing this against its own citizenry. Do we really want to know what our government is capable of doing to set and bring forth its own agenda? Read it for yourself. 
The problem with this massacre is that once again, people will start screaming for tighter gun control measures as if those measures save lives or stem the tide of crime. They simply don’t and this has been proven repeatedly, but it falls on the deaf ears of those who refuse to acknowledge its truth.
People tend to think that if we could just outlaw guns, then all would be well with the world. Has that worked for any other crime? Have the anti-drug laws stemmed the tide of illicit drug use and the many deaths that are connected with that? No. Have all the laws that are in place against murder and against speeding and against anything you can think of actually helped to eliminate these crimes? Not at all. The laws – like the laws given to Moses – simply allow for a punishment to be meted out when those laws are broken. Laws do not stop criminals.
But you say, if we could eliminate guns, then crime would go down as well. If we look to Chicago where the city leaders illegally prohibited people from owning guns to use in defense of themselves in their own homes, crime went up. But maybe you’re saying that if we could eliminate all guns from everywhere, then we would succeed. That would involve actually eliminating ALL guns AND ammo AND the manufacturers of those weapons. You think that can be done? Wake up because it can’t.
Most of the guns that wind up in criminals’ hands in the United States are not those stolen from pawn shops, or gun shops, or even from the home of the average person. The guns that criminals obtain – illegally - are imported to this country from countries like Brazil and other places in South America, through Mexico. They are not traceable and can be purchased on the Black Market of any large city. It’s a no-brainer and very easy for the criminal to obtain.
Every intelligent person should be able to understand the problem. Guns can be obtained by criminals who routinely and completely ignore all laws. They don’t buy them legally through gun stores. They simply buy them on the streets.
“Fast and Furious” was designed to “prove” to Americans that there was a major loophole in the purchase of guns in this country that wound up selling guns to criminals in Mexico. These were done through “straw purchases” where someone who has a clean record comes into the store and buys a gun for someone who does not have a clean record. The ATF not only knew what was going on, but they wanted it to happen because the DOJ wanted Americans to believe that gun stores here were in the business of supplying arms to drug cartels there, in Mexico. If they could get Americans to buy this idea, the government would be able to succeed in squashing gun rights in this country.
This massacre is terrible. I wish it had not occurred, but its timing was perfect. On July 27, 2012 – in just a few days – Congress will vote on whether or not to ratify the Arms Trade Treaty with the United Nations. This will ultimately and eventually permit the UN Peacekeeping Forces to hold sway over gun laws in this country. It will mean that law-abiding citizens will be affected. The criminals will not be, just like they are not affected now.
For all practical purposes, we could say that James Holmes was a law-abiding citizen, except for the fact that he had items that he should not have had in his possession. Where did he get these? How did he get these? Where did the money come from to obtain these items? How did an unemployed individual like James Holmes obtain these things? It is reported that these items that Holmes had totaled roughly $20,000. Where did he get the money for them? Surely, if he had that kind of money, it would have appeared in a bank account somewhere. He had an AR-15 rifle, which goes for at least $1,000. He had a bullet proof vest, a ton of ammunition – 6,000 rounds of it – and we’re not even counting all the money invested in the booby-traps in his apartment.
The article also asks the question of where and how James Holmes received the training to create these sophisticated booby-trap devices?
The article points out, “All this looks like James Holmes completed a ‘mission’ and then calmly ended that mission by surrendering to police and admitting everything. The mission, as we are now learning, was to cause as much terror and mayhem as possible, then to have that multiplied by the national media at exactly the right time leading up the UN vote next week on a global small arms treaty that could result in gun confiscation across America. (http://lewrockwell.com/eddlem/eddlem61.1.html).” 
This is not as far-fetched as some would believe based on the facts surrounding “Fast and Furious” alone. Could it be that this is exactly why Eric Holder refuses to turn over documentation to the committee investigating “Fast and Furious” because they would find out factually what they appear to already know – that “Fast and Furious” as well as this most recent tragedy are efforts of this administration to abrogate the 2nd Amendment?
By the way, if you think that is odd or strange, then check this set of facts: “Occupy Wall Street’s main website, OccupyWallStreet.org, has named Colorado Massacre Shooter James Holmes as an Occupy Black Bloc Member, which has been confirmed by Occupy Black Bloc researcher and expert private investigator Bill Warner.” 
Interestingly enough, the page that highlights James Holmes as a member no longer exists. Here was the link which goes nowhere now:
Has anyone even bothered to check whether or not James Holmes is a registered Democrat? That can’t be hard to determine. George Zimmerman is a registered Democrat, but I don’t hear the news bureaus announcing that, do you? No, they’d rather paint a picture of a “right-winger” bend on the destruction of innocent people for the preservation of American “values.” That falls apart when we learn that the perpetrator was actually a Democrat, doesn’t it? Somehow, it’s no longer newsworthy to know which party the perpetrator is registered to.
Why aren’t Brian Ross, ABC and other mainstream media bureaus reporting on this information? Because it doesn’t play into their own politics of the left. They want to see the 2nd Amendment eradicated and they won’t stop there either.
What can be done about this if it is true? I’m not sure anything can be done about it. Ultimately, God is certainly in control, but it is amazing to see things transpire they way they are doing these days. We have prayer and we should use it to remain as close as possible to our Lord in communion with Him. We also must not lose sight of our job as authentic Christians to spread the gospel of grace to those who are dying.
Someone asked on a forum if this tragic incident would keep me from going out to movies. Taking it a step further, would this tragedy keep me sequestered in my own home? The answer is no, it will not. There is a far greater likelihood that I would be killed in a car accident as opposed to being shot to death by some deranged person. In fact, the odds are greater that I would die by heart attack rather than be shot to death.
God has my life in His hands. When the time comes for me to breathe my last, I have no idea how that end will come. It will however, be interesting to look back knowing that for me, this life is over and I will have entered into the heavenly reward that awaits all of God’s children. I have no death wish at all. I simply recognize that just as my birth was in God’s hand, so is my death. My life is not mine.
Satan is the god of this world and because of him, much tragedy, sadness, and absolute evil is spilling onto the land. Our “leaders” in Washington, DC are no real help in the matter. It appears as though there is precious little that is blocking Satan from doing whatever he wants to do in order to bring his goals to fruition.
Of course, God is the One who holds Satan on a tether and because of it, he is only allowed to do so much at any given point in time. Paul tells us in 2 Thessalonians 2:6 “And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed.” I believe this is referring to God the Holy Spirit who keeps complete evil at bay until the time for it to be revealed will be here. Until that time of course, plenty can happen and is happening.
It’s just really strange to actually watch it unfold before our very eyes. It is weird and even a bit unsettling to see how much leeway Satan is given to accomplish his tasks as he prepares for his final takeover of planet earth through the coming man of sin – the Antichrist.
The world, by and large, is fully deluded and according to this same section of 2 Thessalonians 2, they are so because they want to be. They want to be because they have no love for the truth. They prefer lies.
Do you prefer the truth or lies?
