New Hat

I just got a new “Tinfoil Hat” and I’m itching to try it out. The Las Vegas incident seems like an ideal opportunity.

While it is too soon to know if there are signs that the Las Vegas attack was a false flag, possibly supported
and enabled by what Ron Paul and others refer to as the Deep State, anyone who does not at least ask the question has not been paying attention.

There is convincing evidence that law enforcement is not telling us the whole story.

Gematria: The Elite's Obsession With Numbers

The world we live in today is controlled by an elite cabal. Very wealthy men and women own the land, control the religions,secret societies, the media, the banks, and the resources. They don't care about us. They treat us like cattle. To be branded, taxed and milked dry. They have been ruling since before the days of Babylon and probably much longer. They have installed puppet governments around the world that represent them not us. The sooner people realize this the better off we will be.

This elite cabal are obsessed with numbers and rituals. They study the caballah (where the word cabal comes from) and as part of their practice they are well versed in Gematria. This elite that controls the media, 5-6 corporations control the media, codes all their stories and sports with Gematria.

Mass Shootings Are One Type Of Gun Violence

Maggie Koerth-Baker wrote a story at fivethrityeight.com (a site that loves statistics) warning that mass shootings are a bad way to understand gun violence.

In it she makes a few interesting points about gun violence being many problems, not one.

1. Mass shootings are rare. Of the more than 33,000 gun death each year, two-thirds are suicides.

2. Most gun murder victims are men, ages 15-34, and 66% are black. In mass shootings, 50% are women.

She says mass shootings are up, homicide rates are down, and suicide rates are climbing.

“I know I join all Vermonters in reacting with horror and utter disbelief to the slaughter of innocent life in LasVegas early this morning. It’s hard for any of us to imagine the sheer terror experienced by concertgoers running fortheir lives, unsure of the depraved shooter’s location.
