During a solo concert this week in Barcelona, Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters took a moment to address the audience about the recent bombing of Syria. Waters said he was approached by someone before the concert who wanted to get onstage and speak on behalf of the White Helmets about the alleged chemical attacks in Douma.

Instead of bringing the anonymous man onstage, Waters addressed the crowd on the issue himself, saying that he believes the White Helmets are a propaganda organization on a mission to justify western intervention in the region. Waters said he believes that the person who wanted to make a statement was well-intentioned, but misled, and then offered his opinion to the audience.

The White Helmets is a fake organization that exists only to create propaganda for jihadists and terrorists,” Waters said. “That’s my belief. We have opposing beliefs. If we were to listen to the propaganda of the White Helmets and others, we would be encouraged to encourage our governments to start dropping bombs on people in Syria. This would be a mistake of monumental proportions for us as human beings.”

What we should do is go and persuade our governments not to go and drop bombs on people. And certainly not until we have done all the research that is necessary so that we would have a clear idea of what is really going on. Because we live in the world where propaganda seems to be more important than the reality of what is really going on,” he added.

The White Helmets have been known to work with terrorists to achieve regime change in Syria. The white helmets were also caught staging videos of atrocities in an attempt to bait western powers into war and were later forced to apologize.

The group also came under fire last June when video surfaced that showed members assisting in disposing of the dead bodies of Syrian soldiers. The US-backed “aid workers” were seen celebrating their kill whilst holding the heads of the dead.

As it stands, the White Helmets are heavily funded by the U.S. and the UK, as well as many other international entities. That may be the reason they always worked in rebel-held areas of the greater Syrian conflict. The WH serve as a de facto propaganda wing of the West to sway public opinion into supporting regime change in Syria.

As proof, one only has to look to the story of Omran Daqneesh, a Syrian boy reportedly pulled from the rubble of a bombed out building. Daqneesh’s image was broadcast around the world and used as a propaganda tool against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The truth was later revealed by The Free Thought Project and others that it is highly likely the opposition itself destroyed the very building in which Daqneesh was residing, then used his image to promote the myth that he was attacked by Syrian forces.

According to The New York Times, Mr. Daqneesh told the real story of what happened immediately following the bombing. He never supported the opposition and appeared on Syrian state-run media to proclaim his support for Assad. He described how the White Helmets used his son as a propaganda tool without his permission.

”They took Omran, got him to the ambulance, where they filmed him. It was against my will. I was still upstairs in the house,” Mr. Daqneesh said, adding that he was pressured, and even offered money to use his son as a pawn in propaganda against the Assad regime.

Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters has been consistently anti-war throughout his entire career and is no stranger to controversy. As The Free Thought Project reported in 2016, Waters made some bold statements about the war crimes of Israel in an interview with The Independent. He explained how artists are discouraged from speaking out about the atrocities taking place at the hands of the Israeli military.

“The only response to BDS is that it is anti-Semitic, I know this because I have been accused of being a Nazi and an anti-Semite for the past 10 years. My industry has been particularly recalcitrant in even raising a voice [against Israel]. There’s me and Elvis Costello, Brian Eno, Manic Street Preachers, one or two others, but there’s nobody in the United States where I live. I’ve talked to a lot of them, and they are scared s***less….” he said.

“If they say something in public they will no longer have a career. They will be destroyed. I’m hoping to encourage some of them to stop being frightened and to stand up and be counted because we need them. We need them desperately in this conversation in the same way we needed musicians to join protesters over Vietnam,” Waters added.

If propaganda is what the establishment uses to create a culture of war, then art is what the average person can use to create a culture of peace.

In times of oppression, it is very difficult for people to speak out against the constant tyranny, and when they do it can be even more difficult to get others to listen. Art is a subtle way of getting the message out to the masses. This is useful because a lot of times people are so entrenched in the mainstream culture that they will become defensive when they come face to face with facts that call their worldview into question. However, if these same ideas are presented in the form of art, people are much less defensive and are more willing to approach the information with an open mind. Art is also used by activists who want to send a message but still remain under the radar.

If you really examine some of the greatest works of art in history, you will find that the vast majority of the time, the artist was motivated by some kind of social cause. The art that really moves people and leaves a lasting impression is rarely made with the thought of making a buck or climbing the social ladder. In today’s culture, massive advertising schemes and flashy graphics are enough to catch most people’s attention long enough to make a purchase, but you’ll find that the works of art with real staying power are typically sending some kind of social message.

Medical sources have claimed dozens of people were killed in a Douma, Syria chemical attack on Saturday, but those numbers are impossible to verify, prompting Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to say there’s been no evidence found of a chemical weapons attack in Syria’s formerly rebel-held town.

The alleged attack took place over the weekend, however, Lavrov said Russian specialists and aid workers had visited the area, which rebel fighters have started leaving under a surrender deal. “Our military specialists have visited this place, along with representatives of the Syrian Red Crescent… and they did not find any trace of chlorine or any other chemical substance used against civilians,” he said.

More importantly, the US and France have threatened a “joint, strong response.”President Donald Trump said on Monday that the situation was being assessed and “major decisions” would be made within 48 hours. But Moscow has already declared the chemical attack as “false news” and warned against any intervention in Syria. 

The Russian Foreign Ministry denounced the latest reports about the chemical attack that allegedly affected dozens of civilians in the militant-controlled town of Douma. It said the reports were another example of a continuous series of fake news about the use of chlorine and other chemical agents by the government forces.”   Even more telling, as the ministry pointed out, was that the source of the reports was the notorious civil defense group, the White Helmets, which has been repeatedly accused of having ties to terrorists, as well as other groups based in the US and UK.

According to RT, Russia has previously warned about a false-flag chemical attack being prepared in the recent months, the ministry said. Those who are not interested in a genuine political settlement of the Syrian crisis are seeking to complicate the situation on the ground, it added.

“The goal of this… baseless speculation is to shield the terrorists and… the radical opposition that refuse to engage in a political settlement [process], as well as to justify potential military strikes from the outside,” the statement said. It then warned that any military interference in Syria conducted under “far-fetched or fabricated pretexts” would be “absolutely unacceptable” and could lead to “dire consequences.”

The current tensions in the Middle East at first appear to be random acts of probes and military maneuvers. The Syrian question is a big one. What is happening over there? Well, a continuation of Obama-era policies of supporting “freedom fighters” against the reign of Bashar al-Assad, the leader of Syria…that is what is happening. Recently, Russian contractors were killed in battles against U.S. supported “rebels.” The Russian contractors cannot serve Russia (it’s against their law for merc’s to do such), but nothing stopped them from being hired by Assad and Syria.

But “freedom fighters” are only termed that by the United States when an insurgency is desired to overthrow an existing government that is not in favor with the U.S…. a “heroic people’s revolution” in the never-ending quest to force nations into the “freedom” of American democracy.SHTFPlan

It isn’t too far off base to think that this chemical attack was a false flag and in preparations for weeks or even months.

Superficial, obvious “reasons” for war are the ones the public swallows, gulping down from the firehose supplied by the ceaseless litany of lies and drivel from the mainstream media. The true reasons can only be found by those willing to not swallow the “crafted narrative.” We must look for the underlying money trails and political agendas of those self-serving leaders…puppet masters who see false flags as tools with State-sponsorship that fulfill their own goals and plans…at the cost (as usual) of We the People. SHTFPlan

Unfortunately, the “price” Trump wants Russia, Iran, and Syria to pay will cost the American taxpayer.  Was this a false flag attack? Perhaps.  But perhaps the only thing we really know for certain is that the mainstream media will spin this news story and paint the picture for us all, manipulating the simple-minded into accepting whatever atrocity may come from it: all in the name of “freedom” of course.

A major media bombshell is now confirming the shocking truth that Natural News reported first: Deputies were ordered to stand down and avoid entering the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, even as the shooting was taking place.

This irrefutable fact has been maliciously labeled a “conspiracy theory” by the fake news media (CNN, etc.), but now it is confirmed by multiple sources (as is usually the case after the fake news media gets it wrong).

Laura Ingraham is now reporting from Fox News (see video below):

Our sources near the Broward County Sheriff’s Department are telling us that the deputies who arrived at the scene of the shooting were told not to enter the school unless their body cameras were turned on. And then we found that the deputies did not have body cameras, so they did not enter the building or engage the shooter.  So curiously, police also lost radio communications during the Parkland shooting. And our source claims that radio communication also went dead during the Ft. Lauderdale airport shooting of 2017…

In other words, not only were the deputies ordered to stand down, but the communications outage seems to be a pattern among false flag shooting operations (carried out to push a gun control agenda).

Fox News is also reporting that deputies “would not let medical personnel into the school,” reports The Daily Wire, confirming yet again that both armed officers and EMTs were prohibited from entering the school while students were bleeding out. This was obviously done on purpose in order to maximize the body count for political gain. (And CNN was immediately ready with a staged “town hall” event to cast blame on the NRA and the GOP, as planned.)

Teacher identified the shooter as a masked “police” officer wearing a bulletproof vest and “full metal gear”

Here’s where things really go down the rabbit hole. A teacher named Stacy Lippel appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America, where she described her direct encounter with the shooter. She’s a teacher at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, of course, and YouTube has been busy scrubbing this video off all channels to make sure you don’t see it. Watch the video below while you still can. Efforts are under way to memory hole this video interview from the ‘net.

In this video, she says the following:

I suddenly saw the shooter about 20 feet from me standing at the end of the hallway actively shooting down the hallway. Just a barrage of bullets.  And I’m staring at him thinking ‘why is the police here?’ This is strange because he’s in full metal garb. Helmet, face-mask, bulletproof armor, shooting this rifle that I’ve never seen before.

Notice that she immediately recognizes him as a police officer, wearing police gear. She specifically names the helmet, face mask and bulletproof armor. None of this gear was worn by Nikolas Cruz, according to all the media reports, photos and videos of his arrest. Stacy did not describe the shooter as a “student.”

In other words, this teacher is not describing Nikolas Cruz. She’s describing an armed, masked, geared-up person doing the shooting.

Now are you beginning to understand why the sheriff’s deputies were ordered to stay outside the building?

In truth, this shooting was augmented by at least one masked gunman other than Nikolas Cruz. The deputies were told to stand down so that they didn’t witness this second shooter. Nikolas Cruz very likely also shot some students himself, but it’s clear from the testimony and cover-up that Cruz did not act alone.

No wonder YouTube is desperately deleting all videos that mention a “second shooter.” If the truth came out, the fake official story would completely unravel.

That’s why I’m launching a new video platform to compete with YouTube, by the way. Read full details here.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School teacher Stacey Lippel is speaking out about what – or more specifically, who – she saw shooting up the school on that fateful Valentine’s Day. Lippel says the shooter was in “full metal garb” which is in stark contrast to the image (above) of the alleged shooter that the mainstream media continues to show us.

Lippel, who is a creative writing teacher, says she was only about 2o feet away from the shooter as a “barrage” of bullets flew down the hallway and into classrooms. Lippel’s arm was grazed by one of the bullets fired by the gunman who she says was in “full metal garb” and was even wearing a helmet.

“I suddenly saw the shooter about 20 feet from me standing at the end of the hallway actively shooting down the hallway. Just a barrage of bullets.  And I’m staring at him thinking ‘why is the police here?’ This is strange because he’s in full metal garb. Helmet, face-mask, bulletproof armor, shooting this rifle that I’ve never seen before.” –Stacy Lippel

Watch the video before YouTube removes it. The site has been scrubbing all videos that do not parrot the mainstream media’s official narrative.

In the interview with ABC‘s Good Morning America, Lippel describes the shooter very differently than the image we were shown of Cruz in handcuffs on the ground. “I had a good visual of him. I saw him shoot a barrage of bullets,”  she said. But this teacher isn’t the only one making claims that don’t align with the students turned propagandists for a gun control agenda.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Alexa says she passed school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz immediately after the shooting and had a brief exchange with him.  She also said there was, for certain, more than one shooter.

Youtube deleted video

Both of these eyewitness accounts fly in the face of the official narrative the mainstream media is expecting us to digest. By now, it’s evident that the media has an agenda and is working hand in hand with globalists to disarm the good American people with phony narratives and false flag attacks that become immediately about the loss of rights instead of about the gaping holes in their own story.

Police maintain the suspect Nikolas Cruz arrived via an Uber ride at 2:19 p.m. and initiated his attack within 1 minute. If true, that would mean that Cruz would have had to suit up into full metal body armor, put on a full helmet and the whole nine yards, all the while assembling an AR-15 rifle which was purportedly packed into a duffle bag with a number of fully-loaded magazines. [All in under 60 seconds]

An affidavit filed by the Broward County Sheriff states: “Cruz stated that he was the gunman who entered the school campus armed with an AR-15 and began shooting students that he saw in the hallways and on the school grounds. Cruz stated that he brought additional loaded magazines to the school campus and kept them hidden in a backpack until he got on campus to begin his assault.” -Intellihub

One other oddity that was found buried and almost unnoticeable was an interesting detail found in an article in the Chicago Tribune. It claims that police found a kid in a bulletproof vest after the shooting. The student claims his dad, who is a cop, gave him the bulletproof vest.

In the classroom where Mackenzie Hill had been hiding, police broke through the door. As the officers were guiding students out, they noticed something odd: One of the students had put on a bulletproof vest.

The student said he’d been given the vest by his father, a police officer.

Even in the safest city in Florida, he’d brought it to school with him, just in case. –Chicago Tribune

Many ask questions because things continue to not add up. Calling those who want the truth “conspiracy theorists” in order to shut down the argument doesn’t prove the media, who has been caught lying and propagandizing for the government and a globalist agenda many times, is being genuine.

News that the school’s security video was on a 20-minute delay is distressing. The latest development that an armed guard, “The Coward of Broward County”, stood outside while the shooting was in progress is contemptible.

Mass shootings have become so frequent over the last few years; they have almost lost their power to shock us.

Unfortunately, there is no one law or combination of laws that will prevent another school shooting from happening again. The aftermath of every massacre is filled with rhetoric from politicians, parents and the press demanding action. Then the dust settles and we forget about it…until the next one.

The behavior of most school shooters raises numerous red flags prior to the actual attack. Nikolas Cruz was no exception. And yes, I am quite aware that we see so much more clearly in hindsight. But this young man sent out so many signals prior to the shooting that, if acted upon, may very well have prevented the attack.

The frequency of school shootings can be reduced through a dual strategy. The first part involves setting up a support network to include students, teachers, local law enforcement, government agencies who have interacted with the individual concerned and the FBI. Essentially, it should become a formal version of “if you see something, say something.” But this network must have an established, organized structure through which information would flow in a direct, predetermined manner (leaving a paper trail) to ultimately reach the FBI. People need to be held accountable. The FBI must set up a formal department to deal with these threats.  School shootings are now happening with regularity and they must be treated as the serious domestic threat they have become.

The FBI were notified twice about Nikolas Cruz, but failed to act. There is no excuse for this.

Nikolas Cruz was a very troubled young man. Police had been called to his home on many occasions.

“For years before Nikolas Cruz gunned down classmates and teachers at his former high school, his mother had repeatedly called police to the home to help deal with his violent outbursts, threats and self-destructive behavior, according to police documents obtained by CNN on Friday.

The incident reports, which are as recent as September 2016, describe Cruz as suffering from mental illness and being “emotionally handicapped,” and being on behavioral medication. One notes, “He has mentioned in the past that he would like to purchase a firearm.”

The documents include more than 30 reports going back as far as 2011, covering misbehavior by Cruz and some by his younger brother. They add further depth to the emerging portrait of Cruz as an unstable teen who had long been on the radar of law enforcement, behavioral specialists, teachers and fellow students.”

“Those emergency calls ranged from ‘mentally ill person’ to ‘child/elderly abuse’ to ‘domestic disturbance’ to ‘missing person.’ According to the court documents, details of those calls weren’t available and almost all of them are marked ‘no written report.’”

How is it possible that Cruz was able to pass a background check? Because of Cruz’s misbehavior, his mother had called the local police to their home over 30 times between 2011 and September 2016. However, Cruz was not arrested.

Four days after his 18th birthday, “sheriff’s deputies and adult welfare investigators” from the Department of Children and Family Services visited the Cruz home in response to a report that Cruz had “cut his arms on Snapchat and said he wanted to buy a gun.” Excerpts from the agency’s final report follow.

“Mr. Cruz has fresh cuts on both his arms. Mr. Cruz stated he plans to go out and buy a gun. It is unknown what he is buying the gun for.”

Investigators concluded there were “some implications” for Cruz’s safety but determined he was receiving adequate support from his school and outpatient care from Henderson Mental Health in Broward County.

“[Cruz’s] final level of risk is low as [he] resides with his mother, attends school and receives counseling through Henderson.”

His current “attorneys said the Snapchat incident alerted at least four local agencies — Children and Family Services, the Broward Sheriff’s Office, the Broward school district and Henderson Behavioral Health, one of the largest mental health providers in the county — that Cruz was in crisis and posed a potential danger to himself and others.

“Every single red flag was being thrown up by this kid, four days after his 18th birthday, and nothing was done to help him,” said Chief Assistant Public Defender Gordon Weekes.

The owners of the gun store followed the law in their sale of an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle to Nikolas Cruz in February 2017.  They ran a background check, as they were required to do, which he passed. That is astounding.

The system checks for felony convictions, instances of domestic violence, addiction to illegal drugs and involuntary commitments due to mental illness.

But it does not check for school expulsions, other mental health history or domestic disturbances that do not result in criminal charges.

The system also does not review a person’s public statements or explicit threats to commit violence, such as Cruz’s multiple comments online — in his own name — in which he boldly declared his intentions.

“I wanna shoot people with my AR-15,” said one.

One of Cruz’s peers notified local law enforcement about his statements on social media. When she felt she hadn’t been taken seriously, she contacted the FBI on January 5, 2018.

“You know, it’s just so much,” she said on the call. “I know he’s—he’s going to explode.” She said she was making the call because she wanted a “clear conscience if he takes off and, and just starts shooting places up.”…

The caller began by saying Mr. Cruz had the mental capacity of a 12- or 14-year-old. She said he had started posting messages on his Instagram account that he wanted to kill himself and she’d alerted police to that threat, but wasn’t sure what happened in that investigation.

More recently, Mr. Cruz “switched it to he wants to kill people,” the unidentified woman told the operator in a somewhat rambling conversation.

“Something is gonna happen,” she said. “Because he’s, he doesn’t have the mental capacity. He can’t, he’s so outraged if someone talks to him about certain things.”

The caller described disturbing behavior by Mr. Cruz, including a propensity for cutting up frogs and, at least on one occasion, a bird.

The FBI took no action.

The FBI was also warned about Cruz by a YouTube video blogger in September 2017. Cruz had left a comment on his blog saying, “I’m going to be a professional school shooter.” Once again, the FBI failed to act.

Math teacher Jim Gard said that school authorities had emailed teachers about Mr. Cruz’s behavior. “We were told last year that he wasn’t allowed on campus with a backpack on him…There were problems with him last year threatening students, and I guess he was asked to leave campus.”

In Cruz’s case, the red flags could not be misconstrued.

Students, teachers, Children and Family Services, the Broward Sheriff’s Office, the Broward School District, Henderson Behavioral Health, and two phone calls to the FBI…how was this not prevented?

The second part of the strategy involves the hardening of targets, which would significantly decrease the frequency of school shootings, and if one should happen, these measures might stop the carnage sooner, saving lives.

Trump says the single most important step to be taken is the hardening of targets.

In today’s world, schools are gun-free zones. If a mentally ill student pulls out a firearm in a classroom or a crowded cafeteria, he can continue shooting until the police arrive which would take several minutes at least or until he runs out of ammunition or is somehow subdued. In the meantime, the carnage can be catastrophic.

If, on the other hand, there were several armed adults present, a combination of armed policemen and faculty members with concealed carry permits, who could act quickly in the event of an emergency to protect students, the killing would be stopped much sooner, resulting in less loss of life.

I am not proposing that we train all teachers, against their will, to carry and operate a gun. But, in any random faculty, there are likely a number of people who are very comfortable around firearms and who may even own a gun for reasons ranging from self-defense to hunting. These are the individuals who should be issued concealed carry permits.

Moreover, the knowledge that there were armed adults on the premises, especially if a potential shooter was unaware of whom those adults were, might act as a deterrent to a potential shooter. This would go a long way toward reducing the frequency of these attacks or would shorten the attack if one were to occur.

In fact, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel announced this week that Broward County sheriff’s deputies would now be carrying AR-15 rifles on school grounds within the district.

Critics will point to Thursday’s new development that there was an armed deputy at the school on the day of the shooting. School Resource Officer Scot Peterson, who was armed, stood outside the school for four minutes as Nikolas Cruz continued his six-minute killing spree. He is now being called “The Coward of Broward County.”

Sheriff Israel told reporters that Peterson was in an office inside the school when the shooting began. Video then shows him taking up a defensive position outside, but never entering the building.

“He should have went in, addressed the killer, killed the killer,” Israel said.

Scot Peterson failed to act, possibly out of fear. However, the school’s security video was on a 20-minute delay, which helped no one considering Cruz’s entire shooting spree took six minutes. Peterson had no idea where in the building the shooter was. This is not an excuse. It was his duty to enter the building and locate the killer. But a “real-time” video would have been of significant help to law enforcement on that day.

The installation of metal detectors at access points to schools, bulletproof doors and windows, bulletproof backpacks may help. Bulletproof glass actually saved several students outside the building at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

And a high school student in Wisconsin has invented a device that makes it difficult to open a locked door.

“Unlike other products, JustinKase does not allow a door to open even a crack which means students & staff can remain safe while emergency personnel race to the scene,” said creator Justin Rivard, “a student at Somerset High School in Wisconsin. You can lock a door with a lock, and it can get shot out. You can lock a door with this, and it can’t get shot out. You can’t get around it.”

Asking Americans to abandon their Second Amendment right to bear arms is not an answer. Guns are here to stay. A nationwide confiscation of firearms would not only be unconstitutional, it would be unfeasible. There are far too many guns in circulation today for the government to possibly round them all up. If this were tried, “bad guys” would surely not turn in their guns, and the law-abiding citizens who did would be left defenseless and vulnerable.

All Americans, including politicians from both parties, parents and the press, need to realize that we are working toward the same goal, which is to reduce the number of school shootings. This can be accomplished without an attack our Constitution.
