Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) threatens to nuke gun-confiscation resisters

Rep. Eric Swalwell, 38, is a California Demonrat who represents east Alameda County in the San Francisco Bay Area.



In a May 3, 2018 USA Today op/ed entitled, “Ban assault weapons, buy them back, go after resisters,” Swalwell said he and other Democrats had been too deferential to Second Amendment activists and should follow the lead of teenage “survivors” of the Parkland school shooting who have been more strident.

Swalwell proposed outlawing and confiscating all “military-style semiautomatic assault weapons”. Existing owners of semiautomatic rfiles would be forced to sell their weapons or face prosecution because merely banning assault weapons would still “leave millions of assault weapons in our communities for decades to come.”

Townhall‘s Katie Pavlich points out that “assault rifle” is a politically loaded, misleading term used by the Left to demonize semi-automatic rifles, and that what Swalwell wants to confiscate is “In other words, every rifle in America.”

Responding to Swalwell’s gun ban and confiscation proposal, former InfoWars reporter Joe Biggs @Rambobiggs tweeted:
So basically @RepSwalwell wants a war. Because that’s what you would get. You’re outta your fucking mind if you think I’ll give up my rights and give the gov all the power.
To which Swalwell tweeted this threat:
And it would be a short war my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit. I’m sure if we talked we could find common ground to protect our families and communities.
Biggs tweeted back:
So our government would nuke its own country in order to take guns? Wow
So did other tweeters:
@KGamecock: “‘We can nuke you but hey, let’s find common ground’ – A sitting US Representative. That’s almost as laughable as your wikipedia photo. Stay in California Eric.” 
@Elm 335: “You really just threatened to use nukes on our citizens and can’t understand why we don’t trust the government enough to give up our 2nd amendment rights?!”
Like other Demonrats who’ve issued threats, when confronted Swalwell calls his threat mere sarcasm:
it’s sarcasm. He said he’s going to war with America if gun legislation was passed. I told him his government has nukes. God forbid we use sarcasm
He then portrays himself as the innocent victim:
America’s gun debate in one thread.
1) I propose a buy-back of assault weapons
2) Gun owner says he’ll go to war with USA if that happens
3) I sarcastically point out USA isn’t losing to his assault weapon (it’s not the 18th Century)
4) I’m called a tyrant
Swalwell also calls Biggs and other pro-Second Amendment Americans “gun trolls” whom he’s bravely taken on “to protect kids from being slaughtered in class”.

Elected to the House of Representatives in November 2012, Swalwell is a strong supporter of abortion and LGBTs. He has been mentioned as a potential 2020 presidential candidate and has publicly expressed an interest in running.

Eric Swalwell is precisely the sort of politicians about whom Thomas Jefferson had warned.

Painting of Archangel Michael weeps

There is a very old icon or painting of St. Michael the Archangel in the Sacred Church of the Archangel Michael at the Old Cemetery of Ialyssos in Rhodes, Greece.

The church is Greek Orthodox.

 The painting dates to 1896.

 Beginning in 2013, the painting weeps.
 
John Sanidopoulos reports, Oct. 27, 2013:
The [Orthodox] Metropolitan, after indeed verifying there were what looked like tears on the face of the Archangel, asked for the icon to be moved from the place it was hanging. They then examined the back side of the icon as well as the wall on which it rested to determine if there was moisture which passed on to the icon.
Having established that this was impossible, the Metropolitan of Rhodes testified that this was in fact a miracle, and he asked that the icon be brought to the Sacred Church of the Dormition of the Theotokos in Ialyssos for public veneration, as well as to see if a change in environment would halt the phenomenon. "We will move it to the big church to see how the phenomenon evolves," Metropolitan Kyrillos told the faithful who had gathered in the small chapel.”

Deception: NGO coaches migrants how to pretend to be Christian refugees to gain political asylum

The European Asylum Support Office (EASO) is an European Union agency created in 2010 to improve protection for asylum seekers and to coordinate EU Member States on political asylum. The agency has a process to identify real refugees among the hordes trying to legally migrate to Europe.
Ariel Ricker is the founder and executive director of Advocates Abroad (AA), an NGO (non-governmental organization) founded in Febrary 2016 in Northern Greece. AA’s 380 advocates provide legal aid to refugees and migrants seeking political asylum in Europe, as well as prepare them for their asylum interviews. Recently, University of Cambridge students and 12 British MPs helped raise more than $60,000 for AA.
Lauren Southern is a remarkable 23-year-old Canadian woman and political activist who is the founder of the “Borderless” documentary project on the European migrant/refugee crisis.
George, a producer of “Borderless,” went undercover and took a video of Ricker describing how she and other “refugee advocates” coach migrants on how to pretend to be Christian refugees. Ricker reveals that her organisation, Advocates Abroad, has studied transcripts of asylum interviews so as to generate stock answers to key interview questions for asylum seekers to use. Advocates Abroad teaches applicants to simulate emotions like crying, in order to appear sympathetic, and to display certain refugee characteristics asylum officers are trained to look for, including how to pray as a Christian.
In the undercover video, beginning at around the 2:26 mark, Ricker describes how migrants are coached to fool EU asylum officers into thinking they are genuine refugees:
Ricker: “So we teach them how to, like, literally [feigns being emotionally overwraught; deep sigh], sometimes as simple as this, and then how to tell their story, how to frame it, how to literally explain it, and how to keep their private emotions and their private trauma private, because all this acting is a shield.”
George: “Do you have to coach people on, like, physicality?”
Ricker: “Yeah, I see it like, um, I tell them that this is, um, acting, all of this is acting, it’s all acting, as though this is theater. So, for them to get through, they must act their part in the theater, and that [their part] is the refugee in trauma, because these EASO (European Asylum Support Office) officers are so fucking stupid, all they know is what’s written on the paper EASO says this is refugee in trauma, they have these characteristics. So we coach people how to have these characteristics.”
Beg. at 3:44 mark:
Rickers: “There’s a formula we came up with, which is ironic because I suck at formulas. But it’s [the formula] like significant event, date, and location . . . answer all the questions the same way. [As an example, the migrant should say] in December 2017, in Izmir, Turkey, I was threatened for being a Christian because my boss and his friends jumped me when I was leaving my church. This is the Bible they tried to tear up. This is the crucifix I was wearing that they tried to tear, and it made me feel unsafe as a Christian in Turkey. Baboom. And that way you’ve had the event, the date and the location. So you’ve given them a very specific answer, and you’ve kept it in a tight, short answer as well, rather than rambling about . . . and it’s much harder to refute because you have all the elements in there. So like our narrative timeline format, like, has a fill-in-the-blanks section at this point, and then we have, like, two examples for home country being significant danger in that location, and then ditto for Turkey. So consistency is the most important thing, even if you find yourself in a position where you have to lie, because you suddenly remembered something else. It’s best just to stick with what you said.”
Beg. at 5:40 mark:
Ricker: “They put in the decision whether or not you were acting with emotion, so you have to be, like [feigns sighing and crying], or crying, or stopping, or throwing up, or asking for a break. So it’s, um, it’s becoming an actor.”
Man: “You have to tell people to ask to take a break?”
Ricker: “Oh, we do. We actually do role play. So we prepare them a folder. So, like, the first roleplaying activity we do is, like, us being them, and they’re the officer, and then we flip around after they’ve had some practice, to see how should I walk into the office, how should I introduce myself, how should I give them the folder, and then how do I sit down, and then when do I stand up, when do I show them how to pray.”
Man: “Why would you need to show them how you pray?”
Ricker: “Because it’s a good way to show honesty. This is done in other places too, like, uh, not good places, to see if you’re truly what you say you are. If you can’t show how you pray….”
Man: “If you’re actually a Christian?”
Ricker: “Mmm.”
Man: “Oh, so if you’re saying that you’re fleeing persecution….”
Ricker: “Then you should probably know how to be, you know, praying that way. They also ask, like, what’s your favorite holiday? So, like, some people just say, like, Christmas. But, like, we explain you can’t just say this because this is not a sufficient answer. You have to say, uh, and you have to say this a certain way, which is, like, December 25th, which is Christmas, which is the birthday of our Lord and Savior.
Lauren Southern says that some of the “migrants” whom Advocates Abroad is teaching how to pretend to be “refugees” are wealthy Muslims who are not being persecuted, as well as criminals and ISIS terrorists.
Watch the video on Bitchute.
According to Borderless:
In an official statement, UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) said it was ‘alarmed by these reports’ while the Sturm College of Law, a University of Denver school listed as a partner on the Advocates Abroad website, responded to say it was ‘shocked and repulsed’ by the comments made by Ms. Ricker and that the university has no official affiliation with the organisation and its students will not continue to work with Advocates Abroad.

Americans turn against the biased Hate America Media (HAM) with open hostility

Americans already distrust the mainstream media (MSM). A January 16, 2018 Gallup Poll found that distrust of the news media has soared in recent decades, from 25% of U.S. adults in 1989 to 45% today saying there was a great deal of political bias in news coverage. 66% of Americans say that news media “do not do a good job” of “separating fact from opinion” (86% of Republicans; 44% of Democrats).
And no wonder.
Did you know that a study by Indiana University professors Lars Willnat and David H. Weaver found that in 2013, only 7.1% of full-time U.S. journalists identified themselves as Republicans? In fact, the percentage of Republican journalists continues to decline — from 25.7% in 1971, to 18.8% in 1982, to 16.4% in 1992, to 7.1% by 2013. No doubt the percentage is even less than 7.1% in 2018.
With the lawful election of Donald Trump to the presidency, the MSM have gone insane with vitriol and hate, showing that they really are the Hate America Media (HAM).
Here’s an example: a cartoon by New York Times editorial cartoonist Patrick Chappette, portraying U.S. soldiers’ mission as that of fighting Israel’s wars in the Middle East, and the soldiers refusing to defend America’s southern border against the impending invasion of thousands of “caravan migrants”.
No longer covert and sneaky, the Hate America Media have abandoned all pretenses at journalistic objectivity. An example of the HAM’s declaration of open warfare against Trump and his millions of “deplorable” supporters is the editorial board of the New York Times urging Democrats to go to war against a sitting President of the United States by deploying violent and unscrupulous “Godfather” mafia tactics.
Now, the American people are fighting back against the Hate America Media with open hostility, threats, and even physical attacks.
David Bauder reports for the Associated Press, October 29, 2018, that journalist associations are dispensing advice on safety and self-defense tips because of increasing anti-press incidents. The Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) advise reporters to avoid one-person news crews; the National Press Photographers Association is developing workshops on safety. Chris Post, a photographer for WFMZ-TV in Allentown, Pennsylvania, said: “The environment has changed. I’ve witnessed the transition.”
The RTDNA has begun compiling anti-press incidents that it self-righteously calls the “press freedom tracker”. Last year, the first time a count was kept, there were 48 incidents. The count so far this year is 39 incidents of journalists being attacked in the United States, including:
  • The June 28 shooting at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland, where five people were killed.
  • In October, an intruder was shot after kicking down glass doors at Fox’s local station in Washington, DC.
  • In Dallas, Texas, a man purposely crashed a pick-up truck into the side of a TV station.
  • In Miami, a reporter and a photographer were physically attacked while doing a live shot.
  • In North Carolina, a news crew had its power cable cut while covering a demonstration.
  • CNN correspondent Jim Acosta — who is barred from the White Housefor being rude, combative, and assaulting a White House intern by putting his hand on her arm to stop her from doing her job — has been the target of chants and epithets when covering Trump rallies, including one recently where a man looked at him and made a motion like he was slitting a throat.
  • When WFMZ-TV photographer Chris Post arrived to cover an immigration rally, a man in a car asked him where he was going. Told it was a pro-immigration rally, the man became agitated and stepped on his accelerator, stopping just short of hitting Post. On the same day, a man shouted “fake news” at Post while driving by in a pick-up truck. Post said, “I’m 6-foot-5, 300 pounds. I’ve had somebody try to grab my camera. When it gets to that point, where does it stop? It’s a tough time to be a journalist.” But Post also had an experience while driving through a fast-food pickup line that gave him hope. He was handed a cup of coffee and told the woman in line ahead of him had bought it, wanting to pass along the message “thank you for what you do.”
  • Caitlin Penna, a freelance photographer from Durham, N.C., said she constantly has her guard up on assignments. Even her conservative family is suspicious of her. “I’m pretty sure my grandmother thinks I’m this far-left liberal because of the things I cover,” she said. One night she was unwinding at a local bar and struck up a conversation with a man nearby. When she discussed what she did, the man said, “you report fake news” and walked away.
  • Nic Coury, a freelance photographer who works in California’s affluent Monterey County, said: “Since the election, people are emboldened more.” Coury has been called part of the liberal scum media, an enemy of the state and told he and his colleagues lie all the time. When conservative Arizona politician and law enforcement officer Joe Arpaio made a local appearance, “it was like walking into the dragon’s lair.”
Some journalists are quitting because of the hostility. The hostility she’s felt from the public recently was one of the reasons why Los Angeles KNBC-TV news photographer Lori Bentley-Law decided to quit the business after 24 years.
In her blog post explaining why she was leaving, like other journalists such as Acosta who are devoid of introspection, Bentley-Law blames public hostility entirely on President Trump, as if his supporters are brain-dead zombies who can’t and don’t think on their own. She whined that when a president describes the press as enemies of the people, “attitudes shift and the field crews get the brunt of the abuse. And it’s not just from one side. We get it all the way around, pretty much on a daily basis.”
She says that although there are other factors that contributed to her desire to leave, including shoulder woes from carrying heavy equipment for many years and a constant diet of murders and other depressing story assignments, the current environment is definitely part of it. One recent day, a person in a Mercedes prevented her KNBC news van from getting off a highway until several exits beyond her destination. On another occasion, a man stuck his bare butt out the window and defecated. Bentley-Law wrote:
“I don’t want to be immersed in sadness every day. I don’t ever want a cute little girl in pigtails to look up at me and say, ‘We hate you.’ I don’t want to hear ‘fake news’ shouted at me anymore, or to be flipped off while driving my news van.”
Bentley-Law was flooded with texts and emails from frustrated journalists across the country who’d read her blog. Declining to be interviewed, Bentley-Law said via email: “I suppose my experience isn’t unique and certainly resonated.”

Liberal Intolerance: Homosexual parents throw son out for his MAGA hat

A cell-phone video has surfaced, uploaded to YouTube on November 10, 2018, taken with a cell phone, of a pair of male homosexuals screaming and castigating their son, Max, for having a Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat.

https://youtu.be/zogoP64ZIXc

The video begins with Max asking his dads, "Can you give me my hat."

One of the men, in a blue robe, says: "60 million people were killed in the last century because of shit like this, okay?"

Another man's raised voice says: "Listen to me, you do not wear this in my house...you do not, in my house! ... Get out!"

Man #1: "You know why I'm upset?"

Son, in an orange t-shirt: "Can I have that?"

Man #1: "You've lost your mind. This is not a political view, this is hate. You do not wear this ... you do not wear it, Max."

Man #2: "Get out!"

The dads scuffle with their son.

Man #2: "Get out of this house! Get out!:

Son: "You guys are crazy."

Man #1: "You're 22 years old, what do you know."

Son: "You guys are crazy ... You don't know she goes to Sadie's place ... abusive...."

Man #2: "Get out! Go! and don't be surprised when they win this ...."

The video ends with the son leaving and the front door closing.

Racial, gender, age, education and religious differences in 2018 midterm elections

Using exit poll data by the National Election Pool, as reported by CNN, Pew Research Center determined that "The stark demographic and educational divisions that have come to define American politics were clearly evident in voting preferences in the 2018 congressional elections."

Reporting for Pew on November 8, 2018, Alec Tyson describes those divisions:


  • Nationally, voters favored Democratic candidates for Congress over Republican candidates by a margin of about 7%.
  • Gender: Women generally favored Democratic candidates by 19% (59% to 40%) while men voted for Republicans 51% to 47%. As was the case in the 2016 presidential election, white men voted Republican by a wide margin (60% to 39%) while white women were evenly divided (49% favored Democrats; 49% supported Republicans).
  • Race: Whereas Whites favored Republicans over Democrats by 54% vs. 44%, Blacks voted overwhelmingly (90%) for Democrats, including comparable shares of black men (88%) and black women (92%). Hispanics favored Democrats over Republicans 69% v. 29%. Asians favored Democrats over Republicans 77% v. 23%.
  • College education: When gender, race and education are considered together, women college graduates stand out for their strong preference for the Democratic candidate (59% favored the Democrat while just 39% voted Republican). Whites with less education – particularly men – supported the Republican. White men who do not have a college degree voted Republican by about two-to-one (66% to 32%).
  • Age: The age divide in voting, which barely existed in the early 2000s, also is large. Majorities of voters ages 18 to 29 (67%) and 30 to 44 (58%) favored the Democratic candidate. Voters ages 45 and older were divided (50% Republican, 49% Democrat).
  • Trump: The national exit poll found that more voters said their midterm vote was to oppose Trump (38%) than said it was to support him (26%); 33% said Trump was not a factor in their vote. The midterm vote also was highly correlated with views of Trump’s job performance: Among those who approved of the president (45% of all voters), 88% voted for the Republican. Among the larger share who disapproved (54%), an overwhelming percentage voted Democratic (90%).
  • Anti-White: Overall, 41% of voters said whites in the country today are favored over minorities; 19% said that minorities are favored over whites, while 33% said that no group is favored.  Among those who said whites are favored in the U.S., 87% voted for Democrats. By contrast, large majorities of those who said minorities are favored (85%) or that no group is favored (69%) voted for Republican candidates.
  • #MeToo: 72% of those who said sexual harassment it is a very serious problem supported Democratic candidates. Among those who said it was a somewhat serious problem, Republican candidates held a slim edge (50% vs. 48%). And while relatively few voters said sexual harassment is not too serious a problem (11%), this group voted overwhelmingly Republican (79% vs. 20%).


In a report on November 7, 2018, Pew Research found that "A preliminary analysis of the 2018 midterm elections finds considerable continuity from 2014 and 2010 in the voting patterns of several key religious groups":

  • Three-quarters (75%) of white voters who describe themselves as evangelical or born-again Christians (a group that includes Protestants, Catholics and members of other faiths) voted for Republican House candidates.
  • 7-in-10 no religions voted for the Democratic candidate in their congressional district.
  • 8-in-10 Jewish voters (79%) cast their ballots for Democrats.
  • This year, Catholic voters were evenly split between the parties: 50% favored the Democratic candidate for Congress in their district, while 49% favored the GOP’s nominee. In the past two midterm elections (2014 and 2010), however, Catholics had favored Republican candidates by margins of roughly 10%.
  • Among Protestants, 56% voted for Republican congressional candidates and 42% backed Democrats. 
  • Among those who identify with faiths other than Christianity and Judaism (including Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and many others), 73% voted for Democratic congressional candidates while 25% supported Republicans.
  • Church attendance: Voters who say they attend religious services at least once a week backed Republican candidates over Democrats in their congressional districts by an 18-point margin. Those who attend services less often tilted in favor of the Democratic Party, including two-thirds (68%) of those who say they never attend worship services.

Parkland Anomalies: David Hogg at home during school shooting; interviewed girl before shooting; and the 9/11 connection

This post was originally published yesterday on Fellowship of the Minds, which led to a Denial of Service attack by hundreds of thousands of hits from at least 703,000 IP addresses. The attacks overloaded FOTM's non-U.S. host server, resulting in intermittent outages of the blog.

The timing of the bot attacks suggests they are linked to this Parkland post. Someone doesn't want you to read the post. In the interest of freedom of speech and of thought, here is the post.
------------

If one part of an event is a lie, the whole event is contrived.

According to the timeline of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting on Wednesday, February 14, 2018, in Parkland, Florida:
  • 2:19 p.m.: An Uber driver dropped off Nikolas Cruz, 19, at the high school.
  • 2:21 p.m.: Cruz entered Building 12, armed with an AR-15 style semi-automatic rifle and several magazines. He activated a fire alarm and began shooting indiscriminately at students and teachers, killing 17 and wounding another 17. The shooting lasted 6 minutes.
  • 2:28 p.m.: Cruz got out and ran in the direction of tennis courts before going south, according to the sheriff’s office. At 2:29 p.m., he crossed a field and ran west, blending in with fleeing students. He walked to a Walmart, where he purchased a soda, then to a McDonald’s, from which he departed on foot at 3:01 p.m.
  • At about 3:40 p.m., Cruz was stopped by police 2 miles from the school and arrested without incident.
In a CBS interview with David Hogg, the reporter made clear Hogg was in the school when the shooting began. He hid in a closet, from which he reported live on the shooting, as well as interviewed other students.

Below is a screenshot of the CBS News video. Note the words at the bottom of the screen: “STUDENT INTERVIEWED CLASSMATES AS SHOTS RANG OUT”.

The video begins with the reporter saying this about Hogg:
He was in school when the shooting started. His father is a photog, FBI agent, so he [David Hogg] recognized immediately this was a gun, this wasn’t a cracker, this wasn’t a drill. His teacher ushered him into a closet as the shooting was taking place. He thought to himself, if he and his classmates die in this closet, what would their story be, what would we know about them? Here’s what he did.”
What follows, beginning at the 0:26 mark, is a dark screen and Hogg’s voice, presumably reporting from inside the closet. He whispers:
“It’s…Douglas School. There’s an active shooter; it’s not a drill…. It’s 2:52 (p.m.). I hear a gun, I hear a gun shot. We thought it’s a drill, but the super does not.”
Then a girl’s face appears in the dark:

Hogg’s voice asks: “So what’s your message?”

The girl answers:
“Um, I really don’t think there’s anything new to say, but there shouldn’t have to be because if you looked around this closet and saw everyone just hiding together you would know that this shouldn’t be happening anymore, and that it doesn’t deserve to happen anymore.”
The video then cuts away from the girl, still talking, to the CBS reporter resuming his interview with David Hogg.


Who was the girl? And what more did she say?

The video below is the rest of the story that CBS did not air.


The video begins with Hogg asking the girl, “So what’s your message?”, and the girl’s answer:
“Um, I really don’t think there’s anything new to say, but there shouldn’t have to be because if you looked around this closet and saw everyone just hiding together you would know that this shouldn’t be happening anymore, and that it doesn’t deserve to happen anymore. Uhm, and that’s that.”
At the 0:45 mark, Hogg identifies the girl as Alex Vieux. He says:
“This is Alex Vieux. This recording was taken at 9:32, February 14, 2018. Alex, are you okay with me recording this?”
Vieux replies:
“Yes, I am okay with you recording this. I personally have rallied for gun rights and less control, not necessarily less control, but this experience has definitely changed my viewpoint. I wanted to be an NRA member. I wanted to learn how to hunt. I was always fascinated by guns as a young girl. But this experience was so traumatizing to me to the point where now I can’t even fathom the idea of a gun in my house or on my body. I did have plans to go to Nexus gun range to learn how to shoot, but at this point I don’t want to even be behind a gun. I don’t want to be the person behind a bullet because I don’t want to be the person to point a bullet at someone. And to have the bullet pointed at me, my school, my classmates, my teachers, my mentors, it’s just, it’s definitely eye opening to the fact that we need more gun control in our country, because for this to happen, and for people to be so neutralized to it. I even texted my sisters, ‘Shooting at my school. I am safe.’ They both responded with, ‘Omg, lol, you’re funny.’ And that’s a problem in society and a bigger problem in America, and it needs to be fixed and I believe the most definite way to fix it is by changing our laws when it comes to gun ownership.”
Recall that when Hogg, hiding in the closet, began reporting live on the shooting, he said “It’s 2:52.” But according to the timeline of the shooting, it was over by 2:28 p.m.

Then, right after Hogg said “It’s 2:52,” he interviewed Alex Vieux and said: “This interview was taken at 9:32, February 14, 2018.”

How did Hogg go from being in the closet at 2:52 p.m. to interviewing Alex Vieux at 9:32 p.m. — all while the shooting was going on? That makes no sense. Why would Hogg and Vieux still be hiding in the closet at 9:32 p.m., long after the shooting had ended and the shooter arrested?

Or was it actually 9:32 a.m. on February 14, 2018, which would be nearly 5 hours before Nikolaus Cruz started shooting?

That makes no sense either. Why would Hogg interview Vieux in a closet about a shooting that hadn’t yet occurred?

As Harold Saive points out:
“When you listen to the dialog it’s clear the interview is said to be held while ‘hiding in this closet’…. No case can be made that the interviews were recorded at 9:32 at night since the students were not still hiding from the shooter 7 hours after the last shot was fired. All students had been evacuated, the scene locked-down and the shooter had long been in custody by 9:32 PM.”
The only way that one can make sense of the two discrepancies — (1) Hogg reporting on a live shooting at 2:52 p.m., 24 minutes after the shooting had stopped; and (2) Hogg interviewing Vieux at 9:32 p.m. — is that Hogg’s dramatic video footage in the closet actually took place on the morning of February 14, hours before Cruz allegedly entered Building 12 and shot 17 people dead.

As a matter of fact, there was a fire drill earlier that day in M.S. Douglas High School!

According to NBC News on February 14, 2018:
Jim Gard has been a math teacher for 36 years….
Gard’s math class at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, was just finishing up a review for a test Wednesday when “the fire alarm went off, which I thought was unusual because we’d just had a fire drill.
It wasn’t another fire drill, or even a fire. It was far, far worse. Authorities said Nikolas Cruz, a 19-year-old man who’d recently been expelled from the school, had returned to campus and opened fire with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle.
Not only was David Hogg not reporting live from the closet during the shooting, he wasn’t even in school at the time. This is his own testimony in a TV interview:
On the day of the shooting, I got my camera and got on my bike and ride as fast as I could three miles from my house to the school, to get as much video and get as many interviews as I could, ’cause I knew this could not be another mass shooting.”

The above video is a segment from the CBS News documentary, “39 Days“.

Hogg’s testimony that he was at home at the time of the shooting also raises this question: “Why was he at home on a school day?”

Maybe the answer is that David Hogg wasn’t/isn’t a student at M. S. Douglas High School.
What about Hogg’s interviewee, Alex Vieux?

Dr. James Tracy writes in his Memory Hole Blog post that when Hogg’s hiding-in-the-closet interview of Alex Vieux was aired later that day of the shooting, Vieux inexplicably became Isabelle Robinson:
This footage then oddly aired after the “live” Parkland incident that afternoon. To make matters more confusing, the individual goes by “Alex Vieux” in the morning, and “Isabelle Robinson” hours later as the same footage is widely broadcast in the aftermath of the event….
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel used a small part of the “Alex Vieux” interview footage in a February 15, 2018 video report (brief excerpt at 4:07 below), referring to the interview subject as “Isabelle Robinson.”

This is what Isabelle Robinson/Alex Vieux look like:


But wait!

There is another Isabelle Robinson, the daughter of a 9/11 survivor Jennifer Rothschild Robinson.

A heart-wrenching story, published in News.com.au on August 21, 2016, describes Australian photographer Nathan Edwards’ 15-year search for the woman and baby whose photograph he found in the rubble of the collapsed World Trade Center.



Jennifer Rothschild Robinson’s office at Ohrenstein & Brown was on the 86th floor of the North Tower. Luckily, she didn’t go to work that fateful day, September 11, 2001.

15 years later, photographer Nathan Edwards finally met the woman and baby in the photo. The baby, now 16, is named Isabelle Robinson. Below is a picture of Edwards’ happy reunion with Jennifer and her family in their home in Florida.



Doesn’t Isabelle Robinson, 16, look familiar?

Here’s a picture of Jennifer and Isabelle Robinson:



Let’s compare Isabelle Robinson/Alex Vieux with Isabelle Robinson, daughter of 9/11 survivor Jennifer Rothschild Robinson. If they’re the same person, Parkland Isabelle would be a 2-year older version of 9/11 Isabelle.


They sure look like the same person to me!

According to TruthFinder, Jennifer R. Robinson, 52, lives in Parkland, Florida. Her family members include husband Paul Robinson, 51; William Oliver Rothschild, 90; Elaine H. Rothschild, 86; William Edward Rothschild, 84; Ralph F. Rothschild, 74; and Andrew Bruce Rothschild, 55 — all of Parkland, Florida.

What a coinkidink! — A baby who survived 9/11 grew up to be a student who survived the school shooting in Parkland, Florida!



A big h/t to Tony Mead.
