From Orlando to Charleston -- Witnesses ‘Smell the Blood’

New information on “the worst mass shooting in U.S. history” reveals a complex and confusing scenario at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando during the three hours of the “shooting” and its aftermath. The official story – or perhaps one should say stories – is a fragmented narrative composed of bits and pieces, consisting of interviews of “survivors” and “witnesses,” cell phone videos supposedly taken inside the club, news footage, and pronouncements by various officials. Added to this are the texts and phone calls allegedly made by Omar Mateen, the “shooter,” along with statements given by his father and wives, past and present.
Leaving aside the ludicrous idea that Mateen phoned 911 three times while he was killing people, and also called News 13 TV as well as “a friend,” at the same time as he was texting his wife and searching on Facebook – the various parts of the Orlando story just don’t add up.[1]
As with other recent “mass shootings,” there is a pronounced lack of evidence that a “massacre” actually took place – no bodies, no frantic attempts to save anyone at the scene, and no ambulances rushing people to the hospital, although 53 people were said to have been injured. Notably, there is no blood. But this does not present a problem for the official story, as numerous witnesses have attested to a huge amount of blood everywhere inside the club and covering all those who were shot. The use of the “blood” meme for the “Pulse” shooting is positively Satanic.

One of the witnesses describing the blood bath is Christopher Hansen, who claims to have helped several injured people – including a man who was shot in the back, whom he supposedly hoisted over his shoulder and carried. Hansen gave many interviews to the media while the shooting was still in progress, and more after the fact.
He says he crawled out of the club, drink still in hand, crawling over many bloody bodies, finally making it out and into the street. According to Hansen, there was:
… blood spattering – I didn’t know if it was mine or somebody else’s, but when I got out I realized it wasn’t mine – it was somebody else’s. The person I was with was shot in the back – I had to take my bandana off and tie it up…He was bleeding so bad his whole pant leg was red, and it was so soaked…my hands were just covered…[2]
But Hansen’s on-camera presence shows no blood at all, with his clothes and hands virtually spotless. One wonders where and how he had a chance to clean up. A Facebook post by his father, Bill Hansen, confirmed that Christopher “helped so many people,” including two who were bleeding. And yet, there was no blood to be seen.[3]

Chris seems to be an actor, one of many at Orlando – seen playing a photographer in a promotional video for “Motivated Models,” a “boutique trade show modeling agency” of “competitive, college educated individuals…looking to help you reach your event goals.”[4]

Chris is not the only one who saw blood – a continual feature of the horrifying story. “Survivor” Miguel Leiva, who has also given many interviews, sat down with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on June 17 to chat about his experiences. Leiva is the one who supposedly took the video just released to the press, purporting to show a group of people holed up in a stall in the bathroom. Leiva not only saw the blood,he smelled it. According to his account:
I just remember, like, you can smell, like, the blood. There was so much blood, there was, like,  you could just smell it, and it’s like everywhere you lean, like all my clothes was full of blood…we were sitting down, and it was just like a huge puddle of blood, and after awhile when it started drying up, it just started, like to smell really bad…

According to Leiva, the gunman fired twice into the stall, where “there was about 17 of us” – but “only like five or six of us made it out.” The scene inside the bathroom stall is captured in Leiva’s video, said to be one of three he took – either to send to his girlfriend, or to tell the world what happened if the group didn’t survive.
Unfortunately for the official story, the “grainy cell phone video” doesn’t provide any real evidence, and certainly does not show the “huge puddle of blood” that Leiva describes.[6] However, since he smelled the blood, it must have been there, and we can all believe Leiva and Anderson Cooper.
Numerous Orlando doctors and medical staff are complicit, giving press conferences and interviews to detail the bloody carnage they supposedly saw. Drs. Matthew Lube, Michael Cheatham, Chadwick Smith, Joseph Ibrahim, William Havron, and Marc Levy sat down with Scott Pelley from CBS News for a televised conversation. In the presence of doctors and hospital staff, “survivor” Angel Colon, another staple on the interview circuit, recounted a medically impossible version of his injuries.[7] The fact that so many personnel have signed on does not inspire confidence in Florida’s medical establishment.

Bringing up the rear are Dr. Joshua Corsa’s bloody sneakers. Posted at his Facebook page, Corsa details the mess he encountered:
These are my work shoes from Saturday night…On these shoes, soaked between its fibers, is the blood of 54 innocent human beings…This blood, which poured out of those patients and soaked through my scrubs and shoes, will stain me forever. In these Rorschach patterns of red I will forever see their faces and the faces of those that gave everything they had in those dark hours…while I work I will continue to wear these shoes. And when the last patient leaves our hospital, I will take them off, and I will keep them in my office. I want to see them in front of me every time I go to work…I never want to forget that night.[8]

If one looks closely at Dr. Corsa’s sneakers, however, one sees only a small amount of red color, which may or may not be blood stains, and not “the blood of 54 innocent human beings” that had “soaked between its fibers.” The red bandages seen at left are certainly too bright for real blood – and look more like the red paint of the Boston Marathon “bombing.” BUT – if we can’t see what they say we should see, we can trust that they saw it – and smelled it – because otherwise there would be no evidence at all for the Orlando “shooting.”
The Orlando event coincided with the one-year anniversary of the Charleston Church “shooting,” where there is likewise no good evidence that a “massacre” occurred. Except, of course, for the body of the Reverend Clementa Pinckney, which lay in state at four separate venues before his burial on June 26, 2015.[9]

The blood meme is featured here too, with a horrific blood bath supposedly occurring in the church basement. Amazingly, only four days after the “slaughter,” the Emanuel A.M.E. Church opened its doors for its regular Sunday service, with no indication that a bio-hazard team was brought in for a clean-up. In fact, an NBC photo shows members of the church community pitching in to tidy up the site.[10]

The anniversary of the Charleston Church “shooting” elicited press coverage and television tributes.[11] The New York Times interviewed members of the families of the “victims,” many of whom said they forgave the “shooter,” Dylann Roof. Felicia Sanders, mother of victim Tywanza Sanders, alluded to the room in the basement, saying she was told at the time that the room “smells like blood.” Daniel Simmons, whose father was allegedly killed, said he didn’t think the church should have opened so soon: “When I went down to the church a couple of days after, I could still sense and smell blood.”[12] The shooting must therefore have occurred, and the smell proves it.
What a clever way to convince us that, despite the lack of physical evidence, all the “mass shootings” actually took place. Starting with Sandy Hook, the many horrifying “massacres” produced no torrent of blood – and no bio-hazard teams to clean it up.[13] As if to counter this deficit, the details are increasingly gruesome and graphic. With each new shooting we get more blood and gore, as though the worse the accounts of the witnesses, the more readily we will accept the story.

Even the call for blood donors in Orlando was macabre. People rushed to donate blood in such large numbers that the blood banks were filled to capacity, and donors were asked to return – but later.[14] The urge to donate blood was surpassed only by the urge to donate money, with the Pulse GoFundMe page tallying over $5 million from 110,000 people in five days – and this is only one funding venue. Finally, the “shooter,” Omar Mateen, allegedly gave blood on May 29, two weeks before his shooting rampage – in a bizarre twist – to a center that supposedly supplied blood to the victims.[15]
All of this enforces the idea that any of us could die at the hands of a domestic terrorist, or a racist, or a guy who hates gays – or is gay – or something. At any rate, we had better watch out, or we too could be victims of a hideous blood sacrifice.

NDAA 2017 Includes Draft for Women, Indefinite Detention of American Citizens

By Derrick Broze

The U.S. Congress has passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) 2017 with provisions that will force women to sign up for potential military draft and continues the practice of indefinite detention.
On Tuesday, the U.S. Senate approved a $602 billion annual defense budget that President Obama has promised to veto because the bill does not allow for the closing of the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Senate Bill 2943, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017, passed with a vote of 85 Senators in favor and 13 against.
Before the vote, Senator John McCain tweeted that “It’s never been more urgent to give our troops the resources they need to succeed.” The majority of Congress have no issue taking money from the American people and redistributing it to fund their empire. The conflict arises when lawmakers begin debating whose pet projects are going to get a boost. The major conflicts in passing the bill stemmed from various amendments dealing with how the military budget will be spent.
One issue the entire Congress seemed to agree on was voting against closing military bases around the world. While the Pentagon called for budget cuts stating that the military has more space than they need, Congress refused to go along with the cuts. “Besides, several lawmakers have argued that the Pentagon has cooked the books to justify its conclusions or at least didn’t do the math completely,” the Associated Press reports. The Senate also voted against an amendment to close the infamous military detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Another contentious area of debate was the mandate to force women who turn 18 on or after Jan. 1, 2018 to register for Selective Service. Males are already required register within 30 days of their 18th birthday. The United States has maintained a volunteer military force since 1973, but through Selective Service the military could reinstate a draft and call upon registered males and females. Those who do not register could face up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, although the penalty has rarely been enforced.
The most horrendous part of the NDAA 2017 is that that the annual military budget continues to include a provision which allows for indefinite detention of American citizens without a right to trial. Many of you may remember that President Obama had no problem signing the NDAA 2012 in 2011, which legalized the indefinite detention of American citizens suspected of ties to terrorism. The indefinite detention provision is still contained in the NDAA, and has been approved by Congress and signed by President Obama every year since it first passed.
On Thursday June 9, Senators Mike Lee of Utah, Rand Paul of Kentucky, and Dianne Feinstein of California spoke on the floor of the Senate in support of an amendment bill which would have removed the indefinite detention clause from NDAA 2017 and offered protections to American citizens weary of a federal government with too much power. The “Due Process Guarantee Amendment to the NDAA for Fiscal Year 2017” would have clarified “that an authorization to use military force, a declaration of war, or any similar authority shall not authorize the detention without charge or trial of a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States.”
“This amendment addresses a little known problem that I believe most Americans would be shocked to discover even exists,” Senator Mike Lee said from the floor of the U.S. Senate. “Under current law, the federal government has proclaimed the power, has arrogated to itself the power to detain indefinitely without charge or trial U.S. Citizens and lawful permanent residents who are apprehended on American soil. Let that sink in for just a minute.” Senator Lee also reminded the Congress that the last time the U.S. federal government detained Americans was the internment of Japanese Americans during the Second World War.
Senator Rand Paul noted that President Obama recognized the danger of granting the federal government the power to indefinitely detain Americans. Upon signing the bill in 2011 President Obama added a signing statement promising not to use the power. “He said, this is a terrible power and I promise never to use it. Any president who says a power is so terrible he’s not going to use it should not be on the books,” Paul stated. “Someday there will be someone in charge of the government that makes a grievous mistake, like rounding up the Japanese. So we have to be very, very careful about giving power to our government.”
Senator Feinstein, Paul, and Lee attempted to pass an earlier version of this amendment in the 2012 before the amendment was taken out of the NDAA. The dangerous language within the NDAA comes from Sections 1021 and 1022, which include language that allows the government to detain anyone so charged “without trial until the end of the hostilities.” Thankfully, localities and states like Virginia are fighting back against the NDAA’s indefinite detention clause.
Unfortunately, the federal government will continue to have the ability to indefinitely detain American citizens. This is especially worrisome going into 2017 when a new president, one who hasn’t promised not to detain you, will be claiming the Oval Office. What will he or she do with the power to indefinitely detain Americans? Only time will tell.
