Have just received the most extraordinary letter from the White House and no, I’m nothing special, you can sign up for these periodic missives from Obama’s spokeperson.
This one though takes the biscuit. Not reprinting the lot but will keep it on file. Suffice to say he was going on about two people – Alton Steel and Philando Castille.
All right, I know nothing about them but presume they were shot by police, it says in Louisiana and Minnesota. That one I should look into to see what it was about. Meanwhile, this has happened:
The gunfire broke out at around 20:45 local time on Thursday (01:45 GMT Friday).
The email to me said:
The White House <email@example.com> 03:54 (3 hours ago)
Just checked and there are 6 hours difference, but on local time there, the shooting was at 20.45 yesterday and the White House message was at 03.54 this morning. Let’s assume that that is our time, deduct 6 hours and it’s still 09.54 Dallas time, an hour after the shootings.
Here is the tone, by the way:
The most charitable thing to be said is that the wheels of the White House move very slowly. No one thought to get to that message and at least hold it, pending checking with POTUS.
What can one say?
It does illustrate, in general, what is going on over there and similar tricks are going on over here. Either it was a black or a leftist who did the sniping or else it was someone else and it is that which concerns me even more.
In Kiev, there was copious evidence of US presence through NATO in the firing on both sides on that Maidan march killing. Some people still can’t get through their heads that their govt. or rather arms of the govt have people who carry out acts against the people. There are too many cases coming through.
On top of that are all the anomalies such as Sandy Hook which were no way kosher in the way they happened. Every incident from WTC7 onwards is tainted or questionable on many levels. In fact, one can go back to JFK and the Warren Commission.
Point is, it does not take any tinfoilhatism, say on the RFK killing. It’s been shown by many sites quoting officers of the time and looking at it in detail that there was no way it happened as officially recorded.
And that’s where some of you and I part company, isn’t it? Because some of you believe no such thing would or could ever happen. If by that, we mean no way a govt officer would carry out an assassination of its own or someone else, then even if we accept that, where does that leave us?
It leaves us with a succession of one off people stepping up, doing the hit, dropping back again and the pattern is always the same. I’d accept that if there were no anomalies. That is, if there only ever was that one gunman, let alone how he got that close, and no one suggested anything otherwise, then OK.
But in all the major cases in the past few decades, there have always been great anomalies and strange behaviour from the authorities in response. It’s that which gets suspicion going. And that suspicion is not helped, is it, by the event playing straight into the hands of the policy the govt is trying to push at the time, from the Patriot Act to this disarming of citizens USA wide.
So let’s see how this one unfolds.
