Having recently appeared on a Vice Media video on Conspiracies and False Flags, I have been the focus of anger for so many people that were affected by the Marjory Stoneman Douglas School shooting. Although I can sincerely empathize with their feelings of grief and loss, it is still my hope that they can suspend that emotional trauma for a few minutes to explore and understand WHY so many people are questioning the validity of this event!
On Feb 14, 2018 I had just arrived home from being in Coral Springs, FL when I was tagged in a Facebook post on WSVN 7 live News that was covering the Parkland shooting! I immediately sat down at my desk to watch as events unfolded. A helicopter approached the school as officers hid behind their cars with rifles draw and pointed into a vast empty area. What were they going to shoot at? Cop cars were EVERYWHERE! Hundreds of them, it appeared. How did they all get there so quickly? Why do they need 200 cops to stop one guy? Why were they so very far away from the school if there was someone shooting inside?
The first thing that struck me as I watched the footage was that there were “victims” at the corner of Holmberg & Pine Island Rd. I stared intently to see if anyone was bleeding or appeared to be seriously injured! It was hard to see clearly, but I couldn’t see a single drop of blood! What could they be injured from? Gunshots? If so, how did they get all the way from the school to the corner which was over 200 yards away? Why did they go to that corner? Why didn’t the ambulance go closer to the school? Then they announced that the shooter was still at large! Suddenly dozens of kids begin to parade past the “injured victims” and ambulance workers who have by now loaded two kids into an ambulance. The children walking by seem disinterested in what’s going on by the ambulance. They keep their eyes forward or focused on their cell phones instead. That seemed odd to me since like many of us, I have been stuck in traffic for hours as a result of “rubber necking”. We always want to see what’s going on when somebody is injured!
As I watched the footage a Tweet from Coral Springs PD flashed on the screen. It says to avoid the area. It says it was tweeted at 11:34 AM. WTF? It was reported that several people had been shot in the school and that one man was shot out on Pine Island Rd. Supposedly the shooter had shot him from the roof of the building. That seemed to explain why these kids were injured out by the street. Perhaps they had been shot from the rooftop as well. That story changed and has never appeared since.
Then I start wondering WHY are these kids being evacuated when there is still a shooter on the loose? That seems to be a very dangerous idea! Immediately my curiosity is peaked! Is this yet ANOTHER staged shooting? Right here in my own backyard? Or was this some psycho on the loose who has a motive to kill his former classmates? I don’t know!
That is the premise that I must begin every investigation with. I simply don’t know what is happening in that school. I will need to assess and evaluate information as it is presented and see where it takes me. I will need to suspend my emotional attachment to the event and use my critical thinking to discern what seems to be legitimate!
This event is very close to home. I have long time friends that live there. My nephew graduated from that school in 2009. The shooter was later apprehended in the same development that my brother resides in. I have friends whose children go to that school! I need to be sensitive to their feelings as well.
I was amazed at how quickly they had identified the shooter. It seemed as if some of the students had suspected this kid of being potentially violent. The gunman, Nikolas Cruz, is apprehended over an hour later about 2 miles away from the school! How did he get so far away? How could he just walk out of the school? Cops were everywhere! Who is this kid and what is his motive ?
How did they get this picture? The story is that an off-duty Coconut Creek Police officer happened to see Nikolas walking along bout 2 miles from the school. Did he have a photographer in tow? Was there some random passerby ready to snap that picture on his Iphone at just the right moment? How could the cop know that this was Nikolas Cruz? The description that the police had been given by Kyle Lamar was that he was wearing jeans and a black hoodie.
Stacey Lippel described the shooter as a man dressed like a swat team officer!
Once again we have a “lone gunman” who has somehow procured multiple weapons and executed a bunch of people with military precision! How could he get into the school? How did he get to the school? How could he carry so much artillery without being noticed? These questions swirled through my head as I tried to make sense of it all.
Later that evening there are interviews with kids on the scene being broadcast on my television as the cry for increased gun control is already in full effect! I am in amazement as several of the kids claim that there were “multiple shooters”. One girl says that there were at least THREE!
Another girl claims that she was actually WITH Nikolas Cruz when she heard gunshots fired. She knew Nikolas couldn’t be the only gunman! She claimed to be a former student as was Nikolas Cruz. She had known him since middle school. Why were they there? My brother told me that it was “Former Student Day” and so they were allowed to visit the school. I’ve never heard of “Former Student Day”, and if it was “Former Student Day”, what are 19 year old kids doing walking alone in the Freshman Building? Surely that type of thing should be frowned upon.
I have watched her testimony many times and although some people claim she is just looking for attention, to me she seems to be truthful. Her expressions and demeanor seem typical of a normal high school girl from this area.
And, if we are to dismiss her testimony as just some ditzy girl looking for attention, what about KHOU reporter Matt Musil? Was he just being gullible? He seems to believe her 100%!
As more information and testimony of students is released, even more questions seem to arise! Some students report that they were expecting a Code Red Drill with police firing “blanks” to add realism to the event. Many of the kids claimed that they thought the whole event was just another drill. They had already had a fire drill that morning! Why on earth would they have a code red drill on “Former Student Day”?
Current student, Jalen Martin reported that the “Secret Service” had visited the school weeks prior, changing protocol on how to conduct an active shooter drill. Was this just another coincidence?
Cell phone video from inside the school seems to go viral amongst my daughter’s friends. She is 17 and is of course emotionally impacted by this traumatic event although she always remains slightly skeptical because of my influence. The cell phone video is of course very grainy as in all video released from these recent mass casualty events. In this day and age, we all have cellphones that have high quality recording capability, but for some reason it’s the person with the 2002 flip phone that captures the reality of the situation!
Still, for whatever reason, I am now somewhat concerned that a violent incident has occurred and I realize that I must proceed with the utmost caution and consideration to others!
It’s important that people don’t just immediately start crying “It’s a hoax”, before all evidence has been thoroughly researched. One of these days, people are going to call something a fabricated event and wind up losing whatever credibility they once had. I don’t think it’s a stretch of the imagination to believe that something like that is already planned.
People point out anomalies in the student cell phone videos. The laptop that has been “shot” appears to have bullet hole stickers instead of actual destruction, the “dead” person in the corner appears to be a dark skinned person although none of the victims are African American. Students reactions and behaviors are analyzed. I have to resort to the rationalization that I simply don’t know. I’m no expert in analyzing this video, so I must accept it at face value, for now.
The next major development in the Parkland School shooting involves the emergence of a central character named David Hogg. David is an effective orator from the drama club and journalism class from Stoneman Douglas and has released video that he made from inside the school during the actual shooting!
Here he interviews a fellow student about “gun control” while they are on lock-down due to an active shooter being in the school:
I don’t know about you, but if I was in that situation, the last thing I would be concerned with is getting anyone’s opinion on anything other than how to get the F out of there!!
There has been a lot of confusion over whether this girl is Alex View or Isabella Robinson. Oddly enough, Isabella Robinson was the focus of an Australian video journalist that spent years trying to locate the people on a picture that he found in the rubble on 9/11, 2001. It turned out to be Isabella Robinson and her mother! It really is a small world, huh?
David Hogg emerges as a spokesman for the entire Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school and immediately seizes on the gun control agenda. To me, this is Sandy Hook all over again! Normal people who have experienced a traumatic event do not become instantaneous political advocates!
Having had some experience with grief and loss, I can certainly attest to the fact that people do grieve differently, but for everyone it is still a process. It takes time to get over shock, sorrow, anger, and relief gradually leads to resilience. Nobody goes from pain to resilience in 24 hours. NOBODY! His aggressive tone raises a few eyebrows and people begin to look into this character. He is admittedly the son of a former FBI agent. He has recently moved from California to south Florida. He has recently attended the CNN studios (prior to the shooting). He has interviewed FL State Representative and gun control advocate Ted Deutch! This kid appears to have been politically connected even before his leap into the Parkland Shooting spotlight!
He becomes the focal point of the naysayers who claim that he is some sort of “Crisis Actor”. I would dispute that claim because in my opinion, a crisis actor is someone who performs the role of a victim in an exercise that is meant to seem realistic. An entire industry has evolved as a result of the idea that people need to be prepared for horrible, unforeseen tragedies that could impact us at any minute!
There is a great deal of speculation that David Hogg isn’t even really from Parkland. His parents just purchased a home there in August of 2017. Much of his background shows him to be from Redondo Beach CA and he even has a viral video that was made when he was there in 2016. It is somehow explained that he was on vacation and that he had lived there previously. Nevertheless, people were asking questions and accusing him of being disingenuous.
I’m not sure how important David Hogg is to this narrative, but I certainly find it noteworthy that his aunt is the Operations Chief of the Coral Springs Emergency Response Team. She herself has participated in mock mass casualty events. She is former military and DHS trained and would certainly be an ideal candidate to participate in a “training event”.
Interesting to note that her husband was employed by the FBI and stationed at LAX during the Los Angeles Airport shooting hoax and that Elaine was a participant in a Ft Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport Disaster Drill!
Here she is one day after the MSD shooting out on a boat. She appears to be celebrating a job well done!
Next we have the injured students who have appeared on the media to display their courage and resilience! Madeleine Wilford was shot multiple times in the ribs, lung, stomach, shoulder and arm!
Doctors are unsure how many bullets struck Madeleine Wilford’s body, but she sustained injuries to her ribs, right lung, stomach, shoulder and right arm, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
12 days later she is doing interviews and seems almost completely healed! This seems like an insult to our veterans who have been released from active duty after sustaining far less life threatening injuries. Look at how quickly she has recovered!
Samantha Grady suffered mere grazes by bullets because she was able to shield herself by using a small book. I’m not making this up!
Samantha Fuentes claims to have “shrapnel” embedded in her face from bullets that deflected off of her slain classmates. She also has wounds to her legs that have been treated with small bandages. Is this what gunshot wounds look like?
Kyle Laman was reportedly shot in the ankle, but somehow managed to walk down 3 flights of stairs before being transported on a gurney to a waiting ambulance. He appears to be talking on his cell phone as he is wheeled across the school grounds!
Kyle’s injuries are treated for a week in the hospital where he is interviewed and tells his miraculous story while smiling from ear to ear. In the video of his interview, his foot appears to be completely healed. There is no discoloration. If anyone has ever had a broken ankle you know that it will turn completely black and blue. Remarkably, Kyle has no toenails on his injured foot. It also appears as if he is capable of impossible contortions as his right leg appears on his left side while saying goodbye to his visitors! I’m not sure how anyone can simply explain this away!
WHERE ARE HIS TOENAILS?
It’s also noteworthy that Kyle receives a ride home from the hospital by the same first responders that rescued him. Is this some sort of new protocol, or is this the continued over dramatization of these heralded victims? He was also rescued from the school by an off duty Coral Springs cop who was luckily on scene watering the nearby baseball field!
As the event continued to unfold, many people awaited the release of Security camera video from inside the school. This would have been undeniable evidence that Nikolas Cruz was the perpetrator of this heinous crime and would immediately quell any suspicions of the general public. Instead, what we got was some unbelievable story of how the Security cameras were on a 20 minute delay which added to the confusion of officers on scene who were looking for the suspect who they thought was still in the school!
The Associated Press together with the Ft Lauderdale Sun Sentinel and the Miami Herald immediately file FOIA requests for the release of Security camera footage! The Broward County Sheriff’s Office was adamant about NOT releasing the footage. After a week long battle, a judge decided that the video should be released! What we got was 27 minutes of outside video that shows very little of anything at all. There is no evidence of an active shooter. There is no video of Nikolas Cruz entering the school. There is no evidence of a panicked response to a horrendous tragedy! There is absolutely nothing.
Nikolas Cruz appears in court and appears to be heavily medicated to the point where he can’t even hold his head up to face the judge. The judge immediately decides to seal the record meaning that the public will, once again, remain uninformed. What is going on in the Broward County Court system?
It’s important to note that Broward County is listed among the cities participating in Agenda 21. This is not “conspiracy theory”, this is a published fact:
The Hollywood/Ft Lauderdale Airport is currently doing a $3.2 Billion expansion. That’s right! BILLION with a B !!Much of that money comes from Federal Grants. Grants that you can be sure come with strings attached. Unless you think that anybody really gets “somethin’ fo nothin’” in this day and age!
It comes as no surprise that they would be willing to participate in an active shooter drill presented as areal time event known as the Ft Lauderdale Airport Shooting. You can bet that Sheriff Scott Israel is also salivating over all those Federal dollars rolling in!
In fact, it is due to some of the Broward Sheriff’s Office policies that someone like Nikolas was allowed to continue on his journey to destruction as the officers that encountered him 39 times previously were told NOT to arrest him. You see, the less crime in your district, the more effective your department is perceived by the Feds. The more effective police get the big Federal Dollars. Keep those crime stats down fellas and we can all get new patrol cars courtesy of the federal government!
I have friends that live here in Coral Springs and Parkland. The two cities are adjacent and the school serves both communities. One of my friends is neighbors with one of the victims. He assures me that this has been a genuine tragedy and that he offered his condolences to the mother of the victim who he lives near.
Still, his curiosity is peaked by the constant presence of David Hogg. He can’t understand why this kid is continually in the spotlight. I share some of the anomalies with my friend and he continues to hold on to the idea that there is absolutely nothing amiss, despite sensing that some things just don’t add up. He invites me to come to Parkland to travel the route of the shooter.
We visit his house where he stayed. It looks like a farmhouse with gasoline pumps in the front driveway. We then travel the 6.2 miles to the Dollar Tree where it is said that he rode his bicycle to work. It’s a very long ride on some dangerous streets including Loxahatchee Blvd which is heavily occupied by tractor trailers and has no sidewalks to ride on! No parent in their right mind would ever let his kid ride a bike on that road!
We go from the school to the Walmart where Nikolas went after shooting 34 victims.
We speak to the elderly security guard who tells us how he went to the Subway (which is inside the store) and bought a coke and then sat on a bench with an employee from the optical department. “Was he sweating and nervous?”, I asked her. “No”, she replied, “he was calm and acted normal”.
The man from the optical department asked him what was going on at the school and Nikolas replied: “I dunno, some sort of shooting or something”.
There were hundreds of kids herded into the Walmart which was then put on lock-down until two hours later when the children were ushered a few at a time to be re-united with their panicked parents several hundred yards away.
Next we traced his path from the Walmart to the point where he was apprehended about 1.6 miles away. He reportedly stopped at McDonald’s to have a burger. I guess he was hungry, but I’m not sure I could eat after murdering a bunch of people. I’m also not sure how Nikolas was able to just walk out of the Walmart which was on lock-down. I wonder where he was headed as he lived to the north but was apprehended walking to the south and west. He had walked a long way.
So, these are real people affected by a genuine tragedy. It’s not some fictitious town that has some closed down school that was used as a prop. I live here! These are practically my neighbors- and I care about them deeply! But, there are so many unanswered questions that I feel it is my duty to try to investigate further. I mean, if my child had been in that school, I would be screaming at the top of my lungs:
“WHY WERE NO FIRST MEDICAL RESPONDERS ALLOWED INSIDE?”
“WHERE’S THE GOD DAMNED SURVEILLANCE FOOTAGE OF THIS KID?”
“WHY ISN’T JAMES SNEAD UNDER ARREST FOR LETTING THIS KID HAVE GUNS?”
“WHY DID POLICE WAIT OUTSIDE WHILE KIDS WERE BEING MURDERED?”
Instead, we have Andrew Pollack who has immediately turned his attention to increased school security. “This is the last one!” he has stated over and over, as if he has the ability to stop something like this from ever happening again.
“Airports have metal detectors, courthouses have metal detectors, public offices have metal detectors, why don’t our schools have metal detectors?”
Well, even if our schools had metal detectors, it wouldn’t have deterred Nikolas Cruz. He came in through a side door supposedly. It wouldn’t have stopped Adam Lanza either, as he supposedly shot out the front window of the school to gain access. But, metal detectors like the ones we have in airports are certainly a profitable venture for the people that make them! In Israel everywhere you go there are those body scanners. At the mall, the movies, even the grocery store. In the Phillipines as well. Is that how we’re going to live? Isn’t that in itself a form of “terrorism”? To have to live as though your life is in danger everywhere you go?
This video ponders the idea that the Las Vegas shooting was also intended to be instrumental in creating a cry for installing these body scanners!
I met Andrew Pollack at his 4,800 sq ft estate as he pontificated the important changes he intended to make with the help of all of the governors from each and every state. I was impressed at how quickly he had gone from grieving father to political advocate and was already appearing on Television next to Donald Trump and doing photo shoots with Governor Rick Scott and having State Representative Ted Deutch as a house guest.
It seemed to so heavily contrast what I had experienced when my brother lost his 22 year old son. My brother was so devastated that he couldn’t even speak to anyone for over 6 months. Even now, nearly 5 years later, he gets choked up at the thought of it. He can’t understand how easily these people have pushed through the grieving process either. He doesn’t want to think about it. It’s just too disturbing. And besides, what can anybody do about it?
As the Marjory Stoneman Douglas GoFundMe account now tops $6,000,000 we are left to wonder what will they do with all that money?
Each and every victim has at least one GoFundMe account as well. Governor Rick Scott has allocated $400,000,000 to improve mental health services, change gun laws, and to rebuild the school building that they decided to tear down within days of the shooting.
This was eerily reminiscent of what happened in Sandy Hook where they destroyed the entire school and the shooter’s home as well! They then built a new school with a Federal grant for $53,000,000!
The FL Attorney General Pam Bondi decided to pay for ALL of the funerals of the victims at the school!
The students themselves then somehow raised over $3.5 million for their March for Our Lives campaign! https://www.gofundme.com/8psm8-march-for-our-lives
Where does all this money come from? And where does it go? $3.5 million is a lot of dough. Enough to pay every single attendant at the March over $100 each.
Since I have spoken out about my views on that Vice Media video, I have been inundated with hateful messages from people all over the world! Many have said things like:
“Hope your child gets killed in a school shooting so you know how it feels!”
“You need to seek mental help!”
“Why are you torturing these poor families and adding to their grief?”
I certainly have my regrets regarding participating in that Vice interview. They assured me and others that they were doing an “impartial” documentary on “Conspiracies and False Flags”. I should have known better. But, I have never been one to back down from expressing my viewpoints, so I suppose I am now faced with the challenge of defending them !
I will end this now, although I think I could write an entire book explaining why I have my doubts about the validity of the claim that Nikolas Cruz massacred 17 people on Valentine’s Day in 2018. I think that anyone who examines the evidence that I have presented here should certainly have some doubt in their mind. But, why should anyone care that they are being deceived?
Society does not evolve through coincidence and happenstance. Society is engineered. We are taught what to believe and how we should feel from a very early age. Long ago it was learned that it is much easier to manipulate a population through the dissemination oif information than to have to resort to brute force. Wars are less likely to be fought on the battlefield than they are to be fought with propaganda.
Groups such as the Tavistock Group, the Bilderberg Group, The Council on Foreign Relations, and the United Nations meet regularly to discuss and devise the means necessary to steer public consciousness. The media is their primary tool. People are subjected to massive amounts of information. News media has been our main source of learning about the world around us for decades if not centuries. We want to know what’s happening in our world. We share our thoughts and ideas with others in conversation.
Our First Amendment was designed with the idea in mind that if we granted freedom of the press to everyone that they, in turn, would hold the government accountable for their actions. I don’t think it was ever realized that as technology advanced and corporate powers grew, the media could be wholly owned and operated by the powers it was intended to regulate. But, as we all know, a mere 6 corporations now control 95% of all Radio, Television and Newspaper companies. There is a monopoly on what the public is allowed to know as they misconstrue any dissenting viewpoints by calling them “Fake News”!
In fact, I think that part of what we are seeing with the glaring anomalies in some of these shocking news stories are intended to create controversy as alternative media journalists such as myself offer contradicting analysis to what the mainstream talking heads are saying. The internet has allowed almost anyone to voice their opinion and have it heard by hundreds and sometimes thousands of people. This can be problematic for a state run propaganda outlet such as CNN. They don’t want to be challenged by intelligent inquiry or forced to substantiate their sometimes ridiculous claims. Indeed I think it is factual to say that Alternative Media has become the number one enemy of the state and that’s why we have seen such a drastic increase in censorship over the past 5 years. Perhaps millions of YouTube videos have been removed for “bullying”, or “violating our terms of service” without explanation or any means of recourse. We have come to a point where if you make a Facebook Post that doesn’t fall in line with a Liberal Agenda, your post will be removed and your account can be terminated.
How did it get like this? What kind of world are we leaving for our children?
Perhaps it got like this because too many of us felt that it was up to someone else to do something. Perhaps we believed in the political system and felt that the majority of people want it this way, so it must be correct. Perhaps we are just too busy trying to make ends meet and take care of our families and enjoy what time we have to ourselves. But, make no mistake about it, this is OUR WORLD and we have a responsibility to stand up for what we believe in!
We have a responsibility to demand TRUTH from our media and from our government! I will not shut up and be quiet and just conform to the popular opinion. I have a right to have my voice heard! And so do you!
I will end with this comment from a fellow researcher because I think he has summed up the Sandy Hook event with a clear observation that can also be applied to the event that took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas.
For me there is no real proof anywhere it was a hoax, proof that is iron-clad per se, it is the massive cumulative effect of incredulous uncertainty in reports by all entities involved, it is the continual and pervasive contradictions at every level of the “story” that prove to me beyond any doubt that it was a hoax planned and executed in such a manner as to introduce as many contradictions as possible. The government, unable to create a perfect hoax, created an imperfect hoax with many, many layers of contradiction, and the belief of the entire event rests upon the willingness of the viewer to detach from reality and join in a deep seated psychosis, a total break from any critical reality they might hope to enjoy. It’s much easier to believe that the children died a horrible death, than to believe that a massive government would pull off this type of hoax and multi-million dollar fraud.
People want to believe in death, destruction, horror and wretchedness, because the alternative, that the government is totally and completely corrupt, that cannot be entertained by the masses, otherwise, they would have to rise up and destroy the government, and they do not have the will, nor the courage to do so!

Over the past several years certain certain US mass shootings receive round-the-clock coverage yet often possess curious features which are ignored and merely accepted “as reported” by less-than-trustworthy corporate media. Bizarre circumstance and the sometimes inexplicable actions of officials, victims, eyewitnesses and would-be culprits give rise to concern that government agencies and news media act in certain ways to embellish some incidents while short-circuiting the dissemination of vital information.
By IMS Staff
In January 2016, Florida Atlantic University (FAU) wrongfully terminated Professor James Tracy, a fully tenured professor as a retaliatory measure for questioning details of the Sandy Hook shooting event. FAU breached their contract and conspired against a man for merely exercising his constitutionally protected right to free speech on his personal blog. Their acts effectively destroyed his academic career.
