We've seen this, obviously, in the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting, where police and the FBI repeatedly lied to the public about what really happened, then confiscated all photos and videos of the scene while scripting the public interviews of key witnesses (such as the security guard). In every such shooting event, the first priority of the media seems to be to control the narrative for political gain.
That's why it's crucial for intelligent people like us to ask these key questions about what's really happening. Below, I present a list of 10 crucial questions we should all ask as we watch the fake news media try to spin this event into a political narrative:
#1) Was there more than one shooter? As we've seen with the Las Vegas Mandalay Bay shooting, the existence of a second shooter is almost always covered up by the media and the FBI. The left-wing media almost universally tries to push the "lone gunman" theory in these shootings so that they can ignore the existence of organized terror cells. Although this particular shooting may indeed have been an actual lone gunman, you should always be highly suspicious of this explanation.
#2) Was it a false flag event? Was the shooter someone who was drugged, hypnotized and trained to carry out this act without the full consciousness of what he was actually doing? The Obama administration, in particular, ran numerous false flag shootings during his eight years in office. In the interests of pushing gun control, such events might still be running.
#3) Was the shooter on psychiatric drugs? Nearly all shootings over the last 20 years have involved shooters who were on psychiatric drugs.
#4) Were Obama administration leftovers involved in planning and carrying out this shooting? Never forget that Obama conspired with Eric Holder to run Operation Fast & Furious which deliberately sought to increase gun violence across America's southern states by putting guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels.
#5) Did the shooter shout anything before opening fire or while shooting? Many ISIS terrorists scream, "Allahu Akbar." However, in this case so far, there is not yet any indication that this involves an ISIS terrorist, although such links might still emerge. Notably, today is the 8th anniversary of the terrorist shooting at Ft. Hood. Is there a link?
#5) Was the weapon legally acquired, or was it illegally acquired? This answer makes a huge difference in the gun control debate. All the gun control in the world can't stop people from acquiring weapons illegally -- or modifying them into full auto configurations, for example -- since by definition they do not follow gun laws.
#6) Was there a political motivation to target Christians or conservatives? Yesterday, the nationwide Antifa protests turned out to be a total dud. It's not impossible to imagine a disgruntled Antifa terrorist seeking to murder a group of people that they perceive to be conservative Christians living in rural Texas. Again, we don't know the facts surrounding this shooting yet, but such a scenario isn't out of the realm of probability. Many people believe the Las Vegas shooting was carried out specifically to target country music fans, for example. And keep in mind that Christians are being slaughtered across the Middle East and around the world, due to the evil actions of anti-Christian terrorists and zealots.
#7) Did any member of the church know the shooter? If the shooter is known by the locals, it points toward a domestic dispute spilling out of control. But if no one knew the shooter, it points more in the direction of politically motivated (or racially motivated) terrorism.
#8) Was there a law enforcement training exercise scheduled in that area today? Many false flag shootings involve so-called "training exercises" that end up going live (because that's their actual purpose). How long was the police response time? Were any members of law enforcement running training exercises that included the region of the church?
#9) What made this shooter so angry in the first place? What were his motivations? How does someone absorb so much anger and evil that he would target a congregation of churchgoers to try to murder as many people as possible?
#10) Was this related to Antifa and the Left's ongoing war against churches, Christians and Texans in particular? This may not be the ultimate explanation, but given the vile, relentless attacks on Christianity being waged across the left-wing media, this motivation would not be at all surprising.
Join us in offering prayers to all those impacted by this senseless act of intense evil and violence. Stay tuned to this website for timely updates as the facts surrounding this tragedy unfold.

There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation.
In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.
Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
