Colorado Batman shooting shows
obvious signs of being staged
(NaturalNews) James Holmes, the Aurora, Colorado shooter who
reportedly opened fire at a Batman movie premiere, was a
medical student at the University of Colorado, pursuing a PhD
in neuroscience, reports ABC News.
As part of the attack, Holmes painted his hair red and referred
to himself as "The Joker," one of the arch enemies in the DC
Comics-inspired Batman movie series. (http://newyork.cbslocal.
According to news reports, this sudden violent rampage was
completely out of character for James Holmes, who was
described as "shy."
The New York Times is now reporting:
Billy Kromka, a pre-med student at the University of Colorado,
Boulder, worked with Mr. Holmes for three months last summer
as a research assistant in a lab of at the Anschutz Medical
Campus. Mr. Kromka said he was surprised to learn Mr.
was the shooting suspect. "It was just shocking, because
there was no way I thought he could have the capacity to
do commit an atrocity like this," he said. (http://www.nytimes.
"He spent much of his time immersed in the computer, often
participating in role-playing online games..."
There is already conjecture that James Holmes may have been
involved in mind-altering neuroscience research and
ended up becoming involved at a depth he never anticipated.
His actions clearly show a strange detachment from reality,
indicating he was not in his right mind. That can only typically
be accomplished through drugs, hypnosis or trauma (and
sometimes all three).
His behavior doesn't add upHis behavior already reveals stark inconsistencies that question
the mainstream explanation of events. For example, he opened
fire on innocent people but then calmly surrendered to police
without resistance. This is not consistent with the idea of "killing
Furthermore, he then admitted to police that his apartment was
booby-trapped with explosives. If you were really an evil-minded
Joker trying to kill people (including cops), why would you warn
them about the booby trap in advance? It doesn't add up.
"Holmes was taken into custody shortly after the shooting, police
said, adding he didn't resist when he was arrested," reports a
local CBS news affiliate (http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2012/07/20/
"After his arrest, Holmes told police about 'possible explosives
in his residence,' Oates said. When police searched his
apartment,they discovered it was booby-trapped and evacuated
surroundingbuildings, police said. Oates said bomb technicians
are determining how to disarm flammable or explosive material
in the third-floor apartment. He said police could be there some
None of this checks out. If you're a killer bent on causing
mayhem, why tell the police about your surprise bomb
waiting for them back at your apartment?
Holmes was clearly provided with
exotic gearContinuing from CBS:
"He said pictures from inside the apartment are fairly disturbing
and the devices look to be sophisticated, adding the booby-traps
were 'something I've never seen.' One rifle, two handguns, a
knife, a bullet proof vest, a ballistic helmet, a gas device, a
gas mask,military SWAT clothing and unidentified explosives
were also found in Holmes' car, a law enforcement source
told CBS News. Oates said Holmes wore a gas mask, a
ballistic helmet and vest as well as leg, groin and throat
protectors during the shooting."
In other words, this guy was equipped with exotic gear
by someone with connections to military equipment.
SWAT clothing, explosives, complex booby-traps... c'mon,
this isn't a "lone gunman." This is somebody who was
selected for a mission, given equipment to carry it out,
then somehow brainwashed into getting it done.
"Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said Holmes' apartment
is booby-trapped with a 'sophisticated' maze of flammable
devices. It could take hours or days for authorities to disarm it,"
reports Yahoo News (http://sg.sports.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/
UPDATE: (This section added to the story Saturday at 2:30 pm
central, July 21, 2012). It is now being reported that exotic,
advanced booby-traps have been disarmed at the apartment
of James Holmes. The Denver affiliate of CBS News is now
Officials say they have removed all major threats at the booby-
trapped apartment of the Aurora movie theater shooting suspect
on Saturday. They have used a robot to go inside James Holmes'
apartment. ...They were able to disable a trip wire that was
set to go off when the apartment door was opened. "This is
some serious stuff that our team is dealing with..."
Shortly before noon crews were successful performing a
controlled detonation... More controlled detonations were
...there were multiple trip wires throughout the apartment.
Investigators have also seen what appear to be mortars planted
in the apartment -- sort of the kind of mortars that might be seen
in a commercial fireworks show. Up to a half dozen of them are
...they have seen a number of inflated balloons in the apartment...
with many appearing to be filled with a powder. Also linked
together are bottles of liquid. ...a strong smell of gasoline
emanating from the apartment.
...several boxes on top of the refrigerator and there are lights
flashing on the boxes.
...30 aerial shells (fireworks) commercially legally available for
purchase. ...the suspect may have filled them with smokeless
powder. ...entering the apartment would have caused a trip
wire to trigger one liquid container to pour/mix with another.
When the two mix together, they set off the main charge of
the device which may be additional flammable liquids.
...an enormously dangerous mission. About 100 personnel
are on scene.
And the BBC is now reporting: (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/
Technicians made a first attempt on Friday to disarm the
traps, believed to include explosives, but withdrew when it
became clear the property was too dangerous to enter.
Sgt Carlson said the device was set up to detonate when
the first person entered the flat. "We've defeated first threat.
It was set up to kill, and that could have been police officers
or anything," she said.
FBI has a track record of staging
similar assaults, then stopping
them at the last minuteThis is not your run-of-the-mill crime of passion. It was
a carefully planned, heavily funded and technically
advanced attack. Who might be behind all this? The FBI,
of course, which has a long history of setting up and staging
similar attacks, then stopping them right before they happen.
See four documented stories on these facts:
As you soak all this in, remember that the FBI had admitted
to setting up terror plots, providing the weapons and gear,
staging the location of the bombings and even driving the
vehicles to pull it off! This is not a conspiracy theory, it's been
admitted by the FBI right out in the open. Even the New York
Times openly reports all this in stories like this one:
NYT: Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the F.B.I.(http://www.
THE United States has been narrowly saved from lethal terrorist
plots in recent years -- or so it has seemed. A would-be suicide
bomber was intercepted on his way to the Capitol; a scheme to
bomb synagogues and shoot Stinger missiles at military aircraft
was developed by men in Newburgh, N.Y.; and a fanciful idea to
fly explosive-laden model planes into the Pentagon and the
Capitol was hatched in Massachusetts. But all these dramas
were facilitated by the F.B.I., whose undercover agents and
informers posed as terrorists offering a dummy missile, fake
C-4 explosives, a disarmed suicide vest and rudimentary training
. ...the F.B.I. provided a van loaded with six 55-gallon drums of
“inert material,” harmless blasting caps, a detonator cord and a
gallon of diesel fuel to make the van smell flammable. An
undercover F.B.I. agent even did the driving...
Mystery man Holmes has no
backgroundOn top of all this, Holmes apparently has no background.
"He's not on anybody's radar screen -- nothing,"
said a peace officer in a NYT article. "This guy is somewhat
of an enigma. Nobody knows anything about him." (http://www.
Mr. Holmes's only criminal history is a traffic summons, the
authorities said. He earned a bachelor's degree with honors
in neuroscience in 2010 from the University of California,
Riverside, and was a graduate student in neurosciences
at the University of Colorado at Denver's Anschutz Medical
Campus... He was currently collecting unemployment...
Question: How does an unemployed
medical student afford $20,000 in
weapons gear?If you start to look at the really big picture here, the obvious
question arises: How does anunemployed medical student
afford all the complex weapons gear, bomb-making gear,
"flammable" booby trap devices, ammunition, multiple
magazines, bullet-proof vest, groin protection, ballistic helmet,
SWAT uniform and all the rest of it?
A decent AR-15 rifle costs $1,000 or more all by itself. The
shotgun and handgun might run another $800 total. Spare
mags, sights, slings, and so on will run you at least another
$1,000 across three firearms. The bullet-proof vest is easily
another $800, and the cost of the bomb-making gear is
anybody's guess. With all the specialty body gear, ammunition,
booby-trap devices and more, I'm guessing this is at least
$20,000 in weapons and tactical gear, much of which is
very difficult for civilians to get in the first place.
The mere manufacture of an explosive booby-trap device is,
all by itself, a felony crime by the way. And remember: "Aurora
Police Chief Dan Oates said Holmes' apartment is booby-trapped
with a 'sophisticated' maze of flammable devices. It could take
hours or days for authorities to disarm it," reported Yahoo News (http://sg.sports.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/suspect-neuroscience-
Question: Where does an unemployed, introverted medical
school student get the training to deploy sophisticated booby
traps, tactical body armor, weapons systems and more?
Certainly not in graduate school!
All this leads to an obvious third party influence over all this.
Someone else taught this guy these skills and funded the
acquisition of the equipment.
Note: Some readers have questioned the $20,000 figure
estimated here, saying this gear could have been acquired
for only $10,000 or so. I doubt that, as all the extras that
you need to effectively run these guns cost a lot of money:
training courses, spare magazines, etc. Just a decent AR-15
battle sight (a holographic red dot sight) canrun $1,000 -
$2,000. Search "ACOG" if you don't believe me. It is also
reported that Holmes bought 6,000 rounds of ammo,
which definitely isn't cheap either. It's clear this guy was
spending big bucks. Whether it's $10k or $20k isn't really
that much of a point.
Staged just in time for a vote on
the UN small arms treaty?More and more, this shooting is looking like a deliberate plot
staged by the government itself much like Operation Fast and
Furious pulled off by the ATF (http://www.naturalnews.com/032934
_ATF_illegal_firearms.html) which helped smuggle tens of
thousands of guns into Mexico for the purpose of causing
"gun violence" in the USA, then blaming the Second
Amendment for it.
All this looks like James Holmes completed a "mission" and
then calmly ended that mission by surrendering to police
and admitting everything. The mission, as we are now
learning, was to cause as much terror and mayhem as
possible, then to have that multiplied by the national
media at exactly the right time leading up the UN vote
next week on a global small arms treaty that could result
in gun confiscation across America. (http://lewrockwell.com
Even Forbes.com wrote about this quite extensively, warning
readers about the coming gun confiscation effort related to
the UN treaty. The story was authored by Larry Bell (http://
should...) and says the UN treaty could "override our national
sovereignty, and in the process, provide license for the federal
government to assert preemptive powers over state regulatory
powers guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment in addition to our
Second Amendment rights."
In other words, this has all the signs of Fast & Furious, Episode II.
I wouldn't be surprised to discover someone in Washington was
behind it all. After all, there's no quicker way to disarm a nation
and take total control over the population than to stage violence,
blame it on firearms, then call for leaders to "do something!" Such
calls inevitably end up resulting in gun confiscation, and it's never
too long after that before government genocide really kicks in
like we saw with Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao and other tyrants.
Governments routinely murder millionsHere's a short list of government mass murder carried out
throughout history, almost always immediately following the
disarmament of the public (and usually involving staged false
flag events to justify the disarmament):
50+ million dead: Mao Ze-Dong (China, 1958-61 and 1966-69,
12+ million dead: Adolf Hitler (Germany, 1939-1945) - concentration
camps, civilian deaths and dead Russian POWs
8+ million dead: Leopold II of Belgium (Congo, 1886-1908)
6+ million dead: Jozef Stalin (USSR, 1932-39)
5+ million dead: Hideki Tojo (Japan, 1941-44)
2+ million dead: Ismail Enver (Turkey, 1915-22)
1.7 million dead: Pol Pot (Cambodia, 1975-79)
1.6 million dead: Kim Il Sung (North Korea, 1948-94)
1.5 million dead: Menghistu (Ethiopia, 1975-78)
1 million dead: Yakubu Gowon (Biafra, 1967-1970)
900,000 dead: Leonid Brezhnev (Afghanistan, 1979-1982)
800,000 dead: Jean Kambanda (Rwanda, 1994)

Death by government:
A "monopoly of force" in government
is far more dangerous than a
crazed lone shooterSo yes, James Holmes and other crazed shooters kill a
number of people each year in random acts of violence.
It's horrifying and wrong, but it's nothing compared to the
millions of lives that governments tend to destroy when
they gain total power over the populace.
The most dangerous thing in the world, it turns out, is not a
crazy person with a rifle; it's a government with a "monopoly of
force" over the entire population. And that's exactly what the
UN spells out as its goal for the world: Stripping all power from
individual citizens and handing "monopolies of force" to the
governments of the world, shoring up their positions as the only
"legitimate" power on the planet.
See this document entitled, "Geneva Centre for the Democratic
Control of Armed Forces (DCAF)" policy paper No. 24:
As this document reveals, a table entitled "Governance solutions
for reasserting the state monopoly on the use of force" lists the
options available to governments to re-establish "monopolies
of force" against their own people:
• (Re-)establish state monopoly
- Ownership of WMDs
- Safety Inspectorates
• Prohibit business activity
- Justice and Execution
- Deadly Force?
• Regulate/limit activities
- Private defense/security services
- Control of financial transfers
- Export controls
- Transport and infrastructure safety
- Environmental impact
Interestingly, that document also describes "terrorism" in a way
that perfectly matches the Aurora, Colorado "Batman" movie
Terrorists aim to spread panic and fear in societies in order to
achieve political goals, be they based on left- or right-wing,
social-revolutionary, nationalistic or religious ideologies. They
are organized in a clandestine way, most often in small groups
and cells... Typical tactical means include kidnapping, hostage-
taking, sabotage, murder, suicide attacks, vehicle bombs and
improvised explosive devices.
A global monopoly of forceThis document is a goldmine of information about the globalist
agenda to disarm and enslave the population. Check out page
28, which reads:
The legitimate monopoly of force should not be limited to the
nation-state but should be based on the local, national,
regional and the global levels.
Global Security Governance and the Monopoly of Force
At the global level no monopoly of violence exists. The UN
Security Council already has a monopoly power to authorize
the use of force at the global level, although the UN was never
given the necessary means to exercise this authority, such as
the capacity to implement sanctions, a police force and armed
This deficiency in global governance acts as a bottleneck and
a barrier to the creation of thedemocratically legitimized
monopoly of violence that is globally required.
