A Proper Gander At Propaganda

Truth Transcends Community

"Propaganda in the United States is spread by both government and media entities. Propaganda is information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to influence opinions. It's used in advertising, radio, newspaper, posters, books, television, and other media."  -  Propaganda in the United States - Wikipedia

Social Shepherds & Crowd Control

"Our invisible governors are, in many cases, unaware of the identity of their fellow members in the inner cabinet.They govern us by their qualities of natural leadership, their ability to supply needed ideas and by their key position in the social structure. Whatever attitude one chooses to take toward this condition, it remains a fact that in almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons—a trifling fraction of our hundred and twenty million—who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind, who harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world."

The Victim Card: A Useful Emotional Shield

How can we criticize official narrative when we are supposed to pray for those that died? We are to show respect for the supposed dead by turning off our brains. Leave critical judgement aside and go on officially sanctioned emotional roller coaster ride.

Published 5:34 p.m. CT Oct. 9, 2017 | Updated 7:54 p.m. CT Oct. 9, 2017

"BIG SANDY – It didn’t take long for the crowd to grow Monday for the visitation for Sonny Melton at Big Sandy High School. The gym was already set up for Tuesday’s funeral with rows of metal folding chairs. Those rows of chairs helped bring the line fully into the building as people weaved their way among the rows. “I’m not sure what to say when we get up there,” Henry County High School assistant football coach Tony Bond said. “There’s nothing you can say; it’s a horrible situation.” Melton was one of the 59 people killed Oct. 1 in the Las Vegas shooting. He was shot in the back while getting his wife, Heather, to safety."

Heather Melton On NBC Nightly News

I'd wager Heather has lost track of all the interviews she has done. How many local and national level interviews do you suppose she has done? Do you think the number is triple digits? What about radio and print interviews as well, and perhaps online ones too? This woman is in the midst of a real public relations blitz!

 

From Columbine to Sandyhook to Paris and even the recent Vegas event, mass shootings make for big News!

"BIG SANDY – Not every mailbox and road sign on the highway from Camden to Big Sandy has a green bow or balloon connected to it, but most of them do. That’s what the people of the town of Big Sandy did on Saturday to make the place look nice for a hero’s welcome. The occasion was a somber one as the hero, Sonny Melton, died in the gunfire during the Las Vegas shooting last weekend. He was hit in the back by a bullet while shielding his wife, Heather, as they sought cover.

Melton’s body was flown into Tennessee on Saturday afternoon. Crowds gathered to greet the police escort for the hearse. It is scheduled to travel through the Benton County towns of Camden and Big Sandy and into Henry County and the town of Paris before arriving at Ridgeway Funeral Home. Crowds began assembling about 5:30 p.m. with lawn chairs and signs in the Big Sandy High School parking lot entering town from the south and the congregation grew throughout the length of the town, which is a couple miles. Visitation for Melton will be Monday from 2-8 p.m. and Tuesday from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., when his funeral is set to begin."

"Visitation and funeral will be in the gym at Big Sandy High School."

The Concert Held The Very Next Day

"Shaken and solemn, some of county music's biggest stars took the stage at Ascend Amphitheater to sing, pray and remember."

"They're like family," Keith Urban said of the victims. "That's the one thing about country music that's always been at the center of it. It's about community."

"Las Vegas mass shooting victims remembered in vigil at Ascend Amphitheater"

By Jessica Bliss and Adam Tamburin, The Tennessean

"Candace Beine was in town from Wisconsin to see Eric Church at the Grand Ole Opry. When she heard of a chance to celebrate fellow country fans who were killed and wounded in Las Vegas, she decided to come. Beine acknowledged the shooting was a horrific reminder of the fact that safety can never be guaranteed. “It’s scary to be at a festival where you’re searched, you’re wanded, everyone inside is safe,” and yet violence can still strike, she said. “I don’t know you control a situation like that.” But she said her love for the music — and the people who sing it — will keep her coming to concerts and festivals.“You’re at risk no matter what you do,” she said. “There so much in this world that is scary. I don’t want to be scared.”"

Who is Dr. Heather Melton? This is from December 2016.

Dr. Heather Melton-Orthopedic Surgeon  source: henrycomedcenter   Published on Dec 16, 2016

If such tragedy happened to you, would you travel from interview to interview like a Hollywood celebrity selling something?

Dr. Heather Melton, mother of three. If something like this happened to me, I know I would want to be home with my children, friends and family, and not doing a series of public relations interviews; having to sit through hair and makeup and all the rest over and over again, but I guess I am a weirdo.



Why can't we easily find photographs of 29 year old Sonny Melton dressed up as an emergency room nurse?

Why does he appear to be about the same age in all the photos?  I would think that we should have at least a handful of photographs of Sonny Melton dressed up as an emergency room nurse, one would think the family would have supplied such photography to the News media. One would think the media would ask for photographic representation of this guy as a male nurse, after all "a picture is worth a thousand words", or so they say. The fact that the wife is supposed to be the doctor and the husband the nurse is a role reversal that would seem to be right up the News media meme filled alley. 

No Evidence He Was A Nurse.jpg

How can the husband, an ER nurse, work with his wife, an orthopedic surgeon, are these not two different types of medical roles?

Do orthopedic surgeons work the emergency room? If we go by Heather's own account she would be a terrible ER doctor. She did not appear to know how to treat gunshot wounds, which would make sense considering her apparent background.

"Sonny was an emergency room nurse who often worked with his wife and once told his father he chose his profession to help save lives."

Want to learn to shoot guns?

James Warren Melton is your man.

"TENNESSEE HANDGUN CARRY PERMIT CLASS $75 - In this class, firearms safety, shooting fundamentals and the legal principals of self defense are presented and explained. An elementary shooting test as well as a written final test must be passed before successful completion and the issuance of a course certificate. This class must be taken before applying for a handgun carry permit. Each student must have a safe and reliable handgun, 50 rounds of ammunition and eye and ear protection. A secure holster is highly recommended.

BASIC ARMED DEFENSE CLASS $75 (4 HOUR CLASS)- Safety considerations are thoroughly discussed and then the student moves quickly to the range . An introduction is made to the importance of strategic defensive planning and proper equipment selection. The range work starts with basic shooting drills and progresses through more advanced techniques on single and multiple threat targets. Each student will need a reliable handgun, strong side holster, at least one extra magazine or speedloader and belt pouch, small flashlight and at least 300 rounds of ammunition

ADVANCED ARMED DEFENSE $75 (4 HOUR CLASS) - This is considered by most students to be our most intense and interesting class. Psycho-motor body reactions to stress are studied and applied to "real life" situations with the defensive Handgun. The range time will focus on speed and accuracy as well as good decision making under stress. Ground fighting is also introduced. The same equipment is needed as in the Basic class. 

DEFENSIVE RIFLE CLASS $75 (4 HOUR CLASS) - The modern rifle is considered to be the best all around defensive weapon available. This class introduces the student to the tactics and skills needed to master this type of serious defensive tool. A reliable rifle, 2 or 3 extra magazines, 300 rounds of ammo, and the same equipment needed for the Basic Handgun Class are required.

DEFENSIVE SHOTGUN CLASS $75 (4 HOUR CLASS) - The role of the shotgun in defensive situations is not well understood by the average defensive shooter. The awesome power and extreme effectiveness of the shotgun should not be underestimated. The range time will help the student develop the skill to use the shotgun safely and efficiently in a personal protection mode. A reliable shotgun with attached sling is needed by each student along with 50 birdshot shells, 5 buckshot shells and 5 slugs. No special type of shotgun is needed."

Training Basics With The Next Generation Glock Pistol

James Warren Melton Says:

"Well, Tony and I have just returned home from a flight up north with our newly updated Glock Armorers certificates in hand. We were gone three days and what busy days they were! We hob-knobbed with police trainers, competitive shooters and industry insiders as we practiced troubleshooting pistol malfunctions, replacing broken parts and installing upgrades to what Tony affectionately calls " the epitome of handgun defense", that is a Glock pistol. This year, we were happy to find the Glock Manager of Training, Mr. Scotty Banks leading his crew during the class sessions. Mr. Banks has many years experience as the "go to guy" in any discussion of Glock repair and is just one heck of a nice guy. We also were the first armorer class to discuss the new Generation 5 Glock pistols. The new Gen 5 handguns were also on display at the giant NRA Carry-Guard Expo happening upstairs in the same building. Tony and I plan on putting this training to good use as we continue to provide the best classes possible here at U.S. Security. Our commitment to keeping up with new products, services and trends provides a great basis to keep us proficient with the ability to assist our clients with the outstanding service we have come to be known for.  If we can be of help, or to check about a class, just give Tony or me a call."

Generation 5

"We who are Glock fans have been long awaiting the release for any info on the new Gen 5 pistols, and now we finally have it. There have been some changes and upgrades. It seems they listened to not only the FBI requirements but also to us, their customers. We now have this info to look at and read about and see a possible release date of the pistol. I for one will be in line to buy the G17 model (my favorite), and I hope it feels better then the Gen 4. I have stayed away from the G4 models because I personally did not like them.

The Gen 3 models have long been my favorite. Glock had this to say about the new Glock Gen 5 pistols: 

“The G17 Gen5 and G19 Gen5 pistols we are introducing next week were inspired by the GLOCK M pistols used by the FBI and include many features the GLOCK community has been asking for.  There are over 20 design changes which differentiate our Gen5 pistols from their Gen4 predecessors, including a flared mag-well, a new DLC finish, the GLOCK Marksman Barrel, ambidextrous slide stop levers, and a grip which has no finger grooves. GLOCK should be announcing the launch of their G17 Gen5 and G19 Gen5 pistols on Wednesday, August 30th.”

Gee, Glock Sure Makes A Great Mass Shooting Weapon, Or So They Say...

Glock Branded Mass Shootings Are News

"The earliest known case of a Glock being used in a mass shooting came in 1991, when unemployed merchant mariner George Jo Hennarddrove his pick-up truck through the plate-glass window of Luby's Cafeteria in Killeen, Texas. Hennard exited his vehicle and methodically fired two pistols, including a Glock 17, at restaurant patrons, killing 24 and injuring 27."

"A list of mass shootings between April 1999 and January 2013 prepared for lawmakers in Connecticut showed that rifles were used in 10 incidents and shotguns in 10 others, while handguns were used in 42. Glock brand pistols turned up in nine of those cases. Another compendium of mass shootings since 2009 by the New York Times showed that handguns were used in 13 incidents, compared to five in which a rifle was the primary weapon. Glocks were recovered from six of the perpetrators. Mateen, who worked nine years for the security firm G4S, used a Glock 17, a model that is commonly issued to military personnel, police officers, and private security guards, said David VanDriel, co-founder of Miami-based Direct Action 1ndustries, a company that provides defense training to law enforcement officers and civilians. He said the weapons are marketed for their durability, safety features, and efficiency. "The Glock 17 is extremely reliable," VanDriel said. "It doesn't require a whole lot of maintenance time." Suleiman Yousef, a bodyguard, firearms instructor, and bail bondsman from Miami, told VICE News that the Glock 17 is one of the Austrian gunmaker's best-selling semi-automatic pistols. It's affordable — usually selling for about $500 — and it uses 9mm bullets, a type of ammunition that is produced in high volume. "You can go to any country in the world and find Glocks and Glock parts," Yousef said. "I'm going to Mexico and Brazil in July for work. When I get to both places, I'll have a Glock waiting for me."   

Originally designed for the Austrian army following World War II by company founder Gaston Glock, the Glock 17 entered American police service in the mid-1980s following a series of incidents that left cops feeling outgunned by criminals, including a 1986 FBI shootout with heavily armed bank robbers in Miami, Florida, that left two agents dead. Today, Glock makes "pistols available for every man and woman, for every application and every hand size," according to a company promo video.

The earliest known case of a Glock being used in a mass shooting came in 1991, when unemployed merchant mariner George Jo Hennarddrove his pick-up truck through the plate-glass window of Luby's Cafeteria in Killeen, Texas. Hennard exited his vehicle and methodically fired two pistols, including a Glock 17, at restaurant patrons, killing 24 and injuring 27. In the last nine years, Glocks have figured prominently in at least five mass shootings. In 2007, Seung-Hui Cho, a senior at Virginia Tech University, used a Glock 19 and Walther P22 to kill 32 people and wound 17 others in two separate attacks on campus. The Glock 19 is a smaller pistol that is easier to conceal. Three years later, Jared Lee Loughner used a Glock 19 to shoot 20 people in Arizona, gravely wounding US Representative Gabrielle Giffords and killing six others, including a nine-year-old girl. In 2013, Pedro Vargas went on a shooting rampage inside his apartment complex in Hialeah, Florida. With his Glock 17, Vargas murdered six people and held two neighbors hostage during an eight-hour stand-off until a SWAT team stormed the building and killed him. On June 17, 2015, Dylann Roof killed nine people with a .45-caliber Glock pistol at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina. Two months later, Vester Lee Flanagan II shot and killed a Roanoke, Virginia, television reporter and a cameraman with a Glock 19 during a live news broadcast.

Based on recent history, it doesn't make a difference if a mass shooter is using a rifle or handgun, VanDriel said. "You can cause severe damage with any kind of gun," he said. "I would imagine [Mateen] knew how to operate the weapons he was carrying."

source: Glock pistols are the overlooked weapon in American mass shootings ...


"One weapon always gets overlooked in US mass shootings — and it's not an assault rifle"

"But Mateen was also carrying a Glock, a brand of firearm that has been used nearly as often as assault rifles to commit mass murder. A list of mass shootings from April 1999 to January 2013 prepared for lawmakers in Connecticut showed that rifles were used in 10 incidents and shotguns in 10 others, while handguns were used in 42. Glock-brand pistols turned up in nine of those cases.

Glocks were recovered from six of the perpetrators."

Interesting Factoid #2: Origins of The Mandalay Bay

In 1996 The Hacienda Hotel is carefully rigged to implode into its own footprint apparently by 'the Archons'.

Great shades of 9/11!

"In 1995, the Hacienda was purchased by Circus Circus Enterprises from Lowden's Archon Corporation. By this time, it was dwarfed by the many new megaresorts that were being built, in particular the Luxor which had just been recently completed. On December 10, 1996, the Hacienda was closed to the public after 40 years, and imploded later that month. This implosion was broadcast on the Fox Network as a part of their New Year's Eve 1996 telecast. Despite the implosion, parts of the old resort still stood, due to the building not falling into its footprint, but toppling into its parking lot. The next day a wrecking crew was brought in to bring down the remaining parts."

"In March 1999, it was replaced by the Mandalay Bay."

Post Script Bonus Link: Cutting Through the Fog - Notes on the Route 91 Shooting on 10/1

An excerpt:

"A final note about the ‘mainstream’ conspiracy theories floating around. This is my reading based on the activity I’ve seen on Reddit’s r/conspiracy subreddit since the shooting began. There seems to be a concerted effort to promote the idea the Las Vegas shooting was a false flag, but not a hoax. In other words, people were killed, but it didn’t happen the way the official story says, and not for the reasons we’re given. So basically we’re sort of seeing the unpacking of a mainstream JFK-style conspiracy theory. But instead of taking years, the mainstream conspiracy stories are being unleashed within hours and days....Even people presenting evidence of a hoax (fake pictures, crisis actors) are quick to say that they think people really died. Their argument is that the attack was carried out by multiple shooters, and the crisis actors are being used to push the mainstream ‘lone gunman’ theory."
