Anti-Jewish Attacks and Mass Shootings; Psychiatric Drugs, Gun Control, Knife Control

A wacko intruded on Hanukkah candle lighting services at a rabbi’s synagogue in Monsey, New York and attacked 5 people, stabbing them with a knife. The attacker attempted to get away in his Nissan Sentra but he was stopped and arrested by police.

New York has had several incidents of anti-Jewish attacks in recent years. What is with these people? As the late Rodney King would say, “Can’t we all just get along?”

There are many issues here to address, and I have very little time with which to address them. But one issue is, was it really antisemitism that was the main contributor to the attacker’s attack? Apparently, the 37-year-old synagogue attacker “has a long history of mental illness and hospitalizations. He has no history of like violent acts and no convictions for any crime,” according to his family.

You see, one problem in our society now is that if someone has some emotional issues, or any kind of psychological or behavioral issues, the “doctors,” hospitals and schools immediately put the person on terrible psychiatric drugs, anti-anxiety drugs like Xanax, SSRI antidepressants including Prozac, Zoloft and Luvox, and anti-ADHD and other drugs to “help” the person such as someone who is labeled by practitioners as “autistic,” etc. I am not saying that this attacker has been taking any of those drugs, but it wouldn’t surprise me.

As I wrote previously regarding the suicides of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, and discussed in this post, those psychiatric drugs have a history of causing someone’s depression to get worse, causing suicidal thoughts and behaviors, and contributing to a person’s judgment that affects one’s ability to empathize with others as well as one’s ability to control aggressive impulses. Dr. Peter Breggin has written and spoken about these issues extensively and testified before Congressional committees on these issues.

And besides this week’s New York synagogue stabbing attack, following that there was another church shooting in Texas. Two people had been killed, but almost immediately the shooter was killed by armed citizens who shot back.

These attacks have been happening more in recent years, and many of the attackers had been taking strong psychiatric drugs. So, as I had mentioned previously, those past attackers include Columbine High School shooter Eric Harris, the South Carolina church shooter Dylan Roof, the Santa Barbara college shooter Elliot Rodger, the Sandy Hook school shooter Adam Lanza, the Aurora Colorado theater shooter James Holmes, and the Germanwings Airlines co-pilot Andreas Lubitz had all been taking those damn psychiatric drugs prior to their rampages.

I stopped trying to find out if any of the more recent mass killers had been taking those psychiatric drugs. This older article and this one list several more earlier examples of mass killers who had been taking psychiatric drugs prior to their rampages.

So, as I have mentioned in my previous posts, if someone wanted to stop taking the psychiatric drugs, to prevent dangerous withdrawal symptoms see Dr. Breggin’s book on psychiatric drug withdrawal, Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal: A Guide for Prescribers, Therapists, Patients and Their Families.

The reason why many people don’t know about those aspects of recent mass killings is that mainstream news outlets get a lot of their advertising revenues from the pharmaceutical companies. With these issues and other issues such as the nationwide blackout on the truth about the FBI and CIA’s illegally going after the Trump campaign and administration, we have seen just how dishonest and corrupt the mainstream news media really are. They are a disgrace.

So anyway, rather than frothing at the mouth over “hate” in society, perhaps the New York governor Andrew Cuomo ought to discuss why so many recent mass killers had been shown to be taking psychiatric drugs which no doubt have been contributing to their judgments and affecting their sense of empathy and conscience (or lack thereof).

Now, that’s the first issue involved here. Another issue is what is going on with the “black community” that is causing so much hate directed toward Jews? Again, obviously not all black people hate Jews. And not all the anti-Jewish attacks in New York had been committed by black people, but that has been common now. Robert Wenzel addressed this issue, and points out the possible influence that the “Nation of Islam” might have on certain communities, and particularly on the college campuses. The “Nation of Islam” is the organization led by Louis Farrakhan, a popular but anti-Jewish “minister.”

And finally, these incidents, including the anti-Jewish attacks in New York and elsewhere, show that the short-sighted, emotion-driven calls for more gun control are counter-productive. Will we see calls for “knife control” now? They have had that in the land of idiocy, England, for a while now.

Regarding these issues, there is an important organization, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO). On their About page, they write:

Three primary goals drive the Washington-based human-rights group Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO):

Destroy so-called “gun control” (code words for disarming innocent people).

Expose the misguided notions that lead people to seek out so-called “gun control”.

Encourage Americans to understand and defend all of the Bill of Rights for all citizens. The Second Amendment is the “Guardian” of the Bill of Rights.

And,

JPFO has always welcomed people of all religious beliefs (or none) who share a common goal of opposing and reversing potentially deadly victim disarmament policies. You don’t have to be Jewish to join JPFO; you just have to love freedom.

Aaron Zelman, a proud Jew, initially aimed at educating the Jewish community about the historical evils that Jews have suffered when they have been disarmed. He was appalled that so many Jewish politicians and influential Jewish public officials and spokespeople actually advocated citizen disarmament. He said it many a time: “Jews should be the last people on Earth to support ‘gun control’. See: An Interview With Aaron Zelman

As JPFO expanded its research into gun laws and the results of their enactments, it became blatantly obvious that so-called “gun control” had played a fundamental role in all the major genocides of the 20 th Century … not just the Holocaust. See: The Genocide Chart

So-called “gun control” is a deadly lie. Firearms registration lists lead governments-gone-bad straight to gun owners. Licensing and registration of guns has resulted in outright banning and confiscation over the last one hundred years of world history. The bloody results of these mass citizen disarmaments have been horrific.

Based on this insight, JPFO broke new ground with the award-winning documentary Innocents Betrayed. In this powerful film, viewers learn the dirty secret of “gun control”: how governments have historically deprived people of firearms … and then murdered them ruthlessly. Fifty eight minutes of hard-hitting facts that leave viewers dazed.

So that is what they have to say about that. And I agree with them 1,000%.

And like most of the people on the Left, New York Gov. Cuomo is also big on gun control. He, along with Dianne Feinstein, Cory Schnooker and the rest of them want to disarm innocent people and make them defenseless to the criminal aggression of others.

And I wonder if Cuomo is now going to suggest “knife control.” Is he also going to suggest “hate control” such as with more censorship of the Internet and other places of speech and expression?

Have We Advanced Farther Down the Road to Soviet Amerika?

The “Trump-Russia collusions”-“Trump and Russia hacking or manipulating 2016 election results” (that never actually happened and was all made up) seems to be an ongoing agenda by the national security state (a.k.a. “deep state”). This time a CIA spook with an anti-Trump agenda is exploiting a phone call with Trump and Ukrainian president involving alleged “quid pro quo” (which it wasn’t, according to the actual transcript) regarding Joe Biden’s son being investigated or not investigated, and using it as an excuse to make up more stuff and have members of the political class and the government-lapdog media endlessly repeat the hearsay, lies and propaganda toward removing Trump from office.

I think that Congressliar Adam Schiff is the worst of the worst when it comes to Soviet-wannabe government liars. They probably have something on Nancy Pelosi, who knows that a House impeachment of Trump will not get a Senate conviction, because the evidence that is available does not back the assertions of the CIA “whistleblower,” and that such a farce will only strengthen the chance of a Trump reelection. And now, after saying she also was against a Trump impeachment, Congressbimbo Tulsi Gabtard is now for a Trump impeachment. It was a botched joke.

What bothers me is the “Intel (sic) Community” changing the requirements for whistleblowers from having to have direct, first-hand knowledge (or evidence?) of improper (or illegal) behavior of other spooks or superiors, to being able to use second- or third-hand hearsay, rumor and gossip as is the case with the current allegations against Trump of pressuring foreign leaders to do something as a “quid pro quo” for political expediency.

So I’m not sure if all this is merely just an anti-Trump crusade or perhaps a part of a larger agenda to soften due process requirements against anyone who is accused of something. Particularly in the political world (which seems to be a large chunk of what Amerika is all about now, certainly not the economic or voluntary-exchange world).

For example, just as the flunkies of the DOJ, CIA and FBI made stuff up about Donald Trump to try to help Hillary Clinton win the 2016 election and if that didn’t work then make stuff up to try to take down the Trump presidency, in that regard the apparatchiks made stuff up about Brett Kavanaugh to derail his getting on the Supreme Bureaucrats. And don’t misunderstand me, I think that Kavanaugh should never have a judicial appointment given that his lower-court rulings show what a dangerous anti-America anti-due process police-state ignoramus he is. But, anyone who is accused of something has a right to require the accuser to bring forth evidence against the accused, regardless who the accused is. Trump, Kavanaugh, or you or me.

This is especially a cause for concern now because of the “Red Flag” laws already in place or that are being proposed all over Amerika. That’s mainly to do with the gun control lobby, hysterical snowflakes who can’t understand that it is the gun control laws and gun-free zones we already have in place that are disarming peaceful, responsible citizens and making the people defenseless in the event of a crazed shooter who doesn’t obey gun laws or any laws for that matter. The hysterical snowflakes just can’t seem to get through their damn noggins.

So now the hysterical snowflakes are acting as useful idiots for the police statists who want to have a government armed to the teeth ruling over a totally disarmed civilian population. This is the way that communists like “The Squad” can ram their agendas through and they will enforce their wealth-confiscation and industry-seizures at the point of a government gun against the enslaved and helpless population. Martial law? Civil unrest? In America? (Some people think I’m way off, or that I’m “paranoid.” But that is because they don’t know history.)

But the “Red Flag” laws will enable anyone to accuse anyone else of anything, particularly such victims who do not support the agenda of police state, industry-seizure and wealth-confiscation, i.e. slavery of the people by the elite political class. This is the real reason why “Red Flag” laws and all the greedy and power-hungry minions of the political class have all the voices of the mainstream corporate media on their side, repeating the propaganda over and over and over.

Don’t believe the propaganda, everyone. Just assume they are lying, or they are covering up the truth (or they are spreading false information because they are ignoramuses and/or brainwashed sheeple). And especially they do not have your interests at heart. If they did, they would be promoting freedom, freedom for you and freedom for me, and that necessarily means the dismantling of the federal regime apparatus, a full and complete decentralization of this whole territory, at the very least.

Doh! Another. Democrat. Debate.

Apparently the Democrats had another debate. It was a long “three-hour tour,” and their 4th debate will be four hours and so on.

So, whether it’s their “Medicare for All” or “Climate Change” programs they want to impose, the main point of the Democrats’ programs is their greedy and envious wealth confiscation desires. Everything they want to do includes raising taxes on the productive and the workers i.e. stealing from the people.

And that’s the main point: like Thomas Piketty‘s best-seller, “Rather Than Helping People at the Bottom, Instead Let’s Pull People Down from the Top,” these greedy politicians just want to steal from the productive. And that’s it.

Their environmentalism and health care demagoguery is just a facade covering their real lust for stealing from others, their giving themselves and their cronies power over others and their enjoying the extravagances of all the wealth they use government apparatus to steal from the people. As Larken Rose would put it, these politician parasites don’t care about you, they don’t care if you have health care, and they don’t care if you suffer from climate change.

And with these fascists’ prohibitions, regulations and mandates they love control over others and another goal besides stealing from the people is their suppressing productivity. The motivation for their obsession with and lust for interfering with the lives, inventions, innovations, and progress of others is the same as why they want to steal from the wealthy, the successful and the productive: envy. It is a brainwashed ideology and fanaticism of envy, resentment and hatred of others that directs their thoughts, feelings and all their energy.

They are not that much different from their Rethuglican opponent Donald Trump who wants to interfere with the lives and productivity of foreigners that’s supposedly in the name of “protecting America’s interests,” via his anti-immigration fascism/socialism, which itself is based on myths and fairy tales. But we can leave the immigration issue for a different discussion.

And besides the government central-planning policies of the Envycrats, they also live in a world of ignorance and denial when it comes to the gun rights issue. “Beto” O’Rourke says he wants to take away people’s guns that are shooting people in Walmarts and other areas. So he agrees with Walmart and other stores who are asking customers to not carry guns into their stores. The reason for this request is that Walmart and the other stores want to disarm law-abiding people and make them defenseless sitting ducks when the next shooting occurs.

What? They don’t want that? So they’re just ignorant and in denial? They don’t understand that gun control laws and gun-free zones only disarm people who obey the law.

Sorry for sounding like a broken record on this. Criminals who want to go shoot up a place don’t care if it’s illegal to go shoot up a place. They don’t care if murder, assault, rape and robbery are illegal, so obviously they won’t care if guns are illegal. They’re criminals. Criminals don’t obey the law.

Criminals will get their guns illegally, on the black market, just as the drug laws for the past 60 years have not prevented people from getting their drugs.

And regarding the gun-free zones, 98% of the mass shooters have gone to do their shooting in gun-free zones. Sorry for sounding like a broken record on this. Too bad “Beto” and all the other hysterical people out there do not seem to have that much of an attention span. These selfish hypocritical politicians benefit from arming themselves or having armed security guards, but they want to disarm the commoners.

Anyway, it sounds like some of the sheeple are now favoring Elizabeth Warren, never mind her shrill lecturing, her pandering to every special interest group she could think of. Go away, Liawatha. Please.

Then there was Kamala Harris — Is she on some kind of tranquilizer? Her poking fun at people on the Wizard of Oz was very unbecoming. That was one of my favorite movies. And Harris has this evil-sounding laugh. The anti-Oz remark was especially unladylike.

These horrible people all seem to be in agreement to steal more earnings away from the people and disarm them. Can you imagine having a bodyguard and walking down the street when a robber approaches you and demands your money, your bodyguard helps the robber, not you. That is what government in Washington is.

And Joe Biden? I think he has Alzheimer’s, and I don’t mean that in a derogatory or ageist kind of way like the annoying Julian Castro seemed to do at the debate. Biden has clearly lost some of his cognitive functioning, including his brain-to-mouth motor coordination when he talks. At times he has sounded just like my father (without the socialist claptrap) during his last year or two. And the latest thing I heard was that Biden will release his medical records, and the news mentioned that he takes statin drugs. (Uh-oh, says Bill Sardi and this Reuters article, on statins.)

I think the best ones at the recent debate were Marianne Williamson and Tulsi Gabbard. (Wait, they weren’t at the debate. Sorry. They were still the best ones at that debate.)

Declaring the Wrong People as “Domestic Terrorists”

The City of San Francisco government has declared the National Rifle Association (NRA) to be a “Domestic Terrorist Organization.” And now the NRA is suing the city for violating people’s “free speech rights for political reasons” and for “trying to blacklist anyone associated with the NRA from doing business there.”

And Judge Andrew Napolitano has some important comments on the city’s declaration, and asks if government has freedom of speech rights. And the answer is No.

But exactly what has the NRA organization done that’s of a “domestic terrorist” nature? I’m sure that not one of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors can answer the question, because the answer is … nothing. But if the Board want to declare people as “domestic terrorists,” why don’t they point to the actual individuals who have done things that actually terrorize people or commit acts of violence that result in terrorizing people?

For example, the El Paso shooter. The gun maker or the organization that promotes firearms had no responsibility for what the shooter did. If he had rammed his car into a crowd and killed 22 people, should we declare the auto maker, the car dealership and AAA as a “Domestic Terrorist Organization”? Of course not.

People are hysterical now, and they need to calm down.

Orwellian: Washington, DC Will Determine Who Has “Mental Illness”

Jon Rappoport has this excellent analysis of calls for a new agency to determine who is mentally ill or mentally unstable and thus may not have a gun. Once diagnosed with “mental illness,” psychiatrists will give these newly diagnosed “mentally ill” people psychiatric drugs, so that they probably WILL become violent! Doh! (Is there anyone more “mentally ill” than our typical Washington bureaucrat? Just askin’.)

How Will Authoritarians (e.g. Donald Trump) Use “Red Flag” Laws?

Pastor Chuck Baldwin has some commentary on the calls for “Red Flag” laws, in which people are urged to report to the police someone they think might be “dangerous,” and the police will then confiscate that person’s guns, if he or she has guns. Chuck Baldwin writes:

If law-abiding gun owners don’t call their U.S. senators en masse, and I mean posthaste, you are very likely to wake up one morning around 4am to the sound of a SWAT team breaking down your door to confiscate your guns, prepared to kill you or any member of your family who resists. Why? Perhaps because a gun-hating neighbor hates you having guns or a relative doesn’t like you and is looking for any way to “teach you a lesson” or your ex-spouse is looking for any way to “get even” with you or an anti-gun cop with a grudge wants to send a political message or a family doctor or school teacher overheard one of your children talk about how many guns daddy has and became alarmed, etc., ad infinitum.

Plus, the FBI has just recently stated that if you believe in “conspiracy theories,” you are a “domestic terrorist threat.” That statement is from an FBI intelligence bulletin from the bureau’s Phoenix field office, dated May 30, 2019. That FBI designation alone could very easily precipitate a “red flag” gun confiscation order being rendered against you.

And Donald Trump himself recently demonstrated how dangerous “red flag” laws are. In a tweet on August 13, President Trump said,

“Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant? Filthy language and a total loss of control. He shouldn’t be allowed to have any weapon. He’s nuts!”

Are you paying attention? Donald Trump was threatening to use a “red flag” law to authorize police agencies to take away an American citizen’s Natural God-given right of self-defense simply because Trump didn’t like what the citizen said—about him.

Folks, don’t you see? Those in authority can use “red flag” gun confiscation laws against ANYONE they want and for ANY REASON they want.

In other words, there doesn’t have to be a reason. Under “red flag” laws, all it takes for police to come and seize your guns is for someone to make a “red flag” accusation against you. That’s it. And, yes, it really IS that easy.

“Red flag” laws not only eviscerate the 2nd Amendment, but the 1st Amendment, 4th Amendment, 5th Amendment, 6th Amendment, 7th Amendment and 8th Amendment.

All this most recent hysteria is in response to two mass shootings, in El Paso and in Dayton. The hysterical masses are calling for “common sense gun laws,” yet their proposals are not common sense. They are irrational, knee-jerk responses.

We do not seem to be hearing the non-hysterical, rational responses to those shootings. Why aren’t people bringing up the points that actually are “common sense” points?

Such as, if someone at the El Paso Walmart had been armed, that person could have disabled the shooter early on and saved many lives. Why do we never or rarely hear that point being made? I don’t even hear the “conservative” talk radio ditto-heads say that, quite frankly.

Speaking of the talk radio ditto-heads, Daniel McAdams (of the Ron Paul Institute) stated that he has been banned from Twitter permanently, because he called Sean Hannity “retarded,” even though it is actually the truth. Searching Twitter for “retarded” will find many results by other people using that term. But I digress.

Back to the gun rights issue. Another point that we don’t hear being made is that most of these mass shootings, I think it’s about 98%, occur at “gun-free zones.” The psychopaths prefer gun-free zones because they know that there is little to no chance that someone might shoot back at him.

But no, let’s continue to be irrational and play little games with people’s lives, because the people on the left love power and control. And they want to disarm others and make them defenseless because it’s easier for communists, fascists, and other totalitarians to impose their orders and diktats onto others who can’t defend themselves.

And further compromise people’s security by making “Red Flag” laws so that disgruntled neighbors and ex-wives can take revenge.
