Kupelian Writes about Proximity of Mass Shootings


John R. Houk

© August 4, 2019

Democrats and other Left-Wing ilk are using mass shooting deaths that stretch in a short time between July 28 through August 4 (Gilroy CA [and HERE], El Paso TX and Dayton OH) to steal guns from law-abiding gun owners who are increasingly acquiring guns for self-defense than just hunting.

 

If Dems got everything they wanted in “gun control” the murderers who are capable of acquiring guns illegally will still shoot to kill people who don’t have guns. The Dems care less about human life and care more about controlling human lives. Folks, controlling human lives is the backbone of totalitarianism.

 

In saying those sentiments, I liked what David Kupelian posted today at WND. Kupelian cites a study that examines the bloody phenomenon of multiple mass shootings one incident after another in terms of a mass contagion of copycats influenced by the consumption bad habits polluting the mind toward moral accountability for immoral actions.

BACK-TO-BACK MASS SHOOTINGS HIGHLIGHT ‘CONTAGION’ EFFECT

FBI expert: ‘More compromised, marginalized individuals … seeking inspiration from those past attacks’

With two mass shootings in the space of 12 hours – first Saturday’s massacre at an El Paso Wal-Mart that left 20 dead and 26 wounded, and then the shooting spree outside a bar in Dayton, Ohio, that killed nine and injured 27 – pundits are already acting like they understand both the problem and the solution.

 

Some are irresponsible opportunists, like Democratic presidential candidate and El Paso native Robert “Beto” O’Rourke who stood before TV cameras and blamed President Donald Trump for the carnage, cravenly politicizing the catastrophe even before the bloody, mangled, brains-splattered-everywhere bodies had been removed from the Wal-Mart crime scene. Other more restrained and responsible voices have been citing the usual suspects– semi-automatic firearms, mental illness, “manifestos,” narcissism, social media, the desire for fame and so on.

 

But in light of the close proximity of these two most recent mass shootings, as well as the mass shooting just six days earlier, at a garlic festival in Gilroy, California, resulting in three dead (plus the shooter) and 12 injured, consider the problem from a different vantage point – one that casts the growing incidence of mass-shootings in terms of “contagion.” Or in more everyday terms, the “copycat crime” effect.

 

It’s not a matter of speculation.

 

In a 2015 peer-reviewed study titled “Contagion in Mass Killings and School Shootings,” published in the Public Library of Science journal PLoS ONE, researchers concluded that many mass shootings are triggered by other similar attacks, especially very recent ones:

 

We find significant evidence that mass killings involving firearms are incented by similar events in the immediate past. On average, this temporary increase in probability lasts 13 days … We also find significant evidence of contagion in school shootings, for which an incident is contagious for an average of 13 days … On average, mass killings involving firearms occur approximately every two weeks in the U.S., while school shootings occur on average monthly.

 

As WND documented in a comprehensive report, during a one-week window after the February 2018 mass-shooting in Parkland, Florida, police across America stopped dozens of threatened copycat school shootings before they happened.

 

“The copycat phenomenon is real,” confirmed Andre Simons of the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit in 2014. “As more and more notable and tragic events occur, we think we’re seeing more compromised, marginalized individuals who are seeking inspiration from those past attacks.”

 

The reality of copycat crimes, of course, is not new. Examples abound throughout history, from Jack the Ripper imitators to the 1980’s “Tylenol murders” that initially resulted in seven deaths, but were followed by hundreds of copycat incidents.

 

Sandy Hook killer Adam Lanza was enthralled with mass murderers, researching multiple-fatality shootings going back to 1891, and maintained a wall of infamous shooters. As reported by the Daily Mail, the investigative book, “Newtown: An American Tragedy” by Matthes Lysiak, revealed that Lanza was not only addicted to violent video games, having “notched up more than 83,000 ‘kills’ on his beloved video games including 22,000 ‘head shots’ as he trained himself for the horrific Sandy Hook massacre,” but had “also became fixated with researching mass killers, and spent hours poring over their Wikipedia entries, updating some.”

 

Likewise, jihad – the Islamic variety of mass-murder madness – has proven so susceptible to the copycat phenomenon that imitation may be the single most important factor involved, especially since jihad cheerleaders and recruiters encourage precisely that.

 

Thus, after the November 2015 coordinated terrorist attacks in Paris that killed 130, including 89 at the Bataclan Theater, concern over copycats prompted the FBI and Department of Homeland Security to send an urgent overnight bulletin to 18,000 local law enforcement agencies across America warning them to “be on the lookout for suspicious people conducting surveillance on soft targets in the United States.” Lone-wolf or self-radicalized terrorists, the feds warned, “could seek to replicate the effects of the Paris attacks.”

 

The FBI’s fears were well-founded. A few months later, in July 2016, Tunisian-born Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel killed 86 people and wounded at least 430 others by driving a 19-ton truck into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in the southern French city of Nice. After ISIS claimed responsibility and praised the mass murderer as a “soldier of the Islamic State,” a wave of copycat vehicular attacks followed around the world – including major incidents in Vienna, Berlin, London, Antwerp, Stockholm, Paris, Barcelona and Edmonton, as well as a driving-stabbing attack in the U.S. at Ohio State University.

The surprising road ahead for WND


Online publications such as WND (formerly World Net Daily) face economic woes largely due to the Leftist monopoly of Online Media. In a recent WND e-newsletter David Kupelian writes about the effects of this media stranglehold. Among other Leftist entities that Conservatives are nearly forced to use due to a monopolistic Media, Kupelian uses Google and Facebook as prime examples.

At the end of the newsletter WND provides a link enabling you the reader to circumvent the demonetizing tendencies of monopolistic Media Left. As for this small potato blog, you can show your support HERE.

The surprising road ahead for WND
David Kupelian on defeating the left’s stealth takeover of the Internet

 

E-Newsletter sent May 6 at 10:08 AM

Sent via WND

 

Dear WND reader,
Today, Monday, May 6, 2019, is WND’s 22nd anniversary as America’s first online journalism company. Thank you for your readership, loyalty and support over all these years. We deeply appreciate it. WND was here before Facebook, before Google, before almost all the other Big Tech companies that have come to dominate – and unfortunately, control – today’s Internet. Following is my candid assessment of where we are, the challenges we face in a much more hostile environment, and the clear road ahead for WND.

The Democratic Party – whose presidential candidates proudly advocate allowing convicted mass-murdering terrorists to vote, destroying America’s oil, gas and coal industries, ending private insurance, killing babies after they’re born, inviting never-ending hordes of illegal aliens to invade our country, and imposing socialism on the most successful free-market nation in history – could win the presidency and Congress next year.

How is that possible?

How could such an obviously lunatic – and catastrophic – worldview prevail in the United States of America, you ask?

There are several reasons, but let’s start with a big one: Lies take hold in the absence of truth, and the left is now deeply engaged in a campaign to eliminate truthful free speech and a free press in our beloved country.

I’m talking about the ongoing censorship and predatory monopolistic suppression of genuinely truth-based journalism.

You no doubt are already somewhat familiar with this. Every day, it seems, Facebook or Twitter or YouTube has banned or suspended or demonetized yet another conservative, Republican or Christian.

But behind such headlines, something far deeper and more consequential is happening.

The left in America – with its increasingly blatant totalitarian tendencies – already dominates most of our nation’s major institutions, from our colleges and universities, to today’s Democratic Party, to Hollywood, to the “mainstream media.” Well, now the same “progressive” left has succeeded in taking over yet another gigantic institution: the Internet.

Although WND has published many stories over the last year and a half exposing Google, Facebook and the other tech giants’ campaign to extinguish free speech and independent journalism, we probably understated the problem.

As the original online journalism organization, going way back to 1997, WorldNetDaily – like other independent news enterprises – has been enduring a powerful, concerted, multi-pronged attack.

First, there’s the all-out assault on our operating revenues.

“Journalism, sustained by traditional advertising, is dying,” confirms the respected Washington, D.C.-based Electronic Privacy Information Center, or EPIC. In the research center’s recent written testimony to Congress’s Subcommittee on Digital Commerce and Consumer Protection, EPIC summarized its findings starkly: “Two companies [Google and Facebook] dominate the market. The privacy of internet users is under assault. The revenue model that sustained journalism is broken. The ad platforms are manipulated by foreign adversaries. Secrecy and complexity are increasing as accountability is diminished.”

To understand exactly how the “Digital Cartel” has managed to wreak so much havoc, read EPIC’s letter to Congress here.

Bear in mind that what enabled Google and Facebook to accomplish this – to essentially steal the life-sustaining advertising revenues from WND and other online news organizations – is their scandalous practice of invading your privacy and harvesting and monetizing your private, personal information. Totally unrepentant over this, Facebook is now going after your bank account.

But vanishing revenues are just part of the problem.

While Google and Facebook vacuum up four-fifths of all digital advertising, thereby depriving news sites like ours of their traditional lifeblood, these same mega-companies are simultaneously censoring, suppressing and “shadow-banning” independent, right-of-center news and opinion sources. It is now utterly indisputable that the Internet gatekeepers’ leftwing bias is fully baked into their algorithms, which is why – in an era when the Trump economy is expanding, with manufacturing finally returning to the U.S. and employment at record highs – for the past two years, it is almost exclusively stories claiming Trump is a traitorous Russian double-agent that have populated the Google or Facebook news feeds where tens of millions congregate to get their “news.”

Worse, you’ve no doubt heard that many of these Internet mega-companies now rely on the same corrupt hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center, as their go-to expert on whom to discriminate against as purveyors of “hate speech.” (This, even though the SPLC’s top leaders have recently been ousted amid revelations of internal racial and sexual harassment!) The SPLC is best known for its “hate group” lists where it delights in lumping together genuinely honorable Christian/conservative organizations – like the American Family Association, Liberty Counsel, Alliance Defending Freedom, the Family Research Council and yours truly, WND – with actual hate groups like the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, Aryan Nations and the Westboro Baptist Church.

WorldNetDaily has long been featured on the SPLC’s ridiculous “hate/extremist” label. And since the Southern Poverty Law Center now determines what is “hate speech” or “fake news” for Google, Facebook and others, is it any wonder that these days, WND rarely shows up on a Google search unless you specify “WND” in your search, or else enter the exact WND headline?

There is much more going on, but hopefully it is now absolutely clear to you that, in a multitude of ways, the leftwing appropriation of the Internet is intent on accomplishing what it already has in America’s universities, popular culture, Democratic Party and establishment press. That is, to take it over, impose politically correct speech (and therefore thought) codes, and suppress dissident voices – in this case, making it extremely difficult for journalists animated by American, constitutional, biblical, commonsense values to do their job of digging out the truth and reporting it to you.

So, what does the future hold for WND and other independent media?

It’s no secret that WND has been severely impacted by this ongoing assault and is having to reinvent itself in many ways, from painful cost reductions including layoffs and pay-cuts, to optimizing remaining revenue sources, to inventing new and outside-the-box strategies in every part of our company.

Is there hope? Well, consider this.

Revered economist and technology futurist George Gilder, in his new book Life After Google: The Fall of Big Data and the Rise of the Blockchain Economy,” predicts Google will one day come to an end. Why? Because, says Gilder, at root Google’s “philosophy attempts to lay an axe to the root of human creativity, free will and man’s uniqueness as created in God’s image.”

Let me explain. Gilder, whose track record of anticipating future technology trends is impeccable, predicts that today’s extreme centralization of data, power and wealth will one day give way to a new age of decentralization, restored privacy and individual empowerment. That would mean Google-Facebook’s predatory monopolistic destruction of competitors, wanton invasion of privacy and ideological censorship also come to an end.

However, there’s a catch. Key to that better future, says Gilder, is understanding that the whole idea of “free” is an illusion. As we all have recently learned, when we access Facebook and Google for “free,” it’s only because it turns out we are the product being sold! In place of “free” services that exploit, monetize and censor us, says Gilder, new developments like blockchain technology, cryptocurrency and micropayments will one day play a crucial role in keeping the public square of information open, decentralized, healthy and thriving.

If all this still sounds a bit esoteric, let’s boil it down to its essence: Only one thing is immune to Google/Facebook’s censoring, stifling, starving and shadow-banning independent, pro-American news and analysis like WND. Only one thing can counteract Amazon sucking up all the ecommerce and crippling everyone else.

That one thing that trumps all the predatory business practices, censorship and utopian fantasies of the current Internet gatekeepers is the creativity and goodness of real people acting under the inspiration of Almighty God. Arrogant, wealthy mega-companies cannot interfere with genuine virtue and generosity working through human beings committed to helping each other.

We at WND would love nothing more than to be able to continue working our hearts out doing what we’ve been doing for you for the past 22 years. If you agree, help us. It’s just as simple as that.

The Digital Cartel – and for that matter, the rest of the dark forces of this world – cannot destroy an honorable relationship between you and us. We give to you, and you give back to us. There is no “free.” “It is always a lie,” says Gilder, “because on this earth nothing, in the end, is free.”

Timing is everything. Gilder’s hopeful predictions – that the tech giants will succumb to the self-destruct code they have unknowingly created, and that one day what he calls the “cryptocosm” will usher in a new era of unfettered Internet freedom where ideological censorship is no more, privacy is restored, and sovereign individuals happily pay a tiny amount for the content they like – may take years to come about.

But for WND to survive, that future has to be now.

Please help us today. Otherwise, we will not be around.

WND has a very large readership, millions of people who have freely benefited from its tireless and courageous journalism for two decades. If every reader chipped in just $10, or even as little as $3, we would have no financial problems at all, and in fact could expand our efforts to do even more! If you are able and inclined to donate more (to make up, very frankly, for the majority of people reading this who, for whatever reasons, will not respond), that would be wonderful. And most urgently, if you choose the monthly option for your donation, that helps us enormously as it provides a regular revenue base we can count on.

If you prefer to send a donation check, please mail it to: WND, 580 E. Street PO Box 100, Hawthorne, NV 89415-0100.

Please help us. Time is short. This is a time for action – for all of us. Our adversaries are not holding back, and we need to not hold back either. I pray you will be inspired to join us. Thank you and God bless you.

Intro to WND’s ‘After Farah Suffers Stroke…’


Intro by John R. Houk, Blog Editor

WND story by David Kupelian

April 5, 2019

 

The online publication WND has been around a long time founded in 1997. WND’s own press asserts it is the oldest online publication of its kind.

With that said, I’m on the WND email alert list providing timely news articles. This is how I discovered the unfortunate news the WND founder Joseph Farah has suffered a stroke. Below are some brief details posted on WND 3/28/19:

 

Recently, adversity hit hard when our company’s founder and CEO, Joseph Farah, suffered a serious stroke. After spending several days in the hospital undergoing extensive testing and evaluation, he is now home, resting comfortably and recovering.

 

Although no one can say with certainty how long he will be away from WND, what I can say with certainty is that Joseph and his family are extremely appreciative of your prayers, as are all of us at WND.

 

Joseph’s medical crisis, in addition to being a difficult trial for the Farah family, is likewise tough for those of us staffing the news organization he founded and has led for 22 years. I’ve known Joseph Farah for three decades, and for 20 years have worked closely with this pioneering journalist as a colleague, good friend and fellow Christian. I know him as a man of enormous talents, integrity and genuine faith.

 

For me, even more disturbing, the formerly great Washington Post recently published a hit piece against WND mere days after Farah’s stroke was announced. It’s a sad day in the media industry when a media giant rips into another media company whose founder has had a severe medical event.

 

But I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised since WaPo has become one of the chief purveyors of Left-Wing Fake News.

 

David Kupelian writing for WND chastises WaPo and provides reassurances about WND’s intentions to keep providing Conservative news with a Christian and pro-Israel slant.

 

God bless Joseph Farah and God bless WND.

AFTER FARAH SUFFERS STROKE, WASHINGTON POST LAUNCHES MAJOR ATTACK ON WND

America’s 1st online journalism organization responds to attempted takedown by D.C. behemoth

 

By David Kupelian

April 4, 2019

WND

 

Joseph Farah

 

Just five days after WND went public with the news that its founder, editor and CEO, veteran journalist Joseph Farah had suffered a devastating stroke, the Washington Post has published a lengthy article attacking Farah, his wife Elizabeth, and WND, America’s first online journalism organization.

 

The story, sensationally headlined “Inside the spectacular fall of the granddaddy of right-wing conspiracy sites,” cites mostly unnamed former employees and others. The Post also mysteriously managed to get a hold of the contents of WND’s private email server, referencing and picking apart numerous internal emails going as far back as 12 years.

 

So, what does the Washington Post story actually allege?

 

Against a backdrop of ongoing financial struggles at the company, the article rolls out numerous examples of unpaid bills, unhappy authors, supposedly bad judgment, failure to adequately communicate with board members, and “reckless and undisciplined” spending by the company’s founders.

 

Evidently the Post considers it shocking and newsworthy that over its 22-year history, a small, influential though undercapitalized company in a highly competitive business, rocked regularly by seismic changes – the dot-com crash, the Google-Facebook-Amazon disruption of the internet and so on – might experience its share of failures, difficulties and embarrassments.

 

Nowhere in the Post’s article is anything remotely illegal alleged. More to the point, nor does the Post acknowledge the important and highly regarded reporting generated day in and day out, year after year, by WND’s journalists – most of whom, remarkably, have been with WND for virtually all of its two decades of existence.

 

Most interestingly, nowhere in his massive 2,700-word article does Post reporter Manuel Roig-Franzia ever get down to what has actually caused the precipitous drop in annual revenue at WND over the last couple of years, which has led to the company’s current struggles.

 

Irony alert: One of WND’s most critical revenue streams over the past two decades has been its robust e-commerce operation featuring thousands of products: the WND Superstore. But WND’s store revenues have dropped dramatically, just as sales have tanked at countless other retailers both online and brick-and-mortar, from Barnes & Noble to Macy’s, thanks to one company – Amazon – whose founder, CEO and president Jeff Bezos is the owner of the Washington Post, having purchased it in 2013 for $250 million.

 

Seeing as Bezos is the world’s wealthiest human being, the Post fortunately suffers no financial problems like WND and others do.

 

But there’s more: Besides Amazon, other internet mega-monopolies including Google and Facebook have all but destroyed the other major revenue stream for online news: advertising.

“Journalism, sustained by traditional advertising, is dying,” says the respected Washington, D.C.-based Electronic Privacy Information Center, whose written testimony to Congress’s Subcommittee on Digital Commerce & Consumer Protection explained starkly that “the revenue model that sustained journalism is broken.”

 

These developments on the internet – along with the now well-documented progressive-left bias, censorship, skewed search algorithms, demonetizing, shadow-banning, outright banning and multiple other modes of suppressing non-leftwing thought – have severely impacted many independent journalism organizations, including WND.

 

There is so much in the Post’s article that is unfair, misleading and just wrong. But rather than refute every allegation and innuendo in this one-sided, unsympathetic portrayal of a vastly smaller but influential news competitor, maybe it’s fair game – since the Post casts aspersions not just on the actions, but the motivations, of WND co-founders Joseph and Elizabeth Farah – to examine the Post’s own motivations and agenda.

 

The Washington Post was once a great newspaper (I grew up in Washington and the Post was delivered to our door daily), best known for its fabled Watergate coverage, with Woodward and Bernstein inspiring a generation of young people to follow in their journalistic footsteps – including Joseph Farah. Those days are long gone. Critics today refer to the Washington Post as “Jeff Bezos’ vanity paper,” the Amazon founder’s chief lobbying-propaganda arm in the nation’s capital.

 

For the past two-plus years, the Post has been in the forefront of the fake news coverage of the phony Trump-Russia-collusion hoax. Let’s be clear: Month after month after month, the Washington Post feverishly promoted the worst hoax in American history.

 

Even before Trump’s election and the Russia hysteria, the Post frequently compared the New York businessman to Adolf Hitler. That’s right. As this writer documented in 2016, during that historic year the Washington Post’s election coverage included no fewer than five different Post writers explicitly comparing Trump to the Nazi monster who murdered 11 million people.

 

Enough said. As Tucker Carlson puts it, “The Washington Post is not a serious newspaper. It’s a joke.”

 

Although Joseph Farah is the only person situated to respond to many of the Post’s allegations, the paper chose to publish its takedown article right after Farah suffered a major stroke rendering him totally unable to defend himself, his wife and his news organization.

 

I don’t know why the Post chose to do such a thing. But I’ll close by simply saying for the record, as WND’s vice president and managing editor for 20 years, that I have nothing but the highest respect and love for this amazing news organization, for its founders Joseph and Elizabeth Farah, and for the dedicated journalists who work here.

 

Finally, regarding that Post headline gloating over “the spectacular fall” of WND: To paraphrase Mark Twain, “Reports of our death have been greatly exaggerated.” WND is still here. And we’re committed to doing what we’ve been doing since before Amazon, Google, Facebook and others even existed – to boldly report without fear or favor on all the corruption, lies, fraud, abuse, attacks on the Constitution, and outright delusions that increasingly dominate our great country. As the 2020 election nears, count on us to focus on underreported but life-and-death issues like voter fraud in all its forms, the left’s disastrous and flat-out insane agenda, Big Tech’s intended election rigging and much more – oh yes, and exposing fake news.

Evidence of FBI Corruption


John R. Houk

Here is a reprise of Oregon Malheur National Wildlife Refuge standoff instigated by the unjust re-sentencing of Dwight and Steven Hammond after they had already served time for a conviction that should never have happened. A bunch of ranchers from all over the Western U.S. came as a protest militia against the unjust actions of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). There were a few leaders of this rancher militia but the few headlines that made into the MSM placed Ammon Bundy and his brother Ryan as the faces of BLM resistance. Ammon and Ryan were fresh off a successful standoff with their father Cliven Bundy in Nevada.

 

Here’s a rehash of the Hammonds’ BLM difficulties:

 

According to an October 7, 2015 press release from the Obama Department of Justice, Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr., 73, and his son, Steven Dwight Hammond, 46, both residents of Diamond, Oregon in Harney County, were sentenced to five years in prison by Chief U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken for arsons they committed on federal lands.

The men were charged nearly a decade after the first fire and five years after the second.

 

Oregon Live reports on the fires:

 

The Hammonds’ run-ins with the government began in 1999, when Steven Hammond started a fire that escaped onto U.S. Bureau of Land Management territory. The intent of the fire was to burn off juniper and sagebrush that hindered the growth of grass for their cattle.

BLM employees reminded Steven Hammond that although his family leased public land for grazing, he couldn’t burn it without a permit. But in September 2001, the Hammonds started another fire. This one ran off their property on Steens Mountain, consumed 139 acres of public land and took the acreage out of production for two growing seasons, according to court papers.

Then in August 2006, lightning sparked several fires near the spot where the Hammonds grew their winter feed. Steven Hammond set a back-burn to thwart the advancing flames, and it burned across about an acre of public land, according to federal court records.

 

 

First, both men were sentenced in 2012 by now-retired U.S. District Judge Michael Hogan, following the trial. Steven received one year and a day in prison for setting fires in 2001 and 2006. Dwight got 3 months for his 2001 involvement. Hogan did not believe the men had malicious intent to be labeled as terrorists under the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, even though he sentenced them to jail for the time he did.

 

 

Both men served their sentences and were released. Now, the feds have appealed those sentences and want the mandatory minimum five-year sentence imposed on the men, and so they appealed to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, who agreed with the feds that the judge ruled illegally. However, now they are wanting to label the Hammonds as terrorists under the 1996 law in order to put them back in jail.

 

READ ENTIRETY (Bigger Than Bundy Ranch: Militia put on Level 2 Alert to Defend Oregon Ranchers against Tyrannical Feds Who Label Them Terrorists; By TIM BROWN; Freedom Outpost; 11/24/17)

 

NOW, after this rehash and couple it with the Obama Leftist corrupt regime which pushed much of the BLM land grabbing and rancher persecution; there are HUGE indications that the FBI has become so inculcated with Obama’s Leftist swamp, that they are severely a part of the problem to devastate the property rights of Ranchers.

 

Can you say, Communist redistribution in favor of State management?

SHERIFF BACKS CLAIMS OF FBI-LAWBREAKING IN OREGON STANDOFF

Documentary-makers release more evidence that raises questions

 

By BOB UNRUH

June 29, 2017

WND

 

The Hammond family

 

In a stunning development a year after the standoff at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, where two-dozen armed supporters gathered to protest the courts’ extension of sentences for two ranchers, a sheriff has backed claims of FBI misbehavior.

 

The declaration came from Deschutes County Sheriff Shane Nelson just as FBI agent W. Joseph Astarita was pleading not guilty to three counts of making false statements and two counts of obstruction of justice in federal court in Portland, Oregon.

 

The FBI agent was accused of firing at the protesters, then picking up shell casings to conceal that fact and lying to investigators.

 

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Oregon said Astarita falsely stated he had not fired his weapon during the attempted arrest of protester LaVoy Finicum, who was shot dead by another officer during the incident, “when he knew he had in fact fired his weapon.”

 

“Astarita also knowingly engaged in misleading conduct toward Oregon State Police officers by failing to disclose that he had fired two rounds during the attempted arrest,” the statement said.

 

Nelson said, as the Washington Times reported, that the actions by “multiple members of the FBI Hostage Rescue Team” had “damaged the integrity of the entire law enforcement profession, which makes me both disappointed and angry.”

Nelson said he told Justice Department and FBI officials, including now-acting Director Andrew McCabe, over a year ago about “possible criminal conduct” by some involved FBI Hostage Rescue Team agents.

 

And while the case against Astarita is in court, new evidence also is arising from the makers of an acclaimed documentary about the incident.

 

WND reported earlier on the armed standoff that has been variously described by opponents as “militia terrorism” and by defenders as rebellion against government tyranny.

 

The 41-day standoff ended in mass arrests after law enforcement fatally shot one of the occupiers.

 

The documentary is “American Standoff,” and while it aired previously on DirecTV, it can now be viewed in its entirety at this website. Among the people interviewed in the documentary is best-selling author and WND Vice President David Kupelian.

 

The “American Standoff” story starts with Dwight and Steven Hammond, Oregon ranchers who were controversially convicted and sentenced for setting a controlled land-management fire on their property that went out of control onto federal land. But after they served their sentences and were released, a judge – at a federal prosecutor’s insistence – ordered them back into court, where they were sentenced to further time in prison under an anti-terrorism law, even though there was no evidence presented that the ranchers had planned or engaged in terrorism in any way.

 

Sympathetic ranchers and others – encouraged by the federal government’s stand-down from a previous armed confrontation in Nevada two years earlier on the land of rancher Cliven Bundy – protested the new injustice and ended up staging an armed occupation of the refuge.

 

They succeeded in keeping federal officers at bay until they were finally taken into custody when police staged a highly dangerous highway stop of vehicles carrying the protesters and shot two men.

 

Ryan Bundy, one of Cliven Bundy’s sons, was injured, while LaVoy Finicum was killed.

 

Eventually, seven of the others who were arrested were acquitted of federal charges related to the standoff. The feds even dismissed charges against a self-described independent broadcaster, Peter Santilli, who documented the occupation near Burns, Oregon, but was accused by prosecutors of being part of the protest group.

 

However, one of the FBI agents was charged with serious infractions of the law for the final confrontation. So far, Astarita is the only FBI agent to be indicted.

 

In addition to the feature-length “American Standoff” documentary, director Josh Turnbow and his film-making crew have now produced a series of “Aftermath” short video segments that have been posted online.

 

In the first, Jeanette Finicum, the widow of LaVoy Finicum, explains how the government, after killing her husband, also canceled the lease she needed to continue her family’s ranching operation.

 

She said she has lawyers fighting to restore the lease.

 

And she said a wrongful death case is inevitable against the government after a certain legal time period passes.

 

She insists her husband had his hands in the air and was surrendering but “was murdered.”

 

“He was mowed down in cold blood.”

 

Then, the video explains, the federal agents were “caught on camera, picking up casings before the forensic team arrived at the site of the shooting.”

 

Also, the video shows, Finicum’s gun, which he reportedly had been reaching for, wasn’t found for eight hours after the shooting.

 

“How many people tended to his body without finding it?” the video asks.

Turnbow told WND the “Aftermath” series continues the stories of people affected by the standoff.

In addition to conducting in-depth interviews with nearly everyone involved on all sides of the conflict, Turnbow said he tapped WND’s managing editor, David Kupelian, to offer a journalist’s perspective and analysis.

 

“I think Josh Turnbow did a terrific job in ‘American Standoff,’” said Kupelian, “not just in fairly and sensitively presenting all sides of a complex and troubling situation, but in telling a riveting, deeply thought-provoking true story about today’s America.”

 

Kupelian said the documentary “captures the classic modus operandi of an oppressive government: Perpetrate injustice, provoking widespread public outrage, which always includes a small number of people who seriously overreact and, however well-meaning, do something illegal or irresponsible – and then portray them as the real problem, or in this case as ‘criminals’ and ‘terrorists.’”

 

He said the main provocation in the story was “convicting two Oregon cattle ranchers, a father and son team whose controlled burn on their own property had gotten out of control and migrated onto federal land, with arson under an anti-terrorism statute that mandates a minimum five-year prison sentence.”

 

“Even the presiding judge said such a severe and unjust sentence would ‘shock the conscience.’ Well, it did shock the conscience of a lot of other ranchers – and the Malheur standoff was the result,” he said.

Turnbow said he would like to find out what really happened and consider what the outcome should have been, especially with regard to the still-imprisoned ranchers serving a five-year “terrorism” sentence.

 

“We should be talking about it,” Turnbow says.

 

The larger issue at hand – federal control over land in the American West – continues to loom large.

 

The federal government is the largest landowner in the Rocky Mountain and Western states, owning contiguous parcels of millions of acres.

 

Conflicts between ranchers, who in some instances have owned and worked their land for generations, and a federal government seemingly always hungry for more, are common.

 

President Trump’s recent executive order to review the possibility of shrinking the boundaries of federal monuments could help defuse the longstanding tensions between America’s ranchers and the government.

LEFT PROMOTING MASS DELUSION, SAYS JOURNALIST


As part of the progressive-left influence that Kupelian says is so adversely affecting the nation, Americans are being intimidated, bullied and seduced into accepting a whole slew of false “narratives” as though they represented reality, said Kupelian.

A “narrative,” he said, is just “a nice name for a … mass delusion.”

… I’m saying we have a culture and a presidency in which basically we’re taught there is no God, there is no right and wrong and the biblical morals that this country did pretty well with for several centuries are oppressive and racist and we need to get rid of them!” …

How can a person cope with living in a world of false narratives and dreamlike illusions? Kupelian argues the solution is simple:

“We need to wake up. We just need to wake up.”

He continued: “People tell me, ‘You know, this is a nightmare we’re living in under Obama.’ … It’s true, but there’s only one step away from a nightmare to being awake again. You just have to wake up. You have to put aside these sleepy delusions” that make us feel so comfortable in our dream world, he said. (LEFT PROMOTING MASS DELUSION, SAYS JOURNALIST; By Joseph Farah; WND; 11/11/15)

That is an excerpt from WND’s editorial/promotion of author David Kupelian’s new book about how the Obama/Leftist American transformation agenda is destroying America from within by eradicating everything that has made the USA an exceptional nation in a world of oppressive agendas.

I haven’t read Kupelian’s book yet but I’m going to get a copy.

LEFT PROMOTING MASS DELUSION, SAYS JOURNALIST

Hear ‘Snapping’ author David Kupelian on fast-paced San Francisco broadcast

Listen to David Kupelian’s rapid-fire interview with Brian Sussman on San Francisco’s KSFO Morning Show:

http://player.ooyala.com/iframe.js#ec=psYmhyeDqeaRWPGyiJXjh66IwLFwYKwL&pbid=40d9b99b682e4c5f990d970e4a0828cd

From alleged widespread racism to “Islamophobia” to “gender reassignment,” the way the American left currently portrays many of today’s top issues is not only wrong, says bestselling author David Kupelian, it is an attempt to forcibly replace reality with a series of coveted delusions – commonly called “narratives.”

Kupelian, whose latest book is “The Snapping of the American Mind,” made his comments during a fast-paced drive-time interview with popular San Francisco KSFO radio talker Brian Sussman.

“The statistics are simply mind-melting,” said Kupelian, referring to the astronomical levels of addiction, depression and family breakdown in today’s America, which he ties in his book to the left’s ongoing “fundamental transformation of America.” “One hundred and thirty million people are dependent on legal or illegal mind-altering substances. We’re not talking 130,000. This sounds like all the adults, almost – it’s like [we’re] a nation of addicts!”

As part of the progressive-left influence that Kupelian says is so adversely affecting the nation, Americans are being intimidated, bullied and seduced into accepting a whole slew of false “narratives” as though they represented reality, said Kupelian.

A “narrative,” he said, is just “a nice name for a … mass delusion.”

Kupelian rattled off a few examples of present-day false media narratives:

“Faisal Mohammad wasn’t motivated by jihad.”

“Bruce Jenner is a woman.”

Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, was a victim of racist police – even though it’s proven that he was a predator,” Kupelian added. “He was a punk on drugs who had just knocked off a convenience store and he tried to kill a cop, to grab his gun!” But “it doesn’t matter” to the left, said Kupelian. “You still hear about Ferguson and Michael Brown” as though the mythical “gentle giant” was a victim of trigger-happy, racist cops.

Another delusion-based narrative, said Kupelian, is that “Islam is a religion of peace. I have to tell you, I have about 100 family members who were killed by jihadists during the Armenian Genocide,” said Kupelian. “Islam has not been a religion of peace for the last 14 centuries. And it doesn’t show any signs of beginning now.”

“Where is this all coming from?” Kupelian asked rhetorically.

“We don’t live in a vacuum. … I’m saying we have a culture and a presidency in which basically we’re taught there is no God, there is no right and wrong and the biblical morals that this country did pretty well with for several centuries are oppressive and racist and we need to get rid of them!” He added, “There’s a side of us that feels like this is liberation, but there’s a price to pay. We’re paying the price now.”

Indeed, American politics has become so unhinged, he said, it is hard for normal Americans to even process what is happening.

“Hillary Clinton should be in prison, he noted, adding, “We have this socialist who, God bless Donald Trump, he referred to Bernie Sanders as a ‘communist maniac.'”

He then told Sussman: “I defy your listeners to go to the CPUSA website, Communist Party USA [cpusa.org] … Tell me the difference between the communist – forget socialism, the Communist Party USA – and the Democrat Party. Everything [on the CPUSA site] is ‘war on women,’ ‘racism,’ all the same stuff” over which today’s Democrat Party obsesses, he said.

The result of this political and moral insanity, Kupelian believes, is a kind of massive psychological strain imposed on Americans who find it difficult to live on a diet of lies.

In “The Snapping of the American Mind,” said Kupelian, “I’m connecting the dots between that big picture” of the Obama-left’s “fundamental transformation” of America “and the individual picture of the wretchedness and brokenness and pathology of the 130 million Americans that are dependent on [toxic] substances,” said Kupelian, who contends that leftist deception and intimidation “is actually driving good, unsuspecting Americans over the edge to depression, anger, mental illness, addiction, family breakdown – all the pathology and the wretchedness we see on the individual level which we don’t really attach to politics so much.”

Sussman, who frequently guest-hosts for Michael Savage on “The Savage Nation” and is the author of “Eco-Tyranny: How the Left’s Green Agenda Will Dismantle America,” agreed with Kupelian.

“I hear that all the time!” he exclaimed.

As a talk show host, Sussman said he must often guard his listeners from everything that’s happening.

“If I just gave them the news of the day, people would be crashing their cars,” he joked. “Their minds are about to snap. ‘I can’t take this anymore.’ And I think you’re nailing it with this book.”

But it can be hard to break away from an all-encompassing media culture. Misspeaking for a moment, Kupelian said, “Bruce Jenner is still a woman,” when he meant to say Jenner is still a man.

Realizing his mistake, he laughed, “Oh no, they’ve gotten to me!”

Sussman chortled, “It’s gotten to you as well, your mind has snapped, David!”

Jokes aside, Kupelian’s message is deadly serious. And for those who actually want to help troubled people, he has simple advice – stick to reality. He affirmed the biological impossibility of “sex change” – or to use today’s euphemism, “gender reassignment” – citing the finding of the former psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital that changing genders is “biologically impossible.”

“This is a controversial thing to say, especially in San Francisco,” Kupelian advised. “You cannot transition from one sex to the other. An adult male has about 37 trillion cells. Every one of them is permanently branded with Y [male] chromosomes.”

Kupelian said going along with transgenderism and other absurdities amounts to encouraging mental illness. As he put it, if a pathologically skinny anorexic woman thinks she is fat – a common syndrome among anorexics – “we don’t need to pretend she is fat.”

How can a person cope with living in a world of false narratives and dreamlike illusions? Kupelian argues the solution is simple:

“We need to wake up. We just need to wake up.”

He continued: “People tell me, ‘You know, this is a nightmare we’re living in under Obama.’ … It’s true, but there’s only one step away from a nightmare to being awake again. You just have to wake up. You have to put aside these sleepy delusions” that make us feel so comfortable in our dream world, he said.

In the end, Sussman told his listeners, “I want to promote this book heavily. David, great book, and it’s flying off the shelves as I would expect.”

Kupelian’s "How Evil Works" shines bright


How Evil Works bk jkt

Sometimes I run into book reviews/marketing ploys that are simply worth the effort to cross post. If it piques my curiosity I suspect it will also draw other curious eyes. This is the case of Matt Barber’s review of David Kupelian’s sequel to the “Marketing of Evil” called “How Evil Works”.
 
The Barber review was sent in a WorldNetDaily marketing email that of course included other book products available for purchase. I am just sharing the “How Evil Works” review and the offer to purchase the “Marketing of Evil” as well.

Kupelian’s “How Evil Works” shines bright

I’m a tremendous fan of author and Christian apologist C.S. Lewis. Rarely does one find a writer who can elucidate so profoundly, as could he, the stark contrast between secular humanism – “materialism,” as Lewis called it – and the Judeo-Christian worldview. Seldom does one come across a wordsmith capable of so effectively, objectively and concisely distinguishing between good and evil.

I’ve found that wordsmith.

 
My wife, Sarah, and I were listening to the radio a few months back as Sean Hannity interviewed an author about his latest publication. The book was “How Evil Works,” but we were unable to ascertain, for some time, its author’s identity. We were immediately drawn into the discussion as this mystery guest waxed wise about what he called man’s “millennia-old blind spot” – namely, the existence of evil, how it works and why it destroys us.


I was amazed by the speaker’s insights into this “radioactive topic.” “Wow, this guy really gets it,” I told Sarah. She nodded in agreement, either unwilling or unable to take her attention away from the show long enough to answer. Finally – and for the benefit of us late arrivals – Sean divulged the identity of his guest: It was best-selling author and award-winning journalist David Kupelian.
 
I was no longer surprised.

David continued. He spoke of how America – once the moral guidepost to the world – had, “over time … abandoned its original principles,” only now to suffer from great “moral confusion.”

He spoke of a president, “wearing a mask,” who is “deceptive from morning till night.” A president who, “taking us where we don’t want to go, has to lie about where he’s taking us.”

“Those in power talk an awful lot like those we used to fight,” he said.

That was it. “We’ve got to get this book,” I insisted. Sarah agreed.

I don’t often do book reviews (this is my first in fact), but after reading “How Evil Works,” I felt compelled to put pen to paper. Whereas Kupelian’s conversation with Hannity stopped me in my tracks, his book took it to the next level. It was simply outstanding.

I guess the best way to describe it is to say that “How Evil Works” has the same effect on your brain that yawning has on your ears at high altitude. Things just suddenly pop with crystal clarity.

Throughout “Evil’s” pages David meticulously unpacks today’s most pressing issues, providing unassailable answers to some of our most critical questions. For instance:

 
o   Where have all the statesmen gone – and why do politicians lie?
 
o   Why are so many Americans abandoning their Christian roots and embracing atheism and the occult?
 
o   What drives terrorists to kill?
 
o   How are psychological and spiritual problems linked, and why do we medicate ourselves into zombies?
 
o   Why do people who seem to have everything so often self-destruct and end up with nothing?
 
o   How can we turn it all around and return this great nation to her God-fearing ways?
 
And many more.

In recent days, I was on a flight to Oklahoma City. As I read the last page of “Evil” and placed it in the seat flap in front of me, a 15-year-old girl sitting to my side asked: “So how does evil work?” What an opening! “Well, this book explains it a lot better than I can,” I replied.

For several minutes we discussed worldview and our horribly failing culture. Turns out she was on her way to a missions trip in Jamaica. She mentioned that, like with me, C.S. Lewis was one of her favorite authors. I chuckled and asked: “You’re homeschooled, aren’t you?”

Indeed she was, but explained that in the fall she was attending public school for the first time. “I want to get in there and be salt and light,” she said.

“Well then,” I replied, “take this with you. If you love C.S. Lewis, you won’t be able to put it down.” I handed her “How Evil Works.” She smiled ear-to-ear, she thanked me and we went our separate ways. I’m quite certain that, having read Kupelian’s book, her salt will be that much saltier and her light just a bit brighter.

 
########

o   How does terrorism really work?
 
o   Why are neo-pagan and New Age religions like Wicca becoming so popular?
 
o   Why do so many politicians and entertainment celebrities end up self-destructing?
 
o   Why are big lies more believable than little ones?
 
o   Why are boys doing worse in school today than girls?
 
o   Why do we treat mental-emotional-spiritual problems like rage and depression with drugs?
 
 
 
Hannity: ‘I couldn’t put it down’
 
“How Evil Works” was introduced to the nation by Sean Hannity, who told his audience, “This is a powerful book … I couldn’t put it down.”
 
 
Hannity’s assessment of “How Evil Works” mirrors that of others who have read it. Legendary radio talk-show host Barry Farber expressed it in his typical, colorful style: “With the unapologetic outrage of a saint and the fearless fury of a General Patton, here comes David Kupelian turning a blowtorch of good upon the putrid cobwebs of evil. Do you remember removing the back of a clock to look into the workings? In ‘How Evil Works,’ Kupelian lets us look directly into evil itself. There it is – every tick, every tock, every trick, every shock. Kupelian doesn’t rest with ‘Sunlight is the best disinfectant.’ He prefers the scorch-light.”
 
Chuck Norris praises “How Evil Works” in his latest column, “I believe in the resurrection of America,” saying: “David Kupelian, in his new insightful treatise on what truly lurks behind the troubles in government and America, ‘How Evil Works,’ notes that we’ve been ‘seduced’ to believe that ‘the self-evident truths’ the founders relied upon are just outdated and dangerous myths.” “No wonder,” Kupelian says, “millions of Americans have gradually been demoralized into depending upon government to solve all of their problems, fueling today’s uncontrolled, cancer-like growth in government.”
 
WND founder and editor Joseph Farah sizes it up this way: “Thoreau said, ‘There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.’ In his tour de force ‘How Evil Works,’ WND Managing Editor David Kupelian strikes at evil’s root with devastating effectiveness, building on the revelations in his classic best-seller The Marketing of Evil,’ No library is complete without both the original and the dazzling sequel.”
 
And No. 1 New York Times best-selling author Jerome R. Corsi, Ph.D., says: ‘How Evil Works’ is fresh, original, and startlingly insightful. David Kupelian reveals the hidden mechanisms that allow lies and deception to take root in modern America. A truly important book.”
 
 
New! “How Evil Works” is also available as an audiobook version on eight CDs.
