While many of the news reports in the United States are concentrating on how legally owned weapons represent a threat to our society as a whole, and while the politicians tirelessly call for gun control policies, little attention has been given to the fact that both shooters — in Aurora Colorado and in Wisconsin — had been reported as showing suspicious behavior weeks before the attacks occurred. What happened to ‘if you see something say something’ crap? That’s right. The Feds knew that both of these men — James Holmes and Michael Page — were potential psychos, but did nothing to stop the shootings.
In the case of Holmes, his psychiatrist, who is in part responsible for prescribing dangerous medications which have been proven to turn patients into violent animals, had contacted Colorado University police to report concerns about her patient’s behavior at least a few weeks before the attack. In reporting Holmes’ strange behavior, Dr. Lynne Fenton went as far as violating the doctor-patient confidentiality agreement, that resulted in no action, apparently, by university police. The officer who spoke to Ms. Fenton has now been interviewed by members of the Aurora Police Department as part of their fact-finding mission.
A few questions can be raised from the first salvo previous to the Aurora movie theater attack. For example, what kind of medication was Dr. Fenton drugging Holmes with, that may have triggered his violent behavior? The question is not rhetorical, since the use of well-known psychiatric medications has been proven to cause violent behavior in patients. Among those drugs are: Ritalin, Paxil, Zoloft, Prozac, etc. The main reaction caused by these and other drugs is homicidal behavior. The effects of the drugs given to Holmes were seen even during his court appearance, when he was present only physically, but not mentally.
In addition to reporting Holmes’ weird behavior to university police, his psychiatrist also spoke with members of the university’s threat-assessment team. At this point, it seems that such team never met formally or informally to talk about Holmes’ potential threat or to assess the concerns presented by Ms. Fenton. After the shooting, the University of Colorado has refused to describe what kind of action was taken, if any, by the institution or the police with the information provided by Fenton. They cite the existence of a gag order issued by a court. Why would a court order be issued to prohibit them to provide information to the press about the case? Is it not this the job of the university’s legal team to gauge whether it is a good idea or not?
The last statement issued by Colorado University said that campus police often meets with the threat assessment team to discuss “safety issues including security matters, badge access, background checks, wellness checks, criminal investigations and referrals to law enforcement agencies.”
Holmes’ case is clearly one of a man who was doped with drugs that have been proven to cause violent behavior and that has certainly more to do with his attack at the Aurora movie theater than the fact that he was the legal owner of firearms. However, U.S. law enforcement agencies and politicians have taken the opportunity to call for more gun ownership legislation that would leave Americans without the possibility to legally purchase guns to defend themselves from wackos like James Holmes. As it has been shown in this case, police cannot keep everyone safe at all times, and it should be each individual’s responsibility to take care of his or her safety.
The other case that law enforcement agencies also failed to follow carefully, and that just so happens to have ended in another shooting, is the case of the Sikh Temple shooting, Wade Michael Page. In Mr. Page’s case, police had also been warned about his strange behavior previous to the attack, but again failed to stop him from carrying it out. Page had been looked into by Federal investigators because of his ties to racist extremist groups. They would later drop any investigation because they thought there wasn’t enough evidence to continue watching him.
Page’s attack has been labeled as a case of domestic terrorism by the media and some left-wing extremist organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center, although officially he was not being investigated by any federal law enforcement agency for any crimes whatsoever. Although the FBI is in theory prohibited from surveilling people not accused of committing a crime, government outfits like the SPLC are legally allowed to do so, and this information can be then fed to law enforcement agencies. The SPLC is well-known for calling for censorship of journalists and other people who call themselves conservatives or libertarians and who demonstrate opposition to government policies.
Page’s case is another example of how federal agents dropped the ball and were unable to uncover his plans to carry out the Sikh Temple attack.
Now to the issues that are hidden behind the fog of censorship.
Both James Holmes and Wade Michael Page had close connections to the government. In the case of Holmes, he was the recipient of a $26,000 government grant — offered to him through the National Institutes for Health — for the specific purpose of studying Neuroscience. The National Institutes of Health is a component agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This relationship makes Holmes’ mass killing a painful example of taxpayer-funded homicide. But the details about Holmes get even stranger. According to Journalist Wayne Madsen, there are more links between James Holmes and American government research, such as the the Salk Institute, a place involved with neurologically enhancing soldiers’ abilities on the battlefield, which also has connections with the US Defense Advance Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
From Madsen’s article James Holmes Family Tied To DARPA And Mind Manipulation Work:
In 2006, at the age of 18, Holmes served as a research intern at the Salk Institute at the University of California at San Diego in La Jolla. It is noteworthy that for the previous two years before Holmes worked at the Salk Institute, the research center was partnered with the Defense Advance Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Columbia University, University of California at San Francisco, University of Wisconsin at Madison, Wake Forest University, and the Mars Company (the manufacturers of Milky Way and Snickers bars) to prevent fatigue in combat troops through the enhanced use of epicatechina, a blood flow-increasing and blood vessel-dilating anti-oxidant flavanol found in cocoa and, particularly, in dark chocolate.
The research was part of a larger DARPA program known as the “Peak Soldier Performance Program,” which involved creating brain-machine interfaces for battlefield use, including human-robotic bionics for legs, arms, and eyes. DARPA works closely with the Defense Science Office on projects that include the medical research community. Fitzsimons was at the forefront of DARPA research on the use of brain-connected “neuroprosthetic” limbs for soldiers amputated or paralyzed in combat.
In the case of Wade Michael Page, his connections to government programs are also clear and very direct. Up until 1998, Page was a US Army Psy-Op specialist. Psychological Operations are an important part of the US Army. In fact, they are conducted all the time. Page held his position at Fort Bragg until he was given a less-than-honorable discharge.
How can a former army man, who has associations to racist organizations and who has deep knowledge about psy-ops, not be investigated by law enforcement agencies? How can an admittedly racist person be employed by the US Army to work on and / or conduct psy-ops? Furthermore, the first shooting in Aurora was conducted by a Neuroscience student and the latest in Wisconsin by a former psy-ops military man. What are the odds? Well, whatever the odds are, they get even more difficult to believe, because both psychological operations and neuroscience are dedicated to conduct brain manipulation. Is this just another coincidence?
There is another coincidence we will never be able to know about, and that is if after conducting psychiatric evaluations on both of the shooters they discover that Holmes and Page were under mind control. That will never be known because one of the shooters, Mr. Page, was conveniently shot dead — another coincidence — on sight by a police officer and authorities are convinced he, just as they believed in the cases of Lee Harvey Oswald and Timothy Mc Veigh, was a lone wolf. So that is where the investigation ends, even though in both shootings, witnesses reported the presence of more gunmen besides Holmes and Page. But that of course is just a conspiracy theory.
