I was just responding to the question of "what is happening in the U.S?"

I didn't said it was a disinfo campaign, so you probably should be directing your assumptions to the OP.

And CNN still has a gigantic headline of the shooting, and not a single mention of the Strzok/Page testimony.

Are you surprised?

So? FOX was running the same story this morning between 6 and 7AM. I was flipping between the two and it was nonstop shooting coverage on both networks.

Fox already covered the Strzok and Page testimony yesterday.

CNN never mentioned it and will probably be talking about the shooting for a week.

Not talking about yesterday, the Original Post was about today.

Too much violence in the world. I hope there were no children in the list of victims.

It hit the news yesterday so there should be talking points for the next few days about the corruption being exposed in the Obama government.

Now the MSM who don't want this information out, has a new narrative to air 24/7. That was the point of the OP.

Except they are a day ahead of us so the shooting actually happened on our Thursday. There's this thing called the International Dateline.

Either way, I think this is a larger news story anyhow, the Page/Strozk testimony isn't going anywhere, it will be here when this story begins to fade.

I think what OP was saying is the US news is 100% focused on the NZ tragedy and ignoring all the newly unsealed documents showing the FBI and Obama DOJ broke dozens of laws on their phony investigation of Trump and cover up of Hillary.

To take it a step further, was the tragedy in NZ orchestrated at just this time to give the MSM something else to focus on. Just like when Clinton bombed an aspirin factory to distract from his Monica news cycles.

This is a conspiracy site, and it is a conspiracy.

I imagine you really believe what you're saying, but I just want to chime in about a couple of things politely.

-This happened, and it was horrific. It's important that the global community talks about it, and in turn, that will lead to support efforts for that community. It's more than the money donated, it is humanity reaching out to strangers to show we feel for them... Maybe that doesn't mean much to them in this trying time, maybe it means everything.

-Families are devastated, the immediate impact is much more than news of another of many instances of wrongdoing by the US government.

-There are plenty of sources online, if people want to watch entertainment media (newzz), that's their choice. History should have taught everyone that there information has always been a war. If we don't know that than we as humanity haven't gotten very far.

But in conclusion, we see this argument come up often times about a tragedy being used to cover something else up.... Ironically, I personally believe it's the opposite, I believe that political partisan talking points masks the tragedies to all of humanity by keeping us distracted on two chitty teams like ancient Rome distracted their citizens with sporting events.

Just looked at CNN and this is not mentioned in US news and is not even the headline story for World news so, no.

And I was just responding to your comment specifically and the thread in general.


I didn't said it was a disinfo campaign, so you probably should be directing your assumptions to the OP.


I didn’t say you did. I said I doubt a shooting in New Zealand is evidence of a disinformation campaign. You should probably read what I write instead of assuming what I must be assuming.


And CNN still has a gigantic headline of the shooting, and not a single mention of the Strzok/Page testimony.


I’m sure CNN was like, super duper desperate for something to happen 12 hours later on the other side of the world so they could put up a banner and a crawler and continue to not cover something they wouldn’t cover in the first place. Totally.

I absolutely agree. It is a tragedy and we need to talk about it. I never claimed it was a false flag attack, I was just trying to clarify the OP position, because I've seen him posting it in different threads.

But we shouldn't automatically believe anything the media sells us, anyhow.

Independent research needs to be done and you can't rule anything out. There's just too many coincidences for one to instantly dismiss the possibility that some bad actors are trying to divert attention to something else.

As they probably did when they announced the 2.3$ trillion dollars missing one day before 9/11.

I don't believe in coincidences that much. But I won't be taking this huge leap to label it a false flag attack, until I see evidences or at least indications of so.

I figured you weren't coming from a place of malice. That's why I was trying not to be rude and just offer discussion.

I just wanted to throw some context points out into the discussion.

But mainly, my main message is that we should really have tact while the facts come out.

Everyone has been caught letting emotion and bias get the best of them and jump to conclusions based of such. I think we can all work to get better at that.

Personally I feel it is too early to play with hypotheticals... But it happens every time a tragedy plagues this world, so I don't expect it to stop now.

Well, you quoted me so I did assumed you were assuming something, yes.

And yes, CNN was probably desperate to something for happen to cover it. Didn't you know this is how the Mainstream Media works?

Not sure what you're getting at? Unless you are just referring to the generally suspicious nature of every mass shooting of any significance that happens anywhere. If so, I don't really know what to make of that except that I always found it....fishy. No way to really know what to think. I just ask myself who benefits from any given news story and that usually steers me into a general idea of why it seems fishy.

It feels like I've wasted precious time skimming through this thread looking for an answer.

Here is something for you, it took me a minute to dig up.

"But New Zealand has been chosen because we are not a place where violent extremism exists." As states by the prime minister of New Zealand. Chosen by whom ? There you go.

What is the majority of the members on this thread’s problem?

This seems like a perfectly reasonable above top secret conspiracy post.
And we’ve seen these types of false flag cover ups happen before.

What, people died so we shouldn’t investigate because people died?

You sound like my less imaginative friends on 9/11. “Dude just shut up with the conspiracy stuff. This is a terrible tragedy”
Flash forward to today - “dude you were right about 9/11”

I mean, do you members not like the op member or something?
Thought this was a motha fracking conspiracy site!

I think there is a difference between talking about conspiracies when you have factual data compiled to point to an alternate explanation than the official story and throwing out hypotheticals while bodies still have residual heat.

Tact sir, tact.

When posters jump into these tragedies straight off claiming staged event with actors etc it is is lacking any respect for the dead and injured and their family and loved ones.

Tact, indeed, and common decency. Or can that just go out of the window?

It's also a load of ill informed bollox, mostly.
