GLADIO: Orlando Shooting, Still No Evidence – By Paul Craig Roberts

– “…the government lied to us about Saddam Hussein, Assad, and Libya. These lies have kept us at work destroying Muslim countries for 15 years, with a consequence that Europe is being overrun with refugees from our wars based on nothing but the government’s lies. It is not an unreasonable conclusion that a government that will lie to us about Iraq, Libya, Syria, the economic condition of the country and that will lie to the 9/11 Commission might also lie to us about Boston, Sandy Hook, San Bernandino, and Orlando”:

(Orlando Shooting: Still No Evidence – By Paul Craig Roberts)

In response to my challenge (“Orlando Shooting”) readers report that they have found no evidence of bodies or blood. One person reports that a TV station posted names of some victims, which is the way the absence of Sandy Hook bodies was handled.
One person who said he is a veteran said the AR-15 can have a 30-round clip. That would mean four reloadings in order to shoot 103 people. The veteran said that the rifle can be reloaded in 5 seconds: one clip is dropped out, another put in, and the bolt released. But 5 seconds is not fast enough to prevent being rushed. Remember, sprinters can cover 100 yards—300 feet—in less than 10 seconds. Ordinary people who are not couch potatoes can cover 300 feet in 20 seconds. That means they can cover 150 feet in 10 seconds or 75 feet in 5 seconds or 15 feet in 1 second.. In the crowded club, people were likely no more than 10 feet from the shooter, 20 feet at the most.

Moreover, if there is only one shooter, he can be rushed in an arc that he cannot possibly cover. It is difficult to imagine that there were no veterans in the club, no people aware that guns run out of bullets and have to be reloaded and that so many people would miss four opportunities to disarm the shooter. It is hard to imagine that none of the hundreds of people present were capable of presence of mind. Bottles could be thrown at him, glasses, chairs. And no one did anything?

Mainly what readers have reported is evidence that the Orlando shooting is a hoax. One reader sent me a video in which a skeptic uses a RT video to show that the same three allegedly injured people, who so far are the only victims we have been shown, are being carried toward the night club, not away from it:
Another person sent a video that shows the man with the red shoes who is being carried is put down after the camera walk-by:
Here are readers reporting their inability to find any real evidence. Somehow 103 people were shot and there is no visible evidence:
Dear Mr. Roberts, in response to your request for evidence regarding the Orlando shooting, I held my nose and forced myself to watch about an hour and a half of fox and cnn. No blood whatsoever. Nothing real about any of the videos or stupid interviews with alleged victims. I knew we were being lied to the first night when Fox News trotted out Bernard Kerik. We know that traitor lied to us about 911. Why would we believe anything that evil bastard said about this event. Thanks for such a great article. You really nailed it. Dutch
 
I was watching one of the networks at a local eatery. My working assumption on these mass shootings is that they are fake, either entirely so, as you mildly suggest in your latest article, or perpetrated by government informants. The cameo profiles of victims began appearing on TV last night, as my wife and I sat at a bar-restaurant eating chicken wings. Who believes this stuff? Pepe Escobar and others are also articulating skepticism on their Facebook pages. Is this a distraction from some important stuff going down at Bilderberg?
 
Thank you for your great work. I agree with your take on Orlando, San Bernardino, etc. Do you think there is a legal way to expose the people that perform these fictitious acts (I.e perhaps class action lawsuits against the crisis actors, etc.)? Thanks again for all your efforts. Husni
 
A fat, crying woman under shock yells out a detailed story to the cameras, without stopping. It seems she practiced the script for a week or so. Such poor acting just causes pity. Someone should have said : ” Madame, please slow down. Fetch your script and come back for a second take, OK ?”
 
It took 3 hours for the police to proceed with an assault. 53 wounded people lay officially inside the establishment, crying for help. Are there recordings of these desperate yells? Fifty three folks!
 
I searched Orlando on You Tube (easy, fast, no sound, and no blood). Thank God, actually.
Was wondering what your take is on this. Veterans Today has it as most likely another false flag. Like you pointed out, many groups to benefit from this. The DEMS are pushing hard for gun control, Israel is ecstatic of more hatred towards Muslims, the DOD loves more war money, and the beat goes on. I was looking for ambulances and paramedics, but saw none. Then the BOZO, known as the President here, gets on TV asap and pushes gun control, never mentions anything else. He was cold and remorseless, and walked away fast.
 
Meanwhile, the Congress and President and Homeland Insecurity are bringing in crateloads of questionable immigrants, some handled by religious groups no less (raking in the dough).

I have not seen any evidence, but I am a bit ’over-the-hill’ (62 yrs old) when it comes to comprehensive internet searches. However, I asked my computer savvy 24 yr-old son, and he has not found any videos of the carnage inside nor out. He did suggest to me that if anyone did capture anything on their cell phone, etc., that the police/authorities would immediately confiscate it. I don’t know though… Please let us peons know if you find anything remotely credible. thank you PCR
I appreciate readers bringing to my attention more evidence that suggests we are witnessing another drill, like the announced drill at the Boston Marathon, turned into a fake terrorist attack. That indeed might be what the Orlando shooting was. However, remember, our purpose is not to disprove the official story, but to find evidence in its behalf.
So far all we have are official statements and testimony by what seem to be crisis actors. 103 people cannot be shot without there being real evidence.
It has to be somewhere.
My cautionary statement was that we should not believe massive terrorist attacks without evidence, especially when we know for an absolute fact that the government lied to us about Saddam Hussein, Assad, and Libya. These lies have kept us at work destroying Muslim countries for 15 years, with a consequence that Europe is being overrun with refugees from our wars based on nothing but the government’s lies.
It is not an unreasonable conclusion that a government that will lie to us about Iraq, Libya, Syria, the economic condition of the country and that will lie to the 9/11 Commission might also lie to us about Boston, Sandy Hook, San Bernandino, and Orlando.
My point is simply that we are given stories based not on visible evidence but on claims. These kind of events have to leave massive evidence, but somehow it is not visible.
To recap, we are trying to see if we can find real evidence that supports the official story. We are not trying to disprove the official story but to prove it.
If we cannot prove the story, we are entitled to disbelieve it.

Orlando gay-club shooting: Some pieces that don’t fit – By  

Anomaly =df

  • Something that deviates from what is standard, normal, or expected.
  • Synonyms: oddity, inconsistency, incongruity, aberration.
Below are some anomalies — the pieces that don’t fit — in the official narrative of the deadliest shooting in U.S. history at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, in the early morning hours of June 12, 2016, which left 49 dead and 53 wounded.

1. EYEWITNESSES REPORT MULTIPLE SUSPECTS

We are told there was only one shooter, 29-year-old Omar Mateen who, according to his ex-wife, turns out to be a homosexual himself who frequented gay bars and had a gay hookup app, Grindr.
The problem is at least three eyewitnesses who were in the Pulse nightclub at the time of the shooting, all said there was more than one suspect.
Eyewitness #1: In an audio interview (below), after an eyewitness said, “There was a guy there that was trying to…prevent the door, like hold the door closed so that we couldn’t exit,” he was abruptly cut off.
Eyewitness #2: Another eyewitness said the shooting lasted “like eight minutes.” Beginning at the 0:29 mark in video below, when asked by the reporter if there was “somebody else,” the eyewitness said: “I’m pretty sure it was more than one person. Like I said, I heard two guns going at the same time.
Later, at the 1:41 mark, as he described how he and some 50 other patrons were trying to flee the club, jammed in a narrow pathway, he also said there was a second suspect — “a guy kind of holding door,” preventing them from exiting.
Eyewitness #3: A victim of the shooting who played dead for several hours during the attack as a way to stay alive, told an ABC reporter after he was discharged from a local hospital that he had overheard a phone conversation made by the shooter, in which the shooter said he was the “fourth shooter” and that there were “three others” — “snipers” and a “female suicide bomber”. (Source: Intellihub)
Below are screenshots of tweets to ABC News asking why ABC News had deleted an earlier tweet that there were other shooters, and a survivor’s account of two other killers.

Tweets to ABC News2. THE LAUGHING POLICEMAN

Remember Sandy Hook’s laughing chief medical examiner Wayne Carver andthe smiling police officer standing behind him? The Orlando shooting has one too!
In the video below beginning at the 0:21 mark, as a spokesman talks to the press about the Orlando shooting casualties, a policeman with spectacles, grey hair and moustache stands behind him, grinning and laughing. Who knew a shooting massacre can be funny?

3. CRISIS ACTOR

A man named Luis Burbano claims to be an eyewitness in the club and was interviewed by several media outlets, including ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos.
It turns out eyewitness Luis Burbano is a professional actor. He has aprofile on IMDb . Below are side-by-side comparison of Luis Burbano in the ABC interview (left) and Luis Burbano on IMDb. It’s the same man.
Luis Burbano (2)You would think that in the media interviews about the Orlando shooting, Burbano would take the opportunity to give his career a boost by identifying himself as a professional actor, but he didn’t.
IMDb lists 5 acting credits under Burbano’s “Filmography,” the most recent one being his role as a “club patron” in a 2015 video called “Spirit of Orlando: Shooting Up”. You can’t make this up!
Here’s a screenshot I took from IMDb:
Luis Burbano
IMDb describes “Spirit of Orlando: Shooting Up” as a 5-minute music video, dated September 25, 2015, in which Burbano stars as a “club patron,” with other actors playing the parts of the boss and employees of PharmaCorp Inc. LLC.

4. PRE-DATED TWEETS AND NEWS REPORTS

As in Sandy Hook, there are tweets and news articles about the Orlando shooting which are dated June 11, 2016, a day BEFORE the shooting.

5. SHOOTING VICTIMS BEING CARRIED TOWARD PULSE NIGHTCLUB

Here’s a video about shooting victims being carried TOWARD, not away from, Pulse nightclub — which makes no sense whatsoever, unless those images were all staged, i.e., theatrics.

Orlando: Questions and Anomalies Surround ‘Worst Mass Shooting in U.S. History’ – By Vivian Lee

Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 9.02.38 PM

Scene from the Orlando “shooting,” one of many showing no evidence to support the story. Image: CNN
The “worst mass shooting in U.S. history” is reported to have occurred between 2 am and 5 am on Sunday morning, June 12, at Pulse, a nightclub in Orlando, Florida. The “act of terror” is said to have produced 49 dead and 53 injured. A 50th death was that of the “shooter,” identified as Omar Seddique Mateen, who was employed as a security guard since 2007 by the giant multinational security company G4S. The circumstances of the Orlando “massacre” are suspicious to say the least, with many details fitting into the existing playbook for staged shootings occurring across the U.S.
G4S, the world’s largest security company by revenue, has its US headquarters in Jupiter, Florida, but operates in “more than 100 countries,” with “more than 50,000 employees in the United States.” G4S “has the international reach and resources to meet the security needs of the global age.”[1] The company has expressed its condolences over the tragic event and is cooperating “fully” with the FBI and other agencies who are investigating the “unspeakable tragedy.”
Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 9.02.52 PM

Image: G4S.us
According to Judicial Watch, G4S is involved in a DHS operation to move illegal immigrants (“other than Mexicans”) north across the Mexican border into Arizona, releasing them without proper processing.[2] Perhaps this is the reason that Mateen, reportedly interviewed by the FBI in 2013 and 2014, was able to keep his security clearance and gun permits although he was supposedly under investigation for possible terrorist ties.[3]
But who was Mateen, and did he actually perpetrate “the deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11”? In light of the many questions and anomalies associated with the event, it seems doubtful that the Orlando “shooting” occurred as presented by the media. Glaring problems include the following:
– By Sunday evening, the “dead” were still supposedly inside the night club – just like the kids reportedly left inside the Sandy Hook school. Did they not take them to the hospital? Where’s the emergency protocol? (CNN)
– News reports claimed that by Sunday evening only a few of the dead had been identified. But doesn’t everyone who frequents a bar carry an ID? By 8 pm Monday the names were in – read tearfully on the air by Anderson Cooper (CNN) and listed in full on Wikipedia.[4]
Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 9.03.07 PM

A “victim” being carried away by non-professionals. Image: CNN
– News footage shows no dead people, or even visibly injured people, no ambulances rushing to the scene, no colored triage tarps, no EMTs swarming the site, or anything else that might prove the “massacre” actually occurred as reported. A few “injured victims” are shown casually walked or carried away from the club, with one dumped into the back of a pickup for transport to the hospital. Such scenes were played over and over on television. As with the Sandy Hook “shooting,” we are supposed to believe the reports, despite the clear lack of evidence. (CNN)
– To make up for this lack, we have a parade of witnesses, sobbing without tears and giving unconvincing performances, as seen with many recent false flag events. These include Luis Burbano, who gave interviews to several media outlets soon after the Orlando “shooting.” Like Carlos Arredondo of Boston Marathon fame, Burbano became the face of courage under duress, reportedly removing his shirt to wrap it around a man’s arm and tying another piece of his clothing to a man’s leg.[5]
In his CNN interview, he said he put a “syringe” on the man’s arm – but then corrected this to say it was a tourniquet.[6] Like Arredondo, Burbano is an actor, with several films to his credit.[7]
Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 9.03.17 PM

– Interviews by assorted officials also sound scripted and strange. These include State Senator Geraldine Thompson, who tells us she is the senator for the district that includes the Pulse night club “in Tallahassee” – although Pulse is actually in Orlando. (CNN)
– Drills were involved, as with many false flag events (more on this subject is sure to come). Oddly, the June 13 online edition of the Orlando Sentinelhighlighted an article originally published in 2015, regarding a drill to prepare nurses for mass casualties.[8]
– Almost immediately, fund-raising efforts were underway on behalf of the “victims,” as is familiar from other staged events. Patty Sheehan, Orlando City Commissioner, assures us that there are already people out there raising money. In less than 24 hours, a fundraising page set up for the “victims” had raised $1.3 million, and surely more will roll in.[9]
– Also familiar are the online posts that precede the event, documented in Yahoo listings for articles about the Orlando “shooting” that are dated June 11, one day earlier.[10] This was the case for other false flag events, notably the Sandy Hook “shooting.”
– As for “the shooter,” Omar Seddique Mateen (alternately Omar Saddiqui Mateen) was a Florida resident, born in New York, with parents from Afghanistan, who was reportedly anti-gay (according to his father). His family is more than suspicious, with his father, Seddique Mateen, supposedly running for the presidency of Afghanistan, and well acquainted with U.S. Congressmen and officials in the State Department.[11]
Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 9.03.31 PM

– Omar Mateen was supposedly on the FBI’s radar, as already mentioned, but somehow the feds didn’t connect the dots. This is a common trope with all U.S. false flag events, beginning with 9/11. We are supposed to believe that the intelligence behemoth just doesn’t have the capabilities to recognize a terrorist threat, despite more than $50 billion allocated per year to the 16 intel agencies.[12] As with Boston Marathon “bomber,” Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Mateen was known to the authorities, who let him proceed unfettered.
– Mateen wreaked havoc with “at least two guns,” a Sig Sauer AR-15 style assault rifle and a Glock handgun. This fits the weapons profile of other alleged perpetrators of “mass shooting” events, including Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik (San Bernardino) and Adam Lanza (Sandy Hook).[13]
– Most of these “mass killers” have bought their guns legally, obtaining licenses and passing background checks. According to the New York Times article cited above, “at least eight gunmen had criminal histories or documented mental health problems that did not prevent them from obtaining their weapons.” Mateen is no exception, fitting the profile perfectly, exhibiting “mental health problems,” according to his ex-wife, who supposedly had to be rescued from the marriage by her parents.[14]
– Mateen has been judged “self radicalized” and a lone-wolf, home-grown terrorist – by all news sources. This was the case with other “terrorist” actors, including the San Bernardino “shooters.” Marco Rubio went on record to say that homegrown terrorism is the biggest threat our country faces – his fear is that “we’re gonna see more of this.” (CNN) And no doubt we will.
Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 9.03.46 PM

– All sources have reported that Mateen called 911 at 20 minutes into the attack and pledged allegiance to ISIS (over the phone) and also mentioned the “Boston bombers” as inspiration. (The tape has not been released.) This is patently ridiculous: did no one in the club think to jump the “killer” as he took time out to make this call? This kind of exhibitionism – serving to identify the perpetrator and associate him/her with the terrorist organization of choice – was seen in the Paris Charlie Hebdo caper, with Amedy Coulibaly calling BFMTV from the kosher Hyper Cacher Supermarket to tell them his name and announce his connection to the Islamic extremist Kouachi brothers .[15]
– Finally, Mateen was conveniently killed by the police (or was he?), with only one officer sustaining a hit – but luckily the bullet was deflected by his Kevlar helmet. This has occurred with virtually all other false flag rampages, a notable exception being the Boston Marathon “bombing,” with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev reported captured and in prison – unless he was actually killed while hiding in the boat.
One can find many other correspondences between the various staged events, with the Orlando “shooting” fitting comfortably into the paradigm. In each case, a saddened President Obama makes a heart-wrenching statement to the press, in some instances seeming to weep. In his words, Orlando was “an act of terror and an act of hate.”[16] But love will prevail – as we are reminded again and again.
Here, as always, the agenda is multi-purpose: gun control, mental health supervision, increased surveillance of the populace, bolstering of the intelligence services, militarization of local law enforcement, further commitment to the “War on Terror” whether abroad or at home, and, in this case, the LGBT program – in a strategy devised by the elites and programmed by the media, with the people used as dupes.

Orlando terrorist-killer Omar Mateen worked for security firm with DHS contract to identify suspected terrorists

 
This would be funny if it weren’t so outrageous.
 
The private security firm that had employed Orlando gay club shooter Omar Mateen since 2007, is an outfit called G4S Security Solutions USA, which claims to be the world’s leading security contractor with operations in more than 100 countries and 610,000 employees, including 50,000 Americans.
 
It turns out G4S has a $234 million contract with the Obama administration’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to, among other things, identify suspected terrorists trying to enter the U.S. — all while Mateen, a Muslim terrorist who killed 50 and wounded another 53 at the Pulse gay club in Orlando, Florida, was right under their nose.
 
Talk about a case of fox guarding the hen house!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
To top it off, the clueless G4S also provides security for 90% of America’s nuclear facilities!
Paul Sperry, New York Post columnist and author of INFILTRATION: How Muslim Spies and Subversives Have Penetrated Washington, writes for Counter Jihad, June 13, 2016, that “The Orlando nightclub terrorist who pledged allegiance to ISIS worked almost a decade for a major Department of Homeland Security contractor, raising alarms that ISIS sympathizers and agents have infiltrated the federal agency set up after 9/11 to combat terrorists.”
 
Orlando shooter Omar Mir Seddique Mateen, an Afghan-American who held two firearms licenses and a security officer license, was employed by the security firm G4S Secure Solutions USA Inc. since Sept. 10, 2007.
 
After 9/11, G4S, based in Jupiter, Florida, merged with the Wackenhut Corp. and became the first contract security company to received designation and certification by DHS.
 
Through the U.S. General Services Administration, the company supplies federal agencies with guards, detention officers, court security officers, baggage handlers, security clerks, and prisoner bus and van drivers in contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars. The security company’s contract with DHS alone amounts to more than $234 million. In addition to the DHS, G4S has contracts with the Departments of State, Interior, Labor, Justice, and Energy; the IRS; Drug Enforcement Administration; U.S. Army; U.S. Air Force; and NASA.
 
G4S’s contracted tasks for the federal government include:
  1. Identify “suspected terrorists” trying to enter the U.S.
  2. Provide “support” to DHS and Customs and Border Protection (CPB) with their operations at the U.S.-Mexican border.
  3. Work with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to transport illegal immigrants in fortified buses from city to city and from cities to the US-Mexican border. (Source: G4S’s “Providing Manpower Solutions for Government Servicesbrochure.) Judicial Watch, however, discovered that G4S has been quietly moving and releasing van loads of illegal aliens away from the border to interior American cities. The illegals were mostly Central Americans but possibly also from the Middle East and Pakistan.
  4. Provide security guards and other security services for 90 percent of U.S. nuclear facilities.
  5. Help the federal government with emergency security responses to “terror threats.”
It’s not clear if Omar Mateen worked on any federal contracts or dealt with federal inmates. It’s also not immediately known if he had federal security clearances, or what kind of security background check G4S administered before hiring Mateen. 
 
Company brochure says security officers “are subjected to a stringent background investigation” that includes psychological, background and criminal screening.” However, one of Mateen’s jobs was to help transport and guard state and local prisoner youths in Florida, despite reports he openly praised ISIS in conversations with co-workers, and even though he had been under federal investigation for terrorism ties since at least 2013.
 
In a 2012 company newsletter, G4S congratulated Mateen for five years of service. Attempts to reach G4S representatives Sunday were unsuccessful.
 
It’s not the first time a federal contractor has employed a major Islamic terrorist.
 
In 2008, Charlotte, N.C.-based Convergys Corp. came under fire for employing 22-year-old Sami Khan, a Muslim computer operator who openly maintained a jihadist website featuring grisly images of American soldiers blown up by al-Qaida terrorists overseas which he said “bring great happiness to me.” 
 
Convergys at the time had landed a $2.5 billion federal contract to set up emergency communications centers in the event to terrorist attacks and other disasters. Khan turned out to be an al-Qaida operative. He was killed in 2011 in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen.
