  • Orlando Terrorist DOJ Redacted Truth?

    Liberals never allow TRUTH or FACTS to get in the way of their agenda.
    Obama’s DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE  just Redacts the Truth About Whatever.

    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/…/president-obama-and-attorney-general-loretta…

    2 days ago – The numerous leaks from within the FBI investigation of Orlando are … The FBI launched an investigation into Mateen after Sheriff’s Office officials …. Also, it is difficult to see how the OPD can be forced to redact any transcripts it has. … Truth, rule of law and protection of innocent Americans is tossed aside …

    And they need to hide it, big time.

    It is not accidental that Loretta Lynch was featured on all five major broadcasts for the Sunday news cycle (Topic Orlando Terrorism).  You might well remember the last time a key administration official named Susan Rice met with an almost identical Sunday schedule (Topic BENGHAZI Terrorism).

    loretta 6

    General Lynch’s Sunday talk visibility is yet another example of the Obama administration’s risk management reference manual, The Obfuscation Playbook.

    The difference between Rice’s 2012 appearance and Lynch’s 2016 version is: this time we know the play.  We also know exactly what the administration risk is, even IF the media won’t discuss it, it is explained in the link above.

    The Constitution states only one command twice. The Fifth Amendment says to the federal government that no one shall be “deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law.”

    The Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution each contain a due process clause. Due process deals with the administration of justice and thus the due process clause acts as a safeguard from arbitrary denial of life, liberty, or property by the Government outside the sanction of law.

    Facebook Moves to Ban Private Gun Sales on Its Site and Instagram

    JAN 29, 2016 New York Times‎ – 17 hours ago

    full text

    Facebook is banning private sales of guns on its flagship social network and its Instagram photo-sharing service, a move meant to clamp down on unlicensed gun transactions.

    Facebook already prohibits people from offering marijuana, pharmaceuticals and illegal drugs for sale, and the company said on Friday that it was updating its policy to include guns. The ban applies to private, person-to-person sales of guns. Licensed gun dealers and gun clubs can still maintain Facebook pages and post on Instagram.

    Although Facebook was not directly involved in gun sales, it has served as a forum for gun sales to be negotiated, without people having to undergo background checks. The social network, with 1.6 billion monthly visitors, had become one of the world’s largest marketplaces for guns and was increasingly evolving into an e-commerce site where it could facilitate transactions of goods.

    Facebook said it would rely on its vast network of users to report any violations of the new rules, and would remove any post that violated the policy. Beyond that, the company said it could ban users or severely limit the ways they post on Facebook, depending on the type and severity of past violations. If the company believed someone’s life was in danger, Facebook would work with law enforcement on the situation.

    Facebook will also rely on user reports of private gun sales that occur between members via Facebook Messenger, the company’s private messaging service. Facebook does not scan the content of those messages.

    “Over the last two years, more and more people have been using Facebook to discover products and to buy and sell things to one another,” Monika Bickert, Facebook’s head of product policy, said in a statement. “We are continuing to develop, test and launch new products to make this experience even better for people and are updating our regulated goods policies to reflect this evolution.”

    New York’s attorney general, Eric T. Schneiderman, who has pressed for restrictions on illegal gun sales on Facebook and other sites, praised the company’s move.

    “Today’s announcement is another positive step toward our shared goal of stopping illegal online gun sales once and for all,” he said in a statement on Friday.

    Facebook plays host to scores of online groups that cater to gun enthusiasts, with members posting pictures and details about an individual gun, or a gun they might be looking to buy. Many of the groups are private, meaning that Facebook users may need to be approved by an administrator before they can see or write posts.

    Unlike professional gun sellers, hobbyists who sell or trade a few guns a year are not typically required to be licensed by the federal government. Some, like Scott Schmoke of Florida, say that Facebook helps them sell just a handful of weapons a year. Mr. Schmoke said in an interview this month that he always insisted on meeting potential buyers face-to-face, to feel them out.

    “I go to a secure location, and I say, ‘Can I see your driver’s license? Do you have a concealed-weapons permit?’ ” Mr. Schmoke said. If he gets a bad feeling, he does not sell, he said.

    But as an unlicensed seller, Mr. Schmoke is under no obligation to perform any kind of background check. Federal authorities have expressed worries that the Internet has fueled the sale of guns to felons and others who might normally be blocked from buying firearms.

    Facebook has taken some steps to regulate gun sales over the years. In 2014, it said it would limit gun sales on its site and on Instagram, including by shielding minors from Facebook pages that advertised guns for sale.

    But since then, Facebook has been inching toward facilitating e-commerce transactions. In December, the company introduced a project that directs users to local businesses and services that are well-reviewed on Facebook. Facebook can also store users’ credit card information. And in recent months, Facebook made it possible to send peer-to-peer payments through Messenger.

    Facebook’s progression toward on-site payments underscored the need to update the company’s content policy, a Facebook spokeswoman said.

    The company has also been pushed by gun safety groups including Everytown for Gun Safety, an umbrella group that united the efforts of two separate organizations of mayors and mothers to promote gun safety. Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, one of those two advocacy groups, said she met with senior Facebook officials repeatedly over the last two years.

    Everytown for Gun Safety presented Facebook with research connecting unlicensed gun sales on the site to gun violence. For example, Ms. Watts said, in December 2014, an Ohio man, Brian Harleman, shot and wounded his ex-girlfriend and killed her 10-year-old daughter before killing himself. Although prohibited from buying firearms because of a felony conviction, he was able to buy the weapon in an unlicensed sale on Facebook.

    “We were saying, ‘Please stop the unfettered access to guns on Facebook,’ ” Ms. Watts, a mother of five in Colorado, said in an interview.

    Because of Facebook’s tremendous influence, she said, its decision to ban person-to-person sales of guns will have ripple effects on gun policy nationwide.

    “What they’re doing is sending such an incredibly strong, sentinel signal to the world that America is working in the right direction on guns,” she said. “For them to take a stand and do the right thing gives cover to other businesses to do the right thing.”

    My bottom line question

    My question to my ELECTED federal and state representatives.
    DO YOU ABIDE BY  THE LAW OF THE LAND AND CONSTITUTIONAL  DUE PROCESS OF LAW ON GUN CONTROL IN YOUR LEGISLATION?

  • Olympia WA Has Gone Anti-Gun Crazy

    The Truth of the Day….

    THE COMMON TRUTH BLOG  is dedicated to speaking the truth on subjects we see every day; common  things. Common Truth. Many of us know it, some do not, yet; as the banner page says, “We hold these truths to be self-evident”. They speak for themselves for they come from within us, not from the media, not from politicians but from the common sense within. Thus, The Common truth.

     

    It’s the first week of the new 2016 legislative session in Olympia WA and the anti-gun politicians have wasted no time in sending out a series of bills designed to impact over two million law abiding gun owners. It seems irrelevant to them that the Washington State Constitution says “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be impaired” even though they have all sworn to protect and defend that constitution. It is irrelevant to them that Washington State does not have a gun problem and has one of the lowest gun homicide rates in the nation. So what is relevant to them?

    Perhaps it is owing to the well-funded anti-gun pressure from billionaires like Michael Bloomberg and Nick Hanauer. There is no quicker way to get your agenda out in the limelight than to fund campaigns. Every town for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action are well funded. It is no secret that many of these politicians are literally card carrying members of these organizations.

    The saddest part of this is that none of the bills they advocate will prevent criminal homicides. In fact, several may also cause an increase by disarming people and setting up target areas for the criminal elements to prey on defenseless victims. Just remember, it is already a felony to use a gun in the commission of a crime so how they expect making it a felony to be a law abiding gun owner to reduce gun crime is ludicrous.

    They are very good at ignoring the facts but I will present them once again so that you are informed and can take action. In Washington State, there were 118 gun homicides in 2014. There were 548 traffic fatalities. So if you get in a car, you are almost 5 times as likely to be killed in that car as by a gun. You are 4 times as likely to die from the flu. In fact, you are over 100X as likely to die from medical malpractice so don’t worry about the gun owner; fear your doctor.

    What are these bills they propose, what do they mean and how do they affect you is as follows:

    HB 2354 (“assault weapon” ban) – The most onerous of all, this bill would ban anything that looks scary and is no more powerful (less so) than a bolt action hunting rifle. It also limits magazine capacity so that if you did have to defend yourself, you better be a good shot. How many times have we seen trained policemen empty their firearms to stop a criminal and that’s just one assailant? There is also no corresponding data that says these weapons are used in crimes.

    ————————————————–
    HB 2372 (Firearm destruction) – This bill is about allowing the destruction of firearms taken from those in the commission of a crime. It goes a step further however; in that they can destroy your firearms if ou are accused of a crime. Too bad if you are found innocent; your property has been destroyed.

    ————————————–
    HB 2374 (Ammo tax) – This one charges a .05 per round tax on every round of ammunition sold in WA State. How that prevent crime is beyond me and all I see is local business harmed as people now purchase from out of state. Maybe if they really need the fund, they should charge a penalty every time an anti-gun politician tells a lie. We would rake in millions.

    ——————————————–
    HB 2460 (making it unlawful to carry in public) – This one is deadly serious. It not only nullifies WA States open carry but makes it criminal to conceal carry even with a permit in a variety of places. Effectively, it designates a boatload of “GUN FREE ZONES ” which we know are target areas for criminals. This will without a doubt, create additional deaths as people who obey the law become targets.

    ————————————————-
    HB 1747 and companion SB 5789 (Firearm storage) – Now they want to be in your home and require your guns be locked up. Not a bad idea if you have little children as you want to keep them out of reach, but locked away means asking an intruder to wait while you go open your gun safe. This was on the agenda last year and we effectively killed the bill.

    ——————————————–
    HB 1857 Concerning extreme risk protective orders. – This doozy allows any family member or law enforcement with a grudge to say you are a danger or made a threat (verbal) in the last six months and you lose your gun rights. No proof needed and no other action because if you were a threat, shouldn’t something more be done? This too was a carryover that took quite a fight and the aid of the ACLU, NRA and various rights activists.

    ———————————————————

    In short, yes; they are coming to take your guns but only if you let them. I urge you to use the 1-800 number below and tell them each bill number and that you oppose it. Also, each bill above is hyperlinked so that you can comment directly. If you value your rights, do this today and hold them accountable.

    Legislative Hotline – 1-800-562-6000

    They will ask your name, address and telephone and which bills you wish to comment. That in turn goes to your 3 WA State reps.

    ———————————————————-

    As an American Citizen I support the Second Amendment Constitutional Right for  “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be impaired”

    If you value your right to bear arms…

    IF YOU ARE AGAINST MORE GUN CONTROL….

    Remember, Silence implies consent. Let your voice be heard.

    My website is my voice… against more GUN CONTROL.

    Below is an email comment I received.

    Subject: Gun Control -For Jay Inslee by Rene Holaday

    Governor Inslee,

    Because I am not one of your “yes men”, I’m going to share a different point of view with you that you won’t get from your immediate circle of influence.
    When you were sworn into office, did you not take the oath of office, in which you were sworn to uphold both the US and WA State Constitution? Did you swear to that oath, or was that just a lie in your own mind? A person who dos not swear to uphold the Constitution is flat out NOT ALLOWED to take an elected office representing the people. Why is that? Let me tell you why; the Constitution is the SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND. The oath of office simply guarantees that you will follow the laws as they are currently written. If you do not uphold the law, then that makes you a criminal or engaging in criminal practices. Attempting to infringe upon the 2nd amendment at all is against the law.
    In response to this appalling letter of yours (below), let me remind you that you have zero authority that is above the 2nd Amendment of the Supreme Law of the Land. I am so appalled by your clear disconnect from the people of WA State that you are supposed to be representing. You are not allowed to gut the 2nd Amendment, and for trying, you should be recalled for violation of your oath of office. Not everybody agrees with your idea that “the people” should have no way to defend themselves, while government and law enforcement are beefing up their own arsenals. Are you planning to dismantle all weaponry the State holds or just that of the people?? I’m sure you still want law enforcement to have full access to their weapons right?
    The point is that you must uphold the law, and for trying so hard to undermine it, you should be recalled. Lawlessness by elected officials will not be tolerated. You are subject to the laws as they are written-period.
    People are at least 5 times more likely to be killed by a car than they are a gun, yet I have seen no letter from you demanding that cars be restricted in a concern for public health…?? Iatrogenics is still the #1 killer in the nation, so you had also better alert people to poor medical practices as well. Funny thing though- you could actually care less about public health, and you seek only to remove people’s ability to defend themselves by gutting the 2nd Amendment.
    We won’t stand for it Mr. Inslee and we would be happy to elect or appoint your replacement who will uphold their oath of office.

    One of the many hundreds of thousands, if not millions, that you are failing to represent in WA State,

    Rene’ Holaday
    Chewelah, WA

    1868 Congress passed the Expatriation Act of 1868 that said “the right of expatriation is a natural and inherent right of all people
    1870 The Naturalization Act of 1870 (16 Stat. 254) was a United States federal law that created a system of controls for the naturalization process and penalties for fraudulent practices.

    1 day ago – Rally in Roseburg: Patriots Plan to Tell Obama He’s Not Welcome … shooting in Roseburg, OR, President Obama has made a point to not only …
    Posted by Kit Lange on Oct 6, 2015 |
    In the wake of the recent shooting in Roseburg, OR, President Obama has made a point to not only talk openly about executive orders regarding gun control, but also plans to make a visit to Roseburg on Friday to underscore the point. He plans to talk to the families of those killed, as well as push for “common sense” gun control.

    There’s only one problem. It seems quite a few in Roseburg don’t want him there.

    One Facebook group titled “Stay Out of Roseburg” had over 800 likes in only a few hours. The Heirs of Patrick Henry, another OR-based patriot group, is already planning a rally the morning of Obama’s visit, with the express purpose of making it known loud and clear that the President is not welcome in Roseburg. Obviously, this is a peaceful rally, put on by some stalwart patriots who I’ve had the pleasure of working with and standing next to in the past. They’re good guys, and they are absolutely serious about this. Even the brother of one of the wounded had this to say when asked the million dollar question “What would you say to President Obama?”
    “I would tell him to look where the problem really lies and quit running the agenda ¬ quit running the gun agenda,” he said. “It’s not the problem. It’s mental health in America. It’s obvious. All of us talk about it. I don’t know why we are hiding from it.”
    Hush, you person-with-actual-common-sense, you. You’re jacking up the narrative. So much for your invite to the White House. (What? You didn’t “build” a “clock” as a backup plan?)

    The rally in Roseburg has support from several groups in OR and WA state, and while the short notice and early timeframe (0600) has some folks unable to attend, it still seems to be shaping up to be an interesting event. At 0430 Tuesday morning, only a few short hours after creation, over 1,300 people had already been invited, showing a grassroots spread of the event across social media. From the event page:
    The anointed one his majesty king 0bama and the White House have announced a Friday arrival in Roseburg, Oregon in the wake of Oct 1st’s horrific tragedy at UCC.
    Polarizing as usual, Mr 0bama has insisted on politicizing the event as a conduit for increased executive orders on gun control via means of his pen, and his phone.
    This blatant disrespect of the victims families, the community and the town of Roseburg, Mr 0bama’s administration is flying not just the 747 that is airforce one to Oregon, but a three helicopter team of Sikorsky’s that make up HMX-1, known as Marine one to travel to Roseburg at the taxpayers expense.
    We need a lot of people. Please come show your support for Roseburg, not the little man who has no respect for the constitution.
    Sounds like a good time to me. What will make it even more interesting is the 2012 law that makes it illegal to protest anywhere the Secret Service decides is off-limits. Now taking bets on whether their protest gets either relegated to a “free speech zone” or the participants face some kind of jackbooted action.

    In other words, your presence is needed. As I’ve written before, the potential for things to go bad is not a good reason to stay home. It is, however, a pretty compelling reason to go.

    President Barack Obama’s remarks in favor of gun control a few hours after the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College is sparking anger in Roseburg about his upcoming visit to the city.
    David Jacques, a Republican activist who publishes a weekly newspaper in Roseburg, warned on national TV on Monday night that the president “is not welcome in the community.”
    Local social media sites in the conservative community are replete with criticism of the president, and several local officials said Obama should stay away from the subject of gun laws during his Friday visit.
    “I was not pleased with the direction the commander-in-chief took” after the shootings, state Rep. Dallas Heard, R-Roseburg, said Tuesday. “Let’s hope he can think to do better when he comes here. We can only hope.”
    The White House said Obama is traveling to Roseburg to “visit privately with families of victims of the shooting,” leaving the impression he would not have any public events for what is expected to be a short visit.
    The furor over the president’s visit led the Roseburg City Council to issue a statement saying city officials will welcome Obama and “extend him every courtesy.”
    Council President Tom Ryan said in an interview Tuesday that the statement – which referred to “misrepresentations” made by some people – was aimed at Jacques, who claimed to have the support of community leaders.
    If Obama “can help heal some families, more power to him,” said Ryan, who also expressed concerns about what the president might say during his visit.
    “We don’t need to be in the middle of a national gun rights debate,” Ryan said. “We have people who are healing. That is our main concern.”
    Jacques, who was a delegate to the 2012 Republican national convention, has been interviewed by Bill O’Reilly on Fox News and featured on several conservative websites.
    He said in an interview with The Oregonian/Oregon Live that Obama showed “blatant disregard for the mourning process,” and he charged that the president is coming to Roseburg to recruit family members to speak out in favor of tougher gun laws.
    A few hours after the Thursday shooting, Obama spoke at length in the White House press room about how expanded background checks and other laws would help reduce gun violence.
    The president added: “And of course what’s also routine is that somebody somewhere will comment and say, ‘Obama politicized this issue.’ Well, this is something we should politicize.”
    Jacques said two Douglas County commissioners – Tim Freeman and Chris Boice – as well as Sheriff John Hanlin on Saturday expressed support for a statement saying they were not interested in having the president visit if he is “coming here to take advantage of our crisis to promote his political agenda.”
    The sheriff and two commissioners could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
    Jeff Ackerman, editor and publisher of the Roseburg News-Review, the local daily newspaper, said it is one thing for the president to meet privately with the families of the victims.
    “If he’s going to stand on Main Street and talk about gun control,” Ackerman said, “that’s not going to go too well in Roseburg or Douglas County.”

    While President Obama has called for stricter gun regulations, many in the Oregon community said the shooting rampage had only increased …
    By JACK HEALY and JULIE TURKEWITZOCT. 7, 2015

    ROSEBURG, Ore. — A week has passed since J.J. Vicari huddled underneath a desk while gunshots exploded in the classroom next door. Now, he is thinking about guns. Not about tightening gun laws, as President Obama urged after nine people were killed at the community college here. But about buying one for himself.
    “It’s opened my eyes,” said Mr. Vicari, 19. “I want to have a gun in the house to protect myself, to protect the people I’m with. I’m sure I’ll have a normal life and never have to go through anything like this, but I want to be sure.”
    Mr. Obama plans to visit Roseburg on Friday to meet the grieving families of yet another gun rampage, but many people here are bristling at his renewed call for stricter gun laws. In some ways, the rampage at the college by a 26-year-old student, Christopher Harper-Mercer, has actually tightened the embrace of guns in a rural town where shots at rifle ranges echo off the hills and hunters bag deer and elk through the fall.
    Some families touched by the violence and students who fled gunfire said they now feared that the kind of bloodshed seen inside Classroom 15 at Snyder Hall, Umpqua Community College, could happen anywhere. Some said they were planning to buy guns. Others said they would seek concealed-weapons permits. Others, echoing gun advocates’ calls for more weapons on campus, said the college should allow its security guard to carry guns. A few said they thought that stricter gun control laws could have averted the massacre.
    Even Mr. Obama’s visit has stirred fiercely polarized responses. Some residents and the publisher of a weekly conservative newspaper said he was not welcome, and accused him of using the town’s anguish to advance his gun-control agenda.
    The language got so angry that on Tuesday the mayor and other city officials put out a statement saying they welcomed Mr. Obama and “will extend him every courtesy.”
    And while the mass shooting here has pushed some people toward wanting to arm themselves, it has also pushed others in the opposite direction. Students like Devon Paasch, 36, whose writing teacher, Lawrence Levine, was among the victims, said the murders had intensified her belief that the country needed stricter gun laws. Ms. Paasch was not on campus that morning because she slept through her alarm; she has spent the past week tilting between grief, guilt and a fear of returning to school.
    “No kind of gun control is going to stop everything,” Ms. Paasch said. “But in a situation like this, it could have saved 10 lives.”
    The debate has rolled across a conservative, timber-producing region where flags are at half-staff and roadside signs solicit prayers for the victims. From a wooded gun range south of town, to City Hall, to KC’s Exchange, where Carolyn Kellim sells handguns and ammunition out of her home, people insisted that the actions of Mr. Harper-Mercer, who was armed with six guns and spare ammunition magazines, would not displace guns from their place in local life.
    “That’s why we have guns: We don’t have the government dictating when to get on our knees,” said Ms. Kellim, who is 86.
    After the shooting, gun-control groups and national news media skewered Sheriff John Hanlin of Douglas County, which includes Roseburg, for a letter he wrote to Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Connecticut. In it he said, “Gun control is NOT the answer to preventing heinous crimes like school shootings.” But in church pews and coffee shops, many residents said they still believed he was right. Online, some are using #supportforHanlin to back him.
    A community college student has started a petition to allow concealed weapons on all campuses, echoing hotly disputed arguments from national gun groups that mass shootings could be stopped by more “good guys with guns.” In 2011, an Oregon court said public colleges could not ban guns from campus.
    Umpqua Community College only banned guns “without written authorization,” and students said many of their classmates carried concealed weapons. One of them, John Parker Jr., an Air Force veteran, told MSNBC that he was armed when the attack happened, but did not intervene. He said SWAT officers might have mistaken him for a killer.
    “This just shows you, you have to have a way to protect yourself,” said Makayla Thomas, 19, who raced into a student center when the attack started and huddled there until the police arrived. “It’s happened once. Who knows what can happen?”
    Jamie Skinner, 34, a former girlfriend of Chris Mintz, the Army veteran who blocked the door to a classroom at Umpqua Community College and was shot by Mr. Harper-Mercer, said in an interview last week that the massacre in Roseburg would not change her opinion that owning guns was important. Ms. Skinner has worked as an armed security guard, and said she and Mr. Mintz went to shooting ranges for recreation.
    “We are a weapons family,” Ms. Skinner said. She and Mr. Mintz have a 6-year-old son, Tyrik, who has autism and who also influenced her attitude toward guns. “I like to have the ability to protect myself and my child,” she said.
    But Ashley Schmidt, 28, said the horror she heard through the walls of the classrooms had nudged her toward supporting rules that would regulate guns the way cars are. She was in Classroom 14 in Snyder Hall when the shooting started, and ran out amid a storm of gunfire, yelling “Gun! Gun! Gun!” at a girl in the hallway whose earbuds had blocked out the noise.
    Ms. Schmidt said she opposed “taking guns away,” and lamented that there was no foolproof way to keep guns away from criminals or would-be mass murderers.
    “I’ve always felt like there is nothing I can do,” she said, about school shootings. “But I see this country falling apart.”

    34 School shooters/school related violence committed by those under the influence of psychiatric drugs

    Seattle, Washington – June 5, 2014: 26-year-old Aaron Ybarra opened fire with a shotgun at Seattle Pacific University, killing one student and wounding two others. Ybarra planned to kill as many people as possible and then kill himself. In 2012, Ybarra reported that he had been prescribed the antidepressant Prozac and antipsychotic Risperdal. A report from his counselor in December of 2013 said that he was taking Prozac at the time and planned to continue to meet with his psychiatrist and therapist as needed.

     “In virtually every mass school shooting during the past 15 years, the shooter has been on or in withdrawal from psychiatric drugs,” observed Lawrence Hunter of the Social Security Institute. “YET, FEDERAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS CONTINUE TO IGNORE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS AND MURDEROUS VIOLENCE, preferring instead to exploit these tragedies in an oppressive and unconstitutional power grab to snatch guns away from innocent, law-abiding people who are guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution the right to own and bear arms to deter government tyranny and to use firearms in self defense against any miscreant who would do them harm.”

    Despite the abundance of such evidence and a glut of scientific studies proving real danger, “THERE HAS YET TO BE A FEDERAL INVESTIGATION ON THE LINK BETWEEN PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS AND ACTS OF SENSELESS VIOLENCE,” according to the Citizens Commission on Human Rights International (CCHRI), a non-profit mental health watchdog group.

    CCHRI states that GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS ARE WELL AWARE OF THE CONNECTION. “Between 2004 and 2011, there have been over 11,000 reports to the U.S. FDA’s MedWatch system of PSYCHIATRIC DRUG SIDE EFFECTS RELATED TO VIOLENCE,” including 300 homicides. The FDA estimates this total is less than 10 percent of the actual number of incidents since most go unreported.

    FACTS ARE STUBBORN THINGS; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of  facts and evidence.

    DRUGS ON THE FIRING LINE

    Antidepressants are psychiatric drugs that form a common thread in school shootings. There are five categories of anti­depressants: selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI), selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRI), monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOI), tricyclic antidepressants (TCA), and atypical antidepressants. Despite the moniker, doctors prescribe these medicines for much more than depression. They use them to treat such ailments as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), bipolar disorder, bulimia nervosa, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder (SAD), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Other suspect medications, such as Ritalin, Adderal, and Concerta, are sympathomimetic amines, prescribed to treat ADHD.

    Psychiatric Meds: Prescription for Murder?

    In a frenzied cry for gun-control, the media is rife with details about the firearms Adam Lanza used to kill 20 children and six adults before turning a handgun on himself at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012. But information about Lanza’s medical history is scarce, feeding speculation that he may fit the profile of school shooters under the influence of psychotherapeutic medication.

    “In virtually every mass school shooting during the past 15 years, the shooter has been on or in withdrawal from psychiatric drugs,” observed Lawrence Hunter of the Social Security Institute. “Yet, federal and state governments continue to ignore the connection between psychiatric drugs and murderous violence, preferring instead to exploit these tragedies in an oppressive and unconstitutional power grab to snatch guns away from innocent, law-abiding people who are guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution the right to own and bear arms to deter government tyranny and to use firearms in self defense against any miscreant who would do them harm.”

    There is a striking connection between school shootings and psychotherapeutic drugs, also known as psychotropics. Consider these examples:

    AND, THE LIST GOES ON….
    • Toby Sincino, a 15-year-old who shot two teachers and himself in 1995 at his South Carolina school, was taking the antidepressant Zoloft.

    • Kip Kinkel, an Oregon teen who murdered his parents and proceeded on a shooting rampage at his high school in 1998, killed two and wounded 25 while in Prozac withdrawal.

    • Shawn Cooper fired two shotgun rounds in 1999 at his Idaho high school while on an antidepressant.

    • T.J. Solomon, Jr. was 15 years old when he shot six classmates in Atlanta in 1999. He was taking Ritalin and was also being treated for depression.

    • Eric Harris was one of the assailants at Columbine High School in Colorado in 1999. His autopsy revealed a therapeutic level of the antidepressant Luvox in his system.

    • Jason Hoffman wounded five people with a shotgun at his California high school in 2001 while on two antidepressant medications, Celexa and Effexor.

    • Jeffrey Weise, a student at Red Lake High School in Minnesota, killed 10 and wounded seven in 2005 while on Prozac.

    • Matti Saari, a college student in Finland, shot and killed 10 people before committing suicide at his university in 2008. The Finnish Ministry of Justice later reported he was taking an antidepressant and an anti-anxiety medication.

    • Steve Kazmierczak killed six including himself at Northern Illinois University in 2008 while in withdrawal from the antidepressant Prozac.

    • Tim Kretschmer murdered 15 students and teachers at his secondary school in Germany in 2009, and then committed suicide. Police reported Kretschmer was taking prescriptions to treat depression.

    A 2002 Fox News interview with Cory Baadsgaard sheds some light on the possible mental state of these criminals. The year before, at age 16, Baadsgaard held a high-school class hostage at gunpoint in Washington state. Fortunately, no one was killed or physically hurt during the incident. The young man remembers the day in this way: “In the morning I didn’t feel like going to school. I felt sick; didn’t feel like I could get up very well. So I went back to bed. And the next thing I remember I’m in juvie in the detention center where I used to live.” Baadsgaard says he has no memory of the incident. He was tried as an adult but spent only 14 months in prison because expert psychiatric testimony convinced the jury his crime was the result of adverse reactions the antidepressants Effexor and Paxil.

    Despite the abundance of such evidence and a glut of scientific studies proving real danger, “there has yet to be a federal investigation on the link between psychiatric drugs and acts of senseless violence,” according to the Citizens Commission on Human Rights International (CCHRI), a non-profit mental health watchdog group. CCHRI states that government officials are well aware of the connection. “Between 2004 and 2011, there have been over 11,000 reports to the U.S. FDA’s MedWatch system of psychiatric drug side effects related to violence,” including 300 homicides. The FDA estimates this total is less than 10 percent of the actual number of incidents since most go unreported.

    However, there has been little government action at all, with one exception. Due to the “large body of scientific research establishing a connection between violence and suicide and the use of psychotropic drugs,” the New York State Senate introduced a bill in 2000 to “require police to report to the Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS), certain crimes and suicides committed by persons using psychotropic drugs.” The bill died in committee, and the issue remains unresolved.

    Instead, in response to the Sandy Hook tragedy and ignoring the obvious, Senator Toni Nathaniel Harp and Representative Toni E. Walker, both Democrats of the Connecticut General Assembly, introduced Bill 374, “requiring behavioral health assessments for children,” mandating psychiatric testing for public school students in grades 6, 8, 10, and 12 and for homeschooled children at ages 12, 14, and 17. The assessments would have to be reported to the State Board of Education, and there is great likelihood that more children would end up on psychiatric meds after such tests.

    There is also plenty of official agitation for gun control. Hunter suggests instead, “It is pharmaceutical makers, not law-abiding gun owners or gun manufacturers, who should be held to account for the series of ‘lone-wolf’ mass shootings that have occurred since the widespread use of psychiatric drugs began.”

    Drugs on the Firing Line

    Antidepressants are psychiatric drugs that form a common thread in school shootings. There are five categories of anti­depressants: selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI), selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRI), monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOI), tricyclic antidepressants (TCA), and atypical antidepressants. Despite the moniker, doctors prescribe these medicines for much more than depression. They use them to treat such ailments as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), bipolar disorder, bulimia nervosa, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder (SAD), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Other suspect medications, such as Ritalin, Adderal, and Concerta, are sympathomimetic amines, prescribed to treat ADHD.

    These medicines act on the body’s nervous system — altering its chemical communication pathways to affect areas of the brain involved in judgment, abstract reasoning, memory, emotions, and the fight-or-flight response — explains Michelle Morrison-Valfre, MHS, FNP in her 2005 book, Foundations of Mental Health Care. The expected result is a calm mood and clear thinking. However, in some cases unexpected results occur.

    The Physicians’ Desk Reference (PDR), an authoritative source of all FDA-approved drug labeling information, identifies the potential hazardous side effects of psychotherapeutics, including suicidal and homicidal ideation. Unfortunately, such effects are not uncommon. In fact, when taking a particular medication poses serious risks, the FDA requires drug manufacturers to highlight the dangers in eye-catching boxes on pharmaceutical packaging. A drug’s “black box warning” alerts consumers to the major hazards they face when taking that medicine. Most prescriptions do not have black box warnings — only those that can cause extreme adverse reactions compared to the potential benefit. Among psychotherapeutics’ black box warnings are:

    • “Increased risk of suicidal ideation in short-term studies in children and adolescents with ADHD.” (Strattera, SNRI)

    • “Antidepressants increased risk of suicidal thinking and behavior (suicidality) in short-term studies in children, adolescents and young adults with major depressive disorder and other psychiatric disorders.” (Zoloft, SSRI)

    • “Monitor appropriately and observe closely for clinical worsening, suicidality or unusual changes in behavior for all patients who are started on antidepressant therapy.” (Parnate, MAOI)

    • “High potential for abuse; avoid prolonged use. Misuse of amphetamine may cause sudden death and serious cardiovascular events.” (Adderal, sympathomimetic amine)

    Additionally, all depression and ADHD therapies contain FDA-mandated warnings for caregivers to monitor for suicidal thinking, worsening of depression symptoms, and unusual changes in behavior. Patients taking the tricyclic Elavil are cautioned to “seek medical attention for symptoms of mania, increasing psychosis or paranoia.” Literature warns parents of children on Ritalin that “stimulants at usual doses can cause treatment emergent psychotic or manic symptoms (hallucinations, delusional thinking, mania) in children and adolescents without prior history of psychotic illness.” (Emphasis added.) The PDR also reports clinical trials have identified aggressive behavior and hostility as notable side effects of ADHD medications.

    The advent of these drugs coincides disturbingly with a rise in the adolescent suicide rate. Ritalin was introduced in 1956. Antidepressants made their debut in the early 1960s, according to Morrison-Valfre, who noted elsewhere in her text that statistics from the U.S. Bureau of the Census reveal, “from 1960 to 2000 the rate of adolescent suicide more than doubled.” This may be coincidental, but it is unnerving in light of these drugs’ well-known adverse effects.

    One thing, however, is certain. Prior to the advent of antidepressants, there was little relation between depression and violent behavior. “One of the things in the past that we’ve known about depression is that it very, very rarely leads to violence,” observed psychiatrist Peter Breggin in a Fox News report. “It’s only been since the advent of these new SSRI drugs that we have murderers, sometimes even mass murderers, taking antidepressant drugs.”

    Dr. Breggin is an expert in the mental health field and an outspoken critic of psychiatric drug overuse. Among his more than 20 books on the topic is Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry (2008), in which he recounts a significant clinical trial involving children taking Prozac. Fourteen percent of the study’s subjects became aggressive and even violent on the drug, but the experience of a 12-year-old boy is particularly disturbing. Quoting the study, Breggin writes:

    Thirty-eight days after beginning the protocol, F. experienced a violent nightmare about killing his classmates until he himself was shot. He awakened from it only with difficulty, and the dream continued to feel “very real.” He reported having had several days of increasingly vivid “bad dreams” before this episode; these included images of killing himself and his parents dying. When he was seen later that day he was agitated and anxious, refused to go to school, and reported marked suicidal ideation that made him feel unsafe at home as well.

    Breggin notes the boy cannot be labeled a copycat since the study was conducted in 1991, long before the highly publicized school shootings of more recent years. Once the child stopped taking Prozac, his symptoms disappeared.

    The Drug Pushers

    Instead of investigating psychiatric drugs’ connection to acts of mass violence, public policymakers and healthcare professionals actually promote the use of psychotropic drugs by children and adolescents. The New York Review of Books published a June 2011 review by Dr. Marcia Angell, former editor of The New England Journal of Medicine, called “The Epidemic of Mental Illness: Why?” She summed up the problem saying:

    The tally of those who are so disabled by mental disorders that they qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) increased nearly two and a half times between 1987 and 2007 — from one in 184 Americans to one in seventy-six. For children, the rise is even more startling — a thirty-five-fold increase in the same two decades. Mental illness is now the leading cause of disability in children, well ahead of physical disabilities like cerebral palsy or Down syndrome, for which the federal programs were created.

    Angell relates that psychiatric treatment shifted from “talk therapy” to drug therapy in the 1950s when doctors noticed new drugs meant to treat infections also “blunted disturbing mental symptoms” by affecting the levels of certain chemicals in the brain. Out of that observation was born the theory that mental illness is a result of chemical imbalances. “Thus, instead of developing a drug to treat an abnormality, an abnormality was postulated to fit a drug,” observed Angell. “That was a great leap in logic.” She noted that subsequent studies have proven such chemical imbalances do not in fact exist in patients diagnosed with psychiatric disorders such as depression. It is only after a person takes a psychiatric medication that the brain begins to function abnormally.

    Moreover, diagnosing mental illness is largely a subjective endeavor, unlike other fields of medicine that rely on objective lab data or scans and x-rays for diagnosis. So says psychiatrist Daniel Carlat in his 2010 book Unhinged: The Trouble With Psychiatry — A Doctor’s Revelations About a Profession in Crisis. “Our diagnoses are subjective and expandable, and we have few rational reasons for choosing one treatment over another,” admits Carlat.

    Eager to exploit the benefits of the chemical theory and aware of the “subjective and expandable” nature of diagnosing mental illness, drug companies vigorously subsidize the psychiatric profession. In his 2010 exposé Anatomy of an Epidemic, Robert Whitaker notes that besides the gifts and fringe benefits given directly to psychiatrists, especially those at influential academic centers, drug companies generously support psychiatric associations, patient advocacy groups, and educational organizations. They fund around one-fifth of the budget of the American Psychiatric Association. In the first quarter of 2009 alone, pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly donated more than $1.2 million to mental health non-profits.

    Angell goes on to explain how drug companies peddle their wares. In order to have a drug approved, pharmaceutical manufacturers must submit to the FDA two clinical trials proving a product more effective than a placebo. Drug companies can perform as many trials as they wish in order to achieve the two successful tests they need. Positive studies are highly publicized while the negative are suppressed. In a review of tests for the six most widely used antidepressants between 1987 and 1999 — Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Celexa, Serzone, and Effexor — Angell reported, “Most of them were negatives. Overall, placebos were 82 percent as effective as the drugs.… The average difference between drug and placebo … was clinically meaningless.”

    Convinced by positive reports of the drugs’ benefits, doctors prescribe them liberally. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention divulged in 2011 that 11 percent of Americans age 12 years and over take antidepressant medication. CDC statistics also revealed a 400-percent increase in the rate of antidepressant use in the United States between 1988 and 2008. As of 2008, antidepressants were the most frequently used drug by persons aged 18-44 years.

    The problem is not confined to the United States. Last year the Guardian reported prescriptions for Ritalin in the U.K. quad­rupled from 2000 to 2010, and between 2006 and 2010 the United States witnessed an 83-percent increase in sales. The U.K.’s Association of Educational Psychologists complains that physicians are ignoring the professional union’s recommendation not to prescribe ADHD medication to most children under age six. “We need to show young people how to deal with the normal stresses and strains of growing up,” argues Member of Parliament Tessa Munt. “Resorting to powerful drugs only stores up trouble for the future.”

    The University of Utah’s Genetic Science Learning Center says that Ritalin is currently prescribed to approximately six million people in the United States, of which 75 percent are children. Its data also confirm between 30 and 50 percent of adolescents in drug treatment centers report abusing Ritalin. And because of the medication’s similarity to cocaine, once these teens reach adulthood they are more prone to cocaine addiction.

    Angell acknowledges the long-term effects of psychiatric drugs have yet to be proven. But she quotes several psychiatric researchers, including a former director of the National Institute of Mental Health, who contend that by upsetting normal brain chemistry, these medications cause brain cells to become desensitized to or overcompensate for the disturbances the drugs cause. In other words, the drugs can trigger chemical imbalance where none existed in the first place, hence the emergence of adverse effects like mania and suicidal/homicidal ideation, especially when a psychotropic drug is first started or stopped. Other research shows a relation between these drugs and brain atrophy, an often irreparable decrease in the size and number of brain cells.

    The Connecticut Case

    Fox News reported, after an initial search of Lanza’s home, investigators found no indication the 20-year-old was taking prescriptions. Other evidence suggests he was. Louise Tambascio, a friend of Lanza’s mother, told CBS News’ Scott Pelley on 60 Minutes, “I know he was on medication and everything.” ABC News also interviewed Tambascio, who repeated, “I knew he was on medication.”

    Connecticut’s chief medical examiner, H. Wayne Carver II, is currently conducting toxicology exams to determine if Lanza was using any behavior-modifying drugs. Many think it likely. Days after the Sandy Hook massacre, standing outside Lanza’s home, CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta commented, “What medications was he on? I’m specifically talking about antidepressants. If you look at the studies of other shootings like this that have happened, medications like this were a common factor.” In a December 16 Fox News interview, former Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge also warned of the undeniable link between youth violence and psychiatric drugs.

    Most media choose to ignore such warnings and even downplay the obvious. The Associated Press published a January 11 report entitled, “Connecticut shooting: Medical examiner says gunman’s body won’t reveal much.” It claims that “Connecticut’s chief medical examiner says he doubts toxicological tests and genetic analysis of the body of the gunman who fatally shot 20 children and six educators at an elementary school will explain his actions.” In a glaring contradiction the same article later notes, “The toxicology exam, which could take several weeks, involves testing body fluids for psychiatric medications or illegal substances. Carver said the result could provide ‘potentially valuable information’ in creating a full picture of Lanza.”

    Meanwhile, government officials and anti-gun activists continue to use the tragedy in the Constitution State to deprive Americans of the constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. Whether Adam Lanza’s toxicology tests reveal psychiatric medications were involved in his rampage is not likely to deter their frenzied zeal.
