The latest mass shooting adds to bloody toll in USA

Written by Tom Lawrence

His name was Aaron Alexis this time.

In recent months it was Adam Lanza, Jacob Tyler Roberts, Andrew Engeldinger, Wade Michael Page, James Holmes and so many, many more. They are or were all mass killers.

Alexis killed 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard Monday morning before he was shot and killed by emergency responders. Eight others were wounded or injured in the bloody spree of madness.

It’s worth noting that Monday’s shooting didn’t stun most Americans. We’re far, far too used to the high body count, and reports of shooters on the loose.

It’s become almost routine. There have been 43 mass shootings in America since 2009, according to a study done by Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which counted four or more people shot dead in a single incident as a mass shooting. That’s an average of about one per month.

According to survivors, the people who were eating breakfast at Building 197 at the Navy Yard knew in an instant what was happening. A decade or so ago, people may have wondered what that noise was, and what was going on.

But today, we all know what’s happening. Again.

    I have studied the phenomenon in depth, and I have come to the conclusion that most of the mass shooters are just MK-Ultra mind-controlled patsies, programmed to detonate by the covert operators. All to create anti-gun hysteria to destroy our civil liberties and get us defenseless before the New World Order.
