Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting: Questions and Anomalies

by Vivian Lee

On Saturday morning, October 27, 2017, a mass shooting was reported at the Tree of Life synagogue in the Squirrel Hill region of Pittsburgh, PA. A suspect, Robert Gregory Bowers, was apprehended at the scene, after being wounded by SWAT officers. Before he was taken into custody, Bowers is said to have killed 11 of the congregants and injured six, including four members of the SWAT team that he engaged in two separate gun battles. Bowers was allegedly armed with “an AR-15-style assault rifle,” a Glock pistol, and two other handguns.

The officers who rushed to the scene came upon Mr. Bowers as he was trying to leave the synagogue. He fired at them, injuring one officer in the hand, according to the criminal complaint. Another officer had injuries to his face from shrapnel and broken glass. Mr. Bowers then darted back inside and ran up to the third floor.
At that point, a SWAT team went in and came upon the scene of the massacre. Two people were still alive and the police carried them out. As they were searching for other victims, SWAT officers encountered Mr. Bowers, who fired at them and critically injured two officers.
The remaining officers “engaged the suspect in a gun battle in which multiple rounds were exchanged,” the criminal complaint said. At some point in the shootout, Mr. Bowers was wounded, and he eventually surrendered to the police.[1]

Bowers reportedly entered the synagogue just before 10 am, and “the Allegheny County Emergency Operations center received calls of an active shooter at 9:54 am ET…Officers were dispatched at 9:55 am,” according to CNN. In all, Bowers is said to have been inside the synagogue for a full 20 minutes.

Facebook Temporarily Blocks MemoryHoleBlog Page

Less than one day after launching TracyvFAU documentary The Conspiracy Theorist Facebook abruptly withdrew MemoryHoleBlog’s posting privileges. The reason? A 30 month old post to the social media platform included the email of Sandy Hook Parent “Lenny Pozner” (AKA Reuben Vabner).

In March 2016 MHB shared an article on its Facebook page written by Independent Media Solidarity’s Peter Klein describing how a party using Pozner’s email broke into IMS’s Google Drive. The lead paragraph to that piece included the party’s “personal information,” blacked out above.

The Conspiracy Theorist: What Happened to James Tracy Could Happen to You

Preview of New Documentary on TracyvFAU Federal Civil Rights Case Now on Appeal

Independent Media Solidarity proudly presents the first preview of our new feature-length film, The Conspiracy Theorist: What Happened to James Tracy Could Happen to You. From the makers of We Need to Talk About Sandy Hook, this forthcoming documentary goes behind the scenes of the most important First Amendment legal battle of our time: Professor James Tracy’s firing for his controversial online speech.

In 2015 Florida Atlantic University abruptly terminated Professor Tracy under a false pretext. When Tracy filed a federal civil rights lawsuit his attorneys discovered how university officials repeatedly schemed to defeat Tracy’s First Amendment rights without violating the US Constitution.

After a corrupt federal court threw out most of Tracy’s claims it then prevented the jury from viewing crucial evidence. News outlets continued to denigrate Tracy while publicly misreporting the case. The Conspiracy Theorist sets the record straight through extensive interview footage of Tracy, his legal team, and university witnesses and defendants.

Today social media play a gigantic role in our everyday lives. Will something you or your loved ones say online one day make you the target of harassment and defamation, perhaps even resulting in the loss of your livelihood? What happened to James Tracy could happen to you.

Coincidence? Perhaps (Not)

On November 10, 2015 Florida Governor Rick Scott visited Florida Atlantic University for an early morning meeting of his cabinet alongside political appointees comprising Florida Atlantic University’s Board of Trustees and their managerial candidate, FAU President John Kelly. The meeting was chronicled in official docs and via a fawning Palm Beach Post report.

JamesFetzer.Blogspot Shut Down By #GoogleGestapo

Newly Launched Mirror Site Now Operating

Online behemoth Google has once again lashed out at would-be thought crimes of its users. As longtime conspiracy analyst Jim Fetzer was in the process of moving his website to a new domain and off the “Blogger” service, which hosted the blog for several years, the Google subsidiary pulled the plug on the site entirely.

Fetzer remarks in a September 28 email:

Unbelievable! We were in the process of posting a notice that I was moving to jamesfetzer.org when they took it out. Just in the nick of time! Stunning!

This is part of an ongoing campaign by tech and internet transnationals to censor content their owners do NOT deem fit to print.

President Trump Chastises Tech and Social Media Giants

Editor’s Note: One of the major news stories this week involves Donald Trump’s public condemnation of tech and social media companies’ ongoing censorship of customer and user content. This was accompanied by the president’s introduction of the Twitter hash, #StoptheBias. In a statement that should foster a broad national conversation, a cursory query on the Google search engine itself reveals a general blackout of the president’s commentary in major media, with The Daily Beast the only major US-based mainstream outlet highlighted in “top coverage”–with a misleading headline suggesting that Trump’s remark suggests the creation of a forthcoming political strategy. CNN and MSNBC predictably highlighted Google’s denial of any bias against conservatives.

US President Donald Trump continued to blast away at Google on Wednesday, as he accused the tech company of showing favoritism to former President Barack Obama’s administration.

Trump posted a video to his Twitter page that alleges that Google promoted Obama’s State of the Union addresses multiple times on its homepage, but has not done the same when he has addressed Congress. He posted the video with a hashtag, “#StopTheBias.”

CNBC has confirmed that photos of the Google of pages that appear in the video are accurate. It’s not immediately clear if the video was created by the Trump administration, or if it was made by a third party and shared by the President.

The video was posted a day after Trump criticized Google multiple times on Tuesday, accusing the company of rigging search results to silence conservative media outlets and make his administration look bad.
