Are major Western news media complicit in the staging of so many recent and curious mass shooting and “terrorist attack” events? A simple answer would be “Yes,” if only because journalistic outlets collectively (and perhaps intentionally) fail to thoroughly interrogate these events and the potential motivations of individuals and institutions directly involved in such incidents, in particular those wielding unprecedented oversight with the most at stake–federal government and law enforcement agencies.

san-bernardinoThis is especially so because the storylines and evidence offered to demonstrate events including the Sandy Hook massacre, the Boston bombing, the Umpqua College “shooting,” the San Bernardino “terrorist attack” and most recently the Orlando nightclub shooting event are so weak and implausible that journalists and the public alike, with an Orwellian combination of cognitive dissonance and fear, automatically place even modest critical faculties in abeyance and defer to state officials taking turns at the podium. 

Sometimes, however, the media’s deceit is much more forthright. For example, one may conclude that strong evidence along these lines exists if a major newspaper chain inadvertently publishes a detailed story on a mass shooting across its platforms from a major wire service before the event has transpired. This appears to be what Canada’s Postmedia did with an Associated Press story its outlets published one day before the San Bernardino incident allegedly took place. The posts, captured in screen shots here, have since been scrubbed from the company’s sites.

History provides clear examples of news media complicity in political conspiracies, including their full-fledged use by state actors. For example, as presented in Oliver Stone’s masterful JFK, on November 22, 1963 Col. Fletcher Prouty was halfway around the world in New Zealand when that country’s newspapers published detailed accounts of President Kennedy’s assassination hours before the tragic event.

“For those of us who just happened to be in far-off Christchurch, New Zealand,” Prouty recalls, “the Kennedy assassination took place at seven-thirty on the morning of Saturday, November 23, 1963.” He continues,

As soon as possible, the Christchurch Star hits the streets with an “Extra” edition. One quarter of the front-page was devoted to a picture of President Kennedy. The remainder of the page was, for the most part, dedicated to the assassination story, from various sources. Who were those sources, and how could so much intimate and detailed biographic information about Oswald have been obtained instantaneously? The answer is that it wasn’t obtained “instantaneously.” It had to have been prepared before the crime, and like everything else, prepackaged by the secret cabal. 

This “instant” news, available so quickly and completely in far-off New Zealand, is the most important detail of the murder plan. This newspaper ran an “Extra” edition that was on the streets before noon in Christchurch. It ran news items filed by experienced on-the-spot reporters in Dallas, who reported that the President was hit with a “burst of gunfire.” A few lines below, it said, “three bursts of gunfire, apparently from automatic weapons” were heard.[1]

With the above in mind the following evidence suggests a similar dynamic at play in news media to this day.

On December 1, 2015 Canada’s Postmedia news outlets published the AP wire story, “‘They came prepared to do what they did’: At least 14 dead, 17 hurt after California  shooting spree,” recounting the San Bernardino shooting on many of its platforms, including Ottawa Citizen, Windsor Star, Montreal Gazette, Regina Leader-Post, and Saskatoon Star-Phoenix.

Yet the official narrative the San Bernardino mass shooting states that the event didn’t take place until the afternoon of December 2. This is at least according a foremost chronicler of state-sanctioned storylines, Wikipedia, whose role in this regard now rivals the New York Times.

On December 2, 2015, 14 people were killed and 22 were seriously injured in a terrorist attack at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California, which consisted of a mass shooting and an attempted bombing. The perpetrators, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, a
married couple living in the city of Redlands, targeted a San Bernardino County Department of Public Health training event and holiday party, of about 80 employees, in a rented banquet room. Farook was an American-born U.S. citizen of Pakistani descent, who worked as a health department employee. Malik was a Pakistani-born lawful permanent resident of the United States.

After the shooting, the couple fled in a rented sport utility vehicle (SUV). Four hours later, police pursued their vehicle and killed them in a shootout. On December 3, 2015, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) opened a counter-terrorism investigation. On December 6, 2015, in a prime-time address delivered from the Oval Office, President Barack Obama defined the shooting as an act of terrorism.

According to FBI Director James B. Comey, the FBI’s investigation revealed that the perpetrators were “homegrown violent extremists” inspired by foreign terrorist groups.

Each of the articles appearing in Postmedia’s subsidiary papers above have a byline listing reporter Douglas Quan. Thus MHB reached out to Mr. Quan via email, presenting him with the above screen captures and requesting an explanation for the publication snafu. As of this writing Quan has not responded to the query.



Quan’s edited wire story appearing in Postmedia’s premier publication, the National Post, was either correctly held off until December 2, or the paper changed the publication date ‘ex post facto.’



Again, the news media’s involvement in such deep events is not new. Intelligence agencies’ infiltration of mass media has a long history and is understandable given the journalist’s information-gathering role. Yet because a large portion of the public still look to such outlets for objective information and reportage, these activities constitute fraud on a colossal scale.

The above is yet another example of how corporate (and government)-controlled news media today cannot be trusted to honestly report the news. Since these media are not involved in true journalism in the first place, their activities do not even rise to the level of journalistic malpractice. They continue to function because they are economically powerful.

Yet more importantly, major media proceed since criminal manipulation of public opinion on this scale is far beyond the imagination of most people. Such organizations function as appendages of a corrupted state power that makes no secret of its intent to deceive, and whose ultimate purpose is to rob the people of their civil liberties, their material possessions, and their psychic well-being.

42 thought on “San Bernardino ‘Terror Attack’: Did a Major News Company Accidentally ‘Jump the Gun’?”
  1. Several witnesses insist the San Bernardino shooting was Done by three tall white males with athletic builds.

    The muslim couple were as much bystanders as was James Holmes.

    1. Agitprop provocateurs will keep this going long as people are willing to believe their theater. One narrative to the next, they script based on how the public is responding to the CINEMA.

      1. Coastx, Exactly so, sir. The entire script is false, since it was a hoax (nonevent). Script is purposely larded w inconsistencies to involve people: So long as the public is mulling over “perps A or perps B” they are giving credence to the story. True answer is neither A nor B– NO ONE.
        There is an important aspect to the story which is not being reported: WHY SB was chosen. This “incident” was the mask for a security drill carried out to protect infrastructure and oligarchs’ assets in the event of civil disturbance (which is predictable given their plans for us, including the next monetary system, other steps along the path to the world oligarchy).
        Please see Perot companies, managed by Ross Perot, Jr, own a LOT of San Bernardino. The “chase” was right around them. Maybe a sort of security rehearsal. Infragard involved. Major transportation hub of port and rail; also important water . Infragard public/private partnership to practice protecting infrastructure, assets, goods. (This part not shown on TV)

        1. Counties that host TDs are rewarded with the opportunity to apply for federal grant money to upgrade their police and sheriff the consequence of which to the public is the loss of the 9th and 10th amendments via terms of the grant.

        2. Same idea when the ‘German’ method of public ‘schooling’ was forced down everyone’s throat here. Then the Fed money and control came in. Learning shouldn’t happen in a public school setting which is unconstitutional anyway. Learning should be a state and private matter. Once the feds have you it’s difficult to wean from that teat.

  2. Crisis Strategy Agitprop Street Theater (CAST) in this case was sponsored by DOD/Obsidian Analysis the reward of which for the host county of San Bernardino (in bank ruptcy) was federal terrorism grant money to upgrade police and sheriff resources. Gun control was a part of this and an attempt to build public support for a US attack on Syria to br rid of CIA installed ISIS. Insoucinace in California is a disease, the peopke of this state so lethargic it’s amazing they are out and about even ablexto act human let alone think more criticalky about their circumstances. They will wake up after the damage is done, after targeted communities have been transformed right in frontvof them, AFTER San Bernardino is converted to a Sancturay City, and A F T E R the 1.5 million resitents of this county realize Mayor Carey Davis is the LDS eugenics hybrid product of the uinon between David O. McKay and 1951 abduction victim, Beverly Potts. Currently, there is no conscience in this public headed for reconstruction under the guidance of the League of California Cities.

    1. I think someone miscalculated Central/PST time zones.

      It would be 7:30 am 11-23-1963 in New Zealand if JFK was shot at 12:30pm 11-22-1963 PST but it was Texas, Central Time Zone, so the Assassination was reported 2 hours too early.

      I’m going to assume the person(s) were thinking in PST and probably were here in Ca.

      If JFK had been shot in Los Angeles at 12:30pm on the 22nd, then it would have been 7:30 am on the 23rd in New Zealand

      John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, was assassinated at 12:30 p.m. Central Standard Time (18:30 UTC) on Friday, November 22, 1963, in Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas

      It was 9:30 am the next morning in New Zealand when he was shot.

        1. Good job, Ric! Did you account for the difference in Daylight Savings Time? We use different dates, and ours is falling back around when the US is leaping forward. So the time difference between our countries isn’t always the same.

        2. By November we are all back to regular time here in states. So if New Zealand was on DST then we’d have to recalculate the times.

          If the NZ paper published the JFK story at 7:30 am your time, that would have been 2 hours AFTER JFK was shot.

          Jame’s can you make your case on this claim? I’m getting a Time Zone Headache…..

  3. “Tomorrow Never Dies” but born yesterday.

    Watch and listen to the BBG, CFR, IBB feeds and see how the story changes depending on where it is to be delivered. The Voice of America and Electromagnetic Visual Audio Network spectrum make mistakes often due to the complicated nature of the WorldNet system. There is a high priority to get the cloud and A.I in place to avoid the ‘human error’ factor. Some people are very busy with algorithm and programming.

    You can see the NDAA that Obama signed as the defacto rule that allows the limited hangouts and disclosures to be total fiction or least of all accurate.

    Obama and his handlers can now legally assassinate the characters of renegade journalism and that means as a fiction they can kill you. Any wonder we are getting what we deserve for years of apathy and ignorance.

  4. The importance of the First Amendment was embraced by our Forefathers when they wrote the Constitution! That is why it is the FIRST Amendment.
    Left unscrutinized, Governments inevitably become corrupt! The watchful eye of the media, which should be accountable to the People, is what’s needed to keep them in check!
    Of course, it’s important that we have the freedom to express ourselves as we so choose, be free to practice the religion of our choice, and have the right to peacefully assemble, but that is not the primary purpose. All of these rights are under attack.
    Unfortunately, concentrated wealth and power have corrupted our system for decades now, and the ability of the people to have any affect on government has been practically eliminated.
    Absolute power leads to absolute corruption and that is the state in which we live.
    These False Flag attacks have been viewed as an affront to the 2nd Amendment, which is our right to bear arms. This, of course, has nothing to do with hunting or protecting ourselves from burglars, but everything to do with being able to defend against government corruption! Unless we are equally prepared to deal with those who would choose to rule over us, we shall be ruled ! This is just as true today as it was when the Constitution was written.
    Without the protections afforded us by the First and Second Amendments, we are at the mercy of the Federal Government, which, I believe, has been stripped from the people and remanded over to Corporate powers.
    When the entire system is so corrupted I don’t know how we can rectify the situation. I would be willing to do whatever is necessary to enact change, but alas, I feel as though I am in the minority as too many of us are content to just work our jobs, watch sports and drink the koolaid (or beer).
    I hope there never comes a day that we have to look back and wish we would have done more . . .

  5. I’m a bit confused. the Wikipedia article clearly says the shooting started at 10:59 PST. The segment of the article printed here doesn’t even refer to a time.

    1. The Wikipedia article of course gives the date of Dec. 2, not Dec. 1. Also, I know nothing about these CA papers. Do they print a paper edition and did a paper edition print these stories on Dec.1?

      1. These were posted online. I went to buy a paper one, and there was nothing in there yet. I discovered the Marysville mistake because I was on the Ottawa Citizen site looking at photos of the fake Parliament shootings (that brought in Bill C-51, Canada’s Patriot Act) on Thursday. There was a breaking newsfeed about the shooting. I was reading a different paper on Saturday, and they were running stuff about the shooting. I was thinking, that happened on Thursday. Why are they running old news? I went back to the Citizen website, and noticed the discrepancy. They had four articles online with the wrong date. I noticed that Calgary Herald had blown it as well.

        1. These are major Canadian daily newspapers. They still have a print version as well as an online version. Post Media also bought the competing Sun chain, so there is no real competition for newspapers. They have also bought a lot of the family-owned weeklies around the country, so they are a monopoly now.

  6. Both the Ottawa Citizen and the Calgary Herald blew it with the Marysville Pilchuck school shooting. Note the cutline under the photo reads October 24, 2014 whereas the byline reads S. Warren AP October 23,2014. The Citizen has scrubbed it, but there are still three listings if you Google Marysville Pilchuck school shooting Calgary Herald. search results (I put spaces after the www. due to moderation.

    1. Do you realize just how Big the Conspiracy is if the MSM already knows there is going to be a shooting, prepares the article ahead of time and Fails to warn the American Public before it happens?

      1. Yes I am Dub,
        But I’m Just the Janitor because I refused to sit in a Coffin and..I’ll stop there..You Know..Haha

        These “Elites” are just sicko freaks with Mad bank from daddy “Blue Blood”. Whole other conversation.

  7. Google jumped the gun on Orlando also don’t forget.

    Google Search Engine Picked-Up ORLANDO ATTACK NEWS STORY 6 Hours BEFORE attack took place!-Omar Mateen Employer G4S Is A Client Of Crisis Actor Company CrisisCast.Com

    The Google news search engine picked-up a Chicago Sun-Times Network article about the attack at an Orlando nightclub 6 hours BEFORE the attack took place! The attack occurred around 2:00 AM eastern US time on Sunday, June 12.

    But the Chicago Sun-Times Network has the following story about the attack.


    Take a look at the obituaries. There should be a lot of obituaries of young people after the club event. There are none of the people in here. The paper ran news stories about the people, but they didn’t have funeral information. The articles they ran under the title obituary were not. They were news articles. There are no “survived by” or “predeceased by” in those. Funeral homes usually put their logo at the bottom. I don’t know about Florida, but my lawyer wanted a copy of the obituary after my mother passed away as part of the record.

    This is what they tried to pass off as the obituaries. (Again, I put a space after the www since multiple links end you up in purgatory.)

  9. Exquisite article from the one true academic capable of such writing. I do not have anything juicy to add other than profound admiration. Thank you Dr. Tracy and please keep blessing us with such insightful analysis!


  10. The Constitution/Bill of Rights are noble cause written for the people the back drop of which= troika statist shadow government that knows all the control levers.

    Statists= corporate, eugenics (LDS) and frat puppet leadership (Scottish Rite Freemasons). People will NEVER figure this out. If it’s not laced with exotic fast food, indiscriminate sex, degenerate entertainment and total NEUROTIC HAPPINESS, Canaan America will have nothing to do with it.

    Sick culture. No META civics, so no salvation, San Bernardino a lesson in the occult people have no clue is the brain child of Scottish Rite/LDS malingering with kidnapping for torture (David O. McKay+ Beverly Potts/1951-5= Mayor Carey Davis).

    Connect the dots on Google Earth> Sylvia Marie Flores (SABRA perped) whose body was placed on Almond Avenue in Redlands on a straight line cartographic with the Redlands LDS temple and Melchizedek controlled Katherine Finchy Elementary School in Palm Springs for your education in macabre.

    This is what they do while San Bernardino GOYIM are doing this> LOL Kewl OMG LMAO ANAI.
