Not one person turns in bump stocks to Denver Police after they were banned

From KDVR: No bump stocks have been turned over to Denver authorities after the city banned the accessories used in last year’s mass shooting in Las Vegas that killed 58 people and injured hundreds.

Denver Police police last monthinvited city residents to turn in any bump stocks in their possession but Denverite reports that none have been handed over.

The ban on bump stocks approved by the city council in January was considered largely symbolic. Denver had previously banned the types of semi-automatic rifles that can be modified with bump stocks.

A bump stock is a device that can increase the speed in which a gun can be fired.

The council also made it illegal in most situations to possess magazines that hold more than 15 rounds of ammunition.

Fines under the new Denver law could be as much as $1,000 and up to 180 days in jail.



Fake News: Vatican distorted Pope Benedict XVI’s letter praising Pope Francis

Section 1, Chapter 1, Article 8, No. 1853 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church states:

Sins can be distinguished according to their objects, as can every human act; or according to the virtues they oppose, by excess or defect; or according to the commandments they violate. They can also be classed according to whether they concern God, neighbor, or oneself; they can be divided into spiritual and carnal sins, or again as sins in thought, word, deed, or omission.

Four days ago came news from the Vatican that in a letter Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI praised his successor, Pope Francis, as a “man of profound philosophical and theological formation,” and that there is an “inner continuity” between his pontificate and that of Pope Francis.

Benedict had written the letter in thanks for having received an advance copy of a series of books on the theology of Pope Francis, released on the eve of Francis’ 5-year anniversary as pope.

The Vatican, in the person of Msgr. Dario Edoardo Viganò, prefect of the Vatican’s Secretariat for Communication, released this photo (see below) of Benedict’s letter, next to the stacked series of 11 books on Francis’ theology. Note that only the first page of the letter is visible.

In the portion of Benedict’s letter made public by the Vatican Press Office we read the following:

“I applaud this initiative that seeks to oppose and react to the foolish prejudice according to which Pope Francis would only be a practical man devoid of particular theological or philosophical formation, while I would have been only a theoretician of theology that understood little of the concrete life of a Christian today.

The little volumes rightly show that Pope Francis is a man of profound philosophical and theological formation and they help therefore to see the internal continuity between the two pontificates, even with all the differences of style and temperament.”

Nicole Winfield reports for the Associated Press that on March 14, 2018, the Vatican admitted that it had altered the photo of Pope Benedict XVI’s letter about Pope Francis, which changed the meaning of the image in a way that violated photojournalist industry standards.

Most independent news media, including The Associated Press, follow strict standards that forbid digital manipulation of photos. The AP norms, considered to be the industry standard among news agencies, states that “No element should be digitally added to or subtracted from any photograph.”

The Vatican admitted it had blurred the two final lines of the first page of Pope Benedict’s letter where he begins to explain that he had not actually read the books in question, and therefore cannot contribute a theological assessment of Francis as requested by Msgr. Vigano because he has other projects to do.

According to the AP, Msgr. Vigano read only parts of Benedict’s letter during a press conference launching the series of 11 books on Francis’ theology, including the lines that were blurred out. But Vigano didn’t read the whole letter. The Vatican didn’t respond to a request to see the full text.

Remember the sin of omission?

This is what Pope Benedict XVI, age 90, actually wrote in his letter, which is concealed by the Vatican (source: The Remnant):

“However, I don’t feel I can write a brief and dense theological passage on them because throughout my life it has always been clear that I should write and express myself only on books I had really read. Unfortunately, if only for physical reasons, I am unable to read the eleven volumes in the near future, especially as other commitments await me that I have already assumed.

[Tuttavia non mi sento di scrivere su di essi una breve e densa pagina teologica perché in tutta la mia vita è sempre stato chiaro che avrei scritto e mi sarei espresso soltanto su libri che avevo anche veramente letto. Purtroppo, anche solo per ragioni fisiche, non sono in grado di leggere gli undici volumetti nel prossimo futuro, tanto più che mi attendono altri impegni che ho già assunti.]”

In other words, Pope Benedict XVI is saying:

  1. He has not read the series of 11 slim volumes on Pope Francis’ theology.
  2. Consequently, he cannot comment on Pope Francis’ theology, as Mgsr. Vigano requested.
  3. Furthermore, Pope Benedict XVI has no intention to read the series because he has other things to do.

That being said, Pope Benedict XVI did send mixed messages in his letter. As Christopher A. Ferrara of The Remnant points out:

The fact remains, however, that Benedict has lent his name and signature to the fraudulent claim that Bergoglio [Pope Francis’ real name] exhibits a profound philosophical and theological formation, even though he has spent the past five years engaged in shallow mockery of “the theologians,” whom he would consign to a desert island, while shamefully misrepresenting the teaching of Saint Thomas as supportive of his campaign to admit public adulterers to Holy Communion. […]

Despite its contrary signaling, therefore, Benedict’s letter to Vigano must be seen as cooperation in a scheme to rescue Bergoglio’s imploding papacy from itself, no matter what Benedict’s subjective intention may have been in going along with the ruse. The letter’s claim of an “internal continuity” between his pontificate and Bergoglio’s is a transparent evasion of the truth. “Internal continuity” is just another way of saying “apparent lack of continuity.” Nor can the apparent lack of continuity be reduced to “differences of style and temperament.” There is not an even arguable continuity between the two Popes regarding the dominant theme of Bergoglio’s pontificate: an absolutely unparalleled attack on the Sixth Commandment and even the natural law, far more dramatic than Bergoglio merely trudging along the path of “ecumenism,” “dialogue” and “liturgical renewal” established at Vatican II. […]

Benedict would have to know in particular that Chapter 8 of Amoris Laetitia reduces the Sixth Commandment, an exceptionless precept of the divine and natural law, to a mere “rule” and an “ideal” that does not bind strictly in certain “complex circumstances,” thereby smuggling into the life of the Church, under the guise of “authentic Magisterium,” precisely the evil of situation ethics that John Paul II condemned. […]

The unprecedented and untenable division of the Church into traditionalist, “conservative” and liberal branches, with Bergoglio now clumsily attempting to saw off the first two branches, signals an historical turning point at which it seems only divine intervention of the most dramatic sort will be able to restore the Church [….]

The curious case of Parkland school shooting victim Kyle Laman

Yesterday, Tony Mead posted on his Facebook page a YouTube video of 15-year-old Kyle Laman, one of the wounded in the February 14 mass shooting incident at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

See Mead’s guest post of January 17, 2018: “Satanic Pedophilia Within Our Society”.

Soon after Mead published that post, Facebook issued him a stern warning — that the post “contains content that violates our Terms of Use” — and unilaterally took it down.

Facebook warning to Tony Mead

If you go to the link of Mead’s post, you now get this message:

Facebook‘s reason for taking down Mead’s post (“A post you made contains content that violates our Terms of Use”) is at once ambiguous and broad because Facebook‘s Terms of Service are many and numerous. Without specifying which term of service Mead allegedly had violated, the statement “A post you made contains content that violates our Terms of Use” amounts to a catch-all excuse to justify arbitrary censorship.

So what was so offensive about Tony Mead’s post?

This is the NBC Today news video that Mead posted:

As Americans, whose exercise of free speech is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, we respectfully ask the following four questions about the NBC news video:

(1) NBC reporter Kerry Sanders said “a round of AR-15 tore through” Kyle Laman’s ankle.

New Health Advisor has a page, “Can I Walk on Fractured Ankle”. A fractured ankle is defined as “when a bone at or near the ankle joint breaks.” Kyle Laman’s ankle was more than fractured, having been “torn through” by “a round of AR-15”. Kyle Laman’s ankle was shattered.

In the case of a fractured ankle, New Health Advisor says:

It is usually very difficult to put weight on your fractured ankle and you should not put any weight on your broken ankle for the first few weeks at least (most commonly 6-8 weeks). Just walk with assistance and shifting weight to the good foot . . . . Some people even feel dizzy or sick mainly due to the pain and shock of breaking their ankle.

In Kyle Laman’s case, his ankle had just been “torn through” by “a round of AR-15”. How did he manage to not only walk, but “run down three flights of stairs”? He even had the presence of mind to give authorities a “complete description” of the shooter — what the shooter was wearing, and even the type of weapon he was using.

Here’s a closeup of Kyle Laman’s ankle wound — a vivid visual of how his ankle literally was “torn through” by “a round of AR-15”. This makes it even more unbelievable that he could have “run down three flights of stairs”.

Source: TMZ (h/t FOTM reader yyz)

(2) According to New Health Advisor, a fractured ankle is treated with a plaster cast — “It is important to put your fractured ankle in a plaster cast for at least six weeks“.

In the NBC Today video, which was published to YouTube on March 2, 2018, just 16 days after Kyle Laman’s ankle had been “torn through” by “a round of AR-15,” his shattered — not fractured — ankle is not in a plaster cast. Instead, in the screenshot below, from the 0:41 mark in the video, Laman’s leg is fitted with what appears to be a metal leg-stabilizer.

Kyle Lama's foot 0.41 mark

Below are two closeups of Laman’s wounded ankle between those metal braces or stabilizer (source: TMZ). Is this the way to treat a “torn through” ankle? I would appreciate the expert opinion of readers with orthopedic surgical knowledge.

(3) The above image is curious for another reason — Laman’s foot doesn’t seem to have toe nails. Why’s that?

I’ve cropped the image and enlarged it:

Kyle Laman's foot 0.41 mark

Is the foot a prosthetic?

Below is another closeup of Laman’s injured foot at an earlier time, which I’d cropped and enlarged from a CBS Miami pic (h/t yyz:

(4) Then there is the matter of Laman’s wandering wounded leg.

Here’s a screenshot I took at the 0:12 mark, showing Laman’s wounded leg to be his right leg:

Kyle Laman's leg 0.12 mark

But in the screenshot below, at the 1:56 mark, the curvature of Laman’s body suggests the wounded leg is now his left leg. I had to really slow down the video in order to grab that screenshot because right after the camera shows Laman’s wounded left leg, it quickly cuts away.

Kyle Laman's leg 1.56 mark

There is a Go Fund Me soliciting donations for Kyle Laman, with a goal of raising $50,000. As of this morning, $38,820 have been donated.

There is also a GoFundMe campaign created by the Broward Education Foundation, with a goal of $3 million, which will be used to provide relief and financial support to the victims and families, including Kyle Laman. As of the afternoon of March 10, 2018, $2,779,740 have been donated.

Florida school shooting shills are out in full force

Immediately after the Valentine’s day shooting massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, calls for gun control began.

But this time it’s different. While there are the usual gun-control advocates — Democrat politicians and Hollywood celebrities — new advocates have joined the all-out effort, including not just Parkland students, but other schools across America.

Below are two other, quite striking, gun-control advocates.

(1) Counter-terrorism expert Philip Mudd

Philip Mudd claims to have “decades of experience as an analyst and executive at the CIA, FBI, and the White House National Security Council”.

On the day of the shooting, Mudd was interviewed by CNN — the network that faked a “live” report from the 1991 Gulf War; faked a report from Liberia on the Ebola epidemic in 2014; staged a fake Muslim “peace protest” in 2017; and has a producer who was caught on camera admitting that the Trump-Russia story is “bullshit” fake news — and broke down on camera, choking and sobbing.

Yesiree, we are to believe that a media “counter-terrorism expert” with “decades of experience” in the FBI and CIA, which would have included experience with violence, broke down on camera over a school shooting.

But not a tear for the millions of young lives who are aborted each year because, unlike the Parkland school students, their lives don’t count.

By the way, Philip Mudd is rabidly anti-Trump.

On January 11, 2018, in another CNN “expert” interview, referring to President Trump’s alleged “shithole countries” comment, Mudd said he is proud to be a “shitholer” because he is Italian and a descendant of people who left Italy when it was a “shithole.”

(2) Catholic priest Gerald Coleman

Fr. Gerald Coleman, a Jesuit, is an adjunct professor in the Graduate School of Pastoral Ministries at Santa Clara University.

In a commentary on the Parkland School shooting, Coleman opines:

“It is time to stop dancing around the issue of gun violence by misrepresenting what the real problem is. Now is the appointed time for Congress to pass stringent laws regarding the very possession of guns.

Mental health is not what makes America uniquely vulnerable to gun violence. Research has demonstrated that people with mental illnesses are more likely to be victims, not perpetrators, of gun violence. The mentally ill should not bear the burden of being regarded as the chief perpetrators of mass murder.

The real problem is guns, specifically America’s extraordinary stockpile of firearms. The U.S. has the highest number of guns in the world. This is the core problem, pure and simple….

America has more lethal violence than other developed countries, and this fact is driven in large part by the prevalence of guns….

We must demand universal background checks for those wanting to purchase guns, make licensing requirements more stringent, place outright bans on certain types of firearms such as automatic and semi-automatic rifles, shotguns and other types of assault weapons, establish a registry for all guns owned in the country, require a permit for all firearm purchases, curtail gun trafficking, and wage campaigns against all film producers who glorify violent action and the dehumanization of persons.

America has become resistant to doing anything about this issue because some feel ‘powerful’ by owning a gun, and the decades-long public campaign by the National Rifle Association to convince the U.S. public and politicians that bearing arms and having more guns actually make people safer.”

I did a search for “Fr. Gerald Coleman on abortion,” but found only an apologia he wrote, in The Catholic Voice on November 7, 2016, artfully defending how  Catholics (who presumably include him) can and should vote for pro-abort Democrats (who presumably include Hillary Clinton who supports late-term abortion) despite the fact that the Catholic Church regards abortion as an “intrinsic evil” — i.e., an evil so egregious, it is non-negotiable.

Coleman writes:

“A Catholic voter should not use a candidate’s opposition to an intrinsic evil to justify indifference to other important moral issues the candidate holds involving human life and dignity, e.g., environmental degradation, unjust discrimination . . . .”

Yesiree! On the authority of a Catholic priest, we are told that “unjust discrimination” — whatever that means — is way more important than the deliberate murder of entirely innocent, tiny human lives. /sarc

Who is David Hogg, Florida Parkland School shooting survivor?

In the aftermath of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, metropolitan Miami, Florida, a young man named David Hogg has appeared in many TV news videos and interviews, such as this one:

This is what David Hogg claims to be:

  • A 17-year-old student, a senior, at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (CNN).
  • The son of a FBI agent — the federal agency that is so maligned by President Trump.
  • He and his family moved to Florida several years ago, when he was a freshman. Hogg once wrote on Reddit about moving in the middle of his freshman year and how hard it was because so many people in high school weren’t authentic (Heavy).
  • Hogg is an aspiring broadcast journalist.
  • He said he was in his environmental science class when he heard the first gunshots, and that they never had an active shooter drill at the school.
  • He told CNN that during the shooting, he hid in a closet in the school — where he is a student. He said all he could think was “Tell the story.” So, while the gunman was shooting, the very brave Hogg pulled out his phone and interviewed people near him about what was happening because “I want to show these people exactly what’s going on when these children are facing bullets flying through classrooms and students are dying trying to get an education. If I was going to die, I wanted to die doing what I love, and that’s storytelling. And this is a story that needed to be heard. … At least our echoes, our voices would carry on and possibly make some action.”

Here’s the video Hobb took while he was hiding in a closet. So calm and so brave in the midst of a MASSACRE! — and with the presence of mind to advocate gun control!


But then, here’s a video of Hogg flubbing his lines. What survivor of a bloody school shooting does that?

And here’s David Hogg and other students who just survived the hellish ordeal of a bloody shooting massacre, having watched their fellow students get shot to death and wounded, laughing and whooping it up right before they put on their grim, sad faces for the TV camera.

Parkland shooting crisis actorsParkland shooting crisis actors1

Robert Runcie, superintendent of Broward County Schools, told the Tampa Bay Times that David Hogg (as well as another student “survivor” Emma Gonzalez) is indeed a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School:

“These are absolutely students at Stoneman Douglas. They’ve been there. I can verify that. Anything to disparage such brilliant and passionate youth who have the courage to stand up and do what they’re doing, I just think it’s outrageous and disrespectful for someone to make those allegations.”

The only problem with the above is that it was posted on Facebook that David Hogg had actually graduated more than two years ago, in 2015, from the Redondo Shores High School in Redondo, part of Greater Los Angeles, California.

And here’s confirmation that David Hogg is a 2015 graduate of Redondo Shores High School — he registered as one on

Below is a screenshot I took of David Hogg’s page on, showing the time (11:43 am) and date (2/21/2018) when I took the screenshot, in case Classmates removes the page. The page is also archived here.

↓Click image to enlarge↓

Now we know why he was captured in a TV news video in August 2017 in Redondo Beach, California, thousands of miles away from Parkland, Florida.

If David Hogg had already graduated from a California high school more than two years ago, in 2015, that means:

  • He is not 17 years old, but is at least 19.
  • He is not a student at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
  • He was not “hiding in a closet” in Stoneman Douglas High School during the shooting, filming himself advocating gun control.

Please contact Robert Runcie, superintendent of Broward County Schools, and ask him to produce evidence that David Hogg is registered as a student at Stoneman Douglas High School. To send him an email, click here.


There is a systematic effort to discredit the David Hogg 2015 Redondo Shores High School Yearbook as a “far right conspiracy theory”. See Business Insider.

It is said that the t-shirt worn by the student two rows above Hogg in the yearbook indicates that the yearbook is actually Stoneman Douglas High School, because the eagle is the mascot of Stoneman Douglas High School.

But the Stoneman Douglas High School t-shirts available don’t look like the one in the yearbook photo.

The shirt worn by the student two rows above David Hogg in the yearbook is most likely a Philadelphia Eagles t-shirt (h/t Vivian Lee):

UPDATE (Feb. 22, 2018):

Joey Wong tweeted a video showing the Yearbook with David Hogg’s pic is not Redondo Shores High School, but Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School:

The crisis actors of Florida Parkland School shooting

On the afternoon of February 14, 2018, Valentine’s Day, America was subjected to another mass school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, metropolitan Miami, Florida.

We are told that 17 people were killed and 15 more were taken to hospitals. The alleged perpetrator, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, a former student of the high school, was arrested shortly after the shooting and charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder. He confessed to the shooting, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office. (Wikipedia)

And, as in the case of past school shootings, calls for gun control immediately followed the Parkland school shooting but with a new twist. In addition to the “usual suspects” of politicians and amoral celebrities, students are also clamoring for gun control, never mind that Cruz had obtained his AR-15 legally and passed the required background checks. (See DCG’s “Hashtag solutions: Washington state student starts online campaign after Florida mass shooting“)

We are told only the official narrative, so we don’t really know what actually happened. But it is noteworthy that the Parkland school shooting carries the usual signatures of previous false-flag or contrived incidents:

  1. An active shooter drill just before or co-terminous with the actual shooting.
  2. Eye-witness reports of more than one shooter.
  3. Pre-dated news reports (on February 12 and 13) of the February 14 shooting.
  4. A decision to tear down the school, all the better to erase any and all evidence that might point to the shooting being a false-flag incident.

See “Florida Valentine’s Day school shooting: anomalies and confessed shooter

Now we can add another false-flag signature to the Parkland shooting — Crisis Actors. (See “Professional crisis actors simulate mass casualty events“)

Below is the evidence culled from Alt-Media memes and videos:

(1) A familiar face from previous mass shootings — the crying brunette. It’s remarkable that in the five years since the December 14, 2012 Sandy Hook hoax, she has kept the same hair-style and hair-parting-on-the-right.

(2) Another familiar face: the dyed-in-the-bottle blonde. She even kept her hair-parting on the right side since the October 2017 Las Vegas Mandalay Bay mass shooting!

(3) Fledgling crisis actors David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez, both Douglas High School student “survivors”:

Here’s Hogg and Gonzalez being interviewed and advocating gun control on CNN.

I took this screenshot in case YouTube takes down the CNN video:

Watch Hogg, who claims his father is an agent in the much-maligned (by Trump) FBI, flubs his line (Note: YouTube removed the video for “harassment and bullying“. Thankfully, someone had saved it):


Here’s Hogg in August 2017, in Redondo Beach, California, thousands of miles away from Parkland, Florida:

But wait!

How come Hogg, Gonzalez and other “survivors” of a terrible mass shooting were smiling, laughing and whooping it up moments before they put on their grim sad faces for the camera?

Just like Robbie Parker, father of slain 6-year-old Emilie, going from joking and laughing off camera to feigning tears before the camera:

Benjamin Kelly, the district secretary for Florida House of Representatives member Shawn Harrison (R-District 63), sent an email to Tampa Bay Times reporter Alex Leary asserting that Hogg and Gonzalez are crisis actors. Harrison immediately fired Kelly.

Lastly, be on the lookout for the crisis actor who bears a striking resemblance to CNN Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr (including even similar oblong-shaped eyeglasses!) — the network that faked a “live” report from the 1991 Gulf War; faked a report from Liberia on the Ebola epidemic in 2014; staged a fake Muslim “peace protest” in 2017; and has a producer who was caught on camera admitting that the Trump-Russia story is “bullshit” fake news.

Barbara Starr makes devil sign

Minutes after this post was published, a reader posted this on FOTM‘s Facebook page — David Hogg is not a Douglas High School student as he claims.

Full FISA Memo released!!!

See also “FISA Memo in text format. Lock them up!

About five minutes before 12 noon today, the House Intelligence Committee (HIC) released the notorious FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act ) memo.

Excerpts were posted by some websites before HIC released the FULL memo:

  • The Obama Administration’s FBI and DOJ used the unverified and wholly fictitious Russian dossier to successfully obtain from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court surveillance warrants on Trump and members of his campaign team — which makes the surveillance UNLAWFUL and ILLEGAL.

Note: The Russian dossier, including the wholly fictitious “golden shower” account, was concocted by ex-MI6 spook Christopher Steele, who was hired by “opposition research” company Fusion GPS that, in turn, had been commissioned by the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

  • Senior law enforcement officials testified during a closed classified session to the HIC, that without the unsubstantiated and wholly-ficitious “Russian dossier” on then-candidate Donald Trump, they would not have been able to obtain at least one surveillance warrant for a member of the Trump campaign.
  • The Obama Administration used Fusion GPS and Steele as part of an active campaign to brief lie to major media outlets.
  • Steele was no impartial researcher. In September 2016, Steele said to then-Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr that he “was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being president.”

Here’s the full 4-page FISA memo, declassified by order of President Donald Trump, February 2, 2018. (You can also view it for yourself on the House Intelligence Committee website, here):
