I’ve been reading HOLY BLOOD, HOLY GRAIL, which is supposedly the intellectual basis for The Davinci Code movies and books.
I’ll probably try to read it a couple of times once I’m done. It is providing some interesting references, but I have yet to get to a “What’s the point?” moment with the book.
I mean, if Jesus was just an all around likable guy who was a great public speaker with deep thoughts, it sort of makes the possibility he has descendants interesting but kind of moot. What made Jesus Christ special was his divinity, so if the authors are right and Jesus was a mere mortal, then why even bother debunking a bunch of poor inbred schlubs out of the belief that makes their special secret society special and secret?
If they had special powers, they would have installed their guy by now. The Merovingians went down around 500 a.d. Like I said, I’m not done with the book yet, but it seems like a good example of specious reasoning and inductive logic in many places. I may return to this topic at some point when I have reviewed it some more and have my ducks in a row.
Big doings in Paris last week. Seems a couple of fellows shot up a magazine office then shot a cop point-blank in the street. There is a video of the cop killing on the Net, and a lot of people are saying its fake. Their reasoning is there is not a copious amount of blood and gore from the victim, none actually. Also, it looks like the bullet actually hits the sidewalk in front of the cop if you watch the video in slow motion.
I must admit, I think if the bullet traveled through the cop’s head as it obviously did because you can see it bounce off the sidewalk, there would have been more blood and/or skull fragments. Now, the Mafia will supposedly kill somebody with a 22 caliber because the bullet isn’t strong enough to go straight through the skull and out. Instead, it will just ricocheted around inside the brain, insuring death.
Also, there was the matter of an ID the shooter left in the getaway car. I suppose it could happen, but it always aroused suspicion that on 911 they first IDed a suspect by finding their driver’s license on the sidewalk. A guy flies a jet into a building, his license leaves his pocket and flutters down to the sidewalk and is picked up by an alert pedestrian who hands it to a street cop who recognizes its significance. Unmitigated bullshit, of course, and one of the most glaring weaknesses of the 911 mythology.
Now, on to the supposed motivation for the shooting, which is offensive cartoons. Let’s examine this, and let’s also speculate why The White House is sort of distancing themselves from this whole thing by not sending a bigwig to the Paris rally of support. It might have something to do with the Libya debacle where the American ambassador was killed. The first version of the riot motivation was a movie which was offensive to Muslims. When this got debunked the ensuing embarrassment and coverup probably left the Obama White House a bit gun-shy with regards to helping serve up the Kool-Ade in this sort of situation.
The French need to not make the same mistakes America made after 911. France lost 100,000 men in a single battle during WW1. 12 people is 12 too many, of course, but one view is you just have a couple of hotheads who are so stupid they leave their ID on the scene and basically tell everyone they are Muslim terrorists at the scene by yelling the standard Chuck Norris Islamonut movie taglines, “God is Great” etc.
It could have been a false flag. Somebody wants to stir the pot so arms and trains some patsies and activates them. I wouldn’t be surprised.
3rd option-it was a combination of crisis actors and “heightened realism.” A couple of people got shot to make it look good, but it was mainly Kabuki theater by the “don’t waste a crisis” crowd.
My basic opinion is I’m not given enough information to form an opinion, so I don’t affirm one. I would expect more headline grabbing incidents of this nature, though, and I will explain why. First, visualize a Pie Chart.
Pie Carts are those circular graphs where you can visualize the percentage of a whole in parts easily. Graphs do work, because the mental snapshots are stored as quick references for problems and solutions, so it is worth understanding them.
“The Media” would be a pie chart if you took the percentages each news story got in a 24 hour news cycle. If a story gain traction, its slice of the pie would increase.
One pie slice getting bigger recently is the child sex trafficking scandal Jeff Epstein, Alan Dershowitz, Bill Clinton, Jeb Bush, and Prince Andrew were involved in. That story has legs. It will be back, because it is more interesting than a couple of French scribblers getting shot but by the time it reemerges there will have been time to disappear witnesses, buy people off, scare people off, whatever it takes.
It’s how they handle it. Control the news cycle. The only story in France is a cliche. Only outlaws have guns when guns are outlawed. Isn’t Europe one big, self righteous, gun-free zone? Frankly, I am seeing the offensive cartoons, and I see a positive side to the whole thing. In a Hannibal Lector kind of way, I do not deplore the death of these no talent rudies. I could draw better than those a-holes, and it was basically hate speech, which I thought was outlawed in Europe.
Since when does Europe care about free speech anyway? They put you in jail over there if you sit and calculate how many bodies can get ashed in a given number of crematoriums on a given day.
There is no business like Shoah business.
