Media Exploiting Odessa Shooting Before Facts Known

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “The gunman, who was shot and killed by police, was described as a white male in his 30s.” USA Today informed its readers Sunday about Saturday’s murderous rampage in Odessa, TX. “Authorities have not yet released his name.”

That will probably change by the time this article is published, but the fact remains it is being composed on the morning after this high-profile incident, and it makes fair the question “Why not?”

Why don’t we know his name, yet the narrative-advancing tip that the armed maniac was “a white male in his 30s” is now known to all? Talk about an exploitable meme, especially if any hint of “nationalism” is involved.

Who this fiend was and what he advocated in life are relevant as we have recently seen, with the gun-grab groups and media deemphasizing or ignoring the “progressive” sympathies of the Dayton killer. As we’ve also recently noted, by NOT identifying the killer, we are dependent on what “officials” and their approved media megaphones tell us. That cuts independents (disparaged as “just a blogger” by “real journalists”) from doing their own fact checks. If anything, I'd like to see the mutant’s social media sites and everything about them left up so we can see for ourselves the mindset they had and from what ideologies they sprang, instead of what we see happening with increasing frequency – those accounts are taken down before the names of the killers are even released.

Those who say that shouldn’t matter always fail to account for one inconvenient truth when others are assigning “left/right” motives: The killers are NEVER believers in the Constitution because that ideology requires the commitment to champion the rights of the individual. Randomly executing strangers with no delegated authority and without due process is a rejection of all of that, and the work of a bloody-handed collectivist.

Without further information at this time, DSM propaganda organs resort to reminding readers about other exploited “mass shootings.” One USA Today update finds it important to call reader attention to a simultaneous rollback in a handful of Texas infringements as if correlation equates with causation. Of course, the one had nothing to do with the other, but logical fallacies are what gun-grabbers do.

The UK’s The Sun goes further, adopting a baby-endangerment theme by dancing in the blood of one who was injured and showing endearing family photos to tug at the hearts of and manipulate the reader. They do, however, offer another bit of information that USA Today chose not to share, and that may point to why information about the killer has been so slow to be released:

“Cops are yet to release the identity of the dead shooter – and only revealed he is a white male in his 30s who was known to police.”

How was he “known to police”? What is the extent of that knowledge? Was he known to be a danger? And if so, why are the ones who knew the sole arbiters of when to release the information and how it will be presented? Was he legally eligible to possess a gun, and did he observe the law in obtaining his? Enquiring minds want to know.

As admitted, by the time this article is published, we’ll likely know more, although how much more remains to be seen. We can bet that regardless, we’ll see renewed demands that we must do “something,” and a fresh round of equivocation and abandonment by increasingly nervous, and thus malleable, Republicans.

One truth comes out in The Sun report, despite the expected “progressive” ridicule of prayer whenever such is offered without unconditional surrender of the right to keep and bear arms:

“Pray that whatever is causing them to do this will be defeated by God and they will stop shooting.”

The Founders recognized that human beings “are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights.” To further borrow words from the Declaration of Independence, “experience hath shewn” that “the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God” are upheld by men, and that will hold true for the defeat of individual monsters and for the bloody-handed collectivists whose power-mad diktats make them not just possible, but inevitable.

UPDATE: As this article was being submitted, the following was released by the Odessa Police Department:

“There will be a press conference today at Noon at UTPB in the South parking lot.”

    All ‘gun control laws’ are un-Constitutional: Article 6, U.S. Constitution “The Constitution…shall be the supreme law of the land”. Therefore, no federal or state legislative law, Executive Order or local decree may limit, deny, change or modify the Constitution. THAT is called the ‘Supremacy Clause’. Article 6 continues “All laws must conform to and be made pursuant to the Constitution”. Therefore, any federal or state legislative law, Executive Order or local decree not in 100% harmony with the U.S. Constitution, is null & void. When Americans obey the un-Constitutional ‘gun control laws’, they tell the tyrant they will accept any… Read more »

    The Odessa shooter, like every mass shooter for the last 20 years, was a democrat! 24/7 we hear the democrats and democrat media scream “HATE!”, and “We will all DIE if the Republicans have their way!” and “Conservatives must be removed from our country!” scream the fascist democrat hate-mongers. When one of their useful idiots does as commanded, the democrats quickly blame it on conservatives and chip away at our Rights. Democrats DEMAND a communist America. They tell us everyday. The tyrannical communist democrats will control everyone and everything if they get any ‘climate change hoax’ laws passed. Armed citizens… Read more »

    It is now 9/3/2019. I just did a search, and could find no stories about this newer than 9/1. The gunman’s name was apparently given to MSM outlets an hour or so after the incident, but to my knowledge still has not been reported, even at outlets such as Breitbart. The gunman apparently shot at police, then drove away, and while being pursued, was still able to ditch his car (a gold Honda) and car jack a UPS delivery van. He then continued to drive around, shooting people at random. With a rifle. Have you ever tried to hit moving… Read more »

    Where did you find the name? It doesn’t appear anywhere in national news, not that I could find. Local papers?

    I just searched for “Odessa shooter” using Duck Duck Go (or you could use Startpage.com) and scrolled down till I saw his name mentioned in the preview.

    Duck Duck go works well. That is how some folks found his name in the county voter registration as a democrat.
    ALL MASS SHOOTERS for the last 20 years, or so, have been democrats.

    Lady called him in for threatening her with a rifle.one of his hobby was rooftop sniping pests.
    He had no active electrical and water and may have been a squatter.a few hours before the shooting he was fired from his trucking company and freaked them out enough to report him. THEY SAW THIS POS COMING.

    He was angry, and highly agitated at work even before he was fired. And yeah, everyone in a position to act saw this coming and LET it happen! INCLUDING THE FIBBIES.

    Another false flag event meant for the media to drive the angst, fear and cowardice of the public.
    https://qnation.us/odessa-texas-multiple-shooters/

    We can expect dozens of more these events because the communists are leveraging for the 2020 elections. Since we know they can never win through reasonable methods, they lie cheat and steal elections. Sadly, the average person is just that – average – and cannot comprehend the truth even when presented with facts. We are in for a roller coaster ride over the next year and some months so prepare.

    Well why didn’t they (Democrats) do “something ” in 2009 & 2010 when THEY had the House, Senate and Presidency??? Thousands of people including children were killed by “gun violence” prior and during this time , and not a single piece of legislation was passed.

    Absolutely nothing was done. Actually the right to carry in National Parks was passed.

    Do you mean after all these years why hasnt anybody cleaned up Chicago?, a total ban on firearms and every weekend theres mass shootings..maybe its because theres no more laws to pass so they’ll move on to another city to ban guns!

    Because, the democrats DEMAND a communist America. They must disarm us to have their communist country. After they have their communist America, they will just slaughter the welfare shooters in Chicongo. They will, also, slaughter any that oppose them, too.
    THAT is the history of communism. Without exception.

    And the saga continues. If it wasn’t guns it would be any inanimate object. I saw the headlines this morning that said a fourteen year old in Alabama shot and killed five relatives. It will take years of people living as families and teaching the kids proper respect to turn this around. There is another problem, the parents have to be smarter than the kids to teach them anything.

    In an interview on Fox News this morning, the shooter’s neighbor said that he would fire his AR style rifle out the window of his mobile home. She said that she had called police, but no one ever came to investigate the situation. Sounds like law enforcement dropped the ball on this one, big time. He had also been denied a firearms purchase by a background check on more than one occasion I’ve heard. Again, law enforcement screwed up, or maybe the gun seller.

    How can a gun retailer be to blame if he stopped the sale due to a rejected NICS check?? Sounds more like the cops dropped the ball, seeing as they were told about this man’s dangerous and criminal actions (shooting from his windows). We see this time and again. The El Paso shooter was known to the feds and they knew he was going to go on a rampage, but they let it happen anyway. https://dcdirtylaundry.com/fbi-had-foreknowledge-of-el-paso-shooters-murderous-plan-did-nothing/

    Everyone knows that the news media exploits tragedies to negatively shoot off their fully automatic mouths about the Second. Blah, Blah, Blah… It’s been said that if it bleeds, it leads. They definitely make good use of that, over and over and over. Sickening..

    The way the MSM abuses the 1st Amendment to destroy the rest of our Rights makes a good case for background checks, waiting periods, Red Flags, and other restrictions on the Democrat Propaganda Corps (aka MSM news).

    It was stated (“revealed”, “claimed”…) on our local news that this unknown person had recently failed one of those much desired background checks. Did LE follow up on that failure? Apparently not.

    I read it… beds in treatment facilities is only a small part of the solution. I did not find, in this article, mention of the one “dirty BIG secret” that, statistically, some 90% or more of perpetrators of mass killings (guns and/or other tools used) were, or recently had been, on one or more of a class of psychotropic drugs, mostly SSRI’s. Seems these often enter a young man’s life in grade school when he can’t sit still all day long (like the girls seem more able to do) in the VERY feminist environment. The huge percentage of kids being… Read more »

    Tionico; I also read about those drugs but it was a couple of years ago and I asked my doctor about would continued use have after effects, kind of put me off but did say they might, flat out wouldn’t say it but did want to get off of that question quick, a prescription pill society, let alone the illegal drugs that can be had, and all they talk about the use of guns, I don’t like taking aspirin for a headache!!!!!! But that is never brought to light, it’s all about THE GUNS ONLY, are causing the problem!!!!!

    Spot on…the legality of the deep state was established policy with the creation of national security council document #68 of 1950 and signed by Truman. https://www.trumanlibrary.org/whistlestop/study_collections/coldwar/documents/pdf/10-1.pdf

    The sv40 virus was found in polio vaccines that were administered between 1955 and 1963 to up to 30 million people in the USA and 1961 through 1965 to military members. At that time Rhesus monkey kidneys were used to manufacture the polio vaccines and the sv40 did not deactivate along with the polio virus. “A meta-analysis of molecular, pathological, and clinical data from 1,793 cancer patients indicates that there is a significant excess risk of SV40 associated with human primary brain cancers, primary bone cancers, malignant mesothelioma, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.” – citation from: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC452549/ This is an interesting page… Read more »

    Damning information that after he was fired that day his workplace called the Police and he himself called the Police and the FBI prior to firing his first shot.
