“Orlando gay nightclub Pulse, 50 dead, 53 injured“
The shooter was killed after a long standoff. He was identified as Omar Sateen, 29, of Port Saint Lucie, Fla., which is about two hours south of Orlando.
Sateen is believed to may have had “leanings” toward radical Islam, according to Special Agent Danny Banks.
“All the killing that was done was with an assault rifle, a single weapon…it was done very quickly also,” said Rep. Alan Grayson, D, said Sunday morning. “There’s blood everywhere” in the club, he said.
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer said he had declared a state of emergency for the city and has requested the governor do the same for the state.
Multiple emergency vehicles responded, including the Orlando Fire Department’s bomb squad and hazardous material team. Police said via Twitter that a noise heard near the shooting site was a “controlled explosion.”
“a uniformed officer working extra duty exchanged gunfire”
Christopher Hansen, who was inside Pulse said he heard gunshots, “just one after another after another.” “It could have lasted a whole song,” he said.
“It’s appears he was organized and well-prepared,” Orlando Police Chief John Mina said . The shooter had an assault-type weapon, a handgun and “some type of (other) device on him.”
“Mateen had active security officer and firearm licenses, according to Florida records, and his family said he worked in security.” “a man who answered the phone at Mateen’s address, Mustafa Abasin…”

After Democratic filibuster, U.S. Senate will debate some gun limit.
After a more than 14-hour filibuster led by Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut, Democrats forced the Republican-led Senate to hold gun votes. The two sides appeared no closer to an agreement on gun legislation that can pass the Senate.
Still, the chamber is likely to vote on two Democratic-backed gun measures: a proposal from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) meant to bar those on federal terror watch lists from obtaining firearms, and a plan from Murphy and Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) mandating background checks for sales at gun shows and over the internet. Republicans are expected to put forward two of their own proposals for votes.

Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos spoke this morning with Alex Marlow on Breitbart News Daily about his Orlando press conference, at which he discussed Islam and gun rights in light of the recent nightclub shooting.
Milo was arguing for the preservation of gun rights, he claimed that gun-free zones are making American society more dangerous, particularly for minorities.
“Gun-free zones are the most dangerous places in America. Gun-free zones are safe spaces for killers. They are spaces where you can go if you are a maniac and you want to mow down dozens of people before anyone is able to mount a response because nobody is prepared. It’s the worst place to be if you are a vulnerable minority and you are worried about lunatics … from the religion of peace.”

Why do Voice contestants have security personnel anyway?
The following is an open letter issued by Kirk Colvin, the former general manager of the Plaza Live in Orlando, which is managed by the Orlando Philharmonic’s board.
“On June 1st, the board replaced Colvin and his team. On June 10th, Grimmie was approached by a lone gunman during a meet-and-greet backstage, and killed a near point-blank range.” source: www.digitalmusicnews.com/2016/06/14/security-team-shooting-christina-grimmie/
“I am a very private person but after the shooting of Christina and the endless media attention I’m compelled to release a personal statement for the clarity.
My heart goes out to the family of Christina who was a wonderful, talented up and coming artist murdered at The Plaza Live in this senseless tragedy. I’m thankful all the Plaza staff was quickly accounted for and safe.
For over 6 years I’ve managed to remain behind the scenes as the general manager of the Plaza LIVE, only a faceless name, and could walk through the Plaza with 99% of the patrons not knowing who I was. Now in light of the unfortunate actions taken by the Philharmonic board and the shooting last night I find myself having to defend my professional reputation since most patrons, artists, and agents think I was there last night managing the Plaza. Since the shooting I have fielded 100s of emails, texts, and phone call from folks wanting to know how this happened or press requests for interviews.
As of June 1st I was no longer employed by the board as the GM of the Plaza Live and have not been on site since. Having served in that position since 2010 I have personally managed 700+ events with 1,200+ artists without incident and I’m proud of my history at the Plaza and the personal touch I provided taking the time to know each artist’s music, history, and in many cases them.
It was not publicly known that the entire management team was replaced by the Orlando Philharmonic board on June 1st for the stated reason “to go in a different direction” and I believe the replacements hired were completely inexperienced and ill prepared to manage the Plaza. Given my history of saving the Plaza from bankruptcy and building it into one of Florida’s most respected concert venues I can only assume this was done to cut costs or worse due to personality conflicts with board members. Sadly this tragedy occurred the very first concert managed by the new staff.
I’m calling for those board members involved in making such an irresponsible decision to change the entire management without properly planning for an organized handover and transition should resign before they inflect more damage to the venue we all love and not attempt to place blame on anyone else for their poor judgment.

Posted on June 19, 2016 by Dr. Eowyn | 2 Comments linkThe Orlando Pulse-gay-nightclub shooting of June 12, 2016 isn’t just the worst or deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, it also has the distinction of having an astonishing number of people with known acting or camera experience.
To begin, there is the shooter himself, Omar Mateen, who had two acting credits according to the Internet Movie Database (IMDb). A day after I took the screenshot below, IMDb saw fit to delete one of them — Mateen’s appearance in the documentary, The Big Fix. (See “Orlando gay-club shooter is also an actor!“)
Then there is eyewitness Luis Burbano who claims to be in Pulse at the time of the shooting and admitted that he was the man who had held an exit door closed, ostensibly to keep the armed gunman from escaping, which makes no sense. What Burbano actually achieved was to prevent survivors from leaving the club.
On IMDb, Burbano is identified to have five acting credits. A day after I had taken a screenshot of his acting credits (see below), IMDb also scrubbed one of the credits — Burbano’s portrayal of a “club patron” in the 2015 music video “Spirit of Orlando: Shooting Up”.
This post is about three other Orlando-shooting individuals with acting or on-camera experiences:
Eyewitness Christopher Hansen (Andrew Bowser)
Chief medical examiner Dr. Joshua Stephany
TV intern reporter Patience Carter
1. Christopher Hansen/Andrew Bowser
Christopher Hansen is the bearded man in a hat and an American-flag t-shirt who was interviewed by various media outlets as an eyewitness. He can also be seen in video carrying a shooting victim strangely toward, instead of away from, the Pulse nightclub crime scene.
Daily Telegraph identifies Hansen as a “Pulse patron” who was in the VIP lounge when the shooting broke out and who managed to escape the club unharmed. Expressing disbelief at the situation, Hansen said, “I was thinking, ‘Are you kidding me?’ So I just dropped down. I just said, ‘Please, please, please, I want to make it out.’ And when I did, I saw people shot. I saw blood.”
But Christopher Hansen looks very much like a professional actor named Andrew Bowser who claims to have developed a “cult following” portraying “quirky characters” inserted into real-life news events, such as pretending to be a weird Arby employee in this news video:
And as a Satanist at the erecting of a Baphomet statue 11 months ago in Detroit, Michigan (See “Detroit goes to the devil”): youtu.be/IRRDUF1dzSU
Andrew Bowser’s IMDb (Internet Movie Database) profile describes him as “An up and coming Director/Actor, famous for his quirky characters and viral YouTube videos,” whose characters are “wonderfully deceiving”. Bowser’s “Filmography” has 10 acting credits, 7 director credits, 3 writer credits, 4 producer credits, 1 cinematopher credit, 1 sound department credit, and 1 archive footage credit.
Below is a side-by-side comparison of Christopher Hansen and satanist Andrew Bowser — both are bearded, have similar eyebrows and noses, and have a fondness for hats.

2. Dr. Joshua Stephany
Dr. Joshua StephanyJoshua Stephany is the chief medical examiner in charge of the Orlando shooting.
He also has a page on IMDb, with one acting credit as “himself,” a forensic pathologist, in 6 episodes of the 2005-2008 TV series Dr. G: Medical Examiner. Here’s a screenshot I took at 3:36 PM on June 18, 2016 of Stephany’s profile on IMDb :

As reported by Frank Torres for The Orlando Political Observer on June 16, 2016, four days after the Pulse nightclub shooting, Dr. Stephany was only just confirmed for a 3-year term as Orange County Chief Medical Examiner. Prior to his appointment, Stephany had been Interim Chief Medical Examiner after the retirement of Dr. Jan Garavaglia in May 2015. “Dr. G Medical Examiner” was known nationwide for her television show on the Learning Child and testimony in the Casey Anthony Trial.
3. Patience Carter
Then there is Patience Carter, 20, who also claims to be an eyewitness and survivor of the Pulse gay-club shooting massacre. Here she is in a 25+minutes appearance relating her harrowing experience, beginning with an emotional recitation of a poem she wrote.
It turns out Carter also has camera/acting experience, having been an intern at Fox29 TV in Philadelphia.
It is astonishing how many actors were involved in the Orlando shooting! The probability of that occurring by random chance stretches one’s credulity.

Howell Says CIA and Four Other Suspects were Involved in Planned Sunday Massacres
Sources within the Santa Monica police department claim that James Wesley Howell, an Indiana man who was caught with explosives and weapons on Sunday Morning, told the Santa Monica police that as many as five people were involved in planned attacks on gay communities in both Florida and California.
According to the LA Times, Santa Monica Police Chief Jacqueline Seabrooks initially said on Twitter that the 20-year-old Indiana man (James Howell) told one of her officers after he was arrested that he wanted “to harm the Gay Pride event.”
However, after the FBI quickly took over the case, a Santa Monica police spokesman Saul Rodriguez indicated that Seabrooks was mistaken and offered that the Santa Monica detectives who were working the case are “not aware of what the suspect’s intentions were at this point.”
You want proof? Call the Santa Monica PD, they released this story. SMH

Please share this vigorously and help me fight this false flag event.
THWARTED LOS ANGELES GAY PRIDE KILLER JAMES HOWELL SAYS HE WAS A CO-CIA OPERATIVE WITH OMAR MATEEN AND OTHERS TO ATTACK GAYS IN CALIFORNIA AND FLORIDA !
The official version of this story released by the LA Times falsely claims that on early Sunday, Santa Monica police received a call about a suspected prowler who was knocking on a resident’s door and window about 5 a.m. in the 1700 block of 11th Street, Santa Monica police said.
Patrol officers responded and encountered Howell, who was sitting in a car registered in Indiana, police said. Officers inspected the car and found three assault rifles, high-capacity ammunition and a 5-gallon bucket containing “chemicals capable of forming an improvised explosive device,” police said.
A law enforcement source who spoke on condition of anonymity said the contents of the bucket included Tannerite, an ingredient that could be used to create pipe bombs.
The source, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the ongoing investigation, said authorities also found camouflage clothing in the car.
Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials said the suspect told police he was going to the Pride parade to look for a friend. Authorities were looking for that individual.
Really? Police chiefs make these kind of errors everyday – LMAO
Do police chiefs make these kind of errors everyday?
The real truth of the story was released to a former Los Angeles County prosecutor who works for Get Off the BS by two Santa Monica police officers that have been issued gag orders under threat of Federal prosecution for talking further talking about the incident.
According to two department sources, Howell called the Santa Monica police on Sunday morning claiming that he needed protection from the CIA. Howell further elaborated to the dispatcher stating that he “had been set up by the CIA – they are going to kill me.”
According to Howell, he was in LA to meet with another person in a collaborated attack on the gay communities in both Florida and Los Angeles.
Howell additionally stated that, “everything has gone south. Dan was gone when I got here. They killed the leader of the Florida attack this morning. They are going to kill me. I need protection.”
According to sources within the police department’s investigation Howell indicated to officers who first made contact with him that Howell claimed he was one of five people involved in a planned Sunday attack on both the east and west coasts.
Howell stated that he was suppose to “hook up” late Saturday night with his contact in LA who was suppose to have more weapons and chemicals to mix with the Tannerite he was in possession of.
“When I got here, Dan was gone. I went to his apartment and he had cleared out….I tried calling him but he never answered me,” said Howell.
When questioned about the other four people involved in the plot, Howell was only familiar with the first names of three of the alleged suspects, naming his contact in LA – Dan and two of the three contacts in Florida, Omar and Brandy
Speaking of the suspect killed in the Pulse Bar massacre in Florida, Howell stated, “Omar was not suppose to be killed. They lied to us – Omar and Brandy were suppose to get away.”
When Howell was questioned about how he and his conspirators knew each other, he said that,
“We were all familiar with each other through an online fundamental Islamic knowledge seminary course – we were recruited through the course and trained together at a camp in Virginia – we were taught how to shoot and make bombs – everyone knew their part – something went wrong….”
Before the officers could further question Howell, agents working for the Los Angeles office of the FBI quickly swept in and took over the case. Santa Monica detectives were never allowed to talk with Howell.
In summary, it appears that Howell was on his way to “hook up” with another conspirator (Dan) to set off explosives and shoot people at the gay pride parade in Hollywood California on Sunday.Nigera Televison meme
Finding his contact missing when he got to LA and having heard that Omar Matteen had been killed by a FBI SWAT teem in Orlando, Howell determined he had been double crossed by the CIA and feared for his own life.
Howell was taken in to custody by the FBI before Santa Monica police officers could further question him about the motives behind killing gay people on both coasts of the US on Sunday.
However, in absence of further information and or anyone who will officially go on the record, there is no doubt that the America public is not being told the truth about the Orlando Florida shooting and the arrest of Howell on Sunday.
It is a shame that the Fed’s got to the Santa Monica police chief on Sunday before she was silenced, however we are very thankful that at least two officers have risked their jobs and freedom to reveal what she would of most likely Tweeted had the Fed’s not got to her.
Would you like to make odds that it was just a “coincidence” as the mainstream media reports, that Howell armed to the teeth with assault rifles and explosives, was on his way to a gay pride parade the same day as the massacre in Florida?

FBI Tampa division Press Release June 20 link: fbi.gov/tampa/press-releases/2016/investigative-update-regarding-pulse-nightclub-shooting
ORLANDO—In order to provide an update on the progress of the investigation into the Pulse nightclub shooting, the FBI is releasing an excerpt from the timeline of events inside the Pulse nightclub during the early morning hours of Sunday, June 12, 2016. Out of respect for the victims of this horrific tragedy, law enforcement will not be releasing audio of the shooter’s 911 calls at this time, nor will law enforcement be releasing audio or transcripts of the calls made by victims at the Pulse nightclub during the incident. (See joint statement from DOJ.)
The following is based on Orlando Police Department (OPD) radio communication (times are approximate):
2:02 a.m.: OPD call transmitted multiple shots fired at Pulse nightclub.
2:04 a.m.: Additional OPD officers arrived on scene.
2:08 a.m.: Officers from various law enforcement agencies made entrance to Pulse and engaged the shooter.
2:18 a.m.: OPD SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) initiated a full call-out.
2:35 a.m.: Shooter contacted a 911 operator from inside Pulse. The call lasted approximately 50 seconds, the details of which are set out below:
Orlando Police Dispatcher (OD)
Omar Mateen (OM)
OD: Emergency 911, this is being recorded.
OM: In the name of God the Merciful, the beneficent [Arabic]
OM: Praise be to God, and prayers as well as peace be upon the prophet of God [Arabic]. I wanna let you know, I’m in Orlando and I did the shootings.
OD: What’s your name?
OM: My name is I pledge of allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi of the Islamic State.
OD: Ok, What’s your name?
OM: I pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi may God protect him [Arabic], on behalf of the Islamic State.
OD: Alright, where are you at?
OM: In Orlando.
OD: Where in Orlando?
[End of call.]
(Shortly thereafter, the shooter engaged in three conversations with OPD’s Crisis Negotiation Team.)
2:48 a.m.: First crisis negotiation call occurred lasting approximately nine minutes.
3:03 a.m.: Second crisis negotiation call occurred lasting approximately 16 minutes.
3:24 a.m.: Third crisis negotiation call occurred lasting approximately three minutes.
In these calls, the shooter, who identified himself as an Islamic soldier, told the crisis negotiator that he was the person who pledged his allegiance to [omitted], and told the negotiator to tell America to stop bombing Syria and Iraq and that is why he was “out here right now.” When the crisis negotiator asked the shooter what he had done, the shooter stated, “No, you already know what I did.” The shooter continued, stating, “There is some vehicle outside that has some bombs, just to let you know. You people are gonna get it, and I’m gonna ignite it if they try to do anything stupid.” Later in the call with the crisis negotiator, the shooter stated that he had a vest, and further described it as the kind they “used in France.” The shooter later stated, “In the next few days, you’re going to see more of this type of action going on.” The shooter hung up and multiple attempts to get in touch with him were unsuccessful.
4:21 a.m.: OPD pulled an air conditioning unit out of a Pulse dressing room window for victims to evacuate.
(While the FBI will not be releasing transcripts of OPD communication with victims, significant information obtained from those victims allowed OPD to gain knowledge of the situation inside Pulse.)
4:29 a.m.: As victims were being rescued, they told OPD the shooter said he was going to put four vests with bombs on victims within 15 minutes.
(An immediate search of the shooter’s vehicle on scene and inside Pulse ultimately revealed no vest or improvised explosive device.)
5:02 a.m.: OPD SWAT and OCSO Hazardous Device Team began to breach wall with explosive charge and armored vehicle to make entry.
5:14 a.m.: OPD radio communication stated that shots were fired.
5:15 a.m.: OPD radio communication stated that OPD engaged the suspect and the suspect was reported down.
Based on OPD radio communications, there were no reports of shots being fired inside Pulse between the initial exchange of gunfire between responding officers and shooter, and the time of the final breach. During this time, the shooter communicated with an OPD 911 operator and an OPD crisis negotiator, and OPD radio communications reported that victims were being rescued.

Joint Statement From Justice Department and FBI Regarding Transcript Related to the Orlando Terror Attack
The Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) issued the following statement regarding the FBI’s release of the transcript related to the Orlando shooting:
“The purpose of releasing the partial transcript of the shooter’s interaction with 911 operators was to provide transparency, while remaining sensitive to the interests of the surviving victims, their families, and the integrity of the ongoing investigation. We also did not want to provide the killer or terrorist organizations with a publicity platform for hateful propaganda. Unfortunately, the unreleased portions of the transcript that named the terrorist organizations and leaders have caused an unnecessary distraction from the hard work that the FBI and our law enforcement partners have been doing to investigate this heinous crime. As much of this information had been previously reported, we have re-issued the complete transcript to include these references in order to provide the highest level of transparency possible under the circumstances.”

State (FL) is the case of a law abiding concealed carry licensee who was arrested and prosecuted in Fort Pierce, FL for violating Florida nearly complete ban on Open Carry after his otherwise lawfully carried handgun unknowingly became unconcealed while walking down the street the first time he carried outside his home with his new Florida concealed carry license.

A St. Lucie County Judge denied all constitutional arguments to dismiss the case against Dale Norman. While the court made findings that the statute is overbroad and is facially vague, the court still issued a conviction on a “as applied” standard.
