    How about Google meddling?

    • On February 16, 2018, Eric Schmidt, long-serving CEO of Google, held a talk at the TUM Speakers Series on „OK, Google – What’s the future?

      Schmidt addresses how Google will filter "fake news"...discusses demographics and manipulation of the target demographics and elections. For instance:

      @ 27:07

      "....indeed the German government has criminalized the transfer that the transference of fake news and you have to actually remove it when you encounter it which we're indeed doing"

      &@ 29:30

      "we're also worried about some of the things that we've seen in misinformation a typical example you've had a little bit of this in Germany and in Europe although not as bad as the United States government's interfering in elections by manipulating the news manipulating source so it's a lot much longer conversation but we built tools which will allow you to look at conversations online and decide how much hate you want to have in your conversation oh I like lots of hate I hate hate I don't want anything I want it to be inflammatory I want it to be calm right so we're giving you the control right of how you want to have this expression be there we're not trying to censor it in any way but we want you to be able to prioritize it in whatever thing you care about this has resulted in a product which we call 'protect your election' which indeed has been used here in Germany and France and Netherlands and check in Korea and you can betcha it's gonna be used in our 2018 elections in America as well as elsewhere as it becomes more successful because we're committed to these kinds of issues "

    Didn't think I could be shocked by any criminal activity the Clintons could be linked to...then again...

    Additional details include the mention of yet another suspected death in 1981 peripherally related to the Clintons...this time, the untimely death of a teenage girl, Susie Deer, linked to the same coroner, Fahmy Malak and Bill's mother, Virginia Kelley:

    Dateline NBC and The Los Angeles Times have suggested a motive. They’ve documented Fahmy Malak’s role in clearing Bill Clinton’s mother, the late Virginia Kelley, of wrongdoing in the negligent death of a teenage girl at Ouachita Memorial Hospital in 1981. The Los Angeles Times reported that Dr. Malak’s ruling helped Clinton’s mother avoid scrutiny in the death of patient Susie Deer. The Times quoted the Polaski County coroner as saying there was a lot of speculation that “Malak’s ruling in favor of Clinton’s mother was a factor” in the governor’s decision to retain him as state medical examiner. Then-Governor Clinton said he resented any implications of a connection, and the governor’s office proceeded to shut down further investigation of the train deaths. Dr. Malak was eventually removed as state medical examiner, but was given a job as a $70,000 per year consultant to the Arkansas Department of Health.

    • 1999 WND: Did Clinton fix mom's wrongful-death case?

      Virginia Kelley, now deceased, was a nurse-anesthetist who worked at Ouachita Memorial Hospital in Hot Springs, Ark. in the late ’70s and early ’80s.

      In 1981, Kelley was named in a lawsuit over the death of Laura Lee Slayton, who died in 1978 while undergoing minor surgery at Ouachita.

      Kelley was the anesthetist during the surgery. The surgeon was also sued for failing to properly supervise Kelley. Eventually, Slayton’s family dropped the case against the surgeon, while Kelley settled out of court and paid the family $90,000 in damages.

      In June 1981, just two months after the Slayton lawsuit was filed, Kelley became embroiled in a second hospital death. This time it involved a 17-year-old mother. Susie Deer had been riding in the back of a car when someone in the car yelled a racial epithet at Billy Ray Washington, a black man, and his wife who were walking home. In retaliation, Washington picked up a chunk of concrete and threw it through the back window of the car, hitting Deer in the face.

      Deer was admitted to the hospital and underwent surgery to repair broken teeth and injuries to her face. Three hours into the operation, Virginia Kelley was asked by her surgeon to transfer an oxygen tube from Deer’s nose to her throat.

      According to Leveritt, after Kelley inserted the tube into her throat, vomit began coming up through the tube. The surgeons realized she had put the tube down into Deer’s stomach instead of her lungs. Kelley tried at least twice to correct her mistake, but couldn’t do it. Dr. James Griffin took over for her. By that time Deer had gone into cardiac arrest, and died an hour later.

  • Nikolas Cruz’s younger brother was Involuntarily Committed to a Psychiatric Facility

    Several reports on this shooter identify the fact that both he and his brother were adopted.

    • SunSentinel
      Adopted at birth by a loving older couple, Nikolas Cruz seemed to struggle in recent years.”...” Lynda and her husband, Roger, who died many years ago, adopted Nikolas and his biological brother, Zachary, after the couple moved from Long Island to Broward County.”...”Lynda, who died of pneumonia, adopted Nikolas the day he was born.” Family member Barbara Kumbatovich, of Long Island, N.Y., said she heard media reports about the mass shooting in Florida but had no idea the suspect was the son of her recently deceased sister-in-law, Lynda.

      ***

    • via BuzzFeed:
      "Bolstering the narrative that many glaring and alarming warning signs about Cruz's emotional state were repeatedly missed, the sheriff's reports shed light on consistent problems with two erratic, violent, and turbulent boys who repeatedly "threw items," were "out of control," "ran away from home," and fought and argued loudly with their mother and each other.

      Nikolas and Zachary both have mental health issues, including ADHD and OCD, and take medication, officers wrote. Nikolas Cruz had sought treatment at Henderson Mental Health Clinic and had attended a school for students with behavioral problems.

      On Aug. 22, 2012, Lynda Cruz called 911 because her sons, 12 and 13 at the time, were "threatening her." In November of that year, officers came because Nikolas had beat up his brother. A few weeks later they returned after he attacked his mother with the plastic hose from the vacuum cleaner, one report says.

      One evening in January 2013, officers responded to a call from Lynda Cruz, detailing that Nikolas's behavior was escalating after she took away his video games. The 14-year-old then threw a chair, dog bowl, and glass across the room, screaming that his mom was a "useless bitch," the sheriff's report said. After the teen barricaded himself in his room, deputies briefly handcuffed him and put him in the back of a squad car until a youth emergency services counselor arrived.

      Nearly a year later, Nikolas Cruz punched a hole in the wall after his mother took away his Xbox.'

    • FL Sun Sentinel:
      “Malcolm and Christine Roxburgh were neighbors of the Cruz family for many years. “It was a wonderful idea. Two older people to have two little boys to look after. They were just kind people.” Christine said Lynda asked her daughter, who lives up north, to take the kids when her husband died, but she refused.” .....

      “Christine said when the boy didn’t want to go to school, he would bang his head against a cement wall.”

    Considering the history ... big time fail:

    • Fox59: Deputies were called to home of Florida high school shooter 39 times since 2010, records show

      Police say an Uber car dropped off Nikolas Cruz at his former school around 2:19 p.m. on Wednesday.

      Within 10 minutes, authorities say he gunned down 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and left campus undetected in a crowd of students.

      Now, as the 19-year-old gunman begins his journey through the criminal justice system, a community is in mourning and investigators are looking for answers.

      ...

      Posts under videos on YouTube and other sites by someone using the name Nikolas Cruz include threatening comments, such as:

    • “I whana shoot people with my AR-15.”
    • “I wanna die Fighting killing s**t ton of people.”
    • “I am going to kill law enforcement one day they go after the good people.”

      ...

      A former neighbor said Cruz pointed a BB gun at homes and did target practice in the neighborhood. In video the former neighbor shared with CNN, Cruz is on a back patio, wearing only boxers and a red baseball cap, brandishing a pistol that appears to be a type of BB gun called an airsoft pistol.

      ...

      Cruz purchased the firearm used in the shooting, an AR-15 style rifle, legally in the state of Florida nearly a year ago, according Peter J. Forcelli, special agent in charge of the Miami field division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

      ...

      ‘Nobody saw this kind of aggression’ Cruz had been expelled from the high school over disciplinary problems, Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie said, without providing specifics. The school is closed for the rest of the week, as the district offers grief counseling to students and their families. Cruz was adopted. His adoptive mother, Lynda Cruz, died in November of pneumonia. Kathie Blaine, a cousin of Cruz’s adoptive mother, said his adoptive father passed away years ago.

      Broward Sheriff’s deputies were called to the Cruz family home 39 times since 2010, according to documents obtained by CNN. The sheriff’s office received a range of emergency calls that included: “mentally ill person,” “child/elderly abuse,” “domestic disturbance,” “missing person.” Details of those calls are not immediately available; most of them are marked “no written report,” so it’s impossible to know if they involved Nikolas Cruz.

      After Lynda Cruz’s death, the family of someone Cruz met at the high school let him stay in their home, said Jim Lewis, attorney for the host family.

      That family knew he had a gun, Lewis said. “They had it locked up, and believed that that was going to be sufficient, that there wasn’t going to be a problem.”

      Asked if the family had seen troubling signs, Lewis said they “saw some depression” over his adoptive mother’s death.

      “Obviously, he’d lost his mom. But they helped him get a job at a Dollar Tree store. They got him going to an adult education so he could try to get his GED and he seemed to be doing better,” Lewis said.

      The family was unaware of any mental illness beyond depression, Lewis said.

    The acquaintance covered the costs of her family attending the island wedding. She booked multiple rooms for herself and her spouse, two more rooms for her college age sons who each came with their girlfriends...as well paying for all related expenses - i.e. wedding gift, meals, local transportation etc.

    I never heard of such 'wedding packages' before. It's quite the deal - have your guests pay for your or your daughter's wedding by booking it in a Caribbean resort making this offer.

    An acquaintance of mine attended her nephew’s wedding held at a resort on one of the Caribbean islands. She covered the costs for four family members including the attire, airfare, room and meals for the weekend wedding which was held on the beach. Turns out, the bride and groom had a free wedding as a result of the resort’s offer of free nuptials with all the trimmings if the bride and groom manage to confirm a minimum of 20 booked rooms for their guests.
