Something Rotten in Uvalde, Texas

by Stephen Lendman

Questions demand answers.

How did 18-year-old Salvador Ramos open fire unobstructed for 12 minutes outside the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, TX before going inside?

Armed with an AR-15 semi-automatic assault rifle and multiple magazines — attired in body armor — how was he able to avoid being stopped by police outside and inside the school?

How was he able to go from classroom to classroom, killing 19 children and two teachers, wounding others, while police inside and outside the school did nothing to stop him? 

According to a mother with two children in Rob Elementary's second and third grade:

Police did "nothing" to stop Ramos.

"They were just standing outside…They weren't going in there or running anywhere."

Why didn't they intervene right away?

Why did an hour pass before a border patrol tactical unit arrived on the scene, entered a classroom and killed Ramos?

Why didn't it try to disarm and arrest him?

Why didn't the unit and/or local police try to learn what motivated him?

Dead men and teenagers tell no tales.

Texas Department of Public Safety regional director, Victor Escalon, failed to explain why Ramos wasn't stopped before entering Robb Elementary.

According to a local resident outside the school, parents of children inside shouted to police on the scene:

"Go in there! Go in there!"

Instead of intervening straightaway, police outside the school stopped frantic parents from going in to protect their children.

One parent was quoted, saying:

"Let's just rush in because the cops aren't doing anything like they are supposed to."

So far this year, around one school shooting a week occurred, about 200 mass shootings nationwide.

US civilian gun ownership is the highest worldwide.

In Chicago where I live, gun-related deaths exceed two a day.

In 2021, more homicides occurred in the city than elsewhere nationwide — a total of 797.

Widespread gun ownership lowers the threshold between anger and homicide.

According to the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence:

"On average, at least 200 Americans are non-fatally injured with a firearm each day" — around 100 Americans killed daily from guns.

The US has by far the highest homicide rate among developed nations.

Around 100,000 Americans are killed or injured by gun violence annually.

The US notoriously glorifies perpetual war-making and violence in the name of peace it abhors.

Violent films and video games are among the most popular. Domestic violence is rampant.

It's unsurprising in a nation that considers pacifist nonviolence as sissy and/or unpatriotic. 

Consider the galling hypocrisy.

In response to mass shootings in Uvalde, TX, the fake Biden hyperventilated:

"When in God's name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby (sic)?"

At the same time, the regime he nominally heads and Congress poured billions of dollars worth of weapons and munitions into Nazified Ukraine to wage proxy war on Russia.

With all categories included — including open-checkbook black budgets hidden from public view — the US spends as much on militarism and war-making as the rest of the developed world combined.

The Pentagon's global empire of bases are platforms for perpetual war-making — at a time when hegemon USA's only enemies are invented.

No real ones existed throughout the post-WW II period — not Russia, China, Iran or any others.

And consider the following:

Mass-slaughter in Buffalo, NY on May 14 was the latest in a conveniently timed series of made-in-the-USA false flags ahead of November midterm elections.

With Republicans highly likely to regain House and Senate control because of soaring inflation, economic weakness, and significant opposition to Biden regime policies overall, undemocratic Dems want the subject changed.

Was what happened in Uvalde on May 24 as reported or the latest in a series of state-sponsored false flags?

The jury is very much out on this issue.

If more Uvalde-type incidents and/or other suspicious events occur ahead of November midterms, Dems' dirty hands may be behind an effort to divert public attention from soaring inflation, economic weakness, growing food insecurity, rising unemployment sure to follow, and along with all of the above: a Misery Index heading higher.

With attribution to Gilbert and Sullivan:

"Things are seldom what they seem."

"Skim milk masquerades as cream."

Take nothing from the empire of lies and its MSM press agents at face value.

Chances are highly likely that reality is worlds apart from what they claim.
