Over the weekend, it happened again – more mass shootings in America. This time, gunmen in separate attacks in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, killing 31 people and injured dozens more.

Already, the shootings have led to demands for action.

This has become an American routine: After every mass shooting, the debate over guns and gun violence starts up once again. Maybe some bills get introduced. Critics respond with concerns that the government is trying to take away their guns. The debate stalls. The reason is simple Guns are not the only contributor to violence.

Other factors include poverty, urbanization, and alcohol consumption. If you mix that with guns or any of other weapon of choice and you get violent shootings.

While many people want to point the finger at video games and mental illness — these ideas fail in the fact that most video game players are isolated and do not venture out to do harm –and the mentally ill are more likely to become victims than perpetrators.

But again bring this topic up and the debate stalls again.

So while politicians often lean on mass shootings to call for gun control, the problem goes far beyond those incidents. Mass shootings, after all, force Americans to confront the toll of our gun laws and gun culture.

Another problem is that mass shootings during an election run often bring out the ugly in most politicians as they exploit the deaths with an opportunity to attack the current administration.

The recent shootings not only have created the discussion about gun control it has also triggered talk about hate crime and attacks against people of color. The media has again ignored past domestic terrorism produced by groups like Antifa and have decided to spotlight domestic terrorism as something that is a white nationalist issue, rather than an issue of civil conflict that leads to what can be a civil war in America.

I pointed this out just before Independence Day that America is facing what is called Omnicide.

Omnicide happens in various stages within a country that is plagued with political division, race division, and economic division. If we are not killing ourselves, there are organized groups that are plotting to harm or kill other Americans for political reasons.

We are now facing civil upheaval based on racial divides and political divides – civil war is still hanging in the background and it does not have to fall into this but without the proper containment of overreaction from political pundits and those who hang on to identity politics this end is inevitable.

War is defined by the severity of violence and the body count. Technically, the experts say a civil war is defined as any armed conflict that involves; a military action internal to the parent state or state system members. It requires the active participation of the national government; there has to be an effective resistance by the warring parties, and there has to be a total of at least 1,000 battle-deaths during each year of the war. Now a civil conflict is defined in the same way except the death count has to be 25 deaths per year. We are already beating the average with three shootings within a week or even hours of each other. The death toll from the recent shooting spree is over 30 now and counting.

Can anyone see that there are factors here that breed despair and violence? Within these parameters anything can be used as a weapon – guns are exploited as the problem but any desperate person who feels alienated because of what they see is the breakdown of their environment will use all kinds of weapons. Guns are used because they are the most available and seem to create spectacle which blurs the data that indicates that the real killer is the environment that breeds sexual attacks, poverty, racism, despair, depression, and unhealthy lifestyles that seem to be constants in a death culture that is moving headlong into making communities the new battlefield.

Many chalk up the hyperbolic talk of civil war to the country’s hyper-partisan atmosphere and a cable news arms race in which commentators feel compelled to ramp up the rhetoric to be heard when everyone, including the president and Congress, seems to be shouting all the time. The talk has drawn particular derision from some military-veteran groups, whose members have experienced actual warfare.

But the rhetoric also has origins in some real-world problems, such as a crumbling of confidence in the country’s democratic institutions and its paralyzed federal government. With Congress largely deadlocked, governance on the most controversial issues has been left to the Supreme Court or has come through executive or emergency actions from President Trump.

However, it is not enough.

Each political side has ratcheted up the rhetoric over who is at fault for the problems of the country and quite frankly the identity politics and the pressures of living in world that we are told is going to end because of climate disasters or because inaction over climate or whatever these politicians can concoct and overeat to breed hate and anger in young people.

All you have to do is profile these alleged shooters to see that the battle lines are being drawn in both political and racial areas.

Ohio shooting suspect Connor Betts was a registered Democrat who posted pro-socialist content on a social media account along with repeated indications that he favored gun control, violence against “fascists” and white supremacists, and Satanism.

Betts described himself as a “leftist” on his Twitter profile and used hashtags on one selfie that included “selfie4satan” and “HailSatan.”

Betts shared videos from Some More News that were anti-Republican, including one from host Cody Johnston that claimed “the president wants to shoot migrants at the border.”

Betts also repeatedly indicated his support for gun control, writing in one missive, “This is America: Guns on every corner, guns in every house, no freedom but that to kill.” In another, he said he himself loved guns.

Betts described immigration detention centers as “concentration camps,” writing: “Cut the fences down. Slice ICE tires. Throw bolt cutters over the fences.”

The hyperbolic language, popularized by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, was also used recently by a 69-year-old Antifa member who attacked an immigration facility in Washington State before being shot dead.

Betts said he supported Sen. Elizabeth Warren and indicated support for Ocasio-Cortez, sharing an article about House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi, not supporting AOC and her cohorts and telling his followers to read it.

The alleged shooter also pushed violence against so-called “fascists.” In one case, he replied to a Buzzfeed story and wrote: “Kill every fascist.” He shared an article from the New Republic about an alleged “global fascist movement” and shared posts doxxing people who users said attended a pro-Ku Klux Klan rally in Dayton, writing, “Know your enemies.”

In one post, Betts wrote, “I want socialism, and I’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding.”

Meanwhile, the Texas shooter was the antithesis of the Ohio shooter.

Patrick Cruius, the man who allegedly carried out the El Paso, Texas, mass shooting over the weekend left behind a manifesto that police confirmed he likely wrote. It said the attack was carried out as “a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas.”

Crusius wrote, “They are the instigators, not me. I am simply defending my country from cultural and ethnic replacement brought on by an invasion.

Furthermore he wrote:

“Some people will think this statement is hypocritical because of the nearly complete ethnic and cultural destruction brought to the Native Americans by our European ancestors, but this just reinforces my point. The natives didn’t take the invasion of Europeans seriously, and now what’s left is just a shadow of what was.”

Crusius expressed dismay with both Democrats and Republicans and said lawmakers “have been failing us for decades.”

“They are either complacent or involved in one of the biggest betrayals of the American public in our history. The takeover of the United States government by unchecked corporations,” he added, predicting a future one-party state.

“The Democrat party will own America and they know it. They have already begun the transition by pandering heavily to the Hispanic voting bloc in the 1st Democratic Debate. They intend to use open borders, free healthcare for illegals, citizenship and more to enact a political coup by importing and then legalizing millions of new voters. With policies like these, the Hispanic support for Democrats will likely become nearly unanimous in the future. The heavy Hispanic population in Texas will make us a Democrat stronghold,” Crusius alleged.

He said that new migrants work hard but claimed that their children do not and blamed Republican lawmakers for increasing the number of foreign workers allowed in the country, saying it undermined Americans’ ability to find good jobs.

He later said that he carried out the shooting because the country was going a different direction than he’d imagined due to mass migration.

“Inaction is a choice I can no longer beat the shame of inaction knowing that our founding fathers have endowed me with the rights needed to save our country from the brink of destruction,” he wrote.

While some have tried blaming President Donald Trump for the Texas shooting, Crusius said the president had nothing to do with it.

“My ideology has not changed for several years. My opinions on automation, immigration, and the rest predate Trump and his campaign for president. I put ting [sic] this here because some people will blame the President or certain presidential candidates for the attack. This is not the case,” he wrote.

“I know that the media will probably call me a white supremacist anyway and blame Trump’s rhetoric. The media is infamous for fake news. Their reaction to this attack will likely just confirm that.”

Another element to these particular shootings that will most certainly be ignored by the mass media is how ritual spectacle shootings such as these happen in patterns that certainly are activated by darker powers that tend to mock the victims and force us to confront what can be called pure evil.

When I first heard of the shootings happening in El Paso – I was floored by the fact that it happened at the Cielo Vista Mall. I could not help but think about the Manson murders and how they took place at 10050 Cielo Drive—50 years ago this very week.

I wondered about the possibility of a 50-year killing cycle and whether or not there is some strange echo in transit.

The Tate murders occurred on August 8 and 9, 1969 –it was a killing spree that transitioned from one night to the next. The El Paso shootings at Cielo Vista happened Saturday August 3rd, at around 10 AM – then the Ohio shooting took place around 1:00 am on August 4th – another pattern of death ritual that took place between days and hours.

In both the Manson case and the El Paso and Ohio cases, race and politics were cited as the motivators behind them.

Numbers are also weird when you figure that Charles Manson was born November 12, 1934. November is the 11th month –11 +12 is 23.

Manson: 1969 breaks down to 25 which is 7. 7+8 = 15 + 8 = 23

El Paso: 2019 = 21+ 3 = 24 + 8 = 32

In the Bible, Numbers Chapter 32:23 reads “But if you fail to do this, you will be sinning against the LORD; and you may be sure that your sin will find you out.”

23 is the number of Chaos – the Illuminatus number and I Ching number to break apart and start over.

10050 Cielo Drive is the address where the Tate murders were carried out and it is also the name of the mall next to the Wal-Mart where the shooting occurred in Texas. The Tate murders occurred on August 8 and 9, 1969, and the Texas shooting took place on August 3, almost 50 years to the date. 50 is part of the address, but more importantly the 100 is significant. The shooter in Ohio, Connor Betts, carried two clips with 100 rounds total, or two clips with 50 rounds each.

This again plays into the law of 5’s meaning chaos within the number 5 (2+3 =5) 5-50-500 -5000 etc.

Coincidentally, initial reports from the Vegas shooting at Mandalay Bay were that 50 people killed and 500 injured.

That has changed over time but patterns do not – both numerically and astrologically.

Manson had stated that Helter Skelter (the race war) was coming down. He claimed that people of color would attack the “Pigs” or the elite and that this would cause a race war.

Manifestos from the killers today and the preemptive discussions of Manson and others in the 1960s compel us to consider the possibility of social tinkering and the possibility of retro causality with regard to the implementation of a race war or a revolution that was part of some programmed false flag operation to create mass hysteria in the future.

The social engineers of the past and those of the present have been seeing their progress come to fruition and an unassuming public is playing right along with their game of division in order to create a racial and political civil war.

The phantom of white supremacy was also attached to Manson in the 1960s and after his death.

According to occult researcher Ryan Gable, after Manson’s death, the US-based AtomWaffen Division group (AWD), a small neo-Nazi group whose members are preparing for a race war to combat what they consider the cultural and racial displacement of the white race, called Manson “a great revolutionary”, a “warrior of truth”, and “a hero”. This fascist revolution was to be brought about through the Universal Order Movement, set up in the 1980s by “National Socialist revolutionary” James Mason, who had claimed to be acting on the suggestions of the Manson himself, who he called a prophet.

Of course, Manson famously had etched a swastika into his forehead. Mason wrote in 1984 about Manson: “The day will never come when this man will cease to be The Leader as long as he is alive. He is aware of all this himself and is in total humility about it, just as was Hitler … He is Charles Manson.” In newsletter posts later collected together in his 1992 book, Siege, Manson called the Universal Order “everything National Socialism is and much, much more, geared to the present conditions, as dynamic as – maybe more so than – National Socialism because its true leader [Manson] is alive, a contemporary of all of us.”

It is obvious that the anger and frustration that are seething under the surface in this country have reached a boiling point. Instead of coming together, we are seemingly more divided than ever. Americans have been trained to hate one another, fear one another and blame one another.

These attitudes were the same attitudes that in the 1960s were supposed to trigger a possible rising up of what Manson called “spades” or black people rising up against white elites.

Most of the Helter Skelter theory was borrowed from Krishna Venta who led a cult less than 2 miles from Spahn Ranch called “the Fountain of the World.”

Venta’s vision was of battle of Armageddon which entailed the blacks battling the whites. Venta’s objective was to assemble 144,000 followers to hide in a hole in a secret valley. At the end of the war, he and his family would emerge, victorious. His vision was that the blacks would win and have to hand over power to the Russians, who Venta theorized was they were the true Master race and that they would be a powerful and armed enemy of the country during the race wars of the United States.

Venta’s vison was said to coincide with something called the finger of fate or the finger of God. The finger of fate or the finger of God is also called a Yod which takes place after Mercury comes out of retrograde and coincides with astrological events.

It is a Yod in Mercury retro shade – the moment where God or some other darker force is in control.

The Black Moon was first observed a few days ago and a partial solar eclipse will be achieved on August 11th which forms the point of a Yod from Neptune and Pluto.

It is also an interesting coincidence that Madonna released a video called “God Control.”

The music video seems to be a bit of predictive programming as it shows an alley way with a partial moon in the sky. Then you see a violent scene of bloodletting in a night club as a shooter opens fire on the dancing crowd. There is even a news clip playing in the video saying that the body count is 30 dead maybe more – like the 30 dead maybe more in the attacks in both El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.

The video is disturbing considering it predates the Black Moon, the shootings and the approaching Yod that influences God control.

During the dates of the Manson murders, there was also a Yod that took place.

The Yod can indicate powerful mystical forces at work. These forces can trigger those with difficult personalities and the events of eclipses indicate a dark night of the soul or the darkening of the sun.

After the Manson prophecy appeared as a failure and after his attempts at creating Helter Skelter appeared to be a deadly fantasy. The Zodiac Killer appeared on the scene and then came the Zebra Killings between 1972 and 1974 and left 71 people dead. The name would take on a more sinister meaning as it became apparent that a group of black gangs were systematically stalking and killing whites simply because of the color of their skin.

The majority of the attacks were carried out by five members of a group within Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam called the “Death Angels.” Jesse Lee Cooks, J.C. Simon, Larry Green, Manuel Moore and Anthony Harris.

Manson had this insane notion to start a race war in the US. His failure was only that he failed to embrace the willing propagandists for such a venture, our media.

The media, of course, has a tendency to glorify these types of events and is now using them to illustrate the sides to be taken in this politically charged race war.

As the old song by Don McLean says it is again Helter Skelter in the summer swelter as the dog days spin us in a direction that was once the vision of mad man 50 years ago.
