Curious questions that the mainstream news media haven't asked about the Colorado shooting.

Raise a few concerns about the spread of radical Islam and you get labeled as an Islamophobe. Ask more questions about the hate-filled book called the Koran and you get labeled as a bigot. Don't bother to look at the facts, nobody is interested in being bored with the details. That is the successful logic being applied by the moronic leftists to keep people ignorant. That is also the reason why journalists in America have lost their sense of curiosity. Take the shooting in Aurora, Colorado for example. No one in the news media is looking at the known facts and asking about the specifics - like where did the money come from to purchase all that extensive weaponry, ammunition, bomb-making material, tactical gear that included bullet-proof vests, and the training to put it all together. James Holmes, the Aurora, Colorado shooter who reportedly opened fire killing 12 people and wounding 58 more, apparently was an unemployed medical student at the University of Colorado, pursuing a PhD in neuroscience, reports ABC News.
Well, actually, someone did start asking those questions but he wasn't part of the mainstream news media, he was another blogger. His name is Mike Adams and he writes on the web site under the byline, The Health Ranger. Here are a few questions he has raised.
Quoting from the web site
There is already conjecture that James Holmes may have been involved in mind-altering neuroscience research and ended up becoming involved at a depth he never anticipated. His actions clearly show a strange detachment from reality, indicating he was not in his right mind. That can only typically be accomplished through drugs, hypnosis or trauma (and sometimes all three).
 Quoting from the New York City CBS News web site
"He said pictures from inside the apartment are fairly disturbing and the devices look to be sophisticated, adding the booby-traps were 'something I've never seen.' One rifle, two handguns, a knife, a bullet proof vest, a ballistic helmet, a gas device, a gas mask, military SWAT clothing and unidentified explosives were also found in Holmes' car, a law enforcement source told CBS News. Oates said Holmes wore a gas mask, a ballistic helmet and vest as well as leg, groin and throat protectors during the shooting."
In Mike Adams' own words: "In other words, this guy was equipped with exotic gear by someone with connections to military equipment. SWAT clothing, explosives, complex booby-traps... c'mon, this isn't a "lone gunman." This is somebody who was selected for a mission, given equipment to carry it out, then somehow brainwashed into getting it done." Now why can't some of our well-paid journalists ask the same thing?
"Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said Holmes' apartment is booby-trapped with a 'sophisticated' maze of flammable devices. It could take hours or days for authorities to disarm it," reports Yahoo News (
Quoting from a Denver, Colorado CBS News web site
AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – Officials say they have removed all major threats at the booby-trapped apartment of the Aurora movie theater shooting suspect on Saturday.
Aurora authorities obtained still pictures and video of the inside of the suspect’s apartment at 1690 Paris Street. They have used a robot to go inside James Holmes’ apartment.
Cassidee Carlson with Aurora police said Saturday morning crews were successful disabling the first threat in the apartment. They were able to disable a trip wire that was set to go off when the apartment door was opened.
“This is some serious stuff that our team is dealing with,” Carlson said.
Shortly before noon crews were successful performing a controlled detonation. It blew out what remained of a window and frame of the apartment. More controlled detonations were possible.
According to a source familiar with the case, there were multiple “trip” wires throughout the apartment. Investigators have also seen what appear to be mortars planted in the apartment — sort of the kind of mortars that might be seen in a commercial fireworks show. Up to a half dozen of them are scattered around.
Additionally, they have seen a number of inflated balloons in the apartment, like party balloons — some on the ground, some suspended in the air with many appearing to be filled with a powder. The balloons — at least five or six of them — appear to be linked together.
Also linked together are bottles of liquid. Officials say there is a strong smell of gasoline emanating from the apartment. Authorities have also spotted several boxes on top of the refrigerator and there are lights flashing on the boxes.
Investigators believe there are some 30 aerial shells (fireworks) commercially legally available for purchase. They are the size of softballs, black in color, and made of mostly rubber and investigators suspect the suspect may have filled them with smokeless powder. Depending on how he packaged it and how adept he was they could detonate or just burn.
Officials believe entering the apartment would have caused a trip wire to trigger one liquid container to pour/mix with another. When the two mix together, they set off the main charge of the device which may be additional flammable liquids. That causes the explosion and rapid spread of fire.
But the two best questions Mike Adams has raised are these: "How does an unemployed medical student afford $20,000 in weapons gear?" and "Where does an unemployed, introverted medical school student get the training to deploy sophisticated booby traps, tactical body armor, weapons systems and more? Certainly not in graduate school!" As a shooting enthusiast myself I know how expensive it is to buy ammunition. And most tactical gear is only sold to police departments. 
Going back to the news on the Internet, Mr. Adams quotes from the British news web site, Daily Mail  
An article posted on Sunday by the Daily Mail reveals Holmes had a "'mind-boggling' stash of ammunition" and "three types of explosives were found - jars filled with accelerates, chemicals that would explode when mixed together and more than 30 improvised grenades." This further adds to the financial cost tally of what it took to put all this together. 
And another quote from The Wall Street Journal web site
The Wall Street Journal is also now reporting: "the suspect bought four guns over the past 60 days, and over the Internet bought 3,000 rounds for an assault rifle, 3,000 rounds for Glock handguns and about 300 shotgun rounds. The suspect also had a 100-round drum-style magazine for the assault rifle that would have allowed him to fire 50 to 60 rounds a minute."
Then he adds up the cost of this arsenal: 
 " Note: Some readers have questioned the $20,000 figure estimated here, saying this gear could have been acquired for only $10,000 or so. I doubt that, as all the extras that you need to effectively run these guns cost a lot of money: training courses, spare magazines, etc. Just a decent AR-15 battle sight (a holographic red dot sight) can run $1,000 - $2,000. Search "ACOG" if you don't believe me. It is also reported that Holmes bought 6,000 rounds of ammo, which definitely isn't cheap either, especially given that we now know half of those rounds were rifle rounds. It's clear this guy was spending big bucks. Whether it's $10k or $20k isn't really that much of a point."
And guess what? Immediately after the shooting, leading Democrat politicians have begun talking about gun control as a necessary means to bring an end to things like this. How convenient. And just on the eve of the United Nation's Small Arms Treaty conference. The same treaty being endorsed by left-wing Democrats Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama. So on the one hand we have the U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, a Democrat appointed by Barack Hussein Obama, arranging the sale of guns to Mexico drug cartels which then get used to kill Brian Terry, a Border Patrol agent all for the purpose of convincing the public that we need more gun control. Then we have unemployed medical students suddenly purchasing tens of thousands of dollars worth of police tactical gear and a huge arsenal of weapons bombs and ammunition and technical training to build sophisticated bombs and booby traps and once again the Democrats begin mouthing off about how badly we need gun control. The only thing the Democrats need gun registration for is to come by later and confiscate them. Then, when they have disarmed the public they can institute their full blown totalitarian takeover of America.

I think people ought to begin asking the same questions as Mike Adams. I want to ask one more. What kind of mind-altering drugs does it take to change an ordinary person into a homicidal maniac? Possibly the LSD I wrote about yesterday?

My name is Nelson Abdullah and I am Oldironsides. And I want to tip my hat to Mike Adams.
