After Orlando Shooting, Chick-fil-A Made This Heartfelt Gesture 3:00PM EDT 6/14/2016 Jessilyn Justice charismanews.com
“…Chick-fil-A—known for the strong religious values of its founders—is normally closed on Sunday and has in the past supported traditional marriage. But after the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, a group of Chick-fil-A employees showed up to work on Sunday, June 12, to cook sandwiches and hand out drinks, free of charge, for the people in line to donate blood. ..
Area resident Luke Herzog spread the word on Twitter: “Chick-fil-a opened up their restaurants in Orlando to serve people waiting in line to give blood … pretty cool.”
Attorney Kevin Hayslett wrote on Facebook: “While the founders definitely don’t approve of that choice of lifestyle, they believe in compassion. Who knew? A bunch of people claiming to be Christians care about others even when they don’t agree with them. This group took time out of their schedules to volunteer to help those who were also trying to do their part. On top of that, the franchise’s location on Wells Road in Orange Park is even offering coupons for a free frosted lemonade to anyone who donates blood when the One Blood mobile unit is at their store on June 14th.”..”
17 Facts About The Orlando Shooter That Every American Should Know
by Tyler Durden – Jun 14, 2016 1:25 AM .zerohedge.com
“#1 According to the Director of the FBI, Mateen had “links to al-Qaida, Hezbollah, and the Islamic State“.
#2 Mateen’s father has openly expressed support for the Taliban on YouTube.
#3 Despite those links to terror organizations, Mateen was allowed to work “as a security guard at a local courthouse“.
#4 Mateen wasn’t directly hired by the courthouse. Instead, he was officially an employee of the largest security services company in the world…
The Orlando nightclub terrorist who pledged allegiance to ISIS worked almost a decade for a major Department of Homeland Security contractor, raising alarms that ISIS sympathizers and agents have infiltrated the federal agency set up after 9/11 to combat terrorists.
Officials say Omar Mir Seddique Mateen, an Afghan-American who held two firearms licenses and a security officer license, was employed by the security firm G4S Secure Solutions USA Inc. since Sept. 10, 2007. The Jupiter, Fla.-based company merged with the Wackenhut Corp. after 9/11 and assumed federal contracts.
#5 It turns out that this U.S. subsidiary of G4S is a company that works very closely with “the Department of Homeland Security, the US Army, and federal and local law enforcement.”
#6 Mateen’s ex-wife says that he would repeatedly beat her while they were married.
#7 He started to become radicalized after separating from his first wife. While they were together, she said that he didn’t show much interest in religion.
#8 He made pilgrimages to Saudi Arabia in 2011 and 2012.
#9 He claimed to personally know the Boston Marathon Bombers.
#10 According to the FBI, Mateen has “been on the radar before“, he was interviewed by them three separate times, and they conducted a 10 month investigation of his activities in 2013.
#11 He is being described as “unhinged and unstable” by his former coworkers.
#12 Mateen once declared that he hoped to martyr himself someday, and the FBI knew all about this.
#13 Despite everything that the federal government knew about Mateen, he was still permitted to legally buy guns just last week.
#14 In an odd twist, it also turns out that Mateen was a registered Democrat.
#15 A respected Islamic scholar was urging Muslims in Orlando to “get rid” of homosexuals just a couple of months before this shooting took place…
Farrokh Sekaleshfar – a British-born doctor and Muslim scholar – has gained a following by urging Muslims to ‘get rid of’ homosexuals.
And in April, he took his speech titled ‘How to deal with the phenomenon of homosexuality’ to the Husseini Islamic Center in Sanford, just outside Orlando, Florida.
Two months later, 29-year-old Omar Mateen carried out the worst massacre in US history by opening fire on a gay club in the same city.
#16 Hillary Clinton’s State Department shut down an investigation of the mosque that Mateen attends because it “unfairly singled out Muslims“.
#17 Just moments before the attack, Mateen reportedly called 911 to swear his allegiance to ISIS…”
Orlando shooting, false flag event aimed at demonizing Muslims: Expert Mon Jun 13, 2016 2:40PM presstv.us
“… We spent the week mourning the death of Muhammad Ali, a great Muslim fighter for justice and a defender of the Palestinians. Additionally, this week we just learned from The Washington Post that Obama was planning to push through the United Nations a Security Council resolution that would essentially recognize the state of Palestine and establish the state of Palestine on the pre-1967 boundaries.
This is a very, very dangerous situation for people like Netanyahu and his party, the people who have been behind virtually all of the spectacular so-called Islamic terror attacks blamed on Muslims from September 11th through London, Madrid, Bali and more recently the two Paris attacks of 2015 and San Bernardino. We know all of those events were false flag events arranged by professionals and intelligence agencies and falsely blamed on Muslims. We have no reason to believe the official story of this event. We should assume that this is a false flag event carried out by the supporters of Netanyahu and the neoconservatives who have whipped up the clash of civilizations out of whole cloth through false flag terror events like this in order to pursue their geopolitical agenda…”
Orlando Shooting Hoax Decoded , from youtube.com
“..Published on Jun 12, 2016
Let’s unpack and decode the press coverage of the Orlando gay club shooting hoax. It’s loaded and coded, folks.
If you think two hijacked planes can fly unabated over USA airspace for well over an hour then powderize three skyscrapers while two others disappear into thin air you might also believe evil Muslim sharpshooters with anagram names bring long rifles into gay bars. You’ll also likely think Donald Trump isn’t an actor but a real political candidate and they actually count your vote. That’s the problem with you coincidence theorists; you’re a dangerous bewildered frightened herd of cattle ready to tear each other apart while submitting to incrementally more Orwellian control systems with increasingly limited freedoms amidst a collapsing dollar while illusory diversity only creates an increasingly homogenous and distorted society of confused, scared, and divided mouth breathing screen gazing troglodytes who attack and slander the most insightful and intelligent amongst us still capable of independent thought. You sold out with your fellow citizens and you’re now a part of the problem. You’re the dangerous ones- the scared bewilder herd. Walter Lippmann was right- you’re voluntary slaves who can’t handle the truth, and you deserve what’s coming to you…”
