FACT OR FICTION: HOLMES FATHER TO TESTIFY ON LIBOR; JAMES HOLMES PHOTOS DON’T MATCH
by Jon Rappoport

Two issues in the Aurora shootings are red hot at the moment, and are being presented and discussed all over the Internet.
The first is the claim that Robert Holmes, James Holmes’ father, was or is to testify before a senate panel on the Libor scandal.
In looking, I was able to trace the story back as far as Christopher King, who has several blogs. Using the email address and phone number on one of the blogs, I tried to contact Mr. King. My email was kicked back to me as undeliverable, and the phone number was disconnected.
Mr. King may have the goods on this story. I don’t know. But I see no evidence that Robert Holmes was or is to testify. I see assertions. I see no evidence.
If that changes, I will report on it.
I understand that many people view Robert Holmes’ testimony as a major factor that ties the Aurora shootings to a deeper motive. The shootings could have forced Holmes, the father, into seclusion and driven him away from testifying and exposing major banking criminals. Yes.
But at this time, I find no evidence that he was or is to testify. The claim is lacking verification of any kind.
Let’s move on to the photos of James Holmes.
It’s been asserted that various photos, laid side by side, reveal that the man who was arrested and is in custody couldn’t be James Holmes. Therefore, the man who is in custody is a stand-in, possibly a patsy set up to take the fall. Or he could be the real shooter, but he isn’t Holmes.
Below is a “photo array.”
ONE: The first photo is actually the video Holmes made when he was 18, six years ago.
TWO: If you compare it to the video of Holmes in court after his arrest, you’ll see that the facial structure in both images is consistent. They could very well be the same person.
THREE The third photo is the one that was released soon after the shootings. It was passed to the press by the University of Colorado. This is the “round-faced” Holmes with the “thicker nose.” Well aware that the camera and the conditions can play all sorts of tricks, I can nevertheless see how that photo doesn’t look like any of the other Holmes’ photos. I can see that, if any photo is “the odd man out,” that one is.
But still, the video of Holmes at 18 and the video of Holmes in court are consistent. Therefore, I find good reason to assume that the man under arrest is Holmes.
FOUR: The fourth and last photo of Holmes is from the sex site. I discount it altogether because it’s obvious the closeness of Holmes to the camera is creating a bending distortion of features.
Here are the links to the photos. Have a look for yourself:

Speculation and scenario-building during an investigation are valuable. They push you along and they give at least temporary meaning to facts.
In the Holmes case, we have already seen facts that significantly contradict the official narrative. We’re in mid-stream right now.
But when ANY speculation or hypothesis, from any source, assumes facts that can be shown to be unreliable, missing, or false, the hypothesis has to back up and regroup.
To the degree that a scenario depends on a) Robert Holmes testifying before the senate or b) the man in custody not being James Holmes, a regroup is necessary.
In prior articles, I’ve been tracking along three lines: Holmes is an MK-ULTRA assassin; Holmes is a patsy who didn’t kill anybody; Holmes is a psychiatric casualty who was driven to kill by the well-known effects of meds he was prescribed. Those are still on my radar and I’ll continue following them. If another possibility emerges, I’ll follow that one, too.
