LAX shooting, the storyline, the agenda, the questions

LAX shooter, the storyline, the agenda, the questions

by Jon Rappoport

November 1, 2013

Mainstream media sources are now reporting:

The shooter at LAX, who killed one TSA (?) employee and wounded several others today, is in custody. His name is Paul Anthony Ciancia. He is 23 years old. His weapon was a semi-automatic rifle.

Pete Williams (NBC, who, as chief Pentagon spokesman, covered up the extent of US military killings in the 1989 Panama invasion), states that Ciancia had “anti-government materials” in his bag.

Other sources state Ciancia had a note in his bag which stated that he wanted to “kill TSA.”

Ciancia is a Los Angeles resident. His family lives in Pennsville, New Jersey. This morning, prior to the shooting, Ciancia’s father called the local Pennsville police and reported his son was missing.

The father also stated that his son had written to a sibling “in reference to taking his own life.”

That’s the storyline so far.

Agenda? Another gun murder in a public place, so take away guns from everybody. Semi-auto rifle was used? Ban them. Gun plus anti-government opinion? Terrorist. Step up surveillance, ID, watch, harass, and even arrest people who own guns and don’t like the government.

The Matrix Revealed

And now for the questions. This is a checklist that should accompany every such mass shooting:

Was the accused shooter seeing a psychiatrist?

Had he ever seen a psychiatrist or MD who prescribed psychiatric drugs?

If so, what were the drugs?

Ritalin (or other speed-type compounds) for ADHD?

Antidepressants, in particular the SSRI types (e.g., Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft)?

Both classes of drugs are known to push people over into suicidal ideation, suicide, violence, murder. (See Peter Breggin, Toxic Psychiatry, Medication Madness, and other titles. Also see the website, SSRI stories.)

Had the accused shooter ever withdrawn from, stopped using any psychiatric drugs? Withdrawal, done incorrectly, can cause severe problems, including aggression and violence.

Had the accused shooter ever stated he was under surveillance, was being harassed by authorities, was being targeted with microwaves, was hearing voices?

Yes, there are people who incorrectly believe these things are happening to them; but there are also people who are, in fact, being subjected to such harassment and control.

Has the accused shooter ever been subjected to military indoctrination? Has he ever had connections to military or civilian intelligence employees or assets? If so, what were the specifics?

And finally, was the accused shooter actually the shooter, or was he a patsy, a scapegoat?

I’m not downplaying the difficulty of answering these questions. But I am saying they’re all relevant.

Whereas the job of major media, in these incidents, is relaying to the public the statements of law-enforcement personnel and politicians. That’s their only job. They don’t investigate. They don’t go off on their own. They don’t know what they pretend to know. Pretending is what earns them their paychecks.

    You are bang on target again.

    It isn’t the answers we get, it’s the fact the lapdog media don’t even ask the freaking questions. And worse, the narrative is such that the questions don’t arise.

    Extremely considerate of all these guys, from 9/11 to now just to take a representative example, to leave us George Washington* style notes so even the low info types at home can play along.

    1. fix dentures
    2. get wife
    3. lead revolutionary war

  2. Cortesz says:

    Thank-you Jon for getting on this so fast, I agree that this is a set up and likely a false flag or a cell activated to a terrible action, either way this “shooting” is to facilitate taking away the rest of our rights including gun rights. I do think that when Hillary is President things are going to get worse. Goldman Sachs already chose her per her lecture payments and as a gentlemen trader said many months ago, Goldman Sachs rules the world. Hillary is the end of the US, Bush and Obama just set the stage.

    • RJ Mann says:

      Well, Jon doesn’t claim what you seem to ‘agree’ to at all.
      He asked important and relevant questions.
      One must gather the information on ‘who’, ‘what’, ‘when’, and ‘where’ (including the evidence supporting the answers that may be given). Then you can discover any contradictions in the answers given and go from there. Then you can get to the ‘why’ of what was done & then ‘how to respond to it.
      It is possible that the shooter is a lone nut case acting completely on his own. It is possible that he is something else. We don’t have the information needed to determine that yet. And we sure better ask ‘why’ ? if this information is not forthcoming if it impacts our individual rights.
      IF he is a lone nut case, we must ask other questions. Do we allow the rights of millions of law abiding Americans to be violated because of the actions of one individual ? There have been cases of police killing numerous innocent citizens through the years. Should all police be disarmed ? Should all police be limited to riding on bicycles because some have killled and injured citizens by their vehicles ?
      Its not wise to jump to conclusions without having all the information or thinking through the consequences of proposed actions.

  3. RJ Mann says:

    I can think of a few other questions including:

    – What kind of background did the shooter have ?
    – What is the process of screening used to select TSA agents ?
    – How did such an individual get into that position ?
    – What kind of training did he receive and for how long ?
    – What behaviors did the shooter display before the shooting and for how long ? Who saw him do these behaviors ? (Or are they claiming that one day, out of the blue, a switch was flipped and he just went off the deep end ?)

    – How about providing All the evidence related to the case before any changes or proposals are made regarding any procedures related to ‘homeland security’ ? That includes his medical records, the actual alleged notes, reports by his co-workers & superiors, etc

  4. Appears to be yet another “false flag” programmed patsy to add more “evidence” to the lie that gun control will be some kind of benefit to our globalist society

    LAX LATEST: Details Emerge On Suspect, Threat Note

    November 1, 2013 10:20 pm ET |Posted In: News | Written by: Associated Press

    some snips…


    Union and TSA officials say the TSA officer shot at LAX was the first ever killed in the line of duty. J. David Cox Sr., national president of the American Federation of Government Employees, says the officer was one of the _behavioral detection officers_ stationed throughout the airport looking for suspicious behavior.


    A law enforcement official tells The Associated Press that 23-year-old suspect Paul Ciancia is from New Jersey and was wearing fatigues and carrying a bag containing a hand-written note that said he “wanted to kill TSA and pigs.” The official requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.


    Tim Kauffman, a spokesman for American Federation of Government Employees, which represents 45,000 TSA screeners, says the airport shooter was not a TSA officer.

    BAM , BAM, BAM

    Xavier Savant was waiting in the security line at the terminal where the shooting occurred and he and other passengers dropped to the floor in panic. He described it as a “bam, bam, bam” burst of gunfire.

    “We just hit the deck. Everybody in the line hit the floor and shots just continued,” he said.

    He said the shots subsided and people bolted through the metal detectors and ran into the terminal, eventually making their way out to the tarmac.

    “My whole thing was to get away from him,” said Savant, an advertising creative director in Hollywood who was heading to New York City with his family.


    Ben Rosen, 30, was sitting at the Starbucks in Terminal 3 eating oatmeal when he heard gunfire erupt and people start running in all directions and crouching on the floor.

    Police arrived with guns drawn and shouted “This is not a drill, hands up,” he said. Everyone raised their hands and were led out of the terminal.

    As they were led out they saw broken glass from a window that looked like it’d been shot out. Rosen left his bag behind.

    “It was scary. I’ve never experienced anything like this before,” he said. “I definitely felt underprepared. In retrospect, you have all these fire drills in school but you don’t really have gunman drills.”


    LAX Police Chief Patrick Gannon said actions of responding officers were heroic. “They did not hesitate, they went after this individual, they confronted this individual in our airport,” Gannon says.


    Gannon says the gunman entered the terminal, pulled an assault rifle from a bag and began shooting at a screening checkpoint before entering the secured area. Officers took him into custody after a shootout. “As you can imagine, a large amount of chaos took place in this entire incident,” he said.


    Interim Los Angeles Fire Chief Jim Featherstone says paramedics treated seven people at the scene, and six were taken to hospitals.


    Gannon says there was a lone shooter who approached a TSA agent who was checking passenger documents and opened fire.

  9. Vinnie Rossi says:

    Hi Jon,

    Thanks for writing about this.

    Add this to your list:

    – Was there a DRILL going on recently that was very similar to the alleged event?  

    As was the case with the Boston Bombing, Sandy Hook shooting, Batman shooting, London Subway bombing, and even 9/11 – there always seems to be a drill that happened recently, or happened on the day of the alleged event.

    And the answer is – YES

    What a strange coincidence – AGAIN!

    – Vinnie


    • Dennis says:

      “The rapid police response to today’s deadly shooting at a terminal in the Los Angeles Int’l Airport (LAX) was no accident, according to LAX Police Chief Patrick Gannon, because his officers prepared for an event IDENTICAL to the shooting weeks in advance.

      “We practiced to this not more than 3 weeks ago,” said Gannon at a press conference hours after the shooting. “We took every one of our patrol officers and a couple hundred officers from the Los Angeles Police Department and we practiced the exact scenario we played out today.””

    Will LAX Shooting Be Exploited to Arm TSA Agents?

    One TSA screener killed, media flip flops on gunman being off-duty TSA officer

    The incident is almost certain to be exploited by the federal government and the media to justify draconian TSA security policies, but it could also be used to rubber stamp a policy of arming TSA agents.

    As we reported earlier this year (, the Department of Homeland Security has been hiring shooting ranges near airports in order to train TSA agents, suggesting that a plan to equip the screeners with firearms has been on the agenda for a while.

    LAX shooting suspect made suicidal references to family

    The suspect grew up in Pennsville, N.J., […]


    Ciancia, a longtime township resident, did not attend Pennsville schools, according to media reports. He attended Salesianum School in Wilmington, Del.

    Two former classmates of Ciancia’s deemed the suspected shooter as a loner at the private high school, according to the Los Angeles Times.

    “In four years, I never heard a word out of his mouth,” said David Hamilton, who graduated with Ciancia from Salesianum School in 2008, and is now an editorial assistant at a publishing firm in Philadelphia. “He kept to himself and ate lunch alone a lot. I really don’t remember any one person who was close to him.”

    Another classmate, Jeff Skidmore, told the Los Angeles Times that Ciancia wore black on “dress down” days when they were not required to wear their uniforms.

    “He was definitely awkward,” Skidmore said. “He was always hanging his head and just shuffling along.”


    Investigators recovered a rambling message from the bag the shooter was allegedly carrying, which detailed an intent to kill TSA officers, two federal law enforcement officials said.

    The officials, who are not authorized to comment publicly but who was familiar with contents of the message, said it was written in way that the author expected that his own life to be taken in the incident.

    “This was clearly a suicide mission,” one of the officials said. “He did not expect to walk away from this.”

    The shooter, who was shot in the face, survived an exchange of gunfire with police. His condition was not immediately known, said the official.

    Note “lazy” droopy left eye lid of supposed “shooter” – CIAnCIA (even the name gives it away) see image above.

    Fritz Springmeier’s research indicates that droopy eye, or lazy eye, can be a mark of a sociopath. It is caused by trauma based mind control or in the person’s past, or some other trauma or torture a person may have been subjected to in the past. The trauma causes frontal lobe damage which in turn causes the eye and neural muscles to the eye to not work properly – the face will exhibit a lazy eye.

    Numerous well known people with unsavoury bio’s – see here, have this “marker”.

    LAX shooting gunman Paul Ciancia was targeting TSA

    Updated at 08:03 AM , 11/2/2013

    A law enforcement official said the gunman was dressed in fatigues and carried at least five full 30-round magazines of ammunition. In his bag he had a one-page, handwritten note that said he wanted to kill TSA employees and “pigs.”

    The official, who was not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity, said the note referred to how the gunman believed his constitutional rights were being violated by TSA searches and that he was a “pissed-off patriot” upset at former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

  29. theodorewesson says:

    It was not the first shooting at LAX. On July 4, 2002, a limousine driver opened fire at the airport’s El Al ticket counter, killing an airline employee and a person who was dropping off a friend at the terminal. Police killed the man.

    Come on, guys. EVERYTHING that happens now is a conspiracy. You’d think there were NO such things as lunatics. EVERYONE is a governement patsy. EVERY shooting spree or bombing or disaster is a “false flag” attack. It’s not that I think it’s impossible…but I can’t believe it’s the rule to the exception. The ODDS say that the vast majority of these events are just whack-jobs. Don’t you agree that Americans have PLENTY to be upset about? That’s not me condoning these nuts, but I am trying to underscore the fact that it just can’t be a false flag EVERY time. You gotta find another groove for the needle, you know?

    • RJ Mann says:

      Defiant – I agree with most of your point and wrote (above) that we need to get the facts before coming to conclusions about what took place and what should be done about it (if anything). To label everything a false flag event without evidence is illogical thinking and counter productive.
      Where I disagree with you is in your declarations such as “The ODDS say that the vast majority of these events are just whack-jobs.” Are there any actual studies out there that verify your statement ? Are there any actual studies with all the information needed to make any sound determination at all ? You might very well be correct, but we have to be careful about our statements.

      Additional questions that should be asked include : How can policy be made which can impact the lives and Liberty of millions of Americans be taken, without providing all the relevant evidence and information to them first ? How much personal liberty is to be sacrificed in the name of ‘security’ ? A country where everyone is forced to sit in a jail cell might seem ‘secure’, but is this the kind of America we want ?

    THE TRUTH= LAX “shooting” completely 100% staged, nobody died, “shooter” is not even a real person, actors used as eyewitnesses on the news, another major PSY-OP involving police and the controlled media, to bring about gun control, and cause major fear.

    Just like Sandy Hook.

    i not an expert. sincerely i ask, is that fake blood on the carpet? it doesn’t look right. but, i am not a paramedic nor special effects make up artist.

  36. Curits says:

    Just a lot of small localized attacks that will lead to the big show. The people who glue their mind to major news media are like fish drawn in by the chum and then comes the big one they are planning so well. The gun control issue is a ploy to keep us worried about losing our rights to bear arms. If that is what the masses are worried about, then look past the smoke and mirrors. They are up to something much bigger.

  37. theodorewesson says:

    Am I missing something? Ciancia is 23 years old. Yet no definitive reports / screen captures of his Facebook page? Really? He’s 23 and he has no FB page?

    Here are some cursory investigations,…

  38. theodorewesson says:

    Has the “chain of custody” of the alleged long rifle (AR-15?) — which was allegedly recovered at the crime scene — been released yet to the press?

    * stolen?

    * properly “registered” per California slave-control laws?

    * Hmmm, also… 150 bullets,… five 30-round clips (magazines)…. This ‘sheer’ quantity, will lead CA politicians (i would think) to introduce “NY SAFE Act -like ammo restriction” legislation (if not already on the books) — if it turns out Ciancia just walked into a Mom&Pop Gun Shoppe and purchased all those rounds at once. Or, did he purchase both long rifle and ammo at a Gun Show?

    * Most slave-control states, surely such as California and practically every other one, require FID cards / some form of licensing. Has this yet to be discussed in the press… namely, whether or not he was “lawfully allowed” to posses a long rife? When talking to the parents, has not one reporter asked the parents if they knew whether or not their son legally owned a gun?

    * As events unfold in the coming weeks, what will be worse for the 99.9999999999999999999999999999999999999% of gun-owning ethically & morally good, ‘law-abiding’ citizens who had nothing to do with the crime that took place that day: a ‘lawfully-owned’ long rifle in the hands of ciancia or a stolen one?

    * Will those, who own guns, and who had nothing to do with the crime that day, be extra-judicially punished by their legislatures and/or governor?

    * memo to self: don’t say the word “firearm”. that’s “statutory law” term created by the politicians.

    Very interesting article of the recent LAX shooting from Jon Rappoport.

  40. Robert St. Estephe says:

    That is not blood. Why: color (unless enhanced by camera or afterwards), thickness (like gelatin, rice pudding, yoghurt, lack of full saturation into carpet (should be flat and almost black-looking), weird grayish color at edges as that portion soaks in. The trouble with real blood is that it doesn’t photograph well: unless it is on a white background. In film, and staged photos, brighter color looks better, so fake blood is often much brighter than real scenes with blood.
