Muslims at Loves – True or False?
Outpost of Freedom
October 13, 2015
Many “incidents” are reported to the patriot community and there is a reaction that distracts from other activities, requires endless hours in effort to attempt to track back to a reliable source, and, most often, are found to be unfounded.
We accuse the press of always lying to us, unless, of course, they say something that we want to believe. Or, often, it is the pictures they use to support a story of an event. This leads to a lot of speculation over whether “crisis actors” are portrayed in events, such as Sandy Hook” and other mass shootings. Many people will spend hours search pictures form events, and will find similar looking people at various events. These are alleged to prove that the event was a “false flag” event, orchestrated by the government.
Think about this. We discredit the written word of MSM, yet we want to rely on the reliability of photos used in conjunction with a story. It’s as if we have never accepted the importance of videos or photos to bring attention to a story, and quite often, file photos/videos are used to enhance the story and bring attention to it. The proponents of “false flag” assume that all of the photos shown are actually of the event, though during Sandy Hook, the press used videos of a previous “active shooter training event”, then they were used by the patriot community to prove that it was a false flag event.
In a recent near viral story, it was alleged that buses carrying Muslims were spotted at a Loves trick stop at Interstate 35 and Highway 9, near Norman, Oklahoma. Photographs showing a number of white buses travelling away from the camera, suggesting that these were the buses that were supposed to have been seen at Loves, supported this.
The problem is, that same photograph of the buses (above) was used last July 2015, alleging they were proof of military activity during Jade Helm 15. However, we can go back even further and find that that picture was used as early as April, before we knew about Jade Helm 15, claiming that it was military buses moving military personnel around the country.
So, are we as guilty as MSM? Or, perhaps more so, because we use those pictures to “prove” the veracity of a story that we want to bring attention to? MSM does it to bring attention to an event. Some within our community use them to propagate a conspiracy story that has no foundation in fact.
Back to the Loves truck stop story. When it first started circulating, with follow up stories that it had been confirmed, a simple Internet check determined that the photos going around with the story were bogus, which brings serious doubt to the validity of whole story.
After tracking down the source of the original information, we find that he spoke to the mechanic — that part is true, though unverified by any evidence. However, it appears that others appended information about the clerk at Loves and the claim that there was confirmation Ohio Highway Patrol. Whoever added those elements must have done so in an effort to lend credibility, and/or enhance the story. The consequence is that credibility, and very much increased numbers, distorted, and brought discredit, to something that was worth investigating — to find the TRUTH of the matter.
Then, there is the source of the story. Where did it come from? Most will repost the story by copying and pasting, so that the story begins with “I was contacted by a friend who has always been truthful…” However, the person pasting has no idea who the “friend” is, or, quite often, even who the “I” is.
There are also those who will then comment that they have “verified” the initial information, since they have seen it posted elsewhere, perhaps 5 or six times. At this point, who can challenge the veracity of the information? The more often the story is repeated, the more effort it takes to weed through the proliferation of affirmation of the event.
Now the event, especially one as isolated as a claim of seeing a bunch of Muslims heading to same known/unknown destination, is not going to change our world, it will simply distort the view of it. However, wouldn’t it be nice if we had some reliable means of verifying such stories, so that the time wasn’t wasted chasing ghosts, and we would have a better picture, especially a realistic one, of what was going on around the country?
So, let’s look at what could be done to prevent such “intrusions” into our “intelligence”. But, first, let me refer you to a previous article that explains how the government uses such artifices to receive a desired effect on our community. The article is “Vortex“. It is an account of experience and research into the methodology of government in creating confusion, gathering intelligence, and discrediting people, where it serves the government.
Now, what should be done BEFORE any “incident” is reported to the patriot community? In this day and age where nearly everybody has a camera and a phone, we should practice the following:
- How many? How many vehicles, and how many people, are observed
- Description: Of vehicles, especially markings and license plates, with number and state/organization. And, of people, dress, language, if not English, other characteristics.
- Location, date, and time: Where, exactly, did this happen? Yes, we need the date not today, or yesterday, but the calendar date, and the time at which the observation was made. And, equally important, the direction of travel.
- Who all observed it? Was the reporting person alone? What is his name and contact information? If there were others with him, or if he spoke to others who can confirm, and perhaps provide addition information, who are they?
- Finally, and most importantly, pictures of the vehicles, scene, and individuals. You cannot have too many pictures, as things that you may not have noticed might be revealed with careful study of the pictures.
- If you do any follow up by making phone calls, or speaking with other witnesses, provide date, time, contact information, and what information they could provide.
Think about it. I have tried to find a cell phone without a camera. There are a few available, but they are very few, and very difficult to find. Absent pictures, in this day and age, there is also a very probability that the information is without merit. It is not a photo contest; it is substantiation of a claim. If you pass on information, absent most of the above information, then you are, at best, propagating a rumor, and at worst, will cause some to spend hours investigating the story, and, quite possibly, making you look bad for originating, or even passing on, the information — as an unreliable source. Not a good reputation to have.
If you have reason to believe that something did occur, find others in the area and have them look for verification, with camera in hand.
Note: We are still in the process of investigating this matter. If additional information is forthcoming, the article will be revised to incorporate that information.
