July 16, 2024

It was just 48 hours ago that the FBI assured the American public that the would-be assassin, Thomas Matthew Crooks, did not have any mental illness problems. This, of course, is odd because most of the recent shooters had mental illness problems and were being seriously medicated with prescribed psychiatric mind-altering drugs.

Today, however, an “Exclusive” by the Daily Mail reports that family friends find that mental illness may have been in play. For example, according to unnamed family friends, he (crooks) was “increasingly disturbed young man who grew his hair long, isolated himself from friends and became plagued by mental health disturbances that led some to believe he was either bi-polar or schizophrenic.”

According to President Biden the FBI has been leading the investigation into the attempted assassination of former President Donald Trump at a rally in Butler, Pennsylvania, on Saturday. While law enforcement has identified the shooter as 20-year-old Thomas Matthew Crooks of Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, several key questions remain unanswered regarding the FBI’s response to the crime scene.

The lack of transparency during prior FBI investigations has raised concerns among the public and media about the FBI’s ability to this time conduct a thorough and responsible investigation, especially in light the “lawfare” that has been used against the former President. The shooting is being treated as an “attempted assassination” and act of domestic terrorism and the Director of the Secret Service, Kimberly Cheatle, is scheduled to testify before a House Oversight Committee on July 22nd. The purpose of the hearing is to provide insight into how the twenty-year old was able to commit the assassination attempt, resulting in the former President being wounded, a fellow American dead and two others seriously injured.

Was Alleged Assassin Receiving Mental Health “Treatment,” and on Psychiatric Drugs?


Thomas Matthew Crooks

July 14, 2024

It’s early, but what the public knows so far is that several news reports suggest that Thomas Matthew Crooks may have been receiving mental health treatment. Is anyone surprised by this given that the last three mass shooters were under the care of mental health professionals?

Let’s look at a few examples of why it appears that suspected assassin, Thomas Matthew Crooks, was a mental health patient.  According to news reports Crooks had a mental meltdown on a college campus.  The video allegedly depicts Crooks verbally abusing Trump supporters at a campaign table on a campus. Crooks further allegedly appears to be screaming vile remarks at the workers at the campaign table such as “slash his throat, every f*%kin Republican, slash Republicans throats.”

Is Big Pharma Behind Copyright Claims in Legal Battle for Covenant Shooter’s Documents?

According to The Tennessee Star, Ed Yarbrough, of the Spencer Fane Law Firm, who represents the Covenant Children’s Trust, has nothing to say about whether or not any financial compensation has been paid by the Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) to the victims of its patient, Audrey Hale.

Remember the Covenant Children’s Trust claims to own the copyright of the shooter’s documents, including Hale’s mental health records and manifesto. Yarbrough was asked whether his client, the Covenant School or Covenant Presbyterian Church were approached by VUMC to discuss its potential civil liability over its treatment of Hale. What did Yarbrough have to say? Nothing. I’m “not able to comment.” Why?

Given the twenty-two years of mental health “treatment” at the hands of Vanderbilt’s psychiatrists, it seems logical that its failed mental health program for Hale would be a huge target for the families of the victims and others. So, the fact that Yarbrough is crickets about a payout one can’t help but wonder whether Big Pharma is involved.

School Shooters’ Nikolas Cruz & Audrey Hale Were Recipients of Drug Cocktails. It’s Time to Make Providers Accountable.

Finally, journalists are asking the necessary questions relating to mass shootings, how they are investigated, prosecuted and where the responsibility lies.  The Tennessee Star has nailed the questions that have escaped the smartest guys in the room – the behavioral health unit of the FBI, lawmakers, and the entire justice system. Who is responsible and how did the mental health treatments & psychiatric cocktails contribute to the motivations and actions of so many of today’s mass killers.

The Tennessee Star’s powerful series of leaked documents relating to Audrey Hale’s 22-years of psychiatric treatment by Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) is shocking but, remarkably, not unlike the decades of treatment that the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooter in Parkland, Fl., Nikolas Cruz, received at the hands of the Florida Henderson Behavioral Health, Inc.

Henderson is a behavioral health vendor that is funded by the State of Florida and had many opportunities during his “treatment” sessions to determine Cruz’s mental health status. What did Henderson’s mental health wizards conclude about Cruz? That’s right, Cruz was “not a harm to himself or anyone else” prior to his killing spree. Ironically, like Hale, Cruz lived a life of one psychiatric drug cocktail to the next.

Sandy Hook’s, Adam Lanza, and Nashville’s, Audrey Hale, Mental Health Records Are Key to Violent Attacks

July 8, 2024

The decision by Tennessee Judge I’Ashea L. Myles to withhold from public view every single document written by Audrey Hale, the Covenant School shooter, is like Groundhog Day. Remember that all the mental health records surrounding the Sandy Hook shooting also have been withheld. What is it that can’t be seen in these shooting incidents and who is being protected?

Recall that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting on December 14, 2012, was one of the deadliest school shootings, leaving 20 children and 6 adults dead at the hands of 20-year-old Adam Lanza. Like in the case of Audrey Hale, in the aftermath of Sandy Hook, Lanza’s complete mental health record was never made available for public review and may be providing cover for Yale University Child Study Center and Robert King, MD.

Who is the Judge Protecting? Covenant School Shooter’s Writings Won’t See the Light of Day.

July 5, 2024

Tennessee Judge I’Ashea L. Myles has ruled that not one page of the writings by the Covenant school shooter, Audrey Hale, will be released for public review. Why? Sounds like a cover up. Who is being protected?

The ruling is an insult that helps no one. The cat is already out of the bag. Audrey Hale was a mental patient from the age of six when in 2001 Hale’s parents turned her over to the mental health “experts” at Vanderbilt University Hospital. And had it not been for the leaked information from a law enforcement source to the Tennessee Star reporters, we’d have no idea the amount of psychiatric drugging that was being conducted on Hale.

But first we must take a step back and wonder why Hale’s parents found it helpful or necessary to turn over their daughter’s writings to the Covenant School and the parents of the victims. Why? Mom and Dad Hale knew their daughter was a mental health mess for many years. Mom and Dad Hale knew about the psychiatric drug experimenting that was done on their daughter. In fact, Norma Hale is reported to have told investigators that Audrey had to “go through a series of medications to find one that was appropriate for her.” Really?

Covenant Shooter, Audrey Hale’s “Mental Health Treatment” Would Make the Angels Weep

July 3, 2024


New mental illnesses and prescribed psychiatric drug information for the Covenant School shooter, Audrey Hale, is released daily by Tom Pappert of The Tennessee Star. And it seems deliberate that this information is being withheld by law enforcement and will only see the light of day if it is leaked to reporters. Otherwise, if the public was to get its hands on Hale’s complete mental health/psychiatric drug record, it would make the Angels weep.

Last week it was reported that four prescribed mind-altering drugs (Lorazepam, Buspirone, Lexapro and Hydroxyzine) were found during the search of Hales parent’s home after the shooting. Since then, two more articles have revealed that Hale had been prescribed Prozac (Fluoxetine) for depression when she was in high school and became suicidal while taking the drug. No surprise there. Prozac, like all the antidepressants, carries the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) black box warning for suicidality.

FBI Shooters Report Excludes Any Data Relating to Mental Health and Psychiatric Drugs


June 25, 2024

A new report by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) documenting the common factors relating to active shooter incidents completely excludes psychiatric drug use.  The executive summary highlights that in 2013 President Obama signed into law the Investigative Assistance for Violent Crimes Act of 2012 in response to clarifying the role of the FBI in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook mass shooting.  Nothing in this Act prohibits or limits the collection of vital data related to mental health products or services that may be pertinent in mass shooting incidents.

Ironically, in the introduction, the FBI explains that it will not include information about drug related violence. Why? What does that even mean? Is the FBI referring to illegal and legal? Even though the intent of the report is to “better understand the levels of threats associated with active shooter incidents,” the FBI has deliberately left out information that not only provides insight into the actions of the shooters, but in today’s prescription-fueled drug world, is critical.  Missing from the FBI report literally is anything to do with mental health. Psychiatric drugs, psychotropic drugs, mental health, mental health records, behavioral health, or medications do not show up in the report.

Maine Governor’s Independent Commission Withholds Important Drug Information on Robert Card

June 23, 2024

The saturation of media coverage on government “special commissions,” failed gun control legislation and mass mental health spending in the aftermath of mass killings, whether by intent or accident, misses the singular thing that usually is withheld… the name of the drug, or cocktail of psychiatric drugs, the killers have been prescribed and by who.

The failed attempts to legislate violent human behavior, and the deep thinkers appointed to commissions that routinely produce investigations that fail to answer even the most basic questions, do nothing to reduce mass violence.  In fact, what these commissions really are revealing is an apparent determination to withhold behavioral health information, including psychiatric drugs use among the mass shooters.
