false flag

The public response to the shooting in San Bernardino, California yesterday immediately included the ridiculous, baseless and perfidious comments by clowns like Alex Jones of InfoWars.com and the bottom-of-the-barrel sludgy-bits websites NaturalNews.com and Beforeitsnews.com.

Edgar Mitchell continues to make preposterous claims

mitchell_moon_080725_mn
