Was Dorner a Sign of the Times?
Christopher Dorner – the former Los Angeles police officer and fugitive accused of killing several people, including one police officer and a sheriff's deputy ... died this week in a cabin fire while on the run. A rambling manifesto Dorner issued had many gripes, but chief among them were that racism, abuse of power and corruption ran rampant in the Los Angeles Police Department and that he had been fired for reporting it. Now Dorner is being compared to movie heroes, has a song written about him and has a long list of fan pages on Facebook. But make no mistake: Christopher Dorner is no hero. – New York Times
Free-Market News: We are seeing a lot of pushback in the mainstream media to any mythologizing of Chris Dorner. This column by New York Times editorialist Charles Blow is along those lines. He points out that Dorner brutally took lives and intended to take more, and that his actions were not those of a hero but a murderer.
No argument there. But was Blow asked to write this, or given the suggestion? This would fit in with our theory that Dorner's actions were unexpected and took the powers-that-be by surprise, even made them uneasy. Blow's editorial seems almost like a form of damage control. If so, it's significant.
It is well known at this point that the New York Times provides a viewpoint that is in sync with larger US powers-that-be, specifically the US Intel community that acts as a proxy for the tiny power elite that actually runs the US and utilizes its armed forces to help create world government.
Operation Mockingbird is still in effect, so far as we know. That operation, sponsored by the CIA, informed top publishers of their duty to country and requested their support in advancing what we call certain dominant social themes that would enhance the US's economic and military power in the world.
Dorner's actions were apparently not part of any dominant or subdominant social theme. Articles by Blow and others in the mainstream press suggest that US officials were taken by surprise by Dorner's actions. What happened with Dorner was not, then, in any sense planned.
Spasmodic "directed history" is doubtless as old as the human race. Leaders have surely sought to manipulate public opinion on a regular or irregular basis with planned sociopolitical and economic crises – on either a bigger or smaller stage depending on the size of the audience.
But only the modern elites, from what we can tell, (at least in recently recorded human history) have taken directed history to new heights, seemingly orchestrating most major historical events, at least in the past several hundred years, to support a steady progression towards a more centralized world.
Here at The Daily Bell, we regularly comment on these elite memes and how they work. We also note and analyze what may be various violent false flags that seem to be taking place with increasing frequency.
Some recent incidents that are said to have had false flag indicators include the Aurora movie shooting and the more recent Sandy Hook school shooting. Of course, 9/11 is commonly held by conspiracy theorists to be the most famous of recent false flags, conveniently kicking off a "war on terror" and other governmental efforts that have resulted in fewer and fewer freedoms throughout the West.
The alternative 'Net media often accuses the powers-that-be of orchestrating violence for purposes of passing legislation that removes guns and the like. Some of this seems to have a ring of truth, but nonetheless, we don't believe that Dorner was part of this process. It doesn't feel that way ...
And now we see columns like this one, directly asking people not to read anything special into Dorner's behavior. Usually by this time, the mainstream press would have linked Dorner's behavior to a necessity for gun control but Dorner doesn't fit that pattern.
The idea of gun control in the US is that only officials are properly trained to wield guns. But Dorner WAS a police officer and his actions don't reinforce this particular meme.
For this reason – and because of columns like Blow's warning people away from making any connections between Dorner and larger sociopolitical issues – we would tend to think that the Dorner episode took (Tavistock's) narrative spinners and the US government by surprise. Here's more from Blow's column:
Through his own words, Dorner forfeits any aspiration to the title of hero.
Some commentators have tried valiantly to thread an impossibly small needle in separating what Dorner did, which all people of good conscience despise, from the serious issues he raises ...
I agree that the issues of police brutality and corruption should now and always be part of the conversation, particularly when discussing police departments with a bad history when it comes to minority and other vulnerable communities.
But I do not see a need to explain why people — particularly many on social media — are mythologizing Dorner. Rooting for a suspected killer who makes threats against even more innocent people and their families is just horrendous. It's not exciting; it's revolting ...
This is not a game or a movie. This is about real people who lead real lives and their real families who dug real graves. Let's give everyone involved time to mourn. Let's have the respect to not honor the person believed to be responsible for the mourning.
Dorner would seem to be a candidate for an elite false flag. We note, for instance, that his behavior allowed for a drone to be used on domestic (US) soil to search for a US citizen. But columns like Blow's warn us off reading anything of larger significance into Dorner's actions.
Instead, what we seem to have is a truly messy incident that played out in the US on national TV, alerting people once more to the corruption of one of the nation's largest police departments – and also to an inconvenient reality – those trained by the US government to handle weapons could be every bit as unstable as non-uniformed civilians.
The significance of Dorner may lie not in any false-flag manipulation but in the stark reality that the ongoing economic depression, combined with increasing US authoritarianism, is going to give rise to further episodes of social instability. Some of these may be a good deal graver and more widespread than Dorner's single operation – which nonetheless occupied a good deal of LA law enforcement personnel and manpower over an extended period of time.
Conclusion: Perhaps this explains the hundreds of millions of rounds of military grade ammunition that Homeland Security continues to buy. Did they already perform a similar analysis?

It's hard to tell, but it looks as if one of theirs got out of control and had to be put down before he spilled his guts and released a lot of sensitive information which could have alerted the public to a lot of police corruption, and who knows what else. I understand that a "diary" was "found" "explaining" his plans. How convenient.
In any case, they have to control the narrative in order to write their "directed history" the way they want it told.
Was this a human sacrifice with the victim as patsy? We will probably never know for sure. Though clean up and spin were necessary, they still took advantage of this opportunity to fan the fires of division and anarchy by having their agents provocateurs out there calling for "cop killing," etc.
Despite the messy implications, I see this as another stepping stone in a very long series to the construction of their police state, North American Union, and eventual one world government. The shock value and fear generated by these bizarre incidents is of priceless value to the elites, even if things go awry.
Libertarians call for nothing but peaceful co-existence, social cooperation, and free trade with our neighbors whenever possible. We also believe in peaceful non-cooperation with tyranny whenever possible.
Obviously, when these sensible actions are not possible, we might be forced to take sterner measures. But we DO NOT call for "cop killing." That's the handy work of the elites and their disinformation machine.

It is kind of suspicious that the PTB found two of his IDs close by
They said the same about 9-11, id's found of the so called terrorists next to ground zero?
most of these "terrorists" worked for us govt as cia
Dorner incident also worked to try to inflame black vs asian/white anxiety
i'm not saying it was planned

Thank you. Yours was an outstanding comment. Personally, that is how I felt too. Especially, where it concerned the girls vs the thugs.

I agree with the conclusion that Mockingbird is still in effect. You can see the change in attitude within the main stream press regarding the Dorner incident in the last few days.

In a comment on an earlier article on the Dorner escapade, I believe I made a significant miscalculation on Dorner's effect on LAPD manpower. Here is the corrected version.
I had previously assumed 20 officers at each of the 50 presumed targets of Dorner's wrath, having a bit more data now, I will now assume 12. I also forgot to calculate in protective man hours for the entire week. Here is the adjusted calculation:
12 cops x 24 hours x 50 targets = 14400 man hours.
7000 total LAPD x (40 hours per week / 7 days) = 40000 man hours per day.
14400 / 40000 = 36%
36% of LAPD tied up by one man. One. Man.

You adjusted it up!

When Nietzsche made official what many already suspected, that God was dead, and that there probably was no hereafter, attitudes and ideas about a lot of things changed in the West. People came to believe that their time on earth was all they were going to get, there would be no pie in the sky. Accumulation of wealth and preservation of life and health leaped ahead of eternal bliss in the ordinary priorities. Individuals who disregarded these two benchmarks came to be considered as insane. The Protestant work ethic evolved from a measure of religious conformity to a societal requirement. Risky behavior of any sort, such as duelling, was frowned upon or even made illegal. Westerners still had a highly developed desire for revenge and punishment but removed them from the personal to the institutional sphere. Rather than risk their own more and more precious lives in their personal defense and exact retribution from those that wronged them, they paid agent thugs to carry out societal cleansing for them. The preservation of life to the extent that an individual spends his last years in a commercial facility, drooling in front of a television watching Seinfeld re-runs and waiting for an aide that speaks English as a second language to come and change their diaper is now the goal.
Dorner demonstrated what "normal" folks consider insanity, exacting revenge against an intitution personally, knowing for certain that his behavior would result in his premature death but willing to accept that outcome. Certainly his "victims" should have been aware that they were placing their own lives at a greater risk by being on the front lines of the coercion community. School girls in 1945 Japan didn't have the option of making that choice.

It seems that government has only two sorts of responses now, completely ignore or insanely over-react.

Thanks for the sane perspective. There are false flags ops and sometimes bad things just happen. I still say be aware of any discussions of regionalizing police forces as a result of the Dormer incident and any like it.
