James Holmes

(NaturalNews) Once again the alternative press is proven correct with the assertion that the No. 1 cause of violent shootings is mind-altering psychiatric drugs. New information has been released about the prescription drugs being taken by James Holmes, the mind-controlled Aurora Colorado "Batman" movie theater shooter, and it reveals he was taking two mind-altering prescription medications, including a generic version of Zoloft.

I publicly predicted this on July 20 of 2012, when I wrote, "it is highly likely that James Holmes has been on psychiatric drugs. Not only does he fit the classic definition of a person typically put on psych drugs -- young white disturbed male -- his actions in the movie theater almost perfectly resemble those of the psyched-out shooters in the 1999 Columbine High School massacre: Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold."

The establishment tried to bury this fact for as long as possible, but as the LA Times now reports, "District Judge Carlos A. Samour Jr. reversed previous rulings on public access and made public the arrest affidavit and 12 search warrants."

Those search warrants reveal James Holmes was taking a chemical cocktail of psychiatric drugs, including:

• Sertraline, a generic version of Zoloft (antidepressant)
• Clonazepam, a benzodiazepine drug known to have "hypnotic properties"

These drugs cause violence, personality changes, amnesia and more

These two drugs produce devastating, dangerous side effects. For example, clonazepam causes increased violent behavior in individuals with schizophrenia. That's the conclusion of a 1982 study entitled "Clonazepam treatment of chronic schizophrenia: negative results in a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial."

Withdrawal from the drug causes anxiety, irritability, tremors and seizures. While on the drug, people can experience hallucinations, memory loss and "personality changes."

What's really important to note here is that alcohol consumption radically multiplies the side effects of clonazepam. According to Wikipedia, "Use of alcohol or other CNS depressants while taking clonazepam greatly intensifies the effects (and side-effects) of the drug. Side-effects of the drug itself are generally benign, but sudden withdrawal after long-term use can cause severe, even fatal, symptoms."

According to the search warrants that have now been made public, police found "48 containers of beer and other liquor" in Holmes' apartment. This means he was almost certainly combining clonazepam with alcohol.

The side effects of sertraline, an SSRI drug, are also potentially deadly. Sertraline comes with an FDA-mandated black box warning stating that the drug causes suicidal behavior. Withdrawal from sertraline causes irritability, agitation, dizziness, headache, nervousness, crying, emotional lability, bad dreams and anger. This has been scientifically revealed in a 1998 study entitled Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor discontinuation syndrome: a randomized clinical trial.

Two mind-altering prescription psychiatric drugs, alcohol and a gun... the media blames the gun

Nearly every mass shooting that has taken place in America over the past two decades is now linked to psychiatric drugs. This is why it was a simple matter for Natural News, InfoWars.com and others to predict that prescription drugs would eventually be revealed in the case of James Holmes.

The lying media, of course, rarely reports on the drugs. They focus on the guns, somehow not realizing that every gun must be operated by a human being whose limbs are controlled by a brain. When that brain is saturated with mind-altering prescription chemicals, bad things happen.

But rather than calling for guns to be stripped only from those who are taking psychiatric drugs, the gun control zealots attempt to blame all gun owners for the actions of one man... all while ignoring the psychiatric drug connections. The idea that psych drugs cause violent behavior has even been called a "conspiracy theory" even though the FDA requires these drugs to warn patients about precisely such side effects!

It's now clear that the courts were desperately trying to prevent this search warrant information from leaking out. There's no doubt another story in all this about the cover-up. Now that the facts have come out, by the way, the press is either ignoring or downplaying the story. Even when the LA Times got its hands on this information, it did not publish a headline saying something like "Confirmed: James Holmes was on antidepressant medications." If you want to read the real story that the LA Times should have published, you'll find it on InfoWars.com, where Paul Joseph Watson published a fantastic article on the subject entitled, "Confirmed: 'Batman' Shooter James Holmes Was On Psychotropic Drugs."

There, Watson writes:

Newly released court documents confirm that 'Batman' shooter James Holmes was taking the anti-depressant drug Zoloft before he conducted his massacre in an Aurora theater last July, underscoring yet again the prevalent yet underreported connection between psychotropic drugs and mass shootings.

Alternative media is the new REALITY media

What these developments prove yet again is that the so-called "alternative" media is now the REALITY media. We are the only ones reporting the truth on topics that the establishment wants to sweep under the rug.

Natural News predicted Holmes was on drugs, InfoWars predicted it, and CCHR even warned about it, along with countless other websites that dared to tell the truth about Holmes and his obvious use of psychiatric drugs.

Anthony Gucciardi also wrote in 2012, "Like virtually all massacre shooters before him, there is no doubt that the notorious Batman shooter James Holmes was taking hardcore pharmaceutical drugs."

He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
