Was the “Batman Shooting” a Ritualistic Murder Carried Out by Mind Controlled Patsy?



When terrible events like the now infamous “Batman Shooting” occurs, I tend to not have a knee-jerk reaction of yelling “It’s a conspiracy” because, obviously, sometimes it is not. But in some cases, like this one, tidbits of information begin leaking out, weird synchronicities surface and, at a certain point, one can’t help but think  “hmm”, “huh?” and “what?”. Pieces of the puzzle start coming together and, when one is aware of the symbolism and workings of the occult elite, the whole thing starts to look like a big, dark, disturbing ritual that was carried out by pre-programmed patsy. No, I won’t say that I cracked the case, but here are some facts that simply cannot be overlooked.

A Mind-Controlled Pasty?

As new information surfaces regarding James Holmes (who dubbed himself “The Joker”), many facts point toward a man who is prone to having alter-personas, delving into “inner-worlds” and generally exhibiting the behavior of either a schizophrenic or a programmed drone. Obviously in an altered state of mind and most probably embodying a completely different alter-persona, Holmes told police at the time of his arrest that he was “The Joker”. In this article that appeared in the Telegraph, Holmes was reportedly fixated on the concept of altered states of mind.

“After the massacre Holmes calmly told detectives he had taken 100mg of the prescription painkiller Vicodin, and identified himself as “The Joker”. The same drug was found in the system of actor Heath Ledger when he died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs in 2008. Ledger played The Joker in the previous Batman film The Dark Knight. Vicodin side-effects can include euphoria, paranoia and, in rare cases, hallucinations.

The video footage of Holmes was taken at Miramar College in San Diego and showed him explaining that “temporal illusions” are “an illusion that allows you to change the past”. Holmes said he had been working on “subjective experience, which is what takes place inside the mind as oppose to the external world”.

According to news sources, Holmes was pursuing a neuroscience doctoral program at the University of Colorado’s Anschutz Medical Campus. Could this prestigious academic location dedicated the study of human brain functioning and behavior also be Holmes’ mind-control programming site? The concepts stated above of “illusions that allow you to change the past” and “subjective experience” are very reminiscent to the programming of alter-personas in mind control, where illusions are indeed used to create a false pasts in MK alter-personas.

After his arrest, Holmes appeared to be completely dissociated from reality, as if still in character.

“Holmes has yet to show any signs of remorse and his behavior is reported to be erratic and bizarre. Per a released inmate outside the jail, “He was spitting at the door and spitting at the guards. He’s spitting at everything. Dude was acting crazy.”

 The Odd Batman Connection

One-Eyed Heath Ledger as The Joker in this movie poster. There’s some Illuminati crap going on here.

As stated above, Holmes dyed his hair orange and claimed he was “The Joker” – as played by Heath Ledger in the previous installment of the Batman series The Dark Knight. We’ve seen in previous articles (notably “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” and Heath Ledger’s Sacrifice), that there are many odd and ritualistic facts surrounding the death of Heath Ledger after he played the dark and disturbed character of the Joker, a role that apparently took a toll on the actor’s health.

Shooter James Holmes even went as far as to take Vicodin, a drug found in Heath Ledger at the time of his death. Vicodin is a powerful pain-killer with morphine-like effects that is used in mind control to “dull out” victims. There is treatment for Vicodin abuse.

Is there some kind of ritualistic connection between The Dark Knight, the sacrificial death of Heath Ledger and this new installment of a Batman movie that was “launched” with a mass murder? Is there a reason why this mass-murder, which occurred during the midnight screening of a movie called Dark Knight RISING took place in a city called Aurora, the name Roman goddess of dawn (dawn being the time where the sun begins to rise)? Another interesting fact: Aurora is considered to be the mother of the morning star, also know as the Light Bringer, or Lucifer.


Pop Culture Synchronicity

As it is always the case in these mega-rituals,  the event appears to have been “foretold” in mass media. Coincidence, premeditation, or synchronicity? Not sure, but here are some strange things that appeared in the mass media before the shooting:

Released only days before the shooting, Lil Wayne’s video “My Homies Still” features him and his boys sitting in a movie theater full of skeletons. Aside from this scarily prophetic scene, the video features many dismembered dummies, a symbol associated with Mind Control.


Shown right before the fatal showing of Dark Knight Rises, this trailer of the movie Gangster Squad ends with a big shooting in a movie theater.


In the trailer, gangsters walk through the movie screen and start shooting at the crowd. Strange that the people at the “Batman shooting” actually saw this right before it then happened to them. Fiction indeed turned into reality.


This page from the 1986 comic “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns” features a crazed man killing three people in a movie theater. In the comic, media then states that the shooting spree was inspired by Batman.


Was the Batman shooting a mega-ritual carried out by the occult elite and its mass media appendage? It is not possible to say for certain, but a lot of the information that is surfacing leads Vigilant observers to realize: “Something’s weird about this”. As it is always the case in these types of events, the “investigation” will most likely begin and end with the proverbial “lone nut”, the single crazy psychopath toward which all fingers will be pointed. Were there people pulling his strings? Maybe, but the media always show the puppets, never the puppet masters.

Some might ask: “Why would ‘they’ even want to carry out these kinds of rituals?” It is indeed quite difficult to compute these events without taking into account “their” mindset, which is all about magick, symbolism, numerology and the power of rituals. Blood sacrifices are the most potent forms of ritual and the more people who witness and emotionally participate in that ritual, the more potency it gains. Right now, the whole world has its eyes turned towards the town of Aurora. And while outraged citizens across America demand a culprit to pay for this horrendous act, the REAL masterminds behind it will just sit back and enjoy the show.

As an optimist, I want not to believe in an evil purposeful plot but your posts are insightful and intelligent. The connections between recent mass murders cannot be coincidental.

Funny picture there in the cinema with those skeletons seated on chairs. Good post by the way!

alot of you can figure all this out after the facts but can any of you figure something is going to happen before it does???

I have just recently found your page and there is some great education here….I have that video of Holmes giving that same presentation in college. The kid does NOT look crazy, and he when this kid starts talking about the more mind controlling part, he gives the impression (IMO) that he finds that to be strange himself. I have read a few things regarding the professor that he was working under at the time the video was made and it's all just messed up. The main reason for my comment is about that crazy orange-crap-colored hair he had…forget that he called himself the "joker"…does no one find it extremely odd that this kids hair is EXACTLY like those clowned gymnast that performed during the Ceremony for the 2012 Olympics? And then there was the part during the Ceremony where "Batman & Robin" come out onto the stage (i have no… Read more »

I'm a new reader to your site. I'm sorry I'm so late is seeing this but I've been catching up on everything I've been missing. This article made me think … you know, "they" sure are putting a lot of emphasis on mental health issues lately. It's like "they" want us all to think there's a new and serious problem with people just going mental for no reason whatsoever. It's scary. What's stops them from doing it to any of us? Knowledge, I guess. But I'm no one. I can do nothing but protect the people in my little corner of the world. I wouldn't even know where to start anyway. I'm waking up. I've been asleep a long time. But, like I said, what difference can little ole me make anyway?

The comic strip and the killer – both have orange hair. Comic strip makes reference to "my sweet satan" and "stairway to heaven." So satan is the key to the Above? That kind of cross-belief exists only with a certain type of people, no?

Also, that comic strip came out in 1986.

1986 – 2013 = 27 years

Why 27 years exactly?

Because it's a prominent number for them.

The whole thing looked completely fake and staged to me.


Please research TV Fakery. There was no shooting at all – just actors. It was completely staged by the media.

Are there any high up people adamantly fighting against this ? People working for the CIA must know, why re they succumbing to this?

According ti eyewitness accounts, two gas canisters were thrown from 2 different directions. Not only thing wrong with the incident, there were 2 gas masks found along with the trail of blood leaving the back door, and the assault rifle was neatly propped up against the back of the theatre. This leaves many a' question along with Jimmy was found incoherent locked in his car and unable to walk. The worst of all is the fact several people said the gunman was 5'8 max, when ol' Jimmy is at least 6'4ish. This thing reeks to high hell and JAmes is 100% innocent. Nevermind the fact that in his picture of 1st court appearance, his lawyer is a very busy lady. She was Mrs. Phelps, the parent of a non existent kid who wasn't shot at sandy hoax, nobody was and Adam Lanza doesn't even f*****g exist, and she was also… Read more »

the shooter in the comics is redhead too

In Quentin Tarantino' s movie ' Inglorious Basterds' there' s also a massacre scene in a cinema. My question is, has it any prophetic meaning too? Or is that an fase assumption?
Greets from holland.

Tarantino is sick twisted mofo. I used to love his movies, the dialouges were brilliant. But now I realize its nothing but spell he puts the audience in with it. His screenplays are his own sick twisted fantasys. So is his butt buddy Robert Rodriguez.

Hi there. I think an entire incident must be based on MK and trauma. I heard this guy had no friends, was very intelligent, but also was schizophrenic. I've noticed when your self-control weakens, then trauma-self might get control over the mind and body. Hollywood movies are more like a trigger, when ur trauma-self identifies with the "hero" and his actions. Look at Harry Potter. That was a boy with hard trauma. He lost his parents and had this sign on his forehead, meaning split personality, where one of the personalities was very close to Voldemort. When people open up their 3rd eye, lose their identity they become very sensitive and vulnerable as the gate to their subconscious had been widely opened. If there was some kind of a trauma, or pain… brain alters the way. If a girl saw her father beating up her mother there is a huge… Read more »

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/mar/12/judge… Colorado approves "truth serum" for use on James Holmes, should he plead innocent due to legal insanity.

Hold on there, Realistic. Did you see Jesse Ventura's Conspiracy Theory episode, "Brain Invaders"? They discussed the GWEN towers being used for ELF mind control.

Well, here's one more coincidence to add to the list:

There is a GWEN tower located in Aurora, CO that has the designation "#666"

The Univ. of Colorado Anschutz is really close to NORAD, which is in Colorado Springs. I know that NORAD is the home to the government's "psychic headliners". "Headliners" are groups of extremely "gifted" psychics who "read" future headlines for the government. They do a lot of experimental work there with the occult and psychic abilities. I would NOT be surprised if they had scientists there or nearby who were working on MK type stuff.

Has anyone noticed hair color of the cartoon character and Holmes' one during the shootings?Both had orange-like hair!

Its a possibility that he was under some sort of mind control ore subliminal suggestions. But the case that really needs to be brought out and the whole truth laid out before the American people is Sandy Hook. Did it actually happen . Was is it staged or what really transpired in that incident….just to very many discrepancies and unanswered questions to let slide off into the oblivion and be forgotten,,,,those alleged shootings were an outright attack on the nation and need to be brought fully out in the open and that's the bottom line.if people stand and let this one go unanswered then it just like 9-11 all over again.

Can this really be the product of human minds or is it arranged by the evil mastermind, Satan, himself? Similar things happened with 9-11, Connecticut and others.

Don't forget the past. Its been happening since the biggest conspiracy ever. JFK……..
That is still the biggest mystery. And no even an ex Marine like Oswald couldn't have pulled that off alone with a bolt action rifle. He was a patsy period.
Remember Columbine? Those two kids were obvious slaves as well, they made a movie called "Elephant" during the tweenies which involved the same situation. I remember when it happened, the media was saying they were loners who had "no friends" in school and that they were homosexuals for each other and played video games all day long. Heck in that movie they even showed some video game playing of an archaic looking game that was obviously done by some coder in 10 minutes which showed a guy with a gun shooting random people.

The Temple at Pergamos(Phrigia), Asia Minor, was to Cybele, THE Great Mother goddess worshiped 5,000 yrs. BEFORE, the female goddesses of either Sumer, or Egypt. THE Temple copied at Barry Hussien's inaguration. The Cult of Cybele is the oldest chthonic cult on earth, one which practices RITUAL whole burnt sacrifice. THE reason adults, and children, were burnt alive at the Waco,TX compound. THE reason many humans were burnt whole, AND alive, in the ovens of Nazi occupied Poland. ( One-evil.net ) Ovens which were located at the 5 points of a pentagram laid out on the ground in Poland, with a Temple to Cybele centered within all points. Cybele's priests were feminized, self-castrated men like Applewhite of the San Diego cult. Like the celibate Catholic priests of Cybele today. Like Gulliani dressed in women's clothes. The Magna Mater (Great Mother) goddess of old is still worshiped today. The Saxon/British name… Read more »

what about these things that an inmate is reporting he talked to Holmes about? The media is obviously trying to discredit him:

But Unruh insists the sporadic conversation continued even after Holmes was moved to another cell in the area. He says that Holmes told him "he felt like he was in a video game" during the shooting, that "he wasn't on his meds" and "nobody would help him." He says Holmes also mentioned NLP — presumably, neuro-linguistic programming, a much-scorned and outmoded approach to psychotherapy — and claimed to have been "programmed" to kill by an evil therapist.

"When he got out to his car, he wasn't programmed no more," Unruh says. "It sounded kind of crazy. He was trying to run it by me, basically."

the papers and officials claimed the man called James Holmes (cf pornstar 70s/80s) dubbed himself "The Joker" well he ought to know the joker had green hair. This is "The Riddler" it is one big ritualistic riddle to be solved.

James' father worked with DAARPA, his grandfather worked with the CIA and Defense Intel after WW2 in Turkey so there you have the black ops connection.

Hide the truth in plain sight.

Remember folks "believe nothing, question everything" follow your intuition

It is said most victims come from military familys.

The first connection with 'Lil Wayne I noticed was his name, WAYNE… obviously a Batman reference. What about the fact that in that shot from his video, My homies still, there are 12 skeletons. 12! Now, take another look at the actual people in that video. There are 9 people, 4 on bottom, 3 above them and 2 above them. They are almost pyramidal formation. Only seems to be missing the eye of horus! Lastly, isn't really along the same lines but one of the guys in the front row is wearing zebra print pants and another is wearing a jacket reminiscent of the one worn by MJ in the Thriller video. Just some thoughts…

Hellο therе! I just wiѕh to offer you a

hugе thumbs up for thе greаt infoгmаtion yοu've got right here on this post. I am coming back to your website for more soon.

It is perfect time to make some plans for the future and it's time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting things or tips. Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article. I wish to read more things about it!

I think this isn't the same kid as pictured in 2006 – look at these photos from the NYTimes:


From this article:


Different eyebrows, eyelids, natural hair color (look at his sideburns in the orange hair photo) and face shape.

you can see the dip in the outer rim of his left ear (his left, our right) that's the same.

Something you might keep in mind. CIA operatives testified that after MK Ultra was disbanded in 1973 that Helms did not have the files pertaining to Monarch destroyed as he testified to the Church Committee. The files were instead placed in the hands of 'private assets'. Who do you suppose those private hands belonged to? The CIA walked hand in hand in those days with the Military Industrial Complex. You know, the people who make guns and ammunition. Have you seen the sales figures[guns and ammo] after an incident like Aurora or Virginia Tech? So easy to put a trigger in a trailer. It is my contention that it is private industry, translate big business, who makes a larger use of Monarch programming than the clumsy government, which is simply a Wall St tool to begin with. How else do you explain that corporations are apparently people. You know, when… Read more »
I was wondering the other day about why these Batman sequels hav been plagued with tragedy. Then those tragedies overshadow the movie. Anytime you mention The Dark Knight, Heath Ledger's great performance is brought up and then his death. And the same now with the horrific shooting in Aurora. What's lost now is the messages of these movies. Nolan shows us that the world is run by the corrupt elite who are controlled without knowing by a certain group who hide in the shawdows and that its up to everyday people to rise up. This is the first "blockbuster" movie that has a large fan base and a story with meaning and substance. For example The Avengers was a great movie and alot of fun to watch but it was like fluff, nothing more to it. Maybe the powers that be didn't like this message and decided to cause a… Read more »

My husband read an article that said Holme's father was scheduled to testify against some elitists in the government to uncover some criminal activity. His dad would have testified the day after the shooting…..if the shooting had not occured. I'll see if he still has the article and I'll post the URL for it.

I have a post with a list of questions (fully referenced) the MSM (Mainstream Media) has neglected to ask, which could shed an awful lot of light on this horrible tragedy. You can read the post "Questions the MSM doesn't ask about James Holmes" at http://wp.me/p1mEWh-7P, which includes: 1. Why does the MSM report that James Holmes was acting crazy in jail, yet the local Colorado news station reports that he is completely normal? 2. Why do victims report that James Holmes methodically picked his victims, in contrast to the media's reports that he seemed to randomly spray gunfire? 3. According to news reports, James Holmes was an "outstanding marksman", however no one seems to be seeking out how he received this training? 4. Why did the University of Colorado remove Dr Lynne Fenton's (James Holmes psychiatrist) web page, and not disclose that she had been reprimanded on 3 different… Read more »
Patrick Leahy, who cameos in the Dark Knight series, including a scene where the Joker threatens him with a knife at the fundraiser for Harvey Dent, is actually implicated in the Trance-Formation of America explicitly. From a random excerpt I happened to be reading: CHATTER 30: IN THE INTEREST OF TIME AND SPACE Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont), who served as vice chairman on the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee in 1985-86, was a "friend" of Senator Byrd. Leahy's position on Byrd's Senate Appropriations Committee, coupled with his former position in Intelligence, afforded him an inordinate amount of power and influence. While I had cause to have contact with Senator Leahy on numerous occasions, Kelly was apparently more familiar with him than I. This was evidenced by our meeting with him in Vermont in the late summer of 1985. Alex Houston was booked to "entertain" at the State Fair in Rutland, Vermont.… Read more »

The book, in case you didn't know, is written from the perspective of a deprogrammed Monarch victim who served as Reagan's "Presidential Model", Cathy O'Brien. Kelly is the name of her young daughter.

The Joker at the Batman shooting wasn't supposed to make it out alive but his main gun jammed. Just like a kid at a video game it was "GAME OVER". This shooting and the others are nothing but a Psych Op..

Please take the guns Uncle Sam so we will feel safe!!!! Just a progression.

More people are killed in drunk driving accidents. 2009 National Statistics – 33,808 people were killed in traffic accidents. 10,839 of these deaths was a result of alcohol (32% of all traffic deaths). <—dontdie drunk.org.

We need a society where everybody is trained in the use of firearms and then given one to operate during high school. That way, nobody will every f**k with anyone again. New World Order? Please. Try taking over a nation that heavily armed, even WITH all the best weapons technology on Earth.

Of course this is the reason we don't have good education or sufficient gun rights to begin with.

I would like to share some things with you. For starters the movie that are coming out of DC Comics. DC = 600 DC comics is in building owned by Rockefeller's building number 666. The person that runs the lighting in the movie theater is called a LX = 60. The sneakers that Batman wore are called Air Jordan 6. This makes for UNHOLY GROUND. Grounds for EVIL! I have much more to share. I would like to start a radio program and get the information out there!


Check out the real life inspired movie of the Menendez brothers, who shot their parents to death. Their alibi to the police was that they went to see a batman movie at Century Cinema. Weird similarity.

There was an article online linking the father of Holms as a guy who was to go into court to testify against the big bankers. apparently he discovered an algorithm to find out where all that money that slips through the cracks (pockets of bankers) goes. his presentation was apparently scheaduled for the same day. here is an article about it.
sounds like a "don't f**k with us" from big brother.

The batman theatre hoax never happened at all. look into it.

Guys, regarding the funding for weapons etc… It's very common for PhD candidates to get grants from universities. I'm from Australia and applying for a grant, it's roughly $26000 which is intended to pay for your living expenses while you dedicate full time hours to your research.

It's not THAT prestigious, if you get good marks (ie. Honours First Class) you pretty much get it offered to you… If you want to undertake a PhD without the grant, it can just be waaaayyy to expensive, and not worth it.

So I guess that settles where his weaponry money came from!!!

If that were the case they would have said it.
There is no explanation for where he got the funds for all that military gear.

After reading all the stories about the Batman shooter it occurs to me that he is not a mind-control victim in the traditional sense, such as a Manchurian Candidate. He is the victim of Voice-to-Skull (V2k). There are certain indicators of this, such as him being in a groggy state, appearing to be half-asleep. This could be a consequence of ongoing sleep deprivation, which is the hallmark of so-called Perpetrator interference. Yes, the author is correct in saying that this is an Illuminati agenda. The Illuminati folks like nothing better than to mind-control their subjects and then sit back and watch the results of their horror-filled handywork. God help this man, if this is the case, because no one else can, after what he's been forced to do.

Evil is STUPID and BORING.

If one is fascinated by Evil instead of bored, then one is in definite trouble.

thank you for posting this, vigilantcitizen, first of all. i didnt have the time to read all the comments above, and my apologies if i repeating the same, but, i am very interested in one thing: does the identity of the murdered ones count, or was it just random?

It IS weird. I agree with that. On one level this whole line of thought feels like paranoia, slipping off the rails of what is rationally considered to be real. On the other it becomes more difficult to hold onto a former notion of reality under the circumstances. A frightening summer heat wave and drought that seem to be exclusively in the U.S.. These really become scary if considered a trend that might be even worse next year, including the issue of massive ongoing crop failure and famine. Then devastating fires in Colorado shortly before the theater massacre. Now a shooting in a Sikh temple that I have not even wanted to look at the details of. As for the New York cop connection for a Colorado shooting, I think Gotham City is pretty much New York. Part of me feels, edging out on that limb of what seems feasible,… Read more »
The smoking gun for me, well next to them seeing their death before it happened, was the killers hair being orange. May sound like a week argument but think, if someone was so drawn to being a character and was willing to change their apperance for it, why not follow everything to a tee? I was wondering from the start, Why was his hair orange not green? The jokers signature color no where to be found. Its simple now, he wasnt programmed to be the joker, he was programmed to be the movie theater killer in the comics. A two in one if you will, the comic guy was inspired by batman so in the real world he was too, this time just the movie. I dont know if the guy in the comics loved the joker but if not I imagen the real killer was programmed to believe the… Read more »
I think there are so many levels of intricate connection that one can see upon further evaluation. VC always gives a thorough analysis and brings up such great points. I was interested in the overlying connections to Warner Bros. (if you have any knowledge of the TPTB in the film/ent industry and their occult ties). Batman is a staple of DC Comics which is owned by Warner. DC has had headquarters at Rockefeller Center and 666 Fifth Ave in NYC. I know others have mentioned the importance of numbers in among illuminists. The DC logo has a five-pointed star as well. Now I am not drawing conclusion just yet, but I am just throwing out some symbolism I found interesting. Also, someone earlier drew the parallel of the Joker to Christ or the duality of the Joker including an aspect which can be likened to Dionysus which extrapolated to Christ… Read more »

interesting take on mind control drugs & the batman shooting here :


Hmm, interesting. They say he also received a phone call right before the shooting. If you ever seen the film with Denzel Washington "The Manchurian Candidate" the triggers to get them to switch into zombie mode are a phone call with a person mentioning their full name including middle names….

In any case concerning the drug, it is also said he had just took 100 mg of vicodin. I find that strange cause that contains an opiate. And if you ever seen someone on opiates the last thing on earth they would ever do is get violent. Opiates make you reclusive, passive and pretty much lethargic. So your scopolamine theory does add up.

Im afraid the truth will never come out considering corporate mass media rules the land and people believe what ever they are told.

Colorado Springs is the home of the USAF academy, the Underground / Under mountain Cheyenne Mountain nuclear war command post and a major intelligence gathering site for the newly established Northern Command. The National Homeland Defense Foundation in Colorado Springs brings together among others the "agency" and the head of the Chamber of Commerce of the city.

Ahh, may the real Creator in all save us from the religiously programmed/marinated ones who are so easy to manipulate that they believe the mass media propaganda. They are so unconscious that they unwittingly partake in these rituals themselves. That is the real tragedy above all!
