Colorado shooting suspect charged with first-degree murder
Proof that TB Joshua DID NOT predict the Colorado shooting
July 22, 2012Yesterday we posted about TB Joshua’s supposed prediction of the Colorado shootings. We also pointed to a news article which suggested the prophecy originally said the shooting would take place on a military base and the shooter would be a soldier. These details were edited out of the Colorado prophecy video, presumably because they did not fit with the actual event (in a cinema, by a student).
Today, someone unconnected with TB Joshua Watch uploaded a video to youtube showing the original prophecy and the edited one. Not surprisingly, it clearly shows that the prophecy did contain details that failed to come true so were edited out. This leaves us with an exceptionally underwhelming prophecy: A gunman in America will kill several people before being arrested. No date, no location, no description of the perpetrator. Absolutely nothing that could serve any purpose other than inflating his ego and increasing his fame. Unfortunately for him, after the Indonesia prophecy and now this one, the truth is well and truly out. You cannot trust anything released by Emmanuel TV, they heavily edit what they produce to suit their purposes. In our mind this is clear evidence that TB Joshua is no prophet, he’s a simple fraudster with a big TV audience – but watch the video evidence below and discern for yourself.
TB Joshua: I haven’t said anything on death of Ghana president, but I will this Sunday
July 27, 2012
The story, which originated from Nigeria’s Abuja based Leadership Newspapers and was subsequently re-posted throughout media houses and internet news sites in Ghana and across Africa, claimed Joshua had said he did not foresee the death of Mills and was distraught at the news of his unexpected demise.
“He was a very dear son to me and I was his spiritual godfather,” the article quoted Joshua, who was reportedly close to Mills during his presidency, as saying. “His death is a great shock and blow to me personally… I was so hopeful he would recover his health completely, but it is sad and only God knows best why he should die now.”
The purported interview proceeded with quoting Joshua as explaining, “I know many persons will be saying how come my fervent prayers did not save his life. All I can answer such persons is, why did God allow Stephen in the New Testament Bible to be stoned to death. Why did God not save the life of Stephen, an innocent man, as he was being stoned, dying? The answer is simply this: sometimes God allows things to happen for unknown reasons, and indeed reasons no man can explain, that is why God is Almighty Sovereign God; who indeed can question Him, who can challenge God?”
Social networks had been awash with speculation since Mill’s death that Joshua would come out in public to claim he predicted the tragic incident, especially considering the proximity of their relationship and his reputation for accurate predictions. It was widely reported that after Mill’s ascension to office in 2008, he visited The SCOAN and publicly acknowledged Joshua’s prophetic insight in his three-round election victory. Joshua also garnered significant media attention in April following the fulfillment of his prediction relating to the death of former Malawian President Bingu wa Mutharika.
Joshua came forward via his Facebook account, ‘TB Joshua Ministries’, followed by close to 250,000 people, to deny that the interview ever occurred. “The interview in LEADERSHIP NEWSPAPER of Thursday 26/7/2012 titled “I Did Not Foresee Atta Mills’ Death – T.B. Joshua” does not represent me, T.B. Joshua, because I was not around and I never spoke with anyone,” his statement read. “People say all sorts of things against me but God says ‘Touch not my anointed and do him no harm’. Why should anybody write this – as if you will not die one day?”
He then further stated that, God permitting, he would talk to the public concerning Atta Mill’s death this Sunday via his Christian television station Emmanuel TV, which is extremely popular and viewed daily by millions, especially within Africa.
“This is the first time I am talking to the public after the demise of our late president,” Joshua said. “I will talk as God instructs me on Sunday Live service on Emmanuel TV.”
He called on all those who had lifted the supposed interview from Leadership Newspapers to immediately retract the information. “Those that may have copied the false story from LEADERSHIP NEWSPAPER should remove it from their sites because this does not represent me. It is not from me.”
The statement was met with anger from supporters of Joshua, directed towards Leadership Newspapers from which the purported interview originated, many perceiving it as a distasteful and dishonest attempt to gain more readers. When this reporter attempted to contact Leadership by email to address the allegations, no response was given.
Colorado shooting suspect charged with first-degree murderCENTENNIAL, Colo. |
(Reuters) - The former graduate student accused of opening fire at a midnight screening of the new "Batman" film in Colorado, killing 12 people, was charged on Monday with 24 counts of first-degree murder, making him eligible for the death penalty if convicted.
James Holmes, who was arrested behind a suburban Denver multiplex minutes after the July 20 shooting at a packed showing of "The Dark Knight Rises," also faces 116 counts of attempted murder in one of the worst outbursts of U.S. gun violence in recent years. Fifty-eight people were wounded in the attack, some of whom remain in critical condition.
Prosecutors have said a decision could be months away on whether to seek the death penalty against Holmes, 24, who made his second court appearance on Monday. Colorado has three men on its death row and but has not executed a condemned inmate since 1976.
Arapahoe County District Attorney Carol Chambers' office charged Holmes with two counts for each victim - one for carrying out the crime "after deliberation" and the second for "malice manifesting extreme indifference to human life."
Holmes, who authorities say styled himself after Batman's comic-book nemesis "the Joker," appeared in court clad in jail garb, his hair still dyed bright orange but with the color fading to pink in places.
He sat impassively at a table with two defense lawyers through the 45-minute hearing but seemed more alert than during his initial court appearance a week ago, when he looked dazed and groggy.
The former neuroscience student spoke only once, quietly answering, "Yes," in response to a question from Arapahoe County District Judge William Sylvester. He mostly kept his gaze lowered and did not look at a courtroom gallery packed with members of the media and victims' family members.
The judge set a pre-trial hearing for September 27, tentatively scheduling a preliminary hearing for the week of November 13.
Police say Holmes entered Theater 9 at the Century 16 multiplex in the Denver suburb of Aurora wearing tactical body armor and a gas mask and tossed smoke bombs before spraying moviegoers with bullets from three guns.
Authorities who rushed to his apartment following the movie house massacre said they found it wired with enough explosives to bring down the three-story building, and spent several days dismantling the booby traps. Holmes was also charged on Monday with possessing an explosive device.
Pregnant survivor Ashley Moser suffered a miscarriage following the shooting, but the loss of her fetus did not alter the number of murder charges because the unborn cannot be counted as homicide victims under Colorado law .
Moser, 25, was left paralyzed from the waist down from her own bullet wounds. Her daughter, 6-year-old Veronica Moser-Sullivan, was the youngest of those who died in the shooting.
Moser's aunt, MaryEllen Hansen, said after Monday's hearing that she found Holmes a "diabolical, evil presence."
"But he looked very sane to me, he really did. His reaction looked different," she said. "When we've seen him before, he looked like he was kind of spaced out or out of touch. But he seemed very, very alert today and very lucid as to what was going on."
Prosecutors, who are under a protective or "gag" order imposed in the case by the judge, declined to explain their decision to file the double charges, but it appeared to be a strategy to offer jurors more than one path to a guilty verdict.
During the hearing, defense attorney Tamara Brady asked that prosecutors turn over evidence collected in the case. The defense is seeking a package that news reports have said was sent by Holmes to a University of Colorado psychiatrist, Dr. Lynne Fenton.
Prosecutors responded that they had not yet opened that parcel, which according to Fox News contained a notebook outlining his plans for the shooting, including stick-figure drawings.
Holmes, a San Diego native, was a doctoral student of neuroscience at the university's Anschutz campus before turning in paperwork to drop out in June. Court documents filed on Friday by defense lawyers said he had been under Fenton's care.
Police have not offered a motive for the shooting rampage that stunned Aurora and evoked memories of the 1999 massacre at Columbine High School less than 20 miles away in Littleton.
Authorities have said that following his arrest, Holmes called himself "the Joker" and experts say his mental state could play an important role in the case.
The judge set an August 9 date to consider requests from attorneys representing news organizations to unseal court records and investigative documents. He added he would hold a hearing on August 16 to determine what evidence should be considered protected between Holmes and his psychiatrist.
"The guy's a coward and he looked defeated because he knows he's not the one with the power any more, we are," said U.S. Marine Donald Lader, who was in Theater 9 at the time of the shooting but escaped injury.
Police said Holmes was armed on the night of the shooting with a Smith & Wesson M&P .223 semi-automatic rifle, similar to an AR-15 assault rifle; a 12-gauge shotgun and a Glock .40-caliber handgun, according to police.
An additional Glock .40-caliber handgun was found in his car. All the weapons had been bought legally in the previous 60 days.
