Yesterday (July 24, 2015) about noon eastern, I received call from my son who is currently down in Plant City, Florida. He called to let me know that his roommate, who is his former sergeant in the Army and is now a Army recruiter in the area had sent him a text that he was ordered to leave his office. I will include that text below. I asked why, and he read me the text that states, “FYI we have to buy bullets. Somebody call or(our) Battalion to threat to shoot the recruiting offices in Tampa we were ordered to leave the Office” I thought this was pretty big news and asked my son if had had anymore information, which he did not.
Upon finishing my call, I sent out a Tweet through my Twitter account (@jeffhanson9) stating, “All recruitment centers in the Tampa area have been ordered to evacuate due to threats that there will be shootings. Info from a recruiter” I thought about it for a while, and I didn’t have that many followers, so I decided to forward the tweet to Joe Biggs (@rambobiggs) and to @infowars. From that point, the next 2 hours were crazy. Joe Biggs and I began tweeting back and forth. He was trying to get more information from me, and I was busy trying to get more information from my son’s friend. I tried to get to talk to the recruiter, but was told that he would not be allowed to, which is understandable. When I finally got back to Joe Biggs about not being able to talk to him, he said, “that’s fine. Report is about to go live” This is the video that he did.
From that point on, things got crazy. First off, I am truly appreciate of the fact that Joe Biggs called me, “a friend in Georgia” My Twitter account blew up since in the video it clearly shows my Twitter account. I was constantly getting messages, retweets and favorites. People wanted to know if I had more information, and I had to let them know that just about everything I knew was on the video. I called my wife and had her login to YouTube and watch the above video while I was on the phone with her. I wanted to hear her reaction. It was pretty cool actually. During this time, I was not able to listen to the Alex Jones Show live since I was on the phone. After getting off the phone, I was finally able to get back to the radio show. I was only back on for a couple of minutes when Alex bought up the article and video that Joe had put out. I was amazed. Alex Jones said my name, live on air.
Here is that clip:
Later on in the show, Joe Biggs, along with Alex Jones did an update to the story, and here is that clip:
One more time that night on the Infowars Nightly News, LeeAnn McAdoo also talked about the report and also added a clip about the attempt to take away our guns. I’ve always loved this clip she added:
All in all, it was a very crazy day for me. I was so overwhelmed at the end of the day, I had to put my devices away about 10:30 pm. And that includes not playing Words with Friends haha. I gained about 30 new followers on my Twitter account, and I had several people, including private security people, reporters, other recruiters, and other people asking me so many questions, it was hard to keep up with. And keep in mind, I work a retail sales job, and I still had to try and work through all of this. It was not easy, trust me.
I hope this story will encourage other, “citizen journalists” out there, that yes, you can make a difference. It only takes one person to start it. As one person told me, “You probably saved lives today.” I first met Joe Biggs last Saturday and he has inspired me to get out there and do more. I know I have the ability and the strength to do it. I don’t have great video/audio equipment except for my iPhone, but that’s all I need I figure. I plan on attending the funeral services for Lance Corporal Skip Wells over in Woodstock Georgia tomorrow afternoon and “cover” that for Infowars. Am I trying to get a job with them? Not really. Not my intended goal. Granted I would not refuse if I were offered a position. That would be a dream come true. I have no real journalistic training, my writing skill are not great, BUT I do have a passion for Liberty, Freedom, Justice and Truth. And that my friends, it what the Infowar is all about. If you do not follow, or have never been to Infowars.com or listened to the Alex Jones radio show, I HIGHLY encourage it. No bs, just facts. The truth the mainstream media will not talk about.
