I posted the following graphic on Twitter early on the morning of June 28, 2018.
At least five people were killed and three injured in an "active shooting incident" at the Capital Gazette building in Annapolis. One suspect (white, 20s, with a ponytail, drab green teeshirt, and black pants, no ID) is in custody. (More on his identity below.) He reportedly used a shotgun.
Annapolis, Anne Arundel County and state police, along with officers from neighboring jurisdictions are at the scene in the 800 block of Bestgate Road, near the Annapolis Mall. The incident was reported at 888 Bestgate Road.
Four of those wounded suffered critical injuries. Two state police helicopters have been called the scene, and a triage has been set up, SkyTeam 11 Capt. Roy Taylor reports.
Suspicious packages were reported. SWAT officers will conduct a room-by-room search.
The Capital Gazette is owned by The Baltimore Sun. That paper reports police were at their building, as well.
The Capital is a daily newspaper published in Annapolis, Maryland since 1884. Its sister newspaper, The Gazette, is one of the oldest newspapers in America, its origins dating back to the early 18th century. The Capital serves the city of Annapolis, much of Anne Arundel County, and neighboring Kent Island in Queen Anne's County. An evening newspaper for most of its existence, it moved to mornings beginning on March 9, 2015.
The Capital, the Maryland Gazette and their sister publications have been composed and printed for more than 270 years in numerous locations in and near Annapolis.
The company has moved headquarters seven times, including from 3 Church Circle to 213 West St. in 1948, to 2000 Capital Drive in 1987, to Gibralter Road after that, and to 888 Bestgate Road in 2014.
In a new posting, "Opening the Beast Gate," on the Super Torch Ritual, Goro Adachi points to this incident being a "clear 'signal events' – events encoded with patterns that give us various levels of insights into what’s going on in our reality, past, present, and future. And we got something about the near future in this one."
Goro notes it is an "an in-your-face, 'look at me!' sync in the form of '888' accompanying the event, we have something here practically begging to be decoded."
It’s not just “888”. The whole street address is highly suggestive: “888 Bestgate Road”. The surname “Best” means “beast”, hence we have here… a “Beast Gate”! A darker version of our “Stargate”.Go here for the surrounding context in which Gore Adachi places this.
The Biblical overtones increase with the Christian interpretation of the numerical symbolism of “888” – Jesus. From Wikipedia:
In Christian numerology, the number 888 represents Jesus, or sometimes more specifically Christ the Redeemer. This representation may be justified either through gematria, by counting the letter values of the Greek transliteration of Jesus’ name, or as an opposing value to 666, the number of the beast.Wow. So 888 = Jesus = opposite of the number of Beast. This means…
“888 Beast Gate” = “Jesus Beast Gate” = “888 666 Gate”
Looking at 666, it should be pointed out again, that Jared Kurshner owns the high profile building - 666 Fifth Avenue in New York City.
Dr. Joseph Warren (June 11, 1741 – June 17, 1775) was an American physician who played a leading role in American Patriot organizations in Boston in the early days of the American Revolution, eventually serving as President of the revolutionary Massachusetts Provincial Congress. Warren enlisted Paul Revere and William Dawes on April 18, 1775, to leave Boston and spread the alarm that the British garrison in Boston was setting out to raid the town of Concord and arrest rebel leaders John Hancock and Samuel Adams. Warren participated in the next day's Battles of Lexington and Concord, which are commonly considered to be the opening engagements of the American Revolutionary War.
Warren had been commissioned a Major General in the colony's militia shortly before the June 17, 1775 Battle of Bunker Hill. Rather than exercising his rank, Warren served in the battle as a private soldier, and was killed in combat when British troops stormed the redoubt atop Breed's Hill. His death, immortalized in John Trumbull's painting, The Death of General Warren at the Battle of Bunker's Hill, June 17, 1775, galvanized the rebel forces. He has been memorialized in the naming of many towns, counties and other locations in the United States, by statues, and in numerous other ways (emphasis added). Source.
