Police confirm that there are no links between Florida shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz and the Republic of Florida, the white supremacist organization that the media has been claiming Cruz belonged to.
The Anti-Defamation League kicked off the media narrative by reporting the claims of Jordan Jereb, Republic of Florida leader, who said that Cruz was part of his group and trained with white supremacist militants.
This claim was parroted widely in the mainstream media, with outlets including TIME, Newsweek, and The Daily Beast reporting on the Anti-Defamation League’s theory.
However, police ended the media speculation Thursday evening.
The Leon County Sheriff’s Office said that “We are still doing some work but we have no known ties between the ROF, Jordan Jereb or the Broward shooter.”
The Associated Press also reported that law enforcement interviewed Jereb and found “no known ties” between Cruz and the secessionist organization.
Jordan Jereb, the leader of the Republic of Florida, confirmed in a series of Gab messages that Cruz was not actually part of his group as he had claimed. It remains unclear whether Jereb was being dishonest or whether he mistakenly identified Cruz as a member of the group, but the fact remains that Cruz never belonged to the organization.

Big League Politics reported critically on the mainstream media’s narrative earlier Thursday, based on a Berkeley-educated Forbes reporter’s claim that Jereb is not a trustworthy source, and based on statements from others that Jereb is not to be trusted on such matters.
The falsity of the white supremacist claim casts doubt on the three “unnamed former schoolmates” of Cruz who told ABC News that Cruz was a member of the group, marched with the group, and was close with Jordan Jereb.
Three unnamed former schoolmates of Cruz have been routinely cited in mainstream news coverage of the shooting to detail Cruz’s past disciplinary incidents in the school system.
The first unnamed former classmate of Cruz to speak to the media — who said that he went to alternative school with Cruz after Cruz was kicked out of high school — claimed that Cruz was fond of guns and that he knew the layout of the high school and what to do in a “fire drill” situation. A fire drill occurred at the school earlier in the day, and students and parents also said that they expected another drill — possibly an active shooter drill — at the school that same day. CBS 4 in Miami, which broadcast the former classmate’s claims, did not provide the former classmate’s name.
Cruz was expelled from the school. Law enforcement reportedly arrested him right outside a house near the high school campus, and sources say Cruz might have escaped the school after the shooting by blending in with fellow students.
Cruz’s mother is reportedly dead and he was living with a friend’s family.
Daughter of Man Involved in Fatal 1972 Biden Car Crash Accuses Joe Biden of Falsely Accusing Dad of Driving Drunk
She says he wasn’t a drunk driver. And he was never charged.
The daughter of a man who was involved in a 1972 car crash that resulted in the deaths of Joe Biden’s then-wife, Neilia, and the couple’s one-year old daughter, Naomi, is accusing Joe Biden of falsely blaming her father for the tragic incident.
Deborah Criddle, the daughter of Curtis Dunn, is calling on Joe Biden to “set the record straight” on several claims he’s made in previous years, in which Biden suggested Curtis Dunn was intoxicated or an alcoholic when speaking about the crash. Dunn was never charged or convicted of any traffic or DUI violations stemming from the incident.
Criddle brought up Biden’s accusations towards Dunn in remarks provided to The Sun newspaper on Wednesday.
Criddle says that she became motivated to speak out on Biden’s claims after he repeatedly called Donald Trump a liar during the first presidential debate. She calls such a description as the “pot calling the kettle black,” and that “Biden has got a lot of nerve calling Trump a liar.”
Criddle has spoken out before, in 2008, when Biden made the latest of several inferences suggesting Curtis Dunn was drunk during the crash.
“A tractor-trailer, a guy who allegedly – and I never pursued it – drank his lunch instead of eating his lunch, broadsided my family and killed my wife instantly and killed my daughter instantly and hospitalized my two sons,” Biden had claimed in 2007. He previously suggested that alcohol was involved in the crash in 2001.
A Delaware Superior Court Judge, Jerome O. Herlihy- who investigated the crash at the time as a prosecutor- clarified that there was no reason to believe that any intoxication was involved in the incident when asked about the situation in 2008.
“The rumor about alcohol being involved by either party, especially the truck driver (Dunn), is incorrect,” said the judge in response to Joe Biden’s continued suggestions that Dunn was intoxicated at the time of the crash.
Police investigating the incident ultimately determined that the crash was determined by a t-bone accident in which the vehicle Neilia Biden was driving pulled into the right of way and was struck by a tractor Curtis Dunn was driving.
Criddle is describing Dunn, who died in 1999, as a loving father and family man.
The 1972 car crash was a tragedy for everyone involved, including then-Senator-elect Joe Biden, regardless of the exact circumstances. A one-year old baby and a mother of three children lost their lives. Falsely accusing a party involved of culpability- no matter how slight- without substantiation is a serious matter, one that Biden should answer to regardless of the passage of time since the incident.
