Posting at Reddit’s “Conspiracy” forum can be a daunting and tough proposition. Subject matter involving miraculous recoveries from magical bullets is certainly no exception. The post in question is here, and you can see that it was 52% upvoted. There were 4,400 views and 195 comments. The comments were heated on both sides. They provide some insight into the psychology of those looking into the topic.
There is a factor in these posts that I call “boiler-room boyz” that to me seem more organized and directed. I was the OP (original post) and you can see an attempt to distract and personalize this and make it about me rather than focus on the injuries and the video clip of the recovery.
These kind of same-script comments are not well received at r/Conspiracy but still in aggregate have some effect in demonizing the skeptic “conspiracy theorists.” The message to the normie is “don’t dare look critically into this or you are an epic dick.” But there is also some blow back against this tactic, which is encouraging. That probably explains why the Crime Syndicate has turned to shutting ‘er down. Notice a fairly tight time pattern to this boiler-room script.

On my end, I made a tactical error and was baited into posting this in response. If you engage in these conversations (and you should), my advice is to try to refrain from such remarks as it is not well received even by those who agree.
If you believe this nonsense you are a threat to humanity. Do mankind a favor and just not get up in the morning.
The majority of the participants seem legit and are considering the evidence. A number of commenters are quite perplexed as to how one Maddy Wilford emerged 12 days later to sit and walk comfortably into and out of a press conference.
The Injuries Sustained
For more background on AR-15 bullet wounds, see this Atlantic article from a radiologist who is alleged to have examined the injuries. In a nutshell, he says these are not survivable wounds. A layman looking over the ballistic test below could just as easily assume the same thing. Several more dishonest wags in comments claimed AR-15 bullets are like “pencils”. This most certainly is not the case internally inside the body.
CNN reported some details on the alleged three bullet wounds.
When she arrived, she was “pale and not responsive. She was in shock,” he said. He could see that she had “multiple gunshot wounds” to her chest, abdomen and upper sternum.
“Wounds in the chest were very severe, with massive bleeding,” Nichiporenko said. Emergency staff gave her blood, and when they found fluid in her abdomen, she was taken to the operating room within 10 minutes.
Nichiporenko had to perform “damage control,” amounting to extricating bullets and repairing damage, first in Wilford’s abdomen and then her chest and in the right upper extremity, where tendons had been “shattered from gunshot wounds.” “She still has fragments inside.”
The NY Post gave more details. Here the claim is that the liver was missed. Given the liver’s size, location relative to the broken rib cage, the downward trajectory described as starting from piercing the right lung, and the blowing-out affect of an AR-15 round, inquiring minds would like to ask how this is even possible?
Regardless, clearly she sustained very severe injuries and our skepticism is primarily with her unaffected appearance and mobility in the press conference only 12 days later.
One of the bullets traveled though Maddy’s back — crushing her ribs, piercing her right lung and exiting through her stomach, Wilford wrote. Several others went through her shoulder and traveled the length of her right arm before exiting. Her liver, reproductive organs and heart were miraculously not affected. The teen underwent surgery Thursday to “put in titanium plates to hold the ribs together,” her mother wrote.
President Trump visited her at the hospital “2 days after the “shooting” and she was sitting up smiling and talking with no oxygen, no tubes or EKG machine — absolutely nothing.
So 12 days after receiving her three AR-15 bullet wounds, Ms. Wilford strolls into a press conference. Go to minute 19:30 and make sure to watch to the finish as she gets up and walks out.
Next is Angel Colon from the Orlando Pulse. Fox News describes the particulars: Mr. Colon was shot “several times” in the legs, once in the hand, and once in the hip. He was rolled out for a press conference two days later, as shown below. Notice that when a reporter asks “if anyone rememebrs treating Angel” draws a blank expression from those in the room, until one comes to the rescue with a contrived performance.
Several wags in the comments claim “young people can really bounce back” from lethal injuries. The problem with this argument is that this is far from the only case of magical bullets in these events. Apparently older people can be just as unaffected. Even acknowledging that a miracle can with great rarity happen, the script in these events has them happening with frequency.
For example, Vicki Gardner is the Chamber of Commerce lady who was shot in the back with a hollow-point bullet in the August 26, 2015 Roanoke “shooting.” Gardner’s husband, Tim, told the Associated Press that during surgery and while in a medically induced coma, doctors had to remove her damaged kidney and part of her colon.
A mere week later, this robust 62-year-old woman shows up for a Fox News interview with Greta and appears no worse for the wear. At minute 9:55 in the video below, she looks tan with a great complexion, a good range of motion and nicely trimmed down. Par for the course, Gardner gets off her script in the interview, providing details that don’t combine with others’ accounts, which is noted in our linked article.
Yet another miracle recovery from AR-15 .223 bullet to heart aorta- this time in Las Vegas. Photo of “victim” is from Las Vegas Review-Journal. Once again refer to ballistic test to gauge the devastating nature of this round on the human body.
Here we have one Braden Matejka. Shot in the head, Braden informs us that he has brain bleeding, brain swelling, fluid in the brain cavity, blurred sight and is cross-eyed. He still was able to put up his charity page 26 hours later and take this photo. His face exhibits no signs of trauma, swelling, or blackened eyes. Nor is he even crossed-eyed as he claims. He doesn’t look to be in the slightest discomfort. He was also kind enough to provide us with a photo of what bullet entrance and exit wounds into the head are supposed to look like.
Magical bullets occur with enough frequency in staged events to be considered part of the lore. Indeed, a couple notable magical bullet incidents stood out from the Las Vegas event. Yes, we have all seen the absurd images of Jesus Campos walking onto the “Ellen” show two weeks after taking an AR round in the leg and looking 35 pounds heavier. But what about this actor climbing out of his hospital bed to greet President Trump days after being shot through the leg. Notice the WTF look on Melania Trump’s face. She’s probably not in on it.
TNN Takeaway: The operators are pushing the outer limits and twilight zone of gullible, deceitful brainwashing and black magic.
