Obama staged it to place police in schools.
That's more than Hitler accomplished as a police state leader.

Guns are also phallic symbols. Obama being gay, he knows
to just make others need that.

The reason the Japanese are building fallout shelters near
nuclear reactors is they fear the U.S. will induce another
tsunami unless they wage a proxy war with China.

"Obama staged it to place police in schools."

While there's not enough evidence to compel such an inference, the official version of events at Sandy Hook has been an incoherent farce. The sheer number of fundamental questions that have gone unanswered is breathtaking. In fact, the outright ineptitude and dishonesty of both the public officials involved and the media that's supposed to cover them is so astounding that now both are part of the tragedy. And yet the hysterical campaign to cut back on 2nd amendment protection proceeds unimpeded by any meaningful consideration of the hard evidence.

Fortunately for anyone interested in the truth about what happened, a lot of the contemporaneous evidence (e.g., live helicopter shots, police scanner audio feed, media stories as they broke) has been preserved and is available online, as are analyses of these sources. A couple of solid just-the-facts discussions, which avoid sensational but irrelevant coincidences, can be found here:

Obama took a richly-deserved ass-kicking in the Sandy Hook edition of Let's Eviscerate the Second Amendment. Yesterday's executive order was watered down more than mixed drinks in a grimy London tit bar.

For a sense of what Obama really wanted, consider this propaganda point as presented on the Katie Couric show through the alleged father of an alleged Sandy Hook victim. Note the device used to presenti this anti-2nd amendment talking point: a letter that just happened to have been sent to Obama BY A FIRST GRADER before she was gunned down:

"My daughter Natalie was interested him in asking him if he could pass some kind of legislation so that the only people that had guns were military personnel and law enforcement, and that if people needed guns for sport that they could go to a range and the guns would have to stay there."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LypG2ACkyQE (at 0:50)

As ludicrous as that set-up is, the media--now completely out of touch with reality--actually pushed it further. Little Natalie's legal brief, er, letter, ends up in the hands of Anderson Cooper, who proceeds to read it and show it on air to CNN's mouth-breathing audience (4:25 in the same video).

This sustained propaganda effort ended with a carton of egg yolk on Obama's face yesterday, even as he pitifully continued to surround himself with children. ("We have to do it for the children, for the children, for the children." Yak.)

One can only wonder what these evil idiots will come up with next...

Why does Obama want to take away Americans guns while giving automatic weapons to Mexican drug gangs? Something very wrong here.

An interesting anomaly ...

According to a report at nbcnews.com Adam Lanza, who murdered twenty children and six adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School yesterday, had tried to buy a rifle at a Dick’s Sporting Good store on Tuesday. “Adam Lanza, 20, went to a Dick’s Sporting Goods store in Danbury, Conn., on Tuesday to buy the weapon, but was turned down because he didn’t want to undergo a background check or abide by the state’s waiting period for gun sales, the officials said.”

So if Adam had access to a bush master and several 9mm pistols then why is he attempting to buy a long gun (bush master?) three days prior to shooting spree?

I believe those on this site realize the Machiavellian government we share. This is long but, many facts about Sandy Hook are not alike. The police said the Bushmaster was in the trunk. Coroner says the Bushmaster shot all the kids. If you have 30 min to invest this is pretty shocking.

Now my question is, when did the NYPD get permission to open offices in 11 different countries and was there a deal struck with regard to the president's executive order allowing/giving Mike Bloomberg and the NYPD authority to operate OUTSIDE of it's jurisdiction as a quid pro quo deal with interpol et.al.?

This video came out yesterday and is hands-down the most cohesive blow-by-blow account, beginning with the live police audio feed, of Sandy Hook yet. It lays waste to the lone gunman theory and demonstrates massive ms-reporting of information--particularly concerning Adam Lanza--by the media.

Bone-chilling stuff...

That video's approach to the evidence, while certainly interesting, isn't really my cup of tea. It weighs the credibiliity of things like whether a witness's on-camera performance was compelling or whether it was an acting job. It also puts forth collateral issues like memorial fund websites and posits that they were created before the date of the massacre based on url's and internet timestamps--matters that I don't feel confident assessing.

I'm boring and traditional and prefer who, what, where, when, why, how--more definitive details that when assembled and sorted permits hard conclusions to be drawn.

In any event, the makers of that video released a sequel a few hours ago:

Aside from the tragedy itself, Sandy Hook interests me for 2 other reasons as well.

First, the reporters and officials involved in the case, particularly in the first 3 days, repeatedly fucked up the most fundamental issues in the case, reversing themselves left and right with abandon: who shot the kids? what weapon was used? why did the primary suspect change? why was the suspects' mother falsely reported to have been employed at the school? why was an altercation fabricated immediately upon confirmation that the suspects' mother was NOT employed at the school? why were mulitiple other suspects identified and then ignored? why were false media stories scrubbed so quickly from the internet? why are there no security camera stills a la Columbine? why is there no evidence whatsoever of an evacuation of 500+ students? why is there no evidence whatsoever that Lanza was even at Sandy Hook Elem., ever, or even alive at all for the last 3 years? And why, amid this shameful parade of ineptitude, did police threaten alternative media sources?

I've seen dysentery-ridden smack-addicted infants who've present themselves more decorously than the so-called professionals did those first couple of days. So what the hell was going on?

Well, having parsed through a lot of videos, and every piece of primary evidence I could find (mainly live helicopter shots and scanner audio feeds), I believe what happened is that at least 2 professional killers were involved, and that things went absolutely haywire when the local police arrived at the scene WAY earlier than the slaughter plan said they would. Thus I wonder how many more people would be dead had fate--or the fast thinking of a local or 2--not interfered with evil that day; but those are educated guesses.

Of one thing I am absolutely 100% certain, however: an autistic kid named Adam Lanza did not fire a gun that left 27 dead and 1-2 injured in the space of a few minutes. There is no way in the fucking world that actually happened. I base that conclusion on a Bayesian view of events, as in Bayes' Theorem.

Seeing someone pluck a penny from a jar and toss it 27 times in a row heads is shocking and will undoubtedly cause one to ask how long the odds of that outcome are, and indeed they're miniscule. But that question gets thrown out the window the minute we learn that there was a 2-headed penny in the jar to begin with. And that's exactly what we learned at Sandy Hook that not one and not two but as many as four unnamed other suspects were involved.

The second thing that interests me is that citizen journalists are kicking the ever-living dogshit of the media over its ridiculously indefensible version of events, and they are banding together in this effort. I have never seen pissed off veterans and gun-toting feminists and Christian rockers and I don't know what else come together like this before. And one amusing sideshow on top of this excellent issue is the emotional ferocity with which the TV watchers of the world defend the utterly preposterous narrative that they've been fed. They react like narcotics addicts whose supply is threatened.

Whether I'm correct in perceiving this as a tipping point in the media's choke hold I don't know. But Sandy Hook is a much bigger event in U.S. history than it's being given credit for, and that's due soley to the efforts of people who sure are acting like they're drawing their last breaths.

Cheyenne and others. I agree that there should be some footage of the entrance to the school. Also, at the schools that my children go to there are just a myriad of cameras that are stationed all over the campus and I would suspect Conn. schools would be set up the same way. There are literally cameras posted at each corner of the school building, inside the school house all along the hallways. I believe that there are no corners left uncovered within and outside the school building. I am certain that if you looked at pictures of the building at Sandy Hook that you would see cameras everywhere. There would have to be some sort of recording of this episode located in house.

Texas Shooting May Add Fuel to Debate Over Gun Controls


Earlier today.
Jan 23, 2013 at 1:54 AM | Registered CommenterDailyBail
Yesterday, Glenn Beck the fraud did a show with someone from a website called theblaze.com in which they purported to debunk the Sandy Hook "conspiracy theorists."

If the comments on that website are any indication, Beck's cherry-picking attack on the so-called conspiracy "theorists" alienated a very solid marjority of his audience.

In general, the commenters bitterly resent Beck's ad hominem attacks on them for merely asking questions about the official narrative of the Sandy Hook massacre (which indeed has been such a nose of wax that it raises about 100 times as many questions as it answers). The article and the comments are here:

Jan 24, 2013 at 11:20 AM | Unregistered CommenterCheyenne
While there are a great many videos and blog posts about Sandy Hook, far too many of them get swept away in matters that can't be verified or refuted one way or the other (e.g., whether actors were involved) or persist with theories that have been proven false (e.g., that no one died; the scanner feed includes a finding of 18 bodies in the closet of the school kitchen).

There are exceptions. The best one I've found thus far is this blog:


If you click on it, the photo of the Sandy Hook map from the Batman movie might shoo you away. (If that had been the 1st thing I'd seen, I probably would have fled too; however, a google search led me to an earlier entry.) Don't let it. Even on something as crazy-sounding as the alleged Batman link, the writer (a woman in her 50s or 60s) has done her research and presents some rather chilling facts:

"Quite curiously, the Prop Master of the Batman Rises movie, Scott Getzinger, 46 years old, died in April of 2012. He was in a car accident and was taken to the hospital with a few broken bones. His injuries were said to be non life threatening. He never checked out of the hospital.

"Stranger still, he lived in Newtown, CT. He and his wife were having major issues with the Newtown school board pertaining to issues surrounding one of their three young children. Being Prop Master, Scott would have had control of the Gotham City map. It is just one more bizarre feature of this extremely bizarre case."

Fwiw, the writer's responses to comments on various blog entries demonstrate a level-headed personality and an extremely sharp mind that sticks to the facts.

I want to thank you for defending my level head and sharp mind in spite of my "Mad Men at Work:" article dealing with the Dark Knight Rises map. My question to you would be if the rest of the material having to do with Sandy Hook seems well researched and solid to you, why would you dismiss that one? Of all the articles, that one is one of the most logical and buttoned down.

Regarding so much of the other material on Sandy Hook that we find out there, I do wish that the bloggers and YouTubers hadn't gone for all the bait. About the Dark Knight Rises map, which I will concede as probable chum, that's some bait that I just couldn't resist. It could be another sideshow, but the way it bent to logic scares me. As pure chum, it shouldn't have. Did you happen to read my analysis of the map? Anyway, thank you again. You were being chivalrous. And I thank you most sincerely for recommending my content. I hope you will drop by again and read my "Men Who Killed Kennedy" series. Regards

"why would you dismiss that one?"

I didn't dismiss it. On the contrary, I quoted it at length. My point was simply that the Batman angle, bearing as it does all the indicia of a bait issue, as you succinctly put it, might scare readers of a financial blog ike this one away from the outstanding work on your blog.

To elaborate a bit, the events of 2008 caused a lot of very smart people with "traditional" backgrounds (mostly financial, legal to a lesser degree) to seriously dig, for the first time, far beneath the surface of mainstream media to see who and what is calling the shots in Washington, D.C.

The financial calisthenics of 2008 were a significant portal to a rabbit hole that is very very deep. And yet, despite the passage of 4+ years, most financial and legal types still veer away from events that tell us a lot more about what's going on behind the scenes, as it were. I'm not sure what lies at the root of this aversion: lack of expertise in non-financial matters, the desire to live up to a reputation as someone who is "serious," fear of discovering what is really going on, etc. In any event, there is for the most part an entire class of people, in my opinion, who are overlooking the rather rich wellspring of information that Sandy Hook provides.

There are some rather fascinating cases of immunity to this aversion flu of which I speak, however. Three that come to mind are Catherine Austin Fitts (asst. sec'y of HUD under Bush41, Paul Craig Roberts (asst. sec'y of treasury under Reagan1), and Eric deCarbonnel (the great grandson of Frank Vanderlip).

To circle back to your question, I have read nearly every post on your blog, including the outstanding Kennedy series. The George Arnold video is a stunner. The ruthless efficiency and brevity of your posts is most commendable.

You might want to check out what Mr. deCarbonnel had to say about the Kennedys. You can find this starting at the 12:00 mark in this video (though the content from 11:30 might be a better starting point):
