Project Longevity and the Sandy Hook Massacre

Ever heard of “Project Longevity”?

No?

Sounds like some anti-aging scientific research project on the long-sought magical elixir of life, doesn’t it?

Not so.

Project Longevity is the Orwellian name of a U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) “comprehensive initiative to reduce gun violence” — not in the cities of Chicago, Illinois; Detroit, Michigan; or Oakland, California, which are plagued with “gun violence” and high rates of shooting homicides — but in the state of Connecticut!

With a total population of 3.58 million in 2011, here are Connecticut’s crime rates for murder and violent crimes from 2000 to 2011 (Source):

CT crime rates

Does the table above look like a crime-ridden state to you? In fact, the numbers of homicides (133 to 128) and violent crimes (10,083 to 9,767) actualy went down in 2011 from a year ago!

Now compare the state of Connecticut’s murder rates with those of 7 of America’s largest cities (Source):

murder rates of large cities

As you can see, the city of Chicago, with a population that’s 89,000 fewer than that of the entire state of Connecticut, had 292 homicides (murders) in 2011 — 164 more than Connecticut.

And yet the state of Connecticut is the object of the Obama regime’s DOJ’s Project Longevity.

On November 27, 2012, Attorney General Eric Holder, U.S. Attorney David Fein and Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy joined members of law enforcement, public officials, social service providers, community leaders and researchers in New Haven, CT, to launch “Project Longevity.” The project is funded by federal, state and local sources.

This is what Eric Holder said at the launch:

“Project Longevity will send a powerful message to those who would commit violent crimes targeting their fellow citizens that such acts will not be tolerated and that help is available for all those who wish to break the cycle of violence and gang activity. Today’s announcement underscores our commitment to working together – across levels of government and jurisdictional boundaries – to protect the American people from the crime that threatens too many neighborhoods and claims far too many innocent lives.”

On December 14, 2012, 17 days after Eric Holder’s visit to New Haven to announce the launching of Project Longevity, 20 mostly white* school children and 6 adults were shot to death in a town 34 miles northeast of New Haven. The town is Newtown, CT — a peaceful prosperous town ranked the 5th safest city in America by the website NeighborhoodScout.com based on 2011 crime statistics. (* Ana Marquez-Greene, 6, is part black. Her father is black jazz musician Jimmy Greene.)

The subliminal message impressed on the American people is that if the massacre had happened to a place such as Newtown, then no one is safe from gun violence.

Ron Pinciaro, executive director of Connecticut Against Gun Violence, said in a telephone interview that “we’ve got to do something” and that the change needed was a cultural shift.

The massacre of 20  upper-middle class first-graders at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, allegedly by a disturbed lone gunman who then killed himself, would be the match that ignited a nationwide call for gun control and for a ban on assault weapons. (See Sen. Feinstein’s “assault weapons” ban bill.)

It remains unclear whether the gunman Adam Lanza actually used an assault rifle to kill the Sandy Hook 26.

  1. From an article about Project Longevity – here’s the part that stood out to me. Though nothing was, at that time, being done in terms of gun legislation, one activist talked about “public outrage” being more useful with this issue.
    “Federal help for the effort is welcome even if Obama is not making a push to change laws that make guns easily available in much of the country, said Ron Pinciaro, executive director of Connecticut Against Gun Violence.

    “The community needs to show a little more outrage on these things and demand that it be a top priority,” Pinciaro said. “That will be more useful than another law right now.”

    Sandy Hook sure provided that, didn’t it?

  2. Never let dead child go to waste… children are only worth something when they’re cute and heart-tugging tykes, gotta get some gun-grabbing mileage outta this! (LIberals suck.)

  3. How bizarre!

  4. What is their political strategy behind targeting Connecticut for this?

  5. Wow! Thank you Dr. Eowyn for revealing this interesting and noteworthy coincidence. I say that sarcastically because it is not a coincidence: and it is again noteworthy-all places-Connecticut. One must ask the question: why did they choose Connecticut? It certainly would make more sense if such a project was centered in areas with the most gun violence, but the project is not within the areas that have the most severe gun violence. It is once again, further noteworthy that in the area of the alleged massacre exists a Satanic hub. Hmmm-might that fact have something to do with their choice? We need to think of all of the variables and keep up with the questions!

    When I was 18 attending the university, I was asking questions of a certain professor, and they were not stupid questions. Other students were also asking questions. The professor then announced that he want limited questions in his class because he did not have time for questions. I stood up, gathered my books, and told the professor that if he did not have time for questions, then I did not have time for his class, wherein I dropped his class, reported his comment to the Dean and signed up for another class. Don’t let anyone accuse you of being a nutball because you ask questions, or infer that you are not “all there”, that you are a conspiracy theorist. Remember, without the questions, we cannot understand the facts that expose themselves from the preponderance of the evidence that is being uncovered. The greatest philosophers, theologians, scientists and historians all asked questions!!

    YES to that last comment ~ the greatest … all asked questions. How else do you discover the answers?

  8. Reblogged this on Sandy Hook Truth and commented:
    Another coincidence? Here’s a great article about Project Longevity, which was signed IN Connecticut just weeks before the shootings at Sandy Hook.

  9. 1. Soto is Hispanic
    2. Ana Marquez-Greene is Hispanic/African-American
    3. Madeleine Hsu is Chinese American
    4. Noah Pozner is Semitic (ethnically speaking)
    5. Avielle Richman is Semitic and Native American
    6. Josephine Gay is, I believe, part Native

    Just saying.

  10. “It remains unclear whether the gunman Adam Lanza actually used an assault rifle to kill the Sandy Hook 26.”
    No – this is as crystal as day. Two long guns were removed from the trunk of the car (watch on YouTube: watch?v=RU4ylgXudls) and four (yes, 4) handguns were found inside the school (watch?v=DZv-05Rw8yw).

    • On March 29, 2013, the judge-imposed gag on law enforcement was lifted and authorities finally revealed 5 search warrants and other info related to the Sandy Hook massacre. According to the newly-released info, Adam Lanza had left a 12-gauge shotgun in the car before he entered Sandy Hook Elementary School. There, he used the Bushmaster .223 caliber model XM15 rifle to kill the 20 kids and 6 adults, and a Glock 10 mm handgun to kill himself.

      • Yes they keep coming with new “information” that continually changes the official story. Coincidentally, don’t you think?

    “It remains unclear whether the gunman Adam Lanza actually used an assault rifle to kill the Sandy Hook 26″.

    It remains unclear whether Lanza has ever fired a gun in his life.

  12. Don’t forget, Madeleine Hsu. Hsu is part Asian.

  13. Just saying. That’s all, thank you very much.
