Friday Funny: Cheer up, Hillary!

Hillary’s presidential campaign isn’t going well.

In last week’s Iowa caucus, it was practically a tie: Hillary got 49.9% of the votes vs. Bernie Sanders’ 49.6%.

Then, this Tuesday in the New Hampshire primary, Bernie actually bested Hillary by more than 22 points: 60.4% vs. 38%.

As you might imagine, seeing her life-long presidential dreams going up in smoke, Hillary is pretty down in the dumps.

Obama goes after Social Security recipients’ guns

Obama said that his top priority for his remaining time in office is gun control.

He’s already done it to our military veterans — getting the dysfunctional Veterans Administration to take guns away from veterans deemed “mentally unfit”. (See “Obama regime prohibits disabled veterans from owning firearms and ammunition”)

Now, Obama is extending the same BOHICA “courtesy” to Social Security recipients.

Obama guns

Alan Zarembo reports for The Los Angeles Times, July 18, 2015, that Obama plans to ban millions of Social Security recipients from owning guns, as “part of a concerted effort by the Obama administration after the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn., to strengthen gun control, including by plugging holes in the background check system.”

For the links to the posts FOTM has published on the Sandy Hook false-flag, go here.

The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), with a database of more than 13 million records, is used to prevent gun sales to felons, fugitives, drug addicts, illegal immigrants, domestic abusers, dishonorably discharged service members, and others. The law requires gun stores to run the names of prospective buyers through the computerized background check system before every sale.

Already, Obama’s Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) has expanded the category of “others” to include veterans who are incompetent to manage their pension or disability payments, and are assigned a fiduciary. Conservative groups have denounced the policy as an excuse to strip veterans of their gun rights.

Social Security has never participated in the background check system. Now, Obama means to change that by including some 4.2 million Social Security (SS) recipients who “lack mental capacity” — whose monthly disability payments are handled by others (“representative payees”) due to “marked subnormal intelligence, or mental illness, incompetency, condition, or disease.”

Critics — including gun rights activists, mental health experts and advocates for the disable — say that although such a ban would keep people who pose a danger to themselves or others from owning guns, the strategy undoubtedly would also include people who may just have a bad memory or difficulty balancing a checkbook.

Yale psychiatrist Dr. Marc Rosen, who has studied how veterans with mental health problems manage their money, points out that “Someone can be incapable of managing their funds but not be dangerous, violent or unsafe. They are very different determinations.” Rosen said some veterans may avoid seeking help for mental health problems out of fear that they would be required to give up their guns.

Ari Ne’eman, a member of the National Council on Disability (NCD), said the NCD would oppose any policy that used assignment of a representative payee as a basis to take any fundamental right from people with disabilities.

Steven Overman, a 30-year-old former Marine who lives in Virginia, said he “didn’t know the VA could take away your guns” and that his case demonstrates the flaws of judging gun safety by the yardstick of financial competence.

After his Humvee hit a roadside bomb in Iraq in 2007, Overman was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and a brain injury that weakened his memory and cognitive ability, and was deemed 100% disabled by the VA. In 2012, after declaring Overman incompetent and making his wife his fiduciary, the VA reported him to the background check system. So Overman surrendered his guns to his mother and began working with a lawyer to get them back because he enjoys target shooting and has never felt he is a danger to himself or others.

More than a year and a half after Overman filed his challenge, the VA finally lifted its incompetence ruling, allowing his removal from the background check system. Overman, who hasn’t worked since leaving the military, said he and a friend are now thinking of opening a gunsmith business.

In the case of the proposed Social Security Administration policy to take guns from SS recipients, what is even more of a concern is that the agency has been drafting its policy outside of public view.

Even the National Rifle Association (NRA) was unaware of it. Told about the initiative, the NRA issued a statement from its chief lobbyist, Chris W. Cox, saying: “If the Obama administration attempts to deny millions of law-abiding citizens their constitutional rights by executive fiat, the NRA stands ready to pursue all available avenues to stop them in their tracks.”

On April 23, 2015, Rep. Jeff Miller (R-FL) introduced a bill to change the VA’s gun policy. H.R. 2001, the Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act, would require a court to determine that somebody poses a danger before being reported to the background check system. The bill has been referred to the House Committee on Veterans Affairs.

Sandy Hook Fake-O-lympics medalists

The video below is also a reason why Glenn Beck should not be trusted.

And the Sandy Hook Fake-O-lympics decathlon champion is . . .

Robbie Parker!

Watch the grief-stricken dad of alleged 6-year-old victim Emilie, in mere seconds, go from laughing and joking to feigning to choke back his tears (no tear actually materialized) as he made a statement to the press.

I’ll leave y’all with this screenshot from the Fake-O-lympics video of smiling and laughing Lynn and Chris McDonnell, after just finding out their precious 6-year-old daughter Grace had been brutally shot to death.

Common Core Math: 5+5+5≠15 and other follies

5×3 = 15

But Common Core says 5+5+5 ≠ 15!

Common Core says the answer to 8+5 is to think of the question as 10+3!

And Common Core says 3×4 = 11 and 2+2 = 5 are okay!

God help us.

Lenny Pozner’s HONR Network: The Fine Art of Online Stalking and Harassment

In their December (Florida) Sun-Sentinel op/ed, Lenny and Veronique Pozner claim that James Tracy had harassed them with a registered letter demanding proof that their alleged son, Noah, had ever lived. That is a misrepresentation of Tracy’s letter, which actually requested Lenny to produce proof of his claim of copyright over Noah’s images.

Mere days after Sun-Sentinel‘s publication of Pozners’ op/ed, Florida Atlantic University (FAU) moved to fire Tracy, a tenured professor.

Since then, the Pozners’ accusation has been repeated in countless media reports and vicious comments by readers of those news articles. An expert on tenure and academic freedom interviewed by NBC even said on camera that FAU’s termination of Tracy’s employment is justified by Tracy’s (alleged) “harassment” of the Pozners, which trumps tenure and First Amendment right of free speech.

This important post by Tony Mead demonstrates that it is Lenny Pozner and his cronies who have been doing the harassing, character assassination, and other machinations. My blog, Fellowship of the Minds (FOTM), is one of the WordPress blogs targeted by Lenny, who was successful at getting WordPress unilaterally to take down images of Noah over which Lenny claims — but has not proved — copyright. WordPress even threatened to shut down FOTM if we ever post images of Noah again. I also know of at least one blogger, a college kid Timothy Hunter, whom Lenny successfully hounded and, as a result, is no longer blogging. Curiously, while he relentlessly goes after YouTubers and bloggers for supposed copyright infringement, Lenny continues to be incurious about how and why an image of Noah was included among the posters of those massacred at the Army Public School in Deshawar, Pakistan, on Dec. 16, 2014.

Mr. Mead also raises an important and fascinating question: Just who/what is bankrolling Lenny and his HONR Network? This post by Mr. Mead deserves to be widely disseminated. Please help the cause of truth by spreading this post via email and on social media.

UPDATE (Feb. 10, 2016):

This morning, at 10:30 a.m., Fellowship of the Minds (FOTM) received an email from Lenny Pozner – HONR Network, demanding that this post be taken down on the grounds that this post:

  1. Contains “false information concerning the Pozner family”;
  2. Was published “without authorization”;
  3. The intent of which is “for the sole purpose of harassment”.

This is Fellowship of the Minds‘ response:

  1. Pozner’s accusation that FOTM published “false information concerning the Pozner family” is vague, overly general, and unspecific.
  2. In reblogging Tony Mead’s post from Memory Hole Blog, FOTM is simply exercising and conforming to the free speech and free press rights guaranteed by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, for which FOTM requires neither “authorization” nor permission from Lenny or anyone else. Lenny Pozner is not the owner of FOTM, has never had a relationship with FOTM, and has no legal claim over FOTM.

  3. According to Law.com, the legal definition of “harassment” is:

“the act of systematic and/or continued unwanted and annoying actions of one party or a group, including threats and demands. The purposes may vary, including racial prejudice, personal malice, an attempt to force someone to quit a job or grant sexual favors, apply illegal pressure to collect a bill or merely gain sadistic pleasure from making someone anxious or fearful. Such activities may be the basis for a lawsuit if due to discrimination based on race or sex, a violation on the statutory limitations on collection agencies, involve revenge by an ex-spouse, or be shown to be a form of blackmail (“I’ll stop bothering you if you’ll go to bed with me”). The victim may file a petition for a “stay away” (restraining) order, intended to prevent contact by the offensive party. A systematic pattern of harassment by an employee against another worker may subject the employer to a lawsuit for failure to protect the worker.”

Nothing in the legal definition of “harassment” applies in FOTM‘s re-blogging of Mr. Mead’s post for the simple reason that FOTM does not have a relationship with Lenny Pozner, nor is the reblog addressed to Mr. Pozner. Specifically:

  • FOTM has issued no demands or threats at Mr. Pozner. Ironically, it is Mr. Pozner who has issued demands and threats at FOTM.
  • Nor has FOTM forced Mr. Pozner to quit his job or grant sexual favors.
  • Nor has FOTM applied pressure to collect a bill from Mr. Pozner.
  • Nor has FOTM attempted to induce anxiety or fear, or intended to do so, or derived sadistic pleasure in so doing.
  • Nor has FOTM discriminated against Mr. Pozner’s race or sex.
  • Nor has FOTM blackmailed Mr. Pozner.
  • Nor is FOTM the employer of Mr. Pozner.

The purpose of FOTM‘s re-blogging of Tony Mead’s post is expressly and solely to inform — a purpose that is stated in FOTM‘s “About” page, specifically our Fair Use Disclaimer:

Since so many people are showing up on my Facebook page for the first time, not knowing the persecution that we’ve endured, I think it appropriate that I introduce you to the HONR Network.

The HONR Network was founded by Lenny Pozner to seek out, identify, stalk and harass anyone who investigates the suspicious and confusing facts surrounding the Sandy Hook incident. They are dedicated to investigating individuals’  backgrounds, places of employment, family and friends, and then attacking their targets by posting personal information, pictures and even contacting people’s employers with accusations of harassment.

Lenny Pozner and HONR Network elite members strategize
their next move: “Hope … we get his brother

Memory holes: Newspaper gives articles the Hook.

Blogger “Cinderella’s Broom” discovered that the newspaper, Newtown Bee, had scrubbed from its website articles that were published in 2002, 2004 and 2008 on Sandy Hook Elementary School’s dilapidated roof and environmental toxins.

I had cited those articles in two of my posts, including “Sandy Hook Hoax: 6 signs that school was closed before the massacre“.

Cinderella's Broom

Why is the Newtown Bee removing article links related to Sandy Hook citizen investigations?

Cinderella noticed several memory holes yesterday in relation to two issues reported on by bloggers:

  1. The shabby condition of Sandy Hook Elementary, which suggests it was closed as a school long before 12-14-12. The photos of the school remain intact here.
  2. Garrett L. Denniston’s investment fraud activities committed between 2005-2012. Denniston’s wife served as principal of Reed Intermediate school from 2003-2009. The FBI report on Denniston remains intact here.
Three missing links. Go here to witness three memory holes in Fellowship of the Mind’s article, “Sandy Hook hoax: 6 signs that school was closed before massacre.”
The relevant paragraph is below, so you can easily test the three links:

“As examples, in 2002, Consulting Engineering Services recommended to the school district that SHES be “worked on in 2010 over a nine-month…
