I’ve had this post in draft for more than a year because accusing anyone or any town of Satanism is a terrible thing.
Now that it’s almost certain that the Sandy Hook massacre was theater (see “Sandy Hook massacre was a ‘contrived event,’ says former state trooper Wolfgang Halbig“), I decided to retrieve this post from draft.
Below is my report.
Please understand that I’m not saying that EVERYONE who lives in Sandy Hook/Newtown is a Satanist, or even that SH/Newtown is unique. For there are people in every town in every country across the world who, of their own volition, have chosen to align themselves with the Devil. The latter, being the father of all lies, will of course betray all of them in the end.
To begin with, Aaron Klein writes for WND, Dec. 22, 2012, that Satanic subculture or devil worship has been a factor in numerous other mass killings, although the phenomenon is underreported or altogether unreported.
As an example, in the immediate aftermath of the 1999 Columbine High School massacre, there were widespread reports killers Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were Goths obsessed with the Nazi death cult.
In the case of the July 20, 2012 mass shooting at a Batman movie in Aurora, Colo., although reports do not link the shooter, 24-year-old former neuroscience Ph.D. student James Eagan Holmes, to either devil worship or Goth, there are Satanic themes related to the “Joker” character after which Holmes had modeled himself.
Reportedly, Holmes was a big fan of Batman movies and had decorated his apartment with Batman paraphernalia. He dyed his hair red like the Joker and told police officers he was “the Joker” of Batman movies. In various Batman movies, including the recent Dark Knight series, the Joker’s calling card, handed out by the character in multiple scenes in the different movies, is a picture of the devil.
2. Adam Lanza said to be a satanist
According to the Daily Mail, Trevor L. Todd, a “former classmate” of alleged Sandy Hook gunman Adam Lanza, told The National Enquirer that Lanza was “weird,” “gave him the chills,” and was a devil-worshiper.
Todd claimed that Lanza had a webpage dedicated to Satan, with Gothic-style letters against a black background and the word “Devil” in red. However, neither Todd nor anyone else, including the State of Connecticut’s final report on the Sandy Hook massacre, seems to have found Lanza’s satanic webpage, not even the Wayback Machine, which is a digital archive of the World Wide Web.
So who is Trevor Todd and is he a real person?
Using the people search engine Spokeo, I did find a Trevor Todd at 5 Pecks Lane, Newtown, CT 06470, whose relatives are David L. Todd (age 56) and Gretchen Todd (age 61). However, according to the assessors online database of Vision Government Solutions, the owners of 5 Pecks Lane are not the Todds, but a couple named John and Riebe Patricia Peck.
Perhaps the most striking indicator of Satanism in Sandy Hook is a webpage on “What is the Church of Satan and How Do I Get Involved?,” which provides contact information to aspiring satanists.
In addition to the mailing address of the Church of Satan headquarters (PO Box 210666 San Francisco, CA 94121), the webpage also gives contact information for the “Church of Satan outpost in Connecticut.” Anyone who has questions or “would like to recieve [sic] an official information packet on our Church of Satan outpost in Connecticut” should write to:
Curtis M. LeBlanc
PO Box 3184, Newtown, CT 06470
I did a search of Curtis M. LeBlanc using EmailFinder, Spokeo, and Google:
I searched for that address on Google Map, which says 20 West St., Newtown, CT 06470 is the Newtown Congregational Church! Here’s a screenshot I took of 20 West St. (click map to enlarge):
Here’s a Google map showing the relationships between Sandy Hook and Newtown (in yellow circles), and the distance between the Sandy Hook Elementary School (A) and the Newtown Congregational Church (B):
Click map to enlarge
Newtown Congregational Church’s (NCC) website says it’s “a member of the United Church of Christ,” “perched on ten acres,” established in 1714 as the first church in Newtown and “has served as a spiritual center for the Newtown, Connecticut area for nearly 300 years.” Its address is 14 West St.
I emailed the church about its address — whether it’s 14 or 20 West St. A very helpful and pleasant secretary promptly answered my email. She said the church’s address is 14 West St. She has no idea what 20 West St. is and had looked up a directory for 20 West St. but found nothing.
When I searched for 14 West St., Newtown, CT, on Google Map, this is the result: Newtown Congregational Church.
In other words, Google Map thinks both 20 West St. and 14 West St. are the Newtown Congregational Church. Weird!
At the 8:35 mark in a CNN news video of “family photos” supplied by the family of slain Sandy Hook first grade teacher Victoria Soto, is a picture of Soto (in the right foreground) and a white-haired man (in the background on the left) making a devil’s horn sign with his right hand. Here’s a screen shot of that pic from the video:
More interesting still is the fact that “devil’s horn guy” looks remarkably like Michael Greenberg, the father of actress Jennifer Greenberg Sexton who looks remarkably like a Sandy Hook parent named Laura Phelps. (See my post of Jan. 11, 2013, “Remarkable resemblance of Sandy Hook victims and professional crisis actors“.)
According to RustyShackleford of Metabunk.org, Feb. 27, 2013, The Connecticut Skeptic conducted a phone poll back in 1996 about the claims of satanism in Newtown. These were the results:
1. Have you ever heard of Satanic cult activity in Newtown?
2. Satanic Cults represent how much of a threat to Newtown?
3. Satanic cult activity in the US is:
4. Satanic cult activity in Newtown is:
5. The Newtown Police Department should place how much of a priority on Satanic cults?
6. What residents said about satanism in Newtown
In January 2013, a Canadian couple, “fed up with the mainstream media’s depiction of what took place in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012,” made a visit to Newtown on their own to visit the sites and talk to the locals.
This is an excerpt from their account, “An Inquisitive Couple’s Visit to Newtown, Connecticut,” posted on Professor James Tracy’s blog, Memory Hole:
“We sat at the 100 Church Hill Restaurant for a couple of hours. There were about 10 people inside. There were about 100 drawings from children from around the country (if not the world) offering condolences and well wishes. No one was talking about these. My partner and I spoke with a couple in their early twenties for an hour or so. They were life long locals. Eventually they asked why we were in Newtown and we told them we had heard of their tragedy. They did not comment further and we did not push the issue. Later, I mentioned that I had read online where some people had suggested that Newtown might have a lively Satanic community. One of the two locals remarked, “I could believe that.”

Seattle Times: Eastside Catholic School, facing a wrongful-dismissal lawsuit from its former vice principal, said Thursday that Mark Zmuda referred to his same-sex partner as a “friend” and later as “roommate” on an emergency-contact form, and that months before his firing was asked to remove “inappropriate” Facebook photos that had generated parent concern.
The claims come in response to the lawsuit Zmuda’s lawyers plan to file Friday in King County Superior Court against the school and the Archdiocese of Seattle. They also offer a glimpse into the kinds of details sure to spill out in what promises to be a closely watched case centering on same-sex marriage and the Catholic Church.
In December, the private school in Sammamish fired Zmuda, who was also the swim coach, after administrators learned he had married his longtime partner over the summer. The school at the time said he was terminated for violating church doctrine that he agreed to uphold when he accepted the job.
Zmuda’s suit argues that as vice principal, his duties were administrative and “wholly unrelated to any religious practice or activity.”
The Archdiocese, which could not be reached for comment Thursday, has said it had nothing to do with Zmuda’s dismissal, but supported the school’s decision. Although affiliated with the archdiocese, Eastside is run by its own board of trustees.
Zmuda’s dismissal ignited student protests and led eventually to the resignation of the school’s president, Sister Mary Tracy.
In the lawsuit, Zmuda claims breach of contract, wrongful termination, violation of public policy, as well as violation of the state’s consumer-protection and anti-discrimination laws. It is also claiming “tortious interference” by the archdiocese into Zmuda’s economic relations with his employer. In the suit, Zmuda said Tracy told him the decision to terminate him came from the archbishop.
The school said it plans to file a motion to dismiss the lawsuit, saying such a complaint would “impermissibly entangle the Court in Catholic doctrine,” and violate its First Amendment right to make decisions on matters of faith.
“This Court’s interference in Eastside Catholic’s decision on whether to employ a person married to someone of the same sex, a violation of Catholic doctrine, would encroach on Eastside Catholic’s ability to manage its internal affairs,” the school said in its answer to the lawsuit’s claims.
Additionally, the school said, the very
same-sex-homosexual marriage law that allowed Zmuda to marry his partner last summer, also prohibits him from suing, since that law exempts religious organizations from having to acknowledge such marriages in the first place.
Zmuda said in his lawsuit that he never revealed nor did he try to conceal he was gay. He said he first told school administrators he was gay in January 2013, when he was called to the president’s office and asked directly.
Administrators said in their response to the lawsuit that he was called to the office to answer concerns raised by parents and others regarding public photos posted on Zmuda’s Facebook page. Schools officials considered the photos inappropriate for a representative of the school and inconsistent with the school’s Catholic faith-based values.
During that meeting, Zmuda told them he was gay and agreed to remove the Facebook profile, according to the school’s response.
Zmuda accuses the school of breaching its promise not to discriminate against employees based on their marital status and sexual orientation and other factors protected by state law — a promise that until not long ago was posted on the school’s website.
“As a result of [Eastside Catholic’s] deceptive act or practice, Mr. Zmuda married his husband with a reasonable expectation that he would continue to be employed by ECS,” the lawsuit states.
Zmuda’s attorneys appear to be taking advantage of an opening created last month when the state Supreme Court ruled that religious nonprofits, like Eastside for example, can be sued for job discrimination if an employee’s work was unrelated to religion.
Before that ruling, attorneys seldom filed discrimination lawsuits against religious nonprofits in Washington state courts, where they knew there was no protection, and instead went to federal court. Federal law, however, does not count sexual orientation as a protected class in employment discrimination.
Zmuda claims that his duties were unrelated to religious practices — that those duties were “no different than the job duties of a vice principal at a public school or nonreligious private school.”
But the school counters that his duties were “inextricably intertwined with the religious practice and activities of the church,” as outlined in the employee handbook he signed. They add that while at Eastside, he served as Eucharistic minister at some of Eastside Masses and liturgies, and delivered the opening prayer over the public-address system for staff and students, among other duties.
The lawsuit seeks compensation for lost wages, emotional distress and harm to Zmuda’s reputation.
Disney World has succumbed to the Left’s propaganda on political correctness.
Jordan Zakarin reports for Reuters (via Orlando Sentinel), Feb. 27, 2014, that Walt Disney World will no longer subsidize local chapters of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), in response to BSA’s continued ban on allowing homosexual troop leaders. The Boy Scouts of America voted last spring to allow openly “gay” youth scouts, but kept its ban on openly “gay” troop leaders.
The theme park has donated in the past to the Orlando-area Boy Scouts as part of its “Ears to You” program, which gives money to causes for which its employees volunteer. The Walt Disney Company’s “Standards of Business Conduct” includes protections against “harassment or discrimination” based on, amongst other things, “sex, sexual orientation, and gender identification.”
The Scouts’ Central Florida Council Board President Robert Utsey wrote in an email to local members: ”We recognize that many Scout Units have received financial support over the last several years from this grant opportunity and are sad to see it go. The National BSA Council has reached out to WDW to try to resolve the situation, however, according to WDW, their views do not currently align with the BSA and they are choosing to discontinue this level of support. We will continue to keep an open line of communication with them, but at this time, are unable to reverse their decision.”
Blah. Blah. Blah.
Every year, tens of thousands of LGBT people gather on the first weekend in June at Walt Disney World and other Orlando theme parks and resorts, making it one of the biggest LGBT group celebrations in the world. Disney does not officially recognize the “Gay Day,” but has not discouraged the tradition, which has earned it the wrath of conservative and religious groups. It also has offered health benefits to same-sex partners of employees since 1995, and allows same-sex marriage ceremonies on its grounds.
Disney World either doesn’t know or, more likely, doesn’t care that:

This story is, at once, uplifting and sad . . . .
Steve Hartman reports for CBS News, Feb. 28, 2014:
At the Ohio Air National Guard base near Toledo, Lt. Col. Frank Dailey still can’t believe the honor recently bestowed upon him. ”It’s incredible being recognized in such a manner,” he says.
It happened at a Cracker Barrel, of all places. As the security camera shows, Dailey entered the restaurant on Feb. 7 for an early lunch. At about the same time, 8-year-old Myles Eckert came in with his family.
Myles was very excited. He’d just found a $20 bill in the parking lot. He’d started thinking of what he could spend it on. ”I kind of wanted to get a video game, but then I decided not to,” Myles says.
He changed his mind when he saw the guy in uniform. ”Because he was a soldier, and soldiers remind me of my dad,” Myles explains.
And so, with his dad in mind, Myles wrapped the $20 in a note that read, “Dear Soldier — my dad was a soldier. He’s in heaven now. I found this 20 dollars in the parking lot when we got here. We like to pay it forward in my family. It’s your lucky day! Thank you for your service. Myles Eckert, a gold star kid.”
Army Sgt. Andy Eckert was killed in Iraq, just five weeks after Myles was born. All the kid has ever had are pictures and dog tags, other people’s memories and his own imagination. ”I imagine him as a really nice person and somebody that would be really fun,” Myles says.
The dad he imagines must also love a good story. Because after lunch that day, Myles asked his mom, Tiffany, to make one more stop.
“He wanted to go see his dad,” Tiffany says. “And he wanted to go by himself that day.”
She took a photo from the car. Follow the footsteps and you’ll see Myles standing there behind the flag, presumably telling his dad all about it. And whether heaven heard him or not, his good deed continues to impress here on earth.
“I look at it every day,” Dailey says of the note Myles gave him.
It turns out Myles gave him a bigger gift than $20.
“A lifetime direction, for sure,” Dailey says.
Dailey says he’s already given away that $20 and plans to do much more. He also hopes that little green Post-It will inspire other people across the country to give — to give as sincerely and dutifully as that father and son.
Erica Blade reports for The (Toledo) Blade, May 17, 2005, that (Myles’ dad) Sgt. Gary “Andy” Eckert was the first member of the U.S. Army Reserve’s 983rd Engineer Battalion in Monclova Township killed in action since World War II. He was only 24 years old.
It was his second tour overseas, the first one ended after he sustained injuries for which he received the Purple Heart.
Sgt. Eckert left a wife, Tiffany, a 2-year-old daughter, and a newborn son, Myles.
At Eckert’s funeral service at the Calvary Assembly of God Church, Brig. Gen. Michael Beasley, commander of the Army’s 88th Regional Readiness Command, said: ”Andy didn’t have to go back to war. He came back a Purple Heart recipient. He wanted to go back to serve our nation, with our soldiers. He served after the birth of [his daughter] Marlee Freedom. He served knowing [his son] Miles Manning was on the way. He was a wonderful soldier and a brilliant patriot. He was someone who taught us a whole lot about wearing a uniform, about being a father, about being a husband, and about being an American.”
Here’s the CBS video on Myles’ “paying forward”:
Would you believe that on the video’s YouTube site, 236 people gave the video a thumbs down?

Today, March 3rd, the universal Church celebrates a great American saint, who was an heiress, philanthropist, educator, Catholic sister and foundress.
Katharine was born to wealthy and devout Catholic parents on November 26, 1858, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, wherein Frances, Katharine’s father, was an investment banker. Because of wealth, Katharine was able to travel the world, receive a superior education and set forth her grand debut into high society.
In spite of the family wealth, the Drexel family opened their home to the poor three days each week, and Frances practiced a daily prayer life spending at least one-half an hour each evening in prayer.
Even though she was a high-status individual, for three years she nursed her stepmother through a terminal illness. She understood then that money, although wonderfully helpful, could not provide any escape from “brother pain” and ultimately death. This I will call her “final incident,” wherein she knew she was destined for a life of service.
Katharine read Helen Hunt Jackson’s, “A Century of Dishonor,” regarding the plight of the American Indians. This book interested her in helping Native American Indians. She met Pope Leo XIII whilst she was on a European tour, requesting that he send more missionaries to Wyoming to help Bishop James O’Connor, her friend. The pope said to her, “Why don’t you become a missionary?” Obviously, the pope planted a seed into Katharine’s very being, thinking about his suggestion consistently.
Katherine decided to visit North and/or South Dakota, where she met “Red Cloud,” the Sioux Indian chief. She continued to confide in Bishop O’Connor regarding her future, wherein she wrote in 1889: “The feast of St. Joseph (which is March 19th) brought me the grace to give the remainder of my life to the Indians and the Colored.” She made headlines in the newspapers: “GIVES UP SEVEN MILLION!”
She went into training for three and one-half years, finding an Order of nuns entitled, “Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament for Indians and Colored,” wherein she opened a boarding school in Santa Fe. She set up various foundations. Incredibly, she founded Catholic schools in 13 states for black people, 40 mission centers and 23 rural schools. The American segregationists dishonored her work by burning one of her schools in Pennsylvania. But their tactics and evil deeds did not deter her. She established 50 missions for Indians in 16 states. And one of her most wonderful achievements was founding Xavier University in New Orleans, Louisiana, the first Catholic university in the United States for African Americans.
Mother Cabrini, another American Catholic saint, met with her about her Order, advising her how to get Rome to approve her Order.
At the age of 77, Katharine suffered a heart attack and had to retire from her busy life of service. But little did she know that she would spend 20 years living in a small room which overlooked the sanctuary where the Blessed Sacrament was kept, praying intensely, where she wrote her thoughts on slips of paper. Katharine said, “The patient and humble endurance of the cross–whatever nature it may be–is the highest work we have to do. Oh, how far I am at 84 years of age from being an image of Jesus in his sacred life on earth!” She died on March 3, 1955, and was canonized in 2000.
This wonderful Saint reminds me of what St. Paul said about money. He said that the love of money was the root of all evil, not money itself. Would you give away seven million dollars to help the less fortunate and poor? She also used these monies to develop her productive foundations and missions, schools and even a Catholic university. She was humble, innovative, compassionate and an incredible leader. She was truly generous, not only with her tremendous monetary fortune, but generous with her entire life, giving it in service to her neighbor to those individuals who are “Jesus in disguise.” May we be reminded that such holiness can be lived even in today’s society, in current times, not just lived in early times in Jerusalem, Rome, Syria or Greece. We, all, are called to be saints, called to be holy.
It is my hope that there is an extravagant party in heaven to match St. Katharine’s extravagant generosity, for this most inspirational lady and great American heroine and leader. St. Katharine Drexel, pray for us!
With respect and love,

The Stamford Advocate reports March 2, 2014:
A 72-year-old substitute teacher at Westhill High School was put on suicide watch after he was allegedly caught masturbating in a school hallway while looking at school children Wednesday morning shortly after the school day began.
According to police, at about 7:33 a.m. Michael Luecke was spotted lying on the floor by a teacher’s assistant who thought he was injured. When she got closer, she realized the man had his hand in his pants and he was fully aroused, police said.
The assistant then yelled at Luecke and notified school officials. Luecke ran off at that point, police said.
School Principal Camille Figluizzi said she called police and turned over video surveillance of the incident.
Figluizzi said class was in session at the time and the students who passed by Luecke’s location in the Raynor house of the building did not seem to notice the incident.
According to police, six students passed the location while Luecke was masturbating. Police said they are in the process of identifying the students to determine if there’s a need for counseling.
A news release by Lt. Diedrich Hohn said video surveillance tape was recovered showing Luecke in a corner of a stairwell in the Raynor building at 7:30 a.m. suspiciously manipulating the front of his pants while looking at students in the courtyard.
Once he was identified, Luecke was found in the classroom he was overseeing, and removed, police said. He was brought to the main office and detained by school resource officers.
Luecke, of 44 Strawberry Hill Ave., Stamford, was later charged with public indecency, second-degree breach of peace and risk of injury to a minor. He was held on $25,000 bond. Because he was placed on suicide watch, his clothing was taken from him and his police photograph shows him dressed in a suicide smock.
One person tweeted from the school that the man was spotted by several people masturbating in the hallway of the school.
According to a bankrupcy filing from April of 2013, Luecke, a former biotechnology consultant, was employed by both Stamford and Greenwich school districts as a substitute teacher.
The Luecke was dismissed immediately on Wednesday, Figluizzi said.
Figliuzzi said there were no problems with Luecke in the past, but she also couldn’t say he was at Westhill regularly.
Substitutes are dispatched by the central district to the schools and are not hired by Westhill.
The school district did not confirm the Luecke’s name, but did say he had been employed as a high school substitute since 2009.
Beadle said substitutes fill out an application and go through an interview and screening process that includes a background check and fingerprinting by the police department.
There had never been any problems with this substitute in the past, Beadle said.
Yet another reason to home school your kids! LOL
Today, February 28th, the universal Church honors Blessed Daniel Brottier, a devoted priest and decorated chaplain.
Daniel was born in France on September 7, 1876, the second son of the coachman for the Marquis Durfort, Jean-Baptiste Brottier, and his wife, Herminie. Daniel desired to become a priest during his childhood. His mother related the story that when she asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up, that he replied: “I won’t be either a general or a pastry chef – I will be the Pope!” Herminie reminded her son that he would first have to be ordained a priest to ever become a pope. Daniel replied: “Well, then I’ll become a priest.”
He received his First Holy Communion when he was ten, enrolling a year later in the minor seminary at Blois. On October 22, 1899, he was ordained a priest, never faltering from his childhood representations and vocation call. After his ordination, he taught at a secondary school in Pontlevoy, France.
Daniel did not find his niche as a teacher, as he was determined to serve as a missionary somewhere in the world. With that desire as a goal, in 1902 he joined the Congregation of the Holy Spirit at Orly. Upon completing his novitiate in the order in 1903, the congregation sent him to serve as a vicar in a mission parish in Saint-Louis, Senegal. However, Father Daniel remained disappointed at this assignment, as he wanted to serve in the rough country in Senegal.
In any event, Father Daniel enthusiastically worked hard at his position, instructing secondary school students, finding a center for child welfare and publishing a parish bulletin, “The Echo of St. Louis.” Daniel suffered from the effects of the climate in Senegal, and went back to France in 1906 to recover from his health issues. Unfortunately, in spite of his missionary zeal, in 1911 he returned to France permanently because of his ongoing health problems.
The Apostolic Vicar of Senegal, Bishop Hyacinthe Jalabert, requested that Father Daniel conduct a fund-raising effort to build a cathedral in Dakar, Senegal. Even though Father Daniel resided in France, he conducted this campaign for seven years during two distinct periods of time, 1911-1914 and 1919-1923. The five year difference in time was a result of the First World War. Nevertheless, the “African Memorial Cathedral” was consecrated on February 2, 1936, just 26 days away from Father Daniel’s death.
With regard to the five-year interval period, Father Daniel volunteered to serve as a chaplain for France’s 121st Infantry Regiment during the First World War. He served the soldiers with great love and courage, having been cited six times for bravery, and having been awarded the Croix de guerre and the Legion d’honneur. Father Daniel indicated that it was through the intercession of St. Therese of the Little Flower that he was able to help the soldiers as he did, wherein he built a chapel for her at Auteuil when she was canonized a saint, which was the first church ever dedicated to the Little Flower. After the war, Father Daniel founded the “National Union of Servicemen”, an organization for French veterans of various wars.
The Cardinal Archbishop of Paris, Louis-Ernest Dubois, requested that the Congregation of the Holy Spirit manage an orphanage in Paris, the “Orphan Apprentices of Auteuil.” Of course, Father Daniel with his excellent and creative leadership skills, became completely involved in this project, and worked for 13 years from 1923 on forward, with the help of his associate chaplain, Yves Pichon, to expand the orphanage, working very hard for the care, best interests and welfare of the orphans that he served. Father Daniel once again dedicated his efforts to the intercession of the Little Flower, and also, to serve the most poor and unfortunate.
Indeed and in fact, in 1933, Father Daniel started a program placing children in the households of Catholic individuals associated with the Orphan Apprentices. His work gave much fruit, as he constructed workshops, a printing house, a cinema, even publishing magazines. To show how effective Father Daniel was in his work, when he started with the orphanage, there were 140 orphans; when he died, there were more than 1400 orphans served.
Father Daniel was a remarkable fund-raiser, mastering the use of the camera, where he even taught film making to the children. To show his love for the Little Flower and so that people would learn about her, he produced a film on the life of St. Therese.
Dear Father Daniel died on February 28, 1936, in the hospital of St. Joseph in Paris. Approximately 15,000 people attended his funeral Mass. He was buried in the Chapel of St. Therese in Auteuil on April 5, 1936, which is the chapel that he built. On January 13, 1983, Pope John Paul II declared Father Daniel, “venerable,” and he was beautified on November 25, 1984. Noteworthy was the fact that in 1962, his body was incorrupt as on the day of his burial; and, many miracles were attributed to his intercession.
I am so happy to meet Brother Daniel Brottier today. He is such a dedicated hard worker, full of innovation and creativity. He was a great leader, notwithstanding the fact that during his four years in the front during World War I, he ministered to the suffering and dying soldiers, risking his life constantly, to care for them. I also am drawn to him because of his love for St. Therese of the Little Flower, who taught the “Little Way,” which means to do all things with great love. There is no doubt in my mind that Blessed Daniel followed this maxim completely, and look at the improvements and successes that took place as a result of his efforts. Clearly, the beautiful Little Flower was helping him in his vocation. Let us remember the example of this great “mover and shaker” of God, asking for his intercession and guidance.
Blessed Daniel Brottier, pray for us!
With Love and Respect,

A year and two months after the alleged massacre on Dec. 14, 2012 of 20 first-grade children and 6 adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) in Newtown, Connecticut, we now have a credible honest man saying, with no doubt or hesitancy, that what we’ve been told about the massacre simply isn’t true.
The massacre was “a contrived event,” which means it didn’t happen. The whole thing was fake.
Who is this man?
He is Wolfgang W. Halbig, a humble straight-talking 67-year-old man who has an impressive professional record as a law enforcement officer (U.S. Customs inspector and Florida state trooper), an educator (public school coach, teacher, assistant principal and principal), and a nationally-recognized school safety consultant who has served as an expert witness in the Columbine and other school shootings.
Below is his biographical sketch:
In a stunning radio interview with Dave Gahary of American Free Press, uploaded to YouTube on Feb. 13, 2014, Mr. Halbig:
Like many FOTM readers, I rarely have the time or patience to watch long videos. In the case of Halbig’s interview, it is more than 43 minutes long. So I listened to and transcribed from the interview to write this post, because reading a report in text not only is quicker, we also are better able to retain the information.
What follows is my report on Halbig’s interview. Words between quotations marks are Halbig’s.
Being a school safety consultant who has traveled to every state in America to investigate and testify on school shootings, Halbig calls every shooting “a puzzle” that must be pieced together. In the case of the Sandy Hook massacre, however, the pieces of this puzzle simply “don’t fit.” Those pieces include:
1. When the police arrived at Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) that morning, they parked ¼ mile from the school’s front door instead of doing what first responders are supposed to do in an active shooter event, which is to neutralize the threat as quickly as possible so as to save as many lives as possible.
2. Paramedics and EMTs (emergency medical technicians) were not allowed to enter the school. Instead they were kept waiting in the Sandy Hook fire station nearby, 500 yards down the road from SHES.
3. Trauma helicopters, which can provide the quickest and best medical services in an emergency, were not sent to Sandy Hook. Life Star, the medical helicopter service at Danbury Hospital’s Trauma Center, told Halbig “we were never called, never asked.”
4. Where were the ambulances to transport the wounded to hospitals?
5. Why did police declare 26 people to be dead within the first 11 minutes of the shooting, when according to Connecticut law, only a doctor can declare someone to be legally dead?
6. Why did the FBI classify the Sandy Hook massacre? This has never been done before. Even the Columbine School massacre was not classified information. To this day, the FBI report on Sandy Hook remains classified information, not releasable to the public.
7. Why did the State of Connecticut wait ELEVEN whole months to issue its official final report on the Sandy Hook shootings to the American public? Note that the final report does not include the FBI’s still-classified report.
8. Police transmissions don’t lie because they are made by sworn and trained law enforcement officers. On the morning of Dec. 14, 2012, recorded police transmissions said “We have multiple weapons inside the [SH] classroom — a rifle and a shotgun.” But nobody could find the shotgun in the school. Instead, a shotgun was found in the black Honda parked outside the school.
9. At 9:45 AM that day, a police officer found a surviving kindergarten-aged girl in the hallway. The officer sent her back into Room 8 — a crime scene with students and teachers shot dead. What police officer would do that?
10. Similarly, that morning, two Connecticut state troopers entered Room 10 and found an unharmed boy hiding in the bathroom. The troopers ordered the boy to stay in the room — a room with dead people. “That’s not police protocol.”
11. Having investigated and given expert testimony on many school shootings, Halbig says “I know what tears look like.” But the parents of slain Sandy Hook children, as we’ve noted here on FOTM, did not cry. (In the now famous case of Robbie Parker, the father of allegedly slain 6-year-old Emilie, he went from laughing and joking to pretending to choke back tears in the blink of an eye.)
12. Sandy Hook’s medical examiner Dr. Wayne Carver refused to let the parents see the bodies of their slain children, and instead gave them photos of the bodies, which is “unheard of.” Halbig knows about the inconsolable grief of parents and is himself a parent. Parents whose children had been shot dead “would kick the door down” demanding to see the bodies.
13. Why was Sandy Hook Elementary School torn down? This is not the case with any of the other schools where shootings had taken place, including Columbine School.
14. Who installed the new security system at SHES? This should be a matter of public record.
15. The shooting-to-death of 26 people would leave 45-60 gallons of blood. Who cleaned it up? What biohazard company was hired to clean the crime scene?
16. Why is there not even one lawsuit by a Sandy Hook parent against SHES for negligence? Halbig has never ever seen a school shooting without parents suing the school for negligence.
17. Why are there so many fund-raisers for the Sandy Hook shootings? Halbig: “I’ve never seen so many fund-raisers” in the case of Sandy Hook. One fundraising alone, by United Way, netted $17 million, from which “every [SH] parent got a big chunk of money.”
18. Alleged shooter Adam Lanza, 20, is said to have Asperger syndrome — a high-functioning (in academics) form of austism. Halbig points out, however, that like those with autism, children with Asperger have “very very poor motor skills” and “very poor muscle tone.” How did Asperger-afflicted Adam Lanza with “very poor muscle tone” carry a rifle, a shotgun, a handgun, and bullets? How did Asperger-afflicted Adam Lanza with “very very poor motor skills” shoot 26 people dead — not wounded — in less than five minutes, firing one bullet roughly every two seconds?
When the alleged massacre first happened, like all of us, Halbig was in shock. But a week after, he started asking questions.
About two months after the alleged massacre, in February 2013, invoking Connecticut’s Freedom of Information Act, Halbig began phoning and sending letters to various local and state officials, asking the same questions that you’ve read above. The officials include the SHES superintendent, members of the school board, secretary to the school board, Newtown Chief of Police Michael Kehoe, and the Department of Education of the State of Connecticut.
You can read the letters he sent on Veterans Today.
To date, a year after he called and wrote to those officials, Halbig has received NOT EVEN ONE RESPONSE. No one returned his call. No one replied to his letters. Halbig: “If you refuse to respond to simple questions, there’s something wrong. Why would you not tell us what happened?”
Two months ago, at about 10 AM “right before Christmas,” two law enforcement officers — homicide investigators — from Lake County Sheriff’s Office (Halbig lives in Lake County, Florida) knocked on his door. The two officers were dressed in plain clothes.
They showed Halbig their badges; read to him the dossier they had on him (Halbig: “somebody did their homework”); and warned him that if he doesn’t “stop asking questions about Sandy Hook, the Connecticut state police will file felony charges of harassment against” him.
As Halbig put it, “If I don’t comply, bad things will happen to me.”
The two officers then advised Halbig to “hire an attorney.”
Note that Halbig had asked the questions politely, and that it is within his legal right to ask those questions because he invoked the Freedom of Information Act.
Wolfgang Halbig was asked point blank what he thinks of the Sandy Hook shootings. This is his response:
“In my professional opinion [as a school safety consultant], I suspect Sandy Hook was a scripted event that took place, in the planning for two or 2½ years.”
Note from Eowyn: That would explain why so many of the homes of Sandy Hook victims had a strange sale transaction date of 12/25/2009 and sale price of $0. December 2009 is exactly two years before the alleged massacre.
Halbig does not believe any child was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
In his words: “Sandy Hook raised public fear in every school, private and public. If people used children and teachers as a prop to enhance their agenda, shame on you.”
As in Watergate, Halbig says we must “follow the money.” He notes the unprecedented scale of Sandy Hook fund-raising and public donations, and that Attorney General Eric Holder awarded “a big check” to every police officer involved in the Sandy Hook shooting. Halbig suggests there’ll be “witness relocations” and people who will not be “paying taxes for the next 10 years.”
Halbig plans to:
1. Visit Newtown in person to ask people questions “eye ball to eye ball.”
2. Raise money to hire attorneys to depose the “key players” to testify. Anyone who lies in a deposition has committed a felony.
3. File civil law suits against the Sandy Hook/Newtown school board because “They’re counting on no one’s going to sue.”
When the interviewer reminded him that “if this [conspiracy] goes up to the highest level, to the White House, your life is in danger,” Halbig said “I had a great journey” and is prepared to die to uncover the truth of Sandy Hook.
His final words to us:
“I cannot believe people sit back and they listen to the national media — that idiot box telling them what to believe. There’s nothing wrong in asking questions.”

This Vid is pretty funny. I don’t think any children were harmed in the making of this vid. The guy and daughter laughing is infectious. —————————————————————————————————-
I have no clue who this guy is, nor do I remember who shared this on my Facebook newsfeed during the weekend, but the following clip is hilarious and oh so totally cruel all in the same facet.
To set the scene, this guy just arrived to pick up his daughter from what I presume to be a middle school. They live in a place where there’s a ton of snow and ice lingering on the ground. Waiting for his daughter to exit from her scholarly pursuits, it appears he’s doing what we all do when we get bored: playing with his smartphone. Then, he just so happens to notice a large patch of ice conveniently nestled right on the path kids begin taking as they exit the school.
What does he do? Get out and warn the kids there’s a latent hazard that could lead to them busting their asses and potentially breaking bones?
No Bleeping way, man!
Instead, he sits in his warm car and records these kids getting worked by the slick sidewalk for FIVE MINUTES. There’s also some great commentary.
I’m torn between whether this guy’s the early front-runner for Father of the Year 2014, or if he’s cruel and sadistic and his entire family is the exact same way.
The video made me laugh though, so I’m erring toward Father of the Year contention. I mean, all in all, it didn’t appear anyone was seriously hurt. I’d like to believe he would’ve stopped rolling if someone went down really, really hard.
Plus, his narration of the video and his daughter jumping into the car at the 3:30 mark to further make fun of the kids is hilarious.
I kind of felt bad for the kid who lost all his books, but then I immediately started laughing. Just couldn’t help it.
“Watch this kid, I guarantee you he’s gonna drill it,” he says, as the kid drills it. TFM.
