FBI releases heavily-censored documents on Sandy Hook massacre

Wolfgang Halbig, a former state trooper and current school safety consultant, repeatedly has asked entirely reasonable questions about the alleged massacre of 20 students and 6 women at the Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012. In his quest for answers, Halbig has even invoked the Freedom of Information Act. (Go here to see his questions.)

To this day, however, Halbig has received no response, not even one, to his questions from local (Newtown) and state (Connecticut) officials, even when he personally posed the questions to the Newtown Board of Education, after traveling thousands of miles from his home in Florida. (See “Citizens confront Newtown Board of Education about Sandy Hook hoax”)

One of Halbig’s questions is:

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.

On April 24, 2014, Dave Altimari reports for The Hartford Courant that, in response to a Courant Freedom of Information (FOI) request, the FBI has released about 175 pages of documents from the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre investigation. The Courant submitted its FOI request in January 2014 after Connecticut state police had released its report.

Alas, the documents “released” by the FBI were “heavily blacked-out,” i.e., censored.

Of the 175 pages released, 64 were completely redacted (blacked-out). Of the remaining 111 pages, “most were heavily redacted.” Below is an example:

FBI report on SD

As you can see from the page above, it is nearly devoid of information other than that Adam Lanza allegedly was “a troubled kid” and “interested in Japanese techno music.”

Assuming that the other 110 “heavily-redacted” pages are like the page above, this means that the FBI’s release is almost devoid of information.

The Courant says “The names of all witnesses interviewed by federal agents have been removed and there are no references to attempts by federal authorities in Washington, D.C., to recover information from a computer disk that shooter Adam Lanza destroyed.”

That is most interesting because in the days immediately after the alleged massacre, we were told by the news media that Lanza had smashed the hard-drive of his computer. Despite that, the State of Connecticut’s Final Report on Sandy Hook included detailed descriptions of what the FBI presumably had retrieved from Lanza’s computer — about pedophiles, child porn, serial killers, and hatred toward his grandmother. You name the vile evil, he (allegedly) was into it.

Having been trained in scholarship and research, I prefer to see for myself the primary source instead of rely on a secondary account. But The Courant provided no link to the FBI documents.

A blog called Sandy Hook Facts & Research claims that “What [Courant reporter] Altimari fails to point out, or intentionally hides, is that the documents that the FBI released to the Courant were the same public record that had already been released in the final report. There was nothing new here; he could have written that article in December; but the Courant wanted to feed the ignorant.”

But Sandy Hook Facts & Research didn’t give a link to the FBI documents either. So I went on the FBI’s website and searched for the elusive Sandy Hook documents but found nothing. The closest is a page on “Shooting Incidents Reports” that contains a report on the Sandy Hook shooting which, as the FBI admits, was not authored by the FBI, but instead is the Connecticut state police’s report.

In other words, one year five months after the alleged massacre, the FBI still has not released its Sandy Hook report.

The FBI is a bureau within the Justice Department of the Obama administration. On August 21, 2010, Obama grandiloquently declared: ““The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are people with something to hide.”

What about the Sandy Hook massacre is the Obama administration hiding?

Only those who lie and deceive fear the light of day.

Citizens confront Newtown Board of Education about Sandy Hook hoax

Newtown Board of EducationNewtown Board of Education

On May 6, 2014, former state trooper Wolfgang Halbig (see “Sandy Hook massacre was a “contrived event,” says former state trooper Wolfgang Halbig”) and retired professor Jim Fetzer (who has written extensively about Sandy Hook for Veterans Today) were in town to confront the Newtown Board of Education about the alleged massacre of 20 students and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012.

Halbig had traveled far, all the way from Florida. There were others who also had traveled long distances to attend the board meeting.

This is what they said:

Halbig1. Wolfgang Halbig emphasized that he is a national school safety consultant and one of the first to donate money for the Sandy Hook tragedy, and that he had contacted the superintendent and other officials with questions, but received not even one response back, nor was even one document released despite Freedom of Information Act requests.

Halbig: “To this day, you have refused to answer phone calls, and you have refused to answer my FOI (Freedom of Information) requests. And you’re in public education…and you use the word ‘honesty’ in your presentation. Where’s the honesty in this room? No matter how tragic that event might have been, people in America deserve the truth…. The questions I ask are not offensive to any parent who lost a child that day. They’re not offensive to Connecticut state police. They’re not offensive to ANY ONE! They’re such simple questions! Why no trauma helicopters? Why would you not let paramedics or EMTs? These are your children and you won’t let paramedics and EMTs into the building? You got 27 children declared dead within 8 minutes? [Halbig meant 20 children and 6 adults] Who does this? … Ladies and gentlemen. You are the board members, you are the leaders of this community, you are the superintendent. Respond! You have a great secretary. But I sense that she’s afraid — she’s afraid to call me back. That should not be happening in any school district. We are not here to disrupt this meeting. We want the truth.”

Halbig then points out that the Newtown Board of Education say they’re teaching children about character, responsibility, and honesty, but by their actions, they’re “modeling” their lack of character, responsibility and honesty.

Fetzer2. (Beg. at 3:55 mark) Jim Fetzer said that during his research into Sandy Hook, he discovered that the school had 626 students. Subtracting the 20 who were killed that day, that leaves 606 students in the school. “Where were they on the day of this event?” Assuming a school bus seats 50 students, that means there should have been at least 12 buses. “But we don’t have footage or report of these large number of buses evacuating the students.”

Fetzer then lists some other reasons why “some people are skeptical of this event”:

  • The final report from the state police does not include the names and ages or sex of any of the victims.
  • The Newtown clerk entered into secret arrangements with the state legislature to avoid releasing any death certificates.
  • The state attorney general fought against the release of 911 calls.
  • Those involved in dismantling the school [after the massacre because of asbestos infestation] were subjected to lifetime gag order.

Fetzer: “All of this suggests that there is something there to hide.” Fetzer asks why and how those 626 students could be allowed to inhabit a school that was a “toxic dump” known to be loaded with asbestos and other biohazards, so infested that it was completely torn down after the shooting.

(See “Was Sandy Hook Elementary School already abandoned before the massacre?”and “Workers tearing down Sandy Hook school sworn to confidentiality”)

3. A Gulf War veteran (dressed in a Paul Revere costume) from New York said that within days after the Sandy Hook shooting, Connecticut passed one of the most restrictive gun control laws. He said he’s not saying the shooting didn’t take place, but he wants proof.

4. A man from Infowars did not dispute that Adam Lanza had perpetrated the shooting. Instead he emphasized how law-abiding gun owners in Connecticut and elsewhere are being “penalized” because of Sandy Hook, and the importance of the Second Amendment to freedom and the American way of life.

5. (Beg. at the 10:54 mark) A bespectacled man, with white hair and beard, “Dave Williams from Carson City, Nevada,” spoke about Second Amendment rights and the questions that Wolfgang Halbig had raised. He said, “If there’s nothing to hide, the best thing to do is disclose information and there’s no suspicion that something is being hidden. I don’t understand why he’s [Halbig] gone 11 months with legitimate requests and has received nothing.” Then he reminds the board that in our “information age” of websites like American Free Press, Infowars, and Veterans Today, the board members can disclose information to these sites with confidentiality.

6. (Beg. at 12:25 mark) A man from Rhode Island said he’s noticed “8 dozen, if not more, inconsistencies” about Sandy Hook. As an example, he questioned why there was no triage — carts on the ground, ambulances — at SH school, which normally would be undertaken at mass trauma events. But the school was blocked: no one could get in or out. Then the man put the board members on notice: “We’re here for a reason. And this is not going away. Like Benghazi won’t go away for Obama, this is not gonna go away, until you guys investigate this for yourself, find out the truth, and we all find it out together.”

7. (Beg. at 15:12 mark) Another man, with a grey beard and baseball cap, from New York, made the point that making public perpetrator Adam Lanza’s visage “at the scene” of the Sandy Hook shooting does not affect the reputations of Connecticut state politicians or police. He said, “Simply show the perpetrator at the scene” and Lanza’s autopsy “to prove that he really existed, besides a hat and a shirt.” “Why leave all these questions in the air when you have something that’s clearly been photographed, clearly available, and should be made available to the public” and put to rest “a lot of the controversy.”

accountable8.(Beg. at 16:16 mark) A dark-haired man, in a brown-and-tan striped sports shirt, from New Jersey, said he’d contacted several people about Sandy Hook — people who are good friends of his, in law enforcement (police departments and federal government) “who have experience analyzing evidence.” Dark-haired man said although he can’t share with the board what these people told him because they “would most likely lose their jobs,” what he can say is that according to what these people have shown him, “things do not add up.” “There are too many inconsistencies,” including images that have been altered, forensics, and police reports that don’t add up.

He said: “It’s getting to a point where more and more people in this country are realizing that there’s something wrong. I understand that there’s a lot of people who genuinely believe that more gun control is the answer. And when you genuinely believe in something, you reach a point where you’ll do anything to get to that objective. The end justifies the means. However, doing anything dishonest never ever justifies the means. And I will tell you that, if you receive orders that would be considered unlawful, YOU WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE.

The last two speakers were:

9. A woman, Michelle Murphy from Houston, Texas, who ranted about how all mentally ill people, especially bipolars (which she is), should not be judged by what “one deranged person,” Adam Lanza, had done.

10. A dark-haired man with a goatee identified himself as “Jim Fitzpatrick, a Newtown resident,” and said he was offended by the “circus” of conspiracy kooks (referring to Halbig, Fetzer, et al) attending the board meeting.

Note how polite Halbig, Fetzer, et al. were, only to be met with SILENCE and non-response from the board.

So Halbig, Fetzer, and the guy from Nevada, had traveled thousands of miles to attend this meeting, for nothing.

Halbig is right:

All the officials — school, town, state — will just continue to stonewall. The only way we can make them talk is if they’re sued in court.

Was Sandy Hook Elementary School already abandoned before the massacre?

In his recent interview with Wolfgang Halbig, the school safety consultant and former state trooper who calls the Dec. 14, 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting “a contrived scripted event” in the planning for 2-2½ years, Infowars reporter Dan Bidondi said something very intriguing (beginning at the 50:45 mark in the video below):

Bidondi said: “Was this whole thing [Sandy Hook shooting] staged? Was it real? You have neighbors reporting the school’s been closed down for God knows how long…. They can’t understand why there were kids in that building because it was condemned.”

Indeed, according to local paper The Newtown Bee, nearly 10 months after the shooting on October 5, 2013, a city referendum passed by over 90% authorizing Newtown to move forward with the demolition and rebuilding of Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) with a $49.25 million grant from the State of Connecticut. The Bee says: “Anticipating the referendum would pass, town officials already filed environmental paperwork with the state to move forward with asbestos abatement at the former school, which will dovetail with demolition crews who could be on site by the last week in October.”

What this means is that even without the alleged massacre, the school would have been demolished because of asbestos contamination.

In fact, a search of Newtown Bee‘s archives shows that the town had known about the school’s environmental problems for many years:

  • On October 2, 2002, The Bee reports that “The Newtown School District could be looking at a $29.5 million price tag to upgrade its mechanical systems and bring them to code at the four elementary schools and middle school over the next five to six years. Consulting Engineering Services (CES) was hired by the district to study the mechanical systems at Hawley School, Head O’ Meadow School, Middle Gate School, Newtown Middle School, and Sandy Hook School to evaluate the heating and ventilating infrastructure, temperature control, and to see what renovations would need to be performed to upgrade ventilation systems to meet indoor air quality codes. Sandy Hook School … is being recommended by CES to be worked on in 2010 over a nine-month period. It is estimated to cost $4.5 million for heating and ventilation and $400,000 for air conditioning.” That comes to about $5 million, which is puny compared to the $49.25 million state grant Newtown received after the alleged shooting massacre for the demolition and rebuilding of the school. 
  • On April 7, 2003, the Bee reported that “Some studies suggest that as many as 68 percent of school district’s have ‘sick’ buildings ranging from mold to asbestos, radon, pesticides, and the use of improperly ventilated areas as classroom space. For the past five years, teachers in Connecticut have had the highest rate of occupational asthma when compared to other professions.
  • On March 26, 2004 , the Bee reported that “the Board of Education … received the bad news that there were serious problems with the Sandy Hook elementary school roof.”
  • And then there’s this curious Newtown Bee article of November 7, 2008, 4 years before the alleged shooting massacre: “The asbestos levels in Newtown schools pose no threat to the health or safety of those using the schools, according to Superintendent John Reed. The areas in the schools where there is evidence of asbestos … are also considered acceptable and safe.”
  • On October 12, 2012, two months before the alleged school shooting, there’s this curious letter from reader Charles Hepp to The Newtown Bee about a plan to close an elementary school due to declining enrollment. Hepp wrote, “Six months ago, in April 2012, our Board of Ed voted unanimously to accept a study which laid out a plan for closing an elementary school … the study found that, should our elementary school population fall below 1,500, the BOE should look towards closing an elementary school. We are currently at approximately 1,650 elementary school students.”
  • But then a year after the alleged massacre and after the school had been completely torn down with the demolition workers sworn to confidentiality, The Bee reported on Dec. 2, 2013 that Public Building & Site Commission Chairman Robert Mitchell issued a report that directly contradicts the earlier 2008 assessment that asbestos levels in Newtown’s schools posed no threat to health. Mitchell’s report said “had the town decided to reoccupy the [Sandy Hook Elementary] school on Dickinson Drive, it would have faced a daunting and possibly insurmountable challenge regarding the presence of hazardous materials” because “PCBs were not only discovered in concrete block, but under terrazzo flooring and in sulfur block used in the foundations and footings. In addition, vinyl asbestos tile was discovered under carpeted areas, along with asbestos in the mastic holding insulation to the subfloor tunnel ductwork.”

In a video that you can watch on YouTube, a man who calls himself “Jungle Surfer” claims to have found “proof” that Sandy Hook Elementary School was closed 5 years before the alleged massacre. Using the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine, Jungle Surfer says he found no Internet activity from the location of SHES at 12 Dickenson Dr, Sandy Hook, CT 06482.

Below is a screenshot I took of the Wayback Machine showing the school’s lack of Internet activity since the beginning of the year 2008 through 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. You can also see it for yourself by going here.

SHES on Wayback MachineReader “Christopher Marlowe” wrote this comment on March 7, 2014, on a blog that posted Jungle Surfer’s video on the Wayback Machine:

The proof is sublime. The wayback machine isn’t perfect, but it doesn’t lie. The site was accessed each year, from 2000 to 2008, and then NOTHING until 2013.

The wayback machine uses the googlebot crawls to preserve pictures of the site on a given day. (Brief research reveals that the bots record a snapshot when the site is updated, but my own testing shows that there is a heavy tie-in to the amount of web traffic….)

Other dead sites show a drop-off similar to what we see in the sandy hoax school:

Another indicator of whether Sandy Hook Elementary School had been abandoned BEFORE the alleged massacre are photos taken by the crime scene investigators of the interior of the school.

What follows is a sample of photographs of the alleged crime which I’d culled from “22 Assorted Files” on the (Connecticut) Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection’s website on Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting Reports. (An easier way to view the photos is to go to the Sandy Hoax Facebook page. Click here.)

The following crime scene photos will be interspersed with relevant quotes from the State of Connecticut’s Final_Report on Sandy Hook published on Nov. 25, 2013, titled Report of the State’s Attorney for the Judicial District of Danbury on the Shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School and 36 Yogananda Street, Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012. All page references are to the Final Report.

1. The photos were taken at the crime scene in the course of 7 days beginning on the day of the shooting:

On the afternoon of December 14, 2012, the WDMC (Connecticut State Police Western District Major Crime) and CDMC (Central District Major Crime) van units began documenting the crime scene and collecting evidence. The units could not begin this process until the scene was declared safe. The scene processing took seven days. The scene was thoroughly processed, with the WDMC van unit handling the interior of SHES and the CDMC van unit covering the exterior. This processing included extensive written documentation as well as taking videos and thousands of photographs and measurements. In addition to the recovery of evidence, bullet trajectories were analyzed and documented.” (p. 16)

2. The Final Report’s “Executive Summary” states:

“On the morning of December 14, 2012, the shooter [Adam Lanza], age 20, heavily armed, went to Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) in Newtown, where he shot his way into the locked school building with a Bushmaster Model XM15-E2S rifle. He then shot and killed the principal and school psychologist as they were in the north hallway of the school responding to the noise of the shooter coming into the school. The shooter also shot and injured two other staff members who were also in the hallway.

The shooter then went into the main office, apparently did not see the staff who were hiding there, and returned to the hallway.

After leaving the main office, the shooter then went down the same hallway in which he had just killed two people and entered first grade classrooms 8 and 10, the order in which is unknown. While in those rooms he killed the two adults in each room, fifteen children in classroom 8 and five in classroom 10. All of the killings were done with the Bushmaster rifle.

He then took his own life with a single shot from a Glock 20, 10 mm pistol in classroom 10. [...]

It is the conclusion of this State’s Attorney that the shooter acted alone and was solely criminally responsible for his actions of that day. Moreover, none of the evidence developed to date demonstrates probable cause to believe that any other person conspired with the shooter to commit these crimes or aided and abetted him in doing so.

Unless additional – and at this time unanticipated – evidence is developed, there will be no state criminal prosecution as result of these crimes. With the issuance of this report, the investigation is closed.” (pp. 1-3)

3. How Adam Lanza gained entrance into the school:

“On the morning of December 14, 2012 … Shortly after 9:30 a.m. he approached the front entrance to the school. He was armed with a Bushmaster Model XM15-E2S rifle (also Bushmaster rifle), a Glock 20, 10 mm pistol and a Sig Sauer P226, 9 mm pistol and a large supply of ammunition. The doors to the school were locked, as they customarily were at this time, the school day having already begun. The shooter proceeded to shoot his way into the school building through the plate glass window to the right of the front lobby doors … at approximately 9:35 a.m.” (p. 9)

SHES6An inside view of the glass window, with a bigger pile of shattered glass inside.

4. Shootings in the school’s hallways:

“The main office staff reported hearing noises and glass breaking at approximately 9:35 a.m. and saw the shooter, a white male with a hat and sunglasses, come into the school building with a rifle type gun. The shooter walked normally, did not say anything and appeared to be breathing normally. He was seen shooting the rifle down the hallway. … As the staff member left the room, the staff member heard gunshots and saw [Principal] Mrs. Hochsprung and [School Psychologist] Mrs. Sherlach fall down in front of the staff member. The staff member felt a gunshot hit the staff member’s leg. Once down, the staff member was struck again by additional gunfire, but laid still in the hallway. Not seeing anyone in the hallway, the staff member crawled back into room 9 and held the door shut. A call to 911 was made….

At the same time the shooter was firing in the hallway, another staff member was at the far east end of the hallway near classroom 1. The staff member was struck by a bullet in the foot and retreated into a classroom.

Both Dawn Hochsprung, age 47, and Mary Sherlach, age 56, died as a result of being shot. Both wounded staff members shot in the hallway were later evacuated to the hospital and survived.” (pp. 9-10)

_______________

Note: So there were two wounded adults, but we’ve only been told of one, Natalie Hammond (See “Who, Where are the Sandy Hook wounded?”).

_______________

Here are some photos of SHES’s hallways:

SHES2SHES3SHES4SHESSHES15. Shootings in Classrooms 8 & 10:

“The evidence and witness statements establish the shooter went down the hallway in an easterly direction ultimately entering first grade classrooms 8 and 10. The order is not definitively known. While in classrooms 8 and 10, the shooter shot and killed four adults and twenty children with the Bushmaster rifle. Twelve children survived, one from classroom 8 and eleven from classroom 10. The shooter finally killed himself in classroom 10 with one gunshot to his head from a Glock 20, 10 mm pistol. This is believed to have occurred at 9:40:03. … In all, eighteen children and six adult school staff members were found deceased within the school. Two more children were pronounced dead at Danbury Hospital. Two other adult school staff members were injured and were treated at nearby hospitals and survived.” (p. 10)

Recall that Lanza had shattered the glass window at 9:35 am and killed himself at 9:40:03, which means we are to believe that this young man, afflicted with Asperger Syndrome (Wolfgang Halbig says those with Asperger typically have very poor motor skills), shot and killed 26 people in 5 minutes.

6. Photos of bullet holes:

7. Photos of the school’s classrooms:

Note the clean carpets and floors, the absence of blood spatter, how in some rooms everything is stacked along the sides and the windows (creating a fire hazard), while other rooms are so cluttered, which also creates a fire hazard.

8. Bullets:

You may think: “Maybe the Connecticut State Police had cleared some of the classrooms, pushing stuff to the sides of the room, before they took the photos.” But then, there are many photos (like the one below) of bullets next to yellow crime scene markers, which suggest the photos of the classrooms had been taken as they were, without disturbing or altering the crime scene.

9. Photo of Nancy Lanza’s bedroom:

The Final Report says that “Prior to going to the school, the shooter used a .22 caliber Savage Mark II rifle to shoot and kill his mother in her bed at the home where they lived at 36 Yogananda Street in Newtown.” (p. 3)

Nancy Lanza's bedNancy Lanza had lived in that home for many years, a pricey home in an affluent neighborhood. How could her bedroom walls be bare of pictures, paintings or mirrors?

As seen in these photos, does Sandy Hook Elementary School look to you to be an actual active school or does it look abandoned or decommissioned?

The curious parents of Sandy Hook child victim Noah Pozner

We are told that on the morning of December 14, 2012, a single gunman, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, for no discernible reason, barged into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

There, despite his “very poor muscle tone” and “very very poor motor skills” which typify those afflicted with Asperger syndrome, Lanza managed to shoot to death 20 first-graders and 6 adults in less than 5 minutes.

That’s just one of the reasons why many now believe the Sandy Hook shootings to be what former state trooper Wolfgang Halbig calls “a contrived event.”

In addition to the parents’ absence of signs of grief, the resemblances of Sandy Hook people to crisis actors, the RIP and donation sites that were created days before the massacre, the strange Social Security Death Index for Lanza that said he had died a day before the massacre, and the continuing lack of transparency from state officials, here’s another oddity: 6-year-old child victim Noah Pozner‘s parents.

Put simply, Noah’s mom Veronique may not be who she says she is. And Noah’s dad, Lenny, is dissembling about his son’s photos, allegedly taken a month apart.

Noah’s mother: Veronique Haller Pozner

Veronique PoznerNoah’s mom, Veronique Haller Pozner, waves to the assembled media as she leaves after the funeral service in Fairfield, Conn. (AP) Her 6-year-old boy was shot “multiple times,” with his jaw blown away, but this mother had the presence of mind to put on rouge, eye makeup, and red lipstick just 3 days later.

On December 17, 2014, three days after the massacre, the funeral service for little Noah was held in Fairfield, Connecticut, where his body reportedly laid in an open casket — a simple brown wooden casket with a Star of David on it.

Since the service was closed to the news media, Noah’s maternal uncle, Alexis Haller, was the source of information about the funeral. An outspoken advocate for gun control who lives in Seattle, Washington, Haller told the Associated Press, “If Noah had not been taken from us, he would have become a great man. He would have been a wonderful husband and a loving father.”

Bizarrely, Noah’s mother, Veronique Haller Pozner, who herself is a gun control advocate, later accused her brother Alexis of speaking without her authorization.

Veronique also told the Jewish Daily Forward that she’d made the painful decision to have an open casket for her son’s wake in order to show people the “ugliness” of gun violence. She said, “We all saw how beautiful he was. He had thick, shiny hair, beautiful long eyelashes that rested on his cheeks. He looked like he was sleeping. But the reality of it was under the cloth he had covering his mouth there was no mouth left. His jaw was blown away.”

The press tells us Veronique is an oncology nurse. Naomi Zeveloff reports for Forward, Dec. 26, 2012, that “On the morning of December 14, Veronique was at the medical center where she works as an oncology nurse when she received an automated text message alerting her that there was a reported shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. … Veronique drove at 80 miles per hour to the school, praying that her car’s faulty engine would hold up.”

Reporter Zeveloff did not name the medical center, but an article in USA Today of Dec. 18, 2012, says “Veronique Pozner was at work at Grove Hill Medical Center in New Britain, 38 miles from the Sandy Hook school, administering chemotherapy to cancer patients when a patient got an alert about the Sandy Hook shootings, said Doreen Berube, the office administrator. Pozner, an oncology nurse, came to Berube and said simply, ‘I’ve got to go.”’

I searched Grove Hill Medical Center’s website for both Veronique Pozner and Doreen Berube, but found nothing.

I did find a barebones page for Veronique Pozner on LinkedIn (see below), which says she is a registered nurse at Grove Hill Medical Center in New Britain, CT, but gives no information as to her education, which is odd.

Veronique Pozner on LinkedInOdder still, Pozner’s LinkedIn page as 0 connections. Frankly, I know of no one who’s on LinkedIn with zero connections. That defeats the purpose of having a LinkedIn page because LinkedIn is a career-oriented social networking site for professionals and business people.

However, as some bloggers discovered, there is a Veronique Haller, identified on the website of the Swiss-American Chamber of Commerce as the Legal Counselor for the Swiss Embassy in Washington, D.C.! Veronique Haller, however, is not on LinkedIn.

Veronique HallerNoah’s dad: Leonard (“Lenny”) Pozner

The USA Today article describes Veronique Haller Pozner as a single mom of five: two older children (a daughter and a son) from her first marriage, and three younger children from her second marriage to Lenny Pozner — a daughter Sophia, and twins Noah and Arielle.

According to the account in Forward, in 2005, Veronique and Lenny had relocated to Newtown from nearby Bethel (they had previously lived in Westchester.)

Oddly, although Lenny is the father of Noah, he did not attend his slain son’s funeral. Instead, after the Jewish shiva mourning period, Lenny “went to be with family in Florida.”

But Lenny Pozner did upload photos of Noah to his Google Plus account, which blogger Timothy Hunter discovered. Hunter noticed that Noah’s hair length was very different in two photos that were taken just a month apart.

Here’s the first photo from Lenny’s Google Plus account, taken on 1/25/2012 (click below image to enlarge):

Let’s compare Noah Pozner in the two photos, supposedly taken a month and a day apart (see below). Noah #2 sure has a lot more and much longer hair than Noah No. 1. In just a month!

Noah Pozner

When Hunter points out that hair doesn’t grow that fast in just a month, Lenny Pozner actually responded to Hunter with the lame explanation that Noah’s hair was so much longer in the 2-26-2012 pic because the boy was wearing a wig.

Pozner3Oh, puleeze.

Why would anyone put a wig on a 6-year-old boy?

Hunter’s guess is that Lenny had uploaded a bunch of Noah’s younger pictures to his Google Plus account to give “the illusion that they were living normal lives up until the event [Sandy Hook massacre] took place.” That would explain why Noah’s hair managed to “grow” INCHES in just a month.

It’s all a ruse.

In Hunter’s words: “The alleged victims of Sandy Hook would have to be years older than we were told by the media for this hoax to work, and all credible evidence points to this fact – the Photoshopped pictures, their likenesses (only a few years older) appearing at the Super Bowl, and the appearance of their likenesses in a 2006 album called End Times.”

Here’s Hunter on the Noah photos and Lenny’s lame explanation:

Why are there no Sandy Hook lawsuits?

One of the questions former state trooper and nationally-recognized school safety consultant Wolfgang W. Halbig asks is why there hasn’t been not even one lawsuit by a Sandy Hook parent against Sandy Hook Elementary School for negligence. Halbig has never ever seen a school shooting without parents suing the school for negligence. 

Below is an excellent article by my friend, Dean Garrison of The D.C. Clothesline, asking the same question. Highly recommend!

Why are there NO SANDY HOOK VICTIM’S LAWSUITS?

What are the odds, in today’s world, of 26 victimized families ALL deciding not to sue a multi-millionaire who is a seemingly easy target?

Peter Lanza has a lot of money. Whether you believe he is responsible for the actions of his son, or not, you can not deny that the man is loaded by most people’s standards. Are you aware that he was paying Nancy Lanza over $250,000 a year to take care of Adam?

Our best clue of his actual salary comes from Yahoo:

But where is the father’s culpability in all of this? The General Electric financial executive, who makes over a million dollars a year helping his company evade taxes, has so far gotten a pass from the media and the public.

Before I go on, I want to note that I do not believe that Peter Lanza should be sued and many of our readers will not either. But in today’s world when people see dollar signs and opportunity they jump. I just find it very odd that none of those 26 families are suing.

I should also note that one lawsuit did surface after the shooting. It was subsequently dropped and was not from a family of one of the deceased. On January 2, 2013 (less than a month after the incident) CNN reported:

Outcry over a request for permission to sue the state of Connecticut for millions of dollars in the aftermath of the Newtown shooting prompted a New Haven attorney to at least temporarily withdraw his client’s petition, the attorney said Tuesday.

“I was getting hundreds of (Facebook) comments” about the potential lawsuit. “So I figured I’d take (the request) off the table for now,” said Irving Pinsky, who represents the parents of a 6-year-old survivor of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook elementary school.

Last week, Pinsky said in his filing that the state had failed to protect his client from what he described as “foreseeable harm.”

That is the only evidence I can find of any associated lawsuits, and I know of none by the families of the deceased. How odd is this? Very odd if you compare it to…

Columbine

It would seem that there is some precedent for suing the parents of shooters. That is why I mentioned that Peter Lanza seemed to be an “easy target.” After the dust began to clear on the Columbine lawsuits, ABC reported:

Most of the families of the victims in the Columbine massacre two years ago today settled their lawsuits against the parents of the gunmen.

Thirty of the 36 families whose relatives were either killed or injured by Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris in the April 20, 1999, school shooting agreed to participate in a settlement for a total of $1.56 million, according to Stephen Wahlberg, who led the families’ attorneys in the case. A judge will determine how the money is distributed.

Six of the families whose children were killed in the shootings opted not to settle. They are still pursuing suits against the Klebolds and Harrises, lawyers said.

Do you think that an attorney might advise a family to sue based on the results of Columbine litigation? To be fair, not all of these mass shootings have gained the same results as the Columbine suits, but ALL of them featured multiple lawsuits from families of the deceased. Let me share the info I have for the Virginia Tech shooting and the Aurora theater shooting as well.

Virginia Tech

Two of the victim’s families sued the school. Originally they received a positive ruling but lost later on appeal. The Courant notes:

The Virginia Tech lawsuit exemplifies a case that provided some closure and redress for two grieving families — the parents of deceased students Erin Peterson and Julia Pryde. In the Virginia Tech tragedy, a student, Seung-Hui Cho, murdered two of his classmates in one of the Virginia Tech dormitories. Roughly 21/2 hours later, Cho broke into one of the university’s classroom buildings and gunned down an additional 30 students and professors before killing himself. Families of the deceased students brought suit, alleging that school officials knew many facts about the first killing and there was sufficient time before the mass killing for the officials to warn the university community of the danger.

The court agreed with the plaintiffs, finding school officials responsible. Although this finding was overturned on appeal, the Virginia Tech lawsuit exemplifies a school shooting case that delved into the facts of a tragedy, answered some important questions for the grieving families and provided some closure.

Aurora Theater Shooting

Ten families of the deceased victims of alleged shooter James Holmes are still in process of suing the theater, and received a ruling to move forward from a judge in April of 2013. Hollywood Reporter revealed:

After the shooting tragedy last July 20 in Aurora, Colorado, during a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises, families of those hurt or killed looked for someone to blameJames Holmes is being charged with the criminal act of murders and attempted murder, but that wasn’t enough for several victims. Ten separate lawsuits were filed against Cinemark, the owner of the theater where the shooting took place, which responded by saying that it couldn’t have foreseen a shocking criminal act.

On Wednesday, U.S. District Court judge Richard Brooke Jackson considered whether the lawsuits should proceed.

In a personal note within his opinion, Jackson writes, “I suspect that many people, despite overwhelming sympathy and grief for the victims of the Aurora theater shootings, might upon hearing about these lawsuits have had reactions like, ‘how could a theater be expected to prevent something like this?’ I confess that I am one of those people.”

But the judge quickly adds that the lawsuits “present difficult questions of interpretation and application of law,” and calling it a “close call,” he has decided that Cinemark should continue to face questions about its responsibility for the mass shooting last year.

Looking at three similar tragedies it would seem that the lack of legal actions in the wake of Sandy Hook are certainly an anomaly. It proves nothing in and of itself. It is however just another in a long line of Sandy Hook anomalies. The arguments against the conspiracy and/or cover up have become weaker with time. No longer can many people deny the oddities. You can not explain things like The Associated Press using predated photos that were taken days, weeks, months and even years before the tragedy took place.

More often than not I hear a single recurring argument now… Do you know how many people would have to be complicit for them to pull something like this off?

Indeed.

Californians defy new gun-control law inspired by Sandy Hook

A dictatorial government is resisted actively (via protests and armed insurrection) or passively via noncompliance.

California is a notoriously “liberal” blue state, and the San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California is teeming with Progressives, Democrats, and leftwingers. Of course, that doesn’t mean EVERY Californian is a leftist.

Gun owners in the Bay Area are defying a new law banning high-capacity magazines with passive resistance.

American Revolution

Inside Bay Area reports that California state law has banned making, selling, giving and lending magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds since 2000. But those who owned them before 2000 were allowed to keep them.

In November 2013, 67% of voters in Sunnyvale, a city in Silicon Valley in south Bay Area, approved a gun-control Measure C banning high-capacity magazine no matter when they were acquired. Owners of such magazines are supposed to turn them in to the police for destruction, sell them out of state or to a licensed gun dealer, or move the banned magazines out of town.

The measure survived a series of legal challenges seeking to keep it from taking effect. So at midnight on March 6, 2014, anyone who possessed a magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds was committing a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $1,000, six months in jail or both.

But Sunnyvale police say nobody has showed up at the city’s Department of Public Safety to turn over their magazines.

Sunnyvale city spokeswoman Jennifer Garnett dismissed the possibility that many owners are simply ignoring the new ordinance, saying, “The magazines have a value so it’s not surprising at all that people would consider alternatives like selling them versus turning them in to Public Safety. Barring any unusual circumstances, we wouldn’t cite people for voluntarily turning in their large capacity magazines to Public Safety even though it is legally possible at this time to cite them.”

San Francisco approved a similar ban last year, but San Francisco police Sgt. Eric O’Neal said his department has no system to track whether any magazines have been turned in for destruction under the new ordinance.

What is even more fascinating is that the AP story on this says:

The two California cities [Sunnyvale and San Francisco] enacted laws similar to several other municipalities banning magazines that hold more 10 bullets in reaction to the 2012 mass-shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

This is the same AP (Associated Press) whose news photos on the Sandy Hook massacre turn out to be pre-dated, that is, the pictures had actually been created days, months, and in some cases, years BEFORE Adam Lanza allegedly shot to death 20 six-year-olds and 6 adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012.

So, you see, the Sandy Hook false flag is about gun control and is successful.

Sandy Hook deception: Associated Press stories & photos predate the massacre

Remember those heartbreaking RIP, Facebook, donation, and fundraiser webpages that were created several days BEFORE the actual massacre on Dec. 14, 2012, of 20 kids and 6 adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT? (See here and here.)

Remember that guide by the Crisis Management Institute on how to talk to children about Sandy Hook which was created four days BEFORE the massacre?

We were told that those pre-dated webpages, websites, and documents were merely due to computer glitches.

But what if I tell you that we have evidence of pre-dated Sandy Hook photos from none other than the venerable Associated Press? And that we’re not talking about one or two, but LOTS of photos? Nor is this about photos predated by a few days, but by MONTHS and YEARS?

Would you still say, “Pfft. It’s just a computer glitch”?

Are you ready?

*****************

Sipa Press is a French photo agency based in Paris and the leading photo agency in the world with 20 million pictures in its archives and 12 million in its digital database. Sipa Press distributes up to 6.000 newspictures every day — on politics, economy, entertainment and sports — to customers in more than 40 countries across the world. Sipa’s most important associates are the Associated PressRex Features in the United Kingdom and La Presse in Italy.

A blogger named Timothy Hunter gained access to Sipa Press‘ archives through his school. Hunter’s access ended “last semester,” but not before he was able to discover and record stunning evidence that many of the photos the Associated Press (AP) supposedly had taken on the Sandy Hook massacre had dates-of-creation that predated December 14, 2012.

This is Hunter’s video, presenting and describing his findings.

Like many people, I prefer a textual instead of a video account because:

  • I simply don’t have the time or patience to sit and watch a long video (Hunter’s is 21:27 minutes long); and
  • I’m better able to evaluate and retain the information from a textual account.

For those reasons, I’ve taken screenshots from Hunter’s video to re-state his findings as a post (click screenshot to enlarge). You can also read Hunter’s presentation of his findings on his Hunter News & Media blog.

AP stories with predated Google time stamps:

AP1

Note that:

1. The Google time stamp for the “‘Always smiling': Portraits of Conn. victims” AP story is November 18, 2012, which was 26 days before the Sandy Hook massacre when those “Conn. victims” actually became victims.

2. The Google time stamp for the “Colorado suspect was brilliant science student” AP story is June 15, 2012, which was 1 month 5 days before “brilliant science student” James Holmes became the “suspect” for the shooting deaths on July 20, 2012, of 14 and the wounding of another 50 people in a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado.

3. The Google time stamp for the “Boston bombing suspect buried in Virginia cemetery” AP story is February 17, 2010, which was a whopping 3 years 1 month and 28 days before Tamerlan Tsarnaev supposedly set off two bombs at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013.

Lest you think the Nov. 18, 2012 Google time stamp for the “Always smiling: Portraits of Conn. victims” AP story was a mere computer glitch, that AP story was reposted by Suntimes.com, with a publication date of Nov. 20, 2012 — 24 days before the actual Sandy Hook massacre:

AP3

And here’s another heartbreaking AP story, “Conn. Victims: Lively Youngsters, Devoted Adults,” being picked up by two other news media, abcnews and mysuncoast, with publication dates of Jul 22, 2012 and Nov 30, 2012, respectively — both well before the actual Sandy Hook massacre in which those “lively youngsters” and “devoted adults” had their lives tragically cut short:

Predated AP photos on Sandy Hook child victims -

with photo creation dates of June 15, 2012; Nov. 23, 2012; and Dec. 12, 2012 — which are, respectively, 6 months; 21 days; and 2 days BEFORE the tragic child “shooting victims” actually became “victims“:

Predated AP photos on aftermath of Sandy Hook massacre:

The following are a sample of AP photos of the immediate aftermath of the Sandy Hook massacre, which Timothy Hunter had found in Sipa Press’s archives, every one of which has a creation date BEFORE the Dec 14, 2012 date of the massacre.

1. Here’s an AP photo of “a young girl” being “comforted following a shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, about 60 miles northeast of New York City” on Friday, December 14, 2012. Alas, the photo’s creation date is Dec. 13, 2012 — one day BEFORE the shooting:

AP8

2. Here’s a touching photo of first-graders at Devers Elementary School in York, releasing 26 balloons into the sky on Dec 21, 2012 “in memory of those who were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School.” The only problem is the photo’s creation date was Dec. 12, 2012 — two days BEFORE the school massacre.

AP4

3. Another AP photo from the same Devers Elementary School children releasing 26 balloons, blah blah blah, with the same creation date of Dec 12, 2012, two days BEFORE the massacre:

AP5

4. Here’s a touching AP photo of a bouquet of flowers next to a sheet, painted with the words “We ♥ You Sandy Hook Elementary,” tied to a freeway overpass. The photo supposedly was taken on Dec. 15, 2012, a day after the massacre. Alas, the photo’s creation date was Dec. 12, 2012, two days BEFORE the massacre:

AP12

5. Here’s a touching photo of a woman embracing a priest after attending a prayer service at the Newtown United Methodist Church on the day of the Sandy Hook massacre. Alas, the photo’s creation date is July 10, 2008 — more than 4 years BEFORE the massacre!AP14

6. Another AP photo of people embracing at the same prayer service at the Newtown United Methodist Church, with the same creation date of July 10, 2008:

AP15

7. Here’s yet another AP photo of the prayer service, also with the same creation date of July 10, 2008:

AP10

8. Here’s an AP photo of two police officers blocking off “a section of Yogananda Street near a house belonging to the mother of a man who opened fire inside a Connecticut elementary school, killing 26 people, including 16 (or 18?) children, Friday, Dec. 14, 2012 in Sandy Hook, Conn.”. Alas, the photo’s creation date is also July 10, 2008, which was more than 4 years before Adam Lanza, who lived in 36 Yogananda St., killed those 26 people:

AP11

Lest you think that the pre-dating of the above AP photos was just all a mistake — a computer glitch — a commenter named ljcahoe1 on Timothy Hunter’s video on YouTube wrote this:

Here’s something interesting about all the pictures at 21:03, It starts off with a picture labeled “Labor Day” with a created date of 9/4/2006.  I googled that date and labor day did fall on that date so the create date was correct at 9/4/2006.  Then they show all of the Connecticut School shooting photos with all of the different create dates and ends with a photo labeled “UCONN first night basketball” with a created date of 10/14/2011.  I googled that date and UCONN did have a basketball game on that date so that tells me that the “create date” is when the picture is uploaded into their database. I’m now of the opinion that all of these false flags are planned out years in advance.

Hunter had uploaded his video onto YouTube more than a year ago on Jan. 5, 2013. He says that since his discovery, as well as a post on this same AP deception on the blog InsaneMedia, the AP changed the dates and deleted content of the incriminating photos.

More troubling still, Insane Media is no longer accessible even via Google Cache. If you click the preceding “Google Cache” link for Insane Media’s AP photos post, you’ll get this message:
