Did you know there are AMPUTEE crisis actors?

I woke up this morning to wall-to-wall TV news on today’s Boston Marathon and last year’s bombings.

That reminded me of something I had meant to post about last year:

Amputee Crisis Actors

Yes, Virginia. Not only are professional “crisis actors” used in government drills and mass trauma events, some of them are actual amputees!

There’s an outfit called Amputees in Action, which describes itself as:

“a unique agency, working independently to provide the UK’s largest directory of trained professional amputee actors for the film and screen industries and for emergency and military services training simulations, both home and abroad.

Our personnel use their personal trauma experiences to enable graphic realism that is second to none, and our team of special effects (SFX) make-up, moulage and prosthetic artists use cutting edge technology to enhance and extend the appearance and function of limb-loss scenarios.”

On its “Emergency Services” page, Amputees in Action (AIA) says:

Most of our personnel have lost limbs as a direct result of a trauma incident, and are able to bring their experiences to your simulation with unique insight and acting in the field, remaining in character throughout. [...] Our SFX experts enhance the  amputee experience, replicating injuries beyond leg and arm injuries. We also recreate traumas like head and facial wounds, eviscerated abdomens and groin wounds.

Here are some images of AIA’s amputee crisis actors:

Oops. The 4th picture (above) was of Boston Marathon Bombing victim Jeff Bauman, not an amputee crisis actor.

Wait.

Why does Jeff Bauman look so much like former U.S. Army officer Lt. Nick Vogt who lost his legs in the Afghan war?

The strange purchase date and price of Sandy Hook homes

WARNING: This is a long post, so the reader may want to read it in installments. Make sure you bookmark this page so that, if you need to, you can return to finish reading this post.

________________

There are those in the blogosphere who maintain or at the very least suspect that the official story of the Dec. 14, 2012 Sandy Hook massacre isn’t true, and who have raised the matter of the rather strange sale date and price of the homes of some of the victims. See, for example, this discussion on a Godlike Productions chat forum.

Their hypothesis goes something like this:

If the massacre, wholly or in part, were a contrived conspiracy — for example, a drill (or a drill that went very bad) — then the major participants or “players” in the elaborate charade would have to be paid off in some way or another.

Indeed, a year ago, in February 2013, I had noticed the same thing — that some of the homes of Sandy Hook victims all had an odd sale/purchase date of 12/25/2009, and an equally odd sale/purchase price of $0.

I had found that information on the website of Vision Government Solutions (VGS), a company that calls itself “a leading supplier of land parcel management software technology and services to local government organizations, enabling efficient assessment, billing, collections, mapping, and permitting.” One of the services provided by VGS is an online database of residential properties in nine states in the northeastern and eastern U.S., one of which is the state of Connecticut. If you know the address of a home in, say, Newtown, CT, you can look up the property’s value, present owner(s), and price history on VGS’s database.

At the time, in February of last year, puzzled by those strange 12/25/2009 sale date and $0 sale price of Newtown homes, I had sent this email to VGS:

Date: 02/05/13 01:43 PM

Subject: Feedback from the Newtown, CT page

Hello, While browsing real estate properties using this database, I noticed a number of homes have the same “date of sale” of 12/25/2009, and a “sale price” of 0 (zero). Please be so kind as to explain. How can a home be sold or purchased for $0?

Thank you,

Dr. _____

This was the response I received:

Feb. 5, 2013

Thank you for your inquiry Dr ____. In most instances of a sale price of $0 the reason would be because of a family sale where the house ownership is simply transferred. [In other words, no money actually changed hands.] The other reason for that to happen would be a town entering a parcel into their database for the first time they must put a first owner and a sale price. Often times they will put $0 as a filler price. The sale date of 12/25/2009 would be the same thing.

Kind Regards,

In addition to emailing VGS, I had also called the Assessor’s Office at Newtown, CT, and left a voice mail asking the same question about the 12/25/2009 sale date and $0 sale price.

An administrative assistant at the Assessor’s Office, Andrea Santillo, promptly returned my phone call. She said that the Newtown city government recently had switched to a new computer system and had not been able to enter the property data for all Newtown homes. So the computer used the 12/25/2009 and $0 as, respectively, a “filler” default sale date and price.

Ms. Santillo’s explanation seemed plausible, and so I did not pursue the matter any further. But that doesn’t mean I’d forgotten about it.

Flash forward a year. I decided to revisit this matter, and went back to VGS’s database. Lo and behold, the strange sale date and price are still there.

So I undertook a systematic investigation into the properties of every Sandy Hook (SH) victim, as well as those of certain non-victims, such as Gene Rosen, who had a prominent media presence in the days immediately after the massacre. What follows is my report on my findings, beginning with my methodology.

Methodology

1. From media accounts, I made a list of the names of all SH victims, including:

  • The 20 school children who were killed, as well as the names of their parents.
  • The 7 adults who were killed: 6 at SHES; and Nancy Lanza, mother of alleged shooter Adam Lanza.

2. To that list, I added 6 more people who are not victims but had played significant roles in the aftermath of the massacre. They are:

  • Gene Rosen, who live next to SHES and gave many TV interviews.
  • Laura and Nick Phelps, parents of unharmed SHES students who gave media interviews and who bear a striking resemblance to professional “crisis actors” Jennifer Greenberg Sexton and Richard Sexton. (See “Remarkable resemblance of Sandy Hook victims and professional crisis actors“)
  • The three members of Newtown’s governing body, the Board of Selectmen: Elin Patricia Llodra, William Rodgers, and James Gaston Sr. (Newtown does not have a mayor.)

3. Using two people search engines, Email Finder and Spokeo, of which I am a paid member, I found the addresses of the people on the list.

4. I then looked up the price history of those addresses on four websites:

  • Vision Government Solutions.
  • Trulia, a real estate website.
  • Zillow, a real estate website. (Neither Trulia nor Zillow gives the names of property owners.)
  • Connecticut Town Clerks Portal, a website of land records — including Newtown’s — which allows only those who have paid a fee to search its records. Interestingly, after I had paid for a 24-hour access to the site, I got this message about Newtown: “The mortgages, liens and probate certificates of the town of Newtown are not available online at this time.”

Llodra is the First Selectman and head of Newtown’s 3-member Board of Selectmen who supervise the administration of the town. Like the other two board members (#21 and #22 below), Llodra was elected to a 2-year term (12/1/2011 to 12/1/2013), which means the three were in charge of Newtown at the time of the Sandy Hook massacre. All three were recently reelected to another 2-year term (12/1/2013 to 12/1/2015).

A year ago, when I looked up Ellin P. Llodra on people search engines, her address was listed as 90 Riverside Rd, Sandy Hook, CT 06482.

  2. Click “Connecticut” on left side of page. This will take you to:
  3. Online Database for the cities of Connecticut: http://www.vgsi.com/vision/Applications/ParcelData/CT/Home.aspx
  4. Scroll down until you see “Newtown.” Click “Newtown”.
  5. This will take you to the Assessors Online Database for Newtown, CT: http://data.visionappraisal.com/NewtownCT/DEFAULT.asp
  6. Click the box “Enter Online Database”.
  7. You’ll be taken to the “Property Assessment Search / Newtown CT” page: http://data.visionappraisal.com/NewtownCT/search.asp
  8. Type in the number and street name, then click “Search”.

TO CONCLUDE:

The homes of 15 of the 20 Sandy Hook child victims, 1-2 of the 7 adult victims, and all 6 of the Sandy Hook adult non-victims (the Phelps, Gene Rosen, the three Selectmen) have the mysterious sale date and $0 sale price.

At the very least, that is interesting. The three Selectmen are especially interesting because if the hypothesis is that the massacre was a contrived event, then Newtown’s highest governing body would have to be “in the know.”

Your guess is as good as mine as to what all those strange 12/25/2009 sale dates and $0 sale price mean. I’d appreciate input from readers of this blog who are in the real estate business and can shed some light on what the odd sale date and sale price mean.

Were Boston Marathon bombings a false flag? – Part 2: The bomb drill

Yesterday, in Part One of a planned series of posts exploring whether the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013 are a false flag event, I proposed that a signature attribute of a false flag operation is the co-occurrence of a government drill at the same time as the traumatic event and in around the same place.

The purpose of the concurrent drill is to provide special ops personnel (who are the real perpetrators of the false flag incident) and/or professional crisis actors with a cover story should they be seen or caught on film at the false flag event.

In this Part Two of the series, we will look at whether there was such a drill in Boston on that fateful day.

On April 15, 2013, during the Boston Marathon near the finish line at 666 Boylston Street, a bomb exploded at 2:49 p.m. EDT, killing three people and injuring 282 others. Here’s a photo showing the first blast on the right.

boston-marathon-bombing1

Thirteen seconds after the first blast, at 3:02 p.m., a second bomb exploded 180 yards down from the first explosion, also on Boylston Street. The photo below was taken from the perspective of the first explosion site, showing the second blast down the block.

Boston Marathon bombing

But what we’re not told is that there was a bomb drill on that same day and mere yards from the marathon’s finish line.

How do we know it?

Because the prestigious Boston Globe newspaper on April 15, 2013, at 12:53 p.m., tweeted that according to police, there would be “a controlled explosion” on the 600 block on Boylston Street, across from the Boston Public Library. Here’s a screenshot of the first Boston Globe tweet which I took from a YouTube video (scroll down for the video). I circled the time and date of the tweet in red:

Boston Globe drill tweet

Here’s another look at that tweet (5th from the top, circled in red):

Boston-Globe-Twitter-April-15-2013

Here’s a screenshot of the second Boston Globe tweet:

Boston Globe tweet2

You can verify the second tweet for yourself by going to the Boston Globe’s twitter site. Click here or go to https://twitter.com/BostonGlobe/status/323886879453892609.

In case that page is erased, here’s a screenshot I just took of the page, showing that as of 5:48 am, April 25, 2013 (bottom right of image, circled in yellow), the page is still accessible, showing the “controlled explosion” tweet. Click image below to enlarge!

Boston Globe twitter page

The “library” referred to in the tweet is the Boston Public Library. Its address is 700 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02116.

The Boston Public Library is across the street from the Marathon Sports Store. The store’s address is 671 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02116, and was just a little down from the Boston Marathon finish line. On April 15, 2013, the first bomb exploded right in front of the store.

Here’s a screenshot I took of Marathon Sports Store on Google Maps:

Marathon Sports Store

You can verify this for yourself by going to the Google Maps site for Marathon Sports Store (click here) and click on the left arrow to swivel left, you’ll see that the library is right across the street from the sports store. Here’s a screenshot I took of the Boston Public Library on Google Maps:

Boston Public Library

Here’s a video showing the tweets:

Note that both Boston Globe tweets were published at 12:53 p.m. on April 15, 2013 – 1 hour 56 minutes before the first bomb detonated at 2:49 p.m. EDT.

A “controlled explosion” is a method for detonating or disabling a suspected explosive device. Leaving aside the sheer insanity of a “controlled explosion” in the midst of a marathon, how are we to interpret the Boston Globe tweets, warning that according to “police” and “officials,” there will be “a controlled explosion” in the “600 block of Boylton Street” “opposite the library within one minute as part of bomb squad activities”?

Seems to me we have at least four choices to interpret the two utterly fascinating Boston Globe tweets:

  1. The “controlled explosion” referred to in the tweets was the first bomb that detonated in front of the Marathon Sports Store near the marathon finish line, which means Boston Police knew about the “terrorist” plot before hand.
  2. The “controlled explosion” referred to in the tweets was a planned bomb drill by the government pretending to be a terrorist bombing. Nobody was killed or injured.
  3. The “controlled explosion” was a bomb drill that went horribly wrong, resulting in real deaths and injuries.
  4. The Boston Globe made a mistake, twice. There was no “controlled explosion” scheduled that day on Boylston St.

I just found a site claiming that the Boston Globe tweets were not on EDT clock, which means the tweets were sent out after the two bombs had detonated, because police thought they’d have to do a “controlled explosion” of a suspicious package left at the site of the first bombing.

On the other hand, here’s Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis on April 15, 2013, being asked by a reporter about rumors of a bomb drill at the Marathon. The reporter asked Davis about a claim that “there were drills this morning for the same exact thing that happened,” i.e., the two bombings, and whether the government should have “given warning ahead of time.” Davis answered evasively: “As I said earlier, there was no specific intelligence … that anything was going to happen.” In other words, the police commissioner did not deny a bomb drill had been planned that day.

Alastair Stevenson is the cross country coach at the University of Mobile, Alabama (see him on the university’s athletics staff page, here). Stevenson is a veteran marathon runner and a percipient witness at the Boston Marathon. He said he saw bomb-sniffing dogs and bomb-squad police, and heard an announcement of a bomb drill before the blasts. Here’s a phone interview Stevenson did with Anthony Gucciardi:

Were Boston Marathon bombings a false flag? – What’s a false flag?

False flag! False flag!

That’s the cry on the Internet as soon as another traumatic incident of mass casualties occurs in the United States.

It is said that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were a false flag. Skeptics of the Sandy Hook school massacre suspect it was a false flag. The latest incident — that of the two bombings at the April 15th Boston Marathon — is no exception.

I was aware of the latest cries of “False flag!” but was very reluctant to explore their credibility because if proven to be true, I think my last remaining shred of trust in my government would be obliterated.

But the cries persist. Notwithstanding my reluctance, I am undertaking a series of posts to explore that subject — in as responsible and careful a manner as I am able and as the gravity of a “false flag” accusation demands. This is the first post in that series.

Of all my (too many) years of undergraduate and graduate schooling, hands down the most useful course I’d ever taken was one on epistemology and the philosophy of science, from which I learnt how to think clearly and intelligently.

Epistemology is simply a fancy word referring to that branch in Philosophy that studies the nature of human knowledge:

  • The four different types (or domains) of truth claims: Empirical; Analytical (Math & Logic); Metaphysical; and Normative.
  • The criteria we use to evaluate and determine the truth or falsity of any truth claim (which depends on whether the claim is empirical, analytical, metaphysical, or normative).

But before one can even begin to evaluate the truth or falsity of some proposition, we must first have a clear idea about what the proposition says.

In this case — on whether the Boston bombings were a false flag event — before we examine the evidence (or lack thereof), we must first define the term “false flag” and list the criterial attributes of what constitutes a false flag incident. The definition and criterial attributes, in turn, will serve as our standards against which to assess the evidence.

What’s a False Flag?

From Wikipedia:

The name “false flag” has its origins in naval warfare where a flag other than the belligerent’s true battle flag is used as a ruse de guerre. [...] False flag (or black flag) describes covert military or paramilitary operations designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities, groups or nations than those who actually planned and executed them. Operations carried during peace-time by civilian organizations, as well as covert government agencies, may by extension be called false flag operations if they seek to hide the real organization behind an operation.

As the term is used in contemporary America, a “false flag” incident is some traumatic public event that is:

  • False: The public are given an untruthful version of the event by the government and the media. The falsity can range from no one actually had been killed or hurt (it was all theater); to some of the alleged victims are real; to all the alleged victims are real but the alleged perpetrator(s) is a fall guy who was set up by the “real” conspirators behind the scenes.
  • Results in a “rallying around the flag” effect: Whatever the true nature of the “false flag” event, the objective is to arouse and manipulate the emotions (fear, anger, outrage, indignation) of the American people so that they’ll “rally around the flag” in an outburst of patriotism, supplying the current White House occupant and his (and his party’s) policies with their support and loyalty.

As an example, it is said the Sandy Hook massacre was a contrived event engineered to effect gun control. Conjectures about the massacre range from the extreme of no one in the school was killed (although Adam and Nancy Lanza were), to the 20 students and 6 adults of the school said to be killed really are dead but Adam Lanza wasn’t the killer (which would explain why Social Security had a date-of-death of Dec. 13, 2012 for him — one day before the massacre).

This blog on ZeroHedge lists governments from around the world that’ve admitted they carry out false flag terror.

What are some of the suggested signature attributes of a False Flag event?

1. Government officials and their mouthpieces use the incident to advance their policy agenda. This most certainly was and is the case with the Sandy Hook massacre. In the case of the Boston bombings, New York mayor Bloomberg already is using the bombings as a pretext, declaring that “our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution have to change” because of the bombings. (See also “Boston Bombing: Getting the sheeple used to the police state).

2. The co-occurrence of a government drill at the same time as the traumatic event and in around the same place. The purpose of the concurrent drill is to provide special ops personnel (who are the real perpetrators of the false flag incident) and/or professional crisis actors with a cover story should they be seen or caught on film at the false flag event. (See “Remarkable resemblance of Sandy Hook victims and professional crisis actors)

Indeed, the federal government’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) conducts HSEEP drills/exercises across America, in partnership with local/state governments. HSEEP refers to Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program. In the case of Sandy Hook, on the day of the shooting massacre at Sandy Hill Elementary School (SHES), Dec. 14, 2012, HSEEP conducted a “training course” drill, ”FEMA L-366 Planning for the Needs of Children in Disasters,” at 2800 Main Street, Bridgeport, CT, which is about 14 miles from SHES.

It is claimed that in the case of the Boston Marathon bombings, there was also a drill both before and during the marathon, and that suspicious-looking private military operatives were seen (and photographed) at the bombings.

3. Lastly, if we have evidence of outright fakery, for example, victims who supposedly were killed or wounded, but aren’t, then the event being a false flag is a no-brainer. Alas, clear and incontrovertible evidence is hard to come by, which is why some find significance in the odd behaviors of Sandy Hook parents, quickly switching from laughing and joking to near-choking on tears, and the absence of tears or of other signs of weeping, such as a red nose; and in memorial, donation, and other Sandy Hook massacre websites having a creation date that predates the massacre.

These subjects, and more, will be explored in my posts to come. So put your thinking caps on and stay tuned!
