Is the Kenya Garissa University Attack Another Hoax?

Sandy Hook. Boston. Aka Obama. Is there a major news event of the last fifty years in which the mainstream media has NOT lied to us? Can anyone name one? Just one?

Study these photos and make your own conclusions.

image

Check out those “dead” bodies. See any blood? Where are the entry and exit wounds? How come no one has a single bullet hole?

image

Isn’t is a little strange that everyone is arranged in rows and they are all face down? Again, where are the bullet holes and entry/exit wounds?

image

Hmmn. Again no entry/exit wounds. No bullet holes in the wall or desks. Wait, look, that guy has his arm and knee raised up:

image

Supposedly, he’s dead. Have you even seen a dead person with their arm up in the air? If he’s alive why is no one helping him? If there’s time for a photographer to enter the scene, then certainly the emergency help must be there.

image

More bodies neatly arranged in a row where they supposedly all fell the same distance at the same time. No blood. No bullet holes. The guy closest to the camera looks to be resting his head on his hand.

image

Are we supposed to believe any of this? I’m not saying it’s real, I’m not saying it’s not. I’m just putting the pictures up for people to draw their own conclusions.

Austin Craigslist solicits crisis actors for emergency training exercise

Two days ago, an ad appeared on Austin, Texas’ Craigslist soliciting crisis actors (“role players”) at $10.10/hr. for a National Guard Training Exercise for Emergency Preparedness taking place in Govalle, Texas on April 22, 2015.

The ad was placed by an outfit called IIF Data Solutions.

Here’s a screenshot I took of the ad on austin.craigslist.org in case it gets scrubbed. The screenshot shows the date and time (bottom right) when I took the screen shot: 4/2/2015 at 2:25 PM.

Moulage may be as simple as applying pre-made rubber or latex “wounds” to a healthy “patient’s” limbs, chest, head, etc., or as complex as using makeup and theatre techniques to provide elements of realism (such as blood, vomitus, open fractures, etc.) to the training simulation.

Another false flag? Atlanta Craigslist solicits crisis actors for mock disaster

One

We know there are professional crisis actors. (See “Professional crisis actors simulate mass casualty events”)

Two

We know there are professional amputee crisis actors. (See ““)

Three

We have good reasons to suspect that crisis actors were deployed at Sandy Hook and the Boston Marathon Bombing. (See “Remarkable resemblance of Sandy Hook victims and professional crisis actors,” “Hollywood producer Nathan Folks says Boston Bombing’s a false flag,” and “The woman in red: Proof of Boston Bombing crisis actors“.)

Four

Days before the April 2, 2014 mass shooting at Ford Hood by Ivan Lopez, who killed 3, wounded 16, then committed suicide, there was a Craigslist ad soliciting “role players” for a “military mock simulated disaster” at Fort Hood on March 17-19, 2014. (Click image below to enlarge)

Ft Hood drill1

Five

Now an ad has appeared in Atlanta Craigslist, soliciting “role players” for a “mass casualty exercise” on June 27-29, which will involve faked injuries. (Calling amputee crisis actors!)

Here’s a screenshot I took of the ad. You can also see the ad for yourself by going here or http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/evg/4480330340.html (click image below to enlarge):

Atlanta Craigs List AdSo if any mass trauma event happens in the days after June 29, we will know it’s another false flag — “a contrived event” of “hyper-reality film-making.”

Update (June 25, 2014):

A Craiglist ad in Houston, Texas, was soliciting “crisis actors” for a “simulated government terror drill” on July 4-6, 2014. The actors will have to sign confidentiality agreement.

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:

Amputees in Action1Amputees in Action2Amputees in Action3Boston Bombing

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.

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.
