Spooky coincidences of Sandy Hook and Aurora massacres

This is a follow-up to our lowtechgrannie’s post of yesterday, “Two Mass Shooters and Banking Fraud?,” which debunked the rumor on the net that Peter Lanza and Robert Holmes — the fathers of mass murderers Adam Lanza and James Holmes, respectively — were both due to testify before the U.S. Senate on the Libor banking scandal. (Read more about the rumor hoax here). The Libor scandal refers to a number of high-profile banks misreporting interest rates on transactions.

Lanza, 20, is the alleged gunman who killed 20 first-graders and 6 adults in Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, last Friday. Holmes is the alleged gunman who killed 12 and wounded 58 moviegoers at a premier midnight showing of the third Batman movie, “The Dark Knight Rises,” in a Century theater in Aurora, Colorado, on July 20, 2012.

Michael Brown of Spirit Daily points to five other spooky coincidences of the Sandy Hook and Aurora massacres:

1. The name “Sandy Hook” is written on a map in the Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises” — the same movie shown in the Century theater in Aurora.

In “Dark Knight,” when plotters are determining where mayhem will erupt, police commissioner James Gordon (played by Gary Oldman) points to a map showing a targeted area identified as Sandy Hook, also known as “Strike Zone 1″ where Gotham Stadium is located. where there is a Sandy Hook Bay. (Source: Digital Journal)  While not Sandy Hook, Connecticut, it’s still kinda spooky that “Sandy Hook” is the only name penciled in large letters on the map.

2. Sandy Hook — a 6-miles-long barrier spit in Middletown Township in Monmouth County along the Atlantic Ocean coast of eastern New Jersey — was hit quite hard by last summer’s Hurricane Sandy. The barrier spit encloses the southern entrance of Lower New York Bay south of New York City.

3. The name “Aurora” appears on the top of a skyscraper in the backdrop of another scene in “Dark Knight.”

4. Suzanne Collins — the author of The Hunger Games, about young people who have to hunt down and kill each other, which was made into a recent movie with the same name – resides in Sandy Hook, Connecticut.

5. In the 1999 movie “The Matrix,” there’s a scene showing the passport of Neo expiring on September 11, 2001.

Are these mere accidental coincidences?

Are they instances of Swiss psychologist Carl Jung’s synchronicity? Synchronicity refers to temporally coincident occurrences of acausal events (i.e., the events are apparently not causally related) which reveal an underlying pattern or a larger framework.  If they are, what is the underlying pattern or larger framework?

Or are these not coincidences at all, but rather signs of a hidden hand manipulating events, which some attribute to the Illuminati or the shadowy Powers That Be?

You decide!

Donors to Congressman who wants U.S. schools to be like Muslim madrassas

André Carson (l) with wife and the POS

Remember André Carson, the Congressman who wants U.S. schools to be modeled after madrassas? A madrassa or madrasah is a Muslim school, college, or university that is often part of a mosque.

Steve Peacock reports for WND, July 21, 2012, that according to Federal Election Commission quarterly filings, thanks to large campaign donations, Rep. Andre Carson (D-Ind.) appears well-positioned, at least financially, to fend off Republican challenger Carlos May in November.

After a $206,000 infusion during the most recent period ending June 30, Carson’s total receipts for the 2011-2012 election cycle jumped to $778,000. Even with $531,000 in reported expenditures, Carson still has $490,000 in campaign cash remaining.

So who are the donors to Carson’s political campaign? They include:

U.S. Marshal Kerry Forestal

1. An Obama appointee, Kerry J. Forestal, whom the POS appointed in 2010 to be U.S. Marshal for the Southern District of Indiana. The following are Forestal’s known political donations to Carson:

  • $1,000 to Andre Carson for Congress, on Feb. 4, 2008. Carson defeated Republican John Elrod one month later in a special election to become one of the only two Muslims serving in Congress at the time.
  • $1,000 on June 30, 2009.
  • $1,000 on May 7, 2012.
  • More than financial contributions to Carson, Forestal and two other high ranking sheriff department officials also appeared in full uniform in political ads for Andre Carson. Forestal also hosted a fundraiser on St. Patrick’s Day with Carson.

2. Then-White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel, who donated $2,000 in May 2008.

3. Then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who donated $2,000 in February 2008.

4. The Council of American Islamic Relations California PAC gave Carson $5,000 in August 2008.

5. The Arab American Leadership Council PAC donated $2,000 in October 2008.

6. Other group donors to Andre Carson in 2008 included the NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) Fund for Children and Public Education ($10,000, followed by $4,000 in 2010, and $1,000 in 2011), NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC ($6,000), and Moveon.Org PAC ($5,000).

7. Unions, such as American Federation of State County & Municipal Employees People donated $28,000 over the past five years, and the American Federation of Teachers, AFL-CIO Committee on Political Education, which donated $27,500 during that time.

8. Hundreds of thousands of dollars combined have come to Carson from financial and corporate special interests such as the General Dynamics Corporation PAC, General Electric Company PAC, Duke Energy Corporation PAC, Bank of America Corporation Federal PAC, and dozens of others.
