Wolfgang Halbig has stunning evidence that Sandy Hook Elementary School was closed months before ‘massacre’

We are told that on December 14, 2012, a lone gunman, Adam Lanza, went to Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) in Newtown, Connecticut, where in the space of 11 minutes, shot and killed 20 first-graders and 6 adults.

We are also told that after the massacre, SHES relocated to an empty school in neighboring Monroe, CT — Chalk Hill Middle School at 375 Fan Hill Rd. — until a new swanky SHES was rebuilt with the $50 million from the state of Connecticut as a result of the shooting massacre.

It turns out that SHES had moved to Chalk Hill months before the alleged massacre, which leads to this question:

Who, then, were the students and teachers whom Lanza shot to death at SHES on December 14, 2012?

The evidence of SHES’s move to Chalk Hill comes from Wolfgang W. Halbig, a humble straight-talking 71-year-old man with 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 was an expert witness in the Columbine and other school shootings.

Below is his biographical sketch:

On Feb. 13, 2014, Halbig became a public face of Sandy Hook skeptics when, in a radio interview with Dave Gahary of American Free Press, he called the school shooting a “contrived event,” i.e., a hoax.

For publicly questioning the authenticity of the official Sandy Hook narrative, Halbig is targeted with harassment, physical threats, and civil lawsuits.

Last year, Halbig was sued by Leonard Pozner, the father of Sandy Hook victim, 6-year-old Noah Pozner. Curiously, at the very point in the lawsuit when Leonard Pozner was supposed to present a video deposition, he dropped the lawsuit. (Source: Olive Branch Report)

Note: That may be because “Leonard Pozner” doesn’t actually exist, according to marriage and family therapist Mona Alexis, who maintains that “Leonard Pozner” is the alias of a man named Reuben Vabner, and that pics of the 6-year-old Noah Pozner are actually the younger pics of now grown-up Michael Vabner. A search on two paid-subscription people-search engines, Spokeo and TruthFinder, indicates that there is no “Leonard Pozner” in Florida, Connecticut, or the entire U.S. of A. Nor are there a “Leonard Pozner” or a “Noah Pozner” among the family members of Leonard’s ex-wife and mother of Noah, Veronique Patricia Pozner, who is also known as Veronique Vabner. Interestingly, on September 11, 2012, three months before the SHES massacre, Veronique had filed for bankruptcy.

The latest lawsuit against Halbig is a civil lawsuit by six Sandy Hook families.

A major contention of Sandy Hook skeptics is that Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) had been closed for some time before the alleged massacre on December 14, 2012. The skeptics point to the following evidence (see “Sandy Hook hoax: 6 signs that school was closed before massacre”):

  1. Years before the “massacre,” the school was reported to be in disrepair and contaminated with environmental toxins, including the deadly asbestos.
  2. Absence of legally-required designated handicapped parking spaces and signage in the many aerial photographic and video images of the school’s parking lot taken by news media on the day of the “massacre”.
  3. Testimony from the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine of the school’s lack of Internet activity from the beginning of 2008 through all of 2012.
  4. Refusal on the part of the State of Connecticut Freedom of Information Commission to provide Halbig with documents he’d requested, invoking the Freedom of Information Act: SHES maintenance orders and emails from SHES principal Dawn Hochsprung to food services provider in the months immediately preceding the “massacre” — remember this!
  5. Photographic evidence of an abandoned school from the State of Connecticut’s Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection — of a dangerous, exposed metal rod on an exterior staircase; and classrooms and hallways jammed with furniture and office supplies in clear violation of the fire safety code. Below is one example:

All of which would explain why aerial footage and police dash-cam videos curiously show no hundreds of students being evacuated from SHES on the day of the “massacre”.

Now, Halbig has received stunning evidence of SHES’s closure and the removal of its teachers and students to Chalk Hill School in Monroe, CT, months before the “massacre”. The evidence consists of:

  1. An email exchange between SHES’s principal and school custodian on moving the school.
  2. An invoice from Dean Foods of a food delivery to SHES at Chalk Hill Middle School in Monroe, CT.
  3. A spreadsheet listing invoices of Dean Foods deliveries to SHES in Monroe.
  4. An email from an employee of Dean Foods confirming that the food deliveries were sent to SHES in Monroe.
  5. A USAC form indicating that services were provided Chalk Hill Middle School although that school hasn’t been used by the Monroe school district since June 2011.

(1) email on moving SHES

On July 19, 2012, SHES principal Dawn Hochsprung exchanged conspiratorial-toned (“mum’s the word”) email with school custodian Kevin Anzellotti, bemoaning the moving of SHES:

Hochsprung: “How does this look? NOT set in stone! I have to notify teachers after we meet next Thursday, then we can get moving. Of course, they will need to come in and pack…. This is going to be really hard!”

Anzellotti: “I got it and it is what it is it’s bad for us but I would not what [sic] to be in your shoes as your [sic] telling them but all still have jobs I guess that’s a good thing mums the word.”

Below is a screenshot of the exchange:

(2) Food service invoice

Dean Foods is a national food and beverage company and the largest dairy company in the United States. Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, the company has 66 manufacturing facilities and distributes its products across all 50 states. Here is Dean Foods’ website.

On April 26, 2012, 8 months before the alleged massacre, Dean Foods prepared an invoice of an order from Sandy Hook Elementary School for “American/Continental” style cuisine. Strangely, the food was to be sent not to SHES’s address at 12 Dickinson Drive, Sandy Hook, CT 06482, but to the address of Chalk Hill Middle School at 375 Fan Hill Rd., Monroe, CT.

Below is a screenshot of the invoice (click image to enlarge):

(3) Dean Foods Spreadsheet

Below is a screenshot of the Spreadsheet listing 15 invoices from September 1, 2012 to December 15, 2012, for food deliveries to SHES at 375 Fan Hill Road in Monroe:

(4) Email from Dean Foods Employee

Halbig received the invoice and spreadsheet from X, an employee of Dean Foods. I have verified the identity of X on LinkedIn, but I’m not revealing X’s name to protect his/her life. Halbig fully intends to introduce X’s emails, the invoice and spreadsheet as evidence should the malicious lawsuit against him goes to trial.

Below is the email from X, confirming that the food orders from SHES were all delivered to the Chalk Hill Middle School address in Monroe, CT. I’ve blacked out the sender’s name:

(5) USAC Form 471

After reading the above, the alert reader might ask: “If Sandy Hook Elementary School was moved to Chalk Hill Middle School in Monroe, what happened to Chalk Hill’s own teachers and students?”

Here’s the answer: Chalk Hill Middle School has been empty since June 2011!

From a news report in CTPost on April 30, 2017:

Chalk Hill Middle School opened in the fall of 1969 to about 900 students. Now it sits forlorn and locked up with no apparent plan for its future…. Ideas range from the wrecking ball to recasting it as a community center to using it as offices for various town agencies. It hasn’t been used by the Monroe school district since the end of the 2010-11 school year.

Though officially empty since June 2011, Chalk Hill Middle School curiously applied for broadband and Internet connectivity services from Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), as indicated in an USAC Application Form 471 on March 13, 2012 (see screenshot below). All U.S. public schools and libraries are required by the FCC to use USAC Form 471.

Fellowship of the Minds thanks Mr. Wolfgang Halbig for his permission to use the screenshots in the above Items 1-5 for this post.

FOIA emails reveal Obama White House exploited Sandy Hook for gun control

Rahm Emanuel, current Chicago mayor and former Obama White House chief of staff (January 2009 to October 2010), famously said:

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. What I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.”

That’s precisely what the Obama administration did with the Sandy Hook “massacre” of December 14, 2012, as revealed in an exchange of emails between Emanuel and Obama’s Department of Education Secretary Arne Duncan.

Ann Costantino reports for The Baltimore Post, May 23, 2018, that a Baltimore Post reporter, who was researching another matter, obtained the emails by filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request last summer with the U.S. Department of Education.

Constantino writes:

But even before [Sandy Hook] victims were laid to rest after their fatal shootings, former U.S Department of Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel exchanged messages on how to frame the tragedy, politically.

During a roughly 10 minute period, the native Chicagoans exchanged seven messages two days following the massacre, in which Mayor Emanuel, who had previously served as President Barrack Obama’s chief of staff, advised Secretary Duncan on what position he should take on the Sandy Hook shootings.

The email exchange between the two men began at 6:57PM EST on December 16, 2012, with an email titled “CT shootings” from Duncan to Emanuel, asking: “What are your thoughts?”

Emanuel quickly responded 5 minutes later: “Go for a vote this week before it fades. Tap peoples emotion. Make it simple assault weapons.”

Duncan: “Yup- thanks.”

Emanuel: “When I did brady bill and assault weapons for clinton we always made it simple. Criminals or war weapons.”

Duncan: “Gun show loophole? Database?  Cop-killer bullets? Too complicated?”

Emanuel: “Cop killer maybe. The other no.”

Duncan: “Got it.”

Below are screenshots of the emails:

Obama White House Sandy Hook emails

When confronted with their emails on exploiting Sandy Hook for gun control, neither Duncan, Emanuel, nor their office staff chose to respond.

However, Duncan did address gun control in a recent interview in The Atlantic, in which he lamented that although “We played by all the rules after Sandy Hook. We did a study, we did a report, we worked with Congress, and guess what we accomplished? Nothing.” But he is more optimistic today because of the February 14 Parkland school shootings and the students mobilized:

“Nothing we have done to date has worked. We have absolutely failed. I have failed. We’ve all failed. But I am also more hopeful today than I have been at any time since the Sandy Hook massacre.”

How is this possible? Despite strict gun control laws, NJ arts festival shooting leaves 22 injured

stoopid

On June 13, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy (D) signed six bills aimed at eliminating gun violence infringing upon our Second Amendment rights. Those bills included: expand gun background checks, tighten the handgun carrying permit process, reduce the legal capacity of ammunition magazines and establish a so-called “red flag” law.

Even before these bills, New Jersey had some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the nation.

A shooting occurred over the weekend that injured over 20 people. Guess the governor needs to sign off on MORE gun control laws…

From Fox News: Nearly two dozen people were injured after gunfire broke out early Sunday during a fight at an all-night art event in New Jersey’s capital city, leaving one suspect dead which authorities said appeared to be caused by “neighborhood beef.”

(The dead suspect had just been released from prison.)

Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri said at a news conference that a total of 22 people were injured in the shooting, 17 of whom were treated for gunshot wounds at nearby hospitals. A second suspect is in custody.

“It’s a massive crime scene,” Onofri said.

Two suspects opened fire shortly before 2:45 a.m. at the 24-hour Art All Night show in the Roebling Market section of the city, according to Onofri, who told The Associated Press a “neighborhood beef” was behind the shooting.

The event began Saturday afternoon and was scheduled to continue until Sunday afternoon and typically draws thousands of people. The festival showcases local art, music and food.

“This is truly a tragedy for Trenton,” Trenton Mayor Eric Jackson said. Four people are listed as in critical condition, including a 13-year-old boy who is in “extremely critical condition,” according to Onofri.

Police have identified at least two suspects in the shooting. One, a 33-year-old man, was pronounced dead while the other was taken into police custody. Onofri said authorities “believe” the suspect who died was shot and killed by police. Trenton police at the scene told NJ.com that officers engaged with at least one gunman.

Authorities are now combing through the warehouse where the shooting took place as part of the investigation. Onofri said that “multiple weapons” were recovered at the scene. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said on Twitter the agency is “actively assisting” Trenton and New Jersey State Police with the shooting.

Onofri said that authorities are also investigating an attempted carjacking that took place in the area after the shooting. Three people were in a vehicle when a man came up and pointed a gun at them, the prosecutor said. Their vehicle sustained “some damage” during the confrontation, he added, without releasing further details.

A witness told The Trentonian he witnessed a fight break out before gunshots rang out, with several punches being thrown. “I saw two punches and then heard several gunshots,” Franco Roberts said.

Roberts told the newspaper he thought something bad was going to happen because there were “more people outside than in the warehouse” standing around.  “Everybody ran toward the door,” he said. “And the people fighting and shooting got mixed with the crowd that was running and they went out the door shooting.”

Angelo Nicolo told WPVI that he and his brother were at the event when they heard loud popping sounds, and that people started running down the street. “And all of a sudden, my brother goes to me, ‘You hear that gunfire?’ I go, ‘It sounds like fireworks.’ He said, ‘No, that’s gunfire.’ Next thing you know, we turn around and everybody’s running down the street. All hell broke loose,” Nicolo said.

The Trenton resident said he saw one person with a gunshot wound to the leg. “I saw two police officers escort a guy that got shot in the leg; they bandaged him up and whisked him away before the ambulance came here,” he told WPVI. “It was pretty gnarly.”

The event was billed as a showcase for more than 1,500 pieces of art. Authorities said that about 1,000 people were in the area when the shooting started and people stampeded.

“Devastated by last night’s shooting at Art All Night Trenton,” New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy said on Twitter. “We must eradicate the scourge of gun violence from our communities.”

Faithful Yorkshire Terrier stays by the side of a missing girl all night and helps rescuers find her

fat heath

Remy and Fat Heath/KFVS 12 photo

Luvs a happy ending!

From Daily Mail: A faithful Yorkshire Terrier named Fat Heath stayed by the side of a frightened toddler over the weekend after she went missing in rural Missouri. 

The ordeal began around 8.30pm Thursday with a 911 call that three-year-old Remy Elliott had wandered away from her home near the town of Qulin, 175 miles south of St. Louis.

Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Clark Parrott says a search began that included an airplane, but the girl was not found overnight, according to KFVS 12.  More than 100 people joined police in the rescue operation and set out to search a cornfield Friday morning, according to ABC 7 News.

Just after 8am, search dogs began barking – and a tiny dog started yapping in response.

Searchers found the girl with her tiny terrier, whose name was later revealed to be Fat Heath. The child had several mosquito bites but was otherwise unharmed. She was examined by the Black River Medical Center in Poplar Bluff and returned home with some medication for the bites.

Following the successful rescue mission, the Missouri State Highway Patrol lauded the effort in a tweet.

‘This is what #Community looks like. Law enforcement, 1st Responders and community volunteers coming together to find a missing child. Her dog stayed by her side all night. #StrongerTogether,’ the post read.

Elliott’s mother was overjoyed to have her daughter back, telling CBS affiliate KFVS 12 that she’s relieved to have found her daughter. ‘I feel a lot better, especially since we know she is okay. She is back to her normal self now,’ said Timber Merritt, Remy’s mom.

‘I looked for her by myself thinking maybe she was just in the woods or somewhere where I just couldn’t see her,’ Merritt said. ‘And I was calling for her and calling for her, and when she wasn’t calling back I realized I don’t think I’m going to find her on my own.’

Merritt’s brother, Quinlin, made the 258-mile drive from western Kentucky to help in the search and was credited with finding Remy and her dog about half a mile away from the house.

‘They said that she was asleep when he picked her up,’ Merritt said. ‘She was definitely exhausted, hot, really sweaty and it took a while to drink anything. She said she wasn’t scared because Fat Heath was there. If he wasn’t I think she would’ve been terrified.

One of the volunteers, Makayla Hardcastle, told KFVS that parts of the search was challenging but was happy her community is whole again.

‘The corn feels like razor blades cutting you, especially for a child,’ Hardcastle said. ‘And you don’t hear well in the corn either, so when somebody is yelling your name you can hear them but you don’t know where it is coming from.’

Merritt says that she wants to raise awareness in her small community so other parents never have to go through the same experience. ‘Hopefully put a fence around the yard, or keep her inside,’ the mom said with a laugh.

Religious people live 4 years longer than atheists

Four days ago, I posted about church attendance reducing suicide risk by half.

Here is more evidence that being a Christian is good for our health, both mental and physical.

The lonely world of atheists

A study by a team of researchers found a surprising correlation between longevity and religious faith: religious people live up to four years longer than atheists.

Published on June 13, 2018 in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science, the article “Does Religion Stave Off the Grave? Religious Affiliation in One’s Obituary and Longevity” was authored by:

  1. Laura Wallace, the lead author, is a doctoral student of psychology at Ohio State University (OSU).
  2. Rebecca Anthony, who is in her final year of medical school at OSU.
  3. Dr. Christian End, associate professor of psychology at Xavier University.
  4. Dr. Baldwin Way, associate professor of psychology at OSU.

As summarized by a press release from Ohio State University, the study employed two samples of obituaries;

  1. A first sample of 505 obituaries published in Iowa’s Des Moines Register  in January and February 2012, showed that people with religious affiliations lived 9.45 years longer than atheists. The gap in longevity shrank to 6.48 years when gender and marital status were taken into account.
  2. A second sample of 1,096 obituaries from 42 major U.S. cities published on newspaper websites between August 2010 and August 2011, found that people whose obits mentioned a religious affiliation lived an average of 5.64 years longer than those whose obits did not. That gap shrank to 3.82 years after gender and marital status were considered.

The researchers tried to account for these likely explanatory (or “contaminating”) factors:

  • Many studies have shown that people who volunteer and participate in social groups tend to live longer than others. As an example, attending church regularly increases the odds of becoming friends with other attendees. Wallace et al. combined data from both samples and determined that volunteerism and social engagement only partly accounted for the greater longevity of religious people. Wallace said: “We found that volunteerism and involvement in social organizations only accounted for a little less than one year of the longevity boost that religious affiliation provided. There’s still a lot of the benefit of religious affiliation that this can’t explain.”
  • What about the importance that many religions place on conformity to community values and norms? The researchers found that in highly religious cities where conformity was important, religious people tended to live longer than non-religious people.

Other possible explanatory factors:

  • The researchers allowed that the longevity effect of religious affiliation may have to do with the rules and norms of many religions restricting unhealthy practices such as alcohol, drug use and sexual promiscuity.
  • In addition, Dr. Way said, “many religions promote stress-reducing practices that may improve health, such as gratitude, prayer or meditation.”
  • Way also admitted that the study could not control for important factors related to longevity such as race and health behaviors.

Nevertheless, lead author Wallace said that overall, the study provides additional support to the growing number of studies showing that religion does have a positive effect on health.

After woman’s death and a sexual attack in a park, Victoria Police tell citizens, “Take responsibility for your safety”

cell phone vs firearm

Choose wisely ladies…one of these is a better tool to use for saving your life during an attack.

Strict gun control laws in Australia make it very difficult for a woman to best determine how to take responsibility for her own safety.

Do tell #GunControlNow crowd (who love the gun control model of other countries), why do you want to make it more difficult for women who want to carry a firearm for safety, especially when police tell them to take responsibility for said safety?

From TheAge.com: Police have not ruled out a possible link between the death of a woman whose body was found on a soccer pitch in Carlton North (suburb of Melbourne) overnight and the recent sexual assault of a woman at a nearby park.

Detectives have promised round-the-clock patrols of Princes Park where the body of the woman, believed to be in her 30s, was found in the early hours of Wednesday. It is understood police suspect it may have been a random attack.

The woman’s body was found by a passerby on the pitch in the middle of the popular Princes Park running track, next to Melbourne General Cemetery, about 2.40am. Her body was found near the centre of the pitch.

“Paramedics worked on the woman, who is yet to be formally identified, but she was not able to be revived,” a police spokesman said.

The Parkville sex attack

On March 28, another woman was sexually assaulted less than one kilometre away, near Royal Park in Parkville, as she was walking by the intersection of Gatehouse Street and Bayles Crescent about 2.35am.

A man approached the woman from behind, trapped her in a bear hug and the pair fell to the ground, where he sexually assaulted her, police said.

The man tried to cover the woman’s mouth as she screamed for help but several nearby residents heard her. She managed to break free and ran to a nearby property where residents helped her and called police. The area was searched by police, including by helicopter, but the attacker was not found.

Detectives from the force’s sex crimes unit have confirmed they are liaising with homicide police as they work to track down the Parkville attacker.

Detective Senior Sergeant Brendan Butland said the possibility both cases were connected was being investigated, but at this stage there was “no known link” between the two. “We’re keeping an open mind,” he said.

Since the Parkville attack, detectives have made a number of inquiries into possible persons of interest, but they have since been ruled out.

Last week, Parkville residents received letters from Victoria Police asking for information and any CCTV about the Royal Park assault. The letter from Senior Constable Rhiannon Woolfe told residents that police were doorknocking the area and asked them to contact the sexual crime squad command.

Police keeping ‘open mind’ about possible link

On Wednesday – only an hour after the woman’s body was found in Carlton North – police renewed their appeal to help find the Parkville sex attacker.

Police have released a computer-generated image of the man police wish to speak to in connection with the Parkville sex attack, as well as CCTV footage of a man walking along the street.

Acting Homicide Squad Inspector Andrew Stamper said police were keeping an open mind about a possible link between the woman’s death and the sex assault. “We’re aware of that matter and we have been liasing with our colleagues at the sexual crimes squad,” he said.

“At this stage we have an open mind, but obviously we will be considering that matter in relation to this matter.”

Carlton North death ‘suspicious’

The circumstances of the death are being treated as suspicious, but Inspector Stamper did not reveal the details of the woman’s injuries or if she sustained any at all. He declined to comment on whether she had been sexually assaulted before she died.

Inspector Stamper said the man who found the woman’s body and raised the alarm was assisting police with their inquiries, but was not being treated as a suspect at this stage.

He declined to comment on the reasons why the woman or the man who found her were at the park in the early hours of the morning. He also declined to comment on a pair of black shoes found not far from the woman’s body.

He said police were taking the matter “very seriously” and were canvassing CCTV footage in the area. “It will be a long day out here a lot of resources are getting thrown into it,” he said.

Police ramp up patrols of Princes Park

North west division Superintendent David Clayton said there would now be a highly visible police presence at the park “all times of the day and night”.

“They [police] will be on foot, they’ll be on bicycles and they’ll be in cars,” he said.

He urged anyone walking in the area at night to take extra precautions and always be aware of their surroundings. “The message we would provide to all members of the community is to take responsibility for your safety,” he said.

“Make sure people know where you are and if you’ve got a mobile phone carry it and if you’ve got any concerns at all call police.”

Carlton resident Fran Keenan does a lap around Princes Park daily, but she said she would never walk in the area when it’s dark.

Ms Keenan said she was left shaken by the discovery of the woman’s body and recent sexual assault nearby. ‘‘I walked around [Princes Park] and it was really early in the morning once and I just didn’t feel comfortable being out there in the dark so I’ve never done it again,’’ she said.

‘‘I feel perfectly safe in the daytime, but it’s a different feeling when you walk at night and there’s less people around. ‘It’s just awful to think that a woman has died so close by and it’s a bit eerie here today with all the police around.’’

Previously deported illegal alien & child rapist re-arrested in Texas

illegal erazo eagle pass border patrol

Illegal alien and children rapist caught trying to get back into our country/Eagle Pass Border Patrol photo

From US Customs & Border Protection (DEL RIO, Texas): U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Eagle Pass Station arrested a Honduran man, previously convicted of rape and indecent exposure to a minor, who attempted to re-enter the country after having been previously removed.

“Through diligent and tireless commitment to their duty, our agents have arrested another dangerous criminal attempting to enter the country illegally,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Felix Chavez. “The potential hazards agents face when encountering such individuals cannot be understated.  I applaud the professionalism of our employees and their willingness to stand in harm’s way for the safety of the nation.”

On June 10, agents arrested David Milton Ulloa-Erazo, 34, for illegally entering the United States near Eagle Pass. Once at the station, records checks revealed prior convictions in Massachusetts in 2008, for rape and indecent exposure to a minor. Ulloa-Erazo was sentenced to eight years imprisonment for those crimes and was subsequently deported to Honduras.

Ulloa-Erazo faces prosecution for illegal re-entry into the United States – 8 USC § 1326 – which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years imprisonment.

The Del Rio Border Patrol Sector is part of the Joint Task Force-West South Texas Corridor, which leverages federal, state and local resources to combat transnational criminal organizations. To report suspicious activity call the Del Rio Sector’s toll free number at 1-866-511-8727.
