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.”

  1. More proof these demorats don’t care about the children (see the latest faux outrage over separation of illegal alien families).

    It’s all about CONTROL with these people.

  2. Best get armed up now while you can still purchase firearms and ammo. The time is coming, soon I fear, that Civil War 2 will occur, martial law and gun confiscation. YOU are responsible for your own safety, not the police. Don’t be caught with your pants down!

      • That quote was from Duncan himself. As I read it he’s saying that all his/their efforts at gun control have failed,to which I commented that they failed because they’re wrong in thinking any form of gun restrictions will save lives. ALL they’ll do is empower Criminals.

  8. This seems to be quite telling that their stated motivations are malarkey from end-to-end, and certainly adds weight to the things Halbig & others have found.

    I don’t know the legislation in various states for more “exotic” defensive techniques, like charged particles etc., but perhaps these should also be invested in (They’ll have a harder time cracking down on batteries etc. than they will on gunpowder-based ammo. As an aside, ever wonder why they’re switching so many things to lithium ion batteries? The usual excuse is they’re “better”, but I wonder if the fact that those batteries are unstable, and prone to explosions is the real reason, in order to weaken civilian electronics etc. for attack & destruction, just a thought.) I used to know a place that had a “ray gun” that could blast chips off of rocks, now that product in particular is absent from said place… makes one wonder.

    In any case, for the Staff and Fellow Readers here, I present this: https://www.amazing1.com/categories/protection-security.html for defense, do look around the place, of course. Some items there might be worth saving up for, and might be unpleasant/unexpected for hireling thugs.

      • Happy to be of assistance, just hope it proves helpful Dr. Eowyn, and do spread whatever else found, and that is useful, to other folks where you can, hopefully with the spread of actual knowledge, and resources to enable the thinking person, this evil tide can be curbed for a bit longer. (Additionally for other items there is unitednuclear.com, which is the place that used to carry the rock chipper in question, but given that product’s removal, and the fact they also deal in uranium, I’m unsure if they’re compromised or not, but then I suppose the same could be said of most websites dealing in the selling of unusual things these days. Do check their trustworthiness as well for yourself, where you can.)

        These sorts of resources combined with what can be learned from old educational books, (From before the library privatization, and school system purges.) and places like “the king of random”‘s youtube channel should be helpful in putting a dent in the schemes of the satanic fascio-communist totalitarians, hopefully.

        I had heard that once upon a time, the citizenry had functional minds, and a decent, at least, education, (Pre-dewey) this was helpful in building infrastructure etc. and that’s probably why it was “tolerated”, now it is deemed a threat by those that serve evil, very clearly, and so it is, but only to their evil causes that would implement the devil’s plans.

  11. Proud of two things today. I have been thrown into Twitter jail for calling out Hllary and Oprah, saying shut the hell up and sit down regarding the poor illegal children in jail and dog kennels. Undetermined detention. Shame on me! And I got a great report from my oncologist who has determined in a year, I can stop cancer meds if I choose to. I am, for all practical purposes, cancer free.

  13. “…a Baltimore Post reporter, who was researching another matter, obtained the emails…” via FOIA.

    That is either incompetence by the FOIA Dept. to send Sandy Hook-related emails to someone requesting info on “another matter”; or maybe someone “inside” wanted to leak out those Sandy Hook-related emails & did it on purpose(?)

    Either way, it’s amazing they came to light.

    Arne Duncan, Obama’s DOE Secretary, may have been “in the dark,” but you’d think Rahm Emanuel knew in advance that Sandy Hook was a hoax … or maybe not(?) since he was kicked back to the Chicago curb two years prior to SHES. Maybe he was no longer part of the “need to know” gang.

    Again, either way, “playing SHES for what it was worth” to the anti-gun crowd, proves again that in politics, nothing happens by “accident.”
