Sandy Hook and Obama’s Connecticut Social Security number

Note: When WordPress took down this blog on August 15, 2018, many of our published posts were disappeared from the net, each of which must be retrieved, restored and re-published on its original publication date. This post was originally published on Dec. 27, 2014. It is so interesting, it warrants a fresh re-publishing.

………………………………………………………………….

One of the many curiosities about the sitting President of the United States is the fact that, unlike us, he has not one, but multiple Social Security numbers (SSN).

In 2010, two licensed private investigators, Neil Sankey and Susan Daniels, found that multiple SS numbers are associated with Barack Obama’s name. Daniels and Sankey put their findings in sworn affidavits. Dr. Orly Taitz further verified their information with a third source, a retired Department of Homeland Security senior investigator named John Sampson.

In May 2010, the mystery deepened when it was determined that the SSN Obama is currently using (042-68-4425) has a Connecticut prefix, 042, but Obama had never lived in nor had associations with the state of Connecticut. Obama has been using that 042 SS number since 1979 when he was 18 years old.
In an article for Western Journalism, Stephen Baldwin writes:

All told, there are 49 addresses and 16 different Social Security numbers listed for a person whose name is spelled “Barack Obama”…. [T]the one Social Security number Obama most frequently used, the one beginning with 042, is a number issued in Connecticut sometime during 1976-1977, yet there is no record of Obama ever living or working in Connecticut. Indeed, during this time period Obama would have been 15-16 years old and living in Hawaii at the time.

In late February 2011, the mystery further deepened when retired US Air Force Col. Gregory Hollister, the litigant in an Obama eligibility lawsuit, conducted a search for Obama’s Connecticut SSN in the Social Security Number Verification System used by small businesses to verify employment eligibility. The results came back as:

Failed: SSN not in file (never issued)

To the question of why Obama obtained a Connecticut-issued SSN instead of one by Hawaii, Joel Gilbert, maker of the documentary Dreams from My Real Father, has a plausible explanation: Obama’s peculiar Connecticut-issued SSN is related to the question of Obama’s birth certificate.

At the inception of the program, all SSNs were assigned and cards issued based solely on information provided by the applicant. However, in the 1970s, Social Security Administration began requiring proof of age, identity, and citizenship. In 1977, lacking a valid birth certificate, Obama was forced to buy a SS number so he could get his first job at a Honolulu Baskin Robbins. Gilbert surmises that Obama was sold an SSN that was Connecticut-based so it couldn’t be traced back to the Hawaii SS office. (See “Why Obama has a Connecticut Social Security no.”)

It goes without saying that it is a crime to use a Social Security number that isn’t yours. It is also a fact that once the Social Security Administration issued a SSN, even after the recipient died, SSA will never reissue that number to another person. There is one Numident record for each SSN ever assigned. A numident is the social security number itself, which is only assigned once and is never used again unless it is stolen.

So who was the original owner of Obama’s Connecticut-issued Social Security number?

In May 2011, blogger The Obama Hustle conducted a database pull for SSN 042-68-4425 and got the names of Harrison J. Bounel and Barack Obama, indicating that one SSN was being used by both men.

Since Obama uses Harrison Bounel’s SSN, a search for the relatives of Harrison Bounel shows Michelle Obama as Bounel’s spouse (see below).

So who is/was Harrison J. Bounel?

Leslie Bishop, a genealogy expert with over 25 years of experience, found a 1940 Census document showing a Harry Bounel, age 50, residing in Bronx, NY, which would make 1890 Bounel’s birth year. Harry Bounel’s listing is on line 48 (see red arrow I painted next to his name).

In September 2012, Leslie Bishop sent a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Social Security Administration for information on a Harry Bounel with the SSN 042-68-4425. Below is the letter she received (you can also see the letter on Scribd):

In the letter dated November 16, 2012, Dawn S. Wiggins, Freedom of Information Officer at the Social Security Administration, wrote that in spite of Leslie Bishop’s FOIA request, her request is declined because “disclosing this information would be a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.” Mind you, in 2012 Harrison Bounel would have to be 120 years old, which means he had long died. But SS Administration nevertheless claims revealing information about his SS number would be an “invasion” of the dead man’s privacy.

Bishop stated that Social Security Administration “acknowledged my request for THAT numident and denied my request. In other words, that record exists and since there is only one Numident per SS# and that Numident for Harry Bounel with SS# 042-68-4425 apparently exists, then it’s not possible that O is using that number legally and it is apparent that Bounel is the original holder of that number.” (Source: The Obama Hustle)

Dr. Orly Taitz writes on Jan. 18, 2013:

According to 1940 census Harry Bounel was born in Russia in 1890. This is the date of birth on some of Lexis records associated with the Social Security number 042-68-4425…. Also, we had some records showing Harry Bounel residing with Robinson family in CT in 1910.

By “Robinson family,” Dr. Taitz means Michelle Obama’s family, the Robinsons (Michelle’s maiden name is Michelle Robinson). Taitz continues:

Michele Robinson Obama’s great grand mother Rose Ella Cohen, the name strikes me as a name of a Jewish woman from Russia…. It actually was not uncommon in those days for Jewish immigrant women from Russia to marry African American man, these Jewish women were not raised with any prejudice against African American men and also were persecuted.  I want to know, if Harry Bounel was related to her. He was born in 1890. She was born in 1893-1896. Very close in age, he could be her cousin. From what I understand Harry Bounel never married. In this case the only family, who would be his next of kin,  who would  be Robinson family.

Another weird coincidense [sic]. We see Bounel residing in CT in 1910. The Social Security [number] was issued in 1977 in CT. He was 87 at that time. There was a hospital next to Newton [sic]. It was a Newtown psychiatric hospital, where some elderly without family resided their last days. The hospital later was renamed to Fairfield state hospital. This is where the bodies of the Sandy Hook victims were taken for autopsy.

Dr. Taitz received the letter below from a reader:

I’m in my 60’s and grew up in Bridgeport CT until 1961. When I was a kid in the 50’s, we used to joke that if you’re bad you’ll be sent to the “Newtown nut house”, a psychiatric hospital in Newtown that was just next to Danbury. […] You had surmised that the identity [Obama’s Connecticut SSN] was taken from someone at a local Danbury NURSING HOME. The official name of the “Newtown nut house” was the FAIRFIELD STATE HOSPITAL. (renamed Fairfield Hills Hospital). Mentally ill patients who had died were buried on site.

Dr. Taitz found that in 1976-1977, when new SSN laws were adopted, elderly individuals like Harrison Bounel needed to get a SSN in order to get Medicare benefits. “When people were elderly or patients in the psychiatric hospital, the applications were filled out by the hospital employees,” that is, personnel at Fairfield State Hospital probably helped Bounel to fill out his application for a SSN.

According to Wikipedia, Michele Obama’s great great grandfather Jim Robinson’s second wife was Rose Ella Cohen.

A sharp-eyed reader of Taitz’s blog named Marshman noted that in the 1940 Census, right beneath the entry for Harry Bounel was Sam Cohen (line 49), which meant the two men lived next door. Bounel was identified as a “lodger” while Cohen was a “head” of household. Was Rose Ella Cohen a daughter of Sam Cohen?

There you have it:

The original owner of Obama’s stolen Connecticut-issued Social Security number was Harrison J. Bounel, an immigrant from Russia who was born in 1890, who seemed to have had some connection with a Jewish woman named Rose Ella Cohen, who was the second wife of the great great grandfather of Michelle Obama.

This same Bounel, whose Social Security number is one of Barack Obama’s many SSNs, was institutionalized in and probably died in the Fairfield State Hospital, a now-abandoned psychiatric hospital in Newtown, Connecticut which was closed down in 1995. The same Newtown, CT, where on Dec. 14, 2012, an alleged lone gunman named Adam Lanza allegedly shot to death 20 children and 6 adults in the Sandy Hook Elementary School — a massacre that every available evidence and sound reasoning point to it being a gigantic hoax.

What coincidences!!!

Below is a picture of Fairfield State Psychiatric Hospital taken by citizen journalist “Barry” in his recent visit to Newtown. Barry said Newtown has a spooky ghost-town quality, with many abandoned buildings like Fairfield. Read his account here.

Fairfield State Psychiatric Hospital, Newtown, CT

The weirdness doesn’t end. Stephen Baldwin writes:

Nevertheless, all this mystery surrounding Obama appears to be a generational thing. Researchers have discovered nearly a dozen aliases, at least two different Social Security numbers, and upwards of over 99 separate addresses for [Stanley] Ann Dunham, his mother. […]

The lack of documents regarding Obama also extends to his mother and to his [maternal] grandparents [Stanley and Madelyn Dunham]. Indeed, researchers have been unable to find marriage licenses for his mother’s two marriages, assuming she was ever legally married. Ditto goes for the marriage license for Ann’s parents. They cannot find birth certificates for her, her parents, or for even for her grandparents. Even more so, despite Obama’s boast of his grandfather’s military service, there’s no record of that either. For reasons no one knows, much of Obama’s life, his mother’s life and his grandparent’s life has been erased from the records as if they never existed.

More evidence that Sandy Hook Elementary School was closed before shooting

A major contention of Sandy Hook skeptics is that Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) had been closed for some time before the shooting massacre on December 14, 2012. The skeptics point to the following evidence:

  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”.
  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.
  6. Evidence obtained by Wolfgang Halbig of SHES’s closure and the removal of its teachers and students to Chalk Hill Middle School in Monroe, CT, months before the massacre:
    • An email exchange between SHES’s principal and school custodian on moving the school.
    • An invoice from Dean Foods of a food delivery to SHES at Chalk Hill Middle School in Monroe, CT.
    • A spreadsheet listing invoices of Dean Foods deliveries to SHES in Monroe.
    • An email from an employee of Dean Foods confirming that the food deliveries were sent to SHES in Monroe.
    • 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.
    • FCC Form 471 for the funding year 2012 of Newtown Public Schools includes Chalk Hill Middle School (CHMS) although CHMS is not in Newtown and was closed in 2012.

For images of the above evidence, see:

Now, Halbig has found more photographic evidence that Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) was in such disrepair, it could not have been a functioning school on December 14, 2012, the day of the shootings. The photos were taken on Dec. 13, 2012, a day before the shootings (source: Dropbox):

(1) An article in Newtown Bee on SHES being so contaminated with asbestos and other environmental toxins that it must be completely torn down and replaced with a brand new building:

(2) Huge cracks in the sidewalk in front of the school:

(3) The entire ceiling of the overhang canopy at the front entrance of SHES was full of mold, mildew and rotten wood:

(4) A side wall outside SHES’s front entrance had water stains from rain pouring through the roof line to flood the entrance:

(5) March Into Reading was a nationwide reading campaign in U.S. public schools which was promoted in March 2012. But a photo taken on December 13, 2013 shows a giant sign inside Classroom 12 of SHES, which says “March Into Reading Centers” — 9 months after the campaign.

(6) The wooden door of Classroom 6 was eroded by termites; the tiled wall next to the door was filthy:

(7) The interior of a classroom is in disrepair, with a broken thermostat, an empty paper-towel dispenser, and a rotted cabinet bottom:

(8) The interior of another school room shows rusty cabinet doors and a stained wooden door (circled in yellow); a microwave oven and a printer are next to a sink (see yellow arrow), which is a hazard:

 

(9) Restrooms for the handicapped and special-needs schoolchildren were used for storage and had no ADA-compliant grab bars or even toilet paper:

(10) The kitchen inside SHES was filthy and devoid of stove, washer, dryer and other kitchen equipments:

(11) Although the school was in disrepair, the 5-year (2011-2016) budget plan for SHES’s building and site maintenance projects shows nothing (zero $) for Year 1: 2011-2012:

Fellowship of the Minds thanks Mr. Halbig for his permission to post the above images.

The Next Attack on Trump

Banker Suicide

LA MAGAZINE: Former Deutsche Bank Exec Connected to Trump Loans Dies by Suicide in Malibu

Thomas Bowers, who worked above Trump’s personal banker, was 55

By Ian Spiegelman -November 27, 2019

A former Deutsche Bank executive who reportedly signed off on some of the institution’s unorthodox loans to Donald Trump killed himself in his Malibu home on November 19. Thomas Bowers, the onetime head of Deutsche Bank’s American wealth-management division, where he oversaw Trump’s private banker, committed suicide by hanging, according to Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s office. Bowers was 55.

If you have been watching the tactics of the Puppeteers as I have, then we likely have some questions in common.

Lately it seems that nothing can be taken at face value. For instance, the mass shooting in Las Vegas is much different and much more than reported. And the riot in Charlottesville cannot be taken at face value. Not to mention that anytime the government is planning emergency training in your town, you should run, not walk, to the nearest exit.

So, not yet knowing what happened to this banker, you should excuse me while I raise a couple of red flags:

1. A young (55 year old) successful banker?
(What’s the motivation?)

2. Suicide by hanging?
(Or suicided by hanging? A favorite method of the puppeteers)

This could be nothing, but one thing it will be is fodder for the Fake News war machine for the next angle of accusations against Donald Trump.

The solution to Baltimore’s milestone homicides? Sue gun manufacturers!

No one is responsible for their personal actions except for the law-abiding people demorats want to control: Gun manufacturers and firearm owners.

Demorats NEVER, NEVER let facts get in the way of reaching their utopian goals.

According to the Baltimore Sun’s report on November 14, the demorat-run city (which hasn’t had a republican mayor since 1967) has hit 300 homicides for the fifth year in a row.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said that to address the “culture of violence” in Baltimore, there must be programs offering young men a path away from a life of crime.

Apparently former mayor Catherine Pugh’s “Squeegee Boys” program wasn’t the correct pathway.

So what is the progressive politicians’ solution to the out-of-control gun violence in their city? Lawsuits against gun manufacturers.

WBAL TV reports that the city of Baltimore is seriously considering following the lead of Sandy Hook families and suing gun manufacturers. From their report:

“City Solicitor Andre Davis said that escalating violence is why he will legally go after gun manufacturers to hold them responsible if Sandy Hook families succeed in their cases, he said.

Andre Davis and former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh

“That decision by the court of appeals a couple of weeks ago was a breakthrough because congress has created immunity for these gun manufacturers that, up until now, has been impenetrable and this recent decision is the first small crack in the wall and we will continue to monitor it,” Davis said.”

Read the WBAL story here.

The “crack in the wall” is Baltimore’s leadership, gang violence and prosecution of violent criminals, which republican governor Larry Hogan wants to address.

But that, of course, is deemed racist by progressives.

Enjoy your record homicide rates, Baltimore!

Suing gun manufacturers for the actions of your criminal citizens will have absolute ZERO effect on murder rates and gun violence. You CANNOT legislate and sue enough people to ensure that CRIMINALS will obey gun control laws. THEY DON’T CARE about your laws.

One big fat lie: Shannon Watts claims Moms Demand group isn’t anti-gun

Baloney.

In an interview with CBS News, Shannon Watts – founder of Bloomberg’s Moms Demand – claims their aren’t anti-gun.

Excerpts from their story:

“Moms Demand Action is a grassroots organization advocating for stronger gun control measures, founded as a Facebook group the day after the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre that took the lives of 26 people, 20 of whom were young children. But while its members advocate for an assault ban, Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts says that it’s a “misnomer” to call the group anti-gun.

“Often people think that because we’re doing this work, we’re anti-gun or we don’t support the Second Amendment. Nothing could be further from the truth,” Watts said in an interview with CBS News chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett in this week’s episode of “The Takeout” podcast. Watts noted that many volunteers the organization were gun owners or married to gun owners.

“This is simply about restoring the responsibilities that go along with gun rights,” Watts said. She added that while the top priorities for Moms Demand Action are background checks, red-flag laws and disarming domestic abusers, the organization also advocates for an assault weapons ban and has worked with municipalities on the issue.”

Madonna makes “powerful” gun control statement in disturbing video “We need to wake up”

Maybe this womyn should wake up to the realities of how gun control really works. She should take a visit to Chiraq.

From Yahoo: Madonna has never been one to shy away from controversy in her music videos, but her new clip for “God Control,” lensed by her frequent collaborator Jonas Åkerlund, may be her most shocking — and important — yet.

The unsettling and unflinching eight-minute opus actually opens with the gory aftermath of a mass shooting at a Pulse-like discotheque. Åkerlund then retraces Madonna’s steps throughout the evening as she watches a school shooting on the news, is held up at gunpoint on her way to the nightclub, and then boogies her cares away (in fun disco-dance sequences that recall 1992’s “Deeper and Deeper” and 2005’s “Hung Up”) before tragedy strikes.

The juxtaposition of scenes of carefree clubbing (set to Mirwais-produced retro-disco beats) with scenes of brutality and bloodshed is extremely chilling.

“Everybody knows the damn truth/ Our nation lied/We’ve lost respect/When we wake up/What can we do?/Get the kids ready/Take them to school/Everybody knows/They don’t have a chance/To get a decent job/To have a normal life/When they talk reforms/It makes me laugh,” sings Madonna, a mother of six. Later she implores, “Blood of innocents spread everywhere/They say that we need love/But we need more than this.”

The video ends with a close-up of tears spilling down Madonna’s face, along with a call to action for viewers to support multiple organizations fighting for gun-safety legislation, including Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, March For Our Lives Foundation, Gays Against Guns, Sandy Hook Promise Foundation, Human Rights Campaign Foundation, National LGBTQ Task Force, National Center for Transgender Equality, National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, One Pulse for America, States United to Prevent Gun Violence, and the Marsha P. Johnson Institute.

In a statement released in conjunction with the video, Madonna explained, “I want to draw attention through my platform as an artist to a problem in America that is out of control and is taking the lives of innocent people. This crisis can end if our legislators act to change the laws that fail to protect us all.

“As a mother, you feel protective and responsible for all of the children in the world,” Madonna recently told People. “It’s really scary to me that the once-safe spaces where we gather, worship and learn are targets. Nobody’s safe. So of course, as a mother, I acutely feel the worry.”

This is not the only pro-gun control statement on Madonna’s new album, Madame X, which just debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard album chart. Another Madame X track, “I Rise,” features audio from a speech by Parkland shooting survivor and activist Emma González.

How much you want to bet that HER personal protection is armed…

Sandy Hook: The curious case of Danbury Hospital’s premature Facebook message, 48 mins. before police received 911 call

This post was first published more than a year ago, but it warrants a re-publishing because the San Francisco-based Archive.org (aka Internet Archive Wayback Machine) refuses to archive the post.

There are so many oddities and anomalies about the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on the morning of December 14, 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut, in which, we are told, 20 first-grade students and 6 adults were killed. The authorities have not made even the slightest effort to address these anomalies, nor have the corporate media shown even the slightest curiosity in investigating these oddities.

This is about one of those oddities: The fact that Danbury Hospital posted on its Facebook page a message of sympathy about the shooting and an offer to assist 48 minutes before Newtown police received the 911 call about a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES). Danbury Hospital in Danbury, CT, is the nearest hospital to Newtown, just 12 miles down the road from SHES.

According to the Newtown police’s timeline of the mass shooting on the morning of December 14, 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut:

  • 9:35:39 – First 911 call to Newtown Police Department is received.
  • 9:36:06 – Newtown Police Department dispatcher broadcasts that there is a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
  • 9:37:38 – Connecticut State Police are dispatched to Sandy Hook Elementary School for active shooter.
  • 9:38:50 – Connecticut State Police are informed that Sandy Hook Elementary School is in lockdown.
  • 9:39:00 – First Newtown police officer arrives behind Sandy Hook Elementary School on Crestwood Road.
  • 9:40:03 – Last gunshot is heard. This is believed to be the final suicide shot from the shooter in classroom 10.
  • 9:42:39 – Newtown officer calls out the license plate of the shooter’s car.
  • 9:44:47 – Newtown officers enter Sandy Hook Elementary School.
  • 9:46:23 – Connecticut State Police arrive at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
  • 9:46:48 – Connecticut State Police enter Sandy Hook Elementary School

On December 14, 2012, at 8:47 ammore than 48 minutes before police, at 9:35 am, received the first 911 call from SHES — Danbury Hospital posted this message on Facebook:

We are here to care for any victims and their families in any way they need us. Our hearts and prayers are extended to anyone involved in this terrible tragedy. To date, three patients have been transported to Danbury Hospital from the scene.

Out of abundance of caution and not because of any direct threat Danbury Hospital is under lockdown. This allows us simply to focus on the important work at hand.

We will keep you apprised of any additional information as details are confirmed.

Below is a screenshot of Danbury Hospital’s Facebook page (source: Wolfgang Halbig):

Here’s a screenshot of Halbig’s email that he bcc’d FOTM on February 17, 2018 (I redacted his email address):

A real conspiracy: Wealthy Americans conspire with coaches, university & college entrance test administrators to rig admissions into elite universities

A friend, R., admonished and ordered me not to send him any posts on Sandy Hook after I sent him my January 8, 2019 post, “More evidence that Sandy Hook Elementary School had moved to Monroe, CT before the shooting massacre,” with documentary evidence from Wolfgang Halbig showing Sandy Hook Elementary School had moved to Chalk Hill Middle School in nearby Monroe, Connecticut, months before the December 14, 2012 mass shooting.

Instead of disputing my post with evidence or reasoning, R. called me an agent of Satan for trafficking in conspiracy theories, which he dismisses because he doesn’t believe in conspiracies and because so many conspiracy theories implicate Jews.

An aside: R., who was adopted as an infant by a childless German immigrant couple, recently learnt from a DNA-testing company that he is part Jewish, never mind the fact that we have good evidence that the results of these commercial DNA ancestry tests are unreliable. (See “DNA ancestry companies fake African ancestry for white people” and “Twins get some ‘mystifying’ results when they put 5 DNA ancestry kits to the test“.) R. actually said in an email before we ceased all communication, that he believes it’s his Jewish ancestry that accounts for why he’s so smart and got a Ph.D., whereas his (adopted) parents never went to college. Curiously, his dumb but hardworking and frugal parents managed to accumulate considerable financial assets from owning and operating a small business.

This post is about a very real conspiracy — by very wealthy Americans conspiring to rig college admissions so that their children get into élite universities, not on their own merits, but via bribes, fake college entrance test scores and fake athleticism. The bribe payments, in tens of thousands and millions of dollars per parent, were funneled into a fake non-profit so that the parents could claim them as charitable donations on their tax returns. All of which means this college admissions scam is also a scam perpetrated on U.S. tax payers.

To top it off, the ring leader of this very real conspiracy, William Singer, is Jewish.

Singer had already pleaded guilty and is helping the FBI gather incriminating evidence against his co-conspirators.

On Tuesday, March 12, 2019, 50 wealthy Americans — including Hollywood actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, were charged in the largest college cheating “conspiracy” ever prosecuted by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). Below is the DOJ press release:

Dozens of individuals involved in a nationwide conspiracy that facilitated cheating on college entrance exams and the admission of students to elite universities as purported athletic recruits were arrested by federal agents in multiple states this morning and charged in federal court in Boston. Athletic coaches from Yale, Stanford, USC, Wake Forest and Georgetown, among others, are implicated, as well as parents and exam administrators.

William “Rick” Singer, 58, of Newport Beach, Calif., was charged with racketeering conspiracy, money laundering conspiracy and obstruction of justice. Singer owned and operated the Edge College & Career Network LLC (“The Key”) – a for-profit college counseling and preparation business – and served as the CEO of the Key Worldwide Foundation (KWF) – a non-profit corporation that he established as a purported charity.

Between approximately 2011 and February 2019, Singer allegedly conspired with dozens of parents, athletic coaches, a university athletics administrator, and others, to use bribery and other forms of fraud to secure the admission of students to colleges and universities including Yale University, Georgetown University, Stanford University, the University of Southern California, and Wake Forest University, among others. Also charged for their involvement in the scheme are 33 parents and 13 coaches and associates of Singer’s businesses, including two SAT and ACT test administrators.

Also charged is John Vandemoer, the head sailing coach at Stanford University, Rudolph “Rudy” Meredith, the former head soccer coach at Yale University, and Mark Riddell, a counselor at a private school in Bradenton, Fla.

The DOJ press release then describes three groups of conspiracies:

(1) College Entrance Exam Cheating Conspiracy:

  • Singer instructed his clients to ask for extended time for their children on the SAT and ACT college entrance exams, by claiming the children have learning disabilities in order to obtain the required medical documentation.
  • Once the extended time was granted, the parents asked that the location of the exams be changed to one of two test centers: a public high school in Houston, Texas, or a private college preparatory school in West Hollywood, Calif.
  • At those test centers, Singer had established relationships with test administrators Niki Williams and Igor Dvorskiy, respectively, who accepted bribes of as much as $10,000 per test to facilitate the cheating scheme by having a third individual, typically Mark Riddell, to take the exams in place of the students, to give the students the correct answers during the exams, or to correct the students’ answers after they completed the exams.
  • Singer typically paid Ridell $10,000 for each student’s test.
  • The parents paid Singer between $15,000 and $75,000 per test, with the payments structured as purported donations to Singer’s tax-exempt Key Worldwide Foundation charity.

(2) College Recruitment Conspiracy:

  • Parents paid Singer, under the guise of charitable donations to his KWF non-profit, approximately $25 million to bribe coaches and university administrators to designate their children as purported athletic recruits, thereby facilitating the children’s’ admission to those universities.
  •  Singer directed employees of The Key and the KWF non-profit to create falsified athletic “profiles” for these children — with fake honors, fake elite teams that they purportedly played on, and staged photos of the children engaged in athletic activity, such as using a rowing machine or purportedly playing water polo.
  • The fake athletic profiles were then submitted to the universities in support of the students’ applications.

(3) Tax Fraud Conspiracy:

  • Beginning around 2013, Singer had parents disguise bribe payments as charitable contributions to his tax-exempt non-profit Key Worldwide Foundaton (KWF), thereby enabling the clients to deduct the bribes from their federal income taxes.
  • KWF employee Steven Masera or another employee then mailed letters from the KWF to the parentss expressing thanks for their purported charitable contributions. The letter stated: “Your generosity will allow us to move forward with our plans to provide educational and self-enrichment programs to disadvantaged youth,” and falsely indicated that “no good or services were exchanged” for the donations. The parents then filed personal tax returns that falsely reported the payment to the KWF as charitable donations.

Separated at birth: Parkland’s David Hogg (l) and Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza (r)

Star Political reports that the admission into Harvard University of David Hogg, a prominent anti-gun activist who became famous as a “survivor” of the Parkland school shooting on February 14, 2018, is now being questioned because:

  • The average SAT score of Harvard’s own admission statistics is 250 points higher than Hogg’s 1270 SAT score. According to ThoughtCo, although a combined SAT score of roughly 1400 will make you competitive at nearly any U.S. college or university, Harvard Univerisity is more demanding, being an exceptionally selective school with an acceptance rate of just 5% in 2017, the lowest rate among all U.S. universities. A 1400 SAT score is on the lower end of Harvard’s accepted student range.
  • Hogg was rejected by several lower-level universities compared to Harvard, including four University of California campuses where he had submitted applications — UCLA, UCSD, UCSB and UC Irvine.

Hogg being a “survivor” of the Parkland school shooting should also be questioned because, according to his own words, he was at home and got on his bike when he heard about the shooting. See “Parkland anomalies: David Hogg was at home during school shooting; interviewed girl before shooting”.

Sandy Hook families can sue AR-15 gunmaker Remington, court rules

March 14, 2019

The Connecticut Supreme Court today ruled that the families of those killed in the Dec. 14, 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., would be allowed to sue Remington Arms, the manufacturer of the Bushmaster AR-15 used in the attack. In a 4-3 decision, the court reversed a ruling of the lower court, Bridgeport Superior Court, which originally dismissed a lawsuit filed by Sandy Hook families against Remington in 2015.

The lower court’s 2015 ruling rested on the federal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA).
The law protects firearms manufacturers and dealers from being held liable when crimes have been committed with their products. A one vote majority of the Connecticut Supreme Court, however, ruled that PLCAA did not shield Remington (and by extension all gun manufacturers and dealers) from being sued.

According to the Hartford Courant, the justices contend that the victims’ families are permitted to argue Remington’s alleged violation of the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act (CUTPA)’

“We further conclude that PLCAA does not bar the plaintiffs from proceeding on the single, limited theory that the defendants violated CUTPA by marketing the XM15- E2S to civilians for criminal purposes, and that those wrongful marketing tactics caused or contributed to the Sandy Hook massacre,” Justice Richard Palmer wrote. “Accordingly, we affirm in part and reverse in part the judgment of the trial court and remand the case for further proceedings.”

“Following a scrupulous review of the text and legislative history of [the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act] we also conclude that Congress has not clearly manifested an intent to extinguish the traditional authority of our legislature and our courts to protect the people of Connecticut from the pernicious practices alleged in the present case. The regulation of advertising that threatens the public’s health, safety, and morals has long been considered a core exercise of the states’ police powers.” Justice Palmer added.

“Accordingly, on the basis of that limited theory, we conclude that the plaintiffs have pleaded allegations sufficient to survive a motion to strike and are entitled to have the opportunity to prove their wrongful marketing allegations,” Palmer concluded.

Connecticut law, the court wrote in the majority opinion, “does not permit advertisements that promote or encourage violent, criminal behavior.” While federal law does offer protection for gun manufacturers, the majority wrote, “Congress did not intend to immunize firearms suppliers who engage in truly unethical and irresponsible marketing practices promoting criminal conduct, and given that statutes such as CUTPA are the only means available to address those types of wrongs, it falls to a jury to decide whether the promotional schemes alleged in the present case rise to the level of illegal trade practices and whether fault for the tragedy can be laid at their feet.”

The families’ original lawsuit filed against Remington in 2015, alleged that the company manufactured and marketed a military weapon that ended up in the hands of a civilian.

Bridgeport Superior Court dismissed the lawsuit in 2016, declaring that it “falls squarely within the broad immunity” provided under the PLCAA.

“There is no need for a legal re-examination of the law,” said James Vogts, Remington’s attorney at the time. “Under the law, the manufacturer of the gun used by the criminal that day isn’t responsible legally for his actions.”

Some legal analysts now however say Remington might be held liable under the “negligent entrustment” exception in the law, which defines the “supplying of a qualified product by a seller for use by another person when the seller knows, or reasonably should know, the person to whom the product is supplied is likely to, and does, use the product in a manner involving unreasonable risk of physical injury to the person or others.

Major liberal me outlets, most notably The New York Times, seem positively giddy over the prospect of suing America’s firearms manufacturers out of business.

Times reporters Rick Rojas and Kristin Hussey called today’s Connecticut court ruling a “major blow to the firearms industry on Thursday, clearing the way for a lawsuit against the companies that manufactured and sold the semiautomatic rifle used by the gunman in the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.”

They continued, “The lawsuit mounted a direct challenge to the immunity that Congress granted gun companies to shield them from litigation when their weapons are used in a crime. The ruling allows the case, brought by victims’ families, to maneuver around the federal shield, creating a potential opening to bring claims to trial and hold the companies, including Remington, which made the rifle, liable for the attack.

The 4-3 majority largely upheld arguments made by lawyers for Remington that the company is protected from suit in many instances. The court ruled, however, that Congress did not intend the PLCAA to preclude state law.

Ultimately, the majority said, the plaintiffs should have the opportunity to prove that Remington violated the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act (CUTPA) by marketing a military-style weapon to civilians.

A Connecticut Superior Court judge dismissed the lawsuit in 2016, agreeing with lawyers for Remington that the case falls within the “broad immunity” gun manufacturers and sellers are afforded under the PLCAA. The state Supreme Court decision, however, paves the way for the suit to continue and for lawyers to access internal documents from the firearms companies.

Lawyers for the gunmaker argued that there was no way for Remington to assess the shooter, and therefore no way they could have known what the gun would be used for.

According to the Times, the lawsuit was originally filed in 2014 by nine families of the victims and a teacher who was injured in the shooting. It names gun manufacturers and distributors Bushmaster, Remington, Camfour Holdings LLP, as well as Riverview Gun Sales Inc., the gun shop where the shooter’s mother purchased the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle, and the store’s owner.

Remington Arms filed for bankruptcy in March of 2018, which effectively stalled the lawsuit. In May 2018, the company announced that it had emerged from bankruptcy.

“The decision represents a significant development in the long-running battle between gun control advocates and the gun lobby,” the Times said. “And it stands to have wider ramifications, experts said, by charting a possible legal road map for victims’ relatives and survivors from other mass shootings who want to sue gun companies.”

Edify this morning called the ruling a “high-stakes challenge to gun companies, which have rarely been held liable for crimes committed with their products, and could mark a new front in the battle over gun regulations and corporate accountability. . . An eventual ruling against Remington could establish legal precedent, opening doors for more lawsuits against gun manufacturers, and expose the company’s communications about its marketing plans.”

The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action outlines the issue as follows:

On October 26, 2005, President Bush signed S. 397, the “Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.” Introduced by Sens. Larry Craig (R-ID) and Max Baucus (D-MT), this legislation is a vitally important first step toward ending the anti-gun lobby`s shameless attempts to bankrupt the American firearms industry through reckless lawsuits. Reps. Cliff Stearns (R-FL) and Rick Boucher (D-VA) introduced similar legislation, H.R. 800 in the House of Representatives.

•These suits are intended to drive gunmakers out of business by holding manufacturers and dealers liable for the criminal acts of third parties who are totally beyond their control. Suing the firearms industry for street crime is like suing General Motors for criminal acts involving Buicks.

•These lawsuits seek a broad range of remedies relating to product design and marketing. Their demands, if granted, would create major restrictions on interstate commerce in firearms and ammunition, including unwanted design changes, burdensome sales policies, and higher costs for consumers. While the suits are unwarranted, the firearms industry has had to spend over $200 million in defense.

•Congress has the power-and the duty-to prevent activists from abusing the courts to destroy interstate commerce.

•The bill provides that lawsuits may not be brought against manufacturers and sellers of firearms or ammunition if the suits are based on criminal or unlawful use of the product by a third party. Existing lawsuits must be dismissed.

S. 397 provides carefully tailored protections for legitimate suits:

•The bills expressly allow suits based on knowing violations of federal or state law related to gun sales, or on traditional grounds including negligent entrustment (such as sales to a child or an obviously intoxicated person) or breach of contract. The bill also allows product liability cases involving actual injuries caused by an improperly functioning firearm (as opposed to cases of intentional misuse).

•The Congress has often passed limitations on liability for specific groups, including light aircraft manufacturers, food donors, corporations affected by “Y2K” computer problems, charitable volunteers, health officials, medical implant manufacturers, and makers of anti-terrorism technology.
These lawsuits usurp the authority of the Congress and of state legislators, in a desperate attempt to enact restrictions that have been widely rejected. Thirty-four states have also enacted statutes blocking this type of litigation.
