57 y.o. mentally-ill woman sentenced to 5 mos. for Sandy Hook death threats & belief in conspiracy theories

James Tracy, a former tenured professor at Florida Atlantic University, received many vicious death threats for simply exercising his First Amendment right of free speech on Sandy Hook. (See “Hate mail, death threats sent to Prof. James Tracy for being a Sandy Hook skeptic“)

Not only was nothing done about the death threats Dr. Tracy received to both himself and his young children, FAU saw fit to fire this tenured professor for a trivial administrative reason — that of not filing a piece of paperwork in a timely manner.

Contrast Tracy to the case of Lucy Richards, a 57-year-old mentally-ill, wheelchair-bound woman. Two days ago in Florida, Richards was sentenced to 5 months in prison for issuing death threats by voice- and e-mail to Lenny Pozner, father of alleged Sandy Hook child victim Noah.

Even more troubling is that in sentencing Lucy Richards, U.S. District Judge James I. Cohn, a George W. Bush nominee, pronounced that “no one should cite a conspiracy theory or belief in a hoax in the deaths of 20 children and six adults that occurred at the school,” thereby implicitly criminalizing belief in conspiracy theories.

As if the U.S. government had not been proven to engage in conspiracies again and again. (See Nixon’s Watergate and the Kennedy Administration’s stunning Operation Northwoods as examples.)

Professor James Fetzer received a phone call that Richards had attempted to commit suicide. See his post “CBS NEWS: Woman who threatened parent of Sandy Hook victim sent to jail“.

See also “Sandy Hook hoax: 6 signs that school was closed before massacre“.

By the way, did you know that it was the CIA who, in 1967, coined the term “conspiracy theories” and recommended its use to the media for the express purpose to discredit speculations about the Kennedy assassination? (ZeroHedge)

Cinderella's Broom

A study in contrasts.

In June 2016, three boys, all Muslim migrants,  rape a developmentally disabled five-year-old girl, Jayla Peterson, in Twin Falls, Idaho. The oldest boy films the entire incident.

Months later, it’s as if an actual rape had never happened. The boys are found guilty not of rape, but of lewd sexual conduct. And the proceedings, which were said to involve five hours of commiserating with the boys’ “post-traumatic stress disorder,” are kept secret.

After the sentencing, also kept secret, the judge forbids the family to talk about why they are grievously unhappy with his decision, threatening to jail them if they do. They are treated as if they are the criminals.

Jayla Peterson’s  emotional turmoil is a footnote; not even that, it is as if she never suffered, never experienced pain, will not be changed forever by the terror and humiliation she was forced to endure by…

See moral high-horse Anderson Cooper dry-humped by Madonna

At the second 2016 presidential debate last Sunday night, CNN’s Anderson Cooper got on the moral high horse.

With his prissy lips pursed, Cooper sternly and repeatedly demanded that Donald Trump admit he’d sexually assaulted women, based on what Trump said about wanting to kiss beautiful women in that “p*ssy tape” that Paul Ryan’s advisor, Dan Senor, so helpfully leaked to the Washington Post.

See “GOP stabs Trump in back: Ryan advisor leaked ‘p*ssy’ tape; voter registration drives sabotaged

Tsk, tsk, Anderson Cooper.

The moral high horse really doesn’t suit you, given your cavorts on stage with Madonna as her bitch, being spanked and dry-humped by that demon-possessed woman.

As Clash Daily puts it:

Don’t you just love it when the left gets self-righteous? Isn’t it a hoot?

These are the same people that tell us that:

  • There is no such thing as sin
  • Morality is relative
  • Sex is the be-all, end-all of existence
  • Killing unborn children is TOTALLY okay

But, then again, tolerance only extends to those that they agree with.

If you disagree, you’re ‘intolerant’ and some sort of ‘-phobic’. […] Hey, Anderson! Maybe you shouldn’t be so ‘judgy’.

By the way, Anderson Cooper, it’s now more than two years since Professor James Tracy sent you an invitation via certified mail, to revisit Newtown. You had publicly attacked Tracy for his skepticism about the official Sandy Hook narrative. You even endangered his safety, and the safety of his wife and four young children, by disclosing their home address.

Shame on you.

UPDATE:

Anderson Cooper was also given a dry BJ by so-called comedienne Kathy Griffin on CNN’s live New Year’s Eve broadcast on December 31, 2012.

Sandy Hook will be used for Gun Control at 2016 Democratic National Convention

We already know the MSM are willing accomplices of the Left. The latest example is a Democratic National Committee (DNC) email on an agreement with a Politico reporter to preview his story on Hillary Clinton’s campaign before he sent it to his editors. (See “Hacked emails show Democratic National Committee to be corrupt arm of Hillary“)

Now all signs are pointing to gun control being a center piece in Hillary Clinton’s upcoming acceptance speech as her party’s presidential nominee. Gun Control is her rebuttal to Donald Trump’s call to Law and Order.

The signs point to the reinvocation of the Dec. 14, 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting by the media and by the Democratic National Convention that begins today. The supposed shooting deaths of 20 little children will be used to tug on Americans’ heartstrings for gun control.

Sandy Hook gun control

Here are the signs:

1. Three days ago in the space of just one hour, CNN obligingly flooded YouTube with one hundred (!) Sandy Hook videos. (H/t Barry Soetoro Esq.)

See also “CNN deception: Live aerial footage of police running into Sandy Hook was of another school“.

2. The Democratic Convention will feature Sandy Hook speakers, including Erica Lafferty Smegielski, the daughter of slain Sandy Hook Elementary School principal Dawn Hochsprung who, we are told, was the first to be killed by Adam Lanza. Curiously, the dead Hochsprung managed to give an interview about the massacre to Newtown’s local newspaper, Newtown Bee. More curious still is the fact that the cache date of the Bee interview was December 13, a day before the massacre. See:

Hitler children gun control

Please don’t fall for Hillary’s ruse.

The Alternative Media have conducted diligent and exhaustive research on Sandy Hook, showing it was an elaborate false-flag to promote gun control. For exercising their First Amendment right of free speech, the researchers have endured online harassment, abuse, and death threats. Some paid a heavy price: film-maker William Shanley was arrested and imprisoned; tenured professor, Dr. James Tracy, was fired by Florida Atlantic University. (See “Sandy Hook: The hounding of Prof. James Tracy”)

Florida Atlantic U. fired James Tracy for Sandy Hook, but supports professor advocating Sharia law and cutting off of hands

Florida Atlantic University (FAU) in Boca Raton is that august institution of higher education that used a trivial administrative excuse — that he failed to submit a form to his college dean in a timely manner — to fire a tenured professor, Dr. James Tracy.

Of course, everyone knows that the real reason for the dismissal is Tracy’s well-researched and well-reasoned skepticism about the official narrative we are given about the Sandy Hook school shooting of December 14, 2012. See:

It is a testament to FAU’s institutional integrity and commitment to its faculty that when Dr. Tracy was still an employee of FAU, the university stood by and did nothing when he received an avalanche of hate mail, some of which threatened bodily harm to him and his children — which is a criminal act. (It is a federal crime, USC 18.41 Sec. 875(c), punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, to transmit any communication containing a threat to injure the person of another, via email and other means of communication.)

Further demonstrating its academic priorities and impeccable ethics, the bright minds of Florida Atlantic University’s administration saw fit to host a panel discussion in which one of its professors lauded Sharia Law, capital punishment, and punishing thieves by cutting off their hands.

Breitbart reports that on May 24, 2016, FAU Computer and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Associate Professor Bassem Alhalabi was part of a panel discussion on alleged Islamophobia, hosted by Florida Atlantic University’s Muslim Student Association.

Alhalabi said:

“Where there is no Sharia, Islamic Sharia, they die in dozens and hundreds every day because of organized crime. People kill people, other people or steal pizza for $10 and so – so when Islamic Shariah is saying about capital punishment – so even though it sounds like it is severe but if that is the solution to prevent any crimes, then it still has a lot of rules and regulations. I will just mention one and stop here, which is let’s say cutting off the hands of a person if they steal. It sounds very severe. It sounds very barbaric, I know. But if takes one or two people to have their hands cut off, and then there’s no more stealing and there’s no more stealing in the whole nation – that’s a much better resolution than having hundreds of people die every day.”

Alhalabi is from Syria. He has worked at FAU since 1996.

On January 26, 2011, Alhalabi pled guilty to assault and battery in March of 2010 on J. Mark Campbell of the Florida Security Council and investigative journalist Joe Kaufman.

In April 2011, about 50 people protested at the entrance of FAU, calling for the university to fire Alhalabi for his terrorist ties,

The next day after the protest, Florida Atlantic University issued a statement in support of Alhalabi.

New breed of crisis actors: Fake political protesters

Americans didn’t know about a curious species of fakery called Crisis Actors until the Dec. 14, 2012 Sandy Hook false-flag shooting massacre. (See “Remarkable resemblance of Sandy Hook victims and professional crisis actors“)

Located in Denver, Colorado, a business that calls itself VisionBox Crisis Actors provides professionals (“trained players and actors”) who impersonate real-life people in simulations of mass casualty events, such as government drills, shootings and bombings, to help “schools and first responders create realistic drills, full-scale exercises, high-fidelity simulations, and interactive 3D films.” As an Oct. 31, 2012 feature story on the Crisis Actors website which I found on January 1, 2013, once boasted:

A new group of actors is now available nationwide for active shooter drills and mall shooting full-scale exercises, announced Visionbox, Denver’s leading professional actors studio.

Visionbox Crisis Actors are trained in criminal and victim behavior, and bring intense realism to simulated mass casualty incidents in public places.

The actors’ stage acting experience, ranging from Shakespeare to contemporary American theater, enables them to “stay in character” throughout an exercise, and improvise scenes of extreme stress while strictly following official exercise scenarios. […]

Visionbox Crisis Actors can also play the role of citizens calling 911 or mall management, or posting comments on social media websites.

For more, see my post “Professional crisis actors simulate mass casualty events“.

Curiously, since the phenomenon of crisis actors was uncovered after the Sandy Hook false-flag, crisis actors seem to have gone underground. VisionBox revised its website, removing any mention of crisis actors. But this video that was uploaded to YouTube on Dec. 23, 2012, says the same things about VisionBox which I had reported:

Professor James Tracy also recently discovered that Crisisactors.org, the website established to represent the collaboration between the Visionbox professional actors studio and FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute, went dormant after August 2014. (See “Where Have All the Crisis Actors Gone?“)

To add to the insanity, there are even amputee crisis actors, such as those from a business called Amputees in Action, which provides “trained professional amputee actors” who promise to “remain in character” “for the film and screen industries and for emergency and military services training simulations” with “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.” (For more, see my post ““)

BaumanAlleged victim of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, Jeff Bauman, is an example of an amputee crisis actor. See the reasons why in “Hollywood producer Nathan Folks says Boston Bombing’s a false flag”.

Now add fake political protests and protesters to the things that crisis actors do.

Jamie Taete reports for Vice, Aug. 6, 2013, that Crowds on Demand is a company that will organize a crowd for you, on demand. The crowd can be fake fans for some celebrity or aspiring celebrity, or fake protesters for a cause.

Since the company’s fake fan events are “super secret,” Taete attended instead “a fake protest” called “Purge Day USA” (to purge mental health problems) which the company organized in Los Angeles “in coordination with a charity” to “raise awareness about mental health issues”. Here’s a photo of the fake protesters:

fake protesters of Crowds in Demand in Los Angeles

Crowds on Demand’s founder and CEO Adam Swart said that there were about 20 protesters at the fake protest and all of them were “provided by me”. The fake protesters were paid $15 an hour. Swart charges “a couple thousand dollars” to organize a fake protest with about 20 actors, but he gives discounts to charities.

To critics who say Crowds on Demand is unethical, Swart, who is only 24 years old , openly and brazenly admits: “Is it misleading? Yes. That’s the idea.”

Adam Swart

A more recent example of fake protesters is an ad on Craig’s List soliciting actors to impersonate protesters at Trump rallies.

As reported by ZeroHedge on March 30, 2016, the ad was placed by “I’m feelin’ the Bern” Bernie Sanders supporters who promise to provide shuttle buses, parking, and protest signs, as well as $15/hour to the actors. Here’s a screenshot of the Craig’s List ad:

Bernie ad for paid anti-Trump protesters

The above ad has since been removed by its author, but the Daily Caller points out the ad is part of a recurring pattern of anti-Trump Craigslist ads soliciting and paying people to protest at Trump rallies. But Daily Caller claims that the fake protesters are hired not by Sanders, but by Hillary Clinton’s people, and paid for by the usual suspects George Soros, MoveOn.org, and Progressive Auto Insurance‘s Jonathan Lewis:

The Establishment on both the left and the right, who want to disenfranchise the millions of Republican voters who support Donald Trump, have blamed the staged riots near Trump rallies on Trump or on Bernie Sanders. That’s like blaming the Russians for the Reichstag Fire. Bernie has little to do with these manufactured protests. This is a Clinton operation, a faux protest.

False flag operations have long been common in politics, but these riots are poisonous to the electorate, intentionally designed to turn violent and stifle free speech.

This free speech-busting goon squad operation is directed by supporters of Hillary Clinton. It is paid for mostly by George Soros and MoveOn.org and pushed by David Brock at Media Matters for America. It’s also funded by reclusive billionaire Jonathan Lewis, who was identified by the Miami New Times as a “mystery man.” He inherited roughly a billion dollars from his father Peter Lewis (founder of Progressive Insurance Company).

A march and demonstration against Trump at Trump Tower essentially fizzled Saturday when only 500 “protesters” of the promised 5000 showed up. Infiltrating the crowd, I learned most were from MoveOn or the Occupy movement. Soap was definitely in short supply in this crowd. Several admitted answering a Craig’s list ad paying $16.00 an hour for protesters.

Hillary understands that Trump would lose the votes of certain establishment Republicans if he were the nominee. On the other hand, it doesn’t matter, because of his crossover outreach. In Michigan, Democrats and independents who have lost their jobs because of disastrous globalist trade deals like NAFTA are lining up to vote for Donald.

anti-Trump protests

And so, when you see an anti-Trump protest or another mass shooting, don’t believe your eyes. The “protesters” and “victims” — including amputees! — you see may just be acting.

Sandy Hook: The hounding of Prof. James Tracy

Reblogged from the James Fetzer blog

The Hounding of Dr. James Tracy, an honorable man who deserves your support

by Jim Fetzer and Dr. Eowyn

Hound (verb): To harass, persecute, or pursue relentlessly.

18 days ago, on January 25, 2016, warrior for Sandy Hook truth Dr. James Tracy announced on his Memory Hole Blog the instauration of the James Tracy Legal Defense Fund.

Support the James Tracy Legal Defense Fund

The purpose of the James Tracy Legal Defense Fund is stated as follows:

Academic freedom and free speech are the basic and shared tenets of free and democratic societies. On January 6, 2016 Florida Atlantic University terminated Dr. James Tracy’s tenured position as Associate Professor of Journalism and Media Studies, ostensibly for failing to fill out and file paperwork in a timely manner. Tracy began his employment at FAU as Assistant Professor in 2002, and was granted tenure in 2008. His 13-year record of teaching, research, and service-oriented contributions at the South Florida university has been consistently adjudged as excellent by his peers.

Many observers contend that Tracy’s firing stemmed from his articles and commentary made on his personal blog, Memory Hole, interrogating the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre of December 14, 2012 and similar controversial events. Beginning in early 2013 Dr. Tracy became a target of many mainstream journalistic outlets that have routinely failed to provide objective and responsible investigative coverage of such incidents. Dr. Tracy’s abrupt termination suggests a broader affront to free speech and academic freedom not only at FAU, but for free thinkers throughout the US and world.

The James Tracy Legal Defense Fund was established as a nonprofit entity by Dr. James Tracy and other concerned scholars in January 2016. The central purpose of the Tracy Legal Defense Fund is to generate revenue toward retaining competent legal representation for researching and ascertaining the facts pertinent to Dr. Tracy’s case.

Florida Atlantic University first moved to terminate tenured professor Tracy on December 16, 2015, less than a week after the (Florida) Sun-Sentinel saw fit to publish an op/ed by Lenny and Veronique Pozner, parents of alleged Sandy Hook child victim Noah.

In their op/ed, the Pozners accused Tracy of “harassment” by sending a certified letter demanding that Lenny produce proof that Noah really is dead. The Pozners’ allegation has been repeated by countless subsequent news reports and readers’ comments, including an “expert” on academic tenure who was interviewed on air by NBC and cited Tracy’s alleged “harassment” as sufficient grounds for a university firing a tenured professor.

In writing the op/ed, the Pozners’ intent was evidenced by the word “target” in the title of their Sun-Sentinel op/ed: “Sandy Hook Massacre 3rd Anniversary: Two parents target FAU conspiracy theorist“. Target for what? — to get Tracy fired, an objective in which the Pozners succeeded. To quote their op/ed:

Although FAU issued a “reprimand” to Tracy for the irresponsible and insensitive comments he made in late 2012, he has shown no remorse and continues to conceive conspiracy theories out of each new mass shooting . . . . It is time FAU reassess if their priorities properly reflect the best interests of their staff, donors and — most importantly — their students.

The Pozners accuse Tracy of “harassment” on the grounds that he had sent a certified letter to Lenny Pozner demanding proof that Noah was really dead, a demand that caused the Pozners “pain and anguish.” As they wrote in their op/ed:

In fact, Tracy is among those who have personally sought to cause our family pain and anguish by publicly demonizing our attempts to keep cherished photos of our slain son from falling into the hands of conspiracy theorists.

Tracy even sent us a certified letter demanding proof that Noah once lived, that we were his parents, and that we were the rightful owner of his photographic image. We found this so outrageous and unsettling that we filed a police report for harassment.

But Tracy did no such thing. Instead, his letter to Lenny was a request for evidence that Lenny indeed has copyright ownership of Noah’s photographic images. Claiming copyright, Lenny has successfully prevailed on YouTube and WordPress to remove videos and blogs containing Noah’s images, including Tracy’s memoryholeblog.com and Fellowship of the Minds.

Lenny’s claim to copyright is questionable on multiple grounds because many images of Noah are already published in countless news reports, as well as on Facebook page that Lenny had set up to memorialize Noah. Just “google” Noah Pozner and you’ll find plenty of his images on the Internet.

All of which means Noah’s images are already in the public domain, which makes Lenny’s copyright infringement complaints dubious, as well as highly selective. He doesn’t want some bloggers and YouTubers to publish those images, but it’s okay if others do — including the people who put up an iconic image of Noah as one of the victims of another school shooting thousands of miles away in Peshawar, Pakistan, two years after Sandy Hook.

In other words, given the wide availability of Noah’s images on the Internet, it is not unreasonable for Tracy to ask that Lenny produce proof of his copyright claim. That precisely was the objective of the March 30, 2015 letter that Tracy sent to Lenny via USPS certified mail, which was certified in order that Tracy be assured that his letter was properly delivered and received. Below is the letter (click here for the letter in PDF format):

Tracy letter to Pozner1Tracy letter to Pozner2Tracy letter to Pozner3

In his letter, Tracy recounted that he had received an email from his Internet service provider of Lenny’s copyright infringement complaint for an image of Noah that was published in a January 2, 2015 post on Memory Hole. Tracy noted that the image in question, “in addition to its broad circulation following the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre event on December 14, 2012, was published by British Broadcasting Corporation and numerous other outlets, receiving similar worldwide circulation due to its inclusion in worldwide coverage of the December 16, 2014 Taliban attack on the Army Public School and Degree College in Peshawar Pakistan.”

Tracy then said that he had complied with Lenny’s request and “voluntarily removed the image in question.” However, since Lenny has made numerous similar copyright complaints, all directed against “parties that have publicly questioned and analyzed the Sandy Hook massacre event,” which has “the potential weight to stifle free speech and the traffic of ideas,” Tracy therefore asks the following from Lenny:

“1. Proof of your identity via copy of a government-issued document, such as a state driver’s license or passport.

2. Proof of your relationship to the deceased party, Noah Pozner, whose alleged photograph appears in the image in question referenced above. 

3. Proof of your ownership of said image via the signed and notarized statement from a qualified licensed forensic expert substantiating your legal ownership of said image, including the date and time of the image’s capture.”

Please note that nowhere in Tracy’s letter did he “demand proof that Noah once lived” or question whether Noah really is dead, but that’s exactly what the Pozners’ op/ed accused Tracy of doing. And on the basis of that false accusation, the Pozners urged Florida Atlantic University to “reassess” its “priorities,” which resulted in FAU’s termination of Tracy’s employment.

If you were James Tracy, having lost you tenured professorship on account of the Pozners’ misrepresentation of what you wrote in a letter, would you not appeal? And since Tracy is no longer employed, if you were him, would you not seek donations by good-hearted people in order to mount a legal defense? Tracy did just that, and on January 25, notified the readers of Memory Hole Blog — his personal, university-unaffiliated blog — of the James Tracy Legal Defense Fund. Where else would he give public notice of the fund?

But even that effort is now blocked. Tracy received a letter from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS), dated February 1, 2016, that FDACS had “received information” from someone, unnamed, that Tracy may be in violation of a Florida law, Solicitation of Contributions Act, because he had not registered with the FDACS “prior to soliciting contributions from the public in Florida.” Failure to comply with that law may subject Tracy “to a cease and desist order and fines up to $1000 per violation.” (Read FDACS’ letter here.)

Please consider donating to the James Tracy Legal Defense Fund, no matter how small a sum, if only to send a message to Tracy that he is not alone in this fight. Moonrockbooks.com, which has republished Nobody Died at Sandy Hook, which amazon.com banned, and has now published And Nobody Died in Boston, Either (to both of which James Tracy contributed chapters) have already donated $3,000 to the fund, and will be donating more. There are at least three ways you can donate:

  • By sending a check.
  • With your credit card.
  • Via the Fundly Campaign.
