An Open Letter to FAU Faculty, Staff and Administration about Sandy Hook 43

Updated February 24, 2013

All,

Because James Tracy and I have been attacked as faculty members–I am now retired, while he is not–for speaking out about  Sandy Hook, I would observe that this is a very messy case and that serious questions are being raised about it from a wide range of perspectives.   It is clearly complex and controversial but also falls squarely within Dr. Tracy’s areas of professional competence, which include conspiracy theories and culture, malfeasance by the media and related issues. Tenure was created to protect faculty from the political consequences that might otherwise attend addressing complex and controversial matters of this very kind.

I am very surprised by some of the issues being raised, because, as is common knowledge within academic institutions, faculty NEVER speak for the institution, which is a role that is the exclusive prerogative of the institution’s ADMINISTRATION.  It would reflect well on FAU if your deans and other representatives of the institution were to DEFEND their faculty when they tackle complex and controversial issues like this one, not imply that they may be doing the institution harm.  It would be in the best interests of FAU and the public to stand up for academic freedom and for freedom of inquiry.

Not only that, but I have always assumed that public institutions such as FAU stand for truth, knowledge and justice as this nation’s highest values.  If that is not the case, then I would suggest that that really ought to be made known to prospective students and their parents.  Dr. Tracy is simply attempting to sort out the true from the false about an event that has now become of immense national interest, especially when a major movement is afoot to confiscate semi-automatic weapons from the general population, which is a stunning development contrary to our nation’s history.

Of course, it is difficult to assess a situation when you know very little about it.  There are lots of rumor and speculation, which has even affected the main-stream media.  I was astonished at the intensity with which Anderson Cooper of CNN, in particular, took after Dr. Tracy without knowing the circumstances of the case (apart from the “official account”) or why Dr. Tracy has the right kind of background and expertise to be addressing these issues in a public forum.  When I was attacked in The Duluth News-Tribune a few weeks ago, the paper offered me the chance to respond in its Sunday edition (13 January 2013):

Local view: Why the Sandy Hook shootings matter

By: Jim Fetzer, Duluth News Tribune

When asked whether he believed in conspiracy theories, filmmaker Michael Moore replied, “Only those that are true.” The problem is telling the difference.

Having spent much of the past 20 years in collaborative research on dark events (the JFK assassination, 9/11, Sen. Paul Wellstone’s death), Sandy Hook looks to me like part of an escalating series of covert operations designed to promote public hysteria to incite gun control and subvert the 2nd amendment. Here are some reasons why.

A theory is simply an interpretation of facts in a given case. When the police investigate a crime, they form a theory of the case. In courts of law, prosecutors and defense attorneys usually offer alternative interpretations. With Sandy Hook, figuring out what happened poses special challenges.

The facts are not obvious. There were inconsistencies from scratch. The suspect, Adam Lanza, was a student there; then he was not. His mother was a teacher there; then she was not. The principal called the local paper to report the shooting; then she was among the first to die.

The coroner reported all the dead were shot with a Bushmaster; then NBC News reported that four handguns had been found with the body and that the AR-15 had been left in the car. (Check out YouTube, “Sandy Hook shooting — AR-15 rifle was left in the car!”)

Even if Lanza, 20, had done some shooting, the ratio of kills to targets was remarkable. As a Marine Corps officer, I qualified with a .45 four years in a row and also supervised recruits of his age in their marksmanship training. I don’t see how he could have done it.

Police radio in real-time reported two suspects headed toward the officer calling in, one of whom was apprehended. The other was tracked into the woods, as police helicopter footage shows. We have no idea what became of these suspects. So what happened?

Most likely, Adam Lanza and his mother were killed the day before with Adam Lanza’s body picked up by police. He was attired in a SWAT outfit, including body armor, and stored in the school.

I argue a three-man team entered the school. One was arrested in the school, cuffed and put on the lawn. Two went out a back door; one of them was arrested and the other apparently escaped.

Those arrested currently are not in police custody; their names were never released. That is a telling sign that we are being sold a story based on fiction rather than on fact.

Does anything else matter? Most Americans are unaware the Department of Homeland Security has acquired 1.5 billion rounds of .40 caliber, hollow-point ammunition, which is not even permissible during combat under the Geneva Conventions.

A subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security has issued a study of 680 reports from “fusion centers” that integrate federal, state and local anti-terrorism efforts. It found no evidence of any domestic terrorist activity.

The absence of any terrorist threat and the existence of more than 300 FEMA camps and special boxcars to carry dissidents to them have been deliberately withheld from the public.

Since Homeland Security has no foreign commitments, those camps and ammunition have to be for domestic consumption. Homeland Security appears to be gearing up to conduct a civil war with the American people — but 80 million armed families stand in its way.

What better excuse could there be for banning assault weapons than the slaughter of 20 innocent children? Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., has a gun control proposal that would lead to the confiscation of virtually every semi-automatic weapon in the nation.

That’s my interpretation of Sandy Hook.

Jim Fetzer reports for Veterans Today and is a McKnight Professor Emeritus at the University of Minnesota Duluth.

I recommended that the paper include a list of recommended reading, which it chose not to do.  Here was the list I had proposed:

“From America to Amerika: The End Game” by Jim Fetzer with Dennis Cimino
http://www.veteranstoday.com/2011/12/11/from-america-to-amerika-the-end-game/

On Sandy Hook specifically:

“The Sandy Hook Massacre: Unanswered Questions and Missing Information” by James Tracy
http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-sandy-hook-school-massacre-unanswered-questions-and-missing-information/5316776

“Sandy Hook: Huge Hoax and Anti-Gun ‘Psy Op'” by Jim Fetzer
http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/12/27/sandy-hook-huge-hoax-and-anti-gun-psy-op/

“Sandy Hook:  Analogies with the London 7/7 bombings” by Nicholas Kollerstrom
http://www.veteranstoday.com/2013/01/06/sandy-hook-analogies-with-the-london-77-bombings/

Without studying the case, after all, how could anyone at FAU possibly know whether or not Dr. Tracy is acting responsibly?  After even more research I have conducted with Dennis Cimino, moreover, the situation is actually even worse–as a far more obvious hoax and fraud–than even I had previously surmised.  If you are going to read only one article about it, this is the one to read:

“The Nexus of Tyranny: The Strategy behind Tucon, Aurora, and Sandy Hook” by Dennis Cimino with Jim Fetzer
http://www.veteranstoday.com/2013/01/30/the-nexus-of-tyranny-the-strategy-behind-tucson-aurora-and-sandy-hook/

According to the Social Security Death Index, for example, Adam Lanza actually died the day before the shooting; according to ABC/NBC/CBS, only hand guns were found with his body; and my co-author, who is an expert in electronics, has discovered the CT Statewide Emergency Radio Network was manipulated before the event! That Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York encouraged the passage of draconian gun laws by the legislature over-night–admitting the public would not have stood for it–reflects how serious this has become.

As it happens, I have also done extensive research and publication on complex and controversial issues of comparable interest, including both the assassination of JFK and the atrocities of 9/11.  In those cases, as with Sandy Hook, what we have been told does not hold up to critical scrutiny.  How can academicians contribute to solving problems that the nation confronts if they are being intimidated and cowed by administrators who do not understand the role that the academy should fulfill within the broader context of scholars’ obligations and social responsibility?  Dr. Tracy deserves your support and admiration, not your condemnation.

With appreciation,

Jim

THE REST OF THE STORY

 (1) After posting my “Open Letter” on his blog, James Tracy received the following complaint:

Sent: Thursday, February 14, 2013 12:18 AM

Subject: Reader Comment

Comment: Dear Professor Tracy,

I am writing you to protest the anti-Jewish, anti-Israel bias of James Fetzer.  Without any supporting documentation or proof, he declares in his articles that Israel is responsible for the Sandy Hook massacre and previous staged events.  This is highly irresponsible.  How dare he!

If he has any valid argument or evidence to back up his outrageous claim, he should state it.  Otherwise, he should keep his own hateful opinion to himself and stop trying to indoctrinate  your readers into becoming anti-Semitic bigots.

It seems odd that a retired professor trying to defend your right to free speech would indulge in a verbal hate fest against the Jews.  That is not going to do you or your arguments any favors.  I hope you will remove for this website all of Dr. Fetzer’s articles which contain such offensive remarks, as they have no place here.

(2) He replied to the reader as follows:

I am unaware that Dr. Fetzer made any specific allegation that Jewish or Israeli elements carried out the Sandy Hook massacre. My understanding is that a colleague of his at Veterans Today, Gordon Duff, wrote a brief article discussing talk show host Mike Harris’ December remarks asserting this theory. Perhaps that’s what you mean. Since you are proposing that I censor my blog, if you have any citations in this regard it would be helpful if you could provide these.

(3) The reader wrote back as follows:

Subject: Re: Reader Comment

Thank you very much, Professor Tracy, for responding to my concerns.  Unfortunately, I am rather alarmed that you would not be better informed about what is posted and linked to your own website, especially by a colleague of yours who claims to be trying to support you.

Here are a few citations and there may be more.    First, there is Dr. Fetzer’s article, “The Nexus of Tyranny”, which appears on Veterans Today.  He lists it with an active link in his front-page article on your website, entitled “An Open Letter to FAU Faculty….”   You know the one.  He states:
If you are going to read only one article about it  [Sandy Hook],  this is the one to read:

In “The Nexus of Tyranny…”, Dr. Fetzer does reference Gordon Duff; however, he goes on to add his own opinion regarding Israeli involvement and to link to yet another article of his in which he makes the same allegations.  In Nexus, he writes:

In “Israel’s Plan for World War enters high gear”, Gordon Duff, Senior Editor of Veterans Today, outlines the world-wide implications of the confiscation movement taking place here in the United States and how it possibly fits into the broader Israeli agenda, where those of us who have suggested that the Mossad may have been behind Sandy Hookeven if that was only in part–are looking better and better with the passage of time:
As you can see, he stands with Gordon Duff in blaming Israel at least in part for Sandy Hook!
He does walk it back a bit in the final paragraph of the article, by disassociating himself slightly from his co-author Dennis Cimino.  However, as one who is familiar with propaganda, surely you will agree that by repeating the false and stereotypic accusations, he actually reinforces them.  He writes:
“While Gordon Duff (above) and Dennis Cimino (below) both posit Zionists promoting Israel as the main group wanting to disarm the US general population–both to help their wars and to subordinate the American people to politicians whom they can largely control–there are many other diverse elements in the international banking and domestic gun-confiscating movement whose interests do not always converge with those of Israel, which should be borne in mind in evaluating the situation. The gun agenda has become preeminent–and it is being driven by multiple motives. The roles of the Mossad, the CIA and DHS have become increasingly difficult to sort out, where even our best efforts may fall short.”
And if we click the link in the paragraph first quoted above, which reads “the Mossad may have been behind Sandy Hook”, we find ourselves at another article by Dr. Fetzer, entitled, “Did Mossad death squads slaughter American children at Sandy Hook?”  which he tells us was originally published not as a question but as a declarative statement, without any resistance on his part, even though he knew how provocative a title it was.    And he goes on to write,
Just as the Mossad and US Neo-Cons collaborated in the atrocities of 9/11 and the more recent events at BenghaziBenjamin Netanyahu bears grudges and has been offended by the failure of the US to kowtow to its every whim, including its dedication to manipulating us to attack Iranwhich has no justification. I think Texe Marrs has it right:  Zionism is the gravest threat to world peace and to domestic tranquility, where there are signs that our own leaders are finally figuring it out.“

(4) James replied that he was forwarding her complaints to me for my response, which was as follows:

Dear ___________,

So you are now an expert on Veterans Today as well as Sandy Hook?  What I find rather remarkable is how you assume that you are some kind of moral arbitrator of the universe.  It is a common debate tactic to go on the offense when you are at fault. It seems to me that your position is one of “guilt by association”, where you are holding Professor Tracy responsible for the opinions of others, who are, like me, also entitled to freedom of speech and to freedom of inquiry about all these things.

Cases like this–which are complex and controversial–qualify as severe tests of our commitment to those values.  Freedom of speech and freedom of inquiry do not exist to allow academicians and scholars to reiterate innocuous opinions that are widely held, but to inquire about situations that may not be as they have been presented as being. Professor Tracy and I do not have to agree about every issue in order to agree about some, including the core values essential to universities.

Professor Tracy and I are both trying to sort out what happened at Sandy Hook. The article to which you object was originally entitled, “Sandy Hook: The rest of the story”.  I did not choose the title used.  And the passage you cite was a quote from someone else.  None of your complaints about me dispute the points I was making about why the university should be supporting Professor Tracy.  Instead, you seem intent upon making a case for anti-Semitism when there is little case to be made.  I am not anti-Semitic, but I am very critical of the role of Israel in world affairs today.

I cannot help but notice that you seem to be highly selective in the points you make. I have also written about Israeli complicity in 9/11, by the way, including “9/11 and the Neo-Con Agenda”, “Is 9/11 research ‘anti-Semitic’?”, “Peeling the 9/11 Onion: Layers of Plots within Plots” (with Preston James), and “James H. Fetzer: 9/11 IRAN REVIEW interview”. Another he has published is “9/11 and Zion: What was Israel’s role?”  But if Israel was involved in 9/11, should we not be addressing it?

In addition to being a journalist for Veterans Today, I am the founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth.  I organized its first national conference in Madison in 2007 and its first international conference in Vancouver in 2012.  I also edited its first book, THE 9/11 CONSPIRACY (2007), and I have published widely about 9/11.  What has struck me most about your email to Professor Tracy is your complete failure to distinguish between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism.  Is this a difference you don’t understand?

VT and I are both anti-Zionist but are not anti-Semitic.  Since you are reading some of my articles, where do you find me dismissing the opinions of others or their value as human beings on the basis of their ethnic heritage or religious faith?  I and others at VT are critics of the actions and policies of the State of Israel, including of course its grossly abusive treatment of the Palestinian people.  That is NOT anti-Semitism.

It is not anti-Semitic to raise objections to the violation of the rights of Palestinians and repeated violations of UN mandates.  A rather large and growing segment of the world’s population regards Israel as running the largest concentration camp in the world at Gaza.  It bulldozed peace activist Rachel Corrie to death, and its IDF forces are known for picking off Palestinian children for sport.  You abuse the word, but it properly applies to such actions by the Israeli government.  They ARE filth!

As for Sandy Hook, Mike Harris and Gordon Duff have also suggested that Israel may have played a role, where Duff has cited satellite footage that traces a van from the school back to Greenwich Village and a “safe house” run by the Mossad, which was found to contain neo-Nazi literature.  Israel is known to commit what are called “false flag” attacks.  They go back to the attack on the King David Hotel in 1946 by Irgun terrorists dressed as Arabs and include the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty in 1967.  For more, see “False Flag attacks in Argentina: 1992 and 1994″.

As you are no doubt aware, the ADL has attacked me, Gordon Duff, Alan Sabrosky and Kevin Barrett as anti-Semitic for pointing out Israel’s role in 9/11, but that is a charge that, as in this instance, has no foundation.  I find it ironic that, in classifying me as an “anti-Semitic 9/11 conspiracy theorist”, the ADL cites my article, “Is 9/11 research ‘anti-Semitic’?”, in which I refute that allegation.  If you can find cases in which I display anti-Semitism rather than anti-Zionism, then please point them out.

Indeed, reading your messages, they could have been penned by the ADL.  They display no concern for the issues of freedom of speech and freedom of inquiry that are at stake here.  I am grateful to Professor Tracy for speaking out about Sandy Hook, but I am less sanguine about your attacks on me.  Have you, for example, taken any steps to affirm his rights in this case as opposed to attacking someone who has actually done that?  I have found scant value in your comments to date.

With best wishes,

Jim

APPENDIX: ON SEMITES AND ANTI-SEMITISM

By Dennis Cimino

[NOTE: Issues raised in the complaints about my “Open Letter” about anti-Semitism are so important that, when Dennis send me an extended commentary for publication below, I asked him to rewrite it and now publish it as an extension of my article (17 February 2013).]

My problem with conflation of a religion with a genetic or biological link to a piece of land is a bit more along the lines of denouncing most zionist jews for their beliefs that they have an entitlement to Palestine above and beyond what the indigenous people, who are Palestinians and some even muslims, actually do have, as it has been their home for centuries, unlike the usurpers who are for the most part, not truly of judean roots at all, but ashkenazi jews from the area between the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea, where about 90 or more percent of the alleged ‘chosen ones’ have come.

With regard to the vehement attacks that maintain that we have wrongly pegged the involvement of the MOSSAD on U.S. soil–and in fact, it’s influence in the U.S.–one need only look at the absolute totality of FACTS that support the MOSSAD has been a key and pivotal player in 9/11 and, in fact, in many other attacks on Americans over years, dating back to 1967 when MOSSAD was instrumental in guiding the IDF to the conclusion that it needed to attack the U.S.S. Liberty in June of that year and attempt to initiate a thermonuclear war between the U.S. and Egypt by doing so.

Many other incidents of MOSSAD attacks on, not only Americans, but citizens of other nations, which were fomented in Israel and blamed on other nationalities, have since taken place and certainly it is not unreasonable to blame the MOSSAD for it’s direct involvement in DHS and FEMA today, via organizations such as S.I.T.E. and others such as In Q TEL, who, quite rightly, along with at least one other nationwide phone billing company, have been involved within the United States conducting drift-net spying and the blackmailing of U.S. politicians for decades.

Given all the dynamics of who is doing this, it is not outrageous nor out of the question to pin the tail on Israel for most terrorist acts globally, with of course the ‘Wag the Dog’ issue of the United States gleefully killing people with drones at the behest of ‘Israeli First’ people in the U.S. Federal Apparatus, such as Sen. Diane Feinstein and Mr. John Brennan, currently being considered for CIA Director. If one looks at the dynamics of how both WWI and WWII were started and, for that matter, the Zionist influence of Ashkenazi jews, such as Bernard Baruch, upon a sitting U.S. President, one only need wonder if the United States would have ever used nuclear weapons on Japan, had it not been a major part of Baruch’s ear bending, in the closing days of that war, upon Harry S. Truman.

We know today that the Japanese were in the process of arranging a surrender when inexplicably the Army Air Corps dropped two nuclear devices on a country which was in the process of capitulation. Too harsh to blame this on ashkenazism and organized jewry in the U.S. How about the diversion of fissile grade enriched uranium from NUMEC to Dimona, again, by more Ashkenazi jews named Shapiro? Too harsh still? Better yet, let’s look at the Rothschilds banksters and their role in the creation of Israel. Rothschilds matriculated out of the Frankfurt AM MEIN ghetto’s as loan sharks and brothel owners, in around 1747 or so, and their roots are Ashkenazi, not sepharadi or Judean. Interesting coincidence? Not on your life.

Our research has proven that most of the involved players who did these elaborate staged hoaxes in Tucson, Aurora and Sandy Hook were predominantly ashkenazi jews, likely to be more khazarian than sephardic, based on their skin color and their facial characteristics. They are not judean rooted jews, but per the now very documented work of Arthur Koestler and one more recent Johns Hopkins researcher, are clearly ashkenazi jews, with virtually no real roots to the original descendants of the holy land by any bloodlines.

Translated, what I am trying to say for the record is that it would so appear that the heavy hand of ZIONISM in the United States is not driven by true ‘jews’ who were jews by bloodline, but more modern day, european jews who are especially not with any verifiable linkage to the judean jews who inhabited the area known now as Palestine more than 2,000 years ago.

What is unclear is why the have such an appetite for subjugating people in other countries they matriculate into and live in when peaceful coexistence is much more likely to engender harmony and peace over warfare for profit, as these ashkenazi jews seem to be so focused on for the lion’s share of at least 237 years or so in modern times. More importantly it is very very clear that virtually all of the global wars have been foisted upon the earth by organized jewry tied to the Rothschilds banksters of London. Why?

That question may never be answered by any of us, but it surely not ‘anti semitic’ to decry the apparent character flaws of people who conflate a religion belief into a heritage and or an ancestral claim to land they never came from in the first place, such as is the case with zionist jews who portend that they have a blood right to Palestine, when they have never had any verified link to Palestine over the indigenous and rightful inhabitants, who are known as and are the very semitic ‘Palestinians’.

Furthermore, since Jim Fetzer seems to have strong reservations about calling out or citing these facts of life, which I do not, there is a clear divergence in our beliefs. He has a belief that for some reason it is unfair to so label ashkenazi jews as FAKE JEWS when in fact that is the best way I can come up with to so describe a race of people from a much removed from Palestine piece of land that is between the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea, formerly known as Khazaria from ancient translated documents that show this to be correct and factual.

My point is this: Most of the jewry in the world today, more than 90 percent, is ashkenazi and non sephardic or non judean, and therefore has no valid claim to turf that they do not hail from, and that this ‘chosen’ tribe (as they think of themselves) has been thrown out of so many nations, to date, about 109 of them so far, for strong cultural differences that rub the peoples in their adoptive homelands the very wrong way.

Today they are destroying the United States from within and wish to disarm it. Is it ‘anti semitic’ to decry this as fact? I think not. Though Professor Fetzer seems to feel this is too harsh of a condemnation of a fictional and highly dubious claim by these zionist jews that anyone who points this out is an anti semite. I am not an anti semite. I just have no desire to mince words or pussyfoot around with the notion that zionist jews are destroying and now are disarming the nation that I was born into. It is not relevant that many of them were born here, when they hold allegiance to a government that flies a blue and white flag with a six pointed star.

  1. Even the sim;lest of minds such as mine know that the truth according to the government and much of those who are supposed to represent or lead us is far different than what is the real truth. If we are told somethings enough many we believe it is truth . Thank you proffessor for trying to bring light to a very dark matter…

    • Mr.Tracey I believe a couple of thousand shills oh you an apology..

      “Sandy Hook DA cites ‘potential suspects,’ fears safety of witnesses 05 Feb 2013 Connecticut State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky has argued that unsealing warrants in the Sandy Hook case might “seriously jeopardize” the investigation by disclosing information known only to other “potential suspects.” Sedensky said that unsealing the warrants would also: “identify persons cooperating with the investigation, thus possibly jeopardizing their personal safety and well-being.” The statement by the CT prosecutor’s office is the first indication from state authorities that Adam Lanza may have not acted alone. The statement was made in support of a motion to continue the seal on the results of five search warrants for 90 more days.”

  2. Mr. Fetzer, your assumption that public institutions such as FAU stand for truth, knowledge and justice, or that the United States values such things is false.
    Government-run institutions serve the governments that runs them. For over a hundred years the purpose of the United States government has been to extract wealth from lower classes by force and transfer that wealth to Elites.
    The purpose of government training centers such as FAU is to support that goal. The massive wealth disparity we see today is testament to the success of this program.
    I encourage you to turn away from the government narrative and support private, non-government education of young people .

    • If they are on our side then let’s deal with the problem of “public”/ “private” later-on. I know there are members from other academic institutions that read this blog. Please do the right thing and start researching these subjects and making a stand. These guys have been sticking their necks out and it is about time that others in positions of respect and authority do the same. At this point, frankly, I have lost all hope in academic institutions. Please prove me wrong and settle this score. Or have morals and ethics completely disintegrated?

      As for Dr. Tracy, please keep up the good work. You do have much support. And also big thanks to Mr. Fetzer.

    • Professor Fetzer’s theory is, in the absence of the findings of a competent forensic investigation, conceivable, but not particularly plausible. It would be better, surely, for those concerned to elucidate events at Sandy Hook to focus on the evidence, the evidence of evidence concealed, the actions of those who seek to make political capital of Sandy Hook and of those who seek to create distractions of various kinds, including the propagation of “outrageous conspiracy theories” that may bring discredit on those intent on serious inquiry.

      Hollow point bullets, incidentally, were outlawed by the Hague convention of 1988, not the Geneva Convention.

      • Reply to Canspeccy’s Feb 6 posting: I think you’re right, but I’m torn. I want to be understated and rational & reflect well on the idea of being skeptical of media-& -govt-as-captured-by-the-bankers. But like many of us I’m isolated and it’s such an enormous relief to be able to vent. I do agree that you’re right in all you say in this post. Thx

    • Um, ok. Then could you name one original discovery Jim Fetzger has made to 9/11 research, other than split the Scholars for 9/11 Truth completely in half and leave an American hero like BYU Physics Professor Steve Jones on the sidelines of his own organization? Can you spell “controlled opposition” who was hired on exactly February 1st?

    • reply to michaelfury: I haven’t yet looked in detail at your extensive post on 9-11, but you are obviously interested in the documentation which was hidden by the 9-11 demolitions. So I think you will be interested in http://tv.globalresearch.ca/2012/11/911-exposed-confronting-evidence
      It’s a “different” 9-11 expose: Exact targets of “planes” coincided with destruction of securities investigation data, including Project Hammer securities, used to plunder Russia during USSR breakup. Also looting of gold and what happened to Bldgs 4 & 6.

  4. Canspeccy,

    The first part of my post was censored so the comment you responded to is meaningless. This is just one of six alternative theories that have been publicly stated.

    Instead of going around and around in a meaningless academic exercise, I propose to Professor Tracy that we pull together financial resources and hire a private investigator (like Dylan Avery did regarding the 9/11 Barry Jennings issue).

    If we use this blog as a launching point, I’ll mail a check for $100 to Professor Tracy immediately – it would just take 50 of us to come up with $5000 or so, a pretty good start to hire a Connecticut-based detective (former cop?).

    Other than the couple who visited Sandy Point, there are no recommendations on how to move forward after being convinced things don’t add up.

    By the way, isn’t screening comments on a truth seeking blog, well, a bit hypocritical? Thanks.

    • I think it would be helpful if you would address the question about evidence in support of your claim that Peter Lanza was due to appear before a Senate committee concerned with fixing LIBOR.

      I doubt if a private investigation financed on the scale you are speaking of would change anything. The independent investigations conducted after 9/11 collectively involved millions of dollars of time freely provided by pilots, architects, scholars and others and they have established the improbability of the US Government’s account of that event.

      Independent evaluation of Sandy Hook may have the same result. But no investigation conducted independently of the government will result in charges of criminal conspiracy or treason being brought against government officials or their agents — at least as long as the government stands. And democratic government today is always bi-partisan, which means that the government never really falls.

      • http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/aurora-theater-shooting-victims-harassed-conspiracy-theorists-162623463.html

        You seem to be hinting at the notion that some posters are disinforming, or posing as authentic skeptics when in fact they’re just attempting to ‘muddy the waters’ or give skeptics the appearance of illegitimacy, emotional imbalance, etc. Does anyone have an opinion about the above
        claim by some of the Aurora shooting’s survivors? One thing I noticed in the article is that the District Attorney wants the gag order lifted which conceals the identities of these people complaining, Why would the party representing their interests want that? It just struck me as odd, given that the complaint is about ‘conspiracy theorists’ supposedly finding and harassing or encouraging people to harass survivors.

        I’m very suspicious that some of the websites or people on them allegedly harassing survivors are plants, if not most.

      • You seem to be hinting at the notion that some posters are disinforming, or posing as authentic skeptics when in fact they’re just attempting to ‘muddy the waters’ or give skeptics the appearance of illegitimacy, emotional imbalance, etc.

        If people make allegations suggestive of conspiracy that they are unable or unwilling to support with plausible evidence, they serve to undermine the credibility of all those who raise legitimate questions about what happened at Sandy Hook. Whether this is done due to inattention to logic and available evidence, or with the intention of deliberately discrediting any skeptical inquiry is a matter that each must judge for themselves.

        Advancing a hypothesis concerning a conspiracy is a different matter, although skeptics should proceed cautiously, first by making absolutely clear what is hypothesis and what is allegation as to the facts, and second, by advancing only hypotheses that have plausibility in light of available evidence.

        I do not believe the contention that the police took Adam Lanza, dead or alive, to Sandy Hook Elementary school is a reasonable hypothesis in light of the evidence so far made known. Of course it might have happened, but as far as I am aware, and as far as Professor Fetzer has indicated, there is no evidence to support the suggestion.

  5. This is excellent work Dr. Fetzer. Thanks for all your time and effort in looking for the truth. History has proven again and again, that the US citizens are not be told the truth.

  6. Bravo to your letter. It seems like it takes courage now to question authority. The reason the USA is a still a great place to live is we do have the ability to speak freely. Freedom of the press has really been relagated to those who are not afraid to ask hard questions and to do investigative journalism. Woodward and Bernstein, where are you when we need you? We don’t need pandering journalists who don’t even know how to ask the right questions, and are too busy looking at their cue cards and being told what to say.

  7. “We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. . . . It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”

    “For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it”

  8. Once again, great job to all involved. Keep up the good work and do all you can to get this information and questions to the general public. Relative information, there is a petition at whitehouse.gov to release security camera footage from S.H. since a new security system was installed prior and included cameras. I hope all who read these blogs will google it or go scan through the petitions and find it and pass it along. Obama changed petition signatures needed from 25000 to 100000 before it gets, uh, passed or reviewed or whatever. But that in itself is an insult to the american people and is worthy of review as well but please spread the word and keep up the good work.

  9. Most excellent letter! I would hope that at least 1 of my multiple teens can look forward to an on-line or in person class by Dr. Tracy. We appreciate your and Dr. Tracy’s bravery — and we stand with you.

  10. This from Prof. James Fetzer:

    Actually, it was The Hague Convention of 1899. But consider the following:

    http://www.infowars.com/dhs-purchases-21-6-million-more-rounds-of-ammunition/

    February 7, 2013
    The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase a further 21.6 million rounds of ammunition to add to the 1.6 billion bullets it has already obtained over the course of the last 10 months alone, figures which have stoked concerns that the federal agency is preparing for civil unrest.

    • Interesting snippet of info out of the CT Attorney’s Office. Thanks for posting this!

      The clamp down on data releases; the sealing of records and stories (eye witnesses and otherwise) that don’t add up – ALL point to something very untoward or a completely bungled operation/investigation being covered up. I would imagine the powers that be are planning a very controlled release of information (real or fabricated).

      It would seem that if Lanza, a mentally deranged single shooter, simply shot up a school…well, the story is what it is…nothing terribly complex to investigate and report. However, the handling of this case leads a reasonable person who is not “asleep” to assume that something else happened – and something very sinister.

  11. I’ve never seen basic questions like “are there witnesses to the shooting?”, and “how did he manage?” answered.

  12. Well said. Independent investigations cost money. Writing endlessly on a truth blog costs nothing. A $100 check from you, me, and 48 others will give Dr. Tracy $5,000 to hire a private detective for a couple of days to interview witnesses and report back. What say you, Dr Tracy?

    • With Newtown being just a short distance away from major metro areas such as NYC I don’t know why a handful of capable journalists or investigators haven’t already taken this initiative. Apparently they’ve all been convinced of the “long gunman” narrative.

    • Good point James, why is it a couple from Canada needed to make the trek to Connecticut to seek out answers?

      If some incident like this occured in my neck of the woods (Western Canada), I can assure you I would spend more time with my boots on the ground then with my fingers on the keyboard. Let’s hope that this is truely the case and individuals are out investigating and have just not released any findings yet.

    • If you and friends are so enamored of this idea, why don’t you collect the money yourself, hire your own investigator and publish the results, such as you discover.

      Demanding someone else do it seems ridiculous.


  13. In this video, this dude attempted to walk into SH only to find the
    road signs were renamed, using homemade versions and then
    told by cops to to get out. Sounds like Plum Island.
    James Tracy and James Fetzer – thank you for challenging
    the “official” story and not allowing brainwashing to prevail.

  14. The kill ratio is obviosly high because Lanza had a bushmaster and the victims were mostly little children killed close up.

    I do not see a conspiracy in this case or other shootings similar to this. It makes the point further that Americans should not have guns. You are all fruit loops. Not to mention posting this on the net is disrespectful to the childrens families.

    • Why do you say he had a bushmaster?because the media said that? They also said only 4 handguns were recovered inside. Also video shows police retrieving the rifle out of the trunk of the car, never brought inside.what is disrespectful to the CHILDREN THAT DIED is not turning over every stone until the truth is found and a clear consise picture of what actually transpired is found. There are too many stories that dont mesh, too few facts that are known, and to say the least at least 5 differant news coverages that negate each other. So no mr tracy is not the disrespectful one, you are. For believing what the media fed you without even blinking. Do youre own research and see for yourself that the presented facts dont add up. Tracy keep up the good work and dont let the trolls bother you. Oh and if you dont like the site, stay off of it. It took some time on your part to find it anyway so stop looking for what you dont believe.

  15. I’m an academic who works in a neuromuscular research lab. You are not an academic, you are a hack. For me I am entitled to academic freedom for that is my pursuit. You however, are strongly rooted in conjecture, fear, and narcissm

    If I disagreed with you about the color of the sky it would not make it a controversy. Rather I would be an idiot. You are a moron and a disgrace to academia
