Obama DOE in $3.2 Million Sandy Hook Payout 318

From USDE Project SERV

On January 6, 2014 the U.S. Department of Education announced it is awarding an additional $1.9 million to Newtown Public School District to help with ongoing recovery efforts following the tragic shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012.

The grant is being made through the Department’s Project School Emergency Response to Violence (SERV) program, which awards Immediate Services and Extended Services grants to school districts, colleges and universities that have experienced a significant traumatic event and need resources to respond, recover, and re-establish safe environments for students. Newtown received its first Project SERV award—a $1.3 million grant—in May 2013. The $1.9 million grant will continue to support the school district as it strives to restore a safe and healthy environment for teaching and learning in its schools.

“We will do whatever we can to continue assisting and supporting the healing and recovery of Newtown,” U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said. “This additional grant will help students, teachers, families, school district and community move forward after such an unimaginable tragedy.”

Newtown’s first $1.3 million Project SERV grant financially supported both the actions taken by the district immediately following the shootings, as well as the district’s comprehensive school-based behavioral and academic recovery program. Those services aimed to meet the needs of students, school staff, parents and family members affected by the tragedy and included support groups for parents, siblings, students and teachers; creative expression and wellness activities; counseling; training for educators and school personnel; and additional support staff.

The $1.9 million grant will go toward additional grief support services for siblings and those who lost their peers; classroom-based psycho-education and skill-building strategies; skill-based interventions for affected students identified as needing assistance for posttraumatic stress reactions, traumatic grief, separation anxiety and other behavioral and functional problems; tutoring for students demonstrating academic decline since the incident; additional security; additional nursing services; and more.

The Department’s Office of Safe and Healthy Students administers the Project SERV grant program. It has awarded more than $34 million through 113 grants, including Newtown’s additional grant, since the program began in 2001.

  1. “…she wants to be sure residents understand that those and other pieces are part of a greater plan.”

    They have to pay experts to come up with expert ideas, then pay other experts to ‘influence’ Newtown with all those the expert ideas. Or something like that.

    So -doesn’t look like students or teachers, or probably anyone who was in Sandy Hook on 12/14/12 will be gettin’ any.

    • And that’s only the tip of the Malloy iceberg.

      Not to be outdone by anyone, Newtown with its official population of 28,000 and dwindling student enrollment, has more visions of grandeur. And we thought the Newtown saga had pretty much ended. Nope. They have plans now of building a world class performing arts center. You heard that right. There is plenty of land left at the Fairfield Hills campus next to the high security Garner Correctional Institution. Good spot for their new building. They already have the performers.

      The platinum-selling country music singer will play an “active role in promoting the foundation’s arts programming, supporting its fundraising efforts, and building awareness for the organization’s plans to build a world-class performing arts and education center in Newtown.”

      • I guess they are subscribing to the “If we build it, they will come,” theory. I wonder if in the performing arts center they will be offering crisis acting classes for those interested in performing in government sponsored drills :)

  2. CT is spreading FIVE HUNDRED MILLION around little Sandy Hook, to compensate for business losses. The local laundry mat will get almost a million bucks. Apparently, people lost their enthusiasm for washing their clothes because of all what Adam did. This is a pic of ‘downtown.’

    “Doherty is one of 29 business owners who applied for half of a $500 million state economic grant to help compensate for business losses suffered after the Dec. 14 mass shooting at the nearby Sandy Hook Elementary School. The other half of the grant is to be used for future grants, business marketing or loans to help business growth.”

    • Jeezus, i forgot about that, we really are looking at over a billion dollars. Somebody please afd up all this money and them compare it to other comp funds for massive natural disasters and such. It would be a giant game changer

      • That some serious cash being spread around the businesses…kinda like the BP settlements passed around the Gulf (such as in this area – I’m not in LA or MS…where so many people have collected cash on bogus “harm” complaints – there are real ones, of course, but so many that are bazaar).

        So, the dry cleaning biz was harmed because people don’t need to dry clean after a school shooting? Sorry about that off-hand remark – but tourists typically don’t dry clean, so how was this business harmed?

    • No wonder businesses went south. People coming to town with out-of-state license plates were chased away, even by the ever present Mrs. Llodra herself. Probably why downtown Sandy Hook is deserted. If the chasing continues, all the money in the world won’t help – unless something entirely else is going on.

      Newtown Savings Bank, headed by Lanza neighbor Mr. John Trentacosta, has big plans for a parcel of land they own on Church Hill Road. I’m sure they’ll get their fair share. When all is said and done the laundromats will have gold plated washers and dryers, Llodra will be riding in a gold plated chariot, the fire trucks will be manufactured by Rolls Royce and the world class performing arts center will have no riff raff audience from out of state.

      Public Hearing:

      • Hey, don’t forget there were lots of players involved in Sandy Hook production–they need that hush-money–and their friends too–and all the reporters and sources who would otherwise spill the proverbial “beans” on the great hoax production, still a success if it isn’t reported on the mass-corp. “news”-media. Ho ho ho ho

        • After all, Sandy Hook massacre was one of the all-time great productions since Orson Welles’ “War of the Worlds” in 1938–seriously–these master-pieces don’t come cheap, u know.

        • In Sofia Smallstorm’s interview with Henrik Palmgren on Red Ice Radio she mentions that she’s not sure how the town got the name Newtown, that perhaps they really had some plans for a new sort of town.

          The original European settlers were of British descent and naming their new town Newtowne makes sense. It was later changed to Newtown. Information about Newtown from different sources:

          “This area was known as Pohtatuck. In May 1708, the General Assembly voted that the land on the west side of Stratford or Potatuck River should become the town of Newtowne. In 1711 it was incorporated as the town of Newtown. Town Birth records begin 1820. Marriage records begin 1700s. Death records begin 1700s.”

          “The original name of Newtown was Quanneapague. The history of Newtown really begins in 1708, when 36 men petition the colony’s General Assembly for permission to settle a town in an area north of Stratford. Although at least seven individuals had been given permission to settle in this area before this date, the 36 “petition proprietors” were really the first settlers of Newtown.”

          “Coming primarily from the towns of Stratford and Milford, the men were in their late twenties to late thirties. All were farmers and, being second and third generation immigrants from Britain, were finding the coastal areas cramped. They, therefore, moved to the interior where land was more plentiful and larger farms could be built.”

        • The lawyer who is handling the family’s affairs is a big Sandy Hook guy…(he was working p.t. in an attorney’s office – and I’ll bet they are one in the same). I wonder if Mr. Hoagland ran across some records he was supposed to see. He was supposedly critical of some of the changes going on in the town prior to the event…

        • Beth. Yes, probably one and the same. I checked him out before and his website lists law offices in Bridgeport and Newtown. Mr. Hoagland, we are told, worked part time in the Bridgeport office of a lawyer. The lawyer’s wife is engaged in a plethora of Newtown charities and their historic home on Main Street in Newtown was saved from flames last October. Main Street in Newtown has some beautiful and very old homes, an image they have tried to preserve. Plans for a new towered, state of the art school does not fit in here, not even hidden in the woods.

        • Hi AnneB – Maybe Gaston’s job is to help the family to “rush” his “missing and never to return” status. Maybe that’s part of some deal made. Just bazaar.

      • Anne, what an imagination opening statement….
        “unless something entirely else is going on.”

        This is where my imagination takes me. A NWO town for beaurocrats and business men, complete with huge mansions on the periphery, a beautiful new school, new arts center, etc, etc. Complete with underground tunnels for protection from whatever. Drones, yeah, protection from drones.

        • Yes, a town for “bureaucrats and businessmen”–AND ANYONE ON TAKE FOR GOV. MONEY–a huge and massive Hollywood-like production, truly. EVERYONE HAD TO HAVE A CRIMINAL RECORD–or a long hist. of taking orders, instructions, and money fm the gov.

        • Exactly! When “they” build it, “they” will come. And it will be “theirs”!

          That’s no ordinary school they’re going to build. Raise the ground level (was it) 9 ft!!! What are they putting under there?

          And I would bet that’s no ordinary “gas pipeline” running around the school and Yogananda St. development!

          Just conjecture, mind you.

        • Sounds like they needed lots of money for this project of theirs, with a long term plan by the look of it..why would they need a school -when there deosn’t seem to be a huge amount of children wanting places in the area.. I mean have you heard of bulging classes in other schools in the area so this ‘ New ‘ school could take the overload..Something big is happening here.. I don’t know what.. but it sdoest fit.. The money has come through without hiccups, nobody high up seems to question it, a huge amount going into a small community. What business is going to say’ No Thankyou!..’ This scheme is flowing along nicely. So they think.!

        • I’m wondering now if, with the emphasis on tunnels, they are building bomb shelters.

          Someone else commented about being safe from drones when you are underground–and by golly, that would be the case!

          With Denver International Airport, contractors made a network of tunnels that were square in cross-section–built to drive trucks through. They also laid gas lines, and built three-storey buildings, all over the property, then were told these facilities were “put in the wrong place” and instructed to bury them.

        • Maybe it’ll be the new underground government headquarters in the event of a national emergency. Like the old Virginia hotel (The Greenbrier).

          This whole school construction project is just a tad more than outrageous in terms of expense.

        • Poppylavender – You hit the nail on the head… the school board just a short time prior had determined that nothing was needed in terms of school buildings, etc. (other than “maintain”) due to dwindling numbers.

        • Remember then folks: ALL IT TAKES IS MONEY–and what’s the US Federal Reserve Bank (Fed)?–but literally a COUNTERFEIT scam which prints-up and digitalizes so-called “money” (actually money substitute, “notes,” but which has legal-tender status which people are forced to accept as payment for goods and svcs).

        • Sorry to attach this to your fine statement… but after reading more of today’s posts, I’m convinced we should organize a MemoryHoleBlog convention in Newtown ;)

        • As a concept I agree. What I think we may be seeing is a sort of NWO Center. There will be the “provisional” governments who will be run by the “Center”. So the local psychopaths get to keep their scams.

          The “Centers” will be very exclusive (see Anne’s comments about Liordra above). “We don’t allow eaters in the Imperial city”. Each of these examples we’ve been watching represent aspects of society. Art, religion, politics, education, etc…….

          Once the Central HQ issues marching orders on these aspects the “Center” will make certain that the local political lackeys implement it. Those who don’t pass the “sniff test” will not be “allowed” to support themselves.

          Picture a continent (or several) inhabited by a number of these “Centers”. It’s a bit like the old Soviet Navy having a “political officer” on board. It is quite clear that the politicians and LE in Connecticut are not representing their citizens. They are taking their orders from elsewhere.

  3. Anyone heard of a political training organization call Common Purpose in the UK? Maybe Newtown is the new center for its American counterpart.

    • Rich, the more I think about the common purpose theme, the more I think you hit on the bigger picture.

      I think that all the crappy little details that they keep releasing are to keep us busy like little ants down in tunnels so that we don’t figure out the big truly important picture.

    • I was wondering if there might be religious institutions based on the Common Purpose, and found this church which just happens to be have the name Columbine in it and have the words common purpose on it’s link! It will be interesting to see if some sort of “church” shows up in Newtown.

  4. I hadn’t heard of Common Purpose, Rich. That’s interesting.

    I was wondering of some of the other crises were pre-shows for Common Purpose, too. I googled Aurora + common purpose, and you do find those exact words being used a LOT.

    • After a quick search, there does seem to be “Common Purpose” talk in the higher levels of our government. I’m not sure it is the same program as in the UK. Over there, they actually recruit people at all levels of government and spend a good deal to send them to a training program. The scary part is that it seems upon completion, the trainees primary loyalty is to the “Common Purpose” program and its goals. It is infiltration of government on a massive scale, and at all levels. The common purpose graduate is to return to his/her position and not just do their job, but do it in a way to influence public policy for the “common purpose” Scary stuff, for sure.

      • I’m sure that as the Common Purpose plan starts out here in the USA, it will of necessity be not so bold, but as it takes hold it will be easier to see who is involved in it. What it is accomplishing will most likely always be undercover. Common Purpose seems to be a euphemism for an evil plan. From the small amount that I’ve read about it, one of the most important parts of the plan is to take away free will through mind control. I think that fits right in with the topic above about Satan and his plan for mankind.

        Also, it seems that Common Purpose is a blending of corporations and government.

      • Yes David Cameron has been plugging away just recently abroad trying to sell the Common Purpose courses.. wanting all minds thinking alike.. I think its a plan worldwide, our police force – NHS- and the councils,with government workers sent on these courses, which through the ‘freedom of info ac’t my son decided to investigate.. turns out a lot of MP’s and council staff have been on them, they cost the taxpayer quite a bit of money, government is involved and they are supposed to be a Charity run organisation… Anyway do we want our police force to act like robots? ‘The UK Column’ an alternative news programme on the internet knows all about common Purpose and how they are supported and the way they want their followers to think.!. Our MP think there is nothing wrong with the Charity and only helps to improve leadership…. Oh Yes……. Newtown.. here it comes…

        • I’m sure it’s the two types of charity we’ve been seeing at Newtown. The government gives GE $15 gazillion, and then GE gives Newtown, oh gee, $15 gazillion. Money laundering. Also, the send your money to Newtown because of what they’ve endured type charity.

          The Common Purpose is very deceptive. It draws people in with the “for the common good” candy coating, and to secure the deal, rewards them with money or empowers them to earn lots of money.

          All one has to do to be involved is be willing to give up their discernment.

          I’m sure there will be a lot more “newtowns” along the way.

        • Perhaps they are the same organization behind the “Common Core” school program being plugged worldwide. Easier to teach the children than the old dogs.

        • They’ve done the same here. It is just more clandestine. These “treaty groups”, the EU, NAFTA, NATP, etc., are just a ruse. They have always taken orders from their masters. They are only now moving it into the light of day.

          When we were discussing Agenda 21 I kept saying that it was but a small part of a much larger whole. The training classes for that, like the ones for “Common Purpose” teach their students that many of these policies must be implemented surreptitiously. Most of the drones think they are doing something “positive” and that they know best what that is.

          These controllers have plans. We hear of Bilderberg, for example, but that is too visible to be a policy meeting. That is there to sort of “adjust” each players agenda for the coming year. They advance these things relentlessly, like a glacier.

          If they encounter too much resistance in one area they simply develop a “work around”. They isolate it and come back to finish it off later.

    • When I first started reading about Common Purpose it did remind me of communitarianism, which I think Anne and lophatt were talking about earlier, And this site:

      http://www.stopcp.com

      has the word communitarianism in the information about it’s link.

      • Thanks for the Stop CP link and for the other links for reading from everyone else. I had not ever heard of this “Common Purpose” jazz before and it appears to be something I really need to study! Much appreciated!

        • Be aware of anything with the word common or related words. For instance we are now told that we live within communities, not neighborhoods. If Common Purpose is not scary enough, imagine when Common Core is in all schools. Hence the push for all day kindergarten, more time for indoctrination. Poor little ones. In monarchies they have the lower rank of commoners, another words for slaves.

        • Agreed, Anne B. We homeschool and have for years. I was a trustee for a while years ago…pub schools are such a mess. This common core is being rejected in several states…but not enough of them (so far). I agree with the whole “community” crap. How I wish I could go off the grid sometimes :)

    • I don’t want to express more cynicism than I have to, but the Common Cause “mission” is about Money in Politics, Elections and Voting, Ethics in Government and Government Accountability. They have been at it since 1970. Good job. Bringing in a Connecticut bureaucrat will fix things.

      Get ready for production of better citizens:
      Miles Rapoport, President, Demos. “We know what it means to get better leaders. But how are we supposed to produce better citizens? That’s the question …”

        • Yes violeta… ha.. that’s us!.. and what is wrong with the citizens now, we think for ourselves, thats the problem, they want to change that – change our language, make us feel bad about saying the wrong word.. or jokes, which are funny, not hurtful to anyone.. but not ‘ politically correct’ .. If we can’t laugh at ourselves now and again its a poor world.. it’s the common man being treated with disrespect as if we didn’t know any better.. Old – Young – middle aged, no matter who you are you are an individual.. Demos and the ‘accountability’ wallys – Cameron being one of them, have a plan and its a shame some of the young people can’t see it happening. Wiping out original thought and not asking questions. Don’t accept the slick words, look beyond them.
