Great News! No Children Died at Sandy Hook!

Filmmaker and Author William Brandon Shanley Launches Wave of Lawsuits for more than $1 Trillion Against Big Media Over Sandy Hook Massacre Coverage

Here is Mr. Shanley’s Statement:

“After exhaustive research, the good news is that overwhelming evidence reveals that no children or teachers died at Sandy Hook two years ago. For relief, I have filed lawsuits against the media in US District Court in New Haven for Fraud and Terrorism. Here is an example of our abundant evidence, Exhibit D: The Connecticut State Police dash cams record no evacuation of children from school at critical moments: — Smoking Gun evidence no children died at Sandy Hook.”

Attached is a photo staged by the Newtown Bee, a wider view of that action being staged on a different day that the emergency altogether, and a sampling of front pages that terrorized the world with the fake photo.


Mr. Shanley is the producer of The Made-for-TV Election starring Martin Sheen that analyzed media coverage in the tectonic Carter-Reagan election of 1980. He is also the author of books on quantum physics, including Alice and the Quantum Cat (2011).

Dr. James Fetzer, whose 35 articles on Sandy Hook for Veteran’s Today qualify him for the highest investigative journalism awards, and School Safety Consultant, Wolfgang Halbig, whose investigative expertise as a former Florida State Police officer, and loving attention as a former principal, makes this case’s particulars comprehensible to all, will be called as expert witnesses.

It is their scholarship and bravery that makes these Complaints possible for the shear breadth and scope and detail of evidence they have assembled. Hundreds of independent researchers have also made this day possible, and Mr. Shanley claims they will be tracked down and rewarded heartily for their bravery and mindfulness of America.

Mr. Shanley’s Complaint states, in part:

Defendants entered in a multi-year conspiracy, meeting in groups separately and together, to commit fraud and terrorism, i.e., to brainwash the public into thinking a lone gunman drill known as the “Sandy Hook Massacre” was real, when in fact it was a staged FEMA National Level Exercise Event that redirected government resources to terrorize the public. These crimes were undertaken with the intent of subverting the US Constitution and to affect national, state and local laws.  This fraud involved lying to the public, faking news, publishing one-sided news reports, censoring reality, suppressing facts, and deliberately skewing the news to shift public perceptions.

The true costs of this breach of integrity and trust to society are unfathomable. Instead of fulfilling their Constitutional Role as the People’s Surrogates and being honest brokers of information, the Plaintiff will show how the men and women who dominate the TV news industry in the United States broke laws, besmirched the First Amendment, their Constitutional role as government watchdogs, and forfeited the right to report the news, and thereby profit from news production and distribution. The sine qua non of journalism is the search for truth. Our Fourth Estate chose a different path. Punitive damages of one year’s annual revenue from each Defendant are being sought to establish a News Trust, that will free journalism and restore trust and integrity to our communications sources. A democracy cannot survive this tyranny over human consciousness.

The New York Times, the Associated Press, the Hartford Courant, and the Newtown Bee are being sued for 10 billion usd, punitive damages, in a separate Complaint.

Case Name: Shanley v. Smith et al
Case Number: 3:14-cv-01881-JAM
Filer: William Brandon Shanley

Mass TV and wire service news media are being sued for 1 trillion usd, punitive damages.

Shanley v. O’Prey et al
Case Number: 3:14-cv-01929-JAM
Filer: William Brandon Shanley

A third lawsuit will be filed against Connecticut-based TV and print media soon.

A complete list of Defendants in this suit can be found below.

[The press release proceeds to name three dozen defendants, including the Chairman and President of Obsidian Analysis, John Miller, Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counter-Terrorism for the NYPD and CBS News Consultant, the presidents, CEOs and News Directors of America’s major broadcast and cable news outlets, including NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, BBC, PBS, and Fox, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, producers of PBS’s Frontline, WGBH, the producers at Left / Right Docs, and the publisher and editor of the Hartford Courant.-JFT]

  1. Thank you! Doesn’t the complaint have to name an actual government entity and then name all these news fools as state actors? Here are some additional Defendants you could name.

    Meet Adam Lanza

    The totality speaks. The faces of these It Works people are found in all recent fabricated events by world governments including the beheadings.

    1. You can not sue them under their “agent” namesake, or as a corporate entity, you have to sue them as human beings and not legal fictions as there are no consequences for legal fictions. The legal system was corrupted in 1911 and is not what most people think, it is a false court system of administrative corporate law. He is doing it right i think having read the complaint, you name them as human beings “acting” as government entities but in a fraudulent and corrupt manner.

    1. That is always a problem isn’t it? No matter what happens, we can’t be sure if a positive result is meant to steer our reality in a specific direction. I wish them all the best.

  2. A trillion dollar lawsuit? Is this a stunt that will bring mockery to the Sandy Hoax movement?

    Speaking of stunts, came across this website dedicated to Noah Pozner –

    “Noah Pozner wanted to work at a taco factory when he grew up. Tacos were his favorite food, and no doubt he wanted to ensure that the world kept producing tacos. Help us create a virtual taco in his memory. Add your special ingredient below and tweet it. Voila! Tacos for Noah, all in memory of this very special Little Man! ”

    Wonder how many people see the satire and mockery of the Tacos for Noah site?

    1. I asked for a taco with truth in it. LOL

      Actually considering the federal money and appropriations approved on this event and all fabricated events it actually falls short. The US Congress – House and Senate should be named. They are in on it and all these Sandy Hook people including the fringe have fictitious names, histories and credentials; some testified before committees where the Representatives, if they have any brain cells, are more than aware this is a massive fraud. The least alleged crime they have committed is complicit silence that aided and abetted the defrauding of the American people.

      IMO ALL Congress members should all be sued in their individual capacity as should Holder and ANY head of any government agency, state and federal, that participated. They pulled the same false witness/credential crap with bola. This is straight up racketeering IMO. The award could pay back the money they have robbed from the Americn people and hopeefully at some point indictments will follow.

      1. If the people were to push for the reinstatement of the Original 13th amendment, Washington D.C. would cease to be, Philadelphia is the capital anyway, it is ALL a fraud. Government is a corporation and a fraud, see U.S. v. U.S.A. on google.

  3. The glaring connection between these two shootings (Sandy Hook and Aurora theater shooting), the Sikh Temple shooting and the Fort Hood shooting is that multiple gunmen were reported at the time by eyewitnesses, but they are now all officially claimed to have been carried out by ‘lone gunmen’.

    This logically tells us that the real perpetrators are being protected with cover stories of what really happened because if the truth were known, some section of the U.S. government would be implicated.


  4. Adam Lanza, with zero history of violence put on a mask and very efficiently killed 27 people in Sandy Hook? and then himself? but couldn’t handle getting his hair cut? Yeah sure.

    Also, this –> Just 3 days before tragic massacre of 27 people in Newtown, Connecticut, Israel Weapons Industries (IWI) proudly announced the opening of its U.S. subsidiary in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

    IWI will now further saturate the market for guns in the United States by offering U.S. “shooting enthusiasts” several varieties of the TAVOR semi-automatic rifle and the UZI sub-machine gun, according to its CEO Uri Amit.

    Speaking at a vigil in Newtown on Sunday, President Obama said: “We can’t tolerate this anymore. These tragedies must end. And to end them, we must change…Surely, we can do better than this.” (SO TAKE THAT BIBI),_IWI_US.htm

    I’m thinking Israel set up the shootings to help promote their new US gun business AND get back at Obama for not supporting Bibi’s war of terror on Palestine. Israel has a long history of killing Gaza children with no compassion whatsoever.

    Sofia Smallstorm Unraveling Sandy Hook
    1:30 hour long

    From Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, you can drive a narrow, two-lane road to Washington Avenue, cross the highway, and arrive about five minutes later at the headquarters of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the nation’s “other” gun lobby.

    You’ve likely never heard of the NSSF—they’ve kept a lower public profile than the National Rifle Association, but they’ve been quietly shaping American gun culture for more than half a century.

    The NSSF’s 8000 members are gun and ammunition manufacturers and dealers.

    And since the December 2012 massacre of 20 children and six staff at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in Newtown, Conn.,

    —> 12 states have passed laws allowing guns to be carried in schools, and 20 more are considering such measures.

    (Yeah, that’s what the gun manufacturers wanted, guns in school so as to expand their marketshare. Sandy Hook worked just as they wanted).

    1. No, it’s even worse than that. “Adam Lanza (*Ryan) allegedly refused touch metal objects, such as doorknobs”:

      Guess guns are a different kind of metal that he’s not afraid of, and going around the school involved touching no doorknobs?

      Oh, and here’s another good one: “…Lanza was so isolated he rarely spoke to anyone and communicated with his mother Nancy Lanza only via email:

      Yet, somehow “there’s no record of him online for the 3 years preceding.”.. What about all the e-mails he was sending his mom which was the “only way” he communicated with her?

  5. Can you please add a mailing address for donations for those of us that do not use PayPal? Thank you in advance.

  6. It is fantastic news but I’m wondering, first a former cop, now an actor coming to the rescue…helping us to stop actors and cops.

  7. what about adding half the town and the honr network and that dirt bag Poznor for all the millions money they fooled people out of and that pervert Gene.Anyway its a start now lets move on to the rest of the fear mongering lies they pushed on us,the bull of two cops being shot to start.

      1. thats true but at least someone is making people aware that it not over i just hope its not looked at as a money scame because how much it is it could destroy alot of hard work done by people

        1. Listen to Dr. Tracy’s latest radio show with William Shanley and Dr. James Fetzer.

          You will see that Mr. Shanley is a sincere person. He is not about money AT ALL. If by some miracle, his case reaches trial and he receives some semblance of justice and some monetary award as a result of a successful case, I feel certain that he will do the right thing with that monetary award. This man is not out for personal monetary gain. He is out to slap the legal establishment with Sandy Hoax TRUTH.

          Even if his case is quickly dismissed and never reaches trial, Mr. Shanley has taken the courageous initiative to do the imperative needed action of bringing Sandy Hoax Truth in the face of the court and the “legal system” such as it is.

          Mr. Shanley has just suffered the mysterious death of his roommate which may have been meant to be a hit on him for bringing this legal case. Two or three other people have mysteriously died who have been closely connected to the Sandy Hoax. So we should not say “nobody died” connected with Sandy Hoax. It may be certainly true that no little children died and no school teachers or staff died, but it is looking like the cover-up strategies are getting more desperate and more murderous.

          Just as there was a long list of people who met their mysterious deaths after the JFK assassination and after 9-11, the Sandy Hoax Big Lie is getting increasingly vicious in its aftermath cover-up strategies. The entire Connecticut state government and its “elected representatives”, corporate, political, medical, Yale University, psychiatric, and all the “ordinary everyday people of Connecticut” are in the tight grip of fear about the Sandy Hoax Big Lie. Mr. Shanley refers to this weird frightened / frightening atmosphere throughout Connecticut as “the Twilight Zone.” It is as though the entire state of Connecticut and all its people, as incredible as this sounds, are under a terrifying GAG ORDER. The people are rightly very very afraid. They know one slip of the tongue about the Sandy Hoax Truth could cause them to lose their jobs or suffer other reprisals on their personal lives and livelihoods.

          We have to just keep getting the truth out there in any and every way we can. We would be remiss if we did not applaud Mr. Shanley’s personal courageous law suit action. He has done this on his own and though he may quietly ask for small donations, he plans to go forward as best he can on his own. It really is almost irrelevant or superfluous at this point in time to be squabbling over what Mr. Shanley will do with all the “millions of dollars” he is going to receive.

          This legal action may not be the most legally brilliant type of lawsuit but it a law suit of some kind was needed NOW, not later, and whatever is attempted legally, regardless of the case outcome, will accomplish, and really already has accomplished something extremeley important, It has brought our Sandy Hoax TRUTH in the face of the legal establishment and really in the consciousness of all Americans. This attempted confrontation is right and good in every way.

          The more people know the truth about our murderous, terrorist, and corrupt government and establishment entities, the more people will not be mind controlled compliant zombies. With Sandy Hoax Truth, we create a huge DISCONNECT between the people and perpetrators, all of them. That DISCONNECT in the minds of more and more people will make it that much harder for these evildoers to enslave and kill us.

        2. it was a good interview i even trust Tracys judge of character but i was watching a video by professor doom1 on youtube with wolfgang and for some reason wolfgang wants nothing to do with him.I think personally he is shooting to high bro his attempt o pretty much take out the MSM is a mighty battle that i don’t see him doing ,i wish he would but he dont have the the money for that kind of battle.Tracy was saying he could hardly afford the travel cost.
          But thnks for mentioning the interview its nice to talk to someone else that pays attention.

  8. are you kidding me?? wolfgang halbig being called in as a special witness? jim fetzer? you people are FOOLS those individuals are outright FRAUDS. they’ve been pushing disinfo about Sandy Hook this whole time. Fetzer wrote an article for Iran’s PressTV that claims an Israeli Mossad death squad killed all the kids at Sandy Hook. Seriously, how stupid are you all? can’t you see a scam when it’s right in front of your faces???? god damn, cant say I didn’t warn you.

    1. Brendan – We know you have done excellent research, and have added important work to the body of evidence. However, this lawsuit is what we have all been waiting for, and for those of us who witnessed the events of November 22, 1963 unfold on television, we have been waiting our entire lives.

      Your tirades will be used by desperate and powerful people to undermine and confuse the evidence of fraud and those who challenge the perpetrators.

      . People have been terrorized, even to death. I often think of the poor young man suffering from Autism/Asperger’s – who was beaten to death by a couple of meth heads for his medications. His mother said he was doing well – but became hopeless and depressed when he found out he shared the same mental impairment as Adam Lanza – and was an easy target.

      One of the “fathers” in this hoax decided to capitalize on the event by bringing in the Sandy Hook children’s choir to sing back up for his saxophone playing on an album. He reported that the session was difficult because the children were sobbing. This obscenity of a lie has to stop – and this is a unprecedented step forward that I never thought I would see in my lifetime.

      Take a break – and let this go forward without your vitriol.

    2. You might want to add that Fetzer has since changed his mind and admitted he thinks he was wrong about the Mossad and thinking that any kids were killed at all. What a flip-flopper!

      1. tyrannynews: What you refer to as “flip-flopping” is viewed by many of us folks on The Memory Hole Blog, as ” correction of error” as new factual evidence becomes available. It is called the “Scientific Method”. Happy New Year.

    3. The December 2012 article written for PressTV alleging possible Mossad involvement was written by Gordon Duff, not Jim Fetzer. As suggested elsewhere in this thread, Duff, Fetzer and others admitted it was speculative, yet especially after the 2008 Mumbai and 2011 Norway attacks, not entirely outside the realm of possibility.

      1. Dang it! I thought my sense of humor directed at Brendan was obvious enough. It was more of an inside joke in the style of an Internet provocateur. I was actually pointing out that, yes Professor Fetzer supported the content of Duff’s article but changed his mind later. I never thought anything of it since I like it when people are willing to change their minds. Big fan of Professor Fetzer and will be a guest on his show in 2015. Great point about the Norway attacks. That’s one I tend to forget.

        1. The Norway shooting did happen, but not as the media reported it. I had family there on the island, a young boy of 17 then.

          What seems to be the most likely scenario is that the ones in on it, the young actors ready for action, were gathered at one location on the small island. All the others were a safe distance away and could only report on the sounds they heard.

          Also interesting is that former Norwegian prime minister Gro Harlem Brundtland was on the island, had finished a speech and just left by ferry when the shooting started. This assured that all, or most all, were assembled in one place.

          This former PM is in the highest league with those promoting a new (old) world order, Agenda 21 and the climate hoax. The sitting PM in 2011 was rewarded with heading NATO a couple of months ago.

        2. The new NATO head you mention (Norway’s prime minister at the time of the attack) is Jens Stoltenberg – a long-time Bilderberg member.

        3. JP – Jens Stoltenberg’s father, Thorvald, is a Bilderberger too. So is the current female PM, Erna Solberg, and the Crown Prince as well.

          Keep it in the family:

          ~His father, Thorvald Stoltenberg (born 1931), was a prominent Labour party politician who served as ambassador, as defence minister and as foreign minister. His mother, Karin Stoltenberg (née Heiberg; 1931–2012), was a geneticist who served as state secretary in multiple governments during the 1980s.[8] Marianne Heiberg, married to former Foreign Minister Johan Jørgen Holst, was his maternal aunt.~

          Let’s not forget Jens’ sister Camilla:

          ~Camilla Stoltenberg (born February 5, 1958) is a Norwegian physician and researcher. Since 13 August 2012, she has been Director-General of the Norwegian Institute of Public Health. The predecessor to today’s institute, Statens institutt for folkehelse (SIFF), was founded in 1929 following a donation of 1 million Norwegian kroner from the Rockefeller Foundation.~

          The Institute of Public Health still receives large sums annually from the Rockefeller Foundation. The Stoltenberg family is in charge of these funds and the budget is kept secret.

          The Stoltenberg family also profits handsomely from its vaccine association with Bill Gates. While Stoltenberg served as PM he gave huge sums of Norwegian taxpayers’ money to Gates and GAVI.

          It’s a small world.

      2. Thanks Mr. Tracy, I believe any case filed, that can go forward and begin the process of disclosure and sworn depositions is key to this getting blown wide open.

    4. Brendan, I saw your video where you claim the dashcam footage from the other copcar disproves the non-evacuation footage from the dashcam in “we need to talk,” but you didn’t include the footage. Is this true? could you post the footage?
      if the timestamps are off and it is as easily provable as you claim then this seems like a big setup to me.

    5. @ Xray, his calling of Wolfgang Halbig is a huge red flag for me. That guy is worse than pro wrestling- Of course, not everybody is a shill if they have a differing viewpoint than your own aka Fetzer- I remember you went on a bizarre tirade against me in one of your videos where you attempted to debunk the Haddad research, it was truely a sad effort, so sad in fact it made me wonder about you as a “researcher” when you didn’t even debunk any of the points I brought up.

      Anyway, agree with the Halbig thing, this lawsuit seems like it could be a “hopeful distraction”- Hoping other people are “taking the reigns and something will be done” and placating the research community.. I hope I’m wrong..

      Oh, and 1 Trillion sounds about right to me.. Maybe should be more.

      Looking forward to my “Cut”.. hahaha.

      I might have to sue the crisis actors individually for permanent psychological damage as well.

    6. People are allowed to be wrong and/or change their minds on occasion. It doesn’t make them frauds. Fetzer and Halbig have been spearheading the fight for the truth.

      1. Actually.. Fetzer has done some good stuff, but Halbig in no way “Spearheaded a fight for truth”.. That is false. He showed up about a year after all the original research had gone down, and started asking for $100,000 – Something Brendan Hunt covered will in a video I shared here a while back.

        Funny thing is- Shortly before asking for $100,000 for lawyers fees or whatever reasoning he was giving that he needed that money in order to somehow solve Sandy Hook.. He was asking for $100,000 to “stop bullying” not that long before..

        He needed $100,000 to help “put an end to bullying”, then Sandy Hook comes around and he needs $100,000 to solve Sandy Hook, or whatever he promised.

        There are two rules to successfully begging for things 1. Give an amount you “need” and 2. Tell people what you need the money for.

        Halbig definitely “Needs” $100,000 what he “needs” it for is another question altogether, and pretty much any cause will do it appears.

        What has Halbig done that is so groundbreaking, might I ask?

        1. Well, he has gone on multiple alternative news shows putting his credibility and career on the line. Not to mention the school board meeting where he and fetzer spoke out, pleading with the board to do the right thing. Yes, I see that as spearheading.

    7. Fetzer wrote an article saying there were indications that maybe Mossad were involved in the drill, but Press TV gave it a more inflammatory title. Why don’t you calm down?

    8. Is anyone expecting Hunt to come back?? How often can Hunt be wrong and just keep ignoring the facts? He has been calling Fetzer a fraud but when someone proves him wrong, he just runs back to his mom’s basement and goes into hiding. Then he comes back with some ridiculous vid saying he’s back and that Youtube has banned him. Come on Hunt. One of these days he’ll stop being such a baby about stuff and be a man.

      The readers at MHB blog seem educated to me. Why don’t you allow people to form their own opinions rather than slinging false accusations that destroy people’s character, and insult the readers of this blog?

      1. Well Mr. Fred, we commenters here on the MHB are well aware of the shrills that appear, often in pairs, or triplets and more to create conversations amongst themselves that wreak of hate and divide.

        To feed into these futile battles, only provides more fuel to their fire, and quite possibly their paycheck! It is more fun to allow them to eat each other up. We always have the option of notifying the administrator of the latest troll, but suspect he is more aware of them than we are.

        While we are very aware of how the government has taken over the media to control our thinking, it is somewhat astounding on how lame they are in commandeering those outlets that actually require some amount of intelligence to be coherent!

    9. Brendan,

      If you think everyone is a fool, then go to work for the “otherside” and help Obama, Holder, Malloy, Vance, Cooper and all the players defend themselves. Say “Hi” to Lenny for us.

      Unbelievable you think you can call anyone a fool…. Bedwetter

      1. “Brandon, your unshakable sanity and persistence is exemplary.”

        I think Brenden, FVpatterson, CW Wade and Mick West should all a have “Boy” pajama party to celebrate their Govt. issued checks.


        We know a hand appointed Federal Judge is going to throw this out claiming he has “No Standing” just like the BC.

        We don’t need your wisdom…Yea, I’m irritated

    10. Brendan, when the hell are you finally going to grow up and learn to work with others in a team effort? You criticize the very people who have labored the hardest, have the sharpest intellects, and have made the biggest breakthroughs in exposing this sham. You even labeled Independent Media Solidarity’s “Let’s Talk About Sandy Hook” as “disinformation,” in spite of the devastating, meticulous research that went into that documentary. Meanwhile, what have you done by comparison? Produce half-hour video “selfies” of your feet crunching in the leaves around a fenced-in Sandy Hook Elementary before it was taken down? Yeah, I’m sure you’re getting all kinds of death threats for such groundbreaking revelations! And why have you frozen Jim Fetzer into a time period that was less than 48 hours after Sandy Hook happened? Haven’t you ever changed your perception of a person or an event as additional information became more available? Why do you allow yourself the ability to change perceptions over time and not others? Your biggest problem, Brendan, is that you’re an actor, just like the Sandy Hook families. You have a HUGE ego and you can’t stand to be upstaged. Either get over it or quit this movement because you are no longer contributing anything positive to it.

      1. Hunt’s last good contribution to SH was his 1.5 hour Gene Rosen vid. After that its been a slippery slope in a downward direction. Maybe he’s a “Targeted Individual” and their techniques are driving him to the edge…

        Should we look for Mr Hunt featured in the next government sponsored hoax false flag event??

  9. In my excitement I forgot to say thank you, thank you, thank you to William Brandon Shanley, Professor Tracy, Professor Fetzer and to all the rest of you. You know who you are. Happy New Year!!

  10. I’m afraid that most lawsuits involve an actual, measurable injury. The likelihood of a case being thrown out without any litigation because the plaintiffs cannot state that they have an actual tort done against them personally which can be relieved by the court’s decision. Is this someone seeking injunctive relief? It would be prospective then, against future actions. But since the deeds are federal-based, the court would have to be a federal court, since a state cannot bind the feds in most cases.

    In this case of fraud, there are actual injured parties, and these include people who donated money to the families of the alleged victims. This is a garden variety situation – for instance where some co-worker claims he has cancer and sets up a website where friends can contribute to his medical expenses, only he is well, a liar, and he pockets the money. Even if someone else set up the website (as here, where the so-called parents are crisis actors) you can treat all the fraudsters as your defendants.

    I just think this is a less-than-effective publicity stunt, which will have no legal teeth whatsoever. But good luck. Unfortunately, like Sandy Hook itself, the purpose is to cause controversy and stir the pot.

    Those who have read Sandy Hook and BMB as ways of justifying government policies of control of the citizenry, suspending the rights of citizens under the Constitution at their whim (after all, there’s an endless war on, with an authorization of force dating from 2001 and a real crossing of the Rubicon of imperial power), are correct. It therefore follows that ordinary legal channels with not provide relief.

    1. I agree, a publicity stunt meant to backfire is how it feels to me. It kinda smells like the walter the billionare 911 thing to me.
      I hate to be so cynical but this seems like an April fool’s joke.

      1. People are so desperate for hope after these blatant abuses – we have evidence of individuals in the community who immediately wanted to help once they heard, and they were turned away. The ambulance services which wanted to attend to victims at Sandy Hook and also a Catholic priest who sought to administer the last rites to BMB victims. It is this shredding of the social fabric and the attack on our natural instincts of care that I find literally damnable, to the perps and to the society which swallowed their lies.

        Those who never looked behind the curtain in these deeds will find reason to revile and polarize the “truthers”, and every television screen will cry out against them. Society will unite in its untruth, and this lawsuit will help them to do it. It isn’t a lawsuit – it’s a publicity stunt and the harpies of the press will gobble it up and spray it out.

        Those like people here will feel this is at least, at long last, something.

        But what about seeking not money damages but injunctive relief against further incursions on normal life by these pretend events? There are plenty of them in the public schools already which have been acknowledged as such (pretend shooters and lockdowns with older students imagining they will soon die). Small but real. Who has tried to stop them?

    2. From my research into the possibility of a lawsuit from a variety of angles, I too have little hope the outcome will be anything more than it being thrown out. However, I have seen enough of the activity leading up to this to conclude that it’s likely just a less than perfect strategy and not intended to harm the alternative SH movement. I could be naive, but I think it’s a sincere effort. I’ll stand behind it, as I don’t think the harm would be that great if it tanked.

    3. Certainly this has been injurious to the body politic, admittedly an ill-defined victim.

      Yet is there any shortage of parents, grandparents, and other loved ones who have been emotionally impacted out of fear for their children’s safety while attending school following the intense Sandy Hook massacre media coverage? This was, if we are to follow the suits’ logic, the overall objective of such a widely-reported and dramatized event. Courts do not necessarily distinguish between psychic-emotional or physical injury. Thus a class action suit might have added merit.

      At the very least, as suggested elsewhere here by commenters, it would be helpful if information and testimony might be gathered from relevant parties in discovery that an intent to deceive existed.

      1. I take your point that families have been made excessively fearful for their children, particularly, it seems, in the public schools where all of this has happened. It seems to have spared private schools.
        When my children were little and still attending elementary school, there was a principal who was buffeted by every current in the media. One was the story of stranger abductions and of people who might enter the school to snatch children or otherwise molest them. This was a rare occurrence generally and one which had probably never happened in my district.

        But there is a sort of double bind, I think the expression is. They wanted children to get plenty of fresh air and exercise, be independent, and walk to school. But the principal’s having created a very locked up school where each parent, even known volunteers, was looked on as a possible predator, led to parents insisting on driving their children to school. This led to traffic problems generated by the situation (although all the well-organized activities after school probably caused the traffic after school). I won’t go in to the pick up and drop off problems, where once again parents were treated badly. The principal experienced one fender-bender in the lot, and she banned all parents from it forever, thus generating a jam on the street – if your child wasn’t in the car in one minute, you had to go out and circle the block.

        I suppose we were supposed to forget who paid the taxes for the school in the first place. Maybe that was part of the message. That, and paranoia about each other.

      2. James, I think we share the disgust that these activities engender. They are done intentionally to evoke responses, whether emotionally predisposing people to wanted legislation, or simple “modeling” as Sophia talks frequently of.

        I keep reminding people that nothing gets on the air without careful vetting. If its there, it’s there for a reason. It is not unintentional.

        We, of course, want it stopped. It may be that the surest way to that end is to expose it to all and sundry. Some will not like feeling that they’ve been made “chumps”. Others may take heart from seeing someone doing something to expose this.

        I have personally witnessed the effect this has had on some. There is no question but that it was a deliberately executed psyop. It isn’t nice to play on people’s emotions and otherwise lie to advance an agenda. When some of those entities are ostensibly “representing us” and have official obligations it is beyond annoying, it is what most would term “criminal”.

        They are using tax dollars to manipulate and enslave us. I hope that this effort will attract a great deal of attention. I suspect there will be a great effort to avoid that. It’s a cinch it isn’t going to get much positive play in the media.

        1. Unfortunately, it goes even deeper than this, for those who can see through these frauds, it can take over our sense of normalcy, at least that is what it was doing to me, and you start to get paranoid and fearful. No matter which way you turn, the goal is always the same, to engage us in fear and to become fearful. I, for one, am not going that route. While, there is evil in this world, I will not subjugate myself to be consumed by it, and try as much as humanly possible to live a life filled with love and compassion for my fellow man and to shed light on this darkness whenever and wherever I can.

    4. I don’t think it’s a stunt for publicity but in coverups of this kind that’s all one ever gets: publicity, not formal success, unless one is involved with a side issue, where formally the case can be tried without overtly seeming to find the whole lie to be a lie, while there is actually content which proves there was one. You can read about the Martin Luther King, Jr. family civil case to show more people & by IMPLICATION the government through Hoover were involved in the death, and which won; or read about the E. Howard Hunt litigation which Mark Lane got tried as if it were about CIA involvement in JFK’s death, but where the case wasn’t officially about that. For the Hunt case, see the wonderful book: “Plausible Denial”. Merry Christmas.

      1. Thank you, Clare, for reminding us that although there is no formal success in most of these cases, at least some get the point across obliquely, through a side issue (where obviously somehow there is standing to sue). I imagine there might be some clever angle on Sandy Hook too, as an alternative to this attempt to get it back in the public eye. Who says that only one approach is the right one? But we do not have to put our energy behind each and every one if they seem unpromising avenues. We don’t have to be negative or paranoid about them. But having pointed out their problems, one can fall silent and move on.
        I am sure we are here for different reasons, with different experiences. None of us has all the answers.

        Your reminder about these attempts to right the misunderstandings of the past, and to find ultimate justice, tells me that the conflict some of us first saw in the 60’s, we who were alive then, who saw so many assassinations, massacres and death squad killings, has taken different forms but similarly resulted in massive cover-ups. The techniques of disinformation perfected in World War II came home to be practiced on the American people. Some of these were finally cracked and shown for what they were. Assassinations by their very nature will always be carefully covered up, with only one official story allowed – the original one. “Treason doth never prosper – what is the reason? – why if it prosper, none dare call it treason.” I hope that the effect of all these things eventually toughens the hide so that we can admit what our government does with some degree of understanding, and make it harder for them to pull off as many as they would like to do.

    1. I also like Shine’s video … it say’s it all.. I think this lawsuit will give publicity to Sandy Hook, but the outcome may not be good..I read Brendan Hunts post and it got me thinking.. I hope it’s a sincere effort, why has some one not tried this before, who is this person – is he after donations, I think they will throw it out.. too many people involved in this to let it get out..but it is interesting.

      1. I loved shine’s video too. For over 100 years, we the people of the USA have been lied to on grand scale. We have fought in one unjust manipulated war after another and killed hundreds of thousands of our own and the innocents abroad. Our government is darkside and so are the big corporations, including Google/YouTube Eric Schmidt disgusting one. Surely everyone knows we cannot any of these people to do the right thing. It is not in them. They are evil to the core.

        Truth, as much as we can find of it, and truth, as much as we can share of it is THE strongest weapon there is. No matter how much we may think we have the facts and the law on our side, it is Truth that will always win in the end no matter how much the world says we lose.

        Strike while the iron is hot. The video WNTTASH has made NOW the time for a law suit to be filed. Mr. Shanley has stepped up to the plate. All involved are using their real names and have put forth great personal effort to search out truth and justice. They have made the best decision about the kind of law suit that they could. The important thing is that the action was taken and taken now while the iron is hot.

        If the judge wants to judge unrighteously and dishonestly and unjustly, then we have still accomplished something important.

        It can only be a good thing for more people to see the truth, and to see the names and faces of the purveyors of evil lies and terrorism. These people who participate in any way in these Big Lies have no shame. They have no good name to save. They have already sold their souls. Their purpose is that of their father — to lie, kill, steal and destroy.

        William Shanley has been on Dr. Fetzer’s Real Deal Radio show two times. He spoke about his law suit on his most recent visit. Listen here…

        Second hour of the two-hour show.

        This man is sincere. He lives in Connecticut. He is doing something important for all Americans and really for all the world. We need to give him all the support we possibly can.

        Search the website to find the date and archived recording of Mr. Shanley’s earlier show with Dr. Fetzer a few months ago.

  11. This would have a great chance of making it to and through the courts IF we had common law in our courts instead of the fiction of maritime/administrative law that is NOT for flesh-and-blood human beings. However, there is a grassroots group that is seeking to do just that–remove the corrupted system that destroys our lives, property and justice. Visit to learn what SHOULD have been taught to us all from our infancy….how we got to where we are and how they did it AND what to do about taking back our beloved Republic.

  12. 1) What about the issue of standing? A plaintiff must have standing that they were wronged/harmed/injured in some way in order for the case to proceed.
    2) Who receives the trillion if the case is won?
    3) Someone should warn Shanley that all of the defendants are controlled in one way or another by US Intelligence. The only way I can imagine stopping them is to remove their funding.
    4) Good luck.

  13. The Judge assigned to the case, ostensibly, is Jeff Alker Meyer. Any perspective on his history? Background may prove insightful.

  14. My humble two cent’s worth says God bless the men that are willing to stand up for the truth. Mr. Shanley, Prof. Tracy, Mr. Halbig, and Mr. Fetzer ~ you have my most sincere gratitude for doing this. With so many naysayers commenting here, trying to discourage, distract, and disunify anyone or any group that is willing to do what the rest of us should have done a long time ago, you all deserve a patriot’s medal of honor. It’s very easy to sit back and complain about the status quo of our nation, and to tell those who are willing to take action 50 reasons why their plans won’t work. A very wise man, Jesus Christ my Lord, himself said that a house divided against itself cannot stand. Could it be that is why our once great nation is great no more, because those who want to see the truth prevail are too busy tearing each other down to defeat the enemy? Shame on you. The old “divide and conquer” strategy has certainly worked well for those who want to see America completely destroyed.

    To these brave men, once again, thank you! No matter what the outcome of this lawsuit is, you are doing vastly more than the rest are willing to do.

    1. I couldn’t agree more Maryaha. It takes guts to do what these guys are doing, and win or loose, getting this thing into court is a huge step forward. Big picture time. We all need to support this effort and assist with funds, research and deposition planning.

      As far as standing – the impact of this event has been so broad and horrifying, on so many levels, by those who believe it happened, as well as those who don’t, that every man woman and child in this country has standing.

      Don’t forget, our tax dollars paid for the production.

  15. Filing a suit can be done by anyone. What happens next will depend on several factors, the skill of the lawyers being one important element. I wish them all the best. I do not want to criticize this effort in any way.

    I have my own ideas about how one would go about this but, any landing is a good landing.

    I am deeply disturbed by those who seem to want to “take sides” on various researchers and activists. This is not a ball game and, while I suspect that is at the root of those who like to do this, it is not about “you”.

    The thoughtful commenters at this site are not providing their comments for self aggrandizement. Many have different styles and fundamental beliefs but they are trying to get to the truth of the matter and shed light on it.

    Maligning the character of those who devote so much of their lives to the search for truth is neither productive or appreciated. Those who think this is a “publicity stunt” should take solace in the fact that “publicity” is precisely what is needed.

    I hope that, should the initial effort fail, there will be continuing efforts. I suspect this is not going to be easy. I wish them the best. Please let us know where to send donations.

    1. You don’t have to malign someone’s character to say that they are incompetent as lawyers. If you are a surgeon, you must know which tools to pick up. I don’t think they are reaching for the right instruments. If I were to say that was deliberate, I would be maligning their character.

      1. You are certainly free to have your opinion. “Maligning” one’s character in this case would mean that you believe that they have impure motives, not that they might not proceed competently.

        I do not believe that these people are deliberately misdirecting anything. I resent the implications associated with those who accuse people of changing their minds as somehow suspicious. Having an open mind and being willing to change an hypothesis in the face of new evidence is entirely appropriate and correct.

        I’ve said previously that I don’t make celebrities out of people and I don’t form my opinions based who someone allegedly is. What I mean by that is that there shouldn’t be a “Fetzer camp” and a “Brendan Hunt camp”. I admire people for what they bring and try to forgive their shortcomings as none of us are perfect.

        I have said before that I doubt very much of something like this is successful. That doesn’t mean that I don’t want it to be. I will take no satisfaction if it fails. I would be more enthusiastic if I actually believed that the system worked as advertised. I will gladly shout from the rooftops if I’m proven wrong. I hope I am wrong.

        Let’s see where this goes. I am not going to criticize these folks’ actions. I wish them well.

        1. Just to add another layer here: as we know, in Boston federal court (how’s that for the sacrosanct federal court system, obviously a part of the government like FEMA) there is a defendant named Dzokhar Tsarnaev who supposedly did the BMB with his brother, only we know it was a hoax too, just like Sandy Hook. The whole thing is reported faithfully on the nightly news along with sports scores, the weather and horrible hit and run accidents (which are all probably accurate reportage).

          There is nothing magic about taking this to court, not with the system we have.

    2. I think Brandon hunt is so passionate about halbig because he systematically proved beyond doubt that halbig is a complete fraud. character maligning of halbig should be undertaken due to his being called as an expert in court. this alone will get the lawsuit tossed.

    3. There are no lawyers on the plaintiff’s side. See above: “Mr. Shanley is proceeding on a pro se en paupers basis,” The other side will have plenty of mighty lawyers.

      1. Agree. And that is not a very strong position. Imagine if there were a notable criminal defense attorney or a big class action law firm taking the case – that would make headlines. Think of the JFK Clay Shaw criminal trial led by Earling Carothers “Jim” Garrison. This was a district attorney bringing a criminal case in a jurisdiction where he had friends and supporters already.

        But the marginalization of “truthers” continues and this trial, if it ever goes to court, needs a miracle to proceed and get the word out. That miracle is such a long shot I am not able to hope for it. But what would happen if somehow the landscape changed and “truthers” became darlings of the public. That would need a new media because the other one would have to eat its words, which it knows are contrived.

      2. There has been WordPress big glitch in this thread. I am receiving current notices of all the many postings in this one thread over the last several weeks. I am only supposed to receive the current, most recent comments in this thread. This makes me have to ignore all of these old useless comment notifications to this important article. Someone needs to determine what wrong button was pressed to cause this irritating glitch to happen and which renders this entire thread recap a time-wasting glitch that causes us to have to ignore entirely this important thread. Or maybe a mysterious “someone” deliberately pressed the wrong button for Dr. Tracy to effectively kill this important thread.

        “and the light shines on in the darkness and darkness could not overcome it.” John 1:5

  16. In watching the original segments of the entire fiasco, it was evident that the entire thing was staged. We saw no ambulances or other. The staged interview of the father who was smiling before coming before the camera then changing to a sorrowful sight. The little girl who was supposedly killed getting on Obama’s lap, and much more. The impact on the nation at the time was horrible. a Trillion dollars isn’t enough. The effect was to attempt more gun control. That didn’t work and it shouldn’t.

  17. We have all been harmed in one way or another. Myself and family members wept for days on end for all the sadness, many sending money. Then not long after the event, I wept at the realization of how corrupt our government had become, thanks to the conspiracy realists.

    That was probably always the plan and by now they are probably shocked that they still have to pay folks to participate in the ‘rioting’ and mayhem that was supposed to bring in martial law.

    Seems like as good of a plan as any proposed, being forever the optimist wish this brave team Godspeed. For sure it is a David vs. Goliath battle, may you at least shoot an eye out!

    It would be ironic, if the case is dismissed based on the laws that make it perfectly legal for the media to lie when it is for the purpose of the public good. As in, this geo-engineering program spraying toxins in the air is all to save the earth, you are too stupid to understand the effects of global warming, cooling, ummm climate change!

    We do not have a media anymore.

    1. Skirt, that has been something I’ve been harping on all along. I don’t know how many realize that media lying has already been to court and found to be “acceptable”. In other words, the courts maintain that they have no obligation to tell the truth.

      In addition, the government itself has announced, publicly, that they will use “media” to influence public opinion. Just because something is ethically or morally wrong, or repugnant, doesn’t mean it is illegal.

      In terms of public officials violating their oaths of office and others making money from fraudulent charity appeals, that may be a viable approach.

      Anything that gets more attention focused on this is a positive. I only know what I’ve read, above, and have no knowledge of their strategy. I hope it’s a good one. In some respects they have a lot of circumstantial evidence on their side.

      I think the “official report” will be key here. If they can get to the discovery phase it will be interesting. Official records and reports must be honest.

      I’m not sure about “the media”, being held to the same standard. I don’t for a minute think that they didn’t know they were “misrepresenting” what happened, I’m just not sure that’s a crime any longer. In short, it IS disgusting, it may not be illegal.

      I understand that they have counsel. I’m sure that he or she knows that they must be very careful with the filing. Getting this heard at all will be more than half the battle. Getting attention on it may go a long way toward that end.

      I share some of the concerns raised here. As you say, you are an optimist. That’s what we need at the moment. I’m too cynical for this. Having been absolutely right before and getting clobbered and ground up over “technicalities” in the past will do that to you.

      As many have howled for “action” on this in the past, we should all feel grateful for this effort. I wish them nothing but success. I’m merely saying that it will take careful stewardship, not righteous indignation, to win the day. If they succeed in getting it heard that will only be the start. Let’s see if we can get it that far.

      1. You said a mouthful which I think goes to the heart of the case being filed: “Just because something is morally or ethically wrong, or repugnant, doesn’t mean it’s illegal.” Of course a citizen cannot be a plaintiff in a criminal case. But the ad damnam in the proposed civil action here is so huge it is clearly designed to change public policy which is as pernicious as asbestos or tobacco – more so in fact. But just because we hate what has been done does not mean there is a legal avenue to end the practice, and more of these hoaxes will no doubt be played and dominate the airwaves, creating a false history and public consciousness which completely swamps reality. It is what dictators do. And you do not overthrow dictators by taking them to court. (I’m not referring specifically to Obama, just to the person of the moment who is carrying out the ceremonies associated with these messages – let’s call them “Caesar”, since the Rubicon was crossed on 9/11 and that is who rules now.

        1. Musings, I wouldn’t argue with any of that. Most, even though they are at least somewhat awake, think that we have a magical system that works if you’re “in the right”, somehow. That’s a nice fantasy. I wish it were true.

          I am encouraged somewhat by the publicity this may bring to the issue of creating false events and manipulating the populace. I personally do not believe that the courts, which exist to sustain the system are going to be providing any relief.

          Sometimes in life a person has to grow up and realize that many things are not right but are beyond our ability to do much about. If we choose to do something about one that has a possibility of correction, we will have to be creative and devise a plan that isn’t conventional.

          As you say, there is a “defendant” in a sham that is still ongoing to prove the point. He may be “in on it”, or not, we simply don’t know. They will do what they plan to do no matter what “evidence” is contrived.

          The main point I was attempting to make is that emotion does not equal logic. Even logic does not always “win” in court. What I have learned over my years of experience is that emotion can be a great spur to getting to get one started in a legal proceeding. After that, the trick is to calm down, be as orderly and composed as possible and proceed with presenting your evidence.

          You would have a better chance at presenting emotion-laden evidence to a jury than to a judge. Judges tend to see themselves as defenders of the system, not saviors of the masses. They like their positions and their perks and this would be a nightmare case for most.

          Saying all this does not mean that I don’t wish to see them held to account. I do. I listened to Dr. Fetzer’s interview posted above with the film maker. It’s great to hear such enthusiasm and righteous indignation, I share that as well. The problem is that it just isn’t as simple as being pissed and going to court.

          If (and its a big IF), you succeed in getting this to a hearing, you need clear, articulate and believable witnesses. I frankly have a difficult time understanding why, out of all the researchers involved in this and the many articles posted and facts discovered, there is so much reliance on Mr. Halbig. Apparently, being an ex-trooper is thought to qualify him as an expert witness. Perhaps, but they should consider others who have shown themselves to be both knowledgable and articulate.

          Lastly, I have said previously that you shouldn’t go to your oppressor for relief. It only empowers and encourages them. I wish them the best, I really do. I’m simply too jaded from my life’s experience and aware of how the world actually works to get excited. I very much hope they prove me wrong and restore my faith in justice.
