Terrorism: systematic intimidation as a method of governing or securing political or other ends

The Obama Administration is giving Newtown another $7.1 million in federal funds for those allegedly impacted by the December 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The grant comes from the U.S. Department of Justice Office for Victims of Crime, and will pay for long-term mental health counseling for families, law enforcement and first responders. Officials say some of the money will be set aside for school safety measures.

Why do we gather here, each day, at MHB?
The Memory Hole Blog is primarily a place to examine media reporting about what are clearly artificial events, spectacles, really, that are designed to traumatize not only the American people, but, the whole world. Whether we call these things “false flags” or whatever better term presents itself eventually, they tend to attract the most boisterous conversation at MHB. But that’s not all James Tracy is interested in. Chemtrails and “smart meters” are topics we talk about here as well. These are not acute traumas like the false flags, but chronic assaults on the natural world that have a gradually accumulating, low grade traumatic effect on us all.
James Tracy speaks with Andrew Kreig on the state of media and politics in the post-Bush era and during Obama’s second term. Mr. Kreig is a Washington DC-based attorney, nonprofit executive, and the author of Presidential Puppetry: Obama, Romney, and Their Masters (Eagle View, 2013). As editor of the non-partisan Justice Integrity Project, he is a passionate and accomplished fighter for the public interest, with credentials including 14 years as a metro newspaper reporter, plus degrees from Yale Law School, the University of Chicago Law School, and Cornell University.

On June 3, 2014, at the ostensible recommendation of the Southern Poverty Law Center  the U.S. Department of Justice announced it will revive the Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee (DTEC), founded after the 1995 Oklahoma City Murrah Federal Building bombing.
“We must concern ourselves wth the continued danger we face from individuals within our own borders who may be motivated by a variety of other causes from anti-government animus to racial prejudice,” Attorney General Eric Holder remarked.

If the inordinate secrecy, multiple inconsistencies, and baffling residual mysteries associated with the Establishment’s narrative regarding the Sandy Hook event are any indication, the inner nature of the event is likely to be very dark indeed.
We welcome Elana Freeland to Checkin’ It Out. Freeland is the author of Chemtrails, HAARP, and Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth (Feral House, 2014).
From the publisher: “Freeland’s startling book sifts through the confusion surrounding chemtrails-versus-contrails and how extreme weather is being “geo-engineered” to enrich disaster capitalists and intimidate nations. A deconstruction of Bernard J. Eastlund’s HAARP patent points to other covert agendas, such as a global Smart Grid infrastructure that enables access to every body and brain on Earth, a future that erases lines between human and machine, and Nanobiological hybrids that infest and harm human bodies.”

Note from James F. Tracy:
The following series–one of few forthright investigations by US corporate news media of the chemtrails/geoengineering phenomenon–originally appeared in 2005. It is republished here with permission of the Las Vegas Tribune. A Tribune representative stated on a June 5, 2014 telephone query by MHB that all of the paper’s articles may be reproduced if accompanied by attribution to the Tribune as principal source. When this party was informed that there is no record of the desired stories on the newspaper’s website, s/he responded that this was unusual, as seldom if ever are articles pulled from the site.

In 2011, researchers at the University of California tested the hypothesis that the balance of bacteria in our body plays a larger role in regulating our emotions and behaviors than was previously thought. What goes on in our gut, as it turns out, is extremely important. The American Psychiatric Association says “gut bacteria manufacture about 95 percent of the body’s supply of serotonin, which influences both mood and GI activity”. Looks like our gut feelings are regulating our emotions. In this study, mice that were timid and shy were given a specific cocktail of certain antibiotics and the outcome was that they became energetic and adventurous, taking risks they wouldn’t typically take.
