Sandy Hook Massacre: Three Years of Subterfuge and Fraud 414

Fraud. An intentional perversion of truth for the purpose of inducing another in reliance upon it to part with some valuable thing belonging to him or to surrender a legal right; Anything calculated to deceive, whether by a single act or combination, or by suppression of truth, or suggestion of what is false, whether it be by direct falsehood or innuendo, by speech or silence, word of mouth, or look or gesture.-Black’s Law Dictionary, 6th Edition

Three years ago the public learned of the most significant mass shooting in recent US history involving the deaths of 20 young school children and seven adults. As a father of three I immediately empathized with the parents, reminding myself there was no real way to fathom the sense of loss such an experience must involve.
Sandy_Hook_Lanza

After several days of reflection, however, my instincts as a media analyst took charge. In reviewing news coverage of the Sandy Hook School massacre I began to recognize very unusual features in the alleged forensics, the emergency response and the overall way the event was being reported.


Commonplace emergency protocols were abandoned. There was no surge of EMTs into the building, no proper triage protocol employed or Med-Evac helicopters called. Parents were not even allowed to view and hold the bodies of their deceased children, and law enforcement oddly admonished those who questioned the official narrative online with  criminal prosecution.

The following day Connecticut’s state coroner amazingly bumbled and guffawed through a fifteen minute press conference where it was anticipated he would provide an expert overview of the postmortem. His responses to reporters’ questions were so bizarre and incompetent I was awaiting an avalanche of lawsuits from victims families to be brought against the school district and State of Connecticut. On December 28 one was filed, then quickly withdrawn. The following October the Sandy Hook School—among the greatest crime scenes in US history—was demolished.

When I chose to publicly share my analyses and suggest that the event was being inaccurately reported and seized upon by politicians to implement long-sought agendas I was attacked and labelled a “conspiracy theorist.”

This media frenzy (here and here) developed into a campaign to embarrass my university employer into firing me. My continued research on this topic has developed into a scholarly project that the institution of tenure was intended to protect. But how could one ever dare propose such subject matter?

Beginning in the 1960s women and racial minorities who secured a toehold in the academy used their tenure to address controversial topics that drew fire from conservative administrators and trustees. Unfortunately this tradition of radical inquiry has evolved into a stultifying, almost Victorian ethos of political correctness that often precludes honest exchange, sees oppression where none exists, and makes tenure a charade. It also renders profane the idea of questioning the motives of America’s first black president and attorney general.

In the December 10, 2015 online edition of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel Leonid “Lenny” and Veronique Pozner mounted a vicious attack that sought to intimidate my employer into removing my tenure and depriving me of my livelihood because of the questions I’ve raised concerning the Sandy Hook event and confirmation of Mr. Pozner’s unusually tenacious and profuse copyright claims.

Normally an endeavor targeting an individual’s primary asset would take shape as a lawsuit where proper discovery and judicial procedures might be adhered to.

 The recent 425-page volume of research on the Sandy Hook event compiled by six professors (including myself) would constitute for the Pozners a tremendous burden of going forward. They have thus once again chosen the low road of playing upon the prejudices of decent, good-hearted yet often poorly-informed Americans.

Along these lines, in June 2014 I sent CNN’s Anderson Cooper, who similarly attacked me on national television for questioning the state-sanctioned Sandy Hook narrative, an open letter to join me in a trip to Newtown so that we could together reexamine the facts underlying the horrific tragedy he played a major part in covering. I emphasized that such a scoop could be tantamount to the next Watergate, and if he could satisfactorily put to rest my skepticism I would seriously consider resigning my academic post.

To this day my request has gone unanswered. Perhaps like me, Mr. Cooper knows that Newtown and Connecticut officials have failed to fulfill a multitude of public records requests which would readily confirm the nightmare Cooper and his media colleagues related as fact three years ago.

In a geographically vast country where imagery and emotion reign supreme, where fact is often replaced by unsubstantiated claims and hearsay, the eventual result will likely involve mass fraud leading to a severe loss of our freedoms, perhaps eventual tyranny, as de Tocqueville suggested following his tour of America almost two centuries ago.

Today more than ever citizens would be well served to recognize that much of what they are left to witness via mass media requires serious interrogation, possible only through a consistent regimen of intellectual self defense. This makes good reporters and worthwhile journalism. If that is an outmoded ideal and a skill that can no longer be practiced or taught to young adults I stand guilty as charged.

      Still, the post’s author Denis Slattery calls Tracy “crazed,” “twisted,” and accuses him of “harassing” Lenny Pozner. In other words, in Amerika today, to raise questions about the alleged death of an alleged boy allegedly named Noah Pozner is now harassment.

      • FAU has not acted thusly out of their concern for “justice”. They were likely pressured. Perhaps their funding sources on the various grants held by their faculty were “challenged”. Perhaps their financial department has a number of powerful people of various persuasions that don’t like Tracy because many of the “parents” were, perhaps, tribe members? Remember what happened to the British meteorologists who differed on the global warming question at the East Anglia weather station? Like, “if you don’t agree with our position, hey, maybe we take away your grant money and your job, eh”? If governments cannot do things honestly, they will obviously do them any way they can regardless of whether or not they break every law in the book. This is what we face, an anarchic world, a lawless world, where money and power will be used to crush dissidents. Tracy’s court case will purposely be dragged out ad nauseam for obvious reasons. Bleed him dry, yeah.
        I would guess that there are superb and well positioned lawyers who will clamor to do a pro bono for Dr Tracy. Array the legal guns, fire at will. This can work out for the defense of Dr Tracy and the United States.

        • A frequent commenter here, with whom I converse in my private email, asked me this a few hours ago:

          What do you think is going to come out of all this with FAU firing Tracy?!

          I didn’t think they’d actually do it, at least not till the summer.

          I responded:

          I have a very bad feeling about this. Universities HATE controversy. If I understand how these things work, even the union of professors can’t force the school to reverse such a decision. They can be “censored,” but not forced to re-hire him. And I think they are in fact going to fire him. And no other college is going to hire him.

          Perhaps he will think of something.

          The reply involved guessing who is behind this. Here’s what I said:

          It’s bigger than Connecticut, or Word Press. Someone posted two videos an hour or so ago at MHB exposing Posner’s family, at least that’s what the comment claimed. But both are greyed out. If you click on them, it is a copyright claim by Lenny that took them down. That’s fast work. I think Lenny’s real name is Langley.

          (Actually, it was a link to web page, but it must have been fresh when it was posted here, or the commenter would not have linked to it.)

          The point is that if it is Langley doing this, the pockets are endlessly deep to both reward Tracy’s employer for destroying him and to make the courts impossibly expensive for him to use to his triumph.

          The wacky fraud Michael Mann sued Mark Steyn over a 257 word blog quip at National Review Online’s The Corner, four years ago. It is still pending in court, the lawyer-meter running–because that’s what Mann did it for. Being a bestselling author, Mark can afford to feed the meter (although I’m sure he’d rather keep all those millions he’s stuffing down the maw of the monster). Few can fight back like that.

          Mann has very deep pockets, because the Climate Syndicate is paying his legal bills for him. Lenny/Langley, I suspect, has the Federal Reserve, which can create a trillion dollars out of thin air with a keystroke, behind him/it.

          As I never tire of declaiming, Western Civilization is no more. We are living in its replacement, but we are still dreaming that the world we were born in continues to exist. This Tracy firing thing might be evidence that dissent will no longer be tolerated. They will crush us. I’d like to think we can continue to walk in the dream a while longer, but I’m sober and prepared for what’s coming. We are not going to like it.

          • To me, the most pertinent question of the moment is, how did FAU hold out for so long? What caused the tipping point? Did they go ahead because some line was crossed? Tracy survived Sandy Hook – but not Berdoo? Could it be because after a hiatus, this was straight out war propaganda, not with a domestic purpose (such as gun control) but in being as so many say “a second 9/11” – that is the stock phrase. It is a justification for attacking another nation and murdering its leader or “executing”. Not to say Libya wasn’t targeted – but this is blatant and really tickling the bear’s tail too. In order to survive the opposition to such a suicidal war, there has to be a second attack comparable to 9/11, although this was done on the cheap. And what was 9/11? The much desired “Second Pearl Harbor”.

            So what Tracy represents here is someone who could block something so suicidally momentous, and we cannot have that. Instead, campuses, now completely in government hands, will be a no-go zone for anti-war activism and (soon) draft riots.

            As Patrick says, “Lenny” may be “Langley” (or parts East). It is always a good idea to know who your adversary is. Again, as Patrick says, we can’t simply type a few keystrokes and have instant resources in the bank.

            If we could, and I were King, we would be hiring an investigator to investigate the investigators. I had two such attempts made against me in my career. It is a horrible and helpless feeling. It matures you in a hurry.

            Someone once said that “life is like a grindstone. What doesn’t wear you down polishes you”. Nothing disabuses you more quickly of all those preconceptions you may have had about being on the ‘right’ side of a dispute being a defense.

            In my cases I won. Its hard to see that as winning. Life returned to normal with a permanent bad taste in my mouth. That’s about the best outcome that could happen here.

            So, it isn’t some abstraction to me that people conspire against others. Never expect your opponent to have scruples. Some people are just loathsome creatures.

            My guess is that they have a full dossier expertly prepared on this matter. It will be full of lies and misrepresentations with accompanying quotes (out of context of course), and all designed to support their predetermined conclusion.

    • I remember when a daughter’s friend of about the same age lost her mother to suicide (after many hospitalizations for mental illness). What did I see? Dilated pupils – she was on anti-anxiety medication during the initial period of mourning. Even though this was following through on many attempts, which she had witnessed over the years, she looked like a shell-shocked person. The real face of sudden death is not a normal face, with someone waving her ponytail around. A real bereaved person would keep running over in his or her head the last thing mother said. Christmas is coming – it would be about Christmas forever being a reminder of the loss, the gift that keeps giving for life. If this child’s mother died, it would have to have been five years ago at least.

      These fake people – how can people who see them not draw from their own personal experiences with grief – why does your experience count for nothing, and the word of authority count for everything. That is the central question of all these hoaxes. They ask people to abandon common sense. We are in a dark ages mentality at the top of the MSM.
      Iconoclasts are of course going to be told they should be burned at the stake. So far, there is still the pretense of living in a time of reason and science. But it is pseudo.

      • This is the last section of the Daily News article:

        “Tracy and other conspiracy theorists allege the tragedy was a hoax and the Obama administration staged the mass killing in order to enact strict gun control measures.

        ” “The Pozners, alas, are as phony as the drill itself, and profiting handsomely from the fake death of their son,” Tracy wrote in a Facebook post following the publication of the couple’s Op-Ed.”

        I had never been to the Facebook page for MHB, and thinking this assertion to be completely out of character for James Tracy (as I have repeatedly pointed out, he never talks like that), I clicked on the Facebook link top of the MHB page, and scanned through the postings. I found that they are all simply repostings of the articles that appear at MHB, which tells me that Tracy only uses the Facebook as a marketing arm for his REAL site.

        Which makes perfect sense; the idea that someone as media savvy as Dr. Tracy would use the most unsafe venue in the world (almost certainly an arm of the CIA) as a platform to vent his private thoughts and reveal snide, cutting, opinions, is ridiculous on its face.

        Anyway, I found no additional commentary by James that we don’t get here–and he rarely joins in the comment section conversation here, his real web page.

        Now, I suppose it’s possible that he has a personal Facebook page where he displays a completely different standard of public interaction than he does here, and that’s where the quote comes from, his Picture of Dorian Grey, but I highly doubt it. So, what this looks like to me is libel.

        A made up quote. A lie.

        Going back through a month of postings, I notice that very few of them have any comments at all, and never more than a few. And James has never replied to any of them (they are pretty innocuous, anyway, giving no reason to do so).

        This is the state of the world as the civilization that replaced the West takes shape. People who analyze the artificiality of our reality, and attract serious people to join the analysis, must be crushed. The Ministry of Truth is being constructed as we breathe. We still can push back, for now. How long?

        I don’t know if truth is a defense in this environment, but as I have said many times, anyone paying attention to what he writes and says in interview knows how judiciously James handles the controversies he brings to light. The only way to attribute to him an opinion about any given “conspiracy theory” is to just make it up. No one, it seems, in the MSM, wants that fact to be known. He must be made a caricature, even if he gives them no ammunition to use.

        Really, if you think about it, he’s just using the scientific method. But so are those who investigate the climate change “hockey stick” graph, and conclude that it is the greatest hoax on the history of science. All genuine scientists must be destroyed.

        The Wizard of Oz comes to mind. Who pulls back the curtain to reveal that the Wizard is a fraud? It’s not Dorothy. It’s the little dog. Tracy is Dorothy, who brings Toto–the scientific method–to the throne room. The new civilization we now reside within must silence that pesky little terrier, even though the curtain has already been pulled away: PAY NO ATTENTION TO THAT MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN!!!!!!!!!

        Will the spineless worms in charge of the institution he works for treat him honorably in the coming days? Will he be allowed to demand to be shown proof that he has told the world what he thinks actually happened on that morning three years ago? And if they can’t, will he tell them to shut up and leave him alone?

I think the ultimate goal is not prosecution or LOL an action in tort, but to get Tracy fired for conduct unbecoming. That’s the goal the fabricators have in mind because, frankly, there is little coherent critique of these events outside of memory hole blog.

          So I would put this in the category of Democrat “dirty trick”, because those who post are sure Tracy is a Trump supporter and secret Nazi/antisemite/you-name-it/gun-lover. The accusations tend to conflate a vast amount of negative stereotypes, a package deal that if you doubt one word of the authorities, you are, not to put too fine a point on it, a traitor.

            The man who coined the phrase “bully pulpit” was Theadore Roosevelt. It is what he called the presidency, once he attained it.

            A “pulpit” is where a preacher preaches from. In TR’s day, “bully” was what when we were growing up we called “cool” or “groovy.” Bill and Ted, in their Excellent Adventure, would call it “Awesome.”

            So you did not misuse the term. James COULD treat what he has built here as an awesome platform to preach from, but he has not done that.

            He is, in my opinion, in his admirable restraint, equivalent to an Oxford Don of two centuries ago. Above reproach. But if you watch the movie Goodby Mr. Chips, you see the sad history as that wonderful world began to break down as the 20th century got started. You cannot help but cry real tears when watching that movie. Tracy stands in that tradition, in the only sense that is important: adherence to principle.

          To me, if someone believes that they’ve been slandered they can bring suit. If they attempt to damage someone’s employment or reputation, they become subject to a lawsuit.

          In that venue “truth” is a defense. In this extra-legal arena there are no rules. That is why they have selected it. I say “they” because I can assure you that the “Lenny” is not acting alone.

          There are many issues afoot here. It is not and should not be assumed that complaints should result in disciplinary action. If this provost weren’t a hatchet man he would “honor” his office by telling them that they should seek relief in court if they believe they’ve been damaged.

          This is punishment without due process. This or any other university does not exist to suit the needs of the tribal minority. It is perfectly alright to be indignant. They should go ahead and wallow in it. I’m pretty sure that they aren’t.

          At the end of the day there is no justice. There can be remedies, but they are costly. I would love to see the discovery this could bring. Who talked to who? Think of the email. Think of the opportunity.

            I’m putting the cart before the horse here, because I don’t have the source at hand for the following claim; I should look first, but I didn’t, and I don’t want to lose my post.

            That said, I thought that, recently, some federal law or another was passed (or at least discussed) to just that effect: if a blog or website has UNMODERATED comments, the blog owner IS NOT responsible for them; but if comments are moderated, then the blog owner IS responsible for what is posted.

            It’s a ridiculous policy/law: imagine how clogged with advertising and/or trolling the comment section could get without SOME moderation. But remove a single one and the owner becomes liable for the rest of it? What a can of worms it opens! Is a homeowner responsible for every word uttered in his house? The county for every slur said at school? Ridiculous! The potential dampening effect on free exchange alone should be enough to prove the idiocy of this policy.

          • As we type I think there is no single interpretation of the law that many feel was written to defend the hosting companies who don’t deal with content at all and shouldn’t be considered ‘publishers.’ A decision came down in Pennsylvania over the summer that was considered sort of landmark that held that a blogger couldn’t be found liable even if he did moderate content. More decisions in the last year have interpreted that law to immunize bloggers, but experts don’t think the battle is over because most americans don’t fully agree that bloggers aren’t publishers.

            All this is moot for MHB, though, because the plaintiff suing for defamation would have to prove these claims are untrue. I also suspect liability for a blogger even in cases where a court held them accountable for defamatory statements made by commenters might only start after the plaintiff sends them notice.

You can convince them of just about any outrage happening in that world. And, too, they want to keep their status and their belonging to a privileged group. You cannot stay in the charmed circle unless you surrender your right to certain forms of critique.

          Who can forget the memorial service for the campus cop supposedly killed by the Tsarnaev brothers – you won’t forget, actually, because now there is a large gray granite igloo of a monument between the Koch building and the Gehry-designed computer science building dedicated to the man allegedly shot there, on the sidewalk, in his cruiser, right at the very spot where the monument was raised.

          One wry and gentlemanly professor (who did not fall off a turnip cart yesterday) said that when he looked at the officials on the dais for this occasion, he saw the politburo in all its glory.

            They conflate the capacities in which he speaks or in the case of this blog, mostly fosters speech generally:

            “Attempting to fire a tenured professor will be one of Kelly’s first real tests, and we applaud him for stepping up to the challenge. The process will be public and likely messy, but it’s hard to see how the university’s board of trustees, or a jury in court, could listen to Tracy’s words and believe he belongs in a classroom.

            “Tenure is not immunity,” we were told by Jeffrey S. Morton, Ph.D., a tenured FAU professor of International Law.

            “His harassment of the parents of murdered children was vulgar, repulsive and an insult to the academic profession. Faculty concerned about the status of tenure should, in fact, be relieved that FAU began termination procedures,” Morton said in an email.

            “While there are real reasons to protect tenure for academic research, Tracy’s “scholarship” makes a mockery of what academics do. His termination both holds Tracy accountable for his despicable behavior and reduces pressure on elected officials to end tenure.”

            The entire witch hunt pivots on the outright lie that James Tracy in any way ‘harassed’ the Pozners, who were the ones to harass him with false claims of copyright infringement (even if a Lenny Pozner owned the copyright claim to a picture of Noah, the fair use clause protects James Tracy as the Pozners submitted that picture to various media outlets well before it was posted on this blog. ‘Reporters’ are also ignoring that the photo was removed in spite of the protection ‘fair use’ afforded him.)

            It also pivots on people somehow missing that Tracy’s persecutors are conflating personal and professional life. This blog has no affiliation with FAU and is therefore strictly a personal life endeavor for James Tracy. There have been no charges whatsoever filed much less adjudicated in any court related to his activities here.

            Gosh I hope there are at least some academics who have the mettle to recognize this – and to fight it. Same goes for the average taxpayer whose earnings support any public university.

            This is way bigger than sheer tenure. A man is being fired for allegations of ‘criminal’ behavior that have no basis in fact or legitimate due process adjudication.

            This could happen to anyone.

  5. Waking up? Who knows. I just got a call from my sister on the road back home from her school – all LA Unified schools have been shut down today due to an unspecified threat. She said that as she neared home she saw large numbers of high school students milling around – perhaps they were dropped off by their buses.

    She was disgusted that one statement by someone could result in such a widespread shut-down (and the formation of these “flash mobs” of kids too). We talked about the anxiety being generated in kids. She said she felt the message from on high was: “We are at war.” I asked her to consider my earlier experience with the 6-town martial law shutdown in the Boston suburbs – allegedly to look for Tsarnaev. Our own brother had been in town for a college visit with his son, and they drove through the empty streets (and on the route he followed, he said there were no police roadblocks or a military presence of any kind, just voluntary “sheltering in place”). We really get around in my family – at least in So. Calif. and Boston plus New York; I also have relatives of my husband’s in Paris. So we are witnesses to this kind of thing, and the general mood is one of preparation for conflict (I would say), and the teaching of the general public that they have something to fear through fear itself.

    “Be afraid, be very afraid, and obey.” Because the chaos which will be generated eventually by this messing around with peoples’ heads will require some kind of dictatorship, apparently.

    My sister is the kind of person who thinks truthers are like cable users – losers – but today’s gross inconvenience is causing her to think a little more deeply. She’s not ready to say she was lied to before, but today looks like it is an over-reaction. But she thinks they may come up with a valid reason soon. If so, I think she may accept it.

I immediately looked up Farook because even I, neither a master debater nor someone serious (?) enough to run for President, recalled he was American. Yep. Born in Chicago, too.

            So facts are unimportant to these guys. They are only interested in pushing buttons in people and doing push polls to get the response they are seeking.

            That’s why something that has even recently happened will not be
            recalled in its details (whether actual or in the case of San Berdoo, very likely fictional). It’s like when someone comes to class and hasn’t read the book and makes b.s. comments — these are the type of students our politicians mostly were. I hear JEB was a Phi Beta Kappa, but it is clear his hesitation to speak and shoot from the hip, his superior intelligence to his far more popular brother, can only hold him back (not to say I’d vote for any of them).

      It seems to me that schools will have to have military protection and be fortresses. Why are they so expendable? Why is our way of life so easy to cast aside? LA is now a big warehouse for Chinese-manufactured goods, and the former industrial workers are fewer and fewer to be found. That is how illegals used to be employed – now it is all food services. In the end, you have to something you make as a society, and education is to teach you how to do it. I guess that’s out the window or thrown under school bus now. Will LA become a wasteland – and what will be built in its place?

People cannot see behind the curtain most of the time, so they believe a woman hanging by one hand (seemingly) from a window in Paris. They cannot see the harness, and they like the “frisson” of horror at it too. There is a pleasure in these dramatic bloody events which few will admit to themselves. I suppose if Andy Warhol were alive today, he’d spell it out in another picture with a headline attached, then you could see the irony. “Tunafish Disaster – Did a Leak Kill?” for a botulism poisoning from one of those supermarket cans he loved so much to portray. I wonder how he would caption the woman hanging from the window – a pregnant woman they said, who sometimes hung by one hand, sometimes by the other. He’d see a Catholic iconography there no doubt, as with his Jackie dolorosa. Of course you’d only see a terror image like that in a country with a bunch of cathedrals to the Virgin. We have different iconography when we fake terror. The cowboy hat.

I read that LA Unified contains 1,000 schools from K-12, and also 640,000 students (many of whom have working parents who were not anticipating such a disruption). On the strength of this phone call, so it is said, and because of the recent event in San Berdoo, officials deemed it advisable to shut down everything. They said they wanted the building staffs of these schools to look over everything out of place during the day when the shut-down was in force, to see if anything looked amiss. The teachers were told not to come in or sent home.

          Any skepticism that this was not already planned as a shutdown day? This cannot be the first time someone called in a threat, and it is not likely to be the last. Is every threat in the future to be taken this seriously?

          I imagine that someone will turn up something somewhere, and everyone will be so relieved that the threat was de-fused. Probably the squad that disables devices will come to the area, perhaps in more than one location, shut down a few roads during rush hour, and generally milk the drama for every bit of public involvement (sitting on the freeway for hours). I can almost see the thing playing out, because not to come up with something will disappoint everyone. What was the line from “The Prestige”? “The pledge, the turn and the prestige.” The pledge is when you are staring at something ordinary – I guess I would say it is going to school in the morning, then the turn – you cannot come in because of a threat – and then the prestige – Hey presto, they blew up something they said contained a terrorist bomb.

            My sister, returning back from her early morning drive to her school in LA, told me she imagined it had something to do with an anniversary of Sandy Hook, which was an interesting first impression on her part. I had seen it as associated with the recent San Berdoo “massacre” – and understood LA to have said that after this incident they could not dismiss the email (or phone call – not sure how it was communicated). New York had not such recent publicity, so apparently was free to continue as usual, but So Cal is still wrapped up in this post-traumatic mood, with a lot of recent radio etc. This shows how one event builds on another, and how suspicion due to a prior event or pageant, causes the threshold for belief to drop considerably.

      Beyond danger, “feelings” are now a measure of acceptability. Anyone claiming that their feelings are damaged, unless they’re white and Christian of course, trumps their rights to free thought and expression.

      We are no longer on a slippery slope. We have fallen off a cliff. It matters not what is written, if no one practices the principles defined they are effectively null and void.

      People have a fundamental choice to choose freedom or control. It seems they have chosen control rather than expose themselves to the rantings of the privileged.

      The answer for speech that we disagree with is, of course, more speech. We do not need permission to hold contrary opinions. Where does the authority come from to demand that we believe a story?

      It is both disgusting and frightening that those in positions to use punitive measures against those they disagree with are able to abuse that authority with the blessing of the media.

      What is the lesson being taught here? “Be careful” seems to be the message. You must test the water and determine whether anyone claims offense. Don’t say anything controversial, someone may not like it.

      There isn’t a day that goes by that I am not offended by something. That’s life. I don’t appreciate being manipulated by either the media or “our” government. As citizens we have the right to say so. We should have the expectation that “authorities” will respect that.

The concurrence by Brandeis (and Holmes) earlier, was based on the idea that if the communists who were being prosecuted should only lose their free speech rights based on “clear and present danger”, but that notion became seen for what it was in the intervening years – the need to suppress dissent in the public by the powerful in order to retain power at the expense of constitutional guarantees.

  10. James, its been a long road but your persistence for the truth has gained you much respect and a great deal of admiration for your courageous spirit.

    As John Ralston Saul stated in his book The Unconscious Civilization, ‘The engaged citizen risks her/his reputation in public, needs a thick skin, must listen to others at great length, must learn how to make beliefs and causes fit in with those of others.’

    (I added his because Saul used her as generalization to all as far as I could tell)

    Saul evoked that statement in his worry and concern that the new structure being built into society, a structure that preferred the group over the individual was going to lessen individual/citizen responsibility to the good of society and it was going to swallow away what has always been known as the ‘engaged citizen.’

    He wrote those words way back in 1947 in his explanation of what was going to happen to Universities, places of education and Professors. His warnings were many and were stark.

    You and many other Professors’ lives now embody what Saul laid out as the great struggle to escape enforced echo chambers in this new society and find the way back to the good citizen. So enough with the public accusations of conspiracy theories and theorists, this struggle was written into literary history before any of you ever took up the battle.

    God bless you and family James. You have my utmost respect because I admire perseverance and as a media analyst you stand tall and cast a big shadow. Your intellectual integrity shines forth for all to see. Keep the wind at your back my friend.

    • Surely those hoping to lay suit against Dr. Tracy won’t follow through. Why? Up against the truth, such a suit with court adjudication would expose, say, EXPOSE, those who played parts in this “event”. Does anybody think Governor Malloy would be “glad to go to court” over this incident when there are great questions with his involvement in various aspects of the brouhaha? Just sayin’….
      Do you think Robbie Parker would relish the chance to give his side of the story in court?

      Court stuff is threatening, no doubt about it. Of course, when truth is on your side, kinda evens the score, eh?

    • I can only amplify and echo Possum’s sentiments, Dr. Tracy. I began as a Huffington Post addict, and when news hit that site of a group of inquirists who doubted that any lives at all were lost in Sandy Hook, I was contemptuous of such a notion, in my ignorance.
      Frankly, I’m not a firearms fan, and formerly supported laws to scale back their ownership because I had never seen into the long game of the ‘powers that be’. I certainly see it clearly now – once seen, it cannot be unseen.
      In a sense, this isn’t about gun laws for me, but about the now-rampant deceptions of a government who commits fraud at every turn to take what it wants. To stop THAT, I am now willing to speak up in my community. That will be a BIG surprise to a number of folks around here…
      The net sum of this government game is that there will be many NEW gun owners like me now able to protect our families and nation against any threat, foreign or domestic. The country belongs to the people, not the corporations.

    Further examples of the allegorical script references in the “Adam Lanza” narrative, were provided, somewhat belatedly, by the NY Daily News article linked below.

    In this instance, a strange sounding caller to a radio show, named “Greg” waxes lyrical about the Travis chimpanzee attack on 16 February 2009.

    The inferences / parallels between the “savage behaviour” of our near primate cousins on Xanax and “teenage mall shooters”, presumbaly on Celexa / Citalopram, are made by the caller Greg …

    The narrative avers that “Adam Lanza” was prescribed Celexa by the Yale Child Study Centre …

  12. As usual I find it interesting when people use the US Constitution’s guaranteed protections to SUBVERT THOSE VERY PROTECTIONS. I also find it interesting when comments like “the burden of proof falls squarely on the professor” originate from Rockefeller-created NATIONAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION, an organization designed to essentially institutionalize political correctness in academia to begin with. IMO this is a neo-communist attack on most of the 10 amendments & it’s NO coincidence that the Gun-Grabbers are simultaneously attacking both the 2nd & 1st amendments, as well as the principle of American Jurisprudence that says that you’re innocent until proven guilty. It’s obvious that when they can’t overcome facts & logic, they employ LOGICAL FALLACIES, and these psychopaths HAVE NO SHAME since facts won’t be allowed to get in the way of “the agenda”.

    On another note: I attempted to write a comment of support to The Florida Sentinel but I was blocked…after reading some of the comments, its looking not too pleasant for the THOUGHT POLICE, as the Professor is receiving more support than they anticipated. A betting man would investigate the funding sources and the behind the scenes influence being exercised…perhaps possible connections to Former NYC Mayor MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG?

To a man, me excluded, all of these rough customers insist the 6 pm newscasters would never, ever, ever lie to the American public. I try to reason with them. I try to create doubt in their ironclad minds, I try to expose pieces of information that would germinate a legitimate doubt in their minds. If I score a point today, I lose a point tomorrow on the same issue. True believers sayeth Hoffer are true believers, they are not skin deep in their adherences to putative truths aka sneaky lies. Why?

      A single rational person immersed in a crowd does not retain his belief structure, he gets the crowd induced fever and becomes irrational, emotional, often violent, more convinced than ever. Are we talking about the effects of pheromones that homogenize the group mind? What fuses the separate minds of the crowd into a homogeneous throng? Surely it is well known why this happens, read the book “The Crowd: A study of the Popular Mind” by Gustave Le Bon. Published in the late 1890’s. it is remarkably up to date in its analysis.
      We have not been mechanistically adequate in asking why people appear to refuse consideration of alternate ideas. People that I interface with can get hostile when new ideas are placed before them. Are they insulted because I am belittling them? Are they thin skinned? Lazy?
      I maintain that we don’t apply LeBon’s dead-on analysis of people to our situation at Sandy Hook. We are not reaching people, we don’t get to their core. We think we do, LeBon tells us different. Understand the crowd’s mentality and you will learn how to reach people. Study the crowd. Just because a member of the crowd is not surrounded by the crowd does not mean he is more likely to succumb to your convincing analysis, either.

      Read Gustave Le Bon. His book might be available on the Net as a freebie. Highly recommended, you’ll be infused with optimism, something we don’t have at present.

    • It’s always easier to try people in the court of innuendo. The Hartford Courant had what appears to be a whole new raft of shillers on their online version last evening, Monday. Their methodology mimicked the lead-in to the Salem witch trials. Harsh, vicious talk that implied the gallows were waiting for disbelievers. It was striking in it’s synchrony and timing. All of a sudden, Poof!, the club carrying mob went out in search of some putative wife and child beater and was going to lay some frontier justice on the non-adjudicated “offender”. This is how things are done today. While the court of public opinion has been around a long time, the post-911 version is more refined in its disdain for reason and justice. It reminds one of how Henry Morgenthau invoked jewish anger in his quest to have Germany destroyed as a nation, where courts were all kangaroo and given to judgments, not adjudications.
      Would-be sue-ers, no pun intended, talk very, very big but will they really be willing to lay their cards in-toto on the table for examination by neutral eyes? I rather doubt it. Connecticut’s fabled FOIA court barfed all over itself several times in the Wolf Halbig ruminations. It likely thinks we have forgotten about this travesty. We haven’t, and we won’t.
      Sooner or later, this intrigue will become the Thrilla in Manila. It’s going to get rough and vicious but I feel that in any fair court, the good guys are going to prevail.
      No dark sider that threatens suit wants to go on state and national TV and retch and belch on behalf of established lies. Mushrooms hate the light of day and so do these agents of our would-be demise.

  13. Under the hypothesis that SHE was “simply” a morbid act of street theater, the attacks directed at James are to be expected. If the mass media did not excoriate his and other researchers’ work, they would indirectly invite their viewers/readers to explore the possibility that SHE was a hoax and increase the risk of a popular backlash against disinformation. As such, the attacks increase the credibility of the hoax hypothesis over the official massacre hypothesis’.

    This situation raises the question of how scholars can expose institutionalized disinformation without exposing themselves to vicious personal attacks. One line of investigation would be a search for an instance of grand obfuscation that would be so blatant that the mass media would be afraid of defending it: finding a hoax much more obvious than SHE. Easier said than done!

    I’ll also add that the alleged SHE hoax and the subsequent personal attacks against James and others are not only the work of criminal government agents and dishonest reporters all around the world. Organizations that lose clout when an insane gunman allegedly massacres a group of people with no good excuse vitally contribute to the hoax’ success. In this case, gun rights advocacy institutions, like the U.S. Libertarian Party, are essential players, as they con their gullible members and supporters into swallowing the official myth line, hook and sinker. Their motives and means to question SHE dwarf James’, yet they toe the official narrative. Accordingly, they bear much responsibility for the hit pieces against James and other independent SHE researchers.

  14. This tripe from “Noah’s” supposed Grandmother was in my Chicago Tribune today…..

    I’m copying it here because you have to sign-up to read.

    My eyes hurt from rolling so much.

    Motives do not matter to the dead. They don’t matter much to survivors, either. When my 6-year-old grandson, Noah, was gunned down three years ago at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., along with 19 other first-graders and six educators, we were engulfed in a grief so brutal and so profound that an explanation was the last thing we sought. We just wanted life the way it had been. We wanted Noah back. We still do. Badly.

    Only a month earlier, while visiting from the West Coast, I had gone to the school book fair with the kids. We sat by the big window that the killer would later blow open to force his way in. Noah, his twin sister, his 7-year-old older sister and I read aloud from the books we had bought while waiting for their mom to be done with her three parent-teacher conferences. The kids made jokes, they laughed, they jostled each other. I treasure the picture I took of them on that small wooden bench. There was such love among these three, such complicity. The strongest of bonds.

    Noah was an adorable little rascal, full of passion, full of love. He was fun, he was witty, he was fresh, he was everything a kid should be. I miss him terribly. I miss the boy I knew, and I miss the man he would have become. A whole life stolen. From him, from us.

    Gun control inaction makes mass shootings a way of life

    He was killed minutes after drop-off. He had been happy and excited. He was invited to a pool birthday party the following day, and he couldn’t wait for Saturday to arrive. Only he never lived another Saturday. The next time any of us saw him, he was lying in a casket at a funeral home, his face untouched, still perfect, as though he were sleeping. He looked like he might wake up. But of course he didn’t.

    A couple of months ago, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson, a neurosurgeon, wrote that he had never seen a body with bullet holes that was more devastating “than taking the right to arm ourselves away.” Presumably Carson never saw one of his kids or grandkids bullet-ridden and forever stilled.

    The Sandy Hook murderer was possibly insane, or a psychopath, certainly a terrorist. I don’t know, and I don’t care. The only common denominator among mass shooters is that, one way or another, by means legal or illegal, they manage to get their hands on weapons, often military-style weapons, and use them to inflict maximum harm on unsuspecting civilians.

    Guns don’t kill; people do. Yes, that’s true. An open society can never protect itself completely from evil or insanity. But it can start by preventing the distribution of the powerful weapons and ammunition that have been used to kill our grandson and so many other innocents.

    Kids have the right to grow up. Parents and grandparents have the right to see them do it. We don’t need another reason.

    I’m working my way through the book, Nobody Died at Sandy Hook.

    I have many events already recorded for the Sandy Hook event so I’m very grateful for having a handy hardcopy reference to the myriad sources for the Sandy Hook script, especially James Tracy’s Timeline in Appendix C. Thank you one and all.

    Today, for example, the Hartford Courant article mentioned on page 324 has been deconstructed, very easily …

    Mass Murders Captivated Online User Believed To Be Adam Lanza

    http://articles.courant.com/2013-06-30/news/hc-adam-lanza-online-posts-20130630_1_wikipedia-poster-user

    That “piece” follows the script construction method seen so frequently in other psyops by including references to alleged events which are included in the narrative as allegorical references to other events, for the sole purpose of revealing the real perps and / or consolidation of the script.

    The article directs the user to the internet forum, http://www.thehighroad.org/ – “an online discussion board dedicated to the discussion and advancement of responsible firearms ownership.”

    By searching that forum for the texts mentioned by the Courant, the poster’s username, which the Courant does not reveal, but reports “who authorities believe was Newtown gunman Adam Lanza”, is revealed to be “Kaynbred”.

    Similarly, references in the Courant aticle to other shooting events are included for the same reasons.

    If someone who is familiar with Wikipedai would care to research the Courant claims about “Adam Lanza’s” alleged “Wikipedia editing” that would be a valubale contribution …

    Perhaps one day, media studies courses will include this method ?

    As an example, the Courant states:

    “He [ Adam Lanza ] would have been 17 years old at the time of the posts …”

    The mythical “Adam Lanza” entity has the “birth date attribute” set to 22 April 1992.

    The first post for user “Kaynbred” on thehighroad.org was made on 26 August 2009

    So, the “Adam Lanza” entity would have been precisely :

    = 17 years, 17 months, 7 days old

    http://www.timeanddate.com/date/dateadded.html?d1=22&m1=4&y1=1992&type=add&ay=17&am=&aw=17&ad=7&rec=

    Which is occult speak is :

    = P7 years, P7 months, 7 days > 777

    http://www.numberplanet.com/number/11/index.html

    *

    Similarly, the last post the user Kaynbred made was on 23 February 2010, which was the 1026th day before the “Sandy Hook” event on 14 December 2012.

    1026 yields the familiar 3×3 grid of 911 and / or 3119

    Just two of the many decoded references in the article.

    *

    I’ve said before, many times, that every so-called “shooting event” is an attack on the US Constitution & 2nd Amendment.

    14 December 2012 was precisely :

    = 1321 months, 1321 days + 1321 days

    from the 4th March 1789 when the Constitution CIF (Came Into Force )

    1321 = P216 = P( 6x6x6 )

    Thus:

    = P( 6x6x6 ) months

    P( 6x6x6 ) days
    P( 6x6x6 ) days >

    666 666 666

    It was also, the inclusive, 221st anniversary of the adoption of the first 10 Amendments on 15 December 1791

    which, in occult speak is:

    = 343 months + 2309 months

    = 7x7x7 months + P( 7x7x7 ) months > 777 777

    *

    There are also very strong indicators to :

    GHW Bush

    Hillary Clinton

    The British Mandate for Palestine

    Dick Cheney

    Barack Obama

    Adolf Hitler

    Paramahansa Yogananda

    et al

    numerous other shooting events etc

    Perhaps the simplest to understand for now, is the relationship to the Federal Assault Weapons Ban, which began on 13 September 1994

    ( the very same day that the OKC narrative alleges that “Timothy McVeigh” started his “plot” … )

    and expired on 13 September 2004

    The “psyocpaths that be”, referenced the interval from this expiry to the “Sandy Hook” punishment event on 14 December 2012 thus :

    = 9 x 11 months

      Those kids must have been the most socialized children in the world and A380’s must have been used on 9/11.

  17. Many commenters argue that Sandy Hook is believed by the American people based on deceit. This is not the case, their belief is mostly based on delusion, a different thing. Of course for American power this is a process of delusion management, a deceitful process, and Obama, amazingly, put the US state behind this fantasy scenario to quell authorized dissent. But it is different for the American people who are subjected to the delusion management by American power.

    Initially I thought that the notion that this mass murder did not occur was preposterous. Power lies all the time; indeed, American power is largely based on ideological delusion, but that it would concoct a staged operation like this has no historical basis. American power routinely lies about what occurs, but not that it DOES indeed occur.

    But more or less accidentally, since I seldom watch videos, I viewed Robbie Parker pretending to be a bereaved parent, raising money for the Bereaved families. Why? Why would they hire an actor to do that?
    So then I read prof Tracy’s revelations, and was astonished to find that he was right. But it must be understood that this subverted the delusive preconceptions that I had about what occurs, and does not occur, in history.

    It is worse for some other Americans. An intelligent guy who does some construction work for me was so affected and shocked by Sandy Hook that he had nightmares about the massacre. it was EMOTIONALLY very real to him. When I relayed Tracy’s argument to him, he simply COULDN’T accept them emotionally. Whether he does or not, as the emotion fades, is problematical, because power is on the side of untruth, and he is vulnerable to power.

    So Tracy must be defended, not only the basis that what he says is true, but that he giving his opinion on the basis of the evidence he has collected. That even if he is wrong (he is not) there are anomalies that it is the function of media specialists to expose. This would be less threatening to his defenders, and over time they would be more able to digest the unauthorized and unprofessional truth about power delusions.

    • As you mention in the story of the contractor who has nightmares over the event, no one can say what is roused in people by this, even perhaps depression, temptation to act it out themselves (in very immature people), the need to make a statement (attacks on mosques). At a certain level the government is right: whether or not it really happened hardly matters, if it can have such an emotional effect. That is why, in my opinion, they need never pull a Gladio killing: the public is so believing and trusting, it would not be necessary.

      But what are the objectives of the emotional impact? Historically, it is said that Rome needed to share with its mob the sensation of being in the places where it was spreading its conquests. We tend to believe in the reality of gladiatorial combat to the death, so that the public could really see a killing. But the circus had its tricks. The purpose was imperial, and that was to keep the mob occupied much like a television that was on half the year. How could fine thinkers and artists and generally classy Romans exist alongside this display? Well, they could until the internal problems of maintaining an empire caused collapse. You could look at the Colosseum as symptom. Unfortunately these hoaxes strike me pretty much the same way. It is desperation. Not even simple gun grabbing, I suppose, since there is as much rationale for arming yourself after hearing about this stuff as there is for taking away everyone’s guns. It just kind of balances out, but still the shows continue.

      I’ll be listening for signs of an underlying rationale in the San Bernardino event, if the chirping of all the other talking heads do not drown out what is coming from the San Berdoo chief cop.

      After a few days I was able to talk to him about it. He now understands that it was a hoax. He cannot explain his initial reaction.

      • I am following an online course on fiction writing. One of the best lectures in it is about how we believe that a fictional character is real, and how our emotions are engaged by it. On a more mundane level, you have a soap opera, one of the most popular forms of vicarious living.
        You also have the image-making of candidates and of products which are sold by creating identifications. Direct tv and cable characters are contrasted – direct tv guys are smooth and savvy, while cable tv users are losers. The campaign against those who question MSM is a bit like that – the public is told that if they leave the MSM to examine “unvetted” material, they will be like the cable user and people will back away from them like they smell bad.

        But the creation of these Sandy Hook parents falls squarely into the tradition of how to make a fictional character – it is simple and intense, without a lot of boring continuity. We see the character mostly in some crisis – the primary crisis, then the secondary one of dealing with the first. The person is presented with a halo at sporting events, at memorial services, at places where they are receiving comfort and compassion. It’s a whole series of encounters to burnish the image, much as a political candidate would be presented. And so those who believe the story begin to feel that they know this person, or so they say. Real people do not generally move us this way. How many of the people who identify with the parents at Sandy Hook and defend them now against disbelief, would in their private lives spend half as much time with a real bereaved person? The ability to grieve with Sandy Hook does not involve middle of night phone calls – it is all so convenient and consumable.

  18. I have mentioned here more than once that I discovered James Tracy through the reporting of the “nutty conspiracy professor,” and never went away.

    I have also repeatedly mentioned that what’s great about Tracy is his scrupulousness in sticking just to the facts, ma’am. He never cooks up a “theory” about what happens behind the stories the press promotes. He’s a media analyst, and he offers this world-wide graduate seminar the opportunity to flesh it out. That’s all.

    So if Lenny were to take him to court, there would be no evidence against him. He’s just presenting the media’s complete lack of genuine reporting. We, in the comment section, thrash out the theories about the motives and the techniques used to misdirect the public mind.

    So here, Lenny is trying another tack to destroy an honest man, by driving him into penury–but not using the courts (apparently, Lenny is suing Wolf, to destroy him financially, but that’s another story).

    Everyone who prays should be praying for James Tracy, and for his family. This is Christmas time, and the stress must be particularly burdensome for him. I’m glad he let us know about this. Pray for him and his family.

The entire set up is frauds that put their family and friends in positions. Sandy Hook and the other BS events, including terrorism, simply expand bureaucracy and open more phony jobs for real money. We failed watchful eye and we are now, in fact, slaves.

    • Pat, there is nothing wrong, per se, with coming up with theories. Science uses theories and subsequent research to elucidate the deep, dark unknowns. You make a hypothesis based on a null assumption, and then you try to destroy the null assumption.
      Why I say this is because the many engineers and scientists who attacked the unknowns behind 911 went through many steps prior to coming up with the current knowledge and this included making the null hypothesis first and foremost. Sure, if you are writing for a scholarly journal, you have to take a different tack, but people out in la-la land should be exposed to some ideas to keep their minds as flexible as possible. We are not winning the minds of enough Americans with all of our pomp and circumstance, so what is the solution to this? Yes, there are many variables that impede our progress but we’ve got to become as multivalent as possible so we can attract as many outliers as possible and bring them to the realm of analytical thought, not just TeeVee watching. We fail more than we succeed, agreed?

      • I completely agree with you Gil.

        My point is to do with how James approaches his specialty. So-called “conspiracy theory” has been made into a “third rail,” almost certain to electrocute you on the spot if you touch it. James has made examining media pageants a subspecialty of his primary one, media criticism.

        So, rather than immediately, or even gradually, open himself to be labeled a kook, and be brushed aside as an unserious person, he has scrupulously held his tongue (and keyboard fingers) about what he believes about the various false flags and hoaxes. He presents the raw reporting of the press, and asks questions about their reporting, and why they ignore important evidence. When others speculate as to why the press is behaving as it is, James presents the theories as they develop.

        So if Lenny took Tracy to court, he could find no evidence of what he believes happened at Sandy Hook that morning. All he will find is Tracy’s willingness to encourage even the wildest speculation of the fevered minds of conspiracy-land. There is no evidence Tracy believes these things; his business is examining how the press does its business.

        This puts Lenny in a tight spot, if he wants to close James Tracy down. So he’s trying to get him fired from his position, with the assumption that no other University would hire him in the wake of the controversy that surrounds his work here at MHB.

        James’ scrupulousness in not showing his cards should block any effort to get him fired of course, but when God handed out spines he did not give any to University Administrators. They are the most craven louts known to man, and no doubt would LOVE to no longer have to deal with this particular controversy. Hence the effort within Tracy’s employer/institution to somehow be empowered to revoke tenure.

        I’ll bet that if James had systematically told everyone which theories he believes in no uncertain terms, his ability to withstand this storm would be considerably lessened.

    • There is a part of me that thinks it would be nice to “get into court” and destroy them. That, however, is a fallacy. I suspect that “Lenny” is a construct. I could be wrong.

      There is nothing illegal about questioning a story. It is quite easy to avoid the trauma of someone’s writing by simply not reading it.

      “Mr. Smith goes to Washington” died a long time ago. In real life university presidents and provosts are subject to pressure. When the governor of a state and various federal officials are part of a fraud the ante gets pretty high.

      Is this right? Of course not. The reality is that “right” only wins in the realm of the Spirit, not in politics and skullduggery.

      In a textbook version we are perfectly within our rights to disbelieve anything. If someone wants us to believe a story the burden of proof is on them. If someone accuses you of murder it would be handy to have a corpse. Of course, quite improperly, some have been adjudged guilty of murder WITHOUT a corpse.

      TEE VEE is not “proof”. Just because the amazingly strange A.C. looks balefully into the lens and swears it to be true does not make it so. What sort of training do you think he got down at The Company?

      In my humble opinion it is them who need to be sued. We are not threatening anyone. We are asking for proof.

        …no one dies in ambulance or in hospital. ZERO! They all die on the scene. Impossible.

        Quite so. Any physician with experience covering an Emergency Department is familiar with situations in which the ambulance crews “scoop-and-run” everything except the obvious dead-right-there cases in the hope that some resuscitative effort might be successful at the hospital (and this is true rather more often than most people might surmise). Most often, all you can do is pronounce death – and the moment at which the physician makes that pronouncement is recorded as the legal time of death – but there are situations in which the spark of life persists, and the treatment protocols can secure a rescue.

        26 fatal gunshot wound cases, 2 allegedly wounded and survived (Hammond and Pisani), “one injured child was taken to a hospital for treatment, but was later declared dead” (Wiki-bloody-pedia; one kid?) but no indication that any victim underwent implementation of Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) protocols on the scene or Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) procedures once they’re brought to the nearest hospital? Any such documentation? Any reports written or dictated? What the hell?

    • Your comment catalyzed an insight that’s been roiling around my brain for these years. Various elements of Sandy Hook struck me as obviously fake, but one less highlighted one was not just the 100% kill ratio, it was the number of bullets supposedly fired into each victim. Besides the obvious problem of a 112 pound weakling managing to tote around the weaponry/ammunition necessary to support the tally, alongside of the time required to reload, there was this issue of an asperger’s/autist type committing such an act. Autism is similar in a way to psychosis; both are self referential and lock the sufferers of them in a certain myopia.

      It’s a mutually exclusive posture to want to murder all these people at the same time as being imprisoned by such emotional tunnel vision. The number of bullets really got to me, and now I realize why. It’s just not the nature of someone so incapable of getting out of that tunnel to lash out with such premeditation and controlled broad scale anger. True psychosis is rarely violent as it precludes the grasp on concretes that aggression requires, while autistics grasp the concrete details so obsessively it disables the kind of broad scale hateful ‘vision’ attributed to Adam Lanza.

  20. If the Pozners, and others, really wanted to hurt you and make you look stupid, they would release all the information and documents they’ve been hiding from the public. But obviously, they can’t. The people who are behind Sandy Hook rely on the ignorance, apathy and misplaced emotions of the easily distracted public. And that’s a very difficult, if not impossible, thing to get around.

    However, I believe that at least subconsciously, many more people than we realize know there is something very wrong with this event. The people have forgotten this “atrocity” pretty quickly and that’s why the supposed family members/actors must try to keep it alive.

    I hope that in my lifetime I will be able to witness this fraud crumble and the people who participated suffer the legal consequences.

    • I’ve asked myself and other confidants the question “do a lot of people know something is rotten in Denmark or not”? I’d like to agree with you on this issue, but cannot. People do not read newspapers cover to cover. A selective process is in play and their mind’s eye selects things to read below the level of their consciousness. First of all, reading a newspaper is like reading a journal of disinfo. The “news” is gathered and doctored before being printed.
      When a news reporter goes down on Main St. and interviews people by asking a question or two, very often the person being asked a very simple question cannot answer it. Like, is President Obama a Democrat or Republican, for instance. Loads of people cannot answer this question. LaLa Land is alive and well in America.
      People don’t know. They don’t know and hide their knowledge, they just don’t know, period. They never did because they were hit with the BS paddle right during the initial stages of the SH reporting period and this formed the template for their adoption of lies and disinfo. Once the initial DNA is laid down, the person uses this as his basis for evaluation of subsequent verbiage. After a period of, say, 6 months, people have been cluster bombed with lies and disinfo from every angle and they adopt this as their weltanschauung on the subject.

    • Right now, the Pozners are posting at sympathetic sites, or their statement is being published at them (much like various pundits). The comments below their trashing of Tracy are interesting, because the commenters range from those who merely want to comfort the bereaved, those who realize that to go to certain places means you are not a nice person (because you really hate Obama, are a Holocaust denier, etc.), and those who think a rhetorical question is the same as a factual question, and that by posing it they have asked all that need be asked.

      Nobody who agrees with the Pozner’s seems to dispute about facts or sufficiency of evidence. It just does not compute for them. There are also those who think that to question such an event is tantamount to “hate speech” (which might explain some of Trump’s popularity – his tendency to say things which are unspeakable lately, whether true or useful or not). I also see that many seek a more European system here – no guns, and jailing for forbidden speech (two sides of the same coin, perhaps).

      Meanwhile, the Pozner’s seem content enough to keep up the griping about how hurt they are, threatening to sue, but never filing. They have no claim they can actually make, under our legal system. But there are those who believe that in questioning the event, those seemingly affected by it have been injured in some way. Thus free speech and free inquiry supposedly causes actual injury because there is suffering from hearing such disbelief. Anyone who would allow such a suit the time of day would be incapable of understanding the First Amendment.

      There are also those who think academic tenure is allowing Tracy to get away with too much freedom of thought. Some even seek to consider FSU as having been created by their own peoples’ money, therefore it should not be allowed to have people teaching there who, they project, belong to some enemy group, inimical to closed ranks of their own (around people like the Pozner’s). The underlying truth of the matter means less than nothing to them, and academic tenure is only for those who have passed their litmus tests.

The author of the post calls into question some of the evidence put forth in the book. I don’t know if this relates to the part of the book James Tracy is responsible for, but are you planning to publish an answer to this attempt to debunk the book?

    The author seems invested in the defense of Sandy Hook as a real event and is by no means an impartial “analyst”. He is seemingly an ally of the Pozner family and his critique is tainted by slander and sarcasm.

    • Why do these criminals use staged hoaxes?

      The following video is an absolutely brilliant discussion from a clinician who explains why the staged or hoax model is used rather than real events. This is a must-listen for anybody interested in understanding this topic. Almost all criminals tend to start with the “Poor Me, I’m a Victim” meme as cover for their evil or criminality. Ownership of victim-hood is a powerful franchise to be used to attack and suppress targeted groups.

      Real people and real events “go off the tracks.” Real victims don’t follow scripts, can’t be controlled and get to be problems for the Crime Syndicate. The first truthers from 9/11 were real families of real victims.

  22. Hi James Tracy,

    I thought college was a place of critical thinking, higher learning, and higher inquiry. The subject matter aside, isn’t it part of education to have alternate views, and explore differences of opinions, those opinions based on substantial research and investigation?

    I was listening to John B Wells program, Caravan to Midnight, that interviewed Dr Hamamoto, from UC Davis, California, recently. He is finding himself in a similar position of intimidation for some of his insights into cultural manipulations of students, faculty, and all people, actually. In your situation, you have a name or head that is using intimidation and manipulation to attack you, personally, to damage control any inquiry regarding the perception of loss. It is becoming increasingly more insidious and visible that there is some serious power behind this censorship.

    Dr. Hamamoto, mentioned that he has obtained an attorney by the name of Mr. Segal to represent him in any actions taken against him by the institution. He mentioned that another notable facility member retained him due to similar suppression. I don’t recall his name.

    I am writing this because it may be helpful to you in the future to speak to Mr. Hamamoto, and also, Mr. Segal, in the event you need council to represent your rights. As I see it, this may be what is necessary to stop this kind of harassment. It seems to me that the ‘injured’ party is the victimizer. You may wish to contact John B to be interviewed, if you have not already.

    The best armor is knowledge, and truth will prevail.

    Sincerely,

    Karen G.

    • This treatment of “heretics” is not new or unusual. In the science field, anyone who PROVES that Einstein was wrong is vilified beyond measure, for example. Same goes for other scientists’ theories, postulates, “laws”, and principles. When new evidence comes to light, the discoverer is variously ignored, vilified, or even killed (remember all those biologists killed a few years back? There were twenty-something of them.) In the medical field, the same thing happens. Anyone who discovers a fact which contravenes “accepted” medical “fact” is vilified by the same methods. Case in point, Dr. Cathcart who cured 60 cases of polio with nothing more than mega doses of Vitamin C. Or Professor Bechamp, who showed that Pasteur and the “Germ Theory” of disease was a sham. Same goes for economists who point out that the present money system was doomed to failure from the beginning. On and on and on. We have always lived at the mercy of a criminal organization.

      People who set themselves to beLIEving in the social media of the time (all throughout history), are doomed to be led by the nose, and to one extent or another, enslaved. That’s just the way it is.

    I do not agree with you on the general makeup of our citizenry (‘decent’, ‘good hearted’?). A person cannot be misinformed (not at the level of today’s average ‘citizen’) and still be decent and good hearted. Instead one is a tool, a replicate and a device of that (evil) which so blatantly misinforms.

    Additionally, but along the same lines: We already have both tyranny (in the form of technocracy) and enormous losses of freedom (again in the form of widespread technocracy). These are major gaffes and flaws in your prepared and otherwise, good statement.
