Destruction of Evidence: Sandy Hook Elementary School being torn down in 2013.Mert Melfa Media

On April 22, 2015 Wolfgang Halbig traveled to Connecticut to meet with his attorney Kay Wilson and confront Newtown and Connecticut officials withholding information pertinent to Halbig’s numerous public records requests. As MHB readers are aware, this hearing, which was to have taken place on March 31, was abruptly postponed. Word has it that Governor Malloy also confronted Halbig during his visit and adamantly denied any foreknowledge of the Sandy Hook massacre event.

  1. James – Thanks for posting this, but it’s a 4-hour and 20-minute video! It would be nice if someone has the time to watch it and then pass along the key spots of interest to Sandy Hook research people.

    Thanks Michael

  2. I was really looking forward to this James. The quality is so poor, it’s pretty hard to sit through. A transcript would help. Wondering what happened to the quality?

    1. WH should prepare, with the help of his attorney, a summary of the proceeding and the outcome.

      I only listened to a few minutes but I heard a bit of the discussion of WH’s request for “signed work orders.” Seems unsigned work orders were given to WH one day before this hearing, though he has been formally requesting these documents since February of 2013. A male voice in the room said that this [incomplete] set of the requested [but unsigned] work orders show a “completion date” stamped on them, indicating the date the work was completed, “speak for themself.”

      The hocus pocus ensues and piles on early in the meeting. I assume it only goes down from there.

  3. Maybe if there was a transcript of the most salient moments, it would help. I have no idea what really happened at this meeting

  4. I suppose it goes without saying, we need to hear Wolf’s take on this FOIA hearing ASAP. I hope you can get him on right away. We are dying to hear what really happened

  5. State and Feds have unlimited money to spend on “defense” of this FOIA request. I can see this action taking years and settlement will not be guaranteed. Lots of very fat cats are defending this SH event, right to the very top. That’s what Wolf is up against.
    And, imagine. This is a FOIA request, it has to do with freedoms and openness…..The judicial system is on trial and we know how those things go, don’t we?

  6. lol, a four hour video of a stone wall, how entertaining! But seriously… at least there is audio of people talking.

    I immediately noticed (within the first few minutes) the distinctive “pop” sound of a chatango.com (or other) chat session in progress during this hearing. Who was chatting with whom, and is there a transcription of this conversation as well? Depending on who is chatting, this conversation might be very interesting.

    Also, was there a court reporter/transcriptionist working during this hearing? Such a record would be much clearer than the audio of this recording, and much more complete. If WH could provide this, we could analyze the details of this hearing much more accurately. (if that is what we should be doing).

    I’ve downloaded this video to play with VLC in an attempt to hear the audio more clearly.

    1. I was in the chat session. Most of us were unable to hear and trying to rely on the very few who could hear, or to connect to FPRN radio, which was supposed to have a live feed, but was not connecting. It was frustrating. We all noted the tension in the room, and were impressed with Wilson’s demeanor – not intimidated! Of course, the chat was trolled by a shill who constantly made reference to Habig’s size, and tried to derail the chat with accusation that Wolf was a con and just in it for the money.

  7. The vipers have returned to their den while trusting their comfort zone is still intact. No one is going to jail. All we can hope for is more people taking notice of the deceit that surrounds them. Thank you Wolfgang Halbig.

    Maureen Crowley was present at the FOIA hearing. She writes on her twitter account:

    “was at FOIA meeting with Wolfgang Halbig. Monte Frank’s hand was shaking like mad. dopey sh “we choose love” bracelet. gag.”

    “even the FOIA principle attorney at yesterday’s meeting in Hartford, shook her head in disgust at the deceit and buffoonery of NEWTOWN”

    1. Anne,
      You quoted Maureen Crowley saying “was at FOIA meeting with Wolfgang Halbig. Monte Frank’s hand was shaking like mad. dopey sh “we choose love” bracelet. gag.”

      Is there anyway to tell me what the Video time was when Franks hands was a shaking?

      4 hours is long to try and find this.

      Also, If there were 654 students there that day there should have been at least 25 Teachers alone not counting Administrators/Maintenance/Others present. Assuming each class was at maximum capacity at 25-30 Students per classroom.

      Where were all of them? Did they all run through the woods to escape?

      I never saw them at the Firehouse nor do I recall seeing any of them interviewed by the MSM that day.

      Why hasn’t Rick Thorne ever been interviewed or any mention of him declining to be interviewed?

      CBS,ABC,NBC and CNN would pay him BIG bucks for his testimony. But they don’t seem to care about the Best eyewitness. Hmmmm

      Either his check from Obama and Holder was sufficient or he got scared that day and told his handlers “this is where I jump off”, “Too many people are asking questions and I’m a real person not a professionally trained actor like Robby Parker and the Parents you hired”

      Who Knows.

      But I would love to know the time in the video where Monte Franks hand is shaking.

      Thanks

      1. I watched the 2 hours + video. Monte Frank and his hands were not in view all the time, but Maureen Crowley was sitting right there and whatever took place she saw with her own eyes. I saw Frank sporting the green SH bracelet. Recommend taking 2 hours off and watch how Wolfgang and his attorney kept their cool. Even the state’s attorney, all decked out in red, became frustrated in the end with Frank and company – and rightfully so.

        During the FOIA hearing Wolfgang Halbig’s attorney referred to a letter by Mrs. Hochsprung sent out to parents in the fall of 2012 about implementing a new security system at SHES. Wolfgang’s attorney, Ms. Wilson, asked the man representing Newtown schools’ maintenance dept. if such a system had been installed. The man did not know. Upon further questioning he said the last time a security system was installed at SHES was in 2007.

        Mrs. Hochsprung’s letter was printed in the Hartford Courant, see below. The FOIA Commission leader asked to see the letter. Ms. Wilson could not produce it since the only reference to such a letter came from the Courant and another “news” outlet. That is when the commission leader said that everything in the media is hearsay and not proof of anything.
        So there is no tangible proof of this letter – or anything else the media reports on according to the commission leader – including the Sandy Hook incident on 12/14/12 we have to assume.

        Principal Outlined New Security Procedures At Sandy Hook Elementary School
        December 14, 2012
        The “frequently asked questions” section of the Sandy Hook Elementary School website features a question: “Please explain the security system at SHA. Click here to view the security letter sent to Sandy Hook families this year.” The letter said:
        Dear Members of our Sandy Hook Family,
        Our district will be implementing a security system in all elementary schools as part of our ongoing efforts to ensure student safety. As usual, exterior doors will be locked during the day. Every visitor will be required to ring the doorbell at the front entrance and the office staff will use a visual monitoring system to allow entry. Visitors will still be required to report directly to the office and sign in. If our office staff does not recognize you, you will be required to show identification with a picture id. Please understand that with nearly 700 students and over 1,000 parents representing 500 SHS families, most parents will be asked to show identification.

        Doors will be locked at approximately 9:30 a.m. Any student arriving after that time must be walked into the building and signed in at the office. Before that time our regular drop-off procedures will be in place. I encourage all parents to have their children come to school and return home on the bus and to remain in school for the entire school day. The beginning and ending of our school day are also important instructional times and therefore we want all our students to reap the benefits of full participation in our program.
        We need your help and cooperation for our system to work effectively. Our office staff is handling multiple tasks. Though they will work diligently to help you into the building as quickly as possible, there may be a short delay until someone can view you on the handset and allow you to come in electronically. There are times during the day when office personnel are on the telephone, addressing student concerns, or in the copy room; there are other times when only one person is in the front office. Please help our staff by identifying yourself and provide your child’s name.
        Keep in mind we will be following our district guidelines which may need revision once we test the system.
        Please know your involvement continues to be critical to our school’s effectiveness and your child’s success. We continue to encourage and value your presence in our classrooms and are counting on your cooperation with the implementation of this safety initiative.
        Sincerely,
        Mrs. Hochsprung

        1. Anne, that’s a good analysis. Halbig’s attorney did a good job. She has the patience of Job. I wish he would have stopped talking to her on mic. It was distracting.

          What Halbig, and others, seem to lose sight of is that it was merely a FOIA hearing. The question is, did they get what they asked for and, if not, why?

          Once this is complete they will issue a report. He may get more documents, he may not. Beyond that, nothing will happen other than it may be necessary to challenge the report.

          His lawyer clearly gets it. It may be dramatic when they are caught lying, but I don’t think that will influence their report. Any other action he may take based on documents is up to him but, they are unlikely to supply any useful ammunition.

          I mentioned before how important it is to word requests correctly. His current lawyer would do a good job. I’m not so sure about the previous one. As creepy as Frank is, he was correct that it isn’t their job to interpret what he wants.

          Lying or not, how are you going to argue with “we don’t always cut work orders”? He says he doesn’t, you say he does? In a different proceeding they could possibly get a subpoena. Then they could march in there and seize the records.

          On that subject, some of her witnesses are in contempt. Now she will have to determine how to enforce her subpoenas. Their lying in this proceeding will not help them. It may be useful in a later action if they can get it in.

          I’m impressed with his lawyer. She presented her case admirably, avoided emotion and was unflappable. It was an amazing performance to watch the head of maintenance have to look at Frank to answer her questions.

          Some of the rulings (as well as the process) were bizarre. In some ways Frank was not as clever as he no doubt thinks he is. He could have simply stated that they have everything and that’s that.

          Psychologically, if they are saying that it happened just as described, they would add much more credence to their tale to take the position that its an open book. “We have nothing to hide”. By fighting to not provide documents they are looking more and more culpable.

          I don’t know what his ultimate plan is for this. He is not going to get any admissions. He will not get a ruling on the truthfulness of anything in a board hearing. It’s fun to watch them squirm, I’ll give you that. Keyhoe’s head looked like a human thermometer. I thought his head was going to explode.

          I suppose, ultimately, that the message is “we don’t believe you”, and they got that loud and clear.

        2. According to the New Head of ALL the Lawyers in Connecticut, Monty Frankfurters, Dawn Hochsprung’s letter is just “hearsay” and means Nothing.

          ?

        3. The Courant has been busted – time to follow up with legal action.

          The article in the Courant was released the day of the incident, but listed no byline. Expert witness testimony in the FOIA court has just determined the letter is completely false. (Certain facts within the letter were obviously wrong – the student enrollment was off by approximately 250. Also, the thing is signed by “Mrs. Hochsprung.”
          Odd.)

          2007 for the actual system makes sense, because the school building was in a state of heavy decay in 2012, It appears to have been used for storage, and parts of it leased out to Education Connection.

          Another point made by the witness from the school maintenance department, was that the reports of PCB levels, asbestos levels, and lead paint were not part of the annual inspection, but instead, only performed for construction and demolition studies.

          Sandy Hook was already being torn down. They had CBYD – Call before you dig warnings painted on the concrete. Construction dumpsters in the lot. They replaced broken windows and doors with plate glass instead of safety glass. And they filled the boilers with water from a hose, which can be seen in the police video which was supposedly taken the following day.

        4. We look at the performance of our schools coast to coast and we realize our system produces students who rank around #40 in the world. We find valedictorians in high schools going to esteemed schools and needing remedial math and English. And then we watch a film, a marvelous film, of the FOIA proceeding of the past week and we see exactly how and why our schools are failing. They are a means to help destroy this nation, plain and simple. There are no good intentions. It’s a business, a nasty game. We pay, who plays?

        5. Sandy, not to defend Frank, but the hearing was a part of the FOIA process. He is saying that he has no documents relevant to the security system installation. That may or may not be true. The newspaper article “implies” that there would be documents. He is saying that there are no documents.

          It has been established that the media can lie to us. It isn’t illegal. Under the circumstances we would be wise not to believe the media. If he continues to pursue this any lying done on Newtown’s part is likely to be revealed in a later process.

          In this FOIA process they get to present their case, Newtown gets to respond, and, apparently they get to request a change to their response. We’ve all studied the characters and plot associated with this drill.

          At this point all we know is that there was an article in the newspaper. She (or someone else), could have placed that. It doesn’t, in itself, mean anything was actually done at the school (if the school was open).

          If either of these two things were fabrications, that would present a potential problem in that common sense would dictate that there would be records of such an installation. If this gets out of their control a judge could order a records search. For now all they have to do is stonewall and claim that no records exist.

          I’m reasonably certain that this is making them squirm. At present all it is doing is making them look suspicious and silly. Their report to Wolfgang will either contain additional documents or they will continue to claim that they either do not have them or claim an exemption.

          At that point it will be up to Wolfgang to decide how to pursue further options. Depositions would be useful but they are not an option in this type of proceeding. We should remember that it may be a true statement that certain records do not exist. If you create a hoax you don’t necessarily create a paper trail to go with it.

        6. Looking for the hearsay letter from Mrs. Hochsprung I encountered several “oops, page not found”. Here is one pdf file found at cdn.com/files. CDN may stand for Content Delivery Network.

          http://3xa3sn2xtr6117bb6o2m6zwf8ea.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/files/2013/01/Dear-Members-of-our-Sandy-Hook-Family.pdf

          The letter has no letter head, no date and any school principle worth his or her salt would type full name with title and then sign it. The original letter would have been sent out to the parents of all 700? students of SHES. In defense of The Town of Newtown, their legal counsel Monte Frank should have no problem producing the original letter.

          The Hartford Courant has been a major player in this hoax all along.

        7. Monte Frank and his assistant spent a lot of time covering their faces with their hands. Wonder if they were ready to burst out laughing or were they trying to cover up their deception?

        8. An, that’s a good find. It isn’t signed, has no letterhead – as you pointed out- and anyone could have written it and typed the name “Hochsprung”. If it was in their possession I don’t see why they couldn’t produce it.

          Frank and crony look the way they do because they know they’ve got this “in the bag”. They are not getting a decision at the end of the hearing and it will take them a while to issue a report. The report will no doubt say what they want it to say.

          My understanding is that there will then be an opportunity to challenge the report. I don’t know who presides over that process. I would imagine that, after the challenge, all that would be left is a suit claiming that they failed to abide by the FOIA regulations.

          The town will, no doubt, cite the record of this proceeding as proof that they received a fair hearing. At that point they may get to discovery. Of course they will say that they have all the releasable documents. They should be able to depose witnesses, however.

          As Musings pointed out, I do not understand how the hearing chair did not have copies of the relevant documents in question. I think his attorney did a nice job of keeping her cool. She got it in the record and that’s about all she could hope to do.

          One of the problems with these types of proceedings is that they are not trials. Things are loose. It was hard for me to follow the presider’s decisions. In this case he will get to make recommendations for the report. Whatever it says they’ll sign off on it.

          I still think that Frank played is cards stupidly. Instead of acting contemptuous and looking for excuses why he didn’t produce the documents, he would have appeared more believable if he’d simply said that no releasable documents exist. In other words, “we gave you everything you asked for”.

          Another problem with this sort of approach is that, if they say it doesn’t exist, how are you going to “prove” that it does? It may even be true that they don’t exist because the school wasn’t open. They will say it was because they were lax with their records.

          Sometimes you can get a judge to issue a subpoena for the records. It won’t happen in this proceeding, if ever. Obviously, if there really aren’t any records it would do no good to find that. It might add more credence to the evidence, but there is always another explanation.

          We’ll see where this goes. I would like to see records of payments for utilities, meals, etc.. So far, they’ll just say “we’re bad housekeepers” and let it go at that.

  8. i loved watching monte frank and newtown police chief Kehoe squirming about when examined on the medium priority “unwanted persons” call for service log that was put out at after receiving the first 911 call of the incident reporting shots fired. Chief Kehoe denying, and quite assuredly lying, of communication with state trooper 1 helicopter and the newtown police department that day.

    Halbig did what he said he would do and got a couple to raise their right hand, and quite undeniably lied under oath. Can’t wait for more. There’s multiple witnesses still yet to be examined.

      1. Thank you Charles – much better quality! Dr. Tracy you should replace the version you posted with this one before it gets lost in the comments.

        The fact that they provided more than one hundred pages of work orders and one of the officer’s video cams footage the day before this second hearing implies the FOI court might have some pull. THE FOI lawyer and Judge appear to be real people who just might care!

        There were Issues with the work orders – they were computer generated with no responsible parties listed as doing or approving the actual work. The lawyer had previously asked for $22.50 to provide the copies, @ 50 cents per page that would of been 45 pages, there were over 100. There were no work orders found for the actual work needed as documented in the crime scene photos. The response was not all work generates an order, mold & mildew are just routine maintenance – yah right.

        The witnesses were squirming and looking to the town’s lawyer to call for objections as they did not want to answer

        1. i have read a comment from the uploader, as quoted
          “I have received communication of concerns about Wolfgang and his attorney whispering that shouldn’t have been included in the video…. It appears to some a breach of attorney/client privilege. I don’t know if this is true as I am not an attorney; however, to make folks happy, I pulled the video and a new video is in production without the Wolfgang whispering.”

    1. Here was an opportunity for Newtown to squash the naysayers. Instead, Monte Frank clearly showed that he is doing all he can to hide the truth.

      Citing irrelevance in most of his objections, Mr. Frank makes the viewer truly wonder “what is relevant”?

      What are you trying to hide?

      Thanks for the post moose.

  9. I listened to the entire hearing on Radio and it was pretty clear minus the occasional audio drop outs at critical times of testimony.

    This is inaudible and the video is poor.

    I heard Infowars had a camera crew there.

  10. It’s pretty common these days to use voice recognition software to prepare the transcript. Let’s hope that the sound quality of the mics reading the testimony is better than that of the video.

    I find a lot of errors with voice recognition-generated transcripts. I can’t tell if there is a recorder there. They usually ask for corrections if they think it isn’t accurately transcribing the testimony.

    We would get much more from a reading of the transcript than the video, although, it is good to use both.

  11. I was dumbstruck while reading the Sleuth Journal and it said that Major William Podgorski, allegedly a sudden death victim, was really a DHS operative and NOT a Conn. State Trooper! He did not die suddenly, he was whisked away to another assignment before the hot and heavy questions started bombarding him. If he was DHS, this means federal complicity, something we’ve long suspected.
    Absolutely boggling!

  12. I listened live on Friday, and revisited the FOIA hearing via the clear version now posted to Youtube. Some of my observations:

    Halbig and Wilson worked as a team – she took the appropriate lead, and kept him in check, and he offered regular guidance that she used at the appropriate times.

    Llodra never showed! Neither did head Janitor Anzelotti(sp?) Several witnesses who were subpoenaed and summoned did not appear. Attorney Wilson is now seeking to remedy this and make compulsory their testimony at the follow-up hearing yet to be scheduled.

    Monte Frank was clearly tense and duplicitous – forcing Wolf to respond to overly-narrow questions regarding irrelevant documents that Frank had previously sent to Wolf, along with a bill for 19 bucks. Frank attempted to imply that Wolf could have paid an additional 22 dollars and received all the other FOIA requested documents. Wolf finally managed to get it into his response that he was not about to continue paying for garbage. Although his initial objections were auto-sustained, as the hearing progressed, they were at times over-ruled. The photographs of the condition of the school were used to question whether their were any documents and work-orders on file. They were very powerful, and I believe made a big impression on Ms. Brown of the FOIA court.

    Frank objected to logical questions by Wilson at every turn, and was caught in several untrue assertions.

    Just one day prior to the hearing, Halbig was given school work orders to review. Halbig and Wilson noted that they weren’t signed at all.

    Also, on the previous day, Halbig went to the police station to view the dashcam videos. Attorney Wilson asked Police Chief Kehoe if they customarily list time/date/officer ID on the video. Kehoe responded “Yes.” She questioned him as to why there was no such info on the video viewed by Halbig. Kehoe struggled and made up an excuse about Wolf seeing copies, and that the info was not on the copies. Wilson asked him how this could simply fall off the copies! He then denied that the videos lacked the date/time/trooper stamps.

    Kehoe stated that there was no communication between he Trooper One Helicopter overhead, and the Newtown police, despite the helicopter log stating that it was deployed to assist the police in a manhunt.

    Kehoe seemed unfamiliar with the format and verbiage of his own police report, and could not explain why a school shooting was listed as “unwanted person” and set at a “medium priority.”

    The Buildings Superintendent testified that he was unaware of any requirement that schools have to have an annual inspection. He went on to say that they do annual inspections every August. He was caught in multiple moments of silence, confusion, and constantly looked to Monte Frank for answers.

    Wolf had them scared to death.

    1. One can only hope this FOIA commission is not hopelessly corrupt. The Commissioner played an interesting part as an authority who clearly favored Frank regarding objections. Remember state’s attorney Sedensky who redacted nearly 7000 pages of testimony and other information and then produced a 50 page bolus of useless verbiage? This state has a LOT to hide and I found it most interesting that Gov. Malloy, one of our more hated governors over the last 150 years, stating that he didn’t know about anything prior to the event. He was told “something could happen regarding school safety” in the future, but he didn’t know a thing!! By none other than the esteemed Eric Holder, no less…..
      Frank showed that when the papers mouth the typical MSM line, it’s absolutely the truth. When the papers print things against the state line, well, that’s a different story. Kay Wilson has a tremendous opportunity to open this can of worms up to the light of day, but remember she was fearful just prior to the FOIA session and was going to drop out for fear of her life and her family’s.
      MHB has really done some terrific work and broadcasted some tremendous interviews. It’s been a great rock for us all and informative and enjoyable, to say the least. Onward, James.

      1. That said, I hope we don’t all get knocked down in the street and asked, “what’s the frequency, Kenneth”?

  13. It’s all about stalling tactics on their part now.. and there has go to be a way to push this along …. there is a way, there is always away. I’ve sent wofgang money but I can’t do it now??……
    How could it be that we can prove they tampered with the video evidence, it’s obvious,but how could we PROVE it????
    There needs to be some patriotic attorney’s for san hook truth… out there. God I love the truth… the empirical evidence, the real deal….

  14. Alright… thank you, charles for posting the clear video/audio.

    My Revelation is that each and every “media” statement is considered “hearsay” by the opposing attorniey. I wonder why that is? Back in the day,the media’s statements were considered “gospel” Now, you have to assume everything they say is a lie!

    1. Right On THX.

      Monty Frank tells the world ALL MSM is Bullsh$t and cannot be used in a court of Law.

      Wow!

      I bet his Luciferian Handlers are Not Happy….Anderson Cooper aka Mr. Vanderbilt to the rescue.

  15. I’d like to point out that the counsel to the commission, atty, Tracy/Tracey brown pointed out, during review of the photograph of the front entrance overhang, that there was mold on the wood before atty. Wilson even mentioned it.

    now THAT was hilarious

    1. Yes, I was impressed by her behavior – she did a good job. I was surprised that the witnesses were not better prepared, since Mr. Halbig’s argument was clearly spelled out in the videos available on YouTube months ago.

      1. her facial expressions and body language were quite telling: she wasnt buying it either.

        she even had to cover her mouth when the custodial witness said he said that it was only water damage and that he did not put in a work order for it to be fixed.

        unfortunately, i have my doubts she will be at the next hearing.

  16. How much respect can you have for a process that allows personnel that receive a subpoena to just blow off the hearing ? Monte Frank just goes for a bike ride that was planned in advance for months and notifies the court a week in advance that he had urgent business ? Other town witnesses just do not show up after being served ? If they can snub the law without repercussions do you really expect a fair and just outcome on any ruling ?

    I give Wolf tremendous credit for his efforts, he is the only one of prominence sticking his neck out there and bringing attention to this matter. Although I have my disagreements with some of his investigative priorities and assessments he definitely deserves his due. And I don’t want to hear any complaints that his motivation is profit because no amount of money is worth the flak he is receiving for doing this. And in fact there does not appear to be very much money going his way anyway.

    At the very least he will embarrass the town leaders for allowing children in such a filthy school.

    I think they should make large cardboard blow up pictures of the police laughing it up in the parking lot, Shannon Hicks serving refreshments at the back of the fire house and picking up a pizza delivery. Ask Monte Frank if this looks like the scene of a massacre of children.

    http://sandyhookjustice.com/files/99424815.pdf

    1. Let me also interject that the fact that Wolf was provided documents just one day prior to the hearing, after months and months of waiting, is a clear demonstration of BAD FAITH, on the part of Newtown and their representatives.

      1. The BAD Faith is also demonstrated by the non appearances of witnesses as well as Monte Frank’s bike ride postponement at the last minute.

        1. We need to spread this photograph of Monte Frank far and wide.  He has shamed himself unmercifully and we should do likewise to him. Wolfgang Halbig speaks in detail about some of the work/repairs that needed to be done on the Sandy Hook Elementary School building in this video.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1sOI4WfEFY

          Wake Up To The Truth # 34 Sandy Hook Update, Exclusive with Wolfgang Halbig https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGFKm

          Here is the Article with the pictures posted from this video http://www.webookyourshow.com/blog/20… – Category – People & Blogs – License – Standard YouTube License All Comments (175)  ______________________ I post this YouTube video to explain to some extent what makes the presentation of some of the “work orders” to WH and his attorney on the day before the hearing highly irregular in every possible way. The “work orders” provided by the Ct. FOIA Commission are not true and correct copies of properly and fully executived work order documents.  The signature and clearly typed name and department of the person requesting work to be done must be on the document for it to be a true “work order.”  I also think that the simple stamping of a date on this form is sufficient “speaks for itself” evidence that the work had been done and when it had been done.  I believe that the name and probably signature of the person who is verifying, and is duly authorized to do so,  that the work had been done must be on a properly executed and completed “work order.”  I would also opine that there would need to be on a properly executed and completed “work order” form a brief summary of exactly what work was performed and the status or condition of the work site or target of repair upon work completion.  All of these characteristics of a true and correct copy of a properly and full executed work order and absent, so there were no “work orders” at all, notwithstanding the improper and untimely method of conveyance of the non-work orders to Wolfgand Halbig. I can tell you from various kinds of personal experience that FOIA document requests must be tediously, skillfully, and strategically worded by a specialized attorney in order to pass or get through the experienced and vigorous screening of these requests by “open records” agency attorneys whose stock and trade is routinely denying these requests.  Those written and verbal (telephoned) requests for documents personally by Wolfgang Halbig are easily disqualified and ignored by these crafty attorneys.  But some of WH’s requests were properly prepared by WH’s attorneys and those are not so easily discounted. What most likely happened is that the “gang” at the Connecticut Freedom of Information Commission viewed some of the videos such as the one I posted a link to above and decided which items indicated by WH in the video to be sorely in need of repair deserved or warranted a “back engineered”, trumped up, fake-worded, fake and non-work request form.  They also decided which items in the video an easy excuse could be given for there being no “work request.” 

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

        2. Several misspellings in my last comment but did want to correct one error. Change “I also think that the simple stamping of a date on thisform is sufficient “speaks for itself” To “I also think that the simple stamping of a date on thisform is INSUFFICIENT “speaks for itself”  “and the light shines on in the darkness and darkness could not overcome it.”John 1:5 

    2. I just viewed the hearing from a different camera perspective, and was shocked to see some of the subpoenaed witnesses, who were not called, were sitting in the hearing room. They must have been the ones “excused” from testifying by Monte Frank.

      Really? How is it legal for opposing council to excuse the witnesses called for by the plaintiff, especially when they are present and able to be examined?

    1. AbleChild has been trying to do that since 2012.
      The response to AbleChild speaks volumes.
      But their issue is that if anything at all is responsible (they don’t want to risk funding cuts so they are sticking to the official story. Through many in the organization do not buy it) it is the over medicating (big pharma) of children and not guns.

      1. Why are children being medicated at all?! Any decent audiologist in a Big Pharma-controlled area will tell you that the kids are the ones most impacted by these drugs as their brains are still forming. Many are coming down with lifelong side effects, like auditory processing disorders which can be debilitating.

        These psy ops involve ‘mental illnesses’ that are never named or defined. I will have to watch more of AbleChild’s video, but I’m not at all surprised to hear the outcome. There never was an Adam Lanza so there isn’t any ‘disease’ to examine.

        Another thing to consider in this takeover by the state of forced medicating is that the insurance companies started refusing to pay for all these psych medications a few years ago, so the profit margin for Big Pharma has dropped considerably. Now the state is going to force the taxpayers to foot the bill for their own chemical lobotomization. There was just so long that a for-profit business like insurance could carry the chronic mass-pathologization of the healthy.

        I’d really like to know how the mechanics of that shift in posture went down. Did the insurance companies just call out these ‘diagnoses’ of everyone, especially children, as without medical proof? I’d assume the pharmaceutical companies and ‘doctors,’ et al, want to keep a lid on the process. Their racket simply cannot weather any questioning of its ‘science.’

    2. “in spring of 2013, Ablechild sued the state to obtain Adam Lanza’s medical/mental health and toxicology records. The state denied Ablechild’s request based on an arbitrary ruling that the non-profit was not a stakeholder.”

      Here is the video of that hearing

      http://ct-n.com/ctnplayer.asp?odID=9336

  17. I just realized that the clearer video/audio is half as long as the original four hour video. Did I miss half of the proceedings?

    1. The original video had an additional two hours, approximately, of discussion between onlookers to the hearing about what they had just witnessed. You did not miss any of the actual proceedings if you watched just the newer version that was posted on memoryholeblog.

      And many thanks, again, to Dr. Tracy for giving everyone an opportunity to review these proceedings and comment on them.

  18. The FOIA hearing video by Mert Melfa that was made private was due to his thoughts that the whispering between Wolfgang and his atty. was audible and may be ‘privileged’. He is editing those parts and will re post. BTW there is also a video by Melfa of a press conference with Wolfgang in the hallway after the hearing. You tube>Wolfgang Halbig press conference…

  19. Attorney Kay Wilson stated her intent to seek remedy and make compulsory the appearances of those witnesses, such as Pat Llodra, who ignored a judges served subpoena.

    Apparently, there are consequences. The term “subpoena” means: “under penalty.” Here is a legal answer for ignoring a subpoena:

    Facts about Show Cause

    A lawyer may request a show cause hearing if a party ignores a deposition subpoena. The court then commands the non-compliant party to appear before a judge to show good cause for his failure to appear. Good cause is a difficult standard to prove. Excuses such as work, minor illness, forgetfulness, travel, or ignorance of the law do not qualify as good cause. An unexpected emergency, such as a serious auto accident on the way to the deposition, would be an example of good cause. A party who fails to show good cause can be ordered to pay the costs and attorneys fees incurred by the hearing. The party may also be re-ordered to appear for the deposition. The judge also has the power to hold the non-compliant party in contempt of court and order incarceration and fines.

    1. How is he able to afford an attorney’s services? I would think a lawyer who chose to represent Halbig would face possible repercussions from the system. But maybe I’m too paranoid.

      1. Oh, yes, you hit the nail on the head. Any attorney representing a potential “enemy of the state” could be in dire straits following participation in such a case, more so if he/she manages to make too many points. Kay Wilson took the case after initially dropping out. Should she make the state look too bad, watch for Wilson to possibly cut bait. This is a common story in politics. Make a certain individual or agency look bad and you could be facing a rehash of the Vince Foster case, with you playing the part of Vince Foster. Recall the vast number of people who had knowledge of the Bill Clinton participation in events emanating from Mena, Arkansas airport. Remember? Around 75 people bit the dust when they were identified as troublesome to the Clintons and other compadre’s. It could get very dangerous for Halbig and his attorney.

      2. Those are very good observations. You are not paranoid at all feeling that Wolf’s attorney could face various repercussions from her participation. These actions most likely would not emanate from Connecticut, but the federal level. Eric Holder made an incredibly bizarre statement how he righted all the wrongs in the judicial system during his term there and clearly this applies to his actions connected with SH. How we go from point A to point B with this conglomeration of information is beyond me. I believe Connecticut is one of the very, very few places nationwide that will determine if democracy or a semblance of same will ever exist in this nation again. We’ve been amply recognized as being incredibly corrupt here in my home state and Malloy is but a part of the spider web woven to obstruct matters. We are the modern day Minute Men, we are either going to fight off this tyrannical government or we are going to face dire consequences. The country is going down the vortex rapidly, if TPP passes another nail will be added to our coffin. To think citizens buy into this incredibly corrupt Democratic ruse is way, way beyond the pale. Then again, the Republicans are worthy of no commendations from their pathetic defense of this nation. The 2 party system is rotten to the core, our votes mean nothing.

        We are going to fight them on the beaches, in the ocean and up in the sky. Who would have thought we’d be the last line of defense? How far are we from our death throes? We are the laughingstock of the entire world. Try that on for size…..

    1. Maybe (after 2.5 years of stalling) the Regime decided to forge 26 Death Certificates after all. Otherwise, skeptics won’t stop hounding them. They forged Hussein’s birth certificate, so why not a handful of Death Certificates for fictional people?

      1. Is it not crystal clear that the perps are reacting to all the investigations being done? Like, how many chances do the perps get to explain nearly 7000 pages of redacted/removed information from the state files? Should the FOIA request fail by Halbig, where do we go next? When do the rats start jumping off the ship? When does Malloy “fess up? They are in up to their necks. I find it amazing that the town of Newtown is still mum on the question “what happened in Sandy Hook”? This has got to be an incredible bombshell when it does finally explode.

  20. Monte Frank’s job was to stall, divert, and obstruct Halbig and his attorney. Looking at the job he did, agreeing that the future implications of his performance are unknown at this time, he was just doing his job and Newtown gave him a signed contract that he do just that. We figured him out very rapidly, didn’t we? But, for now, he dodged a bullet or two and now the ball is in Wolf’s court. Where does Wolf go from here? I don’t doubt Frank scored a point or two. This battle is supported both by Newtown and the state and federal governments, count on it. This is no local battle with Newtown on the defensive, it’s the people behind this event in the first place. And that means the Feds……

  21. http://winteractionables.com/?p=20371

    This is a good synopsis of the events from Wolf. Mind blowing stuff. More people might listen to the whole thing if they could do sound leveling between Wolf and his interviewer. The Governor weighing in with a denial of reality is Earth shaking, He denied what the whole World saw, his admission of advanced warning on the massacre. It was a huge surprise the Governor came out to see Wolf at all. How is this denial not going to haunt the Governor the rest of his life?… More so than the admission of advanced warning has already. The Connecticut Bar Association must have lawyers in it’s ranks that despise what Monte Frank has done to obstruct FOIA. I bet it’s more than anyone realizes. It’s not a huge leap to consider that Sandy Hook is just the tip of iceberg on obstruction of justice in Connecticut

    1. Thank you the link to this great summary of Wolfgang’s hearing.

      Suggest everyone read it.

      We are being educated and awakened to truth by Wolfgang Halbig’s experience with the Connecticut FOIA Commission.

      Romans 8:28

    1. There will be no review, Newtown is waiting on the state troopers who have never even interviewed participants. Of course this was not written into the script, the drill was declared over.

      The parents should be suing the police department and state troopers for not calling in EMTs and not reviewing what went wrong instead of who manufactured the alleged bullets!

  22. At minute 9:42 where the Commissioner (magistrate) of the hearing claims to lack FOIA request copies (having first denied there are any requests of the date the attorney gave as she attempted to enter the FOIA requests into evidence; the absence of relevant documents in the hands of the hearing officer is a red flag, but it will probably be spun as incompetence of Halbig’s attorney if she is not careful; it is a delaying tactic for sure). I notice the respondent attorney perks up for a moment – apparently he understands there is something he has won – and it becomes apparent that all this time he has been sitting with his chin in his hand as though asleep, waiting for that cue. Why would someone be dozing off in a hearing like that unless he thought “hide the ball” was scheduled and he had the Commissioner in his pocket? I have seen behavior like that before where there is probable collusion between insiders (think Boston courts and clergy abuse where the complainant is a parent, for instance, and the case file is lost long enough to prevent its being seen by the parent’s side until they are before a judge). I have not watched this for long, but these preliminary matters indicate a fix being in. An attorney in this situation had better keep very cool, and simply aim for getting everything on the record, rather than for getting a fair outcome at the end.

    1. i figured it was just nevousness and him getting flustered about the talking points of Halbig and atty Wilson. he especially displayed that body language while the witnesses were beig examined; resting his forehead on his hand a lot and the resting his chin on his hand.
      but i suppose you are right also, the commissioner would most likely be playing favorites for the most part. but the body laguage of Franke seemed to be quite nervous and agitated.
      not even to mention the body language of the witnesses. custodial witness visibly shaking and/or rocking back and forth. kehoe slouching and looking towards his feet a lot. and his stalling after being questioned just made it seem like he was begging for Frank to come up with some miracle objection.

      ive watched a few times and really enjoy finding bits of telling body language of Franks, the witnesses and the commission officials. and especially seeing Halbig giving the death stare to monte and the witnesses.

      1. I was there, saw monte frank’s hands shake, and towards the end saw the look of repulsion on the face of foia attorney stacie brown, as she actually shook her head at the two Newtown criminals.

  23. For what it’s worth:

    (1) I wish Ms. Wilson had established a foundation for her client’s requests, just to get it on the record (his background & credentials; why he started questioning the official narrative; what protocols he felt were not followed; the visit by FL detectives to his home; his blocked attempts to get his questions answered and why he had to resort to FOIA, etc.)? Monte Frank would have objected, of course, but he would have been overruled, as it would be relevant to establish Mr. Halbig’s motives for the requests. Maybe she’ll get a chance to do that at the follow-up hearing.

    (2) At one point (minute 5:45), Ms. Brown states that the Commission has no authority to enforce subpoenas. Yet it has the power to do so, and can apply for a court order to force compliance. Maybe this can also be done for the next hearing.
    http://www.ct.gov/foi/cwp/view.asp?a=4163&Q=488932
    (b) At any hearing, the commission or the presiding officer may subpoena witnesses and require the production of records, documents and other evidence pertinent to such inquiry. Any party may request that such process be issued. The request shall be in writing and contain the following: the name and address of each person upon whom such process is to be served; an adequate description of any records, documents and evidence sought to be produced; and a short explanation of the testimony or evidence to be offered at the hearing and its materiality to the subject thereof. It shall be the sole responsibility of the party requesting such process to cause it to be served in accordance with law.
    (c) If any person disobeys such process or, having appeared in obedience thereto, refuses to answer any pertinent question put to him by the commission or by the presiding officer or to produce any records, documents or evidence pursuant thereto, the commission may apply to the superior court for the judicial district of Hartford for an order requiring such person to comply with such subpoena or to testify as provided by section 1-21j of the general statutes.

    (3) Regarding the after-incident photos of the school premises: Why didn’t Mr. Faiello or Mr. Frank object and point to the school’s pristine condition in official photos of various events on the school’s online “scrapbook” for prior years:
    http://newtown.sandyhook.schooldesk.net/AboutUs/Scrapbook20112012/tabid/15581/Default.aspx
    …or on Dawn Hochsprung’s Twitter account for the fall of 2012?
    https://twitter.com/DHochsprung/media
    Were those photos planted and no one bothered to tell Mr. Faiello or Mr. Frank?

    Maybe they didn’t expect this level of scrutiny.

  24. How sad that Alex Teves’ parents (he was one of the Aurora victims) are put through so much excessive concern for victims of what’s mostly faked shootings. They started an organization ‘No Notoriety’ which seeks to limit the times outlets can name shooters, as their belief is that notoriety-seeking inspires copycat shooters:

    http://news.yahoo.com/parents-of-a-colorado-theater-shooting-victim-fear-another-massacre-043500512.html

    They could really use some information here. That said, there are copycats, I just don’t think very many.

    1. (Lawyer) “Monte Frank” seems like another blackmailed homosexual. CIA loves those, b/c they do whatever CIA wants. And there’s no way that guy’s parents named him “Monte Frank.” It’s like Emilie (EM-I-LIE) Parker.

    2. Does it not appear that Frank and his witnesses have some covert kind of “protection” afforded them by their controllers? Just like Gov. Malloy, Dr. Carver, the state police commander and others, these people are really abusing the interface with perjury, yet they seem very proud of their mendacity. This pride appears to me to come from the hidden hand that has promised them “pardons” should they run into a prosecutor on his game who nails ’em. I think this overall brouhaha with SH comes from the absolute TOP of the heap and you know of whom I speak. It’s accepted that Kehoe and the facilities manager are fibbing, but the ease with which they use these fibs is what is striking. Unless he’s unconscious, Kehoe realizes what he said to Wilson is less than dependable. Frank is an interesting character and he wasn’t chosen just because he’s a good lawyer, he was chosen because he’s Chosen. Should Wilson be threatened again, this house of cards will shatter, sad to say. Somebody knows the entire SH story, the entire Newtown story, how do we get at the truth?
      Karen’s observations are interesting, to say the least. Indeed, compromised participants could well be given protection from prosecutions,notably so if they were compromised for the right reasons.

  25. Yes it is nice to see these officials squirming in the videos and watch their faces turning red…..however I believe that most of them are simply following orders from above. They have to do what they are doing… If this hoax event had happened in Arizona then we might have been watching Arizona officials in the exact same situation protecting the real perpetrators and the ” system”. I think most Americans believe our justice system works reasonably well ….it just does not work well when it comes to covering up for hoax events or false flag operations……it never has throughout our history. Just look at JFK…why did they seal and lock away the most important documents until the year 2035?

    It is that belief in our justice system that makes me wonder how average Americans would view this video if they ever actually watched it. Would they sympathize with Halbig or the squirming attorneys? Would it cause an awakening with average Americans?
    Those that are awake already can watch this and see it for what it is but we know it was hoax already….but what about non hoax believers….would watching the above video help in their awakening?? or would they view it as frivolous?

    1. ” I think most Americans believe our justice system works reasonably well ….it just does not work well when it comes to covering up for hoax events or false flag operations…”

      No, it just does not work well when it comes to anything. Our justice system is and has been for a long time, at every level of the system, about Just-Us.

      I know that I tend to be, I guess, overly sensitive to what I perceive as injustice and dishonesty, but almost anyone working for any federal or state agency, no matter at what level of job, can see that is is all a bunch of baloney.

      The way the laws are made in the federal and state legislatures is simply a “pay to play” farce. Then regulations are written off of those fake laws. Then enforcement of those laws and regulations is oh so SELECTIVELY ENFORCED. Those complainants judged against in this system are often the brunt of a political vendetta or just a used entitiy to make it appear that justice is still operating in the system and this is usually on the un-moneyed little guy.

      Our system, of which the justice system is only a part, appears increasingly to be operating as a blackmail / bribery / extortion grid that is driving all.

      I care not about awakening people or who is or is not awake. I want justice that can only happen with truth.

  26. Do we know what the follow up from this hearing is? Did Wolf go back to Florida? There is never anything in the news about this- I’m guessing main stream media will never report…….

    1. In an interesting development, a Connecticut building inspector has come forward, and has volunteered to examine all work orders and inspections on school properties at both Monroe and Newtown,for comparison basis, and to include Sandy Hook Elementary, for the years between 2007 and 2012.

      He has a clear legal right to access all the document files, because of his occupational and residential status in Connecticut. It was reported by “Slight of Sin,” that this will take place over the course of the next three weeks.

      1. Thank you for sharing this news, Sandy. The building inspector will be doing a great public service.

  27. “A different type of report will be written one day, about how our community transformed society into one of peace, love and hope.”

    Monte Frank 28 Nov 2013

    1. Attorney Frank is obviously a liar then. I am sure he does not believe this is an earthly paradise, or that there ever can be one. No sane person could believe that. But somehow he thinks that if we can be persuaded to live in his web of lies, some few may keep their guilty secrets, and that will be paradise enough for them. Peace love and hope are not built on such dishonesty as the grotesque fairy tale that is Sandy Hook. Quite the contrary.

      Obviously he isn’t practicing law in that hearing, in spite of all the honors heaped upon him over the years. Has his game gone off or was he always one to appeal to prejudice instead of to the facts? And did that work for him in the past? Is that how he could be so successful? Or is there another reason, other than his hidden but brilliant intellect? Perhaps he is only following orders.

  28. Chief of Police Kehoe stated, under oath, that there were no communications between their Bell Helicopter 407 – known as Trooper 1, and the Newtown police. The helicopter’s log states that it was deployed specifically to assist with a manhunt. How much assistance could they be without contacting the police on the ground?

    According to the 2002 Connecticut Department of Safety Annual Report: thttp://www.ct.gov/dps/lib/dps/public_information_files/brochures/2002_annual_report, the helicopter possessed state-of-the-art avionics communications equipment.

    The following is an excerpt from the pdf file relating to Trooper 1:

    The State Police Aviation Unit is based at Brainard Airport in Hartford. There are currently
    three full time pilots assigned to the unit to operate the three Cessna 182-fixed wing aircraft, and
    the Bell 407 Helicopter, (Trooper One). In addition to the three full time pilots there are three
    temporary worker retirees that are fixed wing pilots and conduct missions for the Unit. Last year
    the pilots logged 793 hours of flight time performing surveillance, search and rescue missions,
    photographic missions, traffic enforcement, prisoner extradition, transportation for State Police
    and other agencies, utilizing the three fixed wing aircraft. The two helicopter pilots logged 921
    hours of flight time aboard Trooper One. The State Police helicopter has FLIR (Forward Looking
    Infrared Red) , Nightsun, Video down-link system, and a state-of the-art avionics/communications
    package enabling them to communicate with most agencies in the State. The aviation unit flew
    over 1,117 missions in support of Federal, State and local law enforcement agencies. Several
    missing persons were located, wanted persons were captured and high speed pursuits were
    monitored and controlled utilizing the equipment aboard Trooper One.

    1. wow that’s a lot of flying. Thanks for sharing. The idea there would be no radio transmissions to Newtown Police defies logic.

    2. And I would imagine each of those missions has the paperwork to prove it, yet this very important situation somehow shows no such communication, and Chief Kehoe denies it ever took place. I realize the relevancy of those other missions to this case does not rise to the level where it would be presented in a hearing, but if you are laying out the case against Sandy Hook, this has to be relevant background to show what an anomaly this is.

      I note that the police chief Kehoe was hired in 2001. When did the city attorney show up on the scene? What might his history be? Who has he represented in the past? I can see his interest in dismissing Halbig as a “nut” – but clearly, his own story is on much thinner ice.

  29. At last, bravo to the cameraman who nailed it ! I finally got to watch a video with decent audio and a good point of view of that little snake Monte Frank, Newtown’s attorney. His obstructionism was naked for the world to see at the FIOA Hearing. Frank objected to entering into evidence the CT State’s Police helicopter flight log. There’s just no good reason to object other than to cover up the facts. The Newtown Police Chief is a terrible liar. He looked over at his attorney for answers, looking away from the questioner. I absolutely knew then the Chief was lying when he said the time and date stamp were on the dash cam footage that was shown to Wolf. I didn’t even have to see the actual dash cam video. I knew there was no time stamp. Dash cam without a time stamp just does not happen, so the video shown to Wolf is bogus on it’s face value. Where’s the real dash cam footage? There had to be many dash cam videos. I want to see them all. Monte Frank objecting to any dash cam footage and State Police helicopter radio recordings to Newtown Police is a sea of red flags rising in unison. The Police Chief’s assertion that there was no radio transmissions to the State Police’s helicopter defies logic. I didn’t get the idea the Chief really believed it himself.

    The most serious of all beach warning flags, red flags warn swimmers of serious hazards in the water. One red flag means that the surf is high or there are dangerous currents, or both. Though you can still swim if there is a red flag, you should use extreme caution and go in the water only if you’re a strong swimmer.

    If you added hungry sharks to that description of a red flag warning – it aptly describes Wolf’s quest for the Truth. He’s a hero to me whether he wants to be or not. The way Newtown avoided the issue of lack of paperwork on the chemical toilet delivery at the crime scene was another sea of red flags rising in unison. Such a mundane and innocuous request. As a former delivery man, I know it doesn’t matter what you deliver, there’s 3 copies of the delivery ticket: white, pink and yellow. Someone signed for them and there’s a date on three pieces of paper. Sometimes there’s a time of delivery, sometimes not, but’s there’s always a date. There’s only one reason to avoid showing paper work on the chemical toilet delivery. There’s a date of order and/or date of delivery that is not compatible to the story of Sandy Hook being a spontaneous event as opposed to a one so well planned they thought to order chemical toilets even though there’s a huge woods next to the school to take a whizz in.
    Here’s where Wolf really has them by the short hairs. No one will care about missing paperwork on toilets compared to using the children at the Super Bowl. They went too far with the children’s choir singing at the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl is planned more than a year in advance so if they changed the program just 6 to 7 weeks to show time, guess what… someone else had to get bumped to make room for the children’s appearance. If someone could find out who got bumped, that would be the scoop of a life time. But here’s the crux of the biscuit, what if there is no record of anyone getting bumped from the Super Bowl program? What if it was planned a year ago for the Newtown Children’s Choir to sing at the Super Bowl. Maybe Wolf should start looking back for a year, two or even three to find the school board agenda for green lighting the field trip to the Super Bowl. Go Wolf Go, Go Wolf go!
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7lY7x1Jqa0

    1. It seems to me that this is the problem with pursuing too many details in a spirit of giving them the benefit of the doubt until you demolish their arguments. Why would Newtown be the locus of the choir that went to the Super Bowl? Do we have any reason to believe those kids really are Newtown residents? We already can assume that they never attended Sandy Hook. Why fly them to the Super Bowl? Just put a bunch of trained singers on the platform and create a plausible deniability scenario in which they are “in honor of Sandy Hook” if anyone tries to probe further. Have them come from wherever.

      My attitude is to treat every bit of “evidence” with extreme skepticism because this is no longer a debate about whether something could have happened. If you are trying to convince the public, then this will not do it. I can imagine them saying that no one was bumped at all, that Jennifer Hudson was going to be the headliner, and they just added the kids at the last minute. That works, doesn’t it?

      The grotesque monument to Sean Collier is a big winner in my family – where my sister says “Well, it was a national news item. Now everyone can go and see it” (she does not live in Boston, but I remember how much she hated the building next to the Collier memorial arch – a Frank Gehry extravaganza destined to provoke comment and be on every tour bus itinerary, so you cannot miss the Collier thing next to it).

      I have to agree that the juxtaposition of the kiddie choir next to the warrior-like football players preparing for battle is a definite Leni Riefenstahl moment. I need to check back at the camera angles – it seems the viewer sees the children from above, but the players from below, to increase the sense of patronage in the powerful. “They are there to protect us – they are an embodiment of American strength and succor to the weak and injured.” Oh dear.

    2. This hearing above is very revealing. It shows the attorney for the town to be a person who argues from consensus and who wants to heap scorn on “unbelievers”. He has the perfect opponent in that patient female attorney, who meticulously goes through each document, demonstrating that FOIA requests have been denied if not deliberately obstructed (something she cleverly avoids stating). I understand after seeing this the importance of even the field trip for the choir.

      The attorney for the town seems to maintain that truth is what you desire it to be. The attorney for Halbig remains in the world of evidence and proof. She also clearly understands how to rein in Halbig if he is going off the rails – masterful. Between her and the videographer, we the people are truly being well served at this point. The record is being made, and whatever comes of it, it is what it is.

  30. Singer Jennifer Hudson joined the Sandy Hook Children’s Choir to sing America the Beautiful. An interesting fact is that Jennifer Hudson also performed at Obama’s inauguration celebration. I would love to hear and see Jennifer’s reaction to the question of when she was asked to sing with the children’s choir, who asked her and If she knew who’s idea it was to use the Sandy Hook Survivors at the Super Bowl and when did they first start rehearsing? Did the children show signs of post trauma during rehearsals? This is just few weeks after classmates are savagely murdered. Here’s another question for Jennifer: Did the children share any stories of how they escaped unharmed? Did they talk about their ordeal?

    I thought I would post the children’s choir performance at the Super Bowl. Lots of cutaway shots to show how inspired the football players were by mass murder survivor’s singing. It was heavy duty exploitation to engineer an emotional response to an event of highly questionable authenticity. The NFL being part of perpetrating this fraud is shameful. Someone at the NFL who knows Sandy Hook was a con job by the Powers That Be must have been reviled by the school choir’s appearance. You can bet someone at the NFL has the goods on the choir’s appearance being planned. If it was before the massacre happened, it’s a nuclear bomb shell. Super Bowls are way to well planned in advance to insert an act so close to show time. The bombshell of the century would be someone at the NFL leaking the choir’s travel planning documents. Imagine the cost of just flying 26 people plus their chaperones to New Orleans, not to mention their accommodations and meals. I can’t imagine Newtown paying for it. There’s a paper trail for this trip with the NFL, airlines and the hotels where they stayed, the restaurants were they dined. Go try to get a hotel or restaurant reservation for 30 people in New Orleans during Superbowl Sunday a few weeks before game time. I can’t imagine the NFL approaching Newtown about using their choir right after the shooting. They would at least let the dust settle for a couple weeks before they thought about approaching the school district. Wouldn’t you think? That would leave maybe four weeks to plan travel and rehearsal with Jennifer Hudson. I am not saying you can’t make it happen, but it would really tough compared to say having several months, perhaps a year to plan.

  32. I wonder how many parents and relatives of the school choir also traveled to New Orleans for the Super Bowl? If my child was singing at the Super Bowl, I would demand to be there. If I didn’t have the money I would sell something to afford going. I have a feeling most of these kid’s parents were there and so were some of their grandparents, aunts, uncles and siblings. If I was asked permission to use my child to sing at the Super Bowl, at the minimum I would expect free game tickets. At the other end of the spectrum, I would expect a totally free trip if there was no other compensation. Imagine what Jennifer Hudson was paid to sing at the Super Bowl. I wouldn’t expect similar money for my child, but I would expect something in return. A free trip to the Super Bowl for my family would likely get the job done. If the NFL paid to bring these kids, they paid for their parents to. I picture a minimum of 80 relatives getting a free Super Bowl Trip. If that happened, we are talking a vast sum of money to finance this little field trip. There might have been so many, they chartered a jet for 100 people, maybe more. If I was one of their teachers, you can bet I would want to be there. Please gives me your thoughts. Thanks

  33. I applaud Wolf and I so appreciate his guts, determination and dogged pursuit of the truth. I am pretty poor right now and have been unemployed for a couple months. But you know what, I am pledging to donate $20 to his legal fund. I don’t have the link, but I will go find it today. I can’t really spare $20, but I am going to donate it anyway. Would anyone like to join me? If you appreciate what he is doing, please donate with me any amount, even if it’s just a few bucks. He deserves our help. Go Wolf Go. I know there’s a million of us out there somewhere. You are an inspiration to activists every where who wish they could man up like you have.

  34. I was wondering if anyone experienced trouble donating to Wolf’s website. I tried three times without success. I will try again tomorrow.

  35. Re Attorney Frank: I refer you to what is almost a position paper for both Newtown and Boston. In fact the Boston One Fund and post Marathon “be kind to everyone” meme seems to derive from it:
    http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/dec/09/newtown-anniversary-we-choose-love

    – this is an article by Attorney Monte Frank himself.
    It sets forth the philosophy behind at least some of these staged events. Lies are okay “in a good cause” because we are too slack in responding to the violence in ghettoes like Hartford, New Haven, and Bridgeport where the poor take matters into their own hands and fight over crumbs.

    As you see, disarming everyone seems to be the solution rather than prosperity and economic betterment, including fair wages for the working poor. People arm themselves for a reason, and illegal trade flourishes when there is no longer REAL hope. But his solution is to disarm ourselves and be nice to everyone, even while running armies through our communities for enforcement.

    It’s a top down elitist solution, using terror theater to approve draconian solutions. And as we see with his exchanges with Halbig, it undermines the rational legal process with propaganda and show trials, as totalitarian systems require.

    The FOIA philosophy, which was initiated in the post-Watergate reforms, enunciated the democratic principle that files of government records were held simply as a housekeeping matter “for the people”, who were the true owners of them, and not to be hidden or destroyed to prevent scrutiny.

    That anyone trying to understand the operations of government should be able to make FOIA requests is part of that law (although the law itself merely supports the constitutional principles behind it). This law has been defied by both the Bush and Obama administrations, and as we can see in the hearing, is obstructed even at the low level of Newtown.
    If you want “hope” then it would reside in the people being the true custodians of these records, and being free to scrutinize them when some event needs to be understood in its entirety, including the actions of officials during that event. Absent the ability to know what the government is actually doing, you simply have the kind of hope that says “I hope they don’t hurt me.” That’s no kind of hope at all.

    1. Excellent post, musings. I am sorry that I am not going to read that paper, which as you say, probably sets out the philosophy behind current policies regarding FOIA requests.

      “If you want “hope” then it would reside in the people being the true custodians of these records, ”

      This “hope” would require “government of the people, by the people, for the people” and the reality is that that concept has not existed in U.S. government for many decades, if ever it did.

      Here is the way it generally works on FOIA requests.

      State and federal agencies have a stable of their attorneys who spend their days screening FOIA requests and judging what response to make to the request.

      An ordinary citizen cannot write a letter of request. Those requests will be rejected out of hand. You see, you must have a specialized skilled attorney to carefully prepare a FOIA request for a high fee, in the hundreds or in the thousands of dollars.

      These agency attorneys’ job is to reject as many of these FOI?A requests as possible by finding loopholes in the legal basis for the request as stated in the requests. The real policy of all levels of government regarding FOIA requests is to say no whenever you can and ensure that whenever is nearly always.

      It is quite easy to reject requests from ordinary citizens who likely do not know how to avoid the legal traps in phrasing their requests in just the right way. Over the years, these attorneys have had to figure out how to reject the more sophisticated requests prepared by another attorney, but this has been successfully dealt with now.

      Sometimes, especially with simple letter FOIA requests prepared by individual ordinary citizens, the agency attorney will responde with an individually prepared two or three page letter of rejection. Of course, this rejection letter costs the taxpapers several hundred dollars. The recipient of the letter has to read through some legalese and logic gymnastics to determine that the answer to his request is no.

      The rejection letter sent to the attorney who prepared the FOIA request on behalf of his client is perhaps less opaque to the recipient attorney but the answer is still no. It is very costly to go to the administrative law “court” and contest the rejected FOIA request and the no outcome is just as likely.

      I would be curious to know which of Wolfgang Halbig’s many FOIA requests were simply not responded to at all, not with a letter, not with any kind of response. It would seem that his attorney should ask the Ct. FOIA “hearings officers” the legal basis for there being no response at all.

      Many may be just coming to this realization that we do not have an open democratic system, but the history and records and facts show that we have not had such an open democratic system in a very very long time.

      Wolfgang Halbig is doing the right thing and doing this in the “American” way, that is, based on the assumption and belief that we have a democratic open system. His efforts have made it much more clear that the Sandy Hook school shooting event was a meticulously planned and sophisticated fraud on the American people, one that is to this day being actively perpetrated and supported by “officials” in or closely connected with the state of Connecticul.

      1. And in the case of Halbig, it seems that some of his requests were met with unresponsive garbage irrelevant to his request, thereby being “no” by another means.

        Simply by going through the process he exposes the guilty secrets.

        It’s one thing for NSA to collect data and communications on us for “national security”, and for officials to hide their RICO-level frauds behind stone walls. They claim it is their right and duty. But where is the transparency the other way? Nowhere to be found, for if it were we would see so much it might bring down the government and then who would protect us from “the terrorists”? With the foxes rounded up, the hens would simply scratch and who knows, maybe keep their own eggs too. Life as a chicken might get pretty nice.

    2. My previous comment got devoured in the religion distraction – in the Carver press conference I would swear atty Frank is standing to his left and his face appears now and then. Was he running the show then & now?
      Was wondering why was the bike run in the cold months of March and April? Even May could be impossible in the north, but of course we do not really believe they actually ride their bikes except for photo ops.

      Here is the first annual that teamed up with Virginia Tech anti gun team mates. Seems Frank’s daughter graduated from Sandy Hook 2 years ago according to this article and wouldn’t you know Ms. Soto was her teacher that year. Only problem is that she taught first graders….
