An Op-Ed the New York Times Refuses to Publish: Wolfgang Halbig’s Quest For the Truth

By Alison Maynard


(Sent April 7, 2019)

[Editor’s Note: The author concedes that the New York Times typically does not publish pieces in direct in response to, or complaining about, reports which appear in the paper. Still, a perspective defending school safety expert Wolfgang Halbig’s credibility has yet to appear in the Times, or for that matter any other news outlet reporting on the legal actions brought by Sandy Hook parents. Nor have such outlets honestly covered any of the ensuing controversy leading up to these most recent activities. Such one-sidedness more than suggests the increasingly propaganda-like nature of such news media’s “reportage” and commentary.]

Wolfgang Halbig’s Quest for the Truth

The article by Elizabeth Williamson published in the New York Timeson March 29, 2019 (“How Alex Jones and Infowars helped a Florida man torment Sandy Hook families”), is so monstrously full of misinformation—and disinformation–that it deserves a response.

The “Florida man” is Wolfgang Halbig, a 71-year-old school security expert and former state trooper.  Mr. Halbig has been dogged—and uncompromisingly ethical—in his search for the truth about the so-called Sandy Hook shooting, a search prompted initially by horror, giving way to astonishment and disbelief at glaring inconsistencies and falsehoods in the reportage.

At no time has Halbig “harassed,” “hounded,” “pursued,” or “tormented” Sandy Hook families.  He has focused, instead, on obtaining public records from state, federal, and local agencies, such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency; Newtown Police Department; Newtown Public Schools; and Connecticut State Police. Most of these agencies provided no records whatsoeverin response to Wolf’s Freedom of Information requests, despite legal mandates.

For example, Wolf has tried, in vain, to obtain the log created pursuant to a sign that said “Everyone Must Check In” which shows up in photos of the fire station taken Dec. 14, 2012, as well as the transmission log of “Trooper 1,” the state police helicopter in the air that day, purporting to track a suspect in the woods.  Halbig has been denied these indisputably public records.  He subpoenaed witnesses who had presumptive knowledge of conditions at the school for his FOIA hearings, but Newtown’s attorney Monte Frank improperly told them to ignore the subpoenas, and Wolf was provided no relief for this misconduct.  The police at last gave Wolf “dash cam videos” he had requested, which are not, in fact, dash cam videos, since they do not show the hood of the car.  They also show different scenes putatively taken from the same location at the same time, so were clearly faked.

After Ms. Williamson’s initial contact with him, Mr. Halbig provided her a document he had filed with the court explaining and linking to over 60 exhibits, available here.  These are largely the FOIA requests, although Exhibit 21 is a forensic expert’s analysis comparing photos of Avielle Richman and the living girl Lenie Urbina, concluding they are the same person.  Wolf requested Williamson use her clout to obtain the check-in log and Trooper 1 transmissions.  She said “Do not contact me again,” and then reports that Halbig “did not respond to emails and telephone messages.”  But the questions she asked of him show that, instead of investigating the event, her goal is embarrassing Halbig.  She asked, for example, why he was not represented by an attorney in the lawsuit brought by seven Sandy Hook families.  Although it is anyone’s guess why she would ask this, in answer Wolf can point to a Connecticut attorney who contacted him in 2014, Abe Dabela, who, three weeks after their conversation, was discovered in his overturned car shot in the back of the head, a death determined by Redding police to be “suicide.”

Williamson also asked why Wolf had requested documents relating to the “cleanup of bodily fluids, brain matter, skull fragments and around 45 to 60 gallons of blood.”  The point is, there are no such documents—and of course there should be, given 26 putative shooting victims and that biohazard clean-up requires a permit.  She refers in her article to a letter Wolf received from the Diocese at Bridgeport ordering him to “stay away” from St. Rose of Lima Church, reciting that he had been previously warned not to come there.  But no previous warning was ever made:  the Monsignor sicced police on Halbig the first and only time he went to that church. The letter thus recites a falsehood, and is not among the matters Williamson asked Halbig to comment on, yet she stamps the imprimatur of “the Nation’s Newspaper of Record” on this scurrilous hearsay, again saying he failed to comment.  Speaking of St. Rose of Lima, the video CNN showed of cops rushing around with guns drawn on Dec. 14, 2012, was shot there, not at Sandy Hook School.  The mendacity and breach of public trust exhibited by CNN extend to the entire mockingbird press, obviously including the New York Times.

In her latest email, Williamson asked Halbig for contact information for his wife.  If she were interested in the truth she would be inquiring, instead, into such things as:

  • Why there are no videos of any children evacuating from the school;
  • Why no emergency personnel ever entered the school—why they were, in fact, prohibited from entering, and were hanging out at the fire station over 500 feet away;
  • Why demolition contractors were required to sign confidentiality agreements;
  • Why none of the Sandy Hook teachers filed claims for disability stemming from PTSD, or even physical injuries, despite two reportedly shot;
  • Who ordered the Port-a-Potties and when;
  • Why several people in the photos wear lanyards around their necks;
  • And a multitude of other things, not to mention the literal millions of dollars pouring out of the public spigot into the wide-open mouths of hundreds of “stakeholders.”

And of course she would be reporting on the government’s thumbing its nose at the law in lieu of responding to his FOIA requests.

Ms. Williamson could also have reviewed Wolf’s filings in the defamation lawsuit to see what substitutes for due process in the “Constitution State.”  In fact, her initial email to him said the lawsuit was what she was looking into, yet she reported nothing about what he has filed.  On July 12, 2018, Wolf filed a motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction (since he is a Florida resident who conducts no business in Connecticut) and lack of subject matter jurisdiction (since the plaintiffs failed to allege a single false statement he has ever made about any of them). That motion has languished for over nine months, yet is required to be decided before anything else.

Instead, the judge, one Barbara Bellis, blithely and regularly convenes conferences with the other parties without notice to Wolf, and issues orders apace.  Bellis has ignored his motion to recuse, pending for five months–another type of motion which must be ruled on before a judge takes up anything else–and recently ordered him to submit to the plaintiffs’ deposition, although he disavows the court’s jurisdiction over him!  And she has ignored his motion for sanctions for the misconduct of plaintiffs’ attorney Matthew Blumenthal, the son of a senator, who appeared on television to smear the defendants in order to poison the well of potential jurors.  This is an open-and-shut violation of the Rule of Professional Conduct prohibiting pretrial publicity.  Instead of taking swift action to remedy the prejudice to the defendants, Judge Bellis just blows it off.  Some judge. But the point is:  Williamson said she was writing about this suit, asked Wolf to comment on being ordered to submit to deposition, and was informed by email specifically about his filings, yet has said not one word about them.  Apparently the truth would cause people to be sympathetic, and the NYT can’t have that.

As for the notorious Lenny Pozner, he filed a frivolous lawsuit against Wolf in Florida in 2015.  After 2½ years, the court ordered Poz to appear for his video deposition.  Pozner dismissed the suit three days before that was to take place.  So there are many things Ms. Williamson could have written about, but chose not to, revealing an agenda which is obviously the same as Blumenthal’s:  to prejudice the venire.

Here are three particularly compelling facts Halbig documented for Williamson, which she also failed to mention.  Newtown Public Schools applied for FCC reimbursement for Chalk Hill School—in the Town of Monroe, not Newtown—on March 13, 2012, full nine months before Sandy Hook students were reportedly moved there because of the “shooting.”  Food was also being delivered to Sandy Hook School “@Chalk Hill School, 375 Fan Hill Drive, Monroe, CT” on April29, 2012.  He provided her the delivery records.  And Google Earth popped up an image of Sandy Hook School when the address “375 Fan Hill Drive, Monroe” was input on March 29th, 2012. This hard evidence that the event was staged is among Wolf’s stunning discoveries.  It is the real reason the Sandy Hook plaintiffs are “struggling to stop him.”

  1. Thanks to Alison Maynard one of the very few honest lawyers of the roughly 1.3 million in the U.S. Most of the U.S. Justice Department are lawyers. In fact, most of our elected bodies, Supreme Court, Congress, etc. are lawyers. Why have no charges been brought in Connecticut for failure to enforce open records laws.? Yet today we are blasted with news of charges against parents who paid to have their kids accepted into say USC. Are not the violations in Connecticut at least as bad or worse than bribes to get into USC? Note the deafening silence of usually noisy big mouth Trump on all this too. It is his same silence as he maintains on the 9/11/01 con. With all his friends in Israel do you believe he does not know every sordid detail of how they pulled off that scam. I bet he and Netanyahu laugh about it on the phone every day. I never thought I would live to see America in such a deep state of dishonor and blatant lying and cheating by so many officials, mostly lying lawyers. Imagine what the Founders would say if they could rise out of their graves and see what has happened to their creation. It is difficult to find adjectives strong enough to even talk about all this total betrayal of what America once stood for.

    1. Isn’t nearly every member of Congress bribed to vote for the interests of Israel over all others? Isn’t this a crime? Why no charges against these members by the lawyers in the Justice Department? Isn’t this more serious than paying to have your kids get in the a low level cesspool like USC? Don’t rich parents basically do this same act every day to get their elitist kids into Harvard and Yale? Do you ever hear of them being prosecuted? Let’s solve this problem by forcing all kids, rich and poor alike. to go to war and risking dying or becoming disabled for life for Israel. Let’s stop giving the elitists at Harvard and Yale a pass while the poor kids get shafted for life by joining our totally corrupt military today.

        Think for a moment about all the myriad of human activities on this Earth and compare them with the single totally corrupt money making activity in America which gets 99.99% of free propaganda time to brainwash the public further that so called “sports entertainment” is really a “sport” and not an illegal gambling racket which it in fact IS! And that racket extends from virtually all college so called sports up. Numerous books have been written describing this racket but of course are never mentioned by the propaganda artists profiting from this racket in America. Just contemplate how much better our society and country would and could be if all other human endeavors could receive only a fraction of the time used to brainwash the population with money making so called “sports”, but in fact fixed gambling scams?
        How do we know the latest “fifth” “win” or “sin” by Tiger is real and not fake? Think about all the (tax free) money changing hands because of this very very unlikely so called “sin” or excuse me, “win”? Already our embarrassing pig in charge sees dollar signs as usual and promised to again prostitute our highest civilian award again instead of giving it to deserving courageous Americans like Professor James Tracy, Ph.D. who lost his job for speaking up on the Sandy Hook Con to abridge our precious rights under the Constitution or Wolfgang Halbig or Professor James Fetzer, Ph.D. who have all demonstrated courage and intelligence and valor way above the norm compared to the lying cowardly media. Wouldn’t it be a cake walk for the other “competitors” to “give” Tiger another win especially if MONEY or enough of it were involved? I challenge anyone, Prove that Tiger really won a 5th time without corruption involved? Sports is the biggest criminal racket in the world today and has been for a long long time. Americans love to be fooled, conned and fleeced and had.
        And finally let us not forget another very courageous and intelligent player in the massive Sandy Hook con racket: The late William Shanley. All four of these courageous giants should be awarded the Medal of Freedom not another multimillionaire Sports Racketeer Con Artist so Draft Dodger from Jew York Trump can make a few extra bucks hidden in secret on the side from his rich Israeli and Saudi billionaire friends. Oh, excuse me I hit the J instead of the N above! The N on a typewriter is just below the J.
        Winfield J. Abbe, Ph.D., Physics

        1. Win, you and you alone have the duty to prove Tiger is guilty of cheating, etc to win the Masters. It is NOT our duty to prove to you he’s innocent. As in, innocent until proven guilty, remember?
          Get with it, geezer, the sun doesn’t rise and set on you.

        2. Not only do you appear ignorant of the historical influence of gambling on sports, Bahmi, but you have now earned yourself some enmity.

          The Medal of Freedom has been given posthumously and to foreign citizens. If you scan the above list of recipients you see how it has been heavily given to political hacks and sports figures and some well known religious personalities. Here are a few examples of many which could be provided, of some who stand head and shoulders above many who have received the award:
          Otto H. Warburg, M.D., Ph.D., 1883-1970, Solo Nobel Prize Medicine 1931, nominated for two others 1926 and 1944, considered the greatest biochemist of the 20th century. German. Author of over 500 scientific articles and books.
          Reference: Otto Warburg: Cell Physiologist, Biochemist, and Eccentric First Edition Edition
          by Hans Krebs (Author), Roswitha Schmid (Contributor)
          Clarendon Press; First Edition edition (October 8, 1981)
          “The Hidden Story of Cancer”, Brian Peskin, E.E. and Amid Habib, M.D., Pinnacle Press, Houston, 2006-2010. This book has extensive discussions of Warburg’s seminal cancer discoveries.

          Captain Chaplain Charlie Angelo Liteky, 1931-2017. Medal of Honor Recipient for saving over 20 wounded soldiers in Vietnam. After he discovered the corrupt activities of our Government in South America and elsewhere he returned the medal and demonstrated at the School of the Americas at Ft. Benning, Georgia. He was arrested and tried and sentenced in Federal Court to two stints in federal prison and voluntarily gave up a lifetime pension. Jacksonville, Florida.

          Andrew Wiles, 1953-, English Mathematician who also studied at Princeton University credited with the solution of the unsolved problem known as “Fermat’s Last Theorem” in 1994-1995. This problem remained unsolved for nearly 4 centuries with some of the top mathematicians and physicists like Carl Gauss were unable to solve it. Even today only a relative handful of people in the world claim to understand the proof so there might be some questions as to whether it really constitutes a proof.
          Refererence: “The Last Problem”, E.T. Bell, 1961; Bell was a professor of Mathematics at Cal. Tech.
          An interesting criticism of Wiles Proof:
          Roger Boisjoly, 1937-2012. Mechanical Engineer who graduated from the University of Massachusetts, displayed courage and dedication to duty in a valiant but unsuccessful effort to halt the failed launch of the 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger mission which killed the entire crew due to low temperatures which caused the rubber O-rings separating the hot engine gasses from the cabin housing the crew to become brittle and fail. Roger Boisjoly and other engineers too were overruled by political hacks in NASA management who all should have been prosecuted and jailed for criminal negligence and manslaughter. Of course nothing happened to these criminals but the corrupt powers that be destroyed Boisjoly’s career. This whole episode was a shameful disgrace for America.

  2. Thank you for this concise and spirited defense of Wolfgang Halbig, Alison Maynard. You are an indefatigable champion for truth. Mr. Halbig is lucky to have you.

    I, too, wish the New York Times published responses like yours, but at least your well-written piece has been appended to the article in question at the NYT site in the Dissenter browser plugin. With the plug-in installed, you can go to that page and it’s there to read. I included a link back to MHB, too.

    More people need to read this.

    1. Toni, your inane comment implies that all sports are rife with crooks and corruption. Plus, how to you level your high handed blame on Tiger Woods,anyway? Have you caught him cheating while he plays?
      You are too comfortable writing here, you claim to be some sort of universal arbiter.Boo!

      1. Imagine this: the pressure is put on another player to throw the game. This is what I mean by your ignorance of history.

        You are remarkably unimaginative for a conspiracy theorist.

    2. Oh–thanks for that, Toni. I didn’t know anything about a Dissenter browser plugin!! I will check that out.

    3. Are you the one who put the link to the article on the Dissenter plugin, Toni?

      Thanks very much for that! Or if it wasn’t you, I wonder who did that. (Unfortunately, I can’t add the extension, myself. My computer is interfered with a lot!)

      1. Yes, Alison, it was me. I appended your fine rebuttal to the original op-ed at the NYT site using Dissenter.

        They make a Dissenter plugin for each of the major browsers, if you want to try another one.

        The plugin makes it so you can publish any Dissenter comment to your GAB account, which I did with your letter. The thing about GAB is, it could use some intellectual stimulation! Sometimes it seems like a bunch of juveniles have skipped school, and they’re smoking cigarettes and cursing real loud.

        It’s evolving as a site, I hope. Even juveniles have to grow up sometime.

        Thanks again for the letter. It’s heartening to read.

  3. Pro-Tip for MHBers:
    It’s well-known that search results in google are algorithmically filtered according to their official censors, and that search engines like duckgogo provide broader results. Just compare the two sets of results when searching Wolfgang Halbig. Duckgogo includes a few positive links among the negative ones.

    Here’s a way to avoid the same censorship which is occurring at Youtube which hides videos from searches:
    make a site-specific search using Duckgogo using the modifier

    For instance, search Wolfgang Halbig in youtube’s search bar and get a set of video results that are uniformly negative.

    Do the same thing in duckgogo by typing:
    Wolgang Halbig

    You’ll get totally different search results including many positive Halbig videos that are censored from Youtube’s (read Google) results.

  4. Toni, here’s a pro-tip for people who try to post helpful information:
    Spell names and addresses correctly. Like, for example, spelling WolFgang with an F, and writing DuckDUCKgo, not Duckgogo.
    Here’s hoping that the rest of what you posted is accurate…

  5. The truth will prevail one day. Buy Dr. James Fetzer’s book, “Nobody Died at Sandy Hook.” Give to your friends, your children, grandchildren, library…spread the word. God Bless Alison Maynard and Wolfgang Halbig.

  6. All mature, adult Americans need, NEED, to read “Trance Formation of America” by Phillips and O’brien.It’s a heart stopper and will show you the devastating filth in our government mind control programs.You will learn things that will totally disgust you and make you realize this nation is dissolving in its own rot.Think you don’t hate our government?, well, this book will rekindle your hatred of the government and the slimeballs who are handmaidens of the devil incarnate. It’s totally repulsive but ya gotta read this book. It’s overwhelming.

  7. Thank you, Alison Maynard. It was heartening to see a full throated pushback against the demonic narrative. They don’t call it a “good fight” for nothing, and a curse on all the imps at CBS who pervert that notion by calling evil good. Wolfgang is a hero, and your assistance will not go unrecognized.

    1. Thanks a lot–thanks to everyone for your supportive comments here. (Didn’t want to be a bore by thanking each person individually!)

      1. In fact, now I’m feeling that I was rude NOT to thank everyone individually! Haha, at any rate, thank you, thank you. Wolf thanks you all, too.

  8. Deception running so deep in the US… you need a backhoe to get to the truth. Here’s your school shooting du jour, please be generous to the poor. They aren’t aren’t coming to disarm us, no they would never harm us. And what about above ground nuclear tests? We survived their very best, attempts to kill us all in one fell swoop or slowly one by one. Is there silent weapons for quiet wars on humanity? Will the spew planes poison the Earth beyond recovery? Will everyone get cancer from eating Round-Up in the Cherios? Will 5G drop birds from the sky, while no one wonders why? Weather warfare the world wide. Apocolyptic hail, biblical floods and the state of Maryland conducting tornado drills. I told them to drill for Unicorn Stampedes while they are at it. I keep asking why none of the Climate Change Activists ever mention 160 patents on weather modification, the in your face geo-engineering with hideous synthetic clouds. The air force writing papers about owning the weather by 2025 and using it as a weapon… a force multiplier with plausible deniability. I wonder if any of the activists ever go outdoors and look up? Climate Change Activists run away from elephants in the room. While vaccines are such a good idea, they swap teamed a family to force them in Arizona! Here’s the video

  9. On, *Everyone Must Check In*

    Just what is the issue supposed to be? I never figured it out.

    Accepting the OV, they’re expecting teams of people from various government agencies who will want to explore the premises, and they want to know who has arrived and give them useful information about where they need to be and who to see. They’d put up this notice board. So what? What am I missing?
