Editor’s Note: The following set of observations by Independent Media Solidarity members and MHB reader Paul Bennett is especially insightful and in our view warrants a separate post. Since the Sandy Hook massacre event this site has provided copious documentation that the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program [HSEEP] training has been implemented by local and regional authorities to conduct routine training with the objective of inclusion in the given area’s news cycle. Awareness of HSEEP and related programs has resulted in many alternative media and independent researchers actually tracing alleged mass casualty events to such drills and drawing public attention to a potential relationship.
The record reveals how particularly during the Obama administration some of these events were seized upon by political groups to promote gun control legislation, generate fear of “angry white supremacists,” and so on. Further, as the videos below suggest and as the “crisis actors” theory first postulated, massive federal funding toward HSEEP has prompted an entire industry to emerge and service local bureaucracies and their first responder staff conducting such events.

Fake News is its own reward. That is, there does not need to be a “reason”, or policy change, behind the faked news item. Debating the possible purpose of a fake media event is a complete waste of time.
Most of the time these drills are concocted by local authorities along with the local media, and generally following HSEEP protocol. From time to time the mass media outlets, NGO’s and politicians may decide that your local drama fits into their larger campaign, in which case they will invade en masse, but the vast majority of fake news is designed to stay on the back pages.
James Tracy: In Solidarity with Alex Jones: US News Media Targeted Professor for Questioning Sandy Hook While Failing To Do Theirs – Fake News Indeed
I am a former Associate Professor of Journalism and Media Studies at Florida Atlantic University (FAU). In early 2013, I became the target of a smear campaign led by prominent news media after I questioned coverage of the 14 December 2012 Sandy Hook massacre. The media called on FAU to fire me because of my concerns. I therefore appreciate your clear condemnation of the Mainstream Media (MSM) for “fake news” where those posing as journalists spread falsehoods and propaganda.
As a student of news narratives for nearly two decades, I observed several contradictions and anomalies in the media’s presentation of the Sandy Hook event. Following the shooting, for example, emergency response protocols were abandoned and first responders were refused entry to school grounds. Authorities apprehended an alleged gunman but placed him in the front seatof a police car.
James Tracy: In Solidarity with Alex Jones – Sandy Hook Mother feted by Obama was Personal Assistant to Democratic Fund Raiser Maureen White
On 16 January 2013, in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting, President Barack Obama signed no less than 23 executive orders to constrain our access to weapons under the 2nd Amendment. A few months thereafter, on 13 April 2013, at Obama’s invitation, one Francine Wheeler delivered an impassioned speech for gun control from the President’s Oval Office, a distinction Obama previously conferred only upon Vice President Joe Biden. The choice is telling on multiple grounds.
Francine is likely the only actress with credits for doing the voice of a character in an animated porn feature to speak from the White House. Francine is also a musician member of “The Dream Jam Band.”
Editor’s Note: In this entertaining and informative vignette independent researcher and truth activist Harold Saive explains his unique encounter with the Colorado-based VisionBox Crisis Actors Guild, where he applied for and was briefly granted membership in early 2013. The Crisis Actors organization cancelled Saive’s membership after he made several online remarks questioning the December 2012 Sandy Hook massacre event.
Two of the young gun-grab heartthrobs from Parkland Florida are being rewarded handsomely for his “reporting” on the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas School. They’ve landed a book deal–or perhaps the book deal landed them?
David Hogg and Lauren Hogg, students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and survivors of February’s deadly mass shooting in Parkland, Florida have signed a deal with Random House for a book to be published in June, EW has confirmed.
The siblings have been leaders in the gun control movement that took shape among students, in the aftermath of the Parkland shooting. Their book, #NeverAgain, is described as “a statement of generational purpose, and a moving portrait of the birth of a new movement.” The book will explore their efforts taking on some of the most powerful forces in Washington and beyond, and will detail their commitment to new legislation aiming to prevent future tragedies.
“In times of struggle and tragedy, we can come together in love and compassion for each other,” David Hogg said in a statement. “We can see each other not as political symbols, but as human beings. And then, of course, there will be times when we simply must fight for what is right.”
Hogg’s most recent escapade involved leading an advertiser boycott of Laura Ingraham’s cable news program because the broadcaster poked fun at the fact that Hogg was only admitted to fourth-tier universities.
NeverAgain is scheduled to be published on June 5. That’s not much time to put a book together, so their ghost writers had better get started!
Second Law Enforcement Officer in Disbelief Over School Shooting
By James F. Tracy
Alongside the Facebook posts and unusual death of Broward County Deputy Jason Fitzsimons a second South Florida law enforcement officer is using social media to publicly question the February 14, 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
Over the past several weeks Ericson Harrell of the North Miami Police Department has taken to Facebook to share ideas and insights with like-minded critical thinkers on complex issues and events. He’s been asking important questions about the Parkland massacre that are making corporate media heavily invested in the narrative increasingly uncomfortable. As a result several regional news outlets have lashed out at the skeptic, prompting his employer to open an internal investigation of Harrell’s potential “thought crimes.”
The day after the Valentine’s Day shooting, for example, the North Miami police officer pondered in one post,
“What if the cops went into school and shot and kill[ed] some students?! Would they be forthcoming? Lawsuits would help to find out.”
Elsewhere Harrell observes the more-than-subtle psychological warfare being waged on the public through the prevalent use of terms like “active shooter,” to gear individuals toward anticipating an increasingly militarized society.
This detailed feature-length analysis of the April 15, 2013 Boston Marathon bombing utilizes primary sources (still photographs and video) to argue that the event was a carefully-coordinated drill presented to the US and global public as a genuine terrorist attack.
