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

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

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

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

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 On December 28 one was filed, then quickly withdrawn.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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  1. Thank you for standing your ground and continuing to demand an open, honest, independent investigation into the Sandy Hook incident !
    We will not let it rest until they have been exposed for their lies.

  2. Truth cannot be compared to anything but itself.

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

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

    Nonetheless, I do continue to support and applaud this site. Quite simply because it is one of the best we have, at present. .

    Sandy Hook was a massacre all right, a massacre of the truth.

    Please continue.

    Thank you very much.

  3. Hi James Tracy,

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

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

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

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

    The best armor is knowledge, and truth will prevail.

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

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

  4. There is a blog called “sandyhookanalysis” where the owner of the blog has published a critique of the recent book “Nobody died at Sandy Hook”. The author of the post calls into question some of the evidence put forth in the book. I don’t know if this relates to the part of the book James Tracy is responsible for, but are you planning to publish an answer to this attempt to debunk the book?

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

    1. Why do these criminals use staged hoaxes?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      1. I know, but it’s a way to keep in the loop with family and church members. I know everything I post goes into a database, so I don’t link to family members, have any of my social history on it, or post or comment anything too controversial; I mostly just post some unschooling quotes and “like” pictures of friends’ kids.

    1. Yes, just imagine a few years from now. They waddle out on the walkers; “Jesse could bench press 550lbs when he was in the cradle and once strangled a raccoon that was after the dog”.

      Gene will give a “twilight performance” of “she was…..frozen!”. They can finish up with a few honorary laps around the firehouse.

  6. One shooter, targets all over the place and a 100% kill ratio (precisely NO wounded-and-surviving victims)?

    The anticipated ratio – unless the victims were utterly compliant, utterly passive, standing or sitting or lying still to be murdered “execution style” – would’ve been about three (3) wounded for every one (1) person killed.

    This stank on ice – indeed, it REEKED – the moment this story hit the news.

    1. I’ve cited your statement/conclusion for years. I used to have the stats somewhere. All these hoaxes, no one dies in ambulance or in hospital. ZERO! They all die on the scene. Impossible. Proves one more leg of the staged events. And why is that, bc they’d have to talk to DRs and family members and hospital staff would be there for more questioning. They want to keep it simple and isolated. No one dies anywhere.

      1. Writes cp3:

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

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

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

        1. Me too. More than any other element, the treatment of the “wounded” and “deceased” decided it for me. Simple empathy and procedure aside, imagine the lawsuits.

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

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

    3. There was one woman supposedly shot in the foot, but of course, she was never interviewed by any of the accomplices in the press. You would think this woman could even make a few bucks giving her story to some tabloid show.

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

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

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

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

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


        1. When people realize we have a phony government that is full of “crisis actors”, if you will, then we can get down to business. The entire set up is frauds that put their family and friends in positions. Sandy Hook and the other BS events, including terrorism, simply expand bureaucracy and open more phony jobs for real money. We failed watchful eye and we are now, in fact, slaves.

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

      1. I completely agree with you Gil.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    2. Folk, you’re quite right. I worked with a guy who virtually had a melt down over this. I’d never seen him that way before. In some deep psychological way this became “real” and “personal” for him.

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

      We all carry around baggage of one type or another. They apparently hit on a formula that triggers illogical emotions in many. I have no doubt that, just as they read our posts, they read those of the “true believers” as well.

      They keep altering the maze and measuring the lab rats.

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

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

        1. Precisely. They live vicariously through them. It’s “McGrief”. Just another product for consumption.

  9. Got into a big FB fight just last night about Sandy Hook. Several people privately PMd me saying they knew someone who lost a child. There is no arguing with them because, well, they are stuck in their beliefs. When asked for the research they’d done all anyone uses is Snopes or Wikipedia. But they don’t care to examine my proof, this very blog, to open their heads. Anyway, thanks for all you do. Some of us really appreciate it.

    1. Social media is a funny thing.
      If you look at the hashtags and posts on different “events” like Sandy Hook and 9/11, there are so many grief vultures. People would rather hash tag and blindly be spponfed MSM trash an event than question it or listen (without name calling) someone else’s take on said event.
      I can’t tell you how many forums, message boards I’m on and more than one member knew a child from Sandy Hook or they were supposed to be on of the 9/11 flights.
      Those kids must have been the most socialized children in the world and A380’s must have been used on 9/11.
      So I take any claims with a grain of salt when they use them to try and shut down a conversation

      1. The approach I take is “what if the news are more propaganda than truth?” There are two responses, the ones who say “what do you mean?” and the ones whose eyes are about to pop out and say not a word. The former is approachable, the latter is not.

  10. .

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

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

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

    Mass Murders Captivated Online User Believed To Be Adam Lanza

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

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

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

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

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

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

    As an example, the Courant states:

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

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

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

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

    = 17 years, 17 months, 7 days old

    Which is occult speak is :

    = P7 years, P7 months, 7 days > 777


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

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

    Just two of the many decoded references in the article.


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

    14 December 2012 was precisely :

    = 1321 months, 1321 days + 1321 days

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

    1321 = P216 = P( 6x6x6 )


    = P( 6x6x6 ) months

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

    666 666 666

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

    which, in occult speak is:

    = 343 months + 2309 months

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


    There are also very strong indicators to :

    GHW Bush

    Hillary Clinton

    The British Mandate for Palestine

    Dick Cheney

    Barack Obama

    Adolf Hitler

    Paramahansa Yogananda

    et al

    numerous other shooting events etc

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

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

    and expired on 13 September 2004

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

    = 9 x 11 months


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

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

    My eyes hurt from rolling so much.

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

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

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

    Gun control inaction makes mass shootings a way of life

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

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

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

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

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

    Washington Post

    Marie-Claude Duytschaever is a member of the Everytown for Gun Safety Survivor Network

    1. Let’s see: appeal go emotion, appeal to fear, begging the question, ad hominem, where do we stop? And all scribed by a representative of a BLOOMBERG-backed gun-grabber front group that has no problem using PR to terrorize the American population & indoctrinate the youth to make the American people defenseless, as if that’s somehow the solution to terror.

      Now, assuming this were real(it isn’t), no one among these ideologues seems to recognize these shootings as taking place in GUN-FREE ZONES in gun-restricted municipalities, which is precisely WHY these places are targeted(by the government planners), nor notice all the “drills” playing out these exact scenarios that always seem to come to fruition…while somehow the “authorities” just can’t seem to stop the very scenario they planned for. Golly gee wiz…no matter what we do, we can’t stop terror!!!! Aaaahhhhh?!!! The PR, the psychological bombardment, the Media, that’s the REAL TERROR, not the event itself.

    2. This “grandmother” is all over the place today. The attributions credited to her are written by able bodies at Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety Survivor Network.

      This is from Tulsa, very telling. The comments are from a clueless bunch, representing the majority out there. Sad.

      Also, the grandparents of “Noah” may be very wealthy by their own merits, by they did move into some real fancy digs outside Seattle not long after SH.

      1. Anne B, I’m of the opinion that this whole thing is a massive op, staged-managed all the way down to the comments section & editing in the newspaper blogs, to give the illusion of massive support for an agenda the VAST MAJORITY of Americans don’t support…which is the very reason PR campaigns like this have to be launched, and why MAINSTREAM MEDIA are in lock step. Just like the anthropogenic climate change op, appeals to emotion, fear, terror, begging the question, ad hominem attacks, appeal to the children…every logical fallacy not nailed down will be employed because FACTS DONT MATTER, only THE AGENDA!! We can’t expect scoundrels to play fair, especially since NOBODY DIED AT SANDY HOOK(interestingly the 1 month anniversary since Fetzer’s book was banned by Amazon…the one world book company & therefore not a coincidence). This is a massive PSYOP all around & from top to bottom.

        1. Rico, slap me with a wet noodle. You are right. I sat there wondering why so many people in Tulsa would care so much about SH. Even after all this time it did not dawn on me that absolutely everything is controlled, even down to lowly comment sections everywhere – if they let us comment at all.

          Clicking on the link Ric just posted I got Error 552. Another proof that they only let us see what they decide on. I marvel at this all encompassing control industry that is in its final stages. Fait accompli.

    3. .

      A classic example of the method …

      Paramahansa Yogananda died 7 March 1952

      Noah Pozner birth date reported as 20 November 2006

      INTerval =

      = 666 + 666 + 666 weeks

      666 + 666 + 666
      666 + 666 + 666
      666 + 666 + 666 days >

      666 x 6+6

      and / or :

      = 666 + 666 + 666 + 666 weeks

      666 + 666 days >

      666 x6

      It is also :

      = 444 + 444 + 444

      444 + 444 + 444 weeks
      444 + 444 + 444 days >

      444 x3 x3


    4. I wonder what this “grandmother” thought when she saw her grandson turned up also shot dead in Pakistan. Was it like losing him twice? Or did she think it moved the agenda forward in Pakistan so that children could attend school without fear? I mean, she’s a woman who thinks in agendas, in movements, and so even a mistaken posting of his picture would gladden her — I hesitate to call it “heart”.

      Meanwhile, in Southern California, the University of Redlands has posted a radio interview program about the shooting. The chief of police of San Bernardino is interviewed. It turns out he is an alumnus of Redlands. And of course the home of the shooters was a beeline from the campus, straight shot. If you do, I think you can listen too.

    1. I use Firefox, use Noscript and Ubock Origin (ad blocker). Noscript turns off all scripting by default So I go to the page. Read the article and have to click a button to read the comments. Click the button nothing. So I start turning on scripting to activate the button. I get stuck in a endless loop of it asking to register, and then it will no longer display the article, just immediately drops to asking to register and keeps dumping me back to front page. I eventually turn on every scripting option… no change.

      I was planning on making a comment. Apparently the Sun-Sentinel knows who I am… 😉

    2. Great to hear! Very Mark Twain of them to greatly exaggerate your demise. I was stunned that they actually published your piece, given the assault they’ve launched against you since SH.

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

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

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


    1. Daniel, I would add that there may not actually be a “mass” of angry zombies sharpening their pitchforks. I rather suspect that the drill is still in progress and reactions are being evaluated.

      I’m sure you’ve noticed that, beyond emotion, there is no “there” there. There is no real evidence to support their tale at all. There is weeping and indignation.

      Just like with so much else these days, we do not need permission to criticize. I actually think there interests are not so much to stifle criticism as to learn how to control it.

    2. MSM is not wont to allow use of their pages and airtime to show their turpitude. Wherein lies our problem. Somehow, falsely so, America pretends it is concerned about the little guy. Nothing is farther from the truth. The little guy is treated like a cow, milked and milked and milked. Our detractors use well known techniques of Alinsky, the screaming, insulting, denigration, abnegation. Some times I wonder if we should be using these same techniques.

      1. Gill, what happens is that they accuse us of being heartless and having some agenda. What they don’t do is answer our questions. No matter what they say about any of us it has absolutely nothing to do with the facts in this case.

        We say “where are the bodies”. They say “Gawd, what horrible people you are, you should be shot”. We say “show me the documents”. They say “how dare you ask for proof. What sort of people are you?”.

        This is an entirely mindless response. It is pure emotion. They would rather be angry at us than to find the truth. It is related to people’s need to be accepted by authority. That is related to their fear. If they are good little boys and girls daddy will protect them.

        You’re right to a degree I think. We should be saying “grow up and answer the question”. Or, “how dare you. This is a free country and I don’t need your permission to ask questions”. “What sort of ‘news’ outfit are you to accept ridiculous tales such as this with such flimsy evidence?”.

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

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

    1. Thank you.

      I have also received one recent report from a trusted party of Sun-Sentinel editors, tech support, or whomever has clearance on their site, delete supportive, detailed and entirely civil comments from the Dec. 10 article.

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

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

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

      We will save our nation, or else we will watch it writhe until we are serfs again.

      1. Thanks for the recommendation, sadly I’ve already read it months ago. Very apt in its description of the very phenomena we’re witnessing & in some cases, subjected to. Jacques Ellul’s “Mass Psychology” is another good one that goes with this.

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

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

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

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

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

    Adam Lanza calls in radio station a year before Sandy Hook shooting and gives bizarre interview — LISTEN TO THE TAPE


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      1. good point, Gil. In the Marathon bombings, the guy who supposedly got his legs blown off who fingered the younger brother didn’t testify in the trial.

    2. I agree wholeheartedly with Possum’s comments, especially the first and last paragraphs.

      Thanks James for standing up to a tremendous amount of pressure. I’m certain they assumed you would run away and hide or get fired, but you held your ground and kept your composure. Well done.

      Instead of putting you out they fueled the fire. I can relate.

      Keep on keeping on!

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

    1. These people that feign indignation at the suggestion that this was a hoax can be thwarted with this single page from Wolfgang’s web site.

      Law Enforcement personnel breaking out boxes of Doritos, Gatorade, bananas and groceries while laughing it up at a tailgate party smack in the middle of a crime scene. This being done while the secretary and nurse remain unaccounted for and after armed dangerous suspects in a purple van are at large-

      So when people say “Oh my God how can anyone even think that this was a hoax” I would simply send them to this page.

      If they want additional reasons there is a never ending supply of fraud indicators here as well as elsewhere.

  16. James, thanks so much for what you do. Being the cynical crowd that we are we don’t always acknowledge your courage and uncommon sense.

    It is more than telling that critical analysis is now considered heresy. Apparently, freedom of speech is now trumped by other’s “feelings”. Media is now authority.

    Unfortunately I suspect you are a bit of a test case. We’ve said before that the drill is not over. Evaluation of damage control efforts are still ongoing. I doubt we’ll be privy to the final report.

    People are being taught that it is better to be safe in their government-provided cocoons of manufactured “reality” than to be active participants in their lives.

    No matter how this ends you can be proud of your integrity and choice to stay to the high road. It would be reassuring to believe that there were some higher court that actually worked as advertised to hear complaints such as these.

    In the same manner that “media” has been made into mere mouthpieces for the corporate/government agenda, education is now to be transformed into acceptance training. We’ve seen historical examples of this in the past with fascist regimes.

    Those such as yourself who dedicate their lives to providing the tools our young need to set them free must endure the self-serving machinations of lesser men and women.

    We are here for you James. Don’t be afraid to ask.

  17. It is a vexing topic and one I believe we all struggled to deal with. It was so painfully obvious that there was no emotional impact on the participants of this event that we strained to come to grips with actually took place.

    How could somebody use a drill and put on a full fledged marketing campaign to goad the citizens of this country into donating money and relenquish their rights?

    It is all hiding in plain sight other than the demolition of 2 buildings since the perpetrators control the information and the narrative. FOIA requests are the governments best friend because they can slow walk the process and use it as a buffer to make sure any weakness in the story can be patched with every inquiry. Also using it to their advantage to denigrate someone who questions them.

    I will say it over and over. The event at Sandy Hook was told to the American public as a real time Urban Legend. 3rd person information that could never be validated. That is what an Urban Legend is. An assembly of stories.

    The official report is an assembly of stories. No hard evidence of anything. Heck the stories contradict each other…but it does not matter.

    Once I realized this story telling explanation of everything it all made sense.

    Sandy Hook. Urban Legend and the story that made me understand the propaganda in force today.

    1. For tens of millions, life is but a soap opera. If things don’t fit the patterns of their lives, things don’t wash.

      We may get very discouraged by our apparent lack of success in illuminating people about the nefarious skulduggery directed at this country, but remember that a huge armade is aligned against us and we are but little tykes carrying slingshots trying to down Goliath.

      Sometimes I wonder where Ramsey Clark is, Francis Boyle, Edwin Vieira, and other superlative lawyers. Are they suing the government now or have they been amply threatened by TPTB?

    2. Yes, indeed. There is another dimension to this as well. The “official” version now “requires” acceptance. Those who doubt are not to be tolerated. Media represents an orthodoxy. Unorthodox beliefs are dangerous.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      What a terrible example we have become.

      1. “The answer for speech we disagree with is more speech.” Brandeis in a concurrence in Whitney v. California; later extended by Brandenburg v. Ohio, where the court reversed Whitney and held that speech was protected (even the most offensive, as by the KKK) absent a call to imminent lawless action. The concurrence by Brandeis (and Holmes) earlier, was based on the idea that if the communists who were being prosecuted should only lose their free speech rights based on “clear and present danger”, but that notion became seen for what it was in the intervening years – the need to suppress dissent in the public by the powerful in order to retain power at the expense of constitutional guarantees.

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

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

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

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

        1. There is cops and bomb squads every here in LA.

          I just hope “They” don’t blow something up to say “We Told Ya”

          This is all theater.

        2. I think England is where the next big false flag will be.

          San Bernardino was our little Kraft International extravaganza.

        3. I’m always interested to see what people remember and what they forget when grasping for a talking point. Just this minute watching Ted Cruz at the debate talking about immigration of potential terrorists. He actually stated that San Bernardino happened because of loose borders. I immediately looked up Farook because even I, neither a master debater nor someone serious (?) enough to run for President, recalled he was American. Yep. Born in Chicago, too.

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

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

          Isn’t that why getting the truth out is so hard? It isn’t how these guys roll, and one of them is going to be the winner.

        4. Musings – the wife was broadcasting bad things on the internet and our leader won’t let them look there because…. she came on a ‘marriage’ visa that was a sham. This script certainly followed their agenda.

    1. Reading the LA Times this morning, it seems the threat was called in to a school board member, and, due to the recent event in San Bernardino, it was seen as more credible.

      This would follow the developing notion that the San Berdoo was an ISIS attack, and only follow logically from that.

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

      One thing you can say for sure – the movie companies will not lack for work or locations.

      1. the craziest part – to me – was that they said the kids had to Wait for their parents to pick them up, and each parent had to show ID!?! Can you imagine what that did for the morning commute –

        1. Regina,
          Thats going to rough for Democrat’s that have kids in the LA School District.

          As you know from the left, Peolsi and Reid, Democrat’s don’t have ID’s that’s why Voter Laws that require ID are racist……

          Lot’s of kid’s stranded I guess..what a laugh

          I’ve often wondered..How do you qualify for State and Federal Assit. w/o ID ?

      2. It’s ironic, ISIS is an Israel/US construct, with outside help from the Gulf states. Are there actually Americans who realize this? Would it make any difference? You bet. There is a fair sized core of sentient Americans that are balanced between believing and non-believing and this could sway them in the right direction.

        The Fetzer/Palecek book was to be an ace in the hole but it was effectively blocked by orders to Amazon.

        Lawsuits by perps and sympathizers against truthers would open the door to examination of all the data, not just selective data mined from hand picked sources. Could be wrong, I don’t believe the perps really want to sue anybody, too much at stake by exposing all the data.

        Isn’t it about time Wolf Halbig has another session with the FOIA process?

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

        2. Gil, yes it is ironic. Israel has been caught rescuing and treating “ISIS” terrorists in Israel. You may have noticed that the self-proclaimed “Wahhabis” NEVER attack Israel.

          As to blocking by Amazon, I’m not convinced that it is. It needs an experiment to find out.

          I agree that they would not want to actually sue anyone. Of course that process can be used to punish someone financially.

          As to Wolf, I think “Elvis has left the building”. While Rense keeps posting things by him he proclaimed that he was through. Lenny and crew recently posted the attached on his history. It is long but somewhat instructive:

          Wolgang_Halbig_Hoax.pdf – Google Drive

          I was thinking of writing a post about it. The thing to remember, both with James’ ordeal and the Halbig revelations, is that none of that means a thing in terms of the questions related to SHES. It is all diversion.

        3. Let me try the link again:


        4. Seems like I’ve seen reference to the Saudi royal family being of jewish origins. Does this explain their working together, Israel and Saudi, on various projects, i.e. terrorism?

        5. Yeah, if you get the time there’s a lot on the “Young Turks” and the Armenian genocide that ties to that. Wheels within wheels. Turkey, ISI, all the “players” have common threads.

          None of these things happen without a script. They all know each other.

        1. It takes next to nothing (or does it?) to disrupt life across a broad segment of society. I read that LA Unified contains 1,000 schools from K-12, and also 640,000 students (many of whom have working parents who were not anticipating such a disruption). On the strength of this phone call, so it is said, and because of the recent event in San Berdoo, officials deemed it advisable to shut down everything. They said they wanted the building staffs of these schools to look over everything out of place during the day when the shut-down was in force, to see if anything looked amiss. The teachers were told not to come in or sent home.

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

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

        2. Now it seems (according to report in ABC News) that this was an email broadly sent around the US, including to New York City schools. New York decided it was a hoax (imagine that!) and determined they would not react to it as LA did.

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

          Now to see if they “have something” to back it up. Probably not necessary. It will be interesting to see how this is played in the policy making sphere.

        3. Hey! It could happen. I heard that several legislators have been contacted by a Dinuvian member of the Galactic Council. No……, really.

    The Florida Sun-Sentinel paywall article above, by Lenny & Veronique Pozner, was also posted yesterday at The Forward, the journal that matters to American Jews …

    Time To Crack Down on Newtown ‘Truthers’ Who Tarnish Memory of Noah Pozner

    Veronique and Lenny PoznerDecember 14, 2015

    Read more:

    See the Comment from cruz_ctrl where James Tracy’s email, phone & the FAU Director contact details have bee posted …


    1. I read the article and the comments (as many as I could bear, anyway). I can’t believe the vitriol and libel! If “truthers” are harassing these people, then why aren’t charges pressed?

      One of the commenters said he actually hoped “hoaxers” would “die in a fire”. And they call US sick! Another commenter let loose with the “anti-Semite” accusations. That’s actually the first time I’d seen that one in action.

      My thoughts, prayers, and support go out to James and his family. Imagine if people like Dr. Tracy and Jim Fetzer were cowed into silence: what a sad, scary world this would be.

      1. The idea that you “crack down on” people who disagree with you – that it is high time you did – seems so, well, Stalinist. Either you follow in lockstep or you get locked up.

        1. Perhaps someone should ask The Forward commentariat, if the world should “crack down” on alleged fathers who refuse to attend their own son’s funeral …


  20. The Sun-Sentinal begged like a hungry puppy for 99 pennies to view the oped. After several minutes of groveling, my good conscience demanded an exit. That nasty ct word has gotten quite boring and there is no need to pay attention to their regurgitated spew.

    Let’s have a lawsuit against all the fraud involved in the name of gun control that has only increased sales and spurred the multitudes to bear arms for the first time in generations. How many shootings have occurred in gun-free designated zones? Can we include all the harm caused with faux trauma, especially to our innocent children who are petrified with daily terrorism training?

    We have great hope with our modern day truth speakers, Drudge and glimpses of rebellion in the msn. A commentator on Fox was recently shocked with the lame picture of the helmeted, snow goggled, gun buyer in Bernardino.

    “This is ridiculous, what a stupid picture that is! Who is in charge of pictures? Can we just get real here?” Commercial break!

    Yes this is much bigger than Sandy Hook, the Swedish arm must be very disappointed in their short sighted quest to disarm us. All the chaos in the old homeland has led the citizens to clean off the shelves in the gun stores and the local police pleading with them to help fight off the invasion of the illegals.

      1. This is the last section of the Daily News article:

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

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

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

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

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

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

        A made up quote. A lie.

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

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

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

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

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

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

        We can only hope.

        And pray.

        1. Apparently this Facebook page is getting a lot of play at where there are shrieks for prosecution (not just a libel suit – because after all the Pozener’s are too shaken to proceed, but not too shaken to go to every sympathetic site and drum up support). I think the ultimate goal is not prosecution or LOL an action in tort, but to get Tracy fired for conduct unbecoming. That’s the goal the fabricators have in mind because, frankly, there is little coherent critique of these events outside of memory hole blog.

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

        2. Hartford Courant had some exceptionally vicious comments in their diatribe against Tracy a couple days ago. Normal replies were critical, these I reference were extraordinarily nasty and condemnatory. They stood out like a sore thumb, judging from the pro-Malloy/Obama drivel emanating from the bowels of the Courant, it’s very possible outside muscle was supplied to emphasize “how heinous Tracy really is”.

        3. I’m so glad that you checked this out, Pat. I was going to, but my husband had major surgery on Tuesday and I’ve been consumed with private matters (worrying, commuting, hand-holding, and now nursing).

          I am “friends” with James on Facebook and it’s true, he only posts “re-posts”, no opinions, other than whatever’s in the re-posted article.

          One of the reasons I like Dr. Tracy is because he never says anything publicly that I feel like I’d have to apologize for. He has never suggested pestering anyone involved. He simply raises questions, and lets other people speak. He seems to be as mild-mannered as they come. The most “inflammatory” I can recall him being is his open letter to AC, and AC had that coming. He never bad-mouths his university or uses his public forum as a bully-pulpit (I hope I’m using the term correctly). The allegation that he uses his blog for self-promotion is laughable…I suspect it’s brought him more grief than anything.

          No, we need MORE like James Tracy, not fewer.

        4. Sadly, our masters won’t be pleased until there are none like JFT remaining.

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

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

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

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

        5. He is careful and even. This isn’t about any real offense. I’ve had them come after me a couple of times. It is amazing to watch. The single most descriptive word for it is “shameless”.

          It is a tactic that works. It works even better when they’ve done the preparatory work ahead of the assault. It’s one of the reasons they are so successful.

          I said before that to know a psychopath is to be in competition. The best course of action is to avoid them. Once engaged there is no option but to fight.

          James has not done anything to be ashamed of. No amount of teeth gnashing and rending of garments is going to change that. It says volumes more about them than him.

        6. Patrick, I agree. The point, however, is that, even if he did have strong opinions, so what? None of this has anything to do with his work. I’ll amend that. It has everything to do with his work as part of that is teaching critical thinking and analysis.

          If every allegation were proved true, it has nothing to do with his work in the sense that his opinions must mirror those of the MSM. All of us here have voiced much stronger opinions on these pages than James has. Are they saying that they are holding him personally responsible for everyone’s opinions?

          Has “Lenny” become the gold standard of acceptable opinion? How does that work?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

        9. PS: That might be a UK thing I was thinking of. It looks like blog owners are protected under Section 302 of the Communication Decency Act of 1996 (which is part of the Telecommunications Act of 1996).

          I’ll keep digging; maybe what I was thinking of was related to SOPA or PIPA or one of those.

      2. You search the story on Google then its free because they pay Google for the Link.

        A Direct link to the Sun will badger you for a buck to support the Muslim Brotherhood…They still like Obumba

    1. Write or call the university administrators. Be polite. Have your constitutional arguments ready.

      Universities are succumbing to the pressure of those who are loudest/get the most media traction and abandoning all logic, even though they’re supposed to be teaching our youth to think critically!

      This is one of many disasters stomping on Freedom of Speech. Don’t allow this to happen without protest!

      1. The ironic truth is that the erosion of tenure rights truly will become massive when one university professor’s are somehow canceled on whim. The bullies now try to convince everyone that there is some inscrutable moral imperative that justifies what is a tarring and feathering of James Tracy. He is a modern day heretic and we can only hope that other truthtellers in his field recognize the epic danger of remaining complicit in it.

        1. Unfortunately it is my firm opinion from having observed academics in action, that they will not voluntarily raise an objection to something from the violent “real world” because perhaps they view that world as so corrupt and dangerous, they want nothing to do with it, politically or socially. You can convince them of just about any outrage happening in that world. And, too, they want to keep their status and their belonging to a privileged group. You cannot stay in the charmed circle unless you surrender your right to certain forms of critique.

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

          One wry and gentlemanly professor (who did not fall off a turnip cart yesterday) said that when he looked at the officials on the dais for this occasion, he saw the politburo in all its glory. That word told me he knew and he was daring to say, almost in a whisper, that it was b.s. But do not expect him to go farther.

        2. Absolutely. The more invested the easier to control. My wife worked at a university for almost twenty years. It was an idyllic life within that little orb. Lot’s of good, if not meaningful, conversation.

          Life is “out there”. There is also a lot of backbiting. Petty disputes over meaningless nonsense. Most have never had any real exposure to “the real world”. For them it’s all, er, academic.

          It is very true that you know when you’re making a difference. That’s when they come after you.

        3. Now Sun Sentinel is actually trying to convince the public that firing James Tracy will actually help ‘save tenure:’

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          This could happen to anyone.

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

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

        That is the central question of all these hoaxes. They ask people to abandon common sense. We are in a dark ages mentality at the top of the MSM.”

        We are in an age when most folk cannot rely on their own five senses, since they are so rarely exercised …


        1. This happened, probably, in the 80s sometime, but it’s still illustrative, although we’re much, much further down the rabbit hole now.

          A friend of mine asked a friend of his, “are you going to watch the meteor shower tonight?”

          The other replied, “Is it on TV?”

    2. I’m no longer accepting such flimsy excuses. The s.o.b.s are engaged in a massive fraud upon the American people.

      As an American person, I stridently object.

    1. NY Post replaced the title of that post with a more hesitant “may be fired”.

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

      NY Daily News does not enable reader comments. I urge all supporters of Professor Tracy to write NY Daily News:

      1. I like this idea (contacting the NY Daily News) better than contacting FAU, at least until help is asked for. I worry about potentially making things worse, even if the intentions are pure.

        I suspect this is a warning more than anything else. Apparently, the PTB are feeling threatened. It’s not like actions are being taken due to any sort of public outcry.

        1. Recynd77, help will not be “asked for”. Trust me on this one.

          In this case, negative but common sense public reaction may sway the administration. This, like so many higher ed cases these days, is a Freedom of Speech issue.

          It’s constitutional and FAU would be wise to set a good example rather than bad.

        2. Nothing is going to help in the administrative process. It’s a rigged game. Lawsuits are expensive but the only recourse. They are damaging him, not the other way round.

          They have damaged his livelihood and, as the articles show, his reputation.

          The ugly truth is that no one ever “wins” in one of these. You can achieve a remedy if you’re successful. That doesn’t compensate you for the pain and expense.

          It is a lonely, helpless feeling to be the victim of a scam like this. All one can do is summon all of one’s will and hold your head high. It takes all of the fun out of it for them if they don’t break you.

    2. I had No Idea it has got this bad.

      Lenny says “Jump”

      FAU says “How High”. It’s bigger than Lenny when every news outlet runs the exact same story.


        1. He can use Bibi’s entrance. They hear their master’s voice. Odd isn’t it, how such an etherial character such as “Lenny” has so much clout?

          I rather suspect that “Lenny” is a lot like “Harvey”. That’s very useful when applying the screws. That way, instead of being accused of infringement, you can feign sympathy while claiming its someone else’ doing.

          The whole think is sickening. Blackballed for spoiling the pity party. No skeptics allowed in the New Oz (er Age). That’s where these devils do their finest work, in the shadows.

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

        Lock and load,

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

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

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

          I responded:

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

          Perhaps he will think of something.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

        3. I have it from a reliable source, who shall remain nameless, that this has been in the works for some time. There are “agents” actively colluding with the administration to affect this removal.

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

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

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

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

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

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

          I hope there is a special place in Hell for people like this.

        4. I wonder if obscuring this might also have been part of the timing:

          If nothing else, it would have been the type of topic some of us would have discussed and tried to educate about.

          The bill for Tim Murphy’s Stasi State ‘mental health’ legislation will probably be an even bigger obstacle to it passing in the Senate than its total evisceration of due process. Big Pharma is run by depraved crooks who want to pay off Congress to force the failing middle class into total collapse to maintain their profits, which I’ve said before the insurance companies refuse to keep carrying.

        5. I really think they may be making their move and using SHES as the first front.

          I went to SHES Facebook Hoax page and Facebook refused to let me read it without “signing up” or “logging in”. A white banner prevented me from reading Tracy’s letter and the responses.

          They want to know who everyone is.

        6. Do you know where the comment was supposedly posted? Like which post? I looked all over the Sandy H**k Ho*x page, but couldn’t find a comment from James…

        1. Well, “Ms. Marple”, I do believe you’ve cracked the case. Quite a coincidence, eh? I understand there have been some recent rather unorthodox personnel changes within his department.

          Sort of “spooky” if you get my drift. It appears to be more of a “who” thing than a “what” thing when it comes to recent placements.

          It looks to me like they have everything in place to spring their trap. Such a lovely bunch.

        2. That link is terrible. I don’t know what to make of it. They are bragging…
          I’m not a “the Jews” kinda of Guy.

          Digesting. There are Two. The Fake and the Real.

          Theses must be the Fake. We are told to leave them alone…..

  21. If the Pozners get Tracy fired, I am sure he will hire an iron balls attorney and finally, after three years of obfuscation, the truth will finally come out. Discovery, and more discovery.

    1. That is exactly what I am thinking, Kelley. But notice how lenny’s attack is based on EMOTION. Lenny (the guy who produced a fake birth certificate for his “son”) wants you to be outraged that someone would be so insensitive to question the death of his pretend son. Lenny does not want you to think critically about it. He wants outrage and emotion.

        1. “Correction: Lenny produced a fake death certificate; obviously there never was a birth certificate, either.”

          And the kid’s name wasn’t “Barack Hussein”?

          Well, no wonder there was no attempt made to forge a birth certificate. Look at how that Acrobat slam-together was instantly proven to be a fabrication the moment it was posted on the White House Web site in 2011.

      1. It would seem that direct, in your face, challenges to the emotional swamp that passes for truth dissemination is the only answer in this case. It’s easy to sue, not so easy to substantiate claims and pay for the lawyer.
        Challenge the powers that be in Connecticut, the governor, attorney general, representatives, senators, to this face to face grilling that will surely separate wheat from chaff. Put it on state TV, all stations, get neutral turf established to disallow the chances for kangaroo courts and have at it. Bring Fetzer in as expert witness, have him describe the book in question.
        It seems to me that direct confrontation is the only answer, the only way. The FOIA monkeyshines with Halbig was typical of the fact the state FOIA court could confound their charges against Halbig so easily. Really now, can the state really defend their positions on all issues related to SH?

        Not by a long show, no, never. Fence them into a corner and I think you’ll have them hollering “uncle” in short order. They cannot win a fair fight.
        Yes, a high percentage of Connecticut residents are ignorant regarding this case. They are showing the typical crowd mentality. Forget reason and rationale, just go at it emotionally and that will win the day. They’ve had their way as the lies have been repeated countless times at the state and national levels. It’s all people know.
        I’m particularly disgusted with the so-called academic fraternity, people who voted nearly unanimously for Obama TWICE, and have not interceded in the SH case. Imagine, these are so-called intelligent people who are teaching our children and they either refuse to use their vaunted IQ’s to study and evocate on this case or they are too busy studying their stock portfolios or following their college president’s call for a Diversity Dean or hiring of civil rights lawyers to keep things “on the up and up” at State U. No group of so-called “educated people” is more disappointing than the people that teach!!!! our children at schools charging an arm and a leg. Obviously, people like this are unfit to wear the title, Professor. Why does society “need” people like this?

      2. A lawsuit would demand complete spillage of information about the perp side of the street. I cannot imagine how a perp could sue realizing that he’d have to put all the info on the table for the scrutiny of truth seekers all over the world. Then again, if the perps own the judges, that could all change.

        Nobody I am aware of in Connecticut on the perp side of the street would dare sue the truth side, way too dangerous and potentially incriminating., Would be lots of perjured testimony.

        Something has to give…..and pretty soon. I hope Judge Alvin Hellerstein is not called in to adjudicate any cases related to SH.

        1. Gil, if there’s anything I’ve learned over several years about legal proceedings it’s “it depends”.

          Provided he can get someone to represent him that’s on top of his game, manages to find a judge that isn’t totally corrupt, and can hang in there while they challenge every motion for as long as physically possible, it COULD be successful.

          Money is probably the biggest obstacle. It is fun to fantasize about all the juicy stuff one could unearth during discovery, when one considers who is involved in this it isn’t difficult to predict some resistance.

          There have been success stories in situations such as this. of course i’m not aware of one involving this cast of characters. So, it could go either way. They could try to settle and avoid problems, or they could tap that enormous well of ill-begotten loot available to them and drag this along for an indeterminate time. In other words, there are a lot of “if’s” involved.

  22. I’m curious if anyone established if there were any open casket showings of the deceased….I saw a comment somewhere that suggested there were. It wouldn’ t make sense given the parents were denied the right to see/identify the victims’ bodies. The only way to validate this fraud is by exhuming the bodies and DNA testing. Establish who the parents are really, that is if there are any bodies. Too much evidence points to fraud and hopefully this Pozner attack backfires as it should.

    1. As heartless as it sounds, that in itself would not be proof that this happened as described.

      Actually, at first, I wavered back and forth as to whether anyone died. That doesn’t mean I ever thought it real.

      It is like the school being open or closed. That wouldn’t be definitive either. It would definitely be definitive of it being a hoax if it could be proven.

      When weighed against the preponderance of the evidence, the verdict is in. The rest are simply details. They are interesting details for sure, but they don’t make the event “organic” or contrived.

      I can remember that, at first, the assumption was that the shooting happened. Then, as more and more bizarre details began to be known it was apparent that something was wrong.

      From the first, there was little doubt that this wasn’t “natural”. Then with the treatment of the “victims” and the families and all the other folderol that followed, it was more obvious than ever.

      Sofia’s video cemented it. She gave it form. It became increasingly obvious that it was a planned drill. The script may have been insane, but that’s the script they performed to.

      So, here we are these years later being brought to task for refusing to believe this. How dare we! I suppose a lesser person could say “I didn’t contrive this nor did I participate in it. Why do I have some obligation to pledge allegiance to it?”.

      Oh, I remember. If I don’t, somebody’s feelings will be hurt. It must be my white privilege showing. I don’t see much of a future for me in the New World Odor.

      1. No future in a particular order, but the disordered elements include heretics like people here. The fringe, if you will, that is always a lot quicker and perceptive than the insiders – no matter the times or the issues. Just accept your burden, lophatt. It’s not always fun to be a smarty-pants in an elementary classroom full of clueless slackers. They can lay for you after school. But you’ll always have the pleasure of knowing they are ignorant brutes. And that’s something.

        1. Yeah, I’ve pondered that while duct-taped to a tree. You probably won’t believe this but I’ve been asked to stop asking questions a few times.

          “Disordered elements are what I thought the Church was referencing with people like Maddow. Maybe I’m confused. I’ll stop asking questions.

        2. Just for fun, check out the article about the new Star Wars movie by Laurie Garrett at CNN. It’s a good picture of angst that using the post-Vietnam War imagery of the fascistic Imperial Storm Troopers might somehow send the message that, because they are armored much like today’s troops, we might appear as the “bad guys” throughout the great international money catchment basis for revenues from the film. And wouldn’t that send the wrong message. Most amusing.

  23. Updated thread on fraud indicators associated with Sandy Hook –

    Something else I find somewhat ironic is that Vicki Soto’s family asserted that a truther Mathew Mills (millsmost on youtube) approached Jilian Soto at a fundraising 5k and inquired about a photo of the family appearing to be photoshopped. In one article the family asserted that Jilian was brought to tears because she was so upset.

    Now please help me understand this ok ? A truther asks about a picture and Jilian is brought to tears right ?

    A murdering psychopath shoots Vicki and her students an many others and Jilian is on TV smiling and laughing in an interview ?

    1. Every time I see the photo of the Sotos on this video, I can’t help but wonder if Carlos made an appearance in the Peshawar, Pakistan shooting also. He looks like the guy in the top left photo here:

      Can someone with a better eye than I have compare the two and see what you think?

      1. “To lose one SHES child in Pakistan may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose two looks like carelessness.”

        as Lady Bracknell would have said had she existed

  24. James Tracy is being clearly defamed. To give their absurd sensationalizing articles at least some weight, Daily News and Daily Mail have literally lied outright about him allegedly ‘harassing’ the Pozners. Without that fabrication, they would only have passive sleights of rhetoric like ‘his blog had topics of 9/11, etc. that most readers would see through easily.

    Since harassing can be a criminal issue that carries thresholds and state-sanctioned punishments, as well as civil ones, the burden of proof falls on the publishers of these claims.

    Is Paul Simienski guilty of harassing the Pozners? He is the chief legal counsel for WordPress and should be fired as well since it’s his company’s policy to oversee copyright dispute protocols, according to these liars.

        1. Or how about a GoFundMe? There are a lot of people who would give, I bet.

          We probably couldn’t match the deep pockets of the gov, but it could be uplifting, anyway.

  25. The first selectman in Newtown declared under oath that the
    dept of homeland security installed ‘the everyone must sign in’ sign at the firehouse. Why were they there and how did all those hundreds of people fit in that small building? Of course the first questions most of us had was astonishment that no EMTs were allowed in and why parents were not going ballistic trying to reach their babies.

    The Chicago Tribune along with the LA Times and more than likely all of the printed media are going bankrupt, they were just sold 11/15/15.

    We should not be surprised they resort to outright lies as this blog has clearly chronicled deceit after deceit. Hope Dr. Tracy has the lawyers who can get proper justice and he and his family feel the strength from all our prayers.

    Now instead of planting child porn on computers, they create facebook monsters to fit their bill of goods. There have never been any comments on Memoryhole facebook page by the author, let alone their made up talk of a mad man.

  26. There are breaking reports that James Tracy has been fired.
    Coming on the heels of the Prof Saliata case it seems he has a good chance in the courts and will get the support of the AAUP. Time to buckle up.I feel it was orchestrated with the arrest of Bundy Ranch marine from Washington St. Obama is looking for the reaction of the large group of ” constitutionalist” in eastern washington and the oath keepers.This is the beginning.

    1. Wrong link, I presume. But at the bottom of the article is a list to articles of interest, one of which is about James ( and it includes a link to a Facebook page where Tracy provides a brief outline of the book Nobody Died at Sandy Hook:

      In the Facebook post, James does tell the world that he concludes that Sandy Hook was a hoax–based upon the evidence the book presents, and in his concluding paragraph he indicts the Pozners as “as phony as the drill itself,” the quote the Daily News provided (with absolutely no context).

      He laid out his case, and states his conclusion soberly and effectively. Pulling the conclusion out of context is reprehensible.

      1. So far that higher ed link you posted, Patrick, is censoring civil, fact-based comments that fill out the story about this supposed ‘harassing’ of the Pozners, etc. Seems like they’re trying to make it appear as if they’re allowing civil debate but are only approving comments that don’t fully explain the real story and issue.

  27. The Daily Mail posted this article at 6AM UK time on 12/17:

    LA’s KFI radio station, the biggest in the city owned by iHeartMedia (formerly Clear Channel), were spewing out about Tracy today. I bet most listeners to this propaganda station have never heard of Tracy, but they’ve heard of Sandy Hook. You should have heard the vitriol and the lies spewed.

    The host started with: “We all heard about conspiracies and the kooks who believe in those, such as chemtrails. Well there is an even bigger kook over in Florida”. Then the rant came about Tracy and he went ballistic reading off a script, with his co-hostess chiming in with one stupid remark after another. It was sickening.

    1. The misleading headline aside, the article at the Daily Mail, if a bit slanted, is honest reporting. Nothing libelous. They phrased everything carefully, even if they want to leave a bad impression about him. It could easily pique interest, though, if read closely.

      I suspect that this is due to a combination of factors; the libel laws in Britain, which have real bite and inspire carefulness, and the intense competition in the newspaper business over there. While the Columbia School of Journalism and its many clones have trained what used to be reporters to drain all interestingness out of American papers (thus pretty much killing the industry), in Fleet Street they still write spicy to win readers.

      Your report about the radio show is much more disturbing. And that kind of radio show can’t be sued for slander. Tracy is a public figure, so you can tell lies about him in public with impunity (at least that’s how I understand it).

      1. No way, Patrick. I’m not an attorney but am semi versed in the law and further, was ‘off the charts’ for it when I tested as a college kid on a highly sophisticated battery of career and IQ indicators. I’ve gotten myself in lots of trouble for this quality and have had attorneys offer reduced rate for me to write my own legal briefs for them in semi-esoteric areas I’ve researched.

        They could absolutely be interpreted as libeling James Tracy in a number of phrases.

      2. OK, let’s look at that. He says its a hoax. So do I. Is that illegal, immoral or dangerous? No.

        He says he thinks the Pozners are phonies. Could be. I suppose if they believe they’ve been defamed they could sue. Of course there would be some study done to establish that they weren’t as described.

        In this country “punishment” is usually left to the courts. There is some measure of due process. It is seedy to quote out of context, but its done all the time. Even so, what’s he “guilty” of?

        Is government a religion? Is there a government orthodoxy with automatic and certain penalties enforceable against “heretics”? What about media? Are they covered under the same requirements to believe?

        At the end of the day it boils down to someone calling their self “Lenny” telling an employer that they are upset. Well, I’m upset too. Who do I call?

        I guess I could call Nutty Yahoo and tell him his prize puppet drives me crazy. I could call BO and tell him that his appointees are law breakers and conspirators. Can’t I get somebody fire? What’s up with that?

        After all, don’t they work for us? Ah, there’s the rub. They DON’T work for us. In fact, apparently neither does the Florida State University System. I wonder if they take tax money? Just askin’.

        By the way, when did they establish that these alleged complaints represented the majority view? I understand that they would probably peg an applause meter, but statistically, they are coming from a very small minority, even in Florida.

    2. That makes me physically ill, Anne. I stopped listening to KFI when I just couldn’t take that sort of deprecating nonsense anymore. How offensive; how incredibly insulting…it’s downright slanderous.

      1. I only listen to KFI (as little as I can stand) in the car going here and there. Keep the enemy close. It was just by accident I was in the car with the radio on when the hit piece on Tracy came on.

        It’s not the first time KFI has broadcast a hit piece on a “conspiracy theorist”. The afternoon jocks tore Rosalind Peterson apart when she came on to talk about chemtrails during one of worst aerial assaults in Los Angeles. She keep her cool much more than I could in the same situation. KFI has received the memo from the higher ups about chemtrails. They do not exist.

        Some years back the only person worthwhile on KFI was Lee Klein. He came on late evenings Saturdays and Sundays and talked freely about everything that is taboo in msm. Had on great guests too. Then one Saturday evening there was no Lee Klein. He had walked out, and rightfully so, when the female program manager called him in to her office and told him he had to change his format to less controversial topics – such as not exposing crimes in high places.

        Found this:
        Chris Sylvester ‏@ChrisSylvester_
        I miss my favorite radio host Lee Klein, wonder what he’s up to nowadays.
        5:53 PM – 8 Mar 2015

        1. That’s how I listened, too: in the car, to and from the market, the bank, etc. I mostly listened to John and Ken (who usually focused on local malfeasance), but also throughout the day. In the past couple of years, though, my tolerance grew thin: I stopped reading the OC Register, stopped listening to KFI, even stopped listening to Dennis Prager and Michael Medved (how did I ever stand him?). Now I stick mainly to podcasts and YouTube lectures/interviews.

          I just can’t take any source seriously if they don’t at least question these shooter events, or chemtrails, at the very least. I don’t care about conclusions so much, but the questioning. I try to guard against confirmation bias (which is why conclusions aren’t so important to me), which is more than I can say about the “Conspiracies Are For Crazies” crowd.

        2. Recynd77, on the KFI topic you are right about John and Ken taking on corrupt local and state politicians. There is no shortage of those and it gets ratings. But they ridicule anything else not approved by their bosses. The hosts there spout the company line about all the so-called mass shootings and flu shots as well. John and Ken were the two who belittled Rosalind Peterson when she came on to talk about chemtrails. She was completely unprepared for the viciousness she encountered. She runs this website:

          Now, yesterday the John and Ken duo did broadcast from location at Porter Ranch for 4 hours. That of course brings in ratings too because it has become a local concern of major proportions. Both Erin Brockovich and Robert Kennedy Jr. have inserted themselves in this disaster, representing their respective law firms. There are huge fees to collect from deep pockets. I’ll be house sitting in Porter Ranch over the weekend, only one mile directly south of ground zero as they now call it. I shall investigate.

          According to some in the know, it is not a gas leak but a gas spill which is much worse. The severity is being compared to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

        3. The Gas Smell has been so bad today. They were working on my street on a line and I stopped and asked them if that Gas leak was fixed.

          He said ” That is a different Energy Company not us and No it’s not fixed”

          Here’s the problem.

          Natural Gas has NO smell and that’s why they add the “Rotten Egg ” smell to it so you don’t die in your sleep.

          Well, this leak has that added smell which means it is NOT a well as they say.

          It is a Live Line that has been processed.

        4. Anne, They don’t care I’m getting Gassed in my own house..Kidding. I know its boring if it ain’t your house.

          It’s still strong this side of the Mississippi….

    3. It’s disgusting what passes as “news”, isn’t it? Everything is so wishy-washy, so many “could”s, “might”s, and “may have”s. So much speculation, and all of it so biased.

      How does one defend oneself against such squishy allegations? How does one recover one’s reputation? How can we help?

      Has Dr. Tracy actually received a letter of intent to dismiss? Tenure ensures, at the very least, due process. Surely he couldn’t be fired for some nebulous third party’s op/ed piece? I hope he’s got a helluva good lawyer. Maybe a legal defense fund could be set up for this purpose? I’d totally give to that. (If this has already been suggested, sorry…I’m behind in the comments.)

      Prayers. That is also needed. Those are being offered in abundance.

  28. There is a lot of things I’d like say regarding James Tracy, and this situation, but I know the Powers working for Lenny are the same powers that run and control wordpress.

    Tracy was confronted first by Lenny over the Pakistan Pic and copy writes.

    Tracy said “prove you own the copy write” with a B/C. Well, Lenny couldn’t come up with one as BHO so he put out a Fake DC..

    This is pure bull as we all know.

    This needs to reversed and THEY prove it’s Real.

    The Burden of Proof in court is on THEM, Not James or US.

    If this posts I’ll eat my hat

    1. So what you are saying is there is this beef between Pozner and Tracy about the copyright of the picture used in Pakistan. What I want to know is if Pozner is a real person. If he is, then surely he has left some sign of his existence and that of his son. Or is it a pseudonym of someone who does not exist. If we assume he is just as flesh and blood as Tracy (which I suppose his students could verify) – then Pozner should have a history which includes the existence of said son until he is killed in Connecticut. Or Pakistan as the case may be. You could imagine a real person getting upset that his son’s picture was displayed in Pakistan, rather than waiting around to be challenged about it. Who the heck is Pozner – what is he? Is he a professor at some other school pretending to be a grieving parent? Does anyone recognize him as someone else? Of course I recognize that with “Undercover Boss” for instance, the disguises can be pretty good.

      1. Your saying the same thing I am just taking it to a new level asking if Ponzer is even real..

        I Agree

        Look at the Pic he posted of him and Noah on his complaint articles and contrast that to him in 2012.

        A Heavy Lenny, looking about 38 to 43 yrs old (if it is even Lenny!) with his 3 yr old son. Look at the articles !

        So in 2012 he’s 60 now and his son is only 5 years old at SHE?

        It gets better, His younger wife works for the UN to disarm America..

        You can’t make this stuff up.

        PS: The Only Way to Save James is to make a BIG stink w/publicity, bigger than Halbig.

      2. From what I recall, his real name is somewhat different. All of the people in this scam are “characters”. There may be people playing the characters, but, it is the character performing the actions.

        Someone here claimed to have had a relationship with him. They talked. After a time he became aggressive.

        I suppose what I’m trying to say is that just because someone claims to be who he says he is, doesn’t make them “real”. Think BO.

        “Gene”, for example, is a real person. Is he a retired psychologist, orderly, cat keeper, actor? In the pageant he is supposed to be “the guy with the heart of gold”. I highly doubt that.

        Like we’ve been saying, most focus on gun confiscation. They miss points like these. They are modeling a new standard. As you pointed out, heretics deserve to be “cracked down” on, hard!

        When people don’t think they follow the herd. That’s the appeal of emotion. There is no requirement for thought. People in this state are malleable.

        By using an administrative process to punish, they avoid potential problems that could arise in a legal proceeding. Certainly you would have the right to be assured that the plaintive was who they claimed to be. You would be able to seek documents and other records that could lead to discoverable evidence. I don’t think they would like that scenario very much.

        For all practical purposes these people have access to unlimited funds. If I had to guess (and I do), I’d say that if they were suddenly on the defensive they would back down in a hurry. Of course the damage would already be done administratively.

        I don’t know the exact nature of the charges or the substance of any agreements James may have signed. For that reason I wouldn’t want to speculate.

        On the other hand, regardless of the success of their attempt with FAU, they are subject to legal action for their attack. I am assuming that they are gambling that it won’t happen. I really can’t see them actually fighting this in court, even one that is ultimately rigged.

        Anyway, I got off the main point. Real or otherwise, he is acting “in character”. I rather think that this has been “arranged” in advance.

        1. Point made beautifully.

          I agree, the public at large were subjected to behavior modeling: we are to accept the death of loved ones bravely, generously, and calmly. We can use those deaths as an impetus toward socially-just action, or we can go quietly into the night, but NO LAWSUITS! (Speaking of which, it will be interesting to see what, if any, lawsuits will come out of SB). The “party line” is to be toed at all times: police/LE are good, guns are bad, it’s better to be safe than sorry, and if you see something, for heaven’s sake, say something.

        2. That’s a good gauge. If there are no lawsuits, or a few that are dropped, it is even more likely a hoax. Real people in this day an age sue over everything.

          I really meant that intolerance of other’s opinions is the main message. Media and Government worship. The media is the mouthpiece of government, not the watchdog they once claimed to be.

          With the monopolies on TV and radio it is spilling over there. We have the same situation on radio here. They don’t say they’re owned by the former Clearwater, but they are. Same snarky comments about anyone who questions official anything. It’s a little subtle. Same man and woman talk garbage on the morning commute.

          FM channels all have that format here. You have to go to satellite radio and its only marginally better.

          It would be easy to grow despondent. I have seen the steady decline in quality of life and the slide to feudalism over my lifetime. They are not offering hope, they are selling obedience and acceptance. It’s rather Islamic.

          They run around exploiting the world and building their empire. Meanwhile, they are shaping our futures. Our aspirations are not a consideration. After all, once its all in the bag they won’t need bullet stoppers any longer. They’ll only need enforcers, cooks and yacht washers.

  29. I saw a sign on the street today that said, “Report Suspicious Activity,” and I had to laugh because what they want reported, of course, is suspect activity. Suspicious activity is what they’d like to get everyone engaged in.

    But it’s not really that funny when suspicion actually becomes a suspect activity, and questioning the consensus arouses such vengeance from some indignant quarters.

    “Hello, Homeland? I just saw a woman on the street, and I’m pretty sure she’s not buying into it. She said something about maybe things aren’t really like authorities describe. Pretty twisted, right?… You’ll take care of it? Great… No, thank YOU.”

      1. Ric, I saw the Report Suspicious Activity sign right after I had seen a sign for a pharmacy that will handle “your compounding needs.”

        I was like “who the hell are you to judge my needs?”

        1. Toni writes: “…right after I had seen a sign for a pharmacy that will handle “your compounding needs.”

          I was like ‘who the hell are you to judge my needs?'”

          The processes of “compounding” (in the pharmaceuticals sense) is a service that not a lot of pharmacies are set up to provide. The greatest number of these places are essentially just dispensaries, taking stuff from stock containers and putting it in labeled prescription bottles.

          When I order a pharmacist to “compound” according to a prescription I write, he has to combine active, binder, and excipient principals as specific chemical ingredients – which I expect is why the British call a pharmacist a “chemist” – in injectable, insufflatable, cutaneously applicable, suppository, or oral form.

          For instance, before Rogaine got FDA marketing approval, we commonly ordered pharmacies to bust up minoxidil (Loniten) tablets – an antihypertensive medicine which is still used as such – dissolve the powder into solutions of specified strengths, and bottle them for patients to apply topically to mitigate and remedy hair loss.

          “Compounding” is “tailoring” a dispensed medication to that specific patient’s requirements.

          Hospital pharmacies are thoroughly set up to perform compounding. Retail pharmacies in “drugstores”? Not so much.

        2. Toni writes: “Yeah, I’m aware of what compounding pharmacies do. I was making [a] joke.”

          Just forgot your [/sarc] tag, eh? I’ve had to explain pharmaceutical compounding to patients at some length over the past forty years and more, and I’ve found that damned few people have any real idea that a pharmacist – especially a PhD pharmacologist – does a helluva lot more than what the average customer can see from the drug store pick-up counter.

          The pharmacist is one of the very few people who can jerk us egomaniac “Me Doctor” types up by the scruff of the neck and make us say “Jeez, thanks!” for the favor.

        3. I’m not convinced that the concept is as difficult as you say. Weren’t all pharmacies at one time, before they became marketing concerns, compounding their own medicines?

          I am surprised that my reference was that obscure. It was a grammar joke.

        4. Toni writes: “I’m not convinced that the concept is as difficult as you say. Weren’t all pharmacies at one time, before they became marketing concerns, compounding their own medicines?

          “I am surprised that my reference was that obscure. It was a grammar joke.”

          The prevalence of ignorance in this particular (as in many others) shouldn’t be at all surprising. First, the average modern ‘Murrican goes to “the drug store” for a boatload of purchases other than prescription meds, including everything from milk to marinara sauce to marmelade, with a side trip to the cosmetics aisle for mascara and the impulse purchase of a bag of M&Ms at the checkout counter. Second, said average yutz has no proximal experience with specifically-compounded pharmaceuticals, and thinks that every pill, capsule, bottle of cough syrup, tube of ointment and pre-loaded asthma inhaler comes from the factory sealed according to FDA cGMP regulations and ready for dispensation.

          This is actually in accord with the biological principle of least effort. That average schmuck really doesn’t have to know this stuff to get by, and you’ve got to remember that by definition, 50% of the people you’re encountering out there in the real world have BELOW average intelligence. Sure they’re puzzled by the sort of sign that says the pharmacy “will handle your compounding needs.”

          Ought to be buttons proudly proclaiming “I’m Stupid, and I Vote!”

          The politicians and the private sector’s marketing types surely know that. How the hell d’you think we got Obozo not once but TWICE?

          In the words of H. Beam Piper (1963):

          “Every society rests on a barbarian base. The people who don’t understand civilization, and wouldn’t like it if they did. The hitchhikers. The people who create nothing, and who don’t appreciate what others have created for them, and who think civilization is something that just exists and that all they need to do is enjoy what they can understand of it — luxuries, a high living standard, and easy work for high pay. Responsibilities? Phooey! What do they have a government for?”

        5. The joke is that one’s needs are compounding away like interest, and the pharmacist intuits it.

          I’m not going to respond to your charge that people are too stupid to understand a simple thing like compounded drugs. I think it’s possible that you are just a terrible explainer.

        6. Toni writes: “I’m not going to respond to your charge that people are too stupid to understand a simple thing like compounded drugs. I think it’s possible that you are just a terrible explainer.”

          Likely I am. I’m sure as hell not getting through to you, am I?

          “…before some audiences not even the possession of the exactest knowledge will make it easy for what we say to produce conviction. For argument based on knowledge implies instruction, and there are people whom one cannot instruct.”

          — Aristotle, Rhetoric (350 B.C.)

        7. Toni asks: “What is it I’m not getting?”

          First, the fact that the great bulk of H. sapiens are, in fact, really friggin’ stupid. That’s not an expression of contempt but an assessment of capacity. Lots of really friggin’ stupid people are nice folks, good neighbors, worthwhile, polite, hard-working, respectable human beings, just as lots of incredibly smart people can be the sorts of sharp characters you wouldn’t trust unmonitored in your living room with your kids or your family dog.

          Second, you don’t seem to “get” the fact that really friggin’ stupid people get by in a complex world by exercising selective ignorance. There’s a boatload of stuff they’ve relegated (consciously or unconsciously) to the “T.M.I.” category, and don’t want to learn or retain any knowledge about it.

          Pharmaceutical compounding is one of those subjects, and because patients tend to spend lots of time waiting at pharmacy counters to pick up their medications, they tend pretty reliably to read those signs. They don’t want to look stupid, and therefore don’t ask either the pharmacist or the pharmacy technician at the cash register what this use of the word “compounding” means.

          And because I’m better than average among us primary care grunts at making health care matters apprehensible even to the pretty friggin’ stupid average ‘Murrican, my patients tend to ask me about such stuff, when they get a chance. As you might’ve inferred, I like pharmacists, I respect their capabilities and knowledge base, and value their informed contributions to optimum quality patient care. I wasn’t all that good in the lab either as an undergraduate or as a med student, so I hold in fairly high regard the people who can handle such stuff well.

          Definitely not stupid, y’know?

          So I can wax moderately eloquent about how good pharmacists, given the resources (not all chain pharmacies put that stuff in their pharmacist employees’ hands), can perform some pretty fancy tricks in the way of making bespoke medical formulations. Doesn’t really do much except make the patient leave my office feeling a little better-informed, but even that flicker of intellectual satisfaction seems to provide a psychologically emollient effect, and like so much else in life, the practice of medicine is very much the art of the possible.

          Those of us in the “health care” sector that’s being so spectacularly (and purposefully) wrecked by Obozocare recognize the fact that we’ve got to focus a lot of attention on that below-average-intelligence portion of the ‘Murrican population. Indeed, they tend to need good care rather more than the smarter folks do, for reasons that should be obvious. They’re our patients, and we value them even though they’re friggin’ stupid and therefore a lot of them are total obamavoters.

          It’s like having in-laws. We don’t really get to choose.

          You getting this much?

        8. What I get is that you are calling me stupid for the fourth time, and that you expect me to concur. May I remind you that it was YOU who did not get a trivial one-line joke?

          Your splenetic vitriol towards other people may be a symptom of a lurking physical problem. Have you had your liver checked, Doctor? A bad liver can make you cranky.

        9. Ever more pathogomonically, Toni (the friggin’ stupe) squeals: “What I get is that you are calling me stupid for the fourth time, and that you expect me to concur. May I remind you that it was YOU who did not get a trivial one-line joke?”

          A joke made by – and nominally for – the friggin’ stupid?

          Jeez, no. As I’d said, you’d forgotten your [/sarc] tag.

          Are you alleging that you’re not stupid? Then why do you keep proving yourself so?

        10. Providing robust presumptive evidence that she’s numbered among the “friggin’ stupid” population moiety, we’ve now got Regina mouthing off: “The only thing worse than a ‘stupid’ patient is an arrogant doctor.”

          Actually, no. Arrogant medical doctors are commonly very effective in the clinical setting, and many of them make exacting instructors and preceptors. Sometimes I have to warn patients that a guy I’m sending them to see in consultation will likely be abrasive and off-putting, “…but he’s the best specialist I know in this area, and I don’t want anybody less capable taking care of you.”

          Most physicians and surgeons who come across as arrogant can only get away with it if they’re good enough at what they do to oblige people to tolerate ’em. It’s the simpering suck-ups (see “slurpers” in the 1978 novel The House of God) – always ingratiating themselves – whom you’ve got to avoid.

          I’ve spent my life as a primary care grunt, occupying as I have the “gatekeeper” niche in the H.M.O. bureaucracy’s vision of medicine as an industry devoid of humanity, morality, and simple bloody common decency. Except to the friggin’ stupid – and then only in a forum such as this one, where any candid exposure of one’s intelligence, education, and ability to reason lucidly are taken as “arrogance” – I’m the very antithesis of “arrogant.”

        11. Regina,
          The Doctor sez:

          “I’m not arrogant, I’m not!” (stamps foot) “And so what?!”

          Grumbles, “stupid people” under his breath

        12. Blunders Toni (the friggin’ stupe): “Grumbles, ‘stupid people’ under his breath”

          Nope. Never in the physical presence of either a friggin’ stupid patient or any other friggin’ stupe (they’re thick on the ground in bureaucracies, public and private sector alike).

          For much the same reason one doesn’t make rapid movements in the presence of stinging insects, pit vipers, and skunks.

          They’re not sapient.

        13. Toni, I can attest to the fact that pharmacists once made (compounded) their own medicines. As a student, one of my summer jobs was working for a pharmacist way up north in the arctic. He was the only one around servicing a sparsely populated area, but huge in size. I watched, learned and participated in the making of the medicines. My favorite was stuffing salves in tubes.

          This was long before the police state arrived. Don’t know if such a practice is allowed anymore.

        14. With good personal insight into the procedures of pharmaceutical compounding, Anne B. speculates: “Don’t know if such a practice is allowed anymore.

          Dunno about “allowed.” Certainly, licensed pharmacists are authorized to do so. Take the average pharmacist out of a chain drugstore and have him work a shift in a medical center’s compounding pharmacy, and he’s lawfully entitled to prepare any formulation required. Moreover, he’ll commonly prove perfectly capable of doing so once he gets the chance to knock off any rust he might’ve accumulated.

          It’s simply that when a pharmacist is employed in some of those chain drugstores, they’re sharpishly discouraged by management from undertaking time-consuming formulation tasks.

          I’m not sure of the provenance, but I’ve heard that the English word “management” derives from the Sicilian term Managgia! (meaning Damn!).

          Sounds credible to me.

        15. Anne, thanks for that. What a life you have lived! Perhaps with your experience, you’ll be called upon to help get the toothpaste back in the tube, when the time comes. lol

          I think most people, after half a second of reflection, understand that before the mass production of pharmaceuticals, medicines were made to order. Prescriptions were written to detail the compounding process, not to grant special access to certain substances from “licensed” persons.

        16. Ah, talk about “friggin’ stupid” and along comes Ric as the perfect specimen.

          Ain’t we got fun?

        17. Pretending to understand a Latin tag, we’ve now got Regina receiving my statement to the effect that I’ve spent my professional life as a primary care grunt with the abbreviation: “Q.E.D.”

          Yep. It demonstrates that I considered secondary and tertiary care specialties and preferred to “specialize” in the broadest possible range of patient management, the “front line” of modern medicine.

          Not only is Regina friggin’ stupid, but you can tell she’s not a Heinlein fan.

          “*A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. *”

        18. Spews the confirmedly friggin’ stupid Ric: “No your just blow hard ego manic.”

          Quod erat demonstrandum.

          Gotta love it when they flit right into the bug zapper, don’tcha?

        19. TutsiTots! – Ric, that’s perfect.

          Can you imagine having this guy as your physician? I’d rather be sick.

        20. Proving not only that she’s friggin’ stupid but desperately in need of the sort of physician she’ll never find, the slurper-doomed Toni yaks: “Can you imagine having this guy as your physician? I’d rather be sick.”

          You will be, Toni. Assuredly, you will be.

        21. Writes the friggin’ stupid Toni: “You’re an ugly person.”

          Heck, I was an ugly baby, too. High forceps application and the OB guy incompetently applied entirely too much traction. Any obstetrical forceps has to be regarded as a “crash helmet in two parts” with a handle for guiding the fetal head through the curve of Carus in a vertex presentation.

          Something even worse happened to Frank Sinatra, I’m told. Nasty scar, though I don’t assess the cosmesis as having been all that objectionable. It’s why he always disliked being photographed from the left.

        22. Nice catch, Detective Anne. Love that link! How perfect that Tucci didn’t get that an Onion article was satirical! He’s not a close reader.

          I’m not surprised Tucci goes around the web and does this everywhere. He seems to have no intellectual life. What a waste of an education.

        23. Tucci, an honest question! Is this a case of when the cat is away, the mouse will play?
          Please don’t malign the Professor’s blog in his absence, it is tremendously disrespectful.

          BTW you may call me stupid because I stopped taking in outside information about myself about 20 years ago and I now self-correct..

        24. From Possum we get: ” an honest question! Is this a case of when the cat is away, the mouse will play?
          “Please don’t malign the Professor’s blog in his absence, it is tremendously disrespectful.”

          An open comments board will commonly “go rogue” as divergent discussions occur and extend. I doubt that Professor Tracy would much concern himself with this or any other sidebar exchanges, particularly as in this one there’s not been any manifestation of attack upon his research, his conclusions, and the sociopolitical implications of skeptical inquiry into what is unremittingly proving to be a fraud perpetrated at Sandy Hook Elementary School on 14 December 2012 by victim disarmament conspirators on the political left.

          Speaking of the real lesson to be taken were the Sandy Hook Massacre to have been reality rather than “Liberal” fascist maskirovka:

          “…politicians pass laws for Gun-Free School Zones. They issue press releases bragging about them. They post signs advertising them. And in so doing, they tell every insane killer in America that schools are their safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk.” (Wayne LaPierre, 21 December 2012)

        25. Tutsi,
          Your the one Ranting here out of one side of your mouth you couldn’t pass the State Test to “Mix Compounds” and are now a disgruntled “Healthcare Slave” who worships Pharmacists and Doctors with big Egos.

          Really? Who Cares? The Topic is James dilemma here.

          Then out of the other side of your mouth your calling everyone Stupid?


          Too many Flu Shots?

          Back Off on the Flu Shots…….

        26. Thank you Tucci. It is well noted that you respect the Professor’s research. I am sorry that I cannot align with the claim that comments must ‘go rogue’ as they have here today.

          Is it not counterproductive to handle a divergent discussion by seeming to carry a big stick which you whacked people with at every opportunity?

          Actually you have put forth some good points in this comment and I would suggest that it comes across as such merely because you removed insultive, assaultive language and you moved your comment out of the superiority/inferiority complex.

          Thank you for your final comment, it has been well received.

        27. Writes Possum: “Actually you have put forth some good points in this comment and I would suggest that it comes across as such merely because you removed insultive, assaultive language and you moved your comment out of the superiority/inferiority complex.”

          You miss the point entirely. The frabjously stupid clowns to whose idiotic, abusive, entirely ad hominem yammerings I was making reply WARRANT nothing but correct assessment of whatever in hell serves such quasihuman rejects in lieu of “character.”

          If that sounds like “insultive, assaultive language” to you, then I suggest that you apply the same criteria to these stagnant-end-of-the-gene-pool slimeballs’ own pollution of these comments.

          I’m perfectly happy to maintain pertinence to Dr. Tracy’s originating content, as you’ll see in posts I’d appended previous to this Toni idiot’s feeble fumble at what she persists in thinking of as a “joke,” and even then my response had been to address her idiocy as if it were a legitimate question (as, I’ve explained, I’ve had from patients over the years).

          No good deed ever goes unpunished among flamebait vermin like these.

        28. Apparently not realizing that he has to hit the “Older Comments” button in order to read the posts I’d made prior to this game of whack-a-mole engaged by “Toni” and the rest of the friggin’ stupes infesting this Web site, Possum writes: “Apologies Tucci, but I’m not receiving your comments clearly. You are back into the superiority/inferiority complex.”

          Not one goddam little bit. Not to mention the fact that the whole inappropriate “complex” grope at psychiatrization is – while predictable – spectacularly contemptible.

          This and other kinds of off-topic explicitly ad hominem sniping comprise a set of tactics widely exercised by the Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) all over the ‘Net, and it warrants – indeed, it requires – conscientious teeth-kicking as long as needs must.

        29. That would a compliment. Tutsi is obviously a an off topic troll looking for a fight

          “Right in the Bug Zapper”

          Translation:. That means extra troll pay

        30. You are right, Ric. Your satiric sense is more fine-tuned than mine.

          Besides “douchy” is kind of misogynistic.

        31. Check this out. Scroll down to the first comment by Tutsi.

          Read the second comment.


          When asked about effects, you answered in terms of excretion — not an apt example of critical thinking.

          When told it could cause an emergency, you ask whether people really needed it, to begin with.

          This reasoning is callous and diversionary.

          It would be futile, at this point in the discussion, to expect frank answers. So, I will just express my wonderment, publicly, that you bothered to find this article, as well as the qualification to speak on it.

          In Scriptural terms, it affects your conscience, readers in good faith. Is there no Biblical qualification for that?

          Haha. He’s strung out on Abilify I guess….

        32. OMG, he’s pushing Risperdal! He helped develop it!

          Looks like Tutsi has been as unreflective and uncaring in his actions as he is in the thoughts he’s posted here.

          “Over the course of 20 years, Johnson & Johnson created a powerful drug (Risperdal), promoted it illegally to children and the elderly, covered up the side effects and made billions of dollars. This is the inside story.”

        33. Tony jerks and moans and twitches: “OMG, he’s pushing Risperdal! He helped develop it!”

          Nope. I did play a small part in Phase III of the FDA marketing approvals process for aripiprazole (eventually given the brand name “Abilify”), but the Janssen guys got risperidone (Risperdal) onto the market without any action on my part.

          Compared against the first-generation neuroleptics, the “atypical” antipsychotic drugs looked to be much less prone to adverse effects, and so they’ve largely proved, though – of course – there’s no such thing as an unquestionably and absolutely “safe” pharmaceutical product.

          Naturally enough, the “management” stupes running the big pharma companies down through the past quarter-century and more have striven sweatily to make of these proprietary compounds the sorts of “blockbuster” money-earners that previous “prescribe-on-autopilot” meds had been before they’d gone generic, doing much damage to various patient populations along the way.

          Not that the Office of New Drugs (the part of the FDA that’s supposed to police these activities under 21 CFR) has accomplished anything other than the usual bureaucratic bungle in “protecting” the public.

        34. I’m suspicious this is a tactic designed to distract and cloud from the far more important issues. It creates a wall of spam for new readers.

  30. The people who despise any debate because it will spoil their big plans have the corporations, academia, and the government – there are all sorts of hidden networks and alliances. If you know where to look, you can find evidence of this… If you can read between the lines, there’s a lot more to this than some jerk at the Daily News.

    “Harmful Speech Online >


    The project seeks to inform and strengthen efforts by governments, companies, and civil society to address hate speech online without impinging on freedom of expression, and in its first year will focus on:
    Developing research methods and protocols to enable and support robust cross-country comparisons.
    Studying and documenting country experiences, including the policies and practices of governments and private companies, as well as civic society initiatives and responses.
    Building and expanding research, advocacy, and support networks.

    Analytic Lens of Research

    Over the course of the coming year, we plan to develop country specific case studies in Brazil/Colombia and India. Special attention will be paid to two modes of redressing the problem. First, the role of legal and public policy initiatives, including hate speech laws, in mitigating hate speech online, and the impact of the resulting incentives on the behavior of formal and informal community groups as well as social media platforms. Second, methods to diminish hate speech (or its effects) that don’t rely on companies or governments, including strategies and intervention employed on the ground. The first mode will enable us to study top-down approaches to addressing problems of harmful speech online, and the second highlights bottom-up and grassroots perspectives.

    This research will evaluate the impact of hate speech online and its capacity to catalyze social exclusion in case studies carried out in Brazil, Colombia, and India. Examining hate speech through the lens of social exclusion, including perspectives from both practice and policy, will offer a path to evaluate the capacity of harmful discourse to trigger violent acts and cause further exclusion of particular groups based on on socio-economic and political status.

    Hate speech creates discord in the community, harms the target group, and infringes upon equality. It has also been found to precede outbreaks of mass violence, discrimination and social exclusion. Furthermore, when hate speech is permitted to propagate, it encourages a social climate in which targeted groups are denigrated and discriminatory treatment is able to take root. Thus, the presence and admission of hateful discourses influences outward actions in ways that can perpetuate and aggravate structural inequalities.

    The outcome of this research will be used to inspire and suggest new alternatives for designing and implementing future programs for multiple stakeholders, including government, the private sector, academia, civil society, and local communities.”

    1. You know, it makes no sense that most people have a need to eliminate hate speech. You are going to find plenty of it in the comments sections everywhere anyway. Nobody is more hateful than those who like to attack people sticking up for someone who espouses unpopular ideas. But that isn’t what these ban-the-word folks are after, clearly. They want to be a Soviet elite who can pass of what is and is not acceptable. You can be as anti-Moslem as you like – but don’t touch the sacred cows. The nomenklatura will be carefully vetted so that only orthodox views are allowed, and violations of their edicts will merit a stay in Siberia. What is sought is the power of life and death, basically.

  31. From University Press (FAU’s Finest News Source)

    Comments here are amazingly ignorant and uninformed. Comment from CW Wade is as expected.

    This is the only comment I can recommend:
    “I’m quite delighted to see that Dr. Tracy will be departing FAU, if indeed that is the case. Free-thinking individuals with intelligence and moral courage don’t belong in the cesspool of conformity that modern academia has become.
    Yes, for people like Sonny critical thinking is far too much to demand. It’s easier just to throw a little tantrum. Thus are the times.”

    1. Anne, Thanks for linking. I thought Peter Klein’s comment from over there was worth repeating, too:

      Peter Klein on December 17th, 2015 2:34 am

      Point of correction; where you state, “…Tracy sent them a letter demanding proof that their son Noah’s existed…” there’s no mention of what that letter was in response to. You see, Mr. Pozner had filed a DMCA takedown request through Professor Tracy’s ISP to force the removal of a photograph of Mr. Pozner’s son, widely disseminated in the media; a legal claim. One could argue that it was a cheap shot that had absolutely nothing to do with protection of innocence. But that’s beside the point.

      My guess is that, what prompted Professor Tracy to respond to the DMCA claim by requesting some proof the boy in the photo was indeed his son and had indeed died is the problematic issue of Mr. Pozner filing the claim using an alias. The DMCA process requires that a claimant use his/her real identity. Filing a claim using an alias constitutes perjury. It’s possible the letter was sent to Mr. Pozner to establish certain facts relevant to potential fraud.

      And now we see the ultimate conclusion of the act of filing that DMCA request. Had Mr. Pozner taken issue with use of his purported child’s image and the DMCA claim resolved that matter, what purpose does lobbying for his firing serve? Could it have been a procedural retort on the checklist of certain people perpetrating a fraud?

      What people, certainly academics might need to remember is how simple a matter it is for a person to misrepresent matters and even his own identity. With the benefit of a claims process that favors the claimant and requires nothing to substantiate the claim, anyone can be targeted in a smear campaign, a more elaborate operation or just for kicks. It helps to have friends in the media and a disgruntled state watching from the sidelines.

      1. Toni, thanks for posting this. In my rush I neglected this excellent comment from Peter Klein.

        Not only is James Tracy on public trial here. So are the rest of us who cherish liberty and the value of limited government.

  32. This is a 5 minute video by AP media producer Ted Shaffrey. He’s got good equipment and the scenes are revealing. People with lanyards and water bottles, many acting for the camera. Veronique Pozner is there and only when she sees the camera pointed at her does she start acting. She sure does not look like a mother with a dead son inside the school. We see and hear men running behind a building speaking a foreign language. A narcotics team is there too indicating a drill.

    1. What foreign language did you hear? I heard a New England accent – maybe Boston.

      It’s hard to imagine all these people hanging around with their small children, with the police keeping them at bay with weapons. But the assumption is that they stick around because they might have other children in the building? I remember when my dog, beloved in the neighborhood, was hit by a car. The neighbor mom wanted to make sure her kids did not see it. Now imagine a parent not knowing if bodies would be brought out from the building. Makes no sense (unless for the atmospherics) to hang around with your small children. Don’t real parents put themselves in that situation? No, guess not. They have been overwhelmed with pity, compassion and curiosity, at some remove. In a way, I think nobody expects any bodies to be brought out. Is it possible that at some level the majority of people believe they are witnessing make-believe?

        1. I hear what you mean. I see some said Korean or Japanese but they are white. So here is my personal take on it, having been in Hungary – it is either Hungarian or Turkish (which sound alike). I’ll have my in-house Hungarian speaker listen to it. The Turkic languages developed along the silk road and sound similar, that’s why.

        2. I also feel that when you are filming something where you might not want actors to be recognized as anyone’s neighbors, you’d go with a foreign cast except for speaking parts, where they have to be military and intelligence people so you know they won’t tell tales out of school. Whether that is true here, I don’t know.

          Have you noticed lately how many movies are made in Hungary? They have a long tradition of films and some of the original Hollywood moviemakers came from there. Now they are back in business. Not to say this settles it —

        3. That’s VERY good. Could be. This is a growth industry. Lots of stock footage to shuffle as new events are produced.

        4. Okay, after all that – my Hungarian speaker, just allowed to hear but not see the article – said it was not Hungarian. So that can be ruled out, as far as i am concerned.

          Also – So the Altaic languages and the Finno-Ugric do not necessarily overlap all that much, but the reason I thought they might fit together has to do with Ottoman roots – my parents-in-law, native Hungarian speakers, visited in Turkey and always felt frustrated at hearing it – because people sounded like Hungarians, but the vocabulary (with the exception of a few loan words from Ottoman occupation for centuries) is totally different.

          As for Finnish, it might fit the appearance of the armed men, but although, like Hungarian, it is Finno-Ugric, and has some common vocabulary, I have no idea how it sounds.

          Korean and Japanese originated near Mongolia and so did some languages that went west on the Silk Road – they hypothetically have been grouped together. Clearly the armed men are not East Asian in appearance – but a lot of other possibilities.

          My problem is that I have no way to verify that this spoken foreign language clip is genuine. Did it appear in the main stream media as it does here, only enhanced?

        5. I disagree. It does not sound like Hebrew. I did hear a word that is Hungarian – “Jo” (pronounced Yo) which means “good” – but still not sure. The cadence sounds Asian, however. So maybe more eastward on the silk road.

          Of course, we cannot be sure the soundtrack is genuine can we?

        6. I can’t make it out. I’m pretty good with languages. I mentioned Hebrew because it is true that they are participating in these as well as providing training on a routine basis.

          I have heard of some Ukrainian involvement as well. Without better sound I can’t identify it.

        7. Well, given the circumstance, they could be Turkish, Chechen, Ukrainian, or even Russian (potential rebel types). It’s really difficult to say.

          I think the footage is from another drill conducted earlier and spliced in for effect. They were trying to get footage, not practice. The crowds behind them wouldn’t be there if it was a practice.

        8. If that was a Japanese reporter speaking, was the sound added afterwards or was he close up to the running men in uniforms carrying weapons? If so, and this was a real event, why was he allowed onto an active shooter scene? For heaven’s sake, he could have been killed. Or not. All theater, albeit a dangerous one.

        9. Yeah, its like the time they were caught running footage of riots in Greece and trying to claim it was Russia. Apparently they couldn’t tell Cyrillic letters from Greek. Idiots!

    2. Anne, yeah, I’ve seen that before. The guys play acting with the guns are obviously acting out a drill scenario. It is even odder with the kids and everybody just walking around. Some of the “cops” don’t know how to carry firearms.

      Suddenly, it’s dark. Why are all those people still there? In a real event, it would be over by noon. The wounded and dead would be removed to a hospital. The crime scene guys would process the scene. The others would be dismissed. Why pay for hundreds of cops?

      As we’ve said many times, it was a drill. A “made for TV production”. There was some talk of NATO or even Russian troops participating in a drill. I can’t tell, it could even be Hebrew.

      Just like in Boston they may have invited Israeli forces to train the cops. That is an established routine these days. Usually they send them to Israel. It is sponsored by the ADL.

      There have been multiple drills at different times. Just like the footage of the raid at St. Rose, they just splice it in. They are going for impressions, not accuracy.

  33. This is distressing – forcing Dr. Tracy out over exercising his Constitutional rights? The only one doing any “harassing” is this person “Lenny.” Does he even work? He spends an inordinate amount of time trolling the Internet, it seems to me, “tracking down” any mention of SH. The administration of FAU is now cowed by an “editorial” this Lenny person wrote who claims Tracy is harassing HIM? That’s rich. I would think that Dr. Tracy has a case for cyberstalking – because he’s not the one following “Lenny” – it’s the other way around.

    Hang on to these stories, do some screen shots, because, hopefully, we will at some point regain our senses as a “free” nation, and those who buckled to the hysteria, such as the spineless admins at FAU, will be held up to the ridicule that they will so rightly deserve. Remember the hysteria surrounding the McCarthy hearings? Remember the McCarran interment camps? Remember Nixon’s enemy’s list? Not forgotten. And neither will this.

    Dr. Tracy, I wish you well.

    1. I think you have hit on my own main objection to claims of harassment by Lenny, as well as the notion that he is entitled to relief for libel and slander or to be able to make such a stink he can get someone fired because he has experienced discomfort.

      A so-called injured party can ignore things, but not when they are closely tracking things being said. Is there an analogy for what Lenny has been doing (presenting as a wronged party when in fact it is he is stirring up trouble)? Is he like the guy in traffic who colludes with another driver to force you to rear-end him? That’s how I see him.

      We the people have been bombarded with images of terror attacks which, once closely scrutinized, seem to make much less sense than when they are first encountered in the kind of breathless, 24/7 news cycling (holding all the attention until the next one comes along).

      In order for us to say that we have a free society, we have to be able make frank and incisive comments about what has poured into our living rooms and into our children’s ears (both at home and at school). There has to be a strong countervailing force to the massively promoted fear-mongering, not monolithic itself, but immunized for all time against prosecution. It is what our forebears dreamt of in their prison cells awaiting execution for publishing (for instance) the Bible in the local language, rather than Latin.

      If we cannot process news that slams us regularly, break it down rationally, then we are being asked for blind faith in our leaders and to endorse their supposed protective reactions to these events. We are being asked by the Lenny types to betray the founding principles of our country. We are asked to swallow things whole like babies rather than rip into them with our teeth and spit them out if they are rotten. They don’t call the tv a boob tube for nothing.

      1. Musings, I understand your concerns. I think, in this instance, that “he” is “they”. I also think that, at a deeper level, it is more modeling. It is designed to establish a new standard for critical thinking. We are not to question what is presented to us by sanctioned sources.

        People are easily manipulated. They appeal to emotion and attempt to divide people into “believers” and “Heretics”. Then they fan the flames and use the dupes to attack the miscreants. Apparently, it works.

    1. Too bad MSNBC only has a handful of viewers. With a larger audience this kind of madcow criticism may actually inspire a few do their own research instead of taking agency scripted memos at face value.

      1. I love how she “invents” a conversation in which Trump congratulates Alex Jones on his Sandy Hook research.

        Alex Jones! who disappeared the article about Amazon suppressing NDASH.

        So she disregards the story and fills it in with innuendo to make it stretch to Donald Trump, because he is her real prey.

        All of MSNBC seems real afraid of Trump. They can’t seem to ridicule him fast enough.

        1. They pay her big money to do this. So the “GLB” crowd is represented by this tool and A.C., what about the cannibals. it isn’t fair. We should write the station and demand that they renounce their queer privilege. This could very well be a micro-aggression.

          I find it hard to believe that anyone actually watches this stuff.

    2. I actually think this is positive press despite Maddow’s repeating the lie about ‘harassment,’ which was only James Tracy following of copyright claim dispute protocol. The media has yet to fully understand that more americans respect at least some basic postures of Trump’s and that the parallel between some of the lies about Trump and those about Tracy will more likely cause people to investigate instead of ignore, especially into an event a third of them already have major questions about. Of course, it’s the characterizations about Trump which are mostly the yellow journalism; some claims about him addressing some people have some truth to them.

      This claim that James Tracy ‘harassed’ Lenny Pozner has none.

      1. Recynd, I am replying to your comment much later in this string. When these get this long my computer doesn’t like it for some reason, and the latency gets so bad that it takes too long to type anything.

        You asked about responsibility for other’s opinions. Most blogs, including this one, have disclaimers. “The opinions expressed…..etc.”. So, they are not James’ opinions.

        On the other hand, if an individual actually accuses someone of something or causes harm to someone by way of a comment, in theory they could be sued. A little careful wording should suffice to protect a commenter.

        Of course when someone brings a suit for damages they have to prove they were damaged. A person can also sue for declaratory relief. In this case a “cease and desist” order could be issued. If there is an objection a judge could decide that.

        He is actually (and I use the word “he” here constructively), using the administrative complaint/disciplinary system to punish James. He is using his alleged emotional injury as the cause. He is seeking to garner support using the herding instinct and appeals to emotion.

        I’m pretty sure that the groundwork for this was laid long before this latest push. Everyone involved already knows what they are going to do. There will be a show trial followed by a first class execution. All nice and proper.

        From there a decision will have to be made. They are hoping to claim victory, use this as an example, and move on.

  34. Tim Hunter has done some interesting research on the photographs of victims and dates which those were uploaded to the internet preceding the event.

    He also identified older pictures of Noah which contradict the age sequence of Noah portrayed on 12/14/2012- This may be why we never see any video of Noah’s twin sister do we ?

    1. Tim did an excellent job of sleuthing out Lenny Pozner and his partners in crime. Lenny succeeded in getting Tim’s YouTube videos removed and I don’t think anything has been added to his webpage in over a year. Thankfully, there are still lots of very incriminating photos still there, and many of them show blatant fraud by the Associated Press as the creation dates are well before 12/14/12:

      My personal favorite is one that shows police blocking off Yogananda street on 12/14/12, but the actual creation date of this photo was July 10, 2008!

      1. There are so many red flags to grab our attention, had totally forgot about the poor mother who frantically pleaded to remove her child’s picture from the story –

        “Even more shocking than SIPA press having these photos, is the inclusion of both Allison Wyatt and Lily Gaubert. To be perfectly clear, Lily Gaubert was not listed a Sandy Hook victim. A photo of Gaubert was, however, featured by the media for about 3 days after the shooting, until Gaubert’s mother spoke out as you can see here.”

        Divide and conquer is their goal. Only those tooting the party line as in the lies of hands up don’t shoot, radical illegals and global warming are allowed freedom of speech.

        1. Skirt, we mustn’t forget that the drill is not over. They are still assessing the effectiveness of controlling the dialog. Perfecting their “art” if you will.

          If this tactic proves ineffective they’ll try another. Think BMB. For some ridiculous reason that one hasn’t had the staying power of this one. Pitiful as it was, it doesn’t seem to be causing as much trouble.

          After that they seem to have gone for volume rather than “quality”. They churn them out at a rate that makes it hard to fully dissect them before the next.

        2. Profound. The Drill is still not over and all the other drills since are just part of the passion play.

          The writers are writing a we speak.

          Is this just for Us? Nobody else seems to care…

        3. I never correct my spellings for I figure you all get I missed an “S” as in “as” and just say “hey, It’s just Ric”..haha

        4. Ric, I’m following in your footsteps. My spelling lately has been sloppy too. It’s funny, I look it over and can’t see what’s missing until later. Too much time on the computer. Time for a break.

  35. I posted a comment with a video clip yesterday. It seems to be enjoying an extended Langley stay. Not posting the video again, but it was a very clear 5 minute segment from that infamous day by a media producer working for a large outfit.

    V. P. – as in the grieving mother – is there and only when she sees the camera pointed at her does she start acting. She does not look like a mother with a dead son inside the school. It could even convince the most fanatical fans of the official story that this “mother” is not the same grieving person they portray in msm these days.

        1. Well, they probably decided against contracting it out. They had some footage in the can and somebody walked down the hall and retrieved it.

          There is a whole new level of gullibility associated with these things. I suspect that’s how we keep finding pictures of past actors in other scenarios. Making “reality” is like that.

          I’m surprised we haven’t seen that girl from “Wag The Dog” peering from around a corner in San Bernardino.

  36. People might consider contacting the Electronic Frontier Fund as they are dedicated to defending free speech on the internet, and what we see here is an innocent person being railroaded based on a false copyright infringement claim. The fair use clause is intrinsic to the defense of free speech and FAU is wholly attacking americans’ First Amendment rights by supporting not only ‘Lenny Pozner’s’ false claim of infringement, but also by leading a witch hunt based on totally false claims of harassment.

    If these aggrieved parties are so certain James Tracy acted unlawfully then why don’t they prosecute him?

    Or is the repression of free speech really their goal…

  37. I don’t know how many years James has been teaching at FAU, but if it looks like he really might otherwise lose his position, he may be able to garner a “golden handshake”: that is, take an early retirement (with full benefits), plus a juicy bonus of some amount as an incentive to leave quietly. Many schools do this in order to get rid of teachers they no longer deem an asset (some of the best instructors leave this way). It’s cheaper in the long run, and it “gets rid of the problem”.

    This would be preferable to just being canned, especially if the writing’s on the wall. (My husband mentioned this after I told him what was happening to Dr. Tracy; he has seen it many times over his career.)

    1. Recynd77, I have read that professor Tracy has been with FAU since 2002.

      As an aside, Deanna Spingola has again been commissioned to join this new assault on SH facts. She’ll be speaking words of wisdom Tuesday on Republic Broadcasting Network. Today she tried to explain to a caller about the Delphi technique. It was hilarious. She managed to get my head spinning. She’s not been called Delphi Deanna for nothing.

      1. 2002; that’s when my husband began at his current school.

        The Board of Trustees (at least here in CA) can make any exit deal they want with instructors. Dr. Tracy may not qualify for full benefits, but he’s certainly accrued a hefty chunk, plus he could get a pay-off to go quietly (as I said before). He’d probably have to sign a non-disclosure agreement, but that’d be a small price to pay compared to losing everything, and a legal battle besides. He’s got a young family to think of.

        Prayers can only help. And knowing that, in any case, HE’S IN THE RIGHT is something.

        Damn these fascists to hell.

        1. At the institution where I am employed, the prez recently fired two tenured faculty and told the legal team to just deal with it.

          What I find shocking here is that Dr. Tracy’s “harassment” was verifying ownership of a photo that an alias (Lenny) claimed owned rights to the photo. Why would Lenny use an alias? Why would Lenny have a fake death certificate? Isn’t that a felony?

        2. If Lenny is from Langley, they are immune. To my knowledge no one has seen this entity or heard him speak. We have only been presented with two or three photos, could be anyone. “Lenny” even decided to head for Florida instead of attending his alleged son’s funeral in Connecticut. Perhaps he attended the one in Pakistan instead. Or perhaps he does not exist.

          Or, perhaps he was waiting for Noah to be brought to Washington state. Veronique stated that Noah was going to be dug up (words like that) and transported west when she was ready to move. A movie could be made about Veronique, Lenny and Noah. Anderson can play himself.

        3. I’ve heard Lenny (or someone claiming to be Lenny) speak to a group of Truthers, sometime in 2013, I think. He called into a round table discussion to “answer questions”. He, naturally, stuck to the party line, while Truthers (I think it was Kelley from OK(?), Jeff C., RedPill, that group) asked him (or “hammered him”, depending on your view) questions. It wasn’t productive.

          Lenny also had a Google+ page that would change, in relation to this back and forth with Truthers…the two (“Lenny” and the Google+ page) were definitely connected.

        4. Recynd77, I have not heard about this round table conference. Did they all meet in person or by some electronic means? Kelley from Tulsa said she had spoken to him on the phone. I am just wondering if anyone has seen a video of Lenny, seen him in person or heard him speak in person. They can create any character they wish behind a phone and on the Internet.

          Wolfgang said one person claiming to be Lenny came to where he lives, but did not make it through the security gates. Until they can positively prove that this Lenny exists as a real person connected to the people they tell us, I’ll remain very skeptical about this character.

          So far all we know about him is what we are told by the propaganda meisters; he’s got P. O. box addresses, a few photos, a voice on the phone, taking down videos on the Internet and other claims of infringements, and a name in msm opinion pieces. It screams of intelligence agencies.

        5. It was an electronic round table (Google Hangouts [so aptly named, don’t you think?], I believe), that was then posted/simultaneously posted on YouTube. I don’t remember if we saw “Lenny” or just heard him; many people used avatars instead of their own face. I think KateSlate was there, too. Just to clarify, I was not a participant, just a viewer.

          I remember thinking it was a strange match: Lenny, the IT schlub (no offense meant to IT folks), paired with hoity-toity Ms. UN attorney (or whatever Veronique is)? She certainly has gone through a husband or three. Didn’t Noah have a twin? Veronique has an elder daughter (college-aged at the time), too, if I recall, that’s some sort of a self-stylized social media whiz. There was some family drama between this daughter and Veronique that was revealed (Twitter posts, I think). It’s been a couple of years, and my recall isn’t what it used to be.

        6. Recynd77, I have recently been emailing with a like minded person and we discussed the strange alliance of Veronique and Lenny. It seems like a complete mismatch. The odd couple. I looked up her first husband and he seems real enough and many grades above the character Lenny. He resides in the DC area. Veronique was touting a move to Washington state where other family members live, and good ole Lenny lives in Florida. If they are a happy couple, why not live together or in the same state at least?

          The Pozners reportedly lived in Westchester before relocating to Connecticut. Veronique’s parents lived in Westchester. For such a stylish woman with a cosmopolitan background, why is she working at a hospital in blue collar New Britain and driving a car with a faulty engine? It does not add up.

          Dr. Eowyn examines the odd couple and their children here:

        7. Okay, I remembered right: poor little Noah’s jaw had been blown right off. The family had an open casket in spite of this, with a hanky covering the wound, to show the horribleness of gun violence. (Per Dr. Eyowyn’s article at FoM). However, in a recent article (maybe the Sun Sentinel’s or Daily Mail’s), it clearly stated that little Noah’s face was pristine, with no hint of the vicious damage below (or something to that effect).

          So Dr. Tracy loses his job and reputation over HYPERBOLE and outright lies? Niiice. Welcome to Amerikkka 2.0.

          And WE’RE the heartless ones. Bleh.

        8. If my memory serves me, Lenny was in Florida at the time of the pageant. He didn’t make it to the funeral. Veronique said some very weird things, including how Lenny liked having a Christmas tree. She also said that she was a convert.

          At one point it was said that she was losing her house to foreclosure. Someone went to the address and said that it was a rental and she had cleared out. Nothing was there but an empty dumpster.

          It was said that she planned to move to Seattle. I met a woman once who was arrested for theft from an old neighbor of mine who had Alzheimer’s that could have been her twin sister. Weird.

          At some point in the unraveling saga we had the tattoo. Then we had the posts on the dating service. Some said that “Lenny” and her were on the rocks. I made no effort to follow up on that.

          The ironically named “Honr” thing operates from a PO Box in a Mailstop or Mailbox in Newtown. Kelly claims to have had several conversations with him as well as meeting him once, I believe.

          Just like Oswald in Mexico it isn’t possible to determine if its the same “Lenny” every time. Someone researched this and came up with a list of somewhat shaky business ventures, some of them in Florida.

          Others have traced Veronique to having connections with the Swiss and efforts at worldwide disarmament. The irony is probably lost on many that the Swiss have the most liberal (in a positive sense) gun laws and Europe and the lowest crime rate.

          There are several confusing issues with that link. She had a facebook page that had someone else’s picture (blond), but her “particulars” matched. Not to put to fine a point on this but it practically screamed “spook”.

          As I’ve said before, we should think in terms of “characters”. There is little or no similarity between the actions of these characters and other normal human beings. In fact, they could have used the storyline from this in a remake of “Attack of the Body Snatchers”.

          I definitely have my suspicions but haven’t seen the proof yet. I have been told by a reliable source that the “Parkers” are now in Seattle. I have a Mormon friend who is going to check that out for me.

          This passive-aggressive victimhood is VERY reminiscent of another groups MO. This never-ending pity fest and money laundry has outlived its curb appeal. If the funds keep washing in like tides on the ocean, it will show that the crops are safe in Afghanistan and the vaults are likely full in Virginia. Those who would actually be contributing to this would have perished through dehydration from crying for three years straight. This has had a more successful run than Jim and Tammy-Faye.

        9. I don’t think submitting a claim to WordPress/Automattic under a pseudonym could be considered a felony since it’s not an official government agency.

          I’m wondering if the pseudonym was part of what is appearing in retrospect to have been a trap. By using a fake name ‘Lenny Pozner’ put Dr. Tracy in the position of not only having to ask for proof of copyright ownership (sometimes pictures make their way into the public discourse that aren’t from a family directly and copyright ownership is determined by who owned the camera that took it I believe) but also of who the person actually was.

        10. Note that the party signing for the certified letter was Mr. Pozner’s “Agent.” The address is to a postal box outlet address.


        11. As to who signed, Recynd is probably right. That rather defeats the whole purpose of sending something certified. There should be another paper trail from the Mailstop to “Lenny”. Surely they wouldn’t just let him pick it up without a custody trail.

        12. Signature is EJ
          Printed name is Ella

          Ella Jurgielewicz owns the UPS Store at 261 S. Main St. in Newtown. She is also listed as a supporter of St. Rose of Lima Church.

        13. Recynd77, I’m having fun. Meet Ella’s husband – a funky drummer who could be a poster child for Francine’s Dream Jam Band.

          Interestingly, he also has a job with a company that manufacturers postage meters and mail room equipment. From their website: “supplies innovative user-friendly solutions for physical and digital communications management”.

          Disclaimer – just a coincidence, not that this has anything to do with a recent mailing.

      2. Groan!. Not her again. The dynamic duo, her and C.W. Wade. I can see her peering over her pince nez’ and rattling her jewelry. They are making an example of him, no doubt.

        What a pitiful, disgusting country this has become.

        1. I am forevermore baffled by Deanna’s cozy relationship with the likes of the liar CW Wade, not to mention the screamer, Keith Johnson.

          I recently went to CW Wade’s site, to try and get an understanding of the argument. What I found was a point that puts him at loggerheads with Mrs Spingola.

          It appears that Wade does not agree with the revisionists of the Holocaust (which is one of Spingy’s claim to fame). As a matter of fact, it was listening to her that caused me to research the subject (and I found that she is pretty much spot on with that subject).

          So, how is it possible that she and Wade are so cozy? How could he associate with such a hater, but then denounce anyone who reconsiders the media/government lies regarding WWII and the Holohoax?

  38. For Those who understand. We are at the point where we are the feet of the statue.

    TPTB are mixing the Clay with the Iron to form, in their Possessed Minds, a coalition of Humanity via Mass Migration from the Old world to the New world.

    The Final coalition will last an Hour (1 year) with 10 Kings nobody appointed.

    Well, Somebody did….

  39. Apparently Wolfgang Halbig’s organization had a forensic expert determine that Avielle Richman’s identity is actually that of Lennie Urbina- the expert has impressive credentials.

    I should also point out that Avielle Richman’s monument stone, with Chase Kowalski’s, was only placed in the village cemetery relatively recently and likely not until sometime in 2015. There was not even a grave marker preceding their monument stones as was done with the four other children in that area (Wyatt, Green, Pinto and Bacon) . A friend’s grave is very close to the children that were buried at that cemetery so I
    have seen the other graves that at least had markers placed shortly after December of 2012.

  40. This article was posted at PJMedia today:

    It is about an article in the New York Times that was repeatedly changed over the course of a few hours. The story was about an off-the-record meeting between Barry Soetoro and a bunch of Leftie press organs, where he confessed that he has no idea why Americans are terrified by all the terrorism going on–because he doesn’t watch cable news channels. The Times piece (on its web site) repeatedly recrafted both the text and the headline until it made Barry look good.

    Now let’s leave aside the fact that people are terrified because they think the terrorism is real, when it’s not. And leave aside Obama’s openness about not having a clue about what makes Americans tick (reminiscent of the “bitter clingers” speech). What’s important is the shameless Orwellianism this represents. That was Winston Smith’s job, after all–to change existing newspaper articles to suit the changing desires of the Party. The past must be made to look like what the present wishes it had been, for the sake of the future.

    I bring all this up in this thread for obvious reasons. MHB exists to examine and bring to light the malfeasance and misfeasance of the press, and to analyze the way the press successfully shapes the thinking of the masses, ensuring that they do not know anything that is true about any engineered event.

    James Tracy’s task in his teaching specialty is to enable his students to think critically about the way events are reported. To create an army of anti-Winston Smiths, people who can spread out and counteract the efforts of the New World Order to shape the mental context of society in false ways.

    Apparently, they have been planning a way of stopping him for some time (as lophatt wrote last night). It is possible that this is not a small, isolated matter. 1984 is closer every day.

    1. Check this out – “Star Wars Stormtroopers: What Message Do They Send?” by Laurie Garrett at CNN. It’s all about how the antiwar message was fine when we were winding down the Vietnam War, and where the imperial army was made to look bad. But now, when so many of our troops wear gear that look them and deploy all over the world – how is this good for our image? She also mentions her chumminess with military brass in various theatres of operation, and it is clear that she feels a movie theatre has no business projecting anything that mocks today’s message. It too should be military theatre, and the entertainment should speak with one voice because after all the world is watching us (and I might add paying handsomely for the privilege of seeing our movies). It’s one of the most cynical statements I have read in a long time. But very court toady imperial.

      1. “Get Leni Reifenstall on the set!”. We need more 1940’s “patriotic” films. We have a shortage of tap dancers. That peace stuff is so 60’s. We need angry zombies with veins in their teeth.

        This too, is part of the propaganda. Yes, there is no shortage of imbeciles. But some of these statements, couched as spontaneous comments, are “injected’ into the mix.

        Goebells would blush.

  41. 1) Alter Net ran a hit piece on Dr. Tracy yesterday. It was titled PYSCO PROFESSOR FIRED… The comments bordered on vulgar.
    I submitted a post suggesting that there were problems with the “Official Story”. I mentioned the lack of EMT’s and Med a Vac teams as an example.

    I was pounced on immediately..Accused of be a bridge troll, scum bag and that my wife was a whore.

    I asked one poster if she was a paid shill for Mr.Pozner’s firm Honr. The abuse continued.

    I woke up to find that I have been banned from the site. I’ve post there for over 5 years without a problem.

    2) No matter how the chips fall, I hope Dr. Tracy is able to provide “his side of the story”. As it stands, the public understands what it reads in the Sun Sentinel, Rachel Maddow, and the hit pieces being pushed hard by the MSM.

    There is more to the story than the Crazy Professor stalking dead kids parents. I am uncertain as to the how, but the story needs to get out.


      1. I’m guessing your talking to me. I am talking about the termination of James Tracy last week. I’m relaying the experience I had commenting on AlterNet.

        Rachel Maddow piece

        Sun Sentinel Editorial

        I wrote a few paragraphs regarding the impact this termination will have on Tenure in the State of Rick Scott’s Florida, but it got deleted. I’m not rewriting it, but believe it is a big deal.

        What’s with the “feeding the troll” comment?

  42. This is ALL wrong.

    It’s Not James Tracy fault or ANY of Us why we feel this way.

    When these events occur where we call “Foul”, it’s not because “We” are “Crazy”.

    It’s because the MSM, lock step with Government, present these little “Tragedies” as the worst “B” Movie Production Possible.

    No Common Sense Questions are Ever answered. The Story line keeps changing day by day. “There was 3 killers” No 2 killers, it was a white pick up truck..No a Black Van with Nuns….

    It’s THEIR FAULT not ours why we question this nonsense.

    I don’t write huge comments and there is a lot of writers here.

    I’d some here to just go through all the events one by and show all the irregularities to each Event and Why we Question it.

    We are NOT Crazy. They are hiding the truth and making it up as they go.

    Example: Let’s go way back to AZ. The Judge was the Target. Who got the spotlight….Dummy Girl.

    Colorado like San Bernadino, like all of them, the on ground witness tell a completely different story and it just gets buried.

    3 Big White Guys dressed just like the Fed’s turn into 2 Arab people who don’t even look like the first Pic they showed us of them.

    The Shot up Car looks just like the Fed Black Car thats chasing them but with Utah Plates…Then He got 28k put in his bank acct. from some one in Utah…Really?

    This IS Why we Question this Crap.

    I rest my Case your Honor. The Burden is on the Govt./MSM.

    Judge: “Bailiff, whack his Pee Pee and throw him in the Gulag.” (cheech and Chong)

    It’s that stupid…

    No I didn’t check my spelling and don’t care

    Some one Post this argument here so the dummies of the world can read why we feel this way.

    It’s them, Not Us.

        1. Dave’s NOT Home…..But it’s Me Dave….Dave’s Not Home

          We’ll Never fit THAT on the Album Cover Blind Melon ..HAHA

        2. Dave’s not Here – lol

          Do you guys remember Hickey Off? Was that C&C, or was that Dave Peel and the Lower East Side?

    1. What troubles me is that not a single person of prominence is coming forward to challenge what is an obvious fraud. Not one pro 2a congressman or senator, nobody from the Tea Party, not Nugent, not Jesse Ventura, not the NRA, nobody.

      Has an atmosphere of fear become so insurmountable that something as absurdly fraudulent as Sandy Hook goes completely unchallenged ?

      After the IRS scandal targeting conservatives, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Sandy Hook, Benghazi and the video story, San Bernadino, Cassidy Stay blocking the bullets with her finger, the Virginia shooting – is there any doubt we have degenerated as a country into a full fledged Banana Republic ?

      1. Ray: it’s interesting you mention this. I was discussing some of these issues (not SH, but chemtrails, the UN, public schooling, SmartGrid, etc.) with my sister (who is pretty clueless, bless her), and she asked me who the public voice was for us. I didn’t want to say “Alex Jones” (apologies to his fans), and Ron Paul didn’t leap into my mind (I’ve never heard his position on chemtrails or Agenda 21 or SH anyway). She’s never heard of James Tracy or Sofia Smallstorm, and we don’t have a FOX News or MSNBC, so I was out of luck.

        We are a ramshackle group, aren’t we? Leaderless and in the minority. The fact that no groups have taken up the cause is what made me lose faith in groups generally. Same goes for those slimy politicians. They all flop around ineffectually, at best giving lip service to one cause or another.

      2. Thank you for being troubled. If indeed there is a Sandy Hook conspiracy, its most formidable achievement is not the acting at the school and the cover-up by crisis actors and corrupt public servants, but the very tight censorship thereof by all organizations that ostensibly lose through the official cover-up. To those you name, I would add liberal groups that loathe disinformation, foreign mass media, and more.

        But taking a step back, the censorship of Sandy Hook is a puny exercise compared to the masterpiece of the 9/11 censorship, where the censors managed to broadcast live to the world the Twin Towers’ terrorist controlled demolition and to cover it with Osama bin Laden’s aerial ballet.


      3. Has anyone seen the twitter attacks on the son of the forensic analyst hired by Wolfgang to examine Avielle Richman’s pictures. Wow-

        That report must have really hit a nerve. An objective detailed assessment that concluded that Avielle Richman and Lennie Urbina are one in the same. The analyst was a highly qualified experienced expert and now they are trying to make him walk back his conclusions by going after his son on Twitter ?

    2. Ric: Exactly. And it’s not just ONE of these examples, but ALL of them put together. But either I don’t explain it well enough or the person I’m talking to won’t sit still long enough for me to go through it all with them. (I guess I was the same way before I woke up.)

      I had “coffee” (she drank coffee while we visited [Mormons, sadly, don’t drink coffee]) with a sort-of likeminded friend, and she’s all in on the San Berdoo event. Why WOULDN’T a Muslim family with a 6 month old baby kill heathens at a Christmas party? In the face of that kind of denial, I’m helpless. I bet Pat could convince her; I don’t have that gift.

      1. Sometimes they can come around if you have the patience. I never try to persuade someone who is asleep. Being cryptic works better. Say something like “oh really, is that what you think?”, and let it go.

        They usually ask questions and you can use your judgement in answering them. It is a temptation to do a data dump. It won’t work. It is much better to let them become curious.

        If someone tries to argue with me I just say “hey, you have the right to believe whatever you like”. I don’t let them know if they are bothering me. Almost inevitably they come later and ask more questions.

        Many people know something is wrong. They may actually suspect several things but are afraid of where that could lead. I have some examples of particularly hard-headed people I’ve encountered. Sometimes its comical.

        Sometimes I hear “I won’t believe that. If I believed that I wouldn’t be able to function”. My retort is “so you aren’t troubled by believing a lie?”. Another is “many things in life are unpleasant, but as adults, we have to accept that knowing the ugly truth is more important than pretending to accept a pretty lie”.

        The up side of this is that really hardcore idiots will leave you alone. They may grumble but, who cares?

        1. I like to focus on the principle of the impossible: it must be deferred to. For instance, that gun in Roanoke: the gun was repeatedly fired, on screen, but the spent cartridges were not ejected. Ask the person how that is possible?

          Or, in San Bernardino, why did those two witnesses lie about seeing the killers, and they were three military-type white guys?

          At Boston, the question is how long can a guy stay conscious after having his legs blown off? And how long does it normally take him to recover?

          Such simple questions are planted seeds. Such seeds sometimes grow. Like you say, don’t dump too much information. Keep it very, very simple.

        2. Yeah, that’s sort of what I meant. Give it to them in short little mysteries and let them go away and mull it over. After a while they’ll come back with; “about that gun……?”.

          I think what happens is that we want to defend our positions. We dump everything we know in an attempt to get them to agree. That doesn’t work. The first step is to get them to question it themselves.

        3. In light of those thoughts I wonder if anyone has made a technical assessment to ascertain if a self contained “pressure cooker” bomb is capable of generating the energy that was demonstrated in Boston ?

          I am no expert on the subject but I cannot imagine that a self contained pressure cooker device could generate that level of an explosion.

        4. Well Ray, that was the first and only time I’ve ever heard of such a thing. The thing is, it isn’t possible to make one that only gets pant legs and leaves everything else unscathed.

          It isn’t hard to make something go bang. There is absolutely no way that this production wasn’t faked. Whoever wrote the script wanted to tie “runners” to “leg injuries”. In the real world, an explosion large enough to rip the legs off of people would have other bits coming off as well.

          Carlos wouldn’t have had to rip down the fence. It would have been gone. So would most of the windows and other exposed items. All that happened there was a bunch of actors performing per instruction. After that it was given to the “media” to deliver their performance.

          PeeKay does a wonderful job of exposing this. It is truly a testament to gullibility that so few seem to get it. I stayed up all night watching the charade. Not because I believed any of it, but because it was amazing how much they were willing to push the envelope.

          All of the violations, both of law and of common sense, seemed not to concern many. Short of nuking Boston there really wasn’t much more that they could have done with the material.

          Look at how quickly this has faded into the general “fear” meme. They have been churning out so many of these, granted not nearly so large and extreme, but they have gone for quantity. Before we can properly analyze one, there’s another.

          Not much has changed since Orson Welles “War of the Worlds” broadcast, I guess. Now it’s Anderson Cooper’s “Invasion of the New World Odor”.

  43. Have you all watched the latest The Real Deal video with Jim Fetzer? He reveals the real charges the Florida institution is asking Professor Tracy to answer for:

    “The official grounds (Tracy) has been given for the termination notice is that he did not file forms about his outside activities in a timely fashion.”

    Meanwhile, the lie goes out, which is amplified and echoed by aiders and abettors in all manner of media, that Tracy has been “fired” because of his Sandy Hook research.

    The whole video is worth watching as the entire matter is thoroughly aired, with highlights including the exposure of the Posners, and Fetzer’s dramatic reads of comments he wrote to different publications which were subsequently suppressed.

    You have to watch it just for Fetzers’ prodigious championship of the Professor:

    “This is McCarthyism at its worst. This is the University abdicating its responsibility to protect its faculty from external influence by becoming the instrument of a new form of totalitarianism by seeking to suppress one its best and most outstanding faculty who are blowing the whistle on malfeasance.”

    Fetzer at his best.

    1. This May get really Big.

      It’s time for the Gov/MSM to lay the cards on the table and answer some very simple common questions instead of snide as Eric Holder said:

      ” If these Hoaxers could see all the Pictures I have seen of 20 dead children riddled with Bullets they wouldn’t be talking this talk”
      Show Us? We’re Big Kids Now……

      1. Dear Eric Idle..I mean Holder

        Release the forensic photographs of the crime scene from SHE School 12-14-2012.

        Mr. Wayne Carver said “we have the Bestest photographers” so we should expect the Metadata embedded in the Pictures to be accurate.

        This Metadata will tell us what time, Date and if the Image was altered in anyway.

        Thank You, and this will clear up any misunderstanding we may had ….

        People with a Brain

        Eric Holder’s Reply: “We lost the original photographs of SHES just like NASA did of the Moon Missions”……..What? We Really Did…..

    2. Jim Fetzer starts the specifics about the termination letter around 39 minutes, but only touches on it briefly.

      I wonder if anyone can explain further to us how this works in academia, and what the implications are for Dr. Tracy’s job.

    3. Haven’t watched the Fetzer video (sorry, he’s a bit much to take these days), but being fired from a tenured position at a Florida university based on not letting them know in a “timely” manner of outside activities is laughable. It’s paperwork – not a cause to review tenure. Aside from that, this issue was ostensibly settled a long while ago between FAU and Dr. Tracy. Is FAU bringing it up yet again?

      “Outside activities” – this is akin to a professor taking on a speaking engagement and neglecting to fill out a form or tell his superiors. It’s not that big of a deal. The professor simply files the forms after the fact. Of course, FAU’s true motive is looking for loop holes to get rid of a faculty member who is bringing “undue” publicity to their school. It’s a witch hunt, as we all know.

      What a shameful situation.

      P.S. I do hope that Dr. Tracy is NOT dealing with FAU’s Human Resources dept unless it is to simply answer/file forms. Human Resources, especially at a university, is not there for the employee EVER. They are strictly there to support anything the administration (including dept heads or higher up contractual employees) wishes to achieve (whether that means hiring new employees or firing them). At no point should he ever consider Human Resources his ally or look to them for advice of any kind. I speak from experience.

      1. Yes Ramona, it’s clearly a ploy. I watched Fetzer rip a reporter to shreds last night. He is really trying to defend James, as he should. I was impressed.

        They know that James has First Amendment rights. That’s why they have decided to use this ploy. Firing someone for filing documents late is clearly ridiculous.

        I’m afraid it won’t make any difference to the administration, however. No doubt they’ve talked this over thoroughly. I know how these things go in general but I’m not familiar with FAU or any of the parties.

        It certainly says a lot about the school. They have an obligation to protect their faculty. Clearly they would rather throw them to the wolves.

    4. Toni, yeah. This is what happens when a group conspires against someone. I’ve had it happen to me. They meet, they plan, they get all their ducks in a row. THEN they give you the notice.

      There is no intention to “correct” anything. They want you gone. Of course, they wish to give the impression that they are “helping” you to be successful.

      1. Let me try to flesh this out in a general way. You are working somewhere and doing your job. You engage in discourse that a particular group does not like.

        The company you work for knows that your speech is protected. They may talk to you, etc., and try to imply that your “judgement” is faulty or you are embarrassing the company, but you have done nothing illegal.

        The management is either already predisposed to the position of the complaining group, or has been pressured by them. Either way, the decision is made to punish you. The preferred punishment is removal.

        In order to do that and make it successful (in that it won’t be overturned on appeal), some violation of existing rules or other contract must be devised. It doesn’t have to be much. Usually, some sort of “progessive discipline” must be shown to have happened.

        Depending on the conditions existing where you work, this may vary, but in general, the company will want to be able to demonstrate that they were trying to make you “successful” and took measures to accomplish that. What they hope to show is that you refused to cooperate and are, therefore, considered unsuccessful.

        This can be either “conduct” or “performance” or, in some cases, both. For professionals, up until very recently, those deemed to be “unsuccessful” were placed on some sort of Performance Improvement Plan (PIP). These involve setting goals and meeting with management to determine one’s progress.

        These things are double-edged swords. The goals are often subjective and, if the management really wants you gone they will see to it that the record indicates that your performance or conduct has not improved.

        As an aside, professional guilds, associations and unions are in many ways worse than trade unions. The membership is more likely to turn on their fellow members. Some win valuable prizes for doing this and others simply live in fear of being singled out themselves.

        The “bottom line” is that agreements are only as good as the intentions and good faith of the signatories. Should one end up in court, however, the courts tend to view all such contracts as being executed in good faith.

        So, if the management is trying to harm you unjustifiably, they normally make an offer under threat of some form of discipline. It is quite common for the employee to sign and be “protected” only to find later that nothing they could have done would have induced the management to acknowledge that.

        There are other, more subtle implications associated with this. “Management” generally reserves the right to hire, fire, administer leave, etc.. So, if there is no conduct or performance issue to exploit it is common to use Reduction in Force (RIF) eliminate positions. Of course there are tenure issues with this as well as other potentially damaging consequences to the business itself. In many cases they end up with the person they tried to terminate still there and a favorite being dismissed.

        The reason I’m writing this is because we assume this to be related to SHES. It undoubtedly is, but I doubt that will be the “official” reason. That can be problematic. In some ways the continued venom displayed by “Lenny” et al is helpful. If a linkage can be established between him (them) and the school, it may be possible to show bad faith.

        They can certainly claim that the action had nothing to do with any complaints, but it may not be believed later. I would guess that their decision to proceed could be dependent on their belief that subsequent action is likely. If a nexus can be shown between the actions of the complainers and the school they may be forced to reconsider.

        1. Lop, your description here made me shudder: this describes, absolutely, how our kids are being trained to be managed by the public schools. “Remediate, remediate, remediate” to get 100% consensus. If consensus isn’t reached, well, more remediation of course!

          Isn’t this Total Quality Management™ (TQM)?

          You’re either with us (heart and soul), or you’re OUT. Only they never come out and say it.

        2. Well Recynd, it sounds like you’re describing Demming mixed with Delphi. I think if I were giving advise to someone faced with a “PIP”, I’d challenge the very idea that it was necessary.

          Once a person signs on the dotted line they’ve acknowledged that they agree there’s a problem and it needs to be corrected. At that point the signer loses control of exactly what that means.

          None of us like to be in a confrontation (if we’re sane). This works to the advantage of the shameless and the self-righteous. By attempting to deflect the situation we end up putting ourselves in a subservient posture.

          Perhaps a better approach is to understand that those with the authority to do things, will. Then explain what you will do in that event. It levels the playing field.

          As to the Delphi Method (I hate to discuss that ever since Spingola), few are truly good at it. They use it, but they’re clumsy. There’s little doubt that school kids are exposed to our PC world in a more intensive manner than in the past. It was always there, but teachers had some latitude to encourage thought.

          Now schools are like media, simply a mouthpiece of the ruling class. TQM, is actually a pretty good system for a manufacturing environment. Most don’t read the opening paragraphs and, therefore, the rest is meaningless. It is about rewarding workers for using their knowledge and skills. Most skip the reward part.

          My description had more to do with what unethical people do to get their way. No good comes from bad intentions.

        3. Charlotte Iserbyt was the one who made the connection between TQM and public schooling (both are, in effect, behavior management, in the most Skinnerian way possible).

          I think the point you’re making is a more subtle and nefarious one: if we play by their rules, we are always the object to be acted upon. Your advice is to stay the subject, which does the acting. Excellent advice.

          My husband has refused to play along with the mandatory standardizing of college classes via “Student Success” measures: “student learning outcomes” or “student learning objectives”(“SLOs”), and the “student learning outcomes assessments” (“SLOAs”). He sat on the implementation committee (that ultimately rejected SLOs), and now, six years later, refuses to go along with the previously-rejected plan.

          The administration (as high as the college’s president), under pressure from the accreditation team, tried every “remediation” technique they had: my husband was Delphi’d, educated/trained, had classes withheld, and threatened with disciplinary action. However, he was acting from personal conviction and did his due diligence, and left THEM to have to react to HIS actions, not vice-versa.

          (All this to say that you’re totally right.)

        4. Oh, I SO relate to the TQM mention. It was a joke when I was in local gov’t, at least to me, and therefore, caused me a multitude of problems. TQM along with the Myers-Briggs COMPLETE b.s. was and is the ruination of local gov’ts who bought into it (with “bought” being the operative word here – both systems/companies made millions off of local gov’ts).

          The thing is we fight a losing battle if we have a brain in our head and wish to work in the public sector. One does NOT go against the grain/party line, or you’re gone, one way or the other (your way or their way). And by going against party line I mean anything from speaking out against waste or attempting to make things better within your own realm of work (for yourself or the public you “serve”). This goes not only for dept heads who buck the system in attempts to better it, but also, and most especially, for the rank and file. Rank and file are the easiest to get rid of.

          I will say this – I did see the AFSCME union stand up for an employee who was a member in good standing. She was despised by her boss but each time he thought of ways to get rid of her (wrote her up for the smallest of “violations,” she went to the union and the union came in and saved her job every single time. The union frightened the dept head. It was sweet to see.

        5. Ramona, what I was trying to convey about TQM is that it is one of dozens of “surefire management programs” churned out by endless legions of MBA’s from Harvard and other business schools.

          Many administrators do not devote one second to analyzing anything they are given to implement by their superiors. They are in such a rush to “me too” everything suggested by the boss. This probably accounts for their meteoric rise in status.

          As these things go, TQM was a pretty good approach for a MANUFACTURING concern. It was developed by Demming for use in post-war Japan. It actually worked pretty well there initially.

          The program is not intended for, nor will it work for, anything other than repetitive types of efforts. Further, the first principle is “casting out fear”. That means, if an employee identifies a redundancy they will not be fired. They will be rewarded, usually with a promotion.

          He clearly says this at the beginning of his first book and states that if the employer cannot do this they should not use his method. No company in the US is willing to do this. Nonetheless, they ran with everything else in his book and insisted it was the end all and be all of management.

          When it came out I was forced to go to endless statistics training, etc.. I was told that if I didn’t get on the bus I’d be looking for work elsewhere. They were having endless “PAT Team” meetings and “brainstorming sessions”. It was one of the greatest time wasters ever.

          Just as suddenly as it arrived, poof!, it was gone. There is some fascination with trying to make robots out of people. I suppose it is easier than actually learning to deal with people as they are.

        6. Lop (and Ramona): It’s the one-size-fits-all mentality…if it’s good for one sector, it must be good for all! Certainly cuts back on rational thought or liability.

          Whoever decided that the public sector should be run like the private sector had a reason for doing so (probably big bucks). We’re going to see more and more of this with the rise of public-private partnerships.

  44. Always thought the refusal to release 911 calls was a huge red flag – they are always broadcast during an event. The AP supposedly sued and there was a major production of how those terrible calls finally released could not be aired. The 911 team received a national award for fielding hundreds of calls, less than a handful of lame communications were actually released. They could not be aired as the acting was so pathetic.

    Redsilver nails it is Sandy Hook Hoax Case Closed.

        1. There are actually few photos of William Aldenberg available online for comparison. The most heavily-circulated image (below) does not come close to the many images of professional actor David Wheeler, who indeed closely resembles the militarized G-man. Nice try, though, “Metabunk.”


        2. He looks more like Wheeler than Aldenberg to me. While I certainly can’t say for sure, we know that Wheeler was in the area. We also know that they guy playing the “agent” doesn’t know how to carry a weapon.

          I thought they were going to wear him out doing the “round and round” like they did at the firehouse.

          As usual, we tend to get hung up on these scripted scenes. Those of us who know they’re drills are used to them. If you consider this a “real”, what would be the need for all the troops after the perpetrator shot himself?

          Dozens of cops, FBI agents, ATF, DHS, IDF, you name it, if not a drill, why are they there and where did they come from? After all, as stated, its simply a crime. It isn’t an invasion.

          They get paid to stage these. For the ones they plan to hype for their own nefarious purposes, they pull out all the stops. In return, they are rewarded handsomely.

        3. Sandy Hook father “Dave Wheeler,” wearing a toupée, is no other that New Hampshire FBI Special Agent (NH-24) “William Aldenberg.” As identical and unmistakable facial features prove, William/Dave Aldenberg/Wheeler is the same man appearing in photographs and videos wearing an FBI-like SWAT camouflage with the “NH-24” label, FBI Special Agent William Aldenberg (without the toupée), and of course Sandy Hook “bereaving” dad Dave Wheeler (with the toupée on).

        4. “………this has been thoroughly debunked…that’s why it’s been retracted. That is NOT David Wheeler but FBI agent William Aldenberg.”

          Actually, you’re 100% wrong. That bogus “Bill Aldenberg FBI” story was itself DEBUNKED in PART 2 of the “David Wheeler Sandy Hook” VIDEO HERE:

          “William Aldenberg” is nothing more than a last-ditch attempt by DHS to fool Americans with another lie.

          Why can’t this “FBI Special Agent, Bill Aldenberg” handle a gun? FBI sends him to Sandy Hook carrying two (2) rifles at once, yet the man cannot handle a gun? Whoever the man is (dressed in army surplus), his outfit isn’t marked “FBI” and he’s obviously never handled a gun before, since he carries it by the magazine, horizontally, pointed behind him at women/children. No law enforcement officer walks around brandishing a rifle at women/children. That doesn’t happen in real life. Unless the person doing it is just an Actor (with no clue about guns). See video for more reasons “Newtown SWAT Sniper” is a fake agent.

          For False Flags, why can’t DHS hire Actors who’ve handled a gun at least once in their lives?

        5. Wait a minute….the new “theory” is that Aldenberg is a younger Wheeler??

          What about his face shape, his cleft chin?? What?? Are you guys really serious about this? Omg LOLOL

          Ok, carry on, you guys are doing a great job

        6. I couldn’t even get through this whole video. You guys have taken opinion….passed it off as “fact” (using a lot of words and analogies to muddy the waters) and take any clarifications as “shill myths” and dismissed every single thing with an opinionated theory. You have absolutely ZERO proof of anything…at all. You talk about photoshopped ears and then dismiss the fact that “younger David Wheeler” (William Aldenberg) has those same ears, just gloss right over it. I feel really bad for the people who are getting sucked into this, because whoever put this video together knew exactly how to provide smoke and mirror diversions…it’s just scary.

          These families will never be free of you. They could dig up each child and line them up in the town square right in front of you and a day later you’d have a new video with new “facts”.

          One thing that has NEVER been explained is whether these parents are actors playing couples, or actual couples acting. Bevause I’ve seen both theories, like you guys can’t make up your minds.

          On top of that….where are the hundreds of family members per child (both “imaginary” that didn’t exist, and actual…the ones in the photos) that have…every single one of them…agreed to follow this “hoax” TO THE LETTER? Since it’s been three years and not one peep. It’s one thing to find “actors” to fill roles of “grieving parents”, it’s quite another to find “actors” who’s entire REAL families (in laws and everything) will agree to go along and NEVER say anything. Because you know every single member of these highly publicized families have been contacted and they have, every single on of them…”stuck to this story” for three years. Not one single falling out with a family member who decided to “expose” the “ruse” . For 20 children…thousands of family members in total…

          Where’s the videos “exposing” these ENTIRE “actor” familes?

          Like I said, great job guys…keep on keeping on
