Coincidence? Perhaps (Not)
On November 10, 2015 Florida Governor Rick Scott visited Florida Atlantic University for an early morning meeting of his cabinet alongside political appointees comprising Florida Atlantic University’s Board of Trustees and their managerial candidate, FAU President John Kelly. The meeting was chronicled in official docs and via a fawning Palm Beach Post report.
Perhaps ironically, it was also on November 10 that FAU administrators began disciplinary proceedings against tenured Professor James Tracy for operating this website.
Established in 2012, MemoryHoleBlog has sought to provide a platform for what would become thousands of readers and commenters throughout the world to share information and analyze news reportage of complex events, including mass shootings and similar instances of potential state-sponsored “false flag terror.”
In early 2013 FAU Dean Heather Coltman, under the direction of FAU’s upper-level administrators and lawyers, requested that Tracy submit his blog to the university for FAU’s editorial approval. Tracy responded that the blog constituted the nonprofessional free speech activity of a private citizen, and that such a request was effectively a prior restraint.
Fearing they might in fact violate Tracy’s First Amendment rights, shortly thereafter FAU administrators disciplined the tenured professor for not having a “disclaimer” to their liking on the site’s main page.
Three years passed. Then, on the exact same day as Scott’s November 10 visit, FAU again requested both current and retroactive paperwork for Tracy to continue operating his personal blog.
FAU, a States of Florida entity that receives massive federal aid and thus must abide by the US Constitution, argued that Tracy was terminated because he “failed to file paperwork” with FAU to operate MemoryHoleBlog, purportedly violating FAU’s “outside employment policy” based on Florida Statute 112. They singled out Tracy for the alleged violation despite the fact that plenty of other FAU faculty freely operate blogs and social media accounts on their personal time yet never fill out such forms.
After Tracy filed a federal civil rights suit against FAU and specific administrators involved in the firing the state university defended itself along these very lines by forking over one million dollars to high priced corporate attorneys at Florida taxpayers’ expense.
Could the timing of Tracy’s termination proceedings be a coincidence? Perhaps, yet Tracy’s firing also preceded the highly questionable mass shooting event at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando Florida by a mere six months.
Competent analysts including former CIA officer Robert David Steele have concluded that the “Pulse shooting” was likely an emergency drill produced by federal agencies under the Obama administration. If so, such an event must have been conducted in coordination between said agencies, Governor Scott and Orlando area law enforcement.
Below we find the staff of the Orlando County Sheriff’s office making light of the purportedly greatest mass shooting in American history less than one month after its occurrence. Odd behavior indeed.
On February 14, 2018 while Scott was still Florida governor the highly suspect shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida was carried out. Within hours the event was seized upon by Democratic National Committee operatives including Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Barack Obama himself, to push their gun control agenda that resulted in further restrictions on Floridians’ Second Amendment rights. Just three weeks after the event Scott signed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Act into law.
After corporate attorney G. Joseph Curley successfully defended FAU against Tracy’s civil rights suit in a flawed court process. Governor Scott awarded Curley with a state judgeship. As many readers of this blog are aware, the lower court’s legal and procedural decisions are presently before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Rick Scott is now running for longtime Florida Democratic Congressman Bill Nelson’s US Senate seat. One has to seriously ponder whether Scott isn’t simply yet another authoritarian, gun-grabbing Democrat in Republican’s clothing.
Scott’s attempt to defeat the First Amendment in TracyvFAU and “play” the public via two highly questionable mass shooting events are two very serious reasons to question his honesty and integrity.
