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

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

Wolfgang Halbig’s Quest for the Truth

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

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

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

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

Sandy Hook ‘Violence-Prevention Program’ Launches in Florida Public Schools

Los Angeles and Chicago Also on Board

[Editor’s Note: We are not surprised that the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre event has culminated in its participants’ direct intervention in the public schooling process through implementation of behavioral/ mental health programs. This trajectory has been evident since at least early 2013 and reported on at MHB (i.e. here and here). Such measures also involve overt and coordinated maneuvers of the Obama administration harnessing such federal agencies as the Department of Health of Human Services and Department of Education to further make over public education in a fashion similar to Scotland’s cradle-to-grave Getting It Right For Every Child. As noted in late 2014,

Using the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre as its justification, the Obama administration has recently given the psychiatric business and pharmaceutical industry a major gift by quietly introducing a behavioral and mental health program in public schools throughout the United States. The maneuver was initially laid out on January 16, 2013 in President Obama’s executive policy, Now is the Time: The President’s Plan to Protect Our Children and Our Communities by Reducing Gun Violence.

The document is partly devoted to articulating Obama’s proposed gun control measures that failed to move gain legislative traction in 2013. Yet an under-reported section of Now is the Time is applied to “making schools safer” and “improving mental health services” for students.

Obama’s Mental Health Mandate,’ November 4, 2014.

In September 2014, for example, DHS put $99 million toward ‘mental health provider training’ for public schools, while DOE allotted $70 million to create “School Climate Transformation Grants” along shared lines.-JFT]

For Nicole Hockley, the mother of a child killed during the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, this week marks an important milestone on a journey that began with her 6-year-old son Dylan’s death four years ago.

On Monday, Miami-Dade became the first school district in the country to implement Sandy Hook Promise — a violence-prevention program founded by Hockley and others who lost family members during the massacre — in all of its schools.

US Judge Rules Sandy Hook Victims Can Sue “Military-Style” Gun-Maker

In a somewhat stunning decision, SkyNews reports that a US judge has ruled that the families of victims in the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School can sue the maker of the weapon used in the attack, arguing the Bushmaster rifle is a military weapon that should not have been sold to civilians.
