(SOUTH FLORIDA SUN-SENTINEL) A communication professor known for conspiracy theories has stirred controversary at Florida Atlantic Universitywith claims that last month’s Newtown, Conn., school shootings did not happen as reported — or may not have happened at all.
Moreover, James Tracy asserts in radio interviews and on his memoryholeblog.com. that trained “crisis actors” may have been employed by the Obama administration in an effort to shape public opinion in favor of the event’s true purpose: gun control.
“As documents relating to the Sandy Hook shootingcontinue to be assessed and interpreted by independent researchers, there is a growing awareness that the media coverage of the massacre of 26 children and adults was intended primarily for public consumption to further larger political ends,” writes Tracy, a tenured associate professor of media history at FAU and a former union leader.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts was the former head of policy at the Department of Treasury and was previously the editor of the Wall Street Journal. His latest book is How the Economy Was Lost. Over the years I have read his columns and always found him to be insightful and thought provoking.
Just this week he did a column called Agenda Prevails Over Truth and boy was he right on the money there. The article appeared on http://www.prisonplanet.com For the leftist lap dogs that prevail in what we call the “news” media agenda is everything. Truth is what fits the agenda and if it doesn’t fit the agenda it’s not truth. It’s as simple as that.
(“There’s Never Been Anyone Like Ron Paul As the Republican shills at the NRA discover.”) ~ Retiring Rep. Ron Paul Becomes First Republican To Rip NRA’s Plan for Armed Guards at Schools, Saying That It Would Create ‘Orwellian Surveillance State’
Outgoing Republican Senator Ron Paul from Texas took on the National Rifle Association this week, arguing that the gun lobby‘s recent proposal to place armed guards at every U.S. school is ‘just another kind of violence.’
In a statement released on Monday, the uncompromising libertarian lawmaker said that the federal government should not try to ‘pursue unobtainable safety’ and claimed that Democrats and Republicans have ‘zero moral authority to legislate against violence.’
‘This is the world of government provided “security,” a world far too many Americans now seem to accept or even endorse,’ the 77-year-old congressman wrote on his website. ‘School shootings, no matter how horrific, do not justify creating an Orwellian surveillance state in America.’
Calls for increased gun control are being renewed in the wake of the Newtown, Conn. school shooting last Friday, and President Barack Obama indicated he would pursue measures to stop such events from happening in the future. Obama said at a memorial service Sunday that he would “use whatever power this office holds” to prevent such massacres.
In yet another high-profile public shooting, 20 children and six adults were killed in Sandy Hook Elementary School when a gunman forced his way in and began firing. Obama spoke strongly about the failure of the country to protect its children, and suggested his administration would explore new efforts to better regulate guns.
Now I’ve been watching this news for most of the day. Remarkably, it seems to change every few minutes.
First, we had the name change. Who exactly did the shooting? Ryan? Adam? Someone else?
Then, we hear that someone in camo garb or something was apprehended in the woods. When I first heard this, I assumed it was the brother and that was why there was confusion about the name.
But turns out that the brother was actually at work – and was not in the woods. So who was in the woods?
Worst School Massacre in U.S. history: Not a Shooting… (“The mainstream media uses the term “school shootings” because it fits nicely into their narrative that guns are to blame and therefore law-abiding citizens should be disarmed.”)
The mainstream media uses the term “school shootings” because it fits nicely into their narrative that guns are to blame and therefore law-abiding citizens should be disarmed.
But by limiting their discussion only to shootings, they ignore the worst school massacre in U.S. history which wasn’t a shooting at all.
Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting Serious Questions Arise Concerning the True Nature of the Events…
Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting
Serious Questions Arise Concerning the True Nature of the Events
…..In the wake of this event, some very confusing details have surfaced in regards to the mainstream media‘s reports concerning the true nature of the events which took place inside the school. The purpose of this write-up is merely to ask some very basic questions, as the media reports which have surfaced, when put together, seem to paint a very confusing picture.
(GyG: What “The Folks” Are Saying/See Reader Responses!) ~ Revealed: Connecticut school gunman’s ‘survivalist’ mother was obsessed with guns[...]… (“Speaking from her home near Chicago, Marsha Lanza, 57, said: ‘She was stockpiling food. We talked about prepping a lot. She was getting ready for the economic collapse. ‘I think she had the guns for self-defense because she lived alone.’”)
Nancy Lanza began hoarding such items because she feared that the financial crisis was going to bring about the end of civilized society.
She reportedly became ‘obsessed’ with guns and taught Adam how to shoot, but on Friday he turned on her and blasted the woman to death while she laid in her own bed.
Law enforcement sources told the Hartford Courant that she had not gotten up – and could have even been asleep – when her son killed her.
Mass Killings Stopped by Armed Citizens… (“There are several documented cases where armed citizens have stopped mass attacks by gunmen. Let me list a few:”…)
There are several documented cases where armed citizens have stopped mass attacks by gunmen. Let me list a few: The Pearl, Mississippi school shooting was stopped by the vice principal Joel Myrick with a Colt .45, The Appalachian School shooting was stopped by two students with handguns. Both of the above incidents were stopped by the armed citizens threatening the shooter without firing.

Plans to slay everyone in the Muskegon, Michigan, store and steal enough cash and jewelry to feed their “gnawing hunger for crack cocaine” fell apart for a band of would-be killers after one of their victims fought back.
America now has its second worst mass shooting. And it, as usual, accompanied by calls for gun control. It’s no coincidence that we have had quite a few spree killings in such a short time. The lavish coverage of every shooting by the media encourages every shooter to think that he will be famous if he goes out and kills. And that is exactly what happens.
Our shooters are creatures of the media, not the NRA. A media that turns killers into celebrities and then warns that the only way to stop more shootings is by cracking down on firearms.

…Yes, yes, The Speech was fine. Full of rainbows and unicorns and signifying nothing. But did the whole thing have to be turned into a campagin rally? Were the names of the victims listed on the back, like a rock band’s tour schedule? Faugh! This is appalling.
Sure wish my great grandmother had grabbed one of these when she went to Gettysburg…
