The Sandy Hook Circus Comes to Town

grace-playground“The keyword here is blackwhite. Like so many Newspeak words, this word has two mutually contradictory meanings. Applied to a Party member, it means a loyal willingness to say that black is white when the Party discipline demands this. But it also means the ability to believe that black is white, and more, to know that black is white, and to forget that one has ever believed the contrary.” —George Orwell, 1984

I never fell for the Sandy Hook conspiracy story, just like I never fell for chemtrail mania, we never landed on the moon or Elvis is Alive and in witness protection. But I couldn’t help but notice the Sandy Hook Circus came to town to finally confront the Connecticut school board where the tragic event took place.

Before that, however, one of the arriving “Truthers” from out-of-state stole the peace sign from a nearby memorial playground. The 50-pound sign was removed because “Sandy Hook never happened” according to the thief. This is quite an allegation for a community suffering such an intense loss of life, and you understand right away why no one in Sandy Hook wanted anything to do with the Sandy Hook Circus. Stealing peace signs from playgrounds, however, is a new low in anyone’s book.

In the 1960s, the FBI had a program called Cointelpro where they recruited young agents, had them grow their hair long and then they placed them inside the counterculture around the country to lead everyone away from their core principles of non-violence. While this was going on, they had some counterculture leaders assassinated by police, most notably some Black Panthers, who were one of the few anti-war groups advocating armed self-defense. Once people are traumatized by a few murders of their leaders, it’s very easy to lead them into a violent response. So fostering violence was the main objective of Cointelpro, and Johnny Griggs was quickly replaced by Charles Manson, while Woodstock was quickly replaced by Altamont.

But this is a new era and some new styles of ops are underway. And the Sandy Hook op involves psycholinguistics and Orwellian newspeak and misdirection. These gun fanatics urging everyone to arm themselves, also claim Sandy Hook was a hoax that never happened designed to take away their guns. Some of the principle characters in this hoax showed up this week to confront the Sandy Hook school board with three-minute statements. Wisely, the board declined all commentary, refusing to even grant the credibility of a response.

These people call themselves “Truthers” yet they are as far from truth as you can possibly get. And they give a bad name to deep political researchers everywhere and I believe that is intentional. Have you seen the amount of garbage online promoting the idea Sandy Hook never happened, children never died, and actors were brought in to play the roles of the grieving parents, but apparently they couldn’t act because they didn’t grieve so well? Since so many of these outlandish allegations are contradictory, you have to wonder what’s the Sandy Hook Circus really about?

It’s about sheep-dipping “conspiracy theory” as “wingnut theory.” The two sites pushing this the hardest are Infowars and Veteran’s Today, which tells me both are disinfo, but then you’ll find almost as much disino on Sandy Hook as you will on chemtrails or any of the other major intel rabbit holes. This is how spooks play their games, and a big part is turning “truth” into “lies.”

There are some Sandy Hook questions I’d like answered. Like how long are we going to continue putting millions of kids on these synthetic pills, when we know a significant portion are going to go crazy and delusional and violent? When will the pill companies be brought to task for this mass drugging of an entire generation of children and this epidemic of school shootings and teen suicides it has brought forth?

If you wanted to build a real legacy for the families who lost loved ones, and prevent more school shootings from happening, the real solution is getting the children with mental health issues real treatment and not warehousing them on meds that could bring down a horse. Because that’s the way our mental health system deals with mental illness: by drugging patients into submission. This may provide a temporary solution for many, but it’s not the long-term solution for others, at least not with the current single-molecule meds we are using, and I’m especially concerning about the rise of tweaker meds like Adderall and Ritalin. But you won’t find any of this even discussed by the Sandy Hook Circus. All they ever talk about is guns. Maybe if we tried plant-based medicine instead of pill-based medicine the results might be a bit better.

  1. I get a lot of stuff on Sandy Hook from “Memory Hole Blog”. They covered the school board testimony as well. James Tracy, who runs the blog, was at one point warming up to Halbig, then got wind of a sponsor he had hooked up with and backed off. I read the comments following Tracy’s report on the meeting. One in particular stuck out. The writer was freaking out abt the impression left by “Truthers” as a whole. There was Halbig and Fetzer and then all the others – colonial guy, guns-in-the-schools-as-a-deterrent guy, bi-polar-is-not-to-be-stigmatzed woman, to say nothing of hang-the-governor-high guy. In the writer’s view, this collection of individuals served to put “responsible professionals” Fetzer and Halbig (Fetzer a journalist, Halbig a school safety expert) in the lead of the effort to truthify Sandy Hook, leaving “all the rest of us” to look like freaks and crazies. It was sort of what you were saying abt sheep-dipping legitimate citizen researchers, or just people with a head on their shoulders and no particular axe to grind (there are a few). Only I suspect that you don’t find a dime’s worth of difference between Halbig, Fetzer and the others. I had to feel for the writer.

    Tracy and Memory Blog, in my view, give vent to all the angles of the story – or maybe I don’t them all. He, too, reported on the Peter Lanza-Andrew Solomon thing. That immediately clicked in my mind. It could be that the story is state-mandated psychiatric evaluations for all kids as a condition for admission to public schools. My wife says this is too far out. Medicating kids as a form of social control, always with their best interest in mind, was controversial when I was teaching school over 40 years ago. It’s come a long way since.

    If this piece of the story is more to the point than “Sandy Hook didn’t happen, therefore don’t mess with our gun freedoms”, then it is hard to figure how the latter rabbit hole is intended to divert attention away from the Pharma for kids promotion. That is, if Sandy Hook didn’t really happen, then Adam Lanza never got off his meds and killed anybody.

    • I think the distraction is it takes the spotlight focus away from pills, which is where it should be. But the main op is to mold this stuff to all “conspiracy theory” in general as a way to prevent serious discussions of 9/11.

  2. Steve .. Regards chemtrails .. As unlikely as it may seem , and as varied are the reasons put forward for them , when you look up , it does look like they are spraying something , and the amount of cloud cover we get ( in scotland ) is phenomenal …

    That said I welcome your approach , and I’d also value your further comments on chemtrails …
