“Nobody Died At Sandy Hook”
Chapter Nine
By: “Dr. Eowyn”

It’s been a frustrating yet oddly satisfying process, parsing through James Fetzer’s bullshit, page by page. So it’s an enormous relief and yet still kind of sad when there’s no real need for me to eviscerate another gross chapter because someone else has already done such a thorough job that it would be a total waste of my time (as well as kind of disrespectful to them) to repeat their work. And in this case, that person is CW Wade from Sandy Hook Facts. CW has done such an excellent job taking “Dr. Eowyn” (otherwise known as Maria Hsia Chang) up on her challenge and eviscerating the lies in Chapter Nine that I’m just going to direct you to his article on the subject. CW wrote another article that works as an excellent supplement to that takedown, and you can find that one here.

While it’s probably out of the scope of his work, it’s a shame that CW did not spend much time talking about just how often the SSDI (social security death index) makes mistakes. In fact, CNN reports that 1 in every 200 deaths are incorrectly entered into its Death Master File. In an article from the Daily Republic regarding 3,000 victims of the 9/11 attacks missing from the MDF, Social Security spokesman Mark Hinkle says, “We make it clear that our death records are not perfect and may be incomplete or, rarely, include information about individuals who are alive,” he said. “Because we do not receive reports for all deaths and cannot release all of the reports we do receive, the absence of a particular person (in the Death Master File) does not prove the person is alive. Our error rate is about 0.5 percent.” Nearly every search engine providing results from the SSDI (or MDF) makes specific mention of this potential for errors. Here’s what Genealogy Bank, which is what Maria Chang used to conduct her “research”, has to say about it:

GenealogyBank updates the SSDI database each week. The updates include corrections to old death records, as well as new names of the recently deceased. If a person is missing from the index, it may be that the SS death benefit was never requested, an error was made on the form requesting the benefit, or an error was made when entering the information into the SSDI.

Comment policy: Comments from previously unapproved guests will remain in moderation until I manually approve them. Honest questions and reasonable comments from all types of folks are encouraged and allowed but will often remain in moderation until I can properly reply to them, which may occasionally take a little while. Contrary to what some of you think, losing your patience during this time and leaving another comment in which you insult me won't do much to speed up that process.

The types of comments that will no longer be approved include the following:

1) Off-topic comments. Articles about The Internet Archive's Wayback Machine are not the place to ask about Hillary's e-mails or pizza shop sex dungeons. Stay on topic.
2) Gish Gallops. Don't know what a Gish Gallop is? Then Google it. And then don't engage in them. They are absolutely infuriating and there is no faster way to have your comment deleted.
3) Yearbook requests. Like I told the fifty other folks asking for them: I don't have them, and even if I did, I wouldn't post them. I'm not about to turn my site into some sort of eBay for weirdos, so stop asking.
4) Requests for photos of dead children. See above. And then seek professional help, because you're fucked up.
5) Asking questions that have already been answered. If you want to have a discussion, don't make it obvious that you haven't read the site by asking a question that I've already spent a significant amount of time answering. I'll allow a little leeway here if you're otherwise well-behaved, but please, read the site. There's a search function and it works pretty well.
