“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.

James Fetzer frequently brags about the quantity as well as alleged quality of his book’s contributors, usually as a way of deflecting attention away from the actual quality of his research (or lack thereof). After all, a book written by multiple doctors couldn’t possibly be wrong, could it?

One of the book’s more flagrant chapters – Chapter Two – is written by someone calling themselves “Dr. Eowyn”, who goes to great lengths to remain anonymous not only throughout this book, but on their own crank website, “Fellowship of the Minds”. But I wanted to know a bit more about the kind of person who could shit out something so vile and have the audacity to commit it to print. Were they actually a professor and professional author, as they so proudly claimed? Without a name, we have only their word, and can we really trust the word of someone capable of making so many elementary mistakes? So I did some digging and it wasn’t long before I found the information I was looking for. Read More →

“Nobody Died At Sandy Hook”
Chapter Two
By “Dr. Eowyn” (aka Maria Hsia Chang)

“Infowars reporter Dan Bidondi said (5:45 mark), “The school’s been closed down for God knows how long. [Neighbors] can’t understand why there were kids in that building because it was condemned.” pg. 30

Which neighbors? Not a single name is given, and seeing as how this claim comes from a “reporter” for one of the most notorious and profitable conspiracy cranks on the planet (Alex Jones), a grain of salt may not be enough: you may want a shaker’s full before you even consider ingesting this one. The fact is that you can find a number of interviews with area residents all over the place, and none of them seem to be even the slightest bit confused by the fact that children were at the school. Certainly if the school had been closed for some time, as Fetzer claims, someone would ask what they were doing there. Read More →
