Unsurprisingly, I don’t have many positive things to say about serial grifter Wolfgang Halbig, a man who has chosen to spend his golden years spreading egregious lies about the massacre of twenty small children and six adults for profit. But I must admit that I’m legitimately impressed by the man’s zeal for firing off barely comprehensible e-mails, each one dumber than the last, to a large group of recipients who have made it abundantly clear that they have zero interest in hearing his bullshit. He’s been doing it for many, many years at this point, occasionally including me in his very unsolicited mailing list, even though I reply-all to publicly drag him each and every time. While this sort of spam is traditionally an annoyance, I’m actually thrilled that he’s still at, otherwise I’d miss out on absolute gems like his latest bout of binary diarrhea:

Ian and Nicole Hockley lied on the stand duirng the Alex Jones trial and NO one bothers to expose the perjury. Why?

For shill Murrray look at the creation date not the modified date you idiot.

The Newtown Bee website, Mrs Hockley said:
‘We moved here in January 2011. We arrived in a little two-wheel-drive rental car, with no furniture here yet – and then 27in of snow fell that night. We practically had to use a dustpan to dig our way out.’ She added: ‘When we started looking for a house here, we visited Westchester County and all around. This was the place, when we were driving around, where we felt happy and comfortable.

In the article posted on The Newtown Bee website, Mrs. Hockley said: ‘My husband, Ian, is British and works for IBM. We have two children. Jake is seven years old and in the second grade at Sandy Hook School, and Dylan is six and in kindergarten there.

‘We moved here in January 2011. We arrived in a little two-wheel-drive rental car, with no furniture here yet – and then 27in of snow fell that night.

What is every body so afraid off. I went to jail for reporting a crime, it is the new Justice system.

In addition to the now compulsory AS400 screenshot that debunks itself (of which we’re told to look at the created date, rather than the modified date, for the most up-to-date info… idiot), Halbig also attached the following in an effort to provide some desperately-needed context to his ramblings:

If you’re having trouble following — a common issue when dealing with Halbig — the claim is that the person seen in the photo on the left with former Middle Gate principal Judy Liestman is Dylan Hockley’s mother, Nicole. And since that photo was taken in 2009, there’s no way the Hockley’s story of moving to Newtown in 2011 is true as we all know you can’t take a photo somewhere unless you actually live there. That is of course why everyone has to just take your word for it when you go on vacation. Oh, and I guess Judy Liestman maybe met Obama or something in 2011, and that photo isn’t included, but… case closed?

As per usual, I have absolutely no idea what the point Halbig’s trying to make here is. Why would the Hockleys need to secretly move to the area two years earlier than claimed? Halbig makes no attempt to explain the significance. But the larger problem here, even beyond the absurdity of it all, is that the woman in that photo is very obviously not Nicole Hockley.

To try and support his claim, Halbig includes three photos of Hockley with reddish hair, at least two of which were taken after the shooting, so at least three years after the photo in question. Even then, he fails to produce even a single photo showing Nicole with wavy-to-curly hair, like the woman seen with Liestman. And if you were to Google photos of her, or even scour her Facebook, in an attempt to find one, you will have wasted your time as there are none.

Another thing Halbig didn’t bother to include are any photos of Nicole that may have actually been taken sometime around 2009, as opposed to years later. Because, if he did, it would be even more clear that this is absolutely not the woman photographed with Judy Liestman:

We all have eyes, right? Beyond the stark differences in hair, which we’ve already discussed, and in addition to obvious differences in facial features, the woman photographed with Judy Liestman is visibly thinner and older. Look at the difference in their hands, just as an example.

And while the caption has mysteriously been shrunken and compressed to the point that it is more or less unreadable, it is included with the original photo, which is still available on the Newtown Bee’s website:

The final meeting of the Middle Gate PTA for the 2009-10 school year was held Wednesday, June 7, and included a breakfast to honor Principal Judy Liestman, who will be leaving the district at the end of the school year. Ms Liestman, fourth from right, stood with PTA members during the meeting.”

Per the caption, the women in this photo, with the exception of Principal Liestman, were all members of the Middle Gate PTA for the 2009-2010 school year. Why would Nicole Hockley, whose oldest child, Jake, would’ve only been in Kindergarten at the time, be a member of the Middle Gate PTA? It doesn’t make any sense, especially when there are publicly-available photos showing both Hockley children — who are only two years apart — in matching uniforms from a Primary school in Chandler’s Ford, England:

While the photo is not timestamped, Dylan is seen playing a burgundy Nintendo DS LX, which was not made available in Europe until March 5th, 2010, so of course it could only have been taken some time after that:

The Nintendo DSi XL was released in Japan on November 21, 2009, in bronze, burgundy, and white.[18] The former two colors were available for its European launch on March 5, 2010,[44] and its North American launch on March 28.[45]

Nicole also refers to 27 inches of snow falling in Newtown the night they moved into town. That is a lot of snow for a single night — enough to set a record for accumulation within a twenty-four hour period at the time — and in fact it would be an outrageous claim if it were not corroborated by publicly-available information from the time:

Snow Storm Benedict Hits Newtown, CT  This morning we woke up to snow – lots of snow!  Snow Storm Benedict hit Newtown, CT overnight and snowed for most of the morning.  Benedict was a Nor’Easter which is a special type of storm that hits the states along the Atlantic Seaboard.  The original forecast for snow accumulations was 12″ to 18″ of snow – Newtown got a grand total of 27″ to 29″ depending on the news source.  Benedict is one of the largest storms to ever hit Newtown.

Surely deniers will argue something silly like this information was rehearsed to try and lend more weight to their story — a story we don’t know why they’re telling in the first place — but then we must accept that Nicole managed to remember precisely how much snow fell on January 12th, 2011, but somehow forgot that she was photographed and published by the very same newspaper that she’s sharing this anecdote with just two years prior.

Additionally, if the Hockleys had moved to Newtown in 2009, why aren’t there any public records for them until March of 2013?

Are we expected to believe that the Hockleys, whose patriarch undoubtedly made a comfortable living working for IBM at the time, kicked around the area for 3-4 years before purchasing a home? It’s preposterous.

While it may not sound like it, I honestly hope Wolfgang never stops sending me these stupid e-mails. Seriously. Even without my snarky commentary, they do more damage to his reputation than any debunk every could.

Honest questions and reasonable comments from all types of folks are allowed and encouraged but will sometimes 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. If you don't like it, go somewhere else.

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

1) Off-topic comments. An entry 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? Educate yourself. And then don't engage in them. They are an infuriating waste of everyone's time 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 just stop asking.
4) Requests for photos of dead children. See above. And then seek professional help, because you're fucked up. These items are unavailable to the public; exempt from FOIA requests; and in violation of Amendment 14 of the US Constitution, Article 1 Section 8b of the Connecticut State Constriction, and Connecticut Public Act # 13-311.

If you want to have a discussion, don't make it painfully obvious that you haven't bothered to 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 fairly well.
