“Nobody Died At Sandy Hook”
Chapter Five

By: “Vivian Lee, PhD”

This one was a real chore to get through. At thirty-three pages (Illuminati alert!), it’s the longest chapter thus far and so dense with bullshit that I’ve decided to split it up in to two pieces. This is another one that originally started as an article on the rancid “Veteran’s Today”. It’s two years old at this point, but Lee claims that the content is “still as valid as ever”. Let’s see if there’s any truth to that. Spoiler: there isn’t.

“Nobody Died At Sandy Hook”
Chapter Seven
By: Allan Powell and Kelley Watt

Let’s say that you’re the kind of person who enjoys magic shows. So you gather up your wife (or husband!) and kids one Friday night and head on down to the… well, wherever it is a magician would perform. You’re feeling great, so you splurge on front row tickets and take your seat, excited for a night of family-friendly entertainment. The magician finally takes the stage and kicks the night off by pulling a rabbit out of his hat. It’s a classic trick. The kids are impressed and everyone’s going nuts. The magician then spends the next hour and a half repeatedly performing the very same trick, pulling the same rabbit out of the same hat, over and over and over again. You’d be pretty pissed, right? Because that’s the situation we find ourselves in with Fetzer and his crew pulling the same dumb trick yet again: presenting photos out of order as well as out of context.

The structure for this chapter’s debunk is going to be a little different: rather than break it down on a claim-by-claim basis, I’m going to address pages at a time, highlighting certain claims where necessary. It’ll be much easier to follow if you not only have a copy of the book (which I hope you didn’t pay for – remember that magician?) as well as the files available through Connecticut’s final report, which I will be referencing frequently.

#10 – “There Was An Emergency Preparedness Drill/Exercise Nearby”

Mentioned at least three times in “Nobody Died At Sandy Hook”, FEMA’s “Planning for the Needs of Children in Disasters” is alternately mischaracterized as a “drill” or an “exercise”. In reality, “Planning for the Needs of Children in Disasters” is a six hour independent study course, based on material taken from this document by Save The Children. While FEMA offers the course online, some state organizations also teach it in a classroom environment, which means that it ends up looking a bit more like this:

Than this:

If you’ve got a sharp eye, you may be able to spot a couple of differences!

In my previous entry, I was able to objectively demonstrate not only that the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine (“The Wayback Machine”) is a thoroughly worthless tool for measuring a public school’s “Internet activity” (let alone its actual operation), but that in using outdated information as part of their “research”, the ghouls responsible for “Nobody Died At Sandy Hook” have shown themselves to be totally inept, if not intentionally deceitful. But there’s still a bit of life left in this horse (and I’m not talking about James Fetzer).

One of the more pervasive zombie myths still being propagated by the Sandy Hook denialist cult is the lie that Sandy Hook Elementary School quietly closed in 2008 and was therefore empty when Adam Lanza (who may or may not have even existed, depending on which wackadoo you’re dealing with) carried out his deadly attack on December 14th, 2012. This alleged closure was so quiet, in fact, that not a single local media outlet covered it.

This absurd fantasy seems to have originated with professional conspiracy theorist James Fetzer, a bloated carny who has been supplementing his retirement income with a series of increasingly insane (and lazy, based on the fact that nearly every word in “Nobody Died At Sandy Hook” was lifted from a pre-existing blog entry) books declaring everything that has ever happened – from the moon landing to the Boston Marathon bombing – to be an elaborate fake. And despite the mountain of evidence to the contrary (including numerous photographs depicting a bustling school, years worth of PTA meeting minutes, school facilities surveys, news articles, job listings, etc.), Fetzer has seemingly based this outrageous claim entirely on a combination of outdated information and a total – and possibly intentional, though that may be giving him too much credit – misunderstanding of how the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine functions. That’s it.

“Nobody Died At Sandy Hook”
Chapter Three
By: James Fetzer

It bugs me to present these chapters out of order, but Wolfgang Halbig was in the midst of his second FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) hearing on my original run-through, so I wanted to wait until the dust settled before tackled this one, just in case anything interesting popped up. Ultimately nothing really did (outside of Halbig’s usual lies), and I’ve included some information in regards to that hearing at the end of this article.

Anyway, before we get into the claims made here, here’s how SandyHookFacts.com summarizes Wolfgang Halbig’s miserable showing at his first FOIA hearing, which is the focus of this chapter:

Wolfgang Halbig’s spent about $20,000 raised through his charity, Sandy Hook Justice, for two days worth of hearings. He was awarded no documents and the majority of his complaints where dismissed in their entirety.  It should also be noted that the documents Halbig obtained at a cost of  about $20,000, Sandy Hook Facts obtained for under $100.

Ouch!

“Nobody Died At Sandy Hook”
Appendix C
By: James Tracy

At 108 poorly written pages (nearly a quarter of the book!) and comprised almost entirely of out-of-context snippets from mainstream news articles presented in roughly chronological order, disgraced former college professor Jame Tracy’s sole contribution to this shitpile – and likely one of the major contributing factors to his dismissal from Florida Atlantic University – still manages to stand out as being the laziest entry in a book full of chapters that were literally copied verbatim from old blog posts. That’s pretty impressive!

Since he doesn’t editorialize much, I’m a bit confused as to what crybaby James Tracy believes actually happened at Sandy Hook. Based on this chapter appendix, I can only infer that he subscribes to a multiple shooter theory… though he also appears to simultaneously accept the “FEMA drill” narrative. And that’s probably for the best, because titling your book (seriously, this is the whole title) “Nobody Died at Sandy Hook: It was a FEMA Drill to Promote Gun Control” doesn’t leave a lot of room for competing hypotheses, does it?
