A Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theory

What follows is a theory, not an assertion of what happened. 

Since the Connecticut State Police have disclosed no information about their presumed investigation into the crimes committed at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012 — even as to such seemingly minor details as the ownership of the black Honda in which Adam Lanza is supposed to have driven to the school on the day of the shootings; and in view of the political capital being made from the Sandy Hook shootings by those intent on denying Americans their constitutional right to bear arms against a tyrannical government; and taking account of the totalitarian measures being adopted by the US Police state, including the use of drones to assassinate American citizens without legal process, the hypothesis concerning the Sandy Hook shootings advanced by Professor James Fetzer cannot be dismissed as beyond the realm of possibility. Indeed, after 9/11, no plausible theory of a US Government conspiracy against the people can be ruled out as inherently improbable.

It should be noted, however, that in the absence of evidence from a competent forensic investigation, Fetzer's theory is merely one of many conceivable scenarios to account for events at Sandy Hook. Moreover, it is not necessarily the most plausible. In this connection, it should be noted that Fetzer has a history of seemingly far-fetched conspiracy theories, which may suggest to some, that his claims may serve better to discredit those who quite reasonably question the official account of Sandy Hook, 9/11, or the Kennedy assassination than to reveal the underlying truth of those events.

MemoryHoleBlog, February 6, 2013: A theory is simply an interpretation of facts in a given case. When the police investigate a crime, they form a theory of the case. In courts of law, prosecutors and defense attorneys usually offer alternative interpretations. With Sandy Hook, figuring out what happened poses special challenges.

The facts are not obvious. There were inconsistencies from scratch. The suspect, Adam Lanza, was a student there; then he was not. His mother was a teacher there; then she was not. The principal called the local paper to report the shooting; then she was among the first to die.

The coroner reported all the dead were shot with a Bushmaster; then NBC News reported that four handguns had been found with the body and that the AR-15 had been left in the car. (Check out YouTube, “Sandy Hook shooting — AR-15 rifle was left in the car!”)

Even if Lanza, 20, had done some shooting, the ratio of kills to targets was remarkable. As a Marine Corps officer, I qualified with a .45 four years in a row and also supervised recruits of his age in their marksmanship training. I don’t see how he could have done it.

Police radio in real-time reported two suspects headed toward the officer calling in, one of whom was apprehended. The other was tracked into the woods, as police helicopter footage shows. We have no idea what became of these suspects. So what happened?

Most likely, Adam Lanza and his mother were killed the day before with Adam Lanza’s body picked up by police. He was attired in a SWAT outfit, including body armor, and stored in the school.

I argue a three-man team entered the school. One was arrested in the school, cuffed and put on the lawn. Two went out a back door; one of them was arrested and the other apparently escaped.

Those arrested currently are not in police custody; their names were never released. That is a telling sign that we are being sold a story based on fiction rather than on fact.

Does anything else matter? Most Americans are unaware the Department of Homeland Security has acquired 1.5 billion rounds of .40 caliber, hollow-point ammunition, which is not even permissible during combat under the Geneva Conventions.*

A subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security has issued a study of 680 reports from “fusion centers” that integrate federal, state and local anti-terrorism efforts. It found no evidence of any domestic terrorist activity.

The absence of any terrorist threat and the existence of more than 300 FEMA camps and special boxcars to carry dissidents to them have been deliberately withheld from the public.

Since Homeland Security has no foreign commitments, those camps and ammunition have to be for domestic consumption. Homeland Security appears to be gearing up to conduct a civil war with the American people — but 80 million armed families stand in its way.

What better excuse could there be for banning assault weapons than the slaughter of 20 innocent children? Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., has a gun control proposal that would lead to the confiscation of virtually every semi-automatic weapon in the nation.

That’s my interpretation of Sandy Hook.

This is often incorrectly believed to be prohibited in the Geneva Conventions and is a continuance of the St. Petersburg Declaration of 1868, which banned exploding projectiles of less than 400 grams, as well as weapons designed to aggravate injured soldiers or make their death inevitable. NATO members do not use small arms ammunition that is prohibited by the Hague Convention. Source


  1. I suppose that more people are wakening up. But a civil war must be avoided.

    1. Civil war is always bad, but depending on the outcome, the alternative may be worse.

    2. waking up to the fact that fetzer hangs around that idiot duff character ?

    3. "duff charater"? Oh, you mean Duff. Yes, Fetzer generally seems toxic to any serious investigation of a state crime against the people.
