18 days ago, on January 25, 2016, warrior for Sandy Hook truth Dr. James Tracy announced on his Memory Hole Blog the instauration of the James Tracy Legal Defense Fund.
The purpose of the James Tracy Legal Defense Fund is stated as follows:
Academic freedom and free speech are the basic and shared tenets of free and democratic societies. On January 6, 2016 Florida Atlantic University terminated Dr. James Tracy’s tenured position as Associate Professor of Journalism and Media Studies, ostensibly for failing to fill out and file paperwork in a timely manner. Tracy began his employment at FAU as Assistant Professor in 2002, and was granted tenure in 2008. His 13-year record of teaching, research, and service-oriented contributions at the South Florida university has been consistently adjudged as excellent by his peers.
Many observers contend that Tracy’s firing stemmed from his articles and commentary made on his personal blog, Memory Hole, interrogating the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre of December 14, 2012 and similar controversial events. Beginning in early 2013 Dr. Tracy became a target of many mainstream journalistic outlets that have routinely failed to provide objective and responsible investigative coverage of such incidents. Dr. Tracy’s abrupt termination suggests a broader affront to free speech and academic freedom not only at FAU, but for free thinkers throughout the US and world.
The James Tracy Legal Defense Fund was established as a nonprofit entity by Dr. James Tracy and other concerned scholars in January 2016. The central purpose of the Tracy Legal Defense Fund is to generate revenue toward retaining competent legal representation for researching and ascertaining the facts pertinent to Dr. Tracy’s case.
Florida Atlantic University first moved to terminate tenured professor Tracy on 16 December 2015, less than a week after the (Florida) Sun-Sentinel saw fit to publish an op/ed by Lenny and Veronique Pozner, parents of alleged Sandy Hook child victim Noah. In their op/ed, the Pozners accused Tracy of “harassment” by sending a certified letter demanding that Lenny produce proof that Noah really is dead. The Pozners’ allegation has been repeated by countless subsequent news reports and readers’ comments, including an “expert” on academic tenure who was interviewed on air by NBC and cited Tracy’s alleged “harassment” as sufficient grounds for a university firing a tenured professor.
In writing the op/ed, the Pozners’ intent was evidenced by the word “target” in the title of their Sun-Sentinel op/ed: “Sandy Hook Massacre 3rd Anniversary: Two parents target FAU conspiracy theorist”. Target for what? — to get Tracy fired, an objective in which the Pozners succeeded.
Open societies are always endangered. This is especially true of America and Europe today, as a result of the terrorist attacks in Paris and elsewhere, and the way that America and Europe, particularly France, have reacted to them.
Jihadi terrorist groups such as Islamic State and al-Qaida have discovered the achilles heel of our western societies: the fear of death. Through horrific attacks and macabre videos, the publicists of Isis magnify this fear, leading otherwise sensible people in hitherto open societies to abandon their reason.
Scientists have discovered that emotion is an essential component of human reasoning. That discovery explains why jihadi terrorism poses such a potent threat to our societies: the fear of death leads us and our leaders to think – and then behave – irrationally.
Gun rights activists announced that they are to hold an ‘Open Carry’ march and rally, and will stage a fake mass shooting theatrical event at the University of Texas, this weekend. UT Austin said that any such event would be considered trespassing.
Multiple gun rights groups in Austin, Texas will participate in the event on Saturday to protest gun-free zones, as well as US President Barack Obama’s call for tougher gun control legislation. The event, titled Life and Liberty to End Gun-Free Zones, will take place just a week after the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California.
“In the wake of yet another gun free zone shooting, Obama is using it to aggressively push his gun confiscation agenda,” the Facebook page for the event read. “Now is the time to stand up, take a walk, speak out against the lies and put an end to the gun free killing zones.”
Press TV has conducted an interview with Kevin Barrett, editor of the Veterans Today from Madison, on inconsistencies of US reports about a shooting rampage in California.
The following is a rough transcription of the interview.
Press TV: Even the attorney for this family, I believe he was on CNN, brought up many inconsistencies on the story. How do you feel about this?
Barrett: I’m afraid that we may be seeing yet another false flag massacre like September 11, 2001, like July 7th, 2005 and like the two recent shooting attacks in Paris. It appears that all of these events and many many others are part of a program that’s called “Gladio B.”
It’s a continuation of the NATO false flag terror program that blue people often murdered people throughout the Cold War in Europe. It was run by the United States’ joint chiefs of staff. Today the Gladio B program is run essentially by the same people with the huge new input from the Israelis.
The American public has turned away from outright denial of climate change. Sixty-three percent of adults describe the problem as “serious” in the latest opinion poll from the Washington Post and ABC News, a dip from the 69 percent who held that view in June. The minority who remain skeptical of climate science—a group that includes presidential hopefuls and powerful lawmakers—can count on a dedicated network of several thousand professional supporters.
New research for the first time has put a precise count on the people and groups working to dispute the scientific consensus on climate change. A loose network of 4,556 individuals with overlapping ties to 164 organizations do the most to dispute climate change in the U.S., according to a paper published today in Nature Climate Change. ExxonMobil and the family foundations controlled by Charles and David Koch emerge as the most significant sources of funding for these skeptics. As a two-week United Nations climate summit begins today in Paris, it’s striking to notice that a similarly vast infrastructure of denial isn’t found in any other nation.
WASHINGTON — When Adam Lanza took a .223 Bushmaster XM15-E2S semi-automatic rifle and killed 20 children and six adults on Dec. 14, 2012, many residents of Newtown became outspoken advocates for gun control.
But the National Shooting Sports Foundation, whose headquarters are located a scant 6 miles from Sandy Hook Elementary School, quietly went in the opposite direction.
The NSSF, as the gun industry’s trade group is known, has grown from its hunting and target-shooting roots to a powerhouse on Capitol Hill. The group now rivals the National Rifle Association as a leading lobbyist for gun rights and opponent of virtually all gun-control proposals, including expanded background checks.

Today, the citizens of the United States of America observe the 52nd anniversary of the assassination of their President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. This day also sadly marks 52 years of a government-sponsored lie upon its citizenry. A citizenry which trusted it to govern wisely and honorably.
This was far from the last lie Americans have been told to swallow.
The “Official” account that the world was told to believe at the risk of being labeled a conspiracy kook is that the president of the United States was killed by a single disgruntled communist sympathizer who was able to hit his mark on two out of three miraculously-aimed shots from a low-quality, Italian-made bolt-action rifle out of a 6th story window.
Flip on the TV today, and in between the absolutely indispensable NFL news and updates you very well might catch a sentence or two about JFK, Dealey Plaza, and Lee Harvey Oswald. But how much of it is true, and what if any of it, can we believe?
Let’s look at the FACTS. There are so many things that could be listed here, points and details which have been enumerated and cataloged by more accomplished researchers over the past five decades. But by using some basic logic, the “official” story is the one that is farfetched. If you’ve ever spent time at a gun range, the level of skill necessary to accurately hit stationary targets is obvious. But keep in mind that JFK was in a moving vehicle, 6 stories below where Oswald was purported to be. And “Oswald’s” view at the time of him firing the deadly shots would have been obscured by trees. Also “Oswald” (according to the official story confirmed by George H.W. Bush…more on that later) was not using a semi-automatic rifle which could conceivably fire the 3 aimed bullets in 6 seconds, rather, his bolt-action weapon would have forced him to re-aim after each shot. Then, if this assassination really is all just the result of a lone deluded gunman, how does one account for a number of people connected to JFK who themselves died soon afterwards?
Above is a video version of an astonishing interview on The Higherside Chats between host Greg Carlwood and researcher Ole Dammegard which was published on April 11 of this year (04/11/2015).
In light of recent events, it is worth going back and carefully listening to this interview, because many of the patterns of recent events that Ole and Greg explore during this conversation from seven months ago are shockingly similar to patterns we have seen over the past seven days.
The interview explores the abundant evidence which suggests that fear-inducing events may be deliberately employed in order to shock the emotions of a large number of people, in order to enable the pursuit of policies that the majority of the people would strongly oppose or vigorously protest had it not been for the emotionally-manipulative event that was staged in order to overcome that resistance (and in fact to change the popular opinion towards demanding an action that they would have otherwise opposed).
Such deliberately provoked or artificially manufactured events, designed to arouse the populace to clamor for actions that they would previously have opposed, are often referred to as “false flags,” a term from the days in which sailing ships flew their colors to show their nation of origin: if a ship falsely displayed the flag of an enemy, and then committed some kind of atrocity in order to blame that act on the enemy and arouse the anger of the population so that they would demand revenge or other violent action as a response, then that incident could be termed a “false flag” event.
This afternoon, I received a request from Alison Hall with INSIDE EDITION (ABC daily, early evening in most cities). She said they were doing a story about NURTURING AND HEALING (2014) by Scarlett Lewis, one of the purported parents of a child, Jesse Lewis, whom the “official reports” allege to have been killed by Adam Lanza. Apparently, they noticed that amazon.com advertises NOBODY DIED AT SANDY HOOK (2015) on the same page as Scarlett’s book, which led them to contact me to discuss what we had found.
That sounded fine to me, since it meant that we are beginning to break through the curtain of silence that has been imposed by the media on NOBODY DIED. A media expert, for example, sent a detailed introduction to the book to 1,500 venues across the country, which invited them to contact me for an interview. When he asked me recently, “How many inquiries have you had?”, I had to admit that the number was “Zero!” So this looked like it might be an exception to the rule. I would soon discover how wrong I had been.
