WATCH: Truther explains to state panel how Internet ‘proves’ Newtown shooting was a hoax

Published

on

Speaking before the State of Connecticut’s Public Safety and Security Committee this week, a long-time resident attempted to bring to the attention of the panel information she gleaned from the Internet that she believes proves that 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax.

Maureen Crowley told the panel, which oversees the Department of Safety — including the state police and fire marshals — that telling the truth is never easy, but she felt she had to come forward.

“Security matters indeed, of course it does. Safety,” she patiently explained. “Based on the events in Newtown, Connecticut, December 14, 2012 — not December 13, 2012, the day which was confirmed by Bing [a search engine] itself, that the interview with principal Dawn Hochsprung was cached.”

Crowley went on to cite an often misinterpreted FBI report that failed to account for the Sandy Hook deaths, without noting that the Connecticut State Police managed the crime scene, so those deaths are listed in state, not federal, crime records.

Calling Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza, who died at the scene, “Mr. Fictional,” Crowley said there were discrepancies in the Social Security Death Index over the date on which “Mr. Fictional himself, Adam Lanza, left this world.”

“The list of pre-knowledge — confirmed, issued, and divulged — is long. How could this be if it was a real shooting, done by a 112-pound young man, standing a full 6 feet tall, and wearing a size 8½ shoe, after he neatly made his bed and washed the New Hampshire trip dirt off his mom’s car, and shot 26 people?” she asked, before adding “No.”

Crowley, who grew more animated as she spoke, decried changes she felt were the result of a hoax perpetrated upon the public.

“This is serious! This is a non-event that has turned the culture of the state of Connecticut and the culture of the United States of America upside down,” she said. “Mental health vulturism. Drills in which 3rd-graders are forced to look down the barrel of a gun. Nanny state monitoring of Connecticut homeschooling, and even a president that wants to wage war on bullets.”

“I reject the official narrative of Sandy Hook. I reject the lies.”

Interrupted by the committee chairman, indicating that she needed to “wrap it up,” Crowley spoke rapidly, providing the name of a video available on the Internet called, ‘We Need to Talk About Sandy Hook.’ She insisted the video was “well thought-out, fact based, zero speculation, and interesting.”

“We the people are not as stupid as the people in this room think we are,” she stated. “I hope you’ll remember my words today, unlike the ten members of the Connecticut State Police who could not remember how they entered the non-commissioned, non-operating Sandy Hook Elementary School that day. You think broken glass would be memorable at a school that boasted 34 classrooms when it was K through 5, but no mass evacuation captured on a single police dash-cam.”

Foreign diplomats preparing for the worst — another Trump win in 2020: ‘People don’t want to be stupid twice’

Published

on

According to a report from Politico, foreign diplomats are not so sure Donald Trump will be beaten in the 2020 election and are making contingency plans for how they will deal with him should he be re-elected.

The report notes that the win by the New York businessman in 2016 caught foreign governments by surprise with former French ambassador to the United States, Gerard Araud admitting, "In 2016, nobody believed he was going to be elected. People don’t want to be stupid twice.”

According to Politico, "There’s no known scientific survey on the topic — few foreign officials would participate in one given diplomatic norms that preclude them from commenting on another country's internal politics. But none who talked to POLITICO were willing to say that Trump will lose. Instead, they pointed to three key advantages for Trump: He’s the incumbent, the U.S. economy is strong and the Democrats have no definitive front-runner to challenge him."

Published

on

President Donald Trump kicked off his Sunday morning by going on a multi-tweet rant about the New York Times where he blamed them for his poor poll numbers and called them "an evil propaganda machine.'

Trump began with, "The Failing New York Times, in one of the most devastating portrayals of bad journalism in history, got caught by a leaker that they are shifting from their Phony Russian Collusion Narrative (the Mueller Report & his testimony were a total disaster), to a Racism Witch Hunt....., " before adding, "'Journalism' has reached a new low in the history of our Country. It is nothing more than an evil propaganda machine for the Democrat Party. The reporting is so false, biased and evil that it has now become a very sick joke...But the public is aware! #CROOKEDJOURNALISM."
