Sandy Hook Madness – Identifying the lunatic[s]

Hi readers.  Luckily I just don’t give a damn.  But this Sandy Hook thing’s all out of hand.

Snopes put it all aside, laid it firmly to rest January, 2013.  Addressed it all calmly in that irritatingly smug Snopes fashion and has never again let the subject darken their door.  http://www.snopes.com/politics/guns/newtown.asp

Shortly later in February, 2013, Huffington Post put the whole thing to sleep offering up all manner of point-by-point reasoned arguements and explanations:  Sandy Hook Hoax Theories Explained: Why Newtown ‘Truther’ Arguments Don’t Hold Up, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/11/sandy-hook-hoax-theories-explained-debunking-newtown-truther_n_2627233.html

But as Walter Brennon used to say about them Shoshones, they just “kep a’ comin’!”  Every day some new doppelganger shows up, some missing birth or death certificate, some piece of vital-but-never-the-less photoshopped evidence.

A person could walk away from it all as legitimately believing the Lanza shooter never existed, or didn’t exist on the day of the shooting, as believing t’other extreme.  Every shred of evidence in the one direction appears to be offset by equally [pick one: (a-valid)(b-absurd)] and damning proof for the other side.

In a sane world the default position would be that officialdom and their statements were a reflection of reality.  And the burden of proof would be on anyone wishing to put forward another viewpoint.

Unfortunately, the Internet and a decade of this new century have proved officialdom is composed of liars as sneaky and Byzantine in their motives as the rest of us, perhaps more so.  No doubt they’re completely capable of doing what the Sandy Hook “Truthers” accuse them of.  Provided they were sufficiently motivated to do so.

So draw straws, or follow your gut feel if you want to believe one side or the other.  And be comforted knowing you’re as likely to be on the side of the angels as anyone holding any other view.

He was captured once before. Was Foley a dual-citizenship American/Israeli?

Hi readers.  Today with tens, maybe hundreds of thousands of ‘Americans’ holding dual Israeli citizenship it isn’t enough to report an ‘American’ journalist was beheaded.  Heck, more than a dozen US Senators hold dual Israeli citizenship.

The fact is, evidently James Foley was held previously with other journalists in Libya and one of them was killed.  But Foley returned to the war zone.

Which doesn’t necessarily mean he worked for the CIA or Mossad and richly deserved what he got.  It only means the question is worth considering.  His story of the Libya capture is in the video above, along with the story below:

Journalist James Foley reflects on being captured in Libya

By Lacey Crisp. CREATED Dec 7, 2011 – UPDATED: Dec 7, 2011
 
MILWAUKEE- As a journalist, James Foley says it’s weird being interviewed and says he’d rather be reporting. He says he’s glad that so many people are interested in learning about his days in captivity Libya.
 
“I’ve thought about it a lot, I’ve had hours and hours to think about it. Of course in retrospect you had the signs that we should have pulled back,” Foley explained.
 
Early in April, Marquette grad James Foley and three other journalists went past a check point they knew was pushing the limits.
 
“At one point we said, this is dangerous, but we don’t want to go back yet,” Foley said.
 
The group of journalists was shot at and three were taken into custody.  Photographer Anton Hammerl was shot and killed.
 
“We were thrown in the back of the truck and zip tied for hours,” Foley said.
 
Foley explains he was treated well during his captivity, but admits the first day was brutal.
 
“We were knocked around.”

Then, nearly three weeks after his capture, Foley was able to call home.
 
“I was just praying, let my mom be home, because I didn’t know her cell phone number!”
 
His last night in Tripoli he spent at the Hungarian Embassy and was able to see for himself on the Internet the outpouring of love and prayers from his friends back in Milwaukee.
 
“I saw a vigil on YouTube somehow, and I clicked on a few links. I said, this is unbelievable.”
 
Foley says it was that love and support from his Marquette friends that kept him strong.
 
“I can’t babysit, rake enough leaves, paint enough interiors to every repay them,” Foley said.
 
Three months after Foley’s release he went back to Libya and was there when leader Moammar Ghaddafy was killed.
 
He says he will continue reporting in war-torn areas.

 If he held a dual citizenship of US and Israeli he was traveling on dangerous ground.  Similar to being a resident of Gaza over the past few weeks.  And he was innocent of any wrongdoing and still got beheaded, well, so did a lot of innocent people in Gaza.  Thousands.

Being an ‘American’ doesn’t mean a person isn’t a foaming at the mouth kill’em all and let God sort them out Zionist hiding behind US citizenship papers.
