Prof: Newtown Didn't Happen, It Was a Hoax by the Obama Administration
Adjust text size:
Professor and conspiracy theorist James Tracy, of the Florida Atlantic University, is claiming that the Newtown massacre never occurred. In his view, it was just a political marketing stunt by the Obama administration.
He set up a blog
, pointing out the “holes” in the Sandy Hook timeline. He finds inconsistencies in the series of events related by the press.
“While it sounds like an outrageous claim, one is left to inquire whether the Sandy Hook shooting ever took place -- at least in the way law enforcement authorities and the nation's news media have described,” James writes.
Media played a big part in spreading the news on the Newtown shooting.
“As documents relating to the Sandy Hook shooting continue to be assessed and interpreted by independent researchers, there is a growing awareness that the media coverage of the massacre of 26 children and adults was intended primarily for public consumption to further larger political ends,” he adds.
According to Radar Online
, the school is not pleased with the professor's comments.
“James Tracy does not speak for the university. The website on which his post appeared is not affiliated with FAU in any way,” media director Lisa Metcalf says.
47-year-old Tracy teaches a class named “Culture of Conspiracy” at FAU. He was a union leader and is currently employed as an associate professor of media history with the University.
The scholar claims that news of Sandy Hook was meant to influence voters on the issue of gun control. If this were true, it definitely worked, with heated debates on the subject still going on, following the incident.
Just yesterday, we reported about Piers Morgan's issue with radio personality Alex Jones. A British citizen, Morgan made a very public statement lobbying for gun control on his show.
As a result, Jones created a petition for him to be deported. He went on to lash out on his show
, when he was invited as a guest.

I agree with the professor, theres so many HOLES in this story, If u idiots would spend an hour researching on the case/facts/evidence..You would think the same as the professor does, instead of being brainwashed by the media...1) How does a teacher SOTO have a R.I.P page on facebook four days before she was 'so called killed'. 2) good robbie parker, right before he is being interviewed by the media, check out his 'acting', does a terrible job - about his daughter being killed in the massacre, the same daughter - who just so happens to take a photo with OBAMA when he visits the town. 3) How come both massacre dads of the Batman/Newtown massacre were set to testify in the LIBOR scandal that has rocked the financial districts, Why were we told that the kids were shot with rifle bullets, & when they found the shooter in the school, they found hand guns on him & his rifle was in his vehicle, theres more holes in this story that just doesn't add up at all..Do your own research before your fed by the media....

For heaven's sake. Perhaps he should ask the parents of those children if it really happened. I am completely against gun control of any kind, but this man is being ridiculous. He has every right to voice his opinion, but really. Common sense has never been the strong point of any college professor, but this really takes the cake, and he should not be surprised at the reaction he's getting.
|Comment #2.1 by: Tony on 16 Jan 2013, 15:04 GMT|
Why was Victoria Soto's RIP memorial Facebook page created on Dec. 10th? Why were two different fundraising websites for sandy hook massacre created on Dec. 11th and Dec. 12th? Why was Mr. Parker laughing and joking just before his press conference the day after the supposed shooting? These are FACTS. If you can't answer the above questions, you should have nothing more to say.

You're right--it's not obamas fault-nothing ever is. Lets just blame it on George W Bush-obama and the dummocrats blame everything on him anyway.

try saying that to the parents who lost their kids
|Comment #18.1 by: Tony on 16 Jan 2013, 15:08 GMT|
Like Mr parker, who was caught on camera laughing and joking just before his press conference? He then did a presto changeo and suddenly became distraught after asking if he should just read from the card.
|Comment #19 by: "gramma from Monroe Ct. on 09 Jan 2013, 19:18 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Tell that to the parents that lost their children..who cares HOW it happened..or the exact times of things happening..I don't think the children or teachers being shot were "watching" the clock..I am a native of Monroe..the neighboring town and some of my high school classmates have lost a grandchild..so professor Tracy...better backtrack before he loses ANY or all of his teaching credibility(sp)..

You know what other major news story had major inconsistencies? All of them! In this last election there were news agencies that reported that Mitt Romney won.
Have you ever witnessed an accident or any other crime you had to write a police report on? Did you notice how everyone had a different version of what "really" happened?
As a scientist, Professor Tracy should not be asking if there are inconsistencies in the reporting (because there ALWAYS are) he should be asking "are there more inconsistencies in this story than there have been in other similar events?"
There were thousands of witnesses who saw the shooting. The government is not capable of keeping that many people quiet. If someone who was there said it didn't happen the way it was reported, that person would instantly become famous, whether they were lying or not. So that begs the question: why aren't ANY of the witnesses coming forward when they'd have so much to gain?
Or ask yourself this: if the government came to you and said it was going to kill 26 people and then claim it was a random gun man, would you be able to stay silent about that? I wouldn't.

For those that didn't bother reading the article. He said it didn't happen like the media reported it happened. Or in other words, 26 people were killed BUT the media was reporting false information about how things happened. Maybe the media was feed false information or???? Please pay attention and think for yourself.
|Comment #22.1 by: Haingman on 17 Jan 2013, 04:25 GMT|
Probably the most intelligent comment here, but... Like all the others, no attempt to explain the documented, provable and very real inconsistencies and outright conflicting information.
After all, if one is to have an opinion, it should be supported by fact, and asking questions until a coherent story emerges is possible for even a low IQ Flatfoot Patrolman. There is certainly glaring, physically impossible facts that contradict the official story. So what is the real story? If my child was harmed or killed in this event, I would want to know even more-so. But as long as our nation remains so divided on the smokescreen of right and left, conservative and liberal, Republican and Democrat, We will continue to be robbed, killed, and unfree at best. I don't know what happened at Sandy Hook, but I will continue to look for the truth.

I think half of the commentators on this article only read the title and nothing further. There is a difference between didnt happen and didnt happen the way it is being told. The media purposely used that title to reel in readers and create a heated debate.
|Comment #24 by: dani on 16 Jan 2013, 18:51 UTC|| reply to this comment|
think about it people. use your own brains and look at facts and every bit of information out there, not want people tell you happened. i agree with this professor. it wouldnt be the first time the government did something like this. most of you remember 9/11 right? i believe THAT was the one of the biggest cover ups in our history. you people who believe government and depend on this government with be SOL when the government takes away ALL your rights. so many people are brainwashed and cant see the real truth. i feel sorry for u people yet will have NO sympathy for you when * really hits the fan!
