It’s a bit long, but well worth your time. Give the content some serious thought!
Sandy Hook, Revisited
by The Bunker
This is not an easy post for me to do. I have been working on a separate post about denial and I find myself wanting to deny what I am about to lay out. But, something has come to my attention that needs to be put out into the greater public realm. This is about the Sandy Hook school shooting of December 14, 2012. There is an enormous amount of misinformation floating around on the internet. Much of it borders on scandalous.
Recently one person has stepped forward who is not a kook or basement dwelling internet conspiracy theorist. Wolfgang W. Halbig is a legitimate expert. His credentials are meticulous. You can view them on his Facebook page. Here is just a brief outline:
Childrens Safety Institute, (cached biography), Wolfgang Halbig (entire site removed)
Wolfgang is a nationally recognized school safety and security professional who has done extensive work in researching and developing the “Standards for Safe Schools”. He is an expert witness in the field of school safety and security. He has testified before a Congressional Commission studying school safety and security. Wolfgang was the former Executive Director of the National Institute for School and Workplace Safety. Wolfgang was also appointed by the Florida Governor to serve on the State of Florida Safe Schools Commission.
Wolfgang is also the author of a book for educators and school bus drivers on aggressive behavior management and the use of reasonable force, as well as numerous magazine articles. His article on “Breaking the Code of Silence” was published in the March 2000 edition of the American School Board Journal. He has been a featured guest on many national news programs including Dateline NBC, Good Morning America, and MSNBC.
Wolfgang was the Director of Safety and Security for a large public school system in Florida and brings to the company a national reputation in school safety, education and law enforcement. He has experience with U.S. Customs and as a Florida State Trooper. After leaving law enforcement, he went into education as a teacher, administrative leader, and finally Director of Safety and Security. His 35 years of work experience is a major asset to any involvement with safety and security.
The reason this biography is from a cached version of the Children’s Safety Institute website is because the site has been pulled. This month Mr. Halbig lost his job with the institute. He has also been visited twice at his home in Florida by detectives from the Lake County Sheriff’s office who were on a mission for the Connecticut State Police. Mr. Halbig was informed that if he didn’t cease and desist with his Freedom of Information requests to various officials in Connecticut he would be arrested and charged with a felony.
A scent that can ease anxiety,
promote a sensation of security,
calmness and control
in an uncomfortable situation.

Ok…I’m taking donations so I can buy this for MY birthday present, coming in about 10 months. Oh…c’mon! You KNOW I need this, right?
….and no, I hadn’t seen it before.
I must be on the wrong planet, or in a parallel universe…the Twilight Zone… cuz this sure can’t be the same place where I was born. It just can’t be!
My country wouldn’t humiliate the military, and treat them like trash. She wouldn’t condemn a person for their belief in God, or those who live by His Word. My country wouldn’t welcome murderers with open arms. My country wouldn’t try to disarm her citizens so they are unable to defend themselves, murder innocent veterans and civilians. My fellow citizens wouldn’t cheer a tyrant! They would fight against him as they have done so many times in the past. My country wouldn’t allow the shredding of the second most important document in the history of the world! My country wouldn’t practically outlaw the first most important.
I wake up every morning, praying I have returned to my country, the land of my birth. The nation were God given liberties are prized above all else. Every morning, I am, once again, horrified to find myself in this place. A place where I am labeled an extremist for believing in God, and the liberties HE granted me, laid out in HIS Word, reinforced by the Constitution of the United States. I don’t know what country this is, but I want to go home!
