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.
I was reading a pretty terrific column yesterday called Israel: A failed state by Charles Abelsohn. Mr Abselsohn went looking for the ‘apartheid’ in Israel that so many claim to exist, like the over educated morons at Tufts University. It’s quite obvious to me that those idiotic students have never been to Israel, and insist on believing the propaganda spread by the non existent palestinians and those blowhards that stand in front of a classroom and spew hatred.
Mr Abselsohn’s search for apartheid in Israel was a complete failure. Everywhere he went on his quest, “Arabs and Jews were mixing peacefully“, no matter the setting; banks, beaches, shopping areas, it didn’t matter, there was no apartheid. No where in Israel are palestinians not allowed to go.
I remember the signs in the South, “Whites Only”, “Colored Waiting Room”, etc., rather like you would have seen in South Africa, where apartheid was very real, and very wrong in both places. There were no signs “Arabs/muslims not allowed” as you might expect from the propaganda those feckless students, and many like them, want you to believe.
Oddly enough, there was not even a hint of apartheid in universities, hospitals, or even the Israeli army where you have “Ethiopians, Beduin Arabs, Christian Arabs, Moslem Arabs, Druse and Circassians (Moslems originally from the Northern Caucuses)“. Is that what those kids think is apartheid? Do those brains of mush know there have been 69 NON Jewish members of the Knesset since Israel’s founding in 1948? I doubt it!
But who in the area has and DOES implement apartheid? The rumor must have come from somewhere, right? Well, in truth, it’s the palestinians themselves who have done so, through “legislation forbidding the sale of property to Jews; the sentence for transgressions: death.” “There are no Jews or Israelis living in Areas A & B under Palestinian Authority control.”
When the Mr and I went to Israel in 2008, our Israeli guide wasn’t even allowed into Bethlehem, although those living in that city were allowed leave without too many problems. Yes, there was a wall, but that was for the safety of Israel, NOT to imprison those living there. The unbelievable hatred I saw in the eyes of even the palestinian police was very disconcerting. The graffiti seen on the walls was more than a little disturbing. There were other areas we didn’t visit because Avi was forbidden entrance. Why? Because he is a Jew. But everywhere we went, with the exception of Bethlehem, and Jordon, there were Jews and Arabs, side by side, working peacefully, in shops, restaurants, any number of places we visited. Muslims live in Israel, have Israeli citizenship, and can vote in Israeli elections.
Mr Abelsohn finally found apartheid. “The Palestinians have announced that no Jews or Israelis will be entitled to live in their state after it is founded.“ I pray that state is never founded.
If ya hadn’t noticed…I’m not posting a whole lot. Why? Well, because I just haven’t felt up to it the last month or so. Between the pain of my spine, and the dreadful disease, I just haven’t had a lot to say that didn’t involved four lettered words like… OUCH! Oh, and a few others I won’t mention. The weather has had a major effect on the bones, and my inability to stay awake, has left me, well, rather speechless. Heh.
Well, while the bod has decided to rebel, the brain is still functional….mostly. So, here’s a little poem I came up with that I’d like to share.
Winter, winter, go away!
I no longer want to play.
If you come back way too soon,
I’ll become a raving loon.
Hey! My name ain’t Emily Dickinson, so shaddup! Hmmm… wonder if I should trademark that, or patent it, or whatever ya do with crappy poetry.
Anyway, I’ll post when I can, what I can, and I’ll just have to deal with it, and thank God I’m still reasonably functional. Which I do, y’know! My hinder works REAL well.
New U.S. Immigration Policy Welcomes Terrorists
UPDATE: The German family has since been given an indefinite extension so they will be able to stay. Apparently, the outrage from WE, The People got a few folks nervous up there in the so called Justice Department.
Was it intentional that so few Senators showed up when the Dalai Lama, who was INVITED, came to give a prayer? Now, I don’t happen to agree with his choice of religion, but he just happens to be very important to a large number of people in this world, and I think if you invite someone to say an invocation, you damn sure better show him the same respect you’d show to any other invited guest and show up! This is down right embarrassing!
Well, if the ever useless, yet extremely greedy, algore and incompetent Barack can get a “peace prize”, why not Vladimir? It’s nothing but a political stunt anyway, and really means absolutely nothing, and does nothing for peace!
Folks in this area kept holding out hope that Holly would be found, alive. An arrest has been made, the charges – Especially Aggravated Kidnapping and Felony First Degree Murder – this beautiful young lady. West Tennessee, all of Tennessee, mourns with the family and friends of Mz Bobo.
Why, pray tell, would Crimea want to live under the thumb of Putin? Do people really think he’s going to stop at an imaginary line? Bush made a HUGE mistake letting him invade Georgia. Obama, and the EU are making an even bigger mistake by allowing him a piece of Ukraine. Once KGB, always KGB. In other words, a freakin’ communist!
I don’t know why ‘the establishment’ thinks the Tea Party has lost steam! Well, as in most elections, money talks, but then again, in others, it’s not money that wins elections….it’s character. To us, character is a whole lot more important than money. Principles win! Don’t ever count out WE, The People!
An example of algore’s global warming:
91% of the Great Lakes are frozen, which will lead to flooding as they melt. I know some folks up in Wisconsin who are praying for some warm weather! They are tired of all that ‘global warming’ they’ve been experiencing!
What the hell has happened to Apple? First, that assclown says if you are a climate change denier, sell your stock, or don’t invest. What kind of person doesn’t want people to invest in their company? Now, they are denying a family access to their dead mother’s iPad because they need written permission from the DEAD woman. What the hell??
Apparently, Senator Cruz brought down the house at CPAC this morning.

John F. Kennedy was in the White House for less than three years and, if you think he screwed a lot of hookers, just look what he did to our foreign policy.
Six months after becoming president, JFK had his calamitous meeting with Nikita Khrushchev in Vienna — a meeting The New York Times described as “one of the more self-destructive American actions of the Cold War, and one that contributed to the most dangerous crisis of the nuclear age.” (The Times admitted that a half-century later. At the time, the Newspaper of Record lied about the meeting.)
For two days, Khrushchev batted Kennedy around, leaving the president’s own advisers white-faced and shaken. Kennedy’s Assistant Secretary of Defense Paul Nitze called the meeting “just a disaster.”
Khrushchev was delighted to discover that the U.S. president was so “weak.” A Russian aide said the American president seemed “very inexperienced, even immature.”
