REUTERS: Fired prof and Sandy Hook doubter can proceed with conspiracy claims v. college

At least one conspiracy theory espoused by former Florida Atlantic University professor James Tracy has been deemed to have enough credibility to move forward in federal court, according to a ruling last week by U.S. District Judge Robin Rosenberg of West Palm Beach. Judge Rosenberg said Tracy – who is best known for asserting the U.S. government staged the 2012 massacre of 26 first-graders and educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in order to promote gun control laws – can move forward with his claims that Florida Atlantic conspired with union officials to violate his constitutional rights.

Tracy was fired from the university in 2016, ostensibly for failing to submit required paperwork disclosing outside activities, which, in his case, included writing a blog called Memory Hole. The ex-prof subsequently claimed in a complaint against the university, its board of trustees, several college officials, the Florida Education Association, his union local and top union officials that the college’s true motive was to end any association between Florida Atlantic and Tracy’s much-reviled writings on Sandy Hook. He claimed, among other things, that the school and the union that was supposed to represent his interests cooperated in a plan to keep Tracy from trying to get his job back, in violation of the professor’s First and Fourteenth Amendment rights.

Tracy, a tenured professor in the school’s communications department, has created controversy for Florida Atlantic since early 2013, when he began publishing blog posts about, in the words of his complaint, “questionable video and photographic evidence” and “incomplete national media coverage of the (Sandy Hook) incident and how it has and continues to be used by politicians, legislators, lobbyists and others to misappropriate massive amounts of public tax dollars and charitable donations from sympathizers and unsuspecting Americans, and to promote and install irrational and unconstitutional reforms upon the American public.” After Tracy’s posts began to receive national attention, including on CNN, the university fielded hundreds of requests for his ouster, including editorials in the Broward Sun-Sentinel.
Tracy insisted that he wrote the blog on his own time and that it reflected his personal views. He also said the blog fell outside of Florida Atlantic’s disclosure requirements for outside activities. In September 2013 – with the aid of union officials – Tracy reached a settlement with the school in which he agreed to remove Florida Atlantic’s name from the blog, including from a disclaimer in which he said he was only expressing personal views.

Florida Atlantic tweaked its disclosure policy for outside involvement in the fall of 2015. Tracy refused to affirm his compliance with the policy, occasioning a series of meetings and email among college officials. Tracy sought advice from the union, which supposedly told him to comply with the regulation and file a grievance. But before Tracy signed the affirmance, he received a disciplinary notice for failing to do so. According to Tracy’s complaint, he asked his union to file a grievance but was informed the union would not do so.

PROOF: Noah Pozner did not die at Sandy Hook

Larry Rivera has done brilliant research proving that the figure known as “Doorman” standing in the doorway of the Texas School Book Depository was in fact Lee Oswald, as Harold Weisberg, Jim Garrison and other serious students of JFK have believed. So I was sure he could help to resolve this issue by superposition:

Larry found that these were the photos that best facilitated the superposition, where the eyes, the eyebrows and the mouth align almost perfectly. The key is fixing the inter-pupillary distance (between the pupils of their eyes) the same. I knew he could help to resolve this issue by superposition. Here is a series that demonstrates that, in spite of their age difference, considering normal growth, Noah and Michael are one and the same:

This has to be one of the most powerful proofs yet that Sandy Hook was a hoax. Lenny had already been outed by having sent Kelley Watt a “death certificate” for Noah Pozner that turned out to be a fabrication. If Noah had died at Sandy Hook, Lenny would not have had to fake it. This is another example of the power of collaborative research using the internet as an instrument of investigation, which resulted in Nobody Died at Sandy Hook (2015).
In their motion to dismiss Tracy’s conspiracy allegations, union and university officials said the single meeting at the heart of the ex-prof’s allegations was not sufficient evidence of a plot to get rid of him. “Without providing any additional context with regard to this meeting, the Plaintiff suggests that it is reasonable to infer that … the union defendants and the university defendants would join forces to ensure that the plaintiff’s employment would be terminated and that the Union defendants would aid and abet the termination, all in an effort to punish the plaintiff for the views he expressed in his blog,” the brief said. “While it is conceivable that such a conspiracy was hatched at this meeting, given the assistance previously provided to the plaintiff by the union defendants to protect the plaintiff’s right to express his personal views via his blog, the Plaintiff’s recitation of facts … does not present a plausible assertion.”

Moreover, the defendants said, the meeting between union and college officials took place after Tracy received a notice of discipline, so the union was only implicated in the supposed violation of Tracy’s due process right to file a grievance against the university – a recourse that Tracy himself chose not to pursue. And unless Tracy could show the union’s participation in the conspiracy, the defendants said, there could be no conspiracy because the university defendants all acted on behalf of a single entity.

Those arguments failed to persuade Judge Rosenberg. The judge had previously dismissed an earlier version of Tracy’s suit, but she said his amended complaint included detailed allegations that plausibly alleged a conspiracy against him. In particular, Judge Rosenberg rejected the defendants’ argument that the union was not involved in the supposed plot to violate Tracy’s First Amendment right to express his opinions on his blog, despite her previous holding that Tracy had not been denied procedural due process.
Judge Rosenberg signaled where she’d end up in the introduction of her opinion, which said, “This is a case about the First Amendment right to free speech.” That’s a good sign for Tracy as he moves forward, since, after all, that’s how he wants the judge to view the case. The university wants the judge to think of the litigation as a run-of-the-mill employment dispute pumped up with constitutional claims. Based on Judge Rosenberg’s dismissal opinion, the school still has some work to do.

I left messages for Tracy counsel Joel Medgebow and university counsel Joseph Curley of Gunster Yoakley & Stewart but didn’t hear back.

  1. The answer to your question is no, because the federal government is involved here in the form of the DHS. Obama and Holder both knew this operation was going to take place. We have screenshots from the government websites for FEMA/DHS that a drill was going to take place in Newtown CT that day. We have solid photographs of vehicles and personnel already in place at the nonfunctioning school at daybreak the day of the so called massacre.

  2. Lenny Pozner(name not confirmed) seems to be far more interested in protecting his private information which is why he went after Mr. Halbig. He cannot defend anything about Sandy Hook because so much has already been proven in court through FOIA hearings that the entire operation was a fraud. He doesn't want anyone to know about his personal background and this is the nature of his beef with Mr. Halbig. He and his lawyer were both no shows for the December hearing. So now Mr. Halbig has asked for all kind of discovery that I will be they cannot provide. Mr.Pozner will end up dropping this lawsuit because he doesn;t want to blow his cover as a crisis actor. He tried floating a "death" certificate of Noah Pozner and it was proven a fraud within hours. I believe the saying goes–You cannot prove a lie. And he can't. So his only defense is trying to go after someone personally, then when the tables are turned he fails to show up. That spoke volumes to the court I am sure. The Sandy Hook event is being outed more and more every day and every year. If they think they've got lawsuits on their hands now, they are still collecting money for all these nonexistent kids. When the people realize they have been defrauded, there will be no end to the court cases. They can also no longer look to the media for any kind of legitimacy because the average American is fed up with all the lies and propaganda that they now know has been perpetrated on them by the American media. American media deligitimized themselves, especially after this most recent election. They have zero crediblity.

  3. I am convinced of the fraud at Sandy Hook. However, I wonder if the State of Connecticut can be 'impeached' so-to-speak from the Union. That is can they be de-Federated leaving 49 states only in the Union? Surely this is the only fair outcome.

  4. The Sun Sentinel is another worthless piece of journalistic lies and garbage. If the duped public would do their duty and stop reading this and stop advertising in it, every American would be better off. Even if one were to "excuse" them for their early support of Sandy Hook, the evidence now is absolutely clear it was a shameful hoax on America. All one really needs to believe this is the fact that the school was not even a functioning school on the day of the alleged hoax and had been closed for about four years earlier due to toxic contamination. Americans have virtually no critical abilities to analyze claims and come to a correct decision as to which is truth or fiction. Worthless editors and newspapers like this one only make things worse. "Advertisements are the only truths to be relied on in a newspaper." Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson was one of the genius level Founders of America and he could not be fooled like the idiots today who occupy this country. He would have immediately recognized the Sandy Hook Hoax.

  5. Has Lenny protested any of these claims either in writing or by filing a court action? Assuming these claims are false he should easily be able to dispute them in a court of law or even by letters. Of course the last thing he wants is to end up in a courtroom where he must make only truthful statements under the penalties of perjury instead of the constant lies for public consumption. This also likely why he missed his recent court appearance with Wolfgang. Perhaps a government agency is working to cook up some fake evidence to dispute these claims as they cooked up the whole fake Sandy Hook Hoax to fool the whole country. This is why citizens must be able to file claims against government agencies and the criminals who run them and overcome all the outrageous secrecy laws which only serve to protect all this criminal activity by government from exposure.
