Debunking the Sandy Hook Debunkers: #1 Was this an operational school?

by Jim Fetzer

Enough objections have been raised that it appears to be timely to respond to some of the attempts to undermine our research. Our book, NOBODY DIED AT SANDY HOOK (2015), provides 425 pages of photos, documents and other records that substantiate that this was not a child massacre but a two-day FEMA drill to promote gun control. No one who reads the book has any doubt about it, where we have a large number of 5-STAR reviews from those who have read the book, offset by a lesser number of 1-STAR reviews by critics who have not. This suggests a certain desperation to suppress interest in what we have discovered by the perps themselves.

One of the web site attacking us (without merit, as I shall show) goes by the name, SANDY HOOK COVENANT, has challenged our conclusion that Sandy Hook Elementary School had been closed by 2008 and was then refurbished to be used as a stage in 2012. This brief video makes it case by flashing a few documents, which others have done in greater quantity. But documents are easy to fake--and would have been a high priority in planning this event. More interesting is the photograph of patents dropping off a child at the school. Here is the school in operational condition and completely different than it was at the time of the alleged shooting. Check it out:

What may be most revealing is a photo of the school when it was in operational condition and had an appearance completely different than it had at the time of the alleged shooting in December of 2012. The inclusion of this photo was clearly intentional but without any appreciation for its role in comparing the appearance of the school after it had been abandoned in 2008 on multiple grounds, including that it was loaded with asbestos and other bio-hazards.

SANDY HOOK COVENANT cites an earlier article of mine, "Sandy Hook Elementary School: Closed in 2008, a stage in 2012" veterans (15 April 2014), which I co-authored with Amanda. But while he cites the article, he simply ignores the evidence it provides that establishes beyond a reasonable doubt that Sandy Hook Elementary School WAS close by 2008, where we know that it was used as a stage in 2012. The four lines of proof presented here, by the way, were included in that article, which he doesn't acknowledge because they show his position is absurd.

The condition of the school--inside and out--demonstrates that it was in deplorable condition, far from what would be expected of a fashionable and wealthy community such as Sandy Hook. I was there with Wolfgang Halbig, when we visited the Newtown School Board, and I was very favorably impressed by the condition of a soccer field we visited, where the field was beautifully manicured with every blade of grass was trim. The school should have looked like it does in this photograph:

Four lines of argument are presented, (1) that there was an absence of computer activity at the school between 2008 and 2012; (2) that the school was not in compliance with state and federal laws implementing the Americans with Disabilities Act; (3) that the school was in violation of fire codes; and (4) that it was an environmental disaster. Among these four, the first seems to have drawn the strongest objections; but it could be dispensed with and the conclusion--that Sandy Hook Elementary School had been abandoned by 2008--would remain copiously documented.

(1) Sandy Hook had no computer activity

Interestingly, there was a recorded absence of computer activity at the school from 2008-12, which would be inconceivable unless it had been abandoned and was not actually functioning as an operating school.  The limited activity in early 2008 combined with reemergence of activity in 2013 seems to have been resulted from reactivating the building for its use as a prop in late-2012.

Several web sites, including The Last Great Stand and Fellowship of the Minds, have reported that, by using the Wayback machine (which enables earlier versions of web sites to be accessed, even though they are not current), it is possible to demonstrate that Sandy Hook Elementary School had no internet activity from 2008 until late 2012 in striking contrast to other elementary schools:
In a video that you can watch on YouTube, a man who calls himself “Jungle Surfer” claims to have found “proof” that Sandy Hook Elementary School was closed 5 years before the alleged massacre. Using the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine, Jungle Surfer says he found no Internet activity from the location of SHES at 12 Dickenson Dr, Sandy Hook, CT 06482.
Below is a screenshot I took of the Wayback Machine showing the school’s lack of Internet activity since the beginning of the year 2008 through 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. You can also see it for yourself by going here.

SHES on Wayback MachineReader “Christopher Marlowe” wrote this comment on March 7, 2014, on a blog that posted Jungle Surfer’s video on the Wayback Machine:
The proof is sublime. The wayback machine isn’t perfect, but it doesn’t lie. The site was accessed each year,  from 2000 to 2008, and then NOTHING until 2013.
The wayback machine uses the googlebot crawls to preserve pictures of the site on a given day. (Brief research reveals that the bots record a snapshot when the site is updated, but my own testing shows that there is a heavy tie-in to the amount of web traffic….)
Other dead sites show a drop-off similar to what we see in the sandy hoax school:
Or let’s compare apples to apples, shall we?

(2) Sandy Hook was non-ADA compliant

Another telling indication that Sandy Hook Elementary was not an operating school is the absence of designated parking for handicapped Americans, which is a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which was passed by Congress in 1990.  It has been implemented by specific requirements for ramps and special parking designated for the disabled, none of which appears to be present at Sandy Hook Elementary more than two decades later.  Here are Connecticut’s general statutory requirements:
State of Connecticut implementationHere is a photograph of the school taken on the day of the shooting.  Notice that the handicapped parking areas are not properly demarcated with white paint and blue markings. There are no “above grade signs with white lettering against a blue background” that bear the words, “handicapped parking permit required” and “violators will be fined”, which means that Sandy Hook Elementary School was non-ADA compliant.  That day, CNN was mixing images from other schools with those from Sandy Hook:

Confirmation from

Among the most active web sites discussing Sandy Hook has been maintained by James Tracy, who was among the first to notice anomalies in the press conference held by Connecticut State Medical Examiner Wayne Carver.
Patrick says: February 22, 2014 at 7:07 am
I still remain stuck on the parking lot, lophatt. Bureaucrats are very reliable. They go by the book with the most annoying fastidiousness, and the book at issue here is the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990, which mandated that handicapped parking spots in public parking lots be painted blue.
It is inconceivable that a public grammar school would ignore that requirement for more than two decades. I am not the one around here who first noticed the anomalous parking lot, but ever since this was pointed out it has struck me as definitive evidence that the building, if it was used for anything, had not been used as a school since the 1980s at the latest. I’d call it proof.
John Luv says: February 23, 2014 at 3:29 pm
Musings, I have helped out my handicapped uncle for the greater part of 25 years. All handicapped spots in malls, walmart, doctor’s offices, public buildings, private buildings, apt. buildings, schools, universities etc. have lines that are painted white, and a different color from the surrounding yellow lines. The lines are not blue, but white. The picture of the wheelchair which is painted in the spot is white/blue or blue/white. The sign placards have a blue background with a white caricature of a wheelchair and sometimes vise versa. That doesn’t matter. What does matter is that they are NOT painted yellow, are separate from the yellow lines, and closest to the entrances.
The SHES parking lot was clearly in violation of not only the color scheme, but it was in deplorable condition and probably not resurfaced in over three decades or more. It did have evidence of patching and crack sealing, but nothing else. I guess they didn’t want any of the actors who parked there during the drill to get tire damage from the numerous potholes that were covered over, lol!

(3) Sandy Hook was in violation of fire codes

Comments from public school teachers on YouTube videos have observed that Sandy Hook was “obviously” a decommissioned school and that there was no way it would have been allowed to operate, given all of the fire code violations present (boxes and furniture stacked up in front of windows, near doors and exits) in photographs taken inside the school.  Here are some illustrations:
Consider what those who are familiar with elementary schools have to say about the condition of Sandy Hook, including from a professional plumber, Terry Cronin, who remarked:
Great video Sherrie. I have noticed something from one of the videos inside the school. Video #4 ( scroll down to “Indoor Scene Processing Video” section, click on “WDMCS School Interior 4 of 5”) at 14:10 and then again at 18:28 shows what appear to be remodeled handicapped (ADA compliant) in the children’s bathrooms.
I am a plumber, and it is apparent that all they did to make an ADA compliant stall was remove one of the toilets and an intervening partition, but they left the dirty cast iron toilet flange in place on the floor! This would never pass any kind of code where I am from, much less be left that way in a school. You can also see the capped off pipe sticking out of the wall where the flush valve would have been.
There isn’t a lot of room for doubt that this was not a functioning school, but was being used for the purpose of storage for other schools. Consider these observations:
Good comments
Non-0perational, filthy condition
Perhaps the best of all comes from Stephanie Sliwinski, who makes it unmistakably clear that “it is a common practice for public school districts to use a decommissioned school as a storage yard for old furniture”, which was the function of Sandy Hook.  While her comment originated with the first of these videos, her observations are further substantiated by the second:
Stephanie Sliwinski — Ask ANY teacher, janitor, school administrator, etc it is common practice for public school districts to use a decommissioned school as a storage yard for old furniture and items the district has little use for. This exactly what this is. The Fire Marshall inspects each and every classroom each year (especially THAT close to a fire station where they were driving past it daily) and there is no way in Hell he would approve of all that large and bulky, old furniture boarded up against the windows. What if a fire broke out in the hallway and fire blocked the door? How would small kids escape? The windows at ground level of course. This story stank from the first five minutes. As a former public school teacher for ten years I have never ever seen a working school look like that. Especially not an elementary in an affluent area. Fake fake fake as the day is long.

(4) Sandy Hook was an environmental disaster

The Last Great Stand and Fellowship of the Minds, have also reported that the Newtown School Board was aware of extensive environmental problems with Sandy Hook Elementary School, which was so loaded with bio-hazards that it would have been quite difficult and extremely expensive to have brought the building into compliance with code:
In his recent interview with Wolfgang Halbig, the school safety consultant and former state trooper who calls the Dec. 14, 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting “a contrived scripted event” in the planning for 2-2½ years, Infowars reporter Dan Bidondi said something very intriguing (beginning at the 50:45 mark in the video below):

Bidondi said: “Was this whole thing [Sandy Hook shooting] even staged? Was it real? You have neighbors reporting the school’s been closed down for God knows how long…. They can’t understand why there were kids in that building because it was condemned.”
Indeed, according to local paper The Newtown Bee, nearly 10 months after the shooting on October 5, 2013, a city referendum passed by over 90% authorizing Newtown to move forward with the demolition and rebuilding of Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) with a $49.25 million grant from the State of Connecticut. The Bee says: “Anticipating the referendum would pass, town officials already filed environmental paperwork with the state to move forward with asbestos abatement at the former school, which will dovetail with demolition crews who could be on site by the last week in October.”
What this means is that even without the alleged massacre, the school would have been demolished because of asbestos contamination.
In fact, a search of Newtown Bee‘s archives shows that the town had known about the school’s environmental problems for many years:
  • On October 2, 2002The Bee reports that “The Newtown School District could be looking at a $29.5 million price tag to upgrade its mechanical systems and bring them to code at the four elementary schools and middle school over the next five to six years. Consulting Engineering Services (CES) was hired by the district to study the mechanical systems at Hawley School, Head O’ Meadow School, Middle Gate School, Newtown Middle School, and Sandy Hook School to evaluate the heating and ventilating infrastructure, temperature control, and to see what renovations would need to be performed to upgrade ventilation systems to meet indoor air quality codes. Sandy Hook School … is being recommended by CES to be worked on in 2010 over a nine-month period. It is estimated to cost $4.5 million for heating and ventilation and $400,000 for air conditioning.” That comes to about $5 million, which is puny compared to the $49.25 million state grant Newtown received after the alleged shooting massacre for the demolition and rebuilding of the school. 
  • On April 7, 2003, the Bee reported that “Some studies suggest that as many as 68 percent of school district’s have ‘sick’ buildings ranging from mold to asbestos, radon, pesticides, and the use of improperly ventilated areas as classroom space. For the past five years, teachers in Connecticut have had the highest rate of occupational asthma when compared to other professions.
  • On March 26, 2004 , the Bee reported that “the Board of Education … received the bad news that there were serious problems with the Sandy Hook elementary school roof.”
  • And then there’s this curious Newtown Bee article of November 7, 2008, 4 years before the alleged shooting massacre: “The asbestos levels in Newtown schools pose no threat to the health or safety of those using the schools, according to Superintendent John Reed. The areas in the schools where there is evidence of asbestos … are also considered acceptable and safe.”
  • On October 12, 2012, two months before the alleged school shooting, there’s this curious letter from reader Charles Hepp to The Newtown Beeabout a plan to close an elementary school due to declining enrollment. Hepp wrote, “Six months ago, in April 2012, our Board of Ed voted unanimously to accept a study which laid out a plan for closing an elementary school … the study found that, should our elementary school population fall below 1,500, the BOE should look towards closing an elementary school. We are currently at approximately 1,650 elementary school students.”
  • But then a year after the alleged massacre and after the school had been completely torn down with the demolition workers sworn to confidentialityThe Bee reported on Dec. 2, 2013 that Public Building & Site Commission Chairman Robert Mitchell issued a report that directly contradicts the earlier 2008 assessment that asbestos levels in Newtown’s schools posed no threat to health. Mitchell’s report said “had the town decided to reoccupy the [Sandy Hook Elementary] school on Dickinson Drive, it would have faced a daunting and possibly insurmountable challenge regarding the presence of hazardous materials” because “PCBs were not only discovered in concrete block, but under terrazzo flooring and in sulfur block used in the foundations and footings. In addition, vinyl asbestos tile was discovered under carpeted areas, along with asbestos in the mastic holding insulation to the subfloor tunnel ductwork.”

Sandy Hook had been abandoned by 2008

What we have found–building upon and reporting the previous work of reasonvoiceDr. EowynJungle Surfer and others–we have now established the following:
(a) that there was no computer activity at Sandy Hook Elementary School from 2008-2012;
(b) that Sandy Hook Elementary School was non-compliant with Connecticut’s ADA requirements;
(c) that Sandy Hook Elementary School was in violation of Connecticut’s own fire codes;
(d) that Sandy Hook Elementary School was in deplorable condition as a bio-hazard.
These circumstances could be explained with high probability if Sandy Hook Elementary School had been abandoned in 2008 and was being used by the school district as a storage facility, but they are inexplicable if Sandy Hook Elementary School had been operating during that interval of time. It appears to have been the ideal location to use as stage setting for a shooting drill that would be presented to the world as a children’s massacre, where the American people have been played for saps by (what appears to have been) a cleverly constructed hoax intended to promote gun control and the subversion of the 2nd Amendment and thereby advance the political agenda of the Obama administration.
We would encourage all of our readers to view the photographic and the video evidence for themselves and to share them with others, especially those working at public schools, who should immediately be able to spot the problems with Sandy Hook Elementary School. Since we have only scratched the surface–and no doubt many more anomalies remain to be exposed–here is a link to the Connecticut State Police Sandy Hook Shooting Report. We suggest that readers view the indoor and outdoor scene processing videos and download the 22 photographic evidence files, review them for anomalies, report back here and share their observations in the comments section below.
In many ways, proof that Sandy Hook Elementary School had been abandoned by 2008 may be the most telling of the vast number of arguments we have presented in articles and in the book, NOBODY DIED AT SANDY HOOK (2015). After all, it explains why we had no bodies on the triage tarps, why there was no surge of EMTs into the building, why no Med-Evac chopper was called, and why there was no evacuation of the 469 other students. None of that happened because the school was closed by 2008: there were no students there for Adam Lanza to shoot, no children to rush to hospitals and none in need of evacuation. It proves by itself that this was an elaborate hoax and therefore may be the most encompassing proof of them all.

Rebekah Roth: A fiction producing fiction about a fiction

By Allan William Powell

I think Ms. Roth is a fiction producing fiction about a fiction. 

She keeps the planes in the air. I don't think they were there. She has no history of any kind and I don't mean academic or research. 

She has no Internet footprint that I can find and I would be grateful to anyone who can point me in any direction in that respect who has found anything indicating the presence of a Rebekah Roth, this Rebekah Roth on the Internet. All I see are multiples of the same image when I google. 

She throws Dov Zakheim under the bus for the Pentagon missing $2.3 trillion. He was already there. Rumsfeld threw him there the day before 9/11 in a congressional hearing. She points to the Israelis, the missing 28 pages points to the Saudis. So nothing points to the Bush mafia? 

Now we look at the two potential blameworthy culprits, the Israelis or the Saudis. We disregard the Bush mafia. We debate the blameworthiness. Who did it? 

We know it was not the Arabs claimed by the FBI, most of those characters didn't exist. I think it's all condensing down into a couple of lucrative insurance scams, the obfuscation of a missing $2.3 trill from the pentagon and the starter's pistol for PNAC. 

Ms Roth wants to keep the Israeli aspect on its legs. Wherever she points, it is not Washington and that is her leitmotiv. Keep the eyes off Washington. It was the foreigners, whatever creed or colour. 

No foreigners were able to stand down the air defences, the fighter jets were not scrambled because there was nothing to find. Imagine sending in the fighter jets within six minutes as Ms Roth says they would be and the fighters finding no airliners heading for the towers. 

Ms Roth has the planes up in the air doing something, being hijacked, then landed and the passengers all killed and then, the planes take off and hit the towers?

Dear Rebekah,

I have asked before without success if you would consent to come on the Jim Fetzer show if I were to  be the one asking the questions?

I'm repeating this because of my own curiosity about the accusations that you are not a single identity character.

We both know if you are genuine then the accusations are nonsense.

I know you have had a best seller out of this business and I think it is a matter not only of your own integrity but of the duty of honesty that you owe the readers of your books.

You might be well aware that my own view is that none of the airliners in question were in the air that day.

I would very very grateful for you agreement to appear.

No, I do not have time to argue with idiots, his accusations are insane. Ever since my second book came out he has attacked my character while completely missing WHAT IS EXPOSED in the books.
Now, so you know, I have been joined by military, Air traffic controllers, DARPA people, airline pilots and I have a terabyte of information that has already uncovered still more information.
I have been told by numerous people that this Fetter character has done the same character assassination to everyone that has stepped into the 911 truth.
I will not argue with him, he is a proven liar, I got an email from someone that was accused of being one of my identities and HE IS A MAN in Australia! So his false accusations have proven him to be a liar to many in the truth movement.
I am about finding the truth for the crew members and passengers that gave their lives that day, and nothing more.
I could care less what this lunatic conspiracy nutjob says, many people know he is lying and only using my name to get hits on his blog or you tube channel.
Don’t ask again, I am busy writing another novel to expose the new findings and a nonfiction book.

[As Wolfgang Halbig uses FOI requests and court actions to unearth more damning information suggesting that the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was fraudulent, he and his loved ones are experiencing increased harassment, including “gangstalking” and death threats.

I need to share with all my Sandy Hook Justice supporters that what happened yesterday to my wife being harrassed at her workplace with her work e-mails and all the people who work for her where also harrassed with their work e-mails which is uncalled for.
My wife loves her job and this has now caused us me to make a decison. I cannot do this by myself begging for donations and then be slammed by these scumbags everyday that I am a FRAUD.
I thought that the donations would also help me in hiring Private Investigators which this case urgently needs. Whoever takes this on in my place I will suport you and transfer funds remaining.
I cannot loose my wife of 39 years and to hurt her and my family when she has nothing absolutley nothing to do with this investigation is very cruel.
They are now stalking me physically, taken pictures of me while traveling and then telling me that I should not give the ducks to my grandchildren because they have been specially prepared makes me think some kind of poison has been added to those ducks.
The ducks make it seem funny but when you specially prepare them for my grandchildren and then give me a warning it must be true.
My phone number will not change, my home address will not change but I need to step away so these people whoever they are will leave my family in piece and not hurt them.

Subject: Why is your office hesitant in protecting my family and I simply because I am investigating the Sandy Hook School Shooting?
Sheriff Borders:
You and I know each other and I respect you in your position who can make things happen in protecting someone is in fear of his family and my own life.
I do not know what else I can do in requesting help from your office.
Officer Hauss comes to my home after requesting assistants form your office.
He refused to read or look at any documents that would show my concerns for me and my family.
He simply told me to fill out a report and the Investigators will come out and handle it from there.
The problem is that Officer House decided that the incident only rises to the level of a misdemeanor which I have a hard time believing since he refused to look at any documents.
Corporal Bedgood came out after I complaint of Officers Hauss visits and how he decided the course of action which was do nothing.
I told Corporal Bedgood that I am in fear for my family’s safety as well as mine.
When I am being targeted with Cyber Attacks and Stalking and having someone place an object in my mailbox in Red Tail a Gated Community then I perceive we have a problem
I have attached for you my concernsidentified in which the other two refused to look at or take those documents with them for investigators to review .
My request to find out who these people are which I identified four main players it was said that this would be to costly to investigate.
When threats in my opinion place me and my family in fear it should not be a deputy deciding whether we are in fear for our lives since they have not read all of the documents.
My father was in a Nazi Prison Camp in Poland for over 3 years and the Cyber Attack with labeling me as a Nazi leader is in my opinion that this is a serious HATE CRIME.
Hiding behind a First Amendment Right for Free Speech should not protect these individuals who know what they are doing in daily Harassment, Intimidation, threats to poison my grandchildren in special prepared items.
They placed me on notice after watching me receive those items not to give them to my grandchildren. Your deputies could not see the connection hopefully you can as the Sheriff.
I need to issue Restraining orders on the four individuals that that Corporal Bedgood has. I cannot issues those orders unless I know their True Identity which they did not get either. I even told them that I would pay for finding them if the sheriff office could not afford it.
So please help me Sheriff it is my family that is all I have.
