Letter to the Wisconsin State Journal (unpublished, of course):
A Sandy Hook Skeptic Replies
As a former Marine Corps officer and Distinguished McKnight Professor Emeritus, I probably don’t fit most preconceptions of a “conspiracy theorist”. The phrase was introduced by the CIA to trivialize efforts to debunk The Warren Report (1964), which claimed JFK was shot by a “lone gunman”. The skeptics were right.
Since my retirement from the Duluth Campus of the University of Minnesota in 2006, I have been devoting myself to research on politically significant events, including 9/11, Sandy Hook, and the Boston bombing, where the government might have reasons to conceal the truth or even orchestrate the event itself.
Mike Palecek and I were troubled by reports coming from Newtown that day and thought it would be worth investigating on behalf of the American public to sort out truth from fiction. We brought together 13 experts, including 6 current or retired Ph.D. professors, in our book, Nobody Died at Sandy Hook (2015; 2nd ed., 2016).
We discovered that the school had been closed by 2008, that there were no students there and that it was organized by the Obama administration to promote gun control, as members of the Obama Department of Eduction admitted to Paul Preston, one of our contributors, when he contacted them.
That means any death certificates for decedents from Sandy Hook have to be fabrications. But the Court ruled that I could not introduce any of that evidence but only the authenticity of the death certificate published in the book, which I described as a fabrication. Some of my reasons were wrong, but I was right.
It is uncertified and, in Connecticut, not even parents are allowed to have copies of uncertified death certificates. Mr. Zimmerman introduced copies of certified death certificates he claimed were in the Plaintiff’s possession, but they were not the certificate published in the book, which I had accurately faulted.
You quote him as saying that we relied upon “copies of copies of copies” of the death certificate “that we found somewhere on the internet”, as though the copy we published had not been provided to Kelley Watt by the Plaintiff himself and as though digital technology does not preserve exact reproduction.
I had never seen the certified copy of the death certificate attached to the complaint when I was served on 29 November 2018. And I cannot believe that I now face a possible $1,000,000 liability based upon a death certificate that I had never before seen or commented upon before I was served in this case.
Not only is the death certificate discussed in the book bogus on its face–because it does not have the certification of the Town Registrar on its left-hand side–but the law is being used to punish those who are exposing falsehoods and revealing truths about what happened at Sandy Hook. The public deserves better.
