Leonard Pozner v Prof. Jim Fetzer

On 17th June 2019, Dane County judge, the Honourable Frank Remington (Branch 8 of the court), decided that Prof. James Fetzer had defamed Leonard Pozner by claiming that the death certificate for his son, Noah Pozner, who has been alleged to have died at the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting on 14th December 2012, which Pozner had posted on a blog, is a fabrication. They did not claim that Leonard Pozner himself forged the death certificate, but were found guilt of defamation in spite of obvious proof that the document is, in fact, a fabrication, which the Defendants believe was wrongly rendered and which was contrary to the reports of two expert document examiners that all four of the death certificates that have surfaced in this case are fake. The outcome of the trial was reported by the Wisconsin State Journal on 18th June 2019.

This fraudulent allegation against Prof. Fetzer, as well as the entire equally fraudulent court case against him, is utterly preposterous as it is well established beyond a shadow of a doubt that there had in fact been no school shooting as the entire event had been a FEMA drill, staged at a school that had closed years earlier, to defraud the American public in order to promote gun control through deception and terrorising of the American public. Even the manual for the FEMA drill is available.

The fact that the Sandy Hook incident was a FEMA drill is now an internationally well-known fact established by several high profile investigators and PhDs with the evidence collected in Prof. James Fetzer’s and Mike Palacek’s book Nobody Died at Sandy Hook that can be found below.

A summary of the flaws with the judgement can be found on Prof. Fetzer’s website and in the interview with him below, recorded on 18th June 2019 by Dr. Horton.

Correction of Press Reports by Prof. Fetzer

The following is an article posted by Prof. Fetzer after the court hearing and has been reprinted here with kind permission of Prof. Fetzer:

The Dane County Court has ruled (in our opinion, improperly) deciding the case of “Pozner v. Fetzer” and the international mainstream media has run with a grossly distorted report of the key issue, where the Plaintiff’s Attorney, Jake Zimmerman, claimed that we, Mike Palecek and I, had found the document that was the subject of the lawsuit by an Internet search, when it was publicly posted by the Plaintiff for Kelley Watt.

So I wrote to the Wisconsin State Journal, which, like the rest of the mainstream media worldwide, has been covering this wrongful decision with all of the enthusiasm it ought to have shown when we first published, Nobody Died at Sandy Hook: It was a FEMA Drill to Promote Gun Control (2015), but which, instead, like amazon.com in banning the book, has refused to inform the public of this elaborate ruse and scam.

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.

As with so much in life and politics, things are not quite as they seem to be, where this was not a suit about defamation (for which truth is an absolute defend) but about suppressing freedom of speech and freedom of the press. The Deep State does not want the American people to grasp the extent to which they have been bamboozled by their own government. I submitted this [see document below] to the Court, but the judge admitted that he did not read it.
