Chachi loves tin foil

Chachi loves tin foil

Have I ever mentioned how I really can’t stand conspiracy theorists? I especially can’t stand them when they claim an incident where innocent lives are lost is a ‘false flag‘. These people, who lack common sense and completely disregard Occam’s Razor, think that every mass shooting is a false flag. The only good thing about the tin foil hat crowd is when they make their outlandish claims public, sane people can completely disregard anything else that comes out of their mouths.

For example, take Scott Baio. Yes, that Scott Baio. Chachi himself. This mental midget retweeted a conspiracy theorist’s photo claiming that the mother of Vickie Soto and the mother of Heather Heyer were the same person. For those of you who may not know, Vickie Soto was a teacher who was killed during the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, while Heather Heyer was the woman was struck by a car and killed by a neo-nazi at the recent protest in Charlottesville.

After a well-deserved social media backlash Baio deleted the tweet, then half-heartedly apologized for the tweet saying he retweeted it but didn’t post it, which is somehow better according to him.

To make matters worse, a mother of child who died at Sandy Hook tweeted at Baio’s wife Renee about the matter. Renee Baio responded to Nelba Márquez-Greene with the following…

This is what this insane harpy told a woman who lost her 6-year-old daughter, Ana Márquez-Greene, at Sandy Hook. All because the Baios are stupid enough to believe whatever bullshit some random troglodyte on Twitter happens to post.

If you believe things like 9/11 was an inside job or Sandy Hook didn’t really happen, seek psychiatric help before you have to be forcefully committed. Then again, you probably think any kind of mental healthcare is part of a conspiracy between big pharma and Obamacare to steal your thoughts. Trust me, no one wants them.

Sandy Hook truther sentenced for threatening victim’s family

Sandy Hook truther sentenced for threatening victim's family

Lucy Richards

(Story broke 6/7/2017)

57-year-old Lucy Richards of Tampa, Florida, was expected to enter into a plea deal with prosecutors for threatening a man by the name of Lenny Pozner. If that name sounds familiar to you, it’s because Mr. Pozner lost his son Noah at the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting at the hands of Adam Lanza. He’s also taken up the unenviable task of taking on Sandy Hook truthers, or people who believe Sandy Hook was a hoax perpetrated by the government in order to erode the 2nd Amendment. Because of that, he’s been the target of many attacks by the tin foil hat wearing crowd. Richards was one of those loons who had made threats against Mr. Pozner saying…

…“you gonna die, death is coming to you real soon,” according to federal court documents. The statements were made in January. She also wrote, “Look behind you it’s death,” according to the documents.

That is actually one of the more mild threats that Mr. Pozner has received.

As I was saying, Richards was expected to enter into a plea deal, but the presiding judge threw out the plea agreement and sentenced Richards to 5 months in prison, 5 months under house arrest and three years on probation.

Upon her sentencing, Mr. Pozner said it best…

People like Lucy Richards, who torment victims of violent crime by denying and mocking their pain are a sad reality. Her sadism is evident in her statements and the twisted joy she gets in pouring salt in our wounds and adding to our pain.

“Whatever demons drove her to threaten me, she needs to be held accountable for her crime.”

It will be interesting to see if she continues to cling to her conspiracy laden lunacy once her sentenced is completed.

Sandy Hook truther no-shows court date for death threats

Sandy Hook truther no-shows court date for death threats

Lucy Richards

57-year-old Lucy Richards was expected to appear in court today, in order to enter into a plea agreement that would spare her jail time. Richards was accused of harassing Lenny Pozner whose son Noah was killed at Sandy Hook. She is a conspiracy theorist who is said to believe that Sandy Hook never happened and was made up by the government in order to take the guns of citizens. Please allow me to refresh your memory as to what Richards is accused of saying to Mr. Pozner.

Richards is accused of telling the parent “you gonna die, death is coming to you real soon,” according to federal court documents. The statements were made in January. She also wrote, “Look behind you it’s death,” according to the documents.

The last we had heard from Richards, she was expected to enter into a plea agreement that would see her plead guilty and would only receive house arrest as a sentence. Instead she decided to just not show up to her court date. She allegedly told the Federal Court in Palm Beach County, Florida that she would not be attending today’s hearing with no reason being given.

“Miss Richards called my investigator and said she’s not coming,” Assistant Federal Public Defender Robert Berube told the judge. “That’s all I have.”

“Did she give a reason?” the judge asked.

“No,” said Berube. He told the judge his office gave Richards a written and verbal notice of the court hearing.

Now she has a warrant out for her arrest and prosecutors could possibly back out of the deal. If she is found guilty, she could be sentenced to 20 years in prison.

If you were to ask me why I thought she no-showed her court appearance, I would say that she is going to mount some conspiracy theory-laden defense that will try to draw attention to her supposition that Sandy Hook never happened. If I had to hazard a guess, she is going to try to force the federal government to prove that Sandy Hook happened, because why should she enter into a guilty plea when the instigating incident ‘never occurred’? To be honest, I hope she does try this defense as it usually never works out well in court for these conspiracy theorists. If that happens, I really hope the judge throws the book at her and makes an example out of her. These nutjobs need to be shown that there are repercussions for absurd actions.

UPDATE 4/3/2017: Richards was arrested again over the weekend. She offered no explanation for the no-show other than she doesn’t want her fate to be in the hands of a judge, indicating that she now wants to go to trial. She is now in the custody of the FBI and will appear in Federal Court within the next few days.

My mind is running wild at the possibilities of shenanigans that could happen during trial.

Sandy Hook truther charged with making death threats against victim’s family

Sandy Hook truther charged with making death threats

Lucy Richards

57-year-old Lucy Richards of Tampa, Florida, has been arrested for allegedly sending death threats to a Sandy Hook victim’s family. If you’re not familiar with the Sandy Hook truthers, they’re a bunch of conspiracy theorists who believe that the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School never took place and was a hoax perpetrated by the government designed to confiscate guns from gun owners. In the past I’ve posted about one such individual who confronted Vickie Soto’s sister and told her that she never existed.

Richards is accused of telling the parent “you gonna die, death is coming to you real soon,” according to federal court documents. The statements were made in January. She also wrote, “Look behind you it’s death,” according to the documents.

The parent that she was allegedly threatening was Lenny Pozner whose young son Noah was killed at Sandy Hook. Pozner has become the target of the tin foil hat wearing nutjobs because he took on the unenviable task of engaging these morons in discussing the reality of Sandy Hook.

Mr. Pozner has previously said the following about the Sandy Hook truthers

“Conspiracy theorists erase the human aspect of history,” Pozner told the magazine.

“My child — who lived, who was a real person — is basically going to be erased.”

If convicted, Richards is looking at 20 years behind bars.

With the fourth anniversary of the tragedy approaching in the next couple of days I’d imagine that a number of these cretins will start emerging from the fetid swamps of their unreasonable imaginations.

UPDATE 12/16/2016: Richards has pleaded not guilty to making death threats against Mr. Pozner.

UPDATE 3/7/2017: Richards is now expected to plead guilty in a change of plea hearing scheduled for March 29th.

Sandy Hook documents to remain secret

sandyhook

A Connecticut judge has ruled that documents seized in the Sandy Hook investigation that belonged to Adam Lanza will remain secret. The judge cited that if Lanza had survived and was tried for his crimes, the court would have ordered the private property returned to its rightful owner.

While it wasn’t mentioned in any article I saw, it could be safe to assume that another reason the documents were ordered to remain private were to prevent copycat shootings. Personally, I’m of the opinion that releasing these documents won’t cause copycats to increase. Conversely, with the release of such documents I believe it can go a long way in helping to identify future threats.

This recent ruling reminds me too much of the Columbine depositions that were ordered sealed for 20 years, along with the infamous Basement Tapes that were destroyed without any public notice.

Knowledge is power and the more knowledge we have into understanding the warped minds of these mass murderers the better chance we would have of preventing future tragedies like these.

Father of victim deals with Sandy Hook truthers

newworldorder

The following link is a great story from The Trace about Lenny Pozner entitled “What Kind of Person Calls a Mass Shooting a Hoax?” Mr. Pozner is the father of Noah Pozner who was tragically killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Mr. Pozner also decided to take it upon himself to engage the people, and I use that term loosely, who believe the conspiracy theory that Sandy Hook didn’t happen.

This is just a sampling of how the ‘truthers’ reacted to him…

Pozner looked to engage in some sort of dialogue with the people who, around this time, made him their chief target. (One video montage that started making the rounds showed images of Noah set to a soundtrack of pornographic sounds.) In June 2014, Pozner accepted an invitation to join a private Facebook group called Sandy Hook Hoax. He told its members that he was willing to answer their questions. “I think I lasted all of eight minutes,” he recalls. One participant said, “Man, I’m gonna have to coach you up if you wanna go on TV and make money Lenny.” Another typical attacker proclaimed, “Fuck your fake family, you piece of shit.”

This is not unlike the jackass that approached Vickie Soto’s family in public to tell them that she never existed.

I urge you to read the entire article to see what these dregs who refuse to believe in reality do to further their preposterous conspiracy fantasies.

I really would love to know what’s broken in the brains of conspiracy theorists that make them believe the garbage they spew.

UPDATE 12/21/2015: One of Mr. Pozner’s detractors, James Tracy, a professor at Florida Atlantic University, has been fired by the school for allegedly harassing Mr. Pozner.

In case you’re wondering the level of Tracy’s harassment…

‘Tracy even sent us a certified letter demanding proof that Noah once lived, that we were his parents, and that we were the rightful owner of his photographic image.’

Firing isn’t enough karma for this assclown. If I were the Pozner’s I would be suing him for every last piece of tin foil.

UPDATE 1/14/2016: In the wake of Tracy’s firing the Washington Post is reporting that the threats against Lenny Pozner have only increased.

A few days after Tracy’s firing was announced, Pozner got several death threats. A woman (judging by the voice) left messages on his phone that sounded like, “You’re gonna die you [expletives and slurs deleted] …And what are you going to do about it? You can do absolutely nothing. … this is coming to you real soon [expletive deleted]. You going to die,” and “You [expletive deleted] look behind you, justice is coming to you real soon.”

I’m actually dumbfounded for once because there’s nothing new that I can say about these crackpots that I haven’t said already. It’s just so pathetic that they’ve taken to harassing a man who lost such a young child in one of the worst crimes in recent history.

UPDATE 4/26/2016: James Tracy is now suing Florida Atlantic University claiming that his termination violated his First Amendment rights. On the one hand FAU is a state-run university so it could be argued that the government curtailed his speech. On the more realistic hand harassment is not a form of protected speech. Also I have to add that I love how these conspiracy nuts will use the courts for their own gain but if they were the one being brought before a judge wouldn’t recognize the authority of the court.

Sandy Hook truther assails victim’s family

newworldorder

I actually have somewhat of a fascination of conspiracy theories. I think they can be fun little works of fiction. What I can’t stand are the conspiracy theorists themselves who ignore all basic tenets of logic and science just to put forth whatever the latest tripe is that Alex Jones is pushing. It pisses me off even more when these dim-witted troglodytes feel the need to interject themselves in places they’re not welcome with their outrageous accusations.

Recently in Stratford, Connecticut, the Vickie Soto 5K race was being held with the purpose of raising money for educational scholarships in her name. For those of you who may not remember, Vickie Soto was the teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School who selflessly put herself between gunman Adam Lanza and her students. She died protecting little lives.

So leave it to some false flag believing asshat to ruin this event. 32-year-old Matthew Mills of Brooklyn and went to the event allegedly with the sole purpose of approaching Vickie Soto’s family

Police said Mills approached Vicki’s Soto’s younger sister, Jillian. They said Mills shoved a photograph in the younger Soto’s face and began angrily charging that not only did the Sandy Hook tragedy not take place, but that Vicki Soto never existed.

Can you imagine walking up to a family at a memorial for their love one who died a tragically violent death to tell them that their daughter/sister didn’t even exist? I’m almost positive that the belief in conspiracy theories is an indication of sever mental illness. The kind that gets you a padded cell with daily electroshock treatments and possibly a frontal lobotomy.

If I were in charge I would round up all the conspiracy theorists and place them in secret FEMA prison camps. That way they’d be separated from the rest of society and they’d probably finally be happy since they told us all along.

UPDATE 12/21/2015: Mills’ lawyer is claiming ‘free speech’ as his client’s defense. Last time I checked, harassment is not a protected form of speech.

As much as patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel so is claiming free speech in order to violate the rights of others.

UPDATE 3/19/2016: Mills no-showed a court hearing last week. The judge has offered the ultimatum to Mills that he accept a plea deal from the state or go to trial. Knowing these conspiracy nuts I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t recognize the judge’s authority.

UPDATE 4/18/2016: Mills entered into an Alford plea and was sentenced to a one year suspended sentence and will have no further contact with Victoria Soto’s family.

In true truther douchebag fashion Mills told a reporter that “I think that the Sandy Hook family members need better acting lessons.”

It’s a damn shame that this assclown didn’t spend any lengthy amount of time in a cell.

Aspereger’s did not cause Newtown

Don’t Blame Adam Lanza’s Violence on Asperger’s:

Adam Lanza

Adam Lanza

I can’t believe we keep having to go over this. Then again it’s hard to wage a war on ignorance when the ignorant want to stay that way.

For those of you who may not know Asperger’s Syndrome is a form of Autism where the sufferer has trouble with social situations and has trouble discerning different types of speech like sarcasm. That’s just a very basic explanation of it. What Asperger’s doesn’t do is turn someone into a homicidal maniac.

Yes there have been violent killers who have suffered from Asperger’s. The one’s that come to mind for me are William Freund, John Odgren, and of course Adam Lanza.

Another thing that Asperger’s doesn’t do is that it doesn’t diminish your ability to tell right from wrong. While Asperger’s may be seen as a mental disease Lanza and the others knew full well what they were doing and what they were doing was wrong. Newtown was not just some outburst. Lanza had planned it for months as did Freund and Odgren. The only drawback in these cases with Asperger’s, if you can call it a drawback, is that Apserger’s patients tend to be highly intelligent and organized hence the ‘success’ of these attacks. However these attacks are the exception and not the rule.

The problem is that too many people in our society believe correlation is causation. They believe that since these killers had Asperger’s that everyone that has Asperger’s is a potential mass murderer. It also doesn’t help that too many criminal defense lawyers are using Asperger’s as a defense in murder trials, as shown with that of John Odgren. Then lastly there’s the people who have self-diagnosed themselves as having Asperger’s. Asperger’s cannot just be diagnosed by going to WebMD. It has to be diagnosed by a medical professional. If you tell people you have Asperger’s and you’ve never seen a doctor about it chances are you’re just an anti-social jerk.

Stop living in fear of everything. Knowledge is power and the more knowledge you have the better off we’ll all be.

Of chimps and Autism: A lesson in journalism on Sandy Hook

Adam Lanza

Adam Lanza

Two stories came out this past week about the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. One the media took and ran with while the other has received little to no attention. As usual it’s my opinion that the media picked the wrong one.

The story that has been all over the news is that gunman Adam Lanza may called into an anarchist radio show in Oregon to talk about Travis the Chimp. Travis was that chimp in Connecticut that went um…apeshit….and mauled that woman’s face off. So what? He called an off beat radio show to speak about an off beat topic. Even though Lanza said this about the incident

“His attack can be seen entirely parallel to the attacks and random acts of violence that you bring up on your show every week, committed by humans, which the mainstream also has no explanation,” Lanza says of Travis at one point.

“I just … don’t think it would be such a stretch to say that he very well could have been a teenage mall shooter or something like that.”

I don’t see how this is relevant to explaining the motive behind the shooting itself. This is National Enquirer stuff which doesn’t surprise me since the first national news outlet to break the story was the New York Daily News.

Now the story that got no attention whatsoever was this story where Matthew Lerner, a psychology professor at Stony Brook University, told the commission investigating Sandy Hook that there is no link between Autism and violence.

This is the story that should have gotten the press that the chimp story did. Asperger’s has become the 2nd de facto excuse for school violence after bullying. It’s yet to be used as a successful defense. Yet there are people who will think that because of people like Lanza that all Asperger’s patients or Autistics are all potential mass murderers.

We have too much ignorance in this country as it is and it’s partly because the media is more concerned about ratings and page views than educating the populace or reporting the truth.

Misdirection by the media on the Sandy Hook report

Recently the state of Connecticut made public all its files on the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Meanwhile the national media has transfixed on two things that have nothing to do with the actual shooting in my opinion.

The first is this picture of a young Adam Lanza…

younglanza

That’s a young Adam Lanza dressed in camos, teething on what appears to be a gun in front of a gun rack. First off the gun he’s holding is probably a toy and this picture could be of any number of kids who were and are raised in rural America. That doesn’t make them potential mass killers. As a matter of fact, kids who are raised around guns are usually less likely to become killers since they’re taught to respect firearms and are well-educated on the damage they can do. I’m not here to argue the merits or drawbacks of the 2nd Amendment but guns did not make Adam Lanza a mass murderer.

Another thing the media is making a big deal about is the fact that a psychiatrist who once treated Lanza voluntarily gave up his license because he allegedly had a sexual relationship with one of his patients. He briefly treated Lanza and barely remembered him. The doctor surrendered his license in 2012. This didn’t cause Lanza to become a mass murderer either.

Again Lanza became a mass murderer because he was allowed to have an unhealthy obsession about previous school shootings and was allowed easy access to weapons by his mother. People with Asperger’s can tend to have obsessions over one particular subject, Adam Lanza’s were mass killings and no one discouraged him from it. Another case of Not My Kid Syndrome.
