Quote:Former classmate reveals school gunman had ‘online devil worshiping page’
The Sandy Hook gunman worshiped the devil and had an online page dedicated to Satan, a former classmate revealed, as his childhood barber recalls Adam Lanza never spoke and would stare at the floor every time he had his hair cut.
Lanza’s worshiping page had the word ‘Devil’ written in red, Gothic-style letters against a black background, Trevor L. Todd told The National Enquirer, something which he said was ‘weird’ and ‘gave him the chills’.
The FBI are trying to piece together his smashed up hard drive to see if his online footprint will reveal any motive for the killing, but they strongly believe he made use of devil-worshiping and suicide sites and boasted of his murder plans on message forums.
Adam Lanza’s childhood barber Bob Skuba revealed today that Nancy Lanza stopped bringing her son in for haircuts a few years ago so he thought he had moved away from the area. He told CNN that Adam would never speak or even look at him any time he came in for a cut, which was every six weeks for years.
‘It’s just weird that I actually touched him. I’d tried to joke with him,’ Skuba said. ‘He wouldn’t even look at me. He would just be looking down at the tiles the whole time.
‘I wish I would have killed him then. Or he should have killed himself a long time ago. He would have saved us all the trouble. ‘I should have slit and stabbed him by accident. It would have been a lot better for those people.’
Cutting Adam Lanza’s hair ‘was a very long half an hour. It was a very uncomfortable situation’, stylist Diane Harty said. She said that she never heard his voice even once and that Nancy, a divorcee, also hardly spoke – only to tell Adam what to do as he would not listen to anyone else.
It also emerged today that the chief medical examiner in the massacre is enlisting the help of a geneticist to see if they can find a biological motive behind why the ‘troubled genius’ shot dead 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday.
Dr H. Wayne Carver says he wants to know if there is any identifiable disease associated with the behavior of the shooter, especially as Asperger’s syndrome – which Adam is thought to have suffered from – is not associated with violent behavior.
‘I’m exploring with the department of genetics what might be possible, if anything is possible,’ Dr Carver said. ‘Is there any identifiable disease associated with this behavior?’
He is also awaiting toxicology results.
What is the Church of Satan and How Do I Get Involved?
The Church of Satan was founded by Dr. Anton Szandor LaVey, April 30th
1966 c.e. It was the first church based on the celebration of carnal
indulgences and pursuit of material happiness and success. (In
contrast to "spiritual enlightenment" and union with "God"). It was
literally meant as an eye-opener for those who would choose to cast
out false morality and blind faith, so to see with their own eyes and
think with their own minds, so that the human race could grow more
aware of itself rather than being clouded in self-righteous,
Satanists are driven to be leaders; they are strong and ambitious
individuals who are masters of the world and of themselves. Our
movement will enlighten those who act as predators, seeking material
rewards and victories as their needs meet. Likewise, it will leave
passive, non-thinkers to be enslaved in an increasingly demanding
world that they would naturally have to face regardlessly.
We do not favor trends or popular fanaticism because we can observe
for ourselves how those who partake in such behaviors are constantly
proven to fall into a mediocre category; always needing to be given
detailed instructions on how they should conduct themselves and how to
think. Television is their God. Satanists are above that. We
represent the minority of free-thinkers and innovators who constantly
pop-up in history as leaders, inventors, and "wise-men" of their time.
Obviously there are many calling themselves Satanists these days who
cannot and will not ever meet this standard. Satanism is a religion
enshrouded in mystery, and the arcane aspects of it are indeed to our
advantage. However, this sparks a temptation many times in the worst
candidates for our elitist movement, a temptation to try joining our
ranks and then consequently suffering their own folly while thinking
that they are receiving worthwhile attention. One of the most
unmistakable ways to recognize a pseudo-Satanist is that they commonly
make a self-initiated claim to the position of "Priest", "Magister" or
"Magus" long before the subject is suited or capable of handling such
a role. These labels represent a high-rank within our meritocracy,
and they cannot be misused. The pseudo-Satanist will aspire to this
position usually without any experience, credentials, reputation or
talent. A real Satanist doesn't concern himself with becoming a
Priest. A real Satanist pursues happiness and success, and if they
are fortunate enough to be ordained by the Church of Satan, then so be
it. Other wise, there are many other achievements to aspire to in
life and Satanists in various occupations are just as respected for
their own victories.
The Church of Satan was, is, and will always be the first above-ground
organization ever established in the name of a religion called
Satanism. It is advisable to check with any resources or persons what
their feelings are for the Church of Satan and the work of Anton LaVey
before accepting their authority. There is more inaccurate
information on the internet, and in other resources, about Satanism
than there is accurate information, and that is probably going to
remain a reality for a while, until real Satanists have achieved
enough momentum to overpower the reign of falsities, as we most
certainly will. Since we let everyone stand or fall on their own
merit, we don't get directly in their way. However, we do not tolerate
unqualified, self-ordained spokespersons and never will, so this
information is an important way of filtering them out. Real Satanists
will never become the majority. This is not a world with many leaders
and only a couple of followers. Nature's ineffable logic has never
made it that way for quite valid reasons.
The principles of the Satanic Bible, and the Satanic movement of the
Church of Satan DO NOT condone: neo-nazism, racism, child sacrifice,
animal sacrifice, child molestation, mandatory sex orgies, kidnapping,
or illegal drugs. All of these things either consist of or are in
themselves exemplatory of compulsive, irrational behavior which is not
desirable for the healthy lifestyle of Satanism. Let Christians who
don't know what to do with themselves out of abnormal self-denial and
neurosis abuse their altar boys - we don't need them anymore!

Quote:Scott Getzinger (1965–2012)
Quote:Batman Prop Master Died In Newtown, Connecticut 8 Months Prior To School Massacre Under Mysterious Conditions
According to Master Propsman’s Scott Gettzinger’s IMDB page, his date of birth was December 30th, 1965. He was born in Branford, Connecticut. He died on April 7th, 2012. He lived, and died, in Newtown, Connecticut after a car accident. State police initially classified his injuries as non-life-threatening.
Scott’s nickname was Goober. Scott was the Property Master on many movies, coincidentally, he was also the Property Master for The Dark Knight Rises. What is the Property Master responsible for? From Wikipedia:
The property master is an artistic and organizational employee in a film, television or theatrical production who is responsible for purchasing, acquiring and/or manufacturing any props needed for a production. The property master also works with other members of the production managing the physical appearance of the stage or set, for example they might work with the script supervisorto maintain set continuity. The property master is on staff during preproduction, develops the stylistic concept of the physical production, then continues on as a member of the physical shooting/production crew.
His biography in 2012/2013 alone was stunning:
Blood Ties (property master) (post-production)
2013 Masters of Sex (TV movie) (property master) (post-production)
2012 The Dark Knight Rises (property master: New York)
2012 Men in Black 3 (property master: New York)
One bloggers theory on the entire Sandy Hook school shootings goes something like this: “They essentially hijacked a town and flooded it with actors! There are multiple levels at work here… On one level they will create a new headline for the noose… GUN CONTROL…. On the other hand… The dark energies FEED off your FALSE PRAYERS! If children did die and people did pray then those prayers help to heal all. But if there were no actual murders… ALL THAT ENERGY IS FED TO THEM!!!”
Was it really all a ‘big production’? If so, is that why they killed off the prop master, after it had been all planned out, props acquired? Scott Getzinger worked as the prop master for The Dark Knight Rises. He lived and died in Newtown, Connecticut. Coincidence?

"Trained Players and Actors Making It Real. Helping schools and first responders create realistic drills, full-scale exercises, high-fidelity simulations, and interactive 3D films. A new group of actors is now available nationwide for active shooter drills and mall shooting full-scale exercises, announced Visionbox, Denver's leading professional actors studio. Visionbox Crisis Actors are trained in criminal and victim behavior, and bring intense realism to simulated mass casualty incidents in public places. The actors’ stage acting experience, ranging from Shakespeare to contemporary American theater, enables them to "stay in character" throughout an exercise, and improvise scenes of extreme stress while strictly following official exercise scenarios. The actors regularly rehearse scenarios involving the Incident Command System and crisis communications, and appear in interactive training films produced in both 2D and stereoscopic 3D. Producers Jennifer McCray Rincon and John Simmons formed the group to demonstrate emerging security technologies, help first responders visualize life-saving procedures, and assist trainers in delivering superior hands-on crisis response training. For example, with a large shopping center, the producers review all security camera views and design dramatic scenes specifically for existing camera angles, robotic camera sweeps, and manually-controlled camera moves. The actors can play the part of the shooters, mall employees, shoppers in the mall, shoppers who continue to arrive at the mall, media reporters and others rushing to the mall, and persons in motor vehicles around the mall. Visionbox Crisis Actors can also play the role of citizens calling 911 or mall management, or posting comments on social media websites. We are outraged by Florida Atlantic University Professor James Tracy's deliberate promotion of rumor and innuendo to link Crisis Actors to the Sandy Hook shootings of December 14, 2012. We do not engage our actors in any real-world crisis events, and none of our performances may be presented at any time as a real-world event. James Tracy's so-called research is copied almost verbatim from a tightly-connected group of hate blogs and YouTube channels that use only one another as sources. From the thousands of comments of these sites' devoted followers, one thing is clear. They are nothing but thrill-seekers using any pretext to vent their irrational hate against the Sandy Hook community and a nation of mourners."

Twenty-Five Ways To Suppress Truth: The Rules of Disinformation
Includes The 8 Traits of A Disinformationalist
by H. Michael Sweeney
5. Sidetrack opponents with name calling and ridicule. This is also known as the primary 'attack the messenger' ploy, though other methods qualify as variants of that approach. Associate opponents with unpopular titles such as 'kooks', 'right-wing', 'liberal', 'left-wing', 'terrorists', 'conspiracy buffs', 'radicals', 'militia', 'racists', 'religious fanatics', 'sexual deviates', and so forth. This makes others shrink from support out of fear of gaining the same label, and you avoid dealing with issues.
6. Hit and Run. In any public forum, make a brief attack of your opponent or the opponent position and then scamper off before an answer can be fielded, or simply ignore any answer. This works extremely well in Internet and letters-to-the-editor environments where a steady stream of new identities can be called upon without having to explain criticism, reasoning -- simply make an accusation or other attack, never discussing issues, and never answering any subsequent response, for that would dignify the opponent's viewpoint.
9. Play Dumb. No matter what evidence or logical argument is offered, avoid discussing issues except with denials they have any credibility, make any sense, provide any proof, contain or make a point, have logic, or support a conclusion. Mix well for maximum effect.
17. Change the subject. Usually in connection with one of the other ploys listed here, find a way to side-track the discussion with abrasive or controversial comments in hopes of turning attention to a new, more manageable topic. This works especially well with companions who can 'argue' with you over the new topic and polarize the discussion arena in order to avoid discussing more key issues.
18. Emotionalize, Antagonize, and Goad Opponents. If you can't do anything else, chide and taunt your opponents and draw them into emotional responses which will tend to make them look foolish and overly motivated, and generally render their material somewhat less coherent. Not only will you avoid discussing the issues in the first instance, but even if their emotional response addresses the issue, you can further avoid the issues by then focusing on how 'sensitive they are to criticism.'

“After years of secretly monitoring the public, we were astounded so many people would willingly publicize where they live, their religious and political views, an alphabetized list of all their friends, personal emails addresses, phone numbers, hundreds of photos of themselves, and even status updates about what they were doing moment to moment.

Noah Shachtman at Danger Room finds a 2006 report written for U.S. Special Operations Command that suggests ways the military should deal with the blogosphere. One suggestion is for the military to hire bloggers to “pass the U.S. message“: Information strategists can consider clandestinely recruiting or hiring prominent bloggers or other persons of prominence…to pass the U.S. message. … On the other hand, such operations can have a blowback effect, as witnessed by the public reaction following revelations that the U.S. military had paid journalists to publish stories in the Iraqi press under their own names. People do not like to be deceived, and the price of being exposed is lost credibility and trust. An alternative strategy is to “make” a blog and blogger. The process of boosting the blog to a position of influence could take some time, however, and depending on the person running the blog, may impose a significant educational burden, in terms of cultural and linguistic training before the blog could be put online to any useful effect. Still, there are people in the military today who like to blog.

In its strategic context, mindwar must reach out to friends, enemies and neutrals alike across the globe. through the media possessed by the United States which have the capabilities to reach virtually all people on the face of the Earth. These media are, of course, the electronic media—television and radio.

"Information strategists can consider clandestinely recruiting or hiring prominent bloggers or other persons of prominence… to pass the U.S. message. In this way, the U.S. can overleap the entrenched inequalities and make use of preexisting intellectual and social capital. Sometimes numbers can be effective; hiring a block of bloggers to verbally attack a specific person or promote a specific message may be worth considering. Hacking the site and subtly changing the messages and data—merely a few words or phrases—may be sufficient to begin destroying the blogger’s credibility with the audience."

Boston Mayor: Vice President Biden “Guaranteed” Gun Control Reform BEFORE Sandy Hook Shooting
A leading gun control advocate who co-chairs a national committee with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says that the Vice President, Joe Biden, personally promised him that Obama will pass sweeping firearms reforms by the end of the month.
Boston Mayor, Thomas M. Menino, co-chair of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns organisation, told reporters at the City Hall that Biden had “guaranteed” him that far reaching gun control measures would be quickly implemented in 2013.
“He said, ‘Tommy, I guarantee you, we’ll get it done by the end of January,’” Menino said, adding that Biden had telephoned him several times to discuss gun control over the past two months.
“They’re going to get it done.” Menino said, intimating that Biden had made promises to him before the latest school shooting had even occurred.
Menino has spent most of his time hospitalized since October with a range of ailments. It was this ongoing illness that seemingly prompted the calls from Biden.
The Mayors Against Illegal Guns organisation group has lobbied Obama to introduce broad gun reform measures since his election in 2008. The group, consisting of around 500 mayors nationwide, has called for further empowering the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to crack down on the proliferation of firearms.
Among their recommendations has been a call to allow ATF agents greater discretion to conduct criminal investigations and background checks at gun shows. “Criminal activity endemic to some gun shows goes unchecked” the group noted in a 2009 report.
“I understand the second amendment, the right to bear arms. But I don’t understand how young kids should be able to get guns,” Menino said.
The Mayor added that Obama now has “no excuse not to pass strong (gun reform) legislation,” given that he no longer has to worry about getting re-elected.
“It’s time to get this moving and moving quickly,” Menino said. “Let’s do it now.”
Earlier this week, an Obama administration official told The Huffington Post, that the president plans to quickly push for new gun control measures beginning this month:
The official, who spoke about legislative plans only on condition of anonymity, said that coming standoffs over deficit reduction are unlikely to drain momentum from other priorities. The White House plans to push forward quickly, not just on immigration reform but gun control laws as well.

Quote:Theater Troupe/Peer Education Project
The Theater Troupe/Peer Education Project (TTPEP) aims to prevent substance use and other unhealthy behaviors among school-aged youth through peer education. Participants, usually youth of middle school age, are presented with an interactive theatrical performance, followed by two workshops. The performance is conducted by a troupe of high school students who have been recruited and trained in the areas of theater, health, and peer education. The aim of the performance is to increase the audience members' knowledge of social norms; modify their attitudes, beliefs, and intentions about substance use; and provide them with peer refusal skills. The performance begins with a skit in which troupe members act out situations involving peer pressure, social acceptance, and substance use, as well as responses to these situations. Troupe members remain in character for a question-and-answer session with the audience to discuss their characters' histories and portrayals of the various situations in the skit. In the final component of the performance, the troupe members, now out of character, facilitate a peer discussion on the issues. At the end of the performance, audience members receive information about substances, including the prevalence of use by school-aged youth.
Within 1-2 weeks of the theatrical performance, a "reality" workshop is held, during which recovering young adults share their personal stories and answer questions from participants. One week after the reality workshop, a skill-building workshop is held to reinforce what participants learned through the performance and the first workshop. Participants also identify overt and covert pressures to use substances, learn about resistance skills through educational activities, and practice these skills through role-playing exercises.
Although TTPEP has been provided primarily to students in urban middle schools, it also has been provided at elementary and high schools and in residential centers, detention facilities, and other settings. In the study reviewed for this summary, the intervention was provided to 7th graders.

Stephen Barton had just graduated from Syracuse University, where he was selected to give the student commencement speech. Rodriguez-Torrent had just finished his next-to-last year at Yale University, where he will graduate in 2013 with combined bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
During a stop in Colorado, more than 2,000 miles into their trip, they decided to catch the opening day of the new Batman movie, “The Dark Knight Rises.” They bought tickets for the 12:05 a.m. show on Friday; Barton posted on Instagram a photo of his left hand – in a bicycling glove – holding the movie ticket.
Barton and Rodriguez-Torrent were in their seats near the middle of the Century 16 Theater in Aurora when a gunman opened fire. The shooter killed 12 and wounded 60 more. Barton was struck in the neck and chest with shotgun pellets; Rodriguez-Torrent wasn’t hit.
Stephen Barton underwent surgery early Friday morning to remove pellets from his neck and chest, said his brother, David Barton.
“He’s in high spirits,” said David Barton, 27, of New York City, who spoke to his brother by phone. “He’s feeling great, to use his words.”
David Barton said he and his brother didn’t talk about the chaotic scene inside the theater.
Stephen Barton was a triple major in international relations, economics and Russian language. His Twitter profile consists of a quotation from Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy.
He was also a Remembrance Scholar, an award that honors the SU students killed in the 1988 airline bombing above Scotland (PAN AM 103 BLOWN UP BY THE CIA ACCORDING TO PAN AM).
Barton planned to teach English in Russia this fall, said Francine D’Amico, an international relations professor at SU and Barton’s academic adviser.
Barton was never a serious cyclist, his brother said.
“This was kind of out of the blue where they had said this is something they wanted to do,” said David Barton. “It was a way to personally prove to themselves they can bike across the country and at the time see the country.
Barton had won a full scholarship to attend SU, and won numerous awards throughout his career, including a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship Grant for 2012-2013.
Barton also edited the newsletter of SU’s Advocacy Center, belonged to a peer education theater group, and helped plan the annual Take Back the Night rally against sexual violence, according to SU’s web site.
Quote:Earlier this year, Stephen Barton was shot 25 times in the face, neck, hand, chest, shoulder and forearm in the Century 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colo., during the midnight premiere of The Dark Knight Rises. This week, he will take his scars on the national stage.
Barton appears in a 30-second ad produced by Mayors Against Illegal Guns, an organization founded by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg that calls for stricter gun control laws. The ad airs this week in Washington, D.C., and Denver, including a primetime slot before the first presidential debate on Wednesday night, which will be held a few miles from Aurora. “We can’t think of a better time to talk about this,” Barton told The Daily Beast.
Holmes’s shotgun jammed and the gunshots stopped. Barton ran for the back left emergency exit and was quickly transported to the Medical Center of Aurora, where he and another person were the first victims of the attack to arrive at the emergency room. He was taken into surgery and woke up a few hours later.
“I remember the strongest feeling being joy that I had made it through the night,” he said.
Barton decided to defer his Fulbright teaching scholarship in Russia to work for Mayors "for" Illegal Guns (not Mayors AGAINST Illegal Guns).
In the ad, Barton sits in an empty movie theater as pictures of his massive scars flash across the screen. “This past summer in a movie theater in Colorado I was shot in the face and neck,” he says. “But I was lucky. In the next four years, 48,000 Americans won’t be so lucky because they’ll be murdered with guns in the next president’s term.” That figure, an average of the last five years of available data from the Centers for Disease Control, includes mass murders and gang violence, and excludes suicide.
