And it is the same Newtown where the little ones were gunned down.

Does it matter that THE NATIONAL SHOOTING SPORTS FOUNDATION is headquartered in NEWTOWN, Connecticut? If it doesn't (have you heard anyone mention this?), then it should!

Gun sales were so high at the group's recent giant gun "fair" in Las Vegas, that people were paying for guns that are on backorder. So the gun sales guys made profits, despite (or because of?) the Newtown deaths-by-gun. And, since the state of Connecticut is a premiere gun manufacturing state in the USA, these manufacturers are making profits over their expectations despite (or is it because of?) the murders of the little children of Connecticut.

It would be interesting to see just who has profitted most in the aftermath of the shooting of schoolchildren. Is there a pattern that has developed? Do profits for gun makers and sellers usually soar after these murderous events? Is it a Disaster Capitalism pattern, not only a murderous disaster taken advantage but possibly a -- no, maybe one shouldn't say the unspeakable....

Here is an article by Justin Berton in The San Francisco Chronicle that reports the fact that the world's largest gun show is operated out of NEWTOWN, Connecticut--


LAS VEGAS -- One month and one day after the elementary-school massacre that threatens to change the American gun industry, a group based where that atrocity took place mixed defiance with discretion Tuesday in opening the doors to the world's largest gun show.

More than 60,000 gun dealers, retailers and apparel makers are in Las Vegas this week for the annual Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade convention, hosted by the National Shooting Sports Foundation of Newtown.

I didn't know it, and I think it matters a lot. Too bad what happens in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas.'s picture 6 years 24 weeks ago

Thinking people know Sandy Hook didn't happen.

What I sense is that those in charge are manipulating us, and it isn't just about their usual use of events (like the Gulf of Tonkin scam which was VERY useful for war profiteering and illicit drug trafficking), but that a new level of manipulation beyond their Manipulation As Usual.

This new type of manipulation comes out of this new era of Disaster Capitalism.


So, my questioning the Sandyhook School massacre isn't saying no one was hurt, just as challenging the official story of 9/11 doesn't mean that The Twin Towers destruction was hypnotism!

Questioning the official story means trying to find out what really happened, where the gaps are in the official scenario (usually born whole within moments of the occurrence), and WHY someone would want to create such gaps in their official story.

Our culture values money and money-power as the highest form of success. Therefore, I look to the avenues of profiteering as the pathways those in control may be travelling when they create their BORN WHOLE HOKUM and call it the "official results" of their "official investigations".

What Do Democrats Really Want?

Thom plus logo Thomas Friedman, the confused billionaire, told us decades ago that "free trade" is what made the Lexus a successful product when, in fact, it was decades of Japanese government subsidies and explicit tariffs that did so.
