    The perpetrator of the heinous crime that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary on December 14, 2012, called an Oregon radio show on December 11, 2011 and talked about about mass murder. The show was Anarchy Radio, and Lanza called it using the pseudonym "Greg." In audio provided by the NY Daily News, Lanza can be heard talking about Travis, the chimpanzee who attacked and ripped Charla Nash's face off in 2009.

    The photograph below, likely taken in mid-December, shows the remains of the Sandy Hook Elementary School crime scene, where all evidence has now been destroyed. The demolition of the 57 year old structure commenced in October, shortly after a $50 million appropriation made by Connecticut Governor Dannell Malloy to rebuild the school and a $2.5 million payout by President Obama’s Department of Justice to local and regional law enforcement agencies participating in the December 14, 2012 event. http://i0.wp.com/vigilantcitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/BN-AJ905_nyhook_G_20131113171915.jpgFor additional information and research please consult the Sandy Hook School Massacre Timeline and the Sandy Hook Massacre Compendium of Research and Analysis.

    Evidence points to a December raid of the Riverview Gun Shop in East Windsor, Conn., where Sandy Hook Elementary School murderer Adam Lanza’s mother reportedly purchased the Bushmaster rifle used in the massacre, as being an event staged more for media fanfare than for public safety, legal documents issued to authorize the raid indicate. Gun Rights Examiner has been sitting on much of this information since since the evening of the raid, but has held onto it pending further corroboration of certain information. With the publication in this column on August 29 of such information, further details can now be...

Standing on the White House lawn, along with the same sad, bedraggled group of people Obama has been dragging around for weeks as he made his emotional argument against guns, Obama hurled insults in every direction. Ignoring the fact that the gun control bill contained cute little provisions, such as the one giving liberal physicians the right to report for a national...

Quickly, though, I want to show you an example of an MSM outlet's (CNN) utter failure to do its job on Sandy Hook/Newtown. A Sandy Hook timeline at CNN contains the following claims: 1.

    When President Obama used Air Force One to ferry around parents of children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary, he understood the politics of emotion. Democrat operatives understood, when they arranged for the parents to lobby 25 senators for a new assault weapons ban. A guy recently called my show, irate that anybody would describe the Sandy Hook parents as lobbyists. Even though they were lobbying. His objective was to silence criticism. That’s exactly what Obama and Democrats want: a one-sided debate, with the opposition too afraid to speak up, for fear of appearing insensitive to grieving parents. But there are...

And how many of those deaths could have been prevented if the victim had been able to carry a gun? We don’t know because Biden isn’t interested in actual facts, he’s trying to wow the crowd with a big number in order...

He was referring to the 26 children and teachers killed in the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Monday´s breaking news about a fatal shooting at a courthouse in Wilmington in Biden´s home state of Delaware only underscored "the urgency" of the need for "common sense" restrictions on gun sales, he said.

While some used the platform to promote stricter firearms legislation, at least one parent became passionate, claiming that there are more than enough laws on the books, that current regulations simply need to be enforced and that the nation needs to embrace personal responsibility. Mark Mattioli, whose six-year-old son James perished inside of the school, testified that a plethora of new gun laws isn’t the answer and that, instead, personal responsibility, accountability and civility are the...

Last year, responding to an activist lawsuit, a federal judge ordered a 31 percent cut in water pumped from the San Joaquin-Sacramento Delta – a water supply for 25 million residents. The judge acted in an effort to end the decline of the three-inch-long Delta smelt. Last year, responding to activists, a judge demanded that the Department of Water Resources, which runs the State Water Project in the Delta, get a permit to “take” Delta smelt.

    During a class discussion on adolescence, a high school teacher recently asked her students whether they go on dates. We don't "date," the 12th graders reported. We "hook up." If you're in your 40s, "hooking up" might mean catching a friend downtown for lunch. But to people in their teens or 20s, the phrase often means a casual sexual encounter _ anything from kissing onwards _ with no strings attached. Now a new book on this not-so-new subject is drawing fire in some quarters for its conclusion: That hookups can be damaging to young women, denying their emotional needs, putting...

In Lebanon and throughout the wider Arab and Muslim world, however, the village's name has for the last decade been synonymous with something else: the killing in April 1996 of more than 100 men, women and children who had taken refuge in a U.N. compound, hiding from Israeli shelling directed at Hezbollah.
