Top Ten Blog Posts Of 2012

Yes, once again it is that time of year to do what Americans love to do: create and read top ten (or whatever) lists! For Random Thoughts Of A Random Guy From A Random Place Up In The Sky, 2012 was an outstanding year in the number of readers over the year previous, and I would think, also with the quality of the blog posts I wrote. But, not only do I digress, I boast.

Here are the Top 10 blog posts of 2012 based on the number of reads per post and it is also my first full year of blogging. This list, of course, is not the same as a list of posts that I think were pretty damn fine (and didn't get too many readers), so I will include those afterward as "honorable mentions". Also note that not all of the Top 10 were written in 2012.

1. "The JFK Conspiracy: The Proof Is In The Warren Report"
This post was number one week after week for most of the first part of the year, having originally been published in November, 2011. It is also a favorite of mine, being a part of the narrative that is infrequently (if ever) brought up.

2. "The Beatles - 'John Is In Fact The Leader Of The Group'"
The surprise big hit of latter 2012, this post was part of a three part examination of John Lennon's songwriting within The Beatles. Part Three also appears on this list, but for whatever strange reasons, Part Two didn't come close in terms of readership.

3. "John Lennon - A Conspiracy Of Silence"
This post was the complete script for the documentary, which due to time constraints had to be under fifteen minutes.

4. "Attention Whores - What?"
This is the first of two blog posts which enjoyed a surge of readership within the last two months of the year. This one is especially curious as it had basically laid dormant for most of the year. Why? Who the holy internet knows. The presidential election, the news of another shooting? I dunno.

5. "Mitt Romney Eats Orphaned Children For Breakfast; Among Other Things"
Here is the second surging blog. This was actually one of my favorite satires written all year. Man, that was a bad and spendy election!

6."JFK Assassination - The Correct Conclusion Regarding William Greer"
There was a surprising amount of comments against the conclusions in this blog post. I was trying to refute the notion that JFK's driver killed him, but, the idea, after all these years, is pretty strong in some people.

7. "Obama: Extra-Judicial Mass Murderer"
Here is another post from late 2011 that still had staying power this past year. That heartens me a bit, as the case of the minor boy assassinated is finally making some inroads in the MSM.

8. "Walter Cronkite Was The Source Of The Core JFK Conspiracies"
This post was something I ran across simply by watching the first hour or so of CBS-TV's news coverage of the assassination on November 22nd, 1963. It was simply astounding!

9. "New York City Police Kill Gunman AND Wound 9 Bystanders"
Here was a true breaking news story post. It could have been much worse - "kill gunman and nine bystanders". A true WTF kinda moment.

10. "Part 3 - The Beatles - 'John Was In Fact The Leader Of The Group'"
Part three of this post squeaks in at number ten.

Author's Honorable Mentions

Here are some honorable mentions (well, three) that I was quite fond of but didn't get nearly enough reads to even appear on a top twenty list.

"Handcuffed Suspect In Back Of Police Car Shoots Self - AGAIN!?!"
Ah yes. This post was a fool me twice moment.

"Blacks SHOULD Be Outraged Over Trayvon Martin Killing"
This post was my favorite of the year and, yes, I'm still outraged about the whole thing.

"WAKE UP!!! Facebook Censorship !!!"
I didn't think that in 2012, something like this post explains, would cause me to lose access to good old Facebook for three days. But it did and I was. So, Happy New Year and New World Order!

Dead Sandy Hook Elementary School Principal Interviewed By Local Paper About Shooting

A most disturbing find.

In its first article about the shooting at Sandy Hook School on December 14th, 2012, the local paper, The Newtown Bee, included an interview with the school principal, Dawn Hochsprung. The problem is that Dawn Hochsprung was reported as shot to death during the attack! How was the newspaper able to interview someone who was supposed to be dead? The original article is here, and in case it gets scrubbed, it is reprinted below in full with the relevant passage in bold. (UPDATE: the article was scrubbed this morning 12/17/12, but some of the paragraphs are now contained in article under the headline: "Gunman Opens Fire At Sandy Hook Schools; Fatality Reported") Following the reproduced article below is a screen capture.

SHOOTING REPORTED AT SANDY HOOK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
State and Newtown police, ambulance, and emergency response personnel responded to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shortly after 9:30 am, Friday, following reports of a shooting. One child was carried from the school by a police officer, apparently seriously wounded. Other injuries are reported, and emergency personnel have set up triage facilities. Three victims were transported to Danbury Hospital by ambulance. The other children in the school exited school under state police protection.
Police are in the process of setting up a staging area for parents coming to the scene that is away from the school, possibly at Fairfield Hills, to alleviate the traffic congestion in the immediate area.
Sandy Hook School Principal Dawn Hochsprung told The Bee that a masked man entered the school with a rifle and started shooting multiple shows [sic] – more than she could count – that went "on and on."All of Newtown's schools are in lockdown, and the private schools have in town have been notified of an alleged shooting being reported at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Superintendent of Schools Janet Robinson said the schools were placed on lockdown the morning of Friday, December 14, "until we hear what is going on there."
Dr Robinson said it is best if parents do not try to call the district at this time, and the school district will release a message once further information is known.
The situation is evolving.

In another article on the newspaper's website under the headline, "Stories Of Heroism Emerging From School Shooting Tragedy", is what has become the official narrative of her death.

"But none were more tragic than the accounts of Principal Dawn Hochsprung, who was emerging from a meeting and apparently saw the gunman and warned several colleagues who were about to step into the hallway behind her, and into the shooter's direct line of fire. The last thing one witness recalled was her turning back and yelling a warning to lock the door as she apparently confronted the gunman. A few moments later she was shot."

This disturbing find is completely irreconcilable with the official narrative of the shooting spree. According to the newspaper, the reporter interviewed the Principal in person. Also, Ms. Hochsprung's statement to the newspaper included many specifics of the shooting and she was quoted as saying the shooting went "on and on". How is this even possible? She's suppose to be dead! And after appearing on the newspaper's website for 3 days, the article has now been scrubbed!

Unfortunately, this shooting event isn't only about opening a dialogue on gun control. Something is just not right here.


2ND UPDATE
If you go to the newspaper's link (see above), there is now an article entitled: "Retraction & Apology". This raises more questions. Who was the woman that identified herself to the reporter as the Principal? How did she know so many details? Why isn't this woman being investigated? And, of all the people for this woman to impersonate, why would it be the Principal, who had not yet been identified as being shot? What else would one expect the newspaper to say?

Here is another post about too many gunmen at Sandy Hook.

Handcuffed Suspect In Back Of Police Car Shoots Self - AGAIN!?!

NOW INCLUDES 2ND UPDATE

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Well, here we are again - another suspect has shot himself while handcuffed in the back of a police car. Today in Houston, Texas, a teenager, handcuffed and in the back of police car managed to produce a mystery gun and shoot himself. The teenager had been searched before being placed in the back seat of the police car. Does this sound familiar? Well, it should because it is at least the fourth such incident in the last five months!

(The back seat of a police car - the perfect place to attempt suicide)

On July 29th, 2012, in Jonesboro, Arkansas, 21 year old Chavis Carter, after being searched twice, handcuffed and placed in the back of a police car, managed to produce a gun and shoot himself in the head. The case received fairly wide Mainstream Media (MSM) coverage, but then slowly faded away.

Then, on August 8th, 2012, in Anderson, Indiana, a 17 year old male suspect, who had been searched, handcuffed and placed in the back of a police car, somehow committed suicide by strangling himself with the seat belt! Yes, you read that correctly. Police said the teenager managed to get his cuffs from behind himself and then used the seat belt to hang himself!

But wait! There's more!

Also, on August 8th, 2012, in Mobile, Alabama, a 51 year old male suspect, (pardon my repetition) who had been searched, handcuffed and placed in the back of a police car, managed to produce a gun and shot himself, but survived!

In all these cases (and in today's I'm sure), each police department promised to review their arrest procedures. Really, what? Police have been arresting people, searching them and handcuffing them for, say, over 100 years! Suddenly, there is a rash of police officers who can perform (sometimes twice) a search without a finding a loaded gun! Makes perfect bloody sense to me!


UPDATE
Not content with having suspects commit "suicide" in the back of their patrol cars, police have added a new wrinkle. Here is the story of a suspect who was handcuffed in the back of boat after Water Patrol had arrested him for suspected boating while intoxicated. While heading for shore, police claim the suspect stood up and either fell or jumped into the water. But wait! There's more! His life jacket fell off as he hit the water.

2ND UPDATE
Back in March of 2014, Victor White II, aged 22, was shot to death while handcuffed in the back of police car. You guessed it! He produced another one of those dang 'hidden guns' that police across the country seem to have the hardest time finding. The cop's idiotic account claims that White III was uncooperative when they were getting him out of the patrol car and produced a gun whereupon he shot himself in the back and later died.

The new wrinkle in this case is that the autopsy report has leaked out. It of course, contradicts the police description of what happened, including the fact that White III was not shot in the back, but in the chest! Remember he was handcuffed with his hands behind him. Also of note is the startling finding that his death was a suicide as opposed to an 'accident'. Read all about it here.

Is Newly Released Photo Of George Zimmerman Faked?

It's a tale of two noses folks!
One of these photos cannot be an accurate representation of George Zimmerman's nose the night he shot and killed Trayvon Martin (see my blog post here).

The newly released photo taken by Sanford Police the night of the crime shows Zimmerman with a bloody nose and/or lip and obvious swelling on the right side of his nose. However, a photo also taken by the Sanford Police at the police station later, shows no swollen nose and all that icky blood gone. Certainly the blood could have been cleaned off but swollen, so-called broken noses do not magically lose the swelling in less than 45 minutes. One of these photos cannot be a true representation.

(This photo taken at the scene of the shooting shows obvious swelling on the right side of Zimmerman's nose. Source: Sanford Police Department)



(This photo was taken at the police station less than 45 minutes later. The swelling has miraculously disappeared! Source: Sanford Police Department)


So, I tend to believe that the second photo taken at the police station is the accurate one. There is no way a broken nose's swelling could have disappeared in less than 45 minutes. The truth is out there - right in front of your nose!
