Many conspiracy theorists believe Sandy Hook as well as the Boston Marathon bombing were government conducted terrorist strikes, designed to get the guns away from the American public and test if presented correctly would citizens willingly submit to marshal law?
So was this a government attempt to get the citizens to give up their guns?
And why was the last lead producing plant in the USA closed down by government regulations, only after they bought up all the lead bullets produced?
Interesting that at the end of world ward II when Japanese generals were interviewed, they were asked. “After Pearl Harbor the west coast of the USA was completely defenseless. Why didn’t Japan attack the west coast of the USA?” The defeated Japanese generals said “Because we knew that most of your citizens were very well armed and we knew if we landed we would be picked off by the citizens defending their homeland.”
There have been many documentaries about this part of Connecticut and powerful hauntings or evil spiritual power.
The one thing for sure about Sandy Hook, is an author who gained world wide fame by first writing a book about children killing children, then a movie about children killing children lives and was inspired with these concepts by the ruling atmosphere in Sandy Hook Connecticut. The name of the movie franchise is “The Hunger Games”
Directors Marc Levin and Mark Benjamin did not want to create a conflict of interest when making a CNN show about the mayor of Chicago, brother of WME co-CEO Ari Emanuel.
PARK CITY — Chicagoland directors Marc Levin and Mark Benjamin found themselves in an awkward situation when they began working on the eight-part non-scripted series that chronicles the politics and policy of the Windy City.
The William Morris Endeavor clients decided to ask that their agency not represent them in the deal so as to avoid a conflict of interest when covering Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, brother of WME co-CEO Ari Emanuel. The agency agreed with the decision.
“We didn’t want to be questioned about anything,” says Levin, who is in Park City for the Sundance premiere of episode one of Chicagoland on Sunday.

CNN is launching the series, which is being executive produced by Robert Redford, beginning on March 6. CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker, Redford and the filmmakers will be on hand for a Q&A following the premiere on Sunday. Redford is also repped by WME.
The filmmakers tell The Hollywood Reporter that the project is an evenhanded look at the mayor and the city, which was rocked by a bitter teacher’s strike and has grappled with a high murder rate. “The teacher’s union thought we were with Rahm, and Rahm thought we were the teacher’s union,” Benjamin says.
The pair gained extraordinary access to Rahm Emanuel, which was facilitated by David Axelrod, the Chicago-based former campaign adviser to President Barack Obama. Rahm was Obama’s first chief of staff and helped him get elected in 2008. Ari was instrumental in mobilizing the Hollywood donor community to back Obama.
Levin and Benjamin shot footage over an eight-month period in which the murder rate did go down, but they say they were prepared to cover the city’s story however it unfolded. “We expect criticism,” says Levin. “So long as it’s from all sides, we’ll be happy. If someone says we’re too kind or too critical to one side, that wouldn’t be good.”
As for whether or not they will continue to be represented by WME agent Dan Shear now that Chicagoland is behind them, Levin jokes, “We’ll see on Sunday.”

In a historic step for Hollywood, Paramount Pictures has become the first major studio to stop releasing movies on film in the United States.
Paramount recently notified theater owners that the Will Ferrell comedy “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” which opened in December, would be the last movie that would it would release on 35-millimeter film.
The studio’s Oscar-nominated film “The Wolf of Wall Street” from director Martin Scorsese is the first major studio film that was released all digitally, according to theater industry executives who were briefed on the plans but not authorized to speak about them.

The decision is significant because it is likely to encourage other studios to follow suit, accelerating the complete phase-out of film, possibly by the end of the year. That would mark the end of an era: film has been the medium for the motion picture industry for more than a century.

The Wind Rises: Nothing from Japanese anime master Hayao Miyazaki ever disappoints, even as he works into his 70s at the famed Studio Ghibli. This unusual piece of work, covering decades of time, is a poetic reverie about a pre-WWII aeronautical engineer who becomes inspired by visits to a fantasy world in the clouds.
Gravity: Nothing from Mexico master Alfonso Cuaron fails to ignite the fires of my imagination. That applies even with his part of the Harry Potter franchise. This time around, working from a script he co-authored with his son, Cuaron tells an American story set in space with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as astronauts who will soon face a crisis.
Blue is the Warmest Color: Nothing about Tunis-born director Abdellatif Kechiche’s lesbian love story is routine, so this French production won the Palme d’Or as best film at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. It is said to be frankly told, sexually explicit and extraordinarily personal and insightful. Can’t wait!
The next time you hear about the imminent death of film, think on the Toronto International Film Festival, which used to be known by the brash title The Festival of Festivals, and has grown over its 37-year history to become just that.
The event, which kicked off Sept. 5 and runs until Sept. 15, is a deal-making Mecca and a cultural force to rival the Academy Awards. In fact, the ovations that will greet many of this year’s 288 features also function as a kind of starter’s pistol for the race to the Oscars. They may be six months away, but the clock has started ticking.
The opening day features only a handful of films — screenings don’t start until 3:30 p.m., and half the venues remain dark until Friday — but even at quarter-speed, the power of the festival is astonishing.
The Venice film festival opened this week with the premiere of the latest George Clooney film “Gravity” and a gay romantic comedy, “Gerontophilia”.
Gravity, a sci-fri thriller starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, opened the festival, which is the oldest film festival in the world. Gerontophilia is made by Toronto based photographer, pornographer and indie director Bruce LaBruce.
The Venice film festival does not have the protocol as the Cannes film festival, and is regarded as more adventurous than Cannes. After the Venice film festival is the massively important and influential Toronto Film Festival.

Former Disney child star Miley Cyrus shocked parents and fans at her MTV VMB performance at the weekend. The 20 year old’s danced in nude hot pants, with dance moves of a highly sexual nature. After the performance the media have been quick to judge the young singer, made famous by Hannah Montana. However, many have blamed the media of hypocrisy arguing that young female performers feel obliged to push the boundaries of what is acceptable in order to be successful.
Last year Miley Cyrus father, Billy Ray Cyrus, spoke out about his concerns for his daughter, saying he feared for her life and that he believed his family were under attack from Satan. In the interview he went on to say, “Somewhere along this journey, both mine and Miley’s faith has been shaken that saddens me the most.”
Billy Ray Cyrus was highly critical of her handlers, saying that believed both his daughter and himself were used in order to generate headlines to promote her career, “some of these handlers are perhaps more interested in handling Miley’s money than her safety and her career”.
In December Mr. Williamson was arrested for hate crimes against the state for telling his 10 year old boy that “anal sex was not only wrong but that a plethora of deceases arise from such practice” allegedly forcing his son to read it for himself from the Bible.
After his son read this, he told his 11 year old “gay” boyfriend at school and the teacher overheard and brought this to the attention of the Southern Poverty Law Center who immediately picked up the case.
Within two weeks Mr. & Mrs Williamson’s son Tommy, was forcibly removed from his biological parents home by Child Protective Services and was placed in a foster home with Mr. and Mr. Joe Robberson until the child’s fate could be determined by the courts.
During his trial Mr. Williamson backed up his claim that anal sex is not God’s way and many diseases come from this practice stating “just because the Affordable Health Care Act will pick up the additional health burden on the failing US economy, is it really right to teach children unsafe sexual practices?”
This did not fair well with the San Francisco judge being homosexual himself, and very quickly it was determined by the courts that Tommy’s Bible reading parents, were imparting hate to their child, and for his protection, Tommy was made a ward of the Court.
Two weeks later Mr. & Mr. Joe Robberson, Tommy’s foster parents during this time, filed a petition to adopt Tommy, whom they had both fallen in love with stating: “We can give Tommy the love and up bringing every child in the United States deserves and is provided for under the law.” Mr Robberson cried to Mr. Joe Robberson “I can’t imagine the emotional damage Tommy could have suffered, being raised with that hateful world view his biological mother and father were imparting to him. Every child has the right to have anal sex with whom ever and how many partners he chooses and decide for himself if he likes it, without being told that behavior is against his own body and against God”.
Within 2 months, Mr. & Mr. Joe Robberson adopted Tommy, and now Tommy’s thinking is strait. (Pardon the pun) “Finally Tommy understands true love and acceptance of all people. Tommy has completed our barren marriage in a way we never could have known without him, and united us as a true American law abiding family”.
In addition Mr. & Mr Robberson, filed a restraining order against Mr. Williamson who is now serving time for violating that restraining order to see his son. Mr. Williamson could not be reached for comment as he is now in solitary confinement for the duration.

Zero Dark Thirty, Violence in Entertainment
US News reported that Chris Dodd defends ‘Zero Dark Thirty’, – Violence in Entertainment, and said that regulating content is a slippery slope.
The president of the Motion Picture Association of America, former U.S. senator Chris Dodd, praised the movie industry for its economic, cultural, and social contributions to the country on Friday, while speaking at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. He discussed violence in the media and defended the entertainment industry against claims by the NRA (National Rifle Association), that it is to blame for the recent spate of mass shootings in America.
“I feel very strongly that this industry has been on the forefront of freedom of speech from its inception,” said Dodd, who represented Connecticut in the Senate. “Films that have challenged and provoked not always were received warmly.”
He said he sees the industry’s role in the depiction of violence is providing the tools to people—particularly parents—to know what is in film, through the ratings system and other platforms of information.
“We provide choice for people, a remarkable choice for entertainment, not every movie is for everyone,” he said.
