Sandy Hook Newtown CT. Principal Dawn Hochsprung to The Bee AFTER She is murdered !?

Sandy Hook Newtown CT. Principal Dawn Hochsprung gives interview to The Bee AFTER She is murdered !?

......................
Update April 3,2013

A new twist to the Dawn HochspruNg story, or at least new to me, is the photo at link below of husband George Hochsprung with GE Capital money launderer Peter Lanbza,and father of alleged Sandy Hook mass murderer Adam Lanza.You would think they might be in different social circles seeing as Peter Lanza  is so highly placed in financial crimes and offshore theft and money laundering with GE,Ernst and Young,as well as the former John Hancock,(now Manulife of Canada), where his wife, Nancy Lanza,was also at one time occupied - but no ! - there he is socializing with the humble school teacher George whose wife Dawn was even of higher social AND FINANCIAL STATUS THAN GEORGE BEFORE SHE WAS ALLEGEDLY KILLED BY PETER LANZA'S SON ADAM AT SANDY HOOK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.:

.................



Since posting this blog yesterday,I just found this aricle today from newtownbee.com claiming someone lied to them at Sandy Hook School about being Principal Dawan Hochsprung immediately after Hochsprung was supposed to be dead AND they the 'news' believed the unidentified liar without verifying the claiment's authenticity ! And this in a small town where the news people should know the Sandy Hook principal in my opinion.The person who was impersonating Principal Dawn Hochsprung should be in jail by now or The Bee of Newtown's anonymous  reporter should be fired !
However, they don't say just who the liar was who showed up at the scene of the tragedy to tell what they claim is an outright lie themeselves below,that some woman 'identified herself to our reporter as the principal of the school' ! Highly suspicious that a habitual liar just happensd to appear at the scene of such a tragedy and lies about being the principal of a school that has just had over 20 people in it murdered ! That would be 'news' in and of itself and particularly in light of the fact the very person this liar is impersonatiing has just been blown awaay herself inside that very schoool ! This seems a very tall tale not only on the part of the unknown impersonator of Dawn Hochsprung but on the part of the Newqtown The Bee itself !And in this regads becomes even stranger that 'coincidentally' the Bing SEARCH ENGINE gives a date of one day before the incident ever occured the 13th of December for the date the story  first appeared on the newtownbee.com website ! Now how do they explain that - the same way that United WAY 'explained' that their solicitation for donations for victims of Sandy Hook Newtown CT alleged massacre appeared on a Google search and cache days before the event and that it was a 'mistake' by the Google cache dating system !? And now Bing has the same 'problem' ? It would appear to me that it is the Newtown The Bee that should tell us just who was hanging around outside in the parking lot with FBI and state and local police and yet cfeeling perfectly safe and secure to lie outright about being the Principal Dawn Hochsprung when  she was is suppposed to have been dead upon arrival of the police and The Bee reporter !Talk about,uh,'chutzpa'.

Retraction And Apology

An early online report from the scene at the December 14 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School quoted a woman who identified herself to our reporter as the principal of the school. The woman was not the school's principal, Dawn Hochsprung, who was killed in the Friday morning attack. The quote was removed from subsequent online versions of the story, but the original story did remain in our online archive for three days before being deleted.
We apologize for whatever confusion this may have caused our readers and for any pain or anguish it may have cause the Hochsprung family.


......................

Below is a Bing cache  of an article from Newtown,Connecticut The Bee newspaper AFTER Sandy Hook Principal Dawn Hochsprung was suppoedly dead after being shot by video game enthusiast Adam Lanza
son of GE Capital money launderer Peter Lanza ! As strange as the news article itself is in getting an interview from Principal Dawn Hochsprung AFTER she is supposedly killed by Adam Lanza is the fact that the story is dated by the paper as the 14th of December,the 'official' date that the event occured and yet the
Bing cache date is dated ONE DAY   before the event on 13/12/2012 ! 
Because I searched the cache from Guatemala it is written in Spanish but the date is CLEAR in any language.You may cut and paste and view the link for yourself as long as Bing leaves the cache available but I have it below for the record.
I came across this strange post 'death' interview from Principal Hochsprung as well as the cache by first searching on the Google search engine for  desiree juarez united way   because aangirfan.com mentioned that a person with the name Desiree Juarez who appears to be on the west coast of the U.S. created a fund to raise money for the 'victims' of Newtown on the east coast  ALSO a day or so before the event JUST AS UNITED WAY has been suspected of doing.Because United Way is also suspect in a similar before the fact fund raising drive I googled the two together and found godlikeproductions.com also was discussing both Desiree Juarez and Uited Way for the same reason and that site in turn led me to sandyhooktruth.wordpress.com   and the cache of The Bee news story below that is dated December 14 by The Bee although the cache is dated a day before the alleged  'event' by Bing !

This quote alone from the article that the corrupt and one might say criminal false reporting of The Bee makes clear that Dawn Hochsprung is interviewed AFTER and NOT BEFORE  the shootings or alleged shooting take place and that she is or was alive to tell the tale and even AFTER THE FACT Principal Hochsprug doesn't know who  the shooter is ! So even AFTER THE EVENT the main witness is stating she does NOT know who 'killed' her ! Hochsprung  says as you can read below,'Sandy Hook School Principal Dawn Hochsprung told The Bee that a masked man entered the school with a rifle and started shooting multiple shows – more than she could count – that went "on and on."' - The Bee newspaper of Newtown

So obviously she is or was still alive after the event and the report or false report of The Bee is interviewing her after the fact and NOT as it is  occuring as the main stream media as well as the U.S. government has lied about ever since.We know that both white 'Jewish' Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut and 'Zionist Catholic' President of Vice have done nothing but bear false witness about Adam Lanza being a 'video game'
playing mass murderer.Perhaps the government should administer both some sodium pentothal  and see if that supposed 'truth serum' works becuase the are both habitual liars.Both are guilty of covering up for the Israelis of ICTS International who allowed 9/11 to happen through their control of Logan Airport Boston and Newark airports and did it through a stock fraud incorporated in Joe Biden's state of Delaware in 1999 and whoise shares were held 'coincidentally' by John Hancock as well as GE where Peter and Nancy have been employed !

The story as I had understood it from the main stream media as well as various blogs is that Principal Dawn Hochsprung was supposed to have called the media or The Bee in the middle of the crisis that supposedly took her life which was in itself strange.But now the plot sickens even more with the news article below in which The Bee CLAIMS TO BE INTERVIEWING HER AFTER THE SHOOTING IN WHICH SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE BEEN KILLED ! ¿¡Capische?! :

Shooting Reported Sandy Hook Elementary School

12/14/2012

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 – 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.

Principal Dawn Hochsprung was initially reported as a survivor!

Shortly after the “shootings”, Sandy Hook principal Dawn Hochsprung gave an interview at the Newtown Bee about her experience as she encountered the shooter.
sandybeearticle
Of course all of the other media sites listed Dawn as a victim within hours of the event.  Three days later The Bee wrote a retraction, but how is it possible that they could get something like this wrong?  It’s impossible to simply overlook all of these things, it’s just too much.

  1. Hattie says:
    The BING Cache of this story shows that it was online on December 13, 2012- the day before the shooting! (I have had to click the link (which sometimes shows unavailable) and then hit refresh and it shows it. You can see the BING Cache date there!)
  2. Bala dasa says:
    And it didn’t become a major issue that according to the BEE, someone ON THE SCENE IMPERSONATED the Principal. This person knew the principal’s name, how to spell it, and gave a false report.
    The other possibility is that the principal was supposed to live and the Newtown Bee had that article posted on their site late at night on the 13th so it would be there in the morning. Is there a way to post an article to your server with a time delay?
    If this was the case, those photos are stock photos taken the last time Sandy Hook elementary participated in a drill. The fact that the cars match up with aerial views of the parking lot that day is because there are assigned parking spaces. The principal died, and the retraction was necessary.
  3. Bala dasa says:
    The Bing cache has been scrubbed by the way.
    Didn’t take em long did it?

    No, it’s there. Just refresh the page and you’ll see it.

Sandy Hook massacre: Official story spins out of control



Teddy bears left at a memorial for the child victims of the Sandy Hook massacre
The massacre of 20 children and 7 adults at the Sandy Hook elementary school last Friday was one more in a long line of atrocious mass murders committed in the USA. By now, four days later, an official version of events has more or less solidified to explain the chain of events. The familiar 'lone gunman' narrative has once more stoked the hot-button issue of gun control and left the general population as clueless as ever as to why people suddenly 'go postal' and target the most vulnerable members of society.

On closer inspection, however, there is clearly more to many of these mass shootings than meets the eye. Very often the earliest reports present information that directly contradicts key foundations of the final 'official' analysis of events. Granted, confusion is natural when a story breaks, but some of the initial reports conflict so completely with the lone gunman narrative that I'm going to compile them here and then try to put this tragedy in a more objective context. In his speech at the Sandy Hook Interfaith Prayer Vigil in Newtown, Connecticut on Sunday night, President Obama quoted the following biblical passage:
"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."

~ 2 Corinthians 4:18
The traumatised Newtown community deserves the facts without the spin. Everyone touched by this brutal event deserves to know what really happened, so let's fix our eyes on what remains unseen...

A 20-year-old 'tech geek' named Adam Lanza is supposed to have snapped early last Friday, December 14th, shot dead his mother Nancy Lanza, loaded her car up with her guns and ammo, then driven it across town to his former school, the Sandy Hook Elementary School, shot dead 27 people in two classrooms and an adjoining hallway, then turned one of his guns on himself.

That's how most will now remember the shooting, but is that actually what happened?

All the child victims were first-graders between the ages of 6 and 7. If there's any saving grace to be found in this event, it's that it was all over within minutes. Police were reportedly on the scene "instantaneously" and by then the shooting had ended. Listed among the slain school teachers and administrative staff was the school principal, 47-year-old Dawn Hochsprung. Right here we encounter our first problem:
The Newtown Bee
December 14, 2012

Sandy Hook School Principal Dawn Hochsprung told The Bee that a masked man entered the school with a rifle and started shooting multiple shots - more than she could count - that went "on and on."


© The Newtown Bee
How could the principal have survived to give this statement to local press describing what happened ... if she was one of the first to be killed? Incidentally, The Newtown Bee's article was taken down yesterday. Of course, a plausible explanation is that a reporter mistook another teacher for the principal.

We were initially told that two handguns - a Glock and a Sig Sauer - were found next to the body of the dead shooter, while a third weapon, a .223-caliber rifle was also recovered "in the trunk of a car" later, in the school's parking lot. All of the weapons were allegedly legally bought and registered in Nancy Lanza's name. The car was later identified as a black Honda, also registered in her name. More weapons have since been introduced to the story but we'll get back to those later on.

Besides anonymous 'law enforcement officials' telling the media that Adam Lanza was a former pupil at the school, they also said his mother was currently a teacher there, that she was found among the dead and that her son had specifically sought out her classroom first. But when it emerged that teaching staff at the school had never heard of a Nancy Lanza, it was suggested that she was a substitute teacher whose name therefore mightn't appear on staff lists.

But this claim too has disappeared down the memory hole because it's now known that neither Nancy nor her son had any connection with the school whatsoever. Adam Lanza was in fact home-schooled. Nancy Lanza has since been painted as a "survivalist" who loved firearms, taught her sons how to shoot and was "stockpiling" because she was "worried about economic collapse."...............

Despite "family insiders" claiming that he was a "deeply disturbed kid", Adam Lanza, like so many other alleged 'lone(r) gunmen' before him, does not fit the profile of a mass-murdering maniac. His 24-year-old brother, Ryan Lanza, said he hadn't seen his brother since 2010. This fact brings into question Ryan's claim that his younger brother may have had his identity card on his person at the school shooting. Although perhaps the question that needs to be asked here is, why would a person bother to carry identification with them after going to the trouble of dressing up in a bullet-proof vest, mask and black camouflage gear and going on a killing spree ...

The live emergency services audio feed from the scene reveals some interesting observations from first responders that have been completely overlooked by the mainstream media. Note that the unedited version lasts over two hours, so the abridged version I'm going to quote from has a compressed sequence of events that are not in real time. In this abridged version, we hear at 1.38' a report that gunfire is still being heard, even though the shooting was supposed to have ended by the time police arrived. The next report at 2.35' says that the shooting has stopped and the school is "in lockdown". At 3.23', the police relay a teacher's report that she saw "two shadows running past the gym" [not "two shooters", as we previously reported on SOTT.net]. This is followed by another officer on the scene who says, "Yeh, we got 'em, they're coming at me! ... [inaudible] ... Coming up the driveway real slowly!" That same officer at 5.40' says he has them "proned out", which presumably means he has apprehended them and they are laid out on the ground, before another officer comes on to say, "be aware that we do have a second [inaudible] ..."

Later on, at 19.10', an officer who sounds out of breath, like he's just given chase, reports what I think sounds like "these guys" followed certainly by "multiple weapons, including long rifles and shotgun". If these were found so early on, why were they not included in the initial press reports which stated that three firearms had been found - the above mentioned Glock, Sig Sauer and Bushmaster AR-15 rifle? Further conflicting, and possibly planted evidence was thrown into the mix by 'law enforcement officials' when they published video footage of a long weapon being retrieved from the trunk of a car. Look closely and you'll see that it's a shotgun, not a rifle. In addition, this 'discovery' was made late in the day (it's dark outside), while the Bushmaster rifle was first reported found in the trunk of a car much earlier in the day.

Besides the above two suspects "proned out" in front of the school, another suspected gunman was apprehended after he gave chase, this time in the woods next to the school:


The police are clearly chasing someone whom they appear to apprehend in the middle of the woods next to the school, a fact confirmed by several eyewitnesses:


This fleeing suspect, wearing camouflage gear, a bulletproof vest and armed with four guns, has since disappeared from media coverage. Who was this person and how did he know what "it" was when he protested that "I didn't do it"?

Perhaps most astonishingly, this suspect arrested in the woods was named in an Associated Press report as 24-year-old Ryan Lanza. The original report has long since vanished of course, but you can see it referenced here. This was despite the fact that Ryan had already been named as the deceased suspect inside the school, lying next to two handguns.

Ryan Lanza was actually at work in Hoboken, New Jersey, that morning when his name and photo began circulating in the media. And so, for most of Friday, the 'lone shooter' was erroneously reported as "Ryan Lanza, confirmed dead." At the same time, we were being told that Ryan's girlfriend and a room-mate were reported missing, also from Hoboken, New Jersey.

So this isn't just a case of mistaken identity, as later claimed when it was suggested that Adam had a piece of identification belonging to his brother on his person. Not one, but BOTH Lanza brothers were being placed by 'law enforcement officials' at the scene of the shooting. It could be that Ryan's quick reflexes to leave his workplace to get on a bus to go back to his apartment while protesting innocence via his Facebook page may have saved his life.

Now remember, all of this confusion somehow resulted from a single guy going into a school and shooting children and teachers and then shooting himself, all within three minutes. Surely it should have been fairly easy to rapidly and concretely identify the details of such a crime and the scene.

What it's starting to look like is that the Lanzas were framed for this mass shooting in advance. Long before any suspects were named, and even as we were being told that Nancy Lanza was among the dead at the school, we were told that police were investigating a murder in ... Hoboken, New Jersey, where a body had been found at the home of ... Ryan Lanza! An older "confirmed" version of events had RYAN, not Adam, travelling to Hoboken that morning to murder his father before going to the school in Newtown, Connecticut. Other variants had Ryan OR Adam going to both their divorced parents' homes and killing them before going to the school.

School shooting survivor tells her story

Shari Thornberg was having a day like any other until she walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday. A few terrifying minutes later, 26 people were dead.

A Newtown school staffer tells in her first interview what she lived through at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Shari Thornberg says she was running late and fears she passed the gunman when she walked through the parking lot to the front doors of Sandy Hook Elementary School at 9:30 Friday morning.
That was the time, police say, that 20-year-old Adam Lanza entered the school for an attack that killed 20 children and six adults, and wounded two others. Police say he earlier shot his mother to death in their home.
Thornberg, an educational assistant for a fourth-grader with special needs, says the school's doors were locked and she was buzzed in. She held the door open for a co-worker and walked through the foyer into the principal's office, where she signed in and glanced at the staff news bulletin.
Principal Dawn Hochsprung, who would be killed moments later, was not in the office. A school nurse and an office worker were there.
Thornberg left the office, turned left into the foyer and left again down a hallway past the cafeteria. She went into a math-science room to hang her coat and store her lunch.
She happily showed two colleagues a photo of her 17-year-old son, Patrick, a Newtown High School senior and football player.
"Then we heard pop-pop-pop, pop-pop-pop, and I thought, 'That's a weird noise,'" Thornberg says. "I first thought it was the janitor taking down risers and setting up tables."
The school's intercom was on, and Thornberg next heard "more shots, screaming, crying and whimpering." She heard the janitor yell at the gunman, "'Put the gun down! Put the gun down.'"
She and two colleagues locked the door of the teacher's room, "and the three of us struggled to get in a small closet.
"We heard everything over the intercom, though it was muffled because our closet door was closed," she says. "We just waited in the closet, saying The Lord's Prayer out loud over and over again, and praying for all staff members and the children."
Thornberg says they waited in the closet for "what seemed like forever." Police said the gunman entered at 9:30 a.m. and the shooting was over in about 10 minutes.












"It was scary when we heard the classroom door jiggle and thought it was the gunman," Thornberg says. "When the shooting was over, we learned it was the janitor checking to see whether the door was locked."
Thornberg says she was told by school staff that the gunman entered the principal's office and left after seeing no one there. The nurse and the office worker were hiding under desks, and the nurse could see the gunman's pants leg, Thornberg says.
The gunman went down the left hallway. Hochsprung and school psychologist Mary Sherlach were killed, and a teacher whom police have not yet identified was wounded, when they went into the hallway from a conference room, Thornberg says.
The injured teacher crawled back into the room where at least three other adults were inside, and they locked the door.
A substitute kindergarten teacher, whom police also have not identified, was slightly wounded further down the hallway.
The gunman, Thornberg says, did not enter the first classroom on the left where the teacher, Kaitlin Roig, had piled 16 first-graders on top of one another in the bathroom.
"I think Dawn coming out of the conference room may have distracted the gunman from going into that classroom, Thornberg says.
The gunman then moved down the hallway to two other first-grade classrooms and fired into both rooms, she says. When he was finished, he fatally shot himself, police say.
Thornberg says police arrived at the school and, unaware of who was doing the shooting, apprehended the janitor and another man outside the school.
Most of the children and Thornberg raced to a firehouse down the street, where "it was chaos," she says.
"Who would have thought this would happen in an idyllic little school in the woods where you would want your kids to go to?" Thornberg asks.
She says the school's teachers are traumatized, including some who are not ready to return to work and some who are questioning whether to resume their teaching careers.
"My biggest concern is how we are going to move forward," Thornberg says.
But then, thinking of younger generations and her three children — 17-year-old Patrick, 20-year-old Eric and 22-year-old Colleen, who all went through the Newtown school system — Thornberg says she is determined to take on the future.
"Our children have lived through the Sept. 11 attack, the Aurora, Colo., movie massacre and now this attack, and you realize how much evil is in the world," she says. "I feel for their generation and know they need much more love and concern. Our children need us to be strong."
