University Professor Fired for Questioning Sandy Hook Inconsistencies
Up until the first week in January 2016, James Tracy was an “associate professor of communications at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton”. According to USA Today, the FAU administration sent Tracy a termination letter (1).

The letter came after several exchanges between Tracy and the FAU administration over Tracy’s failure to submit the required forms “outlining any professional activities they [employees] engage in outside of the university.”

Huffington Post reported that “Tracy provided a letter saying he shouldn’t have to fill out the forms” (2).

However, on December 14, he tuned in the required paperwork. According to Huffington Post, “He admitted using university resources for his outside work — mainly his personal blog — contradicting what he had previously told his supervisors, according to the letter.”

Parents of Sandy Hook Victim

Tracy has been very vocal about how he thinks the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax and that paid “crisis actors” helped the government stage the tragic event. He felt Lenny and Veronique Pozner fabricated a son and served him up as one of the Sandy Hook Elementary School victims.

In December, the Sun-Sentinel of Fort Lauderdale, Florida published an op-ed letter submitted by the Pozners who wrote that Tracy had posted a picture of their 6-year-old son, Noah, on his blog. They requested that he [Tracy] remove the photo, but in response, Tracy demanded the Pozners provide proof to him that “Noah ever existed.”

The Pozners wrote that “A plethora of conspiracies arose after Sandy Hook, but none received as much mainstream publicity as Tracy.” In fact, the Pozners complained that, “This professor achieved fame among the morbid and deranged precisely because his theories were attached to his academic credentials and his affiliation with FAU.”

The Pozners claimed they were being harassed by Tracy. In fact, they said that part of Tracy’s campaign of harassment included a “certified letter demanding proof of their parentage”.

According to USA Today, Tracy posted on his blog that the Pozners were “alleged parents” and had fabricated their son’s death certificate in an attempt to “cash in on Sandy Hook”.

Tracy Fired After Pozners’ Letter Published

A week after the Pozners’ letter was published, the FAU administrators sent a memo to Tracy reminding him that outside professional activities had to be cleared with the university to ensure there was no conflict of interest. After several exchanges, Tracy was fired from the university.

Tracy’s accusations haven’t been just to Sandy Hook and the Pozners. According to USA Today, the professor wrote articles that questioned the recent Paris terrorist attacks. His blog covers topics such as the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy and brother Robert Kennedy as well as Martin Luther King, Jr.

USA Today published from Tracy’s blog post, “It is now beyond question that the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, and Martin Luther King, Jr. all involved patsies, additional gunman (sic) and perhaps most importantly, mass media complicity to achieve their political ends.”

In response to Tracy’s firing, Stephen Lendman of Global Research wrote, “Academic freedom is a fundamental principle, which has been blatantly violated by Florida Atlantic University” (4).

    academic freedom has limits. It is my understanding that he harassed the family of the dead student. That goes beyond academic freedom. To dismiss the professor raises the question of whether he had tenure. If he had, it would not be so easy to fire him without a serious case being made. If he had not tenure, he certainly would not get it at that school.
