Professor Claims Navy Yard Shooting Was Staged

A Florida Atlantic University communications professor known for conspiracy theories has posted a series of pictures, audio clips, memos and news reports on his blog that he believes adds up to indicate the Navy Yard shooting in Washington D.C. was staged.

Professor James Tracy, who argued the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre “did not happen as reported — or may not have happened at all” and called the Boston Marathon bombings a “mass casualty drill” has posted his finding under the headline “Artifacts From The DC Navy Yard Shooting” on his Memory Hole Blog.

“Nothing seems to be adding up,” Tracy says in one of the videos on his blog post, adding terms like “crisis actors” to his analysis. He calls his “smoking gun evidence” an Associated Press article on the shootings date-stamped September 15, 2013–one day before Navy Yard shooting. He says he doesn’t buy the idea it could have been “just a glitch.”

The blog is not affiliated with Florida Atlantic University.

Much of his data was sent in by his blog’s readers, and includes photos that “depict one apparent shooting victim being attended to by pedestrians, as police officers stand by and an individual in plainclothes zones off part of the scene with crime tape,” Tracy states.

Other alleged evidence cited on the blog includes a 45-minute audio from the shooting that “at the very end it is determined that they will not be needing a large staging area for non-existent (my words) casualties.”

He describes another series of pictures as sketchy as well: “In this photograph pedestrians attend to an apparent shooting victim while a police officer (or soldier) looks on close by. Another figure that appears to be in plainclothes is visible demarcating area with crime scene tape. … First responders at the scene exhibiting perplexity and/or boredom.”

The blog also notes: “Witnesses have been documented stating that evacuation drills were known to have been taking place at the Navy Yard in the lead-up to the September 16 shooting event.”

Most news outlets, however, have identified the gunman as 34-year-old former Navy reservist Aaron Alexis. Police say he shot and killed 12 people in a Washington Navy Yard on Monday.

    At what distance was he shooting? What type of gun was used to kill these people? to many questions not answered to know if this guy did the killing, or if someone might have helped him.

    • Xaqshunr

      A shotgun.

      If you are trying parody, you are trying to parody a group that has proven themselves beyond parody, If you are serious. Well…

      • Redfray

        I guess the real problem to your word parody is, who do you trust? You can trust the ears, eyes, nose, skin, or imagination, but who knows which one to trust or imitate when the government is propagating their next voting generation? The odds of getting the truth is not even worth a dollar bet.

    We all need our lunatics for comic relief. thank you professor.

    • robin hood in reverse

      I don’t know what the liberal’s media take on the politicized shooting was because it was conspiracy theory.

  • Nemo Stone

    I’m renouncing my PhD and headed to a mountain top to become a hermit. There just is no reason in the world any more.

    • Lanceman

      Careful. That’s how Ted Kaczynski got started.

  • tommy

    The two shooters that escaped were there to eliminate the first shooter if it was found necessary, or the effect of the hallucinatory drugs wore off

  • It may be a bit early to come up with a conspiracy on the shooting. Wait for more info to be released. Or at least find that full smiles witness they interviewed. There was a woman they interviewed within hours of the shooting about what happened. She was all smiles with a twinkle in her eye the whole time she described the shooting. Creepy.

    Idle “Godwin” Question of the Day: How many Ph.D.’s supported the Nazis?
    Answer: A lot more than you’d think.

      Never close your mind to possibilities that you have never thought of.

      • Franz Glaus

        But College is for closing your mind to everything except a very narrow band of reality, carefully contrived for you, including your humiliation if you dare to question the reality codified for your flaccid mind.

      • The purpose of having an open mind, like having an open mouth, is to close it on something solid and nourishing.

    • CiceroTheLatest

      How about Rule 666: There is no event so tragic that Democrats and other Leftists won’t exploit it politically.

      Don’t recall the source but I once read that 90% of German PhDs were members of the Nazi party.

    The question remains: How was he allowed into the base with a stolen ID?

    • YeOldeMoptop

      He wasn’t. He had his own ID.

    The harvest of nuts is already pretty thick here.

    Isn’t the FAU mascot the burrowing owl? Sounds like somebody got lost in one of those burrows and may never come up.

  • Phil Aylward

    If colleges don’t screen the mentally disabled because they are adversely effecting society how do we expect the government to screen gun owners. Actually the government demonstrated that it can’t protect its own employees from its own employees in a militarily secured & legislated gun free zone.

  • derfelcadarn

    Staged ? No. Orchestrated ? That is far more likely.

  • Diggsc

    His only regret is that he won’t be able to vote for Obama any more.

  • Hank Seiter

    The worst conspiracy theories have come from the national socialist media when these kind of mass shootings occur. The latest is how the Navy Yard shooter (I refuse to print this dirtbag’s name) was allegedly shooting people with an “AR-15”. Now when the weight of public scrutiny comes into play, the leftard media had to drop their clearly biased anti-AR-15 narrative and finally tell the truth he only brought a shotgun with him (having been DENIED an AR-15 he tried to buy at a gun store) and the two pistols were probably pick-ups from his vics.
    The Newtown media narrative had similar information faux pas or LIES.

  • Hank Seiter

    P.S. I usually reserve this observation for leftard whackademics: “The only thing more dangerous than an uneducated fool is an educated fool.”

  • Skipper50

    The cathedrals of “higher learning” crumble before our eyes.

  • JimB

    Why is this idiot still on the payroll?

  • paulejb

    There is no dearth of lunatic professors on US college campuses. The really insane ones are revered for their Marxism.

  • Raptor Jesus

    What if everything we know is wrong?

    • Xaqshunr

      If we know it’s wrong, is that right? Because that would make two wrongs,and they don’t make a right. But you know, three lefts do.

  • vphathom

    Its possible ! just look at the moon landing ( what a joke)
    if that can be faked what else can be faked we have the best actors in the world
    and a government agenda against guns they will do anything to get rid of guns
    I have to agree with the Professor. New world order credo ( if you have an agenda –
    – create a situation {what for public out cry}, [news media ] then offer the agenda as the solution!!!!!!
    in this case a shooting weather its real or not the news media says it is.
    Now we wait for public out cry !!!

  • Why do these conspiracy nuts think that they are worth conspiring against?

  • teapartydoc

    It was the guy on the grassy knoll.

  • jack sprat

    Well, I’m all for a diversity of opinion on campus, but I also believe that including literal morons is taking things much too far. Let’s content ourselves in future with the figurative ones, shall we?

  • Beth

    The problem with conspiracy theorists (besides being bat guano crazy) is that they question everything (supposedly anyway), EXCEPT stupid conspiracy theories. And they think we’re the gullible “sheeple!” LMFAO

  • Rex Radd

    XD – What is this – a pysops convention?

    First a little history in false flag events – staged incidents to sway public opinion for political gain – happens all the time:


    Aaron Alexis was under “the delusional belief that he was being controlled or influenced by extremely low frequency electromagnetic waves” before he embarked on a bloody shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard, an FBI official said Wednesday.

    “ELF” refers to low-frequency electromagnetic waves, a technology used for submarine communications that conspiracy theorists believe the government employs to monitor and manipulate unsuspecting citizens, the FBI said.


    Someone in the FBI wasn’t communicating with the FBI agent responsible for those statements because the FBI consulted a Russian expert in psychotronic weapons:

    “The FBI consulted Smirnov regarding the Waco Siege in 1993. Smirnov proposed piping subliminal messages from sect members’ families through the phone lines during negotiations. David Koresh to surrender, however the FBI declined the plan.”

    So even if the FBI really did reject that plan, someone in the FBI is aware that psychotronics exist.

    “The Institute caught the attention of Chris Morris and Janet Morris who were reportedly attempting to sell technology to the United States military.”

    We also talked about M2 Technology and how it just disappeared from the web and google’s search engine. Gone but not forgotten:



    But it was archived:


    Still up and running:

    So neurological weapons really do exist; they do, they do, they do! Let’s not try to pretend that they don’t. The question before us now is, would someone use them to sway public opinion for political gain?
