Was Sandy Hook a Hoax? Part 5: Robbie Parker

Was Robbie Parker a Crisis Actor?

According to newspaper reports, Robbie Parker- the father of Newtown victim Emilie Parker- is a physician assistant originally from Ogden, Utah, who relocated to Connecticut less than a year ago after living in Oregon and New Mexico.  Many of the Sandy Hook Truthers cite this nomadic background when making the argument that Parker is, in reality, a crisis actor hired by the government in the staging of the Newtown massacre.

Connecticut's Department of Public Health maintains a licensing verification website, which allows people to search the credentials of any service provider required by the state to be licensed- from barbers to funeral directors.  This includes Physician Assistants.

According to the Connecticut eLicensing website, Robert Parker does have a license to practice as a Physician Assistant in that state.  It appears that his license bears a New Mexico address, and his town is listed as Rio Rancho.  His license was issued on 9/28/11, and his record is as clean as a whistle- no disciplinary actions, revocations, or pending charges.  Nada.  Zilch.

His license shows that he is listed as PA-C, which means that he is certified.  In the United States, a physician assistant cannot become a PA-C until he/she has passed the NCCPA-administered Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam.  This national certification allows the physician assistant to practice in all 50 states, which explains why there is a NM address on his CT license, and why there is no record of him in the licensing databases of Oregon or Utah.  There is, however, a record of Mr. Parker's licensing information in New Mexico, where he lived prior to Newtown:

Licensee    Robert Knowlden Parker         License Type    Physician Assistant Medical
Business address    NICU Office/Presbyterian Hosp     License Number    PA2010-0055
Business address    1100 Central Ave SE     License Status    Active
Business city state zip     Albuquerque NM 87106     License Date    09/16/2010
Business phone    None    **License Expires    03/01/2013

This discovery should come as a big setback for the Sandy Hook Truthers who claim that Robbie Parker is an actor hired by the government, since earning the title of PA-C requires passing a rigorous certification exam.   Additionally, physician assistants must earn 100 Continuing Medical Education (CME) hours and reregister their certificate with the NCCPA every two years- that's a lot of work for an actor. 

However, our research has revealed a rather bizarre coincidence- there is only one other Robert Parker licensed as a Physician Assistant in the United States- and that man is Robert Washington Parker, who was born in 1921 and lived in Littleton, Colorado, which- as we all know- was the scene of the 1999 Columbine High School Massacre

Another strange coincidence is that this Robert Parker's specialty is listed as aviation medicine, which suggests that this individual has a military background (that should give all of the conspiracy kooks something to chew on!)

Remembering the ill-fated voyage of the Aerowagon

From 1917 to 1922, the Bolshevik-led Red Army battled the anti-Communist White Army during the Russian Civil War.  By the end of 1919 the Bolsheviks had taken the cities of Omsk and Kiev, and had successfully repelled the White Russian siege of Petrograd.  However, the Bolshevik's momentum would be short-lived as the White Army, after retreating across the Baikal, regrouped and joined forces with Gigory Semyonov's Transbaikal Cossacks.  As the Red Army's losses began to mount, especially in Poland, the Bolsheviks attempted to gain a competitive advantage by embracing new technologies, sometimes with disastrous results.  Such is the sad tale of young inventor Valerian Abakovsky and his Aerowagon.

Abakovsky was a Latvian-born inventor who earned his living as a chaffeur for Cheka, the state security organization created by Lenin.  His position granted him access to many high-ranking Soviets and, although details are scarce, Abakovsky most likely used his influence within th…

The Incest Capital of the World?

At the far eastern edge of Kentucky, nestled in Appalachia, resides Letcher County. In spite of its isolation and poverty (approximately 30% of the county's population lives below the poverty line), Letcher County has managed to grow at an impressive rate, from a population of just 9,172 in 1900 to a present-day population of nearly 25,000. However, even if Letcher County tripled or quadrupled its present population, there's still a pretty good chance that virtually all of the county's inhabitants would be related to each other-- thanks to one particularly fertile family whose astounding rate of reproduction can put even the friskiest rabbit to shame.

Around the year 1900, Letcher County was the home of a man by the name of Jason L. Webb, who made national headlines for having the one of the largest families in the world. According to newspaper reports of the era, Jason had 19 children, 175 grandchildren, and 100 great-grandchildren. Perhaps even more impressive was his br…

Jenny Hanivers, Mermaids, Devil Fish, and Sea Monks

Three centuries before P.T. Barnum attracted flocks of crowds with his mummified Fiji Mermaid (which turned out to be a papier-mâché creation featuring a monkey's head and a fish's body), sailors around the world had already began manufacturing "mermaids".  Known as Jenny Hanivers, these creations were often sold to tourists and provided sailors with an additional source of income.  These mummified creatures were produced by drying, carving, and then varnishing the carcasses of fish belonging to the order rajiformes- a group of flattened cartilaginous fish related to the shark which includes stingrays and skates.  These preserved carcasses can be made to resemble mermaids, dragons, angels, demons, and other mythical creatures.

Jenny Hanivers became popular in the mid-16th century, when sailors around the Antwerp docks began selling the novelties to tourists.  This practice was so common  in the Belgian city that it may have influenced the name; it is widely believed …
