Severe Weather Outbreak, Including a Tornado Threat, Begins Thursday In the Ohio Valley, Southeast

With a major pattern shift in the works bringing warmer weather to the central and eastern U.S., an outbreak of severe thunderstorms is now looming starting Thursday – even in areas that still have snow on the ground now. A very strong low-pressure system will bring a large area of very strong winds just above the ground beginning Wednesday night over the central U.S., spreading east on Thursday. The system will also pull warm, moist, unstable air north from the Gulf of Mexico. These elements will set the stage for an outbreak of severe thunderstorms. A few strong thunderstorms may begin flaring up as soon as late Wednesday night over parts of Kansas and Missouri. The bigger threat develops Thursday and continues into Thursday evening in the Ohio Valley, mid to lower Mississippi Valley, and the western Gulf Coast states. The main threat will be damaging winds. However, a few tornadoes will be possible, both embedded within the squall line of severe storms, as well as in any discrete cells that can form ahead of the line, particularly Thursday afternoon and evening from southern Indiana to northern Mississippi and northern Alabama. More

ALERT: CDC Warns H1N1 virus reaches epidemic levels in the US

Six weeks into the flu season, the H1N1 virus is still killing young adults and middle-aged Americans at epidemic levels, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Although the death toll isn’t nearly as bad as the 2009 influenza epidemic that swept across the United States, that same H1N1 virus has seen a resurgence this year, infecting more than 6,600 Americans since October and resulting in deaths beyond epidemic levels since mid- January. The CDC’s weekly flu report found that during the week ending February 8, influenza was responsible for 8.4 percent of all deaths in the 122 cities that report such statistics. In order to be considered an epidemic, influenza-and pneumonia-related fatalities must top 7.3 percent of all fatalities. Considering that not every city reports on this data, the death rate could be even higher than it already is. Notably, this flu season has diverged from typical trends. While those over 65 years of age are still the most likely to be hospitalized, the H1N1 virus has the ability to disproportionally affect young and middle aged adults when compared to other strains. The CDC’s numbers pin 60 percent of all hospitalizations among those between 18 and 64 years of age. More

Blast 20 times taller than Earth erupts from sun

It’s freezing in North America — but things are heating up on the sun. A huge magnetic filament shot out of the sun Monday, sending shockwaves racing at 1.7 million miles per hour and a brief roar of static through shortwave radios across the planet. And with a geomagnetic storm causing Northern Lights to dance across the Canadian border and into North America, the sun is clearly acting up. According to a report on, Monday’s massive blast shot off the sun and into space, away from our planet, so it didn’t have the same effect on radio signals, power grids and communication satellites that an Earth-facing eruption would have. But it did cause a Type II radio burst, the site noted. “The explosion sent shock waves rippling through the sun’s atmosphere,” the site noted. “Those shock waves, in turn, triggered plasma instabilities in the solar corona that emit strong radio emissions. The static-y ‘roar’ of the explosion was picked up by solar observatories and ham radio stations across the dayside of our planet.”More

A Kansas lawmaker is raising eyebrows after she proposed a bill to allow parents, teachers and caregivers to spank children hard enough to leave redness or bruising. Rep. Gail Finney, a Democrat from Wichita, says the bill is meant to restore parental rights and improve discipline among the state’s children. KCTV reports Finney was introduced to the idea by McPherson Deputy County Attorney Britt Colle, who told the station the bill makes it clear hitting a child with a fist, with a belt or in the head or body is still banned. ”This bill basically defines a spanking along with necessary reasonable physical restraint that goes with discipline, all of which has always been legal,” Colle said. “This bill clarifies what parents can and cannot do. By defining what is legal, it also defines what is not.” More

Hot Pockets recalled, may contain “diseased and unsound animals”

Nestlé is recalling certain varieties of Hot Pockets after learning they’ve potentially been stuffed with “diseased and unsound animals.” The company is voluntarily pulling the product from the shelves as part of a massive USDA recall of 8.7 million pounds of meat processed by Rancho Feeding Corp. The meat in question, per the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is “unsound, unwholesome or otherwise are unfit for human food and must be removed from commerce.” According to Nestlé, a “small quantity” of that meat may have made its way into the Hot Pockets produced at its California facility. The affected products are Hot Pockets brand Philly Steak and Cheese in three different pack sizes, and Hot Pockets brand Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese in the two-pack box (more details on the specific batch numbers here). Other flavors — Ham & Cheese, Meatballs & Mozzarella, Bacon Cheddar Cheese Melt, etc. — are safe. More

New terror compound found in heart of Texas

Declassified FBI documents confirm the existence of an Islamic jihadist enclave in Texas that is part of a network in the U.S. identified by the Department of Homeland Security as a terrorist organization.  The enclave belongs to the network of Muslims of the Americas, which is linked to the Pakistani-based militant group Jamaat al-Fuqra, according to an investigation by the Clarion Project and ACT! For America Houston. Jamaat al-Fuqra was founded in New York in 1980 by Sheik Mubarak Ali Gilani, an Islamic cleric in Pakistan who at one time was in Pakistani custody in connection with the abduction of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. Muslims of the Americas says it has a network of 22 “villages” around the U.S., with headquarters at an encampment in the Catskill Mountains near Hancock, N.Y., called Holy Islamberg, as WND reported in 2006. An investigative report at the time found neighbors of Islamberg were deeply concerned about military-style training taking place there and frustrated by an apparent lack of attention from federal authorities. WND also reported in 2006 that Jamaat al-Fuqra has collaborated with major terrorist organizations, including Hezbollah and al-Qaida. More


J.C. Penney Employee Shares Devastating Photos Of The Iconic Department Store’s Demise

J.C. Penney, once a powerhouse department store chain that anchored shopping malls across America, has fallen into a state of decay. The retailer’s stores aren’t up to par, despite broad changes in recent months under new chief executive Mike Ullman, according to a 17-year veteran employee who spoke on condition he not be named for fear of retaliation by his employer. The J.C. Penney employee shared a collection of photos with The Huffington Post, snapped in store visits around the nation, that reveal the deterioration of the once-mighty retail giant as it seeks to regain its former glory. The images are defined by disorganized displays, broken signs, empty shelves and messy departments. ”What you’ll see is that the J.C. Penney brand is going down the hill big time,” the employee said. “Racks are messy, visual presentation is non-existent and [former CEO] Ron Johnson’s ‘shops’ are not being kept up or filled with merchandise. It’s sad to see the brand devalued.” More

Fourth Georgia hospital closes due to Obamacare payment cuts.

The fourth Georgia hospital in two years is closing its doors due to severe financial difficulties caused by Obamacare’s payment cuts for emergency services. The Lower Oconee Community Hospital is, for now, a critical access hospital in southeastern Georgia that holds 25 beds. The hospital is suffering from serious cash-flow problems, largely due to the area’s 23 percent uninsured population, and hopes to reopen as “some kind of urgent care center,” CEO Karen O’Neal said. Many hospitals in the 25 states that rejected the Medicaid expansion are facing similar financial problems. Liberal administration ally Think Progress has already faulted Georgia for not expanding Medicaid as Obamacare envisioned. But the reality is more complicated. The federal government has historically made payments to hospitals to cover the cost of uninsured patients seeking free medical care in emergency rooms, as federal law mandates that hospitals must care for all patients regardless of their ability to pay. More


TD Jakes Sues Alleged Dangerous Stalker Who Is Ex-Church Member

A former member of the Potter’s House church in Dallas has allegedly been stalking its pastor, Bishop T.D. Jakes, for the last three years. A judge extended a temporary restraining order until next Monday. Jakes sued Karleisha Tarver last month, and a court hearing Monday will determine whether a temporary injunction should be issued, ordering her to stay away from the pastor, reports the Star-Telegram. The restraining order says Tarver cannot come within 500 feet of the pastor, his family and employees. “I would love to comment, but I can’t because this case is pending,” says Jakes’ attorney, Faith Johnson, the Star-Telegram reports. According to court documents, Tarver could take actions that “may ultimately lead to the death of one of the plaintiffs, their family, their friends, church attendees and/or staff.” Judge Susan McCoy also issued a bench warrant for Tarver, who was arrested Jan. 26 and accused of criminal trespass when she reportedly tried to attend the church’s services. According to the lawsuit, the harassment began in March 2011, when Tarver walked up to the front door of Jakes’ home. She was escorted away from the property by security officers. More


DAYS OF LOT – Poll Reveals NFL Players Are Mostly Ready To Accept Openly Gay Teammate

Any anonymous executives, scouts and coaches who have claimed professional football locker rooms aren’t ready for an openly gay player may need to find some new scapegoats before the 2014 NFL Draft. According to a poll of current NFL players conducted by’s NFL Nation and ESPN The Magazine, 44 of 51 players surveyed — and granted anonymity — said a teammate’s sexual orientation does not matter to them. The readiness of the NFL to accept an openly gay player has been a hot topic of conversation since former Missouri defensive lineman Michael Sam, named a first-team All-American after the 2013 season, publicly came out earlier this month. In interviews with The New York Times and ESPN, the 24-year-old NFL prospect revealed that his teammates knew throughout their 12-2 season.More

Disney’s ‘Frozen’ Slammed By Mormon Grandmother For ‘Gay Agenda To Normalize Homosexuality’

DAYS OF LOT –  ”Frozen” has been charming critics and audiences all winter, but one conservative grandmother was less than taken by the Disney animated feature, which has grossed a reported $378.3 million domestically. Kathryn Skaggs, author of the “A Well-Behaved Mormon Woman” blog, has penned a lengthy post blasting “Frozen” for what she described as the movie’s “gay agenda to normalize homosexuality.” Exactly what about the smash film rankled Skaggs (who claims to have seen, and enjoyed, “Frozen” three times with her grandchildren) remains a mystery. Still, she points to the countless tribute and parody versions of the movie’s Academy Award-nominated theme song, “Let It Go,” and writes: I could blatantly see that the homosexual agenda, to normalize the practice, was not simply an underlying message in the movie “Frozen,” but is the actual story. The process of normalizing homosexual behavior in society is going to require more than the liberal media saying it is so — which they do all the time — or activist judges legalizing same-sex marriage in one state after another. It’s going to require the indoctrination of our children, in order to lead the their generation to the next, necessary, level of mainstream social acceptance. More

Justice Group Warns of Obama Plan to Put Government Monitors in Newsrooms

The American Center for Law and Justice is warning of an Obama administration plan to place government monitors in newsrooms via an FCC proposal that could turn every major news network and newspaper into little more than a state media mouthpiece.  FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai recently lifted the lid on a shocking White House proposal entitled ‘Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs’ that would dispatch researchers from the federal agency “to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run.” According to Pai, the program is about “pressuring media organizations into covering certain stories.” In other words – the fairness doctrine on steroids. “That’s right, the Obama Administration has developed a formula of what it believes the free press should cover, and it is going to send government monitors into newsrooms across America to stand over the shoulders of the press as they make editorial decisions,” writes the ACLJ’s Matthew Clark, noting that the plan would also extend to newspapers, which the FCC doesn’t even have any business being involved with.More

Prominent Theologian Will Face Off Against Atheist Physicist in Debate Over God and Cosmology

face-off-620x239Move over Bill Nye and Ken Ham. There’s a new public debate over cosmology and God’s role in the universe — and it’s set to unfold this weekend between atheist physicist Sean Carroll and theologian William Lane Craig. The debate, titled “God and Cosmology: The Existence of God in Light of Modern Cosmology,” will be a two-day symposium, featuring numerous speakers. While the first day of the event will be led by Carroll and Craig, a separate debate and discussion on the second day of the conference will feature four additional presenters who will also address complex philosophical and theological issues, according to a press release. Philosophers Tim Maudlin and Alex Rosenberg will argue in favor of Carroll’s side of the debate and Craig’s case will be touted by philosopher Robin Collins and physicist James Sinclair. More

Denmark says ‘animal rights come before religion’

Denmark’s government has brought in a ban on the religious slaughter of animals for the production of halal and kosher meat, after years of campaigning from welfare activists. The change to the law, announced last week and effective as of yesterday, has been called “anti-Semitism” by Jewish leaders and “a clear interference in religious freedom” by the non-profit group Danish Halal. European regulations require animals to be stunned before they are slaughtered, but grants exemptions on religious grounds. For meat to be considered kosher under Jewish law or halal under Islamic law, the animal must be conscious when killed. Yet defending his government’s decision to remove this exemption, the minister for agriculture and food Dan Jørgensen told Denmark’s TV2 that “animal rights come before religion”. Commenting on the change, Israel’s deputy minister of religious services Rabbi Eli Ben Dahan told the Jewish Daily Forward: “European anti-Semitism is showing its true colours across Europe, and is even intensifying in the government institutions.” More

People Are Undergoing Extreme Body Modifications In Order To Look More Like The Devil?

article-2039985-0E0389CF00000578-306_636x451When does body modification go too far?  In recent years, the popularity of tattoos and body piercings has soared, but now there are thousands of people around the globe that are taking body modification to ridiculous extremes. For example, would you be willing to have your tongue split in two so that you could have a forked tongue?  What about getting eyeball tattoos or having titanium horns implanted in your head?  To most people, doing such things would be unimaginable, but there is a growing subculture of individuals out there that truly seem to enjoy “pushing the envelope” and seeing what is possible.  Some of them want to look like cats, some want to look like vampires, others want to look like aliens and some even want to look like the devil.  Yes, you read that correctly.  You are about to read about one man that is purposely modifying his body so that he will look as much like the devil as possible.  In fact, he even plans to add a tail someday. More


Craigslist Killer: ‘I Stopped Counting’ After My First 22 Murders in Satanic Cult

SUNBURY, Pa. – A woman in Pennsylvania who has been charged with murder for killing  a man she met on Craigslist has told reporters that she has committed over 20 murders as part of a satanic cult. “When I hit 22 [murders], I stopped counting,” 19-year-old Miranda Barbour told the Daily Item on Saturday. Barbour said that she was introduced into satanism at the age of 13, the same year that she had her first experience with murder. She explained that she accompanied the leader of the satanist group at that time as he went to confront a man that owed him money. After he shot the man, he turned to Barbour. “Then he said to me that it was my turn to shoot him,” she outlined to the publication. “I hate guns. I don’t use guns. I couldn’t do it, so he came behind me and he took his hands and put them on top of mine and we pulled the trigger. And then from there I just continued to kill.” More


Does The Trail Of Dead Bankers Lead Somewhere?

What are we to make of this sudden rash of banker suicides?  Does this trail of dead bankers lead somewhere?  Or could it be just a coincidence that so many bankers have died in such close proximity?  I will be perfectly honest and admit that I do not know what is going on.  But there are some common themes that seem to link at least some of these deaths together.  First of all, most of these men were in good health and in their prime working years.  Secondly, most of these “suicides” seem to have come out of nowhere and were a total surprise to their families.  Thirdly, three of the dead bankers worked for JP Morgan.  Fourthly, several of these individuals were either involved in foreign exchange trading or the trading of derivatives in some way.  So when “a foreign exchange trader” jumped to his death from the top of JP Morgan’s Hong Kong headquarters this morning, that definitely raised my eyebrows.  These dead bankers are starting to pile up, and something definitely stinks about this whole thing. More

Iran Guards commander gives nuclear talks warning

Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guards on Wednesday warned against crossing “red lines” in negotiations with world powers aimed at reaching a lasting agreement over Tehran’s nuclear programme. The warning came as Iranian negotiators took part in the second day of talks in Vienna, where they are seeking a framework for negotiations to reach an accord that would also allow Iran to maintain civilian nuclear activities. ”The red lines of the establishment must be preserved in the negotiations so that the national pride is not damaged,” said hardline Guards commander General Mohammad Ali Jafari, ISNA news agency reported. He did not elaborate on what the limits might be. Iranian officials have previously laid down “red lines” on the talks, saying they would not negotiate several issues, including the dismantling of nuclear facilities and reductions in the number of centrifuges at enrichment sites. More

As Syria threat expands, Obama mulls options

For the United States, Syria’s civil war is threatening to start hitting closer to home. Peace talks between the Syrian government and opposition are faltering. President Bashar Assad’s military is on the offensive and the rebels are in disarray. Most distressing to the Obama administration, U.S. officials say al-Qaida-linked militants are squeezing moderates out of the insurgency and carving out havens for potential terrorist plots against the United States. The accelerating U.S. national security threat is leading the administration to take a fresh look at previously shelved ideas, including more robust assistance to Western-backed rebels. They are also are looking at newer, more far-reaching options, including drone strikes on extremists and more forceful action against Assad, whom President Barack Obama told to leave power 30 months ago. Obama’s top aides plan to meet at the White House before week’s end to examine options, according to administration officials. They weren’t authorized to talk publicly on the matter and spoke only on condition of anonymity. More

CHAOS IN UKRAINE – Police storm main Kiev ‘Maidan’ protest camp

Police are storming the main protest camp in Ukraine’s capital, Kiev, which has been occupied since November. Explosions are taking place, fireworks are being thrown and large fires have broken out in Independence Square. On Tuesday at least 18 people were killed, including seven policemen, in the worst violence seen in weeks. President Viktor Yanukovych blamed the violence on opposition leaders, but said it was still “not too late to stop the conflict”. He was speaking after a late-night meeting with opposition figures Vitaly Klitschko and Arseniy Yatsenyuk. Mr Klitschko, who leads the Udar (Punch) party, told Ukraine’s Hromadske TV that the president had given the protesters only one option, leave the Maidan and go home. More

Military’s “Iron Man” suit may be ready to test this summer

The first prototypes of a high-tech suit of armor to give soldiers superhuman abilities could be ready to test this summer, according to top military officials. The suits, which have drawn comparisons to the one worn by Marvel Comics superhero “Iron Man,” could be delivered to special operations forces as early as June. The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit, or TALOS, is being developed by engineers at MIT; the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM); and researchers at other businesses and academic institutions. Prototypes of the suit, which is designed to provide protection from bullets and is equipped with a variety of sensors and cameras, are being assembled and could be ready for the military to test in June, reported The TALOS technology will be rigorously tested, and military personnel hope to have operational systems in the field by August 2018, according to Navy Adm. William McRaven, head of the U.S. Special Operations Command. More

Homeland Security is seeking a national license plate tracking system

The Department of Homeland Security wants a private company to provide a national license-plate tracking system that would give the agency access to vast amounts of information from commercial and law enforcement tag readers, according to a government proposal that does not specify what privacy safeguards would be put in place. The national license-plate recognition database service, which would draw data from readers that scan the tag of every vehicle crossing their paths, would help catch fugitive illegal immigrants, according to a DHS solicitation. But the database could easily contain more than 1 billion records and may be shared with other law enforcement agencies, raising concerns that the movements of ordinary citizens who are under no criminal suspicion could be scrutinized. A spokeswoman for DHS’s Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) stressed that the database “could only be accessed in conjunction with ongoing criminal investigations or to locate wanted individuals.” The database would enhance agents’ and officers’ ability to locate suspects who could pose a threat to public safety and would reduce the time required to conduct surveillance, ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen said. More

Japan secretly developing nuclear weapons

The Hong Kong-based Yazhou Zhoukan reports that Japan is secretly developing a nuclear weapons program in anticipation of a potential crisis over the Diaoyutai (Diaoyu or Senkaku) islands in the East China Sea. Japan is currently the only nation in the world which has a complete nuclear industry. Mitsubishi, Hitachi and Toshiba are the three largest Japanese companies which produce nuclear energy. Under those three corporations, there are an additional 200 smaller firms which possess nuclear fuel or who have the know-how to handle plutonium. For this reason, Yazhou Zhoukan said Japan has the ability to build its own nuclear bomb if it were to revise its postwar peace constitution. Japan holds a total of 40.7 tonnes of plutonium, including 5.5 tonnes in Japan, 21.6 tonnes in France and 13.6 tonnes in the United Kingdom. The country also accumulates about 3,000 tonnes of nuclear waste in its six disposal facilities located in Aomori prefecture, which surpasses the figure for the United States. Major General Yoshiaki Yano of the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force said in an article written for Japan Military Review magazine that Tokyo should adjust its nuclear policy despite the damage this might do to its relationship with Washington. With the capability to build at least 2,000 nuclear warheads, Japan has recently demanded the United States return 300 kilograms of plutonium. A Japanese military analyst told Yazhou Zhoukan that Washington has paid close attention to the potential development of nuclear weapons in Japan. More

Bibles decried as ‘religious propaganda,’ banned from Iowa State University hotel

Administrators at a hotel run by Iowa State University have given the boot to Bibles in their guest rooms after protest from a religious separatist group. The push to remove the books began when a guest at the Hotel Memorial Union complained to Freedom From Religion Foundation about the “unwelcome religious propaganda in the bedside table,” according to a local NBC News affiliate. The foundation, a nonprofit which advocates the separation of church and state, said the hotel is part of the Iowa public university system and, as such, cannot legally place the Bibles in the room. Doing so, the group argued, would constitute a support of one religion over another. More

Whistle-blower fired from Hanford nuclear site

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Whistle-blower Donna Busche, who raised safety concerns at the nation’s most polluted nuclear weapons production site, was fired Tuesday from her job at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation. Busche’s complaints are part of a string of whistle-blower and other claims related to the design and safety of an unfinished waste treatment plant at Hanford. Busche, 50, said she was called into the office Tuesday morning and told she was being fired for cause. ”I turned in my key and turned in my badge and left the building,” Busche told the Associated Press in a telephone interview from Richland. Busche worked for URS Corp., which is helping build a $12 billion plant to turn Hanford’s most dangerous wastes into glass. Construction of the plant has been halted over safety concerns. Busche has filed complaints with the federal government, alleging she has suffered retaliation since filing her original safety complaint in 2011. More

DAYS OF LOT – Gay Baptist minister sues for right to wed

A Kentucky Baptist minister and gay-rights activist filed a lawsuit Feb. 14 claiming the state’s ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional. Maurice “Bojangles” Blanchard — who with his partner, Dominique James, was fined 1 cent for trespassing in November for refusing to leave a county clerk’s office after being told they could not apply for a marriage license — asked U.S. District Judge John Heyburn to build on his finding two days earlier that Kentucky must recognize same-sex unions performed legally in other states. Blanchard leads the True Colors Ministry, founded in 2011 at Highland Baptist Church in Louisville, Ky., as an outreach ministry to members of the LGBTQ community. He and James and another couple denied marriage licenses by the county clerk in Louisville claim denying them rights available to others violates the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which says that no citizen can be denied equal protection under the law. More


Vatican Pushing for Control of Mount Zion

Christian leaders reportedly pressured Israel to turn over control of Mount Zion in Jerusalem during a clandestine meeting of senior city officials. The meeting took place Tuesday in the office of Attorney Amnon Merhav, the director-general of the Jerusalem municipality. It was attended by officials from the Prime Minister’s Office, President’s Office, Tourism Ministry, Police, Kotel Rabbi’s Office, and more. During the meeting, representatives of Christian groups in the capital pushed Jerusalem leaders to give the Catholic Church control over the Mount Zion area that includes the “Hall of the Last Supper.” There have been reports that Israel’s government is planning to turn the building in question over to the Vatican prior to the Pope’s expected visit in May. Pope Francis is expected to visit Israel and to lead a service in the Hall of the Last Supper. More
