WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 14 2012

The strange tale of the Petraeus and Allen scandal continues to unfold.. the latest as we know it: There were thousands of emails sent .. An FBI agent is implicated because as he investigated he decided to send shirtless photos of himself to a woman at the center of the case.. High influence used perhaps? Reports indicate that Generals Petraeus and Allen got involved with a nasty child custody case.. .. Who is Jill Kelley? She is a woman at the center of intrigue and what we know so far is that she is a socialite.... Another issue at stake: Online privacy. Is there even a such thing?? .. And if that wasn't all just plain weird enough, get this: Paula Broadwell's license was found in DC's Rock Creek park, and no one is quite sure why (*The same park where Vince Foster was found dead and the bones of Chandra Levy were found).. At this point lawyers for Broadwell are not revealing where she is at. Her website was taken down.. and the mystery remains about her license found..

If you're head's not spinning from all the sex, scandal, and intrigue, you're ready for the rest of the news..

MONDAY NOVEMBER 12, 2012; VETERANS DAY OBSERVED







Tales of sex, scandals, and the CIA.. days after General Petreaus resigned over a sex scandal with Paula Broadwell and shocked the nation (but not Eric cantor) comes this new question: Did Petreaus' mistress reveal information on Benghazi?








This image shows a storm in Ireland--with a tale extending all the way down to the Caribbean! That is about 4,000 miles. ..



A new report says that the United States may become the biggest oil producing country in the world by 2017.. That is not too long from now. It begs the question: If we have waged wars for oil in the past, will someone wage a war for oil on us in the future?

The troubling post-Sandy landscape along the East Coast

Reports indicate that parts of New York City are descending into chaos in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.. And now these reports of looting and crimes are coupled with the already-known stories of people feeling trapped in shelters that were aimed at protecting them in the aftermath of the superstorm.. This article details "CAMP FEMA" and how people feel like it's more a concentration camp than a shelter..

These are very troubling articles.

With reports that for at least 300,000, power may not come on until Thanksgiving, these are very desperate times.

One more thing to note concerning Thanksgiving and the East Coast. Long range weather forecasts actually are beginning to pick up on the potential for ANOTHER Nor'Easter right around Thanksgiving timeframe. With what has happened so fast in the area and the fact some will not have power until that point, any storm right now is not good to see. Here's hoping it falls off the map and we have beautiful sunny skies with lots to be thankful for.

But weather and climate observe no holidays.

'SKYFALL' BECOMES THE BIGGEST BOND OPENING--EVER

POST-SANDY 'SHELTERS' BECOMING PRISON CAMPS FOR OCCUPANTS


Tent cities are fast becoming prison camps for victims of Hurricane Sandy. Muddy camps where people can see their breath. Security guards watching every door. No cigarettes, no books, no board games, no TVs, no radios.. nothing. Just pure misery.. For those who think that the story of Hurricane Sandy has been written and all is well, think again. There are tens of thousands of people who have no where to live. Their agony is only beginning. The battle of hope vs loss of all hope is taking place right now across the East Coast, and in tent cities that were supposed to be temporary shelters.. shelters that are turning into incredibly difficult place to find shelter from misery ..

The flooded city of Venice


Tourists take a swim in Venice.  Trouble is, where they are at is typically and filled with tourists.. The situation in Venice is troubling. 70% of the city is under water. High tides and heavy rain caused the massive flooding. Tourists are wearing highwaters instead of shorts. But the idea of people swimming in the water just for a photo op? Hope the sewage isn’t hitting into legs and feet beneath..

The RED CROSS is doing some damage control.. but calling their response to SUPERSTORM SANDY 'flawless' is an incredibly huge leap

Nothing is flawless.
And certainly the response had mistakes.
Did they do an impressive job given the circumstances? I suppose so. But it would depend on your ask, wouldn’t it..

THE GRAY HAIR MYTH?


The myth of the presidential grays? NBC NEWS reports something to the contrary of what Americans have always believed: That their presidents age faster than they do. Maybe it is just wishful thinking to assume that Commanders in Chief, with all the stresses of their daily duties, will get older quicker than others. But as NBC’s Bill Briggs writes, not really:  But, internally at least, presidents don’t age any faster than other Americans – and, in fact, historically surpass average U.S. lifespans, according to a study into whether commander in chief is, literally, is a killer job.  I read this story but will ignore it. I’d rather believe that the President ages faster than me. It just makes me feel better. And younger. Until I see my own grays in the mirror piling up, that is..

NEIGHBORHOOD DESTROYED BY EXPLOSION; CAUSE BEING INVESTIGATED


More than a dozen homes damaged.. hundreds of people forced into the streets. This image is chilling. And it’s the result of a neighborhood blast in the Richmond Hill subdivision of Indianapolis.  The scene looks like one from an end-times movie. But it’s real life.  The cause of the explosion still under investigation.  Natural gas is expected.  Wow…
