Thursday tales of Sochi and exorcisms.. and Father Mike signed the Ammons deal away to Hollywood.. All in a day's news


The winter Olympics, set for Sochi, are about to begin.. And with that comes polls from CNN of Americans expecting terror attacks.. violence.. Heartache and misery. Hopefully the world will come together and gold medals will be celebrated, national anthems will be played, and people will come and go in peace. But even if there is a peaceful games, the Olympics will not be without a share of weirdness..
Now that reporters are arriving in the city, they are tweeting and reporting some horrid conditions in hotels and polluted drinking water photos..
Rooms are missing things. Like light bulbs and shower curtains.
Water is yellow.
But condoms have been handed out.
Only the important things..
Also something about Sochi: Extreme poverty and horrid conditions. What troubles me is how so many are mocking the blight and plight in Sochi.. While it may be ‘beneath them’ it is a reality for the residents of Sochi…

Now onto the rest of the story..

No place for a gold medalist! Olympic visitors' horror at hotels awash with stray dogs, brown water, bugs and no light bulbs

Reports of a strange sleep epidemic in Brazil: The complaints relate symptoms such as weakness, malaise, fainting, partial memory loss, and in the worst cases, even hallucinations. All victims, simply, begin to feel an irresistible desire to sleep - and then, they just want to sleep.. This was the most bizarre quote from the report on the Brazil sleep disorders: "Hope Yakimova, residing in the village said: People are falling sleeping suddenly, anywhere. Sometimes, some of them, in the same moment, near one of other, standing or sitting. " It sounds like a creepy scene from a Stephen King book.. I agree with the DISINFO report, this could be mass hysteria..

Have you heard that "free bleeding" is a new feminist trend sweeping the nation, with blood covered legs? Websites, including the Modern Woman Digest,have written about the 'new trend' that started because of feminist bloggers. It seems people have a lack of understanding of the Internets, especially the power of 4Chan.. The fake 'trend' started on the 4Chan board, and become "news" somehow in the past few days.. 4Channers have also created a whole bunch of fake Twitter and Facebook accounts portraying the notion of free bleeding.. SO how long before a talk show host mentions it? How long before it's a top story on FOX NEWS? How long before 4Chan celebrates victory?

United Nations issues scathing report about the Vatican and Catholic Church.. The report accuses the Church of a systematic blackout concerning the molestation of children, claiming that tens of thousands of children have been raped by priests.. While the report should be judged on the merits, it's worth noting in my little black book that the United Nations never had to answer for their own issues, including children being subjected to rape and prostitution by United Nations peacekeepers in Haiti and Liberia..

This ruling from a federal judge is a big deal that affects everyone: Federal judge rules drivers allowed to flash headlights to warn of speed traps... (And don't tell me you never did it, although sometimes here in the woods and coal mines of Pennsylvania, you get flashed by others to warn you of a deer, or some sort of other animal or creature..) The ACLU is commending the court and a victory for motorists..

Now.. we should address flashing lights in cars as a gang initiation. That was true, wasn't it?

The Governor is going off the grid: Jesse Ventura is at an undisclosed location in Mexico, in order for drones to be unable to find him..He told CNBC: "I view the United States, today, much like East Berlin. And I’m off the grid. I’ve tried for 20 years to warn the country about the Democrats and Republicans, and nobody’s listening"

And just when you're about to roll your eyes at Jesse Ventura, and anyone else who worries of a police state building in the United States, read this WASHINGTON POST article about scenes from a police state in Iowa.. And it's from the WASHINGTON POST.. I will quote the first paragraph: "Watch this video, taken from a police raid in Des Moines, Iowa. Send it to some people. When critics (like me) warn about the dangers of police militarization, this is what we’re talking about. You’ll see the raid team, dressed in battle-dress uniforms, helmets and face-covering balaclava hoods take down the family’s door with a battering ram. You’ll see them storm the home with ballistics shields, guns at the ready. More troubling still, you’ll see not one but two officers attempt to prevent the family from having an independent record of the raid, one by destroying a surveillance camera, another by blocking another camera’s lens."..

This is when I begin to doubt a story.. The 'exorcism' tale offered by Latoya Ammons was frightening.. But then the house was purchased by Zak Bagans.. and now the priest, Michael Maginot, has signed a movie deal to bring the story to the big screen.. Maginot now has a contract with Evergreen Executive Chairman Tony DeRosa-Grund--if you saw the CONJURING you've seen his work.. Even more money: Maginot said he also signed a contract with Zak Bagans, host and executive producer of “Ghost Adventures” on the Travel Channel, to make a documentary.. At this point, Latoya has not gained a contract.. nor has the hospital staff or CPS workers who supposedly saw children walking up walls--staff and workers who have yet to come forward and speak publicly.. Maybe they are waiting for the right deal, too..?



Paging Paige: Done at the WWE


PWInsider reports that Paige was told at this past Monday’s RAW that she will not be able to return to the ring. It was noted that she is “done” as a wrestler, and that the situation is similar to Edge’s retirement in 2011 due to a neck injury…

Paige had just returned to WWE in late November after a seventeen month absence due to a neck injury she suffered in June of 2016. During her absence she suffered two Wellness policy suspensions.

Paige was injured during a house show at the Nassau Coliseum on Dec. 27 during a six-woman tag match. She was kicked in the back by Sasha Banks and struggled to get back to her feet after the bump.


The fake missile warning in Hawaii was scary for residents of that state .. 38 minutes of hell.

Scary for America more may be what ELIANA JOHNSON writes in POLITICO: A false warning of a missile threat in Hawaii sent White House aides scrambling Saturday, frantically phoning agencies to determine a response and triggering worries about their preparedness almost a year into the Trump administration. President Donald Trump’s Cabinet has yet to test formal plans for how to respond to a domestic missile attack, according to a senior administration official. John Kelly, while serving as Secretary of Homeland Security through last July, planned to conduct the exercise. But he left his post to become White House chief of staff before it was conducted, and acting secretary Elaine Duke never carried it out. The Old Cold War guard is gone. The newcomers can issue threats but appear to be unaware on how to act on them.. “The U.S. government hasn’t tested these plans in 30 years,” said the senior a…

There is water on Mars. There is not water on Mars. There is water on Mars.

A cross-section of underground ice is exposed at the steep slope that appears bright blue in this enhanced-color view from the HiRISE camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The scene is about 550 yards wide. The scarp drops about 140 yards from the level ground in the upper third of the image.Credits: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UA/USGS

This could be a game changer–and quite the about face since the past several months of news gathered have reinforced the notion that no water at all existed..

As reported in the journal Science (paywall), the water was found in both the north and south of Mars, at latitudes equivalent to South America and Scotland. The exposed areas were found on scarps as steep as 55 degrees. Based on the absence of craters in the regions, scientists believe that the features formed relatively recently.

“The discovery reported today gives us surprising windows where we can see right into these thick underground sheets of ice,” study co-author Shane Byrne of the University of…

FCC won’t let Trump’s shithole be

The FCC received complaints after NBC and CNN used the word “s—hole” in their coverage of the controversy over comments President Donald Trump reportedly made to lawmakers during a meeting about immigration.

An FCC spokesman said they received a “handful” of comments, but did not have an exact figure yet. The agency does not monitor programming, but reviews each complaint to decide whether to take any type of action.

CNN featured the term on its chyron, and it was also repeated on air multiple times. But the FCC’s jurisdiction over indecency and profanity does not cover cable and satellite programming.x

The word was used once on “NBC Nightly News,” but anchor Lester Holt issued a viewer warning in advance. CBS and ABC chose not to use the word.

The FCC considers a number of factors in whether to act on a complaint, including “context,” and that in the past has included whether it has been a part of news programming. Broadcasters are confident that they would be exempt for using the term i…



Not only that, but warnings buzzed on TVs.. radios.. the horrid screeching noise when an emergency alert sounds.. 

CNN reports,

Jocelyn Azbell had just woken up in her Maui hotel Saturday when she was hurried into the hotel's basement to take shelter from an incoming ballistic missile.
"You're thinking, 'Oh my gosh, are we going to die? Is it really a missile (headed) our way, or is it just a test?'" the 24-year-old told CNN. "We really didn't know."
Minutes before, she'd received an ominous alert on her phone.

Azbell, her boyfriend and hundreds of other hotel guests were "herded like cows" into the basement by staff. "People are crying and people obviously were super scared," she said.
For 20 minutes, Azbell said, they waited. Finally, they were told that the alert was a false ala…


The worst flu since the early 2000s strikes he entire continental United States is experiencing widespread flu right now, the first time in the 13 years of the current tracking system that that has happened, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Officials said that this flu season is shaping up to be one of the worst in recent years. The rate of flu hospitalizations — the number of people hospitalized with flu per 100,000 — nearly doubled last week compared with the previous week. Last week it was 22.7 per 100,000 people; the week before that rate was 13.7. IT IS SO BAD..
THE KIDS ARE BANNED FROM GOING TO THE HOSPITAL!! All of that prompted metro Detroit's Beaumont hospital chain to take an unusual step Friday afternoon: banning visits from children under 13 until the flu season subsides. “We apologize for the inconvenience,” said a news release from Beaumont Health System, which operates eight major hospitals in southeast Michigan. “All Beaumont Health hospita…
