Did you ever think you’d be rooting for Newt?

For all of the controversy over the controversial politician, Newt Gingrich has been one of the few people to come forward and address something no one else will: The fact that we need to survive the eventual solar storm or EMP strike that may cripple the infrastructure of the United States.. 
Newt and his panel of people (maybe a lot of rabid neo-cons, and perhaps I am just blinded by the sunlight on the headline here) are upset that there is little happening to protect the US from the eventual.. the fact that nine out of ten Americans could face sudden death..
I do get it, though.. this group seems to be most concerned about man-made terrorism.. the fear, the fiendishness.. all of that ..and yes, the big ‘uumph’ seems to be planting seeds of Armageddon fear that a EMP or nuclear attack from North Korea will kill us all. But.. maybe it could.
And if those manmade evils aren’t bad enough, what if the sun blurts out the ‘big one’? (The big one from the sun is something I have written about for years on this site, should you have been someone paying any attention) …
We all know this. The grid is riddled with failure-potentials.

There is something strange afoot in the city of Seattle Washington -- a butterfly effect is causing strange emotions from people who are finding origami butterflies throughout public locations.. when the papers are unfolded, ominous messages appear..

From a local report:
"Origami butterflies with ominous messages have been found all around Seattle.The colorful creations look cheerful at first, but when unfolded, the phrase “you are not safe,” is revealed. A date is printed along with the message: 9-28-17.Even more puzzling are the illustrations, which include Russell Wilson, Kurt Cobain, the Starbucks siren, and a peace message. One of the notes features the Seattle skyline without its famous Space Needle landmark.A website is listed on some of the papers: On it, a scramble of letters merge together to form the statement, "You Are Not Safe” while Wagner's "Das Rheingold" plays. Then, a psychedelic goat appears behind the vaguely threateni…


Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.
