Of massacres and mom jeans

I listened to Clyde Lewis last night.. He titled his show "Foreign Horrorspondence" and focused on the newest world crisis in Crimea, Ukraine, and Russia. As usual, it wasn't the typical approach you'd find from other sources.. Lewis detailed some old Nostradamus quatrains about the 'ring of steel' and the new world war coming after the games of slaughter. Lewis believed the games of slaughter were the 2008 Olympics--they began the same day that Russia invaded Georgia--and thinks we are heading towards a new world slaughter because of recent actions. While it wasn't anything to do with ghosts and goblins, there show shook me.

I have always had a special place in my heart for Nostradamus, even though I believe much of the whole 'prophecy' business to be mostly nonsense. But something about a radio show host like Lewis bringing all of these strange facts together compels me to start believing..

If you haven't noticed lately, it's been feeling like 'war' for a while now across this planet.

And we begin there today..

Vladimir Putin is calling the actions in Ukraine a 'coup' ..

The nation of Ukraine is filled with a vast amount of religious people. In Crimea, one of those, a bishop, is urging calm. However, a Ukrainian Catholic leader says people must be ready to sacrifice lives..

While the nation of Russia is basically ignoring anything coming from the Obama Administration, the White House and the US continue to look at a 'broad range of sanctions' against Russia.. That may be difficult since the European Union relies heavily on natural gas coming from Russia. This could be the straw that breaks the camel's back of the world economy. Some actually believe that, due to the crisis in Ukraine, a world economic crisis is brewing..
Russia and China are happily joining hands on the matter--which is bad news for the United States..

Timing is key, on all events.. including Crimea. While the world watches turmoil and conflict, the earth wanted to be heard, too. Either HAARP is operational again or natural events led to this, but Crimea had a 4.1 earthquake yesterday..

While Sarah Palin may not be the world's finest expert on Russian affairs--thought she could see Russia from her house--she did have this snappy one liner about how the Obama Administration is dealing with Pootie Poot: " People are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil. They look at our president as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates"

Perhaps the new faced-shiny Sarah is talking about this now famous photo released by the White House of Obama 'calling' Putin over the weekend:

Along with Palin, Twitter has unleashed some of the more humorous quips about Obama's 'mom jeans' phone threat..



STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..

Before discussion.. take a glance:

My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…


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.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …
