The new gun allows its owner to “carry with confidence, conceal in style,” the Minnesota startup’s website reads. The product could be seen on the site with an unfolding handle revealing a trigger and muzzles for the bullets where headphones would usually plug in.
“That’s where Ideal Conceal comes in, smart phones are EVERYWHERE, so your new pistol will easily blend in with today’s environment. In its locked position it will be virtually undetectable because it hides in plain sight.”
Will we not have cops drawing their weapons when someone pull out a smart phone to “shoot” a video of them? The implications are staggering!
Ideal Conceal CEO Kirk Kjellberg told the us that the lightweight invention aids gun owners hoping to avoid a Second Amendment debate.
“Part of what this allows people to do is carry a weapon without engaging in that conversation,” Kjellberg said. “This way, you don’t have to have a .38 or .44 strapped to your waist, you can carry it in your front pocket.
The smart phone shaped gun can hold two bullets. It cannot be fired while in the closed position.
CEO Kirk Kjellberg tells NBC affiliate he got the idea for the gun at a restaurant, after getting his permit to carry — and quickly realizing he’d like to be more concealed.
“This little kid says, ‘Mommy, Mommy, that man’s got a gun,’ so the whole restaurant looks at you like you’re about to shoot the place up,” Kjellberg said. “So I thought to myself there’s got to be another way to be able to carry without bothering other people.”
The company tells us the gun will cost $395 when it goes on sale later this year. Kjellberg says he’s already received 2,500 emails from people who want to buy one.
Critics of the gun argue that a regular smart phone is already much more useful, and that there are already several apps if one wants a pocket-friendly means of killing.
As you can clearly see in this slow motion video, Mr. Lewandowski had been separated from Mr. Trump and was trying to get back to his position when Ms. Fields stepped into his path, blocking him. He simply tried to move her aside instead of knocking her down. Nothing happened with intent, she was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Unless you are a liberal, looking to press a campaign smear!
Watch the slow motion version of the video…
If that is battery then you better start arresting Walmart shoppers on a regular basis! This is nothing but a trumped-up charge driven by political bias. A simple grab will get you a simple charge in Florida, if the law is on the side of the wrong people!
This newly released video makes it pathetically obvious. In it you can see that, contrary to her story, he did NOT come from behind and “throw her down!” She didn’t even wince when the alleged assault happened. In fact she looked at him as he touched her and when she realized who it was, grinned before she caught herself! Another target for false allegations as she is well known for!
And another video has now been released showing Fields being told by Secret Service to leave the area beforehand. She hangs back for a bit, then blatantly crosses the previously forbidden line to gain access to Trump. This is the video that got the case dismissed in court.
Lewandowski was charged with grabbing and bruising the arm (lower forearm) of Michelle Fields, a former reporter at Breitbart, during a campaign event on March 8th.
Testimony from the Secret Service has now verified that she was warned twice (“She crossed in between agents and our protectee after being told not to do so,”) not to touch Trump, and that her upper are was the part that was grabbed, not down by her wrist, as the that she published claimed.
By the way if you look at previous photos of her in the media you will see VERY obvious moles that has mysteriously appeared the “evidence” photo.
After examining the evidence, Jupiter, Florida, police determined that probable cause existed to charge Corey Lewandowski, who has served as Trump’s top political aide for his entire presidential run. Police on Tuesday morning issued Lewandowski a notice to appear before a judge on May 4 for the charge, which carries up to a year in jail.
The investigating officer described the investigation of the incident:
“On March 12, 2016, I obtained video footage from Trump Security at Trump National in Jupiter. I specifically obtained vide from the ballroom the night and time in question. The video parallels what Fields told me, in that Trump was walking towards the exit of the ballroom, taking questions, and signing autographs. Fields is seen on video, holding her phone up to Trump, appearing to ask him a question. Trump had looked in her direction and then Lewandowski extended his left arm out, stepping between Trump and another male subject believed to be U.S. Secret Service. After extending his arm out, Lewandowski appeared to reach for Field’s left arm with his left hand, allowing him to get closer to Fields.
Lewandowski then grabbed Fields left arm with his right hand, causing her to turn and step back. This motion cleared a path for Lewandowski to past Fields, allowing him to “catch up” and get closer to Trump, who was walking during this entire incident.
Based on the above-described investigation, probably cause exists to charge Corey Lewandowski, DOB 9/18/1973, with (1) count of simple battery in that he did intentionally touch Michelle Fields, DOB 01/10/1988, against the will of Michelle Fields.”
Yes, he did move her aside to keep from knocking her down when she stepped directly in his path! The was no time frame for her to “object” to qualify it as against her will!
Did I mention that the Jupiter Police Chief is a staunch, Democrat, Hillary supporter?
Donald Trump and his campaign issued a statement on Tuesday:
“Mr. Lewandowski is absolutely innocent of this charge. He will enter a plea of not guilty and looks forward to his day in court. He is completely confident that he will be exonerated.”
It’s one of the biggest decisions any band will face: what to call themselves. And yet, so many get it so wrong. Fortunately, for every group that comes up with a terrible name and sticks with it, there’s a band that comes up with a terrible name, plays a few shows under it, maybe releases a demo or even an album or two but then finally comes to its senses. Many well-known and successful groups – from Creedence Clearwater Revival to Green Day – have been through the latter growing pains, starting out life cursed with a misguided moniker before landing on a name destined to adorn the T-shirts of millions of devoted fans. The name makes the band, as they say; here are 25 bands that almost didn’t get made.
Paul Simon and Arthur Garfunkel were just 15 years old when they started shopping their songs around the Brill Building in 1956. Realizing they didn’t have the most marketable names in the world, Paul became John Landis (after a girl he had a crush on, Sue Landis) and Arthur became Tom Graph, because he loved to graph the progress of hit records on graph paper (really). They called themselves Tom and Jerry (apparently fearing no lawsuit from Hanna-Barbera) and actually scored a minor hit with “Hey Schoolgirl,” which they played on American Bandstand directly after Jerry Lee Lewis did “Great Balls of Fire.” (Sadly, no video survives.) They failed to land a follow-up hit and soon focused on college, and by the time the duo reconvened in 1964 as a folk act they decided to use their real names, even though they risked alienating segments of the country that weren’t amenable to openly Jewish entertainers. “Our name is honest,” Simon said. “I always felt it was a big shock to people when Bob Dylan turned out to be Bobby Zimmerman. It was important that he should be true.”
The Roots originated when Questlove (Ahmir Khalib Thompson) and Black Thought (Tariq Trotter) were high school classmates in Philly. They called themselves Radio Activity for a school talent show in 1989, which became Black to the Future, then the nerdiest of the handles yet, the Square Roots. Black Thought explains why on the song “Anti-circle”: “Yo, I’m tha anti-circle. . . Never comin’ twice in one form. . . so hip that I’m square.” True to the lyrics, the band didn’t come twice in that form once they discovered that there was already a Philadelphia folk group by the name, instead shortening their moniker to the less mathematical the Roots.
In October of 1990 a new band from Seattle played their first concert at the Off Ramp under the name Mookie Blaylock, a New Jersey Nets player whose basketball card wound up in the tape case of one of their early demos. “It was kind of goofy,” admitted Eddie Vedder. “But that first week we were too busy working on songs to think about a name.” This was fine for a completely unknown local band, but when they started to attract national attention and record an album they couldn’t continue to have the same name as a popular NBA point guard. Among many other problems it posed, they couldn’t exactly trademark it and sell merchandise. The story of how they came up with Pearl Jam has been much-mythologized over the years, largely due to the fact that Vedder claimed it was after his grandmother Pearl who created hallucinogenic jam, but the real story is far more mundane. Bassist Jeff Ament randomly thought of the name Pearl, and the rest came to them after they saw Neil Young and Crazy Horse play a killer set at the Nassau Coliseum on the Smell the Horse tour. “Every song was like a 15-or 20-minute jam,” said Ament. “So that’s how ‘jam’ got added on to the name. Or at least that’s how I remember it.”
The five members of Radiohead first came together when they were high schoolers at Abingdon School in Oxfordshire. They rehearsed after school let out for the week on Friday nights, inspiring them to call the band On a Friday. Gigs were extremely infrequent – perhaps because their moniker seemed to limit their availability to just one day of the week – until the early 1990s when they became regulars on the Oxford circuit and even cut a demo featuring future Radiohead songs “You,” “Thinking About You” and “Prove Yourself.” It wasn’t a hit but did grab the attention of EMI Records, who signed the band and suggested they think of a better handle. The group were all huge fans of the Talking Heads, so they took their new name from the super obscure 1986 song “Radio Head.”
The sallow goths who would become the Cure might not seem like the sort of blokes to name themselves for a large phallic monument, but that’s just what they did when the then–middle school students got together in the early Seventies. Robert Smith, pre–mop top and raccoon eyes, was a background figure in the Obelisk, playing piano, but he soon moved up front and took charge of the group’s moniker. After a few more lineup changes and a couple transitory names, Malice and Easy Cure (the latter of which the singer found too “hippyish”), Smith dubbed them the Cure. For more than a few lovelorn sad sacks, they would live up to billing.
More benignly forgettable than truly offensive, the name Smile simply cannot approximate the power of the music that the group’s guitarist, Brian May, and drummer, Roger Taylor, would record with their next band: Queen. In his book Queen: The Early Years, author Mark Hodkinson wrote that the group’s bassist and vocalist, Tim Staffell, “adopted the concept of a group called ‘Smile’ as part of a college project and built a graphics campaign around it.” When Staffell quit the group, May and Taylor formed a new group with singer Freddie Mercury who gave them the name Queen. “The concept of Queen is to be regal and majestic,” he once told Circus. “Glamour is a part of us and we want to be dandy. We want to shock and be outrageous.”
Atomic Mass is defined, first, as the mass of an atom and, second, as a really bad idea for a band name. That notion did not deter a group of rockers from Sheffield, England, including bassist Rick Savage, guitarist Pete Willis and singer Joe Elliott, from using that nonstarter of a moniker, despite the fact that it never landed them a paying gig. Eventually Elliott snapped out of it and told his bandmates about posters he’d designed in art class at school for a fake band called “Deaf Leopard.” The group played around with the name’s spelling to avoid being compared to punk bands and stumbled on one of the most memorable-looking monikers since Led Zeppelin.
Adam Levine and Co. had to start somewhere, and they started as a suit-clad Nineties alt-rock outfit called Kara’s Flowers – a name that referenced a groupie who had a crush on all of them, but sounds like a Lilith Fair–ready girl group. Under that unfortunate moniker, the band released two albums, the self-released We Like Digging? and the major label flop (surprise, surprise) The Fourth World prior to dubbing themselves Maroon 5 for 2002’s funkySongs About Jane. In a 2004 interview with Rolling Stone, guitarist Jesse Carmichael claimed that before Kara’s Flowers signed to Reprise, their fuzzy guitar pop was akin to “Fugazi and System of a Down meets Sesame Street – the Sesame Street part was in our lyrics, which were nonsense.” Likewise, the band’s name.
When Brian Wilson began writing songs about surfing in 1961 he’d hardly ever even touched a surfboard, so to get some credibility he called his new group the Pendeltons after the plaid, wool shirts favored by the surf community. Just three months later, Los Angeles–based independent label Candix Records agreed to release their debut single “Surfin’.” But they hated the stuffy-sounding name and changed it to Beach Boys (after almost going with the Surfers) without even telling the band. It’s as generic as it comes, but the group had no choice but to go with it. In the early 1970s, tired of being known as a Beach Boy, Wilson suggested they change their name to Beach. The others didn’t go for it. They knew they were destined to be Beach Boys for life.
When Green Day took the stage at Cleveland’s House of Blues days beforetheir induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year, everyone but the most hardcore fans in attendance were confused by the name on their drum riser: Sweet Children. The faithful knew this was Green Day’s original moniker, and they were using it again for one night only as a celebration of their earliest days. Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt started playing local shows around the Bay Area as Sweet Children in 1986 when they were just 14 years old. They gained a tiny following and even got signed to Lookout! Records under that name, but they switched it to Green Day soon afterwards to avoid confusion with fellow California rock outfit Sweet Baby – and perhaps because being “sweet” ain’t so punk rock, even if it’s meant ironically. They took their new name from one of their early songs, which refers to a day when not much is done outside of smoking marijuana. Much more punk rock.
The Georgia rock band led by battling brothers Chris and Rich Robinson played a ragged mixture of garage rock and alt-country for about five years under the name Mr. Crowe’s Garden – reportedly inspired by Johnny Crow’s Garden, an early 20th century children’s book by Leonard Leslie Brookes – before changing it to something a little more in sync with their newfound Humble Pie/Faces obsession. As limp as their original moniker was, though, it could have been much, much worse: According to Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman, Def American head honcho Rick Rubin once told them, “‘I think you should be the Kobb Kounty Krows and spell it [like] the KKK.’ And we all laughed, and he goes, ‘No, I’m serious. . . I think that’d be marketable.’ We told him to go fuck himself. I mean, it was completely insulting on every level.”
The most melody-soaked rap act of the Nineties came together as junior high school kids in Cleveland when the city was a rap desert. Anthony “Krayzie Bone” Henderson crashed his moped, his crew came to school with bandages in solidarity and the Band Aid Boys were born. It’s unclear if he had broken any bones, but if he did, then maybe they would have arrived on their name a little sooner.
Before the Beastie Boys were reciting regrettable rhymes about objectifying women (and apologizing for it), teenagers Michael Diamond and Adam Yauch were misappropriating other cultures with the name of their early hardcore group called the Young Aborigines. “We came up with the idea that the music should be primitive in some way, which is how we came up with the Young Aborigines as the name of the band,” bassist Jeremy Shatan explained. “I even bought a record of Australian Aborigine music for inspiration.” Eventually, Shatan moved away for a summer and the group adopted the name Beastie Boys. “It was the stupidest name we could come up with,” the rechristened Mike D told Rolling Stone of the new name. Not quite.
Two years before they formed Kiss, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley played in a rather generic New York rock band bearing the certainly not generic, if totally ridiculous, name Wicked Lester. “There were all these three-part harmonies that sounded like Doobie Brothers,” Simmons wrote in his memoir Kiss and Make-Up. “And there wasn’t nearly enough guitar.” Determined to create a more unique and bombastic band, Simmons and Stanley split from their bandmates and looked in the Rolling Stonesclassified ads to find new drummer, which is where they found Peter Criss. He mentioned he was once in a band called Lips, inspiring Stanley to propose they start calling themselves Kiss. “Get the fuck out of here,” Criss complained. “That’s a terrible pansy name.” As would happen many times in the future of the group, things did not go the way the drummer wanted, though he learned to live with Kiss. “Good kissing makes for good laying,” he wrote in his memoir Makeup to Breakup. “It’s sexual, it’s cool.” And it’s infinitely better than Wicked Lester.
“Screaming abdabs” (also spelled “habdabs”) is old-timey British slang for a mystery ailment along the lines of the heebie-jeebies and possibly tied to the idea of delirium tremens. It’s also the goofy-sounding and internationally inscrutable name of an early version of Pink Floyd. Examples of usage of the term include: “Roger Waters, Nick Mason and Richard Wright were architecture students at London Polytechnic when they joined a band called Sigma 6, which later became the Screaming Abdabs,” and “The thought of spending one more second as a member of Pink Floyd gave Waters a case of the screaming abdabs.”
Soft White Underbelly
Final name: Blue Öyster Cult
While Blue Öyster Cult may not be the world’s greatest band name, it’s still a damn sight better than Soft White Underbelly, the moniker that founding BÖC members Buck Dharma, Albert Bouchard and Allen Lanier performed and recorded under during the late Sixties. It took the exit of original lead singer Les Braunstein – who was replaced by Eric Bloom – and a particularly scathing review of one of their shows at the Fillmore East to convince band manager Sandy Pearlman that Soft White Underbelly needed a new name. After initially recasting them as Oaxaca and then the Stalk-Forrest Group, Pearlman came up with Blue Öyster Cult. . . and the rest is cowbell-clanking history.
EW&F leader Maurice White cut his teeth as a session drummer in Chicago during the Sixties, for everyone from Betty Everett (“You’re No Good”) to Etta James to the Ramsey Lewis Trio (“Wade in the Water”). In 1969 he formed his own trio, and its name was pure Sixties cheese: the Salty Peppers. “I was still in a jazz state at that time,” White told Vibe in 1999. A move to L.A. and seven more bandmates later, White turned to astrology for a bigger, better name: as a Sagittarius, his elements were earth, air and fire.
Introduced to each other by psych-rock icon Skip Spence, guitarist Tom Johnston and drummer John Hartman formed Pud in San Jose. They slowly picked up the other two Doobs and changed their name from a childish weiner reference to a slightly-less-childish pot reference. They pulled Pud and released their Doobie debut in 1971.
“You’re automatically stamped with ‘Evil’ on your forehead with a name like Burn the Priest,” Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe said in 2000 of why his band changed its moniker the year before. The Virginian neo-thrash outfit had slogged it out for five years with that inflammatory moniker and even released an album, 1999’s self-titled full-length, under the name; needless to say, the over-the-top handle, which at first helped garner the group attention, soon began to get in the way, especially as the five-piece found people increasingly assuming that they played satanic black metal. When a 1999 lineup change gave them the perfect excuse to rechristen themselves, they took on Lamb of God, which Blythe described as “a little less of a sledgehammer in the face,” and since have become one of the leading metal bands in the world – though, ironically, they’ve been banned from playing numerous venues because of their current name.
Rainbow Butt Monkeys
Final name: Finger Eleven
Before they were the post-grunge hitmakers behind 2003’s “One Thing,” the members of Finger Eleven were students at Lester B. Pearson High School – mature enough to know that there’s only so far a band with the profoundly stupid, Wayne’s World–friendly name Rainbow Butt Monkeys can get. Back then they were a hard-groovin’ Chili Peps–style thrash-funk clone that eventually got signed to Mercury and released one album under that moniker, Letters From Chutney. Their cryptic new name came with a moody new sound in 1997 and we were, sadly, denied the chance to hear Jay Leno have to say “Rainbow Butt Monkeys” on national TV.
SoCal party animals Sugar Ray originally called themselves the Shrinky Dinks (and later Shrinky Dinx), after the oven-heated children’s arts and crafts kit of the same name, allegedly because it was the most useless toy they could think of. But once the group got hot themselves – landing a deal with Atlantic Records in 1994 – their impressively un-badass band name aroused the ire of Shrinky Dinks manufacturer Milton Bradley, who threatened to sue. Mark McGrath and Co. then renamed themselves for boxer Sugar Ray Robinson, who by that point was too dead to give a shit.
Tony Flow and the Miraculously Majestic Masters of Mayhem
“That’s was how we wanted to play, majestic and chaotic” explained Anthony Kiedis of a name somehow more unwieldy than the six-syllable Red Hot Chili Peppers. In 1983, a friend suggested that bassist Flea, guitarist Hillel Slovak and local character Anthony Kiedis play a song before his band’s gig at the Rhythm Room in Los Angeles. Soon, Tony Flow and the Miraculously Majestic Masters of Mayhem appeared for two shows in February 1983. “I was wearing a paisley corduroy three-quarter-length robe and a fluorescent orange hunting cap,” remembered Kiedis about the first night. “Oddly enough, I was totally sober.”
Black Sabbath is pretty much the most perfect name for the world’s first heavy-metal band, but it didn’t come to them immediately. When Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward first came together in 1968 they were doing blues rock numbers under the name the Polka Tulk Blues Band, though one day early on Iommi told Osbourne it was terrible. “Every time I hear it, all I can picture is you, with your trousers around your ankles, taking a fucking dump,” he said. “It’s crap.” His big idea was to rebrand themselves as Earth, though they soon discovered they weren’t the only English band with that name. Butler eventually saved the day when he saw a crowd of people lined up to see the Boris Karloff film Black Sabbathand convinced his bandmates to try it out.
The hirsute white boys in Creedence Clearwater Revival turned their passion for black music and Southern culture into a distinctive California-soaked choogle that had Tina Turner covering their songs and Bruce Springsteen inducting them into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. However, they would probably be remembered as the Vanilla Ice of the Vanilla Fudge era had they stuck with the racist path they started as the Golliwogs — a band in frizzy white afro wigs, a whiteface reversal of the minstrel-like caricature of their namesake. Though they were working as the Visions, Fantasy Records owner Max Weiss changed the name of the embryonic band for its first single, 1964’s “Don’t Tell Me No Lies.” “I think, at least to Max anyway, ‘Golliwogs’ sounded sort of British,” said rhythm guitarist Tom Fogerty. “We always hated the name – still do – but Max owned the label and we were new and wanted very much to make records, so we went along with things.” The same corporate meddling that got them into that mess, also got them out: When Saul Zaentz bought the company in 1967, he made them find a new handle.
Perhaps through some act of fan mercy, the words “Naked Toddler” do not currently appear anywhere on Creed’s Wikipedia page. But the fact is, when the group first came together in the mid Nineties, guitarist Mark Tremonti presented his bandmates with a newspaper clipping he kept in his wallet containing a story about an abducted “naked toddler” and convinced them it would a good moniker. “The name didn’t go over well,” singer Scott Stappwrote in his autobiography. “Girls hated it and said it made them think of pedophilia.” The band eventually adopted Creed as a shortened form of the name of bassist Brian Marshall’s previous outfit Mattox Creed. And yet, the group apparently aren’t totally ashamed of their NAMBLA-esque original name. In 2012, they posted a piece of “Creed Trivia” to their Facebook pageasking fans if they knew the band’s original name. About 600 fans have replied so far, all confident in typing “Naked Toddler.”
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A trio of Wisconsin Republicans looking to inject the party with their own youthful, aggressive brand of conservatism ushered in the “Cheesehead Revolution.” Their aim was to position the GOP for success in the 2016 presidential election.
Then came Donald Trump.
With the anti-Trump movement in full swing even as Trump solidifies his front-runner status in the presidential race, the focus turns to the April 5 primary in the home state of those three heavyweights: House Speaker Paul Ryan, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and Gov. Scott Walker.
They are trying to chart a course in the face of a revolt over Trump’s rise and what it means for the future of the Republican Party — and for each of them individually.
“The great plans came off the tracks with the presence of Donald Trump, both in terms of where the party would be and presidential ambitions,” said Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, who ran against Walker twice and lost both times. “Donald Trump changed everything.”
The “Cheesehead Revolution,” as Walker and Priebus dubbed it, began in 2011. With Ryan rising in the House, Walker a new governor, and Priebus taking over the party apparatus, the trio then represented what looked to be a unified party in a swing state that could become a GOP stronghold in presidential races to come.
But in 2012, Mitt Romney lost to incumbent Barack Obama, with Ryan as his running mate. Priebus tried to steer the party in a more inclusive direction.
In 2013, he issued the “Growth and Opportunity Project,” aimed toward an immigration overhaul and outreach to minorities, and driven by the recognition that Hispanics in particular were rising as a proportion of the population.
Now that tract is known as an autopsy report.
The recommendations put Priebus at odds with more conservative Republicans. And now, two of the three remaining presidential candidates, Trump and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, have built their campaigns not on trying to broaden the party by reaching out to Hispanics and minorities, but by appealing to evangelicals and more conservative white voters.
Take me to your leader. That’s what you hear in classic sci-fi movies when the little green men land. But those words are also apropos in this election season. When the 2016 presidential race ends, what leader will those ETs be taken to?
We’re not saying that otherworldly beings are getting behind a candidate just yet, but a UFO was reported following Donald Trump’s helicopter earlier this month at the Iowa State Fair.
Of course, just because an object in the sky can’t be immediately identified, it doesn’t mean we’re being visited by ETs. There’s probably a perfectly humdrum explanation for whatever it was trailing America’s foremost reality TV billionaire. But until officials know for sure, we’ll file it under UFO.
Trump was at the fair Aug. 15, offering kids a free ride on his chopper. At 1 p.m., an onlooker snapped a picture (see above) that later revealed an unusual-looking object in the sky.
“We were walking down the street to the fair. Donald Trump’s helicopter was flying overhead so I got my phone out and snapped a picture,” according to an unnamed witness who submitted the photo, which became Case 69530 in the Mutual UFO Network database.
MUFON is a nonprofit organization in California that records and investigates sightings worldwide.
“It was very hard to see the helicopter because of the glare on the screen. Later on that day when I was sitting in the shade I got my phone out to see how my picture had come out. That’s when I noticed the object in the photo.” (see enlargement of object below.)
OpenMinds.TV reports that the Iowa chapter of MUFON is investigating the case to determine if the UFO in question might have been another helicopter or a bird, or something else.
Why might ETs be fascinated with Trump? Let’s just blame President Obama. That’s what Republicans tend to do, anyway.
At the 2011 White House Correspondents dinner, as controversy over the authenticity of the president’s birth certificate swirled, Obama addressed “The Apprentice” star directly … and sarcastically.
“Did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell?” Obama asked, trying to conflate conspiracy theories about his supposed Kenyan birth with alleged UFO coverups.
Throughout this video sequence, Trump is clearly not amused:
Of course, Trump isn’t the only candidate in this race, though, given the excessive coverage he gets, that sometimes bears mentioning.
UFOs are swirling around the Clintons — yes, both of them.
Last year, former President Bill Clinton told Jimmy Kimmel (see video below) that he actually tried to find out what was going on at Area 51, the top secret military base north of Las Vegas. According to many UFO activists, that’s where clandestine U.S. military groups have hidden remnants of crashed flying saucers.
Clinton also said he looked into the story of whether or not a UFO crashed near Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947:
Hillary Clinton’s current bid to take up residency again in the White House includes a highly intriguing and credible UFO connection — John Podesta.
Podesta — who served as Bill Clinton’s chief of staff — has often publicly encouraged the Washington powers-that-be to reveal the truth about unexplained UFO cases, as seen in this 2002 video:
In February 2015, Podesta completed a year as senior advisor to Obama. On his final day in that position, he tweeted: “My biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the disclosure of the UFO files.”
Shortly after that tweet, Hillary Clinton hired Podesta as chairman of her second presidential pursuit. In a Clinton pre-campaign story back in April, independent news outlet Mother Jones reported how UFO activists were excited with the possibility that Podesta might have the UFO-friendly ear of another Clinton in the White House.
According to Mother Jones:
Asked for clarification of Hillary Clinton’s stance on UFO disclosure, a spokesman from her office responded via email. ‘Our non-campaign has a strict policy of not commenting on extraterrestrial activity,’ [Clinton press secretary] Nick Merrill wrote. ‘BUT, the Truth Is Out There.’
North Korea released a video showing a nuclear strike on Washington and then threatened South Korea with a “merciless military strike” for slandering leader Kim Jong-Un.
Pyongyang has been ramping up the bellicose rhetoric and propaganda for weeks, since the launch of annual South Korea-U.S .war games that it views as provocative rehearsals for invasion.
Seoul and Washington made the already large-scale joint drills bigger than ever this year in response to the North’s nuclear test in January and long-range rocket launch a month later.
Menacingly titled “Last Chance”, the video released on Saturday shows a submarine-launched nuclear missile laying waste to Washington and concludes with the U.S. flag in flames.
The four-minute video romps through the history of U.S.-Korean relations and ends with a digitally manipulated sequence showing a missile surging through clouds, swerving back to Earth and slamming down in front of Washington’s Lincoln Memorial.
The U.S. Capitol building explodes in the impact and a message flashes up on the screen in Korean: “If U.S. imperialists budge an inch toward us, we will immediately hit them with nuclear (weapons).”
The North has issued similar videos in the past, including one in 2013 showing the White House in a sniper’s crosshairs and the Capitol building exploding in a fireball.
The latest offering was published on the North’s propaganda website DPRK Today and shows images from the Korean War, the capture of U.S. spy ship Pueblo in 1968 and the first crisis over North Korea’s nuclear program in the early 1990s.
North Korea has been pushing to acquire a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) capability which would take its nuclear strike threat to a new level, allowing deployment far beyond the Korean peninsula and the potential to retaliate in the event of a nuclear attack.
It has conducted a number of what it says were successful tests of an SLBM, but experts have questioned the claim, suggesting Pyongyang had gone little further than a “pop-up” test from a submerged platform.
That is partly due to the nuclear test and the UN sanctions that followed, but also because of the first-time inclusion in the drills of an operation that envisages strikes to “decapitate” North Korea’s top leadership.
Pyongyang has taken that as a direct threat to leader Kim Jong-Un and responded with increasingly abusive personal attacks on South Korean President Park Geun-Hye.
On Thursday, Kim presided over a huge, long-range artillery drill simulating a strike on Park’s office and official residence in Seoul.
And on Saturday, the artillery section of the Korean People’s Army (KPA) issued an “ultimatum” demanding Park apologize and punish those who formulated the decapitation strategy.
“If matchless traitor Park Geun-Hye and her group do not respond … the long-range artillery force of the KPA large combined unit on the front will move over to merciless military action,” it said in a statement carried by the North’s official KCNA news agency.
The warning came hours after KCNA published a statement by the North’s “reconciliation council” that referred to Park as “dog-like”, “chicken-like” and a “dirty old woman” who grants sexual favors to the leaders of South Korea’s allies.
The insults have multiplied as Park has hardened her stance with the North in recent months, accusing Kim of leading his country along a path of self-destruction and vowing harsh retaliation to any military provocations.
South Korean activists on Saturday launched three balloons carrying tens of thousands of anti-Pyongyang leaflets across the border into North Korea.
One balloon was strung with a large banner printed with a Pyongyang-published picture of Kim Jong-Un smiling against the backdrop of a missile being assembled.
“Bring down a firestorm on nuclear maniac Kim Jong-Un,” read the slogan.
Cruz praises Robertson for “saying the things you’re not supposed to say.” In Robertson’s case this includes blatant homophobia and racism, hate speech that obviously doesn’t bother Ted Cruz in the slightest. According to Cruz, he expresses these sentiments with “joy.”
Don’t worry, he’s just joking…I think.
“You know there’s a reason he terrifies the mainstream media. He says the things you’re not supposed to say,” Cruz said at Friday’s rally. “He actually remembers who we are as Americans and just speaks it with a joy, not with an anger, not with a hatred, with a joy in who we are.”
The mainstream media are “terrified” of Robertson? What world is this happening in?
ABC’s newest sitcom The Real O’Neals is described as “just your typical all-American, Catholic, divorcing, disgraced, law-breaking, gay family” and continues on to say their family is “a perfect mess.” It is now airing on Tuesday evenings at 8:30/7:30 p.m. CT.
The Real O’Neals mocks Christianity and insults Catholicism. One Million Moms (1MM) recognizes this show ridicules people of faith, and Christians across America are offended by it.
The Parents Television Council, which has also taken issue with the program, recently released research it conducted about the graphic content on the series, which is rated PG.
“PTC research has found that the first three episodes of ABC’s new show, ‘The Real O’Neals’ were saturated with adult content,” noted PTC.
“Children watching were exposed to either sexual dialogue or bleeped profanities on an average of once every 43 seconds — in spite of the fact that the show is rated TV-PG and airs as early as 7:30 p.m. in half the country.”
PTC President Tim Winter said in a statement that “ABC has essentially inserted explicit and adult-themed humor into a PG-rated, primetime program that is about a family, created for families.”
“Even worse, much of the sexual and expletive-laced dialogue is delivered by characters who are children. Simply put, the network is defrauding parents by rating this show as appropriate for young children,” continued Winter.
“I’d argue that most parents would not agree that the kind of content found in ‘The Real O’Neals’ is anywhere near acceptable for family audiences.”
Catholic League President Bill Donohue seems optimistic that a similar fate may meet The Real O’Neals, arguing that the series was already failing in the ratings.
“ABC is in a jam and they know it. Even they must admit that last night’s episode of ‘The Real O’Neals’ was just plain stupid. The ratings show it: once again, it trailed the competition on CBS and NBC,” wrote Donohue.
It is almost impossible to describe the depth of depravity found in the sitcom The Real O’Neals. It is impossible to list them all, so here are a few scenes from this TV – PG – D rated show:
Jesus appears where only the gay son can see and talk to Him, and He is annoyed by the mom’s strict guidelines for her family.
The daughter steals money she is supposedly raising for charity.
The daughter “attempts to prove” that there is no God in a science fair project.
ABC network refers to this highly dysfunctional family as “the perfect Irish-Catholic family.”
A statue of Mary is kept above the O’Neal’s toilet to remind the boys to put the seat down.
The first jab at Jesus comes only 52 seconds into the first episode.
The mother encourages her 16-year-old gay son to “try sex” with a girl.
The mom makes pancakes shaped like the face of Jesus to guilt trip her anorexic son into eating.
One of the show’s producers is anti-Christian bigot Dan Savage, and the show is said to be loosely based on his life.
The most recent episode claims that 10% of Americans are gay. Maybe in Hollywood!
