    Scott C Waring, a self-proclaimed alien hunter who is currently operating from Taiwan has now released an eerie video that shows hundreds of UFOs hovering in the skies of California. Interestingly, this alleged UFO incident happened during broad daylight, and people who have shot the visuals can be seen trembling while capturing the footage. Did Aliens Pay a Visit to Earth? After analyzing the video, Waring strongly assured that these flying objects could be alien vessels that might have visited the earth from deep space. He added that this video is not fabricated, and it is authentic footage captured by...
  • The weirdness of UFOs, ‘The Hollow Earth’

    This unusual year shows signs of becoming weirder yet. Reading Nathaniel Philbrick’s “Sea of Glory” about the little-known U.S. Exploring Expedition (or “Ex-Ex”) of 1836 reminded me how 1965 was a particularly strange year for me. That October my family moved from Texas to Vermont, where we were “the Kennedy killers” in the eyes of New Englanders still resentful of the President’s assassination; we arrived the week after a couple named Hill were abducted in neighboring New Hampshire by a UFO; the massive Northeastern power blackout occurred the following week; and I was expelled from school ten minutes into my...

  • CA-25 Special Election for Disgraced Katie Hill's Former Seat Too Close to Call(?)

    The nationally-watched special election in California’s 25th congressional district ended in a GOP victory on Tuesday night. The race has not been called thus far, but Republican Mike Garcia holds a substantial lead over Democrat Christy Smith in the race for disgraced former Congresswoman Katie Hill's seat. Hillary Clinton also won the district by +6 in 2016. Leading up to the election, the nonpartisan Cook Political Report deemed the race as a “toss-up.” Garcia's victory would represent the first GOP flip of a congressional seat in California since 1998.

    Freddy McConnell, a “trans man” who became pregnant and gave birth, but legally became a man when the child was born, has been pursuing a legal challenge against the General Register Office as the administrator of the registration of births and deaths in England and Wales. This week he lost at the Court of Appeal in an attempt to be registered on the child’s birth certificate as the child’s father. ... Undaunted, McConnell tweeted: “Disappointing, conservative decision but we knew this would be a long fight. Don’t lose hope. We are applying to the Supreme Court. Trans parents will get...

    New findings suggest laws of nature 'downright weird,' not as constant as previously thought by Lachlan Gilbert, University of New South Wales Scientists examining the light from one of the furthermost quasars in the universe were astonished to find fluctuations in the electromagnetic force. Credit: Shutterstock Not only does a universal constant seem annoyingly inconstant at the outer fringes of the cosmos, it occurs in only one direction, which is downright weird.

    They concluded that “all identified outbreaks of three or more cases occurred in an indoor environment, which confirms that sharing indoor space is a major SARS-CoV-2 infection risk.” On Tuesday, leading German virologist Hendrik Streeck, director of the Institute of Virology and HIV Research at the University Bonn, said, “There is no significant risk of catching the disease when you go shopping.” He is involved in major studies for the German government and noted that “staying inside for a longer time can lead to weakening of our immune system.” He warned we must “make sure that decisions are taken based...

    Florida man was arrested and charged with felony theft after he was allegedly caught using a garbage can to sneak 66 rolls of toilet paper out of a Marriott hotel. Angel Esteban Hernandezcinto, 31, was arrested in the early morning hours of Thursday after police responded to security guard Yamil Egipciaco's call complaining that a man was stealing toilet paper from the hotel. At 1:30 a.m., the guard said he was on regular patrols when he noticed suspicious activity from Hernandezcinto, according to an arrest affidavit. "Yamil saw Angel pushing a trash can toward his Honda van," the arresting officer...

    OLYMPIA – Lt. Gov. Cyrus Habib, who presided over the Senate for the last three years as part of his duties as the state’s No. 2 elected official, will not seek re-election, his office announced this morning. Habib said he will be joining the Jesuits. “This decisions follows two years of careful and prayerful discernment,” Habib said in a news release. “But since that process has been almost entirely private, I realize this will come as a major surprise to my constituents and supporters.” Habib, who has been blind since age 8 because of cancer, managed his duties as president...

    The data speaks for itself. A new survey of more than 8,000 people has found that those who identify with left-wing political beliefs are more likely to have been diagnosed with a mental illness. Ann Coulter’s “liberalism is a mental disorder” catchphrase has become something of a clichéd meme, but the data appears to support it. Carried out by Slate Star Codex, the online survey collected a wealth of data from respondents about their education, demographic, lifestyle and political views. The results show that people who occupy the farther left end of the political spectrum are more likely to have...

    And so to me, the best use of that big blue-and-white airplane that comes with the Oval Office that the president uses mostly for the purpose of traveling among golf courses with his name on them -- I don't even golf so that's not going to be how I use that airplane. I'm going to use that airplane to go directly into the backyard of senators who are not just defying my White House but defying their own voters, their own constituents, and require them to explain to the people who sent them to Washington why they refuse to enact...

    A Chinese businesswoman who was convicted of trespassing at President Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida earlier this year had been urged by her handler to target other famous figures including the Clintons and billionaire businessman Warren Buffett, court documents say. Yujing Zhang, 33, who is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 22, was caught by Secret Service agents with troves of technology embedded with malware and thousands of dollars in cash after she claimed that she was at Trump's prestigious club to attend a “United Nations friendship event” that had apparently been canceled. Her bizarre behavior and backstory led to...
  • Transgender Mother Can Be Listed as Father on Birth Certificate, Illinois Rules

    A biological woman who identifies as male and gave birth in December will be listed as the father on the child’s birth certificate under a landmark decision by the state of Illinois. The state originally ruled that the transgender man, Myles Brady Davis, would be listed as the mother because Myles was the one who carried the baby. Myles identifies as transmasculine. But then Lambda Legal sent a letter to the Illinois Department of Public Health on Myles’ behalf, and the state changed course. Myles – although born female and having carried the baby in the womb – will be...

    **SNIP** House Republicans have been trying to throw sand in the gears of the impeachment inquiry from the start. Nadler, along with Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff before him, has largely succeeded in keeping things on track. But the frequency and fervor with which the GOP lawmakers objected today seemed to trip Nadler up a bit, and they focused relentlessly on the Democrats’ unusual if not unprecedented structure for the hearing. Republicans had hoped that Schiff would testify about his committee’s report, which would give them an opportunity to question the chairman on whether he ever met the anonymous whistle-blower...

    The court of protection has ruled that a man who cannot understand the issue of consent must be allowed to pursue sexual relationships. Mrs Justice Roberts ruled that the man, who has autism with impaired cognition and lives in a supported residential placement, has a “fundamental right to sex”. The court considers issues relating to people who might lack the mental capacity to make decisions. A clinical psychologist submitted a report saying that the 36-year-old man, referred to as JB, represents a “moderate risk” of sexual offending to women, particularly to those who are vulnerable, and that JB cannot understand...

    Facebook in the Washington DC area that appear to be designed to seek out and recruit Russian spies and informants, a report by CNN has revealed. A vast number of ads have appeared on the social media site over the past few weeks, with one such sponsored post showing a stock image of a girl with her family at graduation, with Russian text overlaid which reads: 'For your future, for the future of your family.' Other ads included a picture of a chess board with the caption, 'Time make your move', and another of a sketch of a man walking...

    A young mother-to-be was left terrified by her pregnancy scan because it looked like she was growing a 'devil baby' inside her - when her daughter looked at the camera and grinned. Iyanna Carrington, 17, from Richmond, Virginia, was at her 24-week gender scan when the midwife showed her the tiny baby's 'beautiful' face - before breaking the news she was a girl. But when she rolled the doppler over Iyanna's bump a second time to give her one last look, the teenager was left 'scared' as her baby flashed a bizarre 'grin' at her with wide open eyes. But...

    Homosexuality is usually a problem transferred to a foetus, when a pregnant woman has anal sex and enjoys it, the Bishop of Morphou Neophytos said during a recent speech, LGBTI rights group ACCEPT said on Thursday. During his speech in June to a group of people in Akaki, the bishop said Saint Porfyrios made mention of the issue in his writings. “It is a problem, which is usually transmitted by parents to the child,” the bishop said. He added that it occurs when the couple has sex while the woman is pregnant, and the sex is “unnatural,” as he characterised...
