1. ROAD RAGE
Police say road rage led to the death of a 17-year-old girl who was walking to a Sterling mosque after a pre-dawn trip to McDonald’s with a group of other teens early Sunday morning. Reported by WTOP: Police: Road rage blamed for killing of Va. Muslim teen.
+ What most mainstream news outlets have failed to report (intentionally left out) is the alleged attacker one Darvin Martinez Torres is an illegal immigrant as reported by the Toronto Sun: Suspected illegal immigrant Darvin Martinez Torres accused of brutally beating Muslim girl in road rage incident.
2. OUT OF THIS WORLD
Nasa’s Kepler space telescope has discovered over 200 potential planets. Nasa scientists released a comprehensive catalogue, listing 219 new planet candidates, 10 of which are “near-Earth size and orbiting in their star’s habitable zone”, indicating that they could play host to alien life. Kepler’s latest discoveries bring up the total number of potential planets found by the space telescope to 4,034, of which 2,335 have been verified as exoplanets. Reported by International Business Time: Nasa discovers 10 Earth-like potential planets that could host alien life. (In my humble opinion they have already discovered life on other planets but have decided not to inform the general public of their findings.)
3. TO CLOSE FOR COMFORT
An armed Russian fighter jet buzzed a U.S. Air Force reconnaissance aircraft in the Baltic Sea on Monday, two U.S. officials told Fox News. The Russian Su-27 jet had air-to-air missiles under its wings and approached the U.S. Air Force RC-135 recon jet “rapidly,” coming within five feet of the American aircraft, the officials said. Fox News World: Armed Russian jet comes within 5 feet of US recon jet.
+ Russia is constantly improving its nuclear deterrence and is very close to deploying new technologically-advanced intercontinental ballistic missiles which can defeat any US missile defense systems. Reports RT News: Russia’s new ICBMs can ‘rip apart’ US anti-missile systems.
+ Also, reported by RT News: Russia & China announce new ‘unspecified’ measures to US’ anti-missile system in S. Korea. And, China tests new missile near Korean peninsula. And, Iran has to get in a jab too – Iranian commander warns US of ‘irreversible consequences’ over ‘unprofessional’ moves in Gulf. (We are itching towards WW3 folks – and the U.S. military and the nation isn’t ready for an all-out world war three, which is very different than the “world policing” engagements that they’ve became used to.)
4. WHEN BLACK BEARS ATTACK
“It’s very unusual. “It’s sort of like someone being struck by lightning.” Fox News: Black bears kill 2 in Alaska.
5. THAT’S A HUGE PILE OF… POOP
When doctors in China removed 30 inches of a young man’s colon, they also removed nearly 29 lbs. (13 kilograms) of his feces. The 22-year-old’s belly had swelled past the size that would be seen in a pregnant woman, at full-term, according to a Chinese news agency that reported his case. He told doctors that he had been constipated since birth, and that laxatives provided only slight relief. Fox News Health: Man’s 29 lbs. of poop removed.
6. DUCK AND COVER
If a nuclear attack threatens the U.S., who is most likely to survive? It’s a question often explored in disaster, end-of-the-world films, but one that has resulted in the growth of an industry devoted to sheltering the wealthy and the powerful in the wake of a serious attack. Journalist Garrett Graff explores this phenomenon in his new book, “Raven Rock: The Story of the U.S. Government’s Secret Plan to Save Itself — While the Rest of Us Die”, where he brings to light how the U.S. government has begun to renovate and strengthen secret bunkers across the country to protect high-ranking government officials from a nuclear attack. The book looks at the intensified effort by the government and Congress to fund the top secret “Continuity of Government” plan, and a preview from the New York Post details a number of hidden bunkers scattered across the country. Salon: The federal government is setting up to protect the elite from nuclear attack while letting the rest of us die.
(They know it’s coming folks and they are planning for it, why else would they be spending funds and manpower on nuclear protection for the government officials and wealthy “elites”? And let’s not forget the former President Obama bought a home with an underground bunker.)
7. YELLOWSTONE ABOUT TO BLOW
The Yellowstone supervolcano has been hit by a series of earthquakes, with more 400 recorded since June 12. The latest was recorded on Monday, June 19, with a magnitude 3 earthquake striking 8.6 miles north northeast of West Yellowstone, Montana. The probability of a large eruption at Yellowstone in the next year is currently calculated at one in 730,000. Reports Newsweek: Yellowstone Supervolcano Hit by a Swarm of More Than 400 Earthquakes in One Week.
8. PEACE, QUITE AND NOT A TERRORIST IN SIGHT
David Glasheen, 73, abandoned civilization and moved to the inhospitable Restoration Island, a tiny landmass off North East Australia’s most remote peninsula, in May 1997 after losing his fortune in the stock exchange crash of 1987. By TUI BENJAMIN in the Mirror UK: ‘I don’t have to fear a terrorist attack’: Millionaire real-life Robinson Crusoe celebrates 20 years on his own desert island. (Good for him… living his life the way he wants… I’d get bored without some female company though.)
9. WELL THAT EXPLAINS A LOT
From the Daily Caller: McCain Institute Funded By Soros… Meanwhile: Bernie Sanders: Act in “Unprecedented” Ways, Fight Back in Every Way That You Can.
10. THE BOTTOM OF THE NEWS

+ Storm warning issued for Louisiana Coast… A tropical storm warning has been issued for a section of Louisiana’s coast as a weather system approaches from the Gulf of Mexico. The warning is in effect from Cameron, Louisiana, to Intracoastal City. The system’s maximum sustained winds early Tuesday are near 40 mph (64 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center says some slight strengthening is possible before the system reaches the coast, either late Wednesday or Wednesday night.
