Why I Stopped Watching The Walking Dead and More: Your Monday Briefing
Here’s what you need to know:
1. Why I stopped Watching The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead seems to have very little idea how guns actually work. Even if the way The Walking Dead uses guns isn’t realistic, to me, it’s not even “movie/TV realistic” either. As reported by Paul Tassi in Forbes: Can Someone Please Explain To ‘The Walking Dead’ How Guns Work? (Another thing that I’ve noticed and the one the pushed me from being a fan of the show to no longer interested is many times when the semi-auto and full-auto firearms are supposed to be being fired if you look closely, the actions aren’t even moving. It looks so fake and it just ridiculous…
2. After Mass Shootings, Should Guns be Welcomed into Churches?
If you don’t have a weapon, it’s very difficult to fight someone with a weapon… Churches opposed to firearms could keep their parishes safe by having someone outside the building keeping an eye and ear out for trouble. From Michael Boulter in the PBS News Hour: After mass shootings, should legal guns be welcomed into church? (The article includes both pro and negative responses to the question from those interviewed which is good in a time of mostly one-sided reporting, but no matter what, I for one will always carry a loaded Glock 34 to Sunday service… and yes, I know how to use it.)
+ And this has to be the most sickening (and stupid) article that I’ve ever had the misfortune of reading – The Gun maker’s strategy: marketing products to men’s basest instincts.
+ Well, this one might be even worse than the one I linked to above – Do we love our guns more than our children? (Folks, the anti-gun thugs are still wanting your guns and they love to use “the children as a marketing ploy to guilt the population into supporting their cause of eventual total gun bans and confiscation.)
+ Well, this one might be even worse still – Just outlaw the killing machines once and for all. It’s way past time. Take all the guns! (For some reason the stupidity and complete lack of logic of the anti-gun left still amaze me when it should be expected.)
+ And from Breitbart: NBC News Uses California School Shooting to Whip Up Fear About Guns That Are Already Illegal.
3. Helter Skelter No More Manson Dead at 83
Charles Manson, the wild-eyed 1960s cult leader whose followers committed heinous murders that terrorized Los Angeles and shocked the nation, died Sunday of natural causes, according to the California Department of Corrections. He was 83. Reported by Steve Almasy and Brandon Griggs, CNN: Charles Manson, leader of murderous ’60s cult, dead at 83. (I guess that in his mind he thought that if he had others commit the murders that he himself would not be held accountable… but that wasn’t the case and he spent the rest of his miserable life locked up in prison. At least now taxpayers will no longer be forced to pay for his incarceration.)
4. Continuing Down The Rabbit Hole
President Trump just nominated former chief lobbyist and President of the US division of drug company Eli Lilly, Alex Azar, to be the next Secretary of the Health and Human Services (HHS). Eli Lilly is the inventor and was the primary manufacturer of thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative used in vaccines that are linked to autism and other neurological disorders. From the Autism Action Network: President Trump Nominates Big Pharma Pro-Vaccine Exec as Secretary of the Health and Human Services.
5. Back To The Stone age
Illegal immigrants reportedly assaulted two U.S. Border Patrol agents with rocks, killing one and seriously injuring another Sunday near the southern border with Mexico. The Border Patrol website lists 38 agents who have died since late 2003, some attacked while working along the border, and other fatalities in traffic accidents. From Fox News: Border agent killed, partner injured by illegal immigrants using rocks, the report says. (We definitely need to build “the wall” and from the looks of things with U.S. border agents being stoned to death we might need a two-mile buffer zone armed with landmines and U.S. snipers with orders to shoot on sight along our southern border.)
6. Out Of Thin Air
As reported by Fox News: ‘Ghost car’ appears out of nowhere in crash footage… (A camera glitch maybe… or something else… what do you think?)
+ And more strange things: 3,000-Year-Old Castle Built by Mysterious Civilization Found at The Bottom of a Lake in Turkey…
+ ‘Looking for a smoking gun’: Russian billionaire to fund an alien-hunting mission to Saturn moon… (What do you think… is there intelligent life beyond earth?)
7. The Dusty American West is About To Get Worse
The 1930’s the United States was suffering from the most severe drought in its history, the “Dust Bowl.” And be prepared to bite the dust once again, because scientists think the Dust Bowl is coming back for a second round. And this time for decades. As reported by Strange Sounds: Another Dust Bowl will engulf the American West and last 35 years…
8. Bad Move Preppers
Across the North American countryside, preppers are storing more and more of their wealth in invisible wallets in cyberspace instead of stockpiling gold bars and coins in their bunkers and basement safes. They won’t be able to access their virtual cash the moment a catastrophe knocks out the power grid or the web, but that hasn’t dissuaded them. Even staunch survivalists are convinced bitcoin will endure economic collapse, global pandemic, climate change catastrophes and nuclear war. As reported by Eddie Van Der Walt at Bloomberg: These Doomsday Preppers Are Starting to Switch From Gold to Bitcoin…
9. Warning! ‘Severe’ Flu Pandemic Coming
Unpredictable mutations in the virus occur so rapidly that vaccinations against the killer illness become outdated within a matter of years. “When that next flu pandemic does come, the question is how severe is it going to be? “Some are very severe, as in 1918. The one in 1957 also killed about three million people. “The one in 1968 killed about 1.5 to two million people. As reported on by George Mills in The Sun: Killer flu to hit BRITAIN? Expert warns UK at risk of ‘severe’ pandemic…
