Iowa's Haunted Railroad



In 1877, an apparition of a "woman in white" appeared to several employees of the southwestern division of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad, on a lonesome stretch of track between Perlee and Pleasant Plain in southeastern Iowa. This ghost, believed to be the spirit of a woman who was raped and later succumbed to her injuries, was said to appear whenever her tormenters were passengers on the line.

The following is an article which appeared in the August 31, 1877 edition of the Jefferson City (MO.) State Journal:

According to the Fairfield Ledger, the shape, whatever it may be, was seon on Wednesday night, of last week, by Engineer Moore, on train No. 9, between Perlee and Pleasant Plain. It was walking up the track toward the engine and the careful engineer, thinking it a thing of flesh and blood, actually whistled for brakes and almost brought his train to a standstill. Just as the form was within a few feet of him it disappeared.
He saw the face plainly, and supposed it either that of a lunatic or a somnambulist. On Thursday and Friday night it was seen at different places between the two towns by engineers Shaffer and Crw, who agree with Moore as to its description, manner of appearance, etc. Since its first visit the train men have been on the watch, determined to see what it is and how it gets there. They are too brave to be frightened by the apparition, even if it is an inhabitant of the spirit world, but still their curiosity gets away with them, and in their determination to ferret out the mystery they do stand a little in awe of the fragile form that gives them these mysterious visits.


The matter is a common topic of conversation among railroad men on the division. Three years ago a married woman was outraged in a terrible manner near the place where the white specter has been seen, receiving injuries which caused her death some three weeks after. Now there is a suspicion that one or two parties who know more about the affair than they have ever told take occasional business trips on the line, and that it is to trouble their conscience that the form appears.

"Ice Bucket Challenge" death toll climbs to nine



What started as a way to raise money for the ALS Association in the fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (better known as Lou Gehrig's disease) has turned into a viral phenomenon, resulting in over $2.3 million being raised since late July. Sadly, the "ice bucket challenge" has also turned deadly- on at least nine occasions.

Two of the most recent deaths, which took place on August 15 and August 16 respectively, occurred in central Kansas. The victims, both teenage girls, were rushed to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita but died shortly after arrival. In a statement given earlier this afternoon by Sandra Eberhart, hospital administrator at the Galichia Heart Hospital at Wesley Medical Center, it was announced that the two latest "ice bucket challenge" deaths were the result of heart failure, brought on by sudden immersion in cold water.

Not surprisingly, all nine deaths- claiming victims as young as thirteen and as old as fifty- were due to "cold shock response". According to Dr. Stanley Goss of the Wesley Medical Center:

"Cold shock response is the most common cause of death from sudden immersion in very cold water. Extremely cold water can cause heart attack due to vasoconstriction, as the heart has to work harder to pump the same volume of blood throughout the body. For people with an undiagnosed heart disease, this can cause the heart to go into arrest."

In a public safety statement given to KWCH.com, Dr. Goss warns that heart failure is not the only health danger associated with the Ice Bucket Challenge:

"Inhalation of water and drowning may result from hyperventilation brought on by cold shock response. This is especially true on a hot day. The body's response to sudden exposure to cold water is to gasp, thus increasing the risk of death by drowning. Here in Kansas, the heat index has been above 100 for the past several days for much of the central and western part of the state. Exposure to cold water on an extremely hot day exacerbates the situation, thereby increasing the risk of death."

Statue of Jesus contains human teeth, x-rays reveal




Earlier this week, during a restoration of a 300-year-old statue of Jesus in Mexico, researchers discovered that the inside of the statue's mouth contained real human teeth. Researchers at the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) in Mexico made the strange discovery after performing x-rays on the three foot tall statue, known locally as the Lord of Patience.

The small statue, which is less than four feet tall, is from a church in San Bartolo Cuautlalpan, approximately 30 miles north of Mexico City. “It is common for statues to have teeth, but they are normally made of wood or carved individually out of bone,” said Fanny Unikel, an expert in Mexican art restorationr. “In this case, he has eight adult teeth. You can even see the roots.”

Unikel believes that the teeth were donated to the church out of gratitude. Researchers at INAH believe that the statue dates back to the 18th century.

Petition to Add Bigfoot to Endangered Species List Gains Momentum



In 2012, Peter Weimer implored the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to provide endangered species protection status to the creature known as Bigfoot. His request, however, was met with ridicule.

"This mythical animal does not exist in nature or otherwise," stated a Nov. 6, 2012 letter from DEC's Chief Wildlife Biologist Gordon R. Batcheller. The letter continued: "...the simple truth of the matter is that there is no such animal anywhere in the world. I am sorry to disappoint you."

The rejection was picked up by newspapers around the country and the story went viral, but even after nearly two years of public derision, Weimer hasn't abandoned his quest to see Bigfoot on the endangered species list. As of right now, Weimer's petition to the New York governor on Change.org to have Bigfoot added to the endangered species list has gained momentum; nearly half of the required signatures are already on the petition, which reads:

I respectfully request that a law be enacted including Sasquatch / Bigfoots on the New York State and National endangered species list.
 
From creating a Bigfoot convention three years ago as a special event to bring in tourism to Chautauqua County, New York. I have had sixteen eyewitnesses from Chautauqua County contact me resolving themselves in knowing they've seen a Bigfoot but are afraid to tell most anyone for fear of ridicule.  Five eyewitnesses from Cattaraugus County to our East and more then six eyewitnesses from Warren County, PA to our South.


The first documented sighting of a Bigfoot was in a newspaper article in Sackets Harbor, New York in 1818 of a large hairy wild man seen in the area. There are more then 100 documented sightings in New York State and more then 200 in Ohio as well as many other States including Hawaii...


I believe Bigfoots are as real as panthers, bear, and deer and are deserving of a endangered / protected species status because they are so rare and more then likely, part humanoid.


We feel it is important that New York State and the United States of America recognizes the danger these creatures are in and helps to do something about it.  Without our help to protect them, Sasquatch / Bigfoots will continue to be hunted versus living in peace and harmony as all other endangered species do today in the USA.


Is Peter Weimer sincere in his convictions about Bigfoot? Or is he just one more face in the ever-growing crowd looking to cash in on the cryptid craze by attempting to turn Chautauqua County into the Bigfoot Capital of the East?

The answer is, it doesn't really matter.

Bigfoot deserves to be on every state's endangered species list, even if there never was, or is, a creature known as Bigfoot. Such an action would not only protect a creature which may or may not exist, but it would be in the best interest of public safety. In 2012, for example, Spike TV offered a $10 million "bounty" for proof of the creatures existence. Do you think Spike TV would have paid out that sum to someone with grainy trailcam video footage or a blurry cellphone pic? Of course not. The "proof" is in the corpse.

In today's world, it's not too difficult to image an overzealous Bigfoot hunter roaming the wilderness with a shotgun, hellbent on shooting the first hairy creature he sees in the hopes of gaining fame and fortune. Thanks to mainstream media's recent fascination with cryptozoology in general and Bigfoot in particular, it's only a matter of time before the hunt for Bigfoot ends with tragic consequences. Wait and see-- it's bound to happen sooner or later.

So do the right thing and head over to Change.org to sign this petition. The life of some poor hermit covered in excessive body hair or a lost celebrity stumbling through the woods in a fur coat may depend on it!

The lethal injection conspiracy



In spite of three botched executions this year involving experimental drugs, the Supreme Court has remained mum on the issue- specifically, on the issue of where these drugs are manufactured and which companies are supplying them to the states where execution by lethal injection is legal.

Even after Arizona inmate Joseph Wood took two hours to die, snorting and gasping like a tortured trout, the court rejected Wood's claim that he was entitled to information about Arizona's execution procedures and, more importantly, the source of the deadly "experimental"  drugs used in the procedure.

It seems, at least from our perspective, that a sickening conspiracy is taking place within our judicial system.

Now, this isn't a matter of whether the death penalty should be abolished, it is simply a matter of transparency. You can still be in favor of the death penalty while opposing the lethal injection methods used in the United States. Yet, sadly, this discussion is sidelined by ignorant voices that say, "What do I care if it took Joseph Wood two hours to die? He was a cold-blooded killer who deserved to die."

That's not the argument at hand, folks.

What matters isn't the fact that states have the authority to take your life; what truly matters is the astonishing and frightening fact that states can take your life without telling you, your lawyer, or anyone else who, how, and where these lethal drugs are being made. What matters is that the constitutional amendment prohibiting cruel and unusual punishment is being thrown out the window by the highest court in the land. What matters is the trampling of the Constitution and the ever-quickening erosion of rights.

Firing squads, the gallows, and guillotines are one thing, but strapping a human being (guilty as he may be) to a table and pumping him full of experimental drugs is a horse of a different color. Man, even when condemned to death, is not to be treated like laboratory mice. And society, whether it supports or opposes the death penalty, is entitled to know the truth about these drugs.

So why the need for so much secrecy? What is it that the Supreme Court doesn't want the American public to know?

While the majority of Americans support capital punishment (60%, according to the latest Gallup poll), this means that a significant portion of American citizens do not- somewhere in the vicinity of 125 million Americans. Since we are not permitted to know the identities of the pharmaceutical companies involved in manufacturing or supplying the lethal injection drugs, or the identities of the compounding pharmacies which prepare these concoctions, it only stands to reason that there is a far-reaching conspiracy designed to protect the profits and reputations of these drug companies.

Think about it. If a multi-billion dollar corporation like Pfizer or AstraZeneca was revealed to be the source of the drugs used in botched executions, 125 million potential customers might be tempted to take their business elsewhere. That's a big chunk of profits walking out the door. If such is the case, it suggests that Big Pharmaceutical has the entire criminal justice system- and the Supreme Court- in its back pocket. You should be concerned. Very concerned.

When the American system of justice brings to mind the sick experiments of Josef Megele at Auschwitz, it's time to wake up and ask yourself, "Hey, just what the **** is going on here?" And when multi-billion dollar corporations have the ability to buy the Supreme Court, well, it just might be too late to wake up.

Dinosaurs roamed the earth during the construction of Stonehenge



What does the construction of Stonehenge, the invention of glass, and the domestication of horses all have in common? The answer, of course, is that all of these things occurred around 4,000 years ago. However, one scientist insists that he has proof that dinosaurs, particularly the triceratops, also roamed the earth during this time.

Rather than being rewarded for this jaw-dropping discovery, however, Mark Armitage- the scientist who made the discovery- was fired from his position at California State University at Northridge.

Is this a case of Creationist zeal run amok, or more proof of the systematic suppression of evidence by mainstream science? It appears that this issue may be resolved in a court of law. Armitage claims that he was fired because of his anti-evolution views, according to the July 22 lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court against Cal State Northridge.

This lawsuit comes in the wake of a discovery made by Armitage in 2012 while digging at the  world-famous Hell Creek Formation in Glendive, Montana. At Hell Creek, Armitage and his colleagues unearthed the largest triceratops horn ever found. But, even more astonishingly, Armitage examined the horn with a high-powered microscope and found soft tissue inside the triceratops horn with living bone cells, or osteocytes.

While the scientific community insists that triceratops became extinct around 65 million years ago, Armitage believes that the horn he examined came from a triceratops which lived around 4,000 years ago. In other words, the great pyramids of Egypt were already built when triceratops was living in Montana.

Before you dismiss Armitage's claims as a flight of fancy or wishful Creationist thinking, however, bear in mind that Armitage is a renowned microscope expert and a scientist with more than 30 published papers to his name. On Feb. 12, 2013, a scientific journal published Armitage's triceratops soft tissue findings; a few days later, Armitage was conveniently fired from his position. Even more telling is the behavior of one of Armitage's superiors, Ernest Kwok, who reportedly stormed into the lab where Armitage was working and shouted, "We are not going to tolerate your religion in this department!"

Attorneys from the Pacific Justice Institute who represent Armitage claim that Kwok was not among those who hired the scientist and that Kwok came on as his new supervisor when Armitage's old boss retired in June 2012.

Although neither Armitage nor Kwok were able to speak about the matter due to pending litigation, one thing seems certain in light of the scientist's groundbreaking discovery: The paleontology department at California State University at Northridge is a Kwok of shit.

MH17 Cover-Up: The MH370 Connection Revealed!



Shortly after the mysterious disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, WABC Radio host Aaron Klein stated: “Investigators would be wise to thoroughly examine the possibility of a missile attack in light of recent information about the global proliferation of such projectiles capable of downing civilian airliners.”

On his website, Klein Online, he cited “unverified claims” that a cache of surface-to-air missile launchers went missing in Ukraine. He made these statements in March-- long before many of the unfortunate passengers of MH17 even bought the tickets that would lead to their tragic demise.

Eerily, a little more than four months after Klein made this statement, MH17 was destroyed over the Ukraine, allegedly by pro-Russian separatists armed with surface-to-air missiles.

Even more astonishing than Klein's connection of the MH370 disappearance to the crisis in the Ukraine is the fact that, back in March, Malaysia's Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein revealed that Malaysian authorities received background checks from every nation which had passengers aboard MH370, except for two: Russia and the Ukraine.

"We have received passengers background checks on individuals from all countries except the Ukraine and Russia, which had nationals on board. So far no information of significance on any passenger has been found," stated Malaysia's Transport Minister at a press conference on the missing aircraft on Wednesday, March 19, 2014.

Russian and Ukrainian nationals on the same flight should raise eyebrows, along with the failure to disclose any background information on these mysterious passengers by Ukrainian and Russian authorities. But who exactly were these mysterious individuals? Victims? Conspirators? Or Both?


According to the Rakyat Post:

Only two countries have yet to provide any details regarding their nationals on board Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370, which went missing on the morning of March 8.

“As of today, no,” replied Malaysia’s Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein when asked if Russia and Ukraine had provided any information on their nationals.


When asked if he was pursuing the matter, Hishammuddin simply answered “of course” and did not elaborate further.


Foreign Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman, who was standing next to Hishammuddin at the press conference, was silent on the issue.






Here's what we do know about these three mysterious passengers:

Nikolai Brodskii- 43, Russia.

Brodskii, an elite scuba diving instructor, was a Jewish Russian national from Irkutsk who was returning from a vacation in Bali. According to Rabbi Aharon Wagner, head of Irkutsk's Jewish community, Brodskii "was close to Judaism". He was also a Russian diplomat attached to the Malaysian embassy.

Sergii Deineka- 45, Ukraine

According to his obituary, Deineka was a Ukrainian executive marketing administrator at the petroleum products industry LADA Ltd. in Odessa, Ukraine. Several sources identify Deineka as a pro-Russian sympathizer.

Oleg Chustrak- 45, Ukraine

It has been reported by several sources that Chustrak was not only a pro-Russian Ukrainian, but a former member of the Russian Secret Service, OGPU.

So there you have it, MH370 disappeared under mysterious circumstances while carrying an elite scuba diving Russian diplomat and two pro-Russian Ukrainians. And just a few months later, another Malaysian jetliner is said to have been blown up by a surface-to-air missile fired by pro-Russia separatists over the Ukraine. Nothing strange about that!

While many in the media are quick to roll their eyes at a possible connection between the two ill-fated Malaysian Airlines flights and those kooky conspiracy theorists who attempt to connect the dots, the mounting evidence seems to suggest that, in the very end, it just may be the conspiracy kooks who have the last laugh.
