Repeat deadly storms are ‘unusual’

WASHINGTON — Weather experts said it’s unusual for deadly tornadoes to develop a few weeks apart in the United States.
But what made the two storm systems that barreled through a Missouri city and the South within the last month so rare is that tornadoes took direct aim at populated areas.
The tornado that hit Joplin, Mo., on Sunday killed more than 100 people and marked the nation’s deadliest single tornado in almost six decades.
The series of twisters that swept through the South late last month killed more than 300 people. Both disasters leveled entire communities.
Such a pair of weather events is “unusual but not unknown,” said tornado researcher Howard B. Bluestein of the University of Oklahoma.
“Sometimes you get a weather pattern in which the ingredients for a tornado are there over a wide area and persist for a long time. That’s what we’re having this year.”
And the threat is continuing, he said, noting more storms are predicted over the next few days.
Other than the death toll, there was nothing too unusual about the Joplin storm, he added. The conditions were right and thunderstorms were forecast.
Urban sprawl into the countryside has increased the odds that tornadoes will affect more people, said Joshua Wurman, president of the Center for Severe Weather Research in Boulder, Colo.
Forecasters can’t tell very far in advance where the path of destruction is going to be, added Greg Carbin, meteorologist for the Storm Prediction Center in Norman. A lot of tornadoes hit open spaces, so “when you move to major population centers, the death toll can climb.”
Carbin also noted that a single tornado hit in Missouri, while several tornadoes swept across six Southern states last month.

Mandatory Car Black Box You Get to Pay For: DON"T WORRY BE HAPPY


_________________________________________________________________________

Feds to Mandate Black Box on all New Cars

Kurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
May 24, 2011
___________________________________________________________________________________

This is a NO-BRAINER because you don't get a choice...just don't drive a new car!

The feds will mandate next month that all new cars be fitted with a black box, according to news reports. So-called black boxes record information about speed, seat belt use and brake application.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has been involved in the use of black boxes since their introduction. In 2006, the safety administration encouraged but did not require automobile manufacturers to install the systems and also did not set a single standard for the way data would be recorded, according to the New York Times.
In February, NHTSA administrator David Strickland said the government was considering making the technology mandatory in the wake of recalls of millions of Toyota vehicles. Strickland made the disclosure to a subcommittee hearing by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.
Now they will make the installation of these device mandatory under federal law. If we are to gauge the reaction of the corporate media, this story is not very important. Outside of industry and technology publications, the story was not reported.
Computer chip manufacturer Intel showed off its event recorder last year following the Toyota recall. “With new vehicles, there will very likely be video cameras inside and outside,” said Intel’s chief technology office, Justin Rattner, in a July, 2010, interview. “It’s not particularly new or stunning, but when you combine the cameras with GPS, you’re geo-tagging the video.”
In other words, your car – like your smart phone – may soon become a surveillance device and high-tech snooping will be mandated by the federal government.

Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries Engaged: 20.5-Carat Diamond VIDEO

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries: Anatomy of an Engagement

May 25,2011
www.eonline.com/
___________________________________________________________________________________
.

.
By now, you've heard the news: Kim Kardashian is engaged, with the boulder-size diamond on her finger to prove it.
But how, exactly, did America's most eligible bachelorette get taken off the market? Well, thanks for asking!
Kris Humphries managed to do what Reggie Bush, Gabriel Aubry, Miles Austin, Cristiano Ronaldo and (flashback alert) Ray J couldn't quite manage—secure Kim's hand in marriage—after both a stealth and rapid courtship. So let's take a look back together at how he managed such a feat:
2000: At just 19 years old, a pre-fame Kim Kardashian enters into an ill-fated marriage to music producer Damon Thomas.
2003: The couple divorces. It takes several years, but documents pertaining to the split are eventually unearthed and reveal allegations of abuse leveled against Thomas.
2007: Rumors as to the existence of a sex tape between Kim and then-boyfriend Ray J (that'd be Brandy's little bro) emerge, and are eventually proven true. Kim denied involvement in the film's release, and sued Vivid Entertainment for ownership rights, though eventually dropped the suit after reaching a settlement.
October 2007: The Kardashians become a household name, as Keeping Up With the Kardashians debuts on E! (You're welcome, world.)
2007: Kim begins a three-year, on-off relationship with Reggie Bush that is featured heavily on both her reality show and in the tabloids, and is plagued by rumors of engagements, which ultimately were unfounded.
July 2009: Kim and Reggie break up (take one).
August 2009: They're baaack!
March 2010: Kim and Reggie break up. For good.
April 2010: Rebound, thy name is Cristiano Ronaldo! Kim is spotted getting quite cozy with the international soccer phenom in Madrid; sources said the duo, despite living on different continents, were keeping in "daily contact."
June 2010: Eh, love is fleeting. Kim is spotted with Dallas Cowboys receiver Miles Austin after the duo meet and exchange numbers at an L.A. restaurant.
August 2010: After they're caught sharing a steamy Fourth of July kiss, Kim confirms the budding romance, announcing that she's "definitely dating" the footballer.
Thanksgiving 2010: Moving on...after a game night earlier in the week, E! News confirms that the reality starlet spent the holiday with Halle Berry's ex Gabriel Aubry.
December 2010: Amid rumors that Halle did not approve (and that custody of his child could be at risk) Gabriel and Kim abruptly cut ties.

December 2010: Kim first steps out with Kris, days after splitting from Gabriel.
Early January 2011: Just a few weeks after going public with Humphries, Kim meets the parents, flying out to a Minnesota Timberwolves game to cheer on her beau alongside Kris' sister, Kaela, and his parents. They later shared dinner together, and Humphries' rep said at the time, "Yes, they met and it was a wonderful meeting." First impressions are everything!
January 2011: Babies on the brain? Kim tweets a photo of Kris as a child, with the caption, "I want my son to look like this!"
Feb. 5, 2011: Kim helps Kris celebrate his 26th birthday with a surprise birthday dinner in NYC with his parents.
March 2011: Kim denies rumors that she and Kris are already engaged.
March 2011: Call it sisterly instinct. Khloé Kardashian Odom, who knows from quick courtships, tells E! News that Kim "thinks she is" going to marry Humphries, calling her sis a "hopeless romantic."
April 2011: Kim tells E! News that moving to New York (Kris plays for the New Jersey Nets, remember) is the "obvious" next step, but plays coy about any permanent plans. "We're doing good!" she said of her relationship. "I am very happy where I'm at...But as of right now, no marriage, nothing like that. We're happy."
Early May 2011: Just a week before Kris proposes (and two weeks before the world learns of the engagement), Kim again addresses rumors of an impending engagement. "I'm like, 'Seriously?'" she told E! News. "We laugh so hard. I mean, I guess it's flattering that they want us to get married instead of break up, so I don't know."
May 18, 2011: Humphries gets down on bended knee and pops the question to his girlfriend of roughly six months, asking for her hand in marriage with rose petals spelling out the question, "Will you marry me?" She of course accepts. The 20.5-carat diamond probably helped.
May 19, 2011: The day after the proposal, the couple (careful not to reveal their news) heads out on a date night in Hollywood, walking hand-in-hand in front of the paparazzi.
May 25, 2011: The couple announce their engagement to the world. "OMGGGGGG!!!!!!!" Kim blogged. "It's true! I couldn't be happier! Thank you guys for all the sweet messages!!! I finally found my missing puzzle piece, I'm complete."
No wedding date has yet been set, and the couple are currently en route to a vacation in Monaco.

Berger Woman Busted: Shoplifting Possession of a controlled substance in Union Missouri


_________________________________________________________________________

Shoplifting Suspect Caught with Possession of Methamphetamine

 May 25, 2011
___________________________________________________________________________________

Monday afternoon around three o'clock Union Police were called to Frick's Market in Union to investigate a shoplifting incident.
Upon questioning of the 24-year-old female suspect from Berger, police realized she was familiar to local officers, as her criminal record showed previous charges involving methamphetamine use.
Franklin County Narcotics Officer Scott Briggs arrived on the scene for back up and searched the car for stolen items from Frick's.
In the suspect's car driven by a male accomplice, police not only found Filet Mignon that the Berger woman admitted to stealing for a barbeque, but also coffee filters, lighter fluid and lithium batteries.
Except for the filets, these are common ingredients used to make meth. Further search of the suspect's vehicle produced a small amount of methamphetamine.
The Berger woman was taken into custody, booked and later released that evening for the possesion of a controlled substance.

TSA, DOJ Use Economic Terrorism in Texas to Stop anti-TSA-groping bill

Federal Blockade: TSA Holds Texas Flights Hostage

DOJ resorts to economic terrorism, lawmaker compares fight to revolutionary war against Mexico
___________________________________________________________________________________
Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Wednesday, May 25, 2011

An astounding Department of Justice threat to cancel airline flights to and from Texas, in addition to underhanded lobbying by TSA representatives, has killed efforts in the state to pass HB 1937, a bill that would have made invasive pat downs by TSA agents a felony.
HB 1937, a bill that would have made it “A criminal act for security personnel to touch a person’s private areas without probable cause as a condition of travel or as a condition of entry into a public place,” was headed for an imminent Senate vote in Texas having already passed the House unanimously 138-0, before the federal government stepped in to nix the legislation.
In a letter sent to Texas lawmakers, including to Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, Speaker Joe Straus, the House Clerk, and the Senate Secretary, U.S. Attorney John E. Murphy threatened to cripple the airline industry in the state if legislators did not back down.
“If HR [sic] 1937 were enacted, the federal government would likely seek an emergency stay of the statute,” Murphy wrote. “Unless or until such a stay were granted, TSA would likely be required to cancel any flight or series of flights for which it could not ensure the safety of passengers and crew.”
“We urge that you consider the ramifications of this bill before casting your vote,” Murphy added.
The fact that Murphy can’t even get the name of the bill correct is almost as disconcerting as the rampant mafia-like attitude of the DOJ in using de facto economic terrorism to shoot down the legislation.
Following a fiery debate in the Texas House last night, Senate sponsor Dan Patrick (R-Houston) pulled the bill, remarking that TSA representatives had been “lobbying” the Texas Senate in an effort to mothball the legislation.
“I will pull HB 1937 down, but I will stand for Liberty in the state of Texas,” Patrick said.
Patrick added that TSA officials had warned him passing the bill “could close down all the airports in Texas,” which he regarded as a ‘heavy handed threat’ by the federal government.
The staff of Rep. David Simpson said the DOJ had “thrown down the gauntlet” in using such stark language to oppose the bill.
“Either Texas backs off and continues to let government employees fondle innocent women, children and men as a condition of travel,” the staff wrote, “or the TSA [Transportation Safety Administration] has the authority to cancel flights or series of flights.”
“… 97 percent of people who go though the nation’s airports do not go through these offensive searches. And yet, a United States Attorney warns that flights to Texas could be shut down because TSA would not be able to ensure the safety of passengers and crew if agents could not touch genitals. Someone must make a stand against the atrocities of our government agents …”
In a point by point refutation of the DOJ letter, Simpson compared the battle against the TSA to the Texas revolutionary war against Mexico, writing, “Gentlemen, we find ourselves at such a watershed moment today. The federal government is attempting to deprive the citizens of Texas of their constitutional rights under the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution and Article 1, Section 9, of the Texas Constitution. If we do not stand up for our citizens in the face of this depravation of their personal rights and dignity, who will?”
The fact that the Department of Justice and the TSA have resorted to threats of economic terrorism in addition to underhanded lobbying techniques again illustrates the fact that the federal government is increasingly behaving like a criminal enterprise with total disregard for the Constitution.
The TSA’s initial response to HB 1937 was to claim that it could not become law because it violated Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution (Article. VI. Clause 2), a law that the TSA claimed “prevents states from regulating the federal government.”
In reality, this was a complete fabrication.
“The statement is false. Ignorance from the TSA is unlikely, so I’ll call a spade a spade. They’re lying. The supremacy clause says nothing of the sort,” reported Michael Boldin of the Tenth Amendment Center.
Here’s the full text:
This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding.
“So, in simple terms, what does the supremacy clause mean? Just what it says. The constitution is supreme. And any federal laws made in line with the constitution is supreme. Nothing more, nothing less,” writes Boldin.
As we have documented, TSA grope downs and body scans are now being rolled out on highways, street corners, public buildings, at sports events, and even at local prom nights.
Despite the fact that the federal government has resorted to thuggish intimidation tactics to kill the anti-grope down bill in Texas, this only marks the latest chapter in an epic states’ rights battle that has centered on the agenda of the TSA to become a literal occupying force in America, manning internal checkpoints that will litter the entire country.

State Attorneys General Ready to Out Big Banker Foreclosure Fraud

_________________________________________________________________________

Banks Face $17 Billion in Suits Over Foreclosures

online.wsj.com

___________________________________________________________________________________

State attorneys general told five of the nation's largest banks on Tuesday they face a potential liability of at least $17 billion in civil lawsuits if a settlement isn't reached to address improper foreclosure practices, according to people familiar with the matter.
The figure doesn't cover additional billions of dollars in potential claims from federal agencies such as the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Justice Department. State and federal officials haven't proposed a specific comprehensive settlement figure, but Tuesday's discussions represented the first effort to formally quantify potential liability.
Representatives of the nation's largest banks met in individual meetings on Tuesday with state and federal officials designed to highlight the potential costs they will face if a settlement isn't reached.
Banks and federal officials have made halting progress over two months to settle allegations of abuses related to mortgage servicing, and the numbers floated Tuesday indicate that the two sides are still far apart on the size of the penalty.
Banks have proposed a $5 billion settlement that would be used to compensate any borrowers previously wronged in the foreclosure process and provide transition assistance for borrowers who are ousted from their homes. Federal and state officials have dismissed that as insufficient. Some officials have pushed for a total price tag of more than $20 billion to resolve foreclosure-handling abuses that surfaced last fall.
State attorneys general from all 50 states and the District of Columbia announced investigations last fall. Tuesday's discussions highlighted the potential for lawsuits alleging unfair and deceptive practices if a settlement isn't reached.
The U.S. Trustee Program, a part of the Justice Department that oversees bankruptcy cases, has asked for an additional $500 million to $1 billion in penalties, according to people familiar with the matter. Officials of the unit have raised questions in several cases over the authenticity of foreclosure documents.

The latest development comes as state and federal officials are intensifying their scrutiny of other parts of the mortgage machine. Attorneys general in California and New York have announced wide-ranging mortgage investigations.

Author Will File Criminal Complaint Against White House Offers PROOF Latest Birth Certificate Forgery

Corsi To File Criminal Charges Against White House Over Obama Birth Certificate

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
May 24, 2011

Jerome Corsi has told a Cincinnati radio station that he is preparing to file criminal charges against the White House for producing a fraudulent birth certificate, as the controversial author of Where’s the Birth Certificate? closes in on the people within Obama’s inner circle he claims were behind the hoax. (SEE VIDEO BELOW)
“We believe the birth records released by Barack Obama on April 27th, the so called long form birth certificate, is fraudulent,” Corsi told radio host Bill Cunningham.
“I’m working on filing criminal charges on the White House, I think there will be criminal charges filed very soon for having fraudulently produced a birth certificate,” said Corsi, adding that he would seek an FBI investigation.
Corsi re-affirmed the fact that he was close to identifying the individual who played a key role in forging the birth certificate, as well as the source document which the White House used to create the composite fake.

VIDEO DETAILS:
WND's Dr. Jerome Corsi stated on the Bill Cunningham Radio Show that he's going to 'file criminal charges against the White House' over the latest birth certificate forgery. I listened to the live show and then went back to the radio station website to download the show podcast and lo and behold the interview with Dr. Corsi was scrubbed from the show podcast. I think maybe Bill O'Reilly gave them some tips on scrubbing show podcasts.. ;-)

The radio station in question is Cincinnati's 700 WLW which is owned by none other than Clear Channel Communications, which, by the way, is the parent company of Clear Channel Outdoor who refused to erect World Net Daily's 'Where's the Birth Certificate?' billboards two years back.

Just to be sure I downloaded all three hours from the 5/22/2011 broadcast. The first show hour is only around 20 minutes long as opposed to the second hour and the third hour podcasts being about 40 minutes long. The Corsi interview should be in the hour 1 podcast, also noted by a followup caller in the hour one podcast.

124 Dead as More Tornadoes Head Towards Joplin, Missouri

abcnews.go.com
___________________________________________________________________________________

The death toll from the monster tornado that struck Joplin, Mo., rose to at least 124 today, even as a new system of deadly storms moved across the Midwest.
Two tornadoes passing through Oklahoma this evening left at least four people dead and destroyed dozens of houses, according to state and local officials.
News of the storm system gave the search for survivors in Joplin new urgency.
The storms are predicted to move into the Joplin area between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m. tonight, according to Bernie Rayno, expert senior meteorologist at Accuweather.com.
The city is still staggering from the EF-5 tornado that tore through the city on Sunday, the deadliest single tornado in more than 50 years.
Rayno said that a strengthening jet stream combined with "directional sheer," meaning changing wind speeds at different atmospheric heights, are textbook factors in tornado creation.
"There are not enough quotes to describe what could happen tonight," Rayno told ABC News.
The threat of more tornadoes comes as search and rescue teams struggle to find survivors. More than 750 people were injured in the storm Sunday that caused widespread devastation to the small midwestern town.
Details have emerged that the massive tornado may have had two cyclones inside -- called "a multiple vortex."
"You don't go to bed at night thinking something like this would happen," Gov. Jay Nixon said this morning. "I was down here for graduation on Saturday, gym was filled with 4,000 of the happiest people you're ever going to see and the next thing I hear is that we've got a tornado coming and 24 hours later we're down here looking at this."
President Obama said this morning that he will visit the tornado-ravaged state of Missouri this weekend after he returns from Europe.
Speaking from the Ambassador's House in London, where he and Michelle Obama arrived earlier today, Obama called the outbreak of tornadoes "devastating and heartbreaking," while he reassured those affected by the storms that "every ounce of resources the federal government may have" will be used in recovery efforts.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the families who are suffering at this moment," Obama said. "And all we can do is let them know that all of America cares deeply about them and that we are going to do absolutely everything we can to make sure that they recover."
Obama also acknowledged that more storms are headed for the region today, as a warning of new tornado outbreaks was issued for the central region of the United States by an Oklahoma storm prediction center. Long-form, long-track, very powerful tornadoes are expected throughout Tuesday.
The greatest threat for tornadoes stretches from Dallas to Kansas City, according to the report. The area includes Joplin, Mo., where rescue workers are racing to salvage survivors from the wreckage left by a tornado that destroyed an estimated 30 percent of the city on Sunday.
The massive Joplin tornado was rated as an EF-5, the strongest classification, with winds ranging above 200 mph. The nearly mile-wide funnel touched down at 5:41 p.m. CT Sunday and blasted a six mile wide path through the city and left trapped survivors crying out for help this morning.
The tornado that struck Flint, Mich., on June 8, 1953 and killed 116 people had been the deadliest single tornado on record since the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration began keeping track of tornado fatalities in 1950.
The lethal twister has also made 2011 the deadliest year for tornadoes since 1953, with 454 deaths from 1,000 tornadoes so far, according to NOAA.
April also set a record as the deadliest month with 361 tornado-related deaths, according to NOAA's records.
