Bizarre “inverted-tornado” cloud appears in Mexican sky

Residents of Michoacán, Mexico, were treated to a baffling meteorological anomaly around 6:00 PM on Friday January 20, 2017. Thousands of citizens witnessed a bizarre cloud which looked like an inverted tornado with a strange bright light beaming inside. It was estimated to be several miles high and at one point, several miles long. The cloud was visible for more than an hour at which point it transformed to an elongated shape with two mirror-image rudder-like appendages leading its advance. Witnesses from Uruapan to Morelia, in the central part of the Mexican state, reported seeing the unusual cloud. Mexican social media networks lit up with photographs and video of the event. Many though it could be “a spacecraft disguising itself to look like a cloud”. Others noted

Every top official has been arrested in this Texas city over a federal corruption case

Crystal City, Texas, a south Texas city of over 7,000 people, is located just fifty miles from the U.S.-Mexico border. This week we find that Mexico's traditional culture of corruption has spilled across the U.S. border and infected the city at its highest levels. Crystal City’s mayor, city manager, mayor pro tempore, a councilman, and a former councilman were all arrested under an indictment obtained by the U.S. attorney’s office in San Antonio. A second councilman was charged in a separate case. That leaves just one councilman not facing felony federal charges. Once billed as the “Spinach Capital of the World”, Crystal City has roiled in allegations of misuse of public money. The indictment confirms that the town’s leadership used their positions to “enrich themselves by soliciting and accepting

Was the Sean Penn/El Chapo Rolling Stone interview a covert CIA/NSA/DEA operation?

The capture of Joaquin Archivaldo Guzman Loera, aka “El Chapo” or “Shorty” The world was shocked on January 8, 2016 when a humiliated Mexican government announced it had re-captured Mexican drug kingpin El Chapo, six months after his second escape from a high-security Mexican prison. His capture occurred during a violent three-hour battle near the seaside city of Los Mochis in his home state of Sinaloa. According to one witness who asked to remain anonymous: “’You could hear intense gunfire and a helicopter; it was fierce.” Five suspects were killed and six others arrested during the siege, yet another shocking revelation was in store. The day after the capture, Rolling Stone magazine published a related article – an exclusive clandestine interview with El Chapo conducted by popular American actor,

Employees at haunted Mexico City International Airport proffer photos of little-girl ghost who regularly haunts their airport

  Reports of the ghost of a 7-year-old girl roaming the grounds of Mexico City International Airport (Aeropuerto Internacional Benito Juárez) are not new. The spirit has been seen by employees in and around the terminal and in the airport’s “cemetery of planes” where unrepairable damaged parts of aircraft are thrown away. Several months ago, a guard took the picture above of what he says is the little-girl ghost peering through the window of an abandoned plane. Now this week, another photo has surfaced showing the ghostly image of the girl in front of the airport’s entry. Most witnesses describe the little-girl ghost wearing a long nightgown and cap (reminiscent of the Victorian era) and often she is seen carrying a ball in her hand. Airport security note that the

Truck containing lethal radioactive cobalt-6o hijacked in Mexico. Thieves will “without a doubt die”

Well this can’t be good… The Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency announced today that a pair of thieves in Mexico have stolen a truck containing highly dangerous atomic materials – just the sort of material that would be used with explosives to construct a radioactive dirty bomb. The lethal substance, cobalt-60, was was being transported in specially-designed sealed secure containers and had been previously used in radiation therapy to treat cancer.  The truck was transporting the material from a hospital in Tijuana to a waste center when it was stolen on Monday in the town of Tepojaco, just outside Mexico City. The drivers, who were sleeping in their crane-equippped 2007 Volkswagen truck at a gas station, told authorities they were held up by a pair

“Island of the Dolls” – site of little girls death is adorned with hundreds of creepy, dead-eyed dolls hanging from the trees

It’s a common theme in horror movies – creepy, dead-eyed dolls dangling from a cord hung from a tree. If the scenario gets your chest a thumping, you may want to visit Mexico’s Isla de las Munecas, or Island of the Dolls, where the entire island looks like it came straight from a horror movie film set. And the story of how the strange and scary island came to be is even creepier than the hundreds of eerie mutilated dolls dangling from the island’s trees. A lonely hermit experiences tragedy Located just south of Mexico City, Isla de las Muñecas is a tiny island situated in the popular canals of Xochimilco (“place of flowers”), a system of canals and artificial floating islands (known as chinampas) built upon

UFO appears to fly directly into Mexico’s active Popocatepetl volcano (VIDEO)

There's an interesting video making the rounds today. I see a couple of potential explanations (reversed video, a commercial airlines flying behind the volcano, etc.) but nothing definitive meaning, yeah, it's a pretty interesting UFO shot. The video was shot on May 30, 2013 at around 8:30 PM local time at Mexico's Popocatepetl volcano located about 40 miles south of Mexico City. It's the latest in a series of UFO sightings that have taken place near the central Mexico active volcano since 2012 (MUFON has proposed explanations for the majority of the previous sightings). Most of the videos shot to date come from Mexico's media company, Televisa, which monitors and films all daily activity around the volcano. What is most interesting about this video is that the

Inside the Mexican drug cartels – how to live rich in a poor country

About the Mexican drug cartels Drug cartels, criminal organizations developed primarily for the purpose of promoting and controlling drug trafficking operations, have expanded into other criminal areas including arms dealing, prostitution, racketeering, extortion, assassinations, and human slavery. Whereas they once agreed to cooperate with each other in the production and distribution of drugs (i.e. a true cartel), they now war with each other on a regular basis in a battle that has cost an estimated 700,000 lives.  Their geographical boundaries, which once stopped at the Mexican border, have expanded into Africa, South America, Europe, and of course, into the lands of their nearest neighbor, the United States.  Their profits from their criminal business are enormous.  In the suburban town of Badiraguato, near the center of the

Confirmed – Mexican drug cartels have crossed the border and are setting up operations deep inside U.S. borders

Top law officials have indicated that the notorious Mexican drug cartels, who once rarely ventured onto U.S. soil, have begun moving into United States and are setting up (or have already set up) operations in at least nine none-border states.  This conclusion was reached by  the Associated Press after they reviewed reams of federal court cases and government drug-enforcement data, plus interviews with many top law enforcement officials. The head of Chicago’s DEA office, said “It's probably the most serious threat the United States has faced from organized crime.”  In fact, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, head of the deadly Sinaloa cartel, is now listed as the city’s Public Enemy No. 1, a distinction previously held by the famous Chicago-based gangster Al Capone.  The DEA is convinced

Archaeologists find hundreds of human skulls with partial spines attached in suspected Mexican “sacrifice” site

Archaeologists from Georgia State University were digging an empty field in Mexico when they ran across an amazing discovery – hundreds of thousand-year-old human skulls with just one or two vertebra attached indicating the site may have been a religious ritual site used for human sacrifices.   The archaeologists made the find in an area that was once a huge, isolated lake (Lake Xaltocan) located many miles from the nearest major city of the day.  The general area in which they were found surrounds the kingdom of Teotihuacan (home to the Pyramid of the Sun), about 30 miles (50 kilometers) from Mexico City. The vast ancient kingdom flourished from around the year 200 to 650, though who built it remains a mystery. The skulls were found

The mysterious New Mexico “brilliant flash of light” event (August 15, 1999)

At 11: 18 PM on August 15, 1999, the residents of the southwestern United States experienced an intense, unimaginable bright flash of light which lit the area brighter than daylight for 2-3 seconds.  At the same time, people from all across  the  western  U.  S.  began calling the UFO hotlines reporting their sightings of an unidentified object travelling overhead.  Most reported a hovering ball of light. Calls came in from  New  Mexico,  Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Montana, Texas and Mexico.  21 minutes later, a second (less bright) flash occurred. According to the MUFON journal from that month: “What makes this first flash so interesting, and a fact which seems to rule out any type of meteoric event, is that a second, and similar, flash occurred, approximately

Ancient “alien” skulls found in archaeological dig in Senora, Mexico – cranial deformation?

There a new reports just coming out about odd “alien” skulls found in a 1,000 year-old  ancient burial site in Senora, Mexico.  The site was first discovered in 1999 in the northwestern Mexican state of Sonora (at a site known as "El Cementerio") while workers were digging to install an irrigation canal.  Researchers have just begun investigating the site but have already found 25 human remains, 13 of which have the odd-shaped deformed skulls.  The researchers are stating that the odd-shaped skulls are a result of purposeful “cranial deformation” or shaping of the skull, possibly as the result of an ancient ritual practiced.  The remains have been dated back to 945 A.D. to 1308 A.D. Archeologists noted: “Misshapen skulls discovered on sites are fairly uncommon, especially as
