American Medical Association says mysterious”sonic attacks” on American diplomats caused their brains to inexplicably shrink.

Between late 2016 and May 2018, more than 20 American staff members in the US Embassy in Cuba showed unusual symptoms that have been attributed to a mysterious “sonic attack” on the Embassy. 14 more Canadian diplomats also reported symptoms. The attack was unique and inexplicable. This week, the Journal of the American Medical Association published detailed findings that have stunned the medical community. The brains of those that were attacked have shrunk by as much as 15% - and may still be shrinking. Scientists at the University of Pennsylvania examined brain scans of 40 individuals impacted by the “directional phenomena” attacks. They found that the area of the brain responsible for learning shrank by 5% or more. In addition, the areas of the brain responsible

Was the US-orchestrated attack against Syria a ruse implemented alongside Russian leadership?

When it comes to tit-for-tat between the world’s most powerful countries, it's a game akin to playing chess using human pieces. But sources are saying the recent United States attack against Syria may have been just that. Conspiracists are claiming that the US-led attack included not only France and Britain assistance – but cooperation from Russia too. It seems bizarre, but the proposed pieces do seem to fit the known events. According to sources, the US sought to prove their independence from Russian influence by attacking innocuous sites - with direction from Russia itself. In other words, US leaders worked with Russian leaders to determine a handful of targets in Syria that could be struck while causing the least amount of damage to Syrian and Russian

Who’s behind the mysterious sonic attacks on US Embassy personnel in Cuba? Hint: it’s not who (or how) you think.

Shifty sonic attacks leave no forensic evidence and thus, the only way to snag a perpetrator is to catch them in the act. But in the case of the sonic attacks on United States diplomats in Cuba, the lack of forensic evidence really doesn’t matter – the perpetrator is easy to surmise. The one that stands to gain most from the attacks is Russia – and the weapon they used wasn’t an acoustic weapon at all. The mysterious sonic attacks against US diplomats in Cuba leave authorities puzzled As of September 2017, officials believe there were more than 60 sonic attacks against more than two dozen US diplomats and family members based in Cuba. It is believed to be the first time a sophisticated sonic weapon has

Should we be concerned about this week’s uptick in earthquake swarms along Ring of Fire (e.g Mount Rainier and Yellowstone volcanoes)?

During days when some believe the start of the seven-year biblical apocalypse has begun, news of global unrest, political instability, earthquakes, and record-breaking hurricanes can cause concern. There may be more reason for worry this week after scientists report an unusual uptick in earthquake swarms at Mount Rainier, a large volcano near Seattle, Washington that is considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world. Mount Rainier is located about 54 miles south-southeast of Seattle, Washington. Its last recorded eruption was between 1820 and 1854. It is on the Decade Volcano list, a catalogue of 16 volcanoes considered to be the largest and most dangerous (i.e. potentially destructive) volcanoes in the world. Scientists believe a modern-day eruption would cause tsunamis and super-heated mud explosions that

The Russian purge – who’s killing Russia’s top diplomats and is the US involved

The highly efficient work of government assassinations Some countries are especially proficient when it comes to government sponsored assassinations. Initiated for a variety of reasons, sometimes as retribution, sometimes to “set an example”, but typically because of what the target knows, assassinations come in the form of plane crashes, car crashes, gunshots, “assisted suicide”, close-and-personal beatings, even imaginative forms such as binary poisons where two doses are required and given weeks apart (the poison disintegrates and appears as a natural compound after causing a fatal heart attack in the victim). Governments are brutally efficient extinguishers of human life. And when it comes to government assassinations, nobody is more attuned to the job than Russia. Are Russian government officials being assassinated and if so, by who? An unusual number of

Horrors of war: That time the U.S. Army buried hundreds (possibly thousands) of Iraqi soldiers alive

“I came through right after the lead company. What I saw was a bunch of filled-in trenches with people’s arms and legs sticking out of them… We could have killed thousands.” On February 24, 1991, in the first two days of ground fighting known as Operation Desert Storm, an estimated 8,400 U.S. soldiers began an assault against 8,000 Iraqi soldiers along a 10-mile-wide stretch of border between Iraq and Saudi Arabia, a seemingly impervious boundary that was laced with barbed wire, dangerous minefields, and fortified trenches. When reporters reached the area the day after the attack, they were told that not a single American soldier had lost his life. However, not a single Iraqi body was to be seen. War correspondent Leon Daniel said: “This ferocious attack

These giant arrows blanket the U.S.A. from coast to coast – what are they?

You’ll find them in a nearly straight line between the East Coast (New York) and the West Coast (San Francisco). Like an ancient cosmic map, they are spaced about 15 miles apart and placed on any available surface – the side of a mountain, across the desert floor, and in the great, flat plains of the central United States – anywhere where they can be easily seen from space. Although many are now covered with scrub brush, these giant concrete arrows, sometimes as much as 70 feet in length, leave backpackers and hikers who stumble across them scratching their heads. What are they? Where did they come from? Who scattered them across the USA? The giant arrows are remnants of the Transcontinental Airmail Route, a sequence

That time a surge in fogged pictures let Kodak discover radiation from secret nuclear testing was raining all over the world (1950’s)

The problems began in 1946 when Eastman Kodak noticed an uptick in complaints from customers regarding bad film. Customers were regularly calling Kodak and complaining about film they had bought coming out splotchy and fogged. Kodak was a powerhouse in the industry at the time and could not have their good name soiled. They set their top scientists on a mission to find out why. Equipment was tested and chemicals were analyzed but Kodak could find no explanation for the surge of fogged film that was ruining customers’ pictures. As a last resort, Kodak tested the film’s cardboard packaging – and they found large amounts of radioactive iodine-131. Kodak, who had some of the best scientists of the era on staff, traced the problem to fallout from American

Here’s why many believe World War III is all but inevitable as governments around the world struggle against economic collapse

Nobody wants another world war and up until the past decade, many thought the world had matured enough to avoid any new wide scale wars (if accomplished, we’d become the first civilization to eradicate war). Unfortunately, many prominent minds believe we are not only susceptible to war, but that World War III is inevitable – and closer than we may think. Comparing modern-day to 1914's pre-WW1 days It may surprise you to find that when the days leading to World War I are compared to modern times, the periods are eerily similar. For instance, Britain, like the United States today, was a superpower in decline and no longer able to act as the world’s protector. Germany, like China, was a newly formed economic powerhouse. France, like modern-day Japan, was

That time President Roosevelt was shot in the chest but went ahead, took the stage, and made his speech anyway

Four U.S. presidents have been assassinated – Abraham Lincoln, James A. Garfield, William McKinley, and John F. Kennedy. Even more survived attempted assassinations including Andrew Jackson, William Howard Taft, Theodore Roosevelt, Herbert Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and George W. Bush. Any presidential assassination attempt is highly unusual but the attempt to assassinate President Theodore Roosevelt stands head and shoulders above any other. Roosevelt was shot in the chest just before making a speech, but with blood seeping through his shirt and a bullet lodged in his chest, he took the stage anyway and made his speech. The Theodore Roosevelt assassination attempt Theodore Roosevelt succeeded William McKinley who himself was assassinated on September

Pacific Coast fishermen provide proof (photos) that Fukushima is contaminating U.S. fish with radioactive material

  Tumors on Pacific Coast fish cause concern for local fishermen When Hirasaka Hiroshi caught this terrifying large fish in the waters off northern Japan (see photo above), the catch added substance to Japanese fishermen’s concerns over the effects of the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident on local fish populations. Now, just days after we learned that radiation from the devastated Fukushima nuclear power plant is much worse than expected (exposure at the plant can kill a person in less than an hour), a geoengineering researcher reports that fishermen from the United States Pacific Coast are growing increasingly alarmed as they catch more and more fish filled with bloody, cancerous tumors. The situation is concerning because unlike people, tumors are rarely found on fish. In fact, up until the past

H.H. Holmes (Herman Webster Mudgett) – America’s first, and possibly most prolific, serial killer

“I was born with the devil in me. I could not help the fact that I was a murderer, no more than the poet can help the inspiration to sing -- I was born with the "Evil One" standing as my sponsor beside the bed where I was ushered into the world, and he has been with me since.” H.H. HOLMES Herman Webster Mudgett, aka Dr. Henry Howard Holmes or just H.H. Holmes, was one of the first documented serial killers in the modern sense of the word. His legendary crimes have been written about in several books, including Erik Larson’s popular The Devil in the White City, and featured in many movies and TV shows including American Horror Story: Hotel and the 2016 movie The

Best evidence to date? High-speed UFO captured on Border Patrol video over Aguadilla, Puerto Rico (April 25, 2013)

One of the most interesting UFO sightings to date came out of Aguadilla, Puerto Rico when, on April 25, 2013 at 9:20 PM, an unknown, high speed object began flying near the Rafael Hernandez airport. The unknown object so alarmed airport personnel that a departing FedEx commercial plane had to be delayed for several minutes until the object flew out of range. Fortunately, at the time of the sighting, a U.S Customs and Border Protection aircraft was in the area and caught the entire event on aircraft's on-board infrared video. The event would have remained secret except only a few months later, in October 2013, an official source (the source was identified and vetted but wished to remain anonymous) leaked the video. The video is unusual in that

The day the United States Vice President killed the Secretary of the Treasury

Bickering politicians are nothing new and in fact, the antics of today's politicians are tame compared to the escapades of yesteryear.  On July 11, 1804, the United States Vice President, Aaron Burr, reacting to insults from the former Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton, challenged his foe to a duel during which he shot and killed his opponent. Vice President Burr was charged with murder in both New York and New Jersey. Animosity between Vice President Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton Founding-father Alexander Hamilton and Vice President Aaron Burr had long held a storied animosity towards each other. Hamilton, a Federalist, had helped Thomas Jefferson secure the 1800 presidential victory against Republican Aaron Burr and often publicly ridiculed Burr in the newspapers calling him “unprincipled”, a “dangerous man”, and

New virus sweeps country – has wiped out more than 10% of America’s pig population with no end in sight

It struck suddenly, last May, at a hog farm in Ohio. Now, a year later, it has spread to 30 states around the United States, wiping out 10 percent of the U.S. pig population. The virus, known as porcine epidemic diarrhea virus, or PEDv, targets the lining of a pig's small intestine, causing extreme diarrhea. It's highly contagious, extremely potent (a tablespoon of PEDv is enough to wipe out the entire U.S. hog herd) and spreads by contact with infected manure or feed. Nearly every pig infected will die – it has already killed 7 million of America’s 63 million pigs sending pork prices through the roof. The PEDv virus is nearly identical to one that infected pigs in China’s Anhui province but scientists have been
