  • Friend: Andy Kaufman Is Still Alive

    Friend: Andy Kaufman is still alive Could faking his own death be Andy Kaufman's biggest joke yet? In 1980, legendary comedian Andy Kaufman and his writing partner, Bob Zmuda, wrote a script for a film called “The Tony Clifton Story,” based on a character of Kaufman’s. On Page 124, there is a block of dialogue intended for Kaufman to speak as himself, informing viewers of Clifton’s demise. Among the lines: “On June 12, 1980 . . . Tony Clifton, at the age of 45, died of cancer at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Hollywood, California.” Four years later, at age 35, Kaufman himself would,...

    Why do merchants sometimes ask us for our ZIP code when we buy something? I recently visited the Mob Museum in Las Vegas, an interesting addition to Sin Citys attractions. I paid my admission with a credit card, prompting the museum ticket seller to ask me: Whats your ZIP code? When I paused for a moment, she added: Its for marketing purposes. As much as I had heard good things about the museum, I was unlikely to return soon as I live far from Las Vegas, so I was not anxious to receive subsequent marketing. She said it was okay...
  • Why It's Unlikely Someone Killed Michael Hastings By Hacking His Car

    Following the death of Rolling Stone and BuzzFeed contributor Michael Hastings in a fiery car crash, and the subsequent revelation of a panicked email he sent to his colleagues just before he died, this question has arisen: could someone have hacked his car? That's unlikely, and here's why. P Hastings' 2013 Mercedes C250 coupe crashed into a tree on Highland Ave. in Los Angeles around 4:30 am on June 18. The car burst into flames, and it took the coroner two days to positively ID Hastings' body. P It sounds like perfect fodder for a good conspiracy theory. After all,...

    Former U.S. National Coordinator for Security, Infrastructure Protection, and Counter-terrorism Richard Clarke told The Huffington Post on Monday that the fatal crash of journalist Michael Hastings Mercedes C250 coupe last week is consistent with a car cyber attack. There is reason to believe that intelligence agencies for major powers including the United States know how to remotely seize control of a car, Clarke said. On Saturday, Infowars.com posted a video of a talk presented by Dr. KathleenFisher, a program manager for DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, an agency of the United States Department of Defense responsible...

    The Week ^ | June 20, 2013 | Marc Ambinder
    This is a distasteful subject to write about. But Los Angeles talk radio is obsessed with the death of Michael Hastings and the insinuations that somehow he was killed by unknown forces attempting to silence him. Yesterday afternoon, I drove to the scene of the car crash. Several bouquets of flowers ringed a tree. I saw candles and notes. It's very sad. Trutherism (the catch-all term for instant conspiracies based on extreme mistrust and/or unfounded supposition) makes me angry. I would much rather have Hastings' life work be the subject of discussion and criticism than to hear L.A. radio jocks...

    LOS ANGELES (KTLA) The crash that killed journalist Michael Hastings was ruled an accident by police, but conspiracy theories continued to circulate on Friday. Hastings, 33, was killed in a fiery solo-vehicle crash in Hancock Park early Tuesday morning. ...Staff Sgt. Joseph Biggs told KTLA that he received an email from Hastings on Monday. Biggs had known Hastings since 2008, when the journalist was embedded in his unit in Afghanistan. On Monday morning, I woke up and I got an email, and its very panicked, Biggs said. He was blind-copied on the email, which was sent to Hastings colleagues....

    In today's broadcast, conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh said that the contrail spotted off the California coast by a KCBS news helicopter was a missile. "I've talked to experts" he said. "It was a missile." The comment puts him in line with many who doubt the administrations characterization of the contrail seen off the California coast as that of an airplane.

    The powers that be, they who control what news information we get, must think we are even more stupid than I previously believed they do. Im referring to the state-controlled big media and Pentagon cover-up of the source of the recent exhaust trail in the sky off the coast of California the one that was filmed by KCBS television personnel. Joseph Farah of World Net Daily published a pretty darned credible story last night, backed up by former military experts, suggesting that the source of the trail was a Chinese missile fired from a submarine. Worse, experts who should...

    On Monday evening, November 8, a helicopter-borne Los Angeles news crew shot stunning footage of what appeared to be a missile rising out of the Pacific about 35 miles west of the city. In the days since, competing theories have crowded the Internet as to what that news crew actually recorded. In a quick survey, nearly half of the technical experts with whom I corresponded were inclined to believe the jet contrail theory given tepid blessing by the Pentagon. My own research into the destruction of TWA Flight 800 off the coast of Long Island in July 1996, however, has...

    The Pentagon said Tuesday that a missile launch off the southern coast of California remained unexplained and that its mysterious origins meant that it was not possible to rule out any threat to the homeland, Fox News Channel reported. Earlier Tuesday, NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) and NORTHCOM (United States Northern Command) officials told Fox there was no threat, but Pentagon Spokesman Col. Dave Lapan would not confirm that because the military does not know what the missile was or where it came from.

    Towards the end of an outspoken 24 hours of media appearances, former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) appeared via phone on Fox Business Network with Melissa Francis and made a bold prediction about NSA leaker Edward Snowden's future. "I'm worried about somebody in our government who might kill him, with a cruise missile or a drone missile." "We live in a bad time where American citizens don't even have rights and that they can be killed," Paul continued. "But the gentleman is trying to tell the truth about what's going on, he is not defecting, there's no signs of that happening....

    On August 6, 2011, a military helicopter Extortion 17 carrying thirty-eight men (including twenty-five of the elite SEAL Team 6, five National Guard and Army Reserve, and eight Afghan commandos) was shot down over Taliban-controlled territory in eastern Afghanistan. They had been on a top secret mission to take out a high-value target. It was the worst loss of life in a single day since the war in Afghanistan began. Per a 1250-page military report, it was simply the result of a lucky shot by Taliban soldiers perched on top of a building. Per families of those killed and military...

Nabil Naim Abdel Fattah told Gulf News that Navy SEALs did not kill the al Qaeda leader who planned the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. U.S. special forces did not kill Osama Bin Laden. He detonated himself to avoid being captured after American forces raided his hiding place in Pakistan in 2011, Abedel Fattah explained to Gulf News.

    Andy Kaufman fans believe he's ALIVE after photos turn up showing mystery man in New Mexico 27 years after comedian's sudden 'death' In a tale no different from the likes of Elvis Presley sightings or Bigfoot, late comedy entertainer Andy Kaufman is said to be alive and living well in New Mexico. Kaufman, whose abrupt cancer death in May of 1984 left fans, friends and foes alike wondering if it were all an act even at his funeral, would be 64-years old if alive today. For some, mysterious photos taken of a grey-haired man in Albuquerque suggest he
