    It has been confirmed across the board that 18-wheelers were seen going into Syria before the war, crossing the border soon after Iraqi intelligence replaced the border guards and cleared nearby areas for their passage. There are also eyewitness reports of the trucks going into Syria, and eyewitness reports of their burial in Lebanon. The trucks with the weapons were tracked to three locations in Syria and Lebanon's Bekaa Valley, currently controlled by the Syrians, Iranians, and Hezbollah. Sources I've spoken with that have seen satellite photos of the movements confirm that the WMD in Syria are at military bases,...

    Oscar winners, sports stars and Bill Gates are building lavish bunkers — with amenities ranging from a swimming pool to a bowling alley — as global anxiety fuels sales and owners "could be the next Adam and Eve."SNIP Adds Mike Peters, owner of Utah-based Ultimate Bunker, which builds high-end versions in California, Texas and Minnesota: "People are going for luxury [to] live underground because they see the future is going to be rough. Everyone I've talked to thinks we are doomed, no matter who is elected."

    It's not the first underground city to be discovered in the region; there are some 250 known subterranean dwellings of various sizes hidden within the fantastical landscape. The two biggest are Kaymakli and Derinkuyu; the latter is estimated to have been able to house up to 20,000 people. Both cities have been known for decades. But this new underground town, hiding beneath a centuries-old castle on a hilltop right in NevÅŸehir, just might be the biggest. One early estimate by geophysicists put its area at nearly five million square feet and its depth at 371 feet. If those estimates are...

  • Saudi Arabia buys up land in Arizona; using desert water after drought concerns at home

    VICKSBURG, AZ - Like a desert mirage, the Almarai hay farm about 100 miles west of the Valley sprawls out on almost 10,000 acres. Buildings rise from the dust, and an endless stream of delivery trucks come and go. The bustle of activity is from alfalfa feeds as far as the eye can see. Saudi Arabian state-run media reports Almarai bought the land last year. That was after a Saudi government directive to conserve that nation's natural resources. Experts say underground reservoirs and ancient aquifers have almost dried up in Saudi Arabia after decades of modern farming. And since Almarai...
  • Mexico: Underground Arms Cache across the border from McAllen, Texas

    Gun Watch ^ | 11 July, 2015 | Dean Weingarten
    A recent confiscation of some rifles and ammunition made headlines from an AP report.  The arms were found near Reynosa, Mexico, not far from the border with the United States and McAllen, Texas.  While the AP report claimed that 33 "assault rifles" were found, the pictures from Mexican sources indicate that is an exaggeration.    This small cache would barely be noticed at a local gun club.  It is a moderate collection for an enthusiast.   The picture of the rifles on the table leaves much to be desired.  If anyone has access to a higher resolution image, please let me...

    The entrance is a wet hole in the earth little bigger than an animal burrow, obscured by thorny brush in a secluded wood in northeastern France. I’m following Jeff Gusky, a photographer and physician from Texas who has explored dozens of underground spaces like this one. Together we slither through the muddy hole into the darkness below. Soon the passage opens up, and we crawl forward on hands and knees. The glow from our headlamps wavers along the dusty chalk walls of the century-old tunnel, which slopes away from us down into the shadows. After a few hundred feet the...

    The Battle of the Sexes has been raging lately in DUmmieland. The angry DUmmie women (is there any other kind?) have been accusing the men--all men--of being sexist and misogynist and potential rapists. Some of the DUmmie men have dared to defend themselves, but in vain. Political correctness must win out, at all costs. Well, guess who feels left out? The LSMFT community, i.e., the Lezbo Sodomite Masochist Fag Transangered community. There must be Fifty Shades of Gay, and they all want to have their say. You see, in DUmmieland, to be fair, the Battle of the Sexes must...

    Tunnelers expanding London's Underground (Tube) stations have stumbled on a cache of more than two dozen Roman-era skulls. The skulls likely date from the first century A.D. and may possibly—just possibly—be victims of the famed Queen Boudicca's troops, decapitated during her uprising against Roman rule in 61 A.D.

    Plants Use Underground 'Fungal Internet' to Communicate by Jeffrey Tomkins, Ph.D. * Researchers have just documented how plants use underground fungal networks to warn neighboring plants of impending insect attack, uniquely illustrating the complex and highly designed interconnected cooperation found in nature. The research study—just published in the July, 2013 issue of Ecology Letters—is the first such report that confirms and reveals how plants have uniquely co-designed physiologies that internetwork with other plants using an underground fungus as an information conduit.1 This amazing and intricate system allows the plants to readily and effectively communicate as a community, like a natural...

    RCM ^ | 04/22/2013 | Jeffrey Dorfman
    When bailout negotiations among European finance officials and Cypress proposed seizing a portion of bank balances, an enormous outcry arose in many countries at the idea that people's savings could be confiscated by governments with essentially no warning. There have been whisperings in Europe recently that any future bailouts (Spain?) will also include such requirements. People should not be so shocked because wealth taxes or policies that act in a similar manner are much more common than they realize, even in the U.S. Wealth taxes are currently levied in Europe by France, Iceland, the Netherlands, Norway, and Switzerland, as well...

    Andrew Wilkow’s show on TheBlaze TV Monday took a break from analyzing the usual Washington dysfunction to put the spotlight on a news story that has been out of the headlines for some time, but not forgotten. Through the late 1960s to early 198os members of the far-left organization The Weather Underground bombed banks and various government buildings, led jailbreaks, incited riots, committed arson, and ultimately attempted an armored car robbery that left two policemen and a security guard dead. Formed in 1969 with the goal of toppling the U.S. government, some of the defunct organization’s members now hold positions...

    Leave it to legendary Walter Pincus from the Washington Post to flesh out a Request for Proposal construction project planned for Israel called Site 911. The oddly named project will cost up to $100 million, take more than two years to complete, and can only be built by workers from specific countries with proper security clearances. Palestinians need not apply. When complete the well-guarded compound will have five levels buried underground and six additional outbuildings on the above grounds, within the perimeter. At about 127,000 square feet, the first three floors will house classrooms, an auditorium, and a laboratory —...
