How Did ‘Zombie Cat’ Escape His Grave?

 

 

 

 

 

 

” There’s a new theory that could explain how a cat, presumed dead and buried, somehow clawed out of his grave and appeared at the neighbor’s house five days later.

” We have two cats and they play together all the time and they roam around with each other,” Ellis Hutson, the cat’s owner, explained. “He might have went looking for his brother and dug him up — but I have no idea.”

  Hutson has been confused and perplexed since last Monday when he found his black-and-white cat named Bart curled up in a ball and covered in blood in the middle of the road.

” He was stiff, wasn’t moving, no sign of life,” he said.

  Hutson — too distraught to grab the shovel himself — asked his buddy David Liss to take Bart to his final resting place.

” As far as I know he wasn’t breathing,” Liss explained. “I looked at it, and I looked at it, and I didn’t see the chest moving up and down or anything and I said, ‘you know, well look at the blood, it’s dead.’ “

  Liss said he put Bart in the ground under about a foot of dirt, right off the road from where Hutson found him “dead”.

  But Bart wasn’t dead.

  Five days later, the cat showed up at neighbor Dusty Allbritton’s home, and she called Hutson.”

A Detailed Guide

 

 

 

 

” I came across this article during the Veteran March on DC on October 13th. The grammar was pretty bad, so I did my best to clean it up.

  The guide in LONG, so it took me a while to get it in this good a shape. Whoever wrote it may not have been the best writer, but he or she certainly knows how to be prepared.

  If you find grammatical errors, I will probably spot them and have them fixed soon. I did as many as I could as fast as I could for the purposes of getting the article published ASAP.

  This article will start off assuming that the Reader is already subject to MARTIAL LAW; that is, the “suspension” of the Constitution.”

 

 

 

 

 

” Curfews, rationing of basic goods, enforced relocations, confiscation of firearms and supplies, and summary arrest/execution by soldiers, paramilitary police and other jack booted types wielding assault rifles.

  Basic survival tips will be followed with some detailed ideas on how this country should be run once we take over.

  IF you’re reading this before MARTIAL LAW is imposed by the current corrupt government, and IF you are reading this while you still nominally under Constitutional Law, it’s urgent you read from the beginning to end so as to appreciate the opportunities you currently have to not only protect yourself and yours, but to attempt to stop all of this from ever happening.

  Rule #1: NEVER TRUST THE GOVERNMENT UNLESS THEY SAY THEY ARE GOING TO KILL YOU … “

Panicked Super Rich Buying Boltholes With Private Airstrips To Escape If Poor Rise Up

 

 

 

 

” Super rich hedge fund managers are buying ‘secret boltholes’ where they can hideout in the event of civil uprising against growing inequality, it has been claimed.

  Nervous financiers from across the globe have begun purchasing landing strips, homes and land in areas such as New Zealand so they can flee should people rise up.

  With growing inequality and riots such as those in London in 2011 and in Ferguson and other parts of the USA last year, many financial leaders fear they could become targets for public fury.

  Robert Johnson, president of the Institute of New Economic Thinking, told people at the World Economic Forum in Davos that many hedge fund managers were already planning their escapes.

  He said: “I know hedge fund managers all over the world who are buying airstrips and farms in places like New Zealand because they think they need a getaway.” “

 

 

   We would guess that the likelihood of the “poor” rising up is less a motivation for the rich man’s prepping than is the possibility of the entire economic “house of cards” collapsing .

 Leatherman Launches Fashion Band With 25 Tools – And You Can Even Use It As A Watch Strap

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Forget carrying a Swiss Army Knife –  if you want to be prepared, all you really need is a bracelet.

  Portland-based Leatherman Tool Group is about to launch wrist wear that hides 25 different tools.

  Dubbed ‘Tread’, the bracelet is made of 17-4 stainless steel links which each hide two or three items such as wrenches and screwdrivers.”

Leatherman plans to start selling the bracelet sometime this summer, and also says it will include it in a watch design. No official pricing is offered on the tool, but one blog post claims it could be in the region of $200 (£130)

” ‘ The idea originated on a trip to Disneyland with my family,’ said Leatherman’s president Ben Rivera, who was an engineer with the company for 22 years. ‘ I was stopped at the gate by security for carrying a knife, when what they had actually seen was my Skeletool.

  I was unwilling to give it up, so they made me take it all the way back to my hotel room.’ ‘ I knew there had to be another way to carry my tools with me that would be accepted by security,’ he said.”

Sunday Marks The Premiere Of The Three Part Mini-Series “Sons Of Liberty” From The History Channel

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SONS OF LIBERTY, the three-night, six-hour event, follows a defiant and radical group of young men–Sam Adams, John Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock and Dr. Joseph Warren–as they band together in secrecy to change the course of history and make America a nation.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The Sons of Liberty sparked a revolution, the cast depicting them includes: Ben Barnes(The Chronicles of Narnia) as Sam Adams, a natural born leader with charisma and a penchant for mischief; Ryan Eggold (The Black List) as Dr. Joseph Warren, a doctor and man of conscience and integrity; Michael Raymond-James (Jack Reacher, Terriers, True Blood) as Paul Revere, a veteran who wholeheartedly joins forces with Sam Adams; Rafe Spall(Prometheus, Life of Pi) as John Hancock, the wealthiest man in Boston at the time; andHenry Thomas (E.T. The Extraterrestrial, Gangs of New York, Legends of the Fall) as John Adams, a lawyer and the conservative, smart cousin of Sam Adams. Additionally, Marton Csokas (Equalizer, The Lord of the Rings, Rogue) plays the ferocious General Thomas Gage who is sent to handle the colonial unrest in Boston; Emily Berrington (24: Live Another Day) as Margaret Gage; Jason O’Mara (The Good Wife, Terra Nova, Life on Mars) as General George Washington and Dean Norris (Breaking Bad, Under the Dome, Men, Women & Children) as the brilliant yet mischievous diplomat Benjamin Franklin.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Calling themselves the Sons of Liberty, they light the spark that ignited our revolution. While many of their names have become legendary, this group of young rebels didn’t start off as noble patriots. They were a new generation of young American men from varied backgrounds, struggling to find purpose in their lives. They were looking for equality, but they found something greater: Independence.”

Why Police Are Maiming, Killing With ‘Grenades’

 

 

 

 

” Following a drug tip, nearly 20 cops stormed a small apartment outside Atlanta in 2010. Invading officers found only a little weed, but managed to seriously injure resident Treneshia Dukes with a flashbang grenade—a police device that’s drawing increasing attention and controversy, Pro Publica reports. Cops often toss the flash-and-bang devices to disorient suspects during drug raids, but critics note that the grenades’ flash is more hot than lava.At least 50 Americans, including children and cops, have been killed, maimed, or injured by flashbangs that landed near them or went off too soon. Even Bill Nixon, an Arkansas man who used to make flashbangs for police (before an officer lost a hand demonstrating one to Boy Scouts) doesn’t get why cops use them regularly. “It boggles my mind,” he says.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Police in Little Rock, Ark., used them on 84% of raids from 2011 to 2013, although the raids usually just turned up minor drug paraphernalia. But a police rep defends flashbang use, saying that “what we see is a large service of warrants without gunfire.” Still, horror stories include a 19-month-old Georgia baby who suffered severe facial injuries during a drug raid when a flashbang landed in her crib, WOKV reports. A grand jury didn’t indict the officers involved but suggested two ideas that are going around: better police training (there are no national flashbang training standards) and fewer “no-knock” warrants that permit police raids. Meanwhile, Dukes—who suffered second-degree burns over her body—has filed a civil suit alleging excessive police force. “My skin is ugly, and I feel like I’m ugly,” she says. “When I talk about it, I just get angry.” “

Papa John’s Pizza Stands By Employee Who Shot Armed Robber In Self Defense

 

 

 

 

 

” Papa John’s Pizza is standing by a pizza delivery woman who opened fire Sunday on an armed robber in an act of self defense.

  The pizza franchise told FoxNews.com Thursday the employee, who hasn’t been named, will not be fired from the company. 

  The employee was making a delivery in Decatur, Ga., Sunday night when a man approached her vehicle, forcing her onto the ground at gunpoint, according to the DeKalb County Police Department. The woman, who had a gun in her pocket, was able to fire at the man while on the ground — striking the alleged assailant, identified as 24-year-old Donquaz Stevenson, in the face.

  Stevenson was later found in a neighbor’s yard and arrested, according to police, who said the pizza delivery might have been a setup. Local media outlets reported that a second suspect carjacked the delivery woman’s silver 2000 Honda Accord and remains on the run.

  Stevenson was charged with armed robbery and was being treated for a gunshot wound at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. “

A Judenrein Europe

 

 

 

 

” Had they not died as part of the Charlie Hebdo killers’ final act, I wonder how much publicity the murders of Philippe Braham, Yohan Cohen, Yoav Hattab, and François-Michel Saada at a kosher grocery store would have attracted. An Islamic fanatic killed another quartet of Jews at the Jewish Museum in Brussels last spring, and it was a big story for a couple of days, and then faded away. Over the last decade, the Continent seems to have developed a certain psychological ease with the routine murder of Jews. What remains of Jewish communal life in Europe now takes place behind reinforced doors and barbed wire, and the actual extinction of an entire identity group’s presence is discussed as calmly as the long-range weather. Forty-five per cent of British Jews say Jews have no future in Britain, and 58 per cent says Jews have no future in Europe.

  European leaders like M Hollande insist they’re able to protect the Jewish community – or at least hold the remorseless picking-off of their members to manageable levels. The leader of the continent’s biggest Jewish group is disinclined to take such assurances:

 

  In a letter sent to interior ministries around Europe and obtained by Newsweek, Rabbi Menachem Margolin, director general of the Rabbinical Centre of Europe (RCE) and the European Jewish Association (EJA) – the largest federation of Jewish organizations and communities in Europe – writes: “We hereby ask that gun licensing laws are reviewed with immediate effect to allow designated people in the Jewish communities and institutions to own weapons for the essential protection of their communities, as well as receiving the necessary training to protect their members from potential terror attacks.”

 

  The Jews are always the canaries in the coal mine, so they won’t be the last in Europe to discover that, when it matters, the state isn’t there for you. There is a memorable moment in Michel Houellebecq’s new novel Soumission, released the day of the Charlie Hebdo slaughter, in which the protagonist’s Jewish girlfriend Myriam decides it’s time to get the hell out of France and flee to Israel. And François says bleakly, “There is no Israel for me.” “

 

 

   Lacking the balls to do it themselves , the countries of Europe are subcontracting their latest attempts at the “Final Solution” to their Muslim immigrant citizens . Oh those “enlightened” Europeans … you cannot publish an image of the “prophet” Mohammad , but you can kill Jews with impunity … That’s certainly “progressive” …

Despite Decline In CPI, Food Index Increases In December

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Despite a decline in the overall Consumer Price Index (CPI) in December, the food index increased and the price index for meats, poultry, fish and eggs hit a record high, according to data released today from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

  According to the BLS, “The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) declined 0.4 percent in December on a seasonally adjusted basis. Over the last 12 months, the all items index increased 0.8 percent before seasonal adjustment.”

“ The gasoline index continued to fall sharply, declining 9.4 percent and leading to the decrease in the seasonally adjusted all items index,” said the BLS.

“ The fuel oil index also fell sharply, and the energy index posted its largest one-month decline since December 2008, although the indexes for natural gas and for electricity both increased,” said the BLS.

“ The food index, in contrast, rose 0.3 percent, its largest increase since September.” “

 

 

    Perhaps this has something to do with the record high food prices , after all Obama did promise that “electric prices would necessarily skyrocket” …

Dakar Rally: Matt Campbell Survives High-Speed Crash In Desert Race

 

 

 

 

 

” A Calgary driver has been released from a South American hospital after he was injured in a spectacular crash Saturday during an off-road rally through the Bolivian desert.

  Calgarian Matt Campbell is recovering in a South American hospital after a 174 km/h crash in the Dakar Rally in Bolivia. (elmartilloracing.com)

  Matt Campbell, 63, and two teammates were taking part in the legendary Dakar Rally when their vehicle became airborne and flipped several times before coming to a stop.”

 

 

 

 

” ” The race car was moving at a speed of 174 km/h when suddenly they found the water cut five feet deep.… There was not much to do but hang on and resist the crash. The affectations are quite notable, the car was completely destroyed,” El Martillo Racing said in a statement on their Facebook page.

  CBC News spoke to Campbell who says he’s a little stiff and black and blue from head to toe.

  Campbell says the rally relies on old fashioned technology instead of GPS systems. The driver relies on their navigator with a paper road book to manually count down the route metre by metre.”

” Campbell was behind the wheel at the time of the accident. Reports say the team tried to skim across a stream at high speed when the vehicle’s front end became immersed in the water — sending the car into the catapult.

  Campbell is the principal driver for the El Martillo Racing team. The team was sitting in 36th place at the time of the accident. “

Woman Papa Johns Pizza Deliverer Shoots Robber While Held At Gunpoint, And Now Might Lose Her Job

 

Papa John's Delivery Woman Shoots Robber

 

 

 

” On Sunday, a pizza deliverer for Papa Johns was held at gunpoint while making a delivery. The woman, not yet named by police, was forced to lay on the ground by two armed robbers. While on the ground, she was able to pull her gun out of her pocket and shot one of the robbers in the face.

  Donquaz Stephenson, 24, was the suspect that was shot. The other suspect fled, taking the delivery woman’s 2000 Honda Accord.

  One policeman interviewed by WSB-TV concluded, “She felt she had no other choice. She must have been in fear for her life and reacted.”

Wife Chops Off Cheating Husband’s Penis, Twice

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A jealous wife in China chopped off her cheating husband’s penis as he slept, then snuck into his hospital room after he had it sewn back on — and hacked it off again and tossed it out the window.

  Fan Lung, a dad of five, sealed his fate when he decided to use his wife’s cellphone to send his secret lover a hot and heavy email, Central European News reports.

  The 32-year-old forgot to log out of his account after the message was sent, which is how his 21-year-old wife, Feng — who is now under arrest for grievous bodily harm — came across the saucy exchange and snapped.

  The jilted wife went berserk, grabbed a pair of scissors, stormed into their bedroom and cut off his penis while he was sleeping.”

 

 

The woman’s second attempt was much more successful …

 

 

” Lung was rushed to the hospital, where doctors were able to save the appendage and sew it back on.

  But Feng was able to sneak into the recovery room, where she chopped his penis off a second time and threw it out the window, according to CEN.

  Despite desperate search efforts, authorities were unable to find Lung’s manhood. Police believe it may have been stumbled upon by a stray dog or cat, according to CEN.”

At Least 69 In Mozambique Are Dead After Drinking ‘Poisoned’ Beer. Is Crocodile Bile To Blame?

 

 

 

 

 

” At least 69 people who drank a homemade beer at a funeral in Mozambique over the weekend have died, health officials have announced. Authorities believe that the beer, a traditional millet-based brew called pombe, was poisoned during the course of the funeral.

  In addition to those who died, at least 169 people remain hospitalized, according to health officials. “As we prepared to determine the cause of death of people we began to receive a lot of people with diarrhea and other muscle aches. After that we began to receive dead bodies from several neighborhoods,” Paula Bernardo, a local health official in the country, told a state-run radio station in Mozambique.

  Officials believe that the brew was poisoned some time during the daylong funeral. Those who drank the brew only in the morning had no signs of illness, the Associated Press reported. But those who drank in the afternoon were sick by the next morning. The woman who brewed the beer was among the casualties, they reported.”

Son Jailed For Defending Abused Mum With Hammer Attack On ‘Jekyll And Hyde’ Dad

 

 

 

” A son who battered his abusive father with a hammer in a bid to stop him from attacking his mother has been jailed for six years.

  Benjamin Wilson grabbed the heavy weapon and raced upstairs at the family home after hearing crashing, shouting and commotion coming from the bedroom.

  Wilson, 22, then went into the room and beat his 46-year-old dad Craig with the weapon after claiming he was defending his mother.

  Teesside Crown Court heard how the young man could have been locked up for 12 years or more for the assault, which left his dad with brain damage and holes in his head and face.

  Instead he was given a reduced sentence after the judge considered provocation by the victim – who was described as a “violent nasty drunk”.

  But thousands have signed a petition calling on Wilson to be freed, saying the exceptional circumstances should have kept him from being locked up at all.”

Twenty-Nine Attempts By Female Officers On The Course, With None Passing

 

Marines-Female General

 

 

” Two female Marine officers who volunteered to attempt the Corps’ challenging Infantry Officer Course did not proceed beyond the first day of the course, a Marine Corps spokesperson confirms to the Free Beacon. The two were the only female officers attempting the course in the current cycle, which began Thursday in Quantico, Virginia.

  With the two most recent drops, there have been 29 attempts by female officers to pass the course since women have been allowed to volunteer, with none making it to graduation. (At least one woman has attempted the course more than once.) Only three female officers have made it beyond the initial day of training, a grueling evaluation known as the Combat Endurance Test, or CET. Male officers also regularly fail to pass the CET, and the overall course has a substantial attrition rate for males.

  The Marine Corps spokesperson, Captain Maureen Krebs, told the Free Beacon that the two officers, “did not meet the standards required of them on day one in order to continue on with the course.” Fifteen male officers also did not meet the standards. Of the 118 officers who began the course, 101 proceeded to the second day.  

  The Marine Corps, along with the other services, has been evaluating how to comply with the order to gender-integrate its combat arms specialties by the end of this year, or apply for special exemptions.

  The results of the Marine Corps’ experimentation thus far has revealed a pattern: Female enlisted Marines have been able to graduate from the enlisted School of Infantry’s Infantry Training Battalion in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, though at a lower rate than male enlisted Marines, while female officers have faced great difficulty in graduating from the course in Quantico. “

Time Capsule Left By U.S. Founding Fathers Laid Bare In Boston

 

 

 

 

 

” A 220-year-old time capsule containing coins, documents and other artifacts left by U.S. founding fathers Samuel Adams and Paul Revere was opened by Massachusetts officials on Tuesday.

“ The history of Massachusetts is the history of America,” Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin said before the box was opened, adding the items were symbols of the “great hope” of the country’s founders.

  The corroded 4 1/2 kilogram brass box, removed from beneath the state house last month, was painstakingly dismantled and unpacked by custodians at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts in a gallery hung with oil portraits of both men.

  Among the items in the box were two dozen coins including a 1652 Pine Tree Shilling struck by colonists in defiance of England, a bronze medal portraying George Washington, a silver plate made by Revere and colonial records and newspapers.”
