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.”

10 Acts Of Jihad In America That Americans Haven’t Heard About

 

 

 

 

 

 

” While the world’s attention is focused on the Islamic State, and its jihadis tell Americans that they will “drown all of you in blood,” jihad activity continues in the United States – although hardly anyone notices through the fog of mainstream media obfuscation.”

 

 

 

    Robert Spencer tells the whole story , complete with videos . Anyone that doubts that Islam is at war with the West is a fool . Meanwhile the Obama administration would have the public believe that the greatest domestic terror threat comes from “homegrown right-wing extremists” …

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ex-Cop Who Shot Man In Movie Theater For Texting Was Also Texting

 

Curtis Reeves

 

 

” This past January, Curtis Reeves, a former Tampa police officer, shot and killed a man who refused to stop texting during a matinee showing of Lone Survivor. As it turns out, Reeves was texting from the same theater just before his deadly confrontation with the man.

  Reeves’ son told police that moments before the shooting, he received a text from his father, letting him know where he was seated inside the theater. Several minutes later, as the son, Matthew Reeves, looked through the theater for his parents, Reeves killed 43-year-old Chad Oulson, who was reportedly texting with his young daughter at home. Oulson’s wife was also wounded in the attack.”

Tampa Police: Family Ate LSD-Tainted Meat

 

 

 

 

 

” Tampa Police say a family of four was hospitalized Monday night after eating meat contaminated with the drug LSD.

  Ronnie Morales started feeling sick after dinner on Monday, and the family called 911.  Upon arriving at the hospital, his 9-month pregnant girlfriend Jessica Rosado also started feeling sick.  Doctors induced labor, and she gave birth to a healthy baby boy.  

  At the hospital, two children, Elyana Serrano and Rayna Serrano, also started experiencing hallucinations and felt sick.  The children, along with Ronnie Morales, received tracheal intubation, and were hospitalized.  

  Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor says the victims had multiple symptoms. 

” It was the physical symptoms that they had, which included hallucinations, dizziness, rapid heart rate and difficulty breathing,” Castor said.”

 

Walmart issued the following statement:

 

“Like everyone else in the community, we are deeply disturbed about this situation and are taking it very seriously. We want answers and we’re committed to working with officials to get to the bottom of this.

We know our customers expect safe, quality food and we require our suppliers to meet the highest of food safety standards.”

” It’s unclear where and how the food was tampered with or if the tampering occurred after purchase. However, out of an abundance of caution, we have pulled the remaining product from the store.

We have been in touch with our supplier and they tell us they have no reports of similar incidents.

We are reviewing our store’s surveillance video to see if we can find any information that might assist in the investigation. At this point, we’re not aware of any suspicious activity.”

 

 

    This is on the heels of a massive recall just yesterday of tons of contaminated meat from California beef supplier Rancho Feeding Corp. that started back in January and continues to spread to as many as thirty five states .

Florida Sheriff Shuts Down Piers Morgan’s Gun Control Discussion During Interview

 

 

 

” Piers Morgan had the chance to interview the sheriff, Chris Nocco, of the county where a man was shot in a movie theater last week.

  Rather than just trying to get some information from Nocco on the crime, Morgan, of course, has to try to steer the discussion on to the topic of gun control.

  However, Nocco wasn’t having any of it. Nocco repeatedly reiterated the fact that the victim in this case was killed by another person, not a gun.

  Nocco went on to point out that, yes, some people are killed by gun violence, but there are just as many, or more, people who use firearms for self defense everyday (as we document on this website).

Nocco also pointed out that if guns are outlawed, criminals will still get them through illegal means.”

CAIR Now ‘Stalking’ Professor It Doesn’t Like, Trespassing In His Class

 

 

 

” On top of its epic struggle to understand the First Amendment, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has now shown that it apparently doesn’t understand elementary trespassing law.

On October 1, Samantha L. Bowden, CAIR’s communication and outreach director in Florida, drove about 80 miles from Tampa, Fla. to Orlando, Fla. to “stalk” University of Central Florida (UCF) professor Jonathan Matusitz by impermissibly sitting in one of his scheduled classes, according to the website Family Security Matters.

CAIR has quite a history of trying to intimidate Matusitz, a tenured communications professor. The Muslim civil liberties group doesn’t like Matusitz’s argument linking Muslim culture to radical Islamic terrorism.

In August, CAIR asked government officials in Brevard County, Fla. to deny the use of a county-owned meeting room to a group hosting a speech by Matusitz. CAIR called the group, ACT! for America, “an anti-Muslim hate group.”  “

Frightening Wasp Nest Containing More Than A MILLION Yellow Jackets Is Discovered In Florida

 

 

” A frightening wasp nest containing ‘more than a million’ yellow jacket wasps has been found in Central Florida.

Entomologist and bee removal expert Jonathon Simkins was alerted to the ominous mound, 1000 times bigger than the average nest, on a privately-owned hunting ground near Tampa recently and filmed as thousands of wasps tried to sting him. 

‘I have never seen a nest this large in my entire life,’ Simkins, who has been working in the insect business for more than 20 years said. ‘This is the prehistoric nest from the dinosaur ages.’ “

 

Florida Man Swallowed By Sinkhole Feared Dead

 

 

 

 

 ” A 36-year-old Florida man was feared dead on Friday after a sinkhole suddenly opened beneath the bedroom of his suburban Tampa home swallowing him, police and fire officials said.

Rescuers responded to a 911 call late on Thursday after the man’s family reported hearing a loud crash in the house and rushed to his bedroom.

“All they could see was a part of a mattress sticking out of the hole,” said Hillsborough County Fire Rescue Chief Ron Rogers. “Essentially the floor of that room had opened up.”

A sheriff deputy who arrived at the scene rescued the man’s brother who jumped in the sinkhole and tried to rescue him. Three other adults and a child were in the house at the time the sinkhole opened up”

” Jill Kelley, the Tampa socialite caught up in the David Petraeus scandal, sent an email to Mayor Bob Buckhorn scolding the police for releasing to the media phone calls that included her phone number and address.

The email, one of several between Kelley and Buckhorn since 2011, was made available by the mayor’s office Friday. The email was sent Wednesday, a day after Kelley emailed the mayor seeking help with media staking out her Bayshore Boulevard home.

In the latter email, Kelley said “my family has been put through the ringer, and my kids are scared. … And to put insult to injury, your police dept gave the local 911 tapes to the press!”

A deeper bench ? Hah! That’s funny.

“Conventional warfare: Why Democrats won ”

  “Or maybe it’s because
Democrats were simply blessed with a deeper bench of political athletes in 2012. But whatever the reason, Republicans were lapped by their rivals and may ultimately
pay in November for botching Mitt
Romney’s debut.”

” The Republicans have some fun at the president’s expense. “

  “Here was our favorite line from
Mitt Romney’s convention speech : “President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and to heal the planet. My promise is to help you and your family.”

  We liked it even better when we saw that the New York Times’s Nicholas Kristof had tweeted:
“Seriously, Romney’s speech esp troubled me by mocking rising seas/climate change. The dismissiveness was appalling.” Gaia is a jealous
Goddess, and She will not be mocked!

  It actually hadn’t occurred to us that the Romney line was a repudiation of global warmism. If so, that’s lagniappe. What we
enjoyed was the deft way in which Romney punctured Obama’s self-aggrandizement–by quoting his most immodest promise ever,
pausing for effect, then making an almost comically modest promise of his own.”

“” ‘When someone isn’t doing
the job, we’ve got to let him go’

   “Clint Eastwood conducted a comical question- and-answer session with an empty chair —
which stood in for President Obama — at the Republican National Convention as he explained why he thinks “it’s time for somebody else to come and fix the problem.” “We own this country . . . We’re the best and we
should not ever forget that,” Eastwood said of the United States and Obama, before appealing
to voters of all political persuasions. “When someone isn’t doing the job, we’ve got to let [him] go.”

Laughter ensued …

” “What do you want me to tell Romney?” Eastwood said, looking at the Obama chair. “I can’t tell him to do that. He can’t do that to
himself. You’re absolutely crazy. You’re being as bad as Biden. Of course, we all know Biden is
the intellect of the Democratic Party. Kind of a grin with a body behind it.”

” MSNBC protects the meme any way it can “

  “The cast and management at MSNBC really, really want their viewers — all 20 of them now,
I believe — to understand that the Republican Party is raaaaaaaaaaaacist , and that the GOP convention is nothing more than a bunch of white men talking and applauding. They are so
desperate to sell their meme latent Republican racism that they simply averted their eyes every time a speaker that didn’t fit their lone talking point took the stage:

“GOP platform adopts Internet freedom plank

“Republicans vowed to fight against efforts that would give international or intergovernmental
organizations more control over the Internet in their party platform, approved on Tuesday. “We will resist any effort to shift control away from the successful multi-stakeholder approach of Internet governance and toward governance
by international or other intergovernmental organizations,” the platform reads.

” The War on Drugs: Because Prohibition Worked So Well “

“Forty years ago, the United States locked up fewer than 200 of every 100,000 Americans. Then President Nixon declared war on drugs. Now we lock up more of our people than any other country — more even than the authoritarian regimes in Russia and China.

A war on drugs — on people, that is — is unworthy of a country that claims to be free.

Unfortunately, this outrage probably won’t be discussed in Tampa or Charlotte.”
