Zanjan: That should be in the Lost in a Lost World topic - they can't even handle the long list of endangered species.
The WWF says between 200 and 2,000 species have reached extinction each year.
chronology: Very sad Zan. I think that teenage girl up in Sweden is always giving speeches on that.
If they do bring these apex predators back to life U.S.P.S. will have to close off large parts of the National Parks. Imagine a Tiger as big as a SUV and hunting in packs. Park Rangers will probably be trained to use M60 machine guns.
chronology: Live news from Washington DC.
Congress overrun by Protestors. Shots fired inside Congress. Live TV around the world showing Capital Police Officers fighting off protestors kicking in doors and trying to take over Congress.
chronology: Kamala is safe.
Report's that VP Elect Kamala Harris has been kidnapped and is being held by protestors are incorrect. Ms Harris is safe and in a Safe Room.
The crisis is growing worse by the moment as State Troops head for Washington DC to break up the protests.
Around'the world people are urging American's to avoid violence and go home.
At the moment some protestors are saying that they will fight State Trooper's. Again, people around the world are urging American's to go home and avoid any further violence.
But great news, Kamala is safe.
chronology: Washington DC update.
Virginia National Guardsmen en route to Washington DC. One woman shot inside Congress is seriously injured.
Again VP Kamala is safe.
American's are being urged to avoid violence. 'A House Divided cannot stand' Old Abe Lincoln.
chronology: Tragic death of woman in Congress.
The woman shot in Congress today is said to have been a 15 year U.S. Air Force Veteran security officer. She is reported to have been amongst a group of protestors smashing their way through windows to storm the capital building.
Every care and attention was given to her when she was injured and she was rushed immediately to hospital by Washington EMT. But sadly she died in hospital.
Details of how the tragedy happened are still being collected by Capital Police investigators. People are declaring prayers and sympathy for the woman's family.
chronology: Ashley Babbit named as young woman shot in Capital Building.
Graphic video shows Ashley apparently being shot. Windows inside the House had been smashed out. And a woman identified as Ashley can be seen attempting to climb through a window. She is told to get back. But she continued to climb through the window. A shot rang out and Ashley falls back to the floor.
Ashley may not have realised that she was in danger because she stood next to two police officers as she began climbing through the window.
A unidentified man inside the House where Ashley was attempting to break into moves forward and shoots Ashley.
The justification for the shooting may have been based on the fact looting was taking place in the House at the time. In some circumstances Police, home owners, and soldiers have the right to shoot looters on sight if they are engaged in looting. If the shooter can convince the Courts he was reasonably convinced Ashley was looting he is not likely to be convicted of any offence.
chronology: Blackie. It is very distressing and our thoughts and prayers are with Ashley and her family at the moment. But it does need to be considered that this was a violent premises invasion, not a demonstration. Lawmakers Office's were being looted. There were confidential documents on tables. Congressmen and women are snowed under with work at the moment. They don't have chance most of the time to lock away all the paper's they have to read and sign. Not to mention their laptops and Android cell phones. We forget just how exhausted most men and women in Congress are most of the time.
And Capital Police Officers were faced with a charging mob invading and grabbing anything they can steal. Brave Police Officers did what needed to be done.
But God Bless America, and Peace to Ashley and her family.
chronology: Viking's in California?
Many Americans have no problems believing Viking's made their way to North America 1200 year's ago. There is evidence to suggest the Vikings Dragon Boat's visited the North East. But California? That sounds like a story told down the Old Mississippi River in the cafés.
First is it possible Viking's reached California? Definitely not, say scholar's, it's nonsensical. Yes, say Alt History Buffs. The Viking's could have traveled the same route Ancient Chinese trader's made their way into the Mississippi River. They went overland from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific. And then travelled North along the California Coast. It is likely that the United States Coast Guard would be pretty skeptical that anyone, Viking's or anyone else could sail down the East Coastline, round Florida and then on to Mexico in a Small Dragon boat. Storm's and strong ocean currents are deadly. But in theory it is possible.
The Idea of Viking's in California comes from old First Nation stories of their meetings with sailor's from a distant land. Historians always presumed this was early encounters with Spanish and Portuguese sailors. But one man has suggested it could have been Viking's.
Don't know wirreclubbers. Most likely the only Nordics visiting California are modern tourist's from Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.
Blackshoes: The Officer that shot that Young woman in the throat wasn't brave He was scared to death because he was afraid that she was going to get in WOW what threat. seriously!
The entire episode at the Capital was a total debacle!
It should have been handled better from the word go!
She didn't need to die and trump should have conceded sooner!
Would have, should have, could have,
chronology: Blackie, it is definitely sad and distressing that this poor woman died. But mobs were kicking in doors and windows in the House. They were grabbing handfuls of Congressman's documents. There was even talk of VP Kamala being held hostage.
Blackie there was knife held to the throat of America. This is not the American way.
American's are reasonable people, but if you asked most Americans what they think of this sad event, they will tell you that, yes we all feel for her loss, but what was she doing smashing her way into the House, kicking in doors and windows with a bunch of looters.
Blackie, the Officer stood his ground and defended the heart of American Democracy. Had he ran away, he would have betrayed everything America holds dear. Ashley was in full control of event's, she chose her fate.
Blackshoes: The Officer shot an unarmed young woman trespassing! Because he was afraid! In other words a coward! If not a coward? He's a satanist!
Was it wrong or illegal maybe not? Was it a reasonable and legitimate killing?
No, it wasn't necessary or reasonable. It was an overreaction and cruel act
chronology: Blackie, you are normally a grounded and sensible person. I cannot believe you are writing such incoherent opinions. If Congressmen and women and all Staff in the House that day decide to sue the House for failure to provide a safe work environment, then you will appreciate just how serious all the mayhem was. Even some junior Staff members will be awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars damages for the trauma they suffered that day. Not to mention lifetime free medical care for PTSD.
The Police Officer who was compelled to use lethal force is an American hero. He protected lives and the security of Government documents and computer's that day. The City of Washington DC should support him all through future legal procedures. The man is an American hero.
No disrespect at all to United States Government Office's, am sure they know their professions, but there really does need to be a full on investigation into the safety of all workplaces for Federal Employees. Congressmen and women, and Senators receive death threat's every week, and for mobs to just push their way in like they did at the House is disturbing. But thank God there was a Police hero who stood his ground.
And let's not forget Ashli. She was on the side of righteousness and the Angel's for 14 in serving the United States. Sadly she was seduced by the wiles of the Devil and led to her death. And I mean the Devil, not President Trump.
chronology: All over the world people were shocked at the scenes from Washington Zan. It will be years until the blow back from all this goes away. The FBI will be determined to make people accountable for their actions. The Lawyers are going to be negotiating for proper financial restitution for younger House Staff traumatised by the aggression and vandalism. Money can never make things the same, but it can show people respect Government workers.
And let's not forget Ashli. Goodness knows why folks like her and Tim MacVeigh become such rage filled people. But it is sad a woman who served the Stars and Stripes turned her back on her own Government. But Americans I've blogged with are not in a forgiving mood at the moment. Unity and respect for core patriotic values mean a lot to many Americans, and Ashli is seen as betraying fellow Americans. But the Right Wing Malitia like people see her as a hero.
Fractured fairy tale: Pitty you wernt ouraged when they Took over police stations in seattle and they stormed the govenment Buildings , What was it Described back then by the Mayor a summer of love ,
yeah thow money at it that will fix it
chronology: Portland has more strip clubs per head of population than anywhere else in the Western World. A curious statistic. You would think it would be Hamburg or Amsterdam, or Las Vegas. But no, a few years ago Portland held the title. Feel free to go to Portland and throw money to the ladies entertaining men in the bars there.
Still not sure I believe they got that statistic right, surely Las Vegas is the capital of stripping in America? But no, Portland Oregon is where the entertainment is, or was before this big lockdown with covid.
chronology: If you went to Wyoming you took a wrong turn.
In the movie Close Encounters of a Third Kind, there is a dramatic where coordinates are received to go meet the Aliens when they land.
A globe is examined and everyone heads for Devils Mountain in Wyoming. Well they would have missed the Aliens, the coordinates actually give directions to Denver Airport, Colorado.
The Airport is a pretty big place, so if you are good with GPS then you could find the exact place on the airport.
Conspiracy Buffs are still phazed by the discovery. It was noticed years before Denver Airport became the Conspiracy Central of Colorado.
Well wireclubers, if you plan to pack your bags and track down the exact spot at the Airport, then obey all the safety rules and regulations. According to some folks Colorado is the most security locked State in the Union, all the time. Although you are never likely to notice the U.S. Intelligence presence there. So be aware and don't go being too inquisitive with recording and video equipment.
Coincidence? Or is America really meeting Aliens on secret runways?. If nothing else this must be the most convenient conspiracy theory to check out. The secret is said to be right in the airport you land on.
chronology: This date in 1901 the first Texas Oil Gusher is struck. The Oil strike is considered the beginning of the American civilian transition to an oil based economy.
Before the strike in Texas American business doubted oil could be found in plentiful enough reserves to fuel American industry. But the Texas Oil fields convinced businesses oil was the way forward.
In todays money the first big oil gusher sprayed 50.000.000. Dollars worth of oil into the air before pressure eased off. It made quite a mess as well with around 1.000.000. Barrels of oil flooding the drill site.
chronology: Going, going, gone.
While Americans are debating controversial protests on TV and the Web. Not so much a crisis disagreement on just what is acceptable in protesting. Great Britain is facing a crisis in the usual way, emigration.
New figures in since the Brexit vote show a huge increase in the number of people leaving the UK to take up citizenship in other countries. One expert observed 'these numbers are crisis level figures. They are the kind of numbers you see in countries that have just lost wars or suffered economic collapse'.
The numbers do not even include the wave of people who leaving Britain right now the Official exit of Britain last week from Europe.
But don't worry Americans, the Brits will not be after jobs or welfare in the USA. The people leaving are generally retired people with comfortable private pensions and savings. So if they settle in your town they will be buying homes and paying taxes.
America is popular with Brits heading for safer futures, but France and Spain are the popular destinations.
The so far uncollected numbers of Brits leaving right now is said to be high. People are convinced Britain is facing a bleak future. The prospect of Scotland leaving the UK is also unsettling to better off Brits. Being restricted to England with little freedom of movement is just too boring for many people to handle.
chronology: Seeing Double.
An old interview given by Elvis in 1974 has been discovered that has conspiracy buffs fascinated. It appears to show a double standing in for Elvis talking briefly to reporters. The eyes are the wrong colour for Elvis, and he seems to be confused when asked about his past.
Security doubles are common for global superstars like Elvis. They are used to throw off fans chasing them after concerts, and paparazzi chasing them. But they are never, ever used in Press Interviews as no body double can can stand up to close inspection by reporters, or get the accent right, or mannerisms etc. So why are conspiracy buffs so excited about this interview? It is because they claim the double is really Elvis Presleys twin brother who reportedly died at birth. They claim he never died, but like some babies back then was given away in secret adoption. If he grew up in Tennessee, he would have the same accent as Elvis, and when Elvis became a global star could stand in for him secretly at times. This they claim is what happened.
Don't know wireclubers, in theory this sounds possible, but why has Prescilla never said anything over the years? Why have the Southern Bubbers of Elvis who were his body guards never said anything? People say that they are all rock solid southern guys, down to earth and honest good folks. Why have none of them ever said anything about the secret twin?
It is possible, but it is really unlikely. But there are undoubtedly secrets down in dear old Dixie that look like staying secret.
chronology: This date in 1879 The Anglo Zulu War begins.
If you saw the movie Zulu you will have some idea of the ferocity of the battles between the British Army and the Zulu Kingdom.
The dispute began when Britain attempted to set out administration districts in the region of South Africa similar to the successful innovation in Canada. However the Zulu Kingdom and Dutch settlers in South Africa both eventually came to violet opposition of the reforms.
War broke out with the Zulu first. The Zulu people won a spectacular victory in the opening weeks of the war. But Britain eventually held off following attacks and eventually won the conflict.
The battle of Rorkes Drift was given full publicity in England. The heroic defence of the Christian Missionary Station by British Troops became a propaganda poster for Britain's efforts in 'lifting up the little brown brother' in Darkest Africa.
chronology: Tessie MaCnamara becomes a American legend this date in 1917.
The courageous American lady telephone operator stayed at her switchboard as fires began raging in a munition factory. She called all the buildings nearby and warned them of the danger as explosive munitions became engulfed by flames. Her warning to people became a common phrase in New Jersey at the time 'Get out or go up' hero Tessie told people in danger.
chronology: Gerry Marsden dies.
Many American seniors will recall Gerry for the far off days of the British Invasion of American music.
Gerry will be best remembered for his Ferry Cross the Mersey song. Like Sir Paul McCartney Gerry came from Liverpool England. American reporters often struggled to understand the Liverpudlian accent spoken by singer's from the Town.
