IRBIL, Iraq (AP) — Iraqi Kurds cast ballots on Monday in their autonomous region and in a wide sweep of captured territories on whether to seek independence from Baghdad, a historic vote that has also raised tensions and fears of instability.
The referendum is non-binding and will not immediately bring independence, but it would mark a definitive stance by the Kurds to break away, and Kurdish leaders say they will use a “yes” vote to press for negotiations with Iraq’s central government to win statehood. Continue reading
SPINDALE, N.C. (AP) — When Randy Fields’ construction company faced potential ruin because of the cratering economy, he pleaded with his pastor at Word of Faith Fellowship church to reduce the amount of money he was required to tithe every week.
To his shock, Fields said church founder Jane Whaley proposed a divine plan that would allow him to continue tithing at least 10 percent of his income to the secretive evangelical church while helping his company survive: He would file fraudulent unemployment claims on behalf of his employees. She called it, he said, “God’s plan.” Continue reading
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — An airplane uniquely configured for Alaska that could leave passengers sharing the main deck with a kitchen sink, this week’s groceries or a herd of reindeer is about to be taken out of service.
Alaska Airlines is retiring its combi planes, Boeing 737-400s designed to be half cargo immediately behind the cockpit and then seating for 72 passengers in the rear. The planes were the workhorse for the airline, moving goods and people across the nation’s largest state. Continue reading
The warnings may be coming too late for the eastern United States as Hurricane Maria pushes Northwest. Whether Maria will be a tropical storm or hurricane when she hits North Carolina remains to be seen, but it’s almost certain that some kind of major storm will strike tomorrow with direct force. Unlike Harvey and Irma, the third hurricane in a month won’t have a week-long warning period for people to get prepared. Meteorologists have been uncertain up until now whether the storm will affect the coast or head harmlessly out to sea and have said that a hit is unlikely up until now. Continue reading
If you’ve gone to get new tires recently, you may have already dealt with the latest outcropping of technocratic busybodyism: The scanning of your car’s electronic ear tag, its Vehicle Identification Number or VIN.
The VIN is a bar code – literally – just like the one on the packages of stuff you buy at the supermarket or anywhere else that’s corporate. The VIN specifically identifies your car – including every last detail about it, such as the engine/transmission it came with, the color it was painted and the tires it came equipped with from the factory.

We were assured that Trump was better than Hillary.
The good news is the world didn’t end last Saturday. The bad news is – at least according to one Doomsday writer – is we have a new date for the apocalypse.
David Meade is a Christian numerologist who predicted the world would end Sept. 23 after being struck by a rogue planet, called Nibiru or Planet X. Meade said his prediction was based on Biblical verses and codes that pointed to that date.
Saturday came and went without a cosmic collision and now, Meade said there’s a new Doomsday date: Oct. 15. Continue reading
On Sunday evening, President Trump announced he would replace his controversial travel ban with a targeted list of restrictions that will enhance vetting for nationals from eight countries, and restrict or prohibit entry of citizens from North Korea and Venezuela among others, to the United States as part of a sweeping new travel ban that also slaps restrictions on Iran, Chad, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Somalia – countries that hardly have a “thriving” tourism industry with the US.

“Mr. Kushner uses his White House email address to conduct White House business. Fewer than a hundred emails from January through August were either sent to or returned by Mr. Kushner to colleagues in the White House from his personal email account,” Kushner attorney Abbe Lowell said in a statement.

DEAR ENEMY FORCE IN OCCUPATION, LISTEN!
Well it’s not completely dead, but it’s definitely going to need life support, because most of the once-popular sources of real news have sold themselves to Zion, and are now shoveling whatever dung will make them a few bucks. This makes them no better than any other television station.
Alternative news websites were born out of patriotic desire to expose the truth to the American people, but unfortunately, there’s no money in exposing the truth, and in fact, exposing too much truth insures that you’ll never make a dime, regardless of how many people come to your website to read it. Half of the truth is just another lie, and real truth-movers know it.
As a result of Zionist coercion of advertisers, as well as their control of payment systems, there now exists only a precious few websites willing to tell the whole truth, and they can probably use a little financial help. How much do you pay every month to be brainwashed by cable TV? Let’s not forget to donate to the people working to save our country. Without real news, we’re all screwed. Continue reading
Deadly Tennessee church shooting: Sudanese immigrant arrested, FBI to launch civil rights investigation
One woman was killed and seven other people were hurt after a suspect identified as a Sudanese immigrant opened fire at a Tennessee church Sunday, police said, as federal officials told Fox News the FBI will initiate a civil rights investigation into the shooting.
The suspect, 25-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samson, immigrated from Sudan two decades ago, police said. He’s suspected of bringing two pistols and a mask to the predominantly white Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, southeast of Nashville, before opening fire just after 11 a.m. Continue reading
Comedian Tim Allen recently revealed the truth of what happened to his hit-ABC show “Last Man Standing,” after it was abruptly cancelled earlier this year. Network executives cancelled the show despite having very high ratings. Many accused the network of playing politics, but they denied politics played a role in the show’s cancellation.
What did he say?
“It tore me up. Every aspect of (that show), everything about it, I loved. I was grateful every day,” he said recently in an interview with the San Luis Obispo Tribune. Allen explained: Continue reading
American female veterans are committing suicide at more than twice the rate of civilian women, a US government study has found.
The survey released by US Department for Veteran Affairs on Friday, showed that the ratio of women veterans who took their own lives increased from 1.88 in 2013 to 2.15 in 2014 compared to non-veteran females.
The report’s findings were based on data gathered from 50 US states along with Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia and analyzed more than 55 million people who left the US military between 1970 and 2014. Continue reading
The monument in the heart of Moscow was supposed to be a tribute to Mikhail Kalashnikov, the creator of the AK-47 assault rifle.
Unfortunately, things went wrong, spectacularly so. The etching on the plinth was not of a Kalashnikov but the StG 44 rifle used by the Nazis during WWII.
The mistake was spotted by arms experts, the BBC reported. It left the authorities having to use an angle grinder to remove the offending image. Continue reading
North Korea’s foreign minister called U.S. President Donald Trump “a mentally deranged person full of megalomania” and promised a strike on the American mainland was “inevitable” in a blistering speech to the United Nations General Assembly Saturday.
The address by Ri Yong Ho began as the Pentagon announced that it had flown bombers and fighter escorts to the farthest point north of the Korean Demilitarized Zone by any such American aircraft this century. Continue reading
HOUSTON, Texas (INTELLIHUB) — It looks like the Federal Emergency Management Agency may have converted a building which housed an old Walmart store into a base and storage facility.
A video published to the “joe mendoza” YouTube channel on Sept. 19 reveals how the federal facility which took about ‘two years’ to set up is now active and FEMA busses, trailers, and other equipment can be seen on site along with personnel. Continue reading
