Zombie Bullets In High Demand Following Flesh-Eating Attacks -

Zombie Bullets In High Demand Following Flesh-Eating Attacks - 

Talk about zombies and a possible zombie apocalypse has increased due to recent gory accounts of drug-induced, flesh-eating attacks in the news.

Stores across the U.S., including in Metro Detroit, are getting in on the undead action by selling Zombie Bullets, made by Hornady Manufacturing.

In promoting the product on their website, Hornady suggests, “Be PREPARED – supply yourself for the Zombie Apocalypse with Zombie Max ammunition from Hornady! Loaded with PROVEN Z-Max bullets… MAKE DEAD PERMANENT!”

So, will this ammunition actually defend against the things that go bump in the night?

WWJ Newsradio 950′s Zahra Huber spoke with company spokesman, Everett Deger, who said, while the bullets are real, they’re only meant to be used on targets and not on people (or zombies).

Deger said company president Steve Hornady came up with the idea for Zombie Max bullets because of his love for zombie movies and shows.

“After it gained some acceptance among some of us here in the company got on board with the idea we decided just to have some fun with a marketing plan that would allow us to create some ammunition designed for that … fictional world,” Deger said.

He said the Zombie Max and Z-Max bullets are Hornady’s most successful products.

What Could Turn YOU Into A Drug Crazed Flesh Eater? Seven Things You Didn’t Know About Bath Salts -

What Could Turn YOU Into A Drug Crazed Flesh Eater? Seven Things You Didn’t Know About Bath Salts - 

The term “bath salts” has gotten constant buzz ever since a Miami man was reportedly on the mysterious drug last month when he turned into a flesh-eating zombie and ripped off a homeless man’s face.

Despite the intense investigation and media outrage over the attack, many people are still in the dark over what bath salts really are, so RadarOnline.com has compiled an essential guide to the dangerous drug that is sweeping the country.

7. Don’t let the name deceive you, these “salts” have nothing to do with bathing, sweet-smelling bubbles or pampering. Bath salts is a term made up by drug dealers as a cover to make their deadly cocktail sound safe and innocent, other similar products are dubbed with a wide variety of pseudonyms including Plant Food, Ivory Wave, Purple Wave, Red Dove, Scarface and Hurricane Charlie.
6. Known as synthetic cathinones, the drugs are made up of three main chemicals -  methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MPDV), mephedrone and pyrovalerone - which were all temporarily banned by the Drug Enforcement Agency last October due to the alarming number of ER visits and criminal acts related to the narcotics. But while the chemicals are banned, the actual drugs they are made into aren’t because the formulas are changed so quickly, and many of the little white packages are stamped with the warning, “not for human consumption,” as a way to side–step legal regulations.

5. While you won't find this kind of bath salts at Bed, Bath & Beyond or CVS, they are readily and alarmingly available at liquor stores, gas stations, head shops and even mini-marts like 7-11, and can be purchased as easily as beer, cigarettes or energy drinks.

4. Rudy Eugene’s startling transformation from a loving Bible-reading boyfriend to a crazed cannibal is the most extreme example of the drug, but the most common side effects are equally as disturbing and include agitation, paranoia, hallucinations, chest pain, suicidal thoughts, and psychosis. It is common for users – like Eugene who was found naked - to strip off because the chemical cocktail increases their body temperature and makes them feel like their internal organs are literally boiling.

3. Along with the gruesome attack on Ronald Poppo, bath salts have been connected to a number of violent acts, including a murder-suicide in Blue Springs, Missouri last month that left two adults and two children dead. Described by some victims as like “sniffing demons up your nose,” the drug causes increased super human strength and the urge to take the lives of others and often your own, and there has been incidences of suicide even days after their use.

2. Unlike meth or cocaine, which they are often compared to, it is not yet known if bath salts are chemically addictive long-term, but they do cause cravings and acute toxicity when snorted, injected, or mixed with food and drink.

1. Google it! The Internet age has made the job of drug dealers and traffickers much easier, DEA spokesperson Barbara Carreno told RadarOnline.com, and that of narcotics enforcers much harder. “Many of these new designer drugs are made here in the U.S. in towns and cities across the country as all the formulas and ingredients are readily available online,” she revealed.


Obese woman's body fat causes Austrian crematorium to burn down -

Obese woman's body fat causes Austrian crematorium to burn down - 

A devastating fire which gutted a crematorium in southern Austria was caused by an obese woman's excessive body fat blocking an air filter, Austrian public broadcaster ORF reported.
The fire occurred at the facility in the city of Graz in mid-April. Firefighters had trouble extinguishing the blaze due to a thick layer of insulation lining the crematorium's walls.
Austrian officials investigating the fire found that it was caused by the burning body of the 440-pound woman. The obese corpse reportedly led to overheating in the crematorium's filter system, triggering the blaze.
Other recent fires caused by the burning of obese bodies were reported in Germany and Switzerland.
Former Graz city fire chief Otto Widetschek said special crematoria for obese people should be set up in Austria to deal with the potential dangers of cremating obese bodies.
"In Switzerland, there is now a special crematorium for XXL-bodies," he told ORF earlier this week.

When the Chinese Central Bank cut interest rates... It's Time to Worry -

When the Chinese Central Bank cut interest rates... It's Time to Worry - 

The surprise decision by China’s central bank to cut interest rates on June 7 shows increasing nervousness about the state of the economy. While most economists were predicting a rate reduction sometime this year, the suddenness of this latest move reveals just how antsy China’s officials are getting.

“As the first rate cut since Dec 2008, the surprise move sends a strong signal that the government will be more active in supporting demand and stabilizing growth,” wrote Citi Investment Research & Analysis Hong Kong analysts Shuang Ding, Minggao Shen, and Serena Wang in a June 7 note. “We see this as a shift of monetary policy tone that would help lower borrowing costs and improve confidence, increasing the chance for the economy to bottom in Q2 and rebound in Q3.” (Citi Investment Research & Analysis is part of Citigroup Global Markets.)

The People’s Bank of China, China’s central bank, announced it was cutting its benchmark interest rates by 25 basis points, with 12-month lending rates falling from 6.56 percent to 6.31 percent and deposit rates dropping from 3.5 percent to 3.25 percent. Although reserve ratio requirements for Chinese banks have already been reduced three times since last November, today’s cut is the first time China has moved interest rates since raising them (also by 25 basis points) last July.

“The interest rate cut came in as a surprise to the market. Most people were expecting more [bank reserve ratio] cuts” before a move on interest rates, wrote Shanghai-based Standard Chartered economist Wei Li in a June 7 note. “Economic growth and new loan extension data (due this Saturday) must have remained very weak in May, triggering the PBoC to front-load interest rate cuts.”

And while before banks were allowed to lend at a 10 percent discount to the benchmark rate, now they will be able to offer a 20 percent discount. Banks now can also offer savers up to 1.1 times the benchmark savings rate. “The symmetric cuts to both lending and saving benchmark interest rates indicate that the authorities still care to protect banks’ profitability,” wrote Wei Li. “However, the increased flexibilities for banks to decide on actual rates they offer to customers suggest that the PBoC wants to make a step forward toward a more market-oriented interest rate system.”

Don’t expect today’s surprise move to be the last interest rate action. Despite recent announcements that Beijing intends to boost the economy by subsidizing consumer purchases of energy-efficient appliances and speeding up approval of infrastructure projects in steel, energy, water treatment, and other areas, most economists predict more moves by China’s central bank later this year.


Can You Answer 25 Difficult Questions That The Mainstream Media Does Not Seem To Have Answers To? -

Can You Answer 25 Difficult Questions That The Mainstream Media Does Not Seem To Have Answers To? - 

The mainstream news just seems to get sillier and shallower with each passing day.  Our world is becoming incredibly unstable, corruption is everywhere, we are on the verge of another massive economic crisis, government debt is absolutely exploding, war could erupt in the Middle East at any time and signs of deep social decay are everywhere and yet the mainstream media seems absolutely obsessed with reporting on celebrities and scandals.  It would be nice if the mainstream media would do a lot more true investigative reporting and would actually try to answer some of the difficult questions that we are being faced with.  Unfortunately, most of what passes for “news” these days is essentially just “infotainment”.  That is one of the reasons why we have seen such a surge in the popularity of alternative news outlets in recent years.  People are searching for the truth, and they know that they are not getting much of it from the mainstream media these days.

One thing that I enjoy doing is pointing out some of the really silly stories that pass for “news” these days.  Let’s take a quick look at some of the headlines on the front pages of some of the biggest news sites on the Internet right now….


“Is this baby doll really saying b****?”

“Toddler accidentally served vodka”

“Elton John frets over Gaga”


“Zimmerman stocks up on Cheetos in jail”

“Axl Rose robbed of $200,000 worth of jewelry”

“Taco Bell may take on Chipotle with ‘Cantina’ menu”

Fox News

“Custom Car Builder Claims Hot Wheels Stole His Truck”

“Lighter Side of ‘Tanning Mom’”

“Nudist expo bares all in naked tourist industry”

It must be a slow news day, right?


Our world is changing faster than ever before and bombshell stories are breaking at a pace that is really hard to keep up with.

Sadly, the mainstream media in the United States is pretty much a total joke at this point.

But that doesn’t mean that the rest of us can’t ask the important questions and search for the important answers.

Can you answer these 25 questions that the mainstream media in the United States does not seem to have answers to?….

1 – What in the world was Mitt Romney doing at the Bilderberg Group conference?  Reporter Charlie Skelton claims that he has four different eyewitnesses that saw Romney there….

Four eyewitnesses on the hotel staff told me Willard Mitt Romney was here at Bilderberg 2012. My four eyewitnesses place him inside. That’s one more than Woodward and Bernstein used. Romney’s office initially refused to confirm or deny his attendance as Bilderberg is “not public”. They later said it was not him.

2 – Is the financial crisis in Europe ultimately going to result in the creation of a new “European superstate” dominated by Germany?

3 – Shouldn’t we be alarmed that a thousand tons of radioactive water from the Fukushima nuclear disaster is being poured into the Pacific Ocean every single day?

4 – Why is the mainstream media in the United States so silent about the grave threat that Fukushima reactor number 4poses to the entire northern hemisphere?

5 – Why are radiation levels in the rain falling in southern California five times above normal?

6 – The CDC is located in Atlanta, Georgia.  A number of people down in Georgia have recently been attacked by flesh-eating bacteria.  Is there any connection?

7 – Why is the EPA now using drones to spy on farmers in Nebraska and Iowa?

8 – Is the Obama administration actually going to take military action against Syria before the November election?

9 – Are we on the verge of seeing World War III erupt in the Middle East?

10 – Why has Citigroup been put in charge of issuing “digital-identity badges” to individuals that work for Defense Department contractors?

11 – Why are “pre-crime” cameras being installed in mass transit locations all over the United States? Just check out the following example….

A new breed of security cameras can supposedly detect terrorism and crime without a human judgment call–and mass transit agencies are shelling out big bucks for the product. San Francisco’s Municipal Transit Authority, which oversees the city’s MUNI trains, has signed a contract with security firm BRS Labs to deploy cameras to 12 subway stations that use algorithms and machine learning techniques to spot anomalous behavior.

12 – Why is the Department of Homeland Security monitoring the use of hundreds of different keywords on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter?

13 – Why are smart meters being aggressively pushed down the throats of American consumers when most people don’t want them in their homes?

14 – What does the fact that “organized shoplifting” is rapidly rising in America say about the level of social decay in our nation?

15 – Why has the U.S. Congress been spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on printing costs related to meaningless declarations?  The following is from a recent Daily Caller article….

The U.S. Senate has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on printing costs associated with passing simple resolutions declaring observances such as “National Chess Day,” “National Safe Digging Month” and the “Year of Water.”

16 – Why was the U.S. government spending 20 million dollars to develop a Pakistani version of Sesame Street?

17 – Why aren’t Americans being warned that the share of the U.S. national debt per person is on pace to triple by the year 2037?

18 – Why are parents being arrested for cheering at high school graduation ceremonies?

19 – Why did swarms of large spiders suddenly attack large numbers of people attending a religious festival in one town in India recently?….

It may sound like a B-grade horror movie, but residents of the town of Sadiya, in Assam state, say that on the evening of May 8 as they were celebrating a Hindu festival swarms of spiders suddenly appeared and attacked them, The Times of India reported.

Over the next few days two people — a man, Purnakanta Buragohain, and an unnamed school boy — died after being bitten by the spiders. Scores more turned up at the town’s hospital with spider bites.

20 – Why have there been so many “cannibalism incidents” in the United States lately?

21 – Why does the United Nations want to govern the Internet?  Why aren’t more people getting upset about their attempted power grab?

22 – Why has Planned Parenthood been allowed to set up a clinic inside a high school in Los Angeles?

23 – Why is the U.S. military developing a plan to implant microchips into our soldiers?

24 – Why are some schools in Texas planning to use RFID tracking chips to monitor the movement of their students?  Just check out what one school district down in the San Antonio area has planned….

Northside Independent School District plans to track students next year on two of its campuses using technology implanted in their student identification cards in a trial that could eventually include all 112 of its schools and all of its nearly 100,000 students.

25 – Why have TSA agents been caught committing so many crimes?  The following is what one member of Congressrecently had to say about a new report detailing dozens of serious crimes that TSA agents have committed in recent years….

“TSA needs to immediately remove themselves from the human resource business. This report details highly disturbing cases where pedophiles and child pornographers wearing federal law enforcement uniforms are not only patting down unsuspecting travelers, but in many cases stealing valuables from their bags. Enough is enough. It’s time for Congress to step in and demand accountability from Administrator Pistole”

Do you have any other difficult questions that should be added to this list?
