Storm Area 51

(TMU) — By all indications, it looks like the moment of truth may finally be upon us as officials and alien enthusiasts alike brace themselves for a pair of events this weekend featuring the secretive Area 51 military base in Nevada.

Thousands of UFO fans are winding down their pilgrimage across Nevada, where the “Storm Area 51” Facebook event has morphed into multiple competing events in Last Vegas, Rachel, and Hiko after the Facebook event’s creator pulled out of a planned music festival near Area 51 in fear of “Frye Fest 2.0.”

“Alienstock” took place last night in Las Vegas. Announcing the move, a statement on the Alienstock website read:

“Due to the lack of infrastructure, planning, and risk management, along with concerns raised for the safety of the expected 10,000+ attendees, we decided to transition Alienstock away from the Rachel festival towards a safer alternative. We are officially disconnecting from the Little A’LE’INN, Rachel NV, and AlienStock’s affiliation with them.

We will no longer offer our logo, social media, website or Matty Roberts likeness or scheduled appearance. In short, the relationship has ended permanently. AlienStock will be moving to a safe, clean secure area in Downtown Las Vegas as an alternative. We are not interested in, nor will we tolerate any involvement in a FYREFEST 2.0. We foresee a possible humanitarian disaster in the works, and we can’t participate in any capacity at this point.”

In a statement sent to the Mind Unleashed last week, the team representing the Little A’Le’Inn said, “Amidst false accusations and rumors, the residents of Rachel Nevada are excited to announce that Alienstock is, in fact, still happening at the Little A’Le’Inn on September 19 – 22nd. With thousands slated to attend and artists traveling in from all over the country, this is sure to be a once-in-this-universe experience.”

“Alienstock has been thoroughly planned, approved, and locally supported. All permits, permissions, and down-payments have been made and correctly filed,” the statement continued.

By all indications, it appears the true alien hunters began gathering last night in the desert of Nevada just north of where those simply seeking an out of this world party enjoyed themselves last night.

On Thursday, a news segment aired by local ABC affiliate KTNV showed an attendee practicing his Naruto run, named after Japanese anime character Naruto Uzumaki, who is known for running with his arms swept back as he runs face-first toward battle.

Even the U.S. Air Force has been briefing their ranks on the definition of the run, which has become a part of the Storm Area 51 meme.

By early Friday, dozens of people from across the U.S. began converging on the gate of Area 51 near Rachel in hopes to take selfies near the notorious site and its signs warning of how the military will violently defend the base, reports CBS News.

And if you’re a still a little confused about what exactly went down when it comes to planning these events and what is happening today and where, you’re not the only one. Even people there don’t seen to know exactly what is taking place.

Meanwhile, about 45 minutes down the “Extraterrestrial Highway” from Rachel, partiers and ufologists are getting ready to attend Storm Area 51 Basecamp, which is being held at the Alien Research Center souvenir shop in Hiko.

Organizers have already put together a medical team clad in t-shirt uniforms and entertainment offerings including films and music performances from the likes of DJ Paul Oakenfold.

Even the food and drink industry have jumped onto the bandwagon, with Bud Light having stepped up as the official sponsor of yesterday’s Area 51 Celebration in downtown Las Vegas, while fast food chain Arby’s plans to serve a “special alien-themed menu” at Storm Area 41 Basecamp that will include colorful “galaxy shakes” and “redacted on rye” roast beef sandwiches.

Indeed, authorities have been less than happy with the plans to “storm” the location, which is located within the US Air Force’s Nevada Test and Training Range. The military has issued stern warnings to use deadly force if civilians break into the base, while local and state officials have promised to make arrests if people make any such attempt.

In a warning that was equal parts menacing and tantalizing, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein told reporters Tuesday:

“All joking aside, we’re taking it very seriously … Our nation has secrets, and those secrets deserve to be protected. The people deserve to have our nation’s secrets protected.”

Earlier this week, the Federal Aviation Administration also issued “temporary flight restrictions for special security reasons“—effectively a no-fly zone—banning any sorts of aircraft from the airspace surrounding the base, while authorities in Lincoln and Nye County have established “operations centers” that they hope will tackle any problems arising from the potentially tens of thousands of curious visitors expected to swarm the sparsely populated area.

Even local residents in Rachel are up in arms—possibly in the literal sense of the term—over the convergences. In forceful language, the town website announced:

“At this time we have to warn people against coming to Rachel for the botched [event] … We expect riots when those visitors that may show up and paid good money find out that the reality looks nothing like what they were promised.

People will get hurt.

STAY AWAY FROM RACHEL.”

University of Nevada – Las Vegas sociologist Michael Borer told CBS that the events are “a perfect blend of interest in aliens and the supernatural, government conspiracies, and the desire to know what we don’t know.”

Continuing, he explained:

“People desire to be part of something, to be ahead of the curve.

Area 51 is a place where normal, ordinary citizens can’t go. When you tell people they can’t do something, they just want to do it more.”

Man Tried To Steal Every Newspaper In Town To Hide Story About Him Stealing Election Signs

Avatar

Published

on

It was like something out of a movie or a cartoon. An Iowa man attempted to steal every newspaper in his small town, just so his neighbors couldn’t see that he was listed in the police blotter for stealing election signs. Unfortunately for him, his outrageous plot to cover up his local act of election interference backfired, because the case ended up making national headlines.  

Peter De Yager got a small mention in the September 2nd edition of the Dickinson County News and he wasn’t happy about it. De Yager had recently pleaded guilty to stealing a Joe Biden election sign from a neighbors yard, so his name was listed in the crime roundup section of the paper. Just three sentences were dedicated to De Yager on the third page of the paper, but he seemed determined to keep news of his arrest private. 

After the issue featuring De Yager was released, the staff at Dickinson County News began getting reports that entire stacks of papers had gone missing from numerous locations around town.

Dickinson County News staff writer Seth Boyes told As It Happens guest host Peter Armstrong that a delivery driver was the first to notice that something was wrong.

“He told us that there were no papers anywhere along his route that day. And he also happened to mention that there was one location, at least, that told him they had some footage of a guy stealing all the papers on their on their security cameras. So from that point, I started making some calls,” Boyes said.

De Yager is a well-known businessman in the area, and a regular customer at many of the stores that he stole from, so he was identified immediately. In fact, one of the store owners recognized De Yager and didn’t even call the police, but just confronted him the next time that he came into the store. 

Boyes said the staff at the newspaper also figured things out pretty quickly.

“I got to thinking about why anyone would want to take all the papers. And it did occur to me that we’d run that police blotter, what we call the Sirens, in that week’s edition. It was kind of a long shot, we thought, but, you know, maybe it was,” he said.

As Boyes pointed out, most news is distributed on the internet these days, and print editions are more commonly sent to the homes of subscribers.

“The paper is not only available online, but subscribers get the paper directly mailed to the residents. So stealing papers out of the racks is going to have an effect, but not as large an effect as one would think,” Boyes said.

Only one of the stores, a Jiffy station, decided to press charges, while the other locally-owned stores simply accepted an apology and a repayment. 

“We went around to the various convenience stores, and some of them opted not to press charges if he agreed to come in and pay for the papers,” Spirit Lake Police Lt. Daren Diers said.

De Yager pleaded guilty to theft and trespassing for taking about $20 worth of newspapers from the Jiffy gas station, and has paid the other convenience stores back for the papers that were taken.

Scientists Discover New Organ In The Center Of The Human Head

Medical researchers have made a shocking historical anatomical discovery by finding a new organ located at the center of the human head that has been lurking there all along.

The finding was reported in Radiotherapy and Oncology. Researchers discovered the organ by accident thanks to doctors in the Netherlands, who were examining 100 patients for prostate cancer while performing an advanced type of scan called PSMA PET/CT. This diagnostic process when paired with injections of radioactive glucose highlights tumors in the body.

However, in this case, the researchers found something else entirely, nestled in the rear of the nasopharynx. The nasopharynx functions as an airway in the respiratory system. Also contained within the nasopharynx are the adenoids, or pharyngeal tonsils.

The new organ looks to be a mysterious set of salivary glands that have been hidden inside the human head. How this was discovered in 2020, missed for centuries is unknown, but until now, the human body has had three major salivary glands — parotid, submandibular, and sublingual glands.

“People have three sets of large salivary glands, but not there,” explains radiation oncologist Wouter Vogel from the Netherlands Cancer Institute. “As far as we knew, the only salivary or mucous glands in the nasopharynx are microscopically small, and up to 1,000 are evenly spread out throughout the mucosa. So, imagine our surprise when we found these.”

Now, we can add a fourth located behind the nose and above the palate, close to the center of the human head.

“The two new areas that lit up turned out to have other characteristics of salivary glands as well,said one of the first author of the study, oral surgeon Matthijs Valstar from the University of Amsterdam.

“We call them tubarial glands, referring to their anatomical location [above the torus tubarius].”

These tubarial glands were seen to exist in the PSMA PET/CT scans of all the 100 patients, revealing visible draining duct openings towards the nasopharyngeal wall.

“To our knowledge, this structure did not fit prior anatomical descriptions,” the researchers explained in their paper.

It’s worth noting that there are an additional approximately 1,000 minor salivary glands situated throughout the oral cavity and the digestive tract. Although, these are not seen without a microscope according to Scientific Alert.

The researchers suggest the organ is found at a poorly accessible anatomical location under the skull base, which explains why it has been missed all of these centuries. The medical professionals note that it’s possible they may have noticed the duct openings, but it’s unlikely they would have realized the structures were apart of a larger gland system. But thanks to newer technology allowing advanced PSMA-PET/CT imaging techniques, seeing the macroscopical organ was possible.

The study needs to be replicated and validated. However, pathologist said that the team may be on to something and if its real it could change the way we view diseases in that region of the skull.

“It seems like they may be onto something,” pathologist Valerie Fitzhugh from Rutgers University, who wasn’t involved with the study, told The New York Times.

“If it’s real, it could change the way we look at disease in this region.”

Pastor Says God Intended Earth As A ‘Disposable Planet’ In Climate Sermon

American pastor John MacArthur made headlines this year for his defiance of COVID restrictions, which has brought new attention to his catalog of sermons, and they contain some outrageous claims, as many would suspect. 

In one sermon where he discusses environmentalism, he claims that Earth is a “disposable planet.”

“God intended us to use this planet to fill this planet for the benefit of man. Never was intended to be a permanent planet. It is a disposable planet. Christians ought to know that,” MacArthur said

He went on to say that, “Yes its beauty can be seen. I’ve been everywhere on this planet, and I’ll tell you, it is a stunning and glorious thing to stand and look at a distance at the beauty of this planet. But the closer you get to it, the more deadly it becomes. I’ve seen the beauty of the great Alps, the Southern Alps and the Northern Alps. But I’ll tell you what, I don’t want to be up there by myself for a week. I’ve seen the beauty of the great deserts of the world, but I don’t want to be out there alone without water by myself. I want to be somewhere where there’s a building and that building has air conditioning and water. I want to go where people have subdued the creation. I’m not under any foolish assumptions that if we just let it go wild, we’ll preserve life. If you let it go, the wilder it is, the more deadly it is.”

In the same sermon, he goes on to say that he would prefer all of nature to be tamed, and even praised the De Beers diamond mines. He went on a strange rant admitting that slave labor was used to mine diamonds, but then added that “God loves jewelry.” 

“Get all the pearls you can. Dig up all the diamonds you can. Get all the natural resources you can, the replenishable resources, natural gas and oil and everything that God has put in this planet. It’s an absolutely staggering little piece that’s floating around in infinite space,” he said.

The sermon is called “The End of the Universe Part 2” and can be seen below:

The transcript can be read here.

He has been acknowledged by Christianity Today as one of the most influential preachers of his time and was a frequent guest on Larry King Live as a representative of an evangelical Christian perspective. MacArthur has written or edited more than 150 books, most notably the MacArthur Study Bible, which has sold more than 1 million copies and received a Gold Medallion Book Award. Other best-selling books include his MacArthur New Testament Commentary Series (more than 1 million copies), Twelve Ordinary Men (more than 500,000 copies), and the children’s book A Faith to Grow On, which garnered an ECPA Christian Book Award.

MacArthur has been involved with multiple controversies regarding his outspokenness on certain topics. MacArthur is very open about opposing same-sex marriage, against female pastors, and the social justice movement.
