A dangerous winter storm will bring snow by the foot to the U.S. mid-Atlantic, including Washington, threatening at least 50 million people in its path while canceling thousands of flights and closing schools and government offices.

Washington and Baltimore may get 2 feet of snow (61 centimeters) by Saturday, and Philadelphia could see almost as much. New York may get buried in 6 to 10 inches. Blizzard warnings and watches stretch from Virginia to Long Island, including New York and Washington.

“It has the potential to be an extremely dangerous storm,” Louis Uccellini, director of the National Weather Service, said Thursday in a conference call with reporters. “It is a potentially paralyzing storm.”

Almost 5,000 flights have already been canceled for Friday and Saturday in the U.S., according to Houston-based FlightAware. Everything from schools to rail lines were planning closures in Washington. Snow will start in the Mid-Atlantic late Friday afternoon or evening and then move up the East Coast, arriving in New York by Saturday morning, Uccellini said.

Washington Schools

Washington’s public schools will close Friday and non-essential district workers will be sent home at noon, the mayor’s office said in an e-mail. Washington Metro will halt city buses at 5 p.m. Friday, while keeping rail service operating until 11 p.m., according to the transit agency’s website. Both bus and subway services will remain shut through Sunday.

One major Washington event will go on as scheduled: The annual March for Life marking the Roe v. Wade anniversary will start at noon, the event’s organizers said in a release, regardless of the weather.

American Airlines Group Inc. said it was canceling some flights Friday and all flights out of the Washington region as well as Philadelphia on Saturday. American also canceled regional flights at three New York area airports for Saturday. United Continental Holdings Inc. said it was shutting operations starting Friday afternoon out of Dulles International, along with other Washington-area airports.

Deutsche Lufthansa AG said Friday it had canceled flights to New York, Philadelphia and Washington because of the storm, while Etihad Airways said it also expected cancellations and delays.

The storm is already having an impact, with severe thunderstorms and tornadoes in Texas and Louisiana. Ice storms are forecast in Kentucky and North Carolina and high winds and flooding are possible along the Eastern Seaboard from Delaware to New York.

Businesses Affected

The blizzard will affect industries such as airlines and power companies and tax emergency crews, said Uccellini, who together with weather service meteorologist Paul Kocin wrote a textbook on winter storms.

Duke Energy Corp. had mobilized 3,200 workers in North Carolina and South Carolina to fight power outages, according to a company statement.

“It is a multifaceted storm in regards to its potential impacts,” Uccellini said. “Seven million people could be affected by icing.”

In New York, Mayor Bill de Blasio said trucks carrying rock salt will begin hitting the streets Friday with crews operating 12-hour shifts through the weekend. Washington, D.C., Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and North Carolina have declared emergencies.

Boston Outlook

Boston may be spared the worst of the storm as it passes to the south.

“Boston is one of the more difficult locations to forecast for this storm,” Patrick Burke, a meteorologist with the U.S. Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland, said in an interview. “Any kind of shift of the track of the storm could bring heavier amounts.”

Uccellini said there will be a fine line between where heavy snow hits and those areas that get almost nothing, as well as where precipitation falls as rain or sleet.

“We still have forecast challenges facing us,” Uccellini said. “There is a very sharp gradient in the snowfall predictions just north of New York City. Any shift in that gradient can mean lots of snow for New York City or very little.”

A Miss

There was a similar problem last year when initial forecasts called for New York to get almost 3 feet of snow, he said. That deep snow missed the city and parts of Long Island, and New England bore the brunt of that system.

While the storm is forecast to be over for most of the East on Sunday, Uccellini said on Thursday that people should keep an eye on the system. “Could something go wrong with the forecast between now and tomorrow night? Yes,” he said.





US government fights to keep ‘disturbing’ force-feeding Gitmo footage secret


The Obama administration is pushing ahead with its efforts to keep secret an “extremely disturbing” tape of a Guantanamo detainee being force-fed. Having missed a federal court’s deadline, it has notified a judge that it would again appeal the order.

The Department of Justice’s deputy assistant attorney general submitted a notice of appeal in US District Court in Washington, DC on Thursday.

According to The Intercept, the DoJ has until January 22, 2016 to release 11 hours of video material, showing Guantanamo guards using what DC District Court Judge Gladys Kessler said was “a particularly rough treatment” of Syrian detainee Abu Wa’el Dhiab.

The footage shows Dhiab, who was hunger striking at the time, being pulled from his cell and fed against his will by six guards in “riot squad” gear, according to Reprieve, the organization that helps Dhiab in his legal battle against President Barack Obama.

His lawyer described the footage as “extremely disturbing” after examining 28 of 32 total videotapes.

“I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping this week as a result of watching these tapes,” Alka Pradhan told Al Jazeera at the time.

In May 2014, Dhiab filed a lawsuit asking a federal court to stop force-feeding in Guantanamo.

The fight between the DoJ and Kessler to keep the force-feeding tapes hidden has been ongoing for just as long.

The tapes were first ordered to be released in October 2014, after 16 news companies, including the Associated Press, ABC, the Guardian, and the New York Times, requested them from court records. The government appealed that order, but was denied in May of last year.

Then in July 2015, officials made another attempt to persuade Kessler to reconsider her decision, citing national security fears. They argued that if released, the footage would “inflame Muslim sensitivities” and “subject the US Government to criticism.”

Kessler rebuked the arguments, saying: “What the Government is really saying is that its classification system trumps the decisions of the federal courts as to the public’s access to official court records; in other words, the Executive Branch (in this case, the Military) purports to be a law unto itself.”

This is when she scolded the US government for what she said was “as frivolous an appeal as I’ve ever seen.”

In October 2015, citing “transparency” of the government’s actions as “a cornerstone” of America’s democracy, Kessler again cut short the DoJ’s efforts to continue hiding the video.

Dhiab, a father of four, left Guantanamo for Uruguay in December 2015 after spending 13 years without trial. For five of them, he was expecting his release, which he had been cleared in 2009. Dhiab has been also pushing the US government to release his tapes.

“I want Americans to see what is going on at the prison today, so they will understand why we are hunger-striking, and why the prison should be closed,” he said upon his release. “If the American people stand for freedom, they should watch these tapes. If they truly believe in human rights, they need to see these tapes.”

Closing the military base-tuned-prison in Cuba was one of President Obama’s major promises since his 2008 presidential campaign. Now, six years on and 14 years since it started operating, 91 inmates remain.




California to throw adults in JAIL if they refuse government-mandated vaccines


(NaturalNews) In case you haven’t noticed, there’s an incremental push right now by the controlling elite to force vaccinations on all Americans, both young and old. And this agenda is gaining considerable traction in California, where legislators are now moving forward with plans to force childhood vaccines on all adults who work in daycare centers, both private and public.

Senate Bill 792, also known as the “Day care facilities: immunizations: exemptions” act, was presented quietly alongside SB 277, which eliminates personal, philosophical and religious vaccine exemptions for children who attend both private and public schools in the Golden State. The bill, as recently heard by the California Assembly Human Services Committee, reads as follows:

This bill, commencing September 1, 2016, would prohibit a day care center or a family day care home from employing any person who has not been immunized against influenza, pertussis, and measles.

If passed, SB 792 would represent the first adult vaccine mandate in the U.S. that disallows exemptions for personal reasons, and that threatens criminal penalties for those who fail or refuse to comply. Here’s how Vaccine Impact describes SB 792:

SB 792, would eliminate an adult’s right to exempt themselves from one, some, or all vaccines, a risk-laden medical procedure.

This bill would make California the first state to require mandated vaccinations for all childcare workers, including all private and public school early childhood education programs (Headstart, Private preK and preschools), family daycares, and daycare centers.

SB 792 represents medical violence against adults

An affront to both medical and religious liberty, SB 792 appears to be the wave of the future in New America, where the perceived health of the “herd” is now more important than the health of the individual. Never before in the history of the United States have legislators pushed this hard to literally force vaccine injections on the public under duress.

But why do they feel the need to do this if vaccines really work and are truly safe as claimed? The answer is that vaccines aren’t safe and effective, and more people than ever are acknowledging this truth and opting out of the “requirements” of the system through vaccine exemptions, hence the rush to eliminate these exemptions as quickly as possible, starting with California.

“This bill eliminates medical autonomy, crushes religious freedom, undermines personal freedom, and burdens quality providers with a non-optional series of medical interventions in the form of mandated vaccines that are not even 100% effective,” adds Vaccine Impact.

Contact California legislators and say NO to SB 792

As of this writing, SB 792 awaits a hearing by California’s Committee on Appropriations, having recently passed through the Assembly Human Services Committee with a 6-1 vote. The official vote tally reveals that the following members of this committee voted in FAVOR of passing SB 792:

Ian C. Calderon
Kansen Chu
Patty Lopez
Brian Maienschein
Mark Stone
Tony Thurmond

You can contact the above individuals here and let them know how you feel about their betrayal of medical freedom in California.

You can also contact the individual members of the Committee on Appropriations and tell them to vote AGAINST SB 792 by visiting: pro.assembly.ca.gov

If Americans sit idly by while corrupt legislators pass incremental bills like SB 277 and SB 792, it will only be a matter of time before even stricter bills come along mandating vaccinations for additional groups of people, until eventually everyone is forced into being vaccinated by the state for the benefit of “public health.”

“Laws like these are forging a burden of responsibility that is collectively shared by everyone,” writes Joshua Krause for GlobalResearch.ca.

“It won’t be long before they try to force vaccines on every adult and child in California. And if they pull it off there, legislators in other states will try to see if they can use the sheepish tyranny of majority rule to force vaccines on their citizens as well.”

Mysterious chemtrail fibers dropped by C-130 over Arizona covered up by mainstream media


(NaturalNews) In early November, Chino Valley, Arizona, residents Marie Snow and Cori Gunnels made a discovery which they said frightened them. According to published reports — and there were few — they witnessed what appeared to them to be 50- to 60-foot long “raindrops,” which were “solid” in nature, falling in clusters from the sky after seeing a C-130 military transport plane and two escort aircraft fly overhead.

As reported by the news website IntelliHub, the pair were of the mind to gather some samples of the fibrous material, which was found in stringy blotches clinging to fences, plants and other structures throughout the bucolic landscape of the region, to have them examined by experts, with the hope of figuring out what it was that was dropped from the sky. Snow, the website reported, even decided not to touch the strands with her bare hands, and collected them on white pieces of paper.

Not long after, Snow decided to contact her local news station, KPHO, a CBS affiliate, and asked them to investigate her discovery. A few days later, the station sent a reporter, Greg Argos, to look into Snow’s finding and get her story, including the part where the fibrous material appeared to be distributed overhead from a military transport aircraft.

“However, what happened after CBS 5 interviewed Snow may shock you,” IntelliHub reported.

Biodegradable gauze”

The roughly three-minute video piece produced by KPHO reported Snow’s details and included some quotes from her regarding her discovery. The report noted that the fibers gathered by Snow, which were “thicker than a spider web” and “very strong,” were taken by the station to Grand Canyon University’s Forensic Science Lab for testing.

According to the report, Melissa Beddow, director of the university’s forensic science program, tested the substance samples under “40 times magnification.” Though at first the samples stumped her, she eventually concluded that they were likely “biodegradable gauze” from “nearby cattle farms.” She said they were comprised of “a mixture of wheat, gluten, flour and bacitracin, an antibiotic.”

As further reported by IntelliHub, that conclusion did not satisfy the curious:

However, after the local news piece aired, Snow and others were skeptical of Argos’ findings. Snow was soon after urged by Al DiCicco, who appears in the documentary film “Shade the Motion Picture”, a film about covert and sinister bioweapons testing programs, to contact Intellihub News and get independent testing of the samples done by a reputable lab. And that’s just what Marie Snow did.

On Nov. 22, Snow contacted IntelliHub’s Shepard Ambellas for another attempt at finding out what to do next, since the Chino Valley resident remained unconvinced of the local media’s findings. Ambellas said he advised the same thing DiCicco did: Get some independent testing done.

Snow and Gunnels sent several of the fibrous samples to a credible laboratory located in Redding, Calif.

Chemtrail materials confirmed

The work order for the samples numbered “14K0279” was dated Dec. 4, 2014, the order numbered “14K0683” was dated Dec. 2, 2014. They both came with this guarantee: “All analysis were performed under strict adherence to our established Quality Assurance Plan.” Both said that “solid” “fibers” were submitted by “Marie Snow” for “general testing.”

“Astonishingly, both tests concluded that both samples indeed tested positive for three metal analytes, ‘Aluminum,’ ‘barium’ and ‘strontium,’ three substances commonly known by dedicated researchers to be found in persistent contrails, i.e. chemtrails and or geoengineering, terraforming operations as pointed out by investigative researcher, activist, Rosalind Peterson, Agriculture Defense Coalition, in Shade the Motion Picture,” IntelliHub reported.

But the rest of the mainstream media has thus far ignored the story — and, for that matter, most all other “chemtrail” stories, unless they are attempting to discredit the notion or the sources bringing the issue to the public’s attention.

Vatican’s chief exorcist warns that practicing yoga is ‘satanic’


(NaturalNews) The successor to Father Gabriele Amorth, the Vatican’s former chief exorcist for 25 years, has come out in condemnation of fantasy novels and yoga, declaring both to cause demonic possession. Speaking to The Independent (UK), Father Cesare Truqui explained how the Roman Catholic Church has seen a steady uptick in reports of demonic possession all around the world, and that popular culture pastimes like reading Harry Potter novels and engaging in Vinyasa are largely to blame.

The popularity of many modern television shows, movies and novels that glorify “demonic” creatures such as vampires and magical wizards has apparently led both young and old alike to engage in certain activities that the Vatican says summon satanic spirits, claims Professor Giuseppe Ferrari. Ferrari recently attended a meeting in Rome where Catholic authorities and delegates discussed how to deal with this alleged demonic possession crisis.

Demonic characters in shows like True Blood and The Vampire Diaries are often portrayed as beautiful human beings with desirable characteristics and superpowers, which may lure the unsuspecting into dabbling in the occult. Father Cesare says he’s seen many an individual speaking in tongues and exhibiting unearthly strength, two attributes that his religion says indicate the possibility of evil spirits inhabiting a person’s body.

“There are those who try to turn people into vampires and make them drink other people’s blood, or encourage them to have special sexual relations to obtain special powers,” stated Professor Ferrari at the meeting. “These groups are attracted by the so-called beautiful young vampires that we’ve seen so much of in recent years.”

Is yoga about worshiping Hindu gods, or is it about engaging in advanced stretching and exercise?

At its roots, yoga is said to have originated from the ancient worship of Hindu gods, with the various poses representing unique forms of paying homage to these entities. From this, other religions such as Catholicism and Christianity have concluded that the practice is out of sync with their own, and that it may result in demonic spirits entering a person’s body.

Others contend that yoga practice is really more focused on advanced stretching moves and physical exercise, and that it can bring about healing and improved well-being such as improved core strength, better circulation and reduced stress. The intent of the person doing yoga, rather than yoga itself, in other words, is what defines the extent of how the practice influences a person’s being and soul.

But Father Truqui sees yoga as being satanic, claiming that “it leads to evil just like reading Harry Potter.” And in order to deal with the consequences of this, his religion has had to bring on an additional six exorcists, bringing the total number to 12, just to deal with what he says is a 100% rise in the number of requests for exorcisms over the past 15 years.

“The ministry of performing exorcism is little known among priests,” stated Father Truqui to The Independent. “It’s like training to be a journalist without knowing how to do an interview.”

At the same time, Father Amorth admits that the Roman Catholic Church’s notoriety for all kinds of perverted sex scandals is also indicative of demonic activity — he stated that it represents proof that “the devil is at work inside the Vatican.”

“There’s homosexual marriage, homosexual adoption, IVF [in vitro fertilization] and a host of other things,” added Monsignor Luigi Negri, the archbishop of Ferrara-Comacchio, about what he says is evidence of the existential evil in society. “There’s the clamorous appearance of the negation of man as defined by the Bible.”
