FLORENCE — A known drug trafficker has been named as the prime suspect in the “brutal” murders of two men whose dismembered remains were found in the Casa Grande area, including body parts discovered in a septic tank two years ago.
During a press conference Monday morning, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said 43-year-old Fausto Negrete-Olivas is believed to have lured Baltazar Lopez, also believed to have been involved in illicit cartel activity, to Casa Grande with the promise of about $10,000. Instead of turning over the money, however, the suspect is believed to have murdered Lopez, and another man identified as Azaren Cordova, and dismembered their bodies with a sharp object such as an axe or machete before disposing of them.

There was a time when “FDA Approved” was a vote of credibility. We could purchase a product and feel safe because the government watchdogs had checked it out thoroughly before allowing it to be sold.
Now, “FDA Approved” means “The company that produced this product has enough money and clout to allow it to be sold.” Continue reading “20 Things the FDA (Federal Deception Administration) Doesn’t Want You to Know”
Lately, there has been a growing sense of unease with Russia. Of course, our relationship with Russia has always been a priority, particularly because of their nuclear arsenal and geographic position. But it seems as though tensions between the US and Russia are increasing recently.
For example, President Obama has been making moves that seem like they are set in motion to deliberately annoy Vladimir Putin. Putin, perhaps in response to this, has directly ordered some drills that would make even the most stalwart person feel rather uncomfortable. Continue reading “Oh, Hi There. Russia to Station Troops a Mere 50 Miles from the US Border”

Sometimes, we can get a hint of things that are to come by watching what the government is doing to prepare. After all, their intel is way better than ours, and they do have a tendency to keep secrets. Of special interest to anyone who like to don the tinfoil and try to figure out what may be coming down the pipe are the actions of FEMA, the agency which is in charge of “managing” emergencies here in the US.
So when they place a large order for something that they want absolutely immediately, I pay attention. Continue reading “Why Did FEMA Just Put a Rush Order on 5 Million Bottles Of Water?”

What would happen if some sort of major national emergency caused a massive transportation disruption that stopped trucks from running? The next time you talk to a trucker, please thank them for their service, because without their hard work none of our lives would be possible. In America today, very few of us live a truly independent lifestyle, and that means that we rely on the system to provide what we need. Most of us take for granted that there will always be plenty of goods at Wal-Mart and at the grocery store whenever we need more “stuff”, and most of us never give a second thought to how all of that “stuff” gets there. Well, the truth is that most of it is brought in by trucks, and if the trucks stopped running for some reason the entire country would devolve into chaos very rapidly.

President Peña Nieto:
“We may not agree on certain topics,” Peña Nieto said, according to a live CNN translation of his remarks, but on the issue of trade, “I shared with Mr. Trump my conviction that the free trade of North America has done a lot of good to both the United States andMexico.”
“With the next administration, we must accelerate these efforts so that the Mexico-US border is more efficient and safe,” Peña Nieto said, pointing out that “undocumented immigration from Mexico to the US had its highest point ten years ago and it has slowed down consistently even to the point of being a net negative at this point.” Continue reading “Press conference with Peña Nieto and Donald Trump in Mexico”

Last weekend the city of Minneapolis unleashed the greatest plan ever devised by leftists, to stunt the plague of gun violence that is ravaging their city. They of course, did what any unimaginative gun grabber would do.
They decided to hold a gun buyback program at a local fire station. This however wasn’t an ordinary gun buyback. In this case, the weapons that would be bought from the residents of Minneapolis, would be donated to local artists, so that they could use the guns to make a statement about the devastating impact of gun violence.

The Drug Enforcement Administration on Tuesday announced its intention to temporarily ban the chemicals contained in kratom, a popular herbal supplement that has been widely used as a way to self-treat chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, and a number of other conditions.
Kratom, a plant from Southeast Asia that activates some of the same receptors as opioids, can be easily purchased online and in smoke shops. Although consumers have embraced the supplement as a painkiller and in some cases as a replacement for opioids, physicians worry about users who turn to kratom to try to wean themselves off opioids without seeking professional help. They also worry that it may be adulterated, given how little the substance is regulated.

Malissa Sergent Lewis, a school teacher in Kentucky, was running late to work on Thursday and decided to take a shortcut through a backroad on the way to school. It was then that she saw something she wasn’t expecting on the side of the road. Lewis told The Dodo,
“I saw this trash bag in the road, and I thought to myself, ‘Did I just see that bag move?’ The closer I got, I realized it was moving. I could hardly wrap my mind around that. Something was alive in that bag, and I just knew I had to get whatever it was out.”
