19h30 UTC; MONDAY, 4 NOVEMBER 2013: As if the last of the autumn's leaves dropping upon the ground here in the Minnwissippi wasn't bad enow, there's rain here in the Minnwissippi region today, and more likely on the morrow ... whereas areas roughly along US Hwy. 169 from the Iowa line to the Twin Cities and into east-central Minnesota are under a Winter Storm Watch for tonight into the morrow. Luckily, the Minnwissippi continues to see rain (or the possibility therefor) tomorrow.

Such, no doubt, is clear proof that another year's starting to wind down ... and winter is inevitable.

But then again, there's an old expression which hath it that "as November 21st, so the winter." (Come to think of it, is there any historical documentation proving that old maxim vis-a-vis winter weather generally?)

Still refusing to step down from his position: Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, who said as much on a weekly radio programme over Toronto station CFRB in the wake of police managing to recover from a computer hard drive that supposed film showing His Honour smorking on a crack-cocaine pipe. (Yet he did acknowledge to "making serious mistakes" in office and pledging to do better in future.)

No wonder the "Tea Party" and suchlike of their ilk insist on industry-based self-regulation in the interest of "creating jobs" and "protecting free enterprise" as if the latter were somehow essential to Our National Charcter and Identity as a Sovereign Peculiar Among the Nations as of Divine Endowment: The New York Times hath it that Canadian researchers, using DNA tracking, found where one-third of the herbal supplements they tested recently were found not to contain what was claimed on the label, instead discovering worthless fillers such as powdered rice and dried weeds. No doubt worth blaming on the want of FDA or industry oversight over herbal supplements; nevertheless, you can never be too careful what you're buying.

How do we know the four "climate scientists" pushing for greater acceptance of nuclear power in the interest of fighting climate change (contending that wind and solar power may not be adequate enough) aren't really paid-off has-been actors in the pay of nuclear-energy interests and/or their LaRouchenik drookies?

What Mainstream Media isn't telling you about one Paul Ciancia, the triggerman behind a Notorious Incident on Friday at LAX Terminal 3--by way of the Southern Poverty Law Centre's Hatewatch blog:
The 23-year-old man who allegedly killed a TSA official at Los Angeles International Airport [Friday] was carrying a one-page “manifesto” that included references to the “New World Order,” the Federal Reserve and “fiat currency,” according to a knowledgeable source with ranking law enforcement contacts.

Paul Anthony Ciancia, who allegedly wounded three other TSA workers before being shot and critically wounded himself, also expressed antagonism toward the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its chief until she resigned in August, Janet Napolitano, the source said. Ciancia’s note called former Secretary Napolitano a “bull dyke” and contained the phrase “FU Janet Napolitano,” the source said.

Ciancia’s language and references seemed to put him squarely in the conspiracy-minded world of the antigovernment “Patriot” movement. The New World Order refers to a longstanding conspiracy theory that today, in its most popular iteration, claims that global elites are plotting to form a socialistic “one-world government” that would crush American freedoms. Often, the root of the alleged conspiracy is traced to the 1913 creation of the Federal Reserve and the adoption of fiat currency — paper money that is not backed by gold, as it was once was in the U.S.

So-called Patriots also increasingly see the DHS, which produces intelligence assessments of extremists that are distributed to other law enforcement agencies, as an enemy and even a collaborator in the New World Order conspiracy. Many believe DHS has targeted their movement and is somehow connected to the alleged construction of concentration camps by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The purported camps are thought to be meant for those Americans who resist a coming national seizure of all weapons from U.S. citizens.

The TSA, short for the Transportation Security Administration, is an agency of the DHS charged with ensuring the security of transportation, most notably air transportation. Although it has not been widely singled out by Patriots, it has been subjected to criticism by far-right homophobes, among others, who have alleged that TSA agents engaging in hand searches are really sexually groping travelers.

One witness told MSNBC that Ciancia asked people at the airport if they were TSA and, if they said they were not, moved on without trying to harm them.

[On Friday], several news organizations reported that Ciancia was carrying a hand-written document referring to his desire to kill “TSA and pigs.” Pete Williams and Andrew Blankstein of NBC News, who first reported that Ciancia had referred to the New World Order, also wrote that a source said his manifesto “expressed animus toward racial minorities.” Hatewatch was not able to confirm that allegation.

Hatewatch has no records of Ciancia and he is not known to have joined or participated in the activities of any radical groups. Reporters talking to his neighbors have not yet found any evidence of such participation or radical statements.
Is it, perhaps, because what conservatives call the "Lamestream Media" is probably in it with the "Patriot" movement and their drookies in the "Tea Party" and "9/12" (pseudo)movements?

What Enquiring Minds NEED to Know for once about evangel Rafael Cruz, father of Sen. Ted Cruz (GOP/TX): Did he fight alongside Fidel Castro's guerillas in Cuba, as is being whispered about in certain circles, or was he loyal to the forces of Gen. Fulgencio Batista (for which Cruz pere may be an Appy Polly Loggyista, judging by the tone of recent remarks therefrom)?
