Officials in CA and TN deal with the rising tide: Idiots asking about ‘chemtrails’

Published

on

Officials in multiple states have faced questions over whether clouds of water vapor that form behind airline jets are part of a secret government plot to create a more reflective atmosphere.

Residents of Shasta County in California questioned supervisors about the existence of so-called “chemtrails” on Tuesday, while a local Tennessee regulator’s explanation of the conspiracy theory was published on Monday.

According to reporter Richard DuPertuis, Shasta County residents complained that “chemtrails” being sprayed by jets were “ripping apart” the ozone layer and harming people’s immune systems. Attendees of the Board of Supervisors meeting claimed nanoparticles in the atmosphere where causing neurological problems and killing off aquatic insects.

One woman said the chemtrails were the cause of the drought in California.

“How better to get people off their land?” she remarked.

Believers in the chemtrails conspiracy are convinced that the clouds of condensation that form behind jets — normally called contrails — are being deliberately created as part of a secret geo-engineering program or a military weather control experiment. They believe the clouds really consist of various metals and chemicals.

Bob Colby, the director of the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Air Pollution Control Bureau, said in an interview with David Tulis of Nooganomics.com that the clouds that formed behind jets were natural-occurring phenomenon.

“Well, I’ve only looked at it briefly,” he explained. “It says that in collaboration with NOAA, NASA, the FAA and EPA, they had determined that persistent contrails are natural phenomenon that occurs at high altitudes from jet engines when the relative humidity levels are high in the upper atmosphere and the water vapor that comes out of the jet engines turns to ice particles, and then those ice particles, and then those ice particles grow larger as they collect moisture in the upper atmosphere that’s there in excessive amounts.”

But Tulis said his research suggested that the clouds are actually formed by sprayed “aluminum nanoparticulates.” The particles are being sprayed to make the atmosphere more reflective and block “the beating rays of the sun,” he claimed.

“When you go from your office door at the end of the day at 5:30 to your car, Bob Colby, do you have any sense that the sun being less strong than it used to be? To me the sun seems really weak,” Tulis added.

Colby said he hadn’t observed any difference.

Last month, an Arizona regulator answered questions about the conspiracy theory for nearly 2 hours. Republican state Sen. Kelli Ward called for the hearing, where residents complained that chemtrails were causing “very high levels of barium, aluminum and strontium in their blood.”

“Really, we are being sprayed like we’re bugs and it’s really not okay,” one attendee remarked.

Rudy Giuliani’s devotion has escorted Trump straight to impeachment

Published

on

"Step by step, [Rudy Giuliani] has escorted President Trump to the brink of impeachment," The New York Times said in a piece following the president's top lawyer and his impact on the scandals facing the 45th president.

Two associates of Giuliani's have already been indicted, Giuliani is under criminal investigation from federal prosecutors, and he was never graced with a top position in the Trump government.

"The separate troubles he has gotten his client and himself into are products of the uniquely powerful position he has fashioned, a hybrid of unpaid personal counsel to the president and for-profit peddler of access and advice," The Times said Sunday.

Trump supporters lose their minds when church shows Nativity scene in immigrant cages

Published

on

MAGA supporters are losing their minds after a photo of the Nativity scene at Claremont United Methodist Church was posted to Facebook.

The scene depicts Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus separated and put in their own cages, a reference to the families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border. Inside the church, the family is shown as reunited.

Senior minister Karen Clark Ristine shared the image on Facebook with the message hoping that everyone in the United States could see the photo and read the story for Christmas.

"The theological statement posted with the nativity: In a time in our country when refugee families seek asylum at our borders and are unwillingly separated from one another, we consider the most well-known refugee family in the world," she wrote. "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the Holy Family. Shortly after the birth of Jesus, Joseph and Mary were forced to flee with their young son from Nazareth to Egypt to escape King Herod, a tyrant. They feared persecution and death."

Columnist nails Republicans for only caring about Hunter Biden now that his father is running for president

Published

on

One of the critical questions that must be answered by Republicans, according to one Washington Post columnist, is why they didn't care about Hunter Biden's position at Burisma for so many years.

In a Sunday piece, James Downie asked why Republicans didn't do anything about Hunter Biden five years ago when it was first revealed that vice president's son was on the board of a Ukraine energy company. The House and the Senate were being run by Republicans until this year. They haven't had problems with other partisan investigations against high-profile leaders. There were ten investigations into the Benghazi attacks, three hearings, 29 witnesses, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified for 11 hours. Yet, it was only after Joe Biden announced he was running against President Donald Trump that Republicans discovered an issue.
