10 Offbeat Stories You Might Have Missed This Week (2/23/19)

With another week in the history books, it’s time to sit back and review some of the stories that made the news over the last few days. Click here if you want to learn all about the major headlines. Otherwise, read on for unexpected and outlandish stories.

This week’s list is a collection of international affairs. There is the Canadian iceberg heist, the German Smurf party, and the French lightsaber duel. We find glow-in-the-dark spider fossils in Korea and striped horses in England. The Japanese get naked to uphold a 500-year-old tradition while an Australian woman dresses up as a gorilla to catch a flasher.

10Smurf-tastic

Thousands assembled in the German village of Lauchringen to set the new world record for the largest gathering of Smurfs.The event was organized by a group called Da Traditionsverein. According to the group’s Facebook page, the occasion drew 2,762 people who donned pointy hats, white pants, and blue paint to resemble the characters from the beloved comic book.The Record Institute for Germany was there to officially confirm the number of the crowd, although it is still waiting for approval from Guinness World Records. To be eligible for the record, each participant had to have their skin either painted blue or covered by clothing. The white cap was also mandatory, although red was allowed for people dressed up as Papa Smurf. This was actually the second time that organizers attempted to break the record. They first tried it in 2016 but managed to assemble only 2,149 people. This time, their efforts overshadowed the previous record of 2,510 Smurfs set in 2009 at Swansea University in Wales.[1]

9Spider Glow

Scientists found fossils of spiders whose eyes still glowed in the dark even though they died 110 million years ago.Researchers from the Korea Polar Research Institute and the University of Kansas were exploring a Mesozoic shale deposit in South Korea called the Jinju Formation. They uncovered 10 spider fossils.This was noteworthy enough on its own. These kinds of finds are exceedingly rare because soft, squishy spiders don’t make very good fossils and are typically found only in amber. However, two of them were even more exciting because their eyes still shone in the dark even after all this time.Most likely, the source of the glow was the tapetum. This is a reflective layer of tissue in the eye that many animals have. It helps with their night vision but also causes the eyes to shine in the dark. Researchers believe that this could be the first preservation of a spider’s tapetum in the entire fossil record.[2]Scientists are also curious about the circumstances that led to the arachnids being preserved in shale. Other creatures such as fish and crustaceans were also present in the rocks, so they could have all fallen victim to a disastrous event like an algal bloom.


8A Cool Heist

One of the most bizarre heists in recent memory occurred in Newfoundland, Canada, as thieves made off with 30,000 liters (7,925 gal) of iceberg water from a vodka distillery.The criminals targeted a warehouse in the historic community of Port Union. The victim was Iceberg Vodka. As its name suggests, the company uses real iceberg water in the manufacturing of its product.CEO David Meyers says the stolen liquid could have been used to make 150,000 bottles of vodka. However, he does not expect the company to suffer too much after its loss. The water was insured, and it was only valued at C$9,000 to C$12,000. That being said, the biggest problem is that the giant ice blocks can only be harvested once a year when the icebergs move closer to the Newfoundland coast.[3] Meyers does not believe that the crime was one of simple opportunity. The thieves went through “a bit of work” to bypass the locked gate and door and brought along some kind of tanker to load and transport tens of thousands of liters of iceberg water. The original tank which contained the liquid had been drained and left behind. 


7Wickedness In Creswell Crags

There was a time when people were really, really afraid of something in Creswell Crags, a limestone gorge on the border between Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, England. That’s the conclusion of heritage experts after they found inside what could be Britain’s largest assemblage of apotropaic signs—which are intended to ward off evil.The markings include hundreds of symbols, letters, and patterns which were likely carved from the 16th century onward when fear of witchcraft became widespread. It is truly remarkable how long it took for people to realize the markings were there. This is especially surprising given that ice age art was found inside the cave in 2003 and attracted a lot of attention.However, it wasn’t until last year that two keen-eyed cavers spotted a couple of symbols and alerted members of the Creswell Heritage Trust as to their meaning. The director of the trust embarrassingly confessed that they had been telling people the markings were Victorian graffiti.This prompted a closer inspection of the cave. Researchers were shocked to discover that the walls were covered in symbols. So far, they have found a thousand and counting.[4] Most of them are generic, such as PM for Pace Maria or a double V meaning Virgin of Virgins. It might be hard to tell exactly what it was about Creswell Crags that terrified people so much.

6The Luckiest Men In Japan

Thousands of Japanese men in Okayama stripped down to their loincloths and crowded together to search for two sticks believed to bring them good luck in the year to come.The tradition is called Saidaiji Eyo, and it dates back over 500 years to the Muromachi period. Last Saturday, an estimated 10,000 men gathered at the Kinryozan Saidaiji Buddhist temple in Okayama to participate.First, they took off their clothes and put on white loincloths. Then they all...

Watch Deadly Shootout Between an Officer and an Illegal Alien

Blue Lives Matter: Napa Valley County Deputy Riley Jarecki fired at least 15 rounds at Javier Hernandez Morales after he began shooting. She spotted him parked the wrong way and started questioning him when he soon opened fire.

Hernandez Morales drew a .22-caliber revolver and immediately fired at least one round directly at the deputy.

“Hernandez Morales fired from close proximity, essentially without warning, and it’s pretty obvious to us he intended to kill her,” Undersheriff Crawford told the San Francisco Chronicle on Wednesday.

Somehow she escaped death, but he didn’t. Listen to how young she sounds in the video below.

Fox News reported this morning that he had been deported three times.

“It really can’t get any more clear than this,” Napa Valley County Undersheriff Jon Crawford told the Napa Valley Register. “It’s graphic, it’s brutal, it’s sudden. Realistically it’s just a great reminder that we need to stay vigilant.”

ICE regrets that these criminal aliens are allowed to roam freely and that California prevents their law enforcement partners from cooperating with them.

VIDEO: Conservative attacked by leftist nutjob at Berkeley

A conservative was punched in the face while helping students recruit for a conservative group at UC-Berkeley.
The university confirmed to Campus Reform that an investigation is underway.

A conservative helping students recruit at the University of California-Berkeley was punched in the face this week.

Video footage obtained exclusively by Campus Reform shows Hayden Williams, a Leadership Institute field representative, was punched multiple times by an unidentified person calling him a “racist...b*tch." The Leadership Institute is Campus Reform's parent organization. At the time of the incident, the alleged victim was helping students recruit other conservatives for Turning Point USA behind a table with a sign that read, "hate crime hoaxes hurt real victims,” a reference to the Jussie Smollett case in Chicago.
“The idea is free speech has consequences.... which include you getting assaulted if they find you promoting ideas others don't agree with."

But at least twice, the situation turned violent and now, police are asking for help in identifying the suspects.

“Mother f*cker. You racist little inbred b*tch. C**t!,” the man who punched the alleged victim shouted.

At one point, the same man said he would "shoot" Williams.

A UC-Berkeley spokesman confirmed with Campus Reform on Wednesday that the incident is currently under investigation.

WATCH:


In other footage obtained by Campus Reform, another person, also unidentified, approached the students, claiming they were “encouraging violence.” Williams told Campus Reform that as the physical confrontations took place, a number of onlookers simply watched.

“Some students nearby tabling were laughing, even one guy was smiling while I was being attacked and trying to hand me his flyer as a joke,” the alleged victim said. “The idea is free speech has consequences.... which include you getting assaulted if they find you promoting ideas others don't agree with.”

A student who asked to remain anonymous and was at the scene after...

If The FBI Said It, It Must Be True...


Why We Cannot Trust the FBI

Why Does The Media Downplay Hate Crimes Against Jews?

Last week, the media fell hard for the story of Jussie Smollett. Smollett, a gay, black actor on the TV show “Empire,” falsely claimed that he was attacked by two Donald Trump-loving rednecks on the mean streets of Chicago. Smollett said that he was out in the middle of the night in Chicago, purchasing a Subway sandwich, when two men who recognized him from “Empire” began to call him a “f—–” and a “n—–.” They then looped a rope around his neck and poured bleach on him while shouting, “This is MAGA country!”

There were a few problems with this story. First, Trump fans are not exactly the chief demographic for “Empire” (Nielsen estimates the show’s audience is 61 percent black). Second, Chicago is not exactly MAGA (Make America Great Again) country — only 12.5 percent of votes cast for president in 2016 went to Trump. Third, Smollett never lost control of his sandwich. Fourth, Smollett then waited 40 minutes to report the attack. Fifth, when the police asked for his phone to verify his claim that his manager had heard the attack, he refused.

Nonetheless, the Smollett attack dominated media coverage for weeks, with Smollett appearing on ABC’s “Good Morning America” to castigate his doubters as racists. Actress Ellen Page told Stephen Colbert’s late-night talk-show audience that the attack was Mike Pence’s fault. CNN’s Brooke Baldwin lamented, “This is America in 2019.”

Except it wasn’t. Smollett, it turned out, allegedly paid two of his friends to stage the attack. Smollett’s story, then, was false. The media allowed it to flower — and propped up Smollett’s claims that doubters were bigots — because it fit their narrative of America as deeply racist and homophobic in the era of Donald Trump. Even after the story fell apart, commentator Liz Plank of Vox appeared on CNN to explain, “There has been an increase in hate crimes against the LGBTQ community, against Muslims, against black people.”

Plank did not mention the group most bedeviled by an increase in reported hate crimes: Jews. Reported hate crime incidents and offenses against blacks rose between 2016 and 2017 approximately 13 percent; against LGBTQ people, 4 percent; against Muslims, 17 percent; against Jews, 26 percent. On a per capita basis, Jews are by far the most targeted group in the United States, about four times as likely to be targeted as black Americans, and twice as likely as LGBTQ Americans and Muslim Americans.
“The media care more about hate crimes that fit their narrative.”

YET ANOTHER ILLEGAL ALIEN HAS RAPED YET ANOTHER CHILD IN NORTH CAROLINA

IREDELL COUNTY, NC (The Statesville Record & Landmark) – A man who was living in Harmony and fled from authorities in late 2018 was arrested Monday and now faces a charge of rape involving a minor in Iredell County, according to the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff’s office said it received a report Oct. 8 alleging a 20-year-old man sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl. Detective Patrick Dixson was assigned to the case and interviewed the victim at the Dove House Children’s Advocacy Center in Statesville, according to the release.

The victim told investigators that she had been assaulted by Jesse Jacinto, who was living in the 100 block of Trivette Road in Harmony when the report was filed, according to the release.

The release also said that Dixson interviewed several witnesses and received information that...

The Democratic Party is in a Socialist Spiral

The “progressive” Left has put together an "Saturday Night Live" sketch of presidential campaign promises, and they are just getting started. The policy platform has become a twisted parody of itself: abolish private healthcare, enact 90 percent marginal income tax rates, and entertain the idea of federalizing huge swaths of our election system. Welcome to the new Democratic Party.

Each contender is so desperate to out-left the others, the party has completely abandoned middle America and taken a swan dive into an unabashed socialist agenda.

Democrats have a long tradition of wanting to reduce the rights of the individual and increase federal control over nearly every aspect of our lives. However, even the most die-hard progressive would admit the direction of the party has taken a sharp left turn.

Socialism used to be a dirty word in our politics, but not anymore. Democratic politicians saw the wave of grassroots enthusiasm in 2016 surrounding the self-declared socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and they were quick to jump on the bandwagon.

Leading the charge of opportunistic socialism is Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. In the rare moments when Warren takes a break from lecturing us on her family history, she likes to go on a diatribe about the inherent evil of wealthy people. She recently suggested a massive tax on people with more than $50 million in assets but declined to share the details of the plan.

The Warren plan would include weaponizing the IRS once again to target a percentage of the country paying the tax with a mandatory “audit quota” every year. What percentage that is, we don’t know yet.

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., told attendees of a CNN televised town hall that she plans to abolish private health insurance and enact a government-funded single-payer healthcare system. She did not share the details for how this plan will address our existing $122 trillion in U.S. unfunded liabilities, including federal debt, Medicare, Social Security, and federal employee and veteran benefits.

Not even Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s, D-N.Y., proposed 70 percent income tax could pay off that kind of invoice. Of course, figuring out how to pay for these programs is a problem for another day. Telling progressive voters what they want to hear in any given political moment costs...

Comedian’s Spoof Video Showing What Smollett ‘Really Did’ That Night Is Hilarious

While various elements of the Jussie Smollett case are very serious, some have pointed out some of the humor in the fact that his tale sounded like a badly written script.

Comedian Dale Cover might have set the gold standard with a video he posted to YouTube video on Tuesday that purports to tell “The Truth About Jussie Smollett from Empire.”

“Was it a hate crime or a hoax,” the YouTube description reads. “In this video, we got breaking news showing the real story. We find out just who the two Nigerian’s (sic) were and their alleged role in the staged attack.”


Cover began the video by establishing himself in the role of Smollett, recounting the events surrounding the hoax attack as if...

Mueller’s ‘Foreign Agent’ Prosecutions May Lead to Probes of Green Groups


By invoking a law regulating foreign agents to pursue prosecution of former Trump campaign officials, special counsel Robert Mueller opened the door to more intense scrutiny of some U.S. environmental groups, according to legal analysts who say China and Russia use such groups to influence America’s energy policy.
But these legal analysts said they also see a danger that Mueller’s investigation could set a precedent for the Justice Department to “selectively enforce” the Foreign Agents Registration Act in a manner that undermines the rule of law and potentially jeopardizes national security.

The Trump administration, they say, should closely examine the relationship between environmental advocacy groups and foreign governments that are considered strategic competitors of the U.S.

“If the Mueller probe has any real benefit, it is that it opened the door for the Justice Department to employ FARA as a basis to investigate green groups that are undermining our country and aiding socialist/communist regimes,” lawyer Mark Fitzgibbons told The Daily Signal.

Because these same environmental groups persistently lobby for policy changes to restrict U.S. energy use and the projection of U.S. military power, the groups may operate at the direction and encouragement of hostile foreign actors, Fitzgibbons and other reform proponents argue.

The Foreign Agents Registration Act, which predates World War II, requires anyone who acts as an agent of foreign principals “in a political or quasi-political capacity” to disclose that relationship periodically, as well as “activities, receipts, and disbursements in support of those activities,”according to the Justice Department.

But because FARA has not been strictly enforced, little case history and precedent exist for investigations into the actions of possible foreign agents who decline to disclose their activities, Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, a Washington-based nonprofit government watchdog, told The Daily Signal in a phone interview.

Americans and their elected representatives have been deprived of the openness and transparency they need to evaluate the political activism and legal tactics of environmental advocacy groups, Fitton said.

‘Selectively Enforced’

The disclosure requirements of the Foreign Agents Registration Act explicitly state that information made available through registration would help ensure that citizens and officials can get the specifics they need to evaluate the activities of anyone who registers “in light of their function as foreign agents.”

But Fitton expressed concern that the law could be misused and misapplied to advance a political...

Rosenstein Denies “Silent Coup” to Oust President Trump

Former FBI Director Andrew McCabe revealed that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had discussed wire tapping the president, a revelation that analysts and Sara Carter suggests was a “silent coup” to oust President Trump.

In a 60 Minutes interview that aired Sunday, McCabe said the two hoped to invoke the 25th amendment to oust the President from the White House. The Former FBI Director has been touring the media circuit to promote his new book “The Threat”. Rosenstein has pushed back on allegations of wire tapping the president.

Moreover, McCabe told NPR, “I invite the committee, or any other committee on the Hill … to ask themselves why is it two of the highest ranking officials in the Department of Justice and the FBI in May of 2017 had to even consider the fact that the president of the United States might pose a national security risk to this country.”


The “Silent Coup” Attempt

Carter, who has called the action a “silent coup” since 2018, reacted to the news telling Dr. Sebastian Gorka, “Americans have to be so concerned over this because these are armed agents of the federal government that are attempting and discussing invoking the 25th amendment on a president of the United States.”

Carter spoke to a number of law enforcement sources who confirmed that senior officials within the FBI had operated with extraordinary bias. According to Carter, others should be investigated and a thorough investigation by the DOJ may drag in more senior Obama administration officials that instigated the baseless two-year investigation into Trump and his campaign.

A Liar and Leaker

However, McCabe was fired from the FBI in March 2018 after he lied to investigators and leaked classified information to the media. The President reacted to McCabe’s exit calling it...
