Massive Killer Diamondback Rattlesnake Caught in Arkansas

 

imageThis behemoth of a diamondback could be the largest ever found.

A man in southern Sebastian County, Arkansas may have killed one of the largest western diamondback rattlesnakes ever seen after it allegedly attacked several of his dogs. According to the man, who remains unidentified, the snake was found on his property in West Hartford and bit at least two of his dogs, killing one. He dispatched it afterwards and the pictures of the snake were widely shared on social media.

Judging from the photograph, experts estimated the diamondback at around eight feet in length, which if accurate would make it the largest western diamondback in the world.

“Normally [they’re] around four or five feet, depending on what type it is,” pet store owner Dan Jones told 5 News.

Western diamondbacks over six feet in length are rare and only one reliable specimen has been found to be over seven feet. According to the Amphibian and Reptile Diversity Research Center at the University of Texas, that snake was captured in Cedar Hill, Texas and measured 92 inches overall. It is commonly believed that western Texas has some of the largest western diamondbacks. Further to the south, the diamondback holds a fearsome reputation as the single most dangerous snake—in terms of human fatalities—in Mexico. Part of this is due to the snake’s aggressiveness. Western diamondbacks are one of the few rattlesnakes that will stand their ground when threatened and if the rattling fails to discourage its foe, the snake will strike. Their venom carries a 10 to 20 percent fatality rate if untreated.

Despite the threat these creatures pose, it is illegal to kill a rattlesnake in most states unless you are in immediate danger. Experts say that venomous snakes are useful in cutting down on local rodent populations, which without predators could grow quickly out of control.

It is currently unknown if wildlife officials are investigating the snake’s death.

It’s Almost Not Funny

Posted on 10/29/2015 by Wirecutter

A Russian arrives in New York City as a new immigrant to the United States. It’s 11:00 AM on a Wednesday.

He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, “Thank you Mr. American for letting me come into this country, giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care, and a free education!”

The passerby says, “You are mistaken, I am a Mexican and here illegally.”

The man goes on and encounters another passerby. “Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America.”

The person says, “I not American, I Vietnamese and here on a Green Card that expired two years ago.”

The new arrival walks farther and stops the next person he sees, then shaking his hand, and says, “Thank you for wonderful America!” That person puts up his hand and says, “I am from Middle East. I am not American. It was easy to get here via Arizona.”

He finally sees a nice lady and asks, “Are you an American?”

She says, “No, I am from Africa here on an Education Green Card that expired 10 years ago.”

Puzzled, he asks her, “Where are all the Americans?”

The African lady checks her watch and says: “Probably at work.”

Hillary Trashed the VA Scandal: Veterans Have a Thing or Two to Say About That

Hillary Clinton’s efforts to claim the deadly neglect of veterans by Obama VA officials is all a made-up Republican conspiracy is drawing a harsh response from veterans, and investigators looking into the misconduct.

Responding to investigations finding over 64,000 veterans had medical procedures canceled in order to cover up a case backlog, and dozens of veterans died as a result, Clinton called it “overblown” and that Republicans invented the controversy……SHE LIED AGAIN!

“It’s not been as widespread as it has been made out to be,” Clinton said on MSNBC, even though the VA’s own inspector general called the scandal “widespread.”

Even with over 64,000 cases of neglect, Clinton dismissed veterans’ complaints as “overblown.”

Clinton’s attack on veterans came after a new investigation found the neglect is still occurring at the same VA facilities originally cited.

Veterans advocates are appalled.

“The VA scandal was caused by dishonest bureaucrats who chose to whitewash the department’s problems rather than solve them,” said House Veterans Affairs Committee chairman Jeff Miller (R-FL). “Those who repeat that same shameful pattern of behavior are only shortchanging veterans while giving failed VA bureaucrats cover for continued malfeasance.”

Miller took aim directly at Clinton’s politicization of the issue.

There is simply no denying that the problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs are indeed widespread,” he said. “Anyone who would claim the opposite simply isn’t paying attention.”

“Hillary Clinton has shown that just like the Obama Administration, of which she was a part, she will minimize the deep-rooted problems within the Department of Veterans Affairs and engage in partisan attacks against those who propose real and fundamental reform,” said Concerned Veterans of America CEO Pete Hegseth, himself a former U.S. Army major awarded two Bronze Stars.

From The Dept. Of Energy: There Is MORE GAS Coming From OBAMA Than All The Pumkins In The World!

image

Via Free Beacon:

The Department of Energy claims that Halloween pumpkins contribute to climate change, suggesting that the plants can be converted to biofuel in order to spare the environment.

“With the passing of Halloween, millions of pounds of pumpkins have turned from seasonal decorations to trash destined for landfills, adding to more than 254 million tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) produced in the United States every year,” a post to the Energy Department’s website this week read.

“At landfills, MSW decomposes and eventually turns into methane–a harmful greenhouse gas that plays a part in climate change, with more than 20 times the warming effect of carbon dioxide (CO2),” the government agency warned.

Bozell: CNBC Debate Was an ‘Encyclopedic Example of Liberal Media Bias’

MRC president Brent Bozell issued a statement Wednesday night criticizing the overall tilt and tone of the CNBC Republican debate in Boulder:

“The CNBC moderators acted less like journalists and more like Clinton campaign operatives. What was supposed to be a serious debate about the many issues plaguing our economy was given up for one Democratic talking point after another served up by the so-call ‘moderators.’ They clearly war-gamed this thinking that a relentless series of personal attacks on the candidates would somehow drive their ratings and help Hillary Clinton.

The CNBC debate will go down in history as an encyclopedic example of liberal media bias on stage. The audience roared its disdain for these so-called ‘journalists,’ and all of America heard it. CNBC should be embarrassed for their pitiful display of partisan liberal media bias and apologize to the GOP candidates and the American people.”

Legal Analyst Predicts FBI Will Recommend Hillary Clinton be Indicted for National Security Crimes

by Frank Camp

You can watch the VIDEO HERE http://www.ijreview.com/2015/09/432612-new-email-discovery-suggests-hillary-clinton-may-lied-oath/

Last week, the Hillary Clinton server soap opera continued after the discovery of a string of previously undisclosed emails.

The emails included an exchange between Clinton and General David Petraeus, then-head of CENTCOM, in January and February of 2009.

This wouldn’t be particularly compelling, given the more dramatic turns this story has taken, if Clinton hadn’t signed an affidavit on August 10, swearing “under penalty of perjury” that she had turned over all government related emails.

According to the Associated Press:

“The Petraeus emails, first discovered by the Defense Department and then passed to the State Department’s inspector general challenge…Clinton’s claim that she has handed over the entirety of her work emails from the account.”
Appearing on Fox News’ “The Kelly File,” Judge Andrew Napolitano predicted Clinton’s defense, saying:

“She’s going to argue–because she stated…that she’s not a technical person, and she didn’t pay attention to emails, and she doesn’t understand exactly how the entire email system works–I’m afraid that’s not an argument that the judge wants to hear, and will essentially fall on deaf ears.”
Speaking to potential legal action, Napolitano added:

“I think that the FBI will recommend to the Justice Department that she be indicted.”
IJ spoke to Tom Fitton, President of the conservative watchdog organization Judicial Watch, who said that while he couldn’t speak to the charges of perjury:

“There’s no doubt [Clinton’s] statement was not accurate.”
At some point, it will be up to the judge to decide if Clinton perjured herself, or if her alleged lack of knowledge precludes her from such a charge.

This week I am giving the award to Thunder Rodent Thighs. She just lied her ass off to the Benghazi committee and she got away with it. What are they gonna do? Nothing. She’s laughing at the Republicans. She is a crook. She has committed treason. It doesn’t matter. There is no longer the rule of law in this country. It died a long time ago. Her husband should have been forced to resign as president in disgrace or thrown out of office, not because of sex, but other violations of the law like the 1000 FBI files. One of the grounds of impeachment for Nixon was requesting one FBI file that he didn’t even get. But BJ was protected by his corrupt party and by the corrupt media which is nothing more than the propaganda arm of his corrupt party. The current president enforces laws and makes laws on his whims. Who’s gonna stop him? The Stupid Party? Once again, he’s protected by his corrupt party and his skin color, not to mention the LSM propaganda arm of the Dimocrat Party. Watch this video by Bill Whittle.

This is the way things work in banana republics. I once said that we would devolve into a socialist dictatorshipo within the next 30 to 50 years. I now think it will be within 20 to 40 years. The rule of law is dead in this country unless we have a Republican president.

Cankles skates again. She’s a Dimocrat and she’s a Clinton. She’s also a crook and a traitor not to mention being an asshole.

Hillary Clinton complained to Rachel Maddow this weekend that the VA Scandal was not serious – And just part of the GOP ideological agenda.

A 90-page report released by Senator Tom Coburn in 2014 found that nearly 1,000 US veterans died as a result of subpar treatment.

Hillary says this is not a serious scandal.

“Veterans who do get treated are satisfied with their treatment… Nobody would believe that from the coverage that you see and the constant berating of the VA that comes from the Republicans, in part in pursuit of the ideological agenda that they have. But it’s not been as widespread as it’s been made out to be.”

Hillary Clinton must think 1,000 dead veterans is not a scandal–

Here are 12 most damaging facts about the VA Scandal that Hillary says is not a scandal.

Here are the 12 most damaging facts from the report:

1. In the past decade, nearly 1,000 veterans died as a result of subpar treatment. Grieving families of these victims have been paid $845 millionover that time.

2. At least 82 veterans have died or were seriously injured because they waited too long for colonoscopies or endoscopies.

3. In the past three years, primary care appointments have increased by 50 percent, but the number of primary care doctors at the VA has only increased by 9 percent.

4. 57,000 new patients have waited at least 90 days for their first appointment at VA hospitals.

5. Veterans living in rural areas must travel an average of 63 miles to receive care.

6. Some VA staff confessed to the Government Accountability Office that they changed medical appointment dates to fit within the agency’s wait time performance goal of 14 days.

7. At the end of 2013, the VA had $34 billion leftover that they did not use to improve healthcare for veterans.

8. The VA spent $5.1 million on new software that was never used.

9. In 2010, the VA spent $80 million on travel-related expenses for its employees. One employee billed the VA $130,000 to cover his commute, hotel, and meal charges so he did not have to relocate.

10. Out of the 500 highest-paid US government officials, 483 work for the VA, including the top ten.

11. The VA has a pattern of giving bonuses to unworthy employees:

$8,216 to a radiologist who was unable to read mammogram and other x-ray images correctly;
$11,819 to a surgeon under suspension for leaving surgery early;
and $7,663 to a physician who practiced with an expired license for three months.
12. Nearly $1 billion was spent on building a state-of-the-art facility in Nevada but there aren’t enough doctors or nurses to treat patients there.

Hillary Clinton says 1,000 dead veterans is not a scandal.

Netanyahu’s Call For Civilians To Arm Themselves Has Saved Lives…

 

image

Democrats hate these types of statements in America.

Via Daily Caller:

The current “wave of terror” where Palestinians attack Israeli citizens has taken at least 10 lives, but the death toll might very well have been higher if it wasn’t for armed civilians.

Attackers are much more likely to die because civilians have armed themselves in recent weeks. Fatalities among Palestinians more than double that of stabbing victims during October.

Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu made a controversial call earlier this month for citizens who legally own firearms to bring them to the streets to increase security amid the wave of stabbings.

Weaving the Bridge at Q’eswachaka

Every year, local communities on either side of the Apurimac River Canyon in Peru use traditional Inka engineering techniques to rebuild the Q’eswachaka Bridge. The old bridge is taken down and the new bridge is built in only three days. The bridge has been rebuilt in this same location continually since the time of the Inka.
