Cult Leader Thinks He's Jesus (Documentary Exclusive)

I will admit, after watching this video, he is the best cult leader I have ever heard of. Looks like a nice guy and a nice place to live and he doesn't force people to stay. The girls school and the girls "roles" is complete BS though and not buying any of the religious stuff of course.

What Cold? Earth Had Its Fourth-Warmest January

Continuing the nearly 29-year streak of above-average global monthly temperatures, January came in as the fourth-warmest such month on record, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). This makes it the warmest January since 2007, NOAA said, and was the 38th-straight January with a global temperature above the 20th century average.

The global warmth came in stark contrast to the “polar vortex” induced conditions the eastern U.S. and Canada experienced, as well as the cold and stormy conditions in the UK and parts of Russia. Unusually high temperatures elsewhere more than compensated for these cold regions. For example, Southern Hemisphere land temperatures were the highest on record for the month.

In other words, it may have been cold where you were, but globally, the planet’s hot streak continues unabated. If February's global average temperature comes in above the 20th century average, it would make 29 years since the last below average month. Not only that, but increasing odds of an El Niño event occurring by the end of the summer means that global average surface temperatures may vault to record levels by late this year and into 2015.

El Niño events are characterized by unusually mild ocean temperatures in the equatorial tropical Pacific Ocean, and they tend to increase global average surface temperatures by contributing extra heat to the atmosphere, in addition to the already apparent effects of manmade global warming.


Martinez administration OK'd payments for booze, meals for pro-GOP firm in bogus audit deal


New Mexico’s Attorney General, Gary King, says auditors given $3,000,000 by Governor Martinez’s administration to find fraud among the state’s behavioral health services erroneously flagged tens-of-thousands of dollars in claims that they labeled likely fraudulent.

And new word today that the audit firm, PCG, was a big donor to Republican governors across the country in states where they had contracts or would soon get them under Republican leadership.

First the audit.
