stumbleupon.com Traffic Statistics

Stumble was bought out by a company that owns Mix.com. To keep the stories up stumblers have to transfer over to Mix.com by June 30th when stumbleupon is no more.

Stumbleupon is currently rated at 2155 globally and 1052 in the US.
Mix.com is rated 36,597 in the US. They are rated 162,501 globally.
The site IMHO is slow and convoluted. Folks will have a heck of a time finding anything.
I think this is another example of corporate censorship.

13-minute video: Why crop circles are NOT man-made

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Janet Ossebaard has researched crop circles since 1995. Her powerful 13-minute demonstration of eleven factors of genuine crop circles that have no known explanation, nor have been replicated:

Among these bio-anomalous qualities (footnotes at link):
The immaculate patterns that refer to the highest forms in geometry
The altered biochemical composition of the grain seeds and the soil
The increase in the crystal structure of clay minerals in the soil, something that is "officially" only possible in sedimentary rock (2)
The complex mutual weaving patterns in the flattened stalks (3), (4)
The fact that they can apparently be formed within several minutes, even in fields which are constantly monitored (because every croppy would like to catch the makers in the act) (5)
Some circles in the formations follow the uneven terrain. They are deformed in order to appear perfectly round from above.

2nd American Revolution essential stages: 1) Recognize the US .01% illegal rogue state empire, 2) Speak up, 3) Engage where Life/God gives you battles to offer choice for ‘We the People’

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“There are three scales of intelligence, one which understands by itself, a second which understands what is shown it by others, and a third which understands neither by itself nor on the showing of others.”~ Niccolò Machiavelli. The Prince, Chapter XXII, page 172 (London: Oxford University Press, 1913) Translated by Ninian Hill Thomson

After 41 years of civic activism to end empire-imposed poverty, history-endured, and Orwellian-illegal Wars of Aggression started with lies known to be lies as they were told, and have truth in media and education, I conclude the role of the awake has been to offer fundamental choices to We the People for standing for virtue or kneeling to evil in either willful complicity or willful disconnection from our Brothers and Sisters’ enslavement as work animals, “food” and sadistic entertainment for evil.

I do my best to artistically represent the human condition here.

Did Fracking Cause the Hawaii Volcano Eruption?

Interestingly, on the Big Island of Hawaii, where the Kilauea volcano has explosively erupted, there is a geothermal energy plant.

Webmaster addition:Okay, one more time...

The wells to carry heat from underground to the Puna Geothermal Venture were drilled conventionally.

There is no fracking in Hawaii.

That is because there is no oil and gas in Hawaii.

It's all lava, remember?

War Crimes Committed by Federal Forces During the Civil War

We have all come been taught that Abraham Lincoln was a gentle man, “Honest Abe,” a man who advocated “malice toward none and charity for all.” We have been taught that Lincoln would have opposed the policy pursued by Radical Republicans like Thaddeus Stevens, which pushed for vengeful, retributive policies against the South. We have been taught in books, movies and documentaries that Lincoln instead preferred a policy of healing that neither punished the defeated Confederate government and Army nor average Southern civilians.

The Sand Creek Massacre

Colorado Territory during the 1850's and 1860's was a place of phenomenal growth in Colorado homes spurred by gold and silver rushes. Miners by the tens of thousands had elbowed theirway into mineral fields, dislocating and angering the Cheyennes and Arapahos. The Pike's Peak Gold Rush in 1858 brought the the tension to a boiling point. Tribesmen attacked wagon trains, mining camps, and stagecoach lines during the Civil War, when the military garrisons out west were reduced by the war. One white family died within 20 miles of Denver. This outbreak of violence is sometimes referred to as the Cheyenne-Arapaho War or the Colorado War of 1864-65.

Was My Lai just one of many massacres in Vietnam War?

In a war in which lip service was often paid to winning "hearts and minds", the US military had an almost singular focus on one defining measure of success in Vietnam: the body count - the number of enemy killed in action.Very quickly the phrase - "If it's dead and Vietnamese, it's VC" - became a defining dictum of the war and civilian corpses were regularly tallied as slain enemies or Viet Cong.

Civilians, including women and children, were killed for running from soldiers or helicopter gunships that had fired warning shots, or being in a village suspected of sheltering Viet Cong.

At the time, much of this activity went unreported - but not unnoticed.

Assange's refuge in Ecuadorian embassy 'in jeopardy'

Julian Assange's nearly six-year refuge at the Ecuadorian embassy in London is in danger, opening the WikiLeaks founder to arrest by British authorities and potential extradition to the US, multiple sources with knowledge tell CNN.

While Assange has in the past claimed his position in the embassy was under threat, sources say his current situation is "unusually bad" and that he could leave the embassy "any day now," either because he will be forced out or made to feel so restricted that he might choose to leave on his own. His position there is "in jeopardy," one source familiar with the matter said.
Assange's exit from the embassy could open a new phase for US investigators eager to find out what he knows.

Harvard Policy Forces Male, Female Choirs to Accept Opposite Genders

There is already a mixed choir at Harvard, the Harvard Radcliffe Collegium Musicum. Though the leadership of the Glee Club told the student newspaper, the Harvard Crimson, that he does not foresee any musical changes to the group, it is not clear how the Glee Club and the Choral Society will offer musical repertoires that differ from the mixed Collegium Musicum, once they no longer maintain their traditional single-sex membership.

The national anthem in sports (spoiler: it wasn't always this way)

In America, the game doesn't start until the national anthem plays. It's not a mandate, it's just a fact, as culturally ingrained as team colors and touchdown cheers.

The anthem kicks off every NFL, MLB, NBA, MLS and NHL game featuring an American team, and is played before every NASCAR race.

The tradition runs deep, and it's easy to forget it wasn't always this way. It's also easy to forget that, while there are game-day expectations about how we should handle ourselves during the anthem, there's very little actually set in stone.

San Francisco has become such a filthy liberal s##thole that even the TOURISM industry is begging city leaders to clean it up

“The streets are filthy. There’s trash everywhere. It’s disgusting,” argued Joe D’Alessandro, president of S.F. Travel, the city’s visitors’ bureau. “I’ve never seen any other city like this – the homelessness, dirty streets, drug use on the streets, smash-and-grabs. How can it be? How can it have gotten to this point?”

It’s worth noting that Joe D’Alessandro’s job is to essentially promote San Francisco for the purpose of bringing in tourists, so the fact that he is openly speaking about how bad the city has gotten in terms of garbage and homelessness is truly telling.
