Rare Christmas Full Moon a Cosmic Gift for the Holidays: What to Expect

If you live anywhere east of the Mississippi River this year, you likely will not have snow on the ground on Christmas morning, but you will have a full moon. The moon will officially reach peak fullness at 6:11 a.m. EST (1111 GMT). A full moon coinciding with Christmas does not happen often — usually, once every 19 years. But this time, it is different, because a full moon on Christmas hasn’t happened in nearly four decades. The last one was in 1977, and that’s because of the vagaries of our calendar and a lunar cycle known for almost 2,500 years.

58 Facts About The U.S. Economy From 2015 That Are Almost Too Crazy To Believe

Source: Economic Collapse Blog | The world didn’t completely fall apart in 2015, but it is undeniable that an immense amount of damage was done to the U.S. economy.  This year the middle class continued to deteriorate, more Americans than ever found themselves living in poverty, and the debt bubble that we are living in expanded to absolutely ridiculous proportions.  Toward the end of the year, a new global financial crisis erupted, and it threatens to completely spiral out of control as we enter 2016.  Over the past six months, I have been repeatedly stressing to my readers that so many of the exact same patterns that immediately preceded the financial crisis of 2008 are happening once again, and trillions of dollars of stock market wealth has already been wiped out globally.  Some of the largest economies on the entire planet such as Brazil and Canada have already plunged into deep recessions, and just about every leading indicator that you can think of is screaming that the U.S. is heading into one.  So don’t be fooled by all the happy talk coming from Barack Obama and the mainstream media.  When you look at the cold, hard numbers, they tell a completely different story.  The following are 58 facts about the U.S. economy from 2015 that are almost too crazy to believe…

More Than 45,000 People Register Drones in 2 Days

WEB Notes: This seems like yet another tax. To my knowledge RC planes and helicopters have never required registration, but drones do. I do realize the hobby has taken off, but how is registering your drone going to keep someone safe? More control by the government and everyone is so quick to go and sign up.

Why There’s Not a Dime’s Worth of Difference Between Any of Them (Democrats and Republicans)

WEB Notes: I think more and more people are finally seeing this for the truth that it is. In a conversation the other day a few individuals made the same statement. I did not expect to hear it from them which shows that some people are starting to see the show called government for what it is.

California Has a Huge Gas Leak, and Crews Can’t Stop It Yet

While the world was hammering out a historic agreement to curb carbon emissions—urged along by California, no less—the state was dealing with an embarrassing belch of its own. Methane, a greenhouse gas 70 times more potent than carbon dioxide, has been leaking out of a natural gas storage site in southern California for nearly two months, and a fix won’t arrive until spring.

The site is leaking up to 145,000 pounds per hour, according to the California Air Resources Board. In just the first month, that’s added up to 80,000 tons, or about a quarter of the state’s ordinary methane emissions over the same period. The Federal Aviation Administration recently banned low-flying planes from flying over the site, since engines plus combustible gas equals kaboom.

Christians in China feel full force of authorities’ repression

The slight and soft-spoken Protestant preacher is no stranger to surveillance. Su has worked for years in China’s unregistered “house churches,” and he said he has been interrogated more times than he can count. But even Su is surprised by what has happened in Guiyang this month: a crackdown that has led to the shuttering of the thriving Living Stone Church, the detention of a pastor on charges of “possessing state secrets” and the shadowing of dozens of churchgoers by police.
