Home Security System Intentionally Destroyed In Murder Investigation

July 10, 2013 – 12:00 am

Earlier this week, New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested and charged with the murder of Odin Lloyd. Less than two hours after this announcement, the Patriots officially released Hernandez. Some of the former NFL player’s suspicious activity that led to his arrest include intentionally destroying his cell phone and home security system (like the ones shown here: www.homesecurityinfo.com) to potentially hide evidence from law enforcement. He also hired a cleaning crew to scrub his entire mansion from top to bottom just before the police came knocking with a warrant to confiscate his cell phone and security system. The footage that has been recovered by investigators shows Hernandez leaving his home with a gun and another man returning to Hernandez’s home, also carrying a gun.

But you don’t have to look to the surveillance video to see Hernandez’s criminal involvement. His record dates back to when he was an undergrad at the University of Florida and tested positive for marijuana multiple while playing as a tight end on the school’s football team. And more recently (before the latest murder charge), Hernandez had a lawsuit filed against him for allegedly shooting Alexander Bradley while they were riding in a car together, which resulted in Bradley losing his right eye. With an already tarnished reputation and his previous run-ins with the law, the destroyed security system surveillance doesn’t dismiss the fact that he’s already got a criminal record. Overall, things aren’t looking good for Aaron Hernandez.

Will The Federal Government Continue To Release Illegal Immigrants?

May 23, 2013 – 12:00 am

The discussion of illegal immigrants and government is more a discussion about money than it is about the rights of citizens.

A government hemorrhaging money and looking for sources of income has turned to partnering with the private prison system to generate income.

Holding illegal immigrants provide very little income for these prisons when compared with holding citizens.

When holding an illegal immigrant, the government is responsible for the care of that person. That person must be fed, sheltered and clothed all on the dime of the taxpayer. That immigrant will have no family Read the rest of this entry »

Will The Upward Trend In The Stock Market Continue?

March 20, 2013 – 12:00 am

The stock market has rocketed upward after reaching its nadir in 2009. However, there are sufficient troubling signals and intrinsic instabilities that it is unlikely that the upward trend will be able to continue forever.

Widening income disparity is not a good sign for the stock market. Although it means that the people who are doing well are doing very well, it also implies a narrowing base of committed individuals. In the long run that is not a firm foundation for secure business.Didn’t catch that? < Read the rest of this entry »

Questions Over Death Of Hugo Chavez

March 18, 2013 – 12:00 am

In 2009, a perceived attempt to down Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez’s plane as it landed in El Salvador resulted in Chavez himself saying,”I have no doubt that the U.S. intelligence services are behind this.”

When a leader of a major oil power and a pariah to the international established order dies in the prime of life, at age 58, conspiracy theories are going to inevitably surface. When Hugo Chavez died in March 2013, allegedly of complications Read the rest of this entry »

Impacts Of The Sequester On The Military

President Obama signed the sequester into law. It will affect all government spending. A reduction in military spending by 550 billion dollars will remove funds from national security and military operations. The sequester will not affect military spending for wars or military personnel.

The sequester is projected to have devastating effects on national defense capabilities, soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines with almost 55 billion cut from the Department of Defense (DOD) budget. Subject to sequestration are the DOD funds not committed to military contracts by January 2, 2012. A reduction in funding for the war operations Read the rest of this entry »

Locusts Invade Egypt Days Before Passover

March 16, 2013 – 12:00 am

And you thought these things only happened in the bible……..

Reports are pouring in from Egypt and Israel of a plague like something straight from the pages of Exodus. Moses and Pharaoh were unavailable for comment, but Israel’s Ministry of Agriculture says that swarms of locusts the size of small birds have been observed in Cairo, the Sinai Peninsula, and from the southern Negev Desert all the way to northern Israel. Not content to interfere with transportation by smearing up countless car and truck windshields, the bugs have brought ruin Read the rest of this entry »

How Will The Catholics Pick The Next Pope?

March 13, 2013 – 12:00 am

More than 140 cardinals are set to begin the process of selecting a new pope following the retirement of Pope Benedict XVI. Cardinal Timothy Dolan didn’t offer any hints as to who may be the next pope, but in response to a reporter’s question asking if the new pontiff would bring radical change, he said “yes.” Dolan is among the cardinals handpicked by the retired pope to choose his successor.

While the process normally doesn’t start until 15-20 days after a pope is out of power, the outgoing pope amended the rules to start the Read the rest of this entry »
