Texas Cops Arrest Alleged Odessa Roadside ‘Serial Shooter’
[BREITBART] Ector County, Texas, Sheriff Mike Griffis announced on Friday that a suspected "serial shooter" is in jug. The arrest is expected to bring a series of roadside shootings in the Odessa, Texas, area that began on Tuesday. Odessa is also the scene of a recent mass-shooting incident that began after a highway patrol traffic stop.

One person is dead and another maimed in a series of shootings that began in Odessa shortly after midnight on Tuesday. In two other shooting incidents, the shooter only struck the vehicles and the occupants sustained no physical injuries, according to CBS7.

Late Friday afternoon, Sheriff Griffis announced they have a suspect in jug that they believe to be the shooter, KCBD NBC11 reported. "We cannot confirm it is the same individual (shooter), but we feel like it probably is," the sheriff stated.

The shootings appear to have involved a person pulling up to a broken down vehicle on the side of the road, the local NBC affiliate reported. In a shooting Thursday night at about 10:30, official responding to a call found one man dead near an overpass on Interstate 20. A second man sustained injuries from gunfire after being shot in the abdomen during a shooting on Tuesday.

CBS7 laid out the following timeline for the four shootings:
  • #1) Tuesday morning at 12:45 a.m. at 8th and Grant

  • #2) Then at 7:36 a.m. at I-20 and Highway 866

  • #3) That afternoon at Meteor Crater Road and I-20 near the Pilot truck stop

  • #4) Then last night [September 26) on Business 20

The alleged shooter appears to have used multiple handguns during the individual shootings. During the investigation, Sheriff Griffis said, "We are actively pursuing this individual, there are multiple agencies involved, there have been different weapons used and all appear to be from a handgun, but of different calibers. All of these incidents have been "roadside" related. We are asking the public to be "cautious" and if you see anything suspicious to call 911. WE WILL BRING HIM TO JUSTICE."

The First Photos of Lashana Lynch as 007 in James Bond Film No Time to Die Have Arrived
[Esquire] The announcement of Lashana Lynch’s casting as 007 this summer was big news, partially because of some confusion over the fact that she won’t be playing the actual character of James Bond in 2020’s No Time to Die, but a spy who inherits the codename in the wake of Bond’s retirement. Still, the casting of a black woman as 007 was pretty damn cool‐and now, the first images of Lynch on set in Italy are here.

In the photos, Lynch definitely looks the 007 part, wearing an action-ready black fatigue jumpsuit and strapped with enough fake ammo to take out a ton of henchmen. In the film, she plays a young MI6 agent who’s inherited the 007 codename, while Craig’s Bond emerges from retirement to in Jamaica to rescue a scientist who’s been taken hostage. It’s a venture that leads him "onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology," according to the movie’s official synopsis.

Puberty Blocking Drugs Used On ‘Trans Kids’ Have Killed More Than 6,000 People
[HOTAIR] Here’s a horror show of a story that you’re probably not going to see on CNN anytime soon. A report emerged on Thursday indicating that the puberty-blocking drug Leuprolide Acetate (Lupron) has resulted in tens of thousands of serious "adverse reactions" in patients, including more than six thousand deaths. That’s bad enough, but it’s even more significant when you consider that this is one of the drugs being administered by doctors to so-called "transgender children" to unnaturally prevent their normal sexual development. And the testing done on the drug by the FDA for such applications appears to be thin at best.

More than 6,300 adults have died from reactions to a drug that is used as a puberty blocker in gender-confused children, Food & Drug Administration data reportedly shows.

"Between 2012 and June 30 of this year, the FDA documented over 40,764 adverse reactions suffered by patients who took Leuprolide Acetate (Lupron), which is used as a hormone blocker. More than 25,500 reactions logged from 2014-2019 were considered ’serious,’ including 6,370 deaths," The Christian Post reported on Thursday.

"Lupron is being prescribed off-label for use in children who have been diagnosed with gender dysphoria despite the lack of formal FDA approval for that purpose," the outlet explained.
g(r)omgoru submitted the same story, commenting:
Inhalers killed what, 30 people in whole of USA? Well, think of it as evolution in action! (IMO, People who want their kid's gender changed shouldn't reproduce)

#1  Lupron is used in treating late stage prostate cancer or returning cancer. It has side effects but considering that late stage prostate cancer patients are running out of time anyway, many doctors will use it. Prostate cancer kills about 30,000 US citizens a year.

There is almost certainly less risk in giving lupron to young otherwise healthy patients.

This is not to say 'no risk', just less risk.

#2  I do hate this story. It is a bad statistic, as lord garth stated, based on treatment of profoundly unhealthy people (many of whom likely would have died no matter what they were given). There is no evidence listed here that shows these drugs are anywhere nearly as risky as this is making them sound (or which even concludes that the drugs were responsible for all of the deaths they were associated with; if I were taking to be taking morphine after a car crash and die anyways, I was not killed by morphine).

Moment of truth coming for Brexit with time running out, says EU
[DAWN] Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney warned on Friday that time was running out for Britannia and the Europe
...the land mass occupying the space between the English Channel and the Urals, also known as Moslem Lebensraum...
an Union to hammer out a divorce deal with the British Brexit minister also saying the moment of truth was approaching.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson
...pro-Brexit British prime minister, succeeding no-Brexit Theresa May. BoJo is noted as much for his sparkling personality and his hair as for his Conservative policies....
has vowed that Britannia will leave the EU on Oct 31 whether or not a deal has been agreed with the bloc, and while both sides say they are keen to reach an agreement, there is little sign of the deadlock being broken.

Johnson’s opponents say leaving the EU without a deal to keep most of its trading arrangements in place would plunge Britannia into economic chaos. The government says it has made preparations to avoid serious disruption.

The EU agreed a withdrawal package with former Prime Minister Theresa May but this was rejected three times by the British parliament over the "Irish backstop" ‐ an insurance policy to prevent the return of a hard border between the British province of Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic.

After a meeting with EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier in Brussels, Ireland’s Coveney said negotiations had to be on the basis of a "serious proposal" from the British on how they would replace the backstop.

"That hasn’t happened yet and until there is a serious proposal in writing ... then the gaps that are wide at the moment will remain. And time is running out," he told news hounds.

Complete hogwash, if you ask me. I find it difficult to believe that not having to pay the thieves in Brussels millions of $ (ok, pound sterling) every week will somehow be a bad thing for the British economy. It's just another thug scare tactic that's far too common with the press.

Zero external tariffs yet high internal tariffs(taxes) just fund the globalists and export jobs. Lowers taxes and raise tariffs.

#5  leaving the EU without a deal to keep most of its trading arrangements in place would plunge Britannia into economic chaos.

Oh noes! Permanent and total economic chaos until the heat death of the universe!!

I'm guessing there was a point in time where said trading arrangements didn't exist. Would it possibly be possible that people of good will could sit down together and work something out? It's not like the demand and supply of stuff is going away.

#6  After a meeting with EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier in Brussels, Ireland’s Coveney said negotiations had to be on the basis of a "serious proposal" from the British on how they would replace the backstop.

This "serious proposal" would leave Great Britain in the same status as San Marino. Monaco or Andorra? The EU would control England's borders and force England to follow EU Customs Authority, pay for the "privilege" and like it. Does this also mean that the "Open Borders" Treaty of Schingen would be enforced with any British opt-out be removed?

US militarizing intl. ties, punishing millions: Venezuela
[PRESSTV] Venezuela
...a country in Central America that sits on an enormous pool of oil. Formerly the most prospereous country in the region, it became infested with Commies sniffing almost unlimited wealth. It turned out the wealth wasn't unlimited, the economy collapsed under the clownish Hugo Chavez, the murder rate exceeds places like Honduras and El Salvador, and a significant proportion of the populace as refugeed to Colombia and points south...
's vice president says the US is imposing a new type of "state terrorism
... any action taken by a non-Moslem state that constrains the violent impulses of Moslems or their allies ...
" on millions of people around the world.

Executive Vice President Delcy Rodriguez denounced the recognition of opposition figure Juan Guaidó
...Venezuelan politician, a member of the social-democratic Popular Will party, and serves as a federal deputy to the National Assembly representing the state of Vargas. In 2019 he was appointed by the Popular Will party to become the president of the National Assembly, after which he declared he was acting president of the country, challenging Nicolás Maduro's presidency and starting the 2019 Venezuelan presidential crisis....
by Washington and its allies as the "worst mistake in the diplomatic history of these countries."

Addressing the United Nations
...a lucrative dumping ground for the relatives of dictators and party hacks...
General Assembly, Rodriguez condemned Washington for punishing millions of people across the world by imposing sanctions on them.

"The [US] Treasury Department, the economic Pentagon, is militarizing international relations and punishing millions of people," she said.

Rodriguez explained that sanctions "focused on strangling the Venezuelan economy" had cost the oil-rich country $130 billion between 2015 and 2018.

She told the assembly that she came on "behalf of the only Venezuela," referring to a delegation sent by Guaido to the annual gathering of world leaders.

Rodriguez called Guaido an "artifice" of the United States.

The United States has imposed several rounds of sanctions against Venezuela in order to oust President Nicolás Maduro
...Commie el presidente para la vida of Venezuela, successor to Hugo Chavez. Nick is his country's attempt at producing a Muammar Qadaffy, except that even though his country's sitting on an enormous puddle of oil, he can't manage to get it out of the ground...
and have him replaced with Guaido, who declared himself "interim president" earlier this year.

Intense Hong Kong clashes Sunday ahead of China's 70th anniversary
[Yahoo] Fierce clashes broke out between protesters and riot police in Hong Kong Sunday as thousands marched through the strife-torn city, during a day of global protests aimed at casting a shadow over communist China's upcoming 70th birthday.

Beijing is preparing for huge, tightly-choreographed festivities from Tuesday to mark the founding of the People's Republic of China, including a massive military parade that will revel in the country's emergence as a global superpower.

But ongoing unrest in Hong Kong threatens to upstage those celebrations as the semi-autonomous city boils with public anger over the erosion of its special freedoms under Beijing's rule.

Tear gas, water cannon fired at Hong Kong demo
[PRESSTV] Hong Kong police fired tear gas and water cannon to disperse anti-government protesters who threw rocks, broke windows and blocked a key road near the local headquarters of China's People's Liberation Army (PLA).

A series of protests in the Chinese-ruled city for and against Communist Party rulers in Beijing is planned ahead of the 70th anniversary of the People's Republic on Tuesday, October 1, including at the consulate of former colonial power Britannia.

The protesters, many dressed all in black and wearing masks, took cover under umbrellas from the water cannon and fled after the demonstrations had taken a familiar turn into festivities with police as they have done regularly over more than three months.

Police fired blue water, used in other countries to help identify offenders, as protesters regrouped 100 yards (metres) away.

They had smashed windows of government offices and tried to break in, shouting obscenities and daubing slogans on shop-fronts. They had also shone lasers at a helicopter hovering overhead.

French police break up yellow vest protest with tear gas
[AlAhram] French police repeatedly used tear gas and water cannons to break up a protest Saturday by nearly a 1,000 yellow vest demonstrators in the southern city of Toulouse
...lies on the banks of the River Garonne, half-way between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. The Toulouse metropolitan area is the fourth-largest in La Belle France...
At least one arrest was made during the march, which started in the afternoon. It was led by demonstrators brandishing a giant banner which said "Fed up of surviving. We want to live."

They also burnt a parasol in front of a McDonalds outlet. In the capital Gay Paree, some yellow vests joined a climate protest march.

The weekly protest came two days after the French government unveiled a draft 2020 budget with more than nine billion euros in tax cuts for households.

It includes five billion euros in tax cuts for some 12 million households already promised by President Emmanuel Macron, the result of a "great national debate
... an expenditure of personal wind at the national level that leads to face-making and other histrionics but can't be shown to have ever solved an issue ...
" he held to try to address the ongoing protests.

Macron, who swept to the presidency in 2017 with a pledge to get the country back on a solid financial footing, was caught short by the "yellow vest" movement which accused the former investment banker of ignoring the day-to-day struggles of many French.

Demonstrations have been banned on the Champs-Elysees after protesters clashed with police on the famous Gay Paree avenue on December 8 last year, in the early days of the yellow vest protests.

On that weekend, police detained 900 people: the most since the anti-government protests began.

Musk rolls out Starship in Boca Chica TX

Photos and discussion are at the title link. Sometime later YouTube will have the livestream converted to a video.

The beginning was a bit delayed by a very negative NASA administrator tweet followed by putting a NASA livestream discussion about their upcoming mission to the moon during the same time period that Musk had his speech scheduled.

One of NASA's complaints was not spending enough effort on commercial crew. Musk said %65 of SpaceX current spending was on Commercial Crew vs %5 on Starship.

As to Starship. MK-1 Boca, MK2- Kennedy followed quickly by MK-3 Boca and MK-4 Kennedy. The Starships were a bit heavy so the the current ones can't do SSTO on earth. MK-1 is 200 metric tons empty. He hopes by 4 or 5 to get to 120 metric tons empty. After MK-4 production will begin in both Boca Chica and Kennedy on the Starship Heavy boosters. He thinks this will be in about 6 months. Possibly orbital before 1 year with booster launch. Booster will do 22-35 engines depending on need.

Short term plan is to quickly evolve and rapidly produce Starships and boosters,

Black hole rips apart doomed star in 'rare' event
[PRESSTV] Scientists have captured a view of a colossal black hole violently ripping apart a doomed star, illustrating an extraordinary and chaotic cosmic event from beginning to end for the first time using NASA's planet-hunting telescope.

The US space agency's orbiting Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, better known as TESS, revealed the detailed timeline of a star 375 million light-years away warping and spiraling into the unrelenting gravitational pull of a supermassive black hole, researchers said.

The star, roughly the same size as our sun, was eventually sucked into oblivion in a rare cosmic occurrence that astronomers call a tidal disruption event, they added.

Speaking to Rooters, NASA scientist Knicole Colon said the event involving a black hole violently ripping apart a doomed start was "rare." Astronomers used an international network of telescopes to detect the phenomenon before turning to TESS, whose permanent viewing zones designed to hunt distant planets caught the beginning of the violent event, proving effective its unique method of surveying the cosmos.

Such phenomena happen when a star ventures too close to a supermassive black hole, objects that reside at the center of most large galaxies, including our Milky Way. The black hole's tremendous gravitational forces tear the star to shreds, with some of its material tossed into space and the rest plunging into the black hole, forming a disk of hot, bright gas as it is swallowed.

Observing the oscillation of light as the black hole gobbles the star and spews stellar material in an outward spiral could help astronomers understand the black hole's behavior, a scientific mystery since physicist Albert Einstein's work more than a century ago examined gravity's influence on light in motion.
