A hacktivist group claiming to be Anonymous is now calling for nationwide Day of Rage protests on Friday, July 15th.

While Anonymous claims no organization and the call for protests seem to mirror a false rage protests event in 2014, under the current climate, it should be something to watch for in your city.

The Department of Defense issued a stern warning to its personnel to steer clear of Friday’s Day of Rage Protests demonstration outside the White House protesting the recent spate of fatal police shootings across the country.

The five-minute-plus Day of Rage Protests video produced by TheAnonMessage shows footage of the fatal police shootings of Alton Sterling in Louisiana and Philando Castile in Minnesota, and the slayings of five officers in Dallas, Texas.

Day of Rage Protests Scheduled for Friday: Is your city on the deadly list?

60,000 People Joined Together To Attempt To Re-Direct Hurricane Irma Using Fans

Published

on

Category 5 Hurricane Irma is currently making its way across a string of Caribbean islands toward the US mainland. Depending on what the storm does over the next 2 days, there is still a chance it could miss the US mainland altogether and travel North-East back out to sea.

Several people decided to start an online campaign to help encourage the storm to take that more easterly path using a rather ridiculous method – electric fans…a lot of them.

Earlier this week Joshua Stanaland created a Facebook event titled “Everybody Points Their Fans At The Hurricane To Blow It Away“, which has since gone viral – dozens of news stations have already covered the idea and there are now over 60,000 people committed to pointing their fans at the storm.

60,000 People Joined Together To Attempt To Re-Direct Hurricane Irma Using Fans

The Facebook event includes the following instructions:

“Everyone takes their fans outside and points them at Hurricane Irma to blow it away from us. Air compressors with a blow gun attachment also a plus, or anything else. Get creative. Date/time subject to change due to the unpredictable path it may take.

*Not responsible for any collapsed lungs should you choose to blow manually.”

The event is scheduled to run from September 7th through September 13th.

Pictures and videos of people pointing fans at the storm have been flooding social media all day;

Doing my part! #unitedwefan #irma #hurricaneirma

Barbara Simo Manzano even said she is getting the University of Miami involved by using their high-velocity industrial fans;

“We have the Wall of Wind (WoW) in the Engineering Center at the University where I work in Miami. This should do it. #wow #FIU #hurricaneresearch”

Meteorologists are doubtful the fans will have any effect on the storm, even with 58,000 people participating. Hurricane Irma has sustained wind speed speeds of 150mph, and it’s the size of Texas.

In all seriousness, if you are in the projected path of Hurricane Irma, please make sure you are prepared to either seek shelter or evacuate.

Vanity Fair Dumps Melania To Fully Honor Michelle Obama On ‘Best Dressed’ List

Published

on

The saga continues…. the left having no care for the truth, and fully backing lies. In this case though, we’re talking about fashion. Both Former First Lady Michelle Obama and former President Obama are going to be honored on a best dressed list. Vanity Fair’s best dressed list that is, and they are very notably all over that list..as individuals and best dressed couple.

Oddly but I guess not too surprisingly enough, Melania Trump, our standing First Lady is in fact NOT on the list…not even as a honorable mention. The piece written up on Michelle and Barack Obama in this issue of Vanity Fair boasts about one of Michelle’s “most notable” looks of the year (according to them), and you won’t believe which look they picked…

Now you know they’re lying.

Here it is…

Also on their list was French First Lady, Brigitte Macron. Which is also curious, as Melania Trump very obviously upstaged her on her trip to Paris, where she arrived wearing an alluring red Dior skirt-suit. This was to honor the French fashion house on their anniversary, as reported by Breitbart News.

Melania remains one of the most fashion-forward American First Ladies in history, while having only lived in the White House for a just a few months. The Eastern European former model often opts for the most luxurious of fashion ensembles, pairing custom-made Hervé Pierre frocks with Manolo Blahnik stilettos.

Melania’s most famous high-fashion look as First Lady thus far was, arguably, when she stepped out in a $51,000 Dolce & Gabbana blossoming floral coat and matching clutch, as Breitbart News reported.

What is Vanity Fair thinking? It certainly isn’t about fashion…

Right?

What are some of your worst and best fashion looks for Michelle and Melania? Who would you pick for the best dressed list of 2017?
