Point Made – Time to Move Forward

I believe I have made my point. Let’s all move forward and talk about the future. Great things are possible with so much support coming in these past few days. Honestly I was ready to walk away from all of this. And then you all blasted me unexpectedly with mass support. I thank you and you have no idea what that means to me. The support is also coming in from radio station owners and operators around the nation and in Canada! I have been asked to put together a full 3 – 4 hour program which would go directly...

Goodbye – For Now – DMN Will Be Back!

  I’m sorry to say that Dark Matter News is on temporary hiatus. The program will return in radio syndication very soon. If you’re looking for someone to blame – it’s Keith Rowland. Three months of his hatefulness is all I could stand. So please pardon the interruption – we’ll be back on many more radio stations in better time slots soon. Tonight’s program is a rerun as was last night’s. This will be the final MITD Dark Matter News broadcast. I have made it clear to Art that I would gladly return – but its a Rowland or me...

Russian Airstrikes Kill US-Supported Syrian Rebels

Russian Airstrikes Kill US-Supported Syrian Rebels Russia continues its second day of ground offensive strikes against the terrorist organization ISIS, as news now emerges that jets have bombed US-supported Syrian rebels as well as other civilians. The areas targeted by Russian air-strikes were known to be rebel positions including some rural parts northwest of the town of Jisr al-Shughhour. While Russian officials claim ignorance to the bombing which killed Free Syrian Army leader Captain Iyad al-Deek, critics point out that the alleged targets in this two-day strike have not yet included any known ISIL camps. U.S. Senator John McCain told CNN: “Their initial...

Fukushima Exclusion Zone Photos- 4 Years Later

Fukushima Exclusion Zone Photos- 4 Years Later On Friday, 11 March 2011, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and subsequent major tsunami struck Japan with devastating force. Along with the damage from strong seismic action, flooding, and winds, the inadequately prepared Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant complex suffered multiple meltdowns in the following days.

‘Mad Scientist’ Injects Himself with 3.5M Year-Old Bacteria

‘Mad Scientist’ Injects Himself with 3.5M Year-Old Bacteria (Moscow) A scientist in Russia has reportedly injected himself with an ancient bacteria in hopes to find the key to ‘prolonged human life.’ In 2009, Anatoli Brouchkov, head of the department for Geocryology at Moscow State University discovered a 3.5 million year-old bacterial organism still living within layers of permafront at a site known as Mammoth Mounter located in Siberia. Brouchkov went against protocol, in what many researchers would deem ‘irresponsible’ at best, and what any fan of The X-Files might find ‘cringeworthy’. Puzzled by the organism’s longevity,  curiosity got the best of him so Brouchkov decided to go...

GTA V Players Spot Virtual UFO Invasion in Los Santos

GTA V Players Spot UFO Invasion in Los Santos We survived a plethora of apocalyptic predictions this September, however a different sort-of threat now looms over the virtual city of Los Santos in the popular video game Grand Theft Auto V. This time, the supposed threat does not come from fears of a ‘blood moon‘, an asteroid, or even CERN. Instead, a ‘portal’ was opened by game modder LelaoNN, allowing UFOs to strike terror into the hearts of the virtual citizens of Los Santos—as if they haven’t been through enough already. The game mod, dubbed UFO Invasion 1.0, was uploaded Sunday and already...

@Snowden Joins Twitter.

@Snowden Joins Twitter. Prompted by a suggestion from a recent interview with celebrity astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, Edward Snowden has hit the popular social media outlet with record impact. His ‘confirmed’ account, @Snowden, gained over 300,000 followers in just under two hours (sitting at just over 813,000 followers as of the time of this article).

East Coast Braces for Flooding as Tropical Storm Brews in Atlantic

Though the storm is expected to weaken over the weekend, eastern-coastal areas of the United States from North Carolina to New England are bracing for a potential impact. Some models...
