Star Trek’s Lt. Uhura’s Brother’s Heaven’s Gate Final Exit Statement

Posted in Deaths, Weird with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 24, 2010 by Ro


Did you know that Nichelle Nichols, the actress who played Lieutenant Uhura in the original “Star Trek” television series, had a brother Thomas Nichols  who was a member of the Heaven’s Gate cult? If you recall, the Heaven’s Gate Cult were the UFO fanatics based in San Diego county who ate together at Marie Calendars restaurant prior to returning home to commit mass suicide on March 26, 1997.

Dessert was served at home in bed, and consisted of phenobarbital mixed with applesauce or pudding which was then washed down with vodka.  Additionally, plastic bags were placed over their heads induce asphyxiation. They were dead lying  their own bunk beds covered from head to toe with a purple cloth. Each member carried a five dollar bill and three quarters in their pockets.

No word on whether or not Thomas was one of the 7 males who underwent voluntarily underwent castration in Mexico in order to commit to an ascetic lifestyle, but I’m going to go on record and say he was one of the 7 because it makes the story better.

Why am I writing about this now? Because I finally found his “Heaven’s Gate Student Final Exit Statement”, which was videotaped right before his death. I’ve been looking for it for years and finally found it by searching under his cult name DSTODY.  And here it is:

Now how can we convince Scientologists to do the same?

Palin Tricked By Comedian Again, Says Canada Should Drop Public Health Care (VIDEO)

HuffPo:At a recent stop on her “Going Rogue” book tour, Sarah Palin told Canadian comedian Mary Walsh that Canada should get rid of its public health care system.

Walsh is the co-creator and star of This Hour Has 22 Minutes — a nightly news parody show in the same vein as The Daily Show — and she arrived in character, as the conservative Marg Delahunty, to the Borders where Palin (the “Alaskan Aphrodite”) was signing books.

“I just wanted to ask you if you have any words of encouragement for Canadian conservatives who have worked so hard to try to diminish the kind of socialized medicine we have up there.” Walsh shouted to Palin as she approached the table.

Palin’s handlers tried to help her by ushering Walsh out of the Borders, but Palin could not be deterred. When Palin left the signing, Walsh caught up with her in the parking lot, where Palin suggested that Canada should get rid of its public health care system. “Keep the faith” Palin said, “because common sense conservatism can be plugged in there in Canada too. In fact, Canada needs to reform its health care system and let the private sector take over some of what the government has absorbed.”

Raw Story points out that it is unlikely this plan will go over well among Canadians — even among conservatives.

A recent study found that 90 percent of Canadians support universal, single-payer health care. A poll taken last summer shows 82 percent of Canadians believe their health care system to be better than the US’s, despite constant grumbling about waiting times for treatment of non-life-threatening conditions.

This is Palin’s second brush with Canadian comedians. Last November a comedian from Montreal convinced the former governor she was speaking with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Glenn Beck claims health care bill includes insurance for dogs

Advice-Dog-GLENN-BECK-SERIOUSLY

“Do you know in the health care bill, we’re now offering insurance for dogs,” Beck said. “Do I need to say any more? If you are somebody who is like, ‘Well, I just, I’m struggling and we’re barely making ends meet,’ I’m not paying for your dog cardiologist!” Beck said. “Not gonna do it. I’m sorry, the dog goes nighty night.”

Politifact:
Included in the House bill is the creation of a Public Health Workforce Corps to address shortages in the public health workforce. The program would provide scholarships and education loan repayment assistance for public health professionals serving in areas of need. Veterinarians are included among those public health professionals.

“The rationale is that with mad cow disease, swine flu and other animal-borne diseases and issues, there is logic in helping to create more and better trained individuals to treat animal health,” said Vincent Morris, spokesman for the House Rules Committee

I guess Glenn Beck likes swine flu, mad cow, Avian Flu etc.

The thing is, while it is a masterful spin for such a slow adult, does it work? People love their dogs, sometimes more then their family members. Vet bills aren’t exactly cheap either. I asked my dog, Foxy, if she felt she deserved this “socialized medicine.” She simply stated “Single Payer or Bust!” and took a little poop on my nicest rug. She really hates Glenn Beck.

Westboro Baptist Church, the “God Hates Fags” troupe, famous for protesting at military funerals and claiming that God is punishing the country for its tolerance of homosexuality, was spotted this morning protesting outside Sidwell Friends, the school attended by Sasha and Malia Obama.

Protesters were carrying signs with anti-gay, anti-abortion and anti-Obama slogans, slowing down traffic all along Wisconsin Avenue this morning.

One member, Megan Phelps-Roper, posted a picture on Twitter of the protest.

Did Glenn Beck Rape And Murder A Young Girl In 1990?

Any political junkie has heard the old tale of LBJ’s dirty campaign tricks.

During LBJ’s first congressional race, when he supposedly told his campaign manager to begin circulating the rumor that his main opponent, a pig farmer, was practicing animal husbandry a bit too literally. “Jesus, Lyndon,” the campaign manager was said to have responded. “Nobody’s going to believe that.” “Yeah,” quoth LBJ, “but I want to hear the son of a bitch deny it.”

Well now I’d like to turn your attention to another person who practices such vile techniques. Glenn Beck. Glenn claims to be a Libertarian, and his 1 hour show on Fox News makes Alex Jones look sane. He makes some of the most unbelievable, outlandish, disgusting claims about his political enemies. Yet he manages never to be called out for it, much less sued for it because he hides behind one punctuation mark. The question mark.

If you have ever watched his show, you will hear him use this techineque with surgeon like precision. “I am not saying Obama is a Marxist, I am just asking the question, is Obama a Marxist?” “I’m not saying there are microchips in the swine flu vaccine, but I must ask, is there microchips in the vaccine?” Glenn floats these questions through satellites, directly into the brains of the mouth breathers that watch his show, and gets paid millions doing so.

But now the tables have turned, and the man who “asks the questions others are afraid to ask,” is being asked a question he is afraid to answer.

Did Glenn Beck Rape And Murder A Young Girl In 1990?

Sure the idea that a man with such boyish good looks would have to force himself on any woman is hard to swallow. He is also a very sensitive man, as he cries at the drop of a hat, so I would think murdering a young girl would be too much for him. Well the truth is, most likely, he did not rape or murder anything other than his knowledge of American history. It was simply an internet meme, that started on FARK.com, to satirize the way he fashions his bogus arguments as questions, to protect himself from litigation. The meme itself was based on a Gilbert Godried joke during the Roast of Bob Sagat.

So imagine our suprise when Glenn got his magic Morman panties in a twist when a young man who goes by “Name Withheld” started a site called http://didglennbeckrapeandmurderayounggirlin1990.com/

On the site, he made it clear that it was a parody site. As I stated before it was just a play on the way Beck makes allegations, then ends them with a question mark to cover his ass. Well Glenn Beck felt it was actioanble. He actually sued the domain name owner. Why you ask? Was it because he thought it was slander, or libel? NO! He sued on the grounds that people might feel that the site was run and owned by Glenn Beck himself. He filed a WIPO complaint, claiming that “Name Withheld” was violating Glenn Becks trademark! Apparently Beck not only lacks journalistic integrity, he also lacks common fucking sense.

Of course “Name Withheld” won the complaint. In addition the suit brought more national, and international attention to the site, and Glenn Beck’s alleged actions in 1990.

In conclusion, I would personally like to say that I in NO way believe that Glenn Beck Raped and Murdered a Girl in 1990.

I just want to hear the son of a bitch deny it!

Bullet hits Lou Dobbs’ NJ home with wife nearby

AP: WANTAGE, N.J. – Police in New Jersey are trying to determine who fired a bullet that struck CNN commentator Lou Dobbs’ home as his wife stood nearby. State police Sgt. Stephen Jones says Dobbs’ wife and driver were outside the home Oct. 5 when they heard the gunshot. Jones says the bullet didn’t penetrate the siding and fell to the ground outside.

Dobbs mentioned the bullet earlier this week on CNN and his radio show.

Dobbs says he had been receiving threatening phone calls for weeks. On his radio show, he connected the gunshot to his advocacy for a crackdown on illegal immigration and to his opponents’ rhetoric.

The home is on a farm in Wantage, about 50 miles northwest of New York City.

It is small-game hunting season, but no hunters were seen in the area.

I have a feeling he will blame it on illegal immigrants.
