The Mind of a School Shooter--Not All Are Crazy,Most Are Just Angry

From Topher Payne's "Above the Fold": The introduction to the story of a high school shooting in Pearl, Mississippi. Featuring Greg Morris as Luke Woodham.


Pearl High School Shooting

The incident began on the morning of October 1, 1997 when Luke Woodham fatally stabbed and bludgeoned his mother, Mary Woodham, as she prepared for a morning jog. At his trial, Woodham claimed that he could not remember killing his mother.

Woodham drove his mother's car to Pearl High School. Wearing an orange jumpsuit and a trenchcoat,[1] he made no attempt to hide his rifle. When he entered the school, he fatally shot Lydia Kaye Dew and Christina Menefee, his former girlfriend. Pearl High School assistant band director, Jeff Cannon, was standing five feet away from Dew when she was fatally shot. Woodham went on to wound seven others before leaving, intending to drive off campus and conduct another shooting at the nearby Pearl Junior High School. However, assistant principal Joel Myrick had retrieved a .45 pistol from the glove compartment of his truck and subdued Woodham inside his mother's car. Then Myrick demanded
"Why did you shoot my kids?" to which Woodham replied, "Life has wronged me, sir."[2]

Minutes before he started the shooting, he gave the following message to a friend[3]:
“ I am not insane, I am angry. I killed because people like me are mistreated every day. I did this to show society, push us and we will push back. ... All throughout my life, I was ridiculed, always beaten, always hated. Can you, society, truly blame me for what I do? Yes, you will. ... It was not a cry for attention, it was not a cry for help. It was a scream in sheer agony saying that if you can't pry your eyes open, if I can't do it through pacifism, if I can't show you through the displaying of intelligence, then I will do it with a bullet. ”

littlebytesnews's insight:

While Adam Lanza was angry, he was also mentally ill from the news reports I have heard recently. A man claiming to be his uncle said Lanza was taking an anti-psychotic called Fanapt, which is prescribed for schizophrenia. It hasn't been confirmed if this is true or not, but no medications were found in the house where Lanza resided with his mother. Court records are currently sealed so until they are subpoened by law enforcement we will not know for sure whether his mom was filing to have him committed, as a family friend reported to Fox News recently, which may have set Lanza off. It is believed he felt abandoned by the fact his mother was going to give up on him and have him committed for a psychiatric evaluation and treatment, and that she had volunteered at Sandy Hook last year with the First Grade students he shot and killed.


It's obvious he planned out his shooting spree, like Woodham, Loughner, Holmes and most other mass shooters. They all were well armed and prepared to take gun fire from law enforcement. However, all were cowards who targeted helpless students and teachers and people in "Gun Free Zones". The majority of mass shootings have been in these "Gun Free Zones'', which indicates laws banning guns doesn't work when someone is determined to commit a crime they are already breaking the law by their intent to do harm and premeditating the crime, then acting it out. Adam Lanza tried to purchase weapons, but was turned down when he refused a background check and didn't want to wait for the waiting period. Those laws are already in place, and can be a deterrent, but as this case proves someone who is determined to harm others will take desperate measures and steal the weapons needed if they need to. That's just what Adam Lanza did.


Unfortunately his mother taught him to use guns and kept them in the house while living with a child she knew was mentally unstable and immature. She is said to have told friends she didn't like to leave him alone, one friend said he was told not to turn his back on Adam for a second because she feared what he would do. It's not known if she thought he would harm others or himself, but it definitely sounds like she knew he was unstable and could harm himself and is reported to have set himself on fire and claimed he felt no pain. He was a reserved, recluse, who avoided social interaction with others throughout high school years and was known to have outbursts and temper tantrums, but was considered intelligent, with a high functioning form of autism, aspergers. His mother later pulled him out of school because his needs were unmanageable and she apparently thought her love, time and devotion were enough to keep him on track. Apparently she was wrong. Her desperation to bond with her emotional son, who lacked affection towards her, led her to teach him target shooting as a way for her to bond with her youngest son. Sadly, little did she know she was training him to take her life, his own and others.


While there are no reports Lanza was bullied or teased growing up, Luke Woodham said he was bullied, beaten, teased and hated while growing up. He was angry and wanted vengeance for the way he had been treated, so he planned to kill his ex girfriend,a friend and three others before he was stopped by his principal who was armed. The thing that was common between Woodham and Lanza is they both had a sense of anger towards those who they felt wronged them.


The killings at Sandy Hook appeared to have a personal rage, while he didn't know the children and teachers personally, he knew that his mother knew them and worked with them as a volunteer last year and he felt her time spent with them took from her time with him and her love for him. At least, according to recent reports, and once he found out his mom was going to have him committed and sent away, the only person who was always there for him was turning on least in his mind he thought she betrayed him.


His mom had done all she could for so many years, but it was getting to the point there was nothing else she could do as she felt she was 'losing him'. Sadly, the anger and rage he felt caused him to act irrationally and led him to take that rage out on her and the 26 other people she was close to. 


Another common denominator is most of these mass murderers are intelligent and not just mentally disturbed. They are smart enough to know what they are doing and plan out these attacks from the start to finish. They also often end up taking their own lives. However, James Holmes and Jared Loughner did not take their lives and based on what we know about them they both likely suffered from schizophrenia, which could have been a likely factor in the case of Adam Lanza. I'm not sure why they didn't take their lives, but Adam Lanza did and now we may never really know the exact reason he did what he did, but based on the pieces of his life we know...he was a very troubled and disturbed person that needed much more than the love and attention his mom provided.


Intelligent,Rage,Jealousy and Social Inadequacies all seem to be a common factor in the shooter at Sandy Hook and other mass murderers. Does it mean all angry, jealous, intelligent people who keep to themselves are going to become mass, but it should raise red flags that these people need to be paid attention to, referred for counseling or treatment until they appear able to manage their rage and interact with those around them so that they can function productively in society. If not, then they might have a deeper problem which requires greater evaluation and treatment.

A Call To Action to Restore America & What's Really Destroying America

A Call To Action to Restore America & What's Really Destroying America | Littlebytesnews Current Events |

A Call To Action to Restore America

by P Garza aka @littlebytesnews



Do you support unification of TeaParty orgs,etc to take legal action against the liberal propaganda media, as well as boycotting of their sponsors? If you want to restore America we must act together and unify our groups to stop the liberal propaganda machine from smearing Conservatives and covering for the socialist/communist Obama, liberal agenda!


Do you oppose the moral and cultural decay of our country and the decline of our education system?? Then we must act now and work together to take back the education system, whether by homeschooling, private schooling or getting more involved in the public education system at the local level.


If you are not aware by now, after the re-election of Obama, the direction our country is heading is very dire. I fear by the time Obama is done with his four more years, it will be too late and we will all be equally poor and oppressed. I believe we need to take action before that happens and before 2014 and 2016!


Sadly, like others I have my doubts those who re-elected this moron will not learn from their mistakes, but am hopeful if we fall completely they will wakeup, but fear that by then it will be too late. I think we need to organize against the media and take back the message. I also think we need to take back the message in schools where our children are being taught about social justice, anti-capitalism, and distorted versions of history rather than the facts. Those who do not know their history are doomed to repeat it.


My Solutions/Ideas To Change Direction

1) I don't know exactly how we can go after the media other than boycotting sponsors of the liberal propagandists and/or a class action lawsuit by we the people organized by the tea party movement?? They need to be sued for media malpractice and being complicit in keeping the truth from the public, not vetting Obama properly, protecting him from the scandals surrounding his admin from fast&furious to Benghazi, Solyndra/green energy loans,etc. If we are successful in a class action lawsuit, I am hopeful their broadcasting license are revoked and conservative media and new media can take over and get the truth to the American people and the world.


2)To change/reform education we need more conservatives teaching, acting in leadership roles in the system from school boards, to the administration. We have let the liberals take control for far too long and they now not only control the education system and curriculum but our Universities where many vulnerable young minds are being taught to accept the liberal ideology, social justice, anti-capitalism, etc. Many are also taught antisemitism and this is another reason so many young support Gaza/Hamas rather than our ally Israel. They are not getting the truth and they are not learning from history and about true history, but a revised version of history distorted by the liberal/progressive/Marxists running our schools/universities.


I believe the distortions of the liberal media, voter fraud, [] illegal voters through Obama's backdoor amnesty/DREAM Act& foreign donations, as well as lack of photo ID laws allowed Obama to win re-election. Not to mention the brainwashed/misinformed voters who have been taught otherwise in our schools/universities. I know everyone can't home-school so homeschooling as an alternative can not be the only option.


We must take back our education system and not only improve the system, but control the message.

All of these things need to change before Conservative principles and the intentions of our founders will be fulfilled again. We have slowly been moving away from those traditional values&morals thanks to the corrupt/biased media and education system. Until we take those back we may never be able to win this fight without total destruction, but by then it might be too late to ever recover. I hope we can somehow do something now and before 2014 to change the message and take back control of the media and education system. Otherwise, we will be doomed to tyranny, the status of a third world country,militarily&economically, and the American Dream will be no more.


If you have other ideas and a way to organize with the tea party movement to pursue a class action lawsuit against the corrupt media or change our school system or otherwise, please share and contact me. Hopefully we can all work together to start a citizens action group that can take back our country without violence or the need for another civil war or declaration of independence.


Thanks for posting this and helping to raise others awareness of what is destroying our country.


Read about what inspired this post and the dire direction our country is heading:

".....Corporations do not exist to provide work, benefits and pensions for employees. The private sector is about the creation of wealth, not the creation of jobs. One begets the other, but without the former the latter simply cannot exist."

littlebytesnews's insight:

Update: What America needs — if it is to survive in liberty — is a surge in citizen activism unlike anything our nation has ever before seen.

The success of such a grassroots movement will depend on how much individual citizens are willing to do their part to return our country to divinely-inspired principles of self-governance — those principles contained in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, and those validated by common sense and biblical teachings.

If you feel you need to "wait for instructions," or otherwise depend on others — especially those in positions of leadership — to guide and assist you, our country will not survive these perilous times. You must act as though the future of our countrydepends on you alone, for in a very real sense it does. It depends on the creative, responsible, exemplary initiative of yourself and those you inspire to similar patriotism.

Here are suggestions for helping to make a difference in the future of our country.

Submit frequent letters to editors.

Testify at public hearings.

Hold regular gatherings in your home or community to discuss and promote the cause of liberty.

Volunteer to work in a political campaign, at any level, for any worthy purpose.

Widely distribute signs for a cause or a candidate.

Lead — or get involved in — a worthy petition drive.

Organize a rally, large or small, to publicize an urgent issue or cause.

Contact your local paper and offer to be interviewed regarding a public question or concern you have vital knowledge of.

Pick up the phone and share your views on talk radio — or if you have the skills and opportunity, create your own radio or internet talk show.

Create a blog.

Found a website.

Write and publish a regular column — or even a book.

Get actively involved in a major (or possibly a "third") political party in your state or the nation.

Run for local — or higher — public office.

Sign the Pledge for America's Revival — and invite others to do the same.

Participate in RenewAmerica’s Facebook page (and also America’s Revival’s Facebook page) — and support similar interactive forums on the web.

Help organize your state or local area in the cause of taking back our country.

Inform yourself. "Zeal without knowledge" (see Rom. 10:2-3) will not save our country. Become acquainted with reliable, principled websites, blogs, publications, books, speakers, organizations, and other praiseworthy sources for information regarding the needs of our country and the solutions to those needs. Sign up to receive helpful newsletters and alerts.

A good place to start informing yourself would be to study essential documentsthat describe our nation's founding principles.

Work on your "people skills." By this, we mean your ability to strengthen and influence others for good — so they might be persuaded to take independent action — not your ability to "use" others for your own ends, as some might think. Respect the worth, dignity, and free will of each individual as you seek to assist them in fulfilling their duty as citizens.

Work on your communicative skills. "Politics is communication," to a large extent. Become the kind of communicator God can use for His purposes. Meaningful communication requires practice, experience, wisdom, and the operation of God's Spirit in effectively informing real people in real situations. This applies equally to both spoken and written communication.

Turn your skills and resources mainly to saving our country — above any other purpose beyond your own salvation and the well-being of your family — and rely on God to give you the practical means to do so.

BREAKING: KS Jewish Center Shooter ID’d: “WHITE NATIONALIST LEADER” Fraiser Glenn Cross, Jr. from Aurora, Missouri

BREAKING: KS Jewish Center Shooter ID’d: “WHITE NATIONALIST LEADER” Fraiser Glenn Cross, Jr. from Aurora, Missouri | Littlebytesnews Current Events |
Frazier Glenn Miller, Jr., from Aurora, Missouri, founded and built the only White people’s party ever in the U.S. – the White Patriot Party – between 1980 to 1986, with a peak membership of around 5000. On Sunday Glenn Miller…


On Sunday Glenn Miller shot three people dead outside two Jewish Centers in Overland Park, Kansas.

There was a shooting today outside the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas and then at the Village Shalom in Leawood.
Two of the victims were in a car – one was killed.
A grandfather and grandson were killed in the shooting.
The shooter was in his 70s.

Tonight the shooter was identified as Fraizier Glenn Miller, or Glenn Miller. He is the former leader of the defunct North Carolina-based White Patriot Party (formerly known as the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan). Convicted of criminal charges related to weapons and violation of an injunction against paramilitary activity, he is a perennial candidate for public office as both a Democrat and Republican.

Glenn Miller tried to run for Congress in 2006 but all the parties he tried to file with refused to accept his check (In Missouri, the receipt of the filing fee check is required to file).

Here was Frasier Glenn Miller today after his arrest.

littlebytesnews's insight:

I'm sure since he was white and founded a party called the "White Patriot Party' libs will call him a conservative rightwing extremist.....even though he was a KKK supporter/anti-semite, who spoke at a liberal university in the 2012...whatever he was I doubt Obama and liberals will call it a hate crime despite video of him saying Heil Hitler after his arrest.

Pretty Girl Seeks Rich Husband...The Reply She Got Was Priceless!

Pretty Girl Seeks Rich Husband...The Reply She Got Was Priceless! | Littlebytesnews Current Events |

The following is what a women posted on a dating forum seeking a rich husband:

I’m going to be honest of what I’m going to say here. I’m 25 this year. I’m very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above. You might say that I’m greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York.

My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married? I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you?

Among those I’ve dated, the richest is $250k annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit.
If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York City Garden(?), $250k annual income is not enough.

I’m here humbly to ask a few questions:

1) Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)
2) Which age group should I target?
3) Why most wives of the riches are only average-looking? I’ve met a few girls who don’t have looks and are not interesting, but they are able to marry rich guys.
4) How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)
Ms. Pretty

A philosophical reply from CEO of J.P. Morgan below:

Dear Ms. Pretty,
I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyse your situation as a professional investor.
My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I’m not wasting time here.
From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain.

Put the details aside, what you’re trying to do is an exchange of “beauty” and “money” : Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square.
However, there’s a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can’t be prettier year after year.

Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It’s not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worse 10 years later.

Missing Plane Mystery: Pilot's Simulator 'Key'

Missing Plane Mystery: Pilot's Simulator 'Key' | Littlebytesnews Current Events |
Zaharie Ahmad Shah's "awesome" virtual cockpit allowed him to mimic all manner of flight scenarios and recreate a jet's movement.


The pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane invested vast amounts of time and money in an ultra-realistic flight simulator that is being pored over by investigators trying to solve the mystery of the jet’s disappearance.

Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah spent thousands of hours in the virtual cockpit of the machine playing flying games and boosting its capabilities.

The state-of-the-art setup is a key part of the investigation into flight MH370, which has been missing for more than two weeks.

Pilot had call from mystery woman who used fake ID&untraceable SIM card linked to terror

Pilot had call from mystery woman who used fake ID&untraceable SIM card linked to terror | Littlebytesnews Current Events |
The two minute call was made just hours before MH370 took off and increases fears Captain Shah may have links to terrorism

Call was made to Captain Shah just hours before he took off in MH370Pay-as-you-go phone which made the call was bought with fake IDFake ID was used to get around security measures put in place after 9/11Increases fears Captain Shah may have links to terrorismInvestigators will soon question the captain's estranged wife in detail


The captain of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 received a two-minute call shortly before take-off from a mystery woman using a mobile phone number obtained under a false identity.

It was one of the last calls made to or from the mobile of Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah in the hours before his Boeing 777 left Kuala Lumpur 16 days ago.

Investigators are treating it as potentially significant because anyone buying a pay-as-you-go SIM card in Malaysia has to fill out a form giving their identity card or passport number.



Introduced as an anti-terrorism measure following 9/11, this ensures that every number is registered to a traceable person.

But in this case police traced the number to a shop selling SIM cards in Kuala Lumpur. They found that it had been bought ‘very recently’ by someone who gave a woman’s name – but was using a false identity.

The discovery raises fears of a possible link between Captain Zaharie, 53, and terror groups whose members routinely use untraceable SIM cards. Everyone else who spoke to the pilot on his phone in the hours before the flight took off has already been interviewed.

In a separate development, The Mail on Sunday has learned that investigators are now poised to question Captain Shah’s estranged wife in detail.

They have waited two weeks out of respect, but will now begin formally interviewing Faizah Khan following pressure from FBI agents assisting the inquiry.

Although the couple – who have three children – were separated, they had been living under the same roof. A source said: ‘Faizah has  been spoken to gently by officers but she has not been questioned in detail to establish her husband’s behaviour and state of mind in the days leading to the incident. 

The latest release of a war-themed computer game – centred on a passenger plane that crashes on to a desert island in the South China Sea – has been delayed as the search for missing flight MH370 continues. Battlefield 4 Naval Strike, an update for the Battlefield 4 game which has sold millions of copies worldwide, was due for release last week – but has now been put back until Tuesday.


‘This is partly for cultural reasons. It is not considered appropriate in Malaysia to subject people in situations of terrible bereavement to the stress of intensive questioning.’

The softly-softly approach has been challenged by the team of FBI agents working with Malaysian police. They have pointed out that she may hold ‘vital clues and information’ to Zaharie’s mental state.

‘The whole world is looking for this missing plane and the person who arguably knows most about the state of mind of the man who captained the plane is being left alone,’ said a source close to the FBI team. 

The source added: ‘If we want to eliminate the chief pilot from the inquiry, we must interview her in detail to find out what his state of mind was.’

The mystery caller emerged when Malaysian investigators examined the phone records of both Zaharie and his co-pilot, 27-year-old Fariq Abdul Hamid. Investigators were keen to trace the caller and interview them, although they have stressed that the fact the SIM card was registered to a non-existent ID card does not necessarily indicate a criminal or terrorist connection.

Political activists in Malaysia sometimes use SIM cards bought with bogus identity cards if they fear that their phones may be bugged by the country’s authoritarian ruling party.

The Mail on Sunday revealed last week that Zaharie is an avid supporter of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, a distant relative, and may have attended a controversial court hearing where Anwar was jailed for five years. It took place only a few hours before the flight. The timing of the call has intensified scrutiny on Zaharie as investigators struggle to establish whether the cockpit crew, a catastrophic accident or hijackers are to blame for Flight MH370’s disappearance.

Meanwhile FBI experts in the US are continuing to examine the hard drive of a flight simulator seized from Zaharie’s home after it emerged that programs he used on it had been deleted. Zaharie used the home flight simulator to practise extreme landings, including on remote Indian Ocean islands such as the US air base in Diego Garcia, investigators have revealed.

The hard drive was flown to the FBI laboratory in Quantico, Virginia, at the end of last week after Malaysian investigators failed to retrieve the deleted files, which they suspect may have been ‘buried’ in an elaborate process to cover  the user’s tracks.

The delay in handing the computer hard drive to the FBI has proved  to be a source of friction between the Malaysian and US investigators, the source close to the FBI said, adding: ‘We have the technology to do this work quickly and effectively and they simply don’t.’

Malaysia’s acting transport minister Hishammuddin Hussein yesterday said investigators are coming under increasing pressure as they are aware that time is running out  – the black box voice and data recorder only transmits an electronic signal for about 30 days before its battery runs out.

But he claimed a thorough investigation of the plane’s cargo manifest had not shown ‘any link to anything that may have contribution to the plane’s disappearance’.

Remember the Cuban Missle Crisis? Putin to put Russian bases in Latin America | Littlebytesnews Current Events |

WASHINGTON – As the world remains riveted on Moscow’s annexation of the Crimean Peninsula, Russian President Vladimir Putin is shifting gears to Latin America.

As first outlined by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu last February, Putin now plans to keep the United States off-balance as Moscow sets up actual military bases and massive arms sales in the Latin American region.


Moscow’s plan follows a recent announcement by Iran to have its warships patrol in waters off the U.S. coast.

Russia and Iran have stated their increased presence is also in response to U.S. military deployments near their countries, including the eastward expansion of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization up to Russia’s borders.

US Spies not caught off-guard by Crimea crisis: Lt Gen Flynn

US Spies not caught off-guard by Crimea crisis: Lt Gen Flynn | Littlebytesnews Current Events |

US spy agencies warned the White House of imminent action by Russia in Ukraine and were not caught off guard by the crisis, a top official said Friday, rejecting criticism from lawmakers.

Facing accusations the spy services were taken by surprise, the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, said in an interview the intelligence community predicted the likely intervention of Russian troops up to a week in advance.

"I think for easily seven to 10 days leading up to the Russian troops as we see them now in Crimea, we were providing very solid reporting on what I would describe as just strategic warning," Flynn told National Public Radio.

The warnings gradually escalated to the point where Russian intervention in Crimea was described as "imminent," Flynn said.

A spokesman for the Central Intelligence Agency, Todd Ebitz, also hit back at criticism from Congress, saying the spy agency "has regularly updated policymakers to ensure they have an accurate and timely picture of the unfolding crisis."

"These updates have included warnings of possible scenarios for a Russian military intervention in Ukraine. Any suggestion otherwise is flat wrong," he told AFP.

The spy agencies are sensitive to accusations of botched intelligence, given a mixed track record that includes colossal failures including the run-up to the US invasion of Iraq in 2003.

The CIA was blindsided by the fall of the shah in Iran in 1979, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan the same year and the 9/11 attacks in 2001.

Some lawmakers say the intelligence agencies have failed again.

"It was not predicted by our intelligence, and that's already been well known," Senator John McCain said this week at a hearing.

He called it "another massive failure because of our misreading, total misreading of the intentions" of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Mike Rogers, the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said his panel was examining the performance of the spy agencies.

"We have begun a review to see what pieces were missing here," Rogers said.

The Los Angeles Times, citing unnamed sources, reported that the deputy director of national intelligence, Robert Cardillo, did not suggest military action was imminent when he spoke to lawmakers last week at a closed-door briefing.

Source: Flight 370 Had Military Escort, is Intact and Passengers are Alive

Source: Flight 370 Had Military Escort, is Intact and Passengers are Alive | Littlebytesnews Current Events |

On Monday I reported that a transmission and picture from Philip Wood's cell phone was allegedly sent from Diego Garcia Naval & Intelligence Base and received by an internet forum. The transmission was, in fact, traced back to this area of the Indian Ocean. It clearly could have been some type of forgery but that doesn't mean that it was. My contention then, and now, is that the scenario was unlikely, but possible.

I have to believe that someone knows what happened to that plane. In 2014, our technology is so advanced that it is hard to imagine that a Boeing 777 could simply disappear.


Now Sarah Bajc, partner of Philip Wood, has publicly stated that she believes the flight is still intact and that the passengers are alive. She claims that a source revealed to her that this plane had a military escort and she, like many of us, believes that the whole story is not being told.

littlebytesnews's insight:

I'm still wondering why Diego Garcia didn't pick it up on radar?? I think Malaysia and the US are not telling us everything.... but why??? Did the US shoot it down because it was in US airspace and now they are covering it up to avoid conflict with China since most passengers were Chinese?

Uh oh...Russian Military Begins Massive Nuclear Weapons Drill

Uh oh...Russian Military Begins Massive Nuclear Weapons Drill | Littlebytesnews Current Events |
While much Western attention has been bestowed on Russia’s military buildup near Ukraine, Moscow also began a massive nuclear offensive exercise on Thursday.


According to the Russian daily Nezavisimaya Gazeta, on Thursday Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces began a massive three-day exercise involving 10,000 soldiers and 1,000 pieces of equipment from more than 30 units. The major purpose of the drill, according to the report—which cites multiple senior Russian military officers—is to ensure Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces have sufficient readiness to conduct offensive operations involving the massive and simultaneous use of nuclear missiles.

Global Security Newswire previously carried a story on the nuclear exercise, also citing the Nezavisimaya Gazeta article. GSN described the exercise as “as practice for a large-scale nuclear offensive.” It added: “Exercise participants were set to position and prepare missile-firing units for launch, and to practice various administrative and support functions for the operation

Update:Military Veteran’s ‘Frustrating’ Job Interview With Macy’s

Update:Military Veteran’s ‘Frustrating’ Job Interview With Macy’s | Littlebytesnews Current Events |
A woman from Madera, Calif., claims she was discriminated against during a job interview at Macy’s in Fresno. It wasn’t due to the fact that she is a woman, she says it was because she's a military veteran. Army Specialist Kayla Reyes, 21, returned home from Afghanistan after a...


Reyes told TheBlaze on Friday that she interviewed for a sales associate position at Macy’s in February. What she was reportedly told by the hiring manager disturbed her, making her feel like her military service was somehow now a burden in civilian life.

Operating from what Reyes says is a misconception about former military personnel, the veteran claims the hiring manager was focused on her time at war.

Reyes confirmed that she was told “you wouldn’t really know how to approach people” because she’s “been over there” — meaning Afghanistan.

“Once a customer’s in your face, you wouldn’t know how to do it. You wouldn’t know how to react,” Reyes recalled the hiring manager saying.

In addition to her military service, Reyes also has past retail experience, which should make her an easy hire. Instead, she was allegedly told that she “wouldn’t be able to do good here.” She was told that perhaps a job in “loss prevention” would be a better fit.

“It’s just frustrating,” she told TheBlaze. “Here I am at 21, having served overseas, and I can’t get a job at Macy’s. It’s crazy.”

But she also said she is grateful for the outpouring of support she has received from “thousands and thousands” of people across the country who have shared her story on social media sites.


Betsy Nelson, Macy’s vice president of media relations in the Northwest region, released the following statement on the incident earlier this month:

“Employing veterans is a priority at Macy’s, and we have proudly hired thousands to work within our stores and corporate organization. Our commitment to veterans is strong, as we recognize that veterans possess leadership skills that we find are essential in a dynamic department store environment. Ms. Reyes’ application for a position with Macy’s is, in fact, still under consideration as we continue to consider the types of retail jobs that may be available. We are actively looking for an appropriate open position that would be best suited for her skills and experience level, as we do with all prospective employees.”

The statement does not address the hiring manager’s alleged comments or behavior.

Reyes said a Macy’s representative later offered her a job after her story went viral, but she turned it down. The company has yet to actually apologize to her over the incident.

Reyes told TheBlaze she is no longer interested in working at Macy’s and has instead accepted a job with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

On Friday, Macy’s posted another statement on Facebook:

Thank you for reaching out to Macy’s and giving us the chance to speak
to you directly. Macy’s commitment to our veterans is sincere and
strong. As a company that stands for inclusion in the workplace and our
stores, we do not tolerate discrimination of any kind. We proudly
employ thousands of veterans within our organization, as we know that
veterans possess leadership skills that are an asset in a dynamic
department store environment. As with any prospective employee, we
actively looked for appropriate and available positions that would be
best suited for Ms. Reyes’ skills and experience level, and, in fact,
identified and offered her a job at our store. We were disappointed
when she declined.

At Macy’s, we have created a special
Military Executive Development Program where we train veterans for key
executive roles, giving them the tools and industry training to position
them for success. In addition, Macy’s has partnered with the Got Your 6
organization for a campaign in our stores to raise funds and awareness
to assist veterans as they return to civilian life. Last year, we raised
over $3.4 million with our customers and look forward to raising more
funds this year.
Thank you.

In response, Reyes wrote: “Correct. A few weeks after the interview and after this story went viral, I did receive an email for a job there. I was very respectful in my response to them. I did not feel comfortable working in a store where a job was offered to me because of the way this has all turned out. I have kept my military bearings throughout this entire situation. Thank you. Spc. Reyes Kayla.”


littlebytesnews's insight:

Good for her for standing on principles...and good for Macy's for offering her a job after her case was made public, but she should not have been discriminated against in the first place!! I hope other employers think before they treat our military vets this way!

'Sizeable' Russian force at Ukraine border: NATO

'Sizeable' Russian force at Ukraine border: NATO | Littlebytesnews Current Events |

NATO's top commander, General Philip Breedlove, said Sunday there was a "very sizeable" Russian troop presence on the border with Ukraine and warned of a possible incursion into the Moscow-backed separatist territory of Transdniestr.

"The force that is at the Ukrainian border now to the east is very, very sizeable and very, very ready," the head of the US European Command told the Brussels Forum.

"What I think is worrisome is that Russia has used these series of snap exercises to sort of condition us," he added at the forum organised by the US think tank the German Marshall Fund.

Russia's military announced Friday that it had carried out exercises in Transdniestr, a Moscow-backed separatist territory of Moldova which lies on Ukraine's southwestern border. The Russian troops are massed to the east of the country.

NATO has previously observed several large-scale exercises by the Russian army, in which the "forces were brought to readiness and exercised and then they stood down," Breedlove said.

"Then, as we have all seen, a snap exercise, large formation brought to readiness and, boom, into Crimea we (Russians) went with a highly ready, highly prepared force," he said.

"There is absolutely sufficient force postured on the eastern border of Ukraine to run to Transdniestr if the decision was made (in Moscow) to do that," Breedlove said, adding: "And that's very worrisome."

While Moscow's military capability to intervene in Transdniestr is in no doubt, the allies "don't know about the intent", Breedlove said, adding however that Russia has been "acting much more like an adversary than a partner" since the start of the crisis in Ukraine.

The games in Transdniestr came after pro-Western Moldovan President Nicolae Timofti on Tuesday voiced concerns that the Crimean scenario could play out in his mainly Russian-speaking country.

Not good....I hope we don't have to go to war for Ukraine....since they aren't part of NATO though Obama will likely continue to play the sanctions game...only emboldening Putin....but will Putin want to go into NATO protected Poland or Estonia next??

Iran builds life-size replica of U.S. Nimitz-class aircraft carrier

Iran builds life-size replica of U.S. Nimitz-class aircraft carrier | Littlebytesnews Current Events |
Construction on the crude model, described by U.S. officials as a glorified barge, appears to be in full swing at a ship yard near Bandar Abbas, as shown in newly released commercial satellite images.


Iran is in the process of building a mock-up of an American Nimitz-class aircraft carrier with the possible goal of blowing it up as a publicity stunt. 

Construction on the crude model appears to be in full swing at a shipyard near Bandar Abbas, as shown in newly released commercial satellite images.

'They got this barge and threw some wood on top of it to make it look like the USS Nimitz. That's all we know for sure,' a U.S. defense official told AFP.

Officials in the Obama administration believe that the faux carrier might be used for propaganda value, but they are not sure at this time what Teheran is hoping to accomplish with this project. 

The wooden, non-operational aircraft carrier made to look like a Nimitz-class nuclear-powered American vessel was first spotted on the Persian Gulf last summer, the New York Times reported.  

Besides having the shape of the 1,100-foot-long carriers, such as USS Abraham Lincoln and USS Carl Vinson, the shipbuilders also replicated the distinctive white markings on the bow.

A satellite flying over Gachin shipyard also photographed a fake plane parked on the deck of the equally fake carrier.

But officials are not overly concerned with the boxy, too-short replica, saying that unlike the real thing, Iran's glorified barge is not operational or propelled by nuclear power.

BREAKING: Lt. Gen. McInerney Says #MH370 Is In Pakistan – ‘I Got A Source That Confirmed It Yesterday’ (Video)

BREAKING: Lt. Gen. McInerney Says #MH370 Is In Pakistan – ‘I Got A Source That Confirmed It Yesterday’ (Video) | Littlebytesnews Current Events |

Retired Lt. General Thomas McInerney was on America’s News HQ today to once again discuss his theory that missing flight MH370 flew to Pakistan.
McInerney and LIGNET Intel Group still believe the plane flew to Pakistan.

Langley Intelligence Group Intel Group released a second report Friday on the missing plane.

As the search for Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 drags on without a trace of wreckage at sea, the likelihood of foul play looms larger. One country keeps rising to the top of the list of suspects: Pakistan.

Ten days after the flight vanished, LIGNET learned that engineers at Boeing, the plane’s manufacturer, believed the missing aircraft was on the ground in Pakistan. For several reasons, including al-Qaeda’s presence there, historical attack patterns, corruption, weakness and terrorist sympathies at the highest levels inside Pakistan, that hunch may be right.

Lt. Gen. McInerney discussed why the plane flew to Pakistan.

“LIGNET put out a report, substantiated yesterday, that there sources got their information from Boeing sources, which is covert. Not that they got their information from the Boeing Company because they’re involved in the investigation, that the airplane was in Pakistan. That was confirmed by LIGNET on Monday and I got another source at LIGNET that confirmed it yesterday… I do believe that those people in Pakistan, in the ISI, those people who knew where Osama Bin Laden was and didn’t tell us. I believe those same elements could be involved with getting that airplane into a Pakistan air force base.”

littlebytesnews's insight:

Hmm...if this is true....the terror plot thickens....and my theory of human trafficking goes out the door, unless the people were taken off the plane alive and their bodies/organs sold or they are being sold into human trafficking....OR the US military shot it down because they were non-responsive after flying over our naval base Diego Garcia and now the US doesn't want to take blame for shooting down a plane with mostly Chinese passengers on board...which could lead into a war.

January 2014:armed men from Mexican military cross US border?

January 2014:armed men from Mexican military cross US border? | Littlebytesnews Current Events |

WASHINGTON — Just before 8:30 a.m. January 26, two figures dressed in camouflage and carrying military assault rifles crossed an international border, making their way on foot through the quiet desert terrain, unaware that they were under the constant watch of authorities in the country they had just entered.

Within minutes a border patrol agent confronted the two men. Weapons were drawn. Asked for identification, the two men provided their names — which didn’t correspond with the names on their uniforms. After a brief, tense standoff, the two men retreated back across the border just as reinforcements were arriving.

No, this isn’t the opening scene to the next season of Homeland, or some harrowing special-forces mission gone wrong in a distant corner of the world.

The armed incursion occurred on United States soil, outside Sasabe, Arizona, just north of the U.S. Mexico border. Drug dealers and migrants use a large wildlife preserve to the east and the empty desert to the west of Sasabe as trafficking corridors.

Both Mexican and U.S. border agents have crossed over the border in this area, pursuing suspects. But according to officials familiar with the situation, border crossings by members of either military are rare. In a January letter to the head of Customs and Border Protection about the incident, Sen. Tom Coburn asked if the agency has “concerns that some members of the Mexican Military could be providing security and/or intelligence to Drug Trafficking Organizations.” The Sinaloa Cartel, widely considered one of the world’s most powerful drug syndicates, operates along the Sasabe stretch of the border.

“Anytime individuals in military uniforms cross a border that’s obviously cause for concern,” the Oklahoma Republican told BuzzFeed Friday. “This incident deserves a close look.”

An internal CBP “Foreign Military Incursion” incident report was provided by a confidential informant to BuzzFeed and verified by Sen. Coburn. It makes for riveting reading.

US destroyer en route to Black Sea for 'routine' drills

US destroyer en route to Black Sea for 'routine' drills | Littlebytesnews Current Events |
A US guided-missile destroyer is en route to the Black Sea but naval officials said Thursday it was a "routine" deployment that was planned before the crisis unfolded in Ukraine. The USS Truxtun departed the Greek port of Souda Bay Thursday to carry out joint training with Romanian and Bulgarian forces, the US Navy said in a statement. "While in the Black Sea, the ship will conduct a port visit and routine, previously planned exercises with allies and partners in the region," it said. Although portrayed as unrelated to tensions in Ukraine, where pro-Russian forces have taken de facto control over the Crimean peninsula, the presence of a US naval destroyer in the Black Sea sends a symbolic message to Moscow.
