White powder letters to politicians traced to Portland man

Oregon Live via Patriot Update:

Government agents have linked a Portland-area man to the mass mailing of threatening letters — laced with a mysterious white powder — to members of Congress and news media outlets.

A federal grand jury in Portland today handed up a two-count indictment that accuses 39-year-old Christopher Lee Carlson of mailing threats last month to U.S. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md.

The letter to Mikulski “indicated that it may contain a lethal pathogen to which the recipient may have been exposed” and the letter to Boehner contained a threat to injure him, according to the indictment. The missive to Mikulski threatened the use of a biological weapon.

This is the guy who sent letters to Colbert and Stewart explaining that one in ten of the letters he mailed would contain actual deadly pathogens. Yeah, that guy.

What They Found In The Middle Of The Desert Using Google Earth Is Incredibly Freaky

Google Earth is probably the best thing to happen to alien hunting in the last 100 years. With a simple click of the mouse, users can explore far-flung places and look for signs of alien activity across the globe.

There’s usually not much to be found, but every once in a while, true believers get lucky and find what they consider to be compelling evidence.

Last week, UFO hunters using Google Earth found this bizarre-looking complex in the desert just outside of Cairo, Egypt.

The complex contains two large, pointed buildings and some mysterious structures in circular formations.

As you might imagine, there is a shortage of facts surrounding the purpose of these buildings, which means that speculation is now running rampant online.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251602_570f0219465e4”, auid: “537251602” });

Some argue that these buildings play a role in a government conspiracy.


Less dramatic theorists have pointed out that they could be part of a movie set, presumably for the upcoming Star Wars film.

Regardless of their purpose, it’s hard to deny the inherent freakiness of finding two odd-looking buildings in the middle of the desert.

Jon Lovitz: Twitter love outweighs attacks from Left

Why is it, if I criticize the President I voted for on certain issues,
The left says "STFU"…
And I get 5,000 new followers on twitter?

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) July 26, 2012


As Twitchy has reported, Jon Lovitz has been attacked by the Left recently for the horrible crime of … speaking his own mind. That does not suit! How dare he not walk in Hollywood Left lockstep? For that, he must pay. And shaddup.

He refused to be silenced and has continued to speak his mind anyway, to the delight of all who love freedom. Twitter has responded; with 5,000 more followers for the actor.

Well done, Lovitz and Twitter!

So. What was up with Obama’s glowing ears during Syria speech? [photo]

So, the president gave a “speech” on the Syria airstrikes Tuesday morning. Then this happened.

Backlit ears aren't a good look.

This is smart power? You won’t believe how Team Obama described last night’s bombing of Syria

Here’s how Democrats’ war hypocrisy can be summed up with one brilliant tweet

President Obama to give an update on Syria/ISIS at 10 a.m. Here’s what he should say. . .

‘Grow the hell up’: Brace yourselves! Looks like Sally Kohn’s ‘having an episode’

Earlier today, the Senate uphelddue process by rejecting a bill that would prevent so-called “suspected terrorists” from purchasing guns.

Let’s just say Sally Kohn’s not taking it very well:


What else is new?

That’s a pretty tall order …


Disgraceful is as Sally does.

These 30 Inventions Will Transform Your Kitchen Into Awesomeness. #14 Though… What The?

When you have extra money to burn, it’s difficult not to spend it on stuff that’s just… cool. Stores like Sky Mall and Brookstone are full of strange gadgets that you’d probably never use, but want just the same. Some of these strange (and sometimes costly) tools could come it handy. However, it’s doubtful you’d use them enough to justify their cost. These are some of the best kitchen gadgets out there that you would never find in your normal kitchen.

1.) Pacman: helping bakers the world over.

2.) Need to store knives and satisfy your need to stab people?

3.) Or want to freak out your guests?

4.) It’s hard to say what this does, but it looks painful.

5.) Separating egg yolks can be creepy…

6.) Or adorable!

7.) Give your toothpicks their very own form of transportation.

8.) Did you know that bananas are heat resistant?

9.) I don’t need no corn on no cobs.

10.) Feel like Wolverine with this finger fork.

11.) When cooking is like an awesome science experiment.

12.) Give your dinner guests nightmares with these gadgets.

13.) This creepy/adorable little guy will help you dice cherries.

14.) Evil robot … or coffee machine?

15.) Peeling potatoes is for fools.

16.) S’MORES!

17.) Cut pizza like a boss.

18.) Crispy microwave bacon? YES.

19.) This mixer tries to be cute, but it’s just evil.

20.) It’s hard to say what this is, aside from terrifying.

21.) Spinning your own fork to eat spaghetti is for losers.

22.) Make your own sauce at home… or grind up things for fun.

23.) Stop mixing like a caveman.

24.) Picking up the jug to pour it is archaic. Use this rocking thing instead.

25.) Want to serve drinks? Use something cool to do so, like this.

26.) Two words: Custom toast.

27.) Chop things like a cool kid.

28.) Save dem bananas.

29.) Crack nuts like Hilary Clinton

30.) Mr. Penguin helps steep your tea the appropriate amount of time.

Even if I’d only use these things once a year, it would be totally worth it to have it in my kitchen. Nothing impresses family and friends like custom toast designs (am I right?). Share these awesome inventions by clicking below!

Look At That Tail! Watch The Moment This Pup Is Reunited With His Military Dad.


For loved ones of military servicemen and servicewomen, deployment is hard on every family member, including the furry one.

One dog hadn't seen his owner for nine months while he was away serving his country, and it's easy to tell that he missed his dad tons. All you have to do is watch the pup's reaction to seeing him for the first time in close to a year.

As soon as he knew the man was home, he practically flew down the stairs and sprinted toward his favorite human.

When Ellen Pulled Him On Stage, He Had No Idea It Would Totally Change His Life


Going to college and completing a degree is a major accomplishment, but for many, student loans are financially devastating.

Daquan Mincy is a full-timegraduate student at Salisbury University who is about to receive hisMasters in Education. Coming from a single-parent household, he is the first in his family to go to college. But even though he worked hard to get there, he had $50,000 in students loans to worry about. That's why Ellen Degeneres decided to change his life for the better when he was in the audience during a recent episode of her show.

Not only is Mincy a grad assistant, but he also teaches special education part time and mentor students while going to school. After working multiple jobs to put himself through college, he's graduating next week thousands of dollars in debt.
