A longtime meteorologist is quitting his job at an Iowa TV station and plans to change careers after viewer backlash over his “liberal conspiracy theory on the weather” led him to seek treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder. Chris Gloninger announced Wednesday that he will depart KCCI-TV in Des Moines in July, according to the Washington Post. (Snip) When one of the angry messages appeared in his inbox, he rushed home from the hair salon where his wife was waiting alone and suggested to her that they call the police

Coming up, folks, after the break, our weather reporter will stand in front of an iceberg and tell us about light to moderate global warming with a 90% chance of Democrat lies propelled by a ridge of high pressure wokeness from the east. Last week, you might recall, two guest politician forecasters, both RINOS, put their fingers into the wind and said everything was cool while secretly investing in WunHungLow electric tractor company. It is thought the itchy and smelly wokeness plaguing Iowa might dissipate after November 2024, but the Democrat/Communist jet stream remains strong over parts of the country.

This may be a stupid question, but if he wants to be a meteorologist so badly, can’t he just go be one in a liberal area? Why all the PTSD/death threat drama?

The PTSD claims are so that he can collect unemployment, Social Security disability payments and live off of taxpayer dough for the rest of his life.etc. And maybe sue his ex-employer for a hostile work environment or something. I wonder if he has a "Go Fund Me" account set up so that he can fleece donors too.

The weather predictors are already predicting a really cold winter for the Midwest, Mid Atlantic, and New England regions. Last winter really didn't exist for those of us in the Mid Atlantic area last winter. Where I live, we might have had ten days of temps in the 20's at night. We had no snow, and if it got below 50, it was a cold day. In short, it was my kind of winter. No shoveling, scrapping, slipping, salt on the roads, or any of that stuff that makes winter a pain the arse. I'm all for global warming if that is the result.

Chicago (CBS) - A burglar who can't see something can't steal it either – that is the idea behind a new method of deterring crime by using fog. As CBS 2's Tara Molina reported Tuesday, the technology behind the fog release is a brand-new way of fighting the mass retail thefts plaguing the city. (Snip) "DensityUSA's instant fog technology is pretty unique," said Mike Egel, president and chief executive officer of DensityUSA. "When a criminal breaks in after hours, the alarm deploys; the fog deploys, and in seconds, your business is going to be protected." The reason, Egel said, is because the burglars won't be able to see what they're doing.

Austin, Texas — Liberal policies have led to a shocking explosion in homeless camps across the state capital, with around 10,000 people living in 168 different areas that have popped up across the city, sources tell The Post. The illegal camps have been visited and mapped by local filmmaker Jaime Hammonds and show how out of control Austin’s homeless crisis has become. His map reveals the clandestine encampments have spread to a far greater extent than many taxpaying residents had previously realized — dotting the entire city, including near popular tourist destinations (Snip) Hammonds warns that an even bigger public safety threat could be looming as the sites remain largely unregulated

Federal agencies are secretly accumulating mountains of data that could be used for “blackmail, stalking, harassment and public shaming” of American citizens. That allegation doesn’t come from a pink-haired civil-liberties fanatic — it’s in a new report for the nation’s chief spymaster, Avril Haines. The Fourth Amendment recognized Americans’ right “to be secure . . . against unreasonable searches and seizures.” But Washington is mothballing that lofty standard for a new motto: “Those who have nothing to hide have nothing to fear.” The latest federal surveillance tsunami is being spurred by purchases of commercially available information (CAI) that private companies vacuum up from data from smartphones, computers and other digital devices and trackers.

The secretive “Area 51” Air Force test range in southern Nevada established in the 1950s helped the U.S. and USAF prevail in the Cold War. Former Navy Captain Jerry Hendrix argues establishing a similar “Area 52” within Lake Michigan for the U.S. Navy could help us prevail in years to come. (Snip) “Foreign adversaries showed up not only to observe the operations and learn what they could about the United States’ most cutting-edge naval capabilities,” Hendrix wrote in Proceedings, “but also seized one of those assets,” a reference to the Saildrone Explorer unmanned surface vessel seized by Iran in August, 2022.

A second U.S. official was also able to confirm that the balloon did not appear to have transmitted any of the data it collected on its journey above North America, as was initially reported by the Wall Street Journal. The first official could not say whether any of the American gear was sold illicitly to China but said determining whether any of it came from illegal trade was a topic of serious concern

The Supreme Court has ruled that it is unlawful for colleges and universities to use race as a factor in admissions, overturning rulings from as far back as 1978 that claimed institutions of higher education had a valid interest in promoting racial diversity on campus and could thus give favorable consideration to black and Latino applicants in their admissions process. Two separate decisions were reached in which the nation’s highest court ruled that Harvard University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill engaged in unlawful discriminatory practices based on race that violated the Constitution.

The famed National Geographic magazine has become the latest victim of those painful Disney cuts: several writers of the already picked-over publication were laid off Wednesday.

This is the fourth round of layoffs since ownership of the title changed in 2015. Disney took over in 2019 after the Fox deal; the National Geographic Society remains a minority partner.
