“You guys are dragging me down. Every time I get done with the seven-day (forecast), you guys are like, ‘Ughhh, goshh, ahhh,’” Grand Rapids station WXMI meteorologist Garry Frank said live on air after his coworkers started whining again about Michigan’s blistering cold weather.

“Doesn’t matter what time I come on. 4:30, 5:30, 6:30, and then you expect me to be chipper for five straight hours. It’s miserable. What do you want me to do, lie to you? I’ll put 70 every day next time,” he added . . .

No worries, because his coworkers took his rant with good humor. So did the rest of America, which quickly elevated Frank to hero status for his willingness to keep it oh so real with us:

“So people keep asking me about the warm up and such. But the anchors and everyone always reacted the SAME way all week. I mentioned a couple of warm days and they STILL focused on the cold after,” he said to BuzzFeed.

Does This Video Show Jesus’ Blood Leaking Out of His ‘Tomb’?

Conspiracy theorists claim the alleged tomb of Jesus is ‘leaking blood’ after a video appeared to show red liquid pooling on top of it.

Shaky footage shot at the Stone of Anointing in Jerusalem showed red patches on top of the slab as excited believers shouted in the background . . .

‘The leaking blood phenomenon is usually explained by more mundane things,’ Nigel Watson, author of Haynes UFO Investigations Manual, told MailOnline. . .

Nicola Kanaan, from Galilee, claimed to have seen the ‘blood’ coming out of the tomb as she captured the footage . . .

The stone is inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, one of the holiest sites in Christianity where Jesus’ body is believed to have been prepared for burial. (Read more from “Does This Video Show Jesus’ Blood Leaking Out of His ‘Tomb’?” HERE)

Nikki Haley Stuns as She Throws Away Script and Rips Into Russian Ambassador on UN Floor

By Bizpac Review. U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley ripped Russia a new one Friday over their continued defense of Syria dictator Bashar al-Assad in face of a reported chemical weapons attack on civilians.

Haley let Russian Ambassador to the UN Vassily Nebenzia know that she’s hip to the propaganda the diplomat was laying down, saying: “I’m in awe, Vassily, that you said what you said with a straight face. I really, really am.”

Haley’s remarks followed Russian Ambassador to the UN Vassily Nebenzia, who said at Friday’s meeting of the Security Council “there’s no credible proof” of the chemical attack and Moscow believes “what took place was a provocation of certain countries intelligence services,” according to CNN.

The eye-to-eye counter from Haley broke from her prepared remarks. She went on to comment on Russia’s expressed concerns about “unilateral threats related to Syria.”

“What is strange is that Russia is ignoring the real threat to international peace and security that has brought us all here,” Haley told the body. “And it is ignoring its own unilateral responsibility for all of it.” (Read more from “Nikki Haley Stuns as She Throws Away Script and Rips Into Russian Ambassador on UN Floor” HERE)

Haley Slams Russia Over Syria Chemical Attack

By CNN. US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley stated Friday that chemical weapons were used in an attack in Syria that left scores dead and she blamed Russia for complicity, as the Trump administration continues to weigh how to retaliate and Russia maintains its denial that the attack took place.

“Did a chemical weapons attack happen? Yes,” Haley said, speaking to reporters before a meeting of the Security Council. “The US has analyzed, yes it has happened. The UK has analyzed, yes, it has happened. And France has analyzed, yes, it has happened. Three countries.” . . .

She told the council that President Donald Trump “has not yet made a decision about possible action in Syria, but should the United States and our allies decide to act in Syria, it will be in defense of a principle on which we all agree.” . . .

“You don’t rush decisions like this,” she told reporters. “We’re making sure we have all the information to know if we do something, what will happen, how will it happen and will it hurt anyone.” (Read more from “Haley Slams Russia Over Syria Chemical Attack” HERE)

Kidnapped Child Uses Smarts to Thwart Abduction

By NBC San Diego. An 8-year-old girl who, along with her toddler brother, was inside of a car when it was stolen in Encanto was able to discretely call 911 from the back seat and help police arrest her captor before they crossed the border into Mexico, police said.

The father of the two children said he left them in his car with the engine on and air conditioning running while he ran into a beauty supply store on Imperial Avenue at about 12:30 p.m., according to the San Diego Police Department (SDPD).

Rodney Cole told NBC 7 he was only making a quick stop to purchase some hair ties for his daughter.

A witness to the robbery and kidnapping said a woman was bouncing a basketball near the car when she dropped it suddenly and peered into Cole’s car, presumably to see if the keys were still inside, and jumped in . . .

“I almost caught the car but she started driving erratically,” Cole said with his children at his side. “She got to the light and ran the light and made a left, and I was just stuck in the middle of the street crying and bawling. I didn’t know what to do, these are my babies.” (Read more from “Kidnapped Child Uses Smarts to Thwart Abduction” HERE)

How a Child Used Smarts to Save Herself and Brother From Abduction

By The Blaze. Cole called 911, KNSD reported — and then minutes later his daughter did the same thing from her own cellphone. Cole gave it to Malaiha in case of an emergency, KABC reported. She’s had it since she was 5, KNSD said.

“I said, ‘If you don’t take us back to our daddy, I’ll call police.’ Then I called 911,” Malaiha told KNSD she told her abductor.

“They said, ‘911, what’s your emergency?’ And I said, ‘Me and my little brother got kidnapped,’” Malaiha told KABC. “She said, ‘Can you tell us where you are? What do you see?’ I said, ‘I see signs that say Mexico border.’”

Malaiha told KABC the woman “tried to take the phone from me, but then I moved away from her. She said, ‘Give me the phone or I’m going to drive in circles and crash into the freeway wall.’”

While Malaiha said she eventually gave the phone to the woman, by then authorities knew where they were, KABC noted. (Read more from “How a Child Used Smarts to Save Herself and Brother From Abduction” HERE)

Facebook Has Been Worried About Data Leaks Like This Since It Went Public in 2012

By CNBC. Revelations of a massive data leak at Facebook have shocked users, investors, lawmakers and even some top executives in recent weeks — but the company warned of third-party breaches and government regulation more than six years ago when it first filed to go public.

In its 2012 IPO prospectus, Facebook called “improper access to or disclosure of our users’ information” a risk factor that could potentially harm the company’s reputation and financial outlook.

Here is the excerpt:

“Our efforts to protect the information that our users have chosen to share using Facebook may be unsuccessful due to the actions of third parties, software bugs or other technical malfunctions, employee error or malfeasance, or other factors. In addition, third parties may attempt to fraudulently induce employees or users to disclose information in order to gain access to our data or our users’ data. If any of these events occur, our users’ information could be accessed or disclosed improperly.”

None of that excuses Facebook’s data control and privacy problems that have been exposed to the world in recent weeks. But the cautionary disclosure suggests that the social media giant knew the general risks associated with its massive open platform.

Watch Ted Cruz Savage Mark Zuckerberg Over Facebook’s Liberal Bias

By The Federalist. Republican Sen. Ted Cruz savaged Mark Zuckerberg over Facebook’s tendency to shut down and silence conservatives and conservative ideas in a hearing on Tuesday.

Cruz asked Zuckerberg if Facebook considered itself a “neutral public forum,” making the Silicon Valley billionaire squirm.

Zuckerberg Apologizes, Promises Reform as Senators Grill Him Over Facebook’s Failings

By The Washington Post. Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg endured an hours-long grilling by dozens of U.S. senators Tuesday during which he repeatedly apologized and promised privacy reforms but also pointedly defended his company against the threat of new legislation.

Zuckerberg invoked Facebook’s unlikely journey — from a tiny start-up he co-founded in his Harvard dorm room 14 years ago to a social media behemoth — in explaining Facebook’s frequent privacy missteps and its failure to spot and defeat Russia’s aggressive campaign to manipulate American voters in 2016 and beyond.

Senators repeatedly challenged Zuckerberg’s explanations in the wide-ranging hearing, a rare joint session before two Senate panels — the Commerce and Judiciary committees — with 42 senators questioning the Facebook executive . . .

Zuckerberg took responsibility for the missteps. “We didn’t take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake. And it was my mistake, and I’m sorry. I started Facebook, I run it, and I’m responsible for what happens here.” (Read more from “Zuckerberg Apologizes, Promises Reform as Senators Grill Him Over Facebook’s Failings” HERE)

Mystery ‘Trumpet Sounds From Sky’ in Hawaii

By WND. Snippins News has posted online a video that contains sounds that are described as possibly being from “tidal waves, methane explosions, underground earthquakes, or shifting sand dunes.” . . .

“Although it’s probable that these ‘weird apocalyptic’ booming sounds seemingly coming from the skies have an earthly origin, USGS scientist David Hill says that it’s also possible some of these noises originate from above,” the report explains. . .

Some, the posting explains, are speculating “that the end times and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ are imminent.”

“Jesus Christ is coming soon. I say it is a trumpet,” said “Believer John Seventeen” on YouTube.

“User Jeff Suttles twisted the end times angle into a Trump joke. ‘Heaven is trying to influence the outcome of the 2020 election by blowing trumpets,’ he wrote. ‘I say that Donald is colluding with heaven. Time to call for a special council [sic] and impose sanctions,’” PJ Media wrote. (Read more from “Mystery ‘Trumpet Sounds From Sky’ in Hawaii” HERE)

Sign of the Apocalypse? Trumpet-Like Sounds Recorded on Video in Hawaii

By PJ Media. A video recording of eerie trumpet sounds from Hawaii has gone viral on YouTube, leading some to speculate that the End Times and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ are imminent. Others suggested UFOs, scientific explanations, and even Godzilla. (Watch the video below.) . . .

The video itself has no clear religious meaning, however.

Snippins News posted the video, reporting, “Not the first time to be heard, but it’s been heard in multiple places all strangely at the same time.”

“Unusual and unexplained noises are recorded in various locations around the world from time to time,” Snippins News added. “While the specific origins of all such sounds may not yet be known, most scientific research points to natural causes such as tidal waves, methane explosions, underground earthquakes, or shifting sand dunes as explanations for these aural phenomena.”

WATCH: Stormy Daniels’ Attorney Appears on Megyn Kelly. She Wipes the Floor With Him.

In a contentious and entertaining interview on her morning show Wednesday, Megyn Kelly challenged Michael Avenatti, the lawyer of porn star Stormy Daniels, to defend his client’s rationale for claiming the non-disclosure agreement she signed with Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen in 2016 for $130,000 has “suddenly become invalid.”

“So you represent her, claiming that this agreement is invalid, you say it’s not valid, but she abided by it for 16 months without objection and cashed the $130,000 check that the [future] president’s lawyer gave to her,” she began (video below). “So when did it suddenly become invalid?”

Avenatti responded by claiming that Daniels “had understood during that 16-month time period that [Trump] had actually signed it. She was not provided with a copy of the agreement, but it was her understanding that the [future] president had signed the agreement and that he was upholding his obligations under the agreement.”

Kelly fired back: “His obligation in principle was to pay her $130,000, and that happened.”

“Well not exactly,” said Avenatti. Trump was also obliged to provide “a release of any claims” and to “stay away from her and her family” and “not to comment about her” or allow his agents to comment about her. “And, of course, Mr. Cohen broke that by responding to a report in the Wall Street Journal.” (Read more from “WATCH: Stormy Daniels’ Attorney Appears on Megyn Kelly.

By The Daily Wire. On Tuesday, while speaking during a city council meeting on curtailing gun violence, an African-American gun owner in North Carolina blasted government officials who want to restrict gun rights of law-abiding citizens . . .

“When are you all gonna start standing up for the majority? … I’m the majority! I’m a law-abiding citizen who’s never shot anybody,” Mark Robinson said. “It seems every time we have one of these shootings, nobody wants to put the blame where it goes, which is at the shooter’s feet.

Greensboro Neighbors Debate Gun Control at City Council Meeting

At the City Council meeting Tuesday night, they opened their conversation to neighbors to hear what the community thinks should be done.

Some said there needs to be stricter gun laws. Other neighbors argued that current laws in place protect the rights of lawful gun owners.

Video of a Mom High on Opioids With Young Daughter in Car Will Shake You to the Core

A gut-wrenching video has emerged showing a woman seemingly high on opioids slurring her words as she attempts to drive her hungry daughter for food.

The disturbing footage, which surfaced Wednesday on LiveLeak, appears be filmed by one of the unidentified woman’s daughters who is sitting in the passenger’s seat. The young girl can be heard telling her mom, “I’m ready,” before handing her the car keys. The woman looks to be barely conscious, responding in mumbling sentences that are difficult to decipher.
