That super-volcano under Yellowstone? Well, it’s waaay bigger than they thought. And that’s not the bad news.  By  Kelly 

According to WNCT“Underneath Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho, there is a reservoir of magma that is more than twice the size that researchers previously thought. It’s not getting bigger. It’s just that new technology has made the ability to see it better. This will also have implications on the extent of the volcano’s impact when it erupts. Researchers with the U.S.G.S. say that the last time the volcano erupted was some 640,000 years ago. They also say that this supervolcano has the potential to spew more than 240 cubic miles of magma across Montana, Idaho and Wyoming with global effects. Scientists do believe that it will erupt again one day, but do not know when.”
The Yellowstone Caldera, to give the supervolcano its proper name, could blow anytime. But that doesn’t mean it’s due – or even overdue according to geologists.
The last full-scale eruption of the Yellowstone Supervolcano, the Lava Creek eruption which happened approximately 630,000 years ago, ejected approximately 240 cubic miles (1,000 km3) of rock, dust and volcanic ash into the sky. Geologists are closely monitoring the rise and fall of the Yellowstone Plateau, which measures on average 0.6 inches (1.5 cm) yearly, as an indication of changes in magma chamber pressure.

REPORT: Bill Clinton Hated Hillary's New Book, Threw It In Garbage      ByJoseph Curl

Hillary Clinton didn't lose the 2016 election. Everyone else lost it for her.
So far she's blamed: FBI director James Comey, Russia, computer bots, Wikileaks, Bernie Sanders, Facebook, Joe Biden, fake news, Twitter, voter ID laws, the vast right-wing conspiracy, sexism, Barack Obama, ageism, Anthony Weiner, white women, xenophobia, black people, the electoral college, the DNC, misogyny, women cowed by their husbands — even former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
The two-time loser is now on a tour selling her new book, What Happened (as if she needs more money). She's wandering the country and, for some reason, Canada, telling a few hundred people at a time that the world conspired against her when she got absolutely pummeled by Donald Trump in the presidential race.
Now, Edward Klein, an author who has written several books about the Clintons, reports that Bill Clinton tried to dissuade Hillary on her blame-filled book, the New York Post reports. Klein's got a new book, All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump, coming out October 30, and he's got some tasty nuggets in there.
“Before Hillary sent the manuscript to her publisher, she gave it to Bill to read, and he made major changes with a red pencil,” said a close Clinton family friend. “But she refused to even read his corrections, and he got so furious that he tossed the entire manuscript into the garbage.
“He told her the book made her look bewildered, angry and confused, and that those were poor qualities in a person who aspired to be a world leader,” the friend continued.
“He hated the title because calling it ‘What Happened’ would only make people say, ‘You lost.’ He urged her to postpone the pub date and rewrite the book, but she yelled at him and said, ‘The book is finished and that’s how it’s going to be published.’”
Klein also writes that Bill told Hillary just a month before the election that she was losing, urging her to campaign in Rust Belt states like Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania — all of which she lost to Trump.
“She told him he was delusional,” Klein writes.
We've often thought the same thing, but in this case, Bubba was spot on.

KIMMEL: "You should put your mouth on it"..........these late night hosts are so sanctimonious but.....they should remember the old adage, "ye who are without sin, cast the first stone"

I love it when someone like kimmel gets caught.

Before Jimmy Kimmel Lectured You on Ethics, He Asked Women to Grab his Crotch...

Jimmy Kimmel has anointed himself the arbiter of all that is good, caring, noble and moral. Be it healthcare, guns, Donald Trump grabbing women by the p*ssy, or poor Cecil the Lion, Jimmy always has wise words for us little people.
Here’s Jimmy telling women to touch his junk and put their mouths on it.

Now, I want to be clear here: these women consented. I’m not going all “OMG, OUTRAGE” over what Kimmel did in this segment. Was it icky? To me, a woman, yes (note that byline). But the woman are going along with it no problem. It’s possible a few women didn’t want to play and skipped the game. They’re not on camera.
What Kimmel is doing here is “all in fun” with sexual double entendres galore. The women, as I already stated, are playing along. They’re out in public and are, to my eyes, in no way coerced or threatened. Had I been walking on the street and Kimmel asked if I would play a game involving touching his dark places, I would’ve passed and carried on. These women played the game. Okay? Okay.
But for Kimmel to now erect monuments of virtue, when he thought having women on the street touch around his private parts was funny, is a little off brand. Don’t claim to be this great hero when you told ladies to put their mouths on it as they bent before you. On camera.
The internet is forever, Jimmy

Berkeley Students Protest Exam, Demand ‘Take Home Essay’ Because White Privilege And Stuff    October 9, 2017 ByFrank Camp

A video has surfaced on YouTube showing students at the University of California, Berkeley protesting an exam, and demanding a "take-home essay with significant time to prepare." The reason? "Our well-beings are being put on the line because of our emotional, mental, and physical stress that [Berkeley] is compounding with what is already going on in our every day lives," according to one of the students in the video.
"The content of this class and the way it is being taught is not satisfactory. And even if it is ... we feel that we haven't had the opportunity to interact with the text and information. We demand that you make and [hold space] to [study] the voices of students of color," one protester stated.
After nearly four minutes of non-stop speaking, one student asked if this was "a filibuster." A female protester was outraged by his sarcasm:

"Investigation" going on far too long. A waste of taxpayer money, and as far as Mueller is concerned, is it his EGO that keeps the witch hunt going ??

Amid cooperation, some Trump allies urge Russia probe fight

Associated press  Video by MSNBC
WASHINGTON — Even as President Donald Trump's advisers encourage him to accept the realities of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe, longtime friends and allies are pushing Trump to fight back, citing concerns that his lawyers are naive to the existential threat facing the president.
Trump supporters and associates inside and outside the White House see the conciliatory path as risky to the maverick president's tenure. Instead, they want the street-fighting tweeter to criticize Mueller with abandon.
The struggle between supporters of the legal team's steady, cooperative approach, and the band of Trump loyalists who yearn for a fight, comes as the Mueller probe begins lapping at the door of the Oval Office. Mueller, who is investigating the firing of former FBI director James Comey and other key actions of the Trump administration, has signaled that his team intends to interview multiple current and former White House officials in the coming weeks and has requested large batches of documents from the executive branch.
In private, Trump remains relatively calm for now, but that doesn't mean he thinks the Russia probe is legitimate, and he could return to fighting Mueller at any moment, according to a group of about 15 Trump allies, advisers and former campaign aides, who spoke on condition of anonymity to speak candidly about private conversations with the White House.
The president still periodically flashes his anger, blasting the Senate intelligence committee's investigation in a tweet last Thursday and urging them to investigate journalists instead of his campaign and family. And in a private dinner with social conservatives last month, Trump expressed frustration over Attorney General Jeff Sessions' recusal, which helped pave the road to Mueller's appointment.
"The president respects what Bob Mueller is doing and has fully cooperated and asked everyone around him to fully cooperate with Bob," said Trump's attorney, John Dowd. "And as a result," he added, there has been for months "a very productive, professional relationship."
Ty Cobb, the White House lawyer responsible for responding to Mueller's information requests, said it's important to Trump "and the country to get this behind us."
"The White House is working diligently in full cooperation with the special counsel to complete the responses to all pending requests, and the president's frustration does not extend to the special counsel personally in any way," he added.

Obama's $400,000 speech could prompt Congress to go after his pension

WASHINGTON — Last year, then-president Barack Obama vetoed a bill that would have curbed the pensions of former presidents if they took outside income of $400,000 or more.
So now that former president Barack Obama has decided to accept $400,000 for an upcoming Wall Street speech, the sponsors of that bill say they'll reintroduce that bill in hopes that President Trump will sign it.
"The Obama hypocrisy on this issue is revealing," said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and sponsor of the 2016 bill. "His veto was very self-serving

Detroit Firefighter Fired for Bringing Watermelon to Station House     By Rick Moran October 8, 2017  

A 41-year-old probationary firefighter has been fired after his first day on the job because he brought a watermelon to work.
Robert Pattison went to introduce himself to his fellow firefighters and, as was the tradition at the firehouse, brought some food to share. But while most rookie firefighters brought donuts, Pattison brought a watermelon. Some of the black firefighters, who make up about 90% of the station, said they were offended by the act and the Detroit Fire Department decided to fire the probie.
"When you get your first detail at a firehouse you pretty much know what you are getting yourself into," Patrick Trout told Fox 2,  "So you would have to say it was probably a bad call."
FOX 2 asked, "Is it racially insensitive to bring a watermelon into a fire house?"
"To some people," McCarty said.
Pattison told Fox 2 by phone that it was not a joke; he hadn't meant to offend his fellow firefighters.
The news outlet reported, "Fire Commissioner Eric Jones says the Fenton native was officially discharged."
Jones said in a statement: "There is zero tolerance for discriminatory behavior inside the Detroit Fire Department. On Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017, at Engine 55, a trial firefighter (probationary employee) engaged in unsatisfactory work behavior which was deemed offensive and racially insensitive to members of the Detroit Fire Department."
"After a thorough investigation, it was determined that the best course of action was to terminate the employment of this probationary employee," he added.
Fox 2 added, "In a world where racial tensions run high, some tell me the trial firefighter should have known better. Trout doesn't know if he meant anything by it - but feels it was a bad choice."
"For sure by far it was," Pattison said.
Fox 2 asked, "Should he have lost his job over a watermelon?"
"I don't think so," McCarty said. "Between what he did and what was there are a few things that could have been done."
If it wasn't a joke, what was it? To unthinkingly play to stereotypes is insensitive -- "a bad call," as Mr. Trout observed. I suspect we would have seen a similar reaction from black firefighters if Pattison had brought a bucket of fried chicken or collard greens.
But the question here isn't whether was Pattison wrong but rather whether hė should he have been fired. On the one hand, the department's view is Pattison was a probationary worker and keeping him on would have caused racial friction. It was simply easier to fire him and avoid a racially tense situation.
Pattison would be correct in thinking this is terribly unfair. But it was still his error

BUT....No matter what they find, I'm convinced that "Killary Klinton" will NEVER be charged

New Clinton Emails Uncovered, Show More Mishandling of Classified Information   ByJoseph Curl @josephcurl

A government watchdog group has released more than 1,600 documents showing classified information being transmitted through the secret — and unsecured — account of Huma Abedin, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff.
Clinton set up her own private email server in her New York home, which she used throughout her time at the State Department. She often asked Abedin to forward her email that was classified, which the aide did.
Judicial Watch reports that "the documents included 97 email exchanges with Clinton not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to at least 627 emails that were not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over."
On September 11, 2009, the highly sensitive name and email address of the person giving the classified Presidential Daily Brief was included in an email forwarded to Abedin’s unsecure email account by State Department official Dan Fogerty.
The State Department produced many more Clinton and Abedin unsecured emails that were classified:
  • On March 8, 2009, Clinton sent classified information using her unsecure account. She forwarded to former Senator George Mitchell an email from Tony Blair relating to Palestine. The email had been sent to her at Clinton responded to Blair, saying she had forwarded the email to Mitchell. A former Senate majority leader, Mitchell was serving as Special Envoy for Middle East Peace. ...
  • On November 1, 2009, U.S. Ambassador to the UAE Rick Olson sent classified information to Abedin’s unsecure email account. The email shows that Olsen was traveling with Hillary in the Middle East, and Abedin asked him to “work on a list of everything covered in the mbz [presumably Mohammed bin Zayed bin Sultan Al-Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi] meeting for Hillary.” Olson asks: “do you want it on this system (I can sanitize), or on the other system.” She replies: “This system easier. We are staying without class[ified] computers. Thx.” ...
  • On December 26, 2009, U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Carlos Pascual sent a memo to Clinton, which was found on Abedin’s unsecure email account. It contained extensive classified information involving U.S. and Mexican counter-drug operations in Mexico.
The list goes on and on ... and on. Read the whole report here.

Doesn't highlighted portion PROVE that the wrongdoing was done on purpose ? She admittedly knew she was receiving classified info on an insecure system

Las Vegas Plot Thickens: Stephen Paddock’s Plane Was Owned By Obama Administration Intelligence Contractor    5 Oct 2017 by Volubrjotr

Mandalay Bay
A few internet sleuths have taken matters into their own hands after the obvious disinformation campaign by the mainstream media surrounding the Las Vegas shooting. Mounting evidence of what looks like a false flag is worrying many. And once you read this, those fears will be shoved into overdrive.
On the surface, the tweet doesn’t say much. But how much can Mike Toke really say in a limited amount of characters? But what he does manage is enough to get anyone seeking the truth to follow all these leads and look into everything that the media and our government continues to hide from us. It’s what’s embedded in the tweet that counts.
  1. Multiple shooters in Vegas: the standard progression in staged attacks

Looking closely, the first thing you will notice is that the shooter, Stephen Paddock, had a pilot license and owned two planes. This is well-established fact. The tail number of one of those planes is N5343M, a Cirrus SR-20. You can see that this was owned by Paddock by going to the website But Paddock doesn’t own this plane anymore. It was grounded three years ago, and it’s now in the hands of none other than Volant LLC, which there is little information on.
However, Volant Associates is none other than a Department of Defense contractor. Meaning Paddock’s plane has been in the hands of the United States government for the past three years and grounded since – if Volant LLC is being used as a way to hide information. Considering what Volant Associates does, that wouldn’t be so far fetched.  But the plane’s information is all easily verified here on It’s been in Roanoke, Virginia since April 25, 2014.
Volant’s describes it’s mission on their website as providing “the industry’s preeminent professionals to discriminating U.S. government and intelligence-and-defense-industry customers.”
The registration of this plane is also listed as “active” even though it hasn’t been flown in three years. Strange enough yet? Well, it gets even better. The FAA should have this same information. But they don’t. Their website shows that a different aircraft, a Cessna 152, maintains that tail number and it was last registered to a person in San Diego, California. The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) is a government agency, and it appears that it has scrubbed this plane’s information. Now, why would they do that? Well, the plot still thickens.
There is little to be known about Volant LLC., in Roanoke, Virginia. A company big enough to have a plane should have a website, at least that would be the assumption. But a Google search netted very little information other than they provide “business services.” But Volant Associates is a completely different matter. That’s your defense contractor. And their website says they are located in Chantilly, VA, which wouldn’t be too far from Volant LLC. in Roanoke. And a quick Google search of that verifies that the two cities are only 219 miles apart. So is Volant LLC., a cover company for the defense contractor? Is this a coincidence?
For a list of all of the contracts between Volant LLC. and the government, click here. They have worked for the Obama Administration. Could Paddock’s plane have been used in other scandals, such as the Fast and Furious gun running scheme? Who knows, and at this point, we may never know.
What all this means is entirely speculation right now. But isn’t is strange that this information is being kept from the public, and those who seek the truth are stuck finding it on their own?

UNLV class erupts after professor blames Las Vegas shooting on Trump

WATCH: Teacher Tells Students Trump Is A Murderer 
10/07/2017  Source: Young Conservatives  by: Nickarama

The shooting in Las Vegas was a horrible tragedy with Stephen Paddock taking the lives of 59 people and over 500 people being injured.

Police and the FBI are now investigating to see what may have motivated him.

They’re exploring following leads around the country and across the world about people with whom he may have interacted. They are also examining trips he took, including to the Middle East.

While the police have said they don’t believe anyone else was involved in the shooting, the Clark County Sheriff has said that they believe the shooter may have had help of some kind because he finds it very difficult to believe that Paddock could have done all this by himself without aid.

Psych drugs in every shooter since Columbine – including Paddock   By Kelly

Image: Dr. Ignatius Piazza
I’m a big fan of Ignatius Piazza, owner of Parhump, Nevada’s Frontsight Firearms Training Institute and World Champion emailer! I train at his facility at least once a year and read his emails regularly (well, many of them, he sends a ton!)
On Monday he predicted that authorities would find that Stephen Paddock had psych medications in his blood. He claims that these medications cause the patient to turn killer in certain cases. He says it’s not the guns it’s the medications.
Lo, and behold!  From FOX News/AP:
Stephen Paddock, the gunman who opened fire on a crowd at a country music concert on the Las Vegas Strip on Sunday, was prescribed an anti-anxiety drug in June, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
The paper, citing records from the Nevada Prescription Monitoring Program, reported Tuesday that Paddock was prescribed 50, 10-milligram diazepam tablets by a physician on June 21. The brand name of the drug is Valium. The report said the drug could trigger aggressive behavior.
Authorities investigating the mass killing may look to a “psychological autopsy” to try to uncover what led Paddock to open fire into a crowd at a country music concert.
Jim Clemente, a retired FBI profiler, said in an interview that if Paddock’s suicide did not destroy his brain, experts could find some kind of neurological disorder or malformation.
“The genetics load the gun, personality and psychology aim it, and experiences pull the trigger, typically,” Clemente said. He pointed out that Paddock’s father — a bank robber — was diagnosed a psychopath.
Clemente speculated that there was “some sort of major trigger in his life — a great loss, a breakup, or maybe he just found out he has a terminal disease.”…
…Paddock had no known criminal record, and public records showed no signs of financial troubles, though he was said to be a big gambler.
His brother, Eric Paddock, said he was at a loss to explain the massacre. “No affiliation, no religion, no politics. He never cared about any of that stuff,” the brother said outside his Florida home.

UPDATE: People want more evidence about the claims made by Dr. Piazza. Check this out:  As well as the link below.


The Las Vegas Shooting Was The Stunning End To Megyn Kelly’s Career

Megyn Kelly’s career is stuck in a downward spiral.
She parlayed her attacks on Donald Trump into a multi-million dollar contract with NBC.
But the mass shooting in Las Vegas just proved it’s all over for Kelly.
Kelly’s contract with NBC called for her to be featured on three platforms – a Sunday night news magazine show, a daytime talk show, and a prominent role in NBC’s breaking news coverage.
Her Sunday night show was yanked from the air before its ten-episode run due to low ratings.
Kelly’s daytime talk show has been plagued by poor critical reviews, awkward guest interviews, and production issues.
Now her role in breaking news appears to have vanished too—which cements her move to NBC as a colossal mistake.
When NBC broke into programming to cover the horrendous tragedy in Las Vegas, Kelly was not featured on the coverage.
The New York Post reports:
“Megyn Kelly, NBC News’ $15 million woman, had her show bumped on Monday in the wake of the mass murders in Las Vegas — and sources say it’s a bad sign.
After a rough first week, “Megyn Kelly Today” was pre-empted at the 9 a.m. hour so that Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie could continue anchoring news on the deadliest shooting in US history.
“It’s baffling why they didn’t have Kelly participate in the coverage,” one network veteran said. “They seem confused.”
Kelly – who co-anchored Fox News election night coverage in 2012 and 2016 – was expected to beef up NBC News coverage of breaking news.
Instead she was benched.
Critics believe that because she bombed so badly on her first two opportunities with the network – primetime interviewer and daytime talk show host – she burned any opportunity to play a prominent role on breaking news.
Had Kelly performed better, it’s likely she would have been given the prominent assignment of anchoring – or at least contributing – to NBC’s coverage of the Las Vegas shooting since it took place during her time slot.
Her disappearing act adds fuel to the fire that NBC is frustrated with Kelly and looking for a graceful exit from this mistake.

Inside scoop: NBC now trying to get rid of Megyn Kelly. Even trying to get FOX to buy out her contract and take her back.
But Breitbart reports Fox has no interest in taking her back:
“But a high-ranking Fox News source told Breitbart News that there is “no way” Kelly could come back to the network. Quite simply, the source told Breitbart News, Kelly “would not be welcomed back.”
Kelly’s two TV shows flopped.
Now her failure to be included in NBC’s breaking news coverage cements her time at the peacock network as a failure.
Las Vegas Attack Was Predicted Online A Month Ago  By  Kelly 

Is this a coincidence? Is it a conspiracy theory gone crazy? It sounds very far-fetched to me but I thought I’d share it with you.
Last month, the social media site 4chan – more often associated with relentless trolling and unwashed couchsurfers with too much time on their hands – had these posts in its /pol/ forum, which were signed ‘John’ and speak of revealing ‘a little secret’ before warning readers to stay away from large groups in Las Vegas.
 The post was uploaded to 4chan on Sunday, September 10. It suggests that the Deep State is at work here, trying to scare Las Vegas into installing more security and greater control over the public at the expensive of liberty and to line the pockets of local invest

VIDEO: How a Radical Left-Wing Historian Birthed the Anti-Columbus Crusade By Kelly

Confederate statues aren’t the only ones to come under siege from protesters.
Christopher Columbus, the Spanish-backed Italian explorer who discovered the Americas, is also being attacked on a wide scale.
Activists and cities around the country are now working to change the holiday made in his name and are working to remove monuments in his likeness.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has even called for a commission that will review potentially removing the over 70-foot-tall column dedicated to Columbus that currently stands in Columbus Circle.
And Portland, Maine’s City Council recently designated the second Monday of October “Indigenous People’s Day” and has elected to stop celebrating Columbus Day.
This is quite a turnaround from when Columbus was almost universally admired.

Sen. Schatz: Listen to Corker's Warnings About WWIII

Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, said Americans should pay close attention to Sen. Bob Corker's comments that President Donald Trump's recklessness is risking World War III.

Corker, R-Tenn., had made his remarks in an interview with The New York Times.
He had charged that Trump was treating his office like a "reality show," and making threats toward other nations. Corker maintained it could set the U.S. "on the path to World War III."
Schatz took to Twitter on Sunday night to urge people to heed Corker's warnings. His comments were first reported by The Hill.
Schatz tweeted: "There's a tendency to wonder about the politics of Corker's interview. Ignore that, and listen to his warnings about an accidental war... War on Korean Peninsula could shut down trade to and from Asia for months or years... War on the Korean Peninsula would cause millions of lives to be lost... There are nearly 200,000 Americans living in South Korea and Japan."

The Investigation Into The Las Vegas Shooter’s Plans Took A Very Dark Turn

Information is still trickling in about the Las Vegas shooter and his evil plan.
He opened fire on a country music festival and killed 59 innocents and wounded hundreds more.
But the secret behind his real target has investigators frightened.
Police believe they have evidence showing the gunmen had targeted a nearby fuel tank.
He was hoping to inflict enough damage to cause a massive explosion that would have killed hundreds.
The Las Vegas Review Journal reports:
“Las Vegas Strip mass murderer Stephen Paddock used his Mandalay Bay hotel room to fire bullets at jet fuel tanks Sunday night, a knowledgeable source told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The bullets left two holes in one of two circular white tanks. One of the bullets penetrated the tank, but did not cause a fire or explosion near the Route 91 Harvest country music festival, another knowledgeable source said late Wednesday.
The tanks are roughly 1,100 feet from the concert site, where Paddock killed 58 people and wounded almost 500. Several airplane hangars belonging to prominent corporations are also near the tanks.
Within the past couple of days, a construction crew repaired the holes, and FBI agents inspected the tanks and took measurements of the line of fire from Mandalay Bay, the sources said.
Paddock, a 64-year-old Mesquite resident, had broken two windows in his 32nd-floor suite — one in line with the concert site and the other with a direct view of the fuel tanks, one source said.”
Fortunately the fuel tanks are built to withstand such damage and have fail-safes in place to prevent an explosion.
The Review Journal also reports:
“A source knowledgeable about airport operations said jet fuel is hard to ignite and tanks like those across from Mandalay Bay have mechanisms in place to prevent fires.
Mike Boyd, a Colorado-based aviation consultant, echoed those words.
“A machine gun is not going to blow up a tank of fuel,” Boyd said. “Jet fuel itself sitting there in a big wet pile is very hard to ignite. You have to be a very amateur terrorist to think anything like that.”
Further evidence emerged that the killer was planning an even more deadly attack after police found 50 pounds of explosives in his car. *
KTLA reports:
“Stephen Paddock didn’t just have 23 weapons in his Mandalay Bay hotel suite, which he turned into a sniper’s nest to kill 58 concertgoers in Las Vegas. He also had 50 pounds of explosives material and 1,600 rounds of ammunition in his car in the hotel parking lot, police said.”
As horrific and unimaginable as the shooting was, the killer was preparing for an even bigger massacre.

* I think I read that it was some kind of fertilizer, not an explosive material or device. Perhaps he was going to fertilize some plants at home. In order to explode, the fertilizer has to be mixed with other componants. They are GUESSING what Stephen Paddock had in his head. They are also GUESSING that he shot AT the fuel tanks. I'm pretty sure jet fuel has to be atomized to burn.....FAKE NEWS ???
