Fayette Factor Marches On

(excerpt: Twilight Language)

High levels of Fayette Factor incidents give a sense that strangeness is all around. This Twilight Language blog only recently pointed to “The Fayette Factor & Trump Rally Incidents,” as well as other recent happenings (1, 2, 3). Here are a few more filling my Fayette file.

(1) Mad Cow mania
The operating rooms at the Washington Regional hospital in Fayetteville, Arkansas,  have been shutdown due to Mad Cow’s disease.

Health inspectors have confirmed a preliminary diagnosis of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a degenerative brain disease, at Washington Regional Medical Center, the hospital confirmed.
All operating rooms were closed down Wednesday [March 16, 2016] and surgical procedures were postponed. 40/29 News has reached out to WRMC for an update, but they have not returned our messages. The diagnosis follows a procedure done on February 15th and the lab results were received Wednesday morning.

(2) D.C. Metro Shutdown

The Lafayette Park area Metro cable fire resulted in a major shutdown of Washington D.C.’s subway system for March 16-March 17, 2016.

The investigation into [March 14, 2016’s] cable fire at McPherson Square is ongoing,” [Metrorail General Manager Paul J.] Wiedefeld said [to the Washington Post]. “As a preliminary matter, the conditions appear disturbingly similar to those in the L’Enfant incident of a year ago, and our focus is squarely on mitigating any risk of a fire elsewhere on the system.

McPherson Square is a square in downtown Washington, D.C. Adjacent buildings include the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the Lafayette Building housing the Export-Import Bank, the 15th Street financial district, and numerous hotels. It is one block northeast of Lafayette Park. It is served by the McPherson Square station of the Washington Metro. This is the main station to access the White House, and the Vermont Avenue exit is directly underneath the Department of Veterans Affairs building.

(3) New body found in location where many have been recovered
The New River Gorge Bridge in Fayetteville, West Virginia.
West Virginia State Police said on March 11, 2016, that the discovery of human remains and personal possessions found near the New River Gorge Bridge at Fayetteville, West Virginia, could solve an 18-year-old mystery: the disappearance of a Virginia Tech graduate student.

The remains were found in a heavily wooded area Thursday [March 10, 2016] along with Robert L. Kovack’s driver’s license, a college ID and car keys, State Police Sgt. Kenneth Tawes told The Roanoke Times.
The 24-year-old from Rivesville, West Virginia, disappeared Sept. 18, 1998, while he was on his way to a West Virginia University-Maryland football game in Morgantown….More than four dozen bodies have been recovered below the bridge since Kovack’s disappearance 18 years ago, Tawes said. The most recent was a suicide at the same spot six months ago, he said.

TEXAS, INDIANA, FLORIDA, ARKANSAS, OKLAHOMA, AND LOUISIANA to arm all National Guardsmen in wake of Tennessee massacre of U.S. military personnel by a devout Muslim

here-are-the-victims-of-the-chattanooga-shooting-2-30610-1437230989-0_bigVery surprisingly, Tennessee isn’t yet one of the states that has announced it will place armed National Guardsmen at military facilities around the state. Neither has Georgia, where armed civilians have taken it upon themselves to stand guard in front of military facilities.


Times Free Press  Governors in Indiana, Florida, Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma have ordered National Guardsmen to be armed. Tennessee, where five servicemembers were killed Thursday in a brutal attack on military facilities, has yet to take any action, but pressure is building for officials to do more to protect members of the military from acts of terrorism.


Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is allowing the Indiana National Guard to have its personnel be armed at all recruiting offices and state military facilities. Pence issued his executive order Saturday, saying he won’t let Guardsmen be unable to defend themselves and others at facilities in the state. The governor’s order also directs the state adjutant general to review ways to improve security at all Indiana National Guard facilities and recruiting offices.


Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin is also authorizing his state’s adjutant general to arm full-time Oklahoma National Guardsmen at military facilities. Fallin issued an executive order on Friday granting Maj. Gen. Robbie Asher the authority to arm National Guard soldiers and airmen with whatever weaponry he deems necessary to adequately provide for their safety and security.

Fallin spokesman Alex Weintz says without the state authority, National Guardsmen revert to federal policies, which call for them to be unarmed. Fallin issued a separate executive order late Friday that calls for all American and Oklahoma flags on state property be flown at half-staff through Monday in honor of the four Marines killed at a military facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee.


Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says he, too, has authorized the adjutant general of the Texas National Guard to arm Guardsmen at military facilities across Texas. “After the recent shooting in Chattanooga, it has become clear that our military personnel must have the ability to defend themselves against these type of attacks on our own soil,” Abbot said. “Arming the National Guard at these bases will not only serve as a deterrent to anyone wishing to do harm to our service men and women, but will enable them to protect those living and working on the base.”


Florida Gov. Rick Scott is ordering National Guard recruiters at six storefront locations to relocated to their nearest armory. Scott announced the order Saturday. He wants a review of security at the Guard recruitment centers, possibly installing bullet-proof glass at the storefronts or video surveillance equipment.


On Friday, Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson authorized Arkansas National Guard Adjutant General Mark Berry to arm full-time military personnel.


In Louisiana, Gov. Bobby Jindal, another presidential candidate, issued an executive order authorizing the state’s National Guard adjutant general to arm personnel at Guard facilities to provide protection. In his proclamation, Jindal says the adjutant general should “identify and arm certain Guard personnel currently on state active duty … as reasonably necessary to preserve the lives, property, and security of themselves and other persons subject to threat of an attack as occurred this week in Chattanooga, Tennessee.”

On Friday, Gen. Ray Odierno, chief of staff of the Army, said that security at military recruiting and reserve centers would be reviewed but that it was too early to say whether the facilities should have security guards or other increased protection. He told reporters that arming troops in those offices could cause more problems than it might solve.

Severe weather threatens eastern US states

One man described Monday’s tornadoes as “a roaring freight train”

Severe weather is threatening as many as 73 million Americans in the eastern states, after two days of powerful storms killed up to 28 people.

Government forecasters have warned of severe thunderstorms from the Gulf of Mexico up to the Great Lakes.

On Sunday and Monday, tornadoes cut a broad track of death and destruction through the southern US states.

The storms flattened buildings, overturned cars, and left thousands of residents without power.

“Widespread thunderstorms are forecast across the central Gulf Coast region, with several severe [or]supercell storms possible,” the National Weather Service wrote in a morning forecast.

Meanwhile, the search for survivors continues in the southern US states that were smashed by huge tornadoes on Monday and Tuesday.

Early on Tuesday, residents of Louisville, Mississippi crept from their shelters to find their homes demolished by a tornado that punched holes in the roof of a local hospital.

The storm and the tornadoes it spawned killed as many as eight people in Mississippi on Monday, including a woman who died when driving her car during the storm in Verona, south of Tupelo.

‘Start all over’

Giles Ward huddled in a bathroom with his wife and four other relatives as a tornado destroyed his brick house and overturned his son-in-law’s four-wheel-drive parked outside his home in Louisville.

“For about 30 seconds, it was unbelievable,” said Mr Ward, a Republican state senator. “It’s about as awful as anything we’ve gone through.”

The mayor of Tupelo, Jason Shelton, told CNN the damage from the storms was widespread and “devastating”. A 21:00 local time (02:00 GMT) curfew was in place on Monday.

Power went out in much of the city as lines went down and trees were torn up by the storm, the US National Weather Service reported.

In Limestone County, Alabama, two deaths were confirmed by the coroner’s office and four deaths were reported, although unconfirmed, elsewhere in the county.

As many as 16 people were killed on Sunday, including 14 in the towns surrounding Little Rock, Arkansas, with Mayflower and Vilonia bearing the brunt of the damage.

Many homes and businesses, including a new secondary school worth $14m (£8.3m), were left in ruins in Vilonia after the storm.

“There’s just really nothing there anymore. We’re probably going to have to start all over again,” said Vilonia schools chief Frank Mitchell after inspecting the wreckage of the school.

The death toll may yet rise as crews search the wreckage of destroyed buildings.

“We’re trying to make sure everyone is accounted for,” Brandon Morris, spokesman for the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management, told the Associated Press news agency.

Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe said the storm “may be one of the strongest we have seen”.

President Barack Obama, on a trip to the Philippines, offered his deepest condolences to those affected on Sunday and said federal emergency officials would be on the ground to help.

“Your country will be there to help you recover and rebuild, as long as it takes,” he said.

Scientists in Oklahoma are working on implementing new technologies to study tornadoes
