On July 20, 2015, I made a prediction of a potential movie shooting on August 5, 2016.
Yes, that’s a year away. I based those thoughts on future forecasting informed by historical patterning, such as the July 22, 2011, Utøya, Norway massacre occurring the day Captain America was released, and the Aurora, Colorado shootings happening at the premiere showing of The Dark Knight Rises on July 20, 2013. Copycats followed in the wake of those events, in all sorts of variations. It is called the copycat effect, after all.
But then, a mere three days after I wrote that overview on the exact anniversary of the Aurora shooting, a gunman shot up a theater on Wednesday, July 23, 2015. In what even Wikipedia now calls the “2015 Lafayette Shooting,” America was surprised again, and I and others discussed some of its sync links; see, “Fayette Factor Hits Movie Theater.”

We can’t seem to get through a performance without a raging fire or a raging hard-on. ~ Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) – Best Picture of 2014, Academy Awards
BTW, if you missed it, the gunman in the Lafayette horror, John Russell “Rusty” Houser, was born on November 22, 1955. His boyhood 8th birthday was dominated, not by any attention to his youthful entertainment in Columbus, Georgia, but, no doubt, by the news of the day, the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
Update – Shelby Name Game:
In The Rebirth of Pan: Hidden Faces of the American Earth Spirit, Jim Brandon writes, regarding the overall “name game”:
I’m not talking here of such spooky tongue-twisters as H.P. Lovecraft’s Yog-Sothoth or Arthur Machen’s Ishakshar, but of quite ordinary names like Bell, Beall and variants, Crowley, Francis, Grafton, Grubb, Magee/McGee, Mason, McKinney, Montpelier, Parsons, Pike, Shelby, Vernon, Watson/Watt, Williams/Williamson. I have others on file, but these are the ones which I have accumulated the most instances.
You will see buried in that list, “Shelby.”
Shelby, North Carolina
The alleged Charleston, South Carolina killer of nine on June 17, 2015, at the Mother Emanuel Church, Dylann Storm Roof was apprehended on June 18, 2015, after a motorist spotted his black Hyundai Elantra, which displayed a “Confederate States of America” license plate on the front bumper, while driving near Shelby, North Carolina. See more, here.
It was noted at the time of the Charleston killer suspect’s capture the irony in the location of his apprehension with the name of James Shelby Downard, Synchromysticism’s Godfather.
Shelby County, Tennessee
Shelby County, Tennessee was the site of a police officer being killed on Saturday, August 1, 2015.
Then on Monday, August 3, 2015, authorities arrested a convicted bank robber suspected of the killing of the Memphis, Tennessee, police officer Sean Bolton during a weekend traffic stop, theShelby County sheriff said.
Tremaine Wilbourn, 29, had been wanted for first-degree murder since Bolton was shot dead Saturday after Bolton apparently interrupted a drug deal.
Police director Toney Armstrong said Sunday that a passenger shot the 33-year-old Bolton several times after “some type of physical altercation.”
Wilbourn had been free on supervised release by the U.S. Western District Court for a 122-month sentence for bank robbery, Armstrong said.
Camp Shelby, Mississippi
The Mississippi National Guard says soldiers reported shots fired during a training exercise at Camp Shelby, but no service members were hurt.
The Guard said in a news release Tuesday, August 4, 2015, that the Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center is secure and all personnel accounted for. The news release says the shots were fired from a road near Camp Shelby, but not on the military post’s property. Officials say they’re searching for two white males traveling in a two-door, red Ford Ranger. The words “Broken Arrow” are on the front of that vehicle. The shooting happened just before noon Tuesday on Paret Tower Road near Camp Shelby.
Locations in North America named “Shelby,” are most frequently named after Isaac Shelby(December 11, 1750 – July 18, 1826), who was the first and fifth Governor of the U.S. state of Kentucky and a state legislator of Virginia and North Carolina. He was also a soldier in Lord Dunmore’s War, the Revolutionary War, and the War of 1812.
The links and syncs in Shelby’s life to names frequently encountered nowadays are phenomenal.
Let me point to a few examples.
Shelby’s military service began when he served as second-in-command to his father at the Battle of Point Pleasant (October 10, 1774), the only major battle of Lord Dunmore’s War, and what is regarded by most historians as the actual first battle of the Revolutionary War. The site of the battle was Point Pleasant, Mason County, West Virginia, and involved the defeat of Chief Cornstalk. The area is known for the modern Mothman reports, and the location of the alleged “Curse of Cornstalk,” which is tied to disasters and the Mothman trouble in the area.
At the Battle of Point Pleasant, among those killed was Pucksinwah, the father of Tecumseh. Colonel John Field, an ancestor of United States Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, was killed in the battle. The monument to the battle in Point Pleasant is a Masonic obelisk.
Following the surrender of Thickety Fort, Shelby joined a band of partisans under Lieutenant Elijah Clarke. This unit was pursued by British Major Patrick Ferguson. On the morning of August 8, 1780, some of Shelby’s men were gathering peaches from an orchard when they were surprised by some of Ferguson’s men on a reconnaissance mission. Shelby’s men quickly readied their arms and drove back the British patrol. Soon, however, the British were reinforced and the colonists fell back. The pattern continued, with one side being reinforced and gaining an advantage, followed by the other. Shelby’s men were winning the battle when Ferguson’s main force of 1,000 men arrived. Outmanned, they retreated to a nearby hill where British musket fire could not reach them. Now safe, they taunted the British, and Ferguson’s force withdrew from the area. Thus ended the Battle of Cedar Springs.
Shelby’s further involvement with Charleston and Ferguson is documented here, and the name game seems beyond coincidential.
Isaac Shelby, as Kentucky’s Governor, began the tradition of Kentucky Colonels in 1813, which evolved into the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels born in May of 1931, and organization with ties and overlaps with Freemasonry.
In 1820, Shelby was stricken with paralysis in his right arm and leg. He died of a stroke on July 18, 1826, at his home in Lincoln (another power name) County. He was buried on the grounds of his estate, Traveller’s Rest. The state erected a monument over his grave in 1827.

Afro-American Sons and Daughters Hospital
|Location||8th St. and Webster Ave., Yazoo City, Mississippi|
|NRHP Reference #||05001558|
|Added to NRHP||January 24, 2006|
|Designated USMS||April 14, 2005|
The Afro-American Sons and Daughters Hospital, in Yazoo City, Mississippi, also known as the Afro-American Hospital was built in 1928. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.
The Afro-American Sons and Daughters was a fraternal organization in Mississippi and one of the leading black voluntary associations in the state. Organized in 1924, it had 35,000 members by the 1930s. The founder of the group was Thomas J. Huddleston, Sr., a prosperous black entrepreneur and advocate of Booker T. Washington‘s self-help philosophy.
In 1928, the association opened the Afro-American Hospital of Yazoo City, Mississippi to give low-cost care to the members. Dr. Lloyd Tevis Miller served as the facility’s first director. The hospital, which offered both major and minor surgery, was a leading health care supplier for blacks in Mississippi. It had a low death rate compared to other hospitals that served blacks in the South during the period.
The hospital ceased operation in 1966 as a fraternal entity after years of increasingly burdensome regulation, competitive pressure from government and third-party health care alternatives, and the migration of younger dues-paying blacks to the North. The Afro-American Sons and Daughters disbanded during the same period.
Huddleston’s grandson is Mike Espy, a former member of the House of Representatives and U.S. Secretary of Agriculture.
With ISIS on the loose and our borders wide open I thought it would be a good idea to study the topic of terrorist hot spots in America. If terrorist were to strike the US which counties would be the most prone to attack? Rather shocking I discovered through a tipster, that such research does exist and low and behold 65 counties, of a total 3,143 counties, made it on the list.
Is your county a hot bed for terrorist activity? Find out on the video below…

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.
