Clifford Stone has written an update to his “strange encounter” on July 19.

Here is his post from his facebook page today.

July 25, 2012 | Clifford Stone

Many of you have been concern about me and have expressed this openly. For this, I am grateful and truly feel blessed.

However, you need to know what happened to cause my concern, so here goes:

On Thursday, July 19, 2012 at about 2:00 P.M. a young man came to my door. He appeared to be in his late 20’s or early 30’s. He was about 5’10” or 5’11”. He weighed about 145 to 150 pounds. His hair was a dark blond and he had a beard that came to a kind of go-t. He was dressed in white, torn t-shirt and blue, tattered trousers.

Hours to landlock the tar sands

Hours to landlock the tar sands

Right now, premiers from across Canada are in Halifax to discuss the fate of a dangerous proposal — a mega tar oil pipeline that would slice through the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest and put its fragile ecosystem at risk. But one woman stands in the way — and our massive outcry could get her to delay, and even bury this project for good.

If tens of thousands of us act now, we can persuade her to stay firm, delay the project and even carry it to its deathbed

Pressure on Christy Clark is mounting — as the head of the province where the pipe will end, she has tremendous power to put the brakes on this reckless deal. Call on her to reject the Northern Gateway pipeline by signing the petition below and forward it to everyone. When we reach 50,000 signatures, it’ll be delivered straight to the meeting in Halifax:

2012: What's the 'real' truth?

Two witnesses have come forward to add new information on the Batman murders. One states that a man inside the theater took a cell phone call, then walked to an exit door, and then the shooter appeared from that direction. The other witness states he saw a gas canister come from a direction where the shooter wasn’t. Both witnesses sounded credible.

Now we also have what police are calling an email threat directed at them demanding the release of James Holmes. The email came from the computer of a student who worked with Holmes at the University of Colorado Denver. Cops state they have interviewed this student.

The question is, will these leads come to anything? As I wrote yesterday, law enforcement generally operates on the basis of arresting and prosecuting a prime suspect and ignoring other evidence.

An examination of the Oklahoma City bombing case reveals how egregious…
