Vegas Bombshell: Video Shows 17 Ambulances Pulling Bodies Out of HOOTERS

On the night of October 1, Youtuber Benjamin Franks and his friend had just grabbed some tacos and were heading back to their hotel room at the MGM when they noticed a separate disturbance at the corner of Las Vegas Blvd and Tropicana Ave.

Fifteen-minutes later, from the leisure of his hotel room, Franks managed to capture bombshell video footage which shows a total of 17 ambulances removing human bodies from Hooters, contradicting the official story told by Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo.

“They are just pulling so many bodies out of that Hooters,” a man’s voice can be heard saying at the 24-second mark. “I don’t know if people are dead — I don’t know if people are just injured — they just keep pullin’ them out though […] something definitely happened at Hooters though.”

“It must have happened at Hooters dude because they are all showing up there,” he said. “It looks like most of them are at Hooters.”

Hooters Casino and Hotel is located at 115 E. Tropicana Ave. which is just northeast of the venue where the Route 91 Music Festival was being hosted.

The police and FBI are lyingFranks’s footage is absolute proof that the Los Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and the FBI are lying to the general public and have not been forthcoming about all of the events that occurred that night.

The Youtuber wrote in his Oct. 21 post (Paragrah contains grammer issues): “Me and my buddy went to vegas for two days. This was our first day there and had been out on the strip earlier but drove to circus circus later on. We had just gotten tacos when we finally reached tropicana and las vegas blvd is when we saw everyone running and all the police. We were lucky to get to the mgm parking garage and into our room about 15 minutes later and thats when this video starts. WE HAD NO IDEA WHAT WAS GOING ON.”

“Bodies just everywhere”

The following video was captured inside Hooters after the shooting and shows what appears to be human bodies covered with towels and sheets. The man filming can be heard saying that Hooters is “locked-down” and that there are “bodies just everywhere.”

In the video, it even looks as if blood can be seen on at least one. However, the status of the people is unknown.

The lone ranger

An Oct. 14 Intellihub report documents how an eyewitness named Rick explained on a podcast that one of his girlfriend’s friends (who was in his group of five that night) had witnessed a ‘solo SWAT guy’ enter the back door of Hooters, the same building that Rick said he witnessed people fleeing from!

A few moments later (after the gunfire in the venue subsided), Rick met back up with all five members of his group near a sign that they used for a landmark which was located between Hooters and Motel 6 and that’s when Rick said that he saw a “frantic stampede” of people fleeing Hooters.

“[…] there was a bunch of people trying to get the hell away from Hooters so we did too,” he explained. “So we started running again.”

Rick also pointed out that at one point one of his group members had witnessed “SWAT” guy enter Hooters through the back which he thought was suspicious. The scene was fluid and rapidly changing. Nobody could be trusted.

At one point, the group was told that a shooter had stolen a police car which elevated concern.

Chaos outside Hooters captured on video

A video posted to the “Ronson ¡n s¡n California” YouTube channel shows the moment people fled from Hooters in a panic (this is not a fantasy, it’s real folks).

The publisher explains in the video’s description box that “the place [Route 91] was like a war zone” and mentions that he went back to Hooter’s after running around for “30-minutes” from “gunmen.”

“So we ran back to hooters,” the description explains. ‘Right when we got in the lobby someone yelled run! Everybody ran, hid, barricaded, and dived over bars.’

The blackjack dealer

This matches up with what Hooters Hotel and Casino blackjack dealer Schanda Bennett told NPR the day after the shooting. Bennett said she heard shots “outside” of Hooters and confirmed dead bodies were, in fact, laying on the ground in front of Hooters. However, Bennett theorizes that the people who dropped dead in front of Hooters did so after running from the venue even though eyewitness reports suggest gunfire came from within the proximity of Hooters, possibly out front. After all, why were people fleeing Hooters?

“There were people – there were bodies in the front of the casino that was just laying there.,” she said. “People that ran from the venue – they just died right there.”

Blood stains on the carpet

The next video shows blood stains on the carpet in Hooters lobby, just outside of the elevator shaft as people panic (a lot of blood at 0:23 seconds).

“I know I’m all fun and games but this shit ain’t fuckin’ games,” the man filming explained while he briskly searched for an emergency exit to evacuate Hooters. “When you hear fuckin’ shots from a high-output riffle coming from out of nowhere in the middle of a concert and people are taking cover […]”

The man was walking through Hooters after he had left the venue where he heard gunfire and ‘saw people go down.’

‘Shots were coming from Hooters, MGM area’

Another Intellihub report which I authored Oct. 16 explains how an eyewitness named Geo Rios said that he heard shots coming from Hooters just after he and his girlfriend had jumped the north fence at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival. This confirms without a shadow of a doubt that shots were, in fact, fired at Hooters.

“We ran straight to the back of the venue and there was like a ten-foot fence,” Rios explained.

That’s when Rios and his girlfriend climbed up and over the fence using a piece of an “orange gate” as a makeshift ladder. Rios said that they couldn’t climb the fence without the makeshift ladder because the fence was covered with a “green material” that wouldn’t allow you to grab it.

‘There were two guys that were standing on the other side of the fence that were catching everybody,’ he said. “One of them caught my girlfriend.”

“Everyone who lived is a hero, from that event, and I want to make that clear. […] There was a lot of beautiful things going on. A lot of people taking care of each other,” he explained.

Once the couple was over the fence Rios said that he could hear ‘shots coming from Hooters, the MGM area’ in addition to the shots coming from Mandalay Bay. This is the very same area other eyewitnesses also heard shots being fired!

Duck and run

Additionally, another man was hiding under his car in the Hooters parking lot when the chaos erupted.

Evanescene releases video for first single titled ‘Imperfection’

Evanescence is back and packing a big emotional punch with the release of their latest single “Imperfection.” The song is the band’s first single off their upcoming album Synthesis and carries an important message. The lyrics of “Imperfection” emphasize the importance of endurance and never giving up, to always keep fighting despite life’s hardships. In the video, a smoky swirl of color and geometric shapes whirl through the screen as a young girl, representing a young Amy Lee, tries to find her way through the chaos.

In a press release, vocalist Amy Lee said, The idea for the ‘Imperfection’ video was about bringing that art to life, and capturing the emotion of the lyrics…The video is meant to give visual to feeling, an internal picture of processing loss, and life, speaking from an adult’s perspective to my past self.”

“Imperfection” is one of two new Evanescence songs on Synthesis, with the other being a “Hi-Lo.” The album is a reimagining of classic Evanescence songs from across the band’s catalog, showcasing the dramatic and operatic qualities of Lee’s voice backed by a full orchestra. In addition to this new theatrical approach, fans will find that, as in the case of “Imperfection,” the band experimented with different electronic beats as well.This will be the band’s fourth studio album and first in six years since their 2011 self-titled release.

Synthesis is set for release November 10 and Evanescence is delivering all the beautiful drama to directly to audiences. The Synthesis Live tour is underway and showcases the band with a 28-piece orchestra and electronic programming to deliver a one-of-a-kind experience for fans.

Keep up with all things Evanescence on AXS!

War Powers Act Challenge on Yemen Postponed to November 2

House Leadership Fails to Stop Legal Challenge to Yemen War

Jason Ditz Posted onOctober 12, 2017

The House leadership’s attempts to undermine the bipartisan House Concurrent Resolution 81, which would end US involvement in the Saudi War in Yemen, is failing. On Wednesday, the House unanimously agreed to delay the vote on the resolution to November 2.

The concurrent resolution directs the president to end all military participation in the Saudi war in Yemen immediately, pointing out that Congress never authorized such an operation. Congress has sole discretion to make such a determination, and in over two years of war in Yemen, there’s never been such a vote.

While a lot of America’s ongoing wars are at present not authorized under the War Powers Act, Yemen is a particularly glaring one, because there isn’t even a roundabout argument to be made to try to connect this to the vague AUMF on fighting al-Qaeda. Indeed, in fighting against the Shi’ite Houthis in Yemen, the Saudi-led war has greatly enhanced al-Qaeda’s power in the country.

Indications are that support in the House for this resolution is growing, unsurprising given the House’s recent votes on selling arms to the Saudis have been increasingly close. The delay will give the vote’s supporters more time to shore up support.

Those wishing to call their representatives to express support for H. Con. Res. 81 can find contact information here. Under the War Powers Act, any one representative can bring a challenge like this one, so the prospects of the House leadership actually preventing the vote are virtually nil. This means getting the word out about support for the bill is particularly important.

Blaming Russia for the Internet ‘Sewer’

October 18, 2017

Exclusive: As the Russia-gate hysteria spirals down from the implausible to the absurd, almost every bad thing is blamed on the Russians, even how they turned the previously pristine Internet into a “sewer,” reports Robert Parry.

By Robert Parry

With the U.S. government offering tens of millions of dollars to combat Russian “propaganda and disinformation,” it’s perhaps not surprising that we see “researchers” such as Jonathan Albright of the Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia University making the absurd accusation that the Russians have “basically turned [the Internet] into a sewer.”

I’ve been operating on the Internet since 1995 and I can assure you that the Internet has always been “a sewer” — in that it has been home to crazy conspiracy theories, ugly personal insults, click-bait tabloid “news,” and pretty much every vile prejudice you can think of. Whatever some Russians may or may not have done in buying $100,000 in ads on Facebook (compared to its $27 billion in annual revenue) or opening 201 Twitter accounts (out of Twitter’s 328 million monthly users), the Russians are not responsible for the sewage coursing through the Internet.

Americans, Europeans, Asians, Africans and pretty much every other segment of the world’s population didn’t need Russian help to turn the Internet into an informational “sewer.” But, of course, fairness and proportionality have no place in today’s Russia-gate frenzy.

After all, your “non-governmental organization” or your scholarly “think tank” is not likely to get a piece of the $160 million that the U.S. government authorized last December to counter primarily Russian “propaganda and disinformation” if you explain that the Russians are at most responsible for a tiny trickle of “sewage” compared to the vast rivers of “sewage” coming from many other sources.

If you put the Russia-gate controversy in context, you also are not likely to have your “research” cited by The Washington Post as Albright did on Thursday because he supposedly found some links at the home-décor/fashion site Pinterest to a few articles that derived from a few of the 470 Facebook accounts and pages that Facebook suspects of having a link to Russia and shut them down. (To put that 470 number into perspective, Facebook has about two billion monthly users.)

Albright’s full quote about the Russians allegedly exploiting various social media platforms on the Internet was: “They’ve gone to every possible medium and basically turned it into a sewer.”

But let’s look at the facts. According to Facebook, the suspected “Russian-linked” accounts purchased $100,000 in ads from 2015 to 2017 (compared to Facebook’s annual revenue of about $27 billion), with only 44 percent of those ads appearing before the 2016 election and many having little or nothing to do with politics, which is curious if the Kremlin’s goal was to help elect Donald Trump and defeat Hillary Clinton.

Even former Clinton political strategist Mark Penn has acknowledged the absurdity of thinking that such piddling amounts could have any impact on a $2.4 billion presidential campaign, plus all the billions of dollars worth of free-media attention to the conventions, debates, etc. Based on what’s known about the Facebook ads, Penn calculated that “the actual electioneering [in battleground states] amounts to about $6,500.”

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed on Monday, Penn added, “I have 40 years of experience in politics, and this Russian ad buy mostly after the election anyway, simply does not add up to a carefully targeted campaign to move voters. It takes tens of millions of dollars to deliver meaningful messages to the contested portion of the electorate.”

Puppies and Pokemon

And, then there is the curious content. According to The New York Times, one of these “Russian-linked” Facebook groups was dedicated to photos of “adorable puppies.” Of course, the Times tried hard to detect some sinister motive behind the “puppies” page.

Similarly, CNN went wild over its own “discovery” that one of the “Russian-linked” pages offered Amazon gift cards to people who found “Pokémon Go” sites near scenes where police shot unarmed black men — if you would name the Pokémon after the victims.

“It’s unclear what the people behind the contest hoped to accomplish, though it may have been to remind people living near places where these incidents had taken place of what had happened and to upset or anger them,” CNN mused, adding:

“CNN has not found any evidence that any Pokémon Go users attempted to enter the contest, or whether any of the Amazon Gift Cards that were promised were ever awarded — or, indeed, whether the people who designed the contest ever had any intention of awarding the prizes.”

VIDEO: Multiple Residents Witness UFO Over Queensland, Australia

Next Story

Undeniably, UFO’s and ET’s have taken many minds by storm, and for good reason! This is a subject with the power to change our world as we know it in SO many ways and humanity is becoming increasingly more ready to explore this subject.

So what do UFO sightings do for this subject of conversation? They provide just that, a conversation. A chance to expand our minds and consciousness further as we imagine beyond our everyday accepted reality. As we explore the potential of what these objects and the intelligence that may control them means, we expand the way we think of ourselves and our world, effectively shifting our consciousness.

Given the mass consciousness shift we’re experiencing on this planet right now, this fits right in.

There have been a ton of new sightings over the past couple years, you can see them here, but this one is a bit older. We’re going to look at it as it’s quite fascinating.

The UFO Sighting

It was a regular night in Queensland Australia when witness and filmer Jack Purcell’s mother pointed out the lights in the sky to him.

“We were all just sitting out the front and my mum pointed to the sky and said ‘look at that colourful plane flying over’,” Purcell said.

“Then it came to a sudden stop and was just hovering there. So I ran inside and grabbed my video camera.”

Purcell stated that when when the police tried to ‘call it in’ with a police helicopter the unidentified object would turn its lights off and disappear.

“It was really strange. I was quite skeptical of these things but it just blew my mind.”

This is what Jack wrote about what he saw as he posted his video to YouTube: “Ok so I’m pretty sure I’ve captured a UFO on camera. Early last night we saw flashing lights in the sky and I ran and got my camera to record it. The cops came straight away and told everyone that they had no idea what it was and they were going to “call it in”. When I ran inside to get my phone, everyone said that they saw another huge light twice it’s size zoom across the sky and disappear. At the end of this video, I slowed the footage down and stabilized it and you can clearly see that it’s a giant triangle with flashing lights. after I finished recording, it zipped down really quickly and vanished. so weird. sorry about the shaky footage, it was filmed on my handheld camera.”


This video was of course met with skepticism and most people thought it was a drone. This was the first thing I began to research when writing this as well. Being a Phantom drone owner, I know what they look like, how they function and the color and pattern of the flash on the lights. I knew this couldn’t be stock settings as a stock drone does not look like that in the sky at all. The video I did find of aftermarket lights for Phantom’s still doesn’t come close to resembling this pattern. So to me, the drone explanation doesn’t work yet.

Jack states in response to people asking if this was a radio controlled device: “For those saying that it could be an RC craft or ‘quad-copter’, keep in mind that this thing was at least four times the size of the police helicopters that flew by. It’s also the shape of a giant triangle, as you can easily see in 720p if you pause directly on 4:15. This thing was also flying with the point of the triangle facing behind it, which is extremely odd in terms of aerodynamics. If somebody can make a remote controlled object that big, and fly it around like this, then make it vanish like it did, i would like to see the video.”

This leads to one of the challenges with deducing truth from any video like this. Often times seeing the footage second hand, i.e. not being there, doesn’t allow us to know things like size, height, what it looked like to the naked eye. Jack is stating what he saw, but ‘expert commenters’ online believe they know the truth based on what they see second hand. Typically this is where intelligent conversations around what these things might actually be ends. But I hope to change that by inspiring us to truly think critically about this versus just trying to brush things off with a cheap explanation.

We must realize that the evidence for UFO’s and ET’s goes so much further beyond YouTube and Facebook. The denial culture is truly one we must begin to look at to realize what is actually happening out there. A great place to start is the groundbreaking documentary called Unacknowledged which you can find on Netflix.

Gold Coast Police admitted they were notified about the flying object but believed it was likely a radio controlled device. A spokesman from the department added : “If it was anything larger it would have been picked up by the air control radars.”

Or would it have? That’s assuming our detection technologies would undeniably pick up the flying object.

If you are interested in exploring this subject seriously and further, here is a great place to start.

Taxpayers Pay Parents $500K After Video Shows Cops Stomp, Taser, Suffocate Their Son to Death


Reno, NV — Surveillance footage, released to the Reno Gazette-Journal through a public records request, shows the terrifying final moments of 35-year-old Justin Thompson, a man in the midst of a mental breakdown. For 30 minutes, nearly a dozen Washoe County Sheriff’s deputies took turns kicking, tasering, insulting, and crushing the wind from Thompson — who noted multiple times that he could not breathe through the spit mask over his head. After seeing the video, Thompson’s parents sued the county for the wrongful death of their son.

The lawsuit was filed in federal court in June and asked the county to pay wrongful death damages, the cost of Thompson’s funeral, and other damages.

It was announced this week that Thompson’s parents have agreed to settle their wrongful death lawsuit for $500,000.

Peter Goldstein, the lawyer representing Thompson’s parents, claimed in the lawsuit that Thompson was no danger because he had been medicated at the hospital, making him docile. Goldstein also said deputies ignored Thompson’s repeated warnings that he could not breathe.

“As seen in the video, the staff and deputies of the jail kicked, kneeled upon, burked and applied torturous arm bar holds, and refused plaintiff’s pleas for help,” he wrote. “When decedent stated he could not breathe, they did not provide any help or even begin to appreciate the level of danger and harm decedent was experiencing.”

The lawsuit noted the severe injuries incurred by Thompson, including a broken rib, and cuts and bruises all over his body.


The Washoe County Medical Examiner has since listed Thompson’s cause of death as a homicide — due to complications of physical restraint.

As TFTP previously reported, the tragic incident began to unfold on August 3, 2016, when Thompson was arrested. His family and girlfriend reported that Thompson is bipolar and had been off his medication for some time. During the bipolar episode, Thompson, who has no previous criminal record, was arrested on charges of domestic battery.

The clearly distressed man exhibited severe signs of mental distress and was unable to be booked, so he was placed in a holding cell. For hours after being arrested, Thompson jammed his fingers into his ears. He paced, clutched his head and stuffed toilet paper into his ears. He spent hours on the floor curled up in the fetal position before peeling off his scabby skin to use his own blood to draw on the floor, walls, and camera.

Heavily armored deputies in riot gear then raided Thompson’s cell to drag him out.

Instead of admitting him for psychiatric treatment, Thompson was brought to the hospital and given an injection of Haldol, a powerful antipsychotic drug, and Benadryl, before being sent back to jail.

When bringing him back to jail, Thompson appeared docile until a deputy grabs his face while trying to take a mugshot and shoves it to the side. Thompson, whose arms were chained to his waist, became agitated, slipped out onto the floor and a struggle began.

“How’s this? Does this feel good,” a deputy says as Thompson appears to lie still, his wrists still chained to his belly.

In their attempt to get the mentally ill man in the stretcher to bring him to the hospital, more than a half-dozen deputies took turns kneeling on, kicking, tasering, and insulting him. Yet for 30 minutes, the swarm of officers was unable to subdue the single man.

When Thompson complains that he can’t breathe, a deputy can be heard answering back, “No, you’re not being compliant, Justin. We could’ve just rolled you through the process but you’re being a d**k about the whole thing.”

As the deputies continue to increase pressure on him, both mentally and physically, Thompson becomes more distressed.

“So now we are to this level and you’re going to get carried in a little wrap because you can’t maintain enough thought to go through this process like a man,” the deputy says. “If you hurt my staff, you are going to catch a felony. Understand? We are not going to get injured by you. And if you lash out, I am going to make sure that you remember it.” 

For the next 25 minutes, the video shows deputies slowly squeeze the air from Thompson’s lungs until he finally stopped breathing.

Thompson was brought to the hospital where he was put on life support with no brain activity. For five days, no one even told his family where he was.

When Karen Thompson, Justin’s mother called the jail she signed up for automatic text notifications on inmates. On August 7, she received a message saying her son had been released.

They looked for Thompson for over two days.

“I’m frantically calling people,” she said. “I called his girlfriend. She had got the note, too, but hadn’t heard from him. So, we’re calling what friends we had numbers for. I was preparing to drive up there and drive the streets to look for him. We didn’t know what had happened to him.”

But Thompson was not free, he was in a hospital bed — brain dead.

“On Tuesday afternoon — the 9th of August — I have a sheriff’s officer here in Kern County that comes in and tells me that my son had passed away and told me he had died of a massive heart attack,” Karen Thompson said.

Thompson described her son as a caring man who she has never seen act like the person in the surveillance footage.

“Everybody always talked about how he helped them,” she said. “He was always caring for other people.”

As the Reno Gazette-Journal reported, Sheriff Chuck Allen even took the unusual step of criticizing the deputies’ handling of the struggle before the internal investigation was complete, after he reviewed the videos obtained by the Reno Gazette-Journal through a public records request.

“I believe anyone who watches this video will understand why I was concerned about the handling of this incident and why I immediately called for an outside investigation,” he said in a written statement.

“I further, and firmly, believe that some of the actions shown do not reflect the standards of the men and women who work for the Sheriff’s Office. Nor are they in keeping with my often-expressed expectation that employees from this office will always treat the public we serve with fairness, equality and respect.”

Unlike previous in-custody restraint deaths caught on camera at the jail, Thompson was not high on methamphetamine. His stress was induced by deputies, not drugs, and the medical examiner agrees.

This lawsuit was the only means of justice Justin Thompson’s parents had and now they will finally have closure. Sadly, however, it will be the taxpayers held liable and not the cops.

As RGJ reports, Sparks police concluded an independent investigation into Thompson’s death in February and found no criminal wrongdoing by the sheriff’s office.

Below is that horrifying video.

This is two hours of footage from the Washoe Co. Jail showing the entire struggle that led to Justin Thompson’s death. The struggle begins at timestamp 7:44. The struggle intensifies at 24:53. Deputies start life-saving efforts at 41:30. At the 1:28:30 mark, you can see the attack from a more damning angle.

Rampaging wild boar sent to hog heaven after invading German bank (VIDEO)

READ MORE: Sweden’s wild boars have ‘extremely high’ radiation levels 31 years after Chernobyl

The animal was one of two boars that prompted an emergency response in the Schleswig-Holstein town on Friday morning, with police warning residents that two “aggressive” wild hogs were marauding through the streets.

CCTV footage reveals how one of the wild boars entered through the double doors of a downtown optician’s store, before chasing employees inside.

The 70 kilogram boar was eventually corralled between the entrance of the neighboring Sparkasse bank and two cop cars and gunned down. The second boar escaped to the outskirts of town.

According to the Holstein police, four people sustained injuries inside the bank, while “substantial damage” was done to the store’s interior. One man is believed to have lost the tip of a finger during the bizarre incident.

A post shared by Susanne (@su_sonne_) on Oct 20, 2017 at 10:57am PDT

“The boar ran to a bank and attacked a passerby on [its] way there,” a police statement read. “In the rooms of the saving banks, an employee suffered considerable injuries due to an attack. A total of four adults were taken to the Heider hospital.”

Grisly images from the scene reveal that the rampaging boar was taken down by a rifle fitted with a telescopic sight.

Local mayor Ulf Stecher said a “prudent” decision was made to shoot the boar “without risk to others.”

“The situation was really dangerous. In fact, it is inconceivable that four people have been injured in this way. I hope that all four will be better soon.”

“The police, rescue and fire brigade forces have also done a very good job,” he added.

Couple transform van into a traveling home, using IKEA & small bag of tools (Video)

It’s amazing to see the creative variety that is coming out of small spaces, whether it’s designing for tiny houses on wheels, cabins, as well as bus and van conversions. The range of clever ideas to maximize these spaces and make them feel like well-designed homes is impressive.

Nomadic couple Richard and Sophie are yet another two members of a growing global “van life” trend. Originally from New Zealand (and France it sounds), the two are now travelling through North America in a Dodge Sprinter van they converted themselves with a tight budget, using a bag of tools, some IKEA items, as well as some unexpected solutions to expensive problems. Watch the tour of their simple but well-made home, via Tiny Home Tours:

The van is pretty roomy, thanks to its simple but functional configuration. As soon as you come in, you face the kitchen counter, which has a propane stovetop, and an inexpensive sink made out of a metal salad bowl with a drain cut through. The counter is made out of bamboo (bought from IKEA), and there is a stainless steel sheet for the backsplash.

All the cabinets and soft-close drawers are also from IKEA. There is also a small portable refrigerator, which can be removed for more space. Above the counter is a shelf with a rail to prevent things from sliding out; the couple have used soft, fabric containers to store stuff, so that when driving, they don’t rattle around. The 12-volt LED lights, which connect straight to battery, are from — wait for it — IKEA.

Under the sink are two 4-gallon tanks, one for freshwater and one for greywater. Though it’s not a lot of water storage, these were chosen because their size makes them easy to refill almost anywhere — gas stations, drinking fountains and so on.

Now here’s the couple’s clever solution to a common problem: RV water pumps are rather large. Unfortunately, they left the water pump installation to the end, when they had already made their cabinets and fitted in their tanks. Their solution: to use a water pump for marine applications, which they bought from a boat shop, and which is meant to be immersed in water. The marine water pump apparently has a changeable filter, is super-compact and works just as well as the more costly RV version.

The van is fully insulated with spray foam, and the couple got it professionally done, as you get a higher-quality product and job when it’s done professionally. The result is that the interior temperature is well-regulated, it’s more acoustically buffered and there’s less condensation and humidity inside. More light is brought in using a custom-cut skylight that can sealed off with a mosquito netting or foam, depending on the situation.

The couch is where the couple eat their meals and can potentially even be made into a guest bed, if the portable fridge is removed. The dining table is actually attached to the van’s sliding door; once the door is closed, you can unlatch it and unfold it down for eating or working on. A clever idea that eliminates the “removable leg” of RV dining tables or having to store a bulky folding table.

Under the couch are three IKEA plastic bins, which hold clothing and books and which can easily slide out. To save money, the couple decided to go with simple bins rather than installing drawers on rails. Another advantage is that if you’re using the van as a weekender kind of deal, you can easily take the bins out and carry them into your house.

The van’s front can be sequestered off using thick, Velcro-ed fabric panels, from IKEA. Even with the lights on inside, it’s completely not apparent from the outside that there are people living inside.

The rear of the van is the “garage” where extra full water tanks and more outdoor gear are stored under the bed platform, using more plastic bins.

There are lots of smart design ideas here, using items that could be easily purchased off the shelf. Richard and Sophie are continuing their travels around North America, and are doing vehicle conversions for others; to reach them, you can email them at customstealthcampervans [at]

Trump border wall prototypes go up in California (VIDEO)

Six completed wall options, and another under construction, were captured in this aerial footage from a site near Otay Mesa Port of Entry in San Diego on Thursday.

The prototypes, erected a short distance from Tijuana, Mexico, are samples of proposed cement, metal and anti-climbing formats for the border barrier, and are reportedly costing the US government $500,000 each.

Prototype guidelines said the wall must be “physically imposing in height.” The US government’s nominal concept is for a 30ft high wall, capable of withstanding at least one hour of punishment from a sledge hammer, pickaxe, torch, chisel or battery-operated tools. It should also prevent the use of climbing aids and be “aesthetically pleasing” when viewed from the US side.

Footage of the test walls is released just two weeks after a house panel approved legislation to provide a total of $15 billion for construction of the controversial wall and bolster security at ports of entry into the US.

The Border Security for America Act allocates $10 billion for construction of the wall, $5 billion to improve ports of entry, and includes the addition of 5,000 Border Patrol agents and 5,000 Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) officers.

In addition, the bill authorizes the federal government to reimburse states up to $35 million to use the National Guard in support of border security and prohibits federal agents from restricting CBP activities on federal land within 100 miles of the border.

DNA Test Proves Women Were Fearsome Viking Warriors [Video]

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Forget everything you think you know about the badass warriors known as the Vikings. According to new findings unearthed in a Viking Age grave in Sweden, dating to the 10th century, some of the first Viking warriors were women.

Researchers at Stockholm and Uppsala Universities published their findings based on the remains of a decorate female warrior in the American Journal of Anthropology. A DNA analysis of the skeleton confirmed that the individual was a woman, approximately thirty-years-old or slightly older, who stood approximately 5’ 6”.

History reports that several weapons were buried with the woman, including a sword, armor-piercing arrows, a battle knife, a spear, an axe and two shields. Additionally, two horses and a full set of game pieces and a gaming board were found alongside the grave. The weapons, specifically, suggest that the person was a high-ranking combatant who was knowledgeable about war strategies and tactics.

The finding matches Scandinavian lore and poetry from the Middle Ages about fierce female warriors. Until now, however, there has been little evidence to support the stories. Finally, women have reclaimed their status as fearsome, esteemed leaders.  Said Professor Mattias Jakobsson  in a report by Uppsala University: “This is the first formal and genetic confirmation of a female Viking warrior.”
