American Pyramids? Human Sacrifice? What?!
Mystery of the massive fire which ravaged St Louis – America’s most prosperous ancient city
(which had a taste for HUMAN SACRIFICE)
SOURCE – A mysterious fire which destroyed North America’s greatest ancient civilization has led to fascinating discoveries about social tensions, violent tendencies and religious practices within the society.
The city of Cahokia, whose secrets lie underneath where St Louis, Missouri now stands, was ruined by a huge blaze around the year 1170 CE.
Following the disaster, the Native American city changed dramatically -defense walls were built, buildings fortified and a sun symbol incorporated into designs.
The significant changes have led to one nagging historical mystery – just how did the fire start?

Homes evacuated in Conway, Missouri during Saturday morning Flash Flood Emergency
CONWAY, Mo. — High water forced several families out of bed early Saturday morning in the community of Conway, Missouri. The National Weather Service had issued a Flash Flood Emergency.
A mobile home park was evacuated near J and CC Highways. Authorities had to rescue seven people. No one was injured. The flooding damaged siding on a number of the homes and residents were moving out soaked furniture and belongings.
The flooding also forced MoDot to close part of I-44 for a few hours at mile marker 112. It was reported 3 feet of water was over the interstate there. Lanes reopened shortly before 7:00 a.m.
Heavy Rains Unleash Deadly Midwest Flooding
ST. LOUIS — Torrential rains continued across the nation’s midsection on Thursday, causing flash flooding that killed a woman and a child, damaged homes and forced multiple water rescues.
Up to 10 inches of rain pounded southern Missouri overnight. A woman died near Jane, Mo., in the far southwestern corner of the state where creek water washed over a highway, sweeping away her car.
“Early this morning it just unleashed,” said Greg Sweeten, emergency management director in McDonald County, Mo.
Bus carrying deaf children overturns in Missouri
DANVILLE, Mo. — A charter bus carrying students from the Missouri School for the Deaf overturned along an interstate in eastern Missouri on Friday, sending 15 children and three adults to a hospital but causing no life-threatening injuries, authorities said.
The accident happened around 1:30 p.m. as the eastbound bus was exiting Interstate 70 near Danville, about 75 miles west of St. Louis.
The children, who were between ages 10 and 18, were treated in the emergency room at University Hospital in Columbia, along with the bus driver and two chaperones, hospitals spokeswoman Mary Jenkins said. She said the adults’ injuries also appeared not to be life-threatening.
When Will It Stop? Flooding Threat Continues from Kentucky to New York
It seems like we’ve been talking about rain for weeks. First the Southeast, now the Ohio Valley and parts of the Northeast are dealing with the prospect of heavy rain and ensuing flash flooding.
In the last seven days a large swath of Kentucky and Ohio have received in excess of 5″ of rain and in one part of Northwest Ohio more than 8″.
All this rain has saturated the ground and swelled waterways throughout the region.
Unfortunately, in the short term, the wet trend doesn’t look to be slowing, potentially adding another 1-2″ of rain through Friday.
That additional rain could create a recipe for localized flash flooding in areas that have already been doused.
Federal nullification efforts mounting in states
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Imagine the scenario: A federal agent attempts to arrest someone for illegally selling a machine gun. Instead, the federal agent is arrested — charged in a state court with the crime of enforcing federal gun laws.
Farfetched? Not as much as you might think.
The scenario would become conceivable if legislation passed by Missouri’s Republican-led Legislature is signed into law by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon.
