‘Bullets Of Justice’ Is the Most Insane Thing We’ve Seen Since ‘Range 15’
At the height of World War III, the U.S. government develops a top-secret new weapon it hopes will lead to an easy victory.
The highly classified project, code-named Army Bacon, combines the DNA of humans and pigs. The goal: breeding a hybrid “super soldier” with incredible strength, tenacity, and cunning.
How did this ever get through appropriations?
Naturally, things don’t go as planned: Although the new Frankenstein manimal proves highly effective in battle, the species demonstrates a conspicuous lack of respect for the chain of command. Before long, the pigs, which become known as Muzzles, conquer their would-be overlords and rise to “the top of the food chain.” Their favorite meal? It’s not an MRE, let’s put it that way.
Now it’s up to a rag-tag militia to destroy them.
That’s the premise of “Bullets of Justice,” a new series being produced in Kazakhstan that aims to do for “the other white meat” what the incomparable “Range 15” did for zombies. Speaking of “Range 15,” both films are lavishly decorated in gore and include a cameo from Danny Trejo. Neither one would qualify as wholesome family viewing, unless you’re family is named Manson.
Have a look:
On the production’s Indiegogo page, the filmmakers say they have already shot the entire series and are merely seeking funds for post-production. An accompanying behind-the-scenes video shows how the film was made.
On Feb. 1, the producers had raised less than $1,500 of their $100,000 goal. Hopefully they’ll get there before the real human-pig hybrids — the ones supposedly being developed merely for organ transplants and other peaceful purposes — reach full maturity.
The Department of Veterans Affairs released an alarming report Friday showing that at least 60,000 veterans died by suicide between 2008 and 2017, with little sign that the crisis is abating despite suicide prevention being the VA's top priority.
Although the total population of veterans declined by 18% during that span of years, more than 6,000 veterans died by suicide annually, according to the VA's 2019 National Veteran Suicide Prevention Annual Report.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Sunday that he discussed Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden and his son in a call with Ukraine's president.
Trump's statement to reporters about his July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky came as the Democratic leader of a key congressional panel said the pursuit of Trump's impeachment may be the "only remedy" to the situation.
The USS Eagle 56 was only five miles off the coast of Maine when it exploded.
The World War I-era patrol boat split in half, then slipped beneath the surface of the North Atlantic. The Eagle 56 had been carrying a crew of 62. Rescuers pulled 13 survivors from the water that day. It was April 23, 1945, just two weeks before the surrender of Nazi Germany.
The U.S. Navy classified the disaster as an accident, attributing the sinking to a blast in the boiler room. In 2001, that ruling was changed to reflect the sinking as a deliberate act of war, perpetuated by German submarine U-853, a u-boat belonging to Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine.
Still, despite the Navy's effort to clarify the circumstances surrounding the sinking, the Eagle 56 lingered as a mystery. The ship had sunk relatively close to shore, but efforts to locate the wreck were futile for decades. No one could find the Eagle 56, a small patrol ship that had come so close to making it back home.
Then, a group of friends and amateur divers decided to try to find the wreck in 2014. After years of fruitless dives and intensive research, New England-based Nomad Exploration Team successfully located the Eagle 56 in June 2018.
Business Insider spoke to two crew members — meat truck driver Jeff Goodreau and Massachusetts Department of Corrections officer Donald Ferrara — about their discovery.
These CIA officers were the first US boots on the ground in Afghanistan after 9/11 — and one was 'Marine Todd'
Before the 5th Special Forces Group's Operational Detachment Alpha 595, before 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment's MH-47E Chinooks, and before the Air Force combat controllers, there were a handful of CIA officers and a buttload of cash.
The last time the world saw Marine veteran Austin Tice, he had been taken prisoner by armed men. It was unclear whether his captors were jihadists or allies of Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad who were disguised as Islamic radicals.
Blindfolded and nearly out of breath, Tice spoke in Arabic before breaking into English:"Oh Jesus. Oh Jesus."
That was from a video posted on YouTube on Sept. 26, 2012, several weeks after Tice went missing near Damascus, Syria, while working as a freelance journalist for McClatchy and the Washington Post.
Now that Tice has been held in captivity for more than seven years, reporters who have regular access to President Donald Trump need to start asking him how he is going to bring Tice home.
