Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘The Birds’ Descend On Houston

A real life scene straight out of Alfred Hitchcock’s horror flick ‘The Birds’ appeared on a Houston highway on January 19th.

A large flock of black birds oblivious to humans in speeding cars were spotted smashing into car windshields in Houston, Texas.

The strange phenomenon has been occurring more frequently recently.

Alfred Hitchcock said of his 1963 horror masterpiece ‘The Birds’ that “It could be the most terrifying motion picture I have ever made!”

This could be a warning for Houston to prepare for the worst and board up, or for its residents to get the hell out of town.

There are hundreds of billions of birds in the world and only 7 billion humans.

The descendants of the dinosaurs have been watching human activity from afar and may have decided to

reclaim the earth before it becomes uninhabitable.

Mysterious Universe reports:

 This latest real recreation of a scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds was recorded by Jessica Rios on an unidentified Houston freeway – since Houston is covered with freeways, it could be anywhere. Traffic is backed up on the other side of the freeway – a common occurrence in Houston that could be related to the birds, rush hour or the weather, since the sky appears to be darkened with storm clouds. The birds appear to be black, which means they could be blackbirds, crows, common grackles (very common in Houston) or some other bird made unidentifiable by the lighting.

Huge flocks of birds have been showing up regularly around Houston, with similar events reported in 2016 and 2015. Hannah Bailey, a bird expert at the Houston Zoo, explained after an incident in October 2016 that blackbirds gather in large groups to find food and keep warm and are key to keeping the Houston mosquito population down. However, that doesn’t explain why they were attacking cars last week.

Since stories of bird attacks inevitably reference The Birds, is there a connection here? The movie, which never explains the attacks, was said to be based on Daphne Du Maurier’s short story of the same name (attacks unexplained in it as well) and an incident in 1961 in Monterey, California, huge flocks of seabirds rammed into houses. Autopsies of the birds revealed poison from toxic algae which causes amnesia, disorientation and seizures. A housing boom and rains carried toxic runoff to the ocean where it poisoned the plankton eaten by the birds. Sound like Houston with its housing boom and recent heavy (some would say apocalyptic) rains?

ALERT ALERT

Romney Handed Shock
Defeat By Own State’s GOP

Mitt Romney is back in state politics, this time in Utah instead of Massachusetts. However, conservatives in The Beehive State aren’t exactly warming up to the 2012 Republican standard-bearer quite the way many people expected they would.

After finishing second in votes at the state GOP convention, Romney will now face a primary in his run for the Senate seat being vacated by Orrin Hatch, Fox News reported.

At the convention in West Valley City on Saturday, Romney polled just behind state lawmaker Mike Kennedy.

Kennedy captured 50.18 percent of the delegate vote compared to Romney’s 49.12 percent.

That means the two will face off in a primary on June 26 to determine who will represent the GOP this fall.

Romney, the first Mormon to head a major party ticket, is considered an extremely popular figure in Utah and was widely expected to have an easy path to the upper chamber.

In a hypothetical matchup with Democrat Jenny Wilson, at least one poll showed Romney up by 46 percent. That’s, uh, slightly more than the margin of error.

However, among party loyalists, Romney isn’t exactly viewed with unalloyed fondness.

The 2012 presidential nominee was always known for being decidedly moderate, particularly on issues of immigration and global trade. There was also the fact that he ran a campaign so bumbling that it almost made Michael Dukakis look good.

And then there was Romney’s war of words with Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, which likely led many to perceive he secretly wished Hillary Clinton would take the Oval Office.

Trump would later consider Romney as a secretary of state pick, although how serious the president-elect was about appointing him is something we’ll likely never know.

While your average Utah Republican is unlikely to let these slights affect their vote, hardcore party activists probably don’t want another RINO who isn’t exactly known for his rapport with the president in the upper chamber of Congress, no matter how famous he may be.

For his part, Romney tried to put a good spin on the humiliation.

“I’m delighted with the outcome. Did very, very well,” he told KSTU. “On to a good, important primary ahead. This is terrific for the people of Utah.”

Dude, you just lost to a guy nobody has ever heard of. However, Kennedy was happy with the results, and unlike Romney, he had good reason to be.

“I’m a candidate with a compelling life story and a unique set of life circumstances I’d like to use to serve the people of Utah,” Kennedy said.

I have no idea what that story or those circumstances are, but I think the key point here is that he’s not Mitt Romney. If he wants to win, that’s pretty much what he should be focusing on. I can see the billboards now. “Mike Kennedy: Not Mitt Romney.” “Mike Kennedy: He didn’t borrow Ward Cleaver’s haircut.” “Mike Kennedy: Because Utah deserves a senator whose favorite food isn’t buttered noodles.”

Utah’s electorate tends to be less conservative than convention-goers, so it’s unlikely that Romney won’t be the GOP nominee for Senate. However, that’s not a 100 percent certainty — and it wouldn’t be the first time he’s lost to a Kennedy.

What do you think?
