Hyatt Regency Tamaya resort in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico has gone into lock down mode and access has been completely restricted for at least one mile outside of the resort

Conventions and large gatherings are not unusual. What is unusual, according to KOB 4, is the high level of secrecy surrounding the event. Something is going on at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya that no one wants to talk about. Everyone is hush-hush. KOB Eyewitness News 4 has been told the entire place has been sold out the last three nights.

When KOB sent one of our photographers out tonight, he was stopped at a roadblock about a mile from the high-end resort on Santa Ana Pueblo. A Tamaya insider tells KOB the entire place was rented out by the Koch brothers. KOB was also told former vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan was at Tamaya.

While there's nothing wrong with renting out an entire resort, especially if you can pay for it, the level of secrecy in this case is quite unusual. KOB ran a check on the tail number of a jet seen parked at Cutter Aviation and it came back as being registered to Koch Leasing.


'No Muslim' signs at Texas shopping center

The posters lined the street near the El Farouq Mosque on Sauer Conrad Drive at Westview.

In black letters, the signs read, "No Muslim parking in the Westview Shopping Center. Your car will be towed."

Many Muslims heading to worship services were offended.

"I feel sorry for the person who wrote it," said Ahmed Hassan. "This is what comes to mind because obviously he has a lot of hate."

"I'm very shocked because we do live in a society that's supposed to be very accepting and this is what we all preach," said Yara Aboshady. "That we all have the freedom of religion."

The mosque sits across the street from the shopping center. Store employees did not want to go on camera, but admit they get angry when mosque members park in their lot, taking up spots meant for customers.

With the Muslim month-long fast for the holy month of Ramadan ending, and a crowd expected at the mosque, the signs anonymously appeared. No shopping center employees would take credit. One worker said the shopping center owner, Steve Kwon, posted the signs.

So Local 2 took the mosque members' concerns to Kwon.

"I did not put up the signs," said Kwon.

Aboshady wondered about the sign writer's true motive.

"It could be no parking for the sake of patrons that come in," Aboshady said. "Or it really could be a prejudice and just a mean thing to say."

She and others still find the signs insensitive and offensive.

"It's really offensive and it's hateful," said Hassan.

The owner says they will be calling a tow company to try to get all of the cars that shouldn't be parked here out. And he says he'll be checking the property to make there are no more of the offending parking signs.

Police mock disabled veteran, issue citation, and kick him off the boardwalk for having a service dog

  • A disabled U.S. Army veteran, who served our country for 19 years, says he was kicked off the North Wildwood boardwalk last night, simply for having his service dog by his side.

    Jared Goering served 1 tour in Iraq, 2 in Afghanistan, and spent 19 years as an active member of the Army. Jared said, "I served from 1993 to 2012." He then told NBC40 he couldn't sleep Thursday night because he felt so disrespected by a North Wildwood police officer.

    Goering said, "Just like any veteran with disabilities with a service dog, to come back and be harassed and shown no respect, it upset me - it really bothered me. I was up most of the night thinking about it."

    Comment: Mr. Goering "expected to get more respect" because of his Disabled Veteran status? Considering the pathological nature of the Police in America, he should probably be grateful they didn't taze him, then assault his wife and shoot his Service Dog while he laid there twitching.

    Water leaks at Fukushima could contaminate entire Pacific Ocean

    government officials and nuclear experts
    © AFP Photo / Jiji PressThis photo taken on August 6, 2013 shows local government officials and nuclear experts inspecting a construction site to prevent the seepage of contamination water into the sea, at Tokyo Electric Power's (TEPCO) Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant in Okuma, Fukushima prefecture.
    Two and a half years after the Fukashima tragedy Japan does not want to admit how serious it is, but it is obvious the drastic environmental implications are to follow, Harvey Wasserman, journalist and advocate for renewable energy, told RT.

    RT: Japanese officials have admitted a leak at Fukushima has been happening for two years and is worse than earlier thought. Why did it take so long to evaluate the actual repercussions of the tragedy and take decisive measures to tackle them?

    HW: The Japanese authorities have been covering up the true depth of the disaster because they don't want to embarrass themselves and the global nuclear industry and they are trying to open up another nuclear plant in Japan. When the Japanese people now find out that the accident is worse than we thought and they have been leaking many tons of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean for almost two and a half years, this is a catastrophe. Tokyo Electric has no idea how to control this accident. This is absolutely terrifying after two and a half years. To find out that these reactors have been out of control, now that they can't control this they don't know what's going on. This is not a primitive backward country; this is Japan with advanced technology. It has very serious implications for nuclear power all over the world.

    RT: Why the plant's operator failed to contain the leak?

    HW: Because they don't know what to do. This has never happened before. You have three explosions; you have four nuclear reactors that are severely compromised. No one ever planned for this. This is an apocalyptic event. This is something that could contaminate the entire Pacific Ocean. It is extremely serious. The reality is that Tokyo Electric does not know what is happening and does not know how to control what is going on. Our entire planet is at risk here. This is two and a half years after these explosions and they are still in the dark. It's terrifying.

    Psychopath alert: Some sex abuse victims 'can be to blame', says media tycoon

    Eddy Shah says underage girls who 'threw themselves' at celebrities must accept responsibility

    Former British newspaper tycoon Eddy Shah, cleared last month of raping a schoolgirl in the 1990s, has said underage girls who engage in consensual sex must take blame for the abuse they suffer.

    The 69-year-old, from Chippenham, Wiltshire, was found not guilty at the Old Bailey of raping a girl at upmarket London hotels when she was between 12 and 15.

    In his first in-depth interview since then, Mr Shah described charges of rape relating to girls under 16 who "threw themselves" at celebrities as "a technical thing".

    He also claimed that Scotland Yard's investigation into allegations of sexual abuse by Jimmy Savile and other television stars from the 1970s and 1980s is developing into a "witch hunt".

    His controversial comments come after a prosecutor was suspended and a judge placed under investigation this week when it emerged a 13-year-old female sex abuse victim was labelled "predatory" and "sexually experienced" in court.

    In an interview with presenter Stephen Nolan for BBC Radio 5 Live, Mr Shah said: "Rape was a technical thing - below a certain age. But these girls were going out with pop groups and becoming groupies and throwing themselves at them.

    "Young girls and young men have always wanted a bit of excitement when they are young. They want to appear adult and do adult things."

    Matt Damon: Obama 'Broke Up With Me'

    Actor Matt Damon told Black Entertainment Television (BET) that President Barack Obama "has some explaining to do:"
    There are a lot of things that I really question - the legality of the drone strikes, these NSA revelations. Jimmy Carter came out and said we don't live in a democracy. That's a little intense when an ex-president says that. So you know, he's got some explaining to do, particularly for a constitutional law professor.
    When asked his opinion of the President's second term, Damon chuckled and said, "He broke up with me."
