The Joro spider is a part of the Trichonephila clavata species and is part of a group of spiders known for highly organized, wheel-shaped webs. The females have colorful yellow, red and blue markings on … Continue reading ‘Zillions’ of big spiders are about to invade the East Coast

Useful Idiots

By Thomas Sowell Posted: May 20, 2003 – for Townhall.com The term “useful idiots” has been attributed to Lenin, as a description of those mindless people in the Western democracies who would always find ways to excuse whatever the Soviet Union did. Columnist Mona Charen’s new book Useful Idiots shows that such people are still with us. Long after the Soviet Union’s horrors had become too widely known around the world for their sympathizers in the West to be able to get away with whitewashing the USSR, new Communist dictatorships arose to become the new objects of the affections of the Western … Continue reading Useful Idiots

The Story of Elián, the Boy Who Was Plucked From the Sea

VANESSA GARCIA APRIL 21, 2020 – for the Miami New Times My cmnt: This piece is not clearly titled. Gracia used ‘myth’ in the title NOT referring to the true, miraculous story of Elian’s journey from Cuba in a small boat to American freedom and prosperity but rather the spin the Clinton-democrat-media establishment put on the story to justify sending poor Elian back to Castro. My cmnt: I’ve edited this piece for clarity, brevity and space and added commentary where needed. I was 20 years old on Thanksgiving Day 1999 when little Elián González, surrounded by dolphins, was found drifting off the … Continue reading The Story of Elián, the Boy Who Was Plucked From the Sea

Photographer and scientist Nathan Myhrvold has developed a camera that captures snowflakes at a microscopic level never seen before Jennifer Nalewicki – Travel Correspondent January 27, 2021 – for Smithsonian magazine My cmnt: Click Smithsonian above for the complete article. My cmnt: Since the 1920s when man first started understanding and really looking into the microscopic (and subatomic) world we have been privileged to see wonders that we had no idea existed.

Adding bike lanes on roads leads to soaring cyclist road deaths

Millions in federal taxpayer dollars were awarded in FY2021 for projects that included adding on-road bike lanes, and the infrastructure law expands the program by 50%, despite 37% rise in cyclist fatalities in decade preceding pandemic. By Nicholas Ballasy – February 5, 2022 – for Just the News My cmnt: Mayor Pete is finally back from paternity leave while his stay-at-home husband watches the kid and is up to the usual democrat shenanigans.

Meals on Wheels numbers follow the economy

I have been a volunteer delivering MOWs with my own car and gas for over 40 years now. My wife and I did them together until our boys were born then I would deliver them by myself. When our oldest was around 3 I would take him with me and let him carry the milk cartoons up to the doors. The old ladies, most of the MOWs recipients are elderly single women, would just go gaga over our small son walking up to them and handing them their milk. MOWs recipients don’t get out a lot. Unless their family comes … Continue reading Meals on Wheels numbers follow the economy

No Other Gods Before Me

By Robert Louis Wilken – Nov 1993 – First Things My cmnt: Written 28 years ago, this essay on the Truth of Christianity is as relevant today as it was then. What we are witnessing today is the rotten fruit of the Left systematically dismantling Western culture as Professor Wilken warned us in this essay. My cmnt: Wilken writes of “practical atheism” which he calls secularism. At that time we tended to call atheism “secular humanism”. This turned out to be too weak of a description. It doesn’t really capture the true essence of post-modernism in the 21st century. My … Continue reading No Other Gods Before Me

The Gods Must Be Tidy!

Is the Cosmos a Work of Poor Engineering or the Gift of an Artistic Designer? by Jonathan Witt – Jul/Aug 2004 – for Touchstone magazine My cmnt: This is a brilliant essay well worth the long read. Darwinists are fond of pointing out what they consider design flaws in living things. Inefficiencies, in their minds, that a master designer simply would not do. Yet Witt contends that Messy things not only make the world better but also a lot more interesting. My cmnt: It reminds me of when a boy first learns about a girl’s reproductive system. Ewww, they are … Continue reading The Gods Must Be Tidy!

The Lawrence Welk Show was TV’s best party—until it wasn’t

By Emily St. James 12/17/2012 – for AVclub.com My cmnt: Growing up in 1950s & 60s I and my siblings were forced to let our Czech-immigrant Grandfather watch “The Lawrence Welk Show” on our only TV every Saturday nite. He would eventually fall asleep and we would then stealth up to the TV and very slowly turn the volume down. If he didn’t wake up we would carefully turn the channel knob so that its click wouldn’t wake him and when we had it back to whatever it was we were watching we would carefully turn the volume back up just … Continue reading The Lawrence Welk Show was TV’s best party—until it wasn’t

My cmnt: The reprehensible manner that Fraud Fauci and Francis Collins maligned this declaration and attacked the eminent scientists, professors and medical doctors who authored and signed it was a shock to me. I was actually witnessing and experiencing communist/nazi suppression tactics I knew the democrats were capable of but never believed I … Continue reading A Nobel Prize for the Canadian Truckers and Doctors Behind Great Barrington Declaration

One more Lincoln Police officer is fired, another resigns

By Lori Pilger Mar 3, 2022 – for the Lincoln Journal Star My cmnt: This is now my fourth post on this topic. I do find it amusing, in a disturbing kind of way, to see the most Lib-Left city in the state, with the most Lib-Left mayor and police chief in the state, both women, I think – I don’t really know how they identify, throwing one female police officer after another under the bus for filing sexual harassment claims. A Lib is always a Lib first and foremost; before any other consideration, identification or allegiance. If Libness is … Continue reading One more Lincoln Police officer is fired, another resigns

Lincoln’s Fairness ordinance a threat to womanhood

By CYNDI LAMM Mar 3, 2022 – guest opinion for the Lincoln Journal Star We may be living the lyrics of the song “2525.” At least that is what I and some others are wondering with the City Council’s passage of the so called “fairness ordinance.” Specifically, I’m wondering “if woman can survive” the movement that not only takes away safe spaces for women and girls, but also threatens to makes womanhood disappear altogether. Many in this community are hesitant to discuss the movement that is sweeping our nation, maybe because we feel uncomfortable, or maybe because we feel diminished … Continue reading Lincoln’s Fairness ordinance a threat to womanhood

Iowa Becomes 11th GOP-Run State to Ban Transgender Women in Women’s Sports

BY LORA KORPAR ON 3/3/22 – for Newsweek.com Iowa passed a law Thursday banning transgender women from participating in women’s sports at the high school and college levels.

This makes Iowa the 11th state to pass legislation of this nature, with the other states also led by Republicans, according to the Associated Press.

The Transgender Threat to Women’s Sports

by Abigail Shrier – Oct 20, 2020 – for Newsweek.com Whether to allow biological men into women’s sports may be the silliest debate of our time. Fairness falls so completely to one side; outcomes are obvious and predetermined. If this were not 2020—if Americans were not terrified to acknowledge the plain truths in front of them—this discussion would be confined to its more natural domain: high school auditoriums, where boys and girls in glasses and blazers can earn high marks for casuistry. There is hardly a woman alive who has not, in her teen years, challenged a boy her age … Continue reading The Transgender Threat to Women’s Sports

Did Heath Ledger die due to depression after playing Joker in The Dark Knight?

Heath Ledger, in an interview with New York Times, said that playing Joker in The Dark Knight was ‘physically and mentally draining’ for him.  India TV Entertainment Desk New Delhi Updated on: June 15, 2020 12:02 IST My cmnt: The author quotes Ledger’s sister as dispelling this rumor.

However, this rumour was … Continue reading Did Heath Ledger die due to depression after playing Joker in The Dark Knight?

SPENCER TRACY – A nightmare of a man.

By Historian Alan Royal August 6, 2015 admin Did You Know? 37 My cmnt: This mostly is for old people like yours truly. I grew up admiring Spencer Tracy in the movies and, his not exactly doppelgänger, but close enough in style and acting abilities kissing cousin James Whitmore. As a kid I often confused the two. My cmnt: I remember seeing Tracy in “Boys Town” (not when it came out in 1938 but much later on TV in the 60s) and I just thought he was Father Flanagan. And my mom took me with her to see “Guess who’s coming to dinner” … Continue reading SPENCER TRACY – A nightmare of a man.

“We are seeing, right now, the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business,” OneAmerica CEO Scott Davison says. By The Center Square Staff – By Margaret Menge – Jan 01, 2022 – for Just the News My cmnt: The vaccines are almost certainly responsible for this terrifying increase in deaths among those of working age.

I publish this column here because of the great job he does surveying the many democrat-caused disasters that don’t worry democrat leadership at all. What is behind recent pessimistic appraisals of democracy’s future, from Hillary Clinton, Adam Schiff, Brian Williams and other elite intellectuals, media personalities, and politicians on the Left?

Others predict democracy’s downturn as early 2022, with scary scenarios of … Continue reading Why is the Left Suddenly Worried About the End of Democracy?

The COVID-19 Storyline Is the Greatest Scam in World History – The Truth Is This Is a ‘Pandemic of the Vaccinated’

By Wayne Allyn Root |Posted: Jan 30, 2022 – for Breitbart news This week has been eye-opening. Even for me — and I’m the guy who has warned for over a year, in commentary after commentary, and often for three hours a day on my nationally syndicated radio show, that the COVID-19 vaccine could be dangerous and deadly and could lead to catastrophe.  I stuck my neck out like no other talk show host in America to warn the vaccine may not even prevent illness; in fact, it could damage the immune system, thereby causing more illness and death. And … Continue reading The COVID-19 Storyline Is the Greatest Scam in World History – The Truth Is This Is a ‘Pandemic of the Vaccinated’

By  Amanda Prestigiacomo• Jul 6, 2021   DailyWire.com My cmnt: Michaela Kennedy-Cuomo (how’s that for two powerful, influential democrat royalty combined into one person) has all the white privilege it is possible to have. She’s white, female, pretty, from a rich family, went to an elite university, born and raised in New York City, and now needs a way to call attention to herself and make some money the democrat way – without a real job and without doing any real work.

Electric Vehicle Push Is Sparking Massive Deforestation, Environmental Damage

By THOMAS CATENACCI ENERGY & ENVIRONMENT REPORTER for Daily Caller My cmnt: Look, electric cars can never replace gas-powered cars, period. This is a democrat pipe dream. An electric car needs heating and A/C in most of the regions of the U.S. This is not possible to do with a battery or even a bunch of batteries and never will be. So supplemental gas-powered engines (the so-called hybrid gas/electric vehicle) will always be needed. The end result is nonsense and will produce as much overall pollution and more than before. My cmnt: Windmills and solar panels will never replace fossil … Continue reading Electric Vehicle Push Is Sparking Massive Deforestation, Environmental Damage

However I did read quite a bit about them. My cmnt: Hitler, the Soviet Union and now Red China have all attempted to use the Olympic games for propaganda purposes. They all hoped to use the games and their doped-up athletes and cheating to show the world that their systems of government and economy were superior to those in the free West.

Trudeau’s tactics mark the second time Democrats inspired a dictator

By Andrea Widburg – Feb 16, 2022 – for American Thinker Canada’s Trudeau is not an original thinker; he’s a follower.  He pretends to be Black, Indian, or a cowboy.  He admires dictators (Castro) and dictatorships (China).  That’s why I wasn’t at all surprised to recognize that both his rhetoric regarding the truckers and his response to them perfectly echo the Democrats’ rhetoric and response to the January 6 protesters.  But this isn’t the first time Democrats have inspired dictators.  Back in the 1920s and 1930s, Hitler looked to the Democrats’ eugenics laws, especially in the American South, to craft the Nazi’s eugenics laws. I don’t … Continue reading Trudeau’s tactics mark the second time Democrats inspired a dictator

Some thoughts on video gaming

This Is a New One: ‘Reality Privilege’ My cmnt: There were no video games when I was growing up instead we had pinball machines (which I didn’t play because I had no money) but my cousin did for hours at Treasure City. He played because his mom gave him money and wanted him out of her hair and he was good enough to make four quarters last a very long time. Pinball was so cool (still is) they had their own song “Pinball Wizard” which came out in 1969 by “The Who”. My cmnt: My kids and now my grandkids … Continue reading Some thoughts on video gaming

Another Lincoln officer who came forward about harassment, discrimination suspended

By Lori Pilger – Feb 21, 2022 – for the Lincoln Journal Star My cmnt: This is now my third post on this topic. Our new, super-lib, female Police Chief from San Francisco (hired by our super-Lib, female Mayor from Portland, Or) was brought in with the same tired reasoning you always hear from the Left: A woman understands sexual harassment and will ensure our police dept offers increased opportunities for women, minorities and people on the fringe of sexual identification. What happens is that the rights of women and the rights of transexuals often conflict. So guess who gets … Continue reading Another Lincoln officer who came forward about harassment, discrimination suspended

My cmnt: First, we have blue states continuing the drag on the economy with their stupid and draconian Covid measures. Second, we have Biden closing down our energy … Continue reading Nebraska families feeling the pinch of high inflation

The Great Epstein Cover-up, Part I

January 5, 2022 by Ann Coulter – her website Question: Is our ruling class trying to make us to think they’re a bunch of pederasts? Our media could not be less interested in Jeffrey Epstein’s child molestation ring and, with the sole exception of the Palm Beach Police Department, every arm of government has bent over backward to bury the case. (Who says our media and government can’t work together?) The jury’s courageous delivery last week of five “guilty” verdicts against Epstein’s pimp, Ghislaine Maxwell, was a sort of reverse jury nullification. The U.S. attorney’s office — the prosecution — did everything it could to … Continue reading The Great Epstein Cover-up, Part I

The Great Epstein Cover-up, Part 2

January 12, 2022 by Ann Coulter – her website Last week, we reviewed our ruling class’s strange lack of interest in Jeffrey Epstein’s child molestation ring, in which so many of them played a part. The media cover-up is second only to the government cover-up, with prosecutors delivering loss after loss in cases they’ve been forced to bring (by the police and the public) against the child molester. This week, we’ll look at the government’s long record of zealously trying NOT to unravel the case. Barry Krischer was the first prosecutor to let Epstein off for child molestation. The local police … Continue reading The Great Epstein Cover-up, Part 2

Chinese Mercilessly Heckle Figure Skater Who Defected from U.S. After Olympic Fall

By JOHN HAYWARD – 8 Feb 2022 – for Breitbart news Chinese social media users, who typically echo the sentiments of the Communist Party lest they be censored, have mercilessly heckled 19-year-old figure skater Zhu Yi – born in America but competing for China – after she fell on the ice on Sunday and finished in last place at the Beijing Winter Olympics. The heckling was so intense that Chinese government censors claim they intervened and shut down almost a hundred accounts on Weibo, China’s heavily-controlled alternative to Twitter — which is prohibited in the country. Zhu was raised under … Continue reading Chinese Mercilessly Heckle Figure Skater Who Defected from U.S. After Olympic Fall

Associated Press Concerned About Genocide Barbie Being ‘Judged’ too Harshly

By WARNER TODD HUSTON – 16 Feb 2022 – for Breitbart news The Associated Press is jumping to the defense of Eileen Gu, aka Genocide Barbie, the US-born skier who defected from America to win gold for the red Chinese. In a Feb. 15 article, the AP attempted to drum up sympathy for the 18-year-old Olympian as a teen caught between two worlds, the nation of her birth in the U.S.A. and the country she has adopted as her own, China. The AP lamented that “the fascination — some might say obsession — with Eileen Gu’s origin story” is threatening to … Continue reading Associated Press Concerned About Genocide Barbie Being ‘Judged’ too Harshly

Eileen Gu: Navigating two cultures, judged by both of them

By JANIE HAR and SARAH DiLORENZO – February 15, 2022 – AP BEIJING (AP) — She is an exceptional athlete who has already won medals in the Beijing Olympics. But the fascination — some might say obsession — with Eileen Gu’s origin story has threatened to overshadow anything she does on the slopes. As the freestyle skier chases gold in the mountains northwest of Beijing, some competing narratives about her have taken hold, from California to China. Some have the San Francisco native skiing for the Chinese team to secure more lucrative endorsements. In others, she has betrayed the United … Continue reading Eileen Gu: Navigating two cultures, judged by both of them

Domestication, Human Exceptionalism, and Creation

by Hugh Ross – April 20, 2020 – for Reasons to Believe How many origin events has Earth’s life undergone? From a naturalistic perspective there is just one origin of life: the origin of the Last Universal Common Ancestor (LUCA). Naturalistic models for life posit that somehow physics and chemistry on the early Earth gave rise to a simple bacterium from which all organisms presently have a common descent. These models also claim that all life can be explained by physics and chemistry alone. Genesis 1 declares that there were three distinct origins of life: (1) the origin of purely physical life … Continue reading Domestication, Human Exceptionalism, and Creation

Black History Month is about more than just Black Americans

Every moment of greatness in our history belongs to all Americans By Ben Carson M.D. – Feb 9, 2022 – for Fox News Black History Month is upon us. Some will attempt to use it as a tool to push divisive agendas such as critical race theory or Black Lives Matter.  But we must avoid such ideologies and remain focused on what unites us as a nation, regardless of our race.

Do Muslim Women Get a Harem of 72 Sexy Studs in Heaven?

By Raymond Ibrahim – Feb 3, 2022 – for The American Thinker My cmnt: I worked with a Muslim man from Pakistan who was quite religious. He would not drink alcohol, prayed five times a day (some while at work), would not eat pork and overall was a very decent fellow. At the time I knew very little about Islam and so took advantage of our association to ask any number of questions. When the suicide bombers became a news item it wasn’t long before we all heard of the 72 virgins awaiting them in Muslim heaven.

Donald Trump was right, Democrats were spying on him

Trump told the truth bluntly, often when nobody else would My cmnt: They say they didn’t spy on President Trump, they just “exploited” data they had privileged access to.

Durham’s Jaw-Dropping Revelation

By THE EDITORS – Feb 15, 2022 – for National Review One characteristic of Russiagate bombshells is that the mainstream press simply doesn’t cover them. That stands in contrast to the breathless coverage given to the original investigations, even as they never delivered the promised goods. So it is with the latest jaw-dropping revelation from the Durham investigation. Special Counsel John Durham, of course, is scrutinizing the origins of the Obama administration’s Trump/Russia probe — a probe that holdover officials at the FBI and other government national-security agencies extended into the Trump administration, even as Donald Trump was the sitting president of the United … Continue reading Durham’s Jaw-Dropping Revelation

It’s Hate White History Month!

 February 2, 2022 by Ann Coulter – her website Last week, we covered the monumental lack of self-awareness of liberals denouncing others as “snowflakes,” even as they force Amazon to remove books, tear down historical monuments, hide black suspects’ race, and demand the immediate firing of anyone who mentions black performance on standardized tests. This week, we’ll cover the left’s claim that they are teaching “history.” Terrified that their hate-America curricula have been discovered by parents and politicians, liberals hysterically accuse them of opposing the teaching of “history.” As MSNBC’s Joy Ann Reid put it: “Like, it is a problem for old … Continue reading It’s Hate White History Month!

By BRITTANY BERNSTEIN – Feb 13, 2022 – for National Review My cmnt: This is a really big deal. This is far worse than Watergate. This is treason by Hillary and her campaign and the Obama regime.
