Unlocking Fusion Power Would Revolutionize Energy. The Hard Part Is Making It Work

Scientists and startups are edging closer to realizing a decades-old dream. Stephen Shankland Nov. 16, 2022 12:00 p.m. PT – for Cnet.com My cmnt: The future of electric power generation for the world is coal, natural gas and oil for at least the next 30 years. Climate change is unavoidable and is strictly a religious (nature worshiping democrats) sentiment with no real science behind it. Carbon Dioxide is NOT a pollutant and does NOT drive global warming. It is plant food and is necessary in the atmosphere to continue feeding the world. Libs hate people which is why they want … Continue reading Unlocking Fusion Power Would Revolutionize Energy.

Biden’s Magic Electric Cars: Inconvenient Facts

John Stossel |  Nov 16, 2022 – for Townhall.com My cmnt: Electric cars, like every other Green Dream of the Left and democrats, solve nothing. They still require electricity produced by nuclear, coal and natural gas. They require vast amounts of oil to run the machines to produce electric cars and their horribly polluting batteries. They cannot heat the car during winter nor cool the car during summer. Producing batteries is more polluting than pumping and using oil. Carbon dioxide is NOT a pollutant but is in fact plant food and needed to produce the vast amounts of crops we need … Continue reading Biden’s Magic Electric Cars: Inconvenient Facts

The Pandemic Tyrants Don’t Deserve Forgiveness

By Katie Pavlich |  Nov 04, 2022 – for Townhall.com Greg Nash/Pool via AP My cmnt: The very fact that the Libs are instigating this whole inappropriate “forgiveness” thing is indication that they KNOW they are inexcusably guilty. But this ploy at forgiveness is conflating forgiveness with justice. An individual can and must forgive, however the State is there to administer justice not mercy. Criminal malfeasance was going on and must be acknowledged and appropriately punished. Period. After years of causing great and preventable harm, the so-called expert class, saturated with far too many higher education degrees, wants to call a … Continue reading The Pandemic Tyrants Don’t Deserve Forgiveness

COVID Tyrants at Left-wing Atlantic Beg for Amnesty

By JOHN NOLTE – 1 Nov 2022 – for Breitbart.news My cmnt: Please see the Atlantic article below this one and the John Lewis funeral hypocrisy below that one. Our COVID oppressors at the far-left Atlantic are now begging for a COVID amnesty in the wake of all their anti-science COVID oppression. That’s not going to happen. Ever. First, never forget the Atlantic is owned by this fascist who did this while you and I weren’t allowed to visit our relatives in hospitals or nursing homes or attend funerals. Because I’ve needed both, I’m a big fan of forgiveness and second chances. Before that can happen, however, there must first … Continue reading COVID Tyrants at Left-wing Atlantic Beg for Amnesty

The Big COVID Vaccine Lie Comes Crashing Down

By Katie Pavlich | Oct 14, 2022 – for Townhall.com For two years, big government tyrants, using examples set by the Chinese Communist Party, have gleefully dehumanized wide swaths of the American population, condemned dissent and run those with questions about rushed and experimental drugs out of society with digital passes and vaccine cards.  After bravely working through the height of the pandemic, firefighters, police officers, nurses, doctors and other frontline workers were fired from their jobs as governments and their corporate partners instituted non-negotiable mandates.  In his quest for unlimited power, President Joe Biden attempted to use the Occupational Safety and Health … Continue reading The Big COVID Vaccine Lie Comes Crashing Down

Hurricane Hype, Lies, Censorship – and Reality

Paul Driessen | Posted: Oct 09, 2022 12:01 AM – for Townhall.com Hurricane Ian is in the history books, having unleashed its Category 4 fury on southwestern Florida. Even as the area slowly digs out and rebuilds, the devastation and tragedies will linger in reality and memories.   Ian was the latest of 123 hurricanes to hit the Sunshine State since official recordkeeping began in 1851. But not surprisingly, some wasted no time trying to link Ian to the most dominant issue of our time.  Climate change is “rapidly fueling super hurricanes,” a Washington Post headline proclaimed. “I grew up … Continue reading Hurricane Hype, Lies, Censorship – and Reality

Big Tent Originalism

Originalism is the most meaningful approach to constitutional interpretation. by Jeremy Rabkin – Summer 2018 – for Claremont Review of Books Ilan Wurman’s valuable new book, A Debt Against the Living, lives up to its subtitle: it offers an “introduction.” Wurman wants to persuade readers that “originalism”—the effort to read the Constitution in accord with its original meaning—is a serious project. And he wants to show that it is, in fact, a much more reasonable approach than alternatives that leave judges free to improvise new meanings based on contemporary fads or priorities, thus defeating the point of a written constitution.

Did Physics Kill God?

By Jay W. Richards – Nov 3, 2010 – discovery.org JAY W. RICHARDS NOVEMBER 3, 2010  INTELLIGENT DESIGN ORIGINAL ARTICLE Stephen Hawking declared that our understanding of physics proves God did not create the universe. Is he right?

There are concerning trends on blood clots and low platelets, not that the authorities will tell you. By Joseph A. Ladapo and Harvey A. Risch – June 22, 2021 1:09 pm – Wall Street Journal One remarkable aspect of the Covid-19 pandemic has been how often unpopular scientific ideas, from the lab-leak theory to the efficacy of masks, were initially dismissed, even ridiculed, only to resurface later in mainstream thinking. Differences of opinion have sometimes been rooted in disagreement over the underlying science. But the more common motivation has been political. Another reversal in thinking may be imminent. Some scientists have raised concerns that the … Continue reading Are Covid Vaccines Riskier Than Advertised?

And the mining of rare earth and other metals is an environmental nightmare just to make windmills, solar panels and car batteries. Green is the color of envy and is unbecoming on everyone.

3 Myths From Trans Folklorists That Allow Men Like Lia Thomas To Hurt Themselves And Others

BY: WALT HEYER – FEBRUARY 03, 2022 – 8 MIN READ – for The Federalist Changing genders is a myth and trans folklorists who promote it are harming people, especially children vulnerable to believing fairy tales can come true. University of Pennsylvania transgender swimmer Lia Thomas, a man, has smashed records and shocked sensibilities. Thomas’s performance illustrates the effects and absurdity of denying differences between the sexes, especially men’s obvious bodily advantages in sports. Thomas presumably fulfilled the NCAA’s policy requiring trans athletes to suppress testosterone levels for a designated time before competing on the woman’s team. In January, the NCAA tweaked the rules to place sport-specific … Continue reading 3 Myths From Trans Folklorists That Allow Men Like Lia Thomas To Hurt Themselves And Others

Some actual benefits from the Covid-19 over reaction

Covid-19: the most over-hyped, over-blown ‘pandemic’ in the history of mankind still has an upside As of today allegedly 500,000 Americans have died of Covid-19. That figure is most likely overstated by a factor of 10. In a typical flu season between 25 and 50,000 Americans die from the flu. Most of those are very young children and elderly adults. The remarkable thing about the Wuhan Flu is that children are hardly affected by it at all.

Ernst Heinrich Philipp August Haeckel (16 February 1834 – 9 August 1919) was a German zoologist and an strong proponent of scientific racism.

Haeckel promoted and popularized Charles Darwin’s work in Germany and embraced an interpretation of Darwin’s pseudo-scientific theory of modification with descent that promoted the idea that “survival of the fittest” was a natural law that could be applied to … Continue reading Ernst Haeckel: Social Darwinist, Racist & Fraud

Darwinism: In pictures

Darwin drew a lot of criticism from his contemporaries and a fair amount of ridicule also. His fellow biologists and other scientists realized the many weaknesses in his theory and to his credit so did Darwin.
