If You Criticize the Media, You’ll be Told to Leave

from Huma Events:

That Time The Media Told Solzhenitsyn To Love It Or Leave It.

Last week, President Trump suggested that a few particularly acerbic critics of his immigration policies should pack up and leave. For that, he was branded a racist.

What’s really going on here?

“The press has become the greatest power within the Western countries, more powerful than the legislature, the executive and the judiciary. One would then like to ask: by what law has it been elected and to whom is it responsible?”

In 1978, the great Russian writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn was invited to give the commencement address at Harvard University.

In his speech, the exiled dissident harshly criticized Western news reporting for endorsing “fashionable trends of thought and ideas” while suppressing “independent-minded people from giving their contribution to public life.” read more

Portable, cordless air-compressors aren’t exactly new, but they’re often bulky, limited in scope and ugly. In response to these issues, a team of engineers and product designers from Hong Kong has come up with the Norshire Mini, a compact, minimalist, multi-function pump/compressor for the iPhone generation. read more

Joke of the Day

An Islamic Imam was driving through a rural town in Alabama, when he is pulled over by a country cop. The cop gets out of his car and approaches the window of the Imam’s car.

“Do you know how fast you were going?” The cop says.

The Imam responded angrily, “I have no stinking clue, infidel!” read more

Have you heard? There was another major city mass killing just yesterday. 33 victims are confirmed dead, and another 36 were injured, but the investigation is ongoing. Earlier in the day, the death toll stood at 23, but victims continued to be discovered.

The death toll is eclipsed by only two modern day mass-shootings in America – Las Vegas and Orlando.

But wait – you haven’t heard? How could there be a mass-killing of dozens without it being reported?

Witnesses claim that a man burst into the offices of an animation production company and started screaming “You Die!”

Again – how is it that we haven’t heard? read more

Our bodies have powerful built-in defenses in the form of the immune system, but sometimes it needs an extra push. Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T cell therapy involves reprogramming T-cells to hunt down cancer, which has been effective against blood cancers but not so much against solid tumors. Now, scientists at MIT have found a way to supercharge the technique with a vaccine booster. read more

Illegal Alien MS-13 Gang Members Indicted

While democrats like Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) are concerned with ridding us of the term “illegal alien,” here’s what’s happening in the real world.

from Conservative Review:

19 of 22 indicted for ultra-violent MS-13 murders are illegal aliens from Central America

When James Madison said the jobs of the federal government were “few and defined,” applied “principally on external objects,” he was referring to exactly what has been brought into California from Central America. Yesterday, in what should be the biggest new story of the day, California and federal law enforcement wrapped up an MS-13 task force investigation, completing the indictment of 22 MS-13 members from a particularly brutal cell responsible for numerous gruesome murders. The operation began last year with the arrest of 18 members of MS-13’s “Fulton clique,” culminating with the arrest of the final four in recent days, according to the 78-page indictment. read more

Weapon Wednesday – Chuck Norris has a New Show!

Chuck Norris is a man of many skills, both real and mythical. We’re definitely sure he’s a decorated Air Force veteran, a martial arts master, an accomplished actor, and a sage philosopher. And we’re pretty sure he once beat the sun in a staring contest, punched a cyclops between the eye, uppercutted a horse and created giraffes, and counted to infinity—twice. Now we can add HISTORY host to his ever-expanding résumé. read more
