Joke of the Day

Positive Attitude!

After his plane was hit and he was forced to eject, the Marine Corps fighter pilot finally regained consciousness.

He was in a hospital, in a lot of pain.

He found himself in the ICU with tubes and IV drips in both arms, a breathing mask, wires monitoring every function and a nurse hovering over him, looking worried. It was obvious he was in a life-threatening situation. read more

It’s Time Someone Slapped Down the Rogue Federal Courts

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

On Wednesday, at a rally in Nashville, president Trump proclaimed that, “A judge has just blocked our Executive Order on travel and refugees coming into our country from certain countries….We’re going to fight this terrible ruling. We’re going to take our case as far as it needs to go including all the way up to the supreme Court. The danger is clear – the law is clear – the need for my Executive order is clear…”

Trump has now been blocked multiple times by lower court judges.

So what does he or anyone intend to do about it? It appears he intends to fight this all way to the high court – or should I say, the black-robed legislators. And then what?

This is how far we’ve strayed from the Constitution and the design of the federal judicial branch’s authority. All on the right are wailing about the courts clearly overstepping their bounds, but from what I’ve heard and seen thus far, no one has offered a solution. read more

According to the World Health Organization, snakes bite an estimated 5 million people each year, killing more than 100,000 of those victims and permanently injuring hundreds of thousands more. Current antivenoms might not be saving lives as efficiently as they could be, given that they’re difficult and expensive to produce, distribute and administer. Now, researchers at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) have developed a synthetic alternative with a long shelf-life that can neutralize the venom from several species of snakes. read more

Joke of the Day

In a city church located near you one Sunday morning, a preacher said,
“Anyone with ‘special needs” who wants to be prayed over, please come
forward to the front by the altar.”

With that, Leroy got in line, and when it was his turn, the Preacher
asked, “Leroy, what do you want me to pray about for you?” read more

The Lefts Special Ability to See Racism

I find it fascinating that the only culture not worth preserving is Western culture, and particularly American culture.

No matter how long I lived in – pick a country – say – Mexico, I would never be afforded the title of hyphenated countryman. Regardless of my insistence, I would never be considered American-Mexican, or American Hispanic. No one would come to my aid and insist that my American heritage must be preserved – that it would add to or somehow strengthen Mexican culture. There would be no protests, no marches, no picket signs, no pressing two for English. And those in Mexico would have little patience with me flying the American flag. They would expect me to assimilate, and rightly so.

Yet, as we are well aware, there is no such expectation in America. Quite the opposite. We are the ones who are expected to accept and celebrate everyone else’s culture but our own, allowing them to live as they would like, as permanent house guests. This, we are told, is multiculturalism and is indeed to be celebrated as somehow strengthening our nation.

Because of this we are slowly losing our identity, our culture – what it means to be American.

Recently, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, landed himself in hot water with the liberal elite for stating this very thing. He was interviewed  by the poster-boy of leftist elitism, CNN’s Chris Cuomo. Cuomo immediately began attacking King regarding a tweet by the Republican in support of a comment made by Dutch politician Geert Wilders. read more

The U.S. Army is researching a new way to resupply troops: by bombing them with mortars. The service was recently granted a patent for a method that uses hollow artillery shells, GPS, and parasails to deliver goods to soldiers pinned down on the battlefield.

My Weekly WND Exclusive – The Clueless Left’s Alignment with Radical Islam

I recently wrote an article on the Day Without a Woman protest, or strike, or whatever it turned out to be.

Unbeknownst to every participant, I’m sure, the women’s protest for equality (or whatever the heck it was) was not organized by concerned citizens or even feminist groups like the National Organization for Women. It was in fact organized largely by extremist Islamists – one a Shariah law advocate and another a known terrorist.

One of the various ways the Muslim Brotherhood has had success infiltrating American society is that they organize and involve themselves in events to co-opt liberal causes, further advancing their radical Islamic ideology. They also promote liberal causes in an effort to piggyback onto any potential legislative measure created to placate whiny leftists. This is part of their overall plan, which has been dubbed Civilization Jihad. read more

A Look at Hyperloop

The full-scale test track in the Nevada desert
The full-scale test track in the Nevada desert

With a few different players now in the game, the race is on to win over governments and get the once seemingly far-fetched Hyperloop up and running. For LA-based startup Hyperloop One, that means rolling into Dubai with photos of its full-scale test track and a few renderings of what the first Middle Eastern Hyperloop terminals might look like. read more

The Middlebury Monopoly

from Thomas Sowell:

Many people seem shocked at the recent savagery of a mob of students at Middlebury College, who rioted to prevent Charles Murray from addressing a student group who had invited him to speak. They also inflicted injuries requiring hospitalization on a woman from the faculty who was with him.

Where have all these shocked people been all these years? What happened at Middlebury College has been happening for decades, all across the country, from Berkeley to Harvard. Moreover, even critics of the Middlebury College rioters betray some of the same irresponsible mindset as that of the young rioters.

The moral dry rot in academia — and beyond — goes far deeper than student storm troopers at one college. read more
