Quid Pro No – When Something Turns Out to be Nothing – Again

from the American Spectator:

Impeachment Misfire: William Taylor’s Smokeless Gun

Since late Tuesday the nation has been deafened by media outlets declaring that diplomat William Taylor provided “damning” congressional testimony involving President Trump’s actions toward Ukraine. The New York Times, for example, produced this breathless headline: “Donald Trump’s Quid Pro Quo Is Now a Smoking Gun.” Evidently, the “reporters” responsible for this story failed to read Taylor’s opening statement. It consists almost entirely of hearsay, shows that he wasn’t on the fabled phone call between presidents Trump and Zelensky, and confirms that he was assured by high-ranking Trump administration officials that the president sought no quid pro quo arrangement with Ukraine in exchange for aid: read more

Ordinarily, if it’s suspected that toxic airborne chemicals may be present in a given area, the analysis process can take up to several days. Now, however, scientists have developed a device that they claim can analyze the air on-location – but from a safe distance – within 10 seconds. read more

Time Yet for the Flat Tax?

Taxes have become a big issue again in this election season. Every democrat on the ballet has a least one or two wacky schemes they claim are free. Free college, free healthcare, etc. But when pressed, they have to admit that taxes will be drastically raised to pay for for these plans.

And the reason they can get away with it is our progressive tax system.

I’ve been a proponent of the Steve Forbes Flat tax plan for decades. I even supported him in 1996 when he ran for president. One of my sons and I even met him on the campaign trail and had an hour-long conversation with him. very smart man.

It was then that I first heard of his flat tax idea, as he explained it to me in detail.

Well., he’s still pushing it and like then, it’s still a great idea.

Prager University thought so, as they asked Mr. Forbes to expound upon it for one of their famous short videos: read more

Self-Hating White Guy Michael Moore Spouts Off Again

Don’t you just love how pasty white guys get a pass from the leftist media, just because they are themselves radical leftists. They whine and complain how white Trump voters have been so privileged and are scared to death that the White American will soon become a minority.

And dough-boy Michael Moore is one of the worst. He demonstrates his radical ideology once again and a hatred for his own race.

UGLY: Michael Moore Compares White Trump Voters to Pro-Apartheid South Africans

Far-left filmmaker Michael Moore joined MSNBC’s Hardball and host Chris Matthews on Tuesday to not only trumpet his endorsement of Bernie Sanders (despite previous skepticism about the 2020 field) but offer the hideous claim that white Trump voters of all economic stripes are racist on the level of pro-apartheid South Africans.

This ugly comparison came about part way through the block thanks to Matthews pondering “why” working class white voters like those Moore knows from his native Michigan “stick with” President Trump through all the controversies and now impeachment. read more

  • The Army is developing a long range cannon with a range in excess of 1,000 miles.
  • The Army wants a prototype by 2023.
  • The cannon, along with Army hypersonic missiles, will allow the service to strike targets far behind enemy lines.

The U.S. Army is pushing ahead with plans to field a cannon with an astounding 1,000-mile+ range. The cannon, along with hypersonic weapons, will allow the service to attack long range, strategic-level targets far beyond the reach of existing Army systems.

According to Defense News, the Army’s program manager for long range fires, Col. John Rafferty, the service expects the gun to have a range of 1,000 nautical miles—or 1,150 statute miles. The technology behind the cannon is described as “cutting edge” that’s so advanced that the service is not sure if the gun would be affordable.

$2.4 Million Wasted on a Public School Bathroom

What’s the one thing that all public school systems have in common? That’s right – they’re always crying poverty. no matter how much money we taxpayers spend on public education, it’s just never enough. Unfortunately, most times the money is not spent educating our kids. It’s wasted on palatial buildings and politically correct nonsense that won’t help the children learn a thing.

Yet we still keep electing the same idiots to run our public schools and flush the taxpayer’s money down the drain.

So, in a way, we only have ourselves to blame – both for electing them and allowing them to possibly permanently damage our kids.

Case in point from the Blaze:

A Pennsylvania school district is set to drop a hefty sum on a brand-new gender-neutral changing facility for students, according WTXF-TV.

The station reported that Garden Spot High School in New Holland will eliminate traditional boys and girls locker rooms with the $2.4 million project. Renovations are expected to be completed by December 2020. read more
