Bacteria are quickly evolving resistances to antibiotics, to the extent that our best drugs might not work in the terrifyingly-near future. Scientists are hard at work developing new antibiotics, or finding ways to make existing ones more effective. Now, researchers from Thomas Jefferson University have found a new way to weaken bacterial defenses, slowing down the development of antibiotic resistance. read more

Leftist University Rids Itself of the Scourge of Chick-fil-A

Chick-fil-A is now the third largest chain restaurant in the nation, behind only McDonald’s at number one and Starbucks in second. It successfully unseated Subway recently, bumping the sub-shop chain to number four. It has seen a meteoric rise as of late. In 2017, Chick-fil-A was ranked a mere 7th, behind Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy’s . But the quality of its product and superior staff has pole-vaulted it passed the aforementioned giants.

And its done all this despite constant attacks by the loony left, claiming that the restaurant chain supports “anti-LGBT” causes. These attacks are particularly prevalent on … you guessed it … college campuses.

from the College Fix:

Faculty votes to remove Chick-fil-A from campus after 25 years

In 2016 we reported the end of the Defender line. Jaguar Land Rover even had a big, teary party to farewell the then 68 year old icon. Well, it seems you can’t keep a good marque down and the long-awaited replacement for the Defender is … the Defender. read more

Just How Far left is Ilhan Omar?

from the American Spectator:

Is Ilhan Omar a Communist?

Commie Angela Davis

Now there’s a headline to make progressives light their hair on fire. Few things set off liberals quite like anti-communism. Pro-communism doesn’t bother them much, at least not enough to openly complain. But anti-communism? One whiff of it sends them hyperventilating into howls of McCarthyism. The same seems true nowadays for socialism, as evident when Donald Trump devoted a mere line or two to it in his State of the Union. Judging from liberal hysteria, one would think Trump had announced a resurrection of the House Committee on Un-American Activities. What a shameless Red-baiter!

That brings me to Ilhan Omar, stalwart member of the Democratic Socialists of America, which describes itself as “the largest socialist organization in the United States.” Read: “socialist,” even as self-described “democratic socialists” insist that they eschew the label “socialist.” read more

Russia’s Belgorod Submarine

Russia launched the world’s longest submarine today, the special mission submarine Belgorod. Designed to support a variety of military missions, including the Poseidon long-range strategic nuclear torpedo, the sub is far larger than anything operated by any other naval force, including the U.S. Navy. The six hundred foot long submarine displaces more water than a World War I battleship and can dive to a depth of 1,700 feet. read more

Feminists Wising up to the Threat of Transgenderism

Since the dawn of feminism, women have been preached at, that a woman can do anything a man can, and maybe better. But God made men and women different. It’s taken the onset of transgenders competing directly against women for them to finally figure this out. And they’re not happy about. Welcome to the party.

from the Federalist:

Trans Competitors In Women’s Sports Destroy What Women Have Won

The ‘party of science’ conveniently ignores that men are able to develop and maintain more muscle mass and that their bodies can pump more oxygen.

Competing on the University of Iowa Women’s Rowing Team was one of the greatest experiences imaginable. I look back on those four years with a thankful heart for not only representing my state on the national stage but also developing a lasting sisterhood with the women I rowed with.

I can speak for the majority of female athletes when saying that sports have given women an outlet to better ourselves. Yet Democrats’ proposed Equality Act in the House of Representatives will completely alter women’s sports. The most poignant fact of H.R.5. is that if a biological man chooses so, even without receiving opposite-sex hormones, he can compete against a biological woman.

To think that a biological man who identifies as a woman can compete with us as if our bodies can be cheapened like this is not only insulting but also a direct assault on our selves as female athletes. We’re athletes who have trained to become the best versions of ourselves, and what we’ve achieved is being stolen by the hands of one whose feelings are deemed more worthy, according to a select few on the left. Under progressivism, a transgender individual’s desires must dominate women’s freedoms.

Men are indeed built differently than women. Males have larger internal organs than females, meaning they can pump more oxygen into their bodies, which yields higher athletic performance. And no, opposite-sex hormones do not hinder men’s physical advantage.

Better to be Awake than Woke

by: Brent Smith at Common Constitutionalist

I enjoy viewing various #WalkAway stories from time to time – seeing what it took for each to wise up to the nonsense they’ve been spoon-fed their whole lives.

For those unfamiliar, the #WalkAway campaign was founded by Brandon Straka, whose liberal eyes were opened to the hypocrisy and lies of the left and decided to WalkAway from liberalism and the democrat party.

Now, thousands are too having their eyes open as they join the campaign.

The following is a #WalkAway video posted by Shannon. She claims to be an independent, not affiliated with either party, but always voted democrat, until recently. read more

A Game of Thrones Dark Night

After months of teasing Game of Thrones recently aired what purportedly was the biggest and longest battle sequence in film history. But as soon as the episode aired the internet started to echo with criticism the battle was too dark and incoherent. While the makers adamantly claim the visual darkness in the episode was an intentional creative choice an enormous volume of fans are upset they couldn’t properly see what was going on. read more

George Carlin on Saving the Planet

The following video is comedian George Carlin’s rather politically incorrect take on saving the planet, and how mankind is not to blame for its destruction.

Warning: If you can’t stomach the F-word, you may want to skip this one. Otherwise, enjoy Carlin’s irreverent take on the arrogance of the left: read more

Is Soylent Green Really that Fantastic?

The other day, an internet article jumped off the screen at me.

It was posted on the progressive, Seattle PI website, and was entitled, “After death: Washington state set to become the first to allow human composting.”

That’s right. “Seattleites will likely soon have a unique option to remember their loved ones after they die. Washington state is set to become the first to allow “natural organic reduction” as a burial alternative — commonly referred to as human composting — as a bill legalizing the process was approved by the legislature and now heads to Gov. Jay Inslee’s desk.”

“Democratic Sen. Jamie Pedersen of Seattle sponsored the bill because he said it makes sense — it’s a low environmental impact way to dispose of remains. ‘We can show the way for the world about a better way in dealing with this universal human experience,’ Pedersen said in a tweet. …composting bodies could allow for the deceased to give back. The process will turn a body into soil within weeks.”

Katrina Spade, CEO of Recompose, said that, “Americans are largely faced with two options after death: cremation and burial. Burial takes up a lot of space, and those buried can own their plots forever, which is not sustainable. Cremation releases greenhouse gases and particulates. But composting bodies could allow for the deceased to give back.

Now, to help save the planet, instead of burying or cremating grandma, you can have her ground up and made into compost. What a great and enlightened idea. read more
