MILREM
  • The Type X drone is a new robotic combat vehicle (RCV) equipped with either an 25 or 30-millimeter auto cannon or anti-tank missiles.
  • Inexpensive and semi-expendable, RCVs hold the key to the future of land warfare.
  • In the future, Army ground forces will consist of human/RCV vehicles and even some unmanned RCV formations. read more

There’s No Reasoning with Some Radicals

Give them an inch and they’ll take 500 miles! These fools will never be satisfied. There’s no longer any point in trying to rationally discuss the topic of race, when Lincoln isn’t even good enough.

from the Blaze:

Univ. of Wisconsin students want Lincoln statue removed: Sure, he was ‘anti-slavery,’ but he wasn’t ‘pro-Black’

No statue is safe

A student group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is calling for the school to remove its popular Abraham Lincoln statue, saying the president who is known as the “Great Emancipator” is a symbol of racism. read more

Twenty Percent of Alzheimer’s Patients may be Misdiagnosed

Quadruple misfolded proteins, or QMP, refers to the presence of four separate kinds of toxic protein accumulations
Quadruple misfolded proteins, or QMP, refers to the presence of four separate kinds of toxic protein accumulations

Scientists are already struggling to make headway in the fight against dementia, and the discovery of a new more aggressive form of neurodegeneration that’s often misdiagnosed as Alzheimer’s disease further complicates the problem.

A new study from the University of Kentucky has described a novel form of dementia characterized by the toxic accumulation of four different proteins in the brain. The research suggests many patients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease may be suffering from this different, and more complex, neurodegenerative condition. read more

A Tribute to Dr. Thomas Sowell

Happy 90th Birthday to one of my heroes and a true patriot!!

from Walter E. Williams:

An Underappreciated American Scholar

Dr. Thomas Sowell has been both a friend and a colleague of mine for over a half-century. On June 30, he will have completed his 90th year of life, and I want to highlight some important features of that life. Sowell was born in Gastonia, North Carolina, in 1930. As part of the great black migration northward during the 1930s and ’40s, he and his family moved to Harlem, New York. Sowell attended the prestigious Stuyvesant High School but dropped out. In 1951, he was drafted into the military and assigned to the U.S. Marine Corps where he became a photographer. Photography remains his hobby today. read more

Levin is Right (Again) – He is a Disgrace

In one respect, this kind of isn’t news – or at the very least, nothing new. John Roberts has been an enemy of the Constitution for years. My opinion is that he is more of a political animal than a judge.

from the Daily Caller:

‘He’s A Disgrace’: Conservatives Turn On Chief Justice Roberts

  • Conservatives are turning against Chief Justice John Roberts after the Supreme Court justice sided with liberal judges in a monumental abortion ruling.
  • Roberts sided with liberal members of the Court in the close 5-4 ruling, saying “the Louisiana law imposes a burden on access to abortion just as severe as that imposed by the Texas law, for the same reasons.”
  • “Roberts has destroyed any credibility the Court may have had,” tweeted talk show host Mark Levin. “He’s a disgrace.”

Conservatives are turning against Chief Justice John Roberts after the Supreme Court justice sided with liberal judges in a monumental abortion ruling.

Roberts sided with liberal members of the Court in the close 5-4 ruling, writing that “the Louisiana law imposes a burden on access to abortion just as severe as that imposed by the Texas law, for the same reasons.”

Pro-lifers and conservatives alike had anxiously awaited Roberts’s decision on the landmark abortion ruling, worrying that Roberts might side with the liberal justices based on his votes earlier in June. read more

Killing Tumors

Microscopic bubbles could form part of a potent new cancer treatment, according to results from a new study that combines them with ultrasound to blast apart tumor cells
Microscopic bubbles could form part of a potent new cancer treatment, according to results from a new study that combines them with ultrasound to blast apart tumor cells

Lately we’ve seen an exciting string of research projects demonstrate how ultrasound can be harnessed to fight cancer, whether that be by helping drugs cross the blood-brain barrier, heating and destroying tissue in prostate cancers, or selectively killing tumor cells while leaving healthy ones unharmed. Adding to this burgeoning potential is a new study that combines ultrasound with microbubbles, which can be blasted apart like a “targeted warhead” to destroy the majority of tumor cells in breast cancer models. read more

WND Exclusive – What your doctor might not know about coronavirus

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

This is a real departure for me, as it is not my usual fight against the left or an oppressive government.

However, it’s not that far off, as it is a battle to educate the ignorant, which is what we conservatives strive to do.

And let’s face it. COVID-19 has become as big a political problem for freedom lovers as a medical issue.

This all began with my personal quest to be administered a COVID-19 serology test. I have yet to find anyone to administer the test.

As you may (or may not) know, there are two types of coronavirus tests – a virology test and a serology test. The virology test is to determine whether you currently have the SARS-CoV-2 virus. read more

Video Podcast – Stupid Stuff Woke Leaders Do – Morons Topple Statues

by: Brent Smith

The town of Duluth Minnesota decided to remove the term “Chief” from town titles. Gee, I wonder why?

Comrade Mayor de Blasio tells contract tracers NOT to ask people if they’ve attended a BLM protest/riot. Again – I wonder why?

Leftist morons deface, behead and tear down statues of slaves and anti-slavery activist – because they are morons and don’t know the first thing about history.

Yet with all this destruction – one statue remains standing and unmolested. Guess Who? read more

It’s Time for the President to Lead … NOW!

Horowitz: America or Afghanistan? The growing danger to truckers on America’s roads

This is a violent insurgency

It’s the type of nightmare we never envisioned even under a Democrat presidency. Truckers on the nation’s highways and streets now face a serious threat of being surrounded by a mob or potentially dragged out of their trucks and beaten, reminiscent of grisly images we’ve seen in other parts of the world. Where is the Trump administration’s plan to protect the nation’s truckers from the anarchist mobs? read more

Georgia Tech’s Supernova Machine

Using a new "supernova machine," researchers can study the formation of nebulae, such as the Little Ghost Nebula pictured here

NGC 6369 is also known as the Little Ghost Nebula, because in smaller telescopes it appears ghostly and faded. Using Hubble, astronomers can resolve far more detail.

Supernovae are some of the most energetic events in the universe, and the resulting nebulas are a favorite for stargazers. To better understand the physics behind them, researchers at Georgia Tech have created a “supernova machine” in the lab. read more
