WND Exclusive – Time to choose: Marxism or Capitalism

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

We on the right continue to debate which general election foe will be the easiest for President Trump to defeat.

Is it Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden?

But the way things are going, the question is becoming moot. The Democratic establishment has once again begun to circle the wagons against a perceived threat. And once again that threat is communist Bernie Sanders.

And as an aside, can we finally drop the “Sanders is a socialist” nonsense?

The conventional wisdom is that the Democrats are, for the second cycle in a row, trying to take out Bernie the Red Sanders. read more

Video Podcast – Cashless due to Covid-19 – I Agree with Michael Moore

by: Brent Smith

It seems the coronavirus is not only forcing people into quarantine, but money too.

China has begun quarantining dirty cash, and sanitizing it, fearing that cash can also spread the virus. Our own Federal Reserve is following suit for dollars that it repatriates from Asia before recirculating them in the US financial system.

This may lead us to become cashless, which is dangerous for a free society.

Michael Moore is claiming that the democrat hack establishment is once again preventing his man, Bernie Sanders, from obtaining the party nomination.

And he’s right – and that scares me. Not that a communist is being denied the nomination, but that I agree with Michael Moore. read more

Senate GOP Still Hearts the Green Agenda

from Conservative Review:

Horowitz: Senate pushing bipartisan green energy social engineering bill

While there is no bipartisan clamor to use GOP Senate control to force votes on sanctuary cities, there is a rush to pass a bipartisan bill dumping more money into green energy programs. Some might have thought we were done with the green energy venture socialism after the Obama era of Solyndra scandals, but in Washington, both parties are addicted to corporate welfare. Hence the rush to pass S. 2657, the American Energy Innovation Act.

It’s hard to call this bill bipartisan, given that the lead GOP sponsor is Sen. Lisa Murkowski. Yet even after voting against Kavanaugh and flirting with support for impeachment, she seems to control the Senate floor agenda more than anyone pushing the Trump agenda on immigration. read more

Could Have Had a Coronavirus Vaccine

from NBC:

Scientists were close to a coronavirus vaccine years ago. Then the money dried up.

“We just could not generate much interest,” a researcher said of the difficulty in getting funding to test the vaccine in humans.

HOUSTON — Dr. Peter Hotez says he made the pitch to anyone who would listen. After years of research, his team of scientists in Texas had helped develop a vaccine to protect against a deadly strain of coronavirus. Now they needed money to begin testing it in humans. read more

Don’t Panic Over Coronavirus – Lessons Learned

from the Federalist:

8 Valuable Lessons From China About How To Contain The Coronavirus

Freedom of expression and a free press are essential to everyone’s health and safety. That’s the most valuable lesson we should take away from the coronavirus epidemic.

The recent coronavirus outbreak, which sprouted within China in December, has now stagnated the world’s second-largest economy for more than a month. Since then, the virus has spread to more than 50 countries across six continents, all except Antarctica. The World Health Organization declared the virus a “global threat” and urged countries to prepare.

The medical journal JAMA published a paper last week, titled “Characteristics of and Important Lessons From the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Outbreak in China.” Its data was based on the 72,314 cases reported by Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Since China has the largest number of infected patients and death, this paper provides some valuable insights and lessons. read more

Here’s an idea for a beach house with a difference, courtesy of Brooklyn-based Studio Vural. Named Dune House, the home would be built into the beach rather than on it like you might expect, and would run off-the-grid with solar panels and wind turbines. read more

On the Verge of Pandemic, Court Effectively Opens Border

Imagine you are a liberal judge on the federal bench. You know that the entire political system, which includes all three branches of government and both political parties, vests you with unlimited power to dictate policy with an injunction. Regardless of the law, Constitution, rules of standing for a judicial case, past and recent Supreme Court precedent, political fallout, or national security consequences, you can declare an opinion and have that policy unquestionably become “the law of the land.” Why wouldn’t you try your hand at being a judicial version of Kim Jong-un?

At some point, we should stop blaming the judges for legislating with impunity and start blaming the other branches for not only ceding that power, but actively giving effect to the judges’ usurpations of law.

  • West Point pre-med students are doing research that could lead to the 3D printing of “bio bandages” and small body parts.
  • So-called “bio printers” could print things such as bone cartilage and blood vessels the same way regular 3D printers print solid objects.
  • The research is still in the early phases but could have applications for soldiers wounded in battle. read more

Biden Follows in the Footsteps of Greatness

by: Brent Smith

Everyone is either mortified or yukking it up over Lunchbox Joe Biden’s latest “supposed” gaffe.

He was at a Super Tuesday, or as Joe refers to it as Super Thursday, campaign event in Texas when he took to reciting the Declaration of Independence.

As we all know, The Declaration of Independence reads: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Joe, answering some question, took it upon himself to recite this passage. “We hold these truths to be self-evident,” the former vice president said.

So far so good – right?

He then added: that “All men and women created by — you know, you know, the thing.” read more

In calling for sharp hand-eye coordination, alertness and quick reflexes, pingpong (or table tennis to its more serious practitioners) has come to be seen as a useful therapy for a number of ailments, in particular Alzheimer’s, dementia and those associated with the brain. Researchers in Japan have turned their eye to its potential to treat symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, with a six-month preliminary study pointing to significant improvements in the participant’s ability to carry out a variety of everyday tasks.
