At the Army-Navy football game last week, cadets were caught playing the “circle game” on national television. An official investigation by West Point confirms it was indeed the “circle game” and not a “white power” symbol as many media outlets reported.
I discuss why they needed to “investigate” this silly incident in the first place, all to appease the perpetually offended left.
It’s been reported that “Hundreds of Municipalities from One State Declare Themselves 2nd Amendment Sanctuaries.”
The democrat Virginia Attorney General insists that these sanctuaries cannot nullify state laws, but of course the leftist that he is, can’t comprehend the supremacy of the Constitution and the Amendments contained therein. read more
You know our country is in deep doo-doo when a magazine named Christianity makes the conscious and public choice to side with the radical leftists – the democrat party, and against president Trump, by repeating the tired old fable that Trump pressured the Ukrainian President to investigate the Biden crime family.
But sadly they did, and in doing so, they’ve also dragged the good name of the magazine’s founder, Rev. Billy Graham into this nonsense.
It seems leftist politics is permeating everything and Christianity magazine, and it’s editor-in-chief Mark Galli, should be ashamed to convict the president in the court of public opinion, or worse, for kow-towing to the left out of a sense of fear.

UPDATED: ‘Profoundly immoral’: Christianity Today asserts Trump ‘should be removed from office’
The evangelical magazine founded by the Rev. Billy Graham called President Trump’s phone call to the Ukrainian president “profoundly immoral” and called for him to be removed from office. read more
Could plastic waste one day provide a key ingredient for zero-emission transport?
Nanyang Technological University
Our plastic waste problem is a large one, and it’s only getting larger. This is a huge environmental problem that requires some big picture thinking, but scientists are also exploring more subtle ways of chipping away at it and that includes turning plastic waste into sources of fuel. New research out of Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University (NTU) has thrown another interesting possibility into the mix, with scientists converting consumer plastic into a chemical used to to produce electricity in hydrogen fuel cells by exposing it to sunlight.
If the Nancy Pelosi and the House ends up formally sending there bogus Articles of Impeachment to the Senate for trial, what may happen? Rumor has it that the Mitch McConnell and the majority Republicans in the Senate may just dismiss the charges.
Regardless of how we all feel, the Senate should, at the very least, acquit Trump on both charges and I discuss the reasons why. read more
Sorry folks, but what ever happened to president Trump never again signing another pork-laden Omnibus government spending bill? This thing is an absolute disaster and gives to the democrats, practically everything they want.
from Conservative Review:
If Trump signs omnibus bills, he’ll lose his last legislative leverage

It’s become an annual ritual before Christmas. Both parties, despite the fake wrestling of soap opera politics, come together to increase spending and add special interest policy riders into a 2,000-page omnibus bill dropped hours before a vote is conducted, while nothing in the bill addresses the core challenges of our time that matter most to the citizenry. This occurs whether Republicans control one, two, or all three branches of the legislative process. read more
Although the ship was christened today, Kennedy won’t join the fleet until the 2020s.
On Saturday, the daughter of former President John F. Kennedy presided over the christening ceremony for America’s newest aircraft carrier. Former first daughter Caroline Kennedy, swinging a magnum bottle of champagne, dedicated the second aircraft carrier named after her father, a former naval officer who served during World War II. read more
Fill your breathing tank by basic swimming motions
There’s a lot of ground between puttering around with your face strapped to a snorkel and managing the dangers, equipment, certification and expenses of scuba diving. Surface-supplied diving systems fill some of this space by strapping you to a breathing hose that plunges deeper than a snorkel but without some of the complications of scuba. Typically these systems rely on some form of compressed air, but a new prototype from Austria uses a more sustainable air supply: you. The ExoLung translates the diver’s swimming motions into air movement, keeping breathing air flowing so long as the diver keeps swimming.
Like other surface-supplied diving systems, the ExoLung has a buoy that floats on the surface of the water, serving both as a safety restraint and air intake. A hose connects the buoy with the water bell worn on the front of the torso. Inside the bell’s hardshell body, a collapsible water bladder is attached to leg straps that secure around the diver’s feet.
As the diver extends his or her legs, the straps pull the bladder, sucking in air as water is pushed out. Upon leg compression, the straps relax and water pressure fills the bladder back into the hardshell body, compressing the air for inhalation.
Other surface-supplied and portable breathing hardware that fills the gap between snorkelling and scuba diving is limited by the constraints of battery power or compressed air tanks. The Indiegogo-funded AirBuddy system advertises up to 45 minutes of lithium battery power, while the cylinder-supplied Scorkl breathing mask that hit crowdfunding around the same time in 2017 offers only 10 minutes.
