Project Veritas Exposes Zucker and CNN

James O’Keefe of Project Veritas just released a new video exposing CNN as exactly what we all thought they were – all Trump, all the time. And worse, he has the video and audio that proves that not all CNN employees are on board. Many actually long for the good old days when all they did was report the news – when they actually sent news crews out to cover stories.

It’s a fascinating look inside the belly of the anti-Trump beast, and confirms that the 24/7 anti-Trump coverage does comes from the top – from CEO Jeff Zucker.

And frankly, at times, I found myself feeling a bit sorry for some of the CNN employees.

It’s a real eye-opener. Enjoy the video: read more

Indestructible Tardigrade – the Key to Radiation Shielding

Rendering of a tardigrade, considered the toughest animal on Earth
Rendering of a tardigrade, considered the toughest animal on Earth

It takes something truly extraordinary, like maybe the death of the Sun, to kill the near-indestructible invertebrate known as the tardigrade. Crash-landings on the Moon, a lack of oxygen and conditions in the darkest corners of the ocean don’t appear pose a threat to this critter’s livelihood. Scientists studying these so-called water bears have uncovered a neat trick they employ to endure inhospitable conditions, using a unique protein to generate protective clouds around their DNA. read more

What to do About the National Debt

Brian Riedl for Prager University discusses the national debt – the fact that every year, like clockwork, it continues to grow.

No matter who is in the White House or who controls Congress and the Senate doesn’t seem to matter at all. Deficit spending continues to grow and the national debt continues to balloon.

And no one seems to care. read more

Truth is No Longer Reality

If you’ve ever spoken at length to a liberal, no doubt this has come up. It’s a relatively term, known as speaking one’s truth. Oh, it doesn’t have to be “the truth.” It rarely is. But somehow, that no longer seems to matter. I’ve personally been told that there is my truth, your truth and the truth.

There’s a head-scratcher!

Philosophy professor Paul Copan, for Prager University, discusses this very topic in the following video: read more

Another Corporation Bows to Its Chinese Master

from Human Events:

Kowtowing to China, Blizzard Style

Corporate wokeness is a sham that collapses in the face of actual tyranny

“Every voice matters,” according to Activision-Blizzard; that is, unless you use that voice to show support for Hong Kong.

Hong Kong-based professional video game player Chung “Blitzchung” Ng Wai learned this the hard way when he said the words, “Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our times” following his win at the Hearthstone Grandmasters tournament in Taiwan. Blizzard banned him in response.

Chung was quickly silenced. Activision-Blizzard, the publisher of HearthstoneOverwatch, and Call of Duty, cut off the interview and scrubbed the recording. The company fired both of the casters responsible for interviewing Chung, rescinded his prize money, and banned him from the professional circuit for a year. read more

Latest Diabetes Microcapsule

Diabetics may soon be able to take their insulin orally
Diabetics may soon be able to take their insulin orally

Earlier this year we covered a blueberry-sized capsule developed by researchers at MIT that would allow diabetics to take their insulin orally rather than by injection. That capsule contained microneedles to deliver the hormone through the stomach lining. Now, the same team has gone a step further, developing a new capsule that would survive a trip through the stomach and deliver its payload to the lining of the small intestine. read more

WND Exclusive – How Trump can help more people dump the Democrats

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

A guy called into Rush Limbaugh this past Tuesday. He was a retired college professor who is done with the Democrats. He voted Democrat his entire life until 2016 when he pulled the lever for Trump.

Basically, he wised up to the lies of the Democratic Party and became a conservative. And unlike some Republicans, he liked the way Trump fought back against the left and threw it right back at them.

He said he was definitely done with the lying Democrats, but he also voiced his frustration with Trump, which Rush didn’t seem to understand. Well, I for one understood exactly what the professor meant, because it’s the same way many conservatives feel. read more

Jupiter has long held the honor of the planet in the solar system with the most moons – or at least, that’s what we thought. Now its smaller sibling Saturn has stolen the crown, as astronomers have discovered no less than 20 new moons around the ringed planet. That brings its total to 82, three more than Jupiter. read more
