At 8pm on Saturday August 25, one of the greatest heavyweight contests in history took place. It didn’t take place in a boxing ring or an octagonal cage, but on the Monterey auction block of RM-Sothebys, the collectible car auction company that has sold more elite automobiles than any other company in the world over the last decade. The contest was for the ownership of the world’s most coveted collectible car – a Ferrari 250 GTO. read more

The left is in meltdown over president Trump exercising his constitutional authority to revoke ex-CIA Chief John Brennan’s security clearance.

CNN reported that former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper was incensed by Trump’s action. Naturally it was CNN who reported it. After all, Clapper is one of their employees, as are a number of other Obama ex-intelligence hacks. read more

Should Trigger Warnings be Required on all Conservative Correspondence, Writings, Podcasts, Broadcasts and Classroom Syllabuses

Recently the College Fix found a conservative college professor.

I will expand on this, but I’d like that first sentence to sink in a bit – a conservative college professor. They are as rare as the critically endangered northern hairy nosed wombat, of which there are only 163 known.

Now that I think about it, there may be more northern hairy nosed wombats.

But the College Fix found one. His name is Professor Duke Pesta. He’s an English professor at the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh. And how about that name – “Duke.” He has to be conservative.

About a year and a half ago, Duke felt the need to draft a two-page contract, “to counter the trend of infantilizing college students when it comes to academic debate and the free exchange of ideas on campus.”

His class involves the study of literature from days gone by, and as such, may contain content that today’s students may find offensive. read more

Republicans Must Get Behind Jim Jordan for Speaker

from Conservative Review:

To turn America back toward freedom, Jim Jordan for speaker

If the Republicans win in November, there is no question that Jim Jordan should be speaker of the House.

Jordan is a founder of the House Freedom Caucus. Somehow, though, operatives and the media have cast aspersions on the House Freedom Caucus, letting their annoyance be known every time the caucus acts for more liberty. But is freedom some sort of annoyance, or is it all that we live for? read more

Video Podcast – Apologies to Immigrants – Take a Knee

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Let’s talk about another example of democrat symbolism over substance.

California state legislators passed a resolution demanding that president Trump and Congress apologize for separating families at the border. But would an apology be just a first step to something more?

A federal district court judge, administering the oath of citizenship, tells the new Americans to “take a knee” in protest. Yes, that’s what a citizen wants hear. Welcome to America new citizen. Too bad the country you chose is so awful. read more

Let us Praise the Hawaiian Price Gougers

This is another lesson in Economics 101. And one that the government should meddle in. I discussed this very topic last year in a video podcast. You may view it here. It’s in segment 2 which begins at about minute 19:25. Or you read my article regarding the same here.

from IBD:

‘Price Gouging’ In Hawaii Should Be Thanked, Not Cursed

Hawaii has taken a hit from Hurricane Lane, with an estimated 40 inches of rain and flooding in several areas. It’s an old story: Already, claims of price gouging for everything from propane to airline tickets have emerged. Should Hawaiians curse the gougers? No, they should thank them.

That might seem strange, but it’s true.

First off, let’s concede there are no doubt businesses that are technically breaking Hawaii’s anti-emergency gouging laws, which forbid stores from raising prices on food, water, ice, gasoline, cooking fuel, batteries and generators, chemicals or building materials during a declared disaster or emergency. read more

Samsung S10 Screen Can Repair Itself

Samsung is thought to be releasing its flagship handset the S10 in 2019 and a patent application suggests it may be fitted with a futuristic self-healing screen.

The revolutionary display would be able to fix any cracks or scratches on the screen without the owner needing to do anything.

According to a patent filed with the World Intellectual Property Organisation, the screen will also be impervious to any scuffs, scratches and fingerprint marks.

The technology has been teased in small doses before and the patent also mentions the possibility of it being applied to ‘flexible devices’ which could open the door for foldable phones.

Here’s the Latest Poop from San Francisco

from the Blaze:

San Francisco launches new ‘Poop Patrol’ to clean up human feces. Here’s the price tag.

On Thursday’s episode of “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn said that California’s “crappy” policies are yielding some literally crappy results.

“In just one week last month, the city of San Francisco logged over 16,000 complaintsof human poop on the streets,” he reported. “Let me say that again. Sixteen thousandpeople called the city and went — ‘There’s somebody crapping in the street in front of my house’ — in 7 days.” read more

Rather Have a Holographic Wife?

A Japanese firm is hoping a tiny holographic girl could take the place of a wife.

Called Aizuma Hikari, the tiny holographic anime girl that stands just a few inches tall inside of a cylindrical projector.

Japanese tech firm Gatebox says the system is able to communicate with its owners, called ‘masters’, through speakers and even an app.

The Tokyo-based firm says it is aimed at ‘single men who live alone’.

The system has just begun mass production for 150,000 yen (US$1,352). The holographic character stands 8 inches tall and talks to her 'husband' from behind a cylindrical plastic barrier.
