WND Exclusive – The Dems opened the crazies’ box, now it’s too late to shut it

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

The left figured out decades ago that anger and division were their friends and the only way to prevail against common sense and an individual’s self-interest.

For decades the left has been able to just crack open Pandora’s radical leftist box. They’ve successfully been able to allow just enough crazy out while sitting on the lid of the box, thus maintaining control of their lunatic fringe.

The Democrats, with the help of their fellow travelers in the media, have for so long been able to control their crazies by placating them with endless promises and granting them a seat at the Democratic table, even if it is just the kids table.

But like the climate, things change. They must.

In their arrogance, their hubris, the Dems wrongly assumed that because they had the strength to hold the box’s lid shut in the past, it will always be this way. read more

Video Podcast – Our Public Education System is Beyond Repair

by: Brent Smith

It’s time for us all to admit that THE public school system is broken beyond repair. And I guess that’s only half right. It is beyond repair, but it’s not broken – it’s infested. We can never return to a time when public schools simply taught the 3 R’s.

And the fault lies squarely on the teachers unions.

It’s taken a couple of generations, but here we are. In case you’re unaware, a generation is considered about 20-30 years, so it’s actually about right on time – like it was formulated or planned back in the sixties – because it was. And it really couldn’t have happened any sooner than this.

It took the first generation of children to watch, learn and buy into this new Marxist counter-culture. Then they grew up to become the academics of today, replacing the older, more reasonable teachers.

The teachers union is no longer just a “collective” bargaining tool. It’s a hammer wielded by radicals. read more

The problem with supercars, is there’s always a crowd. During the several days I had with the 2020 McLaren 570S, our only alone time as a couple was in my tight, tiny garage. Once that garage door opened and the car was backed into the driveway, it was only a matter of minutes before people started showing up. Just pulling into the fuel station to add go-juice to the car meant half an hour of photo taking and answering questions. It gets brutal. read more

For Sale – Australian Bubble House

Eleven interconnecting domes
Eleven interconnecting domes make up this unique house
First National Real Estate

A truly unique piece of Australian real estate is up for grabs. Architect Graham Birchall’s personal home, based around a series of 11 intersecting bubble domes, has gone up for sale in Ipswich, Queensland.

Birchall built the home in the 1980s as a study of the adaptable nature of spheres. The domes range in diameter from 4 to 8 meters (13.1 to 26.2 ft), and give the whole building a unique look. Some of the bubbles look distinctly like eyeballs, and that’s because of the remote-controlled iris-like window shades; to help build these windows Birchall actually emailed NASA to ask for some design drawings of the Mars Rover, which they supplied. read more

Some More Happy Covid Related news from Denver

from Conservative Review:

In 2 weeks in Denver, more people died of heart attacks in lockdown than of coronavirus

Something uncanny happens when the government exaggerates the threat level of one particular virus and tells people they must stay home. People get scared and stay home … even when they are having a heart attack. A new study indicates that more people might have died at home from untreated heart attacks for fear of coming to hospitals than from coronavirus in Denver, Colorado. This would be yet another example of the man-made plague of lockdown and fear causing more deaths than the virus itself. read more

Oh the Horror! Black Democrat Endorses Trump for President

by: Brent Smith

But you’d never know it by doing a Google search.

So Georgia democrat Vernon Jones Spoke at the Republican National Convention and actually endorsed president Trump. Wowser!!

This will drive the left insane. A Black democrat, abandoning the leftist plantation?
How dare he.

And the left absolutely does not want you to know that he was at the convention, that he endorsed Trump and why, and quite frankly they don’t even want you to know who he is.

And how can I make such a bold statement about the left?

Easy – if you want to acquire the pulse of the radical left, just look to see what their propaganda department has released.

And by propaganda department, I mean the democrats wholly owned affiliates in the main stream media and the interweb.

Let me illuminate. read more
