Our bodies have powerful built-in defenses in the form of the immune system, but sometimes it needs an extra push. Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T cell therapy involves reprogramming T-cells to hunt down cancer, which has been effective against blood cancers but not so much against solid tumors. Now, scientists at MIT have found a way to supercharge the technique with a vaccine booster. read more

Illegal Alien MS-13 Gang Members Indicted

While democrats like Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) are concerned with ridding us of the term “illegal alien,” here’s what’s happening in the real world.

from Conservative Review:

19 of 22 indicted for ultra-violent MS-13 murders are illegal aliens from Central America

When James Madison said the jobs of the federal government were “few and defined,” applied “principally on external objects,” he was referring to exactly what has been brought into California from Central America. Yesterday, in what should be the biggest new story of the day, California and federal law enforcement wrapped up an MS-13 task force investigation, completing the indictment of 22 MS-13 members from a particularly brutal cell responsible for numerous gruesome murders. The operation began last year with the arrest of 18 members of MS-13’s “Fulton clique,” culminating with the arrest of the final four in recent days, according to the 78-page indictment. read more

Weapon Wednesday – Chuck Norris has a New Show!

Chuck Norris is a man of many skills, both real and mythical. We’re definitely sure he’s a decorated Air Force veteran, a martial arts master, an accomplished actor, and a sage philosopher. And we’re pretty sure he once beat the sun in a staring contest, punched a cyclops between the eye, uppercutted a horse and created giraffes, and counted to infinity—twice. Now we can add HISTORY host to his ever-expanding résumé. read more

Self-Hating Jewish Group Sponsored by the Worst Self-Hating Jew of Them All

The only thing worse than a liberal self-hating Jew, is a group of liberal self-hating Jews. And worse still, when two self-hating Jewish groups merge into one and then prefer to defend the anti-Semitic crew of freshman congresswomen over a man who calls them out of their hatred of Israel. And in the case of at least two of the four, the virulent hatred of all Jews. Of course, this is a requirement of all Islamists.

from NewsBusters:

Soros-backed Group Throws Fit Over Senator ‘Weaponizing Anti-Semitism’ Against Anti-Semites

Left-wing group Bend the Arc: Jewish Action went on a Twitter rampage over Sen. Lindsey Graham’s, (R-SC), criticism of a group of freshman legislators as anti-Semitic.

Bend the Arc is the result of a merger of The Progressive Jewish Alliance and Jewish Funds for Justice which joined forces in 2011. It was founded and funded by George Soros’ son Alexander Soros. read more

New Method of Graphene Production

Incredibly thin, flexible, strong and electrically conductive, graphene has the potential to revolutionize electronics and materials. One of the main hurdles though is that it’s tricky to manufacture on large scales. Now researchers at the University of Rochester have recruited bacteria to make the stuff, which is cheaper and faster than current methods and doesn’t require harsh chemicals. read more

We Could Learn from Trump’s Dealing with the Marxist Four

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Everyone is talking about what a bully Donald Trump is to the poor female congress people of color. Oh the hand-wringing by the left and the spineless establishment right. I can still hear the echoes of the tisk-tisk of utter disappointment and disapproval from the likes of Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo at CNN, as the sophomoric left opines about civility and restraint. They never practice it. They just preach to us about it.

There they were – four patriotic American congresswomen, just minding their own business, talking about normal stuff that Americans talk about. You know, like how our border agents are monsters who torture innocent immigrants by making them sleep in cages and drink out of toilets. And generally how crappy America is and how poorly people of color, especially women are treated.

And they would sure know – all four – AOC, Omar, Tlaib and Pressley, being “of color.” And all four, being so oppressed and all, only managed to make it to the third highest elected office in the entire nation. The Senate and the Presidency are the only offices to eclipse them. read more

New Molecule May Starve Cancer Cells

Too often the surgical removal of cancer or its elimination through chemo or radiotherapy isn’t the end of the story, but where do the relapses come from? Part of the explanation may lay in what are known as cancer stem cells, which could be thought of as little seedlings that hide away in the body’s tissues until they feel the time is right to return to action. A newly discovered molecule has raised hopes of cutting these crafty critters off at the source, with early experiments demonstrating how it can latch onto cancer stem cells and starve them of what they need to survive. read more

Video Podcast – Lower Courts are Lawless on Illegal Immigration

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

For years, I and others have been railing at the courts for consistently overstepping their constitutional authority on any number of issues. It’s the reason we conservatives insist that we don’t need anymore frickin laws. I mean, what’s the difference how many laws Congress passes, if the courts aren’t going to follow them anyway. They don’t follow the old laws. Why would they follow any new ones?

David Horowitz wrote that, “The far-Left Democrats are trying to build momentum to abolish ICE and all enforcement of our sovereignty. Politically, it would take them 100 years to accomplish this goal, if ever. But the lower courts are doing it for them overnight with no pushback from the other branches of government.”

I discuss how and why this happens at that the only to solve it is for the two branches to pushback and nullify the lower courts rulings, injunctions, etc. read more

Banks are Caving to AOC’s Idiocy

from the American Spectator:

Big Banks Cave to Pressure From AOC

SunTrust, a bank holding company centered in the southeastern U.S., announced on Monday that it will terminate its business relationship with CoreCivic, a leading American private prison and detention center company. The announcement was accompanied by a statement claiming that SunTrust’s decision was “made after extensive consideration of the views of our stakeholders on this deeply complex issue.”

SunTrust is the fourth major bank to exit the private corrections industry, following Bank of America in late June and JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo in March. These U.S. financial institutions ignore their contractual obligations in favor of tailoring their business dealings to the whims of progressives in Congress.

Automatic Landing Systems for Small Airports

Big commercial aircraft are already routinely guided in for automatic landings at large airports, as their autopilot follows radio signals transmitted by ground-based antennas. Such auto-landings currently aren’t possible at most small airports, although that could be about to change, thanks to a new German-designed system. read more
