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.

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

Being Black and Christian doesn’t Fit In with National Women’s Soccer Team

When the choice is between one of best female soccer players in America and wearing a gay pride jersey, the National Women’s Soccer team chose the jersey. And did I mention that the player is black? Interestingly, there were no cries of racism from anyone on the woke left.

The absence of one of the best women’s soccer players in the nation from the national squad that just won the World Cup has prompted questions as to whether she didn’t make the team because of her openly professed Christian faith.

Jaelene Hinkle, 26, “has been called the top left defender in the U.S. game,” according to The Washington TimesFox News noted Hinkle “helped her team win the NWSL championship and previously helped it win a title in 2016 when it was known as the Western New York Flash.” read more

Since the first true wireless earphones launched in 2014, many more have appeared in the marketplace – including models by big players like Appleand recent additions from Phiaton and Cambridge Audio. But most only offer passive isolation from the world around you. Sony’s upcoming WF-1000XM3 earphones rock the company’s excellent active noise cancellation tech so that you can focus on the music. read more

What’s Good for the Prez, is Good for the Radical

A three judge panel of the 2nd district Court of Appeals upheld a lower court ruling that President Trump cannot block his Twitter followers just because they post critical or divisive comments. I agree. The president uses his @RealDonaldTrump account for public and policy statements – not just for personal issues as a private citizen. As he uses this public forum for government business, blocking the public would be in violation of the followers’ First Amendment rights.

That being “settled,” it will be interesting if leftist radical Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is treated the same, as a lawsuit was recently filed to force AOC to unblock those who have been critical of her.

U.S. ARMY

The entrance to the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Systems Center is busy and confusing. Based on how much the soldier at the gate my Uber driver and I pulled up to was shouting at us, we were not doing a great job of navigating that entrance. But after a few phone calls and with the help of our escort for the day, I was finally on my way down the long path to the correct building.

Natick is an Army base where the military scientists at the forefront of the development of food systems for all of the armed forces (as well as NASA!) are developing new technologies like sonic agglomeration, vacuum microwave drying, and sonic swab technology. The part of Natick I wanted to visit is a warehouse full of super-cool machines that will potentially help our soldiers be able to do their jobs better, by feeding them foods that are packed with calories, nutrients, and flavor, but without weighing a ton or taking up much space. read more

South Bend Looking More Like South Chicago Under Buttigieg

from the Washington Free Beacon:

South Bend’s Violent Crime Continues to Skyrocket Under Buttigieg

Violent crime has risen year-on-year since Buttigieg took office

South Bend, Indiana, has seen a dramatic increase in violent crime since Mayor Pete Buttigieg took office 2012, raising doubts about his ability to govern the city of 100,000.

Despite multiple promises and data-driven solutions from Buttigieg, a comprehensive look at South Bend’s official crime data reveals a systemic problem throughout his tenure. Data submitted by the South Bend police department to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting system are available through 2017; figures on 2018 and the first four months of 2019 were released in the public minutes of the South Bend Board of Public Safety meeting.* read more

Kamala Harris Spins a Yarn

Despite many leftist outlets attempting to spin Kamala Harris’s tale of busing practically “saving her life,” or some such nonsense, what she said on the debate stage, could be classified as a gross exaggeration, if not an outright lie. Either way, she owes Uncle Joe and the American people an apology. Neither he nor we will get one. That’s just not how Kamala rolls.

Here are the facts.

Fact Check: Kamala Harris Exaggerates Her History on Busing

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) enjoyed a standout moment in the second night of the 2020 Democratic presidential debate on Thursday when she attacked former Vice President Joe Biden on the issue of federal mandated busing to racially integrate schools. Harris repeated a powerful talking point about why the issue is personal for her, with the memorable tagline: “That little girl was me.” read more
