Video Podcast – Supreme Court Overstep – Marvel’s New Superheroes

by: Brent Smith

The supreme Court has decided, because it feels like it, to once again overstep it’s constitutionally authorized duties and grant deported aliens the right of a new challenge to their original deportation.

22 years after a Columbian national was deported for a major drug offense the Supremes have decided he should get a new hearing. Sounds reasonable – right?

Marvel Comics has gone full P.C. with their latest superhero additions.

You may to be seated for this one. And also wrapping your head in duck tape to prevent losing any portion may be in order. read more

Could Have Had a Coronavirus Vaccine

from NBC:

Scientists were close to a coronavirus vaccine years ago. Then the money dried up.

“We just could not generate much interest,” a researcher said of the difficulty in getting funding to test the vaccine in humans.

HOUSTON — Dr. Peter Hotez says he made the pitch to anyone who would listen. After years of research, his team of scientists in Texas had helped develop a vaccine to protect against a deadly strain of coronavirus. Now they needed money to begin testing it in humans. read more

WND Exclusive – Did 1619 Project Inspire Those who Defaced Plymouth Rock?

from Brent for World Net Daily:

Last Monday, several landmarks were vandalized in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Items defaced with red spray paint were four large scalloped shell sculptures, the Pilgrim Maiden statue, a National Monument to the Forefathers, a sign celebrating the 400th year anniversary of the Pilgrims’ landing and Plymouth Rock itself.

The tagging, which is a slang term for spray painting a distinguishing mark or phrase on something, simply read “508 MOF.”

Now, 508 is the area code for Plymouth, but the MOF was apparently a bit of a mystery. However, figuring that the idiots who did this aren’t Rhodes scholars, I’d say it’s a pretty good bet “MOF” is the further abbreviation of MOFO, which is short for mother f-er. Yes – brilliant in its simple eloquence, I know. Real wordsmiths. read more

Those Trees are for the King

The Story of the Pine Tree Riot

The Real Start of the Revolution

by: Brent Smith

Scroll down for Audio Version

Practically everyone knows of the “Boston Tea Party”, that occurred in 1773. It is recognized as the action which began America’s revolution.

However, there was an event that predates it, although few have heard the tale.

When the first shipment of masts from Portsmouth, New Hampshire to England occurred, in 1634, England had already suffered deforestation. In order to dominate the high seas, new sources of abundant timber for shipbuilding were needed. No ships, after all, could set sail without as many as twenty-three masts, yards, and spars varying in length and diameter from the bulky mainmast to its subordinate parts.

Although New Hampshire’s white pine was not as hard as Europe’s, its height and diameter were superior. It also weighed less and retained resin longer, giving the ships a sea life as long as two decades.

When granting lands in America in 1690, King William prohibited the cutting of white pine over two feet in diameter. In 1722, under the reign of George I, parliament passed a law that reduced the diameter to one foot, required a license to cut white pine, and established fines for infractions. read more

Chuck Yeager always had the “Right Stuff” regardless if NASA never selected him for the space program. Yeager was a decorated fighter pilot in World War II and became a test pilot and was the first man to exceed the speed of sound in level flight.

Yeager was born to a farming family on February 13, 1923, in Myra West, Virginia. He graduated from the Class of 1941 from Hamlin High School in West Virginia. Then, in September, he enlisted in the U.S. Army.

Yeager was assigned to the Army Air Corps as a private and was a mechanic at George Air Base in Victorville California. He wasn’t eligible for flight training due to his age and his lack of education. However, three months later the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor and the U.S. lowered the eligibility requirements and helped by his 20/10 vision, he was accepted into the flight program. read more

So You Want to Understand the Constitution

from Zero Hedge:

If You Want To Understand The Constitution, Don’t Ask A Lawyer

Most Americans say the Constitution is important. Most Americans say it’s crucial for the government to stay within its constitutional bounds. But what exactly are the constitutional limits on federal power? How do we know?

Well, whatever you do, don’t ask a lawyer. Most of them know very little about the Constitution.

I can already hear you protesting. Lawyers know a lot about the Constitution. They learn constitutional law, for goodness sake!

But read closely what I wrote. I didn’t say they don’t know a lot about constitutional law. I said they typically don’t know a lot about the Constitution. There’s a huge difference. read more

Resurrecting an 80’s Hydrofoil Boat

When a team of Yamaha engineers found this 1988 hydrofoil prototype in the back of a warehouse, they couldn't resist restoring it and taking it for a spin

Hydrofoiling boats are by no means new. The first hydrofoil-related patent dates all the way back to 1898, and there are numerous photos of hydrofoiling boats zipping along from the early 1900s. But their eye-popping ability to rise up out of the water and glide along with minimal drag never fails to catch the eye and spark the imagination, and it’s hard to watch one in action without wondering what it feels like to drive.

WND Exclusive – Gulags for Deplorables: Now They’ve Actually Said It

from Brent for World Net Daily:

We conservatives have been warning of the rise of the radical left for some time – the rise of hard-line leftism / fascism / communism. Take your pick, because fundamentally, they are the same.

And for those warnings, we’ve been derided as right-wing loons and sky-is-falling paranoids. This could never happen in America, they say. Americans may joke about such things, but when push comes to shove, no one will ever advocate for communist-style gulags and reeducation camps.

Still, with history on our side, we soldier on, ever wary of the signs that may point to this rising.

Well, evidently, the time is now. read more
