The Left Corrects Itself?

Is this the start of a new trend? Is this the birth of possibly more honest reporting? Or is merely a one-off event that we conservatives can point to and say, “see, we told you sold.”

I’m going to opt for the latter.

from the Blaze: 

New York Times reports on right wing conspiracies – then issues an epic correction

The New York Times was mocked on social media over a correction made Tuesday that revealed a bias many allege the news outlet has against conservatives.

Here’s what they corrected

In article detailing the role of Campbell Brown as the head of news partnerships for Facebook, technology reporter Nellie Bowles inserted an example of the “far-right conspiracy programming” that is still found on the social media behemoth. read more

Celebrating Earth Day with the Silliness

Assuming you lead a normal life, you, like me, were probably unaware that Sunday was Earth Day. And like me, you probably don’t give a crap. But many green-warriors sure did. And as a tip of hat to the green-weenies, the Daily Caller has complied a list. 

A list of the:

The Dumbest Things You Could Do To Save The Earth From Global Warming

Environmentalists sometimes propose radical solutions to save the world from global warming — a disaster some say will destroy almost all life on Earth if not dealt with quickly and radically.

In honor of Earth Day on April 22, The Daily Caller News Foundation compiled a list of solutions suggested or tried, largely unsuccessfully, by environmentalists to roll back the effects of global warming. read more

In a move that will probably delight anyone who raced slot cars as a kid (or an adult), the Swedish Transport Administration has just opened a 2-km (1.2-mi) stretch of electrified road that works the same way. The project, dubbed eRoadArlanda, involves embedding electric rails into the road surface to power electric vehicles through a contact arm hanging down from under the car. read more

Terrafugia says its TF-2 would be able to drop off a pod full of passengers and be lifting off with another within two minutes

The flying taxi space has welcomed a lot of newcomers over the past couple of years. But before the likes of Uber, Workhorse and the Volocopter swooped into the scene, Terrafugia had been testing the waters for more than a decade with a variety of flying taxi designs. And this old dog has new tricks in it yet, with a new concept dubbed the TF-2 that features a detachable pod for on-ground transit to and from the launchpad. read more

Where did Assad get the Chemical Weapons?

Once again, it is demonstrated that hollow diplomacy with no threat of anything behind it is utterly useless and all for show. And also monumentally naïve.

from Glenn Beck:

Obama got rid of all Syria’s chemical weapons, right? Nope.

More than 60 are dead and over 1,000 wounded in yet ANOTHER chemical weapons attack inside Syria.

It’s been exactly one year, to the week, since President Trump retaliated with 59 cruise missiles after the last chemical attack inside Syria. The images of men, women and children lying dead or foaming at the mouth, that reportedly prompted the President to strike last year, were just as gruesome and horrifying over the weekend. read more

Back in June of 2015, we heard about how Dutch 3D-printing firm MX3D was planning on printing a steel footbridge that would go across Amsterdam’s Oudezijds Achterburgwal canal. Well, construction of that bridge is now complete – although it still has to actually be placed over the water. read more

Since Khan took office, crime has increased by 12%. In the months of February and March, for the first time in modern history, London surpassed the homicide rate of New York City. This was mostly contributed to a spike in knife attacks. Moreover, the city has seen “epidemic” levels of acid attacks, which are common in Muslim majority countries. read more

Nikki Haley Keeps Pressure Up at U.N.

from the Washington Examiner:

Nikki Haley to UN: US ‘will not pay more than 25 percent of the peacekeeping budget’

U.S. taxpayers “will not pay more than 25 percent of the [United Nations] peacekeeping budget,” Ambassador Nikki Haley told the U.N. Security Council on Wednesday.

“We pledge to work with member states and the organization to ensure we make this adjustment in a fair and sensible manner that protects U.N. peacekeeping,” Haley said during a meeting on the U.N. peacekeeping mission.

President Trump’s administration has sought to reduce U.S. spending on U.N. peacekeeping throughout his first year in office. read more

Has the Tariff War Begun?

from Zero Hedge:

Here It Comes: China About To Launch “Tens Of Billions” More In Tariffs

This morning the market has been on edge over, and traders are obssessed with just one question: how will China retaliate to Trump’s trade war and tariffs… further. After all, the initial response of a modest 15-25% tariff on $3 billion in 128, mostly agricultural, products, seemed laughably small and appeared to be more of a warning shot than a real response to Trump’s $50BN in Section 301 tariffs.

One answer was revealed moments ago when as we reported that China’s ambassador to the US Cui Tiankai did not rule out the possibility of scaling back purchases of Treasuries in response to Trump’s tariffs. read more

When you think about all the logistical challenges involved, perhaps the use of aerial drones to deliver goods to peoples’ homes just isn’t feasible. That’s why several groups are now developing ground-based delivery drones. One of the latest, Barcelona-based Eliport, envisions a system in which people don’t even need to be involved. read more
