Hatred of Jews and Blacks Defy Logic

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Have you ever wondered why racists are who they are? Why are blacks hated so by them? It makes no sense. Is it just their skin color? Are they perceived as some sort of threat to the white race?

All the reasons one can conjure up defy logic.

Yet there is another race of people, with a parallel history of slavery to freedom, who are more reviled than the black race. Of course I’m referring to the Jews and the nation of Israel.

Like racists, anti-Semites and haters of Israel appear to have to make up reasons just to continue to hate the tiny nation.

When the anti-Semitic radical, Democrat Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, granted several interviews to Jew and Israel-hating TV host, Ahmed Tharwat, it got scant attention from the main stream media. If not for the Daily Caller, we might not know about it. read more

Venezuela, Cuba may be Designated as Terror States

from the Washington Free Beacon:

GOP Senators to Venezuelan Generals: ‘You Have a Decision to Make’

Key Republicans on Capitol Hill are warning the Maduro government in Venezuela, as well as Cuba, that they could be officially designated as state sponsors of terrorism, a status that carries the harshest of U.S. sanctions.

The Trump administration—at the same lawmakers’ urging—is also weighing new sanctions on Cuban generals and other officials, as well an even harsher action: ending a waiver, known as Title III of the Helms-Burton Act, which has been in effect since 1996, according to several government officials. read more

U.S. troops tasked to advise and equip armies in smaller developing countries are learning how to operate an older, Soviet-era artillery piece. The Texas-based 3rd Security Force Assistance Brigade is learning to operate the D-30 howitzer, a light artillery piece widely distributed during the Cold War so it can in turn train foreign militarizes on how to use it. read more

A small team of Israeli scientists think they might have found the first complete cure for cancer.

“We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer,” said Dan Aridor, of a new treatment being developed by his company, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi), which was founded in 2000 in the ITEK incubator in the Weizmann Science Park. AEBi developed the SoAP platform, which provides functional leads to very difficult targets. read more

Is Socialism Coming to an End in Venezuela?

from NewsBusters:

Maduro Must Go

Decades from now, historians will note with irony that socialism was rehabilitated in the United States just as its full depravity

Nicolás Maduro / Juan Guaidò

came into view in Venezuela. That beleaguered South American country took its first steps on the road to serfdom in 1999, when Hugo Chávez was elected to the first of four presidential terms. The former military officer used Venezuela’s plentiful oil reserves to spread the wealth as he consolidated power, harassed dissenters, and joined forces with Castro. Chávez was more than a typical Latin American populist. His regime was the rallying place for the international, anti-American left. His name became an ideology—Chávismo—based on revolutionary politics and centralized control. He was detestable. read more

We’re suckers for good concept tires here at New Atlas, and it seems there’s no shortage of ideas each year for what the future might look like where the rubber hits the road. These two Hankook concepts come to us from the Essen Motor Show, and they concentrate on autonomous comfort and racing downforce. read more

Chinese Rover Lands on the Moon

from the Daily Mail:

A Chinese rover is making its tracks on the soft surface of the ‘dark’ side of the moon after touching down on our nearest celestial neighbour.Image result for chinese rover

The Yutu-2 – or Jade Rabbit 2 – rover drove off its lander’s ramp and onto the exterior of the moon’s far side at 10:22pm Beijing time (2:22 pm GMT) on Thursday, about 12 hours after the Chinese spacecraft carrying it came to rest.

China’s space agency later posted a photos online, revealing lunar rover several yards away from the spacecraft.

The tracks it makes on the surface of the moon will be forever immortalised and will never be lost as there is no wind on the moon due to its lack of an atmosphere. read more

WND Exclusive – OF CARAVANS AND WALLS

16 Days of government shutdown and still counting.

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Well, the government is still shutdown. And all over a paltry $5 billion to partially fund more of the southern border wall, which, according to Democrats, is expensive, ineffective and immoral. Back in April 2017, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, speaking with NBC’s Chuck Todd, said that all this talk about building a wall is just Trump admitting that he can’t control our border. Yes, like his predecessors did such a great job.

Meanwhile there’s a new caravan already on the move. The original estimated date of departure from Honduras was to be Jan. 15, 2019. But Mexico News reported that it was on its way as of Dec. 24.

It is said to be 15,000 strong. If this is anywhere near accurate, by the time the caravan makes it through Guatemala and El Salvador, it could be double that size. The interesting thing about this caravan is, according to sources, many have no plans to come to the United States. read more

Irish Dirt Kills New Superbugs

Soil found in rural Northern Ireland could hold the key to fighting antibiotic resistance, researchers believe.

Doctors and scientists are desperately searching for new ways to kill superbugs – and the new finding could pave the way.

A study found dirt from County Fermanagh can stop the growth of drug-resistant bacteria, such as the hospital superbug MRSA.

The discovery has been hailed as an ‘important step forward’ in the progress against antibiotic resistance, considered one of the biggest threats to humanity.

The new bacteria discovered in the soil from County Fermanagh, streptomyces sp. myrophorea (pictured under a microscope) can halt the spread of superbugs including MRSA
