Another Promise Kept – Iran Deal Scrapped

Imagine that – a president, or frankly any politician save for a select few, who makes

promises on the campaign trail and has the nerve to actually do what he said and keep them. What a novelty! Too bad it actually is. But for president Trump, it seems to be business as usually – make a campaign promise and “make it so Number One.” Another promise kept.

TEARS IN TEHRAN: Trump Pulls US Out Of Iran Nuclear Deal

MSM Equates Human Rights Abuses to Trump calling them Fake News

from NewsBusters:

Kelly Jane Torrance of The Weekly Standard wrote a startling article on “Our self-obsessed parochial press corps” in the magazine’s May 7 edition. The setting was an April 20 State Department briefing on its report on human-rights abuses in other countries…but the reporters wanted to focus on the horrors of America, where a president says “Fake News.”

Weapon Wednesday – Quantum Radar Will Negate Stealth Technology

Stealth technology may not be very stealthy in the future thanks to a US$2.7-million project by the Canadian Department of National Defence to develop a new quantum radar system. The project, led by Jonathan Baugh at the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC), uses the phenomenon of quantum entanglement to eliminate heavy background noise, thereby defeating stealth anti-radar technologies to detect incoming aircraft and missiles with much greater accuracy. read more

Invaders Try to Enter America and Canada Changes Its Tune

I couldn’t help noticing the grateful immigrants, who are so thankful to leave their war-torn, murderous and oppressive nations. These patriots in waiting set atop the border fence, laughing and waving the American flag out of respect and reverence for their new home.

What? That’s not what happened? Huh. Instead these invaders were waving every flag but ours – the flags of the war-torn hell holes like Honduras they claim to wish to escape. These are not refugees, but invaders.

Now some might say – how dare I call them invaders? Well what would you call them? What do hostile forces do after they’ve sacked a town, or territory? Oh that’s right. They announce to the world that this is conquered territory by taking down the enemies flag and waving theirs around in triumph before running it up the flagpole. Given the opportunity and the attitude, I don’t doubt that at least some of these “migrants” would surely do just that – take down the American flag and replace it with the Honduran flag.

Some would ask why the migrants don’t just seek asylum in Mexico.

The answer was established almost a month ago – that this caravan march to the border is not about, and was never about asylum, refugees, or even making to our border – at least not for the organizers. Organizers? You mean this caravan march was not spontaneous? read more

Plain old video calls could soon be made to look very outdated, thanks to new research coming out of Queen’s University in Ontario. A team there has produced a 3D teleconferencing system called TeleHuman 2, which enables real-time holograms of people to appear in any location. read more

Pierpaolo Lazzarini, the Italian designer behind the UFO 2.0 floating home, has conceived a floating community made up of solar-powered pyramid-shaped buildings. The Wayaland project is still very much in the concept stage at present, but Lazzarini is hoping to raise the funds necessary to begin construction on it with a crowdfunding campaign. read more

Video Podcast – Let’s talk Korea

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The left is just so predictable. They just cannot see fit to giving even a modicum of credit to president Trump for anything.

So let’s talk Korea. The Korean War began on June 25, 1950. It is the longest war America will ever be involved in. That’s 68 years. Some might even say it’s the longest of any kind in modern history. This would be incorrectamundo. Israel has been at war with the Muslims since its founding in 1948.

And then along comes Trump. He doesn’t understand that you’re not allowed to be tough on your adversaries. You must not threaten. You must negotiate, cause that works so well.

Of course they are wrong. Strong-arm dictators and terrorists know only 1 thing, and that’s power and force. And thankfully, like Reagan with the Soviets, Kim actually believes that Trump will follow through on his threats. Which is why North Korea is now at the bargaining table. read more

A real-world Jurassic Park is never going to happen, but shooting for a more recent prehistoric era might be more achievable. The Pleistocene Park project is aiming to rebuild a lost Ice Age ecosystem in Siberia, and its directors, the father-and-son team of Sergey and Nikita Zimov, say it could help slow the effects of climate change. Now, the initiative is running a crowdfunding campaign to help transport a new herd of animals to the park. read more

No Stay of Execution for Alfie

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The case of little Alfie Evans is a tragic one. At 23 months old, this healthy boy developed a rare neurodegenerative disorder that left him in a semi-vegetative state. That’s strike one against the poor little tike.

Strike two is that he and his parents reside in England, the poster nation for socialized medicine. And strike three is that, given enough time, every nation with socialized medicine will eventually be forced into the development of death panels.

In England the defacto “death panels” is the British court system. The courts decide who will live and who will die. The courts have decided the latter of the two fates for Alfie. They have condemned him to death with no stay of execution, no pardon and possibility of parole.

This is funny (not ha, ha funny), considering Great Britain has long ago rejected the death penalty for the worst criminals and terrorists among them, but seem to have little problem sending a two year old to death row. read more
