Beware the Trump Coup

Pretty much everyone on the left has convinced themselves that it is a fait accompli regarding Trump’s impeachment. One such leftist website recently posted an article claiming that, “Trump‘s impeachment is almost inevitable at this point. There is just too much evidence that he has violated the constitution that he can’t continue to be president. It’s just a matter of time before his own party completely turns on him.”

Depending on how the 2018 midterm election shakes-out, it may be inevitable. If the democrats take back the House of Representatives, you can bet the first thing on their docket will be to present Articles of Impeachment. Heck, they already have.

However, as far as I can see, President Trump’s record thus far is completely untarnished – as being a “big meany” is not a High Crime. To date, the Mueller hit squad has found exactly squat regarding Trump ties to neither Russia, nor anything else that is an impeachable offense. You can bet the farm that if anyone had found something – anything to sink Trump, it would have been leaked. The left has employed every dirty trickster they can find to dig up something that might be construed as “treason, bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors” (Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution). They have not found, nor will they find anything. read more

Autonomous Underwater Drone

We’ve featured a fair number of underwater drones over the past few years, and they’re pretty much all remotely-controlled by their shore-based users. Denmark’s Supportive Robotics, however, is developing one that’s a bit different. Known as Allec, it can be piloted via remote control, but it can also perform its own autonomous missions. read more

California is Falling Apart

from the American Spectator:

 California’s Infrastructure Is Crumbling (When It’s Not Burning)

Oroville-Dam

Wen I first moved to California from Ohio in the 1990s, I spotted a postcard in a gift shop that noted the state’s four seasons: wildfires, mudslides, earthquakes and riots. The postcard wasn’t entirely wrong. Outside of drought years, the state does suffer through a regular cycle of fires, slides and earthquakes, although the riots aren’t actually a seasonal thing. Californians are accustomed to the state’s weather disasters the same way a Kansan is accustomed to tornado drills.

Currently, Southern California is ablaze. Not long ago, out-of-control wildfires consumed a large portion of the Napa Valley, tragically destroying about 5 percent of the region’s housing stock and killing dozens of people. I once had to flee a raging wildfire – and the experience is far from pleasant. During last year’s floods, we were packed and ready to go while hoping the aging levee system held near my little ranch downstream from the state’s last wild river. read more

3D Printed Organs

An international team of researchers has used 3D-printing technology to produce individually-tailored model organs. These dummy organs could one day improve your chances of surviving surgery, by allowing doctors to plan and practice a lifesaving procedure on a realistic replica before putting you to the scalpel.

Surgery is often a matter of life or death. The ability to practice a procedure outside of the operating room on an artificial human, or at least the relevant organ of a patient, can help to prepare a doctor for surgery, and so increase the chances of a patient surviving the procedure. read more

Global Warming is Killing the Polar Bears – Not

While reading this ridiculous account from the left chronicled by IBD, be mindful of these actual facts. The most recent Scientific Working Group Study of Polar Bear populations from 2016 shows a maximum of only 10,000 Polar Bears remained in the 1960’s. By 2005, populations increased to upwards of 25,000. They continue to increase each year. In 2015 the number jumped to maximum of 31,000 and last year, 2016, the number jumped again to over 32,250. I guess Global warming has been good to the Polar Bear.

from IBD:

No, Global Warming Isn’t Killing Off The Polar Bears

It’s a heart-rending video: A National Geographic video shows a plainly starving, shockingly thin polar bear rummaging for food. It’s near death. The tragic scene went viral on the internet.

“When scientists say bears are going extinct, I want people to realize what it looks like,” said SeaLegacy photographer Paul Nicklen, whose video of the bear was later shared online by National Geographic.

And, of course, the media wasted no time in fixing blame: global warming. read more

The British supercarrier HMS Queen Elizabeth officially joined the Royal Navy today at Portsmouth naval base. On the hangar deck of the 65,000-tonne (71,650-ton) ship, her Lady Sponsor, Queen Elizabeth II, formally oversaw the ceremony as Captain Jerry Kyd, the Commanding Officer, read the commissioning warrant that confirmed the future flagship as an active part of the fleet and the White Ensign and commissioning pennants were raised for the first time. read more

Liberals and Islamists Both Want Change – for the Worse

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

One big problem we have regarding radical Islam in this country is not just a lack of assimilation, but a concerted effort not to. These “immigrants” and “refugees” have no interest in becoming Americans, conforming to our society, and many are repulsed by the thought. America is just a better place to live than the crap hole from whence they came.

The same can be said of liberals.

The latest Islamist terrorist, Akayed Ullah, is from Bangladesh. The country of Bangladesh is about the size of the State of Michigan, yet has well over 160 million people. That’s half the population of the entire United States living in Michigan. Who the heck wouldn’t want to leave?

But they’re not thankful to be here. It’s obvious that they are not when many insist on trying to Islamize America. Many immigrants and refugees refuse to live by American law and instead demand that we all change and adopt Sharia.

There are several iterations of old sayings that go: You can take the boy of the country, but you take the country out of the boy. There’s one about girls and trailer parks, and Hoods and hoodlums. None are very kind, but all have at least a grain of truth to them. read more
