Joke of the Day

A lady awoke one morning and discovered her dog was not moving. She called her vet who asked her to bring the dog in. After a brief examination, the vet pronounced the dog dead.

“Are you sure”, the distraught woman asked? “He was a great family pet. Isn’t there anything else you can do?” read more

Georgetown Students Go All In on Reparations

Heading into the next presidential extravaganza, one of the many potential ultra-progressive platform items is reparations for slavery. Many leftist candidates like Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Robert Francis O’Rourke, Corey Booker, etc., have either signed on or are considering an endorsement of it.

So popular has it become that a few days ago, CNN dedicated a full one third of its home page to various articles regarding reparations.

And it’s not just grabbing the attention of democrat politicians, clamoring for relevancy, but has naturally taken hold of the skulls full of mush (h/t: Rush Limbaugh) on college campuses. Surprising, I know, that “woke” college students would sign onto a program that takes money from one and distributes it to another.

Isn’t it interesting that the same student bodies across the nation, are on one hand, trying to erase this era of our history by ridding us of everything Confederate, and on the other, trying to keep it alive by continually revisiting slavery. It’s as if they want it both ways. Oh that’s right – they’re leftists, and leftists always want it both ways. read more

Scientific research continues to uncover interesting connections between the gut microbiome and human health, including everything from depression to PTSD to autoimmune disease. Another example of this are the emerging ties between gut health and autism, with an exciting new study demonstrating how boosting microbial diversity via fecal transplants can dramatically reduce its symptoms in the long term. read more

WND Exclusive – The Party of White Nationalism: Not the GOP

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

American history is replete with examples of white extremism and white nationalism. That’s an irrefutable fact.

Unfortunately, that history was long ago rewritten by the very party that rails against it now. And to call it a mere whitewashing of history is a severe understatement.

The party of white extremism, racism, bigotry and white nationalism, the Democrats, has all but erased the evils committed by the real villains, successfully offloading their turpitude onto an unsuspecting party, the Republicans, who stood for diversity, integration and tolerance.

This was on full display at a recent sham of a Democrat-controlled House Judiciary Committee hearing on – what else? – the threat of white supremacy in America.

Of course, as are all things in Congress today, this ‘hearing” was designed for one purpose: to get Trump – to paint him, and anyone who supports him, as nothing more than a racist white supremacist. Or, if you’re a black conservative, an Uncle Tom. read more

Video Podcast – Will Trump send Illegals to Sanctuary Cities

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Doubtless we’ve all heard of Trump’s threat to bus thousands of illegals and refugees to sanctuary cities and States. He says that they are always saying what a benefit to the community these “immigrants” are. Mayors and Governors alike claim that all should be welcome, without preconditions. The more the merrier. Immigrants are what make these cities great and all that clap-trap. The new mantra is “no human is illegal.”

So growing increasingly and understandably frustrated, Trump has decided to call the sanctuary cities on the insistence of their “come one, come all” policy.

And the left is utterly unhinged over Trump’s threat, which came without warning.

But is Trump serious about this, or is this just thrown out as a campaign issue, or other, to force the dems hand? read more

No More Regime Change

Juan Guaido

I don’t often disagree with President Trump or Vice President Pence on policy, but what we’re hearing regarding the whole Venezuela situation bothers me.

Everyone in their right minds would agree that Nicolás Maduro Moros, current president of Venezuela is a bad guy. And by bad guy, I mean like spawn of Satan bad guy. As bad as was Hugo Chávez, Maduro is worse.

Conditions in Venezuela are already terrible and getting worse all the time. Food is scarce and clean water, almost nonexistent. People are being forced to drink and cook what little food they have in the same foul water in which they wash their clothes (by hand) and children bath in. It’s a miracle that diseases haven’t yet run rampant.

Yet Maduro is unfazed, blaming the plight of “his” people on outside forces aligning against him and his regime. Sounds a lot like Kim Jong Un. read more

Whales weren’t always the giants of the sea that we know today – their ancestors plodded around on land before taking to a more aquatic lifestyle. Now a team of palaeontologists has uncovered the fossil bones of a strange new “missing link” whale species, which had four legs and was amphibious. read more
