Concrete walls at the Hamaoka Nuclear Power Plant were found to have become stronger over their lifetime

In a list of walls that you’d want to stay strong, those in a nuclear reactor would be near the top. Now, researchers have found that the walls in a decommissioned power plant in Japan have not only kept their strength but have actually gotten stronger with use, thanks to a rare mineral also found in ancient Roman concrete.

They’ll be Coming for You and Me Next

by: Brent Smith

Although this is a relatively long piece, as usual, the author Joy Pullmann, exhibits good incite and prescience for what lies ahead for us constitutional conservatives. It is well worth the read to the end.

After this last tumultuous year filled with pandemic scares and political malfeasance, we on the right, would sorely love to get back to our mantra of live and let live.

However, Ms. Pullmann fears, as do I and many others, that this will simply not be possible. The left will not allow it.

Democrats Are Framing Americans As Domestic Terrorists So They Can Do To Us What They Did To Trump In Spygate

Democrats have moved swiftly to use the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol mayhem to push for a frightening expansion of federal surveillance and police powers, openly smearing anyone who voted for Donald Trump as a potential terrorist.

Uncle Joe just Doin what he’s told – Sign that Perverse Executive Order

by: Brent Smith

Well this will turn out great – and the kind of thing that really ticks me off. Not only because it’s just so wrong, but also, anyone with a brain knows that Uncle Joe Biden doesn’t really believe this crap – no more than he actually believes that making all illegal aliens citizens will do anything but hurt our country, or joining the stupid Paris Climate Accord will stop global warming.

Joe has a list of orders to sign that he had no input in creating. And this is the way it’s going to go until he is removed from office. Just give him a pen, tape it to his hand and instruct him to sign on the line, and just don’t worry about what you’re signing. read more

Biden says “No Mas” to the Latest Caravan of Illegals

by: Brent Smith

Oh Yeah – I’m sure this is exactly what the latest migrant caravan wants to here – don’t come now.

After all the wailing about the Trump administration refusing the angelic migrants entrance into our nation, and the promise from leftists that once we take charge, you’ll all be welcome is turning out to be just another leftist lie.

And why? Well, maybe it is really that they’ll all be let in, but it’ll just take some time as the Biden people are saying. Or maybe it’s something else.

Now I’m just spit-balling here, but the dirty dems did just prove that they’ve discovered (fabricated) the means to win an election without additional illegal alien votes. And historically, if the left doesn’t need you – if you don’t or can’t further their agenda, they’ll toss you aside. Maybe that’s it.

In any event, the Biden people are asking the latest caravan not to come right now.

Is This Superbugs Achilles Heal?

Researchers have found that bacteria-killing viruses could help make superbugs susceptible to antibiotics once again
Researchers have found that bacteria-killing viruses could help make superbugs susceptible to antibiotics once again

Viruses firmly hold the world’s attention at the moment, but we shouldn’t ignore the rising health threat that bacteria pose, too. The crafty critters are fast evolving resistance to antibiotics, meaning our best drugs could soon stop working entirely. Now researchers in Australia have found a way to bypass drug resistance in these so-called superbugs – by distracting them with predatory viruses.
