Deplorable has a New Meaning – And it’s Nancy Pelosi

Don’tcha just love the flags?

Remember when Hillary Clinton described us as “deplorables?”

Well there’s a new definition, and it describes the impeachment speech that Nancy Pelosi gave the other day. There was nothing quite as deplorable as listening to 5 minutes and 42 seconds of disingenuous faux-patriotism from a San Francisco leftist who, like her fellow leftists would, if they could, shred the Constitution.

It was the most despicable display I’ve seen since the last time Adam Schiff opened his mouth. So really – not so long ago.

Up to the point of the phony Trump impeachment, we never heard a single democrat quoting the founding fathers or our founding documents. Until recently, not a single leftist has mentioned that the United States is in fact a Republic, and not a democracy. However Pelosi intentionally intermingled the two terms as if they are synonymous.

She began by describing our revolution and our want to break free from an oppressive King, King George III, and “the King’s refusal to follow rightfully passed laws.” This, of course, is also meant to describe president Trump. read more

Part of the space agency’s Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) initiative, the unmanned “pallet” lander is designed to carry a variety of experiments and instruments, including small autonomous rovers, to the lunar surface. read more

Are You Dreaming of a Gay Christmas?

If so, you may soon get your wish. Maybe not this season, but probably next. I personally know that when I think of Christmas, that’s the first thing that springs to mind. Maybe John Legend and Kelly Clarkson have their next hit: I’m Dreamin of a Gay Christmas!

As you might imagine, installing seismic sensors on the ocean floor isn’t an easy task. Recently, however, scientists were able to detect seabed seismic activity using something that was already down there – a fiber optic telecommunications cable.

Meadows Shreds Impeachment By Hearsay

by: Brent Smith

It’s easy to sum up the democrat impeachment report, and it takes a lot less than the 300 pages of bloviation they spat out, not to mention the days and days of inane testimony.

Allow me to sum it all up. “Well that’s what we heard!”

Even after all the time and money they’ve wasted on this clown show, not a single witness was able to provide the dems with any first-hand evidence, or any knowledge of any wrong-doing by the president. And need I remind us all – it is our money they are wasting.

And I’m not the only one who shares this feeling. Representative Mark Meadows (R-NC), former Chairman of the Freedom Caucus embarked on a tweet-storm Tuesday, shredding the entire democrat impeachment report in just 6 points. Adding all his tweets together would barely fill a single page.

Turning Banana Waste into Plastic

Although all plants are a potential source of nanocellulose, banana plants' high cellulose content makes them particularly well-suited – along with the fact that new plants are grown every year

The bunches of bananas that we buy in stores grow off of a central trunk-like structure, known as the pseudostem. And while that part of the plant is typically discarded during harvesting, it may soon find use in a plastic that biodegrades and is fully recyclable. read more

The War on the Electoral College has Begun – Again

As you read the following post, trying to keep up with the warped logic of the democrats – remember one thing. And it’s the one thing I never hear Republicans or conservatives (not always one and the same) argue. And that is, except for two States, the candidate who wins each State’s Electoral College must first win that State’s popular vote. Every State but two is winner take all.

What the left is doing is purposely muddying the water to make it appear that the democrat is being robbed of the victory the people granted him or her. As if their vote doesn’t count. But we know it does count, as much as it ever did.  The dems don’t just want a popular vote election. What they want is what the founders warned of – a cumulative popular vote election, where a few States with the largest concentrations of population reside, and thus sway the election.

Warren: I’ll Be ‘Last American President Elected By The Electoral College’

Progressives like Warren want to abolish the Electoral College because they want to get rid of our constitutional system entirely

On Monday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren reiterated her view that the Electoral College should be abolished and U.S. presidents should be elected by popular vote. “My goal is to get elected—but I plan to be the last American president to be elected by the Electoral College. I want my second term to be elected by direct vote,” she tweeted.

In the accompanying video clip, she said, “Call me old fashioned, but I think the person who gets the most votes should win.”

Warren has a curious idea of what counts as “old fashioned,” since her position on the Electoral College puts her at odds with the decidedly old fashioned Founding Fathers, who rightly worried about what James Madison called the “tyranny of the majority.”

Democrats are apparently unbothered by this possibility, not least because they believe they’ve secured a permanent majority and, if they could just seize power, they would govern as benign rulers. What’s standing in their way is nothing less than our constitutional system.

 

That’s why you see Democrats coming out against not just the Electoral College but also the Senate and the Supreme Court. Why should Wyoming or Iowa have two votes in the Senate, so the thinking goes, when so few people live there? Why should five Supreme Court justices decide contentious questions about, say, gun rights? (Expect to hear howls of protest from the left if the gun rights case the justices heard on Monday, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. City of New York, doesn’t go their way.)

It’s not just Warren. According to one poll earlier this year, 60 percent of Democratic voters support abolishing the Electoral College, and much of the mainstream media seems to agree. After the 2016 election, The New York Times attacked the Electoral College as an “antiquated mechanism,” Time magazine published an article arguing the Electoral College was designed to protect slavery, and E. J. Dionne Jr. of The Washington Post compared it to a game of chance in a casino.
