Another Old Treatment shows Promise Battling Covid-19

As time passes and the scientific and medical community become more aware of exactly what Covid-19 is and is capable of, more and more treatments are surfacing.

But it seems that in many cases, the treatments developed are not new and cutting edge, but have been with us for sometimes multiple decades.

Just how far would a powerful, influential leftist go to stay out of prison?

We on the right, who write and podcast on nonfiction topics, try to keep the hyperbole to a minimum – to not exaggerate in order to emphasize a point. But every once in a while you just have to dust off the old tin-foil hat.

Happy Armed Forces Day

Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in May.  Thanks to President Harry S. Truman, it’s a day to pay special tribute to the men and women of the Armed Forces. President Truman led the effort to establish a holiday in order for citizens to unite and to honor our military heroes for their patriotic service in support of the United States of America.

Armed Forces Day is a joint celebration of all six branches of the U.S. military: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy, and yes, even the newly created Space Force. It differs from Veterans Day and Memorial Day in that it also pays tribute to all those in current active duty, but also includes the men and women who have served in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Space Force and Coast Guard, including the National Guard and Reserve components. read more
