There’s no doubt that nostalgia sells, and both the iconic Volkswagen Kombi and timeless Back to the Future movies have it in spades.

So maybe targeting a highly specific group of wealthy automotive aficionados that like both retro-Volkswagens and the Back To The Future movies isn’t as crazy as it sounds – or maybe it is. read more

WND Exclusive – SAUDIS ALLYING WITH … ISRAEL?

It seems that Saudi Arabia may be allying with the lesser Satan, Israel. America is, of course, the Great Satan.

For decades Saudi Arabia has been an unspoken bad seed, a major state-sponsor of terror and the genesis of the Muslim Brotherhood. It’s been a toss-up as to who is really the No. 1 terror sponsor – the Iranian mullahs or the Saudi Wahhabists.

It’s been surmised by some experts that a major reason the Saudis fund and export terror is simple self-preservation. If we finance the radicals, they won’t turn on us. This is at least in part, as we may recall, why the kingdom funded al-Qaeda when bin Laden was the head cheese. They literally funded him on the stipulation that he would not return to Saudi Arabia. This has served to keep the nation relatively stable, even when those around them were under siege. The radical Islamists chose not to bite off the hand that was feeding them. read more

Liquid Electronics on the Horizon

In a step towards creating a new class of electronics that look and feel like soft, natural organisms, mechanical engineers at Carnegie Mellon University are developing a fluidic transistor out of a metal alloy of indium and gallium that is liquid at room temperature. From biocompatible disease monitors to shape-shifting robots, the potential applications for such squishy computers are intriguing. read more

Should We Defend Roy Moore or Not

I’m no great supporter of Judge Roy Moore. Heck – I was a Mo Brooks guy. He’s looking pretty good right about now – isn’t he?

It seems few are coming to Moore’s defense. Everyone is so afraid to even go near the guy for fear that if the allegations of sexual misconduct are true, anyone who once defended him would also go down in flames.

Well, I’m going to defend him and assume he’s innocent until I discover otherwise. That’s called – you got it – the American way. Some of us still believe in the arcane principle of innocent until proven guilty. You don’t have to support or even like the guy to uphold this ideal.

I will because A: These are so far just uncorroborated and baseless accusations B: At least one accuser worked for both Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden and is campaigning for Moore’s democrat opponent. C: Indications are that Corfman, the main accuser, has claimed several pastors at various churches made sexual advances at her. D: “Former Secret Service agent Doug Lewis has made an [as yet] unsubstantiated claim that a WaPo reporter named “Beth” offered a family friend $1000 to accuse Roy Moore, and that a tape of the offer is in the hands of the DA.” Lewis claims the WaPo reporter lives right outside D.C. and donated to Hillary and the DNC in 2016. read more

Video Podcast – Louis C.K. Admits Wrongdoing – Democracy on the Orville

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Comedian Louis C.K. did something not have. When presented with accusations of sexual misconduct and overall lewd behavior, he admitted that all the accusation were true. That’s astounding considering that the other Hollywood dirtbags are either denying or just running away. I explore this phenomenon.

A television program called the Orville is created, written and stars comedian Seth MacFarlane. It’s like Star Trek with some comedy. One episode was particularly fascinating as it dealt with democracy. Not democracy as many Americans think, but true democracy – as in mob rule. Only this time the mob all have smart phones. read more

Roy Moore is Tried and Convicted in the Court of Public Opinion

Did Alabama Senate candidate, Republican Roy Moore do it or not? Did he do what the woman, Leigh Corfman, accused him of doing some 38 years ago? Is he guilty of sexual misconduct with a minor or not?

Well, I don’t know, and neither does anyone else, save for Moore and Corfman.

But reading Corfman’s account of the events struck me as odd, as did the timing.

The girl says that Moore met her and her mother on a bench outside a courtroom one day in 1979 – a mere 38 years ago.

“He struck up a conversation, Corfman and her mother say, and offered to watch the girl while her mother went inside for a child custody hearing,” writes the Washington Post. “He said, ‘Oh, you don’t want her to go in there and hear all that. I’ll stay out here with her,’ ” says Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, 71. “I thought, how nice for him to want to take care of my little girl.”

A man that neither of them knows strikes up a conversation with Leigh and her mother outside a courtroom, offers to watch the daughter and the mother thinks nothing of it? I’m sorry, but even in 1979 this seems a little strange, not to mention the detail of what was said almost 40 years later. read more

There are plenty of companies out there working on VTOL manned multirotor designs, from Joby Aviation and eVolo to Jetpack Aviation and Russia’s Hoversurf. But there’s only one group we’re aware of that’s actually already built and tested a vehicle capable of doing 70 mph (113 km/h) on the highway and flying 10,000 feet in the air – and that’s Advanced Tactics, Inc, (AT) out of Torrance, California, which has just announced the AT Transporter, a multi-mission quadcopter capable of carrying up to six people or 1,200 lb (544 kg) of cargo. read more
