Is Coronavirus becoming another Settled Science?

from the American Thinker:

Why the Left is Weaponizing Science

According to some “experts,” science can sometimes be settled, meaning that in certain areas of study, the evidence has been deemed so overwhelming and indisputable that further debate is not only unnecessary, it is forbidden. Only one interpretation of this evidence is possible. However, science is really nothing more than a tool, developed by humans for the purposes of studying our universe and the world on which we live. And scientists are human beings, which means they are prone to making mistakes. It would be just as silly to genuflect as a show of reverence to science as it would be for a carpenter to worship his hammer. It is helpful to remember that even the person who graduates from medical school at the very bottom of the class has still earned the right to be called “doctor.” read more

Green Activists Never Take a Break

Not even during a pandemic, do the enviro-weenies take a break. Nothing will stand in the way of seeing their dream of 100% emission free energy. And after they’ve achieved that, they can purchase the bridge in Brooklyn I have for sale.

from the American Thinker:

Clean Energy Via Legislative Diktat

For those enamored by the clean electric-car, smoke-and-mirrors “emission elsewhere scheme” comes the recently enacted “Virginia Clean Economy Act”, which includes one of the largest energy storage targets in the country at 2.4 GW by 2035, and prompts state regulators to craft a carbon dioxide cap and trade program that meets the objectives of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI). read more

Salon Owner is Face of the New Civil Rights Movement

from the American Thinker:

Shelley Luther is America’s New Rosa Parks

Dallas, Texas salon owner Shelley Luther has become the face of the movement to free the nation from the oppressive lockdowns imposed by despotic governors and mayors.

She is a modern-day Rosa Parks, but more on that in a moment.

An inspiration in these dark times to patriotic Americans who yearn to have their most basic constitutional rights respected, Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail on May 5 for daring to open her salon despite emergency decrees mandating the continued forced closure of businesses like hers that have arbitrarily been deemed non-essential.

But Luther was liberated May 7 after the Supreme Court of Texas ordered her released “pending final disposition of this case.”  On May 8, Texas will allow hair salons to reopen with conditions. read more

We Didn’t Need Such Draconian Virus Control Measures

from the American Thinker:

We made a terrible mistake

We’re told that social distancing is working because we’re flattening the curve.  How do we know that those two things are related?  There isn’t that all-important-for-good-science control group.  For all we know, the result would have been similar if we hadn’t put such draconian measures in place. read more

Not Covid Related – A New Muslim Wave Coming to Europe

Why is Turkey still a member of NATO? Of course one could also ask why we’re a member anymore, but that’s another discussion. Turkey, and more specifically its president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, is no friend of Europe or America. And now Erdoğan has promised to unleashed vast amounts of Muslim refugees on its European “allies.” All by sending them through Greece. What a guy.

from American Thinker: 

While the media are riveted by coronavirus, the Greece-Turkey border is exploding

Even as Americans are obsessed with whether Trump is controlling the Wuhan Virus or whether Costco will have more toilet paper, unnerving things are happening on the Greece-Turkey border.  Turkey has unleashed tens of thousands of Muslim refugees who are headed to Europe, an invasion that, if successful, could destroy Europe’s economy and will advance the demographic change started in 2015. read more

Denmark Not Happy with Bernie

from the American Thinker:

No Bernie, Denmark is Not a Socialist Utopia

Socialist/communist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders loves to sing the praises of a small Scandinavian country, Denmark. It seems he has fallen out of love with his previous favorite countries, the Soviet Union and Cuba, which he “warmly praised” in the late 1980s.

After spurning the USSR, the country he spent his honeymoon in, shirtless, singing along drunkenly with his fellow communist comrades, he has moved on to northern Europe as representing his idea of utopia. read more

Radical New York Governor is Just a Typical Democrat

The policies of New York Governor have become increasingly radical over the past few years. But when you think about it, he is directly reflective of the democrat party as a whole. The whole lot of them have never been more radical then they are today. It’s almost as if they intentionally want to burn down the entire traditional American system and rebuild it in their own warped image. But that couldn’t be it – right?

Andrew Cuomo: Criminals’ Best Friend

Thirty-five years ago, as a late teen, I came to New York to attend yeshiva.  As an avid follower of news and politics, I recall cringing every time I heard then–New York governor Mario Cuomo on the radio, as he pontificated on the issues of the day, spewing forth liberal platitudes as if they were divine truths that no one dare question, while failing to say anything of substance, as the state was falling apart.  It was a disgrace.

Seventeen years later, Cuomo’s son, Andrew, was sworn in as the 56th governor of New York.  Although none of my friends or family members voted for him, people commented at the time that Andrew Cuomo was better than his father — pro-business; anti-crime; not as politically correct; and willing to take on ultra-progressives, such as NYC mayor Bill de Blasio.  The crime rate in New York State was not escalating, the rate of businesses leaving the state was not increasing, and things seemed sort of OK for a state led by a Democrat (although issues of morality, with Cuomo’s infatuation with “gay pride” and his non-marital domestic relationship, left much to be desired). read more

Crooked Dems and Their “For the People Act”

from the American Thinker:

Do Democrats really care about election integrity?

What does “election integrity” actually mean to Democrats?  A perspective is provided by the Democrat-sponsored “For the People Act” (H.R.1 in the current Congress), a dreadfully misnamed legislative mess that purports to improve election integrity and transparency.  Some of its features are:

• Mandates automatic, universal voter registration, and makes it a crime to interfere with registration

• Allows voter registration at age 16 read more

Schiff’s Plan to Sway Republicans

from the American Thinker:

Two hours of dog barking: Adam Schiff tries to bore us into Getting Trump

Adam Schiff is a man of very peculiar reasoning. Like a dolt shouting louder at a foreign-language speaker in a bid to make him ‘understand,’ Schiff’s decided that if he just keeps speaking long enough, we will all suddenly turn into anti-Trumpsters and throw Trump from office. read more

Will Dems Actually Get Prosecuted?

While I’m not onboard with some of what the author writes, this is a pretty interesting piece.

from the American Thinker:

Does William Barr Have the Guts?

When asked if William Barr has the guts to do what needs to be done, a semi-famous conservative Twitter pundit answered that Barr has the guts, but what he lacks is prosecutable crimes.

Wait, what?

If this seems like utter nonsense to you, you are not alone.  It is nonsense until you consider that successful prosecution also requires an unbiased jury willing to convict.  The point might have been that Barr lacks a D.C. jury pool that would be eager to impugn swamp creatures with the same zeal demonstrated for the prosecution of Roger Stone.  This is a particularly tough pill to swallow for the sober masses who are watching our nation be systematically imperiled by Democrats and the media. read more
