White Guy Hired – Black Guy isn’t – Must be Racism

by: Brent Smith

Oh, here we go again. The white guy gets hired in the National Football League before the black athlete.

I mean, how often have we seen that? All the time, right? How about almost never. But because it’s happening this time, it must be racism.

That’s the only answer. It’s systemic, automatic, systematic, emblematic, enigmatic, rythmatic, aerobatic – oh sorry. Got carried away – thought I was part of the Jackson Five singing, “Dancin Machine.” But I can’t really do that because that would cultural appropriation. Whitey just can’t win. read more

Defeating Superbugs

By turning modern scientific tools on an antibiotic discovered 70 years ago, researchers have unearthed a previously unknown mechanism it uses to pierce and pop superbugs like balloons. Promisingly, the scientists have also demonstrated how this approach to taking out bacteria can be supercharged by combining it with other antibiotics, potentially offering a new form of defense against deadly, drug-resistant bacteria.

The accumulation of plaque inside the arteries can be an insidious condition with grave consequences that include blood clots and strokes, but luckily it does give off some tell-tale signs. Researchers in the UK have developed a new type of glowing probe that focuses on one of them, increasing its fluorescence in the presence of a key enzyme and possibly acting as an early warning sign for cardiovascular disease.

WND Exclusive – 2nd Amendment: What does ‘bear Arms’ really mean?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Well, our vaunted United States Supreme Court has agreed to take up a case regarding the Second Amendment.

This is pretty uncommon, but it does happen – mostly because the Supremes over the years haven’t dared to actually do their jobs to the fullest, so their decisions seem to encompass a narrow scope and half-measures, never fully putting to bed that the Second Amendment clearly gives the right of an individual to “keep,” which means to own, and “bear,” which means to carry, arms on one’s person.

The Second Amendment makes no distinction between open and concealed carry, and thus any argument against either is moot. Nor does it make mention of licenses and/or permits, which is what this upcoming case is about, so these, too, are moot. read more

Video Podcast – Inflation is Here

Inflation is here. The Biden administration is lying, the supposed “independent” Federal Reserve is lying. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is lying. The media is lying, although some have figured out that it’s just impossible any more to say there is no inflation.

You can tell they’re lying by the word games they play with us.

First they came out and said there is no inflation. And they could say that because they would average prices over the previous year, and insist on just telling us only about indexed inflation numbers.

Now they say that yes there inflation, but it’s only temporary – it’s transitory.

Allow me to quote some inflationary figures to show that there sure is inflation and maybe it’s not so transitory. read more
