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

Armed Leftists Block traffic and Threaten Drivers

by: Brent Smith

Well, no matter what your current situation is, it could be worse.

You could live in Portland, Oregon, which is beginning to make Benghazi look like Disney World. And Benghazi at least had some good guys willing to fight. Where are the Portland police? Oh that’s right – they’re likely told to stand down or stand-by while dirtbag leftists with weapons block cars and threaten drivers.

The armed leftists – there’s an oxymoron for you – were apparently out “protesting” a legitimate police shooting of an armed thug, Patrick Kimmons, from 2018 – three years ago! What took them so long? read more

Tiny robots could serve all kinds of useful functions, but shrinking their actuators has proven challenging. Now researchers at the University of Wollongong (UOW) in Australia have made artificial muscles that surpass your puny natural ones, inspired by the “supercoiling” of DNA strands. read more

Look Ma – No Flu!

by: Brent Smith

Finally someone other than us edumicated dopes are telling the truth about the Covid scam.

An actual doctor has the courage to tell the truth, or at least ask some very obvious questions, like where has the flu gone? Every year millions contract the flu and tens of thousands die, but not this season.

How odd, I say both rhetorically and facetiously. read more

LongROAD may track Early Stage Dementia

Researchers have developed models that could predict mild cognitive impairment and dementia with 88 percent accuracy
Researchers have developed models that could predict mild cognitive impairment and dementia with 88 percent accuracy

A fascinating new study from a team of US researchers has used machine learning techniques to develop algorithms that can analyze naturalistic driving data and detect mild cognitive impairment and dementia in a driver. The work is still in the preliminary stages, however, the researchers claim it could be possible in the future to detect early signs of dementia using either a smartphone app or devices incorporated into car software systems. read more

By wonderful, I mean the exact opposite.

Sykes claims that Fox News is not only, “spreading vicious racist tropes,” but, “has become a vector of disinformation about the pandemic that is putting human lives in danger.” read more

BLM Mission Creep – Away from Black Lives – Toward Forever Silencing Donald Trump

by: Brent Smith

Really – who couldn’t have seen this coming. The “trained Marxists” of BLM have shifted their focus – oh not to improve the lives of blacks, but to attack Donald Trump, and prevent him from another possible run at the presidency, and wipe away his influence.

Any student of history would know that the multi-million dollar organization, Black Lives Matter, was never about black lives. The founders/leaders of the group admitted they were, “trained Marxists.” One can’t be a Marxist, a true follower of Karl Marx, and care about black lives, or any people of color. This is quite ironic, considering the three founders are black women.

Maybe they are just ignorant of history, self-hating blacks, or just plain stupid, for as anyone with even a passing knowledge of Karl Marx knows, he was a virulent racist and anti-Semite, often using the ‘N-word’ to describe blacks and referring to them as common Negro types – the “degenerate form of a much higher one … a very significant advance over Darwin.”

But I suppose none of it matters to the left who will use the useful idiots of the BLM movement to destroy their perceived enemies. And enemy number one appears to still be … you guessed it … Donald J. Trump.

from the American Thinker:

BLM puts out a new list of demands, targeting President Trump, or else

Activists from Black Lives Matter, not happy with merely defunding the police or raking in huge corporate donations as their objective, now want President Trump banned from all digital media and future office.

That’s the report from the Washington Examiner, which notes that they’ve put out and updated their list of demands:

“We are joining Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Rep. Cori Bush, Rep. Jamaal Bowman, and others who are demanding Trump be immediately convicted in the United States Senate,” reads the first demand on the BLM website. “Trump must also be banned from holding elected office in the future.”

The group also called on former President Donald Trump to be permanently banned from “all digital media platforms,” arguing he uses the platforms “recklessly and irresponsibly to spread lies and disinformation.”

Turning their attention to Trump loyalists in Congress, the activist group demanded that all GOP lawmakers that “stoked Trump’s conspiracy theories and encouraged the white supremacists to take action to overturn the election” be expelled from Congress.

This, in their case, is a shakedown, given the damage they cause to cities — burning, looting, rioting — when they don’t get their way.
