Most earthquakes last seconds to minutes, but others will rumble along slowly for days, weeks or even months, at low frequencies that may not be felt at the surface. Now, researchers in Singapore have discovered the slowest earthquake ever found, which lasted 32 years. read more

WND Exclusive – All free thinkers should stand with Israel

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

The so-called Palestinians could have had their own “homeland” long ago if it weren’t for “them Jews” and the Oppressor State, Israel.

This, of course, is the worldwide conventional wisdom.

But as is most often the case, conventional wisdom is wrong. In fact it is the opposite of wisdom for anyone who cares to do just a little research and maintain an open mind.

I realize in this day and age, that’s a big ask. read more

The Israeli Buccaneers vs the Hamas Chiefs

by: Brent Smith

The latest Israel, Hamas cease fire is a total sham, as they all are. Israel should never have agreed to it. History shows they should have never agreed to the first, or any.

Allow me to explain, as I embark into another sports analogy. It’s how I often make political points, so bear with me.

As you probably know, I am a huge football fan – college and NFL – but mostly the NFL. read more

  • Israel’s Iron Dome weapon has reportedly shot down most of the rockets that Hamas militants have fired at Israeli neighborhoods during the Israel-Gaza conflict this week.
  • The Iron Dome is designed to selectively deal with rocket attacks, intercepting only those headed toward populated areas.
  • Israel claims the Iron Dome is around 90 percent effective, but even a high probability intercept rate can fall victim to sheer numbers. read more

Who Else would Trained Marxists side With

Let’s just chalk this one up in the who didn’t see this coming category. Or perhaps in the Birds-of-a-feather category. Or maybe the Dark Minds think alike category. Whichever you choose, it is certainly a match made in hell.

And dig the old Francis Fox-Piven radical wannabes pictured below.

And one more thing about the photo – “Free Palestine” … from who? Last I checked, Israel doesn’t control or run the Palestinian territories – truth be known, Jordan is actually “Palestine,” not Israel.

But regardless, I was stunned when I read this news. And by stunned, I mean, Not at All. read more

WND Exclusive – Batteries can’t do the Job Greenies Think

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

It seems that one of the major objectives of the Biden administration, and I guess all Democratic politicians, is to dismantle everything that built this nation and made it great, and of course to spend us into oblivion without acknowledging any consequence for their actions.

The one warped initiative that may end up being the most painful is the push to shut off the energy spigot and somehow replace it with fairy dust and unicorn farts.

Yes, I’m talking about the fantasy that green “renewable” energy can replace our current, efficient and abundant fuel sources like coal, oil and gas – and, of course, our cleanest and greenest source of energy, nuclear, which the left will barely acknowledge. read more
