The Russian Masterpiece in Syria: Everyone Wins

1 day ago

“Moscow and Damascus have always maintained they are against any form of partition or illegal foreign presence in Syria.”
Moscow has managed to maintain contacts with all parties in the conflict, even in spite of its stance against partition and illegal foreign presence. Trilateral talks between Iran, Turkey and Russia occurred in Astana at Moscow’s urging. Putin managed to bring together in Sochi the Syrian government and opposition groups to discuss the future of Syria. In Geneva, Moscow mediated between Damascus and the international community, shielding Syria from the diplomatic skulduggery of the US and other enemies of Syria.
Turkey, solely as a result of its defeat in Syria, now finds itself in active dialogue with Moscow

Tough Testing

1 day ago

One of the less remarked-upon gender gaps is in college attendance: Young men have fallen far behind young women. Males now make up only 43 percent of college students despite continuing to earn slightly higher average scores on college admission tests.
Perversely, journalist Paul Tough’s much-praised new book, The Years That Matter Most: How College Makes or Breaks Us, calls for America to worsen this inequality by dumping the SAT and ACT for being biased toward boys.
To Tough, college entrance examinations are just another conspiracy to make white boys look good.
One important fact that Tough points out is that prestigious colleges have vastly more money to spend per student than do less famous colleges. Although list-price

Moody’s: Trump Will Cruise To Victory in 2020

1 day ago

Analytics models have been historically accurate every election (except the last one!)
Moody’s Analytics has predicted that Donald Trump will easily win reelection in 2020, with three models showing that the President will secure at least 289 electoral votes and as many as 351.
Moody’s has been highly accurate in predicting the outcome of elections dating back to 1980. The only time the company was incorrect was in 2016, when it predicted Hillary Clinton would narrowly win.
Three different economic models employed by the analytics agency suggest that Trump’s Electoral College victory is on course to surpass the 304-227 count that secured him victory over ‘Crooked’ Hillary.

The projections are based on economic factors,

DC’s Atlantic Council Raked in Funding from Hunter Biden’s Corruption-Stained Employer While Courting his VP Father

1 day ago

The shady arrangement between the Atlantic Council and Burisma – the gas company at the center of the ‘Ukrainegate’ scandal – is just one dubious deal out of many at a DC think tank that has become a clearinghouse for legal corruption.
With its relentless focus on corruption in Russia and Ukraine, the Atlantic Council has distinguished itself from other top-flight think tanks in Washington. Over the past several years, it has held innumerable conferences and panel discussions, issued a string of reports, and published literally hundreds of essays on Russia’s “kleptocracy” and the scourge of Kremlin disinformation.
At the same time, this institution has posed as a faithful partner to Ukraine’s imperiled democracy, organizing

South Africa Sitrep

1 day ago

Around 2008, what is called Xenophobia, broke out. This has been repeated from time to time and to state it simply, the South African blacks kill everyone that they can get their hands on, that hail from anywhere in the rest of Africa. We now have the African Continental Free Trade Agreement and the South Africans seem to be sensitive to truck drivers and other workers from elsewhere in Africa. They are so ‘sensitive’ that they kill them in brutal zenophobic attacks. We don’t call this racism which is a word reserved for dividing blacks and whites. No, of course these crimes are called by the correct word which is fear or hatred of that which is perceived to be foreign. I don’t really see the difference and this is clearly racism

Don’t Mention White

2 days ago

Sometimes you get the hero you need, sometimes you get the hero you deserve, and sometimes you get a worthless dumbass who is neither. And if you’re really unlucky, you might get a whole flock of worthless dumbasses. I speak, of course, of the “conservatives” who spend every minute of every day desperately trying to convince the world how safe and nonthreatening they are. “Frugality, morality, and God bless our troops. Who can hate that? Down with Trump! Please like me!”
These flaccid feebs think the challenge of our time is to oppose Trump, but that’s foolish. Trump, like all presidents, has a shelf life. The actual challenge of our time is to avoid the permanent fate being woven for us by those who wish to turn the U.S. into a

Boardwalk Babies

2 days ago

Known as ‘America’s Playground’, Brooklyn’s Coney Island was home to the weird and the wonderful throughout the 20th century.
A midget city, a wild animal show and a bearded lady were all attractions at New York’s most insalubrious entertainment park.
But few will be aware of one man’s sideshow that not only entertained but saved the lives of thousands of premature babies.
Shocking as it may seem now, physician Martin Couney, dubbed ‘the incubator doctor’, held a stall that displayed a genuine life and death struggle – and proved to be the one of the Island’s most popular attractions.
It also changed the course of American medical science.
At the time premature babies were considered genetically inferior, and were simply left to

6 Warning Signs That Civil Unrest Is Imminent

2 days ago

Dear fellow readers.
This week has been “interesting” in South America. Interesting, indeed, but as in the ancient Chinese curse style.
For those of us in this side of the hemisphere, having been able to witness first-hand, in the front line, how the very same plot that made us get the heck out of our country, is unleashing a vendetta against the countries that have received us Venezuelans.
I know geopolitical issues are not the intention of this blog, but please, allow me to continue. It will be necessary to establish a context of the circumstances. This vendetta I mentioned, has the exact same features that Fidel Castro once sent to Miami, from Mariel, in Cuba (a pilot test?). President Moreno has accused directly to Maduro of

Seeing the Changes in American Society in the 20th Century

2 days ago

What might one learn about the changes in American society through the pages of the Ladies’ Home Journal during the twentieth century?

One of my less rigorous attempts at journalism research involved a look at a century of the magazine’s content for impact on “women’s roles.” for a Media Studies class, graduate level.
Methodology
I read randomly selected issues from the collection at the University of Oklahoma and put together an enormously tedious essay which proved nothing but fulfilled the assignment.  It is a bit interesting, I think and I’ve tried to summarize the more informative points of interest.
[My research was accomplished in this manner: Blah, blah, blah. Listen, when you are in graduate school and the professors like you? They let you turn in crap and

Charles Hugh Smith: Will You Be Richer or Poorer?

2 days ago

Prolific and exceptionally perceptive author Charles Hugh Smith returns to discuss the insights in his just-launched book Will You Be Richer Or Poorer? Profit, Power & AI in a Traumatized World (the first chapter of which can be read for free here)
The current narrative that our standard of living is not only the best it has been in human history, but thanks to modern technology, is now improving at an accelerating rate.
Smith turns this belief on its head, pointing out the many and various ways — many of them “intangible” and not currently measured in dollars — the human condition is fast worsening. Health, purpose, social connection, civil liberties, access to natural resources, career mobility; these are but a few examples.

Paper Beer Bottles & Wooden Cutlery

2 days ago

At first I thought my friend was joking when he told me that Carlsberg, the beer maker, is planning to develop paper beer bottles made from what it calls ‘sustainably-sourced wood fibres.’
Drinking beer out of a paper carton does not sound very appealing. I can’t imagine myself clinking a beer carton before saying ‘cheers.’ But then I should have known that gaining a reputation for being Green was far more important for Carlsberg than improving the quality of its beer.
It is not just Carlsberg who is threatening to get rid of beer bottles. Coca-Cola, Swedish vodka maker Absolut, and the cosmetic group L’Oreal have all jumped on the paper bottle bandwagon.
It is not yet clear whether Carlsberg’s rebranding exercise will meet with

Meet the Black, Transgender Cinderella’s Godmother You’ve All Been Waiting For

3 days ago

Who’s really clamoring to see a black, transgender fairy godmother on cinema screens? Certainly the liberal media. But do audiences really care for woke remakes of childhood classics?
Is there any phrase more guaranteed to ruin a sweet childhood memory than “a modern re-imagining of…”? Especially when ‘modern’ means ‘sanitized’ and ‘injected with pointless social-justice twaddle.’
Enter the black, transgender fairy godmother. According to Hollywood Reporter, Emmy-award winning actor Billy Porter will play the role in Sony Pictures’ upcoming remake of the 1950 Disney classic, alongside Cuban-American actress Camila Cabello as the titular princess. Billy Porter, for the uninitiated, is a gay man.

Satanists Announce Weekly Services at the US Naval Academy

4 days ago

The U.S. Naval Academy has responded to a widely circulated email from the Satanic Temple that claimed they would be holding weekly ‘satanic services’ on the campus.
Shared in an Instagram post by Drunk Old Grad, the email was sent to USNA midshipmen on October 8 and claimed to cater ‘to people who prescribe to The Satanic Temple’s Satanic philosophy.’
‘However all people of any faith background are welcome to attend,’ the email continued.
The email offered to hold discussions of satanic philosophy, along with the ‘literary history of Satan.’
According to the email, the aim of the services would be to ‘promote critical thinking and discussion on Satanic values as they pertain to our lives.’
And while the email was sent out on

Marxism’s Trope: the Vatican Uses ‘the Poor’ as Human Shields

4 days ago

Let’s talk for a few minutes about the Bergoglians’ tactics and how we can easily bat aside the accusations we are already seeing leveled at objectors. Two days in and the screeches of “racist!” and similar nonsense are already being lobbed at people asking awkward questions and making awkward observations.
We are seeing this trope being deployed now especially by the New Paradigm’s Twitter apologists: “Object to those people bowing down to the ‘Pachamama’ statue? You hate the poor, you hate ‘brown people’ [yeah, and that’s not racist at all!]. You’re nothing but a right-wing, white cultural imperialist…” blah blah blah…
Clearing aside all this nonsense will help us see the reality much more clearly.

New York Post: Fox News ‘Misrepresented’ Impeachment Poll

4 days ago

The New York Post released an analysis Saturday, which found Fox News had “mispresented” their poll, suggesting a majority of Americans supported impeachment of President Donald Trump.
Fox News released a poll this week which found that 51 percent of registered voters want President Trump impeached and removed from office, while 4 percent want Trump impeached but want him to stay in office, and 40 percent of voters oppose impeachment. The Fox News poll found that supposedly showed a double-digit increase in the number of voters who wanted Trump impeached and removed from office.
However, according to a New York Post analysis, Fox News misrepresented Americans’ alleged support for impeachment.

The Madness of Extinction Rebellion

4 days ago

Yesterday, in London, I witnessed an eerie, chilling sight: I saw a death cult holding a ceremony in public.
The men and women gathered outside King’s Cross station and formed a circle. They swayed and chanted. They preached about End Times. ‘What will you do when the world gets hot, what, what?’, they intoned, conjuring up images of the hellfire they believe will shortly consume mankind. They sang hymns to their god – science. ‘We’ve got all the science / All that we need / To change the world / Hallelujah’, they sang, rocking side to side as they did so.
They demanded repentance. ‘Buy less, fly less, fry less’, said one placard. Catholics only demand the non-consumption of meat on Fridays, as an act of penance to mark the day

Here’s Why Hillary Is Running Again in 2020

4 days ago

That’s right: Hillary Clinton is running for president again in 2020.  She has actually ramped up her campaign since her defeat in 2016!  From her Twitter feed to university speeches to appearances abroad – from Ireland to Australia to India – the “I’m with her” campaign continues.  The message remains the same: Donald Trump is racist and sexist, and his supporters are deplorable.  Hillary also continues to preach that she won the 2016 popular vote by 3,000,000 votes, but because of the electoral college (that damn Constitution thing) and RussiaRussiaRussia, she was robbed of her rightful prize and place in history.
Her Path to the Nomination
Hillary has a highly plausible path to the Democratic Party nomination, something no

Trans Rights and State-Sponsored Sexual Assault

6 days ago

As a panel of Democrats fell over each other to pander for the rainbow vote at CNN’s LGBTQ town hall, conservatives raged at the inclusion of transgender children, but not at the Dems’ plans to shred the Bill of Rights.
Broadcast live from Los Angeles on Thursday, CNN’s LGBTQ town hall saw nine Democratic presidential candidates take questions from the network’s journalist and from a hand-picked crowd of “LGBTQ stakeholders and members of civic organizations.”
It went exactly as you think it would have. Every candidate promised to pass the Equality Act, a bill that would amend the Civil Rights Act to “prohibit discrimination on the basis of the sex, sexual orientation, gender identity…or sex-based stereotypes,” and reverse

The Lights Went Out in California: That Was the Plan All Along

6 days ago

The power has been out in Northern California. More than 1 million Californians were without electricity, one of modern life’s essentials that is frequently taken for granted. The blackout was done on purpose—to prevent sparks from powerlines that could ignite deadly wildfires.
On the surface, the blackout and its causes are simple to understand. But the deeper causes are complicated, span decades of public policy, and dozens of overlapping unintended—and intended—consequences of decisions, both related and unrelated.
The wind in Northern California is blowing in from dry Nevada, as it often does this time of year. It’s called the “Diablo wind.” In Southern California, the comparable current blowing in from the Mojave Desert is

How Big Tech Smeared Brett Kavanaugh and Protected Jeffrey Epstein

6 days ago

While the New York Times‘ Robin Pogrebin’s and Kate Kelly’s The Education of Brett Kavanaugh turned out to be a giant dud, it did expose Silicon Valley’s complicity in the false smears against the Supreme Court justice.
Reid Hoffman, co-founder of Microsoft’s LinkedIn, and Zynga founder Mark Pincus lent a private jet to Christine Blasey Ford to testify at Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing last year. “We believed then, as we do now, that it’s important to take seriously accusations of violence against women,” Hoffman said.
Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg helped find a lawyer for Ford and advised her on how to sell her story to the public. Any tech exec who appeared to differ from the accepted opinion was reprimanded.

St. George Tucker’s Jeffersonian Constitution

6 days ago

One could argue that there are two basic visions for America: the Hamiltonian and the Jeffersonian. The former is nationalist, calling for centralized power and an industrial, mercantilist society characterized by banking, commercialism, and a robust military. Its early leaders had monarchical tendencies. The latter vision involves a slower, more leisurely and agrarian society, political decentralization, popular sovereignty, and local republicanism. Think farmers over factories.
Both have claimed the mantle of liberty. Both have aristocratic elements, despite today’s celebration of America as democratic. On the Hamiltonian side we can include John Adams, John Marshall, Noah Webster, Henry Clay, Joseph Story, and Abraham Lincoln.

How Active Shooter Drills Are Used To Terrorize the Public Into Supporting Gun Control.

7 days ago

In lieu of the media-generated threat over mass shootings, public schools throughout the country are regularly conducting active shooter drills with some of these drills featuring simulated gun fire to further terrorize children.
(Article by Shane Trejo republished from BigLeaguePolitics.com)
One such drill happened last week in Dayton, OH – the site of a mass shooting in August by an ANTIFA-linked killer which resulted in 10 deaths.
The Dayton Daily News reported about the drill that took place on Oct. 1:
School Resource Officer Amanda Myers said students will meet in their homerooms and will be taken to the auditorium for a presentation about the drill they are about to experience. She said teachers in the building went through

Abortion and Liberty

Reuters reports from Illinois: “Thousands of fetal remains [dead unborn babies] found on property of deceased doctor”
“More than 2,200 preserved fetal remains have been found on the Illinois property of a recently deceased doctor who performed abortions, the Will County sheriff’s office said in a statement. The family and attorney of Ulrich Klopfer, who died on Sept. 3, discovered 2,246 medically preserved fetal remains on Thursday while going through the deceased doctor’s personal property and alerted the local coroner’s office, the sheriff’s office said. ‘The family is cooperating fully with this investigation. There is no evidence that any medical procedures were conducted at the property,’ the

President Trump Is a Choir Boy Compared to Other Recent Presidents

7 days ago

Put in the context of recent presidential history, the media’s objurgating of President Trump, because of his phone call to Ukranian president Volodymyr Zelensky, shows a remarkable lack of knowledge of recent American history or dishonesty—or both.
Laid next to the evil activities of other recent presidents, the Trump-Zelensky phone call is a nothing burger. At most, he asked for Zelensky to investigate what appears to be shady dealings by Hunter Biden in Ukraine at the time his father Joe Biden was vice president.
Compare this activity to most recent presidents.

Luckily, Dems Never Have ‘Personal, Political’ Motives

7 days ago

Today we will answer the question: May a president ask a foreign country to investigate corruption if it serves his “personal, political” interests?
The “personal, political” angle is the last gasp of the impeachment hysterics. (I’m looking at you, Sens. Rob Portman (Ohio), Susan Collins (Maine), Mitt Romney (Utah) and Ben Sasse (Nebraska).)
Yes, Donald Trump is, technically, “president,” and, yes, former Vice President Joe Biden used his government position to withhold foreign aid until the president of Ukraine fired a prosecutor looking into a company paying Biden’s drug addict son millions of dollars for mysterious reasons.
But, the impeachment fanatics assert, by asking a foreign leader to assist in an otherwise legitimate

Return to Russia: Crimeans Tell the Real Story of the 2014 Referendum and Their Lives Since.

7 days ago

SIMFEROPOL, CRIMEA — In early August I traveled to Russia for the first time, partly out of interest in seeing some of the vast country with a tourist’s eyes, partly to do some journalism in the region. It also transpired that while in Moscow I was able to interview Maria Zakharova, spokeswoman of the Foreign Ministry.
High on my travel list, however, was to visit Crimea and Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) — the former a part of Russia, the latter an autonomous republic in the east of Ukraine, neither accurately depicted in Western reporting. Or at least that was my sense looking at independent journalists’ reports and those in Russian media.
Both regions are native Russian-speaking areas; both opted out of Ukraine in 2014. In

Syria – Turkey Again Invades

8 days ago

So it begins:
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has announced that a Turkish military operation into Syria has started.Erdogan said on his official Twitter account Wednesday that the operation, named “Peace Spring,” has begun. He said the operation aims to eradicate “the threat of terror” against Turkey.
Earlier, Turkish television reports said Turkish jets had bombed Syrian Kurdish positions across the border from Turkey.
The plan is as we anticipated. A major goal is to interrupt the M4 highway that runs parallel to the border and allows for troop movements between the east and the west of the Kurdish majority areas. The highway is about 20-30 kilometers from the border. The sector Turkey attacks right now has only a

WHO Admits Polio Outbreak in the Philippines Caused by Polio Vaccines

8 days ago

The polio vaccine has caused an escalating outbreak of polio in the Philippines, according to the World Health Organization and UNICEF, which issued a joint statement admitting the vaccine is causing polio.
“WHO and UNICEF said in a joint statement the polio outbreak in the Philippines is concerning because it is caused by vaccine-derived poliovirus type 2,” writes the Associated Press. “The weakened virus used in vaccines replicates for a short time in children’s intestines and is excreted in their feces.”
Polio vaccines are often cited as a success story proving that vaccines work to eliminate infectious disease. In truth, nearly all the cases of polio in the modern world are caused by polio vaccines themselves.

‘DNA-Based’ Vaccines Are In Our Future: They Will Literally Change Your DNA

8 days ago

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) has launched efforts to create a vaccine that would protect people from most flu strains, all at once, with a single shot. This shot would be a DNA-based vaccine that will literally change your body’s DNA.
With mandatory vaccinations increasingly being legislated, this bodes a very dangerous health future. Politicians and Big Pharma are pouring a lot of money into this and at first glance, it may appear that your health and well-being are their concern.  That could not be further from the truth.
Massachusetts Senator and big spender, Ed Markey, has introduced a bill that would shovel no less than a billion dollars toward the universal flu-vaccine project. Here is a
