  • Astronomers Detect Unexpected Class of Mysterious Circular Objects in Space

    07/13/2020 5:53:24 AM PDT · by Red Badger ^ | 9 JULY 2020 | MICHELLE STARR
    Although we usually have a pretty good handle on all the different kinds of blips and blobs detected by our telescopes, it would be unwise to assume we've seen everything there is to see out there in the big, wide Universe. Case in point: a new kind of signal spotted by radio telescopes, which has astronomers scratching their heads. Four of these strange objects have been detected. All of them are circular in shape, and three are particularly bright around the edges - like a ring, or a bubble that is more opaque around the edges. An international team of...
  • The Chris Plante Show, July 13th - July 17th, 2020, Mon-Fri, 9a-12p ET. WMAL-105.9 FM

    He's on-the-air, and on-fire. Chris Plante from WMAL in DC, is rated 8th of America's Top Talk Radio Show Hosts. His show is the "prep work" for many other shows. And, unlike the others, he pulls no punches, tells it like it is and doesn't take any BS from liberal, demonKKKrat, leftist, commie, socialist, fascist and anarchist callers. He's the guy we'd all like to sit down with and have a dbl-cheeseburger and a cold one, while talking about the state of America, and the crazies who are pulling the strings, behind-the-scenes. Get a fresh refill of your favorite coffee,...

    When you think of riding the subway, laughter and joy aren’t the first words that spring to mind. It’s a cramped place full of grumpy people either coming home from a bad day at work or are just generally upset. Many are glued to their cell phones or “wired up” and have no time for anyone else. Yet if you’re lucky enough, sometimes you can find happiness in a subway train. One such moment was captured when a Belgian advertising agency working for Coca-Cola hired an actor to randomly start laughing on the train. With the tagline–“Happiness starts with a...

    Houston City Councilwoman Abbie Kamin (D) echoes any other left-wing scamp in rebuking the Texas GOP, but she showed unusual brass last week prodding her Twitter followers to phone and badger the party’s supporters. “TX GOP/SREC pulled down the sponsor list for their State Convention that they insist be IN-PERSON in #Houston during a dangerous #COVID surge + increasingly limited ICU capacity,” began Kamin’s tweetstorm last Tuesday. “Here’s the list of elected official & corporate sponsors. Feel free to call them.” Her flunkies doubtless obliged. A day later, the gentlelady from District C heralded Union Pacific’s withdrawal as a convention...

    The Trump administration is cracking down on leakers by planting information to see if it gets out to reporters, reports Axios. President Donald Trump’s chief of staff "[Mark] Meadows told me he was doing that," one former White House official told the news outlet. "I don't know if it ever worked." Politico last week reported that the Trump administration opened an internal investigation to try to uncover who leaked intelligence about Russians paying the Taliban to kill American soldiers following a New York Times report titled, "Russia Secretly Offered Afghan Militants Bounties to Kill U.S. Troops, Intelligence Says."
  • Trump Says He's Working To Get 10 More Icebreakers For The Coast Guard From "A Certain Place"

    President Donald Trump says his Administration is working to secure 10 icebreakers for the U.S. Coast Guard. He also claimed that these ships would be cheaper to acquire than that service's future Polar Security Cutters, a new class of heavy icebreakers, the first of which is now under construction. This comes just over a month after Trump ordered the Coast Guard to review its existing icebreaker plans and to look into the possibility of buying or leasing additional ice-capable ships, including nuclear-powered types.

    You can chant “Black Lives Matter” in Florissant, but you’d better not paint it in the middle of North Lindbergh Boulevard. Following multiple warnings, police arrested two people after a few protesters started to paint “Black Lives Matter” in the street for the third time. “We are trying to send a message that Black lives matter, so instead of sending police in riot gear over here why don’t they try a dialogue and listen to what we are asking?” said Tina Richards, 57, of Cahokia, who was among the 50 to 70 protesters outside police headquarters on Sunday. BLM protester...

    ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski has reportedly been suspended without pay by ESPN for saying “f--- you” to Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley in an email. Hawley had sent a letter to NBA commissioner Adam Silver, complaining about the social justice messages NBA players are allowed to wear on the back of their jerseys, and Woj was responding to a press release Hawley’s office had sent to him. Woj apologized publicly and to his ESPN colleagues, but it doesn’t appear that’s had an effect on his suspension (which ESPN has yet to confirm or comment on). So NBA players have taken up the...

    Not only did the controversial Ukrainian energy firm get a deal with USAID while Hunter Biden was on the board, but Joe Biden's energy advisor, Amos Hochstein, promoted the very program which worked to legitimize Burisma amid the allegations. As an Obama official, Hochstein testified repeatedly to Congress, urging lawmakers to help "reform" Ukraine's energy sector to mitigate Putin's advances

    Little Lindsey’s gonna issue another subpoena. – Not that anything is likely to ever come of it, but Senator Lindsey Graham tweeted this on Sunday: Graham’s latest bit of Kabuki Theater came after the former Special Counsel had an op-ed about the Roger Stone case published in the Washington Post under his name. No one knows who actually wrote op-ed for Mr. Mueller, but obviously someone did since he clearly demonstrated during his House testimony last year that he is barely able to put two sentences together without reading from a prepared text. In any event, Mueller won’t be shaking...

    Lewis Hamilton has called on Formula One and his fellow drivers to stay focused on the sport's anti-racism stance and present a less chaotic image before next Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix. The six-time world champion said after winning Sunday's Styrian Grand Prix that a number of drivers wanted to stop the pre-race anti-racism gestures and that he feels some teams are not doing enough to show solidarity with the movement.

    The backlash has begun. Repudiation of the cancel culture, the looting of neighborhoods, the defaming of our nation’s history, the destruction of public monuments, attacks on the police, and – yes – the non-stop dishonesty of the liberal media and vilification of President Trump, is cropping up in ways big and small, and it will grow. Americans are fed up and they are angry. Increasingly, they will push back; polling shows Democrat candidate Joe Biden’s lead over Trump is shrinking as a result.

    China is seeking to become the world’s only superpower by usurping the United States with a government-directed “campaign of theft and malign influence”, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director said on Tuesday. In a wide-ranging attack on Beijing’s behaviour on the world stage delivered at the conservative think tank Hudson Institute, Christopher Wray said that the counter-intelligence and economic espionage threat from China represented the “greatest long-term threat to our nation’s information and intellectual property, and to our economic vitality”. China’s “generational fight” to usurp the US was playing out in fields ranging from local politics to industries...

    Fifty-five-plus books on the table and more on the way. Charter Schools and Their Enemies, another bestseller, is hot off the press. The Thomas Sowell corpus stands as one of the rare and most impressive monuments of massive and meticulous research ever erected on this earth by one person. He came up from 1930s poverty-stricken Jim Crow North Carolina, a high school dropout, a stint with the United States Marine Corps, scraping and clawing his way through the streets of post-Renaissance Harlem and then the halls of Harvard, Columbia, and the University of Chicago (Ph.D.), and now he has four...

    It’s just the flu, bro. Herd immunity, or close to it, has almost gone throughout the USA. In fact it has been in NY and the Northeast for a while now. We just have maybe a month of elevated cases in Texas before it has to go down, just as it has gone down everywhere else. Seems like immunity comes in so many forms - antibodies, T cells, just being healthy, type O blood, previous colds caused by a different CV. So I no longer think that herd immunity formula indicating about 50% of the population needs to catch this....

    The talking points on Obamagate are changing, and not in a good way. – Congressman Jim Jordan was on with Maria Bartiromo on Sunday, expressing his frustration with the lack of any indictments from the John Durham investigation of the investigators. The takeaway from this interview is not at all encouraging. Here’s a clip: Note the consistent, repeated expression of “hope” from Jordan. He hopes that there will be indictments; he hopes that something will happen this summer, which is a third of the way over. He hopes Durham will at least issue a report before the election. Those expressions...
  • Judge Sullivan's Appeal for 'En Banc' Hearing Has Good Chance at Success

    Judge Emmet Sullivan's refusal to abide by the D.C. Circuit Court's decision to dismiss the Flynn case and subsequent appeal for an "en banc" decision is not without precedent. Flying under the radar is the role that Judge Sullivan has played in simultaneously overseeing both the Michael Flynn case and a major lawsuit against Trump. In Blumenthal v. Trump, Jerry Nadler, who oversaw the House impeachment of Trump, and some 200 congressional Democrats sought to sue the president according to the obscure "Emoluments Clause." The basic contention is that Trump is in a compromising position because his business holdings occasionally...
