    Germany, the best or worst-case scenario Founder of New Europe In an act of peaceful power exhibition, Muslims in Rome perform their Friday prayers in front of the Colosseum. For the next prayer, why not in Piazza San Pietro in the Vatican City. Conspiracy is a micro affair and never applies to large-scale cases. At the macro level, reality is what you see. Nothing more and nothing less. For the past one hundred years, at the macro level, Germany has been writing the history of Europe. Germany pulled Europe into two world wars, which cost around 100 million lives. Nearly...

    In Milton’s Paradise Lost, Satan famously says “the mind is its own place and in itself can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven”. Satan is in Hell while he makes this rousing speech to his fellow fallen angels. Surrounded by darkness and pain, he is urging himself and those listening to ignore their reality. Satan would have it that you and I were that blind as well. And we have been. For years, Americans have lived in a country that has grown stagnate. We are often told that innovation is growing “exponentially” while “Moore’s Law” is touted...

  • Self-healing potassium batteries: A cheap, long-life rival to lithium

    Lithium is expensive, environmentally questionable in large volumes, and tends to catch on fire from time to time. It's the best solution we've currently got for EV and device battery storage, but other alternatives are starting to surface, and one that could actually make a fair bit of sense is the potassium metal battery.

    As the sole Republican vote for convicting President Trump in his impeachment trial in the Senate, Mitt Romney (R-Ut) cited his "conscience" as the basis for siding with Democrats who have been eager to oust Trump since the day he was elected. "Many in my own Party tried to convince me that there had to be evidence of a crime before a president should be removed from office," the Senator said. "But my belief in God tells me that, if in my heart I'm convinced he is guilty, I must vote to take him out." "The parade of government officials...

    AMERICAN GREATNESS ^ | Dec 2, 2019 | Angelo Codevilla
    The moment that Hillary Clinton’s reference to those disinclined to vote for her as “deplorables” and “irredeemables” made this unmistakable, Donald Trump’s victory became possible. The people who voted for Trump, many despite reservations about him, did so seeking a shield against insult and injury from above. But the 2016 results confirmed the ruling class in its judgment, and emboldened it to act in “resistance” and in ways no one had ever imagined. Ordinary Americans in voting for Trump got a loud voice on their behalf, but no shield. Between 2016 and 2020, we have been pressed as never before...
  • Is California becoming Premodern?

    11/01/2019 1:57:53 PM PDT · by a little elbow grease · 55 replies ^ | 10/30/19 | Victor Davis Hanson
    (snip) --- Has California become premodern? Millions of fed-up middle-class taxpayers have fled the state. Their presence as a stabilizing influence is sorely missed. About one-third of the nation’s welfare recipients live in California. Millions of poor newcomers require enormously expensive state health, housing, education, legal and law-enforcement services. California is now a one-party state. Democrats have supermajorities in both houses of the legislature. Only seven of the state’s 53 congressional seats are held by Republicans. The result is that there is no credible check on a mostly coastal majority.

    Hello fellow FReepers. Don't post much these days but I lurk a lot. Haven't seen a thread on this topic - if I've missed it, then a link would be appreciated and/or I'll ask the mods to delete this. Like many of you, I'm a big fan of the President and all he's accomplished. I hope his second term is even better. Having hope for the (near) future is a pleasant change from previous administrations. Sadly, Trump is just one man, and he has formidable and powerful forces stacked against him. I have no doubt he will continue to surprise...

Thiel has a good brain, and an ethical heart.
  • Ocasio-Cortez: Guarantee of a Home Comes Before ‘Privilege to Earn a Profit’

    Breitbart ^ | 4 June 2019 | Hannah Bleau
    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) says the guarantee to a home takes precedence over another individual’s ability to earn a profit. The New York lawmaker made the controversial remarks during a town hall event in the Bronx. She minimized the significance of her “luxury” living arrangements during the event, comparing it to a public housing unit she recently visited in Queens. “I move into this building, and it’s marketed as a ‘luxury’ building in D.C.,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “It’s an efficient building, it’s clean, it has public space, it has a rooftop garden—y’all watching my Instagram—it has clean air, it has clean water....

    At a campaign event in Keokuk, Iowa on the morning he officially announced his run for the Democratic presidential nomination, former Rep. Beto O'Rourke strongly endorsed the Green New Deal, saying: "Not to be dramatic, but literally, the future of the world depends on us right now here where we are." "This is the final chance," O'Rourke said. "The scientists are unanimous on this. We have no more than 12 years to take incredibly bold action on this crisis."

    Two contrasting approaches to population growth: ~First, the American policy, per the Census Bureau: The Census Bureau is projecting that the population of the United States will hit 404 million by 2060, and nearly all of the net growth will be from immigrants and their families. A new analysis of the figures shows that of the 79 million more in 2060, 75 million will be legal and illegal immigrants and their families, a population the size of France and Belgium combined. Without immigration, according to the Census analysis from the Center for Immigration Studies, the U.S. population would increase by...

    We’re getting close to the end now. Can you feel it? I do. It’s in the news, on the streets, and in your face every day. You can’t tune it out anymore, even if you wanted to. Where once there was civil debate in the court of public opinion, we now have censorship, monopoly, screaming, insults, demonization, and, finally, the use of force to silence the opposition. There is no turning back now. The political extremes are going to war, and you will be dragged into it even if you consider yourself apolitical. There are great pivot points in history,...

    The old man walked slowly through the dry, fallen leaves of autumn, his practiced eye automatically choosing the bare and stony places in the trail for his feet. There was scarcely a sound as he passed, though his left knee was stiff with scar tissue. He grunted occasionally as the tight sinews pulled. Damn chainsaw, he thought. Behind him, the boy shuffled along, trying to imitate his grandfather, but unable to mimic the silent motion that the old man had learned during countless winter days upon this wooded mountain in pursuit of game. He's fifteen years old, the old man...

    The four decades since 2016 have seen a breathtaking restoration of the Republic of the United States of America.  Looking back from 2056, the historians and pundits say it was inevitable. The United States had enormous energy resources, an educated and ethical workforce, a history of entrepreneurial spirit. The fruits of the digital industrial age, genome processing, and robotic development were on the edge of explosion. The resurgence back from the malaise and blame America thinking of the Obama administration was certain to happen, with a wealthy, prosperous, powerful and free America the obvious result. It wasn't that way....

    It’s the year 2038. The word “flavor” has fallen into disuse. Sugar is the new cigarettes, and we have managed to replace salt with healthy plants.
 We live in a society in which we eat fruit grown using genetics. We drink synthetic wine, scramble eggs that do not come from chickens, grill meat that was not taken from animals, and roast fish that never saw the sea. Was this what we had in mind when we started seeking transparency, traceability, and sustainability of our food system many years ago in the early aughts? About a decade ago, we lived through...
