    Wood Buried Under Ocean Floor Thousands of Miles at Sea October 22, 2019 | David F. Coppedge Wood chips hundreds of feet deep in ocean sediments have been found. How did they get there? Watch out for ocean trees. Geology researchers from the University of Southern California (USC) went boring into ocean sediments near India, and were surprised to find direct evidence that “Catastrophic events carry forests of trees thousands of miles to a burial at sea.” They pulled up six cores of sediment from the ocean floor a thousand feet below the surface. The cores were extracted miles apart...

    In a bustling Tampa courtroom, a lawyer is making the case for keeping guns out of the hands of a man named Anthony Ballard. Judge Ron Ficarrotta flips through court paperwork and reads the alarming details: How a friend said Ballard, 30, showed him a violent and graphic video of a gunman shooting down patrons in a bank. Ballard told his friend: “This will be me one day. I’m gonna be the greatest mass shooter. I’m gonna shoot the most people ever and be famous for it.” The file recounts how deputies tracked Ballard down and how he begged them...

    She’s a left wing Bernie protege, but the Democratic establishment hates her more than Hillary. Why? Because of her strong consistent message ,lagainst “regime chang wars” - including Obama’s destruction of Libya , which she was the only House Democrat to denounce. Serving in a field medical unit in the Iraq war she has seen wars cost to lives and bodies of our young brave service people, so her message against wasteful regime change wars carries force with listeners — and the Dems hate that. So do the neocon NeverTrump Republicans, who DESPISE Tulsi I couldn’t vote for her ,...

    WeWork's board of directors has accepted a takeover bid from investor SoftBank, handing control of the office-sharing startup to the Japanese firm, according to a source directly familiar with the matter. The deal on Tuesday valuing the troubled co-working company at $8billion is a far cry from the $47billion valuation WeWork received from SoftBank in a funding round in January. WeWork chairman Adam Neumann could be paid roughly $1.7 billion to forfeit control of the company he founded should it be purchased by SoftBank, a new report claims. The compensation package would include a $1 billion stock buyout, $500 million...

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberals held onto power after a closely fought election on Monday but were reduced to a minority government that will need the support in Parliament of a smaller left-leaning party. The vote showed a deeply divided country with the defeated Conservatives winning the popular vote, while a resurgent separatist Bloc Quebecois made big strides in the mainly French-speaking province of Quebec.

    While speaking to reporters on Monday, Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) stated that acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney admitted that the Trump administration held up funding to Ukraine partially due to a desire to have Ukraine carry out an investigation regarding the 2016 election and holding up funds “to fulfill a political purpose is a real problem.” Romney said, “Obviously, what he said in the press conference was of real concern. Because he said, in effect, that they were holding up funding going to Ukraine, in part based upon a desire to have Ukraine carry out an investigation...

    Scandal surrounding Democrat Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) threatens serious repercussions for Democrats' effort to impeach President Trump. Last week, Red State exposed that Hill had simultaneous sexual relationships with at least two different staffers. One of them worked in her official congressional office, a clear violation of the House’s rules forbidding sexual relationships between members of Congress and their official office staff. Hill, married to her now-estranged husband Kenny Heslep for years, brought a 22-year-old woman who was on her campaign staff into their marriage to create a three-way “throuple” relationship during her 2018 run for Congress. Red State reported:...

    The college admissions scandal mom who falsely claimed her son was African-American and Hispanic to increase his chances of getting into a top college was sentenced to three weeks in prison on Wednesday. Marjorie Klapper, 51, copped to paying $15,000 to fudge her son’s ACT exam score in May as part of the nationwide scandal. She also agreed to portray him as a racial minority and a first-generation student on his applications — though both she and her husband graduated from college, prosecutors said. Prosecutors had sought four months behind bars and a fine of $20,000 for Klapper, arguing that...

    Pacific Gas and Electric Co. is getting incinerated by California politicians for shutting off power to two million residents amid heavy, dry winds. The publicly traded San Francisco-based utility has been found responsible for two dozen or so wildfires since 2016, some caused by power lines sagging from steel towers more than a century old. The purpose of the blackouts was to avoid more damage from an aging grid that has not been adequately maintained. In January PG&E filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy to restructure tens of billions of dollars in liabilities, including for wildfire. Democrats, including Gov. Gavin Newsom,...

    SAN FRANCISCO—Californians are facing a potential second round of pre-emptive power outages, with the state’s largest utility working to prevent its equipment from sparking wildfires as hot, gusty winds are forecast later this week. PG&E Corp. said Monday it might cut electricity to parts of 16 counties in the Sierra Foothills and north of San Francisco. About 200,000 households and businesses were notified that they might lose power starting late Wednesday, the bankrupt utility said. At a press conference, PG&E Chief Executive Bill Johnson said shutting off power to hundreds of thousands of customers again might be necessary, given how...

    If you took all the money Democratic Monroe County executive candidate Adam Bello has spent on his campaign, and added all the money Republican incumbent Cheryl DiNolfo has spent, and added in Bello’s money again, you’d have just about as much money as George Soros has spent trying to get Shani Curry Mitchell elected district attorney. By the time the final filing is in, it is likely that one donor supporting one candidate in the district attorney’s race will have ponied up as much money as was contributed by a myriad of donors to both candidates in the race at...

    Eyeing stricter controls in the federal government’s minority contracting program, a House oversight panel on Tuesday is expected to address the findings of a Times investigation that showed that companies received more than $300 million in taxpayer-funded contracts based on unverified claims that their owners were Native American. The committee oversees the U.S. Small Business Administration, which certifies federal contractors as minority-owned. Its subcommittee on investigations will conduct the hearing.

    NordVPN, a virtual private network provider that promises to “protect your privacy online,” has confirmed it was hacked. The admission comes following rumors that the company had been breached. It first emerged that NordVPN had an expired internal private key exposed, potentially allowing anyone to spin out their own servers imitating NordVPN. VPN providers are increasingly popular as they ostensibly provide privacy from your internet provider and visiting sites about your internet browsing traffic. That’s why journalists and activists often use these services, particularly when they’re working in hostile states. These providers channel all of your internet traffic through one...

    Speaker Pelosi and the lawless Democrats are running a historic scam on the American people. For the first time in US history Democrat leaders are running a sham impeachment — that was NEVER voted on in the US House of Representatives — and they are holding the entire proceeding in a secret secluded room away from public viewing and away from cameras. Democrats refuse to allow Republicans ANY CONSIDERATION in the entire process. They will not allow Republicans to call ANY witnesses. Democrats are only leaking tidbits that help them to the media. And Democrats are NOT EVEN CALLING on...

President Trump lashed out at Mitt Romney saying Democrats don’t have to deal with backstabbers like he does after the former Massachusetts governor admitted he was behind a bogus Twitter account used to slam the administration. “I think (Democrats) are lousy politicians. But two things they have — they’re vicious and they stick together. They don’t have Mitt Romney in their midst, they don’t have people like that,” Trump said Monday. Donald...
