    Leonard Susskind interview - If the deep laws of the universe had been ever so slightly different, human beings wouldn't, and couldn't, exist. All explanations of this exquisite fine-tuning, obvious and not-so-obvious, have problems or complexities.

    In the wake of COVID0-19’s economic destruction, policymakers face the challenging task of kickstarting the economy and re-opening the country for business. Unemployment rates have spiked, reaching a staggering 14.7 million in April. Three out of four U.S. small businesses have applied for government assistance—82 percent of which are manufacturers. A successful relaunch must include efforts to eliminate unnecessary frictions to economic activity, such as outdated regulations. Legal threats to economic growth must also be avoided. Fortunately, that is exactly what happened when the Supreme Court decided Thryv, Inc. v. Click-to-Call Technologies last month. While the question before the court turned on...

    Picking up on our last video about the Newsweek report that the US has been funding bat coronavirus 'gain of function' research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, we dig further into the "Was covid-19 created in a lab?" debate. Digging into the biochemistry of viruses, we are struck in particular by a genetic string of RNA in covid-19 -- specifically the polybasic furin cleavage site PRRA -- that has all the appearance of an "insert" (i.e., something that does NOT look like a natural mutation) Chris walks through the science in today's video. But as he does, he's expresses...

    GENEVA (16 March 2020) UN human rights experts* today urged States to avoid overreach of security measures in their response to the coronavirus outbreak and reminded them that emergency powers should not be used to quash dissent.While we recognize the severity of the current health crisis and acknowledge that the use of emergency powers is allowed by international law in response to significant threats, we urgently remind States that any emergency responses to the coronavirus must be proportionate, necessary and non-discriminatory, the experts said. Their appeal echoes the recent call by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to...

    Under Beijing's civil-military fusion strategy, the PLA is sponsoring research on gene editing, human performance enhancement, and more. We may be on the verge of a brave new world indeed. Today’s advances in biotechnology and genetic engineering have exciting applications in medicine — yet also alarming implications, including for military affairs. China’s national strategy of military-civil fusion (军民融合) has highlighted biology as a priority, and the People’s Liberation Army could be at the forefront of expanding and exploiting this knowledge. The PLA’s keen interest is reflected in strategic writings and research that argue that advances in biology are contributing to...

    Today, Im going to try to show you how and why we know that in the case of a pandemic like the one were in, surrounded by doubts and uncertainties, there are still a series of measures that we can and, more importantly, must take. But also, how these measures are hardly ever taken, and if they are, not in the correct fashion. This has to date led us into a ton of preventable misery and death. If only we would listen. And theres still more we can do to prevent more mayhem, there is at every step of the...

    Much-hyped Moderna mRNA-1273 Covid-19 Vaccine Uses Aborted Fetal Cells Sanofi Pasteurs Version Does Not (Clearwater, FL) In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, pharmaceutical companies are racing to provide a vaccine to prevent further spread of the disease. Unfortunately, Moderna, the company that has been recently touted in news headlines for its developing mRNA-1273 vaccine to fight the virus, uses aborted fetal cell cells. Debi Vinnedge, Executive Director of Children of God for Life, a prolife organization whose mission is to end the use of aborted fetal material in vaccines and medicines, said her suspicions were raised after checking Modernas...

    Yesterday the World Health Organization officially declared Covid-19 a pandemic (like we didnt already know this.) As well, President Trump addressed the nation, closing American borders to all flights from Europe and announcing some ways he intends to help the people of the United States financially. In unofficial terms, this is sh#t getting real. Things are going to get worse possibly much worse before they get better. Illness completely aside, this will cause financial problems that many folks will feel for years after the pandemic is over. The biggest question people are asking now is, When? When will...
  • Progressive's Use of Hypotheticals Illustrated by LA Times Article

    Many of the proposals of those who want a disarmed society are founded in wishful thinking. Hypothetical examples, based on false assumptions about the nature of reality, are put forward as if they are fact. One of the most blatant and one-sided examples of this was recently published in the Los Angeles Times. The title of the piece is How many mass shootings might have been prevented by stronger gun laws?, by Rahul Mukherjee, on 26 February, 2020. The article lists five types of restrictive gun laws and considers how they might have stopped 167 mass killings over the last...

    MADISON — It’s been pretty clear that the New Green Deal would be a disaster for business and for consumers. Now a new study confirms just how disastrous the environmental/wealth redistribution plan would be for Wisconsin. Wisconsin families would be shackled with $40,000 in new costs, and the Dairy State’s struggling agricultural sector would be crippled, according to the multi-state analysis authored by the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) and Power the Future. Will Flanders, research director for the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, contributed to the study.The Green New Deal — as championed by liberals such as U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez...

    Liberal billionaire Godfather of the Left George Soros thinks Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg should not be in charge of Facebook. Soros wrote an op-ed for The New York Times Jan. 31, fretting that there appears to be an informal mutual assistance operation or agreement developing between Trump and Facebook in which Facebook will help President Trump to get re-elected and Mr. Trump will, in turn, defend Facebook against attacks from regulators and the media. [Emphasis added.] His solution: Zuckerberg and Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg should not be left in control of Facebook. [Emphasis added.]
