    NY Review of Books ^ | 10/18/2020 | Oshkalaboomboom
    I'm on a lot of different websites, mostly private ones, that feature books, magazines, tv shows, movies, you name it. If it's in a digital format it's there. Usually I just browse and ignore but this latest issue of the New York Book Review had a cover that really tweaked my curiosity. I expected a good amount of TDS inside but I hoped for at least a small bit of balance. As a New Yorker would say, fuhgedaboutit. The closest it came to an opposing viewpoint was one author blaming Democratic complacency in 2016 for our current state of affairs....
  • Another Reason Trump Needs To Win.Major Projects Still Under Construction.Remember Seeing Unfinished Buildings In 1990/91 And Maybe 2009?

    Lets take Florida to start with.There are likely hundreds of major apartment,condo,retail centers,resorts that may have started going up in 2018/2019. Maybe 1/2 way there. And the same for the at least the booming states. Odds are that right now, we may have a few thousand construction projects that are either 30/40/50% built. And we see them. Now can you imagine what will happen if Biden wins? Right! half ass built condo buildings,shells of retail centers.Major resorts that had to stop construction because either banks or investors stopped funding the projects.Take a look at what is going on in Port...
  • Ideology in Science Is Destroying Trust

    The Epoch Times ^ | October 14, 2020 | Wesley J. Smith
    Ideology in Science Is Destroying Trust Science should never be tainted by ideology. After all, science isn’t supposed to be about political beliefs but is a powerful method for learning about and understanding the physical universe.Science’s tools are decidedly empirical, i.e., observation, measurement, experimentation, falsification, and the like. To be effective, science must be pursued objectively. The point is to determine what is—not what one wants to be—real.Which is why I am so alarmed that highly respected science and medical journals are becoming so political. For example, Science—one of the world’s most respected scientific publications—recently published a stridently ideological column...

    The Stream ^ | October 14, 2020 | Clint Roberts
    Critical Theory’s War on Critical Thinking A Virginia school district has decided that critical questions about Critical Theory “will not be tolerated.” Free speech is great and all, they say, but it is “outweighed” by the importance of dealing with social injustice and systemic racism. In other words, if taxpayers don’t like spending thousands of their dollars on foolish and destructive indoctrination for their kids, that is just too bad. They are, by default, in the wrong. What is “Critical Theory” Anyway? Its roots actually go back to some of those dastardly dead, white European intellectuals. Specifically it originated among neo-Marxists,...

    Maxine Waters Republican challenger Joe Collins is made waves on Twitter Saturday after releasing a campaign video shot at Maxine Waters’ $6 million dollar mansion. In the video, Collins says “Maxine does not live in her district. But I do. I was born right here in South L.A., in a place Maxine refuses to live. Maxine Waters does not drink our water. She does not breathe our air. And while she sits here in her mansion, our district is in ruins.” “And why doesn’t Maxine Waters want to live in her own district? Because she doesn’t want to suffer the...

    Now didn't we go through this scenario with Hillary? All these very wealthy leaders/VIP's from foreign nations giving the Clinton's millions and millions assuming that she was going to win the election in 2016? Is this what's going on with Hunter and the Biden family? So what happens should Joe Biden lose? Will all of these investors/and or leaders from a few European nations demand that Hunter send back the money?

    ..............After drilling into the stalagmites and pulling out cylinders of rock, the team could see an obvious transition between two layers. On one side were old minerals that were part of the original stalagmites; on the other were newer layers that had been laid down after the fragments were broken off by the cave’s former users. By measuring uranium levels on either side of the divide, the team could accurately tell when each stalagmite had been snapped off for construction. Their date? 176,500 years ago, give or take a few millennia.

    There has been a lot of discussion, especially here on FR, in disjointed threads on other topics. Would some of you who have commented on this please weigh in here. This is my understanding of the Constitution and Statutory Law that supports elections. *There is an "Election Day" stipulated in the Constitution. *States are on their own as to HOW they "certify" their electors *There is no Constitutional date given for when the electors must be certified. *In (I think) the 23rd Amendment the date for delivering the elector slates to the Joint Session of Congress to be counted (2...

    Odds are, we are also saying the same thing. We went thru this in 2016, when at some point, Hillary was ahead by 14 points in October. Yet, Hillary was never ahead of Trump from the time she entered the race. Biden was probably never ahead of Trump. No network would ever dare to give Trump his realistic/obvious 10 point lead. Just look at all of the latest polls/internal polling/what we are hearing on conservative radio programs. All guests/pollsters that call into Glenn Beck/Sean and the rest are all telling us they they expect a Trump win/and or another landslide....
