  • Coronavirus: Why everyone was wrong

    This is not an accusation, but a ruthless taking stock [of the current situation]. I could slap myself, because I looked at Sars-CoV2- way too long with panic. I am also somewhat annoyed with many of my immunology colleagues who so far have left the discussion about Covid-19 to virologist and epidemiologist. I feel it is time to criticise some of the main and completely wrong public statements about this virus. Firstly, it was wrong to claim that this virus was novel. Secondly, It was even more wrong to claim that the population would not already have some immunity against...

    I share with you a letter I wrote to friends in 1999, on the day of my wife's naturalization ceremony Vice President Mike Pence paid tribute to 16 new Americans from 12 different nations Thursday at a naturalization ceremony in Washington. Ken Cuccinelli, acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, gave the oath. The Pledge of Allegiance was recited, and “The Star-Spangled Banner” was sung. No one thought for a moment of taking a knee. On the contrary, the new citizens who immigrated here from a variety of countries – including Turkey, Ethiopia and El Salvador – were all...

    Elements of the left are claiming now that America’s national parks are built on systemic racism. “The outdoors and public lands suffer from the same systemic racism that the rest of our society does,” Joel Pannell, associate director of the Sierra Club, said in an ABC report, titled “America’s Great White Outdoors.” The report called the parks “stubborn bastions of self-segregation.”

And now, get ready Well, get ready to add another discrimination category, one not currently recognized by U.S. labor law - the Hindu caste system. It's so foreign to our system that there's not even a law against it! Not yet, anyway.

  • Seattle Mayor calls on council to investigate, possibly expel Sawant

    Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan issued a letter Tuesday calling on city councilmembers to open an investigation into Kshama Sawant, and possibly expel her from the dais. Durkan points to what she labels “disorderly or otherwise contemptuous behavior” from Councilmember Sawant. In the letter directly addressed to Council President Lorena Gonzalez, she cites a handful of specific incidents. That includes: Allegations that Sawant violated City hiring rules by giving decision-making authority to Socialist Alternative, a complaint dating back to late-2018/early-2019 Charges filed in early February by the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission accusing Sawant of using her position and resources as...

    “The Simpsons” won’t have any repeats of Hank Azaria voicing Apu. The producers behind the show issued a statement Friday saying that from now on, its characters of color will be voiced by actors of color only. “Moving forward, ‘The Simpsons’ will no longer have white actors voice non-white characters,” the statement read. News of the decision comes less than an hour after Mike Henry announced he will no longer voice the character of Cleveland Brown on fellow Fox animated comedy “Family Guy.”

    The Seattle Times ^ | 6/24/2020 | Danny Westneat
    After the shootings in the past few days near the Capitol Hill anti-police protest zone, the call went out, paradoxically, for the help of the one thing the protest is most arguing against. “Our movement should demand and insist that the Seattle Police fully investigate this attack and be held accountable to bring the killer(s) to justice,” said Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant in a statement. One paragraph later she re-upped her demand, however, to “defund” these same police. It wasn’t just Sawant with the suddenly mixed message. City Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda noted in a Monday meeting that “we want...

    The world is facing a time of great uncertainty. Amidst a pandemic, a global recession, and immense civil unrest, we are seeing global democracy also come under attack. China is using the current state of the world as an opportunity to continue their imperialist prospects by cracking down on the formerly autonomous city of Hong Kong and creeping into India.  The EU has been reluctant to condemn China for its actions in Hong Kong and its role in allowing COVID-19 spread. This leaves the United States with great responsibility, standing as the lone maverick against despotism. The question now becomes: what...

    The Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades. The Black Lives Matter movement claims that only whites can be racists. And while justifying violence to achieve “social justice,” the movement’s goal is to overthrow our society to replace it with a Marxist one. Many members of the black community would be shocked to learn that the intellectual godfathers of this movement are mostly white Communists, “queers”...

    Joe Biden said that he expects to announce his vice presidential pick around Aug. 1. The information on the expected running mate announcement timeline came during a virtual fundraiser on Wednesday featuring former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, with around 200 donors, according to a pool report. That means the Democratic vice presidential presumptive nominee will be known a few weeks before the Democratic National Convention, scheduled for Aug. 17 to 20 in Milwaukee, but may largely take place via virtual speeches due to the coronavirus pandemic. Biden said earlier on Wednesday that he could see the convention taking...

    You might say that the English Channel created England.The English Channel enabled England to maintain its independence from Europe and develop a somewhat different culture. For example, the English legal system (which we Americans inherited) is different from the European civil law system. Militarily, the English Channel served as a natural moat that protected England from more than one invasion. Napoleon himself declared, “Let us be masters of the Channel for six hours, and we are masters of the world.” But he was unable to do that. And yet, if the current inhabitants of England (and the rest of the...
