    I recently came across a quotation by Vincent van Gogh, and it triggered something in me. “There may be a great fire in our soul, but no one ever comes to warm himself by it, all that passers-by can see is a little smoke,” van Gogh wrote, in an 1880 letter to his brother, Theo. The line haunted me for days; I was struck by this concept of the fire within. How many people do we pass every single day who are carrying around raging fires — who have a passion or a pain inside that is so great they...
  • Trump: NeverTrumper Republicans are worse than the Do Nothing Dems

    Donald J Trump: The Never Trumper Republicans, though on respirators with not many left, are in certain ways worse and more dangerous for our Country than the Do Nothing Democrats. Watch out for them, they are human scum! Never Trumper Republican John Bellinger, represents Never Trumper Diplomat Bill Taylor (who I don’t know), in testimony before Congress! Do Nothing Democrats allow Republicans Zero Representation, Zero due process, and Zero Transparency... ....Does anybody think this is fair? Even though there was no quid pro quo, I’m sure they would like to try. Worse than the Dems!
  • IBM casts doubt on Google’s claims of quantum supremacy

    *Update, 23 October, 5:40 a.m.: A study from Google claiming quantum supremacy, accidentally leaked online last month, has now been published in Nature. The Google group reiterates its claim that its 53-qubit computer performed, in 200 seconds, an arcane task that would take 10,000 years for Summit, a supercomputer IBM built for the Department of Energy that is currently the world’s fastest. But IBM appears to have already rebutted Google’s claim. On 21 October, it announced that, by tweaking the way Summit approaches the task, it can do it far faster: in 2.5 days. IBM says the threshold for quantum...
  • O’Rourke says Trump’s ‘shit-eating smirk’ during Florida campaign rally encouraged El Paso shooting

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 23, 2019 | Madison Dibble
    Beto O’Rourke claimed President Trump’s response to a rally attendee who shouted that Americans should “kill” illegal immigrants led to the shooting in El Paso, Texas. During an interview with the Washington Post, O’Rourke was asked about his statements from earlier in the week when he compared the Trump administration to the Third Reich. He claimed that Trump has a pattern of comments that show he is worthy of the comparison. “He’s telling that rally in Florida, ‘What are we going to do about these people who are coming here?’ And someone yells out, ‘shoot them,’” O’Rourke said while retelling...

    GOP House member Matt Gaetz is condemning Democrats for concealing their impeachment proceedings from Republicans. In a fiery speech Wednesday, Gaetz was joined by a number of his Republican colleagues who attempted storm into a facility where Democrats were looking into classified materials as part of their inquiry. Gaetz said if Democrats plan to pursue their inquiry, Americans have a right to a transparent investigation. He added, that investigation has been anything but straight forward so far. His comments comes as Senator Lindsey Graham finalizes a resolution to formally condemn the House impeachment inquiry.

    The Atlantic ^ | October 23, 2019 | Sarah Longwell
    Jeff Flake has speculated that 35 or more Republican senators might vote in an impeachment trial to remove Trump from office, but only if the vote were held in secret. Whatever the real number is, the senators face a collective-action problem. Politically, their safest bet is to move as one, announcing their openness to removal as a bloc. The president can say what he wants about this or that senator. But he wouldn’t be able to claim—with any credibility beyond his most cultlike followers—that a group composed of 10 or more Republican senators is just a cabal of dishonest, no-good...

    Busted on Sunday for his Twitter nom de twit, Sen. Willard M. Romney whined, “Being called a lurker is a new low.” No, Willard, being a lurker is the new low. Obviously, Romney’s official Massachusetts gubernatorial portrait, unveiled at the State House more than a decade ago, is going to need an update. At the very least, the identifying plate at the bottom of the frame will have to be replaced with a new one: “Gov. Pierre Delecto 2003-07.” Actually, don’t we need a whole new painting? Lose the old one of Willard in his usual gray business suit, hands...

    They live in different places, work at different universities and dedicate their careers to studying different topics. But there's one thing at least four of this year's US Nobel Prize laureates share. They're immigrants. That's in keeping with a long-running trend, according to a recent report from the National Foundation for American Policy. Immigrants have won 38% of the Nobel Prizes awarded to Americans in chemistry, medicine and physics since 2000, and 35% of the Nobel Prizes awarded to Americans in those fields since 1901, the foundation says. This year, French-born Esther Duflo and Indian-born Abhijit Banerjee -- both professors...

    [Catholic Caucus] The ‘Sunshine’ Synod Sunshine is a good thing. It's becoming more apparent that these various synods held in Rome aren't really synods at all, not in the authentic sense of what a synod is supposed to be, anyway. In the real world of synods, some pressing issue in need of deliberation and thinking and discussing and praying over is brought before a somewhat large number of bishops and, after some time, they provide the Holy Father with some consultation on how to address or approach whatever the given issue is. This current synod, along with past ones, only has...

    “I refuse to go to movies anymore. I don’t want to support Hollywood’s politics.” How many readers have heard or uttered a variation of the previous sentence over the years? Oh well, annoying and uninformed as the politics of Hollywood’s leading lights may be, they’re great at their chosen profession. Too bad they don’t keep their politics to themselves as they all-too-often know not of what they speak. But it says here that the movies and television shows produced by the left-leaning entertainment industry are way too good to miss all because of policy and/or political disagreements. It seems many...

    The Post-Standard ^ | October 23, 2019 | Geoff Herbert
    More than a dozen Democratic candidates are still vying for the nomination in the 2020 presidential race, possibly living the door open to another: Hillary Clinton. The Washington Post reports two sources close to Clinton say she’s still considering entering the 2020 race for the White House, potentially setting up a rematch with President Donald Trump. The newspaper cites 17 state and national party leaders who expressed concerns about the Democratic field, still large and filled with weaknesses after four debates. A new CNN poll shows Joe Biden has widened his lead to 34 percent, ahead of Sen. Elizabeth Warren...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Four protests are planned today for President Donald Trump’s visit to Pittsburgh to speak at the Marcellus Shale Coalition Insight Conference downtown. The first protest began at 9 a.m. at the Gateway Center T station in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. The protesters marched from the T station over to Point State Park, where they blocked the roads near the Wyndham Hotel. The protesters carried a banner that read “Our solidarity will defeat White Nationalists,” and chanted, “Rise up,” and “You are not welcome here Donald Trump.”

    New American ^ | October 23, 2019 | Alex Newman
    Under the guise of keeping America “competitive” in the looming high-tech future, the globalist Council on Foreign Relations is urging policymakers at all levels to dramatically expand the size and scope of government. The bloated welfare states in Sweden and Denmark are cited as examples of the “advantages” of massive government programs to take care for people. Without the sort of fundamental transformation of America envisioned by the CFR, the nation will supposedly be left behind in the emerging new paradigm, the organization claimed. Critics, though, blasted that idea. In its new report, dubbed “The Work Ahead: Machines, Skills, and...
