    PLYMOUTH COLONY — Celebration descended into disaster today when what began as a meal of thanksgiving for bountiful blessings erupted into anger due to an attendee wearing a hat emblazoned with the words "Make America Great Someday." As citizens of the Plymouth Colony gathered together with their invited guests from the venerable Wampanoag tribe of natives, spirits were high and joy abounded. Things soon took a turn for the worse, however, with the arrival of colonist Donald Hartford Tumpington, long viewed as a politically outspoken firebrand. "This is to be the greatest and most beautiful among nations," said Tumpington loudly,...

    We know that honest citizens defend themselves with firearms thousands of times a day. These defenders also save strangers. What is more unusual is that sometimes those heroic events are reported in the news. Here is how Kelcey Willis saved a five-year-old boy last week in Warner Robins, Georgia. What do you do on the weekend? Kelcey Willis, the defender in this tale, was taking his car to Walmart to change the oil that Sunday. It was about 2 pm when Willis and a friend talked to the technician at the auto center. They were distracted by a child’s scream...
  • The Twitter office responsible for complying with European misinformation laws has been shut down after Elon Musk's layoffs

    Twitter has closed down its office in Brussels, Belgium, according to the Financial Times. The office was a small one, with under 10 staff, but was vital because of its relationship with the European Union, which last week introduced new laws for social media companies. Twitter's two digital policy chiefs in Europe — Julia Mozer and Dario La Nasa — left the company last week, five people familiar with the situation told the FT. It was unclear if they resigned or were laid-off, but they left the company after Musk issued an ultimatum to all staff, telling them to work...

  • Elon Musk says Twitter more 'Japan-centric' than U.S.-centric: report

    PALO ALTO, U.S. -- Twitter's new owner Elon Musk has reportedly said the social media platform should look to replicate its success in Japan and consider basing engineering teams in India and Indonesia as well. "It may seem as though Twitter is U.S.-centric, but if anything it's Japan-centric," Musk said during a company meeting Monday, online tech magazine The Verge reported. "There are roughly the same number of daily active users in Japan as there are in the U.S., despite the fact that Japan has one-third of the population of the U.S.," the Tesla chief and SpaceX founder was quoted...

  • Russian lawmakers ban 'LGBT propaganda' among adults

    Russia's lower house of parliament passed a discriminatory law that bans Russians from promoting "LGBT propaganda" in the third reading on Thursday. The move by Russia's State Duma, the lower house of parliament, expands a 2013 law that banned people from discussing gay relationships and issues with children to apply to people of all ages. The bill needs to be reviewed by Russia's upper house of parliament and signed by President Vladimir Putin before becoming law. Russia to fine people if they promote LGBT relationships Russian lawmakers agreed all individuals could be fined up to 400,000 rubles ($6,600, €6,346) and...

    Moscow (AFP) – Russian lawmakers unanimously approved a bill banning all forms of LGBTQ "propaganda" in a final reading on Thursday, as Moscow presses ahead with its conservative drive at home while its troops fight in Ukraine. The legislation passed by the lower house of parliament, the Duma, bars all mention of what authorities deem "gay propaganda" in the media, cinema, books and advertisement. It also prohibits "the propaganda of paedophilia and sex change". If also approved by the upper house of parliament and signed into law by President Vladimir Putin, rights groups say it effectively bans all public promotion...

    It must become crystal clear to the Left that what goes around, comes around. As Republicans prepare to take charge of the U.S. House of Representatives, it is important to recognize the sea change that has recently occurred in America. Things are fundamentally different now than they were just a little while ago and are unlikely to change back in the near future, if ever. In international relations there are three ways countries interact with each other. Some are friendly, sharing common interests and goals. Examples include the United Kingdom and United States, the vaunted "special relationship." Others have little...

    Employees are leaving a vast Foxconn iPhone factory in central China over working conditions and Covid restrictions, relieved to be taking pay-offs home after angry protests at the Taiwanese tech giant's plant. The workers are leaving the plant in Zhengzhou in the wake of bloody clashes with police, in which more than a dozen protesters were hurt, furious about Foxconn's failure to deliver promised bonuses, employees told AFP. "The contract suddenly changed and everyone was unhappy, in addition the previous incidents at Foxconn made everyone lose trust, so the protests happened," one female worker who wished to remain anonymous told...

    A Texas woman, 23, was arrested after she allegedly set her boyfriend's house on fire during a jealous rage after discovering another woman had answered their Facetime call - the mystery female turned out to be the boyfriend's relative. Senaida Soto was taken into custody on Monday and faces felony charges for burglary and arson. Her bond was set at $165,000. No one was hurt in the blaze, but the fire caused more than $50,000 in property damage. The bizarre ordeal happened on Sunday when Soto became enraged that her beau may have been two-timing her, broke into his San...
  • China’s gold stockpiling is dollar warning sign

    11/24/2022 4:32:24 AM PST · by FarCenter · 21 replies
    TOKYO — One of the worst-kept secrets in global central banking is the extent to which Chinese officials are swapping dollars for gold. Governor Yi Gang’s team at the People’s Bank of China isn’t admitting as much. The PBOC doesn’t have to, though, given the clear policy trajectory Chinese leader Xi Jinping has pursued in recent years: internationalizing of the yuan as the top rival to the dollar. Xi’s position hasn’t changed so much as other governments are catching on that trust is waning in the global reserve currency and an alternative to the dollar is badly needed. Particularly as...

    Do a mental flyover of the COVID pandemic, and you’ll see these dots I mention. In mid-March 2020, we got the gift of a 5-alarm virus, one that nobody had noticed during its first four to six months of spread. The terror of COVID began when it was suddenly hyped as dire and deadly. From nothing, it came to dominate all the news. Nobody was more quoted than Doctors Fauci and Birx. The race to spread gasoline on the fire had begun. But there was always a method to the madness. Remember the shortage of ventilators? The governors who housed...

  • The renewable energy transition is failing

    11/24/2022 4:21:47 AM PST · by FarCenter · 35 replies
    Despite all the renewable-energy investments and installations, actual global greenhouse gas emissions keep increasing. That’s largely due to economic growth: While renewable energy supplies have expanded in recent years, world energy usage has ballooned even more – with the difference being supplied by fossil fuels. The more the world economy grows, the harder it is for additions of renewable energy to turn the tide by actually replacing energy from fossil fuels, rather than just adding to it. The notion of voluntarily reining in economic growth in order to minimize climate change and make it easier to replace fossil fuels is...

    Elon Musk buying Twitter has brought with it a lot of noise from many, but we’re starting to get to the bottom of why there was so much triggering. Allow Musk to explain the reason(s): The more I learn, the worse it gets. The world should know the truth of what has been happening at Twitter. Transparency will earn the trust of the people. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 23, 2022 Yes! This is what we can’t wait to find out. This. Is.
