    48:34 in Length. Well worth the listen (do you hear, simpletons of the mobile phone "news" rewrite propaganda summary-- you mindless clowns?). "A Leftist/Socialist... anti Communist, one of her best read books is "The Meaning of Treason"an account of several spectacular trials in the UK in re: the Cambridge 5. " Which is the acceptable Communist as presented by the Bernibot and AOC ultraleft and the incompetent "normal" democrats. Is it the Chinese or the oligarch Russians (the distraction faction of the idiots still working the clinton hoax line)? Which Communism is just fine vs. our Constitutional Republic. "The takeaway...

    MassDOT Secretary Stephanie Pollack has been appointed to the new Biden-Harris administration as the new Deputy Administrator of the Federal Highway Administration. Pollack has led MassDOT since 2015, at the beginning of Governor Charlie Baker’s first term. Before she joined the state government, Pollack had been Associate Director for Research at the Kitty and Michael Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy at Northeastern University, and an attorney and director of the Conservation Law Foundation (CLF). As a CLF attorney in the 1990s, Pollack helped negotiate a package of significant transit improvements that the state promised to build as mitigation...

    The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is moving forward with its controversial plan to consider charging tolls — possibly $1 or $2 — on as many as 10 major bridges in the state. PennDOT Secretary Yassmin Gramian told a Senate panel on Monday the list of potential bridge candidates to be tolled will be announced in mid-February. The bridges will be spread across the state and will only involve ones located on interstates. Once the list is finalized, the department is obligated to conduct public outreach for each of the bridge candidates. Special emphasis is being placed on identifying the economic...
  • The Real Cost Of President Biden's Radical Transgender Activism

    PNW ^ | 1/25/21 | Dr. Michael Brown
    Of all the things that incoming President Joe Biden could do on his first day in office, why was one of them signing a radical executive order promoting transgender activism? It's obviously because, in his view, "transgender equality" is the great civil rights issue of our day. Except that it isn't. Instead, the president's executive action declares war on the rights of others, especially females. Allow me to explain. On January 25, 2020, Biden tweeted, "Let's be clear: Transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time. There is no room for compromise when it comes to basic human...

    The ‘Tiger King’ star said he was “too innocent and too GAY” to receive a pardon from TrumpJoe Exotic is still holding out for a presidential pardon from new US president Joe Biden. Exotic, the big cat owner who became an overnight celebrity upon the release of Netflix’s Tiger King last year, had been hoping for a pardon from former president Donald Trump, going as far as to have a limousine parked outside his prison in anticipation of his release. In new emails sent to his team by Exotic that have been obtained by TMZ, the TV star has expressed...

    Explanation: Have you ever seen the Southern Cross? This famous four-star icon is best seen from Earth's Southern Hemisphere. The featured image was taken last month in Chile and captures the Southern Cross just to the left of erupting Villarrica, one of the most active volcanos in our Solar System. Connecting the reddest Southern Cross star Gacrux through the brightest star Acrux points near the most southern location in the sky: the South Celestial Pole (SCP), around which all southern stars appear to spin as the Earth turns. In modern times, no bright star resides near the SCP, unlike in...

    Gloria Romanorum ^ | January 25, 2021 | Florentius
    January 25 is the feast day of the ancient martyrs, Juventius and Maximus (sometimes called Juventinus and Maximinus). These two were soldiers during the time of Julian the Apostate and suffered martyrdom at his hands, most likely in AD 363. You may remember from similar posts on this blog that although Julian had a deep animosity toward Christianity, he refrained from enacting a wholesale persecution in the style of Diocletian because he had seen that such methods failed to suppress the Faith and indeed, seemed to enhance its appeal. As a result, Julian had taken a more subtle approach to...

    UPI ^ | JAN. 25, 2021 | Struan Stevenson
    As the country with the second-largest gas and fourth-largest oil reserves in the world, Iran is a crumbling ruin, the legacy of 42 years of Islamic fundamentalism. The theocratic dictatorship ruling Iran has been a disaster for its 80 million mainly young citizens, the majority of whom have known no other government. Young Iranians are predominantly secular and non-religious, but they are tech-savvy and envious of the freedoms they recognize in the West. Yet they are chained to the diktats of a fascist, clerical regime, led by the supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who believes he is God's representative on...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will send the article of impeachment against Donald Trump to the Senate at about 7 p.m. Monday, where a “full trial” will take place. This, according to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). ... The Hill indicates only a handful of Republicans seem likely to go along with a vote to convict Trump, short of what they would need for success. They write, “Only five or six Republican senators at the most seem likely to vote for impeachment, far fewer than the number needed.” Meanwhile, CNN is reporting that several GOP senators have expressed that Senate...

    A man riding the chairlift at a Romanian skiing resort captured video of the tense moment a fellow skier was chased by a bear. David Creta posted a video to YouTube showing the bear chasing a skier on a slope at the Predeal ski resort on Saturday. Chairlift riders alerted the skier to the pursuit, and the skier threw his backpack on the ground, which succeeded in distracting the bear for long enough to allow the man to escape. Police spokesman Ion Zaharia said the skier did the right thing by distracting the bear. He said three emergency calls came...

    A pair of Idaho men broke a Guinness World Record when one used both hands to throw popcorn that the other caught in his mouth. David Rush, who has broken more than 150 Guinness records to promote STEM education, teamed up with neighbor Jonathan Hannon to break the record for most popcorn thrown and then caught with the mouth in one minute (team of two). Hannon, who is ambidextrous, threw popcorn with both hands and Rush caught the flying snacks in his mouth. The men managed 54 catches in one minute, beating the previous record of 37, which was set...

    Remember when Barack Hussein Obama said on TV he’d be okay with the idea of a shadow government system existing in America? “People would ask me: knowing what you know now do you wish you had a third term? And I used to say, If I could make an arrangement where I had a stand-in, a front-man or front-woman, and they had an ear piece in and I was just in my basement, in my sweats, looking through the stuff, that I could sorta deliver the lines, but somebody else was doing all the talking and ceremony, I would be...

    "The View" co-host Meghan McCain said Monday that liberals like Katie Couric and others who had called for the "deprogramming" of some Donald Trump supporters could "go to hell." McCain said she thought there would be a stronger desire for unity from Democrats in the aftermath of President Biden's election win, but she said the language from liberals had been more concerned with dehumanizing Trump supporters, which she called dangerous for Democrats and the country. Couric and several others, including McCain's "The View" colleague Sunny Hostin, have referred to Trump backers as "brainwashed" or in need of "deprogramming" in the...

    Far from being a helpless minority, Senate Republicans are in a powerful position to leverage their consent for key priorities from their voters.In a Senate that is now split 50-50, newly minted Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his counterpart, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, are negotiating a power-sharing agreement. Although Vice President Kamala Harris wields the tie-breaking vote for Democrats on the Senate floor, the two parties must negotiate how they will manage the day-to-day operations of the institution. What McConnell agrees to in the upcoming days will tell us a lot about how the Senate GOP plans to comport itself...
