    New major COVID-19 variants will emerge if people don’t get vaccinated against the coronavirus, experts recently told CNBC. “Until the whole world is vaccinated, not just rich Western countries, I think we are going to remain in danger of new variants coming along and some of those could be more virulent than omicron,” Dr. Andrew Freedman, an academic in infectious diseases at Cardiff University Medical School, told CNBC. Freedman said viruses “tend to become milder” with time, but that “isn’t always the case.” “It may well be with future variants that they are even more contagious, they may be milder,...
  • NIH Director: Lab Theory Didn’t Get Attention It Maybe Should Have, But It Was on Mind of Me and Fauci

    On Thursday’s broadcast of “PBS NewsHour,” NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins stated that the lab leak theory on the origin of COVID-19 “didn’t get nearly as much attention perhaps as it should have. I will tell you, it was always on my mind. I know it was on Tony Fauci’s mind.” Collins said, “I think it was a confusing time back then [early 2020], Judy. First, let me say, I do think we need to get answers here. An investigation is very much needed.” He added that back then, there was the theory that the virus was the result of...
  • America's Largest Defense Contractor Sends Execs to Check Their Straight, White, Male Privilege

    Defense contractor Lockheed Martin tossed its executives to the woke wolves recently for training to help them check their white, male, and heterosexual privilege according to internal documents posted to Twitter Wednesday afternoon. Writer and Manhattan Institute fellow Christopher Rufo posted screenshots of the documents that he says were part of a "three-day white male reeducation camp" that Lockheed Martin executives attended via Zoom. The training program was hosted by White Men As Full Diversity Partners, one of many woke consulting firms that have popped up in a new and insufferable cottage industry as companies bend to the will of...

    In January of 2017, when the political controversy over Donald Trump’s perplexing win over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 national election was at its peak, my professor began his political psychology course by asking the lecture hall the following: “How many of you wish Hillary had won the election?” The question was voluntary, yet nearly every hand in the room shot up. “Okay, and how many of you supported Trump winning the election?” The room was quiet as not a single hand was raised, followed by a few chuckles. “Next, how many of you feel that liberals are safe walking...

    It is fascinating to watch the Trump Phenomenon! The old guard, New World Order folks and those who have become successful the way things are expect things to remain the way they are. They expect to be in charge of what you love, hate, distrust and depend upon. They have been able to control your passion, interest and actions. We have all become influenced by what they call mean, intolerant, right and wrong. But no more will we follow losing belief systems. Black Americans were never bothered by a Confederate flag, until we were told to be. No one, I...
  • SNL reinstates suspended writer who made comment about Barron Trump

    WSB-TV ^ | August 11, 2017 | Carlin Becker,
    The “Saturday Night Live” writer who was suspended “indefinitely” after tweeting an insensitive message about President Trump’s youngest son, Barron Trump, has apparently been reinstated by the show. Katie Rich, 34, was credited as a writer for Thursday night’s episode of “Weekend Update: Summer Edition” after she was suspended from “SNL” in January for saying that 11-year-old Barron “will be this country’s first homeschool shooter.” Her tweet led to widespread condemnation, and she subsequently deleted it before tweeting out an apology. “I sincerely apologize for the insensitive tweet,” she wrote at the time. “I deeply regret my actions & offensive...
  • Trump team looks at rapid exit from the Paris climate “treaty”

    One of the dangers of planning or striking big deals as President of the United States is what happens when the next guy comes along. Earlier we looked at the collapse of the TPP, but that’s not the only global scheme from the Obama administration on the chopping block. The President moved unilaterally back in September to speak for several hundred millions of Americans by signing us onto the Paris climate treaty without having Congress ever weigh in on the subject. By the time Donald Trump is sworn in as the nation’s 45th President you can expect a plan to...
  • Now RICO turned against climate-change activists

    It was a year ago when a long list of scientists wrote to the Obama administration urging the federal government to use RICO, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, against global-warming skeptics. They said in a letter addressed to President Obama, Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Office of Science and Technology Policy Director John Holdren they “appreciate that you are making aggressive and imaginative use of the limited tools available to you in the face of a recalcitrant Congress.” “One additional tool – recently proposed by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse – is a RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act)...

    In a nightmare scenario, a well-known physician was brutally attacked inside his BMW after leaving a seaside restaurant. Now, after surviving the bloody beating, he offers an exclusive account of the night he was nearly killed. Venice Beach was warm and festive when Dr. Bruce Lee left the Townhouse bar and restaurant and walked across Windward Avenue toward his car. It was around 10:30 p.m. on a weekday night, but crowds of people strolled along the broad avenue under bright lights. Lee, 61, absorbed the mood, relaxed and happy, as he slid behind the wheel of his green BMW 750....
  • Networks on Trump: A ‘Dark Speech’ From a ‘Vengeful’ ‘Demagogue’

    The three networks on Thursday night immediately derided Donald Trump’s “dark speech” as one coming from a “vengeful” “demagogue.” On NBC, Tom Brokaw allowed that “some” will see Trump as on a “white horse who will lead them to some kind of sanctuary and then pull the drawbridge up.” But he sneered, “Others looking in are going to see someone they will only think as a demagogue of some kind.” Chuck Todd labeled, “I thought it was an extraordinarily dark speech.” Republican operative Nicolle Wallace lamented, “We are now represented as a party by a man who believes in protectionism,...

    "HB2 is hurting North Carolina's commerce" blared the headline for a Twitter "Moment" this evening which all but celebrated the left-wing corporate and political bullying of the Tar Heel State for its law overriding a Charlotte "bathroom bill" ordinance. Tweets marking the left-wing boycott read like a who's who of boutique liberal media outlets from VICE to Vanity Fair to The Hollywood Reporter, and, of course, The New York Times.

    Bernie Sanders got his start in political movement due to his older brother, Larry Sanders, who headed the Young Democrats at Brooklyn College. If you thought Bernie was a crazy radical, then you haven't met Larry, who moved on to the UK where he runs for parliament as a member of the Green Party. The Green Party is about as terrible as a political party can possibly get. Its only virtue is that unlike its German counterpart, it didn't come out for legalizing pedophilia. (It left that to Labourites like Harriet Harman.)

    If a neo-conservative is a liberal who's been mugged, what do you call a European who goes to welcome Muslim immigrants and gets savagely robbed? Besides a fool? I guess I will have to leave that up to the Europeans, who will first have to agree on a language for the term. Esperanto? Whatever term they agree on, will Dutch journalist Maaike Engels and photographer Teun Voeten accept the mantle? Time will tell. Jacob Bojesson reports at the Daily Caller that they were: ... attacked at knife point while obtaining footage for their documentary "Calais: Welcome to "The Jungle." The...
  • The Fallacy of Socialism and the Fools Who Fall For It

    To have a self-acclaimed socialist in the Senate of a nation that spent two generations fighting against it is a surprise, but to have one running to be the leader of the free world is a real wake up call as to how far removed this last generation has drifted from the truth of the abject failure of socialism and what an unworkable system it really is. Socialism is a philosophy, a utopian ideal that has only ever worked in small groups of like-minded people, religious groups, communes or such, that have made the decision to devote themselves, their affluence...
  • Progressive Faculty and Administrators Deserve All of the Blame for the Recent Unrest on Campus

    The recent wave of student protests is aimed at liberal professors and administrators. Current student anger eerily fits the pattern of most left-wing unrest, from the cycles of the French Revolution to the campus riots of the 1960s. First, protests gradually grow more extreme. Venom is directed at fellow leftists who are deemed insufficiently radical. In revolutionary France, wild-eyed Jacobins soon guillotined reformist Girondins, who were considered passé. During the Russian Revolution, extremist Bolsheviks marginalized liberal Mensheviks. In the 1960s, many members of the SDS and Black Panthers hated liberals who disapproved of their violence. A group called the Black...

    Hacktivist group Anonymous has begun publishing the personal details of members of the Ku Klux Klan as its campaign of cyberwar against the white supremacist group escalates. Anonymous, the amorphous online activist collective, last week promised to reveal the identity of 1,000 members of the KKK after coming into possession of the private information through a compromised Twitter account associated with the group.

    Another day, another horrible mass shooting. This one was in the small town of Roseburg, Oregon, on the Umpqua Community College campus. More than two dozen people were reportedly hit with gunfire. While victims are being rushed to the hospital, many right-wing pundits and politicians are no doubt readying their talking points to explain why the 264th mass shooting of the year does not mean the United States should tighten up access to deadly firearms.
