    Though Dominion serves 28 states, until the 2020 election it had been largely unknown outside the election community. It is now widely targeted in conservative circles, seen by millions of people as one of the main villains in a fictional tale in which Democrats nationwide conspired to steal votes from Trump, the lawsuit said.

    Functioning ‘mechanical gears’ discovered in nature for the first time To the best of our knowledge, the mechanical gear (equally sized teeth cut into two rotating surfaces to lock them together as they turn) was invented by Greek mechanics in Alexandria around 300 B.C.E. Functioning ‘mechanical gears’ discovered in nature for the first time Since then, the simple concept has become a foundation of modern technology, allowing a wide range of machinery and vehicles, including automobiles and bicycles. However, As it turns out, a three-millimeter-long hopping insect known as Issus coleopterous beat us to this invention. Malcolm Burrows and Gregory...

    Dominion Voting Systems said on Thursday it had asked Facebook and other social media platforms to preserve posts and data from several conservative-leaning networks including Fox News as it pursues defamation claims that it rigged the 2020 presidential election. Lawyers for Dominion’s parent company sent letters to Facebook, YouTube, Parler and Twitter stating that the posts and data from Fox, Newsmax, One America News Network (OANN), former President Donald Trump and others are relevant to Dominion’s pending and forthcoming claims. Last month, Dominion filed defamation lawsuits against Trump’s lawyer Rudolph Giuliani and his former lawyer Sidney Powell. The company has...

    A voting technology company is suing Fox News, three of its top hosts and two former lawyers for former President Donald Trump — Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell — for $2.7 billion, charging that the defendants conspired to spread false claims that the company helped “steal” the U.S. presidential election. The 285-page complaint filed Thursday in New York state court by Florida-based Smartmatic USA is one of the largest libel suits ever undertaken. On Jan. 25, a rival election-technology company — Dominion Voting Systems, which was also ensnared in Trump’s baseless effort to overturn the election — sued Guiliani and...

    Dominion Voting Systems announced Friday it sued pro-Trump lawyer Sidney Powell, claiming she damaged the company’s reputation in her election lawsuits where she claimed votes in several swing-states were manipulated in favor of President-elect Joseph R. Biden. “Lies were told about government election officials, elections workers, and Dominion Voting Systems. Those lies have consequences. They have served to diminish the credibility of U.S. elections. They have subjected officials and Dominion employees to harassment and death threats. And they have severely damaged the reputation of our company,” said John Poulos, CEO of Dominion. “Today is the first step to restore our...

    President Donald Trump's campaign legal team sent a memo to dozens of staffers Saturday instructing them to preserve all documents related to Dominion Voting Systems and Sidney Powell in anticipation of potential litigation by the company against the pro-Trump attorney. The memo, viewed by CNN, references a letter Dominion sent to Powell this week demanding she publicly retract her accusations and instructs campaign staff not to alter, destroy or discard records that could be relevant. A serious internal divide has formed within Trump's campaign following the election with tensions at their highest between the campaign's general counsel, Matt Morgan, who...

    We have a lot of love for Star Trek: Discovery's Captain Gabriel Lorca. He's mysterious, stylish and brave enough to keep a Tribble on his desk – what's not to like? Unfortunately, that's a sentiment that Captain James T Kirk himself doesn't appear to agree with, as William Shatner has unceremoniously blocked Jason Isaacs on Twitter. Ouch.

Paleoanthropologists have been wiping egg of their faces for years now, after continual findings reinforce the fact that Neanderthals were just as smart and capable as we are (29 April 2019), not dumb caveman brutes like evolutionists had portrayed for a century.

    Last week I posted on the humiliation special counsel Robert Mueller’s crack team suffered in federal court in Virginia. In February, Mueller indicted three Russian companies and thirteen individual Russians…who may or may not exist…for various crimes in connection with the 2016 campaign. The indictment looked to be bullsh** from the beginning as it makes running an anonymous Facebook page during an election a federal crime. More to the point, the indictment was a public affairs gimmick. Mueller had been under criticism for his indictments having zero to do with investigating Russian collusion. They were either existing financial crimes that...

The following pages of this website are the photographic documentation of various unusual phenomena my wife, Sue, and I have found in southern Oklahoma and north Texas. What you see is what we saw and with the exception of some graphic arrows in one of the photos, no manipulation of the visual facts has been done. The original seven pages of photos began back on September 10, 2000. My wife publishes a community newspaper called TGIF, the weekend bandit. Most simply refer to it as the Bandit. It is distributed in six counties in Oklahoma...

    Thomas Quine, Flickr // CC BY 2.0 When something unexpected happens during a sewer system project, the news is not usually pleasant. But when workers installing pipes in Seymour, Indiana stopped due to an unforeseen occurrence, it was because they had inadvertently dug up a few pieces of history: mastodon bones.According to the Louisville Courier Journal, workers fiddling with pipes running through a vacant, privately owned farm in Jackson County happened across the animal bones during their excavation of the property. The fossils—part of a jaw, a partial tusk, two leg bones, a vertebrae, a joint, some teeth, and...

    A selection of World War 2 guns that stayed in the ground for tens of years and now being dug out by Russian enthusiasts. The search for the old guns became very popular in Russia lately, so popular that a law was passed that abolished such kind of searches in Russian forests. Now if you going to be caught with a metal detector you can face charges. Still people go on this treasure hunt as the stock of the metal laying down in the ground since WW2 is immense.

    In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue, bringing to the New World a bounty of wonder: coffee, horses, turnips, grapes, wine. But Columbus and his fellow explorers, in addition to importing crops and animals we now take for granted, were also the Typhoid Marys of their time. The New World before Columbus: no typhoid, no flu, no smallpox, no measles. The New World after Columbus: epidemics of death.
