    It’s an annual ritual. One that the media enables because it enjoys clickbait and lies. And the doomsday clock has lots of both.Every year, Rachel Bronson, President and CEO of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, who has a degree in political science from Columbia, gets up in front of a fake clock to announce that the world is doomed.And now it’s time for the Doomsday Clock to be set for 90 seconds to midnight. Or whatever gets media attention.If you don’t believe Rachel, maybe you’ll listen to Jerry Brown, former California governor and executive chair of the Bulletin of...

    What used to be arguably America’s most famous candy became infamous over the course of the last few years as it descended into woke culture as many corporations did, and just like these other corporations, it paid the price."Get woke, Go broke," as the saying goes. M&M’s marketing team decided to take the beloved characters and begin changing up how they act and behave. While Red and Yellow were left alone, Green was defeminized so that she wasn’t so obviously a woman, which was offensive to the hard left for some reason. Moreover, they began adding other colors for the...

    CNN medical analyst and Washington Post columnist Dr. Leana Wen admitted in a column, Friday, that the medical community is "overcounting" the amount of "COVID deaths and hospitalizations." Wen, who writes an occasional Washington Post column providing her observations on the pandemic, masking and other COVID-related subjects, cited sources claiming that most "patients diagnosed with COVID are actually in the hospital for some other illness." The article is titled, "We are overcounting COVID deaths and hospitalizations. That’s a problem." Wen’s observations prompted readers on Twitter to complain, stating that it's "two and a half years late."

  • Has Russia betrayed the 1994 nuke deal guaranteeing Ukrainian sovereignty?

    01/05/2023 3:43:00 PM PST · by USA-FRANCE · 40 replies
    According to the Western-sponsored Budapest Memorandum, Kiev gave up its nuclear weapons in return for the Russian pledge of respect for Ukrainian territorial integrity. Russia’s full-fledged invasion of Ukraine has brought to mind a crucial post-Cold War agreement over Ukraine’s nuclear weapons capability – which resulted in Kiev giving up its nuclear arsenal in light of the US and UK's assurances that Moscow would respect the former Soviet republic’s sovereignty. Ukraine possessed the world’s third-largest nuclear arsenal, which consisted of at least 1,900 strategic nuclear warheads. The country had inherited that infrastructure from the former communist Soviet republic. If Ukraine...
  • Axelrod: Biden Should Avoid ‘Triumphalism’ — ‘This Wasn’t’ Really ‘an Affirmation of Policies’

    Breitbart ^ | 11/09/2022 | IAN HANCHETT
    During CNN’s election coverage on Wednesday, CNN Senior Political Commentator and former Obama adviser David Axelrod said that the message of the results in the 2022 midterm elections “wasn’t an affirmation of policies so much” as a rebuke of extremism and that he would advise President Joe Biden against being triumphant in addressing the results. Axelrod said, “Look, what I would advise would be to understand what the message was yesterday. I think it was a repudiation of extremism in all its forms. And I think he should note that and understand this wasn’t an affirmation of policies so much...

    Cooking chicken in NyQuil cold medicine doesn't sound very appetizing — and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration wants you to know that it's definitely not safe, either. The agency has issued a warning about videos that have surfaced on TikTok challenging people to cook chicken in NyQuil, which contains acetaminophen, dextromethorphan and doxylamine, or similar over-the-counter cough and cold medications, according to the FDA. "Boiling a medication can make it much more concentrated and change its properties in other ways," the warning said. "Even if you don't eat the chicken, inhaling the medication's vapors while cooking could cause high...
  • Bombshell Accusation: Hospitals Specifically Targeted the Unvaxxed for Deadly Forced Remdesivir and Respirator Protocols

    [H/T ymani cricket]Attorneys have filed three lawsuits against hospitals for forcing the use of Remdesivir and respirators to treat people for Covid-19, oftentimes against the wishes of the patients and their families. They claim that doctors, hospitals, and even states were given ample incentive by the federal government to use the ineffective and dangerous protocols instead of treatments that were more effective but less profitable.It was a blockbuster interview all the way through, but there was one comment in particular that should chill Americans to the bone. As the attorneys claim in their lawsuits, the unvaxxed were primarily targeted.

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said on Friday’s “Morning Joe” that “Jesus never once talked about abortion” while discussing Roe v. Wade being overturned. Scarborough said, “And let me just say, as a Southern Baptist, I grew up reading the Bible, maybe a backsliding Baptist, but I still know the Bible. Jesus never once talked about abortion, never once, and it was happening back in ancient times. It was happening during his time. Never once mentioned it.”
  • Anderson Cooper says in deposition that CNN's 'rigorous' fact-checking process means he NEVER questions reporting that comes to him 'pre-vetted'

    Anderson Cooper has testified that he will accept pre-agreed answers during interviews about legally-thorny topics, in a deposition that lifts the lid on CNN's journalistic processes. The 55-year-old journalist, one of CNN's biggest stars, bristled when the lawyer deposing him described him as a television 'host,' and insisted that he was fully involved in reporting and not just the face of the news. He said he never attended morning editorial meetings, and, asked about who controlled his social media, replied: 'I don't look at social media that much.' On the advice of his lawyer, Cooper refused to answer questions about...

    Quora: Truth About Russia ^ | 08/08/2022 | Quintin Van Zyl
    This is a really good question and has piqued my interest since it speaks directly to my doctoral research, rendering me somewhat qualified to answer this question from a behavioural scientific perspective. To understand the psychological outcome of this war, we need to understand what it is that Putin wants and then determine his current mindset with regards to the attainment of those desires or preferences. And here we run into problems, because in spite of the copious amount of ink spilt on the topic, nobody knows exactly - perhaps not even Putin himself - what he wants. The signalling...
  • Is Biden Purposely Raising Gas Prices to Fuel His Green Agenda?

    The national gas average hit a new record of $5.00 a gallon this week, and it doesn’t look like prices are going to fall anytime soon. Americans are frustrated with President Joe Biden’s lies about the economy, and many believe he is at fault for their wallets shrinking. A new poll conducted by the Trafalgar Group found that over 53 percent of people “believe the Biden administration is intentionally letting gas prices rise to make Americans use less fossil fuels.” While 56 percent of voters agreed that the high fuel prices is Biden’s fault. Gas prices have nearly doubled since...

    OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — The Washington State Patrol says drivers are increasingly refusing to stop for troopers - and other law enforcement agencies also say this is becoming a common occurrence. “Something’s changed. People are not stopping right now,” said Sgt. Darren Wright, a WSP spokesperson with 31 years on the job. Steve Strachan and others in law enforcement connect the increase in failures-to-yield to passage last year of House Bill 1054, a sweeping police tactics law that, among other things, barred high-speed pursuits except in very limited circumstances. The law was part of a package of police reforms majority...

    According to an anonymous whistleblower letter posted by Air Force Times, Pentagon policy makers are promoting “diversity and inclusion” at the expense of high, uncompromised standards in an elite Special Operations Forces command. The letter focuses an unnamed female captain who began training with the Special Tactics Training Squadron (STTS) in 2018, hoping to become the first woman to join a combat controller team (CCT).The female captain dropped out of physically demanding combat controller course exercises several times, but unlike male trainees with similar difficulties, Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) officials kept extending special concessions to keep her in...
  • Party Girl Mayor London Breed, Who Defunded San Fran Police, Invokes Focus-Group-Tested Expletive to Pretend She’s Tough on Crime

    San Francisco Mayor London Breed is know for a few things. She loves the welfare state, though she’d prefer if the homeless from around the nation would stop coming to collect from her city. She likes partying while telling her constituents they need to mask up and stay home. She really loves clubbing and would never let her city’s crime problems get between her and the dance floor. But one of the things she’s known best for is her quick and decisive decision last summer to defund the police. She hates the police. Unfortunately for the people of San Francisco,...
  • Chicago's county defies Supreme Court(Illinois), preserves unconstitutional gun and ammo ordinance

    The Illinois county that's home to Chicago is going to make legal gun owners pay for the crimes of illegal gun owners, regardless of what any court might say. Cook County slapped a tax on guns in 2012 and added ammunition to the tax in 2015, according to Fox News. The tax was $25 per gun, with centerfire ammunition taxed at 5 cents per round and rimfire ammo at one cent per round, according to Fox. An Oct. 21 Illinois Supreme Court ruling, written by Justice Mary Jane Theis, found the tax was unconstitutional and a violation of the Second...

    The mass arrival of Afghan invaders, many in need of medical care, wreaked havoc on Northern Virginia’s hospital system — prompting a regional emergency response group to assume oversight after one hospital became overwhelmed with patients and federal officials lost track of where some Afghans were hospitalized. Area leaders have been asking the Biden administration to pay for the mounting cost of keeping track of the hospitalized evacuees and for giving them rides back to the Dulles Expo Center — where they have been temporarily housed.

    A majority of Americans believe racism against black people is “widespread” in the United States, a Gallup survey released Friday found. The survey showed 64 percent of U.S. adults expressing the belief that racism against black people is widespread across the nation, representing a 13 percent uptick from the 51 percent who said the same in 2009 during the first year of Barack Obama’s presidency. That number has continued to increase in the years following, reaching 60 percent in 2015 and 61 percent in 2016. Eighty-four percent of non-Hispanic black adults say racism against black people is widespread in the...
