  • Tucker Carlson Hijacks Christian Right Confab in Iowa

    Going into the Family Leadership Summit in Des Moines on Friday, the big story was whether Donald Trump’s contemptuous decision to skip the presumably obligatory cattle call for Republican presidential candidates before a large and influential crowd of conservative evangelicals would damage his candidacy. Trump aside, however, the big question was whether one of the dark horse candidates stalking the former president and Florida governor Ron DeSantis would have a breakout moment at the day-long event. Former vice president Mike Pence, whose intimate ties with the Christian Right go back decades, and Senator Tim Scott, who has been delivering a...
  • Researchers claim CPR mannequins aren't diverse enough - and rely too heavily on lean, white men

    11/21/2022 10:12:09 AM PST · by algore · 186 replies
    Mannequins used to practice life-saving CPR aren't diverse enough, doctors have claimed. Researchers want to ditch the reliance on default 'lean white male' models. Doing so will help overcome 'bias' among bystanders and help improve the survival of other groups, they say. This, the team claim, would be done by 'changing the perception of sudden cardiac death' — meaning people recognise it doesn't just happen to white men. Academics from Canada and Argentina found fewer than 10 per cent of mannequins used to promote CPR on social media represented black or Asian people. None were of pregnant women and barely...
  • House Lawmakers Propose 1,000 Percent Tax on AR-15s

    The measure would place exemptions on recreational weapons used for hunting as well as ammunition. The law would not retroactively apply to tens of millions of AR-15s that are estimated to be circulating around the United States. In an attempt to define what would be taxed, the bill says it would apply to “semiautomatic assault weapon[s],” which are semiautomatic rifles that have the capacity to use a magazine that isn’t a fixed magazine, a pistol grip, a forward grip, and a folding, telescoping, or detachable stock. Other items that fall under that definition include a semiautomatic rifle with a barrel...

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—After admitting on national television that she had not anticipated the intensity and length of America's inflation pains, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen was seen in her office poring over a copy of Economics for Dummies. The secretary, hired for her brilliance in possessing a checklist of acceptable physical characteristics, has been praised for her renewed desire to understand how moneys work. "Huh, I was way off when I said inflation risks were small and manageable," Yellen was overheard muttering to herself while using a crayon to circle the book's key principles about how money does not grow on trees....

    The Washington Post — a newspaper named Washington — published an editorial calling for a name change at George Washington University.You can’t make this sh*t up.The op-ed, written by a senior currently attending George Washington University, is 800 or so words of the usual-usual, shockingly ignorant moral preening we’ve come to expect from the Woke McCarthyites. So let me sum it up: This university is racist, and George Washington was racist, and while I didn’t find this offensive enough to pass up attending school here, harrumph, harrumph, harrumph, half-truth, half-truth, half-truth, I’m so virtuous, I’m so virtuous, I’m so virtuous…This...

    Those trusting the Fed to be visibly weak, corrupt and incompetent forever might be in for an unwelcome surprise.When even the crash test dummies are nervous, it pays to pay attention. Being in a mild crash isn't too bad if all the protective devices inflate as intended. But in a horrific crash where nothing goes as planned, it's like speeding in a ready-to-explode Pinto and being side-swiped by a semi on Dead Man's Curve. The stock market is in the Pinto, and the smell of gasoline is so strong it's overpowering the smell of old Cheetos and stale beer. The...
  • Seattle professor claims physics is racist, white supremacy rampant in classrooms

    A Seattle Pacific University professor claims that white supremacy permeates introductory physics classes. It’s research that is meant to explain why so few black people are in the field of study. But it reads like a parody. Dr. Amy Robertson (“a chronically ill and disabled, physics-Ph.D.-holding, thin wealthy white woman”) and equity consultant Rev. W. Tali Hairston (“an African American male and lifelong learner, researcher, and educator of equity-inclusive frameworks”) use critical race theory to claim that racism and white supremacy are endemic to college- and graduate-level physics courses. The study’s authors acknowledge that their research is instructed by their...

    VIDEOI have never seen a person so enamored of one word as Ottawa Police Chief Peter Sloly is of the word "RESOURCES." He repeats it over and over and over again as if it is some sort of mantra excuse for not being able to do a damn thing about the trucker protests in his city. As a result, the people most angry about him are not the protestors but the Ottawa liberals who want him fired for doing nothing while he keeps reciting the "resources" mantra.Here is a compilation of the many many times Sloly invokes his magic word...

    New York City’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene passed a resolution Monday declaring racism “a public health crisis.” The resolution was passed by an 11-member board of health, made up of appointees who were largely chosen by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, according to the New York Post. The resolution asks the Health Department to expand its anti-racism work and requires it to create priorities for a racially just recovery from COVID-19,” the department of health’s website said. “It also includes other requirements to address this public health crisis in the short and long term. The Director...

    I'm starting a thread so that we can collect specific examples of Mayors, County Executives, and Governors exceeding their authority or otherwise improperly curtailing your freedom. This whole thing was a test, and many governors failed. Mayors certainly did. This thread is to pile up specific examples of these excesses so that the weight of them perhaps can be brought to bear on some of these . . . statesmen and women. I'll start: In my city the mayor decided to ban construction activity, and yet the city road crews were out in force getting the roads build (under city...

    Come friendly bombs and fall on Hollywood, it isn’t fit for doing good. Another year, another dreadful Oscars, another round of moral lectures from the beautiful people. It’s all so tiresome. The only reason most people pay attention to these irritating award ceremonies is precisely so that they can be irritated. So there was a vegan theme at this year’s Academy Awards. So the show had no host. So Brad Pitt is angry about impeachment. So someone said ‘workers of the world unite’. So Joaquin Phoenix is mad (in all senses) about what mankind is doing to the animal kingdom....

    VIDEO The DUmmies are determined to ensure the re-election of President Trump by a landslide by continuing to alienate even more of the electorate. In this case they are making that attempt by mocking Ash Wednesday. And while mocking "The Deplorables" for being narrow-minded cultists, they continue their deep faith in goddess Gaia and Astrology as we shall see.

Goodman plus watching what Hillary has been up to lately plus reading the DUmmie thread presented here, I am now convinced that she is in the running, but in a very stealthful manner.

    VIDEO The DUmmies are mostly very DOWN on Bernie Sanders following his announcement today that he is running in 2020 for president. Although DUmmieland is a far left site, they purged almost all Bernie supporters from there in 2016 due to the fact that their leader, Skinner, was deep into Clinton Cash.
