  • Floating Wind Madness in Maine

    Watts Up with that ^ | June 18, 2024, | David Wojick
    The Government of Maine has really big plans for floating wind, a floating net zero fantasy, in fact. Since floating wind power is the next big green thing, it is worth taking a close look at this ruinous vision. Floating wind is a fad, not an established technology. It has yet to be built at utility scale or tested in a hurricane. The world’s biggest grid-connected system is a tiny 50 MW and just came online off Scotland. The cost of floating wind is necessarily much greater than fixed wind. A fixed wind tower sits on a simple monopile, while...
  • Hunter Biden Case for Appeal: Gun Law is Unconstitutional

    Hunter Biden’s conviction on federal gun charges Tuesday ignited a feverish debate, including among conservatives, over the constitutionality of the law he was found guilty of violating. Thanks to a 2022 Supreme Court ruling, courts are taking a new look at the federal government’s main gun control law that bars felons, illegal immigrants, dishonorably discharged veterans, fugitives and unlawful drug users, among others, from possessing a firearm.

  • 30 of the Best Fantasy Novels of All Time

    The Standard (U.K.) ^ | SASKIA KEMSLEY
    Not all those who wander are lostJust like the otherworldly maps which often grace the inner covers of these wondrous books, the realm of fantasy novels is surprisingly wide-ranging, with numerous sub and hybrid genres existing within. From full-blown fantasy featuring witches, dragons, magic and mayhem, to dystopian takes that offer an almost satirical commentary on contemporary reality – the choices are endless and rather daunting, making it difficult to know where to start. An enduring genre nonetheless, it’s particularly fascinating that so much of our adoration for fantasy novels comes from our experience of them as children. When reread...
  • The Democrats’ Plan to Take Down Biden, Install Michelle Obama

    02/15/2024 7:05:12 AM PST · by Sam77 · 57 replies ^ | 14 February 2024 | Michael Taylor
    For the past year, rumors have been swirling that Michelle Obama will throw her hat in the ring at the “last minute,” after the deep state successfully completes its controlled demolition of Joe Biden ahead of the 2024 election. Rumors are rumors. But as the saying goes, there is no smoke without fire. It would be naive to assume the Democrats haven’t already deployed a carefully crafted plan to use Joe Biden as their fall guy to make way for Michelle Obama.

    On the back of COVID-related production delays and massive Hollywood strikes, the next 12 months will be a strange mix of long-awaited content and out-of-the-blue oddities. More than half of last year’s list has yet to appear, so there is likely to be a lot of interesting film and TV to come. I’m ignoring most of the big franchise stuff as it has recently proved to be utterly disappointing. Instead, we have lots of strange, creative and original work to look forward to including an apocalypse musical, an android exploring human emotions, and a story about a clone who lives...

    Governor Chris Sununu (R-NH) said Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Your World” that former Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC) is going to be the Republican Party’s 2024 presidential nominee Sununu said, “It’s the connection she has with voters. When she’s in New Hampshire, and she’s doing the town halls and all that, she’s not just telling you where she is. She does that. But she’s allowing folks to ask questions. She’s earning trust. And that’s why her numbers were soaring before I even got involved because folks are galvanizing around that. And then you have the international experience, which none of...

    An Olympic gold medalist long rumoured to be Vladimir Putin’s mistress hasn’t been seen for weeks. Alina Kabaeva, 40, hasn’t made a public appearance since October 22 during a visit to her elite gymnastics school in Sochi, a Russian city on the Black Sea. Just days later a sketchy Telegram blog said the Russian president had died of a cardiac arrest, a claim the Kremlin furiously denied as ‘fake news’ at best. Only a week before, the General SVR account alleged that if the leader were to die, a body double would likely rule in his stead. Kabaeva was last...

The Gateway Pundit is one of the only sources reporting on the Biden-sponsored disaster, that has cost taxpayers $114 billion and approximately 400,000 innocent Ukrainian lives.“The Kiev regime, despite...

    Democrats' persecution plans are backfiring big time... Last Updated on August 29, 2023A seismic shift is being felt in American politics as support for 45th President Trump among black voters explodes amidst the deep state’s lawfare efforts to throw him in prison and kick him off of the ballot in 2024’s Presidential Election. As black support for Trump increases, black support for Joe Biden is going down in flames, with just 61% of black voters now saying they support the Democrat – a far cry from the 91% support that was reported in 2020.According to a Fox News poll of...

    A Japanese man who spent more than $20,000 to become a dog has finally taken his first walk and immediately made some canine friends. Known only as Toco, the man spent two million Yen (A$22,000) on a hyperrealistic border collie costume to fulfil his lifelong dream of “becoming an animal”. In recent updates shared with his almost 30,000 YouTube subscribers, Toco was seen playing in his backyard on all fours and performing tricks in exchange for treats. But now he has ventured into public for the first time to reveal his new look. In a pair of surreal videos posted...

    Russia's defence minister said on Tuesday his forces had thwarted the first three days of a Ukrainian counter-offensive, alleging that they had killed or wounded more than 3,700 Ukrainian soldiers. Unusually, Sergei Shoigu read a statement himself rather than leaving it to the ministry's regular spokesman. "In the past three days, the Ukrainian regime launched a long-promised offensive in different sectors of the front," Shoigu said. He said Ukraine had suffered 3,715 casualties over three days, as well as losing 52 tanks and 207 armoured vehicles.
  • The Fine Lines That Separate Faith from Fantasy and from Presumption

    New American Prophet ^ | May 30, 2023 | Dr. Michael Brown
    What is the difference between faith in the invisible God and fantasy? Or the difference between faith and presumption? The lines that separate faith from fantasy and presumption can be fine, but they are definite, and they are clear. Failure to recognize those lines can be the difference between life and death, between truth and error, between a solid, fruit-bearing walk with the Lord and spiritual deception.
