  • Mouthwash May Help to Neutralise Coronavirus, Experiment With Human Cells Suggests

    10/21/2020 8:57:24 AM PDT · by Red Badger · 24 replies ^ | 21 OCTOBER 2020 | PETER DOCKRILL
    A range of common household items – including mouthwash, nasal rinses, and even diluted baby shampoo – have been found to inactivate a form of human coronavirus in new research, highlighting another potential avenue to reduce transmission rates amid the ongoing COVID–19 pandemic. Before we go any further, it's worth pointing out that nobody is suggesting mouthwash is some kind of silver bullet that can protect you from a virus that has killed over 1 million people so far, as that's not what this research is demonstrating, nor recommending. For starters, nobody gargled oral rinses as part of these new...

    California Republicans refuse to hand over information about who used their unofficial ballot drop boxes. Now, state Democratic leaders are taking them to court. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra on Tuesday filed a petition in the Sacramento Superior Court requesting the court order the CA GOP to comply with investigative interrogatories, or questions posed to the party about the use of unofficial ballot drop boxes. Becerra is asking the court to force Republicans to provide the name, address and birth date of all individuals that deposited a vote by mail ballot in any of Republicans non-official drop boxes, as well...
  • Why did they nominate Hunter Biden's pop?

    10/20/2020 10:55:33 AM PDT · by Red Badger · 49 replies ^ | Tuesday, October 20, 2020 | Don Surber
    There are no secrets in Washington. Democrats knew in July 2019 that Ukraine finally was investigating the company that bribed Hunter Biden. Democrats knew that Rudy Giuliani was investigating. As a federal prosecutor under Reagan, Giuliani succeeded in shutting down the Five Families in New York -- mafiosos who had plundered the city for decades. Surely Democrats knew that President Donald John Trump was not playing around. And now he has delivered the Mother of All October Surprises. His opponent's 50-year-old son collected bribes for his father, snorted cocaine, and abused underage girls provided by Red China. Democrats have known...

    YouTube ^ | Oct 4, 2020 | Bedros Keuilian 156K subscribers After researching all of the facts from this video it only made sense to vote for Donald Trump. Seriously put all petty issues aside. Put all the fake twisted facts you hear on social media and do the research yourself. The two things that mean the most to me are the protection of our constitutional rights and equality for all.

    Imagine parallel parking a 15-passenger van into just two to three parking spaces surrounded by two-story boulders. On October 20, a University of Arizona-led NASA mission 16 years in the making will attempt the astronomical equivalent more than 200 million miles (320 million kilometres) away. A NASA mission called OSIRIS-REx will soon attempt to touch the surface of an asteroid and collect loose rubble. OSIRIS-REx is the United States' first asteroid sample return mission, aiming to collect and carry a pristine, unaltered sample from an asteroid back to Earth for scientific study. The spacecraft will attempt to touch the surface...

    I was recently contacted pursuant to my perspective on the damnable heterodoxy known as Critical Race Theory (CRT). For whatever reason(s) the person seeking my input failed to reconnect with me to hear my thoughts regarding same. That said, I've been planning to share my feelings regarding CRT and there's no time like the present. Let me first say that I am an unapologetic, uncompromising, in your face when the situation calls for it, born-again Christian, ordained minister who has been called to a ministry that has kept me on the front lines of the political theater. I stand...

    On October 6th, Steve Perry got a text from his recording engineer that read, Oh man, Eddie Van Halen. I cant believe it. The former Journey frontman had no idea what he was talking about. I dont watch the news anymore, he says. And so I picked up the phone and said, Whats going on?' When he heard the tragic news that the guitarist died after a long battle with cancer, Perrys mind instantly went back to 1978 when Van Halen opened for Journey for eight weeks on the Infinity tour. He phoned up Rolling Stone to tell stories from...

    Operation Fantasia was the brainchild of OSS psychological warfare strategist Ed Salinger... The foundation for the proposal, Salinger wrote in a memo outlining his idea, rests upon the fact that the modern Japanese is subject to superstitions, beliefs in evil spirits and unnatural manifestations which can be provoked and stimulated. Salingers plan: Catch live foxes in China and Australia, spray-paint them with glowing paint, and release them throughout Japanese villages. This scheme presented a number of logistical hurdles. First, what kind of paint should be used? The United States Radium Corporation provided an answer in the form of its glow-in-the-dark...

    Townhall, American Greatness, Daily Wire, Breitbart, Sebastian Gorka, Dinesh D'Souza and virtually everyone else who has read "The Woke Supremacy: An Anti-Socialist Manifesto" agree with Nick Adams, author of "Trump and Churchill" that it is "One of the most important books of our time." Written to be the "Common Sense" of THIS "revolutionary war," The Woke Supremacy explains who the Woke are, where they came from, what they want, what they're willing to do to get it and, most frighteningly, what will likely befall mankind if they were to somehow win.

    The image, stretching for 40 yards on a hillside in Peru, shows a creature with pointy ears, orb-like eyes and a long striped tail. It appears to be a cat lounging, as cats often do. Archaeologists stumbled across the faded etching while remodeling a section of a UNESCO heritage site known as the Nazca Lines, Perus Ministry of Culture announced last week.

    Historys grand plan, if it has one, doesnt usually allow for repetition. The kaleidoscope of the past brings up endless new iterations of victory and defeat, triumph and agony, and allows us only a glimpse into the uncertainty of the future and the ambiguity of the past. New world powers are coming to the fore, and the post-war world order first the Cold War, then the Pax Americana is disappearing. As the influence of NATO, which for many decades gave Europeans a sense of safety through its ability to deter and defend, begins to wane, the promise of...
