  • I'm John Fetterman: This is why I want Pennsylvania's vote in the midterm election

    Whether it's rising crime or rising costs, we need leaders who actually understand the problems we’re going through here in Pennsylvania, and who have the experience and the ideas to do something about it. I know we need to tackle crime because I live in a community with a serious crime issue. I know that costs are too high because I see it with my own eyes when I’m at Costco. I get these issues because I’ve lived these issues.
  • If Tolkien’s work is the Bible, then Amazon Prime’s ‘Rings of Power’ is a litany of sins

    Rings of Power is glorified fan fiction with a multi-million dollar budget.The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is commercialism in all its glory—and gore. It is a billion-dollar visual feast built from the breadcrumbs left behind by J.R.R. Tolkien. Amazon Prime Video’s new offering—described as Jeff Bezos’ vanity project—promises to slake our thirst for high fantasy. But it takes creative liberties that make purists cringe. In 2017, Amazon bought the television rights to The Lord of the Rings (LOTR) trilogy, The Hobbit and the appendices for $250 million, and then poured another $465 million into the first...
  • ‘The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power’ Is Not Pushing A Woke Agenda

    Forbes ^ | Sep 1, 2022 | Erik Kain
    One of the more tiresome complaints I’ve heard online about Amazon’s Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power show is that it’s pushing a woke agenda—cramming said agenda down our collective throats in an attempt to push some leftist identity politics on the masses. This is a silly critique for the most part, driven by idle speculation and a fandom that has been utterly overwhelmed by culture wars and endless politics. There used to be a time, not so long ago, when we could enjoy movies and TV shows and video games without a constant barrage of politically charged...

    Allegations of Pentagon-funded biolaboratories in Ukraine have long been dismissed by Washington as Russian disinformation. But as more information comes to light including documents revealing Pentagons plan to use Ukraine biolabs to attack Russia, it becomes increasingly complicated to keep denying the charges.Moscow alleged on Wednesday that records and other proof from US-funded labs in Ukraine indicate Kiev planned to employ drones to deliver pathogens against the Donbass as well as Russia itself.The Defense Ministry reportedly claims to have discovered particular US personnel engaged in bioweapons development in the East European country. There was no tangible proof to substantiate the...

    The Beatles attempted to make a big-screen adaption of "Lord of The Rings" in 1968, but the band was denied rights to the fantasy books by J.R.R. Tolkien, according to filmmaker Peter Jackson. Jackson — who is best known for his sprawling trilogy based on Tolkien's "Lord of The Rings" series — is currently on the press run for his latest work "The Beatles: Get Back," a docuseries crafted from footage of the band recording their last album, "Let It Be," when he told the BBC that he had discovered the fab four had been keen on adapting Tolkien.

    Right now there are four Mexican gents fixing my carport roof. I am amazed by the work ethic shown by these four men, they don’t chit chat, they don’t stand idle and smoke, they just work. My roof is going to get done today, weeks ahead of schedule by four men who barely speak any English. The jobs were there and they saw an opportunity and I hope they get paid well for their labors. For the record I’m 60 with health issues and had to hire this job out, I’m not lazy, just grateful there are still hard working...

    [H/T ExTexasRedhead and Jane Long]In January 2019, the WHO defined the growing number of vaccination critics as one of the top ten threats to global health, and since the unprecedented Corona vaccination fiasco, the number of vaccination refusers has truly multiplied.Meanwhile, resistance is forming even within the orthodox medical establishment. But the masterminds of the WHO continue to insist on an unrealistic vaccination coverage rate of at least 70 percent.In this article, Jan Walter describes, with extensive source citations, which techniques are possible to still vaccinate the population, when people are becoming increasingly critical of vaccinations. This is only fueled...

    London — A study conducted in the U.K. offers some of the first large-scale, real-world data on how well vaccination protects people against catching a "breakthrough" COVID-19 infection, and how well it protects breakthrough patients from becoming seriously ill. The results are encouraging. The peer-reviewed study published Wednesday in The Lancet medical journal will help policy makers and epidemiologists fill in a significant gap in the understanding of the true efficacy of three of the major vaccines being used worldwide.... The data, gathered from December 8, 2020, through July 4, 2021, show that of more than 1.2 million adults who...

On Instagram Live he told his followers that after several days of feeling feverish and exhausted, he tested positive. "We immediately threw the kitchen sink at it," he said in the video. "Monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, Z-Pak, prednisone." He claimed that after three days, he felt rejuvenated.

No exceptions or you are considered a Troll. You must believe what they believe exactly or you should hit the highway.

    LGBTQIAXYZ (and some Marxists I’m sure) held a symposium to discuss transgender and critical race applied philosophies to Lord of the Rings. (Some believe this is a quasi-marketing campaign for the Amazon Lord of the Rings series coming out next year which looks to upend Tolkien’s Christian worldview and woke-ize it with lots of sex and strong wahmen. Just Some Guy rips them a new one here easily destroying one of their arguments.

Men, Elves and Dwarves have their own sequestered production units for the different Free Peoples [this intriguing bit rather suggests the narrative might be constructed across wide time jumps or told from pockets of different historical viewpoints, perhaps even an anthology approach rotating characters from the various Free Peoples all reacting to the same thing, but over what timelines we still do not know.

    I do not expect any of my fellow “liberal/progressive” Democrats to share my concern here, but because I believe that it will be very difficult for the Democrats to retain the pesidency in 2024 and to retain control of Congress in 2022 (because of Republican state legislatures wanting to make it hard for many Democrats to vote), I want whoever the Republicans nominate for president in 2024 to be a high-quality person such as Carly Fiorina (who voted for Biden-Harris in 2020). I like it that she is widely known to be a very sensitive, empathetic and compassionate person on...
