  • Company produces methane-capturing face mask for cows

    Device is meant to help with global warming. A sustainable agriculture company has manufactured a device they say will help curb global warming by neutralizing methane exhaled by cows. Zelp, a company based in London, says that its device can help contribute to a "strong reduction in the global warming potential of methane." The mask, which is strapped to the snouts of cows, "neutralises methane exhaled in real time," the company claims. The device also has digital monitoring technologies such as geolocation and emission monitoring capabilities. Activists have warned that cows are significant contributors to global warming due to their...
  • Straight Fire: Collins Blasts 'False, Sexist, Insulting' Attacks from Dem Group Run By Ex-Republicans

    A recent attack, launched by a disreputable leftist attack group run by former Republican operatives, targeted Maine Senator Susan Collins. It labeled her a "Trump stooge," called her a "fraud" of an independent, and asserted that she's "controlled" by the president and Mitch McConnell. This organization supposedly began as a "Never Trump" project, but has morphed into a "Never Republican" outfit aiming to help ensure total Democratic control of government. In no way, shape, or form is it functionally "conservative," as many in the media insist on labeling it. It's a Democratic group, promoting Democratic candidates, in order to install...

    Hmmm, I wonder what could possibly be going on in Oregon with respect to this spike in COVID cases? And Washington? Don’t you dare suggest that the spread is due to peaceful protests and riots. They’re all wearing masks. Just look at that masked up Wall of Mothers Once you brush all the superfluous details away what strikes me most about the  current spate of riots/not riots occurring in our cities is the fact that our police are behaving just like Europe’s gendarmes have been for years – almost decades -  now. Which is to say they’re just there to...

    A resident of Forest, Va. has assembled a list of over 1,200 snitches who reported their neighbors for potential violations of the state’s COVID-19 lockdown. Isaiah Knight compiled the list after filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, which gave him the name of people who participated in the Soviet-style snitching campaign against their fellow man. He received information from the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) that 1,293 people made complaints to authorities. “The short answer is I wanted to see how many people would rat out Anne Frank. And it’s essentially that,” Knight said...“What you see on this...

    Flubros! The definition of a flubro is someone who recognizes that this Coronavirus is about the same as a bad flu, and, therefore, realizes this hype is all a bunch of trash to feed the government, health care, and media industrial complexes. In this thread, which is open to flubros only, we can discuss Corona related topics without fear of being bombarded by hyperbolic speech from the prepper segment of the Freeper community. The “oh-noes” segment of the Freeper community is also, of course, not permitted to post here.

    The Defense Department is no longer moving forward with three border barrier projects in California and Arizona, according to a court filing Monday. The move is a reversal of an earlier Pentagon authorization for about 20 miles of fencing, lighting and other border infrastructure that would have used $2.5 billion in funds redirected from a counter-drug fund. That authorization, announced Aug. 27, was based on what was then determined to be "lower-than-expected contract costs." But the Defense Department revealed in the Monday filing that the department would not be able to cover the costs of the project. The Defense Department...

    Being simultaneously comical and tragic, perhaps nothing reflects our descent into Idiocracy more than millennials who’ll insist their misspellings of words are correct. Just yesterday I read an eyebrow-raising story about this that was quite timely, as I’d experienced millennial spelling moronity just the day prior. My case involved a leftist who emailed me with some deep, substantive criticism: He said I was “insane,” “nuttier than a fruitcake” and “f*****g” nuts.” I responded to him. While I generally don’t play the spelling Nazi, leftists’ characteristic superciliousness inspired me to mention to him, kindly, that he’d written “you’re” as “your” three...

    If the government were to require that only men or only women had to pay a tax of several hundred dollars a year solely because of their sex, that would be an unconstitutional denial of equal protection under the 14th Amendment. Yet that is exactly the effect of the so-called tampon tax.

    Boris Johnson’s bid to become prime minister has been thrown into chaos after police were called to blazing row between the MP and his girlfriend. Neighbours heard ‘plate-smashing’ and a ‘screaming row’ between Mr Johnson and Carrie Symonds. She is said to have yelled at him ‘get off me, get out’ at the home they share together in south London. On Saturday Mr Johnson, 55, is gearing up to go head to head with his leadership challenger Jeremy Hunt in the first run-off hustings. However, questions about his complicated private life are set to dominate the battle for Downing Street....

    Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez should get her own reality TV show. It would be a comedy, of course, with cameras following her around to record a typical day in the life of the face of the Democratic party. Those cameras would record some of the most illogical, incoherent, idiotic, and just plain weird statements from a woman whose worldview has been shaped by socialism. That she's an ignoramus with a primary school understanding of most issues is a bonus. Yesterday, Ocasio-Cortez "grilled" the chairman of Wells Fargo, Timothy Sloan, asking him a series of bizarre questions about "caging migrant children" and...

    Statue vandals seem to have mistaken WWII hero for Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, museum officials say Vandals in North Carolina may be in need of a history lesson after having set fire to a statue honoring a World War II hero they apparently mistook for a Confederate general, officials said earlier this week. A white marble monument of U.S. Army Maj. Gen. William C. Lee, who commanded the 101st Airborne Division's "Screaming Eagles" during World War II, was doused with flammable liquid and set on fire last week, museum officials said. The statue bears black scorch marks running up...

    DUNN, NC (WNCN/CNN) - Authorities said vandals wanted to express their opposition to Confederate monuments by targeting a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. The problem is, they went after the wrong statue. Gen. William C. Lee was the commanding officer of the 101st Airborne Division during World War II, and his statue stands in front of his namesake museum, the William C. Lee Airborne Museum. Authorities say someone recently tried to set the statue on fire. “This is a hometown grown boy here that turned out to be an international hero in World War II, but to come...

However, the substance (full pdf below) is so ridiculous, there are many people now wondering if she and her allies were set-up by political opponents to make themselves look like fools. The goal is to have all Americans eating sustainable algae cakes and sitting around campfires, barefoot, picking parasites off each other…. or something.

Even small things like avocado toast! As a proud New Yorker, it’s a little hard to admit this, but California always figures things out a bit before the rest of us.” “Right now it’s hard to look at Kamala Harris and not get that same sense,” Feinberg said. FCTRY boasts that the 6-inch Harris figures are “a perfect size for all uses” whether “you want to keep her on your desk...
