    Instead of earning money through their accustomed nonstop trade, they inflated their currency and were forced to melt down the city’s inherited gold and silver fixtures.The once canny and shrewd Byzantines grew smug and naïve. Childlessness became common. Most now preferred to live outside of what had become a half-empty, often dirty, and poorly maintained city.Meanwhile they underestimated the growing power of the Ottomans who systematically pruned away their empire. By the mid-15th century Islamic armies were ready to exploit fatal Byzantine weaknesses.
  • Are you guilty of child abuse? Probably.

    If you support a school system that won’t teach children to read, do math, learn the simplest events in history, or understand the most ordinary facts about the world we live in, you’re guilty of child abuse. Maybe not sexual child abuse but certainly academic child abuse, education child abuse, cultural and intellectual child abuse, cognitive and psychological child abuse. You're guilty. Look at the evidence. It's the size of Texas. To flee from your guilt, you might try to deny the undeniable, and believe the unbelievable, for example, that the Education Establishment cares about improving education. That's funny because...

    In hearings at the Senate Judiciary Committee, U.S. Magistrate Judge S. Kato Crews, a Biden nominee for a federal district court position, was asked by Sen. John Kennedy (R-La) "how would you analyze a Brady motion." His response was "in my four and a half years on the bench, I don't believe I've had the occasion to address a Brady motion." Kennedy then asked "do you know what a Brady motion is?" Crews replied "it's not coming to mind at the moment." Kennedy told Crews that "it comes from the case of Brady v. Maryland." This prompted Crews to falsely...

    Newly-elected Miami-Dade Commissioner Sabine Covo, who Florida Democrats have praised as being not only the future of their political party but as the first win for them in taking back the state, does not know the Pledge of Allegiance. During a March 9 County Commission meeting, Commissioner Covo was asked to recite the Pledge. "Commissioner Covo, could you lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance, please," asked someone within the Commission "You don't know it? Ok," responded the same official to Covo, who could not be heard to answer the first question about reciting the Pledge.

    Amid controversies around the COVID-19 vaccine and growing distrust of public health authorities, more than four in ten Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, and a third of parents, now say they oppose requiring children in public schools to receive some childhood vaccines, up since 2019, a new KFF COVID-19 Vaccine Monitor survey finds. Overall, nearly three in ten adults (28%) nationally now say that parents should be able to decide not to vaccinate their children for measles, mumps, and rubella rather than those vaccinations being required to attend public schools, up from 16% in a 2019 Pew Research Center poll conducted...

  • Apache historian questions official narratives: ‘How is it possible that 120 soldiers cut off the feet of 8,000 of our brave Indigenous people?’

    El Pais ^ | 26/11/22 | Vicente G. Olaya
    Alfonso Borrego is the great-grandson of Geronimo, a prominent leader and medicine man from the Bedonkohe band of the Apache people. Geronimo was known for his fearlessness – he resisted both the Mexican and American militaries when they attempted to remove his people from their tribal lands in the late-1800s. Borrego, 66, has spent years researching what happened to his people and his great-grandfather. While speaking with EL PAÍS, he discusses the various conflicting narratives that have been pushed over the past century. Some say that the Spanish drove the Indigenous to near-extinction in the United States, while others suggest...

    Outgoing Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that she will do whatever it takes, including running for president, to stop Donald Trump from becoming president again. Anchor Chuck Todd said, “Donald Trump ends up the nominee in 2024. You’ve said you won’t be a Republican anymore, so it implies you think the party can be saved.” Cheney said, “I think the party has to come back from where we are right now, which is a dangerous and toxic place, or the party will splinter, and there will be a new conservative party that rises if...
  • China tells state banks to prepare for a massive dollar dump and yuan buying spree as Beijing's prior interventions have failed to stem its currency's worst year since 1994

    The People's Bank of China has told major state-run banks to prepare to shed dollar holdings while snapping up offshore yuan, which has continued to fall despite prior interventions, sources told Reuters. The scale of this latest effort to prop up the yuan will be big and could provide a floor to the Chinese currency, according to the report. The amount of dollars to be sold hasn't been decided yet, but Reuters said it will primarily involve the state banks' currency reserves. Their offshore branches, including those based in Hong Kong, New York and London, were ordered to review offshore...

  • Batteries An Explanation

    Prior to my career selling 'High Tech Printed Circuit Boards' (PCB's), I started in sales with a company in Long Island, NY, packaging Uninterrupted Power Supplies utilizing Nickel Cadmium Storage Batteries. Somehow, I still receive tech bulletins and publications from the industry. And recently received this and thought it may be interesting to others as well. Very Informative. Do Enjoy! The writer.. What is a battery?' I think Tesla said it best when they called it an Energy Storage System. That's important. They do not make electricity – they store electricity produced elsewhere, primarily by coal, uranium, natural gas-powered plants,...
  • The Spectacle of Woke Feminists An army of privileged unhappy neurotic women - with an endless amount of spare time - try to bring meaning to their boring lives.

    Between the red-cloaked handmaids, topless women in nuns' habits, dead baby dolls, bloody pants, and half-naked green-breasted obese women, the protests are more like a nightmare of apocalyptic, zombie, nuns-ploitation films with scenes from Carrie, It's Alive, and The Walking Dead. Most of the privileged, bored women go home and share photos of their day dabbling in politics on social media. However, for some of the younger women, the protests are a type of gateway drug to the next level of activism. They join more militant feminist groups in which protest involves vandalism, arson and more. Jane’s Revenge is an...

    Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) said on this week’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show” that Gov. Kay Ivey (R-AL) was pushing “plain racist ignorance, in your face.” In a campaign ad, Ivey said, “With Joe Biden shipping illegal immigrants to the states, we’re going to have to learn Spanish. My message to Biden, ‘No way, Jose.’ That’s why I sent National Guard troops to protect the southern border, and that’s why we banned sanctuary cities in Alabama. The left can try to cancel me. I don’t care. But here in Alabama, we’re going to enforce the law.”
