  • FDA Panel’s Endorsement of COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters Makes Sense, Experts Say

    The Epoch Times ^ | 10-19-21 | Zachary Steiber
    The recent advisory panel endorsement of boosters of the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines was a good decision, experts told The Epoch Times. “The recommendations are following the evidence that we have and I’m pretty comfortable with what they’re moving forward with. It makes sense,” said Dr. Michael Saag, professor of medicine and infectious diseases at the University of Alabama Birmingham. “For the most part, I think their recommendations are reasonable,” added Dr. Tom Russo, professor and chief of infectious disease at the University at Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. “The boosters are going to...
  • Ashkenazi Jews rank smartest in world: Studies show descendants of Jews from Medieval Germany, throughout Europe have IQ 20% higher than global average

    Is it possible for your ancestry, religious affiliation, or nationality to determine your intellect? According to a study performed by Cambridge University called, "From Chance to Choice: Genetic and Justice," Ashkenazi Jews have a median IQ of 117. That’s 10 points higher than the “accepted” IQ of their biggest competition, Northeast Asia, and 20% higher than the global average. The Ashkenazim make up approximately 80% of all Jews with descendants from Medieval Germany and throughout Europe. The other 20% is made up of Sephardic Jews. I bet you’re frantically searching ancestry.com right now. Genetic research from the Albert Einstein College...
  • Smackdown: JunkScience.com Founder Dismantles WashPost Blaming Climate Change for Hurricane Ida

    NewsBusters ^ | 8/31/2021 | Joseph Vazquez
    JunkScience.com Founder Steve Milloy ripped an absurd Washington Post argument that Hurricane Ida — which caused power outages to more than a million homes — is a spawn of climate change. The leftist Jeff Bezos-owned newspaper capitalized on the catastrophic hurricane to push insane eco-extremist talking points: “How climate change helped make Hurricane Ida one of Louisiana’s worst.” The story’s first paragraph peddled straight-up fear porn: “From its birth, the storm was destined to become a monster.” It continued, calling the storm “the poster child for a climate change-driven disaster.” Milloy lambasted the propaganda in comments to MRC Business: “A...

    JunkScience.com founder Steve Milloy ripped President Joe Biden’s Environmental Protection Agency for filling a core committee with compromised eco-partisans. The junk science buster is vowing to sue the Biden administration as a result. Milloy published a letter to EPA Administrator Michael Regan headlined “Milloy to EPA Administrator: Pick a new [Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC)] or see you in court.” CASAC is supposed to provide “independent advice to the EPA Administrator on the technical bases for EPA's National Ambient Air Quality Standards.” Milloy reminded Regan: “The law requires that CASAC be constituted as a fair and balanced independent panel....
  • Shockingly Strong Correlation Between ‘Delta Variant’ Rise and Increased Vaccinations: Could the "Delta Variant" be growing as a result of the vaccine push?

    NOQ Report ^ | 06/20/2021 | JD Rucker
    Statistical analysis of the “Delta Variant” of Covid-19 compared to vaccinations in India, the United Kingdom, and the United States points to a narrative that runs contrary to what mainstream media and governments have been promoting. A closer look at the numbers reveals the Delta Variant may actually be strengthening as a result of increased vaccinations.First, here’s an important note. The last year has made me a “prudent conspiracy theorist.” My former self would often disregard nearly all conspiracy theories because I found them to be wanting. But things have clearly changed for me, millions of Americans, and the world...

    For 14 months, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended draconian restrictions on Americans' daily lives to combat COVID-19. The CDC made light of the hardships and economic losses the restrictions inflicted. Call the agency the "Centers for Doubletalk and Confusion." Now, evidence is emerging that the restrictions were based on flimsy science or sheer guesswork. Last week, MIT researchers showed that the CDC's six-foot social distancing rule has no basis in science. If you're indoors, your risk is the same whether an infected person is three feet away from you, or six feet away, or even 60...
  • You Can’t Accept Homosexuality and Then Reject Transgenderism

    The Gatekeepers ^ | 2-25-2021 | Denise McAllister
    One of the most obvious challenges to objective truth today is transgender compliance—agreeing that an individual can change his sex from male to female (or vice versa), and be referenced as such, on the mere basis of feelings and psychology. It’s no wonder conservatives are pushing back against this illogical and anti-scientific agenda—a dogma that projects man’s subjective truth over nature and reality. Unfortunately, however, too many conservatives are on the losing end of the argument because they have already sacrificed key premises regarding sexuality. Put simply, those who have said “yes” to homosexuality as a true and legitimate sexual...
  • Psychological ‘signature’ for the extremist mind uncovered (barf alert)

    02/23/2021 7:20:09 AM PST · by MtnClimber · 25 replies
    Researchers have mapped an underlying “psychological signature” for people who are predisposed to holding extreme social, political and religious attitudes and supporting violence in the name of ideology. A new study suggests that a particular mix of personality traits and types of unconscious cognition – the ways our brain takes in basic information – is a strong predictor for extremist views across a range of beliefs, including nationalism and religious fervour. These mental characteristics include poorer working memory and slower “perceptual strategies” – the unconscious processing of changing stimuli, such as shape and colour – as well as tendencies towards...

We don't want in the beginning ... most of the people who are getting it are otherwise, well, middle-class white people.""You really want to get it to the people who are really the most vulnerable ... you don't want to have a situation where people who really are in need of it, because of where they...

    President-elect Joe Biden has tapped Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine to be his assistant secretary of health, leaving her poised to become the first openly transgender federal official to be confirmed by the U.S. Senate. “Dr. Rachel Levine will bring the steady leadership and essential expertise we need to get people through this pandemic — no matter their zip code, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability — and meet the public health needs of our country in this critical moment and beyond," Biden said in a statement.

    EXCLUSIVE – Joe Biden's pick to run the Justice Department's enormously powerful Civil Rights Division is a woman called Kristen Clarke. Clarke says her job is simple: End hate. But like so many in her world, Clarke is actually an enthusiastic purveyor of what she claims to fight. A new investigation by "Tucker Carlson Tonight" has uncovered shocking statements that Clarke made while attending Harvard as an undergraduate. In 1994, Clarke wrote a letter to The Harvard Crimson in her capacity as the president of the Black Students Association to explain her views on race science. "Please use the following...

    Coronavirus can significantly impact brain function, causing mental decline equivalent to the brain aging 10 years, according to an alarming new study. A study of more than 84,000 people in the UK found that the virus left even those deemed recovered with “chronic cognitive consequences” that it compared to dropping 8.5 IQ points. “People who had recovered, including those no longer reporting symptoms, exhibited significant cognitive deficits,” the study published on MedRxiv said.

    Pope Hypes Alarmism on Melting Glaciers Scientific journals debunk pontiff's climate apocalypticism VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) - Pope Francis ratcheted up his climate change alarmism to apocalyptic levels at his Wednesday public audience, warning that "two great glaciers in Antarctica near the Amundsen Sea" are "about to fall." Pope Francis greeting youths at his Wednesday audience "It will be terrible because the sea level will rise and this will bring many, many difficulties and cause so much harm," the pontiff predicted. "And why?" Francis asked. "Because of global warming, not caring for the environment, not caring for the common home," he categorically declared, attributing...

    Surely, Timothy Litzenburg is a wealthy man. As one of the lead plaintiffs' attorneys suing Monsanto over the alleged (but factually incorrect) claim that its product Roundup (glyphosate) causes cancer, he likely has had several nice paydays in recent years as the company has been slammed with one jackpot verdict after another. Lawsuits have cost its parent company, Bayer, billions of dollars. The trouble with money, however, is that no matter how much you have, you never really have enough. You always want more. Litzenburg wanted more, too, and he knew just how to do it. After seeing how easy...

    On June 20, 2020, Washington Governor Jay Inslee held a press conference claiming that Yakima was being overwhelmed by the corona virus. Given that in the past, Inslee claimed 2 million people would be killed in the US by the corona virus – and that hospitals in Washington state would be overwhelmed by the corona virus, it is amazing to me that anyone still believes anything this guy says. For those with short memories,...

    Skepticism is at the heart of the scientific method. Question everything. Test everything. Scientific knowledge is established by evidence, not authority. The method is sound, but the execution may be imperfect. That's why I have faith in the methods of science but not necessarily in scientists. Experts in science have a store of credibility that can be maintained only by their performance. I have a great deal of trust in the meteorologists at the National Weather Service because their forecasts are 80%–90% accurate (no weatherman jokes, please — I used to be one!). But if most of their predictions began...

    Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador won the 2018 election by a landslide. His approach to government spending — even in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic fallout — might best be compared to that of conservative icons Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. Recognizing that industrial wind and solar electricity bring little to no value to electrical grids, Mexico is moving to avoid the higher electrical prices experienced by Germany, Denmark, Great Britain, South Australia, California, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and other governments that have heavily subsidized their supply of intermittent electricity. The only things ‘inevitable’ about the ‘transition’...

    In a scenario straight out of “The Twilight Zone,” a group of NASA scientists working on an experiment in Antarctica have detected evidence of a parallel universe — where the rules of physics are the opposite of our own, according to a report. The concept of a parallel universe has been around since the early 1960s, mostly in the minds of fans of sci-fi TV shows and comics, but now a cosmic ray detection experiment has found particles that could be from a parallel realm that also was born in the Big Bang, the Daily Star reported. The experts used...
  • Sun lockdown: Is a solar minimum really going to bring famine, freezing temps, and droughts to Earth?

    It’s May 16, 2020, which means that there is nothing out of the ordinary about the phrase ‘sun lockdown’ trending on search engines and social media. Most of us are in lockdown, after all, because of the coronavirus pandemic, and so if the sun wants to join us, so be it, right? Wrong, some exaggerated headlines suggest, as they promise famine, freezing temps, and droughts on Earth because the sun has entered a completely predictable and entirely normal solar minimum, according to Astronomer Dr. Tony Phillips in an interview with The Sun.
