  • As a cattle person, I need to weigh-in on the “mass cattle die-off” video that’s going around.

    I know that video clip going around looks awful, but let me give some context here. There has been extreme heat and humidity in Western Kansas and cattle have died. This is normal, and 10,000 head total statewide is not a “mass die-off that will cripple the beef supply.” Not even close. There are roughly six million cattle in Kansas. Of those, over two million are “on feed” in confinement feedlots in the western half of the state. In the former United States, something like 125,000 head of cattle are slaughtered per day, Monday through Friday, with a reduced kill...

    John Roberts, or someone on his immediate staff, is the one who leaked the Dobbs decision a month ago. The votes to repeal Roe vs Wade and Casey vs Planned Parenthood was confirmed back in February, but Roberts has always wanted a compromise of some sorts that kept R v W. Roberts panicked and decided to leak the ruling & put pressure on the other 5 justices. ROBERTS LEAKED THIS, IS NOW DRAGGING HIS FEET ON RELEASING THE DECISION, VIOLENCE FROM THE LEFT ROBERTS HOPES WILL FORCE 1 OF THEM TO CAVE
  • Thousands ordered to evacuate as Pipeline Fire grows near Flagstaff, Arizona

    06/15/2022 8:59:52 AM PDT · by Roman_War_Criminal · 17 replies ^ | 6/14/22 | watchers
    At least 2 200 households near Flagstaff, Arizona were ordered to evacuate late Monday, June 13, 2022, due to threats posed by the growing Pipeline Fire. Due to conditions of extreme peril to the safety of persons and property, Flagstaff Mayor Paul Deasy signed a declaration of emergency for the Pipeline Fire, allowing him to govern by proclamation and impose regulations as needed. The fire started on Sunday morning, about 10 km (6 miles) north of Flagstaff, producing a noticeable plume of smoke and forcing recreationists in the area to leave immediately, especially those in the area of Schultz Pass...
  • Justin Trudeau: Using a Gun For Self Defense Is “Not a Right That You Have” In Canada

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | June 11, 2022 | Julian Conradson
    Fresh off of last week’s decision to implement a sweeping ban on handgun sales, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau doubled down and decried ‘American-style’ views on gun ownership while arguing that Canadians have no right whatsoever to use guns for self-defense. From Trudeau: “There are debates, and we have a culture where the difference is. Guns can be used for hunting or for sport shooting in Canada – and there are lots of gun owners, and they’re mostly law-respecting and law-abiding – but you can’t use a gun for self-protection in Canada. That’s not a right that you have in...
  • A Proud Aussie Barmah Forest Horsewoman in WW1 Dress Protests The Slaughter Of Wild Horses

    06/08/2022 6:02:25 PM PDT · by Ozguy1945 · 10 replies
    The poetic story of the taming of a herd of wild mountain horses lead by "the colt from old Regret" is an iconic piece of Australian heritage made in to the Kirk Douglas movie "The Man From Snowy River". But in the Socialist Left state of Victoria it is possible that these intelligent wild animals are being treated even worse that the human citizens. They are being slaughtered, often left to die horrible deaths alone in the bush where no one can see what is happening. Decent loving country people like Tanya Prior protested this yesterday on the steps of...
  • Lake Mead water level continues to tank at unprecedented rates

    Lake Mead is a reservoir is Nevada and Arizona, relied upon for example by the city of Las Vegas for drinking water. Last year, its water level was significantly lower than previous years. This year, it’s even lower. This is dramatic… If the trend does continue for the next two decades as it has been going on for the past two, it seems like things aren’t looking optimal for the Colorado river, the largest water reservoir by capacty in the US, and the Hoover Dam hydroelectric power plant. Lake Mead fell about 7 feet in May. I expect June will...

    Kmele Foster gives a very good update to the Christian Cooper/Amy Cooper story. If you don't know those names: That's the black bird watcher who accused the white "Central Park Karen" of making up fake charges against him and calling the cops on him. Here's what the media all knows, but which never tells you: Christian Cooper is known to have a history of doing this. He has complaints from multiple people of threatening their dogs. He, a man who hates dogs and routinely threatens to harm them, carries around a bag of dog treats just so he can lure...

    This is one the most fascinating short videos I have seen in awhile. I love dolphins, and as such I have always been fascinated by their behavior towards humans. Yet, when I ran across this video, I found myself watching it over and over again. Knowing how it would end up, but wishing for a different outcome. Yet dolphins are but big fish, and they must eat. Someone will inevitably reply to me, "Hey it's a mammal." Well I know that, and the carnivores one's like to eat smaller animals, regardless of the category we put them in.Normally when I...

    Celilo Miles, a wildlands firefighter with the Nez Perce Tribe, had all but given up on her dream of modeling when she got an Instagram message from a casting agency asking her to apply for a mysterious modeling gig. Miles had been home on the tribe’s reservation in Lapwai in North Central Idaho for the last two years. She had given up modeling in New York City, where she had lived for nearly four years. Miles had no idea that moving back home would open the door to the biggest fashion campaign of her career. Months later, after sending an...

    OROVADA, Nev. — Max Wilbert, standing on a hill overlooking a wide plain of brush and farmland, walks over to a black banner that’s grabbed a lot of media attention. In blood-red letters, the banner reads, “Lithium Lies.” Here in Nevada, activists like Wilbert are fighting against the largest lithium mine set for development in the United States. The mine is in the final stages of permits, and the lithium pulled from the ground here could fuel batteries for electric vehicles sold in the United States. But the grassroots movement against the project has been torn apart over an unrelated...

    Tropical Cyclone "Batsirai" formed well east of Madagascar on January 27, 2022, at a time Madagascar, Mozambique and Malawi were still assessing severe damage caused by the passage of Tropical Cyclone "Ana." Environmental conditions favor further intensification, leading to a possible catastrophic landfall in Madagascar on February 5. Up to 600 mm (24 inches) of rain is possible in some areas. Batsirai is the second named storm of the 2021/22 Southwest Indian Ocean cyclone season.

    Scientists are struggling to monitor an active volcano that erupted off the South Pacific island of Tonga at the weekend, after the explosion destroyed its sea-level crater and drowned its mass, obscuring it from satellites. The eruption of Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha’apai volcano, which sits on the seismically active Pacific Ring of Fire, sent tsunami waves across the Pacific Ocean and was heard some 2,300 kms (1,430 miles) away in New Zealand. “The concern at the moment is how little information we have and that’s scary,” said Janine Krippner, a New Zealand-based volcanologist with the Smithsonian Global Volcanism Program. “When the vent is...

  • Leftist Response to Collapse of Build Back Better Legislation Highlights Originating Motive for COVID-19

    The apoplectic response to Joe Manchin’s rebuke of Biden’s Build Back Better deal in general, and specifically, their reaction to losing the climate change agenda within it, points toward the original intent of COVID-19 in the first place. In this tweet, communist stenographer and narrative engineer Sam Stein (Politico/MSNBC) says the quiet part out loud: Point One – The “Build Back Better” agenda was never about anything except radical climate change legislation. Once you accept that, now admitted, baseline, things start to become much clearer. Point Two – The “Build Back Better” phrase came from the World Economic Forum and...
