  • Senate Democrats want Warren to talk costs on 'Medicare for All'

    A growing number of Senate Democrats say Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) should be more explicit about how she plans to pay for her “Medicare for All” plan. They say the transparency will be rewarded, and that Warren is taking a risk by not being more open about the costs of Medicare for All. “There are pluses and minuses to Medicare for All. You have to be direct about the fact that there are certain consequences of it that will affect people differently. The more you can be transparent about it, I think it’s important,” said Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), who...

    This represents the current Democrat strategy. Democrats are running their own version of a hostage scenario, only they've taken a sizable portion of the American public hostage to their eardrum-splitting insanity. Their hope is to create a crushing wave of noise and disruption through the use of bogus impeachment screeds, relentless media attacks, Antifa violence, never-ending investigations, daily Deep State leaks, Intelligence Community hits, strategically placed partisan polls, and the rest of the tactics they are deploying. That noise becomes overwhelming, which is the point. The never-ending churn is intended to wear out America to where enough voters so desire...

    NEW ORLEANS – Work crews are finalizing preparations for a controlled demolition that will take down twin tower cranes that have been swaying precariously over the ruins of the Hard Rock Hotel construction site since a fatal collapse one week ago. If all goes to plan, the cross beams of the cranes, which each weigh 145,000 pounds, will collapse where they stand, according to New Orleans Fire Department chief Tim McConnell.
  • Proving a Negative

    Proving a negative -- proving that the absence of something is definitively due to very specific reasons or circumstances -- is an inexact science at best. There is a hugely significant “negative” that has occurred recently, one that is quite plausibly due to some very distinct actions and clear-cut decisions made by the American oil industry and the Trump administration: the non-event that has happened is world crude oil prices not rising in spite of the cruise missile and drone attack on the Saudi oil fields on September 14th, 2019 that destroyed a significant portion of Saudi oil production, the...

    Today is Hazardous Waste Day in my little town. So I’ve rounded up 30 years worth of DIY leftover paint, stain, strippers and sealers that I’ve been saving for do-overs. As we’ve reached the point where even Raj has conceded that we are never going to repaint the entire house ourselves again, we’re hauling all this Schiff off to the toxic waste dump as we should have years ago.                  If only it was that simple. Please handle all hazardous waste with extreme caution as you never know how, or when, it will pop up again to pollute the environment.Posted from:...

    American Thinker.com ^ | October 19, 2019 | Lloyd Marcus
    The insanity going on before our very eyes regarding the Democrats' and fake news medias' latest campaign to impeach Trump over nonsense is infuriating millions of Americans. It is the equivalent of Adam Schiff flooding the airwaves with the lie that Trump stole his car and must be impeached for it. Meanwhile, Schiff's car is parked untouched in his driveway for all the world to see. Ignoring the truth that Schiff's car was not stolen, the Democrats and fake news media cart out a dozen witnesses (whistleblowers) who claim they saw Trump commit the crime. This is exactly what is...

    It looks like the “Queen of Warmongers” blinked. A face-to-face confrontation between Hillary Clinton and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard set for next week was averted when Clinton backed out of the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit in Washington, DC. Clinton aides cited a scheduling conflict late Friday
  • New 'invisibility cloak' is remarkably effective

    10/19/2019 9:36:43 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 21 replies
    Known as Quantum Stealth, the new invisibility cloak takes the form of a thin, inexpensive material that makes objects vanish from sight even though the background is still visible. The brainchild of Canadian camouflage design company Hyperstealth Biotechnology, the new material can conceal the presence of entire vehicles and could prove invaluable on the battlefield. It even works for non-visible wavelengths from mid- and near-ultraviolet to the infrared.

    US Defense Watch ^ | AUGUST 17, 2018 | BY RAY STARMANN
    Dear Admiral McRaven: Your OPED yesterday, which was picked up by every liberal media outlet in the country, was sadly indicative of the current state of mind of many of our nation’s recently retired and active duty senior military leaders. You stated that former CIA director John Brennan, “is one of the finest public servants I have ever known. Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don’t know him.” The man whom you describe as being...

    President Donald Trump gave an atta-boy to Republican Rep. Francis Rooney last year on the congressman’s home turf in swing state Florida. “I love it when he defends me,” the president said then. He might feel differently now. The second-term Republican said publicly Friday what others in his party are not, namely that acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney acknowledged a quid pro quo was at work when Trump held up U.S. aid to Ukraine in exchange for Kyiv’s investigation of Democrats and the 2016 elections. Mulvaney later claimed his comments had been misconstrued, but Rooney said he...

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) is fundraising off her feud with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, asking supporters to donate to her presidential campaign and calling on Clinton to "face her directly" in the 2020 Democratic primary. "Hillary Clinton accused Tulsi Gabbard — a combat veteran, soldier and Major in the Army National Guard — of being 'groomed' to be a 'Russian asset,'" reads a fundraising email sent by Gabbard's campaign on Saturday. "Tulsi fights back and demands Hillary join the race and face her directly." Gabbard in the email said that Clinton "finally came out from behind the curtain...
  • Watch: Parkrose coach Keanon Lowe disarms student

    PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Surveillance video obtained first by KOIN 6 News shows the dramatic moment when Parkrose High School football coach Keanon Lowe disarmed a student carrying a loaded shotgun on campus. Angel Granados-Diaz was 18 when he brought the gun to school on May 17. The video — obtained Friday from the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office through a public records request — is the visual accompaniment to the story recounted by Lowe during a press conference earlier this year.

    Anheuser-Busch InBev has accused rival brewer Miller Coors of obtaining the secret recipes for Bud Light and Michelob Ultra, the latest shot in a long-running legal dispute. The world's largest brewer claimed Thursday in U.S. court documents that Miller Coors, a subsidiary of Molson Coors, has obtained the "precise recipes" for some of its most popular beers, which it considers trade secrets. The battle between the brewers started when Anheuser-Busch InBev suggested in advertisements during this year's Super Bowl that corn syrup was being used to make Miller Lite and Coors Lite. Miller Coors responded in March with a lawsuit...

    Defense contractor Northrop Grumman has begun moving secret cargo through a Southern California marina this weekend. The large object will be taken from a Northrop Grumman facility in Redondo Beach to a barge for shipment to San Diego. Northrop Grumman officials cited national security concerns in declining to provide information about the object. The company agreed on Oct. 15 to pay the city $25,000 for a licensing agreement to use the marina and for any costs the city incurs.

    FULL TITLE: Ex-NFL star Jack Brewer: Why Trump policies are secretly loved by most liberals (even if they won’t admit it) Imagine a country where the president was promoted by the media as a far-right extremist, yet his signature policies align with the core issues preached by far-left liberals. If we could remove the double standard, President Donald Trump would likely be more popular with liberals than favorites like Bill Clinton or John F. Kennedy. In under 3 years, Trump has accomplished many of the things that Democrats, for years, have promised they would do. Since Election Day 2016, the...

    While campaigning in Las Vegas, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders experienced chest pains, his presidential campaign staff reports. What happened next is really quite remarkable.He was transported to a nearby hospital within an hour of presenting with symptoms, placed on a priority list due to his condition and then treated by the best physicians, nurses, technicians in the world using the most advanced equipment available. During the procedure, two stents were inserted into his cardiac arteries to relieve blockage. Best of all, his prognosis for recovery is excellent.Thank goodness his health scare did not happen in Cuba. Cuba does not have...

    There are ways to try to persuade someone to see your side of an issue or argument, and there are ways that not only won’t convince anyone, but are much more likely to just tick them off. Like standing in the middle of the street…with a banner…singing like idiots…when people are trying to get to work. One guy had enough of the climate change social justice BS Friday morning, and he took the required action to clear a street so he and other hard-working people could get to their jobs.

    Democratic presidential hopeful Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has apparently gotten an endorsement she said she can do without — from former KKK leader David Duke. The 68-year-old white supremacist and former GOP Louisiana state senator plastered a banner on his Twitter page prominently featuring a photograph of the Hawaiian lawmaker, the New York Post reported. “Tulsi Gabbard for President,” it blares, along with the tagline: “Finally a candidate who will actually put America First rather than Israel First!”
