    French health authorities reported a record 499 new deaths from coronavirus on Tuesday, taking the total to 3,523, an increase of 17 percent in the past 24 hours. It was the third consecutive day that the rate of deaths accelerated in France, which is now in its third week of lockdown to try to slow the spread of the virus. The daily government tally only accounts for those dying in hospital but authorities say they will very soon be able to compile data on deaths in retirement homes, which is likely to result in a big increase in registered fatalities....

    MANCHESTER, N.H. - A super PAC supporting former Vice President Joe Biden’s White House bid is urging donors to “dig deep right now” into their pockets and is warning that if Biden’s campaign collapses, Democrats could face “a doomsday scenario.” The memo from the Unite the Country super PAC -- seen as a signal of deep concerns among Biden supporters about the former vice president’s White House prospects -- warned that “donors hedging their bets on Biden because of [Mike] Bloomberg could be creating a doomsday scenario for the Democrats everywhere.” **SNIP** The memo, written by Unite the Country treasurer...
  • Iowa Democratic vote-reporting meltdown hands opening to Trump

    CNN ^ | Feb 4, 2020 | Analysis by Stephen Collinson, CNN
    (CNN)The Democratic 2020 crusade to oust President Donald Trump could not have got off to a more disastrous and embarrassing start. The party couldn't even deliver a first-in-the-nation election night winner after a vote-reporting debacle in Iowa — where candidates spent months and millions of dollars vying for a glittering opening prize in their nominating duel. "Iowa, you have shocked the nation," said former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg. It was a bold attempt to declare victory in the absence of a result, but the 38-year-old inadvertently cast an ironic judgment on a political train wreck. The big Hawkeye...

    LUTON, England -- At Bruderer UK, a small firm selling metal-stamping machines from an industrial estate just north of London, business kicked into high gear right after Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s big election win last month. Clients, including the Royal Mint which uses Bruderer equipment to make coins, at last knew for sure that Britain would quit the European Union on Jan. 31. Many have revived plans that had long been on hold. “For three years we were stuck in a rut of indecisiveness,” Bruderer UK managing director Adrian Haller said. “Once the election happened, there was a massive sigh...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed during a Sunday campaign event that “we’re all dead” if fossil fuels continue to be used as one of the world’s primary energy sources. Biden made the apocalyptic pronouncement while discussing climate change before a crowd of supporters in Peterborough, New Hampshire.
  • Now the Pentagon tells Bush: climate change will destroy us (2004. Britain will be 'Siberian' in less than 20 years)

    the guardian ^ | 2-21-2004 | Mark Townsend, paul harris
    A secret report, suppressed by US defence chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a 'Siberian' climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world. The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents.

    ROME–When Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg was 11 years old, her body had started to shut down due to severe self-starvation tied to debilitating depression. She spoke to almost no one but her immediate family. She was afraid of crowds. She was lost in her own world, and the world very nearly lost her. But thanks to the formal diagnosis of Asperger’s syndrome coupled with high-functioning autism and obsessive compulsive disorder, the now-16-year-old Swede has become quite literally the poster child for the generation that will have to deal with the destruction of our planet. Once she started receiving...

    I have to warn you: This is gross.By that I mean, it's disgusting what the climate panic brigade is doing to this clearly disturbed young lady.Speaking at the U.N. climate change conference earlier today, the 16-year-old Greta Thunberg lectured those present on their failure to act or whatever.Here's the video: CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO And here's a partial transcript: My message is: We'll be watching you [pause for laughs and applause]. This is all wrong. I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in school, on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come...

    You may not like Trump and I don’t either. But you need to recognize the genius of his game. Yes he is a narcissistic, immature serial liar, racist, sexist molester of women and opportunist. But guess what? He is still president. Yes he stands with America’s adversaries against American intelligence agencies, insults war heroes, tells people to go back to where they came from and uses his position to make American government his personal piggy bank. But it’s working. You have to understand Trump is not using a standard of right and wrong. That is what most people miss. He...

    Sky watchers will welcome the New Year with an exciting phenomenon: a rare Super Blood Wolf Moon that will coincide with a total lunar eclipse. Another total lunar eclipse is happening almost a year after 2018 Super Blue Moon Total Lunar Eclipse, only that it will not be a "blue" one this time around. The total lunar eclipse will be witnessed on the evening of Jan. 20 to 21 wherein the rare Super Blood Wolf Moon is going to pass through the northern half of Earth's shadow, according to meteorologist Scott Sutherland who revealed the news through The Weather Network....

    Doomba is basically just a plug-in for Whitehouse’s own (far more useful) Noesis tool, which is used to convert between different model, image, and animation formats — for example, if you’re a game designer who needs to convert a model from one platform to another without redesigning things from scratch. Except in this case, it’s taking the image data from a Roomba and converting it (and by extension, the living room that the map is based on) into one of the unholy caverns of hell for you to slaughter endless demonic hordes in. And while the tool is meant for...

    * John Hussman — the outspoken investor and former professor who's been predicting a stock crash — says traditionally diversified portfolios are set to offer their worst returns since the Great Depression over the next 12 years.* Hussman explains why he sees a US stock market drop of more than 60% coming, and breaks down why the Federal Reserve's past actions have created the situation. There's never been a worse time to be a conventional portfolio manager. Well, maybe back in the deepest, darkest throes of the Great Depression that crushed the US economy way back in 1929. But not...

    The whole thing is staged to coincide with the election. Women with children will be allowed by Mexico to approach the border. Trump will be forced to use the military to stop them, creating the ideal Democrat talking point, or so they think. Could the Dems "Kavanaugh" again and go 0-2? Apparently the whole "Caravan" is organized and financed by outsiders, it is rumored Soros, but I haven't seen that confirmed. brace yourself for a total S-Show starting in about a week

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    "At the end of the day" has been voted the most irritating, hackneyed expression in the English language. If once in a while it slips into our speech, no big whoop. But in her interview on With All Due Respect today, when Hillary's political director, Amanda Renteria, used the expression twice in her very first answer, it caught this NewsBuster's attention. And so I found myself counting. Three, four--could this really go on? Yes! Five, and . . . a final sixth time before the interview finally ground to an end! Not to be too apocalyptic, but it has been...
  • A solar shield could save us from climate change. But its sudden collapse would doom the planet

    01/22/2018 10:29:44 AM PST · by PROCON · 35 replies ^ | Jan. 22, 2018 | Katie Langin
    Last year, the planet was plagued by powerful hurricanes, blistering fires, and temperatures that ranked as some of the hottest on record—ratcheting up concern that we’re already knee-deep in climate change. To stave off the heat, some scientists have proposed blanketing Earth in a sheet of sunlight-reflecting particles called aerosols. This solar shield could cool the planet and buy us time, but a new study suggests that if politicians turned off the hypothetical cloud, they could plunge the planet into a sudden ecological Armageddon. The idea of injecting aerosols into the atmosphere first came to prominence in 2006, when...

Charles Pope • August 9, 2016 • Today’s reading from daily Mass (Tuesday of the 19th Week of the Year) features an unusual image and a seemingly “dark delight.”It was then I saw a hand stretched out to me, in which was a written scroll which he unrolled before me. It was covered with writing front and back, and written on it was: Lamentation and wailing and woe! He said to me: Son of man, eat what is before you; eat...

    It is, I promise, worse than you think. If your anxiety about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible, even within the lifetime of a teenager today. And yet the swelling seas — and the cities they will drown — have so dominated the picture of global warming, and so overwhelmed our capacity for climate panic, that they have occluded our perception of other threats, many much closer at hand. Rising oceans are bad, in fact very bad; but fleeing the coastline will not be enough. Indeed,...
