    GOMA, DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO — At least 14 civilians were killed on Saturday in a six-hour attack by rebels on the town of Beni in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, local officials told Reuters, warning the unrest may hamper efforts to quash an Ebola epidemic in the area. The latest outbreak of the deadly disease has been focused in North Kivu and Ituri provinces, which have been a tinder box of armed rebellion and ethnic killing since two civil wars in the late 1990s. Militants believed to belong to the Allied Democratic Forces, a Ugandan Islamist group active in...

    I am not so surprised at the scheming Democrats are doing to stop President Trump and his Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh. I am surprised that Republicans have scurried to their safe spaces and have been missing and silent. No one defending Kavanaugh, speaking up for him, for the institution, and for President Trump. Granted many are GOPe but still, Kavanaugh is an incredible pick for the Supreme Court and here they, our Senators, sit on their hands. WHAT ARE YOUR SENATORS DOING?
  • Christine Blasey Ford Reaches Deal to Testify at Kavanaugh Hearing [Rameriz story is falling apart]

    I want to excerpt a portion of this NY Times story. It looks like the new accusations against Judge Kavanaugh are already falling apart. The Times had interviewed several dozen people over the past week in an attempt to corroborate her story, and could find no one with firsthand knowledge. Ms. Ramirez herself contacted former Yale classmates asking if they recalled the incident and told some of them that she could not be certain Mr. Kavanaugh was the one who exposed himself.

    Avenetti reportedly alleges Kavenaugh participated in multiple gang rapes? Does anyone really believe that this could happen without of the victims, the parents of the victims, contacting the police? And does anyone believe that this would not have been discovered in the six background investigations conducted by the govt through checking police records and interviewing neighbors, friends, former employees of Kavanaugh? I conducted background investigations for the Dept. of Defense for 7 years and the chances that something as serious as this would not be discovered through interviews or law enforcement record checks would be close to zero.

    Captain Capitalism has a post up entitled "How the Government Outsources Socialism" which is an interesting read: One of the rare times I was listening to Barack Obama he said something I will never forget. He said that he and the democrat party were not trying to install some socialist regime where they were going to take over the means of production, but were going to redistribute the profits more charitably to make things fairer. Though I was ideologically opposed to Barack Obama, I believed him. I did not think he and the democrats were going to take over the...
  • New Movie Claims Google Handed the Popular Vote to Hillary Clinton in 2016

    When Donald Trump surprised the world by winning the 2016 election, liberals clung to the idea that his victory was illegitimate because Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. According to a psychologist who supported Clinton in 2016, however, Google's bias in Clinton's favor may remove even that symbolic victory from her. Almost all of Clinton's popular vote margin could be attributed to Google bias, making her win "negligible." Dr. Robert Epstein, a psychologist who earned his Ph.D. at Harvard, actually reported this finding last year, but he explains how it works in the upcoming film "The Creepy Line." Epstein made...

    High-profile celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti emerged on Sunday evening and demanded to have a witness testify to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee before they vote on Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court. He claims he has compelling evidence of sexual allegations against Kavanaugh. He claims he can name Kavanaugh's long-time sexual partner, and even presented photos to support his allegation that this relationship involved not one, but TWO pregnancies.

    Los Angeles County... Search and Rescue teams conducted 681 missions in 2017, the largest number in five years. It’s a 38% increase from the 491 rescues they did in 2013. The teams’ leaders say the single largest factor for that increase is people posting videos of extreme activities online. Then, without any thought about the difficulty, others try to re-create their own 15-second version of glory. Rescue teams in Santa Barbara and San Bernardino counties have seen similar increases. “People will post videos of themselves jumping off of Hermit Falls or the Malibu rock pool, and they post it in...

True north? Magnetic North? Distant mountains rising from the horizon during the flight etc. He finally believes that the international space station exists after I insisted that he join me on a clear night to watch it go over. He seems to be obsessed with the notion that doom and destruction are always nearing. He's been like chicken little about gun control...

    HEROISM AND GENIUS is the dramatic flesh-and-blood account of the real men who built the West's civilization during the dark centuries after the collapse of the Roman Empire. It tells the inspiring story of how these towering giants of mankind, their minds imbued with the genius of Christianity, integrated the achievements of the Jewish people, Greeks, Romans, Arabs and Germanics, creating a new society that embodied the Catholic vision of God and man, time and eternity. Although it highlights the role of priests, there are countless interesting insights into the formidable laymen and women who also shaped the new social...
