The author questioned how the government was handling the Covid pandemic, writing letters to the editor of the local paper. My dad told me ''never, ever, write a letter to the editor of the paper, you'll be viewed as a goofball to the readers''. If your case is less than perfect, the prosecutor is going to produce evidence showing that you displayed one of these.  He will argue that these signs serve as clear evidence of your desire or even eagerness to shoot or kill someone. On November 7, 1937, the Los Angeles Examiner published a prescient map predicting how Imperial Japan could attack the U.S. during World War II. While the rest of us were napping during lockdown, two 17-year-olds from Ontario were working hard to invent a new device to help people who are deaf, using a camera and tiny computer to translate American Sign Language (ASL) into spoken English.
In her new book, ''Laptop from Hell'' Post columnist Miranda Devine reconstructs the Biden family’s quest for cash by using files left on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop. Etymologically, “procrastination” is derived from the Latin verb procrastinare — to put off until tomorrow. But it’s more than just voluntarily delaying. Procrastination is also derived from the ancient Greek word akrasia — doing something against our better judgment. A Montana Army National Guard soldier is the first woman ever to graduate from the Army’s intensive, seven-week sniper course. Sgt. Daniel Perry was swarmed by a group of Black Lives Matter protesters, including Garrett Foster, who approached his car with an AK-47 in the ''ready position'' as protesters began banging on the car and throwing bricks.
It’s not just the ''let’s go Brandon'' meme. The latest viral trend to mock President Joe Biden are Biden gas pump stickers that say ''I did that'' and show the president pointing in the direction of the prices. Velu Nachiyar & Kuyili: With the exception of Tamil Nadu, both women are relatively unknown across the country despite their epic warfare tactics and historic win against the British in the eighteenth century. In 1881 in Old Fort Sumner, New Mexico, William H. Bonney, known as Billy the Kid, runs into an old friend, Pat Garrett. Garrett informs Billy that the locals want him out of the country, and in five days, when he becomes Sheriff, he will make Billy leave. Even politicians can be sued for slander for public statements made ''outside their seat'', including vile statements made by presidential candidate Joe Biden.
Solo shares that alcohol measurements were not an intentional design element when it comes to the widely used plastic cup. Instead, the company recommends other common uses for Solo cup measurements, like mouthwash, cereal and the recommended amount of water we need to drink each day. If you're like many guys, it's not for lack of trying. You might be spending hours clicking profiles and messaging women on dating sites. You sometimes get a response, but rarely from anyone you actually want to date. These people think the criminals killed by Kyle Rittenhouse in self defense were the real ''heros'' that night. And, they have a few more whacky views on life in America. Long marginalized and misrepresented in U.S. history, the Wampanoags are bracing for the 400th anniversary of the first Pilgrim Thanksgiving in 1621.
Cousin Eddie, the character from ''National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation'' and I have a few things in common, for example, we both showed up at a relative's home in our motorhome for a 3 week stay. My friends and family could probably come up with a few other similarities. In a controversial passage in Plato's ''Republic'', Socrates introduced the idea of the ''noble lie'' (gennaios pseudos). A majestic fiction, he says, could sometimes serve society by persuading uninformed citizens of something good for them. The general’s death from Covid, despite his vaccination status, indicates one thing very plainly: the vaccines don’t work. If they did, if they really prevented anyone from contracting the disease, Powell might still be alive. In 1954, homosexuality was illegal. Alan Turing was given a choice between prison or chemical castration. He committed suicide.
A remarkable discovery in the desert outside of Tucson, Arizona has scholars buzzing around the world. For some strange reason, I really like this ''My Pillow'' commercial. So what does it take to make a good ad? Well, as you’ll see in the examples shown, there are a few common traits the best commercials share. Over the course of around 250 years, seafaring Norsemen left their homes to pursue riches abroad. The era has become almost legendary and left a lasting legacy on the world. But how much do you know about the long history of the Vikings? In August 2021, a claim was made that Snopes’ co-founder and CEO David Mikkelson was revealed to be a serial plagiarizer, sloppily violating copyrights of other publications in an attempt to make the site look extremely proactive in uncovering news.
From 1850 to 1900, times and places out West were still unsettled, lands were wide open, new territory needed exploring, law enforcement was not a 911 call away, and those ventured far from the dusty streets of civilization depended on themselves and reliable tools for their daily existence. By the middle of the nineteenth century, smoking in general was a big thing, socially acceptable, manly, and becoming ever easier with the introduction of cigars, cigarettes and matches. Tobacco would induce a state of 'vertigo, loss of power in the limbs, a sense of deadly faintness, cold sweat, inability to speak or think, nausea and vomiting.' This might be unpleasant, but in Salter's experience it would halt an asthma attack. Back in the 1980s when the McDonald’s Quarter Pounder was the burger to beat, A&W had the great idea to debut a 1/3 Pound Burger at the same price as a Quarter Pounder. More meat for your dollar—what could go wrong? The more you yoga, the more you toot. Not only is it normal to fart in yoga, but it may be good for you.
In the era of Cold War the Western information space was full of numerous fantastic stories about Soviet submarines. Having taken shape in books and websites, those tales still keep Americans and Europeans on the trot. RusNavy.com tries to demolish the foremost fables of Western ''folklore'' of 1950-80's.

Levine is being celebrated as being the first female four-star admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps. This is an affront to women everywhere. Levine is transgender, a man pretending to be a woman, and we are expected to pretend right along with him. Air America's slogan was ''Anything, Anytime, Anywhere''. Pilots delivered everything from rice to munitions to bodies, both living and dead, and the work was never boring. There was no such thing as a typical day. Your atomic clock needs to receive signals from the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado (NIST) to correct the time. Place your atomic clock in a window, or outside, facing towards Colorado. Leave it for at least four minutes so that it can find the signal. On a daily basis, the clock will search for a signal at 2 AM for eight minutes, but, depending where it is mounted in your home, may not find it.
The Halloween model of low-budget production, fresh-faced casts, and unstoppable, knife-wielding, holiday-minded killers has been adopted by scores of other filmmakers and films. Most horror movies that take place in a house follow a similar plot. The family move into a house where a murder took place years ago, the house was on a budget so they bought it and they are happy until strange things start to happen. The Ustasha of Yugoslavia was a Muslim-Catholic alliance of Nazi killers so beastly that even Nazi officials in Berlin were horrified. The Ustasha and three related crack divisions of Arab-Nazi Waffen SS comprised of tens of thousands of Muslim volunteers and terrorized people of all faiths in Yugoslavia. Evidently, common sense and years of experience are no longer needed to get a job at the White House.
The fledgling pharmaceutical industry, sponsored by the ‘Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research’, had something they never had before – a large supply of human test subjects. Supplied by the U.S. military’s first draft, the test pool of subjects ballooned to over 6 million men. A lot of the greatest pilots who ever lived will tell you that Bob Hoover was the greatest pilot who ever lived. Shot down in  France in World War II, Hoover spent 16 months as a POW, spending much of the time in solitary confinement as punishment for two dozen escape attempts. Finally, he succeeded just before the end of the war by stealing a German fighter. The ribbons on Admiral Levine's chest are basically ''participation awards''. Click to see real military ribbons.

A senior Biden health appointee who made history when she became the nation's highest-ranking openly transgender official has also become its first openly transgender four-star officer. There is a massive propaganda push against those choosing not to vaccinate against COVID-19 with the experimental mRNA vaccines. Mainstream media, the big tech corporations, and our government have combined efforts to reward compliance and to shame and marginalize non-compliance. Ron Bolen figured a 12-hour hike up the mountain, seven up, five down. His backpack contained water, a collapsible water bottle, water purification tablets, a couple of protein cookies, rain gear, a first aid kit and his phone, onto which he had downloaded a map of the area.
Critics that Fauci was funding research in labs that were actually creating pandemic pathogens that, if leaked or if they fell into the wrong hands, might create the very human pandemic they were trying to prevent. Well, guess what?

In 1868, Horatio Seymour was nominated as the Democratic presidential candidate, and Frank Blair, Jr.was nominated for vice president. The campaign slogan was ''Our Ticket, Our Motto, This Is a White Man’s Country; Let White Men Rule.'' It was one of the most audacious space missions ever. As the spacecraft touched down on a comet and neared its closest approach to the Sun, recounting the drama, disappointments and jubilation of a 30-year quest. Planeloads of migrants are being flown to locations all across America by President Biden's administration to quietly resettle them in communities who are not aware of it until it is too  late. Half a century ago, Democrats looked at the country and realized they were never going to convince Americans to agree with them. But they noticed that people in most other countries of the world already agreed with them. The solution was obvious.
The Biden administration decided to dispatch 13,000 Afghanis, including at least one pedophile, to Wisconsin. Sparta, a small town of less than ten thousand, could only watch as a population of Afghans outnumbering its own population created a new Afghanistan on the premises of Fort McCoy. 13,000 people who either don't know how to, or refuse to use, a modern toilet It’s not an understatement to say this bill, if passed, will fundamentally change our country forever. Americans will wake up in a few years and wonder what happened to their freedom. We can’t let that happen. 'Fox News Primetime' host Ben Domenech explores how respect for U.S. military has transformed under the new administration. As Domenech talked about the brave men in the ranks who still risk their lives to protect us, he got a little choc ked-up, and I followed right along behind him. More than 2.7 billion miles from the sun—29 times farther than Earth treads—a tiny sliver of sunlight reflected off something plummeting toward our home star. Something icy. Something unimaginably old. Something big.
In 1859, a woman identifying herself as ''the Queen of Heaven'' appeared in Wisconsin. Some might say these encounters are a form of necromancy, others that the person reporting the vision is mentally ill or just seeking attention. Virginia voters were bombarded with an unsolicited fake newspaper, designed to look like a real local one, that included misleading content echoing Democratic gubernatiorial hopeful Terry McAuliffe's campaign message. From 2012: Industry insiders have speculated that Wheaties, like Corn Flakes, wasn’t healthy enough for the Fiber One crowd and wasn’t bad enough for those who wanted to eat Lucky Charms or Frosted Flakes. Known as dactyloscopy, a system of fingerprint identification was developed from the work of Sir Francis Galton by Sir Edward R. Henry.

William Shatner, age 90, who, as commanding officer James Tiberius Kirk, said ''to boldly go where no man has gone before'' at the start of each episode of Star Trek, is actually going to do it, which will make him the world's oldest astronaut. Hopefully, the asteroid will strike in an ocean, but if not, we might have to bend over and kiss our ass goodbye if this doesn't work. In the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, most of the city was destroyed by the blaze. The fire was so enormous it actually leapt across the river. One-third of the city's population of 300,000 were left homeless and at least 300 people died. While the Amerika intelligentsia persists in butchering your children’s souls in their grisly game of social engineering, they have the temerity to deny they’re doing it and then to turn around and call you a ''domestic terrorist'' if you object.
The Wayback Machine is perhaps one of the most useful tools available on the Internet. Now Internet Archive has created the ''Wayforward Machine'', which travels forward in time to a deeply dystopian apocalyptic 2046. The sister of dictator Kim Jong-un and youngest child of Kim Jong-il, had spent her life in the shadows. But, recent developments indicate she's the likely heir to the North Korean leadership - whether her brother likes it or not. As race car driver Brandon Brown gushed about his Talladega win, the raucous Alabama crowd delivered a message to NBC’s listeners: ‘F*** Joe Biden.’ The NBC reporter engaged in a desperate bit of damage control, explaining to the listeners that they were actually chants of ‘Let’s go Brandon!’ The unexplained illness, which was first recorded in Cuba has since spread to US embassies across the world with a reported 130 cases. Symptoms include hearing loss, severe headaches, memory issues, dizziness and brain injury. But is it really just '' mass hysteria''?
The phrase refers to planes that are complete and ready to fly, but don’t have a customer to go to. These aircraft don’t wear a livery, owing to having no customer, leaving them with white tails, hence their name. Who's ''smugger'' the theorists or the anti-theorists? The anti-conspiracy thinkers should not be so quick to assert their superiority, some of those theories turn out to be true. The Biden administration’s goal is to increase tax revenue by making sure no income avoids detection. Financial institutions will report any flows in and out of business and personal accounts of more than $600. The Stasi had 91,000 employees at its peak—roughly one in every 30 residents was a Stasi agent.

These emergency rulings – short, unsigned and issued without hearing oral arguments – undermine the public’s faith in the integrity of the court. A homeowner has discovered a perfectly preserved newspaper advertisement showing an artist’s impression of her three-bedroom semidetached house when it was first built eight decades ago. The people of Vermont once decided that socialist Bernie Sanders best represents them. So, it only makes sense that radically far-left ice cream company Ben & Jerry's would be based there. Ben & Jerry's has a history of making ignorant political statements and this one is right up there, if not tops. In 2013, plans to build the 170-mile Nicaragua Grand Canal, connecting the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, were announced. The $40 billion venture would challenge the 8th wonder of the world,  the Panama Canal, and forever change international shipping routes.
Michele Weslander Quaid's career took her around the world, including combat zones in Iraq and Afghanistan to support our troops, helping her appreciate how fortunate she was to have been born in America - home of the free because of the brave. The author of this piece points out the dangerous erosion of traditional standards of journalism and particularly the distinction between reporting and comment. ''The Razor’s Edge'' tells the story of an American who, having prepared himself by acquiring a deep tan and donning Indian garb, visits the guru Shri Ganesha and at his hands has an ecstatic spiritual experience. About 3,600 years ago, inhabitants of an ancient city near Jericho went about their business as a space rock sped toward them at 38,000 miles per hour.
President Biden, who is renowned for sharing memories that did not happen, said at a wildfire-focused event in Idaho that his ''first job offer'' came from lumber and wood products business Boise Cascade, but that was news to the company. For thousands of years, surgeons used sugar for healing wounds. During the Napoleonic wars, soldiers packed gunshot-wounds with it, helping to keep the wound dry, and promoting new tissue to grow. Be sure to add granulated sugar to your emergency survival kit. More than 55 million people worldwide are living with dementia, a neurological disorder that robs them of their memory. The progressive condition can be caused by stroke, brain injury or Alzheimer's disease. The Second Amendment to the Constitution states simply: ''A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.'' That language and that idea were clearly important to the Founding Fathers.
Conspiracy theories have always been a part of human culture; such ideation transcends generations, national boundaries, and political partisanship. During World War II, ''Operation Cornflakes' involved dropping mailbags into Germany containing fake newspapers. Some of the mail bore stamps with a picture of a skeletal-looking Hitler.
The 230-year-old publication—which claims to make predictions with 80% accuracy—just released its annual forecast for winter 2021-2022. It's going to be so cold across the country, they have actually taken to calling it the ''season of shivers''.

Gun violence in the United States results in thousands of deaths and injuries annually, but about one-third are suicides, minority gang/drug wars in the hood and cops kill a big percentage. One of comedian George Carlin’s more notable quotes, pointing out a reality of American life is, ''It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it.'' His words are a simple commentary on the ruling class, the elites, the cabal, the establishment, or the deep state, whatever you prefer to call the Big Club. The official presidential portraits, from the first of George Washington to our present Joseph Biden.
Our hand-picked president of Afghanistan got out when the gettin' was good, and took so many duffle bags of money with him, he had to leave some of them on the runway. How can any American believe anything President Biden says after he’s lied so blatantly about an Afghanistan evacuation he claims was an extraordinary success? Around the start of the first century a controversial Jewish rabbi named Yeshua ben Yosef gathered a following and his life and teachings provided the seed that grew into Christianity.  CAUTION: Some may find this offensive. We get the first Monday of September off every year because this man was a complete jackass. His refusal to negotiate, or even talk to the unions about poor working conditions at his Pullman rail car company led to nationwide riots in 1894. President Grover Cleveland, in an attempt to calm the public, declared a national day to honor labor,
As invasive pythons choke the life out of South Florida, it's down to a loose-knit group of thrill-seeking bounty hunters to get rid of them. Knife-edged and salient, there is no simpler or more effective form of journalism than the editorial or political cartoon. The message – usually critical – is instantaneous, and often funny. Fenix Ammunition effectively tells Biden voters it doesn't want their money. In this day and age, when many businesses sacrifice nothing to get all they can, this company is making a statement, telling Biden voters their business is not welcome. Why was Napoleon always pictured with his right hand hidden?
A Spanish-language flyer by the Red Cross provides detailed routes to the US southern border, shelter locations, and instructions on how to jump off a moving train safely. Canada’s first anti-slavery law, in July,1793, did not outlaw slavery. It was called ''An Act to Prevent the Future Introduction of Slaves.''

In brokering the surrender of entire Afghan army divisions, the Taliban took control of billions worth of American-made weapons and equipment, including small arms, Humvees, pickup trucks, aircraft and drones.
In a hastily called news conference following the fall of Kabul, President Joe Biden and his advisors tried to control the damage. But it may be too late. Biden not only lost Afghanistan, he lost credibility, and with that, the American people. Dostadning advocates the proactive and mindful clearing out of possessions before death. The idea is that it saves relatives the onerous task of making decisions about what to keep and what to throw or give away. The reasons why Kamala Harris would make a lousy president in this 2020 article haven't changed. In the movie, those out to destroy the Senator had information about his homosexual affair during the war. In the case of the Wyoming senator, those seeking to unseat him had information about the senator's son.
In 1961, Germans were shocked when thousands of babies were born with severe birth defects, most with deformities of the arms and legs. Doctors suspected thalidomide, a remedy for insomnia, headaches, tension and nausea. The drug manufacturer rejected this as unproven speculation. Robert Shaw took the role for free to dodge the wrath of the IRS. Shaw was already in deep with the IRS due to tax debt, so Shaw made the journey back to the United States and squeezed all of his scenes into the minimum amount of time so he could be there without collecting any money.  In many parts of the world, paid mourning is a professional occupation. It’s not as uncommon as it sounds to an outsider's ears. In fact, you might be surprised to learn it’s practiced in the United States. Forget Congress, the Senate, or whatever glamorous position you ever fantasized about or not, even president of the United States, if you want to have a serious impact from your work, if, as they say, you want to make a difference, to change this country for the good in the short and long term, run for your local school board.
Flight attendants have definitely been dealing with difficult passengers forever — and they swap battle stories of drunken, frisky, or just plain disgusting flyers. In 1975 a congressional hearing revealed the CIA had numerous top-secret weapons including a gun that became known as the ''CIA heart attack gun''. The Apple built and operated surveillance system could very easily be used to scan content for anything they or the government decides it wants to control.
We're all being peer pressured into getting the COVID-19 vaccine by news stations, political leaders and the CDC because it's ''the right thing to do.'' What if it's not what you want to do?

President Biden announced “tough” new measures being imposed on federal employees and those who want to do business with the federal government. In 1916, more than 37 tons of bricks were mailed to Vernal, Utah, from Salt Lake City, to build the local bank building. The postage was cheaper than paying a freight company to haul them to the remote town, and the post office lost money on every brick.

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz blasted Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for saying that Cubans who come to the U.S. by sea will be turned away as his department releases thousands of illegal migrants, stopped at the southern border, into U.S. communities.

The pandemic helped create hundreds of thousands of new RVers, who discovered they could take the family on vacation without staying at motels or eating in restaurants. But, many are finding out that this can be hard work. The NSA collects, processes, and disseminates intelligence information from foreign electronic signals for national foreign intelligence and counterintelligence purposes and to support military operations. In other words, the NSA intercepts communications. However, they are not legally allowed to spy on US nationals without a warrant, rubber-stamped by friendly judges.
David Arthur Johnson's His last purchases-beer, cigarettes, pot-occurred 18 years ago, he says, on his 31st birthday. He claims he hasn't spent any money since. It's true, his friends say, no money at all. Hundreds of patents show SARS-CoV-2 is a manmade virus that has been tinkered with for decades. Much of the research was funded by the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) under the direction of Dr. Anthony Fauci, and may have been an outgrowth of attempts to develop an HIV vaccine. The new Justice Department Civil Rights Chief, Kristen Clarke, announced  there will be no investigation into the thousands of  deaths in nursing homes caused by Democratic governors like Cuomo of New York.

This tough little horse, derived from the horses of Portugal and Spain, has been present in this rugged mountain area for nearly 200 years. If lost, the herd cannot be restored; and so its biological viability, together with its history, must be preserved. Rockefeller was responsible for gathering together a large section of parkland in this beautiful area amidst a furor of ranchers and land holders. Putting together a series of real estate deals, Rockefeller's Snake River Land Company was able to amass 35,000 acres of Jackson Hole properties. Marketed as “the most dramatic, comfortable, convenient and unique RV in the world,” the Heli-Camper wasn’t an actual Winnebago RV converted into a flying machine, but a giant helicopter decked as a home.
President Biden and his handlers are taking full crediit that this July Fourth will serve as a breakthrough moment in the nation’s recovery from the Wuhan engineered virus. There is significant pushback by Native Americans against so-called Pretendians or Pretend Indians, including the passage of a national law prohibiting non-Native people from marketing themselves as ''Indian''.  Tombstone is a Western classic for good reason. Though many actors have solid performances within it, Val Kilmer's Doc Holliday is a standout role. Look for someone who is obsessed with race, always talking about it, tweeting about it, and screaming at other people about it. It's a clear sign of a Critical Race Theory disciple.
Since the vaccines began being distributed some of the side effects have included severe allergic reactions including anaphylaxis, seizures and convulsions, persistent headache and migraine, paralysis and sudden death within hours or days. Because we were fighting ourselves, all the casualties were ours. An estimated 50,000 Americans were wounded or killed during the three day battle at Gettysburg. The ''Wild West'' that America fell in love with didn't exist. It was invented by Buffalo Bill — who himself was a character invented by the eccentric William F. Cody. Questionable, inebriated art critics have referred to Custer’s Last Fight as the most viewed piece of artwork in the history of America.
The CEO of Mutual of Omaha, V.J. Skutt, agreed to sponsor the program because he felt a TV show that featured animals in their natural habitats would inspire viewers to become interested in wildlife preservation. During the Inquisition, two Dominican friars published the book, Malleus Maleficarum (Hammer of Witches) promoting the idea that women are ievil and form pacts with the devil.

Atomic clocks, sometimes called radio-controlled clocks, pick up the signal of the National Institute of Standards and Technology's atomic clock from a radio transmitter in Fort Collins, Colorado. By asking a simple-sounding question — What is the summit? — the researchers are raising doubts about past accomplishments and raising standards for future ones.

Parents worried their kids are being indoctrinated with critical race theory can't get straight answers. Local school boards and principals lie to them, claiming children are merely being taught to be ''critical thinkers''.  In 1971, the Wild and Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act passed through both houses of Congress unanimously — with not a single dissenting vote. The act makes it plain: Wild horses are “living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West.
