“The Air Force Will Protect Its Assets”: Govt Warns Facebook Group Against Planned Raid of ‘Area 51’

Recall, two days ago we reported that more than 700,000 Facebook users had “jokingly” signed up to a group that was planning to storm Area 51 in September. The U.S. Air Force site is often the center of many alien conspiracy theories and the “joke” idea was an attempt to “see them aliens”.

It looks as though the government now wants to make sure that those behind the “joke” know it is being taken very seriously.

According to CNN, a spokesperson for the U.S. Air Force said: “[Area 51] is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces.”

The statement then includes the ominous sounding sentence:

“The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets.”

Analysis: ‘Green New Deal Has Always Rested on Deception’ — ‘Like a Dictator Declaring a Bogus ‘State of Emergency’ to Grant Him Extraordinary Powers’

[…]

Philip Klein of DC Examiner: The Green New Deal has always rested on deception. Ocasio-Cortez and her backers have argued that we are facing catastrophic emergency and that if we don’t act immediately the looming devastation will be unavoidable. But at the same time, the plan is a wish list of ideas that American socialists would be pushing regardless of the climate issue, and they are in no way necessary to address the global emergency: free college, more union jobs, free healthcare for all, economic security, and “guaranteeing a job with a family-sustaining wage, adequate family and medical leave, paid vacations, and retirement security to all people of the United States.”…

What’s fueled climate change skepticism — or denialism, as liberals would put it — is the belief that liberals are just using it as an excuse to implement their economic agenda. Chakrabarti has provided critics with more ammunition to say, “See, we told you so.”

Another Win for Judicial Watch: Kentucky to Remove Up to 250,000 Inactive Voters From Voter Registration Rolls

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced Monday that thanks to a consent judgment, Kentucky is set to remove 250,000 inactive voters from registration voter rolls.

This is in addition to the 1.6 million inactive voters names that are set to be removed from California’s voter rolls.

Judicial Watch is diligently working to clean up dirty voters rolls to reduce voter fraud leading up to the 2020 election.

We all know how much the Democrats love their dead voters!

AOC Refuses to Condemn Antifa Terror Attack on ICE Facility

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to condemn an Antifa terrorist attack on an ICE facility despite the terrorist invoking her “concentration camp” rhetoric in his own manifesto.

69-year-old Willem Van Spronsen was shot dead by police on Saturday morning at an ICE facility in Washington State after he threw molotov cocktails in an attempt to ignite a propane tank. He was also armed with an AR-15 semi-automatic weapon.

Van Spronsen was subsequently celebrated by some on the far-left and a copy of his manifesto emerged in which he stated, “I am Antifa” and said the attack was a protest against the establishment of “concentration camps” in the United States.

When asked by a Rebel Media reporter earlier today whether she would condemn the attack, AOC refused to explicitly condemn it, saying only that she would make a statement about the incident later.

Clinton’s Sex Problem: The Epstein, Buck, Weinstein NXIVM Sex Scandals

[…]

Now its time to pay the piper. The Epstein affair promises to ensnare a good many important political and business figures around the world if prosecutors are serious about following where the case leads them.

The Clintons have adroitly tried to distance themselves from the whole lot. Without, of course, returning any of the money. Ask the Haitians about getting your money back from the Clintons.

But the hypocrisy of moralistic outrage at anything regarding President Trump drowns in the obvious criminality behind a plethora of leading Democrat donors and fundraisers. Sex trafficking, rape, sex slaves. Murder by meth injection. You wouldn’t think it could get much messier than this.

Bill Clinton and the rest of the passengers on the Lolita Express better hope it doesn’t.

CNN has refused to comment on the fact that the terrorist who tried to massacre ICE agents on Saturday was a member of a group that received positive coverage on one of their broadcasts.

CPS is Taking Kids Away Based on ‘Predictive Analytics’ Computer Program to Judge Parents

Child Protective Services (CPS) is using a “Predictive Analytics” computer program to determine whether or not parents should be allowed to keep their children.

A father from Ohio named Aaron described on The Campaign Show with Patrick HowleySunday on Patriots Soapbox that predictive analysis was used against him as he fought to keep his daughter, who was taken away for three years by CPS and placed in foster care.

Health Impact News reported: “In several cases reported to Health Impact News, we have already seen such allegations used against parents. Social workers have literally written in their reports to the courts that a parent has characteristics that might indicate that they may abuse or neglect their child in the future, even though there is no evidence that they have harmed their child in the past. This is reminiscent of George Orwell’s “thought police” in the dystopian novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four. It is inconsistent with one of the foundational principles underlying the U.S. Constitution, that of the presumption of innocence. Some have equated the predictive analysis model with racial profiling, because the algorithms tend to disproportionately target people who are poor or part of a minority group.”

FBI to Ramp Up Social Media Surveillance

The FBI plans to step up its efforts to gather information from social media — issuing a call last week for a new tool to monitor Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other platforms “in a timely fashion.”

Citing the use of social media by terrorist groups, domestic threats, criminal organizations and foreign intelligence services, the FBI “needs near real time access to a full range of social media exchanges in order to obtain the most current information available,” according to the request for proposal.

In addition to information such as user IDs, the feds are interested in “emails, IP addresses, telephone numbers, and likely aliases” used over social media. The tool would also allow for location-based tracking, persistent keyword monitoring, and access to one’s personal social media history.

Grab Your Popcorn. Rahm Emanuel: AOC’s Chief of Staff Saikat Chakrabarti is a Snot-Nosed Punk (Video)

On Sunday Rahm Emanuel UNLOADED on the Socialist leader in a New York Times column by Maureen Dowd.

Rahm Emanuel told me Chakrabarti is “a snot-nosed punk” who has no idea about the battle scars Pelosi bears from the liberal fights she has led.

“What votes did you get?” Emanuel said, rhetorically challenging A.O.C.’s chief of staff. “You should only be so lucky to learn from somebody like Nancy who has shown incredible courage and who has twice returned the Democratic Party to power.

“We fought for years to create the majorities to get a Democratic president elected and re-elected, and they’re going to dither it away. They have not decided what’s more important: Do they want to beat Trump or do they want to clear the moderate and centrists out of the party? You really think weakening the speaker is the right strategy to try to get rid of Donald Trump and everything he stands for?”

Nearly 1 Million Californians Registered to Vote Are Ineligible, Says Non-Partisan Group

A non-partisan group has reported that there are still several counties in California where the number of registered voters is greater than the number of eligible citizens, with the total nearing one million people.

The Election Integrity Project California (EIPCa) stated in a release on July 8 (pdf) that if voter problems are not promptly addressed by state officials, fraudulent election activities may continue to haunt the state.

Using the state’s own data on active and inactive status registrants, the organization found that eight counties have not cleaned up their inactive registrant lists, despite a 2018 legal settlement that requires California counties to properly maintain their voter rolls and remove inactive voters according to federal law.

Peter Thiel: FBI, CIA Must Investigate ‘Treasonous’ Google

Billionaire investor, Facebook board member, and Trump supporter Peter Thiel recently called on the FBI and CIA to investigate Google for the “seemingly treasonous” act of aiding the Chinese military.

Axios reports that Peter Thiel, the billionaire Silicon Valley investor, Facebook board member, and longtime supporter of President Donald Trump, called on the FBI and CIA to investigate Google for allegedly aiding the Chinese military during his speech at the recent National Conservatism Conference. During the speech, Thiel noted “three questions that should be asked” by the federal government of tech giant Google.

Number one, how many foreign intelligence agencies have infiltrated your Manhattan Project for AI?

Number two, does Google’s senior management consider itself to have been thoroughly infiltrated by Chinese intelligence?

Number three, is it because they consider themselves to be so thoroughly infiltrated that they have engaged in the seemingly treasonous decision to work with the Chinese military and not with the US military. because they are making the sort of bad, short-term rationalistic [decision] that if the technology doesn’t go out the front door, it gets stolen out the backdoor anyway?

Thiel added that these questions “need to be asked by the FBI, by the CIA, and I’m not sure quite how to put this, I would like them to be asked in a not excessively gentle manner.”

President Trump Calls Out the Anti-American Left on Their “Disgraceful Behavior”

A key part of his tweet was left out by leftist media: “then come back and show us how it is done.”

President Trump just tweeted out a blistering message to the anti-American left on their “disgraceful behavior”.

They took a tweet that the president posted and used just a portion of it to make a fake claim saying he’s racist (see below). This is just more fake news from Democrats who resort to lying to damage President Trump.

He’s spot on with his assessment of how “disgusting” the language has been against America and Israel:

So sad to see the Democrats sticking up for people who speak so badly of our Country and who, in addition, hate Israel with a true and unbridled passion. Whenever confronted, they call their adversaries, including Nancy Pelosi, “RACIST.”

Their disgusting language and the many terrible things they say about the United States must not be allowed to go unchallenged.

If the Democrat Party wants to continue to condone such disgraceful behavior, then we look even more forward to seeing you at the ballot box in 2020!

Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

Reining in the Activist Federal Judiciary

How we can roll back the progressive assaults on our political liberty.

Vice President Pence announced recently that the Trump administration is finally pushing back against activist judges in Federal District Courts who issue nationwide injunctions against lawful executive policies on issues like immigration. This blatant usurpation of the executive branch’s powers has been another weapon in the progressives’ attack on the Constitution and its divided powers, which was primarily designed to protect the freedom and rights of citizens and their elected representatives who must answer to the people.

Trump Proves That Pelosi & Four Progressive Radicals Aren’t Fighting Each Other, But Fighting for Each Other

There is absolutely no difference between most Democrat members and the four radical so-called freshmen

It’s now Monday and most of the media are yip-yipping away, harping on about how the president told four of House Speaker Pelosi’s “progressive” freshman members to go back to their countries of origin to fix the corruption plaguing those nations before they lecture the United States.

Other than flagrantly showing themselves disloyal to the Republic, it makes puny difference that three of the four radical progressives were born in the U.S.-because as anti-American radical activists they put their mother countries first even after being sworn in to defend America and even though the pay checks they cash are 100% American.

“Somebody that comes from Somalia, which is a failed government, a failed state, who left Somalia and ultimately came here and now is a congresswoman, is never happy,” President Trump said in a planned “Made in America” event. She “says horrible things about Israel, hates Israel, hates Jews, hates Jews, it’s very simple.”

“If the Democrats want to wrap their bows around this group of four people — one of them kept Amazon out of New York, tens of thousands of jobs. Would have been a great thing and she kept Amazon from going,” the president continued. “Tens of thousands of jobs and New York has not been the same since that happened.”

What’s the Deal With the Bizarre Temple-Like Structure on Jeffrey Epstein’s Private Island?

The latest buzz about the Jeffrey Epstein child sex-trafficking case regards a temple-like structure on his private island — an island he calls “Little St. Jeff’s,” but one St. Thomas locals called “Pedophile Island” or “Orgy Island.” It is on this 72-acre island that Epstein allegedly ferried in young women on a boat named the “Lady Ghislaine.” Epstein’s friend and former partner, Ghislaine Maxwell, is a British socialite who has been accused of acting as Epstein’s madam.

There have been varying explanations for the blue-striped “temple.” While the Associated Press account of it was benign, INSIDER’s story about it turned up something that is potentially nefarious.

The AP, citing workers, said that the building may have functioned as a glorified and grandiose music room, complete with a grand piano and “acoustic walls.” It’s been said that Epstein is classically trained. But the INSIDER account is raising eyebrows because an engineer and contractor named James Both commented that the wooden door of the structure appeared to be designed to keep people in, rather than keeping people out.

That and a second structure or apparent door down the hill have given rise to the thought that, perhaps, the temple served a very different purpose.

The Post Millennial reached out to Shepherd who said, “I got suspended for two tweets (although they didn’t tell me exactly which tweets were the problem so I am giving my best guess): last night, JY tweeted that I have a loose vagina from pushing a 10 pound baby out, but he still has a “tight pussy” (in reality, JY still has male genitalia according to the proceedings of the current human rights tribunals he’s been testifying in; and in reality I had a C-section and a 6 pound 10 oz baby).”

British Muslim Family Forced Daughter to Marry Cousin to Stop Her From Getting ‘Too Western’

As the woman herself has explained, the decision to marry her cousin was forced upon her by her family when they all were on vacation in Pakistan back when she was 17.

Nyla Khan, a 30-year-old British woman who was born and raised in Scotland, has recently revealed how about 13 years ago she was forced to marry her cousin in Pakistan because her family thought she was getting “out of control”.

During an interview with BBC Scotland, Nyla revealed that even though she knew from a young age that she was “promised” to marry her cousin, back then she felt stunned when her family went through with that scheme as they were “paranoid” about her possibly becoming “too Western”.

Leaked U.K. diplomatic cables critical of President Trump have led Britain’s ambassador, Sir Kim Darroch, to announce his departure from Washington earlier than expected. But the story is not yet concluded.

According to one current and one former U.S. government official speaking on the condition of anonymity, Darroch repeatedly leaked classified U.S. intelligence information, including highly classified information, to a journalist for a U.S.-based media outlet. The sources are consolidated by the reaction my related inquiries have received from other government officials.

These leaks are unrelated to the diplomatic cables which sparked Trump’s anger and Darroch’s departure.

Social Engineering? Top British Soap Opera Features Storyline About Man Converting to Islam to Find “Peace”

Taxpayer-funded BBC has inserted a storyline into its most popular soap opera about a man who after leaving prison converts to Islam to find “peace”.

“EastEnders’ Bobby Beale (Clay Milner Russell) will explore the Islamic faith as he adapts to life on the outside after being jailed for murdering his sister — and the soap is working closely with the Muslim Youth Helpline to portray the positive impact of religion on the troubled teenager,” reports the Radio Times.

In the storyline, Beale was imprisoned for killing his sister but “starts to make peace with his violent past” after being given a copy of a Koran by a Muslim friend.

Zohra Khaku, Director of the Muslim Youth Helpline, said the plot was an opportunity to portray Islam “as a positive influence”…

In reality, the situation is diametrically opposed to that depicted in the storyline.

Islamic radicalization in British prisons is a huge problem, with many leaving jail as extremists having been groomed by hate preachers.

A report by the Independent last year described how “British prisons became a breeding ground for Islamist extremism”.

“We are seeing a great experiment take place where we’ve got more extremists behind bars than ever before, they’re often on pretty short sentences and no one knows what is the most effective way of managing them,” said Rajan Basra, a research fellow at the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR) at King’s College London.

While Islam is being portrayed as the “peaceful” option, another UK soap opera, Hollyoaks, recently featured a plot, developed in coordination with the British government, where a character was radicalized by a dangerous right-wing extremist group.

Tommy Robinson and the Death of Britain

[…]

But Britain is not a sane society today, and these sinister individuals — Lowles, Mughal, and the rest of them — continue to wield their considerable power and influence in British society. If Britain is ever to recover itself and stave off chaos, civil war and Sharia, Lowles, Collins, Mughal and others like them must be decisively repudiated and removed from all positions of influence, and their organizations exposed for what they are.

Instead, Tommy Robinson is back to jail, with a sentence that could be a death sentence at the hands of Muslim inmates who threatened and menaced him when he was in prison before.

The British government is clearly making an example of him in order to try to deter more Britons from protesting against its policies of mass Muslim immigration and its covering up of crimes perpetrated by Muslims in the name of Islam and in accord with its teachings. This conviction and sentencing shows not Tommy Robinson’s contempt of court, but the contempt of the British government for its own citizens, and particularly for the victims of Muslim rape gangs.

Britain has become a shabby little police state in which it is illegal to criticize Islam and mass Muslim migration in Britain today. Its death as a free society is by its own hand.

Warmists Red-Faced as Satellite Image Analyses Show Globe Has Greened Markedly Over Past 4 Decades

[…]

German climate science skeptic Michael Kruger of Science Skeptical here writes that the earth has become GREENER and more fertile due to more CO2 and warming.

Hard to believe, but the earth is not turning into a desert and more arid due to the CO2 increase in the atmosphere, like alarmist scientists and media like us to believe it is, but rather it is becoming greener and more fertile.

This is what scientists have found through the analysis of satellite data over the last four decades.

A study published in 2016 in Nature Climate Change proves that the earth has become considerably greener over the past decades.

For their study, the researchers led by Zaichun Zhu evaluated vegetation data recorded by three satellites between 1982 and 2009. The evaluation showed that since 1982, the plant world has become more luxuriant and thus greener on a large part of terrestrial land surfaces.

Area “twice the size of the USA”

“The biggest greening trends can be seen in the southeast of North America, in the northern Amazon region, in Europe, Central Africa and Southeast Asia,” said Zhu and his colleagues. “This greening, which we have observed, is comparable in scale to an additional green continent twice the size of the USA,” says Zhu.

To find out exactly what is responsible for this increase in plant material, the scientists fed ten global ecosystem models with data on greenhouse gas emissions, land use and the development of climate factors such as temperature and precipitation. The result: 70% of the earth’s greening is due to the fertilizing effect of rising CO2 levels and 30% to climatic effects and other effects such as climate change, nitrogen deposition and changes in land cover.

Why Eastern Europeans Fear Islam: The Siege of Vienna, 1683

“Austria acts against Muslims almost every day because of their subconscious fear of Turks,” writes Turkish historian Erhan Afyoncu in the Daily Sabah. “Austrians have not forgotten the fear and their emperor’s escape in the Battle of Vienna in 1683. When Turks were defeated in the Battle of Vienna, Europeans were so happy.”

Because this is true, a brief refresher of the Siege of Vienna is in order, particularly as its anniversary is right around now:

Around July 15, 1683, the largest Islamic army ever to invade European territory — which is saying much considering that countless invasions preceded it since the eighth century — came and surrounded Vienna, then the heart of the Holy Roman Empire and longtime nemesis of Islam.

Some 200,000 Muslim combatants, under the leadership of the Ottomans — the one state in nearly fourteen centuries of Islamic history most dedicated to and founded on the principles of jihad — invaded under the same rationale that so-called “radical” groups, such as the Islamic State, cite to justify their jihad on “infidels.” Or, to quote the leader of the Muslim expedition, Grand Vizier Kara Mustafa, because Vienna was perceived as the head of the infidel snake, it needed to be laid low so that “all the Christians would obey the Ottomans.”

This was no idle boast; sources describe this Mustafa as “fanatically anti-Christian.” After capturing a Polish town in 1674 he ordered all the Christian prisoners to be skinned alive and their stuffed hides sent as trophies to Ottoman Sultan Muhammad IV. Such supremacist hate was standard and on display during the elaborate pre-jihad ceremony presaging the siege of Vienna. Then, the sultan, “desiring him [Mustafa] to fight generously for the Mahometan faith,” to quote a contemporary European source, placed “the standard of the Prophet. into his hands for the extirpation of infidels, and the increase of Muslemen.”

Once the massive Muslim army reached and surrounded the walls of Vienna around July 15, Mustafa followed protocol.

China’s GDP for the second quarter grew at its slowest rate since the global financial crisis in 2008, 6.2%.

This weak print is the result of a combination of factors — China’s trade war with the US, deleveraging, and structural weakness in China’s banking system.

And while some economic data started trending more positively in June, the weak GDP print is a sign that policymakers will soon have to be more aggressive about stabilizing the economy.

Facebook Embeds Tracking Codes in Photos to Collect More of Your Data

An Australian cyber researcher alleges that social media giant Facebook embeds tracking codes in monitor who sees and shares your photos.

Forbes reports that Australian cyber researcher Edin Jusupovic recently claimed on Twitter that Facebook is embedding “hidden codes” in photos that users upload to the site to track how many people see and share the photos.

“Facebook is embedding tracking data inside photos you download,” Jusupovic stated on Twitter adding that he had “noticed a structural abnormality when looking at a hex dump of an image file from an unknown origin only to discover it contained what I now understand is an IPTC special instruction.”

Jusupovic stated that this was a “shocking level of tracking,” adding that “the take from this is that they can potentially track photos outside of their own platform with a disturbing level of precision about who originally uploaded the photo (and much more).”

British Schools Need Close to a Half a Million Extra Spots Thanks to Large Migrant Baby Boom

Schools in the U.K. will somehow need to find around 420,000 extra school places over the next ten years, thanks — at least in part — to a large baby boom among migrant mothers.

The Department of Education’s newest projections suggest that although “Direct immigration of pupils born outside the U.K. has a very small effect on the school-age population” in comparison to the birth rate, the birth rate “is in turn affected by any increase in the number of children born to non-U.K. born women (who overall tend to have higher fertility rates).”

Open Borders Advocates Are Using Changing Narratives With Impunity, Says Expert

[…]

“Continuing to send the message that there are no rules and there are no limits … that is the biggest magnet one can possibly set out. It tells people you come and you’re here. There’s no consequences to your behavior,” MacDonald said.

“That open borders philosophy leads to this flood of people that is simply beyond the capacity of a government—no matter with how much goodwill—to respond. And, at some point, there is a limit to how many resources should be diverted from other uses in the United States to serve as the first jumping-off point to this flood of migration.”

Mac Donald said the talk of decriminalizing illegal border entry is part of an agenda to “break down any impediment for mass, low-skilled immigration from south of the border. And to say that any attempts to enforce immigration laws is somehow fascist.”

She believes the left has a desire for massive demographic change in the United States, brought forth by an identity politics position that postulates that a certain demographic profile oppresses everybody else.

“I think they really think that a predominant sort of European-based civilization in America is unacceptable, that it’s the source of all oppression in the world—which is, of course, an absurdity. And they want to change that culture, and that civilization, and that demographic reality,” she said.

Low-skilled immigrants also tend to vote Democrat, she said.

“They tend to back big government, big welfare programs, and higher taxes … a plus for the Democratic Party,” she said.

“I just think it’s a political war. If the Democrats take the White House in 2020 and they’re true to their word, they’re going to open the immigration system even further.”

Terrorist Who Firebombed ICE Facility Wrote in Manifesto: “I Am Antifa”

The terrorist who firebombed an ICE facility in Washington State yesterday released a manifesto before the attack stating, “I am Antifa” and said the attack was motivated by his opposition to “concentration camps” in the U.S.

According to his manifesto, a copy of which was obtained by Jack Posobiec, Van Spronsen was armed with an AR-15 and stated, “I am Antifa”.

The rest of the manifesto is a rambling advocacy of identity politics mixed with hysteria about “concentration camps,” which clearly suggests that Van Spronsen was radicalized by fringe rhetoric from the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

At one point in the manifesto, Van Spronsen thanks his “trans comrades” and explains that he was armed with a semi-automatic weapon, suggesting he clearly planned to commit a massacre.

The Antifa gun club that Van Spronsen attended also locked its Twitter account down following the revelations.

Trump Announces New Asylum Rules to End Protections to Central American Migrant Invasion (Video)

The AP reported:

According to a new rule published in the Federal Register , asylum seekers who pass through another country first will be ineligible for asylum at the U.S. southern border. The rule, expected to go into effect Tuesday, also applies to children who have crossed the border alone.

There are some exceptions: If someone has been trafficked, if the country the migrant passed through did not sign one of the major international treaties that govern how refugees are managed (though most Western countries have signed them) or if an asylum-seeker sought protection in a country but was denied, then a migrant could still apply for U.S. asylum.

Ken Cuccinelli from US Citizenship and Immigration Services joined America’s Newsroom to discuss the new rules.

The asylum seekers will be forced to apply in first country they enter instead of the US.

They will have to be rejected by their first country before they can apply in the United States.

Head of Russian Parliament Claims Allowing Same-Sex Adoption Will Lead to “Extinction of Humanity”

Says foundation of family unit being eroded

The head of Russia’s upper house of parliament claims that allowing gay couples to adopt children will lead to the “extinction of humanity”.

Russia banned the ability of gay couples to adopt children in 2013.

“What will allowing same-sex couples to adopt children lead to? It’ll simply lead to the extinction of mankind,” Valentina Matvienko, the head of the upper-house Federation Council, told a government-sponsored youth forum outside Moscow earlier today.

“There are basic ingredients for happiness, I believe they’re universal: family, children and parents. We see how these foundations are being eroded,” she added.

The comments are markedly different from the west’s approach to same sex adoption, where it is legal in most countries.

University Investigates Feminist Grad Student for Daring to Say That Men Can’t Become Women

University of California-Santa Barbara doctoral students, alumni and “allies” are demanding the administration take action against Laura Tanner, an outspoken critic of transgender ideology and doctoral candidate in its Department of Feminist Studies.

Tanner’s Twitter feed is dominated by discussion of transgender ideology’s threat to women, including young lesbians. She believes that transgender women — biological males — are wrongly appropriating a female identity.

Her header image bluntly declares: “A woman is someone with a female body and any personality . not a ‘female personality’ and any body. Any other definition is sexism.” School newspaper The Daily Nexus reprinted several of her tweets that it considered “transphobic.”

Scientists Find Antarctica is Rapidly Cooling and Any Ice Sheet Melt is Not Due to CO2, But Natural

Natural variability rules in Antarctica. Scientists identify clouds, wind, and localized solar heating — not CO2 — as the factors driving ice melt. Rising CO2 leads to Antarctic cooling.

In a review of the scientific literature, Lüning et al. 2019 report Antarctica as a whole has undergone a cooling trend in recent decades.

The Antarctic Peninsula has cooled at a rate of —0.5°C per decade since the late 1990s.

West Antarctica as a whole has “slightly cooled” (or the warming has “plateaued”) over the past two decades.

East Antarctica “has not experienced any significant temperature change since the 1950s” with ice sheet mass gains and cooling during the past 15 years.

Rising CO2 leads to Antarctic cooling

Antarctica contains about 90% of the world’s ice.

Because the continent averages —28.2°C in summer and —60°C in winter, inducing even partial retreat for an ice sheet that averages 2.3 kilometers in height would require a substantial amount of heat energy.

This effectively rules out a human influence.

  1. Congresschick – is it because Cortez is a female, a chick sitting in Congress, or is it because she is with Congress like in the word “apparatchik”? Okay, seems I’ve answered my own question.

    • That’s a kind, lovely thing to write to someone recently bereaved. I know who’s the (orifice) here, and it isn’t the Baron.

      Shame I don’t believe in Hell; you’d be a prime candidate for inclusion.

    • PS I didn’t make myself clear enough. You are either a) [ad hominem redacted], or b) seriously [ad hominem redacted] and need help (if only for the sake of decent humans). Shame, shame on you.

  2. What good justice in Canada!

    The Ontario Court of Appeal allowed the man who attacked the soldiers at the Toronto Recruitment Center to attend the college on their own.

    In March 2016, Ayanl Hassan Ali attacked several soldiers with a knife and injured at least two people. He was accused of attempted murder, bodily harm and armed attack, as well as support for a terrorist group.

    Last year, the Ontario court ruled that Ali launched an attack based on his extremist beliefs. However, these beliefs, as decided by the judge, were caused by a mental disorder.

    The judge also concluded that Ali did not act on behalf of the terrorist group. As a result, criminal responsibility was removed from it. Now Ali is in a hospital in Hamilton. He is forbidden to attend military establishments.

    Last year, he asked for permission to attend Mohawk College (he is near the hospital) without being accompanied. On July 15, the appeals court resolved this, but only when doctors consider it possible.

  3. A black female Bond! It’s just too much nonsence-Ian Flemming wrote James Bond as male scottish naval officer-he did not write a story of a Miss Bond who is of African origin-why is it that such strenuous efforts are being made to support the extremes of Multiculturalism, which really fools no one ?

      • Well, such a multiculti 007 would certainly be inconspicuous in Londonistan.

        As if a Politically Correct Bondette will go after anything but moneyed White interests. Terrorists? It’s for the little people (i.e., Ariana Grande fans) to look after themselves.

        There’s a war of political identity and no Whiteys are going to get in the way of that Narrative.™

    • Looking forward to the remake of Zulu with a cast
      Of tens of thousands of white Zulu warriors and
      A small garrison of black Welsh Soldiers!

      Ridiculous!

      NO MORE RIDICULOUS THAN A BLACK FEMALE
      JAMES BOND I WOULD POSIT.

    • If Ian Flemming has an estate, I think they should sue. It is a deliberate attempt to destroy culture. It could be labeled “cultural appropriation”.

        Hear! Hear! I’ll drink a stirred, not shaken, Smirnoff Martini to that!

        Mind you, I prefer mine so dry that you fart dust. Towards that end, any vermouth must be kept under lock and key in a separate room.

        Having collected every Bond novel from Casino Royale onward, my own take on 007’s immortal cocktail order is that Bond may be stirred, but his (other) nerve (… endings) remains unshaken.

        My personal favorite is the ‘Smokey Martini’. To wit:

        (Hat tip: Pezzella’s Villa Napoli – Sunnyvale, CA)

        — Smokey Martini —

        • Chill a heavy glass well ahead of time
        • Use ice so dry and cold that it sticks to your fingers
        • Pour a thimbleful of good whisky into the glass then swirl
        • Fill a chilled shaker with fresh ice
        • Pour 2-3 jiggers of fine gin or vodka into a chilled shaker
        • Employ preferred method of agitation
        • Swirl again and dump whisky from chilled glass (Cheers!)
        • Strain Martini into glass
        • Add lemon peel* or olive
        • Consume amidst much lip smacking
        • Rinse and repeat

        * – Any citrus rind (e.g., Meyers lemon, Key lime, yuzu or yuja, blood orange, citron, kalamansi, etc.) should be shaved off with a new vegetable peeler in order to obtain semi-translucent strips which are devoid of all pith. Squeeze over the filled glass to capture all oils. –

        Recommended:

        Vodka —

        The Canadian brand Pearl, which is quintuple distilled from Albertan hard red winter wheat and uses water from the Rockies.

        Gin —

        Only the Scottish brand, Hendrick’s (whose ultra-traditional botanicals also include upstart Bulgarian rose and cucumber) has the crystalline top notes and baby butt smoothness to prevent any interference with this silkily potent potable.

        Why don’t you get out of those wet clothes and into a dry Martini.

        • A bit late to jump in here, NR (not just days, but decades!)

          In the original novels, Bond had served as a Navy/special forces diver in WW2 (hence “Commander” Bond), so by the first book (“Casino Royale”, c1950) he would have been 25-30. The character was partly based on a Serbian agent, fond of the good things in life, who tried to warn the Americans of the imminent Pearl Harbor attack but was ignored, and partly on the author Ian Fleming’s projection of himself (he served in intelligence in, if I recall correctly, the Caribbean).

          The early films with Connery stuck quite closely to the novels, albeit set 10-15 years later, but the gadgets increasingly took over. My ideal (not that I’d live to see it completed) would be to start again with “Casino Royale”, set c1949, and with an actor of 25 or so, and do them all, with him, over 15-20 years; backgrounds that have changed could easily be recreated digitally.

          Having said which, Daniel Craig is probably the best Bond ever on film!

    • Please read a similar story of mine with conclusion:
      When I was a teenager, we were out for a 5-day camping and we reached a similar scene. Someone had slaughtered animals and left the remaining inside the water. Rotten meat and blood in a narrow stream. Our flasks were filled in the downstream and we all had drunk that water. You can guess how we felt.

      In the old days, when this place was not conquered by Islamic barbarians, contaminating waters like that was a heinous crime. Well, in fact according to the old book of law, Vandiāt, chapter 7, article 25 and 26, throwing corpse in waters was punished by death. No way around it. Maybe too harsh of a punishment, but that’s how it once was. My grandmother used to take water from streams with bowl if she wanted to wash her face or feet, just to avoid returning the contaminated water to the river. Part of an old teaching that is lost today.

      Nothing but regret when I think about things like this. Islam is nothing but barbarianism. It’s ideology circles around killing, plundering and sharing the spoils with imams. It contains no education. It’s no religion at all. For me, it’s hard to say violence of the Hindus in your story was justified. But at the same time I have no idea how one can go along with Muslims. They are so self-asserting with mentality of superiority that makes dialogue impossible. Muslims beg for violence, because they do not offer any peaceful method to cope with them.

      • This is a very visual story. In ancient times, a flawless set of rules was developed for the existence of people on this planet.

        • In ancient times, a flawless set of rules was developed for the existence of people on this planet.

          Rules which, for the most part, are like the code of Bushido and largely had the same default penalty: Death.

          Imagine modern Japan’s pacifistic disgust at its own traditions. Alas, for simpler times.

      • Thanks Baron, good to know. However, I was glad to see that Front Page had an article about this important event. It’s always good to be reminded of history or else we are doomed to repeat it.

        I hope things are getting better- one day at a time.

        Please know that you are in our prayers.
