Nolte: Advertising Karma Hits Corporate Media and the New York Times Calls for Bailout Look at how much the Washington Post has collapsed into a smoldering pile of fake news upon the arrival of its sugar daddy, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos… Look at the destruction far-left CNN has wrought, not only to its own shattered ratings and reputation but in places like Baltimore and Ferguson, because it’s paid through a rigged cable TV system as opposed to having to court viewers.
Revolutionary aside But the bubonic plague, as noticed in London, returned in much the same form, seventeen times between 1348 and 1666. It had already visited Europe in the time of Justinian, and returned frequently between 541 and 750 AD, each time carrying away thousands and millions of those late Byzantine-Romans, and bystanders throughout and beyond the Mediterranean. We still have no vaccine, incidentally; and it is still not dead. Only Communism can approach the aggregate body count.
How the Man Who Invented Xbox Baked a 4,500-Year-Old Egyptian Sourdough Blackley’s weekend sourdough was the culmination of a year-long passion project that produced a loaf of bread not eaten for millenia. By extracting 4,500-year-old dormant yeast samples from ancient Egyptian baking vessels and reviving them in his home kitchen, Blackley and his collaborators quite literally brought history to life, and ate it.
Maverick Philosopher: Why No Talk of the EMP Threat? ‘Sheltering at home’ is no big deal with a functioning grid and all that it makes possible such as working at home and ordering goods and services online. Would it be ‘racist’ of me to suggest that the Chinese might want to destroy our gird with an electromagnetic pulse attack?
The implausibility of a war with China | Armed and Dangerous The PRC leadership is evil and ruthless, but it’s also cautious and historically literate and can read maps. Accordingly, the People’s Liberation Army is designed not to take territory but to hold the territory the PRC already has. Its mission is not conquest but the suppression of regional warlordism inside China itself. The capability for it to wage serious expeditionary warfare doesn’t exist, and can’t be built in the near-term future…
Are you spaced correctly? : On a walk I took yesterday (you still can’t be arrested for that in Ontario) I passed the nearest licker store (or, “liquor” as some people spell it). The line to get in was spaced, I estimate, at one Roman pace between persons. (That’s five Imperial feet.) Two policemen rode by on bicycles. The more garrulous of the pair saluted this single file, congratulating its members for, “Good spacing!” This is what it has come to, I thought. He spoke as if they were kindergarten pupils, waiting patiently for their licker in the approved way.
San Francisco Reverses Single-Use Plastic Bag Ban California has been obsessed with the environment for a long time. Gov. Gavin Newsom banned “hotels from using small single-use plastic containers for shampoo and other toiletries.” State lawmakers hope they can ban all single-use plastic by 2030.
Fact check: Did Obama administration deplete N95 mask stockpile? Our rating: True. We rate this claim TRUE because it is supported by our research. There is no indication that the Obama administration took significant steps to replenish the Strategic National Stockpile after it was depleted from repeated crises during Obama’s tenure. Calls for action came from experts at the time concerned for the country’s ability to respond to future serious pandemics. Such recommendations were, for whatever reason, not heeded.
Serious thought: I wonder if professors of gender/grievance studies are quaking in their boots as any sort of relevance they had in the world slowly slips away because we’re dealing with actual problems, instead of the made-up ones they’ve been pushing on us.

A Man In New York Was Allegedly Hoarding And Selling Scarce Coronavirus Supplies At Extreme Prices In one case, Feldheim sold a doctor from New Jersey about 1,000 N95 masks, 2,000 sterile gowns, hundreds of hazmat gowns, and other materials for $12,000 — a 700% markup from the typical price, officials said. The doctor got into contact with Feldheim in a WhatsApp group for health care professionals. When he went to a repair shop in Irvington, New Jersey, to pick up his orders on at least two occasions, the doctor said he saw “pallets” of critical supplies. “According to the doctor, the repair shop contained enough materials, including hand sanitizers, Clorox wipes, chemical cleaning supply agents, and surgical supplies, to outfit an entire hospital,” prosecutors said.
A dive into the most popular, wildest conspiracies surrounding the Denver International Airport If there are no lizard people, are there at least aliens? “There are no aliens,” Renteria said. “This isn’t a place where aliens can land their ship. I guess that’s what we call them. No, unfortunately. I feel like that would be against FAA regulations for anything to land beside aircraft.” And how about the Illuminati, the world’s elites? Will members bunker in the tunnels during an apocalypse?
A Large Regular: Top 5 – Changes We’ll See After the Wuhan Virus Globalism and any cause that relies on political correctness shaming will lose vast support. People have had a glimpse of what’s behind the curtain and they didn’t like what they saw. Little to no patience going forward for people who believe they have their own “truths” that need to be listened to. People who think they can “shame” others because their beliefs differ are going to become the new pariahs as it is made clear that these folks really have nothing positive to add to society.
REBELLION: ‘This Is Not Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia Where You Are Asked For Your Papers!’ Says Maine Sheriff | “We will not be setting up a Police State. PERIOD,” he wrote. “The Sheriff’s Office will not purposefully go out and stop vehicles because they are on the road or stop and ask why people are out and about. To do so puts our officers at risk. This is not Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia where you are asked for your papers!”
