It's Not Moscow Mitch Who Is Preventing A Debate And Vote On Medicare-For-All... It's Pelosi

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 16 hours ago
Pelosi's designated heir, Hakeem Jeffries of New York, was the last person to co-sponsor Pramila Jayapal's Medicare for All legislation (H.R. 1384). He was number 118 on the list of co-sponsors. That's over half the Democrats in the House for a bill that was introduced on February 27, 2019. Pelosi quickly farmed it out to a bunch of committees, some of which are chaired by hostile and corrupt anti-healthcare conservatives, namely the first two on the list: *•* Energy and Commerce- Frank Pallone *•* Ways and Means- Richard Neal *•* Education and Labor- Bobby Scott *•* Rules- Jim Mc... more »

CoyotePrime at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 16 hours ago
*"The New Mystery Virus In China Is ‘Adapting And Mutating’* * And No Known Drug Works Against It'* by Michael Snyder "Global health officials are racing to contain the outbreak of a mysterious new coronavirus before it starts spreading wildly out of control all over the planet. Unfortunately, they may already be too late. The virus has now spread to at least seven other countries outside of China, and a whole lot of people are starting to panic.

A Guide To Help You Achieve Happiness

Natalie Porter at Enlightened Consciousness - 16 hours ago
People are under the impression that what happens in their lives is out of their control. You cannot sit around waiting to see what life dishes out. People that wait around usually have minimal goals and hope that life will be kind to them. “Being happy is something that each of us determines, it is not something that we find outside of ourself, it is within us and our choice.” – Catherine Pulsifer Life is full of opportunities. You should set goals and learn all that you can from your journey along the way. This way, you should achieve success. Not all lessons are easy. However, ... more »


jonjayray at EDUCATION WATCH INTERNATIONAL - 16 hours ago
*NC: Turning Against Scholarship at Wake Forest * Nan Miller I love Wake Forest. I was there before the ban on drinking and dancing was lifted but there during an era when supplying freshmen with free samples of Winston and Salem cigarettes was standard practice. When friends at other schools asked how I liked being deprived on the one hand and ensnared on the other, I confided that I’d become an artful dodger of certain rules — including what felt like the requirement to smoke. It was only later that I saw what an advantage I’d had as an undergraduate at Wake Forest. By the en... more »

*Green? 50,000 Tons Of Non-Recyclable Wind Turbine Blades Dumped In The Landfill* Funny, no one seemed to consider what to do with the massive amount of wind turbine blades once they reached the end of their lifespan. Thus, the irony of the present-day Green Energy Movement is the dumping of thousands of tons of “non-recyclable” supposedly renewable wind turbine blades in the country’s landfills. Who would have thought? What’s even worse, is that the amount of wind turbine blades slated for waste disposal is forecasted to quadruple over the next fifteen years as a great deal mor... more »

From Australia to California, wildfires are a Big Brother problem

Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man - 16 hours ago
An article about the current wildfire crisis in Australia brought back echoes of recent comments about the same issue in the USA. It is very obvious who the people are who should be held accountable for the current mess. At the top of the list are the premiers and ministers responsible for land management, such as it is, and bushfire policy, and the public servants in their departments with jurisdiction over forests and national parks. State governments in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria have palpably failed to do the most important job they were elected to do: protect the... more »

Has reproducibility improved? Introducing the Transparency and Rigor Index

Anita Bandrowski at Retraction Watch - 16 hours ago
Some Retraction Watch readers may recall that back in 2012, we called, in The Scientist, for the creation of a Transparency Index.

*Salvatore Babones* *Security, Asia* Expert: "In addition to WeChat, apps like Alibaba's Tmall ("China's Amazon"), DiDi ("China's Uber"), TikTok (video sharing), and Alipay (electronic payments) are all forms of online netware, a loose category of social technologies that make money by leveraging the size of their networks.

Sailing These Russian Nuclear Submarines Was Basically A Suicide Mission

Sebastien Roblin at The National Interest - 16 hours ago
*Sebastien Roblin* *Security, Eurasia* Safety was sacrificed for the sake of performance. *Key Point:* The November-class submarined expanded Soviet influence, but at a cost. The United States launched the first nuclear-powered submarine, the USS* Nautilus*, in 1954, revolutionizing undersea warfare. The *Nautilus*’s reactor allowed it operate underwater for months at a time, compared to the hours or days afforded conventional submarines. The following year, the Soviet Union began building its own nuclear submarine, the Project 627—known as the *November *class by NATO. The resu... more »

REUTERS/Bobby Yip] It's a shadowy tool of Beijing's reach. *Key Point:* This conclusive exposure of PAFMM activities in the East China Sea should be an important reminder to policy-makers in Tokyo and Washington alike that Beijing is certain to continue to wield its third sea force as a tool of choice to probe and apply pressure vis-à-vis the Japanese-administered Senkaku Islands.

Sweden's Plan To Build This Nuclear Submarine Would Have Been A Costly Disaster

Robert Beckhusen at The National Interest - 16 hours ago
*Robert Beckhusen* *Security, Europe* Good thing it didn't happen. *Key point:* There are many places along the Swedish coast for stealthy submarines to hide... In terms of modern diesel-electric submarines, it’s hard to beat Sweden. In 2005, one of them — the 200-foot-long HMS Gotland — sneaked up and virtually destroyed the American Nimitz-class carrier USS Ronald Reagan in a simulated war game. That was due in part to the ultra-quiet Stirling engines that power the Gotland. The Swedish navy, while small, has long reserved funds for submarines given its location and the likel... more »

The Real Cause of World War II Was the Allies Deception of Germany with the 1918 Armistice and the Subsequent Versailles Treaty

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 18 hours ago
From the very signing most competent observers understood that the treaty guaranteed a second war. The tragedy is that it was undone by Hitler. History has plenty of bad deals undone in good order. so that was never an impossible option. In fact it was largely accomplished with the ejection of the French from the Rhineland in the mid thirties. An assertive competent government would have done as much then as all the flaws of the treaty were then obvious and that it crippled everyone including the so called winners. Churchill was one of the key promoters of British intervent... more »

*Michael Peck* *Security, Asia* [image:] It shouldn't repeat it with China. *Key Point:* The lesson is don't overestimate your opponent. Back in the 1980s, a war with the Soviet Union seemed like a naval nightmare. Fiction writers like Tom Clancy and John Hackett painted a future where Western navies faced hordes of Red bombers, cruise missiles, submarines and surface warships. Naturally, in these novels the Good Guys won, but only at tremendous cost. In hindsight, some of this looks silly. We ... more »

Why The United States Needs To Hurry And Upgrade the F-15

Kris Osborn at The National Interest - 20 hours ago
*Kris Osborn* *Security, * [image:] Russia. *Key Point:* The United States needs to get ahead on electronic warfare. The Pentagon’s soon-to-be published Electronic Warfare strategy calls for increased investment in advanced electronic warfare technology designed to defend U.S. assets and proactively use the electromagnetic spectrum to attack enemies.

Russia's Navy Is Having A Submarine Problem (And There Is No Easy Solution)

Robert Beckhusen at The National Interest - 20 hours ago
*Robert Beckhusen* *Security, Europe* While the Yasens probably have the ability to launch cruise missiles as well, that would still leave Russia with around 10 modern nuclear-powered SSNs and dedicated SSGNs alongside two-dozen boats in their thirties and forties facing looming retirement. *Key point:* Russia’s ballistic missile submarines will be in somewhat better shape in 2030. In March 2017, Russia’s new *Yasen*-class nuclear attack submarine *Kazan *launched at the northern port city of Severodvinsk. Perhaps the quietest Russian submarine ever, the event was further eviden... more »

The Sneaky Way Russia Is Increasing Its Military Power

James Mugg at The National Interest - 20 hours ago
*James Mugg* *Security, * [image:] Just like the USSR before them. *Key Point:* Russia doesn't have to build new toys to modernize the ones they already have. In a *recent article for The Strategist*, I showed how Russia’s economic woes are negatively affecting plans to modernize the country’s military. In order to be thrifty, Moscow has, for the most part, been investing in modernized or upgraded versions of existing platforms, rather than waiting for altogether new platforms like the Armata... more »

Stealth Wins: Why The F-22 Is Able To Fly Without Worry

Kris Osborn at The National Interest - 20 hours ago
*Kris Osborn* *Security, * [image:] But does it have a fatal flaw? *Key Point:* The F-22's superiority is computer-based, making it open to being disabled. The Air Force is working closely with industry partners to strengthen cybersecurity for larger service platforms such as an F-22 or F-35 fighters. “We have to understand that today’s weapons systems are not operating in isolation. They are operating as part of a netted enterprise. Each weapons system will interface with a broader DOD netw... more »

1917 (movie review)

LL at Virtual Mirage - 20 hours ago
During World War I, two British soldiers -- Lance Cpl. Schofield and Lance Cpl. Blake -- receive seemingly impossible orders. In a race against time, they must cross over into enemy territory to deliver a message that could potentially save 1,600 of their fellow comrades -- including Blake's own brother. ________ The War-to-end-all-Wars has been going on for three years. One year previously, in July-November 1916, there were one million casualties at the Battle of the Somme. The British lost 57,000 on the first day of the offensive. Total Casualties topped 1 million, including the... more »

Feminism Is Perverting The Rule Of Law In Britain (Part 2)

If convicting innocent men of rape is not bad enough, exculpating women convicted of murder on compelling evidence is no better if not worse, yet that is the mission of the misnamed Centre For Women’s Justice.

Feminism Is Perverting The Rule Of Law In Britain (Part 1)

TheDarkMan at The Duran - 20 hours ago
Almost all Western politicians pay at least lip service to feminist ideology because few if any recognise its toxicity. In Britain especially, the insane dogma of feminism has had a pernicious influence on both social policy and the law. And it continues to do so. An in-depth discussion of this matter would take us far […] More The post Feminism Is Perverting The Rule Of Law In Britain (Part 1) appeared first on The Duran.

A Reasonable (and Vital) Point of Order

Gerard N. Magliocca at Balkinization - 20 hours ago
Sometime today or this week, a Senator should raise a point of order asking the Chief Justice if he thinks that he can break a tie vote during the impeachment trial. This point of order would be entirely appropriate, as the question speaks directly to his role as the presiding officer. There are two reasons why this question should be posed now. First, the Senate and the Chief Justice would be better off knowing the answer before there is a tie vote. Then they can both think through that issue without knowing what the specific application might be. The Senate, for example, could di... more »
