Supreme Court Needs to End Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
Post Date: 2023-10-12 00:08:10 by Charles_Byrd
On October 10, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a case of interest and significance to politicians and people alike: the case of Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) v. Community Financial Services Association of America. At the heart of the matter lies a narrow, yet critical question, one that strikes at the very foundation of our constitutional order: Is the CFPBs peculiar and historically unprecedented practice of simply sending demand letters to the Federal Reserve a violation of the appropriations clause? In this pivotal debate, progressive judges seem to pivot away from the black letter of our Constitution, leaning instead toward statistics to justify this ...
New Study Claims Much of Eastern U.S. Will Become Dangerously Hot Soon
Post Date: 2023-10-12 00:06:49 by Charles_Byrd
According to a brand-new study published by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences this week, large portions of the most densely populated parts of the planet, including much of the eastern and central United States, may be rendered uninhabitable or nearly so within a few decades, as a consequence of anthropogenic global warming projected through the year 2100. Reckoning in terms of so-called wet-bulb temperatures a measure of temperature in terms of the human bodys capacity to thermoregulate as little as a 1.5° Celsius rise in average global temperatures would result in significant temperature increases in parts of Sub-Saharan Africa, the Indian ...
'Good Government' Is a Two-Way Street
Post Date: 2023-10-12 00:05:26 by Charles_Byrd
You've undoubtedly noticed how up-in-arms everyone becomes when the government is on the verge of shutting down. I've also noticed that the people who most loudly express their horror at the notion of a partial government closure seem totally comfortable with the fiscal wall we are barreling into. That wall is being built, brick by brick, by two political parties that are unwilling to end Washington's spending debauchery. This isn't to deny that some people would have been hurt by the recently averted shutdown (which, by the way, would not have made our debt smaller). It's a call for consistency from anyone putting their good- government sensibilities on display. Click ...
In the GOP Extremist Hamas-Israel Rhetoric Sweepstakes, Marco Rubio Takes Early Lead
Post Date: 2023-10-12 00:04:10 by Charles_Byrd
Senator Marco Rubio had a terrifying suggestion for how to resolve the war between Israel and Palestine: eradicating the Gaza Strip. Fighting broke out on Saturday when Hamas launched a surprise airstrike attack on Israel. Israel has since responded in kind, imposing a total siege on the Gaza Strip, cutting off food, water, and electricity. At least 1,800 people have been killed on both sidesand the death toll is expected to keep rising. Click for Full Text!

If schools are going to be good, we need good teachers, education researcher Michael McShane recently noted in a new study. Thats a no- brainer, right? Unfortunately, as McShane discovered, some of todays teachers dont believe they receive adequate preparation to teach in the classroom, particularly in the ever-expanding realm of alternative schools and education.

Hamas Written by Glenn Kay
Post Date: 2023-10-11 22:54:21 by A K A Stone
HAMAS -- is a word that is familiar to people who keep up on the news about current events in Israel. Of all the anti-Israel Muslim terrorist organizations, Hamas is one of the most violent. The Hebrew word hamas, in fact, means violence. According to the Gesenius Hebrew lexicon, the Arabic cognate of the Hebrew word hamas means warlike valour (noun form) or to be active, brave, constant (verb form). I do not know Arabic, but I assume that this Arabic cognate of the Hebrew hamas is the word used by the terrorist group Hamas.
I knew that the Hebrew word hamas meant violence before all the recent anti-Israel terrorism. What I did not know was how many times the word hamas appears in the ...

Donald Trump signed a document 30 years ago that gave the true size of his New York penthouse that was later listed as far larger on his financial statements, according to evidence shown Tuesday at the former president's civil business fraud trial. The evidence appeared in an email attachment shown as Allen Weisselberg, the former finance chief of Trump's company, testified in New York Attorney General Letitia James' fraud lawsuit against Trump and his Trump Organization.

Report Falsely Says US Deploying Special Ops Hostage Rescue
Post Date: 2023-10-11 00:34:16 by Charles_Byrd
A Sky Arabia report that the United States could employ boots on the ground to free United States civilians taken hostage by the Hamas terrorist organization in Gaza is likely false. A translation of the report said, quoting a Pentagon official, that the United States was not ruling out some kind of special forces operation to rescue American hostages taken during the terrorist attack this weekend.

All over the world, everywhere you look. And now bugs. They are actually serious about bugs, and when I say they I mean the government. Justin Trudeau, the most hated man in Canada, and the most hated prime minister in history granted millions to yet another bug factory not too long ago. This venture is so unpopular, some wit created an app that scans a food product to see whether bugs are being used. Click for Full Text!

When War Comes Right to Your Door
Post Date: 2023-10-11 00:28:22 by Charles_Byrd
Weve all seen horrifying images of coordinated attacks that took place in Israel in the early hours yesterday morning. Struggling, crying women being thrown into vehicles and hauled away. Bodies laying on the ground. Missile strikes that look like fireworks before the chaos and smoke erupt from them. Paragliders armed with automatic weapons opening fire as they land. And in the aftermath, the world began to take sides. The Democratic Socialists of America held a rally in NYC where they let the swastikas do the talking and cheered the attack. Some people deny the event even happened, and others think the story is pure propaganda. Click for Full Text!
Acting Speaker Says House Will Act on Israel If Needed
Post Date: 2023-10-11 00:26:50 by Charles_Byrd
Acting House Speaker Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., said Tuesday that the chamber will move on aiding Israel "if we need to act" before a new permanent speaker is elected. Only one problem with that McHenry, serving as speaker pro tempore, doesn't have the authority to do anything other than act on matters related to electing a new speaker. Under House rules, all McHenry can do is gavel in, gavel out and preside over the election process. Click for Full Text!
Is This One of the Wars of the Apocalypse?

When I was first told that Israel was at war, I did not believe it. Even though I had warned my readers over and over again that a major war could erupt in the region at any moment, I literally thought that someone was trying to share some fake news with me. But of course it wasnt fake news at all. Israels government has invoked Article 40 Aleph and has formally declared war on Hamas. This is the first time in 50 years that Israel has formally declared war, and the death toll is rising with each passing hour

Napolitano & Burnett to Newsmax: 'Strange Things Happen After Terrorist Attacks'
Post Date: 2023-10-11 00:22:02 by Charles_Byrd
Former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano and business and political commentator John Burnett told Newsmax on Tuesday that "strange things happen after terrorist attacks," like the attack on Israel over the weekend by Palestinian militant group Hamas. "You remember what it was like living in New York City right after 9/11," Napolitano said during an appearance on Newsmax's "American Agenda." "The police clamped down on everything, surveillance increased. The government flexes its muscles in wartime, for better or for worse. Hopefully those muscles are not flexed as well in times of peace." Click for Full Text!
Government-Enforced Racism and Sexism

A half-century ago, the US was the envy of the world the Land of the Free, where virtually anyone could prosper, if he were willing to roll up his sleeves and work. America was made great through the immigration of those who wished to pursue the American dream of work = personal success. Its important for us to remember that those who were less ambitious remained in their homelands and helped their countries stagnate, whilst their worker-bee counterparts colonised America for generations.

The Bottomless Swamp of Regulatory Capture
Post Date: 2023-10-11 00:13:56 by Charles_Byrd
In the great scheme of civilization, governments arose to consolidate resources, wealth and power, and protect these scarce and valuable assets from outsiders. Outsiders included invading hordes, competing states and self-serving entities within the realm guided by one goal: to maximize private gain by any means available. In the past, these entities included petty fiefdoms, warlords and brigands. In the present, corporations are the entities guided by one goal: to maximize their private gain by any means available. This pathological drive to profiteer, exploit and pillage goes by the polite term "increasing shareholder value." (I'm sure the warlords and brigands would be ...

German Homeschool Family Facing Imminent Deportation Given One-Year Reprieve
Post Date: 2023-10-11 00:06:32 by Charles_Byrd
By way of backround: The Romeike family was forced to flee Germany in 2008, because they chose to homeschool. Germany does not recognize the fundamental right of parents to homeschool their children, and only permits the practice in very narrow circumstances As a result authorities began leveling fines that exceeded the familys income, forcibly removing the children from the home to take them to school, and threatening to remove the children from the home permanently
Fleeing to America, the United States government granted the Romeikes indefinite deferred action status, which allowed them to live, work, and remain safely in the United States without ...

The more months that pass, the more that antiracismthe fashionable ideology that rose to prominence in the wake of the 2020 George Floyd protestsis being exposed as a grift.
