1 out of 500

Where do we stand compared to a year ago? We were looking at a death rate of about 6% compared to about 1.8% now. But the incredible number of cases means that 1/10 Americans have had an active case that we know of, with almost 1 out of every 500 Americans dying from the disease.

In other news: Jennifer Granholm, during a press conference yesterday about the hack of the Colonial Pipeline, said, "We have doubled down on ensuring that there's an ability to truck oil in — gas in. But it's — the pipe is the best way to go. And so that's why, hopefully, this company, Colonial, will, in fact, be able to restore operations by the end of the week as they have said."

Oh, pipe is the best way to go, huh? Safer, more secure, more efficient, less risk of accidents? Then maybe this administration shouldn't be canceling pipeline projects!

Rand Paul Goes Full SAVAGE Against Fauci AGAIN in Senate Hearing


Just based on the video, the difference of opinion seems to be over definitions.  According to Rand Paul in the video, we reportedly funded "gain of function" research in the U.S., and one of the researchers collaborated with the Wuhan Virology lab.

I have been disappointed in some of the behavior in these videos.  It seems like Senators or Congresspersons will use the witnesses as punching bags and it has nothing to do with finding out information.

AP memo says it all

---------- Forwarded message ---------
From: Larry 

In March, the Associated Press distributed a memo advising reporters to "avoid" or "use caution" when using the word crisis. "One very real possibility is this strategy works," the person added. "They may get criticism in think pieces about it, but at his hundred-day mark, Biden is the most liberal president we've had — and the public thinks he's a moderate. That's a winning strategy to me. They're willing to accept that you're gonna write this piece as long as they know that swing voters in Colorado aren't gonna read it."

The true cost of imaginary money


That monologue was broadcast in the same week Joe Biden promoted the third of his gargantuan spending programs, bringing his first 100 days' total discretionary spending proposals to $6 trillion. (Context: total US GDP is $21 trillion.) This lavish largesse would be slathered atop the annual (and growing) nondiscretionary budget of nearly $5 trillion, against $3.5 trillion in tax revenue. Let's tweak Maher's routine, then:

'I fully understand that our financial system isn't perfect, but at least, or so I've imagined, it's real. But the American dollar increasingly resembles Easter bunny cartoon cash. I've read articles about Modern Monetary Theory. I've had it explained to me. I still don't get it, and neither do you.

'Dollars are now made up out of thin air and comparable with Monopoly money. We thought we knew that money had to originate from and be generated by something real, somewhere. Modern Monetary Theory says, "No, it doesn't"… Or as another analyst put it, "Quantitative easing is an open Ponzi scheme". The Federal Reserve is like having an imaginary best friend who's also a banker.

'Our problem here is at root not economic but psychological. People who have been raised in a virtual world are starting to believe they can really live in it. Much of warfare is a video game now; why not base our economy the same way? The conjuring of "borrowed" money from ether, only to have that debt swallowed by a central bank and disappear, is literally a game.

'Do I need to spell this out? There is something inherently not credible about the Fed creating not just hundreds of billions, but trillions in wealth, with nothing ever actually being accomplished, and no actual product made or service rendered. It's like Tinkerbell's light. Its power source is based solely on enough infantilized citizens believing in it.'

Somehow that monologue isn't as funny in the second version.

While Maher decries the electricity squandered on crypto 'mining', at least the color of the Fed's money is genuinely green. Tap a few keys, and voilà: trillions from pennies on the energy bill. So in the past year, the Fed effortlessly increased the world's supply of dollars by 26 percent and is on track for a similar surge in 2021. But is drastic monetary expansion truly without cost?

I've made Maher's Tinkerbell analogy myself, but to explain how traditional currency functions. I noted in an essay accompanying my novel The Mandibles, about America's 2029 economic apocalypse: 'Currency is a belief system. It maintains its value the way Tinkerbell is kept aloft by children believing in fairies in Peter Pan.'

In the novel, a fictional economics professor pontificates: 'Money is emotional. Because all value is subjective, money is worth what people feel it's worth. They accept it in exchange for goods and services because they have faith in it. Economics is closer to religion than science. Without millions of individual citizens believing in a currency, money is colored paper. Likewise, creditors have to believe that if they extend a loan to the US government they'll get their money back or they don't make the loan in the first place. So confidence isn't a side issue. It's the only issue.'

My confidence is going wobbly. Biden commands trillions the way previous presidents have commanded billions, while the public is so dazzled by zeros that they don't know the difference.

I've my quibbles with the particulars. Spending in inconceivable quantity courts waste and fraud. Biden's American Families Plan casts so many freebies upon the waters as to constitute a de facto universal basic income, and government dependency doesn't seem characteristic of a good life. Pandemic-relief unemployment supplements (which many Democrats would make permanent) are so generous that small businesses can't find employees willing to work even for two to three times the minimum wage. Biden is effectively reversing Clinton-era welfare reforms, which moved so many poor Americans from state benefits to self-respecting employment. Financing all these goodies by hiking corporate taxes is popular, but only because few people realize that every-one pays corporate taxes through lower pension-fund returns, job losses from corporate flight, lower wages and higher prices.

But it's the bigger picture that unnerves me. Zero interest rates have installed an accelerating debt loop. Governments, companies and individuals borrow because money is free. Central banks won't raise interest rates, lest the cost of servicing all this burgeoning debt bankrupt the debtors. Governments, companies and individuals borrow still more because money is free. The Federal Reserve has already announced it won't raise interest rates even if inflation climbs, while refusing to cite what level inflation would have to hit before reconsidering. I've plotted this story before. It doesn't end well.

Fwd: J&J blood clot in Utah

The first case of a rare blood-clotting condition thought to be linked to the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine has been diagnosed in Utah.

A male patient was recently diagnosed with vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia, also known as VITT, at the University of Utah Hospital, U. health officials said in a Wednesday news release.

The patient, who is under the age of 50, was treated and is now recovering at home, according to Dr. Yazan Abou-Ismail, an assistant professor of medicine in the Division of Hematology at the University of Utah.

"He continues to do well and feel well," Abou-Ismail said at a Wednesday news conference about the case.

The blood clot condition led to a nationwide pause on administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine last month after six cases were reported among over 6 million people who received the vaccine. The pause was lifted on April 23 after federal regulators determined the vaccine's continued use is safe.

From: Larry 

In that way, "Is America a racist country?" is the political equivalent of being asked in court when you stopped beating your wife.

The most important problem with "Is America a racist country?" is that the question itself is based on a malicious and grossly incorrect set of assumptions. Racism is not an opinion. It is a fact. Moreover, the fact that America is a racist society, and that racism and white supremacy negatively impact the life chances of Black and brown people, is one of the most overdetermined and repeated findings of social scientists and other experts.

One can reasonably discuss the dimensions and varieties of racism in America, and how it contours and structures American society to the benefit of white people and the disadvantage of black and brown people. One can also reasonably discuss questions of data and discover new insights from history. One can have a productive discussion about whether and how America can be redeemed from its racist origins.

But the fact and reality of racism and other systems of privilege is that such systems of power give unearned advantages to those individuals and groups defined as being "white," as compared to nonwhites. That is a settled question.

Who is the audience for the public ritual of asking and answering this question?

Today's Republican Party is a white supremacist organization. When Tim Scott, Donald Trump, Lindsey Graham, Ron DeSantis and other prominent Jim Crow Republicans and Trumpists offer their thoughts about racism in America, they are speaking almost exclusively to racially resentful or outright racist white people — because those people are the foundation of the contemporary Republican Party and the Trump movement.

President Biden has proposed spending trillions, but does it have a chance in passing?

President Biden's proposals have been met with near-universal hostility by Republicans, who remain concerned about spending so much money so quickly.

Democrats and progressives remain pleased with the proposal for the most part. A number of moderate Democrats will ultimately decide whether or not these plans pass, however.

Democrats could pass this on their own, but it would require every single Democratic senator to support the measures.

If any Democrat in the Senate says no, it would then require some Republicans to get on board.

Already some moderates, like Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), has expressed being "uncomfortable" with so much spending.

Negotiations will continue over the proposals for the next several weeks.

A final vote is likely still months away.

Spending like there is no tomorrow

A hundred million Americans have been vaccinated. The problem no longer is producing and distributing enough vaccines for the public but finding enough people who want to get them.

Whereas FDR confronted a 25 percent unemployment rate during the Great Depression, Joe Biden inherited an economy on the verge of takeoff.

GDP grew by 1.6 percent in the first quarter, or at a 6.4 annual rate. Some projections have GDP this year growing at the fastest clip since 1951. Consumer spending is expected to be the highest on record.

Just finished watching a few episodes of "A Handmaids Tale". Frightening the similarities between it and the Democrats today. I could see AOC as the head of the "utopian society" in the show which is all about complete government control, totalitarianism, taking away the rights and freedoms of the people. Just like today with the cancel culture, political correctness and if you believe "all" lives matter, you lose your job or worse. Very, very scary parallels if any of you have watched this series.

Officer Tatum REACTS - MOST INSANE GETAWAY DRIVING EVER RECORDED

Violence from the extreme left.


Personally, I think that the election of Barack Obama emboldened the extreme left to want their full agenda now, and anything less than that is not acceptable.  Gone are the days where they would have to couch their positions in more reasonable-sounding terms.  Add to this the election of Donald Trump being a major setback to their extreme goals, they went full-on vicious until they got rid of this impediment. 

Joe Biden seems to correctly read the political direction of his party.  He has proposed an additional 6 trillion spending over the normal 4.5 trillion dollar budget.  Never mind the fact that the government only takes in about 3 to 3.5 trillion in taxes.

Let's say that Joe Biden gets everything he has asked for.  Then what?  Are the people on the extreme left going to be satisfied with that?  Will they say that we have spent way too much money and just for the sake of fiscal responsibility we need to cut back?  No, they will say that this is only the downpayment. 

Census result modified by white house?

More than a dozen House Republicans Friday are questioning Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo on whether there "was any political interference" in the final census numbers used to decide how many House members each state will get for the coming decade. 

"The apportionment population results released by the Census Bureau are strikingly different from the population evaluation estimates released just months ago on December 22, 2020," the GOP members wrote. "Remarkably, the differences benefit traditionally blue states – which gained population compared to the estimates – over red states which tended to lose population compared to the estimates."

The GOP group asks Raimondo for a trove of documents, including communications between the Census Bureau and the White House, and whether the counting of illegal aliens in the congressional apportionment may have had an effect on the final result

From: Larry...

On Government "Investment"

The Making of Democratic Memory › American Greatness

For almost a year now, we've been hearing the sermon that any officer killing any suspect of color under any circumstances is proof, not only of the inherent racism of the officer in question, but also of the systematic racism of institutional policing. That's still "true" within the orbits of the increasingly ideological Left but we new have a corollary to that dogma: An officer killing a suspect of color to save the life of another person of color is also racism.  

It also shows something deeper and more troubling: That, for the modern Left, justice is about as relevant as the dodo. In a just society, we would mourn Bryant's death (because no one should be happy when lethal force has to be used, particularly on one so young) but the mourning would be heavily tempered with the honest acknowledgment that she was in the wrong and needed to be stopped before she deprived another girl of her life. We can no longer have that without the risk of being dubbed a white supremacist or something equally horrible. And that places us in a very precarious position because it illustrates that none of us can expect to receive justice if we are wronged.

The Left's reaction to the Bryant shooting is a clear indicator that maintaining the ideological narrative trumps giving a person his due; even if that involves the alchemy of making a criminal a victim at the expense of the real victim and the real hero. It also raises another question. If the end of society is justice, as Alexander Hamilton said, then what are we left with when justice is wadded up and thrown into the trash?
The answer is a totalitarian society,

As many have pointed out on social media after the shooting: George Floyd's videotaped death was said to be so clear that it was obvious Derek Chauvin was guilty; there was hardly any point in even having a trial. A blind man, we were told, could see that he was a racist murderer. Ma'Khia Bryant's videotaped death, on the other hand, is so unclear that anyone who actually believes what his eyes tell him must be said to be aiding and abetting the killing of black Americans by racist cops.
 
In other words: The Left has gone from mind control via the creation of thought crime and the tying of everything to racism (which is the distinguishing characteristic of totalitarianism as opposed to authoritarianism) to now controlling even the raw, sensory data that we intake.

Ben Domenech on Chris Wallace praise of Biden speech


Chris Wallace is probably correct that the majority likes getting stuff from the government if presumably, they can make others pay for it.

Forced to pay union dues

---------- Forwarded message ---------
From: Larry 

President Joe Biden promised to not increase taxes on the middle-class, but his gift to organized labor, the Protecting the Right to Organize Act (PRO Act), has the same impact as a tax increase on millions of Americans. The PRO Act does not protect anyone's right to organize; those rights already exist. Quite the opposite, it strips employees of their right to not associate with a union and forces them to annually pay hundreds of dollars to unions against their will.

Currently, people living in Right to Work states and working for a unionized private-sector company are not required to join the union or pay dues. 

But Biden and House and Senate Democrats want to strip private-sector Americans of their right to choose and compel expensive union membership in companies that are unionized. (Public-sector employees would still enjoy right-to-work protections due to the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in the Janus v. AFSCME case.)

The rationale behind the PRO Act is simple. OpenSecrets.org says unions poured $27.6 million into Biden's campaign, and he wants to repay them by forcing millions of Americans to pay them dues or agency fees.

Illegal Immigration Into America Is Part of a Long-Term Communist Program to Destroy the US

I'm not saying that I believe in conspiracies, but I do think that the extreme political left is trying to advance its agenda.  This has been going on for decades, and at the very least it has been independent individuals and groups with the same agenda, but it looks more and more like a mass coordinated effort.

Daily Wire Backstage: Biden’s Congressional Address

At least half of the video is the Biden speech and Republican response, of which I only watched a tiny bit, but the remaining discussion is at such a high intellectual level that I feel compelled to share it.

George Orwell’s 1940 Review of Mein Kampf

Also, he has grasped the falsity of the hedonistic attitude to life. Nearly all western thought since the last war, certainly all 'progressive' thought, has assumed tacitly that human beings desire nothing beyond ease, security and avoidance of pain. In such a view of life there is no room, for instance, for patriotism and the military virtues. The Socialist who finds his children playing with soldiers is usually upset, but he is never able to think of a substitute for the tin soldiers; tin pacifists somehow won't do. Hitler, because in his own joyless mind he feels it with exceptional strength, knows that human beings don't only want comfort, safety, short working-hours, hygiene, birth-control and, in general, common sense; they also, at least intermittently, want struggle and self-sacrifice, not to mention drums, flags and loyalty-parades. However they may be as economic theories, Fascism and Nazism are psychologically far sounder than any hedonistic conception of life. The same is probably true of Stalin's militarised version of Socialism. All three of the great dictators have enhanced their power by imposing intolerable burdens on their peoples. Whereas Socialism, and even capitalism in a more grudging way, have said to people 'I offer you a good time,' Hitler has said to them 'I offer you struggle, danger and death,' and as a result a whole nation flings itself at his feet. Perhaps later on they will get sick of it and change their minds, as at the end of the last war. After a few years of slaughter and starvation 'Greatest happiness of the greatest number' is a good slogan, but at this moment 'Better an end with horror than a horror without end' is a winner. Now that we are fighting against the man who coined it, we ought not to underrate its emotional appeal."

Fwd: Ungodly amounts of money

Biden wants to spend an additional $6 trillion beyond what the federal government would ordinarily spend. That's about a third of the entire U.S. economy, all on top of the $4.4 trillion the government spent in 2019, the last non-pandemic year.


---------- Forwarded message ---------
From: Larry 

What is the Biden presidency? The Biden presidency is . . .

. . . spending $1.9 trillion on the "American Rescue Plan," commonly described as "the pandemic-relief bill," so you can move on to . . .

. . . a $2.3 trillion "American Jobs Plan," commonly described as "the infrastructure bill," so you can move on to . . .

. . . a $1.8 trillion "American Families Plan," which hasn't gotten a nickname yet, but will probably end up being called "the education bill" because it pledges to provide, at minimum, four years of free education . . .

. . . so you can move on to the "Green New Deal for Cities," which would "provide $1 trillion for struggling municipalities" . . .

. . . so you can move on to a "Green New Deal for Public Housing," which would spent $180 billion to "retrofit, rehabilitate, and decarbonize the entire nation's public housing stock," both of which are separate from . . .

. . . the THRIVE Act, which would spend — excuse me, "invest" — $15 trillion over 15 years to create "family-sustaining, union jobs across the economy," which is separate from . . .

. . . I guess we would call it the "Green New Deal Classic," which originally called for eliminating 88 percent of our current energy sources, banning cars, and cutting military spending by at least half.

Got that? Like the old joke about the turtles, it's massive spending bills, all the way down.

Fact-checkers are quick to emphasize that Biden's infrastructure plan "is not the Green New Deal." PolitiFact asked Greenpeace, and Greenpeace emphasized that the two proposals are different, so that settles the issue:

The American Jobs Plan also includes about $480 billion to boost manufacturing and research and development, some of which might boost clean energy. The THRIVE Act folds money for those activities into other line items, primarily its investments in clean energy.

Ryan Schleeter, spokesman for Greenpeace USA, a Green New Deal Network member, said it is misleading to equate Biden's proposal with the Green New Deal.

"The American Jobs Plan is similar in intent to the THRIVE Act, but far narrower in scope and scale," Schleeter said.

Good heavens, how could anyone possibly mix up those two massive new spending proposals focused on clean-energy projects? It's like Dylan McDermott and Dermot Mulroney. They're completely different.

Just in those first three Mad Libs bills listed up there — "The American [Noun] Plan" — Biden wants to spend an additional $6 trillion beyond what the federal government would ordinarily spend. That's about a third of the entire U.S. economy, all on top of the $4.4 trillion the government spent in 2019, the last non-pandemic year.

I don't know if we're about to endure a sudden and lasting surge in inflation; the Capital Matters guys can sort that out better than I can. I do know that the Consumer Price Index had its biggest jump in about a decade last month, and the overall price index is up 2.6 percent from a year earlier. In the past month, gas prices are higher, natural gas and energy costs are higher, and food prices are higher, both at home and in restaurants. You may have noticed that suppliers are scrambling to find lumber and semiconductor chips. It sure feels like inflation is making a comeback.

Mark May 12 on your calendar; that's when the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics offers its next round of updated numbers. Two consecutive months of dramatic jumps in the consumer price index would suggest this wasn't a brief, pandemic-influenced fluke.

One condition that can cause inflation is "too many dollars chasing too many goods" — "when the aggregate demand in an economy strongly outweighs the aggregate supply, prices go up." If the government starts running the printing presses and throwing around money willy-nilly, but the supply of goods doesn't keep pace, prices go up. Yes, you've got more money in your bank account or wallet, but so does everyone else. Prices go up, so the additional money you've received doesn't help you as much.

The Cancer of Critical Race Theory

My father-in-law, Bob Baillie, a wonderful man and maybe the best storyteller I ever knew — in a way that only an Aussie could be — was not one of the lucky few. It started with "dry mouth" and an ill-defined feeling of something being "not quite right." Then we got the diagnosis: pancreatic cancer. He was dead six weeks later, the last week of which was a brutal misery.

This is the thing with internal organ cancers: They frequently show no symptoms until they've reached an advanced stage, typically Stage Four, and by the time the diagnosis is made, there's often nothing to be done. That's why these cancers' five-year survival rates are so low.

The American body politic is suffering from just such an internal cancer, one that has gone unrecognized by most during its early stages, especially when it was confined to a small corner of that place from which many such cancers originate: the halls of academia.

That cancer is critical race theory.


In brief: critical race theory (CRT) is a modified form of Marxism that divides people based on race and culture rather than class. The worldviews are similar in every other important way, the most significant being that they are promoted and perpetrated by people seeking their own power and aggrandizement regardless of the cost to society or to humanity. In the first iteration of this mindset, this meant the death of about 100 million human beings.

Just as Karl Marx didn't necessarily intend his philosophy to lead to the murderous pogroms of Stalin or Pol Pot or to Mao Zedong's starving tens of millions of his own countrymen to death in "the biggest episode of mass murder ever recorded," CRT founder Derrick Bell might not have intended his new "theory" to become the national cancer that it is. Indeed, CRT was initially little more than a debate in academia about the proper way to structure a college curriculum. No need for the "working man" or the "soccer mom" to care about that, right? The founding of CRT was Stage One of its cancerous spread; it was there, but nobody recognized its terrible, inevitable path.

Stage Two involved the spreading of these ideas, just as with Marxism, into the minds of ambitious people outside the world of academia and professional philosophizing. Some of them might have been true believers, and some of them recognized its potential as a tool to manipulate and dominate, whether through selling books and "consulting" contracts or through holding political office.

As they won elections and gave their lectures to confused ordinary Americans who didn't understand why they were being called racist but felt afraid and powerless to call out the evil before them, the spread of the cancer of CRT reached Stage Three. Even then, had it been sufficiently recognized and treated, we might have recovered.

But just as Marxism in the hands of megalomaniacs or other seekers of power and personal fortune destroyed the lives of untold millions of men, women, and children by making its threat nearly unrecognizable until it had spread beyond the ability of the populace to control it, so it is with CRT in the hands of those who would destroy this nation from the inside. And so it is that we have reached Stage Four.

Purveyors of this evil mindset, such as Ibram X. Kendi and Kimberlé Crenshaw, race-hustlers like Al Sharpton and Robin DiAngelo (yes, race-hustlers can be white, too), and the mendacious yet still fêted-at-all-the-right-cocktail-parties Nikole Hannah-Jones, are making careers out of poisoning the minds of Americans and turning us against each other based on the immoral concept that a few hundred million individual Americans are responsible for misdeeds of mostly long-dead others, very often others who died before today's Americans' progenitors even reached these shores.

Warning: This is what's in your face mask!

Elections have consequences

Barack Obama liked to remind us that "elections have consequences."

Boy, do they! For conservatives like me, the months since Democrats took over the White House and the Senate have been a tsunami of consequences. How do you think I like it when Joe Biden's handlers aim 60 executive orders at the tip of his pen to effectuate a fundamental transformation of this country? Or when the Democrat-controlled Congress tries to push through statehood for the District of Columbia in order to guarantee their continued control of the Senate? Or when the southern border is turned into a 2,000-mile illegal-immigrant processing center?

Unfortunately, the dictum that "elections have consequences" is not recognized as a legitimate principle when Republicans defeat Democrats. That was obvious when Donald Trump won the 2016 election and spent the next four years being vilified as a Russian puppet, a racist and a danger to the republic. You see, Democrats consider elections to be their most legitimate means of seizing power, but not necessarily the most effective. For them, politics is the continuation of war by other means, and they have been waging war against not just Republicans, but against the Constitution for at least the last 50 years.

We could examine the truth of that statement in multiple arenas, including the attempt to repeal or neuter the Second Amendment, the assault on equal rights in order to replace equality with the Orwellian concept of equity, and of course the aforementioned unconstitutional push to convert D.C. into a state.

But let's stick with elections because any political party that controls elections ultimately controls everything else. Nancy Pelosi obviously knows that, which is why she made the For the People Act her No. 1 priority in the 117th Congress. The Constitution gives authority over federal elections to the individual states that make up the Union, but Pelosi's H.R. 1 would strip that authority from the states and give it to Congress. One provision in particular would outlaw the use of voter ID to verify that anyone who casts a vote is legally entitled to do so. Again, as crazy as it sounds, this is the No. 1 Democratic priority.

Let's say it one more time till it sinks in: Democrats want to ban states from using the most obvious and fair method to make sure that all votes in an election are legal votes — checking voter ID. No wonder millions of Republicans have a sneaking suspicion that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Donald Trump. What do the Democrats have to hide?

But it's not just the 2020 election that makes conservatives fear that they are being dealt a hand of three-card monte. Consider what is happening in my home state of Montana. Gov. Greg Gianforte just signed two election integrity bills into law, and almost immediately the state was hit with a lawsuit by the Democratic Party to overturn the will of the people.

Wait a minute? I thought elections have consequences! But you forgot the asterisk that indicates "unless Republicans win." Elections Have Consequences; Cheating Doesn't | RealClearPolitics

Recent Shooting of Ohio Teen Could Be Final Blow for Media and BLM - Revolver

In Columbus, Ohio, a police officer saved a black teenage girl's life by shooting another teenage assailant, Ma'Khia Bryant, who was assaulting her with a knife. This was the screenshot moments before the police officer discharged his weapon.

Former police officer Brandon Tatum broke down what happened frame by frame.
The globalist Regime Media dove into this hoax headlong in order to reinforce their tenuous and outright false narratives about policing and race in America. Of course, they chose to full-throatedly endorse this hoax on the very day that the jury delivered its verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin. But while the mob got the verdict they wanted — an incredible simultaneous 2nd degree murder, 3rd murder and manslaughter conviction — a recent poll suggests the American people are largely onto the media's hoax behavior.

A March 2021 USA Today-Ipsos Poll revealed that only 36 percent of Americans believe George Floyd was "murdered" despite a full year of massive media and corporate propaganda.

Climate crisis has shifted the Earth’s axis, study shows - The Guardian

Seriously, the Guardian is taking advantage of the stupid people in our world. Does anyone with a functioning brain cell really believe climate change caused the Earth to tip on its axis??? It's the other way around. The Earth's axis shift is causing climate change, not the other way around. Geez, Louise!

Since the Earth is a rotating body in space, it makes some sense that shifting mass would affect the rotation.  I have no doubt that this has happened before.  Even gravity is not uniform all over the planet because the Earth's internal mass is not uniform.  But as the article says ...

"However, the movement of the Earth's axis is not large enough to affect daily life, he said: it could change the length of a day, but only by milliseconds."
