Fan Booted From College Booster Club for Defending National Anthem

A 74-year-old basketball fan was booted from a community college booster club after he confronted an athlete who was shooting hoops during the national anthem.

Jim Howard, of Garden City, Kansas, had been a member of the Garden City Community College booster club for 32 years.

His ouster is the result of an incident that occurred during the basketball team’s season-opener on Nov. 1.

While the rest of the team was inside the locker room, a Muslim player came onto the court and began shooting hoops during the national anthem.—More…

The U.S. State Department has courted controversy by announcing it will plough $700,000 into Hungarian media, angering the country’s anti-globalist, conservative government.

The funding was announced by U.S. Chargé d‘Affaires David Kostelancik, who has previously appeared to openly criticise the Trump administration by alluding to “apparent inconsistencies in [U.S.] foreign policy” and remarking that “not every criticism of the government is ‘fake news’.”—More….

Stanford dean caught on film engineering disruption of Robert Spencer speech on Islam

Stanford dean caught on film engineering disruption of Robert Spencer speech on Islam
I spoke at Stanford University last week, and Stanford administrators and Leftist students made sure that as few people as possible heard me. In The Coming of the Third Reich, historian Richard J. Evans explains how, in the early days of National Socialist Germany, Stormtroopers (Brownshirts) “organized campaigns against unwanted professors in the local newspapers [and] staged mass disruptions of their lectures.”

And here we are again.


Video: North Korean guards cross border into South in pursuit of defender, shoot him four times

Amazing Video: North Korean guards cross border into South in pursuit of defender, shoot him four times
I guess the reason we can see this is that South Korea has excellent security video at the border, and from a high enough vantage point that you can see pretty well into the North.

Whatever the reason, this is extraordinary.

German police arrest 6 men, posing as refugees, who planned to carry out a Christmas terror attack

German police arrest 6 men, posing as refugees, who planned to carry out a Christmas terror attack
Last December, Germany was rocked when a semi plowed into a crowded Christmas market in Berlin. 12 people were killed, dozens more were injured. The attack was eerily reminiscent of the Nice truck attack, and was eventually determined to have been carried out by a Tunisian asylum seeker on behalf of ISIS.

Angela Merkel (who many believe to be responsible for Germany’s immigration crisis) took a hit in the polls, but it wasn’t enough to derail her political fortunes.  She was elected to a fourth term in September.  At the moment, she’s in political hot water. So, the thought of yet another terror attack tied to the refugee crisis must fill her with dread.

Marshawn Lynch proves NFL commish Goodell should go
Well, here comes another tempest the National Football League can ill afford.

Running back Marshawn Lynch, playing for the Oakland Raiders in a game against the New England Patriots in Mexico City, sat during the playing of “The Star Spangled Banner” but stood up during the Mexican anthem.

On cue, that brought a tweet from you-know-who:

Capitol Cesspool: Dem Sen. Nancy Skinner Involved in Cover-Up of Sexual Harassment?

Capitol Cesspool: Dem Sen. Nancy Skinner Involved in Cover-Up of Sexual Harassment?
The California Legislature has declared and legislated sex “a contractual event,” and redefined consensual sexual relations as “rape” if it occurs on a college campus—but not in their own offices. Perhaps lawmakers should have turned their attention inward to their own Capitol offices where lawmakers have been accused of a great deal of non-contractual sexual events.

Headlines Monday by KTLA screamed, “San Fernando Valley Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra to Resign Next Year Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations.” But the devil is in the details. The article then states, “Bocanegra announced he will not seek reelection Monday, citing ‘persistent rumors and speculation’ regarding sexual harassment claims.”

Do the anthem-kneelers care that rookie Officer Brian Shaw was murdered?

Do the anthem-kneelers care that rookie Officer Brian Shaw was murdered?
NFL anthem-kneelers and their ignorant defenders like Stan Van Gundy claim that all they want is “social justice,” a term with no real meaning whatsoever. What they actually want is a series of changes to the criminal justice system that would make it harder to keep criminals locked up, and harder for police officers to make a decision during a dangerous situation to defend themselves.

We talked some months back about how the anthem-kneelers were creating an atmosphere that’s making the streets more dangerous for police officers. Every time cops’ lives are threatened, they have to consider whether the use of force to protect themselves will result in media recriminations, riots or denunciations from opportunistic politicians.

Cleaned-Up Coal and Clean Air: Facts About Air Quality and Coal-Fired Power Plants

Coal-fired electricity generation is far cleaner today than ever before. The popular misconception that our air quality is getting worse is wrong, as shown by EPA’s air quality data. Modern coal plants, and those retrofitted with modern technologies to reduce pollution, are a success story and are currently providing 30 percent of our electricity. Undoubtedly, pollution emitted by coal-fired power plants will continue to decrease as technology improves.

Watch: Wine “legs” and minibot motors

Watch: Wine
As any wine enthusiast knows, the “legs” that run down a glass after a gentle swirl of vino can yield clues about alcohol content. Interestingly, the physical phenomenon that helps create these legs can be harnessed to propel tiny motors to carry out tasks on the surface of water. Scientists demonstrate the motors in a report in ACS’ journal Langmuir.

After cooking, biofortified corn and eggs retain vital nutrient needed to prevent blindness

Corn muffins and other foods made with biofortified maize and eggs retain vitamin A after being cooked
Fortified and biofortified foods are at the forefront of efforts to combat vitamin A deficiency worldwide. But little is known about what influence processing may have on the retention of vitamin A precursors in these foods. Now in a study appearing in ACS Omega, scientists report that a high percentage of these healthful substances — in some cases, almost all — can survive cooking, depending on the preparation method.

Pulling iron out of waste printer toner
Someday, left-over toner in discarded printer cartridges could have a second life as bridge or building components instead of as trash, wasting away in landfills and potentially harming the environment. One group reports in ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering that they have devised a method to recycle the residual powder in “empty” cartridges into iron using temperatures that are compatible with existing industrial processes.
