The exiled Russian author Alexander Solzhenitsyn spoke out against the media and its suppression of independent thought. His words matter more than ever.

In 1978, the great Russian writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn gave the commencement address at Harvard University.

In his speech, he harshly criticized Western news reporting for endorsing “fashionable trends of thought and ideas” while suppressing “independent-minded people from giving their contribution to public life.”

Three Guardsmen landed in a pile.

Two men smashed the heads of the ones under them.

No skills whatsoever.

The men have leather dish-washing gloves for rappelling.

In First World armies, they use gloves that the soldiers don't have to remove in order to fight.

This is incredibly embarrassing.

A blue plastic porch chair, a rice cooker, and pink ribbon wrapped around the hoist used to lower the men.

The IRGC doesn't even have purpose-built assault helicopters.

This is a cargo aircraft that they modified with pink ribbon.

I've had a nod from a spook - in the last hour - that the Dragon FISA target was Melania.

That reminds me of something very annoying. Lots of women get threatened online. The annoying part is when the women cower publicly. It's what the perp wants.

The few times I've been threatened, I've said something like "Come on by! I'll alert my neighbors and we'll throw you a party!"

They always know what kind of party I'm talking about and they leave me alone.

5. Remember, these people believe that they're the most advanced humans to have ever lived.

They believe that they are intellectually and morally superior beings.

Therefore, they cannot be wrong. And they are entitled to power.

FOR EVER.

We have seen their type before.

Buzz Aldrin silently read from John 15:5, “As Jesus said: I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me, and I in Him, will bear much fruit; for you can do nothing without me.”
"I poured the wine, in the one-sixth gravity of the moon, the wine curled slowly and gracefully up the side of the cup. It was interesting to think that the very first liquid ever poured on the moon, and the first food eaten there, were communion elements."

While we're on economics and economists. Get educated and entertained with "Fear the Boom and Bust" Hayek vs Keynes rap.

youtube.com/watch?time_continu

We’ve been going back and forth for a century
[Keynes] I want to steer markets,
[Hayek] I want them set free
There’s a boom and bust cycle and good reason to fear it
[Hayek] Blame low interest rates.
[Keynes] No… it’s the animal spirits

Fascinating ...

"According to archaeologists, this is the largest ever Neolithic city discovered in Israel and the Levant and one of the largest settlements discovered from the New Stone Age in the world. The discovery is a game-changer due to its size and preservation."

We have no idea how much our ancestors knew.

So many libraries were destroyed that most written records are gone forever.

It took decades to figure out what this is.

@ThomasWic @REX I heard that whenever possible him and Melania spend several hours together a day privately. I have to think that the first hour is pure laughter

Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
