Arctic Sea Ice, and Google’s Search Results “Reality”

The Danish Meteorological Institute’s most recent data shows Arctic Sea Ice Extent rapidly approaching the 1981-2000 mean. Rapidly.

Why Haven’t We Written About the Passing of John McCain?

Dan Williams aka; Hunter Dan, IM’d me on Facebook. “Why in the hell haven’t you guys posted even ONE story about the passing of the great American hero, John McCain?!?!?!” (Punctation in original.)

He has been at it for a few years now and despite the occasional media-friendly announcements of charges or indictments ‘Mueller’ still has nothing. How do we know this?

Trump’s Poll Numbers Improve Despite 90% Negative Coverage

Under the circumstances, this is an impressive accomplishment. The liberal media’s war against President Trump was as fierce as ever during the first four months of 2018, but the onslaught appears to be for naught: In the face of massive and hostile coverage from ABC, CBS and NBC, Trump’s overall job approval rating actually rose, from 37 …
