AOC-aligned progressive candidates
fall flat in Super Tuesday contests

Original Article

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's progressive candidates did not have a “super” Tuesday in the first congressional primaries of the 2020 cycle. The Democratic establishment, on the other hand, could breathe a sigh of relief after three primary challengers from Texas and California underperformed in highly anticipated contests against longtime Democratic incumbents and establishment darlings.  A favorite of progressives across the country, Texas congressional candidate Jessica Cisneros, an immigration lawyer, came just short of recreating the AOC primary upset of her own when she attempted to unseat nine-term incumbent Henry Cuellar, who represents the Texas 28th district south of San Antonio.

On top of Bloomie dropping out, Sandy, the tip stealing barmaid, had a big flop, too.

A Princess Cruises ship that recently carried people who have tested positive for the novel coronavirus was being held in waters off California late Wednesday as officials sent kits to test passengers and crew who were showing symptoms of the illness. California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) said during a news conference that he had asked that the Grand Princess, which left San Francisco on Feb. 21 for a voyage to Hawaii, avoid returning to the state until testing could be completed. On Wednesday night, he said 21 people — 11 passengers and 10 crew members — were symptomatic and would be prioritized for testing,

"The View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg didn't realize on Wednesday that the "Dr." in Dr. Jill Biden's title didn't represent a medical degree. After former Vice President Joe Biden's wins on Super Tuesday, Goldberg floated the candidate's wife for surgeon general. "I'm hoping Dr. Jill becomes the surgeon general ... she's a hell of a doctor. She's an amazing doctor," Goldberg said, as if she knew of the former second lady's medical expertise. After co-host Meghan McCain cast doubt on that, Goldberg said: "I could be wrong. I thought she was a PhD."

Divided Supreme Court rules illegal

A divided Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that illegal immigrants who use someone else's information when filling out tax forms for employment can face criminal charges, despite federal laws that liberal justices claim should prohibit such cases. The Immigration Control and Reform Act (IRCA) makes it a federal crime to lie on the I-9 work authorization form, while limiting how the false information can be used. Federal law also says information "contained in" the I-9 cannot be used for law enforcement other than specified exceptions -- but the Supreme Court ruled that if workers use the same information in tax documents, they can face charges.
How to Measure the Temperature of the Earth 5 replies
Posted by DVC 3/3/2020 2:20:59 AM Post Reply
As concerns man-made climate change: "The temperature of the Earth" is an ambiguous term that cannot mean anything. At any given time it is possible to measure the temperature of some very small part of the Earth, such as, perhaps, a shot glass of water. At that same moment, other temperatures of the Earth that could be measured will show a variation from the temperature of molten rock (1,300 to 2,200°F) to polar ice (32 to -76°F). Daily variation of the same place on Earth can be 50 to 60°F. Seasonal variation can be well over 100°F in high latitudes.

The Democrats’ poster girl for America-hating could swing Minnesota’s 10 electoral votes to President Trump in November. Representative Ilhan Omar now obviously enjoys trolling Republicans, perhaps lulled into complacency by the MSM’s general leftism and Minnesota media’s complicity in suppressing news of her apparent immigration fraud by marrying her brother (Scott Johnson of Powerline deserves a Pulitzer Prize for his role in exposing this major scandal, but won’t get one because the Pulitzer committee reflects the leftist bias of the mainstream journalism community).

Recently, A. Welderson wrote an article on American Thinker arguing that engineers make lousy U.S. presidents. As an engineer, I would like to defend the profession. Welderson's examples, Herbert Hoover and Jimmy Carter, had one trait in common that most engineers do not have. They wanted to be president. First, I should give you some information about engineers. Most of us are conservative. This is confirmed in a poll in an engineering magazine. It is consistent with my observations. In contrast, our managers are often Democrats. Considering that I am in the defense industry and Republican presidents

The history of socialism in America did not begin with Bernie Sanders or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Rather, it began in 1825 on the banks of the Wabash River in Indiana. On April 27 of that year, Robert Owen, a Welsh textile manufacturer-turned-philanthropist, welcomed 800 eager arrivals to the settlement he had christened New Harmony. New Harmony was to be a "community of equality" heralding a new way of life. Owen's followers would soon coin a new name for his vision: "utopian socialism."

Researchers at the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the University of Texas at Austin claimed to have made a breakthrough in their coronavirus research on Wednesday and said their data could help develop a vaccine. Scientists were able to create a 3D atomic-scale map of the part of the virus that attaches itself to human cells and causes infection, according to UT News. Mapping what researchers call the "spike protein" is a vital step toward developing vaccines and antiviral drugs. Jason McLellan, an associate professor at UT Austin, spoke with Fox News on Thursday about the virus and said researchers hope to study the 3D map,

President Trump brings razor-sharp instincts to the political picture, and nowhere was it more obvious than in his appearance in Bakersfield, California, signing a bill to clean up the junk-science federal "research" on water for the parched Central Valley and, better still, ordering the feds to give California's Central Valley farmers the water for their farms that they already paid for. According to Politico: "What they're doing to your state is a disgrace," Trump said. "After decades of failure and delays in ensuring critical water rights for the people of the state, we are determined to finally get your problems solved."

"They don't call it Super Tuesday for nothing!" Biden exclaimed, touting his success in the majority of states. "By the way, this is my little sister, Valerie," Biden said, grabbing his wife Jill's hand. He then grabs his sister's hand saying, "And I'm Jill's husband." Jill Biden was laughing as though her husband was making a joke. Valerie, however, was looking to Jill for a response.

It’s the year 2020 and the prodigal Dixie Chicks have finally returned, no thanks to George W. Bush and his ilk. Their new Jack Antonoff–produced single and music video, “Gaslighter,” dropped today, ahead of the May release of Gaslighter, the first new Chicks album in 14 years. Naturally, we have a landslide of feelings about it. Cowboy, take us away! Madison Malone Kircher: The Dixie Chicks are back! I could cry. In fact, I did. Rachel Handler: Let me begin by saying, for perhaps the 500th time in my brief life: Fuck you, George W. Bush. I cannot believe our erstwhile president nearly ruined music forever.

St. Louis resident Alicia Clarke says she feels as if she has been “failed by the system” and is now “not feeling safe,” and she has good reason to feel this way. After she was savagely beaten and stabbed by her neighbor, her attacker walked free. The court considered it decisive that he has an IQ of 49. He is also a Muslim migrant, which may explain both the reluctance to prosecute him and the scant and incomplete coverage this incident has received. St. Louis’ KSDK reported Monday that Clarke went out for a run near her home; when she returned, her cell phone was missing.

Republican Pierce Bush, a grandson of former President George H.W.

Aside from the recognition of coming from America’s most enduring Republican dynasty, Bush 34, was endorsed by the outgoing GOP incumbent, Rep. Pete Olson and raised more money than many of the other 14 candidates in the field. Troy Nehls and Kathaleen Wall, staunch defenders of President Donald Trump, advanced instead to the runoff.

What Super Tuesday tells us is that a lot of Democrats would rather risk losing to President Trump with Joe Biden than allow a socialist like Bernie Sanders to hijack their party. That’s good for America, but it’s also a treacherous Hail Mary pass for the party. The 77-year-old former vice president showed why, moments after taking the stage in Los Angeles on Tuesday night: He mistook his wife for his sister. “They switched on me,” he tried to explain. He went on to give a good speech about healing the nation, and dutifully kept to the script on his teleprompter.

The billionaire gained just 44 delegates by 10.11am, the time he announced his departure - but ran up a bill of $1 billion. He immediately and whole-heartedly backed Biden, the night's big winner, hinting that his vast fortune is now at the former vice-president's disposal.
