Think about this for just a moment, at the end of 2017 researchers discovered that the island of Zhokhov, once a peninsula, in the high Arctic was forested with a species of birch trees and inhabited by various types of warm weather flora and fauna just 9000 ybp until about 4800 ybp when the climate became so cold that nothing grew on the island. Today nothing grows but certain types of lichen. The now uninhabitable area was inhabited by humans who enjoyed temperatures at least 4°- 6°C hotter than current temperatures just in the high Arctic, the Tropical temperatures were much higher of course. An interesting point is that the humans hunted Polar Bears, Seals and Walrus in an Arctic that was almost free of sea ice for most of the year.
Oh, the poor polar bears! They have been around for an estimated 1.7 million years and survived every climate whether warm or cold. Does that raise any questions in your mind given the current ideas about global warming? Obviously, temperatures today are nowhere close to what they once were otherwise, the island of Zhokhov would once again be habitable by forms of flora and fauna as it once was during the Holocene Optimal. It’s called Observable Evidence.
Temperatures peaked between 7800 and 8200 BC years ago, the period is known as the Holocene Optimal because temperatures were ideal for all plant life, animal and sea life, but since the peak temperatures they have been falling to the point that our temperatures today are closer to those during the period immediately after the end of the last ice age than to those of the peak during the Holocene Maximum.
From the peak temperatures of the Holocene Optimal they dropped to the Minoan Warming Period, then cooler to the Roman Warming Period. Between the Minoan and Roman Warming Periods Scandinavia and Northern Russia enjoyed a Mediterranean like climate.
During the Roman Warming temperatures were high enough for the Romans to import ancient Mediterranean wine grape vines and cultivate them in the northern part of Britain, not only that but there is evidence that Mediterranean wine grape vines were cultivated in Finland and Northern Russia. That's impossible in today's cold temperatures.
After the Roman Warming Period came the Medieval Warming Period, it was so warm during that time the Vikings colonized Greenland and thrived, importing ancient European Barley, they grew fruit trees, many of the roots can be found in Viking graves and warm weather vegetables until once again it became too cold and they starved.
Fruit tree roots have been found in Viking graves, but instead of arable land, today that same area is permafrost. Few realize that most of the Glaciers were gone or greatly reduced during the Holocene Optimal until they began to greatly advance during the Little Ice Age.

The judge in the Trump case in Georgia worked for Fani Willis.
Judge Scott F. McAfee, 34, is "brand-new on the bench,” according to Law360. He became a judge in February after his December 2022 appointment to fill a vacancy by Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp. McAffee is the newest judge on the 19-member Fulton County superior court.
The Washington Post, the New York Times, Reuters and Axios also have stories.
McAfee had worked under Willis when she led the complex trial division of the Fulton County district attorney’s office. McAfee was later promoted to the major case division, where he prosecuted murder cases. Willis became district attorney after McAfee no longer worked at the district attorney’s office.
After leaving the district attorney’s office, McAfee became an assistant U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Georgia and then the leader of Georgia’s Office of the Inspector General. The office investigates waste, fraud, abuse and corruption in the state executive branch.

Meta Spox Says 60% of Total Employees Work on Censorship
I have no doubt; there is constant censorship and all sorts of weird and aggravating dirty tricks by Meta to suppress Conservative thought on Fakebook.
Also, I've noticed a whole lot of new people suddenly appearing on friends pages and arguing for liberal ideas, particularly I'm sseeing this over support for Hamas. It would be strange except I am sure these are employees of Meta doing what they are paid to do.
It's going to go into overdrive as the election nears.
The Democrat mayor of Kansas City is attacking Missouri Governor Mike Parsons, calling him a racist, for the Governor's characterization of the KC parade shooters as "thugs".
Parsons is a blockhead but he's right here; these dudes are thugs, no question.
In modern America you cannot speak honestly. And some are more equal than others.
The Mayor also railed for gun control to excuse himself for his failure to make his city secure.
Jack Smith is bitterly resisting disclosing information about the Trump case in a star-chamber-like approach to prosecution.
Special counsel Jack Smith said in a new court filing that he’s vehemently opposed to the Trump camp’s latest request to disclose evidence in the former president’s classified documents case, because disclosure would expose potential witnesses to danger.
"The defendants’ Motion is inconsistent with the process they proposed (and that the Court approved) for their supplemental reply brief,” Mr. Smith wrote in the Feb. 16 filing.
"And their request to disclose discovery materials should be denied for the same reasons the Government has explained elsewhere: doing so would unnecessarily expose potential witnesses to very real dangers of harassment, intimidation, and reprisal,” he added.
Mr. Smith’s latest filing stems from a Feb. 15 request by former President Donald Trump’s legal team asking Judge Aileen Cannon to enter an order permitting the disclosure of the discovery materials, arguing there’s a "strong presumption of public access in criminal proceedings” that they believe outweighs Mr. Smith’s request to keep the evidence secret.
In other words Smith doesn't want the public to know the facts in the case so the media can define it for the public.
This isn't America.

State sponsored, meaning Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea, hacking organizations are using America's open source AI to improve their hacking and spying capabilities.
"OpenAI, in a blog post written Wednesday, identified five state-affiliated "malicious" actors: Chinese-affiliated Charcoal Typhoon and Salmon Typhoon, Iranian-affiliated Crimson North Korean-affiliated Sandstorm and Russian-affiliated Emerald Sleet and Forest Blizzard. The post claimed the groups used OpenAI services to "query open-source information, translate, find coding errors, and run basic coding tasks." The two Chinese-affiliated groups, for example, allegedly translated technical papers, debugged code, generated scripts and looked at how to hide processes in different electronic systems. "

This is insane.
The US just experienced the largest population increase in a year ever.
Mostly driven by the surge in illegal immigration.
Truly mad. We are the third most populous nation on Earth and keep bringing in more, more, more! You don't see mass immigration to India or China or Indonesia but we say we have to take them all. Insane. We now have more aliens living here than the entire population of Canada and double that of Australia. There are more Spanish speakers here than in any country on Earth except Mexico. It's madness. We aren't a nation any longer. We are an empire, and like all empires it must be ruled by force; the peoples have nothing in common to bind them together.

The Catholic Church is dying. Here's the proof.
Cecilia Gentili, who died at age 52 at home in Brooklyn on Feb. 6, was an Argentinian transgender activist who was also a self-proclaimed atheist. The deceased activist was also awarded $540,000 from the Biden administration for "trans outreach" for HIV while living. Genitli was an illegal immigrant in the US for 10 years as a sex worker before gaining asylum in 2012.
The New York Times reported that the event doubled as "an exuberant piece of political theater." According to the outlet, Gentili was surrounded by the words in Spanish for "transvestite,” "whore,” "blessed” and "mother” above the scripture Psalm 25.
Attendees wore outfits with glittery miniskirts, halter tops, fishnet stockings, and at least one donned a boa sewn together with $100 bills.
This is a desecration of St. Patricks. It NEVER should have been allowed. You are not permitted to be buried from the Church if you are in an open state of sin when you die.
The whole Church heirarchy needs an exorcism.
The Republicans new Fisa Plan.
Meet the new plan, same as the old plan.
There are few meaningful reforms in the planned renewal of the FISA system, which so terribly abused Donald Trump and those who have opposed the power of the Ruling Class.
Here is the kicker:
"As the Hill reports, the new package "focus[es] on more reforms at the FBI to address misuse of the powerful spy tool,” but the deal does not include requirements for a warrant, which is "deemed a red line for the intelligence community but nonetheless a top priority for privacy advocates in Congress.”
The new measure "would severely limit the number of FBI personnel who can query the database, forcing more oversight from some 550 supervisors or lawyers before agents can tap into the database to gain information on Americans.” The bill aims to "protect members of Congress or other high-profile officials” by requiring consent before a "defensive briefing.”
The FBI will be required to "notify a member of Congress, with some limitation, if they have been queried in the 702 database.” As members of Congress and the public may have noticed, the FBI, tasked with counterintelligence, has become a law unto itself."
Get that? Congress is exemptingthemselves from spying BUT NOT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
Nice work when you can get it.
As the article mentions, the FBI has failed to stop multiple terrorist attacks since 911 despite a massive increase in their budget. The prefer to go after people like Aretha Franklin, parents fighting trans promotion at school board meetings, and Catholic nuns.
And the GOP is going right along with all this.
No wonder everyone in Washington hates Donald Trump; he's the only guy calling for a return to sanity.

Here is a list of the NGO's promoting the invasion of the United States.
OIM, Red Cross, UNICEF, HIAS, the European Union, Doctors Without Borders, UNHCR, and the Norwegian Refugee Council and others.
Many of these - like the Red Cross and UNICEF - receive taxpayer funds. And they have tax-exempt status as charities. Those exemptions and funds need to be revoked.
And Norway needs to be smote with great anger and furious wrath. If they pull this they can just take care of their own defense. We ought to tell Putin that Norway is not on our list of defended countries.
The article doesn't mention Catholic Charities, which has been instrumental in much of this.
This isn't hard to stop. Pull tax exemptions and cut off taxpayer assistance. I assure you it will end very quickly.
Special Counsel David Weiss has indicted an FBI informant who accused Biden of taking bribes from Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company.
Alexander Smirnoff was arrested for "fabricating" his claims that President Biden was on the take.
It's interesting how many people who have endangered the Biden Presidency have faced legal action from this cabal. Instead of just debunking and discounting Smirnoff's claim they are using the full force and power of the Federal government.
Time was this would be called a chiling effect on whistleblowers. Now it's par for the course.

Trends that will have major implications on the growth of government, education, and the labor force:
Economic illiterates continue to mismanage our country by using debt to increase the size of the ruling class governing with more costly regulations and control without growing productivity and profitability.
When the economic outlook is uncertain, fewer children are born so our borders were opened to make up for the depopulation of Americans.
How do we navigate the societal shifts reshaping government, education, and the labor force?
1. Economic policies play a crucial role in shaping our future. Data shows that increasing debt levels, coupled with regulatory expansions, can strain economic growth and productivity, impacting long-term governance and stability.
2. Demographic Realities: Economic uncertainties often influence birth rates. Studies indicate that during uncertain times, birth rates tend to decline, necessitating a review of immigration policies, to address demographic imbalances.
3. Education Challenges: The quality of education is pivotal for workforce readiness. Recent studies reveal a decline in global education rankings, with some regions struggling to produce graduates proficient in essential skills like math and English, potentially leading to a rise in welfare dependency.
Our public schools have fallen from #1 to #23 in the world and not one student in some school districts are functionally literate in math and English. These students will struggle to earn a living and we will have a growing population of lifelong dependency on welfare.
The growing wealth divide will continue to push America towards socialism as the growing majority will see no way to gain an economic footing.
4. Skills Mismatch: Employers face challenges in finding skilled workers. Research highlights a growing gap between the skills demanded by industries and those possessed by the workforce, underscoring the need for targeted education and training initiatives.
5. Cultural Evolution: Our cultural landscape is evolving, impacting our national identity. Studies suggest a shift in shared history, heritage, and culture, raising questions about the cohesion of our society.
America no longer has a common history, common heritage, or common culture.
We don't salute the same flag or look up to people who demonstrate great acts of courage as heroes.
And now we don't even rise for the same national anthem in our stadiums.
Are we even a nation anymore?
I caught a sizable chunk of Fani Willis' testimony yesterday on NTD News. What a horrible, hateful, angry woman! And she made a spectacle of herself in prime fashion.
Read about it here.
She was combative and aggressive and alternated that with "why are you yelling at me" when nothing of the sort was happening. She understands how a black woman can play on faux sympathy.
I don't think her testimony did her any favors.
BTW her paramour said Fani paid him back for all the trips and gifts and the like "with cash" and so there was no record. Thousands of dollars in cash! And Willis testified to that effect also, claiming she generally walks around with wads of cash coming out of her pockets. Ri-ight!
See, she had to claim these were loans and not gifts, which would be illegal. So they concocted this cock-and-bull story.
She has also fundamentally altered the time-line of her story so as to claim she started dating him AFTER hiring him. That has been contradicted by witnesses. That too is necessary as hiring her lover would put her in legal jeapoardy.
And she added all sorts of unnecessary details, like her affinity for Gray Goose vodka. Now, she's a lawyer and understands the importance of succinctness in answering questions. Those details were thrown in as red herrings. She clearly was trying to diver everyone's attention, like a magician waves his hand around so you don't see what he is doing.
I hope she gets the book thrown at her.
