La Palma's erupting volcano has entered a 'new explosive phase' with more ash and smoke being thrown into the air amid warnings that the lava flow might never reach the sea - increasing its destructive force on land.

Volcanologists on the Spanish island said there is more 'explosive activity' around the crater today, blanketing nearby neighbourhoods with ash, which comes after the force of the eruption reached unprecedented heights overnight - with chunks of lava being thrown up to 1,300 ft in the air.

New Audit Reveals NASA Paid Boeing $2 Billion More Than SpaceX for Same ISS Mission

In 2014, NASA awarded two multi-billion-dollar contracts to Boeing and SpaceX, commissioning them to each build a spaceship system that can transport U.S. astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS), in a move to end the space agency’s sole reliance on Russian Soyuz vehicles for this mission.

The two companies are essentially building the same project for NASA, but for dramatically different prices. The contracts, awarded under NASA’s Commercial Crew Program (CCP), are valued at $4.3 billion for Boeing and $2.5 billion for SpaceX. But the preferential treatment doesn’t stop there. On top of Boeing’s already higher contract amount, NASA agreed to pay the company nearly $300 million extra, a new audit by the space agency’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) has found.

Pediatricians Remove Info on Mask Risks, Dangers for Kids

Throughout 2020 and 2021, ever since the declared COVID-19 pandemic, government officials consistently have been inconsistent in their assessments and recommendations for public health. In August 2021, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) joined the ranks when they endorsed the CDC’s recommendation for masking.1

Since they did not want to be seen holding inconsistent positions, they removed years of information from their website that explained the importance of facial cues to early brain and child development. The removal of the content culminated August 12, 2021, with the fourth in a series of tweets, in which they said:2

“Babies and young children study faces, so you may worry that having masked caregivers would harm children’s language development. There are no studies to support this concern. Young children will use other clues like gestures and tone of voice.”

Plot Twist: After Lying Down for 18 Months Australia Erupts in Some of the World’s Most Spirited Anti-COVID Cult Protests

Australia, welcome back among the living.

The protests aren’t even that large. The energy on display isn’t even the result of how many are attending, but who they are spearheaded by — construction workers.

The protests were preceded by threats that anyone who does not vaccinate will be “locked out of the economy”.

Builders account for one-sixth of all workplace deaths in Australia. (Needless to say the remainder falls on farmers, fishermen and forklift drivers — not cops, professors and “public health” parasites.)

To work a job that actually carries risk to life and limb and to then have it shut down by middle-class wankers because there is a flu about… And to then be threatened by the same Zoom classes (many of them fed by your taxpayer dollar) that — unless you take part in the demented virtue-signaling rituals they do — you and your family will starve is quite something. It’s cheeky, insufferably so.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Not too long ago, pundits were saying the US would follow Australia's lead in a medical dictatorship. Now that the Australians are rioting, I am starting to think they were correct!

Gen. Milley Defended George Floyd Rioters in Talks With Trump – Report

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, tried to downplay the scale of the George Floyd protests in May 2020 and convince then-US President Donald Trump that the protesters were not “burning America down,” a new tell-all book “Peril” has claimed.

The general reportedly argued that major demonstrations only erupted in two cities and the number of protesters rarely exceeded 300. The George Floyd protests, staged under the Black Lives Matter (BLM) banner, would later grip almost half of the country for months, with many of them descending into riots, looting and, in one instance, result in the temporary expulsion of authorities from several city blocks in Seattle, Washington.

Gavin Newsom Signs Bills to Roll Back Single-family Zoning in California

California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed three housing bills last week after he beat back a recall effort, all aimed at rolling back local single-family zoning laws and encouraging new housing to be built, especially dense housing developments.

SB 8, SB 9, and SB 10 were all signed into law on Thursday, Sep. 16.

SB 8 overrides some local government authority to reduce the capacity of housing projects; and SB 10 promotes high-density developments in certain urban areas.

The most controversial of the three is SB 9, which would allow homeowners to split single-family lots into two, and allow them to build duplexes on each, without the approval of local authorities, and regardless of single-family zoning in those areas.

The idea is to encourage more housing units to be built, providing more supply and potentially lowering prices. However, the law is not likely to promote much new housing in urban areas like San Francisco, though it may have an impact in the suburbs.

Facebook claimed the song, which slams the Biden administration for abandoning hundreds of Americans and thousands of Afghan allies, "violated their policy on either politics or social issues." The song singles out Biden, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley.

In a two minute clip of the interview posted to Twitter, Sabatini explained that he views it as his duty as an elected official to protect the rights and freedoms of his constituents. “I’m not here to micromanage every aspect of their lives,” said Sabatini, “Maybe you don’t understand that because you work in journalism, but that’s the role of the government, that’s actually the founding principle of the government, is to protect rights, let decisions be made by individuals concerning their own public health.”

Biden to double refugee admissions to 125K amid border surge, Afghan evac

President Biden will increase the limit on the number of refugees who can be resettled in the United States to 125,000 for the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1, the State Department informed Congress Monday.

The new limit is double the current cap of 62,500 refugees, which Biden raised in May from the previous limit of 15,000 set by former President Donald Trump.

The increase comes as Biden faces criticism over the ongoing migration surge at the southwestern border as well as the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan — in which US citizens, legal permanent residents and applicants for special visas meant for those who helped America’s military in the two-decade-long war were left in Taliban-controlled territory.

The Wall Street Journal reports that approximately 40,000 Afghan citizens have been brought to the US in recent days, though none have been formally classified as refugees due to the haste with which they were taken out of Afghanistan.

Poll: Trump Dominates 2024 GOP Primary, Pence Leads DeSantis in Trump-less Field

A new national 2024 GOP presidential primary poll shows former President Donald Trump with a commanding lead but also that former Vice President Mike Pence leads a Trump-less field by double digits over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Surveying 490 registered Republican voters on September 15 and 16, the poll showed Trump in a dominant position atop the GOP and Pence on the rebound atop a Trump-less field and in second place behind Trump in a field with the former president. The poll was conducted by Harvard’s Center for American Political Studies (CAPS) and Harris.

“Trump drew 58 percent support when included, compared to Pence’s 13 percent and DeSantis’ 9 percent,” reported Florida Politics. “Sans Trump, Pence secured 32 percent support, while DeSantis had just 20 percent. Pence’s margin tripled.”

Without Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) stood in third place at just 14 percent.

In ignoring the latest John Durham indictment, most of the media and official Washington are ignoring the elephant between its written lines: the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Mr. Durham, the special counsel appointed to investigate the government’s handling of the Russia collusion mess, levels a single criminal charge against Michael Sussmann, then a lawyer for the Democrat-linked firm Perkins Coie. In delivering to the FBI fanciful evidence of Trump-Russia collusion a few weeks before the 2016 election, Mr. Sussmann is alleged to have lied to the FBI’s chief lawyer, James Baker, claiming he was acting on his own behalf and not as a paid agent of the Clinton campaign.

Wuhan scientists planned to release coronavirus particles into cave bats, leaked papers reveal

Wuhan scientists were planning to release enhanced airborne coronavirus particles into Chinese bat populations to inoculate them against diseases that could jump to humans, leaked grant proposals dating from 2018 show.

New documents show that just 18 months before the first Covid-19 cases appeared, researchers had submitted plans to release skin-penetrating nanoparticles containing “novel chimeric spike proteins” of bat coronaviruses into cave bats in Yunnan, China.

They also planned to create chimeric viruses, genetically enhanced to infect humans more easily, and requested $14million from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) to fund the work.

Papers, confirmed as genuine by a former member of the Trump administration, show they were hoping to introduce “human-specific cleavage sites” to bat coronaviruses which would make it easier for the virus to enter human cells.

Haitian migrants are being released in U.S. on ‘very, very large scale,’ official says

Many Haitian migrants camped in a small Texas border town are being released in the United States, two U.S. officials said, undercutting the Biden administration’s public statements that the thousands in the camp faced immediate expulsion.

Haitians have been freed on a “very, very large scale” in recent days, according to one U.S. official who put the figure in the thousands. The official, who has direct knowledge of operations, was not authorized to discuss the matter Tuesday and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Many have been released with notices to appear at an immigration office within 60 days, an outcome that requires less processing time from Border Patrol agents than ordering an appearance in immigration court and points to the speed at which authorities are moving, the official said.

CDC: Unvaccinated Afghans Bringing in Measles, Other Diseases. Agency Tells Doctors to Watch for Polio

Forget about the rapists, robbers, and human smugglers President Joe Biden brought into the United States with 118,000 other post-war Afghan evacuees.

More frightening is the chance that the Afghans will unleash an epidemic of diseases once thought all but wiped out.

In an “Emergency Preparedness and Response” release published on Monday, the Centers for Disease Control warned that doctors must prepare for a wave of mumps, measles, leishmaniasis, and worse still, polio. Already, 20 people arriving from Afghanistan have been diagnosed with mumps or measles.
