´Impossible´ Rocks Found
on Remote Volcanic Island

LiveScience, by Stephanie Pappas

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/19/2019 4:28:56 AM

On a tiny island between Madagascar and the east coast of Africa, scientists have discovered a mother lode of rocks that shouldn´t be there. The island is made from igneous, volcanic rock that hails from the oceanic crust. But the mystery rocks come from continental crust — more specifically, from a river delta or beach. "It doesn´t look like anything that could have formed on an island like that," said Cornelia Class, a geochemist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University. Funded by a National Geographic Society grant, Class recently led a scientific expedition to the island,

Were they put there recently by someone hoping to get a grant to study the island and area?

It is interesting how often scientists are baffled. If they would simply look in the Bible, they would find many of their answers.

Hmmm? How could continental crust rock end up in the upper strata of a volcanic cone that originated from a tectonic plate separation rift that originated at the bottom of the ocean? That really makes no sense at all. Even if such rock were to have been on top when the rift first began flowing magma, it would have been long buried- The magma is less dense than such quartzite rock and so the continental crust origin material would have been submerged in the lighter weight material that flowed up to form the islands. ´Tis a mystery like so many others this strange universe tosses out now and then.

Science does not always get it right. That is why a little humility re global warming/climate change would be prudent. When science whores itself out to a political cause, it is right even less often.

All the ocean floor is flowing around, and likely was part of some continental shelf long ago. Then the magma intrusion thrust upwards, made an island, and lifted some of the ocean floor with it.

Not terribly surprising.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is a ‘scam’
Washington Examiner, by Becket Adams    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/23/2019 5:03:22     Post Reply
The Southern Poverty Law Center’s problems go well beyond the fact it’s a vicious, left-wing attack dog with no care whatsoever for the reputational and personal harm it causes by lumping Christians and anti-extremist activists with actual neo-Nazis. As it turns out, the SPLC is a cynical money-making scheme, according to a former staffer’s blistering tell-all, published this week in the New Yorker. The center’s chief goal is to bilk naive and wealthy donors who believe it´s an earnest effort to combat bigotry. The only thing worse than a snarling partisan activist is a slimy conman who merely pretends to be one.

Democrats are conspiring to reelect Trump

Watch in slow motion as Democrats, goaded by the media, conspire to reelect President Trump: Voters care about the economy and making education and health care affordable. And so Democrats are talking about . . . abolishing the electoral college? Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) started the latest distraction at a CNN town hall on Monday. “Get rid of the electoral college,” she said, neglecting to mention that this has zero chance of occurring in the foreseeable future. The media took it from there. On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Garrett Haake pressed former representative Beto O’Rourke (Tex.)

Five things that didn´t happen
in the Mueller investigation
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/23/2019 4:28:42     Post Reply
Robert Mueller has delivered his report on the Trump-Russia investigation to Attorney General William Barr. Sometime soon, perhaps within hours, Barr will send the report´s "principal conclusions" to Congress. It will first go to the chairperson and ranking member of both the House and Senate Judiciary committees. It is unclear what will happen after that, but certainly other lawmakers will see the document, and there will be a steady stream of leaks of what is in the report. The Mueller investigation is over, and it is apparently the case that Mueller does not recommend any new indictments.

Who is the biggest threat to our constitutional order? It is not President Trump. Ever since Trump took office, Democrats have been telling us he is an authoritarian who threatens our system of government. Well, today it is Democrats who are declaring war on the Constitution. Leading Democrats are promising that, if elected in 2020, they will abolish the Electoral College and might also pack the Supreme Court with liberal justices -- allowing them to marginalize Americans who do not support their increasingly radical agenda and impose it on an unwilling nation.

The mainstream media seemed to suffer a collective shock Friday evening after the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller handed its final report of its Russia investigation to the Department of Justice. MSNBC host Chris Matthews seemed livid that neither President Trump, his children, nor his “henchmen” would face any criminal charges from the special counsel. “Maybe he missed the boat here,” Matthews said of Mueller. “Because we know about the Trump Tower meeting in June 2016, we know about the meeting at the cigar bar with Kilimnik [Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian political consultant].

Comey Leaked Memos In Order To

James Comey claimed in an op-ed Thursday that he does not care one way or the other whether special counsel Robert Mueller finds evidence that President Donald Trump conspired with Russia to influence the 2016 election or obstructed the FBI’s collusion probe. But the claim, which Comey made in The New York Times, is at odds with the former FBI director’s testimony about his actions shortly after being fired by Trump in May 2017. Comey testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee in June 2017 that he leaked memos he wrote after conversations with Trump in order

The prospect of a 225-bed homeless shelter on the Embarcadero, one of San Francisco’s most scenic and economically vital areas, took residents by surprise. Only eight days earlier, the proposal had been unveiled to turn what is now a parking lot—Seawall Lot 330—into the largest homeless shelter of its type in the city. Neighbors arrived en masse at the Port Commission hearing to express their views. It was standing-room only, with people crowded on floors and in aisles, and spilling out the door.

Last August, House investigators interviewed FBI deputy assistant director Jonathan Moffa about the Trump dossier, the collection of sensational allegations about Donald Trump and Russia compiled for Democrats during the 2016 campaign by the former British spy Christopher Steele. Republican lawyers had a simple question. Had the FBI confirmed any of the claims in the dossier? Moffa´s response set a new standard for non-answers. "So, I like to talk about this in kind of a living sense," he began. "Though, because the idea is, you´re never — you´re constantly evaluating that reporting, you´re constantly looking at incoming intelligence streams and investigative results.

Fox News contributor Dan Bongino weighed in on the pending lawsuit against CNN over its coverage of the viral confrontation between the Covington Catholic High School students and Native American elder Nathan Phillips, saying the liberal network has a serious trust issue. The legal team of high school student Nicholas Sandmann launched the massive $275 million lawsuit against CNN, accusing the network of ignoring the facts and putting its “anti-Trump agenda first” after portraying the MAGA hat-wearing teenagers as the aggressors in the altercation.

President Donald Trump has a low approval rating. He is engaging in bitter Twitter wars and facing metastasizing investigations. But if the election were held today, he’d likely ride to a second term in a huge landslide, according to multiple economic models with strong track records of picking presidential winners and losses. Credit a strong U.S. economy featuring low unemployment, rising wages and low gas prices — along with the historic advantage held by incumbent presidents.

To run or not to run? Despite leading a dozen announced Democratic 2020 presidential candidates in the polls, former Vice President Joe Biden is again dragging out a decision on a presidential run, repeatedly teasing that he is close to making up his mind. In April 2018, Biden said that "I know I got to make that decision by, you know, by the end of this year." By December, he had amended that to: "We´re going to make that decision in the next six weeks to two months." At the start of January, members of his inner circle intimated

The apparent scoop du jour is that ex-VP Joe Biden is set to announce his bid with his running mate already picked out: former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Suggestions for his VP thus far have been a who’s-who of the current field of competition for the nomination, including Harris and O’Rourke. Abrams possibly becoming The Chosen One is somewhat surprising, because her star has only so recently begun its ascendency — but not too surprising, because of her fierce intellect, warm demeanor and popularity. Stacey Abrams exudes good sense and kindness, delivered with impeccable poise: that’s the impression most

The commandant of the Marines has warned the Pentagon that deployments to the southwest border and funding transfers under the president’s emergency declaration, among other unexpected demands, have posed “unacceptable risk to Marine Corps combat readiness and solvency.” In two internal memos, Marine Corps Gen.

Barbra Streisand is under fire for comments she made about two men accusing Michael Jackson of sexually assaulting them as children. The legendary singer and actress said that Wade Robson and James Safechuck — whose allegations against the late King of Pop resurfaced in the recent documentary “Leaving Neverland" — “were thrilled to be there” and that what allegedly happened to them “didn’t kill them." Streisand, 76, made the strange comments to British newspaper The Times in a piece out Friday, in which she also said that Jackson’s “sexual needs were his sexual needs.”

Even though we do not yet know exactly what the Mueller Report says, we do now know that no other indictments are in the works. No collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign was found. So, the self-assured and confident predictions by so many on the left that they had seen "cold, hard evidence," and that Mueller would find copious evidence of "collusion" with Russia, was just wishful thinking alone. They all had to know the infamous "dossier" was faked.
