The Secret Life of Plants By Brian Simpson

     When I was in high school, there was a book The Secret Life of Plants, which was popular. I never read it, but I think it argued that plants are not mere mechanisms, but have a mental life. Well, the author was onto something, although mainstream scientists, dismissed the work as pseudo-science. Well, even so, it was more interesting than the unreplicable bs that they produce, usually for big business’ profits.

“In a major breakthrough, Italian researcher Umberto Castiello from the University of Padua gathered together a selection of studies supporting the idea that plants can sense, feel, think and even communicate among themselves. Castiello said he hopes to fuel a discussion regarding the cognitive abilities of plants, such as those often observed in humans and animals. Discussions on plants as cognitive agents could help lead scientists to the “roots” of cognition, he added. His findings appeared online in the Journal of Comparative Psychology.

The Racism of Antifa By Chris Knight

     For reference purposes, while antifa claim to be antiracist, when it suits them, they are quite prepared to call a Black woman by the n-word, no concerns. The only consolation is that if she was White, they would probably have killed her, just for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

“A video out of Portland shows a black woman involved in a confrontation with Antifa rioters who she accuses of calling her racial slurs as they temporarily block her vehicle. The clip begins with the African-American woman telling the white Antifa rioters to get out of the way as they claim they are engaged in a “non-violent protest.” “You setting fires in the street, no that’s violence,” responds the woman. The rioters position themselves in front of her car as she tells them to go and “tear up” another neighborhood. “Now they see how ignorant this looks, you don’t let someone call me a f**king n**ger bitch, you don’t want no race war out here…f**king ni**er bitch, that’s what you called me,” says the woman. The Antifa rioters deny being responsible for the racist slur before accusing the woman of pushing them with her car. “If I was pushing you with my car, you’d be laying the fuck over,” responds the woman as the confrontation becomes more heated. The rioters are finally forced to let the woman pass. One suspects that if she was white, they would have physically attacked her.”

It’s All Men’s Fault: UN By Mrs Vera West

     The sinister, nay, demonic, UN is at it again, and in fact never stops, this time saying that all bad things come from men, in their program of re-writing history, just a they re-wrote the science of race in the light of Marxism.   

“If civilization had been left in female hands we would still be living in grass huts”, Camille Paglia once famously said. But the United Nations didn’t get the memo:

What Will They Do if Trump Doesn’t Leave? By Charles Taylor

     The emerging scenario seems to be, as documented by Breitbart, is that the Trumper wins the election visa the Electoral College, but after the election, they use fraudulent voting to steal the election. Evidence of voting fraud has already emerged.

“An analytics firm bankrolled by billionaire Michael Bloomberg is predicting that while President Trump will appear to win on November 3, Democrat Joe Biden will actually win the election days later due to mail-in voting. Josh Mendelsohn, the CEO of Hawkfish — funded by Bloomberg and currently working for various pro-Biden super PACs — told Axios that his firm predicts a “red mirage” where Trump wins on election day but Biden wins the election days later when mail-in votes are counted: The reason we talk about a red mirage is in fact because we believe that on election night, we are going to see Donald Trump in a stronger position than the reality actually is. We are sounding the alarm and saying that this is a very real possibility, that the data is going to show on election night an incredible victory for Donald Trump. That is likely to be what we see. Mendelsohn claims it could take weeks before Trump’s election night victory is chipped away at by mail-in votes that will show Biden as the winner.”

Life in Danisistan By Ben Hall

     What is it like living in that place once called Victoria? Well, you have to get to like surveillance, not being shy when the police move by your house with their mobile snoop units. They are not interested in your toilet activities but just want to know that you are locked down and passive. Of course, they are not locked down, but sacrifices have to be made.

“Melburnians have expressed outrage at mobile surveillance units that are being covertly deployed to monitor them during the city's Stage Four lockdown. One of the mobile CCTV trailers has been seen in Victoria Gardens in Prahran since last week, as well as other spots in the local government area of Stonnington, in the city's inner-south. 'If you have a look around, everyone is doing the right thing and there's absolutely no need for us to be spied on. They have no regard for our civil liberties,' David Grayson from St Kilda East told The Age after visiting the park on Sunday. Mr Grayson also questioned whether the cameras would have any real impact on helping to enforce restrictions. Are you telling me that someone is watching a screen somewhere and then sends the cops over when they see someone having a picnic or holding hands?' Other residents have also voiced concerns over the mobile surveillance cameras and whether police and local government were overstepping their authority. Denzil Griffiths from Prahran made a complaint to his federal MP Dr Katie Allen who represents the seat of Higgins. 'This is just the latest intrusion in our lives and there's no justification for this type of surveillance. This is a public park, where parents go with there kids, people walk dogs and old people go for exercise as they're all entitled to do', Mr Griffiths said. Victoria Police have confirmed the units are deployed in other areas in Melbourne but would not reveal how many units there are or their locations.”

Father’s Day … In These Coviddy Times By Neddie Kelly

     Here is the story that you have been waiting for, to put a smile on your face, on Father’s Day too, and showing that even in these giddy coviddy times, life goes on, in all its amazement, against the utter horror of Covid-19:

“A transgender father who has just given birth to a baby has made medical history twice, but not for the reason you’d expect. Maaike, from Queensland, contracted COVID-19 from his partner when he was nine months pregnant. When he gave birth to his baby in March, he was the first Western person to have a child with COVID-19. Maaike was also the first person who didn’t need medical assistance during the COVID birth — coronavirus has since been found to give difficulties during pregnancies and labour. “My partner birthed his baby while in quarantine, making medical history as the first birth to COVID-positive parents outside of China, and the first unassisted COVID birth in the world,” Maaike’s partner of two years, Holly Zwalf, wrote in an article for The Sunday Mail. Maaike, a 43-year-old from regional Queensland, transitioned to a man but was still able to birth his “miracle” baby. He is a father-of-two, and has given birth to both kids. However, for this pregnancy he was impregnated through an anonymous donor. His partner Ms Zwalf also has a child of her own. “We were always going to be the unconventional family in the birthing ward, but we never anticipated quite how much of a stir we would cause,” Ms Zwalf wrote. Ms Zwalf returned from the UK in late February and had unknowingly brought the coronavirus with her. Still in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ms Zwalf was just the 15th case in Queensland. They were sent off to a quarantine in hospital, separated during this time. Ms Zwalf took her child while Maaike did the same, and all the while heavily pregnant. To make matters more complicated, the transgender dad also has cystic fibrosis. He required a multidisciplinary team of medical experts to ensure the safe delivery of the child back in March. However, in a world-first, he required no medical assistance during the birth. Maaike stopped taking hormones during the pregnancy and was able to “chest feed” after the baby was born. The family’s record-breaking birth is now the focus of research by the Infectious Diseases Department at the Sunshine Coast University.”

People Who Live in Commo Houses Should Not Throw Molotov Cocktails! By Chris Knight

     Alright everyone, here is story which is best seen by looking at the video. It seems that antifa were throwing Molotov cocktails at police, and one commo got caught on fire. Not to laugh at anyone’s misfortune, or hot feet, which would not be the Christian thing to do. But the question must be asked: there are numerous offences being committed here, from arson, to assault with a deadly weapon. Police could arrest the whole lot of them, using the national guard to collect them, putting them in cattle trucks, in chains, maybe, but the local Democrat authorities in the executive do not want this, since most of these decadent white punks are kids of the elite, who will be the future globalists, just like in the 1960s. This is their training ground, and the ordinary people their dummies for bashing. Later they will totally destroy them, when they have the power cosmic.

“New York City Police arrested the 20-year-old daughter of a wealthy Upper East Side family for causing property damage in a riot organized by an Antifa-affiliated and a black supremacist group in the city on Friday. The damage totaled over $100,000. According to the New York Post, 20-year-old Clara Kraebber is among the eight people arrested at the scene, where an angry mob in the area of 24th street wrecked shop fronts. The mob began their march from Foley Square and, over the course of the next three hours, marched north, causing property damage wherever they went. All across the city, store owners have erected plywood boards to protect their businesses due to the ongoing riots. Kraebber’s mother is Virginia Kindred, a renown architect and the owner of Kindred Arch works, a Manhattan architectural firm. They specialize in designing public spaces like schools and businesses and have produced architecture for Columbia University and New York University.  Kraebber's father, Markus Kraebber, is a professor at the Columbia University Department of Psychiatry. In 2016 the Kraebber family reportedly paid $1.8 million for their 16th-floor apartment on East End Avenue. The family also owns a 1730 home — featuring four fireplaces according to property listings in Litchfield County, Conn., per the paper.”

Against Dentists By James Reed

     Having had poor teeth all my life, most of which are now gone, I have also had terrible experiences with dentists. There has been the wrong advice on brushing which led to gum recession, due to the mania of cleaning, which in the day involved hard tooth brushes, but they always put it down to gum disease, with no real evidence only opinion, when my gums have seldom bled. I have had a dentist notice a decay, say it will demineralise, then face a tooth abscess in a few weeks’ time. Teeth have been filled which should have been pulled because of their insane conservative “save all teeth” ideology, leading to killer abscesses that I had to endure, always on a long weekend. I have waited in the dental surgery to get such teeth pulled for hours, while rich clients got a clean. I could go on, but Roosh in the below article raises another issue, about the fanaticism in having X-Rays, like X-rays were candy.

     It may be a psychological phobia, but I now hate dentists. I just get teeth pulled if I can find a dentist to do it, most won’t, wanting to do massively expensive root canal treatment, which may not work for people like me with calcification of the canals. Thus, while I am over 70, with one last wisdom tooth a few months back, that constantly went to abscess (treated with antibiotics), I had trouble getting an extraction, and had to take a GP’s letter with me to get someone to pull it. There is the issue of liability that Roosh in the article cited above speaks of, so Australia is heading right down the American road. We have all the worst of American culture and none of the very best, such as firearms freedoms. If we could carry guns I would put up with American style dentistry, biting the bullet.

Polio Outbreak Caused by Vaccine. What? By Mrs Vera West

     Wait! Stop press, all vaccination groupies, and that is most people. I thought that vaccines were supposed to give one immunity from the specific disease, not cause that very disease?

“The World Health Organization says a new polio outbreak in Sudan is linked to an ongoing vaccine-sparked epidemic in Chad — a week after the U.N. health agency declared the African continent free of the wild polio virus. In a statement this week, WHO said two children in Sudan — one from South Darfur state and the other from Gedarif state, close to the border with Ethiopia and Eritrea — were paralyzed in March and April. Both had been recently vaccinated against polio. WHO said initial outbreak investigations show the cases are linked to an ongoing vaccine-derived outbreak in Chad that was first detected last year and is now spreading in Chad and Cameroon. “There is local circulation in Sudan and continued sharing of transmission with Chad,” the U.N. agency said, adding that genetic sequencing confirmed numerous introductions of the virus into Sudan from Chad. WHO said it had found 11 additional vaccine-derived polio cases in Sudan and that the virus had also been identified in environmental samples. There are typically many more unreported cases for every confirmed polio patient. The highly infectious disease can spread quickly in contaminated water and most often strikes children under 5. In rare instances, the live polio virus in the oral vaccine can mutate into a form capable of sparking new outbreaks. Last week, WHO and partners declared that the African continent was free of the wild polio virus, calling it “an incredible and emotional day.” On Monday, WHO warned that the risk of further spread of the vaccine-derived polio across central Africa and the Horn of Africa was “high," noting the large-scale population movements in the region. More than a dozen African countries are currently battling outbreaks of polio caused by the virus, including Angola, Congo, Nigeria and Zambia. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many of the large-scale vaccination campaigns needed to stamp out polio have been disrupted across Africa and elsewhere, leaving millions of children vulnerable to infection. In April, WHO and its partners reluctantly recommended a temporary halt to mass polio immunization campaigns, recognizing the move could lead to a resurgence of the disease. In May, they reported that 46 campaigns to vaccinate children against polio had been suspended in 38 countries, mostly in Africa, because of the coronavirus pandemic. Some of the campaigns have recently been re-started, but health workers need to vaccinate more than 90% of children in their efforts to eradicate the paralytic disease. Health officials had initially aimed to wipe out polio by 2000, a deadline repeatedly pushed back and missed. Wild polio remains endemic in Afghanistan and Pakistan; both countries also are struggling to contain outbreaks of vaccine-derived polio.”

False News about Trump By Chris Knight

     Well, it just shows how desperate the Left are getting, with anonymous sources saying whatever goes down, sometimes the first thing that comes into their heads, which is not much. But, we don’t believe it, well, I don’t believe it. And polling stations can be manned by men with guns if necessary to hold back antifa intimidation. So, what do we make of the claim that Trump’s popularity is slumping with the military of all entities, while these people, who face budget cuts under Biden, then el presidente Karma, are flocking to Biden? How can that be possible when even the mainstream media are reporting that Trump’s approval rating is now back to a pre-Covid -19 high of 52 percent? Go figure. Could the mainstream degenerates be …lying? Perish forbid.

     Thus, to play on the so-called military slump we get this mainstream media story from anonymous sources saying that Trump said bad things about some soldiers, all lies, false news:

You Can be Dead, But Still Covid-19 Positive! (And Climate Change Too, for Good Measure) By Brian Simpson

     Don’t dare joke about Covid-19, even if you are not in the totalitarian state of Victoria, or Danisistan, as it is being called by wags. Why, Codaddy is so dangerous that even if you are dead, you can still test positive. It is truly the virus of the zombie apocalypse!

“A Tennessee woman died six months ago, but that didn’t stop the Shelby County Health Department from sending her a letter notifying her that she tested positive for the Chinese coronavirus and needed to self-quarantine, her bewildered son said Thursday. Troy Whittington said he was surprised when he opened the letter this week from the Shelby County Health Department. He knew what was in that letter was false. Whittington said a letter arrived from the Shelby County Health Department for his mother, Sandra Whittington. The letter says she has been diagnosed as COVID positive and needed to isolate. That would be difficult, according to her obituary: the 66-year-old died February 16th. That was weeks before the first case of COVID-19 was detected in Shelby County. “I’m just having a hard time understanding how they can say someone has COVID-19 when they are not even alive,” Whittington told the news outlet.”

Now Cross Cultural Accidental Political Correctness! By James Reed

     Now you don’t even have to say a politically incorrect word; you can say a word in another language that sounds like it, and still get smashed. Welcome to the new Dark Age of woke superstitions:

“Communications professor at the University of California’s Marshall School of Business is on a short-term break after saying a Chinese word that sounds similar to an English language racial slur. During a recent online class, Greg Patton, who is an "expert in communication, interpersonal and leadership effectiveness," according to his faculty bio, explained the usage of a Chinese filler word for “that,” comparing it to the usage of “like,” “um,” and other American filler words. On Tuesday evening, the USC Marshall School of Business provided Campus Reform with a statement, confirming that Patton is no longer teaching his course. “Recently, a USC faculty member during class used a Chinese word that sounds similar to a racial slur in English. We acknowledge the historical, cultural and harmful impact of racist language,” the statement read. Patton “agreed to take a short term pause while we are reviewing to better understand the situation and to take any appropriate next steps.” Another instructor is temporarily teaching the class. USC is now “offering supportive measures to any student, faculty, or staff member who requests assistance.” The school is “committed to building a culture of respect and dignity where all members of our community can feel safe, supported, and can thrive.”

In Defence of the Police State By Joe “the Stallion” Stalin

     Silly fellows across the world believing in dated notions like individual freedom, will ultimately be in the great wheelie bin of history. The Covid-19 pandemic has shown that democracy and the cult of individualism and liberalism do not work, and only globalist communism, in totalitarian states, like my successful USSR, can secure safety for the people who count, namely, the political/financial class. My dream of the elimination of private property, and individual freedom to create a one world government, is coming closer to truth every day, with China being the ultimate power of the future. It is off to a great start continuing Mao’s communist legacy. 

Civil War Assassinations: The BLM/Antifa Murder of Aaron Jay Danielson By Charles Taylor

     I am having a bit of trouble putting it all together, but the short of he long is that BLM/Antifa murdered a Trump supporter, with a planned assassination. Anyway, the killer who was on the run decided to fight it out with police, and was killed in a firefight. What is interesting for us, especially an Australian audience, is the video which show how all of this unfolded. The feral video puts the case that BLM/Antifa have become organised into hit squads to engage in urban terrorism much like the IRA used to do, but more sinister, since individuals are targeted because of their political beliefs. The trigger puller has been killed, but behind him is a whole network of terrorism.

     Trump has work on his hands, but he needs to stop sitting on his hands and get to work. The case is being put on various sites that once were solely concerned with intellectual issues, that civil war is inevitable:

Will the Subversive Course be Offered in Biden Land? By James Reed

     Some US universities are offering courses about how to overthrow the state, no doubt being done by Democrat supporters who do not want to go quietly into the night. But, they should be aware that what they teach may come back and bite them on the bum. Anyway, it is further evidence for my thesis that the universities are a threat to public safety and wellbeing, and need to be shut down.

“Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, is offering a course entitled “How to Overthrow the State,” which includes encouraging students to engage in “producing a Manifesto,” and “writing a persuasive essay on rewriting history and confronting memory.” A course being offered at Washington and Lee for the fall semester focuses on encouraging students to think of ways they can “overthrow a sitting government,” according to the course description on the university’s website. “This course places each student at the head of a popular revolutionary movement aiming to overthrow a sitting government and forge a better society,” reads the course description. “How will you attain power? How will you communicate with the masses? How do you plan on improving the lives of the people? How will you deal with the past?” the description adds. The course, “How to Overthrow the State,” is worth 3 credits toward an accredited college degree. Along with how to lead a revolution, students will also be studying Marxist revolutionary and assassin Che Guevara, and will be tasked with “producing a Manifesto” and “writing a persuasive essay on rewriting history.” “From Franz Fanon to Che Guevara to Mohamed Gandhi and others, we explore examples of revolutionary thought and action from across the Global South,” continues the course description. “Students engage these texts by participating in a variety of writing exercises, such as producing a Manifesto, drafting a white paper that critically analyzes a particular issue, and writing a persuasive essay on rewriting history and confronting memory,” the description adds. Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk reacted to the course, telling Breitbart News, “this is disgraceful. We must stop brushing aside these egregious examples of campus craziness as isolated incidents.” “The lessons of the past few months prove that these ideas don’t stay on campus, they spill out onto the streets,” he added. “This is a prime example of the intellectual rot that has infected the academy in America. The Trump administration should investigate and determine if this is the type of scholarship federal funds should be used to subsidize.” In July, the faculty of Washington and Lee voted to remove the name of Robert E. Lee from the university’s name. But the name-removal suggestions didn’t stop with the Confederate general. Later, Washington and Lee associate professor of law Brandon Hasbrouck argued that his peers have not taken their fight for social justice far enough, proclaiming that the school should remove George Washington’s name as well.”

Leftist Feminists Silent on China’s Genocide By James Reed

     I have found very little criticism by Australian feminists on China’s program of genocide against the Uyghur. But, if someone has the slightest transgression against feminist standards here, then the sky falls down upon them. The reason is that China, being non-white communist, is identified as all-good, while our own race and culture are intrinsically evil, even though races do not exist, unless they conveniently must for the purposes of punishment, white of course.

“An unnamed Uyghur woman who claims to have worked as a gynecologist in Xinjiang, the Chinese province that Uyghur people are native to, told the U.K.’s ITV News in an interview broadcast Wednesday that she personally sterilized women, forced them to abort children, killed infants, and tore out wombs. The woman, currently a refugee in Turkey, now works as an apparently clandestine doctor in Istanbul helping other Uyghur refugees by finding contraceptive devices they may have unknowingly had implanted and helping them assess the damage Chinese doctors may have done to their reproductive systems. The Uyghur people are an ethnic Turkic people native to East Turkestan, their name for Xinjiang province, China’s westernmost and largest region. China has waged a campaign many call genocide against them for years, escalating aggression in the past decade by forcing as many as 3 million Uyghurs and other ethnic Turkic people into concentration camps, where survivors say they endured torture, slavery, rape, and some were fitted for live organ harvesting. Chinese Communist Party officials have also bulldozed historic Uyghur sites like mosques and cemeteries or outfitted others with banners and murals praising communism. In one particularly egregious incident, the Communist Party replaced a storied Uyghur mosque with a public toilet.

The Pregnant Woman Coviddo Arrest Case By Carla Wilson

     Ian Wilson who usually writes for you is in hospital recovering from prostate surgery, but he will soon be back in the saddle, a new man, who will not know himself, I hope. So, little old me, wifey, does this one. The arrest of a pregnant woman in Victoria for incitement, has generated responses, almost all negative, from around the world, as at best, the optics are bad, at worse, some say, the arrest was illegal. Here are some comments, plus a quoted summary of the main players and critics.

“Victoria police is facing criticism for its arrest of a 28-year-old pregnant woman in her Ballarat home on Wednesday over a Facebook post, with the Victorian Bar labelling it “disproportionate”. The criticism comes after the assistant police commissioner, Luke Cornelius, defended the arrest, saying officers acted “reasonably”. Cornelius admitted that the arrest of a pregnant woman made for “terrible optics”, but defended the heavy-handed approach, warning that hundreds of officers would be deployed to make arrests on the weekend. Police arrested Ballarat resident Zoe Buhler after she created a “freedom day” event on Facebook encouraging people to protest against lockdowns in the regional town on Saturday. She was arrested and charged under section 321G of the state’s Crimes Act 1958, which makes it an offence for a person to “pursue a course of conduct which will involve the commission of an offence”. The arrest comes amid claims of misconduct by Victoria police and concerns from legal experts that Victorians in several instances were being “wrongly fined”. “Many people have been issued fines when they are not breaching public health directions,” said Ariel Couchman, the chief executive of Youthlaw. “The police aren’t making proper enquiries to determine why the person is not complying.” The president of the Victorian Bar, Wendy Harris QC, said they were concerned by Buhler’s arrest. “In the case of Ms Buhler, who was arrested and handcuffed in her home in front of her partner and children, the Bar is concerned that the enforcement action of the police … appeared disproportionate to the threat she presented,” she said. “The Victorian Bar is concerned that the enforcement response to Ms Buhler’s conduct is apparently at odds with other reported and more measured responses by authorities to organisers or promoters of similar protests planned or carried out in contravention of public health directives.” In an interview with the ABC, Buhler said she did not realise she was doing anything wrong, and the police could have given a phone call rather than arresting her.

Hairgate! Pelosi Gets Caught Out! By Charles Taylor

     Nancy Pelosi has been caught going to a beauty salon, which is supposed to be closed to the public, and all the staff have masks on but she has none. Just before she went to get her face overhauled, she attacked Trump for not having a mask. Whoa … talk about peaceful, burning riots! The main philosophical issue here, is that the elites like her, think that there is one rule for the ordinary deplorables, you and me, and no rules for them. The real divisions now are between the elites/political and financial class, and the ordinary people, the great divide.

“With exposure, the super-arrogant Pelosi turns the tables, and claims a set up and demands an apology, never mind that she diverts from her wrong doing. “Despite the desperate efforts of the mainstream media and the left's propaganda artists to suppress the story exposing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's "blow-outs for me, but not for thee" caught-in-the-act hair salon visit, she has been forced to make a public statement and face the media this afternoon to "explain." Pelosi began in typical politician manner by blaming someone else - the salon owner - for the so-called "set-up" and then "apologized" for being caught in a set-up... "I take responsibility for trusting the word of a neighborhood salon that I've been to over the years many times," Pelosi told reporters on Wednesday. "When they said they were able to accommodate people one person at a time, I trusted that. As it turns out, it was a setup." And she’s demanding an apology from the salon owner. Does Mrs. Pelosi mean she was lured to get her hair done against her will? She then slurred out some anti-Trump "but but but Trump killed hundreds of thousands" talking points that were handed her to on a paper note from an assistant before an intrepid reporter pressed the matter to which she angrily snapped: “I said, I said I’m not gonna answer. That’s all I’m gonna do! Do you have any questions about the fact that people are dying?!” Pelosi even had the audacity to claim that she had "been inundated by calls from people who work in the hair industry who have 'thanked me for bringing attention to this issue'."

A Good Reason for Preferring Christianity to the Cosmology of Atheistic Materialism By James Reed

     Know your enemy; that is an old maxim going back into the distant past. Thus, it is good for Christian readers to have an understanding of their opponents, atheistic materialism,  which sees the world as evolved, and ultimately destroyed, by purely naturalistic processes, with no God, no heaven and no hell, just John Lennon on maths.

“In the unimaginably far future, cold stellar remnants known as black dwarfs will begin to explode in a spectacular series of supernovae, providing the final fireworks of all time. That’s the conclusion of a new study, which posits that the universe will experience one last hurrah before everything goes dark forever. Astronomers have long contemplated the ultimate end of the cosmos. The known laws of physics suggest that by about 10100 (the No. 1 followed by 100 zeros) years from now, star birth will cease, galaxies will go dark, and even black holes will evaporate through a process known as Hawking radiation, leaving little more than simple subatomic particles and energy. The expansion of space will cool that energy nearly to 0 kelvin, or absolute zero, signaling the heat death of the universe and total entropy. But while teaching an astrophysics class this spring, theoretical physicist Matt Caplan of Illinois State University realized the fate of one last group of entities had never been accounted for. After exhausting their thermonuclear fuel, low mass stars like the Sun don’t pop off in dramatic supernovae; rather, they slowly shed their outer layers and leave behind a scorching Earth-size core known as a white dwarf. “They are essentially pans that have been taken off the stove,” Caplan says. “They’re going to cool and cool and cool, basically forever.”

Images of Uncivil War By Charles Taylor

     Here is footage of a Black guy, presumably BLM, sneaking up behind an innocent, oblivious White guy and hitting him in the back of the head with a brick. Probably brain damage, and another White life over, because for the multicultural Fascist system, White lives don’t matter. In fact, the attacker’s groupies said it themselves.

“Baltimore police have confirmed they’re probing a brutal attack on a white man hit in the head with a brick. The attacker appeared to have accomplices filming and laughing. However, no victim has come forward, local media report. The victim was hit in the head in the Sharp-Leadenhall neighborhood of south Baltimore on Sunday evening, police told local media, affirming the content of a disturbing video that went viral on Sunday. The victim’s assault was filmed by a group who seemed to be in league with the attacker, shooting video from across the street and laughing uproariously as the assailant’s brick connected with his quarry’s skull. The clip was originally posted to Instagram by user traysavage_, who appeared to be glorifying the assault and casting it in racial terms. “YOUNG MAN YOU GOT KNOCKED TF OUT,” he wrote, in between crying-laughing emojis. “B**CH YOU BET[TER] NOT RUN,” the post continued, adding the hashtag #WhiteLivesDoNotMatter before the more familiar #BlackLivesMatter. The victim appeared to be white and the attacker black, though neither’s faces were visible in the footage that has gone viral on social media. According to the person who called in the assault to police, the two men had an argument and the victim walked away. The attacker then reportedly picked up two bricks and ran to catch up with his prey, surprising him with an attack from behind. It’s not clear whether the victim knew his assailant before their altercation, and all police found when they turned up on the scene was a pool of blood. The attacker fled the scene after incapacitating his victim, and by some reports the victim merely got up and walked away – though it’s hard to imagine how, given the blow he sustained. Residents of Baltimore and strangers alike lamented this kind of violence was common.”
