    A list of countries supporting Ukraine in the war

    Three weeks ago, on April 19th, I compiled a list of countries that are providing Ukraine with aid. I figured it was time to provide an updated list. Countries in RED are the new additions to my list. Some of the new additions provided Ukraine with aid prior to April 19th: Albania...

    January 6th riot, the first 100 sentences

    100 of the January 6th rioters have now been sentenced, so I thought this would be an opportune time to post a summary of the sentences: I seem to have missed two people while doing my summary, so sentences for only 98 people are listed. As time passes, the charges against the people being...

    Massive Russian casualties in Ukraine

    Putin admits that 500 Russian soldiers died during the first 12 days of the Ukrainian war. It is likely that he is deliberately understating the number of casualties by a factor of 5 or 10. A more accurate figure for the number of Russian dead is at least 3,000. Russia lost 15,000 soldiers in...

    Carnage in the Russian stock market

    There was an interesting appearance yesterday by a Russian stock market analyst on Russian TV. He started off his interview by toasting the death of the Russian market: "Dear stock market: you were close to us, you were interesting, rest in peace, dear comrade." The interviewer doesn't look too...

    Alberta COVID statistics: a hypothetical scenario

    Let's assume, for the sake of argument, that the following three statements are true: (1) 99% of Albertans are triple vaccinated against COVID, (2) there are currently 1000 Albertans hospitalized with COVID, and (3) exactly 500 of the hospitalized Albertans are vaccinated, and 500 not...

    Texas voter fraud uncovered

    An interesting story out of Texas. After the November election, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick offered an award of up to one million dollars to any person who uncovered evidence of voter fraud. Well, he just made his first payment. It was made to a Democrat, who received $25,000 for proving that...

    Trump wants Republicans to boycott the 2022 and 2024 elections

    Trump just released an interesting two sentence statement on his website: "If we don't solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 (which we have thoroughly and conclusively documented), Republicans will not be voting in '22 or '24. It is the single most important thing for Republicans to...

    Mike Lindell trying to get his ads back on Fox

    Back in July, Mike Lindell got mad and pulled all his pillow ads from Fox when they refused to run an ad for his cyber symposium on election fraud. The symposium, of course, was a colossal failure, with no evidence of voter fraud presented. Lindell has reconsidered his decision to pull his...

    Fourth COVID wave worsening

    Daily new COVID cases (seven day average) in the US bottomed out around June 21. As expected, deaths bottomed out approximately two weeks later. Let's compare then to now. The numbers for yesterday will almost certainly rise, since it usually takes a few days for an accurate total to be...

    Sentences handed out to January 6th rioters

    Thus far, six of the January 6th rioters have been sentenced. Three were sentenced to jail time, two to house arrest, and one got away with probation. None of the six were accused of destroying property or attacking police officers, so the court was lenient. I suspect that, eventually, many...

    Excellent documentary: Day of Rage, how Trump supporters took the Capitol

    Today I stumbled across an excellent 40 minute documentary produced by the New York Times. It was released on July 1, and took six months of investigation to produce. They analyzed thousands of videos and produced a very detailed timeline of what happened when. The events leading up to the...

    US life expectancy for 2020

    The CDC today released preliminary life expectancy data for 2020. US life expectancy has been trending down since 2014, primarily due to obesity, drug addiction, and suicide. It increased slightly in 2018 and 2019, then plummeted by 1.5 years in 2020 because of COVID. This is the largest...

    News Headlines, by state, about COVID surge

    A few random headlines from newspaper articles from the last two days about the surge in COVID cases all through the United States (the number of COVID cases increased in 44 states over the past week, as opposed to 28 states the previous week): Tennessee ranks No. 1 in the U.S. for largest...

    POV: The Neutral Ground

    I'm halfway through watching an excellent documentary called "The Neutral Ground" that was on PBS yesterday. I recommend the show highly. It should be repeated on your local PBS station two or three times over the next five days, so don't fret if you missed it. I believe those of you who live...

    Fox News now in third place after CNN and MSNBC

    For most of the past 20 years, Fox News has had the highest viewership of the news channels. That has apparently changed since the November election. The average daytime viewership so far this month (January, 2021): 2.08 million - CNN 1.74 million - MSNBC 1.41 million - Fox News whereas...

    Mr President: Stop the Insanity, You Lost - New York Post

    There was an excellent editorial in the New York Post, telling Trump to "give it up". If Trump has lost the support of a right wing tabloid like the Post, then the election is truly over. A link to the editorial and some highlights below. Mr. President: Stop the Insanity, you lost THE POST...
