Rare wolverine spotted in California,
second confirmed specimen in a century
Posted by NorthernDog 6/4/2023 7:47:20 PM Post Reply
A wild wolverine was spotted multiple times in California last month, only the second specimen to be verified by experts in the past century, according to the state Department of Fish and Wildlife. Over a two-week period in May, the wolverine was reported twice in Inyo National Forest and once in Yosemite National Park. Photos and video of the animal were analyzed by U.S. Forest Service experts, who confirmed it was the same creature due to its body proportions, coloration and movement. "Wolverines can travel great distances, making it likely that the recent sightings are all of the same animal
Private Cessna jet crashes in Virginia

Pentagon to scramble fighter jets to intercept

A small plane that flew over a restricted area of Washington DC likely prompted the Pentagon to scramble an interceptor fighter jet Sunday afternoon. The private Cessna jet from Elizabethton, Tennessee appeared unresponsive as it came close to both the US Capitol building and the White House at around 3.30pm, Federal Aviation Administration officials say. The aircraft was on its way to Long Island, New York, but once it reached its destination, it turned around and headed back to Washington DC, flight paths show. A source familiar with the situation told Reuters it appeared to be on autopilot at the time.

The Department of Defense scrambled fighter jets to intercept a private jet that entered Washington DC airspace and later crashed into mountainous terrain in southwest Virginia, officials said. The F-16s caused a sonic boom that shook houses across the US Capital at around 3pm as they took off from Andrews Air Force Base in high speed pursuit of the Cessna Citation, a US official told Reuters. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) told The Independent the aircraft had taken off from Tennessee bound for New York but had crashed into a sparsely populated area near Staunton, about 150 miles southwest of

California appears to be presenting the green movement with yet another reality check. Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom has set forth arguably the country's most ambitious state-level plan to transition from fossil fuel to renewable energy. However, when California's almost inevitable heat waves come in the summer and residents crank up their home air conditioners, officials turn on massive diesel-powered generators to make up for the state’s energy shortfall and to avoid rolling blackouts.

Now you know exactly why Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had to launch without any public appearances in his home state, and run away from the state of Florida immediately thereafter. This doesn’t take any commentary to understand. President Trump is beating Ron DeSantis in the state that knows the Florida Governor best. Trump 52.5%, DeSantis 32.6%. This should be embarrassing for Ron and Jill ‘Casey’ DeSantis, but their hubris will just ignore it.
Manchin on Third-Party Presidential Run:

Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that he was “not ruling anything in, not ruling anything out” when questioned about whether he would consider a third-party presidential run. Anchor Shannon Bream said, “You have not ruled it out and taken off the table, is a third-party run in the realm of possibilities?” Manchin said, “You better have Plan B because if Plan A shows that we’re going to the far reaches of both sides, the far left and the far right, and that people don’t want to go to the far left and the far right, they want to be governed from the middle.
Brief Covid mRNA Injection Update replies

You may have heard recently that most adults—80%—are not getting boosted with mRNA injections. The CDC is recommending that everyone get shot up, while admitting that duration of supposed “effectiveness” isn’t great: Most US adults are declining COVID boosters as CDC warns of health risks: 'Relatively little protection' Hospitalization risk exists as only 20% of US adults receive booster dose: ‘Uptake has been quite low’ The claim, as usual, is that these injections offer protection against the most severe outcomes. Interestingly, the CDC conducted a self-experiment—unintentionally. I’m guessing they didn’t expect this outcome:

In about twelve weeks, 2024 Republican hopefuls will have the opportunity to square off in the first party-sanctioned debate of the 2024 cycle. On Friday, the Republican National Committee rolled out its criteria for qualifying for the verbal bout, prompting some to gear up for the battle and others to scramble for ways to boost their standing so they can make it onto the debate stage. To qualify, hopefuls must routinely poll about 1% in either an early state poll and two national polls, or in at least three national polls. They will also be required to accrue donations from a minimum of 40,000 donors. Additionally, contenders must sign

federal court ruling likely to drop this month should provide a good indication as to whether America still has a fully functioning First World justice system. The case, involving an investigation from New York Attorney General Letitia James into the supposed mismanagement of controversial news outlet, has received zero media coverage so far, despite it being as crude, brutish, and nakedly political as James’ other lawfare campaigns (notably against former President Trump and the NRA). In fact, it’s arguably worse, as it was clearly designed to dox VDare’s writers and volunteers and bankrupt the tiny outlet out of existence.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky admitted that he is afraid of a possible return of Donald Trump to the White House in 2024, before begging for more American-made Patriot missile systems. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, President Volodymyr Zelensky admitted he has concerns about the possible re-election of Donald Trump next year, saying that he was unsure how exactly the Republican leader would have reacted had Russia invaded during his presidency. The Ukrainian head-of-state also praised the response of the Biden administration, which has regularly handed over billions of dollars worth of weapons aid to the Eastern European nation since Moscow’s invasion began last year.

The “trans” lobby claims that genital mutilation of minors is necessary in order to prevent troubled teenagers from committing suicide. To my knowledge, there is no empirical basis for this claim, and suicide rates among those who have undergone sex change surgery are sky-high. But the claim persists, nevertheless. Now, it turns out that one of the key “studies” relied on to support sex change procedures has been withdrawn. (Snip) Integrity in published research has been on a downhill slide for some time.

Is Arming Teachers Practical? replies

The most obvious response to school shootings is to allow teachers and other employees who are licensed to carry firearms to do so. Would-be mass murderers are drawn to schools largely because they are usually “gun-free zones,” which means the shooter’s gun will be the only one on the scene. But some have questioned whether many teachers would actually be willing to arm themselves, so as to make this a practical solution. The Rand Corporation conducted a nationwide survey of nearly 1,000 teachers, which is reported on by Catrin Wigfall. Most teachers are liberals these days–no surprise, given the far-left orientation of universities’ education programs and the teachers’ unions.

A Delta flight heading to Detroit, Michigan was forced to make an emergency landing on a remote Canadian island after an unruly passenger broke free of his restraints. The 34-year-old traveler was allegedly being 'violent' on the flight and 'wouldn't calm down' on the trip from Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris, France. He was restrained by airline staff but managed to break free before five to six passengers jumped in to restrain him again. The captain took an emergency diversion six hours into the flight and landed at Stephenville Dymond Airport on the Canadian island of Newfoundland at around 3.35pm. The man was then arrested by the Royal Mounted Police

Hey Look! Proof Democrats Doctored J6 Evidence replies

The House Select Committee to Investigate Jan. 6, led by Democrats, manipulated key evidence, according to an investigation by Just the News. Since the actual evidence wasn’t enough for them to convey the narrative they wanted to present, Democrats added audio to silent security footage from the U.S. Capitol Police to create a dramatic video montage for the opening of their primetime hearings last summer. This isn’t surprising. The committee, which was entirely handpicked by Nancy Pelosi, was never concerned with an objective presentation of facts. In fact, we’ve known since 2021 that the committee doctored text messages to make them look incriminating.

The child exploiters at Disney are looking at another potential flop with Pixar’s poorly reviewed Elemental. How’s your Pride Month going, groomers? The perverts and fetishists at Disney reportedly dumped $200 million into this sucker and will likely spend another $100 to $150 million on a useless promotion campaign. The result…? Well, the result is glorious. Elemental is predicted to open on June 16 somewhere between $31 and $41 million. Ultimately, Box Office Pro says it could fail to pass $100 million. Best case, it hits $167 million domestic. Unless the same overseas audience currently rejecting that stupid Little Mermaid remake powers Elemental to an additional $400 to $500 million,
