  • Oil platform workers rescue a dog in a mindbendingly unbelievable place and take wonderful care of it. (H/T MtK)
  • This dog rescue, on the other hand, evokes Stephen King. (Also H/T MtK)
  • And since we’ve already added a creepy factor to our “lite” links, consider this: Dentistry is much less scientific than we’ve learned to think.

Saturday Links

I hope your weekend is off to a good start. Here is a collection of posts from the week I found interesting.

The NOQ Report starts us off with Murder of sexually harassed Bangladeshi student Nusrat Jahan Rafi goes unnoticed by the left.

The Pirate’s Cove – Goal Posts: It’s Not The Collusion, It’s The Corruption Or Something.

The Other McCain asks Who Is Funding Anti-Semitism?

One of the most remarkable claims the Left has made recently is that criticism of George Soros is an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory. Yet it is not a theory, but a matter of fact that Soros is an enemy of Israel, and that the left-wing billionaire has funded efforts to undermine Jewish conservatives and sabotage critics of radical Islam.

We get a lot from Ace (of Ace of Spades HQ) this week – The “Canadian Pharmacy” Canard: Does It Fly?

It really is a perfect government program. It drives up the cost of the products produced, while other parts of the government are conspiring to drive down the price charged by the producer. If I didn’t know any better, I would think that there is some plan to drive these companies out of business.

Again from Ace – Ilhan Omar Pulls Rote Social Justice Warrior Move and Begins Crying “I’m Being Threatened;” Nancy Pelosi Demands That Twitter… Delete a Donald Trump Tweet Which She Claims is a “Dangerous” Incitement.

And again from The Other McCain – War Between Bernie and the Clinton Machine Going Thermonuclear.

Schneier on Security – Vulnerabilities in the WPA3 Wi-Fi Security Protocol Since the WiFi committee or group or whatever it is, refuses to hire outside cryptographers, and continues to get security wrong, I have to ask, “Are they working for the NSA, or someone else who just hates security?”

Chicks on the Right – Bernie Releases His Tax Returns, There’s One Thing Everyone Immediately Noticed. He gives virtually no money to charity (less than 2 percent some years) despite making over a million dollars per year.

Flopping Aces – Not everyone thinks the burning of Notre Dame is a tragedy. Some are reveling.

Just One Minute – Two Weeks Too Late. The NY Slimes thinks everyone’s tax info should be public.

Shall Not Be Questioned has A Handy Guide on Where to Bank. OK, so its a week or more old… It is good info, and I make the rules.

The Silicon Graybeard – SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy Wasn’t A Perfect Day After All. The central booster was lost to “rough seas” that didn’t look all that rough to me.

Weasel Zippers – Democrats Rushing To Stop Sanders From Winning Primary…. It’s deja vous all over again.

The last entry from Ace of Ace of Spades HQ – Andrew C. McCarthy: Robert Mueller Violated Prosecutorial Standards By Smearing Trump Without the Evidence For an Actual Criminal Charge.

The New Jovian Thunderbolt – Bonnie and Clyde On the Netflix movie The Highwaymen. I think it is superb.

Gun Free Zone believes that Progressives are out to destroy Dallas. Personally I don’t think they want to stop with Dallas.

Saturday Links

The Silicon Graybeard starts us off this week with One of the Oldest Electronics Jokes Sorta Comes to Life The Dark-emitting Diode comes to life? Almost.

Old AF Sarge from Chant du Départ asks… Guilty? On the subject of War Crimes…

A war crime is a crime, regardless of the war criminal’s usefulness to the victors. Otherwise, prosecution for war crimes is simply a vindictive exercise by the victorious power meant to punish the defeated. Consistency is important, otherwise the wrong message is sent.

Power Line – UPS Won’t Go I thought No-go zones were a myth. The Left keeps saying that!

The transport company UPS no longer runs packages in Rosengård in Malmö, for security reasons. Postnord [Swedish Post Office] does not deliver packages to another area in Malmö, Seved.

The Pirate’s Cove – Democrats Meltdown Over Barr Spying Claims.

And again from The Pirate’s Cove – Washington Post Editorial Board Has A Plan For Dealing With Border Crisis They Said Didn’t Exist.

Don Surber – Washington Post believes it has a right to smear a 16-year-old.

The Victory Girls – White House To Screen Gosnell Movie Today And The Media Throws A Fit.

No Lawyers, Only Guns and Money – Poor Shannon – The Internet Never Forgets.

The bottom line is that every time you hear Shannon Watts dancing in the blood of crime victims in her efforts to push gun control “for the children” remember her background. She’s an expert at pushing the narrative and the only narrative that really matters is the one that personally benefits her the most.

Political Clown Parade – Candace Owens Versus A Manipulative Little Weasel.

The Other McCain – Jew-Haters Hold Pro-Hamas Conference in North Carolina — at Taxpayer Expense!

Support for the terrorist Hamas regime in Gaza and demonization of Israel were major themes of a three-day conference last month at the University of North Carolina entitled, “Conflict Over Gaza: People, Politics and Possibilities.”
