Hundreds of never-before-seen nuclear blast videos show terrifying explosions in the ocean and Nevada desert

The US government detonated hundreds of above-ground nuclear explosions from 1945 to 1963 — until the first nuclear test-ban treaty was signed. Now a team has rescued thousands of classified films that were kept in high-security storage.

There are several videos included in the article. Here’s the link to 497 other videos: LLNL Atmospheric Nuclear Tests

Open Thread and a Rant

Every single day begins with them forgetting that the progressive political ops center has tricked and used them every single day of the last two years.

At some point, it has to be recognized that no one, no matter how stupid, can be “tricked” by the same trick every single fucking day.

At some point, it has to be recognized that these people are not being “Tricked” at all, but are knowing collaborators with the progressive political operations machine.

This is in reference to ‘RINOs’ like John McStain, and Jeff the Flake, just to name two…

July 4, 1776: The Declaration of Independence Annotated (Updated) – Bookworm Room

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

[Britain attempted to do this on more than one occasion in colonial history, but by 1776, this indictment probably only referred to the Massachusetts Government Act, also a part of the Intolerable Acts. By this law, the King unilaterally abrogated the charter governing the colony, in all but name did away with representative democracy, going so far as to outlaw town meetings not pre-approved. This was a clear warning to all of the other colonies that they needed to submit to British demands or Britain would impose martial law upon them. The colonists chose a third option.]

Hey, Democrats, The System Doesn’t Need To Be ’Fixed’ Every Time You Lose An Election

The arrogance of the age — maybe every age — is that intellectuals believe, by default, that they’re smarter, more moral, and more evolved than those who came before them. We often hear the Left gripe about the antiquated nature of the Constitution. It was Klein, after all, who once claimed that the Constitution was confusing document because it is old.

The Founding Fathers… geniuses they were!

The 1911 Heat Wave Was So Deadly It Drove People Insane

Ice and electric fans were luxuries, air conditioning unknown. Pedestrians fainted from the stifling heat. At night, the streets were filled with exhausted mothers walking up and down, trying to comfort their crying babies. They feared leaving them in their beds, lest they fail to wake up.  One police officer described the night during the 1911 heat wave as a ‘giant wail.

This is before man was causing ‘global warming’ or ‘climate change’ by releasing CO2 into the atmosphere.

When The Left Uses Civility As A Weapon, Drop It And Fight Back

The detail that conservatives tend to forget is that when one party violates a contract, the other party is no longer bound by all of its terms. If you sign a contract to buy a car, and the dealer refuses to turn it over you, you aren’t “sinking to their level” by refusing to hand over your money. If you contract an employee who never shows up for work, you aren’t “repaying evil for evil” by withholding his wages. The same is true when dealing with people who are deliberately uncivil to civil people — it fundamentally changes what the rest of society owes them.

In other words, the aggressor makes the rules. We don’t ‘stoop to their level’ by fighting aggression by their rules.
