We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

" “Human Trafficking, Child Abuse, & Drug Smuggling Are Rampant” In Border Crisis"
And it's all happening on orders of the DNC...
"Parler Just Flipped Big Tech's Jan. 6 Conspiracy Theory on Its Head"....."The company’s press release connected the dots."
The headline neatly provokes the unasked question, which then goes both unasked and unanswered in the article. If Parler wants a triumph in declaring the wrongness of its critics, and if the evidence was in hand before January 6th, why on earth didn't they disclose this when it could have helped deflate the storm of contrived criticism on the January 6th protest - and maybe even recover Parlor's business model by delivering a black eye to their Big Tech villains?
The second problem is, why is a supposedly-conservative-stalwart PJ Media leaving this question unaddressed? This is quite a good example of sloppy and incomplete reporting - unless you're with the Uni-Party.
So the Southwest pilot is in trouble for daring to speak the truth, eh???

And remember ZH got banned from Twitter for spreading "misinformation" because they dared to ask questions. You're not allowed to question the narrative, even if the narrative changes from day to day.

Always assume incompetence before spreading conspiracy theories.
If you don't you're just shown to be incompetent yourself.
The vessel was under the pilot's direction. There were strong winds that day, and the sail area presented by a fully-stacked, 1300 ft container vessel is enormous. The straight, narrow, shallow canal is the worst possible scenario for exposure to an errant force of nature - and if a strong wind were blowing anything close to beam-on, it's easy to see how quickly one would run out of room to correct for it. I wonder if they will adopt rules for accompanying tugs for the larger ships now, just to give them a bit of thrust when things get out of hand..
If they really want to bring better justice to Title IX then get rid of Title IX and leave justice to the court system. Anything else is just weaponizing gender by a nazified university administration.
The Corona virus was set "free" at last when russia, russia, russia didn't work and ukraine, ukraine, ukraine, failed. US health officials worked with Chinese "health" officials. They each had much to gain if Trump and Trumpsters lost power. The election cheat was planned well in advance but was executed poorly and was seen by all who cared to look. Treasonous bastards.
The Corona virus dramatically helped China both economically and in terms of taking more world power. It also dramatically helped the Democrats both economically and in terms of taking more power. Coincidence! I think not.
ON a very related note; there is a countdown until China takes Taiwan in a sudden and massive attack. It will likely necessitate the sinking of a few American ships possibly even an aircraft carrier. Now is the time. The world is distracted, China is positioned, our military is standing down so they can become more feminine and diverse and America is lead by a doddering old fool. China's calculation is that we will not do anything serious in retaliation or even if we do that we won't do anything that they can't absorb easily. Sleepy Joe is going to destroy our country.
Color me skeptical, if for no other reason that China lacks enough heavy lift capability to pull off sudden and massive.
Instead, they'll do it via gradual escalation, counting on U.S. distraction/indifference/incompetence.
The Democrats are now openly advocating the support of deadbeats on the backs of the working people. That's how you buy votes on the cheap.
Her is a young man who truly was a hero. Watch the video and be prepared to be impressed.
