Magnificent Monday Motes

Proof there is no life in outer space; the US isn’t sending them $$$. And John Kerry hasn’t gone to visit them about climate change.

He can see the future: Biden traveled to his hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania on Wednesday to pitch his Build Back Better bill that is currently on life support. Joe Biden boasted his plan would take millions of automobiles off the road. “We will take, literally, millions of automobiles off the road. Off the road,” said Biden of his radical Marxist green agenda. He’s right, since nobody will have a job and gas will be $15 a gallon, all them cars will magically disappear.

An answer: Syria has executed 24 people after convicting them on terrorism charges for igniting last year’s devastating wildfires, leaving three people dead and burning thousands of hectares (acres) of forests, the Justice Ministry said Thursday. The publicized executions of a large group of people is rare. A statement issued by the Justice Ministry Thursday said those executed a day earlier were “criminals who carried out terrorist attacks that led to deaths and damage to state infrastructure and public and private property through the use of flammable material.” It said 11 others were sentenced to life in prison in the same case. Hey Calipornia, wanta stop those wildfires?

Doing what they do: In a YouTube clip posted Tuesday a protective pachyderm stomped a crocodile to death in a rare attack recorded on a cellphone. The mama elephant put her foot down when a predator got too close to her calf at a watering spot in Zambia. The proximity of a crocodile put the mother on high alert. She began trampling it and even coiled her trunk around the croc’s tail. Elephants can lift up to 770 pounds with their trunks. The tons of crushing pressure from the elephant “resulted in the inevitable death” of the crocodile. Hans Henrik Haahr, the videographer on safari who captured the moment, called the attack was “shocking.” Momma Elephant was doing what mother’s do, protect their young, nothing “shocking” about it.

Very interesting: The new head of Israel’s storied foreign intelligence agency recently sent a stern directive to its former senior intelligence officials: “Keep your mouths shut until I say you can open them”. According to a veteran intelligence reporter for the independent Israeli daily Haaretz, Barnea warned former senior Mossad officials that he would punish anyone who speaks to the media, either on or off the record, about current or past Israeli spy operations without his prior permission. Imagine that an intelligence agency that keeps their actions secret. Pretty good concept. Other agencies should do the same.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, all men are created equalthat they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
