A geophysicist, Cheng Shengzao, with the USGS, said the East Coast quake was surprising.
“This is wild. It’s not often that this happens,” Shengzao said.
A 3.3 magnitude earthquake hit just east of Dover in 1879, according to the Delaware Geological Survey.
Gee, earthquakes don’t happen often in Delaware. Can we blame fracking? No. Due to a slump in oil price, the Marcellus Shale Gas Formation has seen a steep decline in fracking activity. But the windmill construction boom continues unabated. Read more
For all human history human beings have eaten fat. We’ve thrived doing so. We’ve spread out over the earth while eating fat. Everywhere we’ve gone we’ve encountered animals who also eat fat. This has been going on for a long time. You know, since like day 6.
Then all of a sudden in the 20th century Science declares that fat is bad for you. Science commands any animal who has will power over what he eats, which is only humans, to stop eating fat. Read more
The Boston Globe reported that CIS male Babson students (a microaggression) drove around the Wellesley college campus in a pickup truck (a microaggression ) waving a Trump flag… a MEGA AGGRESSION!!!!
By the way, the Globe authors of this article presume the gender of the entire Wellesley college by calling it an “elite all-women campus.” It’s not just women. Genders at Wellesley run the full gamut — except for CIS male.

Liberals want to blame the oil and gas industry for the Oklahoma earthquake swarm. But in doing so they expose their own ignorance. Again.
First they threw around the word fracking. It was an easy accusation to make. Fracking caused the Oklahoma earthquakes. The word fracking just sounds so nasty. Fracking. It’s like a swear word almost. You could substitute it for the f-word at Bible camp.
And anyone with a cursory knowledge of drilling for oil would know that fracking is short for hydraulic fracturing. It’s where they pump water and sand down a hole to break open rocks underground to extract oil.
So it’s an easy conclusion for the ignorant to jump to. Of course hydraulically fracturing rocks underground causes earthquakes!
Earthquake destruction in Pawnee Oklahoma. Thanks, windmills. (image via J Berry III)
Today a 5.6 magnitude earthquake struck Oklahoma, centered in Pawnee county, and was felt in several states. This earthquake caused a huge problem, not for dilapidated trailer-hoods or endangered prairie chickens, but for tree-hugging liberals.
The Oil Boom is over! Why are there still earthquakes in Oklahoma?
They blamed fracking for the Oklahoma Earthquake Swarm that began in 2009. But now crude oil sits under $50 a barrel. Nobody’s fracking! Read more
I cannot believe the Patriots lost! Where is justice? Is there any justice here on earth when a team a noble as the New England Patriots suffers the scorn of scoundrels and the slander of bitter fools? Read more
Windmills cause earthquakes. That’s the bold statement I made in a recent bombshell article that made the rounds and generated a lot of buzz.
Lots of people took to the comments to pish-posh the idea that windmills could generate enough force to move the earth’s crust. They said I should go back to school and learn science so I’d join them in blaming fracking.
Hold on there! Why am I stupid for thinking something man-made such as windmills cause earthquakes but you’re a genius for concluding that the made-made act of fracking does the same?
Look, I can make a powerful argument about how windmills cause earthquakes. I can back it up with charts, maps, and data. What I don’t have is a huge government grant to fund my research. But with help from feedingjimmy.com readers, we can create a barrage of sensationalistic and misleading headlines on social media to vilify the windmill industry.
But is it true? Do windmills actually cause earthquakes?
It doesn’t matter. I made the accusation. Now it’s up to them to disprove it. And until they do, we need to shut down all windmill construction. That’s the way it works, guys.
Anyways, here’s my plausible windmill-earthqake theory. Read more
Howard Stern made big news in the radio world last week when he finally signed a new deal with SiriusXM in the waning moments of his previous contract. The noteworthy aspect of the deal was not the money, which was reported to be like $80 million over 5 years or something. It was the pathetic role internet radio played in the negotiations. Read more
Guys, I have another dispatch from my long distance AM radio adventures. Last night as I rolled up route 18 in New Mexico heading into Hobbs, I locked on to 850 KOA out of Denver, and I heard something I haven’t heard for a long time out of a radio: a traffic report. Read more
Guys, I’m sitting here in Artesia, New Mexico waiting on standby. I’m just doing some distance AM listening to kill the time and I pulled in 1110 KFAB from Omaha, Nebraska.
Amazing right? But not only did I pull in a broadcast from a long distance, I got a show from a long time ago.
They’re playing Art Bell’s Somewhere in Time, which rebroadcasts episodes from the radio hall-of-famer’s archives.
Today the rebroadcast was from a show originally aired in June 1996 in the midst of the Ken Star investigation. The guest was Rodger Morris, the author of Partners in Power, about Mr. and Mrs. Clinton. He and Mr. Bell recounted the rise to power and the criminal activities of the Clintons. Then they opined about the future of the couple and wondered if they could escape conviction and win reelection.
What an amazing time capsule! You’d just have to listen to the show yourself. On one hand you laugh at the naive sentiment we held twenty years ago, but you also cringe at the disasters we were walking right into. Read more
Black Friday 2015. I’m sitting here in my secure surplus military bunker as the carnage unfolds at our nation’s walmarts. This bunker has wifi, so I’m able to access drudgereport.com to stay updated on the Black Friday casualties. It’s like a tradition around here.
Kids, stop running around the bunker! Or I’ll send you to Walmart to buy a flatscreen!
Guys, remember what your Uncle said yesterday at Thanksgiving Dinner? He said, “Welp, today is the day we’re thankful for all we have. Tomorow is the day we fight for what we don’t need.”
Some people right now are like, “How did you know my Uncle said that. You weren’t there.”
Guys, your uncle says that every thanksgiving. Every uncle says that every thanksgiving.
But nobody says it better than America’s Uncle, Eddie Fitzgerald. On his blog, Uncle Eddie’s Theory Corner, he has a picto-cartoon storyboard-script about Black Friday. Check it out here.
So happy Black Friday, everyone. Get your flatscreen before you get flattened!
George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation of 1789 (via mountvernon.org)
Happy Thanksgiving, guys. I hope you’re having a good time with your friends and family. Perhaps you’re rattling off all the things you’re thankful for. That’s what this holiday is all about, right? To be thankful. And thankfully, we don’t need to think too hard to come up with a cornucopia of wonderful things that we Americans enjoy.
I just got one question. To whom are you thankful?
You grammar police are thankful I phrased this question correctly. I said “to whom are you thankful?” rather than “who are you thankful to?” Well, with that, I’m thankful I don’t have the grammar police harping on me right now.
So let’s continue using correct grammar, shall we? Read more
