Kim Strassel's video "The Intimidation Game" restricted by youtube. I've posted it here.

YouTube has restricted Kim Strassel’s PragerU short course on The Intimidation Game. It’s almost like they want to prove her point. In a separate tweet, Kim explains that her video “is restricted for any young people with parental controls” as well as “schools and libraries.” Consider it a preview of the next Clinton administration, when Citizens United is to be reversed and “electioneering communication” restricted in the name of campaign finance law, the express text of the First Amendment to the contrary notwithstanding.

UK scientists recreated Neanderthal man, who looks just like Chuck Norris

Chuck Norris or a Neanderthal? Or all of the above?
A team of scientists has created what it believes is the first really accurate reconstruction of Neanderthal man, from a skeleton that was discovered in France over a century ago.

In 1909, excavations at La Ferrassie cave in the Dordogne unearthed the remains of a group of Neanderthals. One of the skeletons in that group was that of an adult male, given the name La Ferrassie 1.
