• Pre-Columbian Era
    Indigenous Inhabitants: Patagonia was originally inhabited by several indigenous groups, including the Mapuche, Tehuelche, and Selk'nam (Ona). These groups had rich cultural traditions and adapted to the diverse and often harsh environments of the region.
    Archaeological Evidence: Sites like Cueva de las Manos, with its ancient hand paintings, provide evidence of human presence dating back thousands of years.
    European Exploration and Colonization
    Ferdinand Magellan: The Portuguese explorer, sailing for Spain, was the first European to navigate the strait that now bears his name, the Strait of Magellan, in 1520.
    Sir Francis Drake: The English privateer navigated the southern tip of South America via the Drake Passage in the late 16th century.
    Early Settlements: European settlements began to establish in the 19th century, primarily driven by explorers, missionaries, and later settlers looking for new land.
    Modern Era
    Territorial Disputes: During the 19th and early 20th centuries, Argentina and Chile had several disputes over the boundaries of Patagonia, which were eventually resolved through treaties and arbitration.
    Economic Development: The region's economy historically relied on sheep farming, but tourism, oil extraction, and natural gas production have become significant economic drivers.
    Geography of Patagonia
    Patagonia is renowned for its dramatic and diverse landscapes, which include:

    The Andes Mountains
    Western Patagonia: Characterized by the southern Andes, this area includes:
    Glaciers: Such as Perito Moreno Glacier.
    Lakes: Including Lake Argentino and Lake Nahuel Huapi.
    Fjords and Temperate Rainforests: Found in the coastal areas of Chilean Patagonia.
    Eastern Patagonia
    Steppes and Deserts: The Patagonian steppe is a vast, arid plateau that stretches across much of the region. It's known for its dry, windy conditions and sparse vegetation.
    Tablelands: Elevated, flat areas that are a significant feature of the Patagonian landscape.
    Coastal Regions
    Pacific Coast: Features dramatic fjords and is less populated due to its rugged terrain and challenging climate.
    Atlantic Coast: Home to significant wildlife reserves, including Península Valdés, known for its marine life like whales, seals, and penguins.
    Southern Patagonia
    Tierra del Fuego: An archipelago at the southern tip of South America, divided between Argentina and Chile, known for its rugged landscapes and Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world.
    Strait of Magellan: A natural passage between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
    Beagle Channel: Another significant navigational route.
    Drake Passage: The body of water between South America's southern tip and Antarctica, known for its rough seas.
    Climate
    Varied Climates: Ranges from the humid, temperate climates of the western fjords and rainforests to the arid, windy steppes of the east.
    Glacial Influence: The presence of numerous glaciers influences the climate, particularly in the southern Andes.
    Flora and Fauna
    Unique Ecosystems: Includes diverse species such as guanacos, rheas, Andean condors, and a variety of marine life.
    Protected Areas: National parks like Torres del Paine in Chile and Los Glaciares in Argentina protect vast tracts of wilderness and are popular destinations for ecotourism.
    Human Geography
    Population Centers: Major cities include Bariloche, Comodoro Rivadavia, and Río Gallegos in Argentina, and Punta Arenas in Chile.
    Economic Activities: Sheep farming, oil and gas extraction, fishing, and increasingly, tourism, particularly ecotourism and adventure tourism.
    Patagonia's history and geography combine to create a region of stunning natural beauty, rich cultural heritage, and significant economic importance. Its vast, unspoiled landscapes continue to draw adventurers, nature lovers, and those interested in its unique cultural and historical background.

  • OUR DAILY OLDIES: WHEN I STARTED THIS SECTION, I PROMISED OLDIES AND RARITIES FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD. IN THE 1960s WE HAD A BRITISH INVASION IN AMERICA. MANY OF THE TOP 40 MOST POPULAR SONGS IN RADIO WERE BY BRITISH GROUPS AND PERFORMERS, THE BEATLES BEING IN THE FIRST PLACES. ALONG WITH THE BRITISH, A FEW, NOT MANY GROUPS, FROM OTHER EUROPEAN COUNTRIES HAD AT LEAST ONE HIT SONG IN AMERICAN RADIO, LIKE 'LOS BRAVOS' FROM SPAIN WITH 'BLACK IS BLACK' OR 'SHOCKING BLUE' FROM THE NEDERLANDS WITH 'VENUS', BUT BEYOND THAT, WE DIDN'T KNOW MUCH FROM THE MUSICAL WORLD IN THE REST OF THE WORLD, PROBABLY BECAUSE OF LANGUAGE DIFFERENCES UNTIL 1967 WITH THE SUCCESS OF MIRIAM MAKEBA FROM SOUTH AFRICA WHO OPENED THE WAY FOR MORE AFRICAN PERFORMERS. IN EUROPE IT WASN'T A BRITISH INVASION BUT THEY CALLED "THE PRODIGIOUS DECADE" WHEN THE BEST MUSIC OF ALL TIMES WAS PRODUCED IN MULTIPLE COUNTRIES. THERE WERE VERY GOOD EUROPEAN GROUPS THAT NEVER MADE IT TO AMERICAN RADIO, PROBABLY BECAUSE OF LANGUAGE DIFFERENCES. ONE OF THOSE GROUPS THAT MADE GREAT ROCK AND ROLL WAS 'LOS HURACANES' FROM SPAIN AND TODAY I'M GIVING YOU A SAMPLE OF THEIR MUSIC. ENJOY IT!

    Seattle museum staff walks out over ‘platforming colonial, white supremacist perspectives’ in exhibit organized by black, Asian, Jewish groups
    “It sets a dangerous precedent of platforming colonial, white supremacist perspectives and goes against the Museum’s mission as a community-based museum advancing racial and social equity.”

  • NEW: We encountered groups of men from the Middle East & Asia as they crossed illegally into Jacumba, CA at 2AM, including men from Iran, Pakistan, China, Turkey, India, & Bangladesh. There were no Mexicans in the groups. Several of the men are “special interest aliens”, meaning they come from countries with potential security concerns & *should* be subject to additional DHS vetting.
    This location is about an hour east of San Diego, as Border Patrol’s San Diego sector has moved to #1 for illegal crossings at the southern border in recent weeks for the first time since the 1990s. (46 seconds)

  • Weapons of Mass Migration | NEW Documentary
    https://www.theepochtimes.com/epochtv/weapons-of-mass-migration-5640408?est=AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAc%2BEkeh0J2pCYvpMDrWsXCLt3euFThIsZ7njlOgysV3MoCA%3D%3D
    Over 7.2 million illegal immigrants have entered the United States since President Joe Biden came into office. This record border crisis is not organic, behind it are official policies, heavy financing, and agreements between the U.S. government and the United Nations.
    The world is watching different pieces of this unfold, with video of groups of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States, not trying to evade border patrol, but rather waiting to be arrested. What is being left out of the discussion is: Why?
    This Epoch Original Documentary “Weapons of Mass Migration” exposes how the United States and United Nations work hand-in-hand to facilitate mass migration, which is being weaponized to destroy America.
    Directed and hosted by Joshua Philipp, senior investigative reporter and host of EpochTV’s “Crossroads,” he sets out to investigate what is really taking place behind the border crisis and why is it being carried out.
    The investigative journey takes him deep into the jungles of Panama, into the migrant camps in the mouth of the infamous Darien Gap, which is known as one of the most dangerous places in the world, through United Nations facilities, and alongside the programs being used to process and facilitate mass migration at the U.S.-Mexico border. Get ready for never-before-seen footage that reveals how the border crisis is manufactured and highly organized.
    As the border crisis gets worse by the day, it is not just impacting local communities and towns near the border, but also communities far away. Immigration is the top issue that Americans are concerned about [1]. This documentary is part of the “America at a Crossroads with Joshua Philipp” investigative docu-series into the most important issues of the 2024 election.
