SPACE: Leaving the Launch Pad

Yeaaaah, it’s not one of the best vegetables known to Earthlings. However, it does generate a heck of a lot of gas… Good call.

How it’s done in space…

Scott Campbell: “Ashfall”: An unsung disaster epic that bravely played Hollywood at its own game and did it better erupts on Netflix … This is actually no longer available on Netflex. However, it is accessible for ‘free’ via the streaming service FreeVee (formerly IMDb) and if you have Amazone Prime FreeVee is streamed through that server. It’s dubbed in English, but the tedious dialog still translates as tedious in any language. I found it not-so entertaining about halfway into it and not thrilled by the end. It’s no “Volcano” or “Dante’s Peak”.

A real must watch reel is “Train to Busan”, also streaming on FreeVee. It too is a Korean film, but much faster paced and with better characters. Right up there with Brad Pitt’s “World War Z” (streaming on Netflix) on a smaller and more intimate scale…

Watching “The Last of Us”?…

Saturday Newsfeed: Biden Deflections in F*** Major

NYPost: Blathering Biden’s suspicious silences say everything

And when he does speak he lies in the face of the empirical evidence…

Chris Pandolfo: Biden denies $1M in payments to family from Hunter associate, despite bank records: ‘Not true’ … ‘That’s not true,’ Biden said, disputing financial records that show Hunter, Jim and Hallie Biden received lucrative payments from one of Hunter’s business associates, according to Republicans

And if Pres. Trump is arrested come next week, it is purely a political move with no legal merit to deflect from the Biden family investigation the GOP-led House committee is undertaking…

Chris Pandolfo: Trump says ‘illegal leaks’ indicate he’ll be arrested Tuesday: Donald Trump says on Truth Social that Manhattan DA investigating alleged hush money payments he made to Stormy Daniels is ‘CORRUPT’ and ‘HIGHLY POLITICAL’

Jon Levine: Donald Trump says he will be arrested Tuesday

Twitchy: Flashback time! Here are some of the Dems & media who will be triggered by Trump’s call for protest … Uh-huh, but…

Miranda Devine with the receipts: @GOPoversight has bank records of Hunter Biden’s business partner Rob Walker, a former Clinton official whose wife, Betsy Massey Walker, was Jill Biden’s assistant when Second Lady. He wired money from a Chinese company to Hunter Biden, James Biden, Hallie Biden & unnamed Biden

Gregg Jarrett explains this latest political folly by a George Soros heavily-backed dem operative posing as Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg who refuses to prosecute actual criminals plaguing NYC…

VIDEO: Gregg Jarrett on possible Trump indictment: This is the most cockamamie legal theory I’ve ever heard of

And as usual with these demcom third-world junta moves, the bullshit always blows-up in their smug faces…

Adam Shaw: ‘LAND SLIDE’ – Elon Musk predicts potential Trump arrest would seal 2024 presidential election: Twitter’s Elon Musk predicts Trump will win re-election in ‘landslide victory’ if Trump is arrested and put in handcuffs

VIDEO: Dan Bongino issues warning over possible Trump arrest, blames ‘Identity politics left’

Twitchy: Jonathan Turley analyzes case against Trump and concludes it’s ‘legally pathetic’

Jonathan Turley: Get ready for Manhattan DA’s made-for-TV Trump prosecution: high on ratings, but short on the law

Meanwhile, go back and re-listen to Gregg Jarrett’s evaluation of this case. House Speaker McCarthy is ‘following the money’ on this latest load of shit. Jarrett and Turley know what they’re talking about…

Adam Shaw: McCarthy directs committees to probe whether federal funds were used in potential Trump indictment


Our once world power military has been fundamentally transformed into limp dicks overseen by dick-less hacks, many hired to fulfill purely “affirmative action/#WOKE social justice” quotas agenda of the Biden puppet-masters and the left…

Peter Kasperowicz: Navy secretary cited climate change as top priority as Biden proposes shrinking the fleet: The Biden administration proposed cutting two ships from the Navy in its 2024 budget plan

And while our school children are not even being taught passing-grades academic subjects (as they are in communist China) but are being indoctrinated and brainwashed with ‘gender/queer/sexualization’ bullshit and deliberately dividing and pitting them racially this is what Russia (China’s growing Ally) is also training kids in schools under their supervision. Sadly, I doubt the majority of our now deliberately confused anti-American youth would give them much of a fight should they decide to invade us. And never doubt there are ‘those’ already inside our country ready to join their ranks when the time comes, adults as well as indoctrinated children…

Some are scoffing that any invasion would involve drones and missiles and fighter jets. Yeah. But once defeated, an invaded land will be detained and controlled under foot-soldiers. Lots and lots of foot-soldiers on a ground where a citizenry has been allowed to buy and own/possess firearms for well over two centuries.

Production of ‘white flags’ in this country should be booming soon. No doubt Brandon will be patting himself on the hunched-back for those ‘new jobs’…

Steve Janoski: Shocking video shows Russian kids going through military training in Crimea

Meanwhile, in three years the American people has not been fed even one damn milliliter of truth in the entirety of the COVID pandemic, from origins to transmission to therapeutics to vaccines to etc. and still to this day…

Matt Taibi: TWITTER FILES #19 – The Great Covid-19 Lie Machine: Stanford, the Virality Project, and the Censorship of “True Stories”

Why the left in MSM and DC hate FOX News and work so hard to get it “canceled”:

Mediaite: Cable News Ratings Tuesday March 7: Fox News Scores 6 Times More Viewers Than CNN in Prime Time

A very pathetic attempt by Mediaite to polish the turd that is MSNBC with this fantasy title…

No! No! NOOO! This classroom indoctrination bullshit has to stop. It used to be we viewed people having to eat worms and insects as a sign of severe and unjust poverty and malnutrition. Now it’s the “only right way”. And “cows are killing Earth” compared to the various dinosaur eras of much larger methane producing beasts? Earth will be just fine, teach.

Hannah Grossman: Utah school gives kids ‘disgusting’ insects to eat in class for climate assignment on cows killing the Earth: ‘There’s only one right answer to this essay. And it’s that Americans should be eating bugs,’ a teacher said … You know what’s next, right? “Reduce the surplus population” as Charles Dickens wrote. If these cults believe anything about “methane producing” animal its that Earth is “overpopulated”, with no ‘natural’ depopulation in-sight. Some even espouse reducing the current population. Could the initial COVID pandemic have been a not-so-dry-run?

Actually, in the so-called “socialist utopia” of places like Cuba this sort of “neighborly” “scaling up” isn’t ok with the government, let alone making dwelling repairs without government permission. Socialism always means far less for people than they had before its instalment and far-far more for government after its instalment.

“Hump Day” Reads: Happy “Death Day”, Karl…

The best thing Marx did for mankind was die…

I recently re-watched the movie “Nicholas and Alexandra”. I’d read the book (as well as Dostoyevsky’s “Crime and Punishment”) in high school (ugh!). Even though it’s fiction, “Doctor Zhivago” is still a more worthwhile loooong view/read. Anyhow, the depiction of the infighting between different commie/Bolshevik groups reminded me a lot of today’s dumb-ass neo-coms. Don’t get me wrong. The Czar was a total ass and not worthy of his people’s loyalty. He’d made his own bed in denying the people an active voice and position in the country. Much like today’s Czar Puddin’-head.

Wednesday Newsfeed: Another Day, Same Old Dullard…

Yeah! Yeah, just walk away, Puddin-head:

Emily Goodin: Joe Biden is confused AGAIN as he messes up story about what part of Oregon voted to secede in front of wealthy donors who just gave $1M: Biden made a verbal blunder at a fancy fundraiser> He mixed up a story about Oregon in front of 65 wealthy donors. They had just given $1 million to Democratic Party.

Hanna Panreck: Biden caught telling multiple versions of infamous gay marriage ‘epiphany’ story in fact-check: Biden recently told a version of the story during an interview with ‘The Daily Show’

God help us. As Brandon finances Ukraine, he impedes Americans and carves-away their freedoms and rights…

The current ‘energy efficient’ washer models are already insufficient in that they do not use enough water for the loads and wash/rinse times/water is not enough causing laundry to either manually be put through a second rinse cycle or end up being rewashed when you go to get something from the closet that eventually doesn’t smell clean, although it has been washed. And don’t get me started on the damned “HE” formulated laundry detergents…

Matteo Cina: Manufacturers say Biden washing machine rule would make Americans dirtier and stinkier — and raise prices: Industry manufacturers claim the change would make each cycle take longer, detergent cost more, and leave clothes dirtier and stinkier

Collin Anderson: How Biden’s New Washing Machine Regulations Could Ruin Laundry Day: Manufacturers say government climate change initiative would make your washing cycles longer, clothes dirtier

“When you’re squeezing all you can out of the efficiency in terms of electricity use and water … you by definition either make the appliance worse or slower,” said Fisher, who serves as a senior research fellow at the foundation’s Center for Energy, Climate, and Environment. “Why are we so focused on the energy output, as opposed to if it’s helping me wash my clothes? That standard has kind of gone off the rails.”…

“Not-a-joke-man”: Taking his schpiel to his low-info base…

Matt Margolis: Joe Biden Takes Things Seriously by… Going on Comedy Central?

Recent polls show the overwhelming majority of Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction. So naturally, Joe Biden found it appropriate to do a sit-down interview nowhere other than Comedy Central.

No, that’s not a typo. Joe Biden (or his handlers, anyway) thinks it’s an appropriate move at this time to grant an interview to the same network that airs South Park, Beavis and Butt-Head, and other high-level programming becoming of a sitting president.

It gets better…

That’s no basis for a bailout, so they pinned it to American workers instead…

It’s a bailout, pure and simple. For years, SVB and its cronies lobbied for looser risk limits by arguing its failure wouldn’t create “systemic risk” and wouldn’t need special intervention by the US government. Yet now the same cronies claim SVB was “systemically important.”

A friendly reminder that everyday customers will have to shoulder the burden of this bailout through higher charges as they top up FDIC…

The deeper problem is that the Federal Reserve has been trying to play God for too long. Except with a fat finger.

Colleges are fetid money pits and intellectual blackholes…

All you rabid leftist “feminists” have completely sold-out your sex/gender and can have nothing further to offer any ‘debate’ on anything. You are never again to be taken seriously…

CR: Colleges throw out Women’s History Month, celebrate ‘Womxn’ instead: Across the United States, colleges are replacing the ‘Women’s’ in ‘Women’s History Month’ with the woke-appropriate ‘Womxn’s.’ The change is a ploy to make Women’s History Month more gender-neutral and to distance women from men.

Like this bullshit…

Twitchy: Watch: Group of women refuse to define what a woman is because it might offend men

You can cut off parts and construct fake parts, wear opposite gender clothing and make-up and hair, but being a “woman”/female and a man/male is in your DNA and you cannot change that … atleast not yet.

NAOMI WOLF: Dear conservatives, I’m sorry I believed so many media lies: “There is no way to avoid this moment. The formal letter of apology. From me. To Conservatives and to those who “put America first” everywhere…”

A point I have made over and over since 9/11 is that many events in history are both real and hyped. Many actors in historic events have their agendas, but are also at times used by other people with their own agendas, in ways of which the former are unaware. Terrorists and terrorism in the Bush era are one example. This issue was both real and hyped.

“Patriots” or “insurgents” (depending on who you are) entering the Capitol can be part of a real event that is also exploited or manipulated by others. We don’t know yet if this is the case in relation to the events of Jan 6, or to what extent it may be the case. That is where a real investigation must come in.

But as someone who has studied history, and the theatrics of history, for decades, I was not at all surprised to see, on Mr Carlson’s security camera footage, the person who was to became the most memorable ‘face’ of the ‘insurrection’ (or the riot, or the Capitol breach) — escorted to the beating heart of the action, where his image could be memorialized by a battery of cameras forever.

There are other aspects of the Jan 6 breach that seemed anomalous to me from the start. I study the relationship in history of buildings such as The White House and the Capitol, to the US public; I follow the way in which the public is either welcomed into or barred from these structures.

The White House itself and the Capitol steps have often been open to US citizens. They are public buildings…

The Capitol is not a sealed space exclusively for legislators, but it is one that is supposed to welcome the public in an orderly way. We should not be encouraged to forget this.

The violence of Jan 6 and its subsequent service as a talking point by the Democrats’ leadership, risks its use also to justify the closing off of our public buildings from US citizens altogether.

This would be convenient for tyrants of any party.

Leaving aside the release of the additional Jan 6 footage and how it may or may not change our view of US history —- I must say that I am sorry for believing the dominant legacy-media “narrative” pretty completely from the time it was rolled out, without asking questions…

Read the whole thing.

I’ve yet to view “Everything Everywhere All at Once” but see it is streaming, so, it’s on this week’s ‘wish list’ for me. The trailer looks entertaining … something Hollywood just can’t get a grip on in recent decades. Ticket prices are outrageous. People want entertainment, not #WOKE political scolding lectures. I’ll also be re-watching “Top Gun: Maverick” for the umpteenth time.

If you care, which I really don’t but found these wins interesting…

SPACE: The Twinkles in Our Eyes When We Look Up at Night

The Daily Digest: The world’s newest space telescope just found something that shouldn’t exist: Hidden within images taken by the James Woods Space Telescope were subtle traces of six massive galaxies that astrophysicists argue must have come into existence shortly after the Big Bang, galaxies so old and so large that they couldn’t possibly be real.

Anthony Cuthbertson: ‘It won’t be boring’: SpaceX Starship launch may end in explosion, Elon Musk hints:

Starship is being developed to fulfil a $1.15 billion contract with Nasa to deliver astronauts to the Moon as part of the Artemis program.

Beyond that, Mr Musk sees the rocket as integral to his ambitions to send the first people to Mars, with the ultimate goal of setting up a permanent human colony on the Red Planet.

“This is a very difficult programme,” Mr Musk said at the conference. “The rocket is roughly two-and-a-half times the thrust of the Saturn V, so if or when it reaches orbit it’ll be by far the largest rocket to reach orbit. But more importantly, it is designed to be the first fully-reusable rocket ever.

“The key to expanding life beyond Earth is a fully and rapidly reusable orbital rocket. This is a very hard problem given the constraints… Earth has a thick atmosphere and strong gravity, it is only barely possible to do this, that is why it has not been done before.”…
