    There’s no place like home—unless you’re Elon Musk. A prototype of SpaceX’s Starship, which may someday send humans to Mars, is, according to Musk, likely to launch soon, possibly within the coming days. But what motivates Musk? Why bother with Mars? A video clip from an interview Musk gave in 2019 seems to sum up Musk’s vision—and everything that’s wrong with it. ....Sagan believed that if we had a photo of ourselves from this distance, it would forever alter our perspective of our place in the cosmos. But there Musk cuts himself off and begins to laugh. He says with...
  • David Hogg: ‘Ridiculous’ That ‘It’s on the Survivors of Gun Violence to Stand Up to Gun Violence’

    Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor David Hogg on Thursday spoke with CNN’s “New Day” after video surfaced of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), before being in office, grilling Hogg over his gun control activism. Hogg questioned why “corrupted” elected officials would rather protect guns than children. He then said it is “ridiculous” that “it’s on the survivors of gun violence to stand up to gun violence.”
  • D.C. Mayor Bowser: Dem-Led House, Senate Will Pass D.C. Statehood, Bring It to Biden’s Desk

    Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser told “Just the News” on Friday that the Democratic-led Senate and House will vote in favor of statehood for the District of Columbia and send the bill to President Joe Biden’s desk, who has expressed support for D.C. statehood in the past. Bowser said, “The nation’s capital, the federal enclave, continues to exist as the nation’s capital and everything outside of those new boundaries becomes the 51st state. Our congresswoman – we had our first successful vote on statehood in the House of Representatives last year. She reintroduced the bill. She has a record number...
  • Bill Gates Becomes America’s Largest Farmland Owner With Shock Purchase Of 242,000 Acres, Will It Be For Food Production Or FEMA Camps For Anti-Vaxxers?

    Microsoft founder Bill Gates is now the owner of the most farmland in the United States, according to Land Report. The Land Report researchers concluded that Gates, now the fourth richest man in the world, and his wife, Melinda, own 242,000 acres of farmland. Everything Bill Gates does comes with an ulterior motive attached to it, he is not the type of person given to spontaneous acts of anything. Gates is the world’s largest private donor to the WHO, but that $4 billion bought him the street cred he needed to pretend he’s an epidemiologist. It allowed him to become...

    As many as 25,000 National Guard troops will be in Washington, D.C., for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next week, the Army confirmed on Friday. The Defense Department authorized up to 25,000 service members — an increase of 5,000 from numbers confirmed earlier this week — to support the “federal law enforcement mission and security preparations” in the inauguration, as led by the Secret Service, according to an Army statement. “Our National Guard soldiers and airmen are set around the city to protect our nation's Capital,” National Guard Bureau Chief Army Gen. Daniel Hokanson said in the statement. Every state and...

    Washington Post ^ | December 27, 2020 | DeNeen L. Brown
    In “Bridgerton,” the new Shonda Rhimes period drama on Netflix, the lords and ladies of early 19th century Britain are depicted as Black as well as White. Why? Washington Post television critic Hank Stuever explains it this way: “A Black character stops to explain, grandly, how and why this society came to be integrated. (Answer: because the queen is a person of color.) Not only does it not make much sense, but it seems like an unnecessary wrench thrown into a completely sensible and revisionary romp: People of color are here because they should have been here all along. Isn’t...

    The Centre of Fine Arts in Brussels announced the celebration of the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven by posting a portrait of the composer as a black African man.

The American Foreign Service Association (AFSA) also issued a statement defending U.S. diplomats after Trump criticized several of those who have appeared before Congress and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said nothing specific in their support.

    Friends email | 14 november 2019 | me
    My takeaway from yesterday's impeachment hearings was simply; Are you kidding me? Both witnesses, career diplomats William Taylor and George Kent assigned to the Ukraine offered little more than hearsay. Both men, knowledgeable about the Ukraine, including the high level of corruption in government offered nothing more that “I heard this or that, or “he said, or “she said”, or “I think possibly…”, “I believe this or that,” and it appears maybe.. and so on. To me it was laughable. Frantically stirring this empty pot of hearsay was Democrat Adam Schiff, the hearing chairman. Sort of funny watching Schiff getting...

    EXTREME ADULT CONTENT ALERT. ADULT EYES ONLY. This piece has been a long time coming. I was alerted to this a few years ago, researched it, saw it was true, and then heard enough other anecdotes from across North America to become convinced (with encouragement) that a warning needs to go out, especially to those in Trad Catholic parishes. The best way to protect oneself from sex predators is INFORMATION. We’ve probably all been to a Renaissance Fair or at least heard of people who go off on weekends and do Medieval/Renaissance role playing/reenactment stuff. People make their own costumes,...

    As special counsel Robert Mueller prepares his final report and Congress ramps up its own investigations, we soon will have answers to questions over collusion, obstruction, and Russian influence. Yet, President Trump may answer one of the most intriguing questions of all: Is it better to fight one horse-sized duck or a hundred duck-sized horses? New developments make it likely that Trump will fight a hundred duck-sized horses, in the form of alleged collateral crimes rather than collusion. None appears life threatening in their own right, so the real question here is what they will represent collectively during the next...

    More than 44,000 people have signed an open letter from progressive Jewish leaders saying President Trump is not welcome in Pittsburgh until he denounces white nationalism. Eleven members of the Pittsburgh affiliate of Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice penned a letter to Trump following Saturday's shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue that left 11 congregants dead. "President Trump, you are not welcome in Pittsburgh until you stop targeting and endangering all minorities," the letter reads. "President Trump, you are not welcome in Pittsburgh until you cease your assault on immigrants and refugees."

If he breaks the law during that time, Sumpter could be made to serve all or part of a 42-month prison sentence. Sumpter was working at a Dunkin’ Donuts in Norwalk...

But with Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announcing his retirement on Wednesday, and Willett’s name appearing on a list...
