Here´s the magnificent last view NASA´s
Kepler Space Telescope ever saw

CNET, by Eric Mack

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 2/10/2019 4:59:38 AM

The final thing NASA´s Kepler Space Telescope captured was everything, or at least it looks that way. NASA ran out of fuel last year and was put into a permanent sleep mode on Oct. 30. The final full-field image it took can be seen in the above mosaic captured Sept. 25. You can see the telescope´s full view of the sky and an abundance of stars within. Some blocks of the composite image are blacked out due to failures by parts of the camera. Fortunately, the device had a modular design

Comments:
It was only supposed to last for 3.5 years, but made it almost three times that long.

And one day, if we live long enough, they´ll finally launch the James Webb Space Telescope to take Kepler´s place. Current launch date is March 30, 2021 unless there are more delays.

Certainly something to look forward to.

There are missing picture tiles because thats where the secret satellites and alien space ships are.
They´ve let a few images get by in the past and wont let that happen again.

Kepler was budgeted at 600 million, but the actual launch costs were 692 million. NASA then budgeted 20 million a year to maintain ground communication and operation of the telescope. With spacecraft failures and extensions of the original mission time, the cost of operations ballooned. So far, estimates for the total mission duration costs are more than 180 million.

I did a little research- you won´t find these figures easy to locate. NASA no longer likes to publish mission expenses. And NASA´s "Muslim Outreach" program and their "Global Warming" support programs are still fully operational.

Last week, there was the pitiful scene of Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York begging President Trump to restore a tax provision which unfairly benefitted New Yorkers. It seems that many high-income New Yorkers have been moving their tax homes to Florida, undermining the New York tax base. Those who live in New York City may be paying state and local income tax rates, in addition to the federal tax, of over 12 percent, giving some an overall tax burden of approximately 50 percent. Florida imposes no state and local income taxes in addition to the federal income tax —

Questions for Those Who

The “we reported the Jussie Smollett case responsibly” contention has been blasted to smithereens. Twitter accounts and headlines in the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the Los Angeles Times reported as fact Jussie Smollett’s wildly implausible allegations, and many other journalists did so as well, not to mention the innumerable activists and celebrities who piled on. So, a question for all of the above. Why did you believe Jussie Smollett? Let’s try to catalogue the red flags. Had you ever heard of Jussie Smollett before the alleged January 29 attack? Do you think it likely

FBI’s Weaselgate
American Spectator, by George Neumayr    Original Article

Andrew McCabe’s book is titled The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump, as if to say Trump is part of the terror. The real upshot of the book is that the politicized ranks of the FBI under James Comey and McCabe were too afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome to protect America from real threats. Those ranks took their eyes off real threats and concocted a phony one about Trump and Russia, behaving like members of a cult who turned to retaliation after their dear leader fell in a wholly justified firing.

We shouldn’t let the ISIS

Hoda Muthana, a 24-year old American woman who left the US to join ISIS 5 years ago, is really sorry and wants to come home. We shouldn’t let her. It should be obvious that when someone takes up arms against their country that they have committed treason and should never be allowed to return. Yet our friends across the pond are proving obvious it isn’t. Britain is having a raging debate about whether they should allow back their own homegrown terrorist, Shamima Begum, who ran away to join ISIS four years ago.

The Jussie Smollett Incident
Was Never Very Important

Had the alleged attack on Jussie Smollett actually taken place, it would not have told us much about the racial situation in America. That it apparently was a hoax also doesn’t tell us very much about the racial situation in America. This is a point that is being missed, but that lies at the center of how the news media managed to bungle this story so embarrassingly. Before exploring why the incident was not a very important story, regardless of its veracity, it must be made clear that the news media did in fact botch this badly.

Just as I happened to miss the entire NFL season again this year, I recently missed the Stacey Abrams Show that followed President Trump’s marvelous State of the Union (SOTU) speech two weeks ago. I was going to watch her cry about how she really had won the Georgia gubernatorial election in November because, after all, she had Obama and Oprah campaigning for her, so she could not possibly have lost. (Snip)So many wonderful choices — and they chose The Unguv. (For the record, Stacey Abrams also is co-founder of Nourish, Inc.) Unguv Stace was chosen

Four below zero — that’s how cold it was at 2 a.m. in Chicago on Jan. 29, when actor Jussie Smollett claims he was the victim of a racist, homophobic hate crime perpetrated by two white Trump supporters. There were many reasons to be skeptical of Smollett’s story, but the fact that Chicago was experiencing a “polar vortex” of arctic cold was high on the list of doubts. Even if you could believe that two right-wingers would be stalking a not-very-famous actor in downtown Chicago, waiting for a chance to attack him

Democrats are fighting mad — at each other. For once, President Trump is not the prime target of their rage. Amazon’s decision to scrap plans for an HQ2 campus in New York sent the circular firing squad into action. The blue-on-blue attacks pit the far left against the far, far left in yet another front of the party’s civil war. In addition to sharp differences about a Green New Deal, taxes, socialism, Medicare-for-all and open borders, Dems are now split over how and whether government should work with the private sector to create jobs and boost the tax base.

6 illegal immigrants linked to Mexican

Six illegal immigrants with ties to a Mexican drug cartel — a rival of the powerful Sinaloa cartel, whose notorious leader Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was convicted last week — were arrested in an elaborate drug trafficking operation in North Carolina, according to reports. The massive drug operation included transporting large amounts of cocaine and methamphetamine across state lines — for instance, from Texas to Georgia and North Carolina, WSOC reported. The feds identified the suspects as Oscar Rangel-Gutierrez, Regulo Rangel-Gutierrez, Francisco Garcia-Martinez, Rodolfo Martinez, Raul Rangel-Gutierrez and Rigoberto Rangel-Gutierrez.

A Real Emergency
Townhall, by Derek Hunter    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 2/17/2019 5:34:58     Post Reply
On Friday, President Donald Trump announced he would declare the situation at the border to be a national emergency to enable him to move previously allocated money to fund a border wall. This was a long-telegraphed punch that had already sent leftists and some Republicans clutching their pearls since the idea was first floated weeks ago. Lost in all of this is the fact that this action, while taken by the president, is 100 percent the fault of Congress. I have to say at the outset, I want a wall built where a wall is needed.

That Justice Department officials were having discussions about ousting a sitting president should concern every American. It is simply astonishing that these actors allegedly held conversations around the notion of seizing power from the elected head of the executive branch. Obviously, heads should roll, but really such a plot should result in criminal prosecutions with all the high-profile force that was used to arrest Roger Stone. The new revelations come to us care of former FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe, who has written a book and is shilling it on “60 Minutes.” The interview will air in full on Sunday,

President Donald Trump said yes to the budget bill to keep open government, but then bypassed Congress and declared a national emergency to free up funding to build his long-promised border wall. And on the other side of town, Beto O’Rourke — Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke — says let’s go ahead and rip ‘em all down. The campaign lines for 2020 and beyond couldn’t be any clearer. “Would you, if you could, would you take the wall down here — knock it down?” asked MSNBC’s Chris Hayes to O’Rourke, in reference to existing border fencing. “Yes, absolutely,” O’Rourke said. “I’d take the wall down.”

An American jihadi bride living in a refugee camp after fleeing ISIS´s last stand in Syria is begging the US to allow her to return home. Hoda Muthana, 24, left Hoover, Alabama in 2014, in order to join ISIS in Syria, where she would later call for US Muslims to ´spill all of the blood´ by launching terror attacks during Memorial Day events. Now, having lost two of her three jihadi fighter husbands and living in a squalid refugee camp, she claims to have been brainwashed and made a ´big mistake´ when she travelled to Syria.

To prove that there´s a border emergency, President Trump must stop eating omelets! Ridiculous, you might say. And yet, on this morning´s New Day, CNN´s John Avlon, Alisyn Camerota and Jeff Toobin mocked President Trump for eating an omelet, somehow suggesting it debunks the existence of an emergency. After displaying a photo of Trump at a Mar-a-Lago omelet bar, the trio engaged in this banter:JOHN AVLON: While ´emergency´ is not defined in this statute, the dictionary definition of emergency certainly doesn´t fit this. And this weekend, he´s at Mar-a-Lago at the omelet bar, also not exactly communicating urgency. CAMEROTA: Nothing

At a news conference after a rally in Las Vegas, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) told KLAS’s 8 News NOW that Trump administration officials “have a constitutional responsibility to invoke the 25th Amendment,” if they think it is needed. Warren was asked about the CBS’s “60 Minutes” interview with former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who claimed Justice Department officials discussed invoking the 25th Amendment. Warren said, “I’m not the one who hangs out in his office and who sees him everyday and sees how well or how poorly he able to manage from day to day with the decisions he

Watching Fox News host Chris Wallace plying his trade lately on “Fox News Sunday” may leave viewers with the notion he’s working hard to impress liberal colleagues in the media. And when those liberals start praising Wallace, well, not only is it a good sign that he’s succeeding in his quest, it should also serve as notice to the Fox News host that he may want to reassess his approach. Case in point, MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart praised Wallace after Sunday’s interview of White House senior adviser Stephen Miller on President Trump‘s declaration of a national emergency on the southern border.

The Facebook page operates under a pseudonym and does not appear to have been publicly updated since 2017.

Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested late last week that she does not understand the difference between the Berlin Wall and President Donald Trump´s proposed border wall. (Video) During an Instagram live video on Friday, the freshman congresswoman said that she thought the wall was a "moral abomination. I think it´s like the Berlin Wall." That Ocasio-Cortez thinks the border wall is "like the Berlin Wall" suggests she knows very little about history and concepts of border security. Former senior official at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Matt Mayer explains why comparisons between Trump´s wall and the Berlin Wall

Conservative CNN host S.E.

Remember conservatism? Limited government? You know, your principles?” she asked in frustration.

Failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton warned of “real national emergencies” that included “Americans dying for lack of health care,” despite Obamacare remaining in place. Clinton posted a message Monday appearing to take aim at President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the U.S. southern border. She offered four alternative “real national emergencies.” The real national emergencies: – Relentless gun violence. – Children separated from their families at the border. – Climate change. – Americans dying for lack of health care. Clinton identified “real national emergencies” as: – Relentless gun violence

AL-OMAR OIL FIELD BASE, Syria — More than 300 Islamic State militants surrounded in a tiny area in eastern Syria are refusing to surrender to U.S.-backed Syrian forces and are trying to negotiate an exit, Syrian activists and a person close to the negotiations said Monday. The development comes amid the Islamic State group´s last stand in the village of Baghouz, where militants are hiding among hundreds of civilians and preventing them from leaving. It also will likely further delay a declaration on IS´ territorial defeat that U.S.-backed Syrian forces

CBS journalist Lara Logan on Friday unleashed a blistering, uncensored attack on the extreme liberal bias polluting America´s news outlets. Logan derided the “horses**t” “propagandist” press that had no interest in fairness. Appearing on Mike Drop, the podcast of former Navy SEAL Mike Ritland, the foreign affairs correspondent and occasional 60 Minutes reporter berated slanted coverage in a way rarely seen by those in the mainstream press: “We’ve become political activists in a sense. And some could argue, propagandists, right?”

A lot of Americans are justifiably angry that disgraced FBI official Andrew McCabe is doing a book tour rather than a stretch in some federal penitentiary. He has committed perjury on multiple occasions, participated in an attempt to alter the outcome of a national election, and colluded with other rogue bureaucrats to remove a duly elected president from power. But there is a bright and shiny silver lining to this dingy cloud of deep state skullduggery: Donald Trump still resides in the White House while Hillary Clinton stumbles around her Chappaqua mansion in a muumuu hugging a fifth of Glenfiddich.
