Where no man has gone before

James Van Allen, after whom the radiation belt is named, asked in 2004 whether human spaceflight is a legacy dream, a survival of some outdated science-fiction notion, now overtaken by harsh reality. (Snip) Would it be the Moon, would it be Mars, would it be the Space Station? They could hardly anticipate that Obama would actually shoot for “none of the above”; that in 2014 a resurgent Russia would actually threaten to deny the United States access to the space station and even the use of Russian rocket boosters. A “fundamentally transformed America” had gone from being able to put a

Comments:
In this essay Wretchard ponders the demise of NASA, our dependency on Russia to return to outer space, the significance of human activity outside the earth´s realm, and the possibility of people colonizing Mars as soon as a dozen years from now. But before we can look outward to tomorrow´s frontiers, we must learn to deal with the consequences of having elected characters who´d transform NASA into a Moslem feel-good agency that no longer functions as it was intended.

Haven´t read the story - - just read the headline.

Does this have something to do with Mrs. Clinton?

It is difficult to be optimistic when one considers the huge ideological (not pro-American) transformation that this administration has wrought on all alphabet agencies, including NASA (muslim outreach and global warming, indeed!).

A pro-American administration may try to reverse things but don´t forget they will be fighting against a determined progressive core, the courts, and the consistently leftist media.

A major disruption in "Business-as-Usual" may be the only way to turn things around in time.

I actually think Obie, having not thought it out well as other things, wants Muslims to be a part of the Space Program. Great, build a huge rocket, load it up with Terrorist Mooslimes and send it to the SUN! Research don´t you know.

In his famous short story The Sound of Thunder, Bradbury argued the present stood perched on the past. (Snip) Even if it were possible to change the past, Bradbury argues there is no guarantee that the resulting alternative future would be any better. Our task must to leave the world better than we found it, not to remake it from the foundations. That doesn’t mean the past is gone, but it lacks the special quality of activity. The dead are already costed into the present. They’ve set out the crib, screwed in the lightbulb, defeated Hitler; they were present at

Joyous return as crew
back from Honduras jail
St. Petersburg Times [FL], by Josh Boatwright    Original Article

TARPON SPRINGS — It took more than 50 days and intervention by U.S. officials for the six-man of crew of Aqua Quest to finally be freed from a jail in a remote port in Honduras. The captain of the Tarpon Springs salvage ship, Robert Mayne, says he feels lucky. “For us, it was a brutal, difficult, long, slow procedure. Our friends in Honduras told us it was lighting quick. They generally never move that quick,” said Mayne, who was jailed on May 5 along with his crew on charges of smuggling weapons in the port town of Puerto Lempira. Others

News that Quinnipiac poll finds president Obama is the “worst president since World War II” was greeted with amusement. (Snip) . But the real news is this: it’s not working any more. Even Obamacare might actually be repealed. Liberal foreign policy might really go down in flames. Already the authorities are warning of bombs on inbound airline flights. And Obama might actually be the worst president since World War 2. Things used to be under control; what happened? What happened wasn’t the Republican Party.

Hugh Hewitt — with an assist from history and the Socratic method — demolished the Huffington Post’s “Senior Political Economy Reporter” Zach Carter yesterday on his show. (Snip) "Most journalists go into the business because they are idealists of one sort or another and they love the whole “first draft of history” stuff. What journalists collectively do is crucial, because lousy reporting leads to lousy voting, the consequences we see now on full display across the globe. Perhaps Mr. Carter and his friends think the world around them is all George W. Bush’s fault. After all, they were in high

I have been staying with my parents recently, while my house is being renovated. I have also been breaking out in hives. (Snip) Experts use the term "social allergens" to describe behaviors or habits that drive others nuts. Some of these actions begin to annoy us soon after we meet someone. Others get to us slowly and surely over time. Imagine a heehaw laugher. A knuckle cracker. A braggart who always tries to one-up you. A person who thinks loud belching is a compliment to the chef. As with a lot of allergies, it´s the repetition that gets to us.

The most interesting overnight news is that former French president Nicolas Sarkozy has been “held for questioning” by police investigating allegations that he tried to influence a judge investigating a illegal contributions to his campaign. Under French law a person can be “held” for up to 48 hours without being charged. “This is thought to be the first time a French former head of state has been held in police custody.” (Snip) In today’s Vox, Ezra Klein writes of unease about the provenance of the Clinton stash. ”The problem isn’t that the Clintons are rich, it’s where the money came

Hobby Lobby

When Gerald Ford remarked that “a government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have” he might have been commenting on the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby decision which ruled 5-4 as the Washington Post reports: “that the arts-and-crafts chain does not have to offer insurance for four types of birth control that conflict with company owners’ religious beliefs.” Walter Russell Mead gets what is at issue. Beyond the narrow facts of the decision, the case itself underlines the unpleasantly large scope that government regulation now covers. Government, to

Robert Zubrin writes, in a National Review article, about a secret meeting between Western national socialist parties and the agent of Vladimir Putin. The venue is what you would expect: a James Bond like setting with mysterious billionaires in attendance. (Snip) From Obama’s point of view his main frustration must be his inability to match the expansionary efforts of his rivals. No wonder he hates the Republican Congress so; without their narrow minded obstruction he might already be a Herman von Rompuy. And who’s resisting the trend towards gigantism? Nobody but a ragtag UKIP here and tattered Tea Party there.

Perhaps the single most comprehensive summary of developments — or lack thereof — in the MH370 mystery is by Bruce Drum of World Airline News. It lays out the state of knowledge about what happen to missing Malaysian Airlines jet and where the search may go from here. (Snip) That’s like saying that if Inspector Clay was murdered then somebody’s responsible. How much meaning there is in the Malaysian police report is questionable. Something happened on MH370 but we don’t know what it was. Nor perhaps can we ever know. Given the size of the search area, probabilities and assumptions

CARACAS, VENEZUELA – Already grappling with street protests led by the right, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is facing a new threat from an unlikely place: old-school leftists who accuse him of betraying the socialist legacy that carried him to power. Maduro was tapped by Hugo Chavez as his preferred successor to the presidency, and is quick to invoke the late leader´s name, but orthodox socialists are grumbling over liberalized currency reforms they say are counter to the revolution. The tensions came to a head last week when Maduro fired Planning Minister Jorge Giordani, a Marxist economist whose Spartan lifestyle and

It’s a scene straight out of fiction. Refugees from North Africa, packed like sardines in small boats are streaming in droves across the Med to Italy. (Snip) Once inside Europe, these migrants replicate their homelands, sometimes right down to the quarrels that split their countries in the first place. The New York Times recently covered a case which has riveted France, the beating of a gypsy boy by “migrants” who wanted to teach him a lesson for stealing. The Roma boy was beaten to a literal pulp, dumped in a supermarket trolley and left as trash to be collected.

Woman, bitten by 2-foot

The McCarthy Wildlife Sanctuary boasts the “coolest collection of snakes around,” but Thursday morning one of those snakes, a 2-foot-long spectacled cobra, bit a sanctuary employee as she cleaned cages. The woman, who’s permitted to handle snakes, was bitten shortly after 5:30 a.m., reported Katie Johnson, spokeswoman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. By 5:45 a.m., Palm Beach County Fire Rescue crews were taking her to Palms West Hospital and by 8 a.m. an antivenin team from Miami had arrived to help treat her. By lunch time, the woman was in critical condition, Johnson said.

This past week, Fox News, Megyn Kelly, and Dinesh D’Souza gave a platform to an entity that hates America and our way of life. Seems the prospect of smokin’ out a snake like Bill Ayers was too good to pass up. Getting an exclusive one-on-one with a crazy, violent communist with a small c was quite a coup for Kelly and D’Souza...or was it? Since lying and deceit generally benefit the liar, we have to ask, ”What was in it for Bill Ayers?” A mea culpa for past crimes? Hardly. After listening to Ayers, we must conclude: once a psychopath, always a psychopath.

Maybe we’ve been conned. There’s a growing recognition that Barack Obama is an incompetent poser, working out of his depth, and his administration is the gang that can’t shoot straight. There’s a lot of evidence to support that belief. Everything he touches becomes a bloody mess, like crushed bones and bits of flesh caught in the tracks of a tank slicing through a rank of soldiers (or civilians). Iraq, Syria, Egypt — all gone, as prospects for countries with a prosperous and democratic future. The “reset” with Russia, meant to ensure that America and the replacement republic of the old

President Obama’s displeasure with gridlock in Washington — and with the Republicans he blames for it — has been rising for months. This week it has boiled over. From the Rose Garden to the Cabinet Room to near the Key Bridge in Georgetown, the president has signaled more than mere annoyance at the state of affairs at the halfway point of this year. His disdain for congressional Republicans has steadily increased; his disrespect for their tactics has hardened into contempt. With immigration reform dead for this year, if not for the remainder of Obama’s presidency; with House Speaker John A.

The White House is not planning to reassess its strategy for handling thousands of unaccompanied minors streaming across the border amid mass protests. White House press secretary Josh Earnest said he had not spoken to President Obama about protests in California that blocked buses full of immigrant detainees from reaching a processing station. But Earnest said there was no expectation of changing strategies to deal with the flood of minors "at this point.” "At this point, what we´re focused on is making sure that we can ramp up the resources that are necessary to meet this growing need," Earnest said.

Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) balked at the suggestion of Homeland Security Chairman Rep. Mike McCaul (R-TX) that the children filling the border facilities need to be detained and deported by holding up a bag of lollipops to demonstrate her view that compassion not deportation is in order.

The Vancouver (British Columbia) Board of Education has approved a sweeping new policy for accommodating lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit, queer, questioning and “all sexual and gender identities,” including the creation of three pronouns, replacing masculine and feminine with xe, xem and xyr (pronounced ze, zem and zur). Two spirit is an Aboriginal term which means having both feminine and masculine spirits. It´s not limited to gender expression or sexuality, but encompasses them both while incorporating a spiritual element. It´s a standalone identity, not an Aboriginal term for gay lesbian.

Recent events have not been kind to Hillary Clinton, but she is far from an innocent victim in what surely is one of the worst revival tours in memory. Hillary Clinton, still unwilling to acknowledge her and her boss’s failure to accurately assess the threats from al-Qaeda and the spread of jihaists into Libya, stubbornly insists we really don’t know why the jihadists attacked and killed our people. Oh, puhleez. While not a supporter of civilian trials for enemy combatants, I must admit there is something satisfying about the prosecution’s version of events laid out for all to see. The New

Sources inside MSNBC say former White House Spokesman Jay Carney, who recently resigned from his post at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, will likely be headed to MSNBC. Carney is in talks for a contributor position. If it happens, Carney would follow in the natural footsteps of a few other aides to President Obama who were welcomed into the MSNBC family upon leaving their jobs. The last White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, became an MSNBC contributor in May, 2013, while David Axelrod, a top aide to Obama, became one in February 2013.

Higher education is no longer just for kids in the top quarter or the top half of the class. College is for everyone," First lady Michelle Obama told a gathering of school counselors in Florida on Tuesday. "Every student in this country needs some higher education, whether that´s two-year degree, a four-year degree, or professional training of some sort." Mrs. Obama went to the annual meeting of the American School Counselor Association in Florida to thank counselors for taking on a demanding job without the resources necessary to meet the challenges. They, in turn, made her an honorary school counselor.

The United States added a stunning 288,000 jobs last month, sending the unemployment rate down to 6.1 percent and the Dow Jones Industrial Average shooting over 17,000 for the first time. June’s job numbers marked the fifth straight month of job gains over 200,000, the best stretch since the 1990s tech boom. A Bloomberg survey of economists expected an increase of 215,000 jobs in June. The unemployment rate dropped .2 percent to 6.1, the lowest since September 2008. May’s job report was also revised upward, showing 224,000 jobs added. The numbers follow strong reports for the Bay State last month, with

President Obama has, except on fleeting occasions, routinely disdained the customary Oval Office language of compromise and coalition-building for the low arts of sophistry and belittlement. That was to be expected, given his background as a Chicago community organizer and product of that city´s corrupt Democrat political machine. But Obama has far exceeded dismal expectations. No previous American president employed the systematic distortion of fact and mendacious characterization of opponents that have typified Obama´s presidency. His "so sue me" speech last week is a classic illustration of the community organizer practicing Saul Alinsky´s 13th rule: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize
