A blogger with brains and a passion for free speech explains to the brainless and partisan mainstream press why the Obama administration thinks it can get away with monitoring the news gathering operations of the press and not face outraged criticism.

Read it all. If you happen to be a journalist with any ethics, it will make you sick.

Pioneer cover

From the press release: From the moment he is handed a possibility of making the first alien contact, Saunders Maxwell decides he will do it, even if doing so takes him through hell and back.

 
Unfortunately, that is exactly where that journey takes him.

The vision that Zimmerman paints of vibrant human colonies on the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, and beyond, indomitably fighting the harsh lifeless environment of space to build new societies, captures perfectly the emerging space race we see today.

He also captures in Pioneer the heart of the human spirit, willing to push forward no matter the odds, no matter the cost. It is that spirit that will make the exploration of the heavens possible, forever, into the never-ending future.

    Still can’t believe this is happening. It isn’t an impartial report when the person heading it is purely political. What happened to the Democrat party over the last 5 years? It is a minority of the Democrat party pushing these totalitarian strategies but Republicans can’t do anything about it, only Democrats can change their own party.

    Also, government reports are always followed with recommendations for regulation. That should be scary even to our friends on the left.

    The day before this story broke, I told some friends that it seems that every day we’re bombarded with yet another heinous infringement of our Constitutional rights. And this is one of the worst yet – my comment was, we’ve basically become a Banana Republic. What’s next – mass executions ?? Don’t laugh…

    There is power in keeping your opponents confused and over loaded. This is one of the rules of Saul Alinshy, don’t let a good crisis go to waste.

    We are all being techniqued, this is no coincidence.

    “What happened to the Democrat party over the last 5 years?”

    You almost answered it yourself. The Democrat party got hijacked. So did the Republican party.

    Now, We the People are left on our own, with no representation, in a struggle against our own government. It is looking more and more like the 1770s every week. Or, as Chris suggests below, is it happening every day, now?

    No one who has read about pre ww2 Germany is laughing, Germany at this point was very advanced society and not a dictatorship, this can happen again!
