Genesis cover

On Christmas Eve 1968 three Americans became the first humans to visit another world. What they did to celebrate was unexpected and profound, and will be remembered throughout all human history. Genesis: the Story of Apollo 8, Robert Zimmerman's classic history of humanity's first journey to another world, tells that story, and it is now available as both an ebook and an audiobook, both with a foreword by Valerie Anders and a new introduction by Robert Zimmerman.

The ebook is available everywhere for $5.99 (before discount) at amazon, or direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit.

The audiobook is also available at all these vendors, and is also free with a 30-day trial membership to Audible.

"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs." --San Antonio Express-News

Another two hard radical Sanders campaign field workers

Project Veritas has released its fourth expose on the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, once again showing us two more radical hard left campaign workers, both field organizers, who seem willing to accept the idea of “destroying property” and using force to obtain power, regardless of whether Sanders is elected.

I’ve embedded the video below the fold. Unlike the radicals exposed in the earlier videos, I find these guys more absurd and intellectually empty than frightening. I do not see how they will be able to achieve a violent overthrow of the American people, especially since their opposition of Trump supporters are also avid and trained gun users who will not take kindly to any attempts to directly oppress them with force.

Regardless, these two Sanders workers do illustrate well the empty-headed policy ideas of Sanders and his campaign. If you jump to 12:00 minutes into the video, watch how Mason Baird struggles when asked how Bernie Sanders is going to carry out his policy. As he admits,

Like, we we get really nuts and bolts stuff, that’s what I really struggle with thinking about is — My answer is kind of like vague. It’s just like the, you know, having the movement and having, and snowballing that movement, and, and thinking more explicit, maybe thinking less about mobilize, or thinking about persuading people and more about mobilizing the people we already have.

He goes on to imply that the use of force against any one who opposes them would likely be the best approach, but he certainly seems very unclear how he and his ilk could do that.

I repeat and beg my Democratic readers, watch and learn. The Democratic Party is not the party you think it is. It is instead becoming a carbon copy of the Communist Party of the early Soviet Union, designed with only one purpose in mind, obtaining power. And we know this by the reaction of the Sanders campaign to these videos, which is to do nothing, to poo-poo what they reveal, and to fire no one.

    If Bernie pulls it off we might be looking at some future ambassadors for posting in South America.

    Jerry I know your saying that in jest, but “if Bernie pulls it off” that would be the last of the American peoples problems to worry about.

  • Phil Berardelli

    I’ve been saying and writing this for several years now, and I will continue to do so until it gets beaten like a drum into the heads of these fools. It is reckless in the extreme to threaten violence against a population within which are more than 100 million armed individuals — by far the largest in the world — many of whom have been superbly trained in the arts of covert warfare. If they continue along this path, they will invite their own destruction.

    General Mattis writes after the Obama administration did not follow through on the red line in Syria “And America today lives with the consequences of embolden adversaries and shaken allies.”

    He also writes about taking out Osama bin Laden without telling the Pakistani government, that any chance at using the Pakistanis as an ally was eliminated.

    The Bernie people are a direct fallout of the Weather Underground with Bill Ayers, of which Obama was the next generation!

    I have no hope for the free world if this is allowed to continue!

    I want to share a segment of a now week plus long conversation I am having with a committed Soros “Open Society” Liberal lawyer. It is very instructive. Two different realities? Or just two different strategic (S.O.M.) interpretations? The subjects run from Globalism to “Progressive”. Choose your side.


    And it continues, the battles rages: Word games when the definition of Globalism has been and is clearly understood in the context of this conversation.


    My Friend:

    Define Globalist.

    As I have explained to you before, your definition (the King Orange / Alex Jones definition) is a bunch of propaganda. You cannot use the same word to describe two different concepts. When I said there are no “globalists” I was using your definition.

    Here is a further explication on how your right wing propagandists use the word as a slur:
    Conversely, this is what it really means:
    You cannot simplistically prove that Soros is a “globalist” (Alex Jones slur) because he uses the word globalist.


    My response:

    I have plainly and pretty concisely defined Globalism as “I” define it. I have been very specific in what I believe will be the resulting effects from Globalism’s implementation and that would be the necessity of reworking or “Improving” (Subjective) of the American Constitution as it was intended. And IMO that would be deleterious to our country and the world for that matter. Mr. Soros himself has stated as much himself, this power transformation is “necessary”. I have been very, very clear and there can be no confusion on your part related to my thinking on the subject. None what so ever, and your continued rhetoric on the subject is just an attempt not to better understand but to obfuscate.

    When I put the word Globalist in quotations that indicates what my interpretation of what Mr. Soros has subjectively transmitted to me about his intents through his own words and actions. This is based on the organizations and causes that he plainly and clearly supports so generously with his money, and his statements on the subject. Want to know what a man really thinks and is about? Learn what he spends his money on. And Mr. Soros has plainly indicated to me what the results of his activities will or must result in.

    So how the word Globalist is defined in the media is of no concern to me, you must by now clearly understand my definition and if it is a slur to you then so be it. The word is offensive to me also, but obviously for a different reason. Its all how you choose to see and interpret it. And that brings us to our next and related issue: “Progressivism”. What the hell is that?

    And this conversation is a great example of how a segment of “Progressivism” operates. As in all Leftist oriented psychological operations words and terms are very important and are usurped and redefined to where up is down, left is right and good is bad. With only the best intentions of course.

    The term itself is an example of how it operates, “Progressive”, who would not want to make progress? Or “Democrat Socialist”, who does not want to be Democratic? If your not for Democracy then you must be something else, maybe a Nazi? Maybe a White Supremacist? And in reality it is just the repackaging of Socialism in an attempt to make it more palatable for the young and pliable in the masses.
