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.

“N-Word Science” Proves You’re a Racist!

Link here. The author delves into the so-called “science” of some of the most hyped “white supremacy” academic research, and finds it not only wanting, he finds it downright garbage and not worth the recycled paper it is written on.

No surprise. Race and gender studies are all lies and bigotry, designed not to improve the knowledge of the human race, but to slander all whites, to dehumanize them, and to make it justifiable to treat them as second-class citizens.

I liked his opening however:

With summer 2020 finally in the rearview mirror, and after seven months of “two weeks to flatten the curve,” I’m getting a little sick of “the science.” Not science, mind you, but theee science, the thing that leftists keep assuring us exists—a singular, canonical truth we all must obey. Mind you, it sure seems like there’s not a great deal of agreement about “the science” regarding COVID: You don’t need masks/You do need masks. Hydroxychloroquine doesn’t work/Hydroxychloroquine totally works. Sunlight doesn’t help/Sunlight helps. COVID doesn’t linger in the air/COVID totally lingers in the air/COVID doesn’t linger after all.

Large crowds spread COVID/Large crowds don’t spread COVID (if it’s a BLM crowd).

Theee science is whatever today’s CNN home page says it is. If that happens to contradict yesterday’s home page, well, that’s your fault for having a memory. [emphasis in original]

The number of lies and inconsistencies coming from the “We’re all gonna die from COVID-19” crowd is legion. In this one short quote he sums the worst up quite succinctly.

    “COVID doesn’t linger in the air/COVID totally lingers in the air/COVID doesn’t linger after all.” Now COVID lingers again. LOL, you nailed it.

    On the reality of the virus:

    “Life has largely returned to normal in Sweden, and it all happened without the economy-destroying non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPI) demanded by the “public health expert” class, who guaranteed that chaos would come to every country that disobeyed their commands to hit the self-destruct button for their nations.”

    On the reality of a “Racist” America:

    Race industry Marxist master manipulators : “You don’t love me / us so I must destroy you, you don’t even like me.”

    Rational America: “But I respect you. Do as you please, have at all of the opportunity that exists in America for you, build a good life for yourself, what can you not do in America today that requires me to love or even like you? NOTHING! Not in 2020 anyway. Live in today in the light and what is, do not live in the past in the dark in what was.”

    Living in the dark past only serves to promote resentment and it is being used in the political realm as a weapon of fear and retribution in the raw pursuit of political power. Pure and simple.

    Reminds me of a meme I stole the other day:

    “Do not call it SCIENCE if you aren’t allowed to question it. Call it a BELIEF SYSTEM. Call it a RELIGION. Call it a CULT.
    But stop calling it SCIENCE.”

    I keep meaning to make the sign: Science is not real;it is imaginary and irrational: e^pi(i) = 1 (correctly fonted, of course).

    “”In accordance to the principles of Doublethink, it does not matter if the war is not real, or when it is, that victory is not possible. The war is not meant to be won. It is meant to be continuous. The essential act of modern warfare is the destruction of the produce of human labor. A hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. In principle, the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects. And its object is not victory over Eurasia or Eastasia, but to keep the very structure of society intact.””
    Quote from 1984

    Are there no billboards with ads on the 405?

    Are they going to take those down?

    The masks fell away a long time ago in the People’s Republic of California.

    You will be made to submit.
    I hope they, whoever put it up, re-erects the sign.
    However, I am almost certain they will face arrest.
