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.

Seven recent examples of leftists threatening to murder their opponents

They’re coming for you next: If you want to know what is in store for those who oppose the Democratic Party and its leftist storm-troopers, this article outlines just seven public examples of Democratic Party and leftist activists calling for the murder of their opponents, not because they committed crimes, but because they simply did not agree with the agenda of the left.

Here’s just one example, from a CNN contributor:

[O]n Aug. 4, 2019, a supposed religious scholar and CNN contributor Reza Aslan announced on Twitter — a tweet still up as of Oct. 22 — that all Trump supporters “must be eradicated from society” along with Trump, and that there is “no longer any room for nuance.” Aslan has nearly 300,000 followers.

His extremely defamatory and threatening tweet reads verbatim: “The President is a white nationalist terror leader. His supporters — ALL OF THEM — are by definition white nationalist terror supporters. The MAGA hat is a KKK hood. And his evil, racist scourge must be eradicated from society.”

None of the examples cited are out of the ordinary. Such statements have become increasing typical from all levels of Democratic Party support, from on high and down low. They have been matched by numerous actions reminiscent of NAZI Germany, from rioting to looting to intimidation to attacking innocent Trump supporters whenever they are spotted.

Just remember this when you vote. If the Democrats win, they will expect total obedience and compliance, or they will be coming for you next.

    But he was obviously shut down by Facebook and Twitter.

    I am sure that someone who pumps out such vitriol and hatred on social media has by this time been banned totally.

    Ill check:

    No it does not appear that he has been banned. Social must still be investigating his account, Im sure its coming soon.

    Just like social media immediately and righteously set upon the Post and the Hunter Biden story and banned its transmittal on their platforms.

    Quote: “We banned the Hunter Biden computer story, even if it is probably true”.

    I know, it sounds crazy. That is BECAUSE IT IS CRAZY.

    A quote summarizes the situation quite well:

    In short: “Trump declines the authority of the cultural sectors that most assertively claim it. That’s the conflict, and that’s why it’s being played in a relentless tone of hysteria. There are credentialing authorities — and credential-holding elites — who can see the path to their own obsolescence. Like the empress dowager, they will not go quietly.”

    Excerpted from the end of:

    Mr. Zimmerman:

    These terrible people deserve the full punishment of the law once found guilty by juries of their peers. There is no excuse for these actions. What is wrong with some folks?

    Thank you for illuminating this matter. I look forward to future postings highlighting similar types of crimes committed by folks on the right.

    BTW, I have seen several comments from Bernard that question why you left a posting up without repercussions that called for the death of a democrat(s). Is that true?
