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.

The wine-sipping butchers of Planned Parenthood

The title above is the headline for the article. It is also disgustingly accurate. When I watched the video yesterday I found it incredible to see Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, munch salad and sip wine as she nonchalantly discusses cutting up babies for body parts.

Worse, the effort of Planned Parenthood, the press, and Democratic politicians to excuse this or make believe it didn’t happen is appalling.

The video is below the fold. Watch it. It depicts the result of the slow corruption of American intellectual culture, which has been willing to make excuses for small evils so often in the past few decades that it no longer recognizes the worst form of evil when it stares them in the face.

    Planned Parenthood is the most loathsome taxpayer-funded organization in the country. It, and the progressives that rally around it when scandals inevitably erupt, are members of a death cult–subhumans, every last one of them. And we are expected to believe the loathsome progressives currently in power when they tell us there’s no substance to accusations that death panels are in store for the elderly infirm when Obamacare is fully functional.

    On the media and this story:

    The president of Planned parenthood made a statement:

    “The president of Planned Parenthood on Thursday apologized for the “tone and statements” of its chief medical officer, whose candid comments about fetal organ removal have generated heavy attacks against the organization.”

    The media in its headlines as always attempts to sell clicks and shape public opinion or visa versa or both and only reports / implies in the headline that she is only concerned with the doctors “tone” when she clearly said “tone and statements”. If a person was to just tend to read headlines and not the actual content of the story you would tend to come away with a more depraved impression of the president and the organization than if you were to read the entire article. (I am not defending Planned Parenthood here)

    If a person were to go to Drudge and just read the headlines you would tend to come away with a general impression of existence where there is no hope for anything positive. And I understand that this is done in part to get people to click on the story because it is outrageous but still the general subliminal impression that one comes away with just reading headlines is a very dark one indeed.

    Just to be clear my comment is specifically using this story as an example of media manipulation and choosing to selectively tell half truths in order to create interest and clicks and not about the story itself.
