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.

Today’s blacklisted American: Democrat endorses racial discrimination and press censorship aimed at whites

Discriminated against by Chicago Democrats
Eagerly discriminated against by Democrats

Blacklists and segregation are back and the Democrats have got ’em: Lori Lightfoot, the Democratic Party mayor of Chicago, recently and enthusiastically defended her past racial disciminatory policy of refusing to give any one-on-one interviews to white reporters, saying she intends to do it again.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she would “absolutely” grant interviews only to journalists of color again after she drew waves of backlash earlier in the year when she announced the policy.

“I would absolutely do it again. I’m unapologetic about it because it spurred a very important conversation, a conversation that needed to happen, that should have happened a long time ago,” the Democrat said on a segment of the New York Times’s podcast Sway, released on Monday.

“Here is the bottom line for me: To state the obvious, I’m a black woman mayor,” she said. “I’m the mayor of the third-largest city in the country. Obviously, I have a platform, and it’s important to me to advocate on things that I believe are important. Going back to why I ran — to disrupt the status quo. The media is critically important to our democracy. … The media is in a time of incredible upheaval and disruption, but our City Hall press corps looks like it’s 1950 or 1970.”


Though she claims her reasoning is justified because she is black, the real reason she is in favor of racial discrimination is because she is a Democrat. It was the Democratic Party in the south that imposed segregation and the oppression of blacks. It is now the Democratic Party that wants to do the same to whites. Nothing has changed but the skin colors. That party, after a short half century or so of reform where its less racist elements gained control of the party and helped the Republicans — the party of Lincoln and abolition — to end discrimination and segregation against blacks, has returned to its roots of bigotry, hatred, and racial discrimination.

Remember, it was the Democrats who politically controlled the southern states for more than a century after the Civil War. During that time they wrote, and mercilessly enforced, the racial Jim Crows laws that oppressed blacks, often using their KKK storm troopers to violently to make sure there was no opposition. They now wish to bring these laws and this oppressive system back, using now their storm troopers in Antifa and BLM as their thugs. That they have attempted to make believe that reasonable election reform are the same thing as Jim Crow simply proves this point. They need to distract ordinary people from their agenda of power and bigotry.

Are you still a Democrat? This is what you are voting for. The politicians in this party now routinely hold such views, proven by their hostility of the phrase “all lives matter.” To them, only the minority races they approve of should be protected. All others must be oppressed. Such beliefs are fundamentally un-American, and should be rejected by everyone, no matter what their race or ethnicity.
