    First he tried to “parody” the president. Now he jokes about jail for senators who get out of line. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff might have been kidding when he kicked off Thursday’s installment of the Democratic tragicomedy known as President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial by alluding to the potential for imprisonment for U.S. senators – but it didn’t go over well at all. “I also want again take this opportunity to thank the senators for their long and considerable attention over the course of the last two days,” he said. “Of course it doesn’t hurt that the morning...

    On December 7, North Korea claimed to have conducted a “very important test” at its Sohae Satellite Launching Station that “will have an important impact on changing the strategic position of the DPRK.”[1] The North Koreans did not describe what was tested, but prior open-source imagery suggests it was a static (ground) test of a large liquid-propellant rocket engine.[2] It remains to be seen what rocket system the engine was associated with: a previously launched intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), intermediate-range ballistic missile, space launch vehicle, or a new system. In any case, the static test could be the precursor to...

    I know the origin of the Russian Collusion story from its inception in July 2015 (it did not start in July 2016: that is a cover-up), and I know something highly significant regarding the corruption of a (former) senior federal official. I know this because of some fishy interactions I had with the FBI from July 2015 until Spring of 2017, including some extremely fishy requests and reactions from them. I did not come forward until two months ago because, once the Russian story emerged as a national political story in late 2017, I began expecting investigators would come tap...

    In the 47 years since the last man set foot on the moon, the space program has changed a great deal. One of those changes has been incorporating mandated affirmative action policies. These policies have had an incredibly negative effect on both the progress in the space program and the engineers whose careers have been destroyed by them. The federal government mandates that a given percentage of work on a government contract go to minority-owned businesses. When building a large and complicated system like a space vehicle, it is almost impossible for a company like Boeing or Lockheed to meet...

Not one, but two glorious nights of NBC’s new, not ‘Must See TV’, but ‘Well, If the Yankee Game Is Rained Out and There Isn’t A Three Stooges Marathon On, Kinda Sorta Gotta See TV!’ Presidential races and nominating contests are supposed to be about the presentation of new ideas. Means by which we can move beyond existing problems facing our country, both real and perceived.

    Sign This New White House Petition for DOJ to Investigate Obama’s Forged ID Documents. Obama's key identity documents are forgeries or stolen. Sheriff Arpaio of AZ investigated them and proved the long form birth certificate PDF file and the draft registration card are forgeries. Obama is using an SSN which was initially issued to a person born in 1890 who was living in CT when it was issued in the mid 1970s, a state that Obama never lived in. It is time that federal investigative agencies look into these forged and stolen ID documents.
