The Rope-a-dope strategy is working. Let the Dems wear themselves out for a year with this Russian Collusion nonsense, and then throw a knock out punch just before the midterms.

Disregard all those congressmen calling for the release of the memo, this is just another Russian propaganda campaign for undermining our democracy.  Thanks for having this Debunked! for me Snopes!

Anyone who posts on 4chan is a Russian troll to these people.

Are they really pulling a George Takei on this? "Anything I don't like is Russian collusion"

 

The Russians are colluding with the Republicans to distract everyone from the Russian collusion investigation by promoting a meme about the Russian collusion investigation! Those sneaky bastards! 

 

Holy crap these people make McCarthyism look tame. Also, it's not like the Russians would have any motivations to throw the US in to further political turmoil and /or seek revenge against the Obama administration for starting a shit storm in one of their client states.

 

If only Putin would shitpost like Trump. I would love to see him tweet something like "All Russians are liars". Then again, that might not work, the left seems to be resistant to paradoxes, considering that there entire existence is one at this point.

" SCHIFF: “Interestingly enough, they’ve made common cause, once again, with Russian bots because Russian bots are pushing their narrative out there. It’s in a redux of the campaign. We have Julian Assange and Wikileaks and Russian trolls and bots saying, you know, hashtag whatever the GOP narrative is. That ought to tell you a lot about what’s driving this."

Maybe they were in on it with Obama and Hillary, and really need to distract the public on this. The levels of corruption they Obama instilled into the government makes our just system seem like some third world shithole. Sadly the media has gone to such shit in this country, they've lost the chance to get Pulitzers for breaking the story on Watergate 2.0 the Democrat Democrat edition.

A source inside Twitter is skeptical that the #releasethememo push is coming from Russian twitterbots.

 

The Democrats have scored two own goals in as many days.  The first was blinking and ending the government shutdown in exchange for nothing.  That was fucking stupid, but not anywhere near as stupid as the next thing they did, which was attempt to paint the push to get the FISA abuses memo released as foreign interference.

 

This is an idiotic strategy.  Trump was a long-tail candidate who brought together a diverse base of support from disparate groups that have little history of working together effectively.  One of the most problematic groups in his alliance has always been the establishment Republicans.  The smart, effective play for the Democrats has always been to divide these groups, who don't really like each other.  By painting a general Republican muckraking push with the same brush of foreign collusion as the Democrats have been using to attack Trump, they are accomplishing for Trump what a year of alternately cajoling and bullying could not; pushing the establishment Republicans into Trump's camp.  

 

This is not how you politics.

That picture is some uncanny valley ventriloquist mannequin shit right there.

 

Also, are they so disorganized that the best thing they can come up with is a pathetic mimic of a serious topic? No matter how much they want this memo to mask the real one that people actually care about, it will fade into obscurity at best. This might bring the original memo to the attention of people who previously didn't have it in their news cycle. Good job.

The thing about the current state of the Democratic party is that it is absolutely in shambles. Without the progressive zeitgeist they have nothing. I'll need to find the clip of one of the dnc people screaming at the board about how most of their funds have been funneled to a handful of "consultants". It was kind of nuts to listen to.

      i personally support it, by finding the KGB Felix Dzerzhinsky greatly improved state scurrility both inside the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and abroad (their jurisdiction was only domestic, but they kept the internationally influential people safe at night)   a dedicated defender of both the Revolution and all the Soviet peoples     what do you think of this news?

      Colonization Of The Solar System

       
      This thread is for discussing the colonization of the solar system, mainly focusing on Mars and the Moon since they are the most relevant. 
      Main topics include transportation, industry, agriculture, economics, civil engineering,  energy production and distribution, habitation, ethics and politics. 
       
       
       
       
      First order of business, our glories tech messiah Elon Musk has set his eyes on Mars:
      Reason stated? Because being a interplanetary species beats being a single planetary species. 
       
      How does he plan to do this?
      By sending two cargo ships by 2022 to Mars for surveying and building  basic infrastructure, then two years later in 2024 sending 4 ships, two cargo ships and two crewed ships to start the colonization. First thing would be to build fuel refineries and expanding infrastructure to support more ships, then starting to mine and build industry. 
       
      This could mark a new era in human history, a second colonization era, this time without the genocides. The economic potentials are incredible, a single asteroid could easily support the entire earths gold, silver and platinum production for a decade. The moon holds a lot of valuable Helium 3, which right now is worth 12 000 dollars per kilogram! Helium is a excellent material for nuclear reactors. 
       
       
       

       
       
      Speaking about the moon, several companies have set their eyes on the moon, and for good reason.
      In my opinion,  the moon has the possibility of becoming a mayor trade hub for the solar system.  Why is this? Simply put, the earth has a few pesky things called gravity, atmosphere and environmentalists. This makes launching rockets off the moon much cheaper. The moon could even have a space elevator with current technology!  If we consider Elon Musk's plan to travel to Mars, then the Moon should be able to supply cheaper fuel and spaceship parts to space, to then be sent to Mars. The Moon is also rich in minerals that have not sunk to the core yet, and also has a huge amount of rare earth metals, which demands are rapidly increasing. Simply put, the Moon would end up as a large exporter to both the earth and potentially Mars. Importing from earth would almost always be more expensive compared to a industrialized Moon. 
       
      Now how would we go about colonizing the moon? Honestly, in concept it is quite simple.When considering locations, the South pole seems like the best candidate. This is because of it's constant sun spots, which could give 24 hour solar power to the colony and give constant sunlight to plants without huge power usage. The south pole also contain dark spots which contains large amount of frozen water, which would be used to sustain the agriculture and to make rocket fuel. It is true that the equator has the largest amounts of Helium 3 and the best location for rocket launches. However, with the lack of constant sunlight and frequent solar winds and meteor impacts, makes to unsuited for initial colonization. If the SpaceX's BFR successes, then it would be the main means of transporting materials to the moon until infrastructure is properly developed. Later a heavy lifter would replace it when transporting goods to and from the lunar surface, and specialized cargo ship for trans portion between the Moon, Earth and Mars. A space elevator would reduce prices further in the future.  Most likely, a trade station would be set up in CIS lunar space and Earth orbit which would house large fuel tanks and be able to hold the cargo from  cargo ships and heavy lifters. Sun ports would be designated depending on their amount of sunlight. Year around sunlight spots would be dedicated to solar panels and agriculture. Varying sun spots would be used for storage, landing pads and in general everything. Dark spots would be designated to mining to extract its valuable water. Power production would be inistially almost purely solar, with some back up and smoothing out generators. Later nuclear reactors would take over, but serve as a secondary backup energy source. 
       
       
      The plan:
      If we can assume the BFR is a success, then we have roughly 150 ton of payload to work with per spaceship. The first spaceship would contain a satellite to survey colonization spot. Everything would be robotic at first. Several robots capable of building a LZ for future ships,  mining of the lunar surface for making solar panels for energy production, then mining and refinement for fuel for future expeditions. The lunar colony would be based underground, room and pillar mining would be used to cheaply create room that is also shielded from radiation and surface hazards. Copying the mighty tech priest, a second ship would come with people and more equipment. With this more large scale mining and ore refinement would be started. Eventually beginning to manufacturing their own goods. Routinely BFRs would supply the colony with special equipment like electronics, special minerals and advanced equipment and food until the agricultural sector can support the colony.  The colony would start to export Helium 3 and rocket fuel, as well as spacecraft parts and scientific materials. Eventually becoming self sustaining, it would stop importing food and equipment, manufacturing it all themselves to save costs. 
       
      I am not the best in agriculture, so if some knowledge people could teach us here about closed loop farming, or some way of cultivating the lunar soil. Feel free to do so.
       
       
      Mining:
      I found a article here about the composition of the lunar soil and the use for it's main components:

      In short, the moon has large amounts of oxygen, silicon, aluminum, calcium, iron, magnesium and titanium in it's soil.
      How do we refine them? By doing this.
       
      Aluminum could be used for most kinds of wiring to requiring high conductivity to density ratio. Meaning power lines, building cables and such. Aluminum is not very suited for building structures on the surface because of the varying temperatures causing it to expand and contract. Iron or steel is better suited here. Aluminum could however be used in underground structures where temperatures are more stable.  Aluminum would also most likely end up as the main lunar rocket fuel. Yes, aluminum as rocket fuel. Just look at things like ALICE, or Aluminum-oxygen. Aluminum-oxygen would probably win out since ALICE uses water, which would be prioritized for the BFRs, since I am pretty sure they are not multi-fuel. 
       More on aluminum rocket fuel here:

      Believe it or not, but calcium is actually a excellent conductor, about 12% better than copper. So why do we not use it on earth? Because it has a tendency to spontaneously combust in the atmosphere. In a vacuum however, this does not pose a problem. I does however need to be coated in a material so it does not deteriorate. This makes it suited for "outdoor" products and compact electrical systems like electric motors. Yes, a calcium electric motor.
