This is just too funny not to share:

Forwarding "We will fight until the last American" as the new NATO motto.

So, just what do the idiot democrats want to be investigated? All the witnesses refute her story! All she has is character references and a few people who can say, she mentioned it, a few years ago, never using Kavanaugh name.    Based on that, and not knowing a date, time or location, they literally have nothing to investigate. 

 

It's also clear, that cunt Di Fi, hid Ford's letter from the committee so she had something to spring on them at the last minute and fuck Ford wanting to be anonymous. Diane Feinstein is an embarrassment to the human race, who is so old and senile, she probably forgot she leaked it. She just straight up lied right to the American people. 

 

I listened to almost the whole thing, and at first the Reps seemed weak, but the prosecutor did chip away enough at Fords credibility, to make it seem like her calling out she can 100% identify Kavanaugh, but basically nothing else of substance. What she said about memory doesn't fit with the current science. Basically, she came off as a confused, weird woman, who probably had his name planted in her memory at best and does not actually remember as well as she claims, or a political hack/operative at worst. But this all leave the Dems with no sound bites of big-name reps attacking a "victim".   Kavanaugh came out of the corner strong, handled the questions well, and the Dems almost universally came off as assholes. 

 

I think this is a win. 

 

The one fact that came out of this that no one can dispute, is that Diane Feinstein played games with the committee and fucked both Ford and Kavanaugh, so she could delay the whole process. Normally this would have all been handled in secret, as Ford had requested.

It seems the Democrat grand strategy has been to hammer enough Jello against the wall to see if it will stick, hoping that Trump, Kavanaugh, or a couple GOP Senators would call for the nomination to be pulled.

The other tactic has been to delay this farce until after the midterms which is why the Democrats were trying to goad Kavanaugh into asking for an FBI investigation - which would take months - in order to “clear his name”.

 

As for the Ford lady, she sounded mentally ill on the radio. No surprise she’s a professor of psychology.

Speaking of political ramifications, I find it interesting that Sen. Feinstein’s poll numbers are terrible.

 

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2018/senate/ca/california_senate_feinstein_vs_de_leon-6592.html

 

The latest poll has her at 40 percent, and I’ve yet to see her get within sniffing distance of 50. And that’s in Commiefornia. 40 percent is lower than Trump numbers which are supposedly so terrible.

 

While I don’t hold any hope of the sacrificial GOP opponent winning, it is indicative to me of how much displeasure the average Dem voter has with their incumbent candidates despite the “MUH BLUE WAVE” narrative.

The horrible effect McCain had on the Republicans was much worse than I thought, his death really seems to be a blow to the Dems, Graham is like a new man, and he's pissed!

Yeah, the extreme left around here hates her ass. She's to moderate for them.  Difi is the kind of asshole,  who gets CCW permits for people on her staff but doesn't want the dirty masses to have anything but single shot .22 short pistols.

Its not that she's too moderate. It's that she's too much of a career political shitlord. She's long time dirty as fuck establishment, just like much of anyone who's been in Washington for longer than 2 terms.

Yeah, she's my Senator, I know all about her being a slimy scumbag. She used to be an effective slimy scumbag, now she is a senile old bat, who's staff tries to manage and keep her from embarrassing herself, between diaper changes.

The saddest thing is she wants to keep her seat! 

 

Of course, our other Senator is also a slimy scumbag, just more into hating white men, and identity politics. 

 

California is a one-party state, Democrat control of everything, and everything is fucked up.

That prosecutor was a beast. I know she got Ford to basically make an idiot of herself multiple times but there are two that really stood out. The segment about how she was apparently frightened of flying...but apparently would take vacations to French Polynesia and Tahiti and shit. Then she absolutely broke her on the wheel of questioning how she avoided being interviewed by a professional and instead opted for this farcical method, which the prosecutor led into by making the "Psychology Professor" admit to the difference between those interview methods.

 

The Ford segment was like a slow drip of ruin and Kavenaugh was an absolute avalanche.

Oh yeah, it was brutal!  It was subtle though and the mainstream media is ignoring it.  I wonder if the Dems will stick her with the Lawyer bills since she failed them.

Apparently her currently lawyer was recommended to her by Feinstein. I suppose after flogging Feinstein in the streets she can be made to pay for the lawyer too. Since the whole dumb strategy seems to have been her brain child.

Yeah, her story is coming apart, them Dems are freaking out and they are making all kinds of threats on twitter, doxxing Republican Senators and Generally acting like entitled children so basically par for the course since November of 2016.   

 

It's like people of the leftest bent have forgotten you need evidence to ruin someone's life, and vague accusations by what is looking to be like a lightweight democrat operative, have backfired on them. 

 

Maybe the Karma Gods will strike down that evil commie RDB next.

I've been around a lot of intersectional feminists that this new kind of burden of proof is being pushed by. These people have a completely different moral compass, utterly foreign to a liberal individualist society. The leftists in my experience evaluate things by identity. You can literally be more or less guilty of something by your identity to some of these people. 

 

 

Also Diane Feinstein...Kamala Harris...Maxine Waters...Nancy Pelosi....just fucking sink into the ocean already California.

How would his life be ruined if he was not selected as a Supreme Court Justice? Serious question.  The whole selection process is basically a really involved job interview. If he doesn't get the job, how is his life ruined? He's still a Superior Court Judge, IIRC.

 

I've been bitching out a few people about the whole 'burden of proof' dialogue.  Both on the left for calling for the FBI to investigate the guy to those on the right for saying stuff like this will 'ruin his life.'  What is the burden of proof for deciding that a Candidate for a job isn't the right fit? Because that's what this process is. To see if Kavenaugh (sp) is fit to be a member of the Supreme Court.  Now, I thought that the Republicans would just shove this guy through... they had the votes from the start. But man, this has been an ugly process. It's a very different process than selecting a Supreme Court Judge up here in Canuckistan.  The process is much less political here.

Because you don't just walk away from a national smear campaign to label you a rapist. Unless you suddenly think that the label "rapist" doesn't hold any weight in society.

Except the narrative is falling apart without even a serious investigation.  Frankly, if an investigation went through, there might be grounds for perjury and conspiracy charges to be filed by the FBI, from what I'm looking at.

 

And if there was a chance that a Supreme Court Judge who is pretty much appointed for life was a rapist, I'd think that it should be checked out pretty thoroughly.  And frankly, if I was the Judge, I'd want to have my name pretty convincingly cleared.  Now after some of the discussions I've had here, I dunno if I'd trust the FBI to be the agency doing the investigation, but that has to do with the competence of the people running that organization.  Also, why the fuck hasn't he filed slander/libel charges?

They called the man a teen gang rapists, and to a shit ton of leftist, him not getting on the court would be enough to persecute him. There was also talk of if he slipped, hitting him with lying under Oath. They talk of impeaching him off the current court too.  If you think the shit they accused this man of will not have an effect on his life you're not paying enough attention.  

 

I guess your OK with blatant politically trickery and them sitting on this for over a month when it could have been looked into? That makes this seem like a blatant political trick, something the left is renowned for.  

 

When the Republicans stopped Obamas Court pick, they did it with the political power the US voters gave them after Obama shit the bed.  They did not assassinate the man's character. Since the voters here stripped the left of power, all they have left is dirty tricks, so that's what they use, and now they have hit a new low. On top of that, as has been shown, they do not believe in a key American principal anymore, the right to be presumed innocent.  I suppose this time not using pubic hairs is one improvement. 

 

 

It supposed to be less political here too Bele, they are supposed to do this stuff behind closed doors, so things can be kept confidential, the Dems broke the process on purpose to make it as ugly as they could.

      After seeing the rampant crack down on speech in the UK, I decided that more should be done than just Thoughts and Prayers. 
       
      I know that it's a scary time for our UK members. Knowing that what you say on the internet can put you on the wrong side of a Bobby's nightstick, well, I find that despicable. 
       
      So I've created this place for all your impure or degenerate thoughts. Here's how it works. 
       
      Perhaps you want to say something "offensive". Instead of saying it yourself, you can message any US member of this forum and have them act as your avatar of avarice. 
       
      For example, say you had a particularly heinous fish and chips at the local pub. You may want to say, "Oi, that cheeky fucker Barnaby William can't do a proper chip if he had a fryer for hands!"
       
      This on it's own could send you straight to jail for defamation. Moreso, if instead of chips that sent you reeling it happened to be a kebab from Omar down the street. 
       
      Now your crime has gone from offensive to racially insensitive!
       
      Anytime such an urge comes along, call on your ex colonial friends. We will translate and post your complaint for all the world to revel in, free of charge!
       
      I personally think Omar should learn to pull the fucking kebab off heat before it's crisper than his wife's crotch and blacker than his beard. That tosser!
       
      See? Don't you feel better? And now, no one will be knocking on your door, serving you with a summons for being a racist git.

      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.

      Like I said a couple days ago actually, I said I thought it was very likely that Ma Ying-Jeou would lose the next election as he and his administration are very unpopular, and I guess it turned out to be true, also, aside from being the first female president, She's also the second candidate to win under the Democratic Progressive Party as opposed to the more traditonal Kuomintang which has held it for 5 (arguably 6) terms. and her party has also won a majority in the legislative Yuan, which is actually a pretty significant swing.
