      The Freedom Caucus has been used by a tool by Nancy Pelosi yet again.
      The reconciliation bill surely had risks of not being a real repeal because of the “phases”.
      But now the Freedom Caucus is screwed because they have just ensured there will not be a clean repeal. Now, thanks to this defeat the GOP has cover to work with the democrats and get ready for “pairing”
      For every roll back of Obamacare taxes,, there will be two layers to help stabilize Obamacare and pave the road to single payer.

      The art of the deal, is not to take yourself out of the deal. That is what the FC just did.

        The Freedom Caucus is a weird enigma they make Ryan Speaker yet they defeat his bill ? Supposedly his greatest achievement? Then he pulls the bill so these bums are not on record for their deceit and lies… Andwas it confirmed Ryan had a clandestine meeting away from his SS protection later that evening after the vote ? As we all well know there is more here than meets the eye. Something is really, really rotten. Tax cuts are the next issue to be taken down. It remains to be seen if this job has been given to the House or Senate. I think the courts have been assigned as the point man on all things imigation. UNIPARTY STOP TRUMP AT ALL COSTS !!! No change ever in the status quo….

          I think Trump spared the FC members from having to vote because he does like them. The FC represents of a lot of Trumps real supporters. The vote was going to be scored by the right to life, so because of the weak Planned Parenthood part of it, a no vote would have hurt the those who would have voted no.

            “When I became the NASA administrator — or before I became the NASA administrator — he (Obama) charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science … and math and engineering,” Bolden said in the interview. 

            By any measure, that third edict was an extraordinarily odd emphasis for a POTUS. How is it in the wheelhouse of a NASA administrator to make Muslims feel good about their ancient contribution to science? It’s difficult to escape the observation that Obama is a sympathizer.

      Yes Venus would be the perfect place to send the dems to.

      Venus is about the same size as the Earth. But it has very long days because it takes eight months to rotate one time. And it’s the only planet that is retrograde–it rotates in the opposite direction of all the other planets in our galaxy. As a result, its atmospheric pressure is ninety two times greater than the Earth’s. The upper clouds of Venus drip sulfuric acid, and there are surface hurricane winds constantly, along with deafening thunder and lightening strikes, and almost a one thousand degree surface temperature.

      Perfect for Schumer, Pelosi, and their followers.

          John Carpenter was WAY ahead of his time with that one.

          I always loved this guy, because his films are a mass of subtext and cultural references that are pure gold for those who love to dig deeply on film. He urges the viewer to question everything, and then question that. He truly realized that the questions are more important than the answers.

          “Most films in Carpenter’s career were initially commercial and critical failures, with the notable exceptions of Halloween (1978), The Fog (1980), Escape from New York (1981), and Starman (1984). However, many of Carpenter’s films from the 1970s and the 1980s have come to be viewed as cult classics, and he has been acknowledged as an influential filmmaker.”

          At the time, the elite and the enemedia accused “They Live” of being directed at the Japanese, but the fact that it is far more relevant now, shows that Carpenter was telling the truth when he said it wasn’t. He was talking about things that are far deeper than the economics of that time.

        As somebody who is intensely watching the TERRIBLE science-based problems facing America (abused climate science, federal overreach, Obama energy madness, bad actors having more active space-tech programs than us, etc., etc.), all of which Trump has to solve, I see this as genius. I’ve had ring-side seats to the engineered decline of American science, and this is designed to utterly commit us to reversing it.

        I’m not sure who is behind this decision to move the NASA piece early, and in this way, but whoever they are, they are incredibly smart. They actually GET the science problems Trump faces, and have an optimal solution.

        What he’s doing is moving chess pieces into position to unstoppably solve thornier problems. The very important part that gives this away is not the science itself, but the words of the speech. Trump and his people actually get the “meta-science” – the how and why of the national conduct of science – that fixes the science. In other words, he gets that its not a software problem – it’s an operating system and BIOS problem. The damage was deep and he knows where it is. Trump could not have sent better code about how they understand the lower-level problems facing not just American science, but world science, of which we used to be leaders. And he knows how to fix it.

        This is good. Very good. But if the other side thinks it’s just a shiny object, that is all the better.

        Please have faith in Trump on this. Trump and his people know exactly what they are doing here.

            Very glad I listened to this, and didn’t skip it, saying to myself “Yeah, yeah – another NASA promo. Lofty words, yada yada yada. Probably Ivanka’s doing. Not gonna waste my time. It’s good they’re rebooting NASA, but whatever. A commercial for the masses.”

            LOL. I would have missed it completely. This is the best news of the day by far.

            After an administration that ALLEGEDLY understood science – and then went out of its way to push, wheedle, threaten and blackmail science into a politically desirable path – it’s wonderful to hear from people who actually understand how science is supposed to be conducted.

            Don’t tell science what the answers are supposed to be. Science needs to be free to change its mind.

            Science is one of the oldest social networks on the planet, and it was basically run by an internal standard of 100% truth and 0% politics. Nothing has ever messed it up as much as Soviets, Nazis, and American Alinskyites gaining control of it.

            SIGH. Wonderful stuff. They really are going to fix things.

            I’m really curious now who is behind this stuff. They must have some really excellent people behind their policy.

        • I don’t know who is behind this, wolfmoon, but Sen. Cruz introduced the bill on Feb. 17, 2017. The bill authorizes spending of $19 billion for that far-reaching program. It was passed that day by unanimous consent and sent to the House. Debated 40 minutes, then passed by voice vote on March 7. Was sent to Senate for presentation to the President on March 9 for his signature.

    No tin foil hat required to see it.

    Whew!! deep breath…
    Our President, is being the
    Great Leader that he is.
    He May get MAGA done,
    before their eyes can see it.
    Yesterday’s EO was a Great,
    in your face, to the Left!
    But the winds are Calm in the Eye.
    The Election was the first wall of the storm.
    Now, the winds, will come from the Opposite direction, and could Stall.
    PRAY for Our President!
    Pray for Our Country!
    Pray, that God’s Will be done, above All Others.
    And Prepare…

          Every good thing we propose in space, always meets the “better spent elsewhere” crowd.

          I say, that’s rubbish. We need to keep on keeping on. Our Space Ventures lead to ever more competence and understanding, upon which will be based ever more bold Ventures, in Space.

          Protecting this Planet, and, Heaven forbid, facing a risk unseen or simply unstoppable, we would be very well off as a Species to be living on Mars and reaching beyond.

          But Every Single Time I hear the same refrain, better spent elsewhere. That is a fool’s choice, and not only in my mind. There will come a time when we rue our past failures in establishing proper priorities.

            But even beyond this, Trump is using NASA to kick the legs out from under bad climate science. It’s GENIUS. He knows that more truth is the best defense of truth under assault by the Alinskyites and global power-mongers. He and his people get this at so many levels, it boggles the mind. He fights equations with better equations – not oppositional outputs. And it’s clear that he knows what’s going on, multiple levels above THAT.

      Yet, it’s the same mindset and same shortsightedness. It’s easy to get confused which critical policy is being ripped as “better spent elsewhere.”

      I’ve heard that time and again my entire life. Generally, the sayers are proved wrong, not that they would ever know it, or admit it.

      If this wall was in place when Edwards, the Swimmer, schnookered Reagan, like Ryan did Trump, then there would be no over-saturation of the Labor Pool. Then, our economy would have thrived, parents would have confidence in the American future and would not have destroyed so many of the too few children they conceived. Our social nets would not have been overwhelmed, and the true American vote would not have been canceled by those voting for a get-out-of-work-free-for-life-card.

      Our war-on-drugs wouldn’t be necessary, our sad under-class would not be viewing drugs as a life-style and perceived legitimate field of employment.

      What ills down the road shall we suffer due to such a myopic vision on priorities? We can’t know, and owe it to our children that they never discover any such.

      But anyway, my bad, I thought you were on topic.

            As a kid we always begged to sleep outside, on a tarp, staring at the stars, wondering how all these marvels could even exist, yet at the same time, how could they not?

            Exploration of all our questions is profoundly fascinating and wonderous, providing us ever more puzzles to solve about the very nature of all things. These are indeed worthwhile investments.

            Heck, I’m still POed that we aren’t living on our Moon! “Been there done that” is so untrue! We could know enough by now that arriving at a new, red on the outside, arid, once volcanic body with magma tubes that dwarf the Moon’s, we could set up shop quite quickly.

            Because we literally lived it here, and having practiced arriving at a region with many identified tubes and likely caverns that exceed our imaginations, with only the tools and resources they would have been able to bring on their craft.

            I have ideas I am loathe to share here…Mars has greater potential than anyone appears to have realized…

            Well, think of it this way…in the days of Galileo, what would they have thought of an F16 or a Boeing 747?
            It is pure hubris to think of what we know at this point, or think we know, as the ultimate pinnacle of knowledge.

            The moon is full of Helium-3 and our greatest opportunity for unlimited fusion energy, Fusion energy alone will eliminate the climate change nonsense, break out new technologies, new material design, new propulsion systems. Fusion energy can lead to colonizing new worlds, interstellar travel.

            It ‘s time we dreamed what doesn’t exist again and make it happen.

              Yes, we should be reaching for the stars.

              But we’re stuck with these petty people that care only for their little fiefdoms and the ability to live off the work of others.

              Pleade also note, Athenia, that General Fusion’s device does not require H3, it will use simple hydrogen! Gotta put that hydrogen to use when we’re busy sucking oxygen out of rocks.

              While I have no doubt H3 will be useful, and that some day we can use it in a much smaller device than General Fusion’s, being able to use simple hydrogen found in interstellar space might be an essential part of our arsenal to reach those stars. Kind of like having both “Impulse” and “Warp” drives.

              It sure would help matters here down on Earth too.

              And being able to achieve high velocities quickly in a short distance will be very useful for creating some very special things someday, soon I hope.

              Certainly, we need to master our own solar system in the process.

              I say we use an All-of-the-Above approach on the energy front, and we keep CERN busy to see how we could exploit that energy, when we get a better handle on the very fabric of space-time itself.

                  I know of no H3 generation processes, myself, though wikipedia cites experiments creating up to H7, though not in quantity.

                  As Athenia notes, H3 is found on the Moon due to the conditions there.

                  Near zero atmosphere, near zero magnetic field, very cold, very dusty regolith (not soil, mechanically reduced rock, from asteroids to the Solar wind, called regolith) which has lots of extremely fine particles which the Solar Wind, mostly variations of hydrogen ions I think it was, added in with lots of Cosmic rays, heavier and much faster than the Solar Wind. These bombardments over around 4.5 billion years, has stored up lots of H3 that pretty much stays there, evidentally due in part to the cold and the hard vacuum.

                  H3 should be easier to fuse into Helium than the lighter variants, so it is rightly valued as a fuel for hoped for fusion reactors. Some day. So lunar settlers will be mining many things, including H3.

                  Don’t know all the details on the ions and such, my personal memory banks are exhausted for the day!

                    Argh. I knew I should have passed on this one! Athenia was discussing Helium-3, not Hydrogen-3. Helium-3 goes through a different nuclear reaction process, of course. And yes, it is found on the Moon in greater abundance than on Earth, and, actually, most of the reasons I cited for “H3” naturally occurring generation on the Moon are the same.

                    Both, also, are elements in varying concepts of controlled fusion energy generators. I just zipped straight to the wrong element. And no, I haven’t seen anything to indicate we can generate Helium-3, as we actually can Hydrogen-3, Tritium, in nuclear reactors, which we use to greatly magnify the strength of nuclear bombs. It has a half life of about 12 years and production has dropped way off due to the reductions in bomb production. When Tritium decays, it becomes Helium-3.

                    Check wikipedia, Helium-3, and stroll down to “Industrial Production.” Very interesting. It’s all nuclear reactors these days, they used to siphon it off of fusion bombs and storage as the Tritium there-in decayed, for a long time the principal source was that and bomb production reactors. The Cold War slowed that down. But there are more options where I sent you, the bottom line is that we could produce vast quantities of Tritium via use of different control rods, then wait for it to decay to Helium-3. Or raid certain kinds of heavy water reactors for both Tritium, being Hydrogen-3, and Helium-3.

                    Actually, looking at it, Helium-3 is amazing stuff, and can be used for many worthy purposes.

                    I am SO overdue a dozen hours of sleep right now, that I will embarrass myself no further and depart with all due haste. It was fun while my mind was up!

            • Athena, it is not the fuel source that is the problem with fusion, it is the energy-producing process itself that is causing engineers’ headaches and why we don’t have it yet.

      While I agree that we need to be looking around the front and back yards for new places to improve, let me assure you that better science will make this place livable and awesome for a LONG, LONG time. I don’t look forward so much to new worlds, as the great old/new one this could be.

      The idea that we will inevitably pollute and “use up” this planet, or that we can’t inhabit it for millions if not billions of years, along with a healthy biosphere, is GASLIGHTING. It is pure inevitability gaslighting. With enough energy to clean up after itself, we can AFFORD to keep the place nice and tidy, and survivable on a large scale through almost any cosmic misfortune, too.

      And, interestingly, it is that faith in our own planet which will make us better neighbors, too.

      I firmly believe that Hawking and others like him have been surrounded by Marxist bots who parrot the planetary destruction inevitability theme to get it to go big, when big names sign on. The real purpose – so they can take control. They think the answer is to scare us back into lower levels of science and technology, while simultaneously degrading us spiritually. The answer, IMO, is a smart opposite, which conservatism is much closer to right now. Cherish the good and traditional things which preserve the planet, but learn more so our choices become even smarter. And never let our own “sweet lies” deceive us into more and more bitter ones.

          Social entropy!

          That’s perfect!

          It highlights wolfmoon’s thoughts to a great extent too.

          I have long seen it as a collapse of the very center of what makes us human, what was once more widely disseminated in our Churches: Hope.

          Convinced in the futility of life, is it any wonder that the Masters of the Universe can summon a mob to destroy their own homes and communities, and that of others?

          Hopelessness is what drives the Left. “There’s nothing better so lets just get what we can get,” and blame our misery on those showing, and sharing, a better path. Hate is all they really have.

          Hopelessness drives Nihilism, contempt for any Righteousness and Happiness they encounter. Liberalism truly IS a mental illness.

          Social Entropy sums it up so well.
          It is also a self-fulfilling prophecy.
          Such must be resisted, fought, even.

          Our lives and this existence are not Zero-Sum-Games. We are not destined for misery and extinction. We are destined for greater, so much of that greater we can, and should, create and do our own selves.

          • SS – did you know that that “island” is hypothetical? No one has ever found such an island, but “it must be out there, because, because we are so evil and creating so much plastic and other garbage!” See the GASLIGHTING there?

            Also, don’t worry about the tuna fish. It’s fine. My friend, the commercial fisherman, told me so.

            Sadly, the Hole to Hell may actually occur, but hasn’t manifested itself. Friends of mine, physicists and electrical engineers, spent many sleepless night during the Chernobyl disaster, but the Russians finally got it under control. I think Fukashima may also be under control at this time, but don’t know for sure.

            I just know the disaster-mongers have been wrong, wrong, wrong. Also, they have failed to predict any REAL disasters, like that tsunami a few years ago, that volcano a few years ago. So, relax. Trust in G-d.
