America’s Far Right Isn’t Authoritarian. It’s Anti-Statist.

America’s Far Right Isn’t Authoritarian. It’s Anti-Statist.To counter a threat we must first define it. Donald Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric and volatile behavior are distorting our ability to see far-right extremism for what it really is: virulent anti-statism. To the commentators and pundits who consider Trump an authoritarian, last Wednesday’s attack on the Capitol confirmed him as a dictator-in-waiting and proved that far-right extremism is, at its core, reactionary and authoritarian. But this narrative ascribes to Trump far more influence than he actually wields, and it falls apart upon even a cursory review of the varied goals of far-right groups. Second Amendment groups, for example, want to erect a permanent bulwark against gun control. Christian groups are pushing back agains...

Air Force Space Command

Air Force Space Command Space is a vital component to any military campaign. It is here that our military satellites orbit the earth, relaying critical and sometimes highly sensitive data to our ground forces. But space is becoming more and more cluttered with over 13,000 man-made objects floating around our planet. Itʼs the responsibility of the U.S. Air Forceʼs Joint Space Operations Center to track and monitor all of these objects to protect our assets in space. http://www.facebook.com/USairforce http://www.airforce.com/

SpaceX wins contracts for lunar lander, environmental satellite launches

SpaceX wins contracts for lunar lander, environmental satellite launchesWASHINGTON — SpaceX secured contracts Jan. 13 for the launches of a commercial lunar lander mission backed by NASA as well as a privately funded satellite to track methane emissions. Intuitive Machines announced that it selected SpaceX for the launch of its IM-2 lunar lander mission on a Falcon 9 rocket no earlier than 2022. IM-2 will land in the south polar region of the moon carrying payloads arranged through the agency’s Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) program in October. The IM-2 mission will fly a drilling experiment called Polar Resources Ice Mining Experiment 1 (PRIME-1), which will look for water ice below the lunar surface. Intuitive Machines said that, besides the PRIME-1 drill, two other NASA techn...

The Mini Space Shuttle Joins SpaceX and Boeing In Orbit | X-37B March 17th 2020 Launch

The Mini Space Shuttle Joins SpaceX and Boeing In Orbit | X-37B March 17th 2020 Launch The US Space Force X-37B unmanned space plane launched May 17th, 2020 from Cape Canaveral, ten days before the scheduled May 27th launch of the manned SpaceX Dragon 2 Demo 2 mission. It is likely that when SpaceX’s Dragon 2 returns to space later in 2020 and when both of Boeing’s planned manned Starliner missions occurs in 2021, the X-37B will still be in orbit as the space plane is designed for multi-year missions. Join us as we go over what the X-37B is, its current mission, possible future variants, and why the Space Force is flying it. #BelatedTech #Boeing #X-37B #SpaceX #ElonMusk #NASA #ULA #Dragon2 #ISS #Starliner #SpaceShuttle OTHER SPACE AND SPACEX EPISODES: Episode 32...

Mr. Vice President, Now Is the Time

Mr. Vice President, Now Is the Time An existential threat requires a unified response.In the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, part of which was aimed at the Capitol Building, Americans united behind President George W. Bush despite their feelings toward the results of a disputed election just 10 months earlier. Today, our Republic requires another such moment of unity. Tragically, President Donald Trump has shown himself incapable of acting in anyone’s interest but his own. But we cannot wait until the new Biden administration takes office, lest America be seen as just another dictatorship where a new government’s first order of business is to punish the supporters of its predecessor.This is therefore Vice President Mike Pence’s moment to lead. He must unify the nation. He mus...
