Apollo 11: leaving the moon

Forty-five years ago today, two men finished walking on the moon after two and a half hours. They then began the second most important part of their trip: coming back alive.

Apollo 11: moonwalk

Forty-five years ago, two men (Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin) set foot on a different world. It was the greatest moment in the history of exploration, and a moment men had anticipated for nearly a century.

Apollo 11: the landing

Forty-five years ago this month, with even the days of the week aligning as they did, three men flew a mission called Apollo 11. All three were veteran astronauts, one of the few missions that few with all-veteran crews. NASA needed veterans for this job. Because for the first time, men would land on another world.

Calendar: from 360 to 365

Amenemhet I

When did human beings adopt a 365-day year? Why does a circle have 360 degrees in it? What does one question have to do with the other? The answer has to do with the Global Flood, and how that Flood forced a change in the calendar, long after it happened.

Thad Cochran will lose anyway

Thad Cochran

Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) can’t win the general election. His campaign did many disgusting and possibly illegal things. But suppose he wins the legal battles to come? Suppose no judge or jury can or will convict him or his campaign? He still can’t win. Because he laid himself wide-open to a common Democratic attack. So CNAV repeats: he will wind up hoist by his own petard.

Thad Cochran: specious story

Thad Cochran

The campaign staff of Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss) vigorously deny buying votes with direct cash payments. But the key witness in this affair has four text messages that speak to such payments. Yesterday the chief spokesman for the Thad Cochran campaign tried to explain them away. And his explanations are worse than specious.

Thad Cochran: more evidence

Ballot box. The Electoral College compact relies on stuffing this.

Evidence continues to mount against Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.). Yesterday a witness came forward and charged that Thad Cochran paid voters to vote in the Republican runoff. If this charge holds, then Thad Cochran could lose the nomination by default. He might also face expulsion from the United States Senate. Either way, he would find himself hoist by his own petard.

Chris McDaniel still fights

Ballot box. The Electoral College compact relies on stuffing this.

Chris McDaniel, as everyone knows, “lost” the Mississippi Republican runoff election to Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.). The quote marks have a reason behind them.  In fact, Thad Cochran won with at least 35,000 votes, and maybe 38,000, that normally would have gone to a Democrat. And if enough of them did go to one Democrat or another in the primary earlier this month, those votes can’t count in the runoff. And with that, Chris McDaniel might win after all.

Global warming: scam or real?

A global warming conference took place in Copenhagen, and the conferees didn't think to get around as these people do.

De facto President Barack Obama keeps peddling the Global Warming narrative. Of course he would. Global Warming appeals to every “dream from his father” he ever had. If the globe is warming, he has the perfect excuse to do everything his father (whoever he was) dreamed of: taking America down a peg, and de-industrializing the world. So we should examine whether global warming is real – and why its proponents act like scam artists, with no idea what they’re talking about.

IRS scandal: par for the course

The latest hearings on the IRS scandal in the House of Representatives prove one thing above all. It is not that the Obama administration is the least transparent presidential administration in the history of the United States. We knew that already. Instead, it is that the American people lost their Republic the day three-fourths of the several States ratified the 16th Amendment, and Congress ordained and established the Internal Revenue Service.
