NASA Gets Voyager 1 Going Again

After almost four decades of dormancy, NASA has successfully ordered the Voyager 1 deep space probe to fire a set of thrusters that have been inactive for 37 years. The November 28 test was carried out by mission control at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, as part of an effort to keep the unmanned explorer functional for up to an additional three years as it speeds into interstellar space. read more

WND Exclusive – 3D-Gun Blueprints: A Crisis the left Just Can’t Waste

Those who feel it’s perfectly appropriate to pass legislation to make it “unlawful for any person to publish” the blueprints to a 3D-printed handgun-looking thing clearly do not understand the Constitution or the progressive nature of legal or legislative precedent.

Utah Sen. Mike Lee appears to be the only one on Capitol Hill who does. Or he is at least the only one with the courage to say so out loud. read more

Some of architecture’s biggest names are vying to lead a new mixed-use skyscraper development on a prominent site in Melbourne, Australia. From twisting greenery-covered towers to an “illuminated cloud,” the six designs for Southbank by Beulah show the firms letting their imaginations run wild. Furthermore, most of the designs show towers that would become Australia’s new tallest skyscraper if built. read more

Savings from Imprisoning Illegals will Pay for the Border Wall

Obviously the majority of people crossing the border aren’t criminals or even bad people. And by criminals, I mean committing a crime beyond crossing our border illegally.

But we hear stories all the time about criminals who commit violence of one sort or another. And the story is always the same. So and so illegal immigrant, attacked, raped, murdered someone. The umpteen times deported illegal was arrested for, fill in the blank. read more

Podcast – Jim Acosta – Spies not from Russia – DACA to Restart

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Before I begin speaking about Jim Acosta, I quickly discuss a new play about Anne Frank, where the Nazis are replaced with ICE agents. Yep – that’s right.

Don’t blame Jim Acosta for trying to shape the news. Blame Walter Cronkite, the once most trusted man in America.

Senator Diane Feinstein had a spy on her payroll for 20 years. Oh, you haven’t heard. Maybe because she’s a democrat and the spy was not Russian, but Chinese.

A lower court federal judge is demanding the restart of the DACA program. I discuss why he has no authority to make such a demand. read more

Democrats Embrace Identity Politics Roadmap for Victory in Arizona Gov Race

A longtime Democratic operative in Arizona says he is disappointed that David Garcia, the frontrunner in his party’s gubernatorial primary, has embraced a strategy of using his race to court Latino voters in the state.

Mario E. Diaz, who led Democrat Janet Napolitano’s successful campaign to be Arizona’s governor in 2002 and remains a prominent political strategist in the state, says he’s not aligned with any candidate for governor, but thinks Garcia’s aim of using his last name to win over Latino voters is both “insulting” and a “losing strategy.” He says the strategy has been overtly clear.

“This is not a dog whistle, this has been a dog howl,” Diaz said. “They are making the Latino community feel compelled to vote for somebody with the last name Garcia, which to me is an insult to the Latino voter.” read more
