Virgin Galactic’s VSS Unity suborbital spacecraft took to the skies over the Mojave desert in an unpowered flight test of the ship’s feather re-entry system. Piloted by Mark Stucky and Mike Masucci, the glide test is the fourth independent flight and the eighth total flight of the craft, which is designed to carry paying passengers on brief excursions to the edge of space. read more

Nothing Bring Races Closer Together than Segregation

by: the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version

In October 2016, a poll was conducted to gauge whether life today is better than it was in the 1950’s.

“Seventy-two percent of likely Trump voters think things have changed for the worse, while about 70 person of Clinton voters think things have changed for the better,” writes the HuffPo. Of Course, this is to be expected and anyone who follows this stuff would surely have predicted such a result.

Regarding the poll, liberal hack and columnist E.J. Dionne claims that, “We argue over whether we’re divided by race, class, gender or religion. What’s really scary about this poll is that we are divided by all of the following: class, race, gender and religion. We are deeply divided by these things.”

The HuffPo added that black Americans “are among the most likely to think that things have improved.” At the top of the list one would expect desegregation to be a major improvement and in fact, Democrats today complain that Republicans want to re-segregate blacks.

Reading, listening or watching virtually any mainstream media outlet, you would conclude that it is only the right who has interest in segregation.

However, facts can be truly inconvenient. And the facts dispel the myth that segregationists are whites of the right. Quite the opposite is true. read more

President’s Nightwatch Fleet

Wherever Air Force One is in the world, an E-4B Doomsday plane isn’t far away.

There are four E-4B ‘Nightwatch’ planes in the fleet that are made up of specially modified Boeing 747s that follow the President of the United States, particularly when he goes overseas.

The planes are outfitted as complete command centers for the president and his top officials including the Secretary of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the case of nuclear war or national emergency.

These aircraft have unique capabilities that cannot be duplicated by any other aircraft that the Air Force use.

College Campus Locked Down Over Racism

You may have heard that last Monday, Colgate University, in lovely New York State, went into lockdown over an active shooter incident.

Oh, you didn’t hear? Maybe that’s because was there was no active shooter on the campus of Colgate University. As defined by the federal government, an active shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area.

Sure, there was a call placed to campus security regarding a sighting. “Shortly after 8 p.m. Monday, two students reported seeing a shirtless black man running in the rain carrying his shirt and phone in one hand, and what appeared to be a weapon in his other hand. He was running into a campus building,” wrote Syracuse.com.

So it is night time – it’s pouring down rain, and a man is running. Whoever called in the report must have been Clint Barton – Hawkeye from Marvel’s Avengers.

Evidently the report was almost entirely accurate, so bully for the witnesses. There was but one thing the witnesses described incorrectly. The shirtless black man was armed with a GLUE gun and was rushing into the building to complete an art project that was due. read more

Podcast – Illegals Get Free College

Today I discuss two articles from the College Fix which explain how both DePaul and Emory Universities are developing programs to allow illegal aliens to attend the schools for free, or at least at drastically reduced levels. And the fun and fair part is that the rest of the student body at DePaul will have to pay additional fees to allow it. Isn’t that great.

So if you’re an American citizen, or even a legal international student you will be expected to pay extra – on top of the skyrocketing tuition you already pay. But that’s fair, because as I explain, it’s every illegal’s right to a free college education. read more

Congress Should Demand a Registry of Nationally Approved Words

A naughty word can get you in deep do-do these days. It may even get you banned for life. Even if there is no proof that you uttered it.

Oh, I’m not speaking of George Carlin’s famous 1972 skit, “The Seven words you can never say on Television.” Those, by today’s ever-devolving standards, are relative tame, and from I’ve heard, at least five have made it into many an Americans’ everyday vernacular.

No, I’m talking about really offensive words and phrases. Words like the other ‘F’ word – as in f*g, rhymes with gag. Or the ‘G’ word – as in g*y – rhymes with hay. I guess we’re allowed to say that. But beware to use it only to express something positive, for telling a classmate that their outfit looks “so gay” can and will get you suspended. Context is key.

And then there is the granddaddy of them all – the ‘N’ word. As we know, this is an especially caustic term. And I agree. It’s an awful word, which should never be used – by anyone. But yet it is – and quite often. It’s quite common to hear one black man use the ‘N’ word when speaking to another black man. So common has it become, that it seems almost requisite to use the term in rap and hip-hop music, videos and film. I guess the use of it is supposed to make the user feel like a bad mo-fo, and not a woefully ignorant moron.

But it’s just a word, like the millions of others we use. That may be, but don’t get caught being white and using the ‘N’ word. That one word, as well as other terms to describe blacks derogatorily can get you thrown out of a sports stadium and banned for life. read more

Humans in America Long Before First Thought

A controversial find could rewrite the history of humans in North America.

Archaeologists claim to have found evidence an unknown species of human was living on the continent as early as 130,000 years ago – 115,000 years earlier than previously thought.

Researchers discovered the butchered remains of an enormous mastodon in San Diego, with evidence of chips and fractures made by early humans – but they admit they don’t know if they were Homo sapiens, Homo erectus, Neanderthals, or something else.

The findings could dramatically revise the timeline for when humans first reached North America, although many researchers are sceptical of the find, claiming there are issues with the dating technique used and ‘many questions’ over the research.
