NASA: Water Exists on Pluto

What a year for the Drake Equation! Today, NASA announced clear evidence of water on Pluto:

Just 10 days after confirming that liquid water has been found on Mars, the US space agency revealed a landmark discovery the amazing dwarf-planet has both ice and a ‘gorgeous’ blue sky.

A Nasa spokesman said: “New Horizons has detected numerous small, exposed regions of water ice on Pluto.

“The discovery was made from data collected by the Ralph spectral composition mapper on New Horizons.”

Frau Merkel

According British bookmaker William Hill, Angela Merkel — a woman who is singlehandedly exacerbating Germany’s cultural suicide — is the #1 favorite to win tomorrow’s Nobel Peace Prize, a once-great prize whose cache has been completely dissolved in recent decades by complete and total leftwing politicization by the electing Committee.

Meanwhile, Mother Angela is getting increasingly impatient (not very ‘peace’-like) with the Eastern bloc’s resistance to her dicates of pathological altruism. From Reuters:

German Chancellor Angela Merkel rounded on east European governments that refuse to take in refugees, accusing them of yielding to prejudice and ignoring their own history, the Politico website reported on Thursday…

The conservative [huh?! – Ed] German leader assailed the response of Hungarian, Czech, Slovak and some Baltic leaders to Europe’s refugee crisis, without naming them, saying they should know better having lived behind a fence themselves.

“We eastern Europeans — I’m counting myself as an eastern European — we have seen that isolation doesn’t help,” Merkel, who grew up in communist East Germany, was quoted as saying.

“The refugees won’t be stopped if we just build fences … and I’ve lived behind a fence for long enough.”…

What is it with the Left not being able to see the difference between fences designed to keep the civilians from leaving (East Germany) with fences designed to keep foreigners from invading (Hungary, Israel, etc.)?

Conservative Hungarian leader Victor Orban and centre-left Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico have attacked Merkel for throwing open Germany’s borders to Syrian refugees, saying she has triggered a surge of migrants that Europe cannot cope with and that threatens its “Christian values”.

The chancellor dismissed such arguments, saying: “It’s not acceptable that we have free movement of goods and of people, but that some countries say ‘this we can’t do, and that we can’t, and we can’t take in Syrians, because we’re not ready yet’.

“When someone says: ‘This is not my Europe, I won’t accept Muslims’ … I have to say, this is not negotiable,” Politico quoted her as saying. “Who are we to defend Christians around the world if we say we won’t accept a Muslim or a mosque in our country? That won’t do.”

With comments like that, Merkel is cementing her Nobel chances.

Under the Skin (2013)

Directed by Jonathan Glazer, who directed the great film Sexy Beast (2000), Under the Skin is a loose adaptation of Michel Faber’s 2000 novel of the same name. It follows an extraterrestrial who has assumed the form of a young woman (Scarlett Johansson) and her odd process of picking up men, bringing them back to her place, and their odd and undetermined fates.

There is very little dialogue in the film, and the camerawork and tone is very clinical and Kubrickian.

The film is something of an exploration of human sexuality, and all the forms it can take, before becoming (through an arc in Johansson’s character) an existential meditation on empathy. There is a moving sequence involving a lonely man with facial neurofibromatosis (i.e., elephant man’s disease), played by non-actor Adam Pearson, a man who actually has the condition.

Full of strange and poetic imagery, almost surreal, the film will have you thinking about it’s “meaning” for some time.

Highly recommended.

Camp of the Saints – Quote #16

CampOfSaints“I’ll hire Pierre Senconac.”

“Senconac! That reactionary? My dear friend, learn your business! You know that in advertising, today, it’s only the Left that sells. The Right is finished. The sponsors aren’t crazy, they all know it too. … So Senconac takes my place. What do you suppose he’ll say? I can hear him now! Save the race, save the country. Whatever the price, inhuman or not. Ship them back where they came from, back to their wastelands. Or sink them to the bottom. Or put them all in camps.”

NYT: 10/7/15

Here they are, fully anticipating assimilation-failure & public-assistance dependence by the ‘refugees’, but preemptively trying to frame the narrative as to why.

Happy Birthday, 1965 Immigration Act!

From Ann Coulter’s latest column (“The War on America Turns 50“), a brief retrospective on the most calamitous piece of legislation every passed in the United States:

So in 1965 – 50 years ago this week – Sen. Ted Kennedy passed an immigration law that has brought 59 million foreigners to our shores, who happened to vote 8-2 for the Democrats…

With the media cheering the end of America and businessmen determined to keep importing cheap labor, Democrats don’t even bother hiding what they’re doing.

Democratic political strategists Ruy Teixeira and John Judis have been gloating for 20 years about how post-1965 immigration would soon produce a country where Republicans could not win an election, anywhere. Then Democrats could do whatever they want. They called the new emerging majority “George McGovern’s Revenge.”…

The cultural left is overjoyed at the remaking of our society into one that is poorer, browner and less free.

5 Arrested in Connection with Sydney Cop’s Killing

From the large island that is Australia which used to be predominately white:

SYDNEY — Police arrested five people during a series of raids Wednesday in connection with the slaying of a civilian police worker, which officials have said they believe was linked to terrorism.

More than 200 officers swooped into homes in western Sydney and arrested the men, aged 16 to 24, as part of their investigation into the killing of Curtis Cheng, New South Wales police said. Cheng, a police finance worker, was shot by an Iranian teenager while leaving work in the western Sydney suburb of Parramatta last week. The killer, 15-year-old Farhad Jabar, was shot dead by police…

Australia has been struggling to cope with a string of homegrown terrorism crimes involving teenagers. In September 2014, an 18-year-old was shot dead by police after stabbing two counterterrorism police officers in Melbourne. In April, several teens were arrested on suspicion of plotting an Islamic State group-inspired terrorist attack at a Veterans’ Day ceremony that would have targeted police officers. And in May, police arrested a 17-year-old in Melbourne and accused him of plotting to detonate three homemade pipe bombs.

Camp of the Saints – Quote #15

CampOfSaints“But don’t you ever ask yourself what something like this would mean? The mixture of races, and cultures, and life-styles. The different levels of ability, different standards of education. Why, it would mean the end of France as we know it, the end of the French as a nation …”

“Yes, the rebirth of man.”
