Fabricating A Presidential Family Part I

In order to create a beloved leader whom the masses can be charismatically seduced by as their freedoms evaporate under unfair and ideological rule, a cult of personality must be created. Every Communist and fascist regime in history has used the media, falsehoods about the leader’s attributes, and even the alteration of the person’s past in order that a perfect illusion of personal circumstance and leadership capability is instilled in […]

Who’s Better with Your Money, You or Washington?

Presidential candidate for the Democrat Party Bernie Sanders said that a tax code of 90 percent is not too high. Now, Sanders is an admitted socialist, so it’s no wonder he thinks the Government should take the vast majority of your paycheck from you and dole it out as it sees fit. Just for clarity, that’s leaving you a meager 10 percent of the money you worked for. At the […]

Sen. Casey: Foley Beheading ‘Just a Preview’

Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), the Co-Chair of the Weapons of Mass Destruction Terrorism Caucus argued that the beheading of American journalist James Foley was “just a preview” of what ISIS is capable of. “It’s very important to push back aggressively, and with a really determined focus, against ISIS. because they’re not just having great success on the ground in Iraq, but the beheading of Mr. Foley is one indication, and I’m afraid, just a preview, of what they would do to other Americans, and others around the world if they’re not aggressively confronted” he said on Tuesday’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” on MSNBC.

Casey also argued, “I think the steps that the president has taken today have been very prudent, making sure when we have an interest, in this case, pushing back on ISIS and their brutal efforts to not only take over Iraq, but also to do everything they can to have kind of one country between Iraq and Syria. I think the air strikes were appropriate, and I think the intel. and the targeting has been appropriate.”

He also warned of the threat of American citizens joining ISIS, stating “we have to pay attention, not just to what happens in Syria and Iraq, but have to pay attention to efforts here in the United States that lead to radicalization, and then an individual goes across the world and engages in terrorist acts around the world, sometimes, against Americans.”

Rosetta probe successfully orbits comet

ESA’s Rosetta probe has made history as the first to orbit a comet, and is set to reach another landmark in space travel if it can successfully land on comet 67P. The Rosetta mission hopes to find information on how comets are affected by the sun, and maybe even to discover if it is possible that life on earth could have been created by a comet hitting the earth.

While the Rosetta mission has been active for over a decade, interest in space travel is receiving more and more press, and international competition in space has spawned a new iteration of the space race, with China’s lunar landing, and Russia’s planned expedition to the moon in 2030. However, this time the players aren’t limited to government ventures, but also venture capitalists.

Billionaires Richard Branson and Elon Musk both have separate space ventures in Virgin Galactic and SpaceX, respectively, and according to results from 1World 84% think private companies are better suited than governments to improve space travel.

Despite the renewed interest in space travel, people are having serious doubts about the feasibility of Mars as a potential Earth colony. Colonizing Mars has long been a staple of science fiction books and movies, and NASA has even developed a saucer-shaped craft to attempt to land on the Red Planet.

Although we have been making serious developments into the final frontier 59% don’t think Mars will be successfully colonized, and 53% would consider travelling to Mars despite the 500 day flight (that’s a lot of in-flight movies). Check out the world map below to see where people are most interested in taking a trip to Mars.
