Watch as NYPD officers turn their backs to Mayor Bill De Blasio as he heads to a press conference following the murder of two NYPD officers yesterday:

And apparently that wasn't all that faced the mayor:

Ascension goes straight down

I managed to catch the premiere of SyFy's latest offering, Ascension, on Monday evening.

The premise: Back in the early 1960s, the US secretly built and launched an Orion starship -- that's right, starship -- to Proxima Centauri. Those in power were worried about the heating up of the Cold War, and as such wanted a segment of humanity, however small, to survive in case all-out nuclear war came about.

We begin about half-way into the Ascension's 100-year journey. And there's been the first murder on-board since launch, fifty-one years ago.

It is true that we actually had the technology to build and use Orion back in the early 60s. The first question upon glimpsing the interior of Ascension is ... really?

THE BAD:

The ship looks too clean and neat. Granted, the producers do a fairly admirable job using technology from the early 60s (television screens, buttons, gauges, print-outs, etc.) but then again other aspects of the ship's tech look way ahead of their time.

In a recent Entertainment Weekly review of the first episode, a critic wrote that the sociological/cultural aspects of the pre-Civil Rights 60s were still intact. I doubt we were watching the same episode, frankly. First, one of the main characters is a black male (he's the ship's XO) whose main job in the episode is tracing down what happened the night of the murder. It seems to me there would be quite a bit more ... resentment among the mainly white passengers when a "presumptuous" black man demands answers from them. Such wasn't evident at all. In addition, another fairly prominent character was the ship's librarian, a black woman. Further, the ship's doctor is a woman, and the EW writer says that sexism was very prevalent on the ship. The doctor alone isn't proof against that; I just didn't see anything to indicate it was much worse than it is today. So, for an early-60s era cultural snapshot, this is pretty darn progressive. Of course, being out in space for a half century could have certainly brought about their own sense of cultural and racial enlightenment; however, I'm just taking issue with the EW writer's seeming lack of knowledge.

How would the US pull such a project off? A trillion dollars ... back in 1963? How much would that equate to in current dollars? It's huge! And how would our competing powers -- the USSR, mainly -- miss such a launch? An Orion ship of this size is massive, and is powered by continuous nuclear explosions. Even given 1960s technology, it's highly unlikely the Russians would have missed that.

How is gravity seemingly so normal onboard the ship? There's no evidence of anything rotating (one of the feasible means of generating "artificial" gravity) so the only imaginable way to produce the close-to-normal gravity evident on the ship is by continuous acceleration. But bumping up to a continuous one gee takes quite a bit of time, and even so -- a continuous one gee acceleration would enable a shop to travel 10 light-years in 100 years' time; Proxima Centauri is only four light-years away. Thus, we can assume that Ascension is not accelerating at one gee. So ... how in the hell is everyone moving around the ship so normally?

Why do we need the gratuitous sex? I'm not saying people wouldn't be engaged in this sort of stuff, but why does a Syfy show like this need to have fairly graphic sex and bare butt shots?

THE GOOD:

The premise. It's terrific. If they made it much more realistic then I'd probably be on board. Of course, none of this addresses the big "shock" at the end of the premiere which, if you want the spoiler, check out the EW link above.

Which makes this even more silly ...

Would aliens be asking this?

Ace mocks astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson for this tweet:


Tyson has been giggled at on several occasions, the latest of which (before the tweet above) was his fabrication of a George W. Bush quote that made it appear he (Bush) was some sort of Islamophobic bigot.

But history isn't Tyson's forte, science is. Which brings us back to the tweet and our title: Would aliens be asking that?

Apparently, as Glenn Reynolds points out, Tyson is ignorant of the literature on the topic.
It stands to reason that, if aliens are advanced enough to either observe us or visit us, they will have followed a pretty similar evolution as human beings. That is, it is highly likely they had their own struggles with land issues, politics, religion, and/or biological differences.

Tyson's "Cosmos" predecessor, Carl Sagan, believed that advanced aliens wouldn't be a threat to us because, after all, what could we do to them? With their technology they'd be able to annihilate us with a snap of their fingers (or appendages).

Sagan also believed that any civilization advanced enough to acquire the means for interstellar travel is probably socially advanced enough as to have grown beyond the concepts of war and conflict.

However, many contemporary scientific minds believe the opposite -- that if (advanced) aliens have followed an evolutionary pattern similar to ours, they are "top predators," and as such have the same needs -- and desires -- as us (territory, resources, power, etc.)

I happen to think that even the insanely brilliant Stephen Hawking is off-base when he warns that aliens may want Earth for its "resources." Why would aliens capable of interstellar travel want to mine Earth for its riches when they obviously have the means to mine mineral-rich and water-rich objects like asteroids and comets?
The truth is, we have no idea about alien life and what its motivations may be. However, let's take this time to examine some "Earth invasion" scenarios from popular culture and rate 'em based on a thing called "plausibility."

Independence Day
Scenario: Aliens advance on Earth to wipe out humans and mine our resources.
Plausibility Factor: Low

They'd been watching us for at least 50 years and decide to make their move in 1996. Unfortunately for them, our computer revolution in the interim allowed Jeff Goldblum to become a computer virus expert. At any rate, as revealed in the scene where the captured alien mind-zaps the president, the aliens are "like locusts" and plan to strip Earth of all resources. But this makes little sense as I said above.

V
Scenario: Aliens come to Earth to steal our water. And eat humans.
Plausibility Factor: Medium

Much like the plot in Independence Day, the aliens in V want stuff from us -- in this case, water. Um, hey idiot aliens? Why not snag a comet or an ice asteroid, duh!!! But if they consider humans a delicacy, that makes a compelling reason to visit us. Except that, as even the series plays upon, a race as advanced as the V reptiles might have a moral issue with munching on another intelligent species.

War of the Worlds
Scenario: Aliens blast Earth with tripods to prepare for colonization.
Plausibility Factor: Medium

Wanting a new habitable planet for your civilization certainly makes a hell of a lot of sense -- much more than wanting such a planet for its resources, especially if its already been highly drained of such by the intelligent species already living on it! And so it is with the "Martians" (in quotes because, although Wells didn't know that Mars was a desolate place, the late 20th century did and updated the story accordingly). However, an alien race advanced enough to cross space and humble an advanced native populace can't devise a means of an effective immunity?

The Arrival
Scenario: Aliens have been slowly terraforming (or is that "alienaforming?") Earth to suit their purposes for eventual habitation.
Plausibility Factor: High

A very smart film starring Charlie Sheen and Ron Silver, an astronomer (Sheen) accidentally discovers that aliens are slowly terraforming Earth to suit themselves -- which, in this case, means accelerating global warming. The aliens are also keen to Earth politics, as their "warming stations" are located in countries with little-to-no environmental regulations. (Sheen finds one in Mexico.)

Battlefield: Earth
Scenario: Ultra-capitalist aliens conquer Earth 1,000 years ago to plunder its resources.
Plausibility Factor: Low

Greedy aliens from the planet Psychlos decimated Earth's civilization a millennium ago, and are still mining the planet for all it's worth in the year 3,000. In particular, the Psychlos like valuable metals like gold. Except that, like other metals and water, these resources are abundant in space. As much as the Psychlos despise humans, then why bother crushing such a people when you can get what you need for a lot cheaper? You're capitalists, after all! And how do you develop high technology in a flammable atmosphere??

They Live
Scenario: Like the Psychlos from Battlefield: Earth, these aliens are "free enterprisers" using Earth as "their Third World."
Plausibility Factor: Medium

Greedy aliens have been projecting a field which not only disguises them, but also uses clandestine subliminal messages to "sooth" the human populace. But some scientists have devised a way to see them, and Roddy Piper plans to do something about it! But again we see aliens plundering resources on Earth, but at least it has the twist that their making us get them for 'em. Still, 'ya'd think they wouldn't rely on single land-based antennae to project that beam so that average joes like Piper can destroy 'em.

So the mainstream media will ignore this, too, and continue to push 'GOP/Bush torture'

... the "torture" of which most Americans could give a sh** about since 1) the "torture" involved some "harsh" interrogation tactics against barely-human radical Islamist fundies who only want to off Westerners, 2) happened around a decade ago, 3) sorta makes killing terrorists via drone -- along with "collateral" women and children -- seem tame in comparison, and 4) serves to distract from things like Jonathan Gruber continuing to lie (on Capitol Hill this time), and this:

Sadly, the 18 month investigation into the IRS targeting of conservative groups isn’t over, and it may be worse than anyone thought. A federal judge has broken loose more emails that the DOJ had surely hoped would never surface. The picture it reveals isn’t pretty. The documents prove that Lois Lerner met with DOJ’s Election Crimes Division a month before the 2010 elections.

It has to be embarrassing to the DOJ, which may not be the most impartial one to be investigating the IRS. In fact, the DOJ withheld over 800 pages of Lerner documents citing “taxpayer privacy” and “deliberative privilege.” Yet these internal DOJ documents show Ms. Lerner was talking to DOJ officials about prosecuting tax-exempt entities (yes, criminally!) two years before the IRS conceded there was inappropriate targeting.

Remember, Richard Nixon would have been impeached for much less than this. Look at Article 2, part 1 of his never-used impeachment:

1. He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavoured to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposed not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.

Not to mention, the other parts seem pretty fitting, too.

Ponder. Marvel. Deliberate.

Ah, the Local Gaggle of Moonbat Bloggers. They couldn't WAIT for this day. Something -- anything -- to get the subject of the biggest joke of a chief exec ever off the front pages ... even for just a bit.

MARVEL at their hilarious pomposity that "Republicans are for torture," knowing all the while that rendition began under Bill Clinton, and that President Lemon has droned the living f*** out of terrorists -- including known American citizens -- which has had the side effect of offing quite a few women and kiddies.

PONDER how waterboarding and preventing regular sleep of heinous terrorists is somehow "worse" than killing same without the coveted "rights" and "due process" we heard from "progressives" throughout the 2000s.

PUZZLE over why this had to be made public today, when Jonathan Gruber was testifying on the Hill about ObumbleCare and all the associated the lies about that train wreck. Not to mention that barbarians like al Qaeda and ISIS will use this for propaganda gold.

MULL over how Democrats, including the White House, can (laughably) claim some "moral high ground" by releasing this ... saying stuff like "We can do better," while the IRS has systematically targeted right-leaning groups and individuals for years now (something Richard Nixon never did), how we were lied to repeatedly about ObumbleCare which affects one-sixth of our economy, and ....

REALIZE, however, that next month is the beginning of the END for the inept charlatans who've been running our government.

Surprise

Hey, does anyone think that tomorrow's release of that Senate report on CIA "torture" is anything but coincidental? Not to mention one big middle finger by the outgoing Democrat Senate to George W. Bush?

"There are some indications that the release of the report could lead to a greater risk that is posed to U.S. facilities and individuals all around the world," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Monday. "So the administration has taken the prudent steps to ensure that the proper security precautions are in place at U.S. facilities around the globe."

Hey idiots -- then don't release it. If you're so f***ing concerned, then the solution is quite simple.

If you're actually willing to put more American lives in danger because a few hardcore, barbaric Neanderthals who are only dedicated to offing as many Westerners as possible were waterboarded for vital intel, yet you continually refuse to release vital emails about how the country's own quasi-secret police targeted conservative-leaning groups for audits and squelched their free speech rights ... well, that shows you plenty of how your modern Democrat Party -- and current chief exec -- operate.

"The president believes that, on principle, it's important to release that report, so that people around the world and people here at home understand exactly what transpired," Earnest said. He added that "something like this should never happen again."

Spare me. See my paragraph above. The president has no principles, other than to screw over anyone who doesn't agree with him.

And it doesn't matter one f***ing iota if American lives may be put in danger as a result.

Unfortunately, we don't get 'em -- nor just them -- from you

Comicbook scribe Gail Simone:


Unfortunately, Gail, in the last decade (give or take a few years), readers haven't gotten many good comicbook stories.

And you state they "just" want good stories. Then why do you and so many of your ilk rant and rave about (leftist) politics on social media? It's bad enough that in these rants your knowledge of actual history and facts is often wanting, but you also demean and demonize those with different views and opinions.

Yes -- you are correct, Gail. Comicbook readers just want good stories. I guess acknowledgement of that is the first step in your "recovery," so to speak.

Perfect: Dear media -- this is why everybody hates you

And, I might add, why Fox News is perpetually the ratings winner by a landslide.

Just check out how many times the Washington Post covered Elizabeth Lauten's personal Facebook posts criticizing the Obama daughters:

  • Aide to Tennessee congressman knocks Obama kids
  • The long and fraught history of judging the president’s kids
  • White House: First daughters should be off-limits
  • Indigestion over the Obama girls: Why a GOP staffer’s below-the-belt jabs were particularly wrong.
  • GOP aide’s online dig at Obama daughters creates backlash: A GOP staffer criticized the demeanor of Sasha and Malia Obama at the turkey pardoning.
  • Criticizing first kids? Still not a good idea. The ex-GOP aide who called out the president’s kids violated the unspoken staffer code.
  • GOP aide resigns over criticism of Obama daughters
  • When GOP staffer put Obama children ‘at a bar,’ it continued American tradition of trashing black females’ morality: Views like hers historically excused the abuse and disregard of human beings judged not worthy of consideration by people who also prayed.
  • Hill staffer quits after comments about first daughters: Those on both sides of the political aisle believed Elizabeth Lauten broke a cardinal rule when she criticized the Obama girls in a Facebook post.
  • Nothing classy about Elizabeth Lauten’s criticism of the Obama girls
  • Hill staffer Elizabeth Lauten resigns after remarks about Obama daughters

Links to all the articles are at the link above.

Lauten is -- re: was -- communications director for a Tennessee representative. That's right -- the C.D. for one representative out of the 435 that inhabit Capitol Hill. Who made, again, the supposed disparaging comments on her personal Facebook page.

Now, certainly, the rep. has every right to fire her for what she did. That's beside the point. Look at how many times the nation's capital's newspaper of note covered this "story."

And the WaPo certainly wasn't the only one.

If I didn't know better, I'd say Woodward and Bernstein only went after Nixon because he was a Republican.

2) anything about Naboo, and
3) anything about the Trade Federation, General Grievous and other essentially useless ancillary entities

Jurassic World coming next summer

Via Ace: Chalk it up as yet another sequel we seriously don't need:

Guardians of the Galaxy's Chris Pratt appears to play the role Jeff Goldblum did in the originals, apparently. No, not the exact same guy, just a similar role. Even the lines he utters appear the same.

Which sorta makes sense, for, if anyone is ridiculously stupid enough to restart Jurassic Park after what happened not once, not twice, but three times (yes, there was a Jurassic Park III), then they definitely need a cliché-spouting cynic in their midst.

Moonbat comic creators' reaction to Ferguson

It will come as no surprise, but the usual suspects, of course, feel the need to "chime in" because, y'know, they're so "smart" and "up on things."

It's been a while since we've checked in on Gail Simone; but she sure didn't let us down:


And then there was this lovely retweet from her:


Indeed?

The sad thing about all this is that "progressives" routinely claim to be those who believe in science -- y'know, deriding global warming climate change skeptics as lunatics, laughing at disbelievers of evolution (rightly, of course), and right-wing historians who only want to emphasize the good America has done and ignore its sordid side (also rightly).

Yet, people like Simone will ignore all the evidence that grand jury saw, re-saw, heard, re-heard, debated, and re-debated ... all the science. Like, if the person whose tweet Simone retweeted really is worried about her son's life, she shouldn't worry about folks like Darren Wilson, but about residing in a predominately black inner-city community. The chances of being a victim of violence with the latter are magnitudes greater.

Remember, too: this grand jury included three African-Americans. Will these three now be referred to as "Uncle Toms?"

Maybe Simone is doing all this so that she can maintain her "progressive" cred. Maybe she feels guilty because she lives in a state with a black population of around two percent.

Either way, it's ridiculous and irresponsible.

Here are a few examples of some of our other "pals":


A Mark Waid retweet:


A Dan Slott retweet:


Remember, these are the folks that believe in SCIENCE! Except when it conflicts with THEIR political dogma.

And hilariously, many of these folks are criticizing the prosecutor (who's a progressive Democrat, by the way) for lambasting social media's role in the whole Mike Brown saga ... all while posting frivolous social media commentary like "I worked in a prosecutor's office once and I can tell you this is a travesty!"

This just in: Why there can never be 'honest' conversations about race

Because when someone -- a white person, that is -- offers some blunt honesty, it's merely “the defensive mechanism of white supremacy at work."

That, according to the master of pseudo psycho-socio babble, Michael Eric Dyson:

So, so much for "honesty."

UPDATE: Ian Tuttle on NRO:

The Left has a storied history of transforming legitimate disagreement into mental illness. Utilizing his influence as director of the Institute of Psychiatry of the USSR Academy of Medical Sciences, Soviet psychiatrist Andrei Snezhnevsky propagated throughout the Soviet Union and its satellites the notion of “sluggish schizophrenia,” a condition from which, conveniently, thousands of Soviet dissidents happened to suffer. Opposing official government policy, pessimism, religious practice — all were symptoms of mental instability, the solution for which was incarceration in a mental hospital.

The People’s Republic of China continues the practice. In September, watchdog group Chinese Human Rights Defenders reported that a blogger critical of the government had been seized in his home and committed. Another activist apparently has been in psychiatric detention since 2007.

The American Left has not set up hospitals, but one can see less extreme manifestations of the same impulse all about. Consider “sensitivity training.”

And certainly this impulse was on display in the quarrels above. How is one to debate whether Rudy Giuliani says what he does merely because he is a white supremacist? “But I am not a white supremacist!” he might object — which is, of course, what all white supremacists say! And when Blow claims that the president’s opponents are desperately clinging to power, how is such an opponent to respond? After all, doctor knows best.

To psychologize the question at issue in a debate is to remove it from the realm of debate altogether.

Reaping what you sow

I can’t wait for President Scott Walker to unilaterally order all federal agencies to stop withholding union dues and refuse to enforce mandatory fees because Congress hasn’t acted on PEU reform quickly enough or to his satisfaction. Unions can then thank Obama for setting the precedent of presidential authority on Walker’s behalf

Indeed. Candidate Obama wanted a weak executive. President Obama realizes politics is hard and executive orders are easy.

They will, of course, rise and condemn Walker or any Republican without a trace of irony.

Let's check in with the moonbat comics creators!

Our 'ol pal Ron Marz just never can seem to grasp what's known as "irony":


So much to say to that ... but it's just way too easy.

Next, "brave" Marz goes after a dead guy:


Yeah, not lost on me: How the saving of a "progressive" pacifist prior to World War II ended up allowing the Nazis to win the conflict -- and eventually rule the planet ... and galaxy.

Except that ... actress Joan Collins, who played pacifist Edith Keeler, is actually right-leaning in her politics.

Sort of the reverse situation of Chuck Heston's Taylor in Planet of the Apes, who was a pretty liberal guy:

"Time bends. Space is...boundless. It squashes a man's ego. I feel lonely. That's about it. Tell me, though, does man, that marvel of the universe, that glorious paradox who sent me to the stars, still make war against his brother...keep his neighbor's children starving?"

"I'm a seeker, too. But my dreams aren't like yours. I can't help thinking that somewhere in the universe there has to be something better than man. Has to be."

"Imagine me needing someone. Back on Earth I never did. Oh, there were women. Lots of women. Lots of love-making but no love. You see, that was the kind of world we'd made. So I left, because there was no one to hold me there."

So, essentially, what we have is Ron Marz making not much sense as usual -- only trying to score more "progressive" cred, and further alienate any right-leaning audience he may have left.
