#Earth Day, the holiday founded by Ira Einhorn, most famous for having murdered his girlfriend and then composting her body in the approved environmentalist fashion, has come and gone unnoticed by most people. The day is usually accompanied by virtue-signaling pronouncements about how we should preserve the Earth, illustrated by photos taken of our home planet by NASA. All of this save the Earth stuff is well and good, but the question arises as to 'how?' It turns out, if a recent Daily Caller article is accurate, saving our planet consists of doing things that the environmentalists don’t want you to do.

Clearly he should take to heart this: Commentary: Romney should open his mind to space exploration
Now that Jim Bridenstine [VIDEO] has been confirmed as #NASA administrator it is time to revisit one of the accusations that have been levied against him, that he is a “#Climate Denier.” The jibe is based on a statement that Bridenstine made on the floor of the House that cast doubt that climate change is an overwhelming problem that has to be addressed by upending the world economy. The matter came up during the final debate in the Senate.

At first glance, the lawsuit filed by the DNC against the Trump for President Campaign, the #Russian government, and Wikileaks alleging that they conspired to influence the 2016 election and hand the presidency to Donald Trump seems insane. However, there is a method to the madness of litigating a #Conspiracy Theory. First, the suit forces the named defendants to respond. Second, it keeps the story of Russian collusion alive even as the very investigations continue to find no evidence.

Former First Lady #Barbara Bush was so universally beloved that President Trump [VIDEO]. Barack Obama, Sen. Ted Cruz, and Nancy Pelosi all united in expressing grief and condolences at her passing. She was the very personification of a grandmother, tart-tongued at times, but still brimming with compassion. However, as an English professor at Fresno State named #Randa Jarrar proved, there is always a jerk ready to grab 15 minutes of infamy with the help of social media.

With the news that the confirmation of Rep. #Jim Bridenstine, R-Oklahoma as #NASA administrator is imminent, the Left has gone into panic mode. RL Miller, the chair of the California Democratic Environmental Caucus, has demanded a last-minute push to head off the conservative congressman’s confirmation. Miller accuses Bridenstine of being a “bigot” for his past opposition to same-sex marriage, similar to the stance once taken by President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

#David Hogg, the high school student, turned anti-gun rights advocate, and his handlers at Media Matters are in the process of learning the lesson that if you strike at the queen, make sure you kill her, to paraphrase Emerson. The advertiser boycott aimed at driving #Laura Ingraham from the airwaves has cost the #Fox News commentator nearly 30 advertisers. However, the campaign has swelled her audience by 20 percent. The development suggests that the boycott is doomed to failure and that Hogg and his adult enablers have been humiliated.

The legend has it that when Stanley Kubrick [VIDEO] hired R. #Lee Ermey, an 11-year Marine Corps veteran [VIDEO], to be a technical adviser on his Vietnam War epic, “Full Metal Jacket,” he was so impressed by a demonstration of what a drill instructor does to recruits that he hired him to play a character in the movie. Ermey got a Golden Globe nomination for his portrayal as a sadistic Vietnam War era DI who so thoroughly turns a hapless, overweight recruit into a killing machine that he found himself as the private’s first victim. Thus, Ermey lucked into his second career, playing a series of military and law enforcement authority figures in numerous movies and TV shows as well as himself on a number of reality shows.

Art Bell was one of those strange one person phenomena that had to be heard to be believed. He started his broadcast career as a conventional political talker before veering into conspiracy theories, sort of like Alex Jones only less hysterical. By the mid-1990s he settled into his niche of discussing the paranormal and related topics with an eclectic number of guests. Bell’s style was not to necessarily agree or disagree with what the guest was saying but to let the person talk and, in essence, be the entertainment. Art Bell became the most listened to #Late Night Radio host as a result, controlling the airways in his “#Coast To Coast” show.

Following through on threats issued in the wake of a Syrian gas attack on a civilian target, President #Donald Trump ordered a strike on three chemical warfare targets in Syria, including a “science research center” and storage facilities. The raid was carried out by naval and air units of the #United States, Great Britain, and France. By all accounts the attacks were successful, and the targets were destroyed. Despite boasting to the contrary, Syrian air defenses were impotent against the strike. Russian air defenses, despite a promise to shoot down missiles and aircraft, did not engage.

The end of the #Google Lunar Xprize was not the end of the private race to the moon. Besides the five former participants, Moon Express, Team Indus [VIDEO], Team Hakuto, SpaceIl, and Synergy Moon, at least two other teams not in the competition, Astrobotic and Part-Time Scientists, are still planning private moon shots. Indeed, an effort is underway to revive the competition, to be called merely the Lunar XPrize. The new race to the moon will not include a cash prize but is looking for a sponsor.
