A NASA lunar orbiter has spotted the final resting place of a private Japanese moon lander that failed in its touchdown attempt last month.
The Hakuto-R lander, also carrying a small rover for the United Arab Emirates, made its landing attempt on April 25, aiming to set down in Atlas Crater. However, communications with the lander were lost moments before the expected landing. The ispace team behind the lander later confirmed that the lander did not safely touch down on the surface.
Now the site of the apparent crash has been discovered in images taken by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO).
The Israeli municipality in Jerusalem has announced plans to build 400 illegal settlement homes in the occupied town of Abu Dis, to the east of Occupied Jerusalem, The Times of Israel reported on Monday.
The plans include expanding the illegal Kidmat Zion settlement, where ten settler families currently live in three buildings purchased by the Ateret Cohanim settler organization.
The town is home to 15,000 Palestinian, the main campus of Al-Quds University and Palestine Authority government institutions.
In the building proposal submitted to the building committee, Ateret Cohanim cited “Palestinian ambitions” in Abu Dis to underscore the project’s importance.
Shots puts an amusing spin on the little-known history of eugenics. It traces the genocidal, anti-ethnic eugenics movement which resulted in the sterilization and elimination of millions. It exposes how the wealthiest families financed the evolution of eugenics into Nazi Germany, and pushed America into perpetual wars. These families further influenced the government's elimination of financial liability for vaccine manufacturers while simulating run-ups to the 2020 pandemic. By that year the wealthiest had bought and controlled the media, and censored medical experts that criticized government actions. Shots illuminates how the government censored effective therapeutics, financially incentivized hospitals to adopt misleading reporting practices and deadly treatments, doubled global deaths with lockdowns, bankrupted small businesses, and allowed the most unsafe vaccines in a century.
On Tuesday, the Texas legislature voted to pass HB 1070 and withdrew from Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC), the controversial voter roll maintenance system.
Texas will be the 9th state in the past year to leave the ERIC.
Rep. John Bucy, D-Austin proposed some changes to the bill, which would have to be approved by the Senate before the bill goes to Gov. Greg Abbott’s desk.
On Tuesday, GOP Representative Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) has taken another bold step by filing a privileged resolution to ‘censure, condemn, and fine’ serial liar Rep. Adam Schiff for his ‘egregious abuse of trust.’
The resolution, if successful, could result in a $16 million fine imposed on the controversial Democrat from California, which is half the cost of the Russia hoax investigation.
“This will be a privileged motion to censure & a $16 million dollar fine (half the cost of the Russia hoax investigation) meaning I WILL bring this vote to the house floor,” Luna wrote.
Lock her up!
The Manhattan professor who cursed at pro-life students and put a machete to a New York Post reporter’s neck has been fired.
The New York Post reported:
The manic Manhattan college professor who threatened a Post reporter with a machete has been fired, the school said Tuesday — as it emerged she is suing the NYPD for allegedly abusing her during the 2020 George Floyd protests.
Shellyne Rodriguez was sacked by Hunter College just hours after the adjunct professor was caught on camera holding the blade to the veteran reporter’s neck while threatening to “chop” him up outside her Bronx apartment.
“Hunter College strongly condemns the unacceptable actions of Shellyne Rodriguez and has taken immediate action,” school spokesman Vince Dimiceli told The Post.
Kari Lake held her first press conference since her Maricopa County Superior Court trial and the dismissal of her case challenging Maricopa County’s fraudulent mail-in ballot signature verification system earlier today.
Kari Lake and her team teased the announcement of “big news” late last night after Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter A. Thompson’s ruling.
Part of Lake’s big announcement dealt with the stolen midterm election, and she vowed to continue fighting her lawsuit all the way to the United States Supreme Court if necessary.
Kari Lake has been fighting against the stolen midterm election since November 8.
O’Keefe Media Group on Tuesday released undercover video of Democrat Senator John Fetterman’s special assistant saying his boss is okay with ‘overturning the Second Amendment.’
“Like, he’d [Fetterman] probably, he’d be okay with like, overturning the Second Amendment. Probably. I think he [Fetterman] would much rather prefer, like nobody has guns at all,” Fetterman’s Special Assistant Luke Borwegan said to an undercover journalist with OMG.
Luke Borwegan also claimed he only picks reporters who are puppets and “will say exactly what you f*cking want them to.”
Borwegan said Fetterman’s camp only gives stories about brain damaged Senator John Fetterman to certain reporters who will paint him in a good light.
A few weeks ago, I posted about a horrific car crash on the Rock Creek Parkway in Washington, D.C. in March that killed three immigrants in a Lyft car who were minding their own business when a Lexus going 100 mph hurtled into their side of the road.
The cops have now finally arrested the driver, Nakita Marie Walker, and charged her with second degree murder. No mugshot has been released. Washington, D.C. has had a policy since 1970 of not releasing mugshots due to fear of “prejudice.” From the single photo floating around online harvested from social media, it looks like a Usual Suspect, female version (not some well-connected D.C. insider as I had speculated like, say, the Ukrainian ambassador or a Biden cabinet secretary). But I won’t link to the picture yet because there remains a chance it could be a different, innocent person. [VDARE.com note: The image above is not from social media, but someone’s camera phone shot of NBC Washington’s coverage. The woman in the wheelchair is the accused.]
The US claims that the weapons sent to Ukraine are only used within the borders of the conflict zone, but it is increasingly clear that this equipment is being used by Ukrainian forces to carry out terrorist attacks in the undisputed Russian territory. Photos and videos shared on the internet show that US armored vehicles were used by pro-Kiev forces to attack Belgorod during recent terrorist hostilities. As expected, US officials are denying their involvement and suggesting the images are fake. Now, Washington needs to find a “justification” for the undeniable fact that its proxy regime is inappropriately and illegally using military aid provided by NATO.
The images are being published by Russian war correspondents who covered hostilities in Belgorod. It is possible to find among the equipment captured by the Russian forces several American-made weapons, including some armored vehicles such as M1151A1 Humvees and MaxxPro MRAP. The vehicles were mostly destroyed by Russian artillery or left behind by enemy soldiers as they tried to evade Russian fire.
Reacting to the case, the US authorities argued that there is not enough evidence to confirm the veracity of the photos and videos circulating on the networks. Speaking during a press conference, US State Department spokesman Matthew Miller emphatically expressed his skepticism about the veracity of the images, indicating that they could be some “fake” deliberately spread by the Russians to accuse the Americans. He made it clear that an official statement by Washington will only occur after the images are analyzed and there is absolute confidence on their accuracy.
An ex-con on lifetime parole for raping and killing a child has been charged with sexually assaulting an elderly woman in Queens. Charles Rowe, 56, allegedly committed the sexual assault just months after he avoided punishment for stealing a vehicle.
Rowe has been described as the "poster child for parole violation," with his story highlighting the implications of New York Governor Kathy Hochul's Less Is More Act, which makes it harder to send criminals back to jail for violating their parole.
Officials with the far-left, pro-abortion organization Planned Parenthood have announced that the national office will be firing dozens of employees and restructuring their operations, one year after a Supreme Court ruling forever changed abortion policy in the United States.
According to NPR, union officials speaking on behalf of Planned Parenthood staffers say that they have been told to prepare for layoffs of anywhere between 10 and 20 percent of the national organization, which amounts to roughly 80 people. In a statement by Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the organization claimed that it would simply “reimagine” its national operations, including an investment of $70 million in various affiliates.
Union representatives from Washington D.C., New York, and San Francisco, however, released a joint letter condemning the decision, claiming that the move would be “pushing out some of our movement’s brightest minds.”
The official Black Lives Matter organization lost millions of dollars in 2022, according to recently unearthed tax returns.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, the Black Lives Matter Global Foundation Network saw a deficit of $8.5 million in 2022, and also lost $10 million from its investment accounts. In addition, the group recorded a loss of $961,000 on a securities sale of $172,000, amounting to a roughly 85 percent loss as a result of the transaction.
Patrisse Cullors, one of the co-founders of the group, had previously criticized the idea of so-called charities being forced to disclose their finances, referring to the practice as “triggering” and “deeply unsafe.” Cullors herself has come under fire for allegedly using money raised by the organization to buy multiple mansions for herself and her partner, Janaya Khan, all across the country.
Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu has promised a "harsh response" to cross-border incursions from Ukraine.
His comments came after Moscow said it had defeated an attack in the Belgorod region.
However, regional governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said there had been a "large number" of drone attacks overnight.
Ukraine denies involvement in the raid - and two Russian paramilitary groups opposed to Russian President Vladimir Putin say they were behind it.
Attackers entered Russian territory from Ukraine on Monday.
Reporting to defence ministry officials on the incursion, Mr Shoigu said "more than 70 Ukrainian nationalists" had been killed and the rest pushed back into Ukraine.
On May 9, the Connecticut House of Representatives passed a bill that would effectively expand the definition of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation to include “discrimination” against so-called “minor-attracted persons.”
H.B. 6638, also known as “An Act Revising the State’s Antidiscrimination Statutes,” passed by a landslide margin of 132-17, with two members absent from the vote. A significant majority of the state’s 53 House Republicans voted in favor of the bill.
The state’s House Democratic caucus described the bill as seeking to “modernize and improve consistency in” the state’s “discrimination statutes.” The Connecticut American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which supports the bill, used similar language, stating that “it modernizes the existing definition of sexual orientation, moving away from thirty-year-old outdated and offensive terminology.”
Cologne has been named the world’s most sexually liberated city, with the city’s panoply of gay bars and LGBT events bumping it to the top of a list compiled by a German magazine.
“Cologne is world famous for its carnival and cathedral,” German-based Lust Magazine wrote. “But for many residents of this cosmopolitan, tolerant city, sex is the new religion.”
According to the report, Cologne’s 23 annual LGBT events, four gay pride festivals, 17 gay bars, and 19 sex shops shot it to the top of the list, with West Hollywood, California in second, and Amsterdam, Madrid, and Berlin completing the top five.
