China hunting in America...
The suspects, whose mission was allegedly sanctioned by the Peoples Republic of China, worked for more than three years as part of a campaign known as "Operation Fox Hunt" to coerce Chinese nationals living in the United States to return to China where they were wanted for various government offenses, said John Demers, chief of the Justice Department's National Security Division.
Five of the suspects, including a New Jersey private investigator who allegedly assisted with surveillance, were arrested earlier Wednesday and charged as illegal agents of the PRC. The three others are believed to be living in China.
"The Chinese government's brazen attempts to surveil, threaten and harass our own citizens and lawful permanent residents while on American soil are part of China's diverse campaign of theft and malign influence in our country and around the world," FBI Director Christopher Wray said.

Fwd: Political Terror
7 Open Leftist Threats That Political Terror Is Coming To America Whether Trump Wins Or Not
Trump Resistance Plans 'Mass Mobilization' After Election To Shut Down The Country If Biden Doesn't Win
1. A Think Tank Guy Should Meet…A Firing Squad
First, in a chilling Twitter incident, agitator Nils Gilman called for the execution of journalist and former Trump adviser Michael Anton. Gilman publicly stated, "Michael Anton is the Robert Brasillach of our times and deserves the same fate." Brasillach was a Nazi collaborator in France whose fate was execution by firing squad. Neither Gilman nor Twitter took down the tweet, despite many protests, including a public letter of grave concern from the Claremont Institute, where Anton is a senior fellow.
Gilman is head of the George Soros-funded Berggruen Institute and a co-founder of the "Transition Integrity Project," which war-gamed the ouster of Trump from office regardless of whether he wins re-election. Anton's crime, in Gilman's mind, was publishing an article about Gilman's project in the American Mind, titled "The Coming Coup."
Why is Gilman's Sept. 21 death threat against Anton still up on Twitter an entire month later? Will it remain up after the election?
2. Shoot This CEO For Not being Woke Enough
Second, former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo objected to the company Coinbase's decision to ease up on forcing employees to engage in social justice agendas such as critical race theory. Costolo accused Coinbase's CEO Brian Armstrong of being among the "me-first capitalists" who would be the first lined up and "shot in the revolution."
Costolo, who has 1.5 million Twitter followers, added that he would "happily provide video commentary" of the executions. The tweet has disappeared, although there is no mention of it being deleted. One response comes with a screenshot though:
3. If Trump Loses, His Supporters Remain 'An Existential Threat'
Third, if the Democrats take over the reins of power — in an election, a coup, or a bought-and-paid-for "color revolution" — what happens to those who have supported Trump?
Take a look at this Aug. 1 Salon article, which argues that even if Biden wins, Trumpism "will survive the election and continue to be an existential threat." Author Paul Rosenberg examines the arguments in writings by John Feffer and other anti-Trump pundits who believe there is a lot of work to be done to force the "de-trumpification" of America. They compare Trump supporters to Nazis or the Baathists of Saddam Hussein's Iraq and describe America under Trump as a "pathocracy."
Rosenberg cites Feffer, who says the solution is "to drain the swamp Trump created, bring criminal charges against the former president and his key followers, and launch a serious campaign to change the hearts and minds of Americans who have been drawn to this president's agenda." He even brings up the Nuremberg trials as instructive, trials that resulted in death sentences for 37 Nazis.
That isn't good enough, however, according to Feffer. It's important to go after "low-level participants" to root out Trumpism. It recommends enforcing this changing of "hearts and minds" so that there is "an attitudinal shift that could lead to lasting transformation." This is not a far cry from re-education camps and coercive thought reform.
The formula appears to be threefold and on a large scale, "the scale on which we need to be thinking," according to the Salon article. First, divide the so-called redeemable Trump supporters from those intent on keeping America great. Second, send those who are problematic to virtual education camps. Third, stomp out all the ideas the power elites don't like.
In the same vein, former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, who has 1 million Twitter followers, recommended that a "Truth and Reconciliation Commission" be established to rid the nation of Trumpism.
4. Prosecute Everyone Who Supported Trump
Fourth, former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann recently ranted that everyone associated with Trump, including his enablers and supporters, must be "prosecuted and convicted and removed from our society." To many, Olbermann might seem to be a has-been, but he has nearly 1 million Twitter followers. He represents the viewpoint of many in the propaganda media that control more than 90 percent of the megaphones. Olbermann referred to Trump supporters as "maggots" who needed to be chased from the stage.
5. Trump Supporters 'Must Be Eradicated From Society'
Fifth, on Aug. 4, 2019, a supposed religious scholar and CNN contributor Reza Aslan announced on Twitter — a tweet still up as of Oct. 22 — that all Trump supporters "must be eradicated from society" along with Trump, and that there is "no longer any room for nuance." Aslan has nearly 300,000 followers.
His extremely defamatory and threatening tweet reads verbatim: "The President is a white nationalist terror leader. His supporters — ALL OF THEM — are by definition white nationalist terror supporters. The MAGA hat is a KKK hood. And his evil, racist scourge must be eradicated from society."
7. Plots to Dox Political Opponents
Seventh, the left is now using doxing tools to invite widespread targeting of Trump voters. A recently unveiled database called "The Media Manipulation Casebook" is described as a means of gathering personal information that exposes anonymous Trump supporters. NBC News reporter Brandy Zadrozny appears to use it to find "addresses, property records … even Amazon wish lists" that can be a "goldmine for learning about what a person reads, buys, and wants."
At the same time, open-source materials, such as donations tracked by the Federal Election Commission, are being used to invite the targeting of Trump donors, either by name or address on a hostile site. The information can be used much like the Southern Poverty Law Center's "hate map," which triggered the attempted murders at the Family Research Council and the GOP baseball practice.
Terror Is Predictably Increasing
Examples of hostilities toward Trump supporters abound. Many are connected to the potential for violence should Trump win re-election. As the examples above show, however, the threat of terror is even greater should he lose. If Democrats gain control of the White House and other branches, the left has spoken openly of their intent to punish a huge swath of Americans with a program that threatens to cancel them, impose thought-reform programs on them, and worse.
How far will this go? Members of the domestic terror organization Weather Underground, headed up by 1960s radical Bill Ayers, explained some 50 years ago that when "the revolution" came, a lot of Americans would have to be located to education camps. This sounds eerily like what Reich and others are now proposing after they oust Trump. Weather Underground members said that those who didn't comply despite re-education, which they estimated would include about 25 million Americans, would have to be eradicated, as in killed.
Of course, that could never happen here, right? Just remember that history is littered with societies filled with decent, normal people who descended into chaos and murder, often incited by propaganda from a heavily controlled media. However unlikely this seems, we must pay close attention to these patterns so we don't repeat some of the darkest days of history.
Fwd: 1 minute political video montage
Old article I wrote
Everywhere I look, I see people in poverty and suffering. No matter what political system you live in, Capitalist or Communist, you have different degrees of the same problem where a tiny percentage of the people own maybe half of everything while a great many others are struggling. What causes this problem? The answer might surprise you.
Nowhere on planet Earth does limited government exist anymore, except maybe in some tiny provinces like Liechtenstein and Luxembourg, which by the way
are doing quite well.
In my retirement, I started a couple of self-employment projects. My point is that people are happier, more productive, and generally more prosperous when they can work for themselves. However, excessive government regulation makes owning your own business so difficult that most people would never try, and those who do often give up. It takes economies of scale to make running a business workable, which is why we have the current corporate culture to which most people find themselves "wage slaves."
The Keynesian idea that government spending drives the economy has failed over and over again. Free people engaging in Free Enterprise drive the economy and make us prosperous. The only way we can get back to that is to reign in excessive government. (We should scrap all regulations and start over with simpler replacements. We should start with the tax code.)
Unfortunately, it might not matter, because the excessive and failed policies of government have driven us so far into debt that we will forever be paying off that debt.

Re: 3 months to Mars
New nuclear engine concept could help realize 3-month trips to MarsSeattle-based Ultra Safe Nuclear Technologies (USNC-Tech) has developed a concept for a new Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) engine and delivered it to NASA. Claimed to be safer and more reliable than previous NTP designs and with far greater efficiency than a chemical rocket, the concept could help realize the goal of using nuclear propulsion to revolutionize deep space travel, reducing Earth-Mars travel time to just three months.
According to Dr. Michael Eades, principal engineer at USNC-Tech, the new concept engine is more reliable than previous NTP designs and can produce twice the specific impulse of a chemical rocket. Specific impulse is a measure of a rocket's efficiency.
To fuel the concept, UNSC-Tech uses a Fully Ceramic Micro-encapsulated (FCM) fuel to power the engine's reactor. This fuel is based on High-Assay Low Enriched Uranium (HALEU), which is derived from reprocessed civilian nuclear fuel and is enriched to between 5 and 20 percent – greater than that of civilian reactors and less than that of naval reactors. The fuel is then encapsulated into particles coated with zirconium carbide (ZrC).

Response to herd immunity post.
Star Trek: Lower Decks Showrunner Claims Every Starfleet Officer Is "Baseline Bisexual"
During the interview, McMahan revealed that Mariner was romantically involved with Captain Amina Ramsey when the two were at the Academy.
The showrunner stated, "The thing about privilege is that some people have it, some people don't. But everybody has their own story as well."
That character is Captain Amina Ramsey. And McMahan would be asked a follow-up on that revelation confirming if she is indeed her lover.
He responded, "We weren't explicit about it, because most of the relationships in this show are familial or friendship love. It's not physical love. That character showing up, the story we're telling about them has nothing to do with any previous relationships they've had."
He then went on to reveal that all the Starfleet officers on the show are "baseline bisexual."
He stated, "For me and for the writers as we were making this, we didn't intentionally mean for anybody to be strictly heteronormative or straight or cis. Every Starfleet officer is probably at the baseline bisexual, in a way. That being said, I am not the most amazing person at writing those kind of stories. I think we get a little bit better about it in the second season."
McMahan would also discuss the show's inclusiveness. He stated, "It's something I think we need to be better about. If there's anything I can say about inclusiveness — whether it's about sex or gender or race or anything — is that I know that I can always learn more and be better about it, and I'm always trying to do that."
He then specifically stated they should have made it clearer that Mariner had a female lover, "This is one of those cases where we could have done a better job of explicitly stating the things that the writers always knew about Mariner. It seeps in there in little ways, which even irritates me even more, like you start off the season with Mariner saying, "Whoa, she's like the hottest girl on the ship, are you nervous?" — that's one of her first lines."
McMahan continued, "That doesn't put a stake in the ground, which I wish we had done a little bit more explicitly. It's always a learning experience. We're going to be trying to be better about it. And we are more explicit about it in the second season."
