A "mystery rocket" crashed into the moon and NASA is baffled as to origin


A “mystery rocket” crashed into the Moon earlier this year and NASA says none of Earth’s space-faring nations have claimed it as theirs:

NASA has discovered the crash site of a "mystery rocket body" that collided with the Moon's surface earlier this year. The impact left behind a widespread "double crater," meaning it wasn't the average rocket.

However, since its crash landing, none of Earth's space-exploring nations have claimed responsibility for the mysterious projectile, leaving NASA scientists baffled as to who was behind its launch. New images shared on June 24 by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter show the unusual impact site.

"Surprisingly the crater is actually two craters, an eastern crater (18-meter diameter, about 19.5 yards) superimposed on a western crater (16-meter diameter, about 17.5 yards," NASA reported. "The double crater was unexpected...No other rocket body impacts on the Moon created double craters."

Astronomers anticipated the crash after spotting the unidentified rocket on a collision course with the Moon late last year. It finally hit on March 4 near the Hertzsprung crater, a "complex" impact crater on the far side of the Moon. NASA stated that the two large masses on each end of the rocket may have caused the craters, but noted that the impact marks are highly unusual. Spent rockets, according to NASA, tend to have a heavy motor at one end and a lighter empty fuel tank on the other, scientists say. The space agency did not offer any guesses on what the additional mass was.

DHS warns of potential violent extremist activity in response to abortion ruling

The Department of Homeland Security intelligence branch is warning law enforcement, first responders and private sector partners nationwide Friday of potential domestic violence extremist activity in response to the Supreme Court's decision on abortion, according to a memo obtained by CNN.

The memo from the DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis says federal and state government officials, including judges, "probably are most at risk for violence in response to the decision."

It also includes warnings about "First Amendment protected events," reproductive and "family advocacy health care facilities," and faith-based organizations being targets for violence or criminal incidents.

"Americans' freedom of speech and right to peacefully protest are fundamental Constitutional rights. Those rights do not extend to violence and other illegal activity. DHS will continue working with our partners across every level of government to share timely information and to support law enforcement efforts to keep our communities safe," a Homeland Security spokesperson told CNN in a statement.

Jfc, you'd think we were trying to overthrow the government. Oh wait, this warning wasn't issued when a coup was occurring in DC.


Alito cited writers from the 1700's and 13th century in his opinion


As in the leaked draft, the Court majority signs on to Alito approvingly citing:

A "13th-century" treatise which said hitting or poisoning a pregnant woman in a way that "caused abortion" was "homicide."


Alito cites writers from the 1700s to approvingly note their view that "abortion of a 'quick' child was 'by the ancient law homicide or manslaughter' [or] a very 'heinous

This court( the Republican members) has absolute contempt for women.

Originalism is a scam. But we all knew that.


Thomas declares: "the Second and Fourteenth Amendments protect an individual's right to carry a handgun for self-defense outside the home" - there is ZERO textual support for that. Ex. 9999 why "originalism" is a scam
