What if our scientific assumptions about outer space have been wrong

“This was completely unexpected,” Bolton said.

 

“You have a deep band of ammonia that goes from the top of Jupiter as deep as we can see.

 

It goes down to 350 kilometers (217 miles) because that’s the limit of where we’re looking.”

If Albert Gore Junior had done the same we wouldn’t still have druids and socialists running around selling so-called climate exchange credits.

The ammonia band may penetrate even deeper inside Jupiter, Bolton said.

The first months of observations of the solar system’s biggest planet from NASA’s Juno spacecraft have revealed huge swirling polar cyclones, previously undetected structures and motions beneath Jupiter’s distinctive clouds, and the first evidence for what lies at the core of the gas giant, scientists said Thursday.

 

There was plenty scientists did not know about the planet when the Juno spacecraft left Earth in 2011, and the probe has sought answers to questions about Jupiter’s interior, magnetic field, auroras and radiation belts, and used a visible light camera to capture the first direct views of the poles.

“The general theme of our discoveries is really how different Jupiter looks from what we expected,” said Scott Bolton, Juno’s principal investigator at the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio. “Juno, in many ways, is looking inside Jupiter for the first time, close-up and personal.”

Since Juno arrived at its destination July 4, 2016, to wrap up a five-year interplanetary trip, the spacecraft, built and operated by Lockheed Martin, has circled Jupiter six times in an oval-shaped loop that extends a few million miles at its farthest point. Each lap takes more than 53 days, and Juno speedily skirts within 3,000 miles (5,000 kilometers) Jupiter’s cloud tops at closest approach.

Juno’s science instruments collect most of their data when the orbiter is near Jupiter, taking pictures, measuring plasma and electrons, and probing deep inside the planet to find out what is hidden under its cloudy veneer.

Many scientists thought Jupiter was “relatively boring and uniform” inside before Juno arrived, Bolton said.

“For decades, scientists have assumed this, that if we drop below the cloud tops, below where the sunlight reaches, that pretty much Jupiter was all uniform inside, and it really didn’t matter where you looked, it would all look the same,” Bolton said Thursday. “And what we’re finding is anything but that is the truth. It’s very different and very complex.”

 

Juno’s microwave radiometer, an instrument similar to those aboard climate satellites looking down on Earth, gathers sounding measurements to peer below the red-orange tapestry of Jupiter’s cloud tops.

The radiometer is tuned to six wavelengths, detecting thermal radiation emitted from different layers of the atmosphere from the storm clouds and jet streams to as deep as 300 miles, or about 500 kilometers.

Going into Juno’s mission, scientists anticipated Jupiter’s atmosphere to be relatively consistent deeper than 60 miles, or 100 kilometers.

Instead, Juno’s microwave radiometer discovered a belt of ammonia around Jupiter’s equator and variations in ammonia abundances at other latitudes extending deep into the planet’s atmosphere.

 

“What this is telling us is that Jupiter is not very well-mixed,” Bolton said. “It’s not all uniform inside. The idea of, once you drop below the sunlight, that everything would all be uniform, boring and mixed up was completely wrong. It’s actually very different depending on where you look.”

The findings suggest more ammonia farther down in Jupiter’s atmosphere, and the ammonia detections appear to have no relationship with the zones and belts of clouds visible in pictures from space.

“That’s really going to force us to rethink not only how Jupiter works, but how do we explore Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune if they are highly variable like this?” Bolton said.

Other parts of Juno’s scientific sensor suite are mapping Jupiter’s gravity field to learn about the heart of the planet.

 

 

“When we went to go measure the gravity field, what we were really looking for was the core — whether there was a compact core or no core,” Bolton said.

“Instead, what we found was that it really looks fuzzy. There may be a core there, but it’s very big, and it may be partially dissolved. We’re studying that, but that came as a big surprise to us that there was no core.”

Theories about Jupiter’s core before Juno arrived predominately predicted the planet either had a small, dense rocky core between one and 10 times as massive as Earth or no core at all, scientists said.

“Most scientists were in one camp or the other, and what we found was really neither was true,” Bolton said.

“There may be a little bit of a compact core, but there may be layers there, and there seems to be a fuzzy core that may be much larger than anybody had anticipated.

“The gravity data that we’ve gotten thus far is not really consistent with just a small compact core or zero core, but it is somewhat consistent with a large fuzzy core that may be partially dissolved,” Bolton said. “It’s also consistent, maybe, with some deep motions, or zonal winds and things like that … dictating the interior of Jupiter’s dynamics, which are very different from historically models have assumed.”

Jupiter’s intense magnetic field, the strongest of any planet in the solar system, has also been interrogated by Juno, which has a magnetometer mounted at the end of one of the craft’s three solar array wings.

 

NASA’s Juno spacecraft is investigating the structure and convection of Jupiter’s interior by reaching through the meteorological layer, the top layer of the planet’s atmosphere. A possible inner “rock” core is shown, surrounded by a metallic hydrogen envelope (shown in blue) and the outer envelope of molecular hydrogen (shown in brown), all hidden beneath the visible cloud deck. Juno’s gravity field data will reveal new clues about Jupiter’s core. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/SwRI

Jack Connerney, Juno’s deputy principal investigator at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, described the magnetometer as like a “fancy compass” that can measure the direction and strength of Jupiter’s magnetic field.

Juno has come closer to Jupiter than any mission before, and proximity yields better magnetic field measurements, Connerney said.

There’s a New Queen of Comedy in Town

Allegedly Chuck Schumer’s cousin by birth, I had no idea that inbreeding was fashionable among those of the Jewish Faith in New York.

 

Look out Amy Schumer, you have had your 15 minutes of political fame.

 

Cousin Chuck will be lucky to keep his seat in the U.S. Senate.

Go back to the hills of West Virginia where you both belong.

It’s time for you to move along.

Yes, sadly the circus is gone, but there is no shortage of clowns still fully employed.

One of the leaders in fake news and liberal propaganda, CNN head Jeff Zucker, said his network is where people come when they want facts. I think I now understand why CNN performs so poorly: the guy running the network has no idea what “viewers” or “facts” are. 

Earlier this week a terrorist detonated a suicide bomb and killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England.

You don’t have to be a seasoned reporter or Ivy League educated journalist to understand that a terrorist bombing that killed mostly young people and children is a big news story.
While this was breaking, CNN chose to air a panel discussion about how President Trump should be impeached for firing FBI director James Comey.

I’m not kidding, this is what CNN thought was more important than an ISIS attack on innocent people with mass casualties.

Even Mediate, which is normally pretty liberal, thought it was a little partisan to keep slamming Trump rather than cover a major news story.

They reached out to CNN head Jeff Zucker to get his response on this.
“We’re not in a race to be first. We’re in a race to be right. CNN is held to a different standard than other cable networks that focus primarily on opinion.
People come to us for facts, and there is no room for error with facts.”  Look out Amy Schumer, there’s a new queen of comedy up in here!
 What makes this even funnier is that Zucker actually believes what he said.

CNN is a network that doesn’t deal much in fact, but rather liberal opinion and ideology. Just recently we have enjoyed these stories from CNN that are supposedly fact-based:

Don Lemon Blames Trump For Congressional Candidate Attacking A Reporter

Chris Cillizza Orders Everyone To Stop Talking About Anthony Weiner Sex Scandal
Anderson Cooper Talks About President Trump Taking A Shit On His Desk
Jake Tapper Says The Media Has Assassinated 4 Presidents
Jeanie Moos Investigates If Trump Is Afraid Of Stairs
CNN Blasts Trump Administration For Thinking Russian Dressing Comes From Russia

I defy anyone to find facts, even partial ones, in any of the above-mentioned reporting. Shit like this, which is a regular feature on CNN, is the exact opposite of bias-free hard news.

Not only doesn’t Zucker know anything about viewers or the truth, he has no idea what actually constitutes news.

Cowardice of Leakers of Classified Information: Let’s discuss their Criminality

By Jim Campbell

May 27, 2017

 

There is no irony to the supposition that the so-called leakers come forward with items that would have benefited their ill-gotten cause, it would be all over the media.

When it isn’t the refuse to cover it in an attempt to make sure we don’t hear about it, thus forcing those who believe them to follow along with their false sense of reality.

If you leave anything stated in the piece that follows, you likely voted for Hillary Clinton or you are clearly too ignorant to vote.
Leaking classified information has become the new norm, and the leakers are providing a feeding frenzy for the media.

These leakers are not patriots, but criminals and their actions have already alienated key allies and caused distress in the Trump White House and in the intelligence agencies.

 

A monument to Edward Snowden Julian Assange and all whistle blowers of the world must be built in Mt. Rushmore stature.

 

The leakers’ goal is to undermine the duly elected leader of the country and his agenda, even at the high price of committing a criminal act.

The Department of Justice has already initiated steps to cut off the illicit information channels but it might be difficult to find and punish those responsible.
These leakers are not heroes but cowards, cowards willing to put our security at risk to score a point for their own agendas on the front pages of The New York Times and Washington Post.  Their actions border on Treason, and should be dealt with swiftly and with Extreme Prodigious, and the full extent of the law.
Their actions border on Treason and should be dealt with swiftly and with Extreme Prodigious, and the full extent of the law.

Trump promises climate decision next week after G7 stalemate

Since there is no prospective science validate man’s role in so-called man-caused carbon induced climate change, look for President of the United States, Donald Trump to blow them off.

Trump is to pro growth, pro business and against many of the unneeded restrictions never passed into law by the EPA, they will be lucky to still have a serious budget to carry on with their important works if they don’t put a cork in it.

 

President Trump will not submit to Al Gore’s delusions shared with tree huggers across the globe.

Nope, those who pray at the altar of “The Reverend Albert Gore Junior.” will soon be getting smacked.

Al Gore’s delusions are based on wealth redistribution, a Marxist scheme whereby more affluent countries like the U.S. must spread the wealth. 

While Gore and his blinded by the light followers seek to make money-making billions off of carbon offset programs that make them wealthy and do nothing for the environment.

 

 

That’s just one of the many reasons he was elected.

 

Watch President Trump tell them all to go straight to Hell.

 

 

The unexpected announcement came as a summit of G7 leaders in Sicily wrapped up in deadlock on the issue, with US partners voicing frustration at the president’s failure to commit to the deal aimed at stemming global warming.

“I will make my final decision on the Paris Accord next week!” Trump tweeted.

The US leader, concluding his first overseas trip in office, was due to fly home later Saturday without giving the customary close-of-summit press conference.


 
 Taormina (Italy) (AFP) – President Donald Trump said Saturday that he would decide next week whether the United States would abide by the 2015 Paris agreement on cutting global carbon emissions.

The meeting’s final declaration reflected a stalemate between the US and the six other participating countries, who are all strongly committed to the Paris accord.

“The United States of America is in the process of reviewing its policies on climate change and on the Paris Agreement and thus is not in a position to join the consensus on these topics,” it stated.

“Understanding this process, the (other participants) reaffirm their strong commitment to swiftly implement the Paris Agreement… 

“In this context, we all agree on the importance of supporting developing countries.”

German Chancellor Angela Merkel criticized what she called “a very difficult, not to say very unsatisfactory” discussion with Trump on the issue.

“Here we have a situation of six against one, meaning there is still no sign of whether the US will remain in the Paris accord or not,” she said.

Other delegates concurred that it was “six against one” at the gathering of leading democracies spanning North America, Europe, and Japan.

The Irony: George Carlin on Trump before Trump

By Jim Campbell

May 27, 2017

 

George Carlin was arguably the greatest political commentators of our time.

He was up there among the greatest comedians as well.

The irony lies in the fact that those who were cheering and clapping during his riff would not do so today.

 

Why?

Political correctness of course.

The same people would remain, mum today, because at least 50% of them have been brainwashed to believe he is wrong when he’s absolutely correct.

Think about that folks, and they vote.

They are members of today’s left in politics.

 

 

 

 

 

Yep, how odd that those who need to understand the philosophy of George Carlin most, even if the listened to his wisdom would still not understand what is teaching them. 

 

It’s a shame George didn’t tell us exactly when Democrats would become extinct.

A very difficult task, even from the grave.

 

RIP George who passed on Jun 22, 2008,  Santa Monica, CA.

Upon his death in 2008 at the age of 71, American comedy lost one of the sharpest and truest voices it had ever known.

Over five decades, Carlin forged a body of work that is awe-inspiring in terms of its breadth, intelligence, and relevance. 

The Irish Catholic kid from Corpus Christi parish in Harlem–with barely more than a year of high school education–combined his own fierce and fearlessly questioning mind with the lessons he’d learned on the streets of New York to craft comedy that made audiences laugh and challenged them to think.

The Problem with ‘Lock Them Up’ Politics

A premise of Criminal Law suggests that if found guilty by a jury of his or her peers, those found guilty will be sent to prison.

 

Said differently, “If you can’t do the time, don’t do they crime.

This may actually date back to the original teachings of the Bible, under an “Eye for an Eye.

The criminalization of political differences destroys what’s left of civility in our political culture.

So what’s the problem?

As I see it, it’s only the fact that Republicans rarely go after Democrats thought to be involved with criminal activity as they should.

 

They must become relentless pit bulls against those they believe to be guilty of crimes.

Had they done so, with majorities in the House and the U.S. Senate, Obama would have been impeached by the House and found Guilty in the Senate.

For a year, Democrats listened to crowds at Trump rallies and even the delegates at the Republican National Convention engage in chants of “lock her up.”

 

Today, the Internet is reverberating with Democrats engaging in some virtual revenge as the latest leaks about the investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians have indicated that Jared Kushner is a “person of interest.”

That means liberals are chortling about the president’s son-in-law having to choose between a jail cell and informing on his wife’s father.

Of course, even the Washington Post story that reported the leak indicated that Kushner is not a target of the investigation or even a principal, (Source) focus of its activities and that he hasn’t actually been accused of any wrongdoing.

Member of the Congressional Black Caucus, Maxine Waters sits on no committees where she would have no knowledge of her idiotic observations stated below. (Source)

To be forever archived in the Maxine Waters, “Hall of Shame.”

 

 

But in a fishing expedition in search of a crime that no one can put his finger on, whether it is treason or incomplete disclosure forms, anyone can be a person of interest when he’s at the nexus of the Trump campaign and government like Kushner.

Of course, Ivanka’s husband isn’t the only one being fitted for an orange jumpsuit by Trump’s foes.

Former national-security adviser Michael Flynn has already invoked his Fifth Amendment rights to avoid incrimination.

No presumption of guilt or innocence can be made when a defendant takes the 5th Amendment.

 

 

Any criminal attorney worth his salt would advise his client to do the same.

General Flynn is absolutely under no circumstances to help the government prove their shaky case against him.

It appears the former general didn’t report the money he got from a Putin propaganda outlet or the fees he was paid for lobbying for another authoritarian government, us of its activities and that he hasn’t actually been accused of any wrongdoing.

Suit against Hillary Clinton over Benghazi deaths and emails is dismissed

Does the reader seriously expect a just ruling from a leftist judge who felt it was important to insert her own beliefs, thus once again adjudicating from the bench?

 

For the purposes of the suit, “it…does not matter whether Secretary Clinton used a private email server lawfully or unlawfully.

Instead, the relevant inquiry is whether Secretary Clinton’s electronic communications with State Department personnel about official business during her tenure were within the scope of her employment as the head of the State Department,” the judge said.

“Her actions – communicating with other State Department personnel and advisors about the official business of the department, fell squarely within the scope of her duty to run the Department and conduct the foreign affairs of the nation as Secretary of State.”

The judge also rejected the defamation claims, concluding that Clinton’s public statements that the family members’ were “wrong” about what she’d said to them about the motivation for the attack were not the equivalent of saying they lied.

 
 This ruling puts her decision up there with those of attorney general Loretta Lynch where justice was never considered when a Democrat was involved.

 

Hillary Clinton’s hand will always have blood on them as far as here involvement in Benghazi and its subsequent cover-up are concerned.

One simple question put her and Obama in the middle of this horrible night.

How could she have not requested additional air support and troops on the ground if she didn’t know the planning involved and when the death filled charade would be over?

That’s a question she must answer under oath.

 

A federal judge in Washington has dismissed a lawsuit alleging that Hillary Clinton’s lax security surrounding her emails led to the deaths of two of the Americans killed in the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.

U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointee, tossed out the wrongful death claims as well as allegations that Clinton essentially slandered the parents of the deceased by contradicting accounts the parents gave of events related to their children’s deaths.

The suit was filed last August by Patricia Smith, the mother of State Department information officer Sean Smith, and Charles Woods, the father of CIA operative Tyrone Woods.

The parents sued weeks after Patricia Smith took to the stage at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland to deliver an emotional speech blasting the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee and for failing to save the four Americans who died in the Benghazi attack while she was secretary of state: Smith, Woods, CIA operative Glen Doherty and U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.

Jackson dismissed the wrongful death portion of the suit on technical grounds after granting the State Department’s motion to step in as the defendant on those claims.

 

The Obama-appointed judge concluded Clinton used her email in the course of her official duties.

 

“The Court finds that Secretary Clinton was acting in the scope of her employment when she transmitted the emails that are alleged to give rise to her liability,” Jackson wrote in her 29-page opinion.

“The untimely death of plaintiffs’ sons is tragic, and the Court does not mean to minimize the unspeakable loss that plaintiffs have suffered in any way.

But when one applies the appropriate legal standards, it is clear that plaintiffs have not alleged sufficient facts to rebut the presumption that Secretary Clinton was acting in her official capacity when she used her private email server.” (Seriously? On what planet?)

 

Jackson cautioned that she was not opining on the appropriateness of Clinton’s use of the private server or on whether what she said publicly about the Benghazi episode in its immediate aftermath.

“Nothing about this decision should be construed as making any determination or expressing any opinion about the propriety of the use of the private email server or the content or accuracy of the statements made by the Secretary to the family members or to anyone else in the days following the Benghazi attack,” the judge wrote.
