First Newton, then Darwin

Despite the usual scientific consensus, Dark Matter increasingly appears to be on its way out. (Dark Vapor, on the other hand, rests on the same secure foundation it always has. I await my Nobel with placid confidence.) And there’s no point whining that it’s scientists who are doing the demolition job; it’s scientists who will eventually demolish TENS and AGW/CC too once they manage to overcome the intellectual inertia imposed by the great scientific unwashed.

More precisely, all classical satellites of the Milky Way – the eleven brightest dwarf galaxies – lie more or less in the same plane, they are forming some sort of a disc in the sky. The research team has also been able to show that most of these satellite galaxies rotate in the same direction around the Milky Way – like the planets revolve around the Sun.

The physicists do belief that this phenomenon can only be explained if the satellites were created a long time ago through collisions between younger galaxies. “The fragments produced by such an event can form rotating dwarf galaxies,” explains Dr. Metz. But there is an interesting catch to this crash theory, “theoretical calculations tell us that the satellites created cannot contain any dark matter.” This assumption, however, stands in contradiction to another observation. “The stars in the satellites we have observed are moving much faster than predicted by the Gravitational Law. If classical physics holds this can only be attributed to the presence of dark matter,” Manuel Metz states.

Or one must assume that some basic fundamental principles of physics have hitherto been incorrectly understood.

I always enjoy the moment when scientists finally throw up their hands and quit trying to draw the elaborate epicycles that permit them to force the square data into the round theory. Perhaps the astrophysicists have finally gotten around to reaching this point. The biologists are rather less bright, so no doubt it will take them rather longer to face the scientific reality.

Of course, they can always take the Keynesian approach. “Make it bigger, then it’ll work for sure!” That will buy them a few decades before it all collapses. But eventually every idea, every scientific concept, must stand or fall on its own merits. Science is not democracy and scientific consensus has no more bearing on the evidence than the book-selling consensus has on literary quality.

The Get-Out-Of-War Free card

The Pentagon knows, or least suspects, that Barack Obama/Soetoro is not eligible for the office he presently purports to hold:

A U.S. Army Reserve major from Florida scheduled to report for deployment to Afghanistan within days has had his military orders revoked after he argued that he should not be required to serve under a president who has not proven his legitimacy for office. His attorney, Orly Taitz, confirmed to WND the military has rescinded his impending deployment orders….

A hearing on the questions raised by Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook, an engineer who told WND he wants to serve his country in Afghanistan, was scheduled for July 16 at 9:30 a.m. “As an officer in the armed forces of the United States, it is [my] duty to gain clarification on any order we may believe illegal. With that said, if President Obama is found not to be a ‘natural-born citizen,’ he is not eligible to be commander-in-chief,” he told WND only hours after the case was filed.

This should get interesting. The courts can’t pretend, as they have done numerous times in the recent past, that Major Cook has no standing. Since the military either knows or suspects that its purported Commander-in-Chief can’t back up his birth claims, they don’t want to take the chance of the issue going to court where Obama/Soetoro will be forced to put up or give up.

Of course, this also means that every soldier who doesn’t wish to serve in Afghanistan or Iraq was just handed a get-out-of-war free card. If Obama/Soetoro does not come clean and release his documentation now to settle the matter, this will be an implicit confession that he is not, in fact, eligible to be president. How can he or his defenders possibly justify hiding all of the relevant documents when it means giving every soldier in the U.S. military a veto on accepting orders?

The mutating stories and multiple hospitals where Obama/Soetoro was supposedly born strongly suggest that America’s first Indonesian faux president is not going to be able to keep a lid on his election scandal much longer.

UPDATE – Major Cook gets fired:

According to the CEO of Simtech Inc., a private company contracted by the Defense Security Services, an agency of the Department of Defense, the federal agency has compelled the termination of Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook.

Well, I’m confident firing the guy asking questions will surely help convince the American people that the Pentagon has the utmost confidence in the provable legitimacy of their Commander-in-Chief. Seriously, don’t they have anyone who understands the way propaganda is supposed to work there anymore? If it were Putin, he would have brought the major to the White House for a very public meet-and-greet, privately shown him whatever real or faked documents would satisfy the man, then sent him off to Afghanistan to win an impressive and posthumously awarded medal.

Unimpressed by the Wise Latina

Folks, come on. She’s an affirmative action judge. What else did you expect?

Seidman: “I was completely disgusted by Judge Sotomayor’s testimony today. If she was not perjuring herself, she is intellectually unqualified to be on the Supreme Court. If she was perjuring herself, she is morally unqualified.”

Stras: “I would say that this is not a judge that understands the role of the federal judiciary. A court without subject matter jurisdiction should not decide the merits of an appeal; it is the very definition of an advisory opinion. What I find ironic is that there are a number of difficult cases where the panel in which Judge Sotomayor participated did not write a reasoned opinion (Didden, Maloney, and especially Ricci), but she wrote a lengthy, reasoned opinion over an issue in which the court had no jurisdiction. Go figure.”

Speaking for myself, I couldn’t possibly care less. I hope they put the Wise Latina on the court along with a black lesbian, a crippled Jew, a Somali jihadist from Minnesota, Michelle Obama, and Bill Clinton. The Supreme Court has been a total farce for decades, better that the farce be made open and apparent to all.

And bring back Rehnquist’s gold lamé-striped robes! Better yet, dress them all in gold lamé burqahs.
