So it's official then? Aliens are real?

Drumpf, according to Clovis' account, claimed to have read his work.

Trump read something?  That'd be a first.

What's official is Trump hates the US Government, and is trying to tear it down from the inside.

/Alien attacks barely register as frightening when the President is a Russian saboteur.

Yep. There's no other reason to hire this douche or most of Trump's other picks.

This is all about dumb people who believe they're smarter than smart people, and doing their level best to prove it.

Clovis said in a radio interview in early 2014 that a UFO traveled toward him at 5,000 miles per hour, came to a complete stop, and then turned around, flying away once more at 5,000 mph.

I wonder if anyone asked him what it sounded like.  If nothing else, there should have been two quite loud booms.

What does 'race traitor' even mean?  I've got white skin, but I don't recall ever swearing allegiance to an absence of melanin.

Well, the approach would probably sound almost exactly like 100,000 people simultaneously saying "WHOP". And the departure would sound almost exactly like 100,000 people simultaneously saying "FOOP".

I thought this was common knowledge.

Well, with that revolving door of advisors, the pool of qualified applicants is probably bottom of the barrel, so...

Wow another racist in the WH but Trump is totally not a racist. There are many sides people, many sides and good people on that side.

Nazis are Nazis because they are weak people who want to feel strong. When other white people make Nazis feel weak, then those white people are damaging the "white" identity Nazis want to be a part of.

I think the important question is why the ship stopped so suddenly at this fine human specimen, apparently took a moment to do something (ponder, perhaps) and then decided to book it at full speed never to return.

I'm actually kind of okay with having a raving UFO conspiracy theorist working in the White House. I feel like his actions over the years months days of his tenure will tell us a lot about whether there is information that the gov't knows about.

I can't imagine that the combination of Trump and this guy will keep the good stuff under wraps....

Indeed. This administration's combination of crazy and inept is mostly keeping you guys safe at the moment, it seems.

Might be a bit of a clusterfark in an emergency though...

But that wouldn't make that person a traitor.  That's just make them someone who doesn't mind hurting Nazi's feelings.

Which, in a just world, would be everyone.

"Race traitor" is a very popular term with the Stormfront/Aryan Nation/Christian Identity types. I've never heard it used outside that context. It is basically used to describe any white person who doesn't actively support the 14 words. So, white woman who doesn't get married and have lots of white babies is a race traitor. A man who does business with "globalists" (read: Jewish interests) is a race traitor. It can be a catch-all for any kind of pluralism, really, but it can also be very specific, like a euphemism for n****r lover.

Sort of like how the new crop of deplorables uses "cuck" for anyone they disagree with.

'Race traitor' directly implies there is an open conflict between races and that your actions are openly harmful to your own race.

Or to me it means that the person making the accusation is beneath my contempt and that they should be ignored since that type of thought has no place in a civilized society.

It's nuggets like this that make me want to load up all of the people in the "shouldn't impeach Trump" thread who say, "You can't impeach someone just cause you don't like him" on a spaceship along with all the middle managers, hairdressers and telephone sanitizers and send them on their journey.

Yeah, the term "Chunky Salsa" came to mind.

But in reality the aliens would need some kind of might-as-well-be-magic inertial cancellation gadget or it's going to be smooth salsa.

I'd calculate the number of G's felt while coming to a halt from 5,000 M.P.H over, say, a quarter second but, I'm feeling too lazy to do the math.

Social conservatives HATE science literacy with a passion.  It's in their DNA, with their hard-ons for war, money, polluting energy, wealthy people, religion and business suits.

Our last Conservative PM was so anti-science he appointed a goddam Chiropractor in the science and technology portfolio.  Oh, he was big on voter suppression, building more prisons for the "tough on crime" types.

Damn those assholes.
