At first, it was just another bright, fuzzy speck in the sky. But it may turn out to be something much more exciting: the second known object to hurtle through our solar system after leaving another system.

Astronomers will need a lot more observations before they can be confident giving the comet that title, but early data about the object seems promising. That would make the comet, currently known as Comet C/2019 Q4 (Borisov) after the person who first spotted it, the first traveling successor to the interstellar object 'Oumuamua, which was discovered in October 2017.

"Based on the available observations, the orbit solution for this object has converged to the hyperbolic elements shown below, which would indicate an interstellar origin,"

Trump breaks the law, again. Obsesses on his Alabama error as hurricane pounds the Carolinas

>18 U.S. Code 2074, which states that it is illegal to knowingly falsely represent a forecast or warning issued by the Weather Bureau.

He posted nine tweets and five maps about Alabama and the big storm.

He defended a doctored hurricane map that had been altered with a black Sharpie to include the state.

And he had his White House release a 225-word statement defending his erroneous warnings that Alabama was “going to get a piece” of the storm.

As Hurricane Dorian battered the Carolinas with torrential rain and wind Thursday, President Trump remained fixated on sunny Alabama — a state he falsely claimed was in the storm’s crosshairs long after it was in the clear.

For a fourth straight day, Trump’s White House sought to clean up the president’s mistaken warnings to Alabama from Sunday, seeking to defend Trump’s tweets by releasing statements, disseminating alternative hurricane maps and attacking the media.

Trump also took to Twitter again to defend his use of a doctored and outdated hurricane map that looped in Alabama using black marker — the latest iteration in a days-long, administration-wide campaign on the topic.

In effect, Trump was attempting to bend time — claiming that a projection that was several days out of date was accurate at the time he warned Alabama of a dire threat that didn’t exist.

“Just as I said, Alabama was originally projected to be hit,” Trump tweeted Thursday, highlighting week-old maps that showed a low probability of tropical-storm winds in a small corner of Alabama. “The Fake News denies it!”

John Bolton OUT

https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/10/politics/trump-john-bolton-out/index.html

President Donald Trump abruptly announced Tuesday that he has asked national security adviser John Bolton to resign, noting that he "strongly disagreed with many" of Bolton's suggestions "as did others in the administration."

"I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House. I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration, and therefore I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning," Trump tweeted. "I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week," he added.

The tweet came just one hour after the White House press office said Bolton was scheduled to appear at a Tuesday press briefing alongside Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

Bolton tweeted minutes after Trump's announcement, "I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, 'Let's talk about it tomorrow.'"

Bolton reiterated the point that it was he who offered to resign on Fox News Tuesday.
Bolton's ouster was so sudden that the now-former National Security Adviser even led a meeting of top administration officials, known as a principals committee meeting, Tuesday morning prior to Trump's tweet, a source familiar told CNN.

The source said the meeting went on as planned and there was no indication that Bolton's firing was imminent.

Nearly 1 in 5 Americans believe AOC created the New Deal

No.458342 ViewReplyOriginalReport
They're only off by one word—and 86 years.

A new poll by a higher education advocacy group found that 18% of American adults believe Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was behind the New Deal, the package of government interventions President Franklin Delano Roosevelt introduced in 1933.

The freshman congresswoman representing Queens and the Bronx is in fact the primary House sponsor of a resolution called the Green New Deal, named for the original Depression-era legislation. It lays out ways to slash carbon emissions and move the American economy off fossil fuels.

The American Council of Trustees and Alumni, which sponsored the study of 1,002 adults, blamed the lack of basic civic awareness on the education system.

"When American history and government courses are removed, you begin to see disheartening survey responses like these," Michael Poliakoff, the group's president, said in a release.

The University of Chicago's National Opinion Research Center, which conducted the research, found that college graduates were slightly better informed than the populace at large: 12% of those with a degree conflated the Ocasio-Cortez and Roosevelt agendas.

These were not the only disturbing results. More than a quarter of those surveyed believed that Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's controversial Supreme Court appointee, holds the role of chief justice. That position in fact belongs to John Roberts. And almost two-thirds of Americans—and more than half of college graduates—did not know the term lengths of members of the House of Representatives (two years) and U.S. Senate (six).
