Boeing’s Starliner mission has safely docked with the International Space Station after navigating new issues that cropped up overnight and Thursday en route to the orbiting laboratory.

Docking occurred at 1:34 p.m. ET. Now, steps are being taken to more firmly secure the connection between Starliner and the space station’s port.

After a successful launch that was a decade in the making, Boeing’s Starliner mission experienced helium leaks and a temporary loss of thrusters during its journey to the space station, according to NASA.

During the final hour of their approach to the space station, Starliner’s crew began to manually pilot the spacecraft in a planned test of Starliner’s manual flight control capability. Five of the reaction control system thrusters failed on the service module, but they were able to get four of the thrusters firing again.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell claimed on Wednesday that two Senate Democrats could have been charged with ethics violations after they demanded Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito's recusal over flags found flying at his home.

Democratic Sens. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, called for Alito to recuse himself from January 6 cases, and cases related to former President Donald Trump, citing potential conflicts of interest. Whitehouse and Sen. Dick Durbin also asked for a meeting with Chief Justice John Roberts to discuss Alito's recusal. All three are members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

McConnell said the violation was made by Whitehouse and Blumenthal, because they are members of the Supreme Court Bar. Both senators have argued cases in front of the Supreme Court before joining Congress, and lawyers must join the Supreme Court Bar in order to argue cases.

President Biden claimed Thursday that he has “known” Vladimir Putin “for over 40 years” — despite Russia’s president having served as an undercover KGB intelligence officer through the entire 1980s.

“I’ve known him for over 40 years. He’s concerned me for 40 years. He’s not a decent man,” Biden, 81, told ABC News anchor David Muir during an interview in France at the Normandy American Cemetery to commemorate the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

Even some of our brightest scientific minds are projecting that there is absolutely no positive future for our civilization if we stay on our current course.  Perhaps one of the reasons why our society has become so obsessed with short-term results is because most of us can’t bear to think about the long-term consequences of our actions.  I have a website that focuses on “economic collapse”, but it isn’t just the economy that is headed for catastrophe.  Virtually every aspect of our society is coming apart at the seams all around us, and the era that we are moving into will be more nightmarish than most people would dare to imagine.  But our political leaders continue to insist that everything is going to work out just fine somehow, and most people choose to believe them.

This week, an old MIT study from 1972 that projected that our civilization will collapse at some point during the 21st century made headlines on several major news sites…

In 1972, a team of MIT scientists got together to study the risks of civilizational collapse. Their system dynamics model published by the Club of Rome identified impending ‘limits to growth’ (LtG) that meant industrial civilization was on track to collapse sometime within the 21st century, due to overexploitation of planetary resources.

Hallie Biden, who had a brief romantic relationship with Hunter after Beau Biden died in 2015, testified that from the time Hunter returned to Delaware from a 2018 trip to California until she threw his gun away, she did not see him using drugs. That time period included the day he bought the weapon.

Much of her testimony focused on Oct. 23, 2018 — 11 days after he bought the gun and when she tossed it. Hunter was staying with her and seemed exhausted. Asked by the prosecutor if it appeared that Hunter was using drugs around then, she said, “He could have been.”

As Hunter slept in her home, Hallie Biden went to check his car. She said she was hoping to help him get or stay sober, free of both alcohol and cocaine. She said she found the remnants of crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia. She also found the gun Hunter purchased in a box with a broken lock that kept it from fully closing. There was ammunition too.
