    CNN: Undetected Asteroids Could Threaten Earth During Government Shutdown - Breitbart

    by KATHERINE RODRIGUEZ
    21 Jan 2018

    Two CNN correspondents claimed during an episode of The Lead with Jake Tapper that an asteroid could potentially threaten the Earth if the government shutdown continues.
    CNN correspondent Tom Foreman recalled the time NASA could not monitor “potentially dangerous asteroids” for over two weeks, implying that NASA would not be able to prevent an asteroid attack if it hit Earth while the government shut down.

    “In space, that same year, for more than two weeks, NASA reportedly stopped monitoring potentially dangerous asteroids. A big one, by the way, is expected to brush by Earth on February 4th,” Foreman noted.

    [...]

    Foreman added that if Congress does not reach a deal on a funding package and DACA amnesty negotiations, illegal aliens would be “thrust into a dangerous legal limbo.”

    “If there is no deal as these negotiations stand right now, nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants who came as children, the so-called DREAMers would be thrust into a dangerous legal limbo,” he said.

    Neither are TFR. CNN was citing legitimate concerns.

    Unless a threatening asteroid is detected many years away, with current technology, there is absolutely nothing that could be done about it so unless the Shutdown is going to last for years the story is nonsense

      Well, at least we wouldn't stress out over it.

      If we did spot one two weeks out, what we do about it? Hit the brakes? Fire ICBMs at a moving target?

        Actually that's the Russian plan of action. https://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/ru...roi-1758697417

          Well, they won't make the CNN's two week deadline.

            Who's going to tell the asteroids that a single government has shut down ?

            Northern Ireland's lack of a government doesn't seem to've had much effect.
            Indyref2 - still, "Yes."

              Sometime after 2036. If I'm still around by then I reckon I'll have had a fair run for my money (selfish I know). If the US government shutdown is still on by then I suspect there won't be a USA as such anyway.

              BTW using a nuke is generally regarded as useless unless the thing is quite small

                  I'll be happy when CNN is concerned about the impact DACA's are having on Mexico after having been thrust back over the wall.

                    The only thing the Irish have an effect on are whiskey supplies and crime.

                    NASA can't even get into orbit anymore.

                          This just in... Scientists brace for impact!!!
                          Scientists in the United States are bracing for impact after lawmakers in Congress failed to agree on a plan to fund the government, triggering its indefinite shutdown on 20 January.

                          [...]

                          But worst of all, many researchers say, there is no clear sign when the shutdown will end.
