Um, gee! I wonder what can go wrong with that? The only other question along those lines is, should we bring the moon with us?

All we have to do is accelerate Louie to very close to the speed of light, admittedly closer than electrons are in the LHC, and shoot him off the Earth. Depending on that direction, the Earth will go into a higher or lower orbit. At very close to lightspeed, his mass would increase, possibly a lot. It would help if he’d eat 40000 pounds of oatmeal first. The energy required to get him close to lightspeed would be a lot. Generating bullshit takes energy, and Louie can generate measurably infinite amounts of bullshit so one has to assume he has infinite energy (why hasn’t spacetime imploded around him already? This is a conundrum).

using standard non-relativistic Newtonian physics you can change the velocity of the Earth in any direction via F = m * a and v = v_0 + a * t
With a force of roughly 6 * 10 ^ 24 Newtons you get an acceleration of 1 meter per second squared.
Do it for 10 seconds and you get an additional velocity of 10 meters per second.
Don’t think you gonna be able to get the force though.

Most people are aware of Aliens. They must all be demonized for the Establishement to open a new Front. Benevolent Ones would disarm nuclear warheads so they are the new enemy keeping America from being Number 1 when it is an empire dismantling itself.

It’s just the energy needed to get massive objects to swing around earth is the non starter. Though as mentioned by others Gomert is really dense. Sending him into space would be a good start.

Most of today’s elites have the moral and social reasoning capacities of spoiled toddlers.
“People of privilege will always risk their complete destruction rather than surrender any material part of their advantage...but the privileged also feel that their privileges, however egregious they may seem to others, are a solemn, basic, God-right. The sensitivity of the poor to injustice is a trivial thing c
