At least once
a week I get an email from someone forwarding what they claim to
be irrefutable proof that we never landed our Apollo astronauts
on the moon and that the whole thing was faked.

With NASA back
in the news this time as a make-work "Jobs Program" —
everyone desperately trying to keep from having to find productive
work in the private sector — I thought that perhaps I would add
my own voice to the debate.

I believe that
the question about whether or not the US actually landed on the
moon is simply another version of the same old government tactic:

they can get people asking the wrong questions, they don't have
to worry about their answers…"

I think that
the probability that we u2018faked' the whole thing is pretty remote.
My reason is simple. I believe that with existing technology that
it was doable in the 1960's and it would be a lot safer to do it
if possible than to risk faking it unnecessarily.

Besides, our
federal agencies were all plenty busy. Just think about everything
that they had on their plates at that time: Covering their tracks
after killing JFK in broad daylight just a few years earlier. Creating
a war in Vietnam, escalating tensions in the cold war, in Cuba,
toppling duly elected governments worldwide, spying on their fellow
Americans, — hey, these guys were busy.

A more likely
scenario to the moon landing debate is that this whole question
has surfaced out of what are some very clearly u2018touched up' photos
from those moon landings and from NASA's steadfast refusal to release
the original copies. Did you know that? NASA absolutely refuses
to release the original photos. And here we all thought that u2018we
the people' owned them — silly us.

The truth is
that as an arm of the federal government NASA is and always has
been just another venue for government propaganda and the promotion
of the government line. It is also and always has been a part of
the Defense Department's fantasies and desires, and both the CIA's
and the National Security Agency's spy satellites are supported
by NASA.

Lesser known
and seemingly separate is the fact that NASA is also one of the
personal playthings of the US government (public) school teachers
and college professors. Government school teachers have a symbiotic
relationship with NASA that is not unlike the one they share with
professional sports. They all promote and support each other. Not
surprisingly none of them ever met a government program, law, restriction,
abuse, or tax that they didn't embrace and even adore.

What this all
adds up to of course is that the information that gets released
to the public is only that which serves NASA itself, the supporting
federal agencies and all of those promoting them for their own ends
— like the mainstream news media.

With that in
mind, if you look at some of the photos that NASA has released of
our moon landings objectively you will see some that show the side
of the lunar lander that is in shadow. Even though in the dark the
American flag and the words UNITED STATES are always clearly visible
as if lit. That is impossible. That is clearly an enhancement of
the photos.

It reminds
me of those photos that the USSR used to release showing one of
their air aces stepping out of his plane immediately after shooting
down a half a dozen German Messerschmitts in a horrific air battle.
The good pilots were often shown not in their flying suites covered
with grime, but in full dress uniform, covered with medals and their
entire ground crews all cleaned and pressed and smiling for the
camera. Remember how we used to laugh at such obviously staged photos?

The NASA lunar
landing photos are much the same. I expect that they enhanced them
not because we didn't land on the moon, but just to make sure that
the American flag and THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA was prominently
displayed in every picture. It was simply more propaganda by another
federal agency that specializes in it.

The proper
questions that we should be asking then regarding the Apollo moon
landings are:

did NASA alter or enhance the photos?…"

whose orders did they do that?…"

The trouble
with having those questions asked though is that they might lead
to even more dangerous questions such as:

NASA faked or changed some of the lunar landing photos then what
else has NASA done and lied about?…"

is NASA doing and lying to us about now?…"

Those of course
are questions that the ruling elite simply can not allow to be asked.
That would be to let the toothpaste out of the tube and they know
that it's virtually impossible to get it back inside once released.

NASA is hardly
the squeaky clean "civilian" organization that it has
always been promoted to the public to be by school teachers, the
mainstream media, politicians, et al. It's a lot worse now than
it was during the Apollo program, but so is every other federal

In the final
analysis NASA is made up of just another bunch of political hacks
that do as they're told by their masters. Witness the fact that
they've been involved in promoting the global warming scam up to
their collective necks.

As to the scientific
expertise that the mainstream media is all pushing ad nauseam that
they claim will be lost forever if the taxpayer isn't sufficiently
robbed to pay for their new dig-a-hole-and-fill-it-in NASA job-works-programs:

could not be a successful scientist without realizing that, in
contrast to the popular conception supported by newspapers and
mothers of scientists, a goodly number of scientists are not only
narrow-minded and dull, but also just stupid…" ~ J.D. Watson – The Double Helix

I like to call them "The Flying Post Office."

For truth and
honesty there's no point in looking to NASA. You won't find it there.

That's both
the answer and the question that they don't want us to know…

Just my 2
worth. (That's
in 1913 Pre-Federal Reserve money of course. In 2010 dollars I guess
I should offer up my 44 worth.)
