The Dark Side of the Moon Landings – Global Research

A second concern about human space-flight is the huge cost. The NASA estimate for the whole Apollo programme is over $200 billion in today’s money [5] – for a programme lasting only a decade, and which resulted in just 6 successful Moon landings.

12bytes says: The author of this article is nearsighted to an extreme. The NASA space program may have been the most profitable venture in human history due to the technology transfer to the public sector. Environmental concerns aside, the bulk of products and materials in the modern world have resulted directly, or have benefited from the space program, including adhesives, insulation, plastics, textiles, composites, metals, electronics, medical devices, solar energy, baby diapers and much more and NASA is still at it. While there are indeed major concerns with NASA (Never A Straight Answer) as a body, in no way can it be faulted for its cost.

US “Downs” Legitimacy After Claims of Downing Iranian Drone – Global Research

A look at Andrew Yang, pres. candidate, 2020

Andrew Yang seems to be a popular democratic candidate for the presidency in 2020, second to Tulsi Gabbard. I took a brief look at Andrew and his platform and these are my thoughts…

The number one, most important item to me is war and the influence of the Jewish lobbies (AIPAC) in U.S. politics and culture. The “spreading of democracy” (illegal regime change wars) must stop and AIPAC must be forced to register as the foreign agent it actually is. Andrew however seems to be far more concerned with automation and giving people free money than he is with the destruction of peoples lives through endless war, much less holding those responsible accountable.

Personally i’m largely for automation, especially when replacing human jobs with machines results in people not having to do menial, garbage jobs that cause misery in their lives and don’t enrich the development of our species. Money aside, who wants to work in the greasy McDonald’s kitchen, or sit in a truck for up to 14 hours a day, or pick up stinky trash, or work as a robot in a Nike factory all day? All of these demeaning jobs and many more can be automated, some very easily, however this of course leads to the problem of paying ones bills and so a universal income may be a worthy stop-gap solution along the path to a better society.

Automation is a very real, current problem that must be faced and it must be addressed now, not tomorrow, however automation is far from the most pressing of the problems we face in my opinion as well as from a logic perspective. Millions have had, and are having their lives destroyed as a result of the U.S. empire and its senseless, illegal and immoral regime change wars and other foreign meddling. Millions of civilians have been slaughtered, displaced, or have had their leaders forcibly replaced with corrupt criminals who are sympathetic to U.S. foreign policy and much of this turmoil in the middle east has been influenced by Israel. Why isn’t this problem at the very top of the list for Yang?

I listened to about half of the interview of Yang by Rogan to get a feel for the guy and observe his body language. My impression is that he seems fairly genuine, though he also seemed to intentionally dodge a few questions and Rogan rarely asks any hard questions. Yang spent his time revealing his thoughts on automation, citing a lot of statistics. He stated that he’s a data driven guy and indeed he seems more like a human calculator that a well-rounded human being. I see a huge difference in Yang when i compare him to Tulsi Gabbard who seems to have a genuine interest in serving the interests of the people, which fits with the apparent fact that woman are generally more service-to-others oriented than men.

Looking at Yang’s policies page at yang2020.com, it appears to me to be a laundry list of sweet candy issues that were carefully selected to attract young voters rather than tackling most important issues we face as a country and as a species.

the most prominent item on Yang’s list seems to be the establishment of a universal basic income, followed by Medicare for all. There is barely a mention of the disastrous U.S. foreign policy which is responsible for a large chunk of the mess this country has inflicted upon not only itself, but many other countries over many decades. When asked by Rogan how a universal income would be financed, Yang rattles off yet more statistics and “unpacks” more data and it all sounds good and logical on its face, however he failed to mention that the cost could be completely covered, and then some, by simply eliminating the military-industrial complex.

Yang lists 106 policies on yang2020.com and while many or most of them would be attractive to most people, few are actually important relative to the immense real world problems we face. They’re things that might be nice to have once you get the important stuff out of the way.

End Bidding Wars for Corporate Relocation, Head of Culture and Ceremony, Make Washington, DC, a State, Make Puerto Rico a State, The Penny Makes No Cents, Extend Daylight Saving Time All Year, Support for the Arts, Zoning, Making Taxes Fun, Empowering MMA Fighters, etc..

Empowering MMA fighters and making taxes fun? Are you f’ing kidding me???

Compare Yang’s laundry list of benign and occasionally insulting policies to Gabbard’s policies:

Campaign Finance Reform, Criminal Justice Reform, Environment, Foreign Policy, Glass Steagall/Big Banks, GMO Labeling, Net Neutrality, Regime Change War, Saudi Arabia & Yemen, Sex Trafficking, Syria, etc..

Neither Gabbard nor Yang are particularly knowledgeable regarding various issues such as climate change or the legality of the IRS, but at least Gabbard is sitting at the big peoples table whereas Yang seems to be happy drawing graphs in his sandbox.

As a current major in the Hawaii Army National Guard, Gabbard has been deployed twice to the middle east and has unfortunately witnessed the cost of war firsthand. Yang, on the other hand, has no military experience nor seemingly much of an interest in the most pressing problems we face. In Yang’s Foreign Policy First Principles page, he opens with the following tripe:

While America has undoubtedly made mistakes, we’ve been a positive force in world history, leading to the spread of peace, prosperity, and democracy. Presidents from JFK to Ronald Reagan maintained strong relationships with allies while sending clear and honest messages to those who would work against us.

America has been a “positive force in world history”? This sounds a whole lot like something an establishment shill would say. Where has the U.S. “spread democracy”? When it slaughtered millions of native Americans? In Iraq? Libya? Syria? Venezuela? Iran? Cuba? Japan? Germany? Maybe i hold an incorrect definition of democracy that has been radically altered without my knowing. Maybe bombing wedding parties and journalists and civilians and prosecuting whistleblowers is the new form of democracy.

Government in and of itself is a problem. It will never be a solution, at least not while it resembles anything close to its current form, and in this light neither Gabbard nor Yang nor anyone else are answers to the problems created by government and the deep state. We’re stuck with government for the time being however and, as such, i see Gabbard as the best candidate at this point. She has everything going for her except her anti-regime change war policy which of course the “defense” industry funded legacy media cannot possibly support, so don’t expect to see a lot of her on the boob-tube. She is a ‘she’ for one, and unlike the ugly parasitic psychopathic bitch that is Hillary, Gabbard is a physically attractive one and that by itself just might be enough to sell some of the sex depraved couch potatoes. She’s also a democrat which, given her anti-establishment and anti-war policies, ought to be attractive to an awful lot of democrats who, for some dumb reason, think there’s actually a difference between a democrat and a republican. She’s attractive to a lot of republicans for the same reasons. More than anything else, Gabbard appears to be a genuine human being and people can sense that when she speaks. She can’t speak all of the truth on the trail to the White House (i haven’t heard her say much about Israel for example), but i think she does a pretty good job of speaking the truths she can and the truth is, this country is screwed up to an extreme in every way from education to foreign policy.

I don’t know how much of an impact a Tulsi Gabbard or a Ron Paul could possibly have in a system that is so completely corrupt, dysfunctional and criminal in nature as is the cesspool that is government today, but it’s looking to me like there’s no one else that is both electable and has an interest in taking on the system for the benefit of us all instead of herself.

And that’s my $.02 for what it’s worth.
