Barack Obama’s NASA saves America!

    Sometimes it’s helpful to take a step back and get some perspective in order to be able to evaluate something that is right in front of you today. Sometimes that perspective goes back 40 years sometimes it goes back 40,000 years. When Neal Armstrong stepped on the surface of the Moon in July of 1969 it was the culmination of one of the swiftest periods | Read More »

    Once Upon A Time In Heaven: Commercial Space Takes Off

    <b>Commercial space takes off</b> First off, a much belated congratulations to Elon Musk and the folks at SpaceX for last month’s successful test launch of the Falcon 9 vehicle.  The <a href=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NREJEZ5eluk”>video</a> is as spectacular as the story of a company, that for pennies on the dollar, hbas shown a path to reducing launch costs by a whole order of magnitude.  A month on, and | Read More »

    It’s time once again for Pigs in Space!

    There’s a lot of hand wringing and ink being spilled currently over President Obama’s new realignment of NASA’s goals from space exploration as an example of American exceptionalist ingenuity to subservient babysitter of the delusional Muslim ego and its claims of aiding and advancing civilization. Don’t ask me when mining ancient ruins for architectural elements, ripping off Indian numerical script, plagiarizing the best minds of | Read More »

    NASA: From the Moon to Mecca

    From the “you can’t make this up” file, President Obama is turning NASA into his Muslim-outreach agency. According to Fox News, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden says that NASA’s foremost mission in 2010 is to improve relations with the Muslim world. Pause. Re-read. Pause. Huh? Yes. Re-read again. He went on to say, “[w]hen I became the NASA administrator — or before I became the NASA | Read More »

    Obama: Orbiting Within the Islamic World

    NASA as a bridge for “Sharia in Space” to mollify the anti-American Islamic world? There’s no end to it. Obama continues to insult us while he disarms us and disassembles America. Before he’s through, he will have done more than destroy our marvelous space programs. NASA is dead. And with that goes yet another defining character of America into this leftist’s political waste bin: American | Read More »

    Jihad coming to Mars

    Why don’t we see what is happening?  I fear that many will live to regret their blindness to an enemy that is real and growing. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/07/05/nasa-chief-frontier-better-relations-muslims/

    The President’s Space Policy Will Compromise American Jobs and American World Leadership

    On May 5, 1961, Alan Shepard became the first American in space. Since then, there has been no turning back for the U.S. space program and we have led the world in space exploration ever since. Throughout the next 50 years, NASA would land astronauts on the moon, launch the Hubble space telescope and help build the International Space Station (ISS). However, the President now | Read More »

    Obama Breaks Out the Money. NASA: No purpose in sight.

    The President’s speech was another bag of empty talk and hot air at Spacecoast today.

    Obama Returns Space to its Rightful Owner…

    Jules Verne. More specifically, sheets and sheets of paper. In the late 1970′s I sat around with a couple of NSA (not NASA) officers, both old friends, discussing ways government could “fake” the pursuit of certain mainstay traditions and institutions, especially those the American people had long honored and in which had found its heroes, while clandestinely skinning their budgets to the bones. Carter was | Read More »

    Arbeit Macht … Warm?

    In a single Huffington Post column, NASA’s famous warmist-alarmist Dr. James Hansen invokes Godwin’s Law on climate change, criticizes President Obama for his lack of stalwart leadership in that area, and offers a climate change solution that would also discourage illegal immigration. Seriously. Obama’s Second Chance on the Predominant Moral Issue of This Century The predominant moral issue of the 21st century, almost surely, will | Read More »

    CPAC 2010: Rep Rob Bishop (R, UT-01).

    This CPAC interview with Rep. Rob Bishop (R, UT-01) seemed relevant, given the post that I did earlier on the White House gutting 23K space-reliant jobs in a politically-unreliable Democrat’s Congressional District: Rep. Bishop is active in space issues, and in fact went into greater detail recently about why said gutting is ill-advised. The op-ed is well worth reading, if probably not making an argument | Read More »

    Obama administration kills 23K space-related jobs in Florida.

    So they can spend that money right here on Earth: Revised projections now show that about 23,000 workers at and around Kennedy Space Center will lose their jobs because of the shuttles’ retirement and the new proposal to cancel the development of new rockets and spacecraft. That sum includes 9,000 “direct” space jobs and — conservatively speaking — 14,000 “indirect” jobs at hotels, restaurants, retail | Read More »

    Obama Willfully Ignoring Domestic Islamo-Fascist War On America.

    If the shoe fits, wear it… and Obama is wearing out shoe leather on this one. In an article I wrote on Feb.17 (America’s War on Terror…Obama’s War on America), I said that it was time to ask, “Hey Obama, who’s side are you on?”. Suffice to say, there are a lot more questions about Obama’s motivations than answers. As a Commander-in-Chief, it’s readily apparent | Read More »
