№ 5. Apollo 11 never left low-Earth orbit

Contents hide

PAGE STATUS: I never quite stop working on this page. It is like a hobby for me because I am transfixed by the level of mass mesmerism or hypnotism involved. The Apollo program is the biggest lie in the history of mankind after uniformitarianism (or gradualism). An unexpected and convincing exposure of this lie to a large segment of society would be highly problematic for the bankers. The stakes are very high in that regard, no less so today than half a century ago. Hence, over the past decade or so there has been a massive effort to counter the growing awareness that we never landed on the Moon. This propaganda campaign is ongoing and genuinely scares me because it is as highly coordinated as was the original Apollo program and the general public is completely oblivious to it. It’s like Déjà vu. The whole thing makes me feel like I’m from a different planet. I don’t want to make too much out of it, but right when I thought this page was nearing completion, a donor sent me a link to an article on The Unz Review website entitled The Moon Landings: A Giant Hoax for Mankind? An introduction to the mother of all conspiracy theories anonymously written on April 1, 2019. I am indebted to that writer. Finally, this page is so named based on the fairly safe assumption that if the Apollo 11 Mission was staged, so were all of the other Apollo missions that claimed to leave low-Earth orbit.

NASA’s Lunar Exploration Program Overview, September 2020, Appendix 7: The Artemis Accords, page 72

In Greek mythology, Artemis is the twin sister of Apollo


Madam, I swear I use no art at all. That he is mad, ’tis true. Tis true, ’tis pity, And pity ’tis ’tis true—a foolish figure, But farewell it, for I will use no art. Mad let us grant him then. And now remains

—William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act 2 Scene 2

A very real propaganda campaign

For the better part of a decade now, unbeknownst to the American public, there has been a propaganda campaign of staggering proportions to counteract the increasing awareness that the Apollo moon landings not only were faked, but were technically impossible then and now. In this theatre of the absurd, all the promises of “returning” to the moon or landing on Mars are empty. The progeny of Jove know we will not be here in the promised timeframe, which interestingly enough is 2024.

With the Artemis program, NASA will land the first woman and next man on the Moon by 2024, using innovative technologies to explore more of the lunar surface than ever before. We will collaborate with our commercial and international partners and establish sustainable exploration by the end of the decade. Then, we will use what we learn on and around the Moon to take the next giant leap – sending astronauts to Mars.


The dimensions of this campaign and the raw force it exerts on public opinion are as close as I will ever come to living under a communist regime. Anyone who follows my work and understands and believes what is said in the remainder of this page should take this as sure evidence that January 1, 2025, never happens.

NASA is promising something
it knows it cannot deliver.

This is merely part of the propaganda campaign to silence the rising tide of voices questioning whether or not we really landed on the moon. Part of this propaganda campaign is a copyrights violation attack on some exceptionally well done YouTube documentaries, silencing the voices of reason. I shall forever lament the loss of the original Shill Stompers channel and videos such as the one about the Lunar Excursion Module (LEM) and Moon Hoax; “What’s Up With Apollo 13?”. They were so exceptionally well done as to leave the watchers feeling stupid for ever having thought we landed on the moon. There is a new Shill Stompers YouTube channel. One assumes it is the same people, but as of this writing, there are 462 videos on that channel. I do not have the time to vet all of them for my readers.

Understanding that the Apollo program was a hoax is infinitely more important than you could possibly imagine. Just because I tell you Artemis is a sure indication that the coming Earth crustal displacement will occur sometime before January 1, 2025 doesn’t mean you will believe me even if you think something is about to happen, even if you can hear the ancients screaming at us. You must first not only convince yourself that the suggestion that we landed on the Moon in the late 1960s is ludicrous, but you must be sure in your own mind that we do not possess the technology to do it today. Only then will you begin to wrap yourself around the implications of NASA saying they are going to return to the Moon in 2024.

This section is heavily indebted to The Moon Landings: A Giant Hoax for Mankind?: An introduction to the mother of all conspiracy theories on The Unz Review website, and to Karl in New Zealand for sending me a link to that article, which also alerted me to the need to completely rewrite my section on the so-called Moon rocks. Educate yourself. Buy and read these books. Or read all of the NASA “conspiracy theorist” propaganda on the Internet. The choice is always yours. Only you can make yourself wake up from the dream. Karl sent me something else I want to share with you. Here is an excerpt from an email he sent me.

…On a less dramatic scale – one of my favourites – research pointed out that people living near water dams get more and more concerned with the consequences of a potential dam failure as they live closer by… up to a point. After that – bliss! Not a bit less worry, but zero. Why is that? The mind can’t cope facing the consequences of certain death day in, day out. Everyone who understands has moved out, the ones remaining have either never wondered, or their minds are protecting their normal everyday lives.

So how close do you live to the dam?

Original cover of 1976 We Never Went to The Moon by Bill Kaysing, If you can even find a copy of this book, be prepared to pay a pretty penny for it.

BILL KAYSING: Of course, Bill Kaysing’s in his We Never Went to the Moon: America’s Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle self-published in 1976 (the year I graduated from Annandale High School in Annandale, Virginia) started it all. Google books has an eBook copy. The 1978 movie Capricorn One was based on this book. It is about a Mars landing the was actually filmed in a studio. I discuss the book in the section entitled Bill Kaysing (a nice pedigree) below. Bill Kaysing is something of a celebrity for being the first person to expose the staged Moon landings. He is featured in a number of videos. He is possibly the most educated of all the early “conspiracy theorists” and worked at the company that maunfactured the rocket engines used in the Apollo program.

RALPH RENÉ: NASA Mooned America! – How We Never Went to the Moon, and Why self-published in 1992. Self-taught, Ralph René is featured in the historically very important Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on the Moon? video listed in the next section. It was a small group of men who lead the way in exposing the truth about the Apollo program.

MARY D. BENNETT and DAVID S. PERCY: Dark Moon : Apollo and the Whistle-Blowers published in 1999. This book inspired a rather long 3:41:49 hour movie. See What Happened On the Moon?: An Investigation Into Apollo (2000) in the next section.

GERHARD WISNEWSKI: One Small Step? : The Great Moon Hoax and the Race to Dominate Earth from Space published in 2008. Google has an eBook copy.

The anonymous Unz.com author had this to say about this book:

There are very few books available on the subject. I am not aware of a more researched one than One Small Step? The Great Moon Hoax and the Race to Dominate Earth From Space by German researcher Gerhard Wisnewski, originally published in 2005, from which I will quote repeatedly.

This is a serious movie production with a runtime of 3:41:49. It is available for watch on Amazon Prime (but not Netflix). It is also available for sale as a 2 DVD Special Edition. As can be seen in the following still from the credits at the end of the movie, the book Dark Moon : Apollo and the Whistle-Blowers (1999) and the movie What Happened On the Moon?: An Investigation Into Apollo (2000) are very closely related. This movie was made for an intelligent audience, not “conspiracyt theorists.” Testimony is offered by credible individuals. The commentator Ronnie Stronge is very professional. 

Video coming…

I am working on making a high quality verson of this movie. Until then, here is the work of someone else on YouTube. They split the film into two, but have since privatized the first half. Fortunately, I had alread made a copy. This work belongs to the people. To deprive them of even the opportunity to hear the truth and wake up from the awefull sleep that blinds them to the coming Earth crustal displacement is criminal.

This is a very popular YouTube video, as good as any documentary you will find anywhere. So when Wikipedia makes derogatory “conspiracy theorist” comments such as the one below, they only confirm what I have known for a very long time now, which is that, at the highest level, they are directly controlled by the progeny of Jove exactly the same as mainstream media.

This Bart Sibrel YouTube was originally released as a full-fledged movie and has its own Wikipedia page.   Bart Sibrel is an American conspiracy theorist who has written, produced, and directed works in support of the false belief that the Apollo moon landings between 1969 and 1972 were staged by NASA under the control of the CIA.

Wikipedia, Bart Sibrel

And yet this is precisely what happened…

“The moon landing were staged by
NASA under the control of the CIA”

To this, I would add only that they were directed by Stanley Kubrick.

Bart Sibrel is the guy who went around challenging NASA astronauts to swear on the Bible, in front of the camera, that they did walk on the moon and used this footage, some of which is irreplaceable–an Apollo astronaut who knows nothing about the Van Allen belts–to produce Astronauts Gone Wild. It includes Neil Armstrong, who in his frustration with life and having convinced himself he really did land on the Moon, famously punched Bart Sibrel in the face. Why are all these guys so upset if Bart is just some lunatic “conspiracy theorist”? I don’t think you need to be a phycologist to answer that question.

Conspiracy Theory: Did we land on the moon? (2001) directed by John Moffet for Fox TV

SECTION STATUS: Added August 25, 2021. Complete.
SECTION LAST UPDATE: August 25, 2021

For reasons explained in the previous section, copies of this Fox TV Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on the Moon? episode are getting harder and harder to find. I reassembled this one from a YouTube channel that had split the episode into five parts. It was the only copy I could find. This video is not available on either Amazon Prime or Netflix. It is nowhere to be found. Why? Because not only is it the best introduction to the subject, but it was made for Fox TV, which gives it an aura of credibility. I would note also that because of its age, it may be the only remaining source for one of Stanley Kubrick’s waving flags on the lunar surface. This is a subject discussed at length in 2001: A Space Odyssey below. For that reason alone, preserrving this video is of immense historical importance.

Here I must make a confession. Before watching this video, as discussed at the bottom of the 2001: A Space Odyssey section, I thought I was the first to notice the shoe prints in proximity to the LEM only hours after it landed riding atop a 10,500 lbs rocket engine. I was really looking forward to bragging rights because this invalidates almost every photograph as well as the film from all of the Apollo missions to the lunar surface. And no one can or ever will attempt to “debunk” this smoking gun. No one. Ever. As God is my witness, none of those debunker schmucks will ever touch this one. They look for weaknesses and cherry pick their arguments. But at last, Bill Kaysing talks about this incontrovertible evidence in the above video. I really like this guy. He’s smart.

No Stars: What madness is this?

I named this page, “Apollo 11 never left low-Earth orbit,” but if that is the case, it is safe to say mankind has never left low-Earth orbit. In other words, we never landed on the Moon. Rather than arguing mechanical technicalities, I base this claim on a BBC interview with Neil Armstrong and a video of the Apollo 11 Post Flight Press Conference on September 16, 1969. This evidence is straightforward, non-technical, and not subject to interpretation.

I am not talking about cameras, photographs, or film. This evidence is based on naked-eye observation of the night sky as recorded by the Apollo 11 astronauts in mp3 recordings and transcripts downloaded from NASA. And I provide the download links so you can verify everything I say.
Even dressed in this NASA clown suit, Edgar Mitchell looks like a Ћinker

Science and the Inner Experience by Edgar Mitchell

SECTION STATUS: Added September 3, 2021. First draft.
SECTION LAST UPDATE: September 3, 2021

I have not studied this recording in detail. In fact, I’ve only listened to the first 13:13 minutes of the recording. Stopping at 13:13 was not arbitrary on my behalf. There are ten seconds of 2001: A Space Odyssey-like silence after the opening 13:13 minutes. Talking resumes at 13:23 minutes. If you are finding any of these numbers interesting, the original recording—which you can purchase at BetterListen! (itself an interesting name)—is one hour and 43 minutes, and a 54 MB file. The last thing he says in the first 13:13 minutes of the recording is “and see if you experience it as I did.” Here I would very strongly suggest to you that he is referring to his comments about the stars. This whole thing reminds me of the 22:43 minute MouseVinyl.com recording discussed on page № 22. Tomorrowland cometh.

Please note that this uploaded copy of the first 13:13 minutes of the recording is one second longer than the original, a fact which I cannot correct given the software I use.

Edgar Dean Mitchell (September 17, 1930 – February 4, 2016) was a United States Navy officer and aviator, test pilot, aeronautical engineer, ufologist and NASA astronaut. As the Lunar Module Pilot of Apollo 14, he spent nine hours working on the lunar surface in the Fra Mauro Highlands region, making him the sixth person to walk on the Moon.

BetterListen.com, Science and the Inner Experience by Edgar Mitchell

Listen carefully to everything this man is saying. I am no little convinced that he is a Ћinker. Whether this be true or not, he most certainly is aware of Neil Armstrong’s cislunar comment discussed in the next section. After reading that section, there is only one of two positions you must take. Either you are fighting against waking up and think me a “conspiracy theorist” or you are beginning to wake up. If the former, you will doubtless think I am making too much of the comment. I am not. It is the very reason why he never gave another interview until he was a much older man. I can assure you all twelve of the astronauts who participated in the staged Moon landing were aware of this BBC interview, including Edgar Mitchell. I propose to you that he is using the same “No Stars: What madness is this?” argument to tell you the truth himself.

But whatever the case may be, what we have here is a stark contradiction of the cislunar comments and the remarks made at the Apollo 11 post-flight press interview which when combined would mean that the Apollo 11 crew never saw any stars from the time they took off until they landed back on Earth. Now that is batshit crazy, not me. And as proof of everything I am saying, I invite you to listen to this recording. But when you do, try to imagine that Edgar Mitchel is speaking over the heads of most of his listeners to the select few who know that what he is really saying is that the Apollo program was all a big lie. And the mechanism he is using to do that is his memory of seeing the stars from low-Earth orbit.

Billions and billions

Which is it? “Deep black” (Neil Armstrong, Apollo 1) or “billions and billions of such points of light” (Edgar Mitchel, Apollo 14). You cannot have it both ways.

The duration of this segment on the original recording is precisely 13 minutes and 13 seconds, the same 13 13 (or MM) discussed at length on the Georgia Guidestones page.

My initial reason for obtaining a copy of this recording is what he says in this “visualization” starting at 10:47 minutes into the recording.

“And set in the background billions and billions of points of light. Far more so, ten times more, than we can possibly see from the surface of the Earth, representing stars, galaxies, galactic clusters. Billions and billions of such points of light.”

I strongly suggest you download the original and listen to the whole thing. Now compare what astronaut Edgar Mitchell had to say against the following excerpt from the Bill Kaysing interview at the bottom of the section entitled Bill Kaysing (a nice pedigree) below.

Cislunar space is not “deep black”

When I say most people are living in a hypnotic state, I am not exaggerating. What induces this hypnotic state is repetition. You are told over and over again what to think and believe, by so-called scientists, academia, and mainstream media ad nauseam until you stop thinking for yourself, stop questioning. This begins in youth and continues throughout your entire lifetime. It is ceaseless. Right now, right this very moment, I am engaging a part of you in a very deep hypnotic state, one as aggressive as thoughts about what happened in New York City on September, 11, 2001. In so doing, I am walking into a trap. I do so willingly. I know too much to let pride get in my way. Suppose I told you that way out in the country far away from city lights the stars at night are much brighter. Would you believe me? Yes, I think you would. And if I asked you why astronomical observatories are located on mountain tops, I am sure that you could provide me with a reasonable answer.

The higher you go at night,
the clearer are the stars.

Isn’t this why the Hubble space telescope was launched into low-Earth orbit? The International Space Station (ISS) is in low Earth orbit also. Did you know there are windows in the ISS?

There are several windows throughout the ISS, including the Lab nadir window (WORF), the seven windows in the cupola, the window in the Japanese Kibo module, thirteen windows in the Russian Service Module, two in the Russian docking module, and a window in each Soyuz.

Awesome! I bet the astronauts spend hours just gazing at the stars and thinking how special they are to be on the International Space Station.

Now I want to show you something that should startle you.
If you are one of the billions of true believers and think Neil Armstrong really did walk on the Moon, this should give you pause. This clip is from a little-known 1970 interview. The entire interview can be seen in The Three Neil Armstrong Interviews section below.
What you have just seen is the reason why Neil Armstrong never gave another interview until late in his life. As his own children attest, he was not reclusive. The reprimand he received for this inane cislunar remark must have been fearful, and no doubt played a part in his highly intelligent wife leaving him. NASA put a stop to his interviews after this potentially disastrous cislunar comment. And that my friends, I am proud to say, is something you will only learn on An Apocalyptic Synthesis. Keep reading. There are more surprises to follow.

He risked exposing the entire Apollo Program as the biggest hoax ever perpetrated in the history of mankind, unsurpassed even by the events in New York City on September 11, 2001.

Their goal is to “Recover American leadership in space by creating a cislunar space transportation system,” and their strategy is “Incremental, cumulative steps outward from low Earth orbit with people and machines.”

Cislunar space

Earth’s gravity keeps the Moon in orbit at an average distance of 384,403 km (238,857 mi). The region outside Earth’s atmosphere and extending out to just beyond the Moon’s orbit, including the Lagrangian points, is sometimes referred to as cislunar space.

Wikipedia, Outer space

Cis is the Latin preposition for “on this side of.” Cislunar space by definition includes the low-Earth orbit (LEO) of the Hubble space telescope and International Space Station. So now that we are clear on the definition of cislunar space, let us revisit what the young Neil Armstrong had to say about cislunar space in the first and last interview ever recorded of him until late in his life.

Famous Last (interview in his youth) Words
“The sky is deep black when viewed from the Moon, as it is when viewed from cislunar space, the space between the earth and the moon.”

The Apollo 11 post-flight press conference on September 16, 1969

SECTION STATUS: I had to stop working on this section in order to recover from a major formatting fiasco that affected the entire website. I will return to finish it as soon as possible.
: December 9, 2020

Before the 1970 interview discussed in the previous section, there was the Apollo 11 Post Flight Press Conference on September 16, 1969. The entire press conference interview can be watched at the bottom of this section.

Neil Armstrong: We were never able to see stars from the lunar surface during the televised Apollo 11 Post Flight Press Conference, 16 September 1969

Transcript at The First Lunar Landing, Part VI, history.nasa.gov or just watch the interview for yourself…

NASA has two cameras filming the press conference. Here is the same scene from both camera perspectives.

First Camera
I don’t recall

What madness is this? Wake up people! If you just got back from the Moon and could not see any stars on the way there and while on the Moon,—the entire mission—do you think you would have to try to remember something so astounding? No! You would be dumbfounded. It would be the first thing out of your mouth every time you spoke. And you would be sayiong something like, “Man space is scary. There are no stars. It’s like some alternative reality. There’s nothing but darkenss everywhere.” My God people, I beg of you, wake up! “I don’t recall” all by itself should end the debate. These men did not travel through cislunar space and they were never on the Moon. Now watch this madness again from the other camera perspective.

Second Camera

Look at these men’s hands. Watch the second video again. Focus on their hands. These are three good men being told to lie in front of the entire world. It’s torture for them.My God, that is Michael Collins to the right of Neil Armstrong. He supposedly flew the Apollo 11 command module Columbia around the Moon 30 times. Let me say this again for emphasis.

A poser if ever I saw one. I’ve taken to calling these clown suits because that’s what they are. I’m sorry if you don’t want to wake up, but that doesn’t mean I have to live in your world of illusions.
Michael Collins orbited the Moon 30 times.

So when he says he “doesn’t recall” seeing any stars, he’s not talking about being on the surface of the Moon. Are you listening to what I am saying? He was on the dark side of the Moon 30 times, where all pretense of not being able to see the stars goes “out the window” shall we say. And the best he can muster at a post-flight press conference is “I don’t recall seeing any.” I need a debunker. Help! Wait, wait, on no, I feel it coming.

At no other time during either the initial presentation or any of the other questions and answers are all three astronauts as nervous and fidgety as they are in the immediate aftermath of this question being asked. What you are seeing here is extreme and a sure sign that both NASA and the astronauts are fully aware that there is a huge risk of exposure is answering such a question.

Isaiah 29:15
Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?

Luke 12:2
For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.

These are not shy or bashful men. They are obviously ashamed of something.

History has made it abundantly clear that the astronauts were not sufficiently practiced in answering such questions. Here is an image of the NASA page where these videos were downloaded. You can click on it if you want to download the videos for yourself.

And here are the two download files on my harddrive.

As you can see there are two files. These two video files are totally weird. I will refer to them as the “N” and “Q” files. There are flashes and white screen accompanied by beeps throughout both of them in which there appears to be a discontinuity in the filming, suggesting perhaps they have been improperly edited. The “N” file shows the entire interview and then it starts over at 57:04 minutes. Why? I have no idea.

and is is somewhat odd because the second, smaller “Q” video file is more or less a duplicate of the first file. They can be synced at 12:44 into the first “N” video and 00:12 into the second “Q” video, which means anytime between 12:44 and 57:04 in “N” you can subtract 12:30 from “N” to find approximately the same location in “Q”. This is an imperfect process because of minor differences between the two videos. I note all important sync times below. I am pretty sure there is nothing in the shorter “Q” video that is not also in “N.”

add . This makes the first video mreo complete and the one used on this website. Please note that there are precisely 09:10 minutes at the end of this video, which gives (2:28:42 – 09:10 =) 2:19:32 usable video.

  • FILM QUALITY: “N” is of distinctly better quality than “Q” because of the camera positioning. Camera “N” is much closer to both the astronauts and the audience than camber “Q.” For the same reason, the sound quality in “N” is distinctly better.
  • QUESTIONS & ANSWERS CAMERA PERSPECTIVE: One very substantial difference is the camera perspective during questions and answers. Sometimes but not always (mostly towards the beginning of the questions and answers period) camera “N” focuses on the journalist asking the question and sometimes remains on the audience while the astronauts answer. The perspective of camera “Q” never changes. It is always focused on the astronauts, even while the questions are being asked.
  • MISSING SEGMENTS: It should also be noted that for some unknown reason, the questions and answers period in the longer “N” video has been heavily edited and is missing little segments everywhere. It is comparatively very choppy at times compared to the shorter video “Q.”
  • INITIAL SYNC POINT: 12:44 in “N” and 00:12 in “Q”

The three Neil Armstrong interviews

For the sake of completeness, here are all three of the Neil Armstrong interviews.

Neil Armstrong talks to Patrick Moore, The Sky at Night, BBC 1970

The moon landing at 50: Neil Armstrong in his own words from the 60 Minutes YouTube channel

Interview with Alex Malley, CEO of Certified Practicing Accountants (CPA) of Australia. As of this writing, I cannot determine an exact date for these interviews. Some sources suggest the interview was recorded in 2011, but it apparently was not posted on the CPA Australia website until May of 2012. They are no longer available on that website. See Small step for a man, great get for accountants for an article posted at the time. Neil Armstrong died on August 25, 2012. This is the last recorded interview with him before his death. This section is included for the sake of completeness. I find nothing of interest in this interview.

A final farewell to Neil Armstrong from the CBS News YouTube channel.

Oh the madness!

He was not a “private man.” He was sequestered for the duration of his life because of the cislunar comment. It was a sad and miserable life full of deception and eventually cost him his wife.

Ensign Neil Armstrong on May 23, 1952 (Credit Wikipedia)
The hoaxster

Listen carefully to me now! Making you feel sympathetic for this hoaxster is a major part of the current propaganda war to ward off any possibility of a public outcry about the Apollo program immediately before the coming planetary catastrophe. He is what Bart Sibrel accused him of being, a liar and a coward. He wanted the fame. Developing a consciousness late in life doesn’t excuse what he did. The only real Apollo hero was the “first man” to tell us what was really happening. His name was Virgil “Gus” Grissom and they killed him.

Gus was a Freemason. He was a Master Mason of Mitchell Lodge No. 228 of Mitchell, Indiana.

Neil Armstrong could have at any time said, “It didn’t happen.” Instead he chose to tell himself that it was in the best interest of the country to not tell the truth. I struggle with the thought of not feeling any compassion for him, but I’ve spent my whole life trying to be the most honest person I could be. He cared more for self-aggrandizement than he did the truth. That is a human frailty for which I do indeed have very little sympathy because it is shared in common with so many people who claim to be Christian leaders of thought. Did you know that he hid from the public eye for years? Listen to this except from the Bart Sibrel interview featured in the section entitled The “gem” from A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon below.

The numerical evidence that Neil Armstrong was murdered by the bankers

SECTION STATUS: Need to proofread. Otherwise finished.
SECTION LAST UPDATE: August 23, 2021

As noted on my homepage, 2013 was the year preparation for the end-time began in earnest. Given the “poster boy” character of the man, the bankers could not risk Neil Armstrong developing a consciousness on his deathbed. He was a loose end, and 2012 was the year to make sure this idiot did not make any more cislunar comments. Their poster boy landed on the Moon on July 20, 1969. He died on an operating table 43 years later on August 25, 2012. Was his death in anyway suspicious? A CNN article on the six million dollar wrongful death payment to his family includes the following statement.

The newspaper reported that it received mail from an unknown source with 93 pages of documents outlining Armstrong’s treatment and the resulting legal case surrounding it. Included in those documents were reports from medical experts on both sides and correspondence between attorneys for the hospital and Armstrong’s family, the newspaper said.

CNN, Neil Armstrong’s family was paid $6 million by a hospital in a wrongful death settlement, New York Times reports by Rebekah Riess and Hollie Silverman

The meaning of 43 is discussed on my homepage. It is a numerical signature of the bankers that harkens back to the Knights Templar. Armstrong clearly presented a threat as can be seen in the following clip from the 25th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission in 1994. He started the speech by saying, “Wilbur Wright noted that the only bird that could talk was the parrot, and he didn’t fly very well. So I’ll be brief.” Parrots are told what to say, and the “he didn’t fly very well” is a thinly veiled confession that he didn’t walk on the Moon. Letting this guy live to make a deathbed confession was never going to happen.

Here it is interesting to note that Neil Armstrong and Major General Albert Stubblebine were both born in 1930 and suffered the same fate—an unexpected death on the operating table. I would suggest to you that the bankers murdered both of them. Does that mean they are evil? I say this over and over again. You must truly put yourself in their shoes. Neil Armstrong was a threat to their mission to save mankind from rebooting as cavemen. His one life compared to the future of all mankind is expendable. That’s just a cold, hard fact. Major General Albert Stubblebine had to die for the same reason. People on the inside had to be warned of the cost of breaking ranks. The Moon landing hoax and 9/11 cannot be exposed this late in the game. In the end time, as even the Nazarene said, normality is the order of the day. Either that, or all of this stuff is just in my head because I’m batshit crazy.

“The moon landing were staged by
NASA under the control of the CIA”

To this, I would add only that they were directed by Stanley Kubrick.

Janet Shearon Armstrong

Neil Armstrong was special among the Apollo astronauts. He was their poster boy, but for the very same reason he was chosen to play this role, he lacked the requisite sophistry and mental acuity to maintain such an elaborate lie. His boyish nature is clear in the way he defines cislunar space to his audience in the interview video at the top of this page. This was not a sophisticated man.

But the astronauts were not the only ones whose souls were tortured maintaining this monstrous lie. Their wives knew the truth, and they knew what it was doing to their husbands. It changed them in a way I suspect they deeply resented.

This is Neil Armstrong’s former wife, Janet Armstrong, doing what I can only instinctively characterize as flipping the bird to the men who destroyed her husband’s life. It is an act of brazen defiance, and I admire her for it.

Original cover of 1976 We Never Went to the Moon: America’s Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle by Bill Kaysing

Bill Kaysing (a nice pedigree)

Bill Kaysing was surprisingly ahead of his time when he self-published We Never Went to the Moon: America’s Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle in 1976, an original copy of which cannot be had at any price. This was a respectable man. According to Wikipedia, “Kaysing served in the United States Navy during World War II as a midshipman, and later attended Navy Officers Training School, and the University of Southern California. He went on, after the war, to receive a B.A. in English literature, in 1949, from the University of Redlands.” The article goes on to say “his writing career involved publishing on a variety of subjects. Kaysing then found work as a technical writer at Rocketdynes jet propulsion laboratory, a division of North American Aviation, in 1956, in the period prior to the development of the Apollo missions. In September 1956, he became a service analyst there, in 1958 a service engineer, and in 1962 a publications analyst. From 1956 to 1963 Kaysing served as head of technical publications for Rocketdyne.” Rocketdyne developed the F-1 engine used in the Saturn V rocket (the main launch vehicle of the Apollo program). He died April 21, 2005, but to this very day there is a Bill Kaysing tribute website

The “debunkers” cherry pick their arguments, and they have hundreds to pick from. Their favorite is clearly the waving flags, but they love this one, too. Depending on who is speaking, the astronaut is so well lit in the shadow of the LEM because sunlight is reflecting either off the sand or another astronaut standing nearby. NASA is taking the position that if they can disprove one or two of the hundreds of arguments against any of the Apollo missions ever having left low-Earth orbit, then the overwhelming majority of the public will assume the “conspiracy theorists” are wrong about everything. It is the mindset of a propagandist, and it works, at least in the United States.

Did the Apollo astronauts land on the Moon?

The short answer is no. But this subject is now more about American culture than it is about science. Until September 11, 2001, there was nothing even remotely comparable to this deception. It is unquestionably the biggest and boldest lie in the history of mankind, which is why it is so hard for the average person to question. As Wikipedia says on their Big lie page, “The expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, about the use of a lie so ‘colossal’ that no one would believe that someone ‘could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.’”

The truth is that mankind has never left low-earth orbit, which is to say mankind has never passed through the deadly Van Allen radiation belts. Yet the Apollo Program claims to have done so nine times (18 times if you count coming and going) and to have landed on the Moon seven of those times. This is ludicrous for any thinking individual. Over half a century later, the technology for a human being to survive a passage through the deadly Van Allen radiation belts still does not exist. 

Mankind has never left low-earth orbit. Yet the Apollo Programs claims to have done so nine times (18 times if you count coming and going) and to have landed on the Moon seven of those times. Any thinking individual who applies him or herself to the study of this subject can readily ascertain that not only is this a bald-faced lie, but a human being surviving passage through the deadly Van Allen radiation belts is a technical feat we are incapable of achieving to this very day.

There is way too much evidence against that veracity of the Apollo Moon landings to present all of it. I take a different approach on this webpage by focusing on just two of the many technical impossibilities of the Moon landings: surviving the Van Allen belts and transmitting live television signals from the Moon using the technology available in  1969. But honestly, the inexplicably odd behavior of Neil Armstrong during the Apollo 11 Post Flight Press Conference and throughout the remainder of his life speaks volumes. To bear such a burden for king and country is truly beyond the call of duty. Should we admire and praise him for his willingness to maintain this lie for more than 43 years? When I ask myself this question, I think of Janet Shearon, who divorsed him after 38 years of marriage. 

Since originally writing this page, I have added a third favorite of mine, which is the absence of a crater underneath what was originally designated the Lunar Excursion Module (LEM), but which is now referred to as simply the Apollo Lunar Module. I added this for two reasons. The first is that it does not require a lot of technical background to understand. The other reason is that it amuses me how all the worldly-wise “debunkers” avoid this discussion altogether because there is no possible explanation. None. 

Coronal mass ejection (CME). In our arrogance, we imagine our nuclea arsenal to be an awesome force. It is not.

The Van Allen radiation belts

The sunspot count was over a hundred. Even if we had the technology to keep the astronauts alive as they pass through the Van Allen belts, we would have waited. The situation is completely analogous to charging a machine gun in battle. You wait until the enemy is reloading.

Only a handful of people ever mention the fact that attempting to go to the moon at the height of the Solar Cycle 20 maximum would have been suicidal. No sane human being would have even tried this.
The Apollo Program claims to have passed through the Van Allen radiation belts at the height of the Solar Cycle 20 maximum. This makes no sense.

No sane person would even attempt to do this, especially because Solar Cycle 19 saw levels of solar activity not seen in over 10,000 years. I know because it peaked the month before I was born in 1958.

10,000 year sunspot record

As shown in the following graph, the sunspot count when “first man” landed on the moon was over 100. It’s difficult to think of a proper analogy for what this means, but charging directly into machine gun fire comes readily to mind. Seriously. This is no exageration. It would have been suicide.

Solar Cycle 20 sunspot record. Apollo 11 landed on the moon (or so we are told) on July 24, 1969

The “gem” from A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon

SECTION STATUS: Added September 4, 2021. First draft.
SECTION LAST UPDATE: September 4, 2021

This is a clip from the A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon, one I think should not be so buried towards the end of that film. What it meant to Bart Sibrel who produced that film was twofold. First he interpreted it as proof that NASA felt obligated to create this “half way to the Moon” scene in order to emphasize they were able to somehow get through the Van Allen belts. But more personally for him, having this tape in his possession was for him the final proof that NASA has never gone to the Moon and staged everything the public saw on television. I think it is safe to say it changed his life and made him the man we all know.

Bart Sibrel interview

But before we watch this excerpt from A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon, it is very important to watch this clip from a Bart Sibrel interview on the Bart Sibrel YouTube channel. In it, he talks at length about this unedited NASA footage he thinks was mistakenly sent to him. I doubt very seriously that it was a mistake. It is much more likely that someone inside NASA wanted the truth to get out and risked their life sending him this reel.

But you must listen very carefully to what he is saying in this interview versus what is said in A Funny thing Happened on the Way to the Moon. Since producing the movie, he has realized that Neil Armstrong was not prompted to “Talk!” because he was distracted. The job of the man prompting him to talk is to allow for the four second delay in the recording that would be expected were they in fact half way to the Moon instead of in low-Earth orbit. The prompt would normally have been edited out of the tape, but this tape is unedited.

And without further ado, here is the excerpt from A Funny thing Happened on the Way to the Moon that changed Bart Sibril’s life forever. He’s been a man on a mission himself ever since. It’s one thing for someone like me to assemble the work of others so as to provide the best possible portal for anyone willing to take the red pill and awake from the dream, but I admire this fellow.

SECTION LAST UPDATE: September 9, 2021

The South Atlantic Anomaly is seldom discussed in the context of the Apollo program. It should be. The claim is that Apollo missions 8, 11-17 (eight missions total) flew through the Van Allen belts twice. The is 16 flights through the Van Allen belts without incident. In fact, thanks to the work of Bart Sibrel, we know of at least one of the astronauts did not even know of the threat presented by the Van Allen radiation belts.

Impossible TV transmissions

The television images from the moon were not real. They were not real. Period. This is seldom discussed, but the size and weight of the batteries necessary to broadcast from the moon alone preclude any possibility whatsoever of live broadcasts from the moon. You will never hear this “debunked.” Never.

I read a so-called “debunker”—a disgusting intellect by any measure—attack a very thoughtful person for referring to the Lunar Excursion Module (LEM). He very astutely pointed out that the correct name is Apollo Lunar Module (nowadays most often written as lunar module without capitalization). I’ve used LEM ever since. That was the original name back when all this was happening. First compare the two propulsion systems in the LEM, the Ascent Propulsion System (APS) and the Descent Propulsion system (DPS). It is important to understand that threwere two propulsion systems and the DPS was considerably larger and more powerful than the APS.

At 10,500 lbs of thrust, the DPS is three times more powerful than the APS. Now watch this clip from What Happened on the Moon, Part 2 very carefully.

Brownouts & shoe prints

In the Apollo 11 post-flight press conference, one of the astronauts speaks of “flying helicopter-like to the surface.” That comment reminded me of the helicopter brownouts in Afganistan. What is a brownout?

Helicopter brownout is a dangerous phenomena experienced by many helicopters when making landing approaches in dusty environments, whereby sand or dust particles become swept up in the rotor outwash and obscure the pilot’s vision of the terrain. This is particularly dangerous because the pilot needs those visual cues from their surroundings in order to make a safe landing. Helicopter brownout is a $100 Million per year problem for the U.S. Military in Afghanistan and Iraq and the Army cites brownout in three out of every four helicopter accidents there.

So first let’s review the landing and takeoff of the LEM. Remember from above that the descent engine is much more powerful than the ascent engine. They are not the same. Pay particular attention to the “Wisps of dust are blown from Little West Crater” at 01:00 minute into the clip and the “Picking up some dust” comment immediately before landing. This is ludicrous.

But I’ll tell you what is even more absurd,—something no one has ever pointer out,—is pictures like these downloaded from https://mobile.arc.nasa.gov/public/iexplore/missions/pages/133.htm#Apollo11. Such pictures exist for all of the Apollo missions. Now in the context of this section and everything you just learned, can you tell me what is worng with these pictures? Seriously, don’t read ahead. See it for yourself. Experience the quickening.

I didn’t change the file names. I didn’t change the captions. I didn’t even compress these images. This is exactly what I downloaded. But there are hundreds of such images for all of the Apollo missions that supposedly landed on the Moon, not to mention all the film taken of the exact same thing. Can you see what is wrong? The shoe prints. Where did the dust come from?

There shouldn’t be dust or small rocks anywhere near the LEM.

Yet there it is an inch or two deep after a 10,500 lbs thrust rocket engine touched down a few feet away only hours before. Now that’s batshit crazy. And the “debunking” of the no crater objection only makes it worse by saying there is solid rock under the dust. It should have all blown away at landing for half a football field at least. Now you don’t have to be super intelligent to wrap yourself around what I just said. So if after reading that you still think we went to the Moon, you are hypnotized my friend. There is no other word for it. This is why I don’t like parading all the reasons why this staged Moon landing was a travesty. It’s been done a hundred times already. The issue is more profoud than that. The American people have been lulled asleep in advance of the coming palentary catastrophe and believe whatever they are told on TV, just like Stanley Kubrick says at the start of the Shining. That is the issue, not the facts surropunding the Apollo program. Let’s be frank; at the risk of eternal damnation, only an idiot would believe we went to the Moon in the late 1960s.


Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. But what does it matter? Only you can be bold enough to awake from your dream. No one can do it for you. There are any one of a hundred things about the staged landings on the Moon that all by themselves are proof that the Apollo program was a hoax, including these pictures. But only if you are ready to step out of the comfort of believing that no one would ever attempt lying to the entire world about something on such a grand scale. Why bother? Why take the red pill? Because they are saying they’re going to do it again. And this is one of the ways we know the Earth crustal displacement, the “day of the Lord,” the apocolypse or whatever you want to call it, is upon us and happens in the year 2022, 2023, or 2024. In other words,  January 1, 2025 does not happen. NASA most certainly knows this, and now you should, too. Admit to yourself that it is all a lie, come out into the light, wake up, and save yourself, your spouse or other loved one, and your children.

One coldhearted 1967 News Release Log for NASA. It strangely fails to mention the Antarctica expedition

Now ask yourself, why did Wernher von Braun go traipsing off to Antarctica on January 3, 1967 with an entourage of senior NASA officials?  This tragic “accident” happened during a critical systems test a mere 24 days later. You would have thought the former NAZI officer Wernher von Braun was more focused on the fast approaching February 21, 1967 scheduled launch of Apollo 1 less than two months away. Why risk life and limb in Antarctica so close to the Apollo 1 launch date?

And why wasn’t this trip entered into the 1967 News Release Log? In fact, there is surprisingly little documentation of the Antarctic expedition. Here is the entry in the Astronautics and Aeronautics, 1967 Chronology on Science, Technology, and Policy prepared by the Library of Congress but “sponsored by” the NASA Historical Staff and published in 1968 by the Scientific and Technical Information Division of NASA.

January 3: Group of NASA officials, headed by MSFC Director Dr. Wernher von Braun, arrived at McMurdo Station in the Antarctic beginning 10-day expedition to observe environmental conditions-including temperatures, isolation factors, and survival techniques-for comparison and possible application to problems of space flight.

Both of the newspaper articles cited in the above quote were buried, the New York Times article (shown here to the left) on page 10 and the Washington Post article on page A21. What follows is the most complete reporting I can find of this most unusual trip at such a critical moment for the Apollo program. It is from the Antarctic Journal of the United States, Vol. II No. 2, March-April 1967.

NASA Officials Visit Antarctica

During January 3-10, four high officials of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration visited Antarctica as guests of the National Science Foundation. They were Dr. Wernher von Braun, Director of the George C. Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Alabama; Dr. Ernst Stuhlinger, Director of the Research Projects Division, George C. Marshall Space Flight Center; Dr. Robert Gilruth, Director of the Manned Space Flight Center, Houston, Texas; and Dr. Maxime Faget, Assistant Director for Engineering and Development, Manned Space Flight Center. Mr. Philip M. Smith, Program Director for Field Requirements and Coordination, Office of Antarctic Programs, prepared the program for the visit and accompanied the group to Antarctica.

Of principal interest to the NASA officials were management procedures of the U.S. antarctic program. Dr. Gilruth observed after the visit that, although the environmental conditions of Antarctica and the moon are quite dissimilar, the problems of support operations and scientific exploration in the two realms may parallel each other. “In each case,” he noted, “scientific investigations must be conducted at the end of a long and complex logistic chain. The concept of conducting a variety of scientific missions from a remote field base, such as the camp in Byrd Land, is similar to that of exploring the moon after the first lunar landings have been achieved. In both cases, the operational activities required to enable scientific investigations to be pursued are so massive that they tend to overshadow the efforts which they support. In coping with the problems that arise in coordinating such missions, an analysis of the past ten years of antarctic experience may be of assistance to NASA.”

From McMurdo Station, which served as headquarters for the visitors, trips were made to the dry valleys, New Zealand’s Scott Base, the Byrd Land camp, the Byrd VLF substation, and Byrd, Plateau, and Pole Stations. At all of these sites, scientific and military personnel explained the research and support activities in progress. The NASA group also visited Shackleton’s and Scott’s huts at Capes Royds and Evans. Trips between stations were made in Navy Hercules aircraft, whereas short trips were made in Navy LH-34D helicopters or surface vehicles.

At McMurdo Station, the group inspected the nuclear power plant, the saltwater distillation system, the backup diesel-electric power plant, the new medical facility, and the scientific laboratories. Special attention was given to the USARP biological laboratory, where work related to projects underway in the dry valleys was in progress.

Victoria Land. At left is Mr. Smith

During their visit to the dry valleys, the NASA officials inquired primarily about the problems of detecting and observing plant and animal life. Their interest was motivated by problems NASA encounters in designing life-detection systems for installation in spacecraft. USARP project scientists Roy E. Cameron of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Robert E. Benoit of Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and Russell W. Strandtmann of Texas Technological College discussed their studies of microorganisms and insects. These studies relate particularly to the
confinement of life to rigidly defined ecological zones, such as might occur on other planets.

At Byrd Station, the visiting scientists saw how living and working quarters had been constructed beneath the snow surface. They also examined the small modular facility installed at Byrd substation to support the long-wire VLF antenna program. “Conditions encountered in living below the surface of the moon,” Dr. von Braun said, “could be very similar to those encountered in living below the snow in Antarctica. Beneath-the-snow structures at Byrd Station permit USARP and Navy personnel to live and work in a relatively stable thermal environment and without concern for the effects of storms. If structures were to be placed a few feet beneath the lunar surface, the temperature could be kept at about 12°C. and protection could be provided from the damaging effects of solar flares.”

The Navy’s antarctic air operations aroused much interest among the group. At Williams Field, methods of servicing and repairing large aircraft, such as the C-130, and an air-cushioning device that supports aircraft fuselages were demonstrated by Air Development Squadron Six.

The visitors examined a variety of surface transport: equipment, including the motor toboggan, which is used by geological field parties; the “Gnat,” a New Zealand vehicle that transports personnel on Hut Point Peninsula; the “Track master,” which the group drove from the Byrd substation to Byrd; and the “Power Wagon,” which is used at McMurdo to carry personnel and freight.

At McMurdo, Pole, and Byrd Stations, Drs. Gilruth and von Braun gave illustrated lectures on the Gemini and Apollo programs. About 300 scientific and support personnel attended the McMurdo lecture, which was given in the helicopter hangar.

Before leaving Antarctica, the visitors held a briefing with Rear Admiral Fred E. Bakutis, commander of the U.S. Naval Support Force, Antarctica.

“Conditions encountered in living below the surface of the moon,” Dr. von Braun said, “could be very similar to those encountered in living below the snow in Antarctica. Beneath-the-snow structures at Byrd Station permit USARP and Navy personnel to live and work in a relatively stable thermal environment and without concern for the effects of storms. If structures were to be placed a few feet beneath the lunar surface, the temperature could be kept at about 12°C. and protection could be provided from the damaging effects of solar flares.”

About the only truthful thing I found in this article is the statement that starts with “Special attention was given to the USARP…”

The real story

Let me tell you what really happened. This mission was to brief top officials of the USAP on the reality that the United States could not possibly land a man on the Moon and that for various reasons “in the interest of national security,” they were going to stage the Moon landings. And in order to do that, they needed “Moon” rocks. The polar rock repository (PRR) at https://prr.osu.edu/,—which is notably under the control of the Ohio State University (as in the Ohio River Valley),—is part of the Antarctic Earth Sciences Program under the jurisdiction of what was then known as the United States Antarctic Research Program or USARP.

Here is where things get interesting. Most travel to and from McMurdo Station is during the austral summer (summer in the Southern Hemisphere) from October to February. The decision to stage the Moon landings has already been made. NASA officials already know the Apollo 1 astronauts are going to be sacrificed during the January 27, 1967 launch simulation. One of their main priorities is finding rocks that will pass as “Moon” rocks under scrutiny of geologists. They need to get down to Antarctica with a show of force because assembling their own team of geologists capable of exploring the Antarctic in time to make such a discovery is out of the question. The austral summer window for traveling is closing. This explains why Wernher von Braun and other top NASA officials left for Antarctica less than two months before the scheduled Apollo 1 launch on February 21, 1967.

It would be years later before “Moon” rocks were officially discovered in Antarctica. Are they really meteorites from the Moon? Who knows? Until someone actually lands on the Moon and brings back rocks from the lunar surface, no one can say for sure. So ask the Japanese, just don’t expect them to contradict NASA. As Sir Walter Scott said, “‘Oh what a tangled web we weave/When first we practice to deceive.”

A team of meteorite hunters from the NASA-funded Antarctic Search for Meteorites (ANSMET) program, discovered five new pieces of the Moon during an expedition to Antarctica in December 2018 and January 2019, and mineralogical analysis confirms their origin.

They were found in the Transantarctic Mountains and add up to nearly 100 grams (about as heavy as four double-A batteries), in an ice field roughly 400 kilometers (250 miles) from the South Pole.

The meteorites were characterized as “unmistakably lunar” by curatorial scientists at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History, involved in classification of the US Antarctic meteorites.

The new samples are a breccia, a type of rock containing many angular fragments and welded together by impacts on the Moon. The new specimens bring the total of lunar basaltic breccias in the U.S. Antarctic meteorite collection to nine, with others being recovered in 1987, 1994, 1996, and 2001. 

“These new samples give us an opportunity to continue learning about the Moon as we prepare for future surface operations with the Artemis Program,” said Kevin Righter, Antarctic meteorite curator at NASA’s Johnson Space Center. “The new samples may hold previously unknown information about the evolution of the Moon, and the origin and volatile contents of its basaltic rocks.”

NASA’s Artemis program is part of NASA’s broader Moon to Mars next step in human exploration, enabling the first woman and next man to set foot on the Moon by 2024, and establishing a sustainable exploration program with commercial and international partners by 2028. Artemis also is preparing for humanity’s next giant leap, human exploration of Mars.

The Antarctic Meteorite Laboratory at Johnson will curate the new lunar samples, and make them available to researchers for further study. The Johnson laboratory is responsible for curating the active research collection of ANSMET samples, which began in 1976. The new samples, like the other extraterrestrial sample collections at Johnson, will be available for detailed analysis in the laboratory and available to be requested by scientists around the world for research.

“These samples are complementary to the Apollo collection because they may come from locations on the Moon that we didn’t visit during that program,” said Francis McCubbin, Astromaterials Curator at Johnson. “Studying samples from across the Moon helps to better develop a globally relevant understanding of the thermochemical evolution of the Moon.”

The U.S. ANSMET program is a cooperative effort jointly supported by NASA’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office; the National Science Foundation’s Office of Polar Programs, which manages the U.S. Antarctic Program; and the Smithsonian Institution, as part of a three-agency agreement signed in 1980 and renewed in 2017.

Antarctic field work logistics are supported by the U.S. Antarctic Program and through a grant from NASA to Case Western Reserve University; initial examination and curation of recovered Antarctic meteorites is supported by NASA at the Astromaterials Curation facilities at Johnson; and initial characterization and long-term curation of Antarctic meteorite samples is supported by NASA and the Smithsonian Institution at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.

Details of the initial characterization of the specimen and sample availability are available through a recent edition of the Antarctic Meteorite Newsletter, released on the Web and available to researchers worldwide.

Nasa.gov, Scientists Confirm New Discovery of Moon Rocks on Earth by Charlie Plain, September 19, 2019

Antarctic Meteorite Newsletter

If you follow the link to the Antarctic Meteorite Newsletter in the last paragraph of this article you will discover that publication of this newsletter began in June 1978. Here is the top of Antarctic Meteorite Newsletter Volume 1 Number 1 so that you can get some idea of the volume of meteorites found in Antarctica.

One thing that never ceases to bother me is why the “Antarctic meteorite curator ” works at NASA’s Johnson Space Center. And why are we hearing from the Smithsonian Institute, notorious for the mass destruction of giant skeletons in the 1800s involved in this discussion? Strangely absent is the USGS whose history dating back to the foundation of the United States of America is intimately linked to the Ћinkers.


The Humpty Dumpty scene from 2001: A Space Odyssey discussed below is all about stuff like tranquillityite. I’ll let ABC News in Australia tell this story. 

Rare Moon mineral found in Australia

A mineral brought back to Earth by the first men on the Moon and long thought to be unique to the lunar surface has been found in Australian rocks more than 1 billion years old.

Named after Apollo 11’s 1969 landing site at the Sea of Tranquility, tranquillityite was one of three minerals first discovered in rocks from the Moon and the only one not to be found, in subsequent years, on Earth.

Australian scientist Birger Rasmussen said tranquillityite had “long been considered as the Moon’s own mineral” until geologists discovered it, by chance, in rock from resources-rich Western Australia.

“In over 40 years it hadn’t been found in any terrestrial samples,” said Dr Rasmussen from Curtin University.

When the Moon samples first came back, Dr Rasmussen said they were considered to be “extremely precious” and had been subjected to intense, detailed study when, ironically, their contents were “right here all the time”.

They were always part of Earth. They haven’t come from the Moon,” he said of his work on the discovery, published in the journal Geology.

“It tells you that broadly overall you have similar chemistries and similar processes operating on the Moon as on Earth.”

As well as being “quirky and surprising”, Dr Rasmussen said the discovery also had important practical applications, with the mineral proving to be an excellent dating tool which had allowed scientists to pin down the rocks’ ages.

“We used this mineral… to date the dolerite which has previously been undated, so that helped us understand the geological history,” he said.

They were 1.07 billion years old, more ancient than rocks in the area had previously been thought to be, and Dr Rasmussen said tranquillityite would be useful in dating similar rocks in the future.

“I think it will be a lot more widespread than just the six locations we’ve found it so far,” he said.

Kola Superdeep Borehole

Another possibility, the only one I knew of before a donor sent me a link to The Unz Review article cited above, is the Kola Superdeep Borehole, which is the deepest borehole ever drilled into the earth.

Geologists were keen to examine the lunar rocks. And some of these geologists were the same people who had been working at Kola. They noticed with astonishment that the composition of the Moon rocks was exactly the same as the composition of the rocks found at the 1.86 mile level below the earth’s surface.

It gets worse

The Unz Review article which inspired the rewrite of this section includes the following gem in which the author cites Gerhard Wisnewski’s One Small Step? : The Great Moon Hoax and the Race to Dominate Earth from Space published in 2008 and discussed above in the section entitled Historically important books in chronological order above.

But it gets much worse: some of the so-called moon rocks have been conclusively proven to be fake. In the 1990s, British astrobiologist Andrew Steele was granted the special privilege to get close to some of the precious samples locked in NASA safes, and imagine his surprise when discovering in them a bristle, bits of plastic, nylon and Teflon and tiny earthly animals (Wisnewski 207).

And of course, there is the “Goodwill Moon rocks” which even Wikipedia acknowledges are petrified wood.


While other “goodwill Moon rocks” commemorative plaque displays were reported lost or missing by several recipient countries,[1][2][3] both the Netherlands Apollo 11 and Apollo 17 “goodwill Moon rocks” commemorative plaque displays are in the country and accounted for.[1][2][4] However, in 2009 the Rijksmuseum of the Netherlands declared that the “goodwill Moon rock” it had received in 1992 from the estate of Netherlands Prime Minister Willem Drees was bogus. This “Moon rock,” which had been exhibited for more than a decade on a gold-colored piece of cardboard, weighs 89 grams (3.1 ounces) – far larger than the 1 gram piece of lunar basalt 70017 affixed to the Netherlands Apollo 17 lunar sample display. Testing of the Rijksmuseum “Moon rock” in 2009 showed it to be a piece of petrified wood, likely from Arizona. The Rijksmuseum had insured this “Moon rock” for ƒ100,000 (50,000 [$85,000] in 2012 currency) upon its receipt.[4][5][6][7][8]

An investigation showed that United States Ambassador J. William Middendorf II had presented Drees with the “Moon rock” on October 9, 1969. The Apollo 11 astronauts were visiting the Netherlands at that time on a goodwill tour. Drees’ grandson speculates that his grandfather, who was nearly deaf, and blind at the time, formed the mistaken impression that the “Moon rock” he received was from the Apollo 11 mission. When Drees’ “Moon rock” was received by the Rijksmuseum in 1992, the museum phoned NASA to verify its provenance and was told over the phone, without seeing the piece, that it was “possible” it was a Moon rock.[4]USA Today says the discovery of a bogus “Moon rock” at the Rijksmuseum should serve as a wake-up call for all the countries of the world and all the states of the United States that received the Apollo 11 and 17 lunar plaque displays from the Nixon administration to locate the displays and fully secure them.[4][5][6][7]

According to Moon rock researcher Robert Pearlman, both the Netherlands Apollo 11 and Apollo 17 lunar sample displays are in the National Museum of the History of Science and Medicine in Leiden, Netherlands.[1][2]

Was Stanley Kubric prepared for directing the staged Moon landings by first directing 2001: A Space Odyssey?

SECTION STATUS: First draft. Needs to be proofread.
SECTION LAST UPDATE: August 25, 2021

For what are possibly the only remaining examples of one of Stanley Kubrick’s waving flags on the lunar surface set, please see Conspiracy Theory: Did we land on the moon? (2001) directed by John Moffet for Fox TV above.

I fancy I know the mind of Stanley Kubrick. That’s a bold claim to make. I know. So allow me to demonstrate what I mean by interpreting the opening two scenes on the lunar surface in his movie 2001: A Space Odessey. In so doing, I will be exposing the reader to never-before-heard-of interpretations of this movie. These two scenes are where Stanley Kubrick answers the question of his involvement in the Apollo program for us. First, there is what I am calling the Humpty Dumpty scene.

Do you see the resemblance? Kubrick is introducing you to the subject of the Apollo programming by making—what is for me at least,—an overt reference to Humpty Dumpty. And we all know what happened to Humpty Dumpty.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall,
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men,
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

He fell off the wall – from the highest high – so high!
He had a great fall – from the highest high – high!
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men,
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

4:30 minute scene

The reference to Sir Francis Bacon in “king’s men” is unmistakable. Stanley Kubric was a Ћinker. Of that, there can be no doubt. He knows everything, which is why the following scene lasts for 4:30 minutes. The meaning of 43 is discussed at length on my homepage. Suffice it to say for now that this is Kubrick pointing at the bankers. And of course “the highest – so high” is a reference to the Moon. What it says is that the Apollo program is a hoax that eventually and inevitably will be exposed. Kubrick must have reveled in this introduction to the subject. It was a stroke of genius. It was Stanley Kubrick at his best. But it was only the introduction. The substance of what he had to say is in the next scene, which I am naming the waving flag scene. I would suggest to you that the waving flag scene is the most important scene in the entire movie.

The “debunkers” (many of whom, including notably all of the major news outlets, doubtless work for the bankers) love this one. It’s the crossbar, stupid. No, it’s Stanley Kubrick.

The waving flag scene

I state emphatically that this is the most important scene in the entire movie. Stanley Kubrick is risking his life at this point. But the bankers are oblivious to this stuff. It has been so from the time when The Revelation was written to this very day. It’s not that they’re stupid. They’re just too busy to notice. But you can be sure Kubrick poured himself into this scene. No detail should be overlooked, including the three huge movie projection screens lining three sides of the room. The scene opens with a cameraman dressed in a totally weird-looking plaid suit so as to get your attention. You’ll see this plaid again on Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall in The Shining. The photographer is Stanley Kubrick. After he leaves, there are 13 people left in the room.

Let’s just cut to the chase and take a look at this entire scene. If you have not read the previous section, please stop and do so now. The Humpty Dumpty scene is the introduction to this scene.

One thing you can be sure of is that Dr. Floyd is talking about the Apollo program when he says the following.

I found this cover story personally embarrassing myself. However, I accept the need for absolute secrecy in this and I hope you will, too. Now I’m sure you’re all aware of the extremely grave potential for cultural shock and social disorientation contained in this present situation. If the facts were prematurely and suddenly made public without adequate preparation and conditioning.

Oh yes. Ah, as some of you already know, the council has requested that formal security oaths be obtained in writing from everyone who has any knowledge of this event.

The “event” to which Kubrick is referring is the staged Moon landings. The bankers have already hired him to direct the lunar surface scenes and he has committed himself in writing to secrecy. This fact is also the subject of Stanley Kubrick’s contract scene in The Shining below

Did you notice anything unusual about this scene? It is a fully enclosed room. Kubric emphasizes this fact by the double doors through which the photographer exists. Notice the air conditioning vents. Assuming they are blowing harder than they would be in a normal commercial building (because of the extreme temperatures on the surface of the Moon), they may account for some movement in the rather large flags. But this scene is all about the disturbance of the American flag well after Dr. Halvorsen walks by it on his way to the podium.

Do you have any idea how tedious it is for me to spell out what is happening all the time? My thought would move at the speed of light if I didn’t have to do this all the time. There is so much more I want to learn before this happens, but I spend most of my time writing for others. In return for the effort, I am lucky to get one donation a week. But, as they say, I degress. My point is that I do not like having to convince others of stuff that grabbed my attention the first time I saw it. This was one of those moments where I could hardly contain my excitment.

At 41:45 minutes into the movie, again well after Dr. Halvorsen has reached the podium and is standing behind it, the American flag starts waving. Kubrick wasn’t taking any chances; it waves more than just a little, more than could possibly be explained by air conditioning vents or the draft of a passing man. And then as if to emphasize what just happened, the blue flag with the white star in the other corner at the front of the room starts inexplicably waving. In fact, if you watch carefully, both flags keep moving ever so slightly throughout this 4:30-minute scene. This is part of the message, too. As you will hear in the A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon clip below, film of the staged Moon landings had to be indoors for security reasons, which necessitated large airconditioning units to keep the actors cool while performing in their cumbersome spacesuits. It was those air conditioners that would blow the flags on the Apollo program stage.

The photographer (Kubrick) obscures the view of one of the airconditioning vents with his head as if to say “think about the air conditioning”

But why does the flag move so much when Dr. Halvorsen walks by? This is the question. Perhaps it was a disturbance in the air caused by Dr. Halvorsen walking by (even though Kubrick has made sure the timing of the flag moving does not support this theory). So you might ask, does the flag move when Dr. Floyd walks by it?

This is how I know beyond any shadow of a doubt that my interpretation of this scene is correct.

This is where Stanley Kubrick is having a little fun and speaking directly to you. It is in some small way what I call an “anti-cipher” in that he is letting you know that he did indeed move the flag on purpose. The answer is you’ll never know. Dr. Halvorsen blocks the camera’s view of the flag at this critical juncture in the scene. This was very deliberate. This is Kubrick telling you, “Yes, I meant for you to notice the waving flag.” And now that he has piqued your curiosity, you will want to go back and see what happens when the photographer races by the flag. Nothing! It does not move. Now, none of this will make sense until Humpty Dumpty falls and someone notices that one of the flags on the Moon inexplicably waves. The intended meaning of this scene is even in the name Halvorsen. HAL is the name of the computer in the movie and is being used to indirectly reference the Apollo program. Vor is German for before. And sen is seen, as in foreseen.

Lost footage

Did one or more of the flags on the Moon flutter in the airflow from the rather large conditioning units keeping the set cool? You can be sure of that. Kubrick was a master craftsman. But the evidence of this may be locked away in a NASA film vault because the centerpiece of the “save the Apollo program” propaganda campaign with all of its militaristic determination to “debunk” the truth is the waving flags on the Moon. Kubrick promised a waving flag so you can be sure it was there. But is it there any longer? Are you kidding me? At this point, the photographs, film, and other evidence from the late 1960s has been thoroughly scrubbed of anything that would lend credence to the “conspiracy theorists.” This is an ongoing propaganda war. It never stopped. Normality is the order of the day in the end-time, and disclosure of either the Apollo program as a hoax or 9/11 as anything other than a terrorist attack is deadly serious. Any evidence of waving flags that was not previously blastered all over the Internet is long gone.

Stanley Kubrick was eventually killed for doing this, for his compulsive need to use his art to tell us what was really happening.

4:33 (“for Bacon”)

The start of the movie is so bizarre that I just knew he was telling us something profoundly important. It took me a few minutes to find it. It was in the timing. The music reaches a very loud crescendo and then suddenly stops. The time is 4:33, as in “I am making this movie for 33,” 33 being a reference to Sir Francis Bacon and by extension the Freemasons of the South. I can understand the uninitiated objecting along the lines that this is sketchy evidence for such a sweeping claim, but Kubrick is clearly using scene timing in 2001: A Space Odessey to communicate with his audience. The waving flag scene discussed above is of such importance that the 4:30 minute timing cannot be happenstance. Likewise, this introduction to the movie is so bizarre, drags on for so long, and builds to such a crescendo, that the timing of the music stopping also cannot be happenstance, at least not for Stanley Kubrick. When I listen to the music, I am convinced it is a celebration of what happened in Elizabethan England. The eerie music at the start of the film is the state of affairs prior to 1558 when Queen Elizabeth I ascended the throne. Then there is silence and a short-lived MGM logo from 1966 which symbolizes the stage. This is followed by the opening fanfare from Also sprach Zarathustra (music), which is a celebration of the life of Sir Francis Bacon ending at 4:33 (“for Bacon”) minutes into the film. Zarathustra is another name for Zoroaster, the ancient Iranian prophet who founded what is now known as Zoroastrianism. This, too, is a nod to the Bard.

However, the implications of this are staggering. Stanley Kubric knows everything. He obviously has the confidence of the bankers, but he is signaling that he is also on the inside with the Ћinkers. I would guess that he was approached by the highly esteemed Freemason James E. Webb, who was the NASA Administrator. Mr. Webb is discussed at length below.

Closing thoughts

2001: A Space Odyssey was released on April 3, 1968, which is coincidentally 66 weeks and 6 days (a banker number) before the first Moon landing on July 16, 1969. A mere 1 year, 3 months, and 12 days separate the two events. The point being that Stanley Kubrick went from one project to the next. There was no rest in between, which is where All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy comes from in The Shining discussed below.

The movie 2001: A Space Odyssey is what enlightened individuals think of as “predictive programming.” It prepared the collective consciousness for the “reality” of a Moon landing that never happened. Beyond that, 2001: A Space Odyssey was instrumental in developing the cinematic tools necessary to make the gullible masses believe in the poorly executed Apollo program charade.

Predictive programming is not a game. It is an almost metaphysical method of altering our reality. The operative word in “predictive programming” is programming, and the meaning is as follows:

Kubrick had a deep respect for the intelligence of his audience. He was an extraordinary man in this regard. When I saw a flag waving in a windowless room with a closed door at the start of 2001: A Space Odyssey, I instantly knew what it meant. He had already decided one of the ways he would tell us that the Moon landings were faked.


Image from We Never Went to the Moon: America’s Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle by Bill Kaysing, 1976

The use of front screen projection in 2001: A Space Odyssey and Apollo program Moon scenes

This is now an old technology replaced by “green screens” and computers. However, at the time, the use of front screen projection was pioneered by Stanley Kubrick in 2001: A Space Odyssey. The first person to notice the “line between the set and screen,” which is the telltale sign of front screen projection, was Bill Kaysing in his book We Never Went to the Moon: America’s Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle, published in 1976. Jay Weidner discusses the use of front screen projection in 2001: A Space Odyssey and in official NASA images extensively in his film Kubrick’s Odyssey: Secrets Hidden in the Films of Stanley Kubrick. This is some of his best work.

Slow Motion: An important example of audience programming

The thing Stanley Kubrick did in both 2001: A Space Odyssey and the Moon landings that history will probably remember the most is his use of slow motion. Some future generation of children will look at these images in bewilderment and ask their parents how we could have ever believed something so bizarre. I credit Jay Weidner for making the connection between NASA film and what Stanley Kubrick did in 2001: A Space Odyssey. This clip is from his film Kubrick’s Odyssey: Secrets Hidden in the Films of Stanley Kubrick.

Frederick I. Ordway III, left, Arthur C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick on the set of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

An estimated 50 companies and major corporations provided material support for the filming of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Why?

The following clip from How Kubrick made 2001: A Space Odyssey on the CinemaTyler YouTube channel should be thought-provoking. It features Frederick Ordway who the New York Times characterized as “a top official at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, working closely with the rocket scientist Wernher von Braun.” Frederick Ordway was also the “chief technical consultant and scientific adviser” for 2001: A Space Odyssey. The New York Times article, written after his death in 2014, goes on to say “he was one of Mr. Kubrick’s most essential advisers, roaming from NASA offices to the corporate headquarters of companies like General Electric.”

Here is another take on the high profile individuals and corporations involved in the production of 2001: A Space Odyssey. This is Carl James, author of Science Fiction and the Hidden Global Agenda. He also maintains a blog named The Truth Seeker’s Guide.

Clip from Richplanet – New evidence on Stanley Kubrick faking the Apollo Moon landing (full version) on the Robert Ritter YouTube channel

Why are so many companies and major corporations cooperating in the production of a supposedly commercial film?

The answer is simple. These very same companies would earn countless millions producing the sequel, which history remembers as the Apollo program. And in the process, their CEOs would get a Ticket to Ride the A Line at Denver International Airport, not to Denver Union Station, but to the underground entrance to the multi-trillion dollar tunnel system in the Front Range.

One common objection to the Apollo program being faked and never leaving low Earth orbit is the fact that this has been kept secret for half a century. From where I am sitting, I look at the fact that this has been kept secret for so long, and especially the fact that Russia and China have never publically said anything, as evidence of the true extent to which the progeny of Jove control the world in which we live. From that perspective, the greatest lie of all time, including the current massive propaganda campaign to squelch the rising tide of voices screaming, “this could never have happened,” is both instructive and somewhat intimidating.

I find these seven videos about How Kubrick made 2001: A Space Odyssey from the CinemaTyler YouTube channel to be extremely well done. Of course, in this context, this is also a study of how Kubric made the Moon scenes for NASA. Several clips from these videos are used in the sections above.

The Shining

This section showcases the work of Jay Weidner in his film Kubrick’s Odyssey: Secrets Hidden in the Films of Stanley Kubrick. But, with all due respect, no one, including Mr. Weidner, has ever noticed the most important scene in The Shining. This is the scene where the family is driving to Jack’s new job in the mountains. It ends with this visual in which the ladder is a capital letter A and the two columns to the right of the ladder are ones, making a very subtle, but unmistakable reference to A11 or Apollo 11. I say unmistakable because of the force of the scene immediately prior.

You only need to open your eyes to what is happening in this movie. Most people can’t see it, but I assure you it is very real.

He saw it on the television

Listen to the music. The music always tells you what the director is thinking. “You see, it’s okay. He saw it on the television” is Kubric telling you that as a people we accept everything we see on the television as gospel, as acceptable, as the truth. In this case, the mind of a young child has no problem accepting the idea of cannibalism because “he saw it on the television.” Likewise, we all accepted the Moon landings because we saw it on the television. That made it real for us. It’s a powerful message from a man who knew better.

I was aware of this scene in which there is no power cord but never used it because I wasn’t sure how to interpret it’s meaning until the writer David Montaigne sent me an email explaining it. That this movie is all about the Apollo 11 staged Moon landing is obvious to anyone paying attention. What Kubrick is saying is that that the Apollo 11 Moon landing we saw on TV was as impossible as is this TV picture with no power cord.

Matthew 13:13

Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.


Let me stop here and make a few timely remarks on what is happening in The Shining and in defense of Jay Weidner. Stanley Kubrick is famous for meticulously planning everything on a movie set down to the last detail. Nothing is there by accident. Movies are not books. The conveyance of meaning is not limited to the dialogue between characters. Every scene in a Kubrick movie is visually communicating something. Moreover, he is something of a cinematic genius. To pretend that his movies have only a surface meaning is sheer stupidity.

Jay Weidner

Stanley Kubrick’s contract scene in The Shining

This analysis is the work of Jay Weidner. However, I fully endorse it and in my opinion, his analysis of The Shining is dead-on in every respect. Jay Weidner deserves great praise for seeing what Kubric was really portraying in this movie. All I can add to it is to state what seems obvious to me, which is that the entire movie is about the contract scene. This is Stanly Kubrick’s apology to the American public for his participation in the Apollo Program fraud. I think it was a genuine apology.

Here is the trailer for Jay Weidner’s film entitled Kubrick’s Odyssey: Secrets Hidden in the Films of Stanley Kubrick in which he analyzes The Shining

I am going to present his analysis on three levels so that you can decide how far you want to go with this. The first is just the contract scene taken directly from the movie, nothing else. After that is an excerpt from a YouTube video which can be thought of as a Reader’s Digest or Cliff Notes for Jay Weidner’s full analysis of The Shining. And then finally the excerpt from Kubrick’s Odyssey: Secrets Hidden in the Films of Stanley Kubrick Part 1 which is the full analysis.

The contract scene has two principal elements: the opening of the scene in which the wife discovers that Jack has been typing the same sentence for months and the contract rant. However, it is important to keep in mind that the main character Jack, who portrays Stanley Kubrick in this movie, is whacked with a baseball bat by his wife at the end of this scene and tumbles down a staircase. All of which is to say that this is the highpoint or crescendo of the movie. This is what it is all about.

Kubrick is deliberately using an old fashion typewriter font in which the number 1 and the small letter l are indistinguishable.

A11 work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

All = Apollo 11

We know this in part because it is being typed on this Adler typewriter

Adler is German for eagle as in “The Eagle has landed”

But also because of a lot of other props Jay Weidner so thoughtfully inventories.

The most important of which is Danny’s sweater.

Here then is the 04:03 minute opening of the contract scene.

What is Stanley Kubric saying about his involvement in the Apollo Program? Why does Jack lose his mind in this scene? The answer is because the Apollo program lasted for nine years from 1963 to 1972 (which incidentally, pretty much captured the entirety of my childhood). Filming for 2001: A Space Odyssey began December 29, 1965, and there is more than adequate evidence that Kubric was already involved with NASA by that time. (See my discussion of all of the major corporations involved in the filming of 2001: A Space Odyssey above). So you can figure that Stanley Kubric was involved with the Apollo Program in some capacity for the entire nine years.

But he did begin producing film until Apollo 11, so the very minimum he was filming for NASA is for four years starting from early 1969 through the end of 1972. By comparison, according to Wikipedia, filming for 2001: A Space Odyssey lasted less than two and a half years from December 29, 1965, until March of 1968. More important in the context of “Jack” losing his mind in The Shining, Stanley Kubrick went directly from filming 2001: A Space Odyssey to filming for the Apollo Program. There most certainly was not a break between the two. Which means…

He worked continuously for six
years from 1966 through 1972.
He was exhausted.

And here is the 47-second contract rant. This is what the whole movie is about. As you watch this, keep in mind the wife’s plea “Oh Jack, what are you talking about?” is an invitation from Stanley Kubrick to contemplate the real meaning of this scene.

For those of you not interested in watching the full 32:33 minute Jay Weidner presentation of this subject, here is the condensed version.

And finally, here is the full 32:33 minute Jay Weidner analysis of The Shining.

Excerpt from Kubrick’s Odyssey: Secrets Hidden in the Films of Stanley Kubrick Part 1 on the SacredMysteriesTV YouTube channel. Note that in all of the clips from The Shining, the video soundtrack is badly out of sync. This is true no matter where you watch the full film including on Amazon prime.

The 237,000 miles to the Moon problem

Max Fisher of The Atlantic who wrote an article entitled The Shining’ = Confession to Moon Landing Hoax on February 1, 2020, in which he makes a number of snide remarks including the following:

WHY A KEY LABELED ‘ROOM 237’ PROVES IT: “Because the average distance from the Earth to the Moon is 237,000 miles.”


Weidner takes a lot of flak for the 237,000 miles to the Moon thing. If you listen to his version of the story, he is fully aware of this issue and says the data available to Stanley Kubrick in 1980 was that the Moon was 237,000 miles away.

At the time that Kubrick faked the Apollo Moon landings, it was common knowledge in the textbooks and the scientific work that the Moon was 237,000 miles away from the Earth. This is the figure Stanley was working with, and that is why he changed the room from 217 to 237.

Casual critics who jump on the 237,000 miles from the Moon criticism bandwagon ignore the focus on the door key. It is artistic. It is deliberate. And it is for a reason. I like Jay Weidner’s “Moon Room” also. As I said at the beginning of this section, I think his analysis is dead-on. And I find no reason to doubt his research into the 237,000 miles he says Stanly Kubrick was working with at the time he made The Shining 40 years ago. Here is the relevant scene.

Carl James specifically names the American Heritage Science Dictionary as the source for the 237,000 miles to the Moon.

How much did Stanley Kubrick know?

I want to finish my analysis of 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Shining by pointing out something others have noticed. The main character in 2001: A Space Odyssey is David Bowman which sounds a lot like Archer. Archer is another name for the Sagittarius constellation, the arrow of which Dr. Paul LaViolette has shown is pointing at the center of the galaxy. There is also what Jay Weidner calls an “exploding galaxy” in one of the final scenes. I missed this.

And of course, 2001: A Space Odyssey was released on April 3, 1968, which is something I discuss in the section entitled 1943 and Active Seyfert Galaxies on page № 28. A Date with Destiny. When all of this is combined with Stanley Kubrick’s choice of the name Bowman for the main character, this brings up the question of how much did Stanley Kubrick really know. It would seem to me that he knows everything.

It is difficult for me to believe that the progeny of Jove would not tell Kubrick the whole story in order to properly motivate him and so that he fully understood the consequences of breaking his oath of secrecy. I find it equally difficult to imagine Kubrick would not have insisted on knowing everything. So lets us assume he did.

This would throw a whole new light on the choice of Stephen King’s novel The Shining and it’s room 217. I am thinking of course of page № 23. The Great Wonder was an Asterism on September 23, 2017 (923). And the Going-to-the-Sun Road in the Rockies could be associated with the vault profound as Virgil and I call it. I don’t want to make too much of this, but the choice of the name Bowman in 2001: A Space Odyssey strikes me as very deliberate.

Apollo 13

Apollo 13 was the final insult to our intelligence. I want to discuss it at great length at some future date. However, this section was largely based on the Shill Stompers YouTube video Moon Hoax; “What’s Up With Apollo 13?”, which is now gone and nowhere to be found on the Internet. Unfortunately, this happened before I started keeping copies of anything I use on this website.

Presumably, it was replaced with the following three Shill Stomper videos, which I am going to include on this page without first studying them in depth. That is highly unusual of me, but a reality of my current workload.

My reason for wanting to include these three videos is because at 3:55 minutes into the third video, the point is made that James Webb,—a Ћinker discussed at length in the next section,—resigned because Apollo 8 was lauched without his knowledge, which is why he resigned. I was astounded to learn this because he was the NASA Administrator at the time. So you see the bankers were actually in charge at NASA. This was doubtless part of what Mr. Webb was trying to tell us by resigning on October 7, 1968. See the last paragraph of the next section for a discussion of his resignation date.

James E. Webb, second NASA Administrator

James Webb was the 66th United States Secretary of the Navy. This caught my attention immediately because under no circumstances whatsoever would the 66th United States Secretary of the Navy be anything other than a progeny of Jove. So I did some investigation and was not disappointed. Do you want to see one of the faces of the progeny of Jove, a Ћinker to be precise? They are real people, more real than perhaps you will ever know.

Jim Webb

At least at first, I was totally confused to learn that James Webb had been appointed by JFK to be the second NASA Administrator on February 14, 1961. I’ve got this guy pegged as not only a Ћinker but as perhaps a leader among them. How can he be part of the Apollo program, one of the grandest deceptions of all time? The possibility presented a challenge to my whole belief structure. So I was forced to stop and delve into this man’s past. Wikipedia has this one terse little sentence; “Webb was a Freemason.[18]I followed that link for a fuller explanation.

The James Webb Space Telescope takes its name from the man who shaped NASA, Freemason James Edwin Webb.




Webb, James Edwin (1906-1992) Born in Tally Ho, North Carolina, USA, James Webb served as a pilot in the US Marine Corps, 1930-1932. With qualifications in education and law, he became variously a lawyer, Barrister, vice-President of Sperry Gyroscope Company, director of the Bureau of the Budget within the Executive Office of President Truman (see above), and Under Secretary of State.

James Webb oversaw the NASA administration during the Apollo moon landing missions.

When, in 1961, Webb was approached by President John F. Kennedy to head up the fledgling NASA organization as their ‘Administrator’, James Webb was originally reluctant to accept the post. Webb felt his background was money not science, and considered that a person with a background in aeronautical science would be more appropriate. President Kennedy disagreed, insisting that the role was not a scientific one but rather policy-based with a strong fiscal element – and adeptly won Webb over. It proved an astute choice as Webb went on to adroitly steer NASA through its most exciting early phase.

Under his direction, NASA launched 75 space science missions; including Project ‘Apollo‘, the Orbiting Solar Observatory, and the ‘Explorer‘ series of astronomical satellites – building the foundation for the most successful period of space exploration in history. Until October 1968, James Webb politicked, coaxed, cajoled, and maneuvered for NASA in Washington. As a long-time Washington insider, he was a master at bureaucratic politics. In the end, through a variety of methods, Administrator Webb built a seamless web of political liaisons that brought continued support for, and resources to, accomplish the Apollo moon landing within the 10-year schedule President Kennedy had announced on the 25th May 1961.

It has been said that James Webb, a mere “administrator”, did more to progress modern science than any qualified scientist ever could. The planned replacement for the orbiting Hubble Telescope, the New Generation Space Telescope was renamed the James Webb Space Telescope, in his honor.

James Webb was a Brother in University Lodge No. 408, Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

I checked to see is when the Apollo program first claimed to leave low Earth orbit because James Webb resigned from NASA on October 7, 1968, and his reason for doing so was highly questionable.

On March 31, President Johnson surprised the nation by announcing that he would not run for re-election. NASA Administrator James E. Webb, a close ally of Johnson, didn’t want to stay on until a new President was inaugurated in 1969. Webb announced his resignation in October, thus Paine served as Acting Administrator by the time Apollo 8 circled the Moon.

50 years ago, on the way to the Moon…

This is not the kind of man who would offer such a reason for leaving. What I see happening here is a Ћinker who has learned the whole Apollo program is a charade and who does not want to be a part of the lie, so he leaves before the first claim to leave low Earth orbit.

Now if James Webb is a Ћinker, his resignation date would be meaningful. It almost has to be given the significance of what is happening.

And as you can see, he resigned 75 days (or 108,000 minutes) before the winter solstice, one day for each of the “75 space science missions” mentioned in the above University Lodge No. 408 article. I cannot help to think of the Nazarene’s warning “Pray that your flight be not in the winter” (Matthew 24:20 and Mark 13:18) in this context. Was Mr. Webb pointing to the winter solstice as did the Nazarene as the time of the coming planetary catastrophe?

Operation Paperclip

NASA inherited its original workforce from Operation Paperclip and shortly thereafter became the driving force behind the Apollo program. Adolf Hitler and Joseph Goebbels inspired the “Big Lie”? From day one these high-ranking NAZI military officers and scientists owed their lives to the people I call the progeny of Jove. There can be no doubt whatsoever that NASA is and always has been a wholly-owned subsidiary of the progeny of Jove (the CIA at that time). Everything they do or say is of necessity suspect.
