ON Friday, Nov 4, 2011 an event occurred which passed relatively unnoticed in the media, as six volunteer "astronauts" stepped outside of a facility in Moscow in which they had spent the last year and a half, simulating a manned mission to Mars:

Moscow \'Mars mission\' ends after 520 days

The project was a joint mission of the Russian space agency and Europe's space agency, and included one Chinese, one French, one Italian, and three Russian volunteers. The article specifically notes that a mission is planned for sometime in the mid-2030s, after a "return" to the Moon.

So what's missing here?

One should note, first, that the Russians, Europeans, and Chinese are determined enough to begin the long-range planning for such manned long-range space missions, notwithstanding the economic problems we are currently undergoing. And we may be sure that, if Europe's economic woes prevent such a mission, the Russians and Chinese will proceed apace anyway. The technological, economic, and even resource future lies in space, and they know this.

What's missing is, obviously, the United States, where there seems to be no interest in planning for such missions and yet, as I reported last week, there is interest in developing "tractor beam" technologies and other advanced projects.  We are left with questions: with so many economic problems besetting the world, why would Europe , Russia, and China be sponsoring such a project, while there is no equivalent effort - as far as we know - in the United States?

We are left with equally disquieting answers: either the USA has ceded all interest in long-range manned missions to its competitors, an unthinkable alternative in my opinion, or there may be such plans in the works covertly, which, given the history of deceptions involving space, I am willing to entertain. Be that as it may, however, the fact that such efforts are underway publicly in Europe, Russia, and China means that the USA, if it is to remain competitive in space matters, will have to move whatever covert programs and schemes it has for such missions out into the open.  At the minimum, this pressure from our competitors may force the issue, revealing the "covert space program" as either a big bluff, or forcing us back into a more public posture.  We may expect more such projects from them, and in my opinion, it's high time for us to get back into business for ourselves.

    There is no secret American space program.
    Just a foolish nation run by a bunch of idiots who want mansions, electronic toys, drugs, and whores. They couldn’t care less about exotic space travel.
    Get real, stop wallowing in denial, and face the very sad fact that America has wasted it’s time and resources on crap, junk and sleaze.
    America is now a gigantic mountain of stikin filth, with no redeeming qualities whatsoever remaining.
    America is a rotting corpse in a desert of cultural nihilsm that aches for a dictator to bring it back to life.
    We have been down this road before in world history and it always ends up in disaster.

    No American spaceships to other galaxies, no secret space fleet, no flying saucers, just rusted broken cars in front yards, a collapsing national infrastructure, middle class towns turning into slums, and the super-rich living like the Olympian Gods, in island mansions.
    The super-rich don’t think about space ships to Mars they just spend their billions on luxury items and laugh at the rest of us dumb coupon cutting rabble.

    And, if there are outer space aliens involved in all of this, then they took over the earth a long, long, time ago, and they care about you and me as much as they care about the dead dinosuars. They don’t need us, any of us.
    We are just dandruff.

    Well, now I will be tarred and feathered and end up looking like that Empyrian creature from the Outer Lilimts episode, “Second Chance.”

    It does seem strange that all the Russian Mars probes have failed I wonder who has been sabotaging the Russian even the ESA Mars probe Beagle. What is the USA hiding about what it found on Mars. I wish the Russia-Chinese-ESA man Mars mission luck they will need it hoping for the best but fearing the worst.

    Took time to go deep.
    The post didn’t take.
    Last time I tried again.
    This time, another small battle is lost.

    The WAR continues.

    October 18, 2009 was the day when Mac Tonnies, aged 34, woke up dead. The book he was writing at the time has been published – partly – and the Ufologists are happy the do not have to put up with Tonnies any longer. All of the Ufologists taken together weren’t even half as honest as Mac.

    The book is called ”The Cryptoterrestrials”. When reading it the attentive reader won’t fail to notice that some obvious things are missing, i.e. the manuscript has been redacted/censored. It’s only 128 pages. I think Mac was on their trail and that’s why he had to die ”of natural causes”.

    What I want to say is that all the usual suspects being bandied around are just the errand boys/girls for someone in the background. Having lived in hiding on Earth for such a long time makes them cryptoterrestrials. The big question is not: ”Where did they come from?” but rather:”How do we send them back?”

    Thanks to compartmentalization not many of the useful idiots know the big picture. They know the small pics of their countless own private interests but not the all-encompassing big picture. For them as for everyone else on planet Earth, it’s divide and conquer.

    If you want to control Earth, you got to have the Moon. They have had the Moon for thousands of years, if not all the ancient and not-so-ancient astronomers have been frauds.

    Planets without atmospheres or magnetic fields only exist in the deranged minds of Nasa shills.

    • LSM on November 14, 2011 at 6:37 am

      Hi Karl,

      I couldn’t agree with you more!-

      I’m not yet familiar with the Tonnies material although I will try to check it out if there’s anything left of it-

      “Thanks to compartmentalization not many of the useful idiots know the big picture.”- you can say THAT again! 🙂

      “If you want to control Earth, you got to have the Moon.”- I think “they” are already are ensconced at that very location, among others-

      I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I truly believe Gary McKinnon was telling the truth-

      and as much as I hate to admit it to myself regarding David Icke, to quote Icke’s “formerly biggest mega-sceptic” Alex Jones’ recent testimony: “David, I think you’re on to something…”

    Dr Joseph, concerning your health.

    As a fellow smoker I’m not sure if your aware of the new changes to cigarettes with recent legislation requiring a fire retardant to be added to cigarette papers (completely redundant since natural tobacco extinguishes itself without quick burning additives).

    Numerous smokers have being having serious health issues with the new papers. Its seems the only solution is to roll your own cigarettes with non fire retardant papers and an additional benefit is better quality tobacco (much fewer additives) with roll or make your own cigarettes.

    • legioXIV on November 14, 2011 at 1:37 pm

      Here, here well said,
      Rollies are not only better in quality but they are cheaper too.
      At least one has the choice to poison oneself with quality haha

  6. bdw on November 13, 2011 at 9:47 pm

    I’ll throw this out there just for fun.

    In the mid 1990’s a fairly well-known “channelled” source made the claim that the US gov’t had vehicles that could travel to other GALAXIES in a couple of weeks.

    There is no proof whatsoever for any channelled information (some/most/all of which could very well be piped into the channeller by some intelligence agency) of course.

    And yet, I would not be surprised.

    • Hermes on November 14, 2011 at 10:27 am

      ~Spend some time reading many channels and wait for the inner being to prove what you already know. I got absolutely floored by the Law of One which led me down the path…there are only a few that are worth your time, but only that inner being will remember that…


  7. Ramura on November 13, 2011 at 9:17 pm

    My “theoreticals” are getting spread really thin here, lately. I rountinely check in with a wide spectrum of viewpoints, usually having to do with exopolitics, secret governments, globalists, suppressed technology and a whole host of more social topics. I am an “info-surfer” and my enquiring mind has a LOT of latitude. 🙂

    This article brings up so many thoughts. The first of which is “The U.S. is appearing to close down or show no interest in the space programs because they’ve already got it covered in the secret program!”

    But, the linked article points to efforts that continue to be made worldwide to do it the old-fashioned way; and, in this, the U.S. is conspicuously absent.

    Meanwhile, on another channel, I am now watching with fascination the latest stories coming out of Andrew D. Basiago over on with Alfred Lambremont Webre, who practically invented the term “exopolitics,” and if not the term then the continued application and filling in of the field from the inside out.

    There they are reporting about “jump rooms” to Mars as far back as the early 70’s, secret projects in the early 80’s preparing teens for Mars jumps and FURTHERMORE it now appears that the teens in question, at least some of them, had been identified for the project by technologies (both technical and psychic?) that SAW who was going to be President, when, etc. A young Barack Obama was on that team! Although it is still a taboo topic, I trust I won’t shock everyone on this thread when I say that I think the reason that Obama’s provenance and history is so redacted is precisely BECAUSE he has been a secret government asset; probably from birth, and at least two generations back! So why wouldn’t they tell him he had a destiny and prepare him for a brave new world? Especially if “they” are literally sculpting that brave new world through social engineering and every other imaginable level at the same time.

    I am as confused as most as to WHO these people are. That’s why I follow Farrell! My gut tells me he has the scent of this varmint But I am clear that the players and teams seem to shift constantly, making it almost impossible to read the moves, even with a scorecard (as Rayelan Allen, of RumorMillNews — who ought to know — often says).

    Either way, it now appears that even the people who read articles such as this are now noticing the U.S. absence in the mundane space program. That’s got to raise a few eyebrows, even in scientifically inclined circles, wouldn’t you think?

    And from my viewpoint, thoroughly delighting in ALL the grand circus — the scientific, the rational, the “wildly speculative,” the way out, the way out that’s so out it makes sense, and everything in between — it is all becoming quite amazing to watch as it all unfolds.

    But then maybe that’s because one of my first spiritual lessons was always to add a good dose of “amusement” when viewing any situation…

    They are all playing “Let’s Pretend.”

    They waste a lot of money on that game.

    But then, ‘waste’ is part of another game
    called fiat / fake economics, which is just
    another version of “Let’s Pretend.”

  9. romanmel on November 13, 2011 at 6:37 pm

    It has occured to me that maybe the reason for the NASA’s exit from the contemporary space program is that TPTB are about to reveal some of the secret space program we’ve been involved in for years. I would love to hear that story.

  10. Ken Lemon on November 13, 2011 at 2:36 pm

    Mr. Quasar:
    I think your right, all this BS in the media is a smoke screen. I’ll bet anything that the USA has, and has had, for many years, space vehicles that can go anywhere, Moon Mars etc.

    Exit the shuttle, so whats in the pipeline, nothing, NASA is relatively “silent’ on anything new, imagine what they have on the “QT”.

    Hoagland was right about the Apollo missions, they got what they went there to get, and are now using the technology for their “black projects” and that is why the good ol’ USA is BROKE.

  11. Thomas Marz on November 13, 2011 at 2:02 pm

    Odd that the recent Russian Phobos-Grunt mission has almost failed if not completely failed as they were unable to get two precise burns to occur that would have taken the satellite out of Parking Orbit. I believe the Chinese were sending their first interplanetary probe to orbit Mars itself for about a year

  12. david wilson on November 13, 2011 at 10:59 am

    You talk of competitors to the USA and of Europe’s financial state being a problem. Surely any competition that we perceive is merely a fear factor fed to the masses by those who direct all space exploration much the same as they have manipulated and directed manufacturing output globally. Much the same as they have directed the financial meltdown which appears to be global and not confined to Europe, not forgetting that China too is beholden to funny money loaned long ago and will not escape the global financial restructuring.

    The cold war was an illusion, the protagonists were working together behind the scenes on space projects and weaponry. Any future world war has probably been agreed already by all parties as has all space exploration, there seems indeed to be a hidden global hand quite busy right now.

    • LSM on November 13, 2011 at 11:14 am

      Hi David,

      “here seems indeed to be a hidden global hand quite busy right now.”

      quite right as far as my own understanding/independent research goes- but who is really in charge of the global hand?- I don’t have the answer- Godless Zionist Jews?- Jesuits?- or yet another incomprehensible force?

      • david wilson on November 14, 2011 at 2:29 am

        It baffles me also, we have the Nazi’s, the Zionists, the thirteen families and Hitler even maintained he met Satan personally. Add to this the greys, the masons, the bilderburgers, the ….and on and on. All suspects but maybe what we are dealing with is within us all, maybe we have been fine tuned by religion over many ages to believe we are a power for good.

        Perish the thought but could it be that evil is equal to good within every one of us and those in power over us (responsible for all this slaughter) are merely those who are taught to embrace this possibility from birth and not deny it?

        • LSM on November 14, 2011 at 6:59 am

          “but could it be that evil is equal to good within every one of us and those in power over us (responsible for all this slaughter) are merely those who are taught to embrace this possibility from birth and not deny it?”

          yes, we’ve been living in an Orwellian world for a long time: evil = good-

          it’s all part of our induced denial system-

          anyway, David, I think we should probably end our discussion at this point before we clog the comments section and Dr. Farrell deletes the “reply” button 🙂

          many thanks for your insights/response- greatly appreciated-

            Circles within circles…Khazars (created the “zionist”) are one of the most inner circles I’ve run across…explains a LOT of the history we’ve been fed…

            FOMENKO is blowing open the hidden history though and how the narrative is FALSE…DR FARRELL, have you picked up VOLUME 1 (637 pages) and there are FOUR VOLUMES SO FAR!?

            He includes a section with all FACTS so anyone, anytime can discuss the history with facts before them…

            I see your off on the hunt.

            I’m backtracking re-reading Manly P Hall or sticking with basics. The first paragraph in chapter two called “The Ancient Mysteries Which Have Influenced Modern Masonic Symbolism, PART I” is quite enlightening.

            I read the deep structure of this paragraph below.

            The paragraph,

            The entire history of Christian and pagan Gnosticism is shrouded in the deepest mystery and obscurity; for, while the Gnostics were undoubtedly prolific writers, little of their literature has survived. They brought down upon themselves the animosity of the early Christian Church, and when this institution reached its position of world power it destroyed all available records of the Gnostic — cultus. The name – Gnostic – means – wisdom, or – knowledge, and is derived from the Greek – Gnosis. The members of the order claimed to be familiar with the secret doctrines of early Christianity. They interpreted the Christian Mysteries according to pagan symbolism. Their secret information and philosophical tenets they concealed from the profane and taught to a small group only of initiated persons.

            Now the question I have for the Group is this –


            and unlike OBAMA DO YOU = THINK YOUR ONE OF THEM.

            If so then I don’t want to know You!

  14. LSM on November 13, 2011 at 6:52 am

    “What’s missing is, obviously, the United States”-

    I’m not yet convinced the US is missing-

    “it’s high time for us to get back into business for ourselves.”-

    I think the United States has owned the business for a long time and it’s a monopoly- failed space missions by other countries (if there is truth to these reports) are an elimination of attempted competition-

    I don’t think Gary McKinnon’s testimonies are a fabrication, and I truly believe there are a lot more “scary shit” technologies out there that are, as many have stated, thousands of years far more advanced than your average Joe Sixpack/Mary Sunshine can (wants!) to believe-

    and my gut feeling tells me that outer space, as seen/perceived/decoded by our very limited conscious minds, is not the last frontier…

    please take care of yourself, Dr. Farrell- stay healthy!

  15. Citizen Quasar on November 13, 2011 at 5:45 am

    It appears to me that the United States is slated to be a crotch groping prison and death camp, and pretty much everyone is going along with it. So there is no need for a public space program here. The daily newspaper horoscope is all the “astronomy” that people need.

    I submit that NASA et al. have real life anti-gravity fueled flying saucers and they have landed manned missions both on Phobos and in Cydonia. They have what they want. All the Mars satellite missions are just for show; camouflage.

    • SkyOracle on November 13, 2011 at 6:01 pm

      I am in the same camp. I believe that the World Mafia knows that there will be a need to destroy the last remnents of American culture and begin the campaign of marshall law here. They know that they will have to hit fast and hard due to the amount of gun owners in this country.

      Its been done before on a catastrophic scale at the beginning of the last century,remember Russia and the amount of murder and butchery that took place. The bourgeoisie and the peasants didn’t have near that much to fight back with and they still butchered almost 200 million people before it ended.

      All following the roadmap of the Carl Marx (pseudoynm) Moses Levy Mordecai or Hirschel Levi, take your pick since the Zionist change their names with the change of the wind. Funny how the Holocaust gets all of the publicity while most Americans aren’t aware of these atrocities. But the World Mafia gets to write History do they not?

      NASA is already under their control so, America will be doing their part if not already leading the way!
