PRIVATE COMPANY FOUNDED TO MINE THE MOON is reporting something very significant:

Shooting for the moon -- to mine it

I hope you caught the central story here, one very possibly explaining the sudden interest  of the various world space powers in going to the Moon. Naveen Jain, the founder of the company Moon Express, Inc., whose purpose is to robotically mine the Moon, puts it country simple:

"The MoonEx project came about because we started thinking: There are a tremendous amount of resources that are available on the moon, and the moon has never been explored from the perspective of an entrepreneur. Every 6 inches of moon has been mapped. But no one has combined the data together and realized (that) these resources are right here.

"Q: What kinds of resources?

"A: . Today, 80 percent of these come from , which now has a policy not to export them. That means we're held hostage. We know we can get these elements on the moon."

There are a number of important consequences to any successful commercial development of the Moon. The first of these is, in my opinion, and notwithstanding current treaty obligations, that the idea of real estate property will soon become applicable to the Moon, and that international law and conventions and treaties concerning the Moon will have to be revised accordingly, and that in itself posts a problem:

What about the possibility that "someone" might actually already be there? They might object. After all, it was back during the Apollo period that author George Leonard first proposed the idea that someone was already there, and already mining the Moon, in a little book called Someone Else is On the Moon. The book was the usual amalgam of NASA photos, alleged whistleblower testimony, and drawings, and on the whole, unconvincing, but it did at least raise the hypothetical and legal problem.

There is another implication as well. In Babylon's Banksters I noted that the inevitable problem faced by a global financial elite working within the context of a closed energy and financial system was thateventually, it would have to "expand the bottle", i.e., expand the field of economic action, or perish, and the only two ways to do that were much further and deeper commercialization of the world's oceans, or outer space. Enter Mr. Jain: the Moon offers precisely such a rich repository for the expansion of the sphere of commerce off world.

And that means, inevitably, that the Western financial Elites well know that they are again in a space race, one which they, and not the other space powers - Russia, China, Japan, even India and Brazil - must win.

    This kind of late tne Moon posts and mineing that should begone decedes ago. NASA and USA should have already their a long time ago. instead we got a dog and pony show for the last forty years. What a waste of time and money. window for this is closing fast as the flat earthers are taking over the government and bankrupting the USA wake up people.

  2. Guillermo Santamaria on December 22, 2011 at 7:02 pm

    i agree. This is very significant.

  3. paul degagne on December 22, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    I remember hitchiking and coming across a large area just outside of Sudbury, Ontario that was mined and looked like the MOON.

    Some people from the area also said that they sent future USA-astronauts there to train.

    So if you want to know what life is like on the moon I suggest you take a little trip up to sudbury!

    A while back we heard about the United States declaring the moon
    to be a no-fly zone. If this is true then why would NASA work with a
    private company to develop its program to go to the moon in the very
    near future? Out of pure laziness on my part, I’ll add the first link I
    came to on this subject.

    And if NASA is working with these people then surely NASA has made
    certain they know about where the mid-way point to the moon is and
    allowed for that correction so their craft can land safely.

    We heard about this right here on Giza Death Star when Doc Farrell told
    us about Dr. Von Braun, or is it Brown, slipping up with that information
    during an interview way back when Apollo was just getting off the ground.

    Is that what smart folks call a pun? I didn’t mean one. Seems I’m out of space here.

  6. paul degagne on December 22, 2011 at 4:43 am

    Doctored photographs of the moon. I take it for granted they were fiddled with to prove whatever point the narrator wants to make or claim?

    While I was riding the boring-impersonal subway where nobody wants to even recognize each others’ presence. (Just pretend other people or your not there— all the vacant facial-expressions, it’s like no-one wants to acknowledge their most basic human presence or existence. Talk about proof of alienation, just step onto a subway car for two minutes and you will have all the proof you need!!!?)

    I was looking for something to occupy my mind for the 20 minute ride.

    I looked up at an ADVERTIZEMENT and sensed something ODD ABOUT IT so I continued to observe/SCAN the poster Marshall McLuhan style and I was in for a mild shock. It would require too much writing to describe what I witnessed but I learned McLuhan and others aren’t kidding when they talk about PERCEPTIONAL CHANGES and LINEAR PERSPECTIVE shifting during the Renassiance! (it kind of makes me wish I had been an Art Student instead?)

    I pointed out what I seen to my wife beside me and she just went on to say I was seeing things. I could have proved to her the validity of my perceptions if I had gotten a ruler and measured the proportions of the poster and body parts but that would have made me appear very ridiculous. (One cant really argue over another persons PERCEPTUAL SYSTEM. They see what they see and that’s all they see. A few short measurement of a normal or average ARM and NOSE compared to the measurements in the ad COULD HAVE PROVED THE VALIDITY OF MY OBSERVATION but NATHA (spelt wrong expression, means nothing) Does anyone want to realize SEEING ISN’T BELIEVING!

    It was an ad recruiting for students to enroll in a FOLK MUSIC INSTITUTE and the woman holding the guitar was really ELFISH for I never in my entire life seen anyone with a NOSE depicted in the poster quite like that. It wasn’t a human-nose. (I guess elves and magical singing or folk tales are popular themes of study for FOLK MUSIC?) (that was just one of the touch up. Let me tell you if you don’t already know it but there are some pretty clever people in Design. It amazes me all the TRICKERY that can go on in that field. It’s like MAGIC?)

    K if this dont get u out from under the rock I’ll give up: Der Herr Ratzinger sits on the council of 7. He balances the law of 2 opposite the lying Eve under the red cape. 4 are divided into two pairs. 2 vote with Eve and 2 with Papi. Who balances the scales to complete the law of three so that the 7 may remain lucky for even? Long live the Queen!
    Moral of the story: The Vatican knows a heck of a lot more than I/We see.

    Commented by a guy who ‘believes’ in Magick.

  10. thomas keystone on December 21, 2011 at 10:05 pm

    Do you believe in the afterlife, God, Angels and Deamons, reincarnation, the will of God or ‘what goes around comes around? How about synchronicity, intuition, providence, a sixth sense, premonition, destined to be, meant to be, remote viewing, out-of-body experiences, shamanism, animal spirits, numerology, Quaballah, tree of life, mercaba, hermetic teachings, Elysian fields, oracles and my very own favorite: do you believe there is such a thing as ball lightening?

  11. thomas keystone on December 21, 2011 at 9:53 pm

    I am curious: while you claim that you don’t believe in Magick, do you believe ETs exist?

    • paul degagne on December 22, 2011 at 4:16 pm

      I don’t know if it’s a question of ” BELIEF?????

      I’ve met some very strange people who seem to believe in themselves and convinced me they were authentic? They seem to be from SOMEPLACE ELSE and not of this Earth or Our Culture. People without a conscience strike me as such.

      So I guess believing ET’s EXIST isn’t too far a stretch of one’s fantastic IMAGINATION?

      If you consider dreaming at night a form of authentic experience then there probably ARE millions of people who have been (sic) ABDUCTED IN THERE SLEEP! (kind of like the old fashion meaning of the term Incubus)

      I probably am one of them abductees but if that is so I cant remember it. It probably was one of those dreams that failed to have an impact on my nervous system to where I felt motivated enough in the middle of the night to jot the experience down in my little notebook I keep by the nightstand. (Most of the time in the first moments or instants of coming to if we don’t record the dream it is forgotten and is gone with the wind!)

      In the world of DREAMLAND nothing is IMPOSSIBLE! (not entirely true —- for if you see something that you know is IMPOSSIBLE in a dream it is very likely you’ll FABRICATE THE EPISODE into terms that fair more of normal-cognition. It is very difficult to have a true grasp or perception of what we experience while asleep. LUCIDITY an Art!))

      I don’t know if that answers your question “Do I believe in ET’s?

      It seem a little bit of a moot point for if our ANCESTORS DNA has been FIDDLED WITH

      THEN IN A WAY ==== WE ALL ARE ETS!!!!!!!!!! (especially if you believe in Democrats or Republicans, ha, ha!)

    • paul degagne on December 23, 2011 at 6:58 am

      Mister Keystone — thank you for your remarks. i don’t know what gave you the impression I don’t believe in this word – Magic spelt with a ‘k’ which I hear is the latest fashion. For that matter I didn’t give the impression I do believe in a MAGIC or any OTHER such WORD? Maybe you felt my usual Agnostic nominalistic approach and drew some interpretations from that?

      Anyway, I am grateful for your comments for last night I experience a few unusual or not the average night-to-night banal dreams we all have and immediately forget. These two dreams were or SEEMED TO CLARIFY some of what I wrote about in my recent post and CLARIFICATION is always welcomed on my dream DOORSTEPS OR Thresholds.

      Also, I posted my amazement at an invention that can take a BILLION FRAMES a second. I was getting a bit carried away carried away by the possibilities such an invention may evoke! Upon awakening from sleep my Unconscious spoke to me through my sense of INTUITION ( of course the Unconscious is not limited or doesn’t need to use voices or sound for that matter to communicate like we all do).

      My Unconscious or Mind or whatever you want to call it (if not my mind then it would be interesting to find out whose it was but that is another story for another time?) sic – told me or more properly -speaking gave me the THOUGHT == Paul, it may be a BILLION frames a minute BUT it still only ONE FRAME AT A TIME or ONE AT A TIME.

      In other words — I cannot actually sense what that ANOMALOCARIS FOSSIL must have sensed or perceived with it’s 16,000 LENSES!!!!!! ( it would sure help in understanding what the NOTHINGNESS we call DREAM IMAGES ARE?)

    The Outer Space Treaty of 1967, ratified by 100 nations, including the United States, forbids countries from claiming sovereignty over any part of the moon, but does not prevent private companies from building or staking claims on the moon.

    It would seem that 3 people own a majority of the mineral rights not only on the moon but Mars as well:

    Here is a page regarding the Lunar Mineral Rights secured by Dr. Joseph Resnick, Lt. Col. Timothy R. O’Neill, Ph.D. (U.S. Army, Ret.) and Guy Cramer

    Excerpt from site:
    A loophole in Space Law allows individuals and companies to hold Mineral Rights on the Moon, Mars and other celestial bodies. Growing concern from Scientists that these rights may be held hostage have been alleviated by a three man North American team; Dr. Joseph Resnick, Dr. Timothy R. O’Neill and Guy Cramer (ROC-Resnick/O’Neill/Cramer team) who have acquired the mineral rights for 95% of the side of the moon that faces Earth, the polar regions and 50% of the far side of the moon.

    After setting aside 8.9 million acres around Apollo 11 Lunar landing site and designated as a “World Heritage Site”. The ROC team announced that it was holding more than 75% of the Lunar Mineral rights to allow for the extraction of Helium-3 and other minerals for the advancement of Space Exploration, Earth and Space Sciences and safer more efficient energy production.

    With the mineral rights secured, the ROC team wants to oversee the extraction process for He3 and other minerals for any robotic or human ventures to obtain these materials to ensure the Moon doesn’t become a series of scared surface mines visible from Earth or future lunar orbiting space stations. Visual Mitigation will be a priority so that the expected large scale strip mining doesn’t turn the moon into an eyesore for the rest of us.

    ROC has secured the mineral rights to the following sites on the Moon; the first region is designated as a preserve.

    This one for Mars

    Food for thought.

      “The Outer Space Treaty of 1967, ratified by 100 nations, including the United States, forbids countries from claiming sovereignty over any part of the moon, but does not prevent private companies from building or staking claims on the moon…”
      Hilarious, if no country can claim sovereignty then no country’s land recording system can give clear title (and no court system can enforce their property rights). Oh boy (from another one of their sites)
      “Universal Mineral Leases Corporation has established the Universal Mineral Leases Registry and is now offering Exclusive Mineral Leases to certain selected parcels which have been identified and mapped by NASA, to its Members.”

      I really really hope they aren’t out collecting money from rubes. There are state anti-fraud laws that apply to this that have a very appropriate nickname— blue sky laws. to quote a 1910 US Supreme Court opinion (Hall v Geiger-Jones Co):
      “The name that is given to the law indicates the evil at which it is aimed, that is, to use the language of a cited case, “speculative schemes which have no more basis than so many feet of ‘blue sky'”; or, as stated by counsel in another case, “to stop the sale of stock in fly-by-night concerns, visionary oil wells, distant gold mines and other like fraudulent exploitations.” Even if the descriptions be regarded as rhetorical, the existence of evil is indicated, and a belief of its detriment; and we shall not pause to do more than state that the prevention of deception is within the competency of government and that the appreciation of the consequences of it is not open for our review.”

    Wrong Citizen! The information that lead to temporary supremacy by the Nazis came from ‘supernatural’ sources you can’t begin to imagine. This source changed ‘horses’ because of ‘disobedience’ by the Nazis. Hitler was empowered for reasons very few can currently understand but allow me to suggest that mere mortals would certainly consider those who ‘inspired’ the Nazis (or the Black Nobility such as the Haus von Gotha for that matter) to be beings with God like powers. There is not a single matter/occurrence that has or ever will take place on earth which they could not control if they would so choose. It is what you know as the biblical ‘free will’ which informs their activity not anything you and I could imagine!

    What if ‘the ‘financial elite’ already control all powers on earth in which they have an interest – including China, NKorea, Iran and Venezuela. The only country ‘important’ to Americans which they don’t control is Cuba and only because Cuba has no value to them. The entire global financial upheaval is a byproduct of a change in ‘headquarters’ to China. A change necessitated by the internet. That is why Goggle was forced to accept Chinese restrictions. The internet is making it more difficult every day to pull the wool over the eyes of even the least educated Americans. Chinese also have a ‘mentality’ which makes them easier to control then Anglo-Saxons. In the light of historical mega events which we can be all but certain were controlled by families such as den Rotschildtern, I am personally at a loss to what extent you seem to underestimate the Black Nobility. Congress may not plan past the next election cycle but they plan decades ahead!?! Do you write your own books? If you don’t, do you at least read them? You seem to believe that there was a ‘War of the gods’ and the ‘Elite’ are their agents. You even go so far as consider yourself to be ‘property” What ‘mistakes’ do you think could be made by masters of time and space that you could possibly recognize as such. If there was or is such a one as RA do you really think you could second guess him/it/them? All these volumes of ‘intelligent’ books and you have still no clue!!!

  16. MQ on December 21, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    OK, sort of on-topic, did anyone catch last night’s program on History channel 2 (via AT&T u-verse)? They were talking about space weapons, but I tuned in on the part where they were “hypothetically” talking about a “separatist colony” on the moon and the physics of how a rocket/missile would obliterate any underground base they had there.

    Fox News, the New York Times and Oprah Winfrey have all said the Moon is made of cheese. These guys would just be wasting their time.

      I hope the moon isn’t made of green-cheeze. I hate the taste of it but that welfare cheese they use to dish out was OK and nutritious to boot even if it didn’t have holes in it!

      All this debate about MOON BASES reminds me of UNEMPLOYED INTELLECTUALS following a form of SCHOLASTICISM arguing about “HOW MANY ANGELS CAN DANCE ON THE HEAD OF A PIN.” (just transcribe the word MOON-BASES for ANGELS and the argument would be very similar in FORM or STRUCTURE?

      Somebody around here has mucho time on their hands?
