Many regular readers here sent me versions of this story, and I'd like to thank them all for drawing our attention to it, for here, as always, I suspect there's more going on than meets the eye. Here's one version of the story:

A start-up's race to harvest the moon's treasures

Once again, we're being told that the wealth of riches to be mined on the Moon is the only motivation for going there, beyond, of course, the usual "stepping-stone-to-Mars" meme:

In a race against global superpowers, Moon Express — a private venture founded by billionaire entrepreneur Naveen Jain, space technology guru Dr. Barney Pell and space futurist Dr. Bob Richards — has cleared a path for private U.S . companies looking to explore and commercialize space.

Today the company is the first private enterprise in history to receive U.S. government approval to travel beyond Earth's orbit and undertake a deep space mission. The goal: to land a robotic spacecraft on the moon's surface in 2017 and analyze and explore its valuable resources that can be used on Earth.

The moon is a treasure chest that has vast amounts of iron ore, water, rare Earth minerals and precious metals, as well as carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen and helium-3, a gas that can be used in future fusion reactors to provide nuclear power without radioactive waste. Experts concur that the value of these resources are in the trillions of dollars.

But there's a catch here, and it leaped off the page at me, but first, a few "Moon Landing" facts: if one wants to land on the moon, one must select an appropriate landing site, and that requires some extensive mapping of the surface, and planning. So the first question this raises to my mind is: have these private companies already secretly launched satellites to do so? Or have they entered into private and hidden arrangements with the various governments that have had lunar surveying and mapping missions?

I suspect the latter is the order of the day, and that there are such hidden agreements already worked out. Here's why (and herewith the part of the article that leaped out at me):

Already, Moon Express has six payloads on its manifest for its first mission, planned for the second half of next year. According to Moon Express CEO Richards, customers include Google Lunar X Prize; the International Lunar Observatory; Celestis; and a partnership between the University of Maryland and the National Laboratories of Frascati, Italy.

The mission will be a baseline where a camera will be set up to take photos and video. According to Richards, the International Lunar Observatory plans to put a "mooncam" (a small astronomical observatory) accessible on the internet on the moon's surface. Google plans to provide access to these images through YouTube — democratizing information about this important celestial body.

The company also expects NASA will send one or two payloads on the first Moon Express mission, Richards said. Dr. Christopher McKay, an astrobiologist at NASA Ames Research Center who is involved in planning for future Mars missions, has expressed interest in sending an incubated mustard seed plant to the moon to see how plants can be gestated in lunar gravity and radiation. (Emphases added)

Photos? Live video streaming? For those of us (myself included in this group) who suspect that there is "artificial stuff" up there, based on analysis of old Russian and American satellite and later Apollo photographs (think only of the "Blair cuspids" here), this revelation implies three different scenarios might be in play.

The first of these is that the "era of secrecy" might be drawing to a close, as technology makes the Moon more accessible, it also makes it increasingly difficult to keep such things hidden and secret. Indeed, just as the New World was known to Europe long before the staged "discovery" of it by Columbus, one might be looking at a similar scenario here: corporations may be tasked with "lifting the veil" on the subject.

The second of these is the exact reverse, for by going to the government for tacit approval of the plans, the one thing that easily would enter into the mix is a "national security rider" in any arrangements that have been worked out, including an "override" on live feeds that might "see something" that "they" do not wish to be seen. Add to this, of course, the additional consideration that the best way to keep a secret is to make it proprietary, a private corporate one, rather than a government one. It is interesting in this respect to recall the NASA experimentts in extending the internet to an interplanetary basis; after all, with national security involved, one has to have that "interplanetary internet kill switch."

The third of these possibilities stands somewhere in between: if one is looking for a "national sponsor" of a corporate event such as this, then one "shops around" for the "best deal" with the various space-faring nations, and here, I suspect, we're watching the emergence of what I've been arguing in recent blogs: with the "global project" under serious assault on Earth (think only of the BREXIT or Trump phenomena), then space presents itself as a tailor-made way to create genuine global institutions.

Or as Holmes used to say to Watson, the game is afoot.

See you on the flip side...

    According to Daniel (who claims to have worked in the black ops), the NWO were turfed off the moon.

    Anonymous5: Different sources claim a secret space program exists with highly advanced technologies including bases on the moon and Mars and nearly instantaneous ways to get there. This contradicts Daniel’s statement re Alternative 3 that we are “not going anywhere else, any time soon.” Sounds like the globalists already have?

    DANIEL: …. *Alternative 3*
    Now to the fun stuff! If you were NASA, the New World Order or the Cabal and knew this was going to happen … but did not know the specifics because you listened to conventional scientists with their backwards stellar evolution, what would you be likely to do?

    How about to hit up the world scientists for some “Alternatives” on how to survive… like 3 of them? And what did they come up with?

    1. Use nuclear weapons to blow holes in the upper atmosphere to let the increasing heat out,
    2. Create huge, underground cities to live in until the sun stabilized, or
    3. Get the heck off of Earth.

    ….. Alternative 3 was still the best bet, as they could leave the dregs of society behind and start their new Utopia without mutant humans running around. They were thinking the moon was an empty rock with no atmosphere, but when they got there, there was an atmosphere and also a sizable population. Just not a Terran one, and they did not want mankind joining them. It took some negotiating to do an official landing on the moon and they only agreed to places that were in the middle of the lunar “nowhere,” like landing on Earth in the middle of the Sahara desert. The NWO, like the aggressive, uncaring folks they are, tried to force the situation to make bases on the moon, regardless, then found out these folks had some “big, honkin’ space guns”—and told humanity to get off the moon and don’t come back. So the moon was out.

    Just curious why the simple fact that anyone wishing to leave Earths orbit as stated to go beyond this orbit must have US government approval as this is an interesting point all by itself and has not been asked about it has just been accepted as fact that one would have to ask them.

    Or is this the old outdated concept that in July 1969 they stuck a flag on the Luna surface and thereby claiming it is theirs now.

    Reminds me of those guys from Europe sticking a flag in Silver Turtle Island and then claiming it was theirs and named it after those two brothers captains on the other ships that went with Columbus 1492 now what was heir name oh yes America.

    Just saying is all besides they were not the first there or the first to do surface or other such mining there we all know that right this will be interesting to see how this turns out for them.

    But really the very idea that they had to seek their permission says so much right or is it just me no worries found the hypocrisy of this by its very nature awesome with such ramification that once others understand the implications of such a simple statement will perhaps take offense at this one can only hope right?

    Just them being the ones to be giving hall monitor passes to even leave this rock when many will want to get away once people find out the planet is due to be hit by a planet killer solar flare in a few years we all know about that here sure if not you do now oops.

    Staggering Corruption Reveals NATO/NASA ‘Lies’ At The Heart Of The Pentagon

    “Meanwhile, some space station activity seems to have been filmed in big pools that contain replicas of outer space technology. And it has been speculated that green screens are used as well, here.

    We recently reported on the lunar rover itself, which looks suspiciously like a jeep, here, though it cost some $40 million to develop.”

    I think it’s time I start another company and a Go Fund Me donation account to compete with this company.

    Sure you can go to the moon, that’s easy. But how are you going to get that D9 bulldozer up there, oh and how are you going to get all that tonnage of maaterial back here? This all theatre and wind.

  6. DanaThomas on August 10, 2016 at 12:42 pm

    Well I would opt for N. 3. Russia and the newer space powers are somewhat (though not excessively) forthcoming with new data on what is “out there”, and there is no stopping the leaks. But it is the “Moon charter” that raises questions. It brings to mind the East Indies model. But instead of being assigned to one of the usual oligarchical families – who are probably lurking in the background anyway – the choice has fallen on a rather singular gentleman. Here is just one tidbit from Wikipedia: “In 2003, Jain co-founded Intelius across the street from Infospace. The company sold background information on individuals”; this line of business reminds me of something…. During his somewhat rollercoaster career he always seems to have come out on top. If (or when) something goes wrong with robots or whatever, the business side could be held accountable for real or imagined misdemeanours.
    But there is something even you did not mention, Joseph: what if this “approval”, is associated with a secret treaty? And who might the parties to such a treaty be?

  7. loisg on August 10, 2016 at 11:48 am

    I vote for option one. We’ve had the communist threat, the nations of concern, the terrorist threat, and now we are openly gearing up for the asteroid threat, so what was the final one? The threat of aliens, and in order to convince people that we need to build up our military for that purpose, the people need to see it as a real threat to their security. So voila, a camera on the moon. Why else would one put a video camera there, if the only thing to see was rocks?

    • Guygrr on August 10, 2016 at 3:03 pm

      Very good point. Place a camera, stage a visit from some entities, and ta da threat manufactured.

      • Blue Dragon Lord on August 16, 2016 at 2:40 pm

        The only problem with that is the treat is real enough Earth has been ready and primed for an invasion for years as under the treaty of 1953 some aliens were given cart blanch to abduct humans to find out all of their weaknesses sadly a fact.

        As ‘loisg’ above has quoted the Von Braun pointers for world domination perfectly i can only agree but who will be the real controlling party is another question.

        Some other interested parties out there may also object to such a violation of the freedoms of the general public no matter what giant egos may think on this matter watch and wait other treaties may have been signed and broken.

        Who knows the ordinary citizens may be deemed worth saving they only have to ask given the freedom of choice factor that still applies or has the survival instinct of humans all but gone now with other such liberties.

        We shall stand or you will fall makes sense and is so true if but you knew pure speculation at this point but that is also encouraged here as i see this clearly too?

    Space: The final corporate frontier to exploit and plunder.
    To explore and profit from new markets,
    to seek out new life and civilizations to place in debt peonage,
    to boldly go to where no one has profited before.

    • WalkingDead on August 10, 2016 at 2:04 pm

      LOL, I have my doubts about that. Weren’t we supposedly engineered as a slave race to serve our manufacturers. For all we know, we may still be serving them.

      • Blue Dragon Lord on August 16, 2016 at 2:52 pm

        Well if one believes such liars as the original source those Annunaki even said they were gods as i recall that was not true either.

        Free thinkers can never be slaves all of the freedoms shall be held as sacred free in mind body and soul and as this was a former colony and not theirs by the way they may have melted the ice caps and caused the flood way back and even after knowing that fact still got to make treaties with fools.

        Others still feel they have an obligation to help and stand by you keep the faith and have hope it will guide you to the right way of thinking perhaps who knows right.

    Coming here to check on the latest “strange stuff” as a regular cerebral exercise regimen, an idea popped up as I remembered your difficulties to handle all the emails you receive daily Dr. Farrell. My suggestion is why not ask for help? …From any of your regulars or members or both who would be glad to volontarily take upon themselves a particular subject or topic as part of this burden. To collect and compile articles, papers, videos or the like data to send to you in bulk or already kind of catalogued. Wouldn’t it make this readier for you to jump in to do do what you do best? Google+ or Dropbox would certainly then come handy. Just a suggestion.

  10. marcos toledo on August 10, 2016 at 11:07 am

    In other words welcome to slaves in space. Only problem is what will the others out there have to say about that. I doubt they will sit on the ass as our plutocrats rampage through space looting, torturing as we’ve done on Earth.

    • Blue Dragon Lord on August 16, 2016 at 3:09 pm

      There are already some 700,000 slaves from Earth on Mars taken there by those allies of the shadow men or elites near the north pole one of the old trading posts of the Maldekians 18,000 years ago long story.

      Some ninety races of aliens have report this to those running down the planet are the problem so they did not care when this sad news had been documented and shown to them what more can we do your own governments have sanctioned this others cannot not interfer this reply is always this is your domain and affair so fix it then as that is so wrong really.

      Fact not fiction by the way just saying it is already happening not going to as in a future event.

  11. WalkingDead on August 10, 2016 at 8:01 am

    Corporate control of space seems to be a common meme in most recent science fiction, as well. You find it in the Alien series, Prometheus, Outlander, etc. This would be a form of TPP on steroids.
    Since the creation of the central banks, all governments are now deeply indebted to the privately owned banks through their fiat money Ponzi scheme. In reality the bankers and global corporations are the only ones who can actually afford to undertake the exploration of space at this time. If you control space, you control Earth and any of the other moons/planets you care to “claim”; as well as anything else you might find there along the way. In essence, they would be the only game in town and its their ball, their rules, and they are the ones supposedly in possession of the technology.
    Just as we the people have surrendered our control over our corrupt governments; our corrupt governments have surrendered their regulation and control over the corporations; through that corruption those corporations are now exerting control over our governments; which, in turn, gives them control over we the people.
    The world, it would seem, is upside down.

  12. Kahlypso on August 10, 2016 at 7:25 am

    Didnt the Spanish Crown make the expeditions to the ‘new world’ privately owned expeditions as well? Looked what happened when those philanthropist privateers turned up in South America.. I really don’t know why.. But I feel that this article might be involved in the ‘recent’ speeding up of ‘Let’s get to Space’..

  13. chris on August 10, 2016 at 7:13 am

    I trust Google to censor the Youtube lunar video feed just as readily as the Gov., if not more so. 🙁
    Moon Express should host the video themselves.

  14. Curt on August 10, 2016 at 6:15 am

    A ‘mustard seed’ plant, eh? A certain parable springs immediately to mind…

    Matthew 13:31-32 New International Version (NIV)

    The Parable of the Mustard Seed

    “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. 32 Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.”
