HAPPY 50th Year Anniversary of the Moon Landing HOAX!!! -- Watch Apollo 17's Lunar Module blastoff? (Skip to 2:50) I'd love to know who was filming this... by Tom_Bombadil in space

What catches my attention is the lack of any latency in communication from the earth to the moon. I've had satellite internet in the past and communication to the satellite was at least 500ms or a half second, and that was satellite down and land line up (terrible service - never get satellite internet unless it's your only option).

Here's an article skeptical of the moon landings: The Apollo Moon Hoax - The Audio Delay Problem: Earth-Moon Delay: Wrong?

the Earth-Moon distance is approximately 241,000 miles, or 1.26x the speed of light. This means that any audio/visual transmissions would have to have at LEAST a 1.26 second DELAY in first the transmit direction, and a further 1.26 second DELAY in the receive direction back on Earth. This 2.52+ second (minimum) delay does not also incorporate other factors, like the time for the full context of the message to be sent, then diagnosed by the human brain, and finally responded by the "Astronauts" as a verbal reply.

The article also brings up the problem of the radiation in the Van Allen belt:

The problem that NASA has always had, and what I learned early on, was space radiation. The existing technology of the 1960's could not properly shield any Astronauts from first the deadly radiation they would encounter in the Van Allen Radiation Belts, and secondly from the deadly radiation in both interstellar space and on the moon itself! What happened in the 1960's was that the government and NASA both realized that they could not solve the radiation problem, and therefore meet JFK's desire to land a man on the moon by 1971. Rather than admit defeat, they decided to fake the entire Moon missions through a clandestine operation called the Apollo Simulation Project (ASP).

South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc., 585 U.S. ___ (2018), was a United States Supreme Court case in which the court held by a 5-4 majority that states may charge tax on purchases made from out-of-state sellers, even if the seller does not have a physical presence in the taxing state.

Judge, jury & executioner: Facebook policy permits death threats against ‘dangerous individuals’ by fred_red_beans in news

Mueller’s charges against Concord Management & Consulting, the Russian company accused of running a “troll farm” and “sowing discord” on US social media in 2016, do not establish a link between that private company and the Russian government, US District Judge Dabney L. Friedrich pointed out.

Yet the special counsel’s much-publicized final report claims to have “established” and “confirmed” Russian government activities based in part on the indictment against Concord, which is a breach of prosecutorial rules, Friedrich said.

For example, Mueller’s report says that Concord CEO Yevgeny Prigozhin “is widely reported to have ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.” That’s an assertion, not evidence.

This should be the final nail in the coffin of ‘Russiagate,’ but it won’t be, Jatras added. Too many people in Washington have invested too much in Russiagate to admit they were ever wrong.

Divide & Conquer -- Don't be played, Left and Right by Jesus in conspiracy

[–]fred_red_beans 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Absolutely! We are all being played by all the media all the time.

A big problem is that people get their understanding of reality from media and "authoritative" sources, instead of listening to a wide array of sources, considereing contrary viewpoints, and forming their own opinions. News these days has all the opinions you need prepackaged and repeated over and over for your convenience. No need to read or understand those pesky details or listen to facts, all the conclusions are already there - prepared just for you and whichever team you're on.

We're all human beings, racism in in 2019 is a largely a contrivance of the media to get the non-eliete, the 99%, to fight amongst themselves. I think the majority of people are actually on the compassionate side and would help another regardless of skin color. I think even a child can see that a persons skin color, just as their eye color, doesn't make them any less of a human being.

Although, there are people who do think there are lesser humans, and those people really don't care about skin color. They just want control and power, and people keep going along with it. I guess if you don't have a mind to question then you don't have a mind to fathom the alternative.

The chakra system is used by Hinduists, Buddhists, practitioners of Yoga, it's a widely used eastern system.

I've glanced at your Stoicist info, and I relate to that as having some healthy detachment.

I believe that our lives are pretty small and that our consciousness does not cease upon death of this earthy body, we just get a new different one. So I believe in reincarnation, but I also believe there are different levels of reality. A larger view of reality helps me not be so attached.

I think that by being aware in the moment we can gain clarity of our surroundings and mainly ourselves. By being aware, we can evaluate our actions instead of letting our own tendencies run on auto pilot. While it's important to have acceptance of things that have happened or certain realities, we don't have to stagnate in anger or self pity etc - as to to so only plants the seeds of that negativity within ourselves, and we will reap what we we sow even if it's just our own internal thinking.

While it's rare for an individual to remember past lives, I believe that our emotional, psychological, and spiritual progress can carry over.

Appreciate your posts Sancho.

The whole Oregon Democrat vs GOP deal is just partisanship on overdrive. In my opinion, engaging in the whole left vs right paradigm is just disparaging yourself. Making generalizations and and assumptions of a persons ideas and beliefs based on what side they are thought to be on is just stupid. Saidit is here to give people a chance to express themselves, but if you're just here to label someone a commie or alt-right winger because something they said made you think they were on one side or the other, IMHO you only make a fool of yourself. It's divide and conquer. Personally, as an individual, I don't care about democrats or repbulicans or the left or the right. I make my own decisions based on the information I think is relevant, and try to listen to dissenting point of views.

The propaganda from the MSM is so blatant, but they hold little to no credibility as far as I'm concerned. Just as the US's credibility in the middle east was lost many decades ago. To say that the US has to respond to the downing of a drone to maintain credibility in the middle east is just an excuse to either actually start a war with Iran or perhaps to rattle war sabers to distract or keep minds focused on war.

Yep, you're right, it's easier when both "opposing" sides are controlled, which they are. This story boils down to abortion as well, which is just a divisional topic as it is. There are always going to be those who are for and against abortion and it's an easy topic to get people to argue with each other about. Still, everyone should have the right to express their opinion either way. I believe censorship, whether exposed by controlled opposition or not, is worth noting as it degrades our ability to communicate with each other and at the very least understand each other.

I think one of the reasons for Russiagate was to distract people with good intentions, to guide the narrative away from Lybia and certainly the DNC's corrupt way of appointing Hillary over Sanders.

I was aware of the South Korean political scandal, but was under the impression it was mainly due to corruption and had not heard of an occult link.

The father Choi Tae-min:

was the leader of a South Korean cult combining elements of Buddhism, Christianity, and traditional Korean Shamanism[1]. Choi, originally a Buddhist monk, then a convert to Roman Catholicism, was married six times. He was the mentor of the impeached South Korean president, Park Geun-hye (the daughter of former president Park Chung-hee), until his death in 1994. He allegedly used his relationship with Park to solicit bribes from government officials and businessmen.

Icelanders refused to bail out their banks and jailed some of the CEO behind the failure. Their economy took a big hit, but GDP doubled since 2011

The US should have never bailed out the banks. When you fail in capitalistic business you're not supposed to get bailed out by the tax payers only to then give yourself huge bonuses.

Much of the fake main stream news is about narrative control so that the people in high places don't have the "problems" like South Korea and Iceland.
