NASA under Obama: "John F. Kennedy must be spinning in his grave"

Rebel Staff
 

Remember when Obama asked his new NASA administrator to "reach out to the Muslim world to make them feel good about their historic contribution to science and engineering"?

What did that accomplish?

Thanks to Obama, NASA doesn't even have the ability to put someone in space anymore: US astronauts have to hitch rides with the Russians -- and learn Russian in order to do so.

With tensions between the US and Russia at a high over Ukraine, how smart is that arrangement?

These days, NASA's website is littered with juvenile global warming propaganda and other political messages.

How far the space agency has fallen since it put a man on the moon in 1969.

Got one thing wrong there Ezra. Obama never mothballed the Shuttle fleet. That was decided years before he became president. In fact, it was said back in 1981 that the shuttles were never intended to last beyond about 25 years. What Obama DID do was scrap the Constellation project, the shuttle’s replacement, making sure that the USA could not send it’s own astronauts into orbit but now have to hitch a ride with the Ruskies.

And that’s the sad truth of it…. Whereas hundreds, and I stress “hundreds” of years ago, the Arab culture produced mathematicians, astronomers, botanists, and physicians, it has been in a cultural dead-end vortex ever since… If it wasn’t for “oil” today they would be no more of an influence on the world stage than, say, the Polynesians, who were masters of ocean navigation… But the Arabs were superb slave traders, and still are…

I quit reading too soon. Was it only algebra they introduced? Somehow I thought they’d gone farther… even if it was over 1000 years ago that this was invented…

Too bad I can’t edit my comments after I post them… damn.

Calculus.

But I think that was pretty much it…

If it doesn’t subvert America and/or America’s allies, Obama isn’t interested in it. Such was the old NASA. It was good for America and her allies. Therefore Obama had it transformed into an AGW scam propaganda arm.

NASA is now over run with faux scientists, who genuflect at the altar of man made global warming. This new age religion has all but destroyed the organization. All that is left, is the name, and historic documents and video, of a once vibrant and meaningful organization. So very sad. It was easy for Obama to re-task NASA, after he gutted it. Bush started the Constellation program, which was supposed to put people on the moon in 3 years time from now. Obama gutted that, because it was started by Bush. That program was to be the jumping off point for manned Mars missions. Obama gutted that too, because it was started by Bush. So Obama put his stamp on NASA, and made it an outreach social welfare, feel good, do nothing, activist haven. One that caters to Muslims so they can feel good about themselves as they rush toward the middle ages, and global warming activists. So very very sad!

Very sad but, in the end, people get the government they deserve. Alberta voted NDP but to talk to any Albertan today, it was the other guy. The same could be said about the Ontario Liberals. Nobody will admit they voted for them, yet the same unions who put Wynne in power are railing against her because she pretended to tighten the purse strings. In the end, all of the public sector unions will have their demands met and Granny Wynne will do what she always does, throw up her hands and say “I had no choice!”

What the hell? NASA’s supposed to do what? I think I may be in the twilight Zone. None of that even makes any sense! The only thing NASA is supposed to reach out to is; The sky, space, maybe some aliens. That makes about as much sense as the current “United Nations”. How can you NOT see conspiracy in stuff like this?

The agenda of Obama, Turn the USA into a third world country, controlled by the Dogma of Islam. He is allowing millions of Muslims to enter America, without background checks. He will import these people, with no thought as to their ability to work or become useful Citizens.

Canada should be laying a mile wide fence of Razor Wire, all along the Canada, US boarder. Not that this will do any good.

Should Trudeau or Mulcair become the next PM, we all will be praying to Allah, for help. Help would mean, not Being Buried alive, just a nice clean Beheading.

Algebra. Thanks Maurice! I knew that there had to be something other than the ‘body bag’.

The irony of America’s space exploration demise, since standing first on the moon, is not lost on many older generation Americans going into the 2016 election… The first presidential candidate that lays out a cogent plan for putting NASA back into the game would have a lot of sympathetic ears…

Peter Babich said “Name one contribution to science or humanity that the Muslim world has presented”…. Algebra! That’s pretty much it! Algebra was part of a treatise written by Persian mathematician, Muhammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī in 820 AD. The word “algebra” is derived from the Arabic word, “Al-Jabr”. The exact meaning of the word, Al-Jabr, is unknown. I don’t know what else they ever did, except conquer neighboring peoples, kill them and engage in pedophilia with their captured sex slaves. Oh, one more thing, they somehow managed to get those algebraic equations included on my high school math exam; another reason to harbor animosity towards Islam.

I think it’s around 2 peace prizes compared to 270 for distinguished recognition awards

Now compare Islams contribution to society compared to Israelis

Peter. Islam invented the zero “0”. Which is rather poetic, since it’s what they’ve gravitated to becoming!!
So much for Lefty’s being “into science”!!

@ Kenneth Lawrence -said – “Americans elected a socialist loser President and now they are dependent on their adversary Russia for access to space for their astronauts. Kennedy isn’t just spinning in his grave, he is vomiting in his grave thinking about Obama.”

Wait until this happens in Canada

If the human species is to survive we must one day migrate to other planets .Our earth and the sun that sustains life have a shelve life and we humans will perish if we don’t reach out to new worlds of possibilities .
Free interprise will propel us forward and upward if the will to do so is strong enough.

Name one contribution to science or humanity that the Muslim world has presented.
commented 2015-10-05 22:21:43 -0400
I covered several shuttle launches for a local paper and the most heart breaking thing was to talk to the people who worked on the programme and hear their frustration. They knew that ‘we’ should be moving out from this planet but they also knew that the stupid man in the White House was determined to kill the programme and turn America from a country that embraced the words ‘Boldly go’ into a country that embraced welfare.

Another great American institution sabotaged by Obama!

NASA instructed to “reach out to the Muslim world to make them feel good about their historic contribution to science and engineering”? Really? Go around the world and see what became of the civilizations that rejected allah – Qur’an. Ruins. Incumbent on them to destroy ancient buildings, artifacts, etc because that shows the judgement and power of allah. For example:
