Nobel President, Less Than ‘Noble’ Moon Crash

When I first heard this this morning, I thought it was a joke.

But no, it ain’t. The Big O is a Nobel Prize winner for Peace, despite continuing to prosecute Bu$hco Wars and maintaining 737 military bases that make up the American Federal Empire.

The Obamanator isn’t a globalist and isn’t controlled by the Bilderberg agenda eh?

Yeah, and I’ve got a submarine to sell ya in Arizona too mac!

I thought that this was a hoax, and that, if I left it alone for an hour, all the media will have to admit that they got punked by 4chan or something similar… Nope. It’s real.

And, well, why not? Obama is only perpetuating two illegal wars and a global network of 737 military bases.

President Obama was awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday.

The first African-American to win the White House, Obama was praised by the Norwegian Nobel Committee for “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”

“Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future,” the committee said. “His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population.”

The committee also said Obama has “created a new climate in international politics.”

The announcement came as a surprise — Obama’s name had not been mentioned among front-runners — and the roomful of reporters in Oslo, Norway, gasped when he was named.

In his short time in office, Obama has acted on a wide range of issues from the economy to terrorism and wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Hmm..remember the NASA mission to crash a rocket stage and a probe into a crater on the Moon named LCROSS? The theorized result was supposed to be a plume 6 miles high so the incoming probe could detect water.

Well, guess what? No plume, no flashes.

No nuthin’.

Even the mainstream media is asking why.

A pair of NASA spacecraft smashed into the moon at twice the speed of a bullet, as part of a mission aimed at blasting up signs of water ice.

Pictures of the impact zone were beamed back live to Earth, but the video imagery did not show any signs of a flash.

“It’s hard to tell what we saw there,” said Michael Bicay, director of science at NASA’s Ames Research Center in California.

The first crash took place at 7:31 a.m. ET. That’s when an empty rocket that weighed 2.2 tons hit the crater Cabeus. It was expected to create a crater about 66 feet (20 meters) wide, which is half the length of an Olympic pool. The blast should have kicked up a plume of lunar debris about six miles (10 kilometers) high.

Scientists hoped an analysis of the debris would confirm the theory that water — a key resource if people are going to go back to the moon — is hidden below the barren moonscape.

Trailing behind the rocket was the lunar probe LCROSS, short for Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite and pronounced L-Cross. For four minutes, the LCROSS shepherding spacecraft sent Earth live pictures of the rocket stage’s expected impact zone in multiple wavelengths — and then plunged into the crater itself.

Telescopes focus on crash site
Telescopes around the world — including the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope — aimed their cameras at the moon to capture views of the dust-up.

At least one telescope team, at the MMT Observatory in Arizona, reported spotting a bright debris plume. The visible-light images sent back by LCROSS itself showed no sign of such a plume, although Bicay noted that evidence of a crash did turn up in thermal imagery.

LCROSS project manager Dan Andrews said it was possible that the lighting was bad for the spacecraft’s images, and that those images needed to be tweaked to make the debris plume easier to see. The raw images could have been essentially “gray against black,” he said.

“What matters for us is: What is the nature of the stuff that was kicked up going in?” Andrews said. “All nine instruments were working fine and we received good data.”

NASA still claims success of course, but if they were so successful, where were the up to date readings the probe was supposed to be taking on the way down?

NASA – Never A Straight Answer.
