Obama cuts US space program, orders NASA to work with Muslim countries

Who says terrorism doesn’t work?

Obama’s Budget Cuts NASA’s Moon Project

In his budget proposal, President Barack Obama is doing away with the $100 billion plan to return astronauts to the moon.

On its Web site, the White House Budget Office says the program to send astronauts to the moon is behind schedule, over budget and overall less important than other space investments.

A more important space investment is of course, pandering to Muslim countries.

NASA plans more outreach to Muslim countries

NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden said Tuesday that President Barack Obama has asked him to “find ways to reach out to dominantly Muslim countries” as the White House pushes the space agency to become a tool of international diplomacy.

“In addition to the nations that most of you usually hear about when you think about the International Space Station, we now have expanded our efforts to reach out to non-traditional partners,” said Bolden, speaking to a lecture hall of young engineering students.

Specifically, he talked about connecting with countries that do not have an established space program and helping them conduct science missions. He mentioned new opportunities with Indonesia, including an educational program that examines global climate change.

We really like Indonesia because the State Department, the Department of Education [and] other agencies in the U.S. are reaching out to Indonesia as the largest Muslim nation in the world. We would love to establish partners there,” Bolden said.

Coincidentally, Obama (aka Barry Soetoro, aka the Jakarta street kid) went to school in Indonesia. Once again Obama puts the Muslim world ahead of Americans. hat tip @dominionpundit

Updates: 23,000 now expected to lose jobs after shuttle retirement

The local economic forecast tied to President Barack Obama’s proposed NASA budget keeps growing bleaker.

Revised projections now show that about 23,000 workers at and around Kennedy Space Center will lose their jobs because of the shuttles’ retirement and the new proposal to cancel the development of new rockets and spacecraft.

That sum includes 9,000 “direct” space jobs and — conservatively speaking — 14,000 “indirect” jobs at hotels, restaurants, retail stores and others that depend on activity at the space center, said Lisa Rice, Brevard Workforce president.

  1. Once again, Obama does something that actually encourages our enemies to attack us, by seeing us as weak. This guy is turning out to be another Jimmy Carter, only with more radical cabinet appointments.

  2. If you ever believed this was a natural born non-muslim instead of a multifaced, closet terrorist, you need to keep tuned.
    I doubt he has ever told the truth about anything. He must be making Adolf Hitler proud.

  3. Don,

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m no fan of Obama, but I do not see sufficient evidence to believe that he is not really a natural born U.S citizen. As for Obama being a closet terrorists, I know about his friendship with Airs, but what evidence do we have that Obama is part of the Stealth Jihad?

  4. Damien,

    The reason you don’t see “sufficient evidence” to prove that Obama is not a natural born (or even A) US citizen is that Obama has spent nearly $2 million (and counting) keeping the relevant documents from public view.

    This includes his long-form birth certificate (not the “cert. of live birth” that anyone can get by walking in off the street carrying a baby, and is not enough documentation to get you a driver’s license in New Jersey); his college records showing what kind of a scholarship he went on (and who paid — was it as a foreign student?); his passport records (how did he travel to Pakistan when US citizens were forbidden to — on an Indonesian passport?); etc. etc.

    Generally you don’t spend millions of dollars to hide documents that show you in a good light! It is impossible (if you are honest with yourself) not to wonder what he is hiding.

    Undoubtedly, there are people and groups who DO have access to (some of) these documents, and O is at risk of (or, more probably, is) being blackmailed by them.

    I only hope one of said groups is US military Intel.

  6. BobC,

    That sounds more like a conspiracy theory to me than evidence that Obama was not really born in the states, and thus his presidency would be illegal. He had a certificate of live birth that showed that he was born in Hawaii. Now unless you can prove that certificate of live birth was forged, you have no case. Also what about Hillary Clinton? Might she have benefited, if there was any good reason to think he was not really born in the states? Think about it, if Obama was not a natural born U.S citizen, he would not be eligible for the presidency, thus leaving the democratic candidacy open to Hillery. Think about that, think about the benefit to her. Also from what I hear even Ann Coulter, thinks that you birthers are full of nonsense, and she just love eviscerating liberals. She’s not the world’s most reliable source by far, but still she of all people would love to be able to use something like that agianst the democrats. Plus if it were true that Obama was not really born in the states, and it was proven at this point it would cause a constitutional crisis. So any claim that he was not really born on American soil needs sufficient evidence to back it up, not just some suspicious behavior on behalf of Obama. Right now the claim that he is not a natural born U.S citizen is a an extraordinary claim, and as they say in the skeptical movement extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

  7. I would like to find out more about this $2M coverup. Where is this information coming from? Before we make accusations of the president’s eligibility to be in office, we need confirmed sources other than Alex Jones.
    If there is a shred of truth to the allegation that he was not born in the US, then by what mechanism was he able to circumvent a Constitutional requirement of US presidency?
    Supposedly there is a case in California charging that his Hawaiian birth certificate is bogus.
    The Internet is full of conspiracy theories and not much fact. I’d like to know if there are real facts behind this trial and their origins in public records.

  8. Damien — If you are pretending to respond to me, you need to read and respond to what I actually said, not what you want me to say.

    I SAID that the reason that there IS NOT “sufficient evidence” about Obama being a natural born citizen is that Obama is paying lawyers (~$2M and counting) to hide all the documentation that is relevant.

    This is at least suspicious to any person with normal brain function.

    NOTE: The suspicious thing is the lengths Obama is going to to HIDE evidence. This is not the same as MY HAVING said evidence. Get it?

    BTY: A “certificate of live birth” does not constitute proof about where you were born — it only certifies that someone brought a live baby in. A real birth certificate would list the doctor and hospital (or other place) where the birth actually took place.

    Also: No “certificate of live birth” is actually available — only an image of one that shows evidence of photoshopping.

  9. BobC,

    Prove that it was forged, or we have nothing to discuss. What evidence do you have that it was photoshoped that would stack up in a court of law? I did respond to what you wrote. And to say something along the lines of “there is not sufficient evidence that Obama was not born here because he is paying his lawyers to cover up all the evidence that he is not natural born citizen” is basically saying that the reason we see no evidence is because Obama is covering it all up. Than how can you be so sure that he was not born in the U.S? You are claiming there’s a conspiracy, but you have no evidence that it even exists, and than you say, you can’t show me evidence because it is being covered up. It seems to me that occam’s razor says that most likely Obama was born in Hawaii, not some foreign country like Indonesia or Pakistan. Saying that there is not sufficient evidence because it is being covered up in any case is not using critical thinking skills. What if someone said to you, the government is secretly working on alien space craft at Area 51, and when you asked him for evidence he told you, “The reason I don’t have sufficient evidence is because the government is covering it up.” Or what if some Creationist came up to and told you evolution is nonsense and that there is overwhelming evidence that the Earth is less than ten thousand years old. Than you asked him for evidence and he told you, “the evil evolutionists are covering it up, otherwise I could show you plenty of evidence.” Now does that not sound absurd to you? Do you not see how ridiculous you are being.

  10. BobC,

    There are plenty of good reasons to oppose Obama, and a lot of good arguments for not voting for him come next election. Please do not focus on something you can not back up with any real evidence and is most likely utter nonsense

  11. Anything to keep the Space Program going?

    How about making it a condition that 50% of the participants are women? Imagine, female astronauts trying to pray to mekka 5 times a day while weightless.

    Almost, it could be worth it.

    Actually, I still believe an Iron curtain is the only PC answer.
    Get out, stay out, and let the natural competition inherent in the secular versus islamic ideologies solve the problem for us – I give it 25 years.

  12. Giving advanced technologies to nations who are incapable of developing their own, and who have never gone through the societal maturation neccessary for their sane and intelligent utilization results in situations like Pakistan having nuclear weapons.

  13. Obama has already shown his birth certificate, the official birth certificate of Hawaii. Yes, the Certification of Live Birth is the official birth certificate of Hawaii, and it is the only birth certificate that Hawaii sends out. It no longer sends out copies of the original birth certificate. (http://www.starbulletin.com/columnists/kokualine/20090606_kokua_line.html).

    It is not possible to get a birth certificate from Hawaii that says “born in Hawaii” on it (as Obama’s does) unless there was proof that the child was born in Hawaii.

    The Certification of Live Birth is accepted as proof of birth in the USA by the US State Department and the branches of the US military. AND, in Obama’s case, the facts on the birth certificate–that he was born in Hawaii in 1961–were twice confirmed by the officials in Hawaii, who are members of a Republican governor’s administration.

  14. Re: “Also: No “certificate of live birth” is actually available — only an image of one that shows evidence of photoshopping.”

    Obama showed the physical copy of the Certification of Live Birth to both Politifact and Factcheck (which posted its own photographs of the document).

    Only two guys who will not give their names have claimed that the posted document was forged. McCain and Hillary made no claims of it being forged (and you know they would have if there was any possibility that it was forged). And, finally, the two top officials of the Department of Health of Hawaii have said twice that the facts on Obama’s posted birth certificate are confirmed by the original document in the files.

  15. Damien,

    It certainly seems true that “we have nothing to discuss”, if only because you insist on discussing your own fantasies of what I said instead of what I actually did say.

    i.e.: “Than how can you be so sure that he was not born in the U.S? ” I never said I was sure of any such thing (quote me if you can) — this is your own invention.

    Most of the “suckers” that P.T. Barnum referred to (“There’s one born every minute”) aren’t unintelligent — they just refuse to acknowledge the signs that they are being conned. You’re a classic case and, as you have so obviously demonstrated, you are not open to rational discussion.

    I hope, for everyone’s sake, that Obama really does have America’s best interests at heart. Given his history and past (and present) associations, however (William Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Van Jones, etc), this seems at least questionable.

  16. HMM- Let me think. let me think. So- the liar in chief wants to give Indonesia- a hot bed of Islamofascism- access to rockets and the technology that goes along with it. HMMM- thinking some more- oh yes- so they can then sell said technology to Iran or other America hating countries? Thinking, thinking- oh yes- this ties in quite nicely with the embargo on weapons to Israel while selling to Egypt and other assorted corrupt muslim dictatorships.
    NOT A GOOD IDEA Obama!

  17. BobC,

    I never said I liked Obama, or that I thought he was being a good president. I just think our opposition to him needs to be based on something that is not nonsense. Believe it or not, in large part due to Obama’s behavior at one point I even thought this whole birther nonsense might have a basis in reality. But not only did there turn out to be no real evidence for it, the evidence agianst turned out to be overwhelming. Plus something would have come out long before now, had there been anything to it, despite the efforts of Obama. Come next election try to come up with arguments agianst Obama based on things like this defending of Nasa and his attempt to appease our enemies. Do not try to get him thrown out of the white house based on a claim that you cannot back up. We have enough problems trying to get people to take the anti Jihad movement seriously, and if Obama is going to be defeated come next election, its not going to be because of some falsified claim that he was born outside of the United States.

  18. Damien,

    I agree with you tactically — where I differ is that I refuse to accept “that is nonsense” as a logical argument. (The AGW alarmists are fond of this “argument” as well.) Protesting that the other side is crazy is the tactic used when you’re run out of logical ammo. Something is being hidden — we can only speculate on what, but it takes willing blindness to believe that everything is in the open when it most obviously isn’t.

    The fact that something is being hidden also raises valid concerns about potential blackmail.

    “Come next election try to come up with arguments against Obama based on things like this defending of NASA and his attempt to appease our enemies.” — This won’t exactly be a hard job, if Obama keeps up being as incompetent as he has for his first year.

    “…something would have come out long before now, had there been anything to it…” You have too much faith in your fellow men: Read this 1905 Scientific American article “The Wright Aeroplane and its Fabled Performance” which uses the exact same argument to conclude that the Wright Brothers were frauds (even though there were hundreds of eyewitnesses).

    “If such sensational and tremendously important experiments are being conducted in a not very remote part of the country, on a subject in which almost everybody feels the most profound interest, is it possible to believe that the enterprising American reporter, … — would not have ascertained all about them and published them broadcast long ago?”

  19. I don’t want to argue with you over this, but until you, or someone else finds some convincing evidence that Obama’s Hawaiian birth certificate was forged, or we can find a Kenyan Or Indonesian birth certificate with Obama’s name on it that we can prove is genuine, we have nothing to to discuss. By the way, I’m not saying you’re crazing, but many of your arguments are illogical, and you have yet to show any convincing evidence to back up your point.

  20. What does Obama think the NASA should do to reach out to Muslim countries? Does Obama want these countries to develop their own space programs with the help of NASA? I see a dark future ahead. It won’t be impossible that in the future these countries will have the means to destroy America with space programs that the US helped them to develop.

  21. For BobC,
    Just one question. What other president can you think of that has refused to allow as much of his personal and public records as possible? Seems to me there should be no reason to suppress anything. Too much about his past is unclear because he wants it that way. I have a hard time trusting any person that is deliberately deceptive. You probably know about as much as the rest of the public. I am wary of defending anything I don’t know as fact.

  22. @ Suspicious (Feb 21, 11:35PM),

    It is natural to be suspicious of people who are going to great lengths to hide something, especially when they and their supporters assure us that what is being hidden is “unimportant”.

    Nobody (who is sane, anyway) goes to great lengths to hide “unimportant” things.

    I feel certain that various intelligence agencies around the world are doing everything they can to get some of the hidden information, as that would give their governments leverage over the POTUS. I imagine something like the plot of “The President’s Analyst” (movie starring James Coburn — very funny, BTY)

    Maybe, in a few decades, someone will write a “tell-all” book for our entertainment.


  24. How can a Natural Born Citizen’s status be “Governed” by Great Britain?

    “When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children.”

    Furthermore: Hawaii’s “Territorial Law, Chapter 57 – VITAL STATISTICS, I”, shown beginning pg 23 of 29, (the law in effect in 1961) allowed baby’s born anywhere in the world to be eligible to apply for a Hawaii birth certificate.

  25. Rxsid,

    Barrack Obama was born on U.S soil period.

    Here is the exact text from the fourteenth amendment.

    Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.


    Why do you think the children of Illegal aliens born on U.S soil is even an issue? Its says that people born on U.S soil get automatic natural born citizenship. For better or worse, that is what it says.

    Now until you or someone else can show that Obama’s certificate of live birth was forged or find a genuine document that shows he was born outside the U.S, we have nothing to discuss.

  27. I lived in Indonesia for 12 years, and can assure you that any money sent there will not be used for terrorism, it will simply be stolen by the government poobahs, who are simply thieves.

  28. Funny, last time I checked, nations that follow this cult has ZERO interest in the scientific world. Not to mention that NASA isn’t a diplomatic entity, last time I checked. It angers me that we’re no longer going back to the Moon. The space program has helped out society so much, just take a look around. The medicines that has helped to developed/improve, the technology that has allowed cellphones, tv’s, GPS technology, etc. It’s ironic that it was a democratic president that originally sent us to the moon in the first place, a republican president that decided that we should go back, and now another democratic president that doesn’t think that we should go back. What an idiot.

  31. BobC and others,
    Whether Obama is an American citizen or not is now a moot point.
    He needs to be prevented from doing more damage to the USA through the ballot box (and no other method should even be considered). His recent decisions re: NASA are nothing more that political grandstanding crushing science – the idiotic assertion that NASA should be hand-feeding muslim countries will result in a significant waste of money and energy – given that both are finite resources they are better spent in solving the problems that space travel presents to us. Obama is a fool, and I do not consider him as an intelligent person. However, NASA itself does need urgent overhaul, and the system within with contracts are won (or whatever) needs urgent review – and not from the NASA administration. When a firm can put a 400% markup on a tool that is available in your hardware store, questions need to be answered. Perhaps the idiot is trying to do this, but his approach effectively is aimed at destroying American innovation and the lead that the USA has in many (not all) high technology industries. Obama has too many hidden corners for my liking, and I see no reason to trust him.
    I suspect he is only in power as a consequence of an aversion to the policies of Bush, however those that voted him in may now be responsible for someone who may be far more closed and dangerous than Bush ever was. You folks voted him in – perhaps you should consider throwing him and the Clintons out at the next election – if you still have a choice. Obama is a classic example of why extreme political correctness is simply another form of extreme socialism – and all these experiments have to date failed.


    I don’t really want to keep this, going, butt… Actually weather Obama was a natural born U.S Citizen is a moot point, because if it could be shown that he wasn’t that would mean that his entire presidency would have been illegal, and we would have to kick him out of office before the end of his turn. That said there is still no convincing evidence that he isn’t a natural born U.S Citizen. So we I don’t think we have to worry about the constitutional crisis that discovery would cause.

    • You really believe that the big guys at the top are on the up and up about Obama? You don’t stop to think for one minute that the big guys at the top have been breaking laws to keep this idiot in office for their benefit, you really think that they are looking out for US? He hasn’t been called out for any of these criminal acts he has committed because they all want him there and to keep their positions, they’re too afraid to call him out and he knows it, he’s paying big bucks to keep all this hidden from Americans.
      You know, anyone who actually pays attention, and I mean not just listening to one side only, and with just HALF of a brain left can figure out what this guy is up to and what he’s about, how is it that so many people faithfully following him choose to stay so gullible? It’s going to affect their own lives and they can’t even begin to see that, it’s just weird! They want to protect this guy when he’s out to bring them down, he’s the enemy and they refuse to see it, what a dang shame all this is.

  33. Indonesia: a hot bed for Islamofascism?
    Do you know about anything outside your own fence?
    When did you EVER hear about an Indonesian terrorist? Indonesia has one of the best counter-terrorism forces in the world, they not only captured or killed all the leaders and members of these radical groups, but they consider extremist Islam one of the biggest threats to their country.
    So does Egypt, and so do many other namely *muslim* countries.

    And Obama didn’t cut funding to NASA, he cut funding to the moon program which was wasting money on something that has been done over and over and over again. Even freagin’ India has been to the moon! The moon done, its over, there is nothing else there!
    100 Billion is a lot of money that can best be used in a million other things, like going to Mars for instance, which Obama said he wants to focus on, and see happen in his lifetime.

    And seriously, the whole “he’s not born in America” argument again?? Is it like a bad tune that’s stuck in your head, where no good amount of reason or proof will ever change it?
    He’s an American, born in America, and he has a valid American certificate of Birth.
    The government confirmed it, Hawaii confirmed it, even Republicans confirmed it. What more do you want? Give it a rest because the rest of us are getting really annoyed at this sheer stupidity.

    • he did cut funding to NASA while simultaneously reallocating NASA resources to Muslim countries…

      Egypt and Indonesia and other govts can do all they want to stop terrorism but when they are producing and teaching terrorists at a rate far beyond what they are stopping it at, it doesn’t matter… one thing they can’t do is revise the Koran

      how much non-truth can you squeeze into on comment?

  34. etch- if Indonesia has no terrorists why do they have- to quote your comment-
    “one of the best counter-terrorism forces in the world”
    I spend a great deal of time reading news sources outside the infotainment industry of the United States. Also have relatives who have been in the military approaching 20 years- and deployed numerous times to train military in other countries to fight islamofascists.

  35. There are thousands of reasons to vote Obama’s house and senat OUT in November, and in 2012 Obama himself OUT!!!, if some one can;t find any specific reason ti kick the f.. them out always vote against evil or if you are not sure whom to vote for, Always vote against the evil one , incompetent one, lier, moron and islamic servant.
    then we will be OK

  36. liberals, progressives, democrats,, celebrities, why are they all morons?
    Because they all abused drugs in 70s so their brains and minds got melted, rearranged, twisted, they forced AMA to remove homosexualism from disorders list, and therefore there is a largest number of homo among above group of people the same apply to wester Euroland.
    The only hope for America is to move them all out of power in november, I can live without those stupid movies or liberal music. Thanks God for classic music and country.

  45. I think what all of you guys need to understand is that the United Nations (UN) came up with a resolution for space exploration. All countries are to help one another with the science of space. What Obama did was make a friendship with Indonesia and he is helping them with their space program.
    What you people also need to understand is that not all Muslim countries are the homes of terrorists. When have you ever heard of Indonesia supplying terrorists?
    Most of you are acting like the stereotypical Americans that us Canadians are becoming to expect. Childish, arrogant, and downright oblivious to the world around them.
    Before you claim that Obama is a “closet Muslim”, which first of all is pretty racist, you should perhaps read a little bit more about the subject.
    I think it’s pretty damn sad that a 15 year old from another country knows more about it than you do, and has the ability to understand that not all Muslims are terrorists.
