The name of Jesus is not welcome in the Johnson Space Center newsletter, according to a complaint filed on behalf of a group of Christians who work for NASA.

The JSC Praise & Worship Club was directed by NASA attorneys to refrain from using the name ‘Jesus’ in club announcements that appeared in a Space Center newsletter.

“It was shocking to all of us and very frustrating,” NASA engineer Sophia Smith told me. “NASA has a long history of respecting religious speech. Why wouldn’t they allow us to put the name Jesus in the announcement about our club?”

Liberty Institute, one of the nation’s largest religious liberty law firms, threatened to file a federal lawsuit unless NASA apologizes and stops censoring the name ‘Jesus’.

Government Agencies Proclaim Bogus Temperature Record

Moonbattery

If global warming ideology is based in reality, and leftists are the ones who believe in science, why is it that again and again the government dissembles about temperature data to prop up this moribund hoax?

NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced this week that according to their calculations, July 2015 was the hottest month since instrumental records began in 1880. …

But government spokespeople rarely mention the inconvenient fact that these records are being set by less than the uncertainty in the statistics. NOAA claims an uncertainty of 14 one-hundredths of a degree in its temperature averages, or near twice the amount by which they say the record was set. NASA says that their data is typically accurate to one tenth of a degree, five times the amount by which their new record was set.

So, the new temperature records are meaningless. Neither agency knows whether a record was set.

Such misrepresentations are now commonplace in NOAA and NASA announcements. They are regularly proclaiming monthly and yearly records set by less than the uncertainties in the measurements. Scientists within the agencies know that this is dishonest.

They also know that Big Government doesn’t hand out money for nothing. From some it buys votes; from others it buys a “scientific” rationale for its power grabs. This goes for the recipients of government grants as well as the employees of government agencies.

In any case temperature records are nonsense because the temperature is not reliably recorded, and there is data for only a small percentage of the earth’s surface.

Much of the coverage is so sparse that NASA is forced to make the ridiculous claim that regions are adequately covered if there is a temperature-sensing station within nearly 750 miles. This is the distance between Ottawa, Canada, and Myrtle Beach, S.C. cities with very different climates. Yet, according to NASA, only one temperature sensing station is necessary for the two cities and the vast area between them to be adequately represented in their network.

No matter; data is so heavily massaged anyway that it hardly matters what numbers they start with.

Credibility has been sacrificed just to convince us that it is getting warmer. That insufficient government regulation is causing the warming is a separate issue, as is the doubtful assertion that warming is bad.

If something smells enough like a dead rat, it is probably a dead rat. At this point the global warming hoax smells so bad that no numbers our government produces should be taken seriously by anyone.

Pikes, Pickets, and Scams

American Thinker

Every now and then seeing the overwhelming stupidity of so many, I daydream about running a major scam, cleaning up and retiring in style to the Cayman Islands or Tahiti. But reviewing the records of politicians, media, and universities, I realize I am just not up to the competition. Instead, I’m resigned to simply opening up a series of pike and picket stands at all the entrances to the Capital City.

This week’s manifest fraud should fuel our fury.

The Eagle has Landed

CFP

Forty-four years ago, a nation that we now know was racist, didn’t care about the environment and drank too much soda, landed on the moon.

Half-a-billion television viewers watched it happen live. They saw men walk on the surface of another world. They saw that human beings could break free of their world

And that was that.

Neil Armstrong died about the time that Obama finished gutting NASA. He lived long enough to write a saddened letter about the decline of American space exploration under Obama that everyone in the media did their best not to pay attention to. The letter was also signed by Eugene Cernan, the last man to walk on the moon.

Birds of a Feather

American Thinker

Is  Barack Hussein Obama a Muslim?  Even if he were, it would hardly matter.   For his policies are apparently animated by an ideology that, even though  a polar opposite of militant Islam, is little different from it in terms of  objectives and results.

One  can understand why so many people believe that Obama might be a Muslim.

NASA: Muslim World, Here We Come!

Floyd Reports

Now that the space shuttle program has been retired, NASA can start focusing on its primary mission: reaching out to the Muslim world.

In 1961, John F. Kennedy promised that America would be the first country to land a man on the moon. It was an exciting time for the space program and many amazing accomplishments were achieved, including the fulfillment of Kennedy’s promise, the moon landing of 1969.

It is quite sad to see how NASA has suffered in the last four decades. Instead of excitement about the space program, there is a sense that it is coming to an end with the retirement of the space shuttle.

New NASA Data Blow Gaping Hold In Global Warming Alarmism

Yahoo News

NASA satellite data from the years 2000
through 2011 show the Earth’s atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be
released into space than alarmist computer models have predicted, reports a
new study in the peer-reviewed science journal Remote
Sensing
. The study indicates far less future global warming will occur
than United Nations computer models have predicted, and supports prior studies
indicating increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide trap far less
heat than alarmists have claimed.
