On fake moon landings and interesting conspiracy theories.

BACKDROP:

  We live in interesting and highly confusing times. As americans have become more and more aware of government lies and its monstrous crimes, and the mainstream media continues to place layer upon layer of disinformaiton on their consciousness, a healthy level of skepticism has arisen. This fringe segment of the population includes many ideas and interpetations of history. Some are the demonstrable truth. Others are simply expressions of infantile imaginations or lunacy. Despite the fact that many skeptics are on firm ground as far as historical truth is concerned, the government version being a fabrication, the establishment hacks have tarnished them all with the label “Conspiracy theorist”, all the easier to dismiss them. Below a report filed by a man who believes in the US moon landings, Tariq Malik, who is also Space.com Managing Editor , and is obviously in the majority. As for the TGP editors, we tend to believe the moon landings but we also believe it could have been an elaborate hoax—it is well within the fantasy-making capabiltiies of the system. So we are simply not sure any more. Too much has happened. Thus, as the Scots say, the verdict in our case is “Not proven”—either way. —PG

Moon Landing Hoax Believers Follow Party Lines: Report

By Tariq Malik / Space.com

Even Moon landing hoaxers toe the party line. Who knew? A study reported on by our sister site LiveScience reveals that the polarizing rift between Democrats and Republicans hits conspiracy theorists, too. The report by Bad Science debunker Ben Radford states:

As one might expect, the more far-out the conspiracy theory, the fewer people endorse it. Dean Debnam, president of Public Policy Polling, which conducted the research, noted, “Most Americans reject the wackier ideas out there about fake moon landings and shape-shifting lizards.”

Even so, 20 percent of Republicans believe that President Obama is the Anti-Christ, compared with 13 percent of Independents and 6 percent of Democrats who agree.

Still, about 7 percent of Americans polled in the study think NASA did indeed fake the Apollo moon landings, the study found. Seriously…7 percent. Don’t tell Buzz Aldrin.

Parting shot—a word from the editors
The Best Definition of Donald Trump We Have Found

In his zeal to prove to his antagonists in the War Party that he is as bloodthirsty as their champion, Hillary Clinton, and more manly than Barack Obama, Trump seems to have gone “play-crazy” — acting like an unpredictable maniac in order to terrorize the Russians into forcing some kind of dramatic concessions from their Syrian allies, or risk Armageddon.However, the “play-crazy” gambit can only work when the leader is, in real life, a disciplined and intelligent actor, who knows precisely what actual boundaries must not be crossed. That ain’t Donald Trump — a pitifully shallow and ill-disciplined man, emotionally handicapped by obscene privilege and cognitively crippled by white American chauvinism. By pushing Trump into a corner and demanding that he display his most bellicose self, or be ceaselessly mocked as a “puppet” and minion of Russia, a lesser power, the War Party and its media and clandestine services have created a perfect storm of mayhem that may consume us all.
