Have any of you heard about the spies we’ve had in NASA? Seems they’ve sold valuable information to China…and Dear Leader’s DOJ has put a halt to this investigation going forward via the court system! Anyone surprised about this administration and their so-called ‘transparency’ not being transparent at all? Heck, I don’t know about you…but I wouldn’t have known a dang thing about this had it not been for Fox News. At this stage of the game you have to be totally disgusted by the rest of the msm being silent…carrying their water for the messiah, as usual. Yet if this had been a republican administration, this would be news 24/7! Just another example of hypocrisy for all to see!

Read this report…see what you think about all it entails. – This is via FN:

A four-year FBI investigation into the transfer of classified weapons technology to China and other countries from NASA’s Ames Research Center is being stonewalled by government officials, sources tell FoxNews.com.

Documents obtained by FoxNews.com, which summarize these and other allegations and were given to congressional sources last week by a whistle-blower, described how a “secret grand jury” was to be convened in February 2011 to hear testimony from informants in the case, including a senior NASA engineer. But federal prosecutor Gary Fry was removed from the case, which was then transferred from one office in the Northern District of California to another where, according to the documents, “this case now appears to be stalled.”

“The information is staggering,” the whistle-blower told FoxNews.com.

A Justice Department spokesman on Thursday told FoxNews.com it “does not comment on grand jury proceedings,” as a matter of longstanding policy. Fry, reached for comment late Thursday, also would not confirm or deny the claim.

‘When I mentioned the tech that was compromised to the Armed Services Committee, their jaws just dropped.’

The claims originate with several past and current NASA employees concerned with the systemic leak of highly sensitive information relating to missile defense systems, as well as what they call a troubled investigation into the leak.

The documents claim the FBI has been working with other agencies since 2009 on an investigation into foreign nationals working at Ames. This follows allegations by two Republican lawmakers earlier this month that the U.S. attorney’s office in the Northern California district was ultimately denied by the Justice Department when it tried to proceed with indictments.

Melinda Haag, the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of California, denied claims her office was blocked in trying to proceed with the case.

“I am aware of allegations our office sought authority from DOJ in Washington, D.C. to bring charges in a particular matter and that our request was denied,” she said in a written statement. “Those allegations are untrue. No such request was made and no such denial was received.”

Yet two members of Congress, Reps. Frank Wolf, R-Va., and Lamar Smith, R-Texas, said in a statement to FoxNews.com that Haag’s denial “conflicts with information we have received from federal law enforcement sources,” and added “we hope that the DOJ Inspector General will take our request seriously.” The lawmakers had requested, via letter, an IG investigation.

Rob Storch, a spokesman for the DOJ inspector general’s office, confirmed to FoxNews.com the office received the letter from Wolf and Smith. “We’re evaluating (the letter),” he said.

Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, the Ames Research Center has been a center of high tech innovation for more than 60 years. As the space agency’s mission has changed over the years since it was built, NASA has turned it into a commercial research facility, leasing out space to a number of companies including rocket firm SpaceX and tech giant Google, which leases 42 acres there through a holding company called Planetary Ventures.

The accusations stem from a reported violation of the International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR), which governs the export of defense weaponry. In 2006, Ames adapted specialized rocket engines — originally developed for the Pentagon missile defense “Kinetic Kill Vehicle” program — for a moon lander prototype that ultimately became NASA’s Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE). The robotic moon orbiter is set to launch on Aug. 12, 2013.

Information on guidance and terrain-mapping systems from the Tomahawk cruise missile and a radar from the F-35 were also shared, according to one report in Aviation Week.

“When I mentioned the tech that was compromised to the Armed Services Committee, their jaws just dropped,” a congressional source told FoxNews.com.

The sources allege that Ames Center Director Simon P. “Pete” Worden and Will Marshall, a British citizen, shared that moon lander project – and the missile defense technology – with individuals from foreign countries including China, South Korea and Saudi Arabia.

“Will Marshall in particular had demonstrated far too great an interest in locating U.S. spy satellites, giving interviews to Chinese and American newspapers on curtailing U.S. space security,” reads a document that was purportedly given to the FBI. Marshall could not be reached for comment by FoxNews.com.

The document claims foreign nationals, under the direction of Worden, were since 2006 brought in to work on space flight projects, without the proper export control licenses. Further, the document claims they were planning to share technology with the Chinese and other countries through the International Space University.

The document also charges the Department of Homeland Security “intercepted” Marshall at the San Francisco airport, and “confiscated” his NASA-issued computer, suggesting it contained sensitive information.

“Foreign nationals had access to technology and even brought foreign visitors in to see it. Three left the country and talked about the technology,” congressional sources told FoxNews.com. “The case was referred to the U.S. attorney – it’s a clear violation of ITAR.”

A NASA engineer was subpoenaed to testify before a secret grand jury in February 2011 in San Jose, according to the documents. But the attorney assigned to the case – Gary Fry — was removed at the last minute, before the case was transferred to another office within Haag’s district. Fry still works out of the San Jose office.

NASA headquarters deferred questions to the Department of Justice. The Justice Department headquarters also declined to comment to FoxNews.com.

But Worden told FoxNews.com the accusations are “rubbish.”

“I take very seriously our responsibility to safeguard sensitive information. I say this unambiguously — I have not, would not, and could not impede a law enforcement investigation. To the best of my knowledge I am not the subject of a current investigation,” he said in a statement.

On Feb. 8, Reps. Wolf and Smith sent letters to the Justice Department inspector general and the director of the FBI regarding the allegedly illegal movement of this crucial technology. Wolf chairs the House Appropriations Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies subcommittee. Smith heads the House Science, Space and Technology Committee.

The letters allege the FBI had uncovered the ITAR violations, and the U.S. attorney was prepared to issue indictments. But it says the case has been stalled for more than a year, agents in the case were reassigned, and the statute of limitations on the violations is already beginning to expire.

“It is our understanding that this illegal technology transfer may have involved classified Defense Department weapons system technology to foreign countries, including China, potentially with the tacit or direct approval of the center’s leadership,” the letters read.

Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, also wrote to NASA as early as April 2012 asking about allegations that Worden “allowed foreign nationals” to access Ames – along with “NASA secrets and cutting edge technology” in violation of ITAR.

You have to wonder if anyone really cares about all of this, let alone being aware of it! – What say you?

    Geez, the treason never ends with this administration, does it? This explains in part why Obama appoints the most incompetent people to high positions and has kept his current Attorney General in place because they are less likely to challenge him or oppose his scheme to undermine the U.S. I think he also appoints such misfits because whatever incompetence occurs can be blamed on them rather than himself.

    A few years down the road, much more of Obama’s treasonous efforts will begin to see the light of day as they unravel before the eyes of the American public. But by then, it will be too late.

    • Yep…good ol’ AG Holder, charged with ‘Contempt of Congress’ made history…and he still holds that position! – Unreal!


      This too will go by the wayside, just as Fast and Furious did.

      Any repub prez would have been impeached by now with all these scandals, especially when it comes to having blood on their hands such as F&F and Benghazi too. – The msm is despicable…and trust me, I’m putting that politely!

      • It’s like the Carter administration on steroids – except these creeps are getting two terms to wreak havoc and destruction. Thank you, McCain, Romney, RNC, Karl Rove, etc., etc., for your stupendous efforts in suppressing all those with real conservative values. Wishy Washy Weasels.

        • Thank you indeed! Plus…when the senators on our side of the aisle confirmed Holder with glee, I was…and still am disgusted beyond belief! – Nothing changes…things stay the same ol’…same ol’ only this time what this administration is doing is on high speed destruction to this country!

  2. Anyone think Dear Leader will pay heed to any of this?


  3. I see engineering drawings come through my machine shop all the time that are marked, ‘DoD’ sensitive material. Usually not complete assemblies but rather components. The issue here is most likely are these NASA people selling info to other countries? If that’s the case, it’s not new.

    • Well then it must be much ado about nothing…eh MichaelT?

      Worry not, whether it is or isn’t….it will be and swept under the rug, as it already is being at this moment. – We don’t need to know at all!

  5. Perhaps now we have some idea of why the FBI director had his term in office Extended by “O” beyond the normal term limit. The limit was in place to stop power consolidation that had gone on under Hoover. Congress never blinked an eye, ya, sure, go ahead, who cares! See any of your Congress Critters putting up a fight about downsizing our Nukes to Irans level. The answer is the same most of the time, They really don’t care! Now if “O” tried to downsize their offices or staff allocation numbers they’ed be throwing public fits. Its like having 535 Rats in a big cage, keep the treats flowing all is peaceful. Kick the cage once in a while just to upset and tease them, maybe make Boner cry just to show who is Boss Rat. Boss Rat is ruling by executive fiat now, who needs Congress when ya got Media Rats articulating the Boss Rats message. We don’t even have a functioning Govt anymore, none!!! We have NO, NO, NO budget. We will never have one with “O” in office, just watch. We might as well have Arafat running the country. He was just like “O”. One day he would say one thing, next day deny it and say something else, on and on. Can you imagine all the Secret information “O” and his Commie Rat Bastards have given away already, and now gonna put a Muslim in charge of the CIA, we might as well headquarter the CIA in Egypt with the Brotherhood. I’m disgusted, we are already being ruled, not governed by individuals who have complete contempt for everything the USA stands for.

    • Wow oh wow did you ever speak truth to power my friend. Awesome post….you spoke volumes for this ol’ gal! – TY!

  6. Here’s some more to add to the mix. ~


  7. Well they have no fear of the US anymore, I expect them to keep threatening us as long as “O” is in office. No country ever pissed on us when Reagan was President, now they all do and with impunity. They all know we have Chickensh*t leaders ruling that care little for us Joe and Mary six-packs, after all we cling to God and Guns and Bibles.

  8. Nothing surprises me under this administration and the puke of a president occupying the White House.

    • Me neither my friend. What infuriates me the most is and has been the cover-up about all of the horrendous scandals that they own being shushed by the majority of the media. I cannot help being on fire about this, along with the others being by-passed by these folks…at the expense of all of us. Those now dead and those still alive…that are living in fear of this gang of thugs that run this country. The likes of which we’ve never witnessed. I pray we never do again after they exit the scene. (If they ever really do)

      • We will be fighting the puke left until we die BT… not a comforting thought.

        • I agree, I know exactly what you mean and where you’re coming from my friend. Spookier times are ahead of all us…we’re fools to think different. But march on and fight together we must. Our forefathers would be disappointed, as they should be in us if we did differently.

      • Gang of thugs is a very apt description. Clinton’s storm troopers looked about like a carnival freak show, with demeanor to match their appearance, but this latest bunch has exceeded most people’s wildest imaginations – or nightmares.

        • Right you are…guess we should consider what happened at Waco and to Elian Gonzales lightweight at this stage of this administrations game…eh?

          • This is the way it works. Think about the thugs and sociopaths that were and are the henchmen in those two administrations when you read this.

            Stalin set up a special overseas sabotage and murder squad within his secret service in January 1946. Its first chief, war hero Pavl Anatolevich Sudoplatov, gave one officer – who later defected – this advice on recruiting killers: ‘Go search for people who are hurt by fate or nature – the ugly, those suffering from an inferiority complex, craving power and influence but defeated by unfavourable circumstances. The sense of belonging to an influential, powerful organization will give them a feeling of superiority over the handsome and prosperous people around them and for the first time in their lives they will experience a sense of importance. It is sad and humanly shallow but we are obliged to profit from it.’

            Can you even doubt it?

          • No I can’t…nor do I doubt it for millisecond!

          • Carville is not of this earth. Reno looks about like Frankenstein. Reich’s claim to fame was being the world’s tallest midget. There was wooden man Algore and Madeline Halfbright. Clinton’s lackeys were bizarre in appearance and plenty evil. Obutthole’s are more generic in appearance but even more sinister than their predecessors.

          • Amen Snake…when you thought things couldn’t get any worse than the Clintoon Brigade…along comes the Chicago-Machine and their crime infested congress-critters, from the head of the snake…on down. – Pure satan, pure evil…saturated with it.

          • Works both ways!


    NASA needs to can JAMES HANSEN

    • Never gonna happen now…that should have taken place at least three or four years ago at the least with all the evidence that has come out about this fake stooge for the leftist greenie-weenies. Yet we have to keep paying his monthly salary…and his retirement to-boot!

    • Haven’t seen anything from Red in a while. Rumor has it he’s working on a script for a blockbuster movie called DumbJoe Unbrained. Chronicling the life of the remarkable vice-president, this motion picture covers the childhood years, including all the lead-based paint chips and model airplane glue. There is rare, previously unseen footage of Joe preparing for the vice-presidential debate.


      Starring Joe Biden with a tremendous supporting cast, including wife Jill. You’ll be taken right up to the present, with Joe dispensing timely advice on home and personal defense.

      Joe and Jill, they got a thrill
      When robbers and rapists came calling
      They fired their shotguns in the air
      And sent them away a-bawling.

      And remember, the price of admission buys you the whole seat, but you’ll only need the edge!

  10. Google Search: “Obama Warns” = 1,770,000 hits. –A sure sign of a narcissist and a tyrant. Someone who wants everything HIS way, and threatens and warns people into compliance.

    When Republicans continue to cave-in, time after time, it just encourages more of this behavior. You think they would stand firm ONCE and teach this guy and the entire general public a lesson on what government does to you when it doesn’t get its way.


    • Snake…now that comment hits the mark, in more ways than one!

      • In 1961, Aldous Huxley, an important evolutionary thinker, lectured at the California Medical School in San Francisco where he stated: “And it seems to me perfectly in the cards that there will be within the next generation or so a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda, brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods.”

        Huxley was right. Even his timetable was spot-on.

        • Wow…that he was!

          When you mentioned him, my first thought was how close he and his family had a place not that far from where I was raised…and more connections to that as well here in there from the past. – Nevertheless….thanks for this info, I knew nothing about that.

          • The man himself. Brave New World – he was a real visionary, though his vision was rather disturbing. Here’s something else disturbing….

            But then there is what’s characteristic of all leftists: a pathological inability to condemn one’s own. When Republican congressman Mark Foley was found to have engaged in sexual impropriety, he had to resign, and his conservative constituents were so disenchanted that a Democrat won his seat; when GOP senator Larry Craig was guilty of same, he wouldn’t run again as it would only have resulted in a primary loss. Contrast this with Democrat politicians such as Gerry Studds (there’s a reason his name sounds like a porn star’s), Barney Frank, and Bill Clinton, all of whom could remain in office for as long as their little reprobate hearts desired. Why, Noam Chomsky even defended the Khmer Rouge while they were in the midst of killing off a third of Cambodia, and leftists generally don’t even muster passionate denunciations of Joseph Stalin. But there’s a reason for this. I think you’ll find it interesting.

            It’s always hard to condemn those to whom we have an emotional attachment or whose actions we find emotionally pleasing. The perfect example is a mother who is told her son committed heinous crimes and then goes into denial, saying “He’s a good boy.” Yet we’ve all experienced this phenomenon. Just think about how it’s harder to take a friend to task for a minor transgression than it would be an enemy, or how there’s generally a reluctance to criticize those next to us in the phalanx of a cherished cause. But what increases the chances that you’ll stifle emotion and stand on principle?

            A failure to believe in Absolute Truth is, by definition, denial of moral reality. And to tolerate people so delusional in control of government, the media, and academia is to allow the transformation of your land into a mental asylum writ large.


            Duke is pretty amazing.

          • Amazing indeed…on the list of one of my favs. – That last paragraph sums it all up to a tee…does it not?

          • This doesn’t really have anything to do with anything, but here’s our friend Vladimir. Does he really look like such a bad guy?


          • Isn’t that precious…gives ya a warm and fuzzy feelin’ all over!

  11. Barack Obama: the Liar’s Liar

    Written by Selwyn Duke

    If I had to credit Barack Obama with one thing, it would be knowing his market. He understands that with an America so dumbed-down, and a media so prostrate before him, he can get away with lies previous presidents wouldn’t dare contemplate.

    A good example — but far from the worst — is the current battle over sequestration, a fancy word for fantasy budget cuts. Obama has been engaging in demagoguery, blaming Republicans for these impending “cuts,” calling them “brutal” and a “meat cleaver” approach. What is the truth?

    Sequestration was Obama’s idea.

    He proposed it in 2011 as part of the budget deal. Congress then passed it with the support of not just Republicans such as John Boehner, but also some colleagues named Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. And after the GOP-controlled House and Democrat-controlled Senate approved the bill, Obama signed this “meat cleaver” approach into law. But it gets worse.

    The sequester isn’t any kind of cleaver approach, but more of an Eddie Haskell one. As Forbes’ Paul Roderick Gregory wrote:

    The sequester has been advertised as “cutting” discretionary spending over a ten year period by $995 billion. After inflation adjustments and exempting more than a trillion dollars of defense and non defense discretionary spending from the sequester, the CBO projects (in its Table 1.1) discretionary spending to increase by $110 billion over the decade. There is no actual $995 billion cut after the CBO applies its magic adjustments. Rather there is a $110 billion increase.

    With a meat cleaver like that, your butcher would have your cholesterol shooting up like … well, our budget.


  12. Then we have this drone…droning on and on.


  13. May as well throw this in the mix…the audacity of this administration never ends.
