All Of NASA Was Throttled By Right Wing Political Appointees Working For Griffin


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

As alarming news pours in, the facts of global warming and exterrestrial events pound the earth, NASA wasn't muzzled only by far right wing religious college drop-outs, the vicious campaign to stifle all talk of what is happening to the primary planet in the solar system if not the universe, the earth, was coordinated by Griffin working with his buddy, Bush. Griffin should resign.

From the New York Times:
Top political appointees in the NASA press office exerted strong pressure during the 2004 presidential campaign to cut the flow of news releases on glaciers, climate, pollution and other earth sciences, public affairs officers at the agency say.
OK, the whole point of a director is to defend his underlings from political hacks. Always, Presidents and political powers that be want to meddle with NASA. They do it all the time. But some things are not to be meddled with. One is, launching the shuttle under dangerous conditions due to political pressure.

When Reagan had this done for himself, there was tremendous pressure to whitewash the entire affair. It was remarkably like the Cheney near murder of a fellow "hunter". That was swiftly swept under the table by everyone who has an interest in propping up the present maladministration. For an interesting read about the Cheney circus, read this: from Inforwars:

Below is a ten minute "see-for-yourself" report that conclusively shows that Vice President Dick Cheney's claims to Kennedy County Sheriff's Deputies in south Texas is a total fabrication.

A massive cover-up has been conducted concerning the shooting. We know that most of the facts that have been told to the public are manufactured frauds.
Nearly everything Cheney told the cops was a lie. And his buddies covered up. They do this with everything and they tried doing this with the NASA mess.

Luckily for us, once again, people are leaking out the truth and the truth is, NASA has been destroyed by Bush and those dumb "Let's go to Mars" lunatics (literally, in this case, since they want to go back to the moon, too!) while scrapping systems that are designed to study the premier planet in the entire galaxy: the Earth!
Some examples have been reported to senior scientists and administrators who are assembling complaints as part of a review of communications policies demanded by Dr. Griffin, who became administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in April. Others have been described or provided to The New York Times.
Griffin is desperately trying to distance himself from this mess he enabled. Was he so out of touch, he couldn't see what his own front office was doing? How did he manage to be so aloof and distant from the scientists in Planetary Sciences who are interested in this planet more than Mars?

Eh? What? I sincerely wish we could ship all those Mars lovers to their home planet and let us run this one, thank you, ourselves! Bush and Cheney in particular. Both men profess to be much more interested in Mars than Earth. All the abiotic oil loons can go there, too, and prospect for oil.
Press officers, who were granted anonymity because they said they were still concerned for their jobs despite Dr. Griffin's call for openness, said much of the pressure in late 2004 was placed on Gretchen Cook-Anderson. At the time, Ms. Cook-Anderson was in charge of managing the flow of earth science news at NASA headquarters.
How could "pressure" be placed on this lady if her boss who is only one step over her head, didn't collude? Of course, he not only allowed this, he actively assisted in this, his meetings with Cheney (sans guns) and Bush show he had their ears and they had his ears. How can he pull a "Ken Lay" and claim he is innocent, out of the loop, unaware?

All it takes is one phone call. Instead, like Chertoff, another monster who should be shipped to Mars where there are no hurricanes, he pretends no one bothered to tell him and suddenly, he reads it in the news! My oh my. The uninquiring minds of the Bush administration!

So, people working for NASA are still terrified of being punished for talking about this planet! After Griffin begged them to talk! Hah.
Mr. Mahone has since left NASA. He did not return several calls seeking comment yesterday. Dean Acosta, a political appointee who was then Mr. Mahone's deputy and is now Dr. Griffin's press secretary, said he had never pressed Ms. Cook-Anderson to cut back on news releases. "I was not part of any meeting that would have been party to that," Mr. Acosta said.

But archives of news releases on the NASA headquarters Web site show a sharp change in the number of such releases, to 12 in 2005 from about four dozen in 2004, a figure that had helped lead to the pressure to cut back.
Note how the lady who was pressured to conceal a crime (destroying our planet is the ultimate crime!) is out of her position and the political operative who is responsible rose in the ranks and works intimately with Griffin. Hmmm. And some people say I am nuts to talk about these things so harshly...heh.

Mr. Acosta likes to lie. Cheney lies about nearly everything and Bush hasn't seen a lie he couldn't embrace happily since he was a tot. The media lies, too. But even the NYT is tiring of all these lies since we bloggers harrass them mercilessly when they lie, and now, we see a flood of truth finally pouring out, sort of.
In a more recent example of possible political pressure at the agency, press officers and scientists cited an e-mail message sent last July from NASA's headquarters to its Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. It said a Web presentation describing the uncontroversial finding that Earth was a "warming planet" could not use the phrase "global warming." It is "standard practice," the message went on, to use the phrase "climate change."
Note the "headquarters" element here! Griffin's office is the center of "the headquarters" and if he is too dumb to know what the hell is going on in his Commissat office, he should resign.

Just go, Griffin. Your goofy plan to go to Mars is a failure, your refusal to protect the earth is a crime. Your inability to focus our resources on important matters stinks. There is now a huge clamor in America demanding we go to Mars but there is a lot of people who are very alarmed and very interested in what is happening to our earth.

Just for starters, Houston and the Florida as well as the Alabama facilities will be under water if this news about Greenland melting very rapidly is true!
The amount of ice flowing into the sea from large glaciers in southern Greenland has almost doubled in the last 10 years, possibly requiring scientists to increase estimates of how much seas could rise under the influence of global warming, according to a study to be published Friday in the journal Science.

The authors said there is evidence that the rise in flows will soon spread to glaciers farther north on the vast island of Greenland, which is covered with an ancient ice sheet nearly two miles high in places that holds enough water to raise global sea levels 20 feet or more should it all flow into the ocean.
No place in Florida, south of Tallahasee, is higher than 20' above sea level in Florida! Geeze, you morons.

Mars has no water. It is cold. A perfect dwelling place for all the planet earth haters who are destroying NASA. I say, let's build them all a Noah's Ark and ship them there. Now. As quickly as humanly possible.

A side story of interest: From Space.com:
A huge explosion halfway across the galaxy packed so much power it briefly altered Earth's upper atmosphere in December, astronomers said Friday.

No known eruption beyond our solar system has ever appeared as bright upon arrival.

But you could not have seen it, unless you can top the X-ray vision of Superman: In gamma rays, the event equaled the brightness of the full Moon's reflected visible light.
You know, we got sprayed with more than the usual amount of x-rays this last year when the sun spat out some very nasty stuff, too. This business affects the polar regions thanks to the ozone holes and it is no wonder, the ice is melting much faster than we expected.

The Permian extinction was like this, I fear.
