USAF pilot Virgil “Gus” Grissom (4/3/26-1/27/67) was one of the original Mercury Seven astronauts, who flew atop Redstone rockets on suborbital missions and on Atlas rockets into low Earth orbit. He was the second American to fly into space (on a suborbital mission) and the first American to fly into space twice. His 1961 suborbital flight, Redstone Four, a.k.a. Liberty Bell Seven, landed in the Atlantic as planned. But then, unexpectedly, explosive bolts blew the hatch off and the capsule sank rapidly, forcing Grissom to swim for his life, and nearly drown when his spacesuit began filling with water…while the rescue helicopter initially focused on a futile attempt to retrieve the capsule. Many in and out of NASA tried to insinuate that this brave pilot was a coward who had panicked and hit the release trigger. But why would a “coward” take the one action guaranteed to put him in harm’s way, rather than waiting for the helicopter pickup? And it is well known that the release trigger required a blow of such force that it would leave bruises on his hand…and no bruises were found on Gus Grissom.
On 1/27/67 Virgil Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee were testing the Apollo One capsule on the test stand at the Kennedy Space Center, when an electrical surge sparked a fire, and the three men, unable to escape (the hatches open inward, ironically as a safety feature so they will not blow open in space), died horribly. The capsule had been designed with a tangle of exposed wires, and it was being tested with a pure oxygen atmosphere with above sea level pressure, and was filled with flammable materials, including the astronauts’ space suits. It doesn’t take a chemist or engineer to see that this is an almost certain recipe for disaster. The most basic and minimal safety considerations would dictate that, with a pure oxygen atmosphere, everything must be made fireproof and all possible ignition sources eliminated…but this was not done. Of course, all of these problems were corrected after the fire, but why was this ever allowed to happen in the first place?
Grissom was notorious for his criticisms of NASA and its main contractor, North American Aviation, going so far as to claim that the Apollo program was so mismanaged that there was no hope of ever achieving a Moon landing. Simply firing him from the program would have been counterproductive, drawing more attention to the points he raised. A number of authors and Grissom’s son Scott Grissom suspect that he and the other astronauts were murdered by sabotage, and that the sinking of his capsule in 1961 was the first attempt on his life. Scott Grissom claimed that his father had received several anonymous death threats, and believes that a metal plate had been added to a switch, causing the capsule’s outside power source to send an electrical surge so powerful that a spark and a fire were inevitable. An engineer named Clark MacDonald agreed about the plate, but didn’t go quite so far as to claim deliberate sabotage.
But were NASA administrators ruthless enough to burn to death three of their own astronauts, only one of whom was an “enemy”? Remember, NASA is a government agency, and there is a long pattern of events showing that the US government is indeed capable of murder and mass murder: the apparent betrayal at Pearl Harbor, Jonestown (Jim Jones was closely connected to the Democrat Party machine controlling San Francisco, and even to Jimmy Carter), Waco, Oklahoma City, and 9/11. And NASA, in particular, has a sinister side to it, and, apparently, a good many secrets to cover up. Questions continue to be raised about the photographs allegedly taken by astronauts on the Moon, questions not completely answered by the hired debunkers posing as “skeptics.” While it is most unlikely that, as some have claimed, we never went to the Moon at all, some of the pictures may have been altered to hide things on the Moon which the elites wish to keep secret from the American people, and a few of the pictures may have been faked. NASA has repeatedly photographed and videotaped objects near the Earth that appear to be UFOs, only to claim that they are nothing but flakes of ice or chips of paint. Conspiracy theorists had long suspected that a cryptic question about a rocket booster trailing far behind Apollo Eleven was actually an attempt to report a UFO. A few years ago, NASA astronauts admitted on television that a strange object did fly near Apollo Eleven, and a televised videotape turned out to be a similar object seen on another Apollo mission. Unmanned spacecraft have photographed bizarre structures on the Moon and on Mars, including, not only the face and other structures in Cydonia, but tall spires on the Moon, rectilinear grid patterns at several locations on Mars, similar patterns on Mars’ moon Phobos, ponds of what appear to be meltwater on Mars, things that look like large trees or plants, and immense, translucent tubes. NASA “explains” all of these as natural formations, but it is becoming increasingly obvious to many of us that they are lying.
Author and researcher Richard Hoagland has gone so far as to suggest that NASA is controlled by three overlapping occult organizations: Masons, Nazis, and “magicians,” and that many of the missions are timed for certain dates with an occult significance or for times when certain stars are at certain angles. Needless to say, this is all rather controversial, and it is possible that, at times, Hoagland has jumped to conclusions not fully supported by the facts. But a good deal of what he says is undeniably true.
Many of America’s original rocket scientists were Germans who had developed the V-2 rocket, the first rocket capable of flying into space (suborbital). These scientists and engineers, and many other Germans brought here to assist our intelligence agencies, were part of Operation Paperclip, and, over the years, confirmation that some of the Germans were actually hard core Nazis has leaked out. Of course the American public was told that all of the scientists were decent Germans who were simply serving their country, and this is undeniably true of some of them…but others were not so decent.
The Peenemunde rockets were actually built by slave laborers in the Mittelwerk factory at the Dora-Nordhausen concentration camp, where some 20,000 human beings died of malnutrition, exposure, overwork, and outright murder, a fact that was well known to most of the scientists, including Werner von Braun, who had been made an honorary SS officer. While there is no evidence that most of the scientists ordered or participated in the ill treatment of the prisoners, neither is there any evidence that any of them protested it or argued for better treatment of the workers. Arthur Rudolph, who directed the development of the Saturn Five rocket and who had been a Nazi Party member since 1931, ran the factory and was directly involved in the atrocities, and he came to the US under the aegis of Operation Paperclip, as did space medicine experts Walter Schreiber and Hubertus Strughold, both of whom knew of and may have participated in or ordered sadistic experiments on human beings, mostly Jews…Schrieber definitely ordered some of the experiments. Werner von Braun has been accused of witnessing or even ordering abuse and execution of prisoners, but there is no hard proof. And the chief designer of the launch facilities at the Kennedy Space Center was Dr. Kurt Debus, who had written his doctoral thesis on surge voltages…like the one that triggered the fire in the capsule, while he was serving at the center.
The Masons are definitely a very powerful organization, and they are, indeed, a cult. At least four of the original seven astronauts were Masons, as were at least four of the twelve who landed on the Moon. James Webb, NASA Director from 1961 on, was a thirty third degree Mason, as was Dr. Vannevar Bush, director of the NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics), the predecessor of NASA. It also seems a bit strange that every last one of the original astronauts was of Anglo Saxon or German ancestry, groups likely to be favored by the Nazis. Of course, now NASA, controlled by political correctness and a desire for “diversity,” has gone to the opposite extreme. But why, out of all seven, was there not a single Black, Asian, Hispanic, Jewish, Amerindian, Irish American, Italian American, Polish American, or French American astronaut? Were the Nordic types the only ones qualified?
Many NASA space probes to Mars and other planets are actually designed and controlled by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, a quasi-governmental organization with close ties to Cal Tech. One of the founders of JPL was rocket scientist Jack Parsons, who was a member (along with Aleister Crowley and L. Ron Hubbard) of OTO, the Order of the Temple of the Orient, an occult group founded in Austria around the beginning of the twentieth century. It was closely associated with a similar group, the ONT, or Order of the New Templars, which later became the German Order and then morphed into the Thule Society, which created the Nazi Party. Anyone familiar with the Masons and with their predecessors, the Knights Templar, will recognize the Masonic terminology employed by these groups, indicating a probable link with Freemasonry. So NASA appears to have been largely controlled by Masons and Nazis, at least in the beginning, and to have, at the very least, an indirect connection to the ONT.
We will probably never know for certain if Grissom and the other astronauts were murdered, or if the events described above were linked only by coincidence and incompetence. But hopefully we have learned by now not to trust NASA, JPL, the government, or the elites who control them.Article Copyright© William B Stoecker - reproduced with permission.
