#Google Signs $1 Billion #NASA Lease

#Google Signs $1 Billion NASA Lease

For space exploration and robotics.

Google has signed a $1.16 billion deal with NASA to use Moffett Airfield in Northern California for space exploration and robotics development. The tech giant will also pay $200 million to restore Hangar One, which preservationists have been trying to save for years. Google was already using Moffett Airfield to base its private aviation fleet, but the company has not gone into too many specifics about what will be the main projects at its vast new space. However, industry experts say it’s not hard to guess the companies’ aim. “Google has a growing interest in robotics, drones, balloons, and anything that can beam Internet down from the sky—and this is a great location to test many of those things,” writes The Verge.

Bush Family Hijacked US and Got Away With It, Even if George W. Loves His Dad

Bush Family Hijacked US and Got Away With It, Even if George W. Loves His Dad | News in english | Scoop.it
Juan Carlos Hernandez's insight:

Bush Family Hijacked US and Got Away With It, Even if George W. Loves His Dad

BuzzFlash started publishing online in May of 2000, so the site was ready to pounce in outrage when five infamous justices of the Supreme Court stole the presidency for George W. Bush in the late winter of that year. 

The passion of opposition to the illegitimate presidency of Bush - and the commencement of the never-ending war in Iraq, opposition to social and economic equality, increased voter suppression and the continued packing of the federal courts with right wing ideologues, among other egregious assaults on democracy – ignited a simultaneously furious and dismayed response among progressives. At that time – up to around 2003 - there were not many daily internet sites that focused on the politics of the United States from a progressive perspective, and it was like picking low-hanging fruit to expose the lies, hypocrisy and manipulation of the US public by the Bush administration. That, of course, includes the still many unanswered questions about why Bush personally ignored warnings - including a CIA briefing - about the potential for 9/11 occurring.

In 2014, there are an untold number of sites breaking political stories about the truth behind covert government actions and the backstory behind public relations tales from the White House, Pentagon and the CIA. But in the first years of the new millenium, there were just a small number of sites like BuzzFlash (including Truthout) daily focused on exposing the dishonesty of the unelected White House. It wasn't that difficult: the corporate mainstream media - such as the megaphone for White House claims of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, Judith Miller of The New York Times - transmitted Bush administration assertions much as stenographers would. 

For sites such as BuzzFlash and Truthout, all one had to do was go to secondary sources outside of the United States or articles in smaller papers to shed light on the truth: read from non-corporate media that were not part of the incestuous DC media-government collusion and connect the dots. The reality was that the primary sources used by the likes of The Washington Post and The New York Times were echoing misinformation, while the secondary sources available from blogs and news sites throughout the world were more reliable than our own mass media.
