The Untold Story of Western Education
The Untold Story of Western Education
In the Western States a weeks long “drill” called JADE/HELM is set to take place. This is the End Game of plan begun long time ago by the NWO wealthy-elite.
“Homeland Eradication of Local Militants”
to be clear what is being “exercised” in these upcoming JADE/HELM “drills”
At cluesforum.info, they have been uncovering more “inconvenient truths” for NASA as to the living Astro-nots, who alleged we’re killed in the alleged space shuttle Challenger disaster but are now found to be happily gainfully employed in colleges and jobs related to NAZIA. (recent thread here)

shop..err shot, provided by NASA Image of what the Challenger explosion in space looked like. They cannot both be a picture of the exact same event. (also, was it not a clear blue sky day?)
The Space Shuttle Challenger disaster occurred on January 28, 1986, when the NASASpace Shuttle orbiterChallenger (OV-099) (mission STS-51-L) broke apart 73 seconds into its flight, leading to the deaths of its seven crew members, which included five NASA astronauts and two payload specialists. The spacecraft disintegrated over the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Cape Canaveral, Florida at 11:38 EST (16:38 UTC).
Approximately 17 percent of Americans witnessed the launch live because of the presence of Payload Specialist Christa McAuliffe, who would have been the first teacher in space. Media coverage of the accident was extensive: one study reported that 85 percent of Americans surveyed had heard the news within an hour of the accident.
Some experts believe most if not all of the crew were alive and possibly conscious during the entire descent until impact with the ocean.
Thereafter, recovery efforts were managed by a Search, Recovery, and Reconstruction team; its aim was to salvage debris that would help in determining the cause of the accident. Sonar, divers, remotely operated submersibles and manned submersibles were all used during the search, which covered an area of 480 nautical miles (890 km), and took place at depths of up to 370 meters (1,210 ft). On March 7, divers from the USS Preserver identified what might be the crew compartment on the ocean floor. The finding, along with discovery of the remains of all seven crew members, was confirmed the next day and on March 9, NASA announced the finding to the press.[37
The remains of the crew that were identifiable were returned to their families on April 29, 1986. Three of the crew members, Judith Resnik, Dick Scobee, and Capt. Michael J. Smith, were buried by their families at Arlington National Cemetery at individual grave sites. Mission Specialist Lt Col Ellison Onizuka was buried at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu, Hawaii. Unidentified crew remains were buried communally at the Space Shuttle Challenger Memorial in Arlington on May 20, 1986.
(“When the Shuttle Columbia disintegrated over a 800 mile stretch of Texas and Louisiana during its re-entry to Earth, it was traveling at over 8,000 MPH. From California to Florida in less than 15 minutes.
All bodies were recovered. ALL. They found enough of the space shuttle to rebuild most of it during their investigation. Compare this to when Flight 93 crashed, there should have been almost 300 tons of debris along with 10 tons of human remains. But they recovered no debris or body parts, whatsoever.”) hmm.
By the Numerology
Space Shuttle Challenger (NASA Orbiter Vehicle Designation: OV-099) was NASA’s second Space Shuttle orbiter to be put into service, Columbia having been the first…. Its maiden flight was on April 4, 1983 [=11], and it completed nine missions before breaking apart 73 seconds after the launch of its tenth mission, STS-51-L [51+L=3=9] on January 28, 1986 [1+28=11], resulting in the death of all seven crew members.
The “Challenger Disaster”:
The spacecraft disintegrated over [*9 miles above] the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of central Florida at 11:38 am [11 + 11=22] EST (16:38 UTC) [7+11].On March 8 [3+8=11], 1986, a search team found the crew cabin; it had not been destroyed in the explosion. The bodies of all seven crew members were found, still strapped into their seats….
Autopsies were done but exact cause of death was inconclusive.
* 48,000 feet = 9.09090909 miles
On January 31, 1977 [=11], it was taken by road to Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base, to begin operational testing.
The initial nine-month testing period was referred to by the acronym ALT, for “Approach and Landing Test”. These tests included a maiden “flight” on February 18 [=11], 1977 atop a Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA) to measure structural loads and ground handling and braking characteristics of the mated system.
On August 12 [=11], 1977, the space shuttle Enterprise flew on its own for the first time.Retirement:
With the completion of critical testing, Enterprise was partially disassembled to allow certain components to be reused in other shuttles, then underwent an international tour visiting France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, Canada, and the U.S. states of California, Alabama, and Louisiana (during the 1984 Louisiana World Exposition). It was also used to fit-check the never-used shuttle launch pad at Vandenberg AFB, California.Finally, on November 18 [=11+9], 1985 [total=7], Enterprise was ferried to Washington, D.C., where it became property of the Smithsonian Institution.
The remains of all seven astronauts from the Challenger disaster were discovered in the crew decks on the ocean floor. Gregory Jarvis‘ remains were discovered in the lower mid-deck along with fellow astronaut Ronald McNair and school teacher Christa McAuliffe.
During salvage operations to raise the crew deck from the ocean floor, Jarvis’ body escaped from the wreckage, floated to the surface, and disappeared back into the sea. On April 15, 1986 [=7], on the last scheduled attempt to recover wreckage, Jarvis’ body was rediscovered and returned to shore.
“Let me now take you through the latest findings concerning the “Challenger crew” which supposedly perished back in 1986. We have seen that the two “female NASA martyrs” appear to be still alive and well, Ms. Judith Resnik and Sharon “Christa Mc Auliffe, both enjoying successful Law University positions and careers – while (astonishingly enough) still using pretty much their own names – i.e. the names & surnames with which they briefly became international celebrities – as the “NASA martyrs of the Challenger disaster”

First Teacher in Space. Sharon “Christa” McAuliffe
|NASA Spaceflight Participant|
|Status||Killed during mission|
|Born||September 2, 1948
|Died||January 28, 1986 (aged 37)
Cape Canaveral, Florida
|Sharon Christa Corrigan|
|Selection||1985 Teacher in Space Project|
The Council of Chief State School Officers, a non-profit organization of public officials in education, was chosen by NASA to coordinate the selection process. Out of the initial applicant pool, 114 semi-finalists were nominated by state, territorial, and agency review panels. McAuliffe was one of two teachers nominated by the state of New Hampshire. The semi-finalists gathered in Washington, DC, from June 22–27, 1985, for a conference on space education and to meet with the National Review Panel that would select the 10 finalists.
On July 1, 1985, she was announced as one of the 10 finalists, and on July 7 she traveled to Johnson Space Center for a week of thorough medical examinations and briefings about space flight. The finalists were interviewed by an evaluation committee composed of senior NASA officials, and the committee made recommendations to NASA AdministratorJames M. Beggs for the primary and backup candidates for the Teacher in Space Project. On July 19, 1985, Vice PresidentGeorge H. W. Bush announced that she had been selected for the position. Another teacher, Barbara Morgan, served as her backup.[
It may also be entirely coincidental that SYRACUSE-Sharon is a cousin of Terry McAuliffe, the current governor of Virginia who was co-chairman of President Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign, and was chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign.”
To be sure, Terry Mc Auliffe is apparently very much concerned about NASA funding issues…

Spouse: Judith Resnik (m. 1970-1974)
Astronot McAuliffe was married to – Judge of the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire – Steven McCauliffe
He studied law at the Georgetown University Law Center from 1970 to 1973. He was a captain in the U.S. Army JAG Corps from 1973-77. From 1977-80, he was an assistant attorney general in New Hampshire. He was in private practice in Concord, New Hampshire from 1980 until his appointment to the federal bench in 1992 by President George H. W. Bush. He became Chief Judge of the New Hampshire district in 2004 on the expiration of Paul J. Barbadoro’s term as Chief Judge, serving in that capacity until 2011. He took senior status on April 1, 2013.Originally from Massachusetts, McAuliffe now lives in Concord, New Hampshire, where he serves as a Federal judge. Steve continues to serve as a Founding Director for Challenger Center for Space Science Education. He has two children, Scott and Caroline. In 1992, he married Kathleen E. McAuliffe.
He graduated from – Virginia Military Institute and Georgetown University. I’ll bet he knows Virginia Governor Terry (Sharon A. McAuliffe’s cousin ) really well.

MICHAEL J. SMITH____________ Michael J. Smith (University of Wisconsin University)
A fellow named Michael J. Smith – who bears a striking resemblance to “NASA Challenger pilot Michael J. Smith” (30-year timelapse considered), is to be found alive and well, teaching at UW (University of Wisconsin, Madison): http://directory.engr.wisc.edu/ie/faculty/smith_michael
If he were still alive, the Challenger pilot should be 69 years old today. Well, there just happens to be a 69-year-old “Michael J. Smith living in Madison, Wisconsin”: http://www.lookupanyone.com/results.php … cusfirst=1
During his 18 years in the college, Smith has advised 80 master’s and PhD students. Recently, a group of those students honored him with a surprise party and an award for excellence in holistic education. “He respects you as an equal and gives you the freedom to explore your interests, challenge his ideas and talk to other professors. His door is always open,” says a former PhD student.
Smith, who earned his PhD in industrial psychology from UW-Madison and worked 13 years in industry before joining the industrial engineering faculty, also regularly volunteers to teach additional classes to ensure coverage of critical courses.

A fellow named Richard Scobee – who bears a striking resemblance (30-year timelapse considered) to the “Challenger’s Commander Richard ‘Dick’ Scobee” is to be found, alive and well, as the CEO of a company called “Cows in Trees”. Here’s the company’s website intro, featuring a rocket-powered cow swirling around smoke in the sky – much like the Challenger Shuttle as it was seen exploding in mid-air (on TV) :
Incidentally yet interestingly, the son of “Challenger Commander” Richard Scobee (Brigadier General Richard W. Scobee, USAF) is, today, the deputy director of operations for NORAD (which, of course, was ‘accused of having failed to intercept the hijacked planes on 9/11″). Small world.
Now, the next two (seemingly-still-alive-Challenger-crew-members) are a bit of a different matter: these two look-alikes both claim to be BROTHERS of the two respective Challenger martyrs – yet both bear a striking resemblance to their allegedly deceased-back-in-1986 brothers. Could the two of them possibly just pretend to be … the brothers of themselves?

Alleged Columbia shuttle blowing up over Texas (NASA Image)
During the launch of STS-107, Columbia’s 28th mission, a piece of foam insulation broke off from the Space Shuttle external tank and struck the left wing. A few previous shuttle launches had seen minor damage from foam shedding, but some engineers suspected that the damage to Columbia was more serious. NASA managers limited the investigation, reasoning that the crew could not have fixed the problem if it had been confirmed.

More underwater experience for those Hollywood “reality” shows made underwater
During medical school she did active duty training with the Diving Medicine Department at the United States Navy Experimental Diving Unit in March 1987. After completing medical school, Clark underwent postgraduate medical education in pediatrics from 1987 to 1988 at the National Naval Medical Center. The following year she completed Navy undersea medical officer training at the Naval Undersea Medical Institute in Groton, Connecticut, and diving medical officer training at the Naval Diving and Salvage Training Center in Panama City, Florida. Clark was designated a Radiation Health Officer and Undersea Medical Officer. She was then assigned as the Submarine Squadron 14 Medical Department Head in Holy Loch, Scotland. During that assignment she dove with Navy divers and Naval Special Warfare Unit Two SEALs and performed many medical evacuations from US submarines. After two years of operational experience she was designated as a Naval Submarine Medical Officer and Diving Medical Officer

Hollywood’s longest-running “reality show”
(another University of Wisconsin and Yale Graduate!)
|T. Keith Glennan|
|Born||Thomas Keith Glennan
September 8, 1905
Enderlin, North Dakota
|Died||April 11, 1995 (aged 89)
|Education||University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire; Yale University|
|Occupation||Administrator; Scientist; University dean|
|Known for||Serving as the first administrator of NASA|
“Born in Enderlin, North Dakota, on September 8, 1905, Dr. Glennan earned a degree in electrical engineering from the Sheffield Scientific School of Yale University in 1927.Following graduation, he became associated with the newly developed sound motion picture industry, and later became assistant general service superintendent for Electrical Research Products Company, a subsidiary of Western Electric Company.During his career he was studio manager of Paramount Pictures, Inc., and Samuel Goldwyn Studios, and was briefly on the staff of Vega Airplane Corporation.”Glennan joined the Columbia University Division of War Research in 1942, serving throughout World War II, first as Administrator and then as Director of the U.S. Navy‘s Underwater Sound Laboratories at New London, Connecticut.
Amazing, isn’t it? Why would a former studio manager of Hollywood film companies (and a previous superintendent for a joint which made loudspeakers for the movie industry) be chosen by the US government to head the newly-formed NASA organization? Was there really no better, more qualified candidate to lead this immensely ambitious and “highly scientific” American space program?
Columbia University, founded by J.D. Rockefeller. Check. Paramount Studios. Check. U.S. Navy Underwater Sound Laboratories. Check. Onto NASA
Or was Mr Glennan, with his Hollywood background, a most appropriate candidate to launch what was to become, essentially, Hollywood’s longest-running “reality show”?

NASA-Judith Reznik was recruited by STAR TREK tv / moviestar Nichelle Nichols (aka “Lt. UHURA”)
“Star Trek is an American science fiction entertainment franchise created by Gene Roddenberry and under the ownership of CBS and Paramount.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Trek
Actress Nichelle Nichols was born in Robbins, Illinois on December 29, 1936. She played Lieutenant Uhura the Communications Officer on the U.S.S. Enterprise in the original series, Star Trek. …
From the late 1970’s until the late 1980’s, NASA employed Nichelle Nichols to recruit new astronaut candidates.
Many of her new recruits were women or members of racial and ethnic minorities, including Guion Bluford (the first African-American astronaut), Sally Ride (the first female American astronaut), Judith Resnik (one of the original set of female astronauts, who perished during the launch of the Challenger on January 28, 1986), and Ronald McNair (the second African-American astronaut, and another victim of the Challenger accident).
Beginning as an imaginary spaceship on a TV series, Star Trek did continue: written and produced by NASA!

Q: Where did the Challenger Astronots spend their vacation?
A: All over Florida.
Bill Cooper discovered this interesting coincidence about the names of all NASA Space Shuttles.
All Shuttles in the order of their commissioning with serial numbers in brackets:
1. Enterprise (101)
2. Columbia (102)
3. Challenger (99)
4. Discovery (103)
5. Atlantis (104)
6. Endeavour (105)
Connecting these names in their commissioning order or in the order of the serial numbers results to:
“A Challenging Enterprise of Columbia for the Discovery of Atlantis in an Endeavour”.
“In Hiroshima I was prepared for radically different sights. But, to my surprise, Hiroshima looked exactly like all the other burned-out cities in Japan. There was a familiar pink blot, about two miles in diameter.
It was dotted with charred trees and telephone poles. Only one of the cities twenty bridges was down. Hiroshima’s clusters of modern buildings in the downtown section stood upright. It was obvious that the blast could not have been so powerful as we had been led to believe. It was extensive blast rather than intensive.
I had heard of buildings instantly consumed by unprecedented heat. Yet here I saw the buildings structurally intact, and what is more, topped by undamaged flag poles, lightning rods, painted railings, air raid precaution signs and other comparatively fragile objects. At the T-bridge, the aiming point for the atomic bomb, I looked for the “bald spot” where everything presumably had been vaporized in the twinkling of an eye. It wasn’t there or anywhere else.
I could find no traces of unusual phenomena.
What I did see was in substance a replica of Yokohama or Osaka, or the Tokyo suburbs – the familiar residue of an area of wood and brick houses razed by uncontrollable fire. Everywhere I saw the trunks of charred and leafless trees, burned and unburned chunks of wood. The fire had been intense enough to bend and twist steel girders and to melt glass until it ran like lava – just as in other Japanese cities. The concrete buildings nearest to the center of explosion, some only a few blocks from the heart of the atom blast, showed no structural damage.
Even cornices, canopies and delicate exterior decorations were intact. Window glass was shattered, of course, but single-panel frames held firm; only window frames of two or more panels were bent and buckled. The blast impact therefore could not have been unusual.” -Major Alexander Seversky
Aerial view of central Hiroshima before fire bombing
If we go back to the pre-Hiroshima nuke propaganda, we find talk of areas being urned into a glass parking lot where no life would be able to grow for the next 500 years. This obviously did not happen! Here are a few photos comparing the aftermath of a firebombing of Tokyo and the aftermath of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima. Are they very different other than that of the larger Tokyo having more surviving buildings? Is it possible that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were chosen as targets for this deception instead of a more strategic target like Tokyo because they were mainly filled with cheap light paper-thin wooden structures, thereby making the devastation of the firestorm appear more complete?

science (n.) mid-14c., “what is known, knowledge (of something) acquired by study; information;” also “assurance of knowledge, certitude, certainty,” from Old French science “knowledge, learning, application; corpus of human knowledge” (12c.), from Latin scientia “knowledge, a knowing; expertness,” from sciens (genitive scientis) “intelligent, skilled,” present participle of scire “to know,” probably originally “to separate one thing from another, to distinguish,” related to scindere “to cut, divide,” from PIE root *skei- “to cut, to split” (cognates: Greek skhizein “to split, rend, cleave,” Gothic skaidan, Old English sceadan “to divide, separate;” see shed (v.)).
From late 14c. in English as “book-learning,” also “a particular branch of knowledge or of learning;” also “skillfulness, cleverness; craftiness.” From c.1400 as “experiential knowledge;” also “a skill, handicraft; a trade.” From late 14c. as “collective human knowledge” (especially “that gained by systematic observation, experiment, and reasoning). Modern (restricted) sense of “body of regular or methodical observations or propositions concerning a particular subject or speculation” is attested from 1725; in 17c.-18c. this concept commonly was called philosophy. Sense of “non-arts studies” is attested from 1670s.
Science, since people must do it, is a socially embedded activity. It progresses by hunch, vision, and intuition. Much of its change through time does not record a closer approach to absolute truth, but the alteration of cultural contexts that influence it so strongly. Facts are not pure and unsullied bits of information; culture also influences what we see and how we see it. Theories, moreover, are not inexorable inductions from facts. The most creative theories are often imaginative visions imposed upon facts; the source of imagination is also strongly cultural. [Stephen Jay Gould, introduction to “The Mismeasure of Man,” 1981]
