AMERICA put a Man on the Moon, NOT the World

As a youngster I was a huge fan of the U.S. space program. I remember watching with rapt attention each and every space launch our country made, going all the way back to the beginning with the Mercury program. I followed our progress with Gemini, and then the Apollo program and the race to the moon.
I was genuinely saddened when the three astronauts were killed in the Apollo training accident. To me it was like losing family members. I had grown so close to these fearless men who carried the weight of the nation’s reputation on their shoulders. The subsequent losses of the Challenger and Colombia Space Shuttle crews were devastating as well, even though I was no longer a young boy and my life had taken me in a different direction than becoming a ‘star voyager’.
I can recall sitting in front of the family television completely engrossed in what was happening on July 20th, 1969 nearly two hundred forty thousand miles away. A sense of pride welled up inside me as Neil Armstrong’s ghostly figure descended the ladder of the Lunar Module, as he prepared to take his first step onto the surface of the moon.
And I can recall his words as clearly today as when they were spoken all those years ago. It felt as though he was talking to me directly, encouraging me by his act to ‘push the edge of the envelope’ and achieve great things.
To me the astronauts were genuine heroes, risking their lives to propel the United States forward in our race against the Soviet Union for supremacy in outer space. It was important to America to be the first to land a man on the moon, as we were challenged to do by President John F. Kennedy back in 1962.
In 1983 the movie ‘The Right Stuff’ was released and depicted the early years of the U.S. space program and the men who stepped forward to become the heroes I came to admire and emulate. I can still watch the movie after seeing it a dozen times, and still feel a sense of pride in those men and what they achieved for our country.
With the release of the recent Hollywood production, ‘First Man’ we are seeing the revisionist history that has become endemic in our society nowadays. Taking an American achievement and lessening it, ‘spreading the wealth’ in a sense as Barack Obama once famously said. It’s as though having pride in being an American and in our great accomplishments is something to be ashamed of.
Well I’m sorry if it offends anyone, but putting a man on the moon and bringing him safely back home again was and will always remain a singular American achievement, period. WE DID IT! No matter how much Hollywood or the progressive liberals try to lessen America’s ownership of that event.
Though this new release about man’s first landing on the moon hasn’t hit the theaters yet, I’m pretty sure that I won’t be rushing out to spend a single nickel to do so. Since in the film the planting of the flag of the United States onto the moon’s surface has been omitted from the production. It seems they think the moon landing was something of a ‘community effort’ more than a truly American accomplishment. It reminds me also of what Barack Obama once said about ‘American exceptionalism’, that it was no different than any other country’s ‘exceptionalism’.
Sadly that is what our youth are being indoctrinated with in America’s schools nowadays. They’re being taught that Americans are inherently bad people. Racist slave owners who oppress people around the world, exploit their resources and their people, as we engage in wars of conquest in foreign lands. Lessons taught once again by proxy by Barack Obama.
Likely most school kids couldn’t even tell you about Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s fateful trip to the lunar surface some forty years ago. Much less that it was AMERICA that did it! Instead of feeling pride in our American achievement, they would probably only somehow feel shame since that’s how they’re supposed to feel about being an American in today’s world.
As for me I will continue to feel pride in being an American and in the countless achievements we have made over the years, both in outer space and closer to home, contrary to what unpatriotic people might think. And when I look up at the moon at night I’ll continue to well up with pride knowing that WE DID IT, and no one else! And our flag is still planted on the moon’s surface to this day.
And Hollywood nor anyone else can ever take that away from us.

True Parent Patriots Act Against Racist, Anti-America Agenda

True Parent Patriots Act Against Racist, Anti-America Agenda

Parents have responsibly refused to stand idly by as arrogant academic ideologues teach their kids to judge one another by the color of their skin rather than the content of their character; malign their country as systemically and irredeemably evil rather than celebrate America’s virtues; and witness their tax money wasted on failed schools, failed curricula, and failed outcomes…

The Soviet State, American Style!

The Soviet State, American Style!

With mandates’ success, political orders for social control will continue to grow. We are experiencing tyranny by dictatorship. Biden’s administration is a crime syndicate specializing in bribery and extortion. Demanding the entire population be injected by unproven but already demonstrably dangerous vaccines, is revealing to us the very essence of the Soviet state, American style. If they get away with it, the mandated vaccinations will be just the beginning…

The Covid Gene Therapy Shot and Its Approval or Not

The Covid Gene Therapy Shot and Its Approval or Not

As if the stench wasn’t enough, until this fake Pfizer approval, pushed through with the complicity of a fake president, elected by fake votes, and pushed by the fake media, until today the fastest approval for a vaccine ever took five years – which was for Ebola, that kills ~50% of its victims. By contrast, we have around just six months of safety data for the Covid shot until approval, and the survival rate is 99.997 if you are under 21 and not far below that even up to age 70…

America’s Decline is a Choice

America’s Decline is a Choice

Many in America think that America needs to be brought down to size. Barack Obama once said, “My legacy will be an America brought down to the level of the rest of the world,” and though Obama was not able to realize this ambition, the Biden Administration is moving full speed ahead with plans to weaken the United States militarily and economically, destroying the wealth of the American people in the process…

BLM Joins MAGA in Extraordinary Backlash against Dems

BLM Joins MAGA in Extraordinary Backlash against Dems

Marching alongside residents like John Tabacco, NYC Conservative Activist and host of the Newsmax show “Wiseguys” were equally incensed New Yorkers like Rev Kevin McCall, a BLM activist. Where MAGA rally-goers generally remain lawful and peaceful, unlike what mainstream media likes to portray, BLM protesters have no such parameters. McCall “made it clear to the crowd that sometimes civil disobedience is the only way to get the government to listen.”

19 Biden Policies Designed to Destroy the Middle-Class

19 Biden Policies Designed to Destroy the Middle-Class

The dark forces behind the scenes working to reshape the U.S. are not stupid. It’s clear they’re working to destabilize society, with the long-term objective being to get them the power to transform America! The enemy of the Biden Cabal are clearly those terrible middle-class deplorables who cling to their guns and Bibles. It’s all those creepy people who go to work every day, pay their taxes, obey the law…

School Transfers Gender-Fluid Boy to Another School to Rape Again

School Transfers Gender-Fluid Boy to Another School to Rape Again

The latest mutation is “gender fluid” people – you can be a man one day, a woman the next day, then back to a man, and then whatever suits you. The predictable result? Rapists can now claim to be female whenever it helps them to rape. This rapist wore a skirt, entered the girl’s restroom, then raped a girl. Twice. Enabled and abetted by the school authorities, who knowingly transferred him to another school where he promptly committed the same crime all over again…

Biden Blunders Make Trump Tweets Sound Like Music

Biden Blunders Make Trump Tweets Sound Like Music

Politically biased private communication monopolies have canceled social media accounts of a duly elected sitting president, along with blocking scandalous information regarding foreign influence-peddling by his opponent just prior to the 2020 election. First Amendment rights are being routinely abridged through an ever-creeping ideologically…
