A Christmas to Remember – “Merry Christmas” to Earth from the Lunar Orbit Christmas Eve

Last year I recalled a Revolutionary Christmas in A Christmas to Remember – Valley Forge – 1777.

This year I bring you one that I remember fondly from my youth! This was an Expeditionary Christmas!

Apollo 8 ‘Genesis’ broadcast 1968, extended version

LBfan0685 | December 09, 2008

The historic live broadcast made by the crew of Apollo 8 while they were in lunar orbit on Christmas Eve 1968, when they each took turns to read from the book of Genesis.
William A. Anders:
We are now approaching lunar sunrise. And, for all the people back on earth, the crew of Apollo 8 have a message that we would like to send to you. ”In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light, and God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.”
James A. Lovell, Jr.:
”And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters, and God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven, And the evening and the morning were the second day.”
Frank Borman:
”And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.” And from the crew of Apollo 8, we close, with good night, good luck, a Merry Christmas, and God bless all of you, all of you on the good earth.

This was of the Earth, for the Earth, and to the Earth in the spirit of Goodwill for all Mankind!

Video and speech can be viewed here: President Obama Unveils NASA’s new mission

One of the tall tales he still spouts “… sitting on my grandfather’s shoulders waving a flag as astronauts arrived in Hawaii…” hmm? even at today’s speech. This doesn’t explain…Hawaii 1975: “Tony Peterson
Barack moved back to Honolulu, Hawaii in 1971, aged 10, and lived with his grandparents. At Punahou High School, he met Peterson, who now works for the United Methodist Church in Tennessee.” or from Wikipedia:

“…He then returned to Honolulu to live with his maternal grandparents, Madelyn and Stanley Dunham, and has resided permanently in the United States since 1971…”

If this is the time per the The Spokesman-Review – Aug 9, 1971, how did they get on base?

Looks like his chief objective is funding Unions…again…hmm? with his “transformative agenda for NASA.” New way to move the money around again since “Climategate” scuttled original plans.

I just love this: “Obama Aims to Send Astronauts to an Asteroid, Then to Mars” Why? What is the objective with an asteroid?

Obama Anti NASA Pro Muslim

~Very Interesting~

But my gut tells me to trust:

Neil Armstrong Commander, Apollo 11

James Lovell Commander, Apollo 13

Eugene Cernan Commander, Apollo 17

Patriots, the Space Race, Freedom Train and now the Reins of Socialism

Patriots, the Space Race, Freedom Train and now the Reins of Socialism


Memories!!

What happened, who shut the door and is now trying to turn out the lights?

When the Freedom Train crossed the United States of America in 1975 and 1976, Patriots gathered to share the moment. It was the year of years for Patriots, the celebrations were far and wide. It was our 200th Birthday and we partied! We had grown in stature from rag tag bands of Patriots and Minute Men to glory in the Space Race. I was there and what a National Pride we had back then.

Fast forward to today… Patriot Tea Parties are castigated as “Racist”, Patriotism is ridiculed, and for darn sakes even the Astronauts-

Neil Armstrong Commander, Apollo 11

James Lovell Commander, Apollo 13

Eugene Cernan Commander, Apollo 17

of Hero-dom are defending space exploration.

How low will Obama go as we already know he is a Bogus POTUS aka Zero-dum. Real citizens know Patriotism and were members of the community, not under instruction of how to destroy it.

Tea Party On Fellow Patriots!
