They do a pretty good job at Dulce keeping all those black projects a secret!
There is some evidence that the Moon may have a tenuous atmosphere of moving dust particles constantly leaping up from and falling back to the Moon's surface, giving rise to a "dust atmosphere" that looks static but is composed of dust particles in constant motion.
According to this theory, moon dust particles on the daytime side of the moon can build a positive charge when radiation from the sun kicks electrons out of atoms of dust. But on the side of the moon that's dark, dust particles can gain a negative charge when they are bombarded with electrons from the solar wind. Where the dark and light sides meet, electric forces could levitate this charged dust high off the lunar surface, the researchers said.
1. You shouldn’t breathe it in. Following a lunar walk, astronaut Harrison Schmitt noted the smell of Moon dust in the air, like gunpowder. NASA pathologist Russell Kerschmann warned that prolonged exposure to Moon dust could seriously damage human lungs.
2. It wears through spacesuits. Moon dust is very abrasive and clingy. Apollo 17 astronauts had problems moving their arms properly because lunar dust had clogged up the joints, while it wore through three layers of Kevlar-like armour on Harrison Schmitt’s Moon boot.
3. It’s magnetic. Because tiny specks of iron are present in the glass shell of each lunar dust particle, magnets can be used to filter the dust out of the air and off sensitive equipment. The dust that makes up lunar soil can also be quickly microwaved into flat sheets, meaning roads and landing pads can easily be created for future missions.

Mmm, can you cite actual physical evidence of the existence of a moon base, how large it is, how large the staff is, were the implied shuttles land, and when the speculated moon base was built?
I willl either get ignored, or I see another rant to avoid the inconvenient questions that show the improbability a secret moon base ever existed.
Japan's Selenological and Engineering Explorer (Selene) probe discovered a 50-meter wide by 50-meter deep opening underneath the Marius Hills region using a radar system designed to peer underground.
The moon's surface area is about 14.6 million square miles (38 million square kilometers), which is less than the total surface area of the continent of Asia (17.2 million square miles or 44.5 million square km).

The moon base seems a bit out of a sci-fi movie. However, so was flat tvs , flat computers hi speed internet, gps among many other discoveries a work of fiction 20 or so years ago. Thirty years before that color tvs and radios before that and airplanes and cars and electricity before that.
Conspiracy theorist were made fun of for years for claiming mah bell or big brother was listening, but today you a fool for not believing. Ive heard theories of moon bases and aliens running us off the moon either way i will not make fun unless its proven otherwise by someone other than mah bell or big brother.
