From the above;

"In early 1969, Shepard decided to have an operation on his ear. He went to a Los Angeles physician, checked into the hotel under a pseudonym to avoid publicity, and had a small tube planted in his inner ear. The tube was designed to drain the fluid from his ear into a spinal cavity. The operation was a success and Shepard was restored to full flight status on May 7, 1969. "

DUCK AND COVER !!!!!



From , THE STRUGGLES OF A MEDICAL INNOVATOR, Cochlear Implants and Other Ear Surgeries, William F. House, M.D. (Alan Shepard's surgeon) , 2011, pages 49 & 50;

"Sometime after his space flight, while at a meeting, he suddenly developed vertigo and vomiting and the typical symptoms of Meniere's disease. He continued to have intermittent attacks and was treated unsuccessfully medically for more than a year. The astronaut's doctor, Chuck Barry(sic), had read of my work with the shunt operation. Alan came to see me and the shunt operation was successfully completed. He was free of further attacks and for more than a year was put through centrifuge and other inner ear studies. His hearing in the involved ear had improved from a 40 dB loss to normal hearing. Chuck Barry decided to return Alan to his flight status because he was an astronaut who had very desirable skills for space flight, the "Right Stuff". He was scheduled to be the command pilot on Apollo 14 to go to the moon. He had fortunately been moved from Apollo 13, which suffered an explosion on the way to the moon and the astronauts narrowly escaped death."

I don't think they are going to escape death this time Dr. House. Not that they are going to die literally, just that they now have been confirmed in a way never heretofore established as the spineless charlatans that they are.

How is one put through more than a year's worth of centrifuge and other inner ear studies in less than 5 month's time ? Quite a trick...........

Even if you could divide greater than 12 months into 5 and find "one" as your solution, you still couldn't proclaim a man "fit to fly" after only 4 months and change at most worth of observation.

An amazing find here today, simply amazing, defiantly sound, unshakable is this proof of Alan Shepard's fraudulence as an Apollo astronaut.

have you ever wondered why he was taken OFF the apollo 13 flight? they could have done several tests on him during those few months between surgery and full flight status declaration.. and they could have continued testing him afterwards, and if they considered him still not fully prepared.. oh wait he was taken off the apollo 13 flight..

being given full flight status doesnt mean he gets to keep full flight status forever and ever.. if at any stage between the surgery and his flight it reappears he will lose his flight status.. yep you heard that right it is possible for him to lose his flight status after regaining it.

i wonder if you live in reality anymore?

...Why? Why would they do this? Why would they need him so terribly rather than get someone else?

I think there is every motive to fake the first moon landing, but don't know why they would continue, not that anythign is impossible, but this seems like a stretch. Couldn't it just be a case of him wanting something so badly that he went under the knife and then toughed through the tests until he was able to go on the mission?

So you quoted a series of secondary sources that all agree. Then you whip out a primary source that confirms the accuracy of the information. This, you conclude, proves that Apollo is fraudulent. Do you have the least idea how history actually works?

ONE BIG FAT ATOM BOMB EAR MARKED FOR ALAN SHEPARD COMIN' IN BABY !!!!



They claimed they tested Shepard for over a year before restoring him to flight status. He was TESTED AND THEN CLEARED, as only makes sense. Matter-0-fact, as above, William House said he was tested for over a year and then cleared by "Charles Barry"(sic). You wouldn't clear Alan to fly before you tested him now would you choos ? Wait until we find out when exactly they did do this bogus surgery, it might even be MAY 1969, would that be a fony moon boot kick in the jive heiny ? Regardless, read it and weep choos;

From, MOONSHOT, authors Deke Slayton, Alan Shepard , Jay Barbree, intro. by Neil Armstrong;


"Back at work, Shepard might have well as tried to conceal a bright strobe light on the side of his face as to ignore the heavy bandage. No secrets there. So he asked first Deke Slayton and then the NASA flight surgeons to keep the true need for the bandage a confidential matter among themselves. They agreed, and then worked with Dr. House to monitor his progress as the months rolled by with agonizing slowness. He improved steadily. He had waited five years for this surgery, and he waited another eight months while his hearing returned and he gradually regained his balance. At the end of that period he met privately with Dr. House. “My friend, you’re cured.” That wasn’t quite enough. But when the NASA flight surgeons ran Alan through tests bordering on the edge of brutal, they grinned at Shepard. “Dr. House is correct. You are cured. It’s amazing. Full recovery.” Alan was elated, but still it was not enough. “Which means?” he asked. They knew his hesitation. “It means,” they told him, “you are fully qualified for space flight.” "

So, from Shepard's own book now, let's take a look and see. Shepard we now know "had the surgery" sometime in 1969 before the end of May. He was cleared to fly, confirmed Meniere's symptom free, in May of 1969. Is there a perspective, a calculus under which that makes ANY SENSE WHATSOEVER ? The answer is a resounding and definite NO NO NO NO !!!

We have;

1) On some day, January 2nd through May 30th 1969, Shepard "underwent surgery". This is confirmed. It is not a point in dispute. We assume here only that Dr. House would not have operated on Alan Shepard January 1st.

2) Flight surgeons and William House together monitored Alan Shepard's progress post operatively from the time of his surgery until his announced return to full flight status in May of 1969. This is not a point in dispute. See quote above.

3) Now we run into fatal contradictions if we try to press this nonsense any more as though it might be real world. According to Alan Shepard, House pronounced him cured 8 months after surgery. Since the alleged surgery "occurred" in early January 1969 at the very earliest, 8 months from then would have been early September 1969. But according to Shepard, House's blessing was not quite enough, and so the NASA fight surgeons ran him through "tests bordering on the brutal". The testing was alleged to have gone on for more than a year, and at that time, at least according to Alan Shepard the flight surgeons "grinned at Shepard" and said, “Dr. House is correct. You are cured. It’s amazing. Full recovery.” This would have been later than September of 1970 at the very earliest.

4) As such, according to fraudulent astronaut extraordinaire, Alan Shepard's own telling, he would have been ready for a return to full flight status no sooner than early September of 1970. This based on our now well confirmed and not in dispute internally incoherent chronology of relevant events; surgery in early 1969, 8 months until House pronounced him well, and then a year or more worth of brutal tests. But HOW CAN THAT BE ? FRAUDULENT ASTRONAUT EXTRAORDINAIRE ALAN SHEPARD WAS RETURNED TO FULL FLIGHT STATUS IN MAY OF 1969 ? THIS IS 17 MONTH'S BEFORE HIS OWN BOHGUS CHRONOLOGY WOULD ALLOW.

Tisk risk risk, how fake fake fake……..

The Unreliability of "Secondary Sources"



Some say arguments such as mine above are not valid because they are grounded in "secondary sources".

But note that the MOONSHOT book of Alan Shepard and Deke Slayton was STRONGLY ENDORSED BY NEIL ARMSTRONG HIMSELF, Armstrong wrote the book's introduction and spoke to the book's value, its merit. Armstrong praised the capabilities of the book's coauthor Jay Barbree as well. Here's Neil himself, from the MOONSHOT Introductory chapter;


"Alan Shepard and Deke Slayton knew the practical aspects and the visceral feelings of flight. Both were experienced airplane test pilots. Test pilots have the responsibility for finding errors in airplane design. The may discover them during flight, but they would much prefer to identify the problems before going aloft. As two of the seven initial American astronauts, this search for perfection served them well. Deke and Alan were at the heart of the manned space program. Deke was responsible for the selection of flight crews and their preparedness to fly in space. He took an intense interest in the well being of his flock, protecting, supporting, and encouraging them. They were test pilots, and he understood them. He was a superb boss. Alan, as chief of the Astronaut Office, was responsible for day-to-day operations. Astronauts were needed for spacecraft tests, for design reviews, for newspaper interviews. With equanimity, he distributed these seemingly limitless tasks to a very limited number of “his boys.” He was an impenetrable barrier to inappropriate or untimely requests. He was “the man in the middle” and handled it well. Moon Shot is their story. Much more than the story of their flights in space, it details their central role in the most exciting adventure in history. Jay Barbree, one of the world’s most experienced space journalists, reported the triumphs and the tragedies from the dawn of the space age. He is exceptionally well qualified to recall and record the remarkable events and emotions of the time. Luna is once again isolated. Four decades have passed without footfalls on its dusty surface. No wheeled Rovers patrol the lunar highlands. Silent ramparts guard vast territories never yet visited by man. Unseen vistas await the return of explorers from Earth. And they will return. —Neil Armstrong


So if we care to in this instance for example say, argue that it may not have been the case that Alan Shepard had his ear operated on in 1969, or was restored to flight status in May of 1969, or was run through more than a years' worth of tests as William House endorsed in his own book before reinstatement, if none of this stuff is dependable, if it is all suspect because it is "secondary" in some sense, EVEN WHEN THIS MATERIAL IS ENDORSED BY NEIL ARMSTRONG HIMSELF, then we have no story, really none. Just NASA's own telling by way of recordings of PAO Jack King interjecting this or that over a NASA audio or video, the voice transcripts themselves, the mission reports themselves, the debriefing reports themselves, the tv images WITHOUT comment, the rocks WITHOUT analytic commentary/study, the photos WITHOUT anyone to say they are or are not reasonably to be believed as authentic.

Once we say that whatever someone writes ABOUT Apollo, those events in the American space-time of the 1960s cannot believed to be true because it is "secondary", even when those statements are made by the events' principals, then we are left with NOTHING , which is what my side has been arguing all along.

So, for those of you who want to discount "secondary sources", even those endorsed by Armstrong and allegedly penned, at least in part by the bogus adventure's principals, we say, "fine, have it your way, we told you all along this was a big nothing".

You have quoted a number of articles which have repeated the same erroneous information provided by Tara Gray. Shepard's surgery was undertaken in 1968.

From a 1971 newspaper article:

An operation in 1968 cured the ear

Source


After surgery to correct the ear problem in 1968, Mr. Shepard was cleared to fly again and was assigned to what turned out to be the third lunar landing.

www.nytimes.com...


In 1968, he underwent a successful operation in which a small drain tube was implanted in his inner ear. Shepard applied for readmission to active duty, and in 1969 his patience and determination were rewarded when NASA chose him to command the Apollo 14 flight to the moon.

www.encyclopedia.com...


At first it sounded a little risky but, in 1968, I finally decided on having it done.

The Role of "Authors" in the Apollo Fraud



In the Deke Slayton book, DEKE, coauthor Michael Cassutt, Tom Doherty Associates Publishing, 1994, we find on page 213 the following;

"In May 1968 he (Shepard) flew out to Los Angeles and checked into a hospital under the name "Victor Poulis". On the fourtheenth he was operated on and a silicone rubber tube was planted in his left inner ear. From that point on it was simply a matter of observation and recovery."

So here we find an exact date for Shepard's surgery, May 14, 1968. Of course none of this is true. One cannot have the same surgery in both May 1968 and then again in 1969.

Authors may knowingly manipulate facts, or unknowingly be fed and so present bogus facts to the general public. This, to "clean up" problems with the incoherent Apollo narrative. Michael Cassutt, the coauthor of DEKE, was ALSO the coauthor of Tom Stafford's book, WE HAVE CAPTURE, published 2004. In that latter book, Stafford and Cassutt wrote that Stafford saw the Apollo 12 lightning strike, whereas in the real-time world of the Apollo 12 post launch press conference, 11/14/1969, Stafford denied even looking up from his console. He said he saw nothing. Never saw any lightning personally.

Cassutt is suspicious here. It is hard for me to believe that a reasonably intelligent writer researching this stuff to help guys like Slayton and Stafford write what the coauthors initially believed would be an honest book, wouldn't catch on as time went on, and realize independently, that the thing was fraudulent, or at the very least, become suspicious of the whole thing as they started to come across facts that did not check out.Obviously, there is stuff that would have told Cassutt, even back in 1994 when the DEKE book was published, that the surgery on Shepard's ear was in 1969 not in 1968. Perhaps he simply wrote what he was told and never cross checked anything, never gave HOUSE a call, whatever. It is possible the way this works is that a guy like Cassutt has minimal contact with Slayton if any real contact at all. These coauthors may have been given a stack of materials and told to write the book BASED ON THIS and told to be sure TO INCLUDE THESE FACTS.

There are many possibilities, many roles Apollo authors play. Some are probably bona fide insiders(Harland may well be an insider), some aware and complicitous(Jay Barbree of NBC and MOONSHOT fame, Jeff Kluger of TIME Magazine, coauthor of Apollo 13 and screenplay for Howard's Apollo 13 film)these guys are relatively intelligent and probably are not "taken inside". At the same time they ain't so dumb as to know this thing ain't real and that they are profiting big time in consequence. Some of the "Apollo authors" are super naive and gamed big time, writing or making films based solely on WHAT THEY ARE TOLD. This latter extremely unintelligent, zealously gullible crew, a group completely without any critical thinking skills whatsoever includes cislunar space vacuum for brains, Tom Hanks, Ron Howard, Andrew Chaikin. These talent free pop artists have tons of money and tons of pull. The movie makers, HANKS AND HOWARD TYPES, ARE EXCEEDINGLY DANGEROUS BECAUSE IT IS THEIR IMAGES THAT CREATE THE PUBLIC'S APOLLO REALITY. FOR MOST AMERICANS, APOLLO 13 IS THE RON HOWARD/TOM HANKS MOVIE.

John Q. Public is not aware of the fact that John Young lied and lied and lied in an effort to CREATE out of the mission control vacuum this notion that he was there when the Apollo 13 O2 tank blew and so it was clearly known, according to eywiness (NOT) John Young, to be not an instrumentation problem, but a genuine hardware problem, from the get go.



John Q. Public is not aware of the fact that Gene Kranz started talking about using the LM as a "lifeboat" 15 minutes into the bogus drama and thereby showed us that the whole scenario was ANTICIPATED, that he had FOREKNOWLEDGE and as such, those of us who do think for ourselves have come to know Apollo as a dozen year running staged , complex and very very silly, but nevertheless DANGEROUS STAGED event.

John Q. Public does not know that if one looks through the Apollo 13 Cortright Commission Accident Report, one finds absolutely NO EXPERIMENTAL EVIDENCE supporting the commission's detailed claim that 1.1 pounds of Teflon and perhaps aluminum as well served as the fuel for the O2 tank explosion, a subject of an upcoming dedicated thread to be sure.

The presentations of the vacuum heads like Howard and Hanks are super dangerous 'cuz John Q. Public comes to know Apollo as the silly movies these ding dongs make. I've heard Tom Hanks was actually involved in direct efforts to speak out against our movement, the "Apollo is FRAUD and ain't it ever so obvious" movement. Can you imagine that yo-yo debating SayonaraJupiter, it would be over in a nanosecond.

This is not to say that even from INSIDE NASA there are not cracks in the Apollo defense developing, witness this month's NASA NEWS publication, enlightening to say the least, progress to be sure;




Be sure to download the full sized NASA NEWS COVER, it really is an eyeopener. The fraud is not publicly acknowledged as of yet, but we sure have made progress.

Think of the astronauts as very unskilled thespians and Apollo, as very bad but nevertheless grand in some pathetically inauthentic sense, DRAMA


 


There is so so so so much we do not know brother GogoVicMorrow. Shepard's presence added a grand element of DRAMA to the Apollo 14 mission. Recall that 13 was a botch, and now you have America's FIRST ASTRONAUT GLORIOUSLY RETURNING.

Keep in mind that this is all big time theater, Apollo was generally speaking. It is not real, so anecdotes are created, cool little stories are "told" 'bout this or that. DETAILS EXPECTED OF ANY GOOD ADVENTURE STORY ARE CREATED. One pretty ggod detail would be, might be, America's first astronaut with a balance system gone bad returns to again show his "Right Stuff".

Imagine if Apollo "really were real", there would have been all of these great little stories to tell, like the 1202 alarm tale of Armstrong on the way down, or Borman vomiting in space. Especially as regards stuff like the latter, it presses this notion of authenticity almost to an irrefutable extreme, albeit pressing a false authenticity to such an extreme. THEY ARE BARFING IN SPACE, HOW CAN IT NOT BE REAL ????? !!! ????? !!!!!!

Good fiction writers, say Marcel Proust, they draw on realities of their lives and hit us with DETAIL DETAIL DETAIL, and so their story is believable as IT MUST BE, FOR IN THAT SENSE IT IS NOT FICTION, IT IS AN ACTUAL TELLING OF PROUST'S LIFE.

People running cons like the Apollo scam know this, that detail is the key to getting over on us, over on flight officers not on the inside, Sy Leibergot types, and so forth. Providing detail is the key to getting anyone at all really to buy in. You make up interesting stories, inject them into this hokum and thereby create a sense of "reality" by providing detail, anecdotes, the very detail and anecdotes ONE WOULD ONLY EXPECT WERE IT REAL.

Also, we don't know many things about this scam and there may have been "important reasons" to put Shepard behind the pretend controls. We shall learn of them in due course. We always get our PERP, and we always get our reasons. Truth is indeed on our side.

Finally, Apollo was a cover as was Mercury, as was Gemini, for doing in space what was prohibited by way of treaty, prohibited by way of public opinion, and prohibited by way of restrictions that would be imposed by congressional oversight. Whatever it was exactly military program wise, and we can be absolutely sure it was about improving our STRATEGIC/NUCLEAR OPTIONS, it was an ongoing whatever. There was need for Apollo over time to cover for AN ONGOING STRATEGIC/NUCLEAR MILITARY NEED TO DO THINGS THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN PROHIBITED BY CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT , PUBLIC OPINION AND INTERNATIONAL TREATY SUCH AS THE OUTER SPACE TREATY OF 1967 OR THE PARTIAL TEST BAN TREATY OF 1963. Many missions were required to achieve the American and Russian nefarious goals of weaponizing space.

Take a look at my new thread VAPORIZING THE BOLSHOI Thread for an introduction to this kind of orientation, which is very much NOT speculative. It is a very simple FACT that Apollo was a cover for military stuff. The exact what it is the boys with the guns and bombs were/are up to is that which is unclear at this time.

NASA Softening



Not a temper tantrum, you should be much more thoughtful and go slow on this point. Recall how many of our readers came to the conclusion Harland was "wrong" about his QUOTE of Tom Stafford as regards the Apollo 12 launch. Harland quoted Stafford as having called the lightning "speculative" without Harland's providing a source. As it turned out, Stafford's comment was very clear and explicit, coming at the Apollo 12 post launch press conference. I then went on to find an audio tape of the press conference to not only back up, but PROVE Harland's claim. Stafford explicitly claimed in no uncertain terms that he never looked up from his console and so never even had the occasion to see the alleged lightning.



You wouldn't be getting a little nervous there buddy now would ya' ????

Anyhoo, some forum members clung to the hope Harland was incorrect back then as regards the Stafford seiing lightning issue, just as you now are regarding the Shepard surgery issue. We are almost certain to find an explicit comment by a principal that vets the date of the bogus surgery sometime in 1969. Harland does not make this stuff up, HE IS THE MAN.

Time shall tell, but when one considers the source, NEVER BET AGAINST HARLAND. HE HAS NEVER BEEN WRONG BEFORE AS REGARDS THIS SORT OF THING.

THIS SPACESHIP DONE BLOWED UP.



Did you get a chance to read the NASA NEWS article by the way Phage ? Pretty good don't you think, even the NASA publication office is softening on this stuff some.

Anyway one splices, dices, or dates it, the thing is 10 plus fony..



One last point worth making, let's say the Cassutt/Slayton book version, the DEKE version, were to be accepted as "TRUE" , whatever "true" might mean here. Again, a quote from DEKE, Cassutt/Slayton, 1994;

"In May 1968 he (Shepard) flew out to Los Angeles and checked into a hospital under the name "Victor Poulis". On the fourtheenth he was operated on and a silicone rubber tube was planted in his left inner ear. From that point on it was simply a matter of observation and recovery."

That still would mean that it would be 8 months, January 14, before House pronounced Slayton cured himself. That is per Shepard himself, 8 months from surgery to House's blessing. And per Shepard himself, he still at that time has to undergo lots of testing before cleared by the flight surgeons. Here is Shepard once again from MOONSHOT;

"Back at work, Shepard might have well as tried to conceal a bright strobe light on the side of his face as to ignore the heavy bandage. No secrets there. So he asked first Deke Slayton and then the NASA flight surgeons to keep the true need for the bandage a confidential matter among themselves. They agreed, and then worked with Dr. House to monitor his progress as the months rolled by with agonizing slowness. He improved steadily. He had waited five years for this surgery, and he waited another eight months while his hearing returned and he gradually regained his balance. At the end of that period he met privately with Dr. House. “My friend, you’re cured.” That wasn’t quite enough. But when the NASA flight surgeons ran Alan through tests bordering on the edge of brutal, they grinned at Shepard. “Dr. House is correct. You are cured. It’s amazing. Full recovery.” Alan was elated, but still it was not enough. “Which means?” he asked. They knew his hesitation. “It means,” they told him, “you are fully qualified for space flight.” "

And so had Shepard been surgerized as Slayton/Casutt claimed, in May of 1968 and not 1969, it is still January 1969 when according to Shepard himself (from the MOONSHOT book) that House pronounced him cured.

And according to Shepard's own telling, despite Dr. House's. " “My friend, you’re cured.” That wasn’t quite enough." It was only after the flight surgeons testing that they, and I quote again from Shepard's book, " grinned at Shepard. “Dr. House is correct. You are cured. It’s amazing. Full recovery.” Alan was elated, but still it was not enough. " Note from the Shepard book quote above that per Shepard himself, the testing did not begin until AFTER House's pronouncement of a cure.

And we of course know from House himself that the flight surgeons' testing was alleged to have gone on for over a year's time. From House's book again, THE STRUGGLES OF A MEDICAL INNOVATOR, Cochlear Implants and Other Ear Surgeries, William F. House, M.D. (Alan Shepard's surgeon) , 2011, pages 49 & 50;

"Sometime after his space flight, while at a meeting, he suddenly developed vertigo and vomiting and the typical symptoms of Meniere's disease. He continued to have intermittent attacks and was treated unsuccessfully medically for more than a year. The astronaut's doctor, Chuck Barry(sic), had read of my work with the shunt operation. Alan came to see me and the shunt operation was successfully completed. He was free of further attacks and for more than a year was put through centrifuge and other inner ear studies. His hearing in the involved ear had improved from a 40 dB loss to normal hearing. Chuck Barry decided to return Alan to his flight status because he was an astronaut who had very desirable skills for space flight, the "Right Stuff". He was scheduled to be the command pilot on Apollo 14 to go to the moon. He had fortunately been moved from Apollo 13, which suffered an explosion on the way to the moon and the astronauts narrowly escaped death."

So even under the most generous reading of this; surgery in May of 1968, "cure" pronounced by House January 1969, per Shepard himself, flight surgeon testing beginning AFTER Shepard was pronounced cured and this testing ongoing for one year's time, we are then at January of 1970. But we all know Shepard was restored to full flight status in May of 1969, 8 months prior.

So anyways you slice, dice, spin or lie it, the story is internally incoherent just based on chronology, not even taking into consideration the disease is not curable.

By the way, as you might imagine Phage in your more sober and private moments, I am rather not the type to throw tantrums or get upset in any way whatsoever. I am indeed supremely confident whether working in the field of medical science, swimming, biking, playing the piano, teaching.
