Here’s a fascinating conjunction of events.
In this corner, Master Panderer, Shaper of Civilization and Grand Visionary, Newt Gingrich, literally promising the moon to buy a few votes in Florida from some down on their luck Cape Canaveral workers:
Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich is promising to colonize the moon.
Speaking in Florida, hit hard by the loss of a large number of space-affiliated jobs, Mr. Gingrich said Wednesday that if elected, “By the end of my second term, we will have the first permanent base on the moon and it will be American.”
Obviously a sound use of our resources as we launch our next war and spend our way out of debt. Who can doubt the sober conservative genius of this man?
Meanwhile, the redoubtable Dave Armstrong has noticed that, in addition to Bob Sungenis’ complete transformation into an anti-semitic conspiracy theorist kook whose website is dominated by headlines like

…as well as 9/11 Truther nuttiness (the Jews destroyed building 7!), creationist rubbish and geocentrist folly, Sungenis is now promoting a video by some gnostic nut who claims that the US Government hired Stanley Kubrick (a Jew of course) to fake the Moon landings. It’s a perfect storm of crazy, because it ties together not only geocentrism (moon landings, which presume a physical model based on a rotating earth, mess up Bob’s theories about geocentrism), but also brings in Bob’s beloved Jewish conspiracy theories. True, the maker of the DVD illuminates us all with treasures of knowledge like this:
Gnostics preached that there was an invasion that occurred about 3,600 BC and, about 1,600 years before the Nag Hammadi texts were buried, they wrote that this invasion was like a virus and, in fact, they were hard pressed to describe it. The beings that were invading were called Archons. These Archons had the ability to duplicate reality, to fool us. They were jealous of us because we have an essence of some kind, a soul, that they don’t possess, and the Nag Hammadi texts describe the Archons. One looks like a reptile and the other looks like an unformed baby or a foetus. It is partially living and partially non-living and has grey skin and dark, unmoving eyes. The Archons are duplicating reality so that when we buy into it, when we come to believe that the duplicated, false state reality is the real reality – then they become the victors. . . .I believe many of the stories of Jesus are actually Gnostic myths about a possible rebellion against the Archons who came down very severely on the rebel.. . .
I really hate to say this but we have all been fooled. The whole idea that some kind of messiah is going to come to save us is an Archon trick to make you think you don’t have to do anything about your present situation, no accountability. Maybe some supernatural force will come but I think you have to look at how this oppression occurred and why it was written out of history. When you begin to look back, you realize the early Christian, from the time of Jesus to the time of Constantine in 310 AD, they were preaching that they did not worship Jehovah; they worshiped the one true God. It could be argued that the early Christians were actually Gnostic followers of Jesus instead of what we, today, call Christians. The entire New Testament was completely rewritten by Constantine and all of the information on the Archons was removed and the ideas of Jehovah being a cruel god were lessened. This is a fact. The Nag Hammadi texts are older than the New Testament by 400 years. The New Testament that we have today wasn’t concocted until about 350 AD. When you go back to the Nag Hammadi, it doesn’t have the sin factor; they say what they really think. . . .
Rense [interviewer]: Many people look into the media – not the mainstream media – for information. So who are these Archons now? These are Talmudic Zionists, to a large degree. They are part of it, perhaps they are the central core of it. We need to start looking at the name values are and where their DNA says they came from, the Czarian Empire. They adopted Judaism and used it like a stick to beat people and hide behind at the same time which is a great tragedy for true, honest and Jews of good heart and there are millions of them. [my bolded emphasis] . . .
But what’s a little crazy anti-Christian historical illiteracy when you get to say that the Jews are lizard people in disguise faking moon landings to discredit geocentrism?
Me: I think Newt and Bob Sungenis need to be America’s first pioneers to the lunar colony. Or perhaps the term should be “lunatic asylum”.
By the way, you will note that Sungenis is a big favorite with E. Michael “Jews are ‘enemies of the entire human race’” Jones, author of The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit, who is the guy Marc Brammer put in his “think tank” to think great thoughts about the newer, better, purer Church he and Michael Voris are laboring to create.
