NASA Denies It Has Child Labor Camps on Mars

It’s not hard to believe that NASA isn’t telling us everything about what goes on in space or that it may already know of the existence of other life forms but is covering it up. It’s a stretch to believe that NASA staged the moon landings in a studio and is currently doing the same out in some desert for the Martian rovers. However, it’s incredulous to consider a claim that for at least 20 years the agency has been kidnapping children and sending them to Mars to work in slave camps. What’s even more unbelievable is that NASA felt it had to publicly deny this accusation after it was made on the home of unbelievable claims … Alex Jones’ InfoWars.

“There are no humans on Mars. There are active rovers on Mars. There was a rumor going around last week that there weren’t. There are. But there are no humans.”

Guy Webster, a spokesperson for Mars exploration at NASA, was compelled to immediately speak to the Daily Beast, a media company that’s part of Newsweek, to officially deny a slew of incredible and offensive claims made on InfoWars by Robert David Steele, an alleged CIA operative, an activist for open-source intelligence and a presidential candidate for both the Reform Party and the Libertarian Party – he didn’t get either nomination. However, that didn’t stop Jones from booking him on the show to make statements like this:

“We actually believe that there is a colony on Mars that is populated by children who were kidnapped and sent into space on a 20-year ride. So that once they get to Mars they have no alternative but to be slaves on the Mars colony.”

Really? If NASA has the ability to cover up something like that, the CIA should be using NASA scientists as operatives instead of people like this guy. While he correctly points out that video feeds from rovers and the ISS seem to cut away just as the cameras are approaching something unusual, his commentary deteriorates into the depths of depravity with these accusations:

“It goes straight into terrorizing them to adrenalize their blood and then murdering them. It also includes murdering them so that they can have their bone marrow harvested as well as body parts.”

Sadly, this show and its host apparently command such an audience that NASA, rather than shaking its collective heads and walking away, felt it had no choice but to respond to these claims with vehement denials.

Yes, there are cover-ups. Yes, there are top secret files. But a story about sending kidnapped children to slave camps on another planet for the purpose of harvesting their bone marrow is horror porn, not news. The news is that we’ve sunk so low that this moved a government agency to actually address it.

What have we become?
