Mike Bara is wrong about kksamurai

         Mike Bara performed yet again on internet radio last friday. This was a 90-min drone-athon on the Inception Network, semi-wittily titled The Stench of Truth. Host/interviewer was Ted Torbich.

        Want to guess how much truth Torbich got from Mike? You're right — none. It was all the usual stuff we've heard before. Glass on the Moon is 2x stronger than steel (no it isn't, that's nonsense). There are unmistakable glass towers at Sinus Medii (no, it's crap on Hoagland's scanner glass). Bla bla bla. Paperclip, spire, robot head. Bla bla bla. The reverse of the truth.

        A goodly slice of time was spent on the non-existent Daedalus Ziggurat. Bara came right out and called Stuart Robbins a liar, in reference to Robbins' rebuttal of Bara's claims. He said that his critics use personal insults in preference to logical argument, when we all know it's Bara who calls the critics douchebags and morons. Females are called too ugly to reproduce, and males are called homosexual.

        None of this is new. One little nugget that was new, was Mike Bara denying that the image showing the ziggurat was originally the work of Terry James, a.k.a. kksamurai. I can refute that very easily. Here's the original:


I got that from Holloworbs. Easy. I believe it dates from around 2000.


Update:
        Using the wayback machine, Terry James' work can be narrowed down to 1999. On May 4th he published a "coming soon" announcement for this book, to be self-published by Radical Science Publications:

        I can't confirm that the book was ever published, or that the ziggurat image was included. Neither does kksamurai specifically admit that he shopped the ziggy. In fact, he writes that someone called Frank made the scan. That would be Frank Gault, who had a large collection of Apollo imagery inherited from his ex-NASA father. Frank was an accomplished artist, and at the time a promoter of the 'Face' on Mars, although he later became a skeptic.

It's pretty rotten to capitalize on somebody's efforts and not give them proper credit for it.

FlightSuit said...

I'm gonna watermark all my Photoshopped UFO hoaxes right now so Bara can't steal them and make them the basis of his next, um, "scientific paper."

astroguy said...

He actually did make that claim before. I want to say on his C2C interview, but it could have been on one of the many others that I heard that you pointed me to last year. It was a single sentence, or perhaps two, but it's not 100% new that he's denying it. It was along the lines of, "Some people have said that it's one of these fakes someone by the name of kksamuri did in the 1990s, but I saw it way before then."

As Turkish Bara has defamed Stuart on air,I think it would be appropriate that the show host should at the very least, allow Stuart a right of reply... However, we're in the realms of 'bollox rule okay' broadcasting, so what is the likelihood?

Mike Bara fans who (like me) are banned from his main Fartbook page will be missing this entertainment, posted today:

=========================

LIFEFORCE CASTING CALL: (send resumes and photos here)

Table Read is friday
Matt Hamilton: Male lead, 40’s, Caucasian. Engineer. On his 10th wedding anniversary he gives his wife diamonds and tells her he’s ready to start a family... she gives him divorce papers.
Honey: Female lead. Mid 20’s, Caucasian\Latina. A jaded Los Angeles stripper. Dumped by her current boyfriend who had promised to make her a movie star, she returns to the place she thought she had left behind forever, the dingy strip club called the Lickety Split. Abused by an alcoholic father, she is confronted with the reality that she has never been valued for what’s in her heart, only what pleasure her body can give to others.
Linda: Stripper. Early 30’s, Caucasian\Latina. Not over the hill but at the summit. A fading flower. She tries to help Honey escape the life that she herself has grown addicted to.
Paul: Early 40’s engineer with no game who still believes in love.
Sherri: Bartender at the Lickety Split. Probably warm in her day but never hot.
Gene: Strip club bartender and Sex Pistol’s wanna be. Closer to 50 than 40 with a British accent by way of San Dimas.
Bill Baxter: Late 40’s, shell-shocked engineer and Veteran. A very strange little man.
Karen: Engineer chick moonlighting as a stripper, girl next door. Bill’s niece.
Lexxi: LA stripper\porn star, early 20’s.
Mike Dickinson: Middle aged, pudgy, burnt out engineer.
Jose’: Bill’s nemesis from the networking group.
DJ: Club DJ, when his ship came in he was at the airport mopping the floors.
Art: Asian, computer geek.
Doug: Tech support team leader. Tries to be everyone's friend and hates management. Think Smithers from the Simpsons.
Abner: Early 50's attorney with nearly no life.
Violet: Stripper. A Honey lookalike.

Oh good, he's using real names now:

FlightSuit said...

I don't get it, is Mike Bara trying to make a movie?

ABOUT STRIPPERS?

Oh. My. God.

expat said...

Well, it's the milieu he knows best. That and burnt-out engineers.

FlightSuit said...

"Sherri: Bartender at the Lickety Split. Probably warm in her day but never hot."

"Sunshine: Pudgy stripper who should be working at Costco. She’s a 3 and thinks she’s a 10."

Bara's contempt for women really does shine through in everything he does, doesn't it?

FlightSuit said...

I hope Sara Shanae is being offered a juicy part in this epic. She shouldn't have to audition, though. She's more than paid her dues just by posting all those fawning compliments on Bara's Facebook.

Strahlungs Amt said...

Looks like Mikey's loving wife Sara is worried about unblockable messages from Obama on her iPhone.

She's posted the following title to the following article on a page called "Truth Tribune".

https://www.facebook.com/TruthTribune

Nowhere does the article mention President Obama.

AT&T TO SEND TEXT MESSAGE ALERTS FROM PRESIDENT OBAMA THAT iPHONE USERS WILL BE UNABLE TO TURN OFF!

Stay Tuned.....

Trained Observer said...

I think the casting call is just a ploy to get strippers to send in their personal information and photographs. Have you ever run across a more depressing cast of characters?

Chris Lopes said...

@Trained Observer

That was my call too. He's obviously playing casting director in search of women who have IQ's lower than their bra size.

Strahlungs Amt said...

So what does Sara Bara, his loving wife, have to say about this?

Strahlungs Amt said...

I'm surprised he hasn't included the following characters who never score in the whole movie.

Bloated Sack of Protoplasm,
Paid Shill 4 NASA.
Blithering Idiot.
Dooshbag.
Old space scientist who never scores, huh huh huh...

Next thing, Super Mikey appears in the room and shags all the strippers himself.

It's far too autobiographical is the cast list. The best written work is by those who write about the subject they know well. In a perverse way, Bara might shine on the background to this little epic, as lng as he gets a goood editor to blue pencil the references to douchbag, Turkish prisons and inability to reproduce due to asthetics. Funny really in a 'Never was writer who aspired to be, but instead curled up in his own misery' sort of way.

Binaryspellbook said...

Although Our Mikey Boy claims the opposite he really has an issue with women. Not only did he recommend that a woman critic not reproduce, he also referred to her as a "cunt." He did delete his Facebook comment shortly thereafter but not before I got a screenshot. He is quite vile. This behaviour is beneath real men.

Strahlungs Amt said...

"Lickety Split" - WTF??? The guy's got imagination.

The funny part is he expects people to take him seriously after that. I mean, I understand some lonely pervert posting naughty pix and sexist comments on facialbook at 3am. But an author and scientist who expects to be taken seriously????

The least he could do is get a second account under a fake name.

Then again, it's not like his audience is made up of MIT graduates.

expat said...

Interesting update just added.

expat said...

Mike's table reading today is at the LAX Holiday Inn. I just messaged him to suggest that, since he's in the area, he might mosey along to check the occult symbology at the intersection of Isis and 33rd...

Strahlungs Amt said...

To which Mike reminded you that you're a blithering idiot (seriously - last time I heard those words used was in a British movie from the 1950s) and a homosexual who should give John Travolta a massage. Case Closed.

Plus, how dare you disturb his busy schedule interviewing potential stripp... uh, actresses. Got to invest that money from Ancient Aliens in a good business plan.

Strahlungs Amt said...

This just in. A super high resolution image of the surface of Mars. Hours of fun for anomaly hunters everywhere.

expat said...

Yes, a really brilliant piece of work.

expat said...

When Gale crater was first announced as the prime landing site, Hoagland said very confidently on C2C that Sharp mountain was a previously-inhabited "arcology." What's he going to say when we start getting detailed images? Silly question -- of course, he'll say nothing at all and we can rely on George Noory not to even raise the topic. He gets away with so much.

Trekker said...

Strahlungs Amt - have you found the 'dish-shaped' rock that looks very like a Billy Meier UFO, complete with porthole? I'm surprised the fans haven't been all over it yet. It's highlighted in this link: http://www.foxnews.com/science/2013/06/19/curiosity-takes-astonishing-billion-pixel-image-mars/

jourget said...

My favorite pre-landing Hoagland Curiosity prediction was that the rover had "headlights" on it for exploring ruins-meaning the four white LEDs on the MAHLI arm camera. I had a hilarious mental image of the rover driving through Hoagland's arcology using those dinky little LEDs to illuminate gigantic caverns.

Trained Observer said...

Great find with the new kksamurai information expat. I'm of the opinion that the origin of theories about artificial structures on the Moon lies in poor imaging and photographic reproduction. Bad prints from the Consolidated Lunar Atlas, LROC, and Apollo program are largely responsible. That and folks looking at these photos who just don't know what they are looking at and are trying to extract more information and detail than is contained in them. I think they might provide great inspiration for sci-fi and fantasy authors, but make for poor science.

Hoagland and Bara a liars and thieves. I still have my original images but don't have time for their BS. I am kksamurai aka terry james aka rah

What a chuckle. He didn't see squat back then. I didn't mess withe the data other than colorizing. And Frank didn't mess with it either.

expat said...

Hey, Terry, TVM for posting here. Did that book "Let's Get Back to the Moon" ever get published?

SaraShanae said...

The fact that so many of you thought to involve me (Sara Shanae/Sara Bara) in your rants about how jealous you are over Mike's success, show's how intimidated you all are by him, his previous works, his current success, and his future projects. I'd just like to thank you all for taking time out of your days to mention him, discuss him, and with every comment, make this article appear in more search results. As his wife, I am very proud of Mike. I'll continue to encourage him in his projects, and take great pride in being by his side as he only grows more successful. As for your attacks on me and my website (truthtribune.com) I'd like to thank you for that as well. You linked people to my site! The more hits, the more money I make. So with sincere gratitude, I thank you. Please reply to this comment as well, so that both Mike and I can benefit from the publicity, since in reality, there's no such thing as a bad version of that. Thanks again, lovers! Peace, love and harmony to you all! :)

expat said...

I love you too, Sara, and you're very welcome to the net traffic.

Next time you're in a post-coital situation, ask Mike how many of the 135 Space Shuttle launches conform to his Ritual Alignment Model.

SaraShanae said...

Yes, because if NASA was trying to perform ritual launches/landings, without the public's knowledge, they'd only ever do them as such, because that's not obvious. You clearly know very little about secret societies or the way that our government and its programs work.

expat said...

Well, Sara, that's probably true. On the other hand, I do know a great deal more than your Facebook-husband about launch windows.

Mike stated "NASA always seems to want to land or launch when the stars are in favorable positions."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKeXswde-8s (at 04:07)

What I'd like to know is WHICH of the 135 missions conformed. Please ask.

expat said...

Another thing you might ask, dear, is how the discovery of HD 95086 b can possibly support the solar fission model of planetary formation. HD 95086 b is just an isolated planet, and the model depends on planets forming in pairs.

Please ask.

SaraShanae said...

Expat - Mike is very gracious when it comes to talking with fans, and he'll answer just about anything you want if you do him a favor or two, especially if it involves fellatio. So maybe you should get down on your knees and ask him yourself? ;)

I'm not your messenger girl. I'm not surprised that you'd ask me to ask him for you though. I can understand that you're too intimidated to actually do your own work. I can tell by your website, sorry "free blow", as well, that you have no idea how to form even a single ORIGINAL thought of your own. If Mike Bara wasn't around and doing what he is doing, you wouldn't have shit to stand on.

Here's a thought: Since you're so incredibly knowledgeable in all of these areas, why don't you write your own book and get published? But you and I both know why you haven't and wont do that. You don't know how to create anything. All you know is how to mooch off of other people's work.

Better put on those knee pads, chump. Looks like it's going to be your only option for success. Mike's jizz comes with a LOAD of knowledge. Sucking one off might do you more good than stalking him online ever could, anyways. ;)

expat said...

Sara, dear, I'm the author or co-author of seven published books, but I'm not going to tell you either my pen name or my real name, so you'll just have to take my word for it.

As for the fellatio, I leave that entirely to you.

Ms Emma Peel said...

"how jealous you are over Mike's success,show's how intimidated you all are by him....".

SaraShanae,You are scaring the kids and pissing off the grownups.If Mike Bara aspires in becoming a legit "author",he has to submit himself to scientific & academic peer reviewing,but I am afraid his "68 million yr old "robot head" wont pass the litmus test.A far as I am concerned,everything he ever produced is pure junk & bunk.Don't take my word for it,do your own homework.The vast majority of UFO buffs consider Bara`s "research" as absolute garbage.There is nothing remotely original to what Bara does.He merely appeals to an audience which has the collective wisdom of a bag of doorknobs.

Ms Emma Peel said...

I am having difficulty understanding the motivation behind SaraShanae`s sexual innuendos.The lady is suffering from affection deficit disorder?.

Ms Emma Peel said...

"Mike is very gracious when it comes to talking with fans, and he'll answer just about anything you want ....".

Of course Mike is "gracious" with his tiny entourage of groupies.He brings home the bacon (makes a living) by exploiting their stupidity,utter ignorance & gullibility.Mike Bara is not a rocket scientist but like any other snake oil peddlers,he understands the mechanisms of market economy.Personally I don't have any problem with individuals abusing human stupidity.Life is a jungle & nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the general public. Although Mike Bara doesn't believe in the Darwin theory of evolution,he is the personification of Social Darwinism.He has been quite successful at milking the imbecilic crowd.On many occasions I personally complimented him on his achievement

expat said...

Fake Facebook wives are all jolly good internet fun, but WARNING: obviously obscene comments will not get published.

FlightSuit said...

Expat, does that mean I can't enquire about Mike Bars's jizz load of knowledge?

It sounds intriguing.

FlightSuit said...

I've always rejected the assertion that Sara was merely a Mike Bara sock puppet account, but I gotta say, her style of argumentation does sound suspiciously like Bara's voice.

Which proves nothing, of course.

I mean sure, it's possible Bara just happened to marry a woman who also spits homophobic, second grade insults.

It's possible.

Ms Emma Peel said...

I shall do my best at keeping the conversation within the perspective of "decent boundaries" but I have to reply to Sara`s reference to performing oral sex on Mike Bara.
The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court Explanatory Memorandum defines Crimes against humanity,as "particularly odious offenses in that they constitute a serious attack on human dignity or grave humiliation or a degradation of human beings".This is all I have to say....

Ms Emma Peel said...

Flightsuit.
Sara is real,she is a strange creature who happens to be attracted to weird male characters.She is not alone,some women are even attracted to psychopaths,sociopaths & serial killers.A couple of years I worked on a psychological anthropology study.I befriended & regularly held conversations with
Samantha Spiegel.She was an adorable girl but deeply confused.As far as I know she is doing fine,now.Le temps guérit toutes les blessures....

Ms Emma Peel said...

Correction:"a couple of years ago...."
