NASA is slowly being shut down by the government, and I think I know why…
I. For those who haven’t noticed yet, NASA is slowly shutting down
Back in 2011, I was shocked to hear that WISE — one of NASA’s most prolific telescopes — had been shut down after little more than one year in service.
WISE discovered asteroids, comets, black holes and even… brown dwarfs.
And here is an interesting fact: WISE was shut down just before comet Elenin entered our solar system. , 
Why on Earth would NASA shut down its best telescope for observing Elenin? Because there was definitely much more to this «comet» than they were ready to disclose to the general public.
The fact is that Elenin is by far, NASA’s most observed «comet», and there have been a lot of voices stating that this was just a smoke screen for something bigger… much bigger. It has been widely speculated that Elenin was in fact the infamous brown dwarf/dark star cousin of our Sun. 
Back in the 80s, NASA was still openly searching for a «tenth planet» or our sun’s «dark star» companion:
«On June 17, 1982, a NASA press release from Ames Research Center officially recognized the possibility of ‘some kind of mystery object’ beyond the outermost planets. For instance, Astronomy magazine published an article in December of 1981 entitled ‘Search for the Tenth Planet,’ and another article in October of 1982 entitled ‘Searching for a Tenth Planet.’ In addition, Newsweek covered the story of Planet X on June 28, 1982 in an article entitled ‘Does the Sun Have a Dark Companion?’ This article implied that the tenth planet actually orbits a two sun (binary star) system, but we cannot see the other sun because it is a ‘dark star.’ The article stated: «A ‘dark companion’ could produce the unseen force that seems to tug at Uranus and Neptune, speeding them up at one point in their orbits and holding them back as they pass. The best bet is a dark star orbiting at least 50 billion miles beyond Pluto. It is most likely either a brown dwarf, or a neutron star. Others suggest it is a tenth planet since a companion star would tug at the other planets, not just Uranus and Neptune.»,  There is compelling evidence that Elenin affected Earth during their alignments, which implies that this object had a far bigger mass, compared to the one of a regular comet. , 
Also, on September 29th, 2011, NASA mistakenly confirmed the existence of «Planet X», during a NEOWISE conference and confirmed it is a brown dwarf. 
II. Is NASA underfinanced?
After a meteor entered Earth’s atmosphere without being detected and exploded over Russia in February this year, injuring as many as 950 people, NASA received negative criticism for not being able to warn us about the hazard. They’ve responded to the accusations by stating that the budget for this surveillance program was not approved.
But NASA’s problems seem to be even greater than admitted.
Instead of managing their own operations, NASA has contracted private aerospace companies (e.g. Space X) to do their job for them: sending payload cargo to the ISS, placing geostationary satellites into the orbit, various army contracts, etc. 
But the gravest problem of all, in my opinion, is the fact that NASA has not built a new Space Shuttle Orbiter for the past 36 years. 
Officially, NASA has some of the biggest budgets and has access to the best engineers, software designers and technology developers in the world, yet they haven’t built a new space shuttle since 1977.
In my opinion, there is only one viable answer, which I will address in the following chapter.
III. Why is NASA being shut down?
Yesterday, (Sept. 30, 2013), the President announced that «NASA will shut down almost entirely, but Mission Control will remain open to support the astronauts serving on the Space Station». 
In my opinion, the reason why NASA was gradually shut down for the past decades is that the government has a far superior covert space program, and NASA was only used as its smoke screen.
And giving the fact that we are traversing a grave financial crisis , the government cannot afford to keep this smoke screen in place anymore.
According to an alleged anti-gravity insider, the REAL space program is operated by the US Air Force and Navy, not NASA.
In his own words:
«NASA is just a front for the public. (…) The real space program falls in the military’s domain, mainly Air force and Navy. But the nice chemical rockets sure are fun to watch… Very few people from NASA are actually in the loop. They don’t know anything.»  After reading his testimony back in 2011, I’ve noticed for the first time that the Elenin observations were indeed led by the US Navy, and all calculations and models were hosted on their official website, navy.mil (all links are now missing).
Dr. Ben R. Rich, former Lockheed Skunk Works director, once stated: «There are two types of UFOs: the ones we build and the ones ‘they’ [i.e. the ETs] build.» 
Update: US Air Force Space Command will also discontinue space surveillance system.
An article on their official website states:
«Due to resource constraints caused by sequestration, Air Force Space Command officials have directed the 21st Space Wing to prepare to discontinue operations at the Air Force Space Surveillance System by Oct. 1.
By discontinuing operations, the AFSSS would not be maintained in operational status.»  By Alexander Light, for HumansAreFree.com;
