Did Israel Down a Russian Jet Over UNSC Smackdown? (UPDATE)

This may well be the worst timed iconic "accident" since 9/11

All you have to do to understand why things happen is look at who profits from events and who believes themselves to be above the law.

President Putin has just ordered an inquiry into the downing of the TU 154.  “Terrorism unlikely,” which means not just that it is not ruled out but the timing tied to Israeli rage might well just leave Tel Aviv a smoking ruin.

We believe that Israel would use terrorism, long a specialty of their security services, to avenge what they consider wrongs.  Illegally a nuclear state, openly involved in massive war crimes through ethnic cleansing and bombing illegally occupied territories, openly commanding ISIS forces in Iraq and Syria, this is the Israel of today.

Long powerful in news media, Israel virtually controls the fake news as well and now seems to have orchestrated the accusations against Russia for putting Trump into office.  Now it is clear to everyone, he is Israel’s man, not Russia’s.

Similarly, the Malaysian airliners disappearing, that has fingerprints as well.

The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission (KLWCT), also known as the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal, is a Malaysian organisation established in 2007 by Mahathir Mohamad to investigate war crimes. The KLWCC was instigated as an alternative to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, which Mahathir accused of bias in its selection of cases to cover.

In November 2013, the tribunal found the State of Israel guilty of genocide of the Palestinian people and convicted former Israeli general Amos Yaron for crimes against humanity and genocide for his involvement in the Sabra and Shatila massacre.

4 Dead In WA Plane Crash

Dec. 30, 2016  Neil McNamara

 

"SEATTLE, WA - Four people died when a plane from Seattle crashed into a ravine near Dabob Bay sometime Thursday night, according to state officials. Search crews were able to locate the plane Friday morning using its emergency transmitter.

The plane, a single-engine Cessna, left Boeing Field in Seattle on Thursday night headed to Port Angeles and lost contact with air traffic control around 6:44 p.m. The cause of the crash could take days to determine, officials said."

Information about the Russian plane crash on Dec. 25, 2016.  Later on, MH 370 is also mentioned.

THE LATEST ON THE DOWNED RUSSIAN SOCHI AIRLINER

Joseph P. Farrell    Jan. 3, 2017

THE LATEST ON THE DOWNED RUSSIAN SOCHI AIRLINER

"Remember the Russian airliner that went down with the musicians of the Russian Army chorus on board, shortly after taking off from the Black Sea port and resort city of Sochi? Well, this story I simply have to blog about this week, because our source article comes from no less than Israeli News Live, and it may have some bearing on another "pet story" and speculation of mine, the still-mysterious-and-unresolved case of Malaysia Air Flight 370.  Here's the story:

Did a Radio Electronic Attack down Russia TU-154 December 25, 2016?

There's so much food for thought and speculation here, that one scarcely knows where to begin. But note the opening paragraphs of this article:

 

The evidence is starting to come in and though the Kremlin has not made an official announcement as to the cause of the crash of Russia’s military passenger plane the TU-154 off the coast of Sochi – it is starting to look more and more like an act of War according to some experts. We recently listened to a Russian talk show where the guest was a Russian Reserve Colonel, he was the first to suggest that the plane was downed intentionally. The Colonel pointed out that the Pilot had time to contact the flight tower to report problems but failed to do so, he noted that the plane has 3 engines and could still fly with only two, many other points he made that got my curiosity up.

Today Pravda reported according to different experts that the fateful flight may have been downed by a “Radio Electronic Attack” . The article addressed all the evidence that had come to light as of the publication of this article. Life News reported that the flight data recorder had the cockpit crews final words on it: “the flaps, damn it!” followed by “Commander, we’re going down!”according to Life News, citing its source. These words add to the fact that a witness standing on the shore stated that she could hear the engines of the jet then suddenly that stopped followed by a huge splash sound, no doubt the fuselage hitting the Black Sea, the witness testimony was noted in the online French news source; La Cause Du Peuple. This French source also noted:

We saw in our article It’s the CIA that caused the catastrophic fall of the Russian plane in the Black Sea, that this fall is due to a radio-electronic attack commissioned by the CIA. According to the Russian expert Alexander Artamonov, the executants could be French ships that were present in the Black Sea.(Emphases in the original)  >>    https://numidia-liberum.blogspot.cz/2016/12/confirmation-le-crash-de-lavion-russe.html?spref=tw 

Notice what we have:

1) The source of the view that the flight may have been intentionally downed by some sort of "Radio Electronic Attack" comes from Komsomolskaya Pravda, which remains the official organ of the Communist Party of Russia. Take this for what it is worth, for Pravda is not known for its close adherence to the truth in many cases, and in some cases may be viewed as a kind of tabloid. On the other hand, however, it has also from time to time run very important stories, and its connection with the upper echelons of intelligence in Russia is also a matter of record.

2) The view that the downing of the airliner was an intentional attack comes from a Russian talk show where apparently a Russian reserve colonel was interviewed. We're told nothing specific here, neither the name of the talk show, the colonel, nor his service branch.

3) French sources apparently confirm that is was a deliberate attack, using some sort of radio-electronic means, and allegedly conducted by French ships.

So let's pause and take stock here. If all these things are true, then one could be looking at a "demonstration of capability" attack, similar to the Russian jamming attack on the USS Donald Cook a few years ago, during which an aging Russian Sukhoi 24 fighter bomber approached the US navy frigate, and apparently jammed all of its electronics, and knocking out its computer system. The Sukhoi then made no less than a dozen mock attack runs on the disabled vessel. Additionally, during the Russian intervention in Syria, it was reported that all NATO equipment in the country experienced a similar electronic jamming attack. If all this is true, then we may be looking at yet another manifestation of what I've been calling the new international covert "Mafia War".

There's something else to ponder here:

"Pravda used several experts that noted the fact all engines stopped simultaneously, the flaps were locked and what the public was told the plane turned 180 degrees was not true. Other experts interviewed by Pravda cited the crew did not contact the air-traffic controllers, nor did anyone try to use a cell phone but had time to put on life jackets. All the evidence seem to point to a Radio Electronic Attack."

In other words, Pravda is stating that the attack came in the form of a remote shutdown of the aircraft's engines and a locking of its flaps. This caught my attention for a very obvious reason, for during the initial spate of speculations of what had caused the downing of Malaysia Air Flight 370 a little over two years ago, there were the usual hypotheses that on board equipment of the aircraft contained a "back door" that allowed someone to take control of the aircraft through that back door, and effectively highjack, and subsequently crash it. These types of speculations began after 9/11, as numerous researchers published articles and books about the hypothesis, going so far as to document and cite various patents for precisely such equipment and possibilities. Even the German national airline, Lufthansa, was reported to have made modifications to its fleet of aircraft to remove these back doors. In any case, these types of technologies make almost anything possible, and I for one have no doubt they exist, because they've existed since World War Two. Both the Allies and the Germans developed large aircraft that were packed, tail to cockpit, with high explosives, which were then piloted remotely. In effect, these aircraft were flying bombs of enormous power. In the Allies' instance, they were conceived as "bunker busting" controlled bombs to fly into the large German fortified gun emplacements on the French Coast. Indeed, the eldest Kennedy son, Joseph Kennedy Jr., died on a mission flying one such "flying bomb."

In any case, the existence of such capabilities might be seen(and in fact was seen by some commentators on the Malaysia Air 370 mystery) as a possible explanation for the flight's erratic flight path, first apparently zigzagging back across the Malaysian peninsula, then apparently flying south to crash somewhere in the Indian Ocean west of Australia. So, at least, would the official narrative have it. Now, of course, I put forward the idea, within about a week after the disappearance of MH 370, that the flight had simply gone "poof", and that it was the victim of some sort of very exotic energy weaponry attack, of a wholly different nature than simply a remote commandeering of the airliner via "backdoors" in its computer flight system and so on. Today my commitment to that wild and woolly hypothesis is less strong than it was then, but I don't completely discount it.

And that brings us to the crash of the Russian airliner. Backdoors are one thing in Boeing aircraft, but quite another in a Tupelov 154, which is built entirely in Russia, and therefore highly unlikely to have these secret "backdoors" in its on board computer equipment. Of course, the Russians could put in their own backdoors and access them, in which case this would be a typical "false flag" incident. Possible? Well, if it's possible for western manufacturers, then it's possible for the Russians. The question is, would the Russians kill so many of their own just to create a false flag? I suspect probably not. And there's something else arguing against this scenario. In the case of most false flag incidents of that sort, the spin takes over immediately, and begins to push for a "response". There has been no such response coming from Russia thus far, arguing against the backdoor-false flag scenario.

This implies, in turn, that the aircraft's electronics systems - if the Pravda article be true - were accessed entirely remotely by exotic radio EM broadcast equipment. This in turn also implies something else, namely, the ability to remotely scan a complex electrical system, and to access it precisely through purely remote means, and commandeer the equipment.  While that may sound far-fetched, I would have the reader recall Robert Hasting's essential study, UFOs and Nukes, in which he recounts the episode of a UFO hovering near an American ICBM base, shutting down an entire flight of ICBMs, and reprogramming their targeting information, entirely remotely. As I noted in my book Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations, the USAF, according to Hastings, brought in the Boeing company, which was able to replicate these effects. In any case, what this implies is, again, the ability to "scan" a complex electrical system remotely, and then to access it remotely; no "backdoors" needed.

Now if all this very high octane speculation be true, then it casts not only a new possibility on the MH 370 mystery, but also perhaps places it in the context of the "new international Mafia war" that I believe we're beginning to see signs of emerging. And if all this be the case, then we're also watching the display of exotic technologies, both by Russia and the West, in a new kind of sabre rattling, or perhaps better put, "radio rattling." And all that raises the question, just how useful are ICBMs anyway?

See you on the flip side..."

Airplane Accident happened on Mukilteo in May 2 2017

 

This is up by Seattle   now for the kicker

Video: Pilot, passenger walked away from dramatic Mukilteo plane crash

May 2, 2017   Evan Bush

"The fiery crash of the single-engine plane was captured on a dashcam video. The pilot, 30, and a passenger did not report injuries, but two people on the ground had minor injuries, police say.

An Oregon pilot and a passenger walked away from the fiery crash of a small plane on a Mukilteo street Tuesday despite hitting several cars, police said.

Two people on the ground reported minor injuries, according to police.

 

The pilot reported he had lost power just before the crash, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said Wednesday.

The crash was captured on a driver’s dashcam video, which showed the plane clipping a power line and sending sparks into the air before hitting the ground in a fireball.

The single-engine plane had just taken off from nearby Paine Field airport when it crashed at about 3:30 p.m. at Harbour Pointe Boulevard Southwest and Mukilteo Speedway, according to Mukilteo police.

Police say several cars were damaged in the crash and the subsequent fire.

After striking the power line, the plane hit a traffic signal, rupturing a fuel cell and sparking a car fire, police said. After hitting the street the plane skidded to a stop at Harbour Pointe Boulevard Southwest east of Cyrus Way."

Oh wow, I didn't realise the news didn't get noticed by English based countries........

Burma--->Gold connection makes me to wonder if that was also the Cabal planned crash......at first, the news stated 108 dead in Japan, the number also made me to consider the sacrificial intention. 

But reading into it too deep, too wide, possibly. But the Cabal knows Burma got Gold.

I got confused over the name before, too, kandy! I learned the name got changed to Burma in Japan to align with English based countries, instead of Myanmar, so I was told...but still lots people there use Myanmar. Just it's more familiar to us to call them Myanmar than Burma for our generation. Dunno about young kids, though.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Names_of_Myanmar

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/7013943.stm <---an old article but was interesting to read.

"Mark Farmener, of Burma Campaign UK, says: "Often you can tell where someone's sympathies lie if they use Burma or Myanmar. Myanmar is a kind of indicator of countries that are soft on the regime.

"But really it's not important. Who cares what people call the country? It's the human rights abuses that matter.

"There's not a really strong call from the democracy movement saying you should not call it Myanmar, they just challenge the legitimacy of the regime. It's probable it will carry on being called Myanmar after the regime is gone.""

Are you noticing the change from "Burma" back to "Myanmar" in MSM these days?? Curious......

See, I thought we used to call it Burma - the Burmese. And then it switched to Myanmar, but of course I knew nothing of the political and regime reasons. But maybe it was Myanmar before it was Burma and then back again?

From what I can tell from the articles I posted, the UK uses Burma and the US uses Myanmar.

Thunderbird F-16 crashes, flips at Dayton Air Show practice

 
US Air Force Thunderbird F-16 has crashed and flipped over while practicing for an air show in Dayton, Ohio. Two people are trapped inside the jet, but are reportedly not injured. The Thunderbirds are the Air Force demonstration team.

The pilot will go with CareFlight crew to the hospital, WHIO reported, citing emergency scanner traffic. 

There was a “mishap” while a plane was on the ground, according to Staff Sergeant Tabatha McCarthy with the Thunderbirds public relations office

Wright-Patterson Air Force Base dispatched a crash team and heavy rescue crew to the scene, said Penelope Reed of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office in Dayton. There were no immediate report of any fuel leaks from the plane.

The ejection seat is still armed, according to scanner traffic.

“The aircraft is as safe as we can make it,” said fire crews on emergency scanners.

A medical helicopter was unable to respond to the scene due to heavy rainfall, WHIO reported. The rain is coming down at a rate of more than two inches (5 cm) per hour.

Was it the earthquake thread where we were talking about AI and glitches? Also, lots of stuff with our military equipment. And this is coming after an Air Force problem with their F-35Bs.


More glitches ground Marine Corps' F-35 jets

June 22, 2017
 
The Marine Corps on Thursday grounded its F-35B Joint Strike Fighters in Arizona after discovering glitches in the jets’ computerized logistics system.

The decision to temporarily suspend operations of Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 211 at the Corps’ air station in Yuma stemmed from problems with the Autonomic Logistics Information System, or ALIS, the technological backbone of the F-35B program.

ALIS transmits details about a jet’s mechanical condition to the ground-based computer system, automatically scheduling maintenance for the aircraft and contacting vendors worldwide to stock needed parts.

Maj. Gen. Mark Wise, commander of the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing based at Miramar Marine Corps Air Station, made the call to suspend flights for Squadron 211 due to “some anomalies” with the latest ALIS 2.0.2 software upgrade, according to a statement given to The San Diego Union-Tribune.

“There is nothing wrong with the performance or safety of the aircraft itself, but it is imperative that we ensure the ground-based ALIS system is working properly before operations continue,” the statement said.

Engineers from defense contractor Lockheed Martin and the Pentagon’s F-35 Joint Program Office have been asked to fix ALIS. The computer bugs do not affect other F-35 units, according to the Corps.

The Marines’ call to ground the F-35B came a day after the Air Force cleared its version of the fighter to fly again.

Flights had been grounded at Luke Air Force Base in Arizona after pilots developed symptoms of hypoxia — acute oxygen deprivation.

A China Southern Airlines flight was recently held up for hours after an elderly Chinese tourist allegedly threw coins into one of the plane’s engines for “good luck”.

According to South China Morning Post, Flight 380 from Shanghai to Guangzhou was about to take off when some passengers reported seeing an elderly tourist chucking coins at an engine while standing in the middle of the boarding staircase.

Officials at Shanghai Pudong International Airport immediately grounded the plane and launched an investigation into the disruption.

The woman appeared to be about 80 years old and had limited mobility, according to airport staff. She was traveling with her husband, daughter and son-in-law.

A maintenance crew found a total of nine coins in and around one engine after carrying out a thorough inspection of the aircraft. Eventually the flight was allowed to take off at 5:52pm – five hours later than scheduled – and landed in Guangzhou at 8:14pm local time.
