    Speculation of Behind the Scenes

    Just maybe Farrells high octane speculations are getting me paranoia felt, as of late little things like this > http://www.msn.com/en-nz/news/world/...id=HPCOMMDHP15 < get me thinking straight away, whats really going on or is this just coincidence, lol

    A passenger jet crashed into an island in Puget Sound on Friday night, not long after a suspect conducted an "unauthorized take-off" from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Washington state, officials said.

    Airport officials confirmed via social media that no passengers were aboard the plane. They also said that operations at the airport had resumed after being temporarily halted.

    The unauthorized pilot was described by the Pierce County Sheriff's Department as a "suicidal male." Some unconfirmed reports on social media said he was believed to be an airline mechanic.

    “Male is confirmed a suicidal male. Acted alone he is 29 year old Pierce county residence . We are working back ground on him now,” the sheriff’s department tweeted shortly before 10 p.m. Pacific time.

    Around 9:15 p.m. PDT, Alaska Airlines tweeted: "We are aware of an incident involving an unauthorized take-off of a Horizon Air Q400. We believe there are no passengers on board. More information as we learn more."

    Early reports indicated the suspect was speaking to air traffic controllers.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a message soon after the take-off:

    "We can't confirm anything at this time. We're trying to get accurate information about what is actually going on. Without confirming anything, a stolen aircraft would be a security issue.

    "The FAA is not a security agency, although we work closely with other government agencies on security issues."

    Authorities were reportedly trying to intercept the plane with an F-15 aircraft.

    Tower audio identified the suspect as "Rich."

    Air travelers and residents able to see the plane in flight were quick to post messages on social media.

    “Apparently someone stole a plane from SeaTac?” wrote one Twitter user. “Saw two fighter jets fly overhead then smoke.”

    “Some dude stole a plane from #Seatac (Allegedly), did a loop-the-loop, ALMOST crashed into #ChambersBay, then crossed in front of our party, chased by fighter jets and subsequently crashed. Weird times,” wrote another user.

    This is a developing news story. Check back f

    I haven't listened to the latest News and Views you posted so I don't know what his latest high-octane speculation is about or it's connection to the above event. My son went to college in Tacoma and I've visited the Puget Sound. It has the highest volume of water. The Chesapeake Bay, which I live near, has the largest surface area.

    In America, it remains the young, single, white male who is the likeliest candidate for domestic incidents which are often called terrorism.

    America for Sale

    This is from a piece by Ryan Cooper


    Let's review some news from the first half of the week.

    Monday: The trial of President Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort revealed jaw-dropping crimes, and continues to do so. His key lieutenant in his former lobbying business, Rick Gates, testified that they committed multiple instances of bank and tax fraud together.

    Also on Monday, The Associated Press reported that as part of a quasi-genocidal, U.S.-supported war in Yemen, Saudi Arabia is providing quiet assistance to al Qaeda, including funding, arming, and straight-up recruiting jihadis into their coalition. What's more, America was in on it: "Key participants in the pacts said the U.S. was aware of the arrangements and held off on any drone strikes."

    Tuesday: Former business partners of Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross (who has been overtly profiting from his office) filed suit alleging he stole $123 million from the business he used to run. Later, ProPublica published an astounding report detailing how the Department of Veterans Affairs is being run by a cabal of Mar-a-Lago members, bizarrely including Marvel Entertainment CEO Ike Perlmutter, none of whom are public officials of any kind or even veterans.

    Wednesday: Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.) was arrested by the FBI for insider trading — which was allegedly so blatant reporters overheard him boasting about it in the Capitol itself. Meanwhile it turns out New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is turning his regulatory powers seemingly only on local news outlets that ask him tough questions.

    This is modern American politics, folks: rotten to its very marrow. Corruption is eating the United States alive. As the Numidian King Jugurtha supposedly said of the Roman Republic: "Yonder lies a city put up for sale, and its days are numbered if it finds a buyer."



    The foreign policy "Blob"

    The Saudi example...is actually quite instructive in how money fuels the Blob. As John R. MacArthur wrote back in 2007, America had long tolerated the brutal and repressive Saudi monarchy — and sold it enormous quantities of weapons — in return for its toleration of American military hegemony and, more importantly, its oil sales.

    Yet from about the 1980s onward, the Saudi alliance has made less and less sense... With the rise of fracking technology starting around 2010, Saudi oil imports have become less and less necessary to maintain current supplies in any case. And now the Saudis are supporting literally al Qaeda. What gives?

    The truth is that today, American foreign policy is to a great degree dictated by who can offer the largest bribes.


    You can go on to read about how, "The awesome rottenness of the American elite was well demonstrated by their response to this transparent fraud."

    The piece goes on to examine both major political parties.

    Here is some audio and script of communications with the pilot.
