incomprehensible to US democrats who now know putin has lost his mind.

Save_America1st's picture

Read this stuff.

This guy has quite the compilation of information...and if true it sure as shit doesn't look good for the U.S. once again.

excerpt from part of the post:

“Greetings to those assigned Operation TOP COCK. Due to the sloppy work of Serco and Obama, we are accelerating our uptempo Operation DUM PHUC as Agent Chips succeeded in blocking the detonation of SMACsonic in the case of MH17. In a brief synopsis from a non flying object, me, I believe I quote Chips accurately in suggesting that two B777s took of from EHAM; MH17 which was empty and BIBI’S TWIN which had 56 kidnapped fresh Dutch people with blood removed in the cabin and as many as 239 MH370 corpses in the aft cargo hold. We believe that the departure routing was routine out of Amsterdam until the point where the flight, MH17, deviated to the north to enter Ukrainian airspace. Shortly after entering Ukrainian airspace the flight became invisible to ATC controllers in Europe, consistent with the tests in Austria earlier this year as well as the ATC “gone blind” when a U2 transitted LA airspace enroute to Beale AFB, home of the 9th ERS who had aircraft 80-1076 at Ramey AFB before the Haiti HAARPQUAKE in March of 2010, or was it April? During that period of just over an hour where the Freescale ‘stealth techniques’ were performed, an air launched air-to-air missile targeted MH17 causing it to lose thrust from the #2 engine according to Rolls Royce Trent pings for that particular engine. We believe that the visible intercept missile did not create enough damage to breach the integrity of the fuselage so a second attack was attempted using the KU band triggered SMACsonic. That attack was necessary to incinerate both populations of corpses; the decomposing Malaysia 370 stiffs and the 40 or so Dutch folks who have gone missing recently but was prevented just as on 9/11 the departure of UA93 was delayed 41 minutes when ‘imputed’ a delay. For doubters out there simply google [ 41 minute delay + imputed + united 93 + abel danger ] and see what we published in August, 2010. Sociable!”

Everyone in JR’s Mainstreet Junction lifted their glasses high to wet their whistle before Umbrellaman would conclude his remarks.

“Once the perpetrators were successful in hitting MH17 but unsuccessful in spolating the evidence due to Abel Danger’s blocking of the KU band detonation signal, just like the November 8, 2010, EMP that prevented the Raytheon THAAD missile’s second stage ignition, the perpetrators knew they were in deep kimchee, no disrespect to Agent Kimchee, recently of Korea. As MH17 descended with fuselage intact, terrorized Serco agents scrambled to ensure that the two populations of dead people, the fresh Dutch and the decomposing MH370 victims, hastily blew the secondary explosive channel which caused structural failure of the fuselage at 6800 feet AGL, above ground level. However, now Serco, Australia, Malaysia and China have a bigger problem than the MH370 remote snatch; this time they have two distinct populations of cadavers: the fresh Dutch 56 and the decomposing MH370 239. In fact, the perpetrators are more exposed than Obama was for the brief moment in time when sissy girl Obama thought he could use a $50M Weslaco, Texas resort to house the disease bearing children crossing into the US in droves while a single US Marine is stuck in Mexico on false charges which brings us to McMinn County, Tennessee, where trumped up charges against Walter Francis Fitzpatrick are likely to be dismissed prior to 25 July. It is now 2213 and we have only 17 minutes to bring everyone up to date on global developments in time frame 16 to 20 July, 2014. In the interest of time, let’s go once around the table starting with Agent Bean, PPUC Pastel Jade Green. Over to you, Bean.”

When I want facts and vigorous opinion, I read ZH. When I want lies, I turn to CNN.

Save_America1st's picture

whether the stuff I posted above is true or not, I'm still not believing the "official" story about all of this.  When our rogue regime of criminal traitors in government along with their lap dog, state-run, scumbag so-called "media" are all spewing the same bullshit talking points and rhetoric, that's the dead give away that they're fucking lying through their face holes.

Putin had nothing to gain by shooting down that jet.  Why would he jeopardize his growing popularity and/or the big energy deal he just made with China?

I think this was another botched false flag attempt by the west, the U.S. government and/or the "spooks" in the CIA who got the Ukraine to shoot the jet down to try and blame it on Russia/Putin.

The globalists in charge are pissed about the BRICS deal and new international settlement they are forming which excludes the U.S. dollar.  And when you try to ditch the dollar history shows that's when you get taken out or forced into war.  Just look at Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, Egypt, etc.

They're going after Putin...and it could cause a nuclear fucking war in the end.

Sometime in early July

Ukraine forces air defense ready room.

Major Z enters the room and calls the briefing to order.
The room becomes quiet instantly.
I know you two are curious as to why you've been picked to fly this mission.
The two rookies look at each other with the air of cockiness you typically see in young pilots without saying a word.
Major Z continues.
We have a rare opportunity to use a commercial air liner to hide your aircraft radar signature. We want you to fly your jets as close to the airliner as posable to stay in the air crafts radar shadow.
We have the air traffic controllers trying to get you in as close to your target as possible.
The lead pilot looks at his wing man and then raises his hand.
Major Z stops talking with an annoyed look.
The pilot asks,
What happens if enemy forces shoot down the plane?
Major Z quickly replies as if he already knew what they would ask.
No one In there right mind would shoot down a commercial airliner while the world is watching, besides
It's a Malaysian flight that you'll be following so we won't piss off the big boys.
We even have this fall guy, a Spanish fellow named Carlos recently hired at the tower.

Too bad the enemy forces are not in there right mind.
As we now know.

The media "coverage" and the war-mongering federal CONgresspeople et al are eerily reminiscent of the runup to the Iraq invasion in 2003.  "Government Officlas" say this and that; the UN is involved.  Soon we will be talking about "coalition partners".

Luckhasit's picture

That's the problem.  Anything released state side from the news outlets about that crash is washed, checked, then sterilized.  Then it says something without saything anything. 

Then it comes down to who do you believe. I'd rather take a hard look at the evidence at hand.

Cathartes Aura's picture

lol "vigorous opinion". . .

it is good to take the pulse of a varied group of thinkers, vs. tune in to uni-form'd groupthink.

thanks for the Abel Danger link above, I like a bit of variety in my memes, spices up the reality soup.

buckle up.


edit:  Save_ "I'm still not believing the "official" story about all of this"

don't "believe" any one narrative, but take in as many contrary stories as you can, hold them loose, and see what plays out. . . it's the closest you can get to any real "truth" given none of us are witnessing directly and are merely FED conflicting narratives. . .

no "belief" required, merely paying attention suffices.

Save_America1st's picture

Yup...I read everything and decide for myself.  But as I said before...when it comes out of the face holes of our treasonous government and media, you're damn right I never believe it. 

My concern is that they're so out of control and clumsy about the shit they're pulling that eventually the entire world is going to gang up on what and who is left of America and they're going to blame all of us for all the chaos and wars and poverty and everything else bad in the world and they're going to nuke the shit out of us.

Now all this bad shit is definitely the fault of government...not just our criminal American government, but governments all over the world.  We The People aren't necessarily to blame other than the vast apathy and ignorance of the sheeple, of course. 

But many of us are and have been awake for a very long time, and the people aren't to blame for the Fed money printing and all the war mongering this government and the MIC are causing all over the world.

In the end though, America, being the last bastion of freedom and liberty is going to be so demonized and battered either by war or economically that we'll finally roll over and end up no different than Communist Russia once was or Communist China.

Millions of us will be wiped out, put to death, etc.  If we can't reverse this course of "fundamental transformation" (obama 2008), then we're going to be wiped out.  What or who is left and the rest of the world will fall to the NWO and their plans for one world governance and the ultimate wipe out of 90% of the rest of the world population.

Cathartes Aura's picture

"governments" global are to be held responsible for the wars they create/allow for profiteering, it's baked into human history.

eventually the entire world is going to gang up on what and who is left of America and they're going to blame all of us for all the chaos and wars and poverty and everything else bad in the world

of course.  in the same way that amrka has been "othering" people's around the world for the whole of your lifetime, keeping the military industries busy and profitable while amrkns mowed their lawns and bought toys and watched TeeVee.

everybody gets a turn.  amrkns had it exception-all for a long time, while others suffered greatly.

@Save America First - - -I read your post above and my first reaction was "whacky stuff someone is making up" - - - but then I started reading the bio of one of the website's writers. Think I'll look into this more thoroughly before dismissiing it too quickly.

Save_America1st's picture

Thanks HardAssets.  Hey, I had never heard of Field McConnell either until yesterday.  I was listening to Alex Jones Infowars show and a caller at some point within the first hour of the show called up and said that everyone needed to know about and Field McConnell.  Alex immediately jumped in and said he knew who he was and had actually had him on the show about 5 years prior.  So when I had a chace today I looked up the website and started reading through everything.  He is definitely legit. 

Regarding his Bio that you read, here for everyone else is the C&P of his bio from the website:

  • Retired from Air National Guard on 22 June, 1993 with final F16 flight on Pearl Harbor Day, 1992. Refused to serve under William Jefferson Clinton per information given by General Hunter H. Harris IV USAF who had secured my appointment to Annapolis.

On December 10, 2006, Field McConnell reported the illegal modification on Boeing aircraft to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Northwest Airlines, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), NORAD and the USNA Superintendent. Shortly thereafter, Northwest Airlines, compelled by the United States Department of Justice (USDoJ), silenced Field McConnell, due to his inadvertent reopening of a safety issue closed in the June, 2006 settlement of a $615 million settlement paid by Boeing to the United States Department of Justice (USDOJ).

Field McConnell filed Civil Case 3:07-cv-24 at the District Court, District of North Dakota on the 27th of February, 2007. The case is titled 'FIELD MCCONNELL v. ALPA and BOEING'. Boeing admitted on March 3, 2007 the existence of the Boeing Uninterruptible Autopilot. To date, 9 February, 2012, Airline Pilots Association (ALPA) has suppressed this information.

Field McConnell retired March 13, 2007 to preserve his EXPERT WITNESS VALUE in US District Courts. Civil Case 3:07-cv-49 HAWKS CAFE v. GLOBAL GUARDIANS was filed on May Day, May 1, 2007 in District Court, District of North Dakota.

Field McConnell was recruited by Air Astana to fly Airbus A320 as Captain at Almaty and Astana, Kazakhstan serving there from February 6, 2008 until August 6, 2009. Captain Field McConnell flew with Muslim copilots around tall buildings. On December 13, 2008, an aircraft Captain Field McConnell was the captain of was electronically 'tampered with' having no effect on Field McConnell's performance as a highly experienced pilot.

While serving as Airbus Captain in Kazakhstan, Field McConnell filed Civil Case 1:08-1600 (RMC) (Pro Se) September, 2008, MCCONNELL v. ALPA. Civil Case 1:08-1600 (RMC) (Pro Se) was dismissed by Judge Rosemary M. Collyer in January, 2011

During pendency of my warning to the FAA, ALPA, FBI, DoD and NoRAD, the following flights have been lost consistent with Field McConnell's warnings:

  • Adam Air 574 - 1 January, 2007 Indonesia
  • Kenya Airways 507 - 5 May, 2007 Kenya
  • Colgan Air 3407 - 12 February, 2009 Buffalo, New York
  • Air France 447 - 1 June, 2009 enroute from Rio to Paris

Four other flights were "electronically tampered" with including the following flights:

  • British Airways 38 London Heathrow
  • Turkish Airlines 1951 Amsterdam Holland
  • Northwest 188 Minneapolis
  • Northwest 253 Detroit

And thanks also for not "shooting the messenger".  I'm not trying to post any tin-foil hat conspiracy shit.  What I found above on abeldanger seems to fall within the realm of plausibility, especially when considering the very bad track record of the obama regime and their lying and false flags.  Remember Benghazi, right?

And hey, let's also recall this story from yesterday on ZH in case anyone missed it:

What's with Malaysian Airlines flying over war zones?  It definitely seems like they're being used as targets or playing along with whoever is getting them to do this in order to cause a shoot-down to blame someone like Assad or Putin.

The official story is defintely a lie.  To what extent and how far the rabbit hole goes...we'll probably never really know.  But it still lacks any credibility, as usual, when this treasonous government is involved.



Here's the video of MH-17 being shot down....wing on fire in a total vertical power dive to the bottom.

Day_Of_The_Tentacle's picture

The millineum link shows a still picture of a video on live leak that was recorded as "Occured" on the 16th July 2014. If this information is correct, it cannot be the MH17. This is supported by the clear blue sky which is not consistent with the overcast clouded skies of the 17th July 2014.

This video keeps circulating as MH17 (and I am certainly trying to poke specifically at you Save_America) - but one has to wonder why it is pushed so hard "as evidence".

Lets try and keep the attempted fact-finding efforts up to par with a reasonable level of critical evaluation of "alleged facts" to reduce obvious noise - I am sure we all spend time on this - not to get cheap entertainment - but out of profound empathy with the victims to try and point out inconsistencies in the official narratives, so all those people, who were murdered in this event, will not have died in vane.

Save_America1st's picture

that is a good point, Day_Of_The_Tentacle.  The video is of clear blue sky completely.  But yeah, thinking back to the video on the ground of the burning/smoking wreckage it was definitely overcast, very gray out and completely cloudy.

The video does look like a actual real jet burning and crashing vertically...but could not be the same plane given the clear blue sky. 

Nice catch!

What about crashes for economic gain?

The camera operator in this clip is a technical moron:  Why keep messing with Focus, when the object (plane) is at 'Infinity' focus?  Leave the damn Focus alone, and keep tracking the plane!

PT's picture

My camera goes in and out of focus like that. Very annoying. Is there some button I don't know about?  (I usually keep it on the 'auto' setting.  I don't fiddle with it much.  Perhaps I should drag out the instructions again.)

Kirk2NCC1701's picture

Official German government sources reveal [1] that there were radar/transponder issues over various EU countries.

There is further evidence (per the Times of India article [2]) that flight MH17 was diverted by Kiev controllers into a "direct routing" path that avoids the zig-zags and takes it over a risky region.  When MH17 failed to respond to controllers, the nearby AI flight (25 km or 90 seconds away) was asked to speak to (or listen in on) the the MH17 pilots.

There is also further evidence  (per Russian Defence Ministry information) that Ukrainian Air Force fighter jets went to check it out.  It is logical and reasonable to think that they then "shadowed" the MH17 flight for a while.  Whether they shot it down, after being unable to contact the pilots, or whether SAMs were used, is TBD.

Any way you slice it, it's a messy affair, and our "leaders" are not providing responsible or measured leadership with their zealous beating of war drums. 

It does indeed look, feel and smell just like another "FDR setup"  or "911 setup" [3] to force the opposition into a Sucker Punch, to artificially create the public (US, EU) outrage and justification for a major conflict/war.  A conflict/war, that would save the USD from its demise as the GRC.

While the public's attention is momentarily distracted by these tragic events, ISIS is still on a roll, as are the IDF in Gaza.  Where's the US/NATO "outrage" there?

More likely that the Ukes shot it down (per CIA orders) and then tried to blame it on the Russians.  See above my post above.

No shit, Sherlock.  Read Escobar's op-ed linked above

What if the Ukes (gov't or rebels) shot it down after being tricked into thinking it was an enemy?  That would seem more likely - fewer people who know the truth the easier to cover it up.

Russia is moving several units of Su-24 and MiG-31 to the southern regions today, from what I've read they come from central Russian districts. (Which is great news IMO)

BandGap's picture

Why is this great news? Just curious. Are these better pilots? better planes?

Kamath's picture

Why is this great news? Well, because someone has to stop the absolute *massacre* of civilians in Donetsk and Lugansk, and it is increasingly clear that the disgusting, evil and corrupt Western politicians are not going to tell Poroshenko to stop under any circumstance what-so-ever. The ratpuke is now shelling the 40km cease-fire zone around the wreckage. It's time for this ukrainian Nazi shit-show to end. Under the cover of the MH 17 which the ukrainians shot down, the ukrainians have resorted to using incredible amounts of rocket artillery (including Uragan and Smerch) against purely civilian targets. Words cannot accurately describe my hatred for the Poroshenko regime, as well as the idiots who support him and run cover for him, and claim that the rebels are horrible, when in reality, they are simply ethnic Russians who live in the easternmost provinces of Ukraine - provinces which belonged to Russia until Lenin gave them to Ukraine as part of administrative re-arranging.

As for the Su-24 and MiG-31 regiments, they seem to be modernized versions, quite combat capable.

So.... you are making vehement judgements despite an utter lack of evidence.  Are you related to Obama and the presstitutes because we have been highly critical of them for doing just that.

Presumably the pre-911 plans for an Iran-Afghanistan-China pipeline are still "on hold", and if not, they won't enjoy US drone protection.

  • Corzine is still free
  • Jamie Dimon has eaten the blood of several children but still has cancer, reportedly.  Further "treatment" is planned.
  • Obama has completed his investigation of the airliner downing and has concluded it was Putin's fault.  All other investigation is ordered ceased.

Today, that is 'americans' vs 'americans'. The 'american' middle class has grown too fat and some of it must be trimmed in order for the rest to survive.

This is an 'american' world and knowing who did it is baseless. What matters most for 'americans', paint their wished suspect as the guilty part.

The rest does not matter.

When the dust settles, 'americans' will come out of the woods to tell who did it.

'Americans' use the exterior to stage their inner conflicts and this follows the 'american' way: it is team Obama vs team Putin, both supported by one part of the 'american' middle class.
