MR. G.B. brought this to my attention, after reading last week's blog about the alleged radar-computer jamming incident involving a Russian Sukhoi-24 bomber and the US missile Aegis frigate the USS Donald Cook. This time, the brief story is reported on Zero Hedge:

FAA Grounds all flights out of Los Angeles International Due to Computer Glitch

The report is confirmed by local Los Angeles news:

All flights at LAX Grounded due to Computer Issues

As the Zero Hedge article indicates, the grounding effected at least three US states, and apparently certain airports across the nation. Apparently, the problem was a "computer glitch", for according to the local Los Angeles reporting of the incident, it was a regional air traffic control facility that was affected:

"All flights were temporarily grounded at Southern California airports on Wednesday afternoon due to ground stop issued by the FAA because of technical problems at a regional air traffic control facility.

"The “ground stop” was announced by LAX on Twitter at 2:13 p.m., and the airport referred questions to the Federal Aviation Administration, which issued the order.

"The FAA said it was “gradually restoring the system” at about 3:30 p.m.

"The stop was “due to computer issues,” Los Angeles International Airport stated on Twitter.

"Flights were also grounded at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, Long Beach Airport and Ontario International Airport, representatives of those airports confirmed."

When I saw this article, I, like Mr. G,B, immediately thought of the Russian reportage of the USS Donald Cook incident, where the Russian reportage stated explicitly that due to Russian jamming efforts, the computer algorithm on the USS Donald Cook "failed to load." In other words, something far beyond radar jamming in the conventional sense was occurring. Accepting the Russian reportage as being true for the sake of argument, this was a case of remote jamming of the computer systems.

In this context, there is something in the FAA grounding story, as reported by local Los Angeles television, that disturbs. Computer glitches don't just "occur" in a "regional facility" that effects most of the US southwest air traffic control. If they did, we would expect to see such incidents more often. Granted, computer glitches do occur, and they occur occur at the most inconvenient moments, as most of us reading this blog or these articles are aware.

But assume for a moment it was not merely a "glitch." Assume, rather, that it was the result of some sort of deliberate interference: hacking, or, even more significantly, remote jamming of a crucial air traffic control center, jamming of such a nature to cause the "algorithm (to fail) to load," ala the Russian reporting of the USS Donald Cook incident. It would be an unlikely demonstration for anyone to make, but nonetheless, it is condign to the capabilities demonstrated in the Donald Cook incident, provided Russian explanations are to be believed (and, quite frankly, I think they are to be believed). Such a capability would, as I stated in my blog about that subject, have sweeping systemic implications... and perhaps, though I view it as only a "remote perhaps," we are seeing another demonstration. Why only a "remote perhaps"? Well, simply because the Russians have already made their point, and made it in clear, unmistakable language that even the insane warmongering neo-cons can understand: consider those big billion dollar-plus aircraft carriers to be immensely vulnerable and essentially useless. A further demonstration against essentially civilian infrastructure is unneeded, and geopolitically risky. It is not, however, altogether out of the question.

Which raises the faint whiff of something malodorous in the FAA grounding to greater strength...

See you on the flip side...

    I agree with others that do not think the Russians did this.
    My vote is for the deep black homegrown japanese military-industrial mafia, the Yakuza (essentially). I am also specifically referencing Tom Bearden’s assertion that the Russians sold or leased their scalar interferometry longitudinal wave weapons to the Yakuza in the early 90’s.
    These fantastic weapons have a range of capabilities starting with ultra-effective & completely traceless electron jamming (yes I specifically used the word electron), can create and shoot missile-like projections from manipulation of raw pure energy in just about any given environment or conversely can create a dome-like protective shield around something (like a tank) formed of the same raw pure energy and prevent a real missile from hitting the target.
    The now ever-present but spooky silent white elephants in the room are the longitudinal interferometry wave shooters, some call them Tesla Howitzers. Once again Bearden postulated in the 90’s during tv interviews that most of the major labs of the Western & Eastern worlds had some understanding of what longitudinal waves are and what can happen when one chooses to point two of these waves towards each other until they create an interference pattern then turn up the watts and watch the show.
    For those thinking HAARP, similar arena but at least one order of magnitude higher in that the Earths ionosphere plays no critically important role in the operation of a longitudinal wave generator versus what we’re told about how HAARP bounces signals back and forth, ground to ionosphere and back.
    The point I’m really trying to make is that there are potentially dozens of countries out there today with an operational control finger on a weaponized platform. That doesn’t include the homegrown interests of countless private organizations across the globe with committed funding too. And America hath many enemies at this time whom I’m sure would love nothing more than to test new weapons on the American populace.
    The shady predatory globalist whispers in their ears; revenge, have it.
    For I am convinced that the offshore controllers of the USA as it stands today are constantly seeking out somebody who will attack the USA tomorrow, effectively on their behalf. The selling point that closes the deal every time is “be at ease, we’ll control the media reaction and our other friends will deal with all other reactions”. And that’s exactly how it goes, the mainstream investigative journalist media toes a scripted line, the American public learns nothing and then a Hollywood starlet falls in a toilet to redirect your attention elsewhere. By the time you’ve remembered, another diplomat is dead in Africa and awh shucks the baseball post season just started. Might as well turn on that new season of Survivor, yawn am I tired.
    With the capability of ordering precision stealth attacks on the scale of a 4-state airport shutdowns mini-nightmare, the faceless masters have one more tool for generating the necessary chaos that order is to come from.

      “…generating the necessary chaos that order is to come from.” Well said!

    What if the U2 plane was demonstrating for Russia what we can do?

  3. nobodyouwantoknow on May 6, 2014 at 7:02 pm

    It doesn’t matter what kind of spy plane did the flying — it’s the on-board equipment that does the trick.

    BTW : The missing Malaysian jet was captured by a huge disc craft that snagged it right out of the air.

    I seened it in a dream two days before it happened — I had just started using African Dream Root ( Silene capensis ) which enables the user to see the future, amongst other siddhi. Wonderful stuff, highly recommended for optimizing dream-time.

    See ya on the be side …

      those dreams can quickly turn into nightmares, just ask Freddy Kruger on his trips on Elm street.

      Thebes one, set phasers too stun.

    Just there way of saying…….hey guess what, we have emp weapons too.

  5. loisg on May 6, 2014 at 9:53 am

    I have a question since I’m not a computer nerd and don’t know how some of these things work: how did the Russians know, in the Donald Cook incident, that the US computer system “failed to load” ? It seems that the information about what happened on the US end of the story comes from a Russian source. But maybe I’m missing something.

    FAA Confirms Spy Plane Scrambled Air Traffic Control in California

    if this/my posting is worth anything: a woman travel agent with whom I’ve had sporadic contact here in SW Germany stated her brother worked (now retired)as an air traffic controller at the Frankfurt, Germany airport (2nd largest continental European airport; Amsterdam is the largest)and told her he had many unexplainable blips on his screen and at least briefly, sporadically witnessed a few power-outs, if only for a few seconds; and that was back in the 80’s/90’s-


  8. Robert Barricklow on May 6, 2014 at 8:26 am

    Yes! Going a little deeper behind the mainstream’s typical sheeple U-@ type stories, we find another example of the ongoing theme: Global Covert Warfare.

    Analogous/MAD’s Spy vs. Spy… vs. Spy…

    • MQ on May 6, 2014 at 1:21 pm

      Yeah, I have a hard time believing that a U2 (50+ yr old technology?!?) caused the problems for LAX et al, when ‘coincidentally’ a Russian plane was going along the west coast as well.
      I’ll remind you of a yr or two ago when a chinese sub was off the coast of SoCal, ya know, just doing tourist stuff. The same time there was an errant missile from Vanderberg AFB. Oh, if I only had this many coincidences, I’d have won the lottery twice in one week!

      • Robert Barricklow on May 6, 2014 at 4:33 pm

        And when something DOES happen; a USSA military missile bringing down Flight 800(Into The Buzzsaw by Katherine Borjesson), we get an elaborate FBI investigation explaining the technical details[with computer animation]. This is then soon followed by PBS specials, Frontline’s, air diasters and other serial killers[of truth] documentaries –
        ALL reading from the same Sheeple Scripts.
        This leads credence to Napoleon’s definition of history: an agreed upon fable.

  9. marcos toledo on May 6, 2014 at 7:35 am

    We can now look forward to 9/11 false airplane attack minus the terrorist and box cutter’s. How convenient what will meme now a hacker attack by fill in the blank scapegoats.

  10. ken on May 6, 2014 at 7:32 am

    … very interesting. some have alleged it was all due to a U2 flyby of sorts:

    • ken on May 6, 2014 at 7:34 am

      … pls forgive duplication. i see that Basta has already mentioned that possibility in another reply.

  11. QuietRiot on May 6, 2014 at 6:17 am

    Yeah. and look at the “symbol” being promoted; think Gary Francis Powers and the Cuban Missile Crisis.

  12. Lost on May 6, 2014 at 6:17 am

    If true about the LA area airports, and the connection to Russia is real, then why wouldn’t those in the US allied with the neoNazi coup in Ukraine try to inflict something similar on Russia?

    It’s not like the US doesn’t have the weapons, however I guess those systems may not be controlled by those pushing for a wide war in Ukraine.

    That BlackSea thing read like a made up “men’s” magazine story circa 1965.

    • loisg on May 6, 2014 at 9:46 am

      I think it’s very possible that the US is already doing things of this nature in Russia, we just don’t hear about it mainly because they wouldn’t want the word out and their news is so controlled that they can virtually stop all that sort of information.

  13. basta on May 6, 2014 at 5:45 am

    Ah! Delighted that you are bringing this incident up and that you’ve come to this suspicion/conclusion as well, it appears many people smell a lie here and are drawing the same conclusions.

    Even more interestingly, in an update to the article, NBC via ZH reported that “unnamed sources” said that the crash was caused by–ready for it?–a U2 overflight of the LA area.

    Of course this is pure rubbish, as U2s have been overflying the LA area (and the globe) without like incident for over a half-century, but the Cold War symbology of blaming a U2 as the scapegoat is a deeply resonant bit of disinformation… Just change black to white and add 2+2 and you have your answer.
