Mr. J.K., a regular reader and member of this website, found the following article, and it's important enough to share, because it contains some high octane speculation of its own, which fuels ours of the day:

Martin Armstrong Asks: "Is There Something Behind The Power Outage In Washington DC?"

Now, as the reader will see, the Washington DC area is not the only area that has experienced these weird power outages. Turkey, Italy, and the Netherlands have both suffered them. In all cases, the official explanations, when they're forthcoming at all, seem less than convincing. Consider the explanation for the Washington DC outage, which left Mr. Obama and his administration reliant upon emergency power:

"The April 7th, 2015 power outage in Washington DC is curious to say the least. Virtually instantaneously, the government declare it was not a terrorist attack. After all, how could that possibly be when the NSA guards the country. If there was an attack on the power-grid, then the NSA would have to answer for their failure. So clearly, if it was an attack, they would never admit it.

"Instead, this has been attributed to a piece of metal breaking loose from a power line 43 miles southeast of the District of Columbia, which knocked out electricity to the White House, State Department and wide area including parts of Maryland. Can a simple piece of metal break and shut down that much power of a strategic area as DC? That seems to be an excuse like some drunk driver knocked over a power pole." (Emphasis in the original)

The outage in my opinion must be seen as part of a larger pattern of what appears to be deliberate attacks, a pattern which has included the mysterious taking down of air traffic control in Salt Lake City,  affecting the entire SW United  States, the attack on internet connections between Flagstaff and Phoenix Arizona, and the strange and quite professional attack on an electrical substation in the Silicon Valley region of California. (See INTERNET SERVICE CUT BETWEEN PHOENIX AND FLAGSTAFF: WHY?)

The question is, what party, or parties, could be doing such things, and why? Zero Hedge speculates on one possibility:

"The technology age is highly vulnerable and the movement to electronic money is interesting for if the power-grid goes down for any prolonged period, what new risk factors will the economy absorb?  During war, it is common for the other side to counterfeit their opponent’s currency. The way to accomplish this today is to take out the power-grid." (Emphasis in the original)

In other words, as far as Zero Hedge is concerned, the pattern is part of the wider "currency siege" taking place between the Anglo-American oligarchy and the rest of the world, led by the Russo-Chinese BRICSA bloc. There is a significant fact which seems to corroborate this, and that is that most of the power outages and other strange activity appears to be concentrated exclusively on western targets. We hear nothing (nor are we likely to) of similar outages in, say, the Kremlin or Beijing's Forbidden CIty. It is, Zero Hedge is suggesting, a new kind of currency war, one designed to show the lack of security in western power systems, and hence, the vulnerability of its financial clearing and system. Significantly, the article shows one of the Nazi counterfeit twenty pound sterling banknotes from its Operation Bernhard counterfeiting scheme, a scheme which cost the British government over a hundred million pounds... in 1930s-1940s pounds at that. The article suggests that this was a cyber warfare attack.
Possibly so. The pattern when viewed against the wider backdrop of internet cable attacks, professional hits on a California electrical substation, failing air traffic control systems, is at the very least suspicious.
But there is possibly an even wider context in which to view these events, and herewith comes our high octane speculation of the day. That wider context is the steady drip of space-related news, from new propulsion technologies to stories of widening international cooperation. Some of these stories, as I have suggested this previous week, have the air of "urgency" about them, as if the space-powers - India, China, Japan, Germany, France, Italy, the U.K., Russia, the USA - were in some sort of hurry to "get out there."  We've all heard the wild scenarios, from returning Nibiru/Planet X to Alternative Three-like scenarios, none of which I find very compelling. In a previous blog this week I suggested - following the idea of Catherine Austin Fitts - that the race to put into place an alternative international financial and clearing system - may be as much about creating systems redundancy as it may be about any geopolitical-financial reason alone. But strange power outages could be as much about someone else besides one of the BRICSA bloc nations causing them. Perhaps, for once, Washington is telling the truth (though I'm not holding my breath). Perhaps it really wasn't about terrorism, or any terrestrial cyber war attack.
Of course, that's pure high octane speculation, but there is a way to verify it: if one starts to see similar stories coming from Russia, China, Brazil, India... then perhaps someone else is responsible. The story is one to watch, for like the bearer bonds scandals, it is a huge story, that seems to have fallen right off the radar screen, all too quickly. In any case, no crisis operates in a vacuum, and there's always someone around wanting and willing to exploit it, and attacks on the power grid, regardless of who is behind them, always be exploited for further erosion of basic human rights and liberties.
See you on the flip side.

    Who better to carry out these acts of sabatoge on the power grid than the mafia. As we saw in the charter flights that carried out arab shieks and bin ladens family members from american soil on sept 15 2001 without official customs clearance and before any FBI investigation found out about their presence in the U.S. at the time of the 9-11 attacks. Yes a charter plane company owned and operated by the Raymond Jr. Patriarca crime family and their stooge Zammiello were hired by the CIA/state dept to fly the suspects out of the country directly after the 9-11 attacks,which seems to indicate organized crime as a conduit for internal black ops, a good cover for internal activities that can be easily denied by the government agencies running them if notorious mob characters are caught in the act. Whose to say the chicago cicero crime family isn’t now carrying out these acts of sabatoge(don’t forget the mafia employed many SS and gestopo personel from mussolini’s nazi’s after the war in america,I met a few myself back in the day. Betrayal is an art with these people so they fit in like a glove with paperclips CIA. Also owned by this crime family is the airport refueling operations for all passenger aircraft in the upper northeastern U.S.(new england). Like they ain’t connected directly to the government now,,,,,and they say the new england mafia is almost gone………gone black ops.

    There is also the possibility of an impending “critical event” with the Earth’s EM field. The magnetic poles are moving very rapidly toward a meeting point near Indonesia (Hmmmmm . . .) and many scientists are convinced we are well into a magnetic pole reversal.

    Such a reversal, while not civilization ending in and of itself, could radically destabilize our protective EM shield, and allow all manner of EM interference, cosmic ray bombardment, and other, unforeseen technical problems, which would seriously impact our technology and kill tens of millions (or more).

    Perhaps this is another factor in the breakaway civilization (BC) scenario – the fact that we are heading into a mini-ice age, and a magnetic pole shift at the same time. We could be extremely vulnerable to all manner of crises, natural and “being”-made (as in an attack).

    There was an important but little known mission (around the late 1940s early 1950s) which first gave us serious evidence that the North magnetic pole was moving a lot more than it was thought it should. The timing is interesting in light of the BC time line.

    Bearden has commented on Russian capabilities to use virtual template technology to disrupt and control computer systems. Perhaps they are fighting back against our invasion of the Ukraine.

    Another case where the usual suspects has an unknown criminal syndicate
    cutting into their fiefdom’s power-grid actions.
    [off-world action?]

    The public slice of the pie has been cast, for God knows how long, as a “virtual” slice;
    a slice that is snatched just-in-time, “before” becoming a “real” slice of the action.
    Yet when this happens to the plutocrims; it’s outrageously, & powerfully unfair.
    Yet John Q Public’s unfair-share, is just a grade above raw industrial strength.

    Several years ago California had rolling blackouts. Later it was found that ENRON was the mastermind behind the crisis. For the facts watch “Enron: The smartest Guys in the room”, Magnolia home entertainment, 110 minutes, 2005 (but you will see connections from that date to now!) They were also dealing with the same bankers that got government bailouts and then turned around and paid the ENRON Recovery Corp who was waiting for payment from the Dec 2001 bankruptcy of the ENRON twin towers international business. It would be worth the time of each of you to see this film.

    Then there are the Rockafailures and Rottenchilds master plans eugenics(final solution)to disposal of us useless eaters. The official governments are just the muscle for these gangsters to do their bidding. We are just beasts of burden to make super profits for our owners disposable once we our no longer useful to them. The excuse for the power outage sounds like the 1960s northeast USA-Canada I don’t remember what small piece of equipment took the blame for that failure.

    “Tyler Durden” must be reading the gizadeathstar blog… and rightly so!

    “. . . . a piece of metal breaking loose from a power line 43 miles southeast of the District of Columbia, . . . “. Hey that puts the alleged site of the power failure in the drink of the Chesapeake Bay. Was this written by The Onion?

    I find the term “terrestrial” to be very interesting. Let’s say for the sake of argument, these attacks weren’t terrestrial. Where the Klaatu contingent pulled the plug in a very discreet show of force.(?) IMO there are a myriad of different Off World civs that have been visiting here for quite some time. Some are bound by some kind of “Prime Directive”. And others that would prefer to harvest the Earth and it’s inhabitants like passenger pigeons, bison, etc.. Hence, a conflict. We can add to that an Earth based .Inc contingent that is trying to get to Mars with all their ill gotten gains. My best guess is an ET faction/s is here, in league with our beloved PTB and they now face the threat of a Klaatu civ’s or some variant’s arrival / interdiction. My logic is, there is just toooooo much unbridled in your face corruption. FedGov.Inc is literally unashamedly stealing in broad daylight. This “there is no tomorrow” felonious SOP is akin to robbing the safe on the Titanic. Where there is the threat of serious change from somewhere else.
