YOU TELL ME: U.S. SPACE COMMANDER FOUND DEAD

YOU TELL ME: U.S. SPACE COMMANDER FOUND DEAD

Every time a Clinton runs for office or is in office, the number of people showing up dead in unusual (and sometimes creative) ways (in that Vincent Price-Abominable-Dr.-Phibes-sort-of-"creative"-way) seems to notch up: think Vince Foster here, or more recently, Seth Rich, or, for that matter that weight trainer-UN ambassador who wound up dead with a barbell on his throat before he was to testify, or Ron Brown's death by airplane accident before he was to testify. In Arkansas, they have a term for these patterns of "convenient" deaths that always seem to benefit the Clintons: "arkancides". Watching it is like watching one of those Dr. Phibes movies. Except it's real.

Well, file this one in the "you tell me" category, because I have no idea whether it might qualify as yet another "arkancide" or if this is just a coincidence, as many of you found this one and passed it along:

 New commanding general of SMDC identified as Redstone Arsenal death

There's nothing in the article itself to suggest there's any cause of concern, except for one brief little note:

The Redstone Arsenal resident who was found dead Sunday on the installation has been identified as a two-star general who just moved to Huntsville to take the reins of the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command.

Maj. Gen. John Rossi, 55, was found dead Sunday at his new home on the arsenal. He was scheduled to take his new command on Tuesday, replacing Lt. Gen. David L. Mann as commanding general of USASMDC/ARSTRAT.

The cause of death for Rossi, a native of Long Island, New York, remains under investigation, according to Redstone Arsenal officials.

Now I'm about 98 % certain that this is not an "arkancide," and about 95% certain that there's nothing whatsoever here, other than an accidental, and sad death.

But as you know, it's the other 2-5% that interests me, and here the article fits a now-familiar pattern: (1) the usual bland and fact-impoverished statements are followed by (2) a reassurance the whole matter is "under investigation," and this means we can expect (3) the usual announcement about no foul play being involved after a period of time for the "investigation" to be conducted ("It was an aneurism of the [fill in the organ here]," a "sudden cardiac event" due to "unknown conditions", and so on). In other words, There's a "context" here I find disturbing, above and beyond the recent arkancides. Indeed, my intuition tells me that if there is anything here, it probably isn't related to those. There's Redstone itself, center of the US Space command, and in Huntsville, Alabama, last official US home of Wernher von Braun, and nearby Maxwell AFB, with his cornucopia of Nazi technology "Project Lusty" files. Then there's General Rossi himself, a namesake of the Roman Catholic saint, John Rossi, who, as it turns out, was the name assigned to a young orphan who emerged as a popular fictitious super-hero: the "Saint," or "Simon Templar."

But there's another context here as well, and that's a series of space-related news stories this past week (that I haven't blogged about yet), that does make the timing of General Rossi's death at least "a little unusual" to my mind. Indeed, General Rossi, like all military officers, would have regularly undergone complete physicals, and this would have been a normal factor in the determination of fitness for command, particularly for a sensitive command like this.

The jury is still out on this one, of course, but in the meantime, speculation is the order of the day, and if their was foul play involved, then the question becomes one of motivation: the "why" would lead to the "who", and as of now, it's anyone's guess, and a case of "you tell me"...

See you on the flip side...

  1. Since this appointment of Gen. Rossi was by Obama’s command, it would be more likely that an assassination would be some sort of horrendous push back against Obama and those who pull his strings.

  2. Wasn’t Bearden stationed in Huntsville or was he in Georgia? I didn’t realize space command was in Alabama either.

    1. Dr. Debus visited there on several occasions.. supposedly secretly in some cases, probably to see Werner. Bearden, not sure. db

  3. I can’t go more generous than 50-50 on this being a possible ‘Arkancide’. I’m in agreement with those regarding the physical fitness of the general. Unless there is indeed something in his medical record indicating an issue, a reported natural cause is suspicious. Being in a command slot in Space Command does not mean you have to be in astronaut condition but he would have to be in regulation shape and meeting regular exams and PT requirements and again clues would show up. For now, this looks very suspicious to me. There are ways to kill people and make it look natural.

  4. As a Major General, he did PT (Physical Training) everyday. In the USARMY your medical records are not private. His health would have been screened for potential problems before he was eligible for promotion and assignment to this critical post. He would not have been a soft target, either. CAF told me there have been inventory problems at Red Stone. To be filed under we’ll see.

  5. My thought is that this General was one of the Pentagon’s “good guys”, from the faction of the military/intelligence folks that are backing Trump per CAF. The current entrenched fascist/Nazis are trying to block all access to anyone who is trying to thwart their control. Especially in light of the fact that a former CIA/Goldman Sachs stooge is signing on to the Independent Presidential ticket today. So, if the Independent guy runs and wins, the current cabal stays at the status quo. If he draws enough votes away from Trump, this will allow HRC to win, which still leaves the current cabal in control. Game, set, match? Maybe. Maybe not!

    They are investigating who, what and where blackmail will be most profitable, both politically and economically.

  7. This bring a question how many of citizens(subjects) of the Banana Empire will bother to vote. The Clintons are just of tip of b-movie gangster epic that the CSA has been for at least more than a century just wondering what this two star general did or impediment did he pose to the Clintons and their handlers to earn a wacking.

  8. You couldn’t ask for a better indicator of how far the USSA has advanced toward third world status than the total corruption of our “government”. The simple fact that Hitlery is even allowed to run for the highest office in the land, given this “couple of corruptions” history, is so far past unbelievable it should be Twilight Zone material. The Clinton Foundation, with its ties to just about every one high up in the federal government, implies just how bad it truly is. These two have turned every office they have ever held into a personal profit enterprise.
    Murder and treason are just the tip of the iceberg; move along, nothing to see here. Surely, this has to be some kind of test to see just how dumbed down and ignorant the unwashed masses in this nation have become.

    1. In Europe the masses are also ignorant of how bad corruption runs in politics. Do a little rational thinking angst crops up so it is easyer not to deal with reality.

      1. You are absolutely correct. In general, the general public in Europe would simply rather not know. There are some who live in Italy, by way of example, who regard corruption and government as being one in the same thing. “It has been that way since the Romans,” said a Milanese friend of mine not long ago.

        My Milanese friend followed up her comment with the unsettling observation that only Garibaldi to a lesser degree and Mussolini to a greater degree were able to eliminate corruption. And only Mussolini had made sure every child in Italy had breakfast at school, and only Mussolini had made the trains run on time. I continue to mull over that conversation and wonder if it was not Mussolini and his fascism that were successful, but rather his sweeping away of all systems and bureaucracy from the previous governments and replacing them with his own systems and people that had the most salutary effect.

        Sometimes all one needs to do is to take the rubbish out and dump in the dust bin.
