AND IN RUSSIA, POWER STATIONS WERE BLOWING UP AND BANKS EXPERIENCED ...
Yesterday I blogged about the strange visit of US Secretary of State John "Ketchup" Kerry to the continent of Antarctica while on a global-trotting diplomatic tour, and right in the middle of what may have been the most important election in US history. All this context, I argued yesterday, may point to a hidden "diplomatic purpose" to his visit there, rather than the "climate change" non-explanation hinted at in the official US State Department announcement. After all, Secretary Kerry can stay in Washington at foggy bottom and read the Antarctic climate change data. He doesn't need to fly there, especially in the middle of an otherwise exclusively diplomatic tour.
But there were other very strange stories going on during the election run-up as well. On the day of the election itself, if the following story shared by Mr. S.D. is to be believed, apparently a power station near the northern Arctic city of Murmansk, and a key area of Russian naval deployments (the large Arctic submarine and naval base of Polyarny is nearby), exploded, a man in the Russian consulate was found dead, and helicopters were landing in a Moscow suburb with a heavy police deployment there:
Massive energy blackout in Murmansk, Russia after reported blast at power station (VIDEOS)
One website, The Daily Coin, notes in its article ("What the Hell Just Happened in Russia: Powerstation Explosion in Naval Base Region - Helicopters landing on Moscow Streets - Dead Man Found at Russian Consulate in New York"), that the occurrence of this during the American election, taking place on the same day, might have been triggered by a virus like Stuxnet, and implies and speculates that with the accusations prior to the election that the Russians might try to "hack" them, that perhaps all this was a little "too coincidental" and might have been a ploy of some sort to initiate a crisis and influence the American elections. If so, it apparently backfired, as to my knowledge, no major coverage was given to the story, and the Russians were not responding with threats and recriminations, though, as the RT article points out, a special commission has been appointed to study the event. That implies, of course, that they might have their suspicions. After all, it's not every day that Russian power plants explode, particularly in militarily sensitive regions to that country, and particularly on the very day of an historically important American election.
But wait, there's more. Two days later, according to this article shared by Mr. V.T., the Russian cyber-security firm Kaspersky, stated that five Russian banks had apparently been the targets of some sort of cyber-attack, as reported by Yahoo; here's their story:
Massive cyberattack hit five top Russian banks: Kaspersky
Now, you'll have noticed something about those attacks, but in case you didn't, here's the relevant passage:
Moscow (AFP) - A massive cyberattack has hit at least five of Russia's largest banks, Moscow-based internet security giant Kaspersky said Thursday.
The country's largest lender, state-controlled Sberbank, said it had been hacked into on Tuesday but managed to neutralise the attack automatically without disturbing its operations.
Kaspersky said in a statement that the distribution of denial attacks (DDoS) began Tuesday at 1300 GMT and targeted "the websites of at least five well-known financial institutions in the top 10" in Russia.
The attacks were still continuing on Thursday. Most lasted around one hour but the longest lasted almost 12 hours, Kaspersky said.
DDoS attacks involve flooding websites with more traffic than they can handle, making them difficult to access or taking them offline entirely.
These attacks saw as many as 660,000 requests being sent per second using a network of more than 24,000 hijacked devices located in 30 countries. More than half the devices were in the United States, India, Taiwan and Israel, Kaspersky said. (Emphasis added)
Note that these attacks (1) began at 1300 hours Greenwich meantime, that is to say, at 1PM London-time, which would have made it 8AM, US eastern time, in other words, as polls had just begun to open in the Eastern and Central time zones of the USA, and that (2) these attacks came from addresses in the USA, India, Taiwan (a close ally of the USA, and the seat of, well, let's just say, certain NGO [non-governmental organizations] like the former World Anti-Communist League, with its close ties to the American intelligence apparatus, and, incidentally, to post-war Nazis), and Israel. (Another note on the Taiwan: recall that during the Watergate crisis, it was discovered that CREEP, The Committee to Re-Elect the President, was still receiving money and contributions, much of it being laundered through Taiwan, long after Mr. Nixon's landside victory over Senator George McGovern in 1972. The World Anti-Communist League didn't cease to exist, but simply re-branded itself. For its associations to Nazis, see Martin A. Lee's The Beast Reawakens: Fascism's Resurgence from Hitler's Spymasters to Today's Neo-Nazi Groups and Right Wing Extremists, pp. 189, 226n).
The clear implication of Kaspersky's statements was that the USA was taking no chances about Russian cyber-operations during the American election, and in the context of the power plant explosion in Murmansk, the possibility that the latter might have been such an attack increases, in my opinion.
But that's not my high octane speculation. Prior to the election, most of the claims that the Russians might attempt a cyber-operation in the American election were coming from people in and around the Clinton campaign. Also circulating in the American media, mostly among the independent free press rather than from the corporate globalist lamestream media, were reports of "counter-coups" being led against the Clinton campaign by ad hoc elements of the American deep state, in support of Mr. Trump(see the various allegations and statements made by Dr. Steve Pieczenik). Most readers here are aware that I've always taken the position that Mr. Trump's campaign represented precisely some faction within the American deep state that was not on board with the neocon agenda of the past three Administrations, i.e., of Mr. Clinton, Mr. G.W. Bush, and of Mr. Obama. The curious absence of mention of these stories among the corporate globalist media, especially on election day, when it would seem to have benefitted Mrs. Clinton, if indeed, the left's assertions of Russian meddling were true, is noteworthy. If anything, Mrs. Clinton's approval of the sale of uranium to Russia would seem to belie her vicious anti-Russian rhetoric during her campaign. So might one be looking rather at an operation that was designed more to warn off the Russians during this crucial period, rather than to assist her flagging campaign? I certainly don't know, but it seems to be worth consideration. But if so, blowing up Russian power plants would seem to be a case of overkill. Such an act would be more one of people trying to generate a crisis, in which instance a change of governments would be unlikely, and hence, of more aid to Mrs. Clinton than to her political opponents. So it seems we're left in the middle, and it's another case of "you tell me."
And there's a final possibility, namely, that these events were part of NATO's massive buildups along the Russian frontier, in expectation of a Clinton victory. But again, that's another case of "you tell me."
But in either case, my intuition leans towards the covert operation explanation, rather than merely an "interesting set of coincidences."
See you on the flip side...

@”about the strange visit of US Secretary of State John “Ketchup” Kerry to the continent of Antarctica while on a global-trotting diplomatic tour, and right in the middle of what may have been the most important election in US history.”
speaking of a strange visit to Antarctica, lets not forget the head of Russian orthodox church Patriarch Kirill set foot on Antarctica for the first time on February 17, only 5 days after another “first time”, on Februrary 12, a historical meeting between the head of the Catholic church and the Orthodox Patriarch took place in Cuba’s Havana, nearly a thousand year after the great schism of 1054.
Cuba, a communist country, is allegedly controlled by the Vatican, the public role Pope Francis played during Obama’s solution points to influence on the regime, the question is was the decades long U.S.- Cuba hostility/tension manufactured, and why?
its safe to say the meeting signified agreement maybe reach between the two parties, since the event took place on “Catholic turf”, likelihood is Vatican been initiator of the discussion.
The subsequent “first time” visit to Antarctica by the Russian Patriarch could not have been merely a coincidence, the real question is:
“is the meeting between the two religous heads after centuries of seperation in early 2016, the same year which the U.S. is going to have perhaps “one of the most important election in U.S. history” merely a coincidence?
a “visit to Antarctica” may have something to do with “Nazis”, whom have been more or less influencing America’s “space program/policy” for decades, after Paperclip and Highjump, but what else might have been exerting influence?
according to Peter Levenda, not only he indeed run into Nazis in South America during his investigation, while on the “Nazi trail”, he also discovered (to his surprise)something else, a “Vatican presence” in America’s space programs.
So, what is Vatican’s position on “space issues”?
Does the alleged (otherwise obvious) “Russian involvement” in this U.S. election, has(if at all) something to do with the “historical meeting” took place back in February?
and how is Edward Snowden’s “call to action” to “this president” fit into the narrative?
a one that is apparently “inconsistent” with the one presented by “Gizadeathstar” and probably majority of so called “alternative media”, aka “free media”, but nevertheless rather “consistent” with Gordon Duff’s description of it, to the degree, that “11/9” was put on par with “9/11”..
perhaps, a decade from now, the question will be changed to “who is really ‘rigging’ the U.S. election?”
instead of mere “who is rigging the election?”, but most importantly “why”?
(though, i doubt it will take that long, since “the opposition” has apparently responded with “determination” as far as i can tell.)
P.S. Snowden has once again break silence,
“We are starting to substitute open government for sheer authoritarianism, a government based not upon the principle of informed consent granted by people who understand its activities but rather a trust in personalities, a trust in claims, a trust in the hope that they will do the right thing,” Snowden said.”
plus, i forgot to mention, two earthquakes struck central Italy this year, one in August and one in October, but i suspect it has nothing to do with the 2016 U.S. election, just another coincidence maybe.
are these people simply ‘globalist’ brainwashed “lefties”, sore loser “libtards”,
or are they what Rudy Giuliani has claimed, “professional protesters”,
or as the collusion of “Russia Today” and “WikiLeaks” (the same organization which back in 2011, was ‘exposed’ by the same ‘RT’ via Webster Tarpley as ‘CIA front’) trying to portrary, “a Soros funded phenomenon”?
or they are all of the above but perhaps also something else?
it seems even RT is not consistent in its attempted explanation of these protests,
even more inconsistent with the promised vision of the nation by Kremlin’s new found friend,
clearly, deals were cut in regard to the 2016 U.S. election, but under what circumstances?
and will the parties involved keep their end of the bargain? and for how long?
now, the popcorns.
The Ruskies have a serious problem. They are competing against an adversary that can print money out of thin air. Imagine all the turn coats/5th columnists that can buy. A well placed bribe there goes a long way.. Their recent “infrastructure accident” was very convienient.. So it appears , their FSB / other internal security agencies have their hands full. Let’s not forget Ukraine’s very hostile foreign funded moves and our boys from Islam. Quite a neighborhood. Plus, let’s not forget they have little if any civil court system. I’m guessing the US could cause more havoc there. Then the Russians can cause here.
“A well placed bribe there goes a long way..”
Yep. Yep it does..
The Russians know who inhabits Hillary Rodham Clinton’s body, and they were justly terrified of “her presidency” as it would have been a “rule by Kali” to put it mildly.
As for the curious coincidences, I think it safe to regard them as an opening volley timed to coincide with Hillary Clinton’s election … think of them as “festal fireworks”… but the festivities had the plug pulled on them when it was clear that the Mother of Darkness had not seized the US American throne as planned.
Pellevoisin, that’s a very interesting ‘take’ on the “festal fireworks”. Usually, a planned DDoS attack has the date of the attack hard-wired into the injected coding. That would fit with your scenario…
Hi all, Forgetr about cyber attacks, this isnt that simple.
The power station was attacked to take power out in Murmansk.
(taken from site – “The new headquarter building is modern and packed with advanced equipment” – but still needs electricity..)
A little bit of contexte.. What’s happening up there?? Other than Anthrax and thawing moose bodies and 45 degreee Celsius weather..
I’ll bet Goshawk’s signed copy of Babylon 5 Episode 1 against Vomitos’ nuclear powered typewriter that this is why a special committee has been put in place..
FSB in the area seems to want to shut down circulation (to stop Syrian Refugees from entering Russia through Scandanavia..) http://windowoneurasia2.blogspot.nl/2016/08/fsb-presses-for-expanding-restricted.html and return things back to a KGB’ish setting..
I’m not seeing anything Space Alienly or Nazi Super Technology here.. I’m almost disappointed.. Looks like Russia wants to use the Northern Artic route to contend against the Suez Canal route..
Kahlypso, I’m actually missing the first Disc of the first season of B5. Several episodes not recorded. Sigh. However, I did pick-up a semi-rare copy of the Babylon 5 ‘game’ at EBay… (grin)
@”my intuition leans towards the covert operation explanation, rather than merely an “interesting set of coincidences.””
neither do i, Sir
you may have heard this before, the Beijing Olympics opened at eight minutes past eight o’clock on August 8,
but did you know exactly 88 days before that, there was a big earthquake hitting the country on May 12, and 5+1+2= ..
looking into the future from then,
8 years later, on August 8, Fidel Ramos visited HongKong as Philippines new president-elect special envoy, he was 88 years old.
interesting coincidences maybe, apparently they have nothing to do with the 2016 U.S. election,
though one may never know otherwise
but other “coincidences” might,
like right after RT reported Julian Assange’s next batch of leaks will lead to Clinton’s arrest, came a sudden and unexpected criticism from Edward Snowden.
as the fugitive NSA whistleblower tweeted
“Democratizing information has never been more vital, and @Wikileaks has helped. But their hostility to even modest curation is a mistake.”
“this may have something to do with “Hillary Clinton””
and it was confirmed sooner than i expected as Wikileak tweeted back
“@Snowden Opportunism won’t earn you a pardon from Clinton & curation is not censorship of ruling party cash flows”
however discreet or less so, the brief clash between the two parties raised the prospect of the fugitive pardoned under a Clinton administration.
On the other hand, “spies in the old days used to be executed”, but does Mr.Snowden really think a pardon under Trump administration is unlikely.
so i was really interested to see what Snowden are saying after the election result, and this is what he tweeted on November 11.
“The powers of one government are inherited by the next. Reforming them is now the greatest responsibility of this President, long overdue.”,
and followed instantly by another tweet,
“To be clear, “this President” means this President, right now. Not the next one. There is still time to act.”
it couldnt have been more clear to me, Edward Snowden urged “this President” to “act” after Trump won the 2016 U.S. election.
to “act” on what? to spare his life because he has already said if this is about himself he would be still in Hawaii instead of where he is now,
or act on something that someone has clearly threatened to “get to the bottom” of
as of now, im giving both of them equal benefit of the double, but like Mr.Snowden said after the election, Obama’s day one pledge of closing Guantanamo has yet to see its fulfilment, afterall,
“a president is just a president”.
people in alternate reality though, could see that only one man, Alfred Lambremont Webre seem to understand it, best surmised in,
“Evidence DARPA-CIA time travel pre-identified Trump as future U.S. President”
“Trump Victory Due to FBI Stopping False Flag Alien Invasion”
perhaps a half million years into the future, Mr.Snowden will see why he began his journey in Hawaii, when the “California problem” got even bigger.
right now, just sit back, and enjoy the greatest show, because finally, something worth the time here is happening, catalyst and divergence
not Trump’s name on the tower, not Clinton’s image on the tower, and certainly not Soros hand on the tower.
riddles, puzzles, pieces, this world is really something, isnt it
“…most of the claims that the Russians might attempt a cyber-operation in the American election was coming from people in and around the Clinton campaign.”
I have been reading Russian-oriented blogs during this election period (primarily The Saker’s) to get a sense of the Russian ‘mood’. They were terrified of Ms Clinton getting elected, mostly because of her hawkishness pushing the world into WWIII. My sense is that the Russians would NOT have done anything to play into Ms Clinton’s “Russians are the devil” stance. Quite the opposite…
Note that the bank attack was only DDoS, therefore any player (including stateless) could have subverted computers around the world and ‘enlisted’ them into a cyber-attack. These days, that is pretty low-tech stuff, doable by any hacking-org.
The power plant blowing-up is interesting because of its location. The Russian Baltic Fleet left Murmansk, I believe, on its way down to Syria. This ‘boom’ could be linked to payback for that expedition…
If this is another case of “you tell me.” I suggest it was a pre-emptive cyber-strike against any possible intervention by the Russians in the American election. Here is a supporting clue uttered by Vice-President “Loose Lips” Biden at the end of October, 2016.
In an interview for NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Mr. Biden was asked by Chuck Todd, the show’s host, whether the United States was preparing to send a message to the Russian president, Vladimir Putin before the American election? Mr. Biden told Todd “We have the capacity to do it.” “He’ll know it,” Mr. Biden added. “And it will be at the time of our choosing. And under the circumstances that have the greatest impact.” Later, after Mr. Biden said he was not concerned that Russia could “fundamentally alter the election,” Mr. Todd asked whether the American public would know if the message to Mr. Putin had been sent. “Hope not,” Mr. Biden responded with what could only be appropriately described as a sneer on his face.
speaking of Kaspersky:
I have Kaspersky as my anti-virus program- strangely, in the last few days whenever I access this website Kaspersky rears its head and announces that this website is an insecure domain and virus protection cannot be guaranteed if I choose to continue on this website; has anyone else with Kaspersky experienced this?
Larry in Germany
Larry, I do not have Kaspersky Anti-Virus, but other av programs have been ‘spoofed’ into flagging sites. What happens is that ‘operatives’ send reports of some sort of ‘malfeasance’ of a site to a firm that aggregates such reports. That firm semi-automatically generates a ‘caution’ flag. Various av firms import that firm’s notice, and thus generate their own ‘flag’.
It usually takes the ‘offending’ site going to that firm and saying WtF?? to get the warning taken-off. It can take a few days to dribble-down to the av firms…
Basically, it is a subtle denial-of-service attack…
many thanks for your generous comment and making me aware of some things of which I was completely ignorant-
Once is happenstance.
Twice is coincidence.
Three times, it’s enemy action.
Auric Goldfinger of James Bond movie (1959)
The Russians can thank their lucky stars these power stations shutdowns weren’t as deadly as what happen to China. As for their banks what’s the old Boy Scout motto “Be Prepared” and boy they nipped this in the bud quickly. Well this seems be another case of The Revenge Of The Neo-Confederates or are they themselves fronts for even darker forces. And if they are fronts will the real villains identity ever be revealed.
Is there a connection between these incidents in Russia and the USA elections riots. And what’s going on in South Korea. Can anybody connect the dots between them or is this a case of coincidences.
You might find this interesting.
Max Keiser’s latest report focuses on Puerto Rico:
Got it mixed up with 933
Sidenote to Vomitos.
Remember what you said about Soros and the Anti Trump protests..
I’ve speculated on this before but if Hillary and Obama are in danger of being arrested by the US government, wouldn’t their ties to the former Soviet Union allow them some kind of safe haven in Russia? Both of these politicians certainly can be linked to communist subversives working inside the US during the cold war and their careers give glaring testimony to their communist ideological grooming. Today they are arguably the greatest champions of the subversive agenda of international communism (when they are not pushing global corporate fascism). In fact, they very well could be the modern nexus for the international communist movement; the torchbearers who have kept the comintern alive as it becomes extinct in it’s birthplace in the east.
As Obama and Hillary are the products of Russian cold war subversion, possibly even outright agents of the Soviet regime, shouldn’t the current Russian government, while no longer communist, still be beholden to them as former agents of the country? Don’t they have a certain moral obligation, if not at least a bureaucratic obligation, to support these loyal agents of Russia’ s past failed global conquest? Japan certainly didn’t abandon all those unwitting soldiers who continued to defend remote islands in the Pacific decades after Imperial Japan surrendered. I’m sure when they returned to Japan, they were given all their benefits, even though Japan now had a new government. Shouldn’t Obama and Hillary be treated the same?
Could this then be the fresh start that both of the these disgraced politicians need? Could they not only reignite their careers in a new land but possibly bring the communist revolution back home to it’s birthplace and get it started again? (You can be certain that they are both fluent in Russian language from a very young age). And considering her loyal service to the Russian revolution, could Hillary even one day position herself to be President of Russia, possibly when Putin retires in 2018? Hillary does claim in her bio that she has some Russian roots. Would this give her eligibility for office? Or would she have to use her billions from the Clinton Foundation to buy her seat in the government? With all her stolen loot, could Hillary even position herself to be Russia’s newest and most powerful oligarch? Could we maybe one day see Hillary squaring off with Trump from the most powerful seat in the Kremlin?
And what about Obama? Could he one day produce a Russian birth certificate to validate his entrance into Russian politics? Would he instantly become the “cool black guy” that all of the guilt-ridden Europeans, both east and west, would fawn over and anoint as their new messiah and then allow him to lead them off a cliff liked dodo birds? Could the new Russian tag team of Obama and Hillary even take up where they left off and resume attempting to enslave the world with their oppressive ideology and economic system? Only time will tell.
And what of Chelsea and Bill you ask? Chelsea will run the Clinton NGO inside the US recruiting snowflakes and super predators to riot on demand and thereby bring about the instability that will pave the way for a communist revolution inside the US. Maybe she will even recruit Clinton nemesis turned lackey Bernie Sanders to lead this new domestic communist revolution. Surely this type of insurrection would appeal to his Brooklyn bolshevik instincts. And if that doesn’t work, Bernie’s addiction to luxury could be facilitated by the enormous wealth of the Clinton Foundation, which would be making a killing by now in Eurasia lead by Bill Clinton who will not only be scoping out new wealthy corporate donors for the Clinton Foundation in the east, but also scoring with an entirely new bevy of naive mistresses who will be totally unaware that he is riddled with transmittable diseases.
This is an interesting speculation. Years ago, during the administration of Bill Clinton, I recall small booklet about Strobe Talbot, one of Mr. Clinton’s chief advisors, was printed, and in it were detailed numerous … well, let’s just say “peculiar” links to extreme left groups and even to Communism in a couple of instances (if my memory serves me correctly). This booklet was printed on 8 1/2 by 11″ paper, and was, if I recall correctly, about 30-40pp in length. I used to have a copy of it, but after many many moves, I think I’ve lost it. If I can find it I will post the title and author here, in case you or anyone else wants to pursue it.
Yes, I would be interested very much. I sensed you were not finished with this subject when you brought it up in a recent book. I think the influence of the communist international in the US can not be downplayed. I got a sense of collective terror within some circles of the US when the Soviet Union collapsed, especially among the more prominent sixties radicals. They were probably worried the KGB files would go public and blow their cover (which actually did happen, didn’t it with no consequences?)
My hope is that sometime in the coming months, President Trump will go to Chicago and give an important speech where he will exclaim: “Mr Putin, take back your radicals and manchurian candidates!”
It may be that Hillary’s remaining faction of the deep state, backed no doubt by globalist Soros, struck a preemptive blow against Russia so as to prevent a possible post-election rapprochement between nationalist East and West powers: the antithesis of the globalists’ agenda. The traceable U.S./West fingerprints therefore were intentionally left behind so as to sow uncertainty between the two powers, in effect framing Trump’s “white hat” deep state faction and thereby hamstringing the future rollback of the globalist agenda. Ideally, in the coming weeks and months we’ll witness yet stronger evidence that the globalists have lost control of their own cadre of deep state knights — or lost control, at least, of a significant enough fraction so as to limit their evil agenda to the open busing of paid goons.
Attack to Brisca? The Swift alternative?
But a DDoS attack? Its like using a wooden stick to break a dam..so primitive..
Looking back at Dr Farrels post about Net connected devices to remote attack on the Internet, and the feelers being put out to try and test the weak areas of the net..
It feels very evilly empirey… I expect to see a bald villain stroking a white cat somewhere..
lol… good one…
First strike before being elected? Killary + neo cons allready celebrating their win and putting their agenda in practice. I think those parasites really got caught off guard with the win of D. Trump.
The “beaten dog” shock on display just after the election is the only true emotion those parasites have “ever” displayed in honesty.
Knowing Russia, I would worry about repercussions.
They really were caught off guard. The woman wouldn’t even come out and give a concession speech, she sent her personal pedo in waiting. My guess is they had to induce her into an artificial coma lest the demons manifest on stage.
LOL, what gave it away? Could it have been that “I am Legion” remark? Or was it both eyes staring in opposite directions while she spoke in a dead language, her head bobbled and spun, while she crawled on the ceiling. These people are dabbling in forces which they most certainly can’t control or understand. The illusion of control is seductive.
ROF… this one made my day and gave me a laugh
Targeting banks reflecting worry about the move by Russia to an autonomous financial clearing network?
Excellent speculation… this also needs to be looked at. While all the election broohaha was going on, there have been some interesting stories coming out of Asia
