During the run up to the Christmas holiday, there were very strange, seemingly unrelated, stories which broke, and some have only been updated just today. Joseph reviews the death of the NATO Auditor General, the assassination of Andrei Karlov, the Russian ambassador to Turkey, and the crash of the Russian military aircraft in Sochi:

        Happy New Year!
        Lately I’ve been thinking about, what I’ve termed interruptive technologies that are only becoming more & more effective. It’s an interference dilemma that collides headfirst w/our brain’s fundamental limitations in cognitive control: attention, working memory , & management.
        [a pause here for a modulation check]

        • Robert Barricklow on December 31, 2016 at 1:06 pm

          That pause was more significant than you think. I’ll continue on this thread.
          This noise[a general term to cover all this phenomena of interruptive technologies] degrades our perceptions, influences our language, hinders effective decision making, and derails our ability to capture and recall detailed memories. This high-tech interference noise is designed to induce behavior from an evolutionary standpoint/perspective; such that operating in our stone-age optimal manner to satisfy our innate drive for information, such as our foraging behavior. [pause]

          • Robert Barricklow on December 31, 2016 at 1:14 pm

            Because, at our core, we are information seeking creatures/beings engaged to maximize information accumulation for our very survival. Because, an ever expanding immersion finds us staring into/down virtual screen worlds that divide our limited attention across complex demands that often should have become a sustained singular focus with/and deep thought to boot. We, instead, need to harness our brain’s plasticity to strengthen our 21st century distracted minds.

          • Robert Barricklow on December 31, 2016 at 1:23 pm

            Well, I got carried away.
            Cut to the pause: There is a perception-action cycle at the core of behavior for all more evolved animals. In this cycle there was a significant milestone – the insertion of a break in the cycle, a time delay between perception and action, a pause. This is where cognitive abilities evolved to disrupt the automaticity[think auto-bot] of the cycle and influence both perception & actions via association, reflection, expectations, & emotional weighting. This synthesis is the true pinnacle of the human mind[disregarding the spiritual being connection/interface with the universe]

    So typical for an oligarchical press. On the hand they scream for an investigation where they committed the crime. They scream to try the patsy; knowing full well they, in fact, did the crime. They killed the last witness to election fraud: Michael Connell – Murdered Dec 19, 2008. A high-level republican consultant who was going to finger Bush’s brain, Carl Rove, in election fraud[2004 Presidential election and the political firing of numerous U.S. Attorney. Any investigation. No. They laughed all the way to their local Federal Reserve branches. They own the banks, the election, and the justice. It’s called Corporate Fascism; and Warren Buffett says they’re winning the war against the little people who actually pay the taxes that bail out their bankrupted casino gulag banksters.

    I don’t think “they” want a war between faction/houses. Whomever instigated this has got to be at crosswords with the U.S. Military and Israel[as Trump in in their camp].

    Fantastic insights Dr Farrel. –

    The US wants to fight a Mafia war with Russia.. Ok, no one really talks about it anymore, but the Russian Gouvernement is/was the Mafia. The American gouvernment is just full of lawyers, bankers, sneaky CIA operatives who’s job it is to inter”fear” with legit foreign, gouvernments (wonder how many elections ‘they’ hacked.. that were PROVEN, lets go take a look.. and possibly child traffickers..and maybe satanists….

    (haaa, I get it now. With that many children sacrificed, HRC cant understand why Moloch didnt give her the presidency, therefore it MUST be external hacking..that’s their proof..)

    Have you heard of the saying that talks about knifes and gun fights?? If NATO isnt willing to go full on all out military WARTIME on the Russians…. then they’re going to get beat by experience.
    Unless its the Russians killing their own in order to be able to blame it on the brazen idiots who are blaring out to all and sundry that we’re gonna attack.. when we choose and when we want in retalitation for an event that we are unable to proof, either because it didnt happen, or because it was done using technology that we dont want to admit exists..

    In fact, I’d say that Barack WANTS Russia to start getting some unilateral payback, therefore he can start responding and escalating… Then if War breaks out..

  6. Guygrr on December 30, 2016 at 12:11 am

    Well I’m pretty sure that was the most timely News and Views to date. Can you guys believe the Obama administration’s shenanigans today? Something tells me Russia has the evidence proving US involvement in the the TU-54 crash and this might be an effort to head off the impending release.

    “Your comment is awaiting moderation.” Engineering analysis of the Tu-154 crash…
    goshawks – December 29, 2016 at 7:58 pm.

  8. goshawks on December 29, 2016 at 7:58 pm

    A full-scale mafia war. Interesting times…

    On the Tu-154 crash, I can offer a ‘professional’ opinion. I am an aerospace engineer and have worked for Boeing. About the only things I would say prior to an accident board are based on the observed behavior of the aircraft, immediately pre-crash.

    No pilot engages in radical maneuvers just post-takeoff. Every pilot is aware that a stall just post-takeoff is immediate death. So, care is taken not to over angle-of-attack the aircraft. Observance of a clear post-stall attitude just after takeoff with an experienced crew is good evidence of a sudden, in-flight emergency.
    The Cassad website reports “Flaps, bitch…” and then comes a cry: “Commander, fall!” on the cockpit voice/film recorder. This, combined with the known stall (both from observer evidence and – according to Cassad – from the flight recorder) suggest some kind of flap-related mechanical malfunction.

    “The Tu-154M and Tu-154M Lux are the most highly upgraded versions, which first flew in 1982 and entered mass production in 1984. … The aircraft has new double-slotted (instead of triple-slotted) flaps, with an extra 36-degree position (in addition to existing 15, 28 and 45-degree positions on older versions), which allows reduction of noise on approach.”
    (I cannot find whether the Tu-154 had slats, so I will leave that out of this analysis.)

    Deflected flaps produce a very strong nose-down pitching-moment. This moment is countered by ‘negative lift’ at the tail. The ‘negative lift’ is produced by trailing-edge-up movement of the elevator, and fixed-rotational-position of the whole horizontal tail if available in that aircraft-type.

    Flaps are normally slowly-retracted as soon as the aircraft reaches airspeed where it can be supported by the clean-wing (i.e., below stall angle-of-attack at that airspeed) – and below any structural limitations due to air-forces on the flaps. For the aircraft-commander to yell-out “Flaps, bitch…” indicates a sudden, unforeseen situation with the flaps. This could be either a linkage jamming in some way, or a physical failure in the flaps themselves.

    I am leaning to the flap-failure side, because of the “Commander, fall!” cry. If the flaps physically-failed, they would no-longer be producing the nose-down pitching moment. Assuming the elevators were being held in fixed-position through this failure-moment, their force would have rotated the aircraft nose-up very quickly. This matches the eyewitness testimony of severe nose-up aircraft position, and the co-pilot noticing the stall on his instruments.

    (Some reports cite a ‘turning back’ maneuver. This could just be an asymmetric stall of the wings, producing what could be interpreted as a ‘bank’ prior to a turn. One wing would drop slightly before the other. The asymmetric lift – one wing still lifting, one wing stalled – would also pull the aircraft around in a slight ‘turn’. This scenario could be created by winds-aloft requiring earlier rudder-sideslip, or in the details of the flaps breaking-up.)

    Once the aircraft was in deep-stall at low altitude, the pilots had no chance to recover before impact. The Tu-154’s T-tail may, indeed, have been in post-stall airflow at that point. But, even an aircraft with a low-mounted tail would have crashed. There was just not enough recovery altitude.

    The only variable, which we may never truthfully know, is whether the flap failure was fatigue-induced or ‘helped-along’ via human intervention.

    If the flaps physically came apart prior to the ‘upset’, there should be lots of ways to detect that in the accident investigation. They should be separate from the debris-field.

    If the flaps themselves stayed-together but a supporting-member failed (allowing the flap segment to rotate with the breeze), that would be much harder to detect. ALL the flaps would have had their supporting-members snapped in the water impact. Distinguishing a pre-crash ‘snap’ from a crash ‘snap’ might be hard…

    Sabotage-wise, flaps are very intricate. Also, due to weight issues, they are built to take ‘just enough’ loads. (These load-issues are carefully ‘Placard’-ed in each aircraft, so the flight crew know about them.) Flaps could be easily-sabotaged in many ways, from lessening the load-carrying capability to introducing something to jam them. Normally, ground-crew are ‘screened’ to minimize these risks, and ground-access to the aircraft is carefully controlled. Whether this was done for THIS aircraft at THIS airport is not known…

    (BTW, in case it is reported this way in the news, it was not ‘pilot error’. If the flaps failed shortly after takeoff, the pilots could not have done anything to prevent the crash. Their only ‘options’ [if they could react in the seconds available] were to stay in the post-stall condition and hit the water slightly nose-up, or to push the nose over and hit the water in a semi-dive. Neither were survivable. It was NOT ‘pilot error’.)

    • Roger on December 30, 2016 at 4:21 pm

      Thanks for the insight. I’m hoping it was just an accident because targeting bands and entertainers is just too low. The CIA should be gotten rid of for good for just what they did to poor orphans here in the US. Every time I see a CIA TV series portraying them as honorable and noble I just want to throw up when I think of what they admitted to experimenting on poor orphans.

    • goshawks on December 30, 2016 at 6:58 pm

      I should mention a related scenario:

      Most takeoffs from non-noise-sensitive runways (like this one) simply put the engines to maximum thrust, rotate, and leave the engines at maximum thrust for climb-out purposes. The flaps are retracted along-the-way as soon as the aircraft has reached an airspeed where the clean-wing would not stall, with the engines still producing maximum thrust. (The maximum thrust is left-on because of the old pilot’s maxim: “The two most useless things are runway behind you and altitude above you.”)

      Now, if the flaps were commanded to retract BUT failed to retract (or went-up slightly and jammed) with the engines at full thrust, the aircraft could have accelerated to where the flaps were beyond their limit-loads within seconds. The crew would have had only seconds to note the failure and put the aircraft into a non-accelerating mode.

      Modern jet aircraft are particularly vulnerable to this ‘situation’, because jet-engine thrust is only controlled by fuel flow; so, some inherent ‘delay’ is built into the system. Even if you chopped the throttles, there would be a few seconds delay in thrust-reduction – a delay added-to by the rotational inertia of the compressor and turbine assembly in the engine. (This is why fighter pilots attempting a carrier landing leave their engines at high thrust and deploy speed-brakes. If a ‘bolter’ happens when an arresting-cable is missed or breaks, the pilot can retract the speed-brakes almost instantly and attempt a go-around.)

      So, an unexpected flap ‘non-retraction’ could have been very dangerous at maximum thrust. (The crew might have had a chance with some kind of speed-brake deployment, but most airliners do not have them. Also, spoilers on the wing are often ‘locked out’ above a certain airspeed.) The flaps may have been in ‘overload’ condition before acceleration was neutralized. Break-up would ensue. The subsequent ‘pitch-up’ scenario would fit-in with my comment above.

      Again, the only variable – which we may never truthfully know – is whether the flap-malfunction was age-induced or was ‘helped-along’ via human intervention…

    Unfortunately, the actual people behind the scenes who are ultimately responsible for this nonsense will not be touched by any of this. Soros and his ilk are too well distanced from it through their underlings. While it would be nice to see these people suffer the same fate as their victims, don’t look for that to happen at all. Eventually, someone will have to begin cutting the heads off the snakes. Once that begins to happen you just may see a toning down of these covert actions and saner actions begin to take hold.

  10. OrigensChild on December 29, 2016 at 5:00 pm

    When I saw the signature of the Ambassador’s assassination I immediately saw the silhouette of the Co-opted Intelligence Actors-guild’s playbook. I did not accept the Russian’s official declaration of the lost flight for the same reasons Dr. Farrell listed in his News and Views. Anyone familiar with the history of the Cold War recognizes such statements as a deterrent to an extreme sanction against opposing non-combatants. Now is not the time for dramatic responses with large numbers of death as collateral damage and the major offenders getting away without sanction.

    On November 10th I assumed the globalists who lost were becoming desperate and the motives beneath their reactions will feature prominently in geopolitics in the days before Trump’s administration officially begins. If these western oligarchs are foolish enough to start a mafia war Putin is not the man to wage it against. He has the gray matter they lack to fight such a war and win. Technology alone is not sufficient to win a mafia war if the enemy has a brain and access to technologies himself. But if the western oligarchs are foolish enough to make Putin the windmill to their champion Don Quixote I will not stand in anyone’s way. I just hope and pray the several mafia “families” kill themselves off in ample numbers to give the rest of us the opportunity to survive the conflict. I want a better world for my kids. This one is too dark as it is.

    Does anybody really believe that Russia was hacking the DNC and election, well I think most people would not believe it. I mean the CIA has about as much credibility as a NAZI spy, Reinhard Gehlen is just an example. The three letter agencies of the United States of Amnesia ALL have worts, and big one’s at that, so just like the politicians, it’s “BELIEVE NOTHING – QUESTION EVERYTHING.

    The first murder I was not aware of just wondering what he found auditing NATO books that put his name on a bullet. I was hoping the TU-154 crash was just a unfortunate accident but body parts has bomb written all over it. If these two assassinations plus the airplane a connected well anyone for Killer Kane for president and who is really running the CSA a bunch of overgrown juvenile delinquents?

    • Roger on December 29, 2016 at 3:57 pm

  16. Owl on December 29, 2016 at 11:38 am

    Let’s put one lie to rest- Russia would have had a hard time hacking our elections. Voting machines are not connected to the internet. Something the MSM could easily find out but won’t. However, machines can be hacked from inside via programming, memory cards, etc. This is where you see votes being switched on screen, fractional manipulation of totals, pre-loaded votes, last minute programming changes, etc. In fact, I think George Soros has an interest in a voting machine company.

    Election fraud is not a factor of party, it is about power and money. What we learned from the leaks- not hacks- of the DNC shows the tip of an iceberg. Wikileaks has always maintained it was a leak, not a hack, that showed the ugly truth about Hillary and the party she hijacked.

    It has been said that take away California, and/or New York and there, mostly NYC, Trump wins the popular vote. Any place without voter ID laws is prime. Election fraud is more profitable in larger, urban areas where it is likely to be less noticed.

    What is going unreported is that Georgia reported up to three attempts, I think, by the Department of Homeland Security to hack into their election system- and by that I don’t mean the machines, I mean the whole apparatus by which the system is run. Since then, there have been similar reports from West Virginia and Kentucky.

    So, just who was involved, and is the finger being pointed at Russia to cover something else up?

    • OrigensChild on December 29, 2016 at 4:11 pm

      Owl, you just summarized all of the issues that MUST be resolved BEFORE anyone can take the Russian hacking angle seriously. Add to that the rampant activity in Michigan (when after mandatory vote recounts there are whole districts in Democratic strongholds with serious issues) and Wisconsin you dilute the Russian hacking story even further. With respect to Russian hacking I live in a constant state of Missouri. If anyone insists on arguing the point, it is necessary for them to show us the evidence. If they cannot provide proof they have NO case. If they have no case they should simply shut up! I, for one, don’t want to hear this anymore. There is enough real fraud to prosecute than one involving fairy tales and outright lies from TLA’s with known political agendas.

      • Roger on December 29, 2016 at 6:10 pm

        Any day now they may finally finish fabricating it. But even if they did, when is any election not manipulated by all those concerned as much as they can? That’s life.

        • OrigensChild on December 30, 2016 at 11:14 am

          Unfortunately, Roger, elections are manipulated to some degree. You quip about “That’s life” is unfortunately true. I had a family member who served a county as a comptroller in the past who served exactly one term. His ambition was to become a state legislature, but his short flight into public service was cut short because he did not wish to participate in the corruption. He was elected out of office after one term with more votes cast in the district than there were voters on the roles. He chose not to contest the election. Point is, if local districts are run this way, why should we expect state and federal elections to be any different?

          • Roger on December 30, 2016 at 4:30 pm

            Exposing truths that need exposing is one thing. If the Russians did that then they did the US a public service. But cheating and fraud should be stood up against by everyone. Most Americans are wondering right now why Podesta and his bunch haven’t been investigated and arrested yet. That’s more concerning and worrying than the Russians airing out dirty laundry we all need to know about. Something a real press would do if we still had one.

    • goshawks on December 29, 2016 at 8:40 pm

      Owl, you make excellent points. About the only ‘revision’ I would make is that the PTB chose Hillary as their agent-in-place. She then ‘rode’ the DNC…

      (I believe Hillary was ‘chosen’ for the 2016 Presidential slot back in 2008. That was when Hillary and Barack were running neck-and-neck in the Democratic primaries. Each of them ‘disappeared’ from public scrutiny for a few hours, right as the 2008 Bilderberg Conference took place in Chantilly VA [out of rotational sequence], and both were within car-travel distance. My theory is that Barack was ‘anointed’ for some reason, and Hillary was assured of a Presidential spot ‘next’. Soon after that meeting, Barack’s star rose and Hillary’s fell. Unproveable, but likely…)

  17. basta on December 29, 2016 at 7:03 am

    Of course Trump has made it abundantly clear that he thinks the whole blame-Russia-for-all-our-failures thing going on is total BS. It will be interesting to see if he can actually rein in the 3-letter nutjobs.
