… OH, BY THE WAY, BOEING HAS A NEW EMP WEAPON…

A few days ago I blogged about an article from Israel which cited Russian sources that believe the crash of its airliner at Sochi last Christmas was a deliberate take down brought about by some sort of special "radio" means. Before you dismiss that idea entirely, consider this story shared by Mr. J.H.:

Boeing unveils electromagnetic pulse weapon

Granted, this story appeared in 2015, but in the context of my speculations about a new "international Mafia War" hypothesis that I advanced in last year's Dec 29th News and Views from the Nefarium and this week's earlier speculations regarding the crash of the Russian Tu-154 outside of Sochi, this is a story worth revisiting here. Consider the implications of the following statements in the article:

The weapon in question: Boeing's "CHAMP," short for Counter-electronics High-powered Microwave Advanced Missile Project. It's essentially the old nuclear electromagnetic pulse weapon that we used to worry so much about -- but without the nuclear part. CHAMP carries a small generator that emits microwaves to fry electronics with pinpoint accuracy. It targets not nations or cities but individual buildings, blacking out their electronics rather than blowing up physical targets (or people).

What makes CHAMP even more interesting is that, unlike a nuclear electromagnetic pulse weapon, which fires once, blacking out entire nation-states, CHAMP can fire multiple times, pinpointing and blacking out only essential targets. This would permit, for example, taking down radar defenses in a hostile state while saving the electrical grid that supports the civilian population. In a 2012 test flight in Utah, a single CHAMP was reported to have blacked out seven separate targets in succession, in one single mission.

And then there's this even more relevant admission:

Even back then, a Boeing representative was able to boast: "We hit every target we wanted to," predicting further that "in the near future, this technology may be used to render an enemy's electronic and data systems useless even before the first troops or aircraft arrive." Four years later, that future has arrived. Air Force Research Laboratory commander Maj. Gen. Tom Masiello says CHAMP is "an operational system already in our tactical air force."

It takes little imagination to envision that this technology could be mounted on almost anything, from drones, to ships, trucks or vans, and so on, and even in manueuverable space satellites, and that it could be modified to track and target moving targets, such as aircraft.

All of this raises the possibility that those Russian sources speculating that their aircraft was brought down by "radio" means - i.e., something operating in the microwave frequency range of the spectrum - are in all likelihood basing their analysis in part on a knowledge of American electromagnetic weaponry capabilities. In other words, the article raises the possibility of a deliberate downing of the Russian aircraft out of the range of fiction and speculation into a very real world possibility. Similarly, it suggests a similar technological capability on Russia's part may lie behind the USS Donald Cook incident.

If my 'International Mafia Wars" scenario be true, then one may also expect that certain "extra-national" players may have a similar capability, and this means that we can also expect, as a component of any such putative international "Mafia wars" to deploy and engage such technologies. If this should prove to be the case, then one may expect reports of USS Donald Cook style incidents to expand both in numbers of incidents over the next few years, and in the types of incidents recorded: power outages in certain key areas, institutions, and assets in both blocs, in addition to cyber warfare and more conventional "wet works."

That is, if reported at all...

See you on the flip side...

  1. There are other suspect weapons which can put the whole world in a terrible situation.
    I’m coming from Italy and I see from very near the results of several eartquakes from august to november in centre of Italy. This type of earthquakes are not natural, in 50 years of my life living in a dangerous seismic country (same level of California or Japan or New Zealand), I never seen a daily sequence of strong earthquakes that lasts for almost three consecutive months. All this can not be a natural phenomenon, you know well, much better than me what kind of weapon is (which I have heard by now well developed by both Russia and the US). So it is just to figure out who among them has been responsible for hundreds of deaths (as if there were not enough to cause wars every day and carry them out without interruption, and here we can not but think that the Americans are the most suitable as the culprits principal of everything going on in the world from many tens of years).
    Who will pay for all this? There will never be a process to Mrs Clinton for doing assassinate Gaddafi and that million Libyans dead? You know that Milosevic was demonized for more than 20 years to discover that it was not guilty of anything? and it was acquitted by the tribunal for years should process the entire American ruling class of massacres and crimes against humanity for over 50 years?
    Returning to the “strategy of terror” that is pursued for the past 50 years there is someone who will be able to say publicly that certain things must finally change?
    Do we want to stand by and watch the world destroys itself just because there are some hundreds of powerful people who want to make their playground?
    Htiler or Stalin weren’t worst than these people……………
    please trust me, we are very very bad, and things can go only worst if we do nothing.

  2. Nobody sane wants a full-blown nuclear war. That leaves only the ‘small stuff’ to get your point across. Aside from the new ‘micro nukes’, that leaves electromagnetic warfare and horse-heads…

    On the use of EMP to bring down the Tu-154, that would depend on the range between the aircraft and the emitter. Electromagnetic effects go down with the square of the distance between them. So, the emitter would have to have been close. (Even the Boeing EMP cruise missile was acknowledged to needing to have been in close proximity to a target to achieve damaging effects.) So, I would check for emitters almost in the flight path of the Tu-154…

    For the future, I could see almost a “Battlestar Galactica” viewpoint on electronics. Don’t use them. If you want to have electronics in an aircraft (like on the flight controls), be d@mn sure that you have a physical back-up system in-place (like control-cables between the stick and the surfaces). Similarly, remove all electronic controllers, and have a person with an analog gauge and physical switches in the loop. Everywhere.

    It may be more expensive and slow, but it may save your @ss, some day…

    Yes siree Bob, you create[living Earth]…
    We destroy[a rock to be plundered].

    Who knows how many ‘Russian planes’ were taken out over the years? How many Senator Paul Wellstones or Michael Connell Hackers? How many brown/blackouts were engineered?

  4. Old tech, the Russians and Chinese and everyone else must openly have them now for this to go public. Microwave lasers are also good for giving dissidents annurisms and heart attacks by cooking pin point areas inside the brain or heart. I wonder what these potential war crime weapons will do to the occupants of such buildings?

  5. A new deadly toy for our elites to play with in their lethal game of chicken. With the rest of us as their game pieces unfortunately the wounds and death among us will be very real.

  6. So what’s new. pussycat? Those weapons, using bio affective frequencies (an infinity spectrum, after all) have been in use for decades and can produce results from simple ‘brainwashing,’ decision making, to a wide range of physical harm up to compete control of the individual and, of course, death instantly; from stroke, heart attack, or what have you, in seemingly healthy individuals. And I’m certainly NOT speaking of the Russians!

    1. OMG. It MUST be true. I haven’t had such a trouble at your site in a long, long time. Sad to say, from personal acquaintance, I know that it is. 🙁

  7. I can’t wait until the day comes when I can watch an internet video and learn how to build a counter-electronic gizmo. Or better yet, 3D print one. So much for invasive drones buzzing around my house or law enforcement robots handing out tickets on street corners. Our elite better come up with a better plan than this because their high tech surveillance state is already becoming obsolete. We easily got around their intrusive tv and computer cameras with duct tape. It is only a matter of time before we figure out how to dumb down our spying “smart” appliances. Insect drones we’ll eradicate with good old fashioned spider webs. (Spiders will become the new darling of the liberty minded home owner). And nothing like a heavy coat of lead based paint on the side of your home and lots of tobacco smoke on the inside to keep out the microwaves. (Makes me think that my parents were way ahead of their time).

    They better stick to low tech solutions if they want to keep the populous under their thumb. I would suggest they continue to slowly erode the constitution while hiring more consultants from former East Germany. Take a page from the bolsheviks and the Red Chinese and continue to build an army of progressive goons (Progs) who can be used to terrorize people in their homes if they are suspected of culture, climate or hate crimes. Until then I personally will continue to print fake bearer bonds in my basement and pass them off at card games and grocery stores. I may even start raising baby mice in my basement and begin selling their blood to the local ghoulish hipsters at the pizza parlor who dream of living forever but don’t have the cash to ante up for the real immortality juice.

      VB
      Always a pleasure to read your post.
      They’re always vintage;
      whether in or out of moderation.

  8. Thanks I missed that one. Nice to know how much your friendly airliner manufacturer cares about their passengers…

  9. When they begin remotely reprogramming each others ICBM’s, you will know the defecation is about to hit the rotary oscillator.
