If you've been following the developing theories about the USS Fitzgerald ramming in Japan, you'll be interested in this article shared by Mr. D.F.(copy and paste into your browser:

The article reiterates many of the points I argued in my own previous comments on this incident, namely, that I find it difficult to rationalize a collision with a US Navy frigate due to simple incompetence for a variety of reasons. Ships just don't "sneak up" on other ships. Collisions of ships do happen, of course, on occasion. And the results can be tragic (think only of the Andrea Doria). But in the main, a ship venturing into the "danger" zone of any nation's warships would be hailed, warned off, quarters sounded, and evasive action taken.

But as far as I am able to tell, none of this apparently happened with the Fitzgerald, if the various internet reports, such as the above, are to be believed.

Assuming that they are, the report argues more or less as I did previously, that in the absence of clear explanations, we must assume that the steerage and other operational and communications systems of the vessel were not operational, for whatever reason. Why, for example, was the captain still apparently asleep? Under circumstances of a potential collision or threat to the ship, again, evasive action would have been ordered and the captain woken up and notified. This implies that it was not possible to move the ship nor wake the captain through the internal communication system.

But toward the end of this strange article - and again, I am not familiar with this website, nor its reliability. I am presenting it for your consideration, as I know many readers here are following this story - we have the following:

The first time the container ship approached the USS Fitzgerald, the Fitz was still fully functional.

An airplane or drone flying overhead was responsible for the energy pulse that killed all electricity on the warship. (the whole event took place in the wee hours of the morning from 1:30 to 2:20 AM)

The container ship was required to turn back toward the Fitzgerald to do its job as commanded by whoever EMPulsed the ship.

In turning back to do the “job” the container ship did not have great positioning to destroy the vessel and so ended up only disabling rather than sinking the thing.

Thus, the CIA-planned story (aka false flag attack) could not be used as many on board the Fitzgerald saw what really happened, and survived.

The CIA plot was probably an attack by Russia or China or NK.  A contingency plan was then quickly implemented; one that they could feed to those present as a legitimate story.

The bottom line here is that this attack was quite likely a false flag operation in the tradition of the USS Maine (“Remember the Maine!”), the RMS Lusitania (World War I false flag), and the USS Maddox (aka the Gulf of Tonkin incident).


Either someone wants war.  Or, someone else seeks to prevent war.

While this attack on the USS Fitzgerald appears to be a typical CIA-coordinated false flag attack designed to start a war, it appears to have been a real attack perpetrated to prevent one.

In other words, it was an conspiracy within a conspiracy, and/or a false flag within a false flag. Yes, it’s really that complicated.  As it frequently when one camp is trying to start a war as aggressively as the other side is working to avert one.

To my knowledge, no one from government, or corporate controlled media, has yet even stated that this was an attack: the "attack" hypothesis seems to be largely concentrated - at present - in the free and independent media.

The scenario is, however, worth noting, because as the article itself avers, the incident could be seen as a part of a wider pattern of such electromagnetic interference with US forces, beginning with the now infamous Donald Cook incident, to the alleged Russian defeat of NATO communications systems in Syria shortly after that nation's intervention there, to a repeat of the Donald Cook incident, involving the Donald Cook once again, this time, in the Baltic Sea with yet another Russian Sukhoi-22 fighter-bomber. While I have not seen corroboration of the allegation that there was an airplane overhead during the incident, there would not need to be, if indeed this was an electromagnetic attack, which for the reasons outlined above I believe it to be. Such an attack could have come from the container ship itself or other nearby vessels, and perhaps even from the shore.

For my two cents' worth of high octane speculation, however, I have difficulty believing this was a CIA plot that was also, as the article states "an attack by Russia or China or (North Korea)." This would imply the CIA is in cahoots with those nations in an overly complicated plot to start a war. While I don't put anything past the departments and agencies of the federal swamp and believe they're pretty much capable of anything in spite of the many good people in government, I just find that one a bit too much to swallow.

What I don't have difficult swallowing, however, is the possibility that those nations may have learned of a plot, or course of action. After all, the US Navy has recently deployed three carrier battle groups to that region, which is an enormous concentration of naval power usually presaging some sort of American action.


... the electronics system, and maybe even the steerage system, of an expensive frigate fails...


And that translates into the message that the article begins with: "your navy may not be in as solid control of the sea lanes as you think it is." And that means the same might go for (1) aircraft, and more importantly (2) space-based assets, if a similar electromagnetic platform exists in space, or on the ground capable of reaching space. And that means in turn, those "smart bombs" may not work too well, and it may be rather difficult moving troops and supplies to deal with "threats."

Of course, for years, there have been rumors that the Russians have very advanced electronic warfare systems, rumors which the Russians from time to time have "stoked." Shortly after the first incident with the Donald Cook, Russian television aired a one hour review of some of those systems - no doubt for the deliberate attention of analysts in the Pentagram - and the effect of that broadcast was that it gave the impression that this electronic warfare interference with missile systems would make them behave like wildly misfiring bottle rockets, going off crazily in all directions... everywhere, but on target.

It's a very Russian sort of approach to such things. The American anti-missile system is, we've been told, one of the approach of hitting a bullet with a bullet. The Russian anti-missile system approach is simple to interfere with the flight path by whatever means, including scrambling the electronics and turning expensive American rockets into crazy bottlerockets.

In any case, messages are being sent, and it's interesting to note that, for a brief moment, things quieted down after the Fitzgerald incident.

See you on the flip side...

    There wasn’t much discussion about it in the mainstream, though there was some sort of signalling by a key figure within the timeframe of the incident. An arrangement is quite apparent..

  2. Aridzonan_13 on July 8, 2017 at 12:31 pm

    I’ve been toying with a different theory. We have an International MIC. That are partnered to make sure there is War w/o End Amen. The US and USSR have the 1, 2 arm sales on the planet. So, war is good for the PTB’s bottom line. Hence, why there can be so much bloodshed via proxy wars and cooperation between US/USSR/China, etc.. My best guess is Trump was forced to shoot missiles into Syria because, we hadn’t burned our allotment of ordinance for that period.

  3. goshawks on July 7, 2017 at 7:57 pm

    I was reading a couple nights ago on the naval Guadalcanal Campaign (WWII history buff). The US and Japanese navies were roughly equal at this point in time, and there is an area off Guadalcanal called “Ironbott0m Sound” to this day for the mult1tude of ships (warships) sunk in this area.

    The reason I bring this up is because the Japanese – not having deployed radar – trained very heavily on night Vision-based tactics. The US – having just gotten ‘iffy’ radar on their ships – somewhat neglected this skill. As a result, the Japanese often saw us first (at night) and beat us badly. (We lost four Heavy Cruisers in one battle, with negligible Japanese losses!)

    When I process the Fitzgerald incident, I see the same conditions. The bridge was probably depending on radar plots, with the lookouts almost superfluous. “Radar will tell us what to look for.” Tech over eyeballs.

    Given that ‘reality’, I could see two inputs to create the collision: First, a StuxNet-style attack on the radar screens (plus the alerts) on the Fitzgerald. Someone might be coming, but the screen-readers would never know. Second, a ‘car-jacking’ of the autopilot on the Philippine cargo ship – with or without a StuxNet-ing of the bridge instruments. Think of the poor chauffeur in Moscow whose limousine suddenly ‘swerved’ into oncoming traffic.

    Note that this was at night, far from a harbor. Two sleepy crews would have been on routine night-watch. Radar on the Fitzgerald sees nothing to worry about; lookouts ‘cue’ on this input and relax. On the cargo ship, the vessel is on autopilot with the minimal bridge crew relaxing and catching-up on other stuff. Last-second horror, and Crunch.

    In my personal opinion, this is just another lesson on delegating human responsibilities to tech. Just like all reactors and power plants should now have physical switches to throw in important places – and humans in-place to throw the switches – naval vessels should ‘revert’ to humans in the loop and mechanical backups.

    Hey guys, your own electronics may become your worst enemies…

    (“Why” this was pulled-off, I have no clue. I could guess, but that would serve no purpose. I would proceed in the direction of intensely-examining the cargo-ship autopilot and a micro-examination of the Fitzgerald’s radar ‘code’. By independent experts. Ain’t gonna happen, so we’ll probably never know Who and thus Why…)

    • goshawks on July 7, 2017 at 8:35 pm

  6. Robert Barricklow on July 7, 2017 at 11:16 am

    There are a lot of things in this “story” that are good news.
    One: the breach in intelligence.
    Two: the breach in electronic warfare implying a sea change has been taking place.
    Thee: a sophisticated black ops job that has many layers and purposes. Also, that it implies a traitor in the heretofore 9/11 operations fluidity; an anvil [not fly] in the ointment.

  7. Frank on July 7, 2017 at 11:11 am

    OUTSTANDING!!! Today’s blog is spot on. I knew as soon as this happened that there was something was strange from the get go. The evidence is overwhelming. Everything about this incident is so contrived. Excellent blog.

  8. DanaThomas on July 7, 2017 at 9:31 am

    Don’t underestimate Japan either. It might have had one of the roles proposed in the article scenario – directly or through a proxy or proxies. What better gesture than to show that the 72-year phase of Washington’s domination there can, and must, come to an end.

  9. Lost on July 7, 2017 at 8:42 am

    Are we the public getting the whole story? No.

    But why did the look-outs not see the cargo ship?

    Why if some force had killed the radar was the captain asleep?

    Seems highly speculative, and presumes no capacity to use even a satellite phone, or very secret communications gear, not acknowledged, don’t know if the ship carried it:

    “ First the ship was immobilized, and then the ACX Crystal came back around after the Fitzgerald was surely incapacitated — weapons systems and all — to bifurcate the ship in two. Why the massive container ship failed to sever the US warship remains a question worthy of serious consideration.”

    “Russia, China and other BRICS-aligned nations now possess weapon technologies which far exceed the capacity of the United States and United Kingdom (the former rulers of the seven seas) to defend against.”

    It’s like this guy hasn’t paid a bit of attention to Bearden, who’s real specific that the UK does indeed have these weapons, and he’s likely being set up as someone to claim the US doesn’t. And US Navy ships have carried beam weapons, not lasers, for decades.

    The prognostications of Stratfor are to be considered active misdirection, or more likely just uninformed.

    • Kahlypso on July 7, 2017 at 9:20 am

      Stratfor???? What that company made up of ex CIA drug human and organ trafficking experts??
      I wonder what they have to say abot this.. Probably something in the region of.. “Darn it we missed the frigate..”

  10. Kahlypso on July 7, 2017 at 8:42 am

    There are certain ‘elements’ to this story that make me think of the 911 attack on New York..
    Use civilian vessals to ram ‘military targets’ (ok the towers werent military, but the symbolism was there..)
    Then look for bad boogie men everywhere and anywhere except the people how actually piloted the darn thing into the other thing(s)
    On 911 it was saudi arabians.. (allegedly) so America went and bombed Afganistan into (even more) rubble.
    Here the Phillippines have been completely left off the hook..

    I think that whoever wanted to use this as a false-flag-start-a-war is the same bunch of bozos who set up the bay of pigs.. They think that they’re intelligent and clever, but technically they’re dumb idiotic and clumsy. . . Sounds like a bunch of Yale Frat boys to me.

    Im all up for an EM attack. but is there any report stating that the ships suffered from EM attack? And if the Military grade Destroyer Frigate could fried like shrimp.. how on earth did the Phillipino-Winnevago get through the attack??
    I cant get the idea that the sailors were put to sleep by radio waves out of my mind..

  11. Helden Spirit on July 7, 2017 at 8:04 am

    During the Oliver Stone ‘Putin Interviews’, Stone asked Putin about the Donal Cook incident in the Black Sea. Putin said it was part of the shore based land-to-sea anti-ship coastal defense system. Implying that the fighter jet actually had nothing to do with. Maybe the jets were there to underscore that the US warships would be liking shooting fish in a barrel, and the Russians used the older jets to show they were not actually going to really shoot the Donald Cook, only demonstrating what would happen in a ‘hot’ scenario,, and maybe even that old jets from the 1970s will be able to take out your most advanced ships once our Russian secret weapons are deployed.

  12. basta on July 7, 2017 at 7:48 am

    I’ve read enough comments by Navy veterans appended to articles on this subject to fully accept that this incident is much more involved than the empty husk of a report given out for public consumption. All commentators stress the many levels of redundancy and the heightened alert protocols when in commercial sea lanes that make an accidental collision in this situation an impossibility.

    So yes, something else went on, and an EMP disabling the ship is a logical explanation. But then was the tanker hacked and remote-controlled, a la 911?

    I don’t see the need of a counter-plot to stop the original plot, since it is quite evident that the original plot succeeded: the US ship was disabled and rammed by a tanker. That obviously was the goal, and it obviously succeeded. So then, whodunit? Russia, China, North Korea, a false flag to gin up a crisis, or even Japan (US out of Okinawa?)? Or SMERSH?

    • basta on July 7, 2017 at 8:12 am

      On further reflection, I’d tentatively go with China, who sees the US Navy as a grave threat to its ambitions in the South China Sea, and most definitely is not on board with the hysteria being whipped up by the US over its Korean client state.

      To render the most advanced US Navy ship a sitting duck without any outward sign of attack, then nearly sunk by the maritime equivalent of a Winnebago is a pretty strong message that I would think might even grab the attention of the most ardent neocon war hawks.

      Also, who is to say it was an EMP and not simply the exploitation of back-doors that China has placed in the electronics? After all, China supplies most electronics components to the West and this is a recognized security vulnerability.

  13. primal_murmur on July 7, 2017 at 7:16 am

    “Shortly after the first incident with the Donald Cook, Russian television aired a one hour review of some of those systems”
    Can anyone provide good links for this? So far only getting propaganda and brief summaries.

    On that subject, remember “Popular Mechanics” pathetic attempt to debunk 9/11 truth? Here they go again:

  14. Vomito Blanco on July 7, 2017 at 7:10 am

    Why do we have to rule out North Korea? This is exactly the kind of out-of -the-box thinking a tiny nation of very intelligent and well educated people would cook up. Considering it was a Japanese freighter makes me suspect the North Koreans even more. The American imperialists better reconsider their threats against these plucky reclusive people who only want to be free of permissive western culture and crass materialism.

    The next move for Kim is to capture Ivanka Trump. Let the US launch a thousand ships to rescue her and then watch as North Korea’s dragon drone force come to greet the ships breathing Electromagnetic pulses leaving the disabled ships as sitting ducks for North Korean subs, artillery and jets and perhaps some other secret weapon the US doesn’t know about. Perhaps that sailor who disappeared on the USS Fitzgerald for a week wasn’t just your run-of-the-mill American cowardly oddball but in fact a message to the US by the North Koreans that they have technology which can make things just disappear and then reappear. Maybe the North Koreans sent this message already with the missing Indonesian passenger jets?

    • Phil the Thrill on July 7, 2017 at 11:51 am

      While we are extolling the virtues of the North Koreans, let us not forget that they are also not fatty. Li’l Kim may appear to be so, to the unpracticed/jaundiced/myopic/crossed Western eye. However, he is portly; an important distinction. It would behoove us to never confuse portliness with fattiness. The Los Angeles Dodgers have a portly Korean pitcher who startled everyone (but his countrymen recently), when he showed off an astonishing vertical leap whilst snagging a comebacker.
      I, for one, find it delightful that our Pentagram’s confidence/hubris is being seriously challenged.

      • Vomito Blanco on July 7, 2017 at 3:38 pm

        Yes Phil. The Koreans are a stocky breed but shouldn’t be confused with obesity. Their food supply is still out o the hands of American big agricultural so there strong bodies burn fat as their fuel and not sugar. In combat, they will be able to go for several days without food as their bodies can draw upon their reserves of fat without triggering those emergency hysteria hormones that are released by Americans after two hours without sugar or caffeine. In this regard the US imperial forces will be no match for the North Koreans, if they attempt to invade.

        The other day leader Kim climbed a 9000 ft sacred mountain in just his overcoat and leather shoes. I would like to see Regent Kushner attempt such a feat. I doubt he even climbs the stairs at his Manhattan penthouse. And when he does leave the penthouse, Jared Kushner stays in his upper crust orbit of DC, Tel Aviv and the Hamptons. He is never out among the common folk like fearless leader Kim. Leader Kim clearly loves his people while Regent Kushner only sneers at them and calls them Goyim as he drives them off the road. I ask in all sincerity: who would you prefer as your leader? One who thinks he is a god in his own talmudic mind like Kushner or one who is revered as a god by millions of people like Alexander the Great? Considering the ease at which he climbed this mountain, perhaps Kim is a god? I for one will not let the corporate/CIA media or the alt right media shape my opinion of Kim just because he fashions a peculiar haircut. (Notice both media formats are suspiciously in agreement on Kim’s nuttiness. I remember another god who came along 2000 years ago and got this same shabby treatment by the establishment. They persecuted this man of the people who also didn’t want war.)

        I hope Kim dares to kidnap Ivanka. It would be the best thing that ever happened to her (unless she gets food poisoning). Sure, Kim’s race has walked upright far longer than the other races so their reproductive organs are smaller, but Kim will demonstrate that he is much more the man then Jared Kushner in a million other ways. Especially when Kushner launches the US navy to return Ivanka and start a second Trojan War.

        • Phil the Thrill on July 8, 2017 at 10:14 am

          I did see your comment and your link, Sir. Hah! Kim stands on top of the mountain, watching the sunrise. A sun-gazer, just like me! If it were possible, I admire the man that much more.

      • Vomito Blanco on July 7, 2017 at 3:40 pm

I think the hipsters call that ‘hot wife’ or some inane liberal sexual fad. so if you want o dispute this in court, be my guest I have all the evidence.

I certainly do love opera, Jon Vickers’ rendition of the erste akt of Die Walkure being one of my favorites. Did you refer to Dr. Farrell as a god? ‘godly’ ?! While Dr. Farrell’s intellect and wisdom is profound and to be admired, to associate him with a God undermines the very notion of what God & Goddesses are.
