I know, I know: this is the longest multi-part blog I've written on this website, and I promise, sooner or later it will end and we'll move on to other topics (of which there are plenty). But I think the story of the ramming of the US Navy's Arleigh Burke class Aegis missile frigates is important, both for what they're telling us, and what they're not telling us. This fourth part is necessary because there's one final question to be considered, one that leads to a rather different area of high octane speculation. That question is simply: "Who's behind it?" In this respect, my high octane speculation today, compared to that of the first three parts of this blog, has even less twig underneath it than yesterday's. We are standing at the tip of the twig with our full weight with nothing but air beneath us. Nonetheless, I think it's essential to speculate here.

Who's behind it?

Readers who have been following these blogs will recall that I believe that it is necessary to view the USS Donald Cook incidents, the Fitzgerald and the McCain incidents, "whole," for the simple reason that to my mind all four incidents (remember, there were two with the Donald Cook) show signs of some sort of technologically induced deliberate external influence in the operations of the ships. It was not mere "crew" or "officer" incompetence. As I've pointed out in the previous parts of this multi-staged blog, in the case of the Donald Cook incidents, the Russians were clearly responsible, and have recently claimed responsibility for it in their media.

In consideration of the question "Who's behind it?" let's look at the two main contenders, Russia, and China.

Was it Russia?

Russia, as indicated, is a contender simply for the reason that the Donald Cook incidents were clearly initiated by that country. It is important to this question, however, to consider the conditions under which Russia sent its messages in the Donald Cook incidents. In both cases the Donald Cook was operating, so to speak, in Russia's back yard and during a period of high tension, during which rhetoric in the United States' leadership was approaching the "complete hysteria" zone of the Anti-Russia meter. During these times there were also "ratcheted up" signals of possible dramatic expansion of the American campaign against Syria and even one against Iran. Faced with the potential of war in the region, I suspect that the Donald Cook incidents, and particularly the first one, were designed not as hostile actions but as warnings to carefully consider the consequences of a military confrontation between the two nations.

In the case of the last two incidents, however, we have a case of actual ramming, with human costs in injuries and lost lives involved. I doubt highly that Russia would, in the geopolitical tensions in North Korea, Japan, and that part of the world, have risked the actions against the Fitzgerald, and similarly with the McCain with tensions so high between the USA and China in the South China Sea and the Malacca Straits.  It simply is ratcheting up tensions needlessly and risking too much to do so. The message was sent and "received" in the Donald Cook incidents, and there was no need to reinforce it. These considerations apply regardless of what the actual mechanisms causing these incidents was: electromagnetic systems interference, remote mind manipulation, or faulty computer chips or some combination of them all. Russia would have everything to lose, and little to gain, by sponsoring such attacks.

Which brings us to the next main contender:

Was it China? As we noted in the previous parts of this blog, there was a peculiar progression evident in the Fitzgerald and McCain incidents. The Fitzgerald incident did not provoke much more than tight-lips, but the McCain incident, following so closely upon it, forced the Navy to state a position, which, you'll recall, was initially the "incompetence hypothesis," which moved, quietly in the past few days, to an admission that the naval staff has "suspended all operations", and was undertaking a review of "everything," including crew training, management, and so on. During these admissions, various military officers of flag or general rank have floated the "cyber-hacking-faulty computer chips from China" meme.

From one point of view, this is certainly possible, given that the USA has shipped much of its crucial industry overseas under the various "free trade" agreements forced on the government by Mr. Globaloney, beginning with GATT(General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade).  The USA and China are certainly also at loggerheads over Chinese claims in the South China Sea and over China's "One Belt One Road" project. China, for its part, has been making slow and steady progress on the latter, and this past year we've seen the first freight trains run all the way from China to the United Kingdom, and back again. However, there are strains in the Chinese economy, and the biggest problem for the Chinese leadership remains the management of its enormous population in a land mass that cannot sustain the food needs of the population. Geopolitically, China has much to lose by risking such actions in my opinion.

There's another consideration to entertain here: assume, for a moment, that the claims of corrupted Chinese computer chips in the US military's systems are true. This would constitute a "hole card", so to speak, which would be a crucial force multiplier in situations of actual military confrontation and hostilities. Under such conditions, in my opinion it would be doubtful that the Chinese government would reveal the fact during such comparatively "low level" incidents. It would be much more likely to do so under conditions in which - God forbid - American military assets and Chinese military assets began actually shooting at each other. Showing the hand at this stage of the game only alerts the USA that its electronics and computer systems "have a problem." Russia, as noted, has only revealed a limited aspect of its capability, leaving one to guess what the full measure of their capabilities actually are.

Which brings us to a third possibility, the most "high octane" speculation of them all: some other party, possibility an extra-territorial actor, is in play, and is attempting to create tensions between these three powers. Regular readers here and of my books will know that I have posited such an "extra-territorial actor" in my various books on post-war Nazi survival, and did so again in my book on 9/11, Hidden Finance, Rogue Networks, and Secret Sorcery. In the latter, I posited not two operational levels to 9/11 - the public one and the covert one of rogue networks within the American security and intelligence apparatus, the "typical" scenario of most "911 truth" researchers - but that that second deeper level was itself penetrated by an even deeper level, an extra-territorial one of international extent. Indeed, I pointed out the pre-911 statements of Russian economist Dr. Tatyana Koryagina which warned of an attack on US soil by precisely such a network.

It stands to reason such an entity would not simply cease to operate. However, it might be objected at this juncture that in the case of the Fitzgerald and McCain incidents that we see no corresponding "operations" or attacks against Russian or Chinese interests. Granted, this is a problem, but not one that is entirely fatal to the speculative hypothesis, provided one is willing to widen the context and dataset a bit, for there have been such incidents. Recall only those strange explosions at Chinese chemical plants just a few years ago. At that time there was speculation that the USA had used its alleged "rod of God" technology, i.e., space-based kinetic weapons, to take out the Chinese plants. Again, I doubted at the time that the USA would (1) risk such an action when the consequences would be dire and (2) reveal the existence of such a capability. Another, extra-territorial entity, bent on creating tension between the three powers, might be willing to do so. Similarly, there were Russian incidents where their own sophisticated systems did not perform "up to specification," so to speak. Recall only the incident at Sevastopol, during an exercise and "show" for the civilian population when a missile firing was conducted, and the missile misfired. Recall also the incident at the Russian powerplant near Murmansk, when the power plant exploded. At the time, Russian state-controlled media was speculating that this may have been the result of deliberate action and sabotage.

Of course, all of this is speculation, and your guess is as good as mine.

See you on the flip side...

    One thing that’s always intrigued me is how, allegedly, the US and Russian leaders had special phones that allowed a direct verbal link between the White House and the Kremlin. The ostensible reason given was in case a rogue faction in one or both countries, like the military, decided to launch ballistic missiles without their government’s consent, the leaders could talk directly and possibly stave off WW 3. Now I wonder if there was another reason for those phones.

  2. Maatkare3114 on August 30, 2017 at 4:52 am

    Very interesting thoughts from Mr Farrell once again. Maybe it’s time to take another look at the three mysterious satellites orbiting Earth (following a leak from NORAD in the 1960’s) to see just what they are capable of and exactly what they are doing there in the first place.

    Ok.. so Major HOS..
    If the Nazi’s are indeed running an extra-territorial civilisation and they are.. or are not.. building flying saucers… (it feels like they are though.. the timing of the saucers arriving.. and the end of the war and all the documents that research as recently uncovered following declassification.. and ardent reporters poring through East blog documents.. that may or may not be able to navigate as successfully through water as they can through outer space and everything in between..

    • Kahlypso on August 30, 2017 at 4:56 am

      oops… )
      That they have EM technology that goes beyond Magrav Torque physics, phased radio antennas, built out of meta material and explosive EM / Radiowave suppression technology.. that can turn Nuclear Warheads on and off (‘x’ amount of stories of military camps being buzzed…) building up to and including the Phoenix lights, and presidential (US..) visits to Bariloche.. to see..?? The Evil Nazi Leadership…(??)
      I suppose the only real question that bears any weight against this very likely scenario is.. If they indeed have all this stuff and advanced tech.. why are they bothering to give so much warning??
      If they have UFOs and USOs that are capable of ‘clap on clap off”ing ICBMs loaded with nuclear payloads… then why arent they simply making the Frigate’s ‘disappear’ like Civilian Commercial Airplanes….rather than showing up the technological inequity between themselves and their ‘Rican Foes’.. (although.. Idnt imagine that they’d use it on the Russians more.. seeing as it was the Russians who beat them in WW2…)

      I cant see the WHY behind the reasoning.. not yet..

      Although Dr F has often remarked that there are possibly multiple factions within Nazi International Inc. so it could be as simple as internal quarreling…

      (simple.. lol)

  4. Kahlypso on August 30, 2017 at 3:15 am

    I don’t know if the Russians did EM Bomb The Donald Cook.. If they DID, then a very serious and well managed camapaign has been put into place to sanatize internet.. If they DIDNT, then the alt media and western media outlets, are seriously gullible..
    I havent found any proof yet, that a few dozen servicemen handed in their resignations when they arrived in Roumania.. (a port call that was already scheduled before the ‘incident’ took place)… Now.. Evidently, I’m seeing these articles.. ‘apres le fait’.. so.. did someone go back and clean up?
    (which would speak volumes about the veracity of the content of the internet)

    We’re talking about a Cold War 2.0, with EM and counter EM measures taking place over conventionnal weapons (certainly in relation to Air Space domination.. found this roadmap lying about…..

    (I see that Joseph has overlooked the mas sive part that a certain rogue Middle East nation – or it’s handlers – had to do with 9/11, so I will add it here…)

    As long as we’re on the tip of the twig today, I have two ‘actors’ to add to the mix:

    First, it could be a rogue AI marking its turf. Electronics are an AI’s forté. This would not have to do with the “USS Donald Cook” incidents, but would with the “Fitzgerald” and the “McCain” incidents. Imagine an AI who is either not happy (so to speak) with the way things are going and wants to make a ‘statement’ or even wishes to ‘tweak’ the way things are going. To the PTB – who would be well-aware of it’s existence – this could be a subtle ‘shot over the bow’…

    Second, it could be for ‘food’. Search on “Robert Monroe loosh” for details. In short, we are ‘cattle’ for higher-dimensional enti ties (hah!) who subsist on the energetic components of negative emotions that WE generate. As intelligent – although negative – beings, they ‘farm’ us for their needs. This includes additional ‘planting’ when the food-source is not sufficient for their current needs. Looking at the “Fitzgerald” and the “McCain” incidents within this lens, this was just another tasty row of ‘carrots’…

    (Further back on the twig, I agree with Joseph that these – the backdoors or such – were immense ‘hole cards’ that would not have been revealed lightly. Unless there are a near-infinite number of additional ‘hole cards’ in the hand…)

    • Sid T on August 30, 2017 at 12:52 am

      What about current President? Either shutting down war temporarily to allow focus on his goals. Or some internal did it to further sterilize his standing in US

  8. Jim Glass on August 29, 2017 at 4:48 pm

    In several books Dr. Farrell references work by Thomas Bearden. In “Oblivion”, Bearden notes the Japanese crime network worked with Soviet scientists to develop scalar weapon technologies. I tend to think the attempt to relate the Cook incidents with the ship ramming cases only works if you assume the incidents expose US vulnerability. Since the US is the implied aggressor those offended are signaling they won’t go down quietly even if the specific aggression differs. In the case of Russia sovereign issues are paramount, while China (if China was involved in ship ramming) appears to have economic concerns above all other. If Japanese organized crime is a player in any events, including the Cuban acoustic attack, there is little doubt the other major variants of global organized crime are not also involved. If so, then Israel cannot be excluded from the usual suspects as they stand to gain from discord among the three major military powers.

  9. T.J. on August 29, 2017 at 2:34 pm

    Joseph et al: Excellent 4-part exposition & analysis, and good ‘conclusions’ based on limited data. However, you may want to expand your 3rd-party ‘Nazi/Fascist International’ hypothesis to include Rotten-Child & Co., given the WW2 “Transfer Agreement” to ‘facilitate’ Euro-Jewish migration to the Mideast, and since post-WW2 Germans/’Nazis’ worked hand-in-glove with Israel & Mossad (e.g., nuke development in South Africa & Otto Skorzeny’s hit man work for Mossad).

    Regarding Trump’s DPRK bluster, China’s ‘solution’ was to declare that China will be neutral if DPRK first attacks South Korea, Japan and/or U.S. — but that China would ‘neutralize’ U.S. threats if U.S. first attacks DPRK. Hmmm…

    Were Trump’s threats so imminent that China needed to show its capabilities to do so (with Fitz & McCain)? If so, did China get such the tech from Russia — or did China independently develop such capabilities? OR did China & Russia act jointly?

    Veterans Today did a widely-read article on the first Donald Cook incident (“AEGIS Fail in Black SEA, Ruskies Burn Down USS Donald ‘Duck'” [“Is this why Keshe was poisoned”]). Iranian expatriate Mehran T. Keshe allegedly developed Electro-Magneto-Gravitic (EMG) defensive capabilities that Russia & Iran supposedly used (e.g., with the Donald Cook, U.S. drone/s downed in Iran & A2AD zones over Syria).

    When Keshe was angling for a U.S. home to develop his tech, China competed to provide Keshe with a home. At ‘my’ event at National Press Club in DC, Keshe indicated that his EMG tech could do stuff like the Fitz & McCain (except that Keshe conditions EMG tech for solely defensive uses). Regardless, many Chinese work with the Keshe Org to help in developing Keshe’s EMG/other tech.

    Above are just a few more data points to add…

    Given the possibility of EM/torsion effects on humans, may we respectfully request a fifth installment? Given that we’re on a record-breaking roll, why stop at four?

  15. OrigensChild on August 29, 2017 at 10:05 am

    I had a feeling we would arrive here. I almost blogged this yesterday as a third, but ignored, suspect on the wall dedicated to this investigation. They have the means, the motive and the opportunity. Joel Skousen believes the next world war will not be fought until both Russia and China are ready and claims the DSA is pushing the conflict. No where in his analysis is there room for this extra territorial state, and this state is ready for the big event because they sense no one is ready. Now that our wall has many of the potential suspects listed comes the difficult part of finding the evidence. If this is the Nazi International we may never see direct evidence publicly, but there may be indirect evidence from another direction.

    The past Japanese/Nazi relationship cannot be discarded in this analysis. At a minimum the Yakuza and Nazi International would probably continue to work together–especially with the Gehlen branch embedded within the Compartmentalize Ignorance Agency. Japan has already demonstrated it’s willingness to negotiate with both China and Russia for opportunities. Each time they do the DSA gets nervous and pitches a geopolitical conniption fit on the global stage, betraying it’s infantile character. After Fukushima, Japan must know who caused and exploited this crisis. I would expect them to act seek alliances with people who they could trust to act as agents for their own type of revenge. Japan was once the major supplier of chips to the US market, only displaced by China in recent years. They are certainly aware of their own back-doors into the hardware of various systems. If they participated in building the high-tech chip industry in China they would also be aware of some of the earlier Chinese exploits as well.

    Having said this one must ask what they might hope to gain if they were to ratchet up pressure directly. As an indirect participant Japan may play a key role. Japan depends on imports of raw materials in order to exist in this phase of the post-modern high-tech industrial economy. The Nazis are a very efficient supplier of raw materials from a world wide network. This type of alliance would be mutually beneficial and expected. In return the Nazi International would require a nation like Japan to mass produce the components for their own technical toys. One might be able to trace these links through monitoring trade agreements.

    • OrigensChild on August 29, 2017 at 10:11 am

      By monitoring trade agreements (contracts, treaties, financial instruments) we have to assume many of these were NOT electronic. You may actually require an analysis of a paper trail. The easiest way to hide financial agreements from the global surveillance grid is to transact the business off the grid!

  16. WalkingDead on August 29, 2017 at 9:58 am

    Add to this speculation the fact that our traitorous Congress just passed warrant less searches.
    Under the new law, your door can be kicked in without warning at any time whatsoever and you can be stormed by police. That’s just perfect for gun confiscation.
    Someone wants the USSA citizenry disarmed. We’ve seen preparations being made since 911 for just that as well as a total surveillance state. A look at history should inform you of what comes quickly after that. Just ask the German, Russian, or Chinese populations; all victims of the largest purges and mass murders in history.
    One might wager that the same extra-territorial actor is behind all of this and we’re next on the list.

  17. DanaThomas on August 29, 2017 at 8:38 am

    The third party option, while excluding actual governments (leaving aside the question of how much control over events ANY governments actually have), could have some connection with Japan, either in the sense of one of their oligarchical factions, or something to do with Japanese-related gold and/or technology – both of which there is quite a lot.

    • goshawks on August 29, 2017 at 6:21 pm

      The Japanese are probably quite aware that Fukushima was a terrible ‘shakedown’ job. I could see the “Fitzgerald” and the “McCain” incidents as simple ‘revenge is better served cold’ repayment…

    The only jinx in the cable of Josephs theory is something the Saker said in a radio interview, namely Russia = Putin. He runs everything from foreign affairs to domestic small problems.

    China, on the other hand, is a bunch of corporations with a strong bright spokesperson being Xi Jinping.

    The point being, taking out Putin today would be catastrophic. China is more resilient to murdering dignitaries.

    If there is a rogue Nazi cabal out in space, they would know that also.

    The Saker interview can be found here, but it takes some resilience to listening too due to translation. None the less worth it.

    The extra-territorial actor is my favorite speculation. But if true, wouldn’t the USA, Russia, and the Chinese be able to pool their intelligence (at least through back channels), put together the pieces, and aim their sights on this alleged perpetrator? Might this not create a great and seemingly unnecessary danger for the extra-territorial actor, unless the cessation of US Navy operations at this time might be mission critical for some dastardly deed yet to come. . .

    • Neru on August 29, 2017 at 7:36 am

      Unless the USA is the weak link and most admissible for reacting strongly. Using brains and restraint isn’t their modus operandi. I don’t see any one, deep state or otherwise, that can think logically and multi layered.

      I consider the USA a dangerous and out of control country most easy to manipulate and isn’t it so, the populous reacts strongly to body bags? A few more of those and the populous might demand action.

      Every dead American is an act of war against an “exceptional” and justified super power but all the civilians killed by the US military, at best, mere casualties for the inevitable freedom that those “exceptional” soldiers supposedly are fighting for.

      The only places that still believe the exceptionality of the USA reside in the EU and USA because they get told that day in and day out.
