TIDBIT: SHIP COLLISIONS AND GPS MEDDLING
And while you're pondering today's main article, ponder this one shared by Mr. R.M.:
Ships fooled in GPS spoofing attack suggest Russian cyberweapon
My problem here, of course, is twofold: (1) why would Russia do this? It has no good reason to do so; and (2) why need it be a cyber weapon? Certainly it could be, but given today's main blog, it might not be.
And, since we're speculating, remember, Russia did not discover this strange "jamming" phenomenon and technology, the Germans did, during World War Two. And that raises the possibility that an extra-territorial actor may also have access to this technology... indeed, they may be using it to "pin the blame on Russia," which, pace Bearden's argument, investigated it since the end of WW2 in very covert projects.

First, “New Scientist” is a sizeable mainstream publication. As such, there is a fair possibility (!) that it is ‘told’ what to say and how to say it. The ‘boogeyman Russia’ slant is Required by those with a One World Order outlook, so nothing new there. The use of the word ‘cyberweapon’ in the ti tle [hah!] indicates either ignorance or yellow journalism. The correct phrase is ‘electronic warfare’, as is used WITHIN the article. My guess is that a spook got to write the ti tle…
GPS-spoofing is old hat. EW experts started research on that as the first GPS satellites went up. USAF got serious about that in the run-up to the first Iraq war. If you are steering a missile off-course, doing the same to a tanker or merchant ship is child’s play. A dozen nations could do it, and even non-state actors. The only serious question is “Why Now?”
Ti tle [hah!]
I made a Ti tanic mistake yesterday.
Got to keep your eye out for
those mammary grammar bot glands.
Good point Goshawks. The way they frame the story is the elephant in the room[taken from George Lakoff’s book].
The biggest frame happened from the orators Buddha, Socrates, Confucius, & Jesus; who did not write anything down. They knew their words would become transformed through the new technology: the written word. Famous Fables & Folk Tales of rebellion against the status quo were magically transformed through the alchemical of the new technology: The Written Word.
Yes, it is an ancient strategy of using the newly discovered technologies; conforming them into tools for the status quo’s frame, to control “The Story” that frames the status-quo’s ruling paradigm

I’ll stop, while I/m behind.
The problem with a mind that connects the dots;
is it connects them, in ways it wants to.

“All wars are banksters wars”; the banksters own the alphabet agencies and most governments. Should there be any doubt about who is behind it? Given the current financial situation world wide, they may be attempting to suck all the remaining profit into their coffers while they can. When you believe you own it all; you can do with it as you please.
They’re now playing-out the proprietary software hidden within the planes, trains, & automobiles. For example, the John Deere company is telling the farmers that they really don’t own those tractors they paid for; the software is proprietary. John Deere is transforming, via the digital age, into a software company. The farmers surprising find they break the law when they fix their broken tractors. Don’t fix your smartphone or I-phone. Matter of fact w/the the iot your leasing everything & owning nothing. Puts an Orwellian double-hex on the word “broke”/meaning doesn’t work/no ownership.
