Yesterday, you'll recall, I blogged about those ship collisions that have been occurring, this time not to American warships and civilian freighters, but to Chinese and Russian ships. While most of the focus has been on the Chinese collision with an Iranian tanker, and with the fact that tankers usually don't suddenly go up in flames just because another ship collides with them, I focused on the collision with the Russian ship of a ship under the flag of Sierra Leon, which collision as reported by RT is at the very least suspicious. I raised the possibility yesterday that we might be looking at a variety of technologies covertly in play:

1) cyber-warfare, via

a) hacking or

b) defective hardware/chips;

2) electromagnetic technologies capable of targeting specific electronic systems remotely and taking them out, or taking them over, remotely (for the UFO cognoscenti out there, think of the Malmstrom AFB incident, and Boeing's ability to reproduce the effect supposedly done by the UFO);

3) Mind control technologies capable of manipulation of the behavior of the crews of the ships

4) global positioning spoofing technologies.

I also advanced two possible scenarios as to who was utilizing one or more of these technologies and doing this and why:

1)  The West and the East(i.e., Russia and China) were doing it to each other in a tit-for-tat covert warfare that appears to have begun around the time of the USS Donald Cook incident; or,

2) A third actor, a non-territorial actor, perhaps a non-state actor(in the conventional sense) was doing it to both sides to manipulate and escalate tensions for its own purposes.

So now consider the recent launch of the Zuma classified US satellite by Elon Musk's SpaceX corporation:

Highly Classified Spy Satellite Is A "Total Loss" After SpaceX Mission Fails

Musk Satellite Mystery Deepens: SpaceX Denies Doing Anything Wrong

Concentrating on the first article, take note of the following paragraphs:

It isn’t clear what job the satellite was intended to perform, or even which U.S. agency contracted for the satellite. As usual for classified launches, the information released by SpaceX before liftoff was bereft of details about the payload. A video broadcast Sunday night narrated by a SpaceX official didn’t provide any hint of problems, though the feed ended before the planned deployment of the satellite.

The WSJ admits that the lack of details about what occurred means that some possible alternate sequence of events other than a failed separation may have been the culprit. And since this is another Musk project/failure, which means the eccentric billionaire will certainly not be tweeting up a storm explaining what went wrong, we may not know the exact reason for the failure for some time.

As of Monday night, nearly 24 hours after the launch, uncertainty surrounded both the mission and the fate of the satellite, the WSJ reports. Notably, the Pentagon’s Strategic Command, which keeps track of all commercial, scientific and national-security satellites along with space debris, hadn’t updated its catalog of objects to reflect a new satellite circling the planet.

Neither Northrop Grumman Corp., which built the satellite, nor SpaceX, as Elon Musk’s space-transportation company is called, has shed light on what happened.

A Northrop Grumman spokesman said, “We cannot comment on classified missions.”

A SpaceX spokesman said: “We do not comment on missions of this nature, but as of right now reviews of the data indicate Falcon 9 performed nominally.” That terminology typically indicates that the rocket’s engines and navigation systems operated without glitches. The spokesman declined to elaborate.

What we do know, is that the secretive spy satellite was worth "billions", which makes this the second billion-dollar satellite Musk has managed to lose up in two years; Facebook’s internet satellite was strapped on top of a Falcon 9 rocket, which it spontaneously blew up on the launch pad in September 2016.

And from the second article, Space X is denying that it did anything wrong:

But the mystery around the launch and the payload continues, as in an emailed statement, company President and COO Gwynne Shotwell, said that the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket that took off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on Sunday "did everything correctly."

“For clarity: after review of all data to date, Falcon 9 did everything correctly on Sunday night. If we or others find otherwise based on further review, we will report it immediately.  Information published that is contrary to this statement is categorically false.

In other words, what Space X is really saying by not saying it, is either that (1) the government or Northrup-Grumman did something wrong with the payload and the loss is their fault; or (2) the loss is no one's fault, but is the result either of deliberate sabotage or an attack. Obviously, for the sake of our high octane speculation, we're going to consider the second possibility. What becomes immediately apparent, once one considers this possibility, is that it fits the wider pattern of speculation about ship collisions and the various technologies that might possibility be behind them. One can at least imagine similar technologies in play both in a sabotage and "attack" scenario against the satellite.

It's the who that is once again the interesting question, and with it, the why. As for who, one can easily imagine a corporate competitor to Musk's SpaceX vying for lucrative government contracts in the billions. Would jeopardizing national security by an attack on a classified multi-billion dollar satellite be of any consequence? Sadly, in today's world, I would have to say no. But I suspect in this case that corporate sabotage might have to take second place to the hypothesis of another state actor, or an extra-territorial non-state actor (in the conventional sense), for I strongly suspect that the object of attack was not Musk's SpaceX corporation and its lucrative launch contracts, but the satellite itself. A multi-billion dollar satellite suggests that it was packed with electronics platforms of a variety of natures, suggesting that it was either a spy satellite, or a weapons platform of some sort, possibly both (the latter disguised as the former). And that suggests in its turn that someone did not want whatever capability that the satellite represented to be deployed, and that suggests - as I have averred- a state actor or non-territorial actor. With respect to the last possibility, one must remember that weapons platforms cum-spy satellites may not necessarily be targeted on anything terrestrial. Such platyforms could so to speak, be designed for "double duty" against both terrestrial and non-terrestrial targets.

What I am suggesting in yesterday's and today's blogs is that we are, perhaps, viewing a massive covert war of some sort taking place just behind the scenes of today's headlines. The real difficulty appears to be deciding just who the combatants are.

See you on the flip side...

    Hi all, what part do you figure the ongoing chemtrail/geoengineering activity plays in all this?

  2. Maggan on January 14, 2018 at 10:39 pm

    Oh heck, face it… it’s the aliens that did not let this satellite take off. Of course govt. has to spin all kinds of language to make them sound smart & efficient, but the aliens are the ones to cause this failed launch. Maybe too much space junk floating around up there anyway for their liking.

      The word “alien” can mean many things. A parasitic intrusion into a healthy body. A subversive takeover of a country. A propaganda meme in information warfare. A unknown factor in a system. A pre-civilization influence. A spooky part of a ghost story.

      There are multiple layers to all thinking. A branch on a tree, that is alienated to another branch, would be unknown to the fact, that they are both rooted on the same tree. The structural retrieval of origin is tracking the source.

      Point is, that nothing is what is seems, and mind is an open window into insights that are hidden. It is basically Sherlock Holmes smoking cigars.

    To throw “spying rocks” into space, does not change the fact, that papacy is now falling short, into its own memory hole.

    Today, the Runes are being reclaimed, and geopolitical shift from Rome to Britain will gradually take place, in the millennia struggle.

    The Runes are original Christianity and Druid ABC. Geopolitically, they hold square-footed and rock-steady position in the Pyramid.

    A few ‘incidents’ for background:

    Back in 2008, the USS Lake Erie used a Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) interceptor missile to destroy a big classified payload (NRO launch 21) in orbit that had malfunctioned shortly after deployment. (While PR spun that the destruction was for our safety, the likely reality is that the NRO did not want to risk anything ‘classified’ reaching the ground intact.)
    en.wikipedia dot org/wiki/Operation_Burnt_Frost

    Back in 2016, SpaceX had a Falcon 9 explode on the pad during fueling exercises. Some may remember the ‘flap’ when pad cameras caught a swift object firing a beam into the rocket. The payload was a communications satellite which would (public reason) have been used by Facebook as part of its effort to extend internet access in Africa. As Facebook has been outed as an intelligence-collection ploy, the true ‘users’ of this satellite were likely CIA/NRO/DIA/LBJ…

    mirror dot co dot uk/news/weird-news/conspiracy-theorists-claim-footage-proof-8762665

    Back in 1964, there was a missile allegedly destroyed in-flight after launch by a UFO as described by USAF cameraman Robert Jacobs.
    ufology dot wikia dot com/wiki/Robert_Jacobs

    And now, the Falcon 9 functioned correctly, but the “Zuma” classified payload failed-to-deploy in some manner.

    As I connect the dots, Someone is taking-out ‘intelligence’ payloads in a plausible deniability manner. My guess sways to the ‘visitor’ side, but who knows?

  5. Roger on January 14, 2018 at 6:22 pm

    Reminds one of space junk that is not space junk. Does the others side now have pseudo space junk! Or worse, does NK now have space junk bigger than Donalds!

  6. Roger on January 14, 2018 at 6:09 pm

    I suspect the world has an invisible fleet of high altitude stealth drones equipped with not only above high tech spy ware but also secret energy weapons. Probably vacuum lifted craft that absorb energy from the sun and ionosphere and never have to land. Terrors to the Russian, Chinese, and North Korean launch pads but now does the other side now have their own fleet?

  7. marcos toledo on January 14, 2018 at 2:35 pm

    Boy if only Ian Fleming was around today he would really sink his teeth into this issue in one of his James Bond novels. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction it has was and is.

  8. Robert Barricklow on January 14, 2018 at 12:00 pm

    I’m inclined to put my bets on the Nazi International. Somewhere, or all along the launch pipeline; they were keeping abreast of the ongoing strengthening of certain private interests, that were counter to their own.
    Either way, various private powers and their private mercenaries are making digitized ink[although A.I. framed, and/or with human spin].
    I wonder if public power is even getting billing anymore; other than the private concerns given to support illusions of self governance? After all, one needs the public side of the ledger to socialize the costs for those private profit$. Satellites are expensive, after all.

  9. Robert Barricklow on January 14, 2018 at 11:48 am

    If, indeed, this was the “real” launch and not a decoy.
    Or, if they already launched it years ago, and this is just another red herring.
    Because, I’m getting to the point where even square one is suspect; especially when it comes to digitized information, via the normal distribution routes.

  10. Aridzonan_13 on January 14, 2018 at 11:13 am

    My term for the Non-State element has always been SPECTRE. I do believe Ian Fleming was attempting to warn us in his Bond series. IMHO BCCI of 90’s fame morphed into a SPECTRE class organization and possibly has a foothold on the S. Pole and possible space.. If there is now in your face warfare occurring i.e. Vegas shootings, CA fires / floods and now disappearing satellites. Then what other hostilities can we expect? Are any of the combatants better than the other? My analogy has always been Corleones vs. the Barzinis vs the Gambinos, etc… No matter what side wins it’s still Organized Crime.. Sometimes, I feel as though I’m living in Britain at the end of the Roman Empire and corruption is the business plan..

      “Contact restored with Angosat-1 after post-launch blackout
      Posted: Sun, Dec 31, 2017, 9:30 AM ET (1430 GMT)
      Zenit launch of Angosat-1, Dec 2017 (Roscosmos) Controllers have restored contact with the Angosat-1 communications satellite, which was unresponsive for a day after its launch Tuesday. A Zenit rocket launched the satellite from the Baikonur Cosmodrome at 2:00 pm EST (1900 GMT) Tuesday and released the Russian-built satellite into geostationary transfer orbit about nine hours later. However, controllers were unable to maintain contact with the satellite shortly after its deployment, restoring communications only on Thursday. Russian sources suspect a battery issue on the satellite may have caused the loss of communications. The satellite, built by RSC Energia for the government of Angola, carries 16 C-band and 6 Ku-band transponders and will operate from 13 degrees east.“

  11. Helden Spirit on January 14, 2018 at 8:40 am

    Maybe we should consider the scenario that the the failed billion-dollar satellite did not fail but that it was ‘taken control of’, remotely hacked and commandeered. In the recent massive drone attack on the Russian base in Syria, I think just as many drones were commandeered/taken control over and safely landed as were shot down.

    So the Russians now have the latest USSA/Israel space weapons in their hands?!!!

    • Robert Barricklow on January 14, 2018 at 12:13 pm

      Good point.
      In a Wi-Fi matrix…
      whose ultimately in control?

  12. basta on January 14, 2018 at 7:57 am

    Of course you have to take the Pentagram’s word for it that the spy satellite didn’t reach orbit. Space X says nothing went wrong on their end. Maybe nothing did.

  13. DanaThomas on January 14, 2018 at 6:16 am

    And what about all those sightings – with and sometimes without night visor equipment – of what look like some kind of battles in the sky. The space lanes between here and the Moon seem to have a LOT of traffic.
