Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia told a group of law students that it might be a good idea to revolt if taxes become too high in the future.

While speaking at the University of Tennessee College of Law on Tuesday, Justice Scalia was asked by a student about his interpretation of the constitutionality of the income tax, the Knoxville News Sentinel reported


The longest-serving justice currently on the bench answered the student by saying that the government has the constitutional right to implement the tax, “but if it reaches a certain point, perhaps you should revolt.”
Justice Scalia continued to tell the students that they have every right to express criticism of the government.
“You’re entitled to criticize the government, and you can use words, you can use symbols, you can use telegraph, you can use Morse code, you can burn a flag,” he said, according to the News Sentinel.
The Justice was invited to deliver the annual “Rose Lecture” and the Tennessee law school. He discussed pivotal events in his time in the Supreme Court including the decision in 1989 to rule that flag-burning was constitutionally protected speech.
President Ronald Reagan appointed Justice Scalia to the Supreme Court in 1986.
He told the law students that the justices do not give credence to partisan politics, and that he doesn’t care which party controls the White House. He stands by a theory of originalism, meaning that the Constitution is a fixed law and not open to change or interpretation over time.


“The Constitution is not a living organism for Pete’s sake,” he said. “It’s a law. It means what it meant when it was adopted.”

More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds.
“It’s simply time,” said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. “The urgency is now.”



At the end of the day , are the Banksters the true force of ultimate evil ? 


Bankers are Behind the Wars

George Washington's picture

Former managing director of Goldman Sachs – and head of the international analytics group at Bear Stearns in London (Nomi Prins) -  notes:
Throughout the century that I examined, which began with the Panic of 1907 … what I found by accessing the archives of each president is that through many events and periods, particular bankers were in constant communication [with the White House] — not just about financial and economic policy, and by extension trade policy, but also about aspects of World War I, or World War II, or the Cold War, in terms of the expansion that America was undergoing as a superpower in the world, politically, buoyed by the financial expansion of the banking community.

***

In the beginning of World War I, Woodrow Wilson had adopted initially a policy of neutrality. But the Morgan Bank, which was the most powerful bank at the time, andwhich wound up funding over 75 percent of the financing for the allied forces during World War I … pushed Wilson out of neutrality sooner than he might have done, because of their desire to be involved on one side of the war.

Now, on the other side of that war, for example, was theNational City Bank, which, though they worked with Morgan in financing the French and the British, they also didn’t have a problem working with financing some things on the German side, as did Chase …

When Eisenhower became president … the U.S. was undergoing this expansion by providing, under his doctrine, military aid and support to countries [under] the so-called threat of being taken over by communism … What bankers did was they opened up hubs, in areas such as Cuba, in areas such as Beirut and Lebanon, where the U.S. also wanted to gain a stronghold in their Cold War fight against the Soviet Union. And so the juxtaposition of finance and foreign policy were very much aligned.

So in the ‘70s, it became less aligned, because though America was pursuing foreign policy initiatives in terms of expansion, the bankers found oil, and they made an extreme effort to activate relationships in the Middle East, that then the U.S. government followedFor example, in Saudi Arabia and so forth, they get access to oil money, and then recycle it into Latin American debt and other forms of lending throughout the globe. So that situationled the U.S. government.
Indeed, JP Morgan also purchased control over America’s leading 25 newspapers in order to propagandize US public opinion in favor of US entry into World War 1.
And many big banks did, in fact, fund the Nazis.
The BBC reported in 1998:
Barclays Bank has agreed to pay $3.6m to Jews whose assets were seized from French branches of the British-based bank during World War II.

***

Chase Manhattan Bank, which has acknowledged seizing about 100 accounts held by Jews in its Paris branch during World War II ….”Recently unclassified reports from the US Treasury about the activities of Chase in Paris in the 1940s indicate that the local branch worked “in close collaboration with the German authorities” in freezing Jewish assets.
The New York Daily News noted the same year:
The relationship between Chase and the Nazis apparently was so cozy that Carlos Niedermann, the Chase branch chief in Paris, wrote his supervisor in Manhattan thatthe bank enjoyed “very special esteem” with top German officials and “a rapid expansion of deposits,” according to Newsweek.

Niedermann’s letter was written in May 1942 five months after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor and the U.S. also went to war with Germany.
The BBC reported in 1999:
A French government commission, investigating the seizure of Jewish bank accounts during the Second World War, says five American banks Chase Manhattan, J.P Morgan, Guaranty Trust Co. of New York, Bank of the City of New York and American Express had taken part.

It says their Paris branches handed over to the Nazi occupiers about one-hundred such accounts.
One of Britain’s main newspapers – the Guardian – reported in 2004:
George Bush’s grandfather [and George H.W. Bush's father], the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.

The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.

His business dealings … continued until his company’s assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act

***

The documents reveal that the firm he worked for, Brown Brothers Harriman (BBH), acted as a US base for the German industrialist, Fritz Thyssen, who helped finance Hitler in the 1930s before falling out with him at the end of the decade. The Guardian has seen evidence that shows Bush was the director of the New York-based Union Banking Corporation (UBC) that represented Thyssen’s US interests and he continued to work for the bank after America entered the war.

***

Bush was a founding member of the bank [UBC] … The bank was set up by Harriman and Bush’s father-in-law to provide a US bank for the Thyssens, Germany’s most powerful industrial family.

***

By the late 1930s, Brown Brothers Harriman, which claimed to be the world’s largest private investment bank, and UBC had bought and shipped millions of dollars of gold, fuel, steel, coal and US treasury bonds to Germany, both feeding and financing Hitler’s build-up to war.

Between 1931 and 1933 UBC bought more than $8m worth of gold, of which $3m was shipped abroad. According to documents seen by the Guardian, after UBC was set up it transferred $2m to BBH accounts and between 1924 and 1940 the assets of UBC hovered around $3m, dropping to $1m only on a few occasions.

***

UBC was caught red-handed operating a American shell company for the Thyssen family eight months after America had entered the war and that this was the bank that had partly financed Hitler’s rise to power.
Indeed, banks often finance both sides of wars:

(The San Francisco Chronicle also documents that leading financiersRockefeller, Carnegie and Harriman also funded Nazi eugenics programs … but that’s a story for another day.)
The Federal Reserve and other central banks also help to start wars by financing them.  Thomas Jefferson and the father of free market capitalism, Adam Smith, both noted that the financing wars by banks led to more – and longer – wars.
Multi-billionaire investor Hugo Salinas Price says:
What happened to [Libya's] Mr. Gaddafi, many speculate the real reason he was ousted was that he was planning an all-African currency for conducting tradeThe same thing happened to him that happened to Saddam because the US doesn’t want any solid competing currency out there vs the dollar. You know Gaddafi was talking about a gold dinar.
Senior CNBC editor John Carney noted:
Is this the first time a revolutionary group has created a central bank while it is still in the midst of fighting the entrenched political power? It certainly seems to indicate how extraordinarily powerful central bankers have become in our era.

Robert Wenzel of Economic Policy Journal thinks the central banking initiative reveals that foreign powers may have a strong influence over the rebels.

This suggests we have a bit more than a ragtag bunch of rebels running around and that there are some pretty sophisticated influences. “I have never before heard of a central bank being created in just a matter of weeks out of a popular uprising,” Wenzel writes.
Indeed, many claim that recent wars have really been about bringing all countriesinto the fold of Western central banking, and that the wars against Middle Eastern countries are really about forcing them into the dollar and private central banking.
The most decorated American military man in history said that war is a racket, andnoted:
Let us not forget the bankers who financed the great war. If anyone had the cream of the profits it was the bankers.
The big banks have also been laundering money for terrorists. The big bank employee who blew the whistle on the banks’ money laundering for terrorists and drug cartels says that the giant bank is still aiding terrorists, saying:
The public needs to know that money is still being funneled through HSBC to directly buy guns and bullets to kill our soldiers …. Banks financing … terrorists affects every single American.
He also said:
It is disgusting that our banks are STILL financing terror on 9/11 2013.
And see this.
According to the BBC and other sources, Prescott Bush, JP Morgan and other leading financiers also funded a coup against President Franklin Roosevelt in an attempt – basically – to implement fascism in the U.S. See thisthisthis and this.
Kevin Zeese writes:
Americans are recognizing the link between the military-industrial complex and the Wall Street oligarchs—a connection that goes back to the beginning of the modern U.S. empire. Banks have always profited from warbecause the debt created by banks results in ongoing war profit for big finance; and because wars have been used to open countries to U.S. corporate and banking interests. Secretary of State, William Jennings Bryan wrote: “the large banking interests were deeply interested in the world war because of the wide opportunities for large profits.”

Many historians now recognize that a hidden history for U.S. entry into World War I was to protect U.S. investors. U.S. commercial interests had invested heavily in European allies before the war: “By 1915, American neutrality was being criticized as bankers and merchants began to loan money and offer credits to the warring parties, although the Central Powers received far less. Between 1915 and April 1917, the Allies received 85 times the amount loaned to Germany.” The total dollars loaned to all Allied borrowers during this period was $2,581,300,000. The bankers saw that if Germany won, their loans to European allies would not be repaid. The leading U.S. banker of the era, J.P. Morgan and his associates did everything they could to push the United States into the waron the side of England and France. Morgan said: “We agreed that we should do all that was lawfully in our power to help the Allies win the war as soon as possible.” President Woodrow Wilson, who campaigned saying he would keep the United States out of war, seems to have entered the war to protect U.S. banks’ investments in Europe.

The most decorated Marine in history, Smedley Butler, described fighting for U.S. banks in many of the wars he fought in. He said: “I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”

In Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, John Perkins describes how World Bank and IMF loans are used to generate profits for U.S. business and saddle countries with huge debts that allow the United States to control them. It is not surprising that former civilian military leaders like Robert McNamara and Paul Wolfowitz went on to head the World Bank. These nations’ debt to international banks ensures they are controlled by the United States, which pressures them into joining the “coalition of the willing” that helped invade Iraq or allowing U.S. military bases on their land. If countries refuse to “honor” their debts, the CIA or Department of Defense enforces U.S. political will through coups or military action.

The MH370 Abductees Search ‘Smokescreen’

Saturday, April 19, 2014 9:57































Five weeks into the Search and Rescue mission for 239 kidnapped or rendered passengers of what officials have said is a hijacked Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and over $30 million spent chasing pings, plastic bags and other irrelevant so-called clues in the southern Indian Ocean have been little more than a dog and pony show, a know-nothing media chorus extravaganza. 

The Malay government has said that MH370 was hijacked, either remotely or pre-programmed to fly off of its flight path to Beijing, as reported Friday by CBS News. If correct, 239 passengers were either kidnapped or rendered. The issue at hand is whether officials and the public need to face facts about “smokescreen pings,” as experts describe below, and a cyber war in the U.S.-led “war on terror” with a hallmark of secretly rendering persons of interest and detaining them in black sites.

239 MH370 passengers kidnapped or rendered?

In criminal law, kidnapping is taking away or transporting a person against that person’s will, usually to hold the person in false imprisonment, a confinement without legal authority. This may be done for ransom or in furtherance of another crime.

In today’s U.S. so-called “war on terror”, it claims global authority for the CIA to illegally kidnap or “render” any individual anywhere in the world and take that person to another country against their will. While this illegal practice began under President George W Bush, President Obama has maintained it.
“Under executive orders issued by Obama, the CIA still has authority to carry out what are known as renditions, secret abductions and transfers of prisoners to countries that cooperate with the United States. 
“Current and former U.S. intelligence officials said that the rendition program might be poised to play an expanded role going forward because it was the main remaining mechanism — aside from Predator missile strikes — for taking suspected terrorists off the street. – LA Times

Extraordinary rendition or irregular rendition is apprehension and extrajudicial transfer of a person from one country to another. During the U.S. ”war on terror” under President George W. Bush, the term became associated with US practices of abducting and transferring “terrorism suspects” to countries known to employ torture for interrogating. The process has continued under President Barack Obama, although new rules claim to prevent torture of abducted individuals. In August 2009, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder accepted results of the Special Task Force on Interrogations and Transfer Policies: the U.S. will be limited to seek “assurances from the receiving country” as such.


Dog and pony show coming to en end

Finally, officials have largely ruled out a fire causing the plane to go missing. As independent researchers have argued for weeks, officials now says a fire severe enough to disable pilots or cause various systems on the jet to go haywire, for instance, almost certainly wouldn’t allow a big jet to keep cruising for hours without compromising the structure or additional critical aircraft systems. 

No physical evidence exists as the result of the MH370 Search and Rescue (SAR) TV drama. 

Officials have said since week one of the MH370 humanitarian crisis that the jetliner was hijacked, probably remotely, like a smart plane or a drone. Now, U.S. investigators reportedly increasingly suspect whoever hijacked MH370 programmed its flight-control computer to guide the plane through a series of predetermined navigational points, and the route was keyed in before the jet disappeared from radar, two unnamed people briefed on the probe now say, according to WSJ.

Now, officials increasingly concur the hijacker pre-programmed the flight path, before the plane departed Kuala Lumpur. One interesting related fact is that the flight had an unexplained last minute gate change, never accounted for by officials.

Only two publicly available pieces of evidence exist that link the jetliner to the southern Indian Ocean where officials determined the focus of the SAR needed to be conducted: Inmarsat data, that experts agree was nothing more than a “smokescreen,” and the Maldives islanders’ eyewitness accounts, that officials simply dismissed. Nevertheless, a conclusion based on the UK’s Inmarsat led to abandoning all earlier search areas, and concentrating all efforts on the Australian-led area

Inmarsat Smokescreen

A Malaysian government report dated March 25 described a new analysis by the U.K.-based satellite operator Inmarsat PLC. It showed Inmarsat had developed an “innovative technique” to establish that the plane probably headed south after “vanishing.” Independent experts who analyzed that report, however, said it is riddled with inconsistencies. Even worse, those experts say data that the report presents to justify its conclusion of a crash in the Indian Ocean appear to have been fudged.

The UK-based Inmarsat has a history of not aiding humanitarian search and rescue missions of individuals deemed terror suspects or non-combatant enemies of the U.S. who were rendered to or through Diego Garcia for “enhanced interrogation” (torture). In fact, the UK involvement in the US kidnapping, detaining in secret black sites and torturing has been “beyond complicity.” [New Chilling MH370 Diego Garcia Links, April 12, 2014) Yet the entire Indian Ocean SAR focus has been dependent on the UK's Inmarsat.

Background

 The New York Times has cited two anonymous U.S. officials saying that MH370's first turn was not made by someone manually overriding Flight 370's flight computer by grabbing the controls, but rather by someone with sufficient knowledge of the aircraft to change the destination in that computer. The process to change the Boeing 777's destination only involves "seven or eight keystrokes" and implies someone with a working knowledge of the aircraft was in the cockpit to make the change, either just before or after take-off. US officials report that the change could have been pre-programmed into the computer, implying it could have been done without the pilot ever knowing it had happened, as any targeted individual knows can happen with computers. 

People (unnamed) briefed on the probe said investigators suspected the plane's initial turn to the west was programmed manually using the flight computer, but they now believe the rest of the route through the strait also might have been executed the same way.

During the first few days after MH370 "disappeared," (except perhaps the U.S. military, the Central Intelligence Agency and possibly other nations' military forces) supposedly no one had any idea what happened to the jetliner after it left Malaysian radar coverage around 2:30 a.m. local time on March 8. Malaysia Airlines (MAS) did not issue a media statement about the crisis until 07:24, one hour after the Boeing was scheduled to arrive in Beijing. The statement was that contact with the flight had been lost by Malaysian ATC at 02:40.

Later, it emerged that Subang Air Traffic Control lost contact with the jetliner at 01:22, but failed to notify Malaysia Airlines until 02:40. Neither crew nor the onboard communication systems relayed a distress signal, indications of bad weather, or technical problems before the aircraft "vanished from radar screens."

On 11 March, Inmarsat gave a partner company its data analysis and other documents indicating the plane was nowhere near either side of Malaysia, where more countries and ships had been searching three days since the plane disappeared. That information was relayed to Malaysian officials by Wednesday, March 12. Inmarsat shared the same information with British security and air-safety officials on Wednesday, according to two people briefed on the investigation. (Wall Street Journal) Four days passed before the SAR team officials allowed Malaysian government to provide satellite data showing Flight 370 flew several hours away from the original search area.  

Disclosures about how that information made its way into the investigation "underline how international efforts to find the plane have been repeatedly marred by distrust among the countries involved," WSJ reported, without naming countries. According to the Malaysian government, its hands were tied: It was not to make any public statement without all key leaders involved in the SAR concurring.

Inmarsat documents included a map showing two divergent north and south corridors for the plane's route stretching some 3,000 miles from the plane's last previously known location. New Scientist reported that, before the aircraft's disappearance, two Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) reports were automatically issued to engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce's monitoring centre in the United Kingdom, and The Wall Street Journal, citing US government sources, asserted that Rolls-Royce received an aircraft health report every thirty minutes for five hours, implying the aircraft remained aloft for four hours after its transponder went offline.

The next day, Hishamuddin Hussein, acting Minister of Transport, refuted details The Wall Street Journal had reported. He asserted that the final engine transmission was at 01:07 MYT, before the flight's disappearance from secondary radar. The WSJ then amended its report and stated the belief of continued flight was "based on analysis of signals sent by the Boeing 777's satellite-communication link... the link operated in a kind of standby mode and sought to establish contact with a satellite or satellites. These transmissions did not include data..."

Inmarsat said on March 14 that "routine, automated signals were registered" on its network, and analysis of "keep-alive message[s]” that continued to be sent after air traffic control first lost contact could help pinpoint the aircraft’s location.  Inmarsat did not provide its information directly to the Malaysia government, Instead, it provided its information to a corporation that in turn, gave it to the Malaysia government.

“This information was provided to our partner SITA, which in turn has shared it with Malaysia Airlines,” Inmarsat stated in a written statement on the 14th. SITA, originally known as Société Internationale de Télécommunications Aéronautiques, is a multinational information technology corporation that specializes in providing IT and telecommunication services to the air transport industry – for a fee. SITA is owned by members of the air transport industry, who make up the SITA Board and SITA Council. 

““Constant mobile innovation promises to reshape the entire passenger journey,” says Allison ONeill, VP of Passenger Solutions at SITA.

“In the latest issue of Air Transport IT Review see why all eyes are fixed on mobility to provide better service for today’s travelers,” SITA boasts on its website.
A week passed before Inmarsat reported its engineers noticing that in the hours after the Boeing 777 disappeared, it continued exchanging data-less electronic handshakes, or “pings,” with a geostationary satellite over the Indian Ocean – eight pings in total.

“Each ping conveyed only a tiny amount of data: the time it was received, the distance the airplane was from the satellite at that instant, and the relative velocity between the airplane and the satellite,” explains Jeff Wise of Slate. “Taken together, these tiny pieces of information made it possible to narrow the range of possible routes that the plane might have taken.”

If the plane was presumed to have traveled south at a steady 450 knots, for instance, Inmarsat could trace a curving route that wound up deep in the Indian Ocean southwest of Perth, Australia, according to Wise. Based on Inmarsat data, ships and planes began scouring that part of the ocean. Each time satellite imagery revealed a scattering of pollution and debris in the area, media declared it “Breaking News”; officials said it was ”new and credible information”; and then it was declared another false lead – making for an extended TV “news” performance sham.

Australia’s Prime Minister Tony Abbott even declared in front of parliament that the latest satellite imagery represented “new and credible information” about the fate of the airplane.

Ping data “ambiguous’ at best

“Given a presumed starting point, any reconstructed route could have headed off in either direction,” Wise says. “A plane following the speed and heading to arrive at the southern search area could have also headed to the north and wound up in Kazakhstan. Why, then, were investigators scouring the south and not the north?”



According to the March 25 report, Inmarsat used a new kind of mathematical analysis to rule out a northern route.



“Without being very precise in its description, it implied that the analysis might have depended on a small but telling wobble of the Inmarsat satellite’s orbit,” Wise says.


“There simply isn’t enough information in the report to reconstruct the original data,” says Scott Morgan, the former commander of the US Air Force Rescue Coordination Center. “We don’t know what their assumptions are going into this.”

Mike Exner, CEO of the remote sensing company Radiometrics Inc. also tried to understand the report.

“He mathematically processed the ‘Burst Frequency Offset’ values on Page 2 of Annex 1 and was able to derive figures for relative velocity between the aircraft and the satellite,” according to Wise. No matter how he tried, however, he could not get his values to match those implied by the possible routes shown on Page 3 of the annex.

“They look like cartoons to me,” says Exner, what the late Matthew Simmons called a sham when describing the search for the well spewing crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico from BP’s oil catastrophe four years ago almost to the day. 
“Even more significantly, I haven’t found anybody who has independently analyzed the Inmarsat report and has been able to figure out what kind of northern route could yield the values shown on Page 2 of the annex,” Exner said. 
Accompanying the written report was an appendixAnnex I, that consists of three diagrams, the second titled MH370 measured data against predicted tracks. This second one appears to summarize the case against the northern route in what Wise calls “one compelling image.”

One line on the graph showed the predicted Doppler shift for a plane traveling a northern route. A second line showed the predicted Doppler shift for a plane flying a southern route. A third line showed actual data received by Inmarsat. The third line matched the southern route almost perfectly, and looked markedly different from the northern route. Case closed. No more interviewing passengers’ families. No more telling the public about the Maldives islanders’ reports. No mention about the US withholding concrete evidence – CIA radar data from Diego Garcia or Pine Gap in Australia.

The report failed to explicitly enumerate the three data points for each ping. Nevertheless, around the world, enthusiasts from various disciplines “threw themselves into reverse-engineering that original data out of the charts and diagrams in the report,” Wise says. “With this information in hand, they believed, it would be possible to construct any number of possible routes and check the assertion that the plane must have flown to the south.”





























































































It was soon clear that Inmarsat had presented its data in a way that made the SAR goal impossible. It furthered a wild goose chase for a jetliner that officials say was remotely hijacked and independent experts say neither disappeared nor crashed. 

According to the March 25 report, “Inmarsat teased out the small differences predicted to exist between the Doppler shift values between the northern and southern routes,” Wise said. “This difference, presumably caused by the slight wobble in the satellite’s orbit that I mentioned above, should be tiny—according to Exner’s analysis, no more than a few percent of the total velocity value. And yet Page 2 of the annex shows a radically different set of values between the northern and southern routes.”

Exner said, “Neither the northern or southern predicted routes make any sense.” 

Dance of Deliberate Deception


“Given the discrepancies and inaccuracies, it has proven impossible for independent observers to validate Inmarsat’s assertion that it can rule out a northern route for the airplane,” Wise says.

Hans Kruse, a professor of telecommunications systems at Ohio University, said, “It’s really impossible to reproduce what the Inmarsat folks claim. Inmarsat’s work has been presented to the public by authorities whose inconsistency and lack of transparency have time and again undermined public confidence. 


“It’s worrying that the report appears to have been composed in such a way as to make it impossible for anyone to independently assess its validity—especially given that its ostensible purpose was to explain to the world Inmarsat’s momentous conclusions. What frustrated, grieving family members need from the authorities is clarity and trustworthiness, not a smokescreen.”

Inmarsat has failed to reply to Wise’s request for clarification of their methods.

The Wall Street Journal reported this week that in recent days, experts “recalibrated data” in part by using “arcane new calculations reflecting changes in the operating temperatures of an Inmarsat satellite as well as the communications equipment aboard the Boeing when the two systems exchanged so-called digital handshakes.”

But again, as Wise says, simply not enough information exists for the public to assess validity of these methods.

“It would be nice if Inmarsat would throw open its spreadsheets and help resolve the issue right now, but that could be too much to expect,” asserts Wise.

Inmarsat might be bound by confidentiality agreements with customers, not to mention U.S. laws that restrict releasing information about “sensitive technologies” and “threat to national security,” the standard excuse the U.S. gives for withholding information that would be in best interest of the public – humanity. Anything that stands in the way or challenges the Pentagon’s Full Spectrum Dominance goal, that is control of everything and every one on the planet and in space – is a threat to “national security.” Furthermore, anyone threatening U.S. national security is subject to kidnapping, rendering, and detaining in a secret black site.

That Malaysian authorities can release what they want to the public is a fallacy. The Malay government has been dependent on major U.S. agencies for intel and has indicated that others providing intel have not been transparent, and its SAR team (including mainly U.S.-based agencies) had to each agree to any statement before it could be made publicly regarding the SAR.

After the SAR team’s long resisting pressure to release the air traffic control transcript, it relented. Acting transport minister Hishammuddin Hussein says if and when the black boxes are found, their data will be released to the public – but others say that chase is simply part of the smokescreen.



With the search for surface debris winding down, to Wise and much of the rest of the world, the mystery of MH370 is looking more impenetrable by the moment. In actuality, progressive experts reporting on the mystery MH370 never thought that the debris search would reveal anything but a plethora of evidence that it was nothing more than an expensive media performance – as was the capping of Deepwater Horizon’ Macondo Prospect well, that was actually a media dog and pony show that revealed not the real well spewing, but another one that was leaking far less than the genuine problematic well.  



Wise says if the effort to find the plane using an underwater robot proves fruitless, (predictably) there should be a long and sustained call for the Malaysian authorities to reveal their data and explain exactly how they came to their conclusions.


“Because at that point, it will be all we’ve got,” Wise says.

In reality, however, each member of the SAR team led by the Malaysia government needs to disclose how they came to their conclusions. They also need to be held accountable for a wild goose chase amid a humanitarian crisis involving 239 kidnapped passengers of a hijacked plane remaining hidden, incommunicado, more than likely at one of dozens of the CIA’s black sites. 

In reality, the CIA runs a global apprehension and incarceration operation of suspected terrorists, known as “extraordinary rendition.”
A report released in February 2013 by the Open Society Justice Initiative titled Globalizing Torture: CIA Secret Detention and Extraordinary Rendition established that the Central Intelligence Agency, acting under direction of the highest levels of the US government, used a global network of secret prisons, foreign intelligence agents, and interrogation and torture centers to send detainees to without any legal protections. This arrangement is worldwide and includes the involvement of at least 54 different countries touching almost every continent.


As long as the CIA and its co-conspirators conducts this illegal, inhumane program, it is the prime suspect of missing persons of interest, including 239 MH370 passengers, 30 of whom were high-tech experts, people of interest to the U.S.



Journalists, civil and constitutional rights groups, and former detainees have alleged that rendered missing persons were tortured with knowledge or cooperation of both the United States and the United Kingdom.
While the Obama administration distanced itself from some of the harshest counter-terrorism techniques, it also said that “at least some forms of renditions will continue,” according to Los Angeles Times.
Is the MH370 operation one of those “rendition forms”?




What the heck was Darlene Tipton up to ????

FOX EXECUTIVE FIRED OVER FLIGHT 370 CHARITY EMAIL




( The issue  , in my humble opinion , isn't why she and her husband decided to set up a fund to give aid to victims of Flight 370 ? Why did she require those aid  recipients to waive the right to sue ? Who the hell is she  or who did she think she was to put the major limitation as a deal breaker condition ? By the way , I think Fox was absolutely correct to fire her ! Kudos to them ! ) 




NEW YORK (AP) -- A veteran Fox executive who used her company email account to plan aid for loved ones of the missing Malaysian airplane's passengers has been fired.

Darlene Tipton, who was vice president of standards and practices for the Fox Cable Networks Group, said Saturday she had wanted to arrange swift financial aid to families and other loved ones, sparing them lengthy court fights. She said she began by emailing Sarah Bajc, an American whose boyfriend, Philip Wood, was a passenger on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and who has made frequent TV appearances since the plane's March 8 disappearance.

Fox spokesman Scott Grogin said Tipton's "conduct and communications" violated company policy. Citing privacy concerns, he declined to discuss particulars, but he said, "As soon as we became aware, we took appropriate steps." He confirmed that Tipton has left the company.




Tipton was with Fox for a quarter-century before her April 9 dismissal. She said she plans to continue with her initiative, soliciting contributions through the crowdfunding website GoFundMe.

"We want to raise money for families, to give them immediate relief," Tipton said during a phone interview from her Los Angeles home. "Otherwise, they could be in court for years."

A condition of accepting the money she hopes to raise: Recipients must waive the right to seek legal remedy.

"If they're getting money through contributions," she said, "it isn't right for them to seek money through legal channels, too."

But she plans to sue Fox for wrongful termination, said her husband, Ken Tipton, a writer and producer.
He said the idea for the fundraising effort stemmed from his Los Angeles hospital stay last month, shortly after the plane disappeared. He said that while he was under medication he had hallucinations of being with the plane's passengers and the power of his visions spurred him and his wife to try to help.
"She wanted to do it because it could be done," he said. "So why not try?"

The investigation into what happened to Flight 370, a Boeing 777 that was en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board, continued Saturday with searches of a patch of the Indian Ocean seabed.

Tipton's firing was first reported by Christine Negroni in her blog Flying Lessons.

Darlene Tipton, vice president of standards and practices at Fox, toldSarah Bajc that she and her husband Ken Tipton could potentially raise $15 million for Wood's immediate family and asked if Bajc thought other family members would be interested in such a plan.

Bajc and Wood
Bajc, who has made regular appearances on a number of television networks since the flight went missing on March 8th, suspected a scam and sent the email to Fox, leading to Tipton's dismissal on April 10.






Harry Reid losing his mind over the idea someone would dare stand up to tyranny .....



Sen Reid: Backers of Rancher Are ‘Domestic Terrorists’

Blasts Rancher as 'Thumbing His Nose at Authority'

by Jason Ditz, April 18, 2014
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D – NV) angrily condemned protesters who came out in support of Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy today, dubbing them “domestic terrorists” for supporting Bundy.
Reid insisted Bundy “thumbs his nose at authority” and doesn’t recognize the US government, saying it was an issue the US would never let go. He held his biggest criticism back for the protesters, however.
If there were ever an example of people who were domestic violent terrorist wannabes, these are the guys,” Reid said of the protesters, saying they showed up with guns to protest the seizure of Bundy’s cattle.
Reid’s comments earned some angry criticism from other lawmakers, including Sen. Dean Heller (R – NV), who said the protesters included veterans and boy scouts, and that he considers them “patriots,” not terrorists, for standing up to the government.
