Russ Baker on Boston Bombing, Bush, Media

WhoWhatWhy.com Editor-in-Chief Russ Baker takes his audience on a slightly unsettling—and occasionally amusing—trip behind the headlines during an April 24 talk at The Common Good Cafe at University Temple Methodist Church in Seattle. Russ speaks about the Boston Bombing and how the “Boston Strong” campaign diverts attention from the real story; his exploration of the Bush dynasty in his book, Family of Secrets; and how the truth is often far from what is being reported in the media.

Russ also took a series of engaging questions from the audience, which you can see here:

Flight 370 reality check

As the conventional news coverage of Flight 370 becomes increasingly delusional and detached from reality, for the sake of all those families and loved ones still suffering I thought it important to publish a reality check that can help bring the discussion back to some common sense.

Let’s cover five indisputable facts about governments, radar and aircraft:

Fact #1) Every modern nation tracks air traffic with military radar systems

All the key nations involved in Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 run military radar systems 24/7. This includes Malaysia and India, of course. These radar systems are operated for purposes of national defense, making sure each nation can identify aircraft entering its air space.

If you don’t believe that military-grade radar systems can track the altitude, direction and speed of a Boeing 777, then you don’t believe in radar at all.

Fact #2) Every modern nation runs civilian air traffic control “passive” radar systems that work even without aircraft transponders

Beyond the military radar, modern nations also run air traffic control radar systems which work in both “active” (transponder) modes and “passive” mode (requiring no transponder). Although civilian air traffic control systems are generally not as powerful or accurate as military systems, they are nonetheless fully capable of detecting and tracking a Boeing 777.

In fact, as any air traffic controller will tell you, their radar systems are fully capable of tracking flocks of birds and other airborne objects which are far smaller than a Boeing 777.

Fact #3) A Boeing 777 has a massive radar signature

Unless equipped with some sort of exotic technology we’ve never heard of — like a radar “invisibility cloak” borrowed from the Klingons of Star Trek — a Boeing 777 has a massive radar signature. The cylindrical fuselage, curved wings and surface controls (flaps, ailerons, rudder) all reflect radar waves with very high efficiency. A commercial Boeing aircraft is not a stealth bomber.

The explanation that this Boeing 777 “vanished” from radar simply doesn’t hold water. And if the explanation is that “the pilot flew the aircraft at very low elevation to evade radar,” then it makes no sense that the pilot would carry out this complex evasion for 4-7 hours and then plunge the aircraft into the Indian Ocean.

Furthermore, a suicidal pilot has no need to evade radar in the first place! If he wanted to crash the plane, he could have done it immediately after takeoff, or at any point during the first few minutes of flight. There is no need to evade radar if you wish to consciously crash the aircraft. …

Obama prepares to smash BRICS

The buildup of NATO air and ground forces along the borders of Russia in eastern Europe and President Barack Obama’s American power-influencing trip to Asia have a single purpose. The seen and unseen forces who dictate policy to their political puppets in Washington, London, Paris, Brussels, Berlin, and other vassal capital cities have decided to smash BRICS – the emergent financial power bloc encompassing Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. 

Bilateral and multilateral discussions among the five emerging economic powers aimed at decoupling BRICS economies from the U.S. dollar as a reserve and trading currency have met with the only power Washington can muster on behalf of itself and its foundering allies – military force. The problems between Ukraine and Russia over Crimea and federalism within Ukraine are a mask designed to cover Obama’s true intentions, which are the smashing of the BRICS as a viable alternative to the neo-colonialist financial systems of the West and subsuming the economies of the BRICS to the whims of the United States and the ever-teetering European Union.

The G-8, which suspended Russia from membership, and the World Trade Organization, of which Russia is now a member, never had a thing to do with free trade and common economic policies. These contrivances, formed in the back rooms by the bankers of the Trilateral Commissions and Bilderberg Group, were always about unipolar domination of the world by a single superpower. Since the end of World War II and the collapse of the once-dominant British Empire, that superpower has been the United States.

Not only are the BRICS countries shedding their dependency on the U.S. dollar as a trading and reserve currency, thus making the U.S. fiat currency backed by the manipulative practices of the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank, even more worthless than it already is, but Russia and China are already trading in the ruble and the yuan, their respective currencies.  There are plans for the embryonic Eurasian Economic Union, a counter to the bloated and corrupt European Union, to adopt a dollar- and euro-free monetary unit called the «altyn» by 2025. These plans have sent the Western globalists and bankers into nervous fits and, as a result, we see the buildup of U.S. and Western military forces on the Russian borders in Europe and in China’s waters in the Far East.

The neo-conservatives who dominate the policymaking apparatuses in Washington, London, Brussels, Paris, and Berlin have concocted a risky method to smash the BRICS. What U.S. intelligence and its Western counterparts are planning for the BRICS is the very same thing that the West accuses Russia of doing in Ukraine: financing separatist groups with the intent of peeling away at the national integrity of the BRICS nations. As far as Western intelligence agencies are concerned, the BRICS have two choices: remain committed to the BRICS as an alternative to Western domination and face the breakup of their nation-states or throw in the towel and agree to surrender themselves to the dictates of the Central Intelligence Agency, the centurions for Wall Street, and the «company’s» junior partners in London, Paris, and Berlin. …

Lobotomy and Medico-Munchausen Disorder

It’s all about the emotional and financial needs of the doctor and his glorification via “saving” his patients, who are often suffering from iatrogenic problems to begin with (social isolation in a “mental hospital” and diverting psychosocial solutions into a chemical dead end is a great way to create dependency and hopelessness).  This kind of compulsion is rampant in medicine especially where children are involved.   In any other context munchausen by proxy is a criminal offense.
