Debris found on Reunion Island
by Dee McLachlan
I normally try not to speculate on an incident when the facts are confusing, and there are a number of possible theories. However, after receiving a phone call last week, I will discuss the 2014 disappearance of MH370 (not to be confused with MH17).
Of the 239 people on board the flight, six were Australian.
The Australian government website reports that “The Australian Government has provided around $90 million as part of Australia’s contribution to the search…”
This is a large sum of money, and has, so far, produced very little.
So in this article I will try answer these questions:
- What happened to the plane?
- Are they searching in the right place?
- And was this economic sabotage?
Let me go through the facts briefly:
On 8 March 2014, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport for Beijing, and the Boeing 777 was piloted by Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, 53 (ABC report). In Wikipedia it says:
“Air traffic control [ATC] lost contact with Flight 370 less than an hour into the flight, after which it was tracked by military radar crossing the Malay Peninsula and was last located over the Andaman Sea…”
It is possible the transponder was manually switched off? And…
Did the Plane Fly West, then South?
Initially attention focused on waters in the South China Sea, but reports surfaced that secondary and military radar had tracked the plane west, then south over the Indian Ocean (as above). But in a conflicting report (ABC, 12 March 2014), Malaysian Air force chief General Rodzali Daud denied MH370 was detected on Malaysian radar far west of its flight path:
“Mr Rodzali said he ‘did not make any such statements,’…”
Regardless, the search was directed to off the west coast of Australia in the Southern Hemisphere — becoming the most expensive search in aviation history.
And one would think that the Australian authorities would have been provided with the intel and science to form a judgement as where to search — especially when you consider the effort and cost.
Conspiracies and Freescale Semiconductors Patents
There were countless theories in the mainstream and alternative medias — from a rogue pilot intent on suicide, that MH17 was in fact MH370, to reports that an American IBM executive, Phillip Wood, sent a (black) photo and text from GPS coordinates near the US controlled Diego Garcia military base in the Indian Ocean. This conspiracy (debunked on beforeitsnews) claimed that he was a prisoner, and that the plane had been hijacked by military personnel.
When MH370 went missing, I was immediately intrigued by the reports that 20 members of Freescale Semiconductor were on the plane. This US tech company had launched, or was developing, new electronic gadgets or RFID chips for military radar systems. And it was alleged that four persons: Peidong Wang, Zhijun Chen, Cheng and Li Ying Zhijong, all from Suzhou City, China, were to share 20% each, with the last 20% belonging to Freescale Semiconductor. All four were on flight MH370 to Beijing.
“Four days after the missing flight MH370 a patent is approved by the Patent Office, four of the five Patent holders are Chinese employees of Freescale Semiconductor of Austin TX.”
As I understand it, the families of the four original patent holders who died would never inherit the royalty proceeds from the patent (Disinfo.com). I have no idea of the present status of this patent.
The fact that so many (20) highly qualified Freescale staff died prompted a number of theories. They were not working for just any old company. Freescale evolved from Motorola to become one of the world’s leading tech companies, and in 2006 was bought out by a consortium, led by Blackstone Group and The Carlyle Group, for $17.6 billion.
In 2013, Freescale announced the creation of the world’s smallest ARM-powered chip (1.9 by 2 millimeters), and claims that these chips could be “used for its SWALLOWABLE computers.” (Okay!!!!)
Conspiracies love the “R” word,” so theories focused on the patent as a reason for the plane being “taking down,” and that Jacob Rothschild would benefit.
The Mainstream Media’s Unusual Coverage
I could never quite understand why the mainstream media (MSM) gave coverage to so many conspiracy theories. They joined the alternative media in spreading many wild ideas about the plane’s demise. And that is not the MSM’s usual modus operandi.
The nypost provided their top ten theories — from fire, to gradual decompression, mechanical failure, hijacking, theft of gold, possible terrorist attack (as two passengers were traveling on stolen passports), pilot involvement or pilot suicide. The Mirror catalogued nineteen conspiracy theories. Please!
The MSM provided only ONE theory of the September 11 attacks — and assailed anyone who questioned that narrative.
There are two ways for the MSM to control a story:
1) provide one theory, and report that over and over again, or
2) propagate so many theories, that it becomes impossible to focus on the most likely outcome.
This means that many of the conspiracies — even those that are promoted on alternative sites — assisted in the confusion.
In this confusion “shoot down” theories emerged.
MH370 Shot Down?
On 15 March 2014, Michael Shrimpton wrote in Veterans Today that “a Chinese SSK, believed to be a 636 Kilo class, shot down a Malaysian airliner, Boeing 777…” with a AIM-54A Phoenix missile.
Shrimpton thought that the Captain might have seen the missile exhaust trail approaching, and deactivated all onboard radar systems. He goes on to say that the US Navy (probably USS Pinckney) then “whacked” the Chinese Kilo — hence the reported diesel slick on the surface of the ocean (aviation fuel is light and disperses).
“U.S. military shot down MH370 because they thought it had been hacked and was about to be used in terror attack.” [Wow]
Questions About the Chinese
The search, as I have mentioned, was directed to the vast expanse in the southern Indian Ocean, and years later, reports “confirmed” that the debris found in Tanzania is from the missing plane, as were the pieces found on Reunion Island.
But let me ask a few questions and try join a few dots.
The Chinese agency SASTIND claimed one of its satellites had detected three large “floating objects” in the South China Sea. They were taken at 11am on 9 March.
So why did the Chinese government take several days before publishing the photographs on their website?
The last point of contact with ATC was over the South China Sea. Did Australia check and authenticate the secondary and military radar data that tracked the plane west — then south?
It was a Chinese patrol ship that detected the ultrasonic ping deep in the southern Indian Ocean (in the new search area). Was this data verified by the Australian authorities?
Then again it was a Chinese air force plane that spotted three suspicious objects floating in the new search off Australia.
Was this data verified by the Australian authorities?
Why did China only contribute $20 million — when 153 on board the plane were Chinese? (Australia contributed $90 million for 6 lost.)
And this report in The Australian alleges China was spying not searching:
“The Chinese government ship tasked with hunting for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has done little searching but has probably used the opportunity to spy on Australian military activity, according to security experts.”
One also has to ask why the MSM aired nearly every conspiracy possible — except the “China shot down MH370” story that appeared on Veterans Today.
It had crossed my mind in 2014 that maybe the US did not want those 20 Freescale employees to go to the Beijing conference, or that maybe they were defecting with intelligence. There was the possibility that someone did not want to share in the patent’s royalties? Maybe. But I don’t think so. The media would have been far less scattered in their reporting.
After receiving that phone call, I now ask myself: What if the Freescale military technology had ALREADY been STOLEN?
Could the plane have been shot down over the South China Sea to cover-up the theft? Did someone have to stop the Freescale team from discovering the theft of valuable technology at the Beijing conference?
Every now and then I have to remember that there is a whole world operating outside our reality. Powerful “corporate” groups (and shadow governments) operate in a parallel universe — and we have to try make sense of it.
So is this simply a case of corporate espionage and sabotage? It happens all the time.
But in the meantime, Australia just keeps searching — at YOUR expense.
