Andreas Lubitz – Before and After

by Scott Creighton (H/T ariadnatheo)

Marching in lockstep with the complicit corporate media like the New York Times and Reuters, fake alternative sites like Prison Planet and Natural News (as well as many others unfortunately) are running around doing their level best to help with the frame-up of Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz just as fast as they possibly can before anyone notices the glaring problems with the current investigation and the official story of what happened to the Airbus A320 flight 9525.

What they are doing is the exact same thing the government and corporate media did to people like Richard Jewel, Steven Hatfill, Bruce Edwards Ivins, James Holmes, Adam Lanza as well as the captain of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370.

Power Play Behind Regime Change in Russia

by Pepe Escobar, Sputnik

With “friends” like European Council President Donald Tusk and top NATO commander Gen. Philip Breedlove, the EU certainly doesn’t need enemies.

Gen. Breedhate has been spewing out his best Dr. Strangelove impersonation, warning that evil Russia is invading Ukraine on an everyday basis. The German political establishment is not amused.

Tusk, while meeting with US President Barack Obama, got Divide and Rule backwards; he insisted, “foreign adversaries” were trying to divide the US and the EU – when it’s actually the US that is trying to divide the EU from Russia. And right on cue, he blamed Russia — side by side with the fake Caliphate of ISIS/ISIL/Daesh

Tusk’s way out? The EU should sign the US corporate-devised racket known as Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), or NATO on trade. And then the “West” will rule forever.

Lavrov: Chances to reach Iran nuclear deal ‘pretty good’

from RT

The ongoing negotiations between Iran and six major world powers over Tehran’s controversial nuclear program have a high chance of producing a deal, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said. But the parties must not try to up the ante.

Lavrov interrupted his participation in the talks in in Switzerland’s Lausanne on Monday for a meeting with a delegation from Vanuatu, a small Pacific nation recently devastated by a cyclone.

Later on Tuesday he is to return to the negotiations, which are in a make-or-break last day phase.

The chances of a breakthrough in the talks are high, but success is not guaranteed, Lavrov stressed during a joint media conference with his Vanuatu counterpart Sato Kilman.

“We have an opportunity to realize our chances if no party to the negotiations tries to raise the stakes at the last moment to get something extra instead of keeping a balance of interests,” he said.

MSM Confirms Flight Data Recorder “Black Box” Taken from Casing

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: As of March 31st, 2015… they are “still looking for the flight data recorder” or more specifically, the data disks that had been removed.

UPDATE: Oh God, now they’re trying to say he was a closeted homosexual sitting on a “mountain of drugs” even though he was living with his real girlfriend (not the lyin skank who claimed he wanted the world to know his name) and she is reportedly pregnant. Not to mention the fact that pilots are routinely drug tested. Wow. They will do ANYTHING to maintain that “crazed lone gunman” story.

The other day I wrote a brief article about the president of France telling the media at a news conference that the all important Flight Data Recorder had been found but that the memory disks were “missing”

I cited three articles from news websites that confirmed his report.

Today the MSM has also confirmed this story via the Guardian with very little fanfare, almost making light of the fact that the black box was apparently opened and the memory disks removed.

Rescuers are still, however, to locate the plane’s second black box — its flight data recorder — six days after the Barcelona to Düsseldorf flight crashed into a rocky ravine at 435 miles (700km) per hour.”

“The black box, which is actually orange and weighs around 10kg, was originally in a protective casing, but only the empty casing has been found.”  Guardian

It’s important to understand the construction of this piece of equipment and the kind of testing they are put through in order to ensure they survive any type of crash so investigators can know exactly what happened to the plane.

To that end I am going to repost an update I put on an earlier article which gives all that information and provides a graphic diagram of a typical modern flight data recorder (H/T WRH)

All of that information is after the break.
