And now for the obligatory message from our sponsors:

Here at the Q tree we believe in the concept of CIVIL open free speech and the discussion that fleshes out ideas. When commenting and participating in the OPEN discussion on this thread all comments MUST NOT CONTAIN personal threats, baiting, name calling, or other anti-social words fomenting hate, violence or destruction. Our host Wolfm00n has strict rules about that.

Fellow tree dweller, the late Wheatie, gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone

Please, stock up on blanks for celebratory gunfire, be ready to swing from the chandeliers…and no messing with the nuclear weapons.

Please remember to remain locked and loaded and ready for trouble should the insurrectionists try to invade your space.

Those who have things to say that do not fit the generally accepted limits of “civil” discussion, Wolf has provided a venue known as the UTree. You’re welcome to visit over there and say hi to anyone hanging out over there. The “Rescue Thread” is also over there. In the event a rendezvous of the tree is needed, please check it out, as well as the newest rescue venue.

MATTHEW 26:14-25

14Then one of the twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests 15and said, “What will you give me if I deliver him to you?” And they paid him thirty pieces of silver. 16And from that moment he sought an opportunity to betray him. 17Now on the first day of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Where will you have us prepare for you to eat the passover?” 18He said, “Go into the city to a certain one, and say to him, `The Teacher says, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at your house with my disciples.'” 19And the disciples did as Jesus had directed them, and they prepared the passover. 20When it was evening, he sat at table with the twelve disciples; 21and as they were eating, he said, “Truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me.” 22And they were very sorrowful, and began to say to him one after another, “Is it I, Lord?” 23He answered, “He who has dipped his hand in the dish with me, will betray me. 24The Son of man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born.” 25Judas, who betrayed him, said, “Is it I, Master?” He said to him, “You have said so.”

As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome.

Please include: President Donald Trump, the Q team, our soldiers in the field, special forces, tactical units, first responders and those working behind the scenes…and any and all people with family members in the hospital, COVID or not.

And…members of the QTree who no longer participate for one reason or another.

It is quite clear, as per Wolf’s message from July, that we are under spiritual attack. Building up a robust arsenal of prayer and discipline is a must in fighting the enemy and his minions.

In that spirit, the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel from Tuesday’s threads, and the Breastplate of St. Patrick, not to mention the Litany of Humility are favorites recommended by exorcists in spiritual warfare.

Two things, maybe three.

Scott has hair almost as long as mine was way back when.

Lara made sure that she wasn’t too close to Scott and just barely touching him.

Scott looks weird with his leg crossed like that.

cthulhu

Scott is very, very, very tall. The weird leg-cross is trying to minimize that.

I’m not sure that’s Scott’s best facial grimace, but otherwise it’s well-composed — and I’m very glad to see him “in the tent” — just as I’m pleased to see Lara expanding the tent.

Lara Logan makes a compelling case in the video from the open. I suppose a cyber attack would disable the shipboard computer systems or enable control of them by outside sources. (If anyone can elaborate, please do.) Her theory, and what she says experts are telling her, is that the ship was taken over and forced to hit a critical support beam of the bridge, causing catastrophic collapse.

Parts of this article:
https://www.thedailybeast.com/baltimore-bridge-collapses-after-being-hit-by-cargo-ship

Officials said Tuesday that the container ship that crashed into Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge issued a “mayday” just before the collision, allowing bridge operators to halt traffic and potentially save lives.

“We’re thankful that between the ‘mayday’ and collapse that we had officials who were able to—to begin to stop the flow of traffic so more cars were not up on the bridge,” the governor said.

Clay Diamond, the head of the American Pilots’ Association, a trade organization for ship pilots, told the Associated Press the ship’s captain also ordered the crew to slam the rudder hard toward the ship’s port side and dropped its port anchor in a desperate bid to slow the vessel.

The bridge, completed in 1977, was not equipped with large “dolphins”—a group of pilings arrayed together to protect bridges from collapsing after a collision. Large dolphins have been installed around bridges near major ports in the aftermath of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge disaster in 1980—an incident that left 35 dead after the bridge collapsed into Tampa Bay after being struck by a cargo ship that went off course in heavy fog.

The Dali was not being piloted by its own crew at the time of Tuesday’s collision, either. It was instead being directed out of port by local pilots—a practice used worldwide to avoid collisions like the one that happened Tuesday. Local pilots steer outbound ships out to the open water before leaving the vessel to its regular crew, and board inbound vessels just before they reach local channels.

This fits that theory. The crew was not able to control the vessel, saw the crash coming, and notified authorities in order to keep cars from crossing the bridge. They were not in on the plot.

If the goal of the attack had been to kill a lot of people and cause terror of that sort, it could have been carried out during rush hour, with car after car plunging off the bridge. Instead, it has damaged critical infrastructure of the U.S. We’re in completely different territory now.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

It looks like a brilliant military move by China and possibly Russia as well.

Linda

Remember back when those navy ships were having weird accidents and Q mentioned something about China hacking into their electronics?

kalbokalbs

I do not know AND believe it may be possible for Chinee to hack into USN ship control.

That said, I have never bought into Chinee causing those USN accidents.

  :wpds_arrow:  More likely. USN ships hitting other ships or running aground, directly attributed to piss poor training and Qualification Standards NOT met.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yes – my theory at the time is that the ChiComs were spoofing GPS signals, which is a system hack, but not a ship hack.

But the recruit quality and training problem is REAL.

I’m thinking AND logic on that stuff.

para59r

I’ll be keeping China in mind, both as to the CCP and or the Avenging Sister Elaine Chou, however stemming the rising voices that are implicating our involvement in the Moscow Music Massacre fits the need to do something to wipe that from the news cycle as pulling the pins on Diddy was likely not enough.

It would be interesting to hear what more Lara Logan’s sources have to say as she seems to be pointing straight at the Deep State campers.

China does not normally do such overt acts.

Russia has a bone to pick with USG. Nordstream. Ukraine. All the BS Russia, Russia, Russia screams from USG AND Pravda News. The bullshit sanctions. Seizing (blatant theft) Russian citizens property.

Payback was always gonna be when we least expected it. I think this is it, or at least a first strike.

Russia may or may not be done.

Perhaps Russia is waiting to see how the USG acts.

—-

  :wpds_arrow:  Baltimore IS Big League. On the level of another step towards WWIII.

Nordstream was not an accident or terrorist attack. Nordstream was an Act of War.

Baltimore was not an accident or terrorist attack. Baltimore was an Act of War.

kalbokalbs

Further. Baltimore is not America’s October 7th. That will also happen when we least expect it.

At that time, FIB will go out on a limb. Calling it a terrorist attack.

para59r

If the Russia theory is it, then the Biden Administration missed a huge opportunity to not to pursue it by declaring right from the jump that this was not a terror attack. They could of said, we are still investigating and let rumors and theories swell. Instead they went with not a Terror.

The not a Terror feeds into exactly what Ms Logan is saying. That this was another in a long line of Deep State Attacks on the countries’ infrastructure, perhaps the largest to date if you rule out everything associated with the China Virus to include the vaxxx and some of the larger fires.

If they allowed it to be a Terror, it would have smoothed the way for more money to drained to Ukraine into deep state coffers. It would of put Russia supporters on the defensive with the possibility of J6 repercussions for speaking freely about it. It would of made it easy to squash free speech, it would weaken Trump support. But they chose not to go that route and instead wants everyone to continue on as before, in the pot slowly and blissfully boiling.

What they did get out of it was huge distraction that wiped the front page clean as well as a promised source for a new slush fund now that Biden has declared the US govt will pick up the total tab, a promise that congress will likely accept. Also no close inspection under the hood on as far as the cyber war is concerned and the US’s role in that war targeting whom? One may well assume the Bidense fear boomerangs and thus best to put this bed quickly as far as the fickle public is concerned. Besides they get their biggie too, which is the further eroding of America as a super power and moves us closer to Devolution and it’s cousin Depop.

As much as I like the Elaine Chou theory, Lara’s makes the best sense and it would not necessarily rule out China as having assisted in it’s happening even if we have the players that could of hacked the ship’s systems.

perhaps this was a china attack…reminding the maggot who controls his strings?

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I’m going with China, mostly. That Singapore flag on the ship screams CHINA. It’s perfect timing for China to pull it off, b/c it muddies the attribution in a huge way, right after Russia gets hit by CIA. And China can secretly tell Russia that it did the job, to tighten that alliance. China needs to do it to prepare for taking Taiwan while Briben is in office. If China + DNC + CIA + FBI can swing the election against Trump, then China has time (years) on taking Taiwan, but if they can’t, then taking it while China Joe is in office but during the transition gives them lots of options – even China Joe holding onto the White House.

Things are going to be spicy, is my prediction.

kalbokalbs

Too damned spicy.

pgroup2

After much contemplation, I have decided that CCP does not want to “take” Taiwan.

It is much more valuable as a tool by which the West can be manipulated. I’ve been hearing ‘China is going to take Taiwan’ or ‘China could take Taiwan if we did such-and-such’ all my life since high school.

They use the same template economically. Devices might have Chinese listening chips so they can’t be used here being one example. We never seem to determine if those devices or their chips actually do it; we just assume and proceed.

It’s much easier and cheaper to be a paper dragon, which is fitting since we’re called the paper tiger.

YMMV

kalbokalbs

Yup. Have said as much. China does not need to “take” Taiwan. Nothing to gain, IMO. Besides, toying with USG is fun for Chinee.

Your comment makes a lot of sense.

Also the purposeful erosion of quality control via DEI is going to start proving itself in more and more industrial areas. It’s sort of like a soft internal terrorism. They openly install ill equipped managers, they openly urge hiring 3rd world illegals in police, military, food production. They’re openly calling for abolishing high standards for attorneys and medical professionals. If it continues it will be hard to determine if catastrophes are manipulation by foreign actors or by ‘us’.

para59r

DEI will certainly make it easier to hide all sorts of malfeasance and criminality both.

mollypitcher5

How about in the cyber hacking area? I know little about how it works but my question is if there are dedicated and competent technicians monitoring systems can cyber takeovers be thwarted?

pgroup2

Yes, but systems are not monitored 24/7.

Too expensive.  😪 

pgroup2

‘By humans’ should be in there somewhere.

mollypitcher5

And since they’re treating illegals on a par with citizens, are illegals part of ‘us’ or are they ‘foreign actors’?

Blurred lines.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Excellent. IMO this shows that southerly drift would be VERY predictable if the ship lost power at that point. The degree of southerly drift is STRONG at the point where it loses power. Whether it’s current, typical rudder position, or a combination of both, it looks to me like a very decisive change in course by simply losing power.

SD Interesting read.

From Beyond the Wire – The Information War, CBDCs and a Metaphor for Those Who Need

After my latest outline on the looming probability of a dollar based CBDC {SEE HERE} I found myself saying, “I hate to say this, but most people really don’t care. For some, the issue is esoteric, abstract, and difficult to comprehend. For others, there is a massive blanket of comfortable ambivalence until the consequences hit. For the few who understand, this is extremely troubling.”
.
.
How many Americans know that an iPhone-15 sold in the USA is completely different from an iPhone-15 sold outside the yellow zone? Meaning the internal hardware is different. How many Americans know that?

How many Americans know that an iPhone-15 sold inside the USA has different originating software than an iPhone-15 sold outside the USA?

How many people know that when you purchase one of these “ghost phones” the data network automatically identifies the disparity when the phone crosses into the yellow zone, and shortly thereafter the cellular network transmits a software update to bring the “ghost phone” into USA (yellow zone) compliance?

How many Americans know phone apps and internal app functions can exist on phones outside the yellow zone that do not exist inside the yellow zone?

Example: use a ghost phone and you can access a digital wallet in Telegram; you can transmit funds to other Telegram users. However, use a USA compliant phone and you cannot. The function is there but the service is, “not available in your area.”

Why?

It’s about control.
.
.
♦ Technology is intertwined with Central Bank Digital Currencies. Tech companies are regulated by the U.S/Western government, and the tech companies have to comply. The regulatory compliance is part of the process of control. There are regulatory walls around us that most do not understand. The same regulatory principle applies to finance and banking. Hence, the origination motive of the yellow zone wall, built under the auspices of Russian sanctions.

Let me make one big point resoundingly clear before moving on.  When the WESTERN Central Bank Digital Currency system begins, all forms of cryptocurrency will be blocked and made unlawful, inside the western zone, either by regulation or by legislation.

Let me repeat this. Cryptocurrency in all forms will be banned.

Crypto is not technically a currency, it is a barter based on trust. However, at a certain point (origination or end) crypto must have the ability to transfer into currency value. Dollars (or another currency) are needed to purchase BitCoin,…. or BitCoin eventually sold or exchanged for Dollars (or another currency). [BitCoin only used as a familiar type of crypto.] This process is where crypto gets blocked.

Ownership of Crypto may not be unlawful, but any effort to use Crypto as an alternate digital currency to exchange value will be unlawful once the dollar based CBDC is launched.

A fully implemented govt controlled central bank digital currency will not allow competition. Alternate crypto currency will be banned. Without any doubt!

San Francisco being sued over raw sewage and other things being dumped into the bay.
FTA
Nearly all of SFPUC’s discharges flow into Mission Creek and Islais Creek, Baykeeper found. The nonprofit’s field investigators visited Mission Creek during sewer discharges and saw the presence of fecal matter, plastics, syringes, and condoms in the water.

Human excrement, used needles, and used condoms—when I read that this morning, I was very thankful to have still had an empty stomach.

Gasoline cars, gas stoves, air conditioners, dishwashers, lightbulbs must all be regulated or taxed into nonexistence for the little people, because the “carbon footprint” of such amenities is too detrimental to the environment—but poop, dirty needles, and old rubbers don’t really seem to spark the same outrage.

Plastic straws and plastic bags are the worst form of pollution and must be outlawed, lest they accidentally make their way into the ocean and some poor little sea turtle chokes and dies—never mind diarrhea, used drug paraphernalia, and latex trash saturating the bay.
Masks are mandatory during the scamdemic, as well as experimental jabs, and anyone so inconsiderate of their neighbor’s health that they would refuse to adhere to “science” deserve to lose their jobs and (at best) live in a leper’s colony—because heaven forfend anyone catch a flu-like virus with a nearly 100% survival rate—while uncontained feces, disease-addled syringes, and post-coitus contraceptives contaminating the water supply are of a lower concern to “health” officials.

The left’s idea of what’s clean and what’s dirty, and what’s pollution and what’s not, is fittingly inverted, because they’re flat-out wrong on everything, and their childish fantasies of utopia are entirely disconnected from reality and objectivity.

Since November, Combs has been the subject of numerous civil lawsuits following a civil suit from his former romantic partner, Cassie, who accused him of physically and sexually abusing her for years. Cassie, whose full name is Casandra Ventura, utilized the New York Adult Survivors Act, which offered a one-year window for adult victims of sexual assault to come forward with civil claims regardless of the statute of limitations.
She and Combs settled the suit a day after she filed in New York. Combs has rejected the accusations, calling them offensive and outrageous.

Since then, three other women have filed lawsuits in the Southern District of New York alleging that they were sexually assaulted by Combs. Two said they were teenagers at the time of the alleged assaults.

The only time I’ve liked pineapple on a pizza was with pepperoni and jalapeño. And it is delicious!

But the pineapple has to be small-diced, not big chunks, and the pepperoni should be spicy. It’s sweet, hot, and salty all at once. Fantastic.

Yep. The various “rewards” programs everywhere have gotten stingier… it used to be $3.00 off a Medium, $4.00 off a Large, and $5.00 off an Extra-Large… or get a second pizza for half price…

Their crust is incomparable… OK, their sauces and toppings, too. There were four chains that had very similar pizzas way back when: RoundTable, Shakey’s, Straw Hat, and Me’N’Ed’s…

There’s a YouTube about how RoundTable makes their crusts… and some comments on it by RT employees giving a lot more detail. Seems it takes more than one day for the dough to “mature”, so that could well be the difference… wish I could get their recipe, but I don’t know if I could stand to wait a day (and do all the folding and kneading they do) 😀

PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD

Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.

I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.

Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.

With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.

Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me. 

Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.

ABBA’s tune is catchy, and milder; Cabaret’s is depraved, just like the WEFfenSS…

and, based on the decadence of Berlin (that we’re seeing again), from Cabaret,

pgroup2

I miss Joel Grey. Such a great actor.

Cuppa Covfefe

Yep.

What really strikes me with Cabaret is it shows Berlin as being decadent, but it comes nowhere near close to just how decadent it was back then.

Worse, Berlin is even MORE decadent now. The brief interregnum in Bonn was just a slight diversion from Berlin’s perversion…

A month or so ago, there was a meteor that broke up and fell in pieces around Berlin… I was kind of hoping it would take out the Reichstag and the perverse politicians…….

Definitely a smart move on RFKJ’s part.
This will cut deeper into Biden’s vote count and lessen further Republicans crossing over.
RFKJ is threat to Biden and much less so to Trump now.

The redoubtable Walter M Chesnut is on the trail of something very interesting, which ties in with “The Elephant in the Room” post of Yours Truly earlier this week on this board:

https://wmcresearch.substack.com/p/persistence-of-spike-protein-induces
“Persistence of Spike Protein Induces a State of Chronic Disease (Parallels to Asbestos): The Essence of Long COVID”
Walter M Chesnut
26 March 2024
Yours Truly: Mr. Chesnut presents and discusses a paper published on 3 March 2024 by Medrxiv.org/ (the DOI document was published on 24 March 2024.) regarding the presence of “Long COVID” symptoms in COVID-19 “vaccinated” persons up to 245 days post-“vaccination.” [Note: 245 days post-“vaccination” is not the “be-all-and-end-all” number of days: It is only what was studied and presented in the paper cited.]
This small study included the following COVID-19 “vaccines” — Pfizer-BioNTech; Moderna; Johnson & Johnson (Janssen), which was withdrawn for use in the United States in the spring of 2023; and AstraZeneca. There were 50 patients in the study. They were compared to “vaccinated”, healthy control patients.
The 50 patients who presented with “Long COVID” symptoms complained of:
fatigue;
neuropathy;
brain fog;
headache.
All four of the COVID-19 “vaccines” listed above were involved in the presence of symptoms.
It was found that the CD16+ immune system cells of the 50 study patients had elevated levels of cytokines (cells that “signal” inflammation in the body.)
It was found that the elevated cytokine levels in the 50 study patients were in their monocytes (white blood cells.) [Note: CD16 cells can be shed from the body via the monocytes: http://www.researchgate.net/figure/LPS-induced-ADAM17-mediated-CD14-and-CD16-shedding-from-monocytes-A-Pre-treatment-of_fig4_335422972]

The paper published originally on 3 March is here:
http://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2024.03.24.24304286v1.full.pdf

The same paper, in DOI document form, published on 24 March 2024, is here:
https://doi.org/10.1101/2024.03.24.24304286
“Persistence of S1 Spike Protein in CD16+ Monocytes up to 245 Days in SARS-CoV-2 Negative Post COVID-19 Vaccination Individuals with Post-Acute Sequelae of COVId-19 (PASC)-Like Symptoms”
Ram Yogendra, et al.

Summary by Yours Truly of the above:
One: “Long COVID” does exist, and it can occur in COVID-19 “vaccinated” persons.
Two: The COVID-19 “vaccines” elevate the CD16+ cell levels in the white blood cells of “vaccinated” persons.
Three: These elevated CD16+ cell levels indicate elevated levels of inflammation in the body.
Four: These elevated CD 16+ cell levels in COVID-19 “vaccinated” persons can exist for up to 245 days [so far] as presented in the cited study.
Five: CD16 cells can shed from the human body.

Here is an image of a figure from the cited paper, showing the elevated CD16+ cell levels in the COVID-19 “vaccinated” persons who complained of “Long COVID” symptoms:

By the way, Medrxiv is owned by Cold Spring Harbor, a “non-partisan” research company based in New York State. Cold Spring Harbor began a “partnership” in 2009 with Suzhou Industrial Park in the CCP, to create “Cold Spring Harbor Asia.” Suzhou Industrial Park is a joint venture by the CCP and Singapore.

An oil refinery owner suggested that there may be some validity to reports that contaminated fuel potentially played a role in the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse that took place on Tuesday morning.

“It’s just stealing money, the companies selling them. If nobody’s watching closely enough, they’ll give them contaminated fuel,” United Refining Company CEO John Catsimatidis said during an appearance on “Mornings with Maria” in response to contributor Monica Crowley asking how it could get onto the ship. 

His comment comes on the heels of sources telling The Wall Street Journal that safety investigators will look into whether dirty fuel played a part in the accident. 

Catsimatidis claimed that it’s “usual” for companies to receive dirty fuel, and argued that New York schools and the city’s transportation system have “experienced it.”
“Contaminated fuel is being sold to the [New York] schools and sold to the MTA when the MTA or the schools are not watching closely enough,” he stressed. 

The vessel went dead, no steering power and no electronics,” an officer aboard the ship said Tuesday. “One of the engines coughed and then stopped. The smell of burned fuel was everywhere in the engine room and it was pitch black.”

https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/oil-refinery-owner-sounds-alarm-over-dirty-fuel-as-baltimore-bridge-collapse-probe-continues/ar-BB1kDliW

Can’t understand how NYC metro and schools could be getting contaminated fuel more than once. Wouldn’t the ATF step in and get to the bottom of the problem. Have things gotten so lax that agencies shrug their shoulders ?

pgroup2

Obviously, the bribe amounts [to get them to do their jobs] need to be increased.

I asked about ATF because back in the stone age ( the 90’s) we got bad gas up in the Sierras on a camping trip. Somehow the agency I was directed to was ATF but on their current webpage it doesn’t mention anything about gasoline

kalbokalbs

Not buying it. Smacks of, “look squirrel.”

para59r

They are trying very hard to make this look like a normal accident.
They should call us back when they can show us that other ships have experienced the same problem. Meanwhile by not calling it a Terror they’ll be no immediate investigation and some low level commission will be hired on to investigate and report in 3 to 12 months after which time the public will be on to other great disasters unfolding all about us.

Cuppa Covfefe

Kind of worries me when accidents are classed as “normal”…..

Gail Combs

At least in my trucks we have a fuel filter and a water separator plus an indicator for H2O in the fuel.

Also you never buy fuel while the tanks are being filled because it stirs up the sludge in the bottom of the tank.

FWIW, the best speculation I’ve heard so far is that it was Smog Laws … honest!

See, in the last few years, ships have been required to swap over to “low sulphur fuel” and use one fuel in port and different (cheaper but dirtier fuel) crossing the ocean.

There have been recorded reliability issues with these giant engines on the “new” fuels (rather like in the ’80s when the swap for USA cars & trucks killed a lot of engines…). (Some of the stuff that used to stay dissolved in the old fuel doesn’t stay dissolved in the new fuel… and plugs up injectors and such).

So the speculation goes that the ship might have been swapping over from “in port” fuel (low sulphur diesel) to “at sea” fuel (bunker oil?) and that killed the engine. That the stacks blow dark black smoke on the restart argues for “at sea” oil in use then and not the “in port” fuel.

But to know for sure, we need the ship’s report on what they actually were doing then. Starting the aux generator on “at sea” fuel? Doing a “restart” on the main engine? Did they ever get the main engine going at all?

So the best guess is maybe a fuel issue due to the now mandated different fuels, fuel swapping when underway, etc. etc….

So, doing a fuel switchover while exiting the harbor… could be a stretch, or not…

Once again, plausible deniability…

In any case, condolences for those lost, and their families… and the likely soon-to-be unemployed (if only temporarily) due to the shipping and road interruptions…

china files complaint at WTO against US for offering rebates and incentives to buy American made EVs or from “certain regions” because it hinders THEIR EV programs. I’m of the opinion that what the US offers it’s citizen’s is of no business to china. (not that I’m in favor of EVs at all.)
FTA
China has initiated dispute settlement proceedings against the United States at the World Trade Organization to safeguard its interests in the electric vehicle industry, the Chinese mission said on Tuesday and the WTO confirmed.
China said it was contesting “discriminatory subsidies” under the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) that it said resulted in the exclusion of goods from China and other WTO countries.
The wide-ranging law provides billions of dollars in tax credits to help consumers buy electric vehicles and companies produce renewable energy, as President Joe Biden aims to decarbonise the mighty U.S. power sector.
“Under the disguise of responding to climate change, reducing carbon emission and protecting environment, (these subsidies) are in fact contingent upon the purchase and use of goods from the United States, or imported from certain particular regions,” the Chinese mission said.
