Murder: The New Weapon For Assassination
Reporter Hastings Death Is Another Instance To Ponder
by Tim Watts 080113
The bizarre death of reporter Michael Hastings has many in
the alternative media pointing fingers, with accusations of
murder being directed by some towards the US intelligence community. Interestingly
enough, some in the mainstream media have taken note as
well, and perhaps that was meant to be - to send a signal to
the press, that if anyone should try to expose them, this is
what they can expect.
There are many ways to
control the media. It's really very simple to
understand. Either you buy it up, or you instill fear into
those you can't buy out. Fear is the same powerful tool that
they use against everyone. Reporters and members of the
media are no different than anyone else, and as such, they
are also not immune to the fear threat.
Those that don't buy into the
fear, well, there's another solution for them, as we've
apparently seen from the death of Michael Hastings,
contributing editor for The Rolling Stone, as well as a
reporter for BuzzFeed.com.
Many people have naively and
ignorantly dismissed the thought that Hastings vehicle could
have been remotely controlled to crash, because they believe it
just sounds too far fetched to be true.
What they would be
remiss in comprehending is that the technology does exist to
pull off a clandestine hit on an unsuspecting person, using
their own vehicle.
The fact of the matter is, this
well known in some technology circles and has been reported
many times, as you will see from the video and web links below.
So the bottom line is, the
potential to use the new electronic computer systems of
assassination is clearly there, readily available to a
highly skilled hacker, such as those employed by DOD and our
intel agencies. This capability exists
without a doubt or any question whatsoever. It is indeed a technological fact.
Do you suppose that our
intelligence agencies don't know about this technology?
The big question is, if someone
used it on Hastings, how many other times has this method of
attack been used? How many have died in what was thought to
be a mere accident.
Princess Diana does come to
mind. There's a story to check into.
The nefarious powers that be
learned long ago about the blowback from murdering popular
leaders and public figures. (See the 1960's) That
blowback came in the form of public adoration and
martyrdom. With that came national holidays to honor these
brave and revered fallen leaders.
That has to irk those who
wanted to get rid of these people.
So now, instead of a blatant
assassination by bullet, they either discredit
you, or they kill you, but not in a way that can be
unanimously viewed as an assassination.
They have now graduated to more sophisticated methods of murder, using our
own vehicles to do us in.
If you look back at the
beginning of the expansion of the US police state,
since 9/11, two very prominent hits took place using
vehicles, but this time they were airplanes.
Senator Paul Wellstone and Missouri Governor Mel Carnahan
were both killed in questionable small plane crashes, with
many alleging an EMP pulse to disable each plane's
Now we have the case of editor
and reporter Michael Hastings, who notified friends before
his death that he had to go underground because he suspected
he was being scrutinized by the FBI for a huge story that he
was working on, a story that by Hastings' own account was
perhaps his biggest story ever.
And then, quite coincidentally
enough, Michael Hastings car is involved in a fiery crash
with a palm tree, early Tuesday morning, bursting into
flames and taking the life of the young 33 year old
reporter. The car was reported to be traveling in excess of
100 mph, running a red light, before slamming into the tree
and killing Hastings.
There are many curious things
about this alleged accident.
Number one, there were no skid
marks. That's pretty odd. It suggests two things, that
either Hastings did nothing to stop his car, or his brakes
were not working.
Number two, the car's engine and
drive train were found almost 200 feet behind
Did you catch that last part?
How the heck does that happen?
How does a car engine traveling over 100 mph, suddenly
reverse its forward momentum? The engine and drive train
should have been propelled forward.
Some might argue that if you
throw a ball against a stationary object, it bounces
backwards. Do not fall for that simplistic ruse. The car did
not bounce backwards, yet two objects propelled out of the
car, reversed their 100 mph forward momentum and velocity
and were found nearly 200 feet behind the auto.
By any standard of physics,
that's very strange indeed, if not physically impossible.
Keep in mind that an eyewitness
at the scene, named Jose, from a business nearby called
ALSCO Inc, said that the car was traveling very fast andhe heard
a couple of explosions

Maybe this explains why, according to San Diego TV 6, the

Number three, according to Mercedes Benz, they go out of
their way to prevent explosions such as the one involving
Hastings' brand new 2013 model.
Firemen on the scene were taken aback by the intensity of
the fire, something they were said to have openly questioned
and noted as being unusual for a gasoline fire.
And then there's this huge red flag... Hastings
contacted Wikileaks attorney Jennifer Robinson, reportedly
just hours before his death, claiming that the FBI was
What's the old saying? Just because you're paranoid
doesn't mean they're not out to get you.
Strangely enough, adding fuel to
the conspiracy is none other than former U.S. National
Coordinator for Security, and Counter-terrorism chief
Richard Clarke who, after news broke about the Hastings car
accident, publicly confirmed the hacked “drive by wire”
In an interview with
The Huffington Post, Clarke said that a single-vehicle crash
is “consistent with a car cyber attack. There is
reason to believe that intelligence agencies for major
powers — including the United States — know how to remotely
seize control of a car.”
Of course, local LA
police authorities are saying publicly that there was
"no foul play”
involved in the accident.
According to reports,
refusing to release the accident and toxicology reports, or
make the Mercedes available for inspection, fueling even
more suspicion and speculation.
Yeah, none of that is suspicious
at all. Right...
Nothing to see here folks.
It's interesting to note that
before his death Hastings was writing about the CIA and also NSA spying, but
also about new efforts from the US government to step up its
propaganda efforts in the US against its own citizens. He
wrote three such articles in the last year.
The technological age brings
with it many conveniences, but many times that same
technology can be a threat and used against us, as perhaps
was the case with Hastings, Wellstone, Carnahan, and God
only knows how many others.
As this reporter sees it, two
things are possible here after the death of Hastings:
One, all reporters might now
cower in fear and thus refrain from investigating the
nefarious powers that be - the criminals within our
government and behind it, or... number two, they
could become enraged and decide to grow a spine for once and
After all, if the media doesn't
fight back, the threat will never be exposed, and as a
result, it will never go away.
Fear has always been the tool of
the weak. By that I mean, someone who kills just because
they are not intellectually strong enough to defeat you in a
The truth of the matter is, they
don't want you to realize that you are free without fear.
Once you realize that, you take away one of their main tools
So don't be ignorant or naive
about the perils of technology and how it can be exploited
and used against us. The facts are clear and the potential
Instead, be aware and be
careful. Don't be fearful, but be stronger. Don't recoil
from the fight over corrupt government. Stay strong and strengthen your resolve,
because truth is what they fear the most.
In the case of Michael Hastings,
that much appears to be quite obvious.
