Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

Talk about fodder for the conspiratorial mind. I'm not sure if this is being taken seriously but it seems to be coming from some top levels of government - two notions in particular. Notion #1 is that Polish officials are looking into the possibility that 'artificial fog' could have been manufactured and placed above the Smolensk airport before a Polish plane carrying that country's president and 90+ top officials, crashed on April 10th. Notion #2 is the possibility that the plane's controls may have been manipulated from the ground.

Uh, I think the possibility that there was foul play in this crash should absolutely remain on the table. As I've said before, the tragic irony and many macabre coincidences surrounding this crash definitely warrant consideration of that scenario. Russia's lack of complete transparency only fuels it.

But this struck me as an odd course of action.

Via the London Telegraph:
Poland reportedly wants access to US satellite photography that might cast new light on the weather conditions at the time of the crash, according to Gazeta Prawna, a Polish newspaper.

Prosecutors want help from American experts as to whether “there is a scientific and technical capacity to generate artificial fog”, the paper said.

Citing a source close to the investigation, the newspaper said the possibility that somebody may have created an artificial fog bank has now come under official analysis as Polish experts work to determine the causes of the tragedy.
The requests for U.S. Satellite imagery as well as exploring if the U.S. has any recordings of the cockpit recordings from NATO's Signals Monitoring Network seem very reasonable. Putting forth the suggestions that 'artificial fog' and remote control seem quite outlandish.

That said, this latest report should keep the story in the news.

Read it all.


His name is Malik Zulu Shabazz and he heads the New Black Panther Party. One day after videos surfaced of him on Russian Television and a MediaIte video saying that there was a conspiracy to have him banned from appearing on the Fox News Channel, he appears on..........the Fox News Channel. The interview is in two parts with Megyn Kelly. Both are definitely worth watching but Kelly lands some serious haymakers in Part 2. In fact, when interviewed in the past, Shabazz has rarely, if ever, been anything other than aggressive.

In part 2, he is clearly on his heels. In particular, after Kelly asks him if he's ever called white people "Crackers". I'm assuming Kelly won't mind if I call her a "Fire-Cracker" in this video. Shabazz comes across as knowing he's trapped.


I have two mild critiques of Part 1. Shabazz tells Kelly that NBPP policy is that none of its members should be within 100 feet of a polling station. Earlier, he told Kelly that the Black Panther without the night stick did nothing wrong. Kelly could have called him on that based on the 100 ft. policy but didn't.

The other missed opportunity was Shabazz's claim that just because Samir Shabazz (nightstick guy) did something wrong shouldn't implicate the entire NBPP, which shouldn't have been sued. At that point, Kelly could have conceded that point while asking Malik why then the NBPP never responded to the complaint.

As I said, both are mild critiques which Kelly MORE than makes up for in Part 2.


One last clip, since it's relevant. Breitbart has unearthed a video of Malik Shabazz talking about the incident in front of other Panthers. See if you can spot any contradictions between what he told Kelly and what he said here.
