    Editor’s Note: Hackers have infiltrated and shut down hundreds of companies in important industries across the country. A stealth cyberwar is taking place, with good guys and bad guys cloaked in the politics of denial. It is perhaps true that the entire digital infrastructure is vulnerable… so who or what will be next? What would happen if millions of bank accounts or Internet passwords were shut off or rendered inoperable?

    Was a Major Air Traffic Control Center Near Washington Just Hacked?

    by Melissa Dykes

    Just yesterday, The New York Times reported that a “technical problem” an an air traffic control center in Leesburg, Virginia near Washington was responsible for 462 flight delays and 476 cancellations at airports all over the East Coast this weekend.

    The Air Route Traffic Control Center is one of 22 in the country. According to Wikipedia, this particular center covers the Washington/Baltimore, New York and Philadelphia metropolitan areas just to name a few. It handles some five million flights a year and is the third busiest air traffic control center in the U.S.

    Throughout the story, NYT continually refers to the “problem”. Other outlets covering the story called it a “malfunction” or a “glitch”. The FAA’s official Facebook page referred to it as an “automation problem” to be more specific.

    At the time of writing this, they are still “continuing to diagnose the cause” of the “problem”.

    So… is it another hack?

    It’s not like anyone official would tell us anyway, but it follows that it might be considering lots of these weird “glitches” and “technical problems” keep happening on a mass scale lately.

    Last month, on the exact same day, the New York Stock Exchange, United Airlines and the Wall Street Journal all experienced “technical glitches” too. What a coincidence.

    You know, it’s not as if they’d announce a cyberwar on the nightly mainstream news or anything. (On a side note, there still hasn’t been any official word — just conjecture — on why that plant in China recently blew up either…)

    When the NYSE, the WSJ, and United Airlines were all coincidentally hit with “technical glitches” on the same day last month, authorities did make sure to reassure us that it definitely wasn’t hackers.

    We’ll probably hear the same thing this time, too.

        For now its entertainment
        My PC had it worked on, only used it once, then it sat, figured if i didnt turn it on no problem, then one night i noticed it was on but screen was dark, so unplugged it, tried watching NOAA satellite vid feed when we had last storm and the computer was screwed,,, couldnt even function, kept getting a screen to call tech support at Oceantic Time Warner,
        I flipped, took a framing hammer to the whole thing keyboard screen and all and recycled it into a iddy biddy box full o plastic and circut board pieces,,,
        Will NEVER own another windows based device of any sort and am looking to ditch my iphone too, i just really like having my tunes on one device with everything else.

        • Lol, you should have been around for Windows 3.0.. I have been using this free computer my son gave me because he gets free upgrades from where his wife works and it has Windows XP. Bill the faggot eugenicist baby killing Gates sent me a popup message a couple years ago saying they will no longer support XP and I better upgrade to windows Vista 7 8 9 or 10 but guess what? He is a fvking liar as I still get regular updates for security and this old heavy Dell boat anchor just keeps on running. I of course have been fighting comps since the late 80’s so I know how to keep everything clean and running in top form. Windows XP and 98 were Bill’s best op systems hands down.

          • You can still keep Windows XP up to date with updates, you just have to fake being a cash machine (autotellers and such), they still support them.

            Forget how you do it but you can find instructions on the internet.

          • My laptops have XP, and they continue downloading updates. I keep XP because I have some old DOS and Windows software that won’t run on my current computer. If one major piece of software I use every week ever gets ported to Linux, or I find a suitable Linux replacement, I will ditch Windows and switch to Linux.

            I just noticed that the dark-haired robot woman in the ad at the left doesn’t seem to have a belly button.

      3. this is no surprise.. why are people acting like this could never happen ?


        • They spent the equipment maintenance budget on hookers and blow.

      4. Fear porn. All conjecture, no facts.

        Might as well be an article about the Loch Ness monster.

        • This is correct! It was a solar storm that cause the downing. If you read about they were keeping other planes out side of the area and not letting them fly in the zone. The solar flare did the same thing a couple months ago in New Jersy. Check out Suspicious Observers on YouTube

      5. I was FORCED (after stalling and resisting for several YEARS) to agree to a “direct deposit” for my deceased husband’s annuity check from the federals. I was informed that if I continued to refuse to direct deposit, the check would no longer come to me in my mail box and after 90 days the account would be “scrubbed”.

        So………… now that the government has managed to get most of the people who get SS or even their pay “direct deposited” into a “banking institution”…. we are literally at their mercy!!!

        They HAVE THE CONTROL of the money….. they can shut the faucet off any time they want… those computer “glitches” are the death knell for millions of people.

        Isn’t that just the most CONVENIENT state of affairs?

        • If it were me I would be at the bank every day the check is deposited and remove the cash physically.

          Fuck ’em.

          • That’s what I do. Both my pension and SS checks are required to be direct deposited, so twice a month I go to the bank and remove all in cash except what I need to cover electronic bills.

        • And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.

        • Unfortunately, this is how many business’s do Payroll these days.
          Up until 3 years ago I was getting the standard weekly paper check, then the company decided to go ‘electronically’. They claim it is cheaper to do this route instead of issuing out paper forms.
          I can see their point of view on cost, but I do not like my earnings being deposited in that manner.

          There is no alternative, either you go along with this payroll system, or you don’t work for the company – period.

          I avoid any and all types of on-line transactions with funds. I avoid using my debit card when possible and I have tossed away my credit cards.

          In due time, everybody will be included in the “electronic Payroll system”. As is, it seems most people are used to swiping their cards, even on something that may be worth as little as a soda pop.

          Their way of introducing and providing a habit for the future of a cashless society. At least this is how I pretty much determine the logic behind it.

          • Also factor in the bank gets a cut every time the card is used. THIS is the main reason there is a big push behind cashless transactions. These parasites have no bounds to their insatiable greed.

          • See you HR person. I do Payroll, and there is an option to stay with printed checks. But it is a pain, since it’s a few extra steps and then having to get it signed by a corp officer. Doing it electronically, is pretty easy, and in our company you can spread your pay across five banks if you want to.

        • That’s nonsense. If you have no bank account, you can still get a paper check.

          If you have a bank account, you have to have electronic deposits.

          Issuing a paper check costs the taxpayer about $10 per check. As late a 1990, before unifying computer systems, it cost about $100. Unless you are going to accept a reduction in your check to defray that expense, take your problem down the road. It’s a non-existent problem.

          And, so what if you get a check or a deposit? Your check is going to be deposited at a bank, either paper or electronic, even if you sign it over to the convenience store down the street, it’s still going to go through a bank. Do you think your check is going to circulate through the economy with dozens of ‘Pay to the Order of…” endorsements on the back?

          • Those that do not have a bank account for direct deposit.
            The Bank Issuer will send out a Debit Card to the employee so they can retrieve their funds.

            • There you are, another simple way around all the angst.

      6. They (the governments)are the ones causing the so called glitches just incase they need to take control. “Citizen you must comply!”

      7. they try to hack my PC…they will have to deal with hot lead from my ventilation team.

      8. and he also has power to call down FIRE from heaven in the sight of men” …. hmm maybe that fire is a laser from a sat. …. oh and who is able to make war with the beast? even if you devalue your currency you get zapped from the heavens …who could make war with that even if you have three billion ppl. LOL

      9. My Guns and ammo are EMP Proof. No glitches there.


      10. Check out with what David Hodges just posted. Is this what my scientist friend is concerned about. Since i read the book One Second After and we now literally working and functioning in the SHTF EVENT HORIZON. If what Hodges just posted were to happend that fact that it was according to Hawk.. “and MMV attack” from the White Hat Breakaway Civiliation, that is allied with 25% of the Breakaway Navy. Type One Civilization, Navy based space based weapons. Then WW3 has now begun.


        S..it is getting really serious, and all sh..t is bout to bust out loose. I keep in my mind everyday that 3-5,000,000/49 states is not a good survival figure. This is bloody hell on Earth in a crap shoot and one hell of a Cluster F…K to live through. Some of us preppers are even lucky if we even make through the first 24-72 hrs. I warned families, Husbands 25-30 miles from Home with the Wife 15 miles from home with Russian and Chinese soldiers picking up your kids at school and basically putting out schools in lockdown to do what they call lure in the parents. Then again, what do i know. I have been advised to lay down the crack pipe and to seen mental help. You see my fellow shtf-effers. Only the mentally ill are the non preppers. Anyone who does not prep and cant see that not growing food in Amercica and have government attacking family farms and having ships bringing in food from third world contries was done on purpose to set us up. Yet the idiots breed the women and then they are having more babies. This is how i define mental illness. If you dont prep, your mentally ill.

        The shooting war between factions have now begun, the war is now getting ready to heat up to ww3. Ukraine communist from the capital just fired on the Russian communist on Putins side. Then again???




        What the hell do i know, i worry too much, Government love me.

      11. This also coincided with the arrival of a solar filament CME*. That is not good news either, as it was not a very big one as these things go.

        *Coronal mass ejection

      12. Dear Melissa, I’ve got the scoop… The software was unstable in a live environment and it appears didn’t have all the bugs worked out of it before it was implemented. My co-workers and Air Traffic Controllers say this company is “hiding” the real issue. The FAA just put out a “well spun” press release to hide the truth.

      13. What to expect when the EMP hits.


        Is the my scientist friend really on to something?

        Population divided by 3-5 Mil equals 50-100k per state.

        3-5,000,000/49 States=100,000 survivors per state. Houston Tx has 5,000,000+ people.

        Calculate the estimated deer and Elke, and Critter Animal populations, re crunch the numbers and you come up with something similar. If the climate calapses from Nibiru, then the grass and trees will die out calpaseing animal populations. Hodges is correct, the violence will be horrific. No, that wont happen. My scientist friend is a joker. Okay, lets just see what he really knows. I bet your azz, that is 10000% on the money.

        Even if the EMP or economic calapse does not get us, the environment will calapse, the food crops will fail, the population will reduce by 90% naturally by nature, ” quoted by the scientist”. The women will have a tought time in this one. I feel bad for them, they are really in deep sh….t. I am a scientist and i have been told this is going and even if it does not happen in 2-3 yrs, its still going to happen eventually. We only have 70 yrs left of Planet Earth, then we have to leave the plantet. Thats why they have bases on Mars. Mars if further from the Sun and is sustainable.

        The bad smell of decaying dead bodies in you areas.

        You have to leave you city area, the dead bodies will make the air unbreathable so people will be fleeing thier neighbourhoods and running from the city areas. Any of you preppers on this site that have breakaway locations, more power to you. You are in the 3-5 mil survivors. You made it, you survived. That it folks who dont prep, keep having more and more babies, the loosers like me will survive, you non preppers will become food.

        Not only will you be hunted by the Mexican tatooed up gansters, the Un, the Russian, the chinese, etc, the black dred Lock, the wild cats in the wild that run out of deer to hunt will be coming to the city areas to hunt humans for food. Its coming right down to this, like Dr. Garrow says, Guns and bullets is the key, Like Selco said, not food, or water. It must be guns and bullets. Am i worried, yes, but not as worried as i use to be. I am 3-5,Mil%-er.



        Mathematics is still accurate, just crunch the numbers, besides bayou water does not taste that good without water filtration.

      23. Today the public only hears a fraction of the world wide range of technology. Iran is teaching through technology text books how to defeat us and possibly our own government through common core. One thing is for sure, they test to make sure it works!

      24. I have a question that none of the articles ever answer.

        “What does the nuclear weapon YIELD need to be, in order to cause the whole grid to be fried?

        I don’t have a precise answer to this, but I do have a general idea, the yield needed and where to place such a weapon. I would have to dig out my old books, that are buried in storage, on the subject that have the calculations to figure it out with accuracy. They are not classified either.

        The problem with this type of article is it doesn’t answer my question. You may not care and assume that any nuclear device could do this type of damage. You would be wrong. The technology that we are pretty sure N Korea has can NOT cause this level of damage. A 20KT bomb (I’m being generous with their ability) just doesn’t pack enough of a EMP punch to do this. If detonated high enough in the atmosphere, we would see a bright flash and some localized EMP effects. More likely the N Koreans haven’t detonated more than a 10 KT weapon. (S Korea est.) China estimated at most 16 KT.

        Gary Smith’s map on Dave Hodge’s site has a single weapon at 30, 120 and 300 miles. You need a fairly large weapon to do this, in the Megaton range, NOT Kiloton.

        Go to YouTube and search “Five men at atomic ground zero” This was a 2KT at 10,000 feet. Almost two miles.

        On July 8th 1962 11:00:09 Honolulu time a 1.4 MT detonated at an altitude of of 250 miles. It was about 900 miles away from Hawaii (I think Kauai) and it knocked out several hundred street lights and a telephone microwave exchange, cutting off Kauai telephone service to the rest of the Hawaiian islands.

        Caveat; I have no idea about Super EMP devices, so ALL of my knowledge is using conventional nuclear weapons.

        BTW, the technology to go from KT to MT is much harder to develop.

        • When you have puny little nukes, like NK or the Islamic world, you have to swarm the targets.

          Look for multiple EMP bursts spaced maybe 400 miles apart, that’s the coverage, and then some redundancy, to make sure.

          It’s the same logic behind why we have thousands of nukes. Hit twice, then bounce the rubble.

      25. I forgot an important point. Only a few nation could pull this off at all and we know who they are. A massive retaliatory strike would follow. I’m pretty sure Obama wouldn’t have any choice, and if he didn’t do it, the Generals would have him removed and Biden would do it.

        I hear some of you now saying that the Generals couldn’t/wouldn’t do this. I have some swampland to sell to those of you who would say this.

        • When you fight for what you believe in, there’s a ghost always trying to make you unpopular. Disregard the ghost or live in fear. The word “Nuke” is fear of control. Iran would be toast compared to our 10’s of thousands Nukes so all I see here is a Political fear factor of acceptance.Our Satelites monitor’s 24/7. Not just us but the World is being deceived into believing things that are not really happening. If a New World Government, it will come into power by “fear”. N. word not allowed or else= fear. Fag word not allowed or else= fear. Corailed and rounded-up by fear. 1968 DbL.Tour 4th Infantry.

          • The muslims are not Russian or Chinese communists. They are fanatics. They’ll set off a nuke in San Francisco just to get at the Great Satan, and gladly look forward to the paradisal virgins that await them.

            It’s not about semantics.

            • Thats a Home Land Security subject which is also observed and controlled by Muslims. Van Jones, Valorie Jarrett and Microsoft queen Bill Gates all came out and gave us true warning back in 2008,Top down,Bottom up. A weak force cannot fight a majority which is why they form all races together to get a majority by opening borders and making deals with Communist countries. No Nuke will be needed if they continue to filter in one side and divide and conquer the other.
