Last night at a family gathering I was shown photos on an iPad of a ship blocking the Suez Canal, said to be costing companies involved $10 billion daily in commerce. I immediately thought that 1) in a world where fake “Climate Change” scientists want to shut down human economic activity, and 2) where fake “Covid-19” pandemic scientists want to shut down human economic activity, that this incident has to be deliberate. If not remedied quickly, it will have a devastating effect on human economic activity.
Lately I have been offered a whole set of opinions and links on the 2012 Costa Condordia disaster, the cruise liner that in January of that year, Titanic-style, hit a reef and endured a long gash down its side. A commenter who goes by “Harry’s Pretzel Mug” has been urging me to look into the matter. But HPM has been doing that himself and does not need my assistance! I suggested he write it up, and that I would publish it with full credit. I do not have the energy to write up every project sent my way, but when I do feel a surge, I have several preexisting projects I am going to work on. Others will either have to be by others, or sent to other sites doing this kind of work.
So go to the 9/19/2018 post written by Gaiassphere about the 1914 Shackleton Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, and called Peculiar Plots – Part 2 – Shackled by Tons of Ice. Gaia’s article is by itself worth the link, but I am directing you instead to comments thereunder submitted by Harry’s Pretzel Mug. Search the page and you will find maybe a dozen, some about the current Suez Canal grounding. I have only briefly skimmed some of the links, and leave it to the reader to do the same or plunge in. This post is not about Costa Concordia, but I will briefly summarize that event from Wikipedia, the primary source of LOOT, or the Lies of our Times.
The Costa Concordia, with 3,206 passengers and 1,023 crew aboard, was sailing off Isola del Giglio on 1/13/2012, on a seven-day cruise. At 21:42 it struck a reef in a charted area 800 meters south of the entrance to the harbor of Gighlio Porto. The initial impact damage was 8 meters (26 feet). The stripped steel was later found 92 to 96 meters from the main island. The captain, Francesco Schettino*, prior to the impact, had turned off the alarm system for the Concordias‘ navigator system. He was navigating by sight, as he knew the seabeds well. He turned too late to avoid the reef. He said that initially the ship was about 330 yards from shore. The ship’s first officer told investigators that Schettino had left his reading glasses in his cabin, and so could not make out the instruments on his own, seeking help from the officer. In other words, this was a bumbling idiot charged with the safety of 4,229 people. That is what we are expected to believe.
That’s really all anyone needs to do to cause an accident. I know when I am driving my truck, especially with young children on board, I frequently turn off all of the safety features and then close my eyes and hope for the best. After all, I am familiar with the roads around here. (Please learn to recognize tongue-in-cheek.)
In the end, the crew and passengers were safely evacuated, except that 33 died. Do you need to know more? I hope that Dave’s Pretzel Mug can expand on this, as I want to know, for real,
- Did the ship have any passengers aboard, or any more than a skeleton crew?
- Was it deliberately run into a charted reef in order to be able to scuttle it and file an insurance claim?
- And, as with Titanic, Lusitania, the Twin Towers, do insurers, intelligent, curious, and suspicious by nature, actually pay out the claims, and if it is done, is it a mutual scam?
The ship was never again used, having been towed to Italy for scrapping.
That is all I need to know about Costa Concordia. It’s all hidden in plain sight at Wikipedia.
The MV Ever Given, the 1,312′ ship that was until today blocking the Suez canal, is said to have encountered high winds that caused it so drift and eventually moor itself in deep sand on both sides of the canal. If Ab is right (see the comments here) the ship (built in 2018 and one of the largest cargo ships in the world) will be scuttled.
Wikipedia is right on top of things, telling us that the initial grounding took place at 7:40 a.m., and that it was on its way to Rotterdam and Tanjung Telepas [footnotes 8,11]. It was re-floated on the 29th of March, and freed and able to go on its own at 3:05 PM.
I am surprised that the ship was freed today, as this event had the makings of causing a major economic slowdown. Something like 10-13% of the goods shipped in the world go through Suez. The only alternative is a 5,500 mile journey around the Cape of Africa. the canal is immensely important to world commerce. I am wondering if the freeing of the ship today represents the outcome of internal struggles among competing powers, those who want to destroy the world economy, and those of nobler instinct.
*Francisco Schettino is currently serving a ten-year sentence for his role in this event, says Wikipedia. If does not say if he is serving this time on St. Helena.
