On Wednesday, this article was "done" and my mouse hovered over the "Publish" button but I could not click it. I had that gnawing feeling in my gut that something was wrong, but I couldn't quite put my finger on it.
Two days later, it still feels wrong but I gotta publish something, dang it.
Our story begins with MonkeyWerx. Remember him from my December 2020 article US Military Air Traffic Quadruples and Everyone's Wondering Why? MonkeyWerx follows the air traffic around the world but in his August 17th YouTube video (see below) he was watching the famous footage from the Kabul airport we've all seen a hundred times. And it bothered him too.
We were told this crowd was desperate to come to America. But to MonkeyWerx and I, they looked nothing like desperate wannabe refugees. In fact, it appears they were happily fare-welling a plane they didn't want in their country. Oh...and you don't walk in front of nor behind jet engines, at least, not without getting hurt or burned. (Where's the mirage, the heat wave shimmers from the heat of the engines!?!) That's probably why this meme, which I actually believe is wrong, is making the rounds of social media.
When the crisis in Afghanistan first broke, we experienced it with our emotions but now we're returning to critical thinking and patriots have already caught the MSM recycling images from Syria on the assumption that Americans will never notice.
How else are they lying to us?
This morning Google had a wittle boo-boo. YouTube had a wittle oopsie. Google Home and Nest users couldn't adjust their thermostats or lights. Frankly, if you're stupid enough to let Big Tech control your home, you deserve what you get!
But I digress.
All the Google apps went down this morning...sorta'. The outage only affected some people in select places. Am I the only one with dubiously raised eyebrows???
According to the DailyMail, "There has been no explanation provided for today's difficulties." Later Google blamed it on, "internal storage quota issue."
Uh-huh. Apparently, they forgot to include "buy more servers" on last week's grocery shopping list. That just doesn't happen.
Speaking to the MailOnline, Jake Moore, a cybersecurity specialist for ESET claimed, "Outages like this are quite rare and when they do occur, they can cause a huge amount of chaos to millions."
No shit, Sherlock. What was your first clue!?
Mr. Moore went on to say, "This recent outage seems to have been connected to Google services that require a Google log-in where authorization is required. Although this can create a massive upheaval to those affected, it is often far safer to have a site down for a few minutes or even hours than allow malicious actors to exploit any vulnerabilities that may be in their services."
Wait. Is he trying not to say Google was hacked!?!
Horrors! Say it cannot be! The MSM has spent the last four weeks assuring us that "election fraud" isn't a thing because hacking a Dominion voting machine just isn't possible. Compared to Google,Dominion's "security" is like a Big Red Welcome Mat!
And how interesting that this outage went down on the very day Georgia's early voting began and the Electoral College is casting our votes...supposedly.
I love the poetic justice of it all.
"Holy crap!" my husband exclaimed.
"What!? What's going on?" I responded, peering over his shoulder at the flight tracking map on his screen.
"Usually there are no more than three military refueling tankers flying over the United States on any given night. I got to ride on one when I was a teen in Civil Air Patrol," he said. "But look! Tonight there are eleven refueling tankers in the air simultaneously. What the hell is going on!?!"
If military air traffic gets your motor going, your go-to guy is "MonkeyWerx" aka "MilSpecOpsMonkey." His profile describes him as a "Christian, Prayer Warrior, For God and Country, USAF Spec Ops Veteran, Texan, Aerospace and Defense Guru" and more specifically, "third generation military veteran who has spent more than thirty years in the aerospace and defense industry working on advanced weapons programs." That's good enough for me.
For the past three years, MonkeyWerx has been following military air traffic above the US, writing about it and making YouTube videos once a week...until now. Now he makes videos almost daily because there's just so damn much going on!
Military air traffic above the continental United States has quadrupled (at least!) since MonkeyWerx started his YouTube channel and he's quick to remind us that's only the air traffic we're allowed to see. The increase can't be simply explained away by bringing our men and women in uniform home from overseas so the question on everyone's lips is, "What the *$&@%!$# is going on!?!"
