Glenn breaks down some of the theories surrounding Malaysian Airlines flight MH370
http://www.glennbeck.com ^ | 3/17/14

Posted on 03/17/2014 9:03:54 PM PDT by Lucky9teen

Glenn is back from vacation, and he opened the radio program this morning with an overview of mystery surrounding Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. Why did it take several days for seemingly crucial information like the radar pings to be released? Why were the backgrounds of the pilots not immediately investigated? Why is the reporting of credible news sources being dismissed as conspiracy? After rehashing some of the facts in the case, Glenn chose to focus on a report from the International Business Times that sheds light on who was on this plane.

“I’m thinking to myself, one of two scenarios: One, this is a plane that is going to be used for something else entirely different… and two, who was on board? We have spent a lot of time talking about the two with the passports, who are definitely not terrorists. But who else was on board that plane or what else was on board that plane,” Glenn asked. “Last night it came to my attention, a group of 20 passengers that were on this plane that will blow your mind that you didn’t hear about.”

Last night, Glenn came across a story by Samantha Payne of the International Business Times entitled, “Malaysia Airlines Plane MH370 Latest Conspiracy Theory: Who were Freescale Semiconductor Experts on Board?” The article explains the value of the technological expertise the 20 employees from Freescale Semiconductor, a Texas-based technology firm that were on flight MH370 could have for groups with nefarious intentions.

“I want to read to you what the International Business Times is reporting,” Glenn said. “These people… were on the plane, however, the theory around it is being labeled as conspiracy theory. But just about everything in the world today is being labeled a conspiracy theory.”

The International Business Times reports:

On board Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 were employees from Freescale Semiconductor, a Texas-based technology firm.

They were based in several manufacturing sites in Kuala Lumpur and Tianjin, China; 12 of the employees were from Malaysia and eight were from China, a spokeswoman for the company confirmed.

Links between the plane’s mysterious disappearance and the radar-blocking capabilities of some of the aeronautical hardware technology produced by Freescale have been pushed by citizens news site Beforeitsnews.

“It is conceivable that the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 plane is ‘cloaked’, hiding with high-tech electronic warfare weaponry that exists and is used,” according to the site.

[…]

“The general public might not hear about how far the US has really come, because it is and should remain classified,” noted firearms expert Chris Sajnog, a former Navy Seal. “Other countries are still playing catch-up — but they’re closing the gap.”

Freescale Semiconductor has been developing microprocessors, sensors and other technology for the past 50 years. The technology it creates is commonly referred to as embedded processors, which according to the firm are “standalone semiconductors that perform dedicated computing functions in electronic systems”.

The passengers on board were engineers and other experts working to make Freescale Semiconductor chip facilities in Tianjin and Kuala Lumpur more efficient, said Mitch Haws, vice- president, global communications and investor relations.

“These were people with a lot of experience and technical background and they were very important people,” Haws said.

“It’s definitely a loss for the company.”

Read the entire report HERE.

“Now, the reason I want to bring this up is because I don’t know what happened… I don’t know if Freescale is actually making this technology. It appears that that is what they do. But again, it is classified,” Glenn said. “If they do make it… This is something that a country like Pakistan would grab. If we could make airplanes completely invisible and disappear, how great would that be if you’re a terrorist?”

Glenn tied this theory into another one that has been floated around all week, which involves the plane being landed intact in an area like Pakistan.

“Let me give you another theory and this is a theory that I was working on last week… I think that plane is grounded someplace,” Glenn said. “Then you start to realize, well, to land that plane, you have to now hide the plane. I mean, how do you land something like that without anybody knowing it? You have to be someplace like in Pakistan where you can land a 777 and then pull it into a hangar where nobody is looking. That’s really difficult to do.”

So what would be the endgame in a situation like that?

“Couple of things: One, what was on board in the cargo hold? Maybe there was a lot of cash… Maybe there was computers or some sort of software or hardware that… was being transported to China… Maybe it was the people on board… That would fit into Freescale,” he explained. “Or the third option… how much would you pay to have a plane that could be cloaked and knew how to fly the jet ways… [It] could be repainted to look like another 777 that you could fly it apparently for seven hours… without being detected… That’s an awful lot of effort for something. What is that asset? It was either something in the hold, in a seat, or the physical plane. And, possibly, two of the three.”

Part of what makes this story so sensational is the lack of reliable information available. One week after a plane mysteriously disappeared, the public still seems to have no idea what is actually going on.

“See, this is the problem. Once you lose trust as a government, once you lie to your people over and over again, this is what happens. Conspiracy theories go crazy because I don’t trust our government at all. Remember, they were the ones who rushed to say, ‘It’s definitely not terrorist.’ Well, how do you even know that,” Glenn concluded. “Because you rushed out to say that… I no longer can trust you. You could say, ‘We don’t think it’s terror. We hope it’s not terror. But the investigation is still ongoing. And we don’t even want to speculate.’ That would be the responsible thing to do. Instead, they’re acting like a talk show host… You’re in a position of authority. You probably should zip it.”

Conspiracy or not...it sounds somewhat plausible, if not out right scary.

Is it me, or does anyone else feel like they are living in a sci-fi movie?

Beck may be back from vaycay, but he’s nuttier than ever.

Freescale makes microcontrollers, chips that run everything from microwave ovens to the sensor that flips the screen in your iPad. They’re one of many suppliers, but to suggest that Pakistan would grab some semi chip designers or process engineers like this is just embarrassingly ignorant. People fly all over the place every day. Freescale has plants in China like every semi company.

Really, someone needs to get this guy some stronger meds.

I have to admit from the cargo angle that something could have been in the cargo area being transported by the people from Freescale Semiconductor. Maybe something real high tech that someone really wanted their hands on. Just another posibility among many.

I do not bash Glenn! He is the best reliable news source we have and anyone who bashes him are idiots. Sure, he has fun with some of the news, but that is because liberals are laughable news makers, but on the other hand, there are some liberals do make for serious news. Just watch the news.

Re 3

I agree,it is embarrassing. It would be hilarious if it was not such a tragedy. I am sure that the engineers involved were talented, and certainly very special, to their loved ones and friends - but come on - they really were not harboring cutting edge know how that couldn't be acquired by any other means. I believe they were mostly Quality and Packaging Engineers. Invaluable to any company trying to make a profit, but bringing six-sigma processes to Acmed's suicide belt factory, or teaching kaisan or ishikawa fishbone diagrams to Mohammed's Falafel stand ... really is not worth a hijacking. Yes, embarrassing.

Stolen plane or a ruse...made to look like a stolen plane, but a secret deal to get a plane somewhere. We only saw brief photos of anxious family, and one would wonder that there is so little news coverage of THAT.

Present info suggests that someone literally stole the plane. If so, why? There was either something or someone on the plane that someone or some organization wanted or else they wanted the plane itself. The latter scenario, if true, would suggest that someone intends to use that plane as a weapon... again and to have gone to that much trouble to obtain the plane, one would have to consider that they intend to deliver a WMD of some sort with it which is why israel is on high alert.

My question is, how did the NSA miss this, what with all their spying on everyone and stuff?

"These were people with a lot of experience and technical background and they were very important people," Haws said."It's definitely a loss for the company (Freescale)."

Where they important and valued employees? Yes.

Where they irreplaceable to the company? probably not.

Most smart thinking companies would never fly that many highly valued employees together on one flight.

My company never allows the President, CEO or Head of Technology together on any one flight.

If it is a terrorist attack by the pilot he has got more publicity than a bombing.

I will assume the ROP earnestly believes that these techs have all the brains to indeed come up with some form of cloaking be it a type of paint, a shrink wrap, holographic projectors etc.

In the eyes of devout Islamic followers absurdly intent of getting their hands on the ways and means to exact massive death especially since they have to work around so many obstacles such as the pesky Mossad offing all their scientists and blowing things up it matters not that this so called Freescale Cloaker exists, these members of the ROP will get it if they even think it will serve their goals.

Its possible this was the whole and complete mission, steal the plane, get it up high enough that even the supplemental o2 runs out, all crew passes out and THEN plane descends, at least I for one hope that was the successful plan, to just knock everyone out.

They land on a sufficient airstrip, probably with no intention of taking off, then are transferred by another means, or the plane does take off in a diversionary direction without the passengers and is left somewhere else hidden or even made to crash so it would be thought that all passengers are now dead.

But Iran has its slave labor force to create in their minds cloaked drones or aircraft so they can destroy Israel.

the only cargo we’ve been told of that I’ve seen is a comment the aircraft was carrying an inordinate number of lithium batteries (leading to some speculation that overheated exploding batteries could cause a mid-air explosion).

As to Beck’s theory about Freescale, well, the employees were based in Malaysia so it would be easier and more economical to kidnap them from the parking lot at work than during an iffy planenapping. And if the plane was depressurized as has been discussed, how did they keep those 20 alive?

I’m going to take a wild guess and suggest that it wasn’t what the plane was carrying - Beck didn’t go far enough - it was the technology OF the plane itself that is important. Why? For a little hands-on time for workarounds of Boing’s anti-hacking technology, in order to be able to weaponize ANY inflight 777. Farfetched? Recall Dec 2011, when Iran hacked one of our drones (which our CIA first denied) and had it fly itself into Iran and set down pretty as you please. but it’s just a wild guess, after all.

Seems to me the Freescale people were not designers but rather manufacturing type engineers.

I think the pilot just flipped his lid and went off on a psycho bender of an ending. The plane is now a submarine tomb on the ocean floor. Don’t even need a talk or TV show to state it either.

Wow!

It seems the name Glen Beck generates an auto-response of vitriol. I heard the same broadcast, and he only happened to be quoting another news source.

But for all the GB haters out there, I’m looking forward to seeing your alternative media network who’s sites doing better than the NYT is just 3 years, and media experts say at this rate the Blaze is growing, it may rival Fox within 4 years.

Or is it that a person has to agree with everyone one of your positions, else get bashed. I have disagreements with every conservative out there on something. Doesn’t mean I trash them all. Besides Beck says (and leans) more libertarian anyway.

I play the alternative talk media while working. I find myself more often switching over the Blaze radio whenever I hear a certain un-named talk host start prattling on about products from company ran by sodomite lefties who won’t spend an dime advertising on his program (yet has more cash on hand than the federal government). Or worse, as soon as some kid calls in - you know the next 5-10 minutes of air time is going to be wasted.

Did you hear about that situation where Children’s Services in Mass (DCF) all but kidnapped a child from her parents for medical reasons? I can tell you factually it was media pressure from the Blaze network that generated so much media attention the locals had to jump on board and get the kids back into her parents custody. In this Real American’s opinion, we need media outlets like that as much as we need the Second Amendment.

Yeah, so I find myself listening more and more to the Blaze for not just talk, but news. Beck isn’t the only one on the network. And with the ability to take the streaming video from the Blaze and go right to my TV via ChromeCast, I can GUARANTEE informative, quality entertainment for my family in the evening, and opposed to the rot-gut spewing from the other networks.

(Full Disclosure: I happen to be in the media business, so I have some inside baseball knowledge of this stuff)

I suspect Beck (and his investors) are going to make a killing as they are tapping into the market that Hollywood and Madison Avenue have left behind. No wonder Sarah Palin and even a bunch on the left are contemplating doing something similar. Look for it to be the new wave in media evolution. I predict that by 2020, broadcast media will be for live sporting events only, the rest you’ll watch on your own schedule.

So choose your poison: A cry-baby visionary hell-bent on building an alternative media empire, one who will retire on children’s book revenue, or a place where we can sit around a bitch while the world goes to hell in a hand basket.

Just my $.02

jimjohn - out.

Did you even watch that segment? Glenn was defending a boy, because he happened to like My Little Pony and the kids at school bullied him and the school didn’t care.

Had the boy said he was gay, the school would have protected him. But because he’s just a boy, who happens to like something perceived as “for girls only”, he’s bullied and made into a weirdo.

There’s nothing “homosexual” about the story, except maybe your perception and bias about it.
