Rush: Obama Behind the Downed Malaysian Airliner


Erik Rush has already told the world, with no evidence whatsoever, that the Malaysian airplane that disappeared over the Pacific Ocean was done by Obama. Now he says Obama is behind the one that was shot down over the Ukraine as well. And the irony just drips off the screen.

Given the geopolitical climate and the duplicity of the Obama administration, we may never know the whole truth, but the fact is that Washington and Kiev would have had quite a bit to gain politically in the intentional downing of this jet and the implication of pro-Russian militias. With the world chafing at the cruel and criminal acts of Russia’s proxies in Ukraine, it would be far easier for the West to justify an escalation of the diplomatic and economic offensive against Russia. It would also not be the first time Ukrainian forces had employed “false flag” attacks to secure their political objectives, as they did during the street-fighting phase of their civil war and in the intimidation of Ukrainian Jews.

Oh, yes – I realize that this will be viewed by many as another anti-Obama far-right conspiracy theory, but I believe that it is at least as viable a proposition as the administration’s narrative.

In support of this, there has been far more empirical evidence potentially exonerating the Russian separatists – or at least supporting the “inadvertent downing” theory – than there is for a case of malicious disregard on their part, or of Russian aggression. The New York Post reported on Tuesday that “[T]he United States hasn’t found proof of direct Russian government involvement in shooting down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17,” while Washington intelligence officials and “sources” continue to blame Moscow for supplying weapons to the pro-Moscow forces, thereby creating the conditions that led to the deadly attack.

I’m sure that the irony of the innumerable instances in which the Obama administration created conditions that led to far more chaos and death is not wasted on the reader; but I digress.

In addition to the lack of evidence implicating Russia, there is even evidence emerging that calls into question the likelihood that the 777 was inadvertently downed by the pro-Moscow forces. Russia has claimed that U.S. and Russian satellite images not only show it to be unlikely that the separatist forces down the plane, but tend to implicate the Ukrainian army. Other reports out of the European press have suggested that MH17′s flight path was altered by Ukrainian air traffic control, placing it closer to the war zone than prudence would dictate, and that the flight had been shadowed by Ukrainian fighter planes shortly prior to its being shot down.

Much or all of this could be disinformation, but given the character and actions of this White House, the Svoboda Party in Ukraine and their collaborative acts in particular, failing to seriously consider it would be imprudent indeed. Even if this tragedy was an intentional act and the brainchild of parties within the Ukrainian government, apart from the direct involvement of Washington, the fact that the Obama administration might enthusiastically advance a false narrative in a case like this would speak for itself.

Funny how he doesn’t think Putin would engage in such misinformation. Yet the very same day this column was published, the Worldnetdaily published an article about the lies being told by Russian television. Also on the same day, the leader of the Russian separatist rebels admitted that they have Buk missiles. But nope, it’s always Obama to blame. He’ll even take the side of a fascist thug — oh I’m sorry, I meant “defender of Christianity” — like Vladimir Putin in order to make Obama look bad.

    Yes, that part is certainly true.

    “Much or all of this could be disinformation . . .”
    That’s one way to admit to making crap up.

    What a bizarre little universe this person and his followers must live in.

    Or maybe Obama just hates planes.

    I miss Tom Clancy. If he were still alive I’m sure we would have two or three good synonyms for false flag. Everything that Obama or anyone not deep in the conservative camp does now days is either a distraction, proof of the conservative position or a false flag. Its like playing mad libs with Hodor.

    Sure, because “inadvertent downing” is so much different than “malicious disregard” in this context. <cough>

    Consider the likelihood that Putin would not have secured the crash site if there were the slightest possibility it would reveal evidence that Ukraine shot down MH17.

    3-2-1. Time’s up!

    Erik Rush is extremely ridiculous.

    Obama did it with his trained sharks that shot it down with the frickin lasers on their frickin heads.

    Are we sure it wasn’t Saddam Hussein, in the Ukraine, with WMD? Or perhaps Hamas, under a false flag, with a model rocket kit bought at Kmart? Kim Jun Un, Dennis Rodman and a especially modified B’ball? Massed ranks of Mexico-Sino-Russian troops hiding out in national parks? Disease-ridden nine year olds in Michigan school buses on their way to a YMCA camp? …
    Come on RWNJs at least be a little bit creative.

    So far no scenario I’ve seen shows any benefit to any of the sides involved from shooting down a civilian airliner, except perhaps on the part of those favoring a much bigger war between US/NATO & Russia. Obama seems to be trying to dance around all sides of that, as usual, but at least when he’s on the “war” side of the hat Erik Rush may have a sliver of a point.

    But even if we assume a pro-WWIII faction in the CIA with forces on the ground in eastern Ukraine, trying to provoke a Maine/Lusitania/whatever moment, wouldn’t they realize how much more bang they could get for their buck if they had their tame nerds scan some passenger manifests and picked a target plane with more than one American on board?

    Well, wadda ya know! Reality does occasionally intrude upon the planet Wingnuttia!

    dan4 @ # 14: ″… their tame nerds….” Huh?

    By whom I meant the NSA and other cyberskilled snoop squads, the eavesdroppers of America, the Edward Snowdens only without political awareness or conscience or guts. Bush & Obama’s eyes & ears.

    You know, the people cross-checking our dialog here with our phone location records, credit card purchases, and media viewing habits in case some one with four degrees of separation from either of us gets anonymously accused of saying the US has no right to spy on everybody in the world. Those tame nerds.

    Actually, he’s right: given which direction the plane was pointed when it was shot down, if you draw a line from the rear of the plane in the opposite direction, that line would go around the Earth and back over North America, and you’d easily find that Obama was somewhere in the vicinity of that line. So yes, he was kinda behind the plane when it was shot down. Checkmate, atheists.
