      https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/30/politics/directed-energy-attacks-senate-intelligence/index.html

      They may have removed it, but a similar piece yesterday claimed Russia “may be responsible”.  Essentially, they are claiming that some kind of “energy attacks” which we have no clue as to the origin of and are invisible… are attacking U.S. officials.

      I mean, seriously, is it the aliens?  The lizard people?  This is some shit worthy of Alex Jones.

      They said the Cubans were beamingmysterious rays at American diplomats. Absolute groundless speculation.

      Is how damn obvious it is.  They may as well say Russia and China are building a death star.

      I heard something similar on the radio today.

      If this isn’t a step too far, then there is no hope for the American public.

      There are Microwave weapons and they do exist.

      Here is more info

      What are radio frequency weapons and how do they work?

      A radio frequency weapon uses radio waves at power levels high enough to cause electrical disruption.

      Microwaves (high-frequency radio waves) are usually preferred, so this type of device is sometimes called a High-Powered Microwave, or HPM weapon.

      Radio frequency weapons also overlap with Electromagnetic Pulse, or EMP weapons, which emit a powerful burst of radio waves in all directions.

      I don’t buy into the logic US is guilty of everything while Russia is completely innocent or vice versa.

      The brain shrinking pop-up ads and Tony Blair’s mullet hair are enough to make a reader feel they are under an attack by CNN. I knew years ago that CNN was working on manipulating human brains when they increased the frequency of visuals. It actually calmed down one of our neighbor’s autistic children. “Wow… look at that”, we all said with careful interest.

        The DNC “big tent” excludes Nina Turner but includes John Kasich.

      ..about a year or so to see if it would stick,and it didn’t seem to.

      They must be running out of ideas if they’re trying this one again.

      Watch Crophead run away with it though.

      Invisible weapons! Cuz Murdakkkastan isn’t deadly enough with the GUNPIDEMIC! Just what we needed.

      I know that today is the first, but did CNN mistake the month?

      They seem to be falling behind, but a whole month is a lot.

      One segment they can call “News”. News and only news.

      Another segment they can call “Conspiracy Theories”. If a conspiracy theory one day is proven true, then they can move it to the “News” segment.

      But CNN likes to mix news and conspiracy theories into the same story and call it “news”. That way, the stories get more gasps from their audience.

        Think of it as a theater,@gordyfl.The test is how many rear ends are placed in the seats.

        Real news consists of complicated,arcane legislative maneuvers or foreign policy stories it takes a history aficionado to know about thoroughly.No theater there.

        The media could,of course,educate people,but that is complicated,costly and might be boring to many.

        So they fill those seats any way they can.Tabloid stuff sells best.

      @jonlp

      Here is the problem – there is no conclusive evidence that any such thing was used, let alone who might have used it.  Such things might very well exist – but targetting U.S. officials who are unaware?  No radiation detected by any of our toys?

      The “invisible, mysterious, directed energy attacks” are unproven – and would require quite the leap of faith to swallow it whole.  So until or unless there is some kind of evidence to support such a thing, it is bull shit.

      It is the kind of bull shit that this “Senate Intel committee” (no committee that includes Rubio should include the word intel) is wasting time and money on.

      Like many other things – they present neither proof nor evidence.  The day when i ever considered taking a politicians word for something is long, long gone.  The intelligence agencies might be even worse.

        When they were calling it a Sonic attack I was saying to myself it was probably a microwave weapon based on the symptoms and how they can be deployed. Also they were targeting the right people in Cuba considering embassies are often used as spy nests.

      There is ample recordings in Cuba that it was crickets.   Any thing that comes out of the mouths of the US pentagon and it’s servants in the government are, lies until proven to be facts. I have never heard them use facts ever

      That occurs to me is that they are lying – possibly for the purpose of convincing us to hate the “guilty Nations governments” or they are looking for more funding.

      If anyone actually had such a weapon and was using it here in the U.S. – I’m pretty sure we’d be able to find them damn quick.  Unless they have the equivalent of a microwave handgun – even then, it would not prove difficult to track the radiation.

      Invisible attacks?  Unlikely.  But they don’t have to prove things, some hack at CNN says it and plenty of people just swallow it whole.  The other side of the Alex Jones coin.  Might be we should consider how likely these things really are.

      I’m not saying it’s impossible – but i am saying until there is something resembling proof I don’t believe a word of it.

      all are real things that everyone is trying to make weapons of. All have reasons why they don’t work, don’t work yet, don’t work as well, or are otherwise impractical. (for now) Rather than talk about them now, leave it to SF writers and talk about stuff that’s out there killing and maiming today.

      This is similar to the sort of weapon (“allegedly”) used to bring down Wellstone’s plane. Darth Chaney and the gang probably parked an EMP weapon under the approach path into Eveleth, MN airport- and it fried the flight gear in Wellstone’s plane, a Beechcraft KingAir. Visibility wasn’t awesome that day, but a VFR only Cessna immediately went up searching to wreckage…so doubtful weather was the cause. And Beech’s parent company is Raytheon.  They’d know how to fry its avionics after Wellstone voted against the Iraq war. Never been proven, but wouldn’t surprise me.
