Maryland bridge collapsed after being struck by container ship

The Baltimore Bridge Collapse Is Going To Have An Enormous Impact On U.S. Supply Chains

When I awoke early on Tuesday morning, I was stunned to learn that the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore had collapsed. We are being told that it was a tragic “accident” and that there is no evidence that any foul play was involved. Hopefully that is true. But no matter how it was caused, this tragedy is going to have an enormous impact on U.S. supply chains. And of course this comes at a really bad time, because Houthi missile strikes in the Red Sea and low water levels in the Panama Canal have been putting a tremendous amount of strain on global supply chains recently.

Francis Scott Key Bridge
What's in a name,

How does this relate to a bridge coming down?

Francis Scott Key was the name of the man who wrote the Star Spangled Banner - eerily poignant for it to have fallen so hard into the river. Just like the Stars of Heaven mirroring that fall, the United States of America has been spiraling out of control into the dark abyss for some time now. She has lost her Way.

Let's start with the name Scott, and how it reflects the scenery of todays movements in strategy and war, and how it came about.

Winfield Scott was Lincolns General during the civil war, and his strategy to beat the Confereracy was called the Anaconda Plan. (Many refer to Pope Francis as a snake, more on him later).
With General Scott, his theory was to shed the least amount of blood, and to accomplish this he had four main KEYS/ the destruction of distribution and sustainability, domestic turmoil - where basic needs could not be met, (food clothes, etc.), and economic fall out.
By slowly squeezing, suffocating and surrounding the enemy like a snake, it indeed accomplished this, as for the bloodshed - it was the worst of American history.

Cutting off the ports and a blockade of 3500 miles of sea coast, plus the Mississippi River, (the great line of communication) all the way to the ocean, left the Confederacy without
the means to export their cotton nor import goods.
The economic isolation and the toll it took on agriculture and manufacturing left a devasting blow.

During peace times the south imported 30 million worth of goods, it was dependent on supplies for arms, shipping equipment, munitions, medicines, etc.

The North supplied the world with 75% of cotton worth over 200 million yearly. After the blockade that dwindled down to 25%.

Their commerce, manufacturing and agriculture had been stifled.

The merchant ships stayed away, - and had to find other ports.

Looking at the Baltimore tragedy, it fits in nicely for the Communist Chinese, the largest exporters of the world.

With the Key bridge out of commission, ships will have to go to other ports like Miami and Houston, for example, owned by Cosco, ( A Communist Chinese company).
China says if you don't allow us to be partners in your ports we will stop the goods, so their influence on trade policy in other countries is huge.
Also, they are building their own ports all over the world to save themselves from economic sanctions.

Oddly enough, (because the odds of this happening according to our own government reports) a collapse of a bridge probability is 0.0001 or 1 in ten thousand years, and just this past Feb. 22, 2024 a container ship plowed into the Lixinsha Bridge in Guangzhou China.

Chinas most important port (Like Baltimore)! Situated on the Pearl River, it's Maritime heritage stretches over 2000 years. It's part of the "old silk road".

Considered a major international trading hub, it was the first Chinese sea port open to foreigners in the 16th Century.
History shows they resisted the English Opium war 1839-42, but was occupied by the British 1856-61, and the Japanese after they bombed them in 1938-45.

Could this have been a tit for tat, time will tell.

Tellingly the Anaconda Plan against the Chinese is to disrupt their ports, so that the "Made in China," pipeline is curtailed.

The Naval War College, and their Anaconda Plan puts it in perspective.
To maintain superiority in the Asia pacific. I believe that's where the line "History does not repeat itself, But it Rhymes" by Mark Twain was mentioned.

Will Baltimore be able to withstand the "blockade" and the stresses of the inability to move goods? Food shortages, inflation, commerce, the dizzying merry-go-round and economic fallout. Will they be able to adapt?

At this time Chinas Investment Infrastructure Bank is more powerful than the US World Bank.
Chinas free trade agreement RCEP has usurped the US's Trans Pacific Partnership. Very helpful for China
To keep their goods flowing.

It seems as though the lawmakers always know what's going to happen in the future, as their Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, and the BIP or Bridge Investment Program, are offering up billions of dollars in "programs and awards" for everything to do with "Bridges."
Even replacements.

And if you heard Pope Francis recently talking about bridges, as he couldn't use the word enough, it fits in nicely with his "Anaconda Plans". He has several of them in the works

The Pope even has his own Infrastructure Plan.
For the Infrastructure Plan he calls for Bridges to be built, (sounds like the Chinese Belt and Road Initiative).
To "Build Back Better" communities, in his " culture of encounter".

As the Pope puts it "the bridges are made by God with the wings of angels so that men can communicate... The bridge is for human communication."

Just ask Putin about that when his bridges were taken out, his men lost all lines of communication, as the optics and electrical ran through the bridges. (The Ukrainian attack on the Black Sea)

He has even signed an agreement with Bejing appointing Bishops in the Chinese Churches, that pay allegiance to the Chinese State.

Pope Francis, has had the government of Ukraine appoint a mass number of his enterage to high level positions, which some called a level of penetration of the "Political Olympics."

Different facets of the Orthodox Church are maneuvering for control, and the Ukrainian Orthodox Church has been burned by him many times.
They have been asked to change their name, and are not happy about it.

Speaking of building bridges and Anaconda Plans, The Popes very own "madness" has amassed 500 million acres from the Andes to the Atlantic ocean, seizing territories from 8 sovereign countries!
Brazil says it's been taken over by "madness, a madman".
The signatures to this evil absurdity are the Amazon Cooperation Treaty the United Nations COP-21.

He has actually waged war against these countries, defending himself by affirming, " The Forest is in the heart of the Pope" calling it Anaconda Territory. (This is NOT a joke)!

Meanwhile Russia is so involved with Venezuela. Putin's Russia remains in control of the crude oil, and military bases, all of which are a part of the AAA Corridor or "Anaconda Territory"
which the Pope believes are his.

What does this mean for the Pope and Putin, will they be fighting over the territory.

More to come.

Kremlin says visit by Venezuela's Maduro is in works

MOSCOW, April 2 (Reuters) - The Kremlin said on Tuesday that a visit by Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro to Russia was being prepared, a sign of continued close ties between the two major oil-producing nations which are both at odds with the United States.

Tid bit:

In February 2019, China alongside Russia vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution calling for new presidential elections in Venezuela. During the crisis in Venezuela, China supplied riot-control equipment to Venezuelan authorities combatting the protests in Venezuela.

The Rest of the Story with Lara Logan


Who is Laura Logan?

• Why is the Biden Administration telling the country when his own Intelligence Agencies are telling him it is? • Those who are on the inside, critical infrastructure, DHS, and Intel agencies know are telling Lara this was a cyber attack on the critical infrastructure of the US • The I-94 corridor on the eastern seaboard is literally what connects the North and South • This was a brilliant strategic attack on one of the most important supply chain in America • Everything that you need for the economy to move has been shut down for 4-5 years— Bridge was built specifically to move hazardous material - fuel, diesel, propane gas, nitrogen, highly flammable materials, chemicals and oversized cargo that cannot fit in the tunnels - that supply chain now crippled. • They strategically targeted these load-bearing pylons. • This is called death by 1,000 cuts — They are “bringing the US to its knees step by step from within.” • 100% Lara says someone hacked into the GPS System and re-royed the ship. —— they did it at night because most of the crew is asleep. • One of the Intel Analysts she spoke to said this…. “They have figured out how to bring us down. As long as you stay away from the teeth of the US military, you can pick the US apart. We are arrogant and ignorant - lethal combination. Obama said they would fundamentally change America and they did. We are in a free-fall ride on a roller coaster right now - no brakes - just picking up speed.” • She called out Anons for dismissing the seriousness of the bridge collapse… —— Just to be clear, I think she’s speaking about a few specific individuals with big followings who’s trying to downplay it. Not anons imo.


nailed it and she I believe is spot on with her assessment. This was a strategic move attacking our infrastructure.

Massive container ship loses power near NYC’s Verrazzano Bridge days after Baltimore Key Bridge disaster

A massive container ship lost power in the waters around New York City and came to a rest near the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge Saturday night — less than two weeks after failure on another massive cargo vessel caused it to collapse Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge.

The US Coast Guard confirmed that its Vessel Traffic Service received a report that the 89,000-ton M/V Qingdao lost propulsion about 8:30 p.m. as it traversed Kill Van Kull waterway — the shipping lane between Staten Island and Bayonne, New Jersey.

An image shared on X by John Konrad, CEO of maritime-focused news outlet gCaptain, shows the 1,100-foot Qingdao floating uncomfortably close to the span that connects Brooklyn and Staten Island.

Konrad said the Qingdao was being escorted by three tug boats, but needed three more to bring it under control.

The vessel was reportedly positioned “just north” of the bridge.

“Coast Guard Vessel Traffic Service New York received a report from the M/V Qingdao around 8:30pm, Saturday, that the vessel had experienced a loss of propulsion in the Kill Van Kull waterway,” a Coast Guard spokesperson told The Post in a statement Sunday.

“The vessel regained propulsion and was assisted to Stapleton Anchorage by tugs.”

The Kill Van Kull waterway is a narrow 3-mile long tidal strait separating Newark Bay — home to the Pork Newark Container Terminal — and Upper New York Bay, and is one of the Port of New York and New Jersey’s busiest waterways.

Despite the unsettling optical illusion, the image instantly brings to mind last month’s deadly Francis Scott Key Bridge disaster in Baltimore, in which six construction workers were killed when cargo ship Dali rammed one of the 1.9-mile bridge’s supports, sending it tumbling into the Patapsco River.

The collapse ground maritime transit to a halt in the vital Port of Baltimore. Speaking on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday morning, Maryland Gov. Wes Moore said it was “realistic” that normal operations would resume on the waterway as early as May

“It is an aggressive timeline, but we are going to work around the clock to make sure we hit this timeline,” Moore said.

Alarmingly, the Dali also suffered loss of propulsion leading up to the Baltimore crash.

The Qingdao is registered in Malta and owned by French shipping and logistics company CMA CGM. It was bound for Norfolk, Virginia at the time it lost power.
