Newly released FAA records only deepen mystery around ‘jetpack man’ sightings over Los Angeles as FBI continues probe

Inexplicable sightings of a man flying 3,000 feet above LA in a jetpack have only become more puzzling with the release of FAA records on the incident, showing pilots reporting other unidentified craft to confused air controllers.

Government records obtained by the Drive – including an FAA report and more than 15 minutes of audio between aviation officials discussing the bizarre sighting last month – reveal that air traffic controllers received reports of an unfamiliar helicopter near the area the jetpacker was spotted above Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), as well as a cluster of “party balloons.”

The helicopter was called into LAX after it was observed by a different air controller, identified by the Drive as an “offsite FAA individual.” Both officials appear baffled.

Offsite FAA individual: “Did you call in a helicopter over there to help you?”

LAX tower: “No.”

Offsite FAA individual: “I see a [helicopter]. There’s something at 600 feet right up there, looks like a helicopter.”

LAX tower: “Right underneath that Southwest arrival?”

Offsite FAA individual: “Yeah, but that 10 mile final is literally north of me and I’ve been scouring it, I don’t see anything.”

LAX tower: “I, I don’t know.”

The FAA document – known as a Mandatory Occurrence Report (MOR), submitted when air controllers witness certain safety violations – provides a brief summary of the jetpack sighting, noting the first pilot to witness the man “did not report making evasive maneuvers.” The report also indicates that a Los Angeles Police Department “air support” craft was notified of the situation, though it is unclear if that accounts for the helicopter spotted near LAX.

Prepared by the Southern California Terminal Radar Approach Control Facility, or TRACON, the 15 minutes of audio released by the government also contains mention of “party balloons” seen at a similar altitude to where the ‘jetpack man’ was first spotted. It remains unknown whether the jetpacker was merely mistaken for the balloons, or if the pilot actually witnessed a separate object.

Almost immediately after the jetpacker was seen over the airport on August 30, the FBI’s Los Angeles field office launched a probe. But apparently just as perplexed as the pilots and air controllers who first reported the sighting, the agency put out a call to the public requesting information on the high-flying daredevil within days of the incident, suggesting he “[threatened] US airspace.”

The bureau refused to disclose certain documents for the Drive’s Freedom of Information request, as its investigation is ongoing, but if the FAA disclosures are anything to go by, the probe may raise more questions than it answers.

“Spineless Speaker Paul Ryan Blocked Us at Every Turn” – Matt Gaetz Goes Off on Paul Ryan After Declassified Documents Show Hillary Hatched Russia Hoax (VIDEO)

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) joined Lou Dobbs on Tuesday following the release of newly declassified documents that reveal Hillary Clinton hatched the Russiagate hoax to pin the DNC “hacking” onto Trump.

Gaetz and his cohorts Devin Nunes, Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows, and several others were speaking out against the hoax back in 2017 but Speaker Paul Ryan purposely ignored them.

Rep. Matt Gaetz: Remember Lou, it was myself and Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows, back in 2017 who said we needed a special counsel to investigate the activities of Hillary Clinton. And had we done that we would have know what John Ratcliffe just told us well before. But we had the spineless Speaker Paul Ryan who blocked us at every turn. He acted like we were the tinfoil hat wearing crazy Republicans. But the reality was that we were telling the American people the truth. People on Washington on both sides of the aisle were lying to the American people and now we know exactly where the Russia hoax began.

Speaker Paul Ryan was a horrible failure.

Asian markets point to mixed open as investors await U.S. presidential debate

September 29, 2020

By Pete Schroeder

(Reuters) – Asian shares were poised for a mixed opening ahead of the first U.S. presidential debate and ongoing stimulus talks in Washington.

Australian S&P/ASX 200 futures were down 0.94% in early trading, while Japan’s Nikkei 225 futures were up 0.02%. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index futures were up 0.72%.

E-mini futures for the S&P 500 were up 0.04%.

The first debate between former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump, set to begin at 9 p.m. EDT (0100 GMT), is seen by some political analysts as Trump’s best chance to upend a race where he has consistently lagged in opinion polls.

“Following the exuberant start to the week, a sober tone descended on risk markets ahead of the first U.S. presidential debate, with caution about the outlook prevailing,” wrote Australia and New Zealand Banking Group in an analyst note.

Also looming over markets is lingering hopes the U.S. could adopt further economic stimulus. U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi unveiled a new, $2.2 trillion compromise relief bill in a bid to give new life to flagging negotiations with the White House.

There were optimistic signs Tuesday when U.S. consumer confidence saw its biggest rebound in 17 years.

The economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic was underlined later Tuesday, when Disney announced plans to lay off roughly 28,000 U.S. employees from its theme parks division.

Investors will also be looking at Wednesday’s ADP National Employment report, a precursor to official U.S. employment figures out Friday. China is also set to publish fresh manufacturing data.

The Asian markets opened after U.S. equities fell slightly hours before, ending a three-day rally as investors held tight before the debate. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.48%, the S&P 500 lost 0.48%, and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 0.29%.

MSCI’s gauge of stocks across the globe shed 0.24% following broad declines in Europe and Asia. U.S. Treasury yields traded within a tight range as investors avoided large moves, settling down slightly.

The U.S. dollar was also down slightly in advance of the debate, hitting one-week lows against the euro and Swiss franc. The dollar index fell 0.3%.

Spot gold gained 0.9% to $1,896.96 per ounce, while U.S. gold futures settled up 1.1% at $1,903.20.

Oil prices were also down on caution ahead of the debate and looming coronavirus concerns. U.S. crude fell 4.01% to $38.97 per barrel and Brent was at $40.83, down 3.77% on the day.

You Can Now Have A Tiny Home Office 3D-Printed In 24 Hours

As the new workplace normal moves rapidly towards remote work, demand for smaller, smart satellite workplaces has increased. Not too long ago, we noted how some Americans were shelling out as much as $30,000 for tiny home offices in their backyards. 

Now, a California-based startup, called Might Buildings, is 3D printing tiny offices (about a 350 square foot structure) in just 24-hours, reported Spectrum News 1 Los Angeles.

While we showed other companies, such as Colorado-based Studio Shed, using traditional labor and materials, Might Buildings uses synthetic stone 3D printed under UV light to make complex shapes and structures. 

“We developed a 3D printing technology that allows us to build and manufacture buildings faster and more efficiently than traditional construction,” said Natalia Dobrynina, head of sales for Mighty Buildings. 

Might Buildings says the building plans are pre-approved for any county in California. 

“Depending on your access to your site, we could use a crane to pick it up and drop it into your backyard,” Dobrynina said.

And if it is not a tiny home office people are seeking, then there’s the ability to transform it into a tiny home and generate rental income.

Did BoJo steal ‘Build back better’ tagline from BIDEN? Fact checkers can relax, as BOTH repeat an old UN slogan from JAPAN

UK PM Boris Johnson promised to ‘build back better’ with a new education program, which prompted suggestions he swiped a tagline of US presidential candidate Joe Biden. But did both plagiarize it from somewhere else?

Speaking at the Exeter College in Devon on Tuesday, Johnson put forth something called a Lifetime Skills Guarantee, that should help Britons “train and retrain – at any stage in their lives” and enable the UK “not just to come through this crisis, but to come back stronger, and build back better.”

If that phrase sounded somewhat familiar to political journalists, it’s because Democrat candidate for president in the US, Joe Biden, used it as the title for his economic program unveiled in early July.

Turnabout might be fair play, considering that in 1988 Biden ran for president by plagiarizing a speech by British politician Neil Kinnock, which ended up torpedoing his candidacy at the time. However, there is no indication Johnson purloined the slogan from Biden.

Rather, both politicians (or their speechwriters) might have swiped it from something called the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, adopted in March 2015 at a UN conference in Japan.

The Japanese delegation proposed “Build Back Better” as a concept in chapter 7 of the book they presented at the Sendai conference. It was eventually incorporated into the framework and endorsed by the UN General Assembly.

In a nutshell, the idea is to restore the local infrastructure, culture and environment to what it was before the natural disaster that disrupted them, only making them more resilient.

Then-PM of Japan, Shinzo Abe, explained the concept as “common sense to the Japanese people, coming from our historical experiences in recovering from disaster and preparing for the future,” and something that has become “an important part of the culture of Japan.”

Both Biden and Johnson seem to have embraced the soundbite more than the concept, given that the economic and societal damage from the Covid-19 pandemic was not caused by the virus itself, but the political response to it in the form of lockdowns.
