A passenger reportedly shouted "Bomb!" before attempting to hijack the aircraft and divert it to Sochi, where the Winter Olympics are taking place
Terror threat: The Pegasus Airlines flight was forced to land in Istanbul
A flight from Ukraine was forced to make an emergency landing in Turkey this evening after a hijacking attempt, officials have confirmed.
The Boeing 737-800 carrying 110 passengers had departed from Kharkiv airport when a passenger reportedly yelled "Bomb!", according to CNN Turkey.
The man, a 45-year-old Ukrainian national, is then believed to have attempted to hijack the aircraft and divert it to Sochi, where the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics was underway at the time.
The crew on board the Pegasus Airlines flight reportedly sent an emergency signal to Sabiha Gökçen Airport in Istanbul warning officials the hijack attempt, before an F-16 Turkish military fighter jet was scrambled and forced the aircraft to land in Istanbul at 6.02pm local time.
After landing, the plane was towed away to a safe distance.
An official from the Turkish Transport Ministry said security forces then seized the highjacker, who had a small bag with electronic goods but no bomb.
A photograph displayed on Turkish TV channel NTV showed a man wearing a red, white and blue sports top, believed to be the suspect, standing up from his seat near the front of the plane as a steward looked on, while video footage also showed passengers sitting calmly on the aircraft before he was detained.
Istanbul Governor Huseyin Avni Mutlu said a a crisis centre was set up at the airport to handle the incident, and ambulances and fire engines were sent to the scene but there were no casualties.

The passenger is believed to have drunk alcohol and tried, unsuccessfully, to gain access to the cockpit, but the governor did not confirm these reports.
Ukraine's ministry of foreign affairs told Russian language wire service Interfax: "A scheduled flight from Kharkiv to Istanbul today completed an emergency landing at Istanbul airport due to an incident which took place on board.
"According to early information from the Turkish authorities a Ukrainian citizen was attempting to force the crew to direct the plane to Sochi."
A Russian whistleblower says he received chilling death threats after he accused public officials of siphoning money from Sochi construction projects.
Valery Morozov told ABC News he was a "marked man" ever since he went public with an insider's account of embezzlement. Morozov said that as a former construction executive he personally delivered "tens of millions of rubles" to public officials demanding a cut of the budget. Since then, he said death threats have trickled in, including one that read "you will be drowned in blood."
Morozov has since fled to Great Britain, but told ABC News that he had no regrets making the allegations.
President Barack Obama said in a new interview that he believes the coming Winter Olympics in Russia will be safe, but that Americans should still be careful if attending the games in Sochi.
"The Russian authorities understand the stakes here," Obama told CNN in the interview that aired Friday. "They understand that there are potential threats that are out there, and we are coordinating with them."
Obama and the rest of the First Family are not attending.
The United States will deploy at least two warships into the Black Sea off the coast of Sochi, Russia, to respond to a potential terror attack during the upcoming Olympics, top officials said on Monday.
The positioning of the ships would also enable the rapid evacuation of Americans in the event of an attack, CNN reported. The State Department would take the lead if evacuations became necessary.
The ships will have helicopters that could fly Americans out of the country if needed. There are also aircraft on standby in Germany that could be at Sochi in about two hours if needed
Considering that public opinion is susceptible to being hijacked by those who harbor nefarious intentions, we should remember that majority decisions cannot guarantee morality, liberty, or prosperity.
Ive seen some of these videos posted, and Im going to offer a scientific explanation. The ice cube has no voids. The ice cube is solid ice, so when you melt it, the water has to run off of it. It has nowhere to go but out/off. The snow has voids. Its is not solid. So when you melt it, the water is soaked up by those voids. This is how you are able make a snowball. Even when you compact it into a snowball, it still has voids. Snow is fluffy. You get about 10x the amount of snow as you would rain out of the exact same amount of moisture. So when you have a fist sized ball of snow, its actually far less water. Its about the size of a marble in reality. Im not saying that there arent chemtrails and all that stuff - just that that there may very well be an actual scientific explanation for this phenomenon. If you REALLY want to do this test in a scientific manner, you need to let the snow melt in a clean glass, then re-freeze it into an ice cube after its completely melted. This is called 'control' in a controlled experiment. It reduced variables and allows for accurate results as both specimens are in the same state.Also, the black is soot from the gas thats burning out of the lighter. It will also turn just about anything black when held on it - but that doesnt mean its burning. Its just soot from the gas. It is also very likely that it is immediately going to its gaseous state, which is vapor, because of the extreme heat being out to it. Just like if you threw a cup of water onto am extremely hot furnace; it would immediately vaporize. It works this was in reverse as well - have you seen the videos where people throw boiling water up in -40 degree temps? Its immediately freezes into crystals.
My talk with Karen Hudes, former attorney at The World Bank. Karen explains about the terrible corruption in the higher echelons of our financial, casino like system, that has trapped humanity in a continual cycle of debt, fear, and virtual slavery.
We discuss the possibility of humanity escaping our current, destructive, financial trajectory, which is based on a scaffolding of short term greed and debt, not freedom. Karen explains some amazing truths about gold, paper money, the Vatican, the Jesuits, the Kennedy and Lincoln assassinations, and how she is part of a team of whistle blowers globally, who are working diligently to bring about great change to transform the corrupt financial system and its controllers, once and for all. www.jasonliosatos.com
On the Friday, February 7 edition of the Alex Jones Show, Alex overcomes the Olympics distraction, and runs down the ever-evolving list of actions indicating the move towards an imperial office of the president. Jones reviews Sen. Rand Paul's call for Democrats to return campaign money generated by "sexual predator" Bill Clinton, and lays out the "socialist nightmare" as it occurs in real time. On today's show, Alex talks with former federal prosecutor and a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives for Georgia's 7th congressional district, Bob Barr. Mr. Barr is also a candidate for the Republican nomination for the 11th District in Georgia, and filed the first official inquiry of impeachment against former President Bill Clinton. He will speak with Alex about the increasing volume of attacks against the conservative ideology. We'll also cover other breaking news, and take your calls on this live broadcast.
The financial crash of 2008, the same crash which has been ongoing
for years, is NOT an accident. It is a concerted and engineered crisis
meant to position the U.S. for currency disintegration and the
institution of a global basket currency controlled by an unaccountable
supranational governing body like the International Monetary Fund
(IMF). The American populace is being conditioned through economic
fear to accept the institutionalization of global financial control
and the loss of sovereignty.
People need to realize first that the Fed does NOT care about the
continued health of our economy, and they may not care about
presenting a facade of health for much longer either.We need to come to grips with the reality that overt money
printing is not the only method at the disposal of globalists when
destroying the greenback. A debt default is just as likely to cause loss
of world reserve status and devaluation - no printing press
required. Blame goes to government and political gridlock while the
banks slither away in the midst of the chaos.
You think everything is great and the US Dollar will remain King? You need to ask yourself a couple of questions:
Is it just "coincidence" the taper was started right when the Baltic
Dry Index, a global indicator of shipping demand, has lost over 50% of
its value in the past few weeks?
Is it just "coincidence" that the taper is running tandem with dismal
retail sales growth reports from across the globe coming in from the
final quarter of 2013?
And, is it just a "coincidence" that the Fed taper is a accelerating
right as the next debt ceiling debate begins in March, and when reports
are being released by the Congressional Budget Office that over 2
million jobs may be lost due to Obamacare?
No. Most if not all of
these negative indicators needed months to generate, so they could not
have been caused by the taper itself. The only explanation beyond
"coincidence" is that the Federal Reserve WANTED to launch the taper
program and protect itself before these signals began to reach the
One final word: BOHICA !!!
We understand that Doomsday predictions are aplenty these days, but given what's going on around the world right now it may be time to revisit the eerily prescient forecast of an elite insider.
Grady Means is a former advisor to Vice President Nelson Rockefeller, a former economist at the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare, and has managed multi-billion dollar firms over his career. Back in October of 2012 Means penned a commentary and analysis for the Washington Times in which he noted that "America's fall will take global economies with it."
But he didn't stop there. Means gave us a target date. There is a very large probability that the real end of the world will occur around March 4, 2014. The doomsday clock will ring then because the U.S. economy may fully crash around that date, which will, in turn, bring down all world economies and all hope of any recovery for the foreseeable future — certainly over the course of most of our lifetimes. Interest rates will skyrocket, businesses will fail, unemployment will go to record levels, material and food shortages will be rampant, and there could be major social unrest. Any wishful thinking that America is in a "recovery" and that "things are getting better" is an illusion. The central issue is confidence in America, and the world is losing confidence quickly. At a certain point, soon, the United States will reach a level of deficit spending and debt at which the countries of the world will lose faith in America and begin to withdraw their investments. Many leading economists and bankers think another trillion dollars or so may do it. A run on the bank will start suddenly, build quickly and snowball. At that point, we will need to finance our own deficit, and we will not be able to do so. We will raise bond rates to re-attract foreign investment, interest rates will go up, and businesses will fail. Unemployment will skyrocket.
The rest of the world will fully crash along with us.
But that's not all. Even the largest retailer in the world is having problems and seeing negative growth. Walmart announced that last November's cuts to food stamp recipients hurt their fourth quarter sales, adding further credence to the notion that without direct government bailouts the stability of America's companies comes into question.
Those investing in financial markets have certainly taken note. On top of the 326 point decline in the Dow Jones today, the market is down a combined 1,000 points from its peak just a month ago. And, with three well known bankers committing suicide in the last week, people are starting to pay attention.
We could well be facing the beginnings of an all-out financial Armageddon that will make 2008 look like a brief warm up.
This collapse, as noted by the US Treasury Department and Grady Means, is going to have generational effects -- a depressive economic environment for our entire lifetimes.
Preparing for such a scenario is not easy. One must take into consideration everything from emergency supply lists to deal with the instantaneous collapse of our monetary system and financial markets, while also considering long-term strategies that involve the development of barterable trade skills and relocating to land that has productive capacity so you can grow your own food.
We had a reader recently comment about the coming collapse. She warned that preparing for a weeks- or months-long emergency is insufficient. She suggested that perhaps we need to consider the worst case scenario: years of joblessness, destitution and depression.

Ukraine has Black sea ports, they can control pipelines to their benefit, and they are Russia, and China's Bread basket. I'm Confident If Ukraine where to establish a sovereign non totalitarian neutral government, they would be able to export to Russia/China un-hindered. Ukraine could then use this to acquire or develop technology to sustain or enhance them. China and Russia actively buy food/grain from Ukraine, use this profit to buy tech from other countries, without corruption and open pipeline taps, Ukraine could at-least give it a shot. It would be the EU's loss if they wouldn't trade with the Ukraine, unless Ukraine signed a agreement that bind's EU to Ukraine. Regardless I hope Putin and EU technocrats submit to the will of a Independent Ukraine and are willing to trade with it freely, otherwise they are just foreign bullies/usurpers.
You can't really take out the US power lines because they are like a computer, built to handle power outages. This is US propaganda , it is impossible to shut down the entire grid there are so many redundanciies in the system and the way how the power grid is designed every power station is connected to the national grid if you shut down a couple plants all that will happen is the computers will re route power and take from other plants hat are on line. an attack of tha scale would be incredible no one has the technical abiity, money or know how to carry out such an attack.
I suggest a working cash allocation of 1/3 in local bank, 1/3 in local credit union, 1/3 in mattress. If one goes down the other will probably keep you solvent until the crisis passes. This applies to normal bill paying money, not long term wealth preservation or doomsday prep, etc....
In a financial collapse the one entity that will remain (like cockroaches) is government and the one debt that will not be forgiven is taxes (the last debt to be forgiven) so if you want to stay in your home and out of IRS fEMA prison, and you think your assets will be fozen or Corzined, then hell yes prepay them. If you plan on going rogue, then prepay for nothing but ammo.
G. Edward Griffin is an American film producer, author, and political lecturer. He is perhaps best known as the author of The Creature from Jekyll Island, a critique of much modern economic theory and practice, specifically the Federal Reserve System. Starting as a child actor, he became a radio station manager before age 20. He then began a career of producing documentaries and books on often-debated topics like cancer, Noah's ark, and the Federal Reserve System, as well as on libertarian views of the Supreme Court of the United States, terrorism, subversion, and foreign policy. Since the 1970s, Griffin

“If you are an ordinary person, then you can prepare yourself for war by moving to the countryside and building a farm, but you must take guns with you, as the hordes of starving will be roaming. Also, even though the elite will have their safe havens and specialist shelters, they must be just as careful during the war as the ordinary civilians, because their shelters can still be compromised.”

The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or so dependent on its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system will bear its burdens without complaint and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.

"Debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages must be foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile and more easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government, applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers.
This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world.
By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished."
