A Boeing 737-800 jet crashed shortly after departing from Tehran’s Imam Khomeini International Airport on Wednesday, suspiciously timed as hostilities between the U.S. and Iran are heating up.
According to Iranian state media, the jet crashed by Parand, a suburban area southwest of the Iranian capital of Tehran. They are blaming technical problems, not foul play, for the crash.
The Ukraine International Airline Flight 752 had been scheduled to depart at 5:15am Tehran time to head to Boryspil International Airport in the Kyiv, Ukraine. The departure time had been delayed for nearly an hour, and only got into the sky at 6:12 am, but it did not stay up there for long.

While the timing may be odd, this comes following a string of deadly crashes reportedly caused by malfunctioning Boeing aircraft. The defense contractor has been revealed to use cheap labor to design their aircraft, resulting in serious design flaws that may have turned lethal.
Boeing is a great example of a corporation that has fallen from greatness due to the acceptance of globalism. Big League Politics reported on their self-inflicted woes last year:
“We have learned that Boeing relied on a single sensor that had been previously flagged in over 200 incident reports submitted to the FAA (U.S. Federal Aviation Administration),” said attorney Nomaan Husain, who is representing Nadege Dubois-Seex in a $276 million lawsuit after her husband was killed when one of Boeing’s planes crashed.
The shoddy work in the 737 MAX airliner may be due to the corporation’s outsourcing of crucial engineering work. It was recently revealed by Bloomberg News that Boeing paid their foreign engineers as little as $9-an-hour to develop software to develop the plane, from countries with little aerospace experience like India.
Indian software developer HCL Technologies Ltd. was tasked to design code for the plane, which former Boeing software engineer Mark Rabin says led to a sharp increase in errors for the purposes of penny-pinching.
“It was controversial because it was far less efficient than Boeing engineers just writing the code,” Rabin said. On many occasions Rubin noted that “it took many rounds going back and forth because the code was not done correctly.”
A summary posted by an HCL employee shows the types of problems that occurred when the 737 MAX airliner was being tested.
“Provided quick workaround to resolve production issue which resulted in not delaying flight test of 737-Max (delay in each flight test will cost very big amount for Boeing),” the HCL employee summarized.
Boeing refuses to take any culpability for its hiring practices, maintaining that there is nothing to worry about despite the mounting evidence to the contrary.
“Boeing has many decades of experience working with supplier/partners around the world,” a company spokesman said. “Our primary focus is on always ensuring that our products and services are safe, of the highest quality and comply with all applicable regulations.”
Embracing globalism is certainly paying off for Boeing, particularly their relationships cultivated in India. Boeing inked a $22 billion deal in January 2017 to supply SpiceJet Ltd with commercial aircraft including over 100 737-Max 8 jets.
Neocon interloper Nimrata “Nikki Haley” Randhawa has no qualms about profiting from this corporation that arguably has blood on its hands, joining the Boeing board to cash out following her ouster from the Trump administration.
Canadian Police Report Almost 2,200 Home Visits To Monitor Quarantine Compliance
Canadian police officers reportedly have conducted almost 2,200 home visits to ensure travelers into the country are complying with quarantine rules.
In late March, the Canadian government announced the start of the Quarantine Act, which mandates that anyone entering the country, with the exception of essential workers like truck drivers and those in healthcare, must self-isolate for 14 days.
Failure to comply can incur a fine of up to $750,000 and/or six months in prison. However, so far there have been no arrests, and only one fine of $1,000.
Still, many may find unsettling the degree to which the Canadian police, in coordination with official border and health services, are enforcing a nanny state by paying home visits to incoming travelers deemed at risk of non-compliance. In addition, prime minister Justin Trudeau has hinted that even tougher measures could be coming, even once Canada begins easing cross-border travel.
Also in late March, the Trudeau government announced a halt to all immigration in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus. However, current immigration applications would not be closed or denied due to failure to meet typical requirements.
Still, many pointed out that Canada’s response was actually stronger than the US’, which has continued to import thousands of H-1B workers even while under lockdown due to a global pandemic.
The border between the US and Canada has been closed since the end of March, and this was recently extended, likely into mid-June. Trudeau has stated that the closure and its extension were implemented with full cooperation from the US.
While travel into Canada has not stopped completely, it has fallen drastically since the implementation of restrictive policies. However, critics of the government question whether Trudeau reacted quickly enough, and argue that the policy going forward is too vague and requires more explanation and accountability.
As stated by Conservative MP Pierre Paul-Hus:
“It was the Trudeau government’s failure to close our borders that allowed the virus to spread in the first place. It is incumbent on the Trudeau government to explain how they plan to ensure that travelers who are coming back to Canada are not spreading COVID-19… Unfortunately, right now the Trudeau government is telling Canadians to ‘wait and see’ without explaining what metrics they are relying on to make decisions.”
While Canada is doing significantly better than the US in terms of the number of cases, one tragically sobering area in which it has exhibited clear failure is the fate of its elderly, particularly those in state and private long-term care institutions.
It is estimated that up to 86% of the Canadian death toll is from facilities such as long-term care, retirement, and corrections, with the first two making up the large majority. In one privately-run nursing home, as much as one third of residents have died from coronavirus.
While the situation is complex and there are few countries that do not seem to have significant problems with their approach, it is clear that something is wrong with Canada’s. Perhaps the government should focus more on taking care of its elderly than intrusively monitoring its citizens.
