Heavy.com: Andreas Lubitz: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know
Andreas Lubitz was the co-pilot of Germanwings flight 9525 who reportedly intentionally crashed the plane into the French Alps and killed all 150 people on board.
Here’s what you need to know:
1. He Was German
Lubitz, 28, was German national from Montabaur, Germany.
2. He joined Germanwings in September 2013.
3. He had 630-hours logged as a co-pilot.
4. He allegedly locked the pilot out of the cockpit when the pilot went to use the restroom.
5. He can be heard calmly breathing on the blackbox as flight 9525 descended and crashed into the French Alps.
Re:“Lufthansa, the German pilots’ union and the Lufthansa flight training school in Bremen where the pilots trained”
which may be relevant considering:

"and would not give details on his religion or ethnic background. "
This seems suspicious. Why they would create such suspicions is weird, unless there was something about his religion and ethnic background that would not be PC to disclose?
Beyond that, if it wasn't terrorism the other possibilities might be:
Secretly depressed and suicidal (or some other mental illness)
Or had a medical condition that cause him to lose consciousness, which might explain the regular breathing?
Do co-pilots normally keep the door locked while the other is in the restroom? It would make sense that you might not want that specific window of time open as an opportunity for a terrorist to gain access to the cockpit and other pilot while you were taking a tinkle.
Cav: Great insight, as usual, starting with "no details on his religion or ethnic background". I agree but it not only looks "suspicious", I suggest it belies a hidden agenda on-board between European leaders, as it were. Along with Obama's fix on Islam. Meaning never responsible for any act of terror, no matter what the circumstances. Replete with current Obama catchphrases, "actions by some folks" or "man made disasters."
@Cavallo I thought about the unconscious thing until I read this in the article, The A320 is designed with safeguards to allow emergency entry if a pilot inside is unresponsive, but the override code known to the crew does not go into effect – and indeed goes into a lockdown – if the person inside the cockpit specifically denies entry. It seems that he was responsive and denied access to the pilot outside when he tried the emergency entry override code.
I think it's very possible, as you said, that it was a mental health issue or perhaps it was a terrorist attack, I guess we may never know unless they decide to give us more information.
Has anyone thought about he was have money problems and was in serous debt. It is just a thought.
MichaelKing, Then why take 149 innocent people down with you?
I just spoke to a friend of mine who is a flight attendant for German wings and told me in no uncertain terms lubitz was gay and was very depressed because he was spurned by his lover who cheated on him.
Gonzo it called Insurance if he thought no one could find out that the crash was not nothing but a accident then insurance would pay off the debt. When you are in that state of mind you just do not care how it would effect others on the plane with him.
Reportedly had a break in his training in 2008..for "depression"..FWIW
Yesterday they said they found the 2nd black box but the sim card was not IN it..Now, today they say this: "Robin said the second black box still had not been found but remains of victims and DNA identification have begun, he said." Have not released his ethnicity or religion history yet. Today POPO sed today they found significant evidence at his home and carted it away..did not specify what.

The msm remains fixed on a lone wolf perpetrating this bloody act, yet there are reports suggesting the possiblity of multiple parties involved in a set up.
DNAinfo New York Video: Hatchet-Wielding Man Attacks Police Before Being Gunned Down
This link provides the following details leading to that supposition:“The chaotic scene unfolded about 2 p.m. when a freelance photographer approached four officers assigned to foot patrol with the 103rd Precinct and asked to take their picture on Jamaica Avenue near 162nd Street, NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said during a Thursday evening press conference.
As the officers posed for the shot on the rainy street,
No further information is provided anywhere online about this “freelance photographer” who is also a critical witness with potentially useful images taken during the attack.
Another blog called the Gothamist reveals:
“A hatchet-wielding man was shot dead and four NYPD officers, plus a bystander, are injured after police responded to an assault in Jamaica Queens. “
Is there a corroborating report of this call about an assault? If not, is this could be indicative of a set up where the – as yet, unidentified ‘freelance photographer’ COINCIDENTALLY distracted these four ‘rookie’ LEOs.PRECISELY at the moment this ax wielding jihadist attacked these unsuspecting officers posing for that photograph?
Where/who is this freelance photographer?!

Duncan gambled and lost by withholding critical details of his exposure to the hosptial staff.
Had ANY hospital been aware of his exposure to ebola – upon arrival at the triage desk, his destiny could be different. DUNCAN assumed ALL liability involved in his care by withholding this information.
As a result, any and all compensation attained legally by charlatan ambulance chasers should become forfeit- able assets to re-compensate the hospitals, medical staff and all the professional and caring individuals who end up facing their own mortality because of exposure to ebola as a direct result of Duncan’s lies and lies of omission.
Any efforts to hold others liable for Duncan’s lies are reprehensible.
My friend is in quarantine 14 days starting yesterday. She works in a lab and draws blood in Dallas. She was not exposed to the blood sample she took.
The man's wife called later in the day AFTER they took the blood to report a tiny detail...that he had forgotten to tell them he has active malaria.
So, using the same equivalence: does the guy with malaria have a case because he did not tell anyone and expected everyone to magically treat him special like Duncan's nephew expected?
I say the lab and the people in quarantine have a case against the idjut who was supposed to notify all staff.
The lady in Red will soon be on the scene ...
if he sheds tears on cue, no problem.....
All Duncan did was to follow what Obama does everyday.... If you can lie and get by why not do it just like the "Command and Cheif"

As a parent I am relieved the child showed no interest in directly handling – what appear to be – magnetic beads. To witness any ‘scientific experiment’ with toddlers utilizing materials which present a clear choking hazard is bad enough. Should any magnetic bead find it’s way into a curious toddlers intestinal tract it could result in a seriously frightening medical emergency. Yes, there are multiple adults supervising this experiment. Any parent can tell you it doesn’t take much distraction for disaster to strike with curious and tempted toddlers.
Yes, I'm sure this is what the child was concerned with.
Your comment cracked me up!! So. The baby is sitting on moms lap with moms hands inches away from the baby. The baby is sitting across from a trained child specialist, and another specialist standing and watching a couple of feet away. There is also an adult video taping the event. So, there are four sets of adult eyes on this child. You are "relieved the child showed no interest in directly handling - what appear to be - magnetic beads." What do you think would have happened?! Hahahaha! Too much!
LMAO@Keliga!!! Best comment all night.
Magnetic beads? They looked like they were on a necklace...

A cargo ship couldn’t unload Israeli goods in Oakland yesterday and was relocating to Los Angeles….wonder if similar circumstances are at play here.

Quit legitimizing Islam as a religion. Islam is a political cult with shariah as it’s legal system – all of Islam is antithetical to liberty and Western societies.
Muslim is the religion Islam is the political side of it. No they do not mean the same thing.

Seniors, with lots of spare time and disposable income were drawn to Atlantic City over its two decades of prosperity. That demographic is dying off, as are the casinos they supported. With 5 years of Obama-nomics and Obamacare, this is going to snowball.
Showboat paid 15 million dollars in property taxes! That is but one casino of how many? The last and only time I was in Atlantic City, the boardwalk was festering with indigents, minstrels begging for handouts, elderly men who obviously lost their shirts wandering aimlessly between casinos checking for loose tokens. It was one of the saddest vacay spots I’ve witnessed. Off the boardwalk and between opulent casinos was a human cesspool and urban decay. What the hell was all that tax money spent on?
Maybe that tax money paid the legal fee's of the former AC mayor's who are now in the slammer.

The ever expanding entitlement community nursed by this administration grows impatient with “greedy”rich capitalist establishments. Having gifted a company product without permission on five separate occasions – this generous senior was setting a precedent for “needy” folks to line up expecting more free stuff from this establishment. No business can withstand such unwarranted generosity by an employee.

HotAir.com posted A thread titled, “Was Heritage questioner a former candidate for Congress?”
Turns out this demure little Muslima was more than meets the eye in this video, having failed to reach political aspirations as a democrat and experiencing similar rejection on the Republican/(ahem) Conservative side.
Islam has many faces, with deception prized . When people begin to study, and reflect on Islamic doctrine as understood by its devout adherents, one will be forced to realize that “peace”, “justice”, “innosense”, “honor”, all have very different meanings to those which we understand. When in”dialogue” with Muslims, understand that their very soothing message must be filtered through the shariah lens to get to the truth.
Another point to consider is this woman’s garb. if one overlooks the meaning of her choices one will never see the forest for the trees. It’s the same with the way current events are repeatedly washed through the PC lens. no mention of negative connotations of Islam are permitted, hence the lack of understanding of the enemy this nation faces.
Could it be that daddy Bergdahl was instructing his son to speak only in his adopted foreign tongue to avoid revealing too much .? Instructing his son to trust his reintegration team would also suggest that these team members are also fluent in that tongue in order to communicate with Bowe and the administration. I would even venture to guess that the entire bunch are in cahoots to keep the evolving narrative intact as long as possible. This appears to be quite a challenging task given the walk back this afternoon :
Could it be that your reading WAY too much into things? There's plenty, and I mean PLENTY of bizarre, and nonsensical things that are real about this story with letting your imagination run wild and making things up to fit your bizarre narrative. Maybe he's telling his son to trust the team because he believes his son has a severe case of Stockholm syndrome. It would certainly make sense, a father reaching out to try to help his son. Stick to the facts, they are crazy enough to satisfy even the strangest conspiracy theory people.

It appears to me the reason daddy Burgdahl would suggest his son couldn’t speak English anymore was to keep his son from revealing too much and to speak only in the tongue very few can genuinely translate and communicate with him. Daddy Burgdahl also specifically instructed his son to trust his handlers who obviously must be able to communicate with him.

This isn’t just Obama’s nightmare;. . .take note that HIllary was SoS when the terms for the release of the GITMO-5 began negotiations four years ago.
Jerrry Gordon Via NewEnglishReview:
On CBS Face the Nation, David Ignatius of The Washington Post revealed what apparently was common knowledge in informed circles that such a swap had been under consideration four years ago. However, it was objected to by then Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullins. Further, both GOP and even several prominent Democrat Senators had objected to such a release. Ignatius underlined the controversy the prisoner swap created with these comments;
I think this is going to be politically controversial because the people who are being released, the five people being released from Guantanamo are very dangerous Taliban cadre. These are people in one case, the deputy military commander, in another case, the deputy chief of intelligence.
In two cases, the (UNINTEL), they’re people who worked directly to facilitate Al Qaeda during A

Appearances can be deceiving on multiple levels in this case. If a two to five year old can manipulate-his/her parents to this extreme and receive media and social accolades for his/her achievements…just imagine the manipulative skills (s)he will acquire in these formative years these parents will have to brave (/s) in the near future. Just imagine the impact these manipulation skills will have on the younger sibling. these parents think they worried about this child’s self esteem and emotional balance before puberty….just wait for what is in store for this child’s teen years. Would anyone be surprised to see this become a reality show?

The oil pipelines in Alaska attract wildlife because of the temperature around the pipeline iswarmer than the surrounding tundra. Imagine the road kill problem solar roads will present during those frosty days/nights.

Tell me again, how green are those spent batteries that help fuel how many miles of roadway?

I have trouble getting too excited about this given the history of hackers breaking into anything electronic. As for heating surfaces upon which people/vehicles travel during snow/ice events – where do they expect the melted ice/water to drain to?
That was very funny. In the US, they'd have a lawsuit on their hands by some damn union.
I don't like Snickers, but that was funny.
Funny or not it appears the Blaze just duped us into watching a paid ad. ...not funny!
There are exactly zero (0) toothbrushes capable of removing Snickers from your teeth.

Yeah Totally dude. Who said Glenn Beck doesn't speak our language. It's really gnarly dude that you used the word totally in the headline. It's like no worries understanding this now. This website is da bomb.
So no more "nuts" in Snickers now???
I love them, in an appropriate way. :)
