On Tuesday, there was major news concerning the timing of Vice President Mike Pence remaining in Washington, DC as President Donald Trump did not appear for any public press meetings and Russian President Vladimir Putin canceled meetings in the wake of a fire aboard one of his submersibles that left 14 of the Russian Navy dead.  Though the White House hasn’t commented on Pence’s canceling of his political event in New Hampshire, there is a lot of hush hush about what actually was going on but we are told it was not an “emergency.”  The timing of what went on in Russia and what went on in the US has led to widespread speculation that the Russian submarine fire is the key to the mystery.  From theories that it was sent to cut undersea cables that provide internet to the world to it being involved in an underwater battle with a US submarine, there seems to be no end in sight as to the speculation.

First, one report claims that the submarine was sent to “kill the internet.”

A possible reason for Russia’s caginess? Multiple sources are now claiming the sub was an AS-12 “Losharik,” a nuclear-powered submarine some speculate was designed to cut the undersea cables that deliver internet to the world.

Russian media outlets RBC and Novaya Gazeta have both cited anonymous sources who claim the submarine was a Losharik, and while the sub has been in operation since 2003, Russia has never come out and declared its official purpose.

That hasn’t stopped the U.S. and other Western officials from conjecturing about it, though.

For years, they’ve warned that Russia has been surveying undersea cables, and experts have called out the Losharik by name as possibly playing a role in future missions to disrupt those cables.

Another claims that there are inside sources that have said the Russian sub survived an attack and returned fire against an American sub, which was torpedoed and sank off the coast of Alaska.  This hasn’t been confirmed either.

That report comes by way of Michael Roach of Before It’s News.  He writes:

UPDATE BELOW: 7.2.2019 4:21 PM – New Report: It appears both sides are downplaying this incident with no mention of an American sub sunk. I’m trying to verify these reports but they may keep it under wraps.

UPDATE II: 4:42 PM 7.2.2019 – EU Council, Russian and American Leaders Reportedly Pulled into Urgent Meetings, more below.

Urgent Consultations In Washington, Moscow On Reported US-Russian Submarines In Firefight

First reports reaching DEBKAfile’s military sources say that a US submarine intercepted a Russian nuclear sub in American waters opposite Alaska. The Russian sub escorting the nuclear submarine responded with a Balkan 2000 torpedo and scuttled the US vessel. Urgent consultations in both the White House and the Kremlin were taking place on Tuesday night. US Vice President Mike Pence called off an appearance in  New Hampshire after being recalled to Washington for a conference called by President Donald Trump without explanation.

Now from Hal Turners Website this report just came in.

An American submarine operating off the coast of Alaska was REPORTEDLY torpedoed and SUNK during a firefight with a Russian submarine, after the American sub allegedly intercepted the Russian sub in American waters.

The Russian submarine allegedly sustained heavy damage in the fight, with upwards of 14 crew killed, but it made it back to its base in Russia.

I have calls into the Pentagon and to my Intel Sources seeking to confirm (or deny) this information.

No word on US casualties.

Emergency meetings have been taking place at the White House this afternoon, with Vice President Pence being called back to the White House and having to cancel his scheduled trip to New Hampshire.

As Pence was being called back, word broke in Russian media that Russian President Vladimir Putin cancelled a public event he had long scheduled, and diverted immediately for a meeting with his Defense Minister.

At that meeting, both Putin and the Defense Minister SUMMONED the General Secretary of the Russian Armed Forces to the meeting.

While that was taking place, the European Union headquarters in Brussels Belgium called an Emergency meeting of the EU National Security Council and, separately, the British Government called a COBRA meeting for its government.

Stay tuned as this event unfolds.

This is a developing story.  Check back for updates.

UPDATE 5:45 PM EDT –

Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered the country’s defense chief to travel to a northern naval base to conduct a probe after a fire on a deep-sea research submersible killed 14 crew members. 

(Hal Turner Remark:   A fire huh?  Hmmmmm.  Caused by what?  A firefight with a US Submarine, perhaps?)

Putin on July 2 called the incident a “terrific loss” and told Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu to “personally hear reports” and direct the Investigative Committee to “definitely establish the causes behind this tragedy.”

Putin’s meeting with Shoigu came after the Defense Ministry said earlier in the day that 14 sailors were killed when a fire broke out on July 1 aboard a submersible carrying out research work in Russian territorial waters.

(Hal Turner Remark:   “In Russian territorial waters???”  Why the need to say THAT?  Something’s fishy already with the public statements from Russia. And US/EU/UK governments do not have “emergency meetings” over a “fire” inside a Russian submarine.   Nope.  I don’t buy this one bit.  This sounds like a cover story to me.  Still digging via my intel contacts.)

RECAP –

Here is how events unfolded earlier today, leading up to this story:  Click HERE   (More updates to follow, below)

UPDATE 7:00 PM EDT –

Despite my inquiries to the Pentagon, Lt. Col. Carla Gleason has failed to respond for several hours.  No confirmation.  No Denial.

PLEASE NOTE: This will be a story on the Hal Turner Radio Show, LIVE from New York City on Wednesday,  July 3, 2019 beginning at 9:00 PM eastern US time (New York City Time) [GMT-0400].   

UPDATE 7:36 PM EDT –

I will give this Intel to you exactly how I just got it.  Make of it what you will:

“An unnatural mobilization at US and Western military bases in the Persian Gulf and in the Gulf states”

UPDATE 7:45 PM EDT –

Gold Bullion spiked up by $40 per ounce in the final hours of trading today.  The money people are running to Gold for safety.

UPDATE 1:55 AM EDT (WEDNESDAY)–

It is worth noting that a few U.S. wars have started because of a sunken ship.

1. The sinking of the Battleship Maine in Cuba for the Spanish-American war.

2. Sinking of the Lusitania by a German U-Boat and we go into World War I.

3. The sinking of a whole bunch of ships at a Naval Base named Pearl Harbor and World War II starts.

4. A naval battle in the South China Sea Gulf of Tonkin starts the Viet-Nam war.

5. I guess we could also include the American Revolution due to the Boston Tea Party where Colonial Masons robbed and burned British Ships -AND-

The Civil War starts with an attack on Fort Sumter which is located in Charleston Harbor was essentially a naval battle
-AND-

I guess the War of 1812 deserves an honorable mention because the Star Spangled Banner was written during a naval bombardment of Fort McHenry.

While Russian Television (RT) has put out a story claiming the research submarine suffered a fire causing the deaths of 14 crew, the article (HERE) again claims the sub was “in Russian Territorial waters.”

Strangely, FOX NEWS has also published a weird story on what the United States specific actions would be in case of a Russian NUCLEAR ATTACK upon America (HERE).   The timing of this particular story is . . . interesting . . . to say the least.

UPDATE 12:00 NOON WEDNESDAY –

Kremlin says details of a fire that killed 14 crew on a deep-water submersible willnot be made public because they include classified information

                                                                      ————————-

UPDATE I: New Report: It appears both sides are downplaying this incident with no mention of an American sub sunk. I’m trying to verify these reports but they may keep it under wraps.

UPDATE II: EU Council, Russian and American Leaders Reportedly Pulled into Urgent Meetings

This information was just posted over at Conservative Daily News.

Global leaders are reportedly engaged in urgently-called security/defense meetings, but no official explanation has been offered.

Something’s Up

First, President Donald Trump’s schedule for today was completely devoid of public events – a rare occurrence on a workday.

Second, Air Force 2, carrying Vice President Mike Pence, was initially reported to have been turned around mid-air on Tuesday so that he could return to Washington, D.C.

Just told it is not an “emergency” (1st word used) that the @VP is sent back to DC. Now being told it is a “diversion.“. No explanation yet of what that means.

— Alison King NBC10 Boston (@AlisonNBCBoston) July 2, 2019

Later, Pence’s press secretary said that he had never actually left D.C.

The @VP never left Washington, DC. There was no “emergency callback.” Something came up that required the VP to stay in DC. We’ll reschedule NH shortly. https://t.co/h270JCEUIG

— Alyssa Farah (@VPPressSec) July 2, 2019

The vice president was scheduled to appear at a political event in New Hampshire and his chief of staff, Marc Short, told a reporter that the public will find out what happened “in a few weeks.”

Third, Russian President Vladimir Putin cleared his public schedule today so that he could attend an urgent meeting with his Defense Minister. The TASS news agency has confirmed this report with the Kremlin.

#BREAKING: Putin cancelling his plans for today. The Kremlin says he will be meeting with his defence minister very urgently

— Amichai Stein (@AmichaiStein1) July 2, 2019

Then, an unconfirmed report from an Israeli Broadcasting Corporation reporter said that the European Union’s Security Council (he probably meant the Council of the European Union Security Committee) has been called for a previously unscheduled meeting, but that tweet was later deleted without explanation.

https://twitter.com/AmichaiStein1/status/1146091169807503360

About that same time, the European Council held a press conference to announce the outcome of a special meeting they have been holding for two days to select commission positions.

It is unclear if this is the special meeting to which the Israeli reporter referred.

Updates:

The reports of the sudden gathering of global leaders comes as Iran declared that it had violated the terms of the nuclear deal still in-force between it, Europe (P5+1 countries minus the U.S.) and Russia.

1:58 PM: EU Foreign Ministers drop press release on Iran violations:

In a joint statement France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the European External Action Service said:

The Foreign Ministers of France, Germany, the UK, and the High Representative are extremely concerned at Iran’s announcement that it has exceeded the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action stockpile limit for low enriched uranium. The International Atomic Energy Agency has confirmed this information.

We have been consistent and clear that our commitment to the nuclear deal depends on full compliance by Iran. We regret this decision by Iran, which calls into question an essential instrument of nuclear non-proliferation.

We urge Iran to reverse this step and to refrain from further measures that undermine the nuclear deal. We are urgently considering next steps under the terms of the JCPoA in close coordination with other JCPoA participants.

I would have thought by now that stories would have leaked to family members of those aboard a submarine that was sunk, but I could be wrong about that.

As for the claim concerning cutting internet cables, wouldn’t that affect Russia as much as it would affect the US?  Neither of these scenarios make much sense to me, but again, I could be wrong here.

One thing we have been told is that whatever was going on in DC, the American people won’t know about it for at least a couple of weeks.

However, former CIA agent Kevin Shipp believes something is about to break.
