Dave Hodges: Attack On Arizona’s Internet Was the Beta Test for the Implementation of Martial Law

Attack On Arizona’s Internet Was the Beta Test for the Implementation of Martial Law

At approximately noon on February 25, 2015, the Internet went down in a wide swath ranging from just north of Phoenix stretching to Flagstaff, Arizona. Internet service was restored the following day around 1pm local time.
The very first reports I received about the outage, coming out of Wickenburg and Prescott, was that the ISP from Century Link went down because a car crashed into a transformer. Shortly after that, reports stated that a construction crew hit a power line causing Internet service to go down. From the Phoenix media, we now know that this was the work of “vandals” who discovered where cables, buried several feet underground,were located in the midst of rough terrain. These “vandals” subsequently cut through the Internet cables which were inches to a foot thick and this was the cause this massive outage.
The event had a crippling effect on local communities from central to northern Arizona.
-911 service and the communications of first responders were taken down.
-Point of sale debit/credit card transactions could not be initiated due to the outage.
-ATM’s did not work.
-Banks were not able to access their computers and were forced to issue paper receipts for any deposit.
-All cell phone providers were inoperable except for Verizon Wireless.
-Most cable companies were not able to carry programming (e.g. Phoenix TV stations) due to the takedown of live streaming. The same was also true for many radio stations.
In short, businesses, schools and personal lives were totally disrupted. Yet, the national coverage afforded to this major event was negligible as I discovered after calling friends and colleagues from across the country to gauge their reaction. As of yesterday afternoon, most people had not heard about this event. I am not surprised as similar events transpired in both Florida and Oklahoma, AT THE SAME TIME!
What happened over three state region was not the actions of “vandals”. This was a highly coordinate and sophisticated attack upon certain aspects of our grid designed to take down communications and commerce. I suspect that Russian Spetsnaz were the boots on the ground for this beta test in preparation for martial law. The only question which truly remains is how far away are we from complete implementation of this operation? FULL REPORT

There are several inaccuracies in this report. I live in central Arizona and know the score. 1st - service was restored by 5:30 pm the same day it went out. 2nd - I have a straight talk phone and I'm the only one I know locally whose service was intact. Verizon customers were not receiving calls and their outgoing calls were not deliverable. 3d - It was a fiber optic line that was severed - not a cable. A friend who used to work in fiber optics concluded that it probably was intentional but the particulars of who and why have not been released.
