“the two original owners of that company actually decided to go to Ukraine and do a video over the Chernobyl nuclear reactor”
“this is before I got involved in the company”
“they got in a dispute with the Swedish manufacturer and the helicopter failed”
“when I joined that company they had no working helicopter, I had to go to Sweden and re-establish the relationship with the manufacturer to get that helicopter repaired and back in the sky”
“then I got them to change the name of their company to Aerocine”
“the rest is history that’s being distorted by some people who would perpetrate falsehoods on the Internet in an effort to damage Crowdsource the Truth”
Although he does not name us specifically, it is clear that Jason is insinuating that the information presented in Insane in the Ukraine is false. We are not trying to perpetrate falsehoods, as he alleges. We are trying to present true information, supported with citations. So let’s take a look at the evidence we have and compare it to the claims Jason Goodman just made.
Goodman claims that he was not the CEO of Aerocine when the drone flew over Chernobyl at the time of the Ukrainian revolution – February 2014. He certainly had no problems talking about being the CEO a couple of weeks later at London’s 3D Creative Summit on March 12-13, 2014. Did he really only join the company (formed by his NYU Film School chums) between February 21 and March 12, just in time for a speaking gig at the conference?
Video of Jason Goodman presenting as CEO of Aerocine in London, March 12-13 2014:
He says “it became clear to me that this micro-aerial platform had a tremendous future and so we formed Aerocine“. Doesn’t that make it sound like he was a co-founder of the company, and not just someone hired to join them later on?
“I am aware that a video we posted several weeks ago has gone viral” (presumably meaning the Chernobyl video)
“We’ve been working on this for a long time, selecting the best platform, the best motors, we’ve done everything to modify the rotor configuration and just tweak this thing out to the utmost extent” – doesn’t that imply he’s been working on this drone project for longer than 2 weeks? Wouldn’t they have done all that tweaking and adjusting BEFORE their flagship Chernobyl flight debut?
8:00 “we’ve been working with ARRI CSC. At the end of February we flew an Alexa XT and this is some footage of that”
“We” implies the speaker considers himself part of the group. Goodman is visible in the video clip he plays and appears to be directing the events.
Further video of this flight at ARRI in New York:
Here is Aerocine’s demo reel, shot in Chernobyl in February 2014. Did they use a different camera?
That Aerocine was in Ukraine in Feb 2014 is also confirmed from co-founder Jeff Brink’s instagram:
Aerocine, LLC was incorporated December 12, 2013.
Jason Goodman filed the trademark for Aerocine in his own name, citing first use anywhere March 13, 2014. This is weird, since it seems like it was being used in February to film the Aerocine demo reel. Aerocine’s own web site says they made their public debut March 12, 2014, but talks about its record-breaking drone flight on February 21, 2014.
It seems there may be some copyright issues specific to the use of the drone in February. If this was not a commercial gig for Aerocine, then who paid for the mission? What was the real purpose of the mission? Who owns all the footage now?
Goodman’s claims that the Chernobyl flight was “before I got involved with the company” are at odds with the video he shows in his own presentation of him directing the world’s first micro-aerial flight of an ARRI Alexa XT in February 2014. The video of this also proves his claim that “they had no working helicopter when I got involved” to be false. His claim that “I got them to change the name of the company after I got involved” is at odds with the company registration information and his own trademark filings.
If we are “perpetrating falsehoods”, we sure have a lot of evidence to accompany our perpetration. Evidence that comes from Goodman and his company themselves, and disproves his own claims. The onus is now on Mr Goodman to provide any evidence whatsoever that any of our claims are false.
His company 21st Century 3D’s “news” section hasn’t been updated since 2012. Being a CEO of an award-winning drone company is somehow not newsworthy, or relevant to the resumé of a film-maker?
Why have we never once seen a drone shot, in hundreds if not thousands of episodes of Crowdsource the Truth? Why didn’t this expertise come up when Jason was covering the Las Vegas massacre? Why did he trespass to see what the view was like from on top of a nearby gas station when he could have got a better shot perfectly legally with a drone? He explored the theory of guns being attached to helicopters, so why didn’t he ever touch the idea of guns being on drones? He was the CEO of a company that pioneered heavy lift drones and was one of the first companies in the US to get one of the FAA 333 flight exemptions for drones.
On February 21, 2014 Aerocine flew their drone through the Chernobyl site in Pripyat, Ukraine – less than 100 miles from the capital city Kiev.
Image: Google Maps
When I say “through” I mean that quite literally, as the video has many shots of the drone inside buildings and structures. The city of Pripyat is a ghost town, abandoned since the nuclear disaster in 1986. The whole area is in a military Exclusion Zone that is now administered by Ukraine’s Ministry of Emergency Services.
When you land in a new country with a brand new drone, to attempt something never done before in cinematography, do you:
a) get off the plane and go immediately to the remote film site from the airport and start filming
b) rest for a few days, show up at the remote site on the day of filming and hope everything works fine first time
c) get off the plane and go to a hotel. Sleep, test the drone around a major city where you can get parts and repairs, and then travel to the remote film site confident it works
It would be c) don’t you think?
So it would be reasonable to assume that the Aerocine team was in Ukraine with their drone a few days earlier than the filming date February 21, 2014 (UPDATE: the drone pilot has confirmed their team was in Ukraine when the massacre broke out, but the Feb 21 flight may have been in New Jersey. see Part 3 for more details).
On February 18 , 2014 the Ukrainian “Color Revolution” turned hot in Kiev. The biggest day of massacre was February 20, 2014.
Isn’t that an interesting coincidence? Jason Goodman is the CEO of a company which is operating the world’s most advanced commercial HD video drone in Ukraine at the exact time a Western-backed coup breaks out there. It’s almost as big a coincidence as Jason having his “Crowdsource the Truth” team member Joe Napoli in the crowd in Las Vegas when the worst lone gunman massacre in history breaks out there.
The founders of Aerocine (who attended NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts) traveled the world, and deployed their drone with 3-man teams: pilot, camera operator, and aircraft technician.

How would the snipers figure out the best positions to shoot from? Searching on Google Earth would leave footprints. Strolling the streets checking out rooftops and balconies might attract attention and get picked up on CCTV surveillance.
Hmmm, what about a convenient cover story of flying an experimental drone with high-definition video capability through a site with no economic or military value? If anyone asks, you can show them all the paperwork that must surely have been issued to them by the government to access a radiological disaster zone that has been abandoned for 30 years. “We needed to test it before filming”. Of course a drone can’t help but record the views and angles from rooftops and balconies.
The Daily Beast had an exclusive article claiming the snipers were from Ukraine SBU (the post-Soviet version of the KGB)’s elite counter-terrorism Alfa Team, and had been trained by Russian special forces.
Many at the time felt that the coup was a Soros/Clinton/Obama/CIA-backed revolution, aimed at weakening Russia and monopolizing the gas pipeline infrastructure that brings most of Europe’s natural gas supply in.
After this successful mission in 2014, the team took their drone to the United Arab Emirates; specifically, Dubai
Here’s the first test flight of their rig, which was made by assembling off-the-shelf equipment.
Who are these guys?
Did they get those trenchcoats at Spies-R-Us?
For some unknown reason, Aerocine changed their name to Aerial Robotics and conducted the first “legal” drone flight in New York City, working closely with the Federal Aviation Authority. This was a big deal!
Duke Robotics even boasts a Rothschild on the board.
Ukraine has been brought to the forefront of US political discussion recently due to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecution of lobbyists Paul Manafort, Tony Podesta and Rick Gates, who took millions from Ukraine. Manafort was formerly Roger Stone’s partner in Manafort-Stone, another lobbying firm.
Jason Goodman’s good friend and journalism mentor Lee Stranahan, whom he has known for 20+ years, is also an expert on Ukraine. He keeps claiming that Ukraine is the key to #SpyGate and meddling in the 2016 election, although no other journalists or publications are running with this story.
Jason frequently has Robyn Gritz on his show. She is quoted on the Wikipedia page for Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska. She was working for Robert Mueller and Andrew McCabe in the FBI when they recruited Deripaska as an agent who spent $25 million of his own money on a mission trying to rescue American CIA agent Robert Levison from Iran.
So Jason leaves his Hollywood career to fly drones. Their first mission is to Ukraine, where his team lands right before a CIA-backed coup breaks out. Was Jason with the team, boots on the ground? Or leading from the home office as CEO?
The video credits Oscar Ohlson as the drone pilot. Company co-founder Jeff Brink was definitely there, according to his Instagram:
Jason certainly wasn’t shy about basking in the glory of his company’s achievements. Here he is in Cannes, France:
The next thing we know, Goodman is starting a YouTube channel. One of the debut episodes was 2 hours with Roger Stone:
Another early episode was dedicated to bashing President Trump, which is interesting given Goodman’s post-election 200+ Anti-Clinton shows with Charles Ortel.
What is Project TRUTH ENGINE? Who is it a project for? IARPA? DARPA? LARPers? All of the above?
Jason Goodman hit the big time when he linked up with George Webb, introduced by Lee Stranahan. Within a couple of weeks, he had introduced George Webb to Dr Jerome Corsi. Corsi fed George with steak, George fed Corsi with stories: that he was part of the WikiLeaks network, that he used to participate in thumb-drive drops in parks where he gave information to Mike Ratner (died 5/11/16) who passed it on to John Jones (died 8/16/16). Dead men can verify no tales. George also said that he met Julian Assange in Australia in 1984. At that time Julian would have been 12 and part of the Santiniketan Park Association MKULTRA cult.
Julian Assange was living in psychologist Anne Hamilton-Byrne’s cult where all the children had white hair and interchangeable names, when George Webb claims he met him at age 12
Self-described Zionist George Webb Sweigert must have passed the test of B’Nai B’rith Fund manager Corsi with flying colors, because a few days later both George and Jason met with Dr Corsi in his office.
Two weeks after this, they used Jason’s YouTube channel and George’s fan base to shut down the 8th busiest port in the United States with a fake “dirty bomb” scare propagated through social media. Jason made sure he was texting back and forth with Jerome Corsi all the way through the event. George checked in with CIA case officer Robert David Steele before he provided the hashtags for the social media blast. In CryptoBeast #16 we heard from a former insider of this operation how an FBI contract informant with the code name “Deep Uranium” representing the shadowy “Hudson Intelligence Group” was feeding them the easily debunkable information that drove the operation.
They could have got some great shots of the container ship coming into port and the containers being examined with a drone.
It’s curious that none of this information appeared in Defango’s 2-hour doxx special on Jason Goodman.
[UPDATE: Defango claims that he covered all of this material before a year ago, just on his Merlin Defango backup channel where he deleted many [Manny] of the videos. He acknowledged that he did miss the Ukraine coup angle. I have updated the screenshot of Super-Goodman to credit that it came from Defango’s video.]
The company was profiled in Inc magazine’s 2017 “30 Under 30”, after Jason Goodman left. They exceeded $1 million in sales in their first year.
Started a company, got lots of Hollywood and (perhaps) intel contracts, made millions, raised millions…went back to being an electrician? The CEO went to begging for Patreon subs and George Webb sleeping on his couch?
It feels like there are parts of this story that we’re not being told.
Less than 2 weeks after the cyber-attack targeting the container ship Maersk Memphis shut down the Port of Charleston for 8 hours, the Maersk shipping line experienced another, far more severe cyber-attack. A devastating ransomware virus called “NonPetya” cost more than $300 million.
Maersk has revealed that a devastating ransomware attack which struck businesses across Europe in 2017 required close to a “complete infrastructure” overhaul and the reinstallation of thousands of machines.
The Danish transport and logistics conglomerate fell prey to a campaign which used a modified version of the Petya ransomware, NonPetya, bringing down IT systems and operational controls across the board.
Maersk, a container ship and supply vessel operator, previously warned that the ransomware attack would cause losses of up to $300 million due to “serious business interruption.”
The firm, with offices in 130 countries and a workforce of close to 90,000, was one of the most high-profile victims of the Petya campaign, which spread rapidly by utilizing the leaked US National Security Agency (NSA) exploit EternalBlue, which targets Microsoft Windows systems.
The same exploit was used to spread WannaCry, ransomware which caused horrendous disruption to healthcare systems including the UK’s National Health Service (NHS).
In Maersk’s case, while no customer or business data is believed to have been exposed, the firm endured severe disruption and was forced to halt operations as the ransomware spread through core IT systems.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum this week, Møller-Maersk Chairman Jim Hagemann Snabe shared further details on the attack, which resulted in a reinstall of “our entire infrastructure,” according to the executive.
In total, Maersk reinstalled 4,000 servers, 45,000 PCs, and 2,500 applications in what the chairman called a “heroic effort” over ten days, one in which the executive said may have usually taken up to six months to implement.
“Imagine a company where a ship with 10 to 20 thousand containers is entering a port every 15 minutes, and for 10 days, you have no IT,” Hagemann commented. “It’s almost impossible to even imagine.”
However, thanks to the efforts of staff, the company only experienced a 20 percent drop in volume, while the remaining 80 percent of operations were handled manually until systems were up and running once more.
Hagemann said the ransomware attack was a “very significant wake-up call for Maersk, and you could say, a very expensive one.”
The Petya attack originated in Ukraine and quickly spread worldwide.
Where did that cyber-attack originate from? Ukraine.
In fact, Ukraine itself seems to have been the target of this unprecedented in scale cyberattack which came on the eve of Ukraine’s national holiday. It shut down radiation monitoring systems at the Chernobyl Power Plant.
Who do we know that was a virus sales guy, who used to work for McAfee where he was a colleague of Russian-born author of “Operation Shady RAT” Dmitri Alperovich (founder of Crowdstrike)?
Oh yes…George Webb.
Curiouser and curiouser.
Who else do we know that knows John McAfee, George Webb, and Jason Goodman?

George Webb has made a rebuttal video to clarify some of his claims. I am interested in veracity, so if anyone else mentioned here would like to make a video response to clarify or dispute anything I will include it on this page.
George definitely doesn’t think Jason was in on any “Government Action”, then gaslights about the years he met Assange. Now he met him when he was 16 at seminars teaching kids about UNIX. He taught at Melbourne University, Monash and LaTrobe. It could have been one of those, he saw about 4 kids the same age with the same dyed hair. He’s not claiming that it was Julian Assange. “They did have this thing out in the Dandenongs which was like children of the corn”
[Update 4/12/18 9:48pm]
Here is what George Webb said on the Hagmann Report about WikiLeaks on 5/25/17. I have edited it down to the specific WikiLeaks comments for brevity, original source here
[Update 5/12/18 8:52am]
George Webb made another video about me. In typical style, he pretends to know a bunch of stuff which turns out to be incorrect.
Let me clarify:
It’s Urbanise not Urbanize
I am a co-founder of the company and helped set up their Dubai office in 2007 (when it was called Majitek)
I don’t own Urbanise, it is a public company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange since 2014 UBN.AX
I have not been a substantial shareholder in the company for many years
I’ve never owned a private jet
I’ve never met any members of the UAE royal family (but I follow a couple of them on Twitter, which I guess to “researchers” like George makes me besties with them)
You can read most of this on my LinkedIn or Wikipedia pages. I guess George had the skills to find those but not to convey the information from the Web to his YouTube channel with accuracy. Or perhaps he can’t help himself, and just has to distort and add his own narratives to any information he presents.
I also made a video about my story. George Webb supporters who think that if I question anything he says that’s proof my money must come from deep state ratlines, and since I’m from New Zealand I must be a spy because there’s a “Five Eyes” intelligence sharing agreement, should check it out:
[Update 5/12/18 11:30pm]
The Rothschilds sure seem interested in these drone companies! What are the mathematically probabilities that this story could connected to 2 different Rothschilds, one putting guns on drones, one putting HD cameras on them?
After Jason left Aero(Cine)bo for the greener pastures of Roger Stone, Dr Corsi and George Webb, his Tisch schoolmate Brian Streem teamed up with Rick Rothschild to film Ferraris, the Statue of Liberty and the London Eye with 6k RED EPIC drones.
Who better than one of the Rothschilds to run consult to projects putting “Eyes in the Skies”?
In 2015Aerocine Aerobo teamed up with #MeToo disgraced newsman Matt Lauer, to film him cycling
[Update 6/12/118 9:20am]
The plot thickens. Here is George and Jason down in Roger Stone’s neck of the woods, meeting Jason’s ex-wife who is Ukrainian (and a former Trump employee, who praises him enthusiastically). Interestingly, both George and Jason speak Russian in this video. George sounds particularly fluent, although I don’t speak Russian myself. His intonation and pronunciation sounds smooth and practiced.
(note: original video deleted since publishing, this is a substitute)
Tatyana Petruk was groomed from an early age in the Soviet Union to be an international gymnast. According to her resumé at Jason’s company 21st Century 3D, she left the circus to join Donald Trump.
She has a very special set of skills, which include “glow sticks”
Queen Tut found another clip of J.Go speaking Russian:

Who wants to feel homesick? I think this drone video by Eric Cheng is my favorite so far. Check out Cary Frame’s Monowheel at 2:56, the Lamplighters at 3:41 , dust devils coming from the Embrace burn at 5:47,
Unlike the Burning Man Director’s one, this is free from commercial advertising and dangerous swooping up on people from behind at low altitude.
