(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) The Biden Defense Department reportedly had a fix as early as Sunday on the deadly implosion of the deep sea submersible Titan, raising questions and concerns about why the information wasn’t made public until Thursday, when recovery efforts turned into a salvage mission for the sub and the crew of five who died deep in the North Atlantic.
The search for the allegedly missing Titanic-bound sub dominated news cycles for days, overshadowing a series of incendiary reports centering on the alleged criminal corruption of the Biden family, culminating on Thursday with IRS whistleblower testimony delivered to the House Ways and Means Committee that directly implicated the president and showed his Justice Department interfering with the criminal investigation of Hunter Biden.
New reporting from the Wall Street Journal revealed that the U.S. Navy “first heard the Titan sub implosion hours after the submersible began its mission, officials involved in the search said.”
In the immediate aftermath of the sub’s disappearance, a “top secret U.S. Navy acoustic detection system designed to spot enemy submarines” heard “what it suspected was the sound of an implosion near the debris site discovered Thursday and reported its findings to the commander on site, U.S. defense officials said,” the WSJ reported.
The new information contradicted the days-long narrative that a desperate search was being conducted to find the Titan sub.
Sunday: US Navy detects implosion of the Titan, doesn’t inform public
Monday: “TITAN IS MISSING!!”
Tuesday: “BANGING IS HEARD!!”
Wednesday: “RUNNING OUT OF AIR!!”
Thursday: “WRECKAGE FOUND!!”
They knew the outcome 4 days ago, yet they kept the drama going for the entire week

Officials claimed the information was withheld “because it wanted to ensure search-and-rescue operations continued and couldn’t say for sure it was an implosion.” The official explanation received a wave of skeptical backlash.
“The Biden administration knew the Titan submarine imploded Sunday,” tweeted the New York Post’s Miranda Divine. “But waited until today to make it public. Convenient smokescreen for today’s House Ways & Means release of IRS whistleblower testimony of DOJ sabotage of the Hunter Biden investigation.”
If the submarine exploded on Sunday and the Navy knew about it the whole time that means the entire “US Military picked up a banging noise on the sea floor!” news cycle was a lazy psy-op to keep the story going.
This was all a distraction.
God help us.
