 Au programme cette semaine: 

- Actualité mondiale, Moyen-Orient, le Canada et la dérive totalitaire de nos pays.

- Fukushima: est-ce que le bassin d'entreposage du combustible utilisé (1600 crayons de combustible d'uranium et de plutonium) situé dans le bâtiment du réacteur no.4 risque de causer un événement d'extinction de la vie dans l'hémisphère nord de la planète? Selon de plus en plus d'experts et ingénieurs dans le domaine du nucléaire, c'est une menace réelle et pressante puisque la structure même de ce bassin est fortement compromise et ne saurait résister à un autre tremblement de terre majeur au Japon.

C'est en rendez-vous le lundi dès 15h pour l'émission la plus écoutée de CHOQ FM, la radio officielle de l'Université du Québec à Montréal !

Le nouveau code de conduite de la SRC inquiète le syndicat

 (Québec) L'imposition d'un nouveau code de conduite aux employés de Radio-Canada risque de transformer les journalistes en porte-parole des ministres conservateurs, craint le Syndicat des communications de Radio-Canada (SCRC).
Un grief contre le code en question a été déposé à la mi-avril par le Syndicat, qui en a informé ses membres samedi dernier, explique au Soleil le président du SCRC, Alex Levasseur.
Le président dénonce que la haute direction de Radio-Canada exige des employés l'équivalent d'un «serment d'allégeance» aux ministres du gouvernement Harper, au même titre que les fonctionnaires fédéraux.
Des modifications ont été apportées au Code de conduite qui encadre la pratique des employés de Radio-Canada le 2 avril dernier. Le précédent code datait de novembre 2006.
Parmi les irritants pour le Syndicat, l'obligation que les employés «aident les ministres à rendre compte au Parlement et à la population canadienne».
Une mesure qui va à l'encontre de la «saine distance» qui doit séparer le gouvernement et le diffuseur public, dénonce M. Levasseur. Toute la différence entre faire un travail de journaliste et celui de porte-parole, poursuit-il.
«C'est complètement offensant, dit le président du SCRC. On ne peut pas accepter d'être à la solde ou de nous asservir au pouvoir politique. [...] Il faut dénoncer cela.»

The journalist: Homeland Security's top terrorist?


Freelance journalist Carlos Miller was documenting a law enforcement raid on the southern Florida’s Occupy Wall Street offshoot, Occupy Miami, when he was arrested earlier in 2012 while filming police — for the third time in just a few years. After investigating why authorities in Miami may have singled him out during the ordeal (in which, he claims, he was only filming the event), Miller stumbled upon some evidence that exposes just why he was targeted by the local branch of the Department of Homeland Security.
Apparently, documenting and telling the truth is now a crime in this country, punishable by law.

Canada: Orwellian 'Hate Speech' laws Target Non Jews


I can tell you that headline wasn't in Calgary....it could be in the National Post but I can tell you that didn't originate in Calgary'
That was the response of Rick Hanson, Chief of the Calgary police when confronted by Press TV with a hateful headline claiming that Iraqis worship the devil, printed by one of Canada's most prominent broadsheet newspapers.

Quebec beekeeper accused of Nazi war crimes


Propped up by a shovel that acts as his cane, Vladimir Katriuk putters about his wooded lot in rural Quebec, lovingly caring for his bees and appearing to have few worries other than this season's honey yield.
But a prominent Jewish human-rights organization insists there's much more to the cordial 91-year-old beekeeper — whom they allege is one of the world's most-wanted Nazi war criminals.

Mounties disciplined for bad behaviour - impaired driving, watching porn and sex with prostitutes described in report


RCMP officers have been reprimanded for impaired driving, careless use of firearms, using the force's computers to access pornographic websites and cavorting with prostitutes, according to the Mounties' most recent disciplinary report.
In the last reporting period for 2010-2011, 65 regular and civilian members faced formal discipline hearings; 13 of them resigned from the RCMP and one was dismissed. Other code of conduct violations included using excessive force, having sex in an unmarked RCMP vehicle and filing false overtime claims.

Canadian spymaster’s card found in Gadhafi’s intelligence complex


A Canadian spymaster’s business card was recovered last year in a trove of intelligence documents in Libya, providing a physical link between Canadian security agencies and Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi’s spy services.
William “Jack” Hooper, a globetrotting deputy director for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, was apparently among the Western intelligence officials who had cultivated ties with Libya, raising new questions about possible Canadian involvement in the arrests and interrogations of Arab-Canadians in their homelands following the 2001 al-Qaeda attacks on the United States.

Secret Service Very Concerned Local TV News Station Doing Actual Investigative Journalism


Pentagon admits it has no photo evidence of Bin Laden's death

 

Pentagon officials recently disclosed to the Associated Press (AP) that they could not find any photo or video evidence to confirm that Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden was killed in the Navy Seal raid in Pakistan a year ago.

Obama: Romney would not have got bin Laden


Dear President Pussy. YOU did not "get" Osama Bin Laden. The real Bin Laden died in December 2001, and whoever got whacked a year ago was just some poor schmuck in the wrong place at the wrong time. Repeated sets of faked photos leaked by the White House did not fool anyone.

... which is why the judge is now refusing to allow the release of any more photos, which are probably no more convincing than your earlier efforts.
Another point. Whoever it was that was murdered in their home a year ago, you personally had nothing to do with it. Pakistan staged the initial raid, then you sent in a team to grab the body and the headlines, then they dumped the body at sea when the fraud became known. You personally were not there. You were safe and sound inside the White House.

(Note to the ministry of Propaganda: When you stage a photo of a tense meeting in the situation room to give to the media, REMEMBER TO ACTUALLY TURN ON THOSE LAPTOPS!)
Your commemorative toys to the contrary...

Judge Rules Osama Bin Laden Death Photos Should Stay Secret


Fox News Announces Ron Paul Has Qualified

 

The media asks: Where is Ron Paul?


 

CBS said "Romney is the Republican Presidential Candidate, Primaries are over." O'Reilly was on 'confirming' Romney "Won." Really Now?


I was amazed that the CBS morning show, said that the Republican Presidential primaries are over as Mitt Romney is the Republican Presidential Candidate. They even had Bill O'Reilly on talking about Romney and how he has won.
I have a question for them..... When did Ron Paul quit the race? Funny, I have not heard about him dropping out? In fact I have read how he has won primaries recently.
How is it that the MSM can blatantly lie like that? How do they expect people to even remotely consider them honest news?

 

Ron Paul – Election Fraud Confirmed in North Dakota!

 

Ron Paul Wins 5 Delegates in Pennsylvania; Romney Officially Has Zero

 

Ron Paul 2012 Wins Majority Of Washington Delegates To Convention, Other States Expected To Follow


Ron Paul's 2012 campaign has won the majority of Washington's delegates to the Republican National Convention, and a number of other states are expected to follow suit, pointing to a hectic convention in which Mitt Romney's path to the nomination may face a major insurgent opponent.

 

Colorado further evidence Ron Paul will challenge Romney in Tampa


The Ron Paul campaign has consistently maintained that it has won far more delegates than is generally reported by the media. The Associated Press projects Romney’s delegate count to be well over 600, more than ten times their projections for Ron Paul. However, Colorado has provided some evidence that the Paul campaign’s demise has been greatly exaggerated.
Colorado completed its state convention yesterday. Under the headline, “Romney lost Colo. caucuses, gets most delegates,” Real Clear Politics reported the results this way.
“GOP has chosen 13 Romney delegates and six Santorum delegates. The remaining 17 delegates are unpledged, meaning they are free to choose any Republican candidate for president.”

 

Romney loses to Paul in his own state


What may be the most embarrassing moment yet for Mitt Romney, during the race for the 2012 Republican Nomination, happened over the weekend in the very state in which he is the former Governor and calls home.

Romney Nightmare: Ron Paul Resurfaces Yet Again


While the media has done everything possible to make Ron Paul invisible to the public, he keeps doing annoying little things to grab people’s attention — like belatedly winning the most delegates in both Iowa and Minnesota. And showing up in Rasmussen polling as the only Republican who could beat Barack Obama. The truth is often hard to swallow.
And the truth that establishment Republicans are trying hardest to ignore is that Paul could create a nightmare for Romney at the Republican Convention in Tampa. If he can prevent Mittman from getting to the magic 1,144 mark before August 27, all hell could break loose at the convention.
And if that happens, it’s not unthinkable that many Romney supporters who have been holding their noses could start shifting to Paul.

A Friendship Dating to 1976 Resonates in 2012


The friendship between Mitt Romney and Benjamin Netanyahu, little known to outsiders, is now rich with political intrigue.
Great. Another whore for Israel is anointed the candidate.

RNC might block entire Nevada delegation over Ron Paul delegate mischief


The Republican National Committee is warning the Nevada GOP that if supporters of Ron Paul are allowed to take too many slots for the national convention, the party may opt against seating the state's entire convention delegation.
That does it! I am officially quitting the Republican party. I am now an anarchist! Anyone know where the membership forms are?
Seriously, the GOP just told its own members that they are only allowing Romney-favoring delegations entry to the National Convention.

MK Ultra 2012 - Cops Caught Mass Drugging Teens And Dropping Them At Occupy Minnesota


Police in Minnesota have been caught on video picking up teenagers, doing drug experiments on them, and the dropping them off at the local Occupy protest to discredit the movement.

 

Drug-dealing cops using Occupy protesters as test subjects, snitches?


RogueMedia.org
In this screengrab, cops escort a drug user into a patrol car to be taken to a secret warehouse where the "test subject" consumes the drug of their choice. It is part of the highly unethical "DRE" program.
OKLAHOMA CITY – In what strikes this reporter as highly unethical and likely illegal, police officers, highway patrol troopers and sheriff's deputies from across Minnesota have been allegedly preying on drug-impaired youths, getting them high and observing their reactions, not unlike laboratory rats.
Norman-based blogger Kaye Beach, with Axxiom for Liberty, informed Red Dirt Report about this disturbing program and that similar activities may be taking place here in Oklahoma.
RogueMedia.org, with help from Twin Cities Indymedia, Communities United Against Police Brutality and Occupy Minneapolis, reported that their undercover investigation, revealed shocking stories of cops offering young people drugs and taken to a secret state-owned warehouse where vast amounts of drugs were consumed by the young test subjects under the watchful eyes of interested police. The activists also witnessed, in Minneapolis' Peavey Plaza, "police dropping off impaired people" where Occupy Minneapolis congregates.

#OWS May Day Protests Met With Heavy Police Presence, Canine Units, And National Guard Troops With Machine Guns


As Occupy Wall Street May Day protests start in NYC marchers streaming live are reporting a heavy police presence, multiple canine units and National Guard units armed with machine guns.
Arrests are now imminent as protesters have just taken over all of 5th avenue following scuffles in the streets with police.

May Day Eve Quickly Turns Ugly In San Francisco


A day that is expected to be filled with anti-establishment protests all around the globe began early last night with a roving band of "anarchists" smashing car windows and store fronts in San Francisco's Mission District. The mini-riot (which was technically on April 30, but still) may have started as a "ruckus street party" organized by Occupy Oakland protesters who invaded their sister city last night, but whoever was responsible appeared to show little regard for the property of either the 1% or the other 99.
Meaning they are hired thugs committing acts of violence for the media to use to demonize the peaceful protesters. Same crap the FBI pulled during COINTELPRO days.

First #OWS May Day General Strike Violence Reported At #OSF


The first Occupy Wall Street May Day General Strike violence is reported in San Francisco and denounced as the work of Agent Provocateurs.

Thousands of Occupy activists descend on dozens of U.S. cities for biggest May Day protests in nation's history


The Occupy Movement has called for a general strike, urging workers and students across the U.S. to stay at home today in an act of defiance
Events planned in 135 cities, including Oakland, Chicago and San Francisco
Protests focused in New York where thousands of activists are targetting financial firms and plan to block the Brooklyn Bridge
Keep it peaceful and don't give the media any excuses to portray the protests as evil and violent. There have already been incidents of vandalism, but those are most like public relations operatives hired by the Wall Street money-junkies.

 

Death Of The Constitution: From Preemptive Attacks To Preemptive Protest Crackdowns


The Orwellian nightmare of ‘thought crime’ prosecution is becoming more of a reality in the US as the government launches preemptive raids and crackdowns on Occupy protestors.

While history may most remember President Bush for preemptive attacks on other nations Obama’s legacy will be permanently scarred by launching preemptive crackdowns against on protestors wishing to do nothing more than exercise their first amendment rights to demand the government change status quo corruption.
Clearly the constitution has all but abolished as we have gone from the land of the free to the land of the slave with no rights except to work, pay taxes, be imprisoned indefinitely without trial, be tortured, tracked by drones, and be assassinated as the government sees fit all under the powers of the wonderful NDAA
As Gawker reported activists homes were raider prior to yesterday’s May Day protests in several preemptive raids  by police and the FBI.

NYPD Raids Activists’ Homes Before May Day Protests

A day before Occupy Wall Street hopes to shut down New York and cities across the country in massive May Day protests, the NYPD visited at least three activist homes in New York and interrogated residents about plans for tomorrow’s protest.
Today “there was definitely an upswing in law enforcement activity that seemed to fit the pattern of targeting what police might view as political residences,” said Gideon Oliver, the president of the New York Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, which offers legal to support to Occupy Wall Street. “They were asking what are your May Day plans, do you know who the leaders are—these are classic political surveillance questions.”
Oliver said the National Lawyer’s Guild is aware of at least five instances of NYPD paying activists visits, including one where the FBI was involved in questioning. (He wouldn’t elaborate.) We spoke to three of these activists.

Private Prison Corporations Are Slave Traders


The nation’s largest private prison company, the Corrections Corporation of America, is on a buying spree. With a war chest of $250 million, the corporation, which is listed on the New York Stock Exchange, this month sent letters to 48 states, offering to buy their prisons outright. To ensure their profitability, the corporation insists that it be guaranteed that the prisons be kept at least 90 percent full. Plus, the corporate jailers demand a 20-year management contract, on top of the profits they expect to extract by spending less money per prisoner.
It is very depressing to think, that at this point in the 21st century in this country, one of the hottest corporations going is a private prison corporation.
Documentation of abuse and neglect of prisoners held at CCA facilities is legion, not the least of which are claims of sexual abuse and medical neglect against women inmates, and holding children in inhumane conditions while families were waiting for US immigration decisions. One of the most glaring examples of this is in the CCA-owned Hutto facility in Texas.
A Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) employee at the T. Don Hutto immigration detention facility in Taylor, TX today was charged with sexually abusing numerous female immigration detainees. The American Civil Liberties Union is actively investigating the sexual abuse of female detainees at Hutto, where the detention of families was halted last year after the successful settlement of an ACLU lawsuit charging that children were being imprisoned in inhumane conditions while their parents awaited immigration decisions. As part of its investigation, the ACLU has obtained via the Texas Public Information Act copies of both the Intergovernmental Services Agreement (IGSA) between Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), CCA and Williamson County, under which the Hutto facility is operated, and ICE's own transport policy. Both documents are being made available to the public and can be found online at: www.aclu.org/huttodocs. The opportunity for abuse was the result of a failure by CCA officials to abide by the IGSA that female immigration detainees not be isolated with male staff members.
The high recidivism rate in America's prison systems (51% by some estimates) guarantees that there will always be more prisoners to throw into these private systems for profit. But at what cost, not only to these prisoners, but to society at large?
Perhaps we as a nation need to move more toward a rehabilitation model, where it is possible, rather than an incarceration model; because at a 51% recidivism rate, the incarceration model doesn't seem to be working toward bettering society, but rather toward the end of fattening the coffers of both public and private prison systems.

TSA defends patting down hysterical 4-year-old who had just learned about ‘stranger danger’ in school


Isabella had just learned about "stranger danger" at school, her grandmother said, adding that the girl was afraid and unsure about what was going on.
"She started to cry, saying 'No I don't want to,' and when we tried talking to her she ran," Croft said. "They yelled, 'We are going to shut down the airport if you don't grab her.'"
But she said the family's main concern was the lack of understanding from TSA agents that they were dealing with a 4-year-old child, not a terror suspect.
"TSA has reviewed the incident and determined that our officers followed proper screening procedures in conducting a modified pat-down on the child," the agency said.
"...proper screening procedures...", my astrolabe: this is a 4 year old child, for Pete's sake!!
And it does so remind me of that wonderful quote by the comedian Ron White: "you can't fix stupid!!"

Family Misses Flight After TSA Gives Pat-Down To Girl With Cerebral Palsy


The Transportation Security Administration is once again the subject of national scrutiny, this time after aggressively screening a 7-year-old female passenger with cerebral palsy which caused her family to miss their flight.
Since Dina walks with the aid of leg braces and crutches, she cannot pass through airport metal detectors, and must instead submit to a pat-down by TSA agents.
Dina, who is also reportedly developmentally disabled, is usually frightened by the procedure. Her family reportedly requests that agents on hand take the time to introduce themselves to her.
However, the agents on duty at the time began to handle her aggressively instead.
It appears that the sole qualifications for becoming a TSA agent are an absence of real intelligence, and a brutishly belligerent attitude toward their victims.
And to members of the TSA apparatchik, ALL passengers, even little girls with cerebral palsy who need braces to walk, are "terrorists".

 

The TSA Is Still Groping Children In Airports


The TSA has lied about policy changes for children and the elderly as agents still coldly refer to kids as suspects subjecting them to intrusive jail style pat downs.

TSA Declares a Scared 4 Year Old Child a “High Security Threat”, Proceeds to Terrorize Her and Her Mother


My two young children, aged four and six, were particularly excited their Grandmother was catching the same flight out of Wichita. Since she lives in California, and we live in Montana, they’ve never had a chance to fly with her. My children and I went through without an incident. My Mother, however, had triggered the alarm. She was asked to go through the scanners again, and when the source of the alarm could not be identified she was told to sit aside and await a pat-down. When my Four-year-old daughter noticed her Grandmother, she excitedly ran over to give her a hug, as children often do. They made very brief contact, no longer than a few seconds. The Transportation Security Officers(TSO) who were present responded to this very simple action in the worst way imaginable.

Feds: Crooked TSA Screeners Arrested in Drug Trafficking Scheme


Multiple airport screeners have been arrested for allegedly taking handsome bribes to look the other way while loads of illegal drugs slipped through security at Los Angeles International Airport, federal officials announced today.
Two current and two former officials at the Transportation Security Administration were arrested in the last 48 hours in connection with at least five incidents from February 2011 to July 2011 in which on duty screeners took payments of up to $2,400 to allow suitcases filled with drugs to pass unimpeded through X-ray machines at LAX, U.S. Attorney Andre Birotte Jr.'s office said in a statement.

TSA defends pat-down of 4-year-old at Kan. airport


The grandmother of a 4-year-old girl who became hysterical during a security screening at a Kansas airport said Wednesday that the child was forced to undergo a pat-down after hugging her, with security agents yelling and calling the crying girl an uncooperative suspect.
The incident has been garnering increasing media and online attention since the child's mother, Michelle Brademeyer of Montana, detailed the ordeal in a public Facebook post last week. The Transportation Security Administration is defending its agents, despite new procedures aimed at reducing pat-downs of children.

TSA screeners charged in LA drug trafficking probe


Duane Eleby, a suspected drug courier, was all set to sneak 10 pounds of cocaine through a security checkpoint at Los Angeles International Airport last February with the help of a former Transportation Security Administration employee and a screener.
Eleby, however, bungled the plan by going to the wrong terminal and was arrested after another TSA screener found the cocaine, which set in motion a series of undercover operations that led to Wednesday's announcement that two former and current TSA employees had been indicted on federal drug trafficking and bribery charges.

POLICE STATE: "Robots R’US": Military-style Drones on 63 Military Bases In The USA


Remember the NDAA bill passed last year that was signed quietly into law on New Year’s Eve by President Obama? The Administration assured one and all that it would not apply to military operations on U.S. soil or against American citizens.
It now turns out that the NDAA is being interpreted as authorization to deploy military drones (unmanned aerial vehicles or UAVs) into domestic airspace. A major overhaul of the Federal Aviation Administration’s control system is permitting the deployment of drones
Recently, Alexander Higgins.com reported:
“A lawsuit has forced the FAA to reveal the location of 63 Secret Drone bases located inside the United States some of which will be the starting point for more drone warfare.
Should there be major domestic unrest coming to a head in the US, I wouldn't bet against drone attacks as part of the strategy to subdue it; possibly with less than lethal weaponry aboard, but I wouldn't even bet against such drones being outfitted with bombs and bullets.

 

New York judge rules an IP address is not a person


A judge in New York has ruled that Internet searches and downloads and other activities done on your personal computer do not mean you are the person behind them. This ruling could cause a problem when it comes to CISPA.

Former hero of the German environmental movement: "we have been misguided by the IPCC about the natural fluctuations in the climate in the past thousands of years"


For years I believed the science of the IPCC was solid. I had the famous hockey stick graph (a graph purporting to show that current global temperatures are by far the highest in the last 1000 years, editor) in all my presentations. But then I read the book The Hockey Stick Illusion by Andrew Montford, which is very critical about this graph. Slowly I started to realize we have been misguided by the IPCC about the natural fluctuations in the climate in the past thousands of years. The whole purpose of the IPCC has been to get rid of the so-called Medieval Warm Period, a warm period around the year 1000 when the Vikings settled on Greenland and were able to live there for a couple of centuries. After this warm period we have had the Little Ice Age which coincided with a very quiet sun. Many papers have been published in the last few years which show that the Little Ice Age was not a local European phenomena, as the IPCC suggests.

Climategate and Fakegate


On February 20, 2012, another global warming scandal broke, this one involving criminal behavior that is likely to be much more difficult to cover up. Peter Gleick, president of the Pacific Institute and an elected member of the National Academy of Sciences, confessed to using fraud to obtain confidential corporate documents from The Heartland Institute and arranging for them to be posted online. The scandal became known as Fakegate because Gleick also circulated a fake memo he claimed outlined Heartland's "climate strategy."

 

FEULNER: Behind ‘Fakegate’


What could be more American than encouraging a robust debate on one of the most controversial issues of the day? The answer - for some on the left, anyway - is: Lie about your opponents, and make a pathetic effort to discredit them.
That, at least, is what an activist named Peter Gleick decided to do in a backward attempt to promote his view that global warming is unquestionably and primarily a man-made phenomenon - one that will cause calamitous changes in the environment.

The global Elite have many different clubs they frequent where they discuss plans to achieve their plan for global governance.

They are also integral in coercing elected officials into supporting global carbon taxing that will funnel exorbitant amounts of money into the hands of the Elite to fund their march toward global governance...

 

Human genes engineered into experimental GMO rice being grown in Kansas


Unless the rice you buy is certified organic, or comes specifically from a farm that tests its rice crops for genetically modified (GM) traits, you could be eating rice tainted with actual human genes. The only known GMO with inbred human traits in cultivation today, a GM rice product made by biotechnology company Ventria Bioscience is currently being grown on 3,200 acres in Junction City, Kansas -- and possibly elsewhere -- and most people have no idea about it.
Since about 2006, Ventria has been quietly cultivating rice that has been genetically modified (GM) with genes from the human liver for the purpose of taking the artificial proteins produced by this "Frankenrice" and using them in pharmaceuticals. With approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Ventria has taken one of the most widely cultivated grain crops in the world today, and essentially turned it into a catalyst for producing new drugs.
Whoever signed off on this from the USDA should be fired, and right the heck now!!
Of all the completely, horrifically stupid decisions the USDA has made, with a huge potential for unintended consequences,this has GOT to rank right up there at the top!!

 

Chemist declares fluoride to be 'one of the greatest public health threats of modern times'


"Once ingested, fluoride compounds attack the structural integrity of our insides," says Ellison. "Collagen, a web-like network connecting our skeletal system to muscles, is torn apart by fluoride. We feel it as joint stiffness, ligament damage, and aching bones. This same mechanism leads to browning of teeth, an outcome known as fluorosis."
Ellison adds that laboratory studies dating back decades have shown that fluoride spurs the mutation of mammalian DNA cells, which can promote the growth of cancer cells. Various population studies, he says, have shown that fluoride ingestion can increase a person's risk of developing bone cancer by as much as 700 percent.

 

Serious blow to dark matter theories? New study finds mysterious lack of dark matter in Sun's neighborhood


The most accurate study so far of the motions of stars in the Milky Way has found no evidence for dark matter in a large volume around the Sun. According to widely accepted theories, the solar neighbourhood was expected to be filled with dark matter, a mysterious invisible substance that can only be detected indirectly by the gravitational force it exerts. But a new study by a team of astronomers in Chile has found that these theories just do not fit the observational facts. This may mean that attempts to directly detect dark matter particles on Earth are unlikely to be successful.
"Dark Matter" is a theory invented to explain away why the mathematics of the Big Bang do not work out in terms of time and acceleration. There is no evidence that dark matter actually exists; it is just a useful construct to reconcile the theory of General Relativity with the underlying prime assumption of a moment of supreme creation. In this, Dark Matter is not unlike epicycles, another imaginary construct used to reconcile the observed motions of the planets with the concept of an Earth-centered universe.
Sooner or later someone is going to have to stand up and say that the Big Bang is just religion disguised as science, and all these imaginary constructs like the Higgs Boson and Dark Matter won't change that harsh reality. Like epicycles, they are doomed to be discarded as scientific hokum.

 

Do Milky Way's Companions Spell Trouble for Dark Matter?


Astronomers from the University of Bonn in Germany have discovered a vast structure of satellite galaxies and clusters of stars surrounding our galaxy, stretching out across a million light-years. The work challenges the existence of dark matter, part of the standard model for the evolution of the universe.
"Dark Matter" is a theory invented to explain away why the mathematics of the Big Bang do not work out in terms of time and acceleration.

“We are Preparing for Massive Civil War,” Says DHS Informant


In a riveting interview on TruNews Radio, Wednesday, private investigator Doug Hagmann said high-level, reliable sources told him the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is preparing for “massive civil war” in America.
“Folks, we’re getting ready for one massive economic collapse,” Hagmann told TruNews host Rick Wiles.
“We have problems . . . The federal government is preparing for civil uprising,” he added, “so every time you hear about troop movements, every time you hear about movements of military equipment, the militarization of the police, the buying of the ammunition, all of this is . . . they (DHS) are preparing for a massive uprising.”

Summit Could Mean Airport-Style Security On Metra Electric, South Shore Trains


Some stations on the Metra Electric Line and South Shore Line could be shut down during the upcoming NATO summit, and passengers at other stations could face airport-style security screenings, due to the Secret Service security plan that could be released as soon as Friday afternoon.
CBS 2 Chief Correspondent Jay Levine has exclusive details on those security measures, which the Secret Service is expected to officially unveil on Friday, or at the very latest, on Monday. Federal officials have promised the announcement will include a “comprehensive list of street closures and parking restrictions surrounding the NATO summit.”
Were I a Chicagoan with the means, I would evacuate Chicago right before the NATO event, and not come back until it was over.
When APEC was here in Hawaii (remember: the "aloha state"?!?)on the Sunday before it was over, armed tanks lined the streets here in the suburb of Honolulu where we live, and I was unable to get to church to participate in our worship service, or sing in our church's choir; attempting to have made the left hand turn on to the major road artery leading to my church would have gotten both Mike and me shot dead.
And that was here on Oahu; heaven only knows what Mayor "Rahmbo" really has planned for Chicago.

 

No-Fly Zone To Be Enforced By Shoot-To-Kill Order During NATO Summit


Plans to keep residents and dignitaries safe during the NATO Summit include a no-fly zone, with a shoot-to-kill warning for those who break the ban.
This is no joke. It will be enforced for May 19 to May 21.
(CBS)    A new report reveals plans to keep residents and dignitaries safe during the NATO Summit include a no-fly zone, with a shoot-to-kill mandate for those who break the ban.

The flight advisory was issued by the Federal Aviation Administration. The advisory bans non-commercial aircraft from flying within 10 nautical miles of downtown Chicago and below 18,000 feet.
A nautical mile is about one minute of arc of latitude along any meridian. It amounts to 1,852 meters, or about 1.15078 standard miles.
I am very concerned about this summit, and sincerely hope everyone attending this conference comes and goes safely, although I loathe the unrecognizable, bloodthirsty creature into which NATO has morphed in the 21st century.
I am hoping like heck that there will not be a "false flag" incident taking place here during the NATO summit; unfortunately, however, we have the "perfect storm" of events and allegiances to make such an event not impossible, and they are as follows:
1. Rahm Emanuel, the mayor of Chicago, was a dual US-Israeli citizen until the age of 18. But when it comes to choosing American interests over those of the Israeli state, I wouldn't bet against him choosing the interests of Israel over those of the US. Remember: this conference will be held right in between the dissolution of the Knesset (by the 17th of this month) and right before the next round of talks with Iran is supposed to be held (starting the 23rd of this month).
Emanuel’s father, an Israeli physician, was a member of the terrorist group Irgun in the 1940s. Irgun was responsible for blowing up the King David Hotel and ethnically cleansing much of Palestine through selective massacres of Arab civilians. In an interview in the Jerusalem Post, Dr. Benjamin Emanuel said he was convinced that his son’s appointment as White House chief of staff would be good for Israel. "Obviously he will influence the president to be pro-Israel," he was quoted as saying. "Why wouldn’t he be? What is he, an Arab? He’s not going to clean the floors of the White House." Commenting on his father’s statement, Rahm Emanuel noted that Obama does not need his influence to “orientate his policy toward Israel.” Other Israelis and prominent American supporters of Israel also see Emanuel as their man in the White House. The respected Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz hailed his appointment, describing him unambiguously as an Israeli.
2. The Israeli Knesset is about to be dissolved ahead of the next round of elections. This gives Netanyahu a "window" for a potential "counterattack" against a framed Iranian government which WILL BE BLAMED for anything nasty which might happen at the time of this NATO summit. This also gives Knesset members plausible deniability for anything that happens because the Knesset will not be in session. The planned time for this dissolution of the Knesset will be within two weeks; by the 17th of this month.
3. So, Netanyahu has a "window" for an attack without the advise and consent of the Knesset, between the 17th and the 23rd. But how much more sweet it would be to have the "justification" for avenging an "alleged Iranian attack" against NATO delegates, an organization which Israel has been trying to get into for years!

Potential False Flag Dirty Bomb Attack During NATO Summit?


As the NATO Summit approaches, the possibility of a false flag attack or some sort of agent provocateur madness seems to increase on a daily basis.

“There is a large potential for something big to go on here.”

 

The US Army Is Stocking Up On A Ton Of Anti-Radiation Pills To Protect Troops


While checking out the Federal Business Opportunities network, we came across a listing by the Defense Logistics Agency — the Troop Support branch — seeking a supply of potassium iodide tablets.

Documents reveal al Qaeda's plans for seizing cruise ships, carnage in Europe


His interrogators were surprised to find that hidden in his underpants were a digital storage device and memory cards.
Buried inside them was a pornographic video called "Kick Ass" -- and a file marked "Sexy Tanja."
If this guy was smart enough to use steganography, then he surely was smart enough to use modern-day two-key encryption. He could have emailed himself the key, which would have made it impossible to brute-force the file open. But we're supposed to believe that he had hidden data inside a porn file? Why a porn file? Why not something more innocuous like a simple family vacation file? Or even an episode of the Simpsons? This stinks to high heaven.

 

FBI Hatches Another Terror Scare, Arrests 5 Anarchists in Plot to Blow Up Cleveland Bridge


Authorities in Cleveland Ohio have arrested 5 self described anarchists for allegedly plotting and trying to blow up a local area bridge.
While all the details of the case have yet to be released, what has paints an eerily familiar picture and seems to follow the same narrative used time and time again by the FBI in their so called, “terror arrests.”
According to the criminal complaint filed Tuesday morning, the defendants first planned to target financial institution signs atop high rise buildings, using smoke grenades as a distraction, which later turned into using C-4 to blow up Cleveland area bridges.

US Arrests 5 in Plot to Bomb Ohio Bridge

False Flag Alert: U.S. Authorties Claim al Qaeda Planning to Use Body Bombs in New Round of Terror Attacks


U.S. Authorities have claimed that members of the now almost completely destroyed al Qaeda terror network are planning to use so called “body bombs” to blow up U.S. bound airplanes in conjunction with the anniversary of the killing of Osama Bin Laden.
Officials have claimed that body bombs, surgically implanted explosives, are apparently something that al Qaeda affiliates in Yemen could be planning to us to get around TSA airport security.
That’s right, the corporate media is reporting that the TSA, despite being absolute failures at almost everything they touch, are doing such a good job that terrorists now have to implant bombs in their stomachs to get past them.

Chicago Summit: NATO To Announce Activation Of European Missile Shield


On April 30 the North Atlantic Treaty Organization' s Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen informed the Associated Press that the military bloc he leads will announce initial operational capability for the joint U.S.-NATO interceptor missile system in Europe at the NATO summit in Chicago on May 20-21.
Identifying the progression from European theater interceptor missile systems like NATO's Active Layered Theatre Ballistic Missile Defence (ALTBMD) and the Medium Extended Air Defense System (MEADS) and the U.S. Patriot Advanced Capability-3 battery deployed to Poland two years ago to current continent-wide territorial coverage with the integration of those systems with Washington's European Phased Adaptive Approach, the alliance chief said, "As far as NATO is concerned, we have tested the systems and they work."
Memo to NATO's Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen: it is painfully obvious, sir, that you did NOT get the memo that Russia has threatened a pre-emptive strike if NATO builds a Missile Defense Shield, such as the one you are about to announce at the NATO summit in Chicago, which will be characterized as having "initial operational capability."
As an American who does care strongly about her country, and the future of the world itself, the spectre of a thermonuclear war with Russia is NOT, I assure you, helping me sleep at night.

 

Department of Homeland Security Set to Release Bacteria Into Boston Subways


The Department of Homeland Security has announced their intentions to release bacteria into Boston area subways to “test” their biological sensors, this despite the US governments long history of testing dangerous bio weapons on unsuspecting Americans throughout the country.
The announcement came in a short news report that literally acted as if this is simply an everyday normal occurrence.
“The DHS has installed sensors in the MBTA system to detect biological agents and they’ve been testing to see how the air moves. Now they want to release particles in the tunnels to see how well the sensors work,” reported CBS Boston.

Obama Signs Executive Order Declaring International Law for the United States


On May 1, 2012, our Glorious Leader, Premier Barack Obama AKA Barry Soetoro AKA Barry the Rat, signed yet another Executive Order – Promoting International Regulatory Cooperation. This dictate is designed to standardize regulations between the United States and it’s so called trading partners.
What is a regulation? A law. So what is actually being attempted here is a standardization of international law. It is an absolute violation of the Constitution for the United States to legislate our law outside of our borders.

 

MILITARIZATION OF THE BALKANS: Directed against Russia? U.S. Leads Largest Air Combat Exercises In Bulgaria's History


The first joint air exercise, Viper Javelin 2005, occurred the year after Bulgaria joined NATO and the year before the U.S.-Bulgarian Defense Cooperation Agreement was signed, replicating a similar agreement with neighboring Romania the year before.
The pact allowed the Pentagon to station as many as 2,500 troops at four military facilities in Bulgaria: The Graf Ignatievo and Besmer air bases, the Novo Selo Training Range and the Aitos Logistics Center.
In 2009 the U.S. armed forces publication Stars and Stripes disclosed that the Pentagon was spending $110 million to "build new military bases" in Bulgaria and Romania.
Forgive me, but with massive US unemployment; many homeless and hungry, and our infrastructure in ruins, that one hundred and ten million dollars should have been spent taking care of things here at home.

 

Kosovo Terror Training Camps Re-Open for Syrian Rebels


A delegation of Syrian rebels has made a deal with Pristina authorities to exchange experience of partisan warfare. Syrian opposition is sending militants to Kosovo for adopting tactics and being trained to oust President Bashar Assad’s regime.
On April 26, a delegation of Syrian opposition members made a stop in Pristina on their way from the US to hold talks on how to make use of the experience of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) in Syria, reports Associated Press.
Unflipping believable.

War Under Table: Ex-Blackwater mercs in Syria 'backed by US'


War Under Table: Ex-Blackwater mercs in Syria 'backed by US'


War Under The Table: US Backed Mercenaries Training Syria Terrorists

Sources reportedly confirm the Wikileaks revelation that US backed mercenaries from the company formerly known as Blackwater are training terrorist rebels in Syria.

The opposition fighters in Syria might be getting help from a different source – in the form of training from the US private security firm, formerly known as the notorious Blackwater group which has since changed its named to XE Services and spawned various shell companies under various names.
The allegations that the mercenaries from the company, which is under contract from the Pentagon to carry out various “security” operations around the globe, are being pulled out of Iraq and sent to Syria.
In this video RT discusses this with Christoph R. Horstel  who’s a government and business consultant.


Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs, John Baird, appears on the Qatari state media and affirms Canada's partisan support for the Syria rebels. Baird asserts that Canada's Middle East policy is motivated by Human Rights concerns yet he appears scared to criticize the human rights abuses of Israel in the occupied Palestinian territories. He remains noticeably silent on the lack of democracy in Saudi Arabia and Qatar which perhaps stems from the fact that his own conservative party are currently under fire with accusations that they rigged the 2011 Canadian elections in which they attained a majority in the Canadian parliament.

Many Canadian-Syrians are ill at ease with their government's financial and political support for groups that they are allegedly committing acts of terrorism in Syria at the behest of the US, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

This testimony brings into question the claim by the Canadian government that it is engaged in a so-called war on terror. If the Canadian government is indeed aiding and abetting terror groups, as alleged by these Syrian patriots, then it would vindicate the claim by many that terrorism is but a tool of Western governments that are in fact engaged in a war of terror against the inhabitants of the Middle East.

While it is clear that the Zionist regime has a vested interest in destabilizing Syria it is unclear how sending Canadian tax dollars to help sectarian groups in the Middle East serves Canadian national interests, especially at a time when the Canadian government is imposing harsh austerity measures on the people of Canada.

"SYRIAN OPPOSITION": Mossad, Blackwater, CIA Led Operations in Homs. Weapons from Israel


This report and testimony from early March points to the presence of foreign forces on Syrian soil, operating within the ranks of "opposition" forces.
For his part, Syrian expert in strategic affairs Salim Harba pointed out that Baba Amro neighborhood and the areas surrounding it were emptied from the armed groups’ organizational as well as command structures with minimum army and civilian casualties, as the area was mainly concentrated by gunmen.
Speaking to Al-Manar website, Harba said that “the captured gunmen held Arab nationalities, including Gulf, Iraqi, and Lebanese… among them were also Qatari intelligence agents and non-Arab fighters from Afghanistan, Turkey, and some European countries like France.
So, this is actually what comprises the "Syrian Opposition"?!?

UN Mute Over NATO's Syrian Death Squads


More recently, Human Rights Watch (HRW) has conceded that indeed the Syrian opposition "Free Syrian Army" is conducting widespread, systematic abuses including the kidnapping, torture, and murder of both security forces and civilians.

The HRW report titled, "Syria: Armed Opposition Groups Committing Abuses," is broken into three parts; kidnapping, torture, and executions. And while the report attempts to focus mainly on atrocities carried out against security forces and government supporters, the mention of civilian victims is made as well. The report states:
Abuses include kidnapping, detention, and torture of security force members, government supporters, and people identified as members of pro-government militias, called shabeeha. Human Rights Watch has also received reports of executions by armed opposition groups of security force members and civilians.
Now, almost daily, the Syrian opposition is carrying out vicious attacks not only on security forces, but a terrorist bombing campaign across Syria that has already killed and maimed scores of civilians.
This is not about establishing "democracy" in Syria; it is about regime change, pure and simple, and the ultimate destabilization of all of Syria, ahead of a military attack on Iran.

Syria rebels 'launch sea raid' as Lebanon seizes weapons

International Military Operation Looms For Syria


The new ceasefire set for May 5 could prove a turning point in the Syrian conflict. If the truce fails, an international peacekeeping intervention might become a reality.

US and allies ramp up plans for military intervention in Syria


Accusations that the Syrian government is either wholly or mainly responsible for breaches of the United Nations’ ceasefire are meant to provide a pretext for military intervention by the imperialist powers and their proxies.
The US has already signalled its intention to move to a military solution. Defence Undersecretary Kathleen Hicks and National Security Council director of strategies Derek Chollet have told the Senate that the UN diplomatic initiative had now reached “the point of collapse”.
The alleged UN "peace plan" has been engineered to fail.
It appears that it is only a question, now, of when, rather than if, the US government will take some form of military action against the Syrian government, even if such action is shrouded in massive support of mercenaries and supplies to them, so that the US government works under the cover of "plausible deniability" in terms of engaging in direct military action against another nation-state.
Unfortunately, this attack against Syria will only be a prelude to a military confrontation with Iran.

Syrian rebels launch Damascus attacks as violence escalates


A bomb hidden in an army truck also exploded in the capital, wounding several people.
The persistent bloodshed has tarnished efforts by a U.N. team of observers to bolster a truce that the international community sees as the last-chance to prevent the country from falling into civil war.
U.N. monitors visited the restive Damascus suburb of Douma on Tuesday, their second visit in two days. Activists reported shelling and gunfire in the area on Tuesday. Amateur videos posted online also showed smoke rising into the sky after an explosion as well as men and young boys dashing for cover as gunfire is heard nearby.

Elie Wiesel: Why is Assad still in power?


In a speech introducing U.S. President Barack Obama today, Nobel Peace Laureate and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel called on the world to learn the lessons of the Holocaust and prevent Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from committing atrocities against civilians.
This is becoming a repeating pattern.
1. CIA and Mossad smuggle weapons into a nation along with agents provocateurs trained at the US "terrorist" training facility in Kuwait.
2. The inserted agents recruit and arm "freedom fighters" to stage a coup against the targeted government.
3. When the targeted government fights back against the armed insurgents, the US screams about the "humanitarian crisis" and invades.
4. The targeted government is out, the puppet rulers are in, the people suffer and the money-junkies move onto the next target.

Pentagon strategists say 3 weeks enough to defeat Iran


As the U.S. beefs up its military presence in the Persian Gulf region, Pentagon strategists estimate that they would need less than a month to defeat Iranian forces should a military conflict take place, The Washington Post reported.
The same Pentagon that is still fighting inside Iraq, will still be fighting inside Afghanistan in 2024, now promises they will successfully invade and conquer Iran in just three weeks.
And if you believe that one, I have some of Saddam's nuclear weapons to sell you!

Ready to hit Iran if ordered: Israel military chief


Israeli forces are carrying out more special operations beyond the country’s borders and will be ready to attack Iran’s nuclear sites if ordered, the chief-of-staff said in an interview on Sunday.
In an extract from an interview with the top-selling Yediot Aharanot daily, Lieutenant General Benny Gantz said that 2012 would be a critical year in efforts to halt what Israel and much of the international community believe is an Iranian nuclear arms programme.
“We think that a nuclear Iran is a very bad thing, which the world needs to stop and which Israel needs to stop — and we are planning accordingly,” Gantz said.
“In principle, we are ready to act.

Pentagon has ‘successful plan’ with hundreds of Tomahawks deployed near Iran


America’s plan B for Iran “will be successful,” promises US defense secretary, Leon Panetta. Reports suggest this is no sable rattling, as the US strike groups deployed to the Persian Gulf may be carrying some 430 Tomahawk missiles.
­Washington has not yet dropped its “all options” stance towards Iran, who, they fear, may be building nuclear weapons. The confirmation was obtained by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer from Panetta on Thursday.
“We are prepared with all options on the table if we have to respond,” Panetta said, adding that “there are plans” to deal with Iran if the country does not give up its nuclear ambitions.

Yuval Diskin, Israel Former Intel Chief, Slams Netanyahu's Iran Stance


The former head of Israel's Shin Bet security agency has accused the country's political leaders of exaggerating the effectiveness of a possible military strike against Iran, in a striking indication of Israel's turmoil over how to deal with the Iranian nuclear program.
Yuval Diskin said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak – who have been saber-rattling for months – have their judgment clouded by "messianic feelings" and should not be trusted to lead policy on Iran. Diskin, who headed Shin Bet until last year, said a strike might actually accelerate the Iranian program.
Diskin's comments deepened the sense that a rift is growing between the hawkish Netanyahu government and the security establishment over the question of a strike.
I sincerely hope that Diskin's comments will stir some very desperately needed dialogue in the bowels of power in Tel Aviv.

Israel's Deputy Prime Minister Admits Ahmadinejad Never Said Israel Should Be 'Wiped Off the Face of the Map'


Israel's Deputy Prime Minister Dan Meridor admitted that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad never said Iran wanted to "wipe Israel off the face of the map" in an interview with Al Jazeera last week.
Israel's Deputy Prime Minister Dan Meridor speaking with Teymoor Nabili on Talk to Al Jazeera Meridor made the surprising departure from the frequent talking point in an interview with Teymoor Nabili on Talk to Al Jazeera. Video of the interview can be seen below.
Al Jazeera's Nabili writes about the interview: "It's when I challenged him on the biggest talking point of all, Iran's supposed determination to 'wipe Israel off the face of the map,' that Meridor seemed to stumble outside the lines of the agreed narrative."

Exposing Israel’s Most Dangerous Secret


The IIBR is staffed by some 300 scientists and technicians employed in one or more of its many departments, each of which specialises in a specific area of chemical or biological research generally aimed at the production of chemical or biological weaponry. One of these departments, for example, is reported to have developed the poison that was used by the notorious Mossad assassination unit, Kidon, in its botched attempt to eliminate Hamas politburo chief Khaled Meshaal in 1997. Nevertheless, if there remains some question over the accuracy of this information, which was reported in Haaretz, no one disputes that the first time the institute’s products were used in an assassination operation was in late 1977 when then prime minister Menachem Begin ordered Mossad to eliminate Wadie Haddad.

If anyone was still unsure about the fact that Iran has not so much as made the call to begin developing a nuclear weapon – which has already been confirmed by U.S. intelligence agencies and U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta himself (twice) – Israeli Defense Force Chief of Staff Lieutenant General Benny Gantz drove the point home once again.
In an interview with Israeli news outlet Haaretz, Gantz made some quite surprising statements, including pointing out exactly what I have been saying for months, “the Iranian leadership is composed of very rational people.” ...

Zio-Nazi group attacks academics critical of Israel


A small supremacist Jewish group is launching a smear campaign against a number of professors and academics on North American campuses for daring to criticize racist Israeli policies against native Palestinians.
The group, called Campus Watch and headed by David Horowitz, an extremist Zionist stalwart, has published advertisements inciting to hatred against a number of prominent professors on American campuses.
The academics are accused of vilifying Israel and of indulging in hate speech that would endanger the very existence of the apartheid Israeli state.

Israel bans textbook promoting Arab rights

Israeli police to activist reciting names of destroyed Palestinian villages: If you keep reading you will be arrested

(Editor's Note: For video and more pictures of this event see this post)
One of the activists that were called over brought a history book, out of which he started reading out loud the names of villages demolished by the Nakba, on which the city of Tel Aviv was built. Policemen warned him that if he keeps on reading he will be arrested. After a moment or two they fulfilled this threat. As he was dragged to the police van he kept on reading. "Shayka Muwannis, Abu Kabir, Salama...." The reading continued, though, from the cards held by those inside the blockade, one by one the names were read, repeated by everybody "Ijlil Shamalyyia, Sawalima, Yazur..." When a couple of dozens were reading out the names the cops stood helpless.

Musicians punished for public criticism of Israel


To somehow imagine that “for the LPO, music and politics do not mix”, as the statement asserts, is absurd. (My colleague Tom Service writes more on this on his blog.) Politics runs through music: it is there whenever one plays a concert or receives a donation. Indeed, the LPO itself recently made a film in solidarity with Dutch musicians, in the wake of government arts cuts in the Netherlands: hardly an apolitical act. The baffling thing is that the LPO board have chosen to take such measures against senior musicians, who have devoted their careers to this wonderful orchestra; it is a distraction from their superb musicianship. The LPO plays its season opener at London’s Southbank Centre tonight: if it is disrupted by protests, the orchestra will have only itself to blame.
The London Philharmonic (boycott their records) has in essence stated that political activism with music is acceptable ... for every issue except Israel.

Operation Cast Lead: It's Zionese for Burning People


"Zionese" is the unofficial spoken language of the State of Israel. Most Israelis learn and use the Zionese language, but one need not be Jewish to speak it; today it is also the language that’s spoken in many Judeo-Christian and Messianic churches in America, often without church leaders realizing it.
The first cab driver I rode with in Israel pointedly called the Philistines "animals" in the course of polite conversation...that’s Zionese. He was cautioning me to keep away from Palestinians while in Israel. "They will kill you in there," he told me, when he learned I was going into Gaza. More Zionese.
When I was a small child, attending that small school in Loudon, New Hampshire, I vividly recall one of the textbooks we were given. It was called "Our American Heritage" and it featured a painting of a steamboat on the cover. Inside was the usual propaganda for young impressionable minds about how great the United States was and how evil the communists were, how all communists everywhere dreamed of nothing but the destruction of the United States because ... well, no real reason was given, just because. The message was remarkably similar to the one portrayed above. "They" hate us. "They" wish us nothing but ill. "They" will kill us given the chance.
Then, through my work at NASA I actually met real communists from the USSR, then again at SIGGRAPH when the Moscow university students started to attend. And finally I had a chance meeting with a Soviet flight crew when we were snowed in at the Frankfurt airport.
In hindsight, I should not have been surprised to discover they were just normal people like myself. They recalled the textbooks they had been given as children, that taught them about how great the Soviet Union was and how evil the capitalists were, how all capitalists everywhere dreamed of nothing but the destruction of the USSR because ... well, no real reason was given, just because.
The lesson is simple; that all people can get along with each other, were it not for the charlatans and mountebanks who rule us all with lies about a remote enemy that hates us and from whom we need the protection offered by the rulers in exchange for obedience, wealth, and the lives of our children to be sacrificed in wars.

Mass Mobilization: Israel brings out reserve border battalions

A sense of inevitable war with Iran seized Israel as its two principal leaders — Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak — concluded 1) Iran is about to produce a nuclear bomb; 2) planned to use it to wipe out Israel; 3) the time for Israel to bomb Iran’s nuclear production sites is now (i.e., at the height of the U.S. presidential campaign when neither candidate would risk losing by criticizing Israel).
I disagree. Netanyahu is facing major defections within the Israeli political establishment. Support for a war with Iran is dwindling rapidly. The upcoming P5 talks will be a disaster for Netanyahu if the US goes ahead with their stated intention of allowing Iran to maintain their rights under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in exchange for random unannounced inspections, something Iran has already indicated they will accept. This agreement will mean that the rest of the P5 nations, as war-weary as the people of the United States, will declare the Iranian crisis (as if there ever was one) over, with no more sanctions required and certainly no justification for an attack. An Israeli bombing mission after such an agreement clearly shows Israel to be an unjustified aggressor, especially in light of the history of the Israeli attack against the power station at Osirak under the excuse that Israel "knew" it contained a clandestine weapons factory (like the Israelis have at Dimona). Post-invasion examination of the ruins at Osirak found no evidence of the weapons factory Israel cited as justification for the bombing. Israel cannot survive a second baseless attack politically once P5 have declared the crisis over. So if Netanyahu is to have his war with Iran, he has to move before the P5 talks get underway May 23rd. Netanyahu may even order the attack on May 14th, coinciding with the anniversary of the founding of Israel, to stifle internal criticism.

Israeli DM: Early Elections Won’t Stall Iran War


With Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu moving to dissolve Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, in anticipation of early elections, Defense Minister Ehud Barak is looking to reassure hawkish would-be voters that the move won’t get in the way of a potential attack on Iran.
“Elections will not affect deliberations of the professional echelon in everything regarding the Iranian issue,” Barak insisted in his statement, saying that a military attack remains “on the table” and could happen at any time.
It is the very dissolution of the Knesset, slated to take place very quickly which gives Netanyahu a narrow "window" for such an attack to take place.
IF the Knesset dissolves within the next two weeks, that means that by the 17th of this month, there will be ability of the Knesset to advise or consent to such an action on the part of the Israeli government.
The Israeli military has already deployed 6 battalions to their borders with Syria and the Egyptian Sinai: this is no coincidence in terms of the timing of this deployment.

IDF chief: Other countries are prepared for possible Iran strike


Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz said on Thursday that other countries have readied their armed forces for a potential strike against Iran's nuclear sites to keep Tehran from acquiring atomic weapons.
Gantz did not specify which nations might be willing to support or take direct action against Iran.
Memo to Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz; if you cannot name your potential "partners in crime" for an attack against Iran, you have none, sir.
And it is painfully apparent that you did NOT get the memo that Iran may agree to snap UN inspections.
IF these reports are true, Lt. General Gantz, the rationale for any kind of military action against Iran has just gone completely away.

 

Iran May Agree to Snap UN Nuclear Inspections


Iran’s official news agency has reported that a deal may be in the works for Iran to agree to an additional protocol of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) which would allow UN inspectors to make immediate, impromptu visits to Iran’s nuclear sites.
The official quoted, Iran’s ambassador to Moscow, Reza Sajjadi, also said a deal might include Iran halting expansion of its nuclear program if the West halts further sanctions.
If true, these sounds like deals few observers expected would materialize before the talks began.
Wait; is that the sound of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's screams of outrage and upset over peace potentially breaking out on this issue?!?
Why, I think it is!!

Israeli students to get $2,000 to spread state propaganda on Facebook


The National Union of Israeli Students (NUIS) has become a full-time partner in the Israeli government’s efforts to spread its propaganda online and on college campuses around the world.
NUIS has launched a program to pay Israeli university students $2,000 to spread pro-Israel propaganda online for 5 hours per week from the “comfort of home.”
The union is also partnering with Israel’s Jewish Agency to send Israeli students as missionaries to spread propaganda in other countries, for which they will also receive a stipend.
So, from now on, simply assume that anyone saying anything positive about Israel is being paid to do so.

“Le Caire donne le coup de grâce aux relations bilatérales dégradées”, se félicite le quotidien panarabe. Les autorités égyptiennes ont annoncé, le 22 avril, avoir annulé l’accord avec la compagnie égyptienne qui exporte du gaz vers Israël. Ce contrat, négocié sous le régime d’Hosni Moubarak, était très critiqué en Egypte, le prix du gaz était notamment jugé trop bas. Le gazoduc alimentant Israël avait été régulièrement visé par des attentats depuis le soulèvement qui a renversé Moubarak. Quarante-trois pour cent du gaz consommé en Israël provient d’Egypte.

Six army battalions called up under emergency orders to meet growing threat on Egypt, Syria borders


The IDF has issued emergency call up orders to six reserve battalions in light of new dangers on the Egyptian and Syrian borders. And the Knesset has given the IDF permission to summon a further 16 reserve battalions if necessary, Israeli media reported on Wednesday.
An IDF spokesperson said intelligence assessments called for the deployment of more soldiers. An army statement highlighted last August’s infiltration from the Sinai north of Eilat in which eight Israelis were killed, and said the subsequent division of that area into two distinct military zones necessitated additional manpower.
You don't mobilize this number of troops without strong intent to use them.
Netanyahu is in a blind, messianic panic that the West's meetings with Iran starting the 23rd of this month will produce something concrete, intelligent, and conclusive in terms of Iran's nuclear energy program.
And he is not about to let that happen.

US may use 'military means' to defend Afghanistan until 2024


The US and Afghanistan agree on a deal that could see Washington providing military and economic help to Kabul for another decade after the 2014 pullout deadline.

Obama in Afghanistan to Sign Deal to Continue War Through 2024


Months of “not quite public” Obama Administration efforts to negotiate a still-secret pact to ensure that US troops will continue to occupy Afghanistan through at least 2024 came to an end today, with a “not quite public” visit to Afghanistan by President Obama to sign the pact.
The first reports that President Obama had landed in Afghanistan for this A totally unannounced visit were quickly followed by denials from both the White House and the US Embassy in Afghanistan, which condemned the reports as untrue. Later they conceded they were true, and made no attempt to explain why they lied in the first place.
The terms of the deal, which will govern US military operations in the country from the start of 2015 through the end of 2024, have not been made public, and as with President Bush and the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) in Iraq, there was no effort to consult on the long-term pact with Congress.

NATO ENCIRCLEMENT OF RUSSIA. The Strategic Role of the "Visegrad Four": Poland, Hungary Czech Republic, Slovakia


According to NATO’s plans, which are to be discussed at the summit in Chicago in May, the countries of the former USSR, which surround Russia, must play the role of an “anaconda ring” pressing Russia and pushing it farther from its navigation routes: the Baltic States would block the access to the Baltic Sea, the scale of Russia’s presence on the Black Sea depends on Ukraine and Georgia; on land the Western direction would be blocked by Moldova and Ukraine and by Muscovites’ eternal opponent, which is Poland.

Russia warns on missile defence deal with Nato and US

Russia prepares for a US-Israeli military strike against Iran


Russia has undertaken intensive preparations during the past few months for a possible military strike by Israel and the United States on Iran. According to recent reports, the Russian General Staff expects a war against Iran this summer, with enormous repercussions for not only the Middle East but also the Caucasus.
And what if Russia comes to Iran's aid with full-on, military intervention in Iran's behalf?!?
I really have to wonder if those in the bowels of power in DC and Tel Aviv have actually thought this scenario through to its ultimate conclusion, which may well be a global thermonuclear war over an alleged Iranian weapons program which cannot, to date, be proven to exist!!

China sends more ships to disputed shoal: Philippines


The Philippine military on Thursday accused China of sending more ships to a disputed shoal in the South China Sea, describing the move as an insult that would further inflame tensions.
Four Chinese surveillance ships and 10 fishing boats have anchored off the disputed Scarborough Shoal, with the fishermen taking giant clams and corals that are protected under Philippine law, a regional military spokesman said.
It is the largest number of Chinese vessels seen at the shoal since the two countries began a sovereignty standoff there almost a month ago, according to Major Loel Egos, whose northern command covers the area.
“They are just worsening the insult, bringing in all these fishing boats and all we can do is resort to diplomacy,” Egos told AFP.
Major Egos says "all we can do is resort to diplomacy,”, as though this were a BAD thing!
I am certainly hoping that cooler heads in Beijing and Manilla will prevail, and that these issues can be worked out in a negotiated, diplomatic settlement.

AP: US Soldiers Promised Massacre, Including Children, Days Before Bales' Alleged Rampage


In a striking omission to mainstream coverage of the Afghan massacre which took the lives of 17 Afghans including many children, one as young as two, the AP has reported that US soldiers came to their villages after a roadside bombing two days before and promised retaliation. The Pentagon has denied that any bombing took place, putting it in direct contradiction to the attorney for Sgt. Robert Bales, who alone is being accused of the rampage.
This was "collective punishment" on the part of the American military, pure and simple, which of course means it will be denied to the hilt by US military and civilian leadership.

End of an era: U.S. cuts back presence on Japanese outpost Okinawa as 9,000 Marines prepare to move out


The move is part of a broader arrangement designed to ease tensions in the countries' defense alliance, which stem in part from opposition to the American presence on the island.
It also reflects a desire by the Obama administration to spread U.S. forces more widely in the Asia-Pacific region, as America rebalances its defence priorities after a decade of war in the Middle East.

Torture Cheerleaders Back In the News Trying to Defend the Indefensible


The so-called “debate” about whether torture helped to keep us safe is reemerging, as the former chief of CIA clandestine operations Jose Rodriguez is aboutev to publish a book claiming that the use of “enhanced interrogation” practices including water-boarding saved lives.
“We made some al-Qaeda terrorists with American blood on their hands uncomfortable for a few days,” Rodriguez said in an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes” that will air on Sunday, April 29. “I am very secure in what we did and am very confident that what we did saved American lives.”
Torture is also back in the news because Senate Intelligence Committee Democrats are producing a report stating that torture isn’t effective in producing information.
We will quote the top American military and intelligence interrogation experts to debunk the following 10 common myths about torture:
1. Torture is a partisan issue
2. Waterboarding isn’t torture
3. Torture is necessary to break hardened terrorists
4. Torture is necessary in a “ticking time bomb” situation
5. The “enhanced” interrogation techniques were aimed at producing actionable intelligence
6. Torture helped to get Bin Laden
7. Torture provided valuable details regarding 9/11
8. Only bad guys were tortured
9. America doesn’t torture any more

Mars Opportunity rover reaches Endeavour crater, finds signs of ancient Martian water


Over seven years into its (originally) 90-day mission, the Mars rover Opportunity arrived at the rim of Endeavour Crater. While the crater itself was formed from an ancient meteorite impact, the rocks at its rim show signs of a watery past. Chemical analysis found deposits typical of hydrothermal vents on Earth, along with features usually associated with evaporation. Together, these pieces of evidence suggest warm, shallow water formerly existed in the region of Endeavour.

E. Coli That Cause Urinary Tract Infections are Now Resistant to Antibiotics


In examining more than 12 million urine analyses from that period, they found that cases caused by E. coli resistant to ciprofloxacin grew five-fold, from 3% to 17.1% of cases. And E. coli resistant to the drug trimethoprim-sulfame-thoxazole jumped from 17.9% to 24.2%. These are two of the most commonly prescribed antibiotics used to treat UTIs. When they are not effective, doctors must turn to more toxic drugs, and the more those drugs are used, the less effective they in turn become. When those drugs stop working, doctors will be left with a drastically reduced toolkit with which to fight infection.
UTIs thrive in an acidic environment. This worked for me. No antibiotics required.

No jab, no education: New CA law requires middle schoolers to provide proof of Tdap vaccination in order to receive education


A new amendment to California's Health and Safety Code as it relates to vaccinations will take effect this fall for the 2012-2013 school year, and will require all incoming seventh graders, as well as eighth and twelfth graders for the first year, to get a Tdap booster vaccination for pertussis (whooping cough) before being admitted to school. The website of the Marin County School District, which includes the city of San Francisco, literally states "No shot, No School!" in an apparent attempt to strong-arm parents into complying with the new provision.

USDA quarantines 2 farms in mad cow investigation


Two farms have been quarantined by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as the agency continues to investigate last month's discovery of mad cow disease at a California dairy farm.
The farm where the cow was initially discovered has been under quarantine since the discovery, agriculture officials said. Wednesday's announcement of a second quarantine involves a farm closely associated with the dairy where the sick cow was discovered last month, the USDA said. The agency is still trying to determine if any at-risk cattle are present at either of the two farms.
Why do I get that nasty feeling in the pit of my stomach that the proverbial horse is "already out of the barn" on this one?!?

Pesticide Exposure Found to Lower Intelligence


Pesticides, ubiquitous among not only the food supply but farms and homes worldwide, have been found to be creating lasting changes in overall brain structure — changes that have been linked to lower intelligence levels and decreased cognitive function. Previously linked in scientific research to the massive obesity crisis, pesticides are now known to impact the mind in ways that are still not entirely understood.
Despite these findings, they are continually touted as safe by the profit-hungry chemical industry.

Novartis takes legal action in UK to make hospitals use $1,000 eye drug over $97 alternative
April 24, 2012, Washington Post/Associated Press
Drug maker Novartis is taking legal action in Britain to make state-run hospitals use an eye drug that costs about 700 pounds ($1,130) per shot instead of a cheaper one that costs 60 pounds ($97). In a statement, Novartis said it was calling for a judicial review “as a last resort” because it believed patient safety was being potentially compromised. According to the U.K.’s health watchdog, Novartis’ Lucentis is the only drug recommended to treat the eye problem macular degeneration in the country’s state-run National Health Service hospitals. However, several NHS hospitals have been prescribing the much cheaper Avastin, a cancer drug made by Genentech Inc., a subsidiary of Roche, for the same problem even though it has not been officially approved. A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine last year showed Avastin worked just as well as Lucentis for treating the eye disorder. Lucentis and Avastin act on the same biological protein in the body to spur blood vessel growth. In the U.S., eye doctors have often used tiny amounts of Avastin and billed the government for the cost, rather than buying Lucentis. Patient groups called for an independent analysis to determine which drug should be used.

The United States Has Plenty Of Oil: 10 Facts About America's Energy Resources That Will Blow Your Mind


The following are 10 facts about America's energy resources that will blow your mind....

#1 Back in 1995, the U.S. Geological Survey told the American people that the Bakken Shale formation in western North Dakota and eastern Montana only held 151 million barrels of oil. Today, government officials are admitting that it holds 4.3 billion barrels of recoverable oil, and some analysts believe that the actual number could be closer to 20 billion barrels of oil.

#2 It is estimated that there are up to 19 billion barrels of recoverable oil deposits in the tar sands of Utah.

#3 It is estimated that there are at least 86 billion barrels of recoverable oil deposits in the Outer Continental Shelf.

#4 It is believed that there are 800 billion barrels of recoverable oil deposits in the Green River formation in Wyoming.

#5 Overall, the United States is sitting on approximately 1.442 trillion barrels of recoverable oil deposits.

#6 According to the Institute of Energy Research, the United States has a 120 year supply of natural gas.

#7 According to the Institute of Energy Research, the United States has a 200 year supply of oil.

#8 According to the Institute of Energy Research, the United States has a 464 year supply of coal.

#9 According to Pastor Lindsey Williams, absolutely gigantic oil fields have been discovered up in Alaska that the American public is not being told about.

#10 Goldman Sachs is predicting that the United States will be the number one oil producing country in the world by the year 2017.

But you never hear any of these statistics from Barack Obama, do you?

And some of our oil fields that were thought to be "depleted" are actually filling back up with oil. Many scientists are extremely puzzled by this. The following quote is from a 1999 Wall Street Journal article....

Production at the oil field, deep in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana, was supposed to have declined years ago. And for a while, it behaved like any normal field: Following its 1973 discovery, Eugene Island 330's output peaked at about 15,000 barrels a day. By 1989, production had slowed to about 4,000 barrels a day.

Then suddenly—some say almost inexplicably—Eugene Island's fortunes reversed. The field, operated by PennzEnergy Co., is now producing 13,000 barrels a day, and probable reserves have rocketed to more than 400 million barrels from 60 million. Stranger still, scientists studying the field say the crude coming out of the pipe is of a geological age quite different from the oil that gushed 10 years ago.

The truth is that there is still much about the formation of oil that is a great mystery to our scientists. For much more on this, you can listen to a recent interview with Dr. Jerome Corsi on Coast to Coast right here.

Unfortunately, much of the information that you have read above is being repressed because it would be very damaging to the "green agenda" that the global elite are trying to impose on all of us.

As I wrote about yesterday, a "green economy" is absolutely central to the "sustainable development" agenda that the United Nations is promoting.

The elitists at the UN believe that carbon dioxide is evil and that it is going to cause catastrophic climate change.

But the truth is that we have always had "climate change" and even if you eliminated all forms of human activity it would only reduce carbon dioxide levels on our planet by a marginal amount.

Million-year-old ash hints at origins of cooking


The plant and animal ash was found thirty metres inside the Wonderwerk Cave — beyond the reach of a lightning strike.
Greatstock Photographic Library / Alamy
Ash found in a South African cave hints that humans were cooking with fire one million years ago.
The discovery is the earliest evidence yet found for use of this revolutionary technology, say the researchers behind the finding. But some experts caution that more proof is needed before we conclude that humans were cooking regularly at this date.
It is not possible to say for certain which species of hominin inhabited the cave one million years ago, but the team believes it was probably Homo erectus.
A million years. It boggles the mind to think of how much history happened that is lost to memory. Around 70,000 years ago the human population shrank to less than 15,000 individuals following the Toba supervolcano. We know that a great cataclysm happened 12,000 years ago when an asteroid struck somewhere in the north American area, wiping out the Clovis people and large fauna. Given how fast human civilization and culture has developed since the last great asteroid strike, it seems difficult to accept that similar progress did not happen in earlier times, with subsequent ice ages grinding all traces of those earlier civilizations to dust.





Fukushima:


New cybervirus found in Japan / Stuxnet designed to attack off-line servers via USB memory sticks


October 5, 2010: Stuxnet, a computer virus designed to attack servers isolated from the Internet, such as at power plants, has been confirmed on 63 personal computers in Japan since July, according to major security firm Symantec Corp.

Journalist Accuses Israel of Fukushima Sabotage

A leading Japanese journalist recently made two incredible claims about the Fukushima power plant that suffered a nuclear meltdown in March 2011, sending shockwaves around the world. First, the former editor of a national newspaper in Japan says the U.S. and Israel knew Fukushima had weapons-grade uranium and plutonium that were exposed to the atmosphere after a massive tsunami wave hit the reactor. Second, he  contends that Israeli intelligence sabotaged the reactor in retaliation for Japan’s support of an independent Palestinian state.
According to Yoishi Shimatsu, a former editor of Japan Times Weekly, these nuclear materials were shipped to the plant in 2007 on the orders of Dick Cheney and George W. Bush, with the connivance of Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. The shipment was in the form of warhead cores secretly removed from the U.S. nuclear warheads facility BWXT Plantex near Amarillo, Texas. While acting as the middleman, Israel transported warheads from the port of Houston, and in the process kept the best ones while giving the Japanese older warhead cores that had to be further enriched at Fukushima.
Shimatsu credits retired CIA agent and mercenary Roland Vincent Carnaby with learning the warheads were being transported from Houston. In a strange twist, Carnaby was mysteriously shot dead less than a year later by Houston police at a traffic stop. He was shot once in the back and once in the chest. He did not have a weapon in his hands. Intelligence sources said he had been tracking a Mossad unit that was smuggling U.S. plutonium out of Houston docks for an Israeli nuclear reactor.
In an even more explosive charge, the journalist says that 20 minutes before the Fukushima plant’s nuclear meltdown, Israel was so upset with Japanese support for a Palestinian declaration of statehood that it double-crossed Japan by unleashing the Stuxnet virus on the plant’s  computers. The virus hampered the shutdown, leading to fallout from a section of the plant housing uranium and plutonium retrieved from the warheads supplied in 2007.
While it is impossible to verify some of Shimatsu’s claims, there was a massive cover-up at the time of the Fukushima disaster in March.  Explosions at the site were immediately downplayed. While it was subsequently reported that three reactors suffered meltdowns, Japanese authorities tried to rate the disaster as a Level 4 on the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale, although outside experts declared it a 7, which is the highest level.
Something worth noting is how in 2009, two years after Shimatsu says the warheads were secretly moved to Japan, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) issued a veiled warning to Japan not to abandon its anti-nuclear weapons policy.
The IAEA had to know, however, that Japan has long retained the potential to build nuclear weapons. That was made clear as far back as 1996 when a leaked Ministry of Foreign Affairs document exposed how Japan had been promoting a dual strategy in respect to nuclear weapons since the mid-1960s. It would often publicly profess a non-nuclear policy while maintaining the ability to build a nuclear arsenal. The Liberal Democratic Party, which has dominated Japanese politics, has always said there is no constitutional impediment to nukes.
A factor that undoubtedly would have encouraged the Bush-Cheney White House to provide Japan with the means to secretly build nukes was the growing power of China. Cheney and Bush sought to arm Japan and India with nuclear weapons as a means of curbing China.

Stuxnet Loaded by Iran Double Agents


The Stuxnet virus that damaged Iran’s nuclear program was implanted by an Israeli proxy — an Iranian, who used a corrupt “memory stick.32,” former and serving U.S. intelligence officials said.
In the continuing battle to hold off the Iranian nuclear program, Iranian proxies have also been active in assassinating Iran’s nuclear scientists, these sources said.

Anxious Japan prepares for life without nuclear power


This weekend Japan will begin a bold experiment in energy use that no one had thought possible – until the Fukushima Daiichi power plant suffered a triple meltdown just over a year ago.
On Saturday, when the Hokkaido electric power company shuts down the No3 reactor at its Tomari plant for maintenance, the world's third-largest economy will be without a single working nuclear reactor for the first time for almost 50 years.
The closure of the last of Japan's 54 reactors marks a dramatic shift in energy policy, but while campaigners prepare to celebrate, the nationwide nuclear blackout comes with significant economic and environmental risks attached.

Vital Choice Pacific Seafood Passes Radiation Tests


The results are in! Vital Choice Wild Seafood & Organics, the leading source for fast home delivery of the world’s finest wild seafood from Alaska and the North Pacific, today announced that tests conducted at their request by an independent laboratory show that none of their seafood is contaminated by radiation released from the compromised nuclear plants at Fukushima, Japan.
I have no idea how thorough the testing is, but I find it significant that after the FDA stated that such testing is not necessary that private companies are proceeding anyway in response to consumer concerns. Already at our local market customers are avoiding Japanese/Gulf of Mexico seafood and California beef.

Chernobyl 2012


This month marks the 26th anniversary of the nuclear disaster at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power station in Ukraine when it was still part of the former USSR. Until Fukushima, this was the worst industrial accident in history. And the danger is far from over.
Explosions from Chernobyl’s reactor unit number 4 released a series of radionuclides high into our atmosphere, containing 400 times more radiation than the bombing of Hiroshima. During the last days of spring and beginning of summer these potentially lethal plumes fell over hundreds of millions of the unaware. Silent, odorless, invisible radiation drifted over 40% of Europe, and Scandinavia, as well as territories in Asia including Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Emirates, China, North Africa and North America.
Public access to information about the dangers of radiation and options for minimizing exposure is especially important now in the wake of the March 11, 2011 Fukushima Daiichi disaster. Chernobyl occurred in a land locked, relatively isolated region and only one reactor burned for just 10 days. Fukushima, however, happened along the coast of a densely populated country. In the Daiichi reactor complex six reactors were severely damaged, three in total meltdown. All six nuclear facilities have been leaking and spewing deadly radioactive particles into the air, food and water of our entire Northern Hemisphere, for over a year with no end in sight. Mainstream media outlets are silent and target populations in North America and elsewhere remain, for the most part, unaware.


We’ve Been Conned
You’d think people might start to realize something serious is actually going down. They can’t. It’s too horrific.
Listen. If the spent fuel rod pool just at Fukushima reactor 4 collapses, there will be so much plutonium-based radiation released it’s being called a potential Extinction Level Event (ELE). Just that. And if that doesn’t “bake your noodle”, do you know how many hundreds of these types of old dangerous fuel rod stocked reactors there are around the world?
Over 800! And all those built in the 60?s and 70?s are now due for “expiration”! Never mind the plethora of nuclear bomb manufacturing facilities in the US and around the world! We’re talking insane, people. And most of us had nothing to do with any of this. At least not consciously.

An Urgent Request on UN Intervention to Stabilize the Fukushima Unit 4 Spent Nuclear Fuel
Recently, former diplomats and experts both in Japan and abroad stressed the extremely risky condition of the Fukushima Daiichi Unit 4 spent nuclear fuel pool and this is being widely reported by world media. Robert Alvarez, Senior Scholar at the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), who is one of the best-known experts on spent nuclear fuel, stated that in Unit 4 there is spent nuclear fuel which contains Cesium-137 (Cs-137) that is equivalent to 10 times the amount that was released at the time of the Chernobyl nuclear accident. Thus, if an earthquake or other event were to cause this pool to drain, this could result in a catastrophic radiological fire involving nearly 10 times the amount of Cs-137 released by the Chernobyl accident.
Nearly all of the 10,893 spent fuel assemblies at the Fukushima Daiichi plant sit in pools vulnerable to future earthquakes, with roughly 85 times more long-lived radioactivity than released at Chernobyl.
Nuclear experts from the US and Japan such as Arnie Gundersen, Robert Alvarez, Hiroaki Koide, Masashi Goto, and Mitsuhei Murata, a former Japanese ambassador to Switzerland, and, Akio Matsumura, a former UN diplomat, have continually warned against the high risk of the Fukushima Unit 4 spent nuclear fuel pool.
US Senator Roy Wyden, after his visit to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant on 6 April, 2012, issued a press release on 16 April, pointing out the catastrophic risk of Fukushima Daiichi Unit 4, calling for urgent US government intervention. Senator Wyden also sent a letter to Ichiro Fujisaki, Japan’s Ambassador to the United States, requesting Japan to accept international assistance to tackle the crisis.
We Japanese civil organizations express our deepest concern that our government does not inform its citizens about the extent of risk of the Fukushima Daiichi Unit 4 spent nuclear fuel pool. Given the fact that collapse of this pool could potentially lead to catastrophic consequences with worldwide implications, what the Japanese government should be doing as a responsible member of the international community is to avoid any further disaster by mobilizing all the wisdom and the means available in order to stabilize this spent nuclear fuel. It is clearly evident that Fukushima Daiichi Unit 4 spent nuclear fuel pool is no longer a Japanese issue but an international issue with potentially serious consequences. Therefore, it is imperative for the Japanese government and the international community to work together on this crisis before it becomes too late. We are appealing to the United Nations to help Japan and the planet in order to prevent the irreversible consequences of a catastrophe that could affect generations to come. We herewith make our urgent request to you as follows:
1. The United Nations should organize a Nuclear Security Summit to take up the crucial problem of the Fukushima Daiichi Unit 4 spent nuclear fuel pool.
2. The United Nations should establish an independent assessment team on Fukushima Daiichi Unit 4 and coordinate international assistance in order to stabilize the unit’s spent nuclear fuel and prevent radiological consequences with potentially catastrophic consequences.

NYTimes: Radiation in “small doses could actually be disproportionately worse” says report — “Doses spread out over time might be more dangerous than doses given all at once” — Renewed importance after Fukushima


Source: NYTimes.com
Author: MATTHEW L. WALD
Date: May 2, 2012, 10:34 am
[In the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists May-June issue Dr. Jan Beyea, an environmental scientist who has opposed nuclear reactors
for decades and worked on epidemiological studies at Three Mile Island,] challenges a concept adopted by American safety regulators about small doses of radiation. The prevailing theory is that the relationship between dose and effect is linear – that is, that if a big dose is bad for you, half that dose is half that bad [...] 
Some radiation professionals disagree, arguing that there is no reason to protect against supposed effects that cannot be measured. But Dr. Beyea contends that small doses could actually be disproportionately worse.
Radiation experts have formed a consensus that if a given dose of radiation delivered over a short period poses a given hazard, that hazard will be smaller if the dose is spread out. To use an imprecise analogy, if swallowing an entire bottle of aspirin at one sitting could kill you, consuming it over a few days might merely make you sick. [...]
Dr. Beyea, however, proposes that doses spread out over time might be more dangerous than doses given all at once. He suggests two reasons: first, some effects may result from genetic damage that manifests itself only after several generations of cells have been exposed, and, second, a “bystander effect,” in which a cell absorbs radiation and seems unhurt but communicates damage to a neighboring cell, which can lead to cancer. [...]
Renewed Importance
The subject of low-dose radiation [...] has assumed renewed importance since the meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi reactors in Japan in March 2011. The accident contaminated the surrounding area, and questions persist about whether residents should be allowed to return or whether the radiation doses they would receive are too big a threat to their health.

Cesium exceeding new limit detected in 51 food items in nine prefectures


Radioactive cesium was detected in 51 food products from nine prefectures in excess of a new government-set limit in the first month since it was introduced April 1, according to data released by the health ministry Tuesday.
The limit was exceeded in 337 cases, or 2.4 percent of 13,867 food samples examined by the Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry.
Cesium exceeding the previous allowable limit of 500 becquerels per kilogram was detected in 55 cases, while the new limit of 100 becquerels was exceeded in 282 cases.

According to TEPCO, I rest a press conference “between the GW does not have much work on the premises.” Whether this explanation is true, can not be examined because they can not look in your own. Because the relationship between patrol and maintenance without breaks or contact of broken or leaking is expected to come.

Japan will no longer be a developed country in less than 40 years: Most Powerful Japanese Business Organization

Source: The Japan Times
Author: KEVIN RAFFERTY
Date: Wednesday, May 2, 2012
[...] Now it is at least semi-official: Japan’s economy is on the skids. A report just released by a think tank of the Nippon Keidanren, the country’s most powerful business organization, says that by 2050, Japan will no longer be a developed country, predicting years of negative growth from 2030 onward. 
“Unless something is done, we are afraid that Japan will fall out of the league of advanced nations and again become a tiny country in the Far East,” says the report in Japanese by the 21st Century Public Policy Institute (21st CPPI), the research institute of Keidanren. [...]
Tackling the real issues is complicated by distracting immediate problems exacerbated by the last year’s triple disasters of earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown at Fukushima. [...]
Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda has expressed his determination to get the nuclear plants operating again, warning that the alternative is electricity cuts of up to 20 percent in some areas during Japan’s sweltering sticky summer. But the government’s assertion that the nuclear plants at Oi are “more or less” safe to resume is an object lesson in political folly. [...]
