Correction: The slide of the four reactors labelled Fukushima Daichii should be labelled Fukushima Daini. This slide will be switched out and replaced with the correct slide as soon as possible.
Fukushima Reactor Disaster
On the advice of a friend, here’s the short version, just 2 action items. For the long version, read on.
The spent fuel pool at Fukushima Daiichi Reactor No. 4 is ready to collapse; just one more major earthquake and the pool drains and 262 tons of nuclear fuel melts down, forever altering our world; perhaps ending all life on earth. Tepco energy company is not up to the task. Take action:
Email the President and tell him to intervene personally in this crisis; it’s a matter of national security
Email the Secretary of State and tell her the same http://contact-us.state.gov/app/ask
To rephrase our conundrum:
The spent fuel pool above Reactor No. 4 contains 1,533 fuel rod assemblies, each assembly containing 63 nuclear fuel rods.262 tons of radioactive uranium-238, containing 1%, 2.6 tons of plutonium-239. 202 of those fuel rod assemblies are brand new, unused.
The building is falling apart. It leans to one side. The pool is cracked. It’s leaking. And now, TEPCO has placed 60 ton metal covers over the pool.
A word about TEPCO: They have close business ties to the Yakuza, who sometimes dictate policy, as well as provide contractors. It’s estimated that 33% of the workers at Fukushima Daiichi are either Yakuza, or their debtors. Others are mentally ill, developmentally disabled, homeless or minors; now TEPCO is advertising in foreign countries for workers, offering $378 a day for two hours’ work -and to live in the 20km zone. Native Japanese have earned from $38 up to $2,000 a day depending on the scarcity of labor, the progress at the plant, and the radiation risks of that day’s work.
The original staff is long gone.
TEPCO, by the way, asked permission from the prime minister to abandon Fukushima Daiichi, and Daini (another nuclear plant 7.1 miles away), when the reactors first started melting down. The PM demanded they stay. If they had abandoned the plants, you and I and everyone would be dead right now.
At this moment, your life is in their hands.
Scientists say that there is a 70% chance of a magnitude 7.0 earthquake hitting Fukushima this year, and a 98% chance within the next 3 years. Others are predicting another M.9 earthquake within this year. Fukushima has been experiencing earthquakes from magnitude 4.1 up to 6.2, almost every day for months. If an M.7 earthquake strikes, the building collapses and the pool ruptures and drains, a meltdown will occur releasing at least 10 times, and as much as 50 times the Cesium-137 as Chernobyl.
The molten cores of three of the reactors are now burrowing down into the earth; when they reach groundwater, there will likely be a huge hydrovolcanic explosion. Same result: collapse of the building and fuel pool, and a spent fuel meltdown.
There are also the consequences of something disrupting the electrical systems and shutting off power. A hurricane, flood, X-class solar flare or even a rat chewing through a wire could cause the cooling system to shut down. As the pool heats up, water will boil off and the fuel will melt down. A major loss of electricity would affect each one of the reactors and spent fuel pools.
TEPCO plans to start moving the fuel rods out of the pool in 2014. They expect the entire process will take at the very least 10 years, though they admit it could take up to 30.
TEPCO has so far refused all offers of outside help.”I have a vision of our galaxy, glowing silently in the deep night of space, crowded, massive. Around the galaxy, tiny lights go on, then off, at intervals; ceaselessly, throughout planetary aeons. Warm lights, appearing and extinguishing, again and again. These lights are planets, planets like ours that support sentient, self-aware life; that rise, develop lethal weaponry, and disappear. Perhaps in the universe, planets like ours come and go a dozen times in a day.”
Fukushima: How Many Chernobyls Is It?
Dr Scampa’s Lethal Doses Count Increases Dramatically
by Bob Nichols
(San Francisco) – The world’s second big nuclear disaster occurred at Chernobyl Reactor No. 4 in the Ukraine on Apr 26, 1986. Simply tagged as “Chernobyl,” it is what the next big and well known nuke disaster, after the American Three Mile Island, on March 28, 1979 came to be called. “Chernobyl” ejected 30% of one 192-ton, three-month old reactor core. That’s 57.6 radioactive tons thrown into the air by fire and explosions.
Startling NHK Image of Japanese Television
The tiny radioactive and burning smoke particles have traveled around the world many times since 1979, killing an estimated one million people to date from radiation caused illnesses and cancers. This is according to Editor Dr Janette Sherman’s exhaustive and widely acclaimed book on 5,000 Chernobyl scientific papers recently published by the New York Academy of Sciences .
Fukushima Daiichi Equals 50 Plus Chernobyls
As Dr. Michio Kaku, a world renowned CUNY theoretical physicist pointed out on CNN March 18, 2011, Chernobyl involved one reactor and only 57.6 Tons of the reactor core went into the atmosphere. In dramatic contrast, the Fukushima Daiichi disaster immediately involved six reactors and a whopping IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency, a UN Agency) documented 2,800 Tons of highly radioactive old reactor cores.
Dr Michio Kaku, theoretical physicist FavStocks
Simple division tells us there are at least 48.6 Chernobyls in the burning old reactor cores pumping fiery isotopes into the Earth’s atmosphere. It is no stretch to say Fukushima Daiichi’s six reactors and the dry holding pools for old reactor cores are equal to more than 50 Chernobyl disasters.
Further clarification is needed, of course, and it is being worked out now by independent physicists. Note that the lethality of radioactive reactor cores goes up the first 250,000 years they are out of the reactor – not down.
Looking at the current Japanese meltdown as more than 50 Chernobyls is just the start. In addition, the fate of the four nearby reactors at Fukushima Daini is as yet unknown by the outside world. Working at the nearby reactors, only 10 km (6 miles away) is a quick, painful death sentence. They are inside the mandatory evacuation zone.
This much is known. All radioactive exposures are cumulative for each human, animal and plant. What’s more, mutated genetic codes are passed on to offspring forever. This means all Japanese and all Northern Hemisphere inhabitants are suffering internal radioactive contamination from Fukushima Daiichi reactors already.
Fukushima Equals 3,000 Billion Lethal Doses
Dr Paolo Scampa, a widely know EU Physicist, single handedly popularized the easily understood Lethal Doses concept. “Lethal Doses” is a world wide, well understood idea that strips Physics bare and offers a brilliant, understandable explanation for all the physics gobbledygook Intelligence agencies and their respective governments use to disguise the brutal truths of the Fukushima Daiichi Disaster.
Fukushima from 21,000 ft TKY
Three thousand billion (3,000,000,000,000) Lethal Doses of Radiation means there are 429 Lethal Doses chasing each and every one of us on the planet, to put it in a nutshell. This is up from about 70 Billion Lethal Doses March 23, 2011. It is getting worse everyday without any intervention by the US and the other nuclear powers.
VeteransToday calls on the world’s nuclear powers to intervene sooner rather than later. It is up to the world’s only remaining Super Power, the United States, to get the Japan Reactor Disaster Intervention meeting officially underway.
The Fukushima Kill
The Fukushima Kill, already underway world wide, will certainly dwarf that of Chernobyl. All US Super Power President Obama’s delay does is increase the numbers of The Kill. That is a clear Choice. We call on President Obama to re-visit that Choice.
Further, the Genetic and DNA changing aspects of the radioactivity now in the air, spreading worldwide within a year, will spawn a grotesque new assortment of radiation-degraded mutants; both human and of other life forms.
International Forces Are Responsible For Fukushima;
An Immediate Global Response Needs To Be Formulated
Since the very first news about the Fukushima nuclear disaster came to light, many industry researchers and various investigations have unveiled the multi-decade plot to foist nuclear power onto the islands of Japan. The many forces arrayed against the Japanese people were so formidable that this ill-fated enterprise could only come to such an unfortunate outcome. Just as humankind learned from the folly of dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Fukushima has served as an example of how not to implement nuclear power generation.
“Quite purposefully, no one ever stopped to consider the obvious and far-reaching ramifications of constructing 55 nuclear reactors on the most seismically active piece of property on planet Earth! And, that doesn’t count another 12 reactors in various stages of planning or development.”
— An Open Letter to the People of Japan
If Japan is to remain habitable for future generations, there are certain (nuclear) matters confronting every corner of this island nation which must be addressed post haste. We know the people of Japan are up to it. The real question is whether the powers who have controlled their destiny are willing to back off for once since WWII.
Can the USA, the UK, France and Israel completely let go of their control of the Japanese economy, energy infrastructure and political process? Not only does the very existence of Japan rely on this relinquishment of control, the futures of the USA, UK and France do as well.
“Tokyo has the largest greater metro population in the world at about 34.3 million. Tokyo has the largest GDP of all major cities in the world – larger than both New York City and London. Tokyo is the economic/financial capital of the world’s 3rd largest national economy, as well as the primary economic engine of East Asia.”
– As Fukushima Goes, So Goes Japan
Most are not aware, even at the very highest levels of the Global Control Matrix, but as Fukushima goes, so goes Japan. Taken to its logical conclusion we can say with absolute certainty that as Japan goes, so goes the entire planet. In reality, Japan is not only a super-charged trigger point in the Pacific Ring of Fire, it is also a lynchpin for the world economy as the previous article well explains. Therefore, we would highly advise the Anglo-American power structure to take proper responsibility for this unprecedented global catastrophe and show up in great force on the Honshu coastline to remediate and de-activate wherever still possible.
Global “Manhattan Project” Required
It is quite quizzical that those who run the Global Control Matrix have not yet seized the day. What is clearly at stake is the Pacific Ocean, its shorelines, numerous national economies, as well as myriad ecosystems and aquatic environments.
If they persist in this display of passivity and willful neglect, the planet may never recover. Surely, we can offer the observation that as the Pacific becomes exposed to massive volumes of radioactive water being dumped from the Fukushima site, eventually this radiation will find its way to the four corners of that ocean and beyond.
Syrian false flag planned?
Never bet against Washington’s imperial plans. New tactics follow failed ones. Efforts to oust Bashar- al-Assad continue. Proxy killers can’t do it alone. They’re no match against Syria’s superior military strength. It’s committed to rout them.
Expect NATO intervention anytime or perhaps post-US November elections. Libya 2.0 looks increasingly likely. What better way to finesse it than by staging a false flag attack blamed on Assad.
America’s false flag history suggests it. In 1898, Spain was falsely accused of blowing up the USS Maine in Havana, Cuba harbor. The Spanish-American war followed.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt manipulated Japan to attack Pearl Harbor. South Korea was used to instigate war on the North. Lyndon Johnson wanted war on Vietnam and got it. Fake threats sent US marines to Grenada. Manufactured incidents precipitated America’s Panama invasion.”
Saddam Hussein was head-faked into invading Kuwait. The [Persian]Gulf War, two decades of sanctions, another war, and occupation followed.
September 11, 2001 was the mother of all false flags. It’s the big lie of our time. Eleven years of imperial wars followed. One segues to another without end. Syria is Washington’s latest. Iran may be next. Proxy wars always rage. Media silence makes pretexts unnecessary.
On August 20, Barack Obama perhaps signaled US intervention intentions. He told reporters:
“I have indicated repeatedly that President al-Assad has lost legitimacy, that he needs to step down. So far, he hasn’t gotten the message, and instead has double downed in violence on his own people.”
“I have, at this point, not ordered military engagement in the situation. But the point that you made about chemical and biological weapons is critical.”
“That’s an issue that doesn’t just concern Syria. It concerns our close allies in the region, including Israel. It concerns us. We cannot have a situation where chemical or biological weapons are falling into the hands of the wrong people.”
“We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus. That would change my equation.”
“We have communicated in no uncertain terms with every player in the region that that’s a red line for us and that there would be enormous consequences if we start seeing movement on the chemical weapons front or the use of chemical weapons. That would change my calculations significantly.”
Tehran NAM summit to show Iran active intl. diplomacy: Lawmaker
Those speaking of Iran’s isolation are only a small number of countries, including the Zionist regime (of Israel), the US, Britain and France, which think they own the world. Because Iran doesn’t take any note of them, they want to reach their goals through arrogance and pressures.”
Iranian lawmaker Esmail Kowsari
“The isolated are actually those who think they rule the world, but are despised by world nations as a result of their expansionist and arrogant policies,” Esmail Kowsari, a member of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, told Fars News Agency on Tuesday.
He added, “Hosting the NAM summit, given the 120 member states of the movement, marks a mammoth task.”
The lawmaker said the fact that NAM member states have expressed desire to take part in the Tehran summit either at foreign ministerial or expert level attests to the significance of the political task undertaken by the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Kowsari further noted that the presence of the NAM member states in Tehran summit will exhibit dynamism of the Iranian political and foreign policy figures in the regional and international spheres.
“Those speaking of Iran’s isolation are only a small number of countries, including the US, Britain, France and the Zionists, which think they own the world. Because Iran doesn’t take any note of them, they want to reach their goals through arrogance and pressure,” he pointed out.
The Iranian lawmaker further noted that arrogant powers are making claims of Iran’s isolation in the international community since the Islamic Republic has stood against them.
Kowsari highlighted that Iran enjoys close political, economic and cultural ties with most world countries.
The 16th summit of the NAM member states will be held in the Iranian capital between August 26 and 31.
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei will address the Tehran NAM summit.
The United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is also expected to participate in the event during which the Islamic Republic will assume the rotating presidency of the movement for three years.
NAM, an international organization with 120 member states and 21 observer countries, is considered as not formally aligned with or against any major power bloc.

Cognitive Dissonance, Avoidance, Denial, & Rationalization
Denial and avoidance are among the most important psychological concepts to the Truth Movement. Mentally, what allows people to block out clear signs that our modern way of life is corrupt and unsustainable? What keeps people from caring?
How are people able to go on with their lives as normal when they hear that 50% of all species will be extinct by 2100? Why don’t such facts disturb people and make them curious enough to start looking into the details for themselves?
Cognitive dissonance relates to the concept of being exposed to information or having experiences that conflict with our existing base of “what we know.” The theory holds that our minds are not always flexible or rational when it comes to evaluating uncomfortable information or questioning our own beliefs.
“Dissonant cognitions” will cause us to dismiss or alter conflicting information or add justification to one side or the other—not necessarily rationally—in order to regain psychological balance. It’s an important concept to consider in terms of the way people block things out or justify things to themselves.

- Wikipedia: Denial
- Encyclopedia of Educational Technology: Cognitive Dissonance
- Cognitive Dissonance Theory
- Culture of Mass Denial Encounters Cognitive Dissonance
If there is a lot of built up psychological stake in a certain position or attitude and a piece of solid evidence comes in which conflicts with that position, it may be easier, psychologically, to dismiss the new information than alter the existing structure.
You can imagine how ingrained psychological structures can be when a human being is raised within a certain country, system, or reality. Growing up in the US, or any culture, for that matter, you will absorb an overwhelming number of messages about what is true, what is possible, and what is important.
Many of of these messages are absorbed subconsciously and become part of the basic structure of our reality. It becomes very difficult to question the fundamentals when opposing messages only come in small doses from the “fringe.”
Consider these two examples:
- Believing that your friend is trustworthy (having built up that attitude over years of experience) is a cognition that would be dissonant with the sudden discovery of your friend stealing money from you. As a result, you might seek to dismiss or minimize the importance of this new information—maybe telling yourself it was a freak thing, a joke, or an accident, or that he was broke or desperate or on drugs. You might even try to forget that you saw it.
- In presenting new, contradictory (dissonant) evidence concerning 9/11, it is frustrating how many people immediately begin to bring up rationalizations and excuses in order to dismiss the significance of the information. You can often witness cognitive dissonance in action as these skeptics try to avoid the psychological turmoil of facing the very disturbing implications of 9/11 Truth. The collapse of WTC 7 is an interesting example. Skeptics are likely to quickly dismiss this piece of evidence rather than acknowledge the suspicious fact that the destruction of a third skyscraper was essentially blacked-out of the official story of 9/11 by the government and media.
“Conspiracy theories” seem to be the quintessentially cognitive dissonant concepts of our culture. For many people, the idea that JFK was killed by the government or “9/11 was an inside job” threatens the entire fabric of their consciousness. These things simply cannot be true and people will bend over backwards and resort to irrationality and ridicule to avoid considering them.
Cognitive dissonance can work both ways. It is extremely difficult to maintain a vigilantly open mind. Whatever your dominant perspective or worldview happens to be, it is inevitable that you will sometimes use rationalizations in order to save the time or mental stress of dealing with conflicting information. Cognitive dissonance is actually a necessary and natural mental function, but it is also a phenomenon that we should be aware of, in ourselves and others, as it is a process that does not always serve us well in the quest for objectivity and truth.
Amerika’s Future is Death

“The day we see truth and do not speak is the day we begin to die.”
– Martin Luther King
Conspiracy theories have now blossomed into what the smug presstitute media calls a “conspiracy culture.” According to the presstitutes, Americans have to find some explanation for their frustrations and failings, so Americans shift the blame to the Bilderbergers, the Rothschilds, the New World Order and so forth and so on.
Readers will not be surprised that I disagree with the presstitutes. Indeed, the conspiracy culture is the product of the presstitute media’s failure to investigate and to report truthfully. I am certain that the Western media is worse than the Soviet media was. The Soviet media devised ways for helping the public to read between the lines, whereas the Western media is so proud to be confidants of the government that they deliver the propaganda without any clues to the readers that it is propaganda.
Americans have been fed lies by “their” government and the government’s presstitute media for so long that it is not surprising that Americans increasingly believe that there is a conspiracy operating against them. Millions of Americans have been evicted from their jobs, careers, and homes while the crooks who stole from them run free and bankroll the presidential candidates. The world as millions of Americans knew it has come to an end, and no one has been held accountable. The explanation that Americans get from the media is that it is their own fault. They bought houses they shouldn’t have bought, and they didn’t train for the right jobs. It is not unreasonable for Americans to conclude that a conspiracy is operating against them.
Americans are told that “their” government cannot afford to help them because of the budget deficit and the burden on our grandchildren. But Americans see the trillions of dollars that are lavished on banksters, on wars, and on Homeland Security. Why is a police state and another attack on another Muslim country more important than keeping Americans in their jobs and in their homes?
Cesium measured from American green nuts
A Japanese supermarket chain, Maruetsu measured cesium from pistachio imported from US. [Link]
98% of American pistachio is produced in California. [Link]
The measurement was on 8/11/2012, it was 9.54 Bq/Kg. (Cs-137)
Also, 5.59 Bq/Kg of Cs-137 was measured from Japanese trout. It was from Shiga in western Japan.(540km from Fukushima plant)
6.62 Bq/Kg of Cs-137 was measured from beef in Shimane. Shimane is in western Japan as well. (750 km from Fukushima plant)
This is as much as beef in Chiba (6.43 Bq/Kg, Cs-137), where is in eastern Japan. Chiba is only 220km from Fukushima plant, is known to be a hotspot.

Fukushima Fallout …
A Mother’s Response
Nuclear Disasters and Lessons Learned… A Mother’s Response
Facts are facts. There have been at least three major nuclear power disasters to date: Three Mile Island in 1979, Chernobyl in 1986, and now Fukushima Daiichi in 2011… and there are many more smaller nuclear accidents and near misses every year. Do we wait for another catastrophic event, or do we act now?
Nuclear fallout is a harmful and mysterious tragedy that we can’t see, taste, hear, smell or feel. Rather than recoil in fear from Fukushima Daiichi, it really only serves to empower us into further action. This book is a mother’s account of dealing with radioactive fallout from the Fukushima Daiichi disaster, the worst in world history. This book speaks to the urgent need for food monitoring, conservation and renewable energy, as radiation from nuclear power is now migrating into our homes and kitchens.
The BND estimates that al-Qaeda has carried out “about 90 terrorist attacks” in Syria between late last December and early July, German daily Die Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung wrote in an article on July 16.
The revelation was made public by the German government in response to a parliamentary question.
The German government also confirmed that it had received numerous reports from the BND on al-Qaeda’s involvement in the May 25 massacre in the Syrian town of Houla in the central province of Homs, in which 108 people, including dozens of children and women, were killed execution-style.
However, the German government stated that the reports were supposed to remain classified “by reason of national interest.”
The West and the Syrian opposition blamed the Syrian government for the carnage, but a Syrian government-appointed fact-finding mission had said that armed groups had carried out the massacre to frame the government and foment sectarian strife.
The intelligence reports raise several questions about the terrorist nature of the self-proclaimed Free Syrian Army, and even more so about the fact that many of the armed terrorists, killed in clashes with Syrian security forces, carried foreign passports.
On Thursday, The New York Times published an article, stating that “the evidence is mounting that Syria has become a magnet for Sunni extremists, including those operating under the banner of al-Qaeda.”
Syria has been the scene of violence by armed groups since March 2011. The violence has claimed the lives of hundreds of people, including many security forces.
Damascus blames “outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups” for the unrest, asserting that it is being orchestrated from abroad. The West and the Syrian opposition accuse the government of killing the protesters.
Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and most western countries have supported and funded the violence in Syria by providing logistics, arms, and intelligence to anti-government elements.
Lavrov comment on US practically JUSTIFIED Terrorism: UN refused to condemn acts of terror in Syria
Joke F Lübbecke of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory and 3 scientists from the GEOMAR Research Center for Marine Geosciences poured tracer dye into coastal waters off of Fukushima, and monitored its progress as it traveled to the West Coast of North America, to find out what might really happen.
They have revealed their results in a new paper published by journal Environmental Research Letters.
The paper shows that the West Coast of North American could end up with 10 times more radioactive cesium 137 than the coastal waters off of Japan itself.
How could radiation levels be lower closer to the source of contamination: Fukushima?
(NaturalNews) One of the most shocking realization emerging from the James Holmes Batman movie shooting rampage in Aurora, Colorado is the fact that nobody apparently tried to stop the shooter. This is absolutely baffling. Out of at least 70 moviegoers (and maybe more, as numbers remain sketchy at the moment), it appears that nobody tried to tackle him to the ground, shoot back with their own gun, or even fight back in any way whatsoever. The accounts of witnesses are those of people fleeing, ducking and screaming… but not fighting for their lives.
This story is in no way intended to blame those present at the theater for what was obviously a horrifying, shocking and probably very confusing event, but at the same time we must ask the question: Why did no one fight back?
See my previous story, by the way, which asks other questions about this shooting, such as where did Holmes get the training and the funds to build a complex maze of flammable booby-traps? That story is available at:
“There were bullet [casings] just falling on my head. They were burning my forehead,” Jennifer Seeger told reporters in an LA Times article (http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2012/07/colorado-shooting-suspe…). “Every few seconds it was just: Boom, boom, boom,” she said. “He would reload and shoot and anyone who would try to leave would just get killed.”
Another bizarre quote appears in the Daily Mail: (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2176450/The-Dark-Knight-Rises…)
A baby was shot at point blank range, the family were gathered around screaming.
Ayatollah Seyed Ahmad Khatami said the recent terrorist act in Syria, which caused death of a number of high ranking officials of the Syrian government, indicated the depth of spitefulness of hegemonic powers toward Syrian government and nation.
He underlined that Iran has repeatedly said Syria is paying the price for supporting oppressed people, Lebanese Hezbollah and the Islamic Republic of Iran, especially during the imposed eight-year war.
The major cleric said that US, Britain, European Union, reactionary Arabs, Al-Qaida and a number of Syrian neighbors, who are dreaming past empires, are committing crimes against Syria.
He also condemned disastrous massacre of Muslims in Myanmar and strongly criticized remarks of Myanmar president that Muslims are not citizens of that country and considered Myanmar government responsible for this barbaric killing.
A movie reveling the satanic powers:
Al-Alam and Reuters Report Hillary Clinton Convoy Attack in Israel
Israeli radio and Reuters broke the story then went mysteriously silent, an assassination attempt inside Israel, on Secretary of State Clinton.
Soon afterward, Iran’s national network, al Alam went public with a translated version which is being boycotted by news services.
Details on the unsuccessful murder attempt on America’s top diplomat below but first some background.
Possibly responsible for the assassination attempt on Clinton is this tale of deceit by Rep. Michelle Bachmann as outlined by CNN’s Andersen Cooper:
We see this as part of a pattern of escalation by Israel, carefully orchestrated terrorism which may well culminate in an attack on the London Olympics as has been predicted by many. Nothing less could bring about the result Netanyahu desires, a massive US and NATO air attack on Iran, and note this carefully, not an attack on Syria.
The video below describes how Israeli contractors are sabotaging London Olympic security. Highly credible source:
It is our opinion that this is a valid news story. We believe the attack on Clinton is related to the current political upheaval in Israel, an attempt to kill Clinton, blame Iran and take the focus off the domestic political meltdown.
We also feel the bus attack in Bulgaria, killing 6 Israeli citizens is highly suspect for the same reasons as well.
Such an attack would be, not only a war crime, but, were there careful investigations, we already bask in thousands of “unprosecuted” war crimes already, “war though sanction based on wild conspiracy theory,” Obama’s part in this, and the endless plots by puppet regimes throughout the Middle East, some in need of an external war to prevent their own overthrow by freedom loving citizens who have “had enough” of dictatorship.
Iran has been a target for years, almost reminding me of British author H. G. Well’s book, War of the Worlds. One quote comes to mind from Chapter 1:
“The eve of the war –No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man’s and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinised and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinise the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. With infinite complacency men went to and fro over this globe about their little affairs, serene in their assurance of their empire over matter…No one gave a thought to the older worlds of space as sources of human danger, or thought of them only to dismiss the idea of life upon them as impossible or improbable…Yet across the gulf of space, minds that are to our minds as ours are to those of the beasts that perish, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic, regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us.”
Wells could well have been talking of today with Iran the target of those “intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic,” those who “regarded earth (Iran) with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us.” MORE>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
On the effective role of women in social developments across the globe, the president said, “If women are determined [to make a change in any community], it is impossible that nothing would transpire and we have witnessed this in Iran and we can see it today in the world.”
“American people lack freedom of choice; it is the Zionists that decide who will become the [US] president according to their needs,” the president added.
Noting that today Europe and the US “have demolished” the existence of women, he added, “So long as women do not play their respective role, plundering, colonialism and crime will ensue and today the biggest abuse and repression has been carried out against women.”
The Iranian president addressed the female participants of the conference, saying “your mission is quite burdensome.” He also urged them not to confine such a “divine mission” based on race, geographical location, ethnicity or language.
He further described that all the freedom-loving and justice-seeking human beings are brothers, vowing that “the global domination by the US and the Zionist regime is unsettled and will be replaced by justice.”
President Ahmadinejad reiterated that at the time of slavery the repression of human being was overtly carried out; however, today the hegemonic powers resort to pro-human rights and freedom slogans to deceive the world.
He also rejected free elections in the US, insisting that “a group of corrupt Zionist capitalists are acting behind the scenes in the US and rule over 300 million Americans and other nations.”
AN UNEXPECTED MORTALITY INCREASE IN
THE UNITED STATES FOLLOWS ARRIVAL OF THE
RADIOACTIVE PLUME FROM FUKUSHIMA:
IS THERE A CORRELATION?
Joseph J. Mangano and Janette D. Sherman
We recently reported on an unusual rise in infant deaths in the northwestern
United States for the 10-week period following the arrival of the airborne radioactive
plume from the meltdowns at the Fukushima plants in northern Japan.
This result suggested that radiation from Japan may have harmed Americans,
thus meriting more research.
Caldicott: “We’re talking about a disaster of unbound proportions” from Fukushima Daiichi — 2.5 to 3 million deaths a possibility (VIDEO)
14,000 Americans Already Killed By Fukushima Fallout!!!
Conclusive proof from a reliable and credible source!!! 14,000 Americans already dead!!! Run while you still can!!! Save yourself!!! Don’t bother to pack your things!!! Just go!!! The Japanese and US governments are conspiring with the Jews, from their secret submarine hidden under the polar ice-cap!!! They’re silencing the media, in order to keep the truth from you!!! It’s a plot so that George Bush can steal oil… Or something!!!…

A collapse of the already tilting reactor No 4 building at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi plant, ¬atop which sits a spent nuclear fuel storage pool containing 1,535 fuel assemblies – including 204 unused ones – would lead to a “significant global impact,”– by far topping last year’s triple meltdown at the plant, a new report says. Charles Digges, 03/07-2012
According to the report (available for download in PDF at lower right in blue box) released by Holophi CH, a Swiss-based industrial analytics think-tank, even a 10 percent release of the storage pool’s inventory of radioactive cesium and strontium would “represent 3 to 10 times the March 11, 2011 release amounts, substantially increasing risk levels in Japan and marine life.”
“This is an acute example that we will have to live with the threats emanating from Fukushima for years to come,” said Nils Bøhmer, Bellona’s nuclear physicist and general manager.
EXCESS U.S. DEATHS AFTER FUKUSHIMA RISE FROM 14,000 TO 22,000
AFTER ANALYSIS UPDATED
Joseph J. Mangano
Radiation and Public Health Project
February 23, 2012
The 2010-2011 change in reported U.S. deaths in the 14 weeks after fallout from the Fukushima nuclear meltdown arrived in this country is now estimated to be 21,851 deaths greater than expected, up from 13,983 originally estimated. The new figures were based on deaths for the entire years 2010 and 2011, which recently became available; earlier estimates were based on data for only part of 2011.
Joseph Mangano and Janette Sherman calculated the 2010-2011 increase in deaths in 122 U.S. cities for the period March 20 to June 25 to be +3.99%, vs. +0.73% for the rest of the year. Extrapolating this difference to the entire U.S. yields 21,851 excess deaths in these 14 weeks. Fukushima fallout arrived in the U.S. March 16, 2011.
The data is taken from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) weekly report on deaths for the 122 cities, about one-quarter of the U.S. Final statistics for 2010-2011 will not be public until late 2014. The new findings updates the article Mangano and Sherman published in the International Journal of Health Services in December 2011.
Other new findings include:
1. A similar pattern to U.S. deaths in the four months after Chernobyl (estimated excess over 20,000, final excess 16,573)
2. All age groups (<1, 1-24, 25-44, 45-64, 65+) had an excess number of deaths in the spring of 2011 vs. 2010
3. The highest percent excess deaths was for infants under age one, who are most susceptible to radiation exposure
4. A very large 2010-2011 increase in pneumonia/influenza deaths occurred after Fukushima (+11.49% in the spring vs. +1.55% for the rest of the year); this was the only cause of death given by the CDC
5. A very large 2010-2011 increase in total deaths occurred in Boise ID, where Fukushima exposures were probably higher than most of the U.S. (+22.68% in the spring vs. 5.71% for the rest of the year)
These findings raise concerns about potential health hazards from Fukushima. Mangano and Sherman urge that more studies be conducted on the topic.
The single most articulate and passionate advocate of citizen action to remedy the nuclear and environmental crises, Dr Helen Caldicott, has devoted the last 38 years to an international campaign to educate the public about the medical hazards of the nuclear age and the necessary changes in human behavior to stop environmental destruction.
Born in Melbourne, Australia in 1938, Dr Caldicott received her medical degree from the University of Adelaide Medical School in 1961. She founded the Cystic Fibrosis Clinic at the Adelaide Children’s Hospital in 1975 and subsequently was an instructor in pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and on the staff of the Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Boston, Mass., until 1980 when she resigned to work full time on the prevention of nuclear war.
In 1971, Dr Caldicott played a major role in Australia’s opposition to French atmospheric nuclear testing in the Pacific; in 1975 she worked with the Australian trade unions to educate their members about the medical dangers of the nuclear fuel cycle, with particular reference to uranium mining.

During a recent Congressional delegation trip to Japan, Oregon Senator Ron Wyden witnessed with his own eyes the horrific aftermath of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, which we have heard very little about from the media in recent months. The damage situation was apparently so severe, according to his account, that he has now written a letter to Ichiro Fujisaki, Ambassador of Japan, petitioning for more to be done, and offering any additional support and assistance that might help contain and resolve the situation as quickly as possible.
The letter, which many experts see as the ominous writing on the wall for the grave severity of the circumstances, offers a disturbing glimpse into what is really going on across the Pacific Ocean that the mainstream media is apparently ignoring. While referencing the fact that all four of the affected reactors are still “badly damaged,” Sen. Wyden seems to hint in his letter that Reactor 4, which has reportedly been on the verge of collapse for many months now, could be nearing catastrophic implosion.
Imminent collapse of Reactor 4 could create a mass extinction event of both humans and animals
Fukushima is not safe or stable and with more than 10,000 tons of enriched nuclear material, that is enough to make 10s of thousands of nuclear bombs. And it would spread throughout the Northern Hemisphere.

“The nuclear bomb is the worst inhumane weapon and which must totally be eliminated. The NPT prohibits its development and stockpiling and calls for nuclear disarmament.
Nonetheless, note what some of the permanent members of the Security Council and nuclear bomb holders have done:
They have equated nuclear energy with the nuclear bomb, and have distanced this energy from the reach of most of nations by establishing monopolies and pressuring the IAEA. While at the same time, they have continued to maintain, expand and upgrade their own nuclear arsenals.
This has entailed the following:
Not only the nuclear disarmament has not been realized but also nuclear bombs have been proliferated in some regions, including by the occupying and intimidating Zionist regime.
I would like here to propose that the year 2011 be proclaimed the year of nuclear disarmament and “Nuclear Energy for all, Nuclear Weapons for None.”
