Fukushima Radiation Seen in Tuna off California

Small amounts of cesium-137 and cesium-134 were detected in 15 tuna caught near San Diego in August 2011, about four months after these chemicals were released into the water off Japan's east coast, scientists reported on Monday.

That is months earlier than wind and water currents brought debris from the plant to waters off Alaska and the U.S. Pacific Northwest.

The amount of radioactive cesium in the fish is not thought to be damaging to people if consumed, the researchers said in a study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Without making a definitive judgment on the safety of the fish, lead author Daniel Madigan of Stanford University's Hopkins Marine Station noted that the amount of radioactive material detected was far less than the Japanese safety limit.

"I wouldn't tell anyone what's safe to eat or what's not safe to eat," Madigan said in a telephone interview. "It's become clear that some people feel that any amount of radioactivity, in their minds, is bad and they'd like to avoid it. But compared to what's there naturally ... and what's established as safety limits, it's not a large amount at all."

Low dose radiation is harmful. There is no completely safe level. Previous videos and articles on this blog have explained the science. Although the damage from Caesium is slight, there are adverse health effects over the longer term.

Plus, we know that radioactive fallout from Fukushima has been detected all over the northern hemisphere - much of it occurring in the days following the 3 complete meltdowns. This is exactly like Chernobyl.

Election Results for Ron Paul's Home District in Brazoria County Were He Resides(There is Cheating)

I live in Brazoria County Texas. Ron Paul lives in Lake Jackson/Clute Texas. When I went to the polling place to vote. There was a line at the precinct to vote. I do not think those people were running out to vote for Romney. I did not see a Romney sign, but I seen Ron Paul signs all over the county. Texas where they could not get people to canvas for Mitt Romney, Where not hardly no one showed up to his rallies.

In a county where the last congressional primary in 2010 carried 70 percent of the county with no opposition from the democrats in the race from the 14th district gets only 11 percent in the 2012 primary. The County GOP and the county government hate Ron Paul because he does not bring home the goodies from Washington. Texas cheated no self respecting Texan would vote for a Massachusetts gun grabbing liberal unless you are Rick Perry

Record 45% of Iraq and Afghanistan Vets Have Filed for Disability

According to a new report from the Associated Press, a record 45% of the 1.6 million veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are seeking compensation for service-related injuries.

This is more than double the rate for Gulf War veterans. For all the publicity given to “Gulf War syndrome,” only an estimated 21% of the veterans of that conflict have filed disability claims.

The recent applicants are also citing a much larger number of ailments than veterans of previous wars — an average of eight or nine per person, which has shot up over the past year to 11 to 14. This compares to less than four for Vietnam War veterans who are currently receiving compensation, and just two for veterans of World War II and Korea.

The causes of the increase, and to what extent it simply reflects the poor economy, are not clear. “Government officials and some veterans’ advocates say that veterans who might have been able to work with certain disabilities may be more inclined to seek benefits now because they lost jobs or can’t find any,” the AP explains.

Much of the change, however, is clearly the legitimate result of more soldiers surving life-threatening injuries, along with an increased incidence of concussions and severe hearing loss resulting from IED blasts.

Even the heavy body armor that helps save lives can often leave soldiers with back, shoulder, and knee problems that sometimes require orthopedic surgery. In addition, 400,000 veterans have already been treated for mental health problems, most often post-traumatic stress disorder, and these have been exacerbated by multiple deployments.

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/05/27/record-45-of-iraq-and-afghanistan-vets-have-filed-for-disability/

And all of these individuals have suffered because of the completely unnecessary post 911 wars.

RECAP: The 911 Debunkers' Debating Tactics

By "Truth Sleuth"

1. Dummy up. If it's not reported, if it's not news, it didn't happen.

2. Wax indignant. This is also known as the "How dare you?" gambit.

3. Characterize the charges as "rumors" or, better yet, "wild rumors." If, in spite of the news blackout, the public is still able to learn about the suspicious facts, it can only be through "rumors." (If they tend to believe the "rumors" it must be because they are simply "paranoid" or "hysterical.")

4. Knock down straw men. Deal only with the weakest aspects of the weakest charges. Even better, create your own straw men. Make up wild rumors (or plant false stories) and give them lead play when you appear to debunk all the charges, real and fanciful alike.

5. Call the skeptics names like "conspiracy theorist," "nutcase," "ranter," "kook," "crackpot," and, of course, "rumor monger." Be sure, too, to use heavily loaded verbs and adjectives when characterizing their charges and defending the "more reasonable" government and its defenders. You must then carefully avoid fair and open debate with any of the people you have thus maligned. For insurance, set up your own "skeptics" to shoot down.

6. Impugn motives. Attempt to marginalize the critics by suggesting strongly that they are not really interested in the truth but are simply pursuing a partisan political agenda or are out to make money (compared to over-compensated adherents to the government line who, presumably, are not).

7. Invoke authority. Here the controlled press and the sham opposition can be very useful.

8. Dismiss the charges as "old news."

9. Come half-clean. This is also known as "confession and avoidance" or "taking the limited hangout route." This way, you create the impression of candor and honesty while you admit only to relatively harmless, less-than-criminal "mistakes." This stratagem often requires the embrace of a fall-back position quite different from the one originally taken. With effective damage control, the fall-back position need only be peddled by stooge skeptics to carefully limited markets.

10. Characterize the crimes as impossibly complex and the truth as ultimately unknowable.

11. Reason backward, using the deductive method with a vengeance. With thoroughly rigorous deduction, troublesome evidence is irrelevant. E.g. We have a completely free press. If evidence exists that the Vince Foster "suicide" note was forged, they would have reported it. They haven't reported it so there is no such evidence. Another variation on this theme involves the likelihood of a conspiracy leaker and a press who would report the leak.

12. Require the skeptics to solve the crime completely. E.g. If Foster was murdered, who did it and why?

13. Change the subject. This technique includes creating and/or publicizing distractions.

14. Lightly report incriminating facts, and then make nothing of them. This is sometimes referred to as "bump and run" reporting.

15. Baldly and brazenly lie. A favorite way of doing this is to attribute the "facts" furnished the public to a plausible-sounding, but anonymous, source.

16. Expanding further on numbers 4 and 5, have your own stooges "expose" scandals and champion popular causes. Their job is to pre-empt real opponents and to play 99-yard football. A variation is to pay rich people for the job who will pretend to spend their own money.

17. Flood the Internet with agents. This is the answer to the question, "What could possibly motivate a person to spend hour upon hour on Internet news groups defending the government and/or the press and harassing genuine critics?" Don't the authorities have defenders enough in all the newspapers, magazines, radio, and television? One would think refusing to print critical letters and screening out serious callers or dumping them from radio talk shows would be control enough, but, obviously, it is not.

http://forum.911movement.org/index.php?showtopic=2434&st=30

Also in regard to the last point about flooding the Internet with agents. Often more than one debunker will attempt to misdirect the audience and put "peer" pressure on their opponent(s).

The debunkers will try to form a little consensus with one debunker playing dumb and then "eventually" agreeing with the points being made by the other debunkers. Of course there are certain individuals who are genuinely suckered into believing some of the misguided arguments put out by the disinformation trolls. The effect is the same.

Syrian Government Denies Involvement in Houla Massacre

Political analyst Ibrahim Alloush told RT that the way the attack was done and its timing “make it obvious” that Damascus is not responsible.

“It would not make sense for the Syrian army to commit these massacres and withdraw, and then just let the rebels come and take photos and make documentaries about them,” he explained.

Alloush believes the crimes were committed “by the armed gangs supported from abroad, from the GCC countries and from the NATO specifically through Turkey.”

The analyst insists that the massacre in Houla was carried out in the context of a broad attack throughout the area.

“They also attacked the national hospital in the region and they set fire to it. Then they turned to civilian houses in some of the neighboring villages and they started killing indiscriminately,” he said, emphasizing that among those killed were people loyal to Assad.

Alloush also said that the timing of the attack makes it look suspicious.

“These crimes have come at a point when a political solution has slated for the Syrian question, and these people do not want to see a political solution – instead they want to see an armed intervention, an international foreign intervention in Syria under pretext of massacres,” he concluded
.
http://www.rt.com/news/damascus-refutes-accusations-houla-massacre-339/

At present we still do not know exactly who carried out the attack but it is worth noting the reasons WHY the Syrian Government may not have been involved. And with the US record of lying about Iraq, plus pushing of propaganda in the war on terror, it is difficult to believe their (including allies) side of the story either.

However, we must be cautious because even if Ron Paul has 100% of the delegates those who count the votes can still cook the books. The convention at Tampa must be conducted so that the vote count can be independently verified.

Mitt Romney Scared Ron Paul is Winning



In relation to the above, I am guessing that part of the reason Paul is winning delegates, even though he lost in the earlier voting, is because the vote count had been rigged. In many places it was incredible to think that Paul had so little support despite the fact that he apparently had so many people turn out to back him. The media meme on this was simply that Paul only had strong support from young people and an Internet presence. Ron Paul's message is very popular.

Russia: Forces Unable to Destabilize Syria Turn to Lebanon

Forces which have failed to implement their plans to destabilize Syria have turned to Lebanon, Russian’s foreign ministry said on Monday.

"Moscow is seriously concerned by growing internal tensions in Lebanon. It appears that the forces that have failed to realize their plans to destabilize Syria have turned to neighboring Lebanon," the ministry said on its website.

"They clearly dislike this country's government course aimed at preventing foreign intervention in Syrian affairs and facilitating a swift peaceful settlement in Syria on the basis of Kofi Annan's plan approved by the United Nations Security Council, and the actions of military and security agencies opposing arms smuggling attempts and the trafficking of militants," the ministry said.

To attain their goals these forces are trying to stoke tensions among various Lebanese political and sectarian forces, the ministry added
.
http://www.naharnet.com/stories/en/40953-russia-forces-unable-to-destabilize-syria-turn-to-lebanon

These forces have been operating out of Turkey and are heavily backed by Western interests. Rather than a broad popular uprising we are seeing huge outside support for a small opposition group. The danger is that the targeted countries may collapse into a disastrous mess like what we have seen in Iraq and Libya. This is not good for the people living there, who tend to get displaced or killed, but it is a bonus for the Western supporters of these insurgents.

US Prepares Multi-Front Proxy War Against Syria

Since the Washington Post’s May 16 report on an influx of arms to Syrian opposition forces, the Obama administration’s plans for a proxy war against Syria have become clearer still.

The Post wrote of “significantly more and better weapons” reaching oppositionists, “paid for by Persian Gulf nations [Saudi Arabia and Qatar] and coordinated in part by the United States,” based upon a perspective that “an expanding military confrontation is inevitable.”

Saudi Arabia and Qatar were sending weapons with approval from Washington, which has “expanded contacts with opposition forces to provide the gulf nations with assessments of rebel credibility and command-and-control infrastructure.”

Romney Adviser Bolton Falsely Claims IAEA Is ‘Unambiguous’ That Iran Has A Nuke Weapons Program

Mitt Romney adviser and former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton is no stranger to hawkish rhetoric when it comes to Iran’s alleged nuclear weapons program. In January he called for an outright war, telling Fox news “the better way to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons is to attack its nuclear weapons program directly” and, in February, he fanned the flames of war even further, saying, “I don’t think it’s in our interest to stay out” of a war between Israel and Iran.

But while Bolton and his fellow hawks are welcome to assert their own hypotheses about Iran’s nuclear intentions and how the U.S. should respond, the facts about U.S. and IAEA intelligence findings on Iran’s nuclear program are not a matter for debate. Today, Bolton made a completely unsubstantiated assertion about intelligence findings on Iran’s nuclear program

http://thinkprogress.org/security/2012/05/23/489446/romney-adviser-bolton-iran/?mobile=nc

Bolton is a heinous warmongering Neocon. There has not been a war in the Middle East that this guy didn't approve of. The fact that he is on Romney's team raises a huge red flag.

In its 2012 annual report published on Wednesday, the rights group called US drone attacks in Yemen “extrajudicial executions,” Amnesty International’s website said.

Amnesty also censured US President Barack Obama’s failure to shut down the Guantanamo Bay detention camp and criticized conditions in US prisons.

The report said that at the end of 2011, almost two years after Obama’s deadline to close the detention center, “171 men were still held at the base, including four who had been convicted by military commission.”

In addition, Amnesty criticized Washington for its “use of lethal force” for the “unlawful” killing of Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan in May 2011

Scientism - Why Pseudoskeptics Treat Science As A Religion (even though they say they don't)

Now let me clarify something. Critics of pseudoskeptics have accused them of believing in Scientism - the belief that science is to be treated as an authority with all the answers and taken on faith, just like a religion is. In response, pseudoskeptics claim that science is a process of independent peer review and replication and therefore not a religion.

So then, is science a religion, you might ask? Well, yes and no. Technically, science is not a religion. It is a tool and methodology of obtaining logical conclusions through evidence and inquiry. As such, it is not an entity that holds positions or viewpoints, like people do. Therefore, science is not pro or anti-paranormal, anymore than a pencil, computer program or mathematical formula is.

However, the scientific establishment is another matter, because it involves people, politics, power, money, institutions and vested interests. And as such, politics, corruption, control, censorship and suppression are naturally a part of it. Realists know and understand this. But for some reason pseudoskeptics don't.

The key fallacy that pseudoskeptics make is lumping the scientific process and the scientific establishment into one, and assuming that they are one and the same. That is the major fallacy of the organized skepticism movement, which consists of the JREF, CSICOP and Michael Shermer type crowd.

In doing so, they falsely assume that the science and medical establishment is objective and unbiased, and free of politics, corruption, control, censorship and suppression. That's where their major mistake is. And as such, they deem the science and medical establishment as an unassailable authority that is not to be questioned or challenged. In that sense, they treat science as a religion. So even though they claim that science is not a religion, they still treat it as such, by holding the views of the science establishment as an unquestionable authority.

http://911debunkers.blogspot.com.au/2012/05/scientism-why-pseudoskeptics-treat.html

Of course the next question to be asked about these "skeptics" is where do these sort of people come from ? Some of them would be genuinely misguided while others, I bet, are the result of the CIA's Robertson Panel or like-minded programs. I come to this conclusion because some of the skeptic arguments are so bad that one would have to be completely delusional to accept them or that the highly intelligent people pushing such positions are attempting to deliberately deceive the public.

UN Says Radiation Levels are Safe, Despite Empirical Data on Fukushima

First the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) claimed that their research confirms Japanese milk and vegetables are safe for human consumption. They reported that radiation levels are below cancer-causing levels.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has also assessed the problem of radioactive levels at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant.

This concept, known as the Linear No-Threshold Dose hypothesis (LNT), was accepted in 1959 as the global regulating philosophy and remains entrenched despite all scientific evidence to the contrary
.
http://www.activistpost.com/2012/05/un-says-radiation-levels-are-safe.html

The problem with the radiation coming from Fukushima is that hot particles entering the body DO cause damage over the long term. The most important issue at the moment, something still not addressed, is the need to entomb the Daiichi reactors so that no more material can spread into the atmosphere. The reactor cores are still fissioning and releasing harmful products, some of which will be with us for hundreds of years - such as Caesium 137 that has a half life of 30 years.

Only Bombing Iran Into Submission Will Satisfy Israel

In the eyes of Israel's warmongering ruling elite, Iran is damned if they do and damned if they don't. If Iran refuses to cooperate by denying inspectors access to nuclear facilities, they are lambasted for their secrecy and accused of trying to conceal dangerous weapons programmes - but when they do allow inspectors into the country, they are accused of being manipulative and deceptive!

The Catch-22 situation forced upon Iran exposes Israel's commitment to ruthless hostility towards their regional enemy, no matter how illogical the justification for such an aggressive and dangerous policy.

Their brazenly arrogant demands of other world powers reveal Israel's belief that it is a law unto itself, above and beyond censure or criticism - an attitude only encouraged by the West's consistently pathetic pandering to the Jewish state, despite Israel's numerous acts of aggression and unpunished breaches of international law.

Barak's statement also shows Israel's supreme hypocrisy. Whilst there is no credible evidence whatsoever that Iran is trying to build a nuclear bomb - and under the terms of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty they are allowed to enrich uranium for domestic energy purposes - Israel has covertly developed a huge stockpile of nuclear weapons, despite refusing to sign the Treaty and openly maintaining a policy of "nuclear ambiguity".

As we have previously detailed, Israel is believed to possess a vast arsenal of nuclear weapons, including: 400 atomic and hydrogen nukes, with thermonuclear weapons in the megaton range; a range of systems including neutron bombs, tactical nukes, and suitcase nukes; delivery systems including Jericho intercontinental ballistic missiles with a range of 11,500 km, and offshore second-strike capabilities using submarine launched nuclear-capable cruise missiles.

Israel's argument that Iran would attack them if they had a nuclear bomb seems unlikely in the extreme. Any attack on Israel would make absolutely no sense strategically and would surely see Iran literally "wiped off the map" - indeed, Israel's alarming "Samson Option" explicitly states that a strike on the country would result in massive nuclear retaliation

RECAP: Sibel Edmonds: US Government Needs to Keep the Fear Factor Alive by Creating Terror Threats

The Obama administration has the worst track record when it comes to prosecuting whistleblowers. Obama once claimed he'd work hard to have a transparent government, but many have faced retaliation for revealing controversial government information. Sibel Edmonds, who is a whistleblower, waited 340 days for FBI clearance of her memoir but finally released it on her own. Edmonds, founder of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition, joins us for more.



-------------------------------------------------
Edmonds talks about her experience with the controlled mass media, the cover-up of pre-911 intelligence and also general corruption in Government departments - with individuals inside the USA working with foreign nations (presumably Turkey and Israel) to the detriment of US National Security.

Regarding Bin Laden, and Bin Laden related groups, according to Sibel, the CIA and State Department had been working with them throughout the 90s, right up to, and AFTER the attacks of September 11. In other interviews she has also said that the US had intimate ties to Osama Bin Laden right up to the day of the attacks.

This is the real world we live in. The billion dollar budgeted intelligence agencies DO have tentacles everywhere, but they don't talk about it. They know what's going on and manipulate things to serve certain geopolitical interests. This sort of thing has been going on for a long time. And >> if these interests find themselves with no serious threats, or rather no military excuse to intervene in foreign countries, like at the end of the Cold War, then they lose a measure of their ability to control events - hence the War on Terror.

This is a great clip.

And note: when asked about bombshell information, Sibel states she did not release information that she knew was classified. There is obviously more story to tell. However, what we do know is damning enough.

Will Ron Paul Force Mitt Romney Into a Debate?

After Ron Paul spoke in Sparks, Nevada, earlier this month, observers took note of Mitt Romney supporters crumpling up their Romney signs and vowing to vote for Paul. It was the first time many Republican activists had ever heard Paul speak outside of the several minutes of sound bites allotted to him during televised debates.

The Paul campaign's recent announcement that he has doubled down on its delegate strategy has made it increasingly likely that Ron Paul will appear at an increased number of state conventions this year. Republican state conventions, such as Minnesota's this past weekend, are increasingly making their way onto Paul's busy speaking schedule.

The Sleeping Dragon: Fukushima Forever

In the first week after Fukushima, this physicist genius called for a massive international effort to bury the entire nuclear complex to protect as much as possible the human race from nuclear contamination.

Dr. Michio Kaku said early on that “Tepco utility people are outclassed and overwhelmed and should be removed from their positions and that we would see increases in leukemias and thyroid cancers from the massive amounts of radioactive iodine being released.”

Now he is weighing in with the threat from the spent-fuel pool in reactor building No. 4 in focus saying, “People don’t realize that the Fukushima reactor is on a knife’s edge; it’s near the tipping point. A small earthquake, another pipe break, another explosion could tip it over and we could have a disaster much worse, many times worse than Chernobyl. It’s like a sleeping dragon.”

Kaku explains that just in the last few weeks it has been reported to some degree that Units 2, 3 and 4 have been shown to be in a very dire situation. Unit 2 is completely liquefied, something that’s never been seen in the history of nuclear power, a 100% liquefaction of a uranium core.

Unit 4, on the other hand, has an even worse problem as it’s a spent-fuel pond that is totally uncovered because of a hydrogen explosion that took place last year.

The issue of planetary contamination is more important than the economic crisis the media is covering, which threatens to go into its own kind of meltdown.

Economies grow and collapse as civilizations rise and fall. There have always been the good times when life is sweet and the bad times when human savages must have their wars or when Nature decides to have her way with us or when the elite bankers’ monetary games run through their cycles.

What are our chances of this nuclear nightmare going away?

Things are so bad at Fukushima that, “Humans cannot come close to certain parts of the reactor site and even robots get fried. They’re delicate machinery; their micro-circuitry cannot withstand the intense bombardment of radiation,” reports Kaku.

And yesterday, Sunday the 20th, we read:

6.0 magnitude earthquake strikes off the coast of Japan.

http://theintelhub.com/2012/05/21/fukushima-forever/

Fukushima is already many times worse than Chernobyl.

Bayer CropScience and Bee Deaths

At first it was believed that only honeybees were affected, but then bumblebee populations began to decline. The crisis was eventually given a name: Colony Collapse Disorder or CCD.

CCD is Not a Disease

There were initially several theories about the cause of CCDE, including Varroa mites, cell phone radiation and a virus similar to AIDS. However, it has now been proven that the bee deaths are actually the result of poisoning from two known pesticides called clothianidin and imidacloprid –manufactured by Bayer.

The trade name for clothianidin is Poncho. The trade names for imidacloprid include Gaucho, Admire, Advantage, Merit, Amigo, Premise, Prothor, and Winner.

Why are They Used?

One of our most important crops is corn. But corn has an enemy called diabrotica vergifera vergifera – also known as the “root worm.” [right] It burrows into the roots of the corn plant and causes the plant to wither and eventually die.
Major infestations can wipe-out entire crops.

As bad as it sounds, the root worm problem can actually be addressed quite easily with the practice of crop rotation. The larvae must feed on corn roots to survive and cannot travel more than 10 to 20 inches if hatched in a field rotated out of corn. However, rotating a field out of corn can result in lower farm profitability if there is less demand for the alternate crop. So in 2003, Bayer Pharmaceutical introduced two pesticides, classified as neonicotinoids, to combat root worms and capitalize on increased farm profits. These pesticides are now two of Bayer’s top agricultural products – even though profits are at the expense of a keystone species.

Corn seed is coated with Bayer’s pesticides by means of an adhesive developed by another industry giant: Monsanto. Despite studies which showed these pesticides are highly toxic to bees, their use was justified with the reasoning that the corn seed to which they were applied would be buried in the soil where it would presumably be harmless to other creatures. This was a grave mistake.

The first clue that Colony Collapse Disorder was the result of poisoning, similar to the DDT bird kill-off decades ago, was when clothianidin was used on corn crops in Germany’s state of Baden-Wurttemberg. In July of 2007, the German crop was infested with root worms.
The German government ordered that every possible method should be used to eradicate this pest, including the use of neonicotinoids. Shortly after the seeds were planted, in May of 2008, some 330-million bees abruptly died. The global phenomenon has continued to this day, resulting in millions of dead colonies… billions of dead bees.

An investigation revealed that the seed coating did not stay in the soil but was introduced to the air (and the rest of the plant) by simple abrasion – the rubbing together of seeds – as they are stored, moved and planted. The German government quickly banned this pesticide, gave compensation to the farmers and issued a strong warning against using this chemical in agriculture. According to the German Federal Agriculture Institute, “It can unequivocally be concluded that poisoning of the bees is due to the rub-off of the pesticide ingredient clothianidin from corn seeds.”

According to the German Research Center for Cultivated Plants, 29 out of 30 dead bees had been killed, in the 2008 study, by direct contact with clothianidin. Philipp Mimkes, spokesman for the German-based Coalition Against Bayer Dangers, said: “We have been pointing out the risks of neonicotinoids for almost 10 years now. This proves without a doubt that the chemicals can come into contact with bees and kill them. These pesticides shouldn’t be on the market.”

China Is Drowning In Excess Commodities And Canceling Orders Left And Right

The evidence of a China slowdown which is somewhat worse (perhaps much worse) than what the market was expecting continues to pile up.

We have got disastrous macro data for April, more and more companies acknowledging slowdown in the market, pathetic loan growth which brought my speculation that debt deflation is a reality, building up of raw material inventories, and perhaps the acknowledgment from the Premier that perhaps supporting growth is now a higher priority than it was previously.

The latest comes from a report from the Financial Times that Chinese commodities buyers are asking for deferral of delivery of raw materials, or occasionally decide simply to default on the contracts

'Reporter's Privilege' Under Fire From Obama Administration Amid Broader War On Leaks

The Obama administration Friday morning continued its headlong attack on the right of reporters to protect their confidential sources in leak investigations.

Before a panel of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, a Department of Justice lawyer argued that New York Times reporter James Risen should be forced to testify in the trial of former CIA agent Jeffrey Sterling, who is charged with leaking classified information to Risen about a botched plot against the Iranian government.

Rather than arguing the specifics of the case, DOJ appellate lawyer Robert A. Parker asserted that there is no reporter's privilege when a journalist receives an illegal leak of national security secrets.

When Judge Robert Gregory asked Parker to explain why the public's interest in a free press was outweighed by the specific circumstances in this case, Parker declined

RECAP: Lockerbie Bombing: Megrahi was Framed

[Reposted because of the death of Al Megrahi from cancer.]

The trial of the “Lockerbie bomber” was worse than a travesty of justice. Evidence that never came to court proves his innocence

The hysteria over the release of the so-called Lockerbie bomber reveals much about the political and media class on both sides of the Atlantic, especially Britain. From Gordon Brown's "repulsion" to Barack Obama's "outrage", the theatre of lies and hypocrisy is dutifully attended by those
who call themselves journalists.
-------------------------------------------------
No one in authority has had the guts to state the truth about the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 above the Scottish village of Lockerbie on 21 December 1988, in which 270 people were killed. The governments in England and Scotland in effect blackmailed Megrahi into dropping his appeal as a condition of his immediate release. Of course there were oil and arms deals under way with Libya; but had Megrahi proceeded with his appeal, some 600 pages of new and deliberately suppressed evidence would have set the seal on his innocence and given us more than a glimpse of how and why he was stitched up for the benefit of "strategic interests".

“The endgame came down to damage limitation," said the former CIA officer Robert Baer, who took part in the original investigation, "because the evidence amassed by [Megrahi's] appeal is explosive and extremely damning to the system of justice." New witnesses would show that it was impossible for Megrahi to have bought clothes that were found in the wreckage of the Pan Am aircraft - he was convicted on the word of a Maltese shopowner who claimed to have sold him the clothes, then gave a false description of him in 19 separate statements and even failed to recognise him in the courtroom.

The new evidence would have shown that a fragment of a circuit board and bomb timer, "discovered" in the Scottish countryside and said to have been in Megrahi's suitcase, was probably a plant. A forensic scientist found no trace of an explosion on it. The new evidence would demonstrate the impossibility of the bomb beginning its journey in Malta before it was "transferred" through two airports undetected to Flight 103.
http://www.newstatesman.com/international-politics/2009/09/pilger-megrahi-justice

It is difficult to say who exactly carried out the bombing. Mr Megrahi appears completely innocent of the crime. Other suspected groups include those from Iran, Syria or even the CIA.

WTC 7 Petition to the National Institute for Standards and Technology, U.S. Congress, and President Obama

Revise the U.S. government final report on the collapse of Building 7

Building 7 of the World Trade Center, a 47 story building, contained offices of the CIA, the Secret Service, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) several financial institutions and then-Mayor Giuliani's Office of Emergency Management.

Despite never being hit by an airplane, Building 7 was reduced to a pile of rubble in about 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on September 11, 2001. After 9/11 this fact has been widely covered up by the U.S. mass media and was even omitted from the 9/11 Commission Report.

NIST, the National Institute for Standards and Technology (a U.S. government agency) was authorized by Congress to determine “why and how WTC 7 collapsed.” NIST produced a preliminary draft of their final report in August, 2008 omitting the fact that Building 7 fell at free fall acceleration for part of its descent. After a physicist challenged NIST on this point the final report, in November 2008 admitted free fall acceleration for 105' or 2.5 seconds.

NIST wrote, “A more detailed analysis of the descent of the north face found . . . (2) a freefall descent over approximately eight stories at gravitational acceleration for approximately 2.25 s . . . .” (Final Report on the Collapse of World Trade Center Building 7, NIST NCSTAR 1A, page 48)

However NIST claimed that this was consistent with their own fire based collapse theory which alleged that the entire collapse began because column 79 became laterally unsupported and buckled due to heat. NIST has refused to disclose their entire computer model and this column 79 theory was not based on any hard evidence.

NIST has already admitted the scientific fact of free fall acceleration in Building 7. This is remarkable! Now we ask that NIST tell what this means: that the entire building structure below for at least eight floors was removed just as Building 7 began to fall. Does this not imply use of explosives? We petition for a response.

This may give a very different understanding of what really happened on 9/11.
The reason this matters in 2012 is that the U.S. continues to kill countless people in the so called war on terror all based on the assumption that the World Trade Center attacks were done solely by Muslims. Muslims would not have had the access to Building 7, the equipment, the knowledge of the sophisticated process of controlled demolition nor the time to arrange it.

I want peace for myself, my family and friends and millions of people I don’t even know
.
http://www.avaaz.org/en/petition/Revise_the_US_government_final_report_on_the_collapse_of_Building_7/?tta

Story thanks to the great Debunking the Debunkers blog!

Remember, we will NEVER see an end to the War on Terror if it is our own side perpetuating the conflict. If all the terrorists are locked up or killed we will still suffer attacks because corrupt elements on our side want perpetual war to serve their own interests.

Never Forget That Bradley Manning, Not Gay Marriage, Is The Issue

In the week Barack Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, he ordered bombing attacks on Yemen, killing a reported 63 people, 28 of them children. When Obama recently announced he supported same-sex marriage, American planes had not long blown 14 Afghan civilians to bits. In both cases, the mass murder was barely news. What mattered were the cynical vacuities of a political celebrity, the product of a zeitgeist driven by the forces of consumerism and the media with the aim of diverting the struggle for social and economic justice.
-----------------------------------------------
The width of a cigarette paper separates the Democratic and Republican parties on economic and foreign policies. Both represent the super rich and the impoverishment of a nation from which trillions of tax dollars have been transferred to a permanent war industry and banks that are little more than criminal enterprises. Obama is as reactionary and violent as George W. Bush, and in some ways he is worse. His personal speciality is the use of Hellfire missile-armed drones against defenceless people. Under cover of a partial withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, he has sent US special forces to 120 countries where death squads are trained. He has revived the old cold war on two fronts: against China in Asia and with a "shield" of missiles aimed at Russia. The first black president has presided over the incarceration and surveillance of greater numbers of black people than were enslaved in 1850. He has prosecuted more whistleblowers - truth-tellers - than any of his predecessors. His vice-president, Joe Biden, a zealous warmonger, has called WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange a "hi-tech terrorist". Biden has also converted to the cause of gay marriage.

One of America's true heroes is the gay soldier Bradley Manning, the whistleblower alleged to have provided WikiLeaks with the epic evidence of American carnage in Iraq and Afghanistan. It was the Obama administration that smeared his homosexuality as weird, and it was Obama himself who declared a man convicted of no crime to be guilty.

Who among the fawners and luvvies at Clooney's Hollywood moneyfest shouted, "Remember Bradley Manning"? To my knowledge, no prominent spokesperson for gay rights has spoken against Obama's and Biden's hypocrisy in claiming to support same-sex marriage while terrorising a gay man whose courage should be an inspiration to all, regardless of sexual preference.

Obama's historic achievement as president of the United States has been to silence the anti-war and social justice movement associated with the Democratic Party. Such deference to an extremism disguised by and embodied in a clever, amoral operator, betrays the rich tradition of popular protest in the US
.
http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article31355.htm

Pilger is not happy with the deathly silence from the left regarding the unnecessary wars - ever since Obama has been elected. It is difficult not to be cynical while people are being killed left, right and centre.

Think about it. No prosecutions for torture. No prosecutions for illegal wars. No prosecutions for financial fraud. No prosecutions for the Gulf Oil spill (Obama even made an announcement saying the Gulf was safe). Yet we see more wars, prosecutions against whistleblowers, the continuation of signing executive statements, opaque government, the hiring of insiders and lobbyists, a continuation of the Patriot Act, the enabling of the draconian NDAA Laws etc etc.

HIDDEN IN PLAIN VIEW: FDA-APPROVED DRUGS KILL A MILLION AMERICANS PER DECADE

The discovery of a page, on the FDA’s own website, proves the FDA is fully aware that:

the drugs it certifies as safe have been killing Americans, at the rate of 100,000 per year.

The FDA website page is currently available under the heading, “Why Learn About Adverse Drug Reactions,” and it can be Googled. (Click here to go directly to the FDA page.)
-------------------------------------
The FDA website page also states there are 2 million serious adverse reactions (ADRs) from the ingestion of medical drugs, annually, in the US. When the FDA says “serious,” they aren’t talking about headaches or slight dizziness or temporary nausea. “Serious” means stroke, heart attack, neurological damage; destruction of that magnitude. Therefore, per decade, that adds up to 20 million ADRs. 20 million
.
http://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2012/05/17/hidden-in-plain-view-fda-murder/

I'd like to see more information on why there are so many deaths and adverse reactions. Is it from misuse, overuse or from "normal" use of these drugs ? The number of people significantly impacted here seems very high.

This what is actually posted on the FDA website:

Why Learn about Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR)?

Institute of Medicine, National Academy Press, 2000
Lazarou J et al. JAMA 1998;279(15):1200–1205

Over 2 MILLION serious ADRs yearly
#100,000 DEATHS yearly
#ADRs 4th leading cause of death ahead of pulmonary disease, diabetes, AIDS, pneumonia, accidents and automobile deaths
#Ambulatory patients ADR rate—unknown

The Case of the Missing Terrorists

By Paul Craig Roberts at Opinion Maker

If there were any real terrorists, Jose Rodriguez would be dead.

Who is Jose Rodriguez? He is the criminal who ran the CIA torture program. Most of his victims were not terrorists or even insurgents. Most were hapless individuals kidnapped by warlords and sold to the Americans as “terrorists” for the bounty paid.

If Rodriguez’s identity was previously a secret, it is no more. He has been on CBS “60 Minutes” taking credit for torturing Muslims and using the information allegedly gained to kill leaders of al Qaeda. If terrorists were really the problem that Homeland Security, the FBI and CIA claim, Rodriguez’s name would be a struck through item on the terrorists’ hit list. He would be in his grave.

So, also, would be John Yoo, who wrote the Justice (sic) Department memos giving the green light to torture, despite US and International laws prohibiting torture. Apparently, Yoo, a professor at the Boalt School of Law at the University of California, Berkeley, was ignorant of US and international law. And so was the US Department of Justice (sic).

Notice that Rodriguez, “The Torturer of the Muslims,” does’t have to hide. He can go on national television, reveal his identity, and revel in his success in torturing and murdering Muslims. Rodriguez has no Secret Service protection and would be an easy mark for assassination by terrorists so capable as to have, allegedly, pulled off 9/11.

Another easy mark for assassination would be former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, who staffed up the Pentagon with neoconservative warmongers such as Paul Wolfowitz and Douglas Feith, who in turn concocted the false information used to justify the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan. Rumsfeld himself declared members of al Qaeda to be the most vicious and dangerous killers on earth. Yet Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Feith, Richard Perle, together with neoconservative media propagandists, such as William Kristol and Max Boot, have been walking around safe for years unmolested by terrorists seeking revenge or bringing retribution to those responsible for as many as 1,000,000 Muslim deaths.

Condi Rice, Colin Powell, who delivered the Speech of Lies to the UN inaugurating the invasion of Iraq, and Dick Cheney, whose minimal Secret Service protection could not withstand a determined assassination attempt, also enjoy lives unmolested by terrorists.

Remember the deck of cards that the Bush regime had with Iraqi faces? If terrorists had a similar deck, all of those named above would be “high value targets.” Yet, there has not been a single attempt on any one of them.

Strange, isn’t it, that none of the above are faced with a terrorist threat. Yet, the tough, macho Navy Seals who allegedly killed Osama bin Laden must have their identity kept hidden so that they don’t become terrorist targets. These American supermen, highly trained killers themselves, don’t dare show their faces, but Rodriguez, Rumsfeld, and Condi Rice can walk around unmolested. Indeed, the Seals’ lives are so endangered that President Obama gave up the enormous public relations political benefit of a White House ceremony with the heroic Navy Seals. Very strange behavior for a politician. A couple of weeks after the alleged bin Laden killing, the Seals unit, or most of it, was wiped out in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan.

If you were a Muslim terrorist seeking retribution for Washington’s crimes, would you try to smuggle aboard an airliner a bomb in your underwear or shoe in order to blow up people whose only responsibility for Washington’s war against Muslims is that they fell for Washington’s propaganda?

Before some reader accuses me of giving terrorists ideas, ask yourself if you really think people so clever as to have allegedly planned and carried out 9/11 couldn’t think of such simple tactics, plots that could be carried out without having to defeat security or kill innocent people? My point isn’t what terrorists, if they exist, should do. The point is that the absence of easy-to-do acts of terrorism suggests that the terrorist threat is more hype than reality. Yet, we have an expensive, intrusive security apparatus that seems to have no real function except to exercise power over American citizens.

In place of real terrorists carrying out easy plots, we have “terrorist” plots dreamed up by FBI and CIA agents, who then recruit some hapless or demented dupes, bribing them with money and heroic images of themselves, and supplying them with the plot and fake explosives. These are called “sting operations,” but they are not. They are orchestrations by our own security agencies that produce fake terrorist plots that are then “foiled” by the security agencies that hatched the plots. Washington’s announcement is always: “The public was never in danger.” Some terrorist plot! We have never been endangered by one, but the airports have been on orange alert for 11.5 years.

The federal judiciary and brainwashed juries actually treat these concocted plots as real threats to American security despite the government’s announcements that the public was never in danger.

The announcements of the “foiled” plots keep the brainwashed public docile and amenable to intrusive searches, warrantless spying, the growth of an unaccountable police state, and endless wars.

The “War on Terror” is a hoax, one that has been successfully used to destroy the US Constitution and to complete the transformation of law from a shield of the people into a weapon in the hands of the state. By destroying habeas corpus, due process, and the presumption of innocence, the “War on Terror” has destroyed our security.

According to a 2007 New Yorker article by Seymour Hersh, "The Redirection," the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia had been assembling a region-wide army of extremist-mercenaries to battle Hezbollah in Lebanon, destabilize and overthrow Syria, and create a united front against Iran.

The forces recruited for this effort would come from the ranks of the CIA-created "Arab foreign legion," Al Qaeda itself - extremist groups fresh back from fighting US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, including listed terror organizations like the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) from Libya.

Hersh's 2007 report exposed the groundwork for the very violence unfolding in Syria today, and now Lebanon. Forces to destabilize Syria were primarily to be staged in northern Lebanon, as explained in the article, and indeed the heaviest fighting over the last year has been seen in the Syrian city of Homs, just across the border from northern Lebanon. Syria's President Bashar al-Assad and his government have been, since the beginning of the violence, attempting to illustrate just this - explained in detail in 2007, and demonstratively being carried out today, with responsibility for deadly bombings being claimed by terrorists, the Pentagon itself admitting Al Qaeda is present in Syria, and reports indicating foreign fighters, weapons, and cash are flowing over Syria's borders.

Lebanon's Turn?

Now, the very staging ground in northern Lebanon being used to destabilize neighboring Syria has erupted into violence. Not by Syrian troops crossing the border, but by indigenous Lebanese factions facing off against each other. News is trickling out slowly and the Western media appears intent on keeping the violence as nebulous and confused as possible, but initial information indicates that extremist groups backed by the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia are fighting factions connected to Hezbollah. Extremist leaders across the region are attempting to frame the violence as "Sunni verses Shi'ia," a ploy Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah warned against back in 2007
-----------------------------------------------------
Far from genuine sectarian violence, it was planned since 2007, to use terrorist proxies in a battle stretching from Lebanon to Iran with Arab nations from North Africa to the Middle East aiding the effort, dominated by freshly installed US proxies (Tunisia & Libya) and the Muslim Brotherhood, stated in Hersh's 2007 article to be wards of the West.

Violence has raged for nearly a week, in and around Lebanon's northern port city of Tripoli

There is no longer any Cold War. By creating an extremist filled Middle East the West (and Israel) can create a situation of low intensity conflict designed to justify defense and intelligence spending for decades.

If you were a strategic planner in the CIA, looking after the corporate and hegemonic goals of the USA, there is no good reason, other than people getting killed, NOT to start such wars. Plus conflict such as this keeps out geopolitical rivals such as Russia and China (while US Saudi relations continue) - look for a similar plan of action to be promoted in Africa.

Greece on Fire: 'Disaster Looms, with or without Euro'

Last week was a truly hectic one for the EU, with violent anti-austerity demos and political deadlock again casting doubts over the future of the euro. In Spain, as many as hundreds of thousands marched in nationwide protest. They chanted slogans and waved banners demanding an end to cuts and painful austerity. In Italy, violent anti-austerity clashes erupted in the city of Naples, after yet another suicide apparently caused by an aggressive government taxation program. But above all that, is the political turmoil in Greece

Breaking News: Ron Paul has NOT Suspended His Campaign

The Paul campaign is focussing its resources on the caucus states rather than the primary states. The effort continues. You can still go out and vote for Congressman Paul!



Remember, the choice is pretty stark, you can either vote for Mitt, who will continue the wars, and backs oppressive Laws such as the Patriot Act plus the NDAA (where YOU can be locked up indefinitely with no trial), or you can get out and vote for Ron Paul who is against all these things.

Ron Paul Statement on Campaign Going Forward:

We will continue to take leadership positions, win delegates, and carry a strong message to the Republican National Convention that Liberty is the way of the future.” – Ron Paul

Republican Delegates Can Ignore Any “Committment” to Vote for Mitt Romney, and Can Instead Vote for Ron Paul If They Want

ALL Republican Delegates Can Vote Their Conscience

We noted last week that it’s still possible for Ron Paul to score an upset win over Mitt Romney.

Indeed, the nonpartisan Center for Voting and Democracy (CVAD) reported last December that the the legal counsel for the Republican National Convention said delegates can vote for whoever they want at the National Convention:

As set out in the Rules of the Republican Party, delegates have the ability to vote according to the delegates’ preference, even if that is contrary to the outcome of each state’s primary. According to one source, the legal counsel for the Republican National Convention in 2008 stated: “[The] RNC does not recognize a state’s binding of national delegates, but considers each delegate a free agent who can vote for whoever they choose.” Thus, if a delegate were to challenge his or her ability to vote as a free agent, he or she would have grounds under Rule 38.

http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/05/republican-delegates-can-ignore-their-committment-to-vote-for-mitt-romney-and-can-instead-vote-for-ron-paul.html

I just hope all the Ron Paul delegates remember Stalin - "It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything."

There needs to be a transparent voting system at the Convention or the game will be over, at least in terms of electing Ron Paul as the GOP candidate.

Malaysia puts Bush, Cheney on 'Trial' for War Crimes

For the second time, the Kuala Lumpur Foundation to Criminalize War is putting a former head of state and their administration before a peoples court to face charges of Torture and War Crimes.



This is unfinished business. Prosecutions are needed against these criminals.

The History of Government Sponsored Terror

Alex runs down the history of terror plots that turn out to be provocateured or outright staged.



Jones is essentially correct about state sponsorship behind terror attacks. The documentary clip incuded in this video, from 12:00 onwards, is a good summary.

Will Mitt Romney Be Invalidated?

Rule number 11:

"(a)
The Republican National Committee shall
not, without the prior written and filed approval of all
members of the Republican National Committee from
the state involved, contribute money or in-kind aid to
any candidate for any public or party office except the
nominee of the Republican Party or a candidate who is
unopposed in the Republican primary after the filing
deadline for that office."

But what everyone seems to be overlooking and is the most important part of the law is under part (b).

"(b)
... No person nominated in violation of
this rule shall be recognized by the Republican National
Committee as the nominee of the Republican Party
from that state."

Meaning any state where Romney and the RNC have worked together, without the written and filed prior approval of ALL GOP State Committee members of that state, IS INVALID. He cannot be recognized by the RNC as the nominee of those states.

Ron Paul Update

Some words from Ron Paul on recent caucuses and conventions, the dirty tricks employed to try and rob him of delegates, and the mainstream media blackout of him. He is in need of $650,000 in the next two weeks. He is relying on small donations from supporters to get this money. Support democracy and liberty with a donation.



Ron Paul is popular. Help the fight. Donate whatever you can to give this guy a chance to stick it to the establishment. A shot at the title is gotta be worth at least 10 or 20 bucks - at least !

Sibel Edmonds: US Government Needs to Keep the Fear Factor Alive by Creating Terror Threats

The Obama administration has the worst track record when it comes to prosecuting whistleblowers. Obama once claimed he'd work hard to have a transparent government, but many have faced retaliation for revealing controversial government information. Sibel Edmonds, who is a whistleblower, waited 340 days for FBI clearance of her memoir but finally released it on her own. Edmonds, founder of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition, joins us for more.



Edmonds covers her experience with the controlled mass media, the cover-up of pre-911 intelligence and also general corruption in Government departments - with individuals inside the USA working with foreign nations (presumably Turkey and Israel) to the detriment of US National Security.

Regarding Bin Laden, and Bin Laden related groups, according to Sibel the CIA and State Department had been working with them throughout the 90s, up to, and AFTER the attacks of September 11. In other interviews she has said that the US had intimate ties to Bin Laden right up to the day of the attacks.

This is the real world we live in. The billion dollar budgeted intelligence agencies DO have tentacles everywhere, but they don't talk about it. They know what's going on but if they find themselves with no threats, like at the end of the Cold War, they lose their importance and relevance.

This is a great clip.

And note: when asked about bombshell information, Sibel states she did not release information that she knew was classified. There is obviously more story to tell. However, what we do know is damning enough.

Why No Prosecutions on Wall Street? Goldman, JPMorgan, Citi, Wells Fargo, Deutsche Bank, are All Clients of Holder’s Law Firm.

Yeah, that might have something to do with it. Maybe.

In the wake of the financial disaster in 2008, which is still unfolding in case you haven’t noticed, federal prosecutions of financial crimes are at a 20 year low. That is a remarkable stat.

Could the fact that financial firms dumped piles of $100 bills on Obama’s head in 2008 have anything to do with the lack of prosecutions? No way. Attorney General Eric Holder says simply that though Wall Street may have acted stupidly, he just can’t seem to find any fraud.

And that all the big banks are clients of Holder’s law firm—a law firm that at least partially specializes in financial crime defense? That has nothing to do with the lack of prosecutions either.
There are just too many pot dispensaries in California to bust, and Mexican drug lords to arm, for the American people to expect the enforcement of financial crimes from their attorney general

VIOXX and Merck & the Pharmaceutical Industry

Documentary [a short clip] on how Merck hid the fact that Vioxx was dangerous to the public



This video helps explain HOW it is that raw science does not always drive "knowledge" in the medical profession. That drug treatment knowledge is under the strong influence of large money making corporations.

The lesson is clear. Money buys influence - often targeting those in authoritative positions. Subsequently, medical professionals and the public in general, become convinced by what the authority figures tell them. This situation can be true with ANY important institution in which billions of dollars are at stake.

Activist Interrupts War Propaganda ‘What About the Innocent People WE Are Killing With OUR Drone Strikes?’

Peace Activist Medea Benjamin of Code Pink interrupted White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan during a press conference about the progress of the war in Afghanistan last week.

When Brennan was espousing the notion that Al Qaeda’s image is badly tarnished around the Muslim world because he claims they’re killing mostly “innocent men, women and children,” Benjamin stood up and challenged him.

Benjamin shouted “What about the hundreds of innocent people we are killing with our drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia?”
