Cover-Up Of West Coast Radiation Exposed — Alex Jones

By Susan Duclos


Many of us have been following the massively high levels of radiation on the West Coast of America, following the earthquake and tsunami of 2011, which crippled the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan, leading to multiple meltdowns and hundreds of tons of radioactive contaminated water being dumped into the Pacific Ocean, daily.

 In the video below, Alex Jones details efforts made to force the hand of the US government in monitoring these levels, leading to an arbitrary change into what was named as officially "safe" levels, and the report below highlights the cover up that has been underway, not just by the Japanese government but by governments along the West Coast as well.

West Coast Residents: Dead Men Walking From Fukushima Radiation (Video)

By Susan Duclos

"When the West Coast finally understands the danger they are in, there will be a 'panic exodus' that's unimaginable! "- Via Steve Quayle

As I say in the video, by then it will be too late, it probably already is.

The media almost complacently reports yet another 100 tons of radioactive water has leaked from a holding tank at Fukushima, this is in addition to the hundreds of tons pouring into the Pacific ocean daily.

In the first video below I attempt to show the undeniable and obvious evidence that residents along the West Coast are nothing more than dead men walking at this point and the governments of those areas, along with the media are complicit in their deaths by refusing to inform the public of the dangers, the radiation levels and the truth of what is happening.

Below are the headlined stories from ENENews recently that I use in the video:

Study: Fukushima airborne plumes “caused significant deposition of radioactivity over North America” — Especially for West Coast and eastern U.S. — Around 13% of all radioactive iodine released into atmosphere was deposited over USA and Canada

Study: Daily release from Fukushima of 100+ Quadrillion becquerels of cesium-137 early on in crisis “seems reasonable” — Chernobyl total release was ~70 Quadrillion Bq of cs-137

Gov’t map shows highest radiation levels were directly over Salt Lake City, Utah and surrounding area on March 20, 2011 — Most intense concentration of anywhere in world, including Fukushima (GRAPHIC)

TV: Bald eagles dying at rate “much higher than normal” and it’s not from West Nile virus as previously claimed — Now around 60 dead in Utah since December — “We feel helpless, we don’t have a lot of answers” (VIDEO)

The headlines alone tell the story, but read each, learn it, understand it because when the next little tidbit is quoted below from Global Research on January 27, 2014, it should be a hard smack in the face to understand the level of duplicity coming from our very own government.

What we don’t really know is how fast and how much is being transportedacross the Pacific. Yes, models tell us it will be safe, yes the levels we expect off the US West Coast and Canada we expect to be low, but we needmeasurements — especially now, as the plume begins to arrive along the West Coast and will actually increase in concentration over the next 1 to 2 years.Despite public concern about the levels, no public agency in the US is monitoring the activities in the Pacific. 
Without careful, extensive, consistent monitoring, we’ll have no way of knowing how much radiation from Fukushima is reaching our shores, and how it could affect life in the ocean.

Are you freaking kidding me?

Either they are lying and are monitoring but do not wish to officially announce the results because they are so bad people will panic or the US government and those along the West Coast are simply the most incompetent ever seen throughout history.

Video below says in the details that the nuclear radiation detector you will see in the short 16 second video was "filmed at 36k feet on route from Taipei to Seattle, Feb. 12th, 2014."

In the video below we see quite a few DEAD MEN WALKING

ABC: Fuku Radiation Coming – Experts Concerned About Unprecedented Amount Of Migrating Radioactivity (Video)

By Susan Duclos

With every new headline, every Geiger counter reading video, each and every news report, we see more and more people start to wake up to what Alternative Media has relentlessly hammered home which is how dangerous the situation at the devastated Fukushima nuclear plant still is, not only for Japan but for the world. 

ENENews reports on Thursday the Aljazeera is reporting in a four part series, two of which are up on their site and a few quotes from them below.

Key quotes include calling Fukushima "an undefused bomb for decades to come," an "ongoing crisis," a "series of ad hoc strategies designed to deal with the crisis that’s right in front of you," and last but not least that "TEPCO only has “the vaguest idea” of where the [100s of tons of] molten fuel sits."

Below is a special Nightline report titled "Inside Fukushima - Beyond The 'No Go' Zone"

In the video the MSM, namely ABC, still downplays the effects of the radiation that is already in the West Coast by claiming it is "coming" and shows experts concerned about an "unprecedented amount of migrating radioactivity.

Vega: A lot of cesium you just found. [Radiation expert Dr. Shinzo Kimura] says it’s just what he suspected. […] [Levels off Fukushima] are still 1,00 times higher than before the meltdown. And the effects of long-term exposure for people and the environment are still unknown. 
Ken Buesseler, Senior Scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution: We’ve seen Tepco for 2.5 years trying to stop leaks, trying to decontaminate — it’s just not working. […] We’ve never had this much radioactivity released accidentally into the ocean. So now the question is: ‘How long will it take to work through to the land — to the ocean from the power plant, into the sea life, and across the Pacific?

Nuclear Snow! USS Ronald Reagan Sailors Sue TEPCO Over Fukushima Radiation Sickness! (Videos)

By Susan Duclos

The more information that comes out about the crew of the USS Ronald Reagan sailors and their March 2011 relief efforts in the immediate aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the more horrifying we find out their experiences were at the time and ever since as they suffer blindness, cancer and a whole host of other effects from their massive exposure to the radiation plumes from the Fukushima nuclear plant  after the great earthquake and tsunami of 2011.

Almost instantly after being sent to help, they felt a warm gust of the killer death plume, then the radioactive snow started, described as tasting like "like aluminum foil."

Lindsay Cooper, Navy sailor aboard USS Ronald Reagan during 3/11 rescue operation: “I was standing on the flight deck, and we felt this warm gust of air, and, suddenly, it was snowing [...] We joked about it: ‘Hey, it’s radioactive snow! I took pictures and video [...] Japan didn’t want us in port, Korea didn’t want us, Guam turned us away. We floated in the water for two and a half months [until Thailand took them in] “People were s- -tting themselves in the hallways [All the while crew members had been suffering from excruciating diarrhea].”

Their stories are chilling, the effects on their bodies horrifying and their lives destroyed and they deserve compensation for the families they will leave behind. 70 to date are involved in the lawsuit against Fukushima plant operators, TEPCO, after their initial lawsuit was dismissed on jurisdictional grounds.

Cooper was interviewed on EON, listen to the interview below.

Update: West Coast Radiation Not Monitored CA Official Admits (Video)

By Susan Duclos

When we use the RADCON charts from the Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center, who compiles radiation levels in the US from approximately 300 monitoring sites, inevitably some moron points out it isn't an "official" site, therefore waving away the the information, burying their head in the sand.

Newflash - The independent sites are the only ones that are monitoring and releasing the information people need to know so they can take countermeasures against the deadly radiation coming across the Pacific from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan.

Lawrence Bragman, Fairfax City Council Member, Filmed by EON (The Ecological Options Network), Dec. 4, 2013, Via ENENews and in the video below. (Bragman's comments start at approximately the 11 minute mark)

I did correspond with the Disaster Preparedness Office, locally, about any preventative measures — and the response was a resounding nothing.
I renewed my correspondence with them last week. I’ve yet to hear a response. […]
In the meantime, no one is monitoring radiation levels on the West Coast, and that is called for in this resolution. Government is not doing its job.

Then for those that believe the hype that the radioactive water being dumped into the Pacific by Fukushima will be so diluted that it won't harm the West Coast, ignoring the sea life die-offs, the strange and "weird" behavior of the sea life along the west coast on the California coast and Canada, we have the ASR modeling of the radioactive seawater which completely contradicts those "official" assertions.

Via ENENews:

Government officials have stated that they are not sure whether the primary containment vessels have been breached. [...] Officials continue to stress that contaminants will become diluted as currents carry them farther offshore. [...] ASR modeling of the radioactive seawater tells a different story, cause for serious alarm. While these models do not estimate levels of radioactivity in the surrounding waters, the assumption that nearby currents will quickly dilute the radioactive material does not appear to be accurate. [...]

Water radiation soars at Fukushima No. 1

Japan Times
Oct. 18, 2013

Radiation levels in groundwater under Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant are soaring, Tepco said Friday after taking samples from an observation well.

Tepco said 400,000 becquerels per liter of beta ray-emitting substances such as strontium were detected in water sampled Thursday from the well located some 15 meters from a storage tank that leaked about 300 tons of highly radioactive water in August.

The level of becquerels, a record high for water in that well, was up 6,500-fold from the 61 becquerels found Wednesday.

Tepco was planning to pump groundwater up from different wells about 100 meters from the leaky tank for release into the Pacific before the water flows into the damaged reactor buildings and becomes heavily contaminated with radioactive materials.

The Unspoken Crisis of Worldwide Nuclear Radiation

Michel Chossudovsky (Editor)

I-Book No. 3, January 25  2012

Global Research’s Online Interactive I-Book Reader brings together, in the form of chapters, a collection of Global Research feature articles and videos, including debate and analysis, on a broad theme or subject matter. 

In this Interactive Online I-Book we bring to the attention of our readers an important collection of articles, reports and video material on the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe and its impacts (scroll down for the Table of Contents).

To consult our Online Interactive I-Book Reader Series, click here.


The World is at a critical crossroads. The Fukushima disaster in Japan has brought to the forefront the dangers of Worldwide nuclear radiation.

The crisis in Japan has been described as “a nuclear war without a war”. In the words of renowned novelist Haruki Murakami:

“This time no one dropped a bomb on us … We set the stage, we committed the crime with our own hands, we are destroying our own lands, and we are destroying our own lives.”

Nuclear radiation –which threatens life on planet earth– is not front page news in comparison to the most insignificant issues of public concern, including the local level crime scene or the tabloid gossip reports on Hollywood celebrities.

While the long-term repercussions of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster are yet to be fully assessed, they are far more serious than those pertaining to the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in the Ukraine, which resulted in almost one million deaths (New Book Concludes – Chernobyl death toll: 985,000, mostly from cancer Global Research, September 10, 2010, See also Matthew Penney and Mark Selden  The Severity of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster: Comparing Chernobyl and Fukushima, Global Research, May 25, 2011)

Moreover, while all eyes were riveted on the Fukushima Daiichi plant, news coverage both in Japan and internationally failed to fully acknowledge the impacts of a second catastrophe at TEPCO’s (Tokyo Electric Power Co  Inc) Fukushima Daini nuclear power plant.

The shaky political consensus both in Japan, the U.S. and Western Europe is that the crisis at Fukushima has been contained.

The realties, however, are otherwise. Fukushima 3 was leaking unconfirmed amounts of plutonium. According to Dr. Helen Caldicott, “one millionth of a gram of plutonium, if inhaled can cause cancer”.  

An opinion poll in May 2011 confirmed that more than 80 per cent of the Japanese population do not believe the government’s information regarding the nuclear crisis. (quoted in Sherwood Ross, Fukushima: Japan’s Second Nuclear Disaster, Global Research, November 10, 2011)

The Impacts in Japan

The Japanese government has been obliged to acknowledge that “the severity rating of its nuclear crisis … matches that of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster”. In a bitter irony, however, this tacit admission by the Japanese authorities has proven to been part of  the cover-up of a significantly larger catastrophe, resulting in a process of global nuclear radiation and contamination:

“While Chernobyl was an enormous unprecedented disaster, it only occurred at one reactor and rapidly melted down. Once cooled, it was able to be covered with a concrete sarcophagus that was constructed with 100,000 workers. There are a staggering 4400 tons of nuclear fuel rods at Fukushima, which greatly dwarfs the total size of radiation sources at Chernobyl.” ( Extremely High Radiation Levels in Japan: University Researchers Challenge Official Data, Global Research, April 11, 2011)

Fukushima in the wake of the Tsunami, March 2011

Worldwide Contamination

The dumping of highly radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean constitutes a potential trigger to a process of global radioactive contamination. Radioactive elements have not only been detected in the food chain in Japan, radioactive rain water has been recorded in California:

“Hazardous radioactive elements being released in the sea and air around Fukushima accumulate at each step of various food chains (for example, into algae, crustaceans, small fish, bigger fish, then humans; or soil, grass, cow’s meat and milk, then humans). Entering the body, these elements – called internal emitters – migrate to specific organs such as the thyroid, liver, bone, and brain, continuously irradiating small volumes of cells with high doses of alpha, beta and/or gamma radiation, and over many years often induce cancer”. (Helen Caldicott, Fukushima: Nuclear Apologists Play Shoot the Messenger on Radiation, The Age,  April 26, 2011)

While the spread of radiation to the West Coast of North America was casually acknowledged, the early press reports (AP and Reuters) “quoting diplomatic sources” stated that only “tiny amounts of radioactive particles have arrived in California but do not pose a threat to human health.”

“According to the news agencies, the unnamed sources have access to data from a network of measuring stations run by the United Nations’ Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization. …

… Greg Jaczko, chair of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, told White House reporters on Thursday (March 17) that his experts “don’t see any concern from radiation levels that could be harmful here in the United States or any of the U.S. territories”.

The spread of radiation. March 2011

Public Health Disaster. Economic Impacts

What prevails is a well organized camouflage. The public health disaster in Japan, the contamination of water, agricultural land and the food chain, not to mention the broader economic and social implications, have neither been fully acknowledged nor addressed in a comprehensive and meaningful fashion by the Japanese authorities.

Japan as a nation state has been destroyed. Its landmass and territorial waters are contaminated. Part of the country is uninhabitable. High levels of radiation have been recorded in the Tokyo metropolitan area, which has a population of  39 million (2010) (more than the population of Canada, circa 34 million (2010)) There are indications that the food chain is contaminated throughout Japan:

Radioactive cesium exceeding the legal limit was detected in tea made in a factory in Shizuoka City, more than 300 kilometers away from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Shizuoka Prefecture is one of the most famous tea producing areas in Japan.

A tea distributor in Tokyo reported to the prefecture that it detected high levels of radioactivity in the tea shipped from the city. The prefecture ordered the factory to refrain from shipping out the product. After the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, radioactive contamination of tea leaves and processed tea has been found over a wide area around Tokyo. (See 5 More Companies Detect Radiation In Their Tea Above Legal Limits Over 300 KM From Fukushima, June 15, 2011)

Japan’s industrial and manufacturing base is prostrate. Japan is no longer a leading industrial power. The country’s exports have plummeted. The Tokyo government has announced its first trade deficit since 1980.

While the business media has narrowly centered on the impacts of power outages and energy shortages on the pace of productive activity, the broader issue pertaining to the outright radioactive contamination of the country’s infrastructure and industrial base is a “scientific taboo” (i.e the radiation of industrial plants, machinery and equipment, buildings, roads, etc). A report released in January 2012 points to the nuclear contamination of building materials used in the construction industry, in cluding roads and residential buildings throughout Japan.(See  FUKUSHIMA: Radioactive Houses and Roads in Japan. Radioactive Building Materials Sold to over 200 Construction Companies, January 2012)

A “coverup report” by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (May 2011), entitled Economic Impact of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Current Status of Recovery  presents “Economic Recovery” as a fait accompli. It also brushes aside the issue of radiation. The impacts of nuclear radiation on the work force and the country’s industrial base are not mentioned. The report states that the distance between Tokyo -Fukushima Dai-ichi  is of the order of 230 km (about 144 miles) and that the levels of radiation in Tokyo are lower than in Hong Kong and New York City.(Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Impact of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Current Status of Recovery, p.15). This statement is made without corroborating evidence and in overt contradiction with independent radiation readings in Tokyo (se map below). In recent developments, Sohgo Security Services Co. is launching a lucrative “radiation measurement service targeting households in Tokyo and four surrounding prefectures”.

A map of citizens’ measured radiation levels shows radioactivity is distributed in a complex pattern reflecting the mountainous terrain and the shifting winds across a broad area of Japan north of Tokyo which is in the center of the of bottom of the map.”

“Radiation limits begin to be exceeded at just above 0.1 microsieverts/ hour blue. Red is about fifty times the civilian radiation limit at 5.0 microsieverts/hour. Because children are much more sensitive than adults, these results are a great concern for parents of young children in potentially affected areas.

SOURCE: Science Magazine

The fundamental question is whether the vast array of industrial goods and components “Made in Japan” — including hi tech components, machinery, electronics, motor vehicles, etc — and exported Worldwide are contaminated? Were this to be the case, the entire East and Southeast Asian industrial base –which depends heavily on Japanese components and industrial technology– would be affected. The potential impacts on international trade would be farreaching. In this regard, in January, Russian officials confiscated irradiated Japanese automobiles and autoparts in the port of Vladivostok for sale in the Russian Federation. Needless to say, incidents of this nature in a global competitive environment, could lead to the demise of the Japanese automobile industry which is already in crisis.

While most of the automotive industry is in central Japan, Nissan’s engine factory in Iwaki city is 42 km from the Fukushima Daiichi plant. Is the Nissan work force affected? Is the engine plant contaminated? The plant is within about 10 to 20 km of the government’s “evacuation zone” from which some 200,000 people were evacuated (see map below).

Nuclear Energy and Nuclear War

The crisis in Japan has also brought into the open the unspoken relationship between nuclear energy and nuclear war.

Nuclear energy is not a civilian economic activity. It is an appendage of the nuclear weapons industry which is controlled by the so-called defense contractors. The powerful corporate interests behind nuclear energy and nuclear weapons overlap.

In Japan at the height of the disaster, “the nuclear industry and government agencies [were] scrambling to prevent the discovery of atomic-bomb research facilities hidden inside Japan’s civilian nuclear power plants”.1  (See Yoichi Shimatsu, Secret Weapons Program Inside Fukushima Nuclear Plant? Global Research,  April 12, 2011)

It should be noted that the complacency of both the media and the governments to the hazards of nuclear radiation pertains to the nuclear energy industry as well as to to use of nuclear weapons. In both cases, the devastating health impacts of nuclear radiation are casually denied. Tactical nuclear weapons with an explosive capacity of up to six times a Hiroshima bomb are labelled by the Pentagon as “safe for the surrounding civilian population”.

No concern has been expressed at the political level as to the likely consequences of a US-NATO-Israel attack on Iran, using “safe for civilians” tactical nuclear weapons against a non-nuclear state.

Such an action would result in “the unthinkable”: a nuclear holocaust over a large part of the Middle East and Central Asia. A nuclear nightmare, however, would occur even if nuclear weapons were not used. The bombing of Iran’s nuclear facilities using conventional weapons would contribute to unleashing another Fukushima type disaster with extensive radioactive fallout. (For further details See Michel Chossudovsky, Towards a World War III Scenario, The Dangers of Nuclear War, Global Research, Montreal, 2011)

 Nuclear Radiation: Categorization

At Fukushima, reports confirm that alpha, beta, gamma particles and neutrons have been released:

“While non-ionizing radiation and x-rays are a result of electron transitions in atoms or molecules, there are three forms of ionizing radiation that are a result of activity within the nucleus of an atom.  These forms of nuclear radiation are alpha particles (α-particles), beta particles (β-particles) and gamma rays (γ-rays).

Alpha particles are heavy positively charged particles made up of two protons and two neutrons.  They are essentially a helium nucleus and are thus represented in a nuclear equation by either α or .  See the Alpha Decay page for more information on alpha particles.

Beta particles come in two forms:  and  particles are just electrons that have been ejected from the nucleus.  This is a result of sub-nuclear reactions that result in a neutron decaying to a proton.  The electron is needed to conserve charge and comes from the nucleus.  It is not an orbital electron.  particles are positrons ejected from the nucleus when a proton decays to a neutron.  A positron is an anti-particle that is similar in nearly all respects to an electron, but has a positive charge.  See the Beta Decay page for more information on beta particles.

Gamma rays are photons of high energy electromagnetic radiation (light).  Gamma rays generally have the highest frequency and shortest wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum.  There is some overlap in the frequencies of gamma rays and x-rays; however, x-rays are formed from electron transitions while gamma rays are formed from nuclear transitions. See the Gamma Rays  for more” (SOURCE: Canadian Nuclear Association)

A neutron is a particle that is found in the nucleus, or center, of atoms. It has a mass very close to protons, which also reside in the nucleus of atoms. Together, they make up almost all of the mass of individual atoms. Each has a mass of about 1 amu, which is roughly 1.6×10-27kg. Protons have a positive charge and neutrons have no charge, which is why they were more difficult to discover.” (SOURCE: Neutron Radiation)

“Many different radioactive isotopes are used in or are produced by nuclear reactors. The most important of these are described below:

1. Uranium 235 (U-235) is the active component of most nuclear reactor fuel.

2. Plutonium (Pu-239) is a key nuclear material used in modern nuclear weapons and is also present as a by-product in certain reprocessed fuels used in some nuclear reactors. Pu-239 is also produced in uranium reactors as a byproduct of fission of U-235.

3. Cesium (Cs-137 ) is a fission product of U-235. It emits beta and gamma radiation and can cause radiation sickness and death if exposures are high enough. …

4. Iodine 131 (I-131), also a fission product of U-235, emits beta and gamma radiation. After inhalation or ingestion, it is absorbed by and concentrated in the thyroid gland, where its beta radiation damages nearby thyroid tissue  (SOURCE: Amesh A. Adalja, MD, Eric S.

Chernobyl nuclear plant roof collapse, no radiation leak

Wall panels and the roof of a unit at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine have partially collapsed. Two French construction companies working at the emergency unit station had to evacuate their staff, according to AFP.

No one was hurt in the incident, and the radiation level in the exclusion zone around the plant has not changed, according to the power station's management.

Wall panels and chunks of the roof collapsed on Tuesday night in the machine-hall at the plant's Reactor Number Four, site of the world's worst nuclear disaster 27 years ago. The roof was constructed after the disaster, but is not part of the 'sarcophagus' structure covering the reactor.

"Today we are talking about an anomalous event. This is not considered an emergency. But it's important to find out what exactly caused this event," TASS new agency quoted Dmitry Bobrov, deputy of the state agency for the exclusion zone as saying.

The weight of accumulated snow was believed to the cause of the incident. "The main consequence is that we need to thoroughly study cause of collapse," Bobrov said.

The affected area was estimated to be about 600 square meters, the plant's press service reported. Workers are currently clearing snow away and removing debris from the site of the incident. The incident has not threatened Unit 4's ‘safety’ dome.

French companies Vinci and Bouygues, which are constructing the outer contour of a new sarcophagus over the emergency unit station, had to pull out 80 personnel due to safety precautions.

A new sarcophagus is currently under construction, which will cover the existing one built after the accident; engineers fear the older shield will soon start crumbling, possibly allowing radiation to leak. The new arch-shaped sarcophagus is expected to contain the unit safely for about a century.

On April 26, 1986, reactor number four of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant exploded, causing the death of two workers; 28 more rescuers and staff members died of radiation exposure in the next months. The Soviet leadership was slow to admit the real scale of the catastrophe.

The disaster prompted the evacuation of tens of thousands of residents from nearby areas. Most have since suffered varying degrees of radiation poisoning, which eventually caused serious health problems, such as cancer and multiple cases of birth defects in newborns. Radioactive contamination spread as far as northern Sweden and the UK.

Chernobyl is situated around 100 kilometers from the Ukrainian capital of Kiev, and lies close to its borders of Russia and Belarus. The area around the plant is still highly contaminated, and designated as depopulated.

Fish with radiation over 2,500 times safe levels found near Fukushima plant

The unit No.1 (L) and No. 2 reactor building of the tsunami-crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant are seen through a window in a bus while Japan's new Prime Minister Shinzo Abe inspects the nuclear power plant power plant in Fukushima Prefecture December 29, 2012.(Reuters / Pool New)

The unit No.1 (L) and No. 2 reactor building of the tsunami-crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant are seen through a window in a bus while Japan's new Prime Minister Shinzo Abe inspects the nuclear power plant power plant in Fukushima Prefecture December 29, 2012.(Reuters / Pool New)

A fish containing over 2,500 times Japan's legal limit for radiation in seafood has been caught in the vicinity of the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, the facility's operator reported.

­A ‘murasoi’ fish, similar to a rockfish, was caught at a port inside the plant, according to AFP. Plant owner Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) indicated that the amount of cesium measured 254,000 becquerels per kilogram – 2,540 times Japan's legal limit for radiation in seafood.

In October, TEPCO admitted that radiation leaks at the plant had not fully stopped.

In 2011, after a March earthquake and tsunami devastated the region, Japan barred beef, vegetables, milk, seafood and mushrooms grown near the affected area from both domestic markets and exports over safety concerns.

Science magazine published an article revealing that the levels of cesium in seafood around the disaster-battered area had not decreased since 2011. In October 2012, around 40 percent of bottom-dwelling marine species demonstrated elevated radiation levels, with cesium-134 and 137 levels above Japan's legal limit. August samples collected by author Ken Buesseler had cesium levels 250 times what Japanese authorities consider safe.

Seafood from the area near Fukushima has turned out to be a health hazard abroad, as well as within the country.

In July, Russia expressed concern over fish caught off its coast near Japan. In May, a contaminated tuna was found near the California coastline. Japan stressed that they understood the numbers of contaminated seafood are “extremely high,” but also pointed out that radiation was detected only in the kinds of fish found closest to the plant.

In October 2012, the European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union, announced that it would relax regulations on imports of Japanese food starting on November 1. The restrictions were introduced after the quake and tsunami hit Japan on March 11, 2011, with many countries such as the US, Australia, Canada, Germany, France and the UK either halting food imports or starting additional inspections of Japanese imports.

Malaysia’s ‘quiet diplomacy’ prevails in eastern Ukraine

As the world mourns those who tragically lost their lives when Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 was brought down over eastern Ukraine last week, Malaysia now finds itself entangled in a distant and largely unfamiliar conflict, one that is rife with geopolitical implications.

The victims were people of various nationalities from all walks of life, whose untimely demise represents an escalation that will almost certainly lead to a wider internationalization of the civil war in Ukraine, which threatens to further deteriorate relations between Russia and the United States.

Ukraine’s war has polarized ethnic Ukrainians living in agricultural west of the country who favor integration into the European Union’s orbit, and those in the Russian-speaking industrialized southeast of the country who either support greater autonomy from Kiev or a peaceful integration into the Russian Federation following the example of Crimea.

Easterners opposed the toppling of former President Viktor Yanukovich in February, which gave rise to an unelected government in Kiev that remains heavily under the influence of ultra-nationalist rightwing groups known for their pejorative anti-Russian viewpoints.

Once seizing power earlier this year, the authorities in Kiev hastily attempted to pass laws against the official use of the Russian language throughout the country, stoking outrage from eastern Ukrainians that culturally and linguistically identify themselves as Russian.

Citizens of the east protested in mass numbers against the new authorities in Kiev and occupied public buildings, spurred on by the fear of living under an ultra-nationalist dominated government that would stigmatize the country’s ethnic Russian minority. Demonstrators called for greater autonomy for their regions.

Instead of easing fears through dialogue and trust building, Kiev labeled demonstrators as ‘terrorists’ and launched a large-scale military operation against the restive eastern regions to put down popular opposition to the new regime’s usurpation of power. Militias formed in the east to defend the rebel provinces, giving rise to the armed struggle that continues today.

In the course of Kiev’s military operation, the Ukrainian authorities have blockaded and cut electricity supplies to populated cities while shelling and launching rockets into populated residential areas, resulting in at least 250 civilian deaths since June, according to the OSCE’s Special Monitoring Mission. Half a million Ukrainians have become refugees according to UN estimates.

Enter MH17. It is in such an antagonistic political atmosphere that both sides immediately assigned blame to one another for downing the aircraft. Before any rudimentary investigation could take place, Kiev and their backers in Washington straightaway took to blaming the rebels, and by extension, the Russian government, which they accuse of aiding the separatist fighters.

After the unprecedented disappearance of MH370 four months ago, news of a second downed airliner stung with shock and disbelief. The overwhelming concern of Malaysians remains to ensure the safe return of casualties for a proper burial, rather than accusing any side of culpability.

Prime Minister Najib Razak, whose step-grandmother was among those who perished onboard MH17, has been widely perceived as serving a more direct role in handling the disaster from the onset, as he addressed the nation in the hours following the loss of the aircraft.

While media publications and political figures in western capitals hurled accusatory rhetoric from the onset, it is by virtue of Malaysia’s prudent neutrality that the administration in Putrajaya succeeded in brokering a deal with Ukrainian rebel forces that secured the surrender of MH17’s black boxes.

Najib is said to have personally conducted a series of secret telephone calls with Alexander Borodai, the self-styled Prime Minister of the Donetsk People's Republic, an entity that has declared independence from Ukraine but has not been recognized by any foreign country.

Though a great deal of international pressure was placed on Ukraine’s rebels to provide access to the crash site and surrender the black boxes, sources claim that Borodai would only agree to releasing the bodies and block boxes to Malaysia, whose officials would then transfer the material to the Netherlands.

Putrajaya’s ability to broker a deal with the Ukrainian rebels has indeed yielded noteworthy success for Najib, who has demonstrated decisive leadership in the face of an unmitigated disaster to secure the best possible outcome.

The example set by the Malaysian leadership must be reflected upon in Kiev, which has been reluctant to negotiate with rebels in the east, opting instead for a bloody military campaign that has wrought great human cost and served to push the embattled region further into Moscow’s corner.

As world powers exchange accusations, it is important at this point to acknowledge that until an objective international investigation can be undertaken, any figure attempting to assign responsibility for this heinous crime onto one side or the other without verifiable evidence is only expressing speculation, not facts.

While top representatives in Washington and Kiev accused Russia from the start, they have failed to provide any forensic evidence that can be scrutinized, relying thus far on clips that have appeared on YouTube and social media.

Russian defense officials have responded by releasing military monitoring data and satellite images that disprove the initial claims made by Kiev. Moscow claims that there is evidence to show that a Ukrainian fighter jet tailed the Boeing aircraft prior to its disappearance.

Satellite images also show Kiev deployed several surface-to-air-missile systems near rebel held-territory, and the Russian military claims to have detected radiation from the missile battery’s radar that was active at the time when the plane came down.

Defense officials have also noted that MH17 took a route some 200km to the north of the trajectories that other Malaysian Airlines flights had used in previous days that led it to fly over the troubled Donetsk region, into the heart of rebel-held territory.

BCC has reported that the Ukrainian secret service has taken the unusual move of confiscating the recording between air traffic control and the doomed aircraft. Such information would be needed to establish culpability and identify whether Ukrainian air traffic control directed the aircraft into the zone where it was shot down.

Rebel forces fighting in eastern Ukraine have succeed in shooting down military aircraft in the days preceding the MH17 disaster, though most analysts agree that the rebels would not have the capacity to strike a civilian passenger aircraft traveling at normal cruising altitude using the man-portable air defense systems that they are known to possess.

As of yet, there is no conclusive evidence that has surfaced to prove that rebels possess the kind of surface-to-air missile systems needed to take down a commercial airliner, and there is also nothing to verifiably substantiate the claim that Russia has supplied this technology to rebel fighters or assisted them in operating it.

When an international investigation panel is formed, it must demand that Ukrainian authorities release recordings between air traffic control and the Malaysian plane, in addition to the raw military radar data and tracking information needed to ascertain the movements of Ukrainian warplanes and the activity of any surface-to-air missile systems that the country possesses.

As voices in western capitals condemn Moscow in unison, the fact remains that Russia is the only country that has made available detailed forensic evidence for international investigators to scrutinize. An impartial and independent investigation into the calamity that befell Flight MH17 must be undertaken before any blame is assigned.

It’s Huge And Happening Now! A Lot Of People Are In A LOT Of...

By Susan Duclos

 A lot of people are in a LOT of trouble and no one is talking about it.. in fact there is a concentrated, organized effort by the media and the US government to hide the truth from the American people.

 A chart just published on the  Mid America Land Restoration / Microbes / Probiotics's Facebook page today, shows that alarmingly high radiation levels are being seen from one end of America to the other.

 More disturbing is the Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center's algorithm, which is explained by a representative in an article by Live Free or Die on January 2, 2014, doesn't list these areas at "alert" levels because the radiation levels have been so high for more than three months, they are now considered the norm for that area.

 Here is the explanation from January:

Radcon 2,3,4 show the direction that the NORM background radiation is going, if the levels are show up on the map, then the NORM background radiation is rising in the 3 month sliding scale. If the Radcon 1 ( green) shows up then the radiation has leveled off or decreasing like in Japan.

In fact, it appears that CPM levels are rising throughout the West coast now, even though RADCON 5′s are not being issued. Are RADCON 5′s ONLY issued when a 3 month high is reached? It seems that extremely high levels of radiation are consistently being reached on the West Coast now WITHOUT RADCON 5 alert being issued.

With that said, look at the chart below:

Now take a look at what these numbers mean:

In the video below I go over not only these numbers but the details of the highs for these areas and the lows... the lows are important because even the lows are what are considered dangerous levels, yet nothing is being done about it.

Obama at West Point

Obama at West Point

by Stephen Lendman

On May 28, Obama addressed West Point graduates. Why anyone showed up, they'll have to explain. Commissioning ceremony is traditional. 

It requires new "US Army officers to solemnly swear (to) support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that (they) bear true faith and allegiance to the same, that (they) take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that (they) will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which (they are) about to enter so help (them) God."

They're supposed to support, respect, and abide by constitutional principles. They include all US ratified treaties and conventions. 

They're automatically US law under the Constitution's Supremacy Clause (Article VI, Clause 2).

Supporting a war criminal president constitutes a flagrant violation. Perhaps West Point curricula omit instruction on fundamental rule of law principles.

Perhaps nothing on constitutional law. Or US statutes relating to war. Or appropriate international laws.

Obeying them is fundamental. Failure to know them is no excuse.

Presidents take an oath of office. It's hard imagining it given how they govern. 

Obama is a former constitutional law professor. He knows the law. He taught it. He spurns it. He does so knowingly, willfully and ruthlessly.

Under the Constitution's Article II, Section one, Clause 8:

"Before (presidents) enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

It means abiding by all its provisions. Without exception. At all times. No president ever did.

Some governed better than others. Obama exceeds the worst of his predecessors. He's guilty of high crimes too grave to ignore.

Impeaching him is a national imperative. So is prosecuting him for crimes of war, against humanity and genocide.

No one is exempt. Not presidents or anyone. He belongs in prison, not high office. Accountability is long overdue.

He delivered his usual demagogic mumbo jumbo. He justified the unjustifiable. He defended the indefensible. 

"…I congratulate you on taking your place on the Long Gray Line," he said.

"You are the first class to graduate since 9/11 who may not be sent into combat in Iraq or Afghanistan."

If not there, somewhere else. America has been at war throughout its history. Every year. Every day. Without exception.

From before July 4, 1776 through today. Don't expect longstanding tradition to change. Not now. Not anytime soon.

Not likely ahead. Not while 2014 class members remain in service. Perhaps not after they retire. America is addicted to war.

Its culture reflects violence. So does its history. It's blood-drenched. 

It glorifies war. In the name of peace. It's self-destructive. Today's super-weapons make the unthinkable possible.

Hyman Rickover knew.  Decades ago. He founded America's nuclear navy. In 1982, he told Congress:

"I do not believe that nuclear power is worth it if it creates radiation." Then you might ask me why do I have nuclear powered ships?" 

"That is a necessary evil. I would sink them all. I am not proud of the part I played in it. I did it because it was necessary for the safety of this country." 

"That's why I am such a great exponent of stopping this whole nonsense of war. Unfortunately limits - attempts to limit war have always failed." 

"The lesson of history is when a war starts every nation will ultimately use whatever weapon it has available." 

"Every time you produce radiation, you produce something that has a certain half-life, in some cases for billions of years."

"I think the human race is going to wreck itself, and it is important that we get control of this horrible force and try to eliminate it."  

It's the only way to live in peace. The alternative is annihilation. The choice is clear. 

The wrong one assures disaster. America is heading humanity toward it. A slow-motion train wreck looms. 

A big one. With no second chance. No coming back. Either we end wars or they'll end us.

Today's weapons make earlier ones look like toys. It bears repeating. They make the unthinkable possible.

Governments operate in a realm of their own. So do presidents. Without checks and balances. 

Unresponsive to popular interests. Or general welfare. Government of, by and for everyone equitably and fairly is fantasy.

Presidents are limited only by the boundaries of what's possible. Obama and likeminded extremists take full advantage.

"America has rarely been stronger relative to the rest of the world," said Obama.

"Those who argue otherwise - who suggest that America is in decline, or has seen its global leadership slip away - are either misreading history or engaged in partisan politics."  

"Think about it. Our military has no peer. The odds of a direct threat against us by any nation are low, and do not come close to the dangers we faced during the Cold War."

"(O)ur economy remains the most dynamic on Earth; our businesses the most innovative."  

"Each year, we grow more energy independent. From Europe to Asia, we are the hub of alliances unrivaled in the history of nations."

"So the United States is and remains the one indispensable nation."

"Russia's aggression toward former Soviet states unnerves capitals in Europe, while China's economic rise and military reach worries its neighbors."

"It will be your generation's task to respond to this new world."

"The question we face, the question each of you will face, is not whether America will lead, but how we will lead - not just to secure our peace and prosperity, but also extend peace and prosperity around the globe."

"…America's willingness to apply force around the world is the ultimate safeguard against chaos, and America’s failure to act in the face of Syrian brutality or Russian provocations not only violates our conscience, but invites escalating aggression in the future."

"Here's my bottom line: America must always lead on the world stage."  

"If we don't, no one else will. The military that you have joined is and always will be the backbone of that leadership."

"For the foreseeable future, the most direct threat to America at home and abroad remains terrorism."

"We have been through a long season of war…You will represent a nation with history and hope on our side.  

Your charge…is not only to protect our country, but to do what is right and just."

Fact: Nation strength depends on how it's used.

Fact: For good or evil.

Fact: America is lawless.

Fact: Ruthless.

Fact: Its human rights record is deplorable.

Fact: The world's worst.

Fact: No other nation approaches its unprincipled history.

Fact: Earlier high crimes were largely internal and/or regional.

Fact: Twentieth century ones went global. 

Fact: New millennium ones elevated atrocities and other human rights abuses to an unprecedented level. 

Fact: America is guilty of virtually every crime imaginable and then some.

Fact: It's in longterm decline.

Fact: It's a pariah state.

Fact: It makes more enemies than friends.

Fact: Russia challenges America's military might.

Fact: Its nuclear strength and delivery systems are formidable.

Fact: China is heading toward becoming the world's leading economy.

Fact: Sino/Russian unity matches America's political, economic and military strength.

Fact: They're heading toward besting them.

Fact: In all respects, America becomes less of a "hub of alliances unrivaled in the history of nations."

Fact: Calling it an "indispensable nation" insults all other sovereign states.

Fact: So-called "Russian aggression" doesn't exist.

Fact: China's growth worries America alone, not other nations.

Fact: Washington is unnerved about becoming Number Two.

Fact: It's inevitable.

Fact: China is rising.

Fact: America is declining.

Fact: Nothing foreseeable will change things.

Fact: "The question" isn't "whether America will lead." It's how it'll adjust down a slippery slope toward ordinary status and eventual ruin.

Fact: "America's willingness to apply force around the world is the ultimate" assurance of chaos.

Fact: Perhaps eventual self-destruction.

Fact: The notion that "America must always lead on the world stage (because) no one else will" insults all other sovereign states. 

Fact: "The military (West Point grads) joined is the scourge of peace, stability and survival.

Fact: "The most direct threat to America at home and abroad remain(s)" its hubris, imperial arrogance and war on humanity policy.

Fact: "Your charge" is to shift from warriors to peacemakers.

National survival depends on it. So does humanity's.

Rogue State Israeli Policies

Rogue State Israeli Policies

by Stephen Lendman

Israel is no democracy. Right-wing ideologues govern. They're militantly over-the-top. They represent Israel's lunatic fringe.

They abhor peace. They endorse war. They threaten regional security. Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon ordered Israel's military to prepare war plans on Iran.

Nearly $3 billion was allocated. It's around one-firth of Israel's budget. Both officials want Iran's nuclear facilities targeted. They want them eliminated.

Former Mossad chief Meir Dagan warned earlier. Attacking Iran assures blowback. Iran will counterattack. 

Hundreds of missiles will strike Israeli cities and strategic facilities. Dimona and other Israeli nuclear facilities will be targeted.

Regional conflict may escalate beyond what stoppable. The entire region may be embroiled. So will America. 

Attacking Iran is madness. Lunatics don't consider consequences. In March 2012, The New York Times headlined, "US War Game Sees Perils of Israeli Strike Against Iran," saying:

A "classified war simulation held this month" assessed significant repercussions of Israel attacking Iran. Doing so means regional war. America could get embroiled. Hundreds of US casualties would follow.

US Central Command's war game tested communication and coordination between its Tampa, FL headquarters and Persian Gulf forces.

Exercises were held. Then Central Command head General James Mattis was especially troubled. He told aides that "an Israeli first strike would be likely to have dire consequences across the region and for United States forces there."

Attacking Iran's nuclear facilities could affect millions catastrophically. If retaliatory Tehran strikes seriously damage or destroy Dimona and other Israeli nuclear sites, radiation will contaminate large parts of the region.

War games can't predict how nations will respond. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned earlier that Iran will retaliate if attacked. "(W)e will attack them at the same level as they attack us," he said.

Netanyahu wants ongoing Iranian nuclear attacks subverted. He called last November's Geneva agreement a "historic mistake."

At the time, Saudi Arabia called it "West(ern) treachery." An Israeli/Saudi alliance formed to subvert it. Doing so could serve as pretext for conflict.

Bottom line US/Israeli strategy hasn't changed. Both countries want Iranian governance they control. How achieved is optional. 

Hawks in both countries urge war. Attack plans were readied years ago. They can be implemented straightaway if ordered. 

False flag deception may precipitate it. Duplicity is longstanding US/Israeli tradition. Trustworthiness isn't their long suit. 

Deals they offer aren't worth the paper they're written on. Anti-Iranian sentiment is decades old. Obama and Netanyahu prioritize war. They deplore peace.

Rapprochement with Tehran faces long odds. Israeli and US saber rattling show what Iranians face.

George Clemenceau once said America is the only nation that went "from barbarism to degeneration without the usual interval of civilization." The same applies to Israel.

Threats risk becoming policy. The IDF got direct orders from Netanyahu and Ya'alon. Prepare to strike Iranian nuclear facilities. Ignore ongoing P5+1 talks.

Netanyahu rejects last November's interim nuclear agreement. He's not bound by it, he said. 

"…I believe that letting Iran enrich uranium would open up the floodgates," he said. "That must not happen. And we will make sure it does not happen."

"Letting the worst terrorist regime on the planet get atomic bombs would endanger everyone," he added. 

He repeatedly repeats the Big Lie about Iran openly "call(ing) for our destruction." Claiming it wore thin years ago. It doesn't stop endless regurgitation.

Ya'alon added: "Weakness certainly does not pay in the world.
No one can replace the US as the world's policeman. I hope the US will come to its senses."

"We think that the United States should be the one leading the campaign against Iran."

"But the US has entered talks with them and unfortunately, in the haggling in the Persian bazaar, the Iranians were better." 

"Therefore, on this matter, we have to behave as though we have nobody to look out for us but ourselves."

Iran remains hopeful about achieving a final agreement around mid-year. Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Vienna talks this week made substantial progress.

"Today the other side has finally grasped what we had been trying to say, especially when it comes to the practical needs of having a nuclear program which is logical and peaceful. And this by itself is a major progress."

Discussions about major issues were clarified, he added. They include enrichment, sanctions, international peaceful nuclear cooperation and Iran's Arak reactor.

Dismantling parts of Tehran's nuclear program isn't being considered. "(W)e are not at the stage yet to draft a statement to predict how big the differences still are," Zarif said.

Reports suggest major ones remain. A senior US official called this week's Vienna talks "intense." 

On January 20, multiple rounds began. They're expected to continue until July 20. Final resolution remains elusive.

Iran won't relinquish its nuclear rights. They fully comply with NPT provisions. No military component exists.

Iran is between a rock and a hard place. Eighty-three senators wrote Obama. They laid out "core principles."

They lied claiming "Iran has no inherent right to enrichment under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty." Tehran calls doing so fundamental. It won't sacrifice its legitimate rights.

Washington wants Fordow enrichment facility and Arak's heavy water reactor abandoned. Iran has no intention of doing either.

President Hassan Rohani said Iran won't relinquish its legal rights. 

"The world has admitted that Iran is, and will be, among the countries which have nuclear technology, including enrichment, and there is no doubt about this for anyone."

He urges equitable resolution. It's long overdue. Whether possible given hardline US/Israeli policy remains to be seen. An unnamed US official in Vienna said:

Talks were serious. They were civil. "Everybody (was) very professional, very focused, no histrionics, no walking out, no yelling and screaming." 

"People understand the stakes are pretty profound; there is a sense of the tremendous responsibility on people's shoulders."

Ukrainian tensions were temporarily ignored. How much longer remains uncertain. 

P5+1 and Iranian nuclear experts will meet in Vienna from April 3 - 5. Negotiators will conduct more talks from from April 7 - 9.

Iran's main goal is "normalizing (its) case similar to every other member state of the NPT," Zarif stressed.

Tehran's fundamental rights won't be sacrificed. Israel wants Iran having none. Washington may add new demands not yet revealed. 

Final resolution remains elusive. Netanyahu plans making it impossible. Key is whether Obama agrees.

A Final Comment

Israeli rogue state policies are multifaceted. Fundamental rule of law principles are systematically violated. Human and civil rights don't matter.

Palestinians have none whatever. Conditions go from bad to worse. Militarized occupation harshness bears full responsibility. 

A new Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research (PSR) is disturbing. It discusses "The Likelihood, Consequences and Policy Implications of PA Collapse or Dissolution."

Financial and political pressures may precipitate it. PSR envisions three possible scenarios:

(1) Israel and/or Washington may impose "severe or crippling financial and political sanctions."

(2) PLO leadership may abandon a two-state solution. Achieving it on Israeli terms is impossible. Hundreds of thousands of settlers on stolen Palestinian land alone does so. Rights sought may be sought other ways.

(3) Economic, financial and political crises may be inevitable. Public outrage may follow. Perhaps a third Intifada. Fundamental demands unable to be met may cause PA collapse.

PSR got opinions from 30 experts. Dozens of others were involved. They represent finance, economics, internal security, law enforcement, health, education, communications, judicial affairs, local government, water, electricity, civil and domestic political affairs, as well as whether or not a two-state solution remains feasible. 

For sure not on Israeli terms. PSR director Khalil Shikaki conducted the study. Palestinians require PA help, he said. 

They depend on it for "financial well being, social and political status in society, and there are circles that depend on their relation to PA," he said. 

"Anything that happens to the PA will take all of that away from them. These could be organizations, business interests or individuals who have positions of power that allow them to reward sympathizers."

"If they could call the shots, they would do their best to prevent (the PA's collapse)." 

"But even those who have a vested interest in satisfying Israel, for the sake of preserving the PA, cannot do it for too long."

Palestinians get painfully little help. At the same time, they rely on whatever is forthcoming. It's better than nothing.

"People do not want to see themselves without a central authority that prevents chaos and anarchy in the streets, even if they have a lot of criticism of the PA and its functioning," said Shikaki. 

"But the Palestinians are willing to risk it collapsing completely, if it happens in the midst of a struggle for a change in the status quo." 

"If there is a good reason for it to collapse, then (Palestinians say) let it be."

Public discontent began years ago. Over time, it intensified. PA officials are Israeli enforcers. In over 20 years, they failed. They haven't achieved fundamental goals.

Things are much worse now than then. Economic and financial conditions alone cause horrific harm. Exploitation substitutes for social justice. Political rights don't exist.

PSR's " 'Day After' Final Report" is troubling. PA collapse may be inevitable. At the same time, "(a)ll Palestinians who participated in the discussion shared the view that Israel and the PA have a common interest in keeping the PA functioning," said Shikaki.

"Palestinian society in general understands that the PA is able to exist as long as Israel is happy with it, and as long as Palestinians find it useful to them."

Study participants assumed that "at all levels there will be an attempt to prevent collapse."

At the same time, both sides believe "they can do a lot of harm to the other without risking" it. In other words, Israel will save the day if necessary. 

If PA officials voluntarily decide to dismantle, "Palestinians might seek to force Israel to either deepen its occupation, reverting to the situation that prevailed before 1994, or change its policies by seriously negotiating the end of its occupation, or unilaterally withdraw from most of the West Bank."

Impending collapse "might force Israel to re-examine its options."

Avoiding it requires PA officials abandoning counterproductive policies. They include poor planning, lack of transparency, excessive centralization, conflicting interests, rampant corruption, and benefitting Israel at the expense of their own people.

Hamas would benefit greatly from PA collapse. Israel's likely response would be another matter entirely. 

Palestinians suffered injustice for decades. Nothing ahead suggests achieving their liberating struggle. It continues unresolved.

Militarism in Germany

Militarism in Germany

by Stephen Lendman

A previous article discussed WW I's 100th anniversary. On July 29, 1914, it began. It was called the war to end all wars.

WW II followed. German involvement was central in both wars. In 1945, Hitler's Wehrmacht was disbanded. 

It ravaged and destroyed much of Europe. It killed millions of people. Most Germans wanted never again. They renounced militarism.

A new Bundeswehr was established. It was constitutionally restricted to defense. Conscripts were called "citizens in uniform."

At the same time, West Germany joined NATO. It did so in May 1955. In October 1990, membership included the former German Democratic Republic (GDR).

NATO is a killing machine. It's a US-led imperial tool. It threatens world peace. 

Germany bears its share of responsibility. Especially after reunification. In November 2010, a new combat medal was established.

At the time, the Frankfurter Rundschau said:

"For a long time we have heard very little about the citizen in uniform, but increasingly about combatants for German interests around the world." 

"And good combat soldiers need not only proper equipment, but also recognition."

Months after German reunification, Bundeswehr policy objectives changed. They went beyond defense.

They include the "promotion and protection of worldwide political, economic, military and ecological stability."

They involve "maintain(ing) free world trade and access to strategic raw materials."

In 1998, Germany's ruling Social Democratic Party/Green Party coalition government approved combat in Yugoslavia. It was lawless aggression.

It was Germany's first involvement since WW II. It wasn't the last.

Germany is an active NATO member. Thousands of Bundeswehr soldiers served with US ones in Afghanistan. They did so for over a decade.

In October 2013, Der Spiegel discussed how "Afghanistan changed the German military."

It arrived over a decade ago. Allegedly as peacekeepers. In October 2013, Germany ceremonially handed over its Kunduz military base to Afghan security forces.

Then German Defense Minister Thomas d Maiziere said: "Here we built and fought, cried and consoled, killed and died." 

Then German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle added: "We are not turning our backs on the people of Afghanistan."

Neither minister acknowledged Germany's role in ravaging and destroying a long-suffering country.

In more than ever turning it into a wasteland. In sustaining conflict without end. In causing mass slaughter, destruction, and horrific human suffering. In destroying an entire generation.

Afghanistan transformed Germany for the worst. Its Bundeswehr is an offensive fighting force. It partners in NATO aggression.

Retired General Harald Kujat/former Bundeswehr chief of staff acknowledged it, saying:

"Afghanistan has been the most important experience for the German armed forces." 

"It was the first time since World War II that the German military was involved in real combat action."

Its experience made it a "real fighting force." Patrick Keller is a German foreign policy/security analyst.

"It's not too far fetched that we will have to be prepared to act" in future Middle East, North African, central and eastern European conflicts, he argued.

"Germany increasingly shoulder(s) more responsibility," he added. Militant Bundestag members want greater German assertiveness.

German parliamentarian Roderich Kiesewetter wants increased German leadership - "to take over responsibility where others are not willing to," he said.

German militarism is small compared to America's. Its budget is a small fraction of Washington's. It's less than what Britain, France, Japan and Saudi Arabia spend.

Its militarism assures it's only a matter of time until it's increased. Germany is Europe's economic powerhouse. It wields enormous political influence.

Hardline German officials stress the close connection between security and economic interests. German militarism reflects it.

So does Chancellor Angela Merkel. She wants Germany's NATO role increased. She wants it more involved in "shap(ing) the global order."

She's a reliable US imperial partner. On January 28, Der Spiegel headlined "Germany Weighs Stronger Military Role," saying:

"Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen want Germany to assume a greater role in world affairs, including military missions abroad."

Both ministers believe an economic powerhouse like Germany can't stay on the sidelines.

Policy changes are happening. Germany plans greater involvement in France's Mali operation.

It's "considering providing military aircraft for transport and medical evacuation in the Central African Republic," said Der Spiegel.

Greater military assertiveness is replacing earlier restraint. Steinmeier wants Germany "ready to engage in foreign and security policy issues earlier, more decisively, and more substantially."

An unnamed Foreign Ministry official said Germany can't stay uninvolved.

Merkel is rhetorically noncommittal. An unnamed Chancellery official claims "no fundamental change regarding foreign missions."

How far she'll go remains to be seen. Germans are "skeptical." They're leery about "engaging in combat missions," said Der Spiegel. 

Most oppose greater involvement. Nearly half of Germans think the Bundeswehr is too engaged abroad.

At the same time, Merkel won't leave French foreign operations "left alone." Or America's.

Defense Minister von der Leyen wants Germany involved in a "joint European defense policy worthy of the name."

She wants Germany involved in "current crises and conflicts…To sit and wait is not an option," she said.

"If we have means, we have capabilities. We have the obligation and, we have the responsibility to engage."

Rhetorically, Merkel is largely ambiguous. Officially she's supportive.

German President Joachim Gauck's just concluded Munich Security Conference comments reflects it.

He called for greater German assertiveness. "Germany can't carry on as before," he said.

"Dramatic" new "open world order threats" require more frequent and decisive German responses, he added.

In other words, he argued for stepped up militarism. He wants Germany involved globally.

"Are we doing what we can to stabilize our neighborhood, both in the East and in Africa," he asked?

"Are we doing what we have to in order to counter the (non-existent) threat of terrorism?"

"And, in cases where we have found convincing reasons to join our allies in taking military action, are we willing to bear our fair share of the risks?"

In cases of military intervention, "Germany should not say no on principle."

Gauck, Foreign Minister Steinmeier, and Defense Minister von der Leyen share likeminded sentiment. 

Germany has a disturbing pre-WW II history of militarism. Millions of Germans died in both wars.

Older Germans remember. They want never again. Younger ones never experienced the horrors of war. Everyone everywhere is vulnerable today.

Einstein explained saying: "I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones."

Waging global war is unthinkable. Today's super-weapons can extinguish life worldwide. Imagine mushroom-shaped cloud denouement.

Helen Caldicott said enough nuclear explosions "would create nuclear winter, with the US covered with a cloud so thick that it would block out the sun for years, and that would be the end."

Nobel laureate George Wald (1906 - 1997) said "there's no such thing as safe nuclear power." He called dying from it "so ghastly ignoble as to be, I think, intolerable, altogether unacceptable."

He deplored nuclear weapons. He denounced them. He wanted them eliminated. "Our business is life, not death," he said. 

He called for "closing down all nuclear power plants tomorrow."
He made Richard Nixon's enemies list. 

He called political leaders of his time "insane." He called the Vietnam War one of "the most shameful episodes in the whole of American history."

Imagine what he'd say today. Admiral Hyman Rickover founded America's nuclear navy. In 1982, he told Congress:

"I do not believe that nuclear power is worth it if it creates radiation. Then you might ask me why do I have nuclear powered ships?" 

"That is a necessary evil. I would sink them all. I am not proud of the part I played in it. I did it because it was necessary for the safety of this country." 

That's why I am such a great exponent of stopping this whole nonsense of war. Unfortunately limits - attempts to limit war have always failed." 

"The lesson of history is when a war starts every nation will ultimately use whatever weapons it has available." 

"Every time you produce radiation, you produce something that has a certain half-life, in some cases for billions of years."

Media Blackout on Smart Meter Dangers

Major power utilities continue to deploy “smart” electrical meters on businesses and private residences throughout the United States and Canada. Yet those in North America and elsewhere remain in the dark on the negative health effects of such devices that systematically blast their homes with radio-frequency (RF) radiation on a minute-by-minute, round-the-clock basis.

In 2009 the Obama administration partnered with utilities by allocating $3.4 billion in federal stimulus funds toward building a nationwide “smart grid,” where smart meters figure centrally.[1] The project is part of President Obama’s “Climate Action Plan” that under United Nations auspices seeks to reduce US carbon emissions 20% by the year 2020.[2]

There is more than ample research available that has associated negative health effects of RF radiation emitted by smart meters [3] for regulatory authorities to place restrictions on power utilities and compel them to abide by the precautionary principle. Such restrictions would require power providers to refrain from wide scale installation of smart meters until a sufficient body of scientific research demonstrating the safety of such devices has been produced and rigorously evaluated.

Yet in the US and elsewhere the imperative of having a “smart grid,” the prospect of a carbon trading scheme, lax (and in at least some cases corrupt) state and federal regulatory bodies, and the sheer power of the utilities combine to jeopardize the long term health of the entire population.

In a purportedly democratic society news outlets play a decisive role in such an impending health crisis. By failing to report on the dubious health research of smart meters and the fact that the public is being involuntarily subjected to such technology, news media are a key factor in the citizenry’s continued ignorance and inaction.

In May 2011 the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer categorized “radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer, associated with wireless cellphone use.”[4] Despite this warning from a well-recognized source, the utilities stubbornly insist that all residences must be equipped with a smart meter issuing dangerous electropollution.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ceased studying the health effects of radiofrequency radiation when the Senate Appropriations Committee cut the department’s funding and forbade it from further research into the area.[5] Thereafter RF limits were codified as mere “guidelines” based on the EPA’s tentative findings and are presently overseen by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

These weakly enforced standards are predicated on the alleged “thermal effect” of RF to which the FCC subscribes. In other words, if the energy emitted from a wireless antenna or device is not powerful enough to heat the skin or flesh then no danger is posed to human health.[6]

To this day power utilities cling to this severely outmoded and unscientific standard when confronted with the formidable body of research linking RF to cancer, destruction of DNA, and other negative health effects. News media seldom question the FCC policy when it is cited by utilities and regulators alike to underline the supposed overall safety of smart meters.[7]

An electronic LexisNexis search of newspaper articles referencing “smart meters” appearing between May 31, 2011, the date WHO classified RF a Class 2B carcinogen, and June 19, 2014, yields close to 839 pieces published in English language papers. Yet for the same time span only one tenth of the sample (82 articles) mentions “smart meters” and “carcinogen” or “carcinogenic” in the same report. Of these, 65 of the articles appeared in Canadian, and to a much lesser degree Australian or UK papers. Note that each sample includes guest editorials and letters to the editor penned by concerned citizens.

Using parameters from the date May 31, 2011, the date WHO declared RF a Class 2B carcinogen, to January 19, 2014, of 93 newspaper articles referencing “smart meter” and “World Health Organization,” 76 were published in Canadian, and to a much lesser degree UK, Australian, Malaysian or New Zealand outlets.

As the above suggests, the extremely limited awareness especially in the US of the potential health consequences of exposure to the continual RF emitted by smart meters is primarily because the issue is being blacked out in the press. When such dangers are reported, they are tempered by the refrain of the FCC’s “thermal effect” policy, which in light of the abundant countervailing research amounts to disinformation.

In December 2013 I contacted the reporter at the local metro-daily Palm Beach Post covering the state power utility, Florida Power and Light, and its smart meter policy to remind her of the bevy of public health and medical research documenting the likely consequences of sustained RF exposure. I also directed her to the WHO statement classifying RF as potentially carcinogenic.

To the Post’s credit a subsequent story highlighting Florida Power and Light’s “opt out” policy referenced the WHO statement. Yet the piece appeared deep in the business section of the paper, and the WHO warning was accompanied by the Florida Public Service Commission’s familiar rejoinder.

In 2011 the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classified radio frequency electromagnetic fields such as those emitted by cellular phones, microwaves and smart meters as possibly carcinogenic to humans.

The PSC has said its authority does not extend to health issues related to meters. Smart meters are certified for compliance with radio frequency emission standards by the Federal Communications Commission, and the FCC has deemed that meters in compliance with the standards do not have adverse health impacts.[8]

While one or more hidden agendas likely exist to keep the public unaware of the health dangers associated with RF and smart meters (again, think carbon trading, in addition to the social control possibilities via energy rationing and surveillance soon to be realized through the “smart grid,”) a more immediate cause for such censorship is simply profit and continued media monopoly control of public opinion and discourse.

The telecommunications industry whose services are largely predicated on RF has recently exhibited the largest growth in advertising outlays, which are surely recognized in bottom line terms by the news and media industries.[9] With potential continued revenue growth on this scale, raising questions and relaying information that can safeguard public health and allow citizens to ask intelligent questions concerning the health of themselves and their loved ones simply constitutes poor business practice.

Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely Stained By Past With Devil Worshiper! Washington March A Sacrifice...

Benedict Arnold was a great patriot and hero of the American Revolution; until he wasn’t. Now, his contributions to the cause of freedom go unrecognized, his name is synonymous with betrayal and treason. As the country marches inexorably towards the second American Revolution, many people - including honorably retired members of the Armed Forces of the United States - are setting themselves up to lead it. One of these men is Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely, who may not be what he appears.

Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely is a darling of the Tea Party, a “Birther” who has called for Barack Obama’s impeachment over the many lies told by the administration, particularly those told about the al-Qaeda attack on the CIA outpost in Benghazi Libya that resulted in the deaths of three Americans including Amb. Christopher Stephens. Maj. Gen. Vallely now wants to lead a formation of Americans in a march on Washington DC to oust the Kenyan usurper and restore the Republic to a constitutional state; but can Vallely be trusted?

EDITOR'S NOTE: I have received confirmation from Col. Harry Riley, the founder of Operation American Spring, that Maj. Gen Vallely has no connection to OAS or Col. Riley's planned march on Washington D.C. on May 16th. Col. Riley will be a guest on TTiVLIVE! in the very near future to talk about his plans.
In 1980 Maj. Gen. Vallely, who retired from the Army in 1991 as Deputy Commanding General of the United States Army in the Pacific and is now a senior military analyst for Fox News Channel, co-wrote a paper entitled, "FromPSYOP to Mindwar: The Psychology of Victory" with Lt. Col. Michael Aquino. And therein lies the problem.

Lt. Col. Michael Aquino, "Temple of Set" Founder
Aquino is officially retired from the NSA and U.S. Army Special Forces; but he is still an avowed Satanist. Aquino is the founder of a Luciferian cult called the “Temple of Set,” and his name is frequently associated with ritual child abuse cases in the United States military, including the Franklin and Presidio scandals.

Aquino has never been convicted of any crime, but his name keeps on popping up in child sex scandals at military installations all over the country, prompting this writer to wonder if he is not being protected by the Dark Lord. You know what they say,  “Where there’s smoke there’s fire,” and Aquino’s career is nothing if not densely smoke-filled.

Aquino broke away from Anton LeVay’s Church of Satan and started the “Temple of Set” fully five years before he co-wrote this paper with Maj. Gen. Vallely, so Vallely had to have known about Aquino’s association with the Prince of Darkness. How can Americans trust a man with these kind of connections to lead a demonstration, the purpose of which is ostensibly to restore the rule of law to a now fallen Republic, to undertake what can only be described as a Holy mission?

The purpose of the paper was to set forth a doctrine intended to control populations of varying sizes, from entire countries to unruly mobs, by instilling them with a never-ending and overwhelming sense of fear. And this was 34 years ago. Since then technology has advanced sufficiently so that ideas, suggestions, and even “voices” can be beamed into the head of a victim using microwaves and other types of radiation; true beam weapons that can instill in the victim and overwhelming sense of dread, confusion, and despair. Watch this video, sent to this reporter by Patriot News Network host Kathy Rubio, to learn more about "Mindwar."

In this episode of The Truth Is Viral, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Bobby Powell speaks with talk show hosts Kathy Rubio and Zeeda Andrews (from the Patriots Ride for the Constitution) about information they have received from militia leaders that had planned to attend this event, patriots that are finding out too late that they have been lied to.

Rubio and Andrews claim that information they have received from military sources as well as members of various militias indicates that Vallely's march to reclaim the Republic is ultimately intended to be a sacrifice to Satan, the blood of patriots meant to stain his altar, the area between the Washington Monument and the Capitol rotunda. These monuments were built to represent the erect phallus of Osiris (aka Apollo, Appolyon, Antichrist,)  and the ever pregnant belly of Isis by the Masonic architects that laid out the nation’s capital in accordance with the ancient Egyptian "Mystery Religion."

Andrews even makes the startling claim that several patriots have been arrested, some even killed, and that their deaths are being totally suppressed. The Truth Is Viral has not been able to substantiate this shocking accusation; but rest assured if innocent patriots are being murdered, their friends and family are being left behind. And they will talk. When they do, The Truth Is Viral will share their stories after the deaths of their loved ones, and the circumstances surrounding those deaths, have been confirmed.

It is not the editorial position of The Truth Is Viral that Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely is a Satanist, but the fact that he has had a clos
