Eye of The Storm Series #8: The Big Propaganda Game
After taking a break from email processing, I've been doing my best to catch up with accumulated emails and prepare this 140 page+ new compilation for you. Inevitably the H1N1 scam is again a main focus with the mass vaccination campaign now set to start in the US in less than a week - despite any actual evidence that this flu strain has mutated to become more lethal as fear-mongered by the usual culprits. (Incidentally, if there ever was such a mutation, wouldn't their vaccine become useless to build immunity, according to the faulty "logic" of the vaccination proponents?...)
Among the tons of information I've compiled below, I'd like to immediately bring the following to your attention:
And from H1N1 DEATH RATE WILL BE MODERATELY HIGHER THAN SEASONAL FLU, OFFICIALS BELIEVE (15 September 2009) 'No evidence that the virus has mutated to a form that will increase the mortality rate' -- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) quickly moved to temper the suggestion by the Presidential Council of Advisors on Science and Technology that as many as 90,000 Americans could die from the H1N1 influenza virus this flu season. CDC stated that this is only one possible scenario among many. Indeed, many experts believe the figure is much too high considering the mortality nature of the H1N1 flu virus that's now circulating. Anne Schuchat, director of CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, told reporters that the higher estimate from the White House advisory group is one of many planning scenarios and is based on mathematical modeling projections. Other top public health officials agreed.I'm convinced that they were taken aback by a very high end prediction and had to scramble a bit while still appearing to support the White House, one senior official told HSToday.us. Overall, officials believe the 90 thousand figure is felt to be a gross overestimate absent development of a sudden lethally mutant change, the official stated, adding theres no evidence of this occurring at present, anywhere in the world. There will be an increase in the attack rate without an increase in the death rate. CLIP - AS USUAL POLITICIANS IN THE POCKET OF BIG PHARMA COMPANIES ARE TRYING TO PUMP UP THE FEAR VOLUME WITHOUT ANY SUBSTANTIATIVE EVIDENCE TO BASE THEIR GLOOMY SCENARIOS ON...
"Much of the rationale behind the decision by governments around the world to launch massive flu vaccination campaigns against the H1N1 virus is the fear of a second wave of much deadlier infections. (...) Marc Lipsitch, a professor of epidemiology at Harvard University, told a meeting of flu experts in Washington this month that the H1N1 death rate compares to a moderate year of seasonal influenza. Richard Schabas, a public health officer in Ontario, noted that the H1N1 activity in Australia, which has just gone through its winter, was no worse than the seasonal flu. And that bodes well for Canada, he said. He accused the WHO and other public-health authorities - which have a vested interest in promoting their agendas - of unnecessarily causing panic. "There's no reason to think that the influenza we're going to see this fall and winter - which will probably be totally H1N1 - is going to be more virulent than what we've seen," Schabas said. "I don't subscribe to that theory at all. I think that's unscientific fear-mongering." (Taken from Spanish flu pandemic a stark precedent - September 26 - BUT IS IT REALLY!! )
As the title of this compilation indicates, what has been going on for the past several months is a worldwide propaganda campaign to prepare the public to accept being vaccinated. Yet according to the latest (Oct 1, 2009) poll: Two Thirds Of Parents Will Not Vaccinate Kids With H1N1 Shot (in the U.S.). So obviously they are failing so far to brainwash people into their near suicidal suggestion to have a lethal/debilitating cocktail injected into our bloodstream for the fat profits of Big Pharma and the potentially mass genocidal aims of the Bilderberg Cabal, something which, again, has to be seriously considered according to the many supportive evidence I've found. I especially recommend to your attention the Sept 10 Project Camelot interview with Jane Burgermeister (54:40) at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PelTWCUmTsU and this revealing video testimonial.
And of course, this is just the tip of the needle, so as to say... There is MUCH MUCH MORE to discover below. One of the key aspects hardly anyone mentions - aside from the fact all mainstream media pseudo journalists seem to willingly participate in this global mass indoctrination into the highly dubious value and safety of this imminent mass vaccination campaign - is the need for everyone to both circulate the information such as what is found below and in my 4 previous compilations to awaken as many people as possible to the threat to their health and freedom hanging over their heads, and also to loudly speak out against this whole fear propaganda - as New York nurses did a couple days ago - so that people massively refuse to take the toxic jab, which is the ONLY way to deter the Power That Be from moving ahead with their dark plans.
One last thing... More than ever, it is vital and incumbent upon us all who have been awakening to our true spiritual nature to now stand tall and firm into our truth and conviction that we are sovereign soul beings who will never let fear and anger disturb and prevent us from expressing and being Love in all our relations and towards all other beings... Please remind yourself of this key state of heart - no fear, ONLY Love and kindness - as you read the following material and mention/recommend it to others...
We are entering some important testing times now and Light/Love will prevail as long as we don't let fear burn out our spiritual wings.
Our example will be contagious - much more than any concocted virus can possibly be - and will make the crucial difference...

Impending Mandatory Vaccinations Will Affect The Health, Jobs of Canadians
After recent reports that Canada's public health officials are engaged in cover-up operations to conceal flu origin, there is now evidence and growing concerns and that all the warnings, dire predictions and preparations for the H1N1 swine flu are leading to mandatory vaccinations under the guise of "voluntary cooperation" initiatives from Canadian health agencies. The Canadian pandemic plan calls for the vaccination of the entire population over a period of two months. Vaccination campaigns are targeting the workplace, schools, recreational centres and even bars and nightclubs. Community mass vaccination clinics are scheduled to inoculate millions of people in every province in Canada. CLIP

"In other words, the vaccines we give our children are liquids filled with a host of unknown particles, most of which came from the cells of non-humans: from chickens, monkeys and even from cancer cells. Truly we do not know what we are doing or what are the long-term consequences. All that is known for sure is that vaccines are a very cheap form of public medicine often provided by governments to assure the public that they really do care for the safety of our children."
"The fact that the flu shots are ineffective in every age group hardly seems to matter to those who continually promote their use. Multiple studies published in highly reputable publications have documented that flu shots are ineffective in all ages. For example, The Cochrane Collaboration produced a series of articles in 2005 reviewing the published literature to determine the effectiveness of the flu shot. Nothing substantiating its usefulness was found. In a review of 51 studies involving more than 260,000 children, including 17 papers translated from Russian, researchers concluded that there was No evidence that injecting children 6-23 months of age with flu vaccines is any more effective than placebo. For healthy adults, the results were similar. A total of 25 studies were reviewed that included more than 60,000 study participants. Again, The Cochrane Group found that vaccination reduced risk of influenza by a meager 6% and reduced the number of days missed from work by less than one (0.16) day. Researchers concluded, Universal immunization of healthy adults was not supported by the results of this review. For the elderly population, the prime target group for flu shots, The Cochrane Group reviewed 64 studies and chided that, The runaway 100% effectiveness that's touted by proponents [of the flu shot] was nowhere to be seen What you see is that marketing rules the response to influenza, and scientific evidence comes fourth or fifth. A new study, soon to be released in the prestigious medical journal, Vaccine, resulted in the same conclusion. The study was undertaken to determine whether the incidence of influenza had decreased in Ontario, Canada following the introduction of the Universal Influenza Immunization Campaign (UIIC) in 2000. All laboratory-confirmed influenza casesdiagnosed between January 1990 and August 2005were analyzed. It was determined that, despite intensified vaccination distribution and the increased financial resources used to promote vaccination, the incidence of influenza had not been decreased by the national flu shot campaign."

Charlie Sheen's Video Message to President Obama (10 September 2009) MOST POWERFUL!! MUST WATCH! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZyKR2-A0KPU
Charlie Sheen addresses the President about 9/11 in a special video message, shortly after releasing his "20 Minutes with the President," specifically addressing 20 key points that need to be answered by a truly independent investigation. Sheen's message is a call to action, not only for President Obama to address the pertinent issues, but for activists everywhere to pressure their representatives and leaders, wherever they may be, to 'be on the right side of history' and take back the country through peaceful revolution and true grassroots dissent.

Unfortunately, Sheen got no response from the White House. But seriously, I dont think that Obama is interested in re-opening an independant investigation and if he does, what happened to JFK will happen to him the following day. I think the only hope here is to collect millions of signatures worldwide and ask United Nations to do it. Now United States is killing thousands of people around the world under the banner war on terror and this should be stopped. US has become a rogue nation and must be taught a lesson. How come nobody is reacting to all the killings: Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan using drone, now Somalia. Who gave the right to the US to go in Somalia and kill people. CLIP

The 9/11 Commission Rejects own Report as Based on Government Lies http://www.salem-news.com/articles/september112009/911_truth_9-11-09.php
(CINCINNATI, Ohio) - In John Farmers book: The Ground Truth: The Story Behind Americas Defense on 9/11", the author builds the inescapably convincing case that the official version... is almost entirely untrue... The 9/11 Commission now tells us that the official version of 9/11 was based on false testimony and documents and is almost entirely untrue. The details of this massive cover-up are carefully outlined in a book by John Farmer, who was the Senior Counsel for the 9/11 Commission. Farmer, Dean of Rutger Universities' School of Law and former Attorney General of New Jersey, was responsible for drafting the original flawed 9/11 report. Does Farmer have cooperation and agreement from other members of the Commission? Yes. Did they say Bush ordered 9/11? No. Do they say that the 9/11 Commission was lied to by the FBI, CIA, Whitehouse and NORAD? Yes. Is there full documentary proof of this? Yes. Farmer states...at some level of the government, at some point in time there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened... I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described . The [Norad air defense] tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years. This is not spin. CLIP Check also The Mysterious Collapse of World Trade Center 7: Why the Final Official Report About 9/11 Is Unscientific and False
9/11 Families To March on City Hall As City Seeks to Stop Fresh Probe of Attacks From Going On November Ballot http://www.informationliberation.com/?id=27472
New York City - On Sunday, September 27 at 2pm, The New York City Coalition for Accountability Now (NYC CAN), a group comprising 9/11 family members, first responders and survivors, will march from Battery Park to City Hall in protest of the City's attempt to block the referendum for a fresh probe of the 9/11 attacks from going on the November ballot. The effort to establish a local commission to pick up where the 9/11 Commission left off comes just as the 9/11 Commission's Chief Counsel John Farmer released a book entitled "The Ground Truth" in which he claims "at some level of government, at some point in time· there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened." 80,000 New Yorkers have signed the petition as it has won the endorsement of 2002 TIME magazine person of the year, and former FBI agent, Coleen Rowley, as well as outspoken 9/11 victims' family members including Bill Doyle, who lost his son Joey, and Lorie Van Auken, who lost her husband Kenneth. Van Auken is one of the esteemed 'Jersey Girls' who successfully lobbied the federal government to set up the 9/11 Commission only to have 70% of her group's questions to the Commission go unanswered.

Why Propaganda Trumps Truth By Paul Craig Roberts (September 15, 2009) http://www.opednews.com/articles/Why-Propaganda-Trumps-Trut-by-Paul-Craig-Roberts-090915-313.html
An article in the journal, Sociological Inquiry, casts light on the effectiveness of propaganda. Researchers examined why big lies succeed where little lies fail. Governments can get away with mass deceptions, but politicians cannot get away with sexual affairs.The researchers explain why so many Americans still believe that Saddam Hussein was behind 9/11, years after it has become obvious that Iraq had nothing to do with the event. (...) What I find puzzling is the people I know who do not believe a word the government says about anything except 9/11. For reasons that escape me, they believe that the government that lies to them about everything else tells them the truth about 9/11. How can this be, I ask them. Did the government slip up once and tell the truth? My question does not cause them to rethink their belief in the governments 9/11 story. Instead, they get angry with me for doubting their intelligence or their integrity or some such hallowed trait. The problem faced by truth is the emotional needs of people. With 9/11 many Americans feel that they must believe their government so that they dont feel like they are being unsupportive or unpatriotic, and they are very fearful of being called terrorist sympathizers. Others on the left-wing have emotional needs to believe that peoples oppressed by the US have delivered blowbacks. Some leftists think that America deserves these blowbacks and thus believe the governments propaganda that Muslims attacked the US. Naive people think that if the US governments explanation of 9/11 was wrong, physicists and engineers would all speak up. Some have (see above). However, for most physicists and engineers this would be an act of suicide. Physicists owe their careers to government grants, and their departments are critically dependent on government funding.

We all know what has to happen. But are we too primitive and irrational to do it? (...) China has hinted it would agree to more substantial restraint at Copenhagen if the rich world - responsible for 90 per cent of all the warming gases belched into the atmosphere so far - agrees to give one per cent of its GDP annually to poor countries to adjust to clean fuels. There's a lot to criticise the Chinese dictatorship for, but this isn't one of them. It's a reasonable request for simple justice. Poor countries have done very little to cause this crisis, but they will feel the worst, first. They deserve our reparations. Yet both the EU and US have damned this sane proposal as "totally unrealistic".So are we, as a species, condemned to fall into the historical crack between a world powered by fossil fuels, and one powered by the sun? Will the fossil record discovered millions of years from now show we were just too irrational and too primitive to make that leap?If we despair and wait glumly for the meltdown, we will make it so. Then we will have little choice but to try to survive as best we can in a radically altered landscape. But there is still a slim window in which sanity can prevail - and I believe, perhaps madly, that it can. It will require a global mass movement of extraordinary tenacity, pressuring governments everywhere, and overpowering the fossil fools. We can still change the tale of the 21st century from one of collapse to one of a species finding a way to live with its ecosystem, rather than against it.It can be done. It must be done. Copenhagen is in three months. There, and in the years after when the deal must be implemented, we will learn something profound about ourselves. Are we a great generation - or the worst of all?

A Call For an Investigation of What is Known About Crop Circles - Given skewed press coverage and unfounded attacks by professed skeptics, there is a predisposition to dismiss this phenomenon. However, a modicum of time spent examining the evidence shows that there is more to crop circles than is popularly understood. Something is happening on Earth that could be extraordinary. It is very possible that we are receiving intelligent communications from a non-human source. With circles dating back at least hundreds of years and perhaps thousands, well over 2,000 formations have been documented and examined since 1989 when the phenomenon took a turn into designs of much greater complexity. They have appeared now on every continent except Antarctica, with reports of circles in the United States going back to 1880. Incredibly, we see very little about this in the media. -- We, the signers of this, request that attention be paid to the crop circle phenomenon. We urge all those who think there are mundane explanations for crop circles to become aware of the research that has been done that suggests otherwise. It is in fact possible that a highly intelligent non-human agency is responsible. At this time, when a unifying vision is needed for all the peoples of Earth, this phenomenon could provide that. With even a small chance of such a result, we urge serious investigation of the possibility that we are indeed being visited and signaled. - Sign the call CLIP

The Legend of Atlantis is a five part documentary series on the advanced civilization of Atlantis which thrived 11,000 years ago and the occult, esoteric mysticism associated with the legend. Many eons ago extraterrestrial beings came to Earth and settled inside the core of the planet with the purpose of developing higher forms of biological life on the surface of Earth. The civilization of Atlantis arose as the fourth root race of humanoids living in the 4th dimension succeeded by the 'Aryans' of the Vedas. They lived during a time when Power and Love were united and human beings did not live with an ego, separate from the higher self, the divinity within and all around.

Orbs are transdimensional light beings in simpler words they are a conscious form of spiritual energy traveling through dimensions and are mostly invisible to the naked eye seen by a few gifted people and captured by digital cameras all over the planet. Orbs are seen mostly around places with good vibrations such as places where people are singing, dancing, meditating or praying ... basically having a good time with a lot positive energy all around ! The most common belief is that Orbs are Spirits, Cherubs, Angels, Ghosts or Fairies watching over us and guiding us in subtle ways experienced within our conscious and subconscious states of awareness. Similar Balls of Light have been seen around crop circles and some believe some of these Orbs to be Extraterrestrials or UFOs manifesting interacting with the consciousness. Modern day Chi Kung Masters speak of Orbs as balls of energy that can communicate and heal. Orbs also react to peoples emotions and appear in greater numbers when people are experiencing emotions or conscious states of love, joy and bliss ! It is possible to manifest Orbs as it is an interactive phenomena and our consciousness creates ...Orbs are seen in different colors as well. Most of the Orbs i have seen in pictures on the Internet and in some of the pictures I'd taken on my Olympus FE-330 are simple bright white balls of light while there are some blue orbs as well. There have been pictures taken by others which you can find on the net of orange, golden and pink orbs as well. Orbs are seen at spiritual gatherings, cemeteries, clairvoyant meetings, parties, psychedelic trance gatherings and almost everywhere you feel good positive vibrations all around !

Alcatel-Lucent today announced that scientists in Bell Labs, the company's research arm, have set a new optical transmission record of more than 100 Petabits per second.kilometer (equivalent to 100 million Gigabits per second. kilometer). This transmission experiment involved sending the equivalent of 400 DVDs per second over 7,000 kilometers, roughly the distance between Paris and Chicago. This is the highest capacity ever achieved over a transoceanic distance and represents an increase that exceeds that of today's most advanced commercial undersea cables by a factor of ten. To achieve these record-breaking results the Bell Labs researchers made innovative use of new detection techniques and harnessed a diverse array of technologies in modulation, transmission, and signal processing.

We're one-tenth human --- Rest of the body is a swarm of foreign microbes http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/local/were-one-tenth-human-59601992.html
WASHINGTON -- Scientists are beginning a large-scale effort to identify and analyze the vast majority of cells in or on your body that aren't of human origin.Only about 10 per cent of the trillions of cells that make up a person are truly human, researchers say. The other 90 per cent are bacteria, viruses and other microbes swarming in your gut and on your skin."We really are a superorganism," Brett Finlay, a microbiologist at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, said in an email. "From the moment we are born until we die, we live in a symbiotic relationship with our microbes.""At birth, babies emerge from a sterile environment into one that is laden with microbes," said Laurie Comstock, a microbiologist at Harvard Medical School in Boston. "The infant's intestines then rapidly become home to one of the densest populations of bacteria on Earth."Most of these microbes are harmless, researchers say. Many are necessary to life and health. A troublesome minority, however, can cause everything from teenage acne and obesity to autism and cancer. The National Institutes of Health has launched a $115-million, five-year project to identify, analyze and catalog hundreds of microbial species resident in or on the human body. Called the Human Microbiome Project, it's modelled after the Human Genome Project, which decoded most of the human genes in the 1990s. CLIP
Why $200 Oil Is Just Around the Corner http://www.rigzone.com/news/article.asp?a_id=80044
Jeff Rubin believes that oil prices are going to escalate much higher. In his book Why Your World is About to Get a Whole Lot Smaller, Rubin foretells $200 oil and a vastly transformed global economic picture coming into focus very soon. The premise of Rubin's book is that oil is a finite resource and so-called "easy" oil is waning. Inevitably production will be unable to keep up with the growing demand worldwide, and the price of oil will skyrocket. The chief economist at CIBC World Markets in Canada for 20 years, Rubin correctly predicted the price of oil reaching $50 in 2005 and $100 in 2007. No one believed him then, either. CLIP

Poll: Two Thirds Of Parents Will Not Vaccinate Kids With H1N1 Shot (Oct 1, 2009) http://www.prisonplanet.com/poll-two-thirds-of-parents-will-not-vaccinate-kids-with-h1n1-shot.html
Fear over lack of testing, possible side effects cited in survey -- A survey conducted by a leading consumer watchdog group has found that the vast majority of parents in the U.S. say they will not vaccinate their children against H1N1 flu, citing concerns over the safety of the vaccine. The results of the poll have been published by the independent, nonprofit organization Consumers Union in their magazine Consumer Reports, one of the top-ten-circulation magazines in the country. Almost two thirds of respondents to the poll stated that they would either refuse the vaccine outright or wait for more information before considering vaccinating their children. Exactly 50% said that they would hold off on immunizing their kids due to concerns about possible side effects of the vaccine and worries over whether it has been tested enough. A further 14% of parents ruled out vaccination altogether as an option. 43% of the parents said that they were not worried about their children catching swine flu, and an equal amount said they felt other parents were overreacting. 35% of respondents said that they would definitely vaccinate their children.Consumers Union, which has been in operation for over seventy years and has offices in Washington, D.C. and Austin, Texas, surveyed 1,502 adults by telephone over a five day period last month. The Group has recommended that parents consider immunizing their children against swine flu this Fall. The results of this survey come in the wake of others that found the majority of doctors and health care workers would also refuse to be vaccinated over safety concerns, as well as half of all pregnant women. As we have previously reported, Pandemrix, the H1N1 vaccine manufactured by GlaxoSmithKilne for use in the U.S. and the U.K., contains both the novel adjuvant squalene, which has been linked to Gulf War Syndrome, and thimerosal, the mercury based preservative that some scientists have testified is a cause of autism. In addition, the European Medicines Agency states on its pandemic website that there is no clinical experience in the elderly, in children or in adolescents with Pandemrix. Authorisation was fast tracked for the vaccine based on research using mock up bird flu (H5N1) vaccines dating from 2007 and 2008. The vaccine is now being given to children as young as six months in the U.S. and the U.K., along with a rival vaccine produced by Novartis in the U.S., and another produced by Baxter in the U.K.Medical observers are watching closely to determine which vaccine produces the least side effects. The vaccines have been rushed through safety procedures while the government has provided pharmaceutical companies with blanket immunity from lawsuits arriving out of the vaccine causing deaths and injuries.

H1N1 vaccine far from foolproof (October 02, 2009) http://www.hindustantimes.com/H1N1-vaccine-far-from-foolproof/H1-Article1-460326.aspx
As India goes into overdrive to have indigenous H1N1 or swine flu vaccines ready by April 2010, there comes a warning from the US: not only does the new vaccine have the usual side effects associated with flu vaccines, it may also not provide good protection to most of the high-risk groups. The packaging inserts for H1N1 vaccines on the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) website say the vaccines can cause Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS), a paralysing disorder. GBS was one of the side effects of the swine flu vaccine that reportedly killed 25 people in the US in 1976. The USFDA website inserts by manufacturers Novartis, CSL, Sanofi Pasteur and Med-Immune LLC say the H1N1 vaccines are less effective in high-risk groups such as the elderly and those with HIV, cancer, or people whove had an organ transplant. Its safety and effectiveness in pregnant women, nursing mothers and children below 4 years has also not been established.Manufacturers Novartis, Glaxo SmithKline, Baxter, and Sanofi Pasteur have agreed to do trials in India but are waiting for guarantee of purchase. India has reported 10,233 cases of H1N1, and 315 deaths.
Why We Worry about Vaccines (October 1, 2009) http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jim-moore/why-we-worry-about-vaccin_b_306202.html
Even as doctors try to reassure the public, and TV news anchors get their swine flu shots on the morning news, there remains a great unease about vaccinations in the US. People hesitant to take the needle are marginalized as anti-vaccine nuts, regardless of the many justifiable reasons to distrust giant pharmaceutical producers and government regulators. Money can easily trump morality and the five drug companies contracted with the U.S. government to produce the H1N1 vaccines will be paid from $250 to $690 million each for mass production. Profits are not evil, of course, and making money does not mean a company lacks principle. There are, however, causes for concern. The last time there was a mass vaccination attempt of this scale was the 1976 National Influenza Vaccination Program for swine flu. Vaccinations were suspended when 1,098 people suffered from Guillain-Barré syndrome, a disorder that causes the body's immune system to attack parts of the nervous system. There was a 1 in 100,000 rate of occurrence. Although we must assume vaccines have improved considerably in the intervening years, the insert on the Novartis swine flu vaccine being administered this fall lists Guillain-Barré as a possible side effect. The public's wariness about pharmaceutical companies did not suddenly arise. Distrust is a product of consistent deception ranging from Merck's Vioxx debacle to the billions in fines paid by drug companies for marketing products "off label," which is a usage other than what has been approved by the FDA.

ALERT!! Swine Flu shot ALERT!!! (9/23/09) http://my.auburnjournal.com/detail/130369.html
The CDC has followed in the footsteps of British health authorities by warning neurologists to look out for cases of the nerve disease Guillain-Barre syndrome caused by the swine flu vaccine. Doctors in Britain were advised last month by the government to carefully track cases of the disease and report each one to the Health Protection Agency. A letter sent by 600 neurologists indicated that there is concern at the highest levels that the vaccine itself could cause serious complications, according to a Daily Mail report. According to a study released August 26, 2009 by the British Medical Journal, more than half of Hong Kong's healthcare workers surveyed said they would refuse the H1N1 shot, which is not yet available, because they are afraid of side effects and doubt how safe and effective it will be. According to Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, your children should be the first target for mass swine flu vaccinations when school starts this fall. If children are the first target group in the U.S. per Sebelius, that means were about to inject around 75 million children with a fast tracked vaccine containing novel adjuvants, including dangerous squalene, to prevent perhaps 100 deaths. This is a ridiculous assumption for many reasons, not to mention extremely high risk. Your immune system recognizes squalene as an oil molecule native to your body. It is found throughout your nervous system and brain. In fact, you can consume squalene in olive oil and not only will your immune system recognize it, you will also reap the benefits of its antioxidant properties. The difference between good and bad squalene is the route by which it enters your body. Injection is an abnormal route of entry which incites your immune system to attack all the squalene in your body, not just the vaccine adjuvant. Your immune system will attempt to destroy the molecule wherever it finds it, including in places where it occurs naturally, and where it is vital to the health of your nervous system. CLIP
State, local hospitals not requiring H1N1 vaccine for health care workers (October 2, 2009) http://www.commercialappeal.com/news/2009/oct/02/mandated-flu-shots-resisted/
As health care workers worldwide mount protests against mandated seasonal or H1N1 influenza vaccinations, Shelby County's largest medical institutions are not requiring the shots. Vaccination mandates by the New York Department of Health sparked protests by health care workers at the state capitol in Albany earlier this week, and protestors in London are gearing up for an anti-vaccination rally at the House of Lords this weekend.Many protestors believe the H1N1 vaccine was too hastily tested before it was mass produced and is an unfit treatment.Locally, the issue got hotter Thursday when an e-mail surfaced in which it was claimed that "the doctors at Baptist are advising that their staff and patients NOT get this vaccination. They have had several reports of people getting Guillain-Barre Syndrome." CLiP

But this year, with the expected return of the swine-flu virus, they are being required to get both seasonal flu and H1N1 vaccines. The swine-flu vaccines are expected to hit the market in the coming weeks. Many protesters are carrying home-made signs with sayings like, Were not lab rats and No flu shot no job". CLIP

Berlin : Last week Australian H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine Panvax Manufacturer Listed Guillian-Barre Syndrome as vaccine side effect. And now a German man who participated in H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine clinical trials has said that he became seriously ill as a consequence of theH1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine, according to reports in the German mainstream media.Axel Sch., a 40 year old man with a degree in business, enrolled for the swine flu clinical trials at Munichs Ludwig-Maximilians-University led by Dr Frank von Sonnenburg.After receiving an injection on August 10th he became seriously ill. The injection made me sick the test is irresponsible, he said. He felt the impact just a few hours after the injection, he said. I felt totally shattered. On the third day, I felt pain in my kidneys and head and I got a fever. Then I had a coughing fit and my washbasin was suddenly red. It was blood.Sonnenburg has denied the patients claims, but good clinical practice requires a doctor to include all the side effects, no matter how serious to avoid falsifying data. The failure of Sonnenburg to acknowledge the report of Axel Sch. raises serious questions about just how independent and valid the clinical study results on this new and untested vaccine material with adjuvant can be considered.

German anti corruption watchdog criticises key government vaccine body for links to big pharma http://www.fightbackh1n1.com/2009/09/german-anti-corruption-watchdog.html
Berlin : A German anti-corruption watchdog said on Monday that majority of members of a key German government vaccine advisory body have links with the pharmaceutical industry, and are being influenced by the pharmaceutical industry to recommend a "swine flu" mass vaccination campaign. Transparency International said that the pharmaceutical industry appears to be using the "swine flu" mass vaccination campaign to sell its drugs. It said the decision to implement a mass "swine flu" vaccination campaign was "not transparent". In particular, the group criticised the German government for failing to inform people about the "swine flu" mass vaccination campaign in 1976 the USA and the fact that it had to be abandoned because of deaths and injury due to the drug. Transparency International also criticised the European Medicines Agency, noting that two thirds of the funding it receives is from the pharmaceutical industry.
Vaccine Skepticism is in the Air - Some distrust government motives. (September 24, 2009) http://www.baltimoresun.com/health/sns-health-swine-flu-vaccine-skepticism,0,1208908.story
The nation's political crosscurrents appear to have created vaccine skeptics of many stripes.In a time when Americans are engaged in fierce debate over the federal government's role in their healthcare, many citizens are less inclined than ever to accept the warnings of the Department of Health and Human Services or the recommendations of its Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, says Sandra Quinn, a University of Pittsburgh public health professor who has just completed a national survey of attitudes about the flu vaccine. (...) The addition of adjuvants to vaccines offered in the United States would mean, in FDA parlance, that the vaccines would have an "emergency use authorization" from the FDA. A more qualified FDA blessing than full approval, an "emergency use authorization" would likely spark additional reluctance among parents who are already leaning against vaccine, said experts.While adjuvants have been used in vaccines in Europe for many years, the FDA has never approved them for widespread use in the United States. Some vaccine critics in Great Britain have charged that one adjuvant used in European formulations -- squalene -- is associated with a wide range of vague but persistent symptoms."My fear is that they've made this vaccine and that it's only a quick fix. I don't feel like they've taken enough time to develop it as far as they need to," says Susanne Stuart-Nystrom, a 37-year-old Venice resident and mother of a preschooler.

Epidemic Of Fever Phobia: The Facts On Why Fever Is Your Friend (Sept 30, 2009) http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dana-ullman/epidemic-of-fever-phobia_b_305615.html
Health and medical journalists are not presently providing the public with what might be the most important health advice that they should be given during the flu season: people with the flu should avoid taking fever-reducing drugs, such as aspirin or acetaminophen (aka TylenolTM), except in rare situations.It is widely recognized that fever is a vital defense of the body in its efforts to fight infection. A fever enables the body to increase its production of interferon, an important antiviral substance that is critical for fighting infection. Fever also increases white blood cell mobility and activity, which are instrumental factors in fighting infection. Jane Brody, a long-time respected health columnist for the New York Times, reported back in 1982 on the healing benefits of fever. She noted, a number of physicians, including pediatricians, are now suggesting that moderate fevers be allowed to run their course, for they may shorten the illness, potentiate the action of antibiotics and reduce the chances of spreading the infection to others. Recognition that fever is beneficial has been known for more than 2,000 years, and historically, the healing benefits of fever are so substantial that many patients have actually been treated with ''fever therapy'' to aid their recovery from such ailments as cancer, syphilis, tuberculosis and even mania. However, in the 1800's, aspirin compounds that rapidly reduced fevers became commercially available, and the medical view of fever changed dramatically. Since the mid-1800s, drug companies have successfully convinced conventional physicians and the general public to become vigilant in bringing down fevers, even sometimes using such drastic measures as cold baths and alcohol rubs along with aspirin.In reference to the flu and fever, the bottom line is that it makes little sense to aggressively suppress the body's natural defenses against viral infection. There are, of course, some exceptions here. For instance, it may make sense to seek medical care if one's fever is above 104 degrees for over six hours or in any fever in an infant under four months of age. Fever phobia is so rampant that many usually intelligent people, including physicians and medical reporters, forget what they know about the inherent defenses of the body when they become sick. CLIP

Military to get mandatory swine flu shots soon http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5g928uDiWtcnBFT28j5UfIeUXXuMQD9B1838G2
WASHINGTON U.S. military troops will begin getting required swine flu shots in the next week to 10 days, with active duty forces deploying to war zones and other critical areas going to the front of the vaccine line, a top military commander said Tuesday.Air Force Gen. Gene Renuart also told The Associated Press that as many as 400 troops are ready to go to five regional headquarters around the country to assist federal health and emergency management officials if needed as the flu season heats up.The Pentagon has bought 2.7 million vaccines, and 1.4 million of those will go to active duty military. National Guard troops on active duty are also required to receive the vaccine, as are civilian Defense Department employees who are in critical jobs.As a result, the military is expected to provide health officials with an early assessment of the vaccine."Because I can compel people to get the shots, larger numbers will have the vaccine," said Renuart, commander of U.S. Northern Command. "They will, as a percentage of the population, be vaccinated more rapidly than many of us. So we may see some objective results, good or not, of the vaccinations." (...) For the general population, the first swine flu vaccine should be in some doctors' offices as early as Oct. 5, according to U.S. health officials. The early batches will protect 6 million to 7 million people, but over time, the government expects to have a total of 250 million doses of the new vaccine. About 10 percent of that has been promised to other countries. Vaccine shipments will go directly to doctors, clinics and other providers designated by each state. According to the CDC, the swine flu is widespread in 26 states now, up from 21 a week ago. While the CDC doesn't have an exact count of swine flu deaths and hospitalizations, reports suggest the infection has caused more than 600 deaths and more than 9,000 hospitalizations.
Nano Particles used in Untested H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccines by F. William Engdahl (September 13, 2009) http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=15092
Vaccines which have been approved by the responsible government authorities for vaccination against the alleged H1N1 Influenza A Swine Flu have been found to contain nano particles. Vaccine makers have been experimenting with nanoparticles as a way to turbo charge vaccines for several years. Now it has come out that the vaccines approved for use in Germany and other European countries contain nanoparticles in a form that reportedly attacks healthy cells and can be deadly. (...) The fact that WHO, the European Medicines Evaluation Agency, the German Robert Koch Institute and other health bodies today would permit the population to be injected with largely untested novel vaccines containing nanoparticles says more about the powerful pharma lobby in Euiropean politics than it does about the sanity or moral integrity of the civil servants responsible for health of the general public.

WHO admits no deadly mutation of H1N1 Swine Flu (September 28, 2009) http://www.financialsense.com/editorials/engdahl/2009/0928.html
The World Health Organization, the UN agency (ir-) responsible for declaring a Phase 6 PANDEMIC global alert over what it calls H1N1 Influenza A or Swine Flu, whose chief Dr Margaret Chan has repeatedly warned that while Swine Flu to date had been rather mild, that the emergency declaration was necessary because it could mutate aggressively into a deadly pandemic killing millions, now admits well into the flu season in the Northern Hemisphere that H1N1 has apparently not mutated. (...) One source for the desired billion dollars for spreading untested H1N1 vaccines to the developing world will clearly be the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Over the past decade the Gates Foundation, the largest tax-exempt foundation in the United States since it pooled funds with fellow billionaire investor Warren Buffett, has put $1 billion into something called GAVI Alliance, formerly the Global Alliance for Vaccination and Immunization. (...) Ted Turner some years ago in an interview with a nominally Christian US magazine, defended his vision of a world of merely 225 million people.David Rockefeller and his brothers created the global movement to reduce population growth back in 1953 with the founding of the Population Council, one of the least known and most influential organizations in the world. Gates and Buffett are major funders of global population reduction programs, as is Turner. The programs in Africa and elsewhere are masked as philanthropy and providing health services for poor Africans. In reality they involve population sterilization via vaccination and other medicines that make women of child-bearing age infertile. The Gates Foundation, where Buffett deposited the bulk of his wealth two years ago, is also backing introduction of GMO seeds into Africa under the cloak of the Second Green Revolution in Africa. The introduction of GMO patented seeds in Africa to date has met with enormous indigenous resistance. Tellingly, health experts claim that were the intent of US philanthropists such as Gates really to improve the health and well-being of black Africans, the same millions invested in providing minimal sanitary water and sewage systems would revolutionize the health conditions of the Continent. Vaccinating a person who then goes to drink feces-polluted water is hardly healthy in any respect. Many organizations have concluded the true aim of the vaccinations is to make people sicker and even more susceptible to disease and death. CLIP

David and Goliath might be an appropriate title for this video. Because Jane Bürgermeister, as a committed Christian, possesses an almost unreasonable amount of courage in her single-handed stand - against what many perceive as being a giant that few people are equipped to fight. Jane is a young woman living in Vienna who, while working as a medical editor, was horrified to learn in early 2009 of the fiasco in which a Baxter International research facility in Orth-Donau, Austria, sent a quantity of human H3N2 viral material to 18 European laboratories. Such a supply of experimental material would have been totally normal - except that in this instance the H3N2 had been somehow contaminated with live H5N1... the far more lethal Avian Flu.As a medical editor, Jane immediately realized the import of what had happened - and what had nearly happened - and raised the alarm. But no-one in the Austrian media was interested. She then took matters into her own hands and filed legal charges against those who she considered the perpetrators to be.Very soon after, Jane was dismissed from her job without explanation. Undeterred, she sought support on the internet and continued her campaign. In the months since then she has attracted committed followers - and critics - all over the world. She is not alone in suspecting that there exists a literally diabolical plan which is nothing less than the genocide of potentially hundreds of millions of people worldwide. Project Camelot can understand how she has inspired many others to wake up and take action: it's a little harder to understand some of her critics. When we learned that a number of serious accusations had been leveled against her, the obvious thing to do was to seek her out and talk to her on camera - one of the things that Project Camelot is equipped to do best.So, this we have done. The result speaks for itself. We bring you the real Jane Bürgermeister: feisty, determined, passionate, articulate, and authentic. SHE URGES ORGANIZED CIVILIAN RESISTANCE TO THE VACCINE...

The Austrian reporter claims: the swine flu was created in order to eliminate huge numbers of the population and attain global control! -- I have filed criminal charges in Austria against Baxter and Avir Green Hills Biotechnology for producing and distributing contaminated bird flu vaccine material this winter, alleging that this was a deliberate act to cause a pandemic, and also to profit from that pandemic this is the beginning of the charges raised by Austrian reporter Jane Burgermeister on April 8 at the Vienna State Attorney's Office. She stated her reasons on her blog, including suspicions that Baxter and Avir have been developing biochemical weapons in co-operation with the so-called Illuminati or the Bilderberg group. Biggest crime in the history of mankind - Jane Burgermeister went a step further: warning that the biggest crime in history of mankind was on the verge, she has decided to file criminal charges at the American FBI against the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations and several high government and pharmaceutical responsible for vaccines, with charges of planning mass murder. Furthermore, the reporter will request a court ban of mandatory vaccination against the swine flu. According to Burgermeister, bioterrorism is promoted by a group of U.S. bankers who control Federal reserves, as well as WHO, UN and NATO. The group of conspirators has also infiltrated the very pinnacle of the American state. (...) USA would be the first cleansed country -- The reporter claims that the American government has systematically been introducing measures since 2008, intended for cutting back constitutional freedoms so that when the time comes, they can conduct mandatory vaccination. The media play a part as well, convincing people of the seriousness of the swine flu, announcing the vaccination. Finally, what the group which has spurred a food of conspiracies, is trying to achieve, is control over North America in order to exploit its natural resources without any obstacles. Later on, the similar process will take place all over the world, according to prognosis.Are statements of some of the accused men a month after Burgermeister's initiative hints of her claims being true?

How do they know? Is the return of this virus or a variant of it going to be a PLANNED OUTBREAK? 2) The commentators are literally telling people "be very afraid". To heighten this fear-mongering, the media is hyping the planned military participation in the "pandemic response", and the implementation of mass quarantines and mandatory vaccinations (time index 2:14). 3) The forced vaccination plans target first-responders, care givers, mothers, children, teachers. Many medical professionals all over America who have been polled have stated that they will refuse the H1N1 vaccine on the grounds that vaccines are dangerous, particularly this one (see other videos on YT that confirm this). 4) Martial Law is openly referenced in the on-screen graph at 4:42, it shows military border closures between US states, thereby restricting travel. Never in American history have internal checkpoints been established, and if this is done the militias of the states will necessarily have to mobilize. 5) It is expected that 42 million people will be vaccinated by the beginning of November, but the possible deliberate withholding of the 160 million dose supply of vaccines, and other medical supplies and services this fall will further serve to create fear and panic, thus manufacturing the demand for a heightened government response.

Planning the H1N1 Flu Pandemic: Body Bags, Mass Graves, Quarantine Orders - Selected Evidence by Michel Chossudovsky (September 20, 2009) http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?aid=15307&context=va
An atmosphere of insecurity and fear is being created simultaneously in several countries in a global public health initiative under the auspices of the WHO. We are summarising selected reports on body bags, mass graves and quarantine orders. Swine flu is acknowledged to be milder than seasonal influenza. So what is the purpose of these initiatives? There is a consistent pattern. These reports raise serious questions as to the public health objectives of our governments, not to mention the WHO. The entire construct is politically motivated and corrupt. It serves the financial interests of the pharmaceutical industry. It justifies the militarization of public health and violates fundamental civil liberties.

China begins mass vaccinations for swine flu http://www.fightbackh1n1.com/2009/09/china-begins-mass-vaccinations-for.html
Beijing : China kicked off mass vaccinations for swine flu Monday in Beijing, making it apparently the first nation in the world to start innoculating its population against the virus.The Asian giant has been at the forefront of international efforts to produce an A(H1N1) influenza vaccine, with at least five companies receiving government approval for the work. Officials however have warned demand will exceed supply. The capital's municipal health bureau announced Monday in a statement on its website that Beijing "took the lead in China in starting A(H1N1) flu vaccinations". (...) Australia is to start a mass adult immunisation programme on September 30, while the United States has bought 195 million doses of swine flu vaccine and will make shots available next month. Britain, meanwhile, has received a first batch of 100,000 doses of swine flu vaccine, which could be approved for public distribution by early October.On Monday, China had recorded 13,262 cases of A(H1N1) flu, according to the latest information released on the health ministry's website. No deaths have yet been reported.A top ministry official predicted earlier this month that tens of millions of people could be infected with the virus in China in the coming months, leading to "unavoidable" fatalities. The virus has now spread to all of China's 31 provinces and regions and 95 percent of the cases are being transmitted domestically, rather than via travellers from abroad. By Friday, A(H1N1) flu had killed nearly 3,500 people worldwide, and while the Americas still have the highest death toll from the virus, cases are expected to increase in Asia as the northern hemisphere enters winter.

Bacteria Have Role in Swine Flu Deaths (Sept. 30, 2009) http://www.webmd.com/cold-and-flu/news/20090930/bacteria-have-role-in_swine-flu-deaths
Bacterial Infections Can Be Deadly for Some Patients With H1N1 Swine Flu - Bacterial infections play a major role in H1N1 swine flu deaths, the CDC warns.The swine flu bug can cause fatal pneumonia all by itself. But in a large number of cases it gets help from other deadly germs that take advantage of a weakened immune system and cause pneumonia. A CDC investigation into 77 U.S. swine flu deaths found that 22 of the victims -- 29% -- suffered from at least one bacterial co-infection. (...) Earlier CDC reports found that H1N1 swine flu deaths tended to be caused by direct infection of the lungs with the new flu bug. That may have caused doctors to let down their guard against bacterial infections in flu patients. That's a big mistake. Because very few bacterial infections can be detected with routine blood tests, the CDC now advises doctors who suspect bacterial infections in swine flu patients to treat them with anti-flu drugs and antibiotics.When flu takes a turn for the worse, it's important to seek medical care right away. The CDC report carries dramatic examples of H1N1 swine flu deaths with bacterial infections: A 2-month-old girl, with no known underlying condition, died with pneumococcal infection after an illness of only one day. A 9-year-old girl with no reported underlying condition died with a strep infection after an illness of six days. A 34-year-old man with high blood pressure and obesity died with pneumococcal infection after an illness of about three days. For the 17 patients whose length of illness was known, illness ranged from one to 25 days with a median duration of six days. CLIP
Don't Blame H1N1 Swine Flu Shots for All Ills, Officials Say (Sept 29, 2009) http://www.fightbackh1n1.com/2009/09/dont-blame-h1n1-swine-flu-shots-for-all.html
New York : As soon as swine flu vaccinations start next month, some people getting them will drop dead of heart attacks or strokes, some children will have seizures and some pregnant women will miscarry.But those events will not necessarily have anything to do with the vaccine. That poses a public relations challenge for federal officials, who remember how sensational reports of deaths and illnesses derailed the large-scale flu vaccine drive of 1976. This time they are making plans to respond rapidly to such events and to try to reassure a nervous public - and headline-hunting journalists - that the vaccine is not responsible.Officials are particularly worried about spontaneous miscarriages, because they are urging pregnant women to be among the first to be vaccinated. Pregnant women are usually advised to get flu shots, because they and their fetuses are at high risk of flu complications, but this year the pressure is greater. (...) Complicating the challenge for officials, some experts argue, is that health news coverage has suffered since 1976. Also, antivaccine activists (like us) are far more powerful now. Thirty-three years ago, vaccines were enthusiastically welcomed; many parents or grandparents still remembered children dead of smallpox, measles or polio. The minority opposing them were often followers of natural healing or traditional chiropractic beliefs. In 1976, autism was not on the public's mind, and the problem was still attributed to indifferent mothering. Vietnam veterans with chronic illnesses usually blamed Agent Orange, a defoliant. Today, many parents blame vaccines for their children's autism and some ill Gulf War veterans blame their anthrax shots. As even H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine Panvax Manufacturer "Listed Guillian-Barre Syndrome as vaccine side effect" Some antivaccine groups are raising fears of thimerosal, a preservative used in some brands of flu vaccine. Others issue dire warnings about squalene, an immune booster used in military vaccines and in some European flu vaccines but not in any American ones. New H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine Contains Adjuvants, European Medicines Agency. And, in the rancor over health insurance reform, unfounded rumors are spreading that the Obama administration will make swine flu shots mandatory. Administration officials have emphatically denied that. But a recent decision by New York State to make them mandatory for all hospital employees has reinvigorated those rumors on the Internet. To defend itself, Dr. Butler said, the C.D.C, has compiled data on how many problems like heart attacks, strokes, miscarriages, seizures and sudden infant deaths normally occur. And it has broken those figures down for various high-priority vaccine groups, like pregnant women or children with asthma. As Canada admits there is no data on the use of adjuvanted H1N1 Swine flu jabs on pregnant women. When vaccinations begin, it plans to gather reports from vaccine providers, hospitals and doctors, looking for signs of adverse events, so it can detect problems before rumors( or truth) grow.
Vaccines' Dark Inferno: What is not on insert labels? by Richard Gale and Dr Gary Null (September 29, 2009) http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=15452
(...) Roberts' account of conversations between high level members from the World Health Organizatioin (WHO), federal health agencies, and expert vaccine scientists, who determine whether or not a certain vaccine will be approved or not, is horrid. Her investigations are based on official meeting documents and her attendance at emergency vaccine meetings, and confirm that our world's vaccine and health experts agree there is no solution in sight to resolve the potential and uncertain threats posed by these hidden ingredients. The story begins with the vaccine industrial complex's attempt to reduce vaccine manufacturing costs by seeking government approval to use cancerous cell lines in the development of vaccines. Vaccine industry's rationale is that cancerous cells are "immortal." (...) Conversations focused primarily on the influenza, MMR and yellow fever vaccines, which rely on fertilized chicken eggs for their culturing viruses. Fertilized chicken eggs, while ideally suited for culturing certain viruses for vaccines, such as the influenza and MMR vaccines, are also living incubators for large numbers of known and unknown viruses in the animal kingdom. While these do not transmit from their animal host to humans naturally, they nevertheless are sequential genetic codes, which when injected into the human body, have the potential for any number of unpredictable adverse effects by interfering or merging with the codes of human cells. Vaccine research is at best a primitive science because it is injecting into the blood stream foreign substances, chemical and genetic, that would otherwise not enter the body naturally. When we include into the equation the enormous amount of known and unknown genetic material and foreign proteins that vaccines introduce into the body, and then consider the rapid increase in epidemics raging across the American population-adult diabetes in children, large numbers of various inflammatory and immune deficiency diseases, asthma and new allergies, severe gastro-intestinal disorders (eg., leaky gut syndrome and Crohn's Disease), chronic fatigue syndrome, and many different neurological disorders (eg., autism, ADD and ADHD, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, etc.)-we must step back and reconsider their causes. We should avoid the kind of faith the vaccine industrial complex has in its determinist, reductionist perspective of genetic materialism to find these answers without taking into account the bombardment of toxic chemicals such as vaccine adjuvants and preservatives, extraneous genetic material, and pathogenic organisms and foreign genetic fragments that we assault our bodies from shortly after birth into old age. (...) The conclusion that can be drawn from these meetings convened by our national and international health officials in vaccine science and safety is that vaccines are virtually genetic experiments, capability of causing mass cellular destruction, being injected into the world's population, especially children. There remain so many unanswered questions about vaccine science. This includes the forthcoming swine flu vaccines that will include the contaminants mentioned above, if we take any of these meeting attendees' words to heart. CLIP
Does virus vaccine increase the risk of cancer? http://www.bild.de/BILD/news/bild-english/world-news/2009/08/07/swine-flu-health-expert-warning/does-virus-vaccine-increase-risk-of-cancer.html
The swine flu vaccine has been hit by new cancer fears after a German health expert gave a shock warning about its safety. -- Lung specialist Wolfgang Wodarg has said that there are many risks associated with the vaccine for the H1N1 virus. He has grave reservations about the firm Novartis who are developing the vaccine and testing it in Germany. The vaccination is injected with a very hot needle, Wodarg said. The nutrient solution for the vaccine consists of cancerous cells from animals and "we do not know if there could be an allergic reaction". But more importantly, some people fear that the risk of cancer could be increased by injecting the cells. The vaccine - as Johannes Löwer, president of the Paul Ehrlich Institute, has pointed out - can also cause worse side effects than the actual swine flu virus.Wodrag also described peoples fear of the pandemic as an "orchestration": It is great business for the pharmaceutical industry, he told the Neuen Presse.Swine flu is not very different from normal flu. On the contrary if you look at the number of cases it is nothing compared to a normal flu outbreak, he added. The chairman of the health committee in the European Council has urged for a careful and calm reaction to the virus. Up until now, the producers of the vaccine did not know how many orders they would have by the autumn, but the German Government is now a guaranteed customer. Even the pharmaceutical companies are trying to exploit the fear of the swine flu pandemic.
Microbiologist Warns of Vaccine-Created Illnesses (Video) http://www.brasschecktv.com/page/659.html
Can vaccines cause chronic illnesses? Dr. Garth Nicholson, microbiologist and director of the Institute for Molecular Medicine, says yes. The government doesn't require vaccine makers to test for certain biological contaminants and pharmaceutical companies certainly don't volunteer. Because the vast majority of physicians are unaware of this common source of chronic illness they don't test for it or have protocols to treat it. I imagine most doctors, after taking their fees, tell patients suffering from these illnesses that it's "all in their heads."
Will Americans Obey Government Orders During a Swine Flu Pandemic? http://www.fightbackh1n1.com/2009/09/will-americans-obey-government-orders.html
New York : The University of Virginia health department , which is closely affiliated to Jay Rockefeller, is trying to figure out if the Rockefeller-controlled corporate media has managed to hoodwink enough Americans to go along with their own demise by conducting a survey on whether they would submit to forced swine flu vaccines and quarantines. Local authorities are keen to know whether American citizens will obey the government in the event of an H1N1 pandemic and take the swine flu vaccine, amidst growing fears of quarantines and forced injections that have been circulating in recent weeks. Every sign points to the fact that health authorities are preparing mass vaccination programs and quarantines that could be instituted should the H1N1 virus make a deadlier comeback, which has been all but guaranteed by U.S. health authorities as well as the WHO. Part of those preparations include gauging the potential reaction of Americans to unpopular orders dictated by an increasingly distrusted government. How many citizens will follow orders to stay indoors, evacuate or take a shot? Some of those questions form part of a survey being conducted by the University of Virginia's health department targeting everyone except "federal government agencies and their employees," who "are not qualified respondents for the survey target population," according to an advisory sent with the survey. The survey was forwarded to us by a reader who is part of a CEO-only networking group called MindShare in the Washington DC. (...) This survey is clearly part of a national effort on behalf of authorities to gauge how Americans will react to being ordered around by a federal government that citizens are increasingly suspicious of in light of increasing awareness about the dangers of the swine flu vaccine and an understanding of what happened during the government's last attempt to enforce a mass vaccination program for swine flu during the 1976 debacle, when the vaccine killed more people than the actual virus. Unfortunately for the people tasked with carrying out any such forced vaccination program, 150 million American gun owners are not going to respond nicely to people who want to inject their children with mercury, squalene and other deadly additives that are admitted to be contained in the H1N1 shot now being rolled out. For their sake, and for the sake of preventing anarchy and widespread violence, we need health authorities to come out publicly and state clearly and vehemently that no such mandatory vaccination effort will take place. Until that happens, fears about what the government is planning behind closed doors in relation to swine flu will only persist and become stronger.
Side effect fears spur docs to reject swine flu vax (August 26, 2009) http://www.fiercevaccines.com/story/side-effect-fears-spur-docs-reject-swine-flu-vax/2009-08-26
With the fall flu season looming, government officials in the U.S. and around the world have been scrambling to lay their hands on as much new swine flu vaccine as they can, as fast as they can. Billions of dollars are being made in one of the biggest bonanzas ever seen on the vaccine front. But signs are beginning to appear that suggest the supply may quickly beat the demand.Case in point: A new survey in Hong Kong shows that more than half of all healthcare workers--the prime target of every plan regarding early inoculation--will turn it down. Only 48 percent of these first responders, including doctors and nurses, said they would allow themselves to be vaccinated. And fear of serious side effects is the primary cause of rejection. CLIP
List Of USA States Which Have Implemented Legal Actions In Response To The H1N1 virus http://www.fightbackh1n1.com/2009/09/h1n1-swine-flu-list-of-usa-states-which.html
New York : According to the CDC, the following states have implemented legal actions in response to the H1N1 virus:Florida - the Florida surgeon general suspended distribution permit requirements Florida statutes to allow wholesale distribution of Tamiflu and Relenza. The state has also distributed a series of blank quarantine order forms, including a voluntary home quarantine agreement, a quarantine to residence order, a quarantine to residence order (non-compliance), a quarantine to facility order, quarantine detention order, quarantine of facility order, building quarantine closure order and area quarantine closure order.Iowa - In addition to the facility quarantine order listed above, Iowa has also made available forms for voluntary home confinement, home quarantine and home isolation.Massachusetts - Massachusetts lists its own procedures for isolation and quarantine.North Carolina - The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services released a draft isolation order that would provide for imprisonment for up to two years and pretrial detention without bail for any citizen who fails to comply with an isolation order.Washington - Washington grants authority to local health officers to issue emergency detention orders causing citizens to be immediately and involuntarily isolated or quarantined for up to 10 days.In addition, governors and health commissioners in the following states have declared a state of emergency since April following concerns about the H1N1 virus: California, Florida, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin. Clearly this has nothing to do with public health and the qualitative ethical practice of medicine. What about all the people who already had swine flu? Those people, who have already built natural immunity, if forced to quarantine in close quarters with a bunch of other people who may have other types of infectious diseases such as seasonal flu, etc., then become exposed to other infectious diseases and are at greater health risk. This seems like a great plan to help SPREAD whatever disease(s) they want to spread!

Jean-Pierre Petit advises parents to keep their children at home to avoid mobile "pandemic vaccination teams" entering schools and giving children the "swine flu" jab outside the control by family doctors.He said : I have received information from DOM-TOM where the French military are saying that they have received orders without any equivocation: forced vaccination, demonstrators to be put under lock and key. All this will happen in months, or even weeks to come. You have seen the guidelines laid down by the duo of Bachelot - Hortefeux. When the vaccination campaign starts, mobile teams, freed from all medical advice from family doctors, will go into schools directly to operate. Which is tantamount to saying that if the parents have any doubts about the nature of this campaign and want their children to escape the vaccine, they should keep them safe at home. Source
Swine flu prompts changes to Mental Health Act (23rd September 2009) http://www.managementinpractice.com/default.asp?title=SwineflupromptschangestoMentalHealthAct&page=article.display&article.id=18628
The government plans to rush through measures allowing people with suspected mental health issues to be quickly detained because of fears over staff shortages in any forthcoming swine flu outbreak, it has been revealed.The temporary changes to the Mental Health Act, as laid out in an unusually short consultation lasting just one month, would mean it would only take one doctor, rather than two, to have a person sectioned and put on medication without their consent. The measures could have a serious effect on the thousands of patients with psychiatric issues who currently live outside state care, meaning many could be detained against their will on the word of just one health professional. With very little information on the proposed changes published, many mental health experts have warned the government that they risk side-lining an already vulnerable community and have called on it to spell-out the full raft of changes proposed in the consultation. CLIP -- READ THE MANY COMMENTS THERE! SUCH as... "Dee Nicholson has it right. As soon as they can classify refusing the vaccination as purposefully harming yourself it will be administered to you while you wear the very latest fashion in very long sleeved jackets" - Colin Rose, South Australia -- "Wow, so anyone who has ever seen a counsel, therapist, psychologist, or doctor for any depression stress, has a history of mental illness and now can be detained with just one doctor's consult? Tell me if there isn't any opportunity for abuse of powers here" - Beth, location withheld -- "Absolutely not, especially if these authorities redefine 'mental illness' to include being opposed to the government's official stories about the swine flu.

Swine flu pandemic is set to explode (24.08.2009) http://www.bild.de/BILD/news/bild-english/world-news/2009/08/21/swine-flu-pandemic/grim-who-warning-h1n1-virus-outbreak-set-to-explode.html
The swine flu pandemic is set to become much worse after a grim warning that the outbreak will explode. - According to the World Health Organization, cases of the H1N1 virus will increase dramatically over the coming months. In many countries the number of new cases could double every three to four days, the WHOs Western Pacific director Shin Young Soo said. At a certain point, there will seem to be an explosion in case numbers. It is certain there will be more cases and more deaths, he told a meeting of health experts in Beijing. Shin urged governments to take urgent measures. He expects poorer countries whose health systems are not prepared for an epidemic to be particularly badly hit by the deadly virus. Swine flu has already been declared a global pandemic by the WHO - even since last week 1,800 new cases have been reported. Could the virus mix with the deadly bird flu, which caused a worldwide panic in 2005-06, to become even more dangerous? Experts fear the worst. In Chile authorities have found swine flu in turkeys. The outbreak near the port town of Valparaisois is under control and measures have been taken to stop it spreading to humans, said the agricultural ministry. Valparaiso is just 120 kilometres from the capital of Santiago. But what can be done to combat swine flu? In the face of a mass immunisation programme several medical associations have warned of possible side effects. They are particularly concerned of the effect the vaccine could have on risk groups such as pregnant women and severely ill patients. A mass vaccination programme is due to start in Germany in the autumn.
Vaccination H1N1 : méfiance des infirmières (Le 27 septembre 2009) http://www.mondialisation.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=15402
Notre devoir d'infirmières est d'informer correctement la population, pour que chacun prenne sa décision en toute connaissance de cause, par un consentement libre et éclairé, et non par une campagne de publicité et des discours alarmistesLe syndicat des infirmières SNPI CFE-CGC estime qu'une vaccination massive contre un virus grippal relativement bénin, présente des risques, du fait d'un vaccin développé trop rapidement, et d'un adjuvant susceptible de déclencher des maladies auto-immunes.Nous invitons la population à se vacciner contre la grippe saisonnière : ce vaccin (réalisé dans des conditions normales) sera disponible dès la quatrième semaine de septembre. Cela permettra de réaliser rapidement un diagnostic différentiel en cas de syndrome grippal. Par contre, chacun doit bien mesurer le rapport bénéfice/risques du vaccin H1N1 : d'un côté une semaine de grippe, de l'autre une probabilité, faible mais définitive, d'avoir une maladie neurologique (Syndrome Guillain-Barré) ou auto-immune.Comme nos collègues infirmières de Grande Bretagne et de Hong Kong, nous craignons que le remède risque d'être pire que le mal, et nous pensons qu'il faut savoir "raison garder". (...) Problèmes de l'adjuvant du vaccin H1N1Un adjuvant est une substance chimique qui est utilisée pour rendre le vaccin plus efficace et qui peut permettre d'utiliser une dose d'antigènes plus faible. La question est de savoir l'impact que pourrait avoir un nouvel adjuvant sur les maladies auto-immunes qui sont justement causées par un dérèglement du système immunitaire. Un adjuvant, le AS03 utilisé pour le vaccin préparé par GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), permet d'utiliser de très faibles doses d'antigène, multipliant ainsi le nombre de doses possibles. Le système de surveillance qui sera en place devra garantir que les personnes qui ont une maladie auto-immune (diabète, hypothyroidie, arthrite, sclérose en plaques, etc.) ne verront pas leur problèmes s'aggraver.Le vaccin H1N1 contient 10 fois moins d'antigène (pour accélérer la production, vu les quantités à produire rapidement) grâce à la présence de l'adjuvant AS03, un amplificateur d'effet qui consiste en un mélange de squalène et de polysorbate. Un tel adjuvant n'a jamais été utilisé auparavant dans un vaccin commercialisé à large échelle, et peut donc déclencher des réactions immunitaires excessives et augmenter la probabilité et la fréquence d'effets secondaires rares, mais graves et dangereux, tels que le syndrome de Guillain-Barré. Les additifs et adjuvants peuvent influencer la sécurité des vaccins de façon complètement imprévisible, comme on l'a vu par exemple avec le vaccin anti-méningo-enchéphalite à tiques TICOVAC, qui a dû être retiré du marché en 2001, 14 mois à peine après son lancement, pour cause d'effets secondaires graves et fréquents. (...) Le passage des essais cliniques à l'administration systématique est une phase particulièrement sensible dans l'utilisation des médicaments. S'il a des effets secondaires inattendus, ceux-ci peuvent affecter un nombre très important de personnes avant qu'on puisse faire marche arrière. La vaccination immédiate de dizaines de millions de personnes par un vaccin peu testé est inquiétante : c'est une expérimentation grandeur nature. La stimulation du système immunitaire par trois doses de vaccin antigrippal en quelques semaines est une nouveauté : la grippe saisonnière en septembre, puis deux doses de vaccin anti-pandémique adjuvanté à trois semaines d'intervalle.

Gore Vidal: Well have a dictatorship soon in the US (September 30, 2009) http://women.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/women/the_way_we_live/article6854221.ece
The grand old man of letters Gore Vidal claims America is rotting away and dont expect Barack Obama to save it (...) Last year he famously switched allegiance from Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama during the Democratic nomination process for president. Now, he reveals, he regrets his change of heart. Hows Obama doing? Dreadfully. I was hopeful. He was the most intelligent person weve had in that position for a long time. But hes inexperienced. He has a total inability to understand military matters. Hes acting as if Afghanistan is the magic talisman: solve that and you solve terrorism.America should leave Afghanistan, he says. Weve failed in every other aspect of our effort of conquering the Middle East or whatever you want to call it. The War on Terror was made up, Vidal says. The whole thing was PR, just like weapons of mass destruction. (...) Vidal originally became pro-Obama because he grew up in a black city (meaning Washington), as well as being impressed by Obamas intelligence. But he believes the generals. Even Bush knew the way to win a general was to give him another star. Obama believes the Republican Party is a party when in fact its a mindset, like Hitler Youth, based on hatred religious hatred, racial hatred. When you foreigners hear the word conservative you think of kindly old men hunting foxes. Theyre not, theyre fascists.Another notable Obama mis-step has been on healthcare reform. He f***ed it up. I dont know how because the country wanted it. Well never see it happen. As for his wider vision: Maybe he doesnt have one, not to imply he is a fraud. He loves quoting Lincoln and theres a great Lincoln quote from a letter he wrote to one of his generals in the South after the Civil War. I am President of the United States. I have full overall power and never forget it, because I will exercise it. Thats what Obama needs a bit of Lincolns chill. CLIP
U.S. troops call Afghan region 'Vietnam without napalm' (September 30, 2009) http://www.mcclatchydc.com/226/story/76330.html
(...) Neumann said that a "perfect storm" of factors has bolstered the Taliban in the Arghandab. They include a successful spring insurgency campaign, the death of a strong tribal leader who supported the U.S.-backed Afghan government and the wounding of a charismatic police chief.The Americans are up against a foe who's adept at creating unforeseen hazards. Often the Taliban fill large yellow water jugs with explosives packing some underneath road culverts and burying others in the sandy desert soil.Some battalion solders perished when their Strykers hit roadside bombs known as IED's or improvised explosive devices and others were killed by bombs that exploded while they patrolled on foot. On a single deadly day in August, a Bravo Company 1st lieutenant on a patrol had both his legs blown off by a mine, and explosions killed two soldiers temporarily attached to the unit as they walked through the green zone.Civilian casualties also have climbed. IED's set by insurgents have blown up many. Villagers claim that other civilians have died or been injured in crossfires when U.S. forces and their Afghan allies fight insurgents. CLIP
US Census Bureau report: 40 million living in poverty (September 30, 2009) http://www.infowars.com/us-census-bureau-report-40-million-living-in-poverty/
The overall poverty rate in the US rose to 13.2 percent in 2008, as workers across all sectors of the economy became jobless and increasing numbers of families were forced into destitution, according to a new government report. Real median household income also declined by 3.6 percent.The report released Tuesday, part of the US Census Bureaus American Community Survey, is the most recent to measure the recessions impact on working class families and the poor. Based on the changes between 2007 and 2008, the first full year of the recession, its findings do not reflect increases in poverty and joblessness this year as the consequences of the crisis have become even more acute.The official poverty rate of 13.2 percent in 2008 was up from 12.5 percent in 2007. This figure translates into 39.8 million people in poverty across America. The official poverty level is set at $22,000 annually for a family of four with two children or $12,000 for an individual, an absurdly low threshold. This means that far more people than indicated by the survey do not have adequate resources to pay for food, shelter, medical care and other basic necessities. CLIP
Hate Crimes Escalate Against Homeless People: Bumfight Videos (September 29, 2009) http://dailycensored.com/2009/09/29/hate-crimes-escalate-against-homeless-people-bumfight-videos/
Vulnerable homeless people are the targets of increasing violence in America and California has one of the highest rates of attacks against people forced to live on the streets. The Street Spirit newspaper tells readers: Since 1999, more than 240 vulnerable homeless Americans have been stabbed, beaten, drowned, shot or burned to death in a revolting display of one of the last socially tolerated prejudices, this one based on class. Youth in the United States are being influenced to commit crimes against homeless people with a dangerous subculture against the most unprotected in society where violent crimes are most tolerated by authorities targeting people without shelter. The videos feature apparently unprovoked attacks on homeless people that are caught on video, by what are being called thrill offenders, young toughs seeking to lash out against victims. These violent and degrading videos are sold for the pleasure of young males that are known in popular culture as Bumfights named after a popular video series. Hundreds of thousands of tapes and DVDs, or internet sites like Youtube have been viewed. A generation of young people has been exposed to Reality TV shows, Funniest Home Video episodes (which often feature people striking each other accidentally) or the ubiquitous World Federation of Wrestling programming whose main element is routines of simulated violence. Now producers appear to be are encouraging acts of violence against people forced to live on the streets or they are exploiting videos that have come into their possession; encouraging a new phenomena which is bringing a new low to US culture. In a dozen states legislation has been proposed to add homeless status to hate-crime laws.
Manila in 'state of calamity' (September 29, 2009) http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=15448
MANILA-Many Filipinos managed to save only the clothes on their backs but began to rebuild yesterday as the waters receded from a tropical storm that set off the worst flooding in the Philippine capital in 42 years.With the death toll at 83 and at least 23 others missing, army troops, police and civilian volunteers plucked dead bodies from muddy flood waters and rescued drenched survivors from rooftops after Tropical Storm Ketsana tore through the northern Philippines a day earlier. Some residents began to clean up as the flood waters receded. Still, many parts of the capital remained flooded. A brief period of sunshine showed the extent of the devastation in many neighbourhoods - destroyed houses, overturned vehicles, and roads covered in debris and mud. Ketsana dumped more than a month's worth of rain in just 12 hours, causing the government to declare a "state of calamity" in metropolitan Manila and 25 storm-hit provinces. The declaration allowed officials to use emergency funds for relief and rescue.The rains swamped entire towns and set off landslides. Garbage-choked drains and waterways, along with a high tide, compounded the flooding, officials said. (...) More than 330,000 people were affected by the storm, including 59,000 people who were brought to about 100 schools, churches and other evacuation shelters, officials said. Troops, police and volunteers have so far been able to rescue more than 5,100 people, Defence Secretary Gilbert Teodoro said. The 42.4 centimetres of rain that swamped Manila in just 12 hours Saturday exceeded the 39.2-centimetre average for all of September, chief government weather forecaster Nathaniel Cruz said. CLIP

Second Deadly Quake Strikes South Pacific (1 October 2009) http://www.truthout.org/100109H
More than 500 people are dead after a massive earthquake struck the city of Padang on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia on Wednesday. The quake, which registered 7.6 on the Richter scale, caused more than 500 structures to collapse, and thousands are feared to be trapped in the rubble. On Thursday morning, just as the airport in Padang reopened, a second quake struck, this time with a magnitude of 6.6. "Every building over three stories in Padang suffered damage from the initial quake," reported The New York Times on Thursday, "and the city's three main hospitals all collapsed. At the biggest hospital, Djamil, beds were pulled from the wreckage to serve the injured. Soon, however, all the mattresses were soaked in blood. Gloves, medicine bottles and bandages were strewn on the ground. Dozens of bodies were piled nearby, some clothed, some not, and weeping citizens searched the faces for missing relatives." CLIP

LONDON - About 4 million people are now getting AIDS drugs worldwide - a 10-fold jump in five years - but 5 million others are still in dire need of the medicine, U.N. health officials estimated in a report issued Wednesday. The figures represented a major increase in rolling out drugs to patients across Africa, where the AIDS epidemic is focused, even though they were based on incomplete data and modeling.They were released in an annual AIDS report jointly published by the World Health Organization, UNICEF and the U.N. AIDS program."Even though some of the data are not fully clear and there are some unanswered questions, this is a dramatic improvement," said Daniel Halperin, an AIDS expert at Harvard University. "It shows that all this money that has gone to treatment has made some difference."In 2008, officials estimated more than 4 million people were on AIDS drugs in low- and middle-income countries. The biggest increase was in sub-Saharan Africa, where nearly 3 million people are now on the drugs. Overall, about 44 percent of people with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa who need AIDS drugs are now taking them. In the U.S., about 71 percent of patients in need got AIDS drugs, according to 2003 data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. CLIP

John Holdren, director of the White House's Office of Science and Technology Policy, considered compulsory abortions and other Draconian measures to shrink the human population in a 1977 science textbook. President Obama's "science czar," John Holdren, once floated the idea of forced abortions, "compulsory sterilization," and the creation of a "Planetary Regime" that would oversee human population levels and control all natural resources as a means of protecting the planet -- controversial ideas his critics say should have been brought up in his Senate confirmation hearings.

Sep. 10- With hardly any debate, a powerful Senate committee Thursday approved President Barack Obama's $128 billion request for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan for the budget year beginning in October. The move came as anxiety is increasing on Capitol Hill over the chances for success in Afghanistan and as Obama weighs whether to send more forces to the country. The war funding was approved as the Appropriations Committee voted unanimously for a $636 billion spending measure funding next year's Pentagon budget. The war funding would implement Obama's order earlier this year to add 21,000 more troops to Afghanistan, which would bring the total number of U.S. forces there to 68,000 by the end of 2009. CLIP

It happened in the same week the American commander in Afghanistan, General Stanley McChrystal delivered a strategic assessment on the state of the war to Rasmussen and to Washington. It is known that one of its main thrusts was a change of emphasis from killing the Taliban to protecting civilians. Nato officers have been told that if they have Taliban fighters in their sights but there is a risk of civilian casualties they are to hold fire.

Blackwater: CIA Assassins? (August 20, 2009) http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2009/08/20-9
In April 2002, the CIA paid Blackwater more than $5 million to deploy a small team of men inside Afghanistan during the early stages of US operations in the country. A month later, Erik Prince, the company's owner and a former Navy SEAL, flew to Afghanistan as part of the original twenty-man Blackwater contingent. Blackwater worked for the CIA at its station in Kabul as well as in Shkin, along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, where they operated out of a mud fortress known as the Alamo. It was the beginning of a long relationship between Blackwater, Prince and the CIA. Now the New York Times is reporting that in 2004 the CIA hired Blackwater "as part of a secret program to locate and assassinate top operatives of Al Qaeda." According to the Times, "it is unclear whether the CIA had planned to use the contractors to capture or kill Qaeda operatives, or just to help with training and surveillance." CLIP

The company faces charges of human rights violations, child prostitution and possible supply of weapons to the Kurdistan Workers Party, an Iraqi group designated by United Nations, European Union and NATO as a terrorist organization.

Blackwater: Knights of Malta in Iraq (Oct 01, 2007) http://www.illuminati-news.com/2007/1014.html
Blackwater is more than just a private army, much more than just another capitalist war-profiteering business operation. It is an army operating outside all laws, outside and above the US Constitutionand yet is controlled by people within and outside our government whose allegiance is primarily to the foreign Vatican state. In other words, Blackwater is a religious army serving the Pope in Rome through the Order of Malta, which is itself considered under international law, as a sovereign entity with special diplomatic powers and privileges. Like Blackwater, the Order of Malta is untouchable because it is at the heart of the elite aristocracy. the Knights of Malta is not merely a charitable organization. Thats just an elaborate front, as should become clear to you later. As the name Sovereign Military Order of Malta confirms, it is a military order based on the crusader Knights Hospitaller of Jerusalem and is interwoven with Freemasonry. Most people have never even heard of SMOM, much less that it is a part of Freemasonry. But that is the way the aristocratic elite like it. (...) The Rothschilds and their agents, such as the Rockefellers, have been engineering America and its foreign policy almost since its inception. They and their Skull and Bones Wall Street partners staged and funded both sides in WWII, and out of that hellish nightmare was born their infant global government, the United Nations, and their tool of tyranny, the CIA. The father of the CIA, Wild Bill Donovan, was a Knight of Malta. In order to be a director of the CIA you must be a crusading Knight of Malta and it doesnt hurt if you are a member of Skull and Bones either. In order to reach the highest levels in the Pentagon establishment, you must be an illuminated Freemason and/or a Knight of one order or another. Notable US military members of SMOM include top crusading generals such as Alexander Haig, William Westmoreland, and Charles A. Willoughby, an admitted Fascist. Uther notable members include: (...) Such a list should make you sit up and pay attention, but it is only the tip of the iceberg unfortunately. Then we come to another SMOM member, important to what is transpiring in Iraq. Educated at the Jesuit Georgetown University, former Pentagon Inspector General Joseph Edward Schmitz, Blackwaters operations chief, is a member of both SMOM and Opus Dei. All the top Nazis in our government are connected in some way to the Vatican, Jesuits and Knights of Malta and have been for decades, as were the Italian Fascists and German Nazis of WWII. After all, what was their favorite symbol after the swastika? The Maltese Cross of course!These SMOM knights are behind most of the trouble in the world and they must be exposed as the criminals that they are. They are not nice people helping the poor, though they use good people in the lower ranks as useful idiots. They are behind drug-trafficking, assassinations, most wars, communism, fascism, feudalism, theocracy, Nazism, Zionism, globalization, crime-syndicates, major terrorist events, a new torture inquisition, total information surveillance, economic collapses, social demoralization and seek to completely enslave the human species in a global Big Brother totalitarian regime as they kill off the majority of us in the process. In fact, all of it has either come to pass or is in the process of being implemented. We are on the brink of WWIII which has been entirely staged by these profoundly evil men. Therefore, we have no time left for pussyfooting around.But dont take my word for it, do you your own research, find out and expose them yourself before these dirty Blackwater mercenary thugs are allowed to patrol American streets and confiscate guns during the next staged disaster.

Their numbers are equivalent to the entire British and American navies combined; their tonnage is far greater. Container ships, bulk carriers, oil tankers - all should be steaming fully laden between China, Britain, Europe and the US, stocking camera shops, PC Worlds and Argos depots ahead of the retail pandemonium of 2009.

'It is a much wider-spread situation that we have today. China was not a major player in the world economy at that time. Neither was India. We had the Soviet Union. We had shipbuilding in the United Kingdom and Europe. 'But then, back in those days the world was a very different place.'
The New Sputnik (September 26, 2009) http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/27/opinion/27friedman.html
Most people would assume that 20 years from now when historians look back at 2008-09, they will conclude that the most important thing to happen in this period was the Great Recession. Id hold off on that. If we can continue stumbling out of this economic crisis, I believe future historians may well conclude that the most important thing to happen in the last 18 months was that Red China decided to become Green China. Yes, Chinas leaders have decided to go green out of necessity because too many of their people cant breathe, cant swim, cant fish, cant farm and cant drink thanks to pollution from its coal- and oil-based manufacturing growth engine. And, therefore, unless China powers its development with cleaner energy systems, and more knowledge-intensive businesses without smokestacks, China will die of its own development.What do we know about necessity? It is the mother of invention. And when China decides it has to go green out of necessity, watch out. You will not just be buying your toys from China. You will buy your next electric car, solar panels, batteries and energy-efficiency software from China. I believe this Chinese decision to go green is the 21st-century equivalent of the Soviet Unions 1957 launch of Sputnik the worlds first Earth-orbiting satellite. That launch stunned us, convinced President Eisenhower that the U.S. was falling behind in missile technology and spurred America to make massive investments in science, education, infrastructure and networking one eventual byproduct of which was the Internet. Well, folks. Sputnik just went up again: Chinas going clean-tech. The view of China in the U.S. Congress that China is going to try to leapfrog us by out-polluting us is out of date. Its going to try to out-green us. Right now, China is focused on low-cost manufacturing of solar, wind and batteries and building the worlds biggest market for these products. It still badly lags U.S. innovation. But research will follow the market. Americas premier solar equipment maker, Applied Materials, is about to open the worlds largest privately funded solar research facility in Xian, China. CLIP
Are cellphones really safe for your kids? (22:22) http://www.cbc.ca/marketplace/2009/generation_cellphone/main.html
Can cellphone use cause brain tumours? Its a question that everyone has wondered about, yet there still isnt a clear answer. In the meantime, the cellphone has become an essential device. In Europe there are more cellphones than people, and in Canada, about 72% of the population actively uses a cellphone. Kids are part of those numbers as well. And they've got to have the latest cellphones some are made specifically for them, with optional designs for download like Disney characters and Hannah Montana. But its the parents who have to front the allowance money, so on top of kid-friendly phones, providers pitch peace of mind plans to parents, offering features like the ability to control who their kids can call. But if there are still unanswered health questions for adults, why are cellphones being marketed to kids? Thats a question Wendy Mesley wondered about, too. In Generation Cellphone, Wendy investigates the cellphones-for-kids phenomenon and uncovers new evidence about possible health risks for children who use cellphones on a long-term basis. Its a journey that ends in a presentation of our evidence to the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association. Youll want to hear what they have to say. MANY COMMENTS THERE INCLUDING: "It's misleading to say that cell phones emit low levels of radiation. Low levels in relation to what? There are no higher level sources of microwave radiation in the environment than the levels from a phone against the head, unless you're standing near a radar, radio/TV broadcast, or cell phone or cordless phone base station antenna, or have your head up to a microwave oven when it's on. These radiation levels are hundreds of millions of times what we evolved with, so how can anyone call them low? The wireless industry claims that if it isn't warming your brain tissue it can't do any harm, but the military has known for decades that microwaves can induce cataracts, Down's Syndrome in the children of exposed fathers, and male infertility, and the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, a part of NIH, acknowledged in its Research and Public Information Dissemination Report (RAPID) in the 90's that ham radio operators (another source of microwave radiation) suffer from higher risk of Alzheimer's. There are hundreds of reports of how dangerous such "low" levels of radiation are, but trying to warn people today is like trying to warn people about tobacco back in the 50's. And microwave energy is addictive, creating endogenous opioids in the brain something like a runner's high. It's an old story of unscrupulous industry games - promote an addictive product before any health risks from it can be exposed, so people won't want to hear about them, then rake in the profits until the risks can't be ignored anymore. It should be criminal to market cell phones to children, and it soon will be in France and other countries who have woken up to the despicable game being played with the public's health."

Joseph Moshe (MOSSAD Microbiologist): "Swine flu vaccine is bioweapon"
August 21, 2009
Today, the MSM are not talking about this case any more. Yesterday, they wanted us to believe that Joseph Moshe was a nutcase and a terrorist, arrested for threatening to bomb the White House. Interesting detail about his arrest (the "Westwood standoff") was that he seemed to be immune to the 5 cans of tear gas and 5 gallons of law-enforcement grade pepper spray they pumped into his face. He very calmly remained in his car, as the video footage of his arrest shows.
Professor Moshe had called into a live radio show by Dr. A. True Ott, broadcast on Republic Broadcasting claiming to be a microbiologist who wanted to supply evidence to a States Attorney regarding tainted H1N1 Swine flu vaccines being produced by Baxter BioPharma Solutions. He said that Baxter's Ukrainian lab was in fact producing a bioweapon disguised as a vaccine. He claimed that the vaccine contained an adjuvant (additive) designed to weaken the immune system, and replicated RNA from the virus responsible for the 1918 pandemic Spanish flu, causing global sickness and mass death.
Sources tell us that Bar-Joseph Moshe made no threat against the President or the White House. He did not mention any bomb or attack. He then proceeded to inform the White House he intended to go public with this information. When he noticed men in suits in front of his house and feared that the FBI was about to detain him, he packed some belongings into his car and, him being a dual Israeli citizen, tried to reach the Israeli consulate located in close proximity to the federal building where the standoff took place. The FBI and the bomb squad prevented him from reaching it. Who is this man? His profile on biomedexperts.com says he is a plant disease expert with many publications on his name involving the genetic manipulation of virii. Photographic evidence that Moshe is who he says he is can be found here.
Joseph Moshe was soon after his arrest sent or let go to Israel. Nothing has been heard from him since. The Secret Service was not the agency involved in the surveillance of Moshe at his home in California. This was done by the FBI, who had orders to detain or arrest him. Mounted on top of a large black vehicle used in his arrest was a microwave weapon that possibly damaged the electronics in Moshe's car as well as any communication devices he had which might have been used to contact the media or others who could help him.
Moshe did not suffer the same effects of the gas and pepper spray that others would have because he had built up an immunity to such weapons as a by-product of his Mossad training. Moshe was not handcuffed because he was not placed under arrest.
Baxter International Inc. had mixed live, genetically engineered avian flue viruses in vaccine material shipped to 18 countries. Only by sheer luck, a Czech laboratory decided to test the vaccine on a dozen ferrets, which all died in days. The World Health Organization was notified and catastrophe was averted. This was clearly a deliberate act on Baxter's part, because they adhere to BS3, bio-safety level three. Baxter admitted a "mistake". Such monumental screwups are totally impossible at that level. Many safety systems would have needed to be sabotaged, many key personell would have needed to be bribed. It simply can't be done without direction from the inside. They did not send out the wrong vial - they produced dozens of gallons of biological-weapon agent (genetically engineered live H5N1 / Bird flu virus), then sent it out as a "vaccine".
Baxter knew full well that their vaccine was lethal, because the year before they had tested it on a few hundred homeless Polish people - dozens died as a result.
Motive? The latter complaint alludes to it. Have you heard of the Georgia Guidestones? An enormous monument loaded with Masonic symbolism costing millions of dollars, it has been erected by unknown, powerful elites (multimillionaires with the clout to erect monuments wherever they please, obviously) around 30 years ago. It gives an "alternative ten commandments", of which the first is the extermination of six and a half billion people from the face of the Earth. Half a billion will remain. This is the number of people the planet can sustain indefinitely, so that the descendents of the Rothschilds and Rockefellers can live in peace and affluence indefinitely. Slaves are needed to produce that luxury, but 500 million will do just fine. But how does one go about killing off most of the world?
"Vaccinating" the planet with a bioweapon with near-100% mortality would do the trick. Baxter would provide both the bioweapon as well as the vaccine against it to "civilized" Western peoples. Result: We can plunder Africa, we have no more competition from SE Asia, the oil is for our taking and only Western and perhaps Chinese sheeple remain.
Rockefeller said this in 1994 at a U.N. dinner: "We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis, and the nations will accept the New World Order." PNAC said something similar right before 9/11.
30 years after compulsory vaccination became US Law:
US Court issues an injunction to stop it and to hold the the government and drug companies responsible for reactions.
A Preliminary Injunction to stop mandatory vaccinations has been issued in the United States District Court of New Jersey.
This comes after a federal lawsuit opposing forced vaccines was filed in that court by Tim Vawter, pro se attorney, on July 31st with the federal government as defendant.
When the judge signs the Preliminary Injunction, it will stop the federal government from forcing anyone in any state to take flu vaccine against their will. It will also prevent a state or local government from forcibly vaccinating anyone, and forbid any person who is not vaccinated from being denied any services or constitutional rights.
Vawters filings included a Complaint, and several pages of evidentiary Exhibits. Vawters legal papers have been written not only for filing in federal court, but additionally so they can be looked at by activists around the world for ideas on filing lawsuits in their own countries to help stop forced vaccinations.
Vawter believes that as the truth of the dangers of flu vaccines continues to become known, banning the forced use of them will eventually succeed on a worldwide basis. He cautions people to avoid fear and keep themselves focused on the task of blocking forced vaccination. Preliminary Injunction will immediately halt mandatory vaccinations in the U.S.
The Court, having heard the Motion for Preliminary Injunction and read the papers in its support, states in the Preliminary Injunction that it appears the federal government has engaged in some amount of negligence with regards to failure to properly investigate the safety of the flu vaccines scheduled for use in late 2009-2010, and the evidence submitted does warrant a more thorough investigation into the safety of the flu vaccines.
The Court ordered that the government shall be forbidden from forcing any person to be required to take any influenza vaccination against that persons free will and free choice. The government will not allow any state or local government, or any party, to force any person to be required to take any influenza vaccination against that persons free will and free choice.
U.S. government sued for gross negligence and violation of the Constitution
In his Cause of Action, Vawter charged that the federal government has engaged in gross negligence by funding and promoting flu vaccines that are proven to be dangerous and manufactured with little oversight. The vaccines scheduled for use in late 2009 and 2010 contain heavy metals including thimerosal mercury, which have been proven to cause autism in children with lowered immune systems, and other dangerous and toxic ingredients.
The federal government has stated it will force these flu vaccines onto the American public against their will, under a document signed by Health and
Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
He further charged that the vaccine makers stand to earn billions of dollars selling vaccines, and are already spending tens of millions advertising a Phase 6 Pandemic that the evidence shows does not really exist.
The federal government has not required the World Health Organization (WHO) to show evidence of such a pandemic. There has been no collection of facts, sworn testimony, witnesses being questioned, hearings being held, or lie detector tests being given when preposterous statements have been made. The WHO declared a massive Phase 6 Influenza Pandemic, even though only a few hundred people worldwide had so far died of this swine flu virus, and when far more people die each year of regular flu.
Vawter noted there is a preponderance of evidence to show that the federal government so poorly trained its employees that they eagerly agreed with the unsubstantiated claims of the WHO in the face of evidence to the contrary.
Forced vaccination would violate the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution by allowing the government to enter homes and force people to be vaccinated, or to forcibly remove people to another location for vaccination.
It would also violate Fifth Amendment Constitutional rights by depriving people of liberty without due process of law.
Vawter charged that the federal government has engaged in gross negligence by failing to properly investigate factual evidence submitted by esteemed medical professions over many years which proves flu vaccines have caused serious damage to people.
The CDC has stated that thimerosal mercury is being used in the new flu vaccines being prepared.
The government has failed to investigate profiteering. Billions of dollars in vaccine sales can cause organizations to falsify threats so as to cause unwarranted public hysteria leading to forced vaccinations.
The government is guilty of gross negligence because its employees failed to properly investigate the release of a case of live swine flu virus. One of the main companies the government deals with, Baxter Vaccines, was apparently involved in the transporting of live bird flu virus that was released on a public train earlier this year.
A lab technician with the Swiss National Center for Influenza in Geneva had traveled to Zurich to collect eight ampoules, five of which were filled with the H1N1 swine flu virus. However, failure of the dry ice in their container allowed pressure to build up, and the ampoules exploded as the train was pulling into a
Vawter charged there is a preponderance of evidence to show that government will not provide people being vaccinated with a list of the vaccine ingredients and possible negative side effects before they are vaccinated. Most of the public will not know this flu vaccine contains thimerosal mercury.
Vawter submitted an Order to force the government to publish vaccine ingredients and side effects, and to give this information to everyone who takes a flu vaccine, and do so at least 3 days prior to their vaccination. A denial of this order would violate Plaintiffs rights to demand the government obey the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution by requiring it to engage in freedom of speech. The First Amendment not only allows a citizen to have freedom of speech himself, but it allows a citizen to demand his government engage in freedom of speech when it is promoting the use of such as these vaccinations to the public.
The government proclamation stating a person cannot sue for any damages he receives from the flu vaccine, completely bypasses the congress and the court system in violation of the Seventh Amendment of the Constitution which grants the right to sue to recover for damages.
Vawter submitted an Order to deem unconstitutional any proclamation, rule or similar law that forbids people from suing for damages resulting from the vaccines of 2009 and 2010.
H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine Insert Admits It Causes Guillain-Barre Syndrome, Vasculitis, Paralysis, Anaphylactic Shock And Death
Sept 29th, 2009
The package insert for the Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine manufactured by Novartis has been leaked on the Internet. According to that package insert, the vaccine (based on an earlier vaccine product known as Fluvirin) is known to cause a whole host of very nasty side effects such as guillain-barre syndrome, vasculitis, anaphylactic shock and even death.
Of course anyone who has been studying vaccine side effects already knows that it causes all of these things, but the story here is that the insert for the swine flu vaccine itself is admitting all of these things. The insert says that it was updated during September 2009, so it reflects the very latest information.
You can read the package insert for this vaccine for yourself right here ..
Dr Blaylocks List of suggestions on How to Reduce the Toxic Effects of the A/H1N1 Vaccine, is as follows:
1. Number one on the list says Dr Blaylock, is to bring a cold pack with you and place it on the site of the injection as soon as you can, as this will block the immune reaction. Once you get home, continue using a cold pack throughout the day. If you continue to have immune reactions the following day, have cold showers and continue with the cold press.
2. Take fish oil. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), one of the omega 3 fatty acids found in fish oil supplements, is a potent immune suppressant. If you take high dose EPA you will be more susceptible to infections, because it is a powerful immune suppressant. However, in the case of an immune adjuvant reaction, you want to reduce it. Studies show that if you take EPA oil one hour before injecting a very powerful adjuvant called lipopolysaccharide (LPS), it would completely block the ability of the LPS to cause brain inflammation. Take a moderate dose everyday and more if needed to tame a cytokine storm.
3. Flavonoids are third on the list, namely curcumin, quercetin, ferulic acid and ellagic acid, particularly in a mixture. The curcumin and quercetin in particular have been found to block the ability of the adjuvants to trigger a long-term immune reaction. If you take it an hour before the vaccination, it should help dampen the immune reactions says Dr Blaylock.
4. Vitamin E, the natural form that is high in gamma-E will help dampen the immune reactions and reduces several of the inflammatory cytokines.
5. An important ingredient on the list is Vitamin C at a dose of 1000 mg, taken four times a day between meals. It is a very potent anti-inflammatory and should be taken in a buffered form, not as absorbic acid, says Dr Blaylock.
6. Also use astaxanthin as its an anti-inflammatory. According to Dr Blaylock, fatal reactions to vaccines in aboriginal and African children occurred in those who were deficient in carotinoids, like astaxanthin. It is a good protection against the toxic effects of the vaccine.
7. Likewise, it was found that children who were deficient in zinc had a high mortality rate. Zinc is very protective against vaccine toxicity. (Do not use zinc mixed with copper however, as copper is a major trigger of free-radical generation according to Dr Blaylock).
8. Ensure you avoid all immune-stimulating supplements, such as mushroom extracts, whey protein and beta-glucan.
9. Take a multivitamin-mineral daily one that does not contain iron. This multivitamin-mineral is to make sure your body has plenty of B vitamins and selenium. Selenium, said Dr Blaylock, is very important for fighting viral infections and it reduces the inflammatory response to vaccines.
10. Magnesium citrate/malate 500 mg of elemental magnesium two capsules, three times a day. (This was not mentioned during the show, but was posted at Dr Deagles website, ClayandIron.com).
11. What is very important is vitamin D3, which is the only vitamin the body can manufacture from sunlight (UVB). It is a neural hormone, not really a vitamin says Dr Blaylock and helps if you are over-reacting immunologically by cooling down the reaction. Similarly, if you are under-reacting, it helps to boost your immune response. In addition it also protects against microorganism invasion.
Black people and those in colder climates are particularly deficient, so they will almost certainly require supplementation.
Dr Blaylock recommends that following vaccination it will help to keep the immune reaction under control if:
i) All children get 5,000 units a day for two weeks after the vaccine and then 2,000 a units a day thereafter;
ii) Adults get 20,000 units a day after the vaccine for two weeks, then 10,000 units a day thereafter;
iii) And with that adults should take 500-1000 mg of calcium a day and children under the age of 12 years should take 250 mg a day, as vitamin D works more efficiently in the presence of calcium.
12. Ensure you avoid all mercury-containing seafood or any other sources of mercury, as the heavy metal is a very powerful inducer of autoimmunity, is known to make people more susceptible to viral infections and will be in H1N1 vaccines.
13. Avoid the oils that significantly suppress immunity and increase inflammation such as corn, safflower, sunflower, soybean, canola and peanut oils.
14. Drink very concentrated white tea at least four times a day. It helps to prevent abnormal immune reactions.
15. Pop parsley and celery in a blender and drink 8 ounces of this mixture twice a day. Dr Blaylock says the parsley is very high in a flavonoid called apigenin and that celery is high in luteolin. Both are very potent in inhibiting autoimmune diseases, particularly the apigenin, so go and plant some parsley in your garden now.
So what can we learn from all of this?
First of all, if you blindly trust that the swine flu vaccine or even the regular seasonal flu vaccine is perfectly safe, then you are being completely and totally reckless.
The reality is that no vaccine is 100% safe.
Before you ever let someone stick a needle in your arm, do some serious research and find out about these things for yourself.
After you get vaccinated, you are responsible if something goes wrong. If you develop some really nasty side effects, nobody is going to pay for it.
Thanks to the government, you will not be able to sue anyone for harm you receive from the swine flu vaccine. If it destroys your health you are out of luck.
Secondly, if you have taken a flu vaccine, there are some things you can do. Take Dr. Blaylocks suggestions seriously. The human body is an incredible healing machine if you give it the materials that it needs.
If you have any other information about the swine flu vaccine, mandatory vaccinations or flu pandemic planning please leave a comment and let us know. This is shaping up to be a very interesting winter, and hopefully we can all get through this as healthy as possible.
EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS EYE-OPENING ARTICLE... BARACK OBAMA IS RENEGING ON MANY OF HIS KEY ELECTORAL PROMISES. THE MASSIVE POLICE AND MILITARY STATE APPARATUS AND MANY REPRESSIVE LAWS CREATED UNDER BUSH ARE ABOUT TO BE UNLEASH AGAINST H1NI VACCINE PROTESTERS...
When word first arrived that the G-20 would be meeting in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, activists began organizing protest demonstrations. Events like this are what freedom of speech is made for. What better occasion to protest than a meeting of the world's 20 top leaders - most of them deservedly hated - where they will be imposing policy on billions of people worldwide?
The majority of protesters consisted of labor and community groups; they encountered an army of police literally. The New York Times paints an intimidating picture:
" the police were out in force, patrolling on bicycles, foot and horseback, by river and by air protesters trying to march toward the convention center encountered roaming squads of police officers carrying plastic shields and batons. The police fired a sound cannon (a new weapon) that emitted shrill beeps then threw tear gas canisters that released clouds of white smoke and stun grenades that exploded with sharp flashes of light." Rubber bullets were used in a separate incident.
"Riot fences lined the sidewalks. Police helicopters, gunboats and Humvees darted to and fro. City officials announced they had up to 1,000 jail cells ready after county officials freed up additional space last week by releasing 300 people who had been arrested on minor probation violations." (September 25, 2009).
What threat required such a military-like response? None was given. The New York Times article and many like it imply that the mere existence of marching protesters warrants a colossal reaction. Of course the presence of "anarchists" is used to further scare readers into accepting such foolishness, as if this breed of protester is especially lethal (the vast majority of anarchists are like all protesters - they do not attack the police or anybody else, though some protesters respond aggressively when being confronted with the above mentioned police weapons).
The G-20 police presence is not a terrible surprise to anyone who has attended a legitimate, community-organized protest over the years. Non-provoked usage of brutal weaponry is becoming commonplace; the police-enforced use of "free speech zones" at protests - small areas surrounded by fences in some cases - is nothing new.
But the staggering police presence at the G-20 confirms that the stakes have been raised. Two turning points that deserve special attention - since the mainstream media continues to ignore them - are last years Democratic and Republican National Conventions. In both cases incredible abuses of police powers were witnessed, with the Republican Convention (RNC) showcasing the most extreme cases of state repression.
At the RNC the unlawful tactic of mass arrests were used when, in separate incidents, a public park and bridge were surrounded by police, trapping everyone in the dragnet. The documentary, Terrorizing Dissent, has excellent footage of both episodes (http://www.terrorizingdissent.org). Police brutality was also a regular occurrence at the RNC - including much unnecessary usage of pepper spray and tasers - while occurring alongside an even more troubling episode.
The group now referred to as the RNC 8 consists of eight community organizers potentially facing years in jail for helping organize protests at the RNC. The original charge was the Orwellian Conspiracy to Riot in the second degree in Furtherance of Terrorism (other terrorism-related charges were later added). These terrorism charges were the first ever usage of the Patriot Act toward political activists. And although the terrorism provisions of the charges have since been dropped, due to public pressure, the attempt to equate terrorism with activism has incredible, non-accidental implications for the future.
When the Patriot Act was first enacted, there was no shortage of writers and activists warning about the potential of misuse. These predictions have been fully confirmed. Both the Military Commissions Act and the Patriot Act have created what many believe to be the framework for a full-fledged police state, with the initial flurry of abuses creating a series of dangerous precedents.
One famous precedent is the so-called Telecom scandal, where tele-communication corporations colluded with the Bush-controlled National Security Agency to illegally spy on an unknown number of innocent people. No one has gone to jail for this. Indeed, as a Senator, Obama was one of many Democrats who supported Bush's telecom immunity bill, which excuses those who broke the law while creating new powers to make spying on Americans legal.
Equally outrageous is the Military Commissions Act, created under Bush to destroy a fundamental democratic right: habeas corpus, or due process. This right says that the government cannot jail a person unless there is proof of crimes committed, while also giving that person a chance to challenge these charges in a legal court with a jury.
Bush created a separate category of person called an "enemy combatant," which he claimed was too dangerous to be treated constitutionally. An "enemy combatant" can be tried in a military court with secret or no evidence; or they can be jailed forever without even the symbolic military trial. Of course, it is only a hop and a skip away for political activists charged with terrorist crimes to be considered "enemy combatants" or "domestic terrorists."
Obama continues to uphold Bush's destruction of due process. Obama has said publicly that many so-called enemy combatants held at Guantanamo Bay will be held "indefinitely" without being tried for their alleged crimes. Supposedly, they are "the worst of the worst." If this is true then evidence should be produced to prove it, since anyone can accuse anybody of the most heinous crimes. Without evidence, however, such accusations correctly fall on deaf ears. But no more. Now, accusations of "terrorist activities" warrant life sentences. No crime need be committed, only a vague intention - even if such intentions were formed by the suggestions of an FBI informant and are impossible to implement. The media blares these absurd "terrorist plots" as facts, and the rationale behind the destruction of civil liberties is re-enforced.
It must not be forgotten that many of the "crimes" Guantanamo Bay inmates are being accused of are merely acts of resistance to the military occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, something they have every right to do.
The grossly illegal Guantanamo Bay is not being closed down like Obama promised, but moved. The equally illegal Bagram air base in Afghanistan is getting an upgrade, this according to the Independent:
"The air base is about to undergo a $60 [million] (£42m) expansion that will double its size, meaning it can house five times as many prisoners as remain at Guantanamo." (February 22, 2009).
Not only will Bagram continue to be an institution of terror, but also some analysts estimate that there remain 18,000 people held worldwide in foreign U.S. facilities - so-called black sites - with no legal rights. The absence of even Red Cross observation at these prisons insures that "harsh interrogations" (torture) will remain a regular habit.
The above abuses of the Patriot Act have trickled down from high-profile terrorism cases (some who have made confessions under torture), to regular usage against alleged gang members, drug dealers and immigrants.
For example, one section of the Patriot Act gives police the power to search people's home secretly without notifying the homeowner - called "sneak and peeks," a blatant violation of the Fourth Amendment. The logic again was that "special powers" were needed to track down "terrorists." The Huffington Post reported, "Only three of the 763 "sneak-and-peek" requests in fiscal year 2008 involved terrorism cases Sixty-five percent were drug cases." (September 23, 2009).
The illegal entry and searching of immigrant's homes - or anyone suspected of being an immigrant -- is widely known by the Latino community and continues to include the terror-inducing tactics of pre-dawn raids with guns drawn.
Once anti-constitutional behavior is applied to alleged terrorists, and extended to immigrants and people suspected of being gang members or drug dealers, such police behavior becomes normalized, and can then be easily expanded to all people accused of being "criminals." Police are widely known to consider political activists, protesters, and striking workers as criminal types, beliefs encouraged by the mainstream media.
Which brings us to why? Why does the destruction of democratic rights that accelerated under Bush continue with Obama? With every political "why" question one must first answer: who benefits?
In this case the benefiting parties are the giant corporations that dominate politics in the U.S. The people steering these companies had good foresight: they saw that the global capitalist economy necessitated a race to the bottom for workers' living standards. As U.S. corporations faced stiffer competition abroad for international markets, wages and benefits for U.S. workers would have to shrink, especially when U.S. corporations were investing heavily in emerging economies - China, India, etc., - for their slave wages.
U.S. corporate executives also understood that China became a police state out of necessity, so that its dollar-a-day workers could be brought into line (U.S. corporate investment rose sharply after the Tiananmen Square massacre). The trend of U.S. workers' wages leads logically to similar conclusions.
The creation of NAFTA to extend the dominance of U.S. corporations to Mexico and Canada would also have predictably negative effects on workers' living standards. Now, with two unpopular wars taking place and a third on the way (Pakistan) to further extend the profit margins of U.S. corporations, a breaking point is nearing.
Public money is being used to bail out banks and wage foreign wars while the recession continues to destroy jobs and drive down wages. This unpopular policy is viewed as a necessity for U.S. corporations, and Obama has no intention of reversing course. The police-state foundation created by Bush and continued under Obama is a stern warning to the U.S. working class to accept our fate or face dire consequences. It is already a fact that many people are too afraid of police repression to attend a protest, just as some workers are too afraid to be on a picket line during a strike.
Ultimately, a real democracy cannot function where there exists tremendous inequalities in wealth, where large sections of the population are in poverty. This is why democracies are not viable in poor countries: the super-rich use their power over the state - including dictatorships and mass repression - to crush social movements that challenge the status quo, as we are witnessing today in Honduras. The same dynamic is being created in the United States, where the vast majority of people are clamoring for real change, while those in the two-party system are using all means available to keep their rotten system in place.

Why does the U.S. government torture people? (June 24, 2009) http://dailycensored.com/2009/06/24/why-does-the-u-s-government-torture-people/
Well, its just standard practice, and unfortunately, U.S. government agents torture Americans far more often than they torture foreign terrorists.Since most of you are saying, No way. That cant be true! Ill let you in on one of the dirty secrets that the news media cartel has kept you in the dark about.In 2003, Congress made the following findings: 1. The total number of inmates who have been sexually assaulted in the past 20 years likely exceeds 1,000,000. 42 U.S.C. § 15601(2) Thats an average of over 130 sexual assaults of Americans every day. 2. Juveniles are 5 times more likely to be sexually assaulted in adult rather than juvenile facilitiesoften within the first 48 hours of incarceration. 42 U.S.C. § 15601(4) Of course, no one has been convicted of any crime within 48 hours of being taken into custody. 3. Prison rape endangers the public safety by making brutalized inmates more likely to commit crimes when they are released . 42 U.S.C. § 15601(8) Those who are not completely destroyed by this torture are inclined to kill members of law enforcement especially when faced with a threat of being imprisoned and tortured again. 4. In its findings on prisoner rape, Congress did not consider as rape the use of a health care providers hands or fingers and the use of instruments to perform body cavity searches in order to maintain security and safety within the prison or detention facility, provided that the search is conducted in a manner consistent with constitutional requirements. 42 U.S.C. § 15609(12)(C) Of course, these strip searches are usually conducted without a warrant or any semblance of probable cause, and therefore, they are technically also rape. Just ask anyone who has gone through one or seen one. (...) Yes, as a standard practice, young Americans are tortured, raped, and beaten by law enforcement every day in America, but the ACLU does nothing, the media censors this information from the public, and most importantly, just as with those who tortured prisoners overseas, the U.S. Government and the state governments do nothing to stop this widespread torture. Why? Because throughout history, the main use of torture has been to control the populace. CLIP MUCH MORE THROUGH http://dailycensored.com/
The Rise of Mercenary Armies: A Threat to Global Security (August 31, 2009) http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=14972
The growing use of private armies not only subjects target populations to savage warfare but makes it easier for the White House to subvert domestic public opinion and wage wars. Americans are less inclined to oppose a war that is being fought by hired foreign mercenaries, even when their own tax dollars are being squandered to fund it.The increasing use of contractors, private forces, or, as some would say, mercenaries makes wars easier to begin and to fightit just takes money and not the citizenry, said Michael Ratner, of New Yorks Center for Constitutional Rights. To the extent a population is called upon to go to war, there is resistance, a necessary resistance to prevent wars of self-aggrandizement, foolish wars, and, in the case of the United States, hegemonic imperialist wars.Indeed, the Pentagon learned the perils of the draft from the massive public protests it provoked during the Viet Nam war. Today, it would prefer, and is working toward, an electronic battlefield where the fighting is done by robots guided by sophisticated surveillance systems that will minimize U.S. casualties. Meanwhile, it tolerates the use of private contractors to help fight its battles.Iraq offers a heart-breaking example of a war in which contract fighters so inflamed the public they were sent to liberate that when fighting broke out in Fallujah the bodies of privateer Blackwaters four slain mercenaries were desecrated by enraged mobs. This horrific scene was televised globally and prompted the U.S. to make a punishing, retaliatory military assault upon Fallujah, causing widespread death and destruction.Just as the American colonists despised the mercenary Hessians in the Revolutionary War, Iraqis came to hate Blackwater and its kindred contractors worse than U.S. soldiers, who often showed them kindness, according to a journalist with experience in the war zone.
(...) By Spring, 2008, there were 180,000 mercenaries operating in Iraq. How many of them have been killed is not known. Their deaths do not appear on Pentagon casualty lists. Since many perform non-combat duties, it is not likely they have suffered as many deaths and wounds as GIs. By some estimates, perhaps 1,000 perished in Iraq, about one mercenary for every four GIs killed. According to Mansour, an Iraqi group, Supporters of Truth, claims that low-flying U.S. helicopters dropped the bodies of slain mercenaries into the Diyala River near the Iranian border. Another group, the Islamic Army of Iraq, uncovered mass graves for mercenaries who worked for the U.S. forces .He said uncovering mass graves of mercenaries had become common in Iraq Whether these were local mercenaries or imported fighters was not clear. Many soldiers of fortune on private payrolls previously served dictators in South Africa, Chile, and elsewhere. In Iraq, the private security firms that are the second-large component of the coalition of the willing are dipping into experienced pools of trained fighters, almost 70 percent from El Salvador, it is estimated, Noam Chomsky writes in Failed States(Metropolitan/Owl). The trained killers from the Reagan-run state terrorist apparatus can earn better pay pursuing their craft in Iraq than in what remains of their societies at home. Other mercenaries have been recruited from the Iraqi population itself. Sociologist James Petras, in his Rulers and Ruled in the U.S. Empire,(Clarity Press) writes, The use of local mercenaries creates the illusion that Washington is gradually handing over power to the local puppet regime. It gives the impression that the puppet regime is capable of ruling, and propagandizes the myth that a stable and reliable locally-based army exists. The presence of these local mercenaries creates the myth that the internal conflict is a civil war instead of a national liberation struggle against a colonial power. Petras also writes, the failure of the US policy of using Iraqi mercenaries to defeat the resistance is evident in the escalation of US combat military forces in Iraq in the spring of 2007, after five years of colonial warfare---from 140,000 to 170,000 troops, not counting the presence of some 100,000 mercenaries from American firms such as Blackwater. He said the Iraqi mercenary force is plagued by high levels of desertion. In The Sorrows of Empire (Metropolitan/Owl), Chalmers Johnson wrote, The use of private contractors is assumed to be more cost-effective, but even that is open to question when contracts go only to a few well-connected companies and the bidding is not particularly competitive. Blackwater Security got a $27 million no-bid contract to guard L. Paul Bremer III, the administrator of the Coalition Provisional authority in 2003. According to Joseph Stiglitz in The Three Trillion Dollar War (W.W. Norton), that was expanded to $100 million a year later and by 2007, Blackwater held a $1.2 billion contract for Iraq, where it employed 845 private security contractors. Stiglitz notes that in 2007 private security guards working for firms like Blackwater and Dyncorp were earning up to $1,222 a day or $445,000 a year. By contrast, an Army sergeant earned $140 to $190 a day in pay and benefits, a total of $51,100 to $69,350 a year. Since U.S. taxpayers are underwriting private soldiers paychecks, wheres the savings? It is money from taxpayers pockets that has made these shadow armies great. In his bestseller Blackwater: The Rise of The Worlds Most Powerful Mercenary Army (Nation Books) reporter Jeremy Scahill writes: Its seven-thousand-acre facility in Moyock, N.C., has now become the most sophisticated private military center on the planet, while the company possesses one of the worlds largest privately held stockpiles of heavy-duty weaponry. It is a major training center for federal and local security and military forces in the United States, as well as foreign forces and private individuals . It is developing surveillance blimps and private airstrips for its fleet of aircraft, which include helicopter gunships. Company officials say they have been training about 35,000 law enforcement and military personnel a year. CLIP -- OTHER COMMENTS FROM AMAZON: "I read this book in one night after hearing Mr. Scahill speak in Washington DC. The book is a remarkable and bracing wake up call about the privatization of war and how that subverts even basic notions of democracy. I find it remarkable that people criticize Mr. Scahill for using terms like "radical Christian right" - as if these terms are caricatures and ad hominem attacks. Hardly. In fact Schaill then spends hundreds of pages breaking down exactly what is so "radical Christian right" about Blackwater. He is a serious journalist who has uncovered a story that is both illuminating and frightening. " AND "Jeremy Scahill has written a meticulously documented book about an all-too-real threat to democracy. And not just in war zones, where Blackwater operates in concert with U.S. forces, but without the accountability, however flawed, of the official military. They appeared, as Scahill documents, on the streets of New Orleans and around the Gulf Coast as a security force. This was in a situation where what was desperately needed was more humanitarian operations--food, rescue, emergency housing.

LATEST PICS FROM U.S. EMBASSY IN AFGHANISTAN (SUMMER 2009) http://pakalert.wordpress.com/2009/09/14/satanic-homosexual-zionist-bastards-exposed/
Coming To Pakistan Soon This is what the US government and its Pakistani apologists will bring to Pakistan through Blackwater and other American terror militias. (...) If Pakistanis are concerned about the growing evidence of US expanding its military presence inside major Pakistani cities with the arrival of US private militias and mercenaries, with the connivance of a corrupt Pakistani elite completely sold out to the Americans, we have reasons for this concern. If the murderous mayhem unleashed by these American terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan is not enough, here are pictures and videos that show some of the activities of these hired American terrorists who are in the employ of the US embassy in Afghanistan. These pictures and videos are surfacing because of the hard work of honest and honorable ordinary American citizens who do not think that American military and government has the right to turn other countries into a mess. In Pakistan, the worlds largest American embassy is under construction. To protect it, Pakistans pro-US government is quietly helping the US expand its military presence in the country.

The Ominous Growth of Paramilitarism in American Police Departments http://www.tysknews.com/Depts/The_Law/paramilitarism_in_police2.htm
One of the most alarming side effects of the federal government's war on drugs is the militarization of law enforcement in America. There are two aspects to the militarization phenomenon. First, the American tradition of civil-military separation is breaking down as Congress assigns more and more law enforcement responsibilities to the armed forces. Second, state and local police officers are increasingly emulating the war-fighting tactics of soldiers. Most Americans are unaware of the militarization phenomenon simply because it has been creeping along imperceptibly for many years. (...) The militarization of law enforcement in America is a deeply disturbing development. Police officers are not supposed to be warriors. The job of a police officer is to keep the peace while adhering to constitutional procedures. Soldiers, on the other hand, consider enemy personnel human targets. Confusing the police function with the military function can lead to dangerous and unintended consequences - such as unnecessary shootings and killings. The proliferation of SWAT teams is particularly worrisome because such units are rarely needed. CLIP
City of Hardin & surrounding area is now becoming a police state! (September 28, 2009) http://www.stevequayle.com/News.alert/09_Global/090928.out.of.time.html
(...) In an interview, the American Police Force security has stated that they will stay here one month to assess the population and then they will make their permanent base here. They said they are scouting out thirty towns in the U.S. but that Hardin is the first. Also, President Obama has authorized and signed a bill for full government funding of the privatization of the police departments throughout the U.S. By the end of October, it is their plan to have all major cities locked down! In an interview with one of the city council members, he stated that this new H1N1 shot which has not been tested will be mandatory and if a resident of our town refuses, they will be taken to our prison where they will be quarantined. A federal law has been passed that makes it mandatory that all health care workers have to take this new shot. If they do not, they will automatically loose their jobs. The new federal law that is in place makes gives you four choices in regards to this new shot. One, you can voluntarily take it or you can refuse and be taken to a place to be quarantined, or as an alternative; if you refuse, you can have a chip placed in you to track you or a tracking bracelet which cannot be taken off. The state borders will be manned and locked down in the near future in regards to this mandatory shot.I am also told by a reliable source that today one of the managers at a local business in Hardin was visited by this new private security force which is now the new Hardin Police Department. He is an avid hunter and they came to inform him that they had a list of all fire arms that he owned; this includes all the residents of our town, and that he would need to take his guns down to have them put a marking device on them.Also, today, one of the main streets in Hardin was completely blocked off and they have been setting up information booths where they are passing out pamphlets with information on this new H1N1 shot.

Mysterious Private Security Firm Gets Control Of Empty Jail In Small Montana Town (September 30, 2009) http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/2009/09/american_police_force_hardin_montana.php?ref=fpb
A shadowy private security company that has no known clients but claims to have helped foreign governments combat terrorism and will protect anything from cruise ships to Pakistani convoys has taken over a jail in a small Montana town, with plans to build a law enforcement training facility on the property.The state legislature is looking into the matter and residents of Hardin, MT, were alarmed last week when executives from the firm, American Police Force, showed up in the town, which does not have its own police department, with Mercedes SUVs bearing "City Of Hardin Police Department" decals. And the town has had to tamp down reports on conspiracy Web sites that APF plans to impose experimental H1N1 vaccines on residents under threat of quarantine in the jail. Under a lease signed with Hardin, APF, based in Santa Ana, California, and incorporated just six months ago, is now in control of a 400-bed detention facility the town built a few years ago but never used, a town official confirmed to TPM muckraker today. The town reportedly stands to make over $2 million per year.Just what American Police Force plans to do with the detention facility, which comes with 50 acres of land in the small south-central Montana town, is unclear. Also not clear is who, if anyone, APF plans to put in the jail. (Watch a video tour of the jail here.) CLIP
Military Attacks American Citizens With Sound Weapons & Tear Gas At G20 http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=15391
National Guard, police, and other military units attacked American citizens with tear gas and deployed sound cannons today in response to an "unpermitted protest" as bedlam hit the streets on the first day of the G20 summit in downtown Pittsburgh. The First Amendment is officially dead in the United States. If this isn't martial law then we don't know what is. Associated Press photographs show National Guard troops in full fatigues with active duty military running checkpoints that make the roadblocks in Iraq positively friendly. Like Iraq, America is now a conquered nation occupied by troops whose primary function is to oppress anyone who tries to express the freedoms that they once enjoyed. It all unfolded live on The Alex Jones Show as the Infowars crew called in to the program as sound cannons were turned against protesters who police were attempting to force out of the immediate area."According to news agency reports, officers made their announcement over a loudspeaker telling people to leave or face arrest or "other police action," reports the London Times. These words were broadcast live on the Alex Jones Show today along with police orders that the "unlawful assemblies should immediately disperse"."Protesters at one flashpoint reported the use of tear gas to disperse the crowds," reports the Press Association. Citing Pittsburgh criminal code, police bellowed through loudspeakers that un-permitted protests were a serious offense, an official death knell for the First Amendment. Corporate media reports will obsess about anarchists causing nuisance without mentioning the fact that the You Tube video below clearly shows police terrorizing neighborhoods with ear-splitting sound weapons that are clearly a violation of all kinds of town ordinances related to public health and noise pollution.

Big Brother "Fusion Centers" Part of US Domestic Intelligence and Surveillance Apparatus (September 26, 2009) http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=15386
Speaking at San Francisco's Commonwealth Club September 15, Director of National Intelligence Admiral Dennis C. Blair, disclosed that the current annual budget for the 16 agency U.S. "Intelligence Community" (IC) clocks-in at $75 billion and employs some 200,000 operatives world-wide, including private contractors. In unveiling an unclassified version of the National Intelligence Strategy (NIS), Blair asserts he is seeking to break down "this old distinction between military and nonmilitary intelligence," stating that the "traditional fault line" separating secretive military programs from overall intelligence activities "is no longer relevant." (...) Since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the federal government has encouraged the explosive growth of fusion centers. As envisaged by securocrats, these hybrid institutions have expanded information collection and sharing practices from a wide variety of sources, including commercial databases, among state and local law enforcement agencies, the private sector and federal security agencies, including military intelligence. But early on, fusion centers like the notorious "red squads" of the 1960s and '70s, morphed into national security shopping malls where officials monitor not only alleged terrorists but also left-wing and environmental activists deemed threats to the existing corporate order. It is currently unknown how many military intelligence analysts are stationed at fusion centers, what their roles are and whether or not they are engaged in domestic surveillance. If past practices are an indication of where current moves by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) will lead, in breaking down the "traditional fault line" that prohibits the military from engaging in civilian policing, then another troubling step along the dark road of militarizing American society will have been taken. U.S. Northern Command: Feeding the Domestic Surveillance Beast Since its 2002 stand-up, U.S. Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) and associated military intelligence outfits such as the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and the now-defunct Counterintelligence Field Activity (CIFA) have participated in widespread surveillance of antiwar and other activist groups, tapping into Pentagon and commercial databases in a quixotic search for "suspicious patterns." As they currently exist, fusion centers are largely unaccountable entities that function without proper oversight and have been involved in egregious civil rights violations such as the compilation of national security dossiers that have landed activists on various terrorist watch-lists.

Big Brother USA: Police State Raids Against Immigrants (September 25, 2009) http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=15373
(...) These police state tactics have no place in a democracy, yet ICE (on its web site) lists dozens of monthly swat-type raids, often against innocent people and their families in their homes. IJC described them this way:A typical home raid has "a team of heavily armed ICE agents approaching a private residence in the pre-dawn hours, purportedly seeking an individual believed to have committed some civil immigration violation. Agents, armed only with administrative warrants, which do not grant them legal authority to enter private dwellings, then push their way in when residents answer the door, enter through unlocked doors or windows or, in some cases, physically break into homes."All occupants are then seized and interrogated with no legal authority, and often "no target is apprehended." These aren't random, standard operating procedures in violation of the Fourth Amendment that protects citizens and non-citizens alike. The Office of Detention and Removal (DRO) conducts them cooperatively with the Office of Investigations (OI), charged with investigating national security threats, immigration violations, and various other suspected crimes. Home raid operations include:-- the National Fugitive Operations Program (NFOP) using over 100 seven-person Fugitive Operations Teams (FOTs) to target individuals for deportation;-- Operation Cross Check focusing on specific immigrant populations or ones working in certain industries like dangerous, low-paying meat packing operations, unattractive to workers able to find safer, better-paying jobs;-- Operation Community Shield (OCS) against suspected immigrant gang members; and-- Operation Predator against suspected immigrant sex offenders. Most often, high priority targets aren't seized. Instead, "collateral arrests of mere (suspected) immigration status violators" are made, and since 2006 the numbers expanded eight-fold because of primarily relying on home raids despite their illegality.

World Bank Spends Billions on Coal-Fired Power Stations Despite Own Warnings
by Ben Webster - September 16, 2009
The World Bank is spending billions of pounds subsidising new coal-fired power stations in developing countries despite claiming that burning fossil fuels exposes the poor to catastrophic climate change. The bank, which has a goal of reducing poverty and is funded by Britain and other developed countries, calls on all nations in a report today to "act differently on climate change".
It says that the world must reduce its dependence on fossil fuels, but it is funding several giant coal-burning plants that will each emit millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide a year for the next 40 to 50 years.
Britain is contributing £400million to a World Bank fund that claims to support "clean technology" but is financing coal power plants.
The bank's World Development Report says: "Developing countries are disproportionately affected by climate change - a crisis that is not of their making and for which they are the least prepared. Increasing access to energy and other services using high-carbon technologies will produce more greenhouse gases, hence more climate change.
The report says that between 75 and 80 per cent of the damage caused by climate change through drought, floods and rising sea levels will happen in developing countries. It calls on richer nations, including Britain, to increase the amount that they spend on helping developing countries to adapt to climate change.
The bank also wants global spending on research and development on sustainable sources of energy to be increased from the present $70billion (£40billion) a year to $700billion.
The report says that unless the world acts now to cut carbon dioxide emissions it faces a 5C (9F) rise in global temperatures by the end of the century. "Such a drastic temperature shift would cause the possible dieback of the Amazon rainforest, complete loss of glaciers in the Andes and Himalayas, and rapid ocean acidification leading to death of coral reefs," it says.
"The speed and magnitude of change could wipe out more than 50 per cent of species. Sea levels could rise by one metre this century, threatening 60 million people. Agricultural productivity would likely decline throughout the world and over three million additional people could die from malnutrition each year."
The 260-page report advises against "locking the world into high-carbon infrastructure" but makes no mention of the bank's plans to subsidise coal power plants in India, South Africa, Botswana and other developing countries.
Last year the bank and its partner, the Asian Development Bank, approved $850million in loans to finance a coal-fired plant in Gujarat, western India.
The Environmental Defence Fund, a US lobby group, said that the plant, the first of nine planned in India, would be one of the biggest new sources of greenhouse gases on Earth, emitting 26.7million tonnes of CO2 a year for the next 50 years.
The bank is also contributing $5billion towards South Africa's power generation expansion plan, which includes six coal plants.
Marianne Fay, the bank's chief economist for sustainable development, said that coal was the cheapest and most secure way to deliver electricity to the 1.6billion people without it. She said: "There are a lot of poor countries which have coal reserves and for them it's the only option. The [bank's] policy is to continue funding coal to the extent that there is no alternative and to push for the most efficient coal plants possible. Frankly, it would be immoral at this stage to say, 'We want to have clean hands, therefore we are not going to touch coal'."
Tim Jones, policy officer of the World Development Movement, which campaigns to reduce poverty, said: "The World Bank is acting in the interests of Western countries and companies and not in the long-term interests of the world's poor.
"It is an absolute disgrace that money meant for clean technologies will actually be used for building new coal power stations. Every pound of green aid that will be spent on funding coal power through the World Bank is money that should be spent on supporting renewable energy in developing countries."
The bank said that it had lent $5billion for fossil fuel projects in the past three years and $11billion for "low-carbon" alternatives.
A spokesman for the Department for International Development in Whitehall said: "We have informed the World Bank that we will be scrutinising future coal-fired power plant proposals to ensure that they have explored all other options (including accessing the additional finance needed for cleaner alternatives), and we would expect any future coal plants to reach the highest international standards."
Poor nations will struggle with World Bank's climate change plans (September 16, 2009) http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/article6836081.ece
You might think that we could do without another big report on climate change but this one from the World Bank is overdue and badly needed. Sadly, it does not have a hope in hell of doing what it says on the title page - Changing the Climate for Development. The World Bank has been trying to eradicate poverty and raise living standards in poor countries since 1946, with meagre success. Now the good bankers have been given an extra ball to juggle - how to improve the lot of the world's poorer countries, those where 1.6 billion people live on $1 a day, without burning a lot more fossil fuels.The Bank provides trite answers uttered by others many times before: the need for more public spending on technology, a big commitment by developed countries to curb emissions. More interesting is where the bankers stumble in their effort to grapple with the horrible problem of our age.The report states blandly that climate change policy "is not a simple choice between a high-growth, high-carbon world and a low-growth, low-carbon world". Unfortunately, for most of the world's population that is precisely the choice. Poor countries have limited or no options. Expensive fuel and food mean riots, so the solution is blindingly obvious - growth. Even among the more developed states, China and India, for example, resistance to our attempt to impose a curb on their carbon emissions has been ferocious. Without infrastructure, without good roads, good government, reliable power and food distribution, poor countries collapse at the first wave and breath of wind. That was brought home in last year's hurricane season when catastrophic floods devastated impoverished Haiti but the same storms left neighbouring and wealthier Dominican Republic less affected.Oil and gas infrastructure, power stations, these were the World Bank's bread and butter, although nuclear power was vetoed back in the 1970s when America's writ dominated the institutions even more than it does today. The World Bank wants to be greener and it boasts of its investment in renewables. But what we need to know is whether a poor country, such as Bangladesh, can afford to dabble in greenery. Or does it need to build, build, build.
Doctors warn of global health catastrophe unless climate change is fixed (September 16, 2009) http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/6195050/Doctors-warn-of-global-health-catastrophe-unless-climate-change-is-fixed.html
A failure to tackle climate change will lead to a ''global health catastrophe'', leading doctors warned today. But taking steps to cut the world's carbon emissions, such as eating less meat and switching to cleaner energy, will have benefits for people's health, an editorial published in both the Lancet and British Medical Journal (BMJ) said. And in a letter accompanying the editorial, medical chiefs in the UK, Ireland and around the world called on doctors to put pressure on politicians meeting in Copenhagen in December in a bid to secure a new global deal on cutting emissions.The heads of the Royal Colleges said doctors should demand world leaders listen to the scientific evidence of climate change and implement strategies to tackle emissions that will benefit the health of people around the globe.A failure to negotiate a strong deal could have ''catastrophic'' results, with those in poorest countries hit hardest by the impacts on health of drought and pressure on water resources, storms, floods and conflict. But ''what's good for the climate is good for health'', the editorial by Lord Michael Jay of medical charity Merlin and Professor Michael Marmot, director of the International Institute for Society and Health, said.''The measures needed to combat climate change coincide with those needed to ensure a healthier population and reduce the burden on health services,'' they wrote.''A low carbon economy will mean less pollution. A low carbon diet - especially eating less meat - and more exercise will mean less cancer, obesity, diabetes and heart disease.''Efforts to tackle climate change will also be an opportunity to address health inequalities between rich and poor, they said. A successful outcome at Copenhagen ''is vital for our future as a species and for our civilisation'', while failure to agree radical reductions in emissions would spell ''a global health catastrophe'', they warned. Dr Fiona Godlee, editor in chief of the BMJ, said: ''Politicians may be scared to push for radical reductions in emissions because some of the necessary changes to the way we live won't please voters.''Doctors are under no such constraint. On the contrary we have a responsibility as health professionals to warn people how bad things are likely to get if we don't act now. "The good news is that we have a positive message - that what is good for the climate is good for health."
Senators unveil new climate change bill (September 30, 2009) http://www.mcclatchydc.com/227/story/76309.html
WASHINGTON On a stage in front of the Capitol with a giant American flag behind them, a group of senators Wednesday unveiled a new climate bill that they say will increase jobs and reduce the billions spent on foreign oil. The bill's framework is similar to one that squeaked through the House in June. It orders mandatory reductions of heat-trapping gases by large companies and provides incentives and support for clean energy. It goes further, however, with more support for continued use of coal but with the emissions greatly reduced, and for increased reliance on nuclear power and natural gas. Those provisions are intended to pull in more support from fence-sitting or opposing senators. Details in the bill remain to be filled in, and supporters face an uphill fight getting enough votes to clear the Senate's 60-vote requirement. Democratic supporters argue that the bill which they're calling the Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act puts American interests first. (...) Kerry said the bill supports all forms of energy - including coal, natural gas and nuclear energy - but makes them cleaner and more efficient. Emissions reductions would be required only by large companies that emit 25,000 tons of carbon or more per year. Farms, homes and small businesses are exempt, Kerry said. Even so, the bill would cover three-quarters of the nation's emissions of heat-trapping gases. The required reductions would reduce global warming pollution by 20 percent from 2005 levels by 2020, slightly more than the 17 percent in the House bill, and 83 percent by 2050, the level consistent with what scientific studies say will be necessary to prevent destructive warming that brings coastal inundation, more frequent heat waves, extinction of species and other results of a climate shift.

The number of people worldwide dying each year from cancer will rise from around seven million now to 10 million by 2020, and the overall toll will double within 40 years, said Sir Michael Marmot, professor of epidemiology and public health at University College London."It's enormous, it's catastrophic," he said. "The numbers are just frightening on a global scale. After cardiovascular disease, it's the next highest cause of death in this country. With the same sense of urgency that at long last we're now starting to address the climate change agenda, let's address the cancer agenda because we think a large proportion of those cancer deaths are preventable or could be delayed. It's urgent to be taking action now." CLIP
Note from Jean: A couple days ago I woke up from a nightmarish visionary dream in which I had just realized that a previously averted possibility (which I felt was successfully addressed during previous dreams) in the field of potentials was once again on track to trigger a nuclear holocaust resulting from a surprise attack from China against the United States and other targets. The depth of spiritual agony I then experienced was mixed with the urgent need to act quickly to safeguard my 2 daughters from being annihilated in such an imminent exchange of doomsday weapons' fire. The last thing I remember before waking up was that I was crying while screaming, "No! Not again!"... Normally I would never pass on such a dream description to avoid giving it the fuel of other people's attention but then I just felt the pull to check the latest news on the Web and my eyes immediately zoomed on the title of the following article - The American Doomsday Machine - which I read with growing dismay at the realization that the strident, heart-wrenching experience of my dream was perhaps an urgent warning from my higher self to pay attention to something brewing up right now that could potentially lead to the end of all Life on Earth. It also reminded me that I - and all of us in the soul-awakened community of Light around the world - hold a crucial responsibility to use our creative talents to create the conditions of global brotherhood and loving compassion that CAN actually dispel forever any such doomsday scenario.
So I urge you all to please make the necessary time in your ongoing daily activities for reading and pondering what I just suggested and the following call for massive citizen's actions to push the complacent wheels of power around the world to quickly move us all away from the brink of Armageddon on which we precariously stand. I do trust that higher benevolent forces have been tirelessly working to prevent us from launching the stupidest, most abysmally inhumane genocidal machine ever put together and maintained - to this day! - but I also do know in my heart and soul that if we are to graduate in these times of epochal change that will open a bright future in our soul cosmic journey, we NEED to take on a more and more active role in our own planetary self-preservation and show that we are indeed maturing as a species and getting ready to take flight from our nest and boldly and peacefully go exploring the infinite possibilities this universe has in store for us.
Showering Love - this blazing Flame of pure divine Bliss - around us and enabling this most powerful Universal Force to guide us, moment by moment, to be the change we want to see in this world will be our saving Grace, if we just choose to believe in our Selves and in the infinite goodness and kindness that is our very nature as Sons and Daughters of the Infinite Light from whence we ALL came... So let us be the Light of this world!...
Editor's Note: Many know Daniel Ellsberg as the whistleblower who leaked the secret Pentagon Papers history of the Vietnam War, but for years before that, he was one of the select few overseeing a nuclear doomsday machine that had the potential of eliminating much, if not all, human life.
In this first installment of his online memoir of the nuclear era, Ellsberg recounts highlights of his six years of highly classified work as a consultant on nuclear command and control, nuclear war planning and nuclear crises. Ellsberg is now a senior fellow of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation.
One day in the spring of 1961, soon after my 30th birthday, I was shown how our world would end. Not the Earth, not-so far as I knew then-all humanity or life, but the destruction of most cities and people in the Northern Hemisphere.
What I was handed, in a White House office, was a single sheet of paper with some numbers and lines on it. It was headed "Top Secret-Sensitive"; under that, "For the President's Eyes Only."
The "Eyes Only" designation meant that, in principle, it was to be seen and read only by the person to whom it was explicitly addressed, in this case the president. In practice this usually meant that it would be seen by one or more secretaries and assistants as well: a handful of people, sometimes somewhat more, instead of the scores to hundreds who would normally see copies of a "Top Secret-Sensitive" document.
Later, working in the Pentagon as the special assistant to the assistant secretary of defense, I often found myself reading copies of cables and memos marked "Eyes Only" for someone, though I was not that addressee, nor for that matter was my boss.
And already by the time I read this one, as a consultant to the Office of the Secretary of Defense, it was routine for me to read "Top Secret" documents. But I had never before seen one marked "For the President's Eyes Only," and I never did again.
The deputy assistant to the president for national security, my friend and colleague Bob Komer, showed it to me. A cover sheet identified it as the answer to a question President John F. Kennedy had addressed to the Joint Chiefs of Staff a week earlier. Komer showed it to me because I had drafted the question, which Komer had sent in the president's name.
The question to the JCS was: "If your plans for general [nuclear] war are carried out as planned, how many people will be killed in the Soviet Union and China?"
Their answer was in the form of a graph. The vertical axis was the number of deaths, in millions. The horizontal axis was time, indicated in months.
The graph was a straight line, starting at time zero on the horizontal-on the vertical axis, the number of immediate deaths expected within hours of our attack-and slanting upward to a maximum at six months, an arbitrary cutoff for the deaths that would accumulate over time from initial injuries and from fallout radiation.
The lowest number, at the left of the graph, was 275 million deaths. The number at the right-hand side, at six months, was 325 million.
That same morning, with Komer's approval, I drafted another question to be sent to the Joint Chiefs over the president's signature, asking for a total breakdown of global deaths from our own attacks, to include not only the whole Sino-Soviet bloc but all other countries that would be affected by fallout.
Again their answer was prompt. Komer showed it to me about a week later, this time in the form of a table with explanatory footnotes.
In sum, 100 million more deaths, roughly, were predicted in East Europe. There might be an additional 100 million from fallout in West Europe, depending on which way the wind blew (a matter, largely, of the season).
Regardless of season, still another 100 million deaths, at least, were predicted from fallout in the mostly neutral countries adjacent to the Soviet bloc or China: Finland, Austria, Afghanistan, India, Japan and others. Finland, for example, would be wiped out by fallout from U.S. ground-burst explosions on the Soviet submarine pens at Leningrad.
(The total number of "casualties"-injured as well as killed-had not been requested and was not estimated; nor were casualties from any Soviet retaliatory strikes.)
The total death toll as calculated by the Joint Chiefs, from a U.S. first strike aimed primarily at the Soviet Union and China, would be roughly 600 million dead. A hundred Holocausts.
Contemplating the Unthinkable
I remember what I thought when I held the single sheet with the graph on it. I thought, this piece of paper should not exist. It should never have existed. Not in America. Not anywhere, ever.
It depicted evil beyond any human project that had ever existed. There should be nothing on Earth, nothing real, that it referred to.
But I knew what it dealt with was all too real. I had seen some of the smaller bombs myself, H-bombs with an explosive yield of 1.1 megatons each-equivalent to 1.1 million tons of high explosive, each bomb half the total explosive power of all the bombs of World War II combined.
I saw them slung under single-pilot F-100 fighter-bombers on alert at Kadena Air Base on Okinawa, ready to take off on 10 minutes' notice. On one occasion I had laid my hand on one of these, not yet loaded on a plane. On a cool day, the smooth metallic surface of the bomb was warm from the radiation within: a bodylike warmth.
I was in Okinawa in the fall of 1959 as part of a task force organized by the Office of Naval Research, which was there to study and improve nuclear command and control for the commander in chief of the Pacific Command (CINCPAC), Adm. Harry D. Felt.
I was on loan from the RAND Corp., which I had joined as a full-time employee in June 1959 after a previous summer there as a consultant.
This particular study took us to every command post in the Pacific that year and the next-from Oahu to Guam, Tokyo, Taiwan and the command ship of the Seventh Fleet-with license from Adm. Felt to "talk to anyone, see anything" in the field of nuclear command and control.
At Kadena, the pilots weren't in the planes on alert or in the hut on the alert strip; they were allowed to be elsewhere, at the post exchange or in their quarters, because each was accompanied at all times by his individual jeep and driver to return him in minutes to the strip when an alert was sounded. They practiced the alert at least once a day.
The officer in charge told our research group that we could choose the time for that day's rehearsal. When our leader said "OK, now," the klaxons sounded all over the area and jeeps appeared almost instantly on all the roads leading to the strip, rushing around curves, pilots leaping out as they reached the strip and scrambling into the cockpits, still tightening their helmets and gear.
Engines started in 10 planes, almost simultaneously. Ten minutes.
These were tactical fighter-bombers, with limited range. There were more than a thousand of them, armed with H-bombs, in range of Russia and China on strips like this or on aircraft carriers surrounding the Sino-Soviet bloc (as we still thought of it in 1961, though China and the Soviets had actually split apart a couple of years before that).
Each of them could devastate a large city with one bomb. For a larger metropolitan area, it might take two.
Yet the Strategic Air Command (SAC), which did not command these planes (they were under the control of theater commanders), regarded these tactical theater forces as so vulnerable, unreliable and insignificant as a factor in all-out nuclear war that SAC planners had not even included them in their calculations of the outcome of attacks in a general war until that year.
Before 1961, planners at SAC headquarters took into consideration only attacks by the heavy bombers, intermediate-range ballistic missiles and ICBMs commanded by SAC, along with Polaris submarine-launched missiles.
In the bomb bays of the SAC planes were thermonuclear bombs much larger than those I saw in Okinawa. Many were from five to 20 megatons in yield. Each 20-megaton bomb-1,000 times the yield of the fission bomb that destroyed Nagasaki-was the equivalent of 20 million tons of TNT, or 10 times the total tonnage the U.S. dropped in World War II.
Some 500 bombs in the arsenal each had the explosive power of 25 megatons. Each of these warheads had more power than all the bombs and shells exploded in all the wars of human history.
These intercontinental bombers and missiles had come to be stationed almost entirely in the continental U.S., though they might be deployed to forward bases outside it in a crisis. A small force of B-52s was constantly airborne. Many of the rest were on alert.
I had seen a classified film of an incredible maneuver in which a column of B-58s-smaller than B-52s but still intercontinental heavy bombers-taxied down a runway and then took off simultaneously, rather than one at a time.
The point-as at Kadena and elsewhere-was to get in the air and away from the field as fast as possible, on warning of an imminent attack, before an enemy missile might arrive. In the time it would normally have taken for a single plane to take off, a squadron of planes would be airborne, on its way to assigned targets.
In the film these heavy bombers, each as big as an airliner, sped up in tandem as they raced down the airstrip, one behind the other so close that if one had slackened its pace for an instant the plane behind, with its full fuel load and its multiple thermonuclear weapons, would have rammed into its tail.
Then they lifted together, like a flock of birds startled by a gunshot. It was an astonishing sight; it was beautiful.
The planned targets for the whole force included, along with military sites, every city in the Soviet Union and China.
On carriers, smaller, tactical bombers would be boosted on takeoff by a catapult, a kind of large slingshot.
But since the general nuclear war plan, as I knew, called for takeoff around the world of as many U.S. planes and missiles as were ready at the time of the execute order-as near-simultaneously as possible-to attack targets that were all assigned in prior planning, the preparations contemplated one overall, inflexible global attack as if all the vehicles, with more than 3,000 warheads, were launched by a single catapult. A sling made for Goliath.
Single Integrated Plan
The rigidity of the single, coordinated plan-which by 1961 included tactical bombers-in what was termed the Single Integrated Operational Plan, or SIOP, meant that its underlying "strategy" amounted to nothing more than a vast trucking operation to transport thermonuclear warheads to Soviet and Chinese cities and military sites.
The latter were the great majority of targets, since all the cities could be destroyed by a small fraction of the attacking vehicles.
One of the principal expected effects of this plan-partly intended, partly (in allied, neutral and "satellite" countries) unavoidable "collateral damage"-was summarized on the piece of paper I held that day in the spring of 1961: the extermination of over half a billion people.
(In fact, this was certainly a vast underestimate of the fatalities. Dr. Lynn Eden, a scholar at Stanford's Center for International Security and Cooperation, has revealed in "Whole World on Fire" (Cornell, 2004) the bizarre fact that the war planners of SAC and the Joint Chiefs have-throughout the nuclear era, to the present day-deliberately omitted entirely from their estimates of the destructive effects of U.S. or Russian nuclear attacks the effects of fire.
(They have done so on the grounds that these effects are harder to predict than the effects of blast or fallout on which their estimates of fatalities are exclusively based. Yet the firestorms caused by thermonuclear weapons are known to be predictably the largest producers of fatalities in a nuclear war!
(Given that for almost all strategic nuclear weapons the damage radius of firestorms would be two to five times the radius destroyed by blast, a more realistic estimate of the fatalities caused directly by the planned U.S. attacks would surely have been double the figure on the summary I held in my hand-a billion people or more.)
The declared intent of this planning deployment and rehearsal was to deter Soviet aggression. I knew by this time something that was rarely made clear to the American public, that what was to be deterred by all this was not only nuclear attacks by the Soviets but conventional, non-nuclear Soviet aggression, in Europe in particular.
In both cases, the story went, it was all designed to prevent such Soviet attacks from ever taking place. This global machine had been constructed in hopes that it would never be set in motion: or, as it was often put, so that it would never be used. The official motto of SAC, on display at all its bases, was "Peace Is Our Profession."
Deterring Soviet non-nuclear aggression in Europe-say, a military occupation of West Berlin-depended ultimately on a presidential commitment to direct, if necessary, a U.S. nuclear first strike on the Soviet Union. SAC's profession would shift near-instantaneously from Peace to War. The Strategic Air Command trained daily, and effectively, to be ready to carry out that order.
The American commitment to defend NATO (with Berlin its most vulnerable element) by nuclear threats, and if necessary by strategic first-strike nuclear attacks, effectively passed the trigger for such U.S. attacks to the Soviets.
The real possibility that the Soviets might pull that trigger lay at the heart of all our nuclear planning and preparations. It was understood that although deterrence was the principal objective of our nuclear posture, it was not foolproof. It might fail. That applied both to deterrence of nuclear attack and to deterrence of a conventional Soviet attack in Europe. In either case, it was not impossible that the Soviets would attack despite our threats and our best efforts to dissuade them.
What to do then was a matter of highly classified discussion over the years. But on this question the official top-secret plans approved by President Dwight D. Eisenhower were unequivocal: the demolition of the Sino-Soviet bloc.
A striking and highly secret characteristic of the existing plans was that they called for essentially the same strategic response and targeting list for each of three quite distinct ways in which general war might come about.
The first, and most likely in the judgment of the JCS, was a U.S. nuclear first strike as an escalation of conflict between U.S. and Soviet conventional forces, perhaps originating in conflict over Berlin or an uprising in East Europe.
Second was U.S. pre-emption of an imminent Soviet nuclear attack on the U.S., or as I'd heard it described in the Pentagon, "striking second first." Third-and least likely in the eyes of the JCS-was a retaliatory response to a successful Soviet surprise attack.
Although the size of the U.S. force available for attack would be different in each of these cases, the Eisenhower-approved plans called for the same target list-which included 151 "urban-industrial targets," i.e. cities, along with military targets-to be attacked under all conditions.
The circumstances of war initiation, by determining the size of the force, would influence only the amount of coverage of the target list. Initial attacks would be as massive and as nearly simultaneous in arrival as possible.
Attacks by all non-alert forces would follow as quickly as they could be launched. No forces would deliberately be held in reserve: an arrangement perhaps unique in the history of war planning.
And in all three cases, all large cities of both the Soviet Union and China (even if China had no part in the crisis or hostilities triggering execution of this plan) were high on the list for initial, simultaneous missile attacks, and for subsequent coverage by bombers-along with the highest-priority Soviet missile sites, air bases, air defenses and command centers.
In the White House in January 1961 I had informed the newly arrived assistant to the president for national security, McGeorge Bundy, of a number of little-known facts and problems. (How I came to this knowledge will be recounted later in this series.)
One of these was the focus on U.S. first-strike plans in American preparations for any conflict with the Soviet Union involving forces above the level of a brigade. Another was Eisenhower's approval of operational planning to destroy an "optimum mix" of population targets along with military sites no matter how the conflict had originated.
A third subject in my briefing was the variety of ways in which the strategic forces might be triggered "by accident": by false alarm, miscalculation, miscommunication, or actions not directly authorized by the president or perhaps by any high-level commander.
(Exploring these possibilities in the field had been my special mission in the CINCPAC task force, and later as a RAND specialist in nuclear weapons "command and control.")
The last point in particular caught Bundy's attention. I reported what I had learned in the Pacific, one of the most sensitive secrets in the system:
That to forestall the possibility that our retaliatory response might be paralyzed either by a Soviet attack on Washington or by presidential incapacity, President Eisenhower had as of 1958 secretly delegated to theater commanders the authority to launch nuclear operations in a crisis, either in the event of the physical unavailability of the president-Eisenhower himself had suffered both a stroke and a heart attack in office-or if communications with Washington were cut off.
I had further learned that CINCPAC, Adm. Felt, had likewise delegated that authority downward in his command, under like conditions. That put many fingers on the button if communications went out between Washington and Hawaii, or Hawaii and the Western Pacific.
In those years such an outage occurred for each of these links, on average, once a day. Thus this arrangement magnified greatly the possibilities listed above for "inadvertent, accidental" nuclear war, especially when outages occurred during a potential nuclear crisis such as the Taiwan Straits (Quemoy) confrontation of 1958.
(The response of the Kennedy and Johnson administrations to this information will be addressed in my next installment.)
The combined message of these reports was that our overall system for strategic response had the character of a giant thermonuclear mousetrap on a hair trigger.
For a wide variety of provocative circumstances-definitely not requiring and most not involving either Soviet-initiated nuclear attacks or imminent expectation of them-it was set inflexibly to annihilate a large fraction of the civilian population of the Soviet Union and China, and of many allies and neutrals.
My one-on-one briefing of Bundy in his first weeks in office-arranged by Paul Nitze, the assistant secretary of defense for international security affairs-was in part the reason I was in a position to draft questions for the White House soon after.
As it happened, I had drafted the question about estimated deaths from execution of the general war plans in the belief that the JCS did not know an answer to it. Officers I worked with in the planning staff of the Air Force were convinced that no one, either in the Joint Staff or the Air Staff, had ever calculated the overall human consequences of carrying out their plans.
That encouraged me to ask the JCS in the name of a higher authority for an estimate, in the expectation they would be embarrassed by having to admit they could not answer it promptly.
The authority I had in mind initially was the secretary of defense. (Although funding for RAND, including my salary, came mainly from the Air Force at that time, I was in effect on loan to the Office of the Secretary of Defense for much of 1961.)
But as I've said, the question was picked up by the White House and sent in the president's name. I had deliberately limited it, initially, to effects in the Soviet Union and China alone, instead of worldwide or in the Sino-Soviet bloc. That was to keep the Joint Staff from disguising its lack of any estimates at all by pleading a need for time to calculate casualties, say, in Albania, or the Southern Hemisphere.
Alternatively, I expected the Joint Staff to improvise an estimate which could easily be exposed, to its embarrassment, as unrealistically low. The point of eliciting either of these expected responses was to gain bargaining power for the secretary of defense in a bureaucratic effort (discussed later) to change the JCS plans in the direction of guidance I had drafted for the secretary earlier that month.
But my expectations were wrong. The Joint Chiefs were embarrassed neither by the question nor by their answer. That was the surprise, along with the answer itself. The implications, as I saw them, were literally existential, bearing on the nature and future of our species.
I myself at that time was neither a pacifist nor a critic of the explicit logic of deterrence or its legitimacy. On the contrary, I had been urgently working with my colleagues to assure a survivable U.S. capability to threaten clearly unacceptable damage to the Soviet Union in response to the most successful possible Soviet nuclear attack on the U.S.
But planned slaughter of 600 million civilians-10 times the total death count in World War II, a hundred times the scale of the Holocaust? That aimed-for accomplishment exposed a dizzying irrationality, madness, insanity, at the heart and soul of our nuclear planning and apparatus.
I said earlier that I saw that day how the northern civilized world would end. I might have thought instead how it could end or might do so, but that wasn't the conclusion I drew then. The chart I held in my hand that spring morning said to me that any confidence-worse, it seemed, any realistic hope-that the alert forces on either side might never be used was ill-founded.
The Americans who had built this machine, knowing, it turned out, that it would kill more than half a billion people if it were turned on-and who were unabashed in reporting this to the president-humans like that would not fail to pull the switch if ordered to do so by a president, or, as I mentioned above and will discuss in the next installment, possibly by a superior other than the president.
And the presidents themselves? A few months earlier, Dwight Eisenhower had secretly endorsed the blueprints of this multi-genocide machine. He had furthermore demanded largely for budgetary reasons that there be no other plan for fighting Russians. He had approved this single strategic operational plan despite reportedly being, for reasons I now understood, privately appalled by its implications.
And the Joint Chiefs had responded so promptly to his successor's question about the human impact of our planned attacks because they clearly assumed that John Kennedy would not, in response, order them to resign or be dishonorably discharged, or order the machine to be dismantled. (In that, it turned out, they were right.)
Surely neither of these presidents actually desired ever to order the execution of these plans, nor would any likely successor want to take such an action. But they must have been aware, or should have been, of the dangers of allowing such a system to exist.
They should have reflected on, and trembled before, the array of contingencies-accidents, false alarms, outages of communications, Soviet actions misinterpreted by lower commanders, unauthorized action-that might release pent-up forces beyond their control; and on possible developments that could lead them personally to escalate or launch a pre-emptive attack.
Eisenhower had chosen to accept these risks. To impose them on humanity, and all other forms of life. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson to my direct knowledge did likewise. So did Richard Nixon. To bring this story up to the present, there is much evidence-and none to the contrary-that the same has been true of every subsequent president.
Two more aspects of their gambles were not known to me in 1961. Later accounts in this series will reveal that in the Quemoy crisis three years earlier and the Cuban missile crisis one year later-and to lesser extent in a couple of dozen other episodes-these risks came secretly closer to being realized than almost anyone recognizes to this day.
Moreover, the scale of the potential catastrophe was and remains vastly greater than I or the JCS or any presidents imagined over the next 20 years.
Not until 1982-83 did new calculations-recently confirmed-reveal that hemispheric and possibly global clouds of smoke and soot from the burning cities attacked by U.S. or Russian forces would block out sunlight for a prolonged period, lowering temperature drastically during spring and summer, freezing lakes and rivers and destroying crops worldwide.
This "nuclear winter" could extinguish many forms of life and starve to death billions of humans.
Yet the "option" of massive attacks on cities (or, euphemistically, upon industrial and military targets within or near cities) almost surely remains one among many planned alternatives, ready as ever to be carried out, within the strategic repertoire of U.S. and Russian plans and force readiness: this, a quarter-century after the discovery of the nuclear winter phenomenon.
The U.S. and Russia currently each have about 10,000 warheads, over 2,000 of them operationally deployed. (Each has several thousand in reserve status-not covered in recent negotiations-and an additional 5,000 or so awaiting dismantlement).
Presidents Barack Obama and Dmitry Medvedev have agreed to lower the operational warheads to between 1,500 and 1,675 by the year 2012. But the explosion of 1,000 warheads together by the U.S. and Russia could trigger a full-scale nuclear winter.
And recent studies show the possibility of ecological catastrophe from smoke effects on the ozone layer after a very much smaller exchange, such as could occur between India and Pakistan.
A 2007 peer-reviewed study concluded that "the estimated quantities of smoke generated by attacks totaling little more than one megaton of nuclear explosives [two countries launching 50 Hiroshima-size bombs each] could lead to global climate anomalies exceeding any changes experienced in recorded history. The current global arsenal is about 5000 megatons."
A December 2008 study in Physics Today estimates that "the direct effects of using the 2012 arsenals [1,700 to 2,200 Russian and American warheads each] would lead to hundreds of millions of fatalities. The indirect effects [long-term, from smoke] would likely eliminate the majority of the human population."
It is the long-neglected duty of the American Congress to test these scientific findings against the realities of our secret war plans.
It is Congress' responsibility to investigate the nature of the planned targets for the reduced operational forces proposed by Obama and Medvedev-1,500 to 1,675-or some lower but still huge number like 1,000, and the foreseeable human and environmental consequences of destroying those targets with the attacks currently programmed.
The questions to be addressed initially are simple: "How many cities would burn under our various preplanned 'options'? How many humans would die from these various attacks-from blast, fire, fallout, smoke, soot and ozone depletion-in the target country, in its regional neighbors, in America, and worldwide?"
And these, less simple: "For each of these possible attack options and exchanges, what is the likely, and the range of possible, impact on the regional and global environment? Which of our options, if any, threaten to produce regional or worldwide nuclear winter?
Do we-or does any state-have a right to possess such an 'option'? Should a U.S. or Russian president have the authority-or the power, as each now has-to order attacks that might have the global effects described above?"
Our representatives in Congress should-for the first time-take on responsibility for learning about and influencing the possible human and environmental consequences of carrying out our operational nuclear war plans.
But past experience makes clear that Senate or House members will not hold real investigative hearings, using committee subpoena powers, to penetrate the curtains of secrecy around these matters without a new level of pressure from American citizens.
(To join some worthy efforts-which have not heretofore, in my judgment, focused sufficiently on congressional investigation or war planning-see here, here and here.
This is not a responsibility only for Americans and their representatives. The stakeholders directly threatened by the possibility, however unlikely, that Americans and Russians might launch a major fraction of their presently deployed nuclear forces against each other comprise all the citizens of every state on Earth.
Every parliament in the world has an urgent need to know what its constituents have to expect-in the way of homicidal and environmental damage-from a U.S.-Russian nuclear exchange: or for that matter, from an India-Pakistan exchange.
These assemblies have a stake in discovering-and changing-the societal and ecological impact of the existent contingency war plans of every nuclear weapons state, the U.S. and Russia above all but the others as well. What is needed is a worldwide movement.
Fortunately there are several efforts to join (see here, here, here, here and here), in keeping with President Obama's declared goal of a world free of nuclear weapons.
The Soviets, Too, and Others
I felt sure in 1961 that the existent potential for moral and physical catastrophe-our government's readiness to commit multi-genocidal extermination on a hemispheric scale by nuclear blast and fallout (no one knew yet of the global danger of ecocide and mass extinctions from smoke and ozone depletion)-was not only a product of aberrant Americans or a peculiarly American phenomenon. I was right.
A few years later, after the Soviets were humiliated by the Cuban missile crisis and Nikita Khrushchev was ousted, the Kremlin set out to imitate our destructive capacity in every detail and surpass it when possible.
To be sure, Americans, and U.S. Air Force planners in particular, were the only people in the world who believed that they had won a war by bombing, and, particularly in Japan, by bombing civilians. In World War II and for years afterward, there were only two air forces in the world, the British and American, that could so much as hope to do that.
But the nuclear era put that demonic temptation-to deter, defeat or punish an adversary on the basis of an operational capability to annihilate most of its population-eventually within the reach of a great many nations. By the spring of '61, four states (soon to be five, now nine) had, at great expense, bought themselves that capability.
Humans just like these American planners-and presidents-were surely at work in every nuclear weapons state producing plans like these for nuclear attacks on cities.
I knew personally many of the American planners, though apparently-from the fatality chart-not quite as well as I had thought.
What was frightening was precisely that I knew they were not evil, in any ordinary, or extraordinary, sense. They were ordinary Americans, capable, conscientious and patriotic. I was sure they were not different, surely not worse, than the people in Russia who were doing the same work, or the people who would sit at the same desks in later U.S. administrations.
I liked most of the planners and analysts I knew. Not only the physicists at RAND who designed bombs and the economists who speculated on strategy (like me), but the colonels who worked on these very plans, whom I consulted with during the workday and drank beer with in the evenings.
That chart set me the problem, which I have worked on for nearly half a century, of understanding my fellow humans-us, I don't separate myself-in the light of this real potential for self-destruction of our species and of most others.
Looking not only at the last eight years but at the steady failure in the two decades since the ending of the Cold War to reverse course or to eliminate this potential, it is hard for me to avoid concluding that this potential is more likely than not to be realized in the long run.
Are further proliferation and-what I have focused on here-the persistence of superpower nuclear arsenals that threaten global catastrophe a near-certainty? Is it too late to eliminate these dangers, in time?
Some dark days I think so, as I did that morning in the White House. Most of the time I don't, or I would not have tried as I have and still do to eliminate them, and I would not be using my time to begin this account of them.
The story does get worse; see, for example, my next installment, "How Many Fingers on the Buttons?"
The more one learns about the hidden history of the nuclear era-this is the cumulative message of this ongoing series-the more miraculous it seems that the doomsday machines which we and the Russians have built and maintained have not yet triggered each other. At the same time, the clearer it becomes that we could and that we must dismantle them.

(...) The system remains so shrouded that Yarynich worries his continued openness puts him in danger. He might have a point: One Soviet official who spoke with Americans about the system died in a mysterious fall down a staircase. But Yarynich takes the risk. He believes the world needs to know about Dead Hand. Because, after all, it is still in place. The system that Yarynich helped build came online in 1985, after some of the most dangerous years of the Cold War. (...) Yes, I agree, a human could decide in the end not to press the button. But that person is a soldier, isolated in an underground bunker, surrounded by evidence that the enemy has just destroyed his homeland and everyone he knows. Sensors have gone off; timers are ticking. There's a checklist, and soldiers are trained to follow checklists. Wouldn't any officer just launch? I ask Yarynich what he would do if he were alone in the bunker. He shakes his head. "I cannot say if I would push the button." It might not actually be a button, he then explains. It could now be some kind of a key or other secure form of switch. He's not absolutely sure. After all, he says, Dead Hand is continuously being upgraded.
US-Russia: Cold War or Warm Reset? (30 September 2009) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rt6S5BbwEWc
While many are optimistic about the reset in Russia-US relations, some say there is no change at all. RT's Sophie Shevarnadze spoke with Stephen Cohen, a professor of Russian Studies at New York University, and Katrina Vanden Heuvel from 'The Nation' periodical.

Dangerous Missile Battle In Space: Fifth Act In U.S. Missile Shield Drama (September 30, 2009) http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=15462
(...) As their deployment can no longer exploit the pretext of defending U.S. long-range missile sites from imaginary Iranian "preemptive" attacks, its purpose is demonstrated to be the what missile shield opponents have always asserted it was: To "protect" Poland from Russia. The Polish newspaper that first revealed the shift in U.S. missile designs in Europe weeks before the event, the Gazeta Wyborcza, reported on September 25 some details of the new system as it will affect Poland:"The concept would include a stationary rocket battery and possibly a number of mobile interceptor launchers. This might be a supplement to the envisaged American system of SM-3 naval based anti-rockets. Polish military experts say that equally important would be US military presence in Poland, which would provide an additional security guarantee." What mobile missile launchers ready for practically overnight deployment to Russia's neighbor might look like was indicated at last month's annual Space and Missile Defense Conference held by the Pentagon's Missile Defense Agency in Huntsville, Alabama where the prototype of a nearly 50,000-pound "two-stage interceptor designed to be globally deployable within 24 hours"  to be stationed as needed at NATO bases throughout Europe was presented by the arms manufacturer eager to produce it, Chicago-based Boeing Company. In his September 17th briefing at the Pentagon, Defense Secretary Gates also announced plans to "deploy new sensors and interceptors, in northern and southern Europe." He tactfully did not specify where in the north and south of the continent the "capabilities...to detect, track and shoot down enemy missiles" would be placed, but their likely destinations are not hard to determine. The former head of the Russian Strategic Missile Force, General Viktor Yesin, commented last week on one probability:"Now we only need to be sure that the U.S. plans with regard to strengthening the ABM capability will not create a situation where warships armed with such systems will be moved from the North and Mediterranean seas to the Black Sea, which would pose a threat to Russia's strategic nuclear forces."  An analyst from the same country, Sergei Roy, gave vent to similar apprehensions in a roundtable discussion in Russia Profile on September 25:"If anything, that episode [projected U.S. radar in the Czech Republic to be aimed at Russia and not Iran], like so many others in recent history, should teach Russians to view any U.S. move in ABM defense (as in any other 'defense' area) with sober caution rather than credulous enthusiasm. My first idea on hearing of Obama opting for sea-based Standard-3 anti-missiles instead of those in Poland was: 'hey, which sea?' If it's the Mediterranean and the North Sea, that's OK, but what about the Black Sea or, God forbid, the Baltic? Those missiles will be much closer to Russia, while still in international waters or those of Ukraine or Georgia (why not Estonia's, then?), and who will give a written guarantee that they are strictly anti-missile missiles? What about those early warning radar stations? Will they be based in Israel and Turkey - or in Georgia and/or Ukraine?" CLIP
National Day Parade Shows Off China's Military Hardware (September 30, 2009) http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/09/30/AR2009093003553_pf.html
BEIJING -- China's military brought its latest weaponry to the National Day parade through Tiananmen Square on Thursday, including medium- and long-range missiles, fighter planes and armored vehicles, alongside goose-stepping troops. The missiles and equipment are the latest manifestations of China's more than 10-year-old effort to modernize its military, prompted in part by a confrontation with the United States in 1996 after Washington sent aircraft carriers to protect Taiwan from Chinese missile threats. Ahead of Thursday's parade, U.S. analysts have been most concerned about infantry fighting vehicles, long-range missiles and missiles that might be aimed at aircraft carriers. (...) But while such demonstrations and the display of tanks and other weapons in Tiananmen Square struck a chord among Chinese, they worried some in the United States."The People's Liberation Army is moving from regional power projection to global power projection," said Fisher, who has long warned against China's military advances. He cited a light-weight infantry fighting vehicle designed to pop out of a transport plane and logistical-support vehicles. "The message: They're not all tooth. They have plenty of tail to worry us as well," he said.New Chinese capabilities could undercut the protection the United States offers its allies in the region, he said. He also warned of an amphibious fighting vehicle capable of firing missiles farther than Taiwan's land-bound tanks. Xiao Gongqin, a historian at Shanghai Normal University, cautioned against misinterpreting the military parade. "It's not like some Westerners think, that China will be expansionist internationally," he said. "Mainly the aim is to increase the Chinese people's confidence. [Chinese President] Hu Jintao has emphasized on many occasions that China will adhere to the principles of peaceful diplomacy."Chas W. Freeman Jr., a veteran diplomat, China expert and former senior Pentagon official, said that he did not see a threat to the United States and noted that Chinese military spending is still a fraction of U.S. military spending. Indeed, the Reuters news agency reported Wednesday that two unnamed senior officers with the People's Republican Army had said China would reduce its main 2.5-million-member force by 700,000, though some increases in other forces could offset a portion of that.
China Shows Off Nuclear-Capable Missiles in Parade (Oct. 1, 2009) http://gsn.nti.org/gsn/nw_20091001_1632.php
China yesterday rolled out some its most sophisticated nuclear-capable ICBMs for a parade marking the 60th anniversary of the nation's government, the Xinhua News Agency reported (see GSN, Aug. 27).The missiles -- painted in camouflage colors and displayed on 18 mobile-launch trucks -- had undergone modifications aimed at improving their speed, range and responsiveness, said Col. Zhang Guangzhong.China's nuclear-capable strategic missile fleet "represents the highest level of the country's homegrown weapons," Zhang said."Many of our domestically made arms have been produced on the basis of technologies and experience of developed countries, but China had chosen a completely independent way in developing strategic nuclear weapons," he said.The Chinese People's Liberation Army termed its nuclear arsenal a "trump card"; still, Beijing intends to "show restraint" in developing its nuclear deterrent, said military parade spokesman Maj. Gen. Gao Jianguo."China has never deployed nuke weaponry outside its territory. It has not joined the nuclear race and will never in the future," Gao said. "We have adhered to the policy of no-first-use of nuclear weapons at anytime and under any circumstance, and made the unequivocal commitment that we will unconditionally not use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against non-nuclear-weapon states or nuclear weapon-free zones," President Hu Jintao told the U.N. Security Council last week.
China stages picture-perfect 60th anniversary gala (October 2, 2009) WITH VIDEO http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/asia/article6856503.ece
There were fireworks the likes of which the world has never seen; 500 tanks in Tiananmen Square and 5,000 troops on the march - saluted by 151 military aircraft - streaking low across the skies. Chinas Communist Party pulled off a picture-perfect parade to celebrate the 60th anniversary of its rule, stamping its authority and instilling pride among its people.The highlight of the day was the military parade, a demonstration of the strides China is making in modernising its army since the last similar occasion 10 years ago. State media boasted of the latest hardware that was on display as 52 new-generation weapons systems trundled through the centre of Beijing and Tiananmen Square along with goose-stepping troops from the Peoples Liberation Army. (...) Most excitement centred on the newest-model nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles, with a range that puts Washington within their sights. There were also new unmanned aerial drones, amphibious fighting vehicles and new DH-10 land-based anti-ship cruise missiles. Around 5,000 troops took part in the show of strength, half the number of a decade ago a message that China is focusing its military modernisation on quality rather than quantity. CLIP

UN urges Israel to allow nuclear inspection (September 18, 2009) http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=15280
VIENNA (Agencies) -- The U.N. nuclear assembly voted on Friday to urge Israel to accede to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and place all atomic sites under U.N. inspections, in a surprise victory for Arab states. The resolution, passed narrowly for the first time in nearly two decades, expresses concern about "Israeli nuclear capabilities" and calls on International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohamed al-Baradei to work on the issue.Initially, Western states tried to stop the resolution from going to a vote, arguing it would be counterproductive to single out Israel, particularly after a resolution had been passed the day before calling on all states in the Middle East to foreswear nuclear weapons. But the adjournment motion was defeated and voting went ahead, with a total 49 countries in favour, 45 against and 16 abstentions. It is the first time since 1991 that such a resolution has been adopted.Israel's arch-enemy Iran had spoken in favour of the resolution, describing Israel's nuclear capabilities as "a potential threat to the peace and security of the world." It also undermined the integrity and credibility of the non-proliferation regime and the NPT, argued Tehran's ambassador to the IAEA, Ali Asghar Soltanieh. After the vote, Soltanieh described the resolution as "very good news and a triumph for the oppressed nation of Palestine."Russia and China also backed the resolution.Israel refuses cooperationIsrael is one of only three countries worldwide along with India and Pakistan outside the nuclear NPT and is widely assumed to have the Middle East's only nuclear arsenal, though it has never confirmed or denied it. "The delegation of Israel deplores this resolution," David Danieli, deputy director of Israel's atomic energy commission, told the chamber after the vote."Israel will not cooperate in any matter with this resolution which is only aiming at reinforcing political hostilities and lines of division in the Middle East region."

U.S. missile defense system to likely be deployed in Israel (September 17, 2009) http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=15260
Last week The Jerusalem Post reported that the Defense Ministry was preparing for the possibility that the United States would decide to deploy missile defense systems in Israel.Senior officials had told the Post that the United States might leave missile defense systems in Israel following a joint missile defense exercise the two countries will hold next month. The Czech Prime Minister Jan Fischer says President Barack Obama has told him that the US is abandoning plans to put a missile shield in the Czech Republic and Poland. Czech Premier told reporters in Prague on Thursday that Obama phoned him to say that Washington has decided to scrap the plan that had deeply angered Russia. Fischer says Obama confirmed that Washington no longer intends to put 10 interceptor missiles in Poland and a radar system in the Czech Republic. CLIP
Developing its Advanced Weapons Arsenal: Israel Takes Delivery of 2 German-Built U212 Subs http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=15466
JERUSALEM -- Israel has taken delivery of two German-built submarines, a military spokesman said Sept. 29. "We have received two Dolphin-class submarines," he said on condition of anonymity. The submarines, called U212s, can launch cruise missiles carrying nuclear warheads, although when it confirmed the sale in 2006 the German government said the two vessels were not equipped to carry nuclear weapons. Delivery was initially expected in 2010. Including the new subs, Israel has five German submarines - the most expensive weapon platforms in Israel's arsenal..... According to Jane's Defence Weekly, the U212s are designed for a crew of 35, have a range of 2,810 miles and can launch cruise missiles carrying nuclear warheads.Israeli media have written that the Dolphin submarine could be key in any attack on Iran's controversial nuclear sites. An Israeli submarine recently used the Suez Canal for the first time in June, escorted by Egyptian navy vessels, in what Israeli media said was intended as a message to Iran. Widely considered the Middle East's sole, if undeclared, nuclear power, Israel suspects Iran of trying to develop atomic weapons under the guise of a civilian nuclear program, a charge Tehran denies.
Sneh: Take the Opportunity on Iran (Sep/30/09) http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/Flash.aspx/171714
In an interview, former deputy Defense Minister Efraim Sneh said that Israel must not rely on anyone else in its dealings with Iran, especially in light of the discovery of the new enrichment plant in Qom. "To rely on the world to do the job for us is a wish we cannot submit to," he said. "Now, with the latest revelations, Israel has the right to act, as we point out to the rest of the world how right we were about Iran all along," Sneh added.
Will not surrender nuclear rights: Iran (September 8, 2009) http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=15110
DUBAI: Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has announced that Tehran's "undeniable" nuclear rights are non-negotiable and nuclear talks with global powers in the future would be narrowed down to "cooperation on peaceful use of atomic energy" and "non-proliferation"."In our view the nuclear question is finished. We will not negotiate over Iran's undeniable rights," Mr. Ahmadinejad said on Monday at a press conference in Tehran."What we have announced is cooperation in two parts: cooperation on peaceful use of clean atomic energy and preventing a proliferation of atomic weapons."The head of Iran's national security council, Saeed Jalili, had earlier said that Iran had prepared a new package of proposals, which it would present to the five permanent members of the Security Council and Germany in order to kick-start talks. These countries have been exerting pressure on Iran to take "initiatives" within this month to "co-operate" or face fresh sanctions. The new sanctions could target exports of refined petroleum products, including ready-for-use gasoline, which Iran imports in bulk quantities.Mr. Ahmadinejad reiterated that Iran was committed to present its new proposals, but rejected imposition of any deadline for talks. Analysts say that instead of talks being confined to a single subject, Iran is looking for a comprehensive dialogue with the West which would result in normalisation of ties, based on recognition of its status as a regional power. The Iranian President urged the European countries and the Americans to "climb down from fragile glass towers."
Iranian Official: Nuclear Facility For Power Plant Fuel (October 1, 2009) http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=113374399&ft=1&f=1009
Iran's foreign minister says a new uranium enrichment facility near the city of Qom is being constructed to produce fuel for the country's nuclear power plants. (...) Steve Inskeep: Would you explain for us simply, what are you building there? Manouchehr Mottaki: According to the law approved by the parliament, the government has to generate 20,000 megawatts of electricity for the country in order to meet the domestic requirements. It means that Iran needs to build at least 10 nuclear power plants. In order to generate the fuel needed for these power plants, we need to build these facilities in the country. And fortunately, over the past years, Iran has succeeded in being self-sufficient for producing the nuclear fuel. You have stated, I understand, that this is for civilian purposes to develop fuel for as many as 10 nuclear power plants. But in order to enrich uranium for even one or two power plants, you would need 50,000 centrifuges. And it's my understanding that at this site, there is a plan for only 3,000 not nearly enough to build fuel for a civilian power plant, but enough to create fuel for an atomic weapon. Am I mistaken about that? The numbers about 3,000 centrifuges is not correct. How many centrifuges are you going to build then, at that specific facility at Qom?I have no technical expertise to explain the exact situation. But I am sure that that is going to be done within the framework of our requirements. But you've said 3,000 is wrong. What is the right number?I think the last figures, sometime ago, they talked about 7,000 centrifuges.That still sounds, if I don't misunderstand this issue, a little low for creating 10 civilian nuclear power plants.I think we should focus or pay attention to the trends; we cannot count them one by one. Meaning that you have a number of facilities around the country, at which you are working at once?No, I don't mean that. I'm just referring to the number of centrifuges.I'd like to ask another question if I might, Mr. Foreign Minister. If this is for civilian power, why is it being constructed on a Revolutionary Guard base, a military base? One of our focuses is the geographical position for security purposes. In the past two years we have been facing threats on the part of some countries. The former U.S. administration always threatened Iran. And in the past few months, the Zionist regime repeated its threats against Iran. Although, they know very well that if they do that, they would regret. But, I am not going to confirm or endorse the news that this site has been constructed on a military site. But, surely, it is in a place where security can be maintained. CLIP
Irans Meeting with U.S. and Allies for Nuclear Talks in Geneva http://www.IranNewsDigest.com/2009/10/01/irans-meeting-with-u-s-and-allies-for-nuclear-talks-in-geneva/
Thursdays meeting between Iran and the five members of the United Nations Security Council, plus Germany and the European Union will mark the beginning of an extraordinarily difficult process and further meetings are likely, a senior American official said. Washington would still like to begin bilateral talks with Iran on a broader relationship, including trade and Tehrans support for Palestinian, Lebanese and Iraqi insurgent and terrorist groups, from Hezbollah to Islamic Jihad. But after new disclosures of a hidden Iranian enrichment facility dug deep into a guarded mountain near Qum, the negotiations cannot be an open-ended process, or talks just for the sake of talks, especially in light of the revelations about Qum, said the official, who briefed reporters Wednesday on condition of anonymity. We need to see practical steps and measurable results and we need to see them starting quickly, he said. CLIP
Is the media exaggerating the Iranian nuke threat? By Juan Cole (Sept. 29, 2009) http://www.salon.com/opinion/feature/2009/09/29/cole/
If Iran is open to U.N. inspections, it's probably not constructing nuclear weapons -- Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, reaffirmed Monday that a date would soon be set for the International Atomic Energy Agency to inspect the planned nuclear enrichment facility near Qom about which the Iranian government informed the IAEA on Monday a week ago. If Iran really does permit full, ongoing IAEA inspections of the facility, then it cannot be used for weapons production. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton admitted Sunday that Iran cannot use the Natanz plant for bomb-making because it is being regularly inspected by the UN. Scott Ritter, an experienced inspector himself, dispels the myths about the new Qom facility and urges against new economic sanctions on Iran as counter-productive. Greater transparency and more inspections should be the demand of the West, he says. I made the same point on MSNBC on Monday with Nora O'Donnell: (EMBEDDED VIDEO HERE) And no here's something you won't read in major American newspapers or see on American television. The USG Open Source Center translated remarks to Iranian television of General Hoseyn Salami, commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Air Force concerning Iran's Monday missile tests (Islamic Republic of Iran News Network Television (IRINN), Monday, September 28, 2009): Gen. Salami said, "as long as our enemies act within a political domain, our behavior will be completely political. However, if they want to leave the domain of political action and enter the domain of military threat, then our action will be exactly and completely military." Many Western media reports implied that the missile tests were launched along with threats to wipe out Israel. But note that the commanding officer overseeing them explicitly restated Iran's "no first strike" pledge. To my knowledge, no current high official in the Iranian executive has threatened war against Israel, which in any case would be foolhardy given Israel's nuclear arsenal. Iranian officials do say they hope the "Zionist regime" will collapse as the Soviet Union did. The report also said: Salami said the strategic objective in staging the war game was "to demonstrate the Iranian nation's resolution in defending revolutionary and national values and ideals as well as to make a new attempt to upgrade the level and quality of the Islamic Republic's deterrence against any probable threat given the current political and international atmosphere." Salami linked the tests strongly to Iran's defensive needs and pointed out they came before the anniversary of Iraq's 1980 attack on Iran, which kicked off a highly destructive 8-year war that killed on the order of 250,000 Iranians. (The United States supported Iraq in that war.) The trauma of being invaded by a rapacious enemy at a moment of national weakness after the 1979 revolution has deeply informed Iranian political leaders' views of the world ever since.
Why China is unlikely to back Iran sanctions http://www.csmonitor.com/2009/0930/p06s12-woap.html
China is showing no appetite for the tougher sanctions that Western leaders have been threatening against Iran over its nuclear program, and would likely veto any United Nations effort to impose a stiffer embargo even if Thursday's talks between US Security Council members and Iran go badly.
U.N. Chief Encourages Creation of Additional Nuclear Weapon-Free Zones (Sept. 10, 2009) http://gsn.nti.org/gsn/nw_20090910_8784.php
U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon yesterday called on countries around the world to establish new regional bans on development or possession of nuclear weapons, the Xinhua News Agency reported. There are now five nuclear weapon-free zones, covering Latin American and the Caribbean, the South Pacific, Central Asia, Southeast Asia and Africa."We are hoping to see progress on this topic, especially in the Middle East," Ban said during a disarmament event in Mexico City. "Many of the world's 12,000 nuclear weapons are still on hair-trigger alert, threatening the survival of our species," he added. "We are very pleased that the U.N. Security Council will hold a meeting on Sept. 24 to discuss nuclear nonproliferation and disarmament," Ban said. U.S. President Barack Obama is expected to chair the discussion. CLIP
Remarks to the United Nations Security Council By President Barack Obama (September 24, 2009) http://www.wagingpeace.org/articles/2009/09/24_obama_unsc_remarks.php
(...) The next 12 months will be absolutely critical in determining whether this resolution and our overall efforts to stop the spread and use of nuclear weapons are successful. And all nations must do their part to make this work. In America, I have promised that we will pursue a new agreement with Russia to substantially reduce our strategic warheads and launchers. We will move forward with the ratification of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, and open the door to deeper cuts in our own arsenal. In January, we will call upon countries to begin negotiations on a treaty to end the production of fissile material for weapons. And the Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference in May will strengthen that agreement. Now, we harbor no illusions about the difficulty of bringing about a world without nuclear weapons. We know there are plenty of cynics, and that there will be setbacks to prove their point. But there will also be days like today that push us forward -- days that tell a different story. It is the story of a world that understands that no difference or division is worth destroying all that we have built and all that we love. It is a recognition that can bring people of different nationalities and ethnicities and ideologies together. In my own country, it has brought Democrats and Republican leaders together -- leaders like George Shultz, Bill Perry, Henry Kissinger, and Sam Nunn, who are with us here today. And it was a Republican President, Ronald Reagan, who once articulated the goal we now seek in the starkest of terms. I quote: "A nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought. And no matter how great the obstacles may seem, we must never stop our efforts to reduce the weapons of war. We must never stop until all -- we must never stop at all until we see the day when nuclear arms have been banished from the face of the Earth." CLIP
More in the September 2009 and October 2009 issues of the The Sunflower, a monthly e-newsletter providing educational information on nuclear weapons abolition and other issues relating to global security.
The UN Security Council has unanimously adopted a resolution calling for nuclear disarmament, in a session chaired by US President Barack Obama.
The resolution calls for further efforts to stop the spread of nuclear arms, to boost disarmament and to lower the risk of "nuclear terrorism".
It was the first time a US president had chaired a Security Council summit.
The resolution comes amid growing concerns among Western powers over Iran's nuclear ambitions.
"The historic resolution we just adopted enshrines our shared commitment to the goal of a world without nuclear weapons," Mr Obama told the Security Council after the resolution was adopted.
He said the next year would be "absolutely critical in determining whether this resolution and our overall efforts to stop the spread and use of nuclear weapons are successful".
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called the resolution "a fresh start toward a new future".
The resolution does not specifically mention countries by name, such as North Korea and Iran, but reaffirms previous Security Council resolutions relating to their nuclear plans.
Iran's nuclear programme has been criticised by the US and five nations who are set to hold talks next week.
Iran says its nuclear ambitions are for peaceful energy purposes, but others fear it is developing weapons.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reflected those fears in his speech to the UN General Assembly on Thursday, saying that stopping Iran acquiring nuclear weapons was the world's most urgent task.
After the resolution was passed, Iran rejected allegations about its nuclear programme as "totally untrue" and reiterated its "readiness to engage in serious and constructive negotiations with interested parties".
The resolution commits member nations to work toward a world without nuclear weapons, and endorses a broad framework of actions to reduce global nuclear risks.
It also urges states to join and comply with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT); refrain from testing nuclear weapons and ratify the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT); ensure safeguards of nuclear material and prevent trafficking.
Mr Obama stressed that the US would play its part, seeking a new strategic arms reduction treaty with Russia and moving ahead with ratification of the test ban treaty.
"Although we averted a nuclear nightmare during the Cold War, we now face proliferation of a scope and complexity that demands new strategies and new approaches," Mr Obama said.
"Just one nuclear weapon exploded in a city, be it New York or Moscow, Tokyo or Beijing, London or Paris, could kill hundreds of thousands of people."
Also on Thursday, a UN ministerial conference adopted a declaration urging compliance with the CTBT, which has been signed or ratified by 100 countries since 1996.
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton presence at the meeting marked the first US participation at the biannual conference since 1999, when the US Senate refused to ratify the treaty.
On Wednesday, the first day of the UN General Assembly, Iran's plans came under fire from several world leaders, including French President Nicolas Sarkozy and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
Russia signalled that it might be prepared to soften its opposition to sanctions against Iran over its nuclear plans, though China, another Security Council member, said increasing pressure on Iran would not be effective.
But in a statement circulated outside the Security Council on Thursday, Iran said France and the UK had not complied with their own nuclear disarmament obligations, and were therefore not in a position to judge others.
It accused Mr Sarkozy of making "preposterous" claims, and said the UK "deliberately and cynically [had] ignored its legal commitments" to the NPT.
"Our commitment to non-proliferation remains intact," the statement said.
"The unanimous backing for the US-drafted resolution is a measure of the growing sense of urgency.
There is a growing fear amongst disarmament experts both inside and outside government that the whole machinery intended to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons - whose cornerstone is the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty or NPT - is looking increasingly fragile. The NPT agreement is up for revision in May and the new consensus at the UN Security Council sends a powerful signal that this key agreement must be bolstered."
Q&A: Nuclear disarmament http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/in_depth/6103398.stm
In 2010, the next five-yearly review conference of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty will be held. President Obama has spoken of his hopes for a nuclear-weapons free world.
Is a nuclear-weapons free world possible?
It is possible but unlikely for the foreseeable future. Even President Obama said that he did not expect to see it in his lifetime and also said that as long as such weapons existed, the US would keep its own nuclear arsenal. In the meantime, he is reported to be wanting far fewer US nuclear warheads (in the hundreds rather than thousands) and he wants the US Senate to ratify the comprehensive test ban treaty. There is no suggestion that nuclear-weapon states are ready to disarm completely. Russia and China have both announced upgrades to their nuclear arsenals and so has the UK, with a plan to build four new submarines with Trident missiles. However British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has proposed that, as part of an overall agreed package, Britain might build three submarines not four.
(...) What weapons have the nuclear states given up?
The United States and Russia have substantially reduced their nuclear weapons from the tens of thousands they held during the Cold War. After a series of strategic arms treaties, they agreed the Moscow Treaty in 2002 under which they will both cut their strategic nuclear arsenals to 1,700-2,200 operationally deployed warheads by 2012. The UK has withdrawn nuclear bombs carried by aircraft and has cut the warheads deployed on its four submarines to 48 at any one time and to fewer than 200 in total. France withdrew its nuclear bombers and cut its submarines from five to four. China appears to be the exception. The Pentagon said in 2006 that China was "quantitatively and qualitatively" improving its long-range nuclear missile force.
Do the nuclear-weapon states have any intention of giving up nuclear weapons?
Not as things stand. The only nuclear-weapon state in which there is even debate is the UK, which is about to decide whether to replace its Trident missile submarines.
Are nuclear-weapon states building new nuclear weapons and delivery systems?
Yes. The UK government is expected to decide to replace its Trident submarines. President Putin said in March 2006 that "Russia must be sure that its nuclear arsenal is up to the demands of the modern world". The United States and France also intend to keep their weapons up to date and China is believed to be developing new missiles and warheads. The Pentagon did propose a programme to develop new versions of existing smaller nuclear weapons - one of which is designed as a "bunker buster" - but Congress withdrew funding in 2005. What about other nuclear-armed states?India and Pakistan both have nuclear weapons but they are not parties to the NPT and therefore are not restricted. Israel, which is also not in the NPT, is reckoned to be nuclear-armed but it has not announced this. North Korea has carried out a nuclear test but has withdrawn from the NPT, as any party to it can.

POLITICS-US: Nukes Agency Pushes New Bomb Production
By Matthew Cardinale
ATLANTA, Georgia, Sep 30 (IPS) - Despite statements by U.S. President Barack Obama that he wants to see the world reduce, and eventually eliminate nuclear weapons, the U.S. Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration continues to push forward on a programme called Complex Modernisation, which would expand two existing nuclear plants to allow them to produce new plutonium pits and new bomb parts out of enriched uranium for use in a possible new generation of nuclear bombs.
Initiated under the George W. Bush administration, Complex Modernisation - referred to by anti-nuclear activists as "the Bomb-plex" - would "transform the plutonium and uranium manufacturing aspects of the complex into smaller and more efficient operations while maintaining the capabilities NNSA needs to perform its national security missions," according to a report by the NNSA in the Federal Register.
"The main purpose of the Complex Modernisation programme is to maintain nuclear production capacity for the U.S.," Ralph Hutchison of the Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance told IPS, arguing that the talk of modernisation obscures the real objectives of the programme.
"There are pieces of the modernisation scheme that might address environmental safety or health concerns, or structural integrity of old buildings that might need to be looked at," he acknowledged.
But the more controversial aspect is the creation of a new nuclear production infrastructure at two sites. First is infrastructure for production of new plutonium pits - the central core of nuclear weapons - at the Los Alamos lab in New Mexico, to replace what the NNSA argues is an aging U.S. nuclear stockpile.
According to its 2009 10-year plan obtained by IPS, the new site could produce 80 plutonium pits per year.
Second, is expansion of enriched uranium processing at the Y-12 facility in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
"Complex Modernisation" is the latest public relations slogan for the NNSA's plan; previously it was called Complex 2030 and then Complex Transformation.
The NNSA held two years of public hearings on the Supplemental Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (SPEIS) it was required to produce under the National Environmental Policy Act for Complex Modernisation.
At a hearing attended by this reporter in November 2006 at the Savannah River Site in North Augusta, South Carolina - which was initially considered for the new plutonium pits production - NNSA spokesman Ted Wyka told IPS the agency wanted "to identify a site to build and locate a consolidated plutonium centre, a place where we're going to do manufacturing, production, as well as research and development and surveillance."
"This (SPEIS process) isn't about the types and levels of weapons. That is a presidential decision which is funded by Congress. This is to develop the infrastructure, and to transform the infrastructure," Wyka said. "Our job is to make sure we have the right complex to meet those national security requirements."
The NNSA's final report on the SPEIS process - essentially approving its own "preferred alternative" - was published in December 2008 in the Federal Register, just two weeks before President Obama's inauguration. Here, the NNSA noted that, "With respect to plutonium manufacturing, NNSA is not making any new decisions regarding production capacity until completion of a new Nuclear Posture Review in 2009 or later."
Anti-nuclear activists are looking to Obama's upcoming Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) - which U.S. presidents have conducted at the beginning of their term since Bill Clinton - to set a new course for nuclear weapons policy for the U.S.
Obama will face a decision regarding whether to carry out the production of new plutonium pits, the planning of which was initiated under the Bush administration.
Obama will also face a decision about the proposed new uranium processing in Oak Ridge.
"They want to replace several buildings with one fancy new high-tech 3.5-billion-dollar building they're calling the Uranium Processing Facility," Hutchison said. "And similarly to what [the Federal Register stated] about the plutonium, although they haven't printed this yet, they're waiting on the NPR numbers to come in," before they seek to begin construction.
In the meantime, while Obama works on his NPR, the planning and design of the two new facilities continues.
Obama "included 55 million dollars in his budget for planning for the uranium processing facility in Oak Ridge. What people told him was, if you don't put this much in it, the whole [Complex Modernisation] programme collapses. We need enough money to keep the team together until we make the decision. Congress has doubled that; it's just gone through the process," Hutchison said.
However, an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process specific to the Y-12 facility in Oak Ridge was "put on hold", Hutchison said.
"Since February, every month they say they're going to release it next month. They can't put it out, because they need to say why they need to build this bomb plant or how big it needs to be. They can't do that without the numbers from the NPR," he noted.
"They have an internal struggle. Obama's saying and doing all these things moving towards a vision of a world free of nuclear weapons, but the Department of Defence wants to keep building bombs. All the defence contractors, everybody's making money off of building bombs, they're in the DOD up to their necks. They want that number to come out," Hutchison said.
"They want us to get sucked into this word 'transformation,' as if we're forward looking; or 'modernisation' - what's wrong with modernisation? It's still the Bomb-plex. It's still a cover for allowing us to continue to make bomb parts like pits... it's old wine in new bottles," Bobbie Paul, executive director of Georgia Women's Action for New Directions (WAND), told IPS.
Meanwhile, as previously reported by IPS, Obama has made at least two important international speeches concerning nuclear weapons, in which he has said that the U.S. and the world must work towards being completely free of nuclear weapons.
"I state clearly and with conviction America's commitment to seek the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons," Obama said in a speech in Prague on Apr. 5.
"To achieve a global ban on nuclear testing, my administration will immediately and aggressively pursue U.S. ratification of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty," Obama said.
One hundred and eighty-one other nations have signed and 149 have ratified the treaty.
Last week, Obama became the first U.S. president to chair a U.N. Security Council summit, where a resolution was passed aimed at limiting the spread of nuclear weapons.
Obama has signaled his support for a significant shift towards disarmament as part of his upcoming NPR. In addition, Obama said he wants the U.S. and Russia to significantly reduce their nuclear weapons as part of the renewal of the Russia-U.S. Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty.
However, so far Obama has not taken any steps to stop Complex Modernisation in its tracks and has not addressed the NNSA's plans to develop new nuclear weapons or refurbish old ones. Advocates worry this means new facilities to produce or refurbish nuclear bombs are still on the table.
"It's kind of double-talk. We're talking about reducing our arsenal and not being able to test, but we still have so many bombs on hair-trigger alert... [Complex Modernisation] is another title to give NNSA permission to build new bombs. It flies in the face of what he's told the rest of the world," Paul said.
Advocates worry that Obama - who treads a rocky path and wants a second term in office - may be willing to compromise on Complex Modernisation in return for ratification of the CTBT in the U.S. Senate.
Ratification - which failed in 1999 by 18 votes, receiving only 49 - will require at least 67 votes in the Senate. This means the entire Democratic Caucus, including the two independents, and at least seven Republicans will have to support the measure.
"There's been some talk, in order to get those treaties ratified, some people might allow some new nuclear research and production to go on. [Our position] is no, we stand by Obama. We need to do things consistent with a nuclear-free world," Paul said.
The NNSA did not immediately return two phone calls from IPS seeking comment.

Massive UFO development: China might disclose soon
Michael Cohen (email@example.com)
Something bigger-than-big has happened in China as far as the UFO and extraterrestrial mystery is concerned. So big, you might want to make sure you are sitting down and not holding a hot drink as you read this.
Readers of this website might mow be familiar with the Solar Eclipse UFO Sighting that occurred in Deqing, Guandong Province, where a clear daytime UFO was seen by dozens of students and filmed and photographed by at least nine, producing incredible images such as the one above. The UFO was also seen to morph, changing colour and shape.
Other than this publication no other news publication outside of Asia has carried the story although it has sent shock-waves through China's massive UFO community and even amongst conventional scientists.
Now it has been reported in China that the famous Purple Mountain Observatory has confirmed that they observed a UFO on the day of the eclipse and have forty minutes worth of footage which they will spend the next year studying.
Purple Mountain Observatory Director and Chinese Academy of Sciences Fellow, JI Hai-sheng said at present it is impossible to speculate what the unidentified object is.
Sina.com writes that:
'Purple Mountain Observatory and Chinese Academy of Sciences said yesterday that during the July 22 total solar eclipse observation, China had discovered near the sun, by observing staff, an unidentified object, it's physical nature remains to be further studied.'
'Currently manpower is being organized to deal with this data, complete the data analysis and reveal the scientific results and this will take at least one year's time to finalise.'
'Purple Mountain Observatory, Chinese Academy of Sciences Fellow, JI Hai-sheng said at present it is impossible to speculate what the unidentified object is however research has started.'
UFO activity in China has been extra-ordinary over the last few months with mega-event after mega-event taking place. Have extraterrestrials decided that China will be their partner in first contact?
UFO above Dutch crop circle http://www.cropcircleconnector.com/inter2009/dutch/Zevenbergen2009a.html
(...) So, we have now 5 UFO-pictures, taken from 3 different kinds of cameras. We, the DCCA, can confirm that these are all real.

(ZCNEWS) - Film maker James Fox producer of OUT OF THE BLUE, despite an uphill battle has succeeded in his efforts to air his newest UFO documentary I Know What I Saw on the History Channel this Sunday October 4 at 9:00 PM ET and again on Monday October 5 at 1:00 am ET. James Fox has assembled what many consider to be the most credible UFO witnesses from around the world to testify publicly about their experiences. High ranking Air Force officers, astronauts, military and commercial pilots and FAA officials from seven different countries tell their stories in the film. The History Channel is part of AETN, a joint venture of The Hearst Corporation, The Walt Disney Company and NBC Universal. Considering that mainstream corporate media investigative programs like CBS 60 Minutes and NBC Dateline have chosen to ignore any of the well documented evidence concerning the reality of UFOs or the government cover-up of this politically charged phenomenon, it comes as a surprise that the Hearst Corporation, Disney and NBC Universal would break ranks in this manner with other corporate media to air such a politically sensitive film which calls into question the political legitimacy of keeping the truth behind the UFO phenomenon from the public. Does this breakthrough-film reflect a significant shift in position among large media corporation ownership or has James Fox hit a nerve in the peripheral nervous system of American news industry that might ameliorate the paralysis at CBS, NBC, ABC, the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Pentagon or the White House? If Foxs frequent appearances on CNNs Larry King Live are any indication, they appear to have established a blueprint for his media savvy and determination to challenge political officials and other mainstream media to release and publicly investigate the UFO phenomenon.

The recent release of more UFO files by the UK government generated a huge amount of media coverage. Now another news cycle has begun which may top that. Miyuki Hatoyama, the wife of Japan's next prime minister, claims she has had contact with extraterrestrials and been taken on a trip. This is unprecedented and is being covered worldwide.
Argentina - Woman Visited By 14 'Extraterrestrials (9-29-9) http://www.rense.com/general87/extra.htm
The event occurred at a house in Florencio Varela and the case promises to have worldwide repercussions. They were fourteen aliens in total. Suddenly, in the middle of the night, they were surrounding the bed she shared with her husband and small daughter. They looked at her silently, and at no moment did she feel fear. She wanted to wake up her husband, to have him witness what was occurring before her very eyes, but the Visitors advised her telepathically that he would remain asleep, as he was still not yet ready. Then, the beings revealed all of their secrets to her during a 40 minute time period. This is a "contact" experience between a young woman from the town of Florencio Varela and a group of aliens a case whose mysterious elements have the research community on tenterhooks, and promises to become known worldwide.

Subject: Arison - Falsehoods - Deceptions FWD American Jews Donate $33 Million for Settlements
Dear Jean This woman got my attention from your and others emails. It is yet another example of what I have warned over in my exposures of the new age falsehoods. See highlighted article Shin Bet is like the the old Iran SAVAK or the German Stazi
Ive always been proud of the Jewish obligation to give tzedakah. Its one of the distinctions that sets Judaism apart from other religions of the world. The command to make the world a better place by donating charity is really noble. But this admirable impulse is being perverted by Jewish settlers.
You and I and every U.S. citizen are subsidizing Israeli settlements. No, not because of direct U.S. government funding. But because were allowing pro-settler tax exempt groups to fundraise here in the U.S. and subsidizing every gift thats made.
A search of IRS records identified 28 U.S. charitable groups that made a total of $33.4 million in tax-exempt contributions to settlements and related organizations between 2004 and 2007.
Given the fact that U.S. government policy opposes settlements and finds them unhelpful to the peace process, why are we being so helpful to the settlers?
Here are some of the biggest charitable groups involved in funding settlements on the backs of U.S. taxpayers:
One of the Israeli organizations that has led the way in developing this area of East Jerusalem is called Ir David, or City of David. Like other pro-settlement groups, it has an active fundraising effort in the United States. According to Form 990s filed with the IRS, Friends of Ir David raised $8.7 million in 2004, $1.2 million in 2005 and $2.7 million in 2006.
The groups primary tax-exempt purpose, according to the IRS filings, is: To create a charitable fund to provide financial aid & other reasonable assistance to benefit the Jewish people of the Old City of Jerusalem. To teach about the history and archeology of the biblical city of Jerusalem. To offer aid & assistance for education, housing & the rehabilitation of distressed properties.
According to IRS records, the Hebron Fund donated $860,637 in 2005 and $967,954 in 2006 for social and educational well-being; the funds online mission statement makes clear this is for Israeli settlers inside the city. The Hebron settlement of Kiryat Arba received $730,000 in 2006 from a group called American Friends of Yeshiva High School of Kiryat Arba.
Ignatius doesnt even mention the Central Fund for Israel, apparently an even more successful settlement charity than Ir David, which raised $12-million in 2007 alone (approximately $30 million between 2004-2007) and is supported by some of the biggest names in the American Jewish community including former Bear Stearns CEO Ace Greenberg, James Tisch, Michael Milken, Irving Moskowitz ($370,000 in 2004), Alan Slifka, Larry Zicklin, Gil Glazer, and Kirk Douglas. And another real eye-popper of a donor is Shari Arison, Israels richest citizen.
The Fund was founded, and is run by the Arthur Marcus family. A Fund vice-president (son of the founders?) is Itamar Marcus, a former Shin Bet officer and founder of the militantly anti-Arab Palestine Media Watch. Those who wish a tax deduction for donations to PMW are directed to the Central Fund. So in part, this is a convenient way to both fund a family members pro-settler propaganda work AND allow donors a tax-deduction. Though it does seem questionable for someone who is a Central Fund board member also to receive funding for PMW from the charity.
Women in Green, another militant pro-settler group founded by Nadia Matar, also funnels its donations through the Central Fund. Phil Weiss reported last week that Matar spoke at a N.Y. synagogue and advocated the assassination of Mahmoud Abbas.
So its possible Ignatiuss $33-million is at least double that. Phil Weiss developed the Central Fund story, which unfortunately no one in the Jewish media was interested in publishing.
Christian Evangelicals Pump $100-Million into Israeli Settlements http://www.richardsilverstein.com/tikun_olam/2005/03/07/christian-evang/
(...) There is no escaping the conclusion that the unholy alliance between the Jewish and Christian extreme right wings is short-term, and absolutely runs counter to Israels long-term interests. He correctly notes the oddness of Jews embracing Christians who essentially believe that at the End of Time there no longer be any Jews because they all will have converted to Christianity or been killed for refusing to do so.Vilan also attacks the alliance because the funds invested by the Evangelicals in Israel is entirely spent on settlements, rather than on Israelis living within the Green Line. Furthermore, American dollars grease the wheels of the struggle against disengagement that is waged by the Yesha Council. Vilan also correctly notes that the Settler alliance with Evangelicals and their Republican supporters flies in the face of the American Jewish bond with the Democratic Party: This ideological coalition presents a genuine danger to Israel-U.S. relations. The vast majority of American Jews support the Democratic Party Jews, who constitute only 2.5 percent of American citizens but whose contributions to political parties are much higher than their percentage of the general population would suggest, are one of the most powerful sources of influence in American politics.

DOVISH AMERICAN JEWS RAISE MILLIONS FOR NEW LOBBY TO COUNTER AIPAC http://www.richardsilverstein.com/tikun_olam/2007/01/13/dovish-american-jews-raise-millions-for-new-lobby-to-counter-aipac/
Thanks to reader Ann for pointing out a penetrating Salon article, The Other Israel Lobby, which describes progress made in forming a counter-AIPAC D.C. lobbying group of Jewish peace groups. The project has variously been called the Soros Initiative though the old man himself wisely wishes to avoid having himself and the organization conflated in the minds of the public. It would only give the fledging group more difficulty gaining traction by allowing the detractors to focus their fire on Soros himself rather than the substance of the groups ideas.The author, Gregory Levey, is a former speechwriter for Ehud Olmert and the Israeli UN Mission. He sat in a privileged position of power allowing him access both to Israeli and American Jewish politics. Which makes his analysis all the more striking. Levey notes that AIPACs power is beginning to wane. He suggests that if the new lobbying effort gets off the ground, AIPACs hegemony would be further weakened: CLIP
What Role Did the U.S.-Israeli Relationship Play in 9-11? (12 Sept 2009) http://intifada-palestine.com/2009/09/10/what-role-did-the-u-s-israeli-relationship-play-in-9-11/
(...) America is far less safe than before 9-11. Tel Aviv clearly intends to continue its serial provocations, as evidenced by its ongoing expansion of the settlements. Israel has shown no sign of a willingness to negotiate in good faith or to take the steps required to make peace a possibility. To date, Barack Obama appears unwilling to name senior appointees who are not either Zionists are strongly pro-Israeli. The greatest threat to world peace is not terrorists. The greatest threat is the U.S.-Israeli relationship. In the same way that a decade of pre-staging was required to plausibly induce the U.S. to invade Iraq, a similar strategy is now underway to persuade the U.S. to invade Iran or to support and condone an attack by Israel. The same duplicity is again at work, including the high profile branding of the requisite Evil Doer. From its very outset, the Zionist enterprise focused on hegemony in the Middle East. Its entangled alliance with the U.S. enabled this enterprise to deploy American might for that purpose. Only one nation had the means, motive, opportunity and stable nation state intelligence required to take the U.S. to war in the Middle East while also making it appear that Islam is the problem. If Barack Obama continues to defer to Tel Aviv, he can rightly be blamed when the next attack occurs in the U.S. or the European Union featuring the usual orgy of evidence pointing to a predetermined target. Should another mass murder occur, that event will be traceable directly to the U.S.-Israeli relationship and the failure of U.S policy-makers to free America from this enemy within.
Israeli plan for settlement building angers US (Sep 4) http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090904/ap_on_re_mi_ea/ml_israel_palestinians
JERUSALEM - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will approve hundreds of new housing units in West Bank settlements before slowing settlement construction, two of his aides said Friday, in an apparent snub of Washington's public demand for a total settlement freeze. The aides also said Netanyahu would be willing to consider a temporary freeze in settlement construction, but their definition of a freeze would include building the new units and finishing some 2,500 others currently under construction.

Paul Craig Roberts: Why Not Crippling Sanctions for Israel and the US? (August 31, 2009) http://www.infowars.com/why-not-crippling-sanctions-for-israel-and-the-us/
In Israel, a country stolen from the Palestinians, fanatics control the government. One of the fanatics is the prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. Last week Netanyahu called for crippling sanctions against Iran. The kind of blockade that Netanyahu wants qualifies as an act of war. Israel has long threatened to attack Iran on its own but prefers to draw in the US and NATO. Why does Israel want to initiate a war between the United States and Iran? Is Iran attacking other countries, bombing civilians and destroying civilian infrastructure?No. These are crimes committed by Israel and the US. Is Iran evicting peoples from lands they have occupied for centuries and herding them into ghettoes? No, thats what Israel has been doing to the Palestinians for 60 years.What is Iran doing? Iran is developing nuclear energy, which is its right as a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty. Irans nuclear energy program is subject to inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which consistently reports that its inspections find no diversion of enriched uranium to a weapons program.The position taken by Israel, and by Israels puppet in Washington, is that Iran must not be allowed to have the rights as a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty that every other signatory has, because Iran might divert enriched uranium to a weapons program. In other words, Israel and the US claim the right to abrogate Irans right to develop nuclear energy. The Israeli/US position has no basis in international law or in anything other than the arrogance of Israel and the United States. CLIP
A man feared his wife wasn't hearing as well as she used to and he thought she might need a hearing aid. Not quite sure how to approach her, he called the family doctor to discuss the problem. The Doctor told him there is a simple informal test the husband could perform to give the doctor a better idea about her hearing loss. Here's what you do," said the Doctor, "stand about 40 feet away from her,and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response." That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was in the den. He says to himself, "I'm about 40 feet away, let's see what happens."Then in a normal tone he asks, 'Honey, what's for dinner?" No response.. So the husband moves closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his wife and repeats, "Honey, what's for dinner?" Still no response. Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his wife and asks, "Honey, what's for dinner?" Again he gets no response. So, he walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away. "Honey, what's for dinner?"Again there is no response. So he walks right up behind her. "Honey, what's for dinner?" "Ralph, for the FIFTH time, CHICKEN!"
