2013 – The Lucky Number?

Child of WarReblogged from OccupyMelbourne.net

 

Rumours of war and destruction of all.
It feels like the world is about to fall.
The future is cloudy as we hit the wall.
Slow collapse, empire of the mall.If bombs don’t get you Fukushima will.

It is spewing radiation into the pacific at will.
Ignored by the masses but alternative media shrill.
Telling those who wish to hear about the X-ray pill,
that we are all about to take, making the water boil, all life ill.
Do you think the sea life is edible, whales killed off by radioactive krill?
The lesson from history is that too much greed kills.

Bee colony collapse is happening still.
Accelerating away, plant species are killed.
It’s rumoured Monsanto’s to blame, it was their evil deed.
If bees die off there will be no grain, bees, who can’t breed.
How they have kept it quiet but if all the bees die theres no feed.
The masses will starve, culprits make profits, and then they flee.
Even the lord needs bees to make flour for bread.

They want to resume the hunting of whales, a failed historical plan.
The whales are massive victims of man, luckily theres the Steve Irwin.
Once its started will it open the floodgates of the dam?
No moral license even if its the official meat of Japan.
Antarctica is not your dominion or your land,
These seas are not yours to plunder, I am no fan,
Of those who steal from the rest and create their own brand.

Like Nestle who wants to control all the water.
The CEO says it belongs to the corporates.
No human right for clean water but its ok to pay us,
Litter the planet by plastic bottles consumed by tonnes.
The pacific garbage patch will be melted by the earth’s anger,
when its had enough of abuse and brings forth volcanoes.

You see they are fracking and cracking the earth’s crust.
Chemicals down, poisoned water remains,pumped onto roads and runs off
Into the river, bubbling from broken wells and seeping methane gas.
The rich will not pay it will fall on the rest of us.
They will probably escape into space, or in a tardis

No regard at all for us.
The last ones on the bus.
But I will keep fighting till the planet is lost.
No miracles here, no messiah on toast.
Just us, the brave, the few, the last gasp.
Riding the Titanic down by clinging to the mast.
But the band is still playing the party is not over.
Rip out the cancer and a new future we can craft.
The people are going to have the last laugh.

America Totally Discredited

Obama’s destruction of US credibility goes far beyond diplomacy. It is likely that this autumn or winter, and almost certainly in 2014, the US will face severe economic crisis.

Paul Craig Roberts

OBAMA BP STAR

A foolish President Obama and moronic Secretary of State Kerry have handed the United States government its worst diplomatic defeat in history and destroyed the credibility of the Office of the President, the Department of State, and the entire executive branch. All are exposed as a collection of third-rate liars.

Intoxicated with hubris from past successful lies and deceptions used to destroy Iraq and Libya, Obama thought the US “superpower,” the “exceptional” and “indispensable” country, could pull it off again, this time in Syria.

But the rest of the world has learned to avoid Washington’s rush to war when there is no evidence. A foolish Obama was pushed far out on the limb by an incompetent and untrustworthy National Security Advisor, Continue reading →

Fukushima keeps on leaking, Japan keeps on issuing confusing explanations – Grist

FukushimaOh, fuk … ushima.Problems continue to burble up at Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant — or, in this case, gush out.

We learned last month that contaminated water has been leaking from the plant into the sea at a rate of about 300 tons a day. Then last week came word of a more serious spill of 300 tons of extremely radioactive water, which the government classified as a level 3 incident on the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale.

UN ruling casts doubt on future of wind farms

The future of UK wind farms could be under threat after a United Nations tribunal said that the Government acted illegally by denying the public decision-making powers over their approval.

The ruling by the UN committee, which also criticised the UK’s failure to give people the “necessary information” about the benefits or negative impacts of turbines, could call into question the legal validity of future wind farms unless Government policy is changed.

The United Nations Economic Commission Europe has declared that the UK flouted Article 7 of the Aarhus Convention, which states that members must be allowed to fully participate in environmental issues, it has been reported.

It comes amid a growing Coalition row over wind farms.

Owen Paterson, the Environment Secretary, has commissioned a report on the impact turbines have on the countryside and house prices.

However, the Telegraph understands that officials in the energy department, run by Ed Davey, a Liberal Democrat, have attempted to block the study.

Don’t Show Obama This Report About Who Really Is Behind The Syrian Chemical Attacks

By Tyler Durden

As it was shown mere days ago, it appears the truth of who the real puppet-master in the Middle-East is becoming plainer to see. The incredibly frank discussion between Saudi’s spy-chief Prince Bandar and Russia’s Putin exposed a much deeper plot is afoot and the following details from the actual people on the ground in the chemically-attacked region of Syria suggest Obama is playing right into the Saudi’s plan. While Obama is ‘certain’ that the chemical attacks took place on al-Assad’s orders, as MPN reports, “from numerous interviews with doctors, Ghouta residents, rebel fighters and their families, a different picture emerges. Many believe that certain rebels received chemical weapons via the Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, and were responsible for carrying out the dealing gas attack.”

Chemical Hypocrisy: Lies and Disinformation on the Road to War

 

With the latest allegations that Assad used chemical weapons on his own people in Syria, the world once again stands on the brink of outright military intervention in the country. As the calls for intervention by the usual suspects increases in intensity, military strikes on Damascus are looking more and more inevitable.

KERRY LIES SYRIA[CLICK HERE to continue watching the video on BoilingFrogsPost.com]

 

And with these pompous bloviations, Kerry and the warmongers of the American war machine have raised their collective middle finger not just to the Bashar al-Assad government, not just to his allies in Tehran and Moscow and Beijing, not just to the overwhelming public opinion of their own citizens, but even to the old Continue reading →

UK Parliament Rejects Syria Military Strike, Obama “Willing To Go It Alone”

Moments ago the UK House of Commons, in a razor thin vote, rejected the Cameron proposal for military action in Syria with a vote 285 to 272. Cameron promptly said he would respect the will of the House of Commons and UK Defense Secretary Phillip Hammond confirmed there would be no UK military intervention in Syria. Incidentally, this may have been the best outcome for an already humiliated British premier who will avoid being dragged into an unpopular war having both sided with his greatest ally, the US, and also relented and listened to the voice of the people. More importantly, the “people” in the UK actually had a voice, which is more than can so far be said about developments in the US. And speaking of the US, the NYT reports that even as the Syrian war “option” is slowly being shut out for staunch US allies (except for France of course), that Obama is “willing to move ahead with a limited military strike on Syria even while allies like Britain are debating whether to join the effort [ZH: and have now voted against it] and without an endorsement from the United Nations Security Council” citing senior administration officials.

At the Very Least, Your Days of Eating Pacific Ocean Fish Are Over

235b1a By Gary Stamper

“Fukushima: Your Days of Eating Pacific Ocean Fish Are Over At the Very Least”

The heart-breaking news from Fukushima just keeps getting worse…a LOT worse…it is, quite simply, an out-of-control flow of death and destruction. TEPCO is finally admitting that radiation has been leaking to the Pacific Ocean all along. and it’s NOT over….

I find myself moving between the emotions of sorrow and anger.

It now appears that anywhere from 300 to possibly over 450 tons of contaminated water that contains radioactive iodone, cesium, and strontium-89 and 90, is flooding into the Pacific Ocean from the Fukushima Daichi site everyday. To give you an idea of how bad that actually is, Japanese experts estimate Fukushima’s fallout at 20-30 times as high as as the Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear bombings in 1945

There’s a lot you’re not being told. Oh, the information is out there, but you have to dig pretty deep to find Continue reading →

Update: Egypt Closes Suez Canal To All US Military Ships Citing Defence Pact With Syria

Before It’s Newsالسيسي يغلق قناة السويس في وجه المدمرات الأمريكية المتوجه لسوريا

The first thing Abdel Fattah al-Sisi Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces, not to enter any US military chartered a tanker to the Suez Canal to hit Syria, stressing Egypt’s commitment to joint defence agreement between Egypt and Syria.
If true, and there is no confirming this as of yet, as say bravo to Gen. al-Sisi.   Granted the guy has slaughtered hundreds of his own countrymen the last couple weeks but at least he has the balls to standup to us and islamic extremism.  -Mort
UPDATE: Egypt’s Tamarud, the group of ‘rebels’ who toppled Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Morsi from power on July 3rd, campaign spokesperson, said in a statement that “it is a national duty to support the Syrian army” and denounced “people who betray their country.”

Former Governor: Leaking U.S. nuclear site an “underground Chernobyl waiting to happen” (VIDEO)

Title: KING 5′s Gary Chittim on why Hanford matters to every Washington resident

Author: Susannah FrameJune 9, 1998

Gary Chittim, KING5 Reporter: They’ve already found cesium in the Columbia River. They’ve already found radioactive material in the Columbia River. So it’s not a question of when that will happen. It’s a question of now that it’s happened, what does that mean.

At 3:15 in

Chittim: If u go back and talk to a lot of the government leaders from this state they were all very frustrated […] Talking to [former Washington Governor] Gary Locke, he called it Chernobyl underground, waiting to happen.

Hydrofluorosilicic Acid’s Phosphate Mining & Production Origins, Plus The Co-Contaminants

Actual phosphate industry photos:


Most all hydrofluorosilicic acid used in North America originates in the State of Florida. Phosphate containing rock is strip-mined.


This rock is broken up, placed in huge vats, sulfuric acid is added along with heat to cook off whatever phosphate plus contaminants are in the rock. As the phosphate is extracted, the contaminants used to just be released into the atmosphere; polluting the environment, harming or killing plant and animal life.


Due to environmental regulations, ‘wet scrubber’ chimney pollution control devices are now required to capture contaminants such as silicofluoride, lead, arsenic, and mercury from being emitted during chemical phosphate fertilizer production.


This water-based ‘wet scrubber’ hydrofluorosilicic acid, containing the contaminants, is then taken out of the chimneys and stored in open-air cooling lakes, further exposed to airborne contaminants. Industry produces millions of gallons of this liquid hazardous waste. It costs thousands of dollars per ton to properly neutralize and dispose of hydrofluorosilicic acid, therefore, industry would rather just sell it to you as ‘product’.


Because uranium is co-produced with phosphate production, radioactive cross-contamination of hydrofluorosilicic acid occurs. It also occurs in the open air cooling lakes from local airborne uranium dust.


Phosphate production area airborne radiation detector.


Hydrofluorosilicic acid is drawn from open air cooling lakes, as is. It is containerized in tankers, and shipped to your municipal drinking water supply. Hydrofluorosilicic acid remains contaminated with trace amounts of lead, arsenic, mercury and radioactive materials. It is delivered unrefined, and in none-pharmaceutical grade, to be used as water fluoridation ‘product’.


Hydrofluorosilicic acid is dribbled into your drinking water supply without first testing its contents. This is standard practice. Only after it is added, is the drinking water tested for a handful of maximum allowable contaminants as the last step before you receive this water. There is no requirement to test how much arsenic, lead, and mercury were just added, only that the amounts in your water remain at or below prescribed standards. So, ‘topping up’ water contaminants takes place. No testing is done for the radioactive material. No testing is done for silicofluoride either, based upon assumption that all the silicofluoride completely separates out into fluoride ions and silica; the premise for continuing the use of a cheap toxic silicofluoride instead of expensive but much less toxic calcium fluoride.


Then we serve it all up to our family and ourselves. However, the hydrofluorosilicic acid reaction in the water is also known to leach more lead from lead pipes, lead-based solders, and lead-based brass fittings; still found in today’s water distribution systems. Silicofluoride is also known to help facilitate lead uptake into our body.


Those with tiny body mass, small liver, small kidneys, and a developing brain are affected the most by silicofluoride, fluoride ion, lead, arsenic, mercury and radioactive material.

Dr. J. William Hirzy (2000) Senior Chemist at the U.S. EPA Headquarters states:
“If this stuff (hydrofluorosilicic acid) gets out into the air, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the river, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the lake, it’s a pollutant; but if it goes right straight into your drinking water system, it’s not a pollutant. That’s amazing.”

Rebecca Hanmer (1983) Deputy Assistant Administrator For Water U.S. EPA states:
“In regard to the use of fluosilicic acid as a source of fluoride for fluoridation, this agency regards such use as an ideal environmental solution to a long-standing problem. By recovering by-product fluosilicic acid from fertilizer manufacturing, water and air pollution are minimized.”

The Canadian Environmental Protection Act classifies hydrofluorosilicic acid as “persistent,” “bio-accumulative” and “toxic.”

Environment Canada classifies hydrofluorosilicic acid as a “hazardous substance.”

Transport Canada classifies hydrofluorosilicic acid as a “dangerous good.”

US Environmental Protection Agency classifies hydrofluorosilicic acid as “class one hazardous waste”.

Since hydrofluorosilicic acid’s inorganic silicofluoride, lead, arsenic, mercury and radionuclides pose a threat when diluted in the environment, how do they not pose a threat when diluted in our drinking water?

Next time someone tries to tell you hydrofluorosilicic acid simply disappears when added to drinking water, ask them why the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency believes hydrofluorosilicic acid’s inorganic silicofluoride, lead, arsenic, mercury and radionuclides pose environmental harm to living things when diluted into the atmosphere and into natural waterways.

Is this really the best we can do for our children?

War Games: The Syrian Military Theater Of Operations In Two Charts

 

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says that US forces are “ready to go” if the administration decides to strike against alleged Syrian chemical weapon use. As Bloomberg notes in the infographic below, US Navy guided missile destroyers in the Mediterranean Sea are within range of Syrian targets.. and the ships have a combined inventory of more than 200 cruise missiles. On the other side, the Syrian Air Defense system is very robust, and as Stratfor notes, with an estimated 54,000 personnel, Syria’s air defense network is twice the size of former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi’s air force. Here is the Syrian theater of Continue reading →
