Censorship, Blacklisting, Taboo Topics and Mindgames @ OpEdNews.oligarch

By Tracy Turner

"Really? How 'progressive' of you all. What do you think of the title of my next article"?

opednews.com rob kall meryl ann butler

I wrote the title for this article as my 72nd “OpEdNews.com” article. The day I wrote this article's title, I had already downloaded my 71 articles from “the Petty Tyrant of Opednews,” Rob Kall. Later that day, Rob “banned” me… putting me in the company of Rady Ananda and a slew of others who were and are too talented to work under the yoke of Rob Kall's/Meryl Anne Butler's censorship. But I was one of the lucky few to "leave" with my articles intact; Rob Kall is notorius for "erase-banning" authors with no notice, no backup of their articles.

I wish I had a trip to Europe for every time Rob and Meryl emailed me that “I have an agenda”. Okay… Every election time, Opednews bans and blacklists 20-40 or more writers, erases their work and refuses them copies of their own work, but I have the agenda… Censorship, Blacklisting, Taboo topics and mind games of Rob and Meryl.

Let’s explore agendas, since Rob and Meryl are so “fond” of that subject. I just did a Google search for “Palestinians Palestine freedom liberty equality lives life” and Google found about 444,000 results. Now doing the same search with the website “Opednews.com” (the literal search string “site:opednews.com Palestinians Palestine freedom liberty equality lives life”) yielded 16 results. There would have been at least 17 or 18 results, but my submissions were censored, and I was banned and blacklisted.

I learned a lot after I left Opednews.com, like it is not a charity; the tax people had no records of any kind for Rob Kall and Opednews.com. Rob Kall still advertises as 'giving' “tax deductible donations”, i.e. still is running a fraud charity. Email Rob Kall at rob@opednews.com and ask him for his Employer Identification Number from the IRS and for Opednews's Income Tax Returns from 2003 to the present (14 years of Rob Kall collecting "donations" not paying taxes as of this writing)... A bonafide charity has filed a 501-c-3 with the IRS; Rob Kall, Meryl Butler and Opednews.com have filed a "Snake Oil Certificate"...

But that is only money. There are thousands and thousands of pages pro-Israel, pro-Israeli, and pro-Jew on Opednews. There are 16 pages of “site:opednews.com Palestinians Palestine freedom liberty equality lives life” (according to Google on April 27, 2017).

Rob Kall has an agenda, a… let his own site do the talking, just look at all the names containing “berg” and “mund”, "stein" and "man", etc. on his headlines. It is a Jewish Supremacy site where Goyim are banned and erased, Jews are not banned and blacklisted. The site is a Jewish Supremacy site, which is the sites agenda. That and Kall scraping and posturing for every single almighty dollar he can find online.

For some reason, I wanted and still want Palestinians with full bellies, new clothes, a safe place to live, free of bulldozers and DIME munitions. Shame on me for submitting concern for the Palestinians in articles to a racist “editor” like Rob Kall.

The one really big regret I still have, is after Kall rejected my articles, I put them in the Mac trash. I did not fully realize how corrupt and hateful Opednews really is. Think of Rob and Meryl as cheerleaders for Obama and Clinton, as negative-jeer-leaders for Bush and Trump. Clinton and Obama are cherry-cyanide, Bush and Trump are lime-cyanide. Okay, the Democrats and Republicans are cherry and lime cyanide, respectively. Why cheer-lead for either, both are poison! Maybe the individual people have redeeming qualities, but their respective parties and both houses and the courts are awful poison.

Somebody recorded a video of Fake News Fake Charity Rob Kall stumping for money for his fraud charity, it was very humorous. But when all is said and done, Opednews.com is about self, about Jews and about money. There is no “cause”, except the extinction of the Palestinian race, genocide. Rob Kall and Meryl Ann Butler are hyperactive cheerleaders chanting for cherry cyanide for a country that is dying from too much Jewish media brainwashing and not enough true thought.

Just as Statist Israel kills Palestinians who do not fit their "Brave New World", United States Statists kill Americans on American soil for not "fitting in" with the New World Order. Rob Kall and Meryl Ann Butler are perfect Mustapha Monds, replete with their vile, pithy world of Fake News, Chertoff Deportations, Manufactured Terrorism and Taboo Topics. Rob and Meryl are perfect Statists, Traitors, Haxsters, Huxsters, Betrayers and Snake Oil Promotors.

Rob Kall and Opednews believe the following: that "they" are promoting a beneficient Judao-cherry-cyanide Nanny State; that more Nanny State Fascism will usher in a vast 'Utopian' (Dystopian) era. The fact that the New Age Dystopian era is enforced with batons, mace, flash-bangs and FBI-NSA-Gangstalking tells us where our "Freedom and Democracy" is headed, to "Grand" Statism.

NATO, Flesh Eating Bacteria of Freedom & Democracy

By Tracy Turner

[[iraq1]]


Politicians and "the news" vainly paint NATO as the wealth and power monger treasure addict guardian angel of brutal oppression hidden by censorship and corruption freedom and democracy . 28 NATO nations, a hoodlum gang called Necrotizing Fasciitis Capitalism aka Flesh Eating Bacteria Capitalism needs a new victim nation.

Vassalage Subordination Flesh Eating disease NATO exported 'freedom and democracy' banking into Afghanistan, rendering Afghanistan a Mini-Me of America, replete with Afghans Americanized Mini-Me Banking-Corruption-Complexes. NATO's official 28 countries and 5 unofficial members love subjugating the Karzai Government's politics , banking and "natural resources of others' . Under the Karzai Despotism, 20 Afghan Journalists have been murdered. The BushBama exportation of western style Authoritarianism is working, at the level of the Internet, TV, radio, newspapers, alternative news, etc. If only America had tougher truth in advertising laws that applied to NATO, Bush, Karzai and Obama could stand with one of each of their feet planted atop a pile of dead, "NATO liberated' Afghan journalists (Ed - link not working).

The BushBama troops also died to liberate Mini-Me Too, Iraq, which now basks in NATO supplied freedom.   The BushBama cartel and their court jesters are pressuring the Chinese to stop blacklisting on the Internet and censorship on TV News. The US and its NATO coalition are "pressuring' the Chinese by selling them Iraqi oil through Shell and BP. When China National Petroleum is done pumping oil in Iraq, it is almost certain Washington will just give them more hell about "Censorship'" It is all sham between cooperating locust governments.

Mini-Me Three Pakistan: imitation is the highest form of flattery, therefore Pakistan turn all protests bloody and Censors all forms of media like the US does.

Albania's government demands thralldom from the citizenry, blacklists the Albanian news media and runs a US-style Police State to enforce "American' subordination processes. Albania was "rescued' from Russia and their average persons are stuck with flesh-eating crony warfare and us.

If you live in the US, does any of this look like 'home'? The Belgian Government Censoring the Internet could make us homesick for US Censorship. Belgium police abusing a citizen echoes of NYPD at Zucotti Park. Belgium Police Brutality, Abuse, and Hatred of Asylum Seekers and Refugees in Belgium, are reminiscent of Islamophobic USA. NATO member Belgium is as corrupt as is NATO member USA; some countries are heavy on bank fraud, others on citizen spying.

Bulgaria has from 1989 to 2012 consistently had one of the worst human rights abuse records on the Eurasian continent. Why is Obama busting China's chops, there is plenty of censorship, brutality and corruption in all 33 NATO & friends

Canada's Bill 78 has been blasted and "United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navanethem Pillay, included Canada on a list of some of the world's worst human rights violators". Navanethem Pillay also stated, "Restricts their rights to freedom of association and of peaceful assembly."

Croatian Veterans are part of the great NATO coalition, and they too are controlled with violence, just like Occupiers in Zucotti Park. Disney was right; it's a small world, after all - Croatia's human rights troubles are painful to read.

Take these countries, one at a time, and do searches: (Skip Bing and Google, use these search tools) search one country and one phrase at a time; for austerity protests, human rights violations, government censorship, prison law abuse, surveillance state, etc., etc. of: Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain.

The countries above have varying degrees of censorship, bank scandals, surveillance and/or police state, Internet and Media Censorship, human rights violations -- most are actually much freer than the US, one of the most conformist, fear mongering places on Earth.

America is saber-rattling at China about Censorship, Free Speech and Human Rights. Meanwhile, the 28 NATO countries and 5 potential NATO countries are rife with censorship, human rights abuse, corrupt government, corrupt law, corrupt courts, police brutality and 100% lack of transparency in all forms of media.

France has one of the worst human rights records of any EU country.

Turkish-style "democracy' represses like American-style "democracy', Turkey "freedom' includes Internet Censorship imposed on its citizens. The Turk government is as fond of selectively removed journalism and burgeoning prison populations as is the US . Then there is the Turk version of Citizens United and the Turk version of freedom of the press. Unofficially, Bush made Freedom and Democracy NATO's mantra, but NATO needs to make it officially: "Dead or Alive, You Are Joining Our Gang'. Turkey is like the US, busy http://blog.hidemyass.com/2012/11/21/turkey-under-fire-over-net-censorship/ spying on citizens.

Poland's government is as adept at corruption and censorship as the American Government.

Israel is often referred to as America's unwritten 51st state, but it is better to let an Israeli explain Israel.

Germany is a police state, surveillance state and heavily censored.

[[empire1]]

United States calls itself a world leader, is the dominant force of the United Nations and NATO. Out of the 28 NATO members and 5-6 potential spare part countries, the US is the NATO in the blatant extent of election fraud as democracy , showing the others how it is done. The United States widespread corruption is emulated and repeated to varying degrees by all 33 NATO members and wannbes.

United Kingdom -- Britain has become a police and surveillance state. The UK's role in NATO could be called big, main mini-me.

Australia, Israel, Singapore, Japan & India all show interest in expanding human rights abuses and in being more like the United States; mini-me's intent on being more involved in NATO War Crimes...

All 28 NATO Countries and the 5 wannabes will undoubtedly deregulate all banks and corporations; actively encourage war profiteerism, environmental entropy and human societal entropy.

Researching this article, I found many links to many articles that are not included. Canada, France, Germany and Australia seem to act upon a unwritten 'Bill of Wrongs' for their political dissidents, intellectuals, environmentalists, activists, protesters, labor unionists and austerity protestors, etc. One of the articles I read mentioned YouTube and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. as a Censorship tool of government and multinationals. The example used was a 'free German news' channel that is free news in Germany but not viewable in the United States. The excuse for the censorship was 'violation of the DMCA', but the news clips were 'free to anyone'. The copyright holder was a German person or entity, the DMCA was being used to block free German news from Americans. No German entity or person was losing money from Americans viewing the free news, but the DMCA blocked it anyway. In essence, the DMCA was and is being used for: 1) Blatant Censorship, Big Brotherism and 2) To give the mindless US news a monopoly on the thought control business.

Cancerville USA - Government Corporate Carcinogenic Complex

By Tracy Turner

Cancerville USA - Government Corporate Carcinogenic Complex

 [[cancluster]]

The red dots on the map above are where the US Government admits there may be higher than "normal" amounts of cancer (cancer clusters). Look at each map, and then look at the Life Expectancy Breast Cancer Map. If you are a man, just think "colon cancer". The government version of birth control, just kill of extraneous bodies while turing a fascist's profit.

[[milbase]]

Major and minor military bases (see Stratocratic Venom Stings Self -- Military Pollution Articles I -- V).

[[fallout]]

The map above is the fallout zone from radioactive Cesium-137, Strontium-90 from thermonuclear bomb tests from 1945 to the present, 2013.

[[nukeplants]]

America's impending demise, Uranium-trash that kills forever and no place to put dispose of it (except the Balkans, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Gaza, Iran and Syria)

[[canclu2ter]]

The map above is by worldlifeexpectancy.com; map is color coded: gray are the areas with the very highest breast cancer, blue are a low amount of breast cancer and red are higher than average numbers of breast cancer. Women in the US Military are 20-40% more likely to get breast cancer than civilian women.

Expecting the highest rates of tumors and melanomas in the gray-shaded regions of the country is not far-fetched.

Look at all the maps again, do you see a pattern? Look at each map, and then look at the Life Expectancy Breast Cancer Map. The same government that gives you cancer makes sure you have to sell your house getting cancer chemotherapy, cancer costs that much to cure, if it can be cured"

So, how sustainable of a business is our multi-trillion dollar war(s) as a permanent way of "American" life?

[[str90]]

Strontium 90's 28.79-year half-life makes it sound "harmless"; if you have 50 lb of Strontium 90 in US farms, dairies and ranches, in 28.79 years you only have 25 lb of Strontium 90 giving people cancer. Why does the government make sure we go bankrupt getting "cured" or "treated" for cancer the government and Pentagon-Corruption Complex caused? The map above is also the distribution pattern for Cesium 137, which was widely past regarded as having a half-life of 30 years. But new research in the Chernobyl exclusion zone suggests radioactive Cesium 137 may have an Ecological Half-Life of 180-320 years. So the downwind USA and Greater Fukushima area may have thousands of people sucumbing to cancer for hundreds, perhaps even thousands of years. Cesium apparently keeps killing with its 180-320 year ecological half life.

[[milspend1]]

Change we can more of the same of.

[[fiscpent]]

Going over the edge of the Pentagon-Corruption-Complex.

[[milspend2]]

$2 of ever $3 spent on military in the world is spent by the US and NATO. This is not some tremendous source of pride to the rest of the world. Look at the military bases, the nuke plants and the cancer maps. * Cancer * deaths in the US will keep rising with every new round of war and its inherent pollution. Got Metastasis?

Red States or Blue States, we all live downwind and downstream from military industrial polluters. Power Plants run day and night on coal, Uranium, natural gas or fuel oil partly to keep the parts and supplies for the war going -- a form of corporate welfare that is also among the most carcinogenic of all industries.

Every nation on the planet has stinky parts they try to hide from the newspapers, TV, radio and the Internet. In America, killing Native Americans for Obama's "clean nuclear" Depleted Uranium War is one of America's most shameful secrets. Both "nuclear" depleted uranium munitions and nuclear "clean" energy is killing Native Americans. For some people, "clean nuclear" is a politicians synonym for weapons systems, the true meaning of "clean" is more cancers. The US Military-Pollution-Greed-Complex bribes and smoozes politicians into passing laws like the Screw Nevada Law.

One of the problems Americans do not seem to get is the Native American genocide was and is the killing of Americans. This is so not about the Red Staters killing Indians in Blue States, etc. There is an irony here lost on most people, which is that the Uranium by-products are in your milk, my carrots, your neighbor's broccoli and your favorite relatives pasta lunch. All that Strontium 90 and Cesium 137 is in the foods of both rich, expensive people and in the food bought with welfare. Americans need to understand that the Wind River Indian Reservation and Riverton, Wyoming Uranium toxins are now part of the food chain of all Americans.

The Uranium cancer on the Wind River Reservation is a warning to the soldiers who encounter Uranium on the battlefield and the Downwinders on the maps from this article. Uranium is a 60-year disease than covers most of the US, Northern Mexico and Southern Canada; Uranium Mining, Milling and Fabrication kills numerous, assorted Americans. Uranium is not "Clean Nuclear".

In all fairness to the military, they may only cause two of every three cancers in the US (only a guess); the other cancer cases are more likely caused by "free market capitalism" rather than by red meat. No matter what man (or future woman) is in the oval office, most eventually use the phrase "our way of life". It is supposed to conjure up images of a house with two cars in the driveway. Maintaining one's life with with cancer management costs about one car per year. Curing a virulent strain of cancer costs two cars and a house.

[[aircough]]

Discussions abound about our carbon footprint, global warming, spending 45-50k on a Prius to use less fuel; the media push the cars either by MPG or brute horsepower (gas guzzlers) or brute torque (diesel guzzlers). The news and the marketing agencies now "introduce" cars to you as if they are long lost cousins you should learn to love.

Introducing the www.scuderigroup.com/ Scuderi Engine, uses less fuel, reduces NOX emissions and has the same horsepower and torque as a diesel engine. Detroit, the German and Swedish car makes could use this motor in all cars and we would not need to invade Iran for oil. The military industrial complex profits from keeping these kinds of innovations on some tiny, obscure back burner. If this motor design were also used on all farm tractors, it would mean more food from less oil. But the merged corporate-state will find any excuse they can for everyone to consume more. Gluttony is an attribute in the corporate-state. The oil companies will not conserve as it means a step down from 17 super cars to 16 super cars per executive.

Cancerville, USA -- where pollution, corruption and cancer care costs skyrocket while life expectancy is on the decline. Remember all the TARP money spent on Detroit to "retool smartly"? GM, Ford and Dodge all "passed" on the Scuderi motor; it is not "oil company friendly".

Are you one of many Americans who think of Mexico as polluted and the Canada as clean?

[[vegan]]

The Vegan Anarchist put out the graphic above and the accompanying article is an eye opener on "our way of life" that Bush, Obama and several other corporate tools spoke of. Our way of death, which the media daily pretends is not a dark road to environmental perdition. The US civilian consumer and the US military consumption complex -- which of them pollutes more? The Titanic rammed an iceberg, as it sank would it have mattered if people in blue and red cabins argued about whether the Captain or First Officer rammed the iceberg? Ironically, the red cabin's occupants were chanting full steam ahead, the blue cabin occupants were asking for less steam. But when each person drowns or gets cancer, is the argument what is important? The argument is our "way of life" propaganda which is also life costing more and getting shorter, per person. This is what happens when fascist businesses run a country. The government is cancered into a police state inoperable tumor, the corporate state will profit from your last death rattle and funeral.

African American children are in America are 260% more likely to visit an Emergency Room with Asthma than white children; black children are 250% more likely to be admitted overnight for asthma and 500% more likely to die from asthma. The cause is what the media and industry refer to as "clean coal" .

The bank, Capital One, asks "What's in your wallet"? But few American's ask, "What's in your water"? Even now, in 2012, Fracking Drilling and Natural Gas entrepreneurs want to profit from injecting chemicals into the ground; some of these fracking chemicals do not biodegrade, not ever.

Looking at the maps and paragraphs above, it is easy to see why drugs are becoming one of the worst polluters of drinking water in the US. There is an ironic, cyclic event happening -- pollution gives us cancer, and our cancer drugs pass from us into the water table. Drugs are in the water supply of 41 million Americans.

Does cancer run in your family, do you have "defective" genes? Or has the cancer of corporate-government wedding spilled over into the cancer of humans, one of the fastest growing industries anywhere worldwide, selling sick, cancerous Americans their chemo-drugs? Many Americans were opposed to the Keystone XL Pipeline, even before they are aware of the recent alarming rise of Alberta, Canada "rare" cancers that are no longer rare downstream from the Tar Sands mining. America brags about how we were the leader in innovation and invention, but all the big auto and tractor manufacturers continue ignoring water injection, the Scuderi motor, making an 8-cycle gas or diesel car, etc. This pipeline is vastly due to human greed, not need -- as is the natural gas fracking. But Alberta Oil Sands is like the third and fourth pack of cigarettes per day to the human and environmental health of North America. One of the worst parts of the Keystone XL Pipeline Deal is the sands are liquified and sent to texas unprocessed, all the waste and much of the carcinogens stays in Texas. The state of Texas is certain to become as full of rare cancers as Alberta.

Most of the energy used in the US has hidden costs of pollution and health care. Some estimates of this cost in 2009 put the energy hidden cost number at $120 billion; but the US spends about $226.8 per year on oncology care; with many persons blaming the cancer on "bad genes". Americans view America as if it is the Magic Kingdom, where Strontium 90, Cesium 137, Lead, Mercury and radioactive Tritium are harmless; but some poor saps must sell their homes for oncolgy care due to bad genes.

Media Military Symbiosis - Antithesis of Both Truth and Matthew Brady

By Tracy Turner


[[freenomore]]  

During this year's Rose Parade, the media and the military staged a war infomercial Hallmark moment, a real tearjerker recruitment advertorial. The Pentagon and the Counterfeit-Stream-Media purposely contrive "spontaneous" events - Army Sgt. First Class Eric Pazz reunited with his wife and toddler child on national Rose Bowl TV. Read the liveleak article and ask yourself if you want Kodak moment warm fuzzies lying about "war" or the truth war?  http://www.yandex.com/yandsearch?text=Obama+cognitively+infiltrate+anti+government+groups&lr=102939

America often says the dead from our wars/incursions "were sacrificed for our freedom". Try finding any photographs, anywhere, of the 1,200,000 dead men and women who died in Iraq and continue to die in Afghanistan.

The military and media have worked very hard, diligently wiping out all vestiges of Vietnam Syndrome. Is that really a good thing? Is replacing John Lennon, Janis Joplin, Walter Cronkite with extraordinarily bland milquetoasts and every flavor of government-media conformist-celebrity really good for America? If there is "free speech" in America, does it include a media that would put Angela Davis on primetime to speak her mind about environment, war, the directions science is going and multinationals? Do talent shows make room for antiwar songs and poetry, highlight works by intellectuals, scientists and spiritual "others'? Or is free speech just a meaningless manipulative buzzword spewed by Pentagon and CIA loyalists who cannot fathom country loyalty?

Try finding a single picture of a single dead man or woman lying on the battlefield in Iraq or Afghanistan. That is freedom? Matthew Brady must be rolling around in his grave, groaning at "the openness and freedom" they died for. What pure spun hubris!

There was a time when musicians, news journalists, etc., "spoke their minds". Now, if you spend days or weeks using foreign search engines, you sometimes find a nugget of truth about Iraq and Afghanistan online, but the Internet is becoming ever more censored* (from Liveleak):

"Total U.S. Military Gulf War Deaths: 73,846
* Deaths amongst Deployed: 17,847
* Deaths amongst Non-Deployed: 55,999

The statistics for non-lethal injuries are likewise staggering:

Total "Undiagnosed Illness" (UDX) claims: 14,874
Total number of disability claims filed: 1,620,906
* Disability Claims amongst Deployed: 407,911
* Disability Claims amongst Non-Deployed: 1,212,995

Percentage of combat troops that filed Disability Claims 36%" - all numbers courtesy of liveleak.

So free speech in America circa Bush / Obama is comprised of distortion, propaganda of US numbers of war dead. How many times have you watched the Pentagon-Media Industrial Complex stage and nationally broadcast soldier surprises family - at football games, during Christmas shopping at Malls, on national holidays and now at the 2013 Pasadena Rose Parade. Mom "won" a contest to go to the Rose Parade? Pentagon funded, MSM funded "contest", or both? Nobody is begrudging the man and his family their time together, the military man coming home alive with nothing missing. But his family reunion on Rose Parade TV is a National Commercial for the Pentagon and their consumption-contractors, their corrupt war profiteers. But Mom won a contest to be in a Pentagon-Hallmark moment smells to high heaven of propaganda.   Regardless of whether Mom's contest was legit or not, the TV commercial for the Army is indisputable. Are these feel good broadcasts, designed to go web viral, just simply joy? Or are they thought control, recruitment manipulation, damage control for two wars that did not go as planned?

Those using and manipulating Army Sgt. First Class Eric Pazz as an unwitting dupe portray Pazz as a hero, rather than a camouflage-draped stooge or shill. Each military personnel/family video is supposed to be a Hallmark or Kodak moment for what and for whom? New recruits and those with newly raised taxes to buy 30,000 drones to spy on you and I? Lining the pockets of all those who profit from and have job security or obscene wealth from war? The MSM do not waste a full sports event, parade or holiday event TV moment without someone profiting hugely from said moment. These staged, contrived war Hallmark events are far more than Pentagon PR. If you believe these contrived Pentagon-MSM-complex advertisements are for the benefit of children, time to invest in Enron. The only benefit to children is 1-2 generations are being raised by the war-TV complex to fantasize as if they will be the future best Rosebowl commercial, not a flag draped coffin at Andover.

The soldier surprises family videos are not an embedded media; they are the media and the pentagon in bed together. These two strange, dishonest, manipulative bedfellows have brought us Hallmark moment after Hallmark moment. The media and the military are warm, fuzzy, child-centric teddy bears. The military media complex is our holiday feel good moment; the military media complex Hallmark war moment is our new best Superbowl Game commercial. Kids, wives and Dads reunited and Dad not in a body bag is the TV media spun lie, with the flag draped coffins at Andover still blacked out * voluntarily * by the Lamestream disinformation Media. So much for honoring the sacrifice of our war dead...

How is it the media cannot capture one videotape and air on primetime a single instance of anti war protestors being beaten and abused by police? How is it the media cannot air the anti war protests or interview the protestors on primetime, but never miss an opportunity to be pro-war-warm-fuzzy? Francis Sedgemore covers the same body count blatant bias of both the pentagon and the media in his article about cooking the Iraq body count books. Just ask yourself one simple question before you scoff too much: how did we fight two wars in two countries, both of which lasted longer than Vietnam, and have the as few of casualties as "officially" claimed?

The same kind of body count book cooking happened and still happens with Iraq's (and Afghanistan's) dead, the military cooks the books on how many civilians, women and children it kills. The same book cooking on the body count in Afghanistan is written about by rethinkafghanistan.com. Rethinkafghanistan's website banner reads: "To remain neutral in situations of injustice is to be complicit in that injustice" -- Desmond Tutu. The next time the military media complex show you and your family a Hallmark moment during a game, parade or holiday, ask what they want. Tax dollars out of your paycheck and replacement bodies for those bodies that no longer work.

One of the mantras we on the left hear from right-wingers is that those dead bought our free speech with their very lives. That will be believable when American Idol has antiwar artists doing antiwar song on primetime TV. What free speech? Maybe it is time for Obama to cognitively infiltrate anti government groups... Got Fascism? All those body counts and "sacrifices" are so we can have a brutal, oppressive police state and no truth or free speech in the media. In all of America, is there really not one single non-conformist that wants to sing anti war songs on American Idol?

Many liberal bloggers have written and commented on the "embedded journalists" who once covered the war, and now simply talk about most anything but war, from plush offices in Atlanta, Burbank and New York. Not only gone are Cronkite on War, or Cronkite on Vietnam; but also in the stead of such TV coverage we have Hallmark 30-second spots as mini-Pentagon ads.

Why are reoccurring commercials using troop-dupes to sell war Hallmark moments so plentiful (and not blacklisted), but articles like "Following in Hitler's Footsteps" blacklisted?

I am all for free speech in America, but the media is like a giant leaf blower drowning it out with loud, monotonous noise. But it is not just random noise, it is pro-fascist noise. Calling Police State Fascism "freedom" is rather like an astronaut calling Tang "an orange", even with massive brainwashing it is not the same thing.Google and Bing both had the article in their index, hyperlink pointing to the article page, but apparently some Constitutional scholar has had the article blacklisted in USA search engines...

Is it really Christmas, Hanukah, Ramadan, Kwanzaa, etc., and New Years in places like Afghanistan, Syria and Iran, all the places we wish to turn into a big, warm, fuzzy feel good moment? More than one-million, two-hundred thousand Americans died in recent/current 2-3 wars, and their images have been wiped from the Internet almost as effectively as if they were but data on a hard drive reformatted... The government is only appreciative when they can be used on TV as a recruitment ad in the Rose Parade; but once they die they must be erased as if they never actually lived, died bled out. What is the unofficial, truthful, non-propaganda casualty and death count of Fallujah?

If the military-media-complex lies about our own body count so blatantly, how many Middle-eastern people have America and Israel * really *killed? Do we as a nation want the media and the military misleading us with contrived SuperBowl Commercials for Johnny Marches Home and does a paid announcement for the Pentagon on national media? Who paid for the spot? It is brainwashing, as is the complete blackout/blacklisting of war dead video and photgraphy. When Matthew Brady photographed the war dead in the US Civil War, the nation had some sense of truth, closure, lack of closure, etc., that was not contrived mind-control.

 

, or do we want to know the truth about the wars we are fighting, to actually see ours and their dead on the battlefield without censorship that is * not * free speech...

Pharma, Too Big To Jail: Medical Pharmaceutical Complex Exposed

By Tracy Turner

[[pharma]]

 

438 people died in drug trials run by Bayer Healthcare, Bristol Mayer Squibb, Sun Pharmaceutical and Dr Reddy's Laboratories in 2011.


In the next ten years, 7,800,000 people in the United States will die from "iatrogenic deaths", deaths caused by "medical treatment" . The annual rate of medical deaths in 2009 surpassed car accidents -- America needs more stringent drug and medical treatment control as well as needing gun control. Those who overdose on prescribed drugs usually die with a whimper rather than with a loud, well-publicized bang. MD's routinely prescribe statin drugs which a few short years later cause poison to form in the blood stream. People either end up dead or are lucky enough to have "doctor" take them off of statin drugs that were mostly never proven to lower heart attack risk. These (unproven to prevent heart attack) statin drugs appear to be the greater risk.

 

Both the FDA and Lamestream media ignore the pharmaceutical SSRI links to over 4,400 cases of murder, suicide and aberrant violent behavior. Pharma blames the violence and mental aberrations on "poor mental health", an oxymoron since their drugs claim to "improve mental health". If the poor mental health of the people taking their drugs caused these tragedies, then in essence Pharma is admitting their pills are worse than placebo in efficacy.

 

Drugs including Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Luvox, Cymbalta, Celexa, Wellbutrin, Effexor, Strattera, Lexapro, Remeron, Ritalin, Chantix and et al are implicated in gun murders, gun mass murders, sword and knife murders, murder-suicides, suicides and hostage taking. The Lamestream news may acknowledge the crime, but does not investigate their drug-commercial sponsors. The connections between these drugs and ovarian cancer and/or birth defects go unchallenged by the US FDA. The studies that SSRI's are less effective than sugar pill go ignored: Antidepressants No More Effective Than Placebos , SSRI Antidepressants No Better Than Placebo Says JAMA , SSRI no better than placebo.. worse actually. - WeeksMD , Prozac doesn't work better than placebo | MetaFilter , The case against antidepressants - The Week Congress, the Lamestream Media and much of the public ignores studies contraindicating SSRI's and/or studies linking SSRI's to violence and suicide. The Pharma industry keeps finding new 'uses' for their pills. "-.

 

SSRI efficacy for some mental illnesses and some depressions may be less than sugar pill, but SSRI links to suicide as an antagonist are one of those dirty secrets the Pharma-FDA-Congress family tries to sweep under the rug. The drug companies actually blame the Congress FDA suicide warning on the packaging for the suicides .

 

SSRI's are widely prescribed as "cures' for bipolar disorder, depressed housewives, depressed divorced people, "cures' for returned troops with PTSD , etc.

 

It is not just SSRI's; doctors now give out Benzos like candy . In Canada, prescription opioid deaths are as high as drunken driving deaths.

 

Doctors who went through medical school reading textbooks written by Big Pharma are more and more predominantly staffing Health Care companies. Said doctors are quick to prescribe cholesterol drugs, antidepressants, etc. rather than asking a patient to walk in the park everyday for 45 minutes. The amount of people in America ridding their bodies of drugs into the sewer system is causing a new kind of pollution: drugs in rivers, lakes, creeks, streams, bayous, the water table and even the oceans . Most Americans now have drinking water at home, that if not * properly * filtered, puts distinct traces of cancer and disease causing drugs into ones drinking, cooking and bathing water. The more Pharma pushes doctors to prescribe, the more America drinks drug chemical residue from non-oxidized drugs in public drinking water. Even showering (drug perspiration, drug-hair) appears to wash antibiotics, antidepressants, etc. through the sewer system where the drugs eventually end up in the water table, in the ocean and in the fish on your dinner table.

 

The drugs that go through your toilet and shower into the sewer, along with that of other, ads up to tons of drug pollution -- but Pharma competes with you when it comes to polluting both water and fish. Health experts and doctors tell us to eat more fish ; but that very fish is having its health disrupted by both Pharma and illicit drugs. Both prescription Pharma and over the counter Pharma advertise everywhere they can -- with the many tons of chemicals they and their customers releasing into the environment causing bird die-offs, antibiotic resistant pathogens and fish with altered sex functions.

 

Most Americans think the FDA more closely supervises drugs and drug studies, etc. than they actually do. Learn to think of it another way: the Federal Government is staffed by big industries with conflict of interest people. When the news industry reports on a drug company being fined by the Federal Government for a criminal act , it is one wrist slapping the other wrist. Big Pharma is too big to go to jail, go to trial for murder, or even to put on trial in front of a jury. The role of Big Pharma in a rash of mass murders is more likely to continue than to see a Pharma Kingpin go to prison. Odd, a war on drugs fought with one hand by a government that hides drug dealing and death with its other hand.

 

The mainstream media likes to focus in on distractions, and hide the view of the deadly black ice below the waterline of the drug company iceberg. How many drug corporation people are in prison for murdering drug trial "patients'? Pharma is the second, untouchable Tier in the two-tiered justice system.

 

There are few in America who do not remember Vioxx -- Dr. Mercola "says' 60,000 people died from taking Vioxx pills, Ron Unz calculates as many as 500,000 Americans may have died from taking Vioxx over a 15 year period. Ron Unz brings up a more interesting point than merely 500,000 deaths; it is 500,000 deaths ignored by doctors, drug companies, the lamestream media, the general public and the government. The MSM ran thousands of Vioxx commercials on TV, in Newspapers and on the Internet; whatever Vioxx manufacturer Merck did, the media followed suit with Merck to continue getting advertising funds from Merck.

 

There is a must read article at rt.com, "Sick system: Record $11 billion fines do not deter Pharma giants from crime ". Some highlights of the article: Glaxo Smith Kline hid heart attacks being a side effect of the diabetes drug Avandia. GSK continued to push the drug after the heart attack connection was known for three years. GSK also promoted the anti-depressant Wellbutrin as the "happy, horny, skinny drug," (an off-label lie).

 

Johnson & Johnson paid tens of millions of veritable bribes to nursing home doctors to prescribe Risperdal for dementia (unapproved, off-label). This is the same less efficacy than sugar-pill drug the Veterans Administration tried to con PTSD veterans with.

 

[[mediagov]]

 

The media and the government pretend to keep us "informed' . If your arthritis medication causes half-a-million heart attacks, just get a celebrity to hawk your defective, lethal product. The news media airs both drug advertisements and drug recall ads from law firms suing drug makers. The lamestream media get paid twice from defective drugs, so much for keeping us informed.

 

The FDA have a new approval process for new drugs, built into the new system is a focus on approval of new drugs, less oversight into serious side effects in the public of newly approved drugs. But where do the drug companies get their data to submit to the FDA? Most people have not heard of the "international drug testing industry'.

 

Dr. Mercola put out an excellent article titled, "Shocking Secrets about Clinical Trials: 2,061 Trial-Related Deaths. Yet Only 22 Were Compensated ". Vanity Fair places the number of annual dead from bad Pharma drugs at over 200,000 annually . Drug companies are using the BRIC ( Brazil, Russia, India and China) countries and Africa as a place to murder via clinical drug trial and not go to jail. How is it the US FDA approves drugs "tested" on poverty-stricken Brazilians, Chinese from the ghettos, homeless Russians, African people from poverty-stricken areas and Indians who frequently end up in unmarked pauper graves? New drugs are approved by off shoring drug murder.

 

The preceding quote is from an article that also mentions 49 babies dying in drug trials in New Delhi . From 1990 to 2008, drug trials on the foreign poor went up tinyurl.com/a5sb8zj over 2000 percent. When drug companies do clinical trials in Chinese slums, Russia, Nairobi, Brazil, India, Africa and Poland on the homeless and the poor, they do not follow standards required by the FDA in US clinical trials. The drug companies "supervise' themselves during these trials, their reporting of serious side effects like heart attack or stroke are "on the honor system'.

 

Over the past 10 years, an average of 78,000 people per year in the US have died from "iatrogenic deaths" , deaths caused by "medical treatment". Pharma is not responsible for every single death medical death, iatrogenic deaths is a Latinized euphemism for medical quackery.

 

Go to the best restaurant in old town, look at the seafood menu -- are you having swordfish with Prozac residue or Chilean sea Bass with Azithromycin residue?

 

Not to worry, the US FDA, the Lamestream Media and Big Pharma will invent some new pills to "manage' the bowel cancer you get from the drug residues in your fish diet .

 

Every so often people here about antibiotics in beef, chicken, fish and pork, etc. The Pharma industry sells what are known as "agricultural quality" antibiotics? 20 lb, 60 lb bags of Agricultural Streptomycin to "spray apple trees for fire blight disease' are the bottom of the vat, not medical quality. If a pig or fish farmer uses the Streptomycin illegally, off-label in animal feed, it is still profit for Big Pharma. Illegal antibiotic animal husbandry is the most likely way we get new strains of Necro fasciata (antibiotic-resistant flesh-eating bacteria), new antibiotic resistant pathogens, etc. Expecting the Pharma-staffed FDA to crack down on Pharma is unrealistic. Expecting Pharma to be self-regulating or to have and morality is equally unrealistic .

 

We average people are not M.D.'s, but "regular M.D.'s" and Big Pharma are now killing far more people than many other causes. Ask your M.D. what the LD50 of all of yours and your family's prescriptions are. Get familiar with LD50's -- table salt has an LD50 of 4,000 mg/kg (4,000). The LD50 for aspirin is 200mg/kg. The smaller number means aspirin is very dangerous compared to salt. The smaller the LD50 number of drugs, the more dangerous the drug is. Become familiar with Black Box warnings , these are drugs that are very dangerous. One example of a drug with a Black Box Warning is Chantix (Varenicline) . Chantix is just one of a family of drugs hawked by Big Pharma on Prime Time TV, drugs known as SSRI's .


If you or someone you know is considering starting, stopping or modifying usage of Black Box Warning Drugs and/or SSRI and related drugs , you need to do so medically supervised by a qualified specialist.

 

Pharma manufacture poison, which they try to brainwash the masses into thinking of as medicine. Some examples of Pharma doing what their marketing departments would rather you ignore (avoid any and all of these, stay alive, stay well):

 

Johnson & Johnson -- Tylenol -- Death by liver failure .

 

Actilion Pharmaceuticals failed to tell the US FDA about 3,500 patient deaths that were related to its drugs Tracleer and Ventavis. The FDA sent them a warning letter. What would happen to you, if you killed 3,500 people? Would you expect "a warning letter?"

 

Pfizer -- Death by immunization . Also, 547 Nigerian families sue Pfizer due to 11 deaths and numerous people crippled for life via Pfizer's meningitis clinical trial. Oxfam recently accused Pfizer of moral bankruptcy due to their profiteering with life-saving drugs.

 

Roche -- whoops, 15,000 patient deaths and 80,000 adverse reactions , who ratted us out?

 

GSK Glaxo Smith Kline - 14 dead babies from illegal vaccine trials .

 

Eli Lilly, Novartis, Pfizer, Bayer, Merck, Johnson & Johnson and Sanofi-Aventis are included in this article   for not compensating families for clinical trial deaths .

 

AstraZeneca: 39 Gefitinib drug deaths in Japan , drug has caused debilitating lung injuries such as interstitial pneumonia in 125 patients.

 

Abbott was fined $1.6 billion for selling Depakote as an (off-label) anti-dementia drug, there is no evidence Depakote treats dementia. Abbott kept its diet pill Meridia on the market for 6-8 years after deaths started stacking up worldwide, only pulling the drug after an expert before Congress called Meridia a risk greater than its benefit .

Big Pharma, MSM, Feds, GOP, NRA and the Gun Industry Help Pull Trigger

By Tracy Turner

 

[[trifecta]]

It is fair that both corrupt Democrats and Republicans share equally in FDA's failure to monitor Drug Industry Clinical Trials and for the federal government's failure to investigate SSRI drugs (Prozac, Paxil, etc.), and their link to violence. Both federal-government politicians and the news media receive money from drug manufacturers, making both the last to want to investigate the link between psychiatric medications and mass murder. One would think both the government and news media would truly want to get to the bottom of what really happened.

 

Within minutes of shooting massacres such as the Gabby Giffords in Tucson, Batman Aurora or Sandy Hook, many hundreds or thousands of right-wing pro-gun sharks descend on liberal news blogs. Many make statements like "you liberals are using the deaths to spread your agenda", ignoring the fact that each right-winger is "using the deaths to spread their agenda". Gun-control blogs, articles and people are frequently referred to as "do-gooder busy-bodies" that "threaten my second amendment rights".

 

If we are going to discuss this so-precious second-amendment right, are we going to continue to do so right-wing hypocritical style and pretend death by Bushmaster at school is not cruel and unusual punishment? That loss of life at age 6 or at the age of the teachers is not the ultimate violation of eighth amendment rights?

 

Where were all these right-wing tea-bagger civil-rights advocates when the voting rights of Deep South blacks were violated last fall?

 

To have any debate whatsoever with those who favor gun violence as a right as they simultaneously step on free speech (first amendment) rights of Occupiers, eighth amendment rights of the shooting victims, and support stepping on the fifteenth amendment rights of voters of color is ludicrous. The right wing supports property-seizure laws that violate fourth amendment rights of property owners, creating a cottage industry of corrupt government that nets around billions annually (house seizures for drugs, ICE seizures, IRS seizures, DEA seizures, etc.).

 

To say the right sits on its ass as the civil rights of others are routinely violated is an understatement. First, Fourth, Eighth and Fifteenth amendment rights pretty well no longer exist in America -- and the right keeps whining that the Second Amendment is some holy grail to never be tampered with or amended. Dock strikers can be bludgeoned, pepper sprayed, rubber-bulleted, falsely charged and falsely arrested, falsely imprisoned and the right frolics and jokes about breaking another workers' union.

 

The NRA community is but tiny fraction of a much larger populace, yet they seek to subvert American democracy both overtly and covertly, with the corrupting influence of cash as an engine -- this they call "the core pillars of god and country".

  

This tragedy was a perfect trifecta of American unsocial value: The NRA had their way while government put its head in the sand. The drug companies (SSRI manufacturers) had their way while the government and news media put head in the sand and inflate wallets. Adam Lanza was taking the drug Luvox, with a known side effect of Luvox being murder. There is an all-important distinction here; Luvox did not pull the trigger, Adam did. But Adam was not firing pills at people out of a pill-dispenser. Yes, guns do kill people; to say otherwise is marketing propaganda.

 

There are four things that need be examined, or this is how life will continue to be: 1) Look at government corruption by NRA/Gun Industry, 2) Look at government corruption by the Drug/Psych Med/SSRI Industry and 3) Look at all forms of corruption in the lead up: corrupt news media, corrupt drug companies, corrupt government, corrupt NRA and a corrupt country.

 

As far as the extreme right's gun rights, you ask for second amendment rights while trampling upon others 1, 4, (5, 6, Patriot Act and NDAA), 7 (so-called Tort reform), 8 amendment rights. The Republicans (and many, many jack-ass Democrats) step all over Constitutional rights -- but after every shooting you all want to "preserve our precious Constitution".

 

Your party is a minority in America, but you try to run everything right-wing style. Most of the gun-control articles do not seem to have any notion in them of outlawing guns -- most are * gun-control * articles, with notions of outlawing hundred-shot clips of high-power rifle ammo. Will a 100-shot-clip make Gohmert of Arizona stop offering to arm a dead woman? In plain English, all of you assign some miracle alchemy to guns and ammo that is not there. Whether 100-shot rifle clips are legal or illegal, Gohmert of Arizona will always be a horse's ass.

 

The perfect trifecta, gun lobby-drug lobby, government and access journalism -- all will lose profits if Prozac did this. The official conclusion shall be mental illness did this -- even if there were a Big Pharma cocktail of 4-5 SSRI drugs inside killer Adam Lanza.

 

Why do the news anchors avoid asking why there has not been a federal government investigation into the correlation between SSRI drugs, teen shootings and stabbings? The news and politicians will not cross the drug companies in the same way politicians will not cross the NRA. Government, guns and gun laws, drugs and corruption of news media and government all played and continue to play a role in all of this.

 

Were the drugs in Adam Lanza's system tested on homeless Russian men to determine their "safety"?

 

The level of warm, fuzzy humanity in your average drug company does not leave room to care about Sandy Hook schools' 26 dead or what was between Adam Lanza's ears. Expect government, drug company (mental-health) and gun-industry propaganda.

 

Home schooling (isolation), video and computer violence games (safe assumption), trips to the gun range with mom and SSRI drugs probably all played a part. In an uncorrupted world, the government and news media would not be worried about their bottom line and would do studies on SSRIs and teen massacres with guns (that don't kill). Revisionist history and a national hero killed Adam Lanza. Few to none will grieve the shooter, but it is well worth the read, "Reagan-era cuts slashed mental-health care" to understand why Adam Lanza killed and committed suicide.

 

Will the news query the SSRI/teen-homicide connection? Maybe TV news will discuss business as usual with Big Pharma off-camera? Drug companies spend on politicians and on TV news, so government, pharma, GOP/NRA and MSM have a conflict of interest that points right back at them. Some of the societal effects of profit via corruption (aka free-market capitalism) is that the public does not know that anti-depressants are as effective as sugar pills (placebos) and withdrawals are linked to a vast assortment of suicides and murders.

When the foul, corrupt mainstream media covered James E. Holmes' arraignment, the most commonly used phrase was "faking it"; none of the media asked if it was Prozac withdrawal. The public is being duped.

 

How much mental-health care (in dollars) would the last 15 years of gun-lobby money purchase? The NRA/GOP/Teabaggers frequently spend vast sums to create chaos, then behave contritely like some sociopathic spoiled child. In case nobody noticed, teachers are not Israeli Mossad Lady Assassins with marksmanship skills - they are teachers.

 

Even as the Sandy Hook dead are having their funerals, less than 25% of America advocate for guns, ammo, NRA and gun industry - claiming their right to tell the larger majority that gun control cannot become reality. After stomping all over the first amendment rights of Veterans for Peace and Occupy, they whine that their second amendment rights are jeopardized. Gun control does not violate the second amendment - but gun deaths take away all the rights the dead were supposed to have enjoyed.

 

Advocate for the victims who cannot speak, advocate for the families too grief-stricken to take this issue on, or advocate for cold steel. But do not pretend the rights of cold steel trump the rights of families to not have their loved ones picked off with a 100-shot-clip.

 

All investigation (not the governments) is going to lead back to FDA-drugs-SSRI's failure, BATFE failure, Department of Health and Human Services failure, federal government cuts on mental health care and the NRA-gun GOP-Teabagger industry.

 

1) Guns don't kill people, people kill people -- actually guns and people kill roughly 11,000 Americans every year -- the shooters obviously have untreated mental-health issues, many most likely have SSRI-drug side effects that are known to cause violence. But in all estimated 11,000 cases, they killed with a gun.

2) We have the right to defend ourselves -- a small, light handgun will do that, a 100-shot-clip and a Bushmaster is not needed for "defense".

3) It is our right to own guns under the second amendment -- explain this to the families of the deceased. Do not do it by anonymous blog to those who do not care about your advocacy for iron. Go explain your need for a 100-shot clip to the town of Newtown in person, eye to eye. Figure out what to say to those having funerals and wakes --we are all sick of the various glib, dumb, arrogant, snide and rude, senseless remarks blogged anonymously by "gun heroes". Would you make those remarks in person in Newtown to the town? Then why make them here?

 

The second is old ink on old paper, written by a flawed man -- as opposed to "Thou Shalt not Kill" written in stone by a burning bush. You all claim to be devoted to "god and country", but most of you follow the agenda of the CIA -- making you CIA loyalists who put CIA and the second amendment before your "god". When most of you defend all the other stomped on parts of the Constitution and actually follow the routines in the two stone tablets, the rest of us (the non-NRA majority) might feel differently about trusting you with 50-caliber rifles. I doubt either side shall hold its breath. Tell the Aurora and Newtown families what purpose a 50-caliber rifle serves in the 50 states? Please don't reiterate a flawed many inked paper and pretend you are as concerned with the other 26 amendments Democrats and Republicans alike trample into the corporate mud.

 

Why do the second amendment rights of a minority in America trump the eightj amendment rights of eleven thousand gun-homicide victims? To die by gun violence rather than natural death is easily arguable as cruel and unusual punishment. Does the NRA and the right-wing have a Constitutional right to support what amounts to firing-squad death of about 11,000 people annually, with the number growing?

 

There is not one culprit, there are at least six entities that accompliced Adam Lanza: Big Pharma, MSM, Feds, GOP, NRA and the gun industry. The government, drug companies and health-care industry have worked to put profit before health care. Each time one of their slipped through the cracks shooters hits court, the media tries him with words like "he is faking". Actually, Big Pharma, MSM, Feds, GOP, NRA and the gun industry are faking. Their money trumps a few murdered Americans, every time. It is just the fog of war; the war to get richer and the UK is closer to the truth than the USA.

Sandyhook Shooter Adam Lanza - Was He eViolence Addicted?

By Tracy Turner

 

[[gun4]]

Certainly you have heard of Strickland vs. Sony, et al? If not, certainly the notion that violent electronic video games cause http://tinyurl.com/yanpcca violence has crossed the radar. Millions of people scoff at the notion and put X Boxes and Playstations under the Christmas tree. Thank God the Stricklands lost, and millions of copies of Grand Theft Auto in e-Arcade Boxes will be under the tree this year to teach children how to shoot two cops and a police dispatcher and steal a police cruiser to escape from jail.

 

The thing that the violent game apologist miss is the actual events of the murder, shooting the first cop with his own gun and then shooting the second cop and the dispatcher on the way to stealing the police cruiser are one of the violent digital subroutines built into Sony's Grand Theft Auto.

 

Many people, both pro-gun NRA's, liberal gun-control aficianados and even anti-NRA gun owners feel some basic truth is missing from the "official conclusions" of the "government experts".

 

When Devin Moore, then aged 18 at the time, killed officer Arnold Strickland with his own gun, then subsequently killed officer James Crump and dispatcher Ace Mealer, the physical, real-life moves he used were moves he had practiced in the digital e-game world repeatedly.

 

Prior to letting all worms out of the can, do some searches online for: droid shooter app, iPhone gun app, iPod Touch firearms game, etc., etc. Do some searches for X Box, PlayStation and Nintendo Wii shooting games. Research every movie out for Christmas for violent content; keep researching the movies the rest of the year.

 

When Devin Moore was arrested for three homicides and "Grand Theft Auto" of a police cruiser, witnesses varied in whether he said, "Everybody has got to die sometime" or "Life's a videogame. You've got to die sometimes." The second statement is what made it to the court transcript.

 

The violent game manufacturers port their games to run on just about any device made: phones, pads, laptops, etc. Here is a small sample of what people search for on Google monthly, formatted as search term followed by monthly number of searches:

 

grand auto theft 45,500,000

 

grand theft auto gta 45,500,000

 

grand theft auto san 20,400,000

 

grand theft auto san andreas 20,400,000

 

grand theft auto sanandreas 16,600,000

 

grand theft auto san andres 13,600,000

 

grand theft auto 4 - 9,140,000

 

grand theft auto iv 9,140,000

 

vice city gta 7,480,000

 

gta vice city 7,480,000

 

It is safe to say that hundreds of millions of monthly Google searches in America are for eViolence -- tutorials on gun massacres. Perhaps the manufacturers of Grand Theft Auto and Vice City GTA can get Clotairre Rapille to make an official statement, that those who frolic in the delightful fun of * video * violence are * less likely * to commit real violence.

 

Playing GTA and Vice City shooting games soothes and trains the Reptilian Brain to be a Priest, a Monk, a Minister or Rabbi by so satiating said brain with * pretend violence * that the same mind is less likely to commit real violence.

 

Our illustrious courts took Sony's side in this, as will probably http://tinyurl.com/bovrtub Clotairre Rapille. Those who commit real gun massacres are simply those who did not buy enough electronics, enough games rated triple V for triple violence, etc.

 

The violent games did not make the assassins violent, their violence made them reach out for the games. Americans must think en masse, must keep corporate profits in mind like the court did and does for Sony, et al. It is the same logic we must use with the guns themselves, if only more kindergartners were armed, trained shooters, elementary schools would be safer.


By denying both the Strickland lawsuit and the Devin Moore video made me kill, the courts left the game makers blameless no matter what games they crank out and what the users of those games end up doing. Violent pad, phone, computer and TV games are "nearly harmless", only about one in every million players kills family, self and only one in every 50 million do a full blown massacre in real life. Guess this makes guns and violent games much safer than Vioxx, if you ignore all the gamers flying drones, Apaches gunship, joining the Marines, etc.

The moves used by Moore to kill three law enforcement personnel and escape are right out of the Grand Theft Auto game. It seems Christmas 2012 GTA game sales trumps reality every time. Moore could have appealed his death sentence successfully if he could pin the blame on Sony.

 

No, Sony did not pull the real-life, real-gun-trigger. But yes, they did put a training video routine into the hands of an unhinged kid in an unhinged family.

 

But relax, enjoy the holidays, just think of how many new violent e-Games are under all of those American trees and how many paychecks were spent supporting Sony, et al this Christmas. Someone should look at how much TV and game violence impacted the most violent American shooters of the last 15 years.

 

How much does the NRA and Sony et al play into the US poverty draft and American and  

"free market capitalism" being completely reliant on military incursions?

 

  Reptilian brained kids with no critical thinking skills, either indoctrinated in public school military indoctrination camps or indoctrinated into right-wingism in private "Christian" schools were "god" kills http://tinyurl.com/97xap2k for oil. What American capitalism most needs is shooting talent for current and future war zones. American capitalism killed the 20 kids in Sandyhook.

 

Neil Young's rock ballad "Powder Finger" contains http://tinyurl.com/blatdsj the lyrics "shelter me from the powder and the finger". A five year old with Daddy's gun easily has the "force" necessary to kill Daddy, Mommy or a sibling, a mere trigger squeeze. Hollywood has thousands of movies out that show the powder and the finger as "smarter" and "stronger" than the next person. The NRA propaganda convinces people they are some bastions of strength for god and country via the powder and the finger. None of them think in terms of being played by marketers, advertisers, etc., into having a mass herd hysteria over a hunk of iron that will rust to bits about the time most die of old age.

 

 

In what world is an 80-lb autistic kid who kills 20 school kids "smarter, faster and more macho" than the next man or woman. Is the woman in the photo above more macho than any man she sees because she has a powder and a finger?

 

 

45.5 million searches per month for Sony's Grand Theft auto on Google, gee why are American kids commiting gun massacres? Countries like Sweden, per capita, do not have so many violence-soaked, military-police-state indoctrinated kids who live in a country that starts a war ever very few years. Germany and the UK do not have Hollywood cranking out violent movies and glorifying gore. Denmark does not have it's own satelite military base that kills Palestinians and lies about the necessity of genocide. West Germany does not start a financial incurion war of another nation whenever the financial tank gets dry. Sadly, this dead boy was autistic and lived in the most violent country on the planet, as did his poor victims, and their poor families.

 

Did shooter Adam Lanza spend his free time obsessing on violent apps, shooter ballsitcs apps, etc.? When these sad events occur, normally on would go through the computers event logs and see where he spent his time. His destruction of two hard drives tells us he had something to hide. Was it violent game addiction? Do a Google search (in images) for gun girl, assault rifle woman, gun erotica, etc. It would seem many people have some kind of gun erotica fetishes. 

 

Many of the so-called experts in many mass killings: "he was quiet, kept to himself, never caused any trouble before". That desrcibes about one-third of the world's population. Did Adam Lanza use gun erotica in lieu of dating girls (or boys)? Most teenage boys grow into a boyfriend, husband, philanderer, whatever. Nobody has all the answers, but this pet theory that he turned to gun erotica while his mother was overbearing and he was too shy to talk to girls at school fits, tentatively. A "normal" kid would have been adopted by a not-shy girl as her "project" to "socialize". His mother probably did not allow this to happen - no, the killings guilt is not hers. The point is that America has a gun-girl crowd of digital soft-core, I did not research this further. Sex and guns is alarming, it seems right up there with kids who light fires and torture animals. How many teenage boys prefer home with Mom to high school girls?

 

The court may hold Sony blameless in the Devin Moore shootings, but it seems like foersics people should not be so protective of the corporations and marketing people who may very well play into the mass murders. There is a legal hypocrisy, tobacco companies were successfully sued for deaths caused by their products, but gun manufacturers, advertisers, retailers and violent video game makers are off limits? If Clarence Darrow were alive, I believe he would put the failing both on the shooter and on American culture. The Bush's, Clinton's and Obama's have led us backwards into a very lawless time, with most of the "law" protecting crooked companies.

 

Mom, gun girls, guns, no high school girls and two broken hard drives. It somewhat makes sense as a theory

Sadly, Sandyhook Drives Gun Sales Up

By Tracy Turner

  [[gunfox1]]

Each gun massacre incident raises fears that the government might initiate gun control, which drives up gun sales via a kneejerk reaction. Gun purchasers react to massacres http://tinyurl.com/cr4og6a kneejerk style.


Once again, every gun nut in America has galvanized themselves into defending the profits of Glock, Smith and Wesson, Sig Sauer and Charter Arms, et al. Guns don't kill people, laws that prohibit guns kill people, the gun toters claim.They recite one-third of the Second Amendment, ignoring the other two-thirds.

 

Guns don't kill people; laws that restrict 100-shot assault rifle magazines and 15-shot semi-auto pistol magazines kill people. Just ask Ice T, he must have an IQ at least as high as Einstein, and Ice T says guns don't kill people. Ask Charlton Hesston; he will tell you on film that from my cold dead hands. If you need to sell a product like Tobacco, or Vioxx, you need a celebrity to tell people the product does not kill so they will buy more of a deadly product.

 

14 December 2012, sales of Glocks, Sig Sauer and Smith and Wesson jumped way up, as did sales of ammo. Every mass shooting in the US drives up the sales of the product that killed that particular mass of dead Americans. Dead Kindergarters are really good for gun shop owners sales.

 

This article and others like it will draw out every gun nut in America, who will tell you if only those kindergarters had been packing Glocks, they would still be alive -- each blogger online writing such drivel lies is spreading NRA's Wayne LaPierre's http://tinyurl.com/cuuuoob NRA poison lie. Neighborhoods with conceal carry laws have less crime -- actually, that is a blatant lie, they have more crime.

 

The other thing the gun bloggers do, is go on and on about the right to bear arms shall not be infringed, the framers and the second amendment.

 

The guns nuts keep chattering, bickering, blogging about the right to bear arms shall not be infringed... the founders this, the framers of the Constitution that. * Those guys * had flintlocks, single shot, muzzle loading flintlocks - one to two minutes of reload time between shots. When they wrote the second amendment, they wrote it during an era when swords were used when the one-two minutes gun reload time was too inconvenient in the heat of battle. They did not write the second amendment, as worded, for 100-shot assault rifles and 15-shot Glock semi-auto pistols.

 

Despite the antiquity of the guns in the 1770's, the founders did write: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State". This is what the NRA, the politicians the NRA controls, and the gun crazies always ignore and squirm at: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State".

 

Do you see anything well regulated about Columbine High School, the Gabby Giffords shooting rampage and the Aurora, Colorado Batman shooting spree? Do you see anything well regulated about Sandyhook Elementary School

 

Adopting the gun control laws of the ten states with the least amount of gun deaths per capita would give Americans what the US Constitution says we should have: a well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State. Once you fire the first single shot, deer are running in all directions away from you and into scrub or woods. So basically, a 100-shot clip on an assault rifle is for killing humans. So is a 15 shot clip on a Glock or Sig Sauer. The Brady Bill was supposed to address this issue; instead the NRA has blackmailed politicians into one gun massacre after another, with each gun massacre driving excessive sales of guns and ammunition. Between now and Christmas, record numbers of gun sales will occur because of Sandyhook. Google searches for Glocks and Sig Sauer went way up today.

 

Many of the gun clans are muttering that kindergarten teachers need to carry guns in the classroom. Anything to avoid discussing "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State". This http://tinyurl.com/cye4ugm blog has a comment that quotes the second amendment, but then keeps referring to "Right to Bear Arms is an unalienable right" and "the right to keep and bear arms is what keeps government subservient to its citizenry". The notion that the government behaves itself because some 20-something year old kid owns a Glock is one of the most ridiculous yarns spun by the gun industry and its consumers.


The comments infer some belief in the citizenry having massive power over government via guns. It is a massively childish notion, as well as one, which seems to repeatedly ignore the words "well regulated" and "the security of a free State".

 

Do you see anything well regulated and do you see a secure, free state when you think of Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora Batman, and Sandyhook?

 

Guns don't kill people. Attitudes of hatred and blatant disregard for the suffering families such as that blogged by this blogger http://tinyurl.com/c8dcxmx kill people. Just what the world needs after today, more sociopathy and hatred.

 

CNN has a timeline http://tinyurl.com/bsm7chs of the worst US mass gun shootings, do you recall any of these having a secure state and well regulated guns to go along with the shooters supposed inalienable birth right to massacre humans? The gun crazies, the NRA and the politicians cling to one of three parts of the second amendment; the bear arms part and totally tune out the secure state and well regulated part. Gun nuts croon about how precious this right is, but they are crooning only about one of the three parts of the second amendment. It is time to well regulate guns and have secure free state. Guns don't kill people, gun lobbiests, third-rate-actors and politicians do. Guns don't kill people, deep rooted soul sickness and hatred kills people. Ignoring "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State" kills people.


What about the eighth amendment rights of the dead to not suffer cruel and unusual punishment? When these gun massacres occur, it seems that the bloggosphere becomes innundated with right wing gun nuts howling about their rights - what of the rights of the dead and their greiving relatives? What of the rights of the mothers of the dead children? The gun nuts hate terms like http://tinyurl.com/ce9mfvq batshit crazy gun nuts.


[[yoinked]]


Joey Nova takes on the batshit crazy gun nuts http://tinyurl.com/ctpzjj9 here, by deconstructing their three most common arguments:

1) Guns don't kill people, people kill people


2) We have the right to defend ourselves


3) It's our right to own guns under the second amendment

US Government Thieves Render Unto Seizure

By Tracy Turner

  [[femacorp]]

There are two ways government steals from property from people while simultaneously stealing Constitutional rights away -- civil forfeiture and criminal forfeiture -- this article is about both. Americans being ripped-off by government keeps escalating, and very few people are aware how many innocent, law-abiding people are being financially raped. Obama gave lip-service to the American Dream at election time - the Obama DoJ is an American Nightmare. The machine gun boys in the picture above, where do you think their moral compass will be when they are ordered to seize your house, car, bank account, etc.?

 

For anyone who think SWAT and FEMA Corp only raid "bad people" you need to http://tinyurl.com/abn4cwy re-think what living in a police state truly means. For those who think we have free speech (online or otherwise), why did Bush and Obama seize whitehouse.com (not .gov), a satire of the Presidency?

 

Every summer the crime rate goes up across America. Law enforcement personnel log thousands of hours flying overhead, by day looking for marijuana in backyards, greenhouses and flyovers at night using infrared to look for houses growing pot with telltale sodium lamp infrared heat signatures. Preventing murders and stopping violent crime in summer does not pay one thin dime. But seizing houses to sell at auction -- even for just one marijuana plant -- ka-ching! Every summer, thousands and thousands of law enforcement hours go to seizing houses, the revenues of which at auction runs well into the billions. People not growing pot (especially greenhouse owners) have plainclothes cops show up posing as Edison employees, telephone company employees (each with two hidden guns) -- they trespass on your private property with lies because they have no warrant. More than 80% of those whose houses are seized are not charged with a crime.

The US judiciary has traditionally held that the presumption of innocence, referred to in Latin by the expression Ei incumbit probatio qui dicit, non qui negat (the burden of proof lies with who declares, not who denies), is the principle that one is considered innocent until proven guilty. The text of the Fourth Amendment reads: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized".

 

DEA, DHS, DoJ, ICE, State Police, Marshals, Obama's new FEMA Troops, Sheriffs and Police are all too happy to find your valuables guilty as charged and take everything; you basically have no recourse except to spend a lot on legal fees.

Public property is something for government to barter, a big bribe for Uranium mining rights, fracking above a freshwater public water source, oil drilling on bureau of land management land, etc. The definition of government must change as well; seize the pay, boys, and carpe dime.

 

Allison Kilkenny of trueslant.com http://tinyurl.com/ylakhu4 wrote a piece called Asset Seizures: An Industry of Stealing.   Ms. Kilkenny's article title is understated; this is a huge growth industry -- government officials (of both parties, get off the one party does this to the other party non-sense). What could this industry possibly do to one http://tinyurl.com/anw78mn family?

 

Fiscal Year 2011, the US Government seized $6,869.6 million from we whom they serve, an increase of 71.7 percent from $3,999.8 million in FY 2010. Our government taking care of us by stealing half-a-billion dollars per of our homes, cars, insurance settlements, etc. Meanwhile, nobody is seizing the Obama Whitehouse and the Pentagon, while the US military grows record numbers of tons of opium in Afghanistan with their partners, the Taliban. There is no war on drugs or terror; there is only corruption, a police state and high profits.

 

The assumption of guilt and the sentence carried out is seizure, confiscation, and grand theft by government. You are charged with proving the preponderance of your innocence; meanwhile, your cash, cars, houses and belongings are no longer yours.

 

The US Inspector General's Asset Forfeiture report reveals that the DoJ is now just robbing ordinary, innocent Americans of their homes, cars, cash, personal effects and bank accounts. The I.G.'s audit of the DEA reveals a disturbing shift away from due process of law into massive http://tinyurl.com/cev3l9b thuggery. The government has taken to stealing houses and bank accounts, with less than 20% of those affected charged with any crime.

 

The following is from Peter Gorman article: FORFEITURE: THE SEIZING OF AMERICA - Part 1: "On May 27, 1988, Port Orange, FL, police arrived at the home of 58-year-old Marjorie Crawford armed with a search warrant and discovered 17 marijuana plants growing in pots along the back fence of her property. Though the property had been hers for nearly 30 years, Crawford was estranged from her abusive second husband and alcoholic sons and was not living in the house at the time. When she was later told of the raid she assumed that her sons, who had a history of trouble with the law, were responsible. But to her surprise neither they nor anyone else was ever arrested in connection with the marijuana.
Nonetheless, almost a year later the Port Orange police, accompanied by two Federal Marshall's, returned to the Crawford home and seized the property on the grounds that it had been used to facilitate the felony cultivation of marijuana. After a two year legal battle, the deed to Marjorie Crawford's home was signed over to the government". -- Read the rest of his documentary here: http://tinyurl.com/bxdzddp

 

Marjorie Crawford in the paragraph above is a middle-aged, middle-class woman whose two thoughtless sons got her house confiscated. The Confiscation Storm Troopers are fighting a war on ordinary Americans, with cowardly goons using unjust laws to bully the innocent into homelessness, loss of a car that usually means job loss. The DEA confiscates Marjorie Crawford's house, but does not confiscate the Obama http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSxj-mqS3f8 Whitehouse or the Army's Hummers. This is an unjust war on the American people; the so-called War http://tinyurl.com/a6k8owp On Drugs is meaningless. Illegally taking the Crawford home is the antithesis of the American Dream.

 

Some articles on forfeiture seek to blame one or another political party for police and government greed and theft. These articles miss the most important points that this is an issue of crime, corrupt government, greed and theft. This must read http://tinyurl.com/asl7bc4 Asset Forfeiture: Unconstitutional Property Theft By Our Governments article contains this quote: "We believe the government's conduct in forfeiture cases leaves much to be desired. We are certainly not the first to be enormously troubled by the government's increasing and virtually unchecked use of the civil forfeiture statutes and the disregard for due process that is buried in those statutes" (Quoting Judge George Pratt in US v. All Assets of Statewide Auto Parts, Inc.).

Mr. Dart has done more research on this subject than most television shows, newspaper articles, etc. Be sure to see Mr. Dart's page on abuse of power by ordinary http://www.akdart.com/cops.html cops.

 

Andrew Dart's page on http://www.akdart.com/abu4.html Property Rights and Property Seizures is a must see. The common theme is suppressed rights and property seizure. Nationally, the term private property is being undermined. Andrew Dart's assertion we need severe term limits to help curtail entrenched corruption probably hits the nail on the head; but we have lifers rather than term limits.

 

Bush was doing this, for the last four years the Obama DEA has been raiding medical marijuana dispensaries.

 

What most American's do not know is that the DEA raids take huge amounts of cash, cash safes, computers, stereos, big screen TV's and literally (collectively, no pun intended) tons of marijuana. New reporters filing Freedom of Information Act requests to determine * where did all that pot, cash and valuables go * are rebuffed. Both the Bush and Obama DEA will not say where all the marijuana and cash is going.   "I'm going to have the most transparent administration in US history" -- Barack H. Obama.

 

For many people, that dream is owning a home. The amount of property stolen by the government from the American people without any trial or due process of law in 2011 represents 1,946 houses that cost $350,000 each or a total of $6,869.6 million. This is * not * the grand total for America, this is only for the DoJ in 2011.   If you add in all the civil seizures from corrupt city councils and bribable mayors, the aggregate American Nightmare government is stealing many, many billions of dollars from the American people while running a spiritual steamroller over the rights of the people.

Freedom of Speech - Google / CIA / Ford Foundation Style

By Tracy Turner

[[freep]]

Kim Dot Com and the RIAA had a dispute that should have been addressed in a court of civil law; instead, police with helicopters, riot gear and guns put Kim Dot Com in prison and seized his house and financial assets. Due process of law was abandoned in favor of police state tactics. The RIAA has put measures in place that block the download of pirated music and movies -- simultaneously; search engine giants like Google have blacklisted (censored) websites like prisonplanet.com and http://tinyurl.com/22p6o6m infowars.com. Although a fan of neither, the CIA and Google are taking us off the edge of a no-free-speech-online cliff.

Kim Schmitz is going to be extradited to the US and tried in the US for having a music download site in New Zealand. The RIAA will probably see to it that he does life, more years than somebody who murders one person. Life for illegal music downloads fits the police state US mentality; after all Kim Schmitz bit into Hollywood's profits.The US government is taking an RIAA civil matter and turning it into an international crime.

The CIA's Ford Foundation has decided to play McCarthyism with alternative news websites, via Google, Bing and Yahoo. Big brother does not want you reading anymore 9/11 conspiracy theories and has blacked out the alternative news sites that publish such content. As for Kim Dot Com, he made the mainstream media uncomfortable, a large, busy download site they could not control. Imagine if his site was up and had evidence of CIA breaking the laws within the US for download? The CIA Ford Foundation has no problem getting Google and their spin-off Youtube to remove anything the oligarchy objects to, but Kim Dot Com would be the last to agree to remove this video http://tinyurl.com/cctp4gr . No, Schmitz is no humanitarian, he is an illegal music profiteer; but he is also someone with an internationally famous website not under CIA control. His prison sentence shall reflect this.

Theory, anti-theory, idea, anti-idea -- imagine the ten most populist countries in the world their theories about what can and cannot be available in a Google search. Google dutifully feeds this back to the Ford Foundation (CIA) who then decides what theories and anti-theories are suitable for mass public brainwashing (not only here but also in said populous countries). Google, you can list huffingtonpost.com and washingtonpost.com, but you must blacklist infowars.com and prisonplanet.com.

When Congress conducted their faux anti-free-speech war with PIPA, ACTA, SOPA, et al, the public received the disinformation that the evil government was attacking Google, Bing and Yahoo -- the public did not see these faux info wars as smokescreens covering up an already censored Internet semi-accessed by a censored Google and censored Google DNS that is becoming increasingly more censored. Stirring up PIPA, ACTA, and SOPA, et al was a brilliant way to hide the Ford Foundation CIA Google censoring of five-eighths of the global Internet.

One of the main reasons to blacklist the alternative news is that the alternative news is the only news not following the Western Mainstream Media filthy habit of ignoring genocide. America's ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX allows 880,000 Rwandan Tutsis, 400,000 Darfurians, 300,000 Guatemalans, 60,000 Nicaraguans, 75,000 El Salvadorians and 20,000 Myanmar Muslims to die of genocide by ignoring them. Alternative news does not ignore them. ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX ignore the 2 million plus dead civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan, the alternative news writes and/or speaks about it.

The Western Mainstream media's ignoring the Muslim Holocaust, Muslim Genocide and Palestinian Holocaust, Palestinian Genocide is now going to be enforced via the US CIA and Google.  The CIA is a neocon-liberal, neocon-progressive and a neo-con conservative think tank, depending on which entity that takes Ford Foundation-CIA money are being blacked-out, speech sanctioned and McCarthyized. Google has proven itself to be a people pleaser of the worst kind, please do not stop using Google and shopping financial partner Amazon; we support anti-SOPA while working closely with the CIA to brainwash all you dumb zits. So Google * appears to support free speech * while blacklisting free speech online at the behest of the CIA. Infowars.com gets more traffic than any of the big mainstream media websites; contained no porn, hate speech, etc. Some would argue that Infowars is filled with race-baiting. But if we take away one group after another's free speech, soon nobody has any free speech.

How much more "humane" and "racially-politically-correct" of America's ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX to ignore the genocide of 880,000 Rwandan Tutsis, 400,000 Darfurians, 300,000 Guatemalans, 60,000 Nicaraguans, 75,000 El Salvadorians and 20,000 Myanmar Muslims, 1,700,000 Afghans and Iraqis and 3,000,000 Palestinians. ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX in the US can ignore Six million genocide deaths and America blacklists Infowars for "race-baiting".

Infowars criticized both the government and the lamestream media for ignoring six million genocides. The government took down Infowars, as well as having Youtube remove thousands of videos critical of the US government and CIA. The CIA using the Ford foundation to control Google and Youtube is illegal as hell; it is the CIA conducing field operations on American soil.

The "philanthropic" Ford Foundation "offers" grants to individuals and institutions around the world that work to meet its goals of strengthening democratic values, reducing poverty and injustice, promoting international cooperation, and advancing human achievement". Another way to put it, is the Ford Foundation funnels CIA-soft-money to left-wing think tanks, TV shows and news websites it "approves of" that follow its "guidelines". In plain English, Democracy Now can broadcast its denouncements of Israel that follow said guidelines, but cannot broadcast 3 million dead Palestinians since 1948, which do not follow the CIA guidelines and the genocide denials of the lamestream media. The MSM are the greater Not See's and the Indie media are the lesser Not See's. The lesser Not See's talk about the awfulness of the war, but not about the cancer count from the NATO WMD's. In doing so, the lesser Not See's are not an alternative from the MSM; they are a distraction from real issues -- an infiltrated pseudo-liberal organization.

If Hannity and Rachel Maddow are both brought to you by Big Oil and Big Frack, is either a true alternative to the other? If Uncle Sam and the CIA Ford Foundation bring you "Democracy" Now, what is it the show is * not * talking about?

Alternative Media Outlets Funded by the Ford (CIA) Foundation: Democracy Now!, Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) and their radio program Counterspin, Working Assets Radio, The Progressive, Mother Jones, South End Press (Z Magazine), Alternative Radio, Ms. Magazine and Political Research Associates.

As Feldman points out, each of these outlets has Systematically marginalized independent researchers who have Systematically studied 9-11 and the JFK and other political assassinations. Feldman currently blogs at "Where's the Change?" http://wherechangeobama.blogspot.com/

Google is, in fact, is a key participant in U. S. military and CIA intelligence operations involving torture; subversion of foreign governments; illegal wars of aggression; and military occupations of countries which have never attacked the U. S. and which have cost hundreds of thousands of lives in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, and elsewhere.

Intellipedia, a highly secured online system where 37,000 U. S. spies and related personnel share information and collaborate on their devious errands. The Militocracy have also purchased servers using Google-supplied search technology which processes information gathered by U. S. spies operating all over the planet.

U. S. military and intelligence systems in their quest, in their own words, for "full-spectrum dominance" of the planet, currently employ the same base technology. Connection with the CIA and its venture capital firms extends to sharing at least one key member of personnel at Google.

As Robert Steele, a former CIA case officer has put it: Google is "in bed with" the CIA on monitoring social media. This technology can automatically examine more than a million discussions and posts on blogs, online forums, Flickr, YouTube, Twitter, Amazon, and so forth each day. Each online item, assigning it a positive, negative or mixed or neutral status, based on parameters and terms set by the technology operators.

Whether the attacks on Google email originated from the Chinese government, or from elsewhere, one thing is clear: A company that supplies the CIA with key intelligence technology; supplies mapping software which can be used for barbarous wars of aggression and drone attacks which kill huge numbers of innocent civilians; and which in general is deeply intertwined with the CIA and the U. S. military machines, which spy on millions, the company cannot be motivated by real concern for the human rights and lives of the people in America, China or elsewhere.

Obama brings up Internet Censorship with China at the precise same time the Google-CIA is delisting hundreds, thousands of alternative news webpages out of Google and out of DNS servers. Google listed (with Wikileaks) 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.8.4 as "uncensored public DNS servers," but these are actually CIA-monitored and CIA-censored DNS servers. 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.8.4 are heavily censored. Google listing these, as "free speech" on Wikileaks is not much different than Google denying its heavy, heavy involvement with CIA and the Pentagon.

The CIA has been and is by nature a fundamentalist right-wing bastion of deceit. How many left-wing "news" shows on TV, web videos and alternative news websites has it funded through dummy organizations, grants, staffed with duplicitous employees, etc.? Just do a CIA-monitored and CIA-censored Google search to find out.

Now, to the heart of matters, the [redacted] [redacted] [redacted] [redacted] [redacted] [redacted] [redacted] [redacted] [redacted] [redacted] [redacted] [redacted] [redacted] [redacted] is what you really needed to know.

Global Warming May Threaten Ozone Layer Over the US

By Tracy Turner

  [[ozone]]

One of the initial global-warming predictions was larger sized, more violent storms (rain occurring in more deluges), etc. Dr. James Anderson has recently discovered a link between climate change and ozone destruction in the US.

The trouble with superstorms is updraft blown water 9 to 12 miles up into the stratosphere, part of the atmosphere that is ordinarily bone dry (but filled with chlorofluorocarbons from the 1970s-1980s). This storm-blown water, coupled with CFCs, is blowing holes in the ozone layer as much as 60-miles wide for weeks after each of these massive storms occurs.

Scientist Dr. James Anderson has been studying the atmosphere above supercell thunderstorms in the US. It would seem that the extra-large, extra-violent storms predicted as part of global warming are eating a hole in the US ozone layer that could raise skin cancers in the US by 30% in areas frequented by large, violent thunderstorms.

Harvard scientists hit us with some bad news: It looks as if climate change could actually cause the depletion of the ozone layer to resume on a wide scale, with grim implications for the United States. "If you were to ask me where this fits into the spectrum of things I worry about, right now it's at the top of the list," said professor James Anderson in a press release, discussing his team's paper, published online in Science. "What this research does is connect, for the first time, climate change with ozone depletion, and ozone loss is directly tied to increases in skin cancer incidence, because more ultraviolet radiation is penetrating the atmosphere."  

The particularly troubling aspect of this discovery is that it puts highly populated areas at risk, as compared to the polar regions previously observed. "There has been a major effort by the medical community to define the relationship between decreases in ozone and the subsequent increases in skin cancer," Anderson said. "The answer is quite clear--if you multiply the fractional decrease in ozone protection by about three, you get the increase in skin-cancer incidence."  

But as long as greenhouse-gas emissions rise, the trend will likely continue. "In my mind, this is not just a broad public-health issue," Anderson added. "This is about actually being able to step out into the sunlight. Powerful storms will take formerly 'harmless' pollution and convert it to stuff that breaks down ozone."  

For three decades, scientists have shouted themselves hoarse insisting the two planetary threats were separate and unrelated. "What Anderson did is piece together all of the complicated parts--how you can inject water in higher and higher amounts into the upper atmosphere and how that causes ozone destruction--and come up with this alarming possibility," says atmospheric scientist Ralph Cicerone, president of the National Academy of Sciences, who has done pioneering work on the ozone layer. "He's identified a really important mechanism."  

The region the storm-tossed water reaches, 9 to 12 miles up, contains about 20 percent of the ozone column in the summer over the US. "The system reacts much more quickly than we expected," says Anderson. "We don't know how long that lasts, but it may be many days or weeks. " If the intensity and frequency of powerful summertime thunderstorms increased as a result of climate change, he and his colleagues wrote, then "decreases in ozone and associated increases in UV dosage would also be irreversible"--at least until there are no more man-made chlorine or other ozone-eating chemicals in the atmosphere.

Jim Anderson showed that something much more common--the thunderstorms that characterize American summers as reliably as watermelon and hot dogs--could provide the ozone-destroying water. "We thought we'd solved the problem of ozone depletion," says Anderson, "but we haven't."  

James Anderson's preliminary findings show that the large superstorms over the US (thought to be the result of global warming from burning fossil fuels) are hurtling water vapor into the normally dry stratosphere, where temperatures, moisture, and chlorine is destroying ozone. Since this new finding represents loss of ozone over the populous United States, the potential to cause massive quantities of skin cancer in US citizens represents a potential or even probably new wrinkle in fossil-fuel use. The plans to burn massive amounts of coal, gas, and oil in the US could very well kill people who contract skin cancer in an ozone-depleted US.

Additional studies are already underway.  Anderson is the scientist who proved that CFCs blew the original 1970's hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica. Dr. James Anderson invented many of the measurement devices used to monitor CFCs in the stratosphere.  

A thinning of the ozone layer over the United States during summers could mean an increase in ultraviolet exposure for millions of people and a rise in the incidence of skin cancer, the researchers said.

The findings were based on sound science, Dr. Anderson and other experts said, but much more research is needed, including direct measurements in the stratosphere in areas where water vapor was present after storms.

"This problem now is of deep concern to me," Dr. Anderson said. "I never would have suspected this."

While there is conclusive evidence that strong warm-weather storms have sent water vapor as high as 12 miles -- through a process called convective injection -- and while climate scientists say one effect of global warming is an increase in the intensity and frequency of storms, it is not yet clear whether the number of such injection events will rise.

"Nobody understands why this convection can penetrate as deeply as it does," said Dr. Anderson, who has studied the atmosphere for four decades.

Mario J. Molina, a co-recipient of a Nobel Prize for research in the 1970s that uncovered the link between CFCs and damage to the ozone layer, said the study added "one more worry to add to the changes that society's making to the chemical composition of the atmosphere." Dr. Molina, who was not involved in the work, said the concern was "significant ozone depletion at latitudes where there is a lot of population, in contrast to over the poles."

United Nations -- Worse Than a Lipsticked Pig

By Tracy Turner

[[lmao]]

 

The four main goals of the United Nations can be summed up into one concise sentence: To maintain international peace and security via international co-operation. The United Nations Security Council is comprised of the five nations best poised to engage in thermonuclear war: France, US, UK, Russia and China. The hegemonius war prone US pays 25% of the UN's financial bills, creating a built-in conflict of interest. If the UN gets too condemning of US hegemony and excuses for war, the UN could lose its single largest financier. Although an extremely unlikely scenario, if the US took the advice mantra chanted by Conservatives, US out of the UN" A UN devoid of the US could challenge each and every feeble excuse the US concocts for war. The US out of the UN could benefit the cause of world peace and stability. http://tinyurl.com/c47lzla.

 

The nation of the UK has 61 million inhabitants, China has 1.3 billion inhabitants, but both have equal veto power in the UN. The UK has more power in the UN than the Middle East and South America combined, via its veto vote.

 

The five nuclear powers that comprise the UN Security Council are always at odds with one another, the US vetoes any meaningful action to stop Israel from killing Palestinians, the Russians and Chinese veto anything meaningful to save lives in Darfur and Myanmar. Five nations always at odds with each other and competing with each other for natural resources are always at odds with each other while thousands, even millions die of genocide. When George W. Bush prepared to invade Iraq the United Nations lacked the will to stop Bush's killing of 1.5 million Iraqis, the vast majority of whom were non-military. A united Nation dominated by the US is nearly worthless "to maintain international peace and security via international co-operation".

 

Any issues that come before the UN involving Korea will be vetoed by China, issues involving many Middle East and Eastern Europe countries would be vetoed by Russia. In the same way, voting members of the UN do not want to vote for anything that is not in their own interests. Many of the members are only there to put a humanitarian face on their selfish endeavors and a civilized face on their war mongering. Much of what is actually accomplished at the UN is political debate with no actual power to enact the debated policies.

 

The UN has glaring failures in the Ivory Coast (including slavery in the Cacao fields of West Africa), the Ivory Coast, Kenya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The UN lacked (with Bush) and lacks (with Obama) the gumption to challenge a sitting President about kill lists, women and children collateral damage or labeling depleted uranium a WMD. This article also lists other failures and UN organization http://tinyurl.com/ctr5ev7 that often defeat their stated purposes.

 

The UN takes in its annual budget, pretends most of the genocide it does nothing to stop did not happen. But it has the World Food Project and World Health Organization -- two places where the UN can burn obscene amounts of money on even bigger failures http://tinyurl.com/c5hqc5g. The World Food Project in many cases has used its funds to create worse agricultural crises than those to third world countries started with. In some cases WFP money is buying arms for radical militias and WHO food is feeding heavily armed armies.

 

The United Nations is portrayed as "peacekeeper" and many people forget that IMF and World Bank are the Pit Bull under the UN lipstick http://tinyurl.com/bsz6rhz. The UN's World Bank has a new pending President http://tinyurl.com/csqafnb but is so rife with dysfunction and corruption he is not likely to fix anything meaningful.

 

The UN allows 880,000 Rwandan Tutsis, 400,000 Darfurians, 300,000 Guatemalans, 60,000 Nicaraguans, 75,000 El Salvadorians and 20,000 Myanmar Muslims to die of genocide. The totals ad up to 1.7 million dead, none of whom were defended verbally or in any other way by an organization with the World Bank as one of its financial assets. Add in the Bush Obama dead in Iraq and Afghanistan and the totals are 3 million plus human beings extinguished with not even a peep out of the United Nations. No press release stating their opposition to 3 million murders, but the UN is very busy in starving Africa. UN Complicit In Murder In Ethiopia And Ogaden http://tinyurl.com/bvnhw38.

 

The UN has failed the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza for 67 years, the age of the UN http://tinyurl.com/bq64vjs. 2 million Palestinians died as well as 1 million have died from neighboring Arab countries since the Arab- Israeli War in 1948. This 3 million and the previously mentioned 3 million makes for over 6 million human fatalities that the UN does not even acknowledge as having occurred. In essence, 6 million deaths have occurred because the world's premier peacekeeping organization is afraid to embarrass a US President and have their funds cut off. Calling the United Nations "peacekeepers" is tantamount to putting lipstick on a pig and calling it a beautiful woman. A pig with lipstick is still a pig; a UN that eats up billions of dollars and lets 6 million people die of genocide is also a pig, but of another sort.

US CIA Drug Dealing, Torture, Milgram Experimentation on Humans

By Tracy Turner


[[sam]]

Each US President has several phases they always go though on "rights": Jimmy Carter and China Human rights. Barrack Obama wanting China to stop censoring the Internet the way the US is and has been censoring the Internet. Will Obama speak up for children's rights in the US? Perhaps Bush and Obama themselves are Milgram experiments on the populace?

 

Is our totalitarian government trying to see exactly how much abuse a populace takes before anybody questions authority? How much more voltage does Obama have to apply before someone questions his authority to electrocute the populace? How about when it is nothing but ads, a place to pay taxes and has no political truth beyond See Dick Run, see Spot run stories, will you then ask who had the authority to censor free speech online?

 

Uncle Sam, LSD and human experimentation has not only been documented, but also admitted to by Bill Clinton. Operations MK ULTRA and MK DELTA do indeed belong blamed on someone, but to place Uncle Sam's guilt on the Jews could not be more wrong. Admirals, Generals and CIA goons, clerks and wannabe spies created, ran and in some form no doubt still run MK ULTRA.

 

The CIA and other US Government agencies use drugs to torture Guantanamo detainees. Congress engaged in a witch-hunt that found no witches. Congress found no drugs, no fault in how the US Navy runs Guantanamo, but the Interrogation of suspected Al Qaeda members would fall to the US CIA, who is not even mentioned most of the time in regards to Guantanamo.

 

This short article CIA: BASTION OF INTEGRITY uses these 10 sources: Acid Dreams, Martin Lee and Bruce Schlain, Grove Press. CIA Home Page on the Internet for CIA Vision, Mission and Values. Helter Skelter, Vincent Bugliosi, New York. Inside the Company, Philip Agee, Bantam Books. Journey Into Madness, Gordon Thomas, Bantam Books. Plain Speaking: An Oral Biography of Harry S. Truman, Merle Miller, New York. Spying for America, Nathan Miller, Dell Publishing. The 60 Greatest Conspiracies of All Time, Jonathan Vankin and John Whalen, Citadel Press. The Big Book of Conspiracies, Doug Moench, Paradox Press. The Mind Manipulators, Alan W. Scheflin & Edward M. Opton Jr. Paddington Press.

 

One of the best researchers of this subject was a woman named Mae Brussell who died in October 1988 from cancer. One of this writers favorite radio broadcasts of Mae Brussell is Henry Kissinger, Narcotics Emperor.

 

The question of Guantanamo drugging was asked and answered by the US Congress according to the Huffington Post, but Huff Post says the investigation brought up additional questions the government has no interest in answering. Truthout.org calls the drugging of Gitmo political prisoners "pharmacological waterboarding". David Hicks claims of drug torture in Guantanamo are backed up by witnesses, prominent attornies, independent investigations and previously secret reports.

 

America is a war on drugs country, nobody is going to believe in googling lsd-quaeda, because nobody is going to pay the slightest attention to an apology from Bill Clinton for the CIA doing mind control experiments on children. If American children are given drugs and experimented upon, imagine the plight of inmates at Abu Gharaib being experimented on with LSD to glean confessions or torture-duress false-confessions?

 

Jose Padilla claims he was given LSD and possibly PCP, the Department of Defense says it was a flu shot. It is refreshing that DoD, an organization that kills millions of people, is so concerned with Padilla avoiding influenza, but not with him having permanent brain damage and/or mental illness.

 

Destroying the brains of inmates at Abu Gharaib and Guantanamo is nothing new for USA; read A Brief History of Human Experimentation, Human Experimentation Programs Conducted by the Department of Defense (MK Delta) and Human medical experimentation in the United States: The shocking true history of modern medicine and psychiatry (1833-1965) . Also read Secret US Human Biological Experimentation and watch this video of former President Clinton admitting to drug and radiation experiments on US citizens. Many people deny even the remote possibility of chemtrails coming out of military planes, but these same deniers have never read about the human poison experiments our government now admits to.

 

One can read the full-declassified text of Projects MK Ultra and MK Delta. One of the goals of these experiments was to use drugs and mind programming to turn ordinary people into political assassins.

 

Digressing back, if even children in America are not exempt from CIA drug mind-control experiments, who is exempt?

 

The Human Radiation Experiments, how scientists secretly used US citizens as guinea pigs during the Cold War By Alan R Cantwell Jr., M.D. covers some of the gut-wrenching poisoning behavior concocted by the Department of the Army, post WWII .

 

 

The US has a long, long history of experimenting on humans; including obliquely. Plutonium trigger fabricators who work in gravel gerties assemble Plutonium triggers for thermonuclear bombs. Workers wear badges, so they do not exceed an "allowable" amount of radiation exposure. When a worker gets cancer, leukemia or a tumor it is logged into a database carefully.

 

Two of the Vietnam/Iran Contra-era researchers of US-tax-payer government sponsored poisonings were Johnny O'Donnell and Mae Brussell, both shunned by the MSM of yesteryear. O'Donnell wrote one of the First Vietnam-Agent Orange and Agent Blue stories ever to appear in print, published in Playboy. Mae Brussell archives are here.

 

Circa 2012, one can find items not worth reading on infowars (this writer questions the "science" of everything on infowars) to this scholarly study of Tuskegee Syphilis human experiments on blacks in the South. The US has a long, long history of abusing its own with cruel, unusual human experiments that violate the eight amendment. Dr. Mercola's website has an article on US human experiment crimes.

 

What kind of people love a government that does this to its own people, an Atomic Bomb Test on human subjects? From Eisenhower to Obama, the Pentagon and CIA have and continue to human experiment, to torture.

 

 

The government criteria for who to experiment on is equal opportunity long term, one time it is pregnant women, children, then blacks, then Army recruits, then white postal workers, imprisoned Arabs, etc., and other federal workers (Operation Midnight Climax). Those experimented on might get LSD, radioactive iron for their babies, syphilis, etc.

 

Was the guy who shot John Lennon a CIA MK ULTRA stooge?

 

Here is Mae Brussell's spin on what is now known as "the War on Drugs". Mae's viewpoint is admittedly "out there". But if you attempt to look at the world as she did, the War on the Taliban would become the War With the Taliban, the War on Drugs would become the War With Drugs. In Afghanistan NATO troops guard the Talibans' opium poppies in three shifts.

 

MK Ultra 2012 -- Cops Caught Mass Drugging Teens And Dropping Them At Occupy Minnesota could not happen, not here in America, where sworn law enforcement put the law before http://tinyurl.com/cy6ld3eOccupier politics. The CIA stopped dealing drugs during the Reagan Iran Contra Scandal days. How much poor neighborhood drug money is going from America to the Taliban, circa 2008-2012? So, how much of your retirement is vested in US / Taliban Opium, propping up Lehman Brothers and Citibank, et al?

 

CIA/DRUGS/BANKS -- From the days of Mae until now, nothing much has changed, except people do not look at Geitner and see Taliban Drug money and CIA. Listen to Mae, substitute the names of the Bush Obama Secretaries/Cabinets and America will make more sense to you than it ever will from watching NBC News.

 

Mae knew who was corrupt and how, including CIA-Reuters. Wanna know about the CIA Mormon Mafia Romney would rather you had not heard of? The immediate preceding link predicts bankers taking retirement and social security (bitter pills, austerity) from us as a conspiracy, predicted in 1977!

 

Sit back, take your government mandated drugs, feed the mandated amount of daily taxes into your terminal and Big Brother will read you a story about Dick, Jane and Spot. Smoke a bowl of Geithner's best smoking opium or squirt your veins full of Lehman Brother's Afghan Black heroin, which you blew the last of your paycheck on. You, the hopelessly drug addicted, a lifeboat to the big banks and the Taliban in a down economy. The Taliban are a lifeline to the military industrial complex, with nobody to fight work and weapons orders stop.

 

Since the very beginning of the Manhattan Project people were injected with plutonium or uranium. Total body irradiation experiments at the University of Cincinnati recorded eight deaths. Radiation doses were given to fetuses and hundreds of women at the Vanderbilt University. Prisoners' testicles were irradiated in Washington state and Oregon. Orphans at a school in Boston were fed plutonium-laced milk. Johns Hopkins University invented the radium nasal irradiation procedure given to schoolchildren nationwide and to military personnel. At a state school in Massachusetts, institutionalized mentally retarded children were lured into experiments by special treats like extra milk, occasional outings, and membership in a "Science Club."

How much violence will "law enforcement" dish out to First Amendment Protestors before questioning authorities? How much human hunger and freezing cold will enforcers of austerity dish out before anybody questions the authority of Washington. Obama is ten-twenty times as Milgram as Bush, who was thousands of times more Milgram than Jack Kennedy. Nobody wants to question the authority of the Milgram Experiment government.

 

MK ULTRA hearings had victim-survivor testimony in front of Congress, who was so moved they let Bush and Obama torture some more. There is wrong, and then there is Army wrong, Swine flu and LSD experiments. The US Gov will take care of you with the broken social safety net, Operation Big City.

 

How much government abuse will a populace take before questioning authority? The main role of the CIA is to push drugs, cause death and to torture. Obama sidesteps the public outcry of torture by killing bystanders of his drone targeted persons. Obama has pledged no torturers shall be prosecuted, even those who tortured people to death. Congress main role is to whitewash torture, whitewash collateral drone deaths, whitewash drug pushing and drug torture. How much human death and human abuse, including drug and chemical experiments on American dupes will Congress tolerate before questioning Bush or Obama's "authority"? Maybe when they start drugging Senators and Congressmen, or your children, someone will fight back.

Obama and Feinstein Executive Order ~ Internet Censorship / Big Brother 2012 ~ COICA, SOPA, ACTA, PIPA, CISPA & TPP

[[liberty]]

So, do you want a TPP censored Internet? Brainwashing? Lies? Advertising? A censored Google search? The smart phone crowd, who consider themselves wired, are behind the learning curve of Raging Grannies Action League on Feinstein and Leahy's Protect IP Act (PIPA). Feinstein and Obama wish to do Internet Censorship as an Obama Executive Order and will not rest until America is a Totalitarian Regime http://personalliberty.com/2012/08/31/internet-censorship-via-executive-order/.What do any and all the acronyms in the title have in common? They all threaten lawful speech online.

Millions of people spend weekends drooling over computers, pads and smart phones to "be informed", out of 313 million people few Google   "Obama Feinstein censorship". Google recently released a "transparency" report, US Government Spying upon and Censorship of Google users (you, the public) is up 103% over last year. This means the US Government has been spying on you and censoring the Internet (lawful free speech) for at least two years. So what are all the sham battles over censoring the web about, it is already being censored by Uncle Sam and Google http://tinyurl.com/b3vl9q8. The other US search engines are mute about the spying and censoring. What is the government censoring, web pages about government corruption, waste, abuse of power, etc.?

Who owns the Internet? Does Obama or Feinstein? The Indian government or US? Who has oversight duties to see that it is not censored, looking over Google, Bing, Yahoo, et al's shoulder as they do take downs and fork over user data? Feinstein, Obama, the US military? Who is watching the government and the search portals, a few dozen people who hold most of the world's free speech in their keyboards?

Where is one homepage about censored TV? Find me one family home page about censored television. Find me one home page written by a person with their face on the page that criticizes drug companies, the military, Monsanto Agent Orange Cornand Soy? Sure, some blogs exist, heavily monitored by government and the articles within them extensively blacklisted by government and corporation. Just enough is left online to make a cursory appearance of free speech. In other words, censorship is televisionizing the web, creating a Monsanto/Amazon world where you can order your agent-orange soy-latte but where you will no longer see how many Brazilans, homeless Russians, poor in India that Big Pharma has killed. More people google birther blogs than Pharma Russian homeless dead guinea pigs.

Find one website criticizing anything (homeowners with foreclosed houses, pictures of the homeowner, a disgruntled veteran with his face and name on * his own homepage *, etc.). All you find mostly is MSM pages and Ministry of Truth-approved half-truths. The truth is not out there, but the Ministry of Truth is up and running and becoming more censored by the hour and day.

The American public is no longer online in the sense of having web pages of those injured by drug companies, irradiated in war by military Uranium, etc., those screwed by banks or Wall Street. Try searching for the most controversial subjects corrupt government and criminal multinationals would not want you to see:

US

US -- http://ask.com/  

US -- http://google.com/

US -- http://blekko.com/  

US -- http://bing.com/  

US --   http://yahoo.com/  

US -- http://aolsearch.com  

US - http://www.hotbot.com  

US - http://www.gigablast.com/

 US - http://www.gibiru.com/

Foreign

Iranian (Farsi) - http://www.parseek.ir

Czechoslovakian Czech -- http://seznam.cz/

Russian Cyrillic -- http://www.yandex.by

Sweden http://search.lycos.se

Use Google adword tool and find censored subjects to search on the assorted search engines above, find new search engines with those above.   The average web user does a search for X on one search engine, with X being one phrase.

They forget that online, corporate or government entity X is also known as Y and Z. That phrase1, prase2 that describe a government department or multinationaland/or their malfesance can also be described with phrase 3 and phrase 4, which give different search engine results. That the differing phrases give different results in each of the search engines above. Overall, the results of doing many searches on many criminal government / corporate behaviors are returning potentially light, moderate or even heavy censorship results. Free speech online is going the way of boiling frogs. Only   the most naive and ignorant think uncensored free speech still exists, online or on TV.   Stay vigilant, you will see both quantity and quality of news going the way TV has become.

Mix and match your own situations, key words, phrases, use Google keyword tool, do dozens of searches in all the search engines above using mix and match terms.

Who are you going to believe, Google: http://tinyurl.com/b3vl9q8. Google and Amazon are not advocates for your free speech, while you ignore it evaporating from the web as it evaporated from TV long ago. The best thing you can do is boycott Google and Amazon, et al, use alternative search engines, protest to Obama and Feinstein that the Air Force Cyber Wing has already hidden far too much free speech from the public view. Having the free speech, lawful online content of 3/4 of the planet owned by two companies and one corrupt, Citizens United Government is spooky.

 Boycott Bill Gate's latest attempt (bing.com) at a monopoly (along with AGRA), quit yahoo, Google and ask.com. Use the foreign and third-party search engines above to dig what little truth there is out of the Internet (which is like pulling your own tooth out to find). The most used search engines in America are the blind eyes of liberty, the muffled ears, the speechless voice of the American people. Once there were hundreds of search spiders, and the government censored the web some. Boycott all US Search engines and demand free speech online, no Big Brother shutting off the parts of the Internet Washington sees as unfit for adults. Obama and Feinstein as our net-nannies?

The many PIPA and SOPA melodramas are the Corporatocracy-owned government bluffing during poker to up the ante. They have already won; censored speech online is already reality. The battle between a few activists and the government was a sham battle, designed to make the populace believe the Internet is still free speech. The censored populace having a charade war with their corporate-owned (voted-in-totalitarian-regime) over free speech that was wiped off of the web years ago sells a lot of pads and smart phones. Step over to your nearest Frye's or Best Buy, ask for smart analytical skills, the soul of an activist and truth online and see what you get.

Nobody analyzes anything, anymore. Google is so transparent the names and IP addresses of those spied upon are published in what opaque world? Google's claimed transparency kept copies of the take down pages in Google cache? Waybackmachine shows those pages the government confiscated where? This is cloudy, murky transparency to avoid losing market share back to hotbot.com, to avoid losing Amazon sales of smart phones for people who never analyze the lies in their smart phone.

Whatever you search for (Internet Censorship America and derivitives, Free Speech rights online, web news blackouts, etc., come back to your computer at random times and see what you find next week, next month, the month after that, next year.

Go to google, bing and yahoo, find MSM articles instructing you to no worry, be happy. We are not protecting Big Gov from civilian oversight. We are not protecting banks, Wall Street and large multinations from informed, savvy, angry consumers. We are just spreading fascism totalinairanism brutal oppressive regime protection of powerplants onto the Internet. It is necessary, it is for your own good. That is what TPP IP laws and Feinstein Obama IP laws do, spread the warmth and love, the protectionism of government corruption and multinational criminal enterprises for your own good. Big http://tiny.cc/yrrxnw brother has to cover up corporate murder, pollution, monopolizing and racketeering is watching. Yes, by all means go to best buy and buy a trinket toy privacy software that the CIA and Air Force Cyber Wing cannot penetrate. Turn on your obsolete computer or TV and beware of government lies, deceit, purposeful disinformation and cover ups too many commercials during the news, too many Amazon ads on google and bing. Google will give your search user data to Big Brother.

The internet is a dyamic force, web pages come and go, statistics change, slowly or rapidly. Entities like yandex.com and google change, daily. But the overall trend is more propaganda, less truth; more Government Censorship and multinational blacklistings.

One cannot surf the web on one day and "see" Internet censorship. Computer and web gurus, people gifted in spatial relations will smell rats the soonest.

Free Speech not only in America, but pretty much worldwide, is in the hands of Google, Obama, and Feinstein. Buy Feinstein Obama freedom of speech boobleheads at huge discounts from Google-Amazon. When some of the smartest computer geeks on the planet say the Internet is censored, http://tinyurl.com/av29ngz it makes it more believable. To those who are not web and computer geeks (facebook and twitter users are * not * computer geeks), go here for same subject, written in tutorial fashion. (Big Brother banning free speech online) http://tinyurl.com/b8qumxc here. This link will make sense to both women and the I.T. challenged http://tinyurl.com/b8qumxc. Said tutorial article and my opednews.com writers profile go into my web-IT background more than this article. In a private email to Rob Kall, I referrred to the web as Disinformation Technology. Opednews.com is one of the few honest places left. How many times per month does google and bing not serve up opednews.com's "taboo subject pages"? There are too many ways for corporate criminals and corrupt government to shut down lawful free speech dissidence online.

Tags, keywords, keyphrases: pipa, sopa, cispa, coica, tpp, obama feinstein executive order, obama feinstein eo, obama feinstein internet censorship, internet block, internet freedom, censorship in the internet, big brother, big brother 2012, free speech, human rights, internet iron curtain, web censorship, information ban, lawful speech online.

Kern River Preserve, Audubon Saviors of Birds and Riparian Ecosystems

By Tracy Turner

 

[[ali1]]

 

Riparian habitats are stream, creek and river habitats, and the ecosystems along freshwater streams. North America has destroyed slightly over 99% of its former, pristine riparian ecosystems. The less than one percent of riparian habitat that remains is an oasis for rare, endangered or on the virtual brink of extinction wildlife, plants, insects and fish. Often this very riparian sanctuary that is all that remains to prevent the total extirpation of a tree species, types of fish, particular bird species, butterfly or rare, endangered animal.

 

The word Audubon http://www.kernaudubonsociety.org/KASprograms.html is a reasonably popular (450,000 times monthly) search in Google, the word bird searched for over 45.5 million times per month. The word riparian is searched for 60,500 times monthly, littoral 823,000 times per month. Google users search for birds, but not where to search for actual physical, living birds in the outdoors.

 

This article is about those who valiantly find habitat to save, acquire a foothold, negotiate with neighbors to buy more land and convert it back into natural habitat. Sometimes the work is as difficult as cleaning up a farm or ranch trash dump and re-planting native plants in the former dumpsite.

 

Wikipedia's first paragraph on riparian zones: A riparian zone or riparian area is the interface between land and a river or stream. Plant habitats and communities along the river margins and banks are called riparian vegetation, characterized by hydrophilic plants. Riparian zones are significant in ecology, environmental management, and civil engineering because of their role in soil conservation, their habitat biodiversity, and the influence they have on fauna and aquatic ecosystems, including grassland, woodland, wetland or even non-vegetative. In some regions the terms riparian woodland, riparian forest, riparian buffer zone, or riparian strip are used to characterize a riparian zone. The word "riparian" is derived from Latin ripa, meaning riverbank. End wiki.

 

Both Nature Conservancy and Audubon are examples of organizations that have developed relationships with landowners (farmers, ranchers, those who have inherited large tracts of fallow land) and buy the property at a fair price with an agreement not to put tract houses and McDonalds on the land.

 

The KRP http://kern.audubon.org (Kern River Preserve) in California is one such project.

 

People like Bob Barnes, Reed Tollefson, Allison http://www.natureali.org/ Sheehey and Jeff King have given the best years of their lives to the Kern River Preserve. There are two national treasures in America that have been overlooked by many people: 1) Nature Sanctuaries, Ecological Preserves of various organizations, Audubon Preserves and Nature Conservancy projects. 2) The people who staff, fundraise, donate to, go to work for and endeavor to care for these projects and parcels of land. Audubon exists on public donations.

 

Imagine working as hard as a farmer, rancher, etc. for low pay but for a cause. Imagine having a PhD and working for one-quarter the pay because you love the work and organization's mission. There are riparian ecosystem projects all over America, and people with similar desires, work ethics and beliefs as Barnes, Tollefson and Sheehey all over America. Many work for Audubon, others for Nature Conservancy. Nature Conservancy who entrusted it to Audubon California founded the Kern River Preserve.

 

 Nature Conservancy tends to find and grow embryos sanctuaries, Audubon tends to expand, reforest and manage long term. One way or another, the donations of the generous help preserve or hopefully restore bird species like Southwestern Willow Flycatcher and Tricolor Blackbird live.

 

Audubon Kern River Preserve The Kern River Preserve is managed by Audubon -California for the preservation of one of California's finest remaining riparian forests ...

18747 California 178 Weldon, California 93283
(760) 378-2531

Plants from all 6 surrounding bioregions dot and crowd the natural Kern River Preserve landscape. All the preserves and nature sanctuaries from coast to coast are a national treasure. KRP is the crown jewel, but how and why it is the crown jewel take patience and observation and pockets full of plant finder, bird finder, pocket guides to wildlife, etc. Bring food, bottled water, insect spray in spring and summer, sunscreen; there are the deluxe model porta-potties on site. Dress in layers with a raincoat or poncho, late fall through mid spring.

Supporting Audubon and Nature Conservancy allows their staff to educate visitors, work graciously with volunteers and run programs for school children and high school. These student programs can encourage a route from school to wildlife biologist, field engineer or research analyst assistant.

 

The first two people this writer ever met on the preserve were a husband and wife planting trees during their summer vacation.

 

The Sierra Club gave Allison Sheehey a lifetime achievement award for her work, expertise, website, etc. Allison's bioregions and geography http://tinyurl.com/avzhkwd   page is as good a place as any to become initially acquainted with this amazing lady. Jeff King works with volunteers, working with Jeff one learns quickly, the day goes by fast. Reed Tollefson has spent a great portion of his life reforesting and healing the natural environment and expanding the land holdings of the preserve. His expertise includes what is kept as Audubon, what may potentially become Nation Wilderness (Domeland Wilderness, through which the South Fork Kern River runs if you traveled upstream). Reed Tollefson is like a juggler with many balls in the air, donations, and long range plans, the day's chores, answering visitor questions, etc. Somehow, he never drops a ball.

 

About one year out of a dozen the perfect amounts of snow, rain, snowmelt and warmth produce breathtaking wildflowers, higher than normal amounts of birds and wildlife visiting as they migrate in spring, etc. Places like Kern River Preserve are best seen repeatedly. One anonymous donor bought an entire ranch, larger than those already acquired by KRP and donated it to the preserve.

 

When visiting any Audubon, Nature Conservancy or other nature preserve, check the local weather long-range before planning an adventure http://tinyurl.com/byvpppn . Kern River Preserve has a distinct hot and cold cycle and separate but related dry wet cycle.

 

  Watch for the water flow of the South Fork to be between median and max http://tinyurl.com/be9rmh9 . (Do not approach dangerous whitewater at flood stage and drown). Call ahead.

 

KRP is located at: N 35.66399 W 118.34455, visible in this Acme Mapper overhead http://tinyurl.com/asf4uk2 .

 

One of the most important aspects of riparian conservation is water quality issues, what neighboring properties both upstream and downstream do with water in regards to plant/animal habitat. Nature conservation is complicated, restoration more complicated. Reed, Allison, Birdie, Jeff King and the other staff and volunteers have many years of naturalist knowledge and experience amongst them. These small bands of people are responsible for huge parcels of land. One can mentally extrapolate similar people in similar facilities coast to coast.

Keywords and concepts to search for online, mix and match: Birds, Avian, riparian, littoral, riparian wildlife habitat, littoral ecosystem, riparian ecosystem, Audubon sanctuary, Audubon preserve, nature conservancy ecological preservation, Audubon ecological preservation. Do not forget to add the name of your state.

Censored & Oppressed; Women's Rights Online ~ Deaf Mute Blind Barefoot In Kitchen-- Check Foreign Search Engines to See

By Tracy Turner

 

Blacklisted Uncensored Alternative Alternative News Articles - Breaking News, Opinion & OpEds - opednews.com Tracy Turner

 

Expose -- Internet Censorship Women's Rights Oppression -- Shut That Thing Down

 

If women have all their rights taken away, who is next? That would probably be me, so what you have is a male computer and web geek writing about women's rights. Internet pioneer Jon Postel would cry if he could see what financial opportunists monopolists, politicians and criminally crooked corporations are doing and not doing on the Internet with our all of our rights. This article uses women's and human rights to show a distinct pattern. Women gifted in pattern recognition (spatial relations gifted, computer programmers, etc.) will pick this up the quickest. Do not use the web to do McMartin preschool goes viral because of this article. By the end of the article, most of you should know how to research who censors the internet and covers up rights oppression, who is gentically mutating ovaries, etc.

 

Sky Dayton (Sky hired every female computer geek he could find) of EarthLink Network saw the World Wide Web as a new form of communication to bring people together and a medium wherein people would communicate better. Many women see the social media of twitter and Facebook as a means of saving their rights, a vast majority unaware how the rich and powerful crush women's rights covertly online. Internet Pioneer Jon Postel lived long enough to see people of all faiths, religions and nationalities emailing each other after meeting online. Professional paid web character assassins would not have pleased him.

 

Does Putin have a Mistress? Do not search for the answer where you normally do, step outside your comfort zone and use Czechoslovakian Search Engine -- http://seznam.cz/ and Russian Search Engine -- http://www.yandex.com/ to find out if Putin has a mistress. Putin and his government stifle the free speech of seznam and yandex and all who do searches in seznam and yandex. Again out of your normal routine, use http://seznam.cz/ and http://yandex.com/ but this time try using less is more, not the full question, just search for "Putin mistress' (capitalization is irrelevant here).

 

Now use American http://www.Google.com and http://www.Bing.com see the difference in the information on Putin's mistress. Now some bad news, what Putin does with seznam and yandex is what virtually all US Politicians and large, rich, fat men (big Multinational corporations) do with US-based http://ask.com/ and http://google.com/ and http://bing.com/US and http://yahoo.com/ and http://aolsearch.com. It is called Blacklisting, anything that offends the Citizens United crowd, including lamestream media, gets blacklisted -- censored, free speech stomped into nothing.

 

What if Putin was the Pentagon here in the US? What if Putin having a Mistress was instead the military allowing female rape victims to be raped by their male military co-workers and doing absolutely nothing (to hush it up). Women in military service get raped, the military and Pentagon cover it up. The woman tries many avenues, puts it all on her Facebook wall, tweets it, has her nephew put it on a web page and submit the web page to all the us search engines. The average nephew who builds a web page builds something buried 2,374 in Google results.

 

All large US government departments and all large corporations have anywhere from a few people to many who find military rape victims lady's page buried 2,374 deep (webpage SEO issues,) and the military includes the web page or site on that weeks or months blacklist letter to bing, google, yahoo, twitter, facebook, etc.

 

George W. Bush had a debacle trying to have hobby rockets nearly outlawed. The people the BATFE went after were primarily families launching hobby rockets with kids on weekends. It is a licensed, serious hobby with rockets built in garages hitting 50,000 feet. I was one of the licensed rocket flyers, the case went to federal court, Bush lost and this was and is extremely embarrassing to Bush.

 

"George W. Bush BATFE ACPC" searched at any of these; results are sparse and there is noting too scathing on pages found. Free Speech, you can express anything and government and big business blacklists it. Try it yourself: http://ask.com/ and http://google.com/ and http://bing.com/US and http://yahoo.com/ and http://aolsearch.com. Bush's most embarrassing debacle besides Pepsi Grand Canyon and it just vanishes. Barely a hiccup left, online.

 

Now here is a real kicker, go to foreign nations and search for "George W. Bush BATFE ACPC" Iranian (Farsi) - http://www.parseek.com/ Czechoslovakian Czech -- http://seznam.cz/ Russian Cyrillic -- http://www.yandex.com/ Sweden http://search.lycos.com/.

 

1998 the Internet was the wild, Wild West where you could send an email bomb and ruin someone's email. Jonathan Postel was alive. The average web user could ftp; build web pages without any software widgets the way I still do pages. It has crept, like the tide creeping in during a nice picnic. Everybody in Facebook and Google thinks they have free speech and millions of people seeing their free speech.

 

What does Uranium have to do with Women's rights? Do you have a right to know how many deformed babies are born near AeroJet's depleted uranium bullet testing and manufacturing plant in Chino, California?

 

  Are deformed Chino baby numbers a national secret keeping us all safe? How about deformed Oak Ridge, Paducah, and Portsmouth and Fernald babies? All that Uranium in all the mentioned sites and not one deformed baby anywhere online in our free, open democracy.   This is probably one of the most carefully blacklisted subjects online, women, babies, uranium along with uranium metal workers fabricators and cancer.

 

Go to just seznam and yandex engines above and do a search for depleted uranium babies. Look at depleted uranium babies WebPages, as well as go to images (note images in seznam Czech language are Obrazky ) or videos and look around. Use search engines to find new search engines. Blacklists and censorship online is rampant in our free and open democracy. Write Google and Bing, Facebook and twitter snail mail letters and demand free, open, unfettered access to your issues.

 

Men are messing with your reproductive rights. Going to http://Yandex.com, searching in Yandex images and yandex web for depleted uranium babies shows you how the same people who want to outlaw birth control and * really messing with women's reproductive rights *. Depleted Uranium babies and outlawing the pill are a dark black and a light gray of the same issue and the same politicians.

 

Go to http://seznam.com and http://yandex.com/ and look at the regular web and images.   Example, search for "depleted uranium birth defects Fallujah". Read and look at the painful, gut wrenching articles of fat, rich, bald powerful American men messing with the reproductive rights of poor, defenseless foreign women.  

Women for the most part would not send their daughter to be raped in a Uranium hotspot overseas so she could give birth to a Depleted Uranium baby. But some men would, because men and war and America are "honorable" traditions.

 

Major Doug Rokke tried and still tries to "shut that thing down", meaning shutting down depleted uranium. Google Doug Rokke Rational Wiki and look what the Pentagon and Nuclear Power Plant Industry (General Electric, Rachel Maddow's boss) did to Doug Rokke. Every Doug Rokke expose is challenged with paid DU shills who make Doug and his friends Arnie Gunderson, Helen Caldicott and Leuren Moret look like the fools they are not.  

 

  Use any and all search engines on this page to check out the disinfo campaign, your tax dollars at work smearing Leuren Moret and Helen Caldicott. You pay taxes to have Uncle Sam malicious gossip against Leuren and Helen, while you financially support the advertisers on bing and google who blacklist Leuren Moret and Helen Caldicotts best web pages, photos and videos. There are ongoing campaigns online of paid government and or corporate apologists at work, just like before the collapse of the former Soviet Union.

 

You should now be empowered with some research skills to research any issue online, but not take Google, Facebook or twitter's word for anything. Find some friends who speak French and use http://voila.fr to read about US trashing of women's reproductive rights overseas with Depleted Uranium.

   

Search for women's suffrage Colorado on http://yandex.com. Do not sleep with politicians who support DU, which is the house, the Senate and the President. Colorado suffrage got Colorado women their vote. My wife is big on Colorado woman's suffrage to gain or keep rights. Advertisers say women spend 2/3 of everything spent in America. Shut that thing down. You all have far more power than you imagine, organize it.

 

If Jonathan Postel were here, what would he recommend? My best friend is an IT Guru, he said we will have the kind of internet people tolerate. If every woman in America boycotted google and boycotted googles biggest advertisers, and dug in like Jack's wife playing scrabble, google would be forced to unveil all the personal web pages of lady Gulf Wars who were a) raped in the military and it was covered up; b) exposed to Depleted Uranium, tainted vaccines, military HAZMAT wastes burn pits on base then had miscarriages, aborted premature birth and/or a baby with birth defects; and c) was exposed to DU and military HAZMAT and now has cancer and gets marginal health care at a VA hospital. It is literally impossible for hundreds of personal health pages of women vets to not be hosted on godaddy.com, fatcow.com, etc. Do not blame godaddy and fatcow, it is business, government and big search engines like google, bing, yahoo, askjeeves and aolsearch hiding the truth from you.

 

GE/Westinghouse, FOXNEWS, the military-nuclear-complex justified sending women to war to "work" in depleted uranium zones and have their ovaries bombarded with Alpha emitters that cause birth defects, while their potential male suitors (or rapists) were having their testes irradiated with uranium inhaled, drank in water or injested with food. Apologists galore will argue routes of exposure, etc. to draw attention away from what it is, war crimes against humanity and American troops reproductive systems irradiated. It is beyond increduluous that there is not a single Veteran with a deformed child in google and bing.

 

Use the search engines below to look for (Take each sentence fragment and search it alone, what is between qutoes is the search) these kinds of searches: "Obama drone attacks". "Obama drone children". "Obama drone women". "Obama drone kids". "Drone strikes children". "Drone attacks children". "Israeli drone strikes gaza". "Palestinian drone strikes Israel". Here are the seach engines to use:

 

Iranian (Farsi) - http://www.parseek.com/  

Czechoslovakian Czech -- http://seznam.cz/  

Russian Cyrillic -- http://www.yandex.com/  

Sweden http://search.lycos.com/

France French - http://www.voila.fr/

 

Anybody who searches one phrase on one web portal is missing a bigger picture.   Feel free to improvise and search keywords from your interests, whether they are National Weather Services billion bullets or Obama being punitive to whistle blowers.

 

Painful. But using cake recipes to prove how TV and internet portals shield the truth from us as example does not work, cake recipes are not censored non-free speech. This writer strongly suspects French women would be appalled at the censorship, find French English bilingual friends to help you use http://www.voila.fr/ to uncover more truth.

 

Go back to the Iranian, Czechoslovakian, Russian, Sweden and French dynamic web spiders (as opposed to static manual directories like dmoz) and search for these topics. But his time, think of your own related keywords and you may even use google trends or google keyword tool to find keywords you did not think of.

 

  "US military rape victims" is an excellent example to search the foreign search engines. But thinking slightly out of the box would be "navy rape victims" and "US navy rape victims". Sometimes all the searches above do not find the specific type of webpage or story you want to use for an article, etc. But other times when you do not find what you expected, it is better. Using seznam or parseek and looking for depleted uranium netted me videos of millions of dead seashells on Pakistani beaches. For the last two years I have looked for evidence online of Uranium used as oxidizer (Uranium perchlorate) and Uranium metal used as fuel. Could the seashells be evidence of a massive plume of Uranium oxide killing sea life? It deserves to be investigated. The millions of dead seashells may be a much more important find than what I hoped to find.

 

How about the obvious counterpart, so obvious one can miss them? "American Air Force rape", etc., keep improvising until you are an expert at research online. If you want to see how much censorship power the pentagon has, use the foreign search engines and the thinking out of the box tools and compare.

 

Many wives and girlfriends read Lady's home journal and graciously do the salads and vegetables for the family. But Lady's home journal does not do Exposes on "Obama's Hillary Clinton, Michael Taylor and Monsanto and Agent Orange Corn and Soy". A search of that whole last sentence should be done on the Iranian, Czechoslovakian, Russian, Sweden and French Dynamic web spiders. More out of the box, related keywords to search for can be found at http://www.google.com/trends/ and https://adwords.google.com/.

 

Now to learn to think how the real world works on a closed, no-free-speech, hide the truth internet. Let us go back to "Obama's Hillary Clinton, Michael Taylor and Monsanto and Agent Orange Corn and Soy". Do you really think Obama and his staff left a smoking gun lying around online linking Obama to the most hated multinational on Earth, hated by a world-wide audience? So drop the Obama off, but never forget he is Hillary and Michael Taylor and Monsanto's enabler.

 

Do searches of "Hillary Clinton, Michael Taylor and Monsanto and Agent Orange Corn and Soy". More results by dropping the self-evident enable or Clinton and Taylor. Now do three successive searches at the following search engines:

 

Iranian (Farsi) - http://www.parseek.com/

 

Czechoslovakian Czech -- http://seznam.cz/

 

Russian Cyrillic -- http://www.yandex.com/

 

Sweden http://search.lycos.com/

 

Search for these as three separate searches in all four web portals above, one: "Monsanto Agent Orange Corn and Soy". Two: "Hillary Clinton, Michael Taylor and Monsanto".   Three "Hillary Clinton, Michael Taylor, Obama, Monsanto.

   

Every last one of us is letting free speech online boil slowly like a frog. Find out what it means here http://www.opednews.com/articles/FROG-BOIL-by-boomerang-090803-878.html. The smartest Internet Guru I know told me "we will have the Internet of the future that people allow us to have, the one they settle for". Unix Adminstrators, female -- 1, male-99. Here's the thing about going from a mere Facebook user to some flavor of computer geek, there is every level imaginable to strive for and to arrive at.

Anyone who actually looks out what is happening in here, this is womens rights, civil rights, constitutional rights, the reproductive right of you and women overseas, etc. Learn how to find US War crimes videos. Do not bother posting them to vimeo or youtube, Uncle Sam will make vimeo and youtube remove them within 24-36 hours, usually. Learn how to download war crimes videos, teach friends and family how to download war crimes videos of US and Israeli (marines, troops, soldiers, contractors, Blackwater personell). Host the videos on your own website because they disappear never to return on youtube.

Search for drug company experiements women third world countries. Look up the names of Phizer et al. If you got the knack of this quickly, you would do well with C++, Unix, XHTML, DHTML. There is a shortage of smart, have a knack for it computer geeks. Jon Postel is passed, my guess is he would have urged women to become Jonatha's, web geeks versed in several languages. The US Air Force has a Cyber Wing of Super-Computer Geeks. It is certain women's rights activist worldwide could strive at being sudo, super user in Unix, etc., and exposing the drug company atrocites, the Agent Orange birth defects, the du babies, etc.

 

The Air Force Cyber Wing cannot possibly control the entire Internet, covertly. Neither can Aerojet, Monsanto or Pfizer.

 

Many women would say DU and Fallujah congential heart defects are not a women's issue here, Batshit Crazy Ann Coulter, Sara Palin and Michele Bachmann would trivialize this war crime atrocity with some trite these people had this coming. All of us, men and women, can turn our back on an American made outdoor, free-range Auschwitz. AeroJet, the Pentagon, Air Force Cyber Wing, GE/Westinghouse, Hillary and Obama will spread this evil into Iran and http://parseek.com will go off-line and you will be that much more blind to any truth that still may temporaily exist online.

   

Rob Kall asked me to state what search engines I used to make this article. Everyone of those within the article. Parseek and Lycos are, as of 11 Novemer 2012, excellent search portals at this time.

 

Look at http://tinyurl.com/azdm2zq this seashell die off, which * should be * in google and youtube, as an easily found item. Numerous people would take still phots and videos of seashells dying by the millions in Pakistan. Why would the military-government complex of the US try so hard to hide a bi-valve die-off? Environmentalist could search for the by-products of depleted uranium warheads, the by-products of the military burning uranium as fuel and using uranium perchlorate as oxidizer.

 

The new thermobaric Hellfire missile probably weighs more, has more Uranium in it (fuel, oxidizer, shaped charge). Someone needs to atomically and chemically do an autopsy on the dead shellfish in Pakistan, expect many future deformed kids in Pakistan, keeping America safe. Biologists should be looking for Uranium perchlorate, Strontium nitrate, Barium nitrate and Uranium oxides in much larger amounts than from Iraq and Fallujah.

 

Ladies, many of you have husbands, boyfriends, parents, children. These issues affect all of us, which in no way downplays women-specific issues. There is a pattern that affect us all, that pattern needed exposure to public sentiment. How much money will you spend on corporations, cable TV and politicians who form a covert dictatorship that censors your free expression and censors what you can see, hear or read?

 

There is probably a correlation between this video tinyurl.com/azdm2zq and Hellfire thermobaric warhead missiles. Therefore, these dead shellfish videos are sure to disappear, courtesy of Homeland Security.

 

If each woman reading this taught two or three friends to search the internet like this, taught their kids, husbands or boyfriends this rudimentary lesson it would open a lot of eyes. Why use google or aol search to be lied to and censored, to have your free speech rights taken away by Bill Gates and bing?

 

Download or have friends and family download videos and pictures, post them all over the internet * but self-hosted, not on a vimeo or youtube portal *. The issues in this article should not be McMartin pre-school goes viral for 24 hours and you know this. These issues are a one-million woman March on Washington-worthy.

 

There are examples too numerous to mention here of free speech oppresion and censorship online. Other examples for you to research for your own edification, where did all the Navajo websites on Uranium cancer, birth defects on the Navajo reservation go? Are the Navajo drones armed? How many Navajo women have birth defect kids and why are their websites being erased out of google, bing, yahoo and aolsearch?

 

There is a money-making symbiosis between all of government and the huge, rich, fat, old men and corporations that is engaged in media control, social media control, etc. There is a revolving door between Bill and Hillary and Uranium WMD and Boeing, Monsanto, et al. Try using these new search tools again and search for FEMA Camps. Vary it around, search for camps where we fight wars, as in refugee camps (present or past?). Search for concentration camps in the US, do you find things that may be blacklisted in US search engines?  

I'd be remiss not to mention SEO, web page/site search engine optimization. It is how you end up in top ten organic results in search engines.

 

Watch for Uranium perchlorate pollution online, it is only a matter of time. Watch for those blogs and websites to be blacklisted and replaced with paid shill disinfo rhetoric that a Rhesus monkey could type and ads seeking to get deep into your pocket or purse. Watch for the US GovernCommerce to shut down or bomb the hell out of your new foreign search portals.

 

Watch the US search engines for evidence they disappear native American web pages about Uranium mining cancer, native peoples issues, native women veterans, etc. on reservations and Obama drones flying over the reservations, even doing infrared surveilance at night (four corners states where uranium cancer is part of native American life. Reservation womenare exposed to DU at home and in military. To not find a birth defect in US search engines is a lie.   Use every foreign search spider you can find. See if Steve Wozniak will help all of you with DMOZ. In plain English, all activist boycott the US search portals and both register political websites, research projects and do searches in ODP - Open Directory Project.

 

Between now and when that happens, a group of well funded women could setup webserver on a broadband pipeline in locations like Norway, Grand Cayman and France to host evesearch.com or jonatha.com. Something like google, but not subject to US Government Authoritarianism   censorship, Greed and WarMongering Blacklist Profiteers. Whether we ever did or not, when Obama bombs the Iranian Parseek.com there will need to be somewhere else to go to search for woman raped in American military. We have had too many women that do war and politics as poorly as the men.The homepage should say Naomi Wolfe for President.

 

Do some searches on Olive Biodiesel on all the search engines, look for this website (the description will vary, but not the URL)*. In yandex, google etc. searching olive biodiesel and related keywords you should sometimes see results: Olive Biodiesel Biofuel Bioenergy

olivebiodiesel .com/

Longevity of olive trees makes olive biodiesel more practical, economical than other biofuel crops. When President Naomi Wolfe makes me Agriculture Secretary, we will build the infrastructure to run on olive oil biodiesel.

 

Digressing, my olive site is SEO'd, Search Engine Optimized pretty well. Not everything you cannot find is censorhip, blacklisted, etc. But when all the activist websites online are missing from all the US Search engines, it is Obama's Watergate and afraid to say it is also Michelle Obama's watergate. Call it the Obama Webgate Debacle. This is our free speech, men's too. But I wanted the biggest voting block to not ignore this, to learn SEO, spiders, open directories, etc.

 

 

*Always look up what you do not know as you have time, like url.

Sig Heil Fuhrer Obama

By Tracy Turner


[[hittmitt]]

Do you need to be abducted, interned against your will, drugged and reprogrammed to appreciate those who slither for the Military-Security-Complex? Then NDAA and FM-3-39 PSYOPS may just be the PSYOPS brainwashing you need during your stay in a foreign prison. All American's today, pre and post-election, are in the position of the German people in 1933. Including chanting and waving at the Fuhrer.

 

For those of Latin persusion, go http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kopRTfWeNo and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0xJNXFuHP4 here. The immigrant "camps are concentration camps.

 

As millions of Americans drift towards the ranks of Tea Partiers, Greens, Independents, Socialists and apolitical, the Republicans and Democrats have election-tampered, used Citizen United advertising gimmicks and the star-power of the celebrities to vainly try to keep their power and relevance. Numerous blogs, websites and social media venues expose the dark underpinnings of a duopoly obsessed with nationalizing car makers, privatizing wars, nationalizing banks, manipulating currencies and trying to artificially inflate housing, food, energy costs and even the cost of water. The duopoly has plans to privatize water, with Monsanto as first in line to ration water to the future thirsty masses.

If the US Government cannot make you eat your GMO's and salute the flag and one or both political parties, they have laws and infrastructure in place to brainwash loyalty into you. The duopoly has spent $5.8 billion on the 2012 elections and government's popularity has never been lower.

The American people observe with palpable paranoia that is not paranoia, as the worst Democratic administration in US history plays musical chairs with the worst Republican administration in US history. Does it poll well with most Americans? Then it must be de-funded. Inversely, simultaneous war and physical austerity that polls poorly is argued as necessary and put into law. The Duopoly twins blame each other while behaving ever more despicably.

With the United States Central Intelligence Agency drug sales vastly exceeding those of the former Colombian Drug Cartel, there is new meaning to both the war on drugs and the war on the http://tinyurl.com/akdc5a7 Taliban.

Industries that have created large, dangerous, ill-thought-out business strategies such as Monsanto and Dow are being kept afloat by newspapers owned by Republican hedge funds and by Republicans and Democrats who are now relying on lamestream media and celebrity for sparse votes in low voter turnouts.

All three debates made it clear the Duopoly and Wallstreet intend to dominate wealth, give the public physical austerity and fight wars. The Occupy debacle makes clear that the Duopoly will ramp up torture, chemical weapons, LRAD sound cannons -- whatever it takes to physically beat any ideas or concerns not originated by duopolists.

 

American Department of Fuhrerland Security and TSA VIPR -- Adolph Hitler's Brownshirts

 


[[boilf]]

 

In a previous article http://tinyurl.com/b4x78hu nearly a year ago I compared Obama's behavior by signing NDAA to Hitler's per-World War II behavior and February 28, 1933 Hitler coercing President Hindenburg to sign article 48, an "emergency" decree authorizing Hitler to suspend all civil rights, arrest (and execute) any suspicious person. The Bush administration and the Patriot Act and Obama administration NDAA are eerily similar. NDAA's section 1021's legalization of the government being able to murder or permanently incarcerate anyone the President dislikes is tantamount to Hitler's article 48.

 

TSA's Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response -- have run more than 17,000 unannounced checkpoints and other search operations in the two last years. Uniformed Jack booted storm troopers show up and scan, search, detain people in subway, bus or train stations or at impromptu checkpoints on interstate highways. "Show me your papers, old man""

 

TSA VIPR and other intrusions into American life are touted as necessary to fighting terrorism and keeping us safe from Al Quada. Section 802 of the US Patriot Act expands the meaning of terrorism. Thousands of Americans have been put in prisons for terrorist threat. Many of those imprisoned and permanently labeled terrorist would prior to 9/11 have been sent to an anger management class or a drug and alcohol rehab. These same people, post Patriot act Section 802 have or will continue to be in prison and have lifetime records as terrorists.

 

Other provisions of the Patriot Act allow government to request student university records, what clubs a student belonged to, grades, health issues or anything in a students record.

 

At the crossroads of this election, most Americans have bought into the mindless ideology of the two inhumane camps that plunged us into a totalitarian nightmare. It is as if the Mussolini Fascists are in one camp, the German Nazis in the other, with voters picking the "good" side and blaming the "bad side". Both the Republicans and Democrats are defending themselves against Green, Independent, Occupy, etc. with the Patriot Act and NDAA, TSA and Fuhrerland Security. How much torture, false imprisonment, violence via police brutality, lies, disinformation, natural resource grabs dressed up in WMD clothing will be rammed down our throats this time? With no election ahead, why not just call out the National Guard, declare martial law and shoot Occupiers on sight?

 

People want to know why Occupy failed, blame the fact that it started in a park. As if the baton blows knocking Occupiers teeth out did not happen, the female Occupiers having their breasts grabbed never happened.

 

Occupy was a sleeping, snoring America having one short gasp for breath, rolling over and going back to snoring. Any true change will not come of voting, but of realizing Mussolini's posse lost and Hitler's posse just one, again.

 

 

The average American is consumed with being a good, loyal consumer and owning more. Ask them what they think of NDAA. Ask ten people in public what they think of NDAA, not one of the ten will have a clue. The same ten can tell you the price of a Droid or iPhone. Yes, the disinformation age, where those who could do life in prison or be murdered legally by Obama do not know that, but can price quote a device that keeps them misinformed.

 

Adult Americans (most of them) eat, sleep, drink, have a sex life and learn how to be more loyal consumers by getting deeply brainwashed from the Ministry of Cable TV Truth. Certainly if Pat Act section 802, NDAA 1021 and TSA VIPR were exactly like Hitler's Nazis in 1933 my TV would say so?

 

TSA VIPR is one of our enemies, but the iPhones and Droids falsely claim it is the abortionists who are the enemy. It is big oil. The biggest enemy in America is the disinformation-filled ordinary people. Apathy, indifference - those sent to prison under Patriot Act Section 802 were not I, therefore I do not care. Those who do care are in prison. At some point, more and more people will be imprisoned for re-programming, having their patriotism to the US Nazi party tuned up.

 

Everyone needs a culprit to blame, someone to punish. 90% of America willingly let America become a Nazi regime, so some imaginary "them" did not gobble up all of "us". But us are peons, pawns, gullible who never once protested the Patriot Act, NDAA or PSYOPS FM-3-39. We listened to talking heads talk about Todd Akens stupid words while preparations by profiteers to enact NDAA and PSYOPS FM-3-39 were underway.

 

  [[ckptfascis]]   

Where else should we manipulate currency? Our captors are currency manipulators with a poverty draft. Part of their penchant is converting Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Iran to the US dollar. When new US pre-emptive wars start in 2013, think foreign currency converted to US dollars, among other motives. If you complain, we have a secret prison near Budapest and an IV line to plunge into your vein. Why would we make it legal to do this and then never use such a law? NDAA 1021 and 1022 are very detailed and are so important to Obama he sent his lawyers to court numerous times fighting having the law enjoined. Obama's lawyers have appealed the Judges enjoinment, said lawyers could not say if anyone has been locked up, tortured and killed under Obama's NDAA.

Watch for two kinds of false flags: Type 1) Attack at Benghazi was probably a false flag, look for more of them. 2) The government to manufacture a completely fictitious but believable to the dull masses domestic terrorist and blame it on Occupy, the Green and Indie parties, etc.

Watch for Paramilitary Police to dislocate the shoulders of anyone publicly disagreeing with Obama and the duopoly. Watch for anyone who looks like they could challenge the status quo of the duopoly to be beaten senseless or killed as an example to all that the duopoly rules us all with an iron fist. Heil Hitler, my President!

[[liberty]]

Bring me your income taxes, your poverty draftees and I will wage genocidal wars, pollute the Earth with military waste, steal possessions of others, make it legal to torture and imprison and murder my own people" When the amount of police brutality of Occupiers on Youtube quintuples, do not be surprised. The beatings of people by the police under Obama are Hitler's Liberty.

Obama signed NDAA and pledged never to use the law against us. If you believe him, ask yourself why he has and continues to criminalize politcal dissent in America? Obama claimed he would close Guntanamo, but drug and violent torture in Guantanamo continue. What part of he is just like Hitler is it that people do not get?

Google drone strikes in yandex.com images. You will see the women and children he killed.

I need this new law, but you can trust me with it, I will never use it against you - Obama paraphrased. http://youtu.be/nmfzDHyN9G0

Los Angeles Times Uses "Birtherism' As Pro GMO Science -- Yes On California Prop 37

By Tracy Turner

[[tellier]]
 

Los Angeles Times, which has taken the position of a Shill for Monsanto, BASF, DuPont, Dow, Bayer and Syngenta has offered up this Prop. 37: A better idea than labeling GMO's http://tinyurl.com/ack529j article by Alexandra Le Tellier. Writer Le Tellier has taken the same position as her employer, her main qualification for GMO debate is that she is a self-described "healthy foodie" who likes eating GMO's.

 

Though not self-described as such, would a healthy foodie who likes GMO's tend to "act naturally" most of the time? I would never want to butt heads with this woman or be alone together with her for a briefly long time. Le Tellier's GMO-gobbling healthy foodie qualifications to advise us on the science of food and health are omnipresent at FDA and Health and Human Services; these types of individuals approve All Natural GMO Agent Orange Corn Syrup. 38 Newspapers approve All Natural GMO Agent Orange Corn Syrup and most TV stations made a lot of money from Monsanto's pro-GMO Agent Orange Corn Syrup ads.

 

Perhaps I have "clearly misunderstood" her, as after reading her no on Prop 37 GMO labels essay, I want to vote yes more than ever. I do not think she intended the obvious healthy foodie gmo oxymoron,   but it made me ravenously nauseated for an Agent Orange GMO nut and corn-syrup health candy bar and a GMO Agent Orange soy health energy drink.

 

Now, then" healthy foodie who likes GMO, is there a small crowd of you healthy foodie GMO eaters, or just a few petite large ones?

 

Alexandra Le Tellier quotes people who wrote in and responds to them, making an extremely science-oriented case for voting Monsanto-health-conscious: Quote "CR, you frame perfectly why our nation is a mess. "I demand it, I want it now, and I don't care what science says."   We can't set a precedent on making scientific decisions based on your feelings. Anti-GMO = climate denial = anti vaccine = anti-stem cells = creationists = birthers, etc.   All want changes in policy because they think they are smarter than science." end quote. So, birthers? The science proving GMO's is safe is a quote about birthers? In LA Times?

 

The science behind voting Pro-Monsanto "healthy" has something to do with a scientist Le Tellier quotes, and said scientists goes into birthers as why we have to vote Pro-GMO-healthy-foodie? This is everything wrong with LA Times, all 37-38 other major California Newspapers putting similar dribble on the web and printed on paper. My wife and I stopped all the papers and buying out of news racks 12-15 years ago.

 

Alexandra Le Tellier, representing Los Angeles Times goes on in this and other similar articles with weak, pithy, poorly worded arguments that all reflect Monsanto stall tactics, Monsanto lies and a blatant disregard of the Study Showing Rat Tumors from GMO Corn Shakes up Officials http://tinyurl.com/ah9k4b6 . Le Tellier ignores the Showa Denko L-Tryptophan GMO disaster and the dead 37 and crippled for life 1,500 by omitting obvious evidence of GMO danger.

 

Which is more egregious, 38 California newspapers using their obvious pulpit to misinform and mislead the public, newspaper editors who allow their Le Tellier's to quote scientific "facts" containing the word "birthers" and equal sign symbols or the newspapers having the unmitigated gall to think they are now Faux Non-news?

 

Which is worse, 38 California newspapers being owned by a Republican hedge fund posing as Astroturf-roots health-foodie-gmo-gobblers or several generations of registered voters deciding issues based on vague hormonal influences, the physical attractiveness of the Monsanto shills and notions that how they feel on election day is empirical scientific evidence. It may not be obvious, but Le Tellier and the editors of Los Angeles Times have a right to believe anything and to vote any way that they please, for any candidate or on any issue. But do Los Angeles Times and its cohorts have the right to present Monsanto's greed and dangerous responsibility as "scientific fact'?

 

We will apparently all have to do as LA Times, Le Tellier and Monsanto have always urged us to do, just keep eating increasing amounts of Agent Orange Corn & Soy and wait and see if there is a human health danger. Le Tellier makes an even weaker and pithier implied case in her article that waiting to see if you die from Agent Orange GMO Soy and Corn cancer is scientific method and avoids "everything wrong with the country". The sad thing is that thousands of young women of child-bearing years are going to feed themselves Agent Orange GMO Soy and Corn while bottle-feeding their babies Agent Orange GMO Soy baby formula while they wait and see if there is a health hazard. This is the same approach used with DDT insecticide and Thalidomide. The young women reading Le Tellier's hubris think LA Times editors vetted and fact-checked her misinformation posed as fact.

 

It is obvious Le Tellier has never sprayed a golf course with Agent Orange with a pesticide license, grown 170 acres of corn and watermelon at an agricultural school, etc. But she is giving the public the green light to consume a diet of genetically engineered food routinely soaked with a powerful mutating hormone. The chances that the gene splices will mutate and cause harm is very high but Le Tellier herself is to uninformed to understand the potential consequences of soaking corn and soy gene splices in agent orange one generation of crop seed after another.

 

Le Tellier's, LA Times and Monsanto's position seems to be "lets just wait until something goes wrong". The Showa Denko L-Tryptophan GMO disaster already did go wrong.

 

Truththeory.com has this photo of Vietnamese Agent Orange victims on their website about Agent Orange: http://tinyurl.com/bjarxtd

Theecosocialist.com has this photo of a Vietnamese Agent Orange victim on their website about Agent Orange: http://tinyurl.com/betlgrn

Vietnam Agent Orange victims again http://tinyurl.com/bfl9s3m

Le Tellier did what the 38 Newspapers did; let's ignore the GMO part of our diet, because the pesticides are probably worse. But the six big pesticide/biotech GMO firms grow the food as a package deal, GMO soaked in pesticides. Articles like Le Tellier's ask us to ignore Monsanto altering our intestinal bacteria into genetically altered GMO Roundup-ready intestinal bacteria. Many of us do not want our intestinal bacteria to be genetically modified by Agent Orange GMO Soy and Corn. Ironically, newspapers are going bankrupt or constantly being bought out and restructured because they do what LA Times is doing. They cater to their Tea Partier or Birthers owners and totally disenfranchise the 65% of Californians who are Democrat, Green, Indie or apolitical. It is so odd, LA Times calls our home desperate to sell newspaper subscriptions but carries no Democrat, Green, Indie or apolitical viewpoint. Numerous articles and opinions in the Times offend those who are not Tea Partiers, much of this writers LA Times angst has built up from years of similar Fox News type misinformation presented as "news".

Le Tellier could have phones a USDA Pesticide inspector who follows this issue closely and written something with facts in it rather than quoting an anonymous scientist who used the word birthers to promote GMO.

Please Vote Yes On California Prop 37.

Stratocratic Venom Stings Self -- Military Pollution - V

By Tracy Turner


  [[iraqburn]]

Most Americans go through their lives, assuming a nuclear power plant nearby will not melt down or assuming military nerve gas on a train will not derail and leak. Assuming the water they drink, bathe in is not exposing them to Strontium 90 or Air Force electroplating Chrome 6. America has a strong military by virtue of every single one of us eating, drinking and bathing in trace amounts of military pollution. There is not a single man, woman or child in America who has not been exposed to some amount of military toxin.

 

This is the fifth (and probably final) article in this series, articles one, two, three and four respectively are here: http://tiny.cc/fskimw and http://tiny.cc/lukimw and http://tiny.cc/lvkimw and http://tinyurl.com/8kaf5qy.

  [[centri]]

Trains derail frequently in the US, imagine one of these trains derailing near your home or work:

Nuclear spent fuel dry cask (probably containing spent fuel)   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y93riMwoa6M . Concrete dry casks (empty in this case) for nuclear spent fuel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBaEXiQajw8. This train video contains two DODX (Dept of Defense) nuclear casks being moved: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TPod_0l7bY. This last one has four nuclear dry casks from a military nuke reactor, be patient as it is the last of four trains: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IqfB_wXe94. The more I read about America's dependence on nuclear military might and nuclear electricity (began as Atoms For Peace as a front for the Nuke Bomb industry), the more I believe we will be the first humans to go extinct. In Europe, people protest against trains full of radioactivity. Here, we just passively await our own extinction.

 

Imagine this train derailing near your home http://youtu.be/7IqfB_wXe94. Go to time frame 2:30, that is four Uranium fuel rod dry casks filled with military nuke reactor fuel rods. I have links to four different trains in my last of the five articles.

 

I wrote these articles figuring that people searching for military pollution and their state would run across opednews, as well as to draw attention to the Navajo and Uranium mining, the Hawaiians and Depleted Uranium target practice, etc.

 

Researching these five articles changed my outlook a lot, because of knowledge of military pollution in America such as this: http://tinyurl.com/92d65pp "Seven nuclear bombs' worth of plutonium escaped into air ducts at the Rocky Flats weapons plant near Denver over the 38 years of the plant's operation, Federal officials said yesterday."

 

Tennessee Arnold Engineering Development Center (USAF) Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC) is located in Coffee and Franklin Counties in south-central Tennessee near the cities of Manchester and Tullahoma.

 

In 1950 and 1951, AEDC purchased approximately 7,000 acres of additional land that created the 4,000-acre Woods Reservoir, which provides cooling water for AEDC's test facilities. AEDC also includes a 3,000-foot airstrip. Approximately 30,000 acres of AEDC property is heavily forested and covered under a management plan allowing the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency to operate and manage a wildlife program.  

 

AEDC is a test organization of the Air Force Material Command and its primary mission is to simulate actual flight conditions in aerodynamic, propulsion, and space ground-test facilities. In addition, AEDC conducts research and applies new technology to improve environmental facilities and associated testing techniques and instrumentation.   Several potentially contaminated source areas are located at AEDC, including Landfill No.2, Leaching Pit No.2, Retention Reservoir, and the Main Testing Area. Landfill No. 2 is a 15-acre landfill used for disposal of hazardous wastes. Leaching Pit No. 2 was used for disposal of chrome plating solutions and other acidic wastes. The Retention Reservoir is a 175-acre impoundment which is used as a retention basin for wastewaters and surface water runoff. Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), trichloroethane, methylene chloride, and toluene are reported to have entered the Retention Reservoir.

 

The Main Testing Area, situated on developed lands in the central portion of AEDC, has been the site of a wide variety of waste handling activities and spills involving jet and rocket fuels, chlorofluorocarbon solvents, nitric acid, and other shop wastes. PCBs have been detected in soil samples collected at the Main Testing Area.   Surface water runoff from the Main Testing Area enters Woods Reservoir via several streams. The AEDC drinking water intake, which serves 3,800 workers, is located at the confluence of Brumalow Creek and Woods Reservoir.

Memphis Defense Depot (DLA) The Memphis Defense Depot is comprised of 642 acres in south central Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee. It is located in a mixed residential/commercial/industrial area. The site consists of two contiguous sections: Dunn Field, an open storage and burial area of about 60 acres; and the main installation.

 

The depot has conducted numerous operations dealing with hazardous substances.   A total of 75 waste disposal areas and other areas of concern have been identified at the facility, most of them in Dunn Field. Among the wastes disposed of, according to the Department of Defense (DOD), are oil, grease, paints, paint thinners, methyl bromide, and pesticides. In addition, stored materials have reportedly spilled and leaked at the main installation, as well as at Dunn Field, contaminating soil with volatile organic compounds, metals, PCBs, polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons, and pesticides.   Shallow ground water is contaminated with arsenic, lead, chromium, nickel, tetrachloroethene, and trichloroethene, according to tests conducted in 1989 by DOD. An estimated 154,300 people obtain drinking water from public and private wells within 4 miles of the site. The nearest well, within 0.5 mile of hazardous substances at the depot, also provides water for commercial food production. These wells draw from deeper ground water, which is not now contaminated.  

 

There was recreational fishing on Lake Danielson, a 4-acre man-made lake on the facility, until 1986, when DOD tests found pesticides (DDD, DDE, dieldrin, and chlordane) and PCBs in lake sediment and fish tissue. The tests also found cadmium, chromium, lead, and zinc in lake sediments.

 

Milan Army Ammunition Plant The Milan Army Ammunition Plant (AAP) in Milan, Gibson County, Tennessee, produces munitions for the U.S. Army. The "O" Line at Milan, a conventional munition demobilization facility, operated from 1942 until December 1978. The major function of the "O" Line was to remove explosives (TNT and TNT-RDX mixtures) from munitions by injecting a high-pressure stream of hot water and steam into the open cavity of the munitions. Effluent from the "O" Line operation was discharged into 11 unlined settling ponds with an estimated capacity of 5.5 million gallons. Between 1971 and 1981, sediments were routinely dredged from the ponds and stored on the ground.

 

In 1981, the ponds were lined, and the accumulated sediments placed into the ponds.   Analyses of samples collected in March 1979 from on-site water supply and monitoring wells indicated the presence of explosives and heavy metals. Three water supply wells serving the City of Milan and numerous private wells are located less than 3 miles from the area of known ground water contamination. The direction of ground water flow has not been completely determined. AAP supply wells are located on-site. More than 13,000 people within 3 miles of the site depend on ground water as a source of drinking water.

 

[[fernald]]

 

Oak Ridge Reservation (USDOE) The Oak Ridge Reservation (ORR), operated by the U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE), covers about 58,000 acres in Oak Ridge, in Anderson and Roane Counties, Tennessee. The area around the reservation is predominately rural except for the City of Oak Ridge (population 28,000).

 

ORR consists of three major operating facilities: Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a research lab that includes nuclear reactors, chemical plants, and radiosotope production labs; Oak Ridge Gaseous Diffusion Plant, a production complex previously engaged primarily in the enrichment of uranium-235; and the Y-12 Plant, located immediately adjacent to the City of Oak Ridge, which produces nuclear weapon components, processes nuclear materials, and performs other related functions.  

 

ORR operations generate a variety of radioactive, nonradioactive, and mixed (radioactive and nonradioactive) hazardous wastes, many of which in the past were disposed of or stored on-site. Leakage from inactive disposal and storage facilities, coupled with spills and other accidental releases, has contaminated many areas in and around ORR.   Metals, organics, and radionuclides have been detected in ORR soil, ground water, and surface water. At present, ground water contamination appears confined to ORR.   A 1983 study by USDOE estimates that 733,000 pounds of elemental mercury were released to the environment in the 1950s and 1960s around the Y-12 Plant. Additional studies revealed that some 170,000 pounds of mercury are contained in the sediments and floodplain of about a 15-mile length of East Fork Poplar Creek (EFPC), which has its headwaters at Y-12, and that some 500 pounds of mercury annually leave this watershed.

Mercury and cesium-137 have been detected at higher than background levels in sediments of the Clinch River and the Tennessee River near Chattanooga, some 118 miles downstream of ORR. Seven water intakes in this 118-mile stretch provide drinking water to an estimated 43,200 people. Wetlands in the Blyth Ferry Water Fowl Management Area are also near the 118-mile stretch of the river.   EFPC flows through the City of Oak Ridge, exposing people to mercury-contaminated soils in the easily accessible areas of the floodplains of the creek. USDOE has removed soil at several locations along the creek where mercury concentrations were particularly high.

Texas Air Force Plant #4 occupies approximately 650 acres in Fort Worth, Tarrant County, Texas. General Dynamics operates the plant, which manufactures aircraft for the Air Force. In November 1982, the Air Force and General Dynamics notified EPA that hazardous substances were found in a storm water outfall that drains into a creek on the west side of the plant.

Under Air Force supervision, General Dynamics constructed a french drain and a collection basin at the outfall. Since that time, leachate from the drain and outfall has been collected, stored, and disposed of in an EPA-regulated disposal facility. In 1983, the Air Force removed 21,300 cubic yards of contaminated soil from closed waste pits and disposed of the soil at a regulated disposal facility.

The Air Force has drilled numerous test holes and 97 monitoring wells in and around 20 areas, which cover a total of about 8 acres. Many of the areas have contained hazardous substances. Analyses of the wells indicate that ground water in the upper zone under the site is contaminated with organic chemicals and heavy metals. Several deeper wells were drilled at the site into the Paluxy Aquifer, the source of drinking water for nearby residents, including White Settlement (population 13,420). Two wells have been found to be contaminated by trans-1,2-dichloroethylene and trichloroethylene.

Lone Star Army Ammunition Plant Lone Star Army Ammunition Plant, located in Texarkana, Bowie County, Texas, produces a variety of explosives and munitions. During World War II, explosives were disposed of by detonation above- and below-ground in an area covering about 5 acres. Tests conducted by the Army indicate that heavy metals (lead and chromium) contaminate monitoring wells south of the disposal site along the border of the facility.   About 1,200 people use private wells within 3 miles of the site as a source of drinking water.

Longhorn Army Ammunition Plant Under IRP, the Army has identified 11 contaminated or potentially contaminated areas. Among them are the Active Burning Grounds, where flammable wastes have been burned since the early 1950s; the Unlined Evaporation Pond (in the Active Burning Grounds), into which an estimated 16,000 gallons per day of waste containing arsenic, barium, chromium, lead, zinc, and organic nitrogen compounds were discharged during 1972-84; the Old Landfill, where trinitrotoluene (TNT) wastes were disposed of during 1942-44; the Former TNT Production Area; and the Ground Signal Test Area and South Test Area, where various rocket motors and ammunition are tested.

A 1984 IRP study reports barium, chromium, and lead in sediments from the Unlined Evaporation Pond, and barium in soil from the Old Landfill. The study also found that arsenic, barium, chromium, lead, zinc, 1,3-dinitrobenzene, and 1,3,5-trinitrobenzene are present in on-site monitoring wells near the Active Burning Grounds. An estimated 1,900 people obtain drinking water from wells within 3 miles of hazardous substances on LAAP. The nearest well is 500 feet from LAAP's northern boundary.

Dinitrobenzene, 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene, nitrobenzene, 2,4-dinitrobenzene, and 2,6-dinitrotoluene are present in surface waters, according to the 1984 IRP study. The contaminants originate from at least two areas in LAAP: the Old Landfill and the Former TNT Production Area. Harrison Bayou flows east of the Old Landfill; the Production Area is drained by Goose Prairie Creek and Central Creek. Goose Prairie Creek, Central Creek, and Harrison Bayou drain into Caddo Lake. Caddo Lake, a part of the Big Cypress Bayou, which flows into the Red River, is used for recreational activities.

Pantex Plant (USDOE) The Pantex Plant is in Pantex Village, Carson County, Texas, approximately 17 miles northeast of Amarillo. The area is primarily agricultural. The plant is owned by the U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE) and operated under contract by Mason and Hangar-Siles Mason Co. The plant itself covers 9,100 acres. In addition, there is a buffer zone consisting of a 1,077-acre portion of Pantex Lake owned by USDOE and 3,170 acres of land leased by USDOE from Texas Technological University.  

 

The plant began in 1942 as an Army Ordnance Corps facility. Nuclear operations began in 1950. Current operations -- which include fabrication of nuclear weapon ammunition and assembly, testing, and disassembly of nuclear weapons -- involve 141 solid waste management units. Past and present waste practices include burning of chemical wastes in unlined pits, burial of wastes in unlined landfills, and discharging of plant waste waters into on-site surface waters. More than 150 potential contamination sources have resulted from these practices, of which 15 are being evaluated initially.  

 

In 1988, a USDOE contractor detected acetone, toluene, tetrahydrofuran, trichloroethylene (TCE), bromoform, 1,2-dichloroethane, arsenic, barium, chromium, lead, mercury, and silver in waste waters discharged to unlined ditches and surface impoundments on the site. USDOE also detected acetone, TCE, tetrahydrofuran, toluene, 1,2-dichloroethane, 2-butanone, tetrachloroethylene, and 1,1,1-trichloroethane in soil underlying a chemical burn pit used for evaporation and percolation of solvents contaminated with high explosives, and uranium in soil underlying firing grounds FS-4, FS-5, and FS-10.   This makes Pantex Plant one of the most toxic places in America. Carson County (Pantex) is in the North Panhandle of Texas, more http://www.txpeer.org/toxictour/pantex.html.

 

Toluene is present at 329 feet below the surface in soils underlying the pit. The Ogallala Aquifer occurs at a depth of 390 to 420 feet beneath the site. A zone of low permeability occurs beneath the site at a depth of 350 feet; the thickness varies from 25 to 100 feet. Contamination is documented in this zone. The aquifer serves as the primary source of domestic and municipal water supply. Amarillo has a blended system that provides water to 160,000 customers, approximately 36% of them from a well field within 4 miles of Pantex; 20 domestic wells have been identified within 1 mile. Pumping by the city has created a cone of depression, causing ground water underlying Pantex to flow toward the municipal well field.

 

Utah Hill Air Force Base There are 10 areas of known hazardous waste disposal at Hill AFB. The 10, which cover a total of 54 acres, are: 3 landfills, 3 chemical disposal pits, 1 evaporation pond, 1 area of unlined beds for drying sludge from waste water treatment plants, and 2 fire training areas. Landfill #1 operated as a solid waste dump and may have received waste oils and solvents, many hazardous. The largest accumulation of hazardous waste is believed to be at Landfill #3, which accepted drums of chemicals, industrial sludges, solvent cleaning bottoms, and waste solvents. Landfill #4 received small quantities of sulfuric acid, chromic acid, methyl ethyl ketone, and treatment plant sludges, along with municipal wastes. Chemical Disposal Pits #1 and #2 received liquid chemicals. Pit #3 received trichloroethylene and associated sludges. Berman Pond was used for evaporation of waste from electroplating and other industrial operations.   In addition, Hill AFB deposited heavy metals and various solutions at Landfill #5 on the Utah Test and Training Range. The State detected hazardous organic substances in seepage water on the slope adjacent to the northwestern perimeter of Hill AFB Landfills #3 and 4.

Monticello Mill Tailings (DOE) The Monticello Mill Tailings Site covers 78 acres at the southern edge of Monticello in San Juan County, Utah. The U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE) now owns the site.

The mill opened in 1942, recovering vanadium from the uranium/vanadium ores of the Colorado Plateau. The Atomic Energy Commission, predecessor of USDOE, bought the site in 1948, recovering uranium until the mill closed permanently in January 1960. In subsequent years, the two agencies took various actions to dismantle the mill, stabilize the piles of tailings, clean up the ore-stock pile areas, and demolish and bury the mill foundation.

Ore processing activities at the mill generated large quantities of mill tailings that now cover approximately 68 acres. These tailings were segregated into four discrete piles on the basis of content and mill process: the carbonate pile, vanadium pile, acid pile, and east pile. The potentially radioactive contaminated materials (mill tailings and contaminated soils) total approximately 1.6 million tons, according to a 1984 USDOE report. In 1961, the tailings piles were covered with soil and revegetated. At least two piles have no liners.

The site is underlain by a shallow alluvial aquifer, which is contaminated with arsenic (0.19 mg/l), selenium (0.16 mg/l), uranium (12.8 mg/l), and vanadium (4.7 mg/l), according to a 1988 USDOE report. Within 3 miles of the site, municipal and private wells tapping a deeper aquifer provide drinking water to an estimated 1,900 people. A municipal well is less than 1,200 feet from the tailings piles. Montezuma Creek, which flows through the middle of the tailings piles, is also contaminated with arsenic, selenium, uranium, and vanadium, according to the 1988 USDOE report. The levels of some contaminants exceed water quality standards. The creek is used for irrigation within 3 miles downstream of the site.

Radon was present in the air near the piles in tests conducted in 1983-84 by a USDOE contractor. The nearest residential area is approximately 1,000 feet from the tailings piles, and agricultural land starts at 1,700 feet.

Monticello Radioactive Contaminated Properties The Town of Monticello (population about 2,000) in San Juan County in southeastern Utah is the site of a mill that processed vanadium and uranium ore from 1942 to 1960. Contractors operated the mill for the Federal government. Prior to the mid-1970s, radioactive tailings were widely dispersed throughout the town. Some appear to have been used as fill material and as aggregate for mortar and concrete, while others appear to have been carried from the mill by wind and water.

Various agencies, including EPA, the State Health Department, and the U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE), have conducted radiological surveys of town properties. Above-background levels of radioactivity were detected during each survey. USDOE has authorized cleanup of 15 properties and is studying several more for inclusion in its Site Restoration Program. However, USDOE may lack the authority to clean up properties contaminated by materials brought in from the mill in Dry Valley.

Ogden Defense Depot (DLA) (a part of the Defense Logistics Agency) covers 1,139 acres 0.5 mile west of Ogden, Weber County, Utah. Since 1941, the facility has maintained and repaired vehicles and equipment. Its operations include plating, degreasing, and painting of metals. The depot also recontainerizes chemicals for storage on-site and for shipment off-site. Various highly toxic chemical warfare agents are buried on the site. The exact location and quantities are unknown.

Since 1981, the State and the Defense Logistics Agency have investigated disposal activities at the depot.

Tooele Army Depot (North Area) The Tooele Army Depot (TEAD) is in Tooele, Tooele County, Utah, 35 miles southwest of Salt Lake City. The North Area covers about 25,000 acres in Tooele Valley south and west of Tooele.   Since 1943, TEAD has had a fourfold mission: store ammunition, demilitarize ammunition, rebuild military equipment, and store military equipment. In fulfilling its mission, TEAD decommissions munitions by cutting the casings and removing and recycling the explosive material. The casings are then rinsed with water to remove residual explosives. Between 1948 and 1965, rinse waters were discharged into the "TNT Washout Area," which covers less than 1 acre in the North Area. The Army has detected trinitrotoluene (TNT) and cyclomethylenetriamine (RDX), an experimental explosive, in soil near the TNT Washout Area, threatening ground water. About 2,500 people depend on wells within 3 miles of the site as a source of drinking water.

 

Washington McChord Air Force Base (Wash Rack/Treatment Area) McChord Air Force Base covers about 6,000 acres just south of Tacoma in Pierce County, Washington. It is on an upland plain, 5 miles east-southeast of Puget Sound. Since 1940, almost 500,000 gallons of hazardous substances have been used and disposed of on the base. The Air Force has detected chloroform, benzene, arsenic, chromium, and mercury in test wells on the base, as well as in surface drainage (Clover Creek) leaving the base.  

 

This NPL site consists of two areas: the liquid waste spill and disposal area adjacent to the wash rack and the industrial waste treatment system. The wash rack has been active since the 1940s. A wide variety of solvents, detergents, paints, and corrosion-removing compounds have been used there. Industrial wastes from other sources also were directed to the wash rack. The industrial waste treatment system includes an oil skimmer with two leach pits. McChord Air Force Base, the Lakewood Water District, and American Lake Gardens (a private development) get their drinking water from the aquifer partially underlying McChord. Well over 10,000 people within 3 miles of the base depend on the aquifer for their drinking water.

 

Bangor Naval Submarine Base (US Navy) The Bangor Naval Submarine Base covers 7,000 acres on Hood Canal near Silverdale, Kitsap County, Washington. The area around the base is primarily residential. Established in 1946, it now has the primary mission of basing Trident submarines.

In July 1987, a 6-acre hazardous waste site on the base known as Site A was placed on the NPL under the name "Bangor Ordnance Disposal."

The Bangor Naval Submarine Base is participating in the Installation Restoration Program (IRP), established in 1978. Under this program, the Department of Defense seeks to identify, investigate, and clean up contamination from hazardous materials. As part of IRP, the Navy has identified 19 additional waste areas within 1.5 miles of each other where industrial wastes and waste water containing explosives were mishandled. The areas include ordnance burn and disposal pits, pesticide storage and disposal areas, a PCB spill area, a portion of Hood Canal with contaminated sediments, and Clear Creek.

Cyclonite (RDX), trinitrotoluene (TNT), ammonium picrate, ammonium picramate, and propylene glycol dinitrate are present in numerous wells on the base, according to IRP tests conducted in 1983. An estimated 18,000 people, including base employees and local residents, obtain drinking water from public and private wells within 3 miles of hazardous substances on the base. Ground water is also used for irrigation.

The 1983 tests identified most of the same explosives, as well as copper and lead, in surface waters and shellfish in three locations on the base. The waters drain into Hood Canal and Clear Creek. Waste waters containing explosives were routinely discharged to surface waters, and ships in Hood Canal were painted with paints containing heavy metals. The Navy also has found these contaminants in shellfish in Hood Canal, which is used for recreational activities and contains commercially valuable fish and shellfish.

Bangor Ordnance Disposal (USNAVY) The Bangor Naval Submarine Base is near Bremerton, Kitsap County, Washington. Site A is a 6-acre hazardous waste site on the base used by the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team as a test range. Between 1965 and 1973, the U.S. Navy demilitarized over 2 million pounds of explosive ordnance at this base. Surface water and shallow ground water are contaminated with cyclonite (RDX) and trinitrotoluene (TNT). The site is 0.5 mile from Hood Canal, a sensitive marine environment. A small residential community lies 0.5 mile to the north in one possible direction of ground water flow.

 

Bonneville Power Administration Ross Complex (USDOE) According to a preliminary assessment made in 1986 by BPA, a number of storage and disposal areas pose a potential threat, including: DOB-1 Drainfield, where laboratory wastes were deposited; the Cold Creek Fill Area, where soil potentially contaminated with oil, PCBs, and heavy metals was disposed of; and the Fog Chamber Disposal Area, where capacitors containing PCBs were buried in trenches.   In 1987 and 1988, BPA sampled an on-site well; analyses detected chloroform, 1,1-dichloroethane, and 1,1,1-trichloroethane. An estimated 105,000 people in Vancouver obtain drinking water from public wells within 3 miles of the site.   Cold Creek is 450 feet downslope of the site. It is fed by shallow ground water that flows under the Ross Complex. Vancouver Lake, 1.5 miles from Cold Creek, is used for fishing and other recreational activities.

 

Fairchild Air Force Base (4 Waste Areas) Fairchild Air Force Base (AFB) occupies approximately 4,300 acres 12 miles west of Spokane, Spokane County, Washington. The base opened in 1942 as the Spokane Army Air Depot. Four waste areas covering 85 acres comprise the NPL site: Building 1034 French drain and dry well system; two landfills, one northeast of Taxiway 8 and one at Craig Road; and the industrial waste lagoons.

 

During past base activities, more than 4,000 drum equivalents of carbon tetrachloride and other solvents, paint wastes, plating sludges containing cadmium and lead, and related industrial wastes were disposed of in the four areas. The aquifer, which consists of Columbia River Flood Basalt, is highly fractured. These conditions facilitate movement of contaminants into ground water, as well as movement of contaminated ground water. A well within base boundaries serves as a standby water supply for the base's 5,200 employees. In addition, approximately 400 private wells serving about 20,000 people are within 3 miles of the facility.   West Medical Lake, Medical Lake, and Silver Lake are within 3 miles downstream of Fairchild AFB. These lakes support wildlife and are used for recreational activities.

 

Fort Lewis Logistics Center (USARMY) has operated on about 650 acres southeast of Tillicum, Pierce County, Washington, since 1942. The area around the center is military and residential. Its primary mission is to maintain, repair, and store military supplies.   Trichloroethylene (TCE) and trans-1,2-dichloroethylene (trans) are used as solvents at several locations and stored inside or adjacent to buildings. Until the 1970s, waste TCE and sludge containing TCE and petroleum were disposed of directly into the ground at three known areas in or adjacent to the center, which is in the northeast portion of the 86,500 acres occupied by Fort Lewis. Fort Lewis (Landfill No. 5) was placed on the NPL in July 1987.

 

n 1986, IRP studies detected TCE and trans, as well as low levels of 1,1-dichloroethylene, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, and 1,1-dichloroethane, in monitoring wells at the center. A plume of ground water in the shallow unconfined aquifer is contaminated with TCE. The plume extends toward Tillicum approximately 2 miles downgradient of the southern edge of the center, measures 2,500 feet wide, and reaches at least 80 feet below the water table, which is at 5-20 feet below the surface. The TCE plume passes within 100 feet of a public well serving Tillicum. The lower aquifer is also contaminated with TCE, according to tests conducted in 1988 by the Army. An estimated 46,000 people obtain drinking water from wells within 3 miles of hazardous substances at the center.

 

Industrial operations at Fort Lewis have included maintenance of aircraft and vehicles, repair and refurbishing of weapons, and neutralization of caustic paint-stripping waste and battery acids. Prior to the mid-1970s, wastes were disposed of in on-site landfills covering 225 acres. These disposal sites may have received hazardous wastes such as spent solvents, plating wastes, pesticides, and PCBs. The State has detected hazardous chemicals, including iron and manganese, in ground water on and off Landfill No. 5, which covers 104 acres. The Army has installed 11 monitoring wells near the landfill.

 

Hanford 100-Area (USDOE) Benton    Soils contaminated by radiological and chemical waste from plutonium manufacture for the Manhattan Project and subsequent activities. Groundwater contaminated by strontium-90, carbon-14, tritium and hexavalent chromium and discharges into the Columbia River, which is the water supply for over 170,000 people.

 

Hanford 200-Area (USDOE) Groundwater and soil contamination by tritium, uranium, cyanide, carbon tetrachloride, technetium-99 and other substances from processing, finishing and managing nuclear materials including plutonium for nuclear weapons.

 

Hanford 300-Area (USDOE) Groundwater contamination by uranium, VOCs, strontium-90 and tritium from nuclear fuel fabrication. Soil contamination by uranium, cobalt-60, copper, PCBs, chromium and possibly other substances. Uranium and TCE have been detected in groundwater adjacent to the Columbia River, which is used for drinking water for over 170,000 people.

 

Hanford 1100-Area (USDOE) Wells contaminated by VOCs including TCE and soil by asbestos, heavy metals and PCBs from maintenance activities.

 

McChord Air Force Base (Wash Rack/Treat) A layer of benzene-contaminated fuel emulsion is sitting on top of the water table. Benzene levels in the groundwater have now fallen below EPA safe drinking water levels.

Midnite Mine Surface water, groundwater, soil and sediments contamination by metals and radionuclides from former uranium ore mining.

 

Naval Air Station, Whidbey Island (Ault) Ault Field groundwater is contaminated by VOCs including TCE and TCA. Soils and sediments are contaminated by PCBs, heavy metals, pesticides, PAHs and dioxins.

 

Naval Air Station, Whidbey Island (Seaplane) Soil in areas of the seaplane base was contaminated by heavy metals including lead and arsenic, pesticides and PAHs. Contaminated soil has been removed; possible remaining groundwater, surface water and sediment contamination is not thought to pose a risk to human health or the environment.

 

Naval Undersea Warfare Station (4 Areas) Soil, sediments and groundwater contamination by PCBs, petroleum hydrocarbons, heavy metals and VOCs from base operations. Chemical contamination of local shellfish is no longer at levels that cause health concern but the area is closed to shellfishing because of sewage contamination from other sources.

 

Old Navy Dump/Manchester Lab (USEPA/NOAA) Former US Navy site. Firefighting training contaminated soil with dioxins and petroleum hydrocarbons. Hydraulic erosion of a landfill area contaminated sediments and shellfish in Clam Bay with PCBs, copper, lead and zinc. Seeps from the landfill contained elevated levels of copper, nickel, zinc and PCBs.

 

Port Hadlock Detachment (US Navy) Shellfish next to a former landfill contain elevated levels of heavy metals and pesticides.

 

Puget Sound Naval Shipyard Complex Soil, sediment and groundwater contamination by petroleum hydrocarbons, heavy metals, VOCs and PCBs. Groundwater flows into the Sinclair Inlet where it is a hazard to tribal fishermen, marine life and recreational users.

 

West Virginia Allegany Ballistics Laboratory (USNAVY) Allegany Ballistics Laboratory (ABL) is located in Mineral County, West Virginia, approximately 2 miles south of Cresaptown, Maryland. ABL occupies 1,628 acres and is situated on the flood plain of the North Branch of the Potomac River, along the West Virginia-Maryland state border. Surrounding land use is primarily agricultural with some forestry. The facility has been in operation since 1942, primarily for the research, development, and testing of solid propellants and motors for rockets, ammunition, and armaments for the Navy. ABL houses two operating plants. Plant 1 is owned by the Navy and occupies 1,572 acres of the ABL facility. The remaining 56 acres are owned and operated by Hercules, Inc. Operations at ABL have generated a variety of explosive and solvent wastes.

 

Until 1978, the majority of these wastes were disposed of in onsite disposal areas. Waste disposal and handling practices at the facility have resulted in several source areas of concern. Seven of these areas were aggregated into one source known as the Northern Riverside Waste Disposal Area (NRWDA). Other contamination sources include two previous burning ground areas; an inert non-ordnance landfill; a spent photographic developing solutions disposal areas; a sensitivity test area/surface water impoundment; and a beryllium landfill. Other sources of potential contamination exist at the site including a waste burning operation for the disposal of contaminated material.  

 

  The seven sites that make up NRWDA are an ordnance burning ground; an inert burning ground; a former solvent waste disposal pit; three acid disposal pits; a hazardous waste drum storage area; and an incinerator landfill.

 

Contaminants associated with these sources and detected in ground water and soil samples include explosives, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), acids, bases, laboratory and industrial wastes, bottom sludge from solvent recovery, metal plating pretreatment sludge, paints, and thinners. Some contaminants have moved offsite and were detected in the North Branch of the Potomac River, adjacent to the site.   Two ABL water supply wells were temporarily taken out of service in 1981 because they were found to contain VOCs. Recent testing of these wells, as well as numerous monitoring wells in the developed area, shows consistent contamination of the ground water with VOCs.

 

Wyoming F. E. Warren Air Force Base Gasoline, solvents, oil, lubricating oils, hydraulic fluid, ethylene glycol, batteries, battery acid, coal ash, fly ash, paint, and trichloroethylene were formerly disposed of on the base. TCE and chloroform (a degradation product of carbon tetrachloride) are present in monitoring wells on the base.

Plutonium and Uranium Legacy Today

 

During the Cold War, the Rocky Flats Plant was the primary facility for processing and machining the plutonium used in nuclear weapons. During the cold war, the

United States built and ran a massive industrial complex that produced tens of thousands of nuclear weapons.

 

Politicians and news pundits speak in terms of the cold war being "over". Much of the Plutonium, Technitium, Strontium, Uranium and Americium poisoning left behind by the cold war will be with us for twice or thrice the age of the Solar System we live in and even longer. During this "new age" of "terrorism" that poison is not only pollution, but much of it is potential weapons material that must be guarded.

 

"Calutrons" (California University Cyclotron) enriched Uranium into Plutonium for triggers to make thermonuclear bombs. Everywhere that Plutonium was enriched, smelted, machined, fabricated and assembled is a death zone, an area where sickness grabs the local population. The government claims some of these areas are now cleaned up. The water table under the city of Cincinatti will never, ever be cleaned up. One of the other elements of thermonuclear bombs is Tritium gas. Everywhere Tritium gas is manufactured is a community that has far more tumors and cancer than a pristine place far from nuclear bomb and depleted uranium bomb and bullet manufacturing.

 

The Pantex Plant in Texas, Fernald near Cincinnati Ohio, Savannah River Georgia, and Rocky Flats are all Plutonium polluted. This AlterNet excerpt puts Plutonium pollution into some context (the human mind cannot comprehend this type of poison): "From 1952 to 1989, the Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant smelt, purified and shaped over 70,000 plutonium triggers --each with a $4 million price tag and each with enough breathable particles of plutonium to kill every man, woman and child on the planet. Under the direction of the Atomic Energy Commission (later the Department of Energy), Dow Chemical, the notorious manufacturer of napalm and Agent Orange, operated the facility until 1975 with government-sanctioned environmental impunity. Rockwell International followed, with astonishing criminal environmental negligence that led to an unprecedented joint FBI and EPA raid in 1989 and the permanent halting of production."

Uranium Mining

Most of the uranium for the Manhattan Project came from rich deposits in Africa and Canada, but more than 400 mines eventually opened in the United States, primarily in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. After World

War II, uranium mining expanded dramatically, from 38,000 tons of ore in 1948 to 5.2 million tons in 1958 -- nearly all of it for nuclear weapons production.

 

The United States mined about 60 million tons of ore to produce this uranium.   Many

tons of natural uranium were needed to produce the several kilograms of enriched uranium used in the Hiroshima bomb.   For each kilogram of plutonium made for the U.S. arsenal, miners took roughly 1,000 tons of uranium ore from the ground.

 

Uranium Milling

A ton of uranium ore yields only a few pounds of uranium metal. The result is a dry purified concentrate called "yellowcake."   The milling produces large volumes of a sandlike byproduct called "mill tailings." These tailings contain both toxic heavy metals and radioactive radium and thorium. Uranium -- mill tailings account for a small fraction of the radioactivity in the byproducts of weapons production, but they constitute 96 percent of the total volume of radioactive byproducts that pollute the environment.  

 

Because uranium mills typically piled tailings without covers or containment, some

material was spread by wind and water. The primary hazard of these tailings is the emission of the radioactive gas radon.

 

Plutonium triggers: Rocky Flats secretly produced plutonium triggers or  "pits" for nuclear bombs--some 70,000 plutonium triggers over the course of more than 30 years (see timeline). By the late 1970s, as the truth began to spread, people protested at the bomb plant and worried about radioactive and toxic  waste in surrounding neighborhoods. Plutonium-trigger production ended in 1989 after the FBI and EPA raided the plant, leading to a grand jury investigation (which was eventually thwarted) -- excerpted from Kristen Iversens book, Full Body Burden.

 

As stated several times in previous articles, both the cold war and the depleted uranium war(s) have led to environmental racism (of the Navajo People), see the link after each state:

The biggest lie you read in print or see on TV is that the military-security-corporatacracy is keeping you safe. You, and everyone in America you have ever or will ever know, has been exposed to military industrial toxins. Look at articles 1-5 of this series of articles, there is almost nowhere to move to that does not have chemical, biological and/or atomic poison from the military and their contractors. Television does not tell you the truth, your learn the truth from researching many sources. There are a couple of states that currently lack Superfund sites, but will not remain that way with the US economy having reverted entirely back to war based commerce.

 

More people of color and Native Americans live near military/contractor Superfund sites than white people. In the Hollywood movie "The Dirty Dozen", Lee Marvin's cahracter and 11 other men are offered a deal to "cleanse themselves of the filth of prison" by commiting war atrocities within the high-pollution military-industrial-mainstream-media-complex. Circa 1990's into the foreseeable future, a remake of "The Dirty Dozen" would entail marines with javeline bazookas with warheads that deform the babies and cause malignat tumors on the local villagers for 4.6 billion years. Just think, you can leave the despicable filth of the privatized prison industrial complex, violate the Geneva Convention and spread US nuclear power plant and thermonuclear bomb filth in poor, third world nations. This makes the future remake "The Even Dirtier Dirty Dozen". Heroes, all, redeemed in the eyes of God and man. For each one of the dozen, there are easily 12 Navajo's with Leukemia and other Uranium diseases in the four corners states. For every soldier we supply, we poison 12 of us" understand chronic poisoning is often mistook for a lot of off-days, depression, etc. that is actually a body going hypo or hyperthyroid from Ammonium Perchlorate poisoning, etc.

 

Hollywood is so busy creating war boosterism to bring new life to the death industry they forgot how to do chronic poison documentaries on the Duponts and other war industries. Hollywood busies itself with the logisitcs of supporting Israel's next pre-emptive war and fails to count the bodies stacking up next to the superfund sites. Many of those who protest the pollution will be put in private prisons, but will not become Lee Marvin.

No Agent Orange Soy & Corn Deceptive Food - Yes On California Prop 37

By Tracy Turner

[[duster]]        

There are numerous articles all over the Internet, in University Libraries and Databases about Agent Orange, birth defects and cancer. This is actually much more current news now than it was during Viet Nam -- because of what the Pesticide (read that word as * poison *) lobby is doing with Agent Orange and your food supply.

 

Digressing to who is the Pesticide Lobby, those who petition government for carcinogenic poisons to be listed as non-carcinogenic poisons, etc. Think of Dow and Monsanto as the father of poison, BASF and Syngenta as the son of poison and Dupont and Bayer as the holy ghost of poison. Excuse the irreverence, but you cannot have the fathers, sons and holy ghosts of insecticides and weed killers without having the others. What one does, the others follow suit or similarly do. If one makes Agent Orange Corn, the others start working on Agent Orange Barley, Rice or possibly wheat.

 

Numerous articles online can fill the reader in on Dow, Monsanto and Agent Orange (when you finish this, Google "Agent Blue And The Business Of Killing Rice By Gerard Greenfield". One important detail many articles miss is what is Agent Orange in the sense of what does it do, how does it work. Dimethylamine salt of 2,4-D-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid and 2,4,5-Trichlorophenoxyacetic acid are extremely omnipotent auxins (pronounced like oxens), plant growth stimulants not to help plants, but to make weeds, even trees grow so rapidly the cells of the plant grow themselves to death. These two Auxins are two of the most popular broadleaf weed killers ever invented. I am going to use a word the manufacturers of these chemicals do not like -- mutagen. 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T mutate the weed, tree or plant so that it grows itself to death.

 

Before we get into Agent Orange "All Natural Corn Tortilla Chips" and All Natural "Soy Veggie Burgers" in all 50 of the US States, there is something you need to know and see. Out of the world's six largest pesticide companies, two, Dow and Monsanto, supplied the 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T sprayed all over the Vietnamese people and their food in Vietnam. The results were deformed babies and people with cancer all over Viet Nam. As stated, this is new news, because Dow, Monsanto, Bayer, Syngenta, DuPont and BASF are flooding California TV stations with and ad ever 8-9 minutes saying to vote negatory on California Prop 37, GMO food labeling.

 

The big pesticide companies want to invent numerous new foods that are genetically modified to not die when showered with Agent Orange, 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T (to remove weeds from Corn and Soy with Agent Orange). Then the food industry will sell you the Agent Orange Corn as "all natural" corn syrup, Corn Tortilla chips, etc. and the soy as "all natural" Veggie Burgers, filler in soups, etc., etc. The six pesticide giants plan to make all kinds of new foods that can be de-weeded with a powerful mutagen auxins and those foods will also be sold to you as "all natural" when in fact they are GMO/Agent Orange you name it they want to feed it to you.

 

This is current news on other levels, those rice fields, taro paddies, etc. the were Sprayed with Dow Monsanto Agent Orange in the 1960's are still giving people cancer and deformed babies and women having miscarriages now, in 2012 and to the best of my knowledge women will be having deformed kids in Vietnam for quite some time into the future. Men, women and children, cows and pigs, chickens in Vietnam get tumors and cancer all the time from the same Agent Orange that they want to spray all over the Corn and Soy that ends up in your Corn Oil, Fritos, Corn tortillas, etc. Look at food labels in the store carefully, look at all the corn and soy and ask yourself if Agent Orange Corn and Soy is for you.

 

Buyer Beware, these photos will give you nightmares! The graphics that follow, the hyperlinks link to what many would call war crimes against humanity, of which Dow and Monsanto were involved. The photos are of people whose human cells encountered powerful growth auxins, Agent Orange herbicide:

 

Truththeory.com has this photo of Vietnamese Agent Orange victims on their website about Agent Orange: http://tinyurl.com/bjarxtd

 

Theecosocialist.com has this photo of a Vietnamese Agent Orange victim on their website about Agent Orange: http://tinyurl.com/betlgrn

 

Vietnam Agent Orange victims again http://tinyurl.com/bfl9s3m

 

The pesticide poison industry is running TV ads saying that they are the victims of some bizarre lawyers scheme (they are implying yes on Prop 37 California GMO labels are a scheme to make lawyers rich). Yes on 37 is to at least give you, a person who eats food, a clue that GMO Corn or GMO Soy is in something you can buy or put back on the shelf at the grocery store. If you know it is GMO Corn or Soy, you have a good clue it is Agent Orange Corn or Soy. Look at what Agent Orange in rice and taro did to the Vietnamese people in the links above.

 

The blatant deception of Monsanto, BASF, DuPont, Syngenta (Atrazine well water poison) Bayer (Honeybee extinction, CCD) and Dow Chemicals is despicable. So are the 289,000 people who die horrible pesticide deaths annually. Follow the money, grassroots on Yes on Prop 37 and big pesticide on no http://tinyurl.com/d2xm8vp.

I Vote 4 Oil Mafia Kleptocrats

By Tracy Turner


[[mafia1]]

 

Astroturf vote4oil advertisements sometimes seem to air one every 4-5 minutes during prime time. The Kelsie Astroturf ad is obviously targeting under-30 women, one of her quips is in the under-30 woman vernacular, "we gotta do it". Knowing the ad was concocted by the Petroleum Dons and their Consigliores, what is it (in Kelsie's vernacular) "that we gotta do"? The oil Don's ( Bob Dudley - BP, Marvin Odum - Royal Dutch Shell, Rex W. Tillerson -- Exxon Mobile, John S. Watson -- Chevron and Ryan M. Lance - Conocco Phillips) do not pay focus groups, consultants, Hollywood commercial production companies and the TV prime time ad spots without wanting to get something big back in return.

 

The oil mafia does not need a winner and a loser in the race for US President. The oil mafia was, is and will continue to be, rather like God. The oil mafia is about profits, not anything more, ever.   Vote 4 Big Oil Profits.

 

Now for some introductions: We are Ryan M. Lance, Richard L. Armitage, Richard H. Auchinleck, James E. Copeland, Jr., Jody Freeman, Robert A. Niblock, William K. Reilly, and William E. Wade Jr. of Conocco Phillips.

 

We are Michael J. Boskin, Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, Larry R. Faulkner, Jay S. Fishman, Henrietta H. Fore, Kenneth C. Frazier, William W. George, Samuel J. Palmisano, Steven S. Reinemund, Rex W. Tillerson and Edward E. Whiteacre, Jr of Exxon Mobile.

 

We are Jorma Ollila, Hans Wijers, Peter Voser and Simon Henry of Royal Dutch Shell.

 

We are Charles T. Hagel, Linnet F. Deily, Ronald D. Sugar, Kevin W. Sharer, Robert E. Denham and Carl Ware of Chevron.

 

We are Carl-Henric Svanberg, Robert Dudley, Iain Conn, Brian Gilvary and Byron Grote, the people at BP who brought you the Gulf Oil (Deepwater Horizon) poisonings that are still ongoing.

 

[[mafia2]]

The oil mafia profits are being impacted by wind and solar energy and by biofuel. Some questions not asked or answered by the Astroturf ads and TV stations profiting from the Astroturf ads:

 

Past tense - How much did the oil mafia influence George W. Bush to launch his crusade into Iran? One (old, dated but nevertheless) analyst estimate figured that Iraq contains 1/7 of all the oil left on Earth. Regardless of the amount, Iraq has a lot of oil and it is now wide open to the oil mafia to drain Iraqi oil and profit from the sales. How much did the oil mafia influence George W. Bush to invade Afghanistan? When the US invades a foreign nation, the Marines, Army, Navy and Air Force become the nations largest gas, diesel, jet propulsion and fuel oil consumers. Oil is the black slave that drives navy ships, transport aircraft, Humvees and 5-ton trucks.

 

Present tense -- How much is the oil mafia pressuring both Obama and Romney to invade Syria and Iran. Both wars would consume vast amounts of diesel, gas, jet propulsion fuel and nautical fuel oil. Not only the US forces, but the Germans, Australians, Canadians all buy petroleum to do war. The oil company executives have to make due with less Lear Jets, Gulfstreams, Bentleys, Ferraris, and Luxury Flats in London, Paris and Amsterdam when NATO is not fighting a war.

 

Future tense -- The period of industry and government being on their best behavior (only in a few basic senses) and pouring billions in Citizens United PAC-money into the TV industry (who will never give up their pretense of being impartial, highly moral journalists) is near an end. Post election, oil wants a return on its TV AstroTurf campaign. The subliminal message is in the public dull mind that attacking Iran will make gasoline cheap and spur economic recovery (create jobs). Do you believe the oil mafia are job creators?

 

There are two other reasons for the actors and actresses telling us to be energy voters. All five of the big oil mafia companies are trying to repaint their image after the Deepwater Horizon debacle and the accurate picture in the public mind of former BP CEO Tony Hayward anxious to get back to his life. Gulf of Mexico residents will be getting various forms of chronic and terminal cancers and illnesses from long-term exposure to petrol-chemicals. Chronic exposure to petroleum and Corexit will shorten many, many lives in the Gulf area, where predominant amounts of people live on or near the coast.

 

The five richest companies on Earth need more Mansions, more private jets; more fleets of exotic cars and war are a sure means to increase profits. If America goes to war shortly after 11/6/2012, we can only guess what the real reason is.

 

[[mafia3]]

 

The oil mafia are mostly foreign nationals and are some of the richest war profiteers on the planet. They profit during peace, but profit so much more during war. Under Citizens United law, their "votes" count more than yours or mine ever will. If most of us want peace and they want war as war sells more oil, then we will have war. America has no economy save a depression/war economy.

 

The oil mafia men and a couple of women have spent billions to circumvent American democracy. Someone in US politics, presumably Romney, "owes" the oil mafia for running vote4oil ads. Are the many ads expected to deliver a Republican House, Senate and President who owe big oil what?

 

After the new US President is sworn in, do they get to use any legal or illegal means to wipe out the green movement? The Kelsie "we gotta do it" Astroturf campaign is in large part an expensive attempt to wipe out green in America.


No matter who wins the election, the Bush/Cheney/Halliburton oil/gas fracking chemicals/coal mountaintop removal agenda will continue seamlessly both now and in 2016.

 

Royal Dutch Shell and British Petroleum cannot legally vote in America. Most of their executive boards cannot vote in America. What kind of Democracy is Royal Dutch Shell and British Petroleum shoving down our collective American throats?

[[mafia4]]


 Political activist Woodie Guthrie used to sing, this land is your land, this land is my land" If Romney wins the election, probably every square inch of BLM (Bureau of Land Management), National Forest in America will have an oil rig or a gas drilling aparatus on it. Anything profitable underground will be strip-mined. The same maybe or probably will be true of Obama in a second term. It is certain the next President will acquiesce every impulse the oil and gas crows has. If they want to drill on a ranch and the owner does not agree, the Romney or Obama government will grant the drilling company an exemption, no owner agreement needed drill anyway. What Bush and Cheney set up will only get worse after the election. Global warming and human extinction, in the vernacular of Kelsie the Republican energizer Princess, "we gotta do it".

 

I read several articles today, names of authors withheld, as this is not about attacking the authors. Said articles and some of the commenters expressed how futile it is to vote green for Jill Stein, one or more expressed that it is a wasted vote.

 

There is a Starfish analogy http://tinyurl.com/6lrruzj that is a good partial argument against those who feel they must follow the Obama herd just to not "waste" their vote. In New York, many would say get over yourself already. Some of the articles and comments made me look at it another way. If I don't vote for Hitler, Mussolini might win and do such and such. If I do not vote for Hiro Hito, I am just throwing my vote away so I am voting Hiro Hito. If I vote for Winston Churchill, I am throwing my vote away because all of Japan is voting Hiro Hito. Is this not similar to what was once called a lynch mob? A mindless hoard doing wrong because everyone did wrong last time around? Not a perfect analogy but I can look my kid straight in the eye after I vote Green Jill Stein.

 

One last try. It is 1770, a very few of the Philly and Massachusetts friends, neighbors and family are talking about cutting King George loose, not being allegiant to England anymore. The majority are still supporting England and King George, but a tiny minority are disenchanted. Are you going to stick with the big crowd because you are an insecure and unthoughtful type, or are you independent minded and fearless? Bush and Romney, the Republicans and Democrats are England, are the French Aristocracy. They no longer are very American. People who put dollars and foreign national corporations in front of the country are mercenaries, crony capitalists for hire. Consider Bush, Obama and Romney as traitors to the ideals of America. What is so difficult about that? Or go to work for Fox News and pontificate about useless drivel.

 

We will never know anything better than a suck a$$ kleptocratic duopoly if people think their "unwasted" duopoly votes are doing anything other than being the core of the problem.

Torturer In Chief 2012; Mitt Caligula or Barack Nero?

By Tracy Turner

 

 

  [[nero]] 

 

Numerous articles have been written about modern America as a Duopoly, Corporatocracy, Oligarchy, Fascist State, Surveillance State and/or full-blown Police State. Perhaps a simpler mental concept is big game hunters, aka trophy hunters. People who are driven to needing the bragging rights: I killed Saddam. Look at the video clips of Hillary talking about the death of Muammar Gaddafi. It is easy to imagine the Presidents of Exxon Mobile talking about which oil fields they are pumping oil out of in Iraq as if they just shot a Kodiak Bear. Washington is trophy hunter territory.

   

It may be too late now, but maybe starting early in 2016, we all need to adopt Red and Blue bumper stickers starting Jan. 1, red "Nero" and blue "Caligula" bumper stickers to wake people up? To wake up a few people, maybe also some red "Hitler" and blue "Hiro Hito" bumper stickers might get the point across, the US has become one of those hollow, armed to the teeth, torture dissidents Empires intent on empire building and oppressing all who speak ill of the empire. Who are the most outspoken vocal critics of our empire? Julian Assad, Ahmadinejad and Bradley Manning http://rt.com/usa/news/whistle-kiriakou-torture-case-818/ .

 

Occupy vocally criticized Nero Caligula Mussolini Hitler Stalin Bush and Obama, the Police State retaliated by torturing http://tinyurl.com/9zp3ccu Occupy. The torturers, police states that rule by threat, fear and intimidation to maintain a status quo of empire building are all the shortest lived of all so-called empires. Warlike cultures that paraded their conquests into the amphitheater (or plasma TV) to egotistically preen and crow (Nero, Caesar, Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Bush, Cheney, Obama) had empires that crumbled to dust. Hiro Hito's people were in denial. Nero and Caesar's people did not speak out against torture and empire building, or they would be crucified.

 

The past few weeks MSNBC have been running ads touting MSNBC as the face of "Democracy", with still photos of Ed and Rachel as the faces of "Democracy". If this is so, then the corporate logos of Bill Gates' monopoly, Microsoft and the General Electric logo are the faces of human torture and empire building. Ezra Klein is the new torture and empire building and war spokesperson. Ezra Klein is apparently the face of the seamless transition from Bush torture to Obama torture, possibly the seamless transition of Obama torture into Romney torture. MSNBC is the face of http://tinyurl.com/9a2dh99 something other than democracy, perhaps the face" or rather the enabler of Oligarchy.

 

The case of David Hicks http://tinyurl.com/94llwk2 brings up the complicity of the CIA, the military, the Presidency (Bush/Cheney, Obama/Biden), the Psychiatric "profession" and Big Pharma as co-conspirators in human torture. Both David Hicks and the witnesses http://tinyurl.com/9sft4fl who back Hick's claims of being drug-tortured in Guantanamo contradict the Congressional whitewash that said drug torture is not happening in Guantanamo. Congress determining that drug torturing is not happening in Guantanamo is just more propaganda for Fox News, CNN and MSNBC, the face of torture-democracy. The US has other clandestine torture chambers in Turkey and elsewhere, it is easy to extrapolate that David Hicks drug-tortures occur in these classified concentration camps.

 

The US torture-based empire, via Citizens United, is a bought dictatorship. Rather than seizing Washington DC's highest office with guns, multinationals seize the oval office with the blood money of war via Citizens United. Propagandists like GE/Microsoft now tout their info-propaganda networks as the "face of democracy" while ignoring the secret gulags with drug torture.   This article on Guantanamo drug torture references the military-torture complex referencing project MK-Ultra http://tinyurl.com/9co727g .

 

The face of Democracy is not corrupt commerce-news, bribed, concubinal government fixtures and Citizens United filth. Democracy is not http://www.ask.com/wiki/Project_ARTICHOKE project Artichoke and Kathleen Sullivan's torture under Project MK Ultra http://tinyurl.com/9yaj2zz . If you want to know why Occupy went from gaining strength to losing strength, study the CIA http://www.ask.com/wiki/Operation_CHAOS Operation Chaos.

 

Bush/Cheney, Obama/Biden and Romney/Ryan seek to create great with the small, insignificant, deceiving minds they have surrounded themselves with and with continuous martial law.

 

Perhaps we can have a third world war and enact our next Operation http://www.ask.com/wiki/Operation_Paperclip Paperclip? Brand-name recognition brand Obama vs brand Romney, you cannot buy that, unless you are a large multinational. If Barack is a one term President, it lowers Michele's and his daughter's chances of running for President.

 

The Internet is filled with web pages on torture, Duopoly, corporate corruption, Citizens United, Oligarchy, Plutarchy, empire building, Police State and the like. Bush, Cheney, Rove and Obama, Hillary et al are all compared to Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini all over the Internet.

 

Every 14-15 months, Congress re-visits Internet censorship under acronyms like PIPA, SOPA, CISPA and now the corporations are bypassing Congress with TPP intellectual property and Internet IP addressing laws.

 

In downtown Los Angeles in the financial district, the skyscraper banks are all-glass on the ground floor. All the big brokerages are built to look open, spacious and with bright light inside -- facades that hide the built in armament to keep rioters and looters out of the buildings. Post 9/11, the private security companies of the banks, stock exchange buildings and brokerages have gone para-military. Electronic steel trap doors in the bank ceilings and walls and black jack booted storm troopers are the face of democracy in America, Ezra Klein.

 

Are Ed, Rachel, and Ezra et al part of the Obama re-election campaign? Whenever Obama is not around to defend his torture empire, they act as his surrogates. The faces of torture empire democracy, the cheerleaders of the torturer in chief and his pseudo-competition. Each is a Caesar ready to perpetuate any and all barbarism to maintain power: kidnappings, wars, depleted uranium war/DIME, secret gulags, water boarding, taserings, drug tortures, etc.

 

To show how corrupt NATO/OTAN is, why hasn't the Australian government has not spoken out about David Hick's drug torture? www.youtube.com/watch?v=hakgWVE8n9I Circa 2012, which violator of the Geneva Convention are you voting for as the face of democracy? Rachel, Ed and Ezra all love Barack Dope-Torturer Obama. If he loses, there will be a seamless transfer of the Bush/Obama dope-torture under the new Torturer in Chief, Mitt Caligula.

 

Many are trying to figure out which candidate will support Israel's gulags, Israel's use of DIME in Gaza, Mitt Caligula or Barack Nero?

 

US Torture nicknamed Democracy? Freedom, aka Secret Gulags filled with drug torture victims? Liberty and Justice for those with Citizens United funds, Brutal Paramilitary police oppression for Veterans, Occupiers, etc.? Maddow and Klein damn near rah-rahing like cheerleaders with pompoms for Obama, our Secret Gulag-warden and torturer-in-chief?

 

Mitt and Barack are as big of weevils as Rove, Hillary, Cheney, Bush, Condi Rice, the CEO's of Monsanto, Boeing, Blackwater, etc. Nero and Caligula would have admired the billion hollowpoint bullets and drug torture as means to freedom and democracy.

 

The 2012 version of Caligula and Nero act like they took some of the pharmaceutical torture dope. A vote for either is a vote for Torture Empire. How does that work for you, a democracy with secret torture gulags (unlike Israel with their free-range semi-cageless gulags)?

 

Potus - the guy who's staff screams about Putin's incarceration of three girls while Guantanamo's sibling secret gulags are filled with the dissidents of the world, all drug-tortured in the name of freedom, democracy, liberty.

David Hicks http://tinyurl.com/94llwk2 justice, rewiring the dissidents brain with drugs in America's national interest. POTUS is the guy who hypocritically talks human rights with China and Russia while the CIA does Artichoke, CHAOS, MK ULTRA, etc. POTUS is the guy who vocalizes the word democracy while setting up puppet governments with nation-destroyer depleted uranium weapons.

 

Caligula and Nero spending $4-5 Trillion per year on surveillance cameras, secret police, kidnap and torture, NDAA, etc. and treating America as if it were Guantanamo Camp XRAY is going to implode.

 

Ed, Rachel and Ezra on MSNBC keep giving lip service to how wonderful empire democracy is" But none of them has the freedom and democracy to do exposes on Guantanamo, on torture drugs, on lung cancer in Navajo Uranium miners (there goes the Romney Obama clean nuclear lie), etc. Ed, Rachel and Ezra are pseudo-democrats. They give lip service to democracy while multinationals bankroll Obama and Romney and bankroll MSNBC. They, the bought nd paid for news media, are the face of democracy? Bill Gates, the software monopoly and thermonuclear war, toxic waste General Electric are the face of democracy? Caligula and Nero in a 49%-49% election are the face of democracy?

 

Washington was and is the era of the Big Game Hunters who mounted Tiger, Elephant and Rhino heads over the fireplace mantle, aka trophy hunters. The Romans liked to parade captured, conquested rulers as trophies to show off to their public. Clinton had Slobodan Milosevic as his Water buffalo head mounted over the fireplace. George HW and George W. Bush both had Saddam Hussein as their big game trophy. Obama has Bin Laden's head mounted above his fireplace and even speaks of Bin Laden as if he was a particularly difficult shot in wind at 1000 yd with an old Sharpe's Buffalo gun.

 

Even the sycophants, Hillary Clinton, Condi Rice, Karl Rove, Madeline Albright, Ashcroft and Dick Cheney, etc., talk as if they narrowly averted their own death on safari but through luck, skill, cunning and bravery added another oil sheikdom to the empire, the wall of big taxidermy heads where once were other sovereign nations. Washington are all trophy hunters for the Corporatocracy, delivering the severed heads of militarily thrashed countries whose natural resources are in America's national interest. The leaders are held up like the severed head from a lion while the corporations financially occupy one more liberated country. Nero and Caligula showing off their most recent conquered King reduced to a slave in rags. The news will call it nation building, delivering freedom and democracy. What kind of drugs did they inject into Saddam?

Clean Nuke Austerity Obama vs. Clean Nuke Austerity Romney

By Tracy Turner

 

 

[[1776]]

      

Some people believe Bush was anti-environment and therefore Obama is "green". That voting democrat makes you "green". In place of Obama or Romney as the magic bullet of economic recovery, America will simply have a few more billionaires and much more toxic waste. Each new Romney or Obama billionaire will represent a stockpile of nuclear, chemical, gas fracking, industrial chemical and petroleum HAZMAT sites. Just four years of either Romney or Obama will curse most of the country with super-pollution and swell the ranks of the poverty class with newcomers.

 

Millions of American's stew over jobs and dollars. Some stew over government and taxes. Others over homes, mortgages, the stock market and retirement or savings dwindlings. The news media popularizes these distractions.

 

The popular myth of picking the least evil Presidential contender or party misses the boat entirely. Our Declaration of Independence stated, "all men are created equal and there are certain unalienable rights that governments should never violate". But the military-corporate complex and politicians do not recognize the rights of those they stop-loss, those they kill with military-industrial pollution. The multinational corporations claim the US Constitution gives them rights that are now denied to all regular citizens.

 

Congress and Obama put NDAA into place, denying due process of law. Americans made several near fatal mistakes: Bush is only denying the rights of Muslim Americans; I do not care, as I am Christian. Obama and the Frackers are poisoning Ohio and Pennsylvania people's water, I do not care I am from New York. Bush and Obama gave uranium-mining permits to companies poisoning the Navajo, I do not care, and I am Californian. What Americans fail to understand is when Congress, the President and Multinationals violate some of our rights, they are violating * All American's Rights *. You, the reader" when Navajo people in the four-corner states die from uranium-tainted drinking water, your right to clean drinking water went into the sewer with the right to clean drinking water of the Navajo. If the right is violated for them, it is also your right that will be or even already is being violated. As the military-corporate complex poisons the water wells of the Navajo-Americans, what are they also doing or planning to do to your water?

Google: Ohio Strontium 90. Google Ohio Uranium Piketon. Google Fernald Ohio. Too bad everybody in Ohio does not vote Green and ask the Green party for Superfund Cleanup money to get rid of the pollution. Too bad Ohio does not kick the water-polluting frackers out of the state. If you still think ghost town Ohio is far fetched, read http://freepress.org/Backup/UnixBackup/pubhtml/c-pro/wassvill.html here.

 

It is too bad swing states were not states that abandoned Republican and Democrat alike (vote Green or Libertarian). Duopoly votes lead to New Jersey having 109 hazardous waste sites, followed by California with 96 sites. Republicans and Democrats alike are environmental anarchists.

 

The bottom line is both Democrats and Republics use the following buzzwords to justify any and all pollution: National Security Energy Policy and Stable Economic Structure. Long term it will create cancer clustes, areas in the US rich in tumors.

 

 

Google the name of your state and one word or term at a time: plutonium pollution, uranium pollution, petroleum well pollution, oil spill, fracking chemicals pollution, overloaded with nuclear waste, fracking water pollution, uranium tailings, Atrazine ground water, PCB pollution, etc., etc. If you Google your state and the words or terms above, one term or word per search, you will see a pattern. If you live near a state border with another state, Google the state next to yours.

 

A pattern quickly emerges; corporate profit comes before human health and the long-term best interest of America. Voting Romney or Obama will result in 596 fracking fluid chemicals ending up in your drinking water for the short-term benefits of corporations that will turn Pennsylvaina and Ohio long term into a ghost towns.  Homeowners who lease to gas frackers will devalue their homes and neighborhoods into the toxic sludge under a junkyard.

 

In Huntington Beach, California, they built houses on top of capped oil wells. People have crude oil tar oozing from the walls of their houses and garages. In Bakersfield, people drink traces of pollution plume from the Kern River, which had 3-4 Uranium mines operating in the late 1950's   - early 1960's. The people who drink the water from the Uranium mine plumes do not even know Uranium was mined upstream from them.

 

Romney and Obama are criss-crossing Ohio seeking votes. Both will have administrations that approve of any and all fracking fluids injected below the water table. Ohio with it's 500+ gas wells and new gas wells going in every week will one day be the most toxic state in the union, with no farms, no water, no fish and few residents. Ohio is today a swing state, and tomorrow one of the most polluted toxic wastes dumps worldwide.

 

This map of Appalachia http://tinyurl.com/9nxtwrt courtesy of http://ilovemountains.org/ shows how much of Appalachia has been turned from a place of nature and clean water into a place of nickel, lead, mercury and cadmium poisoning. Clean coal is actually nickel, lead, mercury, selenium and cadmium-rich.

 

The politicians dance from one swing state to the next, the whole time ignoring the poisoning deaths of the voters they wish to swoon.

 

  These are the environmental swing states, the states which are reaching or have gone way past an environmental tipping point: Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina and Georgia are turning into areas that water pollution is going to overwhelm any and all water filters. This six-state area was a source of clean water for other states downstream. In the future, this 10-12 state area will be devoid of water for drinking, bathing and farming, via "clean coal".

 

This photobucket map http://tinyurl.com/8zw3g9v shows how much of the US has been injected with the 596-chemical witches brew of the fracking industry. What America does not have is the infrastructure resources and energy reserves to filter all of the tainted water from fracking. The fracking map http://tinyurl.com/8zw3g9v shows an area that supplies drinking water too much of the country.

 

Most of the blogs talk about how valuable to gas is to the economy, but fail to point out you cannot drink gas when thirsty, or bath in gas when you want to take a shower. You cannot boil a pot of rice in gas or 596 fracking chemicals; the rice requires clean, fresh water.

 

According to http://tinyurl.com/8oak5tl, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Kentucky, Maryland, Indiana, Michigan, West Virginia, Georgia and North Carolina are the ten most polluted states, with Ohio the most polluted of the ten. These ten states are polluted from power plants burning "clean coal', fuel oil and natural gas. The incidences of heart disease, heart attacks, emphysemas, etc., are higher in these ten states than in the rest of the country based on burning fossil fuels for electricity. Americans have been brainwashed into thinking they can live without a heart and lungs, that the country's electricity somehow trumps the heart beating in your chest. The National economy is more important than the air in your lungs, just ask any Fracking Democrat or Fracking Republican.

National security comes first, electricity is national security, electricity is jobs, electricity is more important than drinking water in Appalachia or elsewhere. How can people in the ten most polluted states in America vote Republican or Democrat? It is like New Yorkers voting for Mayor Mike Fracking Bloomberg and expecting clean water in the future.

Neither Presidential candidate has a clue what to do with nuclear waste, uranium tailings or depleted uranium casks (all 56,000 DU casks nationwide). Obama's home state, Illinois has enough nuclear waste to make the Fukushima disaster look like a party-popper. Both Romney and Obama say the words clean nuclear, clear lies that deny the 56,000 rusting casks of DUF6.

There are other less known "swing states", swing in the sense that they should vote green or libertarian, stop voting fro Fracking, Nuking, Mountaintop Removal Mining Democrats and Republicans.

Colorado is supposedly a Romney State. If I lived in Colorado, I would vote green, simply because: Google Colorado Uranium tailings, then Google Colorado Uranium mining plumes, then do the same in Google images. To this writer's way of thinking, the four-corners states are the swing states: Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico.

39 states have both high and low level radioactive waste sites; it is these states that should be abandoning the DemoPublican duopoly in droves of voters.

The coal industry has promised us 200 years of clean coal on TV, delivered us the ten most polluted states in the country * plus * the six states with the most water pollution from the mining, aka mountaintop removals.

ANGA keeps promising us 100 years of clean gas and has pumped 596 chemicals into the ground of more than half the states in the lower 48. There are numerous analysts saying the shale gas is less than predicted, that the predictions were to generate excitement and justify using the 596-fracking chemicals.

This article is about Uranium miners and lung cancer http://journal.publications.chestnet.org/article.aspx?articleid=1053870. This David Bradbury video is about Australian uranium miners and cancer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=774sqs34VCM. One of the biggest hazards for anyone around uranium is exposure to radon gas and potential lung cancer.

50% or more of America is now using natural gas inside of buildings with a risk of being exposed to radon. The government, the gas companies, the oil companies keep downplaying the risks as new billionaire after new billionaire is crated selling natural gas. Gas is a fossil fuel that creates the same greenhouse gases associated with global warming as oil. The big push to burn huge quantities of shale gas and the lack of radon safety studies is typical of the rights of the corporate class coming before our rights.

"Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness". But what we have is every form of corporate poison known to modern humans being stockpiled, dumped, irradiated, injected, sprayed on crops, etc. The GMO foods deal in California, in America is GMO shoved down our collective throats. You have the right to not eat GMO, just stop eating?

When Veterans for Peace were beaten in Chicago at the NATO summit, everyone in America, every last man, woman and child, was loosing their right to Peaceful Assembly and redress of grievances with the government. Those who think only the Veterans had their rights abused do not realize the event did not happen in a foreign country to a Zimbabwean" When the rights of one American, anywhere are violated, all of us are having our rights violated.

American's seem to have developed Stockholm Syndrome, where they have bonded to their government, news media and corporate captors. When the rights of one of us are violated" A cadre of police use Rubber Bullets, Batons, Tear Gas, Pepper Spray and overly tightened (for torture) plastic manacles on a group of Occupiers. I do not care, I am a Tea Partier. I do not care, I am black. I do not care, I am a Republican. Although the logic is barely discernible, the violated rights of the Occupiers supposedly once belonged to the Tea Partier, the Black and the Republican. They do not get that by being mute about the * perceived * rights of * others *, they actually have forfeited their very own rights, which their inaction have turned into * imaginary rights that no longer exist in reality*. Silence is the key to having imaginary rights you cannot claim in reality.

For the many who have forgotten, a summary of the bill of rights:

1

Freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition.

2

Right to keep and bear arms in order to maintain a well regulated militia.

3

No quartering of soldiers.

4

Freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures.

5

Right to due process of law, freedom from self-incrimination, double jeopardy.

6

Rights of accused persons, e.g., right to a speedy and public trial.

7

Right of trial by jury in civil cases.

8

Freedom from excessive bail, cruel and unusual punishments.

9

Other rights of the people.

10

Powers reserved to the states.

 

Link to the text of the US Declaration of Independence (which by the way contains a right of revolution):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Declaration_of_Independence

In a democracy, people would have turned their dogs on the police beating the Occupiers. But instead, the populace at large quartered the King's Redcoats.

Unchallenged by us, the corporation's politicians (they are not our politicians, they are bought and paid for by the multinationals) parrot what they are told to say, like both Obama and Romney parroting the meaningless dribble clean nuclear.

Google X-749A, X-735, X-120/PK Landfill Areas plumes. Google Paducah plume, Oak Ridge Plume, Rocky Mountain plume, Piketon, Ohio plume. The government won the cold war by adding Tritium, Uranium, Plutonium, Strontium 90, Technetium 99, etc. to groundwater and rivers. What Romney and Obama refer to as clean nuclear are Cesium 137 and other isotopes in domestic water supplies. The energy companies hide and deny their pollution and pay the Obama's and Romney's of this world to deny the cancers as well. Life, liberty and pursuit of happiness do not exist in Piketon Ohio as it exists in a Banana Plantation in Honduras. The Honduran farmers are not eating and drinking Cesium 137 and Strontium 90 like people from Ohio do. But Romney and Obama are criss-crossing Ohio, letting Ohioans know how valuable they all are. But underneath the facade Ohioans can damn well glow in the dark and drink radionuclides, the nuke energy industry gives more to both party's campaigns.

Obama and Romney's proposed clean nuclear energy equals more radionuclides in all the usual places. 39 states are buried up to their collective necks in nuclear waste. Much of the $16 trillion deficit is war on terror, meanwhile we are chocking on nuke waste. This Huntington News article is but the small tip of a very large iceberg: http://www.huntingtonnews.net/38765.

What Are GMO? What Is A GMO? What Foods Are Genetically Modified? California Prop 37 Decoded

By Tracy Turner

  [[prop37]]

What Are GMO? What Is A GMO? A genetically modified organism (GMO) or genetically engineered organism (GEO) is an organism whose genetic material has been altered... 

If you are Californian, did you see the Big Pesticide Companies run their anti-prop-37 ads on TV? Some truth, now:


Henry Miller (former shill for DDT Insecticide and Big Tobacco), Sherry Franklin and Ted Sheely: Paid Shills for Monsanto (Dioxin, PCB's & Agent Orange), Dow (Agent Orange and Agent Blue - Arsenic), Bayer (CCD - Colony Collapse Disorder of Bees), BASF (GMO Potatoes), DuPont (Dupont basically has poisoned all continents worldwide with pesticide residues) and Syngenta (google Atrazine poison in well water and the name of your state, territory or province). As Doctors who went through med school (and a farmer), can you spell LD50? This is following the money behind the TV ads, Six- Big Pesticide spewers, Brothers in Poisons and their paid shills"

What Foods (or Fibers) Are Most Commonly Genetically Modified? rBGH Milk, Tomatoes, Papaya, Rice, Potatoes, Corn, Soy, Canola Oil, Cottonseed Oil, Radicchio, Squash and Salmon. That is correct; Aquabounty sells Salmon and Eel that is Genetically Engineered, aka Frankenfish. Most cooking oils (including those used in freezer entrees, canned food, etc.) are GMO cooking oils.

Another example of a very common GMO is Corn, Corn Starch, Corn Meal, Corn Oil, etc., where the Corn has had foreign bacteria DNA spliced into the Corn (aka Monsanto BT Corn). Every time you eat this corn or the derivative Modified Corn Starch, you are also eating Bacteria that produce insecticide in your stomach. Some brands of Yogurt, Chili Beans, PowerBars, etc. have GMO Corn Syrup and/or GMO Corn Starch.

This law would change one simple thing -- if a label now says Soy Oil on a freezer entrée, for example, after Prop 37 takes effect that label would say GMO Soy Oil. It gives you a chance at avoiding GMO foods and having better health. The no on 37 TV ads are scare tactics paid for by pesticide companies who also Genetically Engineer Franken Corn, Franken Milk and Franken Salmon.

Other examples are Soy and soy derivative products with weed-killer resistant algae spliced to the soy. Yogurt made out of Milk with rBGH bacteria injected into the cow, when you eat said yogurt you are also eating a man-made bacteria.

rBGH Milk and GMO corn contributes to obesity and diabetes. This biotech article http://tinyurl.com/cth6rou explains the use of pesticide addiction to make farming cost more for the farmer and to make the farmer reliant upon Monsanto BASF Bayer Dow DuPont & Syngenta pesticides and GMO crop seeds.

Roundup is thought to destroy testosterone and lead to male infertility; farmers in conjunction with Monsanto's Roundup Ready food and fiber crop seeds use Roundup.

Many companies financing No on Prop 37 are pesticide companies and Genetically Modified crop seed companies. MONSANTO COMPANY $7,100,500.00.   Monsanto was and still is a pesticide company, which also sells BT crop seeds; Monsanto foods you end up eating contain pesticides and man-made genetics.

E.I. DUPONT DE NEMOURS & CO. $4,900,000.00 is also a pesticide company who genetically alters foods. BASF PLANT SCIENCE $2,000,000.00 BASF's pesticide division supplies agricultural products and chemicals. DOW AGROSCIENCES LLC $2,000,000.00 Dow is another pesticide company that makes genetically modified frankenfoods. CONAGRA FOODS -- $1,076,700.00.   SYNGENTA CORPORATION $1,000,000.00, Syngenta is another biotech/pesticide company. Bayer Crop Science $381,602 Bayer is killing the Earth's bees. These companies are pesticide GMO crop companies who do not want you to know what is in your food. Does that sound right to you?


  Rats eating Monsanto GMO corn died, had tumors, went sterile and had stillborn babies from said corn. Monsanto, BASF, Bayer CropScience, Dow AgroSciences LLC, DuPont & Syngenta all produce pesticide-laced crops that end up in your pantry and on your plate. These pesticide companies are paying for the prop 37 no ads on TV, which is why we all need to vote yes.

Learn about Monsanto plant AIDS http://www.naturalnews.com/032441_pesticide_AIDS.html here.

The genetically modified bacteria that Monsanto put into your stomach, you read correctly, the digestive bacteria in your stomach has Monsanto Roundup Ready patented genes manufacturing Bacillus thuringensis toxin http://tinyurl.com/7fkxn6q. After Monsanto's genetically modified corn pollen blows as far as 15 miles in the wind and infects some poor organic corn farmers field, Monsanto will send its gene http://tinyurl.com/6a67ccf police by to see if the organic corn tests positive for Monsanto patented genes. Diametrically opposed opposite here: Monsanto BASF et al create GMO food crops which are pesticide junkies, 100% addicted to weed killer, insecticide and fungicide.

There is an excellent Greenpeace France article on BASF's GMO potatoes http://tinyurl.com/26erwy4 here. Monsanto, BASF, et al make tremendous short-term profits from selling pesticide-junkie GMO food seed, replete with the larger than normal amounts of pesticides and chemical fertilizer required to grow less food. Bayer scientists are not stupid, they know that no bees means no food, no food means mass human starvation. Monsanto BASF Bayer Dow DuPont and Syngenta sell soil death, global http://tinyurl.com/cbv8hcm desertification.

Follow the http://www.osgata.org/organic-farmers-file-appeal-against-monsanto OSGATA court case carefully.

The big six pesticide and GM seed companies are both human rights violators and http://tinyurl.com/c2dd3v7 natural born killers, 355,000 people a year die directly from their pesticides alone.

  • Monsanto's genetically engineered genes are famous for polluting the crops and seeds of Organic Farmers. Monsanto has engineered a technology called terminator seed; this technology has the potential to make entire strains of food go extinct http://occupy-monsanto.com/.
  • Recently, Brazilian Farmers won a $2.2 billion lawsuit against the monopoly Monsanto (15 June 2012).

 

  • 37 people died and more than 1,500 were permanently crippled in the United States after ingesting GMO L-Tryptophan diet supplement pills.

 

  • In a 2011 published study of human consumption of GM foods, scientists found that the genetic material inserted into GM soybeans transferred into bacteria living inside human intestines, stayed there, and continued to function.  
  • Farmers are filing lawsuits against Monsanto, lots of farmers: 5 million farmers sue Monsanto for 7. 7 billion Euros, Indian Government Files Biopiracy Lawsuit Against Monsanto, Brazilian Farmers Win $2 Billion Lawsuit Against Monsanto and US Organic Farmers File Appeal Against Monsanto 6 July 2012.

 

Genetically engineered food has been linked to stomach and digestive problems: http://www.anh-usa.org/genetically-engineered-food-alters-our-digestive-systems/.

 

Vote Yes On California Prop 37.

Stratocratic Venom Stings Self -- Military Pollution IV

By Tracy Turner

(Article changed on October 24, 2012 at 13:47)

[[barrel]]

 

There are several videos that give a sense of environmental racism at youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYc5vR-plYg and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34xDvxl2cSQ. Uranium is not mined in Palm Beach, Florida or Beverly Hills, California. It is mined in Africa, in the Aboriginal lands of Australia and in the four-corners area (Navajo Nation) area of the US. Making atom bombs mostly pollutes and cancers people of color and said pollution will be with them for infinity. For every one or ten atom bombs created in the US, a corresponding number of US, African and Australian water wells ends up with Uranium, Technitium, Americium and Strontium levels. Each Uranium fabrication or Plutonium trigger metalurgical laboratory ends up as an infinity room, so polluted the radioactivity levels are off of the scale and only robots may enter that room.

 

The military mostly recruits poorer people. Some find that statement offensive, but you do not see too many sons and daughters of Wallstreet Tycoons joining the Army. We do indeed have a poverty draft of military personnel who use Uranium weapons that were mined from the lands of poorer people of color. Our poverty draft then contaminates the poverty draftees with every nasty toxin known to humankind. Viet Nam veterans with agent-orange-syndrome or Gulf War Syndrome veterans are known as "strong military". But Leukemia victims are not "strong military". Poverty Draftees are not warned in advance about Uranium, PCB's and TCE's in drinking and bathwater.

 

This is the forth article in a series, articles one, two and three respectively are here: http://tiny.cc/fskimw and http://tiny.cc/lukimw and http://tiny.cc/lvkimw.

 

North Carolina pollution Camp Lejeune water contamination. From at least 1957 through 1987, Marines and their families at Lejeune drank and bathed in water contaminated with toxins at concentrations 240 to 3400 times permitted by safety standards, and at least 850 former residents filed claims for nearly $4 billion from the military. The main chemicals involved were trichloroethylene (TCE), a degreaser, perchloroethylene (PCE), a dry cleaning solvent, and benzene; however, more than 70 chemicals have been identified as contaminants at Lejeune.

A 1974 base order required safe disposal of solvents and warned that improper handling could cause drinking water contamination. Yet solvents were dumped or buried near base wells for years.

 

The base's wells were shut off in the mid-1980s, but were placed back online in violation of the law. In 1982, Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) were found to be in Camp Lejeune's drinking water supply. VOC contamination of groundwater can cause birth defects and other ill health effects in pregnant and nursing mothers. This information was not made public for nearly two decades when the government attempted to identify those who may have been exposed.

 

An advocacy group called The Few, The Proud, and The Forgotten was created to inform possible victims of the contamination at Lejeune. The group's website includes an introduction with some basic information about the contamination at Lejeune, including that many health problems various types of cancer, leukemia, miscarriages and birth defects, have been noted in people who drank the contaminated water. According to the site, numerous base housing areas were affected by the contamination, including Tarawa Terrace, Midway Park, Berkeley Manor, Paradise Point, Hadnot Point, Hospital Point, and Watkins Village.

 

On March 8, 2010, Paul Buckley of Hanover, Massachusetts, received a 100%, service connected disability from the Department of Veterans Affairs for cancer (Multiple Myeloma), which was linked to toxic water exposure on Camp Lejeune. This is believed to be the first time the government has admitted the link between the contamination and illnesses.

 

In 2007, Jerry Ensminger, a retired Marine master sergeant, found a document dated 1981 that described a radioactive dumpsite near a rifle range at the camp. According to the report, the waste was laced with strontium-90, an isotope known to cause cancer and leukemia. According to Camp Lejeune's installation restoration program manager, base officials learned in 2004 about the 1981 document. Ensminger served in the Marine Corps for 24 and a half years, and lived for part of that time at Camp Lejeune. In 1985 his 9-year-old daughter, Janey, died of cancer.

 

On July 6, 2009, Laura Jones filed suit against the US government over the contaminated water at the base. Jones previously lived at the base where her husband, a Marine, was stationed. Jones has lymphoma and now lives in Iowa.

 

Twenty former residents of Camp Lejeune--all men who lived there during the 1960s and the 1980s--have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Due to the relatively low rate of male breast cancer in the United States, pollution at Camp Lejeune is presumed to be a major contributor to these illnesses.

 

In April 2009, the United States Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry withdrew a 1997 public health assessment at Camp Lejeune that denied any connection between the toxins and illness.

As many as 500,000 people may have been exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune over a period of 30 years. Although no official studies have definitively connected the contamination with illness, former residents of Camp Lejeune suffer from a high rate of cancer and other diseases. Children from the Marines have also shown signs of brain cancer and leukemia.

 

Janey Ensminger Act

 

On 18 July 2012 the US Senate passed a bill, called the Janey Ensminger Act in honor of Jerry Ensminger and his daughter Janey who died of cancer at age 9, authorizing medical care to military and family members who had resided at the base between 1957 and 1987 and developed conditions linked to the water contamination. The measure applies to up to 750,000 people. The House approved the bill on 31 July 2012. President Obama signed the bill into law on 6 August 2012.

 

The bill applies to 15 specific ailments believed to be linked to the contamination, including cancer of the esophagus, lung, breast, bladder or kidney; leukemia; multiple myeloma; myleodysplasic syndromes; renal toxicity; hepatic steatosis; female infertility; miscarriage; scleroderma; and/or neurobehavioral effects or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The Department of Veterans Affairs is assigned by the bill to provide the medical care. To fund the medical care, the bill extends higher fees for VA home loan guarantees to 1 October 2017.

 

Marine Corp Air Station Cherry Point

 

Commissioned in 1942 as Cunningham Field, Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point is located in southeastern Craven County, North Carolina. The installation covers approximately 13,164 acres on a peninsula north of the Core and Bogue Sounds and south of the Neuse River. The Air Station's primary mission is to maintain and operate support facilities and services to the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing, Naval Aviation Depot, and Naval Hospital.

 

Environmental impacts at the site stem from past waste disposal and storage practices of industrial chemicals, waste, and fuels. These past practices at MCAS Cherry Point have resulted in several contaminated ground water plumes and soil contamination from numerous smaller waste disposal units.

 

Threats and Contaminants:

 

Soil, sediment, ground water, and surface water have been contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and metals have been detected in both surface and subsurface soil.

 

Ohio Feed Materials Production Center (USDOE) Since the early 1950s, FMPC has manufactured metallic uranium fuel elements, target cores, and other uranium products for use in production reactors originally operated for the Atomic Energy Commission and now for USDOE. These processes have generated large quantities of wastes, including low-level radioactive wastes, mixed hazardous and radioactive wastes, waste oils, waste solvents, and significant amounts of fly ash. Among the materials on-site are uranium, mercury, barium, thorium, tetrachloroethylene, arsenic, and PCBs.

Disposal practices and operational deficiencies have resulted in contamination of soil, ground water, surface water, and air. Major sources of contaminants include the Production Area, six waste pits, three waste storage silos, a storm sewer outfall to Paddy's Run (an intermittent stream), and an effluent line discharging into the Great Miami River. Uranium contaminates the Buried Valley Aquifer, the sole source of drinking water for FMPC workers and most area residents, according to routine monitoring conducted in 1984 by FMPC. The contamination has resulted in closing of a downgradient private well. An estimated 1,100 FMPC employees obtain drinking water and 750 acres of land are irrigated by wells within 3 miles of FMPC.

In 1985, FMPC detected high concentrations of uranium, technetium-99, and hexavalent chromium in the effluent line discharging to the Great Miami River, which is used for recreational activities within 3 miles downstream. (italics mine - Uranium, Technetium-99 and Hexavalent Chromium are a witches brew of carcinogens).

Radon gas was detected in the atmosphere by on-site monitoring equipment in April 1986.

Mound Plant (USDOE) The Mound Plant encompasses 306 acres within the southern city limits of Miamisburg, Montgomery County, Ohio. Mound is bounded by an urbanized area to the north and east, rural/farmland to the south, and a railroad right-of-way to the west. Mound has operated since 1948 in support of U.S. weapons and energy programs, with an emphasis on small explosive components and nuclear technology. First operated by the Atomic Energy Commission, it is operated now by the U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE). The facility employs 2,200 people, most of whom reside in the nearby Miamisburg and Dayton areas.

Mound consists of two elevated areas divided by a small valley which runs in a northeast-southwest direction through the site. The major waste areas are on the south slope and valley of the northwest elevated area and include a landfill in which solvents, paints, and photoprocessing and plating bath solutions were deposited; several leach beds used to dispose of solutions containing radionuclides and/or explosive/pyrotechnic materials; and an area in which a solution contaminated with plutonium was spilled. The operating life and the quantity of wastes deposited are unknown for the majority of the other waste areas.

The Buried Valley Aquifer (BVA) underlies a portion of the valley area of the plant and is made up of relatively permeable outwash sand and gravel deposits. Miamisburg municipal wells are within 3 miles of the site and serve an estimated 17,000 people. There is some evidence indicating that tritium, plutonium, and volatile organic compounds contaminate ground water, and that plutonium contaminates surface water. A system of ditches, canals, and ponds carries surface water from the facility to the Great Miami River approximately 1 mile downstream. The river is used for recreational activities.

Rickenbacker Air National Guard Base occupies about 2,100 acres in an agricultural area in central Ohio. The facility is located 9 miles southeast of the city of Columbus and 0.5 mile east of the community of Lockbourne, in southern Franklin County and northern Pickaway County. Approximately 1,100 people are employed by the base. Beginning in 1942, the site was used for refueling operations by the U.S. Air Force. Base operations were transferred to the Ohio Air National Guard (OANG) in 1980. In 1984, approximately 1,600 acres were transferred to Rickenbacker Port Authority.

The current mission of the base is to provide airfield support for OANG and the Air Force Reserve. Activities include operation, maintenance, and repair of aircraft, vehicles, equipment, and utility systems. Also, the Aerial Spray Branch is responsible for pesticide spraying at other bases in the U.S.

The aquifer underlying the site supplies water to homes in the area, 150,000 people residing in the City of Columbus, and to nearby communities. In 1988, the City of Columbus proposed a Wellhead Protection Area to prevent the contamination of this major water source. Sampling at the site in 1988 and 1989,   found heavy metals and trichloroethylene (TCE) in the onsite monitoring wells. In addition, soils were found to contain significant levels of organics and pesticides that may migrate into the drinking water supply. An Installation Restoration Program (IRP) report, conducted by the Department of Defense (DOD), identified more than 20 sources of hazardous materials at the site. Eight sources have been evaluated.

The Drum Storage Area was used from 1984 to 1986 to store drums containing spent solvents, waste paint, sludge from oil-water separators, and spent batteries. TCE, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, mercury, and nickel were detected in ground water below this source, and polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were found in soils.

The Salvage Yard has been used since the 1950s for storage of scrap materials and pesticides. Lindane, 4.4'-DDD, and PAHs were found in soils.

The area near the Old Entomology Laboratory was used for cleaning pesticide spraying equipment and pesticide drum storage. In 1979, the laboratory was damaged by fire and pesticides were spilled. Subsequent sampling revealed 2,4,5- TP (Silvex) in ground water and 4,4'-DDD and 4,4'-DDE in soils. Although some pesticides were stored at the Old Entomology Laboratory, most were stored at the Pesticide Storage Building No. 412. A 1987 IRP report stated that approximately 855 gallons of pesticides were stored there.

Coal soaked in fuel oil was stored at the North and South Coal Piles, which had a total storage capacity of 10,000 tons. For 36 years, coal was used to fire the heating plant. Arsenic, cadmium, chromium, mercury, lead, and nickel were detected in the ground water underneath the source, and PAHs were found in the soil. The Underground Hazardous Waste Storage Area was used as a repository for waste oils, waste solvents, and other unspecified chemical substances generated at the site. No sampling data is available.

The Active Hazardous Waste Storage Area was used as a repository for waste oils, waste solvents, oil-water separator sludge, spent batteries, and waste oil. No analytical data for this source is available.

Wright-Patterson Airfield (Air Force) Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) is in southwestern Ohio northeast of Dayton in Greene and Montgomery Counties. The installation is composed of two air fields, Wright Field and Patterson Field, covering 8,174 acres. The base employs approximately 33,000 people, of whom about 8,000 presently live on the base.   Past Air Force activities in support of operational missions have resulted in creation of several unlined waste disposal areas throughout the base, including landfills, fire training areas, and coal storage piles.

From 1941 to at least 1973, the Industrial Shops and the Research and Development Laboratories disposed of more than 791 tons of waste on the base, including solvents, contaminated thinners, degreasing sludges, tetraethyllead sludge, and miscellaneous hazardous chemicals.   In 1985, the base, with the assistance of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA), found 1,1,1-trichloroethane, tetrachloroethylene, trichloroethylene, 1,2-dichloroethane, and manganese in on-base wells. The Miami River Valley Aquifer System, which is the predominant water source in the Dayton and WPAFB area, provides water to three municipal well fields within 3 miles that serve more than 375,000 people. The people working and living on the base are served by 16 base wells. Local surface waters are also potentially threatened by inactive waste sites on the base.

Oklahoma Tinker Air Force Base covers 4,277 acres adjacent to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma County, Oklahoma. The base is within the North Canadian River drainage basin and drains into Crutcho and Soldier Creeks.

Building 3001 is used for aircraft maintenance and jet engine rebuilding. Organic solvents, including trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene, and 1,2-dichloroethylene, were used for degreasing and aircraft maintenance. In the past, waste oils, solvents, paint sludges, and plating waste generated from maintenance activities were disposed in Industrial Waste Pits Numbers 1 and 2, located about 1 mile south of Soldier Creek and Building 3001.

Tests conducted by a contractor to the Air Force detected TCE in a water supply well located within Building 3001. The Air Force has taken this well out of service. The municipal water system serving 55,400 customers in Midwest City draws water from the contaminated aquifer within 3 miles of the base. The Air Force has detected heavy metals (Hexavalent Chromium, nickel, cadmium) in Soldier Creek at Douglas Boulevard.

Oregon Fremont National Forest/White King and Lucky Lass Uranium Mines (USDA, was AEC) The Fremont National Forest/White King and Lucky Lass Uranium Mines site is located approximately 18 miles northwest of Lakeview, Oregon. The White King Mine is located on U.S. Forest Service and private land and the Lucky Lass Mine is located entirely on Forest Service land.   The mines were operated from 1958 through 1961 and intermittently through 1964. The Atomic Energy Commission oversaw ore production from the mines. A total of 140 acres were disturbed by mining: 120 acres at White King Mine and 20 acres at Lucky Lass Mine.

 

Contaminant areas include stockpiled ore, overburden mixed with ore, and acid drainage waste water that has filled the pits created by the mining activities.   The primary hazards posed by the mine waste include gamma radiation exposure from radioactive constituents, emanation of radon gas, and environmental contamination by heavy metals and the radioactive constituents in surface and ground water. Surface water and sediments in Auger Creek and nearby wetlands have been contaminated by mining activities. The creek and surface water bodies downstream of the site are used as a source of recreational fishing.

 

Umatilla Army Depot (Lagoons)

 

Since 1941, Umatilla Army Depot Activity has occupied about 20,000 acres in northeastern Oregon 6 miles south of the Columbia River in Hermiston, Umatilla County. This NPL site consists of lagoons covering about 0.5 acre. They are contaminated with wastes from explosives as a result of past demilitarization and disposal operations. The major contaminants identified on the base include explosive-derived wastes (RDX, TNT, and nitrate), pesticides (DDT and lindane), organic solvents (tetrachloroethylene and trichloroethylene), and caustic brine. RDX and nitrates are present in ground water beneath the lagoons. This ground water contamination might affect public water supplies serving about 24 people.

 

Pennsylvania Naval Air Development Center (8 Waste Areas) The Naval Air Development Center (NADC) covers 734 acres in Warminster Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The center also conducts studies in antisubmarine warfare systems and software development.  

 

Waste-generating activities include aircraft maintenance and repair, pest control, fire-fighting training, machine and plating shop operations, spray painting, and various materials research and testing activities in NADC laboratories. Wastes generated include paints, solvents, industrial waste water treatment sludge, and waste oils. Eight waste areas covering more than 2 acres are included in this NPL site.   Navy contractors detected 1,1-dichloroethane, chromium, and nickel in ground water on the base. No significant contamination was detected in nearby surface water. The waste areas potentially affect the Stockton Formation aquifer, which provides water for over 100,000 persons within 3 miles of the site. Local surface water bodies are used for recreational and industrial purposes.

Middletown Air Field The Middletown Air Field covers 36 acres in Middletown, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. The site is adjacent to the Susquehanna River, and the Swatara Creek is located nearby. Until 1966, the Federal Government owned the site and operated it as Olmsted Air Force Base. Various Air Force operations resulted in solvents and other wastes being disposed of on the site. The current owner, the State of Pennsylvania, operates the site as Harrisburg International Airport. The site includes the airport properties, the Mead Heights area, and several industrial properties.   Dichlorobenzene, trichloroethylene, and tetrachloroethylene are present in ground water at the site, according to analyses conducted by the State and EPA. The State, EPA, and the Air Force are currently studying the site. As part of its effort, the Air Force has completed a search of records for information on past disposal activities at Olmsted Air Force Base. In 1984, the State removed all sludge and liquids in Building 267, closed the fire training pits, and removed all materials from the location.

 

Letterkenny Army Depot (PDO Area) The Letterkenny Army Depot is located 2 miles north of Chambersburg, Franklin County, Pennsylvania. It was established in 1942 as an ammunition storage facility. From 1947 to the present, operations have included the maintenance, overhaul, and rebuilding of wheeled and tracked vehicles and missiles. These operations have employed large quantities of chlorinated organic solvents and cleaning agents. Some wastes from these operations have been stored and disposed of in the Property Disposal Office (PDO) Area by landfilling and spreading on the ground. This NPL site consists of the PDO Area, which covers approximately 250 acres.  

 

Ground water beneath the PDO Area and the surface waters draining the area are contaminated with chlorinated organic chemicals, including chloroform, 1,1-dichloroethylene, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, and trichloroethylene, according to tests conducted by the Army. Letterkenny Army Depot is participating in the Installation Restoration Program (IRP), established in 1978. Under this program, the Department of Defense seeks to identify, investigate, and clean up contamination from hazardous materials. The Army has completed studies to determine sources of on-depot ground water contamination.

 

Letterkenny Army Depot (Southeast Area) The Letterkenny Army Depot is located 2 miles north of Chambersburg, Franklin County, Pennsylvania. It was established in 1942 as an ammunition storage facility. The operations have employed large quantities of chlorinated organic solvents and cleaning agents.

 

Ground water beneath the Southeast Industrial Area of the depot, as well as beneath an off-depot area of approximately 4,000 acres extending 2.5 miles to the east of the depot, is contaminated with chlorinated organic chemicals, including trichloroethylene and 1,1-dichloroethylene. Approximately 40 residential water wells have been contaminated.   Letterkenny Army Depot is participating in the Installation Restoration Program, established in 1978. Under this program, the Department of Defense seeks to identify, investigate, and clean up contamination from hazardous materials. The U.S. Army has completed studies to determine sources of on-depot ground water contamination, as well as a remedial investigation/feasibility study. The Army is currently supplying 16 residences with bottled water to replace contaminated wells.

 

Tobyhanna Army Depot Tobyhanna Army Depot covers 1,293 acres in Tobyhanna, Monroe County, in the Pocono Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania. Military operations started on the site in 1913. The facility assumed its present name in August 1962. The depot's primary mission is to provide maintenance and supply support to the Army. Metal refinishing, electronic fabrication, electroplating, and degreasing operations are conducted on-site.

 

All types of depot wastes, including plating wastes, paints, solvents, sewage treatment sludge, and solid wastes, were disposed of on-site prior to 1975. IRP investigations conducted in the southeastern section in 1981 and 1986 found trichloroethylene (TCE) in on-site monitoring wells, and 1,2-dichloroethylene, TCE, and tetrachloroethylene in on-site and off-site water supply wells. An estimated 4,300 people obtain drinking water from depot and private wells within 3 miles of hazardous substances on the depot.

Puerto Rico Naval Security Group Activity Naval Security Group Activity is a communications station on the north coast of Puerto Rico approximately 11 miles west of San Juan, adjacent to the Village of Sabana Seca, Municipality of Toa Baja. The station encompasses over 2,200 acres divided into the North and South Tracts. The San Pedro Marsh, a large coastal wetland, is within 1,000 feet of both tracts.   From the early 1950s through 1970, the station's Public Works Department deposited all waste generated at the station in various areas on the South Tract. Materials disposed of included paints, solvents, waste oil, and battery acid. In addition, part of the South Tract served as the Pest Control Shop from the mid-1950s through 1979. During this time, various pesticides, including DDT, lindane, chlordane, 2,4-D, and sevin, were spilled in and around the shop building. Pesticides were mixed and application equipment cleaned in a sink outside the shop. The sink discharged directly to the ground.   Soil samples taken near the shop had elevated concentrations of arsenic, lead, and chlordane in tests conducted in 1984. Soil contaminants could migrate via surface water through a drainage ditch to the marsh during periods of rainfall. The contaminants could migrate to ground water through the fractured limestone bedrock, then to the marshy areas to the northwest and eventually into the sea. An estimated 47,000 persons living in and around the station use public wells within 3 miles of the site as a partial source of drinking water.   The Puerto Rican boa, designated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as an endangered species, has been sighted in numerous locations on the station. The boa is known to feed in the subtropical environment offered by the station. Surface water within 3 miles downstream of the shop is used for recreational fishing.

 

Atlantic Fleet Weapons Training Area - Vieques, Puerto Rico The Atlantic Fleet Weapons Training Area - Vieques, in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, includes certain areas of the island of Vieques, and nearby waters, that have become contaminated primarily by United States Department of Defense (DoD) activities.

 

Since World War II, portions of the island of Vieques have been used by the U.S. Navy, primarily, to conduct activities related to military training. The eastern end of Vieques was used for all aspects of naval gunfire training, including air-to-ground ordnance delivery and amphibious landings, as well as housing the main base of operations for these activities, Camp Garcia. Live ordnance was used for certain exercises. Site operations on the western end of Vieques consisted mainly of ammunition loading and storage, and vehicle and facility maintenance, though some training occurred there as well.

 

Extensive amounts of unexploded ordnance and remnants of exploded ordnance have been identified in the range areas of Vieques, and in the surrounding waters. Hazardous substances associated with ordnance use may include mercury, lead, copper, magnesium, lithium, perchlorate, TNT, napalm, and depleted uranium among others. At Camp Garcia, and in the NASD, the hazardous substances present may also include a range of chemicals such as PCBs, solvents, and pesticides.

Vieques is home to approximately 9,300 residents. In addition, Vieques has an active and growing tourism industry. Both visitors and residents access beaches, fisheries, and recreational waters that may be impacted by past military training. Upon cessation of Navy activities, large portions of the impacted areas were set aside as a wildlife refuge, which is home to at least 25 endangered species (federal and Puerto Rican), and other sensitive environments.

Rhode Island Newport Naval Education/Training Center The Navy has used Aquidneck Island as a refueling depot since 1900. Additional fuel facilities were built during World War II, as were a supply station, barracks, farms, and a fire fighting training school. NETC is participating in the Installation Restoration Program (IRP), established in 1978. Under this program, the Department of Defense seeks to identify, investigate, and clean up contamination from hazardous materials. IRP studies identified numerous potentially contaminated areas, including the following. The 6-acre McAllister Point Landfill, along the shore of Narragansett Bay, from 1955 to the mid-1970s accepted wastes consisting primarily of domestic refuse, spent acids, solvents, paint, waste oil, and PCB-contaminated oil.

 

Similar wastes were deposited at the 10-acre Melville North Landfill, located in a low-lying, wetland area along the shore of the bay. Also in the Melville North area are two waste oil disposal areas: a sludge bed at an old sewage treatment plant, where oil was disposed of for 6 months, and two buried fuel tank farms.

 

The disposal area is in the southwest portion of the island within 100 feet of Narragansett Bay. The Gould Island Electroplating Shop produced wastes similar to those deposited at the disposal area. The wastes probably were dumped into the bay. The shop is not accessible to the public.   Lead and copper are present in monitoring wells in McAllister Point Landfill, according to a 1986 IRP report. An estimated 4,800 people obtain drinking water and 220 acres of land are irrigated from private wells within 3 miles of hazardous substances at NETC.   Sediments collected from Narragansett Bay just off the shoreline of McAllister Point Landfill contain lead, copper, and nickel, according to the 1986 report.

 

South Carolina Davisville Naval Construction Battalion Center NCBC consists of four areas: the Main Center located on Narragansett Bay; West Davisville Storage area located 3 miles west of the Main Center; Camp Fogarty, a former training center located 4 miles west of the Main Center; and the decommissioned Naval Air Station Quonset Point to the south of the Main Center, which was given to the Rhode Island Port Authority in 1974. The Navy has disposed of wastes in all four areas.   NCBC is participating in the Installation Restoration Program (IRP), established in 1978. Under this program, the Department of Defense seeks to identify, investigate, and clean up contamination from hazardous materials. Under IRP, the Navy has identified at least 24 areas potentially containing hazardous substances. The Navy's investigations are focusing primarily on two areas: the Allen Harbor Landfill in the Main Center, which received solvents, paint thinners, degreasers, PCBs from transformers, sewage sludge, and contaminated fuel oil during 1946-72; and the Calf Pasture Landfill, which received "decontaminating agents" and various other contaminants.  

 

The primary area the Corps is investigating is the Camp Avenue Landfill, which is part of the decommissioned Naval Air Station Quonset Point. During 1943-53, the landfill accepted drums of wastes, battery casings, and other wastes.   Ground water is shallow (2-4 feet in some areas) and soils permeable, conditions that facilitate movement of contaminants into ground water. An estimated 27,000 people obtain drinking water from public wells within 3 miles of hazardous substances on NCBC.   IRP studies conducted in 1986 identified lead, cadmium, silver, mercury, and chromium in soil from the shoreline and sediments of Allen Harbor, which is a small inlet from Narragansett Bay.

 

South Dakota Savannah River Site (USDOE) The Savannah River Site (SRS), formerly known as the Savannah River Plant, has produced nuclear materials for national defense on a 192,000-acre site near Aiken in Aiken, Allendale, and Barnwell Counties, South Carolina, since 1951. First operated by the Atomic Energy Commission, it is now operated by the U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE). SRS operations generate a variety of radioactive, nonradioactive, and mixed (radioactive and nonradioactive) hazardous wastes.

 

Past and present disposal practices include seepage basins for liquids, pits and piles for solids, and landfills for low-level radioactive wastes.   According to a 1987 USDOE report, shallow ground water on various parts of the site has been contaminated with volatile organic compounds (degreasing solvents), heavy metals (lead, chromium, mercury, and cadmium), radionuclides (tritium, uranium, fission products, and plutonium), and other miscellaneous chemicals (e.g., nitrates). In 1985, trichloroethylene (TCE) was detected in nearby monitoring wells. Soil in the A-Area Miscellaneous Chemical Basin, which reportedly received drums of waste solvents, also contains TCE.

 

The 3,200 residents of Jackson, South Carolina, receive drinking water from wells within 3 miles of hazardous substances on SRS. The creek and all other surface water from SRS flow into the Savannah River, which is a major navigable river and forms the southern border between South Carolina and Georgia. Along the banks of the river is a 10,000-acre wetland known as the Savannah River Swamp. A March 1987 USDOE report indicates the swamp is contaminated with chromium, mercury, radium, thorium, and uranium, which overflowed from an old seepage basin.

Iowa Army Ammunition Plant is a Group Technology Center for missile warheads, tank ammunition, artillery rounds and demolition charges. The plant is a one-of-a-kind national resource that provides "total munitions solutions" for the Defense industrial base, which includes research, development, production, inspection, testing, assembly, packing and demilitarization. The Iowa AAP's 1,500 building facility is built on 19,300 acres in southeast Iowa. Less than a third of the IAAAP's 19,015-acre (30-square-mile) property is occupied by active or formerly-active production or storage facilities. The remaining land is evenly divided between leased agricultural acreage and woodlands.

 

The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), a public health agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, released on 05 January 2004 the final version of a public health consultation concerning the health effects from environmental releases of beryllium and depleted uranium at the Iowa Army Ammunition Plant (IAAP) in Middletown, Des Moines County, Iowa. The health consultation found that the environmental releases of beryllium and depleted uranium (DU) from the plant and from the Burlington Atomic Energy Commission Plant in Burlington, Iowa, are not at levels that would result in adverse human health effects to facility residents or to those living nearby.

 

Websites that discuss US uranium miners cancer, DU weapons factory metal fabricators cancer seem to be rapidly getting de-listed in bing, yahoo and google. Sources still searchable include: http://www.apfn.org/apfn/DU.htm and http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6279361 and http://www.wise-uranium.org/uhm.html. The Internet is being censored by the Obama Administration, the three sites above once had dozens more that have been de-listed in the major search engines. The same goes with youtube, the government is blocking access to many depleted uranium videos in youtube and vimeo.

 

Whether it is 1950, or 2012, the United States Government wishes for you to know that Uranium and Plutonium are perfectly http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3py6ahw2TMA safe. If you live within 150-200 miles of a nuclear power plant, then you need to see this important http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wA8z94MXo9M information on what to do. If Fukushima Daihatsu happens in your neighborhood, or if you are Iranian or Syrian, you need to view and heed this succinct US Government http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8SK28htqbg advanced training. But do not worry, the US Government will take good care http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bz9g_rl2JnU of you!

 

The US Government has a long and profound history of making sound, rational decisions in your best interest http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46GBjlUOROY.

 

In the 1950's and through early 1970's, the Pentagon told US military personnel   it was safe to fire nuclear cannon, it was safe to march to ground zero where an atom bomb had just exploded. The public was told that the public would survive an atomic war.

 

In the 1990's through 2012 and beyond, military personnel   are told Depleted Uranium munitions are safe to handle and "use properly'. The public are told that the Uranium bomb and bullet munitions plants are safe and non-polluting. All of us, military or civilans, are being lied to by the US Government, again. Those who work in Uranium mines, atom bomb fabricating plants, Uranium bomb and bullet munitions plants and military personnel are all 40% more likely to die of cancer than the general public. America's military might is dependent on the cancer of disposable minions. The Generals, Admirals, Secretaries of State and Presidents are the Lords of the Flies; the Plutonium and Uranium cancer victims are America's slaughtered pig. Politicians talk about our way of life but leave out the entire communities in Texas, Kentucky, Tennesse, Iowa and Loisiana where cancer is just part of the neighborhood. Those who serve in the military inhale, skin absorb and swallow all sorts of toxic molecules that are known threats to human life. This video gives you an idea of what is really going on with "clean nuclear power', aka nuclear warfare/depleted uranium warfare.

Fernald Feed Materials Production Center (commonly referred to simply as Fernald or later NLO) is a Superfund site located within Crosby Township in Hamilton County, Ohio, as well as Ross Township in Butler County, Ohio. It was a uranium processing facility located near the rural town of Fernald, about 20 miles (32 km) northwest of Cincinnati, which fabricated uranium fuel cores for the U.S. nuclear weapons production complex from 1951 to 1989. During that time, the plant produced 170,000 metric tons uranium (MTU) metal products and 35,000 MTU of intermediate compounds, such as uranium trioxide and uranium tetrafluoride.

Fernald would gain notoriety by 1984 when it was learned that the plant was releasing millions of pounds of uranium dust into the atmosphere, causing major radioactive contamination of the surrounding areas. That same year, employee Dave Bocks, a 39 year old pipefitter, disappeared during the facility's graveyard shift and was later reported missing. Eventually, his remains were discovered inside a uranium processing furnace located in Plant 6; a sudden 28-degree drop in furnace temperature (which was kept at a constant 1300 degrees F) had been recorded at 5:15 AM during the night of Bocks' disappearance.After the investigations, insufficient evidence was found relating to the death and the official ruling was that no foul play was involved. Some, however, including Bocks' family, have believed that he was murdered by one or more coworkers who suspected him of being a whistleblower in the 1984 nuclear emissions scandal. Other theories included an industrial accident or suicide. it is believed that Bocks was alive when he entered the furnace. The case was profiled on the Unsolved Mysteries television show during the early 1990s.

A report by the General Accounting Office, released March 19, confirmed Enquirer reports that the cleanup of Fernald has wasted millions of dollars through mismanagement by the contractor and a lack of oversight by the U.S. Department of Energy.

The report prompted members of Congress to say the contract of Fluor Daniel Fernald should not be renewed or extended unless major problems at the nuclear cleanup site can be fixed.

Two days later, the U.S. Energy Department, reacting to the report, said it would strip Fluor Daniel of the most critical cleanup project at the site and replace the company with a new contractor. Story

The Enquirer broke the story of mismanagement in the Fernald cleanup with a four day series entitled Danger & Deceit on Feb. 11-14, 1996. The initial series and more than 60 subsequent stories, detailed financial irregularities, safety problems and a lack of government oversight in the massive cleanup project.

Fernald Uranium Metallurgy Uranium is converted into metal before it is used in nuclear weapons production. Workers at the Fernald uranium foundry in Ohio converted hundreds of tons of uranium hexafluoride gas (the "tails" from the enrichment process) into uranium"green-salt" crystals. These crystals were blended with magnesium granules and cooked in a furnace. The mixture ignites (the resultant fumes travelled all over Ohio), converting the green-salt crystals into uranium metal. Some of this metal was made into reactor fuel or target elements for plutonium production reactors at Hanford and Savannah River. The Rocky Flats Plant in Colorado (site of numerous accidental Plutonium fire) sand the Y-12 Plant in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, formed depleted and enriched uranium metal into components for nuclear weapons. Releases of uranium dust and leaking landfills of nuclear chemicals were the primary environmental impacts of these operations.

Hanford and Savannah River The Savannah River Site (SRS) is a nuclear reservation in the United States in the state of South Carolina, located on land in Aiken, Allendale and Barnwell Counties adjacent to the Savannah River, 25 miles (40 km) southeast of Augusta, Georgia. The site was built during the 1950s to refine nuclear materials for deployment in nuclear weapons. It covers 310 square miles (800 km2) and employs more than 10,000 people.

It is owned by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The management and operating contract is held by Savannah River Nuclear Solutions LLC (SRNS), and the Liquid Waste Operations contract is held by Savannah River Remediation, which is a team of companies led by URS Corporation.

A major focus is cleanup activities related to work done in the past for the nation's nuclear buildup. Currently none of the reactors on-site are operating (see list of nuclear reactors), although two of the reactor buildings are being used to consolidate and store nuclear materials. SRS is also home to the Savannah River National Laboratory and the nation's only operating radiochemical separations facility. Its tritium facilities are also the United States' only source of tritium, an essential component in nuclear weapons. And, the nation's only mixed oxide fuel (MOX) manufacturing plant is being constructed at SRS. When operational, the MOX facility will convert legacy weapons-grade plutonium into fuel suitable for commercial power reactors. MOX fuel accidents have the potential to kill thousands and cause cancer in potentially millions of people (generationally).

The Hanford Site is a mostly decommissioned nuclear production complex on the Columbia River in the U.S. state of Washington, operated by the United States federal government. The site has been known by many names, including Hanford Works, Hanford Engineer Works or HEW, Hanford Nuclear Reservation or HNR, and the Hanford Project. Established in 1943 as part of the Manhattan Project in the town of Hanford in south-central Washington, the site was home to the B Reactor, the first full-scale plutonium production reactor in the world. Plutonium manufactured at the site was used in the first nuclear bomb, tested at the Trinity site, and in Fat Man, the bomb detonated over Nagasaki, Japan.

 

During the Cold War, the project was expanded to include nine nuclear reactors and five large plutonium processing complexes, which produced plutonium for most of the 60,000 weapons in the U.S. nuclear arsenal. Nuclear technology developed rapidly during this period, and Hanford scientists produced many notable technological achievements. Many of the early safety procedures and waste disposal practices were inadequate, and government documents have since confirmed that Hanford's operations released significant amounts of radioactive materials into the air and the Columbia River, which threatened the health of residents and ecosystems.

 

The weapons production reactors were decommissioned at the end of the Cold War, but the decades of manufacturing left behind 53 million US gallons (200,000 m3) of high-level radioactive waste, an additional 25 million cubic feet (710,000 m3) of solid radioactive waste, 200 square miles (520 km2) of contaminated groundwater beneath the site and occasional discoveries of undocumented contaminations that slow the pace and raise the cost of cleanup.

 

The Hanford site represents two-thirds of the nation's high-level radioactive waste by volume. Today, Hanford is the most contaminated nuclear site in the United States and is the focus of the nation's largest environmental cleanup.

 

[[infin]]

 

Oak Ridge, Paducah, Hanford, Fernald all contain Infinity Rooms (rooms that can only be entered by a robot). All fifty US states are covered with strong pollution from our "strong" military. Military personnel, their families and civilians are getting cancers, Lou Gehrigs disease, alzheimers, etc. from military-industrial pollution. Idiots like Romney spewing about "strong military" ignore the weak, sick and dying here at home from military pollution. Our military bases overseas are even more polluted than those here. When people's kids overseas get cancer from the military base pollution, that makes us safer, how?

The Lords of the Flies - Romney Obama

By Tracy Turner


[[lords1]]

 

The Lords of all whom they surveil, the Lords of the Flies. In the first Presidential debate, Romney spent 5.5% of his talking time discussing poverty related issues, the other 94.5% of his time discussing matters more important to him than the damn pesky littluns. Incumbent Obama spent 4.5% of his longer talk time discussing poverty related matters, 95.5% of his time not bothering with those pesky littluns.

 

The Lords of the flies prefer Lordly matters on a ratio of 19 Lordly matters for every 1 fly matter. War, bankers, Wallstreet 19, lowly flies 1. The matters of the lowly flies are irksome, troublesome, unprofitable, and not glamorous on camera. But there is a social safety net in place...

 

Between 1999 and 2002, 4,600 homeless were reported as dying of hypothermia. Homelessness has gone up drastically since 2002. The government does not bother keeping statistics of the frozen corpses of homeless; the lamestream media of ill repute are too engrossed in running TV ads for natural gas fracking to bother running statistics on frozen http://tinyurl.com/8sznzly homeless corpses.

 

Remember the heat wave, election summer of 2012? Every day of summer, one was told by the lamestream media of ill repute what was up with Romney's taxes and what jokes were quipped by Obama at numerous fundraisers. The Lords of the Flies and their Lordly mannerisms were reported in great detail. How many of America's homeless died of heat prostation in the summer of 2012? The news is too busy kow-towing to Wallstreet, Banks, politicians with Citizens United money and dirty energy titans to bother with the mundane deaths http://tinyurl.com/9b56k8q of the summer heat wave homeless.

 

[[food2]]

 

How many Americans are going hungry? The Oligarchs, the Lords of the Flies, do not care. Ryan washed clean pots and pans as a publicity stunt at a food bank kitchen. It was a mere publicity stunt, the sort of thing that makes some of us literally hate his guts.

 

[[flies1]]

 

When Romney and Obama failed to talk about the unemployed, the foreclosed upon homeowners, the homeless, the poor, the hungry, the people who freeze to death each winter and those who die in the summer heat waves" both candidates lost this writers vote. One could argue that Dr. Jill Stein is just as elitist, just as out of touch with the poor, hungry, homeless, baked and starved" But this writer shall vote for her anyway. However many days and nights of this life this writer has to live, my vote will not be a duopoly-oligarch lord-of-the-flies vote.

 

[[camp1]]

 

America's dirty little secret, the armpit of http://tinyurl.com/9r8wvmk the nation is police going paramilitary on the homeless. After the Bakersfield, California police chased one of the homeless men out of his camp, he froze to death last winter. Does this not make you feel safe from terror? This does not merit the Presidents attention, Wallstreet is much more profound on TV camera. All of these m@#^%#$%^@&er's have been reading too much Ayn Rand. Have you looked at your portfolio, lately, Mr. Lord of the Flies? I wish they would both wake up one morning and find their entire portfolio filled with fly-feces...

 

Does it make any difference if it is Bush, Obama or Romney para-military cops slashing the tents of the homeless with knives and razor-cutters? We spent trillions of dollars on anti-terrorism training for police and we use that training and payroll hours to destroy homeless camps!

 

[[magnox]]

 

Do not be mislead by the Jezebel/Attila the Hun non-news media. The Lords of the Flies are done discussing the flies, they know have the important matter of which culture to dump nuke industry toxic waste on, who will be the next concocted enemy of state to pour out our nuclear waste nightmare upon. Time to teach the world about human rights...

 

The news pundits and their safe, canned, stale debate questions will spend hundreds pf hours pontification Ralph Piggy Jack Simon Sam Eric Roger and Robert Maurice Percival. The country is evenly divided on which is the Lord of the Flies. The only thing certain is America's signal fire will go out repeatedly and neither rescue ship, hungry, poor, heat stroked, nor freezing shall find help.

 

Americans have heard enough of the 4-5% poverty related in the Presidential debates" Time for the War on Terror, who will make the superior war President to keep us http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0j4eiNNvSF0 all safe. The mainstream media and the politicians wish to put the fear of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrPdZmPB36U terror into all of us and to let us know who it is that keeps us all http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44OlSgUF9EE safe from terror.

 

The Romney Obama foreign policy debates are partly to teach our youth what it means to be of service http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUz9FuTIO-s to America. The debates between Obama and Romney remind us of the importance of supporting America's great http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoB0VKMXedQ allies.

 

As we all know, sometimes it is necessary to go to war to support http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ai96UUZGaA out allies in their http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LfbqKtwieg righteous endeavors.   This election, we will need to decide whether Romney or Obama pays overtime to keep us safe http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fmsPDERJ8g domestically and spread freedom and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGQrC0p_2-s democracy along with our allies. The next President and our allies must spread http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbv7IiOUJ3U democracy globally. The war on terror must continue, both overseas http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpIHci84ipw and domestically http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_D1aZJ6RzQ. As the very last video goes to show, new laws and measures need to be enacted to keep all of us safe.

 

As far as the poor, the safety net we have in place for them is the all volunteer poverty draft. America is a special place, where any able bodied young person who applies themselves can volunteer to go to war for a paycheck. America has a way of showing its gratitude http://tinyurl.com/8ge32es for veteran's military service. Those who defend our http://tinyurl.com/9mrgspm freedoms and liberty.

 

I pledge obedience to the Plutarchs, and to the Oligarchs for which we regime stomp, one Empire under Wallstreet, indispensable, with liberty and justice for Wealthy Oligarchs. In the names of Guantanamo and Abu Gharaib I torture, I deny due process, I give life sentence and I rejoice in our savageness ~ Amen.

Yes On Prop 37 Yes On California GMO Food Labeling

By Tracy Turner

[[gmo37]]

 

Those of us living in California have been inundated with No on Prop 37 TV ads, with narrators moaning about how unfair and unreasonable it is for us to know exactly what we are eating. This writer urges you to vote yes on Prop 37.

 

There is a short article on the biology of why we should all have GMO food labeling in California and elsewhere http://tinyurl.com/96lv2bl here. There is a much longer article on the farming, ecology and human rights (legal) aspects of this complicated issue http://tinyurl.com/cth6rou here.

 

In California, many TV ads are urging us to take the sides of "farmers" and "doctors"" But farmers and doctors are not buying expensive prime time TV ad spots. Who exactly is buying the TV time for prop 37? The top 6-7 companies financing No on Prop 37 are pesticide companies and Genetically Modified crop seed companies. Unlike the "doctors' and "farmers' in the deceptive prop 37 ads, these pesticide/GMO companies literally poison 289,000 people per year with pesticides. Their deceptive ads are written as if they are helping you; actually these six big agrotechs cause far in excess of 289,000 cancer cases per year (chronic exposure to pesticides). These companies expect to be able to do literally anything at all to food, and have you buy and eat food with no labeling telling you what they did to your food.

 

Each year, around 2.5 million tons (2,500,000 tons = 5 billion pounds) of pesticide is dumped on the planet's crops. In 2002, an estimated 69,000 children were poisoned by pesticides in the US The World Health Organization reports 220,000 people die every year worldwide because of pesticide poisoning. Are you surprised pesticide companies do not want you to know what is in your food?

 

No on Prop 37 Financiers:

 

MONSANTO COMPANY $7,100,500.00. Monsanto was and still is a pesticide company, which also sells BT crop seeds; foods you end up eating that contain pesticides and man-made genetics. So, it is not farmers or doctors telling you the GMO food labels are unfair and unreasonable, the main financier of the ads is a pesticide-Franken foods company.

 

Monsanto earns billions of dollars from Asgrow, Genuity, Ready 2 Yield, Roundup Ready and BT crop seeds. France and Poland outlawed these seeds, Poland recently and France years ago. French people have far less diabetes and obesity, largely because they do not eat frankenfoods.

 

E.I. DUPONT DE NEMOURS & CO. $4,900,000.00 is also a pesticide company who genetically alters foods. Like Monsanto, DuPont does there own "safety testing' and the American public just takes their word for it that the bacteria and algae genes spliced into food genes are "safe'. These so-called biotech companies http://tinyurl.com/clrr8va have checkered pasts.

 

BASF PLANT SCIENCE $2,000,000.00 BASF's pesticide division supplies agricultural products and chemicals. The company produces fungicides, herbicides and insecticides including F500 (pyraclostrobin), epoxiconazole, pendimethalin, boscalid, fipronil, and seed treatment products.   The company also researches Nutrigenomics. BASF is neither poor California family farmer nor a woman pediatric doctor; this is a poison company that does not want you to know what you are eating.

 

BAYER CROPSCIENCE $2,000,000.00 Bayer's Gaucho insecticide is killing the world's bees, which could cause about 1/3 of the Earth's people to starve. Profits before bees or humans.

 

DOW AGROSCIENCES LLC $2,000,000.00 Dow is another pesticide company that makes genetically modified frankenfoods.

 

PEPSICO, INC. $1,716,300.00 Quaker Oats states that it is an "all-natural" product. But Quaker Oats (a unit of PepsiCo) manages a processing plant that emits roughly 19,000 pounds of sulfuryl fluoride yearly. Sulfuryl fluoride is a toxic greenhouse gas used to treat crops like oats in storage.

SYNGENTA CORPORATION $1,000,000.00 Syngenta is a global agribusiness, agrochemical and biotechnology corporation based in Basel, Switzerland. It has substantial interests in the seed industry and genetically modified (GMO) crops. The company produces insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, field crop seeds (soybeans), vegetable seeds (corn, beans, tomatoes), and flowers.

 

GENERAL MILLS, INC. $908,200.00 common foods like breakfast cereals Kix, Cheerios, Corn Flakes, etc. are chock full of GMO corn meal. Sweetened cereals are sweetened with GMO corn syrup. Any of the grains in the cereals is usually GMO.

KELLOGG COMPANY $632,500.00 Another GMO food pushing company that tries to hide behind the word natural on their labels. http://www.organicconsumers.org/kelloggs.cfm

 

KRAFT FOODS GLOBAL, INC. $551,148.25

" Kraft has been recognized for progress in areas such as supporting diversity in the workplace and signing an agreement to improve environmental and labor standards in the coffee industry.  

" Kraft foods contain unlabeled GMO's and the company has fought to prevent the passing of labeling requirements.  

" Kraft's coffees, including Maxwell House, are not Fair Trade.  

" Trade unions in South Africa have called for a boycott of Kraft for refusing to recognize or negotiate with the Food and Allied Workers Union. http://tinyurl.com/9phot94

 

H.J. HEINZ COMPANY $500,000.00 GMO Ketchup Backlash Goes Viral After Heinz Joins Fight Against Proposition 37 http://tinyurl.com/8b83jdn

 

Cargill is the largest supplier of grains in the world. It is the world's second largest supplier of animal feed and the second largest supplier for food and industrial starches. The company is also the second largest meat packer in the U.S., after Tyson Foods. Excel was bought by Cargill in 1979 and has divisions in Australia and Canada. The company also owns Caprock, a large beef feed lot operation. Cargill is the second largest turkey processor in the U.S. It also owns Sunny Fresh egg products and Empack Foods, a meat processing company. Cargill owns Wisepack Transport, a refrigerated trucking company which transports Empack Foods and Wisconsin products across the U.S.

 

Cargills' interest in this has much to do with feeding their farm animals GMO's; it is possible that farm animals fed vast quantities of GMO's have displayed bizarre, unexpected results.

 

Others Involved:

Sunny Delight, Kellogg's, Bumble Bee Foods, Bimbo Bakeries, Campbell Soup, Land O'Lakes, Hormel Foods, Dole Packaged Foods, Del Monte Foods and Ocean Spray Cranberries, to name a few, have all joined the anti-labeling coalition to defeat Prop. 37, as well as little-known companies like Knouse Foods, who makes applesauce and apple juice under the Musselman's, Lucky Leaf, Apple Time, Lincoln and Speas Farm brand names.

As many companies have done, PepsiCo not only refuses to reveal its GMO ingredients, but in packaging products from its five divisions, Pepsi-Cola, Frito-Lay, Gatorade, Tropicana, and Quaker , it uses purposely misleading language such as "natural" or "all natural" to entice the health-conscious buyer.

More on who is bankrolling the No on Prop 37 TV ads: http://tinyurl.com/9n6rwzz

 

Mercenary Farmers and Doctors and Lady Pediatricians on TV telling you how to vote on Prop 37? Actually it is the multinational corporations above telling you how to vote. Monsanto, the most hated company worldwide, has paid millions for TV ads telling you how to vote. Rats eating Monsanto corn died, had tumors, went sterile and had stillborn babies from GMO corn. All Prop 37 does is label that corn as GMO corn, so you can avoid eating it if you so choose. Sounds pretty fair and reasonable, doesn't it? You have a right to know what you are putting into your mouth, your body.

 

Vote YES! On Prop 37!

Obama and Romney - How Many Steel Beams Will Fall On Us?

By Tracy Turner


[[mendac]]

 

The next debate will focus on foreign policy. But more than a few questions are missing. Just a few examples: Is official US foreign policy to dump nuclear waste on whoever is the current concocted enemy? If so, how does a policy of blatant US policy make us "safe' from reprisals? And what of our nuclear-illness troops and civilians? Is recruiting a poor person who is simply looking for a paycheck then having them handle depleted uranium a breach of the contract between the military and a recruit? Should our young people be told they would encounter battlefield uranium before they sign on?

 

The TV talking heads avoid these sticky wickets as it would interfere with access journalism and a fat slice of Citizens United money going to the TV stations owners.

 

There is a point the TV talking heads miss that is far more serious than who said what in which tone and context. That point is that all involved expect campaign promises to be lies. The US public expects Obama and Romney to lie. The public knows there is no plan, other than to enrich the rich including the war industries. Even the Grover Norquist Pledge will someday be negotiated around to: win a war; lose a war, save businesses too big to fail, save the military, etc.

 [[romney]]

Does it matter if the mendacity is intentional or accidental? Mitt Romney told a whooper, Mitt is going to teach the 10,000-year-old Chinese culture a thing or two about business. Mitt, a bully from a 200-year-old bully country is going to teach the ancient Chinese some manners. China is Mitt's credit card company and Mitt is the credit card holder; what lesson is he going to teach his lender? All China has to do is ratchet up the monthly interest rate and declare all debts payable immediately and Mitt's grand vision will be his demise.

 

The lies of the Presidency have a way of becoming the new truth. George Bush's self-proclaimed powers are now the powers of Obama and may become the powers of Romney. Nixon once said when the President does it, it is not illegal. When Bush, Obama or potentially Romney bombs another country with White Phosphorus and Uranium, it is not illegal. When their campaign contributors manipulate the LIBOR, the stock market and the American dollar, it is no longer illegal because those individuals are the Presidents' personal financiers.

 

The outcome of the debate and the talking heads are not the issue. The creep of illegality into the status quo is the issue. The creep of the US Constitution into torture, then life incarceration without due process of law is the new legal. Murder by executive order is also the new legal, along with Citizens United and NDAA. Each new behavior, each new law is a bit more Fascist than the last, each creep from one old standard under the Constitution into a new standard under right-wing totalitarianism.

 

The Flitcraft Parable is a story within a story from the Dashiell Hammett novel, "Maltese Falcon". Detective Sam Spade tells Bridget how a man named Flitcraft was nearly killed by a falling beam when he left his office to go golfing. The falling beam so upsets Flitcraft, he leaves his wife, job ad family behind to go live his life more fully. Once relocated, his new wife, kids, house and job resemble his former. This is overly simplified; the full parable http://www.fallingbeam.org/beam.htm is here.

 

One can easily equate the Flitcraft Parable to life in America. 9/11 was a falling beam; many people joined the military after the 9/11 falling beam. At some point, the more fortunate come home and try to resume life. The failure of the banks, Wallstreet and the Big 3 automakers were falling beams. The Flitcraft Parable is an adept parable to explain questions asked of Obama and Romney, "candidate, when is America going to stop having falling beams"? The answers are all mendacious, all lies. Even the question, "when is America going to stop having falling beams" is a tremendous lie, a most mendacious of all break from reality.

 

If you go to this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_United_States_military_operations and follow the wars from 1775 to the present, it is obvious that America rains steel beams down upon its own citizenry and the people of the world. The wars have been about tobacco, sugar, etc., but there is always some company or multinational corporation using the US military to get its way. Exxon Mobile and British Petroleum now own Iraq. But asking politicians who profit from war when we will have peace is naive. All the questions asked pertained to an economy stripped of cash to fight numerous, simultaneous wars. The answer is business shall drop steel beams on Americans and foreigners alike. The military and America's new Secret Police, DHS, shall drop steel beams down upon us all.

[[bama]]

An honest question would be why not spend just 2-3x what China spends on military and save college grants, social security and Medicare? But we shall end up spending 70-80x what China does on military and the elderly and poor and college-aged will suffer most from it. Steel beams upon your head, it is the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_United_States_military_operations American way...

 

The peace people imagine never existed here for long. The justice for all, the gender and racial equality people seek has never existed here before. But there is something that has changed, using the US Constitution to give corporations rights that people no longer have. The suspension of personal liberties for some "greater good" that only benefits an oligarchy. Bain Capital has more rights than we do. DHS contractors have rights you do not enjoy anymore. It is these last changes that the corrupt media will not ask any candidate. The debates themselves are null, void and meaningless. Idiots might be impressed with style, but most of us would rather have our denied Constitutional rights.

 

Both candidates should have been asked about the police torturing Occupiers for sanitation violations. Will your administration use secret police to intimidate people away from free speech? Such a question is not a lie, but we all know the answer to it. America no longer exists; in its place is the Police State of Oligarchs.

Stratocratic Venom Stings Self -- Military Pollution III

By Tracy Turner

(Article changed on October 16, 2012 at 14:27)

[[toxpox]]

 If a civilian working with pesticides, hazardous materials or biohazard materials put themselves, their co-workers and the general public as at risk as the military does our own people, the civilian would go to jail or prison  But when the military's pollution harms our troops and US civilians, it is just considered standard operating procedure. It appears that around 1999-2000, the US EPA gave up on hazmat cleanup and chemical cleanup with the US military. It also appears the US military gave up on itself and stopped hazmat cleanup efforts. Apparently the war on terror renewed the military's license to poison itself and others radiologically, chemically and biologically. Military bases are an open sewer in which to pour drums of TCE, depleted uranium waste, etc.

Stratocratic Venom Stings Self -- Military Pollution article I was http://tinyurl.com/92wlnew here, article II was http://tinyurl.com/9mhtgpv here.

California Alameda Naval Air Station Alameda Naval Air Station's mission was to maintain and operate facilities and provide support services for fleet aviation activities of the U.S. Navy. Historically, the site was occupied by a borax processing plant, an oil refinery, and an airport for the city of Alameda. In 1930, the site was purchased by the U.S. Army. In 1936, the U.S. Navy acquired the site and in 1940, the site was officially commissioned. Currently, the site covers approximately 1,600 acres of dry land and 1,000 acres of submerged land on the island of Alameda, California.

The eastern portion of the site is devoted to office space, residential housing, and industrial facilities. Runways and support facilities occupy the western part of the site. The facility was closed by the Navy in 1997.   The U.S. Navy's Initial Assessment Study identified 12 potential hazardous waste sources at Alameda Naval Air Station (NAS), four of which were ultimately recommended for further investigation. However, the California Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Toxic Substances Control (formerly known as the California Department of Health Services, Toxic Substances Control Division), identified 16 additional sources at the site in a Remedial Action Order to the U.S. Navy. Subsequently five more sources were also identified.

Consequently, remedial investigation/feasibility study (RI/FS) activities are being conducted at 25 areas on site, including the West Beach Landfill.   The West Beach Landfill occupies approximately 110 acres in the southwestern corner of the site. Approximately seventeen of these acres are now marshland. The West Beach Landfill is bordered to the west and south by the San Francisco Bay, and to the north and east by runways. Materials reportedly disposed of in the northeast portion of the West Beach Landfill include polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB)-contaminated transformer oils, PCB-contaminated TAC rags, and carbonless paper containing PCBs. The southwest portion of the landfill was used for the disposal of PCB-contaminated dredge spoils, which for the most part came from Alameda Naval Air Station's pier areas, turning basin, and entrance channel. Analytical results of samples collected from the southwest portion of the landfill indicated the presence of PCBs up to 483.9 micrograms per kilogram.

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (USDOE) Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) (Site 300) covers approximately 11 square miles north of Corral Hollow Road near the City of Livermore, California, straddling the Alameda/San Joaquin County line. The area is rural. LLNL was first owned by the Atomic Energy Commission. It is now owned by the U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE) and operated by the University of California. The main LLNL site, located 15 miles west of Site 300, was placed on the NPL in July 1987.   Site 300's primary mission since its inception in 1955 has been to test high explosives. It has also operated a number of solid waste landfills, accepting waste from the LLNL main site, Site 300, and Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory.

Land disposal ceased at Site 300 in November 1988. Site 300 also formerly maintained a number of waste lagoons and dry wells for disposal of liquid wastes and waste waters. The dry wells have been removed from service, and the lagoons have been replaced by two double-lined surface impoundments. The lagoons are scheduled to be capped in the summer of 1989.   Tests conducted in 1983 by an LLNL contractor detected trichloroethylene (TCE), trans-1,2-dichloroethylene, and tetrachloroethylene in on-site monitoring wells. Soil is also contaminated. These chlorinated hydrocarbons are found in the vicinity of Buildings 834, 830, and 817 and Pit 5.

The highest concentrations are of TCE near Building 834. TCE is used as a cooling and heating agent to test the stability of various high explosive compounds and is stored near Building 834 for distribution through aboveground piping. A leak is suspected as the source of soil and ground water contamination. Approximately 350 people obtain drinking water from wells within 3 miles of Site 300, most of them on Site 300 itself.   During 1983 and 1984, LLL observed increases in tritium concentrations in shallow monitoring wells downgradient from experimental and waste disposal areas in the west firing area of Site 300. The shallow aquifer is not a present or potential source of drinking water.

Concord Naval Weapons Station The Navy's substantial investigations of the station have identified 19 sites to be investigated under the Installation Restoration (IR) program, of which 8 are located in the Tidal Area. In addition, 24 Solid Waste Management Units (SWMUs) will be investigated, pursuant to RCRA, 4 of which are located in the Tidal Area.   The Tidal Area Landfill, R-Area Disposal Site, and the Wood Hogger Site are wetlands in the western portion of the Tidal Area contaminated from on-base waste disposal. The 20 acre site was a major disposal area from 1944 to 1979 and received an estimated 33,000 tons of waste. Materials and waste generated during the segregation of conventional munitions were discarded in the R-Area Disposal Site. At the Wood Hogger Site, wood contaminated with pentachlorophenol (PCP) was chipped and placed in an adjacent wetland. Another potential wetland area of concern is the Froid and Taylor Road site.

Chemical analytical data identified hazardous substances including zinc, copper, cadmium, lead, arsenic, naphthalene, and methylene chloride, in soil, sediment, or surface water.   The Kiln Site and the K-2 Area are wetlands in the eastern portion of the Tidal Area. They were contaminated as a result of private sector industrial activities, and were subsequently purchased by the Navy to create a "buffer zone" for base operations. Soil sampling in these areas in 1986 detected zinc, copper, lead, cadmium, and arsenic. High tides inundated the sources, carrying contaminants to Suisun Bay. Elevated levels of copper, zinc, lead, and arsenic were detected in surface and composite soil samples in the K-2 Area.   The contaminated areas are critical habitats for the salt marsh harvest mouse, a Federally endangered species. The black California rail, a candidate Federally endangered species, and the California clapper rail, a Federally endangered species, inhabit adjacent wetlands. Suisun Bay supports extensive commercial and recreational fishing and is a habitat for the Winter-run Chinook Salmon, also a Federally endangered species.

Edwards Air Force Base EAFB is participating in the Installation Restoration Program (IRP), established in 1978. Under this program, the Department of Defense seeks to identify, investigate, and clean up contamination from hazardous materials. Under IRP, the Air Force has identified 21 waste areas at the facility.   The Main/South Base area, at the western edge of Rogers Dry Lake, is the primary area for maintenance and refueling of aircraft. On several occasions, large amounts of fuel have been spilled in the area, and poor disposal practices have released organic solvents to the ground. Also in the area are an abandoned sanitary landfill containing pesticides and heavy metals, an area where electroplating wastes were dumped, and the industrial waste pond, which contains sediments rich in heavy metals. Trichloroethylene, trans-1,2-dichloroethylene, 1,2-dichloroethane, tetrachloroethylene, and methylene chloride are present in ground water underlying the Main/South Base area, according to a 1987 IRP report. EAFB's 13,800 employees obtain drinking water from wells within 3 miles of the Main/South Base area.

Jet Propulsion Laboratory (NASA) The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) covers 176 acres at 4800 Oak Grove Drive in Pasadena, Los Angeles County, California. The area is primarily residential with some light commercial operations. It is bordered on the east by the Arroyo Seco Dry Wash, on the west by a residential neighborhood, on the north by the San Gabriel Mountains, and on the south by an equestrian club and a Los Angeles County Fire Station. Approximately 120,800 people live within 4 miles of the site.  

Among the sources of hazardous substances at the site are numerous seepage pits, where liquid and solid wastes were reportedly disposed of; a "settling" chamber in the JPL storm drain system; contaminated soil excavated from part of the system; and an area where waste solvents were dumped into three holes. The general types of hazardous substances at JPL, now and in the past, include waste solvents such as tetrachloroethene, solid rocket fuel propellants, cooling tower chemicals, sulfuric acid, Freon, mercury, and chemical laboratory wastes.  

In 1990, contractors for JPL detected significantly elevated levels of carbon tetrachloride, trichloroethene, tetrachloroethene, and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in ground water both under and downgradient of the site. An estimated 68,000 people obtain drinking water from municipal wells within 4 miles of the site. Four City of Pasadena wells were shut down during 1989-90 due to VOCs attributable to JPL. The city has installed a treatment system, and the wells were returned to operation in October 1990. In addition, two Lincoln Avenue Water Co. wells were shut down in 1987 due to VOCs attributable to JPL; these wells are still closed.

Castle Air Force Base (6 Areas) Castle Air Force Base is in Merced, Merced County, California. The base consists of 2,777 acres of runways and airfield operations, industrial areas, and housing for base personnel. In the past, spent solvents (trichloroethylene and tetrachloroethylene , cyanide, cadmium, fuels, and waste oils have been disposed of into on-site chemical disposal pits and landfills.   The drinking water supply for the base is drawn from an aquifer underlying the base at a depth of approximately 300 feet. This has been contaminated by trichloroethylene. The Air Force has installed a new drinking water well for the base that will draw from a deeper, uncontaminated aquifer. The well is scheduled to be operational in the fall of 1984.

Fort Ord Fort Ord was established in 1917 as a maneuver area and field artillery target range for units then stationed at the Presidio of Monterey. Its primary mission now is training. Industrial operations at Fort Ord include vehicle maintenance areas, a battery charging/repair facility, photographic processing laboratories, spray painting operations, a plastics shop, laundry/dry cleaning facilities, vehicle wash racks, and a small arms repair shop. Chemicals and hazardous wastes were managed and disposed of at Fort Ord.   According to tests conducted by the Army in 1986, elevated levels of contaminants were detected in off-base ground water.

The contamination is emanating from the base and may be contaminating the drinking water supplies of the City of Marina; however, the exact location of the source has not yet been identified. The contaminants include carbon tetrachloride, tetrachloroethylene, trichloroethylene, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, and trans-1,2-dichloroethylene. An estimated 38,600 people obtain drinking water from wells within 3 miles of hazardous substances on the fort. Ground water is also used for irrigation. In addition, soil and ground water are contaminated at the Fire Drill Area, where approximately 600 gallons of petroleum products have been spilled. Fort Ord has identified at least 18 other contamination problems.

El Toro Marine Corps Air Station The El Toro Marine Corps Air Station covers approximately 4,700 acres southeast of Santa Ana in El Toro, Orange County, California. Commissioned in 1943, it supports the Fleet Marine Forces in the Pacific Ocean. The surrounding area, once primarily agricultural, is urbanizing rapidly.   Station El Toro is participating in the Installation Restoration Program (IRP), established in 1978. Under the program, the Department of Defense seeks to identify, investigate, and clean up contamination from hazardous materials.

As part of IRP, the Navy identified 21 problem areas at the station, including three landfills containing both hazardous and solid waste; buried drums of explosives and low-level radioactive waste; and areas where PCBs, battery acids, leaded fuels, and other hazardous substances were dumped or spilled.   In tests conducted early in 1987, the Orange County Water District found trichloroethylene and tetrachloroethylene in shallow irrigation wells on and downgradient of the site. An estimated 1,100 acres of land are irrigated by wells within 3 miles of the site.

March Air Force Base (MAFB) covers approximately 7,000 acres near Riverside in the Moreno Valley in Riverside County, California. MAFB is adjacent to light industrial, agricultural, and residential areas. Established in 1918 as the Alessandro Aviation Field, MAFB has served as a training base and refueling operations base. Industrial operations (including aircraft maintenance and repair) involved use of solvents and disposal of solvent wastes.

MAFB is participating in the Installation Restoration Program (IRP), established in 1978. Under this program, the Department of Defense seeks to identify, investigate, and clean up contamination from hazardous materials. As part of IRP, the Air Force investigated 28 potentially contaminated disposal areas. MAFB Well No. 1 on-base was found to be contaminated with trichloroethylene, tetrachloroethylene, and cis-1,2-dichloroethylene at levels that exceed State drinking water standards. It was taken out of service. Soils on the base are contaminated with toluene and benzene. An estimated 11,600 people obtain drinking water from municipal wells within 3 miles of hazardous substances on MAFB.

Aerojet General Corp. The Aerojet General Corp. Site covers 8,500 acres in the eastern portion of Sacramento County, California, adjacent to the Rancho Cordova area (population 40,000). The northeast edge of the site is approximately 0.5 mile from the American River. Underlying the site are extensive (50-foot deep) gold dredge tailings, a remnant of past mining operations. The upper aquifer is 80 feet below the surface. Ground water is used extensively throughout the Rancho Cordova area to supply municipal, domestic, and industrial water.  

Since 1953, Aerojet and its subsidiaries have disposed of, on-site, unknown quantities of hazardous waste, including trichloroethylene, tetrachloroethylene, chloroform, Freon and other chemicals associated with rocket propellants, and various chemical processing wastes. Soil on-site is contaminated. Monitoring data show extensive ground water contamination on- and off-site, primarily with trichloroethylene. In April 1979, Aerojet and its subsidiaries started ground water studies to examine the impact of past disposal practices and to determine the requirements for cleanup.

Mather Air Force Base (Aircraft Control and Warning Disposal Site) is located near Sacramento, Sacramento County, California. Its mission as an air training command base is to train pilots and act as support for the Strategic Air Command.

A records search of base operations has located a disposal site in the Aircraft Control and Warning (AC&W) area of the base. This is the NPL site. A well near the site was used for drinking water until October 1979, when it was shut down due to TCE contamination. The well now provides water for fire protection.

Sacramento Army Depot The Sacramento Army Depot (SAAD) occupies 485 acres within the city limits of Sacramento, Sacramento County, California, approximately 7 miles to the southeast of the Sacramento business district. Morrison Creek enters the SAAD eastern boundary. The creek parallels the depot perimeter to the south and discharges on the western boundary.  

SAAD is a supply depot primarily responsible for the receipt, storage, issue, maintenance, and disposal of various electronic materials. The primary sources of contamination at SAAD derive from metal-plating operations and their associated waste waters and solid wastes. Generally, these wastes were discharged to unlined sewage lagoons or burned and/or buried on the facility.   Ground water on and off the site is contaminated with trichloroethylene. Heavy metals above background levels have been detected in on-site ground water and in sediment of Morrison Creek immediately downstream of SAAD. The California Regional Water Quality Control Board (CRWQCB) and SAAD have been discussing additional monitoring of ground water and further investigations to define contaminated areas.

The Barstow Marine Corps Logistics Base is in San Bernardino County, California. It is in the Mojave Desert and adjacent to the Mojave River. A portion of the base, the 1,568-acre Nebo Area, is approximately 1 mile east of the City of Barstow. It has been used for maintenance, repair, and rebuilding of supplies and equipment for the Marine Corps since 1942. Solvent wastes, including trichloroethylene (TCE), were apparently generated in substantial quantities in the Nebo Area facility. Due to the lack of records, the quantities of solvents used, stored, and discharged on-site are unknown. The same activities were conducted at the 1,681-acre Yermo Area, 6 miles east of Nebo.

Monitoring wells at both Nebo and Yermo are contaminated with TCE, according to tests conducted in 1984-85 as part of IRP studies and by the U.S. Geological Survey. Public wells within 3 miles of hazardous substances at the base supply drinking water to an estimated 28,700 residents of the city of Barstow and outlying areas.

George Air Force Base (GAFB) occupies 5,347 acres in the Mojave Desert region near Victorville, San Bernardino County, California. It was established in 1941 to conduct tactical fighter operations and provide training for aircraft and maintenance personnel. Industrial operations, including maintenance of aircraft and ground support equipment, involved use and disposal of solvents.

GAFB is participating in the Installation Restoration Program (IRP), established in 1978. Under this program, the Department of Defense seeks to identify, investigate, and clean up contamination from hazardous materials. During IRP tests conducted between March and May 1986, the Air Force discovered trichloroethylene (TCE) in ground water on and off the base. The northeast section of GAFB, used for disposal of solvents, appears to be one source of the contamination, although several other areas on the base are also suspected of contributing to the contamination. 

In addition to TCE, benzene and 1,2-dichloroethane were detected in on-base monitoring wells at levels that exceed State and Federal drinking water standards. An estimated 11,000 people obtain drinking water from wells within 3 miles of hazardous substances on the base. The wells are upgradient of known contamination.

Norton Air Force Base (Landfill #2 ) Past hazardous waste management practices may have

contributed to existing contamination problems throughout the base. The practices include burial of drums and other unspecified materials; disposal of waste oils, solvents, and paint residues into landfills, unlined pits, ponds, and drying beds; storage in leaking underground tanks; and spills of AVGAS, oils, solvents, PCBs, and acidic plating solutions.

Industrial solvents have been used extensively on the base. Unknown quantities of spent solvents were disposed of in several base landfills. A well on the base has been contaminated with trichloroethylene (TCE). The well water is currently being used in a blended system and is sampled quarterly to ensure that TCE is below the California State action level. The water is used by approximately 11,000 people who live and/or work on the base.

Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base As part of IRP studies, the Navy identified a number of potentially contaminated areas, including eight areas where wastes containing DDT, heptachlor, 2,4-T, lindane, zinc, lead, trichloroethylene, methyl ethyl ketone, benzene, and xylene had been deposited.   Ground water is shallow, averaging 7-14 feet deep, and soils are permeable, conditions that facilitate movement of contaminants into ground water. The 40,000 people living and working on the base obtain drinking water from wells within 3 miles of hazardous substances on the base.

The nearest well is within 1,320 feet of one of the disposal areas. To date, no contaminants have been detected in the camp's water supply.   San Margarita River, Las Flores Creek, and San Mateo Creek empty into coastal wetlands within 2 miles of Camp Pendleton. Surface waters within 3 miles downstream are used for recreational activities. Critical habitats for three birds designated as endangered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are within 1 mile of the camp.

Treasure Island Naval Station-Hunters Point Annex Hunters Point Annex of   Treasure Island Naval Station, formerly the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard , encompasses 936 acres (522 acres dry land and 414 acres submerged in San Francisco Bay) in the southeast corner of San Francisco, California. Established in 1869, the shipyard was the first privately owned dry dock on the Pacific Coast. The Navy first used the installation in 1919 to construct, maintain, and repair ships, and in 1939 purchased it from California Dry Dock Co. Triple A Machine Shop leased the facility from the Navy during 1976-87, subleasing numerous buildings to private tenants. The Navy regained possession of the shipyard from Triple A in 1987, but continues the subleasing. Operations of the facility over many decades generated a wide variety of solid and liquid wastes, including paints, solvents, fuels, acids, bases, metals, PCBs, and asbestos.

The Navy has identified a number of potentially contaminated areas, including Industrial Landfill, Bay Fill Area, Pickling and Plating Yard, Battery and Electroplating Shop, Old Transformer Storage Yard, Power Plant, Oil Reclamation Ponds, Tank Farm, numerous spill areas, and areas leased by Triple A. These areas are potential sources of contaminant migration into ground water and into San Francisco Bay. In the past, wastes and waste water were directly discharged into San Francisco Bay.

Benzene, PCBs, toluene, and phenols have been detected in on-site ground water in IRP tests conducted in 1987. A bottling company draws ground water from springs within 3 miles of hazardous substances on the annex. The company serves 19,000 people.

Sediments contain elevated levels of heavy metals and polyaromatic hydrocarbons. Area surface waters are used for recreational activities, commercial navigation, and fishing.

Sharpe Army Depot covers 724 acres in a primarily rural area of San Joaquin County in north-central California, approximately 60 miles east of San Francisco, 2 miles east of the San Joaquin River, and 1.5 miles northeast of Lathrop.

The site is a former U.S. Army maintenance facility. Wastes produced on-site were disposed of in multiple locations, including the South Balloon Area, the Burning Pits Area, and the North Balloon Area. These areas cover about 0.5 square mile. The wastes disposed of at the depot include sludge containing phenols and polychlorinated hydrocarbons (trans-dichloroethylene, trichloroethylene, carbon tetrachloride), and used paints and solvents. The total amounts and types are unknown. The wastes have contaminated both soil and ground water, but not surface water to date. All maintenance activities have ceased, and the waste areas are no longer used.

The site is located in the large plain on the valley floor, which carries several aquifers, at least one artesian. Most of the surrounding land is used for agriculture, primarily for raising row crops.

Tracy Defense Depot (USARMY) covers 448 acres 1.5 miles southwest of Tracy, San Joaquin County, California. Special operations include repacking leaking chemical containers, fumigation of shipping materials, vehicle maintenance, painting, storage of chemicals, derusting and preserving of metal parts, operation of chemical and photographic laboratories, storage and mixing of pesticides, and storage and treatment of liquid and solid wastes.

Liquid waste treatment/storage areas include two unlined sewage effluent ponds, two abandoned sewage lagoons, two lined industrial waste water ponds, an abandoned paint spraying/stripping rinse water pond, an abandoned trench where 150 drums of lubricating oil reportedly were buried, an unlined pond for holding storm water, an abandoned pesticide disposal trench, an abandoned area where substantial amounts of formaldehyde were buried, and aboveground and belowground waste tanks. Also, liquid wastes were formerly stored on-site in an unpaved area, and solvents, radiological commodities, medical supplies, and solid and liquid chemicals were disposed of in three burning pits.

Former solid waste treatment/storage areas include a fill area where food items were buried, a fill area where construction material was buried, and three impoundments where wastes containing mercury phosphate compounds were stored. Currently, all solid hazardous waste is hauled off-site to facilities regulated under Subtitle C of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act.

Tracy Defense Depot is participating in the Installation Restoration Program (IRP), established in 1978. Under this program, the Department of Defense seeks to identify, investigate, and clean up contamination from hazardous materials. In 1985, IRP tests indicated the shallow aquifer below the site, which extends from 15 feet to 250 feet below the surface, is contaminated with trichloroethylene and tetrachloroethylene.

Municipal, private, and irrigation wells are within 3 miles of hazardous substances at the depot. Water from Tracy's municipal well, which is within 3 miles of the site, is blended with water from other wells and from Delta Mendota Canal to provide drinking water to an estimated 28,600 people.

Moffett Naval Air Station Moffett Naval Air Station covers 8,700 acres in Sunnyvale, Santa Clara County, California. In the past, various solvents and sludges were disposed on-site into ponds and landfills and onto the ground. As a result, soil and ground water on-site are contaminated. The major contaminants in ground water are volatile organic compounds. About 272,000 people depend on wells within 3 miles of the station as a source of drinking water.

Riverbank Army Ammunition Plant In 1942, the Aluminum Co. of America constructed RBAAP as an aluminum reduction plant to supply the military.

As a result of industrial activities, RBAAP has generated varying quantities of corrosive wastes (phosphoric acid, sulfuric acid, and caustic cleaners), solvents, spent pickle liquids, and waste water containing metals.  

According to tests conducted by the Army, significant levels of contaminants, including chromium, cyanide, and 1,1-dichloroethylene, have migrated into ground water close to or beyond the installation boundary. About 13,700 people obtain drinking water from public and private wells within 3 miles of the site, and at least 3,500 acres of nut and fruit orchards are partially irrigated by ground water. The Army has also found that sediments in the waste treatment ponds contain chromium, lead, and zinc. Overflows from the ponds have dumped into the Stanislaus River, and the river has occasionally overflowed into the ponds during periods of flooding. The river is used for irrigation and recreational activities.

Travis Air Force Base As part of IRP, the Air Force has identified a number of potentially contaminated areas, including three landfills used during 1943-77, of which one (Landfill No. 3) was used for disposal of crushed and rinsed pesticide containers, as well as the rinsate; areas where combustible wastes were burned for fire fighting exercises from 1943 to the mid-1970s; a pit where about 250 pounds of cyanide were buried in about 1967; a solvent spill area where methyl ethyl ketone, toluene, and tetraethylene glycol dimethyl ether may have been spilled during paint stripping operations; and the storm sewer system, one of the most contaminated portions of the base, where chemical wastes from the various shops were dumped throughout the history of the base.

The old decommissioned sewage treatment plant is also of concern because cracked oxidation ponds may have contaminated the ground water below with pesticides and industrial chemicals.   Endrin, benzene, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, tetrachloroethylene, and 1,1-dichloroethane were detected in monitoring wells in different parts of the base, according to a 1986 IRP report. An estimated 400 people obtain drinking water from wells within 3 miles of hazardous substances on the base; the nearest well is 3,400 feet from the base.   1,1,1-trichloroethane, benzene, chlorobenzene, 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane, and trans-1,2-dichloroethylene were detected in the storm sewers, according to the 1986 IRP report, and chlorobenzene was detected in Union Creek, which is routed through the base via the storm drain system.

A spill of jet fuel in 1978 killed all aquatic wildlife along 2 miles of Union Creek. The creek flows 1.1 miles to Hill Slough, which is a branch of Suisun Marsh, a major coastal wetland. Because Hill Slough is tidally influenced, any contamination can reach San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Suisun Marsh is widely used for various recreational activities and is a major stop for migratory birds on the Pacific Flyway.

Accident, News Blackout ordered

Submitted by greatscott on Sun, 06/19/2011 - 11:42

 It definitely is a fact our Government is doing everything in their power to destroy the Country from top to bottom, forwards and backwards. This is awful news and not a peep about this in the state run news media anywhere. This is Treason at the Highest Level.

The Nation Newspaper Sunday, June 19, 2011

US orders news blackout over crippled Nebraska Nuclear Plant: report Submitted 1 day 9 hrs ago

A shocking report prepared by Russia's Federal Atomic Energy Agency (FAAE) on information provided to them by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) states that the Obama regime has ordered a "total and complete" news blackout relating to any information regarding the near catastrophic meltdown of the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant located in Nebraska.

According to this report, the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant suffered a "catastrophic loss of cooling" to one of its idle spent fuel rod pools on 7 June after this plant was deluged with water caused by the historic flooding of the Missouri River which resulted in a fire causing the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) to issue a "no-fly ban" over the area.

Located about 20 minutes outside downtown Omaha, the largest city in Nebraska, the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant is owned by Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) who on their website denies their plant is at a "Level 4" emergency by stating: "This terminology is not accurate, and is not how emergencies at nuclear power plants are classified."

Russian atomic scientists in this FAAE report, however, say that this OPPD statement is an "outright falsehood" as all nuclear plants in the world operate under the guidelines of the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale (INES) which clearly states the "events" occurring at the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant do, indeed, put it in the "Level 4" emergency category of an "accident with local consequences" thus making this one of the worst nuclear accidents in US history.

Cornhusker Army Ammunition Plant Groundwater contamination by explosives, soil contamination by explosives and heavy metals: Cadmium, Copper, Cobalt, Lead, Mercury, Molybdenum, Vanadium and Zinc.

Former Nebraska Ordnance Plant Groundwater contamination by VOCs and explosives; some soil contamination and possible unexploded ordnance.

New Hampshire Pease Air Force Base has 13 disposal areas include 7 landfills, 2 areas where waste oil and solvents were burned for fire fighting exercises, and 4 areas where solvents and other liquid wastes were discharged on the ground. At present, all hazardous wastes generated on the base are disposed of off-site at EPA-regulated facilities.

In 1977, a well supplying drinking water to 8,700 people on the base was found to be contaminated with trichloroethylene (TCE) in tests conducted by an Air Force contractor. In 1984, the Air Force installed an aeration system to remove TCE from all base water supply wells. An estimated 30,000 people obtain drinking water from public and private wells within 3 miles of hazardous substances on the base.

According to a 1988 IRP report, heptachlor and lindane are contaminating surface water along the surface run-off pathway from one of the landfills, and lead and zinc are in sediments of three major drainage ditches on the base. Shellfish are harvested from Great Bay and Little Bay, which are within 3 miles downstream of the base.

The base abuts Great Bay, which is a tidal estuary. Both coastal and fresh water wetlands are along surface water migration pathways from the disposal areas.

New Jersey McGuire Air Force Base #1 The McGuire Air Force Base site (MAFB) is an active facility that occupies more than 3,500 acres in a rural area of Burlington County, New Jersey.

The primary source for both community and private drinking water supplies in the vicinity of the site is groundwater obtained from the various aquifers comprising the Atlantic Coastal Plain system. There are two major drainage surface water divides on site, and several streams to which surface runoff is directed. An extensive system of wetlands is found along both major surface water drainage pathways. Hazardous substances detected by analysis of surface soil, subsurface soil, waste, leachate, groundwater, surface water/sediment samples collected from the site include volatile organic compounds, polychlorinated biphenyls, and inorganic hazardous substances. A release to surface water of nickel and mercury is documented. Sediment samples collected from wetlands immediately downstream of Landfill No. 2 contained high concentrations of nickel and mercury.

Naval Weapons Station Earle Wastes generated from weapons maintenance activities include: grit and paint chips from sandblasting; paint scrapings;

solvent and paint sludges; lead bullets from small arms ranges; and metals including lead, zinc, and chromium. NWSE lies over an important drinking water aquifer. Approximately 1,900 residents live within a 3-mile radius of the station, and there are 500 homes on the base. An estimated 320 private and municipal wells serve 1,200 people within a 3-mile radius, and groundwater also is used for irrigation. Local surface water is used for recreation and crop irrigation.

Groundwater contaminants: Iron, Arsenic, Barium, Vinyl Chloride, Tetrachloroethan, Carbon Tetrachloride, Benzine, Cadmium, 1,1-Dichloroethene, Trichloroethene, PCE, Chromium, Aluminum, Iron and Manganese

Soil Contaminants: Aluminum (metal), Mercury, Chromium, Copper, Vanadium metal or alloy, Arsenic and Cadmium

Monitoring wells and soils adjacent to unlined lagoons, which, until 1981, held waste water from metal plating and etching facilities, are contaminated with trichloroethylene, trans-1,2-dichloroethylene, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, and tetrachloroethylene, according to tests reported to EPA in 1986. Some of these same wells have elevated concentrations of cadmium, lead, and copper. The arsenal's 5,500 employees obtain their drinking water from two wells upgradient from an area of confirmed ground water contamination.

NO URANIUM MINING IN CHURCHROCK, NEW MEXICO

UNTIL LEGACY WASTE IS CLEANED UP

By Eastern Navajo Diné Against Uranium Mining ENDAUM
Photos by Leona Morgan, Navajo http://tinyurl.com/8w5ps4v


CHURCHROCK, N.M. -- On July 19, 2012, the uranium mining company Hydro Resources Inc. signed an agreement with the Navajo Nation giving the mining company limited access across Navajo Indian Country to its Churchrock Section 8 mine site. The agreement specifically states that Hydro Resources (a subsidiary of Uranium Resources Inc.) cannot begin mining uranium until legacy waste at Section 8 and adjacent Section 17 has been cleaned up.


Hydro Resources announced its intention to mine uranium on Section 8 and Section 17 in 1994. Community members organized themselves as the Eastern Navajo Diné Against Uranium Mining (ENDAUM) and sought the help of the nonprofit law firm New Mexico Environmental Law Center to keep irresponsible uranium mining from returning to Navajo lands. ENDAUM has kept the fight going for over a decade and Hydro Resources has yet to break ground.

The Uranium mining, milling, spills and tailings that the Navajo are forced to contend with on their reservation would never occur in the Hamptons or Beverly Hills. People hear the term environmental racism and do not comprehend it. Imagine Uranium tailings and a huge Uranium hexafluoride spill in the exact center of the Hamptons. Lawsuits, Senators and Congressmen losing their seats, the Governor de-throned and an endless flap in the media. But when these types of life-threatening pollution happen on a Navajo reservation, people take it for granted and it is not in the main stream news. What if a huge Uranium spill occurred in Chicago's South Shore middle-class Jewish neighborhood? Now that would make the news. This is what is known as Environmental Racism, the essence of articles about Shell and the Ogoni Nine or Cancer Alley (Chemical Corridor), Louisiana. The pollutants kill everyone equally, but the chemical plants are generally constructed in poorer neighborhoods.

New York Griffiss Air Force Base While in operation, various wastes were generated, including solvents and lead from battery acids.  These wastes were disposed in landfills and dry wells located throughout the base.  Ground water beneath portions of the base was found to be contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are potentially harmful substances that easily evaporate in the air.  Soils were contaminated with heavy metals and PCBs.  PCBs and semi-volatile organic compounds were also found in two nearby bodies of water, Three Mile Creek and Six Mile Creek.

Seneca Army Depot The groundwater is contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) including trichloroethylene (TCE),

1,2-Dichloroethene, vinyl chloride, and metals. Soils are contaminated with heavy metals, VOCs and SVOCs.

Brookhaven National Laboratory (USDOE) When the site was listed, on-site soil was contaminated with heavy metals, hydrocarbons, radioactive materials, oils, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are potentially harmful contaminants that can easily evaporate into the air.   Sediments in the on-site portion of the Peconic River were contaminated with metals and low levels of radionuclides.   On-site and off-site groundwater was contaminated with VOCs, radionuclides, and pesticides.   DOE connected neighboring properties to the public water supply as a protective measure.

Malta Rocket Fuel Area DOH and DEC detected significant concentrations of carbon tetrachloride, trichloroethylene, chloroform, and dibromochloromethane in the three drinking water wells at the Test Station. One of the wells serves as a backup but is rarely used. DOH has advised the tenants not to drink the water. About 1,900 people are served by wells within 3 miles of the site.

Plattsburgh Air Force Base Activities at the Fire Training Area have contaminated groundwater that caused a ground water plume consisting fuel-related compounds and potentially harmful odorless solutions. This plume extends thousands of feet and comes within 2000 feet of Lake Champlain. Four landfills were used during different periods for disposal of household wastes and construction debris which could have contained hazardous wastes. Water flowing from these landfills was found to be contaminated with pesticides and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are potentially harmful contaminants that easily evaporate into the air. Soils near a storage area were found to be contaminated with pesticides as a result of leaking drums. A separate failed underground storage tank resulted in soil and groundwater contamination with potentially harmful, odorless solutions.

Oak Ridge K-25 Tennessee, Portsmouth ( Piketon, Ohio) and Paducah Kentucky Gaseous Diffusion Plants

During the Dwight Eisenhower era of the Coldwar, the public was criticizing the Eisenhower administration for building so many atom bombs at such a high financial cost. The bomb companies (General Electric) scientists came up with a ploy to get the public off of Eisenhower's back: "Atoms for Peace -- electricty almost too cheap to meter from Uranium". Duck http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_1jkLxhh20 and cover" Go to your nearest civil defense shelter if your nearest nuclear power plant melts down http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsHUIxt1iMw.

Oak Ridge Reservation (ORR), operated by the U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE), covers about 58,000 acres in Oak Ridge, in Anderson and Roane Counties, Tennessee. The area around the reservation is predominately rural except for the City of Oak Ridge (population 28,000). ORR consists of three major operating facilities: Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a research lab that includes nuclear reactors, chemical plants, and radiosotope production labs; Oak Ridge Gaseous Diffusion Plant, a production complex previously engaged primarily in the enrichment of uranium-235; and the Y-12 Plant, located immediately adjacent to the City of Oak Ridge, which produces nuclear weapon components, processes nuclear materials, and performs other related functions.

ORR operations generate a variety of radioactive, nonradioactive, and mixed (radioactive and nonradioactive) hazardous wastes, many of which in the past were disposed of or stored on-site. Leakage from inactive disposal and storage facilities, coupled with spills and other accidental releases, has contaminated many areas in and around ORR.

Metals, organics, and radionuclides have been detected in ORR soil, ground water, and surface water. At present, ground water contamination appears confined to ORR.

A 1983 study by USDOE estimates that 733,000 pounds of elemental mercury were released to the environment in the 1950s and 1960s around the Y-12 Plant. Most of the contamination around Y-12 is confined to the upper 10 feet of soils and fill. Additional studies revealed that some 170,000 pounds of mercury are contained in the sediments and floodplain of about a 15-mile length of East Fork Poplar Creek (EFPC), which has its headwaters at Y-12, and that some 500 pounds of mercury annually leave this watershed. Mercury and cesium-137 have been detected at higher than background levels in sediments of the Clinch River and the Tennessee River near Chattanooga, some 118 miles downstream of ORR. Seven water intakes in this 118-mile stretch provide drinking water to an estimated 43,200 people. Wetlands in the Blyth Ferry Water Fowl Management Area are also near the 118-mile stretch of the river.

EFPC flows through the City of Oak Ridge, exposing people to mercury-contaminated soils in the easily accessible areas of the floodplains of the creek. USDOE has removed soil at several locations along the creek where mercury concentrations were particularly high.

EPA dialogue on Paducah: The Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant (PGDP) is a uranium enrichment facility covering approximately 1,350 acres in western McCracken County approximately 10 miles west of Paducah, Kentucky, and about 3 miles south of the Ohio River.

Approximately 740 acres of the plant are located within a fenced security area.

PGDP performs the first step in the uranium enrichment process, enriching uranium-235 (U-235) in a physical separation process. Subsequent to processing at PGDP, the uranium is further enriched at another USDOE gaseous diffusion plant. Extensive support facilities are required to maintain the diffusion process, including a steam plant, four major electrical switchyards, four sets of cooling towers, a building for chemical cleaning and decontamination, a water treatment plant, maintenance facilities, and laboratory facilities.

Plant operations have generated hazardous, nonhazardous, and radioactive wastes, including PCBs, trichloroethene (TCE), uranium (multiple isotopes), and technetium-99 (Tc-99). In August 1988, USDOE found Tc-99 in an offsite drinking water well north of PGDP. TCE has also been detected in nearby private wells and onsite monitoring wells. Approximately 1,400 people obtain drinking water from public and private wells within 4 miles of PGDP.

USDOE has detected PCBs in onsite surface water and downstream of the plant in Big Bayou Creek and in Little Bayou Creek. These creeks are part of the West Kentucky Wildlife Management Area located adjacent to the facility. In 1989, the State of Kentucky's Division of Water warned against consumption of fish caught from Little Bayou Creek.

Department of Energy dialogue on Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion site: The cleaning and changeout of process equipment at the Portsmouth Plant generated spent solvents and other contaminants that were disposed of in onsite landfills and surface impoundments. The contaminants include chlorinated solvents, such as trichloroethylene, chlorinated solvents mixed with radionuclides in low concentrations, metals, and polychlorinated biphenyls. Additional sources of contamination are uranium deposits in process equipment and radionuclides in buildings, cooling towers, burial grounds, and wastewater ponds. Trichloroethylene is the main contaminant of concern in the ground-water systems at the Portsmouth site. To date, no ground-water contamination has migrated offsite.

The areas adjacent to Portsmouth, Paducah and Oak Ridge Gaseous Diffusion plants have a higher cancer rates than Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion site: Out of 8877 workers from 1954-1991,   all cancer deaths were 313, lung cancer deaths were 112.

Oak Ridge Reservation: Compendium of Public Health Activities at the US Department of Energy

Executive Summary of Completed Worker Studies 3.1.1-3.1.11

http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/hac/oakridge/phact/c_3.html

For all workers examined as a group, nonstatistically significant elevations were observed for cancer of the pancreas (SMR=1. 36, 34 recorded deaths), skin cancer (SMR=1. 07, 11 recorded deaths), breast cancer (females only, SMR=1. 21, 11 recorded deaths), prostate cancer (SMR=1. 31, 36 recorded deaths), kidney cancer (SMR=1. 30, 16 recorded deaths), brain cancer (SMR=1. 29, 20 recorded deaths), cancers of other lymphatic tissues (SMR=1. 32, 22 recorded deaths), and diseases of the blood-forming organs (SMR=1. 23, 6 recorded deaths). (2380)

Elevated mortality was statistically significant for all causes (SMR=1. 11, 11,671 recorded deaths); tuberculosis (SMR=1. 37, 108 recorded deaths); mental, psychoneurotic, and personality disorders (SMR=1. 60, 81 recorded deaths); cerebrovascular disease (SMR=1. 11, 833 recorded deaths); diseases of the respiratory system (SMR=1. 25, 792 recorded deaths); emphysema (SMR=1. 24, 209 recorded deaths); all accidents (SMR=1. 28, 694 recorded deaths); and motor vehicle accidents (SMR=1. 44, 339 recorded deaths). (1690). (abbreviated synopsis).

The Federal Government is still white-washing both Uranium workers deaths and the deaths of people who live within 100 miles of Oak Ridge, Paducah and Portsmouth Uranium processing and nuclear weapons fabricating facilities.

  • A draft study of workers at the K-25 plant in Oak Ridge shows unusually high death rates for former uranium workers, as well as sharply higher rates of lung and bone cancers. s posthumous tests, conducted as part of a lawsuit in 1983 but never published, offer the strongest corroboration to date of hazardous conditions inside the Paducah plantstrongest corroboration to date of hazardous conditions inside the uranium , where workers labored for decades in a haze of radioactive dust that was sometimes laced with deadly plutonium.
  • His bones were analyzed by a Canadian lab for uranium, but for reasons now unclear the results were never published. s claims of radiation exposure but also suggested hazards at the plant were far greater than previously believed: More than a dozen years after Harding left the plant, his body contained uranium at levels up to 133 times higher than is normally found in bones.
  • Department of Health and Human Services has issued final rules under which federal workers exposed to radiation will be compensated for job-related cancers.
  • Under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act, workers from Paducah and similar facilities at Portsmouth, Ohio, and Oak Ridge, Tenn. , can receive $150,000 plus coverage for future cancer-related medical expenses.
  • Because the law includes workers employed from the early Cold War through the 21st century, the true number who may be eligible for compensation is impossible to calculate, said Larry Elliott, director of the Office of Compensation Analysis and Support at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "Six hundred thousand is probably a low estimate," he said.
  • Given that roughly 25% of the population receives a diagnosis of cancer--a figure that could increase among nuclear weapons workers, said Elliott--150,000 or more cancer-burdened employees and their families could be eligible for compensation.
  • The process, though time-consuming, is engineered to shift statistical uncertainties to the claimant's advantage, said Elliott. "We are trying to be claimant friendly. " Despite this assurance, it could be a decade or longer before the final tally of radiation exposure-related malignancies becomes clear.

The estimates for people exposed to radiation from Oak Ridge Reservation is 600,000, the estimate for Camp Lejeune who drank TCE water is 750,000. The Military-Department of Energy-industrail complex is sloppy with people's lives.

The National Disease Cluster Alliance tries to investigate disease clusters. There is an interactive map on this http://clusteralliance.org/clusters/ webpage that shows areas of cluster cancers, etc. Efforts by the Federal Government to compensate Uranium workers and miners, care for their medical needs are underfunded. The mighty superpower USA derives its military might via the tumors, cancers, ALS, etc. of the US worker and average soldier drinking and bathing in TCE at Camp Lejeune or elsewhere.

Stratocratic Venom Stings Self -- Military Pollution II

By Tracy Turner

 

[[mushboom]]

 

Does the military need protecting from itself? America's military might is killing our own soldiers even here on our own soil; our Stratocratic venom is killing all of us in slow motion. The minuet between EPA and Defense is a meaningless dance; Chrome 6 in drinking, cooking and bathing water ends up in us, not in an EPA cleanup effort.

Idaho Ask yourself this question:
Has there ever been a nuclear power plant meltdown that caused direct fatalities in the United States?

 

[[sl1]]

The SL-1 nuclear power plant in Idaho suffered a core meltdown and exploded on January 3rd, 1961, killing three members of the maintenance crew.

The Stationary Low Power Reactor, or SL-1, was a small nuclear reactor built by the U.S. Army to explore the possibility of using such reactors for generating power in the field.

In particular, the Army wanted to know if small reactors could work on very remote sites, like the Arctic Circle and Antarctica.

On January 3, 1961, it blew up, killing three people. It was the first time an accident in a nuclear reactor had resulted in fatalities, and the only time such an event has occurred at a DOE facility.

Idaho National Laboratory (DOE) Groundwater contamination by hexavalent chromium, iodine-129, strontium-90, technetium-99, tritium, carbon tetrachloride and TCE; soil contamination by heavy metals including lead and mercury, by VOCs, and by radionuclides, including cesium-137, strontium-90, and plutonium.

Mountain Home Air Force Base Groundwater contamination by TCE, aviation fuel and benzene from aircraft maintenance and industrial operations.

 

Illinois Savanna Army Depot Activity soils are contaminated with metals, pesticides, explosives, lead-based paint chips, and PAHs. Groundwater is contaminated with various pesticides, explosives, solvents, and petroleum-related contaminants. Sediments and surface water are contaminated with various explosives, PAHs, and metals. Multiple areas throughout the facility contain munitions and explosives of concern/unexploded ordnance (MEC/UXO).

 

Joliet Army Ammunition Plant Load-Assembly-Packing Area. Site of federal ammunitions plant polluted with base neutral acids, metals, nitroaromatics, PCBs, and petroleum hydrocarbon. Physical clean up has been completed, but site remains on the NPL list. Soil contaminated with explosives and metals, primarily TNT, tetryl, DNT, and lead. Groundwater plumes contaminated with explosives, VOCs, and metals.

 

Iowa Army Ammunition Plant (Des Moines) Surface water and groundwater contamination by explosives from munitions processing.

 

Kansas Fort Riley Military Reservation groundwater contaminated with vinyl chloride, solvents, perchloroethylene (PCE), and other volatile organic compounds. Landfill debris contains waste oils and degreasing solvents.

Kentucky Maxey Flat Low Level Radioactive Waste facility. From 1963 to 1977 the Maxey Flat Low Level Radioactive Waste facility served as a dump for 832 corporations and government agencies. The site covered 252 acres (1.02 km2) and consisted of a series of 52 unlined trenches that are an average of 360 feet (110 m) long, 70 feet (21 m) wide and 20 feet (6.1 m) deep. Approximately 4,750,000 cubic feet (135,000 m3) of Low Level Radioactive Waste was deposited on-site. These trenches were capped with dirt when they reached their capacity limit, but because of the heavy rainfall in the area the soil collapsed into the trenches and the trenches filled with water.

 

Under the direction of President and Chief Executive Officer James N. Neel, Nuclear Engineering Company (referred to in operational documentation as 'NECO'), now known as 'American Ecology' (Nasdaq: ECOL), installed an evaporator and disposed of the accumulated radioactive water as steam from 1973 to April 1986, nearly 9 years after the site had stopped accepting waste materials. The evaporator generally operated 24 hours a day. Approximately six million gallons of liquid were processed by the evaporator. In addition to the trenches for Low Level Radioactive Waste there were "Hot Wells" that were used to store Special nuclear material (plutonium and enriched uranium).

 

Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant (USDOE) The Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant (PGDP) is a uranium enrichment facility covering approximately 1,350 acres in western McCracken County approximately 10 miles west of Paducah, Kentucky, and about 3 miles south of the Ohio River. PGDP began operating in 1952 and is owned and operated by the U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE). The facility is currently managed by Martin Marietta Energy Systems, Inc.   Approximately 740 acres of the plant are located within a fenced security area. An uninhabited buffer zone surrounds the fenced area. Beyond the USDOE-owned buffer zone is an extensive wildlife management area of 2,100 acres deeded or leased to the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  

 

PGDP performs the first step in the uranium enrichment process, enriching uranium-235 (U-235) in a physical separation process. The separation process is based on the faster rate at which U-235 diffuses through a barrier, in comparison with the heavier uranium-238 (U-238). Subsequent to processing at PGDP, the uranium is further enriched at another USDOE gaseous diffusion plant. Extensive support facilities are required to maintain the diffusion process, including a steam plant, four major electrical switchyards, four sets of cooling towers, a building for chemical cleaning and decontamination, a water treatment plant, maintenance facilities, and laboratory facilities.  

 

Plant operations have generated hazardous, nonhazardous, and radioactive wastes, including PCBs, trichloroethene (TCE), uranium (multiple isotopes), and technetium-99 (Tc-99). In August 1988, USDOE found Tc-99 in an offsite drinking water well north of PGDP. TCE has also been detected in nearby private wells and onsite monitoring wells. Approximately 1,400 people obtain drinking water from public and private wells within 4 miles of PGDP.   USDOE has detected PCBs in onsite surface water and downstream of the plant in Big Bayou Creek and in Little Bayou Creek. These creeks are part of the West Kentucky Wildlife Management Area located adjacent to the facility. Big Bayou Creek is currently used for fishing. In 1989, the State of Kentucky's Division of Water warned against consumption of fish caught from Little Bayou Creek.

Louisiana Army Ammunition Plant Groundwater is contaminated with RDX and TNT. Contaminated soils and sludges have been incinerated but there is the possibility of soil contamination by VOCs, explosives and metals in other areas of the plant.

Maine Loring Air Force Base groundwater on the base is contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as trichloroethylene (TCE), and fuel-related compounds, including benzene and toluene. Soils in the Flightline and Nose Dock Areas contain significant amounts of fuel, oil, polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), PCBs, and various VOCs. Surface water and sediment in the Flightline Drainage Ditch are contaminated with VOCs, PCBs, PAHs, and heavy metals.

 

Brunswick Naval Air Station The Brunswick Naval Air Station, in Brunswick, Sagadahoc County, Maine, encompasses seven areas that were used in the past (beginning in 1942) for the storage or disposal of hazardous wastes.

 

Pesticides, solvents, and waste oils present on the site threaten ground water (including a nearby public well field serving 18,000 people), surface water, and adjacent wetlands.water (including a nearby public well field serving 18,000 people), surface water, and adjacent wetlands.

 

Maryland Curtis Bay Coast Guard Yard soil is contaminated in certain areas with semi-volatile organic compounds, metals, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), pesticides and dioxin.

 

Fort George G. Meade Tetrachloroethylene (PCE), trichloroethylene (TCE), other volatile organic compounds, atrazine and certain pesticides.

 

Why We Should Stop the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant Expansion

Constellation Energy has proposed expanding the Calvert Cliffs nuclear power plant in Maryland. Building a third reactor at Calvert Cliffs would be expensive, threaten public health, and damage the environment.

A third reactor at the Calvert Cliffs nuclear power plant increases the risk of an accident or terrorist attack. An accident or attack at the plant could harm over a million residents in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia.

-   The new reactor at Calvert Cliffs could generate an estimated 1,250 metric tons of radioactive waste during its 40 years of operation. Much of this waste will be stored, at least temporarily, at the site of the reactor, where it would pose an attractive target for a potential terrorist attack.

-   The two existing reactors at Calvert Cliffs have been fined for safety lapses.

-   If the federal nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain is opened, waste from Calvert Cliffs will be transported by rail or truck to Nevada, passing within five miles of 3.1 million people in Maryland.

-   Radioactive Waste Management Associates, a consulting firm working for the state of Nevada, has estimated that 100 to 450 accidents will occur as nuclear waste is transported via train and truck to Yucca Mountain. A single serious accident could cause thousands of cancers and cost billions of dollars.

-   Nationally, 107,500 metric tons of spent nuclear fuel and 22,280 canisters of high-level radioactive waste will be moved to Yucca Mountain over the course of 38 years. The waste would be shipped in casks that would each contain as much as 240 times the amount of radioactive material released by the Hiroshima bomb.

No long-term solution exists to store the highly toxic radioactive waste that the plant generates.

-      The Unites Sates has never had a plan for safe disposal of spent fuel.

-      Radioactive waste generated at nuclear power plants must be guarded and kept from the environment for tens of thousands of years; what amounts to financial eternity. Already, the federal government has spent $58 billion trying to devise a storage solution for nuclear waste from across the country.

-      The Yucca Mountain site is too small and will run out of room before it can take the spent fuel from the power plants already operating around the country. Adding a third unit at Calvert Cliffs means that more waste will be stored, temporarily or permanently, in Maryland.

Massachusetts (Concord from rense.com) The waitress at the ice cream shop in Concord, Massachusetts, was surprised. "A Superfund site?" she asked incredulously. "On Main Street?" It's not just a Superfund site but one dubbed by a cleanup contractor as "near the tip of the peak in terms of [cleanup] difficulty." It's radioactive.

 

Concord, the crucible of the American Revolution, where the "shot heard 'round the world" rang out on April 19, 1775, is a Boston suburb filled with professionals and stately homes. Tourists still come to see the war sites and to visit the bucolic Walden Pond that Thoreau celebrated. Few know about the nuclear waste dump at 2229 Main Street.

 

But this shady burg of 15,000 residents quietly struggles with its legacy as the maker of depleted uranium slugs for the U.S. military's latest wars. The soil more than a mile from the nuclear dump is radioactive. A 1993 epidemiological study found the town's residents suffered higher rates of cancer than the state average.

 

Today, atop and buried beneath a low hill above a cranberry bog lie more than 3,800 barrels of radioactive and toxic waste, subject to a government-paid cleanup estimated to take 10 years and cost at least $50 million. (Continued" http://rense.com/general50/conc.htm).

 

Otis Air National Guard Base (USAF) The Otis Air National Guard Base/Camp Edwards site covers approximately 22,000 acres and is more commonly known as the Massachusetts Military Reservation (MMR). In 1984, the U.S. Geological Survey detected contaminants in monitoring wells downgradient of this former plant. In 1983 and 1984, the Air Force detected volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in on-site monitoring wells near the Base Landfill and a Fire Training Area. The EPA has designated the Sagamore Lens underlying MMR as a sole source aquifer under the Safe Drinking Water Act.

 

Fort Devens-Sudbury Training Annex (USARMY) Volatile organic compounds (VOCs), pesticides, and inorganics above drinking water standards.

 

Hanscom Field/Hanscom Air Force Base (USAF) Groundwater and subsurface soil are contaminated with chlorinated solvents, jet fuel, and other petroleum compounds. People who come into direct contact with or ingest contaminated groundwater or soil may be at risk.

The U.S. Army Toxic and Hazardous Materials Agency (THAMA) had already initiated the first stage of the closure plan, the preliminary assessment/site inspection, which was conducted in 1987. The Army also conducted a soil, sediment, and ground water sampling program in 1988, from which a remedial investigation (RI) report was produced. Subsequently, the Army completed a Draft Phase 1 Remedial Investigation Report in April 1991 and a Phase 2 report in October 1992.

Sampling during these investigations indicated contamination of ground water, soil, surface water, and sediments at MTL. Contaminants detected above background concentrations at the site include volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds, PCBs, pesticides, inorganic elements, and radioactive substances.

Natick Laboratory Army Research, Development, & Engineering Center (USARMY) Soil, groundwater, and surface water are contaminated with various VOCs, naphthalene, Freon 113, and a variety of heavy metals such as barium, mercury, arsenic, copper, chromium, lead, and zinc.

 

Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant (USNAVY) NWIRP has generated or stored wastes at numerous locations throughout its operational history. Hazardous waste disposal was accomplished either through direct discharge to the septic system or through barrel storage and offsite disposal. Wastes generated at the NWIRP include trichlorethylene, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, methyl ethyl ketone, acetone, toluene, xylene, photographic fixer, waste oil and coolants, lacquer thinner, unspecified solvents and thinners, Stoddard solvent, waste paint, and chromic, sulfuric, nitric, hydrochloric and phosphoric acids.

 

South Weymouth Naval Air Station (USNAVY) A site investigation of SWNAS was completed by the Navy in February 1992, and included the installation of 21 ground water monitoring wells around six of nine identified source areas on the property. Soil samples were collected during the installation of these wells, and ground water, surface water, sediment, and soil samples were collected from the vicinity of source areas on the property. Soil samples were found contaminated with volatile organic compounds and heavy metals. Ground water samples collected down from the West Gate Landfill, the Rubble Disposal area, fire fighting training area, and the tile leachfield were contaminated primarily with heavy metals. Eighteen municipal drinking water wells are located within 4 miles of source areas at SWNAS. These wells provide drinking water to approximately 74,000 people. In addition, approximately 85 private drinking water wells located within 4 miles of SWNAS draw from the same aquifer.

 

Fort Devens (USARMY) Fort Devens is participating in the Installation Restoration Program (IRP), established in 1978. IRP studies have identified 46 potential hazardous waste areas including: the 15-acre Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) range, where explosives and unusable munitions have been detonated or burned in open unlined pits since 1979; the 50-acre sanitary landfill, where household wastes, military refuse, asbestos, construction debris, waste oil, and incinerator ash have been dumped since the 1930s; and Building 1650, where battery acids, PCBs, pesticides, and solvents have been stored.

 

Monitoring wells near the sanitary landfill contain cadmium, lead, mercury, iron, and arsenic, according to tests conducted in 1987 by an Army contractor. An estimated 21,700 fort employees and Ayer residents obtain drinking water from wells within 3 miles of the landfill; a Fort Devens well is 1,670 feet from the sanitary landfill.

 

Michigan 5 October 1966
A sodium cooling system malfunction caused a partial core meltdown at Detroit Edison's Enrico Fermi I demonstration breeder reactor near Detroit, Michigan. The incident is documented in John Fuller's http://www.amazon.com/Almost-Lost-Detroit-John-Fuller/dp/0345252667 We Almost Lost Detroit.

 

Rockwell International Corp. (Allegan) (Military Cotractor) Ground water on the site is contaminated with lead, arsenic, cyanide, and 4-methyl-2-pentanone. Private wells downgradient of the plant are contaminated with heavy metals and cyanide. Surface and subsurface soils, groundwater, and sediments in the lagoons and Kalamazoo River were contaminated with VOCs, semi-VOCs, pesticides, PCBs, heavy metals, and polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons.

Minnesota Minnesota has a nuclear waste storage problem. The problem is simply stated: We generate radioactive wastes at our nuclear power plants at Monticello and Prairie Island, but we have no viable plan for long-term storage of that waste. Until another geological repository can be developed, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's plan is to continue to store spent nuclear fuel at the plants where it is generated.

Naval Industrial Reserve Ordnance Plant Groundwater and soil are contaminated by solvents, including TCE and methylene dichloride and PAHs were found in surface soil. Groundwater flows into the Mississippi River, upstream of the Minneapolis drinking water treatment plant uptake.

 

New Brighton/Arden Hills/Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant (US Army) Groundwater, soil, sediments, and surface water contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), semi-VOCs, metals, PCBs, cyanide, pesticides, and explosives.

 

Twin Cities Air Force Reserve Base (Small Arms Range Landfill) Arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, lead, nickel, selenium and vanadium contamination of groundwater.

 

Missouri Lake City Army Ammunition Plant groundwater, soil, and surface water are contaminated with VOCs, various explosives, perchlorates, and heavy metals including lead, arsenic, and chromium.

 

Weldon Spring Former Army Ordnance Works TNT, DNT, and lead have been identified in soil at several areas on the site, and TNT was detected in 1987 in surface water downstream of the lagoons.

 

Weldon Spring Quarry/Plant/Pits (USDOE/USARMY) Wastewater containing sulfonate derivatives contaminated surface water and groundwater. Residues from uranium ore, thorium ore, radium, TNT, and DNT residues.

Forest Service approves Grand Canyon Uranium Mine     June 26, 2012 by gctrust

The U.S. Forest Service announced late Monday that it will allow Denison Mines Corp. to begin excavating the "Canyon Mine" this fall without first updating the 26-year-old environmental impact statement for the uranium mine, located due south of Grand Canyon National Park on the Kaibab National Forest. The Service claims no new public review or analysis is needed because there is no new information or circumstances relevant to its original analysis.

"This mine was and is hugely controversial as it threatens Native American cultural sites, groundwater and ultimately the springs of Grand Canyon, and numerous wildlife species. More http://tinyurl.com/8bh3aso here.

One of the worst radioactive spills in the U.S. history, on July 16, 1979 100 million gallons of radioactive water containing uranium tailings breached into the North Fork of the Puerco River from a tailing pond of a uranium mine owned by Kerr-McGee Company and United Nuclear Corporation. Approximately 1,100 tons of uranium mine waste contaminated 250 acres (1.0 km2) of land and up to 50 miles (80 km) of the Puerco River, traveling into the Little Colorado River as far as the Navajo Indian Reservation. Traces of the spill can still be found today.

Nevada Nevada National InSecurity Site -- Are you ready for this? 30 April 2012, the US government shows once again there is no depths to National hypocrisy.   The former Nevada Test Site gave itself accolades for Environmental Stewardship. The agencies and laboratorises who conducted far more than 1000 above and below ground atom bomb tests above and within $48 billion dollars worth of fresh drinking and farm irrigationwater gave themselves a self-made environmental-stewardship award.

 

Only the Federal Govermnent could permanetly destroy $48 billion dollars worth of water with 900+ billion years of Plutonium and Uranium, Americium and Cesium and give itself an environmental steward award. The depths of the Federal Hypocrisy are here in this propaganda page that obfuscates Las Vegas getting closer and closer to drilling atomically-tainted wells:

 

NNSA Recognizes Labs, Sites for Commitment to Environmental Stewardship

Apr 30, 2012

 

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) today congratulated its national laboratories and sites for achievements in environmental stewardship, awarding a total of 24 Pollution Prevention (P2) Awards for innovative initiatives across the enterprise.

 

The P2 Awards recognize performance in integrating environmental stewardship practices that helps to reduce risk, protect natural resources and enhance site operations.

 

"I applaud the work done at NNSA's sites in finding creative ways to reduce the environmental impact of our work," said NNSA's Deputy Administrator for Defense Programs Don Cook. "

The P2 Award recipients are selected by a panel of judges within NNSA from several NA-10 offices and NNSA Site representatives. End NNSA propaganda.

 

A sea of ancient water tainted by the Cold Waratom bomb tests is creeping deep under the volcanic peaks, dry lake beds and pinyon pine forests covering a vast tract of Nevada. Over 41 years, the federal government detonated 921 nuclear warheads underground at the Nevada Test Site, 75 miles northeast of Las Vegas. Each nuclear explosion deposited a toxic load of radioactivity into the ground and, in some cases, directly into aquifers. ""It is one of the largest resource losses in the country," said Thomas S. Buqo, a Nevada hydrogeologist. "Nobody thought to say, "You are destro
