Radioactive Japan

Fukushima Daiichi Plant, Japan

From the Los Angeles Times:

Reporting from Tokyo—

The operator of Japan’s stricken Fukushima nuclear plant said Tuesday that it had found radioactive iodine at 7.5 million times the legal limit in a seawater sample taken near the facility, and government officials imposed a new health limit for radioactivity in fish.

The reading of iodine-131 was recorded Saturday, Tokyo Electric Power Co. said. Another sample taken Monday found the level to be 5 million times the legal limit. The Monday samples also were found to contain radioactive cesium at 1.1 million times the legal limit.

The exact source of the radiation was not immediately clear, though Tepco has said that highly contaminated water has been leaking from a pit near the No. 2 reactor. The utility initially believed that the leak was coming from a crack, but several attempts to seal the crack failed.

If you reside in California, Oregon, Washington, Mexico, Hawaii, or anywhere else in the Pacific (or anyplace that relies on food or water from the Pacific), now would be a good time to be concerned.

 

The Long Con of William Jefferson Clinton: Part II (Way-Back Story)

In Part I, I asserted that former United States President William Jefferson Blythe Clinton is in the midst of a grand scheme to snatch billions of dollars from the African continent, and that his scheme is based on a charade. This charade, though, has some substance to it. This is not all smoke and mirrors. If it were, it would have been exposed at its inception. Nonetheless, the ruse is still alive because the authentic elements of this Long Con are so compelling that one is hard pressed to dismiss them. There really are many, many persons suffering from infectious diseases. These con men and women have established such credibility and goodwill (in recent years), it’s hard to imagine their association with something so inhuman…and yet, here we are.

There is an intergenerational component to this work. And it is of such significance that there needs to be some discussion of this “back story.”

In what can only be described as a coincidence, the wisest business man that John D. Rockefeller ever knew was his advisor, Frederick T. Gates. The New York Times once referred to Gates as “The Man Who Thinks for Rockefeller.” I’ve not been able to divine a relationship between the world’s greatest financial advisor of the 19th century and the wealthiest man of the 21st century. It seems that Frederick’s legacy includes the creation of the Rockefeller Institute, the Rockefeller Foundation and the University of Chicago. He was a minister with a penchant for doing “good things.” Of course, most of this goodwill toward man evolved at at time when the inconquerable John D. needed some public relations help. The nation had grown tired of his name, face, wealth and tactics. It was precisely the work of men like Gates that allowed Rockefeller to leverage the power of the press on his behalf.

The medical work of the Institute, under the leadership of Jewish immigrant and Kentuckian Simon Flexner, was intimately concerned with diseases. In fact, Flexner established himself as a leading pathologist, conducted experiments on behalf of the US government in the Philippines and lived till the ripe old age of 83. Flexner, pictured below with Hideo Noguchi, led the Rockefeller Institute until 1935. (Noguchi , in or about 1912 was charged by several prominent New Yorkers with injected 146 persons (many of them children) with syphilis. The case was settled out of court. Given the Rockefeller’s ownership of the entire nation, it’s unlikely that any other result was have occurred. The New York Times, as is their habit, came down on the side of the Rockefeller Institute and it’s beleaguered Japanese scholar. Noguchi died in Ghana working on a cure for Yellow Fever. Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi has established the Hideo Noguchi Memorial Award for scientists making contributions to medicine in Africa. )

Simon Flexner was born to a large family. He was not the only Flexner child with an interest in medicine, nor was he the only one to have a significant career. In fact, his brother Abraham Flexner studied at The Johns Hopkins University, Harvard University and Berlin. With the assistance of Newark-based retailer Louis Bamberger, Abraham Flexner would direct the Institute for Advanced Study. Bamberger seeded the Institute with $5 million in 1930. The Institute, initially housed at Princeton University, would serve as a home for scientific research (including bio-chemical research on infectious diseases). Flexner and Bamberger established a safe haven for Jewish scientists who were being summarily removed from critical positions in Europe. Albert Einstein worked there. J. Robert Oppenheimer worked there.

Abraham Flexner also wrote The Flexner Report. The full title of the report is “Medical Education in the United States and Canada: A Report to the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. This report in 1910, according to historians, became an influential guide in the reform of medical school education. It’s worth reading. There’s even a section called “The Medical Education of the Negro.” In that section, Abraham Flexner wrote:

“The medical care of the negro race will never be wholly left to negro physicians. Nevertheless, if the negro can be brought to feel a sharp responsibility for the physical integrity of his people, the outlook for their mental and moral improvement will be distinctly brightened. The practice of the negro doctor will be limited to his own race, which in its turn will be cared for better by good negro physicians than by poor white ones. But the physical well-being of the negro is not only of moment to the negro himself. Ten million of them live in close contact with sixty million whites. Not only does the negro himself suffer from hookworm and tuberculosis; he communicates them to his white neighbors, precisely as the ignorant and unfortunate white contaminates him. Self-protection not less than humanity offers weighty counsel in this matter; self-interest seconds philanthropy. The negro must be educated not only for his sake, but for ours. He is, as far as [the] human eye can see, a permanent factor in the nation. He has his rights and due and value as an individual; but he has, besides, the tremendous importance that belongs to a potential source of infection and contagion.”

He continues:

“Of the seven medical schools for negroes in the United States (Howard University, Flint Medical College – New Orleans, Leonard Medical School – Raleigh, NC; Knoxville Medical College; Medical Department of the University of West Tennessee – Memphis; Meharry Medical College – Nashville; National Medical College – Louisville), five are at this moment in no position to make any contribution of value to the solution of the problem above pointed out…They are wasting small sums annually and sending out undisciplined men, whose lack of real training is covered up by the imposing M.D. degree.

Meharry at Nashville and Howard at Washington are worth developing, and until considerably increased benefactions are available, effort will wisely concentrate upon them…The upbuilding of Howard and Meharry will profit the nation much more than the inadequate maintenance of a larger number of schools.”

The ties that bind William Jefferson Clinton and Bill Gates to John D. Rockefeller do not extend merely to the realms of politics and finance. In fact, there are more direct connections inside the science lab – and given the history of the scientists associated most closely with Rockefeller, integrity is always an issue. There was the case of Hideo Noguchi and injections of syphillis, but there was also the case of a young doctor in the employ of the Rockefeller Institute who, in 1931, openly contemplated genocide in Puerto Rico.

Susan Lederer, in the American Literary History journal, describes the case of Cornelius Packard Rhoads. Lederer writes, quoting Rhoads:

“Porto Ricans are beyond doubt the dirtiest, laziest, most degenerate and thievish race of men ever inhabiting this sphere. What the island needs is not public health work but a tidal wave or something totally exterminate the population. I have done my best to further the process of extermination by killing off 8.”

Rhoads, also known as Dusty, was a graduate of Harvard Medical School (1924). Like Noguchi, he was never found guilty of any wrongdoing. Rhoads would later work for the United States Atomic Commission. What makes his case interesting is that his quote was actually found in a letter he’d written to a colleague. The letter was made public by Puerto Rican nationalist leader (and chemical engineer) Pedro Albizu Campos. His mission in Puerto Rico was to provide relief for persons suffering from the debilitating effects of hookworm. According to Lederer, hookworm was the leading cause of death at the time Rhoads and the rest of the Castle Commission ventured to Puerto Rico. It was also a devastating illness in the American South.

Rhoads also threatened to expose wide segments of the population to cancer. He was the beneficiary of a vigorous defense by his colleagues. He was also allowed to leave the island. Certainly the Puerto Ricans lacked sufficient authority or force to detain him. Lederer’s comprehensive coverage bears reading. She states that another Rockefeller Foundation physician George C. Payne lied to investigators about the possibility of transmitting cancer to an unsuspecting population. Payne used a tactic which is still much in evidence today. He suggested the possibility was ludicrous. “In an ironic twist to the cancer transplant story, Rhoads, after his return to the US, pursued the transmissibility of cancer as Ewing’s successor as director of the leading cancer research facility, the New York Memorial-Sloan-Kettering Institute for Cancer Research. In 1954 Rhoads described to the American College of Surgeons how a “hopelessly sick, heroic woman” allowed doctors to “graft living cancer cells under her skin” to demonstrate that “control over cancer can be won through chemicals.”

That sounds a great deal like the case of Hideo Noguchi – all the way down to the undying support of the American media.

More to come in Part III.

 

Iran, Japan and Your Depreciating Dollar

The story that CNN, WaPo, the New York Times are others WILL NOT report is that the nation of Iran has more than one strategy to forestall the spread of the US currency empire. The Iranians have established agreements with Chinese and Japanese firms to sell oil in non-dollar denominated currencies like the euro and the yen.Americans too seldom ask why the dollar continually loses value – and how is it that this depreciation is such good news on Wall Street and such bad news on Main Street.

The United States is willing to go to war over the “right” to enforce transactions in dollars. Saddam Hussein was proof of that. He was not removed from power and killed because he was a dictator or because he invaded Kuwait or because he used American chemical weapons or Iraqi derivatives of those American chemical weapons. He was not removed from power and killed because he was rude to Donald Rumsfeld during “Rummies” last visit to Baghdad. Mr. Hussein is pushing up daisies because he posed a direct economic challenge to currency hegemony of the US. In many circles, this is not news – but in the MSM, this is akin to the “discovery of a UFO.”

American media conglomerates have ignored this compelling aspect of the US-Iraq occupation for several reasons. It is precisely this formulation of the problem which clarifies what many consider a confusing relationship between the US and Saudi Arabia. It is precisely the question of currency hegemony (and oil, as a factor or subset) which defines the US’ economic relationships with China and Japan.

And it is precisely this question, not Israel, which is at the center of the inevitable RECONFLICT in Iran. This will not be the first time the US and Western powers have allied to attack and seize resources in Iran. In fact, these attacks will not cease until a permanent solution has been achieved.

What is the price of a gallon of gasoline? It’s nothing compared to the price of a monopoly on the currency of oil purchases. It’s nothing compared to the price of taxes paid by nation states forced to hold large quantities of a depreciating currency?

Iran has intensified pressure on the falling U.S. dollar by demanding that Japan begin paying for Iranian oil in yen, instead of dollars.
Hojjatollah Ghanimifard, the head of the National Iranian Oil Company, or NIOC, has confirmed the company has asked Japan to open letters of credit in yen in preparation for NOIC issuing oil invoices in Japanese currency.
In April, WND reported Iran successfully pressured China to begin paying for Iranian oil in euros, not dollars.

To date, Iran has not followed up on the announcement that Iran would create an Iranian oil bourse to quote oil in euros, instead of dollars.

Shake Up in Japan

The political and financial leadership of Japan are changing. This appears little more than reshuffling the same band of thieves (suicide watch continues). It is not insignificant that the Attorney General and the Finance Minister in two or the world’s great powers are leaving office at the same time.

clipped from www.bloomberg.com
Aug. 27 (Bloomberg) — Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe
replaced his finance minister and gave the No. 2 post in the
ruling Liberal Democratic Party to ally Taro Aso to rebuild a
party routed in Upper House elections last month.
Abe today reshuffled his Cabinet and top party positions to
win back public trust after three ministers resigned and another
committed suicide over money scandals and inappropriate remarks.
Abe’s approval ratings fell to as low as 22 percent after the
government said it mismanaged 50 million pension records,
possibly resulting in millions of dollars in unpaid benefits.
He appointed Fukushiro Nukaga to replace Finance
Minister Koji Omi. Nobutaka Machimura, 62, becomes foreign
minister, replacing Aso, who takes over as the LDP’s secretary
general.
Nukaga, 63, resigned from two previous government posts
over allegations of bribery. He made no admittance of wrongdoing
at the time and sent a letter of apology

Patrick Buchanan: Three Wars, Three Lies, One Empire

The American Cause website has an article on the causes of World War II which makes points that I never read in my school books. It seems that many of the motive forces for Japan’s military engagements in the 1940’s were set in motion decades earlier. According to Buchanan, ideologies like fascism had nothing to do with the causes of US military engagement in WWII. Interesting.

General Norman Schwarzkopf, in the documentary film “The Final Battle” asserted that the US position with respect to the Japanese was little more than propaganda. Similar attempts at national vilification were introduced prior to this recent engagement in Iraq. Saddam Hussein, former ally and recipient of American chemical weapons (during his 8 year war with Iran), has been assassinated at the behest of his former partners in crime. Are the Chinese next?

Are the current battles in Iraq, Iran, Ethiopia and Sudan the “motive forces” for Chinese military engagement in a decade or two? How long will the Chinese play the energy resource-currency game with the United States?

Commoditized Memories

When I hear the words “Never Forget,” I instinctively think of the Nazi Holocaust to exterminate European Jews during World War II.  My remembrances are specific, but not locked there.  This remembrance triggers recollections of other incidents of “man’s inhumanity to man.”  My recall of those events, however, is a more conscious activity.  It is an active remembering because none of the world’s other genocides have been granted as much currency as that in Nazi Germany. 

I did a quick search for the term using Google and came across this web site for personal reminder software.  The site is NeverForget.net.  I will be interested to know what type of success this firm enjoys.  I am also curious to know if a day will come when they will be forced to change their name. 

These two words have a special significance to millions of people around the world.  Whether you are recalling Maafa (the African Holocaust of Enslavement), the Rape of Nanking, the Trail of Tears, the Bombing of Black Wall Street, “September 11th”, 100 days in Rwanda or the internment of US citizens of Japanese ancestry during World War II, your recollections could come to be associated with this tool for sending birthday cards.

That’s not such a pleasant thought.
