    The lastes article that Tim @salem-news has printed.
    I sent him some links yesterday that I posted here from the fuku-diary.

    He also has been getting, aside from me, some feedback from a few people in Japan that are terribly glad for the rare coverage he is publishing.

    http://www.salem-news.com/articles/august252011/fukushima-media-lies-tk.php

    Thanks to Jebus and Heart for supporting this effortand posting there.
    Jebus you busted Ron Adams !! good for you !! And Tim didn’t let him get by with it either. He ‘gave his his due too’ !

    With all that is happening on a world sizsed scale, and the dis-info that is coming from Japan AND the US msm/lsm, it is extremetly hard to get any info out.

    Tim takes the info I send him and fights for us. I commend him for doing so ! Everyone seems to be totally consumed on the shadow ops in Libya, as it is, indeed a game changer in the area. :(

    Sorry, but meant to add. I sent him that info about the dis-info from Hot Springs and the Nashville Tn Embassy shill article a couple of days ago after posting here.

    I sent his last night some newer stuff and the pic of the mutated eggplant. Wish I would have saved the darn mutant cherry also. :(
    He will probably update soon.. he writes me that he will keep up as long as I keep him informed. Good to have one ally at least. :)

    @Granny M are you familiar with a practice known as fracking? That area in mention has had a tremendous amount of fracking and I have read more than one article in the last couple of weeks that ‘associate’ fracking with quakes ( aka mini quakes )

    One article quoted a ‘scientist’ I guess you would call them.. or geologist possibly, stateing that this area is so ‘non quake zone’ that only 4-5 quakes were expected in 10,000 years.

    This goes into the TEMPCO BIZARRE video area.

    I cannot get the fuku-diary site back up, so you will just have to take my word, or find the post yourselves. It is today, Breaking News.

    The vid has been speeded up… Worker comes out of ‘no-where’, points at the camera and makes facial nuances ( according to poster when must have seen it at a much slower speed)

    But, he does indeed appear, point, appear to be talking,and then disappear, so what poster says..and what is the point of straight arm position, twice that I noticed. Camera check? Camera positioning to later or sooner ‘augment’ video? as has been suggested on a few web sites lately?

    HMMMMMM…

    Raises more questions than there are explanations, at least to me.

      Ah, yes…the fracking… Virginia has 75 Class II wells. I haven’t found a source for their location.
      There is something almost consensus that Arkansas quakes are well related.
      The whole injection well disposal is insane: above or below the source of drinking water? Water is a dynamic system, never stays in one place.

    didn’t close a tab again. this is a cronic problem lasting over a number of years.. sorry to whomever it irritates. far from intentional.

    Granny M In Ark. there were mini-quakes happening quite often early this last Spring.
    There were fracking on a large scale N. and a bit E of Little Rock ( if memory serves of location). A neighbor from Hot Springs and I keep in close touch. One day they came home from shopping and a mini-quake had happened and their washer water feed line came slightly askew and they had minor flooding in the basement.

    Three days later, she was sitting in her living room and even tho she did not feel anything such as a tremor of notice, a couple of pictures fell from her wall, where they had been hanging for 17 years.

    Local citizens in the fracking area, hopefully say the Doc. Gasland and began to question all the mini-quakes. They formed a group, insisted on a town hall meeting and an injunction to stop said fracking untill further studies could be done. No more mini-quakes since it stopped.

    • I published and article on that when it was happening, (“Arkansas is Rockin”)(beforeitsnews) there were about 600 quakes (many more after article) in a short time, with copy&past of events with a link to page !

        Sure isn’t any problem with being ‘without clothing’ we were born that way.

        Trying to keep the electic bill low,and save on water consumption, I lauder early in the a.m. before the air and pool come on, or late in the evening/night for the same reason.

        I sure wish the money hungry people of the US would make solar more affordable. As it is today, we would not see it ‘pay for itself’ untill at least 7 years..

        I’m 65. Do I have 7+ years to play with hoping to see savings? They are doing solar in Bangladsesh ( sp ) .. if they can do it, then why can’t the ‘moneychangers’ do it less expensively here? I would jump on it in a minute. Have wanted to go solar for years, but it helps alot to be in an area like I am now where it is sooooo darn sunny that you wish for a cloudy day. :)

            Lucky! I have four cats; one’s mostly outdoors, but I’ve been bringing him in at night since he was sick. He’s a stray and a big guy (maine coon or norwegian mix) that the vet says is healthy. Nice looking cat with Cleopatra-like eyes that likes to be your companion outdoors, following you around and hiking in the woods with you. lol! This kind of reads like a personal ad.

            A cat shrouded in mystery, akin to the cait sidje Scottish legend, about a wild cat emerging from the woods. j/k! But you have to wonder why someone would get rid of such a nice looking cat.

      • Uranium-238, the most prevalent isotope in uranium ore, has a half-life of about 4.5 billion years; that is, half the atoms in any sample will decay in that amount of time.

        Uranium-238 decays by alpha emission into thorium-234, which itself decays by beta emission to protactinium-234, which decays by beta emission to uranium-234, and so on. The various decay products, (sometimes referred to as “progeny” or “daughters”) form a series starting at uranium-238.

        After several more alpha and beta decays, the series ends with the stable isotope lead-206.

        Also, Uranium acts as a radiation magnifier, making surrounding radiation worse.

          Nuclear Radiation and its Biological Effects
          “ After fissioning, the fuel rods are said to be `spent’. They contain the greatest concentration of radioactivity of any material on the planet earth — many hundreds of thousands of times the concentration in granite or even in uranium mill tailings (waste). The spent fuel rods contain gamma radiation emitters (which are similar to X-ray emitters) so they must not only be isolated from the biosphere, but they must also be shielded with water and thick lead walls. Direct human exposure to spent fuel rods means certain death….
          “In the far-distant future, all the long-lived radioactive material, even that now stored and trapped, will mix with the biosphere unless each generation repackages it. Our planet earth is designed to recycle everything….
          “Radiation damage can cause the cell to produce a slightly different hormone or enzyme than it was originally designed to produce, still leaving it able to reproduce other cells capable of generating this same altered hormone or enzyme. In time there may be millions of such altered cells. This latter mechanism, called biological magnification, can cause some of the chronic diseases and changes we usually associate with old age. One very specific mutation which can occur within the cell is the destruction of the cell’s mechanism for resting which normally causes it to cease reproductive activities after cell division. This inability to rest results in a runaway proliferation of cells in one place, which, if not destroyed, will form a tumour, either benign or malignant. The abnormal proliferation of white blood cells is characteristic of leukaemia; red blood cell proliferation results in what is called polycythemia vera….”

      What is done, is done.

      The horribleness is beyond question, and staring us in the face. Truth hurts, and it’s going to hurt a lot more as time goes on.

      Some may have twigged on to some reports of radiation “spreading”. Well, it’s doing the same thing in North America, and beyond.

      No way out.

    Gecko, Frog and Mosquito population collapse

    Geckos, small garden frogs and mosquitoes have disappeared in our area. Highly irregular.

    Are disappearances representative of reptile, amphibian and insect population collapse?

    Could this be the effect of increasing radioactive contamination? Could the fallout cause fertility declines to the point of population collapse ?

    Why no mosquitoes? Not that I mind.
    The only gecko I see lately is on TV.

      Aquatic Fleas’ To the Rescue of World’s Amphibians

      By IBTimes Staff Reporter | August 27, 2011 10:44 PM EDT

      Researchers at the Oregon State University have discovered a freshwater organism that might be the key to fight a fungus, which is the principal cause for the worldwide amphibian decline.

      A freshwater species of zooplankton, called Daphnia magna, could provide a desperately needed tool for biological control of the deadly fungus whose impact, one researcher has called, “the most spectacular loss of vertebrate biodiversity due to disease in recorded history.”

      Daphnia magna is a variety of water fleas of the genus Daphnia, some species of which are commonly used as food for aquarium fish.

      It was known that the zooplankton could devour some types of fungi. Oregon researchers wanted to find out whether Daphnia magna could also consume the chytrid fungus that’s been devastating amphibian populations worldwide, including Colorado’s endangered boreal toad. Through extensive research, scientists confirmed that Daphnia magna could consume the free swimming pores of the fungal pathogen….

    Geckos are wonderufl things. Natural palmetto eaters/ German Cockroach also.

    They were in abundance years ago when I lived in S. Miami, but I don’t see alot here. But, unlike S. Fl. this area is almost like the one year I lived in Vegas. An almost desert. I can’t believe it rains so rarely here.

    I have to play “well games” only using it as little as possible and diciding who needs water the most. Things/ plants are suffering.. I am looking more into perrinials that can stand extreme heat and little water. I would never have thought that of this area of the country. We are almost straight across from where we used to live in La. and we ‘used to get’ rain almost ever day in the afternoon.

    That doesn’t even happen in La. anymore. My DH’s son has a fising lure/bait business, it is so dry there that they are suffering from the lack of people fishing because the water is lacking. This is unheard of in that area of the nation, untill recently.

    Again, I hate to say…. HAARP..
    dutch had a vid, I think I posted it here of the Irene over-hype and he clearly showed a HAARP ring where they were augmenting the intensity. He can not predict whether is is positive or negative, but it was clear to see the ring and evident it was not a ‘natural occurance’ , hence, DC and other surrounding areas didn’t get hit like projected.

    Got an email from my friend in NJ.. No power, backup generator.. alot of water, trees falling all over the place and 400,000 without electric in NJ.. Meanwhile, over the bay, NY was in much better shape. Makes one wonder. :)

    Peace out.

          For instance, to me, fabricating a human-like creature that can do so much damage to its surroundings and other creatures, is, for lack of a better word, a disaster.

          I think God agrees, and has decided to end the whole thing, in this realm at least.

          God also exists in the dream world, so all is not dead, just the physical one. You can see from the New Testament that most of His most poignant messages come through that way – through dreams.

      I’ve already come to conclude that it’s only a matter of time…some nuclear accident/incident will be the end of us someday, maybe sooner, maybe later, but it’s got to be how it all ends.

      I conclude this because of the response to Fukushima; if the government, the media and the masses can be this complacent about something so horrendous, there is no stopping the folly of nuclear weapons, and energy. People just don’t seem to care enough, and a few activists can’t make up for the lack.

      Regardless, I will do what I can to oppose nuclear with whatever I can do. So if Fukushima isn’t the end, maybe it’s possible that something can change.

      But what I see is that climate change(or whatever you want to call it) is adding to the many risk factors already inherent in nuclear power, thus my conclusion that it’s only a matter of time…

    DNA and Mitochondrial Time Bombs: Uranium and Mercury
    By Dr. Mark Sircus Ac., OMD

    “’Depleted (DU) uranium is highly toxic to humans, both chemically as a heavy metal and radiologically as an alpha particle emitter, which is very dangerous when taken internally,’ writes Dr. Rosalie Bertell, Canadian Epidemiologist. A new study, conducted by biochemist Dr. Diane Stearns at Northern Arizona University confirms that, separate from any radiation risks, cells exposed to uranium will bond with the metal chemically. Uranium and phosphate have a strong chemical affinity for each other and the DNA and Mitochondria are loaded with phosphate so uranium is a DNA and Mitochondria deep penetration bomb. The uranium is attacking on fundamental cellular levels while mercury offers a knock out punch by attacking the sulfur bonds besides being highly toxic to nerve cells….
    “Both mercury and uranium oxide are floating in the environment like invisible clouds that have spread out everywhere. They are raining down on us, damaging and damning our future.

    “Simultaneous exposure to mercury and uranium shows markedly increased damage to the kidneys than when exposure is to each metal singly. Insulin has three sulfur-containing cross-linkages and the insulin receptor has a tyrosine kinase-containing sulfur bond, which are the preferred targets for binding by both mercury and lead. Should mercury attach to one of these three sulfur bonds it will interfere with the normal biological function of the insulin molecule. Nephrotoxicity of the kidneys with necrosis of proxim….”

      The whole issue of depleted uranium absolutely breaks my heart; it’s hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that this is actually happening, without any outrage or even information about it…how can we literally nuke a country without the general public knowing?

      I know, do it without a bomb dropping, kind of like a nuclear accident which is actually worse than 168 (or more) Hiroshima bombs, but which gets less media attention…

      I guess if it’s not a bomb it doesn’t matter…

    { off nucler altogehter, or maybe not? }

    Manipulation of information/ memes / political propoganda / shills and trolls via Karl Rove Anonymous leaked email.
    All politics/ right, left, whatever have an agenda and use whatever means to get to their goal.

    I was routed to this article from the Anon Press site.
    http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/08/27/1010778/-BREAKING:-Leaked-Rove-email-singles-out-Daily-Kos

    enlightening at very least. Don’t get me wrong, I am fully aware they both do it, and major personal interst groups/ corps/ nuclear/ etc. We have all seen this in action frequenting ‘chat boards’.
    Peace out.

    p.s. I hate to go to ‘Fluffington Post’ they dump crap every 10 seconds or so.. puter is set to hear it. Infuriates me.

      There should be a task chart of assignment to check FluffPo cuz every once in awhile there is substance there. If enough peeps signed up, would only have to look at it say once a year.

    The only Jews that survived where the ones who fled IN TIME OUT OF HARMS WAY ant the ones who where left over, after the genocite was stopped.
    The alarmed Jew tried to convince others, but they laughed it of calling him ‘alarmist, paranoid, crazy, obsessed……surely this things can not be happening in their time, in their life, after all the Government where not phsychotic criminals. when things became obvious it was to late to even hide in re-envorced basements and how long could they survive anyway on their supplies? Eventually one of thier last thoughts was “we should have listened” and FLED to somewhere SAFE !!!!!!!!!
    ……and then the surviving Jews created a Jewish heaven and called it Israel (sorry poor Palestinians)

    Listening now to Rense and Yoichi Shimatsu. Yoichi says Hiroshima bomb had 800 milligrams of enriched uranium and that is 1/2 of a single fuel rod. He wondered how many Fukushima fuel rods (I figured 1.9 million in past estimations).

    Laughing about the government saying Fukushima will be the dumping repository because even Mongolia will not accept the waste.

    Talking about corium dangers.. Big cracks in the ground 20 meters deep workers are scared to fall in.

      Talking about the insanity of incinerating radiation floating acrosd the ocean. No talk of filtering according to Yoichi… Big fires of rice straw in the open.

        Yoichi: “bad ideas on filtering water…minister of industry and trade cried to Yoichi about poor practices the Japanese are rushing into that will be disastrous within 2 years. Beyond alarming says Yoichi

      Yoichi also was speculating whether the plant was more than just a MOX plant… Perhaps a MOX enrichment plant. Mainly because of the strange and unexplained building blasts.

    This may have been posted before, it is a recoreded video from Link TV concerning Chernobyl and is fairly short.

    It dispells all that the Japanese and US govts. are saying about the Radiation in Japan and even what we are seeing in areas in the US.

    The Russian man is very adament in saying that the radiation damage lasts much longer.. he asks WHY do other nations insist on NOT referring to all the volumes of info collected by the Russians on this subject ? He gives some very alarming statistics,, even as far as Sweden, Germany, England, even yet today of everything from damaged chromozone damage, lower IQs, early aging, and of course the worser damage we know from Chernoby.

    One things toward the end, is even today, all these years later, in Germany wild boars are hunted and have to be checked for radiation. If Radioactive, the hunters get a bounty reward. Chernobyl was 1986.. and the wild boars still have radiation in Germany? DAM.

    Quite a good video, highly recommended if you have not already seen it. Only 11.27 min.

    I found this 3 part video also. It is Australian doc style talking about Fuki and what happened there.

    Again, this may have been posted before. You Tube user reddawn1563, this user also has a series at their channel of Three Mile Island vids, I will watch those another earlier day.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dc-NMVq1W4s
    part 2 and 3 in right margin.

    I went earlier to Australian Cannonball’s blog and he has the slowed down version of the ‘angry’ many on the catwalk which gives a different feel to it , more anger, almost accusatory attitude, and that started this video watch fest. :)

    http://australiancannonball.com/

    He has some other videos on the blog also.

    Peace out.

    Smart – may have saved lives, may have avoided the mind boggling scenario of evacuating NYC.
