Top Official: Over 60 million Japanese irradiated by Fukushima — Nuclear Expert: 50,000 sq. miles of Japan highly contaminated… Many millions need to be evacuated… Gov’t has decided to sacrifice them, it’s a serious crime — TV: More than 70% of country contaminated by radiation (VIDEOS)

Interview with nuclear engineer Hiroaki Koide (translation by Prof. Robert Stolz, transcription by Akiko Anson), published Mar 8, 2016 (emphasis added): [Radioactive] material has been dispersed, contaminating Tohoku, Kanto [Tokyo area], and western Japan… [The law says] that absolutely nothing may be removed from a radioactive management area in which the levels exceed 40,000 Becquerels per square meter… [H]ow much area has been contaminated beyond 40,000 Bq/m2… that answer is 140,000 km^2 [54,054 square miles]… Indeed, while centered on Fukushima, parts of Chiba and Tokyo have also been contaminated. The number of people living in what must be called a radiation-controlled area is in the millions, and could exceed ten million… I believe the government has the responsibility to evacuate these entire communities… the government decided to leave them exposed to the real danger of radiation. In my view, Fukushima should be declared inhabitable… but if that were to be done, it would likely bankrupt the countryThey’ve decided to sacrifice people… In my view, this is a serious crime committed by Japan’s ruling elite… [F]undamentally, people must not be forced to live in contaminated areas… First must come complete evacuation… [W]hen it comes to radiation… “removal of contaminants” is impossible… This stuff contaminates everything.

Naoto Kan, former Prime Minister of Japan, Apr 11, 2016 (at 2:15 in): The molten material broke through the pressure vessel and accumulated low down in the containment. Now what would have happened if this molten material had escaped from the containment?… A radius of 250 kilometers — which includes the city of Tokyo — anyone living in this area, if you count them up it comes to 50 million or 40% of the Japanese population, and they would all have had to be evacuated. As we know from Chernobyl, not just a couple of weeks, but 30 years or 40 years — it would have virtually meant the end of Japan. [Note: Many nuclear experts believe the molten fuel did in fact escape from the containment] Half the population was subject to radiation [Japan Population: 127 million]. That’s something that could just be imagined, for instance the event of losing a major war.

Arirang (Gov’t-funded Korean TV network), ‘Fukushima and Its Aftermath’, Mar 16, 2016 (at 6:45 in) — Prof. Kim Ik-Jung, Medical College at Dongguk Univ.: “When you look at the contamination map, about 70% of Japan is contaminated by radiation. That means that 70% of Japan’s agricultural and marine products are contaminated.”… According to PNAS, one of the five major scientific journals, over 70% of the land in Japan is contaminated by radiation.

    Cancer needs to be prevented. There never will be a cure, satisfactory treatment, ever.

    When you understand WHY an organism goes cancerous, you'll get my drift.

    The efforts to cure cancer are useless unless triggers and causes are confronted.

    But don't expect most folks to "get that."

    "Japan Economic Outlook
    April 5, 2016

    The most recent data corroborate that the Japanese economy is far from achieving stable growth as private consumption remains weak and subdued global demand is weighing on imports. In Q4, GDP fell 1.1% over the previous quarter in seasonally adjusted annualized terms (SAAR), which was a tad above the 1.4% drop previously reported. The economic weaknesses observed in 2015 are far from abating and have likely carried into this year. In February, consumer sentiment continued its downward trend and exports contracted for the fifth consecutive month. Moreover, the recent appreciation of the yen promises to further dampen the all-important external sector. "

    Japan is toast.

    No shilling or shellacking of the truth will change that reality.

    Awol nuclear reactor cores will do that to an economy.

    Them's the facts.

    • mrutopian mrutopian

      Nick, capitalism is a ponzi scheme. Without population growth to fuel consumer demand, raise realestate prices and bust unions, it dies. Immigrants legal and illegal are let into Europe and America to fuel the ponzi scheme. The white race reached zero population growth 25 years ago. The Japanese are too racist to let in immigrants. The earth can not sustain exponential population growth. If billions are not to die, we must install a max. income on people of about 15x the min. wage. That is limited capitalism with a flat tax. Then we need socialized medicine and poor farms for the poor. That is what Japan needs and all other countries also, to back down from cannibalism.

    • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

      You see things clearly and actually all these economic numbers are all false and off by a factor 20 points and that is simply due to the rampant inflation occurring behind the scenes and now experienced by all.

      Inflation is a form of controlled hidden theft by those that control the game board from the top down and one reason why we now have 62 people owning more than 3.8 billion humans on this planet.

      It is all a Ponzi Scheme controlled by those that write and enforce your laws..always follow the money.

    Nuclear fallout has helped our immune system phagocytes to wage peace on pathogens.

    Tis nobler to wage peace even at the cost of all life on earth, then to lift a finger against a maniac. Thus the earth was lost

    • Silverlok Silverlok

      After WWII pathogens were systematically exposed to radiation in labs to create rapid die-offs , generation cycling and mutations in those subject populations.

      This process created the super bio-weapons that the U.S. ( and others ) generated and stored.

      There are over one trillion beneficial symbiotic bacterial cells on the surface of human skin. They exist there to help us fight against bacterial and other pathogens that would use us as fuel for their own growth ( the way cancer does; mindlessly killing it's own host in the process). In essence they are the first order interface between human beings and the physical world.

      Millions and millions of human being's pathological and bacteriological symbiotic safety interfaces are now being daily exposed, in the open environment, to the same type of germ warfare experimentation accelerations that created super bio-weapons.

      A trillion bacterial cells per person,one million people ( to be VERY VERY conservative )that's 1,000,000,000,000,000 chances ( at least ) constantly , every minute every day , for the foreseeable future for a toxic mutation to occur in our symbiotic relations.
      it's only a matter of time now.

          Actually recently, Time Is Short gave a couple of links re a proposal for replica façades of the entrance to the antiquated Temple of Baal, to be positioned in Times Square, New York and Trafalgar Square, London. Subsequently, I read that they were not going ahead with its erection in Times Square. However I also came across a report that they were anticipating 1000 temples to Baal, these to be scattered throughout the world.

          Surely not an attempt to personify EVIL.

The courts have ruled donnas opinions to be valid due to her extensive research into the storage of waste. Lots of great info in this one. And it will even mAke you chuckle at the end.

              perhaps there are those that subscribe to sacrifices to BAAL.

              "The Temple was originally dedicated to the Mesopotamian god Ba’al, whose principal
              forms of worship were burning babies alive and bisexual orgies. Symbolizing a major
              religion that challenged Judaism, Ba’al was mentioned in the Bible over 90 times,
              becoming the archetype of worshipping evil."

                "The Temple of Bel (Arabic: معبد بل‎), also known as the Temple of Baal, was an ancient temple located in Palmyra, Syria. The temple, consecrated to the Mesopotamian god Bel, worshipped at Palmyra in triad with the lunar god Aglibol and the sun god Yarhibol, formed the center of religious life in Palmyra and was dedicated in 32 AD.[1][

                On August 31, 2015 the United Nations confirmed the temple's destruction after reviewing satellite imagery, "We can confirm destruction of the main building of the Temple of Bel as well as a row of columns in its immediate vicinity" reported by the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR).[18][4] The BBC issued a video report showing the satellite images and the destruction described by Einar Bjorgo, manager of UN Satellite Imaging (UNOSAT UNITAR).[19]

                The main entrance arch survived the destruction of the temple. The Institute for Digital Archaeology proposed that replicas of this arch be installed in Trafalgar Square, London and Times Square, New York City.[20] It was later decided that instead of the temple's main entrance, the replica would be of part of the Monumental Arch.[21]"

                Silly homage to that which was destroyed.
                And if a person believes the CIA did it.
                The US and allies did.

    Hi all, I wish I could get out here and do more than I've been able to since everything kinda went down wrong for me and my surviving family and the cellphone became the only means of perusal. Even when I can see the tiny screen I still have trouble typing with this thing. I should be back in the saddle and on solid ground again in a couple more months and I apologize for any replies to my posts by my friends that I missed in the meantime. It still feels like the world is on the brink of destruction as much as ever and I've been seeing a lot more death and disease during the last five years than the last fifty I've been alive and while I'm not fool enough to blame it all on Fukushima, I sure as hell wouldn't hesitate to attribute a great deal of the current status of the overall poor general health and shortened life expectancy of humankind as well as the animal kingdom to 311/Fukushima and the rest of the crumbling, faulty, haphazard infrastructure of the corrupt,mismanaged nuclear establishment for the bulk of the continuous stream of horrors people & all living things must deal with in the struggle to live long,healthy, hopefully content, if not happy lives. I've been standing on the ledge for far too long already and it brings me no comfort seeing all of the company I have on either side of me and from where I'm standing peering over the edge the distance to the big splat upon hitting bottom isn't as far as it seemed on March 10,2011:-(

    Busby claims that Fukushima releases are smaller than all bomb testing. On that count (pun intended), I disagree with him. Watch this, from 12:00 on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvEL4J-g5lk

    Also, as was stated by Arnie Gundersen, on this very site, "We've contaminated the biggest source of water on the planet[…] the plant continues to hemorrhage." It will never stop; it's a breeder reactor without any containment. Without ANY containment; an open-air breeder reactor. Bombs fission once, then stop. Breeder reactors are the poison gift that keeps on giving (fun fact: gift is the Norwegian word for poison).

      A 600 pound guy lives on the bottom floor of a fancy apartment building and he can barely walk. His choice of the bottom floor is obvious, since he has limited mobility. He however every Friday night orders 10 Family size pizzas and eats them in one sitting. His toilet becomes clogged every Saturday morning due to those 10 all meat pizzas. He discovers that it is easier for him to simply walk out the front door at 5AM before the Door Porter shows up and take his movements right out side the front door entrance. Heck he has no more clogged toilets to cleanup and finds himself relieved and satisfied as he awaits for the next Friday night feeding frenzy to arrive.

      This goes on for 2 months and the Door Porter and management are puzzled and blame it on the homeless crowd that must be lingering in the area and they try to find all kinds of solutions from putting barriers up to covering the ground with paper for easy cleanup, but none of the solutions work and the pile just moves from place to place each Saturday morning around the font door.

      Finally one of the people notices that in one of the piles a piece of pepperoni and some sausage is visible in the smelly disgusting feces. A moment of sanity as they track down all the near by Pizza parlors investigating who is giving away free Pizza. Soon they discover that a delivery of 10 Pizzas are delivered to the 600 pound man every Friday night and find out his toilet is clogged.

      Do you fix the toilet or stop the Pizzas?

Her hawkish policies are driven by the quest for oil of the capitalists. The blood and deaths of countless innocent civilians are not her concern. The environmental contamination of whole countries and regions are never factored in to the heinous war plans by Clinton and her cronies in the State Department and the Pentagon.

        They have socialism in the UK, but the Queen iand London bankers are pro Nuke, pro BP oil, and the bankers were never successfully challenged when found guilty of scandalous interest rate fixing. The Queen’s uranium mines and greed rule supreme in the UK and the former Commonwealth. BP has destroyed the Gulf of Mexico and other places in the US.

        They have socialism in France, and they have more nuclear power plants per capita than any other country. Areva is constantly responsible for catastrophes at WIPP and Savannah River.

    If the 9.0 earthquake that created a tsunami and nuclear meltdown had no major ill affects outside of said Tsunami and nuclear meltdown…how did a 6.x create such damage today? buildings destroyed, fires…etc.
    I still wonder it they will keep up the idea that an earthquake caused that meltdown…or will the own up to the idea that the nuclear meltdown cause the earthquake and the subsequent tsunami.
    It boggles the mind that this earthquake series today caused so much damage and yet the effects of the 9.0 were minimal at best…save for the destructive nature of the Tsunami.

    Sadly, no matter what the estimates are that people throw out about total Bq for each type of isotope from Fuku, they remain estimates. Each must decide for himself whom to trust, hopefully guided by common sense. Nonetheless, the visual evidence proves that we are looking at a catastrophe. We can believe what we will, but it won't bring the whales back to Maui.

      penny, the point that seems unimportant but over-mentioned is that it doesnt matter how many or how few becquerels you find if you dont know their toxicity.

      What if it was officially determined by experts that Fukushima produced only 1000 Hiroshima bombs of fallout instead of 10,000.

      Would you conclude;

      A) the official experts are wrong or lying
      B) Fukushima is not as bad as we thought
      C) the release estimate is accurate but the toxicity per becquerel is not known or
      D) the extra killing power came from man made k-40?

      IF a fish has died from radiation, the fewer becquerels you find, the more toxic they must have been. Epidemiology is more important than release estimates then, right? The problem is this; nuclear, science and media deny nuclear was the cause. How do you convince the public, or the scientists for that matter, that their toxicity estimates are in error? Call them liars and denialists and have them watch Dunford? Im asking you

      • penny penny

        I would point them to all those low-level toxicity studies that have been bandied about already, Code. I would also, always, question the official (gov't) sources. And follow the evidence, as presented to my own eyes. Also, I did computer modeling in grad school, and know first-hand how fallible it is.

        There is enough proof that nuclear is deadly, that it should be shut down, without needing to re-prove anything. Those who deny the science (the nuclear shills) are lying, period. Do I know how to make them change their minds about being liars? No. I say the debate needs to be taken from the standpoint that the science is determined, and that Sternglass and Hida and their ilk are the go-to experts.

        Maybe I would be happier, or less 'stuck', if I could put aside that the comparisons to Chernobyl are so low… but I can't. But that's just me; others have to make their own choices. To me, that would be an unforgivable betrayal of all the whales, and birds, and everything else, that have died. The missing million people in Japan. The 'Zika' victims.

          By the way, that would be the same truth that I'm trying to defend. Because, like Code, I fully believe that man-made is orders of magnitude more toxic than natural, and that the WHOI and ICRP lies are untenable. Code worked it all out here, I'm content to rely on epidemiological studies. But it's the same endpoint: shut down nuclear. I respect other people's means of going about doing that, but have to follow my own path. Stubborn as a mule, perhaps, but fighting the good fight at least. (cue ninja emoji)

On that basis, I have changed my position; I now believe that man made primordial radiation is doing most of the ocean damage! Thats right, it took some time, but after the 4th reading of AgreenRoad articles on K-40, I finally came around. Man made background radiation dose much more harm than even nuclear meltdowns, simply because there is so much more of it, and now we know its true danger; Half as bad as Cesium!

                  “A direct effect of radioactive cesium on the heart is due to its selective accumulation in the myocardial cells compared to other organs and tissues (Fig. 9 &10). Perhaps it is due to the intensive functioning of the Na+/K+ pump: since Cs-137 is similar to potassium, it is absorbed by cardiomyocytes fairly easily. This process involves the structures of cellular membranes, and this radionuclide interacts with them easily.15 This is accompanied by suppression of a very essential enzyme such as creatine phosphokinase, which is involved in the cellular energetic metabolism: accumulation, transport, and utilization of high energy phosphates. Creatine phosphokinase (CPK) catalyzes the reversible phosphorylation reaction which involves transfer of a phosphate group from adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to creatine and from phosphocreatine to adenosine diphosphate (ADP). 1

                    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                      PJ, you need to add something to the specific activity point. This is why; They dont measure in weight or volume…they measure in radioactivity. So when you ask what would you rather have, you have to qualify it; one speck of C-137 or 10 million times that of the (toxic, as you have pointed out hundreds of times) K-40

                      So specific activity is only part of the reason why background radiation does not cause dead zones. Consider adding chitin…or human bio-concentrators. Actually, thats a good one to research; What in our biology could concentrate cesium…why isnt it evenly dispersed as a salt in the cells of your muscles for example?

                    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                      thanks penny…missing is the mechanism. Is cesium concentrated into hot spots or something, or is it just practically infinitely more toxic than the radiation normally found in the body? What do you suspect? 70 bq/kg constant radiation did no harm until it came from cesium?

                    • penny penny

                      Not sure I understand the question. The Cs (even one atom) is in the heart; it is both toxic and radioactive. Those 70 Bq/kg are from an emitter that has no toxicity whatsoever. In this case, the heart damage is not a long-term effect like cancer, and I assume it's due to the toxicity of Cs. However, the radiation damage from Cs and other man-made isotopes is clearly more damaging than natural, as is proven in multiple studies of the dangers of low-level (man-made) radiation. So it seems we are talking apples and Clockwork Oranges. (Note to self: Why do I keep referencing that movie? I hate it, hate it, hate it!)

                      Thanks Penny. Note that science doesnt consider non radioactive cesium that dangerous

                      The median lethal dose (LD50) value for caesium chloride in mice is 2.3 g per kilogram, which is comparable to the LD50 values of potassium chloride and sodium chloride.

                      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caesium

                      So, at first swivel, one would think we are comparing radioactivity to radioactivity when it comes to cesium 137 and K-40. Its been pointed out to me that C-137 is only twice as bad, in terms of radiation danger. So one would be back to this question; why 70bq/kg (of K-40)didnt hurt anyone until it came from cesium. When looking for answers, remember there are still the unknown unknowns!

                      I know it seems boringly pedantic and unimportant to highlight mainstream science failure on radiation assessment and its continual comparison to background. Oddly for me it seems central to the anti nuclear ramble

                    • penny penny

                      No, I think I spoke cavalierly in saying it was just toxicity; radioactivity does play a role. I found an excellent nuclear site – aipri.blogspot.co.uk – but it's in French. But I intend to post translated excerpts here, because they are wonderfully sarcastic.

                      in Japan the prescribed safe limit for I-131 in vegetables is set at 2,000 Becquerel (Bq) per kilogram and 500 Bq/kg for radioactive cesium.

                      …and i really am going to get back to work… but i just remembered, and wanted to share here, that one thing people tend not to mention in discussing 'toxicity of particle X' is that radioactive man-made particles not only irradiate you, they then become something else that emits, and something else, ad nauseum. So when you talk about Cs in the body you're really talking about all its daughter products, too.

                  au contraire PJ; many times I have said this; Wow, with that huge quantity of background that they keep comparing to fallout, its obvious fallout must be worse than they say and/or background less dangerous. Then I usually give the example everyone can see; the radioactive planet didnt create mass deaths and genomic instability, even after endless generations, but mans radiation has.

                  Now, and to the point; you usually would follow my statement with several more trying to prove that background radiation IS toxic. You often cited the argonne labs paper which tells just how dangerous it is; Half as dangerous per becquerel (standard measurement unit of radiation) than Cesium137

                  So when you say No one on this blog has ever said that nuclear man made radiation isn't billions of times more lethal than background radiation, I can think of two, right off the bat. Thanks for considering the truth of this

                  PS, invoking the specific activity wont help you in this case. We started so long ago talking about the 12,000 bq of radiation naturally in the ocean compared to 12 bq from cesium. Right there you have the ocean being 500 times more dangerous naturally, by your sources. I pointed this out many many times for your consideration…

              what was the other post agreeing with the 10% of Chernobyl? I have been linking to a few papers, notably Busby, (your opinion of that paper; "Busby is WRONG on this one") and Stohl. I am often trying to get people to realize the mainstream science position. Before I was talking about it, I would guess that over half the people here didnt realize the ocean had more background radiation by far then what was released by Fukushima. (Whether man has made that primordial radiation or not is a subject for a another time). Some people thought Woods Hole was flat out lying about it. Others…the majority, dont give a damn because their brains just arent oriented that way.

              Please make no mistake; I have not promoted the idea that Fukushima is 10% of Chernobyl. But what if scientists said so?

                  A) the scientists were flat out lying

                  B) Fukushima is not as bad as we feared (only 2x Chernobyl)

                  C) The release estimate is pretty accurate, but we dont know how toxic the radioisotopes are or how they will interact with the environment

                  D) The estimate was correct but background radiation is adding to the toxicity and that is why the results are more serious than the release estimate

                      That's an interesting paper, but it's not a comprehensive study of the Fukushima accident by any means. The authors took one data set, on one day at one location, and from that ran computational modeling. That (comp.mod.) happens to be what I did in grad school, and I have a healthy scepticism for results thereof (we theoreticians like to joke that anything within a few orders of magnitude is 'precision' – not at all funny in this context). Besides, as we all know, levels have fluctuated wildly, wind direction changes constantly, and various other factors lend to the non-validity of that one study as a "final word analysis" of the severity of the accident. I wouldn't go so far as to hurl a "j'accuse" at the authors, but they are delinquent in overstating the importance of their results. Okay, maybe I would accuse them of worse, given the devastating consequences of inaction in response to Fukushima.

                  Sorry, I mis-read the answers. E) none of the above! The man-made radiation is in a different category entirely. Maybe in your terms, natural is the feminine, nurturing entity whilst man-made is masculine (see how nicely it works out alliteratively and all?)… as i was saying, masculine, kill-happy, dangerous.

                  I am hoping to maintain the position that everyone here operates in good faith, but with a certain obstinacy or inability to play nicely (my problem: obstinacy. Am trying to play nicely; I very much hate conflict and drama and all that). I don't have any problem with watching people tilt at windmills, though, if their intention is good.

                    It seems evident that, as walled-off as the data is and given all the smoke blown by the 'authorities', there would be a certain amount of disagreement here. There is sooo much smoke, in fact, that it seems (to me) equally evident that every effort must be made to avoid confusion.

                    On that ground, I would boo your not having given a likable answer to your above question, Code. Not everyone here is going to get that the deck is stacked against them. In fact, the full answer is more like: "The estimates are ridiculously low; the danger of man-made isotopes is orders of magnitude higher than official sources will admit; the die-offs are proof positive that the accident was far worse than official sources admit AND that man-made is a whole different animal than natural radiation."

We now know these are inevitable byproducts of uranium….
                    “To be more precise, when uranium disintegrates it turns into a substance called protactinium, which is also radioactive. And when that disintegrates it turns into a substance named thorium, which is likewise radioactive. When thorium disintegrates it turns into radium; when radium disintegrates it turns into radon gas. And when radon gas atoms disintegrate, they turn into what are called the "radon daughters", or "radon progeny", of which there are about half a dozen radioactive materials, including polonium….

                    penny, considering the estimate comes from Busby, I would go with answer C

                    C) The release estimate is pretty accurate, but we dont know how toxic the radioisotopes are or how they will interact with the environment.

                    Of course the ECRR gives a better idea of how toxic, not the ICRP…but still we seem to be witnessing more damage than even Busby predicted.

                    I suspect many people here would choose

                    A) the scientists were flat out lying (or simply WRONG, presumably because their expertise was not expert enough)

                    Choice B) (Fukushima is not as bad as we feared; only 2x Chernobyl) was meant to highlight the idea that even if we sort of trust Busby, we cant accurately extrapolate danger from radiation measurements

                    And choice D was meant to address the people who continually point out how dangerous background radiation is (and who posit that so much of it must be man made!)

                    D) The estimate was correct but background radiation is adding to the toxicity and that is why the results are more serious than the release estimate

I don't like linking to that graphic, without giving a full explanation of What's Wrong With It, for that same reason. Too many people, as well, have a vested interest in believing that chart… here:

Its claim is that the deadliness is drastically underestimated, by overestimating the distance its radiation can permeate tissues (i.e., a lot more energy is deposited in a lot less space than the ICRP model accounts for). Unless that's been covered here, and someone can just pull up a link.

                      Sorry if you or others cant follow my lines of thought. I have focused on the contrast of background vs anthropogenic. The exact danger of background is interesting but not essential to the argument; science and media put them in the same category and compare. This I have made a stance on, because its one of the biggest public relation victories of the nuclear industry. Who could miss it? Yet I was the one to point it out. PJ and Dr G and others fought me on it, oddly.

                      You would have me censor mainstream science? Or modify my methods of communication because some of you cant follow, or remain steady in your own view? Sorry, that goes against the fiber of my being sirchasm. Ive already tried to simplify to the best of my ability. What problem do you have with this;

                      "we live in a sea of radiation, the danger was insignificant until man added new radioisotopes" ….BTW, you mistakenly thought that was changing the subject

                      You and Penny, Goodheart and PJ can worry about me being a pro nuke hormesis shill, as I understand you to say. Can I speak frankly? I think it indicates the level or your savvy, your discernment.

                      But the first part is self evident and doesnt need a link. The second part I have made many efforts to explain. I used many links. Did Aristotle nag Plato for links?

                      Cant you name three reasons why a fish could be killed from fallout even though none were detected? Its not a trifling question; the public and scientists assume if theres no detection, there was no damage. Unfortunately its too easy to think that way, and anti nukers can go off the deep end inventing becquerels

The elections are fixed and they go back and forth between a Republican and a Democrat to make it look like the country is divided and everyone is getting a chance to be represented. The truth is that the elections are fixed and it is much easier with the computer voting machines. The truth is, only the elite is represented and they are all globalists.

                  Hitler really was a dictator. But in the US the presidents are just puppets–figureheads to take all the blame for all the criticism. This was patently obvious when the banks (including foreign banks) were bailed out. Absolutely no responsibility required anymore at all for those in power. All the NPPs are run for the military, and no wisdom will ever prevail. Obama is going to pardon Clinton, but she won't be president, because it is on the schedule to have a Republican next, and the US is gender biased.

                    All you have to do is read all the news analysis. They pretend to be clairvoyant or wonderful analysts. But they are really just preparing people so they won't be to angry with the fix has come in.

                      TYPO: they won't be too angry when the fix has come in.

                      If people don't vote, it is not because they don't care or are stupid. Rather, they are too educated to think that the whole process isn't totally corrupt.
