NHK Nuclear Watch: US View on Fukushima Daiichi, July 2, 2014 (at 2:00 in):

  • NHK: Experts say that one of the most difficult challenges of decommissioning the plant is removing fuel debris… And Magwood says that there is no magic wand to wipeout this problem.
  • William Magwood, US Nuclear Regulatory Commission: I think people have to be realistic how difficult this is, how long it’s going to take. During my visit to Japan this week, people have asked me from time to time, “Are there technologies in the US that can help solve this problem?” The reality is there is no technology that exists anywhere to solve this problem.

Modern Marvels, History Channel (at 11:30 in):

  • Narrator: With the [water] pumps off, the core is being uncovered and its temperature is over 2,000 degrees and rising. When the core reaches 5,000 degrees it will melt, becoming a molten mass — metallic lava that will burn through the 8 inch steel containment vessel. Once out of the plant it will scorch into the earth itself. What happens next could become an unrivaled technological disaster.
  • Wilborn Hampton, New York Times reporter: They reach the water table, it will immediately turn to steam, boiling steam. There will be geysers of radioactivity steam shooting up in parking lots and driveways and streets and houses for miles around.
  • Narrator: The nightmare scenario is known as the ‘China Syndrome’. Land surrounding the plant will become uninhabitable. A study some years earlier has suggested upwards of 40,000 people could die if the ‘China Syndrome’ becomes reality.

        TPTB decide who will be the appointed president. They have already decided the next one, and probably the one after that. These criminal presidents are groomed for years for the job. I think they have picked Hillary. The dumbed down public will believe and accept that it is now time for a women to be commander in chief. Who knows, Opra Winfrey may play into this.

        If you haven't watched "Clinton Chronicles full Movie (Documentary)" I suggest you do. It will blow your mind.
        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7s_xEoeufs

        There are others videos just as damming such as the Mena Connection, Whitewater and the Clinton Murders.

        The truth is these presidents, Clintons, Bushs, Obama are mass murderers and traitors to the highest degree. There is no two party system, they all take their orders from the same psychopaths. The public lives in never never land and are the walking dead that will trade their freedom for security at the drop of a hat, but will get neither. The celebration of July 4th in this state of current affairs is the insanity of it all.

              There is no way I will ever vote for Jeb Bush. No way I can vote for nuclear energy or fracking which is a vote to kill my children. But then I don't run the world. I'll still be campaigning for Dr. Jill Stein and the Green Party. The PTB seem to switch the parties winning to make us believe that there is change. Although in my opinion a Republic is a change for the worse. In my opinion, Obama is really a Republican.

              • itsanuclearwar

                Yea you may be right with another Bush. Doesn't really matter who gets the nod, we all lose and in all regards. Obama is Bush on steroids. The party changed but the policies did not.

              • itsanuclearwar

                Presidential debates where only 2 parties can debate on the national stage on prime time television with the other candidates arrested for trying to get on stage. I will not show my support of the criminal elections by voting. Casting a vote is submitting to their system and encouraging others to participate.

                • itsanuclearwar

                  The way I understand it is the country went bankrupt in 1933. We have not been living under the constitution since and the president is the president of not a country but of a corporation. This would explain a foreigner like Obumer getting the job. Since 1933, every president has declared that we are in a state of emergency which gives them the power to decide law using executive orders and or presidential directives (same thing but with various names)which bypass Congress. One thing for certain, all of the criminal commander in chiefs are totally above the law and continue to abuse that fact to the extreme.

                    The Trinity of Global Empire

                    By Matthew D. Jarvie

                    December 22, 2008

                    SovereignSentience.blogspot.com

                    There are three cities (city-states) across this planet that share striking similarities and play a crucial role in the global governmental system we have long been living under. The three city-states (along with the role they serve) is as follows:

                    City of London (finance)

                    Washington DC (military)

                    Vatican City (religion)

                    The aforementioned city-states listed above are sovereign, corporate entities not connected to the nations they appear to be part of. In other words, the City of London (that is the square mile within Greater London) is not technically part of Greater London or England, just as Vatican City is not part of Rome or Italy. Likewise, Washington DC is not part of the United States that it controls.

                    These sovereign, corporate entities have their own laws and their own identities. They also have their own flags. Seen below is the flag of Washington DC. Note the three stars, representing the trinity of these three city-states, also known as the Empire of the City. (There is also high esoteric significance to the number 3.)

                    continued

                    • itsanuclearwar

                      Washington DC was established as a city-state in 1871 with the passage of the Act of 1871, which officially established the United States as a corporation under the rule of Washington, which itself is subservient to the City of London. Corporations are run by presidents, which is why we call the person perceived to hold the highest seat of power in the land “the president.” The fact is the president is nothing more than a figurehead for the central bankers and transnational corporations (both of which themselves are controlled by High Ecclesiastic Freemasonry) that really control this country and ultimately call the shots.

                      Washington DC operates under a system of Roman Law and outside of the limitations established by the US Constitution. Therefore, it should not be a surprise that the name Capitol Hill derives from Capitoline Hill, which was the seat of government for the Roman Empire. If you look at the wall behind the podium in the House of Representatives, you will notice that on either side of the US flag is the depiction of bundles of sticks tied together with an axe. These are called fasci, hence the root word of fascism. This was the symbol of fascism in the Roman Empire, as it was under the Nazis and still is today. It is not a coincidence that these symbols are featured on the floor of Congress.

    Any American who thinks they are living in a free country does not have a clue.

    The fact is that the United States corporation is controlled from the City of London, by the Crown, which is not the British Monarchy as many believe, but rather the private corporation that is the inner ‘City of London’ itself, also commonly known as “The City” or “The Square Mile.” This square mile that makes up the center of Greater London has its own mayor, laws, courts, flag, police force and newspaper. It is the heart of the global financial system.

    Vatican City also has its own mayor (called the Governatorate), laws, flag, postal service, newspaper, radio and television stations, and even its own prison.

    Another thing these three city-states have in common are their own obelisks. Obelisks are tall, four-sided shafts of stone which taper at the top in a pyramidal fashion. The obelisk is phallic in its appearance and represents the male penis. It is symbolic of the Egyptian sun god, Ra, and is an ancient symbol of male energy and generation (G) in Freemasonry.

    Vatican obelisk: Located in St. Peter’s Square, the Vatican obelisk was moved from Egypt to its current location in 1586. The circle at the base on the obelisk represents the female vagina and thus male/female duality. Also notice the lines extending from the circle, forming a Union Jack as seen on the British flag.

      Here is the link,as there is more, but this is how it concludes.
      http://inpursuitofhappiness.wordpress.com/2009/01/13/the-trinity-of-global-empire/

      Most Americans (and people in general) believe the US declared independence from Britain when this is simply not the case. Of the signatories to the Declaration of Independence, at least five of them were Temple Bar attorneys, all of whom had sworn allegiance to the Crown. Alexander Hamilton was one of the Middle Crown agents during the formation of the US and was assigned to set up the American banking system on orders from the Crown, to control the United States. In fact a ‘State’ is a legal entity of the Crown. This is why we also have the STATE of Israel.Furthermore, of the members of the Constitutional Convention that signed the completed US Constitution, seven were Middle Inn Templars who had also pledged allegiance to the Crown. Therefore, it is no coincidence that today copies of both the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution hang on the wall in the library of of the Middle Temple in London.

      To put it all in context, it is the Crown that controls the global financial system and runs the governments of all Commonwealth countries, and many non-Commonwealth ‘Western’ nations as well. The Crown traces back to the Vatican, which is headed by the Pope, who is the figurehead for the real powers that be behind the curtain, some of which are known but many of which are completely unknown to the general public.

        England isn't Catholic since 1534. Most Americans are not Catholic either.

        “…The churches of the Anglican Communion have their historical roots in the English Reformation, when King Henry VIII (r. 1509-1547) wished to obtain a divorce that the pope would not grant. Through the Act of Supremacy of 1534, the king made himself the "supreme head" of the Church of England in place of the Pope….”

        • itsanuclearwar

          Speaking of religion, I would like to know what you think about the obelisk in the center of each of the three city states. Especially in the Vatican, where it is in the direct center. I would say that it is more than just odd. A whole lot more. Can you explain that away?

        • itsanuclearwar

          Catholic or not Catholic, what does that have to do with the price of tea in China? Or anything that I have posted? Why do I feel like I have been ambushed? Why do I feel like some people want to conceal certain truths about TPTB?

          Again, can you explain or refute the obelisks as stated above:

          "Another thing these three city-states have in common are their own obelisks. Obelisks are tall, four-sided shafts of stone which taper at the top in a pyramidal fashion. The obelisk is phallic in its appearance and represents the male penis. It is symbolic of the Egyptian sun god, Ra, and is an ancient symbol of male energy and generation (G) in Freemasonry.

        The Price They Paid
        http://www.connecticutsar.org/articles/price_paid.htm

        There are no titles in the US, no royalty, no lords or ladies, no king or queen. The Senate is elected in the US, not appointed as in England. The US has no parlimentary election of a prime minister as in England. The president is elected directly by the people and cannot serve more than 8 years. The elections are held every certain number of years, not when a parliamentary coalition collapses.

        The US is not ruled by anyone in England and is not ruled by the London bankers.

        • itsanuclearwar

          You stated "The president is elected directly by the people and cannot serve more than 8 years". Do you actually believe this. The people do not elect the president directly nor indirectly.

          Furthermore, where did you come up with all that stuff about parliamentary coalition collapses as relating to the US. Are you just making things up as you go?

          How about refuting something that is in one of my posts above? MISDIRECTION at it's best. Seems that everything you posted in reply to my post is misdirection.

          Can you refute what is claimed about the Act of 1871, which officially established the United States as a corporation under the rule of Washington, which itself is subservient to the City of London. I'm talking about the Act of 1871 itself, no spin offs.

        Here are a list of the British Commonwealth nations. As you can see, the USA is not one of them.

          Now the real world, it "is called the Empire of the City. The Empire of the City actually consists of three cities, which belong to no nation or state and pay no taxes: Vatican City, the City of London ([inside] London), and Washington DC. Vatican City controls the world through religion, the City of London controls the world through currency, and Washington DC controls the world through force."

          Do you think they are going to tell the truth? This is the truth no matter what you say otherwise. Here is a little more truth. "There is an entity that is actively taking over the world right now. Some call it the New World Order, which was so fondly spoken of by Bush Sr. The signs of the New World Order are everywhere. Corporations bear their symbols, and so do our money (“Novus Ordo Seclorum”, the “New Order of the World”). It is not just our American money, but money in Europe and scattered all over the world as well. Globalist thinking is also encouraged throughout the NWO “nations” by means of propaganda, and the people of these “nations” are kept apathetic and ignorant by a complex system of control."

          And with your library skills, it is hard for me to imagine that you are not aware of the truth. And yes it is a complex system of control that is keeping most of the people apathetic and ignorant.

  • Good news: the uranium sector is not doing well – [in Australia only?]

    Comment: Abbott and Abe should be talking about Fukushima
    http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2014/07/07/comment-abbott-and-abe-should-be-talking-about-fukushima

    "Aptly enough, the Australian uranium sector has been hard hit by the market fallout from Fukushima and low uranium prices have seen existing uranium mines close down. New uranium mining projects are being delayed and the sector is in serious trouble."

    […]

    "Australia also continues to uncritically supply our existing uranium customers, despite evidence of unsafe practices in countries like South Korea. Our yellowcake deal with Russia also deserves greater scrutiny, especially in the light of escalating tensions in Ukraine, as the International Atomic Energy Agency has not carried out any inspections there since at least 2001. We aggressively push new uranium deals to countries like India, whose nuclear industry has been called unsafe by its own auditor general, and which point blank refuses to sign the global nuclear non-proliferation treaty."
