Philippines Typhoon linked to ‘Man-Made’ Microwave Pulses

21st Century Wire: On the Weather Modification Association’s own website, they admit such programs have existed for over 60 years in conjunction with other agencies: “The Weather Modification Association (WMA) was organized in 1950 to cultivate a better understanding of weather modification techniques, impacts, and expectations among program sponsors, program operators, and the scientific community, and to promote ethical professional conduct and a free exchange of information.”

Government installations are already conducting ‘atmospheric heating experiments’ around the globe, including operational centers and radar observation stations in the immediate vicinity of what has been dubbed this week as “the world’s largest ever storm”.

Weather-watcher, Dutchsine, discovers data relating to microwave pulse activity linked to this most recent Typhoon Haiyan (named “Typhoon Yolanda” in the Philippines) event in South East Asia. He also suggests that the storm system known “Zoraida” is also a man-made microwave directed storm.

 

DAILY MAIL: Extreme weather events such as Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines are increasing as a ‘direct result’ of man-made climate change, the Prince of Wales has warned. Charles was speaking at a meeting on tropical forests and climate change, attended by business leaders and forestry experts, at the Royal Society in Central London.

 

 

 

Fukushima fiasco: Tepco's risky removal of radioactive fuel could set off uncontrolled chain reaction

NaturalNews: The Tokyo Electric Power Co. announced it is delaying the relocation of fuel rods from its crippled plant reactors. Work was originally scheduled to begin today due to the fact that fuel rods remain highly vulnerable in the damaged storage pools. Right now, Fukushima is just one earthquake or tidal wave away from structural collapse, causing a catastrophic release of radioactive fuel directly into the atmosphere.

Moving the fuel rods a wildly risky proposition, as the fuel rods must be extricated from their operating matrix containing coolant water and control rods that "smother" runaway nuclear reactions. Absent these safeguards, the removal and transport of fuel rods is inherently hazardous.

"New video footage from a robot has revealed new leaks within the damaged reactors meaning the rods now can't be taken out as planned," reports Euronews. "One of the fuel assemblies was damaged as far back as 1982 when it was mishandled during a transfer and is bent out of shape."

Euronews goes on to quote Kazuaki Matsui, the executive director of Japan's Institute of Applied Energy as saying "It's very difficult to remove a spent rod because parts of the wall and the bottom of the reactor are all melted. We've never had to deal with this before so that adds to the complication."

 

Dairy industry pushing to hide aspartame in new definition of ‘milk’

NaturalNews: In an effort to get more children to drink processed milk, the conventional dairy industry is pushing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to change the very definition of milk to allow for the discreet addition of toxic artificial sweeteners like aspartame. According to a petition filed in the Federal Register earlier this year, the dairy industry’s goal is to change the “standard of identity” for milk so that it can be further modified and sweetened to attract more young consumers.

Whether it is due to increasing allergies or a simple distaste for its processed flavour, conventional milk sales have dropped some 25 percent in the U.S. since 1975, and consumption patterns are continuing to dwindle all across the country. So the National Milk Producers Federation and the International Dairy Foods Association are petitioning to simply redefine the word “milk” to include other things like artificially flavoured and sweetened chocolate and strawberry milk beverages.

 

Millions of children dumbed down and drugged up on Schedule II amphetamines

NaturalNews: There is a silent tragedy taking place, mostly in the USA, as countless millions of children of all ages are being erroneously administered doses of amphetamine class drugs multiple times each day. These drugs are otherwise illegal, schedule II, in the same highly addictive group as cocaine, morphine and opium banned in most of the world. Why are innocent children being medically abused in this way?

In any classroom in America today, there is likely to be one, two or three children who do not behave like normal, happy boys and girls, instead walking with a blank zombie-like stare, unwilling to interact meaningfully with friends and others. These children represent among the worst failures of parents, schools and society towards the young generation, the very future and hope of humanity. In the USA alone, there are over 10 million children being given psychiatric drugs, 1 million under five years of age, some before their first birthday, even as young as 1 month, according to the US Department of Health and Human Services.

 

'Krokodil' Trend Of Flesh-Rotting Drugs Hits UK

Huffington Post UK: Krokodil has already hit headlines for being "the most horrible drug in the world." Branded "cannibal heroin" for literally rotting users from the inside out, it costs £5 a hit on the street and contains a toxic mix of codeine, gasoline, paint thinner, industrial cleaning oil, and alcohol. It is a drug for the poor, and its results are catastrophic.

A user's muscles, tendons and bones can become exposed as the drug eats away at the flesh, while the poisonous concoction causes abscesses and gangrene on the skin – making it look as scaly as that of crocodiles and earning it its name.

Worryingly, it also appears to be spreading, with reports recently emerging that it had left its country of origin, Russia, for the US. Now, experts have warned of a "shift" in the UK that has seen heroin use decline, while another drug widely available in Britain is being cut with substances that have the same "skin-melting" effect as krokodil. Krokodil may not have widely infected the UK yet, but Dr Allan Harris, a specialist in treating drug addicts and the homeless, has said that "there are plenty of warning signs" that it could soon reach our shores. "I've already treated one case and I'm sure that in the coming years I will see more," he warned, speaking to the Huffington Post UK. He claims to have treated one man suffering the tell-tale signs of krokodil use, stating the patient's tissue destruction was "vastly disproportionate," to the wounds caused by injecting heroin.

"He had a huge crater in his arm, where you could actually see the tendons and bone moving at the base. He was never able to use his right arm again – the muscles never grew back because they were completely gangrenous. He died this year." An equally disturbing trend has also escalated, with the "krokodilizing" of the designer drug mephedrone to make it intravenous, leaving users with similarly horrific open wounds and severe skin necrosis.

 

Scientists: We Can’t Do Anything About The Antibiotic-Resistant Superbugs That Will Soon Kill Millions Of Us

Blacklisted News: The “wonder drugs” that we have been using since the middle of the last century are rapidly losing their effectiveness, and medical authorities are warning that the emergence of very powerful antibiotic-resistant superbugs represents “one of the gravest threats in the history of medicine“.  Of course the “wonder drugs” that I am talking about are known today as antibiotics. These drugs attack bacteria, and when they first began to be developed back in the 1950s and 1960s they were hailed as “miracles” that would save countless numbers of lives.  Well, it turns out that nature is having the last laugh.  All over the planet bacteria are developing resistance to these drugs, and scientists are warning that they can’t really do anything to stop these superbugs.

With each passing year these superbugs are gaining ground, and there appears to be not much hope on the horizon of being able to fight them.  In fact, no new classes of antibiotics have been invented since 1987, and none are being developed right now.  Meanwhile, scientists are telling us that many current antibiotic treatments will be completely obsolete by the year 2030.  Are you starting to understand why so many high profile members of the scientific community are using the words “catastrophic threat” to describe this crisis?

 

Sinkhole the size of 20 football pitches opens up in Louisiana ... and it could burst into flames

NJ Newsday Dot Com: A Louisiana sinkhole that has sucked in trees and swamps as it spread to the size of 20 football fields is now at risk of exploding. Residents of Bayou Corne were evacuated a year ago when the sinkhole, which is emitting natural gases, opened up.

The gas exploration company that has been blamed for causing the problem after a mine collapsed, has resorted to digging relief wells to try to disperse the gas. Louisiana state is suing Texas Brine as it tries to recoup $8 million used to deal with the sinkhole, including bringing in a team of scientists. While no homes have yet been sucked in, officials warn that the gases being emitted could ignite, which would leave the Louisiana swamp looking like ’the gates of Hell’.

 

Organic Italian jam found to contain radiation from decades-old Chernobyl accident - what is Fukushima doing to our food supply?

NaturalNews: More than 5,000 jars of organic wild blueberry jam made in Italy have been intercepted and recalled by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government in Japan after multiple batches of the fruit spread tested positive for unacceptable levels of radioactive cesium-137. According to the Japanese news source Shukan Asahi, the blueberries used in the Fiordifrutta brand jam, which originated in Bulgaria, were affected by radiation not from a recent nuclear event like Fukushima but rather from the infamous Chernobyl nuclear disaster of 1986.

This shocking revelation came as officials began tracing the source of the contaminated fruit, which tested as high as 164 becquerels per kilogram of cesium-137, according to the paper. Located some 1,300 kilometers (800 miles) away, the fields where the tainted blueberries were grown somehow came into contact with residual radiation from an accident that took place nearly 30 years ago, illustrating the harrowing long-term effects of nuclear disasters.

 

Turkey tail mushroom studied in U.S. after 30 years of use in cancer treatment in Japan

NaturalNews: The turkey tail (Trametes versicolor) mushroom, named for its colourful wavy stripes, is known for its strong antiviral, antimicrobial and antitumor properties. These properties have been attributed to two polysaccharides, polysaccharide-K (PSK), also known as krestin, and polysaccharide-P (PSP).

The Japanese government approved the use of PSK in the 1980s for treating several types of cancers, and it is currently used along with surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. PSK was shown to significantly extend survival at five years or beyond in cancers of the stomach, colon/rectum, esophagus, nasopharynx and lung (non-small cell types) in Japanese trials since 1970. Polysaccharide-P (PSP) was discovered more recently and has been studied mainly in China. In double-blind trials, PSP significantly extended five-year survival in esophageal cancer patients. PSP significantly improved quality of life, provided substantial pain relief and enhanced immune status in 70-97 percent of patients with cancers of the stomach, esophagus, lung, ovaries and cervix.

Both PSK and PSP boosted immune cell production and alleviated chemotherapy symptoms. Research indicates that PSP may slow the growth of certain tumours and help protect the immune system, particularly from the effects of cancer treatment.

 

The Sun’s bosses issue edict to journalists: reveal your sources

EXARONEWS DOT COM: Reporters on The Sun have reacted with fury after receiving an edict from management to identify their confidential sources. An e-mail to all Sun reporters sent last week by the news editor of the troubled tabloid, Steve Kennedy – and leaked to Exaro – instructed them to name any source who is a “public official” in their expenses claims. The move has alarmed Sun staff because News Corporation, the title’s parent company, has disclosed the identities of a series of confidential sources to the police for their investigation, under ‘Operation Elveden’, into bribery by journalists at its newspaper group in the UK. Some of the confidential sources were not public officials, and some received no payment.

 

Confession: Jury verdict proves CIA killed JFK

Dr Kevin Barrett, Press TV: At least fifty people have been murdered to cover up the CIA's assassination of JFK, as explained in the book ‘Hit List’ by Richard Belzer and David Wayne. A few of them, including Dorothy Kilgallen and Mary Meyer, were journalists or writers who were poised to blow the case wide open. But in the US stealth police state, unlike overt police states, psychological rather than physical means are usually employed to silence serious opposition.

The CIA has covered up the JFK assassination by brainwashing the public into believing “we'll never really know the truth.” To that end, it has spread vast amounts of disinformation, including ludicrous theories that JFK's wife Jackie, or limousine driver William Greer, fired the fatal shots.

The CIA's Operation Mockingbird program, which infiltrates the corporate media and uses it as a brainwashing tool, pushed the term “conspiracy theorist” into widespread circulation to discredit anyone who told the truth about the JFK assassination. The purpose was to frighten people into a psychological state of denial, in which they would say “we'll never know who killed JFK,” rather than facing the simple and obvious fact that the CIA killed JFK. The media mockingbirds endlessly repeat the mantra, “But surely, in a conspiracy as large and complex as you're suggesting, someone would have talked!” They hope the public will not bother to learn that a great many whistleblowers HAVE talked - including some who paid with their lives.

Several people involved in the CIA's assassination of JFK have confessed, including Chauncey Holt, David Sanchez Morales, and even Lyndon Johnson. But the star witness among the confessed JFK assassins is CIA officer E Howard Hunt, who, on 6th February, 1985, was legally found by a jury to have participated in the CIA's assassination of JFK. Hunt resented having been “thrown to the wolves” by the CIA during the Watergate scandal; and he must have deeply resented the way the CIA murdered his wife, and implicitly threatened to keep murdering his other family members, if he refused to take the fall for Watergate. Additionally, Hunt did not appreciate being singled out as a JFK assassin in the public mind, when other CIA personnel had played even more active roles in the assassination than he did. So during the final years of his life, Hunt opened up to his son St. John and told him something approaching the full story of his participation in the CIA's assassination of President John F Kennedy.

Hunt explained to his son that he first learned of the CIA assassination plot against Kennedy at the JM Wave CIA station in Miami, Florida. Several CIA personnel there, including William “Wild Bill” Harvey, asked Hunt to help them develop and perfect the logistics of the assassination operation. After at first expressing reluctance to kill his own Commander-in-Chief, Hunt finally acquiesced and applied his considerable skills as an assassination-orchestrator and overthrower-of-governments to the CIA plot against the President. On 22nd November 1963, Hunt was in Dallas; his role included paying one of the gunmen.

Why did the CIA kill JFK? As Hunt explained, everyone in the CIA loathed President Kennedy, who had left over 1400 CIA mercenaries to be slaughtered or captured during the Bay of Pigs debacle, and who was pushing “treasonous” plans for peace with Cuba, Vietnam, and even the Soviet Union. Additionally, Kennedy was going all out to shut down Israel's nuclear weapons program, trying to end the Federal Reserve's private currency monopoly, and threatening oilmen's profits by ending the depletion allowance. Though the American people loved JFK, America's corrupt elite hated him.

Hunt's confessions, including his handwritten and tape-recorded summaries of his involvement, are supported by a great many independent sources, including Brad Ayers, a CIA man stationed at the Miami JM Wave station prior to the assassination. In his book ‘The Zenith Secret’, Ayers describes the CIA plot against JFK, and names the same names as Hunt.

 

Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars: While many are familiar with the Zapruder film, the footage below is less well known. It shows the Secret Service agent nearest to JFK apparently being told to stand down moments before Kennedy’s assassination in Dealey Plaza 50 years ago today. As the narrator describes, the clip appears to show Secret Service agent Emory Roberts standing up and ordering Donald Lawton and Clint Hill, the two Secret Service bodyguards on either side of the presidential vehicle, to stand down, therefore preventing them from doing their job as human shields to the president. The instruction appears to cause confusion inside the follow up car and most noticeably with Lawton himself, who seems perplexed that he has been called off the vehicle.

The narrator makes the point that the behaviour seems slapdash and bizarre for an agency that sends an advance team a month prior to any location in order to iron out security procedures. Analysis suggests that the absence of the bodyguards ensured that whoever was firing at Kennedy was not obstructed and had a clear shot. During a visit to Tampa four days earlier, Lawton was pictured riding on the right rear bumper of the limousine.

During an October 2013 C-Span interview (28:50), Clint Hill, the Secret Service agent seen on the left hand side of JFK’s car (and the one who subsequently ran after the car and reached out to Jackie Kennedy), claimed that Donald Lawton was actually just going off-duty to eat his lunch, and that he told the other agents, “OK you guys, I am going to lunch, have a good trip.” This explanation hardly seems plausible given the nature of the situation in addition to Lawton’s body language. He clearly shrugs his shoulders and outstretches his arms three times as if baffled at something and asking for answers.

Secret Service agents claimed that it was Kennedy himself who had given an order four days earlier to call off the bodyguards because he wanted to be more accessible to the people, describing the Secret Service agents as “Ivy League Charlatans”. However, Congressman Sam Gibbons, who often rode alongside Kennedy, stated, “I rode with Kennedy every time he rode. I heard no such order.”

 

Politics in Doctor Who

BBC: It is stated in the Jon Pertwee story The Green Death that the Prime Minister's Christian name is Jeremy. In the aftermath of several invasions of London in the late 1960s, the 1970 election produces a hung parliament (conflicting Tory and Socialist policies towards the alien menace drive many voters towards the Liberals and fringe parties).

In this atmosphere, a coalition government, led by Jeremy Thorpe, governs Britain in the early 1970s. However, the alien invasions continue, and with the power crisis caused by the collapse of Global Chemicals, the Government's involvement in the Axonite scandal (The Claws of Axos) and the Operation Golden Age fiasco, which included high ranking figures in the conspiracy (Invasion of the Dinosaurs), the government falls in early 1973, bringing the Labour party, with Shirley Williams as leader, back to power. In the Tom Baker story Terror of the Zygons, who are some of the villains in the 50th anniversary special, 7.50pm Saturday night,  the Brigadier addresses the Prime Minister as 'Madam'.

Dr Matthew Ashton, Politics Dot Co Dot UK: On two occasions the third Doctor visited the faraway planet of Peladon. The first time, January to February 1972, they were mulling over entry into the galactic federation. I don't think anyone could not have noticed the parallels between that and Britain's attempts to joins the EEC. On the Doctor's second visit – March to April 1974, they were in the middle of a labour dispute between the planet's rulers and the miners. It just so happened that a pretty similar one was taking place between the Labour government and the National Union of Miners at the time.

You could even accuse later stories of having a right-wing bias. The Sun Makers during the Tom Baker era (November to December 1977) was about colonists on Pluto who were slowly being suffocated under excessive taxation and bureaucracy. Its writer Robert Holmes had been suffering from his own problems with the Inland Revenue at the time. So as critiques of 1970s Britain went, it was fairly scathing.

The 1980s story Kinda was about imperialism, with a British space-force attempting to colonialise the jungle planet Deva Loka. Just in case anyone didn't pick up on this theme the producer decided to hammer it home by making some of the actors wear pith helmets and speak as if they were in a 1940s war-film. Again, does this really count as left-wing considering the fact that by 1982 almost everyone was against colonialism?

Later in the same decade the series dealt with the thorny issue of video-nasties that were causing a moral panic up and down the nation in Vengeance on Varos (Colin Baker, January 1985). It came to the distinctly un-radical conclusion that using violence on TV to distract a citizenry from its economic problems was a bad thing.

The only Doctor Who story I'd argue that could be considered out and out left-wing would be the Sylvester McCoy tale The Happiness Patrol (November 1988). It's about a planet ruled over by the dictator ‘Helen A’, who forces everyone to be happy all the time.

It doesn't take a genius to work out which prime minister Helen A is meant to be based on (although many have pointed out that the story could also be read as a metaphor for gay rights, coming so soon as it did after the introduction of Clause 28).

If the show promotes anything, it's tolerance, diversity, intellectual curiosity and a willingness to keep an open mind.
