Indian Government Files Biopiracy Lawsuit Against Monsanto

Representing one of the most agriculturally bio-diverse nations in the world, India has become a primary target for biotechnology companies like Monsanto and Cargill to spread their genetically-modified (GM) crops into new markets. However, a recent France 24 report explains that the Indian government has decided to take an offensive approach against this attempted agricultural takeover by suing Monsanto for "biopiracy," accusing the company of stealing India's indigenous plants in order to re-engineer them into patented varieties.

Brinjal, also known in Western nations as eggplant, is a native Indian crop for which there are roughly 2,500 different unique varieties. Millions of Indian farmers grow brinjal, which is used in a variety of Indian food dishes, and the country grows more than a quarter of the world's overall supply of the vegetable.

The European Debt Crisis: The Creditors are America's "Too Big to Fail" Wall Street Banksters by Bob Chapman

The European Debt Crisis: The Creditors are America's "Too Big to Fail" Wall Street Banksters

Let Your Hearts Dance

You all participate in these lies for your own profit as your quality of living within the community continues to deteriorate. A price has been put upon every means of help as if there can be a price for the kindness that emanates from the human heart. This is as natural as the sun rising and setting or the ebb and flow of the tides. When man again comes to his senses and looks upon the other with concern rather than the gaze of a hunter staking his prey, then a new day will surely dawn on your planet. The sun will rise within the human heart and the warmth of these hearts will be a healing balm upon your land. Until this day, your world will continue to be the dark, fearful place that all have allowed it to remain. A great courage and faith is now called for. The strength and love that emanates from the human spirit, that emanates from the human heart, that connects one to the other, that connects one to the other in a true concern and caring for the welfare of the other. This is a direction that is quite possible in the world of humanity to come. For it will take some time in the structure that you call time and a great and genuine willingness on the part of many. We ask that you look upon each other with the love that is like the love of a child combined with the strength and wisdom of one whom has spent many years in human form.

M.N. Hopkins

There is much truth in this video. I would only make one correction and that would be to allow your heart to dance you into a new way of living. The more that join in the hearts dance of joy, the weaker will become those of dark determination who manipulate our communities for their own selfish purposes.

Slavery is self imposed in my view and one just must decide for oneself what price that one is willing to pay for one's freedom. One day, a better way is shown us all and it's up to us in our human communities to decide the direction that we will take jointly.

It is the heart that is the great connector that connects us to each other, to the Earth and to God, in whatever form you imagine That to be.

United States of Europe - A Total Disgrace, Collapsing As We Speak.

The British Parliament has voted overwhelmingly against holding a referendum on leaving the European Union. A petition of over 100 thousand signatures from the public had called for the debate. The government earlier ordered its MPs to vote against the motion - or face penalties. Despite this, dozens of David Cameron's party members defied the order, in what's been the biggest internal challenge he's faced as Prime Minister.

Jon Gaunt, from the 'Vote UK out of the EU' campaign, says Britain never signed up for what the EU turned out to be.

The Story of Cosmetics - The Ugly Truth About Personal Care Products

I found this video on the internet which reminded me of a woman in Sweden who could not get pregnant and just by stopping the use of personal care products and making her own shampoos and cremes, she was able to become pregnant. Now, she teaches other women what she has learned.

Ponder this before thinking of modern medicine's help or adoption agencies.

I AM THE PEOPLE, THE MOB - A Poem by Carl Sandburg. Dedicated To All Those At Occupy Chicago


by Carl Sandburg

I AM the people--the mob--the crowd--the mass.

Do you know that all the great work of the world is
     done through me?

I am the workingman, the inventor, the maker of the
     world's food and clothes.

I am the audience that witnesses history. The Napoleons
     come from me and the Lincolns. They die. And
     then I send forth more Napoleons and Lincolns.

I am the seed ground. I am a prairie that will stand
     for much plowing. Terrible storms pass over me.
     I forget. The best of me is sucked out and wasted.
     I forget. Everything but Death comes to me and
     makes me work and give up what I have. And I

Sometimes I growl, shake myself and spatter a few red
     drops for history to remember. Then--I forget.

When I, the People, learn to remember, when I, the
     People, use the lessons of yesterday and no longer
     forget who robbed me last year, who played me for
     a fool--then there will be no speaker in all the world
     say the name: "The People," with any fleck of a
     sneer in his voice or any far-off smile of derision.

The mob--the crowd--the mass--will arrive then.

This poem was taken from:

Health - We are Asleep at the Wheel by Michael Brine

Health - We are Asleep at the Wheel

I am going to start by sharing part of a recent e-mail letter I sent to a cyber friend in the US who has just had to face the loss of her mother, and two friends from cancer, and also a husband contracting dementia.

“ From your earlier sharing relating to the health/medical challenges you have been faced with by those family members and friends close to you who are suffering or have died is a clear indication and illustration of just how ‘off base' in particular, our North American culture is to what causes our endemic cancers and other illnesses – like dementia – that are plaguing us. The evidence is there in front of us from just this one e-mail you have shared over the illnesses within your OWN family and friends and should be a clear indication to us all that something is very wrong.

In my opinion we are asleep at the wheel as the illnesses that plague us have become ‘acceptable' that this is the way it is. NOT SO! We have allowed our insidious acceptance of certain elements into our daily lives which are the causes of so much of our health problems – and for the most part preventable. The problem being we are asleep - all of us - at the proverbial wheel!”

Now bear with me and let me present to you in this column a few of the prime factors fostering and evolving this saddening state within our North American culture in particular but by no means not only here:-

1 - Vaccination

This is at the top of my ‘List' and I know VERY controversial. Here goes!

We have all been brain washed most of our lives over this need to be vaccinated every time something like the current H1N1 [Swine Flu] “crises” comes up. I'm sure you've all heard the comments coming from the media about the preparations being made to make sure there is a vaccine available by the Fall to get us all vaccinated.

Why is it we so often give our power away to these unnatural ways we are told will ‘protect' us from all the germs and bugs that are swarming all around us? At least that is the way it is so constantly presented to us by Health Canada , the Medical institutions, et al. [Oh, and by the way have you remembered to wash your hands after eating at that restaurant?] Come on! This is all so fear based to be on the verge of hysterical! Yet watching the TV news it is as if our very lives dependent on it. A little bit of dirt never does us any harm. Indeed, it actually stimulates our immune system and keeps it strong.

Has Nature got it wrong? If we follow basic common sense rules as we go through life all these very unnatural ‘protections' by way of vaccinations which are, in essence, injecting our bodies with, for the most part, elements of the very disease we are trying to be ‘protected' from. Does any of this make sense to you at all? ! Indeed where is the common sense in all of this?

As I have mentioned in earlier articles I have had two vaccinations in my life and nearly died from each.
First was the usual small pox when I was 6 and immediately got both cerebral AND spinal meningitis, either of which can be and is, usually fatal. I survived.

The Second was when I was posted to Pakistan when I was 27 and my employer's doctor insisted – despite the fact I had a letter from a Harley Street doctor who disagreed with vaccination to say I was an “Allergic subject” – I had to have the typhoid shot or lose my job. Six weeks later in Karachi I went down with – you guessed it – typhoid, and almost died - again!

Vaccination is one of the biggest evils ever perpetrated on Humanity. One of the reasons we are now so seemingly vulnerable to disease in some form is simply BECAUSE of all the vaccinations we have all been receiving over several generations which have resulted in our respective immune systems becoming increasingly weakened generation after generation. This has made those of us now living ever more vulnerable to anything that comes along whether it is a cold or something more serious. I honestly do accept that most doctors, however well meaning, including nurses and others who work within these professions, believe in this holy cow. We've all been brain washed through the conditioning we've all been subjected to from birth.

It's time to wake up! In most cases more people die from the vaccination itself than actually die from the disease we are being “protected” from. Hard to confirm because most deaths from vaccination are often recorded as “A bad batch” or similar. They did that with me and that was what my parents were told. That was in 1942.

I am aware of the argument put forward that vaccination has stopped a particular disease when introduced into an existing situation but the truth is that it is often obscured through bias and /or the fact that diseases are usually cyclic and by the time a vaccine has been introduced the disease has already begun to subside.

2 – Meat

We eat far too much meat – indeed, as I've said before North Americans are the biggest meat eaters in the world. The appalling conditions these animals are now raised in with so much injection of drugs to keep them ‘healthy' should be a cause for concern. You see we then absorb these drugs into our own systems. Over time there is an accumulation of this which ultimately creates basic health problems. [As most know I'm a “Veggie” since 18 – now a healthy 74.]

3 – Prescription Drugs

The extreme and dangerous over reliance and prescripting of drugs which, frankly, is abhorrent! This is a careless and costly “marketing” of lives in so many instances, by the Drug companies. I make no bones about it – the behavior of many Western [Allopathic] doctors and their increasing reliance on these drugs is, frankly, appalling. This ties in with the Drug Cartels and their influence within the World Health Organization [WHO] which under the name of CODEX is attempting to make herbal medicines available only through a Western doctor's prescription. This ties in with the vaccine issue above.

4 - Fluoridation and Chlorination of our drinking water

Iindeed too much tampering altogether. I only drink water I draw from our creeks which is untampered with in anyway – that includes many bottled water ‘products' as it is so purified that all the nutritional elements in natural water we need are consequently removed along with the bad stuff! Water is not just for quenching thirst!

5 – Lack of organic foods in our daily diet

Way too many“Fast” foods and other non-organic foods resulting over time with our cells being starved for the lack of needed nutrition to keep our cells healthy and alive. Very cancer causing in my opinion.

6 – Living on a constant competitive edge within our daily social environment

Work place, sports, our daily inter-action with people. So much of our daily life has an overt but also a subtle competitive edge to it within our daily interactions, thus creating tensions which, over time, undermines our health.

Along with this let me emphasize how important it is to maintain a positive frame of mind and avoid negative and angry thinking and feelings. Often not easy in to-day's world but if and when something up-sets you try and be aware of the rising anger within you and transmute it into more of an observation without the accompanying negative emotion that goes along with it.

7 – Lack of silence

The constant noise encountered particularly within urban living creates subtle tensions which over time is damaging. One of my pet peeves, as many restaurateurs are well aware of in Whitehorse , is the constant back-ground so called “music” volumed up to the point where to have a conversation you have to raise your voice. If, in a lounge and other similar places, I accept it I guess if it's a bit loud – but not in the main eating areas and generally softer music – especially in the mornings at breakfast!

8 – Exercise

Some form of daily outdoor exercise if only to leave the car at home and walk to the store – or, as I do, even when I was working, I almost always go for a quiet walk for an hour or so in a peaceful location where I can hear the gentle wind and other life forms we share this world with. They don't mind – honest! J However, I also see quite a few over-exercising especially in-doors. To much stressing yourself can be counter productive especially if you do not also follow some of these other elements I have tried to draw your attention to..

9 – Finally

The absence of the Natural world in the lives of so many. The way urban areas have been allowed to evolve so often, and shutting out Nature almost completely. This is not good.
For this column this will do! I am sure much of what I've shared is not unrecognized by most of you but also may be a cause for more reflection. I do not wish to come across as a know-it-all and if you do not agree with some of my observations put it aside for now and/or let me hear from you. I am always open and can learn from the experiences of others. No person is an island. J Take care all of you.

Thank you. Michael.

In Support Of Food Freedom by Steven Armbruster

Rise up, join the fight! Our heritage is our liberty, let's pass it on to the next generation.
- Steve

American citizens retain Ninth Amendment "civil-right" protection to consume the foods of their choice. This right includes, but is not limited to, using plants and foods as their own medicines.

The Ninth Amendment protects their right to produce and consume dairy products, including milk from cows, "raw milk and cheese" and also milk from goats.

The rights of the American people are protected by the United States Constitution while they possess and consume herbs,use healing therapies as well as holistic and traditional therapies, that they themselves (the American people) consider to be beneficial to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

These rights are "unalienable" meaning that they can never be taken away from the people by the government. The Constitution is a document that simply states that our rights already exist, these rights "have" existed long before the establishment of our current government.

Our rights do not come from the hand of our government, they come from our higher power, whereas the number one function of the government is to protect and uphold our self-evident "unalienable" civil-rights.

When the government attempts to establish itself as the higher power, the American people must peacefully place "their" government back into it's proper role. The government must at all times operate in respect to "natural rights", meaning that the government and it's officials are not the "provider" of our liberties.

It is the job and "individual duty" of every law enforcement official who has taken an "oath" to protect and defend the constitution, to refuse to enforce unlawful orders. This is especially true for the "county sheriff" who is elected specifically for the purpose of protecting the rights of the citizenry.

As sheriff, I will stand with the American people when their Ninth Amendment right to consume the foods of their choice is unlawfully threatened.

I call on all "constitutional sheriff's" and "constitutional sheriff" candidates across the nation to join with me in what is possibly the time of America's greatest need.

Let it be said, that if governmental officials come to the homes of our citizens, their farms or their places of business, specifically to violate their "unalienable" civil-rights. That those officials will not be us.

American citizens who refuse to comply with governmental orders to cease eating or producing the foods of their choice are not rebels or lawbreakers; the lawbreakers and rebels are the governmental officials who unlawfully take from them their constitutionally protected "civil-liberties".

As Americans, our liberty has always been our heritage.

Tokyo Hit With High Levels Of Fukushima Radiation

Tokyo Hit With Fukushima Radiation
Source:  Global Research Canada and Washington Blog.  October 14, 2011
CNN reports today:

An extraordinarily high level of radiation was detected in one spot in a central Tokyo residential district Thursday, prompting the local government to cordon off the small area, local officials said.

Radiation levels were higher in Tokyo’s Setagaya ward than in the evacuation area around the badly damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, according to ward Mayor Nobuto Hosaka.

“We are shocked to see such high radiation level was detected in our neighborhood. We cannot leave it as is,” Hosaka told reporters.

But the tsunami-struck Fukushima plant may not be the source of the radiation, Hosaka said later on state television.

Officials searching for the cause found “glass bottles in a cardboard box” in the basement of a house in the neighborhood which sent radiation detectors off the charts, he said on NHK.

“We suspect these bottles in basement could be the cause of the high radiation reading and we are hastily working to confirm it,” he said.

Radiation experts are now checking what contaminated the bottles, a Setagaya ward official told CNN, declining to be named in line with policy.

Perhaps it is just some random contaminated bottles.

But as the Wall Street Journal reported yesterday:

Japanese researchers discovered high levels of radioactive material in concentrated areas in Tokyo and Yokohama, more than 241 kilometers away from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, as increasingly thorough tests provide a clearer picture of just how far contamination has spread and accumulated ….

In Tokyo, a sidewalk in Setagaya ward, in the western part of the city, recorded radiation levels of 2.707 microsieverts per hour, about 50 times higher than another location in Setagaya where the ward regularly monitors radiation levels….

In Yokohama, the local government said last month that it detected 40,200 becquerels of radioactive cesium per kilogram of sediments collected from one part of a roadside ditch….

Yokohama is investigating another spot on an apartment rooftop where tests conducted by a local private research institute detected more than 60,000 becquerels of radioactive cesium per a kilogram of sediments.

The Journal also notes that these radioactive hotspots were not found through routine tests, but only because some residents walked around with geiger counters:

Both Setagaya Ward and Yokohama discovered those concentrated spots after residents carrying their radiation measuring devices noticed such spots and reported it to local officials.

The Seven Biggest Economic Lies by Prof. Robert Reich

No More Economic Lies

The Seven Biggest Economic Lies by Prof. Robert Reich

The president's jobs bill doesn't have a chance in Congress - and the occupiers on Wall Street and elsewhere can't become a national movement for a more equitable society - unless more Americans know the truth about the economy.

Here's a short (2 minute 30 second) effort to rebut the seven biggest whoppers now being told by those who want to take America backwards.

The major points:

1. Tax cuts for the rich trickle down to everyone else. Baloney. Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush both sliced taxes on the rich and what happened? Most Americans' wages (measured by the real median wage) began flattening under Reagan and has dropped since George W. Bush. Trickle-down economics is a cruel joke.

2. Higher taxes on the rich would hurt the economy and slow job growth. False. From the end of World War II until 1981, the richest Americans faced a top marginal tax rate of 70 percent or above. Under Dwight Eisenhower it was 91 percent. Even after all deductions and credits, the top taxes on the very rich were far higher than they've been since. Yet the economy grew faster during those years than it has since. (Don't believe small businesses would be hurt by a higher marginal tax; fewer than 2 percent of small business owners are in the highest tax bracket.)

3. Shrinking government generates more jobs. Wrong again. It means fewer government workers - everyone from teachers, fire fighters, police officers, and social workers at the state and local levels to safety inspectors and military personnel at the federal. And fewer government contractors, who would employ fewer private-sector workers. According to Moody's economist Mark Zandi (a campaign advisor to John McCain), the $61 billion in spending cuts proposed by the House GOP will cost the economy 700,000 jobs this year and next.

4. Cutting the budget deficit now is more important than boosting the economy. Untrue. With so many Americans out of work, budget cuts now will shrink the economy. They'll increase unemployment and reduce tax revenues. That will worsen the ratio of the debt to the total economy. The first priority must be getting jobs and growth back by boosting the economy. Only then, when jobs and growth are returning vigorously, should we turn to cutting the deficit.

5. Medicare and Medicaid are the major drivers of budget deficits. Wrong. Medicare and Medicaid spending is rising quickly, to be sure. But that's because the nation's health-care costs are rising so fast. One of the best ways of slowing these costs is to use Medicare and Medicaid's bargaining power over drug companies and hospitals to reduce costs, and to move from a fee-for-service system to a fee-for-healthy outcomes system. And since Medicare has far lower administrative costs than private health insurers, we should make Medicare available to everyone.

6. Social Security is a Ponzi scheme. Don't believe it. Social Security is solvent for the next 26 years. It could be solvent for the next century if we raised the ceiling on income subject to the Social Security payroll tax. That ceiling is now $106,800.

7. It's unfair that lower-income Americans don't pay income tax. Wrong. There's nothing unfair about it. Lower-income Americans pay out a larger share of their paychecks in payroll taxes, sales taxes, user fees, and tolls than everyone else.

Demagogues through history have known that big lies, repeated often enough, start being believed - unless they're rebutted. These seven economic whoppers are just plain wrong. Make sure you know the truth - and spread it on.

Truth, Propaganda and Media Manipulation by Global Research, Canada

This is an article that I wished to post a few months ago, but decided not to.  Now, I think that it is an appropriate time due to the current Occupy Wallstreet Movement and also due to the Julian Assange Case.  Here are two good examples of a controlled media that controls information and tells half truths and outright lies to misinform and often changes their stories during the process.

Right now, I believe it's important to find alternate news sources.  The Mainstream is very polluted these days and not a very healthy source for the human community.

Truth, Propaganda and Media Manipulation

by Global Research, March 27, 2011

Never before has it been so important to have independent, honest voices and sources of information. We are – as a society – inundated and overwhelmed with a flood of information from a wide array of sources, but these sources of information, by and large, serve the powerful interests and individuals that own them. The main sources of information, for both public and official consumption, include the mainstream media, alternative media, academia and think tanks.

The mainstream media is the most obvious in its inherent bias and manipulation. The mainstream media is owned directly by large multinational corporations, and through their boards of directors are connected with a plethora of other major global corporations and elite interests. An example of these connections can be seen through the board of Time Warner.

Time Warner owns Time Magazine, HBO, Warner Bros., and CNN, among many others. The board of directors includes individuals past or presently affiliated with: the Council on Foreign Relations, the IMF, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Warburg Pincus, Phillip Morris, and AMR Corporation, among many others.

Two of the most “esteemed” sources of news in the U.S. are the New York Times (referred to as “the paper of record”) and the Washington Post. The New York Times has on its board people who are past or presently affiliated with: Schering-Plough International (pharmaceuticals), the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Chevron Corporation, Wesco Financial Corporation, Kohlberg & Company, The Charles Schwab Corporation, eBay Inc., Xerox, IBM, Ford Motor Company, Eli Lilly & Company, among others. Hardly a bastion of impartiality.
And the same could be said for the Washington Post, which has on its board: Lee Bollinger, the President of Columbia University and Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York; Warren Buffett, billionaire financial investor, Chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway; and individuals associated with (past or presently): the Coca-Cola Company, New York University, Conservation International, the Council on Foreign Relations, Xerox, Catalyst, Johnson & Johnson, Target Corporation, RAND Corporation, General Motors, and the Business Council, among others.

It is also important to address how the mainstream media is intertwined, often covertly and secretly, with the government. Carl Bernstein, one of the two Washington Post reporters who covered the Watergate scandal, revealed that there were over 400 American journalists who had “secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency.” Interestingly, “the use of journalists has been among the most productive means of intelligence-gathering employed by the CIA.” Among organizations which cooperated with the CIA were the "American Broadcasting Company, the National Broadcasting Company, the Associated Press, United Press International, Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps-Howard, Newsweek magazine, the Mutual Broadcasting System, the Miami Herald and the old Saturday Evening Post and New York Herald-Tribune." 

By far the most valuable of these associations, according to CIA officials, have been with the New York Times, CBS and Time IncThe CIA even ran a training program “to teach its agents to be journalists,” who were “then placed in major news organizations with help from management.” 

These types of relationships have continued in the decades since, although perhaps more covertly and quietly than before. For example, it was revealed in 2000 that during the NATO bombing of Kosovo, “several officers from the US Army's 4th Psychological Operations (PSYOPS) Group at Ft. Bragg worked in the news division at CNN's Atlanta headquarters.” This same Army Psyop outfit had “planted stories in the U.S. media supporting the Reagan Administration's Central America policies,” which was described by the Miami Herald as a “vast psychological warfare operation of the kind the military conducts to influence a population in enemy territory.” These Army PSYOP officers also worked at National Public Radio (NPR) at the same time. The US military has, in fact, had a strong relationship with CNN.

In 2008, it was reported that the Pentagon ran a major propaganda campaign by using retired Generals and former Pentagon officials to present a good picture of the administration’s war-time policies. The program started in the lead-up to the Iraq War in 2003 and continued into 2009. These officials, presented as “military analysts”, regurgitate government talking points and often sit on the boards of military contractors, thus having a vested interest in the subjects they are brought on to “analyze.”

The major philanthropic foundations in the United States have often used their enormous wealth to co-opt voices of dissent and movements of resistance into channels that are safe for the powers that be. As McGeorge Bundy, former President of the Ford Foundation once said, “Everything the Foundation does is to make the world safe for Capitalism.” 

Examples of this include philanthropies like the Rockefeller Foundation, Ford Foundation and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation providing immense financial and organizational support to Non-Governmental Organizations. Furthermore, the alternative media are often funded by these same foundations, which has the effect of influencing the direction of coverage as well as the stifling of critical analysis.

The 'Getting' Of Assange And The Smearing Of A Revolution by John Pilger

Martin Luther King
The 'Getting' of Assange and the Smearing of a Revolution
by John Pilger
Global Research, October 6, 2011
The High Court in London will soon to decide whether Julian Assange is to be extradited to Sweden to face allegations of sexual misconduct. At the appeal hearing in July, Ben Emmerson QC, counsel for the defence, described the whole saga as “crazy”. Sweden’s chief prosecutor had dismissed the original arrest warrant, saying there was no case for Assange to answer. Both the women involved said they had consented to have sex. On the facts alleged, no crime would have been committed in Britain.
However, it is not the Swedish judicial system that presents a “grave danger” to Assange, say his lawyers, but a legal device known as a Temporary Surrender, under which he can be sent on from Sweden to the United States secretly and quickly. The founder and editor of WikiLeaks, who published the greatest leak of official documents in history, providing a unique insight into rapacious wars and the lies told by governments, is likely to find himself in a hell hole not dissimilar to the “torturous” dungeon that held Private Bradley Manning, the alleged whistleblower. Manning has not been tried, let alone convicted, yet on 21 April, President Barack Obama declared him guilty with a dismissive “He broke the law”.

This Kafka-style justice awaits Assange whether or not Sweden decides to prosecute him. Last December, the Independent disclosed that the US and Sweden had already started talks on Assange’s extradition. At the same time, a secret grand jury – a relic of the 18th century long abandoned in this country -- has convened just across the river from Washington, in a corner of Virginia that is home to the CIA and most of America’s national security establishment. The grand jury is a “fix”, a leading legal expert told me: reminiscent of the all-white juries in the South that convicted blacks by rote. A sealed indictment is believed to exist. 
Under the US Constitution, which guarantees free speech, Assange should be protected, in theory. When he was running for president, Obama, himself a constitutional lawyer, said, “Whistleblowers are part of a healthy democracy and must be protected from reprisal”. His embrace of George W. Bush’s “war on terror” has changed all that. Obama has pursued more whistleblowers than any US president. The problem for his administration in “getting” Assange and crushing WikiLeaks is that military investigators have found no collusion or contact between him and Manning, reports NBC. There is no crime, so one has to be concocted, probably in line with Vice President Joe Biden’s absurd description of Assange as a “hi-tech terrorist”.

Should Assange win his High Court appeal in London, he could face extradition direct to the United States. In the past, US officials have synchronised extradition warrants with the conclusion of a pending case. Like its predatory military, American jurisdiction recognises few boundaries. As the suffering of Bradley Manning demonstrates, together with the recently executed Troy Davis and the forgotten inmates of Guantanamo, much of the US criminal justice system is corrupt if not lawless.
In a letter addressed to the Australian government, Britain’s most distinguished human rights lawyer, Gareth Peirce, who now acts for Assange, wrote, “Given the extent of the public discussion, frequently on the basis of entirely false assumptions... it is very hard to attempt to preserve for him any presumption of innocence. Mr. Assange has now hanging over him not one but two Damocles swords, of potential extradition to two different jurisdictions in turn for two different alleged crimes, neither of which are crimes in his own country, and that his personal safety has become at risk in circumstances that are highly politically charged.”

Facebook Warning Page From Australia - Have Backup Blogs

Facebook warning page

While Facebook is an excellent means for business and social networking, we ask people to consider the following before linking to the facebook based groups listed below.

We do not advise against joining Facebook based groups – we empower you to make an informed decision to do so or not.

You cannot delete from cyberspace: multiple web archiving orgs preserve info you post FOREVER- its there even when you delete your FB account. Privacy settings don’ t block your participation in groups. Facebook history archives are a favorite tool for human resource businesses in profiling job applicants.

Privacy settings don’ t block your participation in groups. Facebook history archives are a favorite tool for human resource businesses in profiling job applicants.

FB invites: work well because the recipient usually has some familiarity with you & trusts you. However,the invited person will never see this warning page and may unintentionally disclose publicly information they consider private. From an ethical perspective we consider the concept as wilful entrapment.

Facebook & Activism Facebook has been known to shut down Facebook based activist groups without warning, at critical stages of the campaign. – An example was the nosamsclub campaign opposing Walmart brand building on a native american sacred site. If Facebook shuts YOUR occupy group down whats your backup contact & communication strategy?

Facebook & Law Enforcement: As a USA based entity FB have obligations to allow authorities such as FBI CIA or Interpol access to Any info they require. Most if not all western countries police & secret police have access via reciprocity agreements. The speed with which some test info has been identified in posession of government security leads some researchers to believe that state security elements work permanently within Facebook.

Should you choose to join a facebook group or open a FB account we advise you to pay attention to the privacy settings.

Fukushima And The Battle For Truth by Paul Zimmerman

Fukushima And The Battle For Truth by Paul Zimmerman
Large sectors of the Japanese population are accumulating significant levels of internal contamination

Global Research, September 27, 2011
Fukushima’s nuclear disaster is a nightmare. Ghostly releases of radioactivity haunt the Japanese countryside. Lives, once safe, are now beset by an ineffable scourge promising vile illness and death. 

Large sectors of the population are accumulating significant levels of internal contamination, setting the stage for a public health tragedy. 
A subtle increase in the number of miscarriages and fetal deaths will be the first manifestation that something is amiss. An elevated incidence of birth defects will begin in the Fall and continue into the indefinite future. Thyroid diseases, cardiac diseases and elevated rates of infant and childhood leukemia will follow. Over the next decade and beyond, cancer rates will soar.

Chernobyl was the harbinger of this heartbreaking scenario. It taught mankind the inescapable biological truths that emerge within populations internally contaminated by heightened levels of fission products. And yet, government and industry schemers attack these truths as unfounded scare-mongering. With cold indifference, they deny that Chernobyl was a mass casualty event. They turn a blind eye to a huge body of research and deviously proclaim that no evidence exists that more than a handful of people suffered harm from the Ukrainian disaster. They publish propaganda, draped in the guise of science, that dismisses the hazard of low levels of internal contamination. Believing their subterfuge to have been successful and intoxicated by their hubris, they are already positioning themselves to stage-manage the public’s perception of Fukushima. 

Japan’s government, its Nuclear Safety Commission, and the Tokyo Electric  Power Company have already demonstrated that they will do everything in their power to keep citizens ignorant of what is taking place. The emerging health crisis is scheduled to be erased. Following a time-tested blueprint worked out by prior radiation releases around the world, data relevant to assessing the medical impact of the accident will not be gathered. Radiation doses to the population will be woefully underestimated. The hazards associated with low levels of internal contamination will be obliterated from all discussions of risk. Academic journals that support the nuclear agenda will be flooded with bogus studies demonstrating that no health detriment was suffered by the population. The heightened incidence of childhood leukemia will be attributed to some as yet unidentified virus unleashed by population mixing following the evacuations caused by the tsunami. (This theory is currently in vogue to deny that the heightened incidence of leukemia among children under five years of age living nearby to nuclear reactors is radiation induced.)  The birth defects will be summarily dismissed as impossible because the risk models upheld by the International Commission on Radiological Protection don’t predict them. The possibility that the models are fraudulently constructed escapes consideration. (See a Betrayal of Mankind by the Radiation Protection Agencies, available as a free download at

Fear Not For Mankind

A Message To Those Who Represent We The 99 % Of Humanity

From Rolling Stone Magazine

I have been thinking about New York, Chicago and LA and those who stand for us in this movement to take back our Land from the hands of the Plutocractic.  The media blackout was lifted on Saturday in the UK and Sweden.  I figured that this would happen soon.  Now the controlled medias will make their own spin to darken and discredit those who have risen above their fear to take back their Land.  It is also more than this, in a sense they have united with other lovers of freedom in many Lands.

I have written a tribute to all those who now stand against tyranny and attempt to relight the flame of liberty for their fellows.  I have no way to support them but through the written word and by helping to spread the word of what they are doing from their points of view.

Now, I will convey my point of view on what this occupy Wall Street, Chicago and Los Angeles movements means to me.  So here goes:

A Tribute To Those Who Stand For Us

A time of change is soon upon not just you but many, many others.  The old ways are no more.   Now is a time of a great transformation of financial markets and the ways of commerse.

No longer will a few control the many.  For now is the time of co-operation and consensus upon us.

Now, many assemble in the great financial centers.  New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.  Seats of once mighty financial entities, now overcome and defeated by represntatives of the 99 % of humanity.

These way seers and way showers and way doers now gather before the upcoming storm.  Mothers shall weep and fathers shall cry at the injustices done to their own and will arise from their fear and inaction and demand a change of leadership.  True leaders, those of love, those of courage, those who know the way toward a future in which honest attempts are made to solve the problems of community.  The theft of pensions, the theft of our social services, the theft of our medias.  All will come to an end.

Consensus shall show it's head and the head of the snake will no longer direct, since it's body will be cut off.  Those who have signed up to this mass disordering of human community and betrayed not only others, but have betrayed what is best within themselves will lead no more.

No longer will the weak and the corruptable rule.  Now, comes a changing of the guard.  Now, come those of responsibility and compassion.  Now, come the true leaders to take their rightful place amongst their fellows.

The call has gone out and many have answered.  They come together not as victims, but as leaders.  Leaders leading the way back to their roots that were forged in the fiires of a democractic dream.  A dream of Man and Woman working together for the betterment of all within human community.

Now, the bell of liberty rings again but not from a cold metal object, but it rings loud and true with the strength of the human heart.

The young and old unite for a common cause of the re-establishment of the common good.

Yes, Good that will one day be so common amongst Mankind that future generations will wonder how Mankind could have ever allowed itself to fall into such a state of disalignment and disrepair.

Future generations will know directly what is of the Good and live their lives in accordance with not just what is best for their individual expression of their humanity, but what is best for their everyday living in human community.

We salute you all this day and wish to tell you that yes indeed you succeeded with your plans and brought about whole new systems of commerse that were created out of what is best within your humanities.

God's speed and stay the course.  For those of greatness and wisdom from your past and your future have joined together with you in these days and helped direct you back to the path that you left so many countless centuries ago.

They come from the north, the south, the east and the west and join together in a common goal of re-establishing the common good within human communities.  They will come together as one, yet keep their individuality.  United by a common dream, one determined by the human heart.

It is freedom you have sought and it is freedom that has again found you sleeping and rang the bell of liberty.

Fear not.  There is no force that can deter you now from the culmination of your collective dream of freedom.
