Puttin’ on the Writs! National Liberty Alliance Files Mandamus Documents


Home

For those not aware, John Darash and his teams at the ‘National Liberty Alliance’ have been writing and issuing the documentation necessary to free us from the corruption and illegal tyranny of the dark cabal—the imposters posing as our ‘government’.

The “writ mandamus” documents have now been issued, and there are many of them to cover various aspects of the current “illegal” system.

I love this part:

This document is not for interpretation by BAR attorneys; “Laws are made for men of ordinary understanding and should, therefore, be construed by the ordinary rules of common sense. Their meaning is not to be sought for in metaphysical subtleties which may make anything mean everything or nothing at pleasure.” – Thomas Jefferson to William Johnson, 1823 ME 15:450. All respondents took an oath to uphold and protect the Constitution and therefore should understand these documents; if not learn or resign your post.

I’ve discussed this before but if you’re not aware, the ORIGINAL 13th Amendment to the US Constitution—before it was slipped out by the corrupt parties—stated that no one of “nobility” or individuals of title were to be part of the government. That referred at that time to those such as “esquire”, which were barristers, solicitors, lawyers, attorneys at law.

We know why that was intended to be part of the Constitution, and why it was removed. Most of the US government we interact with are lawyers, and they are responsible for drafting up documents, bills and laws that only they can understand and are far too large for our representatives to want to read in full, and they use a language that has an entirely different meaning than we lay people were taught.

They have corrupted the system, and we didn’t realize it. But now we know, and the illegalities of government are being addressed.

They pass laws to control us; we are playing by their rules. We’re taking them down legally—and peacefully, and this just may be our saving grace.

The corrupt courts are being served, and now the Common Law Grand Juries are in place to take the criminals to task—thanks to people like John Darash and his teams who have put years of work into this and seem to have pulled a rabbit out of a hat. I don’t know how they did this in the short time they’ve had. They must eat, sleep and breathe this stuff.

It’s incredible what they have accomplished, and I heartily applaud them for their dedication. The People of the Republic of the United States owe them a debt of gratitude. I trust other countries are following suit.

Legal documents have never been interesting for most of us to read (by design), but I think you’ll find these vastly different from what you might expect. They speak our language. Here’s a sample:

                                              LIBERTY RISING

The purpose of this Mandamus is to expose foreign and domestic tyrants posing as Americans that have infiltrated our government at all levels in a concerted effort to overthrow the fifty governments of the united 40 States by seizing their seat of power our Federal City a/k/a Washington DC. Thereby these tyrants have covertly erected a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, political operations and through courts of fiction, contrary to the authority by which they claim, Article I Section 8 clauses 17 and 18, prevent the execution of the Law of the Land resulting in the enslaving of the 45 sovereign People of America;

I find this terribly exciting. We’re puttin’ on the writs!

Here is an excerpt from the writ mandamus for “Subversion”.

On June 6, 2015 We the People filed Writ Mandamus concerning subversion revealing Jade Helm, a Trojan-horse to take America, and exposing foreign and domestic tyrants, posing as Americans, who have infiltrated our government at all levels in a concerted effort to overthrow the fifty governments of the united States. These tyrants have seized their seat of power (our Federal City a/k/a Washington DC) and thereby have covertly erected a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, political operations; through courts of fiction, contrary to the authority by which they claim (Article I Section 8 Clauses 17 and 18), prevent the execution of the Law of the Land resulting in the enslaving of the sovereign People of America;

“Now is the time to pay attention, take a stand and prevent these tyrants from building their dark cities. Become empowered. Read the Writs because we must “educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” Thomas Jefferson; and then join NLA as we take this battle to the courts and our federal city.”

If you can do nothing else, I heartily encourage you to take part in this battle. Take their advice and read the writs. It’s your duty as an American citizen of the Republic, and it’s truly interesting reading. Share them!

As You Wish Talk Radio with James Gilliland

Laura says…

James Gilliland interviews my partner and I on his “As You Wish” radio show Saturday night 6/13/15 8pm PST and it is all about what to do and what is being done by National Liberty Alliance. NLA is making huge strides and the fraudulent court system is freaked. The Joint Chiefs of Staff have “The Unified Common Law Grand Jury” mandamus documents on Jade Helm as well. There is one little bit about my Blue Avian experience too. http://bbsradio.com/asyouwishtalkradio

‘Ghost ship’ found off Hawaii near rare Japanese submarine aircraft carriers


Two giant second world war-era undersea vessels capable of launching seaplanes lie on seabed near USS Kailua, well-preserved despite 1946 sinking by torpedo

Researchers at the University of Hawaii have discovered a miraculously preserved “ghost ship” on the seabed off Oahu, alongside the wrecks of several Japanese submarines.

The “ghost ship”, as the researchers who discovered the vessel have called it, rests more than 600 metres below the surface 20 miles from the island of Oahu, where it has lain for more than 60 years. The ship is resting upright on the ocean floor; all its upper deck structures remain intact. Even its mast is still erect.

Before it was sunk as a torpedo target for submarines in 1946, the ship was known as the USS Kailua. Before that, it was the Dickenson, built for the Commercial Pacific Cable Company as a layer of submarine cables.

The Dickenson was chartered by the US navy during the second world war, servicing submarine nets and service cables. After the war, no longer needed by either the cable company or the navy, it was sunk by torpedo for target practice.

Because of the ship’s violent end, researchers have expressed astonishment about how well-preserved the wreck is.

“Seeing the ship come into view, we were all amazed at its level of preservation – and by the fact that everything was more or less in place, said James Delgado, director of the maritime heritage programme at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, in a press release on Friday.

The Dickenson is one of a large number of wrecks from the Battle of the Pacific that litter the seabed off Oahu.

Other wrecks there, according to sonar surveys by the University of Hawaii’s Undersea Research Laboratory, include a Japanese midget submarine sunk in the opening hour of the attack on Pearl Harbor – and two huge Japanese aircraft carrier submarines.

The carrier submarines were 400ft-long undersea behemoths, designed to surface, launch a cargo of three specially designed Seiran seaplane bombers from their watertight aircraft hangars using a deck catapult, and then quickly submerge again before they could be detected.

Until the construction of nuclear ballistic missile-carrying submarines began in the 60s, the I-400 class were the largest submarines ever built.

Only two ever entered active service, and they were both captured by the US navy in 1945 after the surrender of Japan, and then scuttled off Oahu to prevent the technology falling into Soviet hands.

Signs of cabal defeat are now obvious but, expect one last big push for war


This week’s update from Ben Fulford indicates that real change is happening, all around us. The Bank of England has declared that taxpayers will not be on the hook for failing banks. Also, Ben was part of a panel that discussed a wide variety of formerly taboo subjects, that I hope will be available to the public, soon. -LW


November 11, 2014

The signs of cabal defeat are now proliferating to an extent that can no longer be hidden from any but the most deeply brainwashed people in the West. The most obvious sign is the APEC meeting winding up today in China. There three of the world’s largest oil producers, Canada, Russia and Qatar signed new deals to trade oil in Yuan. This makes it a mathematical certainty the petrodollar is finished. Russia also announced it was de-pegging the Ruble from the petrodollar.

In England, meanwhile, multiple senior politicians are working towards creating government currency to replace the 300 year old Rothschild fiat currency regime, according to MI5 sources. On November 20th, for the first time in 170 years, the British Parliament will discuss this issue. This is link to a paper on the subject that has been distributed to all British MPs:

https://www.positivemoney.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Backbench-Briefing-Note.pdf

The Japanese government is also seriously contemplating doing exactly the same thing. This means that all Japanese government debt will be written off in one fell swoop.

There are also indications the corporate government in the United States has gone into full crisis mode. For example, when this writer tried to access the official Russian Ria Novosti news site from his computer and his tablet device, he was redirected to an obvious disinformation site called “Sputnik News.” This came after the Russian government news site put out reports that American mercenaries were shelling the crash site of Malaysian airlines flight 17. This can only be described as an attempt by the American fascist regime to prevent the Europeans from finding out it was their supposed US allies who shot the passenger plane down.

The other sign that something big is going down with the US regime is the fact the Pentagon has warned its troops to not go out with Russian or Chinese women. This is a sort of measure taken in war time to prevent military secrets from leaking out. Finally, CNN has shut down its Russian operations, again the sort of thing that happens in war time.

The Russians, for their part, have started a major push to seize the remaining ethnically Russian districts in the Ukraine as well as the gas fields in the Sea of Azov.

The US corporate government is in no position to win any war against Russia and China at this point in time because neither its NATO allies nor Japan are going to go along with such a suicidal and world-destroying plan.

The more likely outcome will be the overthrow of the US corporate government and the restoration of the Republic of the United States of America.

Another reason for cabal panic is a criminal trial that started on November 10th in London, England where evidence will be presented that the 311 tsunami and nuclear disaster in Japan was a terrorist attack. The trial is being held to determine whether UK lawyer Michael Shrimpton gave false warnings about a nuclear terror threat to the 2012 London Olympics. Here is a link to a Daily Mail article about the trial.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2828974/Barrister-bomb-hoax-calls-Defence-Secretary-claiming-London-2012-Queen-targets-court-hears.html

The defendant has lined up multiple witnesses to bolster his claim that the nuclear terror threat was real and that Japan had already experienced a nuclear terror attack. This writer is scheduled to be one of the witnesses at the trial.

The trial is important because it will bring lots of information that has appeared online under the forensic scrutiny of a criminal court. If the evidence is good, it will then lead to criminal charges eventually being filed against the perpetrators of 311. The Japanese and North Koreans involved in the attack have been offered, and have accepted, amnesty in exchange for providing information about 311.

The trial is expected to be a fair one because there are proliferating signs the UK is freeing itself of cabal influence. The ongoing investigation into a high level pedophile ring there is the clearest evidence of this. British newspapers are now reporting, for example, that Sir Peter Hayman, former Deputy Head of MI6 British foreign intelligence was a pedophile rapist. Investigators into the pedophilia network are particularly interested in cases where pedophilia was used to blackmail politicians and influence government policy.

The other indication is that the British and European dominated Financial Stability Board, an international financial regulator, has come up with regulations to make sure tax payers never again have to bail out “too big to fail” financial institutions like happened after the Lehman shock of 2008. This is clearly aimed at the big US banking institutions that own the Federal Reserve Board and looted US taxpayers in 2008.

Japan is also showing signs of being ready to make a decisive break with the cabal. On November 10th, for example, this writer spent much of the day in a Rupert Murdoch owned TV studio with a group of panelists who were allowed to openly discuss previously taboo subjects. This writer talked about how ebola was a US cabal bio-weapon, that Malaysian Air flight 370 and flight 17 shot down in the Ukraine were the same plane and that ISIS was a creation of Mossad and US intelligence. Other panelists made similar claims. One of them, blogger Richard Koshimizu, talked about a homosexual blackmail network involving senior Japanese politicians.

It remains to be seen how much of this will appear when the show is broadcast after editing but the fact that Murdoch is recording such shows is a sign at least one corporate media oligarch is interested in the truth.

Japan is expected to hold another general election in December that could lead to fundamental regime change, multiple government sources here say. There will be a big fight behind the scenes between the old guard behind Abe and the Japan revolutionary faction over the coming days to decide this issue.

Abe has been damaged in Japan after he was forced promise to stop provoking China and to eat humble pie in in order to get a token meeting with Chinese strongman Xi Jinping.

In North Korea, the US agencies recently secretly helped keep Kim Jong Un in power and prevented the take-over of that country by a Chinese led faction, according to pentagon sources. That is why North Korea released its last two American prisoners.

The Pentagon forces in Asia know that it is the Japanese and Chinese who are paying their bills these days. That is why they have an interest in acting as a peace-keeper in the region.

Ed Note: It’s no surprise Rupert Murdoch’s stations are the first to show interest in airing the truth, especially when the truth is far more dicey than the normal fear porn….crimeny, what’s more exciting than a homosexual blackmail network involving senior Japanese politicians, or a trial against state sponsored nuclear terrorism that’s decimating Japan’s environment and irradiating the Pacific Ocean? Or here’s a ratings grabber “Sir Peter Hayman, former Deputy Head of MI6 British foreign intelligence was a pedophile rapist. Investigators into the pedophilia network are particularly interested in cases where pedophilia was used to blackmail politicians and influence government police.”

After all, inquiring minds want to know the dirty details…Murdoch likely sees what’s coming and has decided to garner his audience now so he’s ahead of the game when Disclosure breaks the mainstream news. Interesting times indeed.

If Fulford’s information is even close to accurate, it’s time for another round of non-GMO popcorn…this kitty-kat’s enjoying the show from high above on  this little blog-perch.

Popcorn anyone? Meeoooww….

Benjamin Fulford: Desparate Cabal Loots Japanese Pension Funds


Desparate Cabal Loots Japanese Pension Funds
Benjamin Fulford

Strange financial market and geopolitical maneuvers last week make it clear the end days of the cabal are fast approaching. The clearest sign was the wholesale looting of Japan’s national pension fund by the Japanese slave government on behalf of the cabal. This bought the cabal some time by propping up the US government bond and stock markets but it failed to change the fundamental picture.

Here is what happened last week in the markets: First, the Federal Reserve Board, under new management, announced last week it would no longer buy US Treasury Bonds. Then Singapore, the largest financial market in Asia, follows London, Frankfurt, Seoul, Paris, Luxembourg, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao in allowing free trade in Chinese Yuan. Next Japan’s government announces an 80 trillion yen money printing splurge as well as the looting of the 127 trillion yen government pension investment fund. The Japanese money is being poured into US government bonds and cabal owned stocks causing the ongoing crack high in the markets.

It has also started a currency war because the Chinese have responded to the yen printing splurge with a yuan printing splurge.


Make no mistake though of which side will win the financial and economic war, the numbers do not lie. China produces 11 times more steel than the US, has the world’s greatest foreign currency reserves, has the most gold, accounts for a bigger share of global trade and has a massive cumulative trade surplus with the US. The most telling sign is that the biggest Chinese export to the US is computer equipment while the biggest US export to China is “scrap and trash.” Finally, the BRICS alliance that China is a part of controls 188 nations, the far greatest proportion of the world economy and more than 80% of its people. Looting Japan only buys time, it will never buy victory.

The Japanese slave government is also cracking down on dissidents. Last week Chodoin Daikaku, head of the world’s martial arts societies, was arrested on trumped up charges in an attempt to preempt the overthrow of the Abe slave government. This comes on top of the ongoing imprisonment of Illuminati grandmaster Alexander Romanov (real name Sasa Zaric) at the Inagidai mental hospital. This writer may also soon be arrested on trumped up charges by the Abe slave government.

The Abe regime is controlled by a group known as the Seiwa Kai which is ostensibly headed by former prime minister Yasuhiro Nakasone but in reality reports to George Bush Senior and the Nazionists.

The Japanese also announced last week via their proxy North Korea that they have nuclear missile carrying submarines. The message is that the soon to emerge unified Korean and Japanese nation of Kopan will be nuclear powered. http://rt.com/news/201603-north-korea-missile-submarine/

This is all part of a big showdown taking place worldwide against the Nazionists and their allies. The Nazionists are now mounting what could well be their last offensive before final defeat. The most obvious symptom of that is Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu using the phrase “grassy knoll” in a speech, referring to the location of the Kennedy assassination. This has been widely interpreted as an assassination threat against US President Barack Obama.

The threat follows Obama officials’ refusal to meet with the Israeli Defense Minister as well as references by US officials to Netanyahu as “chickenshit.” There was also a cartoon in the Israeli daily Haaretz portraying Netanyahu as a pilot flying a plane into the world trade center building. The implicit message is that a lot of people are going to be hung from lamp-posts soon unless the Nazionists back down.

Israeli and US troops have been fighting each other using proxies in Syria since ISIS is run by Mossad and the US airforce is bombing them and losing planes in the process.

There will also be evidence presented next week at a criminal trial in London that the 311 tsunami and nuclear disaster in Japan was a deliberate act of mass murder and that Netanyahu was one of the instigators.

The US mid-term elections now taking place are also using paper ballots instead of rigged electronic voting in a move that will help purge Washington D.C. of Nazionist controlled politicians.

The situation is also changing in Europe to the detriment of the Nazionists. The French are going ahead with their plan to start buying oil in Rubles and not US dollars despite the recent murder of the head of the French oil company Total. This has resulted in unmarked drones being seen flying around French nuclear power plants. The message is “we will sabotage your nuclear facilities if you abandon the petrodollar.” The French are now sending mixed messages about whether or not they will hand over to Russia the two helicopter carrying battleships they built for them.

The British are also moving away from the Nazionists with their ongoing purge of pedophiles and their overall move to distance themselves from the EU. They have also been pioneers in acknowledging the Chinese yuan was taking over from the petrodollar as the world’s reserve currency.

In the Ukraine, the parallel elections in the East and West of the country have now pretty much formalized the permanent split of that country. The Russians are now expected to mount, via proxies, an offensive to clear out the last of the foreign mercenaries still trying to provoke war in the Ukraine. The Eastern part of Ukraine is already de facto once again part of Russia. The Russians are also sending their nuclear bombers in all directions to underline the fact they mean business and are ready for nuclear war if they are pushed too far by the cabal controlled countries.

There is also a sign the Canadians are finally waking up to the Nazionist nature of the Stephen Harper government. Harper’s Nazionists were originally planning to use the recent staged “terrorist” shooting incidents to pass a law that would allow the arrest of people who had never committed a crime. That would have taken Canadian human rights back more than 1000 years to pre-Magna Carta levels.

Here is proof sent by a reader the recent shooting incident at the Canadian Parliament was staged. It is a photograph showing huge numbers of police cars at the Parliament 15 minutes before the “shooting incident.” http://2012thebigpicture.wordpress.com/2014/10/25/anonymous-photos-taken-15-minutes-prior-to-ottawa-shooting/

Now that a reaction against the Nazionists has begun, Harper suddenly decided he would not cancel his planned attendance at the APEC summit meeting in China due to the “terrorist attack.” Hopefully he will be removed from power soon after he returns to Canada.

The APEC summit will be followed a few days later by a G20 meeting in Australia that may result in some sort of surprise announcement of a plan to replace the current dysfunctional global architecture. This may be what all the jockeying is about.

There is also stuff going on at a more esoteric level. Vincenzo Mazzara of the Italian P2 Freemason lodge and a source at MI5 both say a new temple to the black sun is being built in Italy. The temple is supposed to replace the Vatican as the center of the Monotheistic world, they say. Marco Di Mauro from the P2 lodge also says the pope has recently sold all of the Vatican’s gold to give money to the poor. They sound as if they expect some earth changing apocalyptic event.

Japanese Whaling Crew Eaten Alive By Killer Whales, 16 dead


A Japanese whaling crew has fallen victim to a dramatic full on assault by a school of killer whales, killing no less then 16 crew members and injuring 12, has reported the Japanese Government this morning.

The crew of the MV Nisshin Maru (日新丸), Japan’s primary whaling vessel and the world’s only whaler factory ship, was forced to leave the deck temporarily as a gas leak was detected within the ship’s processing factory that resulted in the ship being temporarily disabled all while continuing to carry approximately 1,000 tons of oil.

The resulting panic lead members of the ship to jump off the boat before proper emergency procedures were taken and lifeboats had been set to sea.  The swimming crew members were then ferociously attacked by a school of killer whales, that decimated a large number of the crew within moments. “It was horrific” claims Asuka Kumara, a mechanical engineer who witnessed the gruesome  scene. “The water was red with blood, there were bodies everywhere” he recalls in tears.

Within 30 minutes of the incident, 16 crew members had disappeared into the ocean.

The incident occurred in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary, near the South Eastern Coast of South Africa, a controversial area to be whaling as a recent international court ruling has ordered the country to ends its whale hunt in the Antarctic. The East Asian nation halted its annual Antarctic whaling mission after the U.N.’s International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled last march the hunt violated an international moratorium on commercial whaling.

“It seems Japan just doesn’t give a damn about international law” explains environmental activist and spokesman for Greenpeace Canada, James Ben Shahali, based in Vancouver. “The waste of life is always a shame, but the whales are not to blame here, they were only doing what they are born to do: kill for food” he adds.

Some Greenpeace supporters have even celebrated the incident as a victory for the cause

Japan has slaughtered over 6,000 whales since commercial whaling was made illegal by the International Whaling Commission (IWC) moratorium passed in 1986.

Fukushima: Life with Horses in Evacuation zone


“Soma Nomaoi(Soma wild horse chase)” that has been designated as a significant intangible folk cultural asset was held on 27 to 29 July in Minami Soma city which is located 40 km away from Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. There is still evacuation zone in a part of this city. More than 400 horses with people costumed samurai paraded streets and did horse racing. It was originally for training samurai, and it has been handed down for over 1000 years. After the nuclear accident, Nomaoi has been reported on medeia as a symbol of recovery from the disaster. This year more than 160,000 people came to this festival to see the cultural event and to support Fukushima. But recovery in Fukushima has lots of contradiction. Nuclear plant is not under the control and people who are living in contaminated area is still trying decontamination. The problem is still there.
The word “Restoration of Fukushima” has overflown in Japan, but problems are not solved and talking about radiation is a kind of taboo.This photo story focuses on a farmer who provides horses to “Soma Nomaoi.” He is living in an evacuation area.
What does “Recovery” mean to people who are living in Fukushima?
Iitate village with its 6,500 residents was a municipality located about 40km away from Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant. After the nuclear disester, this village is designated as an evacuation zone, and nobody canʼt get permission to live there due to high contamination.
Hosokawa farm is one of the biggest farms in Iitate village and has been run for more than 100 years. Tokue Hosokawa is the third generation of this farm. He and his daughter Miwa aged 27 train horses to provided them all over Japan for TV commercial, drama, cinema and some festivals which need horses.
A month after the accident, Fukushima prefecture decided to cull domestic animals which were living in the evacuation zone. Animals remained there were not fed. Some became wild and some died of hunger. The reason to cull horses was “hygiene management”.
However, Hosokawa continued to feed his horses going from the place he refuged after the accident. And he fed them so as not to let the prefecture kill his horses. He had about 130 horses in his farm before the accident. And 86 horses evacuated to another place.
About 30 horses have remained in Hosokawa farm because he could’t find a place for them to refuge. He has been continuing to feed them. He and his daughter also helped 752 horses and caws to move from an evacuation zone to a safe place using 2 trucks just after the accident. According to Kyodo news, more than 1300 caws were culled until December 2012.
From the beginning of 2013, 16 horses including foals died in succession for 6 months in Fosokawa Farm. Experts performed an autopsy on a dead body, but they couldn’t find a main cause of their sudden death. Health center of Fukushima took their blood test and inspection, and the result showed that the causes were not infectious desease and parasitic warm. Symptoms were very similar. Once they became unable to walk, they died between several weeks.
This May, he tried to reveal the cause of their sudden death, and he decided to euthanize a horse whose symptom was similar to the other dead horses. And femoral muscle was detected cesium 200 becquerel/ kg by the researcher veterinarian Dr.Hiroyuki Ichikawa. They are studying this data tying to find the effect for their sudden death.
“I could live here thanks to my horses, so I can’t leave here without them. I have lived with horses since I was a child. So horses are my family. I can accept culling, if these horses have infectious desease. But they are fine. This is totally unacceptable. One day, I helped a cow which was pregnant. After evacuating from theMzaoyne2,0a13. calf was born. Unfortunately, his mother died of hunger. But this calf is still alive in another prefecture. I was very happy to help her baby,” he said.
Their most proudly work is to provide horses to intangible cultural asset named “SOMA NOMAOI(Soma wild horse chase)”. He provided about 60 horses to this event before the accident. But this year he provided about 20 horses. He provide horses that is from the other farm. Mainly these horses were trained by Hosokawa once. He couldn’t provide horses from own farm in iitate this year. However some horses that training was not enought were trained in Hosokawa farm.
“There is no future in this village. Only my house that light is going up in the night. Newspaper and mail doesn’t carry to my post. No restaurants and no shops… No people dosen’t come to my house. Only raccoon dog and fox comes to my house. Japan becomes such a pathetic country. After the accidents, my family fell apart. My daughter tried to commit suicide… I am relieved that she survived.
When I saw the foals,I entertained a flicker of hope. but even these foals died… There is no future. Nobody want to live without future. Here is Japan. Do you think it is really okay with this situation in Japan?” He said.
His daughter has a tattoo on her feet to remind herself of her decision to quit her job and go back to her father’s farm. It read “Hosokawa Farm.” “You can know I am Miwa of Hosokawa Farm, wherever I die.” she said.

Airlines Might Just Hold the Secret to Ending Dolphin Captures at the Cove


 

Can public pressure end airlines’ profitable transport of dolphins and other cetaceans?

October 7, 2013


animal cruelty facts
In January 2012, Hong Kong Airlines was paid $109,600 to transport five live dolphins (seen above) from Japan to Vietnam. (Photo: China Daily)

If a dolphin were captured by Japanese fishermen and sold at great profit to a faraway amusement park, but no one was willing to fly the animal there, would the fishermen want to capture more dolphins? Probably not.

That thinking has fueled a growing international effort to convince the world’s airlines and airfreight companies not to fly marine mammals captured from the wild to theme parks and aquariums. Citing the severe stress placed on whales and dolphins from hours in the restricted confinement of air transport, many air-cargo carriers are joining a “green list” of airlines vowing not to fly wild-caught cetaceans (unless an animal is being moved for health, safety or conservation reasons).

Many international activists believe that air transportation is the weakest link in a chain that sustains not only the infamous dolphin slaughter in Taiji, Japan, but also the international trafficking of all whales and dolphins for public display and profit. The most recent effort is a petition at Change.org by the anti-captivity group Freedom Blue. It calls on all carriers to, “Make the skies ‘dolphin-safe’—stop the carriage of cetaceans to marine parks.”

Transporting cetaceans—by air or otherwise—is highly stressful on dolphins and one reason why the risk of dying “increases six-fold in bottlenose dolphins during the first five days after a capture, and a similar mortality spike is seen after every transport between facilities,” says Naomi Rose of Animal Welfare Institute.

Companies like Japan Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Air China and UPS first became the targets of animal-advocacy groups several years ago, says Courtney Vail of Whale and Dolphin Conservation. Along with Humane Society International and AWI, her group pressured UPS to promise to stop carrying from the Solomon Islands, where dolphin drives like the one in Taiji also occur . The company complied in 2008. Despite its Solomon Islands pledge, though, UPS has not responded to WDC inquiries about flying dolphins from Taiji or other capture locations. Neither UPS, FedEx nor DHL responded to my requests for comment.

According to WDC figures, between 2002 and 2012, fishermen in Taiji captured and sold 1,203 dolphins into captivity—over and above the thousands killed for meat. About a third of the captured cetaceans were sold to the 56 aquariums in Japan that hold dolphins, leaving 800 more animals to be shipped to 14 different countries, especially China, which has flown in 242 dolphins from Taiji in the last decade. Other countries include Korea (21 dolphins), Ukraine (16), and Iran, Turkey and the Philippines (12 each). Activists estimate that airlines can reap up to $50,000 for flying a single animal.

“The focus on airlines isn’t new, but inclusion of Taiji in that equation is now a target for several groups and initiatives,” says Vail. Air China is one of the transporters of Taiji dolphins that can be verified. Last April, WDC launched its own online petition, which now has more than 70,000 signatures, asking Air China to stop flying dolphins taken from anywhere in the wild.

But Air China is not the only transporter. “We have been proactively targeting all airlines, including the few bad actors that have been documented to carry from the drive hunts or other wild captures,” says Vail.

Singapore Airlines is another target: In 2008 and 2009, it flew 27 wild-caught bottlenose dolphins from the Solomon Islands to the Philippines.

Passenger airlines are very sensitive to negative publicity, and have been known to bow to public persuasion. Hong Kong Airlines incurred the wrath of animal groups worldwide after flying five dolphins from Japan to Vietnam in January 2012.

The company later circulated an internal memo bragging about the $109,000 in revenue it had earned on the seven-hour flight and vowing to expand the practice. An outraged employee leaked the memo to China Daily, sparking an international backlash, including an online petition and a fury of angry calls and emails.

In February, Gary Stokes, the Hong Kong coordinator for Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, joined a number of activists and schoolchildren who walked into the airlines’ headquarters to deliver the petition, signed by 2,400 people, and a DVD of the Academy-Award winning documentary The Cove.

Airline employees quickly became heated, calling activisists “thugs” and “punks”. Stokes later wrote on Sea Shepherd’s website, “We continued to stand politely and peacefully, awaiting someone from management who could accept the letter. It was like a hot potato that nobody wanted.”  They finally delivered the material to a senior employee and were escorted from the building.


WDC and other groups, meanwhile, worked behind the scenes to secure a change in airline policy. On February 25, the company wrote to Vail, confessing it had been “totally unaware of the complexities behind its shipment,” adding that, “We are indeed very grateful for your input which has helped to sharpen an awareness of the dark side of the dolphin story.”

“If cessation of flights of this nature helps in the protection of cruelty to wild life,” the letter continued, “Hong Kong Airlines will have no second thoughts.”

It wasn’t the first victory, and it won’t be the last. Vail says WDC has written to 300 airlines asking them to confirm that they will never transport dolphins. So far, 34 have signed up, including major international airlines such as British Airways, Japan Airlines, Thai, Iberia and Emirates. Only two U.S. airlines, Delta and American, are on the list, though a US Airways spokeswoman said they do not carry animals in cargo. United and Northwest did not return my calls.

The first airline to adopt an official policy, more than a decade ago, was Lufthansa, after two dolphins died en-route to Argentina on one of its cargo planes. The entire journey, which transported one beluga and four dolphins, lasted 54 hours tank-to-tank. “Lufthansa really led the way on our campaign to work with carriers,” Vail recalls.

The success of WDC and its partners proves that when it comes to saving animals, people can make a difference. Just ask Hong Kong Airlines, or Lufthansa.

It’s Time to #StoptheSlaughter “Want to hear a real life horror story? The dolphin slaughter is still happening”


It's Time to #StoptheSlaughter

The Secret Is Out. Spread the Word.

The Story

The documentary, The Cove, helped to expose the slaughter of more than 20,000 dolphins and porpoises off the coast of Japan every year, and how their meat, containing toxic levels of mercury, is sold as food in Japan and other parts of Asia often labeled as whale meat. The majority of the world continues to be unaware this is happening.

The Solution
On September 1, the six-month dolphin hunting season opened again, and fishermen in Taiji have taken to the cove despite international pressure. But there’s hope: media attention seems to be the most effective way to reduce number of deaths. That’s why we need your help!

What You Can Do

  1. Join our Thunderclap via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or all three to get the word out to your friends and family. If the world pays attention, fewer dolphins are likely to be caught or killed!
  2. Watch on October 30th as these messages spread across social media!

Together we can stop this brutal and unnecessary slaughter!

WTF? What the Fukushima?! Dr. Patrick Flanagan


WFT? CNN broke the historic WHAT THE FUKUSHIMA? news today 8.31.13. We immediately began producing this video, where scientist Patrick Flanagan tells us that Fukushima is far worse than we’ve all been led to believe.

http://phisciences.com founder Patrick Flanagan says it’s even worse that CNN has reported, a horrific equivalent of radiation equal to 10 Hiroshima’s an hour 24/7 has been pumped into seas for since 3.11.13. That’s equal to about 8,700 Hiroshima’s.

Radioactive Water From Fukushima Is Systematically Poisoning The Entire Pacific Ocean


Until the time comes when we have moved past the shift and have raised our vibrations enough to heal the planet – and ourselves – it’s best to eliminate seafood from your diet and stay out of the Pacific ocean waters. In the mean time, we can send healing energy to the oceans and work with Gaia as much as we can to transmute the radiation. Also, there is higher technology available that works with frequency to change the atomic structure of radiation, unfortunately it’s off world technology that won’t be released until the cabal has been removed from power. So, even though this “appears” to be a very bad situation for the long run, remember we don’t have all the data on technology that will come online after the “event”, “shift”…whatever you want to call it.

In addition to the availability off world technology, it’s ultimately  important to BELIEVE and KNOW in our hearts that humanity will work in unity consciousness with the use of organic technology to heal the planet, with guidance and direction from Gaia Herself. 

 

Fukushima-Contamination-Pacific-Ocean-450x253Right now, a massive amount of highly radioactive water is escaping into the Pacific Ocean from the ruins of the destroyed Fukushima nuclear facility in Japan.  This has been going on all day, every day for more than two years.  The enormous amounts of tritium, cesium and strontium that are being released are being carried by wind, rain and ocean currents all over the northern Hemisphere.  And of course the west coast of the United States is being hit particularly hard.  When you drink water or eat seafood that has been contaminated with these radioactive particles, they can stick around for a very long time.  Over the coming years, this ongoing disaster could potentially affect the health of millions upon millions of people living in the northern hemisphere, and the sad thing is that a lot of those people will never even know the true cause of their health problems. For a long time, the Japanese government has been trusting Tepco to handle this crisis, but now it has become abundantly clear that Tepco has no idea what they are doing.  In fact, the flow of radioactive water has gotten so bad that authorities in Japan are now calling it an “emergency” More

60,000 Protest in Japan Against Nuclear Power


 

TOKYO, June 2 (UPI) –Despite more than 8 million signatures against the government’s plan to restart nuclear power plants collected, the gov of Japan still plans on restarting nuclear power plants. Citizens in Japan are suffering from the ongoing 2 year nuclear disaster and they want the nuclear madness stopped. The gov is NOT listening to the people and citizens have taken to the streets in protest. Approximately 60,000 people rallied Sunday near the Diet building in Tokyo to protest the government’s plan to restart nuclear power plants.

The rally began in Shiba Park, which was attended by Nobel laureate Kenzaburo Oe, RIA Novosti reported. The protesters then marched on the Diet building.

SAD THAT MAINSTREAM MEDIA ISN’T COVERING THIS
If they did, they would be encouraging more protests against nuclear to happen all around the world and they would not want that to happen as that would be going against what the corporate/industry owned media would want. Sad but true.

The nuclear industry does not want you to know the truth about chernobyl. They don’t want you to know that if a nuclear power plant in your country explodes, your family could experience the same fate. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ujAG_Ofj4M

Seriously, would a safe and honest industry do this? Take a look for yourself www.vimeo.com/33724891

and now we are seeing the same kind of cover up going on with the disaster in Japan.

No mainstream media talking about all the kids getting sick.

No mainstream media talking about the thousands of people still displaced 2 years later despite being told they would be able to go home in a matter of weeks after the nuclear disaster! Some told recently in their trailer park “temporary” housing that the soonest they would be able to go home now is 30 years –same exact thing happened with Chernobyl.

No mainstream media talking about the fact that nuclear industry with the blessings of the gov have raised the “acceptable” level of radiation exposure for babies to the previous yearly maximum level for full grown men working at nuclear power plants. Does that seem right to you??? That is crimes against children!!!

Just raise the level of acceptability of nuclear exposure means the gov does not have to shell out the money to evacuate families and the gov won’t lose the money from any industry activity and exports from that area–if they evacuate people it shows farming shouldn’t be happening there shipped around the country and to the rest of the world, etc…if you evacuate people you have to abandoned money making businesses there too…the gov wouldn’t have any of that…Great way to solve the problem!! (NOT–but it is happening)

Cicadas mutated. Born with an extra leg on top of their heads. Beautiful butterflies mutated. They cannot fly.

All this hidden. Hidden to protect the economy.

In the US, Gina McCarthy, Obama’s choice to head up the entire EPA who came from the department that monitored radiation in the US before getting the nomination (somehow many of the monitoring stations under her leadership ended up being reported as “broken” right after the numbers from Fukushima started ticking up in the US) has said if we had our own nuclear disaster that the way we should handle it is not to evacuate people if it would be devastating to the economy. That is the lesson she learned from Fukushima. How insane is that???!!

In essence shelter in place and embrace the “new norm” whatever that might be. From McCarthy’s perspective, people have to understand that from the gov’s perspective there is more to things then the health of citizenry– namely preserving the economy. Does this sound right to you? Put the economy ahead of the rights of people?
From our perspective, the rights of citizens should come first, not the rights of industry to potential poison people!!!

Phasing out nuclear seems like the better choice so citizens are not put at risk from exposure in the first place!!

The silence on all the damage the nuclear industry has done and is doing is deafening but we can’t let that stop the truth from getting out. Nuclear power is dangerous. Everyone all around the world, including in the US, should be rising up against it!

Earthquake swarm continues under Miyake volcano at Japan’s Izu Islands


 

 

April 19, 2013JAPAN – A strong earthquake swarm, presumably caused by a magmatic intrusion, has started Wednesday at Miyake volcano in the Japanese Izu Islands. On Wednesday alone, JMA recorded 136 earthquakes with magnitudes up to an earthquake of magnitude 5.6, which was widely felt in the region. The quakes’ hypocenters are clustered in a NNW-SSW trending area about 10 km west of the island, at depths of 5-15 km. The volcano last erupted in 2010. –Volcano Discovery

TITLE DISCLAIMER: Obviously the uploader of this video doesn’t follow the work of Susan Rennison, these are plasma related events that have been happening around Sakuajima (sp?) volcano in Japan for sometime now. This is one of the more spectacular shows yet, but IMO they have nothing to do with anything man-made or alien. It appears to be energy coming from the Shadow Biosphere, possibly related to hydrogen sulphide mixing with other elements in a highly charged environment.

It’s becoming very clear the disinfo machine is taking advantage of the changes in Earths energetic environment, as a way to keep people in fear of HAARP and other gov’t programs. Also, if people become aware of the extent of planetary changes underway, that awareness might lead them to educating themselves about earth changes to learn the truth about the causes of extreme climate change. And, God forbid people awaken to the degree they actually connect with each other and the planetary spirit of Gaia.

Fukushima: Two Years Later


Note: For readers who aren’t aware of my personal history, I spent two years at 17 & 18 yrs old, known as “No-Nukes Annette” for my work as a nuclear activist with the Sunbelt Alliance in Oklahoma. Each summer was spent training an ave. 75 people in non-violent direction to occupy the site of a proposed nuclear power plant just outside of Tulsa in Inola. This was back in the late seventies when the nuclear power industry was beginning to gear-up power plant construction across the U.S., so it was a long, hard battle. I even had agents parked in a cheesy red van wire-tapping our phones, was under surveillance the entire time and had goons approach me on several occasions asking really stupid questions about my work with the alliance and my views on nuclear energy. 
Fortunately we won our fight for citizens in Oklahoma, while the rest of the country slept thru the nuclear power plant invasion that swept over America and the world.  As a young woman, it was so disheartening to witness the cognitive dissonance emerging in all the aging hippies who taught me the importance of activism as a child growing up during the protests over the Vietnam war. At that point, it seemed if they could care less what was happening to the preservation of the country’s future.
By 1979 it was if everyone had all been seduced. hypnotized by incessant consumerism and lost on the treadmill of the rat-race. Yet, by the mid-eighties even I had given in to the seduction of the music business…my dreams of making the world a better place had faded into the noise. 
Now, three decades later Fukushima revived my commitment to educate the public about the lies and criminal negligence on behalf of the NRC and world leaders who have ALL betrayed the trust of the people. They’ve allowed the destruction of the planet at the hands of corporations that only exist is to feed the greed of bankster billionaires, corporate thugs and politicians and to strip mine the resources of the planet till there is nothing but a barren wasteland left.
So PLEASE, if you haven’t already done so, will you join me in the fight to raise awareness on this diabolical and deadly agenda? If nothing else, because planetary destruction is the legacy we’re leaving the children…Mahalo! Much love, Annette

A Basic Primer
by JANETTE SHERMAN, MD

Over the last two years, questions arise as to whether the Fukushima nuclear disaster is worse than Chernobyl. Unless the principles of physics, chemistry and biology are cancelled, the effects that have been documented in the various populations exposed to the radioactive releases from Chernobyl will occur in those exposed to Fukushima releases. This is not new information – it has been known for decades.

Let us consider “Science 101.”

Physics

When uranium is split as in a reactor, or bomb, it releases great amounts of heat, and energy, as well as multiple radioactive decay products. Once released the process of decay cannot be stopped. It takes approximately 10 half-lives for an isotope to fully decay.  Given that the half-life of cesium is some 30 years, it will be three centuries before the levels return to normal.

Incineration of contaminated materials is occurring in Japan, but burning, whether in an incinerator or a forest fire spreads the pollution.  Isotopes in soil, water, food, plants or animals cannot be detected by sight, taste, or smell.  Radiation measuring devices can detect the alpha, beta and gamma emissions, but only if they are performed, and are useful only if the information is released to the public.

Chemistry

All elements, radioactive or not, belong to groups best shown in the Periodic Table of Elements.  Radioactive strontium belongs to the same chemical family as calcium, and like calcium becomes deposited in the bones and teeth of children as well as in animals, fish and birds.  Like potassium, radioactive cesium is deposited in muscle – of all animals – fish, birds, and humans, while radioactive iodine, is taken up by the thyroid gland, causing the greatest damage in unborn and young animals.  These chemicals damage as they release high-energy radiation that causes damage to the surrounding tissues, including mutations.

Biology

As radioactive isotopes re spread over land and water, they become deposited – but in a non-uniform manner, depending upon wind direction, weather, and elevation.
Life process in plants results in the up-take of radioactivity, which is released as plants die, or become dormant, and leaves fall to the ground, to seep into the soil to be take up again the next season.  In the interim, fruit, vegetables and grains eaten by livestock and people becomes contaminated.

As isotopes fall upon both fresh and seawater, they are absorbed by plankton, crustaceans, fish, mammals, etc., and spread throughout the food chain.

After Chernobyl, not all life systems were examined, but of those that were – wild and domestic animals, birds, insects, plants, fungi, fish, trees, and humans, all were damaged, many permanently. Thus what happens to animals and plants with short-term life spans is predictive of those with longer ones.

Moller and Mousseau have done field research in both Chernobyl and Fukushima.  They document adverse effects seen in organisms with short life spans such as birds, rodents and insects (which have completed as many as 25 generations) that is much worse than has been reported in humans (who are now entering their 3rd generation since Chernobyl.)

The uniqueness of Japan bears mention. Japan is a small country with a large, dense population.  The population density around the Fukushima nuclear plants is greater than around Chernobyl.  Now two years later, the Fukushima plants are still leaking.  Consider too, the area Fukushima area was/is a major crop producing area, and the level of radioactive cesium in vegetables, and fish continues to increase.

Radiant Wildlands: The forests near Fukushima and Chernobyl likely have been changed forever.


By Winifred Bird and Jane Braxton Little

Late in the spring of 2011, the pale grass blue butterflies seemed no different. Flitting about the meadows of Fukushima Prefecture, their satin wings shimmered as they moved among the notched leaves of wood sorrel and feathery pampas grass. When Joji Otaki began looking closely at the delicate insects the size of a silver dollar, however, he was struck by abnormal patterns in the dark dots on their wings. Then he noticed dents in their eyes and strangely shaped wings and legs.

It was two months after the March 11, 2011 tsunami led to the meltdown of three reactors at Japan’s Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. The cesium, plutonium, and other radioactive emissions had already forced the evacuation of more than 100,000 residents caught in the cloud of contamination from one of the worst environmental disasters in history. Otaki, a professor at the University of the Ryukyus in Okinawa, was in the Abukuma Mountains west of the disaster site collecting butterflies to study their response to the accident. The explosion at the power plant had rained radioactive particles onto fields and forests the butterflies share with warblers and flycatchers, deer and bear in the rugged region north of Tokyo.

As Otaki and his research partners studied the Fukushima butterflies, the aberrations they found took them by surprise. Abnormalities in the first generation were within normal boundaries. But when Otaki bred these butterflies in his laboratory, mutations in the offspring increased to 18 percent. That suggested inherited genetic damage. Field samples collected in September 2011, representing the fourth or fifth generation of butterflies since the disaster, had even higher abnormality rates. The changes may not all have been caused by radiation; Otaki had previously found evidence that temperature can affect wing markings. But the deformities his team found in antennae, legs, and other body parts are truly unusual, says Hokkaido University entomologist Shin-ichi Akimoto, who is studying the impact of Fukushima fallout on aphids. The abnormalities are troubling not only because insects are commonly assumed to be more resistant to radiation than humans, but also because they suggest the Fukushima nuclear disaster may be changing individual species, even entire forests.

“There is no question that ecosystems as a whole are suffering,” Otaki says. “There has been a sudden, large change.”

How large and how long term are questions scientists are trying to answer as they study the effects of nuclear contamination on Fukushima’s forests. This is not the first landscape to provide such a grim opportunity. The worst nuclear accident in history occurred on April 26, 1986 when the Number 4 reactor at the VI Lenin Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant exploded. More than two decades of research in this disaster-created outdoor laboratory, however, have failed to resolve many questions about radiation’s effects on wildlife.

Now, as scientists move about these evacuated, largely forested regions thousands of miles apart, some like Otaki are finding evidence that even low levels of radiation can cause genetic damage that is passed down to new generations. It’s a controversial conclusion with an even more hotly disputed interpretation: As plants and animals continue to live in these irradiated environments, forests themselves may be evolving into different ecosystems.

The prospect of a permanently altered ecosystem is even more disturbing because of the decades – perhaps centuries – these nuclear forests will remain dangerous. Still beautiful in spite of the contamination, they stare us in the face with the uncomfortable truth that when our human adventures in high technology go awry and crash through the natural world, we are utterly unable to control the consequences. Nuclear forests may be the ultimate Anthropocene environment.

Both the Chernobyl and Fukushima power plants were located in small cities surrounded by farms and woodlands. When the disasters struck, radioactive fallout hit trees, shrubs, and grasses. In Chernobyl as much as 70 percent of the radionuclides fell on forests. Over time rain and snow washed plutonium, radiocesium, and other radioactive particles onto the forest floor. Plants and fungi soon began taking up these particles and passing them on to the leaves, berries, and pollen that insects and other animals eat. Traveling the very same biological pathways that normally bring sustaining nutrients to forest life, the radionuclides permeated entire ecosystems.

In Fukushima, many plants and animals are already highly contaminated, according to government and independent tests. One wild boar captured in December 2012 had 11,000 becquerels of radiocesium per kilogram of flesh – more than 100 times the level permitted for human consumption. Last spring, researchers found herons nesting in an area where radioactive cesium in the soil measured more than 24,000 becquerels per kilogram. “We humans can do a lot to avoid exposure. Animals can’t. They don’t know it’s dangerous,” says Kiyomi Yokota, a naturalist who had devoted his life to exploring the forests of Fukushima.

Forever Is a Long Time

Even when nuclear power plants perform as designed, they present a problem: What to do with the radioactive wastes? Some types of spent fuel will be dangerous for 240,000 years, others for more than 2 million years. Taking responsibility for these contaminants stretches the proverbial seven generations of sustainability to 11,000 human generations – an inconceivable time span.

So far the nuclear industry has not come up with a safe solution. Engineers have considered a range of possibilities that verge on science fiction at one extreme and reckless abandon at the other. The industry has considered sending radioactive waste into outer space – an option it considers attractive because it removes it from our environment. The risks, however, are potentially catastrophic: If the vessel carrying the waste has an accident, it could spread radioactive material into the atmosphere. Then there’s the
Antarctica solution – placing radioactive wastes on ice sheets where their own heat would bury them. But international treaties ban such activity and the notion of violating the planet’s last pristine continent has put a damper on the scheme.

There have been discussions about burying nuclear waste in the sea floor. One option involves encasing spent fuel in concrete and dropping it in torpedoes designed to penetrate it into the ocean bed. Even more audacious is the proposal to deposit radioactive waste in a subduction zone, where plate tectonics would slowly carry it downward into Earth’s mantle. Violating international oceanic agreements is just one of the reasons these approaches are not being seriously considered. Another is the fear of leaks and the resultant widespread contamination.

The current focus is on burying radioactive wastes underground. Finland is in the process of constructing the first of these deep geological repositories – a 1,710-foot-deep facility called Onkalo, which means “cavity” in Finnish. Engineered to last 100,000 years, the facility is supposed to be large enough to accept boron steel canisters of spent fuel for up to 100 years, when the cavity will be backfilled and sealed. Canister burial will begin in 2020.

The United States has also been pursuing deep burial. In 2002 Congress designated Nevada’s Yucca Mountain as a repository for spent fuel and other radioactive wastes. By then planners had already constructed a five-mile-long tunnel and a series of cathedral-like chambers to experiment with various storage designs. The Obama administration quashed the controversial project in 2010, leaving the country without a long-term storage site. The 65,000 tons of spent nuclear fuel from the 104 nuclear power plants in the US are currently stored onsite – 80 percent in water-filled pools, which are considered less safe than the steel casks that store the remaining 20 percent.

In addition to the technical challenges, nuclear power presents a political dilemma. No nation has lasted for 1,000 years, much less the 240,000 years plutonium will remain dangerous. Who will oversee radioactive waste when the governments of the 31 countries now producing it have crumbled? And how will these toxic repositories be identified when current languages are obsolete and the metal warning signs have rusted away?

The nuclear power industry faces an uncertain future unless it can successfully address waste management, says Allison Macfarlane, chair of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The post-Fukushima world demands redefining a successful nuclear power program to include not only the safe production of electricity but also the secure and sustainable lifecycle of nuclear power – from uranium mining to the disposal of spent fuel. If this cannot be achieved, Macfarlane says, “then the public in many countries will reject nuclear as an energy choice.”

Even 27 years after Chernobyl’s No. 4 reactor explosion, much of the 1,000-square-mile “Zone of Alienation” around the power plant is considered far too hot to allow residents to return. As much as 96 percent of the radionuclides that did not blow sky high and spew across the Soviet Union and northern Europe are still right there – in the fungi, needles, branches, roots, and soil of the forests that now cover almost three-fourths of the evacuated area. Instead of releasing the radiation into the atmosphere and water systems, the Chernobyl forests are holding it, a landscape-scale model of phytoremediation. It may be decades more before it is safe for human habitation.

Ukrainian officials have enshrined this “barrier function” of the contaminated forest in law, mandating that these lands be managed to contain the radionuclides. Japan, meanwhile, is leaning toward very different policies that would attempt to remove some of the contaminants from forests by cutting down trees, scraping up forest litter, and burying or burning the debris. The enormity of that task, however, means that Fukushima’s forests will likely end up holding fallout for many years.

The upshot for plants and wildlife is prolonged exposure to nuclear contaminants, with impacts that begin in the microscopic world of individual cells. As radionuclides decay, they emit energy. That energy can damage any part of a cell. If it damages DNA, the result can be cancer. If the damaged DNA is in sperm or egg cells, the changes can be passed to offspring and cause inherited deformities or illnesses. More radiation means a higher chance that these changes will occur. Scientists agree that high levels of radiation can cause fatal damage to living organisms, including humans. The debate surrounding Chernobyl, and now Fukushima, is over the effects of extended exposure to low levels of radiation.

Some scientists have disputed the causal link between the mutations Otaki found in pale grass blue butterflies and the radiation they were exposed to, but the results do not surprise Timothy Mousseau, a research biologist at University of South Carolina. A decade of field work in Chernobyl, and more recently in Fukushima, have convinced him that protracted exposure to radiation can have severe genetic consequences for organisms living in these contaminated environments.

On an early October afternoon, Mousseau crouched on a crumbling sidewalk in the middle of the ghost city of Pripyat patiently extracting a marsh tit from a mist net, one tiny toe at a time. Above the scientist and his quarry, the cracked and peeling walls of apartment buildings rose to 10 stories, their deserted balconies sporting poplar saplings instead of deck chairs. The long-abandoned city was built by the Soviets to house the families of workers at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant.

Marsh tits are fairly tolerant of radiation, but other birds are not, Mousseau says. Since he and his colleagues began studying 14 different species of birds found in Chernobyl, they have documented reduced numbers and decreased longevity, smaller brains in some birds, and as many as 40 percent of male birds without sperm. They have also found that barn swallows living in areas surrounding Chernobyl have genetic damage that appears to be increasing with subsequent generations. Mutation rates in young swallows are between two to 10 times higher than their parents, according to one study. Chronic exposure to radioactive contaminants 27 years after the accident continues to cause tumors and mutations in breeding swallows, Mousseau says. He has found no evidence that species are evolving in ways that protect them from radiation.

Ominous as these results are, Mousseau does not predict an eventual science fiction world of three-eyed rabbits and headless horses. Instead, he believes irradiated forests will simply become less vibrant versions of their former selves. “The net effect will be fewer offspring and smaller populations until some species just disappear,” he says.

Like Otaki, Mousseau was initially surprised by his findings. He assumed that natural selection would weed out abnormal individuals as time passed. “The irony is that because the radiation levels are low and nonlethal, organisms survive long enough to reproduce and thus transmit the mutations from one generation to the next,” Mousseau says.

Other scientists have documented genetic changes in the cells of Scots pines, the dominant Chernobyl forest tree. Higher levels of exposure stunted growth and led to oddly bushy trees. Vasyl Yoschenko, head of radioecological monitoring at the Ukraine Institute of Agricultural Radiology, says that could benefit more radiation-tolerant species with significant forest-wide impacts: “If the Scots pine disappears, this will be a different ecosystem,” he says. Even one generation of weakened Scots pines would have cascading consequences. When pines produce less pollen, bees, butterflies, and other pollinators suffer. Reduced pollination affects fruit trees, which in turn affects birds. Few studies have tracked these chain reactions. “It’s not something you see quickly, and for that reason the research is difficult,” Otaki says. Mousseau is more direct about the potential impacts: “It’s very likely that these Chernobyl and Fukushima areas will be permanently affected unless we come up with some magical way to remove and eliminate the radioactive material.”

Many scientists reject these conclusions. Numerous laboratory and field studies around Chernobyl have failed to document elevated rates of mutations or reduced survival rates among animals in higher radiation zones. As proof, some researchers tout the abundance of mammals – moose, roe deer, otters, and wild boar proliferating in the evacuation zone despite the radiation. Removing humans from the landscape is an ecological benefit of the accident, says Robert Baker, a biology professor at Texas Tech University.

Baker’s research, first published in 1996, found no tumors in any of the 400 bank voles he studied from the Chernobyl region, despite radiation exposure of many generations during all stages of their life cycles. In a 2009 project with several colleagues, Baker found voles in radioactive sites genetically similar to those elsewhere in Ukraine. He says the results suggest that genetic changes in radioactive regions of Ukraine are probably a function of natural geographic variation.

Although Baker and Mousseau disagree about the effect of radiation on forest species, both have called for more research. The largest body of evidence on inherited mutations comes from multigenerational studies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bomb survivors. It is inconclusive: A higher incidence of inherited deformities and disease has been neither confirmed nor definitively disproven in the children of survivors. Field research in Chernobyl, which got a late start due to Soviet politics, remains much less systematic than the atom bomb studies. And so far only a handful of biologists have launched field studies in Fukushima. Otaki believes the reason for that is partly political. “People are trying to forget what happened,” he says. As a result, funding for research like his is hard to come by. Baker hopes that will change. “Perhaps the accident in Japan will serve to highlight again the undeniable fact that our scientific grasp of radiation risk to the environment is surprisingly limited,” he says.

Pale grass blue butterflies still flutter in the Fukushima countryside, unaware they may be flirting with danger. Barn swallows dart around the forests of Chernobyl oblivious of the contamination they are carrying. For the hundreds of thousands of people forced to leave their homes in Japan, Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia, the radiation cycling from soil to treetop is an unnerving omnipresence. The forests they knew and depended upon now threaten instead of soothe, hiding unknowns where they once nurtured a community.

Kiyomi Yokota, the Fukushima naturalist, rarely takes his daughters to play in the woods as he did before the accident. The stress of making sure his three-year-old never touches the dirt or licks her fingers is simply too exhausting. “Just like that, everything changed,” he says. Amid the stress is a sadness fueled by the knowledge that the changes are human caused, that they are irrevocable, and that they will last long after those responsible for the nuclear accidents at Chernobyl and Fukushima have passed away.

U.S. bluefin tuna still contaminated with Fukushima radiation — Study: Cesium found in 100% of small, recently migrated tuna tested


Published: February 20th, 2013
By

Forbes, Feb. 20, 2013: […] Last week one of the authors of the study from last year, Daniel J. Madigan from Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station—along with five other scientists— published a new follow-up study. The main question that this new study wanted to answer: Would the migratory Bluefin tuna show up again a year later off the coast of California carrying radiation from Fukushima? The answer was yes. That means, ultimately, that there is still a high level of radiation in the waters near the Fukushima plant most likely because, as marine chemist, Ken Buessler, asserts, the plant is still leaking radiation into the ocean nearly two years later. […]

Study Excerpts: […] All small PBFT (n = 28; recent migrants from Japan) had 134Cs and elevated 137Cs in their white muscle tissue. […] We used small PBFT, known to be migrants from Japan, to test whether all migrants would demonstrate a measurable radiocesium signal from Fukushima. […] All of the small PBFT (63.1−72.3 cm SL; ageest = 1.3−1.6 years; n = 28; hereafter “small PBFT”) had measurable concentrations of 134Cs […] Detection of 134Cs and elevated 137Cs in 100% of small, recently migrated PBFT in 2012 suggests that other species that forage near Japan have a high probability of acquiring 134Cs and 137Cs […]

Note: As I’ve reported in the past all seafood is toxic, go to gotmercury.org to read more about mercury levels and calculate how much you’re taking in weekly based on species and intake. Tuna is some of the most toxic, along with bottom feeders like crab, lobster and shrimp. Unfortunately the only research being conducted is on mercury and what little we of about radiation contamination, no research on PCB’s or the 76,000 or more industrial toxins being exposed to environmental waters. The toxins from chemtrails are reaching every single body of water on the planet, no matter how remote they may be they are still exposed to rain from the jet stream and clouds infected with toxins from other parts of the world.

 

Nuclear Sabotage at Fukushima by Jim Stone


Guest:  “Jim Stone” -Freelance Photographer, Reporter

Tonight’s guest has worked for the National Security agency with an above top secret clearance specializing in Electronic Warfare. He also has extensive experience in automated industrial control systems, as well as an extensive background in computers and advanced electronics. He has dedicated his life to exposing the works of the elite from a technology standpoint and has achieved a unique status which enables him to commit a vast amount of time to research complex and demanding subjects.

He is here tonight to discuss his study into the events leading up to the disaster at Fukushima, and to offer a well researched opinion on what the future holds for Fukushima, Japan, and the rest of the world.

1)- The Earthquake was not 9.0 but 6.2, as reported by all station.
2)- Reactor #4 was disassembled in repair, so, how could it explode/meltdown?
3)- Rectors were huge and case hardened, but, were completely destroyed by a supposed hydrogen blast?
4- The automatic backup systems were told to stand down and needed no power to work (being powered by steam!).
5)- There was NO earthquake damage from the largest quake ever to hit Japan before the Tsunami hit.

There is SOOOO much more… ending with proof they were destroyed by a nuke NOT the earthquake or Tsunami. Follow along from his webpage as Jim shows step by step proof, this was not an act of nature, but, and act of war.

Scroll to bottom of page, Jim’s interview is the second download link and last half of the show. Use the PDF below to follow along because there a quite a few graphic illustrations, photo’s and links with evidence to prove Jim’s claims.  LISTEN HEAR

Japanese Island of Toshiba Makes Dolphins Citizens


Thursday, August 16, 2012

On a small island 100 miles from Tokyo islanders, mostly fishermen, have declared resident dolphins to be citizens, fully protected while in the island’s waters

On Sept. 1st of this year the annual dolphin slaughter will take place in Taiji Cove, Japan. Japan is a nation where up to 20,000 dolphins are killed yearly. So a new development recently in Japan is wonderful news in stark contrast as to what usually goes on in Japan. On a small island 100 miles from Tokyo islanders, mostly fishermen, have declared resident dolphins to be citizens, fully protected while in the island’s waters.

This tiny island is called Toshima Island. The fishermen there want to show the world how some Japanese revere and protect wild dolphins. A long time Japanese ally, Elsa Nature Conservancy, has pledged to help the Toshima Islanders educate Japan about the wonders of wild dolphins.

The Toshima Dolphin Project as it is known will expand knowledge of this unique island and the relationship between the people of the island and its 16 resident dolphins. The project will provide a vision that will inspire their fellow countrymen and bring to them an understanding of the importance of allowing dolphins to remain free and safe from hunters’ blades.

This is a description of the Toshima Dolphin Project written by Sakae Hemmi of Elsa Nature Conservancy. “In 1995 a dolphin came to Toshima waters and remained. In 1998 the dolphin, named Koko, gave birth. The baby was called Piko. The mother and baby were so revered that they were registered as citizens of the island. Around 2010 several dolphins from Mikura island moved to Toshima and several have given birth. As of February 2012, a pod of 16 dolphins swims in the waters of Toshima.”

The Dolphin Project was originally spearheaded by a Mr.Moriyama. Unfortunately the Mr. Moriyama, died in February of this year. But others have picked up the cause because they feel so strongly that this message must get out. Currently funds are urgently needed to finish the project website, send a video team to the island to film the dolphins and fishermen and to make a DVD for release in Japan. They also plan to hold a symposium in Tokyo on dolphins in Japanese waters.

But the main message that The Toshima Dolphin Project wants to portray was expressed by Sakae Hemmi as: “I think it important to have many people learn and experience that wild dolphins are animals that we can make friends with and live together. Toshima is a very important place to raise the Japanese people’s consciousness to protect wild dolphins.”

Hopefully with the efforts of these wonderful fishermen from Toshima Island there may soon come a day when all dolphins can live off the Japanese coast without threat of dying in such a cruel manner as currently takes place in Taiji Cove.
