The Babies and Young Children Are Dying

There now exists a new rule-of-thumb regarding the media: the less the media says about something the more dangerous it is. The thing that tells us we are in serious danger is the almost complete absence of anything in the papers about the dangers coming from Fukushima. The news is so bad that they cannot and will not print anything about it.

But now we have very disturbing reports about a 35% spike in infant mortality in Northwest cities since the meltdown in Fukushima. Dr. Janette Sherman and Joseph Mangano wrote:

U.S. babies are dying at an increased rate. The recent CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report indicates that eight cities in the northwest U.S. (Boise ID, Seattle WA, Portland OR plus the northern California cities of Santa Cruz, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Jose and Berkeley) reported the following data on deaths among those younger than one year of age:

4 weeks ending March 19, 2011: 37 deaths (avg. 9.25 per week)
10 weeks ending May 28, 2011: 125 deaths (avg. 12.50 per week)

This amounts to an increase of 35% (the total for the entire U.S. rose about 2.3%), and is statistically significant. Of further significance is that those dates include the four weeks before and the ten weeks after the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster. In 2001 the infant mortality was 6.834 per 1000 live births, increasing to 6.845 in 2007. All years from 2002 to 2007 were higher than the 2001 rate.

Indignant Corinthians Vote To Send Parliamentarians Home

An unofficial translation:



Resolution of the open assembly of Corinth's 'Perivolakia' Square to the Ministers of Parliament of Corinthia Prefecture

Ladies and Gentlemen, we hired you and we are firing you.
You no longer represent us.
You did not respect the countr that raised us.
You did not respect the elderly.
You did not respect our children's dreams.
You respected nothing and only one thing is certain.
That you will not remain unpunished.
Self-organization in the squares will bring the storm upon your heads.

Open Assembly of Corinth's 'Perivolakia' Square
 
TUESDAY 14 MAY AT 18:30 WE WILL GATHER AT 'PERIVOLAKIA' SQUARE FROM WHERE A MARCH SHALL BEGIN TOWARDS THE POLITICAL OFFICES OF CORINTHIA PREFECTURE'S FOUR MP'S (FOR PRACTICAL AND MORAL REASONS WE DECIDED TO GO TO THEIR POLITICAL OFFICES RATHER THAN THEIR HOMES AS INITIALLY PROPOSED) WHERE THE RESOLUTION WILL BE DELIVERED TO THEM.

WE ARE NOT ENTERING INTO DIALOGUE WITH THEM, NOR ARE WE ASKING FOR SOMETHING FROM OUR ENEMIES. ON THE CONTRARY, WE RENDER THEM OBSOLETE AND SERVE THEM NOTICE THAT A REVERSE COUNTDOWN HAS BEGUN FOR THEM AND THEIR POLICY WHICH LED US TO THE PRESENT SITUATION.

Up to No Good: 'New war likely on Bilderberg agenda'


RT's Bill Dod talks to Tony Gosling, an investigative journalist from Bristol, UK, about what might be the main agenda behind all the security and closed doors at this year's meeting of the Bilderberg Group in Switzerland.

Eurozone Straitjacket: 'Govt plans pillage of Greece!'


Thousands have been out on the streets of Athens in protest against the second round of austerity measures debated in the Greek Parliament. People don't want new taxes or wage cuts - but without them the country will not receive international bailout money.

Fear Factor - Big Brother Will Text Terror Threats to Your Mobile!


http://VoxRox.co - Exposing the lies believed to be real... 

In America, 'Big Brother' has a mobile and he's learnt how to text. The U.S. government now has a system which can send emergency alerts to everyone. From blizzards to terror threats - the warnings will go straight to people's phones. But as Marina Portnaya reports, many feel it's creating needless panic.

DEBTOCRACY - Odious Debt And How Greece Beat The NWO


Explanation of Debtocracy -- Odious Debt -- and Greece can be found at http://www.debtocracy.gr
and 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKpxPo-lInk [see below]
The IMF-EU bailout deal for Greece is in fact an anti-constitutional agreement. The debt crisis in many countries of the eurozone (Greece, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Portugal etc) is nothing more than illegitimate debt that benefits world banks, financial creditors and European governments. 

"The provisions included in the loan contract and the bailout deal for Greece violates all principles of the Greek constitution and European and International Law".

"Greece is financing a part of debt in the form of bonds by the Government authorities ("securitization of public debt"), a technique used by Ecuador. Another large part of the Greek debt is in the form of bank loans, which is also the case for developing countries. [...] "Ecuador s debt was mainly owed to the banks in the U.S. In 200 Ecuador abandoned its national currency and adopted the U.S. Dollar, the currency of its lender. Similarly Greece has the same currency with its lenders, such as France and Germany, the Euro". (Ethnos, 9 January 2011).

The theory of the "odious debt" is not a general or newly-founded concept. It is based on the principles of international law (U.N. Charter) and can be legally used when the debt "has been incurred, not in the interests of people, but against its interests and/or in the personal interest of the rulers or persons close to the regime.

For the first time in Greece a documentary produced by the audience. "Debtocracy" seeks the causes of the debt crisis and proposes solutions, hidden by the government and the dominant media.

Phone-hacking scandal: Jonathan Rees obtained information using dark arts

Nick Davies reports for the Guardian:


Years ago, Jonathan Rees became a freemason. According to journalists and investigators who worked with him, he then exploited his link with the lodges to meet masonic police officers who illegally sold him information which he peddled to Fleet Street.

As one of Britain's most prolific merchants of secrets, Rees expanded his network of sources by recruiting as his business partner Sid Fillery, a detective sergeant from the Metropolitan Police. Fillery added more officers to their network. Rees also boasted of recruiting corrupt Customs officers, a corrupt VAT inspector and two corrupt bank employees.

Other police contacts are said to have been blackmailed into providing confidential information. One of Rees's former associates claims that Rees had compromising photographs of serving officers, including one who was caught in a drunken state with a couple of prostitutes and with a toilet seat around his neck.

It is this network of corruption which lies at the heart of yesterday's claim in the House of Commons by Labour MP Tom Watson that Rees was targeting politicians, members of the royal family and even terrorist informers on behalf of Rupert Murdoch's News International. The Guardian's own inquiries suggest that Watson knows what he is talking about.

Much of what the police sources were able to sell to Rees was directly related to crime. But Rees also bought and sold confidential data on anybody who was of interest to his Fleet Street clients, to which the police often had special access. The Guardian has confirmed that Rees reinforced his official contacts with two specialist 'blaggers' who would telephone the Inland Revenue, the DVLA, banks and phone companies and trick them into handing over private data.
