Heavy Steam at Fukushima Continues: The Matrix Prevails

Majia's Blog at Majia's Blog - 10 hours ago
I observed the ice wall efforts at Fukushima indirectly via webcam surveillance. I noticed a decrease in visible atmospheric emissions from the area around unit 3 on the cams when the ice wall was activated. Unfortunately, that decrease around unit 3 has proved temporary, as the screenshots at the bottom of this post illustrate. Unit 1's emissions and the common spent fuel pool emissions seemed less visibly impacted by the ice wall. I think there must be really hot fuel inside unit 1 (maybe in the spent fuel pool) because I frequently have seen a crane lower some sort of contrapt... more »

ObamaCare is not disappearing as a horse-collar around our necks, but it is disappearing as a provider of actual decent health care. Many taxpayers are opting to pay the tax penalty rather than pay exorbitant health insurance premiums, only then to find out that the very high deductibles prevent them from using their health insurance at all. Indeed, many with ObamaCare health insurance cannot afford to actually go to the doctor for health care after their impoverishment by the high premiums. As a result, insurers operating in the ObamaCare exchange health insurance market are gen... more »

Behind RAND's US-China War Plans

Land Destroyer at Land Destroyer - 19 hours ago
*September 5, 2016* (Joseph Thomas - NEO) - The RAND Corporation was commissioned to publish a report titled, "War with China: Thinking Through the Unthinkable," in which it describes its assessment of possible war between the US and China in the Pacific in both 2015 and in 2025. The report's introduction summarised its findings, stating: *Premeditated war between the United States and China is very unlikely, but the danger that a mishandled crisis could trigger hostilities cannot be ignored. Thus, while neither state wants war, both states' militaries have plans to fight one. As Chi... more »

Why Did The Vatican Remove 14 Books From The Bible In 1684?

Baxter Dmitry at Your News Wire - 22 hours ago
The Vatican church, or the Roman Catholic church, has a long and dark history of corruption and deception. From committing acts of outright genocide centuries ago against the Cathars, to sexually abusing children in more modern times, the church is certainly one of the most corrupt organizations in history. In the year 1611 the Bible was translated from Latin into English. Back then the Bible contained a total of 80 books and the last 14 books, which today have been excluded, made up the end of the Old Testament. They were as follows: 1 Esdras 2 Esdras Tobit Judith The rest of Esthe... more »

Clinton Foundation Admit 85% Of Donations Do Not Go To Charity

The Clinton Foundation is a giant vampire squid with its filaments wrapped around the world and its blood funnel jamming relentlessly into anything that smells like money. That’s OK, people say, it’s a charity. They might be right on paper, but make no mistake – the main beneficiaries of the Clinton Foundation are the Clintons. What percentage of Clinton Foundation money goes to real and actual charities? If you define “actual charities not controlled by the Clintons” as “programmatic grants,” then it appears the number is 15%. The Clinton Foundation argues the figure is much higher.... more »

Obama Secretly Extends 9/11 “State of National Emergency”

Sean Adl-Tabatabai at Your News Wire - 1 day ago
President Barack Obama has quietly extended the “state of national emergency” in America for another year, citing the 9/11 attacks as justification. Fifteen years ago the Bush administration, in response to the September 11 attacks, declared a “war on terror” – giving the White House vast new powers that saw the diminishing of citizen’s constitutional rights. Thefreethoughtproject.com reports: Key to this was the declaration of a “State of National Emergency” on September 14, 2001.

Oil Pipeline Company Turns Dogs on Dakota Protesters

Bruce K. Gagnon at Organizing Notes - 1 day ago
On September 3, the Dakota Access pipeline company attacked Native Americans with dogs and pepper spray as they protested against the $3.8 billion pipeline's construction. If completed, the pipeline would carry about 500,000 barrels of crude per day from North Dakota’s Bakken oilfield to Illinois. The project has faced months of resistance from the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and members of nearly 100 more tribes from across the U.S. and Canada. (Thanks to Jeff Kunz for the assistance.)
