The Death of the Pacific Ocean

July 30, 2013

We're ALL Mad Here

Fukushima; Deadly Silence

(excerpt)

Unlike with the Chernobyl disaster in Russia, entombing the reactors in concrete is not feasible in this case on account of the location being right on the coast; and there it is folks, the genie is out of the bottle and cannot EVER be put back in. We lack the technology to fix this growing planetary disaster. We don’t know how to stop it ~ and so they just let it continue to spew deadly radioactive isotopes into the air, as they continue to dump millions of gallons of radioactive waste water directly into the pacific ocean in flagrant violation of international law, and environmental treaties. And the world media is nearly silent. Wouldn’t you think that this story would be top of every news cycle until it was fixed? Not on this prison planet. The subject is on the taboo list right along with the ongoing oil leaking in the gulf, and chemtrails in our skies. Our keepers just keep it out of the news, knowing that the soon to be extinct American Ostrich will obediently keep ignoring it as well, pretending the problem is solved even though we know better.

In the natural world when most animals sense or see an imminent threat to its life it either runs away to safety, or stands it’s ground and fights. Not us. We just go on about our little robot lives with that thousand yard stare of cognitive dissonance, because we know there is nowhere to run from the Fukushima monster; and we know not how to fight it when all the worlds governments are so strangely silent and sitting on their collective hands. What insane madness is this? Can we all not clearly see by this late date that the frog or lobster in the simmering pot, is US?? Instead of filling the streets with protests large enough to strangle commerce & transportation, we join in the deafening silence about Fukushima radiation, and create elaborate psychological scenarios for ourselves to justify not only our silence, but our continued consumption of seafood from the pacific ocean, as well as GMO food-like-products from Monsanto. We convince ourselves somehow that if we can just ignore it strongly enough the whole problem will just vanish into thin air. Life doesn’t work like that, and we know this, yet, indulge in this planetary denial just the same. This then indeed seems to me, a most special and rewarding sort of madness.

The Death of the Pacific Ocean

In order to prevent core meltdown and a much, much worse planetary disaster the Japanese have to keep cooling water flowing over the damaged reactors at all times. This of course requires nearly astronomical amounts of fresh water which the country just doesn’t have, so they have been using sea water from the onset of the crisis. Now, it doesn’t take much of an IQ to understand that dumping that contaminated, radioactive wastewater directly back into the pacific ocean is about the worst thing you could possibly do; which is why the practice is banned by several treaties and international law. Why does the international community allow this crime against humanity to continue unabated? Already I can imagine some who will flinch at my use of the term crime against humanity, but what else can you call it when a sovereign nation deliberately contaminates a major world food source while at the same time the radiation spewing from those crippled reactors continues to flow around the entire world. There is no safe place. You can run, but you’ll just die tired!

*Fukushima – Cover It Up

(excerpt)

I saw a headline come across the television screen this week that said, “Japanese officials now believe some radiated water from the Fukushima reactors may have leaked into the Pacific Ocean.” What? Could it be that at this point in time our memories are supposed to have been erased by our exposure to the radiation? Is this an attempt to rewrite recent history?

Not only was it previously reported that radiated water from the plant was leaking into the ocean, but those of us who were watching the events unfold know that radiated water from the reactors was pumped into a tanker ship, taken offshore, and deliberately dumped into the Pacific Ocean. Not only were those reactors leaking then, they are in fact leaking now, as nothing has been done to stop the hemorrhaging.

The Japanese government and TEPCO are guilty of crimes against humanity, as their neglect is compounded through their continued neglect and complete disregard, not only for human life, but for all life upon this planet.

13 large banks CHARGED

Banks accused of colluding to protect Euro credit derivatives revenue

(excerpts)

BRUSSELS, July 1 (UPI) — Antitrust regulators in Europe charged 13 large banks Monday with colluding to prevent new competitors from entering the credit derivatives market.

The European Commission said the banks, market research firm Markit Economics and the International Swaps and Derivatives Association colluded to block Deutsche Borse and CME from entering the market.

The commission said Markit Economics, the trade association and the 13 banks worked together from 2006 through 2009 to prevent the exchanges from entering the market.

The New York Times reported Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, Barclays, BNP Paribas, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Royal Bank of Scotland, UBS and collapsed investment firm Bear Stearns were named as taking part in the collusion.

*Prosecuting bankers: Blind justice

(excerpt)

For better or worse, many people would love to see more bankers behind bars for their role in blowing up the West’s financial system. In Britain not one senior banker has faced criminal charges relating to the failure of his institution. A handful have faced the lesser sanction of being barred from running another bank or company, or agreeing in settlements with regulators not to do so. (Policymakers have proposed introducing a “rebuttable presumption” that the directors of a failed bank should be automatically barred from running another unless they could prove they weren’t at fault.)

Chalking a Crime?

California man faces 13 years in jail for scribbling anti-bank messages in chalk

Jeff Olson, the 40-year-old man who is being prosecuted for scrawling anti-megabank messages on sidewalks in water-soluble chalk last year now faces a 13-year jail sentence. A judge has barred his attorney from mentioning freedom of speech during trial.

According to the San Diego Reader, which reported on Tuesday that a judge had opted to prevent Olson’s attorney from “mentioning the First Amendment, free speech, free expression, public forum, expressive conduct, or political speech during the trial,” Olson must now stand trial for on 13 counts of vandalism.

In addition to possibly spending years in jail, Olson will also be held liable for fines of up to $13,000 over the anti-big-bank slogans that were left using washable children’s chalk on a sidewalk outside of three San Diego, California branches of Bank of America, the massive conglomerate that received $45 billion in interest-free loans from the US government in 2008-2009 in a bid to keep it solvent after bad bets went south.

*Chalk the Bank, make a statement at any branch location

(Facebook, 2011)

In solidarity with occupy wall street we plan to show some LOV3 to the Federal Reserve Bank of Phoenix in the most peace full way we know how, Children’s Chalk! This Saturday some friend and I will be heading to the FED Bank in Phoenix and chalking the sidewalk in front of the Fed cash processing center, Your welcome to join us or Chalk you own message in front of a bank in your neighborhood.

Update 3-7-2013:

Bank of America protester acquitted of vandalism

A jury deliberated for less than five hours on Monday before deciding to acquit 40-year-old Jeff Olson on the 13 counts of vandalism he was charged with after protesting Bank of America using children’s chalk, Reuters reported.

Everything Is Rigged: The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever

(excerpt)

These banks, which already possess enormous power just by virtue of their financial holdings – in the United States, the top six banks, many of them the same names you see on the Libor and ISDAfix panels, own assets equivalent to 60 percent of the nation’s GDP – are beginning to realize the awesome possibilities for increased profit and political might that would come with colluding instead of competing. Moreover, it’s increasingly clear that both the criminal justice system and the civil courts may be impotent to stop them, even when they do get caught working together to game the system.

If true, that would leave us living in an era of undisguised, real-world conspiracy, in which the prices of currencies, commodities like gold and silver, even interest rates and the value of money itself, can be and may already have been dictated from above. And those who are doing it can get away with it. Forget the Illuminati – this is the real thing, and it’s no secret. You can stare right at it, anytime you want.

The Secret of the Seven Sisters

April 14, 2013

Episode 1 – Desert Storms

A four-part series that reveals how a secret pact formed a cartel that controls the world’s oil.

In the first episode, we travel across the Middle East, through both time and space.
Throughout the region’s modern history, since the discovery of oil, the Seven Sisters have sought to control the balance of power.

They have supported monarchies in Iran and Saudi Arabia, opposed the creation of OPEC, profiting from the Iran-Iraq war, leading to the ultimate destruction of Saddam Hussein and Iraq.

*The Secret of the Seven Sisters

Episode 2 – The Black El Dorado

At the end of the 1960s, the Seven Sisters, the major oil companies, controlled 85 percent of the world’s oil reserves. Today, they control just 10 percent.

New hunting grounds are therefore required, and the Sisters have turned their gaze towards Africa. With peak oil, wars in the Middle East, and the rise in crude prices, Africa is the oil companies’ new battleground.

(Excerpt)

I’m going to present a picture, an image for meditation, if you will. I would like you to consider it as an accurate portrayal of the way things really are. This kind of thing is helpful when it becomes resident in enough minds. I would like you to consider that the eroding PTW are, quite simply ♫just running scared♫, cue Roy Orbison. Don’t be seduced by their power plays and bold fronts. Who, not scared out of their wits, orders billions of bullets? Of course, the prime motivator and motive for all of their twisted, fascistic carryings on, is due to their knowing, bone deep, that they are doing wrong and have been for a considerable period of time. Eventually this sort of thing gets to you, right around the time you start to notice that hot breath on the nape of your neck.

Obama signed HR-933 bill

March 30, 2013

Jeffrey M. Smith: Monsanto, GMO Seeds of Destruction

“Outrageous! That’s what you’ll say over and over again when you read how the biotechnology companies have manipulated the government, our food, and the media, and put an entire generation at risk.”

*GMO? ~ Oh HELL No !

(Excerpt)

So, this week while everybody thought they were going to see history being made for gay rights, Obama was quietly signing HR-933 which has come to be known as the Monsanto protection act. Now this bill itself had nothing to do with GMO’s but rather was an important bill ensuring the continued funding of the government. The part that protects Monsanto against any possible future legal action was actually what they call a Rider…which is always some filthy little piece of business lacking the merit to be passed on it’s own, so they let it become a stowaway aboard an important bill they all agreed ahead of time to pass. And that boys & girls is how we get such dystopian rules passed into law in America. Even though over 250,000 people signed an emergency petition to kill the bill, they were ignored, Obama ignored them and signed it anyway. The other thing being ignored is the most obvious, if Monsanto & Obama think Monsanto needs protection from legal action, then they must know They’re doing something illegal! Of course all this is a bit easier to comprehend when you come to realize that many former Monsanto executives have now found comfortable employment within the white house.

What about all this is so hard for you sleeping dreamers to comprehend? If you keep quiet hoping to somehow sneak thru you’ll only die disappointed. This HR-933 bill becoming law is pretty much the first chapter of the endgame; and unless millions upon millions of us fill the streets the way you did when I was in Vietnam, we might never get out from under all this. 50 other nations ban or outlaw GMO-food-like-products, but here we just put the fox in charge of the henhouse and continue turning a deaf ear to all things unpleasant or beyond our control.

Final Pic-WE SALUTE YOU

Update 1-4-2013:

*Stop the Monsanto Protection Act Update: Bill Signed Into Law by President Obama – America Betrayed

(Excerpt)

From Amanda Brodhagen from Farm.com:

“The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed a last-minute amendment to the Agriculture Appropriations Bill (HR933) – a provision that would protect genetically modified seeds (GMOs) from litigation over health risks. It is known as the Senate’s continuing resolution bill, which provides short-term funding to the federal government until the end of the fiscal year. The vote was 318 to 109 in favour of passing the Bill.

Opponents have dubbed it the “Monsanto Protection Act,” since the biotech rider would strip the federal courts authority to stop GMO seed crops from being grown – even if there is consumer health concerns.

The bill has a six-month expiration life and it remains unknown if this provision will be short-lived or if it will be extended.

Basic Income, a new human right

March 26, 2013

Sign the petition here: http://basicincome2013.eu
Follow us on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ECI.BasicIncome

Basic Income should be universal, individual, unconditional and high enough to ensure a dignified existence and participation in society.

This new fundamental right for humanity, not only would eradicate misery, it is also a way to develop non-market oriented work: such as artists, parents and volunteers. But it’s also an economic measure! A basic income for all would mean supporting local business.

Therefore, it would enable us to fully exercise our citizenship.
