Fukushima out of control

A very concerning update on what’s happening at Fukushima. In my view, it is a global catastrophe for which traditional tools have no answer. And all the while, the nuclear industry and ostriches continue to promote this technology.

TAO Revealed: The NSA’s ‘top secret weapon’

There has been a lot of press coverage of the Der Spiegel article on the TAO hacking program today. Here is a brief overview from RT and a more detailed interview about the ramifications of this with Glenn Greenwald by Amy Goodman.

For an in depth discussion of this and way beyond it, here is Jake Applebaum (@ioerror), one of the authors of the Der Spiegel article, presenting at the 30c3 conference in Germany today – well worth watching if you are interested in the depth of this surveillance. It will blow your mind, to use Jake’s words.

Here is the Der Spiegel article (there are 3 pages).

Here is an example of the NSA technology.

I will end with this with a tidbit from Mark Phillips, who told us many years ago that he was informed that all United States school children have been profiled SINCE 1952!!! They didn’t have much technology back then… Imagine what’s being done now. Mark knew about it because it was why those who employed him were interested in him. Mark did not speak for many years, I believe until he was a teenager, and they were interested in the workings of his brain…

For me, the idea that this is about terrorism (a US Government invention to begin with) is a complete sideshow. This is about complete tracking and control of every human being on the planet.

Thank you, Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, Jake Applebaum and everyone else willing to put themselves on the line to share this with us.

A miracle in Wisconsin

Jon Rappoport shares a great story about the impact of diet on children.

A Miracle in Wisconsin

by Jon Rappoport

December 30, 2013

I published this article in October of 2002. At the time, it was the most widely read piece I’d written and posted on my site. Its basics still hold up.

What I didn’t mention at the time was the corrosive role school-food distributors and their allies on boards of education play in the health of children.

These are the people who operate a corrupt system and mandate the feeding of toxic and nutritionally empty junk to students across the country.

One school took another path:

A revolution has occurred in Appleton, Wisconsin.. It’s taken place in the Central Alternative High School. The kids now behave. The hallways aren’t frantic. Even the teachers are happy.

The school used to be out of control. Kids packed weapons. Discipline problems swamped the principal’s office.

But not since 1997.

What happened? Did they line every inch of space with cops? Did they spray Valium gas in the classrooms? Did they install metal detectors in the bathrooms? Did they build holding cells in the gym?

Afraid not. In 1997, a private group called Natural Ovens began installing a healthy lunch program.

Fast-food burgers, fries, and burritos gave way to fresh salads, meats “prepared with old-fashioned recipes,” and whole grain bread. Fresh fruits were added to the menu. Good drinking water arrived.

Vending machines were removed.

As reported in a newsletter called Pure Facts, “Grades are up, truancy is no longer a problem, arguments are rare, and teachers are able to spend their time teaching.”

Principal LuAnn Coenen, who files annual reports with the state of Wisconsin, has turned in some staggering figures since 1997. Drop-outs? Students expelled? Students discovered to be using drugs? Carrying weapons? Committing suicide? Every category has come up ZERO. Every year.

Mary Bruyette, a teacher, states, “I don’t have to deal with daily discipline issues. I don’t have disruptions in class or the difficulties with student behavior I experienced before we started the food program.”

One student asserted, “Now that I can concentrate I think it’s easier to get along with people.” What a concept—eating healthier food increases concentration.

Principal Coenen sums it up: “I can’t buy the argument that it’s too costly for schools to provide good nutrition for their students. I found that one cost will reduce another. I don’t have the vandalism. I don’t have the litter. I don’t have the need for high security.”

At a nearby middle school, the new food program is catching on. A teacher there, Dennis Abram, reports, “I’ve taught here almost 30 years. I see the kids this year as calmer, easier to talk to. They just seem more rational. I had thought about retiring this year and basically I’ve decided to teach another year—I’m having too much fun!”

Pure Facts, the newsletter that ran this story, is published by a non-profit organization called The Feingold Association, which has existed since 1976. Part of its mission is to “generate public awareness of the potential role of foods and synthetic additives in behavior, learning and health problems. The [Feingold] program is based on a diet eliminating synthetic colors, synthetic flavors, and the preservatives BHA, BHT, and TBHQ.”

Thirty years ago there was a Dr. Feingold. His breakthrough work proved the connection between these negative factors in food and the lives of children. Hailed as a revolutionary advance, Feingold’s findings were soon trashed by the medical cartel, since those findings threatened the drugs-for-everything, disease-model concept of modern healthcare.

But Feingold’s followers have kept his work alive.

If what happened in Appleton, Wisconsin, takes hold in many other communities across America, perhaps the ravenous corporations who invade school space with their vending machines and junk food will be tossed out on their behinds. It could happen.

And perhaps ADHD will become a dinosaur. A non-disease that was once attributed to errant brain chemistry. And perhaps Ritalin will be seen as just another toxic chemical that was added to the bodies of kids in a crazed attempt to put a lid on behavior that, in part, was the result of a subversion of the food supply.

For those readers who ask me about solutions to the problems we face—here is a real solution. Help these groups. Get involved. Step into the fray. Stand up and be counted.

The drug companies aren’t going to do it. They’re busy estimating the size of their potential markets. They’re building their chemical pipelines into the minds and bodies of the young.

Every great revolution starts with a foothold. Sounds like Natural Ovens and The Feingold Association have made strong cuts into the big rock of ignorance and greed.
