Scientific Supporting texts from ‘Banning Uranium Weapons’ seminar, UN Oct 8th 2008.

Leave a comment

Recent articles appearing here in the PPJ have elicited comments to the effect that depleted uranium does not pose any danger to land, water or persons.  Apparently there are many countries, scientists and other highly qualified people around the world who have a different view.  But…I suppose they are all just liars and not qualified to make such statements (sarc).

While researching to prove out the claims that DU presents no significant threat either to indigenous populations where it is used, or to military personnel who might be exposed to DU,( something that would make me feel much better) I noted that reports of exposure were not annotated in the health reports of veterans.  Also, that any attempts to set up regimented screening and testing to prove the assertion that DU was not a physical threat, all seemed to just fade into obscurity. 

Even the  [US ARMY TRAINING VIDEO: Depleted Uranium Hazard Awareness]   seems to be disregarded in its admonishments that DU contaminates water, soil and personnel and represents a significant threat to the health of those exposed to it.  This training video was made in the early 90’s…but until recently was never shown to military personnel.  Even now, it is on a limited basis.

The National Defense Authorization Act of 2007 signed into law by President Bush in October of 2006, contained legislation pertaining to depleted uranium. Section 716 called for a comprehensive study of the health effects of depleted uranium (DU) due to the use of DU weapons, to be completed within a year. The U.S. Department of Defense asked the National Research Council to oversee this project and the result was The Review of Toxicologic and Radiologic Risks to Military Personnel from Exposure to Depleted Uranium

http://www.nap.edu/catalog.php?record_id=11979  During and After Combat published by the National Academies of Sciences in 2008.

Although this is a scientific report and concludes the lungs would be the most available point of transfer of DU dust, it is conspicuously absent in actual testing of the lungs of those exposed to DU.

The report leaves out over two dozen recent peer-reviewed articles, mostly indicating potentially harmful effects of DU.

A wide range of scientific articles and observations can be read at this same site.

H.R. 2410, The Depleted Uranium Munitions Act, 

Congressman Jim McDermott (D-WA) 109th congress & 110th congress (never addressed)

 

There are multiple bills that have been introduced since 2004 to establish testing, screening and protective measures for military personnel.  Each of them is routinely referred to one committee or another where they are allowed to die a quiet death.  These three are given only as example.

 

Twenty states have introduced or passed legislation regarding depleted uranium testing and study.  Connecticut had implemented their own law by the end of 2006 establishing a health registry for military personnel related to exposure to depleted uranium. At lest twenty other states are considering the same things.

 

April 10, 2007: Star Tribune (Minn., Mn.) reports a state Senate committee OK’d a bill providing for testing veteran national guardsmen returning from Iraq to see if dust from spent-uranium munitions has harmed them. Link: www.startribune.com/587/story/1112856.html.

 

 

There are still those who maintain that depleted uranium poses no health risks or environmental contamination.  If this is true, why do sites that have been exposed to these munitions have to be routinely [decontaminated]? Although I would like to believe DU poses no threat, the fact remains that if it didn’t, it wouldn’t be used.  The idea that it might possibly be poisoning the environment, causing damage to human beings must fall under the category of [collateral damage].  One of those unexpected perks of wars.

Silent Sound Spread Spectrum (SSSS) & the All-Digital TV Broadcast Signal: Connection?

____Reprinted per reader requests.  Original printing January of 2009

____________________________________________________________________________

Ever since first hearing of it last spring, I’ve had a deepening sense of foreboding – an unnamed dread of the upcoming shift to an all-digital television broadcast signal, scheduled to occur in February 2009. Now, I believe, that nameless dread may have a name, after all.

The Department of Defense calls it Silent Sound Spread Spectrum (SSSS), and it also goes by the name of S-quad or Squad. In the private sector, the technology goes by the name of Silent Subliminal Presentation System and the technology has also been released to certain corporate vendors who have attached catchy brand names like BrainSpeak Silent Subliminals to their own SSSS-based products.

MN Government planning to STEAL your medical data…to RATION your care!

Leave a comment

Your action needed immediately!

DEADLINE – Friday, February 6, 2009.


MN Government planning to STEAL your medical data…to RATION your care!The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) held a public meeting yesterday (1/29) to discuss their timetable for government warehousing and analysis of the medical records data of all Minnesotans for the purpose of centralizing medical decision-making…and limiting your access to care. (see quotes below)

List of your Medical/Insurance/Pharmacy Data that will be sent to Government

They plan to ramrod this plan through…and avoid all public input.

The 2008 health care reform bill negotiated by Governor Pawlenty and House and Senate leadership authorized “expedited rulemaking” therefore stripping citizens of their right to ask for a public hearing before a judge on this plan to seize the private patient data of every citizen.

Health Department Fails to Inform Citizens
Yesterday they had a public meeting, not a public hearing. The Department chose not to even advertise it to the general public. CCHC has found no press release. This is the ONLY public meeting they plan to have for the public to learn about their plans and provide input. Four members of the public, including CCHC, were in the room yesterday along with about 70 industry and government folks. The four individuals in the room asked many pointed questions about cost and privacy and research that clearly frustrated health department officials…and exposed their lack of knowledge on the cost of this intrusive operation. (see below)

Please Act Immediately!
The health department has set a February 6 deadline for hearing from you! CCHC has provided a list of the data that will be sent to the government. Please do the following:

image

  • TELL the MN Department of Health what you think of their plan to seize your medical records data and control your doctor’s decisions! Consider sending a carbon copy to the Star Tribune’s lead health science reporter (dhage@startribune.com) and to CCHC(info@cchconline.org)  Tell others to write a letter too. It can be 5 words long or 500.
  • TO SEND YOUR COMMENTS:

    Email:
    will.wilson@state.mn.us

    Mail:
    Minnesota Department of Health
    Division of Health Policy
    65 East Seventh Place, Suite 220

    Include your name, address, and phone number!

    TOPIC:  MDH Collection and Use of Patient “Encounter Data” (M.S. 62U.04)



    ALSO:


    Real Purpose of Data Collection
    Your medical records are being seized to monitor and control your doctors (see quotes); essentially, to build “scientific”data-based rationale for centralized decision-making…and health care rationing.

    Treatment Control Threatened – QUOTES 1/29/09 meeting
    The stated goals according to comments by today’s presenters included the following:

    • “[We’re] looking at care patterns of a provider”
    • “We want to know about the entire population the provider is serving”
    • “We want to get as complete a picture as possible of a provider’s population”
    • “[Use for] development and reporting of provider peer groups” based on “cost, quality, value, and efficiency”
    • “create a single standard [of “compliance reporting”] that the community agrees on.”
    • “to look at the quality of care provided…resources used to achieve quality…and price of resources used”
    • “Payers are required under statute to use that information” to steer patients toward higher quality, lower cost, more efficient providers [ie. providers that comply with MDH’s idea of “evidence-based medicine.”]
    • “We can look and see if that individual gets the appropriate treatment” [according to the ‘series of protocols’ they have for certain diseases]
    • “We need to count. We need to classify.”
    • “Gather all medical and pharmaceutical data and track members [patients] across plans”
    • Need pharmacy data to monitor “Treatment patterns…Resource consumption…Payment information”

    Command and Control
    Your medical records and insurance data will be used to create what they call, “provider peer groups.” CCHC prefers to call them “compliance report cards” on every doctor, clinic, and hospital. In 2002, MDH tried to get access to everyone’s private medical records through a proposed rule, but the public was outraged, hearings were held, it made front page news, and the proposed rule was withdrawn in 2003. In 2004, MDH tried to get the data through “best practices” legislation, but CCHC petitions forced the legislature to sunset the language in 2006. In 2008, in the final days of session the health care reform law gave them authority to get the data. By law, all insurers are now required to send your private data to MDH, which is using the Maine Health Information Center (MHIC) as their data warehouse contractor.

    Patient Privacy Gone
    Every time you see the doctor, the data will be sent to the Maine data warehouse. Every medication you take will be reported to Maine. Every diagnosis, every treatment will be cataloged. Every medical charge, every bill you pay will be reported. Your insurance company will have to regularly send a list of all their enrollees to Maine. The data will be released to MHIC under the loosest federal definition of “de-identified.” The name of every doctor and the encrypted name of every patient will be sent with every data submission. This “de-identification” process will not likely prevent re-identification of you if MDH wishes to do so.

    Clueless on Cost
    When asked about cost during the Q&A session, MDH officials did not know the following:

    • The cost of the 27 month contract with MHIC [they said they’d send it to CCHC]
    • The cost of the health department’s administration of the program [they said they’d send it]
    • Whether the data collection will save the state any money in health care spending
    • How much reporting will cost the entities required to report. They said they didn’t even try.

CHOOSE YOUR CURE
 
For the last month I have become sick and tired of TV news that hourly comes up with a new super criminal, either elected, or a private thief.  Jessie James, Al Capone, Bonny and Clyde, are all small change compared to the contemporary shysters the likes of Bernie Madoff and the Wall Street gangsters who don’t just rob the train, but haul all the nation’s money away in a fleet of armored trucks.  Not just looting the other bad guys, but stealing their own mother’s savings! 
 
So, I watch old Westerns where the good guy always wins.
 
Livestock publications like Beef, Drovers, and National Cattleman know people like clean and nice stuff so they print the weekly NAIS promotion releases. The NAIS program claims it can stop all disease and save the world.  USDA offers a positive pablum message, but  void of all cost considerations. 
 
USDA has billions to work with.  They hold court on Independence Avenue in what was the largest office compound in the world.  There is something about the authority of making enforcements from the power of a narcissistic filled over two million square foot stone carved building that makes them —- feel — faultless.  Then out in the corral dealing with cattle, horses and managing a farm—-what could these humble people possibly know about livestock and disease?
 
The experience of stepping in real bull dust every day will provide valid lessons totally clashing with the marble halls of USDA.  There is an opinion of the regulators, and an opinion of the regulated—totally different.

Sponsor now wants horse bill killed

1 Comment

A state tax increase bill written by Rep. Carla Skinder and proposed for state law became the “straw that broke the horse’s back” for horse breeders nation wide.  Just short of riots resulted until the author decided to officially kill her own idea.  Horse owners in New Hampshire disliked the $25 annual fee plus the numbering system required, similar to the NAIS proposed by USDA.  After massive negative reactions, continuous phone calls, fax and emails the bill is now dead.  Thanks to all livestock producers who vigorusly opposed this to create a happy ending.  DD

Concord Monitor:

Sponsor now wants horse bill killed

 

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The sponsor of a bill that has angered horse owners around New Hampshire is giving up on her proposal. Horse owners nation wide feared this was the start of an “equine tax” that would effect all horses; if the bill passed it would encourage other states to exact such a tax.  The American Horse Council says there are an estimated 9.2 million horses in the USA.

Cornish Rep. Carla Skinder told The Associated Press she will ask that her bill be killed. She also sent an e-mail early Tuesday to horse groups with the same message.

Scores of horse owners were expected to attend a hearing on the bill Tuesday afternoon. Skinder’s e-mail said she did not want anyone to make the trip to Concord for a bill that she will not pursue.

The proposal would require owners to pay an annual $25 registration fee every year per horse.

Horse owners say it would just hike their costs.

These words are written for those illegal immigrants who Sen. Harry Reid is determined to give amesty.  These are the people we are supposed to feel sorry for and who  claim they only want a better life.  These are the people determined to take what is left of our country from us.

The disrespect, the absolute contempt is unforgivable.

These three pargraphs are the closing of this article by  Ernesto Cienfuegos, La Voz de Aztlan

http://www.aztlan.net/index.html on the pro-Atzalan website. 

“To our beloved community in Aztlan, prepare yourselves. The US Empire is going down but their is no reason we should go down with them. The US system may be already too decayed to save. There is very little difference between the two ruling parties. They are allowed to take turns governing to give the impression that there is real “democracy” in the empire. The party conventions you saw in Denver and the “twin cities” were mere “dog and pony shows”. The Plan de Aztlan hit it right on the mark when it stated that the Democratic and Republican parties are “the same animal with two heads that feed from the same trough.”

The “trough” in the above statement refers to the international banking families that have no allegiance to any nation and who control the Federal Reserve Board and thorough it the monetary system of the USA. They manipulate the economy by setting interest rates and by controlling how much money should be printed. This controls the worth of the printed money which has been losing value because of inflation. If the Federal Reserve Board prints 700 billion dollars as proposed by the bailout, in a few months you will be paying possibly 12 dollars for a loaf of bread. They buy congressman and senators in order to pass laws beneficial to their interests. That is how the Savings and Loan scam was accomplished and how they intend to perpetuate the current scam that is in the making.

Let the naive so call “patriots” suffer for their ignorance. Most of them believe in UFOs and in Big Foot and some still believe there is gold at Fort Knox, Kentucky. Next time you hear “twilight’s last gleaming”, know that it is for them and not for us! (end snip)

The CTLR Position Statement on NAIS.

The CTLR Position Statement on NAIS.

The Cattlemen’s Texas Longhorn Registry does not support any form of a mandatory National Animal Identification System (NAIS), including mandatory premises registration, animal identification, and/or government-mandated animal tracking. We are deeply concerned how such legislation would affect the wellbeing of our irreplaceable genetic base of this heritage breed.-

NAIS invades our privacy and violates the 1st, 4th, 5th, and 14th Amendments to the Constitution of the United States. NAIS, and any program like it, would adversely affect availability of locally produced, healthy food. The safety and security of our food supply is best protected when producers are responsible for sustaining a healthy herd and ecosystem. Government databases, in contrast, do not improve the health of the animals and are technologically vulnerable.

We advocate cattle be kept in their natural environment where instincts influence their behavior. We discourage confined feeding and unnecessary handling that are responsible for most bovine injuries and illnesses. Producers should remain free to move animals, while complying with current animal health requirements, without the added burden of reporting such movement to the custodian of a surveillance archive. Any government requirements limiting the free movement, sale, or use of animals should be clearly supported by scientific evidence showing that the animal health benefits to be obtained outweigh the costs in time, money, and the loss of freedom.

We support marketing of locally produced foods grown on sustainable farms. If an animal identification system benefits the export market, then it should be market driven with voluntary participation of those who will benefit from export. Independent producers and taxpayers should not be forced to subsidize the system. NAIS will not improve animal health or prevent the spread of disease, but it would cost producers, consumers and taxpayers higher fees to maintain databases that benefit only a few corporations. Tracking should be left to private enterprise utilizing Process Verified Programs that assure product quality and compassionate and humane standards of production.

We believe the NAIS is a leap away from democracy and our Bill of Rights. It is the first of many steps to follow that strip away citizens’ freedoms in favor of corporate dominance that will ultimately trap this country into dependence on foreign commodities. We support the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance in their position of opposition to a NAIS. We encourage our members to contact their legislators and request legislation that bars a mandatory program, stops government funding, and protects individuals from coercion or pressure to participate in any voluntary program.

Economic Stimulus Bill Mandates Electronic Health Records for Every Citizen without Opt-out or Patient Consent Provisions

Economic Stimulus Bill Mandates Electronic Health Records
for Every Citizen without Opt-out or Patient Consent Provisions 

 


January 23, 2009

(Washington, DC)—The Institute for Health Freedom (IHF) warns that the economic stimulus bill mandates electronic health records for every citizen without providing for opt-out or patient consent provisions.  “Without those protections, Americans’ electronic health records could be shared—without their consent—with over 600,000 covered entities through the forthcoming nationally linked electronic health-records network,” says Sue A. Blevins, IHF president.

“President Obama has pledged to advance freedom.  Therefore the freedom to choose not to participate in a national electronic health-records system must be upheld,” Blevins says. “Unless people have the right to decide if and when their health information is shared or whether to participate in research studies, they don’t have a true right to privacy.”

IHF calls on Americans who care about health privacy to contact their members of Congress and President Obama to voice their own opinions about the need for opt-out and patient consent provisions, to ensure true patient privacy rights.

Some provisions of the economic stimulus bill include:

* “The utilization of an electronic health record for each person in the United States by 2014.”

* “The National Coordinator shall perform the duties…consistent with the development of a nationwide health information technology infrastructure that allows for the electronic use and exchange of information and that…facilitates health and clinical research…”

The federal medical privacy rule promulgated under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) already permits the disclosure of personal health information without patient consent for treatment, payment, and oversight of the healthcare system.  IHF has long called for modification of the HIPAA rule to restore patient consent in order to preserve the confidential doctor-patient relationship. The stimulus bill fails to restore patient consent, while at the same time, mandating electronic health records and facilitating the electronic exchange of every American’s health information.

The Institute for Health Freedom is a national nonprofit, educational organization whose mission is to bring the issues of personal health freedom to the forefront of the American health-policy debate. IHF monitors and reports on national policies that affect citizens’ freedom to choose their health-care treatments and providers, and to maintain their health privacy—including genetic privacy.

CCHC releases “Newborn Rights” notification to assist parents of new babies during hospitalization

CCHC MEDIA RELEASE
Thursday, January 29, 2009
For Immediate Release

CCHC releases “Newborn Rights” notification to
assist parents of new babies during hospitalization

 

Document will help parents protect their baby’s privacy rights related to newborn
genetic testing, and state government storage of and research on newborn DNA


Minneapolis/Saint Paul – To give parents a tangible tool to protect the privacy and civil rights of their newborn babies, Citizens’ Council on Health Care has released a “Newborn Rights” notification document for use during hospitalization.

Citizens’ Council on Health Care (CCHC) also released the following statement from CCHC’s president, Twila Brase:

“Many parents have told us stories of the difficulties they’ve had trying to protect their newborn babies while at the hospital. Often the hospital staff knows nothing about the options parents have under the Minnesota newborn genetic testing law. Most don’t even know about the Minnesota genetic privacy law and its written consent requirements. Some mothers and fathers have awakened to the sound of their baby crying, only to learn that the baby’s blood had already been taken without their consent.

“To help parents protect their children, Citizens’ Council on Health Care is today releasing a notification form for parents to use in the hospital after the delivery of their baby. This simple form can be copied and posted on the door, taped to the bassinet, or placed wherever the parents think best. It can be handed to staff and used by the parents to notify the lab technicians, nurses, and doctors that they want to be contacted before anyone takes blood from their baby’s heel.

“For six years, CCHC has been calling on the Minnesota Department of Health to fully inform parents of their right to protect their newborn’s genetic privacy and DNA property rights. The Department has steadfastly refused. They have also failed to follow the required informed written consent requirements of Minnesota’s genetic privacy law. Last year, they sought to exempt themselves from the law, and when they were unsuccessful, they continued to violate it. To this day, there is no consent form, and the warehousing of baby DNA continues unabated.

“Today, more than 815,000 children have their DNA warehoused in the Minnesota Department of Health and more than 1.5 million children have their genetic testing results in a health department database. Over 52,000 children have been the subjects of genetic research without their parent’s knowledge or consent.

“Until the state health department begins to respect the civil and statutory rights of babies and families, we will do all we can to help parents protect their children’s genetic privacy and DNA property rights before they are stolen by the Minnesota Department of Health.”

FEMA CAMPS get the green light from a compliant congress

HR 645  National Emergency Centers Act

 

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h111-645

 

SEC. 2. ESTABLISHMENT OF NATIONAL EMERGENCY CENTERS.

 

4) to meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security.

 

 

 

Here’s the clinker!  All those base closings when we were in the middle of two illegal wars and the 2006 KBR contract awarded to construct or renovate detention centers is all coming about via this bill.  We were closing bases strategically located around the country while being threatened with more attacks from “terrorists”.  Now, didn’t any of you find this even remotely strange?

 

To meet other appropriate needs determined by the Homeland Security Secretary…..and what might those be??  Could they be the “other fast moving programs” KBR cited but didn’t define in 2006 after being awarded that $385 million contract for starters?

 

Under NORTHCOM our own military is being stationed on our streets here at home in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act prohibiting the use of any standing army to be used against the citizens of the United States.  The Army has admitted they are being stationed in part, for “crowd control”.  “Crowd” would be us, I think. 

 

Civilian Inmate Labor Program

http://www.army.mil/usapa/epubs/pdf/r210_35.pdf

 

Now wouldn’t this just be handy!  Not only will they incarcerate us, we will be forced to provide free forced labor.  From the introduction:

 

[Provides Army policy and guidance for establishing civilian inmate labor

programs and civilian prison camps on Army installations.] (emphasis mine)

 

Although this current bill makes this situation sound as if congress is truly concerned with our welfare and is truly wanting to protect and save us from a national emergency, we know it just ain’t so.  We have only to look at those wide open borders, those insecure ports of entry, and the influx of illegal aliens from all parts of the world who enter without so much as a warning shot being fired. 

 

[To meet other appropriate needs] is the same as “and for other purposes” that ends the title of each and every bill proposed.  The intent is the same regardless of which phrase is used……[we have other plans in mind that have nothing to do with the issues stated an which will, most likely, be unconstitutional, dictatorial or such an egregious abuse of power you will most likely vomit when we reveal them].

 

Maybe it is all in how we are defining a national emergency.  When we think of an national emergency it is generally along the lines of forest fires, earthquakes, flooding, storms, or maybe even a physical attack from forces unknown. 

 

When government thinks of a national emergency……..it’s more from the angle of pure fear of the general population.  This is understandable.  After the last 8 years in particular (but not limited to, by any means) of stripping us of our rights, starting wars of aggression, repeated attempts to pass amnesty while the country founders economically, congress voting itself a raise on at least 7 occasions while thousands of Americans lose their jobs daily, millions of home foreclosures while Wall Street gets bailed out with our money, and one string of lies after another about virtually everything the government has been engaged in from the war on terror, to the war on the middle class……I understand.

 

I understand that as Americans, because of our apathy, our lack of attention and our willing submission to fear tactics we have become a spineless herd of sheeple.   Here’s the problem with herd mentality……it only takes one to start a stampede.

 

HR 645 would be more appropriately titled: 

 

National holding Pens: How to control a stampeding herd.

 

This will be another piece of legislation that will be passed over the objections of the same people it claims to represent.  It makes one yearn for the long lost days of public hangings.

H.R. 645 Authorizes FEMA Camps in U.S.

22 Comments

Anyone out there still doubt the existence of FEMA detention camps for American citizens? The fascist regime known as the United States government has made your impending incarceration official with H.R. 645, which authorizes what they’ve already had Kellogg Brown & Root build at least since 2006; i.e. detention camps designed to imprison millions of us.

US ARMY TRAINING VIDEO: Depleted Uranium Hazard Awareness

US ARMY TRAINING VIDEO: Depleted Uranium Hazard Awareness

 

http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=34f_1172212739

 

From the web site (http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article3581.htm)

: Between October and December 1995, the U.S. Army’s Depleted Uranium (DU) Project completed a series of training videos and manuals about depleted uranium munitions. This training regimen was developed as the result of recommendations made in the January 1993 General Accounting Office (GAO) report, “Army Not Adequately More..Prepared to Deal with Depleted Uranium Contamination.”

The training materials were intended to instruct servicemen and women about the use and hazards of depleted uranium munitions. In addition, the training regimen included instructions for soldiers who repair and recover vehicles contaminated by depleted uranium.

Throughout 1996, these videos sat on a shelf, while U.S. soldiers continued to use and work with depleted uranium munitions. In June 1997, Bernard Rostker, The Department of Defense (DoD) principle spokesperson for their investigation of Gulf War hazardous exposures, stated that the depleted uranium safety training program would begin to be shared by a limited number of servicemen and women in July 1997.

STILL TODAY the vast majority of servicemen and women in the U.S. military, and likely in the armed forces of other countries which are developing or have obtained depleted uranium munitions, are unaware of the use and dangers of depleted uranium munitions, or of the protective clothing and procedures which can minimize or prevent serious short-term exposures.

http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=34f_1172212739

 

This video by the Army speaks directly to the damage to internal organs, ground contamination, and water contamination. 

Depleted Uranium causes heavy metal poisoning.

Radioactivity spontaneous emmissions of Alpha and Beta particles or Gamma Rays.

Alpha particles are most damaging as the effects are not immediate and these particles cause the most damamge to internal organs.

 

Depleted Uranium…..Anatomy of an Atrocity

Leave a comment

Recent commenting on articles and videos concerning depleted uranium claim that DU is a common element and is present all over the earth.  The person commenting claimed that U-238 is not harmful. 

If this was true……why would the military be using it to create lethal weapons?  This amounts to claiming they are building bombs that don’t explode. 

This article explains in plain language what DU is, how it is made and what it does.

I would suggest our “troll” allow himself to be fully exposed to the effects of a DU dirty bomb and come back next year and tell us how it caused him no harm…..if he’s even still breathing.

Excerpted from the full article:

WHAT IS DEPLETED URANIUM?

Depleted Uranium, or DU, is a waste material left over from the nuclear industry. A vast amount of this waste DU is produced when natural uranium is enriched for use in nuclear reactors and nuclear weapons. Only the uranium isotope U-235 can be used in nuclear processes, such as reactors and weapons. As most of this isotope is removed from naturally occurring uranium, the remaining uranium product comprises U-238 and smaller amounts of the more highly radioactive U-235 and U-234. DU is both chemically toxic and radioactive. It is this latter product, the left over uranium, comprising mainly U-238, which has been used to make ‘depleted’ uranium weapons. It is used for weapons because this heavy, dense metal is judged by the army to be an excellent penetrator of enemy armour, tanks, and even buildings.

A large amount of DU in the stockpiles held in the United States has been contaminated with recycled spent nuclear fuel from nuclear reactors. For example trace amounts of U-236 and highly radioactive substances such as plutonium, neptunium and technetium were found in a DU anti-tank shell used in Kosovo. Hundreds of thousands of tons of this contaminated stock was exported to the UK, France and other countries in the 1990s. The extent to which this DU has been contaminated with recycled spent fuel is still unknown and undisclosed.

Governments have largely ignored the serious dangers this recycled fuel represents. A common defence used by the British and US governments and their militaries is to claim that depleted uranium is less radioactive than natural uranium and therefore does not constitute a risk to human health. This statement is, however, misleading. In its natural form uranium is present in our environment in very small quantities as an ore, for example in rocks and soil. Conversely, the DU used by the military has been concentrated relative to background amounts, and is therefore many times more radioactive than uranium ore.

In May 2003 Scott Peterson, a writer with the US newspaper CSM, examined radioactivity levels next to DU bullets in Baghdad and found Geiger-counter readings were 1900 times greater than background radiation levels next to DU bullets. When natural uranium is concentrated in a similar form to ‘depleted’ uranium it emits about 40% more alpha radiation, 15% more gamma radiation and around the same level of beta radiation. The chemical toxicity of uranium does not depend on the isotope, therefore enriched, ‘normal’, and depleted uranium are equally toxic chemically.

It is extremely difficult and expensive for the nuclear industry to store DU. It is thought that the US currently has 1 billion tonnes of depleted uranium radioactive waste, while the UK has at least 50,000 tonnes. This waste is stored in cylinders at many sites across the US and UK and is vulnerable to corrosion and leaks owing to ageing cylinders and outside storage. It is stored mainly in the form of depleted uranium hexafluoride (DUF6) which can leak if the corroding cylinders are breached. At least 10 cylinders are known to have breached during the past 10 years.

Turning this DU waste into weapons solves some of the problem faced by the Government and nuclear industry, concerning what to do with these large stockpiles. Not only is DU practically free of charge for the arms manufacturers, but it no longer has to be stored and monitored indefinitely. (end excerpt)

The recent posting of two videos by Gary Rea concerning the use and effects of depleted uranium not only in the mideast, but also here at home in the US, elicited a viral response from a Lt.Col. [XXXX XXXXXX.  The Colonal did not mention his own lack of credibility or his own lack of any educational background in this area.  Research is producing nothing less than a concerted effort by [XXXXXX], utilizing other fired or retired military personal to attack blogs and sites reporting the deadly effects of depleted uranium.  [XXXXXX] is directly connected to a Pentagon program meant to disrupt any meaningful dialogue or information regarding the gassing not only of Iraqi’s and Afghani’s, but also US citizens here at home.

Maybe the Lt. Col. should view this video, then view his own morals and conscience.

This clip from a statement by Ms. Moret sums it up nicely…..

http://www.freestate.tv/2007/10/29/wall-street-czars-depopulating-the-world/

“Lt. Col. [XXXX XXXXXX] is operating under the direction of Dr. Michael Kilpatrick directly out of the Depleted Uranium office of the Pentagon. Dr. Kilpatrick uses retired officers to harrass civilians who are working around the world to stop depleted uranium weapons from being used. The fact that depleted uranium weaponry violates all international laws, war conventions, and agreements, meets the definition of WMD under US Federal Code, and violates US military law does not seem to matter to anyone in the Dept. of Defence, US government, Congress, or international judicial bodies which should stop it.

The University of California will forever be known as “the University that poisoned the world” because thats the where the nightmare of nuclear weapons started under the Manhattan Project. The University of California is nothing more than a weapons of mass destruction contractor to the secret society of Skull and Bones at Yale University, and to the international bankers who run the City of London. Its also known as the Brotherhood of Death.”

Testimony of Leuren Moret for the International Criminal Tribunal for Afghanistan Dec. 13-14, 2003, Tokyo, JAPAN © Leuren Moret http://afghan-tribunal.3005.net/english/

 1. Please tell us your short biography and your present position. I am asking you because you are a witness.

Leuren Moret is an independent scientist and international expert on radiation and public health issues. She is on the organizing committee of the World Committee on Radiation Risk (WCRR), an organization of independent radiation specialists including

members of the radiation committee in the EU Parliament – European Committee on Radiation Risk (ECRR).

She is an Environmental Commissioner for the City of Berkeley.

Ms. Moret earned her B.S. in Geology at U.C. Davis in 1968, and her M.A. in Near Eastern Studies from U.C. Berkeley in 1978. She has completed all but her dissertation for a PhD. in the Geosciences at U.C. Davis.

She has traveled and conducted scientific research in 42 countries.

She wrote a scientific report on depleted uranium for the United Nations subcommission investigating the illegality of depleted uranium munitions.

She has been trained on radiation issues by Marion Fulk, a former Manhattan Project Scientist and retired insider at the Livermore Lab who is an expert on radioactive fallout and rainout.

Her investigation of depleted uranium particle size formed under high temperature conditions on the battlefield is a critical depleted uranium issue.

The production of particles in very high concentrations and numbers results in the permanent suspension of depleted uranium particulate matter in the atmosphere. This has been ignored, but is a major contributor to adverse health effects caused by DU exposure. [see Letter to Congressman McDermott – http://www.mindfully.org/Nucs/2003/Leuren-Moret-Gen-Groves21feb03.htm].

Members of the Japanese Parliament opposed to the US war against Iraq have appointed her as their Official Representative in the San Francisco Bay Area where she works closely with Congresswoman Barbara Lee.

Her Berkeley Resolution which was passed September 10, 2002, by the first city in the world, calls for a permanent ban on the weaponization of space.

She proposed the resolution after learning that lower orbital space is contaminated with uranium and its decay products from atmospheric testing, and burned up nuclear batteries and reactors in spacecraft.

During the summer of 2003, she traveled and lectured widely in Japan on the health effects of radiation from atmospheric testing fallout, nuclear power plants and depleted uranium weaponry used in Afghanistan and Iraq.

She spoke at international press conferences in Japan on the long-term effects of depleted uranium with Dr. Al-Ali and Dr. G. Hassan, two medical doctors from Basra, Iraq.

She and other international specialists, including Dr. Al-Ali and Dr. Hassan, presented their research findings at a World Depleted Uranium Weapons Conference in Hamburg, Germany, October 16-19, 2003 [http://www.uraniumweaponsconference.de].

Ms. Moret testified on June 26, 2003, in Chiba, Japan, as an expert on depleted uranium at a Public Hearing for the International Criminal Tribunal for Afghanistan (ICTA).

She testified at a Public Hearing for the ICTA on September 11, 2003, in Manilla, Philippines. She is a member of the organizing committee for the International Criminal Tribunal for Iraq (ICTI). The ICTI will be conducted in a series of Public Hearings hosted in countries around the world with the final Tribunal to be held in Istanbul on March 20, 2005.

Doug Rokke & the Fight Against DU

Leave a comment

Maj. (ret.) Doug Rokke, Phd is the former Director of the U.S. Army Depleted Uranium Project. He is one of the world’s foremost authorities on the subject of depleted uranium munitions, such as those being used in Iraq and Afghanistan today.

Since his work with the Army, Rokke has gone on to become one of the most vocal opponents of DU munitions and has even said that he believes a DU missile – not an airliner – hit the Pentagon on 9/11.

Dr. Rokke has spoken widely on the topic of depleted uranium. Here are but some of the videos of those talks.

Downsize D.C. against NAIS

Leave a comment

D o w n s i z e r – D i s p a t c h


Media Alert! Jim Babka will appear on the Liberty Roundtable tomorrow morning. See the Postscript for details.

Quote of the Day: “The USDA claims it needs to be able to move fast in case of an outbreak of disease. At first blush it sure sounds fine and good, until you consider that people are in the middle of a major epidemic on US dairy farms, and the USDA hasn’t moved at all to stop it.” – The National Association of Farm Animal Welfare

Subject: From “Voluntary” to Mandatory

Johne’s disease is a contagious infection of the small intestine of hoofed animals.

Moreover, the USDA’s 2009 budget . . .

  • Slashes the already miniscule funding for Johne’s disease eradication 
  •  While increasing funding for the National Animal Identification System (NAIS)

The rationale for NAIS is that it will better protect America’s food supply. But at what cost?

  • More government surveillance powers
  • More expense for ranchers, farmers, and exotic pet owners
  • Less freedom and privacy: If one calf briefly strays, a report must be filed. If a horse-owner goes for a trail ride, a report must be filed.
  • NAIS is supposed to control disease outbreaks, but it does so at the expense of disease eradication programs.

No wonder the people aren’t buying it. NAIS was introduced four years ago as a “voluntary” program, but the lack of “volunteers” has the USDA playing hardball. It’s proposing rule APHIS-2007-0096 that would . . .

  • Require participants in other USDA disease control programs to adopt a NAIS Premise ID number
  • Phase in a requirement that newborn livestock be issued eartags under a uniform NAIS numbering system

Our assumption that this “voluntary” program would be made mandatory was a big reason DownsizeDC.org launched its anti-NAIS campaign three years ago.

Please join us in fighting this bureaucratic over-reach.

  • Tell Congress to abolish NAIS
  • Remind them that Congress never approved NAIS in the first place, but Congress does have the power to de-fund the program
  • You can also note that NAIS funding is being increased while Johne’s Disease eradication programs are being cut. This undermines the rationale for NAIS
  • Make your representatives aware that NAIS is one step closer to being mandatory.

You can send your message using our Educate the Powerful System.

Please also take an extra step. Strike at the root of the mischief-making powers of unelected bureaucrats. Tell Congress to pass DownsizeDC.org’s Write the Laws Act.

Thank-you for helping us Downsize DC!

Leuren Moret, Depopulation and the Nihilist Agenda of the Elite

1 Comment

I recently viewed two video interviews with Leuren Moret, the former scientist-turned-whistler-blower who has changed her life’s work from laboratory science to exposing the elite’s agenda of using depleted uranium and other deadly means to attack humanity.

In these two videos, which are both loaded with the shocking facts about DU, eugenics, the global depopulation agenda, etc., you will find a reference (toward the end of the video on the Uranium wars) to the fact that the Bushes (George Sr. and Barbara) have had their thyroid glands removed and that their children (inluding our former idiot president) were all born with learning disorders, the result of the family’s own exposure to the very same toxins they and their elite cronies have been exposing us all to. This clearly indicates that, not only do the elite want to destroy humanity, but their expendable minions and even themselves, in the process. Theirs is an evil and nihilistic agenda that cannot be fathomed by the rational mind.

My Opinion of Barack Obama

by Alan Adaschik

Excerpted from the full article at www.constitutionforum.us

“Barack Obama is intelligent, articulate, handsome, and dedicated to his beautiful family.  He also wants to be a President for all Americans and not just those with six figure incomes.  On the other side of the coin, the President Elect is a Democrat and his party shares responsibility with the Republicans for the mess this country is in.  Therefore, being a loyal Democrat, Barack Obama is handicapped in regard to the options available to him to help this Nation.  Also, as an accepted member of this Nation’s ruling establishment, he is committed to keeping Americans in the dark about how we are really governed.  Therefore, his most grievous character flaw is his willingness to participate in deception.  Proof of this is use of the word democracy to describe America, his wrongfully calling Bill Clinton a great president, and the fact that he has taken his oath of office with his fingers crossed behind his back.  In conclusion, appearances are that Barrack Obama is the answer to this Nation’s prayers, but the truth is that instead of being our salvation, we are in for politics as usual and politics as usual means the American experiment in Republican Democracy is over.”  (end excerpt)

NAIS…..The USDA assault on farms, ranches and livestock continues

Leave a comment

I encourage EVERYONE to comment on this proposed rule, even if you do not own the livestock currently proposed to be affected (this opens the door to the rest) AND even if you will never own any livestock.  If you like to eat local foods, this WILL affect you.

Comments on Docket No. APHIS–2007–0096 Official Animal Identification Numbering Systems

January 24, 2009

This proposal is nothing more than a back door approach to implement a mandatory NAIS.  What happened to the USDA’s often stated claim “NAIS is voluntary with a capital ‘V’”!

You cite:

“Executive Order 12866 and Regulatory Flexibility Act

This proposed rule has been reviewed under Executive Order 12866. The rule has been determined to be not significant for the purposes of Executive Order 12866 and, therefore, has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget.”

How can this be?  The first paragraph of Executive Order 12866 and Regulatory Flexibility Act states:

“The American people deserve a regulatory system that works for them, not against them: a regulatory system that protects and improves their health, safety, environment, and well-being and improves the performance of the economy without imposing unacceptable or unreasonable costs on society; regulatory policies that recognize that the private sector and private markets are the best engine for economic growth; regulatory approaches that respect the role of State, local, and tribal governments; and regulations that are effective, consistent, sensible, and understandable. We do not have such a regulatory system today.”

And

Section 1.  Statement of Regulatory Philosophy and Principles. (a) The Regulatory Philosophy. Federal agencies should promulgate only such regulations as are required by law, are necessary to interpret the law, or are made necessary by compelling public need, such as material failures of private markets to protect or improve the health and safety of the public, the environment, or the well-being of the American p eople. In deciding whether and how to regulate, agencies should assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives, including the alternative of not regulating. Costs and benefits shall be understood to include both quantifiable measures (to the fullest extent that these can be usefully estimated) and qualitative measures of costs and benefits that are difficult to quantify, but nevertheless essential to consider. Further, in choosing among alternative regulatory approaches, agencies should select those approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety, and other advantages; distributive impacts; and equity), unless a statute requires another regulatory approach.”

I submit that you are violating this act by not first having this proposal reviewed by the OMB and by not making public the cost/benefit analysis completed by Kansas State University.

NAIS will directly affect my ability to raise and sell breeding stock to other people and 4-H children when they discover that they must register their ‘premises’ (property) in a federal database for a program whose true costs and requirements are yet unknown!  I view NAIS as a direct threat to the continued survival of rare and endangered species of livestock.

NAIS will do nothing to stop disease from entering this country.  It is an ‘after the fact’ reaction.  It will also do nothing to stop disease from entering our food chain because it ends at the slaughterhouse door.  The large recalls that have occurred in the past few years were all from contamination that occurred in either the slaughterhouse, the packing industry or at the retail level, NOT on the farm itself!

On page 1635, column 1, paragraph 3, the proposed rule states:

“It is not our intent at this time to set a date by which AIN eartags in adult animals must conform to the 840 standard.”

The wording of this sentence indicates that you DO intend to do just that in the future.  Requiring livestock owners to retag animals at some point in the future will be a terrible economic burden.

On page 1635, column 2, paragraph 1, the proposed rule states:

the fundamental purpose of a PIN is to identify locations in the United States where livestock and/or poultry are housed or kept.

And

When animal health officials know where at risk animals and locations are and have accurate, up-to-date contact information for their owners, they can respond quickly and strategically to prevent disease spread.”

There is no way this database can ever be 100% accurate!  I have a very real fear that your agency will look at as just that, especially after listening to numerous USDA officials speak.

Your often cited reason for NAIS is ‘mad cow’ disease and the need to trace where said cow went.  Not ONE of the cows who tested positive for BSE originated in this country!  Each one of them was imported from Canada yet you consistently water down the import requirements!

On page 1635, column 2, paragraph 3, the proposed rule states:

Because the use of a single numbering system to represent premises in all animal-health data systems would help to standardize information and to enhance existing disease-tracing and emergency-response capabilities, we are proposing to remove the PIN format that uses the State postal abbreviation and are proposing to create a single national format for the PIN by requiring that all PINs issued on or after the date on which this proposed rule becomes effective would have to use the seven character alphanumeric code format.

If the FIN (flock identification number) “serves the sheep and goat population well”, and will be continued under this proposal, why the need to change from the current state postal code numbering system for other species of livestock?

In addition, storing all PIN’s in a single database at the USDA will be far less secure than the current system of storing locations at the state/territory/tribe level.  It is well known that any computer system can be ‘hacked into”.  The USDA’s own system has been a victim of this in the past with social security numbers for private individuals stolen.  If an individual or group wants to contaminate our food supply, how much easier could it be if the location of every producer is stored in one massive database?! 

On page 1637, column 2, paragraph 3, the proposed rule states:

We do not currently have all the data necessary for a comprehensive analysis of the effects of this proposed rule on small entities. Therefore, we are inviting comments concerning potential effects.  In particular, we are interested in determining the potential costs to eartag manufacturers and livestock producers.

According to a recent FOIA request for copies of the completed ‘NAIS Cost-Benefit Analysis’, the USDA has a 438 page report from Kansas State University.  This FOIA request was denied.  What happened to ‘transparency in government’?

According to your grant proposal, you paid Kansas State $50,000 of taxpayer money for this study.  Why has this report not been made public? 

Why are you, once again, submitting a proposed rule for a program which you cannot or will not state the actual costs to the producers themselves?

On page 1637, column 3, paragraph 3, the proposed rule states:

These potential costs may be passed on to livestock producers that purchase the new eartags. We do not have data to quantitatively estimate these potential costs at this time, and welcome public comment from affected entities with this information.”

In this economy, where small farmers are already struggling to make ends meet, why do you propose that these costs be passed on to the producer?  Especially by technology companies who stand to gain windfall profits from the implementation of this system?  This latter fact has been clearly reported in numerous technology journals and memos/reports to stockholders from the approved tag/RFID manufacturers.

It would be far more cost effective and safer for humans if the $130 million of taxpayer money that has been spent so far trying to implement this expensive, intrusive system had been spent on a software system that would be compatible with the current systems in use AND by increasing the number of inspectors at our portals of entry and at the slaughterhouse/processing level.  Then, and only then, would our food be safer.

When NAIS drives all the small farmers out, where will people go to buy their locally grown and wholesome food?

When NAIS drives all the small farmers out, we will become increasingly dependent on importing food, just as we have become increasingly dependent on importing oil.

When NAIS causes parents to pull their children out of 4-H and Future Farmers of America, what will the cost be to society?  Raising animals teaches children responsibility, improves their self-esteem, teaches them the value of ‘community’ and makes them less likely to engage in criminal activity.

When NAIS drives all of us who raise rare and endangered breeds out, where will the larger producers go when they need to improve the genetic strength of their commercial breeds?

Mandatory Equine Licenses Enacted

2 Comments

by Darol Dickinson~~ 1-26-09

The New Hampshire Municipal Association proudly touts a new special “equine” tax that will increase jobs and create new state income from the estimated 24,000 equine in New Hampshire. A licensing of each and every equine is proposed to be effective July 1, 2009. This is a tax of $25 per horse (equine) and in cases of refusal to comply, the state adds another $50 to slap the cowboys in line. It isn’t a smoke screen about export, food safety or disease, it is just a new state income.

Beyond the state lines of New Hampshire, the USDA has been at war with livestock owners to coerce enrollment in the National Animal Identification System (NAIS), a multi-billion dollar scheme to computerize, number and create a permanent surveillance system on all US livestock. This plot is the mother of all numbering scenarios. With the commerce of all US livestock, at the end of three years the total computer movements recorded, and paid for by animal owners, would eclipse the number of the earth’s human population.

These draconian sounding tax collection schemes, although totally putrid to animal lovers, are completely sane to bureau-rats who’s salary increases, retirement and weekly sustenance depend on innovative ways to transfer wealth from the regulated to the regulators.

Just down the trail to New York 88 new taxes have been deviously hatched by the lowly staff of Governor David Paterson to help pay for his flawed $15.4 billion budget gap. Hookers who have enjoyed a tax break on work clothes worth less than $110, won’t any more. An 18% increase on sodas is proposed; higher gas tax, increased taxi tax, boats, cars, rental car taxes, cigars, iPods, etc. Plush governmental cubicles high in the New York sky are filled with think-tank devious minds searching the alleys for a new tax source to increase the regulator’s revenue. New York Conservative Party Chairman, Michael Long says, “You’re (Gov. Paterson) sending notice to the people of New York that we really don’t want you here.”

Tribute ideas like the USDA’s NAIS, horse licensing and the New York taxationists search the world over to locate new and innovative collection methods. It is one thing to develop a new tax and another to collect it. That is where enforcements are enacted with fines, late penalties, and refusal-to-comply fees.

In Australia a tax called the National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) has been operational for several years. Herds of computer toting Biosecurity Officers now stalk the Outback to locate animal owners out of compliance; conviction is up to a $4000 fine for not registering a livestock premises.

The love of companion animals is multiplying in affection world wide. What a sadistic way to create funding, to assess a new tribute for pets, livestock and beloved family animals. Animal licensing is the contemporary government way to tax not just the animal, but the joy and profit of livestock ownership.

In New Hampshire it starts out,

 

 

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Nine, and then explains for Equine Licenses. Amend RSA 435, Sec 41, etc. In a scoop shovel it is proposed, $25 per year, every year, and each animal must have a number. The number process approved by the USDA is a computer chip, surgically injected under the skin by a USDA licensed veterinarian at a fee of $75 to $125 per equine, depending on how many in the remuda.

The Fiscal Impact: “The Department of Agriculture, Markets, and Food and the New Hampshire Municipal Association estimates this bill will increase state and local revenue, and increase local expenditures by an indeterminable amount in FY 2010 and each year thereafter. There will be no fiscal impact on county revenue or state and county expenditures.”

On July 1, will the horse owners of New Hampshire migrate to other states or will a large population of equine feces machines establish residence on the Concord State Capitol lawn?

This may be the time and place to rethink the New Hampshire motto: “LIVE FREE OR DIE.”

First Australia, the NAIS, the New Hampshire Equine Licenses—-all innovations of hostage taxation, which is a spreading livestock disease in itself. The mystery of expanding government is not how it works, but how in the world to make it stop!

PROPOSED: Socialized Medicine, Gov’t Surveillance & DNA Grab! Minnesota

Governor Pawlenty Supports Illegal Actions of MN Health Commissioner

CCHC held a press conference on December 10, 2008 challenging Governor Pawlenty to require health commissioner, Dr. Sanne Magnan, M.D., to follow the state’s genetic privacy law. WCCO-TV, KSTP-TV, and FOX-9 News gave the press conference great coverage, yet the Governor did not respond.

Instead, on January 9th, the Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Health proposed to try again to eliminate parent consent requirements in the genetic privacy law by giving the Department access to baby DNA for at least two years. CCHC’s president, Twila Brase, was quoted in the St. Paul Pioneer Press saying, “This is the genetic profile of every child and the bloodline of every family…What they’re trying to say is, ‘For two years, it’s ours.'”

Last week, Twila Brase, president of CCHC, met TWICE with staff at the Governor’s Office. She met with the governor’s Director of Legislative and Cabinet Affairs, and his senior health care policy advisor. She made it clear that the Governor would have to publicly state that he is requiring the MN Department of Health to follow the law or we would feel free to assert three things as of January 21, 2009 (see below). No such proclamation has been made.

Thus, we regret to say, Governor Tim Pawlenty supports the following:

  • Violation of state law by the Minnesota Department of Health.
  • Government ownership and warehousing of newborn baby DNA.
  • Forcing newborn citizens and their families to become involuntary subjects of government genetic research.

To Contact Governor Pawlenty: 651-296-3391; 800-657-3717; tim.pawlenty@state.mn.us (voice mail is best)


Time to Twitter – Get CCHC Tweets!

CCHC has set up two sites on Twitter.

One is focused on genetic privacy and DNA ownership rights; the other is focused on the advance of socialized medicine. Within a hour of creating the NoSocializedMed twitter site, it had a follower…before CCHC even announced the site. Expect tweets straight from the halls of the legislature.

For those who do not know, “tweets” can only be 140 characters long. In other words, VERY SHORT!

U.S. House Republicans used Twitter to put pressure on Democrats during their energy sit-in during the 2008 August recess.

Military prosecutors quit in protest over abuse of prisoners

Bush promised to close it.

McCain promised to close it.

Experienced military prosecutors have resigned over the out-of-control abuses and violations of the rule of law there.

Now the right wing psychopaths who nearly succeeded in destroying the country by supporting a criminal in the White House are howling because Obama is doing what needs to be done.

Indepth Update from the Constitutional Alliance-Real ID

IS THE CURE WORSE THAN THE DISEASE?

Would Real ID, Biometrics, RFID and International Data Sharing Really Stop Terrorism? “We have been busy continuing to go state to state to ensure our legislation opposing the Real ID Act 2005 is filed and introduced in as many states as possible. We have also included Representative Charles Key’s, State of Oklahoma, Tenth Amendment legislation that stands up for states’ rights. In some states we have gone much further. We have proposed legislation that would forbid the collection of biometric samples, biometric data and social security numbers. The only exception to the collection of social security numbers is when the social security number is needed for income or wage reporting purposes. The legislation applies equally to state agencies/departments and to groups/organizations. Further, legislation opposing the use of RFID technology in identification documents and participation in AAMVA’s (American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators) DLA (Driver’s License Agreement) which would create a single jurisdiction of the United States, Canada and Mexico for the sharing of citizens information contained in motor vehicle databases has been filed.” (end excerpt) Read full article here:

“Fusion Centers” in YOUR Neighborhood are Spying on YOU!

Leave a comment

Just a short note, here, to bring to your attention the very troubling news about the extent to which the Office of Homeland Security is coordinating it’s efforts to spy on the people by creating what are called “Fusion Centers” in every state and in cities across the country.

These Fusion Centers are manned by full time staff trained in internet surveilance who are gathering information on U.S. citizens and then giving it to OHS. The result is a huge monolithic database of everyone’s activity – every message board post, email, site you’ve viewed, etc. Basically, this is data mining on steroids.

For more info, read the article on Infowars.com, or view the ACLU’s map of where the Fusion Centers are located and find out where the one in YOUR area is located. Mine is right here in Oklahoma City’s Homeland Security Office. No doubt my ISP is cooperating fully with them, so, I may be writing from Guantanamo Bay next week. Oh, wait; Obama “closed” that, right? Yeah…

USDA Unable to Weed Out GMO foods

WASHINGTON, Jan. 14, 2009 (Reuters) — The U.S. food supply is at risk of being invaded by unapproved imports of genetically modified crops and livestock, a USDA internal audit report released Wednesday said.

The report, released by the U.S. Agriculture Department’s Office of Inspector General, said the USDA does not have an import control policy to regulate imported GMO animals.

Its policy for GMO crops, though adequate now, could become outdated as other nations boost production of their own GMO crops, the report added.

The Office of Inspector General recommended the department develop an overall control policy for all GMO imports and implement a strategy to monitor GMO crop and livestock development in foreign nations.

The audit found that the USDA needs to develop screening measures to weed out undeclared GMO crops and livestock. The department currently has no measures in place to identify a shipment of unapproved GMO imports unknown to the U.S. regulatory system, the report said.

The United States has been a forerunner in developing GMO plants and animals since the 1990s, but other countries are beginning to invest more in biotechnology.

The report noted that China has pledged $500 million toward biotechnology by 2010 and has developed a new form of GMO rice.

Although the implications associated with Americans consuming unapproved GMO food are unknown, the health and environmental concerns that it poses could threaten commerce.

The USDA’s lack of policies and monitoring capability on the matter reflect the United States’ dominance over the global market concerning genetic modification.

“Department officials stated that they have not needed such a strategy because most transgenic plants were first developed within the U.S. regulatory system, and it was unlikely that anything unfamiliar would be imported,” the report said.

“And transgenic animals have not been commercialized,” the report also said of officials’ reasoning behind being slow to develop regulations.

The USDA, for the most part, agreed with the report’s recommendations.

In a letter to the Office of Inspector General, the USDA said it would create a plan for monitoring GMO plant and animal developments worldwide by November 30. But further action on policy would require approval from the incoming administration.

Last Minute Rulemaking by Bush USDA Threatens Organic Farmers

Leave a comment

http://www.commondreams.org/newswire/2008/12/03-5

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Consumers and Farmers Join Together to Promote Organic Integrity

Excerpted from the full article:

CORNUCOPIA, Wisconsin – December 3 – Many media outlets, from the New York Times to the blogosphere, have tracked what has been dubbed the “corporate takeover” of organic farming.  One of the hottest controversies in this rapidly growing $20 billion industry has been giant factory farms milking thousands of cows each in feedlots and masquerading as organic.  Some of these industrial dairies are controlled by the nation’s largest agribusinesses.

Since the organic community first appealed to the USDA for better clarification and enforcement of regulations requiring organic dairy producers to graze their cattle, nearly 9 years ago, the number of giant industrial dairy operations, with as many as 10,000 cows, has grown from two to approximately 15.  After years of delay, the USDA has finally responded with a new proposed rule that they said would crack down on abuses. 

“The birds have come home to roost,” said Mark Kastel, Senior Farm Policy Analyst for The Cornucopia Institute.  The Wisconsin-based farm policy research group estimates there are 35,000 to 45,000 cows on giant CAFOs (concentrated animal feeding operations) operating in the United States producing as much as 40% of the nation’s organic milk supply.

Mark Dankof on Obama, the Gaza Holocaust, and “The Absurdity of Hope”

” All the unmistakable signs are there: the continued death of an American manufacturing economy which lost 3 million jobs in the Bush years alone; the first of a series of trillion dollar budget deficits in 2009; the continuation of unwinnable wars of colonialism and counterinsurgency in Iraq and Afghanistan that Mr. Stieglitz of the World Bank calculates will cost 3 trillion dollars at the unseen end of the tunnel; a prime-the-pump response to economic catastrophe that involves both the $750 billion bank bailout and Mr. Obama’s $800 billion in “stimulus”; an ongoing reliance upon foreign international borrowing and the printing of fiat money by the Fed to finance this smoke-and-mirrors game; the continued Balkanization of the United States courtesy of 20 million illegal aliens; and further cultural and moral malignancy metastasis, courtesy of the Jewish-dominated gay, abortion, and Hollywood constituencies presently infatuated with the Man from Kenya and Cook County.

     Ex-KGB analyst and Russian foreign ministry instructor, Igor Panarin, has painted his own prophetic picture of coming “change” in America by the year 2010, in an article posted recently in the Wall Street Journal. He predicts the coming breakup of the United States into four sectors, each dominated by a foreign power. Panarin’s thesis involves the same moral, political, and military analysis of the United States that I have proffered as an American paleoconservative. Even more ominously, the suggestion that 2010 is the year of prophetic fulfillment suggests that the good Russian professor has been reading Daniel’s account of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, or the Judean prophet’s proclamation of the end of Belshazzar’s reign and the Babylonian Empire.

     My prediction: some version of Igor Panarin’s portrait is about to be painted, and very soon.” (end excerpt)

The USDA…An unelected bureaucracy gone wild.

Leave a comment

The USDA is an unelected bureaucracy which seems to have come to its own conclusions regarding the law and is busying itself with attempting to implement the illegal and unconstitutional National Animal Identification System.

 

Because the proposed system is blatantly unconstitutional and a direct assault on our right to own private property and to be free of encumbrance or interference from the government as long as our activity remains lawful and legal, I began wondering just how USDA and its globalist, corporate pandering, minions were intending to not only implement but to also enforce this illegal attack on private homes and businesses. 

 

How does an agency of the federal government set about avoiding a conflict with the Constitution and its Bill of Rights, and implement a program that assaults and renders as useless those very same rights? 

 

Please look at the list below and see if you can find any law, any proposed bill, or in fact any indication that we even have a congress that might have had a say in this.  These of course are not all the players and this list does not include the Frankenfood corporations like Monsanto and Syngenta among many others, but it should give you a clear picture of how the USDA intends to circumvent the Constitution and your rights to be left alone by government: to be secure in papers, person and effects.

 

  • International Animal Court Treaty
  • International Criminal Court
  • International property Code
  • International Standards.org
  • International Committee on Animal Standards
  • International Standards for Electric Identification of Animals
  • World Organization for Animal Health
  • International Phytosanitary Agreements
  • World Trade Organization

 

This is kind of like finding Waldo…..only the Waldo in this puzzle is congress and they are no where to be found.  No mention of US laws or the Constitution either. 

 

Everyone of these organizations or treaty’s is directly tied to the World Trade Organization. 

 

The World Trade Organization is tied to the World Bank  

 

The World Bank is tied to the International Monetary Fund

 

All of these are subject to the International Criminal Court

 

And every treaty, organization, trade organization, bank, money handler, committee, standard and code is all tied to AGENDA 21 from the United Nations.

 

The USDA has neither the power nor the legitimacy to mandate or attempt to make mandatory any program or plan that is derived from international policies and agendas intended to usurp and replace Constitutional laws and protections and rights.  These international laws, codes and regulations are being utilized specifically because our laws would prohibit not only implementation, but enforcement.  Enforcement, by necessity requires lawful validation which could not be gained under US laws or the Constitution.

 

The recent Federal Register entry, January 13, 2009 citing the USDA’s claim that mandatory implementation will supersede and preempt any local or state laws that have been passed allowing NAIS registration to be only voluntary an dnow making it mandatory, is null on its face.

 

The USDA is nothing more than an agency and as such cannot lawfully make such a declaration.  The 10th and 14th Amendments gives states rights over those of the government.  In this case, this is only an agency of the government…..not Congress or the President.  And it is one of these two only, who can legislate or pass laws which must be attended by the population.  The USDA, no matter how grandiose their thinking, is neither of these bodies.

 

And, no matter what international plan or organization is hiding behind this infringement on our sovereignty, we as American citizens are bound by one set of laws originating from the Constitution.  If the USDA is so enamored with international organizations, holding them in higher regard than our own Constitution then please let me be the first to invite each and every one of them, including Colin Peterson (D) MN and Tom Harkin(D) IA, to take their leave. 

 

I’ll help raise the money for tickets to anywhere you want to go…..as long as it is far, far away from the US.
