BREAKING : Japan Considering Dumping Fukushima’s Radioactive Water Into The Pacific

Massive Fukushima catastrophe now being exposed as criminal Japanese government, "mainstream media" cover-up; Independent Media, so-called "conspiracy theorists," vindicated on coverage; Japanese government. TEPCO can dump their radioactive water inland, must not be allowed to poison the world

Japan’s nuclear regulator said on Monday it may have to think about dumping contaminated cooling water from the wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant into the Pacific.


Melted-down Fukushima reactor smokes and burns
There are over 1,000 tanks on-site containing the water, and one has already leaked 300 tons. Water near one tank has radiation levels 18 times higher than previously reported.

“As the detected radiation was Beta, or minimum radiation, it will not penetrate as long as there is a 5-10 millimetre-thick plastic shield or you wear leather shoes. It should be OK, even if you stand on it for a while,” said the Chairman of Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority Shunichi Tanaka on Monday.

Yet the water discovered near the bottom of the tank on Sunday was measured at 1,800 millisieverts an hour, deadly after just four hours exposure. Officials are unable to explain this radiation spike, and have belatedly confirmed 300 tons of water is seeping into the sea every day.

“We think that contaminated water management by your company has completely fallen apart,” Hiroshi Kishi, chairman of the Japan Fisheries Co-operative, told Tepco’s president, Naomi Hirose, during a meeting in Tokyo last week.

Indonesian "Walking Shark" Discovered Off Eastern Maluku Island Of Halmahera

Discovery of new Indonesian marine species on the rise, hemiscyllium halmahera excites scientists

Scientists have discovered the third known species of walking shark in Indonesia. Which means that there are, apparently, other walking shark species. And also, that sharks walk.


Time to take a moment to let that sink in. Meanwhile, watch the video above. The new species, called Hemiscyllium halmahera, is a type of epaulette shark described in the journal Aqua: the International Journal of Ichthyology. The shark lives off the coral reefs along the coast of Halmahera, a remote Indonesian island.

"Its features include a general brown coloration with numerous clusters of mainly 2-3 dark polygonal spots,” according to the dry abstract, which doesn’t really delve into the fact that it walks on rocks.

Epaulette sharks, so named for the dramatic badge-like spot behind the pectoral fin, use their fins to help navigate the uneven environment of a coral reef.

Some researchers have studied its gait to try and understand how sea creatures might have first evolved into landlubbers, according to the ReefQuest Centre for Shark Research.




“The wriggling gait of the Epaulette Shark has been studied as a model of the probable limb movements used by the first tetrapods (four-footed vertebrates) to clamber from the sea onto land,” the center says. “This research provides evidence supporting the evolutionary theory that the paired limb movements necessary for terrestrial locomotion predate the first amphibians.”

The discovery of the newly named shark highlights the plight of sharks in Indonesia, where they are heaviliy hunted for their meat, says Conservation International.

“For nearly three decades, Indonesia has led the world in the export of dried shark fins and other products from elasmobranchs (sharks, fins and skates),” study coauthor Mark Erdmann wrote in a blog for the nonprofit organization.

Finding the new epaulette shark is a promising sign that the tide is turning and that new environmental protections may be working, Erdmann said.

Fukushima Radiation Readings 18 Times Higher

Imad Khaduri predicted this catastrophe in the first week following the tsunami, and was called a "scare monger" and "conspiracy theorist" at the time by, among others, the so-called "mainstream media"

SKY NEWS
09/01/2013

An operator at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan has said radiation readings are 18 times higher than previously measured.

 
Fukushima disaster was - and is - a huge cover-up
The staff member said they had found highly radioactive water dripping from a pipe used to connect two coolant tanks and that it had been patched up using tape.

The discovery of the pipe came a day after Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) said it found new radiation hotspots at four sites around coolant tanks, with one reading at 1,800 millisieverts per hour - a dose that would kill a human left exposed to it in four hours.
Last week the plant operator admitted 300 tonnes of toxic water had seeped out of one of the vast containers - one of around 1,000 on the site - before anyone had noticed.

The spill sparked fears the toxic water may have seeped into the nearby ocean and was categorised as a Level 3 event, the most serious category since the meltdown itself.

The plant was severely damaged in March 2011 following an earthquake and tsunami which killed thousands of people and displaced many more.


The so-called "mainstream media" continues the cover-up
In response to growing domestic and international criticism over Tepco's handling of the crisis, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe promised the world his government would play a greater role in stopping leaks of highly radioactive water.

"The accident in Fukushima cannot be left entirely to Tokyo Electric Power. There is a need for the government to play a role with a sense of urgency, including taking measures to deal with the waste water," he said.

Mr Abe's pledge came as the world's nuclear watchdog urged Japan to explain more clearly what is happening at Fukushima and avoid sending "confusing messages" about the disaster.

 
Legitimate news bureau RT was ignored, sidelined when they reported the real truth that is still emerging

Sky's foreign affairs correspondent Lisa Holland visited Fukushima on August 23 and was given access to government efforts to restore confidence in the crippled plant.

She said there was little sign of life in the residential areas around the facility and spoke to people who said they will not go back to their homes until they have been told the truth about the dangers by ministers.

BREAKING : Obama 'Has The Right' To Strike Syria Regardless Of Congress Vote, Says Kerry

Insane swift boat traitor now makes ludicrous claim that White House has "signatures" of Sarin in hair and blood samples taken by "independent first-responders," says Obama doesn't need Congress approval to bomb Syria; hilarious war criminal Rumsfeld emerges from hiding to ejaculate more verbal vomit

The Guardian
By Spencer Ackerman

The US has evidence that sarin nerve gas was used in chemical attacks outside Damascus last month and could go ahead with military strikes against Bashar al-Assad's regime even without the backing of Congress, the US secretary of state, John Kerry, has said.


U.S. war criminal  Kerry blows off Congress, Constitution
A day after Barack Obama vowed to put any intervention in Syria to a vote of both the Senate and House of Representatives, Kerry said the administration was confident of winning a motion of the kind that David Cameron unexpectedly lost last week. "We don't contemplate that the Congress is going to vote no," Kerry said, but he stressed the president had the right to take action "no matter what Congress does".

In a round of appearances on the Sunday political shows in the US, Kerry said the evidence of sarin came from samples from first responders who had helped victims of the attacks. "[We have] blood and hair samples that have come to us through a secure chain of custody from east Damascus – it has tested positive for signatures of sarin. So each day that goes by this case is even stronger," he said.

Kerry said America's evidence for the use of sarin nerve gas had not come from the UN. He gave no further details of the source of the samples, or where or when they had been tested.


Nutcase Obama criminals now believe they are omnipotent, can get away with the same Bush/Cheney terrorization of Congress, American public

He said the Obama administration's clear preference was to win a vote in Congress, which could come as early as next week, after politicians return from their summer recess on 9 September. He could "hear the complaints" about presidential abuse had Obama not gone to Congress, and its backing would give any military action greater credibility: "We are stronger as a nation when we act together." But he added: "America intends to act."

On Sunday, Britain definitively ruled out any involvement in military strikes against Syria even if further chemical attacks take place.


Power mad, rabid White House criminals will be held responsible for all military deaths resulting from Syria bombings

William Hague, the foreign secretary, said Britain would offer only diplomatic support to its allies. "Parliament has spoken. I don't think it is realistic to think that we can go back to parliament every week with the same question having received no for an answer."


War criminal Rumsfeld emerges from hiding to weigh in on Syria
His remarks were echoed by the chancellor, George Osborne, who said he did not think more evidence or more UN reports would have convinced the MPs who voted against intervention. He also ruled out a rerun of the vote.

Syrian opposition figures have reacted angrily to what they perceive as America's delay in striking against Assad. While the Obama administration insists that military intervention would be a punishment for the chemical weapons attack and a deterrent against future incidents rather than an attempt at regime change, many in the fractured opposition hope it will tip the military balance in their favour after a two and a half year civil war that has killed about 100,000 people.

Samir Nishar, of the opposition Syrian National Coalition, called Obama a "weak president", according to CNN.

The mood among government forces in Syria was triumphant after Obama's speech, with claims in the state-run media that the west had backed down because it was afraid of a confrontation.

Syria's permanent representative to the UN, Bashar al-Jaafari, said Obama and Cameron had decided to seek approval before military action because they were looking for a way out after banging the drums of war, the official news agency Sana reported. Jaafari said the two leaders had "climbed to the top of the tree and don't know how to get down".

The UN said it had asked the chemical weapons team to expedite its report into the use of the weapons. "The secretary general took note of the announcement by President Obama yesterday on the referral to Congress. He regards it as one aspect of an effort to achieve a broad-based international consensus on measures in response to any use of chemical weapons," UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said.

"Use of chemical weapons will not be accepted under any circumstances," he added, asking that the investigation mission "should be given an opportunity to succeed".

Kerry also suggested that Obama will not limit US involvement in Syria's civil war to cruise missile strikes provoked by the use of chemical weapons. The administration "may even be able to provide greater support to the opposition", he said. Obama began providing weapons to Syrian rebels after determining earlier this year that Assad had carried out a smaller-scale chemical attack.

But there is a deep reluctance within the US military to bless even a one-off military strike. General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and a multi-tour veteran of Iraq, has voiced such fears for more than two years.

Some leading figures on Capitol Hill predicted that Obama would win. "At the end of the day, Congress will rise to the occasion," Representative Mike Rogers, the chairman of the House intelligence committee, told CNN.

But others were less sure. Senator Rand Paul, a libertarian Republican, put the chances of an authorisation vote in the House of Representatives at 50-50. "I think the Senate will rubber stamp what he wants but the House will be a much closer vote," he told NBC.

Former Republican presidential candidate John McCain said the administration needed a more decisive plan to topple the Assad regime. But he warned against the possibility of Congress defying the president. "The consequences of a Congress of the United States overriding a decision of the president of the United States on this magnitude are really very serious," he told Face the Nation on CBS.

BREAKING : Egypt Expels Three Jazeera Journalists Over Work Without Accreditation

Egyptian authorities raid CIA propagandist Al Jazeera offices, seize equipment, shut down Obama Qatari mouthpiece; remaining Al Jazeera spies go into hiding, continue to broadcast illegally from Cairo using cellphones; after being thrown under bus by Doha, yet more resignations of journalists

Middle East Online
09/01/2013

CAIRO - 
Egypt on Sunday expelled three foreign journalists working as freelancers for Al-Jazeera television's English channel, the state news agency MENA reported.
Obama shills ejected from yet another Middle East country
Airport security officials, quoted by MENA, said the three men left on a flight to London.

Correspondent Wayne Haye, a New Zealander, South African cameraman Adil Bradlow and Irish producer Russ Finn were arrested last Tuesday while covering the political crisis in Egypt.

Police said they did not have press accreditation.

The Qatar-based channel said last week: "There has also been a campaign against Al-Jazeera, in particular, as the channel's offices were raided last month and security forces seized equipment which has yet to be returned."

Egyptian authorities and local media have accused Al-Jazeera of biased reporting on the popularly-backed coup that toppled Islamist president Mohamed Morsi on July 3 and on its bloody aftermath.
Despite ejections AJ whores continue to shill for Obama criminals
The government has levelled similar accusations against other foreign media.

Police have also detained a correspondent for Al-Jazeera's Arabic channel, Abdullah al-Shami, and Mohamed Badr, a cameraman for its Egyptian affiliate, for more than a month.

On Friday, the interior ministry said police seized two vans with four cameras and transmission equipment belonging to Al-Jazeera's Egypt affiliate, Al-Jazeera Mubasher Misr.

According to state media, the government has called for the closure of the news channel, which has already relocated much of its operations to Qatar.

U.S. Spurs Syria Militants To Use Chemical Weapons

Swift boat traitor, mental midget Kerry produces instant"evidence" of Syrian gas attack, while it will take UN scientists 3 WEEKS to produce lab results; U.S./CIA owned Arab League panicking, demands Obama attack Syria    

PRESS TV
09/01/2013

A prominent political analyst says Washington is encouraging foreign-backed militants to use chemical weapons in Syria, while accusing President Bashar al-Assad of using the killer arms. 
 

Victims of CIA/FSA gas attack
The comments were made by Professor Mohammad Marandi from the University of Tehran in a recent interview with China’s CCTV television channel.

“The US is encouraging the extremists, the Takfiris, to use more chemical weapons because every time they do it, the Syrian government will be blamed and the Americans will attack it. So they will kill Syrian people and America will attack Syria,” the political analyst said.

Marandi said the United States was repeating history a day after President Barack Obama announced that he would seek Congress approval to carry out a military strike against Syria over its alleged use of chemical weapons on August 21.

The analyst said the US had acted similarly during the 1980-1988 Iraqi imposed war against Iran. 


“According to Wikileaks documents, they told their diplomats to blame Iran. So they were helping [former Iraqi leader] Saddam [Hussein] use chemical weapons and were trying to convince the international community that the victim was carrying it out.”

Traitor, moral, physical coward Kerry says U.S. has "evidence"
According to professor Marandi, the US is “dishonestly” blaming Assad’s government while the evidence of chemical weapons use is in reality pointing towards the militants.

He also pointed to Washington’s convenient silence over a statement made by UN official Carla Del Ponte, who has reported indications suggesting the opposition had used sarin gas in Syria, back in April. 


“The Americans not only have used chemical weapons in Vietnam, not only did they use depleted uranium in Iraq, but also during the… [Iraqi-imposed] war [against Iran], the Americans helped Saddam use chemical weapons against Iranians and Iraqi civilians, and I’m a victim of those chemical attacks,” Marandi noted.
 
He also said that prior to its invasion of Iraq in 2003, the US had also “given people very well-presented fabrications of evidence” in order to gain approval for an attack.


UN investigation team says three weeks to process samples
Meanwhile, a recent article circulated widely on the internet suggests that the militants had received chemical weapons from Saudi intelligence chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan Al Saud.

Talk of a possible attack on Syria intensified after the opposition claimed Damascus used chemical weapons in the Damascus suburbs of Ain Tarma, Zamalka and Jobar on August 21.

The recent developments come as Iran, Russia, China, and the UN have been warning against a military intervention in Syria.

Syria Insurgents Receive Salaries in U.S. Dollars - RT Video

CIA trained, supported, led "insurgents" saving up for that big screen TV; will be surprised when CIA promise of U.S. visa never materializes; Saudi Arabia, Qatar providing money for genocide   

PRESS TV
10/12/2012

Foreign-backed insurgents in Syria have admitted that they receive salaries from their regional and trans-regional supporters in US dollars for fighting against the government of President Bashar al-Assad.


This baby was killed by Obama, CIA, Clinton and U.S. tax dollars
The insurgents make thumbprints in ink next to their names and receive USD 150 a month for fighting against Syrian military forces.

The commanders of the insurgents in the flashpoint city of Aleppo distributed the first salaries of the armed groups, saying the money is coming from some foreign states, including Qatar and Turkey.
The military councils "are undertaking to distribute monthly salaries to the fighters, especially on the front lines," said a commander of the armed gangs, Abdul Salam Humaidi.


That's right Americans - you paid for this personification of evil, this monstrosity

"The Military Council (is) distributing the salaries, with Qatari support... of $150 per person registered for two months," said Haji al-Bab, another insurgent commander.

Another commander of the armed gangs said the sources of the money were ‘Turkey and some Persian Gulf states.’


Obama, Clinton, Panetta Petraeus will be charged with genocide
Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011.

The Syrian government has long said that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country and accuses Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey of arming the opposition.

A recent New York Times report suggested that Saudi Arabia and Qatar have been funneling money and arms to Syrian insurgents for months.

CIA Popularized ‘Conspiracy Theory’ Term To Silence Dissent

Murdering CIA scum busted for Syrian FSA gas attacks, will be disbanded and hunted down worldwide for their crimes past and present and executed... there will be no rocks big enough to hide under

MEDIA ROOTS

In an era of rampant surveillance, government secrecy, and whistleblower crackdowns, more and more questions have arisen over the actions and intentions of the US government. But regardless of how doubtful we may be of its justifications, we’re taught to just accept the explanation that’s given.


Mass murderer Obama tries, fails to intimidate real journalists
And if we don’t – if we openly acknowledge the gaping holes – that makes us ‘conspiracy theorists’, a pejorative term that for years has been cast on those who have been bold enough to seek the truth.

Breaking the Set reports on when the term became an establishment tool to shut down critical thinking and how labeling truth-seekers as ‘conspiracy theorists’ damages democracy.

Breaking the Set also calls out MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow for promoting the notion that violence is rooted in conspiracy theories, while disregarding the importance of questioning official government narratives.

New Studies: ‘Conspiracy Theorists’ Sane; Government Dupes Crazy, Hostile

The dedicated professional journalists that have been denigrated as "conspiracy theorists" by the Obama criminal regime and their "mainstream media" CIA lackeys now bury the White House criminals with past and present publication of the TRUTH

PRESS TV

Recent studies by psychologists and social scientists in the US and UK suggest that contrary to mainstream media stereotypes, those labeled “conspiracy theorists” appear to be saner than those who accept the official versions of contested events.


"Mainstream media" fraud "journalists" are CIA fronts
The most recent study was published on July 8th by psychologists Michael J. Wood and Karen M. Douglas of the University of Kent (UK). Entitled “What about Building 7? A social psychological study of online discussion of 9/11 conspiracy theories,” the study compared “conspiracist” (pro-conspiracy theory) and “conventionalist” (anti-conspiracy) comments at news websites.

The authors were surprised to discover that it is now more conventional to leave so-called conspiracist comments than conventionalist ones: “Of the 2174 comments collected, 1459 were coded as conspiracist and 715 as conventionalist.” In other words, among people who comment on news articles, those who disbelieve government accounts of such events as 9/11 and the JFK assassination outnumber believers by more than two to one. That means it is the pro-conspiracy commenters who are expressing what is now the conventional wisdom, while the anti-conspiracy commenters are becoming a small, beleaguered minority.


"Mainstream media" destroyed UK PM David Cameron
Perhaps because their supposedly mainstream views no longer represent the majority, the anti-conspiracy commenters often displayed anger and hostility: “The research… showed that people who favoured the official account of 9/11 were generally more hostile when trying to persuade their rivals.”

Additionally, it turned out that the anti-conspiracy people were not only hostile, but fanatically attached to their own conspiracy theories as well. According to them, their own theory of 9/11 – a conspiracy theory holding that 19 Arabs, none of whom could fly planes with any proficiency, pulled off the crime of the century under the direction of a guy on dialysis in a cave in Afghanistan – was indisputably true. The so-called conspiracists, on the other hand, did not pretend to have a theory that completely explained the events of 9/11: “For people who think 9/11 was a government conspiracy, the focus is not on promoting a specific rival theory, but in trying to debunk the official account.”


Obama's murdering CIA has deeply penetrated social media
In short, the new study by Wood and Douglas suggests that the negative stereotype of the conspiracy theorist – a hostile fanatic wedded to the truth of his own fringe theory – accurately describes the people who defend the official account of 9/11, not those who dispute it.

Additionally, the study found that so-called conspiracists discuss historical context (such as viewing the JFK assassination as a precedent for 9/11) more than anti-conspiracists. It also found that the so-called conspiracists to not like to be called “conspiracists” or “conspiracy theorists.”

Both of these findings are amplified in the new book Conspiracy Theory in America by political scientist Lance deHaven-Smith, published earlier this year by the University of Texas Press. Professor deHaven-Smith explains why people don’t like being called “conspiracy theorists”: The term was invented and put into wide circulation by the CIA to smear and defame people questioning the JFK assassination! “The CIA’s campaign to popularize the term ‘conspiracy theory’ and make conspiracy belief a target of ridicule and hostility must be credited, unfortunately, with being one of the most successful propaganda initiatives of all time.”


Hundreds of legitimate journalists have been murdered by the CIA
In other words, people who use the terms “conspiracy theory” and “conspiracy theorist” as an insult are doing so as the result of a well-documented, undisputed, historically-real conspiracy by the CIA to cover up the JFK assassination. That campaign, by the way, was completely illegal, and the CIA officers involved were criminals; the CIA is barred from all domestic activities, yet routinely breaks the law to conduct domestic operations ranging from propaganda to assassinations.

DeHaven-Smith also explains why those who doubt official explanations of high crimes are eager to discuss historical context. He points out that a very large number of conspiracy claims have turned out to be true, and that there appear to be strong relationships between many as-yet-unsolved “state crimes against democracy.” An obvious example is the link between the JFK and RFK assassinations, which both paved the way for presidencies that continued the Vietnam War. According to DeHaven-Smith, we should always discuss the “Kennedy assassinations” in the plural, because the two killings appear to have been aspects of the same larger crime.


Freedom of the press no longer exists in Obama's Amerika
Psychologist Laurie Manwell of the University of Guelph agrees that the CIA-designed “conspiracy theory” label impedes cognitive function. She points out, in an article published inAmerican Behavioral Scientist (2010), that anti-conspiracy people are unable to think clearly about such apparent state crimes against democracy as 9/11 due to their inability to process information that conflicts with pre-existing belief.

In the same issue of ABS, University of Buffalo professor Steven Hoffman adds that anti-conspiracy people are typically prey to strong “confirmation bias” – that is, they seek out information that confirms their pre-existing beliefs, while using irrational mechanisms (such as the “conspiracy theory” label) to avoid conflicting information.

The extreme irrationality of those who attack “conspiracy theories” has been ably exposed by Communications professors Ginna Husting and Martin Orr of Boise State University. In a 2007 peer-reviewed article entitled “Dangerous Machinery: ‘Conspiracy Theorist’ as a Transpersonal Strategy of Exclusion,” they wrote:


Obama criminals continue to jail real journalists, whistleblowers
“If I call you a conspiracy theorist, it matters little whether you have actually claimed that a conspiracy exists or whether you have simply raised an issue that I would rather avoid… By labeling you, I strategically exclude you from the sphere where public speech, debate, and conflict occur.”

But now, thanks to the internet, people who doubt official stories are no longer excluded from public conversation; the CIA’s 44-year-old campaign to stifle debate using the “conspiracy theory” smear is nearly worn-out. In academic studies, as in comments on news articles, pro-conspiracy voices are now more numerous – and more rational – than anti-conspiracy ones. No wonder the anti-conspiracy people are sounding more and more like a bunch of hostile, paranoid cranks.
