Fukushima: “An Ongoing Global Radiological Catastrophe” & “A Huge Coverup” – Dr. Helen Caldicott

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts:Dr. Helen Caldicott is considered by many to be one of the foremost experts on Nuclear Radiation. Here she shares her thoughts on the Fukushima disaster nearly a decade after it happened.
  • Reflect On:How many incidents need to occur before the human race changes? Why are we still using nuclear energy when there are several other solutions that are more harmonious with the planet and all life on it?

Despite humanity’s increasing levels of intelligence, if you were an extraterrestrial looking down on our planet, you may conclude that we are one of the dumbest species in the universe. We have so much potential, yet we cling to our archaic ways that destroy our planet and do not operate in harmony with this planet and all life on it.

by Dean Garrison, DC Clothesline:

Elizabeth Warren may have been feeling good when she drew several thousand in Minnesota, but look what Trump did in HER BACK YARD.

Things are setting up for a Trump landslide in 2020.

Wikipedia Has ICE Facilities Listed Under ‘Concentration And Internment Camps’ Section

0

by Paul Joseph Watson, Summit News:

Likely will not be edited or removed any time soon

Wikipedia, the online Encyclopedia, which has been routinely accused of left wing bias, has a list of ICE facilities under a section titled “concentration and internment camps,” and is keeping it there despite critics requesting it be removed.

The list of ICE facilities reappeared on the concentration camps page after Democrats, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, used the rhetoric to describe US holding centers on the border with Mexico.

The reason red flag laws are so dangerous is because corrupt bureaucrats will get to decide which mental states are “normal”

by Vicki Batts, Natural News:

Red flag laws are getting all kinds of praise in the media right now, heralded as the “middle ground.” Under these laws, concerned family members and police officers may petition a court to have an individual’s firearms taken away after they’ve been determined “dangerous.” While there may be some circumstances where removing potential weapons from the home is actually done for the right reasons, there are far too many ways for this system to be abused.

There are substantial concerns that these laws violate multiple constitutional rights, and that such power can (and will) be corrupted. It will not take long before any person who dares to speak out will be labeled a “danger” and have their Second Amendment rights stripped away.

On The Job Training -Ted Butler

by Theodore Butler, Silver Seek:

Tuesday’s announcement by the Justice Department of a guilty plea by a long term former trader from JPMorgan for spoofing COMEX precious metal futures was the second such guilty plea since October. Both traders are cooperating in the DOJ’s ongoing investigation.

While it took way too long for the Justice Department and the CFTC to finally crack down on spoofing, I suppose it’s a case of better late than never. And there can be little doubt that the regulators have cracked down on the illegal practice, which involves the entry and immediate cancellation of large orders solely designed to manipulate prices in the short term.

Gold, Silver, Mining Stocks: Get Ready For A Huge Ride Higher

by Dave Kranzler, Investment Research Dynamics:

Bullion Star released a graph Tuesday that showed Switzerland exported 90 tonnes of gold to the London gold market (U.K.) in July, which dwarfed exports to India and China.  Bloomberg’s spin on the data was that the gold was needed for ETFs.   Of course, as is typical, the Bloomberg “journalist” likely regurgitated “information” that came from a  source rather than fact-check.

But fact-checking shows that the number of tonnes of gold in GLD, by far the largest gold ETF, increased by only 23 tonnes during July from 800 to 823.  Assume the much smaller gold ETFs took in the same amount collectively – an estimate that is more than generous, and ETF gold flow accounts for less than 50% of the gold  exported to London.

San Francisco Changes Term ‘Convicted Felons’ To More Politically Correct ‘Elected Officials’

0

from The Babylon Bee:

SAN FRANCISCO, CA—In a move to make sure criminals are treated fairly, San Francisco has instituted a policy of referring to “convicted felons” by the much more politically correct term “elected officials.”

“These convicted felons are finding it harder to advance to higher political office when we keep bringing up their criminal activities,” said San Francisco Mayor London Breed. “We must ensure they get a fair shake at ruining even more people’s lives when they run for Congress, Senate, or the White House.”

Suddenly Leveraged Loan Issuance Gets Rough

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:

Fifth deal croaked in August. Moody’s has a cow over Ancestry.com’s deal. Deals had to be sweetened to find buyers. Retail investors bail out.

Despite the Fed’s warnings over the years about leveraged loans – including in its Financial Stability Report and in the minutes of its July meeting – the leveraged loan market has only gotten bigger and riskier and has ballooned to $1.3 trillion globally by a narrow definition, or to $3.2 trillion by a broader definition. But first signs are appearing that it’s getting rougher.

Our costly dalliance with Lord Keynes

by Alasdair Macleod, GoldMoney:

In “The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money”, Keynes virtually created macroeconomics. But Keynes was a mathematician, not an economist, and did not fully understand free markets, so he was hardly qualified to emerge as the most influential economist of the last century. His misconceptions still inform the establishment, comprising governments and their regulated financial sectors. Given that there is dawning acknowledgement that these policies are propelling leading nations into a common financial and economic crisis, a forensic dissection of Keynes’s errors and motivations is overdue. This essay is a brief attempt to rectify this omission.

Comey FBI Willfully Ignored “Highly Classified” Hillary Clinton Emails; Barr Radio Silent

from ZeroHedge:

President Obama’s FBI, ran by disgraced former director James Comey, knew about – but purposefully ignored – “highly classified” evidence in the Hillary Clinton email investigation before they downgraded their initial assessment of her crime from a felony to a “grossly negligent” mistake.

As The Hill‘s John Solomon reports, a Senate staff memo updating an ongoing inquiry by Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) reveals that the FBI decided to back off their pursuit of this damning evidence “even though the agents believed access to the sensitive evidence was “necessary” to complete the investigation,” writes Solomon.

Exposing The “Keys” to Disney’s Operations and Agenda

from Corey’s Digs:

“If the world only had the eyes to see the fibers which lay under the surface of Walt Disney’s image, they’d tar and feather him, and drag him through the streets. If only they knew what Disney’s primary goal is.”

Walt Disney was born in Chicago, in 1901 and moved with his family to Kansas City in 1910. Walt’s obsession with escapism, imagination, magic, and animals were forged on their Kansas City farm under the repressive, abusive, cruel and loveless tyranny of his father who would allegedly march them to the woodshed and dispense his brutal punishments daily.
