Lifting the Veil: Obama and the Failure of Capitalist Democracy

by grtv

"Lifting the Veil is the long overdue film that powerfully, definitively, and finally exposes the deadly 21st century hypocrisy of U.S. internal and external policies, even as it imbues the viewer with a sense of urgency and an actualized hope to bring about real systemic change while there is yet time for humanity and this planet. See this film!"
-Larry Pinkney
Editorial Board Member & Columnist
The Black Commentator

Sub-headed “Barack Obama and the failure of capitalist democracy”, this film explores the historical role of the Democratic Party as the “graveyard of social movements”, the massive influence of corporate finance in elections, the absurd disparities of wealth in the United States, the continuity and escalation of neocon policies under Obama, the insufficiency of mere voting as a path to reform, and differing conceptions of democracy itself.

Original interview footage derives from Noam Chomsky, Michael Parenti, Michael Albert, John Stauber (PR Watch), Sharon Smith (Historian), William I. Robinson (Editor, Critical Globalization Studies), Morris Berman (Author, Dark Ages America), and famed black panther Larry Pinkney.

Non-original interviews/lectures include Michael Hudson, Paul Craig Roberts, Ted Rall, Richard Wolff, Glen Ford, Lewis Black, Glenn Greenwald, George Carlin, Gerald Cliente, Chris Hedges, John Pilger, Bernie Sanders, Sheldon Wollin and Martin Luther King.

Bravo, bravo, James. That's telling 'em! Shall be back later to view it in full and state my own impressions. In any case, as of now, west is toast. And the longer it carries on, the more burnt the toast.

A noble film, indeed, by its maker Scott Noble. And a very stirring and true speech by Chris Hedges at the end. Capitalist Democracy, we shall come to your funeral with no roses in our hands. We shall not spit on your grave, but do not count on us and future generations to tend it either.

Now that was a long video, but beautifully done and worth every minute of the time it took to go through it. The conclusion was inexorable: capitalism and democracy are profoundly incompatible.

Among the speakers, hats off to that journalist of integrity Chris Hedges and also to the feisty US Senator Bernie Sanders. If US can also produce men of this calibre, why is it always being run by rogues and devils? I suppose greed is like gangrene. Only amputation can stop it from spreading. Wisconsin raise the knife, would you?

The video most definitely lifted the veil and showed us the true face of US. Not much hope of improvement lies ahead, unless the people of that country learn to walk like Egyptians. Then and only then will they be in a position to rejoin the human race on equal terms, neither inferior nor superior to the rest of mankind.

Towns vanish, thousands die – but a nation begins its fightback - 13.3.11

The cataclysm was so powerful it shifted the Earth off its axis. Then the waters hit.

After a cataclysm so powerful it moved the Earth 10 inches off its axis, Japan woke yesterday to find itself a country that had, literally, been knocked sideways.

With the north-east coast now shunted two metres from where it was on Friday morning, neighbourhood after neighbourhood is submerged under a grotesque soup of water and debris. Homes have been flattened as if by the swiping forearm of an angry giant. Tens of thousands of once orderly acres look like the world's ugliest landfill – a jumble of broken homes, cars, boats, and concrete, with shipping containers cluttering the landscape like Lego on an unkempt nursery floor.

And somewhere, under all this vast mess, are four entire trains, small towns, villages, and a fearful number of bodies. It could be 2,000, 10,000, or many times that number. In one town alone, 9,500 people are unaccounted for.

And Japan might be facing a nuclear catastrophe. But this is Japan, which will manage where others might have been daunted by the enormity of the task ahead.

Japan brings money home to rebuild - 13.3.11

NEW YORK - Shaken by the prospect of nuclear meltdown after a devastating earthquake and tsunami, Japanese investors will dump overseas assets on Monday and bring their money home to help finance reconstruction.

Positioning for this could send the dollar plummeting versus the yen on Monday and lead to a sharp slide in Treasuries since U.S. government bonds are a favorite asset of Japanese investors, market analysts said.

Stocks also are likely to come under pressure.

Japanese insurers will probably sell some of their most liquid foreign assets such as U.S. Treasuries so they can respond to the worst disaster since World War Two.

The crisis could lead to insured losses of nearly $35 billion, risk modeling company AIR Worldwide said, making it one of the most expensive disasters in history and nearly as much as the entire worldwide catastrophe loss for the global insurance industry.

Traders braced for just such an outcome on Friday, when the yen surged and Treasuries fell. The Bank of Japan probably will add money to the system to limit the liquidation of assets. But the big question remains of how much follow-through selling is yet to come.

Dan Fuss, the vice chairman of $150 billion Loomis Sayles, told Reuters on Sunday that his best guess is that Treasuries will continue to see losses.

Because Japan is the second-biggest holder of U.S. government debt and they have nearly $900 billion in dollar reserves, Fuss said Japan will likely use reserves for rebuilding.

"A big buyer of bonds is taken out of the market," Fuss said, adding that Japan "will be less able to add to their reserves and less able to buy Treasuries."

Immediate Economic fallout from Japan's seismic and cataclysmic plight: - 14.3.11

- Drop in international oil prices since Japan is no longer seen as a major customer in the immediate future.

- Stockmarkets, starting with the Nikkei, hit quite badly. Losses in Japan alone reckoned as mounting to over $3 billion.

- Inevitably the yen weakens against the dollar.

There'll be much, much more to add as we go along.

First Hiroshima, then Nagasaki, now Fukushima! What I want to know is whether the present catastrophe cannot be traced back to the first two. What did the atom bombs do to poor Japan's geographical position in the Ring of Fire? Was it being prepared for the disaster that finally overtook it in 2011?

Thanks for your post. I have not been around, because I was busy for apparent reasons.Because I live in west Japan, I am OK and so are my relatives.

But my wife comes from Ibaraki prefecture and her relatives live in Ibaragi, Fukushima, Miyagi.
They are all alive and healthy but one brother lost their house, another is in an evacuation camp with small kids. Moreover, there are terrifying news of the nuke plant accident in Fukushima.

So, my wife becomes very blue and stopped watching news.I had to console her everyday since then. (It's hard job.)

Maybe, you would say I think too much or I am too optimistic,But I feel that, once this crisis was avioded, a new era would start.

For example, this incident might trigger a huge selloff in the financial market. (The last straw that break Bernanke's back.) Since flow of money will come back to Japan, which is observable even now in thecurrency exchange market. Observe Yen has risen, not fallen. Repatriation of JPY might have started. (In my view, the source of the flow of world's money originates in Tokyo, not Wall Street anymore, as the word "Yen carry trade" indicates.)

Rising HOrus, tremendous, tremendous! Exactly my own feeling, but you expressed it much better. I shouldn't call it bland opitimism, I'd call it shining lucidity.

Japan will not have suffered in vain, of that I'm a hundred per cent sure. In the world of modernity, Japam has had a very special role to play as we all know. Now it will be Japam's turn to serve the death blow to a bloated, mad system which must expire if the rest of us are to breath in peace.

Rising Horus, our prayers go with your wife and her relatives and with all the Japanese today who are at their tether's end and have once again taken on the role of the sacrificial lamb. Stay well, Friend, stay well. Right is on your side.

ARTIFICIAL EARTHQUAKE?

Some of you may think I am crazy.
But, I really think this might have been an artificial earthquake.

As you know, President Chavez really said
"Haiti earthquake was triggered by an earthquake weapon"
Also a lot of people thinks the very huge earthquake in Sumatra in 2004(?)
was caused by the US navy.
(It was Magnitude 9.3 and of "historic scale."
And the one just happen was Magnitude 9.1 and of "historic scale."
Onle in 7 years???)

Not enough information is gathered. So, I should not jump to a conclusion.
But, to me, so many things look strange.

Just like many recent big earthquakes in Japan,

1) Epicenter is very shallow (10km or so).
2) Near a nuke power palnt.
3) Happened when US-Japan relation is rather bad.

????

Moreover, several smaller earthqukes followed
in Shizuoka and Tokyo prefectures, etc. (see the map in the previous post.)
The point is that different tectonic plates tremble almost simulataneously !!??
Can this be possible??

The map of "plates." Observe that Shizuoka is on the borderline between
Filipino and Eurasian paltes, unlike Miyagi prefecture.
A seismic schlar now said on TV "This is very a rare phenomenon."
Watching it, I grumbled "A natural one?"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Plates_tect2_en.svg


In my view, HAARP theory seems to be a chaf.
I think they simply put small hydrogen bombs under the seabed.
(Another well-known method is pouring a lot of water deep undergroung.
But this is not likely, because this time the epicenter was in the ocean.)


How do you think about it?
If you have nice information, please let me know. I would appreciate.

USS Ronald Reagan came very quickly for a rescue. Thanks. I would appreciate.

Only in 2 days....

Once again, US fleet was in nearby waters just like Haiti & Sumatra.

But, I think I should not jump to a conclusion now. At least, I have to wait for a while until scholars analyze seismic wave.

Anonymous said...

(Continued from 03:08)

In Kamaishi, Iwate prefecture, the tsunami reportedly arrived within ONE MINUTE or so.

Strange.....

Usually, the seabed is collpsed DOWNWARD by an earthquake. As a result, a huge empty space is created deep in the sea near the epicenter and sea water flows into it. Then, from a viewpoint of poeple on the shore, water rolls BACK from the land. (Most of Japanese understands what this phenomenon means and at this point they start to run away. So, not so many people die, although houses must be abondoned.) After some time, huge tsunami wave attacks the land.

But, this time, the tsunami arrived so quickly, probably because the seabed moved UPWARD, I guess.

So many things look really strange.....

The more Î read you, RH, the more compelling your arguments appear. What bothers me in the whole story is simply the role Of New Zealand in all this. How come they got the first quakes and then Japan? But, of course, with the USans, one never knows. One item to bear out part of your econ analysis.

Actually, I don't know much about the NZ earthquake a few weeks ago,simply because I was not so interested.

Looking back from now, I guess it might be a small "experiment" before the big one, or a warning to Japan.

But, one thing. Remember many whale went crazy for an unknown reason and died on a shore? 107 whales died just before the NZ earthquake.

The same thing happened in Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan on March 4th. (See the map in my previous posts.) Look at the following link (in japanese, for I was not able to find English source.)

Yomiuri Newspaper says 50 whale died. Surfers are trying to save dying ones.
http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/national/news/20110305-OYT1T00340.htm


Why do whales and dolphins go crazy and run aground? Some scholars claim that sonars of submarines shatter eardrum membrane of whales.
So they lose directions and swim like crazy.

For example, an article in Japanese I am now reading says that, it happened 2 years ago in Hawaii, when US, Japan, etc. had a naval drill and that there is a official report of US congress.

If this is right, there were submarines off Ibaraki coast before the earthquake.
What were they doing?

++++

Nikkei rebounded. Good. But, temporary anyway.
Bofore the earthquake it was around 10200. After today's rebound it's around 9000.
(Yesterday's sell-off was led by "foreign" financial institutions, say newspapers.
Today Bank of Japan probably intervened, as it declared on Monday.)

If Bernanke is out of bullets, as many people suspects, then a big downtrend starts in any financial market and is unstoppable. (In the best [or worst] case senario, it's gonna be the end of Illuminati Bankers.)

RE: Japan

I suddenly recalled poiuytr's repeated warnings of a coming nuclear war if we weren't careful enough. And it suddenly struck me that perhaps that was what Japan was after all, the first oblique shot at the WWIII, nuclear version. A thinly veiled warning to the real target China? Sacrificing longtime ally Japan to the cause would not have caused anyone much thought, I suppose. As arch-criminal Kissinger once said: To be America's enemy is dangerous, to be it's friend is fatal.

FTSE 100 up on hopes G7 will calm Japan markets
17.3.11

The FTSE 100 edged higher on hopes that the G7 will act to calm financial markets after the escalating crisis at Japan's earthquake-damage nuclear plant sent the yen soaring to a post-War high and shares falling again.

Fears of a catastrophic leak at the Fukushima nuclear plant have wiped hundreds of billions of dollars off global stock markets and pushed the yen to all-time highs.

On Monday and Tuesday the Nikkei lost 16pc, erasing all its gains this year, following Friday's massive earthquake and tsunami and the damage to the Fukushima nuclear plant, before bouncing 5.7pc on Wednesday.

The yen soared to a record high against the dollar as markets bet that many citizens and businesses are preparing to repatriate funds for the reconstruction. Although there is no evidence yet that this has started.

(If a financial disaster, 08:38, then it will finally be Japan avenging itself for close on seventy years of oppression).

Nuclear reactors causing Japan radiation built by Rockefeller controlled GE

It may be no coincidence that the nuclear reactors now exploding in Japan were all designed by the Rockefeller family controlled General Electric Corporation. It is also probably no coincidence that 24 members of the Rockefeller clan are now hiding in an underground shelter in India.

Recently a Rockefeller agent in Japan told me of a plan to build 500 nuclear reactors in China and then blow them up with an earthquake machine in order to “depopulate China.” It is critical to make sure there is no possibility of further active sabotage of the plants either by the use of human agents or else by the use of computer hacking.

Japan kicks off yen intervention as G7 agrees joint action

AFP – Tokyo shares surged 2.78 percent in early deals on Friday after the Group of Seven major economies agreed …

SYDNEY (Reuters) – Japan bought billions of dollars to restrain a soaring yen on Friday, kicking off joint market intervention by the world's richest nations to calm global markets made nervous by the threat of a meltdown at a nuclear power plant near Tokyo.

After a week of panicky trading, the U.S. dollar surged two full yen to as much as 81.83 yen, leaving behind a record low of 76.25 hit on Thursday as the Bank of Japan stepped into the market.

Traders and media reports estimated it bought more than $25 billion. Now the likes of the U.S. Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank are set to join the action in the Group of Seven's first combined intervention in a decade.

"It's going to have a very huge resonating effect on the market," said Kathy Lien, director of currency research at GFT in New York.

"Because the only type of intervention that actually works is coordinated intervention and it shows the solidarity of all central banks in terms of the severity of the situation in Japan."

Japan's Nikkei share index climbed close to 3 percent, recouping some of the week's stinging losses as Japan reeled from an earthquake, tsunami and the nuclear power plant crisis. The market's losses for the week are 10 percent.

The G7 announced its intent to jointly intervene after a short teleconference early on Friday in a demonstration of solidarity with disaster-hit Japan.

The decision came as a surprise to many because Tokyo had indicated it was looking for moral support for its attempts to assuage markets rather than joint action.

The last joint intervention was a decade ago when the rich nations moved to turn a slumping euro following its 1999 launch.

Japan's Finance Minister Yoshihiko Noda said the Bank of Japan had begun to sell yen at 8 p.m. ET and other central banks from the G7 would intervene as their markets opened.

A source told Reuters the BOJ would also leave the yen it sold in the banking system rather than mopping it up, thus adding to the vast amount of liquidity it had already provided to support its domestic markets.

Central banks will often issue bonds to mop up any extra cash in the economy that results from currency intervention for fear that the additional liquidity could fuel inflation.

On Thursday, the yen had soared to a record high of 76.25 per dollar, eclipsing its historical peak of 79.75 hit in the aftermath of the Kobe earthquake.

Response from New Zealand

After looking closely at the Christchurch quake
and all records are easily seen ... I find nothing different in the Japan quake.

However the outcome is certainly not in the interests of the US.

The fallout from this is going right over the US ... therefore what mindless fool would deliberately cause it when it's clear that the fallout would come back to bite.

It's a silly idea to consider this man made.

Earth quakes will increase because man is sucking the oil out from around the edges of the plates and worse still, pumping water into the places where the oil was.

They do that to drive the last oil out.

But if the oil was designed to lube the plates (which is what it appears to do because of location) and if by removing it the friction builds up and causes heat, and if water is forced into that heated area, all one could expect is the water to turn to steam ... which expands by some 20 times in size would drive the earth plates apart and allow more and more violent quakes to happen.

Somewhere on the 20th of this month ... just 2 days from now ... there's going to be another big one.

14 Reasons Japan's Economic Collapse Has Begun

Many in the mainstream media are claiming that the economy of Japan will bounce right back from this, but they are wrong. The tsunami decimated thousands of square miles. The loss of homes, cars, businesses and personal wealth is almost unimaginable. It is going to take many years to rebuild the roads, bridges, rail systems, ports, power lines and water systems that were lost. There are going to be a significant number of Japanese insurance companies and financial institutions that are going to be totally wiped out as a result of this great tragedy. Of course in the days ahead the Japanese people will band together and work hard to rebuild the nation, but the truth is that it is impossible to "bounce right back" from such a massive loss of wealth, assets and infrastructure.

(The one good piece of news: US evacuating its military from Japan, transferring them to S. Korea instead.)

I like it where it is going, this theory of the man-made.

But unfortunately I must say no.
Earthquakes are caused by continuous cooling and shrinking of the earth liquid core. When gaps are created between core and a plate, plates are supported by each other but eventually the weight is too much and the plate descends on the core. that is what causes earthquake and Tsunami.

There is some possibility that initial man-made shock could cause the plate to descend, But to figure out when to introduce the shock and where, is in my opinion beyond capability of man.

Judge blocks contentious Wisconsin union law
18.3.11

MADISON, Wis. – A Wisconsin judge issued a temporary restraining order Friday blocking the state's new and contentious collective bargaining law from taking effect, a measure that drew tens of thousands of protesters to the state Capitol and sent some Democrats fleeing to Illinois in an attempt to block a vote on it.

The judge's order is a major setback for new Republican Gov. Scott Walker and puts the future of the law in question.

Dane County Judge Maryann Sumi issued the order, which was requested by that county's District Attorney Ismael Ozanne, a Democrat. Ozanne filed a lawsuit contending that a legislative committee that broke a stalemate that had kept the law in limbo for weeks met without the 24-hour notice required by Wisconsin's open meetings law. The Republican-controlled Legislature passed the measure and Walker signed it last week.

Secretary of State Doug La Follette planned to publish the law on March 25, but the judge's order will prevent that from happening, at least for now.

Assistant Attorney General Steven Means said the state will appeal the ruling, but he didn't say when. Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie said in a statement that the governor was confident the bill would become law in the near future.

"This legislation is still working through the legal process," Werwie said.

A spokesman for Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald declined to comment, citing the ongoing legal fight.

Democrats were hopeful the ruling would lead to the undoing of the law.

RE: Japan - Whether fictional or real, all you need in a proven enormous unstable situation is a trigger.

And that trigger can be tiny compared to the catastrophic outcome.

Good example is an avalanche. A light small rock falling on the snow masses suffices.

To add fuel to all this speculation, could it be that a US carrier in the past year had been allowed into Tokyo Bay that was loaded with nuclear weapons, somehow planted these bombs in the harbor?

There is a highway ACROSS Tokyo bay, which is called something like "Tokyo Aqualine".
About 13 years ago, Tokyo Aqualine and many "artificial islands" were constructed.

One of the constructors was BECHTEL. And there have been a rumor among Japanese "truth seekers" since then that Bechtel might have done something wicked there.

So, I guess, the most suspicious guys are CIA agents in Bechtel, who disguised as engineers.

But there are also so many ships of special type in Tokyo bay. So, further examination is necessary.

Stuxnet found in Japan in October - Is Fukushima an unintended consequence of Israel's hacker attack against Bushehr? - 19.3.11

According to the security company, the virus is designed to target a German-made program often used in systems managing water, gas and oil pipelines. The program is used at public utilities around the world, including in Japan.

Here is a nightmare scenario for you.

1. Israel and the US create Stuxnet.

2. Stuxnet is deployed to wreck Iran's nuclear power station.

3. But Stuxnet escapes from its intended target and spreads across Asia!

4. As the above article documents, Stuxnet was in Japan last October, presumably still spreading and intended to wreck nuclear power plants.

5. Stuxnet targets the Siemens controller

6. Fukushima uses the Seimens controllers Stuxnet was designed interfere with!

So now the difficulty the Fukushima nuclear plant operators faced in recovering control over their runaway reactors takes on a darker significance. Remember that the first problem following the quake was that the automated shutdown systems failed to operate at some of the reactors, because pumps failed and valves would not open even while running on batteries; the very sorts of mischief Stuxnet supposedly was designed to cause at Iran's power station.

Did we all just get hacked to death by Israel?

Would anyone reading this in Japan please forward to the Fukushima managers.

Benjamin Fulford? He's Jewish but is he a zionist?

This from Wiki ( taken at face value, not gospel):

"Benjamin Fulford (born 1961) is a journalist of Canadian-Jewish descent living in Japan.

His fatherwho? was a Canadian ambassador, and his childhood was split between Ottawa and various Latin American countries. He claims to be the great-grandson of George Taylor Fulford1.

In the early 1980s he came to Japan to study at Sophia University. After receiving a B.A. from the University of British Columbia he returned to Japan in the mid-1980s to pursue a career in journalism. He worked in Japan as a correspondent for Knight Ridder, the International Financing Review, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun English edition, and the South China Morning Post before moving to Forbes magazine, where he was the Asian Bureau chief from 1998 to 2005.2 After leaving Forbes he wrote a series of books in Japanese. He conducted an interview with the reclusive David Rockefeller in November 2007. He naturalized to Japanese citizenship in 2007.

On July 14, 2009 the Tokyo District Court awarded American broadcast journalist Steven L. Herman more than Yen 1,700,000 (115K euro) in the civil libel case brought against Fulford and his publisher (Herman vs. Fulford, Fusosha & M. Katagiri).3

He has claimed amongst others that:

* AIDS and SARS are bio-engineered weapons designed to reduce the African ("Black") and Asian populations. AIDS was created to reduce the African population, and SARS was meant to reduce the Asian populations of the world.4
* A Chinese secret society with a membership of 6 million (intellectuals like professors in various fields, scientists, politicians, etc.), this includes 1.8 million gangsters, and 100,000 professional assassins has issued an ultimatum to the Illuminati, warning them that if they persist with their plan to depopulate the earth, they will be killed. The society has created an alliance joining China, Russia, India, South America, ASEAN, the free Muslim nations and Africa that is united in stopping the Illuminati.5
* The 9/11 terrorist attacks were an "inside job" carried out by the US government as a false flag attack to bring about new imperial mobilization.
* The Pentagon, the oil industry, banking elite, and the pharmaceutical industry suppress inventions including free-energy and anti-gravity technology to maintain power.

* Since 2009, Fulford has stated that the US government, using a secret military program known as HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) has been altering the climate, and using high power microwave energy inducing earthquakes including the Asian Tsunami (2004) and earthquakes in Japan (1995), China (2008), Haiti (2010), Chile (2010), New Zealand (2011), Japan (2011).

Seems to me that the zionists don't like him very much.

- From Fulford's mouth.

Given my previous posts on this thread, this video from 3 years ago is verrrry interesting!!!

Benjamin Fulford's latest analysis:

In his view, this is USAns' "major strategic defeat." I hope so, but am not so sure now.

**************
US troops and occupation forces flee Japan, their lackeys flee Tokyo

The United States occupation forces in Japan are staging a major strategic defeat because they know the Japanese defense establishment knows it was elements of the US military that set off the March 11, (311) tsunami attack against Japan. This attack used nuclear weapons drilled into the seabed by submarines and not HAARP according to senior Pentagon Sources. In addition, four months ago they overruled Japanese authorities and placed deadly plutonium into the number 3 reactor at Fukushima, according to the governor of Fukushima prefecture. This was to provide a nuclear cover story for the seabed atomic attack, pentagon sources say. Needless to say, the ring-leaders of this attack are now in hiding and know they will be found.

Radiation found in Tokyo tap water as fight for nuclear plant continues
Reykjavik is first European city to detect particles from Japan
Official death toll tops 9,400 with 13,000 people still missing
U.S. halts food imports from affected areas of Japan
Now 'costliest natural disaster' in history with estimates at £190billion

Tokyo's tap water has been deemed 'unfit for babies' after radiation from the stricken Japanese nuclear power plant contaminated the Japanese water supply, officials have warned.

The warning comes after it emerged last night that radioactive particles have reached Europe and are heading towards Britain in the wake of the catastrophe that officials say could cost up to £190billion - making it the costliest natural disaster in history.

And fresh safety concerns arose today as black smoke was spotted emerging from Unit 3 of the plant, prompting a temporary evacuation of all workers from the complex, operators Tokyo Electric Power company said.

Water spray: Workers at Fukushima yesterday try to cool the plant

Tokyo Water Bureau officials said levels of radioactive iodine in some city tap water contained 210 becquerels per litre of iodine 131 - two times the recommended limit for infants.

They warned parents not to give babies tap water, although they said it is not an immediate health risk for adults.

Nearly two weeks after the twin March 11 disasters, nuclear officials were still struggling to stabilise the damaged and overheated Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant, which has been leaking radiation since the disasters knocked out the plant's cooling systems.

Dangerous breach suspected at Japanese nuke plant (AP)- 25.3.11

The fall of the Portuguese government prompted Standard & Poor's to downgrade Portugal's credit ratings by two notches to BBB on Friday and warned it could cut it again by one notch as early as next week depending on the final shape of the euro zone bailout fund.

S&P, which followed a two-notch cut by Fitch on Thursday, said the collapse of Portugal's government has increased political uncertainty, hurting market confidence and potentially raising refinancing risk.

Fitch cut Portugal's credit rating to A-, saying risks to the country's financing had risen after parliament failed to pass fiscal consolidation measures. It warned further downgrades were likely in the absence of a "timely and credible" EU/IMF support programme.

I am happy to find your post. There are only a few who think like that. Western media are so hysteric that, it seems to me, they are intentionally trying to create a panic in Tokyo.
Even alternative media like rense.com etc. are completely deceived, too.

Remember that some researchers say micro-nukes were used in Bali (2002) and Beirut(2005)? (and Israel's involvement was very likely.)

I even suspect that explosions in Fukushima nuke plant were caused by similar micro-nukes. The radiation at Fukushima plant might come from those micro-nukes. Recall that an Israeli company, Magna,was in charge of maintaining the "security system" of the power plant

Did you see Japanese troops and firefighters pour water in reactors? Many criticized it because reactors are so big and hence pouring such amount of water seems meaningless. It's much more important to recover electricity of the failed cooling system first.

But, remember that after 911 they poured water for THREE MONTHS at what had been WTC. The main aim was supposed to be washing away tritium which was created by pure hydrogen bombs.

Everything smells.

Is the Japanese government trying to genocide its own people? The thought is so monstrous, specially in the cultural context of Japan, the mind simply boggles.

GEAB N°53 is available! Global systemic crisis: Second half of 2011 – Get ready for the meltdown of the US Treasury Bond market

Beyond its tragic human consequences, the terrible disaster that has just hit Japan weakens the shaky US Treasury Bond market a little more. In the GEAB No. 52, our team had already explained how the sequence of Arab revolutions, this fall of the “petro-dollar” wall, would translate during 2011 into the cessation of the massive purchases of US Treasury Bonds by the Gulf States. In this issue, we anticipate that the sudden shock experienced by the Japanese economy will lead not only to the halt in US T-Bond purchases by Japan, but it will force the authorities in Tokyo to make substantial sales of a significant portion of their US Treasury Bond reserves to finance the enormous cost of stabilization, reconstruction and revival of the Japanese economy.

With Japan and the Gulf States alone accounting for 25% of the total 4.4 trillion USD of US federal debt (December 2010), LEAP/E2020 believes that this new situation which is asserting itself during the first quarter of 2011, against a background of China’s increasing reluctance (holding 20% of US Treasury Bonds) to continue to invest in US government debt, carries the seeds for the collapse of the US Treasury Bond market in the second half of 2011, a market that now has only a single buyer: the US Federal Reserve.

It is certain that the context of the crisis of US local authority securities (Munis) and European government debt (the entire periphery of the EU, including the United Kingdom) that our team anticipated for this timeframe (see GEAB N°50 ), will only exacerbate the event. Moreover, it is highly significant that PIMCO the world’s largest bond fund manager decided, at the end of February 2011, to liquidate its US Treasury Bond holdings. And that was before the disaster in Japan!

Stricken Portugal 'lacks the cash to meet debt payments'

But Portugal insisted it could cope with looming debt repayments, after analysts warned it does not have enough money to meet its obligations.

Debt-heavy Portugal's hopes of avoiding a financial bailout were fading fast Wednesday as the country's borrowing rates continued their upward spiral to hit new euro-era highs.

The debt-laden nation faces around €9bn (£7.9bn) in bond redemptions by June, but currently has no more than €5bn in cash, analysts at Barclays Capital estimated.

"Portugal needs to find financing in the coming weeks in some way," they said, suggesting credit lines or some sort of bridge loan. "In our opinion, Portugal is likely to find financing, but it is not in a comfortable position."

Portugal denied that it could not afford to pay off its debt.

Carlos Costa Pina, the country's treasury secretary, told Bloomberg: "Portugal has conditions to face up to the debt redemption commitments scheduled for 2011, especially the redemptions of long-term debt that will take place in April and June."

However, Portugal's 10-year bonds are trading with yields at euro-era highs of over 8pc, as investors demand more reward for taking on the risk.

European Central Bank Set to Raise Interest Rates Before Fed - March 31, 2011

After following the Federal Reserve’s lead for over a decade, the European Central Bank is poised to launch a series of interest rate hikes before the U.S. central bank for the first time in the ECB’s history.

The change from the traditional pattern reflects the ECB’s greater preoccupation with inflation pressures, as well as its higher level of discomfort with the emergency bond-buying programmes run by central banks.

But the “decoupling” of ECB and Fed policies is also the result of an historic shift in the global economy: the increased influence that Asia, rather than the United States, is having on the euro zone’s economy.

Thanks R.H. From us to you simply: Japan is never far from our thoughts and we know the country is going to make it and come out even stronger and better than before.

I've just finished listening to the 5 Fulford videos as per R.H.'s link. Fascinating stuff, all of it and if even only a fraction of it is true, there is much hope for all of us that a new era might be dawning for the entire world: rebuilding instead of just plain destruction and sheer msasacre.

EU Secretly Authorizes Emergency Order Allowing Large Increase Of Radiation In Food - 3.2.11

Kopp Online, Xander News and other non-English news agencies are reporting that the EU implemented a secret “emergency” order without informing the public which increases ed the amount of radiation in food by up to 20 times previous food standards.

According to EU bylaws radiation limits may be raised during a nuclear emergency to prevent food shortages, but there is anger across Europe. Foodwatch is quoted “These rules now to bring into force is absurd, because in Europe there are no nuclear emergency, and certainly no shortage of food”.

Somebody analyzed the seismic wave of the 311 earthquake.
The wave looks very unnatural and resembles those created by nuclear tests.
(Notice the sudden big spike in the beginning.)

Conclusion: This earthquake was man-made.

Here is a link. If you are convinced, please help us spread information.
We are probably in "war," because it seems they are still trying to create a social panic in Tokyo.

RH, Have posted your comment elsewhere as well. Except that I being wondering whether it makes any sense at all. If Japan is "in war", then the people behind it are no others than the West. Asking them to take notice of what is happening is like asking an attacker to ask forgiveness from the attacked. West sheeple are interested in one thing and one thing alone: their own wallets. Not another thing otherwise, no offence intended towards the restricted circle of the wise in the west.

The 3/11 Attack and the ongoing World Environmental War

Yes, the Japanese earthquake was a geo-political earthquake. The Rothschilds want the Japanese and the Chinese to support the dollar. Manmade earthquakes are quite different from natural earthquakes, notably because of ionospheric disturbance. The first such earthquake that was detected was in 1964 in Alaska of course (which is where HAARP was subsequently set up in plain sight in February 1992). This was followed by an attack on Tashkent in the former Soviet Union in 1966. What should worry us more is the fact that the whole 2012 fantasy is a massive and very successful psy-op which is aimed at providing a cover for a World Environmental War that is already well under way; aimed at terminal global economic disruption and Kissinger's long awaited massive reduction in world population - in case anybody hadn't noticed. Evelyn de Rothschild is finally getting his act together after the 9/11 farce and the Iran fiasco. However, it is rather surprising that not one seismologist in the world has had the common sense to put two and two together and make four. Fachidioten! Evelyn is literally waging war on the whole world (except Israel) and getting away with it. Not bad for a kike with a girl's name! Meanwhile the SAS fucks about in Libya instead of moving in on Waddesdon Manor.

Various comments on the Japanese situation

- Just note
You can't create earthquakes but you can trigger ones that are going to happen anyway.

- Japan is allowed to build a dirty bomb...
...stop these nuclear stupidity in Japan. What are we waiting for? These nice Japanese people poison the planet.

- It's a US design
Blame America for the destruction of the northern hemisphere.

Expert Warns Terrorists Could Crash Planes by Remote Control at an airlines meeting - 4.4.11

Airplanes could be taken over by remote control and forced to crash with the use of newly invented computer software, according to an expert cited by The Courier-Mail on Monday.

Like the World Trade Towers?

Feedback for RH:

- You guys are thinking Poseidon:

The Amerikkkans have no such a weapon. The only ones able to provoke earthquakes are the ancient Greek gods, and Jeeeeeeehova. The Untied Snakes has nothing to win with the Japanese crisis. Whole Japanese industrial cities are going to be moved to China and China will only win financial and industrial power in Asia. With the nuclear reactors failing, the whole world is entering a very dangerous era in which the only source of energy is oil and oil is running out. The Amerikkkans might be retarded, war criminals and all you want or need, but they wont do something that so clearly would play against them.

- One of the above bloggers was spot on:

You are right. We the people are just too feeble-minded to grasp the significance of evil as it is practised against us. It is too simple and too complex at the same time. We suspect these natural disasters and man-made revolutions and false-flags to be somehow related but fail to realise the truth. We can't connect the dots. So much has happened over the last few months and years that we are in mental over-load. That was McArthur's "excuse" in not reacting to the near-simultaneous Japanese attacks in Hawaii and the Philippines. And as a result he let Clark Field be bombed with little resistance. Maybe he let it happen as part of the plan? Only a couple of kittyhawks got off the ground. OK we've got it now. It's clear. They are making arrangements to terminate a large number of us right here and now. The process has started. Once that is achieved the planet and all its riches is theirs. Who are they? No need to ask. It is all who hold power and wealth. The elites. Looking back I suspect they had most everyone on board some 12-15 years ago. The political newcomers are already groomed, that is why they make the same noises no matter which country they are from. It probably took place at a select gathering on some private estate not at a Bilderburg conference. Who are the remaining standouts? The non-aligned nations? Maybe. But not all. If you can think of the worst thing that can happen from here on you are probably understating things. As Oliver said to Stan "that's another nice mess you've gotten us into".

- What a stupid article.

Another Illuminati Production? because if it is the Illuminati don't want to inhabit the northern hemisphere for the next 400 years.

So the The Rothschilds want the Japanese and the Chinese to support the dollar??
So they destroy Japan and force the Japanese to draw back their investments from all round the world to rebuild their nation?
That crushed the US$.

Japan is now a dead island and so is every country in the northern hemisphere.
2/3rds of the world population is now dead looking for the time and place for it to happen.

The shit that has gone up into the atmosphere is raining down all over America, ya think America would set off a blast to do that?

Syrian the only reason I'd agree with you here is because it was an American company who built this disaster looking for a place to happen.

People are grasping at paranoia here and this stupid post is drawing out the worst.


- Dear bloggers, listen for once:

Japanese dissidents living in Japan have provided us with such news for whatever it's worth with a request we acquaint the west with the facts. If for no other reason, then out of sheer respect for their plight, they deserve to be given a halfway polite hearing. Did anyone turn round and say: Serve them right when Christchurch was hit?

I just want to point out one small matter: The West are screaming their heads off about radiation and God alone knows what else. I'm more impressed by the fact that Japsn's closer neighbours, China and Russia, have so far failed to pick up any over-alarming radiation figures in their own countries. How come? Everything about the Japanese tragedy sounds extraordinary to my ears.
