BYOG: Bring Your Own Geiger counter and Hazmat gear


By Christina Consolo host of Nuked Radio
It has been 6 weeks since I wrote my first piece for End the Lie about the potential Fukushima reactor number four end of the world scenario. Numerous nuclear experts, ambassadors, former Fukushima Daiichi workers, and senator Ron Wyden of Oregon have warned about as well. And still, no progress to report.
If TEPCO looked at what we learned from the example of Chernobyl, they should have had hundreds if not thousands of workers fortifying the structure and removing the spent fuel 24/7 for the past 14 months. But no, there does not seem to be any sense of urgency whatsoever.
Editor’s note: as I previously reported, TEPCO will not even start moving the spent fuel rods from this endangered pool into a joint pool for all six reactors next to the crumbling reactor four building until late next year. I would love to know why exactly this is the case but unfortunately I have yet to receive any explanation whatsoever.
Even the UN received an urgent request to enact international help from numerous nuke experts, since the demise of reactor four would have global effects. But still, nothing.

It has been difficult, if not nearly impossible, to get people to realize the extent of Fukushima and its effect on our lives. Part of that reason is because radiation is invisible. Another reason is because the media isn’t talking about it.

Bilderbergers commit a felony

International lawmakers and other world figureheads are deep in discussion near Washington, DC this week at the 2012 Bilderberg Conference. But are members of the exclusive group breaking US law while meeting off the record?
Little is known about what happened at past Bilderberg meetings, let alone this year’s conference near the nation’s capital in Chantilly, Virginia. Over the years, however, some journalists and rogue reporters have either infiltrated the event or learned from insiders about the goings-on of the elusive meeting of the minds. With reports circulating that some of the planet’s most important decisions being birthed at Bilderberg, it isn’t farfetched that maneuvers involving international policy are being put in place this week where people like US Senator John Kerry and World Bank Group President Robert Zoellick are on the guest-list. If that’s indeed the case, though, several American officials could be breaking a long-standing federal law that prohibits exactly that behavior.
Under the Logan Act, a US law passed during the infancy of the country by President John Adams, American citizens cannot negotiate with foreign officials without the authorization of the country. According to the text of the Logan Act of 1799, “Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”

Olympic battle: Londoners against normalisation of the Police State will form human shield to keep missiles from homes

Residents in east London have threatened to form human barricades to prevent missiles being installed on the rooftops of their homes for the Olympic Games.
Six sites in east London have been earmarked for the deployment of Rapier and Starstreak missiles, each with a range of over three miles and capable of travelling at three times the speed of sound.
During the Olympics, London will have more soldiers on the streets than at any time since the Second World War and that there will be more armed personnel patrolling the capital than the entire number of British troops serving  in Afghanistan.  This amounts to far more security than was in place at the Beijing Olympics.
Critics claim there has been a militarization of London in the run up to the games. Inhabitants of an upmarket gated development in the upmarket Bow Quarter, announced at the meeting on Thursday night that they would do everything in their power to stop the deployment of the missiles.

The Fed Is Playing With Fire

by 
Dear CIGAs,

QE to infinity is for certain. About that there is no question whatsoever. It cannot be avoided.
Operation twist is a damn joke stimulation wise. At this point in time it is a dark joke.
The Fed is playing with something worse than fire. That fire is posted in a video today on www.jsmineset.com. This video references a worldwide financial crisis that if it starts cannot be stopped by any power on the planet.
They are already easing up on the rhetoric. The Fed will downright panic as the world’s economies go from slow to dropping out of sight. That is what is on the plate tonight, this night, right here and now.
Safety only exists in gold bullion and in the outrageously depressed good gold shares now shorted out of sight.

Occupy Europe: the euro collapse is a Goldman Sachs scheme to bag EU banks for a song

Gary Cohn, president and chief operating officer of the Wall Street financial institution Goldman Sachs, has let the cat out of the bag.
Even as more than $100 billion flees Spain in a little more than 48 hours, Cohn chimed in to admit that he’s ready to pitch on the expected distressed asset sales by scores of European banks that may reach as much as $2 trillion over the next few years. Some might rightly call this a “fire sale.”
Cohn says Goldman Sachs is “well placed” to exploit the anticipated fire sale by sick European banks. You bet.
The sell-off will mainly take the form of soured loans in the real estate sector, which of course brings us straight back to the bursting of the real estate bubble in the US, which kicked off the on-going global crisis.
There are two ways to understand this statement.
Either Cohn is just looking around for bargains, like any smart businessman, or his firm was involved in deliberate and intentional efforts to collapse the European banking system, which it could then pick up for a song. I prefer the latter explanation.

Tell The UN To Keep Its Hands Off The People's Internet


from the the-internet-belongs-to-us dept - By Mike Masnick:

Back in February, we wrote up a warning to "the internet as we know it" as the UN's International Telecommunications Union (ITU) was looking to take over control of the internet, mainly at the behest of countries like Russia and China who were seeking a "more controlled" internet, rather than the very open internet we have today. The major concern was that almost no one in the US seemed to care about this or be paying much attention to it. The February call to action may not have done much, but the situation has certainly changed in the last couple of weeks.

Last week, the father of the internet, Vint Cerf, once again raised the alarm in both a NY Times op-ed and in a keynote speech at the Freedom to Connect (F2C) conference:
His concerns echo the ones we've been hearing for months. This move is about giving some countries much greater control over the internet:

Lew Rockwell on Crooked Elections, Crooked Markets, and Crooked Numbers

The Dow has wiped out its gains for the year. European stock markets in the meanwhile have been on a steady decline sincemid-March of this year, with markets in Greece, Spain, and Italy already having broken through their 2009 lows and French markets very close to breaking new ground as well.

Meanwhile, the latest slew of data, not just in the US, but around the world is pointing to a global slowdown. This is particularly alarming, as the global economy has been on life support, with central banks the world over throwing everything PLUS the kitchen sink at financial markets with negative real interest rates, quantitative easing and fiscal stimulus. What exactly is left for them to do? Buy stocks???
