Neurosurgeon Shows How Low Levels of Radiation Such As Wi-Fi, Smart Meters And Cell Phones Cause The Blood Brain Barrier To Leak

By MARCO TORRES: Neurosurgeon and researcher Dr. Leif Salford has conducted many studies on radio frequency radiation and its effects on the brain. Dr. Salford called the potential implications of some of his research "terrifying." Some of the most concerning conclusions result from the fact that the weakest exposure levels to wireless radiation caused the greatest effect in causing the blood brain barrier to leak.

Since he began his line of research in 1988, Dr. Leif Salford and his colleagues at Lund University Hospital in Sweden has exposed over 1,600 experimental animals to low-level radiation. Their results were consistent and worrisome: radiation, including that from cell phones, caused the blood-brain barrier--the brain's first line of
defense against infections and toxic chemicals--to leak.

Researchers in 13 other laboratories in 6 different countries had reported the same effect, but no one had proven whether it would lead to any damage in the long term. In a study published June 2003 in Environmental Health Perspectives, Salford's team repeated the experiment on 32 additional animals, but this time waited eight weeks before sacrificing them and examining their brains. In those animals that had been exposed to a cell phone, up to two percent of the neurons in all areas of the brain were shrunken and degenerated.
Salford, chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery at his institution, called the potential implications "terrifying."

The Inevitable Decline of Retail - Charles Hugh Smith

Online shopping is rippling through the economy, affecting not just retail but energy consumption and the job market.

Correspondent Marc A. responded to my recent entry Is Anybody Else Tired of Buying and Owning Stuff? (September 7, 2012) with an informed commentary on how online shopping is affecting the retail sector. The Web and online shopping is rippling through the economy, affecting not just retail but energy consumption and the job market.
Is anyone else sick of the "buying experience"? No wonder online buying has become so ubiquitous--the experience of shopping to acquire stuff is a form of torture, at least to some of us. Getting there is a nightmare (unless I can bike to the store), parking is a hassle, clerks generally don't know much, and the selection is often limited or skewed to the high end. The "fun" is in leaving empty-handed. Is Anybody Else Tired of Buying and Owning Stuff? (September 7, 2012)
Here is Marc's commentary:

"Yes, online shopping has much room for growth. Given three days the "Brown Truck Store" has an infinite breadth and depth of inventory. A good example are the $39.95 Asic Gel running shoes I'm ordering from an eBay vendor. "Free shipping". They have my size and are much cheaper than local shoe stores which are also often 'out' of my preferred size and style. I can wait four days. And it's infinitely cheaper in terms of fuel and energy for one Brown Truck Store to deliver to 600 consumers a day than it is for these 600 consumers to sally forth in 600 vehicles to local stores that are more expensive and aren't nearly as well-stocked. Once delivery densities in neighborhoods grow large enough UPS and FedEx will add additional men to trot the packages up to doors while the truck rolls slowly down the street. They do this at Christmas time already. Soon it will be standard. But this is only an interim solution.

A Rare Look at Why The Government Won't Fight Wall Street - Talibblog

Matt Taibbi: The great mystery story in American politics these days is why, over the course of two presidential administrations (one from each party), there’s been no serious federal criminal investigation of Wall Street during a period of what appears to be epic corruption. People on the outside have speculated and come up with dozens of possible reasons, some plausible, some tending toward the conspiratorial – but there have been very few who've come at the issue from the inside.
We get one of those rare inside accounts in The Payoff: Why Wall Street Always Wins, a new book by Jeff Connaughton, the former aide to Senators Ted Kaufman and Joe Biden. Jeff is well known to reporters like me; during a period when most government officials double-talked or downplayed the Wall Street corruption problem, Jeff was one of the few voices on the Hill who always talked about the subject with appropriate alarm. He shared this quality with his boss Kaufman, the Delaware Senator who took over Biden's seat and instantly became an irritating (to Wall Street) political force by announcing he wasn’t going to run for re-election. "I later learned from reporters that Wall Street was frustrated that they couldn’t find a way to harness Ted or pull in his reins," Jeff writes. "There was no obvious way to pressure Ted because he wasn’t running for re-election."
Kaufman for some time was a go-to guy in the Senate for reform activists and reporters who wanted to find out what was really going on with corruption issues. He was a leader in a number of areas, attempting to push through (often simple) fixes to issues like high-frequency trading (his advocacy here looked prescient after the "flash crash" of 2010), naked short-selling, and, perhaps most importantly, the Too-Big-To-Fail issue. What’s fascinating about Connaughton’s book is that we now get to hear a behind-the-scenes account of who exactly was knocking down simple reform ideas, how they were knocked down, and in some cases we even find out why good ideas were rejected, although some element of mystery certainly remains here.

The mainstream media merry-go-round

End the Lie: This information may be old news to the folks that visit End the Lie and other sites like it, but the majority of the public still gets their news from the mass media, especially television, and they aren’t aware of the simple facts outlined in this article.  Maybe you can pass this along to someone you know who is still trapped on the mass media’s merry-go-round.
People don’t realize that when they are tuned into the mainstream media they are connected to “the man” and the “powers that be” – that is, big oil, big pharma, big banks, big government, and the like – because those are the groups that oversee and support the mainstream media.
The mass media outlets are the persuasion arms and sales forces of those groups and they always have been, in a manner somewhat similar to the establishment political machine.
The mainstream media outlets are extremely costly to own and operate so the owners and operators are all cut from the same cloth – the ultra wealthy.  Multi-millionaires and billionaires.  The ruling class.
The ruling class is rarely mentioned in the U.S. but it exists in every country and is made up of a very small percentage of the populace. This ruling class has most of the money and political influence.
Walter Cronkite on the Ruling Class (38 seconds)
The mass media are the voices of that ruling class – the wealthy establishment – and any viewpoints they consider to not be in their best interests will be omitted, or if mentioned at all, belittled.  Only information that is profitable to the ruling class gets into the mass media.
Bill Moyers sums it up very well:
The biggest difference between the Russians and Americans was that Russians recognized that the ‘Party Line’ was propaganda from the ruling elite, and Americans who receive the ‘Mainstream Press’ fail to recognize it as ‘propaganda from the ruling elite’ and mistake it for ‘reality.’” – Bill Moyers, American journalist and commentator.

DHS "Arming to The Teeth" for Massive Civil Unrest

By Paul Joseph Watson: Following controversy over its purchase of around 1.2 billion bullets in the last six months alone, the Department of Homeland Security has put out a new solicitation for over 200 million more rounds of ammunition, some of which are designated to be used by snipers.
A series of new solicitations posted on the Fed3BizOpps website show that the DHS is looking to purchase 200 million rounds of .223 rifle ammunition over the next four years, as well as 176,000 rounds of .308 caliber 168 grain hollow point boat tail (HPBT) rounds in addition to 25,000 rounds of blank .308 caliber bullets.
As James Smith over at the Prepper Podcast website highlights, "It is the type of ammunition and not necessarily the quantity that is troubling."

Tungsten-Filled 10 Oz Gold Bar Found In The Middle Of Manhattan's Jewelry District - Yet another 'False Flag' attempt to discredit gold?

Tyler Durden's picture It is one thing for tungsten-filled gold bars to appear in the UK, or in Germany: after all out of sight, and across the Atlantic, certainly must mean out of mind, and out of the safe. However, when a 10 ounce 999.9 gold bar bearing the stamp of the reputable Swiss Produits Artistiques Métaux Précieux (PAMP, with owner MTP) and a serial number (serial #038892, likely rehypothecated in at least 10 gold ETFs across the world but that's a different story), mysteriously emerges in the heart of the world's jewerly district located on 47th street in Manhattan, things get real quick. Moments ago, Myfoxny reported that a 10-ounce gold bar costing nearly $18,000 turned out to be a counterfeit. The discovery was made by the dealer Ibrahim Fadl, who bought the PAMP bar in question from a merchant who has sold him real gold before. "But he heard counterfeit gold bars were going around, so he drilled into several of his gold bars worth $100,000 and saw gray tungsten -- not gold. The bar was filled with tungsten, which weighs nearly the same as gold but costs just over a dollar an ounce."
What makes so devious is a real gold bar is purchased with the serial numbers and papers, then it is hollowed out, the gold is sold, the tungsten is put in, then the bar is closed up. That is a sophisticated operation.

MTB, the Swiss manufacturer of the gold bars, said customers should only buy from a reputable merchant. The problem, he admits, is Ibrahim Fadl is a very reputable merchant.

Raymond Nessim, CEO Manfra, Tordell & Brookes, said he has reported the situation to the FBI and Secret Service.

The Secret Service, which deals with counterfeits, said it is investigating.
And cue panic on the realization that virtually any gold bar in the world, not just those in Europe and Australia, which have already had close encounters with Tungsten substitutes, but also New York may be hollowed out and have a real worth of a few dollars max.

JP Morgan Upgrades Taser Forecast, Goes Longer The Police State

JPMorgan-Chase-medSV: JP Morgan just went a bit longer the police state. An analyst at the biggest US bank raised his rating for Taser International Inc., the maker of electronic-shock devices causing a stir in the streets regarding their humaneness, from “Neutral” to “Overweight,” arguing that the company’s profits will continue to rise due to stabilizing demand in the face of an exasperated populace feeling the burn of the largest wealth confiscation in history sparked by the banking crisis.
One reason for the stabilization of demand is that local governments are beginning to upgrade the devices utilized by police departments and other thugs of the government.  Recently, Taser International recently publicized two orders from agencies in California and Florida which amounted to $850,000. What do these two states have in common? They both have suffered in immensely in the economic crisis. While California boasts an unemployment rate of over 25%, Florida’s is around 20% when the numbers are not obfuscated by government intervention in reality.

JP Morgan understands the importance of a well-oiled police state in the US considering that it has more than 11 state, national and international agencies pursuing the bank regarding its disregard for law.  From money laundering, interest rate manipulation, silver manipulation, fraud against borrowers, the bank has reason for concern.
