IS THE END NEAR – from the SUN



Getting Ready for the Next Big Solar Storm

June 21, 2011: In Sept. 1859, on the eve of a below-average1 solar cycle, the sun unleashed one of the most powerful storms in centuries. The underlying flare was so unusual, researchers still aren't sure how to categorize it.  The blast peppered Earth with the most energetic protons in half-a-millennium, induced electrical currents that set telegraph offices on fire, and sparked Northern Lights over Cuba and Hawaii.

This week, officials have gathered at the National Press Club in Washington DC to ask themselves a simple question: What if it happens again?

"A similar storm today might knock us for a loop," says Lika Guhathakurta, a solar physicist at NASA headquarters. "Modern society depends on high-tech systems such as smart power grids, GPS, and satellite communications–all of which are vulnerable to solar storms."

She and more than a hundred others are attending the fifth annual Space Weather Enterprise Forum—"SWEF" for short.  The purpose of SWEF is to raise awareness of space weather and its effects on society especially among policy makers and emergency responders.  Attendees come from the US Congress, FEMA, power companies, the United Nations, NASA, NOAA and more.

As 2011 unfolds, the sun is once again on the eve of a below-average solar cycle—at least that’s what forecasters are saying.  The "Carrington event" of 1859 (named after astronomer Richard Carrington, who witnessed the instigating flare) reminds us that strong storms can occur even when the underlying cycle is nominally weak.  

In 1859 the worst-case scenario was a day or two without telegraph messages and a lot of puzzled sky watchers on tropical islands.

In 2011 the situation would be more serious. An avalanche of blackouts carried across continents by long-distance power lines could last for weeks to months as engineers struggle to repair damaged transformers. Planes and ships couldn’t trust GPS units for navigation.  Banking and financial networks might go offline, disrupting commerce in a way unique to the Information Age.  According to a 2008 report from the National Academy of Sciences, a century-class solar storm could have the economic impact of 20 hurricane Katrinas.

As policy makers meet to learn about this menace, NASA researchers a few miles away are actually doing something about it:

"We can now track the progress of solar storms in 3 dimensions as the storms bear down on Earth," says Michael Hesse, chief of the GSFC Space Weather Lab and a speaker at the forum.  "This sets the stage for actionable space weather alerts that could preserve power grids and other high-tech assets during extreme periods of solar activity."

DN!: Sandra Steingraber on the Health Crisis Surrounding Natural Gas Extraction

Pamela has sent you a story from Democracy Now!, a daily independent radio and TV news program:

About 30 states allow hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” the natural gas drilling process that injects millions of gallons of water, sand and chemicals deep into the earth in order to break up shale rock and release natural gas. New York has imposed a partial moratorium on the drilling process pending the outcome of an environmental impact study this July. Yesterday, New York state lawmakers held a hearing on the health impacts of fracking, an issue that until now has received little media attention. We talk with Sandra Steingraber, a biologist who testified at the hearing. She is author of Raising Elijah: Protecting Children in an Age of Environmental Crisis. [includes rush transcript]

Radiation from Japan an Accident & Act of God

But after WW2  – this was deliberate!

State-Sponsored Child Abuse.



The following was sent to me by a friend. It was put out by Casey Research. There is an email address for them at the bottom. One of the problems of convincing people who are still skeptical about how widespread psychiatric abuse is is that, being decent and honest people themselves, they cannot imagine that people of pure evil exist in the world. Not all people who are pure evil are psychiatrists, but the fake profession of psychiatry sure has more than its fair share of these spiritual goons

State-Sponsored Child Abuse

Of course you have heard of the Nazi Angel of Death, Dr. Josef Mengele, who became infamous for conducting grueling medical experiments on concentration camp inmates during WWII. Some of his victims were children. He tested unsafe drugs on them, injected them with lethal germs, removed their organs and limbs and performed sex change operations on them. His primary interest were identical twins. 

Thank goodness something like that could never happen here. Or could it?

While the U.S. mainstream media eagerly report on every new case of child molestation, abuse, kidnapping, or murder, they’re strangely silent about the many historical and not-so-historical cases of child abuse for scientific purposes, condoned and/or sponsored by modern, “civilized” governments.

Take the Canadian “Duplessis Orphans,” for starters. In the 1940s and ‘50s, between 1,500 and 20,000 (some say up to 50,000) children living in Catholic orphanages in Quebec were subject to severe abuse. Practically overnight and without good reason, perfectly healthy children were declared mentally ill or retarded and entire orphanages were converted into psychiatric wards.

The reason, as reported in the Gazette in 2002: “Between 1945 and 1960, the federal government paid out 70 cents a day per orphan to orphanages. Psychiatric hospitals received a subsidy of $2.25 per day, per patient.” 

Hervé Bertrand, one of the victims, remembers how a doctor visited his third-grade class and asked him what the word “compare” meant. “I didn't know,” remembers Bertrand. “We hadn't studied it yet. That's how it was decided that I was retarded.” A lifelong sentence for most of the kids involved.

Surviving victims allege that some of the children underwent painful experiments, electroshock treatments, even lobotomies. Most were pulled from their schools and forced into farm labor or hospital maintenance and brutally beaten for non-compliance. Many were physically and sexually abused by the Catholic priests, nuns and administrators. Some died of their injuries.

The Duplessis scandal was revealed when a 1961 commission on Quebec’s psychiatric hospitals found that more than 30% of the 22,000 patients didn’t belong there, most of the falsely diagnosed being illegitimate children. (Not all of the children were actual orphans; many were born out of wedlock.) The survivors named themselves Duplessis Orphans after the iron-fisted Quebec Premier under whose reign their plight occurred. [For detailed CBC footage on the topic, click here.] 

Around the same time, something happened in the Middle East that the Israel Insider magazine calls “the ugliest secret of Israel’s Labor Party founders.” Others call it the “Sephardi Holocaust.”

In 1951, allegedly with the assistance of the U.S. Army, about 100,000 Sephardi children—Sephardim are Jewish-Arab immigrants—were used as guinea pigs in a mass radiation experiment. To avoid suspicion by the parents, the mostly Moroccan children were taken on “school trips” where they received a radiation treatment, purportedly for ringworm infection.

“Every Sephardi child was to be given 35,000 times the maximum dose of x-rays through his head,” states the Israel Insider. “For doing so, the American government paid the Israeli government 300 million Israeli liras a year. . . equivalent to billions of dollars today.”

Could it all have been a misunderstanding? Could it be that the “medical establishment thought ringworm was a grave danger to public health,” as the review of the award-winning movie “Ringworm Children” suggests? We doubt it. In the 1950s in Israel, the permitted maximum x-ray dose was 0.5 rad. The Sephardi children received 350 rad, directly to their heads. No lead aprons were given to them. And eyewitnesses suspiciously noted that in preparation for the so-called “school trips,” all the Ashkenazi (Jews of European descent) were sorted out while “the dark children were put on the bus.”

The Ringworm experiment left its marks on the victims. Approximately 6,000 children died soon after treatment; the rest developed severe conditions such as various cancers, epilepsy, psychosis, etc. Today the survivors are broken people, and many of their children and grandchildren are stricken with genetic diseases and malignant tumors.

“The Ringworm Children” won a prize for Best Documentary at the 2005 Haifa International Film Festival. To buy a copy of the movie on DVD, click here.

Well, maybe the Israelis are capable of something like that, but our own government? Impossible.

But is it really? In fact, a host of questionable experiments have taken place in the United States… and probably still do. 

In 1946 and ’47, eighteen terminally ill patients—one of them a four-year-old boy—were injected with plutonium to see how the radioactive material would spread through the body. In some cases, the chemical was injected into the limbs, which were then amputated post mortem. The experiments were conducted by the University of California at San Francisco, the University of Rochester, the University of Chicago and Oak Ridge Laboratory.

In a long-term experiment by the University of Cincinnati that was finally stopped in 1971, “88 poor, uneducated and mostly African-American patients with incurable cancers were exposed to heavy doses of full-body irradiation—a procedure that was largely abandoned as therapy by the 1960s,” states an article from a March 1996 issue of Research/Penn State magazine. Some of the subjects died only hours after treatment.

Then there’s the testing in the ‘40s and ‘50s at the Fernald School in Waltham, MA. Sponsored by MIT and Quaker Oats, mentally retarded students were told that they were now “members of a science club” and fed cereal that contained radioactive calcium and iron. The goal was to trace mineral absorption from cereal in the body. The results were supposed to be used in an advertising campaign, giving Quaker Oats an edge over their competitor Cream of Wheat. Neither the students nor the parents knew about the radioactive content; parents were only told that the boys would receive a diet high in nutrients.

In the ‘50s and ‘60s, a team of researchers purposely infected mentally retarded 3- to 11-year-olds with hepatitis to be able to study the virus. “The early test subjects were fed extracts of the feces of an infected patient,” states constitutional attorney and author John W. Whitehead in a 2005 article on his websitewww.rutherford.org, while “later subjects were injected with the virus.” 

The head of the team, Dr. Saul Krugman, later became the chairman of pediatrics at New York University and won the Lasker Prize (the American equivalent of the Nobel Prize).

Also in the 1960s, the D.C. Children’s Center in Laurel, MD, administered the diet pill NeoBazine, “which contains thyroxin, a drug that causes tremors, nervousness, insomnia, and tachycardia” to mentally handicapped children. “The FDA later found that this drug was not safe for use.” 

From 1989 to 1991, Kaiser Permanente of Southern CA in conjunction with the CDC treated poor black and Latino children in Los Angeles with experimental measles vaccines. “The same vaccination was given to infants in Mexico, Haiti and Africa by the World Health Organization,” says Whitehead. “It was discontinued after a large number of those tested died.”

And those are “just” the incidents involving children, and those during or after WWII. We didn’t even get to the horrifying experiments performed on adults, like the testicular transplant trials performed on prisoners at St. Quentin’s from 1919-22, in which scientists inserted the testicles of executed inmates and goats into the abdomens and scrotums of living prisoners. 

Aside from mentally retarded children, prisoners have always been a preferred type of guinea pig for American medical researchers. In 1966, Professor Emeritus of Dermatology Albert Kligman, who applied highly toxic dioxin directly to the skin of U.S. prisoners, said to a reporter: “All I saw before me were acres of skin… It was an anthropoid colony… which wasn’t going anywhere… I was like a farmer seeing fertile field for the first time.”

Or, to speak with another American scientist, quoted by the British Medical Journal: “Criminals in our penitentiaries are fine experimental material—and much cheaper than chimpanzees.”

We also didn’t have room to talk about the thousands of U.S. soldiers that were unknowingly subjected to experiments with mustard gas and other chemical agents—by the very government they served. Not to mention the about 240 experiments between 1944 and 1961 in which, according to a 1993 Guardianarticle, “radiation was deliberately released into the atmosphere . . . in New Mexico, Utah, Washington state, and perhaps elsewhere.” 

Those are another story for another day.

Strong quakes again rock shaken New Zealand city

The Associated Press June 13, 2011, 9:08AM ET

Strong aftershocks rattled New Zealand's quake-devastated city of Christchurch again Monday, toppling one of the few buildings still standing downtown and sinking thousands of homes into darkness.

Bricks crashed down in the cordoned-off city center, where only workers have tread since it was devastated in February's major earthquake. About 200 people were there when the quakes struck Monday, and two were briefly trapped in a church. More than 40 people have been taken to hospitals with minor injuries from falling debris, the city council said.

Hope this George Osborne is no Relative of Mine


No matter how distant.. sure hope not..

— First venture out for Poor George Osborne* UK MP since this Yacht Incident

QuoNathaniel Rothschild, son of prominent British Jew Lord Jacob Rotschild, and a friend of media Zionist Rupert Murdoch, invites Jewish mobster from Russia, Oleg Deripaska – the man behind the "aluminium wars" – for secretive talks aboard Rothschild´s private yacht in Corfu. Talks that are held between the mafia-Jew Deripaska and the Labour-Jew Lord Peter Mandelson and David Cameron´s money-Jew Andrew Feldman, the Tory party chief executive, and George Osborne, the Tory Shadow Chancellor.

It is suspected Mandelson has helped out Deripaska with aluminium tarrifs when he was a EU commissioner and Deripaski was also to give funds to the Conservative Party.


Nathaniel´s father Jacob Rothschild already has shown his inclination to help his Jewish oligarch brethren and has cooperated with the criminal Jewish oligarch of Yukos in Russia, Mikhail Khodorkovsky. Jacob´s son now follows in the same vein…

Jacob Rothschild is chairman of Yad Hanadiv, the Rothschild foundation, which built and gave the Knesset government buildings and the Supreme Court to Israel, and chairs the Jewish Policy Research, dedicated to promoting issues affecting Jews worldwide.te/  continued:-
