Did the Dimona Dozen murder the Fukushima 50?.

Fukushima may in fact have been caused by an act of war under the cover of an environmental disaster.

New Decentralized Currency Stimulating Underground Barter Economy

"New grassroots cyber currency, the Bitcoin, may provide the perfect vehicle to operate outside the establishment economy and snub the all-powerful banking cartels -- it's decentralized, quasi-anonymous, and its supply is regulated by an algorithm to actually create deflation over time.

Eric Blair
Activist Post

The masses are beginning to understand that the greatest threat to human freedom is the international banking cartel and their debt-based monetary system. Together with governments, they squash any manifestation of a free marketplace and personal freedom. Between runaway money printing, corporate cartel control, subsidies and taxes, and regulations and fees; the free market is nothing more than an ideology -- for now.

As the "Too Big to Fail" private banks consolidate even further with the help of their central baking partners and government puppets, it would seem that they form an all-powerful cartel. They force us to use their monopoly money to pay for all necessary goods and services. They track every economic transaction to plunder as much manufactured taxes and fees as possible. Income taxes are extracted to prop up the debt-based system, the Wall Street casino, the domestic surveillance prison, and endless wars. And on top of that, the consumer is ravaged by increasing inflation. Indeed, the system smashes personal and economic freedom.

Incidentally, it seems the precise remedy to such a system would be decentralization of currency and banking, or functioning in an underground economy outside the system. There may be hope for accomplishing both with the new crypto-currency that is beginning to gain recognition, the Bitcoin. Can this decentralized barter currency free humanity from the grip of the slave masters and provide for a truly free-market economy?

First, what is a Bitcoin?

Silk Road: The Website With Every Illegal Drug Imaginable For Sale

This website does not promote the use of illegal drugs or websites that sell them, as there is no link or instructions found here, we're simply reporting its existence.

Gawker reports on your aunt’s new favorite website, if your aunt loves tar heroin:

Silk Road, a digital black market that sits just below most internet users’ purview, does resemble something from a cyberpunk novel. Through a combination of anonymity technology and a sophisticated user-feedback system, Silk Road makes buying and selling illegal drugs as easy as buying used electronics—and seemingly as safe. It’s Amazon—if Amazon sold mind-altering chemicals. 

Fighting Radiation Damage the Natural Way with Cannabis

Activist Post

Dr. Ben Whalley, middle, with Dr. Gary Stephens and Dr. Claire Williams at their secret cannabis farm near London. These researchers have discovered that three compounds found in cannabis leaves can help to reduce and control seizures in epilepsy. Dr. Whalley, who is leading the research at the department of pharmacy at the University of Reading, said tests in animals had shown the marijuana compounds effective at preventing seizures and convulsions while also having fewer side effects than existing epilepsy drugs.

Cannabinoids, the active components of marijuana, inhibit tumor growth in laboratory animals and also kill cancer cells. Their use in the case of childhood cancer is compassionate.
And lucky for us, cannabis is also an excellent treatment for radiation sickness and exposure.

Bitcoin becomes the world's largest supercomputer

According to Top500, the world's most powerful supercomputer Tianhe-1A peaks at, if I'm reading this correctly, 4701000 Gflops, or 4701 Tflops, or 4.701 Pflops.

Here are current Folding@Home stats:  9259 Tflops, or 9.259 Pflops

BOINC is 5380 Tflops, or 5.38 Pflops

And...  Bitcoin Watch shows the network hashrate at 53547 Tflops, or 53.547 Pflops.

Mideast Taps Western Tools to Curb Skype Rebellion

Editor's Note: And bound to be used in the Western world ...

When young dissidents in Egypt were organizing an election-monitoring project last fall, they discussed their plans over Skype, the popular Internet phone service, believing it to be secure.

But someone else was listening in-Egypt's security service.

An internal memo from the 'Electronic Penetration Department' even boasted it had intercepted one conversation in which an activist stressed the importance of using Skype 'because it cannot be penetrated online by any security device.'

Skype, which Microsoft Corp. is acquiring for $8.5 billion, is best known as a cheap way to make international phone calls. But the Luxembourg-based service also is the communications tool of choice for dissidents around the world because its powerful encryption technology evades traditional wiretaps.

Throughout the recent Middle East uprisings, protesters have used Skype for confidential video conferences, phone calls, instant messages and file exchanges. In Iran, opposition leaders and dissidents used Skype to plot strategy and organize a February protest. Skype also is a favorite among activists in Saudi Arabia and Vietnam, according to State Department cables released by WikiLeaks.

The 25 Rules of Disinformation
From Twenty-Five Ways To Suppress Truth: The Rules of Disinformation (Includes The 8 Traits of A Disinformationalist) by H. Michael Sweeney. These 25 rules are everywhere in media, from political debates, to television shows, to comments on a blog.
1. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. Regardless of what you know, don’t discuss it — especially if you are a public figure, news anchor, etc. If it’s not reported, it didn’t happen, and you never have to deal with the issues.

2. Become incredulous and indignant. Avoid discussing key issues and instead focus on side issues which can be used show the topic as being critical of some otherwise sacrosanct group or theme. This is also known as the “How dare you!” gambit.

Online free speech vs private ownership - Opinion - Al Jazeera English

Like most of the social media landscape, Facebook and Twitter are private companies which ultimately decide what content can be posted on their websites [GALLO/GETTY]

Free expression, as defined in my home country, the United States, and by Article 19 of the UN Declaration of Human Rights, does not apply to privately-owned spaces. In the past, this conundrum has led to controversy and, occasionally, court cases regarding company towns and shopping malls.
As our conversations and calls for protest move from the so-called town square to the quasi-public sphere that is social media, similar concerns arise. We easily forget that Facebook, Twitter, Blogspot, and every other place where we conduct our business online is privately owned, and that, by investing our time and content in this sites, we are allowing their staff ultimate control over our speech.

Banned Syria Video of Tortured Child -Hamza al-Khatib the child 13 years old


YouTube has reinstated access to a graphic, horrifying video of Hamza Ali al-Khateeb, a 13-year-old child who is reported to have been tortured, castrated, and killed by Syrian government thugs after being separated from his mother and father at an April protest against the Assad regime. A link to the video is here; it is extremely disturbing and not appropriate for viewing by children. The video was apparently blocked by YouTube due to its shocking content, then unblocked after reporters and human rights advocates petitioned YouTube administrators.
The boy's corpse was returned to his family a month after his arrest. As The Nation reports, they "risked their lives to produce the video."
The New York Times reports that his father was detained after the video went public, and hehas since been missing.

Guest Post: EU - A Flawed Foundation, But Brilliant Strategy?

Submitted by Gordon T. Long
EU - A Flawed Foundation, But Brilliant Strategy?
It was the perception of getting something of value without any meaningful sacrifice that initially fostered the EU Monetary Union. Though the countries of Europe were fiercely nationalistic they were willing to surrender minor sovereign powers only if it was going to prove advantageous to them. They were certainly unwilling to relinquish sufficient sovereignty to create the requisite political union required for its success.

After a decade long trial period it is now time to pay the price for Monetary Union. I suspect that the EU membership is unwilling to do so. Though they likely will see the price as too high to do so, the price to not do so has become even greater. They have unwittingly been trapped by a well crafted strategy.

Another day in paradise for Winnipeg hockey fans

Not much to be said that hasn’t been in this corner about Benny, oops, Winnipeg and the Jets, but here are a few scattershot observations on what was a very, very big day for Manitoba and for Canadian hockey.
More to Come?: “This is the thin edge of the wedge,” Councillor Terry Whitehead, past chair of the city’s NHL subcommittee said Tuesday. “It’s the first time in a long time the NHL admits that, if a team isn’t working, it can move to Canada.
“Why Winnipeg and not Hamilton? They have an arena and an owner and they had a team before, and lost it. The NHL likes to go back to places they were before.”
But maybe not before the Depression, when the Hamilton Tigers left.
Whitehead also said that, at the moment, there is no owner interested in pursuing a team for Hamilton.


US 'to view major cyber attacks as acts of war'

WASHINGTON (AFP) - The Pentagon has adopted a new strategy that will classify major cyber attacks as acts of war, paving the way for possible military retaliation, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday.

The newspaper said the Pentagon plans to unveil its first-ever strategy regarding cyber warfare next month, in part as a warning to foes that may try to sabotage the country's electricity grid, subways or pipelines.

"If you shut down our power grid, maybe we will put a missile down one of your smokestacks," it quoted a military official as saying.

House Rejects Bill to Raise Debt Limit -

WASHINGTON -- House Republicans dealt defeat to their own proposal for a $2.4 trillion increase in the nation's debt limit Tuesday, a political gambit designed to reinforce a demand for spending cuts to accompany any increase in government borrowing.
The vote was lopsided, with just 97 in favor of the measure and 318 against.
House Democrats accused the GOP of political demagoguery, while the Obama administration maneuvered to avoid taking sides -- or giving offense to majority Republicans. hits 100,000 visitors! hits 100,000 visitors!

» Texans Revolt Against TSA Tyranny, Storm Capitol Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!

Aaron Dykes
May 27, 2011

Exclusive footage of the Texas Capitol takeover Wednesday, when angry demonstrators led by radio host Alex Jones descended upon the Senate to rebuke threats used to quash a TSA bill that passed the House unanimously and was poised to clear the Senate with 30 of 31 senators supporting.

The bill’s sponsor Sen. Dan Patrick revealed that Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst was behind a move to kill the bill without “leaving fingerprints” on behalf of the Obama Administration. The Fedsthreatened to shut down airports in Texas if the TSA were challenged.

Supporters of the bill sent a message to the Texas Senate even after being barred from entry, shouting from the halls “criminals” and “treason” while decrying the tyrannical mission creep of the unconstitutional TSA, as well as the hostage tactics it has employed. The bill, HB 1937 [PDF], would have expressly declared it a crime for TSA or security personnel to reach into the pants or touch the genitals of passengers or other innocent bystanders.

We are sold on flags, apple pie and yellow ribbons. We cheer and even get a little misty eyed thinking about those brave soldiers that gave their all for us.

This Memorial Day I want you to get past the pomp and circumstance of holiday and really think about the reality of our world.

Why So Many Tornado Deaths This Year?


2011 has been a devastating year for tornado related deaths in the U.S., despite years of advancement with early warning technologies, radar technology, and public alert systems.

Perhaps all this science is enabling too much of a sense of false security and complacency. During April 25-28 more than 300 people lost their lives in the South and the Midwest. Just weeks later, a monster tornado took 142 lives around Joplin, MO. This is now the deadliest year for tornadoes since 1950 based on National Weather Service figures.

Advanced radar is now able to provide warnings of as much as 20 minutes. So, why have there been so many tornado deaths this year, given our current state of technology?

The answer seems to break down into four parts. La-Nina, Urban sprawl, Time-of-day, and Complacency.

Conditioned To Love Deception

Dees Illustration
Ethan Jacobs, J.D.
Activist Post

Throughout history, the majority of people have been conditioned to love being deceived and to idolize corrupt degenerates. People are deceived when they choose to believe facts or stories given to them by “experts” and “authorities,” no matter how false and absurd.

An old example is the story of Barabbas, in which the people were offered a choice of who should be freed from prison: Jesus who preached love and exposed the corrupt hypocrisy of the ruling class, or Barabbas; a man arrested for insurrection and murder (it should be noted that Barabbas may have had public support if his crimes were against the occupying Romans). Not only did the people choose to free Barabbas, but they demanded Jesus be crucified for challenging the authority and power of the religious leaders.

A modern example of the majority choosing lies over truth and worshiping corrupt degenerate criminals are the terrorist attacks of 9/11.

The comparisons to the purchasing power of the dollar since the inception of the Fed were missed by precisely nobody. Yet one thing that was missing was charting the corresponding reaction in price levels for a key prevailing staple commodity, namely wheat, which was to antiquity what oil is to the world today. Well, courtesy of Paul Mylchreest's latest must read Thunderroad report, prepare to be stunned by another 'comparative' chart which does an admirable job at predicting the future courtesy of the past, and which is about to go viral all over again...

Forecast: Spain's protests to 'go global' -

KINGSTON, N.Y., May 27 (UPI) -- Growing unrest in Spain will spread throughout Europe this summer and "go global" by winter, a U.S. trends forecaster said in an interview posted Friday.

"Young people have wised up. They know the score," Trends Research Institute Director Gerald Celente told King World News. "Those are the people that are ahead of all of these revolutions."

Inspired by the revolutionary wave of demonstrations and protests taking place in the Middle East and North Africa, tens of thousands of young Spaniards, expressing distress over 45 percent youth unemployment and severe government-imposed austerity measures, have taken over central squares in 60 cities -- including Madrid's busy Puerta del Sol -- seeking to overhaul Spain's socioeconomic and political systems, which they allege favor special interests, especially financial institutions.

Like the so-called Arab Spring, the growing Spanish movements are spread via social media networks and led in the streets by the young.

And "they're not leaving the streets," Celente told King World News, because "when you lose everything and have nothing left to lose, you lose it."

"These revolutions are going to spread through the summer in Europe, and by the winter it's going to go global," he said.

A French youth-led group plans a large demonstration in Paris this weekend in solidarity with Spain's protesters, known as "los indignados," or "the outraged." The French protest would follow Friday's close of the Group of Eight summit of world leaders, including U.S. President Barack Obama, in the French seaside resort town of Deauville.

Another Spanish-style uprising could emerge in neighboring Portugal next week, ahead of a June 5 snap election, The New York Times said.

Celente said Europe's Internet-savvy youth are "getting everyone out to join them because they know now that if they don't fight against the machine, the machine is going to grind them up."

Egyptian general admits 'virginity checks' conducted on protesters

Egyptian protesters get virginity tests?
  • 17 women were arrested at a March 9 protest in Cairo, after Mubarak's ouster
  • A senior Egyptian general says some of them were subject to "virginity checks"
  • He says it was done so that they wouldn't claim later they had been raped
  • One woman allegedly targeted had said, "They wanted to teach us a lesson"
Cairo (CNN) -- A senior Egyptian general admits that "virginity checks" were performed on women arrested at a demonstration this spring, the first such admission after previous denials by military authorities.
The allegations arose in an Amnesty International report, published weeks after the March 9 protest. It claimed female demonstrators were beaten, given electric shocks, strip-searched, threatened with prostitution charges and forced to submit to virginity checks.
At that time, Maj. Amr Imam said 17 women had been arrested but denied allegations of torture or "virginity tests."
