NYT: RADIOACTIVE HOT SPOTS IN TOKYO MEAN WIDER CONTAMINATION
Tokyo is the world’s largest metropolis with 33 million people! Japan’s leaders have continually insisted that the fallout from Fukushima will not spread far, or pose a health threat to residents, or contaminate the food chain. But they are wrong. Radioactive substances are entering people’s bodies from the air, from the food. It’s everywhere. Check out this New York Times story on how dirt next to a children’s baseball field in downtown Tokyo has four times the radioactivity of contaminated regions of Chernobyl! The cover-up is absolutely huge, and we must all realize how this could expand. For another source, here is a “checked” account of how strontium is at high levels around Tokyo (and gaining).
MEDICATED WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT: THE DANGERS OF FLUORIDE
Fluoride is nothing more than a waste product and a control substance. Fluoride accumulates in the human pineal gland, lowering melatonin production in animals (aka your sleep is less fulfilling) and inhibiting your intuition (aka mind dumbing-down ingredient). Believing that governments do things for the betterment of the population must be questioned; remember that ‘govern’ = control, and ‘-ment’ = mind.
NINE STEPS TO START BUILDING RESILIENCE INTO YOUR LIFE TODAY

Remember, much of it is just changing habits to become more resilient and efficient.
HOMELAND SECURITY APPLICATION DETECTS WOULD-BE CRIMINALS
Do you remember the Tom Cruise film called “Minority Report”? DHS wants to detain people for pre-conceived guilty expression. The pre-conceiving part of the software is predetermined by our government. The concepts of this software are wrong for many different reasons; the fact that it’s being actively developed with our tax money seems illegal too. Basically, everyone is being pursued by our government without a warrant. Nice. So someday in the future when I’m walking about the grocery store nervous or agitated about something completely unrelated, I can expect to be tackled by law enforcement on the way to the check out?
A BEAUTIFUL PHOTO THAT EXPRESSES OUR CONNECTION TO THE STARS
The Northern Lights, the Milky Way & a meteor sky-streaking – all in the same photograph, taken in Norway. There is certainly lots of geomagnetic activity coming.
CLEAR LINK BETWEEN 11-YEAR SUN CYCLE & WINTER WEATHER
NASA’s Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment show differences in UV light reaching the Earth during the 11-year solar cycle can change airmass qualities.
MILITARY SEEKS SENSOR TO GAUGE BRAIN’S REACTION TO STORIES
So the Pentagon wants to find out how the brain reacts to different stories? Sounds like a story to bypass, right? Think again. Basically, the Defense Department wants a sensor that can tell whether or not someone stopped at a checkpoint has been influenced by radical or violent stories. This is all about a big theme of mapping the human cognitive functions: mind control technologies are weapons which use drugs, electronic microchip implants, nanotechnologies, microwaves and /or electromagnetic waves to subvert an individual’s sense of control over their own thinking, behavior, emotions or decision making by attacking the brain and nervous system.
WHY ARE BANKS REALLY NOT LENDING?
All major economies have fiat currencies. The banks and the international banking cartel is in control. Read the book: “The Creature From Jekyll Island.” You will then understand the power of the banking cartel. in 2009, five banks held 80% of derivatives in America. Now, just four banks hold a staggering 95.9% of U.S. derivatives. In 2008, derivatives played a crucial role in bringing down the global economy, so you would think that the world’s top policymakers would have reined these things in by now – but they haven’t. The world’s GDP is only about $65 trillion, or roughly 10.83% of the worldwide value of the global derivatives market, according to The Economist. So there is literally not enough money on the planet to backstop the banks trading these things if they run into trouble. The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) estimated the net notional value of uncollateralized derivatives risks is between $8 trillion or less, which is still a staggering amount of money and well beyond the billions being talked about in Europe! Imagine the fallout from a multi-trillion explosion if several banks went down at once. It would eclipse the collapse of Lehman Brothers in no uncertain terms. A governmental default would panic already anxious investors, causing a run on several major European banks in an effort to recover their deposits. That would, in turn, cause several banks to literally run out of money and declare bankruptcy. Short-term borrowing costs would skyrocket and liquidity would evaporate. That would cause a ricochet across the Atlantic as the institutions then panic and try to recover their own capital by withdrawing liquidity by any means possible.

AUSTRALIA NARROWLY PASSES CARBON TAX. IS USA NEXT?
From a purely scientific perspective, the whole global warming movement on blaming carbon dioxide is now proven as a tax scheme. This is a carbon tax on 500 of the country’s biggest polluters starting in July of 2012 before transitioning into a market-based trading scheme in 2015. My prediction is that this will prove disastrous for Australia’s economy.
