Here is Volume 21 of “Simon’s Edge,” previously called “Simon Says Weatherwise & Otherwise,” an out-of-box and alternative collection of news link substantiated intelligence on the subjects of climate, weather, technology, financial investments/commodities, socio-economic and health-related risks, issues, ideas, potential “Black Swans” and insights to help gain Bulldog Pundit readers an ‘edge’ in the onslaught of news from around the world.
GET YOUR HEAD AROUND THIS, FOLKS: A HUGE MESS FOR A LONG TIME YET
All of a sudden, the Western media has dramatically ramped-up its reporting of Fukushima. Long ignored since the summer, Fukushima has turned into a much larger catastrophe than most government officials wish to admit. While Time and others are saying the China Syndrome has likely happened, we are saying it’s well beyond that already. And yet it is most bizarre how the world is doing so little to emphasize the potential scenarios that could unfold around this. If, more likely when, radiation spreads to China and elsewhere, and starts causing an increasing amount of crops and milk to be useless, then we have a really big problem. But how about if Tokyo is evacuated in 2012?? Seems fantasy, the stuff of movies, right? That potential ‘Black Swan’ is an increasing risk when so much radiation gets into the water and air.
READ AGAIN, THIS IS NOT A TYPO: EU BANS CLAIM THAT WATER CAN PREVENT DEHYDRATION
Total lunacy! This is what this is all about … we are being indoctrinated to prepare us for the coming water shortages. Next is jail time for anyone calling the sun hot or the sky blue.
FITCH BLOWS THE COVER OFF U.S. BANKS; WARNS OF EUROPEAN CONTAGION RISK
Perhaps it’s understandable why the market has been, well, a little chaotic. The majority of the world’s “systemically important” banks are all exposed to one another and no one knows exactly how bad the exposure is since disclosing that information would mean financial suicide. Are the big banks like a stack of cards? 86% of the massive and largely interconnected “too-big-to-fail” banks are all located in the USA and Europe, with only a handful in China and Japan. Thus, in looking at the global financial system as a whole, the USA and Europe are about as disconnected as a huge plate of spaghetti, with a few random Asian noodles mixed in. Although the world’s biggest traders of credit derivatives have disclosed to shareholders that they have sold protection on more than $5 trillion of debt globally, they won’t say how much of that was issued by Greece, Italy, Ireland, Portugal & Spain, known as the GIIPS.
Agricultural land in Japan is becoming contaminated. Remember that these Cesium reports are coming from government figures, which are proven by many other sources to be much lower than in actuality. What is absolutely preposterous is that government agencies are saying there is now “safe limits” of cesium and even other radioactive isotopes! Some Japanese meat, rice, fish and veggies are becoming more toxic by the week … and, this is all going onto the international market for sale.
THE 7TH LARGEST BANKRUPTCY (MF GLOBAL) IN THE USA MAY BE AS CLOSE AS YOUR GRAIN ELEVATOR
There are some lessons being learned that will impact the relationships involving farmers, grain elevators, and the banks that lend to both of them. There will likely be increased costs involved in the business of selling a bushel of grain, meaning less profitability for everyone involved. Those lost profits will be used to insure future losses do not recur.
DOES SMALLPOX CONTRACT TO SIGA HIGHLIGHT CORPORATE-GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION, OR IMMINENT THREAT?
This is an excellent piece of journalistic work … it starts in what is clearly another example of a no-bid contract handed out to a major corporation with monied interests, with the U.S. government taking extraordinary steps to cut all other companies out of the bidding process in order to award Siga Technologies the contract. On October 3, 2011, Emergent BioSolutions received “an award to supply the U.S. Government with 44.75 million doses of BioThrax (Anthrax Vaccine Absorbed) over a period of five years for a total value of up to $1.25 billion.” Only a few days before, on September 15, 2011, the Department of Health and Human Services announced that it had awarded millions of dollars worth of grants to the Biomedical Advanced Research and Developmental Authority (BARDA) for the purpose of supporting the “advanced development of a novel next-generation anthrax vaccine and a new type of anthrax antitoxin.” The threat of another more diabolical purpose behind the stockpiling of drugs and vaccines in relation to diseases like smallpox and anthrax, coupled with other more “coincidental” happenings, is still very real.
SCIENTISTS INVENT LIGHTEST MATERIAL ON EARTH. WHAT NOW?
They know precisely of its exact purpose. Think ‘housing’ for nanobots. And if you really want to know the ‘darker’ side to such an innocent-sounding Mainstream article, go here for some suggestions.
THE UK EQUIVALENT OF AL GORE
Charles Hendry, the climate change minister who pledged to ‘lead by example’ in the supposed fight against global warming, is facing accusations of hypocrisy after buying himself a 20-bedroom castle – with a potentially massive carbon footprint – as a second home. Where does a government man in-charge of the non-position of a busted climate farce get £2.5m from?
DANGEROUS DARPA (PENTAGON WING) FOLLOWING YOU BY YOUR HEARTBEAT… BUT WHY?
Picking up “life-form readings” may sound like science fiction straight out of Star Trek, but the Defense Department has been able to do it for years now. Like your fingerprints, irises and even your veins, your heartbeat can be a unique biometric calling card to distinguish you in a crowd. DARPA is hoping its sensor can capitalize on this. At the end of the article, it cites the potentially positive thing this invention could do, like find people in earthquake-demolished buildings, but if you follow the ‘scent’ and see what DARPA has done before with technology, this has just more dark intentions.
NOTICE OF INTENT TO PERFORM WEATHER MODIFICATION IN CALIFORNIA
In the classified section of a newspaper, no less. Not only is silver iodide toxic as it rains out over a population, but it’s essentially a coin-flip as to if it works. People are getting sick from these chem-trails, and now, the government ironically is openly stating that they are, IN FACT, using weather modification.
As always, thanks for reading. I appreciate your interest. Until next week … connect the dots, be aware and seek out the ‘edge’ you need.
