Why Does The Beast In ‘Beauty And The Beast’ Look Eerily Similar To Baphomet?

Why Does The Beast In ‘Beauty And The Beast’ Look Eerily Similar To Baphomet? | beauty-and-the-beast-1024x576 | US News

Does it upset anyone else that the “beast” in Disney’s new remake of “Beauty and the Beast” is a goat-man with very long horns that bears quite a resemblance to Baphomet? In Disney’s 1991 animated version of “Beauty and the Beast”, the “beast” looked very much like a gentle lion. There were a couple of small horns poking out of his head, but those could have easily been mistaken as tufts of hair. But this time around, the “beast” has been depicted as a hybrid goat-man that has enormous goat horns sticking out of his head. And of course anyone that is familiar with the occult knows that the most famous goat-man in the entire world is Baphomet – the official symbol of the Church of Satan. Could it be possible that the similarity between this “beast” and Baphomet is more than just a coincidence?

In 1856, Eliphas Levi drew his infamous picture of a goat-man which came to be known as “Baphomet”. Since that time, his drawing came to be very closely associated with the devil, and eventually it was even adopted by the Church of Satan as their official symbol. The following comes from Wikipedia

Lévi’s Baphomet is the source of the later Tarot image of the Devil in the Rider-Waite design.[3] The concept of a downward-pointing pentagram on its forehead was enlarged upon by Lévi in his discussion (without illustration) of the Goat of Mendes arranged within such a pentagram, which he contrasted with the microcosmic man arranged within a similar but upright pentagram.[59] The actual image of a goat in a downward-pointing pentagram first appeared in the 1897 book La Clef de la Magie Noire by Stanislas de Guaita.[60]It was this image that was later adopted as the official symbol—called the Sigil of Baphomet—of the Church of Satan, and continues to be used among Satanists.[61]

Over time, the symbol of Baphomet has become increasingly prominent in the occult world.

In recent years, the Satanic Temple has made national headlines by attempting to erect statues of Baphomet in several major cities

In 2014 The Satanic Temple commissioned an 8 1/2 foot statue of Baphomet to stand alongside a monument of the Ten Commandments at Oklahoma State Capitol [65]“respect for diversity and religious minorities” were cited as reasons for erecting the monument.[66] After the Ten Commandments monument was vandalized plans to erect the Baphomet statue were put on hold as the Satanic Temple did not want their statue to stand alone by the Oklahoma capitol.[67] The Oklahoma Supreme Court declared all religious displays illegal[68] and On 25 July 2015 the statue was erected near a warehouse in Detroit, as a symbol of the modern Satanist movement.[69][70] The Satanic Temple may take the statue to Arkansas where another 10 Commandments monument is proposed.[71]

You can see photos of these statues of Baphomet here. So why does this new “beast” in “Beauty and the Beast” resemble these statues so closely?

In no other version of Beauty and the Beast has the “beast” ever been depicted as a goat-man.

So was this a conscious choice on the part of the producers of the film, or was it just an accident?

Up until now, the biggest controversy surrounding the film has been the fact that it is the very first Disney movie to feature an “exclusively gay moment”, and this prompted Rev. Franklin Graham and many other leaders to call for a boycott.

Unfortunately, the boycott did not make much of an impact because Beauty and the Beast made an astounding $350 million worldwide during its opening weekend…

Beauty and the Beast earned $180 million internationally and an additional $170 million at the domestic box office, a sterling result for the $160 million-budgeted film. In a sign of its popularity, Beauty and the Beast topped the box office in nearly every market where it screened. The fairy-tale romance earned $44.8 million in China, grossed $22.8 million in the United Kingdom, grabbed $11.9 million in South Korea, nabbed $10.7 million in Germany and picked up $7.6 million in Italy. Beauty and the Beast even performed well in Russia, where its opening was overshadowed by controversy surrounding the inclusion of a gay character. Russian authorities gave the film a higher rating to limit younger audience’s access. Russia has a number of anti-LGBT laws in place.

Of course the LGBTQ community saw this as a great victory for their cause. The following comes from a prominent gay advocacy website

This is the largest opening weekend ever for a PG-rated film and for a Disney live-action film, surpassing Maleficent, The Jungle Book, and Cinderella. Experts predict that,at this rate, Beauty and the Beast may break $1 billion in ticket sales.

GLAAD, an LGBT media organization, was elated by the box-office success. “Inclusive storytelling pays,” tweeted CEO Sarah Kate Ellis.

“This will help send a message to LGBTQ kids that they’re important,” the group declared on social media, along with the hashtag #TeamLeFou, a show of solidarity with Disney’s first clearly gay character.

The film would have never made so much money without millions of evangelical Christian families flocking to go see it.

This is the kind of apostasy that we always knew was coming in the last days, but it is still shocking to see. What we willingly feed into our minds is going to determine who we eventually become. And so when we gladly gobble up thousands of hours of “programming” that the big media corporations keep feeding us, we shouldn’t be amazed that our culture now reflects their value system.

As far as Beauty and the Beast is concerned, just consider the value system of the director. The following comes from the Olive Branch Report

Beauty and the Beast‘s director Bill Condon, 61, born in New York City and raised in an Irish Catholic family, is openly homosexual and has a visceral hatred for Christianity.

Pete Baklinski reports for LifeSiteNews, March 17, 2017, that in a 2007 interview with Passport Magazine, Bill Condon said he wishes he could “rip pages out of the Bible” when he stays in hotel rooms.

When millions of dollars are at stake, very few things happen just “by accident”.

Someone needs to ask the people in charge of this film why the “beast” looks so much like Baphomet.

Unfortunately, I don’t think that most people would care even if we were told that it was done on purpose, and that is yet another indication of just how far we have fallen as a society.

Long Term Cholesterol Drug Use Doubles Risk of Breast Cancer

Long Term Cholesterol Drug Use Doubles Risk of Breast Cancer | statin-pills | Big Pharma General Health Medical & Health Sleuth Journal

A study published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention indicates that women who are long-term users of statin drugs have between 83-143% increased risk of breast cancer.[1]

The population-based case-control study utilized data from women in the Seattle-Puget Sound region, which included 916 invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) and 1,068 invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) cases of 55-74 years of age diagnosed between 2000 and 2008, and a control of 902 women.

Whereas recent publicity on statin drugs has focused on their potential use for cancer prevention or as anti-cancer agents, this study found exactly the opposite with current users of statins for 10 years or longer having a 1.83-fold increased risk of invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) and a 1.97-fold increased risk of invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) compared to never users of statins.

Additionally, among women diagnosed with hypercholesterolemia, a condition marked by high levels of lipids and lipoproteins in the blood, current users of statins for 10 years or longer had more than double the risk of both IDC [an average of 104% increased risk] and ILC [an average of 143% increased risk] compared to never users.

Of course, the discovery of a correlation between higher statin drug use and higher breast cancer risk does not necessarily imply causation. For instance, women who are on statins are obviously compliant with conventional blood lipid screening recommendations and therefore are more likely to be complaint with breast screening guidelines as well. Given that recent estimates show that breast screenings have resulted in over 1.3 million US women being misdiagnosed and overtreated for breast cancer in the past 30 years, simply being complaint with breast screening guidelines will result in significantly increased risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer regardless of whether the diagnosis is accurate or not. [2]

On the other hand, this study could indicate a more serious problem, namely, that cholesterol-lowering drugs and statin drugs in particular are carcinogenic. Statin drugs, in fact, have long been suspected to increase the risk of certain cancers, including prostate,[3] colorectal,[4] and kidney;[5] conversely, low cholesterol has been found to increase the risk of cancer at all sites, further implicating these cholesterol-lowering agents as possible carcinogens.[i][6]

At the least, this new study raises doubt as to whether the recent push to identify statin drugs as possible chemopreventive or chemotherapeutic agents can be validated by independent science, especially considering that this class of cholesterol-lowering medications have been linked to over 300 adverse health effects in the published literature.

This latest finding is all the more reason why natural dietary and nutritional interventions should be considered a first line defense against elevated blood lipids, and why the very question of whether cholesterol is a primary contributing factor in heart disease should be examined more carefully.

Washington’s Little Known Spy Agency

Washington’s Little Known Spy Agency | surveillance | Government Government Corruption Science & Technology Special Interests Surveillance

US spying is institutionalized – on anyone, anywhere for any reason or none at all.

Invented national security threats, targeting dissent and whistleblowers, along with challenging press freedom undermine fundamental rights.

In Palko v. Connecticut (1937), the Supreme Court called “(f)reedom of thought the matrix, the indispensable condition, of nearly every other form of freedom.”

In Texas v. Johnson (1989), Justice William Brennan, writing for the majority, said “if there is a bedrock principle underlying the First Amendment, it is that government may not prohibit the expression of an idea simply because society finds the idea offensive or disagreeable.”

“Thomas Jefferson said “(w)hat country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance.” Free speech and other fundamental rights “cannot be limited without being lost.”

Former US Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall stressed “(a)bove all else, the First Amendment means that government has no power to restrict expression (regardless of its) ideas…subject matter (or) content….Our people are guaranteed the right to express any thought, free from government censorship” – along with having all other constitutional protections.

Unaccountable spying on Americans reflects police state rule, operating lawlessly, watching everyone to assure unchallenged control, wanting unacceptable ideas suppressed.

On March 20, intelligence expert James Bamford discussed a “multibillion-dollar US spy agency you haven’t heard of,” saying:

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is located on a “heavily protected military base some 15 miles south of Washington.”

Few Americans know about its “massive headquarters,” larger than the CIA’s or US Capitol.

“Completed in 2011 at a cost of $1.4 billion, the main building measures four football fields long and covers as much ground as two aircraft carriers,” Bamford explained.

“In 2016, the agency purchased 99 acres in St. Louis to construct additional buildings at a cost of $1.75 billion to accommodate the growing workforce, with 3,000 employees already in the city.”

Early in his administration, Obama didn’t know NGA existed. Bamford calls it “by far the most shadowy” of US spy agencies – subverting constitutional protections to keep America safe for privileged interests at the expense of all others.

NGA allegedly confined its spying overseas. According to Bamford, “there’s reason to believe” Trump will expand its mandate to spy as freely domestically as abroad – including secretive overhead surveillance by satellites and drones.

Concern is growing that technology focused on spying abroad “may soon be (used) on (US) citizens,” said Bamford.

As of 2015, no federal statutory limitations existed to control aerial spying domestically. In 2016, Baltimore police began using drones to conduct secretive spy-in-the-sky surveillance of area residents.

Technology can track everything stationary or moving over an area up to 15-square miles at a time. According to Bamford, two high-tech drones hovering over Manhattan can “observe and follow all outdoor human activity, night and day,” round-the-clock, every day.

Objects “as small as a stick of butter on a plate” can be zoomed in and watched. Technology being developed will “enable drones to remain aloft for years at a time.”

Big Brother-in-the-sky is ominously real, along with its ability to monitor virtually all phone and online communications.

Police states dream of being able to monitor and track everyone in all ways, at all times, giving them control over our lives, freedoms and welfare – in ways Orwell never imagined.

The shocking reality should terrify everyone. Few Americans realize the dangers they face. Public awareness of what’s most important doesn’t exist.

US-style “democracy” serves its privileged class exclusively, at the expense of everyone else, destroying fundamental rights in the process.

The West Is Collapsing As The East Ascends

The West Is Collapsing As The East Ascends | collapsing-1024x576 | Collapse Economy & Business Sleuth Journal Special Interests

The 24 Mega Green City infrastructure project in India will connect Delhi with Mumbai, creating a commerce corridor incorporating 21st century technologies and amenities. – Interview with ZincOne Resources’ Jim Walchuck, The Daily Coin

It seems absurd that Asia is willing and able to build high-speed “bullet” trains to connect large population centers while the United States struggles with an antiquated Amtrak rail system often beset with service interruptions and lethal accidents. The truth of the matter is that the major U.S. metropolitan areas are beset with massive loads of debt, including a ticking-time debt-bomb in the form of several trillion dollars in unfunded public pension funds.

The Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor is a major infrastructure project that India is developing with Japan. The project will upgrade nine mega industrial zones as well as the country’s high-speed freight line, three ports, and six airports. A 4,000 MW power plant and a six-lane intersection-free expressway will also be constructed, which will connect the country’s political and financial capitals.  – The Daily Coin

The 24 Mega City project underscores the economic, political and cultural contrast between the eastern and western hemisphere countries, with the sun setting in the west and rising in the east. The west is mired in a catastrophic web of Government-heavy economies that exist on the life support of trillions in money printing and debt issuance. True, some countries like China have relatively high debt levels but they are offsetting that form of fiat currency debasement with massive gold accumulation. The heart of the problem is highlighted by the graphic below (click to enlarge):

The West Is Collapsing As The East Ascends | Untitled-7 | Collapse Economy & Business Sleuth Journal Special Interests The budget for the U.S. Government will primarily be spent on social security, defense, medicare/medicaid and interest on the Government’s debt. Those five items will burn more two-thirds of the Government’s budgeted expenditures in Fiscal Year 2017.

But don’t bother asking how the Government plans on paying for that. The funds will come from oldest forms of currency debasement: money printing and debt issuance. And Trump’s proposed spending agenda will accelerate the growth rate of both .

It’s amazing that the U.S. Government seems to have unlimited funds available to spend on guns, bullets and surveillance of the citizenry. Ranked in order of expenditures, The U.S. spends more on its military than the next 14 highest ranked countries. “On the books,” the U.S. spent $597 billion in 2015.  That was 4x more than China and 9x more than Russia (source: International Institute for Strategic Studies).

While the west, led by the United States, advances its collapse with rampant currency debasement and unbridled imperialism, the east is investing its resources in the future – in the advancement of its civilization. Perhaps the hallmark of this contrast is best represented by the flow of physical gold from west to east. The Shadow of Truth has devoted today’s episode discussing some of the signs pointing to the collapse of the west and the rise of the east:

First Democrat Official Tied To Elite Pedophile Ring Pleads Guilty (VIDEO)

First Democrat Official Tied To Elite Pedophile Ring Pleads Guilty (VIDEO) | pedophile-ring-fake-news | Multimedia Sleuth Journal Special Interests US News

By: The Voice of Reason |

While the mainstream media has been trying to keep the public distracted with yet more stories about Russian conspiracies, the crackdown against high level pedophiles has begun. We have previously reported that many pedophiles are far from the image of a stereotypical loser; in fact they are often placed in the highest rungs of society, and are extremely well connected. Case in point – Democrat and former mayor of Hubbard, Ohio Richard Keenan.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the recent guilty admission by the former mayor of 20 counts of sex crimes, including 8 counts of rape. The victim was 4 years old when the abuse started. President Trump is intensifying his efforts against the embedded pedophile rings, and this is only the beginning.

Now that they know the President himself is after them, what desperate tactics will Democrats and the mainstream media resort to in order to keep themselves out of jail?

Your News Wire Reports:

Former mayor of Hubbard, Ohio (D) Richard Keenan has admitted in court to raping a young child, as President Trump’s urgent investigation into the elite pedophile ring that has infiltrated Washington D.C. and politics nationwide continues taking down high-profile perpetrators.

Keenan previously blamed the 4-year-old victim for initiating the acts, describing her as a “willing participant“. He is now facing life behind bars.

The Youngstown Vindicator reports that according to court documents, the victim told Keenan’s wife about the sexual abuse that began when she was 4-years-old and lasted for three years.

When Keenan’s wife confronted him about the allegations, he responded, “I did it.”

The Democrat mayor also confessed to the allegations to his pastor, a social worker and his brother and sister-in-law, according to documents filed by the assistant prosecutor.

Keenan admitted himself into a psychiatric facility after the admissions because he said he was feeling suicidal.

Filings obtained by the Youngstown Vindicator go into extensive detail about his purported admissions during group discussions at the psychiatric ward. He allegedly said he blamed the victim for initiating the acts and said she was a “willing participant.”

WKRN reports that Keenan was visibly shaken Friday as he changed his plea to guilty on 20 counts of sex crimes, including eight counts of rape. Keenan agreed to a life sentence with the eligibility of parole after ten years.

According to court documents, the abuse began as early as September 2013 when the victim — who Keenan knew — was just 4 years old.

It gives the victim some closure. Obviously, keeps this young child from having to testify and I think it’s a good result given all the facts and circumstances,” said Assistant Prosecutor Gabe Wildman.

He said prosecutors have a responsibility to do what’s best for the victim and that they accomplished that Friday.

Not bringing her in here to have to testify in the small courtroom with this man in there as well.

Keenan’s family was emotional. They lashed out at reporters after the hearing and tried to block him from the camera’s view.

Prosecutors said this just goes to show how difficult these cases are for everyone.

I think what we’ve seen today is that they’re tough, right? They’re tough on everyone. They’re tough on the defendant’s family, they’re tough on the victim’s family, and obviously, our concern lies with the victim’s family,” Wildman said.


THE VOICE OF REASON is the pen name of Michael DePinto, a graduate of Capital University Law School, and an attorney in Florida. Having worked in the World Trade Center, along with other family and friends, Michael was baptized by fire into the world of politics on September 11, 2001. Michael’s political journey began with tuning in religiously to whatever the talking heads on television had to say, then Michael became a “Tea-Bagging” activist as his liberal friends on the Left would say, volunteering within the Jacksonville local Tea Party, and most recently Michael was sworn in as an attorney. Today, Michael is a major contributor to www.BeforeItsNews.com, he owns and operates www.thelastgreatstand.com, where Michael provides what is often very ‘colorful’ political commentary, ripe with sarcasm, no doubt the result of Michael’s frustration as he feels we are witnessing the end of the American Empire. The topics Michael most often weighs in on are: Martial Law, FEMA Camps, Jade Helm, Economic Issues, Government Corruption, and Government Conspiracy.

Should You Use Weight Loss Supplements?

Should You Use Weight Loss Supplements? | pills-medicine-diet | General Health Special Interests

Most people want to lose weight to experience the benefits of having a healthy body and avoid the problems of not. The stresses of excessive weight include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and the spectrum of problems caused by toxins are experiences we’re better off to avoid. One of the cornerstones to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, and its benefits, is the understanding that having a healthy body isn’t a process with an end; it needs to be a way of life.

A Consistent Plan Has Cumulative Benefits

Adopting extreme methods for the short term to “get back on track” will not be met with success. Crash diets are similar to the 30-minute dental hygiene exercise of brushing, flossing, and rinsing that some people will perform before going to the dentist to make up for months of skimping out. The reality is that a cram job doesn’t add up the same way that cumulative benefits do. If you want to lose weight, you need to make a healthy diet and regular exercise part of your life.

How many times have you heard someone say, “Well, if I just lost 10 pounds I’d be exactly where I want to be and the goal would be achieved.” Losing ten pounds may be a worthwhile goal, but achieving it doesn’t mean the journey is over. If you weigh 170 pounds, and temporarily adopt the habits of a 160 pound person long enough to become one… only to return to the habits of a 170 pound person, you’ll turn right back into a 170 pound person again. That’s exactly why a majority of people who lose a significant amount of weight, fail to permanently keep it off. Temporary change produces temporary results; permanent change produces permanent results.

Quality Matters

Many people supplement their diet and exercise efforts with weight loss supplements. The motivation and intentions aren’t necessarily evil or wrong. If your body operates in a less than optimal capacity, such as may be the case when a sluggish thyroid or imbalanced blood sugar levels are present, supplementation to support the shortcomings of those ailments may be beneficial when safe, high quality, effective supplements are used. A weight loss supplement which lacks any one of those three traits should immediately be excluded from your consideration.

Miracle Drugs or Money Wasters?

Many weight loss pills, powders, and potions are available from pharmacies, natural health food stores, and online. But, how many actually do anything? How many contain ingredients worth mentioning? How many are the result of a budget where 90% of the dollars are spent on marketing, and 10% are spent on product formulation? Usually, a glance at the accompanying advertisement and its supporting documents will tell you if the weight loss product is what it claims, or just a waste of money.

5 Considerations Before Choosing a Weight Loss Supplement

There is no shortage of weight loss products on the market. Most have very interesting sounding names, probably have a very nice label, might have a photo of a weight lifter or athletic person but, despite the eye candy, lack any real sort of efficacy or benefit. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen a “weight loss” product commercial that talked about everything except how it worked! Before spending your money, make sure you understand the product you’re buying.

  1. What are its active ingredients?
  2. Is there any supportive research to substantiate the efficacy of those ingredients?
  3. Is the formula tried and tested, or is it today’s latest fad?
  4. How safe is this? Are there dangerous side effects?
  5. Is the product of interest because of packaging, or because of its efficacy and quality?

You need to examine the contents of any weight loss product you use. Don’t let beautiful labels and attractive marketing cloud your assessment of the actual ingredients and quality of what you’re ingesting. Buying a cheap supplement isn’t the place to save money, you may just be buying yourself a capsule of toxins. It’s very easy for a “company” to make a bulk purchase of cheap, low quality extracts and powders produced in completely inorganic and unacceptable conditions, encapsulate a junk formulation, and put it in a bottle with a picture of a fitness model on the label.

Know Your Source

Make sure any company you entrust your health to has a track record of taking that responsibility seriously. Are they using quality ingredients? Where did they source them from? What production method did their facility use? And, is it organic? Is the product presented in a way that addresses its real potential or is it a lot of fluff?

Global Healing Center has been producing nutritional supplements of the highest quality possible for over ten years and has thousands of satisfied customers. A weight loss formula like Slimirex® used in combination with appropriate dietary adjustments and a complementary exercise routine are measures that support the development of a healthy body. Slimirex is the only weight management product on the market to use the Spagyrex® processed blend of powerful herbs to support normal weight management. The ultra-pure herbs work synergistically to burn fat, suppress appetite, charge your metabolism, and reduce cravings for sweets.

Progress is addictive, be sure to record your results!

Who Controls the (Alternate) “Reality” in America?

Who Controls the (Alternate) “Reality” in America? | alternate-reality-1024x600 | Mainstream Media Propaganda Sleuth Journal Special Interests US News

Who’s really got the power in America? Most people are living in an alternate reality created by those with the biggest platforms.

Individual “reality” is defined by what people believe to be true more than what actually exists. A firmly held opinion can create such a vast cognitive dissonance that many people can actually witness something that challenges their belief and still deny that they could be incorrect.

This sounds like the biggest conspiracy theory ever, but if you are here reading this, you probably at least suspect that there are manipulations at play in nearly everything we view or read. There are just a few hundred people who control the media, entertainment, and the internet, and unless we are completely unplugged, we are lambasted with their versions of reality relentlessly every day.

Let’s talk about how opinions are really formed and who has the influence to sway the people of America. No matter how well-informed a person tries to be, the truth can be hard to come by when bias is presented from so many primary sources.

The Places People Get Their News and Information

According to the Pew Research Group, people get their information from the following sources:

Who Controls the (Alternate) “Reality” in America? | PJ_2016.07.07_Modern-News-Consumer_1-01 | Mainstream Media Propaganda Sleuth Journal Special Interests US News

Photo Credit Journalism.org

This means that those with the power to influence are the people who pull the strings of network news, those in entertainment, those who make the rules of major social media platforms, and those with the biggest websites. Radio and print newspapers have little influence these days, and for that reason, most major print newspapers also have online outlets.

Notice also how people of varying age groups rely more strongly on different sources for their information.

Network News

Who remembers sitting at the table or just after dinner, being bored to tears as a little kid while your parents were glued to the evening news?  I remember my dad wanted to watch the news from three sources because he wanted more than one opinion. I get it now, but at the time, it felt like “the news” would never be over. I usually ended up playing with my Barbies or reading a book.

It seems that times haven’t changed much, if the Pew survey cited above is to be believed, and it appears that the older people are, the more likely they are to watch the news on TV.

But here’s the catch.

Although there are thousands of news stations across the country, nearly all of them are owned by six corporations. In the 80s, the stations were dispersed through about 50 different companies – not a lot but a far more diverse sampling than you have now that your news is filtered through the lenses of billionaire corporations.

So, basically, everything we hear on the news is controlled by these six companies:

  • Time Warner
  • Walt Disney
  • News Corp.
  • Viacom
  • CBS Corporation
  • NBC Universal

Whatever their opinions are, those are the biases from which your news will be presented.

But it goes even deeper than just news because these corporations also control the entertainment industry. And what better way to control the masses than through propagandized drama in which the abnormal is normalized, and agendas are insidiously promoted without the knowledge of an unaware watcher?

Here is a glimpse at the networks owned by these corporations.

Who Controls the (Alternate) “Reality” in America? | media-ownership | Mainstream Media Propaganda Sleuth Journal Special Interests US News

Photo Credit The Global Movement

As you can see, nearly anything you watch on any channel is influenced by a handful of people – those who run these major corporations. If they want to push an agenda, you can rest assured that agenda will be present on each of their outlets in some form.

The Rulers of the Internet

People under 50 get more of their news and information from the web than any other source these days.

One hundred websites get the majority of the traffic on the internet, and that traffic is massive. The people behind these websites are major influences in the reality perceived by Americans.

Think about this:

Google gets 28 billion visits per month. That means when you look something up on Google, you are provided with the answer Google wants you to have, which may or may not be the actual answer.

YouTube follows quickly behind with 20.5 billion visits. (source) I’m sure by now you have heard that YouTube has taken advertising privileges away from a lot of videographers whose points of view are contrary to the agenda they wish to promote. They’re saying that the content is not “advertiser friendly” – and obviously, this discourages people who dedicate their days to advancing the truth from doing so. They too must make a living, and video editing is a time-consuming process. One well-done 10-minute video can take 8 hours to produce.

These are the 100 websites that provide the “reality” for the majority of the people who rely on the internet for their news, as per Alexa.com’s traffic reporting system.

Social Media

You may have noticed in the infographic above that a massive amount of traffic goes to social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter.

Both of those networks are notorious for censoring points of view that are not part of a liberal outlook. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably heard about Twitter permanently banning a bunch of popular Alt-Right people, most infamously, Milo Yiannopolis for his perspective.

Now, personally, I’m not a fan of the Alt-Right viewpoint. It seems like they’re presenting meanness as “truth” when they could just as easily state true things without being jerks about it. But that is beside the point. If these people are going to be banned for their unsavory ways of communicating, why does Twitter allow things like #RapeMelania to trend? Why does Twitter allow actual threats against the President? If you’re going to start banning offensiveness, shouldn’t it be across the board?

Then there’s Facebook, who has actually been busted running social experiments on its users by attempting to alter people’s moods with what they show in their timelines. But it doesn’t stop there. Nearly every blogger I know who works in the alternative news genre has been in Facebook jail at least once for presenting an unpopular opinion. I personally got warnings when I posted this article on my page – the article was taken down dozens of times and reported as “hate speech” when the “hate” it reported on was certainly not MY hatred.

Of course, when you sign up to use any of these social media networks, you agree to their terms and conditions. They’re businesses and are under no obligation to be truthful or have integrity. Go ahead and use them – I do because they are helpful to my business – but do so fully aware that what you see presented there reflects the opinions of the management and not actual reality.

So how do we get the truth?

There really aren’t any unbiased sources out there. Having worked as an alternative journalist, I can tell you honestly that no matter how hard you try to be unbiased, your personal feelings sneak in, at least a little bit. Maybe it’s with the background information you provide to support your story because you can see the direction what you are reporting on is going. Maybe it is with a little bit of snarky commentary or a pithy headline.

Because of this, many people pick the reality in which they want to live. Maybe they select ultra-conservative websites that reflect their religious beliefs. Perhaps they opt for anti-establishment outlets that gleefully point out in a non-partisan fashion that all of the politicians are sell-outs. For others, they want “news” that supports their warm, fuzzy liberal view of the world.

It’s pretty easy to get manipulated through the subliminal messages and the predictive programming, but some folks seem to be immune. You really want to be one of those people, and if you aren’t, you can get there.

I wrote about this previously:

What if some people are genetically more susceptible than others? What if some of us are immune to this constant bombardment of images, words, and ideas that most people seem to buy into without question?

Could this be the difference between the vast majority of the people and those of us are that are awake and aware? Are we just mutants? Is this why I can explain this stuff until I lose my voice and just get a blank stare from people who think I am the crazy one?

The vast majority of people in the United States are completely accepting of the official message:

  • They believe that the government will be there to save them in all circumstances.
  • They don’t question or inquire. They simply accept what they are told.
  • They don’t share our fears that something big is on the horizon.
  • They exist in a bubble and don’t look at the bigger picture.
  • They refuse to prepare for bad things because they honestly don’t believe it’s possible that those things will happen.

Most people like us (those who are aware, the self-sufficient minority) watch less TV than the masses. Some of us watch no TV at all. I watch a few shows on Netflix or Amazon Prime, but we don’t have cable TV with its commercials and *cough* news. We have other things to do, things that will help us when there are soldiers on the streets “for our own protection.” Things that will help our kids survive when the store shelves are empty and the majority relies on government rations to live (if they behave well enough to get one that is, and behave they will because hunger is a massive motivator to do as you’re told.)

Even if you have a tendency to be mind-controlled, it’s possible to snap out of it. I wasn’t always the tinfoil-clad blogger you see before you today. When I was in my early 20s, I truly did believe that the government agencies like the EPA and the FDA were looking out for our best interests, that food or medicine wouldn’t be sold if it was harmful, and that schools truly were in the business of educating children.  Most of us have to shake off our early training at the hands of the education system and the television.

And sort of like in the movie, The Matrix, if you can get someone to swallow the red pill, they become a lot less willing to believe whatever they’re fed.

Subliminal messaging can change people’s views, can change the way they think, can change what they want to eat, what car they want to buy, maybe even how they vote. All you need is the cash to get your message out there and buy a few split seconds of screen time.

It can sow the seeds that make acceptance of abnormal and dangerous situations easier. It can teach people not to question and to be good little sheep.

Sitting for hours in front of the television mindlessly watching the drivel produced by companies who call it “entertainment” is brainwashing people and turning them into idiots, making the best current day example of predictive programming the movie Idiocracy.

All you have to do is look around and you’ll see that it’s here.

What if you don’t want to live in an alternate reality created by the media?

First of all, this doesn’t even touch on other influences like the ridiculous fear culture perpetuated in our schools or the Marxist indoctrination in our colleges and universities, where they teach you that gender isn’t a real thing and you get to pick whenever you want. There are many more players in the alternate reality game than just the media, but you have to start somewhere.

My advice for those who don’t want to live in an alternate reality:

  • Turn off the TV.
  • Vet your sources.
  • Try to get several points of view – even the ones you don’t like. The truth lies somewhere in between.
  • Look out for talking points that are used ad infinitum like “deep state” or “with an abundance of caution”  or “the Russians.” The things you hear repeated over and over are repeated for a reason – to brainwash you.

In the famous words of Fox Mulder, “The truth is out there.” You just have to seek it diligently.

Trump Watershed Budget

Trump Watershed Budget | Trump-budget | Economy & Business Government Trump

You have never seen an attempt to change direction in the Federal juggernaut, as outlined in the Trump budget to revamp discretionary spending. Bob Adelmann of The New American provides an apt appraisal in Trump’s “Blueprint” Budget Is a Policy Statement; Real Budget to Follow. For a full reading of this framework review the White House document. OMB Director Mick Mulvaney, has delivered a bold variation from the normal accommodation to the political careerists and influence peddlers.

No doubt this America First departure from the status quo is a shock to the entire composition of elites, radical factions and pseudo intellectuals, alike. The vehement hatred for all things Trump, has hit heights previously unknown in domestic politics. As disappointing as such hysteria has been, it is not a surprise when one analyzes the nature of the power political system.

For Trump supporters, voting for a Republican majority in Congress was billed as the way to reverse the all powerful and intrusive dictates from the central government. Reducing funding for programs and agencies was once a cardinal objective for conservatives. Beyond this simple goal was the restrained aspiration of balancing the budget with the definitive goal of reducing the national debt, having the ultimate purpose of eliminating that debt.

Illustrating the timidity of the weak kneed RINO cowards, GOP Lawmakers Get Skittish Over Trump Budget Cuts. Now let’s be honest, the country club Republicans are prisoners of K Street and the corporate globalists. Many are closet “Never Trump” opposition within the Republican Party.

What resistance developed during the last campaign cycle as manifested in Establishment Rule still in Control, continues in the current Congress. The disconnect between the hard pressed working class with the privileged ruling caste of cabal criminals has not been reversed with the inauguration of Donald Trump to the Presidency. Only the sheer will of a determined businessman offers any optimism of what might be possible to achieve.

When asking, Can the Swamp Really be Drained?, the answer can only be judged against the realities of the self-induced omnipotent government culture that resists any restrains on their ability to spend more public money.

While this Trump proposed budget does not reduce the debt, it is intended not to increase it. This is really a modest attempt to adjust internal expenditures among some agencies that have resisted any intrusion into their fiefdoms of control. Nor is this a perfect allocation in reductions. The much needed roll back in the State Department, especially in foreign aid funding is long overdue. However, as reported in Trump’s budget cuts State Dept, keeps foreign aid to Israel, shows the reluctance in including the 800 pound gorilla in sharing the pain.

“The blueprint released by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) “provides $3.1 billion to meet the security assistance commitment to Israel, currently at an all-time high [sic]; ensuring that Israel has the ability to defend itself from threats and maintain its Qualitative Military Edge.”

Maintaining sacred orthodox expenditures is an obvious bridge too far to cross. But when Trump’s Budget Meets Bipartisan Opposition and Big Sequestration Hurdle, the prophetic words of Mick Mulvaney, sums up the method used to compile the budget that the disloyal opposition has sure intense abhorrence for a pro national president.

“In fact, we wrote it using the president’s own words,” Mulvaney said. “We went through his speeches, we went through articles that have been written about his policies, we talked to him, and we wanted to know what his policies were, and we turned those policies into numbers. So you have an ‘America First’ candidate, you have an ‘America First’ budget.”

Increasing the Defense Department by $54 billion cuts both ways. America First is as much about asserting a strong national defense, while maintaining a non-interventionist foreign policy overseas. The perennial dichotomy that the bipartisan war party defends to the death has the need to deploy troops to garrison compounds for expanding the empire. Never is there a reflection, much less a revamping of the foreign policy that has American treasure and blood protecting the globalist agenda of worldwide dominance.

It is a given that the libtards would cry foul when their favorite social program gets the axe, but why should any honest advocate for a smaller government and limited federal governance join the defiance to the Trump budget? As The Hill writes in Shutdown politics return to the Senate, the Senator Schumer minority leader is setting the stage for another pompous threat to obstruct the Trump administration.

“If Republicans insist on inserting poison pill riders such as defunding Planned Parenthood, building a border wall, or starting a deportation force, they will be shutting down the government and delivering a severe blow to our economy,” they wrote in the letter.”

This intimidation that comes from a party that refuses to timely approve Trump appointees to key agency slots can only offer an obstructionist opposition. So when the Bleeding Heart Limousine crew of hypocrites want to trigger a convoluted guilt ridden scare, you should look them straight in the eye and explain why they are such frauds.

You can still get to heaven if you support Trump’s proposed budget nicely describes the proper context.

Mr. Trump, in his budget, proposes to eliminate the Community Development Block Grant program, which partially funds Meals on Wheels. As Scott Shackford at Reason, wrote, “The big problem here is that ‘We help fund Meals on Wheels’ is how the government sells the CDBG program, but how it actually operates in the cities and communities that get the money is far different. The CDBG program is chock full of cronyism and corruption and should be eliminated. Much like the corrupt city redevelopment agencies, what actually ends up happening is that this money gets funneled by politicians to friends with connections for various projects that aren’t really about helping the poor at all.”

So what is the correct analysis and balance that the Trump administration should strive to achieve? ZeroHedge looks at Trump’s Budget A First Step Toward De-Politicizing Science.

“It should go without saying that scientific research is a vital part of civilized society, allowing for technological breakthroughs that dramatically increase the quality of life for mankind as a whole. It is precisely because of its great importance that it should not be politicized by being influenced by politicians and government bureaucrats. The inherent problems of government’s inability to efficiently allocate scarce resources doesn’t change when the subject is science, so government research can suffer with the same issues of waste, fraud, and abuse that regularly haunt other programs.

While his proposed budget is a solid first step toward de-politicizing science, unfortunately the increase in Pentagon spending means that military-related research will continue to enjoy the perks of government privilege. Resources that could have been dedicated to serving the wants and needs of the public will instead be allocated to building ever more expensive weapons for the world’s most powerful military (regardless of its actual performance).

As long as Trump continues to view the military-industrial complex as a sacred cow, he won’t make real progress in draining the swamp.”

This is the rational assessment, but the Beltway culture will never allow a serious debate on scaling back the role the federal government plays in the national economy. When you have an untouchable technocratic bloc of bureaucratic power grabbers, entrenched into unaccountable government agencies, just how is it possible to clean out unnecessary programs and useless  departments?

The culture of collectivists has burrowed themselves into the federal money machine, that defraud the taxpayer and refuse to provide a utilitarian function. Seldom does one get such clear proof of exactly the hubris from elected legislators and public officials, who are agents of maintaining the corrupt political system. If your representative objects to the proposed cuts in EPA, State, Agriculture, Labor, HHS, Commerce, Education, HUD and Transportation Departments; they are part of the crony establishment cartel.

If the Trump administration is blocked from making these prudent budget reductions, who and when, will anyone ever achieve even a modest reform of the deficit addict disease that has plagued our government for decades?

The “I Love DC” society was defeated in the last presidential election. Even so, the vast majority of incumbent legislators were also returned to office. By comparison, few are true Trump allies. Add into this equation that many of the Trump appointees are dedicated politicians that are still comfortable with the old ways of grinding out the sausage of receptacle bribes and favors.

Following the way the GOP puts their imprimatur on this budget process will disclose to the faithful, just how difficult it will be for President Trump to domesticate the vulture scavengers from their feeding habit ways. Mick Mulvaney has presented a worthy budget that deserves public support. The Trump America First budget is a positive start on purging the corrupt system of much of the wasteful influence from several harmful agencies.

Coverup of Humanitarian Disaster in Mosul

Coverup of Humanitarian Disaster in Mosul | Iraq-Mosul-Syria | War Propaganda World News

US-led terror-bombing along with Iraqi ground forces are systematically destroying the city, not liberating it as claimed.

Western media scoundrels and international NGOs are ignoring a humanitarian disaster far worse than what affected East Aleppo.

Government and allied forces, greatly aided by Russian airpower, saved the lives of tens of thousands of defenseless Aleppo residents, held hostage by US-supported al-Nusra terrorists.

Media scoundrels misportrayed heroic efforts as aggression. Big Lies substituted for hard truths. Liberating Aleppo was a glorious triumph, one Syrians will long remember and commemorate, grateful to Russia for its vital help.

Last fall through December, John Kerry and other US officials disgracefully accused Russia and Syria of war crimes, ignoring horrendous ones committed by US forces in all its war theaters – by terror-bombing, special forces and other combat troops on the ground, along with terrorist fighters recruited as imperial foot soldiers.

Media scoundrels ignore genocidal high crimes committed by America and its rogue allies.

Last month, Sergey Lavrov “remind(ed) (his) Western counterparts about…the humanitarian” disaster in Mosul – “much worse than it was in eastern Aleppo,” he stressed, yet getting little or no Western media attention.

Before fighting escalated in recent weeks, Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said “(t)he humanitarian situation continues to degrade.”

“People are running out of food. And the most terrifying thing is that no one knows what is to be further. The situation is on the verge of a humanitarian catastrophe.”

US-led Western nations are “out of touch with reality,” she added. Escalating ground fighting and US-led terror-bombing made things much worse.

Before its capture by US-supported ISIS fighters in mid-2014, Mosul had around 2.5 million residents. Less than one million remain, held hostage by terrorists.

Routes to the city were cut off months ago. Residents lack access to food, potable water, medical care and electricity. Conditions are dire.

Humanitarian groups haven’t entered besieged parts of the city in over two years. Desperate residents aren’t being helped.

During the battle for Aleppo, Russia and Syria made heroic efforts to supply humanitarian aid to trapped residents.

America, its rogue allies and the UN supplied nothing – nor are they aiding Mosul residents in need.

Indiscriminate terror-bombing and ground fighting continues causing large numbers of casualties, including a devastating toll on civilians, massacred in cold blood, media scoundrels ignoring the carnage – portraying mass slaughter and destruction as a liberating struggle.

According to Norwegian Refugee Council’s Becky Bakr Abdulla, “families…managing to come out are completely traumatized.”

“They’ve got nothing left. No homes…nothing. Their children have not attended school for over two years.”

“(T)hey’ve lost many of their loved ones and there are many, many examples of people who have actually died on their way out.” They never “made it to safety.”

Western media and the international community largely ignore the devastating humanitarian disaster, Abdullah added – shocking contempt for the lives and welfare of devastated people, suffering enormously because of US imperial war.

Interviewed by Sputnik News, a woman in the Hamam al Alil refugee camp appealed for desperately needed humanitarian aid. Without it, people “are going to die,” she said.

Camp conditions are deplorable. “We have no sanitation. The garbage needs to be removed. The water is very dirty. We can’t drink it.”

Conditions for Mosul residents remaining trapped is much worse. Terror-bombing and ground fighting continues taking many lives.

Maria Zakharova expressed outrage over the “hushing up of what is happening” – devastating fighting along with dire humanitarian conditions.

Since fighting began last October, around 100,000 residents managed to flee the city, risking their lives to do it.

An estimated 750,000 remain trapped. The US-led campaign in Syria is about regime change.

In Iraq, there’s none to change. Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi serves as a convenient US puppet, supporting its imperial ravaging.

Nuclear Engineer: Fukushima Meltdown Could Last 250,000+ Years (VIDEO)

Nuclear Engineer: Fukushima Meltdown Could Last 250,000+ Years (VIDEO) | Fukushima-2-768x359 | Environment Multimedia Sleuth Journal Special Interests World News

By: The Voice of Reason |

If there’s one thing that we can trust governments everywhere to do, it’s to obscure and obfuscate the truth to make themselves look good. Massive global debt-fueled bubble? No problem! Dangerous radiation levels still present from the Fukushima incident? Fake news! Our government has been proven time and time again to be guilty of covering up the truth, and the Japanese government is no different.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at something that the Japanese government and the American government are desperately trying to downplay – the full severity of the Fukushima incident. Until today, the location of the nuclear cores is still unknown and the Pacific ocean continues to be contaminated by radiation. One nuclear engineer estimates that the effects of this disaster could last for 250,000 years. And what are the world governments doing about it? Nothing of course, but then again since when were they overly worried about the plight of the common citizen.

Your News Wire Reports:

An eminent nuclear engineer claims that the triple meltdown at Fukushima is the world’s worst ever cataclysm, and is likely to continue affecting wildlife and humans for the next 250,000 years.

According to former nuclear engineer, Anrie Gunderson, scientists were not prepared for the explosive radioactive contamination the Fukushima disaster unleashed on the world.

Over and over, people ask me about what happened inside the plants and what is still happening inside with robots fried by radiation, corium that can’t be found, and massive amounts of radioactivity migrating to sensitive estuaries, aquifers, contaminating all the ground water, and polluting the Pacific Ocean… No one has discovered where the nuclear cores have disappeared to.  The $400,000,000 “ice wall” continues to leak… Moreover, the cover-up continues, with the health effects from radiation being camouflaged as stress related illnesses…

I decided to share the photographs I took last year in Japan… these photos cannot adequately convey the scientific and human impact of the worst industrial cataclysm in the history of the world… [R]adioactive isotopes will be extreme hazards for 250,000 years, of course no one knows when it will end.

Enenews.com reports:

BBC Newsday interview with nuclear engineer Arnie Gundersen, Feb 28, 2017:

“As they get in [the containment vessel at Fukushima Daiichi Unit 2], they’re finding that combination of hot steam — these are not just radioactive chemicals, but it’s a toxic mix of chemicals that are going to react with the steel. 

So there’s rust and hunks of nuclear fuel lying around, and steam, and it’s raining all the time because of the condensation. I think it’s about as close to hell as I could imagine.”

Arjun Makhijani, nuclear engineer, Feb 17, 2017:

Yes, so the bottom of the reactor under the reactor there is a grating and then under the grating there’s the concrete floor, and what this robot discovered… the grating was deformed and broken.

So, now it appears that some of the molten fuel may have gone through the grating…

[H]igh radiation turns into heat, so the whole environment around the molten fuel is thermally very hot, and so whether it is going through the concrete, whether it is under the concrete, I don’t know that we have a good grip on that issue… Fukushima is possibly the longest running, continuous industrial disaster in history.

It has not stopped because the risks are still there.

In the following video, Anonymous brings some very scary facts to light as it relates to the Fukushima nuclear disaster 6 years ago. As usual, the Mainstream Media is worthless… The Fukushima nuclear plant has been pouring 300 tones of radioactive water every day, since the accident happened 6 years ago.

Life is already disappearing on the seas, our bodies will also be polluted with radiation, that will cause us countless cancers and diseases. Life on Earth is being threatened, and surely, many of us, will have early deaths as a consequence of this radiation. Wake up!

Michael Snyder writes:

Six years ago, an absolutely devastating tsunami caused a triple meltdown at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power facility.  It was the worst environmental disaster in all of human history, and even though six years have passed since that time, nobody knows where the three melted cores are.  Just recently, authorities believe that they spotted some melted fuel underneath reactor 2, but even from a distance the level of nuclear radiation that was detected was being described as “unimaginable”

Essentially what we are talking about are three enormous “dirty bombs” that are continuously emitting tremendous amounts of nuclear radiation into the air, water and soil.  Some of the radioactive elements that are being released have half-lives that are measured in tens of thousands of years, and so the poisonous effect of these “dirty bombs” could potentially be with us for generation after generation.

Personally, I don’t know why the big mainstream news outlets in the U.S. are almost entirely ignoring Fukushima these days.  Fox News did a story on the “unimaginable” radiation at Fukushima just a few days ago, but that was about it.

To me, it is certainly newsworthy that nuclear radiation inside reactor 2 at Fukushima is at the highest level ever recorded

Radiation levels inside a damaged reactor at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant have hit a record high, and are the worst since the plant suffered a triple meltdown nearly six years ago. The latest readings now pose a serious challenge as officials prepare to dismantle the stricken facility.

Radiation levels inside the containment vessel of reactor No. 2 at Fukushima has reached 530 sieverts per hour—a figure described by experts as “unimaginable.”

Previously, the highest level of radiation measured at Fukushima was 73 sieverts per hour, and just a small fraction of that amount would be fatal to most humans

Needless to say, this plant is not fit for human life. Just one dose of a single sievert is enough to cause radiation sickness and nausea. Exposure to four to five sieverts would kill about half of those exposed to it within a month, while a single dose of 10 sieverts is enough to kill a person within weeks.

At 530 sieverts per hour, the radiation is so intense that even robots can only last for a couple of hours in that environment.  The Japanese hope to eventually remove the melted fuel from these reactors someday, but first they have to figure out if it is even possible.

And the truth is that the level of radiation in reactor 2 may actually be far higher than 530 sieverts per hour.  That is because the recent reading was taken “some distance from the melted fuel”

The 530 sievert reading was recorded some distance from the melted fuel, so in reality it could be 10 times higher than recorded, said Hideyuki Ban, co-director of Citizens’ Nuclear Information Center.

Experts are also warning that the levels of radiation may be much higher than 530 sieverts per hour in reactors 1 and 3.  Nobody knows, because the melted fuel in those reactors has not even been located yet.

Even though so much time has gone by, there is still very much an urgency to this crisis.  In a newly published article, Mike Adams of Natural News explained why this is the case

In effect, Fukushima has become the world’s largest dirty bomb, and the remaining fuel rods could explode (achieve criticality) at any moment. Even right now, the radiation is so intense that robots built to explore the wreckage can only survive for a few hours before their circuits are destroyed. Thus, there’s almost no scenario in which Japan, Tepco or anybody in the world figures out how to clean up the wreckage, reclaim the melting fuel rods and reestablish control over the nuclear reactions that are still ongoing.

You can’t even successfully build a containment vessel on top of it all because the melting nuclear fuel has already burned a massive hole in the floor and is melting its way into the ground water.
What most people don’t understand is that the melted nuclear fuel under Fukushima is going to be with us for a very, very long time.  Some of the fuel rods contained plutonium-239, and plutonium-239 has a half-life of approximately 24,000 years

Do they think a one-meter hole magically appears in nuclear containment vessels due to random chance? No, it’s melting fuel rods, you morons. And some of that fuel is MOX fuel, which contains plutonium-239 that boasts a half life of 24,000 years. So sometime in the year 26000 A.D. the Fukushima nightmare will be HALF as toxic as it is right now. What a wonderful, progressive future to look forward to, eh?

Plutonium-239 is one of the most dangerous substances known to humanity.  As nuclear expert Steven C. Jones once explained, it would not take much plutonium-239 to kill every man, woman and child on the entire planet…

To give one an example of how lethal radiation is, one pound of plutonium evenly distributed into everyone’s lungs would kill every man, woman and child on Earth. There are literally “tons” of radioactive plutonium (among other radioactive elements) that have been released into the air and ocean environments since March 11th. Another critical fact to remember is that radioactive plutonium, for example, remains lethal (killing life) for thousands years as it has a half-life of 24,000 years. Some other radioactive elements such as uranium have a half-life of 4.47 billion years.

And remember, more radioactive material is being released from Fukushima every single day.  The following comes from an interview with Kevin Kamps, the radioactive waste monitor at Beyond Nuclear…

There are claims that “it’s all contained, don’t worry about it.” It is indisputable that there is a daily flow of radioactively contaminated groundwater into the ocean. The figures something like 80,000 gallons per day of relatively low-level radioactive waste water. Then you’ve got those storage tanks – we’re talking 800,000 tons of highly radioactive water stored in tanks. Every day they pour a hundred tons of water on each of these three melted down cores. Sometimes they lose those tanks. They leak, they overflow – it is an ongoing catastrophe.

Are you starting to understand how serious this is?

Once nuclear material escapes from Fukushima, it literally gets distributed all over the planet.

That means that it is getting into our air, our water and our food supply.

JAPAN DECLARES CRISIS AS FUKUSHIMA REACTOR BEGINS FALLING INTO THE PACIFIC OCEAN AND RADIATION LEVELS SOAR TO NUMBERS NEVER BEFORE DREAMED OF BY MANKIND.

The latest developments at Japan’s Fukushima reactor have been described as “unimaginable”and “unprecedented.” Officials state that damages at the reactor are “far worse than previously thought”. Melted fuel has come in contact with underground water and the melted core appears spread over an “extensive area”.

Radiation levels at the Fukushima reactor have also soared to their highest levels since the 2011 disaster. The radiation levels inside the containment vessel of the number 2 reactor at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex stood at 530 sieverts per hour, the highest since the 2011 disaster, the plant operator said on Thursday. Previously the highest radiation level monitored in the interior of the reactor had been 73 sieverts per hour.

The new radiation levels have been described by some experts as “unimaginable,” because that number is so much higher than any emergency levels ever imagined, even as a worst, worst, worst, worst, case scenario. “Uncontrollable fission” is continuing under the site, and there is no end in sight.

 

And I find it extremely interesting that the EPA was moving to dramatically raise the “safe limits” on radioactivity in our drinking water right at the end of the Obama administration.  The following comes from a Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility press release dated December 22, 2016

“Following Japan’s Fukushima meltdown in 2011, EPA’s claims that no radioactivity could reach the U.S. at levels of concern were contradicted by its own rainwater measurements showing contamination from Fukushima throughout the U.S. well above Safe Drinking Water Act limits. In reaction, EPA prepared new limits 1000s of times higher than even the Fukushima rainwater because ‘EPA experienced major difficulties conveying to the public that the detected levels…were not of immediate concern for public health.’”

Why in the world would the EPA do that?

Here are some more of the details

The documents obtained by PEER revealed that the EPA plans to raise maximum allowable limits of iodine-131, cobalt-60 and calcium-45 to more than 10,000 times the levels allowed under the Safe Drinking Water Act. Others would be hundreds or thousands of times higher under the new guidelines.

The agency’s justification for withholding the new proposed limits from the public until after the proposal had been adopted was that it wanted to “avoid confusion.”

Radioactive material is also getting into our food supply.  If you love to eat fish this next item may be a bummer, because it is being reported that radiation from Fukushima was recently found in salmon off the coast of Oregon…

Fish contaminated by radiation from the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan have been detected 6,000 miles away of the US west coast.

Salmon carrying traces of caesium 134 particles – the so-called fingerprint of the Fukushima – were found by researchers in the seas off Oregon.

One we eat something that has been contaminated, radioactive material will often migrate to key organs in our body, and once it is there it can poison us indefinitely.  In a previous article I included a quote from author Helen Caldicott, the author of “Crisis Without End: The Medical and Ecological Consequences of the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe“.  I am including the quote once again in this article because it is absolutely imperative that we all understand the danger that we are facing…

Internal radiation, on the other hand, emanates from radioactive elements which enter the body by inhalation, ingestion, or skin absorption. Hazardous radionuclides such as iodine-131, caesium 137, and other isotopes currently being released in the sea and air around Fukushima bio-concentrate at each step of various food chains (for example into algae, crustaceans, small fish, bigger fish, then humans; or soil, grass, cow’s meat and milk, then humans). After they enter the body, these elements – called internal emitters – migrate to specific organs such as the thyroid, liver, bone, and brain, where they continuously irradiate small volumes of cells with high doses of alpha, beta and/or gamma radiation, and over many years, can induce uncontrolled cell replication – that is, cancer. Further, many of the nuclides remain radioactive in the environment for generations, and ultimately will cause increased incidences of cancer and genetic diseases over time.

The amount of cesium-137 that has been released at Fukushima is equivalent to hundreds of Hiroshima bombs.

But because we can’t see, touch, taste or hear the danger, to many people it may not seem real.

Nuclear radiation is a silent killer, and unless a miracle happens the consequences of the Fukushima nuclear disaster will be felt for generations to come.

NOW…  WHAT ABOUT U.S. REACTORS LEAKING?

YES! U.S. REACTORS!

This is absolutely disgusting to read about. When a radiation leak happens in Japan the whole world hears about it, but when not one but two radiation leaks happen in the United States no one does. There are radiation leak reports in Miami and New York, why is no one talking about it?

With a little digging, it’s not hard to find multiple sites around the U.S. which have been reported to leak, but since our grossly corrupt mainstream media doesn’t cover “real” news, and instead only acts as the propaganda arm for the Democrat Party, Americans remain clueless about many things they have every right to expect the media to report on. The following article and videos focus on the nuclear facilities located at Indian Point, which is just upriver from NYC, and the Turkey Point Nuclear Generating Station which sits adjacent to Biscayne National Park, Florida.

In the first video, you’ll learn that the Indian Point plant is located upriver from NYC, and it’s a serious threat to the whole region, according to watchdog group Riverkeeper. “It’s a disaster waiting to happen and it should be shut down,” Paul Gallay, president of Riverkeeper, told CBS News. Indian Point has been operating for around 40 years, and generates about 25 percent of the electric power for Westchester and New York City. The plant, owned by Entergy, is leaking tritium, a radioactive substance. 

Three of the forty Indian Point wells showed an increase in radioactive material, and one of the wells showed a 65,000 percent increase. Entergy states that this leak will not harm local inhabitants, as the groundwater is located on their property. John J. Kelly, former director of licensing for Indian Point and a certified healthy physicist, said that tritium is a radioactive form of hydrogen that is found naturally. “It’s more of a regulatory problem than an environmental problem,” said Kelly.

In the second video, you’ll learn that the University of Miami has found that the Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant, located just south of Miami, has caused levels of tritium, a radioactive isotope, in Biscayne Bay to spike to 200-times higher than normal levels.

Turkey Point is not the sole leaky plant in America. Last year, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo acknowledged that the state’s Indian Point Nuclear facility was leaking tritium into groundwater. Meanwhile, The Vermont Department of Health has noted ongoing investigations into leaks at Vermont Yankee since 2010, while New York’s FitzPatrick Plant has been “plagued by water leaks” in 2014, Gizmodo notes.

Awarness Act at Humans are Free reports:

The University of  Miami has found that the Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant, located just South of Miami, has caused levels of tritium, a radioactive isotope produced by nuclear reactors, in Biscayne Bay to spike to 200-times higher than normal levels. 

This would confirm suspicions that Turkey Point’s aging canals are leaking into the nearby national park.  

The site’s cooling canals, which are the part of the facility that appears to be leaking the radiation, are currently permitted to operate at 104 degrees, the hottest in the nation.

“This is one of several things we were very worried about,” South Miami Mayor Philip Stoddard, who is also a biological sciences professor at Florida International University, told the Miami New Times

“You would have to work hard to find a worse place to put a nuclear plant, right between two national parks and subject to hurricanes and storm surge.”

Samples of the water at various depths and sites around the power plant showed elevated levels of salt, ammonia, phosphorous and tritium.

“We now know exactly where the pollution is coming from, and we have a tracer that shows it is in the national park,” said Laura Reynolds, an environmental consultant who is working with the Tropical Audubon Society and the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, which intended to file the lawsuit. 

“We are worried about the marine life there and the future of Biscayne Bay.”

While all of this should sound alarms, nobody especially people who could do something about seems to care.

“What is happening at Turkey Point is a real danger to us, to our water supply,” said Jose’ Javier Rodriguez

“The fact that there is salt being dumped into the aquifer and the fact that there are contaminants in Biscayne Bay really should have sounded an alarm. But as of yet, we’re still waiting for state regulators to step up.”

But do not let us make you think this is the only leak in the United States. Last month, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo acknowledged that the state’s Indian Point Nuclear facility was leaking tritium into groundwater.

New York governor Andrew Cuomo recently called for an investigation after Indian Point, a nuclear power plant on the Hudson River reported a leak of radioactive material flowing into the groundwater. 

Samples taken from the local groundwater show that contamination levels are 80% higher than previous samples, prompting experts to claim this leak is spreading in “a disaster waiting to happen” and calling for the plant to be shut down completely.

Cuomo has encouraged Entergy to shut down Indian Point, but to keep its other plants further upstate open.

Entergy responded with:

“While elevated tritium in the ground onsite is not in accordance with our standards, there is no health or safety consequence to the public, Releases are more than a thousand times below federal permissible limits. The tritium did not affect any source of drinking water onsite or offsite.”

The Indian Point nuclear plant is located on the Hudson River, approximately 25 miles North of NYC, and serves the electrical needs of an estimated 2 million people.

In January while preparing  a reactor for refueling, workers accidentally spilled some of the contaminated water, containing the radioactive hydrogen isotope tritium, causing a massive radiation spike in groundwater monitoring wells, with one well’s radioactivity increasing by as much as 65,000 percent.

And according to an assessment by the New York Department of State as part of its Coastal Zone Management Assessment contains a variety of radioactive elements such as strontium-90, cesium-137, cobalt-60, and nickel-63, and isn’t limited to tritium contamination.

Some even say this leak is likely worse than Fukushima.

THE REAL QUESTION “SHOULD” BE…

Nuclear Engineer: Fukushima Meltdown Could Last 250,000+ Years (VIDEO) | Nukes | Environment Multimedia Sleuth Journal Special Interests World News
CAN NUCLEAR PLANTS LIKE THIS OPERATE FOR 80 YEARS SAFELY?​

According to both companies, the leaks haven’t contaminated drinking water and do not pose a threat to human health.

Tritium, while less potent than other substances like cesium or strontium or radium, can be harmful in high enough concentrations, even lethal.

The New York Incident made headlines across the region, anti-nuclear groups warned the state was “flirting with catastrophe,” and Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered an investigation into the matter.

The United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission has repeatedly weakened federal regulations to allow plants to keep operating, despite thousands of problems ranging from corroded pipes to cracked concrete and radioactive leaks.

People continuously ignore problems like this to avoid public panic, but things like this cannot be ignored forever.

If people keep ignoring the news that is right in front of their faces the world is going to begin going downhill faster than it already is.
