Thousands Of Tons Of Radioactive Fukushima Water To Be Dumped In Pacific As Independent Testing Banned

The Japanese government is refusing to allow independent testing of contaminated water found in the nuclear power plant at Fukushima, which has been leaking ever since a tsunami and earthquake devastatingly hit the facility in March 2011.

The decision not to allow independent testing was allegedly arrived to over “safety concerns” in relation to the storing and transportation of the radioactive water.

Other organizations are not permitted to carry out tests of the water…If we are going to allow external organizations to test the treated water then we would need to go through very strict procedures and due process because that water is contaminated. If it is taken outside this facility, then there need to be strict regulations. – Hideki Yagi, a spokesman for the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO)

However, independent environmental groups including Greenpeace and Citizens’ Nuclear Information Centre (CNIC) assert that this is indeed a cover-up against the true level of contamination in the water used to cool three damaged reactors.

There would need to be lots of checks because there is a lot of water, but right now it looks very much to the outside world that they are trying to cover something up – as they have a long history of doing. – Hideyuki Ban, co-director of CNIC

Although the contaminated water is deemed too dangerous to test for potency, the government of Japan and TEPCO both regard it as not too dangerous to dump into the Pacific Ocean as they likely plan to do as soon as their storage tanks reach maximum capacity in the summer of 2020.

The amount of contaminated water at Fukushima is astounding. On top of an undisclosed amount, which we still don’t know the potency of, ground water continues to seep into the basement levels of the facility with an additional 120 tons accumulating every day, according to the London Telegraph.

The decision not to allow third-party testing of the contaminated water at Fukushima is not only causing the public to lose faith in the government’s ability to safely manage emergencies, but whether Japanese citizens can trust them to tell the truth about the dangers they face as a country.

Tepco has lost trust across society in Japan as well as in the international community, including in South Korea, and providing samples for analysis would be in their best interests – unless they are covering something up…so providing samples that could verify their reports on content would go some way to demonstrating their commitment to transparency. – Shaun Burnie, Senior Nuclear Specialist for Greenpeace

In 2016, the Japan government estimated the cost of the Fukushima disaster to be about 21.5 trillion yen ($188 billion), nearly doubled compared to their previous projection of 11 trillion yen in 2013.

In 2012, exactly one year after the disaster, 79.6% of polled Japanese citizens favored phasing out nuclear power altogether. This led to the then-prime minister Yoshihiko Noda announcing a plan to phase out Japanese nuclear power completely by 2040. However, current prime minister Shinzo Abe walked back that statement in 2016, announcing that Japan “cannot do without” nuclear power as anywhere from 3.1-4.7% of Japan’s electricity is supplied by nuclear. By 2030, the government that number to be between 20-22%.

Since Abe’s government took power in late 2012, they have given the green light to several nuclear power plants, including the Onagawa reactor which was also damaged by the earthquake on March 11, 2011.

They claim that the disposal of Fukushima’s radioactive water will have only a “small” impact on humans, but how do we know that’s true without independent testing? How do we know what impact the radiation will have on marine life, fish, and in turn, humans who eat fish caught near the dumping site?

The Japanese government and nuclear companies want you to believe that what they’re doing is completely safe, “but that has to be full of caveats because the way that information has been presented is confusing and not transparent so ordinary people do not understand and cannot make informed decisions,” says Azby Brown, lead researcher for Safecast Japan, a Tokyo-based group which monitors radiation.

Human workers forced to work in highly radioactive area to topple dangerous Fukushima exhaust stack

Sunday, December 29, 2019 by: Tracey Watson

(Natural News) Back in March of 2011, the province of Fukushima, Japan, was struck by a series of devastating events that culminated in one of the worst nuclear disasters in history. The area was hit first by a massive earthquake, and then by a 15-metre (50-foot) tsunami. That massive tsunami, in turn, disabled the power supply and cooling functions at the Daiichi nuclear power plant, which finally triggered a nuclear accident on the 11th of March that was rated a 7 on the INES scale. Four nuclear reactors were destroyed, and clean-up work has been ongoing ever since.

Experts estimate that the task of decommissioning the plant and cleaning up the site will take upwards of four decades and cost billions of yen to complete.

In August of this year, news agencies reported that work had commenced at the plant to dismantle a highly contaminated, unstable exhaust stack. Before the disaster, the 110m (360 foot) high exhaust stack was used for the No. 1 and 2 reactors, and dismantling it is seen as a crucial part of the decommissioning work.

The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), responsible for getting the cleanup work done, decided that the dismantling work would have to be done via crane and remote control because of the incredibly high levels of radiation surrounding the stack. Even at the base of the stack radiation levels have been deemed to be too high for humans to work in.

Then, on December 3, Japanese newspapers began reporting that people had nonetheless been sent up to the top of the exhaust stack to cut the cylinder body with power tools, after the cutting device used to cut the cylinder via remote control had become unstable and emergency action had to be taken. (Related: Fukushima — Storage tanks are full, radioactive waste to be dumped straight into the ocean.)

Workers exposed to extremely high levels of radiation

As reported by Strange Sounds, after the robotic remote-controlled equipment failed, humans had to be sent in to assist with cutting the cylinder body:

Some weird stuff is happening at the TEPCO’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant right now. While Japan has decided to drop radioactive water in the ocean, Tepco sent humans to repair where robots failed. …

The workers at the top of 110-m high Fukushima Dai-ichi vent stack were exposed to an estimated 810 ?Sv, making this action an emergency response.

This, despite the fact that officials had assured workers and the public that radiation levels would not exceed 300 ?Sv. (Related: Is Fukushima radiation affecting the West Coast? Consider these signs.)

According to Japanese sources, work initially commenced late in the afternoon of the 3rd, when three workers were lifted by crane to the cutting device located at the top of the cylinder. The workers were busy for around three hours, all the while wearing protective masks to cover their faces. Work had to be suspended in the evening over concerns about strong winds that had come up.

The following morning, another three workers climbed up to the cutting device where they refueled the generator. Within 4.5 hours, exposure levels had increased to 0.47 mSv.

TEPCO plans to cut the cylinder body of the exhaust pipe into sections of between 2 and 4 meters at a time, and estimates that its size will have halved by March 2020.

Since TEPCO officials were initially adamant that humans should not be involved in this work at all because of the dangerously high radiation levels involved, it can only be hoped that the robotic equipment will not fail again before the project is completed.

Japan: Radioactive Fukushima Water Release

Japan doesn’t want to share information about the release of Fukushima radioactive water in the Pacific Ocean.

And neighboring countries start to get really angry.

The Fukushima disaster is taking a new dimension, as Japan continues to hide important information about its plan of releasing radioactive water in the Pacific Ocean to neighboring countries.

The head of South Korea’s nuclear safety agency said on Wednesday, this ‘cover-up’ behavior was hampering the efforts made by Japan’s neighboring countries to minimize the impacts on their people and environement.

The owner of the Fukushima plant has been storing radioactive water in tanks at the site from the cooling pipes used to keep the fuel cores from melting since the meltdown in 2011. However, it will run out of storage space for the water in 2022.

The most probably consequence is that Japan will start dumping its radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean.

Fukushima Crisis and Nuclear Safety Concerns

Uhm Jae-sik, chairman of the Nuclear Safety and Security Commission, told Reuters: “We have been raising Japan’s radioactive water issue to the international community to minimize the impact … but as Japan hasn’t disclosed any specific plan and process we would need more details to run simulations and study.

In addition to the Fukushima crisis, safety concerns about nuclear energy have increased in South Korea following a 2012 scandal over the supply of faulty reactors parts with forged documents, prompting a series of shutdowns of nuclear reactors.

South Korea, the world’s fifth-largest user of nuclear power, operates 25 nuclear reactors, which produce about a third of the country’s total electricity. Of the 25 reactors, 10 are offline for maintenance. [Reuters, KHNP]  (Click to Source)

The Moment of Truth for the Oroville Dam-New Data Indicates the Coming Failure

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 – 12:10.

I spoke with Paul Preston late last night and he indicated that some people, downstream from the Oroville Dam have packed up and left because of the anticipated dam failure. I asked Paul Preston, “How close is the dam to failing?” Preston replied “It could go by this weekend”.. His comments, in part, are based upon the dire weather forecast in which intense rainfall is forecasted between Wednesday May 15 and Sunday, May 19th. This is significant because this could greatly add to the inflow and the outflow data which shows an extreme imbalance. And when we consider that the dam is 12 feet from overtopping, the danger multiplies exponentially. When any structure takes on more water, whether it be a ship or a dam, it is going to fail/sink.

Paul Preston and myself had an intense conversation about the timing of my next article on the Oroville Dam. We both decided that putting out this progress report on the conditions related to the dam was prudent because it could save lives, before it is too late.

This article is a progress report. However, it is also a warning to the residents in the Central Valley which lie below the Oroville Dam and are in the direct path of the torrent of water that will be released when the dam fails. Some are leaving and some more will undoubtedly leave before it is too late. However, we many unsuspecting potential victims that are oblivious to the present set of conditions. This article is aimed at getting the present state of the Dam in front of as many people in the Central Valley as possible.

NO SECURITY AT DAM: Grouting to Stop the Leaks at Dam

Paul Preston has previously related to me that the California State Government has a financial motivation to see the dam fail based on the following:

  • The State of California is broke and the state is quickly reaching a state of insolvency.
  • If the Oroville Dam fails, the state will instantly quality for over a billion dollars in federal disaster aid.
  • The state has motive to see the dam fail.

Based on these facts, one can understand why when security of the Oroville Dam disappeared for 32 hours, foul play would be suspected. We have already seen the state dynamite the earthen sides of the dam and the constant flow of trucks and their subsequent vibrations are of concern to the locals in that they believe that the activity could contribute to the failure of the dam. Subsequently, tension and emotions are running high.

The Data Speaks for Itself

The following chart, as one can clearly see, is from the State of California. In the preliminary comments, one can see that data reporting is problematic when it comes to the Oroville Dam. However, obtained records, listed below the comments indicates a serious problem what will eventually result in overtopping the dam. This in turn will lead to the ultimate failure of the spillway and the emergency spillway and the dam will fail.

I am told that the California data which speaks to “inflow” and “outflow” are being purposely understated. However, even if we use California’s state government figures, one can only conclude that disaster is coming and with the water level only 12 feet from the top, disaster is coming sooner rather than later.

Please note the highlighted columns. One can clearly see, that within the last 24 hours, the dam is clearly taking on more water than it can release. And with a compromised spillway, the failure of the dam will be hastened. Remember, the latest weather forecast is calling for heavy rain between Wednesday and Sunday.

Latest Photos From Paul Preston’s Agenda 21’s Radio Website

The latest photos provided by the California State Department of Water Resources shows increased leakage on the main Oroville Dam spillway. Two photos taken on the morning of May 12, 2019 show overnight leaks have NOT gone away but increased over the last week. Attempts by the DWR to use various injection solutions have failed to deter the water behind the spillway plates..

The photo above provided by the DWR was taken on the afternoon of May 11, 2019 shows less leakage. This is due to the afternoon sun drying out the leaks.   

The Risk of Inaction

A policy decision has been with regard to the threat. Every time an article is published on the CSS site, about the condition of the Oroville Dam, until failure, the dangers will be published along with any new information. The following represents the risk associated with a catastrophic dam failure.

  1. A breach of the dam would release a 30 foot wall of water traveling at 75 MPH.
  2. The escaping water would reach Sacramento within 45 minutes (long estimate).
  3. Over one million people lie in the path of the water.
  4. After the dam fails, there is not time to evacuate the population.
  5. Thirty percent of all American retail crosses this area from ports on the Pacific Ocean. The effect on the economy would be catastrophic.
  6. The Central Valley is one of the most bountiful agricultural areas in the world. No crops would grow for years. Combined with the Midwest flooding, famines will result and extreme food inflation.
  7. America would teeter upon collapse.

Above all else, lives are most important and the entire region should be evacuated. If the crisis is being overblown, why are there hundreds of trucks at the dam? Why are they working on the dam night and day. This is not normal maintenance and the data strongly indicates a disaster is at hand. Evacuation should be immediate. (Click to Source)

It Is No Longer a Matter of IF, but When the Oroville Dam Will Fail

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Sunday, May 5, 2019 – 14:05.

Since 2016, Paul Preston and myself have extensively covered the damage to the Oroville Dam and the danger that a dam failure would pose to the communities between Oroville and Sacramento. Despite photographic evidence, insider information and a team of observers that keep the dam under constant surveillance, Paul and myself have been called “fear mongers”. I will gladly wear that title if our efforts will culminate in the saving of lives.

In 2017, the water levels and subsequent spillage and leakage reached such a critical point that Butte County evacuate nearly 200,000 people. Despite this action by Butte County officials, Paul and myself were still called fear mongers, again. “Nothing to see here please move along”.

Relative Calm Back to Crisis

After a period of relative calm following the February 2017 evacuation, the situation at the dam has reach an unparalleled crisis which appears far worse than the conditions that led to the previous evacuation just over two years ago.

Below, there is a silent video which contains proprietary photos. Some of the photos come from the surrounding high ground, some from aerial surveillance with night vision equipment and some of the photos come from some unidentified person inside of the Department of Water Resources. How do I know there is insider involvement in this disclosure? Simple, there are parts of the dam that are off limits to the public where there are photos that are published on the Youtube video.

The dam is presently 13 feet from over-topping. However, this is not the main danger that could ultimately lead to a catastrophic dam failure.

The Identified Dangers

As previously identified on the CSS, the structural integrity of the spillway is severely compromised. The previously published photos clearly established the compromising of the structural integrity of the spillway. However, as we most recently exposed, the last line of defense, the OG Weir is in danger of over-topping because of the high levels of water on the Oroville Lake. This directly impacts the structural integrity of the dam. Additionally, the video shows that the upstream dams are at or near capacity. If anyone of these dams is compromised, the Oroville Dam will fail within 30 minutes and the spring run-off from the snow melt is under way.

The video below, derived from surveillance photos obtained between April 30-May 4th, clearly shows more severe cracks in the dam. Fissures are beginning to be observable.

Insider photos, taken inside the dam’s control room, shows a missing turbine. The dam was designed with six turbines each for expelling water (outflow) to balance inflow (eg snow runoff that would drive the water levels up. The video shows a chart that Paul and I have discussed before. The turbines are compromised to the point to where they can only expel about 10-11,000 cubic feet of water per second. The soon-to-be inflow water  levels approaching the dam is catalogued in public documents (shown on the video) between 19-2,400 cubic feet per second. This is a prescription for catastrophe. The COMBINATION of all these variables, mentioned and not mentioned in this article, speaks clearly to the fact that this dam is compromised and failure could happen at any time.

The Department of Water Resources is buying time, but not much time, by beginning the construction of a pool on the other side of the mountain. This is known as a coffer dam and they are doing everything under the cover of darkness. My source as well as Paul Preston say that this buy them a week, more or less.

Motivation for the Deep State Sabotage

California is broke. The failure of the dam will result in a billion dollars of federal aid, immediately. However, the goals of the Deep State are super-imposed on this event. Many of us in the Independent Media (IM) have been saying that before a we can be militarily attacked as a nation, we must be weakened within. This is one of two events I have highlighted that could precipitate such a weakening. Remember, the CALEXIT movement, favored by former Governor, Jerry Brown, is part and parcel to the coming destruction. CALEXIT has failed to win the state as an alternative to the formation of the 51st State under Paul Preston’s guidance. CALEXIT is desperate and it is controlled by the Deep State. Therefore, the failure of the dam would benefit all.

If the dam fails, one of the richest agricultural area in world would be no more. Spot famines would occur. Retail traffic would not make it out of California and would devastate the economy. This is the weakness that the Deep State desires. It is when we are in the throes of this event, that we will likely be attacked.

When the dam breaks, the water will coming rushing out  of the dam will be traveling at 70MPH and create a wall of water about 30 feet high. The water will reach Sacramento in about 45 minutes. My experts tell me that the Central Valley of California would take 72 hours to evacuate. It is unknown if an evacuation order would permit the necessary time to evacuate properly.

At this point, I find myself in an ethical dilemma. I don’t wish to unduly panic people. However, the video makes it clear that I would evacuate if asked to do so. At minimum, it would be wise to locate a location that is 40 feet above the ground. One should be preparing their bug out bag now. And as I told Paul Preston this morning, I would be evacuating my family right now. (Click to Source)

This video will make it crystal clear why I am sounding the alarm.

Mississippi River Breaks 1993 Flood Record

As severe rain and thunderstorms continue to hammer the Midwest, flooding along the Mississippi River has broken quarter-century record. Water levels at Rock Island, Illinois, reached a new record peak, and other spots along the river could also reach new record highs if the rain doesn’t stop.

The water level at Rock Island rose 7.7 feet (2.3 meters) above flood stage as of 8 am local time on Friday, according to the National Weather Service. Rock Island is about 175 miles west of Chicago, and the previous record was set in June 1993, when the upper Mississippi and Missouri Rivers flooded the surrounding area, according to Bloomberg.

Map

Though the area has experienced substantial precipitation in the past few months, in 1993 “we had rain after rain after rain throughout the spring and summer,” said Justin Palmer, a hydrologist with the U.S. North Central River Forecast Center in Chanhassen, Minn.

“It is kind of a one-off right now,” Palmer said. “But the potential is there as we get more rain for the river to stay high. We are definitely vulnerable to a rain event.”

But according to forecasts, the flooding could get worse. About 1.5 to 2 inches of rain is forecast to fall across Iowa and Illinois through May 10, the US Weather Prediction Center said. Between January and March, much of the Midwest will have had one of the 10 worst rain and snow seasons.

Between Jan. 1 and Thursday, 15.1 inches of rain fell in Davenport, Iowa, across the river from Rock Island.

High waters levels, which have persisted for months, have slowed the shipments of agriculture commodities like corn and grain, even forcing the CME Group to declare force majeure as some shipping stations became impossible to reach. (Click to Source)

Flu season is shaping up as one of the worst in years, officials say

Flu Season

The entire continental United States is experiencing widespread flu right now, the first time in the 13 years of the current tracking system that that has happened, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Officials said that this flu season is shaping up to be one of the worst in recent years.

The rate of flu hospitalizations — the number of people hospitalized with flu per 100,000 — nearly doubled last week compared with the previous week. Last week it was 22.7 per 100,000 people; the week before that rate was 13.7.

At the peak of the 2014-15 season, one of the two most severe seasons in the last 15 years or so, 29.9 people out of every 100,000 were hospitalized for flu.

The latest data — for the week ending Jan. 6 — suggest the season may be peaking right now, the CDC’s director, Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald, told reporters Friday. But she warned that many more people will be infected before the season is over.

There’s a difference between an active flu season — when a large number of people get sick — and a severe season, when the numbers of people hospitalized for flu or who die from the infection are unusually high.

It can be hard to tell in real time where a flu season will fall on the severity scale, because sometimes reports of influenza hospitalization and deaths — especially deaths among children — lag.

That said, this year is starting to look like a severe season, and maybe more severe than last year, which was also bad, said Dr. Dan Jernigan, head of CDC’s influenza division.

“There’s lots of flu in lots of places,” he said.

So far, Jernigan said, this year’s season doesn’t appear to be quite as bad as 2014-15.

The influenza A virus H3N2 has caused the lion’s share of the illness in most parts of the country this year.

But recently there’s been an uptick in activity by another influenza A virus, H1N1, Jernigan said, warning that even if the season appears to have peaked, flu viruses will circulate for weeks to come and people should continue to take precautions against getting infected.

Jernigan said that people over the age of 65 are being hospitalized for flu this season more than any other population. Even people age 50 to 64 are being hospitalized in high numbers.

Flu often hits the ends of the age spectrum more than the middle, and that’s the case this year as well. The CDC reported seven more children have died from flu, bringing the season total to 20 so far. While tragic, that number is low in comparison with other years — 110 last year, 92 in 2015-2016. But if other seasons are a gauge, that grim tally may continue to rise in coming weeks.

Officials feared that the flu vaccine may not work particularly well this season, but it appears to be faring slightly better than expected.

Preliminary testing by the CDC suggests the vaccine is probably more protective than it was in Australia during its 2017 winter. The Australian interim estimate suggested the H3N2 component of the vaccine — and H3N2 was the main virus there during their most recent winter — was only about 10 percent effective.

That means if 100 people got the flu shot and all were exposed to H3N2 viruses, only 10 would have been protected.

Jernigan said it looks more like the H3N2 portion of the vaccine is performing here like it did last year, when it was 34 percent effective at preventing infection. Unfortunately, that’s about on par for the flu shot’s H3N2 component, which is the weak link of flu vaccine.

The CDC should have interim data on the question of the vaccine’s effectiveness in the second half of February. (Click to Source)

Lindsey Graham to Americans: Your Country Belongs to the World

lindsay-graham-ap-640x480

America is not owned by Americans and their children but is instead held by people all over the globe, according to a statement from amnesty advocate Sen. Lindsey Graham.

“I’ve always believed that America is an idea [which is] not defined by its people but by its ideals,” Graham said in a press statement January 12 which sought to criticise President Donald Trump for describing some foreign countries as less pleasant than America, or as “shitholes.”

Graham continued:

The American ideal is embraced by people all over the globe.  It was best said a long time ago, E Pluribus Unum – Out of Many, One. Diversity has always been our strength, not our weakness.  In reforming immigration we cannot lose these American Ideals.

Graham was a founding member of the 2013 “Gang of Eight” pro-amnesty group and has frequently urged the importation of more cheap labor for his home-state companies.

His view of Americans’ homeland as the shared property of the world is shared by many other pro-immigration advocates. For example, Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who is working with Graham to push the amnesty bill, said in December:

America is a land of immigrants — it is who we are … that is why I have consistently supported humane and comprehensive immigration law reform, and it is why I am a proud co-sponsor of the DREAM Act.

In 2014, President Barack Obama voiced a similar claim, telling his audience that Americans do not have the right to exclude migrants:

Sometimes we get attached to our particular tribe, our particular race, our particular religion, and then we start treating other folks differently.

And that, sometimes, has been a bottleneck to how we think about immigration.  If you look at the history of immigration in this country, each successive wave, there have been periods where the folks who were already here suddenly say, well, I don’t want those folks.  Even though the only people who have the right to say that are some Native Americans.

Business elites also use the ideal of immigration to shake off the civic demands from their fellow citizens — and also to cut payroll costs, increase sales, grow profits and spike the value of real-estate.

On January 12, for example, shortly after Democrats leaked Trump’s description of some foreign countries as “shitholes” — Goldman Sachs’s CEO used Twitter to declare that Americans’ prime directive is acceptance of foreign immigrants.

The D.C.-based head of Mark Zuckerberg’s cheap-labor lobby, FWD.us, also insists that America is home to anyone who gets through the border.

In contrast, President Donald Trump won the 2016 election because voters shared his frequently expressed favoritism towards his own country and his fellow citizens. In his inauguration speech, Trump declared:

This is your day. This is your celebration. And this, the United States of America, is your country. What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. Everyone is listening to you now. You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before.

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction: that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves. These are the just and reasonable demands of a righteous public.

In his pro-immigration statement, Graham also argued that government-imposed civic variety — “diversity” — is an American ideal that is ensured by mass-immigration.

But numerous studies have shown that diversity increases civic conflict and reduces citizens’ ability or willingness to control their government and elites, such as their home-state Senators. According to a 2007 article describing a multi-year study by Harvard University about the impact of diversity:

Harvard political scientist Robert Putnam — famous for “Bowling Alone,” his 2000 book on declining civic engagement — has found that the greater the diversity in a community, the fewer people vote and the less they volunteer, the less they give to charity and work on community projects. In the most diverse communities, neighbors trust one another about half as much as they do in the most homogenous settings. The study, the largest ever on civic engagement in America, found that virtually all measures of civic health are lower in more diverse settings …

Putnam writes that those in more diverse communities tend to “distrust their neighbors, regardless of the color of their skin, to withdraw even from close friends, to expect the worst from their community and its leaders, to volunteer less, give less to charity and work on community projects less often, to register to vote less, to agitate for social reform more but have less faith that they can actually make a difference, and to huddle unhappily in front of the television.”

“People living in ethnically diverse settings appear to ‘hunker down’ — that is, to pull in like a turtle,” Putnam writes.

Polls show that Trump’s American-first immigration policy is very popular. For example, a December poll of likely 2018 voters shows two-to-one voter support for Trump’s pro-American immigration policies, and a lopsided four-to-one opposition against the cheap-labor, mass-immigration, economic policy pushed by bipartisan establishment-backed D.C. interest-groups.

Business groups and Democrats tout the misleading, industry-funded “Nation of Immigrants” polls which pressure Americans to say they welcome migrants, including the roughly 670,000 ‘DACA’ illegals and the roughly 3.25 million ‘dreamer’ illegals.

The alternative “priority or fairness” polls — plus the 2016 election — show that voters in the polling booth put a much higher priority on helping their families, neighbors, and fellow nationals get decent jobs in a high-tech, high-immigration, low-wage economy.

Four million Americans turn 18 each year and begin looking for good jobs in the free market.

But the federal government inflates the supply of new labor by annually accepting 1 million new legal immigrants, by providing work-permits to roughly 3 million resident foreigners, and by doing little to block the employment of roughly 8 million illegal immigrants.

The Washington-imposed economic policy of economic growth via mass-immigration floods the market with foreign labor, spikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees. It also drives up real estate prices, widens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with opioid addictions.

The cheap-labor policy has also reduced investment and job creation in many interior states because the coastal cities have a surplus of imported labor. For example, almost 27 percent of zip codes in Missouri had fewer jobs or businesses in 2015 than in 2000, according to a new report by the Economic Innovation Group. In Kansas, almost 29 percent of zip codes had fewer jobs and businesses in 2015 compared to 2000, which was a two-decade period of massive cheap-labor immigration.

Because of the successful cheap-labor strategy, wages for men have remained flat since 1973, and a large percentage of the nation’s annual income has shifted to investors and away from employees. (Click to Source)

Black Death TWO: Girl, 9, drops dead as strange ‘eye-bleeding fever’ spreads

A NEW disease is feared to become even more deadly than the Black Death that killed thousands in 2017 after it killed a nine-year-old child.

black-death-1-1201041

The girl dropped dead with the symptoms of an extremely contagious viral disease than can kill up to 40% of all infected.

She had contracted the bizarre new disease with similarities to the Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever.

This disease — usually spread by tick bites or contact with infected livestock — can cause muscle pains, headaches, vomiting, diarrhea and bleeding.

And panic is spreading after the sudden death of a girl in the Nakaseke District of Uganda.

A rapid response health team was rushed from the local hospital with a body bag to collect her and prevent any possible outbreak.

Health teams disinfected the girl’s home after her death on Thursday night local time, but didn’t give her grieving family any details about when they could have her body back.

Speaking to local media, family member Harriet Nalunkuma said: “We are stranded on what to do because the health teams took away the body.

“We are waiting for a communication regarding the burial arrangements.”

Local district Health Officer Dr Badru Ssesimba confirmed that blood samples from the girl’s body had been handed over to the Uganda Virus Research Institute, but wouldn’t give more details.

Authorities at the hospital — who didn’t want to be named — said that the body would be buried by health teams due to the “sensitivity” about a further outbreak.

But local officials in the East African country — which has been plagued by similar outbreaks recently — said this could be a completely new disease. (Click to Source)

As Flu Deaths Soar, Big Pharma Pushes Their Answer: ‘Death By Lethal Injection’ – Has The 2018 Flu Been Genetically Manipulated?

Witches Brew Of Chemicals Found In Government-Issued Flu Shots

By Stefan Stanford – All News Pipeline – Live Free Or Die

In this January 8th story over at the Santa Barbara Independent they report the flu had just killed 8 people in Santa Barbara, what the ‘public health czar‘ for Santa Barbara County was calling “unprecedented numbers“. Also warning that the number of patients testing positive for flu at local hospitals there was “off the charts“, Steve Quayle had left an interesting SQ note while linking to that story: “Whenever you see the word unprecedented its a heads up to consider intentional, manipulated virus – note the ages”.

As the SBI story noted, each of those who passed away was over the age of 65 yet, despite the announced fact that this years flu shot has largely been ineffective, as this new SQAlert also noted, doctors are still suggesting that the young and the elderly take their flu shots, despite even heavy medical industry doubts over its effectiveness.

Why would doctors recommend that their patients get the flu shot this year despite its ineffectiveness, with 7 of the 8 flu death victims in Santa Barbara having gotten the flu vaccine themselves? The full SQ Alert is republished below.

With the state of California’s flu epidemic running 300% above the 5-year average according to this story from Breitbart and not just packing emergency rooms to beyond capacity but bringing widespread medical shortages, even some ANP readers have mentioned in the comment section that they or friends or family members had fallen ill to the flu or some other mysterious illnesses recently.

pharma_deadly_poisons.jpg

In this story we’ll take a look at the deadly flu striking America as well some alternative health remedies that some people are using to help themselves and their loved ones fight this winter onset of illness. We’ll also take a look at some signs that this outbreak of the flu may have been genetically modified though at the moment we’re not in the position to prove so.

As we hear in the 2nd video below featuring Jon Rappoport along with Infowars as is also shared in this Rappoport story, big pharma and the vaccine industry pumped $3.2 billion dollars into TV ads for drugs during the 11 months preceding his story. As he mentions, that kind of money not only buys them influence, but it buys them control.

So why would any mainstream media companies do a proper investigation into ‘big pharma’ and their deadly poisons, including vaccines such as the flu shot? In the graphic at this link at the bottom of this story we see the witches brew of chemicals they’re injecting into our bodies when we get vaccinations, including latex rubber, aluminum and formaldehyde. From Rappoport’s story:

If a major network suddenly decided to set its hounds loose and investigate the overall devastating effects of medical drugs on the public, there would be hell to pay at the network. Drug companies wouldn’t stand for it. 

Robert F Kennedy, Jr., whose film, Trace Amounts, about toxic mercury in vaccines, was getting no media coverage, made this comment:

“I talked to Roger Ailes [then CEO of FOX News], who I have known since I was 17 years old, he’s very sympathetic with this issue and saw the film Trace Amounts. I said to him, ‘I just want to go on one of your shows. Nobody will allow me to talk about this or debate me.’ He said to me, ‘I can’t allow you on any of them. I’d have to fire any of my hosts that allowed you on my station.’ Because he said, ‘My news division gets up to 70% of advertising revenuesduring non-election years from the pharmaceutical companies’.”

That’s called control.

According to this 2017 story over at the website Health Impact News titled “Government Vaccine Injury Report Continues to Prove Flu Vaccines are Destroying Lives”, the federal government’s Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) had determined that at least 275 people had been injured with at least 4 deaths from the flu shot in 2017.

Yet with this massive outbreak of flu cases across the US, as our videographer tells us in the 1st video below, we might want to avoid the massive propaganda push to get the flu shot now, especially with it being largely ineffective.

As we see in the map above taken from this Weather Channel story, with widespread flu having now struck 46 states across America, the ‘vaccine propaganda machine’ has been kicked into overdrive. Not only striking the US but the UK as well, where deaths have soared 77% within one week according to this new story from the Daily Mail, might this version of the flu have been GMO’d?

With it now exactly 100 years since the Spanish flu of 1918 killed more than 100 million people after infecting nearly 500 million people in Europe and throughout the world as reported in this new story over at the Daily Wobble, it’s long been warned that globalists intent upon depopulating the planet might manipulate such a deadly disease to do so.

In this 2003 story over at AHC Media titled “Raising the ghost of 1918: Could flu be the ultimate bioweapon?” they report that in an age of exploding genetic engineering as we’ve previously reported upon on ANP, the opportunity to weaponize such a disease as the 1918 flu to wipe out a large part of humanity is growing, and please keep in mind, the excerpt below came from a 15-year old story.:

Could the Spanish influenza strain of 1918 — the unholy grail of infectious diseases — be resurrected as the ultimate bioweapon? 

“It would not be easy; but with advances in this technology, it gets easier every day,” warns Mohammed Madjid, MD, lead author of a provocative new paper about the possibilities of using the flu virus as a weapon of bioterrorism.

death_of_America_by_lethal_injection.jpg

According to this December 29th story over at Natural Blaze, FDA-approved medical drugs kill 106,000 Americans per year. As their story points out, that’s a MILLION deaths per decade! Death by lethal injection?

And as was previously mentioned above, why would medical doctors still be insisting that their elderly and very young patients get the flu shot when they know that it is ineffective? Great points brought up by David S. in the SQAlert below.

 READERS OBSERVATIONS CONCERNING THE FLU DEATHS IN SANTA BARBARA- NOTE THE AGES KILLING OFF THE YOUNG AND THE AGED – I CONCUR WITH DAVID’S ASSESSMENT 

Steve, 

I found the article that you posted this morning on the eight flu deaths in Santa Barbara county the past two weeks astounding. Seven of the eight victims had the flu vaccine yet died! Seems to me that not only doesn’t the vaccine work, but could the vaccine have contributed to their death? What a convenient trace free way to cull the elderly population. Then the “public health czar” (whatever the hell that is), a Ms. Dean says the following: “Even so, Dean said people should still get flu shots, particularly those younger than 5, older than 65, pregnant, or otherwise dealing with compromised health. “If your choice is between life and death or a trip to intensive care, why would you pass up that kind of protection, particularly if you’re already vulnerable?” she asked.” 

Steve, what kind of protection is she talking about, the kind that killed seven out of eight who got the shot? I was no math major but if I lived in SB I would take my chances not getting the shot in Santa Barbara. I rarely see a story that so blatantly smells of a cover up like this one. Even in an age of daily coverups!! This lady should be fired immediately for being an idiot, but then again she’s in CA and works for the government…enough said. 

God bless. 

David S..
