The government of Japan has issued an official order to telecommunications companies and web masters to censor reports which contradict the state media reports that the Fukushima nuclear radiation disaster is over.
The supposedly free democratic nation of Japan, which supposedly values and promotes freedom of speech, has officially issued orders to telecommunication companies and webmasters to remove content from websites that counter the official government position that the disaster is over and there is no more threat from the radiation.

Bangkok, Thailand April 24, 2011 – Imagine you are an embattled regime fighting against a rising tide of foreign-funded protesters. The entire world is watching, one nation is already under creeping foreign invasion for “waging war against his own people,” your nation has been warned that it is next and has been on a 20 year waiting list for regime change, and your opposition is gathering to bury dead protesters from a recent clash with security forces. What do you do?
Stage concealed snipers in multiple buildings and randomly shoot at mourners ensuring a very public, internationally sensationalized bloodbath that will unequivocally escalate both the protests and international pressure? Bashar al-Assad’s regime hasn’t ruled Syria for so long because they were careless or foolish. And while regimes could stay in power decades ago through unyielding brutality, often sanctioned by tacitly complicit western partners, regimes today realize the value of finesse and accountability in a new age of humanitarian-justified imperialism.

A 7.4 earthquake struck off the coast of Miyagi in northeastern Japan a little after 10:30 am ET. The quake was centered 41 miles (66km ) from Sendai — one of the areas worst hit by last month’s 9.0-magnitude quake — and 73 miles (118 km) from Fukushima. The quake was centered 207 miles (333 km) from Tokyo, the U.S. Geological Survey said. It was 15.9 miles (25.6 km) deep. At 11:30 am, CNN TV reported the first waves of a tsunami have hit the coast.
This chart from 220.127.116.11/cgi-bin/magnetometer/gak-mag.cgi shows a 36-hour plot of the readings taken from the fluxgate magnetometer, built by the University of Alaska, Geophysical Institute, operating at the HAARP ionospheric observatory in Gakona, Alaska. The three traces represent mutually orthogonal components of the earth’s magnetic field as follows:
* The “H” component (black trace) is positive magnetic northward
* The “D” component (red trace) is positive eastward
* The “Z” component (blue trace) is positive magnetic downward
Geomagnetic storminess is usually indicated in oscillatory variations in the earth’s magnetic field. Additional detail concerning the nature and severity of the ionospheric disturbance can be found through analysis of the three components of the field.

“It is not only conspiracy theorists that are apprehensive about HAARP. The European Union called the programme ‘a subject that concerns the whole planet’ and passed a resolution calling for more information on its health and environmental risks. Despite those concerns, officials at HAARP insist the project is nothing more sinister than a radio science research facility.”
— Quote from a documentary on HAARP by Canada’s public broadcasting network CBC.
The indescribable tragedy in Japan, with its still unknown implications for the future of life on this planet, along with the parallel paroxysm of barbarous violence in North Africa suggest that human history is moving into a new and unprecedentedly dramatic phase.
Inevitably, speculation focuses on the role of secret systems such as HAARP, and its counterparts in other countries. The suggestions of journalist George Ure are just one example of a widespread questioning:
March 20 interview with Alfred Webre (author of Exopolitics: Politics, Government and Law in the Universe)
Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab whistleblower and geoscientist, Leuren Moret, whose 2004 landmark article in the Japan Times (Japan’s deadly game of nuclear roulette) unmasked lies and distortions by government and company officials that led to the construction of nuclear power plants in seismically dangerous areas, has declared in an exclusive 66-minute video interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre that the Japan earthquake and ‘accidents’ at the Fukushima’s 6-nuclear power plant units starting March 11, 2011 are in fact deliberate acts of tectonic nuclear warfare, carried out against the population of Japan and the nations of the Northern Hemisphere, including the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

The Japanese disaster at Fukushima is a human tragedy of striking proportions. As many as ten thousand citizens may be dead in the general catastrophe, with many more at risk for radiation poisoning at levels yet to be determined. The fact that Japan is a highly organized and wealthy nation in no way diminishes the intensity of the losses and pain experienced by the victims. (Image)
Political and economic implications will emerge rapidly. As the whole world watches, the Japanese experience creates windows of opportunity to learn how to avert future meltdowns at nuclear ticking time bombs placed throughout Europe, the United States, India, and China.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) made an embarrassing error just two days before the start of the Libyan people’s revolution on February 17. This quote from an IMF country study appeared in a previous article: “The outlook for Libya’s economy remains favorable.” IMF Feb 15 This advice was 180 degrees off target. The Libyan economy has ceased functioning as protests and popular demands imploded the Gaddafi regime. (Image)
Further investigation unearthed a specific pattern of positive IMF endorsements for each of the nations experiencing popular uprisings that are sweeping the region. When the IMF blesses a nation’s progress for conforming to the economic policies underlying globalism, watch out! There is a popular rebellion in the wings.

The remarkable rising against Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has roused interest throughout the world. Interest is especially keen in Iran, where official statements and propaganda have been aimed at the so-called Arab Street for many years now. Egyptians did not need a foreign agit-prop campaign to know Mubarak was brutal and corrupt, that he had acquiesced to various US and Israeli policies, and that their futures were not bright. Nonetheless, Iran will seek to take advantage of the new situation, and interaction between the two countries will be critical for years to come.
The Conflict With Sunni-Arab States
For decades now, there has been a low-level conflict between Iran and several Sunni-Arab states. The origin of the conflict goes back centuries and involves both sectarian and geopolitical elements. Its more immediate cause was Ayatollah Khomeini’s call for Islamic revolution in 1979 and Iraq’s invasion the following year, which was backed by many Sunni Arab states.

Notes written from the brink of war

Wars can easily start from miscalculation, and as I look at the Korean peninsula, I believe that somebody miscalculated.
Aung San Suu Kyi waves to supporters outside her house after being released
By various sources
Imprisoned for 15 of the last 21 years, Aung San Suu Kyi is once again free. The 65-year-old Nobel Peace Prize laureate, whose latest period of house detention spanned 7 1/2 years, was forbidden to see her husband before he died of cancer. The military junta disbanded her political party, National League for Democracy (NLD) party. NLD won a landslide victory in 1990 elections, but the junta ignored the result and repeatedly sentenced her to periods of detention at her home in Rangoon. Burma’s first elections since 1990 took place on Sunday, but were widely dismissed by outside observers as a sham.
I just read the presidents big speech tonight and it struck me. There were some key lines left out of the speech. You may have had the same response. For the sake of clarity and fairness, I’ve tried to reconstruct the missing lines. I’m sure that the omissions were just an accident. Or maybe that Robert Gibbs may be up to his old tricks again. My insertions are in italics, following the president’s words from the official White House transcript. White House, August 31, 2010 Here goes.
THE PRESIDENT: Good evening. Tonight, I’d like to talk to you about the end of our combat mission in Iraq, the ongoing security challenges we face, and the need to rebuild our nation here at home. But before I do that, we need a moment of truth. The Iraq war was based on a deliberate lie involving the White House distorting the National intelligence estimate on Iraqi Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). The report got it wrong on WMD. There were none. But it concluded that the only way the nonexistent WMD would be used against the United States was in retaliation for a US attack on Iraq that threatened Saddam Hussein. By deleting this information, the Bush-Cheney White House justified a preemptive invasion without any basis, a crime under international law that our nation helped establish after World War II.

Vaccine programmes grind to a halt in India once more, when four children died after they received the measles vaccination in Lucknow. The four children were reported to have fainted soon after they were vaccinated and witnesses reported seeing the children’s eyes roll back as they began to have seizures. All of the children were under the age of two years of age, with the youngest being just six months. Sadly the children died before medical aid workers could reach them.

It appears that the United States is winning friends and influencing people all over the world. This exchange is not acknowledged by either government, but the report has the ring of truth to it. The US is the world’s leading arms exporter and the president is, alas, the arms pusher in chief. Now we’re trying to shove around a NATO ally, the second largest armed force in that alliance, and an emerging world power. Why is it that our leaders are so different than the citizens? I don’t know any business people who would take such an arrogant approach to a friend and excellent customer. Amazing, as the fools lead us to decline.

As the Obama administration continues to add to the aid package for flood-stricken Pakistan — already the largest humanitarian response from any single country — officials acknowledge that they are seeking to use the efforts to burnish the United States’ dismal image there. (Image)
AP Aug 9
The number of people suffering from the massive floods in Pakistan could exceed the combined total in three recent megadisasters — the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2005 Kashmir earthquake and the 2010 Haiti earthquake — the United Nations said Monday.
The death toll in each of those three disasters was much higher than the 1,500 people killed so far in the floods that first hit Pakistan two weeks ago. But the Pakistani government estimates that over 13 million people have been affected — 2 million more than the other disasters combined.
Like probably everyone else who stops by here, I’ve spent the better part of the past two days and part of the nights and early mornings glued to #freekg and diesel.elcat.kg, peeling off temporarily to follow links that are posted to other news and analysis.

As others, I continue to refresh my news sources for Kyrgyz details. While reading all I could find, I noticed that Sarah’s post was quite unique. What struck me was how Registan can’t help but be the anti-FP blog. To be more specific, the fact that FP has two stories that seem to see the […]

GENEVA–Chen Shizhong of the United Nations Association, San Diego Chapter, addressed the U.N. Human Rights Council on March 15 to disclose the Chinese regime’s intensifying use of nerve-damaging chemicals to torture Falun Gong practitioners and force them to give up their belief.

At a time when anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is becoming broadly recognized as a politically driven, pseudo-scientific power-grab, Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates recently “unveiled his vision” of global catastrophe unless net man-made carbon emissions are reduced to zero. The video of his peculiar, ill-timed, February TED2010 talk is here. (http://www.ted.com/talks/bill_gates.html)
Gates also delivered a very odd comment at around the 4:30 mark of the linked video where he maintains “if we do a really great job on vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that [his initial 2050 global population projection of 9-billion] by perhaps about 10 to 15 percent.”
Bill Gates recently pledged $10-billion towards a global vaccine program targeting the “world’s needy children.”
