Geoengineering Watch Global Alert News, April 28, 2018, #142


Dane Wigington

The human race must untether the natural world from its global onslaught of countless destructive activities if nature and the web of life is to have any hope of surviving. Technology (and those who worship it), cannot save us from ourselves, that is collectively up to us. Are major environmental organizations truly committed to the greater good of the biosphere as a whole? Or are they often little more than false fronts that mask total hypocrisy? Could climate engineering lead to war? Has this already been the case? Based on international surveys, which countries are considered the greatest threat to international peace? How desperate will the power structures of these countries become as a wider awareness of their actions (past and present) grows? The latest installment of Global Alert News is below.

As the path before us grows rapidly more difficult, how many will continue to cling to willful blindness? Who will summon their courage to fully face the wider horizon? Who will choose to make every possible effort to do their part for the greater good at this late hour? If we are to have any chance of waking the masses in time to make a difference, it will take our collective efforts, it will take all of us.

This week's outreach booth is at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, Santa Rosa, California, and is shown below. My most sincere and continuing gratitude to the Gem Faire exhibition organizers for facilitating and setting up this very effective booth in every week's Gem Faire location. The schedule for upcoming Gem Faire events is HERE. A booth will be at all events, thanks to the steadfast support of Gem Faire.


Geoengineering Watch wishes to extend our most sincere gratitude to Phil Dugas for spearheading the anti-geoengineering awareness effort at the New Consciousness Expo in Salt Lake City, Utah, April 28th, 2018.


More photos from Earth Day, April 21st, 2018, are below, my most sincere gratitude to each and every activist that helped with the awareness raising effort.

    The Earth Day speech by our President needs, to be taken into account, by factoring in Climate Engineering, before the word Conservation is used! How can the word Conserve or Conservation be used, when Climate Engineering is destroying everything within the web of life!!!

  2. Dennie says:

    I sent the following message to just now:

    If we really are going to be TRUTHFUL about climate change, you have to be truthful about the WHOLE of the issue of manmade climate change.  Including the highly visible ongoing GEOENGINEERING programs of "solar radiation management," "stratospheric aerosolized injection," and "stratospheric aerosolized geoengineering," a.k.a. "chem trails," because there exist MOUNTAINS of documents including Congressional reports on federal activities in large-scale weather modification and over 100 patents for spraying the skies with various substances that alter the weather.  And while you're at it, look up "ice nucleation" patents that can cool the area immediately below the sprays by as much as 100 degrees Fahrenheit.  Get real, get informed, get out of denial and GET 100 PER CENT TRUTHFUL about that elephant on the living room couch known as GEOENGINEERING:

    I wonder who the '…reputable private company that designs drones for cloud seeding' is/was?

    Speaking of puppets (Trump) in the play, we are all in the play. The  Gov't. was already structured and in place when I born onto this land,  and they got us believing we have to participate in the play.  

    When they passed The Dept. of Motor Vehicles Act, they made sure you knew you were participating in an act, that's why they dressed up all the actors. We have costumes on the Highway Patrol, we have costumes on the Sheriff's Dept., and on the judge when you get there!  When you register your car, you give up rights, in exchange for benefits and privileges. You "consent" to turning it into a vehicle and you've entered it into the play. So now you are no longer a traveler, you are a driver, or, you are a operator. Travelers don't get tickets, they can't, there is no law against traveling, even at the speed of sound! There is also no law for a traveler to carry a license, there are only licenses for operators and drivers. Thank you Bill Foust, RIP. 

    This explains the "plate-less" cars I've seen in Arizona. 

    The lights ARE turning on!

    Thank you Paul Vonharnish for posting a link to The Late

    • Hello Donna-AZ:  I think it is the height of honor to honor another.  The pattern always repeats when it is freely expressed… This website has pulled together so many kind and excellent people…

      I discovered William "Bill" Foust just a few months before his very untimely death.  Even though the contact was limited to his YouTube presentations, I loved him like a brother.  His spirit still lives…

    • joe S says:

      Hooray to Donna-AZ,   At one time I believed ,born in USA and many freedoms, we had(past tense) were great.  I did private inventing, Electric Vehicles 1976-80.  ah, the good Prez. Jimmy Carter. Well ,when he did not become re-elected, out the door in secret when ALL funding for EV's, solar energy. Republican Party is so corrupt with power, they all inhouse fighting.   I was still a private,licensed,thru State of Ca pro driving school teacher. I was in that teaching until 1985. Later, worked with a family to create their Coffee house business . I left, 2000 to travel..New Zealand, Australia, Fiji Islands, cook Islands, Hawaii. Yes, a traveler does not receive tickets. Now, I have only US Passport as any police officer can not use for a ticket(no address) "I  always use it." I  have no personal auto, as can rent one as required.  Airline travel since 2000, works well especially in South Pacific area. I did not read of Bill Foust..He was correct as travelers are free, no tickets ever(when showing US passport).   And yes, the only entity making money from autos, sales of autos are: banksters(banks), corrupt oil companies. Corrupt politicians and Dept. of Motor vehicles(collect a tax) on every vehicle sold or traded. Freedom, ? Now the negative beings and amoral Geoengineers(All) have sold themselves to greed, lack of compassion to fellow life forms on Earth. and if any have children, sold them out too.   Thanks, for your good posting Donna.

  5. It seems most readers commenting here are well aware of Israeli/Saudi military dictates and territorial objectives in the middle east.  I keep searching for potential solutions to this and other criminal activities.  It is obvious the United Nations is "owned" and will never address the atrocities perpetrated upon Yemen, Gaza, Syria, or any other National exigency.

    It always comes down to the common will of American civilians.  We have been robbed of self governance, and our financial systems are completely out of control. Dennis Kucinich tears Chairman Ben Bernake a new one  Published on Oct 14, 2013

    Most of the developed world is owned and operated by Federal Reserve policy.  Audits have been demanded over and over, but no compliance is forthcoming.  Amurikuns have been hoodwinked into believing that our Constitution is a joke.  I'm not laughing…           The Return of Common Law – The People Take Back the Republic April 1, 2014  Ethann Fox

    The first Declaration of Independence. > Excerpted from: Act of Abjuration – Wikipedia

    The Act of Abjuration (Dutch: Plakkaat van Verlatinghe, literally 'placard of abjuration'), is de facto the declaration of independence by many of the provinces of the Netherlands from Spain in 1581, during the Dutch Revolt.

    Signed on 26 July 1581 in The Hague, the Act formally confirmed a decision made by the States General of the Netherlands in Antwerp four days earlier. It declared that all magistrates in the provinces making up the Union of Utrecht were freed from their oaths of allegiance to the King of Spain, Philip II. The grounds given were that Philip II had failed in his obligations to his subjects, by oppressing them and violating their ancient rights (an early form of social contract). Philip was therefore considered to have forfeited his thrones as ruler of each of the provinces which signed the Act.   Complete text:

    American civilians have the inherent (inalienable) power to denounce our corrupted systems and lead the world out of the multiple disasters we've manifested.  Where will Yemen, Syria, Palestine, and other countries be in the immediacy of our tomorrows?

    • Steve Brownsberger says:

      Thank you Paul. The video of Kucinich ripping into Bernanke was friggin awesome. I cannot wait for more of this at every level, but I do fear that without a crisis that affects many (immediately) we will never have the numbers needed to peacefully create any change. These people are above the law. Hell they are the law, they cannot loose. Yet I feel within every fiber of my being the need to fight this corruption until death. I thank everyone on this website for being brave and for providing a forum were anyone can find support/courage and strength.

      God Bless us all.

    Sandy Petrus,


    Total agreement with you government is a joke,

    however a trickster for citizens.

    73, now and the geoengineering, HAARP is sinster and

    causing nasty harm to all life on our Earth.

    Now, I found this new(to me) on the  US and Germany relations

    before start of WW 2.. Of  course Germany was not kind to the Polish in 1939.

    Well, that war was in Europe, not US… Yes.

    Germany maintained good diplomatic relations, so

    as not to go to war with the US…

    The trickster of FDR was this.

    German diplomats were in July, 1941 asking US Navy to leave

    German cargo ships alone. FDR ordered the US Navy to seize

    neutral(to USA) German cargo ships.  US Navy did not stop.

    Again Germany asked for neutral relations with US.fair enough.

    Those who did not  like Germans in 1939 going to war with England.

    ..Remember neutral status Germany and US then.

    Well not true a covert seizing of German cargo ships continued into Oct. 1939.

     What was the options for German gov't then?

    Well all know what happened..German tricked into war with US.

    Do you see now the tricksters to US here in US then and continuing  with geo engineering , GMO's and vaccines against

    your consent.  All the German documents are in books or on

    internet sites before ww2 started.



    • Dennie says:

      Well, I dunno– Germany looks like a better alternative to the United State of Amnesia to me at this time.  The daughter of one of my musician colleagues just got married to a German, they are both living here as he is working in a high-tech start-up company and it's doing great at this time.  We had Thanksgiving dinner last year and I got to hear a lot about what's working in Germany.  They want health care and they want the arts, so they pay for it.  They get decent vacations.  They are more realistic and aware of what constitutes real health, and real health care than most Uhmerukunz who do whatever their Em Deity dictates (mostly from Big Pharma).  And yes, it's true one of the biggest pharmaceutical offenders is a German-owned company (Bayer), though many Germans are quite vocal about toxic pharma as well as preserving nature and keeping our food, water and our air clean.  BTW:  Many Germans did NOT agree with the N.A.Z.I. party and very many spoke out about it at the time.  I have a neighbor whose parents hid their Jewish neighbors in their barn at great peril to their own lives.  This neighbor also reported having been given the polio vaccine as a child from occupying Americans, then contracted a case of real polio a few days later.  Fortunately her mother helped cure her, using natural German herbal and homeopathic remedies. 

  7. Rachel Robson says:

    All, this is one for my Nature Bites Back list:  "Damage to fishing nets caused by dolphins is increasing across the Mediterranean as overfishing forces the marine mammals to compete more with humans for seafood.  Damage to the fishing businesses is now thousands of dollars per year, researchers say.  Acoustic 'pingers' used in an attempt to deter dolphins haven't worked and may have actually attracted the ocean animals in some sense."    !!!!  

    • penny says:

      Sadly, Rachel, the dolphins are damaging nets only because they can't get enough food elsewhere.  And – don't read on if you don't want to be seriously depressed – the baby dolphins, not knowing better, will get trapped  in the nets… and their mothers will stay by them, singing to them to comfort them, till both mother and baby drown.

      Stop eating fish and using fish oil, everyone, please!  Your omega-3's aren't that important.

    Gas Development in Northwest Siberia
    Norman Chance & Elena Andreeva / Arctic Circle
    In northwest Siberia, oil and gas development has expanded dramatically over the past several decades. Stretching from the Ural Mountains in the west to Novosibirsk in the south, this region produces 78 percent of the Russia's oil and 84 percent of its natural gas; and it is expected to increase its petro-chemical industry significantly within the next decade.  The area is also inhabitated by seven indigenous Native populations as well as a much larger number of immigrant workers. The Yamal-Nenets and Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Regions, situated within the Tyumen Oblast [province], represent the center of this development, producing many billions of cubic meters of gas and millions of tons of oil annually. However, the ecological and social costs have also been tremendous as existing oil, gas, and other forms of industrial production pollute air, water, and land to an almost unimaginable extent. …
    Just to the south of Yamal in the Khanty-Mansi autonomous region, an earlier petroleum development had had a similar devastating impact on the Nenets and Khanty people living in that area.  In some localities, as much as a third of summer pasture had been taken over by oil ministries for construction purposes, forcing greater overgrazing on the remaining tundra. Those engaged in commercial fishing on the Ob River basin had seen their waters seriously contaminated by pollutants flowing north from southern industrial centers. Funds designated by Moscow state planning agencies for improved housing, education, health services, and vocational retraining of the rural indigenous populous, were regularly siphoned off by local and regional administrations and then reallocated to larger towns and cities to be used for construction of administrative buildings, recreational centers, and the like. Special laws and decrees designed to protect the interest of the Nenets and Khany were also disregarded.
    With the breakup the Soviet Union in 1991, and Russia facing an extremely difficult economic transition to a more capitalist-oriented economy, Yamal's role as a major national resource again received major attention.  Unfortunately, a combination of factors including continuing problems of financing, outmoded technology, complex hydrologic and permafrost conditions, a difficult working environment, and the central government's demand for rapid construction, may well bring about a serious deterioration in the environment and equally significant economic and social problems for its indigenous peoples – a very high price to pay for a short-term economic effect.  …. it is quite likely that Yamal's future gas production will be undertaken with minimal attention focused on the rights and needs of its indigenous population; or a few urban indigenous elites, strongly influenced by regional bureaucrats and powerful industrial managers, will sign documents that fail to solve the problems of the land, resources, and compensation in an equitable manner.  If this turns out to be the case, Nenets and Khanty will continue to live under conditions of increasing turmoil and social depravation, while the natural resources from their land provide new wealth to those holding the reins of power.

    Russia’s floating nuclear power plant prompts protests as it heads for the Arctic
    April 29, 2018
    Russia has put to sea a controversial floating nuclear plant to supply far-flung Siberian outposts with power as part of its potentially lucrative development of the Arctic region.  The Akademik Lomonosov vessel was towed from its shipyard in St Petersburg on Sunday (Australian time), bound for the Russian naval port of Murmansk, a city of 300,000 people, where its reactors are to be loaded with nuclear fuel.  … Russia is expanding its presence in the Arctic region to exploit rich oil and gas reserves and the thawing Northern Sea Route.  … The northern route, which is entirely within Russia’s exclusive economic zone, is the shortest shipping route from China to Europe.  The distance from St Petersburg to Vladivostok along the route is about 40 per cent shorter than via the Suez Canal, potentially allowing Asian cargo transporters to reach Northern Europe about nine days faster.  Typically, the route would only be free of ice for about two months a year, but climate-induced melting of ice is increasing this time, making it more viable.   ….  Moscow is strengthening its military presence in the region as both a result of the changing climate and in preparation for greater commercial activity.   In late 2017 Russia sent the world’s largest nuclear-powered icebreaker, Sibir, to the region to clear a path for Russian ships to deliver gas to Asia. … “The floating nuclear power plants will typically be put to use near coastlines and shallow water … contrary to claims regarding safety, the flat-bottomed hull and the floating nuclear power plant’s lack of self-propulsion makes it particularly vulnerable to tsunamis and cyclones.”  Rosatom denies the Greenpeace claims, saying it is not an environmental threat, and noting that its twin reactors are tried and tested versions of those used in Russian naval vessels.

    ANOTHER GREAT MESSAGE! I keep sharing it online!!


  11. virginia says:

    Dane,  just want to make a personal statement about the Gem Faires illustrated above.  Your personal appearances at these faires makes such a profound statement of support to all those attending and conducting them.  Knowing how busy your schedule is, you are to be commended, once again.  And to the gentleman helping out who is dressed so smartly in a business suit….you look absolutely so attractive and business-like…thank you for caring.   Peace.

    • Dane Wigington says:

      Hello, Virginia, thank you for you for your support in this battle. I wish I could accept the credit for attending all the GEM FAIRE events, but I cannot. The photos of me in this week’s post were at the Earth Day event in Redding California (which I have always attended). Though I have also attended a GEM FAIRE event in the past,  the distances to the weekly event locatiosn are unfortunately well beyond what I could manage with all the other fires I am trying to tend in the fight to expose and halt the climate engineering insanity. This being said, I will continue to do my best to sound the alarm, you can count on that.

      Hi Sandy, I feel the same way as you! Who gave these Idiots the permission to spray our skies and block out the sun as they do most every day! I don't think that our Father in Heaven meant for this to happen! Somehow this reminds me of what hitler did to human beings against their will! Someone please tell me what the differance is here, what right do they have to do this! Aren't times hard enough on a of us? 

    • Ron Marr says:

      Sandy Patrus, You are asking the right questions…(are the ones running everything even human?)…NO…but, neither are we…we are consciousness. It is our right to experience a life, as proof of our existence. If it is compromised or stolen into a virtual fake reality, than it is our responsibility not to be cut off from consciousness…and participate in our own death march to destruction. ANY, CHOICE WE MAKE LEADS TO THE SAME SLAUGHTER HOUSE.  'THEY' cannot survive in consciousness and their fake reality cannot hold up to our illusion of life. Consciousness is our only salvation.

    Hello,Bella Fantasia, and thank you for your post and links to the Israeli occupation of Palestine and its illegal and unconscionable atrocities raining down  on the Palestinian people who are trying so desperately and with such courage to regain their part of Palestine that was carved up by the UN in 1948.  It grieves me deeply that most Americans do not conflate the problem of Palestinian freedom with what is happening in our own beloved America "that could be."

    To many, "so what, it's their problem."  No.  It is not the problem of the Palestinians to stop Israeli aggression and illegal, repressive, murderous ways.  It is our problem.  It is America's problem; for we are not only financially and morally supporting this black era in our history, we are actually fighting these fake 'wars on 'terror'' not for American interests, but for Israeli plans to gain sovereignty over the entire Middle East and Near East (Iran and Arabian nations).  We are paying for it, not only in our treasure, but in our fighting men and women who fight the wars and lose their lives for Israel. Israeli soldiers are never in the heat of any battle.  It is we Americans who pay and fight and lose whatever decency we have left for the lives of humans and the viability of ancient countries who have never threatened the USA.  It grieves me that the American population in general, does not see the importance of the Palestine people who want Israeli Zionist Jewry (communists) to stop with the murders and dispossession of their people, on-going for over four generations. These 'wars on terror" (thanks Bushes and Cheneys, etal) are not only draining America, but are insuring the demise of this country.  Until Americans realize the connection of stopping Israeli aggression and control of America (and the world except Russia, Iran, china, Syria, hopefully) we can expect that boot over our faces, forever.

    Bella, you mentioned the young Palestinian girl, Ahed Tamimi, who was witness to the maiming and murder of her relatives by Israeli soldiers (they excel in fighting young people, unarmed people, and those too helpless to fight back) getting 8 years in prison.  That sentence, thanks to international outcry, was reduced to eight months, so that she should be released by mid-summer, if she can survive Israeli prisons which now hold over 400 young Palestinians.  Ahed's mother is also imprisoned. 

    The point being:  Israel is not our friend, not the friend of America.  Our new Zionist Government is in complete control of this country.  They will drain us of our lives, heritage, future in a slow kill that we, as a nation cannot recognize. We must awaken to all of these dangers: Geo engineering; weather modification; weather warfare; droughts; floods; earthquakes; tsunamis; food scarcity, and so much more, on-going and seemingly unstoppable.  There is not much time left.  It is imperative that we stop the source. We must, as a country, stop financing useless and terrifying wars on innocent peoples and stop financing the one country responsible for the present world state.

    There is a famous quote by Father John Sheehan, S.J. who spent much of his life in Syria, Palestine: "Every time anyone says that Israel is our only friend in the Middle East, I cannot help but think that before Israel,, we had no enemies in the Middle East."  That is historically accurate.  I know.  I lived in the days of friendly Arab nations, grew up in that period and have studied it ever since. Until America goes back to pre-Israel history and maintains a peaceful existence with those nations, the entire world will know no peace.

    Palestine is the key.  It must be settled.  There must be an end to Israeli occupation and expansion for America to survive.  Bless those who are suffering so much at our hands and bless us to survive as a great nation….we have the potential.  But, do we have the spirit?

    Thank you, Bella, for understanding the importance of a great dark blot in the history of mankind.  We pray  for peace, comfort and resolution to all repressed peoples, wherever they may be.

    • Rachel Robson says:

      Piling on again, this is not a new issue, but it seems people are finally becoming aware.  Some of us have been fighting this one for many, many decades now.  It spans my lifetime.  Some of the foremost advocates on behalf of Palestine have died and left such a void.

  14. frank reps says:

    Most people who voted for Trump believed his campaign promises and hoped he would respond to their disgust and anger at the political establishment..  Trump was a manifestation of this dismay on the part of Americans .  The current attacks on Trump by many parties and entities has these "same "Americans rallying to his defense.  This is a natural response and to be admired  except for one important  and   glaring factor.  Although Trump is being besieged by his enemies ; he is actually conducting himself in line with his  so called enemy's objectives.  His promise Not to involved us in the Middle east has been broken.  His promise to try and get along with Russia has been abandoned.  His promise to indict Hillary and the Clinton Foundation which  has killed thousands of poor Haitians by stealing their relief money , has been abandoned.  The so called Wall is not being built.  Actions do speak louder than words ; and Trump's actions are not at all what he promised the American people.  The fact that other entities seem to be his enemies is not a reason to rally to his defense.  We should  " only " help him if he had kept his promises.  He had not….instead he acts as a victim…when he himself is shooting rockets into Syria ; antagonizing Russia and has a nut case working for him  at the UN shrieking at a major Nuclear Super Power.  The Two Koreas and China are getting together in order to keep Trump out of their  neighborhood.  Of course Trump will grab the baton[ run to the head of the parade } and  and act as if he is the drum majorette.  Please wake up.  Trump conned us alll.  Help Dane get the word out by  scrolling up to the  " Donate " portion of this website.

      "they" should find a way to cover the ice with more ice, not via the criminal method of ice chemical nucleation, but for example:

    My 215th email titled 'About To Go From Linear to Exponential'

    1. On 28th April, the 365 day average Arctic sea ice volume was reported as 2nd lowest @ 13, 305km3. This week there have been huge increases in emissions of nitrous oxide, methane and CO2. Still no update on ocean heat content – this is now a month overdue. 

    Bering Sea ice is at only 13% of normal for the date. It is at the mid june level, thus 2 months ahead of schedule.

    In abrupt climate change terms, we are about to go from linear to exponential – probably this year, possibly next year or the year after.

    The Gulf of Oman now has a dead zone the size of Scotland. 

    2. Whilst I don't know the exact wording of the OPCW written report on the Douma false flag chemical attack, team members are verbally say that it is "absolutely proven" that no chemical attack took place. They have taken their samples, interviewed their obligatory 6 witnesses – doctors, hospital staff, civilians (incl the 11yr boy). The BBC and western media remains quiet about this, and will probably continue to ignore or downplay the findings if they report no chemical attack took place – similar to how they ignore or downplay the truth about the ongoing intensive toxic atmospheric spraying.

    3.  Notes to Self (week 68 of 104) I do laugh at myself: I sweat away growing food in three huge greenhouses because I know that we are about to face food shortages caused by abrupt global warming as a result of "greenhouse gasses"! 

    Depending on how abrupt the abrupt global warming is, our growing season will soon be in what we currently call the winter months – until the planned nuclear/volcanic winter. 

    Ah well, methinks 'tis just 36 weeks before the general public in our western bubble starts to wake up and do something – and I do not mean be further bribed by subsidy scams (wind, solar, etc) that have distracted so many and helped lead us to this dire situation.

    • simone says:

      Most of the people desperately depend on their "jobs" no matter what kind of damage these jobs do cause, whether we talk about messing up with the environment, our very health, food, education, sciences or research, news..  People cannot stop slaving for mass-garbage-producing industries who are manipulating our brainless governments.   The majority of people are very helpless, live on modest monthly checks coming from those who Destroy everything in this crying world. People's opinion does not change a thing because opinions would not make them quit their stupid and harmful  "jobs"!!  CAN WE GIVE THESE PEOPLE REAL POSSIBILITIES TO GET NEW MEANINGFUL WELL-PAID JOBS??  They will follow, but for money.  The development of small interactive sustainable businesses is our only hope for the future. Learning New skills is a must.

    • Andrew from scotland says:

      Simone, you are correct, though I suggest that small sustainable communities is our only hope for the future….and we have at max 2 to 6 years to get those organised.

      "It's a sair fecht", and one we must fight… "On, On"

    • Pedro says:

      Hello All.

      Before organizing the small and sustainable communities I suggest that maybe is more important to the future of Mankind and for the future of the Biosphere if we organize ourselves in very big and compact communities and march together ( as one ) to the doors of the institutions that represent each state of the US, to the doors of the International Civil Aviation Organization ( in Quebec or their similar in the US ), to the doors of the "american elements" corporation ( US-LA, UK, France, Germany, Austria ), and to the doors of the institutions that represent the UN in these countries also. And that these compact and numerous groups of peaceful protesters get to stay blocking these doors as long as possible to call the attention necessary to the problem of climate engineering.

    • Andrew from scotland says:

      Pedro, I suggest that both can happen as 'concurrent activities'.

      To quote Trump: "I would love to bring back our country into a great form of unity. Without a major event where people pull together, that's hard to do…"  

      Our major event to cause people to pull together will be food shortages – which will happen in about 36 weeks to 2 years time.

    All, I really did not say enough about the former Hunter's Point Naval Shipyard.  "Home to the Naval Radiological Defense Laboratory from 1946 to 1969, is now the site of the San Francisco Shipyard development project, regarded as perhaps the most important development site in the city.  It is to contain more than 10,500 housing units, 300 acres of open space, millions of square feet of retail, schools, a hotel and artists studios."  A company called Tetra Tech was paid between 350 and 450 million dollars to lead the cleanup of the site and relaxed the standards for what was allowed to leave the property starting in 2011.  "The portal monitors, radiation detection scanners used to prevent trucks containing dangerous materials from exiting, were reset to be less sensitive.  An area with scaffolding that allowed inspectors to get on top of the trucks to inspect shipments was taken down."   "Former shipyard employee Susan Andrews, who operated portal monitors in 2010 and 2011, said Tetra Tech management went to extreme lengths to ensure trucks were allowed to exit, not matter how many times they set off the radiation detector."  "Before 2011 that dirt was never to leave until radiation detected was found, contained and put in a secure lockup box."   "In 2011 they changed the way they did business."  

    I find the above of great interest and not just because I live in the Bay Area but because this was considered The most contaminated site, so bad, so bad.  And, 2011 was back when the supposedly more aware people were in government control, but moreover because this very thing has been done all over this country and if not with radioactive to the max contamination, with other great evils too such as the Super Fund Site I've mentioned in Columbia Fall, Montana, considered too  toxic to clean up, that aluminum smelter plant is being 'quickly' cleaned up by Pruitt and the two guys from Whitefish.  I think Pruitt knows good and well why he needs his version of a 'scif' for his phone calls.  This pattern, this suicidal pattern of behavior spans whomever is in office, seems it is just the American Can Do Way!  And, not if I can help it!  Which, of course, dream on, but I will do my level best to at least inform not only news peoples back east who seemingly discount the entire rest of this country, and DC politicians too.  Both of those are a lot like scientists these days, or what passes for, in that they too are too compartmentalized, specialized and never grasp the Big picture or how one thing relates to another, such as heavily melanated persons housed at Hunter's Point.  It is no great leap from this to the skies.  This very long article was in last week's SF Sunday Chronicle, even as our free press rating just dropped to 45 in the world!  Men!!  Like kids in a candy store!  And our representation of women in government is rated 96th in the world!  Right with Pakistan!  #Me Too Mother Nature!  We need more free press and more women in government and I don't mean old bats, or Hillary who tried so hard, God knows why, to be just as male as the males.  Present company here excepted.  And get used to the term melanated as it is being widely used now and I welcome that as I hate saying black, white, brown, etc.  Non melanated, partially melanated, heavily melanated.  Our world is changing in more ways than pollution. But, Indigenous still holds its own, and the Indigenous peoples of the Amazon are now suing Chevron Canada and Chevron proper for the damages done to Ecuador lands and peoples, never paid out as Chevron hid out in Canada even trying to distance itself from itself via Chevron Canada.

      Rachel…..Hi, and thanks. But as a native Californian and with relatives in Bay Area, very disturbing news.  Slow kill.

      As for the unfortunate natives of Ecuador….suing Chevron, good luck with that.  Damage has been done.  Fait accompli.  Mission accomplished. 


    • Rachel Robson says:

      Hello Virginia, Hey look it up!  This is to fulfill the award of prior suit awarding 25 million, I think…but never paid as Chevron claimed not them but Canada Chevron.  This is in court in Canada soon and there is real hope.  I don't know how many of you have seen, read, watched videos of this problem which is so very typical of US extractions of Oil in remote countries, historically leaving the mess, the death, the inability to fish, even to acquire drinking water!  Sting and his wife fronted this issue and brought it to the world.  And, we are talking the precious Amazon.  There are many backing this and real progress has been made.  Rather than suing a nation, they are suing the corporation whose flimsy 'we are not Chevron but Chevron Canada' is not working against skilled lawyers and is poised to set a precedent that we here could use in geoengineering issues.  Notice how very many companies that do great harm are now in Canada, for protection in distancing from USA.  That itself is a shell game and if this suit works and it really might as already settled in court but never paid out, it would open that door for oh so much more.

      Hello All.

      The information that we are not getting enough vitamin D3 because the right frequency that should be reaching Earth's surface ( with Sunlight ) is being blocked by the aerosols of climate engineering ( even in days where spraying is lesser ), is the biggest single PROOF that climate engineering is a plan to kill ALL Life on Earth.

      Things like that do not happen by chance.

      And this is easy to prove scientifically.

  17. Robert says:

    I am becoming more alarmed every day, after having thought for years that there would be ample time to transition from a fossil-fuel-powered world to the solar-hydro-eolic paradigm. Now it seems we will all be gone within 10 years or so, if we don't act quickly. Every time I read of or hear about a pressing and compelling issue, in comparison to the possibility of total annihilation of life on the planet it becomes trite and meaningless.

  18. Paul Vonharnish says:

    Bella_Fantasia (early page comments) provides several links to articles describing Israeli atrocities occurring in Palestine. The Israeli State is a "policy" invention – not a biblical myth…

    Excerpted from: Balfour Declaration – Wikipedia

    The Balfour Declaration was a public statement issued by the British government during World War I announcing support for the establishment of a "national home for the Jewish people" in Palestine, then an Ottoman region with a minority Jewish population (around 3–5% of the total). It read:

    ‘His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.’

    The declaration was contained in a letter dated 2 November 1917 from the United Kingdom's Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Lord Rothschild, a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland. The text of the declaration was published in the press on 9 November 1917.

    Immediately following their declaration of war on the Ottoman Empire in November 1914, the British War Cabinet began to consider the future of Palestine. By late 1917, in the lead up to the Balfour Declaration, the wider war had reached a stalemate, with two of Britain's allies not fully engaged: the United States had yet to suffer a casualty, and the Russians were in the midst of a revolution. A stalemate in southern Palestine was broken by the Battle of Beersheba on 31 October 1917.” [End quote]

    It is instructive to read the balance of the complete text:

    Lord Rothschild,   Any questions?


    • virginia says:

      Thanks, Paul, for expanding on Bella's post re Palestine.

      As for Balfour Declaration… is done.  Again. Fait accompli.  This many years later, which government gives a rat's ass to what is legal regarding Israeli expansionism and state of legality as to a viable state?  All one needs to do is refer to the Sykes-Picot Agreement (between Britain and France) wherein Syria (which then included Lebanon and parts of Palestine and Jordan) was carved up to what is today an area mired in death, blood and destruction.   But. wait, all these years later, all these generations later, our good buddies France and Britain are at it again….trying to further carve up Syria.  It was such fun the first time…let's do it again.  This time they have the help of the former Ottoman Empire, USA and the old standby and instigator of it all…Israel.  Does history repeat itself?

      Paul, please, do one of your fabulous info posts on Sykes-Picot and its relevancy to current  events in the ancient countries – the fertile crescent where agriculture was born, where the alphabet was born, and too much history to point out here. Damascus, the oldest continually inhabited city in the world….live long.

      Meanwhile, where is my America? Not in my name is America involved in terror throughout the world…….800 bases in practically every country. Come home….look to our own well-being.  Save our people whose standard of living has declined so and will continue to do so.  Save our skies from the sh…t that threatens all life.  Come home and work for peace, not strife.  Thanks, again, Paul.

      The arrogance of the zionist psychopaths is infinite.

      these satanic creatures really believe that they are superior.

    • Hello virginia:  I've been meaning to compliment you on your extremely thoughtful contributions. Many readers come to these pages for solidarity and solace, and you seem to understand this very well. Thank you for joining in "the cause"…

      It would be impossible to condense the establishment of the Israeli State into less than a thousand pages.  The mythology of the Hebrew tribes begins in the arid lands just west of the Indus valley some 4300 years ago – then migrates through the ancient precincts of Sumer, Babylonia, Assyria, and Phoenicia.  As was noted in Egypt, Assyria, and ancient Hittite lands, it was far more difficult to “inherit” these lands when standing armies and fortified walls happen to be present… But as history now articulates: Economic infiltration is just as effective as direct assault.  It just takes longer to implement the crime… Suffice it to say; that seizures of lands and enslavement of life thereon is often accompanied by some notion that a god or deity made it less than an atrocity.

      Endorsement via deity is a common modus throughout human history. This delusion is of course; a mutually canceling psychic projection within a Universe that far exceeds any individual ambition… First there is a deity. Then there is no deity…

      Some personal comments from December, 2013.

      The "British Mandate for Palestine" was placed into enforcement in 1922 as a further "resolution" of the Balfour Declaration, which was only a reiteration of the Sykes–Picot Agreement of 1917.  French, British, and Hapsburg crown money is commonly used to support Zionist agenda, and the excerpt below is but another fine example. From: British Mandate for Palestine – Wikipedia

      The Sykes-Picot Agreement did not call for Arab sovereignty, but for the suzerainty of an Arab chief and an international administration, the form of which is to be decided upon after consultation with Russia, and subsequently in consultation with the other allies, and the representatives of the Sherif of Mecca."[13] Under the terms of that agreement, the Zionist Organization needed to secure an agreement along the lines of the Faisal-Weizmann Agreement with the Sherif of Mecca.

      Sorry, the balance of the text is extensive.  See:

      Traditional lands within the Mideast have been arbitrarily sectioned into oil plantations sanctioned by financial livestock and yielded credibility by religious bigots.  One group prays to bulls, the other wallows in their own bullshit.

    • Dennie says:

      It's amazing what kinds of thinking and action people will take part in in order to aid and abet their ultimate self-destruction.  The land grab known as the creation of a "homeland" for an itinerant homeless people known as Israelites was simply a pretext for getting a toehold in the middle east in order to suck the oil and stash the cash in the House of the Rothschilds, who participated in the masterminding of the deal (and incidentally, none of them live there…), undoubtedly rubbing their filthy lucre-tainted palms together at the mere thought of getting their paws on the money coming out of the ground in the middle east and the Black and Caspian Seas, directly into their banks…. but first, get the Armenians, who were in control of commerce in the area, out of the way, preferably in such a manner as to decimate, shock and terrify these people, and horrify the rest of the world into cowering before the masterminds and their henchmen of this massive Bolshevist-Jew propagated crime against humanity.  So put a crypto-Jew (Attaturk) and his Bolshevist crypto-Hebrew cronies in place and create a sick entity known as the "Young Turks," who were neither Turkish or young, but rather, rich older white crypto-Jewish males with huge egos who were only too happy, in their narcissistic need for power and control, to act as the agents of the Rothschilds, their string-pullers, in that insane family's mad grab for the resources that would fill their almighty coffers and create an  Anglo-American-Israeli money cabal that we have the privilege to witness continuing to play out its self-destructive hand, at least until they properly finish off their insane destruction of the entire planet.

      The littler Idiots-for-a-paycheck-and-a-pension who go to work every day from 8-5 to shut down and otherwise bully truth-telling websites into something their handlers attempt to call "obedience" might as well be stabbing themselves in the neck or shooting themselves in the head– can't these brilliant little order-following minds-with-blinders-on even so much as think to look sideways, see the light and recognize that the road they've chosen to ride is leading everything and everyone right over a cliff into a final total demise–??

    • Hey Dennie:  You totally nailed it.  The set up starts well before the Rothschild financial house.  So much intermarriage, so little time. > The long and winding road of the Hapsburg Crown lands:

      Excerpted from: House of Habsburg – Wikipedia 

      The House of Habsburg (/ˈhæpsbɜːrɡ/; German pronunciation: [ˈhaːpsbʊʁk], traditionally spelled Hapsburg in English), also called House of Austria[1] was one of the most influential and outstanding royal houses of Europe. The throne of the Holy Roman Empire was continuously occupied by the Habsburgs between 1438 and 1740. The house also produced emperors and kings of the Kingdom of Bohemia, Kingdom of England (Jure uxoris King), Kingdom of Germany, Kingdom of Hungary, Kingdom of Croatia, Kingdom of Illyria, Second Mexican Empire, Kingdom of Ireland (Jure uxoris King), Kingdom of Portugal, and Kingdom of Spain, as well as rulers of several Dutch and Italian principalities.[dubious discuss] From the 16th century, following the reign of Charles V, the dynasty was split between its Austrian and Spanish branches. Although they ruled distinct territories, they nevertheless maintained close relations and frequently intermarried.”  See “House of Hapsburg” full text according to Wikipedia:

    WHY DO WE NEED THE NEW GOVERNMENT? WHAT THE NEW GOVERNMENT HAS TO DO IN THE FIRST FEW DAYS ? ESTABLISH NEW LAWS FOR TO LEGALLY CONFISCATE ALL THE MONIES MADE UPON GEOENGINEERING, WEATHER MODIFICATION AND CLIMATE MODELING “BUSINESSES”, "GEOENGINEERED" MONEY MADE IN CONJUNCTION WITH COMMODITIES, AND MONEY RELATED TO CRIMINAL WEATHER/CLIMATE MANIPULATIONS ON MULTIBILLION-DOLLAR-MARKETS. This will stop a totally mad-bunch of the ruling morons from killing the natural environment, organic farming, and sustainable productions, and from demolishing all life-supporting resources on earth.  THE NEW GOVERNMENT must shut down Monsanto PRODUCING HIGHLY POISONOUS CHEMICALS AND GMO PRODUCTS for “treating the sick” and “feeding the hungry”  to Death.  THE NEW GOVERNMENT AND THE NEW  LAWS MUST Support Sustainable Agriculture, safer food, clean water and air, and do everything to restore nature’s environments everywhere on this planet, at least for the sake of our own survival!!

  20. marc says:

    As a followup to my previous report about the schizophrenic skies over Tucson, Arizona, I must report that today I am awash in incredulity for I am experiencing great disillusionment when I pause to consider that the big, beautiful puffy white flat-bottomed clouds that drape the canopy of sky over southern Arizona from horizon to horizon ARE LIKELY JUST ANOTHER TRUMAN SHOW CREATED BY THE GUTLESS LYING SACKS OF SHIT WHO IMAGINE THEMSELVES GODS OVER THIS WORLD. When I look out over the vast valley and see one or two beautiful puffy clouds that appear to be melting downward into a kind of mist it reminds me that something just ain't right with this picture. I have seen this phenomenon many times. But I gotta give 'em credit for creating something that is remarkably similar to visions of my youth when I lived here in the 70's. The dissimilarity between today's sky and the horror show 3 days ago is utterly and completely impossible by any known meteorology in the area. The grotesque manipulation of our skies could not possibly be more obvious…..except to the big babies who suck on their denial as if it were a "pacifier". And indeed, is this not an apt metaphor? Take away their pacifiers and what do you think happens? They cry and thrash about and have tantrums….until you jam the pacifier back into their pie-holes. 

       I actually have more than several friends here who don't go anywhere without their pacifier. It doesn't even matter HOW f**ked up the sky looks, they cling desperately to their little dreamworld. And anything or ANYONE who attempts to awaken them is analogous to taking away their pacifier.  Enough said……Maybe not. Perhaps it must be said that it is "human nature" to resist taking in this kind of knowledge, to resist when SOMEONE TELLS YOU THAT UNLESS SOMETHING CHANGES, WE'RE ALL GONNA BE LIKE SLIM PICKENS RIDING THE ATOM BOMB TO UTTER DISINTEGRATION. 

      When I meet with such resistance I simply say:…….get off yer ass and f**king learn something about what's REALLY going on….

       Have a nice evening…

      marc…my sentiments exactly.  I knew there was something very sinister about the cloud formations in California, having been a native Californian for my entire life.  So, I found two sites which state the facts clearly, but they are shoving a lot of the sinister part about it under the rug, and why we are experiencing flu-like symptoms three times a year.  The one article by a Rebecca Boyle, and the site Pop-Sci speaks about earth's clouds 'sinking' to help cool the planet. Bah!


      I can remember as a child, living in So. Cal. and only getting sick every five years, not every three months with flu-like symptoms.  When the Alaskan Pipeline was bulit in back in th early 1980's people in Alaska were becoming sick with flu-like symptoms AFTER the gasoline had had additives put into it.  The cooler weather was not allowing whatever was in the additives to 'burn off' by natural the warmth of the sun because of the time of year.  But those additives were not ever reduced, and additives began being put into gasoline all over the world; and someone, somewhere, knew this could be another way of population control, etc.  Keep the additives in the gasoline/jet fuel too and poison the general public.  Conspiracy theory, whatever, we are not healthy anymore, even when we think we are eating right.  Our skies are full of toxicity.  And like Dane has reported from many sources, earth is dying and so are we.

    Puyallup Farmers market week #2 First Dane your radio broadcasts are so effective. I am seeing/hearing the impact you are having and it certainly keeps me updated per every awareness engagement. Thank-you!

    I just couldnt wait to write this report today after an incredibly successful day at our booth. We just had a few days of 82 plus degrees 2 days ago to a muggy cool down rain with temps at 57 for high. 20 degree switch in 24 hrs. SO with all the rain we were not sure about setting up in wet muddy grassy area etc…but my husband Larry and I pushed each other to get there as we said what if we miss someone who needs to know! WELL, what a day and I hope this brings encouragement to all my "friends" here at this site. Today was our busiest day despite the rain. The highlight family for this report is what I have long awaited for and thats a God loving family attending back-n-forth a local popular church but because they are awake to all the atrocities and sickness happening but are frustrated with the church being asleep. They did not know much about Climate engineering, we explained, they understood it and talked extensively. We spoke of the 501C3 tax exempt issue among all others. These people are and have been on fire for getting the truth out to awaken the masses.  She said..we need to get people connected as they have felt alone. From pharma to anti-vaccination to you name they knew it all. What a pleasure and a great way to know we did the right thing to show up today. Among many, many others today! A couple so mind blown and grateful to get info for what they have been seeing. A few returns letting us know they read the material we gave them and spent HOURS investigating from last week.

    We again had countless Thank-you's and people wanting to get involved. We woke up many people. I finally feel like something is happening in the Washington state. I cannot stress enough that people are seeing stuff and seeds of awareness are being watered! Another highlight was a lady( Teacher in a local school) who nearly passed on by the booth but I called her over offering a flyer and she said " ya know my sister has been trying to tell me about this stuff" She asked so many questions and thanked us for the Facts we gave her.

    On to the next one…..


  22. Readers should consider this quote from Dane's Geoengineering Watch page dated October 5. 2017:

    "There’s still a lot we don’t understand about how climate change will affect Antarctica, and this study adds one piece to the puzzle. The big question scientists are trying to answer is: how much will sea levels rise? The answer is key for the future of American cities like Miami and New York — and all the people and businesses who call those places home."

    Then consider this: > Col. Larry Wilkerson: Pentagon Plans for Climate Change despite White House  April 9, 2018

    A recent report from the World Bank says that climate change could displace as many as 143 million people by 2050, generating geopolitical instability and posing new threats to national security. Can the Pentagon properly manage the threats with a climate denialist in the White House? We speak to Col. Larry Wilkerson.

    It is important to key into Mr. Wilkerson’s’ comments beginning at 9:00 minutes into the interview. Mr. Wilkerson posits that ocean levels may rise at 5 to 6 times the original estimates of consensus science. Mr. Wilkerson’s strategy group needs a serious wakeup call concerning militarized aerosol impacts on atmospheric heating. (As if they don’t know already…)

    • Rachel Robson says:

      Paul, Just to pile on, last Sunday's Earthweek Diary:  Antarctica melt: "Antarctica's Larsen C ice shelf now melts in the dead of winter when the average temperature on the adjacent Antarctic Peninsula is only 5 degrees.  It's been known for a while that Antarctic ice shelves are thinning and retreating, mainly because warmer currents below are melting them.  But new remote sensors have found that down slope winds can also cause them to thin.  Theses can cause air temperatures to rise several degrees."

    • Rachel Robson says:

      Paul and all, For whatever it is worth, I did watch 'Decoding The Weather Machine' last night, coming in about 10 minutes late.  Of course it did not mention weather modification, but it did sound the alarm loud and clear about the state of the planet and in some detail, and rather well done, but for what we know.  They said the way Antarctica is melting will itself raise the seas by as much as 8 feet!!!  Holy… and that is not counting the Arctic and other melts, such as glaciers elsewhere. The urgency they voiced was in fact scary.

      Hello, Rachel, based on available data, it is all but certain that the entire cryosphere is already descending into irreversable meltdown. The sea level rises actually on the horizon are far higher than the source you cited.

    An article from the Ever-Astute John Whitehead:


    Is The US Government Evil? You Decide

    John Whitehead 4.27.18

    “The greatest evil is not now done … in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern.”

    ― C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters

    Is the U.S. government evil?

    You tell me.

    This is a government that treats its citizens like faceless statistics and economic units to be bought, sold, bartered, traded, tracked, tortured, and eventually eliminated once they’ve outgrown their usefulness.

    This is a government that treats human beings like lab rats to be caged, branded, experimented upon, and then discarded and left to suffer from the after-effects.

    This is a government that repeatedly lies, cheats, steals, spies, kills, maims, enslaves, breaks the laws, overreaches its authority, and abuses its power at almost every turn.

    This is a government that wages wars for profit, jails its own people for profit, and then turns a blind eye and a deaf ear while its henchmen rape and kill and pillage.

    No, this is not a government that can be trusted to do what is right or moral or humane or honorable but instead seems to gravitate towards corruption, malevolence, misconduct, greed, cruelty, brutality and injustice.

    This is not a government you should trust with your life, your loved ones, your livelihood or your freedoms.

    This is the face of evil, disguised as a democracy, sold to the people as an institution that has their best interests at heart.

    Don’t fall for the lie.

    The government has never had our best interests at heart.

    Endless wars. The government didn’t have our best interests at heart when it propelled us into endless oil-fueled wars and military occupations in the Middle East that wreaked havoc on our economy, stretched thin our military resources and subjected us to horrific blowback.

    A police state. There is no way the government had our best interests at heart when it passed laws subjecting us to all manner of invasive searches and surveillance, censoring our speech and stifling our expression, rendering us anti-government extremists for daring to disagree with its dictates, locking us up for criticizing government policies on social media, encouraging Americans to spy and snitch on their fellow citizens, and allowing government agents to grope, strip, search, taser, shoot and kill us.

    Battlefield America. Certainly the government did not have our best interests at heart when it turned America into a battlefield, transforming law enforcement agencies into extensions of the military, conducting military drills on domestic soil, distributing “free” military equipment and weaponry to local police, and desensitizing Americans to the menace of the police state with active shooter drills, color-coded terror alerts, and randomly conducted security checkpoints at “soft” targets such as shopping malls and sports arenas.

    School-to-prison pipeline. It would be a reach to suggest that the government had our best interests at heart when it locked down the schools, installing metal detectors and surveillance cameras, adopting zero tolerance policies that punish childish behavior as harshly as criminal actions, and teaching our young people that they have no rights, that being force-fed facts is education rather than indoctrination, that they are not to question governmental authority, that they must meekly accept a life of censorship, round-the-clock surveillance, roadside blood draws, SWAT team raids and other indignities.

    Secret human experimentation. One would also be hard-pressed to suggest that the American government had our best interests at heart when it conducted secret experiments on an unsuspecting populace—citizens and noncitizens alike—making healthy people sick by spraying them with chemicals, injecting them with infectious diseases and exposing them to airborne toxins. The government reasoned that it was legitimate (and cheaper) to experiment on people who did not have full rights in society such as prisoners, mental patients, and poor blacks.

    As the Associated Press reports, “The late 1940s and 1950s saw huge growth in the U.S. pharmaceutical and health care industries, accompanied by a boom in prisoner experiments funded by both the government and corporations. By the 1960s, at least half the states allowed prisoners to be used as medical guinea pigs … because they were cheaper than chimpanzees.”

    In Alabama, for example, 600 black men with syphilis were allowed to suffer without proper medical treatment so that the government could study the natural progression of untreated syphilis. In California, older prisoners were implanted with testicles from livestock and executed convicts so the government could test their virility.

    In Connecticut, mental patients were injected with hepatitis so the government could study the disease. In Maryland, sleeping prisoners had a pandemic flu virus sprayed up their noses so the government could monitor their symptoms. In Georgia, two dozen “volunteering” prison inmates had gonorrhea bacteria pumped directly into their urinary tracts through the penis so the government could work on a cure.

    In Michigan, male patients at an insane asylum were exposed to the flu so the government could experiment with a flu vaccine. In Minnesota, 11 public service employee “volunteers” were injected with malaria, then starved for five days, so the government could study the impact.

    In New York, prisoners at a reformatory prison were split into two groups to determine how a deadly stomach virus was spread: the first group was made to swallow an unfiltered stool suspension, while the second group merely breathed in germs sprayed into the air. In Staten Island, children with mental retardation were given hepatitis orally and by injection to see if they could then be cured.

    Unfortunately, these incidents are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the atrocities the government has inflicted on an unsuspecting populace in the name of secret experimentation.

    For instance, there was the U.S. military’s secret race-based testing of mustard gas on more than 60,000 enlisted men (African-Americans, Japanese-Americans, Hispanics, etc.). As NPR reports, “All of the World War II experiments with mustard gas were done in secret and weren’t recorded on the subjects’ official military records. Most do not have proof of what they went through. They received no follow-up health care or monitoring of any kind. And they were sworn to secrecy about the tests under threat of dishonorable discharge and military prison time, leaving some unable to receive adequate medical treatment for their injuries, because they couldn’t tell doctors what happened to them.”

    And then there was the CIA’s Cold War-era program, MKULTRA, in which the government began secretly experimenting on hundreds of unsuspecting American civilians and military personnel by dosing them with LSD, some having the hallucinogenic drug secretly slipped into their drinks, so that the government could explore its uses in brainwashing and controlling targets. The CIA spent nearly $20 million on its MKULTRA program, reportedly as a means of programming people to carry out assassinations and, to a lesser degree, inducing anxieties and erasing memories, before it was supposedly shut down.

    Similarly, the top-secret Montauk Project, the inspiration for the hit Netflix series Stranger Things, allegedly was working to develop mind-control techniques that would then be tested out on locals in a nearby village, triggering crime waves or causing teenagers to congregate.

    Sounds like the stuff of conspiracy theorists, I know, but the government’s track record of treating Americans like lab rats has been well-documented, including its attempts to expose whole communities to various toxins as part of its efforts to develop lethal biological weapons and study their impact and delivery methods on unsuspecting populations.

    In 1949, for instance, the government sprayed bacteria into the Pentagon’s air handling system, then the world’s largest office building. In 1950, special ops forces sprayed bacteria from Navy ships off the coast of Norfolk and San Francisco, in the latter case exposing all of the city’s 800,000 residents.

    In 1953, government operatives staged “mock” anthrax attacks on St. Louis, Minneapolis, and Winnipeg using generators placed on top of cars. Local governments were reportedly told that “‘invisible smokescreen[s]’ were being deployed to mask the city on enemy radar.” Later experiments covered territory as wide-ranging as Ohio to Texas and Michigan to Kansas.

    In 1965, the government’s experiments in bioterror took aim at Washington’s National Airport, followed by a 1966 experiment in which army scientists exposed a million subway NYC passengers to airborne bacteria that causes food poisoning.

    Now one might argue that this is all ancient history and that the government today is different from the government of yesteryear, but has the U.S. government really changed?

    Ask yourself: Has the government become any more humane, any more respectful of the rights of the citizenry? Has it become any more transparent or willing to abide by the rule of law? Has it become any more truthful about its activities? Has it become any more cognizant of its appointed role as a guardian of our rights?

    Or, having mastered the Orwellian art of Doublespeak and followed the Huxleyan blueprint for distraction and diversion, has the government simply gotten craftier and more conniving, better able to hide its nefarious acts and dastardly experiments under layers of secrecy, legalism and obfuscations?

    Consider this: after revelations about the government’s experiments spanning the 20th century spawned outrage, the government began looking for human guinea pigs in other countries, where “clinical trials could be done more cheaply and with fewer rules.”

    In Guatemala, prisoners and patients at a mental hospital were infected with syphilis, “apparently to test whether penicillin could prevent some sexually transmitted disease.” More recently, U.S.-funded doctors “failed to give the AIDS drug AZT to all the HIV-infected pregnant women in a study in Uganda even though it would have protected their newborns.” Meanwhile, in Nigeria, children with meningitis were used to test an antibiotic named Trovan. Eleven children died and many others were left disabled.

    What kind of government perpetrates such horrific acts on human beings, whether or not they are American citizens?

    Is there any difference between a government mindset that justifies experimenting on prisoners because they’re “cheaper than chimpanzees” and a government that sanctions jailhouse strip searches of individuals charged with minor infractions simply because it’s easier on a jail warden’s workload?

    John Lennon was right: “We’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends.”

    Unfortunately, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Just recently, for example, a Fusion Center in Washington State (a Dept. of Homeland Security-linked data collection clearinghouse that shares information between state, local and federal agencies) inadvertently released records on remote mind control tactics (the use of “psycho-electronic” weapons to control people from a distance or subject them to varying degrees of pain).

    Mind you, there is no clear evidence to suggest that these particular documents were created by a government agency. Then again, the government—no stranger to diabolical deeds or shady experiments carried out an unsuspecting populace—has done it before.

    After all, this is a government that has become almost indistinguishable from the evil it claims to be fighting, whether that evil takes the form of terrorism, torture, drug traffickingsex trafficking, murder, violence, theft, pornography, scientific experimentations or some other diabolical means of inflicting pain, suffering and servitude on humanity.

    For too long now, the American people have been persuaded to barter their freedoms for phantom promises of security and, in the process, have rationalized turning a blind eye to all manner of government wrongdoing—asset forfeiture schemes, corruption, surveillance, endless wars, SWAT team raids, militarized police, profit-driven private prisons, and so on—because they were the so-called lesser of two evils.

    No matter how you rationalize it, the lesser of two evils is still evil.

    There’s a scene in The Third Man, Carol Reed’s influential 1949 film starring Joseph Cotten and Orson Welles in which a rogue war profiteer (Harry Lime) views human carnage with a callous indifference, unconcerned that the diluted penicillin he’s been trafficking underground has resulted in the tortured deaths of young children.

    Challenged by his old friend Holly Martins to consider the consequences of his actions, Lime responds, “In these days, old man, nobody thinks in terms of human beings. Governments don’t, so why should we?”

    “Have you ever seen any of your victims?” asks Martins.

    “Victims?” responds Lime, as he looks down from the top of a Ferris wheel onto a populace reduced to mere dots on the ground. “Look down there. Tell me. Would you really feel any pity if one of those dots stopped moving forever? If I offered you twenty thousand pounds for every dot that stopped, would you really, old man, tell me to keep my money, or would you calculate how many dots you could afford to spare?”

    Lime’s callous indifference is no different from the U.S. government’s calculating cost-benefit analyses.

    In the eyes of the government, “we the people” are chump change.

    So why do Americans keep believing the government has their best interests at heart?

    Why do Americans keep trusting the government?

    Why do Americans pretend not to know what is so obvious to anyone with eyes and ears and a conscience?

    As Carl Sagan recognized, “If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”

    We should never have trusted the government in the first place.

    That’s why the Founders came up with a Bill of Rights. They recognized that without binding legal protections affirming the rights of the people, the newly instituted American government would be no better than the old British despot.

    It was Thomas Jefferson who warned, “In questions of power then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

    Unfortunately, we didn’t heed the warning.

    As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American Peoplethe government has ripped the Constitution to shreds and left us powerless in the face of its power grabs, greed and brutality.

    So how do you fight back?

    How do you fight injustice? How do you push back against tyranny? How do you vanquish evil?

    You don’t fight it by hiding your head in the sand.

    Stop being apathetic. Stop being neutral. Stop being accomplices.

    Start recognizing evil and injustice and tyranny for what they are. Demand government transparency. Vote with your feet (i.e., engage in activism, not just politics). Refuse to play politics with your principles. Don’t settle for the lesser of two evils.

    As British statesman Edmund Burke warned, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men [and women] to do nothing.”

    It’s time for good men and women to do something. And soon.

      Hello Star Messenger, The 'garbage patch' you refer to is not exactly in our neck of the woods, it is far out there and twice as big as Texas, but news is that it is far more deep than previously thought.  It is one of 5 in the world, but it is the largest, if not the only one, the others all over the world, and this problem just keeps growing.  However, bacteria have been discovered eating plastic!  "Mutant plastic-dissolving enzymes could help curb the increasing global plastic pollution that threatens marine life.  Researchers were studying a bacterium discovered at a Japanese dump in 2016 that had naturally evolved to eat plastic.  While using beams of X-rays to examine the structure of the key enzyme produced by the bacterium, they accidentally improved the enzyme's ability to break down the kind of plastic used to make beverage bottles." So, some hope for plastic, death by plastic, but not so much for petrochemicals.  Which are Everywhere!  I mean in our clothing, for one, as well as so much other 'fabrics' from curtains to sofas.  The stuff is everywhere–hello polyester!  Runoff from agriculture is obvious, but what about landfills?  Can you imagine all the landfills all over the world? And, often placed near oceans or other waters.  I want this crap outta my life and do my best to avoid all of its hideous, life destroying off spring.

    • Hello William: Thank you for posting this significant article. The article dovetails into several recent independent investigations into oceanic heating and fisheries die-offs.

      Global Warming's Impact on Ocean Currents to Amplify Sea Level Rise

      April 19, 2018

      A new study shows that the Atlantic's currents have weakened due to global warming and are closer to catastrophic collapse than any time in the last 1,600 years, which could cause rapid sea level rise on the East Coast of North America. One of the study's lead authors explains.

    • Rachel Robson says:

      Paul,  I was gonna ask Dane about this but: "The long-feared weakening of the huge Atlantic Ocean circulation from climate change appears to be under way.  The Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation carries warmth to high latitudes and makes Northern Europe much more temperate than it otherwise would be.  It's also crucial fro fisheries off the coasts of New England and the Canadian Maritime Provinces.  But scientists from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research write in the journal Nature that the current has declined in strength by 15% since the mid-20th century, reaching a record low.  Melting glaciers and ice sheets are blamed."     I can think of a few other things to blame!  My questions about this are with reference to current weather in Europe and on our east coast.  I don't quite get how all this works and what happens next?

      Meanwhile, in Australia: "Australian scientists have developed a 'sun shield' they hope can save the Great Barrier Reef from coral bleaching.  The shield is an ultra-thin biodegradable film that floats on the ocean's surface.  The shield contains the same compound corals use to make their hard skeletons."  Like, that's gonna work!

    Army issues waivers to more than 1,000 recruits for bipolar, depression, self-mutilation
    USA Today / April 26, 2018
    WASHINGTON — The Army issued waivers over 13 months to more than 1,000 recruits who had been diagnosed and treated for mood disorders and 95 more for self-mutilation, according to data obtained by USA TODAY.  The acceptance of new soldiers with a history of serious behavioral health issues, some of which can be lifelong challenges, came as the Army struggled to meet its recruiting goals.  The time period ran from Oct. 1, 2016, through Oct. 31, 2017.
    Last week, Army Secretary Mark Esper indicated that the Army issues waivers only for mental health issues that have been resolved or upon further review were misdiagnosed.  There were no waivers issued for a history of drug overdoses or suicide attempts.   “As the stigma of seeking therapy or counseling becomes less of an issue than when I grew up, you’ll see probably more cause for waivers,” Esper said. “But again, the waiver is only for an historical condition that we look at and assess. We do not allow anybody in who is undergoing therapy, who is a cutter or was a cutter, identified clearly as a cutter or is using drugs. They are not allowed into the service. And I will not accept them. Quality trumps quantity every single day of the week.”
    Mood disorders include conditions such as bipolar disorder and severe depression. Self-mutilation can indicate deep psychological problems.  “Bipolar in most cases is a lifelong challenge,” said Elspeth Cameron Ritchie, a psychiatrist who retired from the Army as a colonel in 2010 and is an expert on waivers for military service. “It is more of a challenge when you’re younger and is not something you can simply be clear of. You’re often on medication for life.”

    • Rachel Robson says:

      Hello Susan,  If I read this correctly and I did try, Epser says only for issues that have been resolved or were misdiagnosed.  He further states No cutters, no drug users and no one currently undergoing therapy.  He mentions the stigma he grew up with, and I can relate to that because I do remember these stigmas being so severe they actually kept many from getting the help they need, owing to life long stigma.  And boy do I wish that had Not been the case, as so many I knew really needed help, and I well recall the embarrassment of stigma, even for things that these days would pass for reasonable under the circumstances, treated, better and done.  So, I think this is to be commended as other areas in life do continue this stigma even now, which does prevent many from getting help.  This is not clear about bipolar and severe depression.  Both of which usually require medication.  Clearly, unless an office job or such, a soldier could not function well in field if requiring medication.  Also clearly, they seem to be saying they are short on 'manpower'.  This is better than a draft, which I fear.  Or, a 'private' army, run by a different entity, like Blackwater.  Right?  Or? 

    • Frank says:

      Will it really surprise anybody if we find someday that bipolar is another "geoengineering" disease, like Alzheimers, dementia, and autism? caused more by the unnatural ingredients in our daily lives than whatever they think is causing it now. It seems like another one of those disorders whose existence is a question of a position on a spectrum – with more cases leaning into the pathological range.

    DoD: At least 126 [miltary] bases report water contaminants linked to cancer, birth defects
    By: Tara Copp / April 27, 2018 / The Military Times
    The water at or around 126 military installations contains potentially harmful levels of perfluorinated compounds, which have been linked to cancers and developmental delays for fetuses and infants, the Pentagon has found.  In a March report provided to the House Armed Services Committee, the Pentagon for the first time publicly listed the full scope of the known contamination. The Defense Department identified 401 active and Base Closure and Realignment installations in the United States with at least one area where there was a known or suspected release of perfluorinated compounds.
    These included 36 sites with drinking water contamination on-base, and more than 90 sites that reported either on-base or off-base drinking water or groundwater contamination, in which the water source tested above the Environmental Protection Agency’s acceptable levels of perfluorooctane sulfonate or perfluorooctanoic acid, also known as PFOS and PFOAs. The man-made chemicals, which can be used to make items heat or water resistant, are found in everyday household, food and clothing items, even take-out food wrappers.  At military bases, however, they are concentrated in the foam used to put out aircraft fires.
    Maureen Sullivan, deputy assistant secretary of defense for environment, safety and occupational health, said DoD has already made safety changes at affected bases, including installing filters and providing bottled water to families living there.  It has also released the full list of installations, reported in a lengthy chart attached toward the end of the congressional report, and will be working with the Centers for Disease Control next year on a study of the potential long-term effects of exposure.
    Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson was asked about the exposure this week on Capitol HIll, where she was testifying about the service’s fiscal 2019 budget needs.  “It’s an issue not just in New Hampshire, but at military installations across this country,” said Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-New Hampshire. “We have 1,500 people who have been tested with elevated levels in the Portsmouth area, who are anxious about their future and their children’s future. And I know there are many people throughout the Air Force and our other military installations who share that concern.”
    In all, 25 Army bases; 50 Air Force bases, 49 Navy or Marine Corps bases and two Defense Logistics Agency sites have tested at higher than acceptable levels for the compounds in either their drinking water or groundwater sources. Additionally, DoD tested 2,668 groundwater wells both on and in the surrounding off-base community and found that 61 percent of them tested above the EPA’s recommended levels.
    In 2016 the EPA established a new, lower guideline for acceptable levels of PFOS or PFOA levels in water supplies: no more 70 parts per trillion. While the EPA did not make the guidelines enforceable, DoD decided to test all of its locations and work toward complying with the new standards. It won’t be a quick fix, Sullivan said.  The first target for the department was to address the 36 direct drinking water sources that are contaminated and “cut off that human exposure as soon as possible,” Sullivan said.  DoD was only able to do that quickly at the 24 locations where it manages the water supply. At those locations it has installed filters at the water source or inside base housing, relocated water usage to another well, or provided alternate drinking water, such as water bottles, for personnel, Sullivan said.  For the other 12 drinking water sources, provided either by a contracted vendor or through the local utility, it’s a harder fix, because the EPA’s guidelines are not enforceable. For example, commercial airports and industrial sites also use the foam, which could impact a municipality’s drinking water, but it will be up to that municipality to determine if it will test and make fixes to comply with the EPA’s guidelines…
    DoD has already spent $200 million studying and testing its water supply, and also providing either filters, alternate wells or bottled water to address contamination.  For the groundwater sources, both on-base and off-base, however, cleanup will take years to address, Sullivan said. Those groundwater sites will be added to the department’s long list of environmental cleanup responsibilities it has at each of its more than 2,900 facilities around the world, and will prioritize that cleanup based on risk. Sullivan estimates the groundwater perfluorinate cleanup will add about $2 billion to the $27 billion previously identified cleanup projects for which the department is responsible. The services are also phasing out the firefighting foam they use and working on replacements that do not contain perfluorinated compounds, Sullivan said.

      Susan, again, gee, multiply this times our population in general!  This stuff lurks everywhere, as mentioned, even in take out food containers and wrappers.  It is about time!  I'm impressed.  I thought nothing was being done and this may be too late for many but high time to be recognized and I did not foresee the Services as leading the pack!

      I could not get through last Sunday's paper here, its first section as it focused on Hunters Point in SF area, once a major military/Navy site that handled radioactive material.  Turns out, this Super Fund site was not cleaned up properly at all, yet built and sold and rented in parts.  Also turns out the place is chock full of radioactivity that was in ground, soil, and carted off to all sorts of places it was not supposed to be.  It could and is Everywhere now!  People did try to raise the issue but there is so much pressure for housing.  By now, I just assume this, that and the other are Everywhere, contaminating Everything including waters, both drinking and land and sea.  'We' humans have been so very short sighted and even criminal in neglecting our waste products of all sorts.  I suspect that nothing and no one is clean, pure anymore.  What a sad realization.  And, the DoD leads the way???!

      There more we learn, we see the Israeli tail wags the American dog.  The Zionist priorities, settlements and maltreatment of Palestinians couldn't happen without the massive aid the US hands over to Israel.

      The reports in the US about today's protest deaths and injuries in Gaza, are small compared to the actual figures.  Three killed and 174 wounded quickly became more killed and the wounded went from 1070 to 1700 to 5511, with 40 killed.  Please send a donation to Doctors Without Borders, if you can. The injuries they're seeing will take long recoveries and will permanently disable many people.  The protests have been non-violent but the Zionists tell Palestinians that HAMAs is to blame.

      Here is a video of cheering IDF soldiers taking pot shots at Palestinians, in their own neighborhood, trying to clear a deliberately blocked road. The soldiers are so brazenly proud of themselves, even as they are reminded to temper their joy over harming these people.

      16 year old protester Ahed Tamini just got 8 years in prison for slapping an IDF soldier who had just shot her cousin in the head causing a very severe injury.  Among other things, 'officials' have called for her to be raped in jail, or say she should have been shot in knee and put under house arrest for her entire life.  The overt viscousness expressed by Zionists is breathtaking.

      Watch Abby Martin interview young Israelis about what should be done about Palestinians.  This sort of hate, calling for murder, goes way beyond South African apartheid.

      And it gets worse when the Israeli government justifies killing Palestinian child protesters in Gaza:  They Are Not In School!
