US Government Orders 14 Million Doses of Potassium Iodide

The Department of Health and Human Services has ordered 14 million doses of potassium iodide, the compound that protects the body from radioactive poisoning in the aftermath of severe nuclear accidents, to be delivered before the beginning of February.

US Government Orders 14 Million Doses of Potassium Iodide 010114pot

According to a solicitation posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website, the DHHS asks contractors to supply, “potassium iodide tablet, 65mg, unit dose package of 20s; 700,000 packages (of 20s),” a total of 14 million tablets. The packages must be delivered on or before February 1, 2014.

Potassium iodide helps block radioactive iodine from being absorbed by the thyroid gland and is used by victims of severe nuclear accidents or emergencies. Under current regulations, states with populations living within 10 miles of a nuclear plant are encouraged, but not required, to maintain a supply of potassium iodide.

A search of the FedBizOpps website returns no other results regarding the purchase of potassium iodide from any government agency, suggesting that the DHHS bulk buy of the tablets is unprecedented in recent times.

The ongoing crisis at the Fukushima nuclear power plant has prompted concerns that the purchase is connected to the threat posed by radioactive debris washing up on the shores of the west coast or the potential for another natural disaster occurring in Japan which could impact the U.S.

“Governments usually respond to disasters very similarly; first move is to avoid panic,” writes The West Wire. “The Japanese didnt want to panic the world, or tarnish their honor and now, as a consequence of their reluctance, Japanese citizens and international aid personal find themselves in a horrible state of being.”

“Panic is usually avoided by keeping their citizens as blind to the truth as possible, until confrontation with the truth becomes inevitable. The crucial question at this juncture; would our government be reluctant about warning us of potential disaster, in an attempt to avoid panic? 14 million doses of Potassium Iodide say that might just be the case.”

Last month it was revealed that 71 U.S. sailors who helped during the initial Fukushima relief efforts are suing the Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) after they returned with thyroid cancer, Leukemia, and brain tumors as a result of being exposed to radiation at 300 times the safe level.

TEPCO has repeatedly been caught lying in their efforts to downplay the scale of the disaster. In September it was confirmed that radiation readings around the power plant were 18 times higher than previously reported by TEPCO. After a tank leaked 300 tonnes of toxic water in August, groundwater radiation readings at the plant soared to 400,000 becquerels per litre, the highest reading since the nuclear accident occurred in March 2011.

Top scientists have warned that if another major earthquake hits Fukushima, which is almost inevitable, it would mean “bye bye Japan” and the complete evacuation of the west coast of North America.

Now that radioactive debris is hitting the West Coast of North America, numerous different animals and sea life are suffering from mysterious diseases, including 20 bald eagles that have died in Utah over the last few weeks alone.

They’re Going to Dump the Fukushima Radiation Into the Ocean

Tepco is planning on dumping all of the radioactive water stored at Fukushima into the ocean.

The industry-controlled nuclear regulators are pushing for dumping the radiation, as well.

As EneNews reports:

Juan Carlos Lentijo, head of IAEA’s mission to Fukushima Daiichi, Dec. 4, 2013: “Controlled discharge is a regular practice in all the nuclear facilities in the world. And what we are trying to say here is to consider this as one of the options to contribute to a good balance of risks and to stabilize the facility for the long term.”

Shunichi Tanaka, chairman of Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority, Dec. 4, 2013: “You cannot keep storing the water forever. We have to make choice comparing all risks involved.”

Xinhua, Dec. 4, 2013: Lentijo said that TEPCO should weigh the possible damaging effects of discharging toxic water against the total risks involved in the overall decommissioning work process. […] Tanaka highlighted the fact that while highly radioactive water could be decontaminated in around seven years, the amount of water containing tritium will keep rising, topping 700,000 tons in two years. […] nuclear experts have repeatedly pointed out that [tritium] is still a significant radiation hazard when inhaled, ingested via food or water, or absorbed through the skin. […] fisherman, industries and fisheries bodies in the Fukushima area and beyond in Japan’s northeast, have collectively baulked at the idea of releasing toxic water into the sea […] TEPCO will be duty-bound to submit assessments of the safety and environmental impact […]

NHK, Dec. 4, 2013: IAEA team leader Juan Carlos Lentijo […] said it is necessary and indispensable to assess the impact the tritium discharge might have on human health and the environment, and to get government approval as well as consent from concerned people.

Japan Times, Dec. 4, 2013: “Of course . . . public acceptance for this purpose is necessary,” said Lentijo, adding strict monitoring of the impact of the discharge would also be essential.

AFP, Dec. 4, 2013: [L]ocal fishermen, neighbouring countries and environmental groups all oppose the idea.

In the real world, there is no safe level of radiation.

And there are alternatives.

Dr. Arjun Makhijani – a recognized expert on nuclear power, who has testified before Congress, served as an expert witness in Nuclear Regulatory Commission proceedings, and been interviewed by many of the largest news organizations – told PBS in March:

We actually sent a proposal to Japan two years ago, some colleagues of mine and I, saying you should park a supertanker or a large tanker offshore, and put the water in it, and send it off someplace else so that the water treatment and the water management is not such a huge, constant issue. But [the Japanese declined].

Tepco – with no financial incentive to actually fix things – has been insanely irresponsible and has only been pretending to contain Fukushima. And see this.

Unfortunately, Japan has devolved into crony capitalism … and even tyranny.

So instead of doing something to contain the radiation, they’re going to dump it.

Sodium Fluoride

Fluoride is not a pharmaceutical grade additive; it is a by-product of various products and industrial processes. Steel, aluminum, fertilizer, glass, and cement are but a few products which generate fluorine gases. Regulatory laws prevent industries from expelling fluoride and other gases harmful to the environment from smokestacks. Due to this regulation, “scrubbers” are installed to prevent the gases from escaping into the air, and as result is collected and stored. Instead of paying fees and incurring expenses to get rid of this waste, fluoride is sold like a commodity to corporations and municipalities which in turn is added to toothpaste, drinking water, infant formula, and many processed foods and beverages.

Although the argument for the use of fluoride in prevention of tooth decay remains prominent, experts in toxicology, various health sciences, and curious minds alike have pursued studies and research that coincide with the negative effects of fluoride being the underlying issue. Some of the stated affects of fluoridation are cancer, dental fluorosis, increased hip fracture (as it accumulates in hip bones), and various other serious ailments that have been identified in animal research. Some research suggests fluoride was used as a means to make prisoners, and the public in some cases, docile as a means of being easily controlled.

The issue is laden with controversy and is arguably a matter of significant importance to society as well as Big Business. Most will agree, to a certain extent, that corruption permeates through even the most vital sectors of business and government. Is the dilution of toxic waste in human consumption products the result of the nature of this organism? As with many matters, we have to filter the vast amount of information to find the, sometimes inconceivable, truth. The subject of water fluoridation is no different and must be questioned with an open mind.
As a note, 66% of U.S. water supplies are currently fluoridated, while 98% of Western Europe has rejected Water Fluoridation

The International Monetary Fund

imfAccording to the IMF website, The International Monetary Fund (IMF) carries out surveillance, lending, and technical assistance to developing countries and countries with balance of payment difficulties. Essentially the IMF is considered the “Global Fund of Last Resort.” Established in August of 1944 during the United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference, the IMF is funded by its current 185 member nations. Countries with payment imbalances borrow from the fund, temporarily, at an average rate of 3.49%. The “Conditionalities” of membership arguably produce worse outcomes for the troubled nations in need.

As an example, troubled nations must sell national assets, including natural resources, often to corporations, for pennies on the dollar, as a condition for aid. The IMF is headquartered in Washington D.C. and the U.S. has exclusive veto power within the IMF. In 2008, the IMF fell short of its budget by $400 million. During the 2009 G-20 summit, the IMF budget was tripled to $1 trillion. The IMF has gained criticism from economists and current member nations. Many argue that the IMF causes a certain degree of isolationism and a false sense of security within nations that would otherwise cleanse their economies by making genuine improvements, which hardly ever starts out for the best of every individual, but creates an opportunity to emerge stronger in areas such as innovation and financial management.

The situation is analogous to an individual person coming into hard times, but it just so happens they have a rich uncle that gives them however much many they feel they need to get back on their feet. Even if the rich uncle did not want interest paid or special favors, still, what did the person learn from the situation? But maybe that person, or country, just needed that one bailout. The implications are far greater than the simple example provided.

The conditionalities of borrowing money from the IMF may have a grave impact on the future development of a nation. Although conditions may seem to become better, obviously, from a sudden massive influx of capital, the conditions of repayment and distribution of resources may prove to be more in favor of those whom invested in the country, rather than the country needing help from the, seemingly, international community.

Schumann Resonance

Schumann Resonances are somewhat of an electromagnetic phenomenon which occurs in the extremely low frequency (ELF) range of the electromagnetic spectrum on Earth. The discovery of this frequency range is largely credited to Winifred Otto Schumann, whom predicted the range mathematically in the early 1950’s, although Nikola Tesla documented his findings of this range as the basis for his theory on wireless energy transmission in 1905. The resonance occurs at frequencies between 3 and 69 Hertz (Hz), but statistically remains at a frequency of 7.83 Hz. Hertz is simply a measurement of frequency which is defined by cycles per second.

Lightning discharges within the ionosphere (the uppermost part of the atmosphere; containing high levels of free electrons) are the primary source of excitation of the Schumann resonance. It has been coined by researchers and scientists as the “natural healing frequency,” “tuning fork for life,” and “Earth’s heartbeat.” It was first used for healing by Dr. Wolfgang Ludwig under various conditions. One noteworthy instance was the implementation of the frequency within spacecrafts for NASA, as astronauts often reported various illnesses while out in space (outside the Earth’s ionosphere) where no similar frequency range occurs. The Schumann Resonance devices had a stabilizing effect on the astronauts in space and have since been a standard component to spacecraft.

A strong correlation between Schumann resonances and alpha rhythm brainwaves was discovered by Dr. Ankermueller after Schumman published his work in the journal ‘Technische Physik’. Dr. Herbert König, who later became a successor to Schumann’s work, compared human EEG recordings (electroencephalogram: a graphical record of electrical activity of the brain; produced by an electroencephalograph) with electromagnetic fields of the natural environment and found a profoundly close similarity to alpha rhythms of the brain.

The information provided may help to conclude that one’s most stable condition, both physically and mentally, is when they are in tune to the same frequency as the earth. Many consider this a scientifically explainable means of a sense of “oneness” or even communication with the earth. Many “manmade” frequencies exist which interfere with the Schumann resonance, which in turn creates electro-pollution that arguably causes more stress, fatigue, and a sense of being “out of balance.” Cell phones, radio frequencies, and various other means of electro-pollution, such as HAARP, operate in the ELF range, which fills the environment with an unnatural frequency range. Maintaining an optimal biological frequency resonance is key to good health, and may be attained through various natural and artificial means such as simply living in areas away from large city centers or placing devices that produce resonant frequencies, within the earth’s natural ionosphere cavity range, in the household. The real threat of tampering with our natural frequency range is significant to some and relatively inconsequential to others. It is recommended that each individual at-least consider its very real implications, which have been covered in this article only by a hair’s breadth.
