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.

The 10 Leading Theories For Dead Birds And Fish

Lightning, hail, mid-air collision, power lines, and New Year fireworks for the birds . . . but disease for the fish.  This is even rolling eyes in the mainstream media.  Birds are incredibly sensitive to their environment (think Canary in the coal mine), and the thought that they were caught by surprise, or that they “fowled” up their flight pattern is patently ridiculous.

Meteor showers: We are in a period of intense seasonal meteor showers, and several perennial YouTubers reported hearing sonic booms in the area that could have indicated a local shock wave.  This would be one non-conspiratorial, natural cause that actually makes sense, but it is hard to connect to both birds and fish, unless it produced a disabling frequency.  There were indeed other sound anomalies according to the report highlighted above.

New Madrid Fault Line:  An excellent article by The American Dream collated data about the recent earthquake activity along this fault line that runs along the mid-eastern section of the U.S.  Combined with gas fracking, the immense geological activity in the region, and the BP oil drilling disaster, which off-gassed the dispersant, Corexit, into the atmosphere, and we should be wondering about any mass deaths in the region.  Nevertheless, this has turned into a global event, so the above could be a side effect of something larger, or a direct contributing factor.

Government testing: The long history of government testing has been exposed by many researchers.  The strange component to this die-off is that only certain species have been affected, but within the entire region.  And some reports have indicated that the organs of these birds were liquefied, which could indicate a possible virus. Could this implicate species-specific bio-weapons? It is on record that discussions have taken place about race-specific bio-weapons; perhaps this is a test of delivery capability?

GMO mutation: Mike Adams of Natural News sets forth an interesting theory: this latest event is local, but the die-offs are happening across species as bee populations and bats are also declining.  Adams points out that Monsanto has a corporate office in Arkansas.  Just wondering.

Geoengineering: Could spraying in the area have caused this type of fallout?  Perhaps something new added to the mixture? Chemtrails have quickly moved from conspiracy theory to documented fact.  So much so, that the powers-that-be have had to admit to the program, but a beneficial one in their view.  Between cloud seeding and possible connections to HAARP, chemtrail fallout must be considered, especially as it is being conducted nearly worldwide.  Rosalind Peterson has been at the forefront of connecting geoengineering to GMOs as a combined source for oxygen-depleting algae blooms that very well could affect a wide spectrum of natural systems. Furthermore, some believe that the delivery system for chemtrails can also disperse pathogens.  If there is a flu or disease outbreak in the coming days or weeks among the human population in areas where the birds have fallen, the chemtrail connection could be made.  If this happens, the contagion could be blamed on a new, deadly bird flu.  A last possibility connected to chemtrails would be nanoparticles.

HAARP: Birds and fish can be susceptible to subtle frequency alteration.  An interesting YouTube post from a long-time fisherman mentioned the “pearl” plate behind the eye of the affected type of drum fish in this event.  He made a plea for anyone in the area to look for signs of damage to this plate.  Both birds and fish navigate in highly coordinated ways that indicate that they move and communicate via frequencies.  Could the HAARP array in Alaska have short-circuited their navigation systems?  Or, perhaps this is the beginning of a cascading effect from decades of electromagnetic pollution emanating from EMF and ELF waves shot around the planet via a wide range of modern communications.

Scalar Weapons:  These directed energy beam weapons can be deployed via satellite and create a wide range of “natural disasters” that can be tuned to certain frequencies.  Their radius is reported to be several miles.  Even crazier is that we have been told that the dead birds encountered massive trauma.  One of the reported abilities of scalar weapons is to create a Tesla shield of plasma, like a bubble, that could explode anything that enters its airspace.  Some have speculated that this technology is in full operation.  But what if it truly is still at the testing phase?  Remember, this is happening in South America, too.

Project Blue Beam: Were they testing a sound generator for the global theater of alien invasion?  This one is “out there” for sure, but NASA itself has announced its preparation for such a scenario. Project Blue Beam, like its counterpart HAARP, uses the natural energy present in the ionosphere as both a visual and acoustical device.  Again, perhaps they are not at the ready stage yet, but, like Tesla, have made an unintentional misstep.

Geomagnetic and other Earth changes:  As anyone can see from the above range of possibilities, we are facing an array of human tampering.  However, the backdrop to this are the anomalies beginning to take form with the apparent wandering of our magnetic pole, as even National Geographic reported that the north magnetic pole is racing toward Russia.  Add to this a dwindling magnetosphere and falling oxygen levels, and the deaths among more delicate species might portend a larger problem.  Finally, an increase in sun activity and magnetic storms might be weakening our overall natural habitat.

The widespread die-off of nature should lead us to look more intently at the world around us, and to question our relationship to it, and our effect upon it. Perhaps this is what we should have been doing all along.

James Vicary and Subliminal Advertising

James M. Vicary was one of the forefathers of subliminal advertising. He led a study in 1957, which some will argue never happened, that hypothesized; under certain circumstances, individuals “will act abnormally” without being aware of the influence of subliminal cues. This theory was somewhat proven when audiences at film theatres were shown clips of advertisements for Coca Cola and popcorn every five seconds within the film, but only for three-thousandths of a second at a time. This supposedly increased sales, but was banned the following year, even though the use of subliminal advertising was hardly proven effective. Vicary said himself, that he doctored test results in order to increase business for his market-research firm, and later stated that all he accomplished “was to put a new word into common usage.”

Noone has proven yet that subliminal advertising will force someone to do something they otherwise would not, but it may trigger their impulse to do something to their liking or suitable to their tastes. Today’s advertising strategies consist of product placement in television shows and movies.  Even in 1982, the blockbuster movie “E.T.” featured Hershey’s Reeses Pieces as the favorite snack of the alien, in which tripled sales was arguably a direct result of the product placement in the movie.

Talk show hosts are being paid to mention products, such as pharmaceuticals, nonchalantly.  Alyson Worth, a writer for the Fort Worth Star-telegram, writes” We’re being approached online by marketers hired to pose as regular Internet users, who casually recommend products and services in chat rooms. And “stealth marketers” are showing, recommending and teasing us with products on the streets and in bars and music stores – and we don’t even know they’re doing it.” So some strategies of marketing have become a little less subliminal and more guerrilla style.

MARCUS GARVEY

Marcus Mosiah Garvey Jr. is most notably known for his leadership role in the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA-ACL), which he founded in 1914, and established the first branch in Jamaica after spending some years in the Caribbean, Central and South America, and London mainly working in the newspaper and printing industry.

Garvey was born in St. Ann’s Bay, Jamaica in 1887. He portrayed a keen likeness to reading as a young boy, as his father and uncle both kept collections of books which he took to use, and later earned the title of master printer as a young man. One of his first endeavors as a printer was the publication of The Watchman.
Garvey’s ultimate objective, through the UNIA-ACL, was to create an independent black nation. His efforts would have, arguably, been successful if certain forces (both internal and external) did not inhibit the progression of the UNIA-ACL.

In 1916, he arrived in the U.S. to lecture and raise capital to establish a school in Jamaica modeled after Booker T. Washington’s Tuskegee Institute. Later that year, he moved to New York, and in May of 1917, Garvey and thirteen others established the first UNIA branch in the U.S. Through hard work and leadership, the UNIA grew with great success. By 1919 Garvey had approximately 750,000 followers.

Garvey began to campaign across the U.S. and eventually established 500 UNIA divisions in 22 countries. He had developed an aggressive speaking style over the years, and had earned the admiration of people of all races. His style of action was much different from those of his time and before him. Garvey was noted as calling the black leaders of the time “weak”.

In a time where it was difficult for a man of any color to provide for his family, especially African Americans, the UNIA provided a sense of belonging and fraternity to men, women, and juniors. Uniforms and ranks were given, as well as social programs. Garvey designed the red, black, and green flag for the organization. The Negro World Newspaper was another medium of building community by the UNIA, as it provided essays, poetry, articles, and black history.

Garvey had many critics as well within and outside of the black community. Some leaders did not agree with his seemingly loud representation of the unification of black people. The federal Government at the time considered him a threat to national security. The Justice Department formed the General Intelligence Division, based solely on the activities of the UNIA. It was led by J. Edgar Hoover. The “Africa for the Africans” campaign was arguably the most notable movement that alarmed the U.S. and Great Britain as taking Garvey and the UNIA more serious.

Garvey set up various businesses to employ black people and strengthen the organization. Some businesses were successful and others failed. The UNIA was successful for a short period in creating investment opportunities for members and followers through various funds and stock purchases, such as the Negro Factories Corporation and the Black Star Line. The Black Star Line was, roughly, a business venture to purchase and operate sea vessels for the transportation of goods and eventually African Americans to Africa. It became a proud symbol of the UNIA and its followers as a sign of significant progress.

The Black Star Line was quite possibly a milestone for the height of the UNIA and as the beginning of its descent. The government began to view Garvey as a Nationalist, as he openly portrayed the UNIA as a “government in exile”; giving himself the title of Provisional President of Africa. The movement had all the markings of a government in its infancy. Garvey wrote a Black Declaration of Rights along with other provisional documents.

Eventually, agents made their way into Garvey’s circle of trust. These spies were assigned to get information that may incriminate Garvey. While in the meantime, they sabotaged his efforts to advance the success of the Black Star Line by such actions as damaging equipment and intentionally overestimating a ship at a significantly higher cost for purchase. Some people began to worry about their investments in Black Star Line stock.

One day at Garvey’s Harlem office, a man named George Tyler drew his .38 caliber pistol on Garvey and fired 4 shots during a struggle. Garvey was hit twice; once in the leg and once in the scalp. He survived the shooting and appeared at a gathering the next day. Tyler committed suicide by jumping off the third story tier of the jail while on his way to his arraignment. Tyler supposedly told Garvey that Kilroe sent him before his attack. Edwin P. Kilroe was an Assistant District Attorney whom had many run-ins with Garvey. Others suggest that Tyler was a disgruntled investor.

Garvey gained more critics of his work after he allowed Klu Klux Klan leaders to debate with him at his assemblies. In addition to the misinformation and propaganda against the UNIA, one detrimental mistake contributed considerably to the downfall of the UNIA. A picture of a ship called the Phyllis Wheatley was advertised on a stock brochure for the Black Star Line, although a ship of this name had not yet been purchased by the company. Garvey, along with three other UNIA officers were arrested for mail fraud, which resulted in the overall defrauding of one person for $25, whether or not it was intended.

After 2 years of appeals, and representing himself in court during his four week trial, Garvey was sentenced to 5 years in prison. In 1927 he was pardoned and ordered to be deported to Jamaica, after millions of people signed petitions for his release. Garvey had weak lungs and heart disease. Various officers of government felt that his martyrdom would only make the UNIA stronger. Being an election year, President Coolidge and the Republican Party felt that if Garvey was not released, that black people, being mostly Republican at the time, would vote for another candidate or the other party.

Garvey was finally shipped back to Jamaica, with a large crowd bidding him farewell at the harbor and as he also rightfully received a hero’s welcome when he arrived in Jamaica. His achievements continued in Jamaica as he presented the Petition of the Negro Race in Geneva, 1928, founder of the People’s Political Party in 1929 and the Edelweiss Amusement Company in 1931. His accomplishments go beyond this article, as Garvey remained a busy and determined delegate in the area of equal rights for black people all over the world.

Garvey suffered from a stroke in January of 1940, where he remained hospitalized until his death in mid 1940 due to a stroke that occurred while reading his premature obituary in the newspaper. The obituary was printed by the Chicago Messenger, which stated Garvey died “broke, alone, and unpopular.” Other reports of his death state he was poisoned on a ship.

Countless tributes and memorials are in Garvey’s name from Jamaica to the U.K. Ironically Garvey never set foot in Africa, despite all of his campaigns, but is nonetheless a prominent historical figure their and around the world. Marcus Garvey told black people that “their history did not begin with slavery,” and gave them strength in a time of utmost degradation and apathy towards an entire race. Despite his subjective faults, Garvey led for change, and is arguably the impetus for the change that has occurred with respect to Civil Rights for African Americans and black people across the world. This goes to show us all, no matter what the race, that unity is the key to overcoming any type of oppression. The Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League still exists and thrives today.
