White House presses Senate to allow Mexican trucks Stalls bill passed by House that would block program permitting rigs in U.S.

Posted: June 14, 2007

In an effort to ensure Mexican trucks will begin rolling across the U.S. on schedule, the Bush administration is pressing the Senate to not take any action on a bill passed overwhelmingly by the House that essentially would block the project.

Sources within the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation have confirmed in background conversations that the panel has put on hold taking any action on the Safe American Roads Act of 2007, the bill the House passed May 15 by a vote of 411-3.

At the encouragement of the White House, the senators on the transportation committee are taking the position that the requirements of the Safe American Roads Act were wrapped into the provisions of H.R. 2206, the Iraq supplemental funding bill, signed May 25 by President Bush.

At the moment, the staff of the Senate transportation panel has no plans to discuss a Senate bill comparable to Safe American Roads Act before the July recess.

An unhappy Todd Spencer, executive director of the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association, believes the Bush administration "has preordained that the Mexican truck demonstration project will begin regardless who objects."

"Simply put, the Bush administration has turned a tin ear to both the public and the Congress and there are no objections which can put a stop to the DOT plans," he told WND.

In response to the Iraq supplemental funding bill, the Department of Transportation issued a press release June 8 indicating additional regulations applicable to the Mexican trucks had been filed in the Federal Register, with a public comment period that extends to June 28.

As WND reported, Spencer has argued the supplemental funding bill demanded verification of safety issues that the DOT did not provide in its Federal Register filing.

The new regulations supplement the Mexican truck regulations DOT published in the Federal Register on May 1.

A statement by John H. Hill, administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration suggests the agency believes the new regulations complete the legislative requirements set out in the Iraq supplemental funding bill.

Referring to the supplemental Federal Register notice published June 8, Hill said, "This shows the great lengths to which we've gone to ensure this program meets high safety standards while providing American business opportunities for further economic growth. We continue to meet or exceed every condition required by law."

The only remaining step required by the Iraq supplemental funding bill is for the DOT inspector general to confirm that the regulations published by FMCSA meet the safety and security requirements specified by Congress in the Iraq supplemental funding bill.

Allowing an extra month for this requirement to be filled, industry insiders now anticipate the Mexican truck demonstration project will begin Aug. 15, one month later than the July 15 start anticipated as recently as a week ago.

"No matter how many forms FMCSA creates," Spencer said, "nobody can assure us that the Mexican commercial driver licenses or drug testing procedures are up to U.S. standards."

"DOT is jamming these regulations for us, yet we seriously doubt that Mexico will have controls in place that will assure the U.S. public that the Mexican trucks allowed in the United States will be safe or secure," he said.

Spencer suggested that in the final months of the Bush administration, every effort will be made to keep promises made to Mexico.

"Whatever it takes, the administration is going to make sure that Mexican long-haul rigs have free access on U.S. roads before George W. Bush leaves office," he said.

IRS vs. Former IRS Agent Sherry Peel Jackson

by SHERRY PEEL JACKSON

INTRO BY DEVVY KIDD: The IRS has filed formal criminal charges against Sherry Jackson.

For those who might not know about this remarkable woman, Sherry is not only highly intelligent, she's a fearless fighter for truth and liberty.

Sherry, like Joseph Banister, former Criminal Investigator (CID) for the IRS, spent a couple of years investigating the Internal Revenue Code and came to the conclusion that the IRS was deliberately misapplying the code against the majority of unsuspecting Americans.

And, just like Joseph, Sherry quit her job with the IRS at great financial sacrifice. Joseph Banister was tried and thank God, acquitted in June 2005; his lead counsel was Jeff Dickstein and Bob Bernhoft.)

Who is Sherry Jackson? These are her words from a speech she made in 2002; no one says it better:

”My name is Sherry Peel Jackson. I became a Certified Public Accountant in 1987, I was an Internal Revenue Agent in the Atlanta District for 7 years, and I became a Certified Fraud Examiner in 2001.

I am here to summarize the tales of ignorance and deception that you have heard over the last two days and I am here to inform you of the state of the nation so that you may choose your next course of action.

"You have heard the truth of how the Internal Revenue Service, Department of Justice, Federal Reserve and politicians have perpetuated this smoke and mirrors - dog and pony show on you the American people for over 88 years. You have heard of American families devastated by the invasion of privacy and unbridled fear placed upon them through threats of liens, levy's and even jail time.

"In my tenure as an IRS agent, I personally saw marriages broken, families torn apart, homes confiscated and businesses destroyed - all while my colleagues and I were out making unjust demands on the American people - without the proper authority. Now, you be the judge.

”You have seen that Commissioner Charles Rosetti, Dan Bryant, the majority of our congressional delegation and other civil servants have refused to do their jobs. It would have been as simple as answering the questions of these well-educated researchers in a public forum, such as this one. But they have reneged, so you be the judge.

"You have learned that the Constitution of the United States of America has been trampled on and ignored through allowing the privately owned Federal Reserve to create paper currency and charge you 47 million dollars in interest per hour - money coming from the mouths of your children and the college education funds of your grandchildren, all the while the children and grandchildren of the owners of the Federal Reserve will never have to work a day in their lives, and that is wrong, on so many different levels.

”And let me tell you, that as a black woman I am keenly aware of the history of slavery. But do you understand that we are all slaves to this system? Do you understand that the media and Hollywood play a part keeping the American people so fixated on Alley McBeal, WWF Smackdown, Moeisha and the Practice that we don't take time to read the Creature from Jekyll Island, study the Internal Revenue Code and learn the Constitution? Now, let me spend just a minute to address my culture. Do you realize that the so called black leaders make millions of dollars every year playing the "us against them" role - keeping blacks focused on the race card and away from the real issue - the theft of our future through taxation.

”These publicity mongers are well aware of the oppression brought on by income taxation, they love to march on Washington about racial profiling and civil rights, not to say that these are not real problems, but these leaders have been too afraid to approach the powers that be and have a million man, woman, boy, girl march about economic freedom from income taxation and restoration of constitutional rights. (And they have the nerve to call Clarence Thomas an Uncle Tom.) Also, there's been a lot of talk about reparations lately, but know this: If all Americans were able to keep the money withheld from their paychecks every year, that money would enable them to home school, start their own business and boost the economy, save for college and retirement, even buy that 40 acres and a mule. So, you be the judge. You need to understand that with an Internal Revenue Code, Code of Federal Regulations, and other "official documents" spouting off several different definitions of United States, Internal Revenue Service and other important terms, this deception that keeps people ignorant is not a coincidence. The writers of the Code used semantics and legalese to make us think that we are required to pay the income tax and file an income tax return. Former IRS commissioner Shirley Peterson even stated that, and I quote, "Eight decades of amendments to (the) code have produced a virtually impenetrable maze. The rules are unintelligible to most citizens. The rules are equally mysterious to many government employees who are charged with administering and enforcing the law." End quote.

”This fraud was strung together by people like the former president that said "it depends on what your definition of is is" and "it depends on what your definition of sex is". This incident showed us that definitions are very important to politicians and lawyers, and no word is meaningless. For example, it does depend on what the definition of "source" is.

”The opposition, in an attempt to keep the sheeple in the flock, will scoff at us and encourage unaware Americans to ridicule those of us who have been informed, saying, "these people just don't want to pay their fair share." We have already learned from a speech by former Federal Reserve Chairman Beardsley Rhuml that this country doesn't need income taxes for revenue. This money collected from our sweat and tears is used to perpetuate redistribution of wealth, among other things. But the powers that be keep beating the people over the head with this "fair share' garbage. Well, what is fair share? Haven't the families of the victims in New York City and the pentagon paid their fair share? Haven't the men and women that lost sons and daughters, husbands in wives in Vietnam, Korea and the other battles paid their fair share? So you see, this tactic to pit those that are uninformed of the income tax fraud against those who have seen the light is baseless and must be eliminated!

”The opposition also uses our religious faith to twist the meaning of authority and to create unjust statutes. People, I know godly authority and our current system does not reflect godly authority. Many of our past and present religious leaders have been jailed for questioning authority. They have been beaten, starved and even killed for their faith and their defiance of injustice. People of America - is what you're living for worth dying for? Are you willing to take a stand? It's your choice. The creators of this Creature called the income tax, engineered their system to manipulate you into staying in your comfort zones. With a little bit of patriotism and a little bit of fear tactic mixed into a pot of inflation and deflation, they have been able to keep the people confused, intimidated and obedient for over 88 years.

”But now the truth about the fraudulent origin and operations of the Federal Reserve System and the Internal Revenue Service have been revealed to the American people. You can no longer claim ignorance of the truth. You must acknowledge it or reject it. The choice is yours. And the consequences of your decision will rest on the shoulders of your children and future generations of Americans.

”You can remain an informed slave or you can get off of the plantation. You can remain engrossed in fear, or you can take a stand like Patrick Henry who shouted "give me liberty or give me death." You can stay hypnotized by "As The World Turns" and "The Guiding Light", or you can turn off the boob tube and read the Constitution, then go ask your elected representatives why they refuse to follow it. Remember that those elected representatives have sworn to uphold and defend our constitution.

”Remember that each of our elected representatives has pledged to serve our country first-not a political party, or certain privileged and special interests groups-but you, the American People. They are our public servants. In closing, we have shown you the truth. Now, for the sake of our Country and our children, we ask you to choose justice over injustice, unity over division, courage over fear, truth over ignorance, and liberty over economic slavery. We ask you to stand with us and let the voice of freedom be heard from every corner of our great country. It is time to end this long-standing injustice and tyranny over the American People.

"Thank you. Sherry Peel Jackson, CPA"

(AFTERWORD BY DEVVY KIDD: Sherry has retained Larry Becraft as her attorney. Larry was lead counsel in the Vernie Kuglin acquittal. I spoke with Larry Becraft on June 13, 2007 and he has confirmed the federal government has filed criminal charges against her per Section 7203 of the IRC; willful failure to file, four counts. Larry is a veteran criminal defense attorney with over 30 years experience, but he and Sherry's local counsel have to be paid.

Sherry has spent years educating Americans regarding the fraudulent application of the IRC and inspiring them from coast to coast. Her personal sacrifices have been great and now her freedom is at stake. This is our fight, too.

Funds can be sent for her defense fund to: Sherry Jackson, 1560 Fieldgreen Overlook, Stone Mountain, Georgia 30088)

From Hiroshima to Iraq, 61 years of uranium wars

A suicidal, genocidal, omnicidal course

by Leuren Moret

Global Research, June 12, 2007

Link

The conduct of secret nuclear wars since 1991, through the use of depleted uranium weaponry by the United States and Great Britain with their allies, has taken place in the Middle East, the former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan2 and Lebanon.3 It has been carried out for the express purpose of destroying the public health and mutilating the genetic future of vast populations in oil rich and/or pipeline regions.

Carpet and grid bombing with depleted uranium weaponry in Iraq, Yugoslavia and Afghanistan has guaranteed permanent radioactive terrain contamination. The recent discovery that U.S. depleted uranium bombs dropped by Israel on Lebanon in 2006 contained enriched uranium4,5 suggests covert testing of fourth generation nuclear weapons.

The United States and its allies are fully aware that this weaponry violates the Geneva and Hague Conventions and the 1925 Geneva Poison Gas Protocol.6 It meets the definition of WMD in the U.S. Code7 in two out of three categories. And its use violates U.S. military law.8 since the U.S. is a signatory to The Hague and Geneva Conventions.

The blueprint for depleted uranium radioactive poison gas weaponry – dirty bombs, dirty missiles and dirty bullets – was contained in a declassified memorandum9 dated Oct. 30, 1943. It was addressed to Gen. Leslie Groves, who was head of the Manhattan Project, the U.S. effort to build atomic bombs in World War II.

The recommendation for development of depleted uranium as kinetic energy penetrators was never mentioned in the Groves memo. It was specifically for depopulation.

The Groves memo makes it clear that in 1943, U.S. scientists recommended using radioactive poison gas weapons in order to contaminate the air, water, soil, food, environment and the blood of exposed populations. The long-term contamination is permanent, since uranium-238 has a half-life of 4.5 billion years, making contaminated areas uninhabitable for eternity.

For populations that must continue to live in contaminated areas, the long-term effects are lingering illnesses and mutilation of their DNA. Widespread depleted uranium contamination of DNA in populations results in the potential mutilation of future generations. Mutations induced in the DNA of a single egg or sperm which form a fertilized egg are expressed and repeated in every cell of the developing organism, and defects are passed on to all future generations11.

Not only are U.S. and allied soldiers exposed and civilian populations genocidally targeted, but the depleted uranium pollution is now global.12,13 In reality, we are all Gulf War veterans.

Depleted uranium poison gas weaponry, used on a regional scale, meets U.S. National Security Council goals as stated in the “Global 2000 Report: Vision of a Gloomy World” (1980).14 This report recommended that depopulation in third world countries was imperative to the U.S. government purpose of securing mineral and other strategic resources.

Global atmospheric pollution from depleted uranium particulates will result in massive depopulation on a global scale. By increasing death rates and decreasing birth rates globally, more than 2 billion people will be eliminated.

Depleted uranium is the ideal weapon to bring about the New World Order, which is global depopulation. In just a few years it has turned Planet Earth into a Death Star.

Depopulation and the accumulation of capital

The following is the depopulation policy thesis set out in this paper: Intentional depopulation and massive genocide are the core policies by which ruling elites drive international relations, economic aid development, strategic weapons development and the design of engineered wars.

The operational goal of this intentional depopulation policy is the reduction of the human population. With presidential approval, former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger presented 2 billion people as the desired level of reduction, but in fact the depopulation policy may seek a 2-4 billion reduction, or up to two thirds of the world’s population.

This depopulation policy is intended by the world’s ruling elite to result in control of mineral and strategic resources and water and total control of the world’s wealth. One of the most common political epithets for the depopulation policy is “The New World Order.”

“All wars are economic in origin,” said Bernard Baruch, advisor to presidents during World Wars I and II.

Even the 13th century Crusades in the Middle East were not religious wars, but an attempt by special interests in Europe to restabilize and take control over the wealth and revenues of the Silk Road.15 Theology was created to eliminate the “enemies of God” in order to promote and justify the wars of the Crusades, which were fought for a hidden economic benefit. History in the Middle East repeats itself in the 21st century.

The New World Order depopulation policy was consciously accelerated during World War II with the Manhattan Project. During World War II, the Manhattan Project developed three illegal and infamous weapons of mass destruction: the atomic bombs dropped on the civilian populations of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, a defoliant developed as Agent Orange for the Vietnam War, and depleted uranium radioactive poison gas weaponry used in Iraq, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Lebanon since 1991. These weapons of mass destruction were developed specifically for the purpose of depopulation.

After World War II, the international ruling elite – the Illuminati, London Money Power, Bilderberg Group, the Club of Rome, and Skull and Bones – and, in the U.S., the Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, National Security Council and U.S. State Department have all made depopulation of 2 billion people their top priority. The purpose of this planned human mass genocide is to maximize profits and the accumulation of wealth.

Depopulation in Africa

Depopulation policy has targeted Africa more heavily than any other continent and has resulted in the ruling elites looting its vast natural resources. It is a “treasure box” of minerals and precious, rare and strategic metals, with more diversity of resource wealth than any other continent.

In the book, “Tiny Rowland: The Ugly Face of Neocolonialism in Africa,”16 are details of the role that Tiny Rowland played, as agent of the British Queen, in turning the 1960s dreams of independence of the African nations into the nightmare of a dying continent, plagued by starvation and disease. Rowland was the CEO and chief architect of Lonrho, the British multinational company that was the headquarters for looting African countries through economic dirty tricks.

Through Lonrho, Rowland became the biggest Western businessman in Africa. The book also details how Rowland set up Rio Tinto Mines for the considerable private and personal uranium holdings, worth over $6 billion, of the Queen of England in former British colonies. Not bad for a German former Nazi youth corps member, who was a convicted criminal in Germany before he changed his name, moved to England and became the Queen’s buccaneer.

The depopulation policy thesis extends to international collaboration and alliance between private organizations, universities, corporations, governments, the military and quasi-governmental bodies. The concept for AIDS, a new class of bio-weapon, came out of the Club of Rome and was made in laboratories of the Department of Defense.

AIDS was one of the early “exotic” bio-weapons developed. It was developed and administered by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD). Congress funded the AIDS development project, used to depopulate Africa in combination with famine, two ways known to rapidly increase death rates.

The role of universities

Universities have played a major role in the development of weapons of mass destruction and implementation of depopulation policies. Grants from the DOD increasingly are playing an important role in science research funding in the U.S.

In addition to running the nuclear weapons labs, UC Berkeley began DOD-funded research developing “flying spying robotic insects,” “smart dust” and other projects prompted by the 2001 events of 911. This is benign compared to Johns Hopkins University, the largest single university recipient of DOD funding in the U.S., which receives nearly $350 million a year.17 Johns Hopkins University and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, where the Manhattan Project started during World War II, have both been involved with research on another aspect of U.S. depopulation policy, the “genome project.”

The genome project is a nearly completed scientific program to map the human genome. Human genome mapping and the development of new bio-weapons go hand in hand. Secretly, and in violation of international law, exotic bio-weapons have been under intense development in more than 100 government and military laboratories in the U.S. during the past few decades.

Development of bio-weapons and expansion of the laboratories intensified under Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld to unprecedented levels after 2000.18 They are cost effective, something penny pincher Donald Rumsfeld was known for, but they are nothing new. In an interview in 1948 between Heinrich Mueller, the former head of the Gestapo, and his CIA interrogator, Mueller reflected the same penny pinching cheapskate concern characteristic of fascists:

“If Stalin invades Europe ... a little disease here and there would wipe out Stalin’s hoards and leave everything intact. Besides, a small bottle of germs is so much cheaper than an atom bomb, isn’t it? Why, you could hold more soldiers in your hand than Stalin could possibly command and you don’t have to feed them, clothe them or supply them with munitions. On the other hand, the threat of war ... does wonders ... for the economy.”19

Apparently, designing new kinds of bio-weapons for the DOD can be dangerous to a scientist’s health. More than 50 world-class scientists have been murdered since 2002 in the U.S. and the U.K. Almost all of them were microbiologists working on ethnic specific bio-weapons.20,21

When population control programs have failed in Third World countries, U.S. foreign policy has proven to be covert and vicious. After birth control and sterilization programs failed in India, it became the target of a deadly and demonic form of U.S. depopulation policy – involving both bio-weapons and radiation.

AIDS has now spread across the southern half of India. Depleted uranium blowing off the Himalayas, over Pakistan and the oil rich sands of Rajasthan, Utar Pradesh and Gujarat is contaminating the northern half of India and the Himalayan headwaters of nine major rivers of Asia.

Radioactive wars

Heavy grid and carpet bombing with depleted uranium by the U.S. military on the eastern side of Afghanistan beginning in 2001 guaranteed heavy contamination in areas where deep snows in the mountainous regions provide water for Pakistan and parts of western India. By contaminating vital water supplies in vast regions with radioactive contaminants, a secret and invisible low level nuclear war is being carried out against Asia.

Radioactive wars with low level radiation will mutilate the DNA of all exposed living things. This is not just a war against people; it is a war against the environment. Few living things will escape the slow radioactive poisoning which mutilates DNA and is passed on to all future generations.

Biological weapons are under development and testing for population control. Forced sterilization as a means of population control has been covertly introduced in Third World countries, where women receiving vaccines were never able to have a live birth after the vaccination. This was reported in a BBC documentary on women in the Philippines and Mexico who had been used as guinea pigs for a new experimental pregnancy vaccine.22

The HCG vaccine makes a woman’s body reject new pregnancies. Black women have involuntarily been sterilized in South African hospitals with the HCG vaccine. They were told, after the birth of a baby, that “we could not leave the hospital until they had ‘this shot.’”23

Black newborns, born to parents without AIDS, were given vaccinations before they left the hospital in South Africa, and the babies were soon found to have AIDS.24 In some American Indian tribes, up to 80 percent of the women are sterile. Biopharmaceutical crops are a disaster waiting to happen. Dr. Ignacio Chapela reported that spermicidal corn was being tested by drug companies in Mexico:

“Some in Mexico are worried that biopharmaceutical corn could pollute their corn fields. Silvia Ribeiro, who heads the ETC Group’s office in Mexico City, has noted with concern that the California-based Epicyte Corp. boasts a spermicidal corn for use as a contraceptive. ‘The potential of spermicidal corn as a biological weapon is very high,’ she warned, and reminisced about the use of forced sterilizations against indigenous peoples.”25

We can no longer trust what used to be sustainers of life. The depopulation weapons of the ruling elite are in the air, in food, in vaccines, in medical procedures, in drinking water, in soils and even in our bodies to be passed on to future generations. The irony in this demonic plan is that we were never informed. The decision was made for us – to face genocide and the death of birth.

Nuclear power

The greatest number of nuclear reactors are concentrated in Europe, North America and Japan – where the most democratic governments in the world are located. Understandably, democratic governments would be the first targets of the ruling elite in forming a one world corporate government.

For this reason, nuclear power has been implemented by powerful hidden forces, despite widespread and long term opposition by citizens in those “democratic” countries. The fact that nuclear power is the most costly energy technology – with no solution to disposal of radioactive waste – was ignored.

Nuclear power plants deliver the same lethal fission products in their emissions over a period of months and years that a nuclear bomb delivers in a nanosecond. Chronic exposure to low level radiation in emissions released from nuclear power plants may be deadlier in many ways than one acute exposure to a nuclear bomb detonation.

Fresh fission products with very short half-lives from atmospheric tests decay in the atmosphere. But these same dangerous fission products arrive in communities within hours in emissions from nuclear power plants. Chronic exposure of populations over the past decades has caused untold suffering, public health damage and the sacrifice of generations of children – the future of our countries.

Radiation

Radiation has a very powerful mutagenic effect, destroying DNA and the genetic future of individuals and populations chronically exposed. It also destroys brain functioning and causes many radiation related illnesses.

High rates of infertility, particularly linked to radiation, are increasing globally since 1945. Twenty years ago, 80 percent of men’s sperm globally was normal and 20 percent had DNA damage. Today, it is reversed, with only 20 percent of global sperm normal and 80 percent with damaged DNA. The goal of the New World Order is to reduce birth rates and increase death rates globally.

Dr. Ernest Sternglass and the Radiation and Public Health Project26 have independently collected over 6,000 baby teeth from children living around nuclear power plants. They found that strontium-90 radiation levels are as high or higher now in baby teeth than during atmospheric testing.

Dr. Sternglass, who was asked by President Kennedy to testify in Congress about the link between radiation from fallout and cancer in children, helped convince the Senate to sign the Partial Test Ban Treaty in 1963. He has recently stated, “What we’ve done is to replace the fallout from bomb testing with the so-called small permitted releases from nuclear plants.”27

Domestically, the U.S. government program to promote nuclear power as energy “too cheap to meter” under President Eisenhower had a hidden military agenda as the only known source of plutonium for nuclear weapons. In keeping with the ruling elites’ policy of depopulation, intentional genocide and maximization of profit, the nuclear power program has been used as a secret and covert strategic weapon and a very deadly form of engineered nuclear war.

Russia and Japan now have the distinction of being two of a few countries in the world where the death rates are higher than the birth rates. Does radiation in these countries have something to do with the distinction of having achieved the ultimate goal of the New World Order?

The Chernobyl accident, releasing huge amounts of fresh fission products into the atmosphere on April 26, 1986, contributed to the downfall of the Soviet Union. The radiation traveled around the world, causing breast cancer clusters wherever it rained the fission products out of the atmosphere. Russia is a sick old man from the impact of that accident.

A scientific illustrator traced the path of Chernobyl radiation across Europe by mapping defective insects under the path of the Chernobyl cloud. Today, Europe is in a pandemic of diabetes as a result of radiation from French atmospheric testing in the Sahara, Chernobyl and depleted uranium used on battlefields since 1991.

Japan already has very high infertility, with a declining birth rate and an increasing death rate, as well as an epidemic of radiation related illnesses from the 56 nuclear reactors in Japan. But the opening of Rokkasho, the largest nuclear reprocessing plant in the world, on April 1, 2006, will destroy Japan. It seems prophetic that it began operating on April Fool’s Day, or maybe it’s just more CIA twisted humor.

The agreement to build the world’s first thermonuclear reactor, now located at Rokkasho in northern Japan, ironically was made in a 1985 summit between Reagan and Gorbachov. It will release the equivalent emissions in one year of 365 new nuclear reactors. There are only about 411 commercial nuclear reactors in the world. Japan will soon have the equivalent radioactive emissions of 419 nuclear reactors, in a country the size of California. Japan has a magnitude 8 or greater earthquake every 5 years!

Governments around the world are covering up the radiation related illnesses around nuclear power plants, the Chernobyl accident and low level radiation. There are people in high places in Japan who know what the impact of Rokkasho will be on the health of the environment and public health. The information is already available in the annual vital statistics published each year by the Japanese government. So why would a government knowingly poison and destroy its own citizens?

There is a very powerful international hidden nuclear alliance. Nuclear power and uranium supplies and prices are controlled globally by the Rothschild syndicate. This power and control was not at first obvious.

In a two volume series, “The Rothschilds,” Japanese journalist Takashi Hirose exposed the well-concealed mechanisms for the Rothschild syndicate’s control of nuclear power. A Rothschild serves as the business manager for the Queen of England, who privately and secretly owns massive interests in uranium holdings in Africa, Canada and Australia through Rio Tinto Mines.

Hirose’s charts of Rothschild intermarriages in his books reveal that the Rothschild syndicate has for centuries extensively intermarried with royal families and nobility globally. He also revealed that Princess Diana’s mother was a Rothschild through intermarriages several generations back. It is easy to understand how the ruling elite and London Money Power have shared common interests and goals, since they mutually benefit by forming alliances. And they know elected officials are easy to bribe.

Three secret nuclear wars

With little awareness in the global community, the global ruling elite have carried out three continuous and overlapping secret nuclear wars since the end of World War II, with atmospheric testing, nuclear power plants and depleted uranium weaponry. Nuclear technologies certainly meet their depopulation policy goals and, at the same time, the maximization of profits – since they own the uranium sources needed for nuclear fuel and have vested interests in nuclear energy.

There are also ties to pharmaceutical companies, which further their goals of maximizing profits. They get paid to make the mess, they get paid to clean it up and they get paid to treat the illnesses they caused. It is repeat business – extreme capitalism at its best.

The best way to stop it is for cities, towns and villages to get off the grid. Citizens must own the energy companies and shift energy choices to renewable, passive and non-destructive forms of energy. The oil economy is a con game with extortion, racketeering and fraud thrown in.

The “peak oil” scare is a hoax, which any geologist knows because it recycles every 20 years to boost oil prices. His Excellency Shiekh Ahmed Zaki Yamani, Saudi oil minister from 1962 to 1986, believes that the oil age will end not for lack of oil but because of technology: “(T)he oil prices were destined to crash in the long term and the world would never use up the last drop of oil, because it would not need to: ‘The Stone Age did not come to an end because we had a lack of stones, and the oil age will not come to an end because we have a lack of oil.’”28

Globally, nuclear power is being cleverly promoted as “clean energy” and as a solution to global warming by establishment propaganda peddlers like Al Gore, but it is not. There is a hidden agenda and secret economic partnership between members of the ruling elite, with vested interests and huge profits to be made from promotion of nuclear power.

The hidden partnership of ruling elites, more specifically certain members of the British and U.S. economic empires, was exposed in “The Queen’s Death Star: Bush, Cheney, Howard and the Queen.”29 Close to the heart of it is the City of London-centered financier oligarchical group headed by Royal Consort Prince Philip. In faith and in practice, the Royal Consort is a great fan of genocide: “If I were reincarnated, I would wish to be returned to Earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels,” he said.30

The Royal Consort was merely reflecting the pessimistic Malthusian economic predictions regarding the future of humanity and “population explosion” in the 18th century. The wealthy Englishman Thomas Robert Malthus expected that forces such as war, pestilence, famine and plague would eliminate a swelling population. Thoughts of depopulation policy for economic gain by the ruling elite were alive and well, even in the 18th century.

A secret new nuclear war is developing in Asia, promoted by a partnership of the same ruling elites in the British and U.S. economic empires. Recently, international relations have been driving nuclear power as a form of economic aid development in the countries known as the “Tiger Economies”: South Korea, Japan, China and India.

The rising economic power of the Tiger Economies is the greatest threat to the British and U.S. economic empires. Since 2003, nuclear power has been forced onto South Korea, Japan, China and India by President Bush, Vice President Cheney and Prime Minister Howard of Australia.

The developing British nuclear power program in Asia is a revisit to the Opium Wars in China several centuries ago. The Opium Wars were created purely for British economic gain by weakening the leading government in the world for millenia.

The hidden agenda of depopulation and weakening countries that pose a threat is being repeated by impacting the vibrant developing economies in Asia with long lingering illnesses from radiation poisoning and mutilation of the genetic future of vast populations. Nothing new, the British and U.S. economic empires are infamous for being “economic hit men” with an insatiable hunger for other people’s resources and wealth.

Privatizing nuclear weapons for the ruling elites

The nuclear weapons program in the U.K. was privatized in the 1980s. The British contractors are corporations with ties to the London Money Power. Control of nuclear weapons should always be in civilian hands, not under the control of the military, because they will use them to do their job – to kill people and destroy things with no responsibility for the aftermath.

But “in civilian hands” does not mean in the hands of corporations controlled by the ruling elites either. They are even more likely to use them to meet their long held goals of depopulation and accumulation of wealth.

Following in the footsteps of Britain, the U.S. nuclear weapons program has been undergoing privatization over the past four years. George Schultz, former CEO of Bechtel and former Secretary of State, helped facilitate that transition. Bechtel is one of the new corporate partners on the management contract for Los Alamos nuclear weapons lab, in partnership with the University of California, the sole unchallenged manager for 61 years.

Two very important contract changes were made in the process of negotiating the new contract, which was awarded to the University and Bechtel in December 2005. Los Alamos and/or Livermore nuclear weapons labs became manufacturing facilities for production of plutonium cores for nuclear weapons.

This violates the charter of the University of California, which is to conduct basic scientific research at the nuclear weapons labs. And the second very important change in the contract, which was brought up momentarily at a UC Regents’ meeting by a sitting regent, was the contract phrase which eliminates academic freedom for scientists conducting research at Los Alamos.

The change gives the admirals in the Nuclear Weapons Program Office at the Department of Energy the right to “kill or OK” the research of individual scientists at Los Alamos. This also violates the charter of the University of California, which mandates that the nuclear weapons labs are places where basic research is being conducted guaranteeing academic freedom, not a production facility where scientists are told what to do.

UC Vice President Admiral Foley quickly brushed the question under the table and said the change “did not mean anything and would never be used.” A year later at a press conference held during a UC Regents meeting in August 2006, both the president of the University of California, Dr. Dynes, and the president of the UC Regents, Gerald Parsky, denied to this author that Livermore or Los Alamos was producing plutonium cores.

This author referred to a statement to the contrary made by Admiral Linton Brooks, administrator of the National Nuclear Security Administration under the Department of Energy during a UC Regents meeting on May 15, 2003:

“Admiral Brooks also informed the Board of Regents that ‘we’re back in the bomb business’ because Los Alamos had just produced the first plutonium ‘pit’ since Rocky Flats closed down. He indicated that they would be making ‘mini-nukes’ only, and nuclear weapons testing would start at the Nevada Test Site in 2005. An hour later, and 45 miles away, he announced to Livermore employees that ‘we’re back in the bomb business’ and they would be making big ones, little ones and more. By this time it seemed to me that Admiral Brooks was a slippery character, and I began to wonder why an admiral was involved.”31

As several UC PR men jumped in to protect UC President Dynes and UC Regents President Parsky, they suddenly jumped up from the table and rushed out of the press conference without responding to the question. Admiral Brooks’ statement has recently been confirmed:

“Los Alamos National Lab’s plutonium facility has been working multiple shifts lately to get ready for production and to ‘demonstrate’ to skeptics that it can do this job despite long-standing safety-related deficiencies and aging buildings.”32

The new contract will result in more U.S. government corporate welfare centered around the need for and construction of a new nuclear weapons complex known as “Complex 2030.”

“(T)he more of its limited attention the public puts into commenting in the ‘Complex 2030’ scoping process, the more likely it is that pit production will begin and a new pit production factory, the centerpiece of Complex 2030, will actually get built, at LANL.

“An odd thing is happening. In late 2007 the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) hopes to start a new nuclear warhead production run, the first in 18 years. The goal is to make about 70 W88 warheads over a three- to four-year period for deployment on submarine-launched ballistic missiles.

“If built, each new warhead will have 475,000 tons of explosive yield. So this single production run will create more than 10 times the explosive power used in World War II (which was about 3 megatons). Said differently, these new warheads would have the explosive energy of 2,217 Hiroshimas. They would provide more nuclear yield than the entire British arsenal.”33

Eventually the London Money Power will have control of the nuclear weapons programs in the U.K. and the U.S., and the Navy will follow orders and deliver death to the targeted populations. The guarantee of the continued design of depopulation programs through engineered nuclear wars is hard to deny when the ruling elite and the military finally have total control of the nuclear weapons programs in Britain and the U.S. In fact, it was considered by the ruling elite decades ago and is still on the table ready for implementation. The U.S. and Israeli nuclear threat to Iran comes to mind.

“In considering effective ways to develop depopulation programs, the Club of Rome, Bilderbergs, etc. considered a short nuclear war a method of depopulation ... and that consideration was left open. It did not leave the table as an option.”34

Atmospheric testing

The ruling elite have been carrying out secret nuclear wars for the purpose of depopulation since World War II under the guise of atmospheric testing “for national security,” nuclear power “too cheap to meter” and depleted uranium “kinetic energy” bullets. It seems undeniable now that the decision to move nuclear weapons testing from the Pacific region to the continental United States in the early 1950s had a hidden purpose.

The horrific health effects and devastating environmental impact from atmospheric testing had been established by tests in the Pacific conducted by the U.S. government on the Marshall Islands and Bikini Atoll. It is hard to avoid the conclusion that atmospheric nuclear weapons testing at the Nevada Test Site had the hidden benefit of depopulating the United States in the short and the long term.

The U.S. government was well aware of the damage it would do and the outrage of the public if they found out. So, in order to avoid this, the Atomic Energy Commission and the military together formed the Environmental Protection Agency to hide the environmental effects, the National Institutes of Health, the National Cancer Institute, and the Centers for Disease Control. These governmental agencies served as a cover of deception and lies to the public as cancer – including skyrocketing rates of breast cancer – infant mortality and other radiation related illnesses killed, maimed and sickened Americans.

Because of the large number of nuclear tests – nearly 1,000 – at the Nevada Test Site, more than in any other country, testing has affected public health in the U.S. The long term effects are still emerging, such as a diabetes epidemic in the U.S., which has grown into a global diabetes pandemic.

The cost of the nuclear weapons program through 1995 is estimated at $300 billion. The cost of diabetes health care alone in the U.S. in 2005 was over $132 billion and is increasing every year. And globally, governments are spending 10 percent of their health care budgets on diabetes, which is an increasing cost every year. It was a rare disease before 1945.

A recent global mental health survey by the World Health Organization reported that the U.S. had the highest rate of mental illness in the world – in over 26 percent of the population.35 Scores on scholastic aptitude tests (SAT), taken in the last year of high school to determine college placement, declined for the entire U.S. population taking the tests from 480 for children born in 1945 to 420 for children born in 1963 at the peak of atmospheric testing. The test scores never recovered. When atmospheric testing ended in 1963, with the signing of the Partial Test Ban Treaty, nuclear power emerged to poison more generations of children.

Since 1991, global pollution of the atmosphere with depleted uranium radioactive poison gas is another – and even more effective – way to implement the depopulation policy goals of the New World Order. Populations are quickly eliminated in regions where vital mineral and strategic resources are located as mutilated DNA produces increasing numbers of babies with birth defects, which increase in severity over time.

Long lingering illnesses impact the economy of a country and put a health burden on governments already devastated by war. LOW LEVEL RADIATION IS BEING USED AS THE ULTIMATE DEPOPULATION WEAPON OF THE RULING ELITE.

Depopulation targets

Our politicians are willing stooges of a hidden money power that rules the world. The ruling elite have used bio-weapons, chemical weapons, electronic weapons, exotic weapons, nuclear weapons, radioactive weapons and any other means they can to implement the New World Order so they can maximize profits.

In regions that have air pollution, the radiation from depleted uranium acts synergistically with chemical pollution as a “force multiplier” and increases the effects of radiation by 8-10 times. Dr. Ernest Sternglass reported that by reducing low level radiation 90 percent, the radiation damage is decreased by only 50 percent. In other words, at very low levels, less (radiation) is more (damaging), which is known as the supralinear effect.

Uranium-235 was used to “spike” the depleted uranium bombs which the U.S. military gave to Israel to use in their attack on Lebanon in the summer of 2006. This would have the effect of accelerating the adverse health effects in the exposed population in Lebanon.

On July 12, 2006, the day that Israel began its attack on Lebanon, a huge celebration was held by Shell, British Petroleum, Chevron and other U.S. oil companies to mark the opening of the Ceyhan oil pipeline from the Caspian oilfields to a warm water port on the Mediterranean in Turkey. Three more pipelines will be built under the sea to transport water, natural gas and petroleum offshore from Lebanon to Israel.

The “July attack” was the unveiling of the U.S. militarization of the eastern Mediterranean and the introduction of Israel as the military cop in the region to protect the Ceyhan pipeline. Few people realize that Israel will serve as the U.S. “gas pump” at a Red Sea port for Asian countries. Asian countries have been blocked from building oil pipelines to Central Asian oilfields, forcing them to buy oil from the U.S. and other investors via Israel and transport it by sea.

National Security Council (NSC) Memo 200, dated April 24, 1974, and titled “Implications of world wide population growth for U.S. security and overseas interests,” states:

“Dr. Henry Kissinger proposed in his memorandum to the NSC that ‘depopulation should be the highest priority of U.S. foreign policy towards the Third World.’ He quoted reasons of national security, and because (t)he U.S. economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less-developed countries ... Wherever a lessening of population can increase the prospects for such stability, population policy becomes relevant to resources, supplies and to the economic interests of U.S.”

Beirut, Iran, Venezuela, Columbia, the Philippines and other oil rich regions were listed by Kissinger and other U.S. government experts as prime targets for depopulation. Note the oil reserves and pipelines in those regions. Before 1920, Herbert Hoover discovered the largest oil deposits in the world offshore from Vietnam.

The prime purpose of the Vietnam War was for depopulation through the use of defoliants such as Agent Orange to cause crop failure and starvation in the population. This was the stated purpose of using a defoliant – later developed as Agent Orange – when it was created in 1943. According to Thomas Ferguson in the State Department’s Office of Population Affairs, Vietnam backfired and the population increased during the Vietnam War. But the residual long term effects of Agent Orange have done their job, causing severe birth defects and illnesses in the post-Vietnam War population.

The end game

Behind all of the civil wars, big wars and small wars in the past 60 years are special interests in Britain and the U.S. Henry Kissinger’s fingerprints are all over the depopulation program and the use of depleted uranium. Kissinger was recruited from academia by the Rockefellers, but his real master is Jacob Rothschild and the London Money Power.

The ultimate goal of the global ruling elite is to strip the economic resources of nations and gain total control of the world’s wealth while reducing the global community to the elite fascist capitalists’ and communists’ original concept of communism: a one-class system of dumbed down slave workers. This has been a stated goal of the ruling elite for several hundred years, even before the global population had increased to the modern levels that are causing concern.

Here is a statement by David Rockefeller, chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations from 1970 to 1985: “Some even believe we (the Rockefeller family) are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”36

Modern agricultural technologies imposed by the IMF and the World Bank have actually decreased food production in regions where ancient indigenous agricultural technologies produced 10 times more food, such as around Lake Titicaca, in Peru and Bolivia. The “population explosion” is an excuse for intentional depopulation and massive genocide by ruling elites and it is now rapidly being implemented on a scale that is unprecedented.

Since 1991, in Iraq, Yugoslavia and Afghanistan, the U.S. and its British military partner have looted and bombed the cultural relics of those countries into radioactive rubble, destroying families and erasing the collective memory and expression of ancient cultures and civilizations. The looting of the Baghdad Museum was planned in the Pentagon in January 2003 with the same antiquities dealers who looted the Nazi collections after WW II. The destruction of national identity is also part of “the plan.”

“To achieve one-world government,” said Brock Chisholm, former director of the U.N. World Health Organization, “it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, their loyalty to family traditions and national identification.”

The ultimate elite fascist capitalists’ and communists’ dream is underway, and the citizens of the world are the real target of the “war on terrorism” at local, regional and global levels. The purpose of this war is to bring about a global authoritarian state. Genocidal programs are now being carried out globally through any methods possible and extend to a scale of mass human genocide.

The ultimate war crime is omnicide, which has changed the genome of all living things on Earth. The genome of all living things, which evolved over 4.5 billion years, has been changed irreversibly in less than a century. The ruling elites have made this decision for all of us. This is a game where everyone loses … on the Queen’s Death Star.

Genocide

Article 2 of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide defines genocide as follows: “In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:

(a) Killing members of the group;

(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;

(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;

(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;

(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.”

Wen: China, Mexico are partners, not competitors

( 2003-12-14 09:31) (Xinhua)

Premier Wen Jiabao said on Friday that China and Mexico are partners instead of competitors and that more cooperation is in the interests of both sides.

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and Mexican President Vicente Fox answer questions during a press conference at the Palacio Nacional in Mexico City on Friday, December 12, 2003. [AFP]

Wen made the remark while addressing a breakfast with about 60 prominent business leaders. Mexican Secretary of Economy Fernando Canales attended the breakfast.

Since China and Mexico established diplomatic relations in February 1972, bilateral ties have developed greatly with fruitful cooperation in various fields, he said.

Citing Chinese official statistics, Wen said bilateral trade, at only 12.99 million US dollars in 1972, soared to 3.98 billion dollars in 2002. Cooperation in investment has also increased rapidly.

There are 46 Chinese enterprises operating in Mexico, including its largest textile project overseas, which was put into operation two years ago. Mexico has 53 investment projects in China.

Mexico is China's second largest trading partner in Latin America and a major investment destination, and China has become Mexico's major trading partner in Asia.

Wen acknowledged the presence of some disputes in bilateral trade, but he stressed his agreement with Mexican President Vincente Fox's comment made two years ago during his trip to China that the two countries are partners rather than competitors.

The view, echoed recently by Mexican Foreign Trade Commission Chairman Carlos Rojas, "is true to facts and represents our common understanding," the Chinese premier said.

Firstly, Wen said, cooperation between the two countries is based on common ground. As important developing countries, China and Mexico are both keen to develop their economies and improve their people's living standards.

Stronger economic and trade cooperation will boost economic development of both sides, Wen said.

Secondly, the two economies, complementary in markets, resources, technologies and managerial expertise, can cooperate in various fields for mutual benefit and a win-win outcome.

Economic and trade cooperation would also facilitate the two sides' efforts in sharpening their international competitiveness, Wen added, noting that trade between the two countries have become even more smooth since China's accession to the World Trade Organization, resulting in fresh channels and opportunities for cooperation.

Thirdly, overall bilateral trade has developed soundly, Wen said. Acknowledging that the Mexican trade deficit with China is a reality, Wen, however, stressed that the problem can be addressed through development.

China is willing to work with the Mexican government to narrow the deficit and combat the smuggling of Chinese products, Wen said.

Fourthly, Wen said, the two countries are also partners in the field of investment. Both are adjusting and upgrading their industrial structures, and need to draw in foreign investment and technologies.

The premier noted that China has attracted more foreign investment in recent years thanks to the progress in its reforms and opening-up and a strong momentum for economic growth with the improvement of investment environment that facilitates fair and just competitions.

Mexico has also made great achievement in attracting foreign investment and accumulated rich experiences in the process, Wen said, stressing that China and Mexico can learn from each other to make up deficiencies.

On China's domestic front, Wen said the country has set a grand goal of building a well-off society in the first two decades of this century. By 2020, China's gross domestic product (GDP), calculated at the current exchange rate, will have quadrupled that of 2000, reaching 4 trillion dollars.

The premier reaffirmed China's determination to push forward reform and opening-up and follow an all-round, coordinated and sustainable development strategy.

He said China's further economic development is not only conducive to greatly improving the living standards of 1.3 billion Chinese people, but will also bring new opportunities for other countries around the world, including Mexico.

Noting that China and Mexico are situated in two continents, Wen said the two countries enjoy a huge space for cooperation, each serving as the bridge and gateway for the other to tap the market of their respective continents.

The Chinese government attaches great importance to the development of cooperation with Mexico, which not only conforms with the common interests of the two peoples, but is also of great significance to promoting the development of Asia and Latin America and to enhancing world peace and development, the Chinese premier said.

Wen also suggested that the two countries make joint efforts in the following aspects to lift the China-Mexico economic cooperation to a new level:

First, both sides should expand trade volume and improve trade structure. China is willing to increase imports from Mexico, while it also hopes that Mexico can facilitate Chinese products' entry into the Mexican market, especially electro-mechanical and hi- tech products, the premier said.

Second, both sides should increase mutual investment and expand areas of cooperation. Wen expressed China's readiness to work for agreements on investment protection and avoidance of double taxation.

China is also willing to strengthen investment cooperation in agriculture, fisheries, mining, petrochemicals, household appliances, processing and assembly of light industry products, and science and technology, he added.

Third, exchanges between the two countries' enterprises should be enhanced and mutual understanding be promoted. Wen noted that China's Ministry of Commerce has already invited Mexican Secretary of Economy Fernando Canales to lead a delegation of Mexican entrepreneurs to attend an investment and trade fair scheduled for next September in Xiamen.

In return, China's Ministry of Commerce and Council for the Promotion of International Trade will respectively organize Chinese entrepreneurs to visit Mexico and seek for cooperation opportunities.

Fourth, the 11th meeting of China-Mexico joint committee of economy and trade will be held next March and the two sides are expected to focus on new means and ways of carrying out mutually beneficial cooperation.

After the breakfast, Wen also paid a visit to the headquarters of the Mexican Oil Company.

The Chinese premier ended his two-day official visit to Mexico on Saturday afternoon and leaves for Ethiopia, where he will pay an official visit and attend the opening ceremony of the second ministerial meeting of the China-Africa Cooperation Forum.
