The news this week of exhumed body of the Turkish President Turgut Ozal, who died in 1993, officially of heart failure. His body showed signs of several poisons, including radioactive polonium, and Yasser Arafat’s remains being exhumed for a murder inquiry, has led me to share a gut feeling I had in the summer of 2011, I will call it one of my conspiracy theories, because this is what it is, a theory, but no satire intended.
As for Yasser Arafat and the forensic experts from France, Switzerland, Russia etc. looking to prove something by looking for polonium-210 in Arafat’s remains, this is most likely a complete waste of time because of the very short half-life of this substance, not only that but I thought it was already a foregone conclusion polonium was used to assassinate the Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and Palestinian leader. High levels of polonium-210 were found on Arafat’s toothbrush, clothing and keffiyeh.
Polonium was first made well known when it was used to kill KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko who turned on the Kremlin, was a critic of Putin, had been looking into the assassination of Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya and claimed in his book FSB agents had been responsible for the bombing of apartment blocks in Moscow and two other cities in 1999; it only takes a dose of polonium the size of a speck of pepper to be lethal.
Now do I believe polonium was used on Russell Means? I don’t think so but anything is possible these days; do I believe something was? I believe there’s good plausibility, and here’s why.
I have followed the American Indian movement, posted quite a few reports and videos of Russell Means(the founder of the Republic of Lakotah) over the years and am a subscriber to his newsletter; I remember in 2011 Russell announced he was going with a delegation to the United Nations Headquarters in New York to discuss with other nations the international character of treaties of the United States and the Lakotah Nation.
I remember thinking this isn’t good, Russell is going to be in harm’s way, and I hope he doesn’t get one of those CIA pin-pricks. It was just a gut feeling and still is. I did speak this feeling but never publicly or in writing, now in hind-site I wish I did.
Very shortly after, Russell was diagnosed with cancer.
Russell Means was trying to make the US government honor treaties, return stolen lands and be recognized by the international community through the UN, in his words “for the re-establishment of our freedom to be responsible” a sovereign nation (Republic of Lakotah)inside the borders of the United States.
Here are a couple other quotes from Russell Means
“Every policy now the Palestinians are enduring was practiced on the American Indian.”
“What the American Indian Movement says is that the American Indians are the Palestinians of the United States, and the Palestinians are the American Indians of Europe.”

Russell Means was always a warrior and an arrow in the side of the US government; but going to the international community through the UN was when I believe the powers that be decided to surgically remove this arrow.
Statement by Russell Means, Republic of Lakotah United States, State Department “Listening Session” in Albuquerque, New Mexico, 16 March 2010.
Once again, the occupation government of the United States of America has trotted out its dogs and ponies to provide a smokescreen and diversion from its continuing crimes against the indigenous peoples and nations of the Western Hemisphere. The reason for today’s media spectacle is supposedly for the US State Department to “listen” to input from indigenous peoples and nations for inclusion in the U.S.’s report to the United Nations Human Rights Council, universal periodic review process.
As we can see, many indigenous people have been duped to participate, yet again, in a lying and duplicitous process of the United States. The United States has absolutely no interest or intention of admitting to the world its human rights record that is neither justifiable nor defensible. In particular, the record of the United States with regard to historical, and ongoing, violations of over 370 treaties that were negotiated and signed with indigenous nations must be, but will not be, addressed by the United States.
Instead, as is its ongoing practice, the United States will use this session, and the one tomorrow on the territory of the Diné
(Navajo) Nation, as its justification that indigenous peoples were “consulted,” and “listened to,” while the U.S. simultaneously lies to the world about its disgraceful human rights record.
The Republic of Lakotah will not legitimize this embarrassing process. Instead, we will submit our report directly to the UN Human
Rights Council, not to be filtered or sanitized by the State Department. Let us be clear, our report will be scathing. The United
States continues, on a daily basis to violate the terms of the 1851 and 1868 Fort Laramie Treaties with the Lakotah. Our report will
indicate that the United States never intended to abide by the terms of the treaties, and has violated them consistently from the
time of their signing to the present.
Our report will also cite the United States’ own language in acknowledging that “the treaties retain their full force and effect even today because they are the legal equivalent of treaties with foreign governmentsand have the force of federal law.” Periodic Report
of the United States of America to the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, April 23, 2007, paragraph 335. In
light of the United States’ own admissions, in addition to reporting to the Human Rights Council on the egregious human rights record of the US towards indigenous peoples, the Republic of Lakotah will report to the Council and to the world, the exercise of its own
rights under principles of international law. The United States has continually breached the treaties with the Lakotah, and
international law allows the Lakotah to return to our status quo ante position prior to the signing of the treaties.
On March 30, 2010, the Republic of Lakotah will repeat its position to the United States, and will transmit its communication to the
President of the United States and to the Secretary of State, demanding that the United States cease and desist it activities in
Lakotah territory, and insisting that the United States withdraw its presence from our homeland. (End)
When Russell Means took The Republic of Lakotah directly to the UN Human Rights Council in 2011 after threatening to do so in 2010 he only lived another year.
More related information below to back up my gut feeling that Russell Means was surgically removed along with many others.
We are not in Kansas anymore:
Just like most of us, there are people that go to work every day but there’s a big difference, the dissimilarity is there are teams going to work every day in chemical and biological weapons laboratories; here are a few of the known ones-
United States biological weapons program
Dugway Proving Ground
Granite Peak Range
Fort Detrick and the U.S. Army Biological Warfare Laboratories
One-Million-Liter Test Sphere
Fort Douglas, Utah
Deseret Test Center
Fort Terry/Plum Island Animal Disease Center
Horn Island Testing Station
Pine Bluff Arsenal
Rocky Mountain Arsenal
Vigo Ordnance Plant
These scientist, chemist etc. their daily job is researching and weaponising biological agents and who knows what else; I won’t even touch on what the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)involvement is in this, with delivery systems etc. I will leave that to the readers imagination or own investigation.
These folks go to work all day every day with the likes of
Staphylococcal Enterotoxin B (SEB), toxin produced by Staphylococcus aureus, used as an incapacitating agent
Stem rust, both wheat and rye stem rust, fungal anticrop agent
Rice blast, fungal anticrop agent
Argentinian hemorrhagic fever (AHF)
Bolivian hemorrhagic fever (BHF)
Chikungunya virus (CHIKV)
Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE)
Late blight of potato
Rift Valley fever (RVF)
Western equine encephalitis (WEE)
Remember it is a well-known fact AIDS was manufactured decades ago, I understand cancer is also (the facts are out there); does population control mean anything?
These flu’s, cancers and AIDS are new in the scheme of time so I am not so quick to retort when I see headlines like ‘CIA infects South American leaders with cancer’ or ‘CIA KILLING LATIN AMERICAN LEADERS’ or Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez warning the disease may be a “new weapon of the empire to eliminate unwanted leaders.”
“I am far from delusions of persecution, but the fact remains – the murder as a way of removing unwanted politicians has been always practiced by the Empire (USA). I have no proof, and yet it is obvious that there is something strange with progressive politicians in Latin America,” said Chavez.
“Would it be so strange that they’ve invented the technology to spread cancer and we won’t know about it for 50 years?” Chavez asked.
“It is very hard to explain, even with the law of probabilities, what has been happening to some leaders in Latin America. It’s at the very least strange,” he said. Chavez said he received warning from Cuba’s former leader Fidel Castro, who has survived hundreds of unsuccessful assassination attempts. “Fidel always told me, ‘Chavez take care. These people have developed technology. You are very careless. Take care what you eat, what they give you to eat … a little needle and they inject you with I don’t know what” he said.
What is Chavez talking about?
Brazil’s president Dilma Rousseff (lymphoma cancer), her predecessor Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (throat cancer),former Argentine president, Nestor Kirchner (colon cancer),former Cuban president Fidel Castro (stomach cancer),Hugo Chavez himself is fighting cancer, Bolivian president, Hugo Banzer (lung cancer) and again Evo Morales (nasal cancer) and Paraguayan president Fernando Lugo (lymphoma cancer). Chavez hinted the US might have found a way to give Latin American leaders cancer In his December 28, 2011 end of the year address to the Venezuelan military.
We are all to believe these days that it’s almost norm to get cancer when just decades ago doctors would come from all over when a child was diagnosed with cancer; now it’s commonplace.
The 1975 Church Committee hearings, an investigation into the CIA’s plots to assassinate foreign leaders, (today called dictators) it was made publicly known they had developed and used a weapon that causes heart attacks and cancer. CIA weapon developer Mr. Charles Senseney at the Fort Detrick facility in Maryland, testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee and described an umbrella poison dart gun he had made. He said it was always used in crowds with the umbrella open, firing through the webbing so it would not attract attention, it fired a frozen liquid poison dart the width of a human hair and a quarter inch long that could penetrate clothing, it was almost undetectable in a person’s body leave nothing but a tiny red dot on the skin, the victim may feel as if bitten by a mosquito, or they may not feel anything at all.
In the laboratory they give animals cancer by injecting them for research, so it is not so far-fetched to believe this technique has been weaponised, in fact it would be naive not to understand it has been for some time now, and is far more advanced than what was disclosed in the Church Committee hearings today.
“Can you give a person cancer? If cancer in animals can be caused by injecting them with cancer viruses and bacteria, it would certainly be possible to do the same with human beings! In 1931, Cornelius Rhoads, a pathologist from the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, purposely infects human test subjects in Puerto Rico with cancer cells; 13 of them died. Though a Puerto Rican doctor later discovers that Rhoads purposely covered up some of the details of his experiment and Rhoads himself gives a written testimony stating he believes that all Puerto Ricans should be killed, he later goes on to establish the U.S. Army Biological Warfare facilities in Fort Detrick Maryland (origin of the HIV/AIDS virus, the Avian Flu virus and the Swine Flu / A-H1N1 virus), Utah and Panama, and is named to the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, where he begins a series of radiation exposure experiments on American soldiers and civilian hospital patients.”www.whale.to/b/assassination_disease.html
Aaron Russo died of cancer, he courageously confronted the IRS, also the producer of Mad as Hell and his famous movie Freedom to Fascism, of course we can’t forget about Andrew Breitbart, he was a major threat to the powers that be and the day before he was going to make public,information he had on Barack Obama, he dropped dead.
Elizabeth Edwards was suddenly diagnosed with cancer while her husband was campaigning against Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for the presidency of the United States.
Martha Mitchell was put in a mental institution for telling the press that “The Mafia is in the Whitehouse” during the Nixon administration and died of cancer soon after.
Jim Garrison New Orleans D.A. investigated the JFK assasination died of cancer.
Black Panther leader Kwame Ture claimed the CIA poisoned him with cancer before his death in 1998.
Ted Gunderson a former FBI agent, critic and whistleblower and a speaker on government coverups died in July,20ll of cancer.
Bob Marley died at 36 years old of cancer, he was ranting against the American CIA and its continuing destabilizing and undermining of Jamaica and about the Vietnam War.
Carl Colby the son of the director of the CIA William Colby gave a pair of football boots to Bob Marley whose main loves in life were music and football.
When he tried the boots on he was hurt by a small piece of copper wire inside which pierced his toe, which became infected then cancerous shortly after.
T Stokes wrote an article on this, view it here
The list could go on in volumes, not even including the suicides by shotgun to the back of the head and plane crashes; even Jack Ruby died of lung cancer a few weeks after his conviction, the cancer cells were found to be not the type that originate in the respiratory system and he also had said to his family he was injected with cancer cells in prison when he was treated for a cold.
It’s just all coincidence as usual, Right?
I for one am skeptical of the circumstances surrounding Russell Means cancer, and still have that feeling in my gut, if this makes me conspiracy theorist, then so be it. I smell a rat!
RIP Russell Means
