Over 52 million people tune in to watch anticipated ‘Putin’ documentary

The release of the legendary and much-anticipated documentary “Putin” is upon us. In the video below, Dmitri Kiselyov, Russia’s Top Anchor, covers the premier in which 22 million Russians tune in. If even one million Americans did so, US-Russia relations may improve incredibly, by listening to the wise words of Vladimir Putin free of “interpretation” by low-brow western propaganda.

He speaks very seriously, and grimly about what would happen if nuclear weapons would be used against Russia. There is also a key aspect of humanity, and reason in his speech, a reminder that Russia would NEVER want such a war, because it would be catastrophic for both the world and Russia. He chillingly but truthfully assures that Russia would never use nuclear weapons aggressively, when he says:

Why do we need a world in which Russia does not exist?

That is the kind of profound simplicity we have come to expect from Putin, and we hope to hear more golden soundbites like that in the documentary “Putin”.

If the documentary seems familiar to you, it’s because we’ve already covered stories released from it before the premiere, which were very popular.

Honestly, who doesn’t love listening to tales of Putin simply being Putin, they are truly worthy of becoming the heroic bard-tales of our era.

For Western Consumption: The Power of Putin

A film Produced by CNN & the BBC

By bringing these contrasting films together, agendas become transparently self-evident revealing who is behind the ongoing conflicts between Russia & NATO, their spokesmen & their henchmen.

As for dealing with an increasingly oppressive system at home that is behaving more & more like an omnipotent spoiled child,  you need look no further than The Federalist Papers which lay out what the US is: a Commercial Republic.
It’s interest lies in commerce & is nothing more than a harvesting machine under color of law. The US & UK as well as many other Nation States, are now occupied by & through the grandest quiet war the world has ever seen..{psychological warfare[

Most countries today operate in much the same way – The great experiment (USA) is unique & stands apart, in that, the people still have a chance to turn things around & take back their country. (USC Article V )

The fact of the matter is this is just the tip of the ice berg, and the rabbit hole goes far deeper than any of us ever imagined. If we really want to change our lives, it will take massive amounts of studying and a healthy dose of trial and error. We need to educate ourselves not only on the history of how this all came about, but also stay on the forefront of new technologies that can be used to change our status and obtain our remedy as close to 100% of the time as possible.

This is just one reason to present information in this way to learn from & include some of the top thinkers to present this life changing information  to you as a point of reference for research.

Are You One Of The 170 Million Americans Drinking Radioactive Tap Water?

According to a new bombshell report from the Environmental Working Group (EWG), tap water for more than 170 million Americans contains radioactive elements that may increase the risk of cancer. The group examined 50,000 public water systems throughout the United States and found from 2010 to 2015, more than 22,000 water utilities reported radium in treated water.

 

Radiation in tap water poses serious health threats, particularly for children, and women during pregnancy.

The most common radioactive element the EWG found was radium. Studies show that radium above the EPA legal limit may cause depression of the immune system, anemia, cataracts, fractured teeth, and of course cancer.

Radium is a naturally occurring radioactive element that resides on the earth’s crust. The EWG emphasizes that higher radium levels in tap water occur when uranium mining or oil and gas drilling exploration companies disturb the earth’s geology. The process triggers radiation called “ionizing because it can release electrons from atoms and molecules, and turn them into ions,” explained the EWG. The EPA warns that all ionizing radiation is carcinogenic, implying that radium above the EPA limit is all too prevalent in America and it could be causing lots of cancer.

In 158 public water systems serving some 276,000 Americans in 27 states, the EWG found that radium exceeded the federal legal ceiling for radium-226 and radium-228.

The EWG’s Tap Water Database covers six radioactive contaminants, including radium, radon, and uranium. The database shows radium-226 and radium-228 are the two most common forms of radiation in every state.

The EWG expresses frustration with the 41-year old federal drinking water standards that are not designed to protect human health. New public health goals were set in 2006 by the California Office of Environmental Hazard Assessment, but have been widely overlooked by the federal government.

Federal drinking water standards are based on the cost and feasibility of removing contaminants, not scientific determinations of what is necessary to fully protect human health. And like many EPA tap water standards, the radium limits are based on decades-old research rather than the latest science.

The EPA’s tap water limits on the combined level of the radium isotopes and the combined level of alpha and beta particles were set in 1976. They were retained in 2000, when the uranium standard was established.

To more accurately assess the current threat of radiation in U.S. tap water, we compared levels of the contaminants detected by local utilities not to the EPA’s 41-year-old legal limits, but to the public health goals set in 2006 by the respected and influential California Office of Environmental Hazard Assessment.

California public health goals are not legally enforceable limits, but guidelines for levels of contaminants that pose only a minimal risk – usually defined as no more than one expected case of cancer in every million people who drink the water for a lifetime. 

California standards are hundreds of times more stringent than the current EPA limits for radium-226 and radium-228. If the federal government adopted the new tests, it would mean that no more than one case of cancer per million people per water supply. That would likely cause a public health emergency across the United States, but apparently, that is something the government has no intentions in doing in the intermediate time. So, for now, Americans will enjoy a higher risk of cancer one glass of water at a time, because, perhaps, cancer is very profitable for pharmaceutical companies, or the country is just flat broke and cannot afford new infrastructure.

“Most radioactive elements in tap water come from natural sources, but that doesn’t take away the need to protect people through stronger standards and better water treatment,” Olga Naidenko, senior science adviser at EWG, said in a statement.

“Millions of Americans are drinking water with potentially harmful levels of radioactive elements, but the outdated federal standards mean many people don’t know about the risk they face when they turn on the tap.”

Radium contamination in public water systems nationwide:

Radium concentrations in drinking water are drawn from EWG’s Tap Water database, and represent the average of all samples of treated drinking water collected from 2010 to 2015 for each water system. Samples reported as non-detections are entered as zero, which could underestimate the actual radium concentration in drinking water.

Federal drinking water regulations set a Maximum Contaminant Level, an enforceable legal standard, of 5 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) for the combined level of two isotopes of radium: radium-226 and radium-228. Some water utilities and states report individual levels of these isotopes, while others report a single combined radium value of a specific sample. When the combined level was not reported by the water utility, EWG added measurements of radium-226 and radium–228 to calculate it, as available.

This map displays radium data for 1,850 community water systems serving more than 10,000 customers, and 1,620 community water systems serving between 3,301 and 10,000 customers. The water system locations were mapped based on the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Information System, or SDWIS. Locations are approximate and are meant to visualize the general area served by a specific water system – not to give the specific address of the water treatment plant. The map does not include water systems that did not detect radium between 2010 and 2015. It also does not include those water systems for which EWG could not confirm geographic locations.

On the map, dots indicating water system locations are color-coded according to the combined radium levels. Dot size reflects the water system’s size of above or below 100,000 customers.

TRITIUM

THE UNACKNOWLEDGED ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM

Tritium (3H) is the radioactive isotope of hydrogen. It is a low – range beta-emitter with a half-life of 12.3 years and a maximum decay energy of 18.2 keV (average 5.7 keV). Tritium is formed naturally through cosmic ray interactions in the upper atmosphere, though anthropogenic tritium emission rates considerably exceed its natural production rate. Tritium most commonly occurs as tritiated water (3HOH), and in some industrial/ military instances as elemental tritium gas (3HH), which is steadily oxidized to 3HOH in the environment. Therefore, in most instances, tritium can be accurately described as radioactive water. Tritium is created in most nuclear reactors by activation of hydrogen (1H) in their cooling water and moderator circuits and as a tertiary fission product in nuclear fuel. In heavy water reactors, larger amounts of tritium are created by the quicker activation of deuterium (2H) in the heavy water of their cooling and moderator circuits.
 
Because of the low range of its β particles, radiation exposures from tritium only occur when it is inside the body – that is, tritium is considered an internal emitter. This does not mean that tritium outside the body is harmless, as tritiated water vapour readily permeates the skin and, when inhaled, easily transfers across lung and buccal membranes.
 
From the NRC:
  • Tritium emits a weak form of radiation, a low-energy beta particle similar to an electron. The tritium radiation does not travel very far in air and cannot penetrate the skin.
  • Like normal hydrogen, tritium can bond with oxygen to form water. When this happens, the resulting “tritiated” water is radioactive. Tritiated water (not to be confused with heavy water) is chemically identical to normal water and the tritium cannot be filtered out of the water.
  • Nuclear power plants routinely release dilute concentrations of tritiated water.
  • Tritium is almost always found as tritiated water and primarily enters the body when people eat or drink food or water containing tritium or absorb it through their skin. People can also inhale tritium as a gas in the air.

So which is it?

Common sense & general science agree that any man- made radioactive isotope created during a chain reaction destroys & mutates cells at the DNA level & all radioactive isotopes created during a chain reaction produces a cumulative effect on all organic life. Diluting the language with newsspeak terms like: an “event” “below acceptable levels”  “low-level release” “controlled release” etc.  along with passifying out-right lies  like: “radiation protection” “no risk” “low-risk” — to health  etc. & those comparing man-made ionizing radiation to naturally occurring radiation  is evidence & an admission of complicity  to crimes against humanity & murder after the fact.  [Genocide] THERE IS NO SAFE LIMIT OF IONIZING RADIATION! Radiation emitted by potassium from bananas or organic rock is not in the same ballpark with plutonium or uranium & their daughters from a fission reaction – although there are so-called “experts” who argue on that very point. 

 Tritium is by far the most common nuclide encountered in “radiation protection” as it is emitted in large quantities from all nuclear facilities – both military and civil. On the military side, the largest sources are military production reactors and nuclear weapons manufacturing facilities, as tritium is used in nuclear weapons as trigger and reflector. These include the very large United States facilities at Savannah River, Hanford, Rocky Flats, Fernald and Oak Ridge, and the similar – sized Russian facilities at Chelyabinsk, Tomsk and Krasnoyarsk. Data from these facilities is sparse and only available up to 1982. For unknown reasons, the normally
comprehensive United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation reports do not contain data on tritium releases from these facilities after 1982. (Incidentally, the De-Program Network & the Hounds of Fukushima – an active anti-nuclear group working to expose the under reported & often covered up negative effects of radiation has acquired data indicating the average nuclear power plant reactor releases 100 Million gallons of tritiated water vapor into the atmosphere annually.) Another military source is nuclear submarines, which discharge tritium from their reactors during refitting in port.
 
From a 2016 report in June after being first reported with problems at Indian Point NY in December of 2015.
Two years after being fined for falsifying safety records, nine months after a transformer exploded at the Indian Point Nuclear Reactor just 37 miles from midtown Manhattan, and two months after Entergy – the plant’s operator – shut down the Unit 2 reactor after a major power outage cut power to several control rods (when the company assured that no radioactivity was released into the environment), this afternoon NY Governor Andrew Cuomo said he learned that “radioactive tritium-contaminated water” had leaked into the groundwater at the nuclear facility in Westchester County.

In December, Cuomo ordered an investigation into Indian Point after a series of unplanned shutdowns, citing its risks being just outside the city and in the populated suburbs.

Cuomo said the “latest failure at Indian Point is unacceptable” adding that the DEC and health department should “employ all available measures, including working with Nuclear Regulatory Commission, to determine the extent of the release, its likely duration, cause and potential impacts to the environment and public health.”

In other words, nothing will change.

COLONIAL ORIGINS JAMESTOWN

COLONIAL ORIGINS
JAMESTOWN

from Jamestown Rediscovery

The Far East has its Mecca, Palestine its Jersualem, France its Lourdes, and Italy its Loretto, but America’s only shrines are her altars of patriotism – the first and most potent being Jamestown; the sire of Virginia, and Virginia the mother of this great Republic.
— from a 1907 Virginia guidebook

COLONIAL ORIGINS JAMESTOWN
In June of 1606, King James I granted a charter to a group of London entrepreneurs, the Virginia Company, to establish a satellite English settlement in the Chesapeake region of North America. By December, 108 settlers sailed from London instructed to settle Virginia, find gold and a water route to the Orient. Some traditional scholars of early Jamestown history believe that those pioneers could not have been more ill-suited for the task. Because Captain John Smith identified about half of the group as “gentlemen”, it was logical, indeed, for historians to assume that these gentry knew nothing of or thought it beneath their station to tame a wilderness. Recent historical and archaeological research at the site of Jamestown suggest that at least some of the gentlemen and certainly many of the artisans, craftsmen, and laborers that accompanied them all made every effort to make the colony succeed.

On December 20, 1606, three merchant ships loaded with passengers and cargo embarked from England on a voyage that would later set the course of American history. The Susan Constant, Godspeed and Discovery reached Virginia in the spring of 1607, and on May 14, their 104 passengers all men and boys began building on the banks of the James River what was to be America’s first permanent English colony, predating Plymouth in Massachusetts by 13 years.

The Virginia Company explorers landed on Jamestown Island, to establish the Virginia English colony on the banks of the James River 60 miles from the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. By one account, they landed there because the deep water channel let their ships ride close to shore; close enough, to moor them to the trees. Recent discovery of the exact location of the first settlement and its fort indicates that the actual settlement site was in a more secure place, away from the channel, where Spanish ships, could not fire point blank into the Fort. Almost immediately after landing, the colonists were under attack from what amounted to the on-again off-again enemy, the Algonquian natives. As a result, in a little over a months’ time, the newcomers managed to “beare and plant palisadoes” enough to build a wooden fort. Three contemporary accounts and a sketch of the fort agree that its wooden palisaded walls formed a triangle around a storehouse, church, and a number of houses. While disease, famine and continuing attacks of neighboring Algonquians took a tremendous toll on the population, there were times when the Powhatan Indian trade revived the colony with food for copper and iron implements. It appears that eventual structured leadership of Captain John Smith kept the colony from dissolving. The “starving time” winter followed Smith’s departure in 1609 during which only 60 of the original 214 settlers at Jamestown survived. That June, the survivors decided to bury cannon and armor and abandon the town. It was only the arrival of the new governor, Lord De La Ware, and his supply ships that brought the colonists back to the fort and the colony back on its feet. Although the suffering did not totally end at Jamestown for decades, some years of peace and prosperity followed the wedding of Pocahontas, the favored daughter of the Algonquian chief Powhatan, to tobacco entrepreneur John Rolfe.

The first representative assembly in the New World convened in the Jamestown church on July 30, 1619. The General Assembly met in response to orders from the Virginia Company “to establish one equal and uniform government over all Virginia” which would provide “just laws for the happy guiding and governing of the people there inhabiting.” The other crucial event that would play a role in the development of America was the arrival of Africans to Jamestown. A Dutch slave trader excanged his cargo of Africans for food in 1619. The Africans became indentured servants, similar in legal position to many poor Englishmen who traded several years labor in exchange for passage to America. The popular conception of a race-based slave system did not fully develop until the 1680’s.

The Algonquians eventually became disenchanted and, in 1622, attacked the out plantations killing over 300 of the settlers. Even though a last minute warning spared Jamestown, the attack on the colony and mismanagement of the Virginia Company at home convinced the King that he should revoke the Virginia Company Charter. Virginia became a crown colony in 1624. The fort seems to have existed into the middle of the 1620s, but as Jamestown grew into a “New Town” to the east, written reference to the original fort disappear. Jamestown remained the capital of Virginia until its major statehouse, located on the western end of the APVA property, burned in 1698. The capital was moved to Williamsburg that year and Jamestown began to slowly disappear above ground. By the 1750s the land was owned and heavily cultivated primarily by the Travis and Ambler families.

A military post was located on the island during the American Revolution, and American and British prisoners were exchanged there. In 1861 the island was occupied by Confederate soldiers who built an earth fort near the church as part of the defense system to block the Union advance up the James River. Little further attention was paid to Jamestown until preservation was undertaken in the twentieth century.

In 1893 Jamestown was owned by Mr. And Mrs. Edward Barney. The Barneys gave 22 ½ acres of land, including the 1639 church tower, to the APVA. By this time James River erosion had eaten away the island’s western shore; visitors began to conclude that the site of James Fort lay completely underwater. With federal assistance, a sea wall was constructed in 1900 to protect the area from further erosion. The remaining acreage on the island was acquired by the National Park Service in 1934 as part of the Colonial National Historical Park. Today, Jamestown is jointly operated by the APVA and NPS.

The Wisdom Of Our Founders

The Wisdom Of Our Founders

 

George Washington

“I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary,
too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious.”
Thomas Jefferson Letter to William Ludlow, 1824

The roots of American history go back to the beginnings of man. Our country is the product of man’s hopes, fears, desires, events, motives and a cast of thousands. In the many pages of recorded history are rich tapestries of heroes and villains. There is one thread, however, that is ALWAYS present in these tapestries which is seldom recorded, seldom seen, sometimes sensed, and that is greed. In the background of every new adventure, every war, someone or some group has staked wealth and power. This power is not visible to the masses. It is tightly held by the “elite” and denied to the public at large. Only the players and events themselves are recorded.

The chapters at the top left and the bullets at the bottom of this page will take you to fascinating sites that have recorded our history. Chapter II will take you to the roots of our history that are a little harder to find and are today never shown in our public schools.

The Republic

“The falsification of history has done more to impede human
development than any one thing known to mankind”

Rousseau 1712-1778

It is interesting to note that many (probably most all) modern day accounts of this country’s birth refer to it as a “democracy”. This is one of the greatest misrepresentations that can be put in print. This country was formed as a REPUBLIC, not a democracy. As a point of historical FACT, a democracy has never worked and has ALWAYS evolved into a socialistic dictatorship.

While in Europe cultivating support of the revolution, Ben Franklin was asked what type of government the Americans were forming. Franklin replied, “A Republic, if we’re vigilant enough to preserve it.”

It was not until during the great depression that anyone referred to the United States as a democracy and only because certain villains with power brainwashed it into our psych. Say the “Pledge of Allegiance” to yourself and see which word is spoken. A Republic makes every citizen a “king”, a king without subjects. A Democracy dissolves us all into the body politic and destroys freedom.

Democracy is when two wolves and a sheep vote on what they will have for lunch.

 

REPUBLIC OR DEMOCRACY?


THE SOLDIER’S TRAINING MANUAL
,… issued by the War Department, November 30, 1928, set forth the exact and truthful definition of a democracy and republic – this manual was ordered destroyed by F.D. Roosevelt.

Democracy:

  1. A government of masses.
  2. Authority derived though mass meeting or any form of direct expression.
  3. Results in mobocary.
  4. Attitude toward property is communistic-negating property rights.
  5. Attitude toward law is that the will of majority shall regulate, whether it be based upon deliberation or government by passion, prejudice, and impulse, without restraint or regard to consequences.
  6. Results in demagogism, license, agitation, discontent, anarchy.

Republic:

  1. Authority is derived through the election by the people of public officials best fitted to represent them.
  2. Attitude toward property is respect for laws and individual rights, and a sensible economic procedure.
  3. Attitude toward law is administration of justice in accord with fixed principles and established evidence, with a strict regard to consequences.
  4. A greater number of Citizens and extent of territory may be brought by its compass.
  5. Avoids the dangerous extreme of tyranny or mobocracy.
  6. Results in statesmanship, liberty, reason, justice, contentment, and progress.

The greed of Hollywood

Sucking off media profits to make millionaires is one thing, but the exploitation of an unsuspecting public under the guise of disaster relief is swamp scum. This exposé exposes what it means to sell your soul.

 

The Thing That Ate Hollywood

The death of the motion-picture business as founded has been on the horizon since the Industry learned all the wrong lessons from the success of Steven Spielberg’s Jaws back in 1975. Whereas theaters had once touted air-conditioning as the prime means of putting fannies in the seats when the weather outside was steamy, the “summer blockbuster” now enticed them with chills and thrills. When Jaws begat Star Wars and the customers were shelling out record sums of money to watch what used to be called “B” movies, the moguls were quick to respond.

[A word to our younger readers: once upon a time in a galaxy not far away at all, there were “A” movies and “B” movies, so called because they were two halves of something called a “double bill,” on which for the price of a single ticket you got two movies: a big-budget picture (in color!) with famous stars, and a cheaper film, usually in black-and-white, plus a couple of short subjects and maybe a cartoon or two. Similarly, 78-rpm records had an “A” side — the song you wanted to hear — and a “B” side, which you got more or less for free. You could look it up.]

In due course, the summer blockbusters morphed into “tentpole” movies — mega-productions around which the studios would hang their entire yearly schedules, until at last the tentpoles became the schedules, with a few voguish pictures chucked into theaters just before Christmas in order to qualify for “awards season” Oscars. Civil-rights dramas, coming-of-age movies (by which read: first sexual experience), and gay coming-of-age movies — this is how a movie that nobody you know actually saw, Moonlight, won Best Picture last year.

And so it has come to pass that, at what’s left of the multiplexes in what’s left of shopping malls, you can see just about any kind of movie you want as long as it’s a “franchise” movie — in other words, a sequel or a remake of something you’ve already seen — or a superhero movie — in other words, based on a comic book; you know, the kind of thing you gave up reading when you were 14 years old. Just about every other genre — westerns, dramas, thrillers, action-adventures, romantic comedies, slapstick comedies — has been subsumed into the maw of the Things That Ate Hollywood.

Don’t blame “Hollywood” for this state of affairs — mostly because there is no “Hollywood” and hasn’t been since the death of the studio system and the disappearance of the last of the independently owned studios themselves. The old moguls — whether semi-literate glove salesmen or fast-talking Sammy Glicks — at least knew which business they were in. They had come from the Jewish Rialto on Second Avenue in Manhattan, from the nickelodeons, and the schmatta trade: they knew that the customer was a) fickle and b) king. When they went to Hollywood, they understood instinctively they needed a wide array of wares, goods that appealed to as broad a clientele as possible, not a one-size-fits-all union suit….

In a move that will reverberate from Hollywood and Silicon Valley to TVs and smartphones around the world, the Walt Disney Company said Thursday that it had reached a deal to buy most of 21st Century Fox, the empire controlled by Rupert Murdoch, in an all-stock transaction valued at roughly $52.4 billion.

While the agreement is subject to the approval of antitrust regulators — and the Justice Department recently moved to block a big media company, AT&T, from becoming even bigger — Disney is acknowledging that the future of television and movie viewing is online. The acquisition, which would make Disney a colossus unlike anything Hollywood has ever seen, is the biggest counterattack from a traditional media company against the tech giants that have aggressively moved into the entertainment business.

    "I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology....Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated."
    -- Bertrand Russell in The Impact of Science on Society  
     
    “Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar.”
