Arne Gunderson and Ian Goddard analyze the National Academy of Sciences BEIR report from 2006 on cancer risks from radiation exposure. Also, more recent studies of nuclear industry workers shed light on increased cancer risk from even allegedly “low levels” of radiation exposure. Chilling scientific facts contradict the feel-good corporate propaganda streaming from governments and media organizations. Black and white facts expose the Big Lie of the supposed safety of nuclear power. Fukushima’s devastation is a global catastrophe that should be of interest to every person.
Cancer Risk To Young Children Near Fukushima Daiichi Underestimated
Fairewinds analyzes cancer rates for young children near Fukushima using the National Academy of Science’s BEIR (Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation) VII Report. Based on BEIR VII, Fairewinds determines that at least one in every 100 young girls will develop cancer for every year they are exposed to 20 millisieverts [millisievert (1 mSv = 0.001 Sv)] of radiation. The 20-millisievert/ year figure is what the Japanese government is currently calculating as the legal limit of radiological exposure to allow habitation of contaminated areas near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
In this video, Fairewinds introduces additional analysis by Ian Goddard showing that the BEIR VII report underestimates the true cancer rates to young children living near Fukushima Daiichi. Looking at the scientific data presented by Mr. Goddard, Fairewinds has determined that at least one out of every 20 young girls (5%) living in an area where the radiological exposure is 20 millisieverts for five years will develop cancer in their lifetime.

This looks to be a very ambitious documentary that seeks to change the world. It calls out the waste inherent in the globalized system, the unnecessary transporting of goods all over the world, and the drive for a more localized economy.

Mainstream news covers, yet continues to cover-up, the 9/11 attacks.
Chris Matthews asks CIA (allegedly former) official Robert Baer about the US role in 9/11, and Baer replies that it’s only the “crazies” who suggest such things. Baer readily admits, however, to a treasonous cover-up of the Saudi role in the 9/11 attacks AFTER the fact. Baer says not one word about the misdeeds inside the US government — and Baer’s own CIA — BEFORE the attack, you know, when it actually mattered most.
This is a half-truth at best, and meant to mislead whatever audience tunes in about the role of the Saudis, while ignoring that the Saudis, the Pakistanis and most of the dictatorial regimes of the world work for Uncle Sam. That is why billions of dollars in so-called “aid” flow in yearly and sophisticated weapons systems are transferred to these heinous dictatorships. It’s why they are protected from UN scrutiny. It is why the US military “trains” their police forces and militaries in “counter-insurgency” so that they may better oppress their own people and prevent democracy from taking over.
That is called US “foreign policy” by those who actually know what goes on, as the broadcast mentions the politically-articulate 20% of the population.
I suppose we should be grateful that this news story is being given any airtime at all, as it clearly implicates the Saudi government for an act of war on September 11th 2001, and indirectly implicates US high officials for Article 3 treason:
“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” -U.S. Constitution

“Far from helping an embattled nation, NGOs operating in Syria are being accused of helping the push towards military intervention. Some are peddling unverified reports to deliberately encourage foreign action. The agencies hold sway with groups like NATO, which has weighed in on their findings before – with deadly consequences. RT’s Marina Portnaya has more.”

And should be prosecuted criminally, if the US government wasn’t the most corrupt institution on the face of the earth.
Also, British Petroleum covered up a similar oil rig blowout in the Caspian Sea two years before it destroyed the Gulf of Mexico. Arrests don’t seem to be occurring.

Polanski strikes again. From the trailers I hadn’t expected much from Carnage. The disjointed one-liners lacked the context and the build-up necessary to truly sell the film. But Carnage turned out to be one of the funniest films I’ve seen in a long time.
The script is based on God of Carnage, or Le Dieu du carnage, by Yasmina Reza, who co-wrote the screenplay with Polanski. The play won the Tony award in 2009.
I’ll try not to spoil anything, but suffice to say nearly every character eventually goes at it with every other. The four characters are drawn from a spectrum of personality types, with Jodie Foster on one side and Christoph Waltz her polar opposite. The other two, Foster’s husband John C. Reilly and Waltz’s wife Kate Winslet are more centered, and alike at the play’s opening. The civil discourse between the two sets of parents breaks down and devolves gradually toward … carnage. In the end the film seems to reject all extremes and to point to some compromise somewhere in the middle.
Say what you will about Roman Polanski, but he can take one apartment and four actors and have you on the edge of your seat and laughing out loud, and not worried about the confined production space. He’s truly a remarkable director with a body of work that is among the top directors of all time.

Armed foreign Jihadist terrorists and mercenaries continue their one year long campaign to destabilize Syria, backed by foreign governments, including Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, France, Britain and the United States of America. This is what foreign policy looks like, even as state-approved propaganda blames all atrocities on the Syrian state, which has been reacting to this invasion and responding to cross border international terrorism.
