Bush To Impose Psychiatric Drug Regime

..."The TMAP medication guidelines were established in 1995 as an "expert consensus" based on the opinions of prescribers, rather than an analysis of scientific studies. The pharmaceutical companies who funded the scheme include Janssen Pharmaceutica, Johnson & Johnson, Eli Lilly, Astrazeneca, Pfizer, Novartis, Janssen-Ortho-McNeil, GlaxoSmithKline, Abbott, Bristol Myers Squibb, Wyeth-Ayerst and Forrest Laboratories.

The drugs recommended as "first line treatment", many of them with potentially deadly side effects, are patented expensive drugs produced by the sponsors of the guidelines: Risperdal, Zyprexa, Seroqual, Geodone, Depakote, Paxil, Zoloft, Celexa, Wellbutron, Zyban, Remeron, Serzone, Effexor, Buspar, Adderall and Prozac...."

"TMAP was extended to cover children, again by "expert consensus", and no doubt the Bush program for widespread testing in schools all over the US will find hundreds of thousands if not millions of new "customers" for the dangerous psychiatric drugs the scheme promotes."

"I'll be able to affect the behavior of 80 per cent of the people in this town without their knowing it"

Could be a sinister objective?

It would require increasing the density of power with more mobile telephones, UMTS, more antennae and frequencies: Wi-Fi, DECT, Bluetooth...and to revoke the Precautionary Principle?

Dr. Rauscher-Bise (USA) is an enthusiast: "Give me the money and three months", she boasts, "and I'll be able to affect the behavior of 80 per cent of the people in this town without their knowing it. Make them happy - or at least they'll think they're happy. Or aggressive."

“The main problem lies in the delivery of the these brain waves to the target, because they all lie in the extremely low spectrum, between 0.1 and 25 Hertz [Cycles], with all control brain waves in an even narrower central band between 0.6 and 10.2 Hertz. These are effectively the same as “earth” frequencies, meaning that they are very hard to direct via conventional radio transmission.”

This is achieved by using an extremely high frequency microwave beam, which is then amplitude modulated at exactly the same rate as the desired control brain wave.

* Is UMTS amplitude modulated?

Apocalypse Bush!

San Francisco Chronicle


This is the great thing about rabid fundamentalism. You really just don't have to give a damn. ... This much has become clear. Bush is, more than anything else, an extreme fundamentalist Christian. He is widely regarded as the most openly pious and sanctimonioous president in modern American history. He actually preaches the GOP screed in evangelical churches across America. He panders so slavishly to the anti-choicers and the Bible-thumpers and the homophobes it makes Jerry Falwell swoon and giggle. And Bush actually says, out loud, that God speaks through him ... that it is the Almighty's wish that we take control of these angry pip-squeak nations and in so doing kill thousands of civilians and tens of thousands of young Iraqi soldiers, as over 1,000 American soldiers are now dead over a makeshift cause that never really existed. God wanted it this way, that's why...

How many ways was war in Iraq wrong?

by Michael August



I am a Vietnam Veteran and I have participated in a number of political demonstrations in Nashville as a member of the local chapter of Veterans for Peace. This organization is made up of people who have served in the armed forces and count themselves among those who stand up against the militarism and the politics of fear that have taken over our country. We believe that war should be an action of absolute last resort in defense of our country and not the preferred alternative. It should certainly not be used for selfish economic gains ('No War For Oil'). We are living in a time when our leadership has convinced many Americans that going to war is in their best interests. It is wrong. We were told that the war in Iraq was a pre-emptive war, but this is not so. ... The war, which has caused so much destruction and death on both sides, was not only unnecessary, it was unjustifiable...

Swift Boat censorship

The recent hot topics of American politics -- John Kerry's service in the Vietnam War, whether he lied about it, the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth ads claiming that he lied, and George Bush's reaction to those ads -- seem to have come right out of an alternate dimension.

Although a candidate's military experience and honesty about it are important factors in how much Americans can trust him to be commander in chief during wartime, some voters are far more likely to be focused on the actual issues of the day, including a war on terror that has so far consumed thousands of lives and hundreds of billions of dollars...

Christian Science Monitor


In the wake of the Republican National Convention, [New York] Mayor Michael Bloomberg gives the police department an 'A+' for keeping calm in the Big Apple even as hundreds of thousands of demonstrators descended to voice their opposition to the Bush administration. But activists and civil libertarians say the most the police deserve is a 'B.' While order was kept, they contend, the use of orange plastic nets to corral large numbers of people for arrests, some innocent bystanders, and the extended detentions of protesters violated the most basic constitutional freedoms.

They also say some of the most spirited protests were thwarted under the guise of the threat of terrorism. Several groups are considering bringing civil rights litigation against the city."

Dear Dr. Eugenia Birchelay,

Please, can you confirm the reception of this email.

In the next Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, I suggest to study mainly the modulate microwaves emission and the mind control.

It is excellent that one Scientific from Russia gives more information about USA than all Scientifics from USA.

· Is the UMTS amplitude modulate?

· Why is emitting DECT microwave day and night “inside the house”?

Messungen sind reine Augenwischerei und Geldverschwendung. Es gibt keinen Mobilfunksender in Deutschland, der die viel zu hohen offiziellen (thermischen) Grenzwerte überschreitet. Diese spiegeln nicht den Stand der Wissenschaft wieder, sondern sind ausschließlich an den finanziellen Interessen der Mobilfunkbetreiber orientiert. Die Grenzwertempfehlungen kommen von einem Privatverein namens ICNIRP und entbehren jeder wissenschaftlichen Grundlage, da schädliche biologische (athermische) Effekte inzwischen weit unterhalb dieser Limits nachgewiesen und mehrfach reproduziert wurden. Unter unabhängigen Wissenschaftlern besteht hierüber weitestgehend Einigkeit.

Zahlreiche Einrichtungen bieten Strahlenmessungen an, bei denen Personal mit völlig unterschiedlichem Kenntnisstand eingesetzt wird.

Für Mobilfunk-Netzbetreiber ist es problemlos möglich, Sendeanlagen zentral in ihrer Leistung zu drosseln bzw. "herunterzufahren". Daher ist es wichtig, für Messungen nur Firmen zu beauftragen, die das Vertrauen genießen, den Netzbetreiber nicht vorab über einen Messtermin zu informieren. Die Messung sollte nicht mit einem billigen Handgerät, sondern mit einem Spektrumanalysator durchgeführt werden.

Wissenschaft zu Mobilfunk


Das Märchen mit den 20 000 Studien: Tausende wissenschaftlicher Studien sollen die Unschädlichkeit des gepulsten Mobilfunks beweisen

Bitkom-Behauptung: 20.000 Studien sollen Entwarnung geben

Quelle: Interview des Tagesspiegels mit Bitkom-Chef Volker Jung

Geben 20.000 Studien wirklich Entwarnung?

Wo sind diese 20.000 Studien?

Der Vorsitzende des Industrielobbyvereins Bundesverband Informationswirtschaft, Telekommunikation und neue Medien e.V. (BITKOM) Dr. Volker Jung hat in einem Interview mit dem Berliner Tagesspiegel, in dem er sich zum Thema Mobilfunk und Gesundheit äußerte, folgendes erklärt: "Kein einziges von insgesamt 20.000 Gutachten hat unterhalb der bestehenden Grenzwerte auch nur einen Verdacht auf Schadwirkungen festgestellt."

Lassen wir einmal dahingestellt, dass Herr Dr. Jung mit "Gutachten" wohl "Studien, Untersuchungen" meinte, denn ein Gutachten wendet nur den bereits existierenden Wissensstand auf eine konkrete Situation an und führt nicht zu neuen wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen.

Allein die Höhe dieser Zahl liess uns stutzig werden. Ein Rechenexempel: Wenn man z.B. von einer durchschnittlichen Länge von 100 Seiten pro Studie ausgeht und am Tag 55 Seiten liest, benötigt man 100 Jahre (Tag und Nacht), um diese Studien zu lesen.

Die Elektrosmognews wandten sich daraufhin an Bitkom und baten um Erklärung sowie um Zusendung der Liste dieser 20.000 Studien mit Verfasser, Publikationsorgan, Erscheinungsjahr und Seitenzahl.

Herr Hintemann von Bitkom antwortete uns. Die Liste konnte er uns nicht vorlegen, er verwies uns auf die Datenbank des Forschungszentrum für Elektro-Magnetische Umweltverträglichkeit der Rheinisch-Westfälischen Technischen Hochschule Aachen, die im Internet unter www.femu.de erreichbar ist. Dieses Forschungszentrum steht unter der Leitung von Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. med. J. Silny, einem Industriewissenschaftler, der seit vielen Jahren für die Mobilfunkindustrie tätig ist. Herrn Prof. Silny Unabhängigkeit zu unterstellen, wäre also gewagt. Dennoch, wir suchten die Datenbank von Herrn Prof. Silny auf und fanden dort nur etwas mehr als 5.000 Einträge, meist in Englisch.

Diese Einträge sind noch nicht einmal alles Studien und der größte Teil davon hat mit Mobilfunk wenig bis nichts zu tun. Dennoch fanden wir selbst in der FEMU-Datenbank nach kurzem Suchen schnell gleich mehrere Studien mit "Verdacht auf Schadwirkungen" durch elektromagnetische Felder verschiedener Art, u.a. Arbeiten von Hardell, jenem schwedischen Forscher, dessen Studien bei den derzeit laufenden Gehirntumorprozessen gegen die amerikanische Mobilfunkindustrie eine Schlüsselrolle einnehmen.

Wir fragten uns nun, wo denn nun diese ominöse "20.000 Entwarnungs-Studien-Liste" sei und kontaktierten Bitkom erneut.

Herr Hintemann antwortete erneut. Diesmal nannte er eine andere Quelle, den "Leitfaden zum Umgang mit Problemen elektromagnetischer Felder in den Kommunen", zu finden unter http://www.emf-risiko.de/leitfaden-emf/index.html, erarbeitet von der Programmgruppe Mensch, Umwelt, Technik des Forschungszentrums Jülich, einer sehr industrienahen Institution, deren Mitarbeiter sich seit Jahren durch Verharmlosung von Umweltgefahren hervortun und im Auftrag von Mobilfunk- und Atomindustrie durch die Lande ziehen und bei Veranstaltungen und in Fernsehsendungen auftreten, um die Sorgen besorgter Bürger herunterzuspielen. Die Programmgruppe Mensch Umwelt Technik (MUT) wird von Dr. Peter M. Wiedemann geleitet, Psychologe und in der Vergangenheit bereits in ähnlicher Weise für die Atomindustrie tätig. Als Partner der Programmgruppe werden beispielsweise T-Mobil und Vodaphone Produktentwicklung angegeben.

Im Kapitel 2 dieses sogenannten "Leitfadens" findet sich dann auch diese ominöse Zahl 20.000 und zwar in folgendem Kontext: "Forschung zu elektromagnetischen Felder gibt es seit mehreren Jahrzehnten. Ungefähr 20.000 Arbeiten existieren und jährlich kommen etwa 500 dazu."

Zum einen wird hier von "Forschung zu elektromagnetischen Feldern" gesprochen und nicht von den speziellen Mobilfunkfrequenzen. Bekannt ist auch, dass GSM-Mobilfunk nicht schon seit Jahrzehnten existiert.

Zum anderen ist auch hier keine Quellenangabe zu den 20.000 Studien zu finden. Das Quellenverzeichnis des Pamphlets ist äußerst dürftig und beschränkt sich fast ausschließlich auf Arbeiten von Prof. Bernhardt und Dr. Norbert Leitgeb, beide bekannte Mobilfunk-Lobbyisten.

Die wissenschaftliche Grundlage des "Leitfadens" ist dürftig und einseitig.

In dem Dokument http://www.fz-juelich.de/mut/hefte/heft_81.pdf teilt die Programmgruppe MUT die Mobilfunkgegner in Gruppen ein (Seite 58, Abschnitt 5.3.) und analysieren diese für ihren Auftraggeber. Offensichtlich, damit dieser dann "zielgruppenspezifisch" gegen diese vorgehen kann.

Nachdem wir also auch mit dem Hinweise auf den "Leitfaden" der Programmgruppe MUT des Forschungszentrums Jülich nicht zufrieden waren und dort ebenfalls keine Quellenangaben zu den 20.000 Entwarnungsstudien zu finden waren, haben wir uns erneut an Bitkom gewandt, mit der Bitte, uns die Liste der 20.000 Studien vorzulegen.

Herr Dr. Kullnick antwortete uns diesmal wie folgt:

"Wir bitten Sie, sich an die forschungsfördernden Institutionen bzw. öffentlichen Behörden zu wenden. BITKOM sieht damit Ihre Anfrage als beantwortet an."

Wir konstatieren, Bitkom ist nicht in der Lage, eine Liste der 20.000 Entwarnungsstudien vorzulegen. Bitkom ist gleichfalls nicht in der Lage, seriöse Quellenangaben für die Herkunft der 20.000 Studien zu machen. Nichtsdestoweniger sah der Bitkomvorsitzende Jung kein Problem darin, in einem Interview mit einer Tageszeitung diese ominöse Zahl zu nennen, ohne hierfür Belege zu haben.

Für uns ist deshalb nur eine Schlußfolgerung möglich: Die 20.000 Entwarnungsstudien existieren nur in der Phantasie der Mobilfunkindustrie und ihrer Lobbyverbände.

Help Improve the Forest Service's Off-Road Vehicle Rule

Send a fax before September 13 to the Forest Service about its proposed off-road vehicle rule. The future of our National Forests and the values they represent are threatened by growing and uncontrolled use of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), dirt bikes and other off-road vehicles (ORVs), also known as off-highway vehicles (OHVs). On July 7 the U.S. Forest Service announced plans to specify which roads and trails are open to off-highway vehicles. As written, the proposed rules will not protect our National Forests. Please ask the Forest Service to improve its proposed off-road vehicle rule, to better protect public lands and wildlife.

Click on the link below to quickly send a fax!

In many of America's National Forests, off-road vehicles are able to drive almost anywhere. The Forest Service reports that more than 273,000 miles of roads and other routes are open to various off-road vehicles. In some forests, ATVs and dirt bikes can travel virtually without limit across hundreds of thousands -- even millions -- of acres. Our National Forests are threatened by growing and uncontrolled use of ATVs, dirt bikes and other off-road vehicles. Your comments can help ensure that meaningful regulations are adopted.

Remember, the comment period ends on September 13 and the Forest Service will not accept comments after that time.

Thank you for helping us protect the environment for future generations.

The Curse of Dick Cheney


Genocide in Texas

FYI. Recent Article. One correction: Western Shoshone Title is still intact – despite what the U.S. says or the perception it has created to cloud the issues. As the InterAmerican Commission on Human Rights, Organization of American States found in its 2003 Final Report: in the Western Shoshone case, the Indian Claims Commission is an illegitimate means for the U.S. to use to claim title to these lands. The U.S. must either give the Western Shoshone a full and fair hearing on the issue of title or negotiate a fair resolution.

Perception is only 9/10 of the law if we let it be. You can’t sell a nation by finding a few individuals who are willing to accept a check. If that was the case, maybe a few of us with Irish blood can accept some British monies and sell out the historic struggle of the Irish people?

As Chief Raymond Yowell of the Western Shoshone National Council stated just last week: “The federal government cannot unilaterally sell out a Nation’s homeland. We are still here and we will continue to assert our rights by way of our ancestors and under the Treaty of Ruby Valley. Our connection with the land was given to us by the Creator, not the U.S. – the U.S. cannot take what it did not give. We will use our rights to protect the land. Our title is still intact – we repeat: Western Shoshone Land is Not For Sale.”

Genocide in Texas

Posted: August 24, 2004 - 10:41am EST
by: Brenda Norrell / Southwest Staff Reporter / Indian Country Today

REDLAND, Texas - It is a history that the United States buried, along with the Indian women and children. But there is an invoice for the smallpox blankets given to Indians to eradicate them and a printed record of the scalp laws with payments of 10 pounds of silver for the scalp of an Indian child.

Steve Melendez, Pyramid Lake Paiute and president of the American Indian Genocide Museum in Houston, said the genocide of American Indians is a fact of history that must be recorded accurately in history so Indian nations can heal and racism in America can be countered.

Melendez said the invaders of this continent carried out systematic genocide to eradicate Indians and it continues today, with the recent theft of Western Shoshone land in Nevada by the United States government.

Melendez spoke on genocide at the commemoration of the massacre at Neches, near Tyler in northeast Texas, where the Texas militia murdered 800 Indian men, women, children and elderly on July 16, 1839.

On display was the invoice documenting the smallpox that was distributed to Delaware Indians by way of blankets and handkerchiefs in 1763.

"I think it is ironic that we stand here today at the site of a destroyed Delaware village. For it was the Delaware Indians in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania who were given the smallpox blankets back in 1763. Many people don’t believe that the Indians were given smallpox blankets but we have found the invoice from Fort Pitt."

The invoice states: "To sundries got to replace in kind those which were taken from the people in the hospital to convey the smallpox to the indians. Viz: 2 Blankets; 1 silk hankerchef and 1 linnen."

Speaking to several hundred people, including Cherokee and other tribes, Melendez said, "Was there genocide in America?

"The killing here continued in the surrounding area until July 24. A militia force was stationed to the north to cut the Indians off if they fled north but they never saw battle. They were not needed."

The people were slaughtered. Texas Cherokee and 13 associated bands led by Chief Bowles and Chief Big Mush were among 800 men, women, children and elderly killed on July 16, 1839. The bands included Shawnee, Alabama, Delaware, Kickapoo, Quapaw, Choctaw, Biloxi, Ioni, Coushatta, Mataquo and Caddo of the Neches.

"At some point in history, America has to acknowledge the wrongs that were done and call them what they were - Genocide," Melendez said.

"At some point in history, America has to acknowledge that the way they confiscated Native lands was not right. At some point in history, America has to call things like what happened here - they have to call it extermination, which it was."

"On July the 7th, our President George W. Bush signed into law bill H.R. 884 which arbitrarily confiscated 24 million acres of Western Shoshone Land."

Melendez pointed out that in its final report to Congress, the Indian Claims Commission, which was the vehicle used to value the Western Shoshone land, describes itself as a commission and not a judicial court. This commission arbitrarily set the price of Western Shoshone lands at 15 cents an acre.

"Fifteen cents an acre! We had the All Star Game in Houston last Tuesday and hot dogs were selling for five dollars apiece. At this kind of an exchange rate, the Western Shoshone would have to sell 33 acres of land just to buy a hot dog. History seems to keep repeating itself over and over again," Melendez said.

"Any memorial that is erected here should not be called the Battle of the Neches. We should honor the dead with the truth, and call it what it was - genocide in the Americas."

During the 11th annual Neches memorial ceremony, tribes gathered to pray at a monument erected in memory of Cherokee Chief Bowles.

Danny Hair, chairman of the North American Indian Cultural Association of Texas, told those gathered that the spirits of the ancestors remain strong here. The American Indian Cultural Society hosted the ceremony, which included Cherokee Nation Chief Chad Smith and Cherokee National Youth Choir from Tahlequah, Okla.

Handel verkauft weiterhin Tropenholz aus Raubbau - Unternehmen verarbeiten Holz aus unklarer Herkunft

Regenwälder: Handel verkauft weiterhin Tropenholz-Gartenmöbel aus Raubbau


Auch in der kommenden Saison werden auf dem deutschen Markt Gartenmöbel aus Tropenholz erhältlich sein. Diese Bilanz zieht die Umweltorganisation Robin Wood nach Recherchen auf der internationalen Gartenmöbelmesse Spoga, die gestern in Köln zu Ende ging. Ein erheblicher Teil der auf der Messe präsentierten Holzmöbel sei aus tropischen Hölzern gewesen, so die Organisation. Etliche Händler, die auch den deutschen Markt bedienten würden dabei unter anderem Holz aus den letzten Urwäldern Indonesiens zu vermarkten oder Teak aus Burma, durch dessen Verkauf sich das dortige Militärregime mit Devisen versorge.

In zahlreichen Unternehmen stammen Holzlieferungen aus unklaren Quellen. Das ist das Ergebnis einer Untersuchung des WWF. Die Tierschutzorganisation hatte verarbeitetes und exportiertes Holz der deutschen Holzgroßhändlern untersucht. Dabei stammen laut WWF-Angaben in vielen Unternehmen die Holzlieferungen aus unklaren Quellen. Das gehe soweit, dass die Hersteller zum Teil ihre Lieferanten nicht nennen könnten. Besonders betroffen sei der Holzhandel aus Nordwest-Russland - mit rund 774 Millionen Hektar bilden die russischen Wälder etwa ein Fünftel der weltweiten Waldflächen. In dieser Region boome der illegale Handel.
